Schools

against bid

for new

liquor store

in Lincoln

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LINCOLN SCHOOLS are

standing up against plans for a

new liquor store, saying they are

worried about the message it will

send to students.

An application has been made

to open a new shop – the Lincoln

Bottle Store – at 12A Gerald St,

which is 96m away from Super

Liquor.

The opportunity to make an

objection closes tomorrow, and

a hearing date is yet to be set by

the district licensing committee.

The application has been opposed

by Lincoln High School.

Principal Kathy Paterson said

there was already another liquor

outlet close by and it was sending

a poor message to students

regarding drugs and alcohol.

“It is just its location – if it

was somewhere else in Lincoln,

where it wasn’t so central

to where the students are, it

wouldn’t pose such a problem,”

she said.

Lincoln Primary School and

Lincoln University both told

Selwyn Times they were aware of

the application and were considering

a response.

Lincoln Primary School previously

objected to Super Liquor,

and for the first four years of

its establishment, the store was

required to be closed during the

hours its pupils were travelling

home from school.

Principal Vivienne Butcher

said another liquor store was

absolutely unnecessary.

“It does seem to me to be an

oversupply of liquor outlets in

one small frontage,” she said.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

WHERE THERE’S a demand

there is opportunity, and in

Lincoln’s case right now it appears

to be hospitality.

New bars are being built and we

reveal today (page 1) there is an

application for a new off licence

bottle store in Gerald St.

Off-licence bottle store applications

tend to attract opposition and

it’s no different in this case.

The two local schools are against

it.

But there’s a very good reason

another off-licence wants to go into

Lincoln – the university students.

And that’s what I mean by demand.

The New World supermarket

and Super Liquor dominate the

off-licence market at the moment

but obviously the new applicant

believes there is room for more

business.

That will mean competition, and

competition is good. There will be

a lot of pressure to retain business.

The winner? – the customer.

“My first pair of hearing aids...”

When someone first comes to see me, they often

have no idea what to expect. It is common for

people with hearing loss to wait up to 7 years

after first noticing the symptoms before seeking

help. That is a very long time to be dealing

with the day to day stress of struggling to hear.

If you know you need help with your hearing

but haven’t seen an audiologist yet, here is what

you can expect.

Free hearing check. This will confirm a hearing

loss if you have one. Its a quick and accurate

test that often reaffirms what my customers

already suspect.

Full diagnostic hearing test. This test is far

more detailed and tells us what type of hearing

loss you have (sensory or middle ear related),

we test your speech understanding at different

levels and test if your middle ear is working

how it should be. We look at the results and

discuss them so that you fully understand your

hearing loss. At this point you are welcome to

try some hearing aids programmed exactly to

your hearing loss in the clinic. If you are keen

for hearing aids we will go through an assessment

of you lifestyle to determine what ones

might be best for you and we look at a range

of different styles and prices to find something

that suits your lifestyle and budget needs. You

may even qualify for funding help through ACC

or the Ministry of Health – we can go through

the process together so you know what you may

be entitled to.

Hearing aid fitting. Once we have decided on

what hearing aids are best for you, we fit the

aids to you ears and tune them up to your hearing

loss. We can adjust them to your personal

preference as well, as sometimes we need to set

things more conservatively to start with. One

thing I do is make sure we do a lot of practice at

this appointment. I want my customers to feel

completely comfortable with the technology!

Putting the aids in you ears, changing batteries,

how to care for your hearing aids, its all covered.

You will leave this appointment with the right

hearing aids for you, tuned specifically for you

and you will be confident in how to use and

maintain them.

Follow-Up appointments. I like to see you

again after a couple of weeks to ensure you are

happy and that your hearing aids are delivering

the best results possible. We go through things

that went well and things that you might want

changed in the hearing aids. You can have as

many follow-ups as you need until you are happy

with the way the hearing aids are sounding.

There is no extra charge for follow-up appointment

in the first year of getting hearing aids.

The annual check up. At these appointments

the hearing aids can be adjusted for any further

decline in hearing. If you already have aids

purchased elsewhere you are welcome to switch

and see me for your annual check-ups. All the

programming information is held in the hearing

aids so it is easy to check your previous hearing

level and Jon Griffithsee if your aids need some fine tuning.

Gemma’s walkies on

wheels puts smiles on faces

• By Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

A LITTLE dog in a pram is

capturing hearts everywhere

she goes in Rolleston.

Described as a “little

madam,” Gemma the cairn

terrier loves her daily walks

and hates to be left at home.

So when she was diagnosed

with a serious illness, her

owner Sue Smit came up

with a cunning plan to make

sure her dog could still get

outdoors.

Each morning you will find

Gemma out travelling firstclass

in a pram on Goulds

Rd, near the roundabout of

Clearview Primary School.

Mrs Smit came up with

the idea after a friend of hers

bought a proper dog stroller

after an operation on its ligaments.

Earlier this year the

10-year-old was diagnosed

with immune-mediated

hemolytic anemia, causing

her immune system to start

attacking her red blood cells.

Mrs Smit said the disease

causes her to tire easily making

it difficult for her to walk

far.

But she said Gemma will

push through whatever happens

to her.

Mrs Smit was first made

aware of Gemma’s condition

when the dog fainted while

running around at the Foster

Park Dog Exercise Area.

While there is no cure to

the illness, Gemma is on

medication.

The little dog has united

canine-fans on Facebook’s

Rolleston Community Page

with nearly 500 responses to

CHERISHED:

an image of her posted online

and several comments wishing

her a fast recovery.

“She is a very cute little

dog. Everyone who meets

her absolutely loves her,” Mrs

Smit said.

Mrs Smit said Gemma

used to love running up to

her favourite people at the

dog park.

Since Gemma’s image was

posted on Facebook, Mrs

Smit said she is regularly approached

by residents asking

how she is doing.

In Brief

NEW TAI TAPU TOILET SIGN

The confusion over where to find Tai

Tapu’s public toilets may no longer be

an issue for travellers passing through

the township. A new toilet sign was

installed by the district council at the

intersection of Rhodes Rd and Old Tai

Tapu Rd last week.

BETTER BROADBAND

The Government has announced

ultra-fast broadband will be extended

to more areas in Selwyn. The areas

include Arthur’s Pass, Castle Hill,

Coalgate, Glentunnel, Doyleston, Dunsandel,

Hororata, Kirwee, Prebbleton,

Tai Tapu, Waddington and Sheffield.

MP for Selwyn Amy Adams said it

is fantastic news. “Rolling out worldclass

broadband is a vital part of the

Government’s plan to support regional

growth,” she said. A total of $233.3

million will be invested in ultra-fast

broadband connectivity across Canterbury.

