Relay to highlight young

Harry’s cancer battle

• By Tom Doudney

A LITTLE boy who won his

battle with cancer and his

mother, who lost hers, will be

celebrated when the Rolleston

Relay for Life is held next month.

Although he is only four, cancer

has had a massive impact on

Harry Boaz’s life.

Just 24 hours after his birth,

Harry underwent surgery to

remove a tumour the size of

his head. At 22-months-old his

mother Heather Boaz died of

breast cancer. She had neglected

her own health to focus on her

unborn baby, Harry, after a scan

revealed the tumour at the base

of his spine.

Harry’s own cancer returned

and after Mrs Boaz’s death he

spent almost a year fighting the

disease, including going through

chemotherapy.

A team called Harry’s Heroes

will take part in the Relay for

Life event at Brookside Park,

April 1 and 2.

The event is a Cancer Society

fundraiser which raises awareness,

celebrates people who have

fought cancer and remembers

those who have lost their lives to

the disease.

It is held at multiple locations

around the country and involves

team members walking, jogging

or running a relay, family friendly

activities and entertainment

for those not on the track, and a

candlelit closing ceremony.

This will be the third Relay

for Life for the Harry’s Heroes

team, with the first having

taken part when Harry was still

fighting the disease.

The team began when Harry’s

father Andrew Boaz, a teacher

at Rolleston School, was approached

by a parent about the

idea and staff and pupils at the

school also joined.

Mr Boaz said the support had

meant a lot, particularly when

he had to rush Harry, who was

struggling to cope with the

disease and chemotherapy, to

hospital during the first year that

the team took part.

“I remember driving past the

reserve and seeing it all lit up.

Just knowing that people were

there showing support meant a

lot on one of the worst nights,”

Mr Boaz said.

“It was raining but there were

still people at the park.”

Harry’s Heroes will wear

rainbow uniforms this year, as

that is Harry’s favourite ‘colour’,

and will use his treasured Buzz

Lightyear toy, from the movie

Toy Story, as a baton. There are

about 40 people in the team.

Mr Boaz, Harry and his other

son Flynn, 7, will take part.

SELWYN TIMES

FROM

THE

REPORTER’S

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

Good on the Boaz family, who

will be among many taking part

in this year’s Relay for Life in

Rolleston on April 1 and 2.

This might be a relay but in one

sense this is a family which has

already run a marathon.

Not long after losing his mother

to breast cancer, Harry Boaz

fought and won his own year-long

battle with cancer at the age of

two.

It must have been hard on his

father Andrew and brother Flynn

who also lost a wife and mother

and had to support Harry.

The family had plenty of support

from a well-wishing community

and it’s clear this has meant a

lot to them.

So good on the Boaz family,

good on everyone else who will

take part in the Relay for Life

and good on everyone who helps

support the Cancer Society with a

donation this year.

Burglars steal remotes

ashion

from unlocked vehicles

• By Tom Doudney

POLICE ARE frustrated that

people are making life easy for

thieves and burglars by leaving

cars unlocked and garage door

openers inside.

Gardening

There has been a spate of at

least six incidents in the Lincoln

area over recent weekends, with

several on Caulfield Cres, with

dirt bikes, diving gear, tools,

cash and cards

among the

items taken.

The burglars

had entered

otoring

people’s garages

using garage

remotes stolen

from unlocked

vehicles.

Alex Pickover

These followed

a spate of at least 15 thefts

from cars in Rolleston over

the weekend of March 4-5.

Again cash, cards, tools and

asty Bites

other items were taken from

the vehicles which were also

left unlocked in their owners’

driveways.

The cars involved were parked

TOO EASY: Burlgars have accessed garages in the Lincoln

area using garage door openers left their owners’ unlocked

vehicles. ​

at addresses on Oaktree Lane,

Manor Drive, Hulme Lane,

Ellington Mews, Heritage Close

and Delamare Way.

Sergeant Alex Pickover said

people needed to be more

security conscious and it was

disappointing that people were

making it so easy for offenders

to enter their vehicles and

garages.

“There are just simple things

that people need to do to reduce

the potential of them being

victims,” he said.

“Locking cars up at night

time, not leaving valuables

in clear sight and not leaving

garage door openers in the car,

it’s common sense really.”

In Brief

MONEY RAISED

A Givealittle page has raised

more than $4000 for Early

Valley Rd residents Ken and

Denise McKenzie who lost

20km of fencing in the Port

Hills fire. While their house

sustained only minimal

damage, the fire destroyed the

fencing as well as a 100-tree

feijoa orchard, native trees

established over 25 years and all

the grass on their 100 acre farm.

Only the house was insured.

The page, http://givealittle.co.nz/

cause/help4ken, was created by

the McKenzies’ friend Vaughan

Johnson with the aim of

covering the cost of new

fencing, expected to cost about

$9000.

LIBRARIES CLOSED

Libraries and district council

service centres will be closed

on March 29 while staff attend

professional development

training. Sessions planned for

the day will cover library spaces,

increasing customer access to

collections and the delivery of

outreach programme. Two staff

training and meeting days are

held a year. The district council’s

Rolleston Headquarters will

remain open. The mobile

library service visits which

would normally run on March

29 will now occur on March

31 with stops at Arthur’s Pass,

Springfield and Castle Hill. See

www.selwynlibraries.co.nz for

more details.

RESTRICTIONS LIFTED

Fire restrictions have been

lifted in the rural plains of

Selwyn following recent rainfall.

Principal rural fire officer

Douglas Marshall said that

while the fire risk had been

reduced, people should continue

to be cautious about lighting a

fire in the open.

PM AT SCHOOL

Prime Minister Bill English was

at Lemonwood Grove School for

its opening ceremony on Friday.

The school opened in January

but decided to hold its opening

ceremony later.

WRITERS’ RETREAT

A one-day writers’ retreat at

Prebbleton Community Cottage

could be just what’s needed for

those who have been dreaming

about putting pen to paper.

Teacher aides want pay rise

on Thursday as part

Leeston teacher aide

Ali Coomer argues that

rise

A little while ago, a young

man tapped me on the shoulder

and said “gidday Miss G.”

After a moment, I realised that

whom I had been a teacher aide

Gardening

all through primary school. The

boy who could barely recognise

the first letter of his name when

I met him was now a builder and

thriving. This is why I love my

job.

Teacher aides and other school

valuable part of our education

We are highly-valued by our

school colleagues and the children

and their parents. But not,

it seems, by the Government.

Most people would be shocked

to realise that many support

staff earn hardly more than the

minimum wage, even after years

of experience, and we have little

job security from year to year

– sometimes even from term to

term. Sometimes the child with

hours or even their jobs.

This year, the situation has

worsened. School budgets were

frozen in last year’s budget

and, as our union NZEI Te Riu

Roa negotiates a new collective

agreement with the Ministry

of Education, the problem has

become clear. We deserve a pay

rise, but if the ministry agrees to

a rise, schools can’t afford to pay

us any more so hours and jobs

will be lost, and students will

miss out. We’re stuck unless the

Government agrees to increase

funding to schools.

Starting last week until March

31, NZEI is running about 200

meetings across the country for

support staff to discuss the situation.

We’re standing firm – we

deserve a two per cent pay rise

and the Government needs to

pay for it, because our schools

certainly can’t. We hope that you

will stand with us too.

Holly Traxler-Puddle, of

Avonhead, reacts to an

article in the Selwyn Times

(March 14) about ECan

investigating measures to

protect the Selwyn River. In

the article, Selwyn Waihora

Zone Committee chairman

Allen Lim said about 15-20

per cent of the river’s low

flows could be attributed to

irrigation

What a bunch of hooey! The

Selwyn River is dead because

of the irrigation in the area –

certainly not the pittance of 15-20

per cent as stated by Mr Allen

Lim. Where is he getting his

information from?

If you are from this area, you

have seen the decline in the river

water since the dairy industry got

well paid from the price of milk

solids.

This river needs to be saved

now, not by 2040 – it will be long

gone by then.

ECan, do your work properly or

move on from the next election

and get someone in there with the

guts to turn the sprinklers off and

save our rivers.

Selwyn Waihora Zone

Committee chairman Allen

Lim responds:

The 15-20 per cent figure I

mentioned, referring to the

relative impact of irrigation

compared with other factors,

comes from the scientific

assessment made for the Selwyn

Waihora water plan which

became operative last year.

It represents the average reduction

in Waihora spring-fed

streams (not just Selwyn) caused

by cumulative irrigation takes.

Climate played a big part in

the current situation. There are

examples of other rivers and lakes

that have gone dry or are at record

lows but are not subject to irrigation

takes, such as Lake Lyndon in

Porters Pass.

To deny that the lack of rainfall

for the last three winters has anything

to do with the river going

dry, and Lake Lyndon at record

lows, is like saying CO2 is not a

greenhouse gas and there is no

climate change.

