WHEEL CLAMPING signs put

up outside a new cafe in Lincoln,

may be unenforceable.

The Black Door Bar and

Eatery on the site of the old Tea

House has posted warnings it

could clamp or tow vehicles not

being used by customers parked

outside of its Robert St premises.

But this appears to be in

breach of the original resource

consent issued for the building

in 2010.

The district council said

yesterday an investigation was

under way into why the clamping

signs had been put up.

The signs cover 12 parallel

parks outside Black Door and

adjacent Lincoln Village Preschool

and Nursery.

District council environmental

service manager Tim Harris

told the Selwyn Times the cafe

cannot impose its own parking

restrictions on the Robert

St parks, and cannot enforce

clamping or towing.

Non-cafe customers could use

the car parks, he said.

The parking spaces are on

road reserve, and are owned by

the district council, he said.

Mr Harris said the agreement

allows the cafe to paint

markings on the parking spaces

indicating cafe use.

“However signage on the fence

in front of these spaces is not

allowed, as this is private property,”

he said.

But the cafe’s owner Anita

Alder said she has a different

viewpoint to the district council

to the signs.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

Inside

News.....................................3-17

THERE’S BEEN raised eyebrows in

Lincoln over the clamping signs in

Robert St.

The owner of the soon-to-beopened

Black Door cafe has put

them up outside her business to

ward off non-customers’ vehicles.

I can see why she is worried –

parking in Lincoln around Robert

and Gerald Sts is quickly becoming

an issue as the township grows.

That’ll be complicated even further

when off-street parking is lost

for the planned cycle ways in Gerald

St. But clamping and towing? Is that

Selwyn?

The issue is: Can the Black Door

cafe put the signs up?

The district council says no; the

owners say yes, and that is being

discussed by the parties.

On another note, we reveal the

number and breeds of dangerous

dogs in the district.

Let’s be careful out there.

Schools’ multi-million dollar boost

BULGING SCHOOL rolls in

Lincoln and Prebbleton may

be eased with a multi-million

dollar Government injection.

Lincoln Primary School will

receive about $3 million for six

new classrooms

and Prebbleton

School will

get about $2

million for

four new classrooms.

Kim

Alexander

The funding

was part of an

announcement

yesterday in which schools

across Canterbury will benefit

from $5.5 million to be invested

in expanding the capacity of

schools.

The announcement was made

during a visit to Prebbleton

School by Associate Minister of

Education Tim Macindoe.

Lincoln Primary School

principal Vivienne Butcher said

it means this time next year, all

of its pupils will be able to learn

on its main campus.

At the moment, the school has

a junior campus for year 0 to 3

pupils and its main campus is

for year 3 to 8 pupils.

Kim Alexander said the

school has been experiencing

last few years and is at capacity

now.

“Another four classrooms

will cater for enrolments over

the next two to three years,” she

said.

Prebbleton has about 490

pupils on its roll, while Lincoln

has more than 600.

Mr Macindoe said yesterday

that all of the schools receiving

funding in the Canterbury

region had experienced

increases in their rolls.

He said growth in the

Canterbury region showed

the resilient nature of the

community following the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

It is expected the new

classrooms at Lincoln Primary

and Prebbleton School will be

up and running in the 2018

school year.

Minister of Education

Nikki Kaye said the first

round of school infrastructure

investment under this year’s

Budget will provide a total of 11

new classrooms to three schools

in the Canterbury region,

adding space for around 220

students.

In Brief

NO ARRESTS MADE

Police inquiries are ongoing into

the mysterious disappearance

of a set of distinctive gates at a

Tai Tapu furniture shop. Last

week, Selwyn Times reported the

Obelisk furniture store, situated

on the Christchurch Akaroa Rd,

had the gates covering a 6m-wide

opening to the business stolen.

A spokesman said police would

welcome any fresh information

that would help with the investigation.

SELWYN WATER SEMINAR

It’s a dog’s world in Selwyn

SELWYN TIMES

Not all

As the population

grows in Selwyn so

too are the number

of dogs in the district.

Georgia O’Connor

Harding reports

TITUS HAS been part of Leeston

resident Penny Dadson-Clausen’s

family since he arrived as a pup

nearly 10 years ago.

A majestic looking boy he was

named Titus after the Roman

emperor who ruled between 79-

81AD

Titus is part of a growing canine

population in Selwyn – there’s

13,034 registered dogs in the district

now, up from 10,628 in 2012.

It mirrors the growing human

population.

Farmlands Real Estate agent

Mrs Dadson-Clausen, a real

estate agent with Farmlands, said

Selwyn was a great place to have

a dog.

The roadsides were safe to walk

dogs and places to take them

swimming.

Titus, 10, was a typical Labrador

– laid back. His favourite

place is the Rakaia Lagoon.

Mrs Dadson-Clausen likes it

because of its clean, deep water

allowing Titus to “go nuts.”

Mrs Dadson-Clausen is looking

forward to the new 1.8ha dog

park planned to be up and running

in Leeston by spring after often

taking Titus to the Foster Park

dog exercise area in Rolleston.

“He gets really carried away and

bossy when we go to the park – in

a good way, he tells everybody

they must come play with him

right now,” she said.

The new park, to be located

between the A&P Showgrounds

and land leased to the Ellesmere

Heritage Park, will include dog

exercise equipment and a small

pond.

NOT ALL dogs in Selwyn are

friendly. There are 77 which are

classed as menacing, latest data

reveals.

There are another seven dogs

which are regarded as being

dangerous.

The information was released

in an Environmental Services

Statistics Report by the district

council.

The dangerous dogs are

a glen of imaal terrier cross,

staffordshire bull terrier,

labrador retriever-huntaway

cross, mastiff cross, german

wirehaired pointer, jack russell

cross and bull mastiff.

District council senior animal

control officer Steve Clarke said

the whereabouts of where dogs

are located is protected under

the Dog Control Act 1996 and

could not be released.

He said the district’s

increasing population is the

reason for more dogs living in

the area.

District council data

shows Selwyn’s total human

population had increased from

44,595 in 2012 to 58,859 this

year.

With it, the number of

registered dogs in Selwyn had

grown from 10,628 to 13,034.

•From page 1

There was nothing in the resource

consent to say the business

cannot put up the signs, she said.

Ms Alder said there had previously

been signage at the site

regarding parking when the Tea

House operated, but it had since

gone.

However, she told the Selwyn

Times she did not know what

was on the signage.

Ms Alder said the only guideline

in the resource consent

was for the business to actively

contain and possess the usage of

the parks.

The original resource consent

stated the 12 angle car

parks located along the road

frontage be retained for use by

the business.

In the original consent the district

council agreed the former

parallel parking spaces would be

converted to 12 angle-parking

spaces made available for use by

the cafe.

Ms Alder said it was about

being transparent about what

the car parks are there for and if

the district council can’t enforce

them, then they are in breach of

the resource consent.

She said if her customers were

unable to park in the area for a

certain length of time because

of unauthorised vehicles it was

understandable to have the cars

towed or clamped.

“At some point the district

council needs to start infringement

on time limits because if

you want business to invest in

the community they need to be

able to have customers to access

their buildings,” she said.

The car parks like others in

business areas of Lincoln already

have district council imposed

120min maximum time limits.

Ms Alder said she would not

automatically clamp cars but

would decide if the driver was

abusing the car parks.

Ratepayers to pay for fence

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A CONTROVERSIAL ratepayerfunded

fence at Flock Hill

Station has been given the

go-ahead.

The Selwyn Waihora Zone

Committee has reconfirmed its

decision to allocate $26,571 of

its Immediate Steps Biodiversity

Funding to section off a part of

Cave Stream and 35ha wetlands

at the station.

The zone initially

approved

allocating

$44,236 to the

project in March

but has since

reviewed its

Allen Lim

decision.