PORT HILLS TREES TRUST

A new trust aims to work with private

landowners, Ngāi Tahu, central and

the damage.

Cost savings expected

with new street lights

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A DISTRICT-WIDE replacement

of Selwyn’s old street lights will

get under way in a bid to save

electricity costs.

The district council will replace

its stock

of about 5800

street lights

with LED

technology as

part of a threeyear

renewal

programme.

The New

Zealand

Murray Lemon

Transport

Agency recently

approved a funding business

case for the district council

to replace its lights.

The business case found the

cost of the renewal programme

of $3.3 million would have a payback

period of four to six years

based on the energy cost savings

of the LED lighting.

NZTA has recently increased

its funding assistance rate from

49 per cent, to 85 per cent for

LED street lighting associated

with roads. It is available until

the next financial year.

RENEWAL: Street lights across the district are set to be

replaced with LED technology. ​

A Canterbury Regional

Transport Committee report

said the district council wishes

to take advantage of the NZTA’s

enhanced funding assistance.

Funding has already been

approved by the district council

through its 2017/18 annual plan

for the renewal programme.

District councillor Murray

Lemon said the LED renewal

Been paid out from EQC

or needing a facelift?

light programme was a nobrainer.

“It was an up front cost but

when you look at the operational

cost it virtually paid for itself,” Cr

Lemon said.

District councillors first had a

presentation from district council

staff on the programme about

six months ago.

Comedy night

TICKETS FOR Lincoln’s second

with four weeks to go to the

October 7 event at the Lincoln

Event centre, only 250 tickets are

response from the community

Live in Lincoln,” he said.

“This is our second year and it

just goes to show you that if you

put on a good quality, unique

event, our community will support

it and have a fun night out”

This year an additional comedian

has been added. Ben Hurley

Fire rages, homes at risk

Water quality into lake set to improve

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NEW MEASURES have been

put in place in a bid to monitor

the water quality going into Lake

Ellesmere/Te Waihora.

A resource consent has been

lodged by the Osbornes catchment

management working

party to restrict the type of discharge

running from Osbornes

Drain into the lake.

The Osbornes drainage scheme

is a network of about 9km of

drains operating

over

1620 ha of

farmland and

discharges

into the lake

by a pump

station.

A meeting

Sam Broughton

over the

resource

consent to revive

the drain was held between

the Osbornes catchment management

working party earlier

this month.

District council water asset

manager Murray England said

it was a significant milestone for

the party, who have been working

to get a consent for the last

three years.

The party is made up of representatives

from ECan, Te Runanga

o Ngai Tahu, Te Taumutu

Runanga, Wairewa Runanga,

Department of Conservation,

district council and the Osbornes

drainage committee.

The aim of the consent is to

improve its water quality and

ecosystem health and avoid erosion

and sediment damage of the

drain.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the consent looks at measures to

make sure things are not going

into the lake that shouldn’t be.

The consent aims to improve

water quality and ecosystem

health, avoid erosion and sediment

discharge, reduce adverse

effects of flooding and facilitate

sustainable farming practice.

It will also be limited to water

generated by the construction

and maintenance of the Osbornes

Land Drainage network.

A report prepared for the district

council by environmental

consultant Pattle Delamore

Partners Ltd found water quality

sampling of the Osbornes Drain

indicated high nitrogen and

phosphorus concentrations.

Environment Canterbury’s

Water Quality Index characterised

the water quality in the

drain as poor.

The report said historical

activities such as unmanaged

land uses, such as direct

discharge of dairy effluent and

stock access into the drain is

likely to have contributed to the

build up of contaminants in

sediment.

Plans discussed in the report

include removing all sediment

for the entire length of the Osbornes

Drain.

Before the 1940s it was

estimated Lake Ellesmere/Te

Waihora had about 800 tonnes

reaching it per year.

Since then, the nitrogen load

has increased, accompanied by a

deterioration in water quality.

The Selwyn Te Waihora

section of ECan’s Land and

Water Regional Plan, seeks to

limit the amount of nitrogen

reaching the lake to 4800 tonnes

per year.

Mural back in station

ARTHUR’S PASS railway

station’s colourful mural

has been restored to its

former glory.

More than two years ago,

the station’s historic waiting

the station was

chairman Pete

Neale said the

Neale

restoration comes after at

The mural was first

installed when the station

opened in 1966 after the

previous station burnt

down in 1963.

In 2015, the station

under went a makeover

involving the removal of

asbestos and the relining of

the entire building on the

inside.

Mr Neale said while the

mural should have been

re-installed, this did not

happen at the time.

He said after finally

managing to contact an

employee of KiwiRail’s

resource services department,

permission to have

the mural re-installed was

given.

“In between all this,

the mural went missing

from the back room at the

station. Thankfully, some

work found it stored in a

container near the station,”

Mr Neale said.

responsible sale of liquor,

would be taken.

James St resident Yen

San Lee said another

liquor store was one too

many for small-sized

Lincoln.

“We already have a

bottle store, a New World

and there are going to be

quite a few pubs going in

Lincoln,” she said.

Mrs Lee said her main

concern was residents

not knowing about the

application, because it was

being done “so quietly.”

“Are they trying to turn

this town into a party

town . . . we are an envirotown,

we don’t want to

be an alcohol town,” Mrs

Lee said.

Super Liquor owner

Gulshan Gulati said he

did not want another liquor

store in the township,

but he could not make an

objection due to being a

competitor.

But Deputy Mayor Malcolm

Lyall said he won’t

object to the application

as long as it fits in with

the township’s planning

regulations.

He said while he

wouldn’t like to see a huge

number of liquor stores in

the community, competition

may “sharpen the

pencil” of those supplying

alcohol.

Raising awareness of amazing eels

Rolleston Christian

School pupil Charlie

Johnston writes about the

need to protect eels in

Selwyn

THEY’RE SLIMY, snake-like

and kind of ugly.

Eels in New Zealand are in

trouble, particularly in the Canterbury

and Selwyn area.

I would like to raise the awareness

of these eels so they are still

here for many, many years, and

so that our waterways stay safe

for them.

The short-finned eel and the

long-finned eel both live in Canterbury

waterways including the

Selwyn, Waimakariri, Rakaia,

Avon, Heathcote, and Kaiapoi

Rivers, and Lake Ellesmere.

Both eels are also native to New

Zealand.

New Zealand eels are declining.

Things such as over-fishing,

bad water quality, pollution, river

diversions and drought are just

a few problems facing eels in

Canterbury and New Zealand,

especially the Selwyn River and

Ashley River.

