Man of

the

moment

Before stepping up to

kick the match-winning

penalty for Southbridge

in the Coleman Shield

final on Saturday,

first-five Shannon Donald

had one thing on his

mind.

“I thought if I get it I’m

going to be a hero and if

I didn’t we were going to

lose. It was one of those

things where you have to

take a crack and it paid

off,” said Donald.

He scored all of

Southbridge’s nine

second-half points,

including a kick from

over 50m, as his side

defeated Darfield 16-15.

Intersections

in Selwyn

among

the most

dangerous

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SELWYN intersections are

among the most dangerous in

New Zealand.

The intersections of Main

South Rd/Aylesbury Rd,

Main South Rd/ Dawsons Rd,

Shands Rd/Blakes Rd, and

Jones Rd/Curraghs Rd have

been named in the New Zealand

Transport Agency’s top

100 list.

One of the most dangerous

intersections, Shands/Blakes

Rd is ranked as no 10 in the

list, having one fatal crash, two

serious crashes and two minor

crashes.

The list, released by the

NZTA last week, uses data

from crashes between 2006

and last year.

Main South Rd/Dawsons

Rd ranked as number 38 on

the list and had three serious

crashes and seven minor

crashes. Main South Rd/

Aylesbury Rd had one serious

crash and nine minor crashes.

Jones Rd/Curraghs Rd had

one serious crash and six minor

crashes.

NZTA principal project

manager Geoff Griffiths said

the Christchurch Southern

Motorway Stage 2 project

severs Blakes Rd and turns it

into a cul-de-sac.

“This should reduce the cross

traffic at the Blakes Rd/Shands

Rd intersection,” he said.

The Main South Rd/

Dawsons Rd intersection is

also to be converted into a

roundabout as part of the

project.

NZTA plans to open stage

two of the Southern Motorway

in early 2020.

But Senior Sergeant Pete

Stills said police cannot sit still

and not worry until then.

DESK

“I THOUGHT if I get it I’m

going to be a hero and if I

didn’t we were going to lose. It

was one of those things where

you have to take a crack and it

paid off.”

Those words from goal-kicker

Shannon Donald should be

immortalised in Southbridge

rugby folk lore for many years

to come (see pages 1, 14-15).

Donald kicked a last-minute

penalty to win the match and

sink the hopes of a gallant

Darfield on Saturday. Reminds

me of another Donald –

Stephen, who landed a fairly

important World Cup goal.

It was a great day of finals

football at Prebbleton.

Hopefully, the teams had Mad

Mondays they may or may not

remember, if Mad Mondays are

still allowed.

Residents aim to solve

water concerns at public meeting

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WATER ISSUES: A meeting will be held to discuss water

concerns, such as the impact of the Central Plains Water

Scheme on Lake Ellesmere/Te Waihora.

RESIDENTS AND farmers

hoping to address ongoing

concerns over how water in the

Selwyn-Waihora catchment is

managed are battling on.

A public meeting with Canterbury

Medical Officer of Health

Alistair Humphrey and Fish and

Game environmental adviser

Scott Pearson on water issues will

be held on Thursday.

Fifth-generation dairy farmer

Alison Dewes, who is also an

ecologist and veterinarian,

Farmers for Positive Change

leader Rick Burke and Freshwater

ecologist Russell Death will also

travel from the North Island to

speak.

It comes after new group Selwyn

Waihora Water Improvement

Mission was formed last month

in a bid to find a solution to water

issues in the district.

Residents and farmers from

around the district have collaborated

together to focus on health

issues in drinking water and the

level of nitrate in wells.

Selwyn Waihora Water

Improvement Mission member

Mike Glover said the meeting is

not to be negative about farmers

but to look at positive ways

forward.

Concerns have been raised

over the Central Plains Water

scheme leading to the intensification

of agriculture and a higher

nitrogen load going into Lake

Ellesmere/Te Waihora.

In a joint decision by independent

commissioners in May

2010 on the construction and

Live Local

Support Local

operation of the CPW scheme,

it was acknowledged infants up

to six months who are being

bottle-fed could be at risk from

an increase in nitrate-nitrogen

reaching shallow water.

The report said: “The risk can

be avoided by sourcing alternative

small quantities of water

for the critical six-month period

from deep community bores . . .

TICKETS

FROM

BRIDGESTONE

TYRE CENTRE

CPW has offered this,”.

A CPW spokeswoman confirmed

it will immediately supply

alternative drinking water to

domestic dwellings that have

infants at the time of an increase

in nitrate-nitrogen levels.

Mr Glover said the community

is being forced to cope with

stresses they shouldn’t have to

and it is important people realise

what potential risks there are.

He said the group is not against

farming but the way the land is

being farmed needs to change.

In May, Selwyn Times reported

tensions came to a head at the

Selwyn Waihora Water Zone

Committee over democracy surrounding

water issues and the

effects of farming intensification.

As a result Environment Canterbury

has been running a series

of seminars to attempt to reduce

tensions.

The meeting will be held this

Thursday at the Lincoln High

School hall, 7-9pm.

