Fallen mates

in John’s

thoughts

• By Tom Doudney

AT 15, John Carr felt “very, very

lucky” stepping ashore in Belfast,

Northern Ireland, after the sinking

of his merchant navy oil tanker,

The Stratford in the Atlantic

Ocean during World War 2.

Now 92, and Templeton RSA’s

oldest returned serviceman, Mr

Carr’s thoughts will drift back to

those years and his fallen comrades

on Anzac Day.

He remembers well the night

in September 1940 when his ship

was hit by a torpedo while travelling

in a convoy on the way to

Jamaica.

“It was about midnight, we were

asleep in our cabin and there was

an almighty thud which woke us

all up. I looked out of a porthole

and I saw a reflection of flame and

I thought it was another merchant

ship in the convoy but it was us

on fire because we had oil bunkers

and we had been hit there,”

Mr Carr said.

Speed

limits

could be

changed

• By Tom Doudney

THE SPEED limits on Selwyn’s

roads will be reviewed over the

next six weeks.

The review will cover all district

council-controlled roads but

exclude the state highways, which

are controlled by the New Zealand

Transport Agency.

Weedons Residents Association

chairman John McKim made

a deputation to Wednesday’s

district council meeting to express

concern on the condition of

Maddisons Rd and the speed of

vehicles using it.

He was informed that the possibility

of reducing the speed limit

on the road from 100km/h to a

lower speed, potentially 80km/h,

would be looked at as part of the

review.

Weedons Reserve Committee

members and Templeton

residents have also expressed

concern about Maddisons Rd

recently.

Mr McKim said he was pleased

a speed limit reduction would be

looked into.

“Within [the last] four months

we have had four fairly serious

accidents,” he said.

THE JOHN Carr’s of this world

have seen and experienced things

many of us hopefully will never

have to.

Seventy-six years ago John’s merchant

ship was torpedoed during

the early stages of World War 2.

Not everyone on board survived,

but John, then 15 made it to the

safety of Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Now 92, he is the Templeton

RSA’s oldest returned serviceman.

Reporter Tom Doudney interviewed

him (page 1) and reports

back that John is a cherry bloke,

looking forward to another Anzac

Day next Tuesday.

John went on to join the Royal

Navy and saw action right through

to the end of the war, which of

course was a great relief.

“We were still alive, that was the

thing. We had come through it.”

That says it all.

Rolleston to get 24/7 policing

• By Tom Doudney

SELWYN’S POLICE presence

will be boosted in the next 12

months with the Rolleston

police station to be staffed 24/7

and extra officers to be based

there.

For the first time a senior

sergeant will also be based

permanently in the district, at

Rolleston. Currently Senior Sergeant

Pete Stills,

based at Hornby,

overseas police

operations in

Selwyn.

Rolleston will

be one of the

first 20 towns

Lane Todd

in the country

to receive extra

resourcing to ensure a police

officer will be on patrol and on

call at all hours of the day.

The news came as part of

Police Commissioner Mike

Bush’s announcement on the

Government’s $500 million

Safer Communities package on

Wednesday. The package included

a target of having 95 per

cent of New Zealanders within

25km of patrolling police 24

hours a day.

Commissioner Bush also revealed

how many new staff would

be allocated to each region, with

70 heading to Canterbury.

Canterbury metro commander

Superintendent Lane

Todd said police wanted to provide

enhanced services for rural

communities and Rolleston

would help deliver on that.

“We see this as a huge benefit

not only for the community

but also in enhancing our rural

capability,” he said.

Rolleston’s growing population

and the potential for increased

crime had also been a

factor in the decision.

Currently there are eight officers,

including two sergeants,

based at Rolleston, and three

officers each at the Darfield,

Lincoln and Leeston stations.

Officers work daytime hours

during the week with some late

night shifts over the weekend.

Superintendent Todd said

it was not known at this stage

how many extra officers would

be based at Rolleston and it was

yet to be decided who the senior

sergeant would be.

The plans were for the Rolleston

station to begin operating

24/7 within the next 12 months,

the senior sergeant appointed

within the next six months and

the other new officers on the

beat by Christmas.

It was not known whether

EXTRAS: The

Rolleston

police

station will

accommodate

extra officers,

including

a senior

sergeant, as it

moves to 24/7

operations

within the next

12 months. ​

any additions would need to be

made to the station to accommodate

the extra staff.

Senior Sergeant Stills said

staff were already being called

out to a number of after hours

incidents and having officers

on duty 24 hours would be an

advantage.

“It’s often crashes or traffic

incidents, stock on the road, or

family harm matters,” he said.

Selwyn MP Amy Adams said

the changes at Rolleston were

welcome news.

“This will give our community

more confidence that help is on

hand, and will ensure fewer victims

of crime in Selwyn,” she said.

In Brief

ART GALLERY GRANT

The group behind a proposed new

community art gallery in Leeston

has been granted $20,000 by the

district council to go towards the

first year’s lease. The group had

been seeking $30,000.

DAIRY AWARD FINALIST

Hororata farm manager Kerry

Higgins has made the finals of

the annual New Zealand Dairy

Industry Awards. Mr Higgins, 32,

is a finalist in the dairy manager

of the year category.

SUBDIVISION

A planning hearing for an

application by Omana Trustee

Ltd to subdivide land in Rolleston

will take place at the district

council headquarters on May 24.

The company wants to create 191

residential lots by subdividing

land on Branthwaite Drive and

Lincoln Rolleston Rd.

KIRWEE RESERVE

A proposal to irrigate Kirwee

Reserve using the Central Plains

Water Scheme, when Stage 2

is completed, was approved at

Wednesday’s district council

meeting. The reserve is currently

irrigated from the township water

supply, sourced from underground

wells but exceeds its

allocated amount under Kirwee’s

water metering system.

acism experiences

nspire speech

AN ELLESMERE College

student who observed racism

after moving from the

Philippines to New Zealand has

earned a place in the semi-finals

of a national race relations

speech competition.

Fylgia Romero, 16, secured

her semi-final place after taking

part in the North Canterbury

regional heats of the annual Race

Unity Speech Awards competition

run by the Human Rights

Commission.