Eels are really amazing fish,

they may not be the most

beautiful creatures, but they are

extraordinary.

CONCERNED: Rolleston Christian School pupil Charlie

Johnston is raising awareness to protect eels in Selwyn.

They are able to stay alive out

of water for three days in a moist

environment.

Long-finned eels travel 2382km

to Pacific islands such as Tonga

where they spawn and die.

Eels can live up to 100-yearsold,

sometimes more, and long

finned eels can grow to 2m.

Two metre eels are usually

females and are also extremely

rare.

Some people in New Zealand

are trying to help save our eels by

rescuing them, protesting or even

creating petitions.

Bay of Plenty’s Bill Kerrison

helps younger eels. As the elvers

(young eels) make their way

upstream, they are stopped by

hydro dams.

Mr Kerrison spends about six

months trapping and relocating

the younger eels further

upstream, where they will spend

more than 50 years before returning

to the sea

Over three months (starting in

autumn) Mr Kerrison spends his

time catching mature breeding

eels and taking them to the other

side of the dam where he releases

them to carry on their journey to

breed.

In 2013, 6766 people signed a

petition to save the long-finned

eel from extinction, but not much

has happened since.

Another reason for saving

eels is that they’re special to

Maori – “an ancient gift from the

gods.”

Tuna (eels) are of great significance

to Maori culturally and

eels are a significant food source

for Maori.

There are more than 100 different

tribal names for eels.

Maoris caught eels using

Hinaki (eel pots), Pa-tuna (eel

weirs), mata rau (spearing) and

many more interesting methods.

Some are still used today

around Lake Ellesmere/Te

Waihora and surrounding rivers.

If you would like to help save

the eels you can:

•Be careful what you dispose of

in your drainage and stormwater

systems

•Pick up rubbish at local rivers

and lakes

•Remove invasive weeds from

rivers and lakes

•You can also let them go when

you catch them (especially big

females)

•Befriend the eels (learn from

them you’ll find that they’re

worth saving)

•If you are going to catch and

kill eels, then only keep what you

need (don’t take too much).

Fire rages, homes at risk

Trevor Thornley writes

about the Green Party’s

plan to charge a bottle

water tax

I READ with interest the recent

article in the Selwyn Times from

Mr Allen, on behalf of Federated

Farmers, commenting on the

Green Party’s plan to charge a 10

cent a litre tax on bottled water

sales.

It seems the general public

are getting rightfully concerned

about the giving away of billions

of litres of free water to largely

overseas owned/controlled

corporations, who are then able

to make windfall profits from

sales of NZ bottled water.

One example being the Coca

Cola Corporation selling a

750ml litre bottle of pure NZ

water for $3.50. Even allowing

for retail and distributor markups

that a horrendous profit for

a product that is given to them

largely for nothing.

It also seems that Federated

Farmers lobby groups are also

getting nervous about the growing

public awareness around water

issues, including the massive

amount of well water required to

produce a litre of milk.

A reasoned rational debate

around this important issue

is a positive step forward,

but lets have it without the

scaremongering comments

attributed to Mr Allen.

Readers respond to

Selwyn Times article on

the ongoing noise at a pet

crematorium

Tracy Legat – Funny

how you complain but you

all brought a house near the

crematorium. It was there before

the houses. Perhaps the district

council should be at fault for allowing

the developers to build so

close to it.

Jacinta Roosing – You are

so right and they only work in

the day time. Lucky it’s not at

night then.

Kerri Lowe – Like buying a

house next to a pub then complaining

about noise.

Justin Simpson – Or people

who buy houses near the airport

and don’t like planes flying

over head so want the airport

to change the direction of the

approach.

Holden Angel Clayton

– Good luck pet crematorium

as I know a lot of us loved petowners

value your service.

Joanne Churcher – The

crematorium has been there

since 1986 so the residents would

have known about it when they

purchased in the area. Suck it up

people, you chose to live there.

Natasha Connor – I have

four of my loved family dogs

come back from Fond Farewells.

I do hope this gets sorted

and you continue to give us

memories. Your service is greatly

admired and appreciated.

Stephanie Hagerty – I

have had 12 animals go through

Fond Farewells over the years

and I think they are wonderful.

So now they build a subdivision

there and the people complain.

No way is this fair on Fond Farewells.

Stick to your guns you will

have a lot of people backing you.

Thank you for a great service.

Tegan Osborne – We live

next to a bunch of businesses

that work on cars and they go

from 6am to 6pm being noisy as

hell. Get over it, you chose to live

there just like I chose to live here.

They were here before I was and

they were there before you were.

Valmae Hughan – We hear

trucks all day and night and

manage to live without complaining

and live in the city. The

crematorium does an awesome

job for family pets, it was there

first and you all knew that before

you bought there, your choice.

Angela Mcalister – You

all bought there knowing the

crematorium was there as it was

there before the subdivision – get

over it. I choose to live where I

do and it is half industrial and a

train track less than 200m away

and we don’t even hear half the

trains go past or the industrial

noise and there is a scrap man

around the corner, harden up.

Jacinta Roosing – With

them working in the day for only

six hours that’s not much and

they have been there since 1986.

Meghann Burrow – They

operate at the lowest level possible.

Maybe they should turn

the noise up and then see who

complains.

Jenny Jarvis: Why buy a

house there if you don’t like

noise, get over it people or move

but whatever stop complaining

Stephanie Hagerty

– Here’s an idea. Buy another

house away from a business that

has been there for 31 years.

Kyle Haugh – It is annoying.

We live right beside them.

Debbie Vuleta – Look

before you buy or build – the

crematorium was there first -

suggest you move if you don’t

like it.

to speed limit

consultation about to

get under way by the

district council

Bob Stewart – I would

like to say that with the

exception of the main

arterial roads such as

Springs Rd and Shands

Rd, most rural roads in the

Selwyn district should be

reduced to 80km/h.

I am constantly amazed

at the number of rural

roads that are narrow,

undulating and winding

that are totally unsafe at

100km/h.

I look forward to a

common sense change to

lower speed limits for roads

that are not engineered and

built to the same standard

as our main route roads

such as state highways.

Thomas Maxwell

– I am a local resident in

Springston. I feel that more

speed limit signs need to be

put up for motorists to see

as they enter and leave the

Springston township area.

Many neighbours share

my feeling that vehicles

drive far too fast through

the township. I live on the

eastern end of Springston,

where the speed limit

changes from 100km/h

down 50km/h.

ISSUE: Vehicle speed in Springston has a resident

concerned.