Shared passion for the land

Lincoln

University

Students’

Association

president

Danyon

Thomas writes

about how the

image of the

typical Lincoln University

student is changing

The Lincoln University

Students’ Association’s

International Night will be held

on Saturday at 5pm on campus.

You’re all invited to experience

the cultures we have on campus,

so that you too can see what life

at Lincoln University looks like

now.

Student life is not all beerdrinking

and noise-making,

contrary to popular belief.

The classic Lincoln student

is changing as the university’s

land-based focus relates to more

RURAL FEEL:

Lincoln

University’s

campus.

and more of us who aren’t off the

farm.

We’ve got the highest ratio of

international students out of any

university.

This creates a stronger community

for all us, which is something

worth celebrating.

Many of our students are up to

some incredible things.

A group recently spent a

month building a pre-school in

Malawi; the university’s Handy

Landys group are continuing to

lend a hand to farmers across

the region; Lincoln student Sam

Bosworth won gold medal at the

World U23 rowing championship

and of course we are completing

research that will change

the way New Zealand’s primary

industries operate in the future.

Lincoln University has a long

legacy of providing brilliant student

experiences to generations

of graduates across the country.

This much has not changed in

Lincoln’s 140-year legacy.

There is something very unique

about being a Lincoln University

student, which is something no

other university in the country

can quite duplicate.

Our 12:1 student to staff ratio

might have something to do with

it.

The staff know your name,

which is all well and good until

you’re being called on by name

to answer a question you don’t

know the answer to.

Others say it’s the laid-back rural

feel that creates a community

feel that no matter where you’re

from you’ll end up belonging to.

We’re not all your typical

stubbie and gumboot-wearing

student.

In fact, they might even be a

dying breed. Staff and students

here have a shared passion for

the land, and all the things that

happen on and to it.

That’s something worth

celebrating too.

A reader responds to

Selwyn Times’ article on

the rubbish collection

system as the district

council works to stop

illegal dumping

Mary Nimmo – We need

recycling/rubbish facilities

closer to Leeston. Rolleston is

too far away. We need regular

cleaning of our street kerb

sides. Piles of rubbish end up

blocking the drains. People who

dump rubbish on the roadside

should be fined heavily and be

supervised cleaning up their

mess.

Readers respond to

Selwyn Times’ article on

a potential new kayaking

facility to stop people

swimming near an

irrigation intake

Kylie Schnell – I am

a 17-year-old who lives in

Darfield. I did Coast to Coast

this year and not having my full

licence or even my restricted

made it hard for me to do my

training.

I had to travel into

Christchurch to complete my

grade 2 certificate and go to the

Hurunui River.

I know a lot of kids who go

to Darfield High School who

also go down and swim in the

irrigation pools which I think is

dangerous.

Fizzy banned at school

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

GLENTUNNEL School has

taken charge in the battle

against sugar, banning all fizzy

drink from its premises.

From now on, low-fat milk or

water will be the only drinks to

be consumed by pupils while in

attendance at the school.

The new policy to come into

place this term has received

unanimous support from parents

of the school.

The idea was put into action

by school principal Dion Stechmann

after he was inspired by

Lower Hutt’s Randwick School

implementing the same policy.

“The key reasons are creating

habits for our pupils going

through life and awareness of

what is good for their body and

brain and awareness for their

learning,” he said.

Any pupil caught with a fizzy

drink will be asked to put it back

in their school bag.

Mr Stechmann said the most

important thing is giving pupils

an understanding of why drinking

water or milk only is a good

choice.

“What kids do outside of school

is their choice. We are encouraging

this in school and hopefully

that transfers to better decisions

outside of school,” he said.

BIG CHANGES: Glentunnel School pupils Ruby Lee and Fynn

Wyatt both think it is a great idea to have fizzy drinks banned.

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS ​

So far, the feedback received

by the pupils is that it has been a

good idea.

Both the Ministry of Education

and Ministry of Health are

encouraging schools to adopt

healthy drinking policies.

According to both ministries,

sugary drinks are a cause of

poor oral health and contribute

to childhood obesity and

LAwyERS

Type 2 diabetes.

“I encourage all schools to

take this approach and I am sure

they are aware of the benefits,”

Mr Stechmann said.

Dangerous intersections

•From page 1

“We have still got to deal with

the risk . . . we are trying to save

lives, change behaviours and

make roads safer for people,” he

said.

He said a number of improvements

had been made to reduce

risk around the intersections

including upping enforcement

at intersections, trialled advance

warning signs and decreased the

speed limit on Shands Rd.

“There is a problem in Selwyn

with people failing to comply

with stop signs . . . we try and reenforce

the message – stop means

your wheels aren’t moving,” he

said.

The Curraghs Rd/Jones Rd

intersection will be upgraded

as part of the project and is to

be completed for the upcoming

summer.

NZTA is also investigating the

Main South Rd/Aylesbury Rd

intersection for improvements

next year.

The intersections are ranked

based on the number of fatal

crashes, and crashes which leave

people injured.

NZTA road safety manager

Bruce Richards said the list would

be used to prioritise which intersections

should be upgraded.

ECO-FRIENDLY: Abigail Jackson is selling brightly coloured

reusable produce bags to fundraise for school projects.

