Lucky escape as photos of flood surface

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A MAN has had a lucky escape

after he narrowly got out of his

car before it was washed down

the raging Selwyn River.

Images have surfaced of the car

swamped in water after a man,

new to the area, attempted to

drive across the Glendore Stream,

off Riversleigh Rd, Whitecliffs,

during the recent torrential

downpours.

Senior Constable Andy Grant

said the car was swept about

50m downstream to opposite the

Whitecliffs township.

Police were made aware of the

incident about three hours later,

after a farmer noticed the car and

had concerns someone may have

been trapped.

Senior Constable Grant said

the driver managed to walk away

from the car before it was washed

downstream.

He said the big message is if

there is a heavy downpour, stay

out of rivers and fords.

“If you approach a ford in

heavy rain stop, go slowly, get

out and do an assessment of how

much water is in the ford before

you decide to driver through it,”

he said.

The car has since been pulled

out of the Selwyn River by the

Whitecliffs farmer using a tractor.

Residents fire up over

pet cremation noise

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A HUM from furnaces

operating at a pet crematorium

up to six hours a day is upsetting

residents living nearby.

A public meeting between

concerned residents, the district

council and Environment Canterbury

will be on Monday over

the operation of Fond Farewells

Pet Cremation Service in Lincoln.

A meeting was first held in

June over concerns with about 30

residents showing up.

It comes after a non-notified

decision was made by the district

council for Gribbles Veterinary

Pathology Ltd to redevelop its

site based at Marion Pl in 2015.

The district council’s environmental

services manager Tim

Harris said the resource consent

was granted without consultation

because it found adverse

effects on neighbours were “less

than minor.”

But resident Bob Tomkins,

who lives in Armil Pl behind the

pet cremation said the burners

operate at such a low frequency

even grade five earmuffs cannot

mute the sound.

He said all affected residents

should have been informed of

the development and had the

right to object.

coming from Fond Farewells Pet Crematorium is impossible to

SELWYN TIMES

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

A SOLUTION possibly to the

chronic traffic congestion that the

Halswell Junction Rd and Springs

Rd roundabout causes.

If you don’t get away to work

early, getting through the roundabout

and onto the Southern

Motorway means a 15min or so

backlog to Prebbleton.

This has been happening for a

long time now and will get worse

as the motorway extension work

kicks up another gear.

So the powers that be will

install a traffic signal (see page 3)

at the roundabout to combat the

2km of traffic that backs up on

weekdays.

Once you get to the roundabout

it’s a game of dodgems getting

across and around into the motorway

flow.

That can be exciting, or fearful,

depending on what kind of person

you are behind the wheel.

In Brief

RELIEF IS in sight for Selwyn

Malcolm Lyall

from Lincoln,

Prebbleton,

Rolleston and

surrounding areas have significant

delays at the roundabout

during the morning peak – from

6-10am.

“Some mornings it can take

more than 12min for people

to travel along Springs Rd and

enter the roundabout because of

the constant flow of traffic travelling

north-west along Halswell

Junction Rd,” Ms Wright said.

She said there are often lines of

traffic backed up for more than

2km while people wait for a safe

The new signal is set to relieve

the delay by several minutes and

improve safety during the morning

rush hour.

“It is frustrating for drivers

and also risky as some motorists

try to enter the roundabout

when it is not safe to do so,” Ms

Wright said.

The signal will be installed

80m before the roundabout on

the Halswell side of Halswell

Two sensors will also be

installed, one 200m before the

Ms Wright said the two sensors

once they are at the roundabout,”

Ms Wright said.

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall

said he was delighted that the

intersection will be improved.

“I’m pleased for our

community that the transport

agency is pro-actively providing

a solution to what has become

a frustrating intersection on

our local roading network.

This change will make a real

difference to commuters.”

The project it set to cost

around $150,000.

TAI TAPU TOILET SIGNS

The need for a new sign to direct

people to the public toilets in Tai

Tapu is still yet to be addressed.

The district council told Selwyn

Times in July a new sign directing

people to the toilets would

be installed at the intersection of

Rhodes Rd and Old Tai Tapu Rd

this month. The district council’s

roading manager Mark Chamberlain

said the sign would be

installed by Thursday.

XMAS IN THE PARK RETURN

Darfield’s Country Christmas

in the Park may return but on a

smaller scale. It’s been two years

since Darfield last had a Country

Christmas in the Park. While

interest has been put forward to

help run the event, it is likely to

be smaller and called Picnic in the

Park. Malvern Community Board

chairwoman Jenny Gallagher said

she had discussed holding the

event with the Darfield Township

Committee. It comes after she

received an email from a resident

saying they would like to run

Christmas in the Park this year.

The community board discussed

taking the event forward at its

meeting last night.

Selwyn Youth

Council chair

Ella McClure

writes about

the amount

of support

from Selwyn

youth to have

more public

transport

Young people love having a say,

and we well and truly proved this

at the first ever ‘“What do

YOUth think” events drawing

huge crowds.

These were run by the Selwyn

Youth Council, a group of 11

young people from around the

district.

The events took place at Ellesmere

College and Darfield High

School earlier this month.

It was through this accessible

platform we collated the voices

and opinions of passionate young

people.

A focus for the youth council

this year has been youth well-being,

with the theme of this event

based around public transport in

Selwyn.

This is something we believe

helps reduce isolation in rural

communities, and a reliance on

parents.

It is a solution for young and

old, with senior citizens, those

with disabilities and people looking

for a more eco-friendly travel

solution invited to take part in

our trial.