However, the transition

distance for the average

motorist to reduce vehicle

speed from 100km/h down

to 50km/h is not enough,

and most vehicles (cars,

vans or trucks) are entering

the Springston township

area (a 50km/h speed zone)

doing between 90-70km/h.

My house is the first

house you pass as you come

into Springston, and we

constantly hear throughout

the day fast travelling cars

entering and leaving the

township.

Part of the issue is that

the opposite end of the

township does actually

have a 100 to 70 to 50km/h

transition zone, but our

end of the township does

not, which is by far the

busier end of Springston,

with its proximity to the

Leeston Rd and Ellesmere

Junction Rd “T-junction”.

This junction is busy in

the mornings and evenings,

with commuters making

there way to and from

work.

Fellow Selwyn residents

living beyond Springston

who utilise the Leeston

Rd-Ellesmere Junction Rd

junction, will turn onto

Ellesmere Junction Rd

heading towards Lincoln or

Hornby and will begin to

speed up towards 100km/h

because they see the end

of the limited speed zone

road sign ahead, but not a

50km/h sign.

Overall road and

pedestrian safety

and the Springston

residents general feeling

of comfort and security is

the primary concern I am

raising here.

I understand that the

local neighbourhood

watch group has asked

the district council to do

something about the issue

of motorists speeding

through Springston in the

past, but no action has been

taken yet.

Clearview pupils create mural

to adorn school’s entranceway

CLEARVIEW Primary pupils

have created the school’s first

mural.

The mural features the house

groups, including earth, air,

water and fire, along with the

Waimakariri River and Tane

Mahuta, the school’s symbolic

eye displayed in the middle.

Teacher Adele Allport said

the copper circles on the right

of the mural have the school’s

values imprinted on them –

collaborate, climb, connect,

care, create and curious.

The mural was designed

and painted by 130 pupils

ranging from year 1 through

to year 8.

A small design team first

started working on the mural

with Mrs Allport about 12

months ago.

The mural is 3.6m x 2.4m

long and is on display at the

front of the school.

Mrs Allport said the school’s

property manager Ricky

Hoffmeister also played a large

role in the construction of the

mural’s 3D elements.

The mural was created using

a range of materials including

rope, copper and steel.

Mrs Allport said plans are

already in the pipeline for the

school’s next mural, which

will also go on display at the

entrance of the school.

In spite of the old playcentre

building needing demolition,

it was not closed until last

November. While the new

building was built, it used the

Prebbleton Playcentre and had

shared sessions with the Lincoln

Playcentre.

President Alice Scoulding said

many families have joined the

new centre recently after seeing

Fashion Quarterly

from Kim Taylor —Viva La Moda

Spring is in the air!

A few sunny days have given us a wee taste of the new season

and spring has most definitely sprung in stores.

While we still have some incredible bargains in the winter sales,

the store is mainly full to the brim with

beautiful fresh summer styles.

There are an abundance of

pretty fabrics and colours from

pastel pinks, blues and greens

to vibrant pinks, navy and a

smattering of red.

Tops remain a soft easy fit

so wont cling to you as the

temperature rises.

Dresses are strong once again

this season and there is a real

mixture of lengths and styles

from maxi to mini and

everything in between!

We have pictured the pretty Vassalli

garden blouse ($145) in hues of greys, blues

and white. This is a nice easy top to wear

with jeans or a skirt.

Another pretty Vassalli top ($139) is here

in blue floral and is being worn with

Vassalli white jeans ($165). This top

also looks perfect with blue denim

jeans.

The pretty green floral top with

ultra-feminine styling, featuring lace

detailing is by Seduce ($129).

Another versatile and funky top by

Seduce features neon trim to add

that important pop of colour to add

interest and flair ($99).

A beautiful example of the longer length

in dresses is shown here with the Zafina

muse dress in navy and white print

($199). This dress would take you to a

summer barbeque or dress it up for a

beach wedding.

Another repeat style from Zafina is the

casual and quirky Celeste dress in black

and pink on the front, stripes on the

back( $169). This dress can be worn

casually with sneakers or dressed up

with a pair of sandals. It is a proven

winning style for Zafina.

All of the styles in the images are

available right now at Viva La

Moda so come on down. Let us help

you find some fresh new summer

pieces to inspire you to look and

feel great.

nine earwig species – four native

species and five cosmopolitan

species – all with the

characteristic forceps at the rear.

The largest (up to 33mm long)

of these is the native littoral

earwig that is found at the high

tide mark under kelp, driftwood

or stones.

The most common of the

species is the European earwig

(forficula auricularia), which

was first recorded in New

Zealand in 1898.

This 20mm, flattened, reddishbrown

species is commonly

encountered in your garden,

including in flower heads, woody

crevices and stone fruits such as

apricots or nectarines.

In high densities the species

is considered a pest due to the

significant damage it can cause

to fruit, flowers and vegetable

crops.

However, this earwig can also

be a beneficial biocontrol species

of small insect pests including a

number of aphid and scale insect

species.

In late autumn, both male and

female earwigs burrow in soil to

overwinter.

The female lays a clutch of

50-80 eggs that she cares for by

cleaning and rotating to avoid

fungal growth.

Once hatched, females will

guard their young for about one

month, when they have reached

maturity.

Work to begin on Southbridge courts

SPORTS

• By Gordon Findlater

THE resurfacing of Southbridge

Tennis Club’s four 30-year-old

asphalt courts will begin on

Thursday after six years of

lobbying the district council.

The courts, which are owned

by the club but open to the public,

will be closed from Thursday

and are expected to re-open in

three weeks.

Former club president Phil

Carter has been in charge of

the effort to get the courts

resurfaced and was delighted to

get the news from the district

council recently that it will make

a healthy contribution to the

resurfacing of the courts.

While Carter could not comment

on the district council’s

exact contribution, he said the

cost of the resurfacing the courts

could have crippled the club.

They were badly damaged and

in need of a resurfacing following

the earthquakes.

Until now, the club’s expenses

have been paid for by members

and fundraising.

“Now that we’ve got the go

ahead we can start focussing on

promoting tennis,” said Carter.

The club plans to host an

opening day once the work is

complete, which will double as a

chance for potential new members

to come and enjoy a sausage

sizzle.

It currently has just under 50

members and hosts mid-week

members’ nights and coaching,

as well as Saturday inter-club

competitions. Last summer,

Southbridge won the Ellesmere

division two title.

The club has been in existence

since 1882.

Heritage Funding available

The Selwyn Heritage Fund will open on Monday 11 September for

the 2017 funding round.

