More

rain

needed

say

farmers

• By Tom Doudney and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

SELWYN’S farmers,

environmentalists and those who

get their water from a private well

will be united in at least one way

this winter – they will be hoping

for a lot more rain.

Three years of dry winter

weather on the Canterbury Plains

have left groundwater levels

extremely low and been a big contributor

to the Selwyn/Waikirikiri

River and some streams drying

up during the summer.

Coes Ford, a popular swimming

spot until recently, was completely

dry in late February, although

recent rainfall means the water

there is now flowing again.

ECan’s chief scientist Dr Tim

Davie said that if Selwyn experienced

a fourth dry winter in a

row the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River

would likely go dry at Coes Ford

for most of the summer.

“Other lowland streams flowing

into Te Waihora would similarly

go dry,” Dr Davie said.

Today is a day of remembrance of

those who we have lost through war.

Many of you will have been at

ceremonies this morning and they

are always very special. For me the

most emotive moment is seeing

the former soldiers at the front of

the parade. What they must have

seen, gone through, is too horrific

for many of us to even fathom. We

thank you, and all those soldiers who

did not come home, for your service.

Changing tack, I hope that some

of you managed to see the amazing

light display on show in our sky

on Saturday and Sunday night.

The Aurora Australis was simply

incredible, check out the photos on

Alcohol, golf clubs targeted

• By Andrew King

ALCOHOL AND sports gear

were targeted in two burglaries

of sports clubs in the Selwyn

district.

The Tai Tapu Golf Club was

broken into recently, allegedly

by two men, and eight sets of

hire clubs were taken from a

shed.

Club administrator

Steve

Piper said it

was incredibly

frustrating.

“We had 12

sets, now we

Chris

Thornley

have four,” he

said.

“They were

not very clever.

They had no masks, and no

gloves and were captured on our

CCTV cameras.”

It was not the only club to be

hit.

The Waihora Rugby Club

which is right beside the golf

club was also broken into twice

in two nights.

Due to a break-in about five

months ago the club had moved

the position where it stored its

alcohol.

That area was broken into

last month twice, with nothing

taken but a big mess was left.

“They basically broke in and

threw clothes and gear around,

broke a few things then left,”

president Chris Thornley said.

“They need to pull their heads

in [the offenders]. We are a

community-based rugby club

trying to give kids something to

do on the weekend.”

He said instead of tearing

around at night destroying

things, why not join up and play

a sport.

“They could burn off some of

that excess energy,” he said.

Community services manager

for Papanui Senior Sergeant

Stephan McDaniel said offenders

had broken into clubrooms

in Papanui and Hornby as well

as Lincoln.

“Police are currently

investigating the burglaries

to four separate clubrooms

that have occurred over the

last month,” Senior Sergeant

McDaniel said.

He said most of the offending

was targeting alcohol.

“Positive leads are being followed,

however, the police will

be increasing patrols around

these facilities and ask the public

to be vigilant and report any

suspicious activities,” he said.

The police are also asking

for the public to report any

suspicious private sales of cheap

alcohol.

by phoning 363 7400 or anonymously

through Crimestoppers

on 0800 555 111.

IRRIGATION SCHEME

The second stage of the Central

Stage 2 of construction of the

irrigation scheme is set to begin

Tourist levy would help DOC

Arthur’s Pass

Wildlife Trust

chairman Pete

Neale writes about

introducing a

tourist entry levy

to support the

Department of

Conservation

The Arthur’s Pass Wildlife Trust has

been in operation since 2010. It is a

group of keen volunteers who set up and

maintain around 800 predator traps in

the vicinity of Arthur’s Pass Village.

Our funding comes from a number of

donation boxes located in the area.

For bigger projects we have recently

received funding and assistance from

Environment Canterbury, the Department

of Conservation and Rata Foundation.

By reducing stoat and rat numbers

in the area, we have successfully helped

increase local populations of roroa, kea,

whio, titipounamu and several other native

birds as we try and establish Predator

Free NZ by 2050.

DOC also has a large “predator team”

operating in the area, in particular

working with the critically endangered

kakariki.

The Kea Conservation Trust is working

hard to educate locals and tourists

on how best to admire kea without

causing them harm through too much

human interaction.

That’s where the good news ends and

“the rant” starts.

DOC is seriously under-funded in a lot

of areas. After the wet summer that the

majority of the country got, a foot bridge

on the Arthur’s Pass walking track was

deemed unsafe and has to be closed

after rain events until it can be inspected

again.

This has also led to the closing of the

most popular short walk in Arthur’s Pass,

to the Devils Punchbowl Waterfall.

Arthur’s Pass has often been described

as the “gem of the Selwyn district”, so to

have the two most popular walks closed

over Easter and the school holidays has

disappointed many travellers.

Even though fixing these assets should

be given top priority, no extra funding

is available at the regional office, so

things have to wait until local staff can

fit the project in to their already hectic

schedules.

One way to solve this is to introduce a

tourist entry levy. If everyone who enters

New Zealand paid $10 and it went to

DOC, we would see a huge improvement

in conservation efforts and in the morale

of DOC staff. Remember this option

when September 23 comes around and

vote accordingly.

Students achieving in NCEA

EDUCATION IS one of the most

important investments a Government can

make.

A strong education sees every generation

of young Kiwis ready to succeed on the

world stage.

