IT IS a bit of a sporting edition

of Selwyn Times this week.

The UC Championships, the

schoolboy rugby competition,

started at the weekend and

Lincoln Combined got off to a

great start against city boys of St

Bede’s College (page 12). Lincoln

Combined had had a rough

season last year, with just one

win, but lets hope the lads can

keep up the momentum as they

head to Nelson this weekend.

West Melton’s Ben Taylor has

had a cracker year. Not only has

he been part of the winning St

Andrew’s College Maadi Cup

squad, but now he has been

named in the national junior

rowing team (page 13).

Finally, sports photographer

Karen Casey was at the combined

country rugby competition

match up of Lincoln v Rakaia at

the weekend. See all the action

Strong support for RSA plans


• By Tom Doudney and Georgia


PLANS FOR a new Returned

and Services Association to

be established in Rolleston

have received a strong wave of

support from members at the

Templeton RSA.

It is proposed for a new RSA

to be established, co-locating the

Templeton RSA and the Regi-


mental History Centre based at

Burnham Military Camp.

At a special general meeting

held with the Templeton RSA

on Sunday, 63 members voted

for the organisation to move to

Rolleston while three members

voted against the proposal.

Templeton RSA president

John Rae said while plans for the


new RSA is the early stages,

the organisation is excited for

the move.

“We do hear of RSAs closing

throughout the country and

to have one opening I think is

something you can be proud of,”

he said.

Mr Rae said the new

Tasty Bites

relationship between the

history centre and RSA will

be positive not only for the

two organisations but for the

community in Rolleston.

NEW PLANS: Regimental History Centre chairman David

Clarkson said the centre would like to move out of the

Burnham Military Camp so it is more accessible to the



The Regimental History

Centre, which is a sub group

of the Canterbury Regiment

Association displays a

significant collection of South

Island military history.

Items on display at the

centre includes replicas of

New Zealand soldier Charles

Upham’s medals and a bass

drum that went ashore at

Gallipoli in 1915 containing

shell dressings applied to the

wounds of soldiers.

Regimental History Centre

chairman David Clarkson said

the centre would like to move

out of the military camp so it is

more accessible to the public.

“There are security issues and

it takes quite a bit of effort to get

people into the camp,” he said.

Mr Clarkson said if people

want to come see the displays

they have to go through the

camp’s guard house, give proof

of their identity and have people

monitor them while they are on


He said Rolleston would be

a good place for the centre due

to its population base and a

number of people who live in

the area are associated to the

military camp.

“We would be quite happy to

be on a site which is associated

with the RSA . . . it is like

us, an integral part of the

community and with a military

background,” he said.

A location for the RSA is still

yet to be decided on.

In Brief


A group of youths started a

fire in a Rolleston school on

Thursday night. Emergency

services were called to

Clearview Primary on

Broadlands Dr at about 9.45pm

and found a fire near the fence

about 2x2m big. When police

arrived the group ran. They

conducted an area search but

didn’t find any of the youths.

“The caretaker has said this is

an ongoing problem,” Sergeant

Alex Pickover said.


Police are looking for a person

who shone a laser into a

southbound flight on Thursday

night. Air traffic control

contacted the Rolleston police

to report the laser strike that

happened between 6.30-7pm.

The Mt Cook Airline flight was

at about 8000ft when there was

a brief strike in the cockpit,

but it did not affect the flight.

Sergeant Alex Pickover said it is

believed the offender who shone

the laser could have been near

Birdlings Flat or Lake Ellesmere

and police searched the area but

didn’t find anyone. If you have

any information phone

363 7400 or anonymously

through Crimestoppers on

Freedom camping report

•From page 1

Cr Watson said: “(Christchurch

City Council) took a

which was to effectively ban all

Last year, the Christchurch

City Council changed its

communicating to the campers

about etiquette.

District councillor Jeff Bland

said he would like to see a push

by central Government on

He said while he doesn’t have

Gym instructor gets

HIGH ACHIEVER: Gym instructor Linda Miratana was

recognised with two awards from the New Zealand Exercise

Industry last year.