A total of $40,000 is available to support projects by owners of

heritage buildings or protected trees. The fund will cover part of

the cost of a project, which may include restoring, reinforcing and

protecting heritage buildings, trees or other structures that have

historical or cultural importance. Applicants will need to fund some

of the cost from other sources.

In 2016 the Selwyn Heritage Fund assisted 15 projects across

the district, including the bell tower refurbishment of St George's

Anglican Church, Kirwee, Tai Tapu School heritage oak tree

pruning, the relocation of Mary's Cottage in Southbridge, and the

reconstruction of the brick fence at St John the Evangelist Catholic

Church in Leeston.

Priority is given to items listed in the Selwyn District Plan. Funding

cannot be used for routine maintenance, or for improvements which

are of personal or commercial benefit.

Applicants need to include at least two quotes from suitably

qualified tradespeople for the cost of the work involved.

Applications close on Friday 20 October 2017.

Visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/heritagefund or email

heritagefund@selwyn.govt.nz for information and an application form.

Consultation is now open on proposals to reduce speed limits on some rural Selwyn roads and

around townships.

The proposed changes include extending 50 and 70 km/hr zones on the outskirts of several

townships, and extending or introducing 80 km/hr limits on some rural roads in eastern Selwyn.

The proposals follow a Council review of speed limits across the district, and include changes

requested by residents and local community committees. Crash data is also used to help identify

areas where reduced limits may be needed.

Townships where lower speed limits are proposed to be extended include Castle Hill, Leeston,

Lincoln, Prebbleton, Rolleston, the Rolleston industrial area, and West Melton.

An 80 km/hr limit is proposed on rural roads adjoining the Christchurch city boundary, including

Maddisons Road and extending out to Tai Tapu, Lincoln and Rolleston. The existing 80 km/hr speed

limit on rural roads in the Prebbleton area would also be extended out to Lincoln and Rolleston.

Selwyn District Council Assets Manager Murray Washington says the proposal reflects the growth

of many Selwyn townships.

Selwyn’s population is continuing to grow steadily, bringing with it new subdivisions and higher

volumes of traffic,” he says. “Commercial and industrial activity is also increasing, with more

heavy vehicles on our roads.

“It’s appropriate that we review the speed limits from time to time, to make sure our roading

network is safe for all users, that speed limits are appropriate for the conditions, and that we

encourage safe driving.”

The Council plans to approve the new limits before the end of the year. Consultation on the

proposal is open until Friday 27 October. To view detailed maps and provide feedback, visit

www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay.

Spending up as Selwyn economy grows

Latest economic data shows Selwyn’s economy is continuing to grow – with retail and tourism

spending growth outstripping regional and national averages during the year to June 2017.

The June quarterly economic monitor from analysts Infometrics shows retail sales increased by 7% on

the same quarter last year, compared to 3.6% for New Zealand, and 1.5% for the Canterbury region.

Spending was also up in the tourism sector, with the visitor spend for the year rising from $89 million in

2016 to $95 million in 2017 – a 7% increase. During the same period the New Zealand average rose by

5.9%, while the Canterbury region increased by 3.5%.

Unemployment in Selwyn averaged 2.3% for the year, slightly up from 2% a year earlier but below the

New Zealand average of 5% and the Canterbury region at 3.9%.

Overall economic growth in Selwyn was moderate, with gross domestic product increasing by 1.1%

during the year – below the New Zealand average of 2.8%, but ahead of the Canterbury regional figure

of 0.8%.

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says the spending growth is a positive sign for the Selwyn economy, at a

time when overall economic activity is easing off from previously high levels.

“It’s pleasing to see the district maintain its economic activity,” he says. “The easing in growth was

always expected, as Canterbury reached its construction peak post-earthquake.

“There are positive signals for the coming year – the number of building consents the council is

processing remain strong, and a stronger dairy payout is anticipated.”

In the June quarter the Council issued a total of 357 new dwelling building consents – the highest

quarterly total since December 2015.

The full Infometrics economic monitor is available at: www.selwyn.govt.nz/services/economic-development.

DARFIELD

New exhibition

evokes imagination

The newest exhibition at Darfield’s

Selwyn Gallery, ‘Surrealists – What Dreams

May Come’, features a wonderful mix of

whimsical. Their intricate details evoke

wonder and imagination, making this

‘different’ exhibition not to be missed. The

exhibitors are talented artists, Jinx, Dave

Pearson, and John Burns.

A work by Dave Pearson.

Jinx in the Sky

Originally from Austria, Jinx in the Sky

moved to New Zealand in 2006.

She finds inspiration in dreams,

emotions, and song lyrics. Sometimes

even small things such as sunlight passing

through coloured glass or just a striking

colour combination can trigger ideas for

new paintings.

“This series of paintings is inspired by

my love for botanic gardens and Victorian

glasshouses. The glasshouse in my paintings

serves as a little retreat. A place to relax…

safe oasis to daydream in…a fortress of

inner peace and light. Under the glass, safe

from the elements, it provides a special

place to nurture what brings us joy, what

makes us happy, what keeps us sane.”

David Pearson

Dave Pearson has been drawing as far

back as his early primary

school days. His favourite

things to draw at the time

were tanks, skeletons, and

dungeons. After many years

of scratching around with

biro and paper, he searched

for a suitable medium to

finally take his ideas and rough

drawings through to finished

work. In 2010 Dave signed up to do

a digital concept design workshop in

Wellington, and was hooked.

Fantasy art and design in the movie

industry have been his major influences.

Dave’s goal is to develop his painting

technique and style, and do commissioned

work for book and album covers.

John Burns

John and his wife live in the village of

Otira, which he describes as “a place of

dynamic weather, high mountains, rivers

and waterfalls, native birds and animals, all

the simple things we love most”.

“I have been an artist for a very long

time, sold works through galleries and

our own gallery here in Otira. My art is in

a state of constant evolution. Some have

stories, some are crazy, gentle, mad, kind,

thoughtful, different, and that’s a word I

hear a lot about my art, and a word I like...

to be different.”

John is proud to say he has never been

to art school. He began painting portraits,

but now is only interested in painting

contemporary art, including modernist

illustrations of people, including Maori

women. John’s wife, Di Gordon-Burns, has

written a collection of children’s books,

which Burns plans to illustrate: “I’ve done

the cover and it’s like no other children’s

book.”

Second speed

indicator

to be installed

Following the installation of a first road

speed indicator at Weedons Ross Road

in West Melton by the Selwyn District

Council, residents were keen to see a

second one installed.

They were concerned that the growth in

the town’s population was seeing increased

driving speed in the district, and around

the local school.