She was one of two from those

heats selected for the semi-finals

in Auckland on May 12. If she is

successful there she will be in the

final the following day.

In her speech, Together With

You Aotearoa, Fylgia said she

believed that people could fight

racism through acknowledging

but understanding the differences

that we have, and that

changes could only be made by

showing love.

“Love is the extraordinary

kind of ordinary,” she said.

Fylgia was born in the Philippines

in the highly urbanised city

of Cebu which has 2900 people

per square kilometre, compared

with Selwyn’s 6.9 people per

square kilometre. She moved to

Ellesmere in 2013. Her father is a

dairy farm worker and the move

was in search of a better life.

Since the move, Fylgia has

experienced some low level bullying

in the form of comments

about Asians, while family members

have experienced workplace

racial discrimination. These

personal experiences, together

with those of her friends were

inspiration for her speech.

Fylgia hopes to pursue a career

Fallen comrades remembered

•From page 1

“Two people in the engine

room were killed outright and we

took to a lifeboat. It was very, very

cold.”

Some of the crew were suffering

from hypothermia by the time

they were picked up a few hours

later by a naval vessel.

In May, 1943, when he was 18,

Mr Carr joined the British Royal

Navy with which he served for

the remainder of the war.

In April, 1945, his naval party

landed in Ostend, Belgium, as the

Allies pushed towards victory.

“We stayed in Holland for a

while and fed the children, they

were starving to death, and we

went right through to Germany.

Our object was to take the Blohm

& Voss U-Boat yards in Hamburg

which we did because we thought

the Russians might have been

coming down the Elbe river and

taking all the secrets of the Germans,”

Mr Carr said.

“We were successful, we got all

that, and I stayed in Hamburg for

nearly two years after. I was in

Hamburg for the Armistice Day

and all that.”

He remembered the end of the

war as a great relief.

“We were still alive, that was

the thing. We had come through

it.”

After the war, Mr Carr and his

wife emigrated from the United

Kingdom to New Zealand and he

joined the newly formed Royal

New Zealand Navy.

Anzac Day still meant a great

deal to him.

He said it was important that

the children of today were aware

of what they had been fighting for

– freedom and democracy.

THE FLOW: The waters of the Selwyn River crept back over

formerly dry gravel following recent rainfall.

Selwyn River flowing

under SH1 bridge

SIGNIFICANT rainfall in recent

weeks has seen the Selwyn/

Waikirikiri River flowing under

the State Highway 1 bridge again

– a rare sight during the last three

years which have been dominated

by drought.

Strong currents in the

headwaters allowed the river

to flow about 30km across the

plains.

By the start of last week, more

than six billion litres of water

had flowed down the river, with

around five billion of that seeping

through the gravels and into the

groundwater system.

Environment Canterbury expects

the river to dry up again in

the next few weeks but this flow is

expected to make it easier for the

river to fill up again with smaller

rain events in autumn, winter

and spring.

ECan says the increased flow

is good news for the health of

the river and if it leads to the

headwaters fully reconnecting

with Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere

it could help any eels in the flood

flows trying to make their way to

the sea.

Speed limits could change

•From page 1

“There was one in which a car

hit a telegraph pole and caught

fire and another one which

involved two cars and with one

of them the only thing you could

tell was that it was blue – it was

virtually impossible to work out

what sort of car it was because it

was so badly damaged.”

Mr McKim said the road was

too narrow to support so many

vehicles going at 100km/h and it

was in poor condition due to the

high usage.

He had

recently borrowed

some

speed measuring

equipment

and clocked

cars travelling

down the road

Sam

Broughton

at more than

120km/h and B

train trucks going

110km/h.

“The road is just getting ripped

to pieces,” he said.

Mayor Sam Broughton said it

was important that the district

council took into account the

thoughts of residents who lived

on roads, not just the motorists

that used them.

“We want an efficient network

and being able to travel at

100km/h is important for people

who need to get places but taking

road safety, the width of our

roads, the appropriateness of

heavy trucks and the numbers

on a particular roads certainly

needs to be taken into account.”

Mr Broughton said

roads between Selwyn and

Christchurch were often the

ones where speed limits were the

greatest concern.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills

said changes made in 2015

when speed limits were reduced

from 100km/h to 80km/h on

Shands Rd and others around

Prebbleton appeared to have

reduced crash numbers, based

on anecdotal evidence.

“We will support anything

which enhances safety and

reduces risk,” he said.

“Maddisons Rd is now a far

more popular route with cyclists

than it has been in the past.”

While there is no set date for

any changes proposed through

the review to be decided on, the

matter is expected to come back

to the district council some time

this year.

life and to bring up our daughter,

Amy, somewhere that we could

really enjoy ourselves. We felt

that in England it was becoming

very commercialised and community

spirit was declining and

everybody was so busy and we

wanted a bit more of a relaxed

way of life.

If you’re looking for a place

with community spirit, Lincoln

is a good place to be I guess.

Yes, most definitely this is

home now. We just became citizens

a few months ago.

Must be nice knowing Immigration

can’t suddenly boot you

out now or something.

Yes.

How long have you been in

New Zealand?

Just approaching 10 years now.

You’re a musician too, how

long have you played music?

I have always played music. I

played the keyboard and was in

swing bands in my teen years and

in my 20s I sang a little bit and

played keyboard with my father

as a duo and then rekindled it

(music) since I have come to New

Zealand.

You put out an album a few

years ago, didn’t you?

I did one CD as well as playing

at private functions and lots of

community events that I’ve been

involved in and I’ve run a couple

of community projects.

SMALL CHANGE

MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE

Twice a year we clear the Community Fund collection boxes at

Christchurch Airport and share the money across the community.

Kiwi dollars, international currency, small change from your cup

of coffee, plus a top-up donation from us, all add up for local

charities and community projects.