With 23 years of working as a gym instructor under her belt, Linda Miratana has

transformed the Lincoln Event Centre into a popular place for group gym classes.

Georgia O’Connor-Harding spoke to her about what brought her to Lincoln

What does your job involve at

the Lincoln Event Centre?

I am the assistant manager

here. I have been in that role

for three years. I did work here

prior to that just part-time, but

then took on the full-time role

as assistant manager. I teach

group fitness and manage the

group instructors here. I am the

group fitness manager in both

centres in Rolleston and Lincoln.

I am often here first thing in

the morning for my day job and

I am often here at nighttime

teaching classes too. I just need a

bed at my desk and I will be fine.

What has kept you here so


It is such a great community.

After working here I moved here

because I loved it so much. I

used to live in Templeton. I live

just two minutes away, which

can be good and bad because

sometimes I am the person on


What was it like to win

the group exercise freestyle

instructor of the year and

people’s choice award at the

New Zealand Exercise Industry

Awards last year?

That was fantastic, so exciting

for me. I have been teaching

for 23 years and it was really

nice to be recognised. Without

me knowing they sent a person

into my classes and they did

the whole class then they had to

report back. It was a really nice

feeling, but I stay grounded because

I love doing it more than

anything else.

Do you have rough days?

How do you push yourself


You play your music and that

usually gives you a lift. There

may just be the odd day where

you feel tired but, honestly, as

soon as you get that music going

it gives you a boost. Plus the people

– I always look at the people

and think these people have

come here for me tonight. They

can go to any instructor but they

chose to come here to my class.

Do you have any specific

way to get people involved in


I will talk to people and reassure

them. There are a couple

of ladies in their 70s as well as

a 21-year-old and all ages in

between in my classes. I have all

different levels of fitness. You

can go in the back, hide in the

corner and give them lots of

options to make it easier. Two

months down the track people

in our beginners classes are addicted


What are your favourite

classes to do?

Definitely not dance because

I can’t. I am useless. Yoga I need

to do more of but don’t. I tend to

like classes more intense. Spin

and pump are my favourite.

They are hard but give you good

results. It was pump I got awards

for. I have done a couple of

presentations, such as the FITEX

(conference for the New Zealand

fitness and exercise industry)

last year. I presented a workshop

on pump, which is the first time

I have done that and I have applied

to do it again this year as

PAUL WILLIAMS has never shied away

from taking on the sporting world in

spite of only having one able arm.

“It is an advantage, I think, because it

makes you want to beat able-body people,”

he said.

That is exactly what the Rolleston

resident did recently by winning the lawn

bowls champion of champions men’s

colts singles against Colin Stoddart, of

Halswell, 21-15.

He said it was good to get a Canterbury

title under his belt so early in his career.

Williams, 54, was born without his left

arm. He said doctors had never been able

to determine why.

“It was around the time of the drug

thalidomide, but my mother did not

think she took the sickness pills. They

could never pin-point what caused it,” he


Williams first joined the West Melton

Bowling Club about two years ago after

sustaining injuries from over-using his

arm playing golf.

Having always had a passion for sports,

he first began playing soccer at the age of

five before delving into rugby, badminton

and squash.

After his first win, Williams will now

take a break with the lawn bowling

season not set to start up again until

Maadi Cup stars make national team


• By Andrew King

THEY TOOK on the best in the

country, now Ben Taylor, of West

Melton, and Thomas Russel, of St

Albans, will take on the world.

The duo have been named in the

national junior rowing team.

The two 17-year-old St Andrew’s

College students were a part of

the winning Maadi Cup squad

which not only brought back

the top prize for the first time

in the college’s history, but the

Springbok Shield as well.

They will row in the four

coxless at the junior world

rowing championships in Trakai,

Lithuania, from August 2-6.

Rowing is in Taylor’s blood,

the last time the school raised

the shield was when his father,

Andrew, was in the boat 34 years


Now he has been named in the

national squad, he said he has one

up on his father.

“He is really supportive, really

interested and completely stoked

that I have made the team,” he


Russel made the team last year

and said he was nervous going

into the trials, but once he got on

the water he just got stuck into his


“I was more shocked about

making it the year before, but I am

still extremely happy to back that

up,” he said.