The West Melton Residents’ Association

carried out a survey to determine where

people wanted the second one to be

installed, and the preferred location was

the eastern approach on SH73.

Selwyn District Council Road Engineer

Mark Chamberlain said the road speed

indicator should be installed during

September.

“The indicator has been ordered, but it has

not been delivered yet,” Mr Chamberlain

said.

“It will be installed on SH73 initially, but

it can be moved to other locations. The

western approach to West Melton is the

second preferred site.”

Installation of the indicator requires a

ground socket to be installed at each site

with the device and pole placed in the

socket, Mr Chamberlain said.

“The cost for the speed indicator is about

$8000 supplied and installed, which is the

same as the other speed indicator devices

in the district,” he said.

Chairman of the West Melton Residents

Association, Jeff Waters, said the association

had some discretionary funding available,

which was being used for this purpose.

The Selwyn District Council has speed

indication devices installed throughout the

district, Mr Chamberlain said.

“Anecdotally and from observation,

we have found that traffic slows down to

close to or below the speed limit when the

‘SLOW DOWN’ message is displayed.

“Once the speed limit is reached, the

actual speed of the vehicle is then displayed.”

Tapping into

community

resources

Initiator of Community Awareness Support Selwyn (C.A.S.S.) Peter

Stafford has always been interested in sustainable living, conservation,

self-sufficiency and water quality.

C.A.S.S. is a new initiative focusing on co-operative marketing,

and an open door for promoting local products and innovations at

a grassroots community level, connecting with cafe and car boot sale

operations, Peter says.

“I believe in the principle of the power of one to change things,

but at the end of the day community living and sharing skills and

resources has to be that ultimate goal,” Peter says.

“Surviving and thriving off-grid is a very attractive principle to

work towards,” he says.

“There are many marketing opportunities to be explored in this arena

as highlighted in the accompanying advertisement. Communication

networking and co-operating with the local community may very

well be our future lifeline.

“Being an ex-farmer and understanding the principle of the

number 8 wire and the forgotten home remedies, traditions and

with an appreciation of the depth of knowledge available within the

community I would like to tap into this valuable resource.

“My worldview embraces the life and times of Jesus Christ and the

golden rule ‘Do unto others’,” Peter says.

Family-run

building firm

offers skills

& innovation

Based in West Melton, Brewster Building

is a local, family-run business whose

mission is to add value for clients and

provide a high standard of workmanship

across every building project they

undertake.

Owner Dean Brewster, who grew up in the

Selwyn District and established his building

business in 2012, says collaboration is also

a key aspect of his operation.

“For us it’s about bringing together a lot

of industry people – the sub-contractors,

the professional services like architects and

engineers, and combining their expertise

with our knowledge, foresight and skills to

make the process as smooth as possible for

our clients.”

Innovation is another important aspect

of Brewster Building’s philosophy, and

with demand for eco or ‘green’ homes

continually growing, Dean and his team are

applying their innovative ideas to this type

of building design.

“They bring a

fresh perspective to

the design process,

but they also throw

up some technical

challenges, which

we work through

with the architects

and engineers.”

As technology

develops and

improves, products such as solar heating

panels are becoming a lot more efficient

and less expensive, so having that valuable

energy-saving facility in your home

becomes a lot more achievable, Dean says.

Storing water to provide thermal mass

is another innovative way of saving energy

and using water more efficiently, and this

can be incorporated into an eco home

design, too.

“It’s very enjoyable bringing out these

different ideas to inspire our clients,” Dean

says.

“When clients approach us about having

a home built, we like to get to know them

and find out what they are looking for and

how we can provide that. We also have

contacts with a lot of product suppliers, tile

companies for example, so we can put our

clients in touch with them so they can see

what’s available and what they like.

“Having a home built can be a daunting

process, so we break the process down into

steps to make it run smoothly and have

smiling, happy clients at the end of the

process.”

M.bovis finds not

a surprise to Feds

Federated Farmers (Feds) was

disappointed, but not surprised, to learn of

three new finds of stock with Mycoplasma

bovis.

The affected properties confirmed by the

Ministry for Primary Industries last week

are all linked to Van Leeuwen Group farms

where the cattle disease was first identified

last month.

“This latest identification is obviously

disappointing but it was anticipated as the

animals were traced back to the origin of

the initial outbreak,” Federated Farmers

biosecurity spokesperson Guy Wigley said.

“It’s important to keep things in

perspective and not unnecessarily increase

anxiety levels amongst farmers. The reality

is it exists in most countries and they

manage it just fine with trade unaffected.

“We know the frustration out there, but

this is a complex bacterial infection which

we have never encountered before here in

New Zealand.”

Mr Wigley said MPI was throwing

significant resources at containing the

disease and was remaining positive that it

could be eradicated.

“From what I understand, testing is

rigorous, with the MPI animal health

laboratory expecting to test more than

39,000 samples in an extensive surveillance

programme over the next three months.”

Feds is supporting MPI’s efforts to

communicate with farmers, providing

information via fact sheets, websites and

public meetings.

“Affected farmers are being informed on

a regular basis about sample results. The

fact is, it’s going to take several months to

ascertain a definitive result,” Mr Wigley

said.

Feds has heard talk among farmers who

are concerned about MPI’s inability to

identify affected properties, because of the

Privacy Act.

“Apart from the obligations under the

law, this is not the time to incriminate other

farmers who may be in a stressful state,” Mr

Wigley said.

“MPI is doing what it is obligated to do,

and that is to acknowledge the privacy rights

of those farmers who have bovis identified

in their herds. It’s not a question of secrecy

– it’s about protecting individual farmers

and their businesses from unwelcome and

unhelpful publicity.”

Farmers are advised to stay vigilant and

report immediately to their vet any signs in

their cattle of mastitis that doesn’t respond

to treatment, pneumonia, arthritis and lateterm

abortions.

“We all need to stay together if we are to

tackle this nasty cattle disease. That way, we

have a chance to eliminate it.

“The industry as a whole is working with

MPI and farmers themselves can do their

bit, by practising best farm biosecurity

measures through good hygiene and

cleaning equipment and making sure you

maintain separation between neighbouring

herds,” Mr Wigley said.

Event marks first steps

in building joint facility

The facility, scheduled for practical completion in 2020, will

accommodate 700 scientists and students who will work and learn in

a new, shared environment, to produce innovations for New Zealand’s

primary industries and help grow the New Zealand economy.

The start of work on a world-class $206

million joint facility to house AgResearch

and Lincoln University researchers,

students and staff is being viewed as an

important step forward for agriculture,

science and education in New Zealand.