Southbridge Primary ditches

chocolate for produce bags

SOUTHBRIDGE Primary

School has changed the way it

fundraises for projects in a bid to

support the environment.

Chocolate bars have been

dropped for selling brightly

coloured reusable produce bags

as a new way of fundraising.

Southbridge is one of

the first in the country to

sign up to waste-reducing

Christchurch company The

Rubbish Whisperer’s new

scheme, which aims to provide

environmentally-friendly

fundraising alternatives for

schools.

The 100 per cent polyester

reusable produce bags are handmade

in Christchurch and are

designed as a lightweight option

to take to the supermarket.

Southbridge teacher aid Carrie

Jones-Dakers said she is excited

about fundraising money in a

different way while benefiting

the environment.

“If we can teach our children

to reduce, or even eliminate,

plastic usage, then it will help the

environment hugely and benefit

them and the planet when they

are older,” she said.

The Rubbish Whisperer has

sold more than 13,500 reusable

bags across New Zealand and

was formed in 2013 by Helen

Rupp.

But to make it to the Netherlands,

Manaia needs to raise

more than $7000.

A grant of $500 has been made

by the Malvern Community

Board to go towards the competition.

Manaia, who teaches a hip-hop

dance class in Springfield three

days a week and an open adult

dance class at Zion Studios, in

Christchurch, first began dancing

at the age of three.

She travels to Auckland nearly

every month to train with dance

crew Rebel Youth, as well as

travelling to Christchurch, and

Nelson, where she trains with

Mia.

“When you love something

a lot you do everything and

anything to make that happen,”

she said.

She said her parents have supported

her dancing and she is

grateful for that.

Her mother Yerane Davies,

said she was proud of her daughter

and this experience will be

great for her team-building and

confidence.

For Manaia, she said dance for

her is like a form of language.

“I think it is really important

to have that and to be able to express

yourself through a different

form and being able to just feel

it,” she said.

As for living in Glentunnel,

Manaia said she wouldn’t have it

any other way.

“I love Glentunnel. The feeling,

the atmosphere to how

everybody knows everybody,

everybody is kind to each other –

I think it is amazing,” she said.

Allan McKenzie

Bagpipes help Rolleston man to

Rolleston’s Allan McKenzie, 48, helps run the

Ellesmere Highland Pipe Band and leads the

Canterbury Caledonian Society band. He

spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding

I hear getting

involved in the

Ellesmere Highland

Pipe Band cured you of

your asthma?

I started out when I was

12. I was told it was supposed

to help your lung capacity. It

certainly does. If I go to the

doctor now I can blow the peak

flow metre to about 750. I think

it goes out to 800. A normal

person can’t blow that far. It has

definitely helped me.

Do you get asthma attacks?

No. I used to suffer as a kid

with bronchitis and in those days

we never had inhalers so you just

lived with it. I did have an attack

when I was about 16. But from

that point on I have been great.

The asthma attack I had was

awful, I was driving at the time.

I wasn’t sure what triggered it. I

think I got wet.

Who gave you the advice to

go play for the pipe band?

Family. I had an uncle who

was good at it. My father started

to learn as well – it was in the

blood. Bagpipes are an awesome

option because you can take

them anywhere. You can play at

all sorts. I started in Oamaru,

but most of my piping time

was in Dunedin. I played for

Maggie’s Garden Show. I played

for the All Blacks at Larnach

Castle. I got to meet the Royal

Family when they came over. I

didn’t play for them – you have

got to be pretty special to do

that. I met Prince Edward.

What did you think of him?

I was pretty nervous. It was

a long time ago, but he was

like a normal person. Seeing

the All Blacks up close was

pretty special. I played for the

Government. It is amazing when

you look back at all you have

done.

What was the highlight?

I played at the World Pipe

Band Championships in

Glasgow. That has probably been

the pinnacle for me. That was

for the Canterbury Caledonian

Society Pipe Band based in

Christchurch. We had never

HERITAGE: While playing at the World Pipe Band

Championships in Glasgow Allan McKenzie visited the

Applecross peninsula, where his ancestors are from.

been out of New Zealand –

pretty amazing. It was about

three years ago. New Zealand

has a great reputation for

producing good bagpipers.

Why is that?

We have a good infrastructure.

I am involved in a trust where we

send people over to Scotland to

learn. Then they come back and

they teach here. Everyone has got

to start somewhere. There is the

Rolleston Piping and Drumming

School. I help them out the best

I can. I have also taken over the

Canterbury Caledonian Society

Pipe Band as pipe manager based

in Christchurch.

Does your family have their

own tartan?

There is a McKenzie tartan

and I do wear that. I am very

proud of that. In fact, when we

went over to the world champs,

we visited where the McKenzies

came from. They are from the

Scottish Highlands. I played

the bagpipes on the hills. It was

quite an eerie feeling so I got out

of the car and had a tune. It was

lucky we had a wee bit of family

history. Applecross is where our

family is from but I am Kiwi

born and bred. That is another

advantage of being in the pipe

band – you get to travel.

breathe easy and see the world

Do you enjoy a whisky?