Drug-ARM Therapeutic Art group is a weekly meeting of people

wanting to make or maintain changes in their drug and/or alcohol

use. Two DrugARM staff members (pictured) support clients to use

art as a way of abstaining from alcohol and drugs. Christchurch

Airport proudly supports Drug-ARM through the Community Fund.

all part of the community spirit

I did a project called Sing Your

Heart Out Christchurch just after

the earthquakes to bring people

together and uplift them through

music and I did one to commemorate

the anniversary of the

start of World War 1. Now I’m

working on a community project

in Selwyn in July where I am

pulling together quite a few Selwyn

community groups involved

in music to do this concert.

Tell me more about that.

It’s going to be held at Lincoln

High School on July 22 and it’s

going to be called A Celebration

of Screen and Stage. There are

groups such as the Kirwee Players,

the Ellesmere Pipe Band, the

Selwyn Community Choir and

quite a few of the duos and solo

artists from Selwyn are going to

work with me on this project. I

just thought it would be a great

idea to bring together people

from different musical styles in

one concert from the community

of Selwyn.

How will it celebrate screen

and stage?

The type of songs that are

going to be performed are the

likes of music themes from

James Bond and numbers from

Hairspray and The Full Monty, so

movie themes, TV themes and

songs from musicals essentially.

PACE OF LIFE: June Burney and her family (husband Ian, left, and daughter Amy centre) moved to New Zealand for a stronger

sense of community and better work life balance. In 2011 she recording her earthquake recovery inspired song Like the Phoenix

from the Ashes (right).

Tell me about the CD you put

out.

That was probably in about

2011 and it was called Love and

Inspiration. The reason I did

the CD really was prompted by

the fact I wrote a song about

people coming together after the

earthquake. On that song in the

recording studio there were quite

a few local children from Lincoln

and two other people I knew

from Selwyn who came and sang

on that.

What was that song called?

Like the Phoenix from the

Ashes.

Do you play music at the Lincoln

Farmers and Craft Market?

Occasionally.

You’re a committee member

of the market too, when did you

first get involved with it?

Probably about eight years ago.

We became involved because

my husband and I like to be

creative and we do photography

and produced a range of photographic

cards of local scenery in

New Zealand, so we joined the

market. As I’ve said we have this

passion for community spirit

and we think it’s an important

thing to maintain in any community,

so along with the other

committee members we try to

keep that going by organising

special community events as well

as the standard market days. We

want people to see the market as

a place where they can socialise

and meet and have fun as well as

buy local produce and crafts.

Why do you think England

has been losing that community

spirit?

I just think people are too busy

working really and I think the

focus is a lot more on money and

paying your mortgage and obviously

everybody has to do that

but I don’t think you should lose

sight of why you are making the

money – so you can have a good

life.

How old is your daughter?

She is 17, in her last year at

Lincoln High School.

Does she like it here or does

she miss England?

She is definitely an adopted

Kiwi, she very much likes living

in New Zealand. She likes the

outdoor life and she is also very

involved in the community too.

She helps out at the market and

is involved in the Lincoln Envirotown.

Environment

Canterbury looking

at ways to limit on

farm irrigation use in

the catchment of the

Selwyn/Waikirikiri

River, which saw

record low flows in

summer

Most irrigators in the

Selwyn catchment source

their irrigation water from

deep, confined aquifers.

These aquifers are, by

definition, separated from

the uppermost, unconfined

aquifer by an impervious

layer, usually clay. In

theory there is little or no

transition of water between

aquifers.

The lack of flow in the

Selwyn River is a manifestation

of the pressure on

the uppermost, unconfined

aquifer. It follows that the

best chance of improving

Selwyn River flows is to increase

recharge and reduce

pressure on the unconfined

aquifer.

We can’t do much to increase

rainfall, but if water

from the Central Plains

scheme were available it

could assist with recharge.

Similarly, the district

council is progressively

shutting down water races

- could this water also be

the Hinds’ aquifer recharge

trial?

In terms of reducing

pressure on the unconfined

aquifer, it is informative

to consider the number of

shallow wells that are in

use now compared with 20

or so years ago.

The short answer is that

there are many, many more

people and businesses

taking water from both

deep and shallow wells

than there were back

then.

It would only be

acceptable for irrigators to

face cutbacks if all these

other users were obliged to

accept similar cutbacks.

Liffey delivers the bugs

MORE THAN 500 different

types of plant and animal were

counted in Lincoln’s Liffey

Stream and domain when the

Lincoln Envirotown BioBlitz

was held recently – and the

numbers continue to rise.

Hundreds of people, including

many children took part in

the event.

A BioBlitz is where the community

and local scientists get

together to find out how many

different species can be found

in 24 hours. The 24-hour clock

was started ceremonially by

the ‘Bug Man’ Ruud Kleinpaste,

who had brought a few

very large weta to climb over

some young admirers.

There were also displays,

talks, walks and activities for

the public to get involved in.

About 20 people investigated

the small organisms living in

the Liffey Stream with the help

of Lincoln University’s Waterwatch

team and Lincoln High

School’s sustainability council

students.

A total of 534 different species

were identified in the 24

hours, but many more will be

identified from samples taken.

During the last Lincoln

BioBlitz in 2009, 1642 species

were found at the final count.

This time there was more than

double the number of fungi

found last time and a long

finned eel more than 70-yearsold

was found.

The event was ceremoniously

concluded with the clock

stopped after 24 hours by

Mayor Sam Broughton.

This event wouldn’t have

happened without support

from many volunteers including

those from Lincoln Envirotown,

Lincoln University and

Lincoln High School, as well

as the scientists who donated

their time and equipment. The

scientists were from Plant and

Food, Landcare Research, the

Department of Conservation,

Lincoln University and Canterbury

Broadfield-based business Red

Band Drainage is celebrating

its 10th anniversary

Certified drainlayer Brent Millar and

his wife Natasha are thrilled to be

marking 10 years of operation after

launching their business in 2007 to

provide residential, commercial and

rural drainage services for their local

area.

The two original staff from the first year

are still there, “This tells us we have a

safe and happy working environment,”

says Brent. “We adhere to the highest

standard of health and safety as we

want our staff to get home safely to

their families after a day’s work. Our

staff are the backbone of our business

and treat it as if it was

their own, therefore we

find this is reflected in

the finished product of

any job we do.