It comes

after an

application by Flock Hill’s

leaseholder Flock Hill Holdings,

owned by Jim Foster and Vince

Saunders of Los Angeles-based

Coast Range New Zealand, was

made.

It proposed fencing off Cave

Stream as a way of mitigating

the associated loss of biodiversity

on the terraces.

The landowners will

contribute $22,000 towards the

project.

A final decision on the funding

was held off at the zone’s

May meeting after concerns

more research needed to be done

on the project.

About five zone committee

members travelled to Cave

Stream last month to visit the

site.

The funding has since been reduced

by $17,665 after the Flock

Hill Station owners decided it

wanted funding only for stage

one and two of the project and

not stage three.

A ECan report said a revised

farm plan deemed contribution

stage three as not viable longterm.

Zone committee chairman Allen

Lim said stage three was the

most controversial and costly

part of the project covering the

Cave Stream terraces.

At the meeting, a verbal vote

on the funding was made by

each of the zone committee

members.

No objections were made.

Mr Lim said the zone was

comfortable with the project

protecting rare species and

would have most likely approved

all stages.

Selwyn Times reported in

April the project was recommended

by ECan’s own ecologist

Dr Phillip Grove that it was not

funded.

advocate Nicky Snoyink said

while she found the public

money being spent on American

investors hard to stomach, she

is pleased the fence will not go

through DOC’s recommended

area of protection.

“We feel these landscapes are

really vulnerable because there is

a big push to farm every little bit

of flat area available in the high

Beagle Norman a big part of

Lydia Gliddon, 31 owns Darfield’s The Fat Beagle

Cafe. The Kirwee resident spoke to Georgia

O’Connor-Harding about what it was like to set

up her own business, living with Crohn’s disease

and the special dog she named her cafe after

Tell me about your cafe?

We have been running it for

about nine months now. Our

theme is wholesome foods. Just

real food and no preservatives.

We do a lot of our baking on

site. We are well-known for our

scones and muffins which are

baked fresh every day.

What is your top dish?

The pea and halloumi fritters.

I spend quite a bit of time

mucking around and making all

kinds of different food.

Had you done a lot of

hospitality before your decided

to set up this cafe?

I did a lot when I was younger.

I have always been into cooking

and hospitality. I was away

working in the skiing industry

for quite a long time. That

was fun but it is nice to do

something for yourself and be

creative.

What made you think setting

up in the Darfield community

would make such a successful

cafe?

It is a cool community.

Everybody knows each other

and support from your locals is

the key really. I love food so it is

a passion of mine to be able to

do that. The building the cafe is

based in is an old one and has a

nice homely feel about it.

Do you get a lot of travellers

through?

I would say it is mainly locals

but during the week we have

rushes of tourists and then

through the weekend there a lot

of people from Christchurch out

travelling or Sunday driving.

Our busiest day since we started

was on a Saturday with 500

sales.

When did you first become

interested in food?

I used to do a lot of baking

with my nana as a child and that

is probably where it started off.

My nana’s baking is pretty funny

because she never measures

anything. She pours it in a bowl.

Somehow it worked for her but

the girls at the cafe give me grief

because I never measure much.

Just chuck it. I also did baking

when I went to Darfield High

School. I remember representing

school at a cooking competition

at Westfield Riccarton and

making satay chicken when

I was about 15. That was my

biggest achievement apart from

this being my first business. And

trying to rebuild a business as

well because there was a cafe

already here.

Why is wholesome food so

important to you?

I have Crohn’s disease. It

makes me eat really healthy

food or I end up quite sick. The

disease is an inflammation of

the bowel and basically you have

ulcers through your digestive

system and you can get pretty

sick from it. I find eating good

food makes a big change for you.

If you are eating things with a lot

of preservatives or junk in them

they are irritating your tummy.

Research has showed there is a

massive increase of people with

Crohn’s disease in Canterbury. I

just want to provide people with

eating options to eat even if it is

gluten free or dairy free. It is nice

to have fresh food. It is nice for

people with food allergies that

can go out and eat somewhere

because it can be pretty hard.

Lydia’s busy Darfield cafe

Where did the name The Fat

Beagle Cafe come from?

We thought it would be a name

everyone would remember. We

used to just call it the little cafe

on the corner. I wanted to do

something everyone remembers.

The name comes from our little

beagle Norman. People love it

when Norman is at the cafe. We

are always asked if there is a fat

beagle. Our dog is well-fed.

What makes Norman so

special?

He is a bit of a character. He

is a bit of a snob. People want to

pat and cuddle him because he is

quite cute but he is just not really

that interested unless you have

got food. He is extremely naughty.

A real rat bag. He is keen on

taking food out of the pantry.

Opening bags of rice, flour and

sugar around the house. He has

done the same with rubbish tins

– pulled everything out. Licked

all the paper and rubbish. No way

is he allowed in the kitchen at the

cafe.

But your cafe is definitely a

place for dogs?

We have a courtyard out the

back where they are allowed to

run around. One of the girls here

even makes dog treats. She makes

bone-shaped treats and gives

them out to people who brings

dogs here. We are more than

happy to have dogs here-there is

a bowl of water for them. It is

nice if you are out walking your

dog and you have a cup of

coffee.

You are definitely a dog person

over anything else?

RELAXING: (From left to right)

– Tara Marshall, Franziska

Erdmann and Lydia Gliddon

take time out skiing. Above –

Norman only likes cuddles if

food is around.

We have a cat too but Norman

is pretty special.

Do you have any other Norman

highlights to share?

He is quite good at disappearing.

He digs out, climbs fences or

goes and visits other people then

appears back a couple of days

later which is quite stressful. He

loves hunting and sniffing for

rabbits. I remember once we left

him inside and he had got into a

big pack of toilet paper and just

shredded it. It was like it had

snowed. Then he just makes out

nothing has happened – like he

has just been in bed the whole

time sleeping. He is eight now but

you can’t train beagles – they live

in their own world.

What are you interests outside

of your job?

I play netball and I have been

skiing since I was 13.

Tell me about your skiing

career?

I worked overseas in America

teaching snowboarding over

there. I was at Canyons Resort,

Utah, United States. It was

awesome. Something that

always benefits you when you

go overseas is being a Kiwi.

People are always really friendly

towards Kiwis because we

have a reputation for being

hard-working and friendly. The

Americans are funny – they

could never understand what we

were talking about because we

spoke so fast. I have also worked

at Mt Hutt. When I stopped

teaching I went and worked

for Gnomes Alpine Sports in

Darfield and was manager until I

bought the business.

Your Local Views

Cherry and Don Lorking

respond to Selwyn Times

article on the district

council setting up a

working party to look at the

district’s facilities available

to cope with freedom

campers

My wife and I agree working

parties, throughout New Zealand,

need to consider a charge

for the honour of using the

facilities we provide for freedom

campers at great cost.

They say they cannot afford to

pay, so they don’t have a holiday

in New Zealand. They have paid

for air fares, vehicles and food

so they need to budget for a payment

for the facilities as well.

Living near Coes Ford we see

the numbers which have now

put off families like ours going to

enjoy the area.

Steve Young responds

to Selwyn Times’ article

on parking issues at The

Famous Sheffield Pie Shop

The parking around the pie

shop is, as your photograph

partly shows, ill-defined, which

is the fault of both the property

owner and the road controlling

authorities.

The shop’s off-street parking

needs to be better defined, especially

out front. The berms you

refer to don’t belong to the neighbours;

they are part of the road

reserve, and as such it’s the district

council’s job to maintain them.

Although, obviously, most people,

including me, mow the grass

berms outside our properties.

Widen the seal on Duke St

(and preferably put in kerbing

and footpaths as well), paint

parking spaces, signpost the

shop’s back car park, and problem

solved. Widening the seal on

the north side of State Highway

73, with a bit of kerbing to define

the road edge as well, would also

be a good move.