Interestingly enough, at the

time of writing this, the Selwyn

River at Coes Ford is flowing

again at around 150 l/s after the

50-plus millimetres of rain received

in the weekend.

We need to consider all factors

and not close our mind to any. To

this end, in our last meeting, the

Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee

resolved to put the near river augmentation

project for the Selwyn

River up for funding. We want to

have the Selwyn swimmable long

before 2040.

I would like to encourage anyone

with a bit of energy to channel

it and help us manage the water.

We’ll help you get started, so you can get sorted by the June deadline.

There is a lot to figure out – Consents, Farm

Environment Plans, Nutrient Budgets and Audits.

For help, drop in and have a chat with

Environment Canterbury staff about getting

your consent to farm, or call 0800 324 636.

Regular information sessions are held in

Leeston and Darfield.

“ I would thoroughly recommend other

farmers go to these sessions. There’s

nothing like talking to someone. At the

very least, they will tell you what you

have to do. I know now where I can get

help and they can take you through all

the information on the computer.”

Police seek owners of recovered property

• By Tom Doudney

POLICE ARE looking for the

owners of more than 30 items

including cellphones, tools,

silverware and a snowboard,

after coming across an

“Aladdin’s Cave” of stolen

property near Lincoln.

The unexpected haul was

found when

Senior Constable

Jim

Manning

visited a

Tancreds Rd

property last

month with

a warrant to

arrest a Lincoln

woman,

27, for failing

to appear in

court.

The

woman, who

had been

charged with

shop lifting,

did not live

at the address but was known to

frequent it.

On searching the address,

Senior Constable Manning

uncovered several marijuana

plants, equipment for smoking

methamphetamine, three stolen

vehicles, a .22 rifle and amunition

and numerous stolen items,

several of which he realised were

connected with two reported

burglaries.

“It was like an Aladdin’s cave,”

he said.

“It took about 10 police three

hours to search the house and

recover everything we got.”

The woman who police had

been seeking was not found at

the property but police caught

up with her later and she has

since appeared in court.

Senior Constable Manning

said she and two men in their

30s who lived at the property

were facing a variety of charges

related to burglary, theft of the

vehicles and drugs.

OWNERS SOUGHT:

Police believe all

these items, found

at a Tancreds Rd

property, are stolen.

If you think any

are yours, phone

Sergeant Grant

Stewart at the

Rolleston police

station on 363 5246.

Lincoln students in Relay for Life

• By Daniella Judge

INSPIRED BY last year’s

Doing Good campaign run

by the school council, Lincoln

High students have formed a

team of 27 to take part in the

annual Relay for Life fundraiser

at Brookside Park, Rolleston.

The Doing Good campaign

was set up to encourage students

to do all they could for the

good of others and specifically

promote participation in events

that fundraise for charity. It

raised over $40,000 in the first

year.

Team captain and co-organiser

Tessa English said she got

involved after seeing what an

amazing job the Lincoln High

team did last year and deciding

she wanted to continue that

again.

“Not only to support the

Cancer Society but to encourage

students to get involved in great

causes like this too, especially

because they play such a huge

role in our community,” she

said.

Co-organiser Nicole Spriggs

said she was involved because

she wanted to make a

difference.

“Earlier this year I went to

Camp Quality and saw how

cancer effected these children so

greatly, yet they still had a smile

on their faces and this influenced

me,” she said.

Relay for Life is an event

that celebrates survivors and

remembers loved ones that have

been lost to cancer.

Every year thousands of people

around New Zealand come

together in their communities

to raise awareness and financial

support for cancer victims with

all donations going to the Cancer

Society.

The event takes part over

two days and each team has at

least one team member walking

the track over the 18 hours to

symbolise the constant struggles

cancer sufferers face.

The Lincoln High School Team

pledge to have at least three team

members walking the track

during the daylight hours at

least two team members during

the night, and they will put on a

school bake sale to raise money

for the cause.

All members of the public are

welcome to attend the event to

show their support.

It is that time of year when all the councils, including Environment Canterbury,

will be asking the community for feedback on the annual plan for the coming

financial year (2017/18).

You should see information from your local council about how to give feedback on

planned activity close to home - and you are invited by Environment Canterbury to

give feedback on activity proposed across the region outlined in our draft Annual Plan.

We work closely with your local council on many projects but we do cover different

activity so it is important to engage in both processes if you want to have a say.

For the Environment Canterbury plan:

▪ Visit ecan.govt.nz/haveyoursay, view the short summary document and/or the

full draft 2017/18 Annual Plan and use the online form to send your feedback in

▪ Email ecinfo@ecan.govt.nz to arrange a time to talk to Councillors in May

▪ Pick up a hard copy summary and form from your local Environment Canterbury office.

Please note, the closing date for feedback or to request a time to meet with

Environment Canterbury Councillors is 5pm on Friday 21 April.

Bid to change the way we travel

A major planning

document has laid

bare the “significant”

challenges faced in

moving Canterbury

from a car culture to a

more public transportorientated

city. Tom

Doudney reports

UNLESS PUBLIC transport

patronage can be improved,

there will be an extra 80,000 cars

on the city’s roads in 2041 and

40 per cent more congestion.

But getting people to change

their ways is not going to easy, a

report suggests.

The draft future public

transport strategic business case

was presented to the greater

Christchurch public transport

joint committee last week.

It identifies a number of

challenges facing authorities in

developing and increasing patronage

of public transport over

the coming decades.

The Selwyn district has grown

significantly post-earthquake

and the business case showed it

has been poorly served by public

transport, compared to car accessibility.

JAM PACKED: Congestion is expected to worsen unless steps to increase patronage of public

transport can be increased.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

This included poor travel time

and reliability of public transport

compared to private vehicles.

Peak time congestion due to

more people driving themselves

ensured public transport remained

slower than alternatives

and further discouraged people

from using it.

Currently only 2.3 per cent

of trips made in the Selwyn/

Waimakariri/Christchurch

area over a year are on public

transport, while 83 per cent are

in private vehicles, with the rest

walking or cycling.

The Regional Public Transport

Plan (2014) aims to increase that

to three per cent by 2020 and five

per cent by 2030.

However, the strategic

business case concluded

that the challenges facing

public transport in Selwyn/

Waimakariri/Christchurch were

significant.

“If the problems are not

addressed it is unlikely that

public transport targets will be

realised,” it stated.

“Current trends are for

stagnant or declining ridership

and that the status quo will not

be enough to attract people to

choose public transport.”

Significant enhancements

to public transport would

require a large capital

commitment and land use would

have to be managed to support

this. For example, by allowing

higher density development

along public transport corridors.

Environment Canterbury

deputy chairman Steve

Lowndes, a member of the joint

committee, said getting people

in the car-dominated culture to

shift to public transport was a

challenge.

“Cars are cheap, petrol is

relatively cheap and while those

things exist in the market, it

is not going to be easy,” Mr

Lowndes said.

“We have to make public

transport an attractive option.”

Canterbury University

transport expert Simon

Kingham said the area was

unusual compared to others

around the world in that it was

not investing in rail.

Doing so, he said, could

help increase public transport

usage.

“I would hope that ECan and

others would be looking at rail,”

he said.

The next phase of planning

for the join committee will

involve creating a programme

business case focusing on how

these challenges should be

addressed and how costs would

be shared.

Public transport numbers

• By Tom Doudney

THAT CARS and not public

transport have been the

preferred method of getting

around in Canterbury for

decades can be illustrated with

a single statistic.

To find the peak year for public

transport patronage in the

city, you have to go all the way

back to 1945, when 32 million

passenger trips were recorded.

Currently, patronage is less

than half that, at 14 million

trips per year, in spite of the

population having doubled

since then.

Patronage began to fall away

from the 1950s, as private vehicle

use increased. It reached its

lowest levels in 1992 when less

than seven million trips were

recorded.

However, numbers were

recovering steadily in the early

2000s, as measures were introduced

to modernise the bus

network. This period saw the

introduction of the Metrocard,

Orbiter service, real time travel

information and the opening

of the first central city interchange.

By 2010, patronage was at its

highest levels (17 million trips)

since the early 1970s, but things

CHALLENGES: Taking a bus is currently slower and less

reliable than going by car.

would change again the following

year when the February

2011 earthquake struck.

The earthquake altered

travel patterns and affected the

operation of the bus network.

Previously, almost all buses

went through central Christchurch

and the area’s closure

post-earthquake was a big

disruption.

Environment Canterbury’s

redesign of the bus network to

the current ‘hub and spokes’

model, which focused on connecting

services in the suburbs

with less routes coming directly

into the city, was implemented

in December 2014.

However, numbers which

had recovered slightly since

2011 have since continued to

fall again, dropping three per

cent in the 2015/2016 financial

year while patronage for the

country as a whole increased

by the same percentage. In the

2016/2017 financial year to date,

numbers have so far fallen a

further 2.5 per cent.

