Over-60s

feature

in district

road

fatalities

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

DRIVERS OVER 60 are

involved in the highest number of

road crash deaths in Selwyn.

Statistics between 2012 and

2016 show people over that age

were involved in 19 deaths on

Selwyn roads.

Over 60s were also involved in

139 injury crashes with 56 people

receiving serious injuries.

Forty of the crashes involved

drivers over 75 resulting in five

fatalities and 19 serious injuries.

Police are now looking at a

strategy for older drivers to look

at where police can intervene to

stop older people from driving

dangerously.

Senior Sergeant Kelly Larsen

said the number of deaths involving

mature drivers are high.

“What I am seeing more and

more of is complaints coming

through about older drivers.

Phone calls from a general

practitioner or family members

saying: “Mum and dad have been

medically forbidden to drive,” she

said.

She said it is about discussing

with mature drivers there are options

without driving a car.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

THE DISCUSSION carries on

behind closed doors over the wheel

clamping signs in Lincoln (see page

3).

The district council and the cafe’s

owner are both saying little publicly

now after we exposed potential

trouble on the horizon over the

signage.

As we reveal today there is real

confusion looming for motorists

looking for a park when the cafe

opens next month.

There are district council 120

time limit signs outside the cafe and

adjacent child care centre which to

me says anyone can park there for a

maximum of 120min.

The signage covers 12 parallel car

parks – seven outside the child care

centre; five for the cafe.

But also on the three poles are

signs saying you will be clamped or

towed if you aren’t a cafe customer –

for all 12 car parks.

Confused?

Lincoln signs confuse motorists

THE DISTRICT council is

still considering legal advice

over the wheel clamping tow

away signs in Lincoln.

Two weeks ago the Selwyn

Times revealed the signage

had been put up by the new

Black Door Bar and Eatery

Cafe in Robert St. It is due to

open next month on the site

of the former Tea House.

But whether the signage

complies with the resource

consent is under investigation.

Neither the district council

would discuss where the matter

was at when contacted by

the Selwyn Times.

Said council environmental

services manager Tim

Harris: “The council is still

considering legal advice and is

working with the owner of the

Black Door Bar and Eatery

to try and resolve this issue.

We don’t have any further

comments to make while we

are in discussions with the

owner on this issue.”

The parties met last

Wednesday.

Owner Anita Alder said

she was waiting on the

district council to make a

response from the meeting

and would not comment on

the issue for now.

Lincoln people spoken to

by the Selwyn Times said they

were confused by the signage.

The cafe posted warnings it

could clamp or tow vehicles

not being used by customers

parked outside of its Robert

St premises and adjacent the

Lincoln Village Pre-School

and Nursery.

But the signage is on district

council poles where there

are also 120min maximum

parking signs. People said

they believed they could park

there even if they weren’t cafe

customers – but would be

reluctant to risk in case they

were clamped or towed away.

The cafe has five parallel

parks and the child care centre

seven car parks on Robert

St.

Last week some of

the clamping signage

disappeared, but they have

returned.

Have your say

What do you think of

the clamping signage?

Recognition for student

•From page 1

She is now the first tennis player

at the college based in South

Carolina to win the national

award and was voted on

by all members in the organisation.

CoSida recognises the America’s

top student athletes for their

combined performances athletically

and in the classroom.

Williamson said the award was

a perfect way to finish her college

career after working hard to

overcome surgery she needed for

a meniscus tear in her knee and

glandular fever earlier this year.

She plays for the Newberry

College women’s tennis team,

known as the Newberry Wolves

and graduated last month from

her undergraduate degree in

biology with a concentration in

environmental studies.

Williamson was first awarded

an athletic scholarship to the US

based on her tennis results as a

junior player in New Zealand and

it was renewed each year based

on her athletic performance.

She has been in the US for

three years, starting out at

division one school Winthrop

University before transferring to

There are no plans to return

“I loved growing up in the

country – it has definitely shaped

the person I am today. Although

Man seriously hurt after

falling in fresh concrete

• By Andrew King

A MAN suffered serious

injuries after falling in freshly

poured concrete in Prebbleton

yesterday.

Police initially were told the

46-year-old man has sustained

acid burns, but it was discovered

that he had fallen in concrete at

Cathcart Pl.

The man was pouring concrete

at the property when the

incident happened at about

11am.

A St John spokesman said the

man was taken to hospital with

moderate injuries but those have

now been upgraded to serious.

Two ambulances, firefighters

and police were called to the

scene.

Worksafe has been notified of

the incident.

“We are currently making

initial inquiries,” a spokesman

said.

How concrete can burn:

When cement is dry it contains

calcium oxide, which is not

particularly dangerous.

However, when water is added

to cement, calcium hydroxide

is formed, which is extremely

alkaline with a pH of 12 to 13.

Normal human skin has a pH

of 5.5; therefore, wet cement can

produce alkaline (caustic) skin

burns which progress and get

worse without more exposure.

A worker may have wet concrete

on his or her skin for hours

without feeling any discomfort;

however, the cement is damaging

the skin microscopically.

Early identification of changes

to the skin is important so steps

can be taken to treat the affected

area.

Over-60s feature in district road fatalities

•From page 1

“New Zealanders in particular

have this belief it is their godgiven

right to drive a car and to

give that up is really difficult,”

she said.

The district council’s latest

road safety plan for the next 12

months also covers intersections,

drink driving, speed, motorcycles,

driver distraction/fatigue

and young drivers.

It is part of a national road

safety strategy spanning from

2010 to 2020 called Safer Journeys.

The strategy aims to have a safe

road system increasingly free of

death and serious injury.

It focuses on having safe roadsides,

speeds, vehicles and road

use.

The plan has identified mature

drivers as a high concern for

Selwyn on its risk register.

Age Concern Canterbury

projects co-ordinator Yvonne

Palmer, who runs the organisation’s

staying safe confident driving

course, said she receives a lot

of feedback from her participants

they did not understand the road

rules.

Mrs Palmer said there is a life

after a car with taxis, shuttle

services, families, mobility scooters

and options such as groceries

being delivered to home.

CONCERN: Many mature road users are unaware the road

code has changed.

“I am shocked at some of the

attitude . . . sometimes the older

they are the more stroppy they

are. People think it is the young

ones who are fast drivers, the

older drivers want to hold their

place,” she said.

Senior Sergeant Larsen said

many people have been driving

for about 50 years and are unaware

the road code has changed.

The statistics also showed 1283

Causes of crashes in the

Selwyn District between

2012-2016:

•Alcohol: 156 crashes

resulting in eight deaths and

40 people seriously injured.

•Intersections: 520 crashes

resulting in 12 deaths and 84

people seriously injured.

•Motor-cycles: 47 injury

motor-cycle crashes

resulting in five deaths and

27 serious injuries.

crashes were recorded from 2012

to 2016 resulting in 43 deaths and

177 road users seriously injured.

The three most common crash

factors was poor handling (33 per

cent), poor observation (35 per

cent), and people failing to give

away/stop (29 per cent).

Highest causes of road crashes

was intersections with 520

crashes recorded resulting in 12

deaths and 84 people seriously

injured.

Mrs Palmer said the district

council has made some positive

changes such as lowering the

speed on rural roads in Canterbury.

In 2015 the district council

lowered the speed limits from

100km/h to 80km/h on many

of the roads in the Prebbleton

area.

•Driver distraction/fatigue:

72 crashes resulting in

three deaths and 20 serious

injuries.

•Safe speeds – loss of

control: 78 injury crashes

resulted in 12 deaths and 32

serious injuries.

•Mature road users (more

than 60-years-old): 139

injury crashes resulting in

19 deaths and 56 serious

injuries.

Speed limits were also reduced

in Rolleston, Darfield, Doyleston,

Hororata, Leeston, Lincoln,

Prebbleton, Springston, Tai Tapu

and West Melton.

The district council-owned

roads are currently under a speed

review.

Speed and alcohol was also a

common factor for crashes at 15

per cent and 16 per cent respectively.

Twenty nine per cent of drivers

to cause injury crashes were

under 25 while 19 per cent were

over 60.

The new plan highlights

a number of measures

organisations including police,

the New Zealand Transport

Agency and the Ministry of

Transport will carry out to

reduce road crashes.

Stolen eggs smashed over cars

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PREBBLETON CAFE staff have

been left shell-shocked after eggs

were stolen from the premises

and then smashed over vehicles

in the car park.

The cafe was left to clean up

the sticky mess after a bold thief

snuck into its unattended storeroom,

stealing the tray of eggs

before smashing them over its

staff member’s

cars.

The incident

happened at

about 4.45am

on a weekday,

with staff oblivious

to the thief

Pete Stills

slipping into

the storeroom

at the back of

the cafe.

“I wouldn’t have thought anyone

would have the courage to

come that close to the door,” the

cafe’s manager Deb Agnew said.

Ms Agnew said the cafe will

not be leaving the storeroom

unattended anymore.

“It was just freaky someone

was outside that side of the

building that hour of the morning

. . . when we get here in the

morning we have to unlock

everything,” she said.

The culprit has not been

caught but police have visited

the site to give the cafe security

and crime prevention advice.