Taylor and Russel have been in

the boat together for the past four

years and both agree having each

other there really pushes them to

perform better.

“You see each other on the water

but then spend a bit more time

together out of it as well, and that

means we really want to push for

each other,” Russel said.

Taylor said he has to give credit

to coach Dale Maher, who has

been the “perfect finishing” coach.

“He won seven jubilee cups in

his eight years while coaching

the Rangi Ruru Girls’ eight, so he

knows his stuff,” Taylor said.

Both said they are incredibly

proud to be able to represent their

country in a sport they love.

The effective use of low level laser

treatment for assisting in the healing

of deep tissue and joint problems has

been used for more than 40 years.

This treatment, which uses photo

stimulation of mitochondria in cells,

is able to penetrate into the site of

injury to promote healing and reduce

inflammation – relaxing muscles and

reducing pain.

Southern Chiropractic principal

chiropractor Andre Grob has seen

how the non-invasive treatment has

resulted in impressive results for his


“I attended the World Congress

conference on lower back pain in

Singapore last year where they

reinforced the use of low level laser

treatment on lower back pain.

“It was great to confirm the

technology I have been treating

my patients with has been highly

researched with clinical studies

showing the positive effect on acute

and chronic musculoskeletal pain.”

The treatment, which only takes 15

to 20 minutes, is especially effective

associated with arthritis, neck and

lower back pain. It is approved by

the FDA and Meta analysis by the

Lancet Medical Journal also endorses

the treatment saying it can reduce

pain intensity, disability and the

reoccurrence of pain.

Andre can also provide other

treatments including adjustments,

exercises, stretches and muscle

therapy – to readjust the body or

help it heal from conditions that are

physical in origin.

These can include problems such

as back pain, muscle spasms,

headaches and poor posture.

What you may not know is that it

is also completely appropriate to

receive chiropractic care even though

you may not have symptoms. Unlike

standard medical doctors who you

visit when you have symptoms that

need to be treated, chiropractors

offer adjustments to improve spinal

alignment and overall wellbeing –

and can prevent the pain or other

symptoms even starting.

Going to a chiropractor is much the

same as going to the dentist or gym

gained outstanding results. If you are

experiencing back or neck pain or feel

that treatment may be of benefit to

you please give me a call.”

ACC recognises chiropractors as

primary health care specialists when

it comes to spinal care so you do not

Recognising the Early

Signs of Osteoporosis

By Cath King, Nutritionist at Osteohealth NZ

How do we know whether our bones are healthy or not? We can’t see them like

we can our skin, or listen to them like the heart or lungs. They feel strong through

our flesh. But are they really? Bone density scans are a way to look inside bone,

and see how dense or strong they are, but we rarely get a bone density test until

after menopause, when it might be too late.

Studies show that only 12 percent of

people with osteoporosis have had a bone

mineral density (BMD) scan, the most

reliable diagnostic test for osteoporosis. This

is likely due to a lack of awareness among

middle-aged and older women and their

physicians about the risk of osteoporosis.

Some early signs that may indicate bone

loss are:

• Not getting much sun exposure

• Difficulty getting up from a chair without

using your arms to push

• Joint or muscle aches

• A resting pulse greater than 80 beats per


• Height loss

• Increasing stooping (curvature of the


• Receding gums

• Decreased grip strength

• Weak and brittle fingernails

• Cramps, muscle aches

• Low overall fitness

If you have risk factors for osteoporosis –

meaning you’re a woman, postmenopausal,

slight build, take medication or you’re

vitamin D-deficient, among others – don’t

wait until you have symptoms to get

screened. Unfortunately, bone loss, leading

to osteoporosis, often occurs without

any noticeable symptoms, so by the time

you have a fracture, feel pain, or develop

curvature of the spine, osteoporosis may

already be present.

Luckily, if you identify bone loss early,

you can take steps to reduce your risk of


Bone Mineral Density testing will be

available at Lincoln Rec Centre (Lincoln

University) on Friday 19th May.