Cars take out buses

in travel time race

• By Tom Doudney

CATCHING A bus from the

central city to Belfast could

you take you 25 minutes longer

during afternoon peak hour

traffic than if you had gone by

car.

It’s findings like these, from a

city council analysis in November,

which illustrate one of the

key challenges in getting more

people to get on the bus.

The analysis of four key routes

between the central city and

outer suburbs showed car travel

was much faster than bus travel,

while bike travel was faster than

bus travel on three of the routes.

Environment Canterbury data

suggests that frequency is also

a key driver of patronage, with

the five lines that run every 15

minutes typically attracting more

passengers than routes with

longer intervals.

Bus journey times are also

more variable than other modes

of transport. The strategic business

case found public transport

reliability in Canterbury was

“considerably lower” than Wellington

and Auckland where

“approximately 95 per cent of

services run on time.”

In Canterbury, reliability

varied between 12 and 50 per

cent during late afternoon peak

hour traffic for buses heading out

of the city. Things were better

during the morning peak hour

with buses heading into the city

being between 50 and 90 per cent

reliable.

One 22-year-old man had appeared

thought that maybe it was a

he wasn’t very fluent in English.

doing with ‘The Bugmobile’?

The Bugmobile has been

closed for about two years but

that was something I ran for

about 10 years. I took live insects

into schools and pre-schools

throughout Canterbury and told

them about the insects and a variety

of issues relating to insects.

What sort of insects did you

take into schools?

Fashion

I focused the insects they

might see themselves in their

backyards, in the bush on Banks

Peninsula or anywhere here in

the South Island. So often kids

watch the Discovery Channel

or whatever and they see all

these amazing things from

other places in the world and

they don’t really know about

Gardening

the amazing things here their

own backyards.

How did you find kids tended

to react to the insects?

They loved them, it was great.

Part of my mission with the

Bugmobile was to give kids

positive experiences with insects

so one of the things that the

programme led up to was kids

handling live insects. In 10 years

I only had maybe 10 kids who by

the end of the programme still

refused to hold an insect.

You came originally from

Pennsylvania in the United

States. How does the insect life

there compare to here? Is one

place richer than the other?

Yes, I’m afraid Pennsylvania

has a lot more bugs than New

Zealand does. There are interesting

things about each but it’s

hard because I taught about

insects in the US for many years

and there are certainly things

I could do with kids there that

I can’t do here simply because

we just don’t have the volume of

there is cool stuff here too – we

have lovely stick insects and

beautiful praying mantis.

When was it and how was

it that insects became really

interesting to you?

I think when I was born. I’m

one of those kids who just never

grew out of it. I think the first

time I was called ‘the bug lady’

was probably at seven-yearsold

and the neighbours used

to ring me every time they had

centipedes in their bathtub to

come and retrieve them.

What is it you find so

fascinating about insect life?

I think it’s because we know

so little about them. Any

amateur with patience and good

observation skills and record

keeping can discover things

that nobody else has discovered

before. Globally we only know a

fraction of what’s out there.

What brought you over to

New Zealand?

My husband got a job at

Landcare Research in Lincoln.

He is no longer at that job but we

are still here.

As a naturalist at Camp

Tamarack in Canada you got to

care for and teach with an 2.4m

long Burmese python named

Ka. What was that like?

It takes some getting used

to, they are very strong and

muscular animals and I am a

very small person. When you

hold a snake you need to support

their bodies or they feel unsafe.

Because my body is small she

The neighbours actually call

it Funny Farm because there

has been this succession of

strange people who have lived

here. So we work really hard

to live up to the weirdness of

the property and I think we do

okay but there have been some

really strange people here over

the last 150 years.

In what way were these

previous residents strange?

The one that everyone in the

neighbourhood knows about is

these two brothers who used to

live here maybe 60 or 80 years

ago and they both brewed

moonshine. They each tried

to keep the other from drinking

their moonshine so they

hid it all over the property,

under buildings, in the animal

sheds, in every little nook and

cranny. We are still finding

bottles of their moonshine,

although the lids have been

rusted off them all.

When you find one, I guess

you just have to tip it out?

Yeah, but we have a few of

swoop that his father is dead

and he was killed by a dragon

because he was a dragon

slayer. So he is whisked off and

has many adventures and finds

out his father might not actually

be dead, so he and some

of his friends go searching

throughout the South Island to

find out what has happened to

his father. The dragons are of

course fictional but based on

New Zealand fauna. I thought

‘what would dragons be like

if they were in New Zealand?

Well, many of them would be

flightless just like our birds

and many of our insects, so

what features would they have

to live in the various habitats

here?’ So I really thought about

the ecology of the creatures

that really do exist here in New

Zealand and made sure my

dragons fit with that ecology.

Tell me more about this

new education initiative,

Bugs and Books, which

you’re starting up where

you combine science and

literature to engage children.

I was finished with the Bugmobile

but really wanted to get

back into the classroom a little

bit again and for me, I really

love that intersection between

science and art. I think using

facts to inspire creativity is

cool. It adds a dimension to

our study of the natural world

and to art, so I thought ‘I can

put these two together in a

programme’.

It engages the kids who

are keen on bugs and science

because we are looking at

live insects and talking about

the facts behind them but for

insects the facts are often a lot

stranger than fiction. Then we

take these facts and say ‘create

a character based on insects

and make sure your character

has factual characteristics but

also give them some personality’.

We talk about character

building and then the kids

get a chance to write a story

based on their character. So it

also engages the kids who are

artistic and love to write.

UNDER PRESSURE: Weedons batsman Gareth Painter was judged not out in spite of a big

appeal from Sefton players behind the stumps.

THREATING: Sefton’s chief destroyer Ian King bowling to Brad

Nightingale.

Sefton add country title to silverware collection

• By Tom Doudney

SEFTON ARE triple crown

winners after they beat Weedons

in the country cricket two-day

final on Saturday to complete a

perfect season.

The North Canterbury side, a

dominant force for more than

two decades, have a packed

silverware cabinet after adding

the CRV Ambreed Canterbury

Country two-day trophy to their

one-day and T20 titles.

After day one was washed out

last weekend, the game came

down to a first innings shoot-out

at Mainpower Oval.

The day started ominously

for Weedons, with captain Josh

Watson being bowled by the

competition’s star strike bowler

Ian King in the first over.

The Ellesmere side offered

some early resistance before

King returned for his second

spell.

He ripped through the

Weedons side with five more

wickets, reducing the challengers

to 68/9.

Only a useful effort of 28

runs for the last wicket between

Devon Nightingale and

Fraser Austin stalled the

misery.

Fraser Sheat, who bowled

without luck, and Matt Rowe

backed up King with consistent

pressure as Weedons were all

over in 37 overs for 96.

Austin dismissed Sefton

opener Matt Laffey early but

Lance Taylor was in no mood to

be contained.

Sefton recognised King as their

wickets eclipsing Canterbury

stalwart Michael Sharpe’s record

dating back to the 1990/91

season.

The Lincoln High School Senior A

Girls Volleyball team will be attending

the New Zealand Secondary Schools

volleyball tournament in Palmerston

North from the 26th of March to the

1st of April.

The 2017 team is a mixed group of

experienced and young players who are

extremely talented and committed to

their chosen sport. The girls have been

training consistently twice a week since

the start of the school year and have

made some excellent progress in both

their ability and coming together as a

tight team.

The team competes in the Canterbury

Volleyball Monday night competition

and have recently represented Lincoln

High School at both the South Island

and Canterbury championships, in which

they have shown some impressive improvement as well as

achieving some pleasing results.

In Palmerston North Lincoln High School will be competing

with 128 other girls’ teams and will be looking

to continue the schools proud history of

performing well at New Zealand’s largest

secondary schools sporting event. For six of

the girls (Brooklyn Neame, Laura McGregor,

Ruby Lynn, Elizabeth Chambers, Rachel

Pero and Grace Long) this will be their last

opportunity to participate at the national

tournament and is something they have

been building and training for over the past 5

years. For the other three players (Mackenzie

Pringle, Janie Watkins and Bridget Allan), this

will be their first time representing Lincoln

at the tournament and no doubt will be a

chance for them to learn what it takes to

compete with the best, whilst also striving

to send the older girls off on a positive and

winning note.

The players and management are extremely

grateful for the assistance of all sponsors

and supporters who have supported them financially in their

endeavours, without their help, getting to the tournament

would not be possible.

This is the first time for a couple of years that Lincoln is sending a boy’s team to

With the help and guidance of ex-student Pesa Morrison, the boys have been training

consistently twice a week since the start of the school year and have made some

excellent progress in both their ability and coming together as a tight team.

The team competes in the Canterbury Volleyball Monday night competition and have

recently represented Lincoln High School at both the South Island (in which they

finished a pleasing 9th) and Canterbury championships, in which they have shown

some impressive improvement as well as achieving some pleasing results.