The final NCEA results for 2016 show

just how well our students are achieving

and how many more young people are able

to tap into the opportunities that a good

education offers.

The hard work of teachers and students is

paying off, with achievement up across the

board.

Nationally, achievement in year 11

NCEA level one is 75.5 per cent, up from

62.5 per cent in 2008. Year 12 NCEA level

two achievement is 78.4 per cent, up 12 per

cent since 2008. Year 13 NCEA level three

achievement is 64.5 per cent, up from 53.4

per cent in 2008, and achievement of the

University Entrance Award is up 0.6 per

cent to 49.2 per cent.

Here in Selwyn, year 12 NCEA level two

achievement has risen from 80.6 per cent

in 2008 to 87 per cent last year.

Back in 2008, Māori and Pasifika students

were struggling, with almost half

leaving school without NCEA level two.

As a Government, we found this unacceptable

which is why we made a commitment

to lifting achievement through

targeted investment to support our

hard-working and dedicated teachers. This

investment has made a difference as the latest

figures show.

The most outstanding of the 2016 results

show that year 12 NCEA level two achievement

by Māori students has increased from

51.6 per cent in 2008 to 74.9 per cent, and

achievement by Pasifika students has increased

from 50.5 per cent to 79.5 per cent.

This success is spread across the country.

I am proud to be part of a Government

that prioritises education and wants to see

our young New Zealanders get ahead

This Government will continue a 21 st -

century approach to ensure that every

young New Zealander is supported in the

best way possible to achieve their potential.

100 per cent awesome is how Barber Chris describes the

day he gave away the first 100 hair cuts at his new South

Point barber shop Hair 4 Men.

“It was a great way to get to meet some members of our

local community and to let them see what we do,” he

said. “The reaction was terrific and we’ve had some great

feedback about the service and how pleased clients were

with the end result.”

The new barber shop in Faringdon is an establishment

which will enable the men and boys of the Selwyn District

a place to make sure they are looking sharp whether it

be with a hair cut or a gents wet shave . Owner Chirs

has extended his success in the industry with this new

establishment adding to his businesses already operating in

Ashburton and Geraldine.

Chris has been in the industry for more than 36 years so

knows a thing or two about the latest trends in beards and

the sharp new styles men around the world are sporting.

In fact Chris was recently placed in the top four barbers in

New Zealand at a recent Barber Craft event. There has also

been another apprentice starting this week.

“We keep an eye on the latest designs that are happening in

America and Europe so you know you are getting the latest

clip, cut or grooming.”

“We’re not hairdressers doing men’s cuts, we’re fully

qualified barbers who are at the top of their game giving the

males of this area a place they can come which is just for

them.”

Here you will be able to appreciate the full services of a

traditional barber – where service is key and where the cuts

are….well cutting edge.

You will also find retro is cool with authentic barbers’ chairs

imported from Europe and the tractor’s chair for kids which

will surely prove a popular place for the littler chaps to sit.

Hair 4 Men are also suppliers of haircare products including

beard oils and waxes, a good range of other items to keep

you well groomed.

So if you want to ensure you have the quality of a

traditional barber’s cut then don’t hesitate to see the

team at Hair 4 Men, open Monday to Friday 8am to

6pm and 8am to 4pm on Saturday.

Rates concern for new facility

• By Tom Doudney

SOME HORORATA residents

are concerned that a possible

new community centre being

discussed could push up rates.

Go Hororata is a strategic

focus group made up of the

Hororata Community Trust, the

Hororata Reserve Management

Committee, the Hororata

Citizens Committee, along

with the local playcentre, tennis

club, Scout group and rifle

group.

It was formed to create a

shared vision of how the area’s

public spaces, including the

domain and the hall, should be

developed in future.

The possibility of building a

new community centre in the

domain to replace the current

hall, which is over the road from

the domain, has been discussed

as one possible idea.

The existing hall would need

to be renovated if it was retained

where it was.

If the new community centre

was built instead, elements

of the existing hall could be

retained and used in the new

building, with the old site being

sold to raise funds.

Some Hororata residents

told the Selwyn Times they had

concerns around any potential

rates rises associated with a new

facility.

One resident, who declined

to be named, said residents

had been surveyed in 2013 on

whether they wanted a new

community centre built to

replace the old hall, and the

idea had idea had received low

support.

“A village of 120 people who

don’t use the hall, shouldn’t

have to pay for [an expensive]

facility,” the resident said.

Hororata Citizens Committee

member Stuart Oliver said the

community had a range of views

on the matter.

“I’ve got my views, I’d like

to leave it where it is, but then

other people have got different

ideas. We’ve got to look towards

Domain

the future I suppose,” Mr Oliver

said.

“I don’t mind, as long as it’s

not thrown at the ratepayer to

cover a massive expense.”

Go Hororata did not wish to

comment on the proposal at this

stage.

The organisation is aiming

to have a proposal to put to the

community within the next two

months.

Farmers want

more rain

•From page 1

“Groundwater levels would

remain extremely low. For farmers

and other water users who rely

on shallow wells they [would be]

likely to experience difficulties, and

may have dry wells for much of the

summer.”

He cautioned that it was not yet

known if it would be another dry

winter or not.

Irrigation New Zealand chief executive

Andrew Curtis said a steady

consistent rain that soaks into the

groundwater is what is needed.