Paws for Reading is here

Local dogs and their owners are working with Selwyn District

Libraries to help children to improve their reading skills.

Paws for Reading is a new programme being launched in May.

The programme is designed to provide an opportunity for children

who are not confident reading aloud or who need to develop their

reading skills to read to a friendly dog for fifteen minutes each week.

“We are excited about this new programme. Similar programmes

overseas and in New Zealand have been shown to assist most

children to improve their reading fluency and confidence,” says

Selwyn Libraries Manager Vicki Carlyon.

The dogs being used in the programme are carefully selected by the

Selwyn Dog Training Club to be suitable to work with children. The

sessions are being trialled during term two at all local libraries and

are open to primary school children. Sessions are free but booking

is required – to book a place please visit

or contact your local library.

Recycle your child’s car seat

A recycling programme for expired or damaged car seats is currently operating in Selwyn.

Until June 2017 the Council is offering a collection point at Rolleston and subsidising the processing

cost. You can take unwanted car seats to the Pines Resource Recovery Park for a small $5 charge.

The SeatSmart recycling programme can help reduce the amount of recyclable materials going to

landfill and remove expired seats from circulation which improves road safety.

The seats are dismantled through Department of Corrections community work programmes which provide

opportunities for offenders to learn new skills and contribute to the community. The recovered plastic is

recycled into products for the building industry, metal parts are taken to metal recyclers, and the harnesses

will be used by Karkt NZ and The Green Collective who make handmade bags from recycled items.

Booster and convertible seats can be recycled through the recycling programme, along with capsules,

but polystyrene seats are not part of the programme.

Selwyn School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler says all car seats have an expiry date on

them and over time seats can be damaged from UV light, heat, general wear and tear or in a crash.

Parents can find information about how to check their seat’s expiry date at Locally,

the Council has trained a number of volunteers as child restraint technicians and they can check car seat

safety and install seats for free - see 'Selwyn Car Seat Champions' on Facebook for details.

“The Council is pleased to be able to partner

with SeatSmart to help reduce the amount of

car seats going to landfill. To help make the

program a success we are asking people to

remove and dispose of the fabric seat covers

before bringing them in,” says Selwyn District

Council Solid Waste Manager Andrew Boyd.

The Pines Resource Recovery Park is located

at 183 Burnham School Road and is open

Monday to Fridays, 9am-4.30pm, and from

10am-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays. For

more information about SeatSmart contact

On the roads this week

Road resurfacing will take place on Dalethorpe 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.

Road widening – Jones Road

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. This work is occurring

now in order to be completed prior to the NZ Transport Agency

starting work on a new Motorway interchange at Weedons Ross

Road. Maddisons Road is suggested as an alternative route to

Jones Road at peak times.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension

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

Fresh driveline for

Peugeot 2008

• By Ross Kiddie

I’M A firm believer in the

two-wheel-drive sport

utility vehicle market.

The reason being is that

most SUV buyers have no

intention of taking their

cars/wagons into a loose

surface environment, there

is mostly little need for


A lot of manufacturers

are into that concept and

they are increasing the

number of 2WD SUVs.

Peugeot has just launched a

new crossover/SUV/wagon

– the 2008. While its concept

has been around for

a few years, the newcomer

has a fresh driveline and a

fairly hefty upgrade.

Loosely based around

the 208 platform, the 2008

is an SUV of mini proportions

at just over 4m, but it

has a practical interior that

is capable of transporting

awkward loads with adaptable

and versatile rear seat


It is also a comfortable

car for four adults, it’s a bit

of squeeze width-wise for

three adults in the rear but

there’s no shortage of head

or leg room, and the 2008

is clever in the way it translates

its limited space into

occupant comfort.

The 2008 lands here in

two levels, $34,990 will get

you into the Allure, an extra

$2000 will buy what Peugeot

describes as the GT-Line, it

gets a wealth of sporty trim

accents, bigger wheels (17in)

and a higher spec including

a clever grip control system.