Ms Agnew said it was more

of a one-off incident and would

only look into stronger security

if the burglaries escalated.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said

there had been a few egg-related

incidents in Prebbleton in the

last few weeks such as eggs being

thrown at houses and cars.

“Eggs are cheap and a few of

them are getting thrown . . . it

is not a pattern but it has been

unusual,” Senior Sergeant Stills

said.

Eggs are not the only items

to be stolen lately with burglars

making targets of Prebbleton

School, a Tai Tapu furniture

shop and Lincoln houses under

construction.

Police are asking residents to

be aware of security after a spate

of burglaries.

Prebbleton School had its

shade sails rolled away by a thief

in one of its district councilowned

wheelie bins recently.

Principal Kim Alexander said

not only was it annoying, it is a

huge expense for the school having

to replace the sails.

Selwyn Times reported earlier

this month Tai Tapu Obelisk

furniture shop had a set of

distinctive gates covering a 6m

opening stolen.

No arrests have been made on

the theft.

“We are just trying to get the

warning out there to be aware

of your security, lock things

up, put things away,” Senior

Sergeant Stills said.

Maddie

arrives in

United States

• By Gabrielle Stuart

WEST MELTON teenager

Maddie Collins is set to arrive

today in a United States hospital

for treatment, after a longrunning

fundraising campaign to

get her there.

The 13-year-old has had to have

dialysis for kidney failure most of

her life, and learnt last month that

it had put so much strain on her

heart, she was at risk of a heart

attack.

In 2012, her father, Adam Collins,

donated one of his kidneys to

Maddie, but her body rejected it.

The treatment offered at the

The John Hopkins Hospital in

Baltimore would make it less

likely Maddie’s body would reject

a donated kidney, and make it

easier to find a match.

If she can be matched with a

kidney, the full treatment is expected

to cost about $350,000.

Givealittle pages have already

raised more than $90,000 for

Maddie.

Her mother, Sarah Manson

Collins, said the family had left

New Zealand for the United States

a week ago, but had drawn out

the journey so Maddie could have

dialysis and rest after each leg.

Times’ article on Rolleston’s

potential need for a

cemetery:

David Bellamy – My

wife and I have very much

enjoyed living in Rolleston for

a number of years and we are

both members of the Rolleston

Combined Probus Club.

This club has a membership of

Gardening

151 of which the average age is

76 years and 95 per cent live in

Rolleston. A number of us have

discussed this issue and feel that

because a large number were

either born in Rolleston or have

lived here for some time it would

be very nice to have our final

resting place here in Rolleston.

It would be great if the

Motoring

district council could establish

a cemetery in Rolleston that

provided for both burial and

a separate area within the

cemetery for ashes. The land

purchased on the corner of

Weedons and Levi Rds for a

large scale park would be an

ideal location. Although there

are other cemeteries in the

district it would be nice to have

one in Rolleston.

These are my personal

comments and not those of the

Rolleston Combined Probus

Club. I know you feel that we

don’t need it at the moment,

however, us older people would

like it sooner than too much

later as time is running out for

us.

Rob Anderson – There’s also

a cemetery at Springston which

would be closer to Rolleston

than the one in Shands Rd. Last

time I looked, there seemed to

be plenty of room for more plots

but the land may belong to the

adjacent church so they would

have the final say on whether

burials can take place there.

more than

1645ha of land and more than

95 per cent was privately-owned.

It was supported by councillor

Mark Alexander who said the

district council needed to be

“paddling the canoe” along with

it neighbour and suggested putting

towards $25,000.

But councillor John Morten

asked why the contribution

would go towards private land

and not public land.

He later told Selwyn Times the

ratepayers had put funding into

obviously firefighting and rockfall

work on the private land.

Deputy mayor Malcolm Lyall

noted at the meeting much

of the land is Department of

Conservation-owned.

The district council has invested

about $50,000 on rockfall

hazard remediation work.

Mr Lawn said a lot of people

affected by the fires were underinsured,

but the district council

had to weigh up how it spends

the ratepayer money.

“I would like to see a lot more

of the hills replanted and how

we encourage people to do that,

I don’t know,” he said.

Mr Lawn said he is working

with the district council’s

biodiversity co-ordinator Andy

Spanton, landowners and ECan

to see what can be provided for

the landowners.

Councillors Murray Lemon,

Jeff Bland, Debra Hasson,

Grant Miller and Bob Mugford

were recorded at the meeting as

not agreeing to the funding.

The Christchurch City

Council set aside $949,000 in its

Annual Plan 2017/18 for ongoing

costs and $345,000 in capital

expenditure for the Port Hills

recovery work.

The Banks Peninsula Zone

Committee (a joint committee

of ECan) diverted $35,000 to

the rehabilitation of Ohinetahi

Bush Reserve which covers land

from Governors Bay to Allandale.

No second

by the Lincoln Library and

A BID to get a second dog park in

Rolleston has failed.

The idea was discussed at the

district council’s Annual Plan deliberations

but did not get enough

support. However, it has not been

ruled out in the future.

Two future options were identified

for potential dog parks – a

space on Goulds Rd and a large

piece of land purchased on the

corner of Weedons and Levi Rds.

It comes after concern over closures

at Foster Dog Park to make

way for the Selwyn Dog Training

Club was raised.

Along with the concerns,

provisions for a new dog park was

discussed at the meeting.

The dog club closes the park 12

times a year.

Rolleston Reserve Management

Committee chairman Jenf

Christensen said the committee

have been lobbying for another

dog park in the township.

“It is a very popular place for

dogs and people,” he said.

centre.

The Lincoln Community

Committee is seeking to

place a significant piece of

artwork in Meyenburg Square

to complement the planned

Lincoln Town Centre Plan.

The square is encompassed

Service Centre, the Laboratory

and home to the weekly Lincoln

Farmers and Craft Market.

It is estimated the project will

cost $20,000 and $7500 was

granted from the Springs and

Ellesmere Discretionary Funds

Committee recently.

The committee has $9500 to

$2500 has been donated by the

defunct Lincoln Business Association.

The Lincoln Township

Committee’s 2016/2017

Discretionary Fund is planning

to make $6500 available.

It is yet to be decided if a further

$20,508 will be allocated by

2017/18 year.

But details are yet to be finalised

with community consultation

and the commissioning of

an artist yet to happen.

A district council report said

the committee would look at

a piece of artwork such as a

sculpture.

“With the new landscaping

going on there we thought it

might make an identity of the

township,” committee secretary

Pauline Hayes said.

She said the committee will

look at approaching groups such

as Down by the Liffey Gallery.

When Selwyn Times asked

about the cost of the project,

Mrs Hayes said it had not been

discussed at the committee.

“As with anything there is

always people who think it could

be better spent somewhere else,”

she said.

Chairwoman Kathryn

Claridge said the committee is

only at the fund gathering stages

Star Media scoops awards

THE STAR has been judged

the best of the best at the New

Zealand Community Newspaper

Awards.

The Star, part of the Star Media

Group, scooped the three top

awards – best newspaper, most

improved newspaper and it also

took out the supreme award

which covers newspapers, magazines

and websites.

Venetia Sherson who judged

the supreme award category said:

“The Star is bold in design and

bold in attitude. The Star urges

its readers to engage in debate

and reflect on the issues it deems

important to the community.

“Strong grass roots reporting,

and tight writing are the

hallmarks of the paper. It tackles

big subjects with a sure hand

and features a good mix of civic

issues, crime and community

stories.”

Mike Fletcher who judged the

most improved newspaper category

said of The Star: “The paper

is a cracker. It is a joy to read.

Judging by The Star’s pagination

growth, the readers and advertisers

like it and value it too.

“The Star is filling a vital niche

for news and views in Christchurch.

Every page is attractive.

Every page is interesting.”

It was a big night for Star

portfolio categories and

excellence winner.

‘The Star is filling a vital

niche for news and views in

Christchurch.’

– Mike Fletcher, judge

The awards come at a great

time for Star Media – The Star’s

readership has increased substantially

in the latest Nielsen

Build your next home

with Artisan Homes

Your local registered Master Builder

Home building is as much about understanding the

landscape and the client as it is the plan and the

materials. From our office in Rolleston, Canterbury our

small company has built a huge range of homes that are

distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective.

From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses

to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work

spans all types of house building.

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

reputation for constructing high quality houses.

An artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular

expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is

passionate about the quality results they produce.

With decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes

have worked in all areas of residential construction. There

are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom

home compared to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our

overall approach remains the same.

While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted

home building we also are renowned for getting the right

result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult

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

life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered

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

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

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

larger competitors we do have their networks and buying

power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective

results possible.

At Artisan Homes, our passion is building homes for

people who appreciate the work that goes into what will,

ultimately, be a home they love to live in.

Stopping elder abuse

in our communities

MP for Selwyn Amy

Adams writes about

addressing elder

abuse in the district

I believe here in Selwyn

we have a wonderful sense

of community and most

people respect and care for

each other regardless of

background or age.

When it comes to age,

the last Census back in

2013 showed that we had a

younger population than

other areas of New Zealand.

Only 10.8 per cent of people

in Selwyn at that time were

aged 65 or over, compared

with 14.3 per cent of the

total New Zealand population.