“If we were to get another winter

where we have similar sorts of

rainfalls in the last few years yes life

is going to get quite challenging,”

he said.

He said the rain recently is

recharging the aquifers and the

Selwyn/Waikirikiri River is now

flowing from “top to bottom”.

Federated Farmers Mid Canterbury

Farmers provincial president

Michael Salvesen said he was

uncertain as to how much rainfall

the Canterbury Plains will need but

more was required.

“It has been wetter a lot more so

far this year than it has been in the

last three years . . . groundwater

levels have recovered a bit and they

are probably still recovering,” he

said.

Public to decide where

speed indicator may go

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A NEW survey asking the

public where they would like to

see a roadside speed indicator in

West Melton is under way.

The West Melton Residents’

Association is planning to purchase

its second speed indicator

device and rotate it throughout

the town to slow traffic.

Association member Bruce

Russell said due to the population

growth post-earthquake,

the area had more children

crossing roads.

According to Statistics New

Zealand, West Melton’s population

had increased from about

5500 to more than 7000 between

2006 and 2013.

“We are just getting too much

speed around the districts.

Particularly on Halkett Rd and

past West Melton School,” Mr

Russell said.

He said people needed to be

reminded of their speed and

residents have indicated they

would like to see more devices

in the area.

Survey participants will be

required to rate each road listed

to determine poor and good

locations.

REDUCING SPEED: West

Melton residents Lois Lea

Our People

SELWYN TIMES

Kerry Higgins

Farm to Beehive and back to farm

Hororata’s Kerry Higgins

is a national finalist

in the New Zealand

Dairy Industry Awards’

manager of the year

category. He spoke to

Tom Doudney about

what’s involved with

managing a large herd

and his former job

working security at

Parliament

Do you live in Hororata or just

work there?

Yes, I live on the farm.

How big is it?

We are 528ha with a milking

platform of 433ha with two sheds

on that milking 1340 cows.

Is 1340 quite a large herd for

a manager to handle or is that

quite normal?

I guess it’s relatively large.

We’ve got two sheds and I’ve got

two herd managers underneath

me looking after each shed, so

I’m a bit more of a hands-on

operational manager overseeing

them and still getting amongst it

with the day to day jobs.

With a herd of 1340 do you

recognise individual cows or

is it just impossible with that

many?

A lot of people probably don’t

realise that cows actually do have

quite a personality for themselves

so you definitely have animals

that you recognise. You are milking

them twice a day every day

for 300 days of the year so you

do get to see them a lot and get to

know their traits. They all have

their funny old things, some of

them need a scratch behind the

ear before they come into the

shed and others are always the

slow ones that are going to be at

the back of the pack.

What does your day to day job

entail?

For myself it’s probably team

management, making sure that

the daily jobs are done and the

cows are fully fed and nice and

happy. Stockmanship – making

sure there are no lame or sick

animals. Then, general farm

duties – I’m halfway through a

pasture walk at the moment just

gauging how much feed we have

got for the cows and whether we

need to be putting in supplement.

Then just machinery maintenance,

environment management

of making sure our effluent and

fertiliser and everything is not

breaking restrictions.

What is the biggest challenge

in your job?

Right now it’s managing my

time through to the end of the

season because myself and my

wife Anita are actually moving

on to a contract milking position

in Culverden at the end of the

season (June 1). I am trying to

manage my responsibilities here

on the farm for the next manager

coming in and also my responsibilities

of going on to nationals

[in the Dairy Industry Awards]

and then also organising myself

for next season.

How long have you been

working on this particular farm

and what has led you to make

the move to the next one in

Culverden?

This is my fourth season on

this farm, my third as a manager.

I started out six years ago with

Anna and Sam O’Reilly near

Darfield. I did two seasons

with them and then wanted to

progress so I got a list of good

operators in the area from a farm

consultant and started cold calling

them to tell them who I was,

what we wanted to do and where

we wanted to go in the industry.

Leon and Bronwyn, who I work

for now, were some of those

people that I called. They have

known from the beginning of

this season that we were looking

to move on and go contract milking

to just be able to grow our

own equity and push forward to

WITH THE

HERD: Kerry

Higgins says

the 1340

cows on the

Hororata

dairy farm

he manages

all have

their own

personalities. ​

that ultimate goal of farm ownership

for ourselves.

Do you have a time line in

mind for when you might own

your own farm?

We have got a goal that by my

40th birthday which is seven

years away that we have about 20

per cent equity in a property. As

to how we get there, the industry

is changing all the time, so our

first step is this contract milking

position.

Have you had jobs off the

farm in the past?

I actually had a range of jobs

FAMILY TIME: Kerry and Anita Higgins with their daughters

Mackenzie, 3, and Emerson, four months.

in the security industry and

finished up as a senior security

officer at Parliament. I’m from a

high country station initially. My

parents own a station down near

Lake Benmore in the Mackenzie

basin and I went off to university

in Dunedin where I met my wife

Anita. Then we did a couple of

years in Wellington. We always

wanted to come back farming but

didn’t know how we were going

to do it so we just decided to have

a crack at dairying. We have got

two daughters, Mackenzie, who

just turned three, and Emerson

who is four-months-old.

When you were doing security

in Parliament were you on a

first name basis with many of

the MPs?

A few of them, they were pretty

busy guys and girls really but it’s

like everyone, they would chat

away when you saw them. People

like John Key were probably a

wee bit busier so you wouldn’t

bug him too much.