In Palmerston North Lincoln High School will be competing with over 180 other teams

and will be looking to continue the schools proud history of performing well

at New Zealand’s largest secondary schools sporting event. For five of the boys

(Jack Lavender, Will Wroe, Regan Kay, Riley Bruhns and Ben Bowen) this will be their

same time.

“But we have some very good

athletes coming through mainly

as a result of the growth of the

Rolleston,” she said.

“This is a great club which

has meant more students than

normal are participating in

HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS: The team of Arking Up, from left, 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 competing for the prize for the round as well as the overall win. ​

Halswell fighting to claim two-day cricket title

THE LAST round of the Metro

cricket two-day season had topof-the-table

Halswell hosting

third placed Sumner at Halswell

Domain.

After being asked to bat first,

Sumner were 60/1 after 15 overs

and looking to put up a good

first innings score.

However, the Halswell bowlers

started to slow the scoring and,

as a result, claimed three more

wickets to have Sumner 64/4

after 20 overs.

Sumner then had a good

partnership to reach 95/4 before

Halswell’s Dayle Eathorne took

some wickets, bowling well to

finish with 4-41. Sumner were

dismissed for 160.

In the chase, Halswell were

24/0 before a collapse left them

at 26/4.

A 45-run partnership between

Leighton Johnston and Jethan

Jeet steadied the innings before

Jeet was dismissed for 20 and

Halswell were in trouble again

SELWYN TIMES

at 70/6. Johnston and Eathorne

had a 30-run partnership, but

after Eathorne was dismissed,

Halswell lost two quick wickets.

Johnston was the last man out

for 46, and Halswell was dismissed

for 118.

Sumner then had 25 minutes

to bat but Halswell took a vital

wicket leaving Sumner 29/1 at

stumps. Halswell will need to

bowl well next week to win this

game and claim the two-day

championship.

Living waters

project planned

The Council recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Living Water, the Department

of Conservation’s ten 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 Living Water vision is for a sustainable dairy industry to be part of healthy functioning

ecosystems that together enrich the lives of all New Zealanders. 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 Council fund a Biodiversity Officer who will be

working to increase the abundance and variety of native wildlife in the Ararira/LII catchment

(pictured above). They will focus on the Yarrs Lagoon/ Ta-rere-kau-tuku area of the catchment and

will be working with the community and other agencies.

Christchurch based DOC Operations Manager, Andy Thompson, says Yarr’s Lagoon/Ta-rere-kautuku

is key site for native wildlife in the Ararira/LII Catchment.

“I’m delighted the Living Water funding will enable Selwyn District Council to focus on protecting

and enhancing Yarr’s Lagoon/Ta-rere-kau-tuku, as this is a significant biodiversity hotspot in the

Ararira/LII Catchment.”

“I’m very happy to see the Council play its part in efforts to support indigenous revegetation and

increasing biodiversity in Canterbury,” says Selwyn Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall.

Biodiversity Officer Andy Spanton joined Selwyn District Council recently and will be working

with the Living Water team on activities and initiatives within the Ararira/LII sub- catchment of Te

Waihora/Lake Ellesmere that support Living Water’s goals.

Other aspects of Andy’s Biodiversity Officer role for the Council are to carry out activities to

support native biodiversity, including the management of the Council’s Natural Environment Fund

which assists native planting and biodiversity management on private land, and coordinating the

identification and ecological assessment of significant native vegetation sites in the district.

Easter Storytimes for kids!

Selwyn District Libraries invite you to join them for special evening

Storytime sessions. They will be celebrating Easter with stories,

songs and fun! The sessions are aimed at 2-7 year olds but everyone

including family and friends are welcome. Kids can also dress in their

pyjamas if they want to. The sessions will take place at:

· Darfield on Wednesday 5 April, 6-7pm

· Lincoln on Thursday 6 April, 6-7pm

· Rolleston on Monday 10 April, 6-7pm

· Leeston on Wednesday 12 April, 6-7pm.

Bookings are essential - please book at www.selwynlibraries.co.nz

Temporary library closure

On Wednesday 29 March, Selwyn District Libraries and service centres will be closed to allow library

staff to attend professional development training.

While the closure occurs, people can still visit the library website (www.selwynlibraries.co.nz) to access

a range of online services including the library catalogue, eBooks, eMagazines, databases and other

online services. Items can also be returned through the after-hours returns boxes outside libraries. The

Council’s Rolleston Headquarters will still be open to provide Council services. You can also phone 347

2800 or 318 8338 for assistance.

Library staff will be attending workshops on increasing customer access to collections, the delivery of

outreach programme and sessions on library spaces.

Roading reconstruction helps

create smoother journeys

Roading reconstruction work is helping to improve our roading

network.

Extra funding for road reconstruction work was introduced in

2014 from a roading targeted rate to help meet the rising costs of

roading repair and renewal work. Vehicle traffic on Selwyn roads

has been increasing more quickly than our population, while more

heavy vehicles, including dairy tankers, construction vehicles and

trucks travelling to and from Izone, are also using local roads. The

funding has been used to accelerate road reconstruction work on

sections of road where the road has suffered significant damage

and the road base needs to be reconstructed, the surface levelled

and resealed. On these sections of road, pothole and digout repairs

cannot adequately repair road damage.

Since July 2014, 11.6km of road reconstruction work has been

completed on sections of these roads:

· Deans Road

· Gerald Street

· Leeston and Lake Road

· Rockwood Road

· Goulds Road

· Springs Road

Bus stop areas marked

· Leeston Dunsandel Road

· Old Tai Tapu Road

· Selwyn Lake Road

· Southbridge Leeston Road

· Telegraph Road

· Marshs Road.

Road reconstruction is also now starting on 0.5km of Bealey Road,

west of Waianiwaniwa River bridge.

Telegraph Road near Darfield (pictured) is an example of how road

rehabilitation work is providing a smoother ride for vehicles and helping

reduce ongoing maintenance costs. In the period from July 2013 to

March 2015, 109 potholes were recorded on Telegraph Road between

Darfield township and Bealey Road. The road is a busy rural road and

is also used by many trucks. Road rehabilitation work was undertaken

on this section of road in stages with the work completed in early

2015. From April 2016 until March 2017, after road rehabilitation was

completed, only 7 potholes were recorded on this section of road, a

major reduction from the number recorded previously.

This month, Council will be marking bus stop boxes on all its urban

bus stops. This will make it easier for bus drivers when dropping off

or picking up passengers. As our townships grow, it becomes more

important for bus stops to be marked with boxes to ensure there is

enough space for bus drivers to stop.

On the roads this week

Road repairs are planned on Leaches, Bealey and Minchins Road,

with traffic controls operating. Road resurfacing is planned on

Telegraph and McLaughlins Roads, with stop/go traffic controls

operating. Footpath construction will occur on State Highway 75

and School Road in Tai Tapu.

Work is continuing on the Masefield Drive upgrade and footpath

construction. Manse Road roading and stormwater improvement

work continues. Temporary traffic management is in place at these

sites. Road reconstruction is complete on Gerald Street.

Road/Rail closures

Curraghs Road Rail crossing will be closed from Saturday 1

to Wednesday 5 April to allow KiwiRail to complete a crossing

upgrade. The road will be closed between Main South Road (SH1)

and Jones Road with detours in place.

Stoneleigh Drive is closed until mid-April. A new roundabout is

being installed at the intersection of Hoskyns Road and Stoneleigh

Drive. The closure is a safety measure to reduce traffic build up on

Hoskyns Road. Hoskyns Road will remain open with traffic controls

operating. Dynes Road is expected to reopen mid-week following a

closure to allow a sewer main to be installed.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension

On Weedons Road there is currently no access to Main South Road

from Levi Road with a one way system in place.

133 rd Hororata Racing Club

Riccarton Park Raceway Sat 25th March - First Race 12noon

SELWYN TIMES

Race meeting to mark club’s

133rd anniversary

This Saturday, March 25, Selwyn

will celebrate its thoroughbred

racing heritage at the Riccarton Park

Racecourse with a race meeting

marking the 133rd year of racing

for the Hororata Racing Club, now

Canterbury Racing-Hororata.

There will be nine races on the

card, with a combined stake total

of $265,000. The day’s feature

event is the $80,000 Valachi Downs

Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes

sponsored by Kevin Hickman,

who has a close affinity with the

Hororata area.

This race has been upgraded to a

Group 3 event, making it the most

important race in the history of

Horarata racing and one of the most

prestigious races in the country.

In additon to the high standard

of racing, there will be plenty for

families to enjoy, including picnic

spots and a bouncy castle. Popular

songstress Nyree Huyser will be

back to entertain the crowds,

performing in the birdcage between

races.

Racing starts around 12 noon,

with the last race running just

before 5pm.

