Intersections on dangerous list

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RURAL intersections in Selwyn

are rated the second most

dangerous in New Zealand.

Data shows as of May this year,

three fatal or serious crashes

were recorded at rural intersections

within the district.

Selwyn ranks below Hamilton,

which also had three fatal or serious

crashes recorded at its rural

intersections.

The information was released

by the New Zealand Transport

Agency, using data from its crash

analysis system.

It was discussed at the district

council’s road safety subcommittee

meeting last week as

part of a report from committee

chairwoman and district councillor

Nicole Reid.

Inspector Peter Cooper said

the statistics were not a surprise.

He believed Selwyn had more

stop signs at rural intersections

than any other area in the country,

he said.

“When you drive around in

Selwyn you come to so many

double intersections with stop

signs each way and they are all

high speed, 80 to 100km/ph.

That is what heightens the risk,”

he said.

Mrs Reid said the district’s

landscape was another reason.

“Our roads go for quite some

distance so if you are distracted

there is the potential to miss the

intersection coming up,” she

said.

Other factors included a boom

in population and increase in

traffic numbers, and the mix of

local, commuter and city traffic.

A trial of solar-powered flashing

LED signs, which have been

in place at some of the district’s

most dangerous intersections for

the past 18 months, is set to be

evaluated next month.

The idea was first put forward

by Sergeant Dan Harker. He and

his pregnant wife were nearly

killed after they were hit by another

car while driving through

an intersection in the district

about 20 years ago.

Sergeant Harker said the trial

had produced positive results.

“It is working, that is the main

thing...there haven’t been any

crashes at any of the sites, when

there normally would have been

up to 11. They work,” he said.

Mrs Reid said the committee

needed to review the effectiveness

of its road safety activities

and its road visibility.

The committee resolved to

hear from various agencies

involved including police and

NZ Trucking Association, about

what programmes were in place

to reduce risk.

A speed limit review is also

underway by the district council.

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

A GREAT effort on Saturday by

the Te Ara Kākāriki Greenway

Canterbury Trust which planted

1000 trees and shrubs on Ken

and Denise McKenzie’s property

which was devastated by the

Port Hills fires (see page 7).

The house was saved but the

vegetation was destroyed by the

huge blaze which raged through

the area.

Trusts like the Te Ara

Kākāriki Greenway Canterbury

Trust have a very important role

in society, but the key to their

hard work is the people – so well

done.

Also today (page 1), we reveal

data showing Selwyn’s intersections

are the second most dangerous

in New Zealand. That’s

not surprising.

At the end of the day it is in

the hands of the driver. Intersections

don’t cause crashes; drivers

do. Let’s be careful out there.

Lincoln High beards:

School sets out facial hair rules

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LINCOLN HIGH School has

set the ground rules for its new

trial allowing students to grow

facial hair.

It is dropping its clean-shaven

only rule after its students

won a year-long

campaign for

facial hair.

A board of

trustees meeting

was held last

week to finalise

Kathy

Paterson

the rules and

the length of the

trial period. The

new rules require

facial hair to be tidy and no

longer than 3cm.

Facial hair must be groomed

and not extend on to the neck.

Longer beards may be allowed

for medical or cultural reasons.

Board of trustees chairman

Adrian Paterson said he does

not think the length of

the beards will be an issue.

“I don’t think anyone will be

running around with a ruler

to see if it is 3cm or not. It can

grow longer than a stubble but

we are not looking for full-on

old man beard,” he said.

Mr Paterson said the school

received a positive response for

the trial.

“We expected if anyone was

upset they would be getting in

touch but we haven’t really had

any of that,” he said.

The trial is expected to run

until the end of next year when

it will be reassessed.

“It is a trial period so we

are not tied to it forever, but

if it works well it is great,” Mr

Paterson said.

Principal Kathy Paterson said

she was happy with the process

the school went through to

make the decision.

An earlier survey of staff,

students and parents at the

school found many supported

allowing facial hair.

But Mrs Paterson said

she did not see the need to

release the survey.

LINCOLN EVENT CENTRE

SATURDAY

7 OCTOBER

NEW TRIAL: Lincoln

High School has laid

down the rules as part

of its new beard trial

for students.

“We have used the student

voice, we co-constructed the

outcome with the students.

There is no need at all. There

is a very strong voice for the

students to be tidy and well

represented,” she said.

LIQUOR STORE CRITICS

An application for an off-licence

liquor store in Lincoln has

received 161 objections. Objections

to the proposed Liquorland

Lincoln on Vernon Drive

closed on Wednesday. A district

council spokesman said no date

had been set for a hearing as

the objection period just closed.

Another outlet, Lincoln Bottle

Store, wants to open on Gerald

St, about 100m from existing

off-licence, Super Liquor. It has

received 100 objections and a

hearing date is yet to be established.

SPEED LIMIT REVIEW

The district council is seeking

feedback on planned changes to

speed limits across the district.