It will be interesting to

see whether this proportion

has changed much when

we have the next Census in

2018.

While most people do

love and care for their older

family members to the best

of their ability, there is a

growing awareness that

some do not. This issue was

at the forefront earlier this

month during Elder Abuse

Awareness Week which was

held from June 15 to 22.

Elder abuse can include

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

physical, financial or

psychological abuse. Often

elder abuse goes unreported

because people do

not understand or want to

accept that they are being

abused.

One of the reasons for

this is likely to be because

three-quarters of abusers

are family members or people

that the victim should

be able to trust.

These close relationships

can create a reluctance to

speak out, with many too

ashamed to admit that this

is happening to them.

My colleague, Minister

for Seniors Maggie Barry is

putting some excellent initiatives

in place to address

elder abuse and neglect and

ensure our most vulnerable

are supported so that they

can lead happy and healthy

lives.

The new services will be

focused on providing practical

help and strategies to

victims of elder abuse.

One such initiative is a

new helpline which will be

available from July 1 and

will operate 24 hours per

day/seven days a week. The

free 0800 helpline will be

available to anyone who

needs information or support

regarding elder abuse

or neglect – whether they

experience it themselves or

see it happening to others.

For those who have

access to a computer, the

SuperSeniors website http://

superseniors.msd.govt.nz/

has further information

on how you can protect

yourself and advice on how

to have a conversation with

others if you have concerns.

Elder abuse should never

be part of any society so if

you or anyone you know is

being treated inappropriately

by family members or

others, please speak up.

It is time to bring this

issue out into the open.

Youths to have say

on Selwyn’s future

• By Amelia Christensen-Rose

YOUNG PEOPLE are being

given the opportunity to

comment on projects and

initiatives in the Selwyn district.

The What do YOUth think

campaign is a Selwyn Youth

Council strategy to give young

people a say on the future of

Selwyn by visiting high schools.

The next school visit will be

held at Ellesmere College where

they will be asking for students’

opinions on the current bus route

for the Selwyn Link Project.

The Selwyn Link project

mission is to connect the youth

and public with the rest of their

district with two bus routes.

The routes will be Malvern to

Rolleston and Springs/Ellesmere

to Rolleston.

The focus of the youth council

has progressed from an eventsbased

model to include more of

a governance and advisory role

providing a youth voice in the

district council. All the officebearing

positions are now held by

youth councillors.

The youth council also has

regular on-the-road meetings.

The first was held in Leeston in

May.

The meetings include a public

forum where young people can

share their ideas. The next onthe-road

meeting scheduled is in

August, in Lincoln.

Bringing Lincoln a men’s shed

Pat Nicholas, 75, of Prebbleton, proves there

can be a busy life after retiring. With a heavy

involvement in the Lincoln Rotary Club, his

latest project is to open a men’s shed in Lincoln.

He spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding.

You are involved in a lot of

organisations, what project are

you working on at the moment?

There are several. I keep

thinking now I must not take

on anything else. The regular

organisation I am involved in is

the Lincoln Rotary Club which

I have been a member of since

1998 and in that time I have

done various things within the

club and I was president from

2006 to 2007. That year was a

particularly busy year and the

club did a project that raised

about $60,000 for The Bone

Marrow Cancer Trust’s Ranui

House. We did that with a

dinner and auction – it was a

delightful night. It blew me away

how much money was raised in

that short time. I was very proud

to be the president of the club at

that stage.

You were on the board of

Lincoln Community Care?

I have been up until last

month. I went on the board

in 2001. I had recently shifted

to the Selwyn area from

Christchurch and I felt I

needed to get involved with

the community as a rotary

representative. My intention

was to be there for two years

but I was still there this year. I

am not good at sticking to my

plans. I was the chairman from

2004 to 2009. I think the big

achievement is we were able to

get a new building. We now have

a purpose built building that

accommodates the three staff

and there are more nursing staff

at the end of the building.

The other community thing I

do is I am a Justice of the Peace.

I had a bit of pressure from

other areas to say, you would

be good at doing this sort of

stuff. I don’t know if I am good

at it or not but it is something

I have enjoyed from meeting

people who come to get their

documents done and signed.

Tell me about the rotary’s

current project, the men’s shed of

Lincoln. What stage is it up to?

Here’s a history on how it

came about: A retired president

of the rotary club was moving

off his lifestyle block who had

quite a bit of equipment because

he was a builder/joiner in his

working life. He offered his

equipment to the rotary club

and I said it sounds like Lincoln

needs a men’s shed. For about

the last four years we have been

working to get a site and raise

money for a shed. We now

have a site thanks to the district

council which will be down by

the Lincoln Rugby Club. It is

probably going to take a couple

of months.

Is it to give retired people

something to do?

It is for old blokes like me who

sits around at home and is a pain

to their partner and look out the

window and say there is nothing

to do. But if they go along to this

they have got other fellows there

they can talk to, perhaps do a

few projects they have put off

around their house. It gets them

out of their rut and brightens

their day.

It must be difficult for people

who have been working all

their life.

It is and I don’t think men are

good socialisers. Ladies go off

and have a coffee but men don’t

tend to do it. And I wouldn’t see

much excitement sitting in a pub

having a beer and looking into

COMMUNITY SPIRIT: Pat Nicholas was chairman of Lincoln

Community Care for five years and currently working on to

open a men’s shed in the area.

space. I think there are more

productive things you can do by

being at a men’s shed.

What do you think of the

Lincoln and Prebbleton

communities?

We are in a relatively new

subdivision and we got involved

in setting up the Hampstad

Lane Neighbourhood Support

group. It has been very successful.

I think it is a very friendly little

village and Lincoln is the same.

Lincoln is probably a bit bigger

so it doesn’t make it quite so

friendly. That is not criticising

Lincoln but it is quite big.

Has Prebbleton changed a lot

in the last decade?

It is a huge change since

we came here with all the

subdivisions going in. When we

bought the section the developer

indicated we would be the last

subdivision. They are still being

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

developed. I wonder where the

people have come from. The

population is growing so fast the

primary school is bursting at the

seams.

How did you end up

spending so much time in

Lincoln?

I got involved with the Lincoln

Rotary club when I bought a

lifestyle block at Greenpark back

in 1996. I had worked at the post

office most of my working life.

And with the changes that came

round in 1986, by 1993 I was

made redundant.

I was at the stage where I

wasn’t easily employable for my

age so I decided to have a crack

at having a lifestyle block. I had

been brought up on a farm on

the West Coast. We did that for

10 years and decided we needed

a life and not a lifestyle and we

came to Prebbleton. It was a

hard journey, I spent a couple of

years without work and finally

got a job with a company that

does suspended ceiling systems.

The new owners took me on as

their manager of the company

and I was there for about

12 years before being made

redundant again. That stage I

decided no more redundancies

for me and retired.

Where on the West Coast did

you grow up?

In a little farming valley on

the Taramakau Settlement. I

was only 16km from Kumara

but those miles on the gravel

road used to take half an hour

to drive. We had a school at

the settlement. They are always

talking about these openplanned

classrooms. We had an

open plan – just one classroom

for 12 to 14 kids. I then came to

Christchurch and boarded at St

Bede’s College which was a huge

shock to the system.

How did you find it?

Difficult, totally out of my

depth because the education

in the primary school was not

anywhere up to the scale of

other primary schools. I got into

the fifth form and left after the

first term. I started delivering

telegrams in Greymouth in 1957.

It is totally different now to

when I was with them. The mail

system has been overtaken by

the electronics. The day when we

went to the letter box is now well

gone.

You have travelled quite a

bit?

Started in Greymouth, moved

to Blenheim, Christchurch,

Palmerston North, Dunedin

and then back to Palmerston

North and to Christchurch. I

thoroughly enjoyed Palmerston

North but I am very happy in the

Christchurch area. People say

Prebbleton is a long way out, it

takes 15 minutes to get to central

city. Once the new motorway is

finished it will be much quicker

again.

ADVERTORIAL

THE RICCARTON MARKET

IS NOT CLOSING!

During winter, as expected, the number of stall

holders and the number of people coming to the

market reduces but we still get in excess of 4,000

people coming every week. One of the strong points

about the Riccarton Market is that both entry and

parking is free to the public”.

HUNDREDS

OF STALLS

Don’t believe everything that you

hear! Despite numerous rumours

the popular Riccarton Market is

not closing.

“It is easy to understand the confusion” says Craig

Murphy, President of the Rotary Club of Riccarton.

(The Riccarton Market is owned by the Riccarton

Rotary Charitable Trust and managed by the Rotary

Club of Riccarton). “With much publicity being

given to the proposed new housing subdivision

on some of the land currently occupied by the

Riccarton Racing Club people have missed the

point that not all of the land is going to be utilised.

Over the next few years land will be progressively

developed into residential sections along Yaldhurst

Road and Steadman Road and then into other parts

of the property.

It does not however intrude into that portion of the

land currently occupied by the Riccarton market”.

Plans released by the developers, Ngai Tahu

Properties, show the proposed subdivision being

done over 6 stages which when completed will

provide approximately 600 new residential sections.