When I was in Dunedin I did a

bit of work in tourism and we got

sponsored by Wilsons whisky.

They didn’t know my name so

they called me Jock Wilson – I

was always called that by the old

guys. I was brought up to drink

the whisky neat. Some of the old

guys used to say to me if it was

made to have water, it would

have water in it. The Scottish call

it the water of life. I was always

told by the old guys, haggis and

bagpipes go together and, of

course, whisky too. You always

toast the haggis with whisky. In

fact, I played at the world record

for the largest haggis at Larnach

Castle some years ago. They had

a world record for who could

make the biggest haggis.

Are you related William Wallace,

the Scottish legend?

There is a statue of him in

Dunedin, but no, I am not

related to him. But I have played

by the statue of him in Dunedin

a few times.

The bagpipes certainly need

to be played by someone who

knows what they are doing.

A lot of people haven’t been

shown how to play properly.

There is a school in the summer

in Christchurch for pipers and

drummers. The resources are

there – we’ve never had that

before.

What do you think of the

music scene in Selwyn?

The beauty about bagpipes for

younger people is you can take

the instrument anywhere and

play it. Could be a birthday party

or funeral. That is how versatile

they are. You can entertain

people anywhere. You learn

about competing, how to plan

and design. There is a saying we

have – the will to win is worthless

without the will to prepare.

The pipe band does lots of good

things for you – you meet some

great business people and because

you entertain, you get over

shyness quite quickly.

Does your immediate family

share an interest in playing the

bagpipes?

My wife is a highland dancer.

We have been married 28 years.

Both of our kids have been

brought up with the bagpipes.

In the past, Callum has played

the base drum and Braedyn has

played a little bit on the bagpipes.

I understand you help out

at the Rolleston Piping and

Drumming School?

There are bagpipers all over the

district. There is a hub of bagpipe

players in Leeston and then there

is a pod in Rolleston and there is

an idea to bring them together.

Rolleston has grown so much.

A lot of people have put in work

to get the Rolleston Piping and

Drumming School going. There

will be a lot of future bagpipe

players coming from Rolleston.

You have an interest in duck

shooting?

Yes, we don’t hunt for trophies,

we hunt for food. Canterbury

is just awesome. We shoot deer,

tahr, we fish for salmon and

trout.

Do you have a favourite hunting

spot?

I like to get up in the hills.

It gives me quiet time – it is so

relaxing. We go duck-shooting

as well and sometimes go high

up by the Rakaia – it is a pretty

special place. You can be sitting

up on the Rakaia River and you

can look up at the hills and you

can see the lights of Mt Hutt. The

most special part is going out

with my kids.

Where did you grow up and

how did you end up in Selwyn?

I work for a great company

called Foodstuffs. I moved from

Invercargill. I have been all

over the South Island actually,

but we have assembled here. I

lived around Dunedin, Timaru,

Oamaru, Invercargill and, in all

those areas I have lived in, I have

been involved with the local pipe

bands.

Pipes are a polarising instrument.

What do you think?

The neighbours don’t tend to

complain. They are a stirring instrument

there is no doubt about

that. But I have never been told

to stop. I wouldn’t be doing it if I

didn’t enjoy it.

Last run out together

for McIlroy twins

• By Gordon Findlater

THE RESULT may not

have gone in their favour

but Saturday’s Coleman

Shield final was a special

occasion for twin brothers

Scott and Blair McIlroy.

Loose forward Blair

brought up his 200th

game for Darfield on

Saturday, while prop Scott

played his 203rd for the

club.

The pair have been

playing for so long that

some of their teammates

were only beginning

life at the club while the

McIlroys, both 33, have

been playing for the

division one side.

“Some of them were still

playing midgets when we

were playing senior rugby.

Now we’re playing senior

rugby with them,” said

TWINS: Scott (left) and Blair McIlroy played their

last division one match together in Saturday’s

Coleman Shield final.

Scott.

Saturday’s final loss was

Scott’s last match for the

club. However, it will still

play a large part in his life.

“I’ll take on the job of

president at the rugby

club here for the next two

years. My knee’s no good

as well so that made the

decision for me I guess,”

said Scott.

Meanwhile, next year’s

division one side is

expected to once again

feature the McIlroy name.

Youth Council

funds on offer

The Selwyn Youth Council has launched a new Youth Project Fund.

The fund is available to provide support for groups or individuals whose projects, events or

activities help to strengthen youth wellbeing in Selwyn.

The total available fund established by the Youth Council for 2017/18 is $5,500 plus GST.

Ella McClure, Chair of the Selwyn District Youth Council, says the discretionary fund is one of the

first of its kind in New Zealand local government. “The allocation and administration of the funds is

completely at the discretion of the Youth Council, for the benefit of our peers in the district,” she says.

The Youth Council will assess the applications and distribute the funds as they see appropriate

at their monthly meeting. Selwyn Youth Council meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the

month (except January). Applications must be submitted by the 20th of the previous month.

The application form and Fund Policy and Guidelines document are available at the Selwyn

District Council website.

For more information email youth.council@selwyn.govt.nz.

