SCHOOL PATROL SCHOOL PATROL Have a Go Day will take place on Sunday 27 August between 12pm and 3pm at the Lincoln Event Centre and Domain. This free annual event showcases the variety of sport and recreation activities available in Lincoln and the wider Selwyn district. Nearly 30 indoor and outdoor sports, activities, games and challenges are planned. Girl guiding, CrossFit, archery, basketball, table tennis, bouncy castles, dodgeball and indoor bowls are just some of what’s on offer. Complete five challenges to get your Have a Go Day passport stamped and enter the main prize draw for a chance to win $250 in sport vouchers! Passports will be available to collect on arrival. Enjoy live music, with coffee and a sausage sizzle provided. Get spotted doing the safe thing! Is your child’s school signed up to Get Spotted? If so, they may get spotted doing the safe thing during the start of Term 3. Keep an eye out at your school for the Get Spotted poster. Children spotted showing safe behaviour when heading to or from school could earn a reward. Selwyn District Council School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler says the idea of the programme is to positively reinforce good road safety behaviour. “It has been developed to recognise learners that are doing the right thing in terms of road safety awareness, by teachers awarding a small token such as a sticker or wrist band.” This flexible campaign is available for schools and early-childhood educators based around their needs. For more information please email stephanie.hautler@selwyn.govt.nz or phone 347 2705. Relax and recover with hydrotherapy The hydrotherapy pool is one of the key features of the Selwyn Aquatic Centre. Maintained at a balmy 35 degrees, it is designed to be used as a gentle and effective aid for pain relief or muscle tension. It’s perfect for people rehabilitating from illness or injury, those who face challenges with their mobility, or for general well-being and relaxation. The pool measures 16mx6m, has a depth ranging from 1.2m–1.8m, has a wheelchair accessible ramp, and is supervised by lifeguards at all times. It’s recommended if you are using the hydrotherapy pool for medical reasons you check with your doctor first. You’ll need to bring drinking water with you to stay hydrated. The hydrotherapy pool is available for general use during Selwyn Aquatic Centre’s opening hours: Monday–Friday, 6am–9pm and Saturday–Sunday between 8am–8pm. For more information about the hydrotherapy pool or any of Selwyn Aquatic Centre’s services please phone 347 2734 or email sac.enquiries@selwyn.govt.nz. LEGO Clubs are coming to Selwyn Libraries!

For more details visit facebook.com/ SelwynDistrictCouncil/ Tai Tapu – a community on the rise It takes a community with resilience, enthusiasm and energy to regroup after a disaster and find funding for new local facilities. Community efforts towards the new Rhodes Park community and sports facility and play centre in Tai Tapu are testament to this. The construction of the Rhodes Park facility is set to begin in early August and is expected to be completed by June 2018. The new play centre build is completed and running, with a bit of landscaping to finish. Selwyn District Council Property Manager John Reid says thanks to the community’s creative funding and planning approach, a new facility will replace the original community hall in the township and the sports pavilion at Rhodes Park, both of which were outdated and suffered damage in the 2010–2011 earthquakes. “I’m full of admiration for what this community has been able to achieve through the development of a shared, future-focused vision, backed up by sheer hard work,” Mr Reid says. “A number of different community groups with different views have come together to develop a solution that doesn’t replicate an outdated facility provision model, but is future-focused and based on the community’s needs.” The old hall site in the township has been retained, and the Tai Tapu Playcentre has developed a new facility there which includes a playground that the whole community can enjoy. “The new community and sports facility at Rhodes Park will be used for meetings, social events and functions as well as providing a venue for local sports groups,” says Mr Reid. The Selwyn District Council investment in the Rhodes Park facility has been complemented by funding from the Rātā Foundation and An artist’s impression of the new community and sports facility in Rhodes Park. the Lotteries Commission as well as locally-raised funds.