The facility, scheduled for practical

completion in 2020, will accommodate

700 scientists and students who will work

and learn in a new, shared environment,

to produce innovations for New Zealand’s

primary industries and help grow the New

Zealand economy.

The facility will be jointly owned by

AgResearch and the university and

DairyNZ will be a tenant.

Leaders from AgResearch and Lincoln

University were joined by Minister of

Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment,

and Minister for Science and Innovation,

Paul Goldsmith in marking the early work

being underway on the site of the new

facility on August 22.

Speaking at the event, AgResearch chief

executive Tom Richardson said: “There’s

been a lot of work done to get to this point

of having a spade in the ground, and the

site now being prepared for the 27,000

square metre building.

“It’s now very much a reality, and I

think there is a real sense of anticipation

that we are going to have a facility that is

something quite special, and that the new

way of working together is going to make a

real difference where it comes to the results

we produce to support the land-based

industries.”

Lincoln University Chancellor Steve

Smith called it a historic day.

“Lincoln’s future in the national tertiary

system and its national and international

standing will be defined by what happens

within the walls of these buildings that

will become the first physical home for the

Lincoln Hub.

“The opportunity for Lincoln University

– one which we intend to seize – is to

unleash the potential inherent in having

our teachers and students working

alongside and partnering with the leadingedge

scientists from AgResearch, other

CRIs and industry.

“The real power in learning and

research comes from proximity: human

relationships, being in the same space,

chance conversations and the synergies

observed between different academic and

scientific disciplines,” Mr Smith said.

Minister Goldsmith was also joined by

representatives from Lincoln University

and AgResearch at the event in signing a

scroll to be placed in a time capsule, which

will eventually be incorporated into the

site.

Selwyn MP Amy Adams and Selwyn

Mayor Sam Broughton also attended the

event.

SELWYN TIMES

Spring is a busy season

GET PLANTING: Prepare the flower beds for

summer colour and get in plants that transcend

the seasons.

IT’S TIME for gardeners to

celebrate.

Temperatures are on

the rise, producing signs

of spring throughout the

garden.

September can be a wet

and windy month so ensure

you still protect plants

where need be. It’s a busy

but very enjoyable time,

with colour and scents

slowly coming back into the

garden.

Final harvesting and

removal of winter maturing

vegetables gives plenty

of material for the compost

bin. By staggering planting

times, hopefully these vegetables

have supplied you

with continuous supplies

over winter.

Where conditions allow,

ie soil not too wet and

temperatures rising in your

area, you can plant the hardier

vegetables for summer

harvesting. Remember the

more traditional summer

vegetables will be planted

next month.

Those veges can include;

asparagus, beetroot, cabbage,

cauliflower, carrots,

onion, radish, silverbeet and

spinach. Improve existing

vege plots with plenty of

compost before planting

the new seasons vegetables.

Keep a wary eye for slugs

and snails as they emerge

when temperatures increase.

Time for preparing your

summer flowering garden.

Winter annuals are now

coming to an end of their

flowering. While it’s still

a little early for planting traditional

summer annuals,

there are some that ‘transcend’

the typical growing

seasons and are very useful

GERMINATE: Seedlings

should be ready for

transplanting into the

garden in six to eight

weeks.

at this time of year.

These include alyssum,

calendulas, cornflower,

lobelia, pansies and violas.

If you wish to grow your

own summer flowering annuals,

seed should be sown

now either in a glasshouse

or in a warm, north facing

enclosed patio.

Sow and water regularly

to ensure even germination.

Seedlings should be ready

for transplanting into the

garden six to eight weeks

after sowing.

Carefully mark the

position of your winter and

spring flowering bulbs as

you may wish to grow other

plants in the same area over

summer months.

Where the bulbs have

performed well, allow them

to naturalise where they are

growing. This applies especially

to crocus, freesias,

hyacinths, iris, lachenalias,

muscari, narcissus, and

watsonias.

Stone fruit such as apricots,

cherries, nectarines,

peaches and plums are all in

bloom now, as are pip fruit

such as apples and pears.

Hopefully, weather conditions

allow for pollination

by bees. Last year’s heavy

rainfall had a major impact

on pollination.

Rose growth is finally

under way. Spring/early

summer is the best time

for roses with masses of

blooms and plants usually

disease free. The addition

of compost around the base

of existing plants is beneficial

for plant health. Start

feeding roses from October

onwards with fertiliser.

Cut lawns regularly in

early spring, avoiding close

mowing initially. First lawn

fertiliser can be applied

in late September/early

October.

Hold your

shovels!

With the sun making an appearance for longer

through the day, we definitely get the feeling that

the spring weather is almost here. With this being

said, we can still get some late frosts and nasty

weather through the beginning of September, so

hold onto your shovels and refrain from planting

seedlings just yet. There are still plenty of things

you can do before you plant out. Preparing your

soil is very important. If you want to grow good

veggies, you need to put them in good growing

mix. For existing gardens that need a boost, add

in our Organic Compost. If you are establishing

a new garden, look to our Garden Soil Mix, or

Veggie Garden Mix, depending on what you are

planting. If you are unsure of what products you

need, check out our website www.igro.co.nz or

come and have a chat to our friendly team.

ADVERTORIAL

South Point at Faringdon is

proving a popular place to visit for

the people of Rolleston and those

further afield. With its boutique

shops and restaurants as well as a

convenience store and dance school

this is really becoming a favourite

place to visit for the people of

Rolleston.

Selwyn School of Dance

The Selwyn School of Dance is

gearing up for a busy few weeks

with a dance recital as well as Royal

Academy of Dance ballet exams to

be held shortly.

This year’s production, The

Golden Ticket, involves about 140

children from the Contemporary,

Hip Hop, Jazz, Musical Theatre

and Theatre craft classes. This will

be a vibrant and lively display and

showcase the wonderful energy,

work and skills these children have

gained through their classes.

There are two performances at

Middleton Grange School on 9

September. If you would like to

buy tickets, visit the Selwyn School

of Dance Facebook page or email

admin@selwynschoolofdance.co.nz.

Dance school director Emma

Body is also taking enrolments for

term 4 so if your daughter or son is

keen to learn, please email her on

info@selwynschoolofdance.co.nz.

A Pocket Full of Spices

This wonderful Indian restaurant

is now open and satisfying locals

with five star food and equivalent

service.

At A Pocket Full of Spices the

spices they use enhance the natural,

organic essence of the food creating

perfect combinations to delight your

tastebuds.

They promise the food, the

ambience, the service together with

the smiles will make for the ultimate

dining pleasure, the like of which

you will not find anywhere else.