Dunsandel regains its heart

Dunsandel residents turned out in droves to celebrate the opening

of the brand new Dunsandel Community Centre, which was officially

opened on Friday evening.

The building replaces the original Dunsandel Community Hall,

located in the township, which was demolished in 2012 after being

damaged beyond repair in the 2010-2011 earthquakes.

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says the $3.9 million Community

Centre will be a fantastic asset to the Dunsandel area.

“A project like this doesn’t happen overnight and it doesn’t happen

by accident,” he says. “It takes a lot of planning and contributions

from a number of people.

“This beautiful building is a testament to the dedication of the

community, with a total of $350,000 raised in donations, as well as

generous contributions from Rata Foundation and The New Zealand

Lottery Grants Board.”

The Hon Amy Adams MP performed the ribbon cutting, while

speakers included Mayor Broughton, Dunsandel Community

Committee chair Russell Dalzell, and committee member and

former Selwyn District Council Councillor Nigel Barnett.

The new Community Centre is a multi-purpose facility which will

be used by sporting and community groups, businesses, and for

events. It includes a multi-purpose hall, reception area, dedicated

meeting and training room spaces, along with kitchen and bar

facilities, an office and storage space.

Contractor for the construction was Arrow International.

For information about booking the Centre contact Russell Dalzell on

(03) 325 4252.

Water meters installed in Lincoln

The Council is installing water meters on properties in Lincoln that haven’t previously had meters.

The project is part of the district-wide rollout of water meters for all households on Council water

supplies. Most newer Lincoln properties are already on the water metering system.

Water meters have been shown to reduce water consumption as they link water use to charging – so

households that use less water benefit from lower charges, while those using more pay higher charges.

For properties where meters have been installed, there will be some changes to the way water is charged.

For the year to 30 June 2018, Lincoln properties will stay on the current system, paying a standard

district water rate of $391. This provides a base allocation 375 cubic metres per year (1 cubic metre =

1,000 litres). Households that use more than this in the year will also be billed for any water above the

base allocation at a rate of 44 cents per cubic metre.

From 1 July 2018, water charges in Lincoln will move to the same

system used in other fully-metered areas like Rolleston and West

Melton. From this date Lincoln properties will pay a reduced standard

water rate (currently $226), plus a charge per cubic metre of 44 cents.

For properties with average water use, the total charge would remain

similar to what they pay currently.

You can help avoid incurring extra charges by monitoring your water

use – see bit.ly/WaterMeteringSDC for more information and tips on

how to read your water meter.

Want to burn some serious calories?

Selwyn District Council facilities offer indoor cycling spin sessions that work your aerobic fitness.

Spin is a fun, low impact workout where you control the resistance dial and intensity, meaning it’s

suitable for all fitness levels. Working with great inspirational music and an instructor you will follow a

journey of flat roads, hill climbs, sprints and attacks. At the end of the class there is a recovery ride and

a chance to welcome your endorphin high.

Linda Miratana, Lincoln Event Centre instructor, says the classes are fun and effective. “I have

witnessed so many people get lean and fit from this workout” she says. “Twice a week creates results,

watching this makes my job so rewarding.”

This term Lincoln Event Centre has eight classes each week and Rolleston Community Centre has nine

classes a week with a variety of times available at both centres. For information on times and days

please visit www.selwyn.govt.nz or pick up a programme at the Centres.

Stage two of an automated irrigation system at Lincoln Domain will soon be under way.

The pop-up irrigation system installation on the back fields of the domain will begin in mid-August.

The fields will be fenced off for six weeks for the installation and to allow grass to grow back. We

hope to have these fields ready for the start of the cricket season in early October.

An automated irrigation system was installed late last year on the two fields in front of the Lincoln Event

Centre at Lincoln Domain.

This has made the irrigation of these fields much more efficient by being able to water the areas that

need it the most, and we have been able to conserve water by watering through the night when there is

less evaporation. While the Lincoln Domain is fortunate to have its own water supply we are conscious

of using this precious commodity wisely. This irrigation also reduces the costs of staff time involved with

operating the system as there will no longer need to be a manually operated system.

Groundsman Bruce Tweedy says the new system is a timer-saver, and is improving the quality of

the fields. “The benefits have been noticeable with the fields still in great condition due to the grass

cover and watering – any other year and the fields would be really muddy by now, it is also less labour

intensive than having to move the irrigator three times a day and shift it every night” he says.

Young Stallions to have a gallop

• By Gordon Findlater

SELWYN UNITED have the

luxury of giving some of their

wider squad a run in their final

two rounds in the Canterbury

Championship League after

sealing the title last week.

THe club gained promotion

to the Mainland Premier

League for the first time in

its history last week and are

already preparing for life in

Canterbury’s elite competition.

“We know it’s a big step up

and we probably need to bring

in a couple of experienced heads

because we are very young,” said

Selwyn coach Lee Padmore.

“We won’t be going up just to

make the numbers up, it’s not

the way we operate. We’re really

looking forward to see what

we can do and to see if we can

trouble some of the top sides,”

said Padmore.

THe Stallions host Waimak

at Foster Park on Saturday and

finish their campaign with an

away trip to Burwood.