The need for public transport

in townships across Selwyn particularly

Leeston, Darfield and

surrounding townships was evident

for us as youth councillors.

We decided to go out and see

what young people thought of

this issue and our plan to do

something about it.

Our solution is a project called

Selwyn Link” which is a trial

bus service in future school

holidays, connecting Leeston,

Darfield, and surrounding townships

with Rolleston.

Enabling all members of our

community to go for a swim,

catch up with friends or head

into town using the Metro bus

service.

The aim of this trial is to collect

further data and feedback

to gauge the need for public

transport, which we will then

take to the district council and

Environment Canterbury.

We connected with 121

young people over the lunch

hour at Ellesmere College, each

filling in surveys – until we ran

out.

A further 198 students filled in

surveys at the Darfield event.

Feedback was once again

overwhelmingly positive and

supportive of the idea.

It is a definite work in progress,

but we are excited to start making

an impact on a relevant topic

we believe needs to be improved

upon, not only for young people

– but for all members of our

community.

Our Facebook page is

@SelwynYouthCouncil which

is a great platform to share your

thoughts and get in touch with

us about this idea.

Here you can also learn more

about our recently established

discretionary fund.

The fund is available to provide

support for groups or individuals

whose projects, events or activities

help to strengthen youth

well-being in Selwyn.

We have a total of $5500

excluding GST available to distribute

over 2017/18.

Finally it is a great place to

keep updated on our recruitment

drive for new council members

aged between 14 and 24, taking

place in November.

Readers respond to

Selwyn Times’ article

on the controversy

surrounding a sixbedroom

house in Barton

Fields, Lincoln

Tania Bennett – Any house

can be a rental . . . are they

seriously trying to say that in

those suburbs are all owned by

the occupants and not a single

one is rented? There’s not a lot

of difference between a normal

house being rented and this

one. I mean as they have stated,

there’s no noise or party issues

so what’s the problem.

Gael Murray – Typical

Canterbury. Students are a huge

part of Lincoln and always will

be, like the people who move to

the country then moan about

how a farm smells. Seriously, if

you don’t like what makes up

an area, don’t move there.

Jo Bennetts – Maybe they

are trying to avoid what had

happened around Canterbury

University where family homes

have been turned into rent-bythe-room

investment properties.

Some pretty untidy pockets

there now.

Jo Garrick – Good on the

owner for buying this house in

this day and age that’s a hard

enough step. And to keep your

head above water you have

rented to tenants who are paying

rent and looking after your

property. Some people just need

to mind their own business.

William Hutson – A lot

of people seem to be missing

the point. It’s not that the

house is untidy or noisy . . .

it’s the use and classification

of the building and consents

required when building. The

neighbours bought there first

before this one was built. And

as owners stated they would

have bought elsewhere with the

knowledge of such a dwelling

being built.

Sharren Wilson – There

is nothing “untidy” about that

house. Typical of well-to-do,

self-entitled people who wouldn’t

lift a finger to help a neighbour

or put their hand in their pocket

for homeless people. Did you

ever think that just maybe those

people who rent that property

are just trying to get on with

their life and actually think your

homes are awful.

Krissy Rachelle Stokes –

It’s sad people are so conceited

that they don’t appreciate good

neighbours regardless of whether

they rent or own. Rentals that are

looked after and home-respectful

tenants are of no one’s concern

but the landlord and certainly

shouldn’t be harassed in this

way by neighbours or council

members.

Ariana Gifford – Looks clean

and tidy from the picture. And

they say there have been no noise

complaints, will never be a party

house, landscaping is booked

to be started soon, tenants are

polite. Can guarantee they’d be

hard-pressed to find any area

where there are no rentals.

Alex Gregory – Better get

used to it. Shared rentals new

normal for many in this market.

Valmae Hughan – If that’s

untidy come and see the house

behind us, it’s way untidy.

Rolleston Reserve

Management Committee

chairman Jens Christensen

writes to Selwyn Times

about the construction of a

new bridge at Liffey Stream

In correspondence from the

district council to neighbouring

residents of the Liffey Stream

at Ryelands Drive in Lincoln in

July, I note the intention to construct

a pedestrian bridge from

the walkway between 7 and 9

Ryelands Drive to the land at the

temporary (one to two years) satellite

school site (the old Lincoln

Club site).

Considering that there two

footbridges both within 200m

(one upstream and one downstream)

of the proposed new

bridge site, this proposed new

bridge must surely be a total

waste of the estimated cost of

$110,000.

I also note the support of the

Lincoln Community Committee

for this gross waste of ratepayers

money in the comment by them

“very supportive of the overall

aim to increase connectivity

between the two sides of the

esplanade, better linking existing

pathways on both sides of the

waterway.”

Perhaps the community

committee could explain to the

community how this bridge will

perform this duty in a better way

than the two existing bridges that

also connect both sides of the

stream and especially the bridge

from Kildare Tce to Leinster Tce

and the short walk via the Moffat

Drive walkway to the esplanade

on the temporary school site to

the point where this proposed

new bridge would end.

The Lincoln Community

Committee must surely have

some knowledge of the benefits

of this proposed new bridge and

its costs that I can’t see – perhaps

they may wish to share them

with the community.

The Lincoln Community

Committee responds to Mr

Christensen’s letter

The initiative for a new bridge

came from the district council

wanting to provide safer and

more direct access from the western

side of the Liffey/Millpond to

the eastern side where the reserve

is.

Also to where the primary

school is currently occupying the

former Ellesmere Country Club

site and building.

The LCC did not suggest the

bridge, but does support it, and

they hope to see the grass and

Reserve Flow with New Bridge

tree green space on the eastern

side retained as a public reserve.