In your time there were any

exciting or interesting incidents

like if someone tried to bring

something into Parliament that

they shouldn’t have?

No, there was the odd protest

around banning 1080 or different

things like that, but I suppose

the busiest day was when Hillary

Clinton came over. That was

pretty full on because she had all

her secret service guys who were

running around like the movies.

How do you feel about being

a finalist in the New Zealand

Dairy Industry Awards?

I’m over the moon. It’s a massive

opportunity for [Anita and I]

moving forward in our careers.

How do you get entered in

that?

You put your own name forward

and you have a first round

of two judges come on to your

farm and then you do an hour

and a half presentation and show

them what you do.

What are your hobbies and

interests off the farm?

I dabble in a bit of squash and

then spending time with my

girls. I’m big on family time.

Backyard critters

Orb web spiders hide on your house

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

GARDEN orb web spiders

are very conspicuous

because of their geometric

webs that glisten with

morning dew or sun.

The species is common

outside of the house, either

hiding in the corner during

the day or in the middle of

the web at night.

The orb web spider is a

10 to 12mm spider from

Australia that probably got

blown to New Zealand in

a natural process called

ballooning, where spiderlings

attached to fine silk

can disperse hundreds of

kilometres.

The spider’s scientific

name, Eriphora pustulosa,

is in reference to the five

humps on its back, two

larger in the middle and

three at the rear, which

helps to identify it.

The species is incredibly

variable in colour which

helps it blend in to its environment.

When the web snares

prey, the spider will immobilise

it by wrapping silk

around it.

Egg sacs are initially

brown but turn olive green

over time and consist of a

loose, wiry silk, often found

Longer hours

for libraries?

Proposed rate changes

As part of our Annual Plan, we are now consulting on some key

topics to help guide our activities for July 2017 to June 2018. Along

with consultation on these topics and our work programme, we are

also consulting on rates levels for 2017/18.

The average rate increase is 4.5%, however the changes for

individual properties will vary. The main factors affecting rates are:

· changes to the general rate

· a proposal to replace different township stormwater rates with a

standard $85 rate in areas where the Council manages stormwater

· an increase in the district water rate from $370 to $391 for partially

metered supplies and from $214 to $226 for fully metered supplies

· an increase to the Arthur’s Pass and Castle Hill refuse rates from

$79 to $121, and introduction of a recycling targeted rate to reflect

the new service to be provided at these locations

· increases to water race targeted rates (Ellesmere 10%, Malvern

20% and Paparua 20%) to reflect the cost of maintaining the water

race network

· an increase to the Library Rate to fund a trial of longer opening

hours

· some increases to reserve and community centre targeted rates,

with bigger increases for Tai Tapu and West Melton to help pay for

new community facilities.

As part of our Annual Plan we are seeking your comments on whether local libraries should be open

on Sundays and for longer in the early evening to make it easier for people to use library services.

Currently, libraries are open on weekdays from 8.30am-5pm, with Lincoln and Rolleston offering

late night opening on Thursdays until 7pm. Libraries are also open on Saturdays from 9.30am-

12.30pm. With the current opening times, some people find it difficult to visit local libraries.

Council service centres are currently only available from 8.30am-5pm on weekdays. With changes

to library opening hours proposed, extended hours for service centres at Darfield, Leeston and

Lincoln are also proposed, with service centre functions available from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays

(but not on Sundays). The extended hours will be trialled for 6 months and reviewed before a

decision is made on whether to make the change permanent. Opening for extended hours will

increase the running costs of libraries and require a $10 rate increase per property.

Proposed new opening times for libraries are:

Monday & Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday

On the roads this week

Road resurfacing will take place on Ayers, Woodward and Fuller Streets and Hudsons Road, with stop/

go traffic controls operating at all sites. Road levelling will take place on Coleridge Road, with priority

give way controls operating. Footpath reconstruction work is planned on Torlesse Crescent in Darfield.

From Monday 1 May until mid June, road widening will occur on Jones Road between Weedons Ross

Road and the Lyttelton Port Company. The road will remain open, but may be reduced to one lane at

times with traffic delays expected. Maddisons Road is suggested as an alternative route at peak times.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension

From Wednesday 26 April, Waterholes Road (between 865 Waterholes Road and the intersection

of Waterholes Road and Hamptons Road) will be closed to allow for some work in preparation for a

motorway overbridge. The closure will be in place until late May, with detours in place.

Sections of Weedons Ross Road between State Highway One and Jones Road, and Weedons Road

between State Highway One and Levi Road are closed both ways to traffic. A closure will 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.

Share your views on our Plan

To find out more about our Annual Plan and make a submission

please visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay. We also have a quick

five minute survey open on the plan. Completed survey entries will

go into a draw to win a $50 prezzy card. Both submissions and

brought back to life, and witness what an alien invasion is like.

“The app involves children in a number of fun tasks at parks

including finding dinosaur eggs, and herding kittens which provides

a great workout,” says Selwyn District Council Senior Events and

Recreation Advisor Dave Tippett.

“The app combines technology and physical activity in a free

engaging activity for families to try out over the school holidays.”

The ‘Magical Park’ app is designed for kids aged 6-11. It can be

downloaded from Google Play or the ITunes App Store for free. It

is compatible with iPhone 5+, iPad 3+, or android devices with a

compass, gyroscope, accelerometer and GPS.