Owner Sandeep is proud of

the reputation he has built at his

Rangiora curry house – in fact it is

ranked number 1 restaurant out of

41 in Rangiora on Trip Advisor.

“We really want to deliver the

same for everyone in Rolleston with

quality food and the best service for

our customers.”

Hooked Fish & Chips

A lot of things have changed

at Hooked Fish and Chips. Fully

qualified chef Ben has now bought

the business and has changed the

style of fish and chips – also making

it more cost effective for families.

“We are now offering fish and

chips the old school way we all love

to eat them. The sort you used to get

30 years ago – where the fish is fresh

and battered in store so you get your

favourite takeaway that has had a bit

more love and attention.”

Here you will find deep sea

cod and hoki as the staples with a

variety of other fish when available

including snapper and groper. There

are also burgers made with proper

flavours and four different chip

varieties to choose from. For those

with a sweet tooth there are even

desserts.

The business is also offering

catering options for businesses or

parties. So if you would like your

event or business lunch catered for

Ben is only too happy to help.

There are also great services and

retail options with Hair 4 Men

barber shop, New Order fashion

boutique, The Pedal Pusher and the

Faringdon Convenience Store all

located at South Point so make sure

you make the time to visit.

Keeping

safe during

open homes

Selling a home can be a stressful process, so it

makes sense to minimise any hassles wherever

possible. If you’ve taken all the sensible

precautions, you shouldn’t need to worry about

holding an open home.

There’s a lot to consider when putting

your home on show during the selling

process. While you want your property

to look attractive to potential buyers,

you don’t want them to advertise your

precious belongings to anyone with ill

intent. As in most circumstances, a bit of

common sense goes a long way.

To start with, you should feel completely

confident about your real estate agent.

Licensed real estate agents are bound by

the Code of Conduct, which means they

have a clear responsibility to safeguard

your property. If you have any concerns

about holding open homes, or having

viewings of your property, it’s important

to discuss these with the agent so you can

both feel comfortable. They can advise

you on any precautions to take as part of

preparing the property for sale.

When you’re getting ready to put the

property on the market, the New Zealand

Police National Crime Prevention

Centre recommends checking with your

insurance provider so you know what

your policy covers. Make sure you have

enough insurance to cover any potential

property damage, or any valuables. Let

trusted neighbours know the dates of any

upcoming open homes or viewings, and

ask them to keep an eye out for anything

unusual.

The Police also suggest that you store

any valuables well out of sight before you

hold your first open home, or make the

property available for viewing. The most

commonly stolen items include money,

jewellery, office equipment, clothing,

electronics, and firearms. Photograph

and record serial numbers (these can

also be uploaded to the SNAP website:

www.snap.org.nz).

It can be helpful to make a checklist to

streamline the process and ensure you

don’t overlook anything. It’s a good idea

to hide your calendars – open home

viewers don’t need to know when you

plan to be away, or where you’re planning

to go. Put away family photos, and lock

away any passports, spare keys, financial

statements and credit cards. Store any

alcohol and prescription drugs out of

sight and preferably out of the reach of

children.

On the day of the open home, it is best

to wait at the property until the agent

arrives so you can officially pass the

security responsibility to them. Be sure

to walk the agent through the property

and orient them as needed. Ask them if

you can help them close up at the end of

the open home. Together you can check

the property, including any storage areas

and outside spaces. Double check all the

locks on windows and doors to make sure

they are secured as they were before the

viewing started.

Selling a home can be a stressful process,

so it makes sense to minimise any hassles

wherever possible. If you’ve taken all the

sensible precautions, you shouldn’t need

to worry about holding an open home.

Escape to the Country!! Aylesbury Area

Situated in the Aylesbury area, this property

is within reach of many. Our Vendors have

enjoyed its space and privacy since 2003 and

now have new plans.

A warm 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home offers

a safe cosy environment situated on 7237 sqm

2 bay shed plus numerous other out buildings

for those toys! Great areas for kids to play and

central to Kirwee, Darfield, West Melton and

even Rolleston. Come and view this fantastic

property before it is too late.

Kitchen Pantries

Many people enjoy having one as it offers more accessible storage and a place

out of the way to prepare food, hide the mess and even do the washing up.

A standard in many homes, pantries

disappeared out of kitchens for a time.

More recently, they have made a comeback

and are now almost a standard fixture in

new house designs.

The options for pantries range from

large corner units produced by a kitchen

manufacturer to walk-in pantries that are

a room within the home, usually located

behind or at one end of a kitchen.

A walk-in pantry is a room that is of

sufficient size for a person to comfortably

walk around.

Also known as a larder, a pantry’s main

purpose is storage for food, beverages and

cooking condiments. Crockery, linen and

even household cleaning products, which

were traditionally stored in a butler’s

pantry may now be kept there.

In the United States, the pantry might

also be a small entryway with an exterior

door.

Butler’s or serving pantries were

historically located between the kitchen

and dining room in middle class homes.

Today, a butler’s pantry may have benches,

sinks and kitchen appliances such as

dishwasher and refrigerator.

While storage is the main purpose of

a pantry, a scullery was a place for food

preparation and washing dishes, pots

and other items. It may have doubled as a

laundry in some houses.

With open plan living, there has been

a shift from the kitchen as the main work

area towards pantries being mini-kitchens

with a sink and kitchen appliances.

A walk-in or butler’s pantry offers a

number of advantages:

• an out-of-the-way place to prep and hide

the mess from food preparation, dirty

dishes or other items.

• a place to store those accumulated

kitchen appliances.

• it can be permanently set up for breakfast

with toaster, jug and tray of spreads at the

ready.

• saves the kitchen island for family

gathering, eating and reading.

• allows the kitchen to become a social

gathering area.

• converts the kitchen from a workroom

into a living area with book shelves,

seating areas and a more decorative layout.

• can save on cabinetry if only shelving

is installed in the pantry with less in the

kitchen.

• locating the dishwasher there can cut

noise in the living area.

The negatives of a pantry include:

• higher building costs as it increases the

square metres as well as another wall, door

and potentially more shelving, cupboards

and sinks.

• it is another area to clean.

• the room could be dark if no window.

• if preparation is carried out in the pantry,

the person is shut away from the family.

While the major drawback of including

a pantry is the added building costs, many

people enjoy having one as it offers more

accessible storage and a place out of the

way to prepare food, hide the mess and

even do the washing up.

Appliances are often located

in pantries today.

Kitchens are less a workroom and more a living space.

Pantries without a window

can be dark.

Pantries with only shelving can

save on cabinetry.