“In preparation for the development the Riccarton

Market has reduced its footprint and condensed

the number of stalls available. The Racing Club

has offered other land closer to the entrance in

exchange for land surrendered by the market.

These new areas will be incorporated into the

market over time” advises Ross Binning, Chair of

Riccarton Rotary’s Market Committee. “By reducing

the footprint now we have been able to provide

additional parking for our customers making coming

to the Riccarton Market even easier. Over the

summer months we have been getting crowds in

excess of 10,000 people every Sunday.

The Riccarton Market has been in operation for

29 years. Over that time it has moved location

several times. From its origins as a ‘car boot sale’

located at the Riccarton Mall carpark, it moved to

The Bush Inn, then outgrew sites at Riccarton High

School and then at the University, relocating to

the racecourse site more than 15 year ago. It has

become an institution in Christchurch – described

by the Christchurch City Council as ‘an icon’ for

locals and tourists alike. It is the largest charity

market in New Zealand and with room for over

300 stalls it is arguably the largest weekly market

in the country. During this period Riccarton Rotary

has donated more than $3 million to local charities

and individuals as well as supporting other national

and international projects especially at times of

emergency.

“It is disappointing that people still talk about the

Riccarton Market closing” says Craig Murphy. “In

many cases those people are directly associated

with competitive markets around the city so they

no doubt see it to their advantage by creating

uncertainty about the future of the Riccarton Market.

Be assured the Riccarton Market is here to stay. We

have a secure long term arrangement over

the Riccarton Park site and apart from some

relatively minor redesign of the footprint over

the next few years there is nothing that will

change as far as our many loyal customers

are concerned. They will be able to continue

to come for their vegetables, meats, other

food items, hardware, tools, furniture, plants,

artworks, jewellery, cat and dog needs,

clothing as well as to be entertained by the

live music and stay and have their lunch from

one of the numerous ethnic and specialised food

and refreshment stalls located around the central

‘commons’.

Prebbleton win special trophy

• By Gordon Findlater

PREBBLETON HAVE ended an

18-year drought against Lincoln

to claim the Hayden Kerr

Memorial Trophy.

Playing on their home turf,

Prebbleton came out firing

in their 22-17 win over rivals

Lincoln.

“It was a great day at the club

with our sponsors day going on

and we knew if we put a good

performance on the paddock

we’d be a good chance,” said

Prebbleton coach Derek Todd.

Tries to Richard Ferguson,

Todd Henderson and Tim Murgatroyd

gave them a 17-0 lead at

half-time. Lincoln answered back

in the second half with two tries,

reducing the gap to five points.

The decisive moment in the

match took place 15min before

full-time when Prebbleton halfback

Guy Murgatroyd produced

a moment of individual brilliance.

Murgatroyd ran around the

back of a lineout from 40m out

and escaped the Lincoln defence

before running in a try which

took the score to 22-12. Lincoln

went onto score a consolation

try which earned them a bonus

point on full-time.

Prebbleton lock Greg Mitchell

was awarded the man of the

match award.

“He was colossal in the lineout,

his defence was sound and his

ball carries were damaging. He

had an outstanding game,” said

Todd.

The win was also crucial in the

context of the Ellesmere competition.

With Lincoln occupying

fourth position coming into the

game a win was required to keep

Prebbleton’s semi-final hopes

alive. They face West Melton and

Southbridge in their final two

games. The team came into the

season with three major goals.

They achieved the first goal

by making the top eight of the

combined country competition

for the first time since 2008. Next

on the list is to qualify for the top

four in the Ellesmere competition.

The third objective is to win

four of their five interclub trophies.

They have the chance to

Izone Success

Recognised

Celebrate Matariki

The Selwyn Arts Trust invites you to join them to celebrate

Matariki with a free Kapa Haka performance by Te Ahikaaroa &

local high schools. The performance is at Lincoln Event Centre

at 2pm on Sunday 2 July. This event is supported by Creative

Communities New Zealand and Selwyn District Council. Everyone

is welcome to attend.

The contribution of Izone to Selwyn’s economy has been recognised with a nomination for a

national excellence award.

The development of the Izone Southern Business Hub is a finalist in the Local Government New

Zealand (LGNZ) EXCELLENCE Awards. The project was nominated in the Crown Fibre Holdings

EXCELLENCE Award for Best Practice Contribution to Local Economic Development.

Izone is New Zealand’s largest fully consented and development-ready industrial park. It covers

188 hectares, with only 9.6 hectares of council land remaining unsold. Currently more than 70

businesses employ 1,260 people with a further 800 jobs forecast to be created when the park is

fully developed. The ports of Tauranga and Lyttelton have inland ports within or nearby Izone.

Planning for the site goes back to 2000 when the Council saw the need for land to attract

businesses to Rolleston and purchased a 130 hectare area of land for the project.

“Those that began the project can be very proud of the impact that Izone has had, and will

continue to have, on our district and the families who live here,” says Mayor Sam Broughton.

On the roads this week

The intersection of Hoskyns and Sandy Knolls Roads is being upgraded and a change of priority will

occur in July so that traffic approaching from Sandy Knolls Road will need to stop. Traffic delays may

occur and detours may operate while the upgrade occurs. Sewer line installation work is continuing on

Shands and Selwyn Roads – traffic delays may occur due to this work.

Levelling works are planned on Ellesmere, Southbridge Leeston and Rakaia Selwyn Roads. Cattlestop

cleaning is planned on Lyndon and Harper Roads. Stop/go traffic controls will operate at all sites.

Road works are planned on Algidus and South Two Chain Roads with traffic controls operating. Bridge

replacement continues on Jarvis Road with the road closed. A turning bay is being created at the

intersection of Dynes and Springston Rolleston Road, with traffic controls in place at this location.

SeatSmart recycling creates safer journeys

A new local car seat recycling programme is helping remove unsafe child car seats from use and

recycling the seat parts.

The Council partnered with Seatsmart in March to carry out a local trial which offered parents the

chance to have old car seats recycled at a heavily subsidised rate. The trial was due to finish at the end

of June but due to its success the programme will continue to operate in Selwyn. 49 car seats have

been dropped off at the Pines Resource Recovery Park since the programme started.

With the programme continuing, Selwyn parents can take their unwanted car seats to the Pines

Resource Recovery Park to have them recycled for a $5 charge (normally $10).

The seats are dismantled through Department of Corrections community work programmes. 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.

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.

You can find information about how to check their seat’s expiry date

at www.seatsmart.co.nz. 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.

Booster and convertible seats can be recycled through the recycling

programme, along with capsules, but polystyrene seats are not part

of the programme.

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.

Cross-council work recognised

nationally

Selwyn District Council has been recognised as part of a multicouncil

building innovation group spanning the Canterbury region.

The Greater Canterbury Cluster – also comprising Christchurch City

Council and Ashburton, Kaikoura, Hurunui and Waimakariri District

Councils – is the Building Officials Institute of New Zealand Carter

Holt Harvey Building Control Innovator of the year 2017 which

celebrates commitment to innovation in engineering.

Selwyn District Council Environmental Services Manager Tim Harris

says the Council is very proud to be part of a region-wide initiative

which is working toward collective benchmarks for Council building

control authority customer service.

“The cluster’s aim is to improve collective business processes

through common documentation, increasing the ability for software

to exchange and make use of building consent information sharing

across Canterbury.

“This joint understanding of the systems enables opportunities

for improvement, and enhances the consistency of customer

experience across the region,” says Tim.

The Greater Canterbury Cluster was established in 2016, in

a collaboration with the Ministry for Business Innovation and

Employment to drive a dramatic change in council building control

authority customer service. The cluster has explored how each

council controls building consenting, building inspections, build

completion, staff resources and consenting fees.

New fire service to start

operating

From 1 July 2017 Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) - a new

national organisation combining urban and rural fire services will

start operating. Selwyn District Council and other local councils will

no longer be responsible for issuing fire permits or responding to

rural fires from 1 July onwards.

Local volunteer fire brigades will continue to respond to fires but they

will now be part of the new FENZ organisation. If you need to report a

fire under the new system you will still call 111, the same as now.

If you need to apply for a fire permit you can email firepermit.

enquiry@fireandemergency.nz or phone 0800 658 628. You can also

check the fire status in Selwyn by visiting www.checkitsalright.nz.

One function that will continue to be carried out by the Council until

1 July 2018 will be investigating complaints about vegetation which

creates a fire risk. If you need to report this as an issue you can

phone the Council on 347 2800 or 318 8338.

HOLDERS: Lincoln High School’s first XI footballers have

returned the Connetics Shield to their trophy cabinet after a 3-1

win over St Thomas. ​

Tough defence

awaits Lincoln

LINCOLN HIGH School face

a tough first up defence of

the Connetics Shield against

Burnside High School on

Wednesday night.

Lincoln reclaimed the Connetics

Shield after defeating St

Thomas of Canterbury College

3-1 at Christchurch Football

Centre last week.

Goals from Dylan Emile, Mason

Stearn and Caleb Williams

were enough to overcome St

Thomas who had held the shield

for four weeks after defeating

Middleton Grange last month.