The average playing time for kids using the app is 30-60 minutes and

in this time kids typically cover between 700 metres and 2 kilometers.

“Magical Park is being trialed at Rolleston Reserve and if it proves

popular we will look at introducing it at some other parks across

Selwyn,” says Mr Tippett.

Signage is installed at Rolleston Reserve (by the skate area) with

information on how to participate in Magical Park.

Selling food? New laws affects you

If you sell food – whether in a shop, online or from home – you need to know about changes to food

safety laws which may affect you. Under the Food Act, you can sell food you make at home. But you

need to make sure it’s safe and follow the same food safety rules as other businesses – which may

involve being registered and getting checked. There are some exemptions in place for registrations –

for example if food is sold for fundraising or if catering occurs for a single event then registration is not

required. The new rules are designed to ensure that people can have confidence that the food they buy

is safe. Illness from food contamination or improper storage or cooking can make people seriously ill.

The Ministry for Primary Industries have a tool called ‘Where do I fit?’ (online at www.mpi.govt.nz/

where-do-i-fit) which you can use to work out whether you need to be registered when carrying out

your activity. If you would like to chat to someone regarding food safety rules and how they apply to you

please phone the Council’s food safety contractor Food and Health Standards on 365 1667 or email

office@foodandhealth.co.nz. Food and Health Standards also provide a mentoring service which can

provide assistance on developing a Food Control Plan, if this is required. There is a cost for this service.

Driven

Popular Colorado up for a challenge

• By Ross Kiddie

NEW ZEALAND has become

quite the ute-buying nation.

That doesn’t surprise me, Kiwis

are following trends out of North

America and Australia.

In the last few years ute sales

here have shot up to record levels.

While it’s fair to say most buyers

are choosing Ford and its Ranger,

all manufactures which ply that

part of the market are claiming

success.

None more so than Holden

with its Colorado, it is selling

hard on the heels of Ranger, a

new model was launched last

year and as I reported in these

columns in November, it is a

standout in terms of refinement

and, of course, practicality.

That evaluation focused on

the mid-spec LTZ; five days with

the range-topping Z71 has done

nothing to alter my affection for

the popular four-wheel-drive

double cab.

Clearly, the Z71 is aimed more

towards the recreational buyer,

it has decals, stripes, body kit

and a level of specification which

wouldn’t work for many industry

roles.

However, I found the deck

cover functional and useful for

low loads, I took a deck full of

foliage to the green recycling

HOLDEN COLORADO Z71: Genuine off-roader.

centre, to be able to pack it down

and hold it secure with the fibreglass

cover was simply brilliant.

I also used that area to transport

the cricket gear I use as year 4

coach, to have it locked secure

when I was away from the vehicle

was also another bonus.

These tasks were no match

for the Colorado’s 1000kg load

capacity, but they did serve to

prove how adaptable the modern

ute has become, and if you add in

a 3500kg tow rating the Colorado

is right up there in terms of load

carrying performance.

At the other end sits a 2.8-litre,

four-cylinder twin-camshaft

turbocharged diesel engine. It is

rated bay Holden at 147kW and

with 500Nm of torque available at

just 2000rpm it is a powerhouse,

easily on a par with all of its competitors.

Drive is harnessed through a

six-speed automatic transmission.

A manual is available, but it won’t

compete with the auto in terms of

sales figures.

Shifts are smooth and the

gearing is such that it provides

relaxed motoring at highway

speed along with the ratios needed

for slow speed, off-the-seal

travel.

Backing up that theory is the

fitment of a true low ratio transfer

box, it is manipulated electronically

by a console-mounted

dial switch, at the driver’s command.

It’s fair to say I didn’t take the

Z71 off-road. When Holden

launched the new series, it

included a traction-challenging

off-road excursion in North

Canterbury. I felt I didn’t need

to replicate that given all vehicles

completed the undulating

and muddy hill sections without

drama.

Instead, I spent most of my

time with the Z71 at highway

speed and my regular commute.

In those conditions it seems more

car-like that ute-like. Sure, there

is a lot of bulk to manoeuvre in

close confine situations, but it’s

no worse than any other vehicle

of its type. And if you take into

account the number which are

being sold, buyers quite obviously

don’t rate that as a challenge.

On the open road, the engine

turns over slowly at 1550rpm

at 100km/h in top gear. At that

speed it returns a 6.2-litre per

100km (46mpg) instantaneous

fuel usage figure, that accounted

for an 9.4l/100km (30mpg) average

figure during my time with

the ute. That correlates well with

the 8.7l/100km (32mpg) figure

Holden claims for a combined

cycle average.

Road and wind noise are both

kept to a minimum, and the

Colorado, as a series, imparts

a smooth ride. Of course, it is

better with a bit of weight in the

back, but the reality is the loadbearing

suspension is absorbent

and the cab doesn’t jiggle unnecessarily

on uneven surfaces.

That’s an area where local

research and development pays

dividends. Holden Australia places

a huge emphasis on developing

vehicles for down under conditions

and it certainly shows in

Colorado. The ride is acceptable

and the entire in-cabin experience

is comfortable.

I guess, it would need to be. The

Z71 isn’t cheap at $66,990, but for

that money you do get a lot of kit.