Effectively, it is an advanced

traction and stability control

programme that also allows

the 2008 to tackle those offthe-seal

situations that arise

from time to time, but bearing

in mind cross-country

travel is limited.

Under the bonnet is a

new turbocharged, threecylinder

engine and sixspeed

transmission which

is finding its way across

Peugeot and Citroen lineups.

I’ve encountered

this unit in other Peugeot

product and it is an engine

which punches well above

its weight, you have to discard

the notion of it being

small, it is a strong, capable

PEUGEOT 2008: Sport utility vehicle of mini proportions.

power plant which thrills

with its honesty.

Peugeot rates the 1192cc

unit at a healthy 81kW and

205Nm. Not only are they

high outputs for engine

size, it’s the area where the

power is developed that

is most interesting. Peak

power comes in at just

5500rpm and maximum

torque is available from

1500rpm, both low in the

rev band and that is what

you need in all engines,

the ability to haul from low

revolutions. Boost from the

turbocharger is also constant,

there is little lag at

any point.

• Price – Peugeot

2008, $36,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4159mm;

width, 1829mm;

height, 1556mm

• Configuration –

Three-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,


81kW, 205Nm, sixspeed


• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10.3sec

• Fuel usage –


If you also add in the

benefit of a six-speed

automatic, there’s never a

point where you think the

gearing and engine output

aren’t matched, the driveline

is fluid and responsive.

Peugeot also list a 1280kg

kerb weight for the 2008,

that’s quite light, offering

a healthy power-to-weight


The gearing has been

structured so that there

is reasonable acceleration

to highway speed with

TECHNOLOGY: Satellite navigation is fitted to the

higher grade variant of the Peugeot 2008.

a tallish top gear so that

the engine is relaxed at

100km/h, turning over

slowly at 2000rpm.

At that speed the engine

is sipping fuel at the rate of

just five-litres per 100km

(56mpg), that promoted a

7.2l/100km (39mpg) average

during my time behind

the wheel. These are satisfactory

figures but are a

little distant to Peugeot’s

4.8l/100km (58mpg)

combined cycle claim,

although my driving style

doesn’t augur well for fuel


On the subject of figures,

the 2008 is lively enough,

it will reach 100km/h from

a standstill in just over

10sec and will complete a

highway overtake in 6.9sec

(80km/h to 120km/h).

Peugeot has always had

a reputation for ride/handling

quality and that has

been engineered into the

2008. It has a compliant,

moderately-firmed ride

with a handling feel that

is moderately sporty. The

chassis isn’t disturbed by

mid-corner bumps or road

deviations, the suspension

does a good job of keeping

body balance.

Providing the grip are

205/50 Good Year tyres,

according to the casing they

are worded all season and

during my time with the

test car they were certainly

put to the test on wet surfaces,

heavy rain lowered

grip levels substantially.

Nevertheless, the entire

car felt secured to the

road and steering feel is

another Peugeot hallmark,

the 2008 as a package constantly

feels controlled and


The latter of course is

five-star rated and sits

beside a healthy level of

specification, major features

include satellite navigation,

touch screen infotainment,

cruise control

and speed limiter and high

quality trim materials.

The new 2008 is an

example of a good car

made better, the new driveline

is certainly a case of

less is more.

It’s the Season of the Jacket

Our up and down weather at the moment makes it difficult to dress

so a jacket that can be left on is a practical choice.

Both leather and faux leather jackets are ultra popular right now

and are available in a range of neutrals with brown being a

new in-vogue colour this season. Taupes, tans, stone, beige

navy and black are also available.

We have pictured the Coalition LA faux

leather jacket in Coffee colourway

($199) on our seated mannequin. This

colour is a neutral which will go with

almost everything and can be

a softer alternative to black.

This mannequin is also

sporting the on trend

Quay sunnies which

are a must have this

season ($69.90).

Another faux leather

option is the stylish

Airlie biker jacket

with rose gold zips

($185.95). Rose gold is hugely

popular right now so if you

are amongst those of us

addicted to this colour,

then this is your go-to

jacket. This is a fitted

style which gives plenty of

shape so is very flattering over

dresses or with pants and jeans.