The club’s history

The Hororata Racing Club was

one of the earliest provincial clubs

to be formed, with its first meeting

held at Hororata on January 6, 1885.

Run under the Canterbury Jockey

Club (C.J.C.) rules, it was an eightrace

programme for stakes of 135

sovereigns. The inaugural Hororata

Cup, with a purse of 40 sovereigns,

was won by Grand Duke owned by

Mr T. Quill.

After the first meeting at Hororata

a return excursion train from

Christchurch was put on, travelling

to Coalgate with both horses and

patrons, who then walked the few

miles to and from the course.

A ‘Ladies Bracelet’ race was run

at the first meeting, and this was

revived at the centennial meeting

in 1984. Since that year, Petersens

Jewellers of Bush Inn Centre have

donated a gold bracelet for the race,

which is usually for two or three

year-olds. This year’s bracelet, the

34th, is attached to the race for two

year-olds.

After the first 80 years, the course

needed extensive improvements

and this, plus encouragement

from the NZ Racing Conference

for centralisation resulted in

the club renting the Riccarton

Racecourse for future meetings.

The first meeting was held there

in 1965.

For the next 21 years Hororata

retained its own secretary and

independence, paying a rental fee

to the C.J.C. for each meeting. By

this time there were two meetings

each year and on one occasion

three, one of which struck a very

wet day resulting in a serious

financial effect.

When the secretary retired in

1986, following discussion with

the C.J.C. chairman and committee

it was decided the Hororata Club

would operate from the Riccarton

headquarters with the C.J.C. as

secretariat.

By 2003, when the Canterbury

Racing amalgamation between

the C.J.C. and Amberley, North

Canterbury and Hororata racing

clubs and the Riccarton Turf Club

took place, Hororata was a wellestablished

segment of racing at

Riccarton Park.

Sponsor of the Valachi Downs Thoroughbreed Breeders

Stakes, Kevin Hickman, addresses the crowds with 2012

race winner, Papilio, being paraded behind him.

Nyree Huyser will be entertaining between

races on Saturday.

SOUTH ISLAND

AGRICULTURAL FIELD DAYS

Chairman’s welcome

On behalf of the organising committee, it is

a pleasure for me to welcome you to the 66th

year of the South Island Agricultural Field

Days (SIAFD), our second year at Kirwee.

During the 2017 field days you can expect

to enjoy our ever-growing demonstration

displays including silage and beet harvesting,

as well as our usual demonstrations and a new

initiative, lifestyle exhibits the whole family

can enjoy.

We are thankful to the many SIAFD supporters

and community. While too many to mention

individually, we would like to pass on our

thanks to our neighbour Tony Redmond who

has been a massive help to us.

Without the Voluntary Committee of the

SIAFD none of this would be possible and it

is with heartfelt thanks to them that we can

continue to produce the SIAFD.

Scene set for a great show

The 2017 South Island Agricultural Field Days

(SIAFD) will take place March 29-31, and for

the second time at the new site near Kirwee.

The largest agricultural event in the South

Island, it is held on alternate years between

Otago and Canterbury, and with more than 600

exhibitors taking part this year it promises to

have something for everyone.

The volunteers, who plan and run the event, are

proud of its status as New Zealand’s premier

demonstration Field Days and this year will be

no different, chairman

of the SIAFD organising committee Rodney

Hadfield says.

“While the SIAFD have grown, evolved and moved

with the time, we have stayed true to the aims we

began with, in 1951 – to promote ingenuity and

innovation and to provide farmers with an opportunity

to view comparative demonstrations so

they can make informed choices before purchasing

machinery and equipment,” Mr Hadfield says.

SIAFD media spokesperson Daniel Schat says the

volunteers and community groups that run the

field days are well-prepared and the scene is set for

a great show.

“Machinery demonstrations

are a big part of South Island

Field Days, and because we

are just 20 minutes from

Christchurch airport, we

offer farmers and contractors

throughout New Zealand an

inexpensive way to check out

and compare the latest gear,”

Mr Schat says.

“This year we have good

crops of maize, fodder beat,

pasture and oats ready for the

harvest machinery. Cultivation

and seeding machinery

will also be in action.

“Field Days are a time when

and distributors release new products

and there are always some great deals to

be had, so it should be of real interest to

anyone who is serious about agricultural

machinery.”

SIAFD organising committee member

Tony Redmond leases the SIAFD site

when the Field Days are not on, and Mr

Schat says he has done an excellent job

making sure the crops are ready and wellwatered.

Irrigation is applied with a pivot

irrigator tdonatned by local

company Think Water

Leeson.

A new section for 2017 is

the lifestyle section with

exhibits the whole family

can enjoy.

“The lifestyle section adds

something new to the Field

Days,” Mr Schat says.

“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 special events at

SIAFD include Farm

Trader magazine’s Top

Tractor Shootout 2017. This

will compare variable transmission tractors

made by the world’s leading brands,

with judges testing the tractors on a range

of criteria including performance and

affordability.

Two fencing competitions will also be

held during the Field Days, while another

popular event is the Agri-Innovation

awards. These recognise New Zealandmade

innovations or inventions, which

can include implements, attachments or

tools used in agriculture or other types of

primary production, with entrants demonstrating

their inventions.

SIAFD is a non-profit organisation made

up of farmers and others in the agricultural

industry.

Mr Hadfield says the Field Days would

not be possible without the work of

volunteers and community groups and

Friends of the Field Days, who donate

equipment

and services.

He says the event is a good community

fundraising opportunity for local schools

and Young Farmers, who help with parking,

running the tills and the entrance,

and clean-up.

More than 27,500 people attended SIAFD

2015 and organisers expect as many,

or more this year. Among them will

be Prime Minister Bill English, who is

scheduled to visit on the second day of

the event.

The famous and very popular Malvern

A & P Show is on again this Saturday and as

always will offer a true country agricultural

and farming experience.

This year’s show features sheep, wool,

poultry and pigeons, horses and show

jumping as well as the President’s favourite,

the Cattle section in which the show’s

convenor has over ninety entries.

There will be something special in the

Produce Shed where Margaret Johnston’s

knitted cast of Downton Abbey as seventeen

individual mice creations, ‘Mouseton Abbey’

will be on display, along with garden and

home produce, cookery, flowers, needlework

and handcrafts.

Check out the art and photography in the

back shed where you will find the creations

of some exceptional budding artists from

seven local schools.

Performing on stage will be some

brilliantly talented local artists and groups

such as Emma Sparey, Ashy Batchelor, Holly

Kimber, Minaia Davis and the Ellesmere

Pipe Band with the wonderful D J Singh as

compere. Sheffield Primary School’s Kapa

Haka Group will also debut this year, with a

performance at 11.45am.

The children are sure to be entertained in

the fun zone truck entertainment area too

and in finding Scavenger Hunt items listed

on an attachment to a flyer handed out at

the entry gate. This will have the children

hunting all over the grounds in the hope of

completing their entry to earn a prize.

Always a winner is one of the last events of

the day, the Speed Shearers who will kick off

with a relay against the Woodchoppers.

With so much to see, be sure to head to

the 2017 Malvern A & P Show this Saturday,

As the weather

cools, we start to

think about how to

keep our homes

warm over winter.

One option is double glazing, which

effectively traps heat indoors with

little heat escaping through the glass,

making it more effective than just having

thermal curtains. A gap between the two

layers of glass limits heat transference

while minimising condensation and

cutting down outside noises heard in the

Ultimate Design and Renovation

specialises in double glazing, with

replacement of windows and doors in

older homes a key part of their business.

Whether it is old timber, aluminium or

steel windows, they can update a home

with new double glazed aluminium

windows and doors so it is warmer, drier

and quieter.

They have recently developed a new

streamlined range of sliding doors. These

are sturdy and strong due to thicker metal

being used while also allowing a wider

double glazed unit. Ultimate Design and

Renovation use the widest double glazing

available, that can be put into a residential

window/door frame, increasing the

potential for warmth in the home.

If you are running out of space in your

home or want a sheltered and sunny spot,

why not add on a conservatory. This is an

easy way to add extra square meterage

and costs 30-40% less than building an

extension.

Ultimate Design and Renovation

produce and install conservatories

and windbreaks. They have three

teams of highly trained and competent

professionals (many of whom have been

with the company a long time), carrying

out quality installations. This makes it

easier for them to work to a customer’s

timeframe and as they own their own

extrusion, are price competitive while

offering timely delivery times. For

example, windbreaks can generally be

delivered and installed in three to six

weeks.

“We have one installation team

dedicated to fitting conservatories,”

explains Kelly Tyson who with husband

Mike, owns and personally operates

Ultimate Design and Renovation.

Kelly will often be seen out on site,

checking renovations and visiting clients.

Their motto is: ‘Treat the customer’s

home as your own’; being respectful of a

person’s home, working in a tidy manner,

picking up rubbish and not leaving glass

around especially if children live in the

home.