Even though the Z71’s flashy

bits disguise its traditional ute

look, make no mistake, it is still

the quintessential Colorado

which has carved out a huge reputation

as a tough, go-anywhere

worker.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

A family of Triumphs

Bob Humm grew up around old cars, forming an

interest he passed onto his sons.

This penchant is reflected in the three

generation connection the family has had

with the Vintage Car Club (beginning with

Bob’s father). They also like classic cars, with

Bob and son Graeme both owning Triumph

2.5’s.

Bob and Esme purchased their 1977

Triumph after seeing it at a McLeans Island

Swap Meet.

“Bob was about to have his hip replaced

and wanted a car that would be easier to get

into than the sports car we had,” explains

Esme.

While they had never driven a Triumph,

they thought it looked rather stylish.

“The 2.5 was pretty smart in its day,”

says Bob. “The interior was a poor man’s

Rolls-Royce and with the independent rear

suspension it’s easy to drive with no need to

change gears all the time, to the point where

you can often drive round a corner in the

same gear.”

The Triumph has a manual gearbox with

an overdrive in third and fourth. This makes

it more economical. It is also quieter with a

relaxed comfortable drive though their road

handling or cornering capabilities are not

that of a newer car.

Graeme who had a Jowett handed down

to him by Bob, wanted a car that was less

draughty in winter. He saw his 1974 Triumph

2.5 advertised in Nelson so flew up to see it,

making the purchase and driving it home.

When he purchased his 1977 Triumph

Spitfire, it had been sitting unused for a few

years and needed work on the suspension

through to the engine and clutch. It took

around a month of full-time labour to

have the car running smoothly again.

Graeme says the Spitfire, which has a

1500cc engine is light and quite nippy.

The Spitfire 1500 was produced from

1974 to 1980 and was the last model in

the series to roll off the production line.

Both the Mark I (1962-1964) and Mark II

(1964-1967) had an 1147cc engine while

the Mark III (1967-1970) and Mark IV

(1970-1974) had a 1396cc engine.

Graeme finds the Spitfire economical

to run, getting about 12km to the litre

around town and 13-14km on a long

trip. He and Bob say the 2.5 is slightly

less economical at about 11km around

town and nearer 13km per litre on a

They have found the Triumphs

reliable vehicles though Bob and

Esme, who have taken their car on

many rallies, once had to call on

Graeme to tow them up the Arthur’s

Pass Viaduct due to a fuel blockage.

Given the family’s long-term love of

old vehicles, the Triumphs are likely

to be in the family for some time yet.

“We’ll be keeping our Triumph

while we still have an interest in

classic cars,” says Esme.

“Mine will be passed on to my

boys,” adds Graeme.

Gardening

What to grow

near fruit trees

The fascinating world of companion plants is

one to explore. Rebecca Lees writes about

how they can give your fruit trees a boost

PEACH COMRADE: Tansy

planted with ‘blackboy’

peach tree. Tansy deters

a raft of harmful flying

insects and is an excellent

companion for the fruit

garden.

COMPANION PLANTING is one

of the most enjoyable things you can

do in the fruit garden, especially if

you begin with a blank canvas.

Thanks to the interplanting of a

host of companion plants under and

around fruit trees, dull lifeless soil

over time becomes full of organic

matter, and alive with beneficial

creatures crawling amongst it. The

soil, now more fertile and robust,

can aid the trees’ growth and access

to nutrients, as well as increase

the ability for the trees (and wider

garden area) to keep pests and

disease in check.

Companions aren’t a magic wand,

there are plenty of other tasks a

gardener undertakes to ensure fruit

trees are healthy and productive, but

they’re a great tool and one I’ll never

go without.

How does it work?

Companion plants can:

•Lure pests to them and in turn

help keep those pests away from

other susceptible plants.

•Confuse pests by disturbing the

visual and chemical attributes that

help pests find host plants.

•Attract predatory insects, which

then naturally lower the pest count

in your garden.

Keep an eye out

If you’re particularly observant

you may witness companions

working their magic. You may

notice ladybirds, a predatory insect;

FRUIT FRIEND: Stinging nettle

attracts ladybirds, which eat

aphids.

or spot a praying mantis leaping

out, catching and devouring a

white butterfly. As your companion

plants become established, it’s really

exciting to see these things unfold in

your garden.

Bees

Planting to encourage bees and

other pollinators into the garden

helps with fruit-tree pollination. Try

to plant those which flower around

the same time your fruit trees

blossom. Some plants bees enjoy

(which also benefit the fruit garden)

include borage, rosemary, lemon

balm, basil, coriander, thyme and

lavender.

Comfrey

An outstanding companion plant

for fruit trees, comfrey brings up

nutrients from deep down in the

subsoil and releases them as the

leaves die back. I plant it around all

my fruit trees. It will grow from a

tiny piece of root – making it easy to

propagate, but difficult to get rid of

once you have it.

Phacelia

I sprinkle phacelia seeds wherever

there is a space in my garden. The

flowers are rich in nectar, and the

plant helps boost populations of

predatory insects.

Don’t plant grass

Many orchard floors are covered

in grass, with fruit trees, of all the

same type, neatly planted in straight

rows. This may seem pleasing to the

eye, but it is a field day for pests, and

can make it difficult for fruit trees to

grow well. Couch grass, for instance,

releases a growth inhibitor via its

roots, and this can slow or even

stunt the growth of many fruit trees.