Airlie, a new Australian label, also has the beautiful

misty grey faux suede jacket with drapey lapels

($165.95). This is another style that can be left on as

it has stretch and is comfortable and looks amazing

contrasting with navy or black underneath.

Another new jacket shape which has become very

popular is the bomber. This shape can a little more

casual and is comfortable and easy to wear. A

bomber jacket can also be worn with jeans, pants or

with skirts and dresses so is a versatile addition to the


We have pictured the faux leather

Airlie bomber in stunning pink

($165.95) over a navy and

white Elm striped dress


If vibrant colours are

you , we have found

a beautiful bright

orange jacket in ultra

cosy 100 % wool by

High Style ($189). This

jacket looks great left

undone but adds more

shape if worn zipped up

to bring in the waistline.

There are many more

jackets available but this

selection gives a little taster of

what’s available now in store at

Viva la Moda. See you soon.

Great autumn

Being productive in the garden is as much about growing

as it is about finishing crops, and putting all good things

to use year-round. Diana Noonan provides a few tip on

how to use your greenhouse over the autumn months

UNDER COVER: Pumpkins need to be ‘cured’ if they are

to keep well over winter. The greenhouse is the perfect

place to use for this.

Be inspired by

our great range

of quality trees

and shrubs.

Pamper your potatoes

In my autumn, there may well be

no warm, dry periods of little rain.

Thank goodness for my greenhouse,

which I press into service for potato


If you decide to use your

greenhouse for this purpose, there

are one or two things to bear in

mind. The greening of potatoes

is caused by four factors: light

quality (how bright the light is),

the duration during which the

tubers are exposed to light, the

temperature they are exposed to,

and the variety of potato (some have

thicker skins than others). When I

dry my potatoes in the greenhouse,

I minimise the time the harvest

is exposed to the light (leaving

them in the light for no more

than two days and turning them a

couple of times a day to hurry the

process). I leave the greenhouse

door and vents open to lower the

temperature, and I choose a day

with light cloud rather than bright

sun for the harvest. Obviously, even

if your greenhouse is vermin proof,

it is unwise to store the potatoes

in it because temperatures will be

warmer than desirable, even over

winter. Potatoes should be stored

in a cool (1-4°C.), dark place with

moderate ventilation.

Greenhouses are the cure

Autumn may be ‘the season of

mellow fruitfulness’ according

to the poet Keats, but it’s also

the season when dampness is

creeping into the mornings and

late afternoons. All of which makes

curing pumpkins

and other cucurbits

a headache. Unless,

of course, you

have a greenhouse.

Pumpkins and their

relatives need to be

stored in a warm, dry

place for around four

weeks if they are to

store well into winter.

During the curing

process, the gourds’

skins harden, and any

minor blemishes heal

over, protecting the

flesh beneath. Curing

also helps immature

fruit to ripen and


Because curing

should ideally occur

at temperatures

between 27-29 deg C, greenhouses

provide the ideal place for it to

take place. I cure pumpkins, kumi

kumi and marrows on wooden

pallets placed on the floor of my

glasshouse. It’s fascinating to watch

the shells harden on the vegetables

and to see how they deepen in


Sun-dried decoration

Bright dried foods make for

pretty decorations in the kitchen,

whether stored in a jar or strung up

on threads of cotton or natural jute

string. As soon as the chillies in my

glasshouse are ripe (which is when

they have turned the mature colour

indicated on their seed packet or

plant label), I whip them off the

bush. While their stems are still

soft, I use a needle to thread them

onto cotton, spacing them slightly

apart from each other to encourage

ventilation, then hang them across

he roof of the greenhouse to dry.

As most of the plants are gone from

my greenhouse by now, humidity is

low and the chillies dry within a few

days or a week or two depending

on conditions. I also dry bunches

of herbs in the greenhouse, tying

their stems loosely, and placing

the bunches heads down in a

large paper bag hung high in the

structure (heat rises so the higher

they are hung the better). The bags

serve to catch the leaves (or seeds)

as they fall.

gardening without guesswork


I have moved into a new place that has a beautiful flower garden

that includes the likes of dahlias, chrysanthemums and roses.