The LCC also hopes to see

the former Ellesmere Country

Club building retained in public

ownership for the benefit of the

district, and the Lincoln community,

when it is converted into

an arts and culture centre for

eastern Selwyn.

The new bridge will enable

better accessibility to the public

reserve areas bordering the Liffey

and Millpond, which are not

currently easily accessed because

of developments, land ownership

IDEA: An

showing

how a new

bridge

Stream

would

reserves in

the area.

and steep messy banks.

The community currently

needs to take a considerable

detour regardless of where the

existing bridges are.

The new bridge does provide a

link between the south side of the

Liffey and the north rather than

just being an east to west bank

link or just there for the school.

The ability to walk the length

of the reserve would be the biggest

benefit.

This is best shown by the illustration

of the route with the

bridge in place.

New bridge (marked in cyan) gives clear access between Rylands

and the Millstream play area, gives direct access to the school and

more importantly, creates an almost uninterrupted walk down the

length of The Liffey Reserve.

Council rules on car parks

THE DISTRICT council

Shelley Bakker

Career in the printing industry helps

Shelley Bakker, 52, has been involved in the printing industry for more than

30 years. She spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding about her passion for

wearable art and helping the Prebbleton community

RECYCLED ART: Shelley Bakker with the menopause styled

wearable art dress she made.

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

Tell me about how you came

to be involved with printing?

I have been in the printing

trade since I left school. I initially

got a job in printing but not an

apprenticeship, even though

I was still working within the

trade. It took me six years to get

an apprenticeship. I was the first

female ever in New Zealand to

get the highest practical marks at

Auckland University of Technology

for a printing apprentice. I

was about 21. I have also entered

a competition for a female apprentice

for a non-traditional

role and got second out of New

Zealand.

How did the home business

start?

When my second child was

two and a half, I thought I had

a little bit of time – obviously, I

had a nappy brain. So I started

printing from home. I have been

doing it ever since and my son

is going to be 18 next month in

a couple of weeks. My business

is called Bakkerprint. We print

newsletters, cards, posters.

Because I am artistic, I do the

design side as well. I do menus,

I do art post cards and greeting

cards.

How were you first treated

when you started working in

the industry?

They told me to get an apprenticeship,

I needed university entrance.

I went back to school and

did that for another year. I ended

up getting a job through a friend

of a family. I left school when I

was 18 and I was 52 on Friday. I

have been printing all that time

but I have been printing at home

for 16 years since 2001.

The printing industry has

changed a lot. What are your

thoughts with all the new technology?

I have changed with technology

and I love it. I love my

recycling, but I also love my

technology, and it helps with my

work.

Obviously the printing from

home idea has been a success?

I still do it. It is good to work

around the kids and family. It is a

passion of mine. I love to collect

old books. I do the Prebbleton

Community Association

newsletter. I have been involved

in the association since 2010.

I have actually been doing a

lot more other stuff like the

Prebbleton Community Market

and organising the Christmas

carols for this year. I also have a

mad passion for recycling.

What are some of the

recycling projects you have

done?

I have taken part in wearable

arts shows. For the Westport

Wearable Arts competition

I did last year in July called

Earthworks of Creation, all the

materials I used were recycled.

My costume was called ‘Maltilda

Fuggle’. I originally made it for

A Mid-Winter’s Ale Festival in

Rolleston last year. The dress

got second in the competition.

I entered World of Wearable

Art this year but didn’t get in.

My entry this year was called

Menopausal. It was made out

of paper mache and the head

piece was a very old fashioned

lampshade with different faces of

menopause on it.

artisan give back to her community

Was there a reason you

decided to go with the

menopausal theme?

Probably my age. It is very

good for stress relief. I do a

lot of other recycling. I have

started making supermarket

bags because I get sick of

having to recycle bags and then

forgetting to take them into

the supermarket. One of my

favourite places is at the EcoShed

on Blenheim Rd. I have been

making supermarket bags out of

old beach shades.

How did you get into

wearable art?

I took up running in 2013. My

first long event was Rail Trail

Rampage from Motukarara to

Little River. I did it as a ninja

turtle. Since then, I have done

other events including the

Buller Gorge Marathon. My

motto is: I run like a turtle

running through peanut

butter. I may be slow but finish

strong so my nickname is Turtle

Shell. From there, I started

my love of creating wearable

materials.

What work have you

done to get the Prebbleton

Market going?

I started the market last

October. There used to be an

older market a few years ago.

Apparently it hadn’t been going

for a couple of years. I said I can

do that. I did a lot of research

on the timing of it. The old

one used to be on a Saturday

morning. I made this one the

first Sunday of the month.

We have live entertainment,

free face-painting – it is a nice

community atmosphere around

the Prebbleton Community

Cottage.

Was it a lot of work when you

first started co-ordinating the

market?

I spent a lot of time promoting

it to make it as free as I can. It

took a lot of time. The money

we make from the stall-holders

and the market, we give back to

the community. Four months

ago, we donated $460 back to

community groups. It is all about

community and giving back,

rather than a money-making

venture.

ATMOSPHERE:

Shelley

Bakker has

been working

on a range

of projects

to bring the

community

together at the

Prebbleton

Community

Cottage.

Is Prebbleton a close-knit

community?

That is why I do the Prebbleton

Market. The community has

grown so much since the

earthquake – it has spread out

a lot.

I hear you’re bringing

Christmas carols to the

Prebbleton Community Cottage?

Around the cottage, it is in the

same place as the market. It is a

lovely atmosphere. We have got

a brass band and we are hoping

to have a night market, as well

as the carols. It will be outside

weather permitting.