“It will be nice to give some of

the really young boys a go and

to see how they go in the first

team,” said Padmore.

Selwyn have dominated this

year’s CCL and wrapped up

promotion with a 2-1 win over

Christchurch United at Foster

Park last Tuesday night. They

needed just a draw to gain

promotion but won the match

with a 91st-minute goal.

“I don’t think there was

any better way to win it,” said

Selwyn coach Lee Padmore.

As would be expected, the

celebrations continued long into

the night resulting in some sore

heads on Wednesday.

“I think a few of them may

have called in sick to work,” said

Padmore.

SPORTS

didn’t last long though. Selwyn

didn’t let their standard drop

at the weekend and delivered

another strong performance to

defeat Parklands United 3-1 at

Foster Park.

Lincoln Combined

in top form

ahead of CBHS

challenge

• By Gordon Findlater

LINCOLN Combined continued

their bright run of form with a

12-10 win over Marlborough

Boys’ College at the weekend.

They currently sit in 10th place,

and face an even tougher task if

they are to finish the season on

a high when they host defending

UC Championship title holders

Christchurch Boys’ High School

on Saturday.

Both Lincoln and Marlborough

struggled to find their feet in

blustery conditions at Lincoln on

Saturday. The home side scored

the only points of the first half,

with lock Bailey Clark crossing

the line.

Marlborough started the second

half the stronger of the two sides

and were rewarded with a penalty

and converted try to take the lead

10-5.

Lincoln’s No 8 Robin Enosi

levelled the score midway through

the second half when he crossed

the line on the back of a rolling

maul. The try was scored close to

the side line, leaving Brett Gillan

with a challenging angle.

The centre rose to the occasion,

though, giving Lincoln a 12-10

advantage which they would hold

until the final whistle.

Saturday’s final match against

CBHS kicks off at Lincoln High

School at noon.

Backyard Critters

Huhu beetle hard to mistake

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 ENDEMIC huhu

(Prionoplus reticularis) is New

Zealand’s largest (up to 50mm)

beetle.

Their nugget-brown appearance,

with paler wing-vein markings

and long, thick antennae make

this beetle hard to mistake.

The adult is most commonly

seen around outdoor lights on

summer nights where their

clumsy erratic flight and noisy

buzz is very distinctive.

The adults only live for about

two weeks and do not eat, but can

inflict a bite. Females lay clusters

of cigar-shaped eggs under bark

or in crevices of dead wood

including pine, kahikatea, kauri

or rimu using their sharp tipped

ovipositor.

Eggs hatch after about three

weeks and larvae burrow into

the wood, excavating tunnels

and leaving a trail of coarse frass

(insect poo) behind them.

The huhu holes aid the breakdown

of logs by allowing moisture

and fungi access, while weta can

use the holes as refugia.

Huhu larvae grow to a maximum

of 75mm long, taking two to

three years to pupate. Huhu larvae

are eaten by Maori and used as

fishing bait.

Larvae are also eaten by native

birds such as weka and kiwi, while

morepork prey on the adults.

endemic huhu has

JONES ROAD

ROLLESTON

News from Jones Rd Auto

The year is racing along and the team

at Jones Rd Auto is as busy as ever.

Owners Lisa and Nigel Fleck are thrilled

to announce new developments within

the business while they commit to

different projects within the community –

something very important to them.

SAFE-T-STOP

Always on the lookout for new

innovations to ensure the safety of their

customers, the Flecks have introduced the

new Safe-T-Stop brake, alignment and

suspension technology – the first of its

kind in the district.

This test is an accurate and easy way to

test your wheel alignment, suspension and

brakes and issues a report to show what

adjustments can be made to deliver you

real savings on your motoring and ensure

your brakes operate at peak performance.

Just some of the benefits are:

• Detects dangerous side to side and

front-to-rear brake imbalances that can

cause a vehicle to lose control

• Checks drag / alignment on both front

and rear axles to guarantee maximum

tyre performance

• Measures ride quality by testing

the rebound and oscillation of the

suspension, from firm to soft

• Measures corner weight and acts as a

weighbridge

• Gives an accurate, easy to read printout

of the vehicle’s performance with date/

time stamped photo proof that the test

has been completed on YOUR vehicle

The test report reveals not only how

your vehicle is performing under every

day driving conditions, but also what

would happen in an emergency braking

situation. The Safe-T-Stop test means

the team at Jones Rd Auto will quickly

have the vital information to address any

defects and ensure your brakes are in tip

top condition. It can mean the difference

between a safe stop and an accident.

This is a great way to showcase these efforts.

People can be as creative as they like, using any

combination of animation, video or slides to

carry their environmental message.

Entries should be submitted by Friday 25th

August. There are some excellent prizes for

everybody and all videos will be shown at the

SELWYN TIMES

Plant colourful kowhai

in your native garden

• By Veronica Armstrong

THE HERALD of spring in

the native garden has to be the

sunshine yellow kowhai (Sophora

species) – even its name means

yellow.

Its lovely flowers have led to

kowhai being considered our

national flower.

Admittedly, this tree or large

shrub can look quite drab for

most of the year, but at springtime

it comes into its own by bursting

into beautiful yellow flowers.