What do I need to do to help them survive the winter?

At this time of year you will need

Answer: to cut back your chrysanthemums

and dahlias by about two thirds

once they have finished flowering. Make sure that when you are

cutting these back, you use sharp secateurs and do it on a fine,

dry day. To help protect them from the winter cold, add a layer of

bark mulch to the garden to keep them nice and snug through the

cooler months.

Your roses will also benefit from some mulch to protect them.

Organic compost dug through the soil will boost them as well.

As winter begins, this is a good time to prune them. Check out

the gardening advice section on our website for more information

on how to prune It

will also pay to give them a spray – head to your local garden

centre, they will point you in the right direction. The spray will help

to protect the plant’s new growth from winter frosts, as well as

protection from diseases. Please note that if you have rambling

roses, these are best pruned in summer.

Other maintenance in

the flower garden

Primulas, pansies and polyanthus will love a side dressing of

fertiliser to help see them through the winter. Make sure that you

clean up any leaves from around the garden, add some organic

compost to give the soil a boost of organic matter, and add a

bark mulch to the top for extra protection.

On the hunt

for Easter


Real estate company at the

heart of the community

There were plenty of excited

children dashing aboutKirrin Island,

Preston Downs on Easter Sunday,

all searching for hidden Easter eggs

in the Ray White sponsored Easter Egg Hunt

Fun Day.

The day’s activities included competitions as

well as a fundraising raffle and sausage sizzle.

These raised almost $500 for Maddie Collins,

who will be travelling to the United States for a

kidney transplant.

The Ray White tent at the recent West Melton School Fete, which the firm sponsored.

Located in the West Melton Village

shopping complex, Ray White Town &

Lifestyle is right at the heart of the local

Piano recital

to celebrate a

special birthday

Plans on

track for new



Local pianist and retired piano teacher

Veronica van der Knaap will give a piano

recital later this month to celebrate her

70th birthday.

She has chosen to donate all profits

to the Canterbury Charity

Hospital Trust, as it is a cause

she strongly supports.

Veronica, who has been living

in Canterbury since 1971, was

born in The Netherlands, where

she obtained professional

qualifications at the Amsterdam


Since retiring from her

teaching career Veronica has

remained an active performer.

Her birthday recital will

include works by Brahms,

Chopin, Schubert and others.

It will be held at the Nut Point

Centre, West Melton on Sunday, May 14,

at 2 p.m.

Tickets are available online at www.

The Selwyn District Council’s Project

Steering Committee and Council have

been continuing to develop plans for

the new West Melton Community and

Recreation Centre.

Resource Consent has been granted for

the project and a fundraising drive will be

launched in September to gain support for

the project from the local community and

corporate sponsors.

Plans for the Community and

Recreation Centre include a main stadium

with a full-sized basketball court, meeting

rooms, catering kitchen, playcentre

and Plunket facilities, Scout hall and

youth area, toilets and change facilities,

associated landscaping and plenty of car


The existing community hall will remain

available for use until the new facility is

open, and it is planned to remove the old

building once the new facility opens.

The project is now working towards

completing detailed drawings so the

project can be tendered next year. The

expected date for completion and opening

of the facility is 2018.

Prime Minister Bill English and Primary

“This will be a real boost to the Canterbury

“Importantly, it also has many

environmental benefits. Using alpinesourced

environmentally beneficial for Canterbury

as it reduces pressure on aquifers, which

are needed to replenish flows in lowland

of improving its water quality.

“For any farm to qualify for scheme water

it has to prepare a plan with a nutrient

budget and meet high standards.”

Crown Irrigation Investments Limited

(CIIL) has committed to providing a $65

million secured loan to CPW to partfund

Stage 2 of the CPW Scheme. Crown

Irrigation’s partial funding of Stage 2 means

that the project can be future-proofed for

long-term demand.

CIIL invested $6.5 million into CPW

Stage 1, which has since been fully repaid,

and full repayment is expected for the Stage

2 investment as well.