“Red Band Drainage

doesn’t believe in down

time, which is why we

have the latest, most wellmaintained

machinery

and technology to get

Natasha & Brent Millar

any task that’s thrown at us done to

the best possible standard.

“There are not many problems that

our clients come to us with that we

can’t fix. We don’t believe in putting

any job in the ‘too hard’ basket.”

The company is run as two gangs,

Brent says.

“One team predominately looks

after new housing – they will start

a residential house in the morning,

installing all sewer, stormwater, power,

phone, fibre and water and backfill the

same day.

“This is greatly

appreciated by all our

clients as it does not hold

up any other trades. The

other team looks after

anything commercial,

alterations to existing

properties, septic tank

installation and any

other issues that may

pop up.”

Brent and the team of Red Band Drainage

Red Band Drainage has trucks available

for hire when they are not required by

the company.

The team at Red Band Drainage covers

town and country right across the

LAwyERS

Queen of camouflage

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

KATYDIDS ARE bush

crickets or grasshoppers

with long antennae and

can grow to 30-40mm

long.

New Zealand has one

native species known as

Caedicia Simplex or Kiki

Pounamu which is also

found in Australia.

They are vegetarians

and their leaf green colour

and shape with leaf-vein

wing patterns make them

hard to see in your garden.

What can often give them

away is their light chirping

in evening or warm nights.

The unusual name

comes from the call of an

American species which

went ‘Katy did, Katy

didn’t!’ The New Zealand

katydid sounds more like

a ‘zip-zip’ or ‘scissor snip’

sound.

Eggs are laid between

March and June on vegetation.

The younger nymphs

do not have the tent-like

wings but have wing stubs,

and are usually green.

•Specimens collected

by Mike Bowie will be

logged online at http://

naturewatch.org.nz.

This is a place where

you can share what

you see in nature, set

up a citizen-science

monitoring project and

to load photos of your

EXPERTISE: Landcare Research ecologist Colin Meurk sharing the natural history

of the plains and his knowledge of planning a native plant restoration project. ​

NEW

BEGINNINGS:

The Plantout

tour visited

a hillside

restoration

project in

Tai Tapu, six

months after

planting.

Ecological restoration in Selwyn

A RECENT tour of properties

at Hororata and Tai Tapu

highlighted ecological

restoration efforts across

Selwyn.

The Te Ara Kakariki Greenway

Trust, which aims to bring

pockets of native plants back to

Selwyn between the mountains

and the sea, holds its annual

Plantout tour to show people

that planting natives alongside

productive farmland is a good

idea.

About 40 people attended the

tour which visited restoration

sites on three privately-owned

properties in Hororata and Tai

Tapu, as well as Tai Tapu Domain.

The tour always includes talks

by ecologists. This year Colin

Meurk from Landcare Research

spoke about native plants and

how to plan a restoration project.

A number of farmers who have

been planting annually for a

number of years also shared their

insights about site preparation,

maintenance, and which plants

were doing really well.

One of the Hororata landowners,

Tony Edwards, said a few

years back he was hesitant to

start planting but now he wanted

to do more each year.

Some of his plants were now

taller than him only three years

after planting and were starting

to really change the landscape.

“Why wouldn’t I want to

spend time amongst these native

plants?” Mr Edwards said.

There are various funding programmes

which can be applied

for through the trust, including

the Community Environment

Fund (Ministry for the Environment)

and the Selwyn Natural

Environment Fund.

•Anyone looking for advice

and support can contact the

trust via its website www.

kakariki.org.nz

Planting natives

Key suggestions for landowners interested in planting natives

on their property include:

•Seek advice for appropriate plants for your soil type and

micro climate.

•Have a restoration plan that starts with planting more

shrubs, and wait until there is some cover before planting

the larger podocarp trees.

•Take a long-term approach, planting a few hundred plants

every year, therefore not getting overwhelmed by maintenance

of competitive weeds.

•Reduce the ‘edge effect’ by making wider strips of planting

to insure higher survival rates and a better size of habitat

for birds.

•Choose eco-sourced seeds from this region - request this

from your plant nursery. This should ensure your plants are

well adapted to your environment.

Build your next home

with Artisan Homes

Your local registered Master Builder

Home building is as much about understanding the

landscape and the client as it is the plan and the

materials. From our office in Rolleston, Canterbury our

small company has built a huge range of homes that are

distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective.

From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses

to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work

spans all types of house building.

Since 2004 we have carefully built, among other things, a

reputation for constructing high quality houses.

An artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular

expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is

passionate about the quality results they produce.

With decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes

have worked in all areas of residential construction. There

are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom

home compared to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our

overall approach remains the same.

While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted

home building we also are renowned for getting the right

result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult

access, looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of

life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered

or licensed. Our abilities to design and build a range of

houses have increased over the years, as has our skill and

overall capacity. While we don’t have the franchises of our

larger competitors we do have their networks and buying

power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective

results possible.

At Artisan Homes, our passion is building homes for

people who appreciate the work that goes into what will,

ultimately, be a home they love to live in.

Stormwater funding change

One of the issues we are consulting on in our Annual Plan is

whether we should introduce a district-wide rate for stormwater to

replace existing township stormwater rates. The rate would apply

for properties which pay a stormwater rate currently in areas where

the Council manages stormwater. Currently stormwater charges

vary by township based on the cost of providing a local service.

In 2015, we changed from local township rates for water and

wastewater to standard charges per property.

The proposed standard district-wide stormwater rate is $85. A

national benchmarking exercise was recently undertaken comparing

the $85 charge for Selwyn against a dozen similar sized New

Zealand councils, with the $85 charge coming out as one of the

lowest for stormwater. The rate for townships if local stormwater

rates are retained are shown below.

Want to share your views on this issue? See the Annual Plan

information below on how to make a submission.

Another issue we are consulting on in our Annual Plan is whether

the Council should create a new health hub in Rolleston.