When you must plant grass

Mix things up a bit to add

diversity and other benefits. You

could include nitrogen-fixing

clovers, lucerne, dandelions,

mustard, and allow nettles to grow

also. Stinging nettle allowed to grow

around fruit trees helps with fruit

tree health in many ways, including

being a host to predatory insects.

To attract predators

There are many plants which

attracts predators to the garden,

some to try include: Flowering

parsnips, fennel, carraway, hyssop,

lemon balm and dill. Let all of these

plants flower.

Get ready for

garlic!

Fresh home-grown garlic cannot be beaten! It is so juicy and

packed with flavour, and it is so simple to grow yourself!

When deciding where to plant, you will need to choose an

area that doesn’t get too wet, as garlic will tend to rot if it

is in too much water for long periods of time. Garlic grows

best in soil that is well dug over and has good drainage, so

make sure you are aware of this when choosing the spot.

It is so important to make sure that you have a healthy

growing environment to allow the plant to thrive. If you

have an overly clay soil you will need to add gypsum clay

breaker to help resolve this. Paired with organic compost,

your soil will be in great shape in no time!

If your garden beds are prone to

flooding in winter, opt for a raised

bed, planter box or pot. Wherever

you decide to plant, the mix you

use needs to be full of organic

matter and nutrition. Organic

compost, blood and bone, chicken

manure pellets and sheep pellets

are all excellent for this. These

products will supply the soil with a

good boost of nitrogen, phosphorus

and potassium – all essential

nutrients for garlic. Prepare your

gardens now, so the soil is ready to

go when you plant the cloves.

30 hours FREE ECE

Not only do children get a wonderful educational start at Giggles

and Scribbles, now it’s even easier on the pocket.

All children three years or older can now learn and play at the

childcare centre for up to 30 hours per week for free*.

“We understand that for some families money can be tight,

at Giggles and Scribbles we believe in equality of education -

giving all children more access to high quality early childhood

education” says Giggles and Scribbles director and owner

Sonya Cookeson.

“The centre has been open for over a year now and the

wonderful support that we have had from the local community

means that we are now in a position to give a little bit back”.

“We know how hard it can be for working families and It’s

always been important to me that all children have equal

access to a high quality early childhood education.”

At Giggles and Scribbles they believe that their job is not just to

prepare children intellectually for school but also, and perhaps

more importantly, to develop them emotionally and socially.

They aim to work alongside families to help develop and

instil solid moral values that will prepare children to be kind,

thoughtful and decent human beings.

problems. At Giggles and Scribbles

they incorporate learning into a fun and

interactive programme to keep children’s

attention and make learning memorable.

They also facilitate a highly acclaimed Transition to School

programme for children over 4 years of age. This programme

is run in house by primary trained teachers.

We need critical thinkers - children who can think outside of

the box. At Giggles and Scribbles they believe it’s important to

provide a balance of equipment and resources that challenge

the thought process of children. Some of the equipment and

resources have a specific and intentional outcome. Children

gain a sense of achievement and accomplishment from

completing the activity, progressing their learning forward.

n If your family would like to learn more about Giggles

and Scribbles or their FREE 30 hour ECE offer, then contact

Giggles and Scribbles on 03 325 3350.

*Some terms and conditions apply to the 30 hours free ECE offer, please

contact the centre for details.

Giggles and Scribbles philosophy focuses on providing

children with the skills and tools to play with and alongside

other children; to be able to make friends and retain them,

valuing the enrichment of friendships. They believe in the value

of teaching children to be kind, empathic and to have the ability

to self-regulate their emotions. Teachers focus on grace and

courtesy, role modelling, respect and good manners.

They weave values such as courage, perseverance,

independence and inclusiveness into their curriculum,

believing them to be as equally

important as providing a varied,

stimulating and well prepared

learning environment.

Great emphasis is placed on

grace and courtesy lessons,

as well as providing children

with the tools to be able to learn

important preparation for school

skills such as learning the

alphabet or solving basic math

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Is it time to move, build,

renovate or revisit your

financial position?

There is a lot to think about when looking to

finance a home. Whether it is your first home, next

home, an investment or a commercial property, it can

be helpful to seek advice from a financial professional

so you secure the best deal available.

Knowing all the options before you start will help

to take away the stress associated with making such

a major decision. However, acquiring finance when

building a new home, or renovating an existing one,

can present its challenges. From determining who

to seek finance from to interpreting the forms and

providing the information required by a lender, there

can be frustrations.

Getting assistance from an expert who will guide

you through the process and broker a loan agreement

with a financial institution, can make the whole

process easier and a lot more straightforward.

Nathan Miglani, Mortgage Advisor at Loan Market

is a specialist in the field of finance. He knows the

options available. Nathan helps people

on a daily basis, through the process of

sorting out their finance, from start to

finish.

“In Canterbury, there’s a lot going on at

present. It includes building, renovating,

repairing, and development work, much of

which needs financial assistance,” explains

Nathan. “I aim to secure the best financial

package possible so my clients have the

finances they need to achieve their goals.”

Nathan has assisted many first home

buyers through the process of drawing

on their KiwiSaver and applying for a

Housing NZ Home Start grant which he

says is a great way to get into the property

market.

Nathan will also advise on the Reserve

Bank loan to value ratio restrictions, and

the amount of deposit required, which in

some cases can be lower.

