SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Tuesday May 9 2017 7 News • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding MOTORISTS looking to fuel-up their vehicles in Sheffield will have to go elsewhere with the only station in the village closing for the next 10 weeks. Allied Petroleum will demolish its existing building and redevelop its Sheffield fuel stop at 81 Main West Coast Rd. During the closure, drivers could use Allied’s Darfield fuel FRESH: Allied Petroleum will redevelop its Sheffield fuel stop at 81 Main West Coast Rd. ​ Rebuild for Sheffield fuel stop stop which operates 24/7. The work that was expected to begin early last month began last week. The upgrade will involve increasing the size of the forecourt area while ensuring improved vehicle access in and out. As well as the installation of petrol and diesel, a new diesel exhaust fluid Alliedblue will be introduced. But petroleum division marketing manager Brett Haldane said the cost of the project could not be revealed due to commercial sensitivity. Sheffield/Waddington Community Committee secretary Melissa Jebson said it is “tremendous” that Allied is investing into the township. Allied Petroleum is a subsidiary of the HWR Group which is a family-owned business in Invercargill. Good reason to follow tradition • By Bridget Rutherford WHEN EMMA Yates lost her grandmother to breast cancer, she inherited her collection of china crockery. The Rolleston resident will use the collection when she hosts a Pink Ribbon afternoon tea on May 21 to raise money and awareness for the Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand. Ms Yates said her grandmother, Lerline Morris lost her battle with the disease. She was 57. ​ “The one thing that’s special to me is that the china has her initials on the bottom that she’s done in nail varnish.” Mrs Morris painted her initials so when she took it to her women’s division functions, she would know they were hers, Ms Yates said. Ms Yates, now 39, had two fibroadenoma lumps removed when she was 29 and 31, and goes for a check up every year now. She said it was so important for women of any age to be aware of the breast cancer symptoms and to get checked. “I think a lot of people think it will never happen to them.” TRIBUTE: Emma Yates will host a Pink Ribbon afternoon tea this month with her late grandmother’s crockery to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER She said she was “very lucky”. Last year she hosted a breakfast with a friend – but this year would be her first individual event. She chose to do an afternoon tea because it was more in line with her business The Traveling Tea Party. •If you would like to sign up to host a Pink Ribbon event, visit