For the month of March, Ultimate

Design and Renovation and Mainland

Glass, have joined up to offer a limited

number of half price double glazing

packages. If you are looking to replace

your windows and doors or planning a

new build, be in quick as there may still

Cooking outdoors

Barbecuing and eating outdoors is

particularly enjoyable whether a pizza

cooked on a wood fired oven, ham falling

off the bone of a rotisserie or black

charcoaled sausages straight off a charcoal

barbecue.

Outdoor cooking has progressed from

the homemade or small round charcoal

barbecues once common in New Zealand.

While still great with the true charcoal

flavour they add to steak and sausages,

there are bigger, shinier and some might

say better alternatives now available.

Gas fired barbecues have become very

affordable and fantastic when cooking

up a feed for the regular troops or a large

crowd. Those with a hot plate, side burner

and rotisserie, cover all the bases, taking

the mess out of the kitchen and into the

yard where a few fat splatters are less of a

concern.

Gas pizza ovens can also be purchased

as free standing models or for fitting into

a hand crafted fireplace. Complete gas

ovens range in price from as little as $200

up to the $10,000 mark. Powder coated

and stainless steel options are available,

some with ceramic stones for producing

a crisp based pizza. Many are like a gas

barbecue in that they can be wheeled to a

position so can be stored under shelter in

inclement weather.

Building pizza ovens in the backyard

has grown in popularity. These give a true

wood fired pizza taste and do a pretty

tasty roast, which takes around an hour

and a half while the fire burns at the back

of the oven. Initially, the fire is built in

the centre of the oven to heat the walls,

floor and roof, then pushed to the back

before placing the food in the centre. For

roasting, the fire needs turning from time

to time to maintain the heat while the

roasting pan should also be rotated.

Wood fired pizza oven kits, to fit into

a structure that is bricked or plastered

around, or complete portable ovens can be

purchased with some fire safe at any time

of the year – something that those living

in Canterbury need to be mindful of.

Another trend is towards fire pits that

are finding their way into backyards.

These are available readymade, some

coming with a safety mesh cover so safe

to use when there are fire restrictions.

They generally burn charcoal or gas and

some may be incorporated into a table as

a centrepiece offering the potential for the

Japanese Hibachi style of barbecuing (not

to be confused with Teppanyaki, which is

cooked on a flat solid griddle surface).

Fire pits are great for throwing out heat

and a good form of cooking as the fire dies

down. Try throwing some potatoes into

the embers (wrap them in foil if you want

to eat the skins). When cooked, scoop

out the warm potato with a spoon, to eat

around the fire for a different snack.

Gas barbecues with a hot plate,

side burner and rotisserie cover all

the bases.

Push the fire to the back before placing

the food in the centre.

Building pizza ovens in the backyard

is now popular.

Gas fires are also popular features

in backyards.

Outdoor cooking has progressed from

Trends in

garage doors

More awareness on home heating has

led many people to choose an insulated

garage door. These make a difference in

keeping a home warm and are great when

the garage is used as a work area or gym.

Local company, Custom Made Garage

Doors have noted an increase in demand

for new insulated garage doors and for

insulating existing garage doors.

“Most sectional doors can be insulated

with the Phoenix and Idaho leaders in

flat panel doors nationwide,” advises Mal

Hurrell, founder of Custom Made Garage

Doors who produce a wide range of

garage doors.

Popular styles in the company’s lineup

have been the attractive Phoenix

Flat Panel, Idaho Negative Detail

and Smartline garage doors. All are

constructed from powder coated steel

with a durable polypropylene finish and

come fully insulated. These doors are high

quality and made strong so will last the

distance.

The new Smartline door is available

in over thirty colours making it easy to

match the garage door to the exterior

revere, roof or trim of the house, with

it available in the fashionable colours of

Grey Friars, Matt Black and Iron Sand.

For a more basic garage door, the

Custom Ribline sectional door has a

strong following with entry level buyers

building their first home. Produced from

colour steel with a woodgrain or smooth

texture finish, it can be insulated.

Timber garage doors have also been

in heavy demand. Custom Made Garage

Doors produce Cedar doors in a range of

finishes. These are stylish while adding

warmth and a welcoming feel to the home,

which is not only cosmetic given that they

can be insulated.

There is also the option of having a

made-to-order plywood door with heaps

of potential for matching the garage door

to the features of a character home, while

for a really modern look Flush Mount

Doors are superb. These fit seamlessly

with their connecting wall making them

hardly noticeable.

All garage doors made by Custom

Made are fitted with the new high quality

Merlin Commander MyQ Automatic

Opener, which can be operated from

your iPhone. They also supply automatic

gate openers to accompany the gates they

make. These include sliding gates through

to gas bottle and pedestrian gates, which

can be made to match a garage door.

Mal and his team recommend servicing

your garage door every two years so it

will perform at its best and last longer.

They provide a repairs and maintenance

service, something that is their forte,

along with the production of a wide

selection of garage doors. Check their full

range at: www.custommade.co.nz and for

advice on maintaining your garage door.

As leading manufacturers of garage

doors, you will want to give Custom

Made Garage Doors a call if wanting

a new garage door, or your existing

door insulated, repaired or serviced:

on 03 347 8333, or 0800 661 366 or by

Lift the look of

your garden

Life situations change. We may

purchase a home, have a family, watch our

children grow and see them leave the nest.

With these changes our home and garden

may also change.

When life is busy we may need an easy

care property or help with the garden to

limit stress and allow more time to enjoy

life. Children-friendly grounds may also

be needed with space for play equipment.

Ross Legg and his team at Revive

Landscaping recognise the pressures

of modern day living and how our

needs change. They can assist with

regular monthly or occasional garden

maintenance, garden makeovers, new

landscaping projects and dressing your

garden for a property sale.

“We do a lot of reconstruction work,

retaining the skeleton while enhancing

with new plantings and trimming

existing trees and shrubs,” explains

Ross. “Revamping a garden can be more

rewarding than forming a new structure

as there is plenty to work with and you

can see the transformation.”

Their expertise and experience in

landscaping, which in Ross’ case totes

up to over eighteen years, means they

can interpret landscape plans while

incorporating your wishes for your

outdoor space. They will not rip out the

whole garden. Instead, they selectively

shape and retain trees and shrubs while

removing unwanted and unattractive

plants so your garden achieves its full

potential and no plant dominates.

“We were so impressed with Revive

Landscaping’s first visit that we’ve had

them back numerous times. We’re

fussy when it comes to our garden yet

once again they’ve not disappointed.

The lads work hard and know what

they’re doing when it comes to pruning

and shaping, leaving our property clean,

tidy and looking beautiful,” says Jason, a

happy customer.

“What I love most is that they complete

work in just three hours that would take

us more than a day to do, and take away

the waste.”

Where a garden is overgrown, Revive

Landscaping start with an initial cleanup

before cultivating garden beds, laying

composts and mulches to stimulate the

soil and give plants the best chance of

flourishing. With a solid knowledge

of plants, they will ensure that each

has sufficient space to grow and that

groupings are not too tight.

If you want to upgrade your outdoor

area without starting from scratch, Revive

Landscaping can help. They will work

with you and any landscape designer,

introducing new features by constructing

decks, pergolas, water features, irrigation

systems, lighting and artistic elements so

your garden meets your needs and is an

extension of your home.

Ross would rather retain an old tree

that has taken years to grow, pruning to

enhance its branch structure and even

adding up-lighting.

Landscaping go to: www.

Autumn is garden

makeover time

Garden renovations are

seasonal with now a good time

for this kind of work, to avoid

it being carried out in the mud

and wet of winter.

Autumn is a good time for working in

the garden whether starting from scratch

or changing one that is established.

If planning to shift trees or shrubs to

a new spot, start wrenching these for

moving. This involves digging around and

gradually cutting the roots so the plant

will develop feeder roots that will help it

re-establish and minimise the shock for

the plant when moved in June or July.

How easily plants can be moved

depends on their size and species. Some

curl up their toes if shifted so seeking the

assistance of a landscape professional can

be helpful when changing or laying out a

garden.

With different tree and shrub species

reaching varying widths and height,

selecting the right place for each plant

ensures maximum effect is gained and

that mature species are not lost.

“Having that touch of maturity in your

garden gives it the ‘wow’ factor,” advises

landscape designer, Sharon Crofts who

operates Sharon Crofts Landscaping.

“Larger and taller vegetation add to the

aesthetics of a landscape design. When

coupled with new construction work,

the revamped garden has a finished and

established look which is very satisfying.”

Sharon is a professional who has over

25 years’ experience in horticulture and

landscaping. She can advise people who

have established gardens that are in need

of a garden makeover, giving them a new

lease of life. She will suggest landscape

ideas, suitable plants for various positions,

draw up a new landscape plan for an

existing or a new garden, and advise

where suitable plant stock can be sourced.