We said:

The Famous Sheffield

Pie Shop makes a darn

good pie – but locals are

screaming out for roading

changes to make it safer

to park outside the shop

which sits beside a busy

highway:

You said:

Alison Westrupp – Put in a

bus lane. That’s what they do to

ease parking issues isn’t it?

I’m kidding, I support local business

and I hope this issue is able

to be sorted.

Andrew Johnson – I’d park

in Springfield and walk there for

one of their pies.

Denise Petrie – Parking

omg. Seriously have you been

to Auckland or Wellington and

looked for a safe park. Walking

is an option.

Andrea Welsh – Oh yum.

They have the best pies.

Ken Duggan – Move the

shop, easy.

Andrew Gordon – Good

pies.

We said:

Darfield has been

labelled as having the best

tasting water in the country

by a panel of judges at

the New Zealand Water

Industry Operators Group

conference. Do you agree?

You said:

Jenny Blacklock – Sounds

great. We always take large

containers of our water from

Motueka when we go travelling

as ours is just as superb also.

Would love to know how we

rated in the water industry tests.

We will give you guys a “taste

test” next time we are travelling

through Darfield.

Graeme Brown – Should

have kept that quiet. Now they

will sell the rights to a bottling

plant for next to nothing and

then charge Darfield higher rates

to cover the costs.

Hamish Middleton

– Amazing that within 40km it

either turns bad or disappears

completely.

Wendy McDiarmid: Waikuku

Beach has the best water.

Dean Anthony Robinson:

Lake Tekapo’s water clear

cool clean just so fresh.

We said:

Jimmy Barnes is

memories of playing Jimmy

on the ol’ tape deck back in

just what Christchurch could do

with after what they have been

through over the past five years.

Things get done in Springfield

Springfield Township

Committee secretary

Sean Ellis writes about

developments going on in

the area

Mention township and most

people switch off, thinking of a

room full of people talking all

night, going around in circles

and nothing getting decided, but

not in Springfield.

We are very aware we are the

link between our community

and the district council and go to

great lengths to keep both parties

in the loop.

Using the Springfield Facebook

page, it has been great for putting

out information and asking

for suggestions on the direction

the township will move.

We also have a good working

relationship with our domain

board and hall committee

sharing plan ideas and working

together.

Having Malvern Community

Board deputy chairman Kerry

Pauling attend all meetings

bridges the gap between

township and district council

and get answers to questions in

a matter of days instead of

months.

The committee is made up

from all walks of life, builders,

farmers, teachers, mums, business

owners and a shepherd. We

meet the first Tuesday of every

month.

We encourage members of the

public to come along if they have

an issue or a proposal.

We only ask that they get in

touch with a member of the committee

at least a week before the

meeting, this isn’t to put people

off, more that we can have the

answers ready for you when you

turn up.

Within the past two years we

have worked hard to keep moving

forward to make are small

town a little better.

We have reduced the speed

limit of the town from 70km/h

to 50km/h and installed a speed

limit flashing light.

We have built a state-of-the-art

set of public toilets and improved

the parking area to give access to

coaches.

We removed six old man pines

that were making a family life

hell having to live in permanent

frosts during the winter months

and cleared an area of weedinfested

land, stone-picked it

sowed it with grass and replanted

it with trees and now it’s called

the Tramway Reserve.

Several oregon pines that

were crowding out many of the

oak trees in the area have been

removed. A 700m walking/cycle

track along Tramway Rd was

installed recently.

We have several ongoing

projects. A walkway to link up

the township with the domain

camping ground. This will run

from Rewi Alley memorial, along

the top of the old railway embankment

across a new culvert

and down to run parallel with

the State Highway 73 on land

donated by the Faulkner family.

All going well this should be

completed by the end of August,

weather permitting.

Also in the early stages is a

plan to turn the old town pit into

a nature trail being planted out

with natives.

Finally, a bus stop for the kids

at far end of the township on a

small plot of land owned by Jo

Frecker who has agreed to have

the bus stop put up there.

This isn’t the end of our plans

we are just pausing for breath

and completing projects before

adding to the list.

The committee past and present

do work hard to keep a little

bit of heaven.

Ditch causing concern

near Sheffield railway line

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

CALLS FOR a chain fence to

be constructed alongside the

railway line in Sheffield to

stop motorists reversing into a

ditch appears to be getting no

traction.

There is a concern motorists

could back into a trench

located between a car park and

railway line running through

Sheffield.

The issue was raised at the

Sheffield-Waddington Community

Committee in April

where it was suggested a chain

fence be placed near the car

park.

Secretary Melissa Jebson said

the committee had followed up

the issue with Sheffield-based

KiwiRail train driver Philip

Newbigging.

But Mr Newbigging told

Selwyn Times while he explained

to the committee why

the ditch was there, he only

drives the trains and the issue

needed to be followed up with

KiwiRail’s engineering and

infrastructure team.

The matter was also referred

to the Malvern Community

Board.

Deputy chairman Kerry

Pauling said it was unlikely a

DANGER: A trench located

PHOTO: RICHARD HARDING

chain fence would be put in

place and KiwiRail were reluctant

to do anything.

“From a car park point of

view they shouldn’t be that

close to the railway line anyway,”

he said.

A KiwiRail spokeswoman

confirmed the trench was installed

to provide drainage but

the land beside the railway line

is leased to the district council

and any decision to install a

fence would need to be made

by them.

The district council’s property

and services co-ordinator

Rob Allen said it will be liaising

with KiwiRail to look at the

line and identify if there are

any safety issues.

KidsFest bookings

now open!

McHughs Forest

improvements continue

A drop in morning was recently held where people could find out

more about current and future projects planned at McHughs Forest

Park. The park is located just outside Darfield and continues to be

developed by a group of local volunteers, with support from the

Council. People attending the session expressed support for the

direction being taken to manage and improve the park. Everyone

expressed a desire to see the retention of the natural feel of the

Park and wanted a ‘light touch’ to be taken with improvements to

retain the existing forest atmosphere.

A new toilet has now been developed at the park. A second car

parking area is nearing completion. A drinking fountain with a dog

bowl is to be developed, with two picnic tables to be installed

soon. Work also continues to complete the forming of the second

half of the mountain bike track along the eastern side of the forest.

Workers from the Department of Corrections have also been helping

with this work by grooming the track.

Future projects planned include some low impact track marking

signage and the installation of an explanatory sign and map at the

car park entranceway. This sign can be installed once the mountain

bike track is finalised.

KidsFest is set to return this July school holidays with bookings now open. Over 80 events will be

held in Selwyn as part of KidsFest between 8 and 22 July.

“KidsFest has lots of fun events and activities for kids to do in the upcoming winter school

holidays,” says Selwyn District Council’s Senior Events and Recreation Advisor Dave Tippett.

“Events are expected to fill fast so we advise parents to book early to ensure families can go to

their preferred events.”

“Activities planned by the Council include Discomania, Moviemania, a high ropes challenge,

landscape art class, Kids Market, Filmmaker Masterclasses, acrobatic Comedy and Magic Show,

Rogaine Rampage, and fun water activities at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre with aqua volleyball and

handball, inflatables and paddleboats. The libraries are holding a young writers’ course, K’NEX fun

with Science Alive, LEGO® and Craft! collage artwork.”

Last year over 1,200 children attended Selwyn District Council organised KidsFest events. Local

KidsFest events are organised by Selwyn community groups, the Council and local businesses

and facilities. Some KidsFest events are free, while others are low cost. Booking is required for

some events.

KidsFest has been running since 1992. Selwyn families can also attend events in Christchurch

and Waimakariri.

For information on KidsFest events and bookings visit www.kidsfest.co.nz, or pick up a KidsFest

booklet from a Selwyn District Library, the Lincoln Event Centre, Rolleston Community Centre or

Selwyn Aquatic Centre.