Where did you meet your

husband?

I met my husband when I

was 30 I think. It was after

many years of my aunt telling

me I should meet this guy and

for years I said no. Finally, I

bit the bullet and I did. He is a

mechanic. They are contractors

for a breakdown service. It

is an AA battery service. We

have been doing it for 10 years.

We both used to go out and

cover Christchurch. That was

in between my work. I was

studying batteries as well. I had

three brothers and I was very

mechanically-minded and I have

always been a bit of a tom-boy

really. When I was looking at

leaving school, I thought I would

either do that or some kind of

engineering. I liked photography

and I thought I would go the way

of printing. I tend to be a little bit

rebellious. If there is something

you are passionate about, try

your hardest to make it work and

make your passion your job and

you will never work because you

will enjoy it, which is what I have

done.

JAN BOLWELL

HER

GRANDFATHER’S

STORY

“... Jan Bolwell tells her grandfather’s tales of WW1 with a

remarkable vision and perception. Her versatility is admirable.

me for six.”

7.30PM

- Raymond Hawthorne

THE LABORATORY, LINCOLN

$25 BOOK AT THE LABORATORY OR CALL 325 3006

Our next Arts on Tour performance

has left audiences weeping and

laughing up and down the country.

Consummate performer Jan Bolwell

plays her adolescent self, trying to get

her grandfather Arthur to talk about

his war. After much pestering, he

succumbs.

What follows is a gripping, painful and

sometimes hilarious tale of a young

Kiwi soldier from the Otago Mounted

Rifles (one of Bill Massey’s Tourists) who

with his mate Cyril, survives the terrible

tragedy of Passchendaele.

The play is enlivened with dance

sequences set to amusing and original

WW1 soldiers’ ditties and First World

War poems.

“This exceptional performer,

Jan Bolwell, is blessed with an

irrepressible joie-de-vivre that

communicates itself instantly to the

audience, so that her grandfather’s

story is illuminating and memorable,

but also surprisingly enjoyable.”

- Terry McTavish

The Laboratory is opening especially on

a Monday (when normally closed) so the

whole venue will be given over to this

fantastic event.

Doors open at 5.30pm and the show

starts at 7.30pm. The bar will be open

with a delicious menu available on the

night.

Tickets are $25 and available over

the bar or call 325 3006.

Look forward to more superb

performances at ticketed events

at The Laboratory throughout the

year. Check out our website for

Lucky escape as car gets swept away

•From page 1

Senior Constable Grant said

if people do end up in the situation

of having their vehicle

washed down a river and they

are safe, they should contact

police to make them aware no

one is in danger.

It is not the only close-call to

surface since the floods.

During the July floods two

men in a four-wheel-drive were

swept about 100m downstream

in a wild torrent of water from

a ford off Greendale Rd in

Darfield.

The two men managed to

exit onto the roof of the vehicle

and scrambled up a pine tree

before police, ambulance and

fire services arrived.

The incident happened

at about midnight on July

23.

Senior Constable Grant said

one of the men managed to get

ashore by swimming through

the river and grabbing onto the

shrubs and bushes, while the

other stayed up the pine tree

•From page 1

The business is as close as

400m from residential dwellings.

Residents first began to

notice the sound of the burners

at Christmas time last year,

mistaking it for roadworks being

completed on Gerald St.

Mr Tomkins’ wife Joanne

is terminally ill with a

rare heart-lung condition

called pulmonary arterial hypertension,

meaning her heart

is twice as large as it should be

and she is in need of a double

lung and heart transplant.

A recent visit to a specialist

found Mrs Tomkin’s condition

had progressed by 18 months

and were told the likely cause

was stress and a lack of sleep.

“She just can’t sleep and the

stress is killing her,” Mr Tomkins

said.

Mrs Tomkins said the noise

gets to the point where you

cannot leave your doors open

because can be heard from the

other end of the house.

Residents would like to see

the business moved to an alternative

site.

But Mr Harris said the

business has a valid resource

consent to be there.

The crematorium has been

operated by Gribbles Veterinary

since 1986.

It originally operated as an

incinerator room, a component

of agricultural research activities

historically undertaken on

the site by the former Ministry

of Agriculture and Fisheries.

The new development has

two furnaces, a preparation

room, a storage room, car

parking space and reception

and memorial rooms.

Gribbles Veterinary general

manager James Richardson

said its location which was

previously situated in a paddock,

has now been met on

the boundary of residential

dwellings.

He said in the past 18

months the business had undertaken

building and furnace

upgrades to ensure its services

have low-impact on the environment

and its neighbours.

Under the district plan the

location of the pet crematorium

falls under Business 3

Zone and limits the noise to

55dBA between 7.30am-8pm.

The decision to allow the

development to go ahead

restricted the operation hours

from 6.30am-5pm, Monday to

Friday and 6.30am to 2.30pm

on Saturdays.

Residents had concerns over

why a new a resource consent

to operate the burners was not

granted from ECan. The most

recent resource consent was

granted from ECan in 2003.

A ECan spokeswoman said

the consent covers the redevelopment.

* The public meeting is at

the Lincoln Event Centre at

5.30pm.

and was rescued by police.

One of the drivers exited

the vehicle with his cellphone

and called a friend who alerted

emergency services.

The car was severely damaged.

“They are lucky to be

alive,” Senior Constable Grant

said.

Selwyn Mayor

Mayor invites you to join

Mayor Sam

Broughton writes

about the growth of

multiculturalism in

Selwyn, and invites

residents to help him

represent the district

in Japan and China

next year

We all know Selwyn is

a changing place. Each

month more than 30

residents become citizens

in Selwyn and they

usually represent seven

to nine different nations

from around the globe.