Sharon also works with landscape

contractors who may complete part or all

of the labour and construction work for

you.

Garden renovations are seasonal with

now a good time for this kind of work,

to avoid it being carried out in the mud

and wet of winter. With the consistent

building activity in Selwyn, landscaping

contractors are busy so it is a good idea

to think ahead. This will allow time for

your landscape plan to be drawn up and

finalised so the contractors can be on site

when needed.

Sharon also says that with more

moisture in the air due to cooler autumn

evenings and dewy mornings, conditions

are conducive to growing grass so it is a

good time to feed the lawn and seed a new

lawn.

With the hotter months now over, there

is less stress on plants and with nurseries

having sales it is a good time for planting

so plants have time to get established

before spring when our garden looks its

best as plants put on a show, making it a

wonderful time to get outside and enjoy

the emerging warmer weather.

Sharon can be contacted on 329 6229

or 0274 311 558 or by email: s-crofts@

xtra.co.nz and you can check out her

website at: www.sharoncrofts.co.nz. She

Dairy company wins

innovation award in Dubai

3

Fonterra has picked up a top innovation

award at the Gulfood Innovation Awards

for its trade stand at the world’s largest food

show in Dubai earlier this month.

The Gulfood Innovation Awards

acknowledge new and improved

innovations and technologies being

adopted by the 5000 international food,

beverage and hospitality exhibitors at

the event. Fonterra’s stand was shared

by NZMP, Fonterra’s dairy ingredients

business and Anchor Food Professionals,

Fonterra’s foodservice brand.

Fonterra general manager Middle East

for NZMP, Santiago Aon said: “We have

developed some inventive ways of bringing

the Fonterra experience alive for visitors

to the stand, such as our Fonterra virtual

reality experience.

“By slipping on a headset, delegates

can immerse themselves in a 360° virtual

Fonterra world, following the journey of

New Zealand dairy from its origin on the

farm through to the shipping of NZMP

ingredients to overseas markets.”

NZMP has developed the virtual reality

film to offer its customers a unique way

to experience the production of dairy

ingredients without actually being there.

Mr Aon said that NZMP has been quick

to use the cutting-edge technology, which

is only just entering the mainstream as a

communications tool, to bring the Fonterra

dairy story to life.

“We are always keen to use new

technology to expand the way we connect

with our customers and enable them to

see for themselves how NZMP transforms

farmers’ milk into world-class dairy

products for customers around the globe.

“The NZMP virtual reality experience

offers customers deeper insights into the

origins of the products they buy from us

and helps to bring our customers closer to

our farmers.”

This inventive approach is also reflected

in NZMP’s Virtual Store where customers

can create a virtual product to meet

their specifications by selecting certain

ingredients, packaging styles and label

images.

Anchor Food Professionals also made

its debut at Gulfood 2017 where the

foodservice brand showcased its latest

product innovations

to delegates,

highlighting the

creativity and

expertise of its team.

Fonterra general

manager, GCC

for Anchor Food

Professionals,

Alastair Bruce said:

“To meet evolving

customer needs

and preferences,

the Anchor Food

Professionals team

works closely with

our customers and

partners to develop

new innovative

dairy products and

business solutions

– key to helping

the Middle East

foodservice industry

meet growing

demand for highquality

dairy and

capture growth in

the business of food.”

Mr Aon said

Fonterra was

delighted to receive the Gulfood award

for its new stand, noting that it was a great

accomplishment to win a top award the first

time that Fonterra has had a standalone

presence at the event, after 40 years’

partnering with Middle East and African

food and beverage manufacturers.

“Gulfood offers us a springboard for

increasing trade opportunities in the region

by showcasing Fonterra’s ‘New Zealand

advantage’ – our market-leading, grass-fed

dairy expertise and commitment to food

safety and quality.”

New Zealand’s Minister for Primary

Industries Nathan Guy attended Gulfood

2017, along with a number of other

New Zealand companies, signalling the

importance of the region to New Zealand.

Some 5000 exhibitors from 120 countries

showcased their products at the show, with

up to 90,000 food professionals from 150

countries attending over five days.

ensure you keep young

plants protected from

slugs and snails.

If you are not planting

in your vege garden, don’t

leave the beds empty. Sow

a “green manure or cover

crop” to add nutrients

into the soil and protect

beds.

Sow green crops directly.

Once grown, dig them

back into the soil and

leave to break down for

six to eight weeks before

planting. Alternatively,

“blanket cover” beds by

applying a thick layer of

mulch, autumn leaves, or

wood chip.

Summer herb gardens

are coming to an end as

many perennial herbs

start flowering and then

produce seed in autumn.

This does not mean you

cannot have a winter herb

garden, however, you

may need to plant fresh

specimens at this time of

year. Cut back herbs like

mint, sage, rosemary and

thyme to promote new

fresh growth.

Keep planting bulbs.

There are many different

varieties available to give

variations in height and

colour in the garden or

containers. Always label

where the bulbs are in the

garden so they are not

damaged or accidently

dug up when dormant

over winter.

When autumn rains

arrive, the renovation

of existing lawns or the

laying of new lawns can

begin. When preparing

your site for a new lawn,

it is advisable to have a

slight slope to allow water

to run off, thereby avoiding

puddling.

A handy tip is to sow

a mixture of grass seed

as this provides a better

all-year-round lawn. With

existing lawns, fertiliser

can be applied and

watered in well. When irrigating

your lawn, carry

out this in the cooler part

of the day to maximise

water usage.

Prune peach and

nectarine trees that

have finished cropping.

Remove old wood

and retain enough new

seasons growth for next

season’s fruit. It’s always

a good idea to maintain

tree height at 2m to 3m to

allow for easier picking,

and for netting if birds

become a problem next

season.

If you are planning

on adding trees to your

garden this year, planting

during autumn/early

winter is ideal so your

tree has enough time to

establish a good root system

before summer.

Beautiful blooms from gerberas

Rachel Vogan says bright-faced gerberas offer

more than ever before, with new breeds no longer

restricted to indoor living only

YEARS AGO, gerberas were

predominantly grown inside as

they were deemed to be a little

temperamental and challenging to

grow outdoors.

Years of breeding has seen the

development of new types that have

been bred specifically to counter this

flaw and flourish especially well in

pots. Yahoo, I say. It now means you

can easily grow your own cut flowers

at home.

Gerberas are often a first choice in

bouquets and a popular choice for

brides on the Big Day. The flowers

come in a rainbow of colours with

true blue and ebony black seeming

to be the only omissions at the

moment, although that could easily

change with all the breeding being

undertaken.

In the shops you will find two main

brands of outdoor patio gerberas –

Garvinea and Sweet series. Garvinea

were bred to flower over a longer

period and are about half the size of

the large florist’s gerberas.

The colour range is amazing and

flowers themselves very eye-catching

as they produce so many flower stems

per plant. With a compact growth

habit they are definite patio and tub

option, especially if you want to

create a wow factor. These flowers

pick well, too, although it always

seems sad not to leave them outside

strutting their stuff, especially if they

are planted in your outdoor living

areas.

They are true perennials, meaning

they don’t die after one season.

Hailing from South Africa, they

prefer a free-draining soil rather than

anything too wet or heavy. Protect

from harder frosts, as anything below

-5 deg C is too cold for them. If they

are planted in tubs, move the tubs

closer to the house or even indoors

over winter.

New this season are those in the

Sweet series, which have all the same

attributes as Garvineas, but offer

much larger blooms.

One I am going to hunt down is

‘Sweet Surprise’ with its layers of pale

lavender petals.

This colour appeals to those who

enjoy tones of blue and violet in the

garden or on the patio.

Another newcomer is ‘Sweet

Memories’, which boasts an array of

pretty pastel-pink outer petals that

contrast beautifully with the creamywhite

centres.

This one is sure to quickly become

a favourite with flower lovers.

VIVID: Sweet Memories (above). This is

one you can grow in the garden or pots

and tubs. (Right Gerbera ‘Kermit’ is a new

florist-only variety, ask or order it by name.

It’s a real character; Gerberas can last for

a good 10 days to a fortnight when used in

floral arrangements.

Now is a great time to add compost in to your garden.

This will help to replenish the nutrients in your soil and

give an overall boost. Even if you’re not planting over

autumn and winter, mix some of our Blood and Bone,

Sheep Pellets and Organic Compost in your vegetable

garden. This will help to rejuvenate your soil ready for

your next lot of planting. If you are planting winter

crops, make sure you keep the nutrition supply up so

they have plenty nutrients to draw from to make the

crop through the season. Intelligro stocks a wide variety

of fertilisers to cater to your plant’s requirements.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

SELWYN TIMES

Mazda MX-5 offers

thrilling drive

• By Ross Kiddie

WHEN MAZDA first

produced its MX-5

convertible, the concept

was loosely based around

the high performance

Lotus Elan of the 60s.