Drive safe this winter

June marks the official start of winter and this brings an increased risk of rain, fog, ice and snow. In

these conditions it is important to slow down and adjust your driving to the conditions.

Winter also reduces visibility with sunrise occurring later in the mornings and sunset occurring earlier in

the evening. Many people are on the road driving to or from work in darkness or dim light. Using your

vehicle lights is a simple way of increasing visibility and improving safety.

“The way we all drive affects everyone’s safety on the road,” says Selwyn Road Safety Coordinator

Ngaire Tinning. “Wet and slippery roads and inappropriate speed for the conditions can be unforgiving

of small mistakes, particularly on bends. It’s important to slow down in challenging weather and allow

larger following distances on wet roads as it takes longer to stop in these conditions.”

Some Selwyn residents are reporting drivers not using their lights in rain and fog, while others say they

have seen cars passing them at speed when they don’t have a clear view of the road ahead.

Statistics from Selwyn crashes between 2012 and 2016 show that in the winter months (June, July

and August) there were twice as many accidents in the 6-9am time period as in the summer months

(December, January and February). A total of 76 crashes occurred in this morning peak period in winter

between 2012 and 2016, with a total of 38 crashes occurring in this time in the summer.

Throughout the winter, the Council’s roading

contractors will be monitoring local roads for ice

and laying grit when needed. Even when roads are

covered with grit, motorists still need drive carefully

and reduce their speed.

“Taking a few minutes before you set out in the

morning to clear your windscreen, windows and

mirrors, and then adjusting your driving for the

conditions that day will improve your chances of

arriving safely at your destination,” says Mrs Tinning.

Free windscreen cloths and ice scrapers are now

available for a limited time from Council libraries

and service centres and some rural garages.

On the roads this week

Bridge replacement is continuing on Jarvis Road. Pothole repairs

are planned on Hororata Road. Footpath construction work will

continue on Birchs Road in Lincoln. Unsealed maintenance work is

planned on Zig Zag Road. Traffic controls will operate at all sites.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension – NZ

Transport Agency

The one-way system remains on Waterholes Road from Hamptons

Road to 833 Waterholes Road running south towards Robinsons

Road with detours in place, and changes to the road alignment to

allow for construction of the bridge. Stop-Go systems will be in

place over the next week along Jones Road, at the intersection with

Weedons Ross Road during tree felling operations.

Please be alert to changes in the traffic management, follow the onsite

signage and drive to the conditions.

Huge Golden Oldies festival

In just under a year,

Canterbury will host

the largest sporting

event it has ever seen

– but this one is more

about having fun

than winning. Bridget

Rutherford reports

THEY ENJOY social sport and a

good after-match function.

And next year, more than

10,000 Golden Oldies will come

to Canterbury in the largest

sporting event the city has ever

seen.

The aim? Fun, friendship and

fraternity.

The Christchurch Casino

Golden Oldies Sports Celebration

will run throughout April at

different locations in the city.

But this event, organised by

sport event management, tour

and travel company Vintage

Sport and Leisure, will be different

to any others in Golden

Oldies’ history.

Vintage Sport and Leisure

chief executive Peter McDermott

said it was designed especially

for the city following the September

4, 2010, and February 22,

2011, earthquakes.

“[Canterbury Earthquake

Recovery Authority] asked if

we could do something that

would be a bit different and

encouraging for people to learn

that Christchurch, despite its

problems, was well and truly

regenerating.”

Normally, Golden Oldies’

tournaments for each sport are

held in different international

cities every two years. But come

April, the event will combine 10

different sports.

Lawn bowls, golf, squash,

football and basketball are new,

while the traditional rugby,

cricket, netball, hockey and softball

will feature as well.

“We’ve never done 10 sports

in one place. This is designed

specially for Christchurch,” Mr

HAVING FUN: Christchurch’s Jacqui Francis, Jude Tuuta, Debbie Elstob, Paula Goodman and

Rose Cavanagh went to Hobart last year to compete in Golden Oldies netball.

McDermott said.

“We anticipate about 10,000

participants, of which probably

75 per cent to 80 per cent will

come from overseas or outside of

Christchurch.”

Hagley Park will be the event

hub, with rugby, cricket, football

and netball played there.

Nunweek Park, Cowles

Stadium, Mizuno Ballpark and

Papanui Bowling Club will

host the other codes, with golf

being played across Harewood,

Christchurch, Pegasus and

Terrace Downs golf clubs. The

squash venue will be finalised

soon.

Mr McDermott said although

Golden Oldies was open to

anyone over 35, the bulk of participants

were between 45-65.

Most participants were from

New Zealand and Australia. But

competitors from Japan, Russia,

the United States, Canada, England

and Ireland will make the

journey as well.

The oldest rugby player who

had taken part was 87, while at

last year’s Golden Oldies World

Rugby Festival in Cardiff there

were 10 players aged over 80.

It’s not just the sport they

come for. “They’re a very social

group,” Mr McDermott said.

“They enjoy their sport and to

mix and mingle and meet other

people.”

The event is expected to bring

$33 million of direct economic

benefit to Canterbury.

“Based on our past history,

they are big spenders on entertainment,

food and beverage,

and retail.”

Canterbury Chamber of

Commerce chief executive Peter

Townsend said the city now had

the infrastructure to accommodate

an event of this magnitude.

“It will have a very positive

economic impact,” he said.

“We’re going to have a massive

influx of people who will be able

to see first-hand what stage we

are at recreating our city, and

how good it’s all starting to look,

and they will go away and tell

their friends and family what is

on offer here. That will be a huge

stimulus for the city.”

City councillor Tim Scandrett

said those attending were generally

big spenders and it was great

to be able to showcase postquake

Christchurch.

“It’s really important to show

that we are back up and running.”

For some participants, Golden

Oldies isn’t their first taste of

international competition.

Previously, it has attracted

ex-internationals such as Brumbies

coach and former Wallaby

Stephen Larkham, former All

Black prop Greg Somerville and

West Indies cricketing legend

Joel Garner.

But Mr McDermott said that

didn’t intimidate other competitors.

In fact, it was quite the

opposite.

“They love it.”

At one event, Larkham played

10min for every team and 10min

against so everyone got to play

with and against him, Mr Mc-

Dermott said. It was too early to

say whether there would be any

familiar faces playing next year.

But Mr McDermott said Garner

was likely to attend, although

he was not expected to take to

the pitch.

Although most of the games

were social, there were still

heated rivalries.

“There are rivalries, some

teams come back frequently.

The Australian and Kiwis have

a good, friendly rivalry, but they

like to have the bragging rights.”

And sometimes, there is an

opportunity to win a world

record.

At Cardiff’s Golden Oldies

World Rugby Festival,

participants broke the Guinness

World Record for the largest

scrum.

Welsh referee Nigel Owens

officiated the scrum, which was

made up of 1300 people.

“We’re looking for ideas

to do something similar in

Christchurch,” Mr McDermott

said.

He said it would “probably” be

the first and last time the Golden

Oldies’ event will be held in this

format, because it was difficult to

find a city that could host every

code.

But it will be an event to

remember for many.

“Some of the friendships

established 20 years ago are still

very strong,” he said.

SCHOOLS

GOOD DEED:

Darfield High

School year

8 pupils

have set up

a garden

project to

help child

poverty

organisation

KidsCan. ​

Darfield students dig

deep to help KidsCan

A FORGOTTEN corner

at the back of Darfield

High School has been

transformed into a fruit

and vegetable garden.

Rubbish and tree stumps

have been cleared as part

of a new gardening project

run by year 8 pupils to

raise money for KidsCan.

The pupils are planning

to run a community market

day at the school at the

end of the year when the

produce is fully grown to

donate to the organisation.