At the 2013 census,

Selwyn was seven per

cent Maori, three per cent

Asian, one per cent Pacific

and two per cent other.

The census next year will

show us how we have

changed over the past five

years and what we look

like today.

Our world is a small

place with people and

goods making their way

across the skies with ease.

It’s a far cry from the

months aboard ships that

many of our ancestors

experienced on their voyages

here.

Our view of the world is

always informed through

our experiences and

through the information

we expose ourselves to.

There are many ways

to grow our world view

and increase our intellect,

including reading, formal

study, conversations and

travel.

I love listening to audiobooks

and pod-casts

and the conversations

MULTICULTURAL: Mayor Sam Broughton with

a group from Akitakata, Japan, who visited the

district council earlier this month.

they start. I have enjoyed

spending time in a number

of countries around

the world – including

helping to build homes in

Sri Lanka following the

Boxing Day tsunami, a

water tank for a school in

Fiji and teaching English

in Thailand.

These experiences shape

the way I appreciate our

growing multicultural

community in Selwyn.

Selwyn has four sister

city relationships, which

have been set up to grow

greater cultural awareness,

support exchanges

and education in our

schools, and develop business

links.

Our sister cities are Akitakata,

Japan; Shandan,

China; Toraja, Indonesia;

and Coventry, United

States. The Malvern Community

Board also has a

relationship with Yubetsu,

Japan.

In September/October

2018, I intend to travel

to Akitakata, Japan, and

Shandan, China, to further

develop our relationships.

This will link with

school visits already being

planned.

These are places I have

never been before and

may be places new to you

as well.

I invite you to come

with me.

Your interest may be

cultural, education, business

or something else,

and I look forward to

sharing all or some of the

journey with you.

All trips are funded by

the individual travelling,

with the district council

offering administrative

and planning support

only.

Plucky Ellesmere effort

• By Gordon Findlater

AN IMPROVED second half

effort saw Ellesmere push

Metro Black in their under-14

game at Darfield at the

weekend, before falling 24-35.

The team will now look

to get one win over the boys

from the city when they play

Metro Red on Saturday.

After trailing 0-14 at the

half-time break at the weekend

Ellesmere came firing

back into contention with two

early second half tries to Seth

Bennett and Riley Watson

closed the gap to four.

Ellesmere and Metro then

traded tries, with Caleb

Murphy and Kayse Sisikefu

both crossing the line.

However, a late penalty from

Metro sealed the result.

Coach Mike

Kingston highlighted the

efforts of loose forwards

Sisikefu and Jake Pluck who

both provided quality metres

with their dominant ball running.

Following Saturday’s game

an under-14 Canterbury

Country team will be selected

from the Ellesmere and North

Canterbury under-14 sides. A

large Ellesmere contingent is

expected in the squad after putting

over 100 points on North

Canterbury a fortnight ago.

SELWYN TIMES

Don’t forget to

buckle up!

Over the last three years in Canterbury car crashes have caused the deaths of 26 people who

weren’t wearing their seatbelt. This is over a third of all fatalities during this period.

If you are involved in a crash, wearing a seatbelt dramatically reduces the risk of drivers and

passengers receiving fatal or serious injury.

It’s important to ensure you are not seated too close to the steering wheel or dashboard, as in

a crash, your seatbelt and airbag needs time and room to do its job. Many people, unaware of

the physics of an impact, feel safer sitting close to the steering wheel or dashboard, putting

themselves at greater risk.

Remember, the driver is responsible for ensuring all passengers under 15 years old wear seatbelts

or are in an approved restraint. If you don’t wear a seatbelt or you allow a person under 15 years

to travel unrestrained, you could face a fine of $150 for each belt not worn. People 15 years and

older are responsible for their own fine.

Police see the non-use of seatbelts as a serious issue and will be strictly enforcing this in

Selwyn district.

For more information on seatbelts, child restraints or airbags, check the information on

nzta.govt.nz or contact the Road Safety Co-ordinator at the Council.

Explore Selwyn – Otira Valley Walk

On your way through Arthur’s Pass?

There’s a short scenic walk nestled amongst the mountains just west of the Arthur’s Pass Township. Otira

Valley walk is a relatively easy graded track that follows up a deep alpine valley on the northern side of Mt

Rolleston. The track winds through the valley to the Otira River then runs alongside the river. The alpine

birds and gentle river flow create a tranquil atmosphere with a stunning view of the towering alps.

The track climbs over an old glacial moraine, then follows the

contour through subalpine scrub and tussock to the Otira River

foot-bridge. Melted ice and snow trickle down the mountains

creating mini waterfalls along the track.

The track is relatively level but a few small streams to cross and

some large rocks to step up onto make the track interesting and

enjoyable to navigate.

Check out a video of this track on our Facebook page.

Warning: The track finishes at the foot-bridge. Travel past this point

requires map reading and route finding skills. For experienced alpine

trampers and mountaineers only. This track is subject to avalanche

hazard in winter so it is not recommend going past this point in winter.

Time/Distance: 45 minutes

one way.

Difficulty: Easy. Not suitable

for buggies or wheelchairs.

How to get there: The track

starts at the Otira valley car

park just west of the Arthur’s

Pass township. Located 1 hour

45 minutes from Rolleston or 1

hour 25 minutes from Darfield.

Dogs not permitted.

Reduce your waste at home

Council is sponsoring two waste-free workshops next month. These

workshops will be hosted by Kiwi mum Kate Meads.