There’s no denying the

success Mazda has had

with the MX-5, every

generation has been true

to the original, and I don’t

know anyone who isn’t

smitten with the affordable

sports car.

That being the case, I was

a little surprised to find

that the latest generation

model was designed in

collaboration with the

Fiat/Chrysler group. We

are unlikely to see the Fiat

equivalent here in New

Zealand, it’s rumoured

to be a left-hand-drive

model only; but we will

see Abarth versions here

in right-hand-drive, and

it will arrive with a 1.4-

litre turbocharged engine.

Incidentally, Abarth is the

performance arm of Fiat

in Italy.

I’m not here to praise

the Abarth, I doubt that

I’ll ever get a drive of

that vehicle, but what I

do know is that Mazda is

determined not to lose grip

on the popularity of MX-5,

nor its market share, and

have launched it here in

four variations to cater for

all driving tastes. In simple

terms, there is a 1.5-litre

manual model, a 2-litre

manual or automatic, and a

2-litre convertible hardtop.

I’ve driven all but the

hardtop, and have come

to appreciate what Mazda

have done with the MX-5,

it is still the fun, beautifully

balanced sports car

which has a chassis and

suspension that can only be

described as delightful.

This evaluation focuses

on the 2-litre manual,

and it sits in the market

at $46,995. $40,995 will

get you into the 1.5-

litre manual, automatic

transmission on the 2-litre

adds $1500.

Effectively, the engine is

the same, but for bore and

stroke differences which

determine cubic capacity.

The 2-litre model pumps

out 118kW and 200Nm

against 96kW and 150Nm,

and if you add in its weight

of just over 1000kg the

power-to-weight balance

is definitely biased towards

performance.

When you fire up the

Mazda MX-5 you know

you are in for a thrilling

ride; the engine is raspy

MAZDA MX-5: Designed with the Fiat/Chrysler group.

and a little raw, not so

that it’s overbearing, but

it does have sound which

lets you know that there is

something just a little bit

different about the car. It

has always been that way,

it’s just part of the ethos

that harks back to my

introduction, the Lotus

Elan was also vibrant from

under the bonnet.

• Price – Mazda MX-5

Ltd, $46,995

• Dimensions – Length,

3915mm; width,

1735mm; height,

1230mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

rear-wheeldrive,1998cc,

118kW,

200Nm, six-speed

manual.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.6sec

• Fuel usage –

6.9l/100km

Where Mazda has

excelled with the MX-5 is

in its driving dynamics,

you feel so very much a

part of the car, everything

from the short-shifting

gear lever through to the

feel from the suspension

and the way you as a driver

are connected to the rearwheel-drive

feel, the MX-5

involves the driver and

drags him/her tightly to the

elements which make it the

sports machine it is.

In terms of performance,

the MX-5 in 2-litre form

will haul to 100km/h from

a standstill in 6.6sec, and

will make an overtaking

manoeuvre in 4.9sec (80-

120km/h). And at the

same time it will also sip

fuel frugally, Mazda claim

a 6.9l/100km (41mpg)

combined cycle average.

The twin-camshaft, fourcylinder

unit is one from

the new range of SkyActive

engines which have found

their way into most of

Mazda’s current product, it

has character and likes to

be heard; at highway speed

it settles down, but if you

use the power on tap it

is there to entertain

audibly.

The MX-5 is all about

character, and it has a

chassis that delivers one

of the finest handling

sensations you are ever

likely to experience. The

steering is pin-sharp, and

by sitting almost over

the rear axles you get a

lot of feel as to what the

suspension is doing in

relation to the road surface.

Short-wheelbase, rearwheel-drive

cars can be

twitchy at the rear under

power, and the MX-5 is no

exception, but grip through

the 205/45 x 17in sport

specification Bridgestone

Potenza rubber is high and

you really have to work

hard to lose traction. Of

course, that is immediately

arrested through the

traction control electronics,

but the point is the MX-5

can be playful and, as a

buyer, you wouldn’t want

anything less.

I took the test car inland

from Windwhistle almost

all of the way to Lake

Coleridge Village, my

favourite high country

road, and thoroughly

enjoyed the way the MX-5

attacked the corners yet

drives in a fashion which

allows the driver to use its

qualities to full potential.

The driving environment

is one of massive appeal,

everything about the MX-5

is beautifully engineered,

from the cockpit to

lowering the roof down

with one hand in one

easy movement, there is

nothing to criticise, and

the newcomer is true to

the concept which has

made it so successful and

appealing.

Of course, it is a selfish

car, any buyer will only be

able to have one passenger

at a time as it has two seats

only, and that in itself

suggests that everything

about the MX-5 is a little

different.

Farm life has

plenty to offer

young people

From city girl to sharemilker to equity

farmer, North Canterbury’s Wendy Croft has

come a long way in a sector that allows young

people to work hard and prosper.

“I was working in a bank before I got into

farming. I had never milked a cow, but we got

into sharemilking to save money, and it was

easier for me to manage it than to get someone

else to do it.”

Three years ago Wendy

enrolled in Ara Institute

of Canterbury’s NZ

Diploma in Agribusiness

Management; a practical

qualification for working

farmers that is delivered

online with face to face

tutorials in Culverden.

The programme is

run with the Primary

ITO and was rated as

“excellent” by the New

Zealand Qualifications

Authority (NZQA) in a

recent report.

With two young

children and a business

to run, Wendy balanced her studies with her

family and work commitments.

““I think my husband and I worked together

every day for three years! It was hard, and it’s

not for everyone. It’s challenging but it’s really

rewarding.”

Does she miss her city lifestyle? “Yes,

sometimes I miss the city, but I love the lifestyle

here – I have good neighbours and good staff.”

Residential

Investment

Properties

Renting out a home or investment

property has become more complex with

more legislative and insurer requirements

and the potential for issues that were once

never a factor.

Insurance companies have certain

requirements for rental properties so from

the outset, inform your insurer that the

property will be rented. Take out landlord’s

house and chattels cover then read

your policy and contact your insurance

company if you have a concern, to avoid

the potential for a claim not to be paid out.

Insurers often want to be informed when

a house is vacant for a period of time and

require landlords to carry out regular

inspections to ensure the property is being

looked after. Record inspections showing

dates and any problems, along with how

these were addressed.

Landlords have responsibilities in

relation to the law as well. The Residential

Tenancy Act requires tenanted properties

to have operable smoke alarms and

insulation will be compulsory in all rentals

from 1 July 2019.

Smoke alarms must be in place and

operational. If a new house or it has never

had smoke alarms, long-life photoelectric

alarms with a battery life of at least eight

years or

hardwired in

smoke alarms

must be fitted.

Batteries must

be replaced in

existing alarms

as per the

manufacturer’s

A long-life

photoelectric alarm.

dates, and

when the

alarm expires

or stops working, it must be replaced with

a photoelectric or hardwired alarm. There

are also stipulations in relation to the

number of smoke alarms for a rental and

the positioning of these.

Tenants also have a responsibility not

to remove or disarm a smoke alarm and

to replace batteries in older systems when

needed or inform their landlord/property

manager that a smoke alarm is not

working in other cases. Failing to comply

with the law, could lead to a fine of up to

$4,000 for landlords and up to $3,000 for

tenants.

Another concern for landlords that has

been raised in the media in recent times is

drug use and in particular the effects of ‘P’

on a property. Many buyers of properties

previously rented, are now requesting that

a drug test is undertaken before the sale

is confirmed. It is therefore a good idea to

include a clause in the Tenancy Agreement

to allow for the property to be drug tested

from time to time.

Not all ma and pa investors who manage

their own rentals find it easy. They may not

carry out quarterly property checks or find

it embarrassing inspecting the house when

tenants are living there. They may avoid

bringing up issues which could adversely

affect the property and its ultimate value,

or forget to check that rent payments are

made on time.

For those who want an investment

property but not the hassle a professional

property manager would be contracted.

They will find tenants, carry out property

checks to ensure the property is being

looked after, and monitor rent payments,

issuing notice to tenants if needed and

overseeing repairs and maintenance of the

property when required.

Insurers require regular property inspections.

Insurers often want to be informed when a house is vacant for a period of time.

Many buyers of properties previously rented request a drug test is carried out.

A Trophy Lifestyle

This well balanced superbly sheltered property

is located 20 minutes south of Christchurch and

lends itself to a variety of uses. These include

vineyard, olives, hazel nut production and

livestock especially horses or goats because of

the soil type.

This is complemented by a valuable irrigation

consent (2035).

There are excellent sheds which include an

office and workshop - brilliant for a contractor

working from home. There is also a near new,

modern cottage with two car garaging and

separate entrance off Burnham Road. The

substantially re-modelled homestead with four

living spaces includes a gentleman’s club with

billiards table, wine cellar and private courtyard.

Light and bright, this home has a warm

welcoming feel for fun, family or farming.