More than 150 students

are taking part in the

project.

After writing to numerous

organisations

throughout the area, the

school has received a

bumper crop of donations

including timber, strawberry

plants, raspberries

and tyres to use as planters

for the garden.

Year 8 pupil Sophie

Dance said the they chose

KidsCan to fundraise for

after watching a “shocking”

documentary about

child poverty in New

Zealand.

“We hope to raise money

so these children will

have food and clothes,” she

said.

Lincoln University

professor of ecology Steve

Wratten visited the school

to talk to the pupils about

companion planting,

pollinators and gave the

pupils seeds to plant.

The school also had a

visit from Mark Davis,

of contracting company

Sicon who removed the

tree stumps to make way

for the project.

Other organisations

to donate to the project

includes Mitre 10, King

Seeds, Egmont Seeds,

West Melton Plant Nursery,

Southern Woods Plant

Nursery, Beaurepaires,

The Warehouse, parents

and residents in the community.

Local business

caters for Selwyn

Nearly all Country Feasts’ staff are Selwyn locals.

Some of the Country Feasts team.

We cater for a wide range of events.

Marian and Holder Frey along with Kathy and

Red Dawson first began business producing preprepared

meals, in 2002. Soon after Marian’s

son, Thomas followed by other children, Oliver,

Caroline and Sarah, became involved.

After numerous requests for special function

catering, their focus shifted to professional

catering. Word of mouth spread and they were

soon receiving venue recommendations.

When the earthquake struck on 4 th September

2010, Country Feasts was fortunate to be one of

the few catering businesses not affected. Trading

continued uninterrupted with a client requesting

they still cater for her wedding that day.

In the last five years, Country Feasts Catering has

grown tremendously. They cater for numerous

events including weddings, country race

meetings, sporting functions, A & P shows, school

events, private functions, funerals, Christmas

parties, business meetings and conferences.

Individuals to large organisations are clients

of Country Feasts Catering. They are the main

caterers for Country Cricket, Canterbury Tennis

and the Davis Cup, Mainland Football, the New

Zealand Sheepbreeders (Christchurch A&P

Show), Ellesmere A&P Show, Homebush when

cruise ship passengers visit, and a biannual

3-day conference at Mt Cheeseman Skifield.

You will also see them at the Hororata Highland

Games, this year.

Country Feasts Catering has the expertise and

resources to efficiently provide small and large

event catering; travelling throughout the whole of

Canterbury and sometimes further afield. It is no

wonder they have an impressive client line-up.

Country Feasts offers finger food, buffet, spit

roast, plated, plattered, breakfasts and barbecue

options; accommodating specific dietary needs.

You might choose to have their serviced option

which includes crockery and cutlery with their

wonderful staff preparing and serving the food,

then cleaning-up afterwards. They have a liquor

licence and their own bar managers and bar staff.

There is also the option of do-it-yourself where

Country Feasts delivers the food in disposable

containers for you and your friends to take over.

“We like to sit down with our clients and listen to

their thoughts, making suggestions so they have

a good mix of food to suit an occasion,” explains

Marian who advises that sample menus can be

found on their website with options listed so clients

can tailor a menu to suit their requirements.

Nearly all staff employed by Country Feasts

live locally, many recruited from the Rolleston,

Prebbleton and Lincoln areas.

“We employ young and more mature alike,”

advises Marian who says the work is ideal for

people who want a little part-time employment

with them always looking for casual staff,

especially over the summer months.

Safe route for children

A NEW footpath in Springfield

is encouraging children to stay

away from the roads to get to

and from school.

A footpath installed

recently along Tramway Rd,

Pocock Rd and Springfield

School is one of several projects

to help create a walkway/

cycleway network in the township.

The Springfield Township

Committee is currently

working on a walkway to

link up the township with the

Kowai Pass Domain Camping

Ground and it is expected to

be finished at the end of the

year.

The committee and the

school’s board of trustees first

put in a request for the footpath

to the district council’s

Annual Plan in 2015.

“It was a highly anticipated

piece of work, and it is now

great to see children using

the footpath over the road for

play and for getting to school,”

committee member Catherine

Barnett said.

She said it helps keep younger

members of the community

safer and with an added benefit

of making Springfield look

smarter.

FUN: Springfield children now have a safe route to and from

school.

Tradesman loses

tools after break-in

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

ROLLESTON RESIDENTS are

rallying around a local builder

who has had his tools stolen.

Old School Builders

(Christchurch) Ltd builder

Travis Jansen had about $15,000

of tools, and a trailer, stolen

from a work site in Avonhead on

Sunday night.

The front window of the

house, located on Brookby Cres,

was broken into and Mr Jansen’s

tools were taken from the bedroom,

the trailer was taken from

the garage.

The self-employed builder had

left his equipment in the house

overnight.

“I could have taken all my

tools home but because it was

raining. I left all of my tools in

one of the bedrooms,” he said.

The tools include a nail

gun, rotating laser, finishing

gun, impacting drill, hammer

drill, drop saw, small

screwdrivers, skill saw, router

and sabre saw.

“It has taken me two years to

build up my tools . . . basically

it is back to square one,” Mr

Jansen said.

But after posting on Facebook’s

Rolleston Community

Page, Mr Jansen said he had

been left humbled by the number

of people who had messaged

him, offering tools he could

borrow.

A police spokeswoman said

a scene of crime officer has attended

but there was no forensic

evidence.

No arrests have been made.

Mr Jansen, who has a wife

and two children, said he

was unlikely to have any luck

making an insurance claim,

having only just changed

insurance companies about a

week ago.

He said he will never leave his

equipment on-site again and will

be looking to get GPS tracking

devices and portable cameras in

the future.

Southbridge holds off Rakaia

Nerves and a vocal

Rakaia home crowd

could not stop

Southbridge’s captain

kicking a late penalty

to seal a 13-12 win in

the combined country

competition on Sunday.

Andrew King reports

SPORTS

AS SOUTHBRIDGE captain

Shannon Donald lined up a

penalty in the 73rd minute of the

Luisetti Cup final, his hands were

shaking, nerves were shot and he

copped a verbal spray from the

opposition supporters.

“I knew as long as my legs

didn’t give out, I’d be fine,” he

said.

From 38m out, he hit the

ball cleanly and it sailed right

through the middle of the uprights.

Seven minutes later, the onepoint

lead was enough to give

them their third title in five years.

Southbridge’s 13-12 win over

Rakaia on Sunday was a great

moment for the 27-year-old firstfive

– one that didn’t set in until

he was sipping on his post-match

beer back in the Southbridge

Hotel.

“It is an awesome feeling. We

have a great bunch of boys and

supporters, even though we have

put them through the ringer the

past few weeks with some close

games,” he said.

FAMILY AFFAIR: Southbridge captain Shannon Donald, with

wife Kathryn and dog Boston, celebrated after the win over

Rakaia on Sunday. It was the team’s third Lussetti Cup title after

beating Rakaia 13-12.

PHOTOS: GILL HAPPER

Two of those supporters are

his wife Kathryn and their dog

Boston. The latter had donned his

Southbridge jersey to let the opposition

know who his allegiance

belonged to.

The game saw two tries a piece,

only Rakaia managed to convert

one of them giving the side a

12-10 lead, but then with seven

minutes to go, Donald slotted the

game winner.

The celebration raged into the

small hours of Monday morning

in Southbridge, with manager

Chris McMillan saying there will

be some sore heads, but proud

players.

“Some had work in the morning,

others had exams, so they

took off a bit earlier, but it did not

put a dampener on the win,” he

said.

The work is not over for the

Southbridge team who head into

the Ellesmere competition on

Saturday unbeaten. They will face

Waihora – a rematch of last year’s

final which they won.

It is the first time the squad

has held the Coleman Shield and

Luisetti Cup at the same time

after Sunday’s win.