In the first workshop, Waste Free Parenting, Kate will teach you

exciting and inspiring ways to minimise waste, while introducing you

to modern sustainable products for use in the home.

The workshop will show you lots of ways you can reduce waste at

home, show the environmental impact of the choices you make and

dispel the myths about what happens to your waste.

Kate is also hosting another workshop called Food Lovers

Masterclass. This is a session focusing on education around ways

to reduce food waste when cooking and preparing meals.

Kate admits she wasn’t always the waste free person she is now.

“I used to be the ultimate consumer and master waste producer.

Since having my son Daniel in 2005 I have since become a waste

free parenting warrior – promoting waste free alternatives for lots of

different products including nappies,” Kate says.

“Often we believe we need to change everything to make a

difference, in the long term this is true but in the short term it seems

too hard. What we forget is that if we all just make a small seemingly

insignificant change every day the results will be hugely significant.”

Every year the average New Zealand family throws away three

shopping trolleys worth of food, Kate will talk about how you can

stop wasting money and creating unnecessary waste.

The workshops are being held on Saturday 16 September at the

Lincoln Event Centre with the first session from 10am–12.30pm

and the second 5.30–7.30pm. Tickets are $25 each or for a couple.

Every ticket comes with a $100 goodie bag. Bookings are required –

Osbornes Drain – a holistic

approach to water management

The Osbornes Catchment Management Working party has reached

a significant milestone to improve water quality in the Osbornes

Drain catchment.

At a recent meeting held at Council Headquarters, the working party

celebrated the successful granting in February 2017 of a resource

consent for the land drainage discharge from Osbornes Drain. The

Selwyn District Council holds the consent.

Council Asset Manager Water Services Murray England says

an exciting process has now begun to ensure the sustainable

management of the catchment and drainage system.

“Council is working together with Environment Canterbury, Te

Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, Te Taumutu Rūnanga, Wairewa Rūnanga, The

Department of Conservation, and Osbornes Drainage Committee to

ensure sustainable catchment and drainage management,” he says.

“This type of management of the drain allows the group to

progressively identify issues, provide interventions, monitor and

adapt, to achieve the required water quality outcomes.”

The Osborne Catchment Management Working party’s key objectives

for the management of Osbornes Drain:

· The protection and enhancement of attributes which contribute to

the values of both Ngāi Tahu and DOC in the network and from the

pump station discharge

· The improvement of water quality and ecosystem health in

the catchment and in particular in both the network and

receiving environment

· Restore the mana of the wetland and drainage system

downstream of the pump station

· The avoidance of erosion and the effects of sediment discharge

· The reduction of the adverse effects of flooding

· Efficient and effective drainage system which facilitates

sustainable farming practices.

cattery in Ladbrooks for over 13 years.

Their handy location is a short drive from

the townships of Lincoln, Prebbleton, Tai

Tapu, Halswell, Greenpark, Springston and

Rolleston, taking away the stress and hassle

of transporting your loved cat to its home

away from home. It will be a simple five to

ten minute drive for drop off and pick up.

Jan and Tony pride themselves on

ensuring that Cozy Cats on Ellesmere

Cattery offers a cosy, safe and pleasant

environment for all their feline guests.

With a motto of: quality not quantity, this

small intimate cattery is perfect for sensitive

and nervous cats that would otherwise feel

overwhelmed by a larger establishment

where there were numerous animals.

Cozy Cats on Ellesmere Cattery has

seven large units, nine feet long by three

feet wide in size. All are fully insulated so

wonderfully warm in winter while also

maintaining a nice cool yet comfortable

temperature in summer.

There is also a generous outdoor enclosure

where your loved cat will feel content to

explore and enjoy the fresh country air.

This is a cattery that offers that little bit

extra in the accommodation offered to its

feline guests, and in the loving care they

receive. It is for this reason that many

people who need their cats cared for,

whether for a short or extended period of

time, look no further than Cozy Cats on

Ellesmere Cattery.

of other matters, assured in the knowledge

that your cat is being looked after in a safe,

secure and stress free environment, where

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Motors on show at

Selwyn Fest

Vince Jackson with his

1972 Chevy Nova.

SELWYN TIMES

Fiona McLachlan and John

Alexander’s 1971 Ford Falcon XY GT.

1971 Ford Falcon XY GT

When young, John Alexander walked past

a car yard on his way to school. He would

admire the Ford Falcons, a vehicle raced

by Canadian born Australian racing driver,

Alan Moffat who won the 1971 South Pacific

Touring Series and 1973 Australian Touring

Car Championship in a Ford XY Falcon

GTHO Phase 3.

John fulfilled his dream when he and

partner, Fiona McLachlan purchased their

4-door, 1971 Ford Falcon XY GT saloon a

number of years ago and recently added

stickers to replicate Alan Moffat’s racing car.

John says it handles really well for a 40

year old car, perhaps because it was built as a

production race car. This might also explain

the 351 Cleveland engine that John recently

rebuilt when there was 67,000 original miles

on the clock.

The vehicle has a manual 4-speed gearbox

and top speed around 130mph. It was built

in Australia explaining its 36 fuel tank that

costs close to $300 to fill though lasts about

500 kilometres.

Fiona and John enjoy driving their car.

They have taken it to Taupo, Invercargill

and Westport and won numerous prizes

including Best Muscle Car at the Kaikoura

Hop. It has also featured in the Aussie Street

Machine magazine.

John and Fiona’s Ford Falcon will be at the

Selwyn Motor Fest in November, an event

they are helping to organise.