I have a smaller-growing

cultivar, Sophora molloyi ‘Dragon’s

Gold’, which is more shrub-like in

size and this flowers in late winter.

This year it started flowering as

early as June, perhaps due to our

milder autumn.

Kowhai are significant to

Maori and the flowering on bare

branches, before the leaves appear,

was a signal that winter was over,

frosts were past and it was time to

plant the kumara.

After flowering the seeds form

in pods that hang down from the

branches.

The seeds usually need

scarification (abrasive rubbing to

allow water into the seeds) before

germinating. This can happen

when seeds pass through the gut

of birds, too.

The trees do self-seed and I

often find seedlings popping up in

the garden that can be potted up.

Unusually for New Zealand

trees, some species of kowhai are

deciduous and lose their tiny,

green leaves in winter. Other

species have a juvenile stage of

densely tangled branches before

reaching tree size and starting to

flower.

The only downside to growing

kowhai is to take care as all parts

of the tree are poisonous, as are so

many of our garden plants.

now bigger than ever

Get the gumboots out

IT’S THAT time of the year when

gardeners are yearning for spring

– and it’s just around the corner.

In many areas, it’s still very cold

and soils are exceptionally wet.

However, it’s an excellent time for

planning your new season garden

and completing your planting of

deciduous ornamental and fruit

trees.

Continue to harvest winter

maturing vegetables and where

the soil is friable (easily crumbled)

and not too wet, sow seeds of

beetroot, carrots, onions, peas,

radish and spinach.

Continue to cultivate soil in

preparation for early spring

planting by chopping up and

digging in any green manure

crops. This will significantly

improve the organic content of

the soil. If you haven’t grown any

green manure crops, then add

in compost and mix well with

existing soil.

If possible, try and raise the

planting areas to 100-120mm

above the existing ground level.

Drainage will be improved and

soils will warmer quicker in

spring if you do this.

Winter flowering annuals will

be at their best and late flowering

annuals such as cineraria are now

beginning to bloom. Continue last

plantings of alyssum, calendulas,

cornflower, larkspur, lobelia,

pansy, snapdragon, stock, violas

and wallflowers. These flowering

annuals are also perfect for

growing in containers and provide

and start digging

It’s cropping time for

many citrus; late mandarins

(clementine), lemons, navel

oranges, grapefruit and limes.

While seminole tangelos look

very attractive on trees, you will

need to be patient as they won’t

be sweet enough for eating until

October/November.

Give pip and stone fruit trees

a spray of copper oxychloride so

they start the new growing season

in a healthy state. Complete

pruning of kiwifruit as they will

commence growing next month.

Feijoas should be pruned

to “thin cut” their typical

dense branch growth. This

enables better light penetration

throughout the bush and

ultimately increased fruit

production next season. Young

strawberry plants will be in active

growth already.

Pinch out any flowers that may

appear as plants will not form

healthy berries until well into

spring. Apply copper oxychloride

to help maintain plants in a

healthy state.

Complete the pruning of rose

varieties that were very late

dropping their leaves. While

plants are dormant, apply a

copper oxychloride and/or

horticultural oil spray to ‘clean

up’ any overwintering pests or

diseases. The addition of fresh

compost around existing plants

will greatly benefit early spring

growth.

In most parts of New Zealand

there is little grass growth in

August. However, it is not too

far away. Get your mower blades

sharpened and identify any

problem areas in the lawn to be

rectified in spring/early summer.

In wet shady areas, there is often

significant moss growth which

will usually disappear over the hot

dry summer months.

However, you may want to over

sow these areas with fresh law

seed from October onwards.

Continue to plant out

ornamental shrubs and trees.

Site preparation is critical to the

success of these plantings so avoid

TASTY: Continue

areas that are exceptionally wet,

unless you are planting specimens

that specifically grow in these

conditions.

Add compost to all planting

sites and cultivate soil thoroughly

before planting. Allow enough

space between new trees and

shrubs for full development. Be

guided by local plantings in parks,

friends and neighbours gardens

when considering what to plant.

Weather dependant, August

can be an outstanding month

for bulbs in the home garden.

daffodils, hyacinths, jonquil,

lachenalia and muscari, should be

either in bloom or not far away.

A good trick is to mark the best

performing varieties with small

bamboo stakes as you may wish

to lift and divide those once bulbs

are dormant.

BOUNTY: It’s cropping time for citrus – if your cat allows it.

CONTRAST: Flowering bulbs come to life in early spring.

EVEN BETTER ACCESS TO INTELLIGRO!

The contractors have opened up access to Intelligro from both ends of Manion

Road now, meaning the Main South Road entrance is officially closed.

Intelligro is open and we will have a new entrance!

Access to Intelligro from Manion Road is now available from both the Weedons Ross Road, and

Curraghs Road entrances. This will make it much easier, and safer to get to and from Intelligro!

Access to Intelligro will change due to the construction of the Christchurch Southern Motorway.

From early June 2017 you will find us at 261 Manion Road. Manion Road is the new road built between Weedons Ross Road

and Curraghs Road. Please note the old access from Main South Road is closing permanently.