Lincoln held the shield for the

majority of last season before

being defeated by Middleton

Grange in the final round-robin

match. Lincoln had a chance to

reclaim the shield in the opening

round of this season but were

held to a one all draw. The Connetics

Shield is the Canterbury

secondary school first XI equivalent

of the Ranfurly Shield.

Defending champions Lincoln

are currently second in the Connetics

Schools Premier first XI

competition with a record of five

wins, two draws and one loss.

Tomorrow’s opposition, Burnside,

are currently fifth.

A win will also cement a spot

at the national secondary schools

tournament in Napier at the

beginning of September. The

top four teams from Canterbury

at the end of this month will

qualify for the top 32 at the

tournament.

SPORTS

Perfect run continues for

defending SPORTS champions

LINCOLN continued their

perfect run in the Selwyn Netball

Centre premier competition with

an 81-19 demolition of bottom of

start the season.

They won all five games in the

opening round robin this year

and have now begun the second

round robin with three straight

wins.

They will put their unbeaten

record on the line against third

placed Greenpark on Saturday.

The two teams played out a tight

encounter last month which

Lincoln won 57-51.

Your Local Timber Merchant

From paltry to poultry

Wendy Megget says chickens can be helpful and fun in the garden,

and easy to incorporate into your backyard with these handy hints

Mention chickens to most

gardeners and they’ll throw

up their hands in horror,

picturing decimation and

ruin.

While they are busy doing

other things, their chooks

could be working hard in

the yard – weeding, turning

soil, fertilising and keeping

bugs at bay.

My first venture into the

realm of chickens was out

of pure desperation. With

a massive slug and snail

infestation, my goal of

growing organic vegetables

was getting further out of

reach. I tried all the ecofriendly

techniques, but to

no avail. But within days of

getting chickens, my garden

started to improve.

Not only were those silly

birds dealing to the slugs

and snails, but also to a

myriad of other unwanted

pests around the section –

aka big scary spiders. They

were turning over the soil

as they dug for more bugs.

Their poop was bringing my

compost to life. Best of all,

they were digging up and

eating weeds, then never

giving them a chance to

grow back.

I learnt to protect certain

crops as they ripened, like

berries and capsicums.

Seedlings also needed

protection until they were

strong enough to withstand

a bit of scratching around

the roots and were no longer

sweet and tasty.

Chickens are primarily

driven by bugs and soft tasty

food. Once I worked this

out, my new pets became

the garden helpers of which

I had dreamed.

COUNCIL RULES

Check your council website

for rules relating to keeping

chickens. Generally roosters

are not permitted in urban

areas. There may be other

restrictions such as the

number of chickens allowed

and requirements for coops.

SPACE

How many chickens can

your garden support? This

will depend on how much

area you give them, how

much supplemented feed

you provide, and the nature

of your garden. As a guide,

I have a small urban section

with a large vegetable patch,

and I wouldn’t want to have

any more than two freeranging

chickens in my

backyard. They receive some

extra feed and provide us

with a dozen eggs each week

during good laying times.

FENCING

A standard 1.8m boundary

fence should contain

chickens with their wings

clipped (an easy process

where you trim a few of

the long flight feathers).

Lower internal fencing of

about 1m can be utilised

to temporarily restrict the

chickens.

PREDATORS

When introduced to

chickens for the first time,

your household cat can vary

from mild curiosity to fullon

attack mode. Slow and

supervised introductions

are recommended –

having a hose on hand can

provide a clear message

and deterrent for even the

most determined cat. A

fully grown chicken can

defend itself against a cat,

but I would rather not

take the chance of injury

to either party. Dogs can

be a significant danger to

chickens – even the most

docile mutt can still possess

the instinct to kill small

animals. Predatory birds, like

hawks, can attack and kill

chickens. Providing plenty

of shelter from the sky, such

as trees, bushes or roofs, will

keep the chickens safe.

SHELTER

Chickens require a coop

with an elevated perch

and nesting box. Once

they know where their

coop is, they will return by

themselves at the end of the

day.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

Answer:

As we head into July, even with the chilly starts the days

often turn out to be sunny and a good temperature for

getting stuck in to your garden. Here are a few tasks that

can done in July:

Planting

Strawberries can still be planted now. Use our Patio

Plus for planting in pots, tubs, barrels and other

containers.

There is still time to get garlic and shallots in. Fresh

garlic is delicious, and it is pretty simple to grow.

Check out our website for our garlic growing guide.

Plant veggie seedlings like broccoli, cauliflower,

radish, silverbeet, peas and spinach.

Fertilising

Potted spring bulbs will start to pop through this

month. Give them a boost of nutrition in the form of

Intelligro Topdressing Fertiliser.

Is July a gardening-free month, or are there some things

I can get out there and do?

for more information, check out our website: www.intelligro.co.nz

or visit our facebook page: www.facebook.com/igro.co.nz

Thanks to sharon for her question.

This will help them to continue develop, ready to burst

into bloom in spring.

If you are planning to plant seed potatoes, give the

area you are planting in a boost by adding in Intelligro

Potato Fertiliser before planting.

General Tasks

Prune your roses! Best done on a dry,

sunny day. If you have any questions

about pruning your roses, send them to

us at info@igro.co.nz and we will get

back to you as soon as we can.

Protect your plants from frosts. Add

Organic Compost to gardens and layer

with one of our barks. This will help

keep the plant’s roots protected from

the cold. Cover veggie beds with a

frost cloth, and where possible, move

pots indoors if a big frost is forecast.

WIN!

a $50

INTEllIgrO gIfT

VOuchEr!

Just remember

If the ground is too wet

to work with, just leave it

until it dries up a bit.

Once the soil is a bit less

boggy, then you can add

the compost and lightly

fork it through.

Send us your

question and

Travel

Put your taste buds to the test in Tokyo

• By Mike Yardley

ON ARRIVAL in Tokyo, I was

looking for a sure-fire way to blitz

the jet-lag.

The sensory onslaught of

Tsukiji Market fitted the bill perfectly,

as I revelled in the colour,

the cacophony and organised

chaos of the world’s largest seafood

market.

Spanning the size of 430 rugby

fields, the market metrics are

gob-smacking. It’s the stomping

ground for 50,000 workers, where

over 1700 stalls sell 2000-tonnes

of seafood daily, in 480 varieties.

This grand encounter with

the kitchen of Japan groans

with polystyrene crates proudly

splayed with every marketable sea

creature – including whale meat.

Fancy watching the daily Tuna

Auction? You’ll need to get here

at the ungodly hour of 3am, to

score a visitor’s slot in the tuna

auction room. The dealing is all

done by 6.30am.

Humming with post-auction

activity, later in the morning, a

veritable army of workers hauled

freshly sold fish on fork-lifts,

hand-carts and “turret trucks”,

like speed-freak bees in a choreographed

hive. I gazed in awe of

hulking blue-fin tuna the size of

SELECTION: Seafood for sale at the Tsukiji Market.

refrigerators.

Half of Tokyo seemed to be

out sampling and shopping. It’s a

riveting introduction to the core

ingredients in Japanese cuisine

and the ebullient vendors happily

hand-out free tastings. I grazed

on seaweed, benito shavings,

dumplings in soybean flour,

smoked fish and kimchee squid.

Best of all, Tsukiji’s quintessential

sushi restaurants offer

the freshest raw fish fix possible.

My tour group headed for Sushi

Daiwa, situated next to Sushi Dai,

which are the two famous sushi

houses. Their pilgrimage-like

pulling power means you may

well find yourself queuing outside

for several hours. We lucked in,

with only a 15min wait.

Although they staff are too polite

to say so, you are expected to

eat and run at these sushi counters.

Alongside the delectable

slivers of tuna draped over a bed

of rice, we noshed on congee reel,

sea urchin and that celebrated

Japanese delight, tamagoyaki, egg

omelette roll.

If you’re sizing up one big

blow-out in Tokyo, the Park

Hyatt is the pinnacle of high-end

hospitality.

BUSY: Eat fresh raw fish at Sushi Daiwa.

The city’s most decorated hotel

is the Park Hyatt which graces the

upper-levels of a Kenzo Tangedesigned

high-rise, lording over

west Shinjuku.

Considered the father of

modern Japanese architecture,

he was the master planner for

the rebuilding of Hiroshima after

World War 2. With the hotel

floors beginning on the 41st level

with the glass-walled reception,

you can be assured your

accommodation will be dressed

with a sweeping panorama of the

neon-drenched, sky-scrapered

expanse of Tokyo.

HIGH-END: Experience panoramic

views from a room at

the Park Hyatt.

Service is ultra-attentive without

being starchy. Whether you’re

staying in-house or not, the dining

destinations are unmissable.

SOUTHERN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

Academic or practical? We have a course for you!

Backyard Critters

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:

THE ROBBER fly (Neoitamus melanopogon)

is a common predator found in

sunny clearings around New Zealand.

It is a native species about 18-23mm in

length and often perches on vegetation,

waiting for a prospective victim to capture

in-flight.

They catch prey as large as themselves

with their long legs fitted with large

bristles and claws adapted for holding

RUTHLESS:

The robber fly

catches prey

as large as

themselves. ​

Ruthless predators

them.