The changes have been planned

following a district-wide review

of speed limits, and reflect the

growth in population and traffic

volume in Selwyn. Areas in

which it is planned to lower

speeds limits include Castle Hill,

Leeston, Lincoln, Prebbleton,

Rolleston and West Melton.

Feedback is open until Friday,

October 27, 5pm. For more

“My first pair of hearing aids...”

- Helen Beaumont’s Story

“Towards the end of last year I started to notice I

was struggling to hear. My husband had suggested I

should get my hearing checked. Honestly I thought

is was probably a build-up of wax in my ears. I

thought I didn’t need the hearing test or perhaps I

didn’t want to acknowledge it.

I finally booked an appointment to see Brenna.

When she checked – I had no wax in either ear! I

remember sitting in her hearing booth and wondering

why I was having such a detailed test – but,

I was finding it hard to hear the words that I was

meant to be repeating!

After the test was completed Brenna explained the

results and told me that I had a “moderate hearing

loss”. What a shock – I think I said “you’re kidding

me”. My shock was obvious and Brenna showed so

much empathy, and was so good dealing with my

emotions. Brenna said I would definitely benefit

from hearing aids and explained how they would

help me.

When I went back for a follow up appointment 2

weeks later I asked my husband to come with me.

Brenna had programmed some trial hearing aids

to suit my hearing loss and she showed me how to

put them on. I couldn’t believe it! it was amazing,

like a different world – I had tears running down

my face. I am sure the look on my face showed it

all. I said “I’ve got to have these”. Brenna explained

the various options that would be best suited to

me. There were various prices and getting my head

around investing that much in myself was a challenge

at the time. My husband agreed that I should

get them and ultimately it was an easy decision.

I have had follow up appointments with Brenna to

fine tune things and to help me get accustomed to

being a hearing aid wearer. She has been exceptional,

I can call her and see her whenever I need

advice. Given that I didn’t realise I needed an

audiologist at all, I am glad I chose Brenna. She is

caring and approachable and always there if I need

anything or have a question.

I honestly love my hearing aids. They are tiny so

you cannot even see them. I think the reason I was

upset when I found out I had a hearing loss is that

I pictured “Radar”, an old gentleman I remember

from childhood who had a huge contraption to help

him hear. Times have changed. My hearing aids are

connected to my iphone, I can make adjustments,

and when it rings, I hear it through the hearing aids.

It’s incredible! Although the first time the phone

rang, I must say I didn’t know what to do! Needless

to say there has been some fun in my getting

used to blue-tooth. I also remember the first time

getting into my car after having my aids fitted – the

radio and indicators were SO LOUD – it was amazing.

Evidence enough that my hearing was worse

than I had realised.

I am so happy. The clarity and crispness of sound

is fantastic. It sounds like a cliché, but hearing the

birds chirping again is such a joy. I guess because

hearing loss is gradual you don’t notice things that

slip away. Is life better? Yes! Even playing golf is

more enjoyable. I saw the tag line “Love your hearing”

at Brenna’s clinic and I can honestly say that I

now do. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

A THIRD of the $195 million

Southern Motorway upgrade has

been finished.

The Christchurch Southern

Motorway Stage 2 is on target

to be ready by early 2020, which

will see a section of Main South

Rd widened to four lanes and

the project linked up to the

Halswell Junction Rd end of the

motorway.

Work on the major project has

been under way since November

and is set to ramp up as summer

approaches.

The motorway aims to halve

the travel time between Rolleston

and Christchurch from 30 to

about 15min.

Over winter, more than

300,000 cu m of earth was

moved, two new roads built

and the first of eight bridges has

almost been completed.

New roads Tiptree Lane and

Manion Rd are open, along with

construction at Justine Drive

having just begun.

PROGRESS: A new bridge (above) on Main South Rd, north

of Rolleston, is 80 per cent complete. Work continues on the

new motorway extension looking south from Waterholes Rd

to Robinsons Rd with two lanes in each direction and a central

median barrier.

THEN AND NOW:

A team of volunteers

Rd residents Ken and

Denise McKenzie

replant their property,

which was badly burnt

in the Port Hills fires.

Volunteers replant after fire damage

MORE THAN 60 people pitched

in on Saturday to help a couple

whose property was devastated

in the Port Hills fires.

They volunteered their time to

plant about 1000 native seedlings

on Ken and Denise McKenzie’s

Early Valley Rd farm.

The house was saved during

the fires by helicopters dousing

it with monsoon buckets, but the

land was left badly damaged.

The couple’s plantings of native

trees, some which were 25 years

old, were burnt in the fires.

Mr McKenzie said he was left

touched by the work volunteers

had put in. He and his wife never

would have achieved what the

volunteers did in a morning, he

said.

“It was amazing,” he said.

The event was organised by Te

Ara Kākāriki Greenway Canterbury

Trust coordinator Elizabeth

Guthrey.

About 40 volunteers were

registered with the trust while

another 20 associated with the

farm helped on the day.

Mr McKenzie described it as

a wave of planting that moved

across the hill.

The couple had planned to

divide their farm before the fires,

with two thirds for grazing and

one third native habitat.