Research undertaken in 2014 and 2016 showed that although

Selwyn residents generally had good access to health care,

there were some gaps in services with people having to travel

to Christchurch for appointments with some health providers or

other service agencies. As our population grows, the need for local

services also increases. The proposed Health Hub would help to

meet these needs, by providing a place where health and social

service providers could operate from.

Under this proposal the Council would build a facility on Council

owned land in Rolleston which could be leased to health

professionals, not-for-profit groups, social service agencies and

as commercial office space. The facility would be independently

managed. The project would be an investment by the Council and

would be expected to provide a return within around three years.

On the roads this week

Road resurfacing will take place on Dalethorpe, Downs, Hoskyns and Hudsons Roads, Ayers,

Woodward and Fuller Streets. Stop/ go traffic controls will operate at all sites. Road repairs will take

place on Minchins and Coleridge Roads with traffic controls operating.

A sewer line is being installed on sections of Hamptons, Shands and Selwyn Road to the intersection of

Springston Rolleston Road. There may be a reduction down to one lane on these roads.

Work to complete road repairs from a burst water main is planned at the Tennyson, Byron and Kidman

Street roundabout from Tuesday 18 – Friday 21 April approximately. Detours will be in place.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension

From Monday 17 April the sections of Weedons Ross Road between State Highway One and Jones

Road, and Weedons Road between State Highway One and Levi Road will be closed both ways to

traffic. A closure is also be in place on Weedons Road from Main South Road through to Levi Road. The

closures are to allow cables to be laid as part of the Christchurch Southern Motorway extension project.

Detours will be clearly sign-posted. Both closures will be in place up to 5 May.

Reduced speed limits continue to be in place along State Highway One north of Rolleston where four

laning work continues.

Reduce fire risk on your property with good design

The Council recently invited property owners in the Port Hills to a meeting looking at reduce the risk of

fires affecting this area. In dry conditions rural, lifestyle and hill property owners across the district can

all be affected by fire. There are a range of strategies you can look at to reduce fire risk on your property

and home including your choice of plants and landscaping, maintenance of lawns, gardens and

paddocks and ensuring emergency services can access your property. One of the main ways you can

reduce the fire risk to your home is to create a safety zone around your home by removing flammable

material like woodstacks, long grass, tree branches and rubbish.

The autumn/ winter time is a good time to consider making changes around your home in preparation

for next summer. For advice on reducing fire risk please visit www.selwyn.govt.nz.

Jones takes South Island

modified sprint title

• By Warrick Korstanje

SPRINGSTON driver Courtney

Jones capped off good recent

form by winning the Circle

Jones had put in a lot of

promising runs leading up to the

event but had not had the final

bit of luck needed to win.

However, she put in one of her

best performances at her home

track to win the South Island

title.

With the field boosted by four

Riverside Speedway cars, Jones

had some work to do.

A fifth in the first race was

followed by a win next time out

and in the feature Jones used

the last five laps to build up the

momentum and find the most

suitable track line to complete

the winning pass on Ben Gilmore

on the final turn.

Kate Warren kept the women

to the fore, finishing third in the

feature.

Mini stocks saw the Driven

Redmond. Against 13 other

drivers, Redmond secured the

title with three race wins. Nic

NEW ZEALAND’S youngest Rio

Double bronze medalist

Stedman (men’s 400m T36 and

programme at Rolleston on April

26 at 11am.

Stedman, 17, will bring his

about his career path into the

world of Paralympics.

Sport Canterbury Active

Kids manager Jules Wilke said

children would have the chance

to ask Stedman about his performance

at the 2016 Rio Paralympic

Games.

“William will lead the athletics

‘run, jump, throw’ session and is

looking forward to meeting kids

who, much like himself, started

out with dreams of representing

New Zealand,” Wilke said.

Stedman is known for his

remarkably quick ascent to international

competition.

“William was inspired in 2012

watching the London Paralympic

Games from a trackside seat as a

12-year-old fan from Cashmere

– that’s where the dream began,”

Wilke said.

Sport club jumps at chance

to bring basketball to Selwyn

• By Tom Doudney

BASKETBALL WILL be the

next sport offered to Selwyn

residents by the newly-formed

Waikirikiri Sport club.

The club was formed last year

to bring hockey and other sports

to the district.

It is already taking registrations

for hockey

and will have

teams playing

from next month.

basketball Craig

Craig

Crawford

Crawford said

the club aimed

to have teams

entered into the

2018 Canterbury basketball

competition.

There are no basketball clubs

currently based in Selwyn in

spite of a growing number of

children wanting to play the

sport. At present they can only

play through their school or by

joining a Christchurch club.

“The need for a basketball

club [in Selwyn] is to take the

interest of juniors and youth and

give them somewhere to play as

they develop into seniors,” Mr

Crawford said.

“The great thing is there are so

many good facilities out here for

basketball with the high schools

IN DEMAND: While schools and high schools in Selwyn offer

basketball, those wanting to play for a club have to travel to

Christchurch.

and the local gyms, the community

facilities going in – there

are plenty of places to play.”

Waikirikiri Sport president

Lyndal Marshall said the club

was happy to be able to give

more Selwyn residents the

chance to play another sport.

“There will be other sports

coming in future as well, we’re

just trying to give more people

the opportunity to play sport

locally,” she said.

The club has confirmed Lyttelton

Sharp price for Subaru Impreza

• By Ross Kiddie

THIRTEEN YEARS ago I guided

an acquaintance into a new car, it

was a Subaru Impreza and it was

a car which was priced at $25,000

with four-wheel-drive and 2-litre

engine.

My friend still has that car and

it has now travelled fault-free over

200,000km, scheduled maintenance

has been the only service

cost.

I remember writing at the time

how much of a bargain that car

was, and if finances at the time

had allowed, I may well have purchased

an Impreza as well.

Well, nothing has changed, I

still can’t afford a new car and

now Subaru has another new Impreza

available at a budget price.

For just $5000 more than the new

price in 2004, the new-generation

model represents amazing value,

and it is stacked with value features,

items which you wouldn’t

ordinarily expect in a budget car.