They inject a neurotoxin that

immobilises the prey and digestive

enzymes that dissolve the body tissue that

is then sucked out.

Like all flies, this species has halteres

which are dumb-bell like modified hind

wings that help balance during flight.

However, in this case, the halteres are a

conspicuous bright yellow colour. Males

are easily identified by their distinctive,

large genital bulb at the end of their

abdomen.

Robber fly eggs are laid in soil or on

plants, where emerging larvae feed on

rotting vegetation.

This role, along with its predatory

adults, make this species important in the

ecosystem.

Belt and Road Forum

for Future Cooperation

The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation

(BRF) which was concluded in May 14-15 outlined the

roadmap for the success of the Belt and Road Initiative.

Twenty-nine foreign heads of state and government

attended the forum.

Other delegates included officials, entrepreneurs, financiers

and media from over 130 countries and regions, which are

home to more than two thirds of the world’s population

and their combined gross domestic product accounts for

90 percent of the world’s total. The second BRF will be held

in China in 2019.

The forum yielded a list of outcomes, which included 76

consensuses comprising more than 270 detailed results in

five key areas, namely policy, infrastructure, trade, financial

and people-to-people connectivity.

It sent a positive signal for all parties to work together

to build a community of shared future, which would be

extremely important for China and the world.

Large Investment Demand

A joint communiqué was issued at the forum, vowing

to work on a long-term, stable and sustainable financing

system, as well as to enhance financial infrastructure

connectivity, by exploring new finance models, platforms

and services. The projects will require innovative financing

mechanisms -- a mix of public and concessional finance

and commercial capital.

Stronger Financial Connectivity

Meanwhile, besides the actual fund injection, future

cooperation would gradually extend from the building of

hardware such as roads and ports to softer sectors such as

management and services. Funding services and financial

support would be one of the service and institutional

improvements that would take more shares in the next

round of Belt and Road construction.

Nine Chinese-funded banks have set up 62 direct branches

and representative offices in 26 countries along the Belt

and Road as of the end of 2016, offering tailored services to

local clients. At the same time, 54 commercial banks from

20 countries and regions along the Belt and Road have

established branches, financial companies or representative

offices in China, seeking opportunities with the initiative.

According to the Guiding Principles on Financing the

Development of the Belt and Road, governments along

the Belt and Road should coordinate to provide favorable

policy environments for financing. The guiding principles

also suggest letting the private sector play a larger role in

the initiative, and encouraging financial innovation while

enhancing cooperation on financial regulation.

Consolidated Consensus

China aims to work with other countries to build the

Belt and Road into an open platform of cooperation and

a solution for challenges, including a lack of new growth

drivers, development imbalance and terrorism. President

Xi Jinping said China hoped to create a big family of

harmonious co-existence, and the pursuit of the Belt and

Road will not resort to outdated geopolitical manoeuvring.

To ease concerns, Xi said China has no intention of

interfering in internal affairs of other countries, exporting

its social system and model of development, or imposing

its will on others.

accounting for 8.5 percent of total overseas investment

made by Chinese enterprises.

The Chinese President in his speech also mentioned China

will expand China-Europe railway cargo services and

establish new mechanisms, including a liaison office for

the forum’s follow-up activities and a research centre. With

coordinated and sustained collaboration among all parties

concerned, the forum will mark the start of the Belt and

Road 2.0.

Opportunities for New Zealand

Attending the forum showed that New Zealand wanted to

be part of the discussion. New Zealand and China signed a

ground-breaking memorandum of understanding on Belt

and Road Initiative in March. The longer-term target is to

work with China to develop a plan on how New Zealand

can participate and contribute to the initiative.

One of the eye-catching outcomes of the forum was China’s

hefty financial support to advance the initiative, including

an additional 100 billion yuan (14.5 billion U.S. dollars) to

the Silk Road Fund.

China will also encourage its financial institutions to

conduct overseas yuan fund businesses with an estimated

amount of about 300 billion yuan. China’s decision to scale

up financial support for the Belt and Road, after billions

of U.S. dollars of investment over the past three years,

underscored the country’s resolution to push forward the

initiative.

The Belt and Road will be open to all. All countries, from

Asia, Europe, Africa, Oceania or the Americas, can be

partners of the initiative. So far, the initiative has won

support from more than 100 countries and international

organizations, of which over 40 have signed cooperation

agreements.

Landmark Significance

The Belt and Road initiative has gone beyond vision and

become a reality, delivering tangible benefits to countries

along the routes. From Mongolia to Malaysia, Thailand to

Pakistan and Laos to Uzbekistan, many projects, including

high-speed railways, bridges, ports, industrial parks, oil

pipelines and power grids, are being built. Since 2013,

Chinese businesses have invested more than 60 billion

U.S. dollars in countries along the Belt and Road. The

investment totalled 14.5 billion dollars in 2016 alone,

Coming back from the Belt and Road Forum for

International Cooperation, Paul Goldsmith who is New

Zealand’s Minister of Science and Innovation, Minister of

Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment, said the forum

“was a very impressive and significant event.” As the head

of the New Zealand delegation, Goldsmith said during an

interview that he sees the Belt and Road Initiative as the

re-management, re-invention and re-invigoration of the

ancient trade routes. He said “The Silk Road is a starting

point and an expression of support for the open market,

reducing trade barriers, increasing connectivity across the

world. He said that as a small trading nation, New Zealand

“obviously has a keen interest on all those things” and

New Zealand is well aware of the opportunities that China

provide especially for bilateral trade.

Being Minister of Science and Innovation, Mr. Goldsmith

is particularly interested in the themes of the Belt and

Road Initiative on innovation, which is the particular

field that New Zealand is focused on. New Zealand is

also looking into how the two countries can continue to

work together on innovation in many fields. New Zealand

universities have long time relationships with Chinese

leading universities. Mr. Goldsmith said that there’s a good

prospect for New Zealand and China to further develop

science connections under the Belt and Road Initiative.

SELWYN TIMES

Parents of Year 6 students are

encouraged to take a good

look at their child’s full primary

school when choosing

schooling for 2018.

Why change schools when you don’t

need to? Full Primary schools are

tried and tested and have developed

in innovative and cost effective ways

since their inception in 1877. They

are as important to the provision of

education in 2018 as they were in 1877.

What makes them successful?

• They have evolved over time and have responded to the

different demographic changes since 1877.

• They are located in neighbourhoods; they cater for

families and respond to community needs.

• They are staffed by highly trained teachers who know

curriculum levels from Level 1 – 5 who have had the

same teacher training as teachers in other Year 7 and 8

school types.

• Teachers in the student’s current full primary school

know about individual students learning progress and

learning style from Year 1 – 8.

• Developing the whole child, flexibility, nurture,

innovation and child centred learning sum up full primary

schools.

• Year 7 and 8 students are the leaders and role models

along with the adults in a full primary school with

opportunities to nurture Year 1 – 6 students.

• School organisation in a full primary school fits the

needs of students not the timetable.

• All Year 7 and 8 students are included in leadership

opportunities, sporting opportunities, school community

job opportunities, buddy responsibilities and role model

expectations. They are seen by others in the school as

the leaders and younger students look up to them.

• These opportunities and strategies to build leadership,

key competencies and resilience are available to all Year

7 and 8 students in a full primary.

What does the research tell

us about the learning needs

of Year 7 and 8 students?

• Curriculum that is relevant, challenging,

integrative, and exploratory

• Multiple learning and teaching

approaches

• Assessment and evaluation programmes

that promote quality learning

• Organisational structures that support

meaningful relationships and learning

• Educators who value working with the

age group

• Courageous, collaborative leadership

• School-wide efforts and policies that

foster health, wellness, and safety

• Multifaceted guidance and support

services

• School-initiated family and community

partnerships

Looking at the above list it becomes clear that it isn’t school

type or school buildings that make the difference for Year

7 and 8 students. It is instead the innovative approach to

learning and the attitude of professionals toward this group of

students. This can happen in any school setting as long as the

leadership, teachers and non-teaching staff are committed

to the social and emotional development of this group of

learners. Full Primary Schools are providers of Year 7 and 8

education in every way that other types of schools are.

“Encouraging life-long learners. Expanding Horizons”

Our school offers…

And also

The research also provides insight into

what works for Year 7 and 8 students:

Ministry of Education by Dinham and Rowe

of the Australian Council for Educational

Research. 2007

• From the broader ‘teaching and learning literature’,

there is strong evidence that the quality of teaching

which students receive at all levels and stages of

schooling is of major importance in influencing

achievement outcomes for students.

• While productive and positive student-teacher

relationships are identified as an important

characteristic of highly performing schools

catering for middle years’ students, it needs to be

acknowledged that good teachers and school leaders

at all levels of schooling is what works.

• It is therefore debateable whether at least some

aspects of the philosophy and enactment of middle

schooling is any different from ‘good’ teaching and

effective schooling generally in all school types.

The literature is clear in advocating ‘middle schooling

approaches focusing on quality teaching and

enhanced learning’ rather than on school type.

Therefore it is what happens in the classroom to

support learning and what happens across the school

to cater for the specific developmental, cognitive,

physical, emotional and social needs of Year 7 and 8

that makes the difference. Not school type.