With considerable experience in the

finance industry, Nathan has built up a

solid base of contacts. He has access to all the major

trading banks and recognised non-bank lenders. This

means that he can source loan funds suitable for each

situation.

“I can assist with all types of finance, for existing

and new residential builds, bare land, lifestyle blocks,

business finance, a commercial building or an ‘as is

where is’ property,” advises Nathan.

Nathan is also available to review clients’ existing

mortgage arrangements with a view to improving

their loan structure and interest rate payments, so

they save money and are able to reduce their debt

faster.

With interest rates currently at a low level, now is a

good time to sit down with a financial expert, to see

how you can save money and reduce your debt faster.

Nathan can be contacted for a no obligation,

confidential and no cost review consultation on

021 02120555.

Nathan assists first home buyers with

accessing KiwiSaver for their first home.

Making the

most of

show home

viewing

Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for

features and fittings to put into a new home. It can also be helpful

for getting a spatial feel for other aspects of a house design.

Before heading out for a day’s

viewing, conduct an internet search.

identify the locations of show home

villages and the types and sizes of the

various building company’s homes on

display, noting down the square metre

size of each home.

if wanting a high end, architectural

design, focus on the larger homes that

have desirable design features. if at the

entry or middle level of the market,

earmark homes that fit this taking in

other show homes for extra ideas.

allow sufficient time when visiting each

show home, asking for a floor plan that

has room sizes before walking through.

Check also the floor to ceiling height

of the rooms and consider how this feels

and whether you prefer a cosier feel with

the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or

more spaciousness created with a higher

stud or exposed ceiling beams.

if doors and windows are taller than

Retail Investment

normal, weigh their effect in creating

a more luxurious and spacious feel,

against potential inconvenience for small

children, cleaning and maintenance.

on entering each room, take account of

how much furniture is in each room and

whether there is sufficient space for the

furniture you will have in the room and

the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look

too, at storage capacity throughout the

home and whether this is adequate.

in the living areas, consider whether a

lounge separated from the family living

room or a true open plan kitchen, dining,

living/lounge area is preferable, and

compare internal kitchens with those that

have natural light.

Look too at the layout of the kitchen:

whether to have an island sink or

breakfast bar where a newspaper can be

read, and children can sit and draw or

complete homework; the positioning of

appliances; and how important having a

pantry is.

for the little rooms, equate space

and features desired with that needed,

especially if the budget needs to be

sharp. it might be nice to have a large

walk-in shower with double shower

heads but is this just fanciful and will

the extra cleaning annoy you long term.

a laundry in the garage is also more

economical though a separate laundry

may be handier.

Bring the garage size into the equation

also. as these vary considerably, assess

the actual measurements of each garage

viewed comparing this with the space

needed for your motor vehicles and other

Rolleston

items to be stored there. if a good number

of toys will be housed there, it may be

sensible to increase the size of this area of

the home.

By imagining what you need, want and

will have in your new home, you will be in

a better position to confidently choose a

design that works for you.

Marketing your property –

what does it mean?

Marketing a property is

more than presentation

and advertising.

Conceptually, marketing is

identifying what prospective buyers

are looking for then providing this. For

example, larger homes and sections

may appeal more to families. Young

couples starting out, generally have

tight budgets leading them to smaller

properties, while older people may be

looking to downsize.

Brand new has a particular appeal

however there will always be a market

for established homes. Having a

picture in your mind of the type of

buyer will help in determining the

features to emphasise.

If repairs and maintenance need

to be carried out before putting the

property on the market, seek the

advice of a real estate agent. They

can advise on what tasks are worth

completing and what might be

unnecessary expense.

Installing a new kitchen or changing

the carpet may lift the house but will

the expense be recouped in the sale

price? On the other hand, modernising

an outdated kitchen or bathroom

could make a huge difference to

the look of the place. Avoid going

overboard unless the capital value of

properties in the area justifies this.

Real estate agents are in contact with

prospective buyers so aware of what

they are looking for. Draw on their

expertise and advice to help make the

most of the selling opportunity.

Establishing a relevant and fair price

for a property is important. Most

agents calculate this based on the price

properties in the area have sold for,

and what a particular property has to

offer. A unique or exceptional property

may justify a higher price, though

run-down properties can gain more

than they appear to merit. This might

be due to the area or other factors that

suggest a good investment.

When promoting a property, mix it

up and be creative so your property

stands out from the rest. TradeMe

is a must; checked by most people

looking to buy. Present the features the

property offers as benefits to potential

buyers.

Erect a sign outside the property.

People stop and look at photographs

and this might spark sufficient

interest for them to visit an open

home. Spending a fortune on massive

advertising campaigns in every media

might seem a way to attract potential

buyers but may be an unnecessary

expense without the return. A better

philosophy could be a little often.

This will depend on the value of the

property, your budget and how best to

reach target buyers.

Buyer perception is also significant.

For example, properties that sit for a

while can become stale. Resting the

property by taking it off the market for

a short time, then relisting perhaps in

spring or when sales in the area appear

to lift a little, can make a difference.

However, if a property does not sell

immediately there is no need for panic

or dropping the price. It may simply be

that the right buyer has not yet come

along. If the mix is right your property

will sell.

If a property does not sell

immediately there is no need for

panic or dropping the price.