The new generation model gets

Eye-sight driver assist technology,

a camera-based system which is

linked to adaptive cruise control,

lane departure warning, precollision

assist and pedestrian

avoidance. Other features for

comfort and convenience include

automatic stop-start as a fuel

saving measure, keyless entry and

SUBARU IMPREZA: Stacked with value features..

ignition, Apple Car Play and Android

Auto capability, along with

the usual features modern cars

include as a matter of course.

The new Impreza still has

the traditional 2-litre, flat-four

(boxer) engine. It has been

developed to a point where it is

state-of-the-art in terms of power

outputs, emission control and

fuel efficiency. In terms of figures,

the quad-camshaft unit is rated

at 115kW and 196Nm, while a

6.6-litre per 100km/h (42mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage average

is claimed by Subaru.

That works well with the

8l/100km (35mpg) figure showing

on the comprehensive trip

computer, along with a 5l/100km

(56mpg) instantaneous figure

cruising the 100km/h legal limit

(engine speed 1600rpm).

Drive is channelled to all four

wheels through a continuously

variable automatic transmission.

Not only does the four-wheeldrive

system alleviate the fear of

grip loss on loose surfaces, there

is a lot of natural grip supplied on

the seal, the Impreza has handling

ability which is unrealistic for this

class of car.

In the first instance, grip is supplied

by 205/50 x 17in Bridgestone

Turanaza tyres, and even

though they aren’t Bridgestone’s

sport specification rubber, the

tyres have prodigious grip. If you

add in a flat and controlled body

• Price – Subaru Impreza,

$29,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4460mm; width, 1775mm;

height, 1480mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1995cc, 115kW, 196Nm,

continuously variable

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.3sec

• Fuel usage – 6.6l/100km

balance and drive channelled

constantly through to all wheels,

the handling balance is biased

towards sporty.

That comes without the springs

and dampers being overly firmed,

ride quality is still paramount to

the Subaru way of manufacture.

I took the test car on a loop that

took in both sealed and unsealed

surfaces and I’m pleased to report

that for what would be deemed

an everyday family sedan, the Impreza

imparts a sporty handling

sensation.

Power is directed freely through

the transmission. In this form

the Impreza doesn’t get the

turbocharging system of its WRX

stablemates, but it is an honest,

punchy engine. I’ve written many

times how much natural torque

horizontally-opposed engines develop,

and the Impreza’s naturally-aspirated

unit is a honey.

However, first and foremost,

the Impreza caters for the family

unit. While sedans are fast losing

popularity, I’m still a bit of a fan

and I’m quite smitten with Subaru

product; together I’d be sold on

the Impreza in this form.

On-board comfort is high and

space for three rear occupants

isn’t compromised by compact

exterior dimensions. Up front the

seats are body forming and have

a vast range of adjustment and, as

you would expect from Subaru,

the controls fall easily to hand.

Subaru’s line-up isn’t extensive,

but the company is far more than

a global niche market player. All

of the models offered here are

functional and practical, each

designed for a different role. The

Impreza is there to tempt as an

entry level car into the brand.

Just like my friend, those who

do choose to buy Subaru will be

rewarded with reliability, functionality

and a high level of safety,

much of the latter attributed to

the stability and grip four-wheeldrive

offers.

You’d had better be quick,

though, from what I’ve heard

through industry sources the

Impreza in this form is only available

in limited numbers and is

selling fast.

SELWYN TIMES

New cell phone tower

proposal welcomed

A rural health leader says she is “absolutely

thrilled” digital service providers and rivals

Vodafone, Spark and 2degrees are joining

forces to help with rural broadband.

Rural Health Alliance Aotearoa New

Zealand (RHAANZ) chief executive

Michelle Thompson says it is heartening

that the three companies are working

together for the common good so rural

people and isolated communities will

benefit.

Spark, Vodafone and 2degrees have

submitted a joint proposal to build and

share 520 new cellphone towers that would

provide 4G mobile and home broadband

and cellphone services to rural areas.

The plan would see the area of New

Zealand that was covered by mobile

services increase by a quarter and would

extend mobile coverage to another 1200

kilometres of state highway.

Ms Thompson says rural people need

excellent access to modern communication

systems as it would increase access to their

health and social services, enhance their

rural lifestyles and enable profitable rural

business communities.

“Rural communities depend on reliable

and high-quality broadband and mobile

connectivity to operate productive

businesses, attract and retain employees,

maintain social connections and increase

access to high quality health and social

services,” she says.

“Rural New Zealand has black spots

which are risking lives and their livelihoods

and also posing a serious safety hazard for

tourists, residents and migrant workers

as they travel around remote and isolated

areas.

“It’s election year and we want the

government to promise us that all rural

medical facilities will be connected to

fibre-like speeds by 2019. We want to have

multiple carrier mobile coverage on all state

highways by 2019. We want 99 per cent of

the population with more than 50Mbps by

2020 rather than 2025.

“It’s not much to ask and we pay taxes just

as people in cities do. I’d really like to pay

tribute to Vodafone, a strategic supporter of

RHAANZ, and the other digital companies

Spark and 2degrees for supporting our

rural connectivity priorities.

Rural New Zealand is the population

equivalent to New Zealand’s second-largest

city, and rural people live and deal with

endless pressures from all aspects of rural

life, Ms Thompson says.

Fluctuating international markets,

increased business and environmental

compliance requirements, dramatic

weather and climatic events, increased

financial and personal costs of accessing

education, and poorer access to health

and social services all take a toll on the

wellbeing, and vibrancy of rural New

Zealand, she says.

“For years, government, agribusiness and

industry corporates have made decisions

about the viability of their services in rural

New Zealand. The resulting gradual decline

in many rural health, social, education

and agribusiness services has eroded the

social and commercial structure of rural

New Zealand. Better connectivity will be

safer and more productive for everyone in

remote rural areas,” she says.

Medical science a way to approach

river health, paper advises

Medical science and practice has developed

over millennia. The framework used to diagnose,

treat, monitor, and prevent disease provides an

excellent template for river management.

Cawthron Institute freshwater group

manager Dr Roger Young has published

a paper advising there is much to be

learned from the medical practice when

considering ecosystem management.