The research on middle schooling and its implications

to provide quality education to Year 7 and 8 students

is as applicable to full primary school as it is for other

schooling types.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

A powerful Chevelle

A long held passion for American muscle

cars was the reason behind Malcolm

Ryder purchasing a 1969 Chevrolet

Chevelle in 2010.

Malcolm originally heard about the car

from a friend in the United States, where it

was advertised for sale.

“The American economy had crashed so

the owner who was a builder may have been

short of funds,” explains Malcolm.

After some negotiation, the car was on its

way to New Zealand.

The Chevelle had been geared up for

street racing and only raced once however,

it meant that some parts had to be removed

before the vehicle was shipped.

“The front wheels almost came off the

ground and it was drinking fuel. The first

time I drove it to Oamaru to show my

family I had to fuel up by the time I reached

Ashburton with it taking five tanks of petrol,

there and back,” explains Malcolm. “You

could smell the fuel, it was running so rich.”

With the car geared up to deliver as much

fuel and power as possible for street racing,

some changes were needed. The vehicle

was tuned down which improved fuel

consumption. On a trip south, the car only

needs filling up when Malcolm gets to the

south side of Timaru.

Malcolm also replaced the suspension and

spent a good $25,000 improving the car, with

pretty much everything under the hood and

floor brand new, resulting in a value that

is now considerably more, especially given

that few Chevelles come up for sale these

days.

He says the mechanical side of the

Chevelle is very sound. It has plenty of

power, having been worked on by mechanics

who specialise in American muscle cars

with the result that it is a very

nice runner, though Malcolm confesses to

having been through some tyres.

Chevelles had a 396 Chevrolet big block

motor, which is in fact a 402 cubic inch

Jones Road Auto

7,000cc 7 litre

motor put in. It

also has a Holley

800carburettor.

Malcolm has

kept the Chevelle

as original as

possible with the

only aftermark

a stereo and

Mag wheels

alternating

between the statutory Mags and Foose

Legends, which his children think look cool.

“Car enthusiasts who see the 396 plate

on the rear diff and cut off valves below the

manifold comment on this,” says Malcolm

who loves the power and drag capacity of

the car.

Unfortunately, Malcolm had a life

threatening Jet Ski accident five years ago

and while he made a remarkable recovery,

has had little time to travel far in his Chevelle

so it has only done 1,500 kilometres on New

Zealand roads and he must now part with it.

He says there are some hidden goodies

that make the engine really powerful and

the car fun to drive, especially the ability to

open up the pipes and power off other high

performance vehicles.

“I stop at service stations and people come

up and ask if they can take a photo of the

car,” says Malcolm.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

A passion

for old

and new

Owning an antique or classic car is an

interest sharedby Simon at Rolleston Diesel

& Petrols. Lately, he has been enjoying

working on a number of older vehicles in

their workshop.

Simon grew up with the cars of 1970s and

has worked on lots of old vehicles over the

years, collecting equipment made for classic

and antique motors from tuning gear to full

running tools.

“I’ve always had

a passion for older

carsand tinkering

on my own,” says

Simon.

Simon will

complete a full

assessment of

the condition of

your classic or

vintage vehicle,

collaborating

with you on

the mechanical

condition, handling

and performanceyou

want for your vehicle

while keeping within

your budget. He can

identify the important work to be completed

firstand sort out the rest of the restoration at

a later stage.

“We’ve had cars come in on the back of a

trailer because the vehicle wasn’t running

well and after the work’s done, the owners

call us to say how amazing the difference

is,” says Simon who confesses to achieving

tremendous satisfaction from this work.

One of his customers has so much faith

in Rolleston Diesel & Petrols that he has

enlisted them to carry out the regular

maintenance and other major work on his

fleet of vintage and classic cars.

With so much demand for their

services, Simon is now looking for a

fully qualified technician who holds

a warrant AVI, to join his team.

The work is guaranteed to be diverse and

interesting.

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols is a multiskilled

repair and service centre, covering

personal or business vehicles from cars to

Utes, 4WDs, vans, light

commercial trucks (up

to 12 tons), jet skis,

Simon has worked on

numerous older vehicles.

boats, motorbikes,

ride-on lawnmowers,

motorhomes, buses,

and horse floats.

They will sort out

any issuesand have

your vehicle running

smoothly so it will

not let you down over

winter.

“We repair almost

anything with a

motor in it and have

the latest technology

to scan and diagnose

vehicle problems,”

advises Simon who promises

a quality service with no surprises when you

pick up your vehicle.

Their reliability and Motor Trade

Association membership, explains why they

have so many loyal customers.

ADVERTORIAL

South Point serves locals

and destination shoppers

Faringdon locals are enjoying

the handiness of their very own

shopping centre while others from

further afield are popping in to

check out Rolleston’s latest retail

experience.

With South Point almost three

months old, the businesses located

there are delighted with the

response they have received. Many

are now established with some

extending their range of products

and services on offer.

The post shop at Faringdon

Convenience Store and Post Shop is

now fully operational with packages

able to be picked up there.

Next door, Hooked Fish & Chips

is making its name as a traditional

English chippie where you can get

generous servings of delicious fish

and chips, made from fresh fish

purchased from the market each

day.

Diners and those popping in for

a coffee have kept the staff at The

Pedal Pusher extremely busy. It is

still necessary to book, especially

if dining on the weekend or in a

group. Monday quiz nights will also

be a fixture at The Pedal Pusher

from 3 July so if you are a budding

Mastermind, you might want to

gather together a team and give

them a call.

The Selwyn School of Dance is

now permanently based upstairs at

South Point in their purpose built

dance studio, with enrolments now

open for term three.

The boutique New Order

Clothing and Accessories store

has also been attracting men and

women who have heard about their

wonderful selection of well-known

label garments and accessories.

With shoes, wallets, belts and

jewellery also available, you can

dress yourself from head to toe in

this one store.

The professional hair groomers

at Hair 4 Men a Barber Shop have

brought their award winning,

environmentally friendly practices

to Faringdon. This old school

barber shop, where blokes can get

an old fashioned shave, naturally

composts waste hair. Wriggly

children are also sorted in the

special seats that have steering

wheels and DVDs that play while

the lad’s hair is being cut. The

affordable haircuts start at $12 for a

child’s cut.

A Pocket Full of Spices will soon

be serving tasty Indian food for

lunch, dinner or as a takeaway. The

restaurant fit-out is well underway

with its doors due to open by the

end of June.

South Point is a boutique

destination shopping centre where

you will find an intimate shopping

experience and unique products

and services.

South Point is located at 55

Faringdon Boulevard in the

Faringdon subdivision on the

south side of Rolleston; accessed off

Dynes Road (which runs between

Goulds Road and Springston

Rolleston Road).

PRIME LAND READY FOR DEVELOPMENT OR LANDBANK!

Deadline Sale. All offers to be presented on or before 5pm, 21 July 2017

This attractive parcel of 7.65ha of land in the

Leeston township is zoned Living XA under

the district plan allowing for the immediate

development of in excess of 80 residential

sections. Surrounded by the township on three

sides and having a parcel of the same zoned land

on the remaining side, this property is embedded

within this rapidly expanding township and is

perfectly positioned to satisfy the increasing

demand for sections in this very popular fullyserviced

town – an easy commute from Rolleston,

Lincoln and Christchurch. With Leeston currently

sold out of sections due to ongoing demand and

with no more development on the horizon, this is

the dream environment for the developer as there

will be no competition in the foreseeable future.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Selwyn strong in face of

slowing real estate market

Latest real estate sales figures show a softening in the market with

a slight shift in property prices to what might be more realistic

levels, with those selling property responding to a slowing market.

Latest real estate sales figures show a

softening in the market with a slight shift

in property prices to what might be more

realistic levels, with those selling property

responding to a slowing market.

The trend is less evident in Selwyn where

the number of properties sold, rose from 58

in April to 73 in May.

The median number of days required to

sell a property increased by just one day from

28 in April to 29 in May; a somewhat shorter

timeframe than for Canterbury or elsewhere

in New Zealand where the figure rose from

34 days in April to 37 in May.

The median sale price was also higher in

the district, climbing from $550,000 in April

to $567,000 in May. With the market said to

be slowing this could be a reflection of the

increased value of housing stock in the area

however, changes in the mix of properties

sold each month makes it difficult to identify

trends.

The type of properties sold from one period

to the next and diversity of properties within

Selwyn can lead to swings from month to

month, says Heather Clouston from Mike

Pero Real Estate.

“There’s a wide mix of properties and more

availability than elsewhere in the region so

buyers have more choice,” says Heather who

believes that people are choosing Selwyn as

it offers the opportunity to live out of town

while having an easy commute to the city.

Real estate agents are positive about the

demand for properties that are priced right

and offer what buyers are looking for.

Some of the easing in the market is likely

to be related to winter, a time when people

tend to go to ground with spring tending to

be a busier time for real estate activity. This

is especially so for lifestyle properties that

can look their best in spring and autumn or

for farms when there are rich green pastures.

Regardless, properties sell year round,

including during the traditionally quiet times

of Christmas, New Year and summer holidays

when people’s interests are elsewhere and

professionals shut up shop.