“(Waihora) will be tough at

home. We are a bit battered and

bruised but we will be up for that

game,” McMillan said.

For Donald, the victory was

now behind him and he said it

was about keeping the pressure

on.

“We can’t fall asleep now, there

is still a lot of work to do,” he

said.

Kiwi Gas fill and sell refurbished gas bottles.

A passion for good service

We all have stories of businesses falling short on promises

leaving us waiting for goods.

Malcolm Ryder believes when companies cut back deliveries to

increase profits, poor service is the result.

“I want to provide service as it should be and once was,” explains

Malcolm, owner of Kiwi Gas.

“When you contact Kiwi Gas, you speak to a real person. You’re

not treated like a number or talking to an off-shore call centre.”

Locally owned and operated, the Kiwi Gas approach to business

is simple: competitive, if not cheaper pricing and the fastest

delivery around.

“We aim to deliver to customers in 24 hours regardless of

destination, a promise we’ve kept so far,” advises Malcolm. “It’s

all about service.”

No wonder, so many customers are delighted with their

excellent service.

Kiwi Gas has been supplying LPG to Christchurch for over 18

years. At their ‘drive-thru’ at 37 Shands Road in Hornby, they fill

gas bottles of all sizes with a 9kg fill just $25.90. They also sell

a full range of refurbished gas bottles, along with gas parts and

accessories.

Kiwi Gas also hire outdoor heaters to bars, restaurants, and the

public for private events from as little as $39 per heater per night.

Malcolm says Kiwi Gas is as ‘Kiwi As’, ‘fast as’, ‘easy as’ and

‘sweet as’; descriptors that ring true given their reputation for high

quality fast turnaround service and active community support.

“New customers regularly say, the reason they now use us to

supply their gas, is because they’ve heard of our great service,”

adds Malcolm.

Kiwi Gas is located at 37 Shands Road in Hornby. Call 0800

166 619, email: needgas@kiwigas.co.nz or order on-line at:

Backyard critters

Craneflies are important

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

A LARGE long-legged fly that

appears inside your house are

sometimes called daddy longlegs,

a common name shared with

cellar spiders and harvestman.

The difference is that craneflies

have six legs and the other two

species are arachnids that have

eight legs.

Craneflies are in the Tipulidae

family, the most diverse family

of flies consisting of about 15,000

species worldwide.

In New Zealand there are at

least 600 cranefly species and can

vary in size depending on the

species, with the largest being

30mm long.

Cranefly larvae, sometimes

called leatherjackets, have long

cylindrical bodies and often

live in soil and moist or rotting

vegetative material.

They perform important

ecosystem services of breaking

down organic matter and

increasing microbial activity in

the soil.

Both adults and larvae are

valuable prey for many animals,

but especially birds.

A common green cranefly endemic

to New Zealand is called

Chlorotipula albistigma.

Larvae of this species burrow

Financial surplus for

Lincoln University

A FINANCIAL surplus for

the first time in a decade and

a comprehensive ongoing

programme of organisational

change are two of the reasons

behind a significant turnaround

at Lincoln University.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor

Robin Pollard, said the progress

in returning Lincoln University

to profitability is the result of a

clear strategy, strong leadership

and sustained team work at

every level of the organisation.

“In February 2016, a review

jointly commissioned by the

Tertiary Education Commission

and Lincoln University was

announced, to consider ways to

ensure the university’s future.

This was extremely useful in

focusing minds,” he said.

The report entitled Strategic

Options Assessment was completed

by EY (formerly Ernst &

Young), and received by Lincoln

University’s council in mid-2016.

The Refreshing Lincoln initiative

began in August 2016 which

addressed a number of the

financial, academic and organisational

issues raised in the EY

report.

“We brought together a new

executive leadership team in a

short period of time and they

have driven changes including

implementing a new business

model,” says Prof Pollard.

“This included establishing

an ‘internal economy’ with each

operating unit now responsible

for its own budgets, reporting,

and monitoring of their operations.

The Refreshing Lincoln

programme has also focused on

reducing costs, reviewing strategic

assets which may no longer

be needed, and work to improve

programme attractiveness and

increase student numbers.”

A transformation board was

appointed, with extensive international

expertise.

It is focused on a wide range

of options to best ensure that

Lincoln University makes a

sustainable and significant contribution

to New Zealand and

international land-based education

research. The board will

report to the Lincoln council in

October.

Said Prof Pollard: “There is

still much work to be done but

it is significant that at the end of

2016, for the first time in a decade,

Lincoln University achieved

a financial surplus before unusual

items which the EY report

predicted would not be achieved

for at least another 10 years.”

Sample the shops and cuisine of Seoul

• By Mike Yardley

WHEN I mentioned to

my Korean hairdresser in

Christchurch that I was heading

to Seoul, his response was hardly

reaffirming. “Why would you

want to go there?”

Sure, Seoul doesn’t enjoy the

reputational hype of Tokyo,

Shanghai or Bangkok, but as a

quick stopover or side-trip, the

city struck me as immensely

engaging.

Arriving into Seoul by fast train

from Incheon Airport, one of

the first imposing landmarks to

stop me in my tracks was Namdaemun,

the city’s South Gate,

resplendently restored after being

bombed during the Korean War.

The gate forms part of Seoul’s

old city walls, of which 70 per

cent are remarkably intact. Over

600 years old, the 18km circuit

wraps around the city core and

threads together the four guardian

mountains that keep watch

over Seoul. The city continues

rebuilding the missing chunks but

if you’re up for a power-walk, in

every sense, head to the Bukaksan

section.

The highest of the four peaks at

342m, it stands guard over Korea’s

seat of power and the summit

viewpoint overlooks the Blue

House, Korea’s splendid presidential

palace.

There’s a variety of royal palaces

clustered around the central city

including Gyeongbokgung,

Seoul’s premier palace which

has performed a Phoenix-like

resurrection, from the cinders

of destruction. It was from here

that the Joseon Dynasty ruled

the roost for 600 years, before the

Japanese muscled in.

A highly theatrical changing

of the guard is performed daily,

purely as a patriotic fist-pump,

around the entrance gate of

Gwanghwamun. The blaze of

colourfully-costumed regalia is

loved by the locals as much as

the selfie-stick toting tourists.

Gyeongbokgung translates as the

Palace of Shining Happiness, a

colossal compound of astounding

architecture, ornamental gardens

and vivid history.

It previously contained 800

buildings and 200 gates. The Joseon

kings had several thousand

servants at their disposal within

the royal household, including

500 ladies-in-waiting and 400

eunuchs.

Trying to get your head around

the sheer extravagance of this imperial

relic is best decoded with a

good guide.

I explored the palace as part of

a city tour with VIP Travel, who

run a great-value and illuminating

guided sightseeing service.

Perfectly perched in the heart of

Seoul’s cultural district, Courtyard

by Marriott Seoul Namdaemun

delivers a distinct experience,

with the carnival colour of

Namdaemun Market, right across

the road.

Just one year old, this engaging

property still has new-hotel-smell,

and elegantly furnished with all

the creature comforts you’d expect

from an ultra-contemporary

hotel. Wi-fi is free and lightningfast,

guestrooms are spacious and

the city views are electrifying.

You’ll enjoy 24-hour access to

the generously equipped fitness

centre, outstanding concierge services,

impeccable hospitality and

all-day dining at Momo Café.

If you want to push the boat

out, upgrade to executive lounge

access, where you can enjoy an

indulgent and exclusive space

loaded with privileges, headlined

by complimentary Happy Hour

drinks and meal-worthy bites,

showcasing a wide palette of

Asian culinary delights. courtyard.marriott.com

The streets of Seoul are packed

with culinary delights and a onestop-shop

for bargain buys and

great bites is the Namdaemun

Market, a frenetic night-and-day

emporium that sprawls for blocks

and is Korea’s biggest market.