“This paper draws parallels between

managing and improving human wellbeing,

and the way we should approach river

health.

“Medical science and practice has

developed over millennia. The framework

used to diagnose, treat, monitor, and

prevent disease provides an excellent

template for river management,” Dr Young

says.

In the paper River doctors: Learning

from medicine to improve ecosystem

management it’s recommended ‘river

doctors’ first gather information about a

river, provide a diagnosis, apply treatment,

follow up with regular monitoring and

recommend prevention based on what has

been learned.

According to Dr Young, this approach

would be a significant improvement on

current ecosystem management.

“New Zealand rivers would certainly

benefit from better diagnostics and

monitoring,” he says. “Currently, we know

when something is wrong with a river,

but it’s difficult to pinpoint what exactly,

and there’s very little post-treatment

monitoring, so it’s hard to know what is and

isn’t working.

“We should also take into account the

importance of technology. The medical

profession makes use of the latest

technology and at Cawthron we’re applying

new tools, such as environmental DNA and

drones, to river management.

“We need more of this, combined with

good environmental education, to reduce

the risk of river illness,” Dr Young says.

The paper is the result of an international

collaboration between Prof. Arturo Elosegi

from Spain, Prof. Mark Gessner from

Germany, and Dr Young.

The freshwater ecologists spent a week

working together at the Leibniz-Institute

of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries

in Germany. Here they workshopped the

idea that the medical profession’s approach

to human health could hold the key to

understanding and improving ecosystem

condition.

“As a freshwater scientist, I’ve been

encouraged by the public interest in New

Zealand’s rivers. This interest is important,

because it will take a combined community

effort to improve our river health,” Dr

Young says.

This work was partially funded by

the NIWA-led rehabilitation of aquatic

ecosystems programme, funded by the

Ministry of Business, Innovation and

Employment.

Cawthron Institute provides world-class

freshwater science with expertise in river

health assessment, catchment management,

and water quality.

Fashion colours in

home furnishings

There is plenty of colour choice for home interiors

however, once chosen stick to your theme.

For a comfortable feel, earthy natural

colours and textures in sepia tones of clays

and soft sheepskin beiges complimented

by muted pastels are ideal. Alternatively,

contrast ethereal greys with yellows,

cobalt, soft blues, violet, purple or pastels

like peachy pink, rose, or mint.

Earthy brown-based taupes, greens

and greys offer a composed effect.

Layer these as a backdrop for furniture

pieces, cushions, runners and artwork

that incorporate, soft blue greens, teals,

magenta or touches of gold. Soft aqua

walls trimmed with darker shades will

also set-off contemporary furniture.

A traditional atmosphere will come

from regimental and uniform colours

like black, navy, tan and deep greens. Lift

these with brighter colours.

Black and white combinations are also

still in vogue. Try contrasting white with

dark greys or deep blues, rather than

black. They will attract the eye and make

a statement.

Neutral colour schemes are enhanced

with a painted or wallpaper feature wall.

It will not dominate and will provide a

degree of separation in open plan areas.

Choose the wallpaper then the paint for

the other walls, door trim, skirtings and

accessories, drawing the colours out of the

wallpaper or blending with it.

For a décor that reflects confidence

and vibrancy, choose more dramatic

colours like greens, bluer greens, yellows,

pinks, oranges, mandarin red and violet,

individually or together. These may be

within wallpaper on a feature wall or

one-off pieces such as a patchwork chair,

paisley cushions, throws, vases, or wall

hangings.

Colour of the year is purple for fashion

wear and home interiors. It signifies

strength and stability while softer violet

is modern and sentimental. Both work in

the rooms we play in and those we relax

in.

Contrast ethereal greys with

colours such as soft blues.

Earthy natural tones create a

comfortable feel.

Violet is modern and

sentimental.

More dramatic colours can be

introduced in one-off pieces.

A good time

for pruning

fruit trees

Autumn is traditionally pruning time

where spindly thin, criss-crossing, dead or

diseased branches are removed and trees

shaped so breeze and light get through.

This assists pollination and fruit ripening.

The tree’s height or width may also be

trimmed back for easier harvesting.

Pruning should only be carried out in

dry warm conditions so the tree’s wounds

are not exposed to disease and fungal

spores in the air so winter is generally not

a good time to prune.

Stone fruits like cherries nectarines,

peaches and plums or blueberries, are best

pruned late summer or early autumn after

fruiting.

Some dwarf apples and apricots have

been bred to not need an annual prune

while other apples and pears will like a

good clipping.

Plants like Chilean guavas, feijoas, figs

and olives are best pruned after harvesting

while grapes and kiwifruit are a winter

job so branches can be trained in a certain

direction. Citrus pruning should be left

until late spring, after the last of the frosts

is over.

When pruning nectarine, peach and

plum trees, aim for an open centre. Apples

and pears need a main upright trunk and

branches stemming out.

Avoid stressing a tree through over

pruning; taking just a third of a branch or

the tree itself.

Using sharp pruning shears or loppers,

make forty five degree angle cuts (so

moisture will drain off), a little above

branches and buds that are pointing

outwards, and then apply a pruning paste.

Burn diseased material or put it in the

rubbish bin (not the green bin), never

composting it as this could spread disease

to other plants in the garden. Lastly, clean

pruning equipment by wiping the blades

with methylated spirits.

Pruning a tree lessens the potential for

pests and disease, increases its survival

chances and improves fruiting potential.

With apples & pears, branches should stem out from a main upright trunk.

Autumn is traditionally pruning time.

APRIL ONLY

OPEN TUESDAY to FRIDAY 9.00am to 4.30pm SATURDAY & SUNDAY 10.00am to 4.00pm

GRAPEFRUIT is one of

winter’s colourful citrus

jewels. Packed with

antioxidants just when we

need them, the grapefruit

is a popular fruit tree to

have in the home garden.

The fruit may be an

acquired taste as it can be

rather sour, but there are

a few tricks to draw out its

sweetness.