1972 Chevy Nova

Vince and Kari’s satin silver, 2-door, 1972

Chevy Nova has been built as a Yenko tribute

with custom graphics, 355 decals and black

widened steel wheels to make it stand out in

the muscle car crowd. With drop spindles

and adjustable suspension, this Chevy

Nova has the prefect stance and the motor

an angry note that lets you know it means

business.

The Chevy Nova arrived in New Zealand

four years ago and was in storage until last

year when Gareth, the previous owner,

began restoring it. Vince and Kari saw the

car at Muscle Car Madness this year. They

decided they had to own it so made an offer,

before the car was completed.

They are not concerned about fuel

consumption having bought the vehicle

because they liked its look and sound. It is

a little different, due to Nova’s being rare in

New Zealand.

When restored, the Chevy’s interior

was found to be minimal and the engine

mounted in a way that suggested the vehicle

might have been a prop car in American

movies, a suspicion that Vince has not yet

been able to confirm.

Vince and Kari love to burn fuel and drive

the tyres off the Nova.

Their Chevy Nova will be at the Selwyn

Motor Fest in November, an event Vince is

helping to organise.

Selwyn Motor Fest

Selwyn’s first Motor Fest will be

held in Rolleston on Sunday, 26

November, from 10am until 3pm.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

A lifetime love

of motorcycles

A passion for motorcycles shared by

high school friends led to four becoming

professional racers and Lindsay Williamson

starting his own motorbike business.

That was in 1975 and Christchurch

Motorcycles has been serving motorcycle

enthusiasts in Christchurch and further

afield ever since.

The business was one of the first Harley

Davidson franchises in New Zealand,

then in 1995 Lindsay decided to focus

on importing and trading New Zealand

second hand Harley Davidson, Victory

and Indian motorcycles, along with some

Japanese bikes.

Five years ago, Christchurch Motorcycles

moved from Hornby to their current

premises near Lincoln. They sell

motorcycles, tyres, batteries and other

parts, and services customer’s bikes.

Lindsay believes in providing a high

level of service. He enjoys the challenge of

sourcing quality parts that represent good

value at affordable prices and likes to assist

customers, advising them on how best to

keep their machine running smoothly and

in a safe condition.

“Whether a customer spends $2 or $2,000,

it makes no difference,” says Lindsay.

Lindsay likes the day to day contact with

those who come into the shop.

“Our customers are great. I value them

and their loyalty,” adds Lindsay who advises

that their customers travel from across

Canterbury and even further.

Lindsay’s love of motorcycling includes

bike racing. Over the years, he has been a

supporter of BEARS motorcycle racing in

Canterbury, seeing it as a great discipline

for young men and women who become

involved with the sport. He is also proactive

in lobbying for rights for motorcyclists such

as more realistic ACC levies on motorbike

Christchurch Motorcycles’ Lincoln

location is particularly handy for people

living in Selwyn who can pop into the store

on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9am

until 5pm, or on Saturdays between 9am

and 2pm.

At other times, there is a good chance

the team at Christchurch Motorcycles

will be working out the back so if you

need help with a repair to your trusty

steed, why not give Lindsay a call on 0274

Gardening

Potatoes – the veg for gardens of all sizes

• By Paul Hoek

NOT SO many years ago every

quarter-acre section boasted a

large potato patch to feed the

family.

As a tasty, versatile and affordable

addition to any meal, it just

made sense to grow your own.

But as property sizes shrunk, the

demand for growing your own

spuds also diminished.

Not so any more, we’ve seen a

big resurgence in home potato

growing. Gone are the days when

you were obliged to purchase a

2kg bag of seed potatoes to get

your own crop growing. Packs of

five, 10 or 20 seed potatoes cater

for all garden sizes.

Whether you’ve got a small or

large garden, potatoes are a musthave

vegetable. Growing potatoes

is a great way to get children into

gardening, and nothing beats

your own home-grown spuds on

the Christmas table.

So, where to start? With quality

certified seed potatoes. Seed potatoes

look just like regular potatoes

but are usually smaller, and are

certified free of disease, so you

know you’re getting the best start.

Some of the well known varieties

are jersey benne, agria and rua.

The type of potato you choose

to plant will depend largely on

what you want to do with it and

when you want to harvest.

Seed potatoes fit into three

categories – early, early-main and

main crop. Early potatoes are

ready to harvest early, and really

need to be harvested early as

they are not long-term growers.

They also taste a lot better when

harvested early – the classic early

sweet-tasting new potato.

Early-main crop potatoes can

be harvested early to get ‘new’

potatoes, or can happily be left in

the ground until the top growth

dies back and the skins thicken

up. Harvested later, they are no

longer ‘new’ potatoes, but larger

and thicker skinned.

And main crop potatoes need

longer in the ground and should

be left in until the tops die back in

autumn before harvest. They will

be larger, thick-skinned and also

keep well.

If you want to ensure you’re

serving home-grown spuds at

Christmas, plant early potatoes

such as rocket, swift, jersey benne

or cliff kidney. These ones can be

harvested after about 90 days so,

if planted in September, will be

ready for Christmas.

Potatoes also vary in their make

up. Some are called ‘waxy’ potatoes

and these are lower in starch

and hold together much better

when cooking – they are more

suitable for salads, boiling and

casseroles. Others varieties are

called ‘floury’ potatoes and these

ones are higher in starch and

FRESH: The

best way to

check if your

potatoes are

ready is to

loosen the dirt

around a few

of the plants,

put your hand

in the soil and

gently pull

out a spud or

two to check

progress.

ideal for wedges, chips, roasting

and mashing. The earlier potatoes

tend to be more the waxy

types, and the later varieties more

floury.