Heather says that winter is not a bad time

to sell.

“When well presented in its best light, a

property can still look good in winter while

fewer properties to compete with can create

buyer demand and more competition,”

suggests Heather.

Optimism in Selwyn has been the reason

for Mike Pero Real Estate opening a new

branch in West Melton. Branch owners, Joe

and Tracey Brankin have lived and worked in

the area for most of their lives and believe the

demand for homes there will continue into

the future.

The median sale price

was higher in Selwyn.

The newly opened second office in West Melton.

While farms

look best with

green pastures,

properties sell

year round.

Confident at auctions

Looking confident may be all you need

to be the last bidder standing when the

hammer goes down.

Does your blood pressure go sky-high at

the sight of an auction room? Chances are

some of your fellow bidders are doing all

in their power to psych you out and win

the bidding.

Securing a property isn’t just about

having the most money. Sometimes the

winning bidder is the one with the most

confidence.

They use psychology to convince

opposing bidders to give up, hoping to

make everyone else think they’ve got more

to spend than anyone else in the room.

Too often, says Bayleys auctioneer

Daniel Coulson, buyers have preconceived

ideas about how the auction will unfold

and have their confidence knocked when

it doesn’t go their way.

Two can play at that game. You just need

to get your strategy right, says Coulson.

Looking confident may be all you need

to be the last bidder standing when the

hammer goes down.

To be that person you need to do some

preparation. Make sure you go to a few

auctions first to get used to them.

Come bidding day, park yourself on

the side at the front so that you can

see everyone in the room and, more

importantly, they can see you whether

they’re at the back of the front.

“It gives you a vantage point and shows

the opposition you are bidding confidently

against them.”

“You are hoping that the other buyers

have a plan in place,” says Coulson.

Often that’s to start low. So if you come

in with a relatively high first bid, you may

rattle them.

“The lower the open bid the more people

can afford to bid,” says Coulson. So you

could knock out some of the opposition

before they even place a bid if you choose

the right opener.

Don’t start at $500,000 for a house you

know is going to go for at least $800,000.

Put an opening bid of $785,000 in, he says.

Immediately your opposition is going to

think it will go incredibly high and might

be unnerved.

Call each bid out confidently. “It shows

you are comfortable and in control,” says

Coulson.

“The more confident you seem the more

people will think you have done it before.”

It’s a really good idea to vary your

bidding increments, says Coulson. “If it’s

going up by $2000 bids and it’s below your

limit don’t be afraid to put a $10,000 bid

in,” he says.

“Your competition is always thinking

about that next $2000 bid and if you

change the rhythm from $2000 to $10,000

you show you have the money and it

changes where their next bid has to be.

Instead of $4000 more it is $12,000 more.”

Finally, if you’re a couple, says Coulson,

make sure you’ve discussed every aspect

of the auction before you get there. As

soon as you start looking at each other

or conferring, the opposition will think

you’re weak.

Presenting your home for sale?

The presentation of your home

doesn’t mean spending thousands

on an upgrade either! So why

wouldn’t you want to do everything

possible to make it appealing to

prospective purchasers?

Street appeal

The exterior of your home is the first

thing buyers will see, so the property

needs to look well-kept and inviting. Take

a look at your place from the street and

see it through a buyer’s eyes. So, cut the

lawns, trim trees, plants and hedges, add

some garden lights and place a nice pot or

plant by the front door. Ensure the house

exterior is cleaned or freshened with new

paint if necessary, hose down drives, paths

and fences, put stylish new numbers on

the house and perhaps buy a funky new

letter box!

Make an entrance

Even if your entrance or hallway is

small, you can still give it some wow! A

large mirror adds light and makes an

entrance look twice the size. Fresh flowers,

candles or a stylish piece of art create an

inviting first impression. Ensure floors are

clean whether timber, tiles or carpet.

Create space

Light, air and space are three key

factors in presenting a home to the

best advantage. Open up curtains

and windows and use lamps and light

fittings for mood and ambience. Arrange

furniture to maximise space and remove

items that make the room appear

cramped.

Fresh feel

Freshen rooms with new paint if

necessary, but aim for neutral tones which

are more versatile for buyers. Add a splash

of colour in cushions, throws, artwork or

a vase of flowers. Invest in a new duvet or

bedspread and always make the bed!

Clear out clutter

Storage space sells but clutter

complicates! Clean out your cupboards,

shelves and garage, and get rid of

unnecessary clutter. Buyers inspect

wardrobes and cupboards so tidy them up

and reduce the number of photos, books,

nicknacks on display – they distract

buyers, too!

Beautify the bathroom

Replace or resurface fittings if necessary,

but otherwise you can simply beautify

your bathroom with thorough and

fastidious cleaning, thick opulent towels,

a tray of beautiful soaps and some lush,

green plants. Invest in a new shower

curtain or laundry hamper, and maybe a

sleek, modern towel rail.

Clean clean clean

Cleaning is a mandatory part of

selling your home: have carpets, rugs

and upholstery commercially cleaned

and sanitised, clean drapes and blinds to

look like new, polish glass and furniture,

wash down all surfaces and fittings in

the bathroom and kitchen, clean all light

fittings, wash windows inside and out,

deodorise your home to eliminate any

odours from pets, cooking or smoke.

Outdoor spaces

Even a small patio, deck or terrace

can be enhanced with a café table and

chairs. Add some colourful accessories –

placemats, candle lamps, pots and plants,

and there you have an extra living area.

If space is not limited, hang a hammock,

string some outdoor lights, position a

garden sculpture or create a water feature

that buyers will love.

Hire a handyman

Squeaking doors, dripping taps, cracked

tiles, broken fences, leaking toilets or

appliances that don’t work are a turn-off

for buyers. If you can’t repair or replace

things yourself, then hire a handyman to

make sure everything in your home works

as it should.

Finish it first

Buyers want to see a finished home,

not one that’s still being fixed! So finish

everything before you list your home

for sale, then launch it onto the market

when it looks its absolute best – you have

nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Matt and Kim love spending

time outdoors.

So we designed them a home that

maximises their indoor-outdoor flow.

Build your next home

with Artisan Homes

Your local registered Master Builder

Home building is as much about understanding the

landscape and the client as it is the plan and the

materials. From our office in Rolleston, Canterbury our

small company has built a huge range of homes that are

distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective.

From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses

to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work

spans all types of house building.

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

reputation for constructing high quality houses.

An artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular

expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is

passionate about the quality results they produce.

With decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes

have worked in all areas of residential construction. There

are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom

home compared to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our

overall approach remains the same.

While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted

home building we also are renowned for getting the right

result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult

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

life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered

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

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

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

larger competitors we do have their networks and buying

power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective

results possible.

At Artisan Homes, our passion is building homes for

people who appreciate the work that goes into what will,

ultimately, be a home they love to live in.

Kiwi homes contain hidden health

dangers. Yet first aid for unhealthy homes

needn’t cost a fortune. It can make a home

more saleable as well as a healthier place

to live.

Many older homes are cold and damp

and sometimes have other hazards such as

lead-based paint and asbestos.

There are a number of steps to take to

make your home more healthy.

They include behavioural change, the

cheapest way to make your home healthier

is to open windows to ventilate.

If you’re out a lot, but want to increase

natural ventilation buy some security

window stays or locks that allow you to

leave windows slightly open when you’re

out. This can be a lot cheaper to buy and

run than high-tech systems.

If nothing else, insulate the ceiling and

under the house. The Energy Efficiency

and Conservation Authority (EECA) has

information on its website about funding

grants available through the Warm Up

New Zealand campaign.

By 1 July 2019 all rental properties must

have ceiling and underfloor insulation

Ventilation systems move moisture from

the air making the home healthier and

feel warmer.

Adding a sheet of heavy polythene

beneath a home can provide an efficient

moisture barrier beneath piled homes.

Selwyn Times

EVERY TUESDAY inside Selwyn Times

A heat pump will warm and ventilate

rooms in the winter and cool them in the

summer. Watch out for hard sell in this

market though and shop around before

buying heating or ventilation systems.

EECA suggests a number of different

options for secondary glazing, which is

cheaper than retrofitting double glazing.

Alternatives include DIY window

insulation, aluminium framed secondary

glazing on the inside of the existing

glazing, or acrylic sheets attached

internally.

The latest technology is Low-E films,

which are stuck to existing windows.

This can reduce heat loss by 42 per cent

says Chris Olson, general manager of

ThermafilmNZ.

Healthy homes aren’t just about

insulation and moisture removal.

Using fewer toxic chemicals can make

your home healthier to live in. Parents of

young children sometimes worry about

exposure to chemicals as do asthma

sufferers. As a result some buyers will also

be impressed.

Dust mites can make a home unhealthy

to live in. Use a hepa filter on your

vacuum cleaner or at least vacuum more

often and empty the bag between cleans.

Decluttering as well reduces the places

that dust can build up.

Mould spores can be very bad for your

lungs. If mould builds up anywhere in

your house clean it off as soon as possible.

If this is an ongoing problem consider

ways to reduce the humidity.

If your home was built before the 1980s

watch out for lead paint and asbestos.

Both should be removed by an expert.