In the United States,

where grapefruit are a

breakfast staple, they are

much sweeter because

of the way they are

grown. Most commercial

grapefruit orchards are

in the hot states, such as

Florida, where they are

grown with irrigation. In

spite of this, grapefruit

are one of the most coldtolerant

citrus fruits and

will withstand some frost.

When selecting the place

to plant your tree, find

the hottest part of your

property, ideally with a

masonry wall to release

heat to help sweeten the

fruit.

To get the most

sweetness and ripeness

from the fruit, leave it on

the tree for a long time – it

can take up to 14 months

to ripen properly.

The variety you choose

is also important. Wheeny

grapefruit takes a long

time to produce fruit

– this variety tends to

produce fruit biennially.

Citrus needs full sun

and ample moisture, but

reasonable drainage. It

needs a spot with good

airflow but not windy, and

it doesn’t like to be too

crowded.

Golden special is always

productive and the

fruit not too sour. This

grapefruit is a breakfast

staple, sweetened with a

little honey or a sprinkle

of raw sugar.

Citrus care

Citrus are surface

rooters so they don’t

do well with grass growing

around them, particularly

when they are young. It

is much better to lightly

skim the grass from the

surface without disturbing

the roots of the tree,

removing the competition

to beyond the “drip line” if

you can.

antioxidants grapefruit is a

sweet breakfast staple.

Question:

I have a bit of grass grub in my lawn,

what can I do to get rid of it?

The recommended treatment

Answer: for grass grub is to use a soil

insecticide such as Lawn

Guard. There are several in the garden centres available,

usually containing the same active ingredient, but

with their own brand name. Best head to your local

garden centre and ask for their recommendation. Make

sure that you read the instructions very carefully, and

follow all the steps indicated on the bottle! Now is a

great time to treat grass grub while the weather is still

warm. It is a good idea to treat the whole lawn, then

give it a sprinkle of fertiliser afterwards. Intelligro’s

Lawn Fertiliser is excellent for creating a lush lawn.

Come down and grab a bag, even if you aren’t treating

for grass grub. Established lawns can be fertilised

now too, just make sure that you water thoroughly

after application.

New questions received by

Tuesday 25th April.

how will I know I have grass

grub in the lawn?

Grass grub lawn damage shows as patchy areas of dead grass. Eggs

of the grass grub found here are laid in the soil during spring/summer,

and normally hatch after about 2 weeks. The small larvae then feed on

the roots of grasses until spring, growing to 20-25 mm long. Diseased

lawn will turn yellow and die off leaving a dead mat of turf.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

A community

development at

Devon Green

The first two groups of Devon Green purchasers

recently took possession of their new homes, and

already the new residents are talking about having

a street party to celebrate.

An initiative of Generation Homes, the

Devon Green community development is

an example of affordable building that still

offers a high quality product. It is therefore

not surprising that this new subdivision

is attracting interest from a mix of people

that include individuals, mature couples,

and first home buyers cashing in on their

KiwiSaver and the opportunity to realise a

HomeStart Grant.

“With the landscaping and finishing

work now complete, the homes look really

good,” says Evan Beker who along with

wife Nadja, are joint venture partners of

Generation Homes Christchurch.

“We had a goal of creating a vibrant

community with this development, and

it has been fantastic seeing this coming

together.”

The homes in Devon Green cost

between $435,000 and $465,000 for a

three bedroom architecturally designed

semi-detached or standalone home and

land package. All come with high quality

fittings that include engineered stone

bench tops and standard Bosch appliances

in the kitchen, heat pump, and ensuites/

walk-in robes in the main bedrooms.

There is also ample storage and indoor,

outdoor flow through sliders that lead to

patio and garden courtyards.

The total size of the homes varies from

127 to 155 square metres. The smaller

units have single car garaging while those

between 140 and 155 square metres have

a double garage. Section sizes average

around the 400 square metre mark.

Externally, long-run roofing, upgraded

bricks and linear oblique feature cladding

combine to make the homes extremely

attractive, as does the fully landscaped

sections. A mix of trellis style fencing

and hedges separate the homes while

specimen trees will be planted throughout

the sub-division for an appealing open

environment.

A total of forty five homes are planned

for Devon Green, fourteen to be two storey

townhouses and thirty one single level

dwellings. Already twenty six of the latter

have been sold with the last stage of single

level packages soon to be released.

Generation Homes has also just released

their two storey townhouse stage. These

spacious three bedroom 150 square

metre homes overlook the Devon Green

reserve. Layout options include two

bedrooms upstairs with an ensuite and

master bathroom while there is also a

separate downstairs bedroom and toilet.

Some designs also have an ensuite for

the downstairs bedroom. These layout

options make these townhouses ideal for

single people who wish to have a flatmate,

for multi-generational families, and for

investors.

Devon Green is located at the northern

end of Strauss Drive in Devon Park,

Rolleston and is featured at: www.

generation.co.nz/dg_home.

Generation Homes has just released their two storey

townhouse stage at Devon Green

Homes at Devon Green range from 127-155 square metres.

Building blocks

to a new home

As Cantabrians continue to move forward, when building

a new home, here’s a reminder to pay attention to some of

the fine details...

Anyone intending to build a new home

should have the builder’s contract

checked out by an experienced lawyer.

A payment schedule can also

minimise financial risks. Issues that

you may have to deal with include:

the deposit, guarantees and warranties

If you want to compare building

companies, it’s important to get down

to finer details such as how many

power points there are per room, the

type of windows you are having or

which paint finishes are included.

Questions to ask

builders include:

• Do you have a completion guarantee

and how does it work?

• Is there a loss of deposit

guarantee?

• Is the company a

Registered Master Builder

and does it use thirdparty

written guarantees?

• What is the schedule for

payments?

• How are the deposit and

progress payments

administered?

• Are they held in a solicitor’s trust

fund?

• Will the master franchisor complete

the build if the franchisee goes out

of business

• What are the exact specs?

• Are the prices fixed?

• What is excluded from the build?

• Are there any restrictions on

driveways or any other connections?

• Can you speak with clients who

have just completed a build?

Do your homework before you decide

on a building company and you will

have a less stressful time once the

building process starts.