A new Sustainable Farming Fund

(SFF) project “SMART Tools and Tips

for Irrigators” is aimed at improving

management practices for irrigators to

deliver better environmental and economic

outcomes. The funding is for $294,400 and

will be led by Irrigation New Zealand.

Another new SFF project led by Federated

Farmers will be looking at the impacts of

irrigation on soil water holding properties.

This project, worth $295,950, will help both

farmers and regional councils by enabling

more effective and efficient use of irrigation

water, reduced drainage and reduced loss of

soluble nutrients.

While in the region Mr Guy also visited the

Hinds/Hekeao Managed Aquifer Recharge

(MAR) project site near Ashburton.

The pilot project, which began in

February 2016, is testing the feasibility of

adding alpine sourced water to shallow

groundwater to help recharge lowland

streams during dry periods and reduce

nitrate levels in the groundwater.

“I was pleased to hear that in the first

year of this project, the bores monitoring

New Zealand vets back

antibiotic use reduction

World Veterinary Day (WVD) took place globally on April 29, 2017.

The theme this year was Antimicrobial

Resistance: From awareness to action.

The New Zealand Veterinary Association

(NZVA) says it is well placed to discuss this

concerning and challenging issue that the

World Health Organisation has named one

of the greatest global health challenges we


NZVA chief executive Mark Ward says

the New Zealand Veterinary Association is

taking a strong position on Antimicrobial


“Our goal is that by 2030 New Zealand

Inc. will not need antibiotics for the

maintenance of animal health and welfare,”

Mr Ward says.

“It’s an aspirational goal. It’s big. But

this is an enormous issue facing us, New

Zealand’s veterinarians want to do their

part to reduce our dependency on these

critical medicines and preserve their use

for as long as possible.

“We knew that finding alternatives,

lateral thinking, and collaboration would

be key to finding solutions to antibiotic

resistance. And that’s what we’re doing,

with the backing of vets, government and

industry across the country.”

The veterinary profession’s aspirational

goal was launched by the NZVA in July

2015. They are working collaboratively

with a range of organisations – from

the Ministry of Health and Ministry for

Primary Industries to DairyNZ and Pork

New Zealand, to promote the responsible

use of antibiotics in animals to ensure their

continued effectiveness in safeguarding

both animal and human health.

“We’ve received strong support for

our vision,” Mr Ward says. “We’re now

exploring strategies to address antibiotic

resistance; this could be an innovation

opportunity for New Zealand – it should

be seen in terms of opportunity.

“New Zealand has some of the lowest

rates of antibiotic use in animals for food

production in the world. We are the thirdlowest

user of antimicrobials globally.

But we don’t want to be complacent. It’s

important we continue this momentum.”

A 2015 PwC report, commissioned by

the NZVA, found that as one of the three

lowest users of antibiotics to treat animals

in the OECD, New Zealand could increase

the value of its exports with reducedantibiotic

livestock systems and scientific


“Very few public health issues are of

greater importance than antimicrobial

resistance in terms of their impact on

society,” Mr Ward says.

Effective antibiotics have been a key

factor in living longer and healthier.

Addressing antimicrobial resistance is

a community issue and we’re tackling it

as a community - veterinarians, doctors,

farmers, animal owners (pets and equine)

and industry stakeholders.

Taking a walk through a show home is fun, whether

thinking about building or wanting ideas for renovating or

revitalising home furnishings. They can be a great place to

find the latest trends in building and interior design and

how certain home furnishing elements work together.

It is now the norm for a building company to have a

show home and for larger subdivisions to have a show

home village so it is not surprising that a new impressive

show home village is currently taking shape at Faringdon

in Rolleston.

Faringdon’s new show home village should be fully

operational by July this year, with most of the major

building companies opening homes in a village that is

expected to be the largest of its kind to be developed in

Canterbury, if not New Zealand.

Other show home villages in the area are at Flemington

and Te Whāriki in Lincoln.

Closer to the city is Halswell on the Park, Knights Stream

Park in Halswell and The Runway at Wigram Skies, where

there is a good line up of interesting and varied show


To the north east of the city you will find the Preston

subdivision, which has a show home street then in Kaiapoi,