Whether its clothing, accessories

or handicrafts, each section

comprises hundreds of stalls,

spilling across pedestrianised

streets.

The sensory overload is most

graphically illustrated by the profusion

of food stalls, sizzling with

binge-worthy things on sticks and

in bowls, which will soon challenge

your stomach space.

Best bites include odeng, fishcake

skewers seasoned in springonion

soup; tteokbokki, spicy rice

cakes that are revved up with redpepper

paste; and dakkochi, the

ubiquitous barbequed chicken on

skewers in a sticky, tangy sauce.

They are nearly as pervasive

as kimchi, Korea’s great staple of

salted, seasoned and fermented

vegetables.

Don’t leave town without trying

Korean doughnuts, hotteok, spicy

pancakes stuffed with sunflower

seeds, peanuts, red beans and

honey. Namdaemun Market is

centrally located in Myeongdong,

which is Seoul’s shopaholic

mecca. All of the global fashion

heavyweights are here, alongside

chic Asian faves and the templelike

department stores.

Pop into Mitsukoshi, the Harrods

of Seoul, and the city’s oldest

department store with an opulent

food hall in the basement. My

local guide told me that 20 pr cent

of Seoul’s women have facial surgery.

They binge on cosmetic perfectionism

and you’ll see a surfeit

of specimens in Mitsukoshi.

FAST FACTS

•I booked my side-trip

to Seoul from Japan

through the leading

global airfare comparison

platform, Cheapflights.

Apparently, the popularity

of Cheapflights has now

reached the level where its

website and app booking

traffic fills a 747 every five

Highlander true to Toyota ideology

• By Ross Kiddie

TOYOTA’S Highlander has long

been regarded as the quintessential

large sport utility vehicle.

It’s known for its four-wheeldrive

capability, powerful petrol

engine, seven-seat configuration

and high levels of refinement.

All of those attributes have

been expanded on with an allnew

model landing here early

this year.

The new Highlander has lost

none of its credibility, it has had

an engine upgrade – power is

up 17kW and 13Nm yet it also

gets a 1.1l/100km fuel usage saving

– it is now listed from a 9.1 to

9.5l/100km (31mpg) combined

cycled average.

Elsewhere, the Highlander

reeks of sophistication, it is

comfortable and has a wealth

of specification, especially in

Limited form as tested. Column

space doesn’t allow for comprehensive

detailing, but I can report

it wants for nothing yet it could

well be described as a value for

money model.

The new Highlander is also

available in two-wheel-drive variations,

there are three grades with

the range starting at $63,490 for

a 4WD GX variant, a GXL lists

at $66,490 and $70,490 (4WD),

while the Limited 4WD sits at

That’s top price for a car in

this category, but if you want the

epitome of sophistication it is the

SUV that sets standards in the big

sector.

As mentioned, there’s a new

engine in Highlander. It still gets

a variation of the old V6 that has

served Toyota and Lexus well, but

the new engine has an edge over

it with higher levels of refinement

and those performance increases.

It is now rated at 218kW with

350Nm of torque coming in at

4700rpm. Such is its smoothness

it’s hard to fathom with a

displacement of 3456cc all that

reciprocating mass could be so

unflustered.

engine is very lethargic turning

over slowly at just 1400rpm. I

spent a lot of time in city traffic

in the test car, so my overall

average didn’t match Toyota’s, but

when I took the test car back to

the dealership it was still showing

9.6l/100km (29mpg) which I

didn’t think was excessive.

I took the test car on my usual

loop west taking in a back road

from Sheffield to Coalgate. It’s a

badly rutted route, and from the

outset the Highlander impressed

with its suspension control over

the corrugations and ability to put

power to ground. The tyres on the

test car were a Toyo compound

(245/55 x 19in) and they extracted

grip well along with providing a

quiet ride on sealed surfaces.

The same could be said of the

entire vehicle, it sits on the outer

periphery of the luxury car market

so its levels of noise, vibration

and harshness are extremely low.

That makes for a relaxing highway

cruise.

The suspension is a complex

fully independent system, the

Highlander isn’t quite as rugged

underneath as its Fortuner

stablemate, but both are destined

for different markets, the

Highlander is a cross-country

charger, and is certainly not a full

off-road vehicle.

That aside, most won’t venture

far from the seal, and that’s why

front-wheel-drive only models

are available, but for those who

do want to take the family camping

to those high country lakes

the four-wheel-drive variant is

capable.

Toyota have been served well by

Highlander, it has been a popular

model here. That doesn’t surprise

me, it imparts an involving driving

sensation, one of solidity and

safety, the latter of course, five-star

Australasian New Car Assessment

Program rated.

The Highlander is sourced

from Toyota’s United States manufacturing

operation and reeks of

quality. It is the family-friendly

wagon which does everything

without fuss and always pleases

with its all round performance

and reliability.

Stay safe on the

road this winter

Safer roads mean sensible driving and

roadworthy vehicles. Winter driving is

more demanding due to bad weather and

sinking sun affecting visibility and road

conditions.

Adopt a common sense, defensive

approach to driving by:

• observing distance and road conditions,

having a 2-4 second gap to stop in time

and reducing speed when wet or greasy.

• driving slower on shingle roads to avoid

losing control.

• reducing speed on side roads when the

road camber/curve could affect vehicle

handling.

• showing courtesy by pulling over so cars

can pass when going slow.

Gardening

Window dressing

No matter whether your garden is big or small, there’s

plenty more room to grow on the windowsill says

Rachel Vogan

TIMES CHANGE and so do gardens.

This winter sees me relocating to a new

abode; a barn conversion. I have had a

seismic shift of sorts, going from a large

established garden to nothing. I am back

to the start-from-scratch scenario, and it’s

both fun and challenging.

Therefore, my crops this winter have to

be portable, productive, tasty and easy to

grow.

As there is little room for much outside

just yet, all my edibles are growing on the

windowsills around the new dwelling. It’s

almost like living in an apartment.

1. ROCKET

Where, oh where, would I be without

rocket? I grow both the perennial and

annual types and through winter the

serrated peppery leaves of the come-again

variety are one of my go-to crops. Either

sow seeds now or treat yourself to some

seedlings. The trick to keep the leaves

coming is to pick and harvest on a regular

basis. Not a lot of root room is required

either, so a plant will readily grow in a

takeaway coffee cup, if the container starts

to get a bit ratty, slip a new one underneath

the original one. Too easy.

2. BASIL

Yes, crazy I know, but it will keep growing

as a cutting in a glass of water over winter if

your kitchen doesn’t drop below 10°C very

often. And, so far, mine is chugging away

with plenty of vigour, mostly due to the log

burner, which is constantly burning to keep

the temperatures from plummeting.

3. PARSLEY

What a campaigner this crop is. The curly

type is happy as, quietly hanging out on

the windowsill. I use a lot of it, so it never

gets too leggy. Pinch the stalks right back to

the base of the plant to keep the new flush

of flavour-filled leaves coming through

quicker and faster.

4. LETTUCE

The frilly lettuces are thriving. Whilst they

can get a bit leggy if I give them too much

water, or leave them too long between

harvest, they quickly re-grow new leaves

once I pluck them or give them a haircut

with the nail scissors. I rotate the pots

every few days so as the plants retain an

even shape.

5. MICROGREENS

These pint-sized seedlings are just the

ticket in winter. They are bigger than

sprouted seeds, but smaller than salad

leaves. Last year I grew them for the first

time and this year they are making an

appearance once again. I sow them into

those shallow takeaway containers with a

few holes poked into the bottom.

6. ARTHRITIS HERB – GOTU KOLA

(CENTELLA ASIATICA)

This wee gem is sensitive to frost, so

it needs to be tucked up inside. It will

cope with a spot away from direct light,

especially if the windowsill is getting a bit

full with other crops. I grow mine in the

bathroom.