If you’re looking for a general

purpose potato, try desiree or rua

– these are suitable for most uses.

Leave your seed potatoes in a

light, dry place for a few weeks so

they can start to shoot.

When the shoots are approximately

2cm long they’re ready to

plant. Before doing so, work in

some compost to the soil to make

it more friable and easier for the

potatoes to grow, as well as easier

for you to harvest.

Next, dig a v-shaped trench

about 15cm deep in your garden

and place the potatoes in the bottom

of it – approximately 40cm

apart.

You don’t need to fill the trench

back up at this stage, just cover

the planted potatoes with at least

5cm of soil. New spuds hate frost,

so keep an eye on them and as

the shoots start to push through,

cover them a little more each

week until you have turned your

trench into a mound of 15-20cm

in height after six to eight weeks.

The more growing stem beneath

the soil, the more opportunity

for the plant to produce

potatoes and the bigger your crop.

To keep diseases away, don’t

overhead water your potatoes

excessively. Once planted the

rain should be enough to keep

them going until they’re ready for

harvesting.

I also recommend covering

your potato crop with some

insect-proof netting which will

keep out the potato-tomato psyllid,

a small insect that can cause a

lot of damage.

The best way to tell if your potatoes

are ready is to ‘tickle’ a few

up to check. Get out your trowel

and loosen the dirt around a few

of your potato plants, put your

hand in the soil and gently pull

out a spud or two to check progress.

If your potatoes are small,

cover them up again with dirt and

leave them to grow.

Mixed Two

Emma milburn & JacquElinE morrEn

Little River Gallery will be presenting works by two artists, Emma Milburn and Jacqueline

Morren in their new exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ from this Saturday September 2nd. They are

bringing together different geographical cultures, using different media and materials,

both with a strong environmental focus from the manmade and natural world. Their work

is fabricated by using old traditional techniques yet with a contemporary edge.

Emma Milburn’s paintings depict elements that are influenced by the natural environment

of remote and isolated South Island wilderness areas and her interaction within this. As a

Wilderness Search Dog handler and Visual Tracker, Emma is acutely tuned in to analyse

detail along with the ‘big picture’.

Colour, shape, shine, shadow, contours,movement and

texture influence Emma’s abstract painting style.

”The juxtaposition between my experiences of wilderness,

and an urban environment of playing and writing music also

bring an awareness of the interaction between space, time

and repetition.”

‘Monowai’ original painting

by Emma Milburn from

the exhibition ‘Mixed Two’

at Little River Gallery from

September 2nd

For Jacqueline Morren this body of work is a new direction.

She sets herself a big challenge to sculpt without training or

access to technical tools. At times this has resulted in her

having to create her own implements, to aid the stretching &

curving of the silver out of one piece, without the use of soldering.

Jacqueline Morren’s fine

silver and Pounamu jug

‘Punctuated Equilibrium’

from the exhibition ‘Mixed

Two’ at Little River Gallery

from September 2nd

“Maker’s marks are left intentionally; I have no inclination towards smooth perfection. I

love discovering the magical combination of metals & Jade until it feels right, usually after a

long process. This enables the wonderful greenstone to come to life, to its fullest potential.”

The artwork is layered with era’s bygone, present and anticipated future innovation.

The exhibition is running from 2nd until 27th September. For more information, please visit www.littlerivergallery.com

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Building on a

corner section

Corner sites are often overlooked, as

many people opt for standard sections that

are perceived as offering more privacy.

Callum McGhie, Design and Sales

Consultant for Homes by Maxim,

suggests corner sections are the unsung

heroes due to their two open boundaries

affording more opportunity to capture

uninterrupted sun into a home as well

as convenience with multiple points of

access.

Jim Painter from First National Real

Estate supports this view. He says corner

sections give a home a street presence and

grander vista. They also allow people who

enjoy gardening to create an environment

to share with others.

While corner sections are no cheaper,

they can be slower to sell due to buyers

factoring in the cost of additional fencing

or hedges to gain privacy and secluded

areas.

“Purchasers of corner sections often look

to make them private whereas these sites

show off a home’s design and landscaping,”

advises Jim.

Smaller corner sites do have their

supporters, often being popular with

homebound residents such as the elderly,

who may enjoy watching the activity in the

neighbourhood.

Callum believes the pros of a corner site

outweigh the cons.

“Multiple points of access translate to

more off-street parking, offering a place

for a boat, caravan or motorhome and

the opportunity to capture more sun into

the home which is a real plus,” suggests

Callum.

Both Callum and Jim emphasise that

corner sections on quiet residential streets

offer lots of potential yet if located on a

busy street where traffic slows down then

accelerates when turning the corner, there

are more challenges.

Callum who has a background in

and passion for good design enjoys the

challenge of creating a plan that fits a

client’s parameters and while section size

is a factor generally more privacy from

neighbouring properties can be achieved

with a corner site.

“Many people think their home will

be on view yet with clever design there’s

potential for more outdoor living space

without being aware there’s a street

nearby,” suggests Callum.

While subdivision covenants will

influence what can be done with fencing

and other aspects of building, Callum says

a reputable building company will factor

this in when designing and siting a home

on a corner section.

“Standard plans often don’t lend

themselves to a corner site and a

collaborative approach is needed in

achieving a client’s goals,” adds Callum

who admits to loving the challenge of

producing a unique design that works for

each and every given environment.

Corner sections have potential. Look

for a building company that will work

with you so you end up with a design

that enhances all the benefits of the site,

maximising privacy, outdoor living space

and sunshine.