Planning of

Soon to be built in Rolleston, The Boulevard

retirement village will be the first in Selwyn to offer

a full continuum of care.

Conveniently located at 200 Dunns Crossing Road,

The Boulevard will be completed in stages. Starting

with independent and serviced villas, also planned

are serviced apartments, a rest home, and hospital

level and dementia care.

Owners, Karen and Dean Harris will set the

benchmark, creating a village with a point of

difference where architectural design and colour

options offer variety so the two and three bedroom

villas look more like a residential subdivision than

a retirement village where every villa appears the

same.

Offering the full continuum of care means residents

have peace of mind as they will not have to move

away should their needs change; something that

is often the determining point when selecting a

village.

“First stage of the build will be one, three bedroom

and six, two bedroom villas. Four of these are

already under contract,” advises Karen Harris

who with husband Dean will own and operate The

Boulevard.

“We’ve received so much interest we’re already

looking at stage two where one unit is already

under contract so we’re now taking expressions of

interest for both stages.”

There has been considerable community interest in

the village not only from people wishing to move

in. People looking for future employment including

skilled previous employees now based in Selwyn

have approached Karen, along with others such as

a local hairdresser keen to offer her services in the

village.

The villas will be a total package with

all appliances and whiteware, making

the move easier for residents. Lounges

will have an entertainment unit,

electric fire and large television. In the

kitchen, will be quality stainless steel

appliances with eye level integrated

oven and microwave, ceramic hob,

fridge, dishwasher or dish drawer, prime stone

benches, and soft close drawers.

“So many villages have poorly designed kitchens

with no ease of access where ovens are too low

and cupboards too high so inaccessible,” explains

Karen.

“We aim to build to a client’s needs.”

Ensuites will be fully tiled with under-floor heating,

easily accessible frameless glass showers, a

wall heater and a heated towel rail. The stylish

vanities will have tops specifically designed for

The Boulevard. The laundry will have a washing

machine and dryer.

Solar tubes will provide natural light by day

with sensor lighting in the main areas for easier

movement at night. Along with a monitored

security system and smoke detector residents will

feel safe and secure.

The Boulevard will offer certainty with no hidden

costs or concerns about maintenance, security or

selling a villa at a later stage.

An impressive community lodge capable of

accommodating all residents at one time will be

built at the end of the second stage. The hub for

social activity, it will have a bar and café, dining

area, lounge, meeting/small function room,

beautician/therapy clinic, gym, library, computer

nook, and outdoor sheltered courtyard.

Partners of

Construction will be carried out by Mike Greer Homes who have been chosen for

their quality workmanship and attention to detail.

The project will be overseen by Bonisch Consultants who are known for their

professional management and superior service, while Foley Architects who are

recognised and experienced in retirement village designs, have created The

Boulevard’s innovative design.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

First showhome opens

at Wilfield

A showhome like no other in Canterbury and a first

for West Melton’s Wilfield opened last weekend.

Sited on a 3,256 square metre section, this

295 square metre design is ideal for a lifestyle

block or where more land is available.

A great illustration of exceptional design

and quality, this home has many unique

design features while providing viewers with

an opportunity to visualise the spatial aspects

of a larger home; reflecting G. J. Gardner

Homes’ versatility as a building company.

The brick veneer exterior is complemented

with cedar trim.

Inside, there is sunny bright open plan

living with defined dining and living areas

made more intimate with a box ceiling,

separated from the lounge by double

sliders that can be readily opened out for

entertaining.

The kitchen has ample bench space, an

island sink and a generous triangular shaped

butler’s pantry, complete with good sized sink

for perfect food preparation or washing up. A

long low window offers views of the rear yard

and a door at one end leads out to a sheltered

deck for breakfast or coffee, an area also

accessed through sliders from the lounge.

Tucked out of sight to the rear of the home

is a triple car garage, separate laundry and a

guest’s toilet complete with wash basin.

In the northeast wing of the home are

four double bedrooms plus a study nook.

The master suite has a spacious walk-in robe

and fully tiled ensuite complete with walk-in

shower.

A tiled walk-in shower is also a feature in

the main bathroom along with a bath and the

family toilet next door has its own wash basin

for convenience.

Outdoor living is well catered for with an

inviting and sunny large hardwood deck at

the front of the home, shaded in part by the

cedar lined portico that gives the home a

strong presence and street appeal. Accessible

via sliders from the living area and main

bedroom, the deck as does the home looks

out towards snow-capped Southern Alps.

A ducted heat pump distributes warm air

throughout the house while winter is even

cosier with a log fire in the lounge.

Storage is brilliant in this home with full

height cupboards in the laundry and hall,

generous kitchen, and more than usual

capacity in all bedrooms where three out of

four have walk-in wardrobes.

This is really is an outstanding showhome

and a must for viewing whether in the market

for a new home, wanting ideas or simply

interested in great house design.

G. J. Gardner Homes Christchurch

South’s latest showhome is open Wednesday

to Sunday, 12noon to 4pm. You will find it

at 14 Kingsdowne Drive in Wilfield, West

Melton.

Sited on a 3,256 square metre section, this

block or where more land is available.