I grow this purely for medicinal reasons;

it helps ease general aches and pains and

has definitely helped reduce my blood

pressure. Some people swear it eases

arthritic pain. Two leaves a day does the

trick, easily chopped finely into a salad

or thrown in with the greens for a

smoothie.

COMPACT: Little lettuce (left) and gotu

kola are easy to grow in tight spaces.

Question:

Answer:

What can I do to look after my garden in winter so it doesn’t

get damaged by the cold and the frosty nights?

As we head further into

winter, it is a good

idea to make sure that

your garden and plants are protected from the chilly

temperatures and the frosts and possible snow. Firstly,

if you haven’t added some Organic Compost in the last

year, add a layer of that now. This will add essential

organic matter, creating a great growing environment

for your plants, and keep your garden in good health.

Next, choose a bark mulch to add to the top. Bark

helps to keep the moisture in, keep weeds down, and

maintain a more even soil temperature. With the drop in

air temperature, you want to keep the soil temperature

as even as you can. Plants don’t like the big changes

between cold and hot, it can put them in distress.

Choosing a bark is mostly a personal preference,

depending on what look you are going for, and how much you want to spend. Super Scree is a

popular choice for an all-round general bark mulch. Our Black Beauty is the one for you if you

are looking for a stand out on the garden. We would recommend having a look on our website

at what we have to offer, or better yet, come into our yard and see it for yourself! We have a

great delivery service available, and trailers you can hire if you don’t have one of your own.

New questions to be received

by Tuesday 20th June.

how much bark do I need?

Working out how much bark you need is fairly simple.

Measure the area that you are looking to cover (keeping the

units all the same) and then multiply the length, by the width,

by the depth. This will give you the number of cubic metres

required to cover the area. We would recommend a 10cm

layer to get all of the benefits.

E.g. 10m (length) x 5m (width) x .1m (depth)

= 5x10x.1 = 5 cubic metres of bark.

NZTA has now closed the original Main South Road entrance to Intelligro. For the

remainder of June, access to Intelligro is only available via the Curraghs Road end of

Manion Road. Follow Manion road along the railway line and you will find us where

“261” is on the map. Access from Weedons Ross Road will not be available until later

in June/early July while the contractors finish sealing Manion Road.

While these changes are out of our hands, we would like to extend our thanks to you all for

your patience and understanding as these changes take place. The new road will definitely

make things a lot safer for everyone, so we are looking forward to having it all completed.

Once the road is all sealed, you will be able to access Intelligro from both the Weedons

Ross Road, and Curraghs Road entrances. Our new address will be 261 Manion Road.

If you are travelling

from Rolleston,

or surrounding

areas and would

usually come up

from Weedons Ross

Road, you will need

to go along Jones

Road, turn right

onto Curraghs Road,

and then right into

Manion Road just

after the railway.

We are still open for business!

If you are at all unsure about what is

going on, give us a call 03 3479 415,

email us info@igro.co.nz or check

out our website www.igro.co.nz for

more updates.

If you are travelling

from Christchurch, the

best way to Intelligro

is to turn right from

Main South Road

onto Curraghs Road,

then left onto Manion

Road just before the

railway.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Supporting the community

While the name Harcourts is synonymous

with real estate, many are probably unaware

of the significant part this organisation plays

in supporting the community; something

that is at the heart of its core values.

Two goals influence Harcourts – people

first and doing the right thing. Stemming

from these values, the Harcourts Foundation

was established and so far it has helped

thousands of people in New Zealand and

overseas.

Any person or organisation can apply for

funding with health, schools, surf lifesaving

and many more having benefitted from

grants or other assistance.

Recently, the Harcourts Four Seasons

Realty (through the Foundation) supported

the school children in Kaikoura, when its staff

collected and assembled school supplies, with

every child given a school backpack loaded

with pens and books for the start of the

school year.

Locally, the Foundation financially assisted

the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra’s

programme where music was taken into

schools, giving students the chance to

hear orchestral music and learn about the

instruments.

Within Selwyn, Harcourts have been

significant players in funding the setting up

of the new St John centre in Rolleston, with

considerable fundraising carried out by the

Harcourts’ team who held events including a

public quiz night with a charity auction.

Harcourts Four Seasons Realty also have

a history of assisting the Hornby Rugby

Club junior division, supplying items that

a sports club can struggle to pay for such as

player jackets, duffle bags, promotional flags,

marque use and trophies for player of the day.

The Foundation is also primary sponsor of

the Harcourts’ Cancer Society Ball, an annual

winter event that will be held this month.

There are other exciting plans under wraps

for more support of key community activities.

Harcourt’s Four Seasons Realty has three

offices at Hornby, Halswell and Rolleston.

They specialise in residential properties, rural

lifestyle, property management and some

commercial, conducting business across

Christchurch and beyond.

Sixty people make up the Harcourt’s Four

Seasons Realty team, covering sales and

administration, focussing on Christchurch’s

south west and the Selwyn district. In the

sales team there is tremendous experience,

many having been with the company for over

25 years. Most live and work in the same area

allowing them to have an intimate knowledge

of the district.

They can assist people looking to buy or

sell a family home or investment property, or

with property management and are always

happy to sit down and chat with clients.

Tapping into their local knowledge and

expertise means you work with one of the

longest established real estate companies

in the area of the Selwyn district and south

western parts of Christchurch.

To find out more, contact Harcourt’s Four

Seasons Realty on 349 9919 (Hornby),

Building sites and sections

What comes first, selecting a house design or the building site?

RatheR than a chicken and egg

situation, the building site should

generally be chosen first. It does help to

have a conceptual idea of the home desired

including its potential size and important

features like plenty of outdoor living

space. address the details once a section

is secured or the location of the home

determined.

Sections vary considerably in size.

Smaller sections start around the 350

square metre mark with many in housing

estates ranging between 600 and 800

square metres. Larger sections around the

1,000 to 2,000 square metres, or larger can

also be found in some sub-divisions while

lifestyle properties and farms usually offer

plenty of room to build.

Sub-divisions often stipulate minimum

and maximum floor sizes for the

varying section sizes. There will also be

requirements on recession planes, building

distance from each boundary and type

of fences allowable, influenced by local

council regulations. Other factors will be

how the land is zoned and covenants such

as not having a caravan on show at the

front of the property.

It can be tempting to leap in and choose

a floor design before the land space is

chosen however, it is better to hold off as

the size and orientation of a section will

impact on the suitability of the house

design especially if the section is smaller,

narrow or oddly shaped.

The section’s orientation towards the sun

and direction of the prevailing winds are

Ideally the building site is chosen before the house plan.

also considerations. For example, it may

be nice if the morning sun comes into

the living area but only having a north

east outdoor living space may not be so

appealing, especially if entertaining in the

afternoon when a cooler easterly breeze

is up. It might also be nice to have an

extra seating area that is away from the

northwest wind which can be quite strong

at times.

Ideally, family living is most desirable

in a north to northwest orientation

though designs can be created that make

the most of any section. It might involve

stepping the plan in and out or having

two wings with a recessed area that offers

shelter. Fences and plantings might also

be incorporated to form shelter belts for

secluded and pleasant outdoor garden

settings and a private space fenced off for

a swimming or spa pool. The house might

also be set back from the street to allow

more off-street parking, something that

might also influence the size of the section

chosen.

Before deciding on a section, narrow

the options down to several that you like

then ask a designer or builder to look

at them to give their opinion on how a

house could be built for best effect, taking

account of the elements and the lifestyle

you want to have in your home.

Ideally family living is sited north

to northwest.

Match the section size to your

lifestyle needs.

Fences and plants provide privacy and shelter.

A design can be stepped to capitalise on sun and allow shelter.