When Mrs McKenzie’s first

plantings matured enough to

produce seed, she had collected

and potted the seed to plant in

other parts of their farm.

Many of the plants she had

sprouted herself burned to the

ground.

The trust has now written

a restoration plan for the Mc-

Kenzie’s property and plans to

continue helping them by contributing

more volunteers and

funds in the future. The trust is

planning to plant again at the

farm in August next year.

Mud race finally gets green light

WILD WEATHER almost

caused the district’s muddiest

event of the year to be postponed

for a third time.

After having to delay the

Sheffield Mud Plug twice,

organisers were concerned the

event was going to have to be

cancelled for good.

But with a lot of persuasion

from landowner Derek Bull, who

held the event on his farm, the

organisers decided to attempt to

run the event.

Sheffield Volunteer Fire

Brigade chief officer Neville

Croy, who helped organise the

event, said it was a great decision

and they could not have got a

better day.

He thanked everyone who

made this event successful,

enjoyable and safe.

The fun day required fourwheel

drivers to race through 12

muddy obstacle courses.

All proceeds went to the

Sheffield Volunteer Fire Brigade

and Malvern Order of St John.

The amount raised from the

day is still being counted. About

2000 people came through the

gate to take part in the 4x4 event.

Mr Croy said some entrants

took the sport seriously with one

Two classes were run on the

day – a manufactory’s class and a

“We had a full field of

competitors – 41 entries which is

the maximum we can take,” Mr

Croy said.

The manufactory’s class

Nathan Hammond won the

buggy class.

It is the fourth year in a row

Mr Satherley has won the event.

Competitors travelled from as

far as Nelson and Dunedin to

take part. But the day would not

have been complete without a

couple of vehicles tipping over.

One driver tipped twice in

the morning and once in the

afternoon. But Mr Croy said the

only injury was to the driver’s

pride and a bit of damage to his

vehicle. The tractor and digger

drivers were kept busy towing

some competitors through the

hazards.

Mr Croy said the marshals did

an amazing job keeping people

safe and ensuring the event ran

smoothly.

The event was also supported

by the Springfield Volunteer Fire

Brigade and the community.

Mr Croy said the food sites

also had a good time with Mr

Whippy and the coffee man kept

busy all day.

CultureFest celebrates diversity

ABOUT 3000 people turned

out last weekend to celebrate

Selwyn’s growing diversity in the

district.

CultureFest 2017 featured 23

performances from 20 different

ethnic and cultural backgrounds

along with 15 food vendors representing

a different country.

The event was held on Sunday

at the Lincoln Event Centre and

Lincoln Domain.

The district council’s senior

events and recreation adviser

Dave Tippett said the festival was

an outstanding success.

There were plenty of craft,

games and activities including

Iranian hand crafts, Mah Jong,

Henna Tattoos, face painting,

balloon art, highland games,

Japanese traditional games and

of course Te Taumutu kiwiana

products and craft.

Multiple agencies also

displayed information and support

services for residents and

newcomers and migrants like the

BRIGHT: NZ Folk Dancing Group taking the stage.

“Show Me Selwyn” bus tours.

Selwyn’s Mayor Sam

Broughton and Ngai Tahu ethnic

adviser Sally Pitama opened the

event.

The festival included performances

from the Canterbury

Nepalese Society Inc, the

Christchurch Chinese Zhonghua

Association and Rossinka

Multicultural Dancing Group.

Food vendors ranged from Dorothy’s

Pop Up Tearooms to Honey

Cakes and Kebab Habeebee.

VARIETY: Nigerian Food Stall

Limited Service

Volunteers

Course S01/18 at

Burnham Military Camp.

The course brings 100 17-

25 year-olds together from

across the country to develop

leadership, self confidence, and

work readiness skills. The course

is run with Ministry of Social

Development support and in

conjunction with NZ Police.

Officer Commanding Grant

Boore and his staff work with

each young person to challenge

old habits while building self

esteem. The transformation in

the young people was amazing

to witness over the duration of

the course.

The attendees worked really

hard in a military style environment

including pack marches,

strength and stamina conditioning,

marching, camping, survival,

river crossing, first aid and

nutrition. They also focussed on

elements that employers have

identified as desirable in job

applicants, including time

management, respect and

During the course the group

also spent a day of community

service at Chamberlains Ford

where they replanted natives and

tidied up the area following the

winter floods. Their work is very

much appreciated by myself and

Selwyn District Council staff.

This was not a boot camp,

it was not hard punishment

There is a growing body of

Kim Strange

Prebbleton mother brings creative

Kim Strange, of Prebbleton, is the driving force behind

Art Couture NZ’s wearable arts competition in Tai Tapu

next month. She spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Tell me about what made you

decide to set up a wearable arts

fashion show?

Last year I entered a wearable

arts competition. First in

Rolleston and then I took my

outfit over to Westport. I had

a friend that modelled for me

and we just had so much fun

together. My friend suggested

why don’t we do one in

Christchurch and it just went

from there. Four of us are the

main ones behind the show. It

has been a big learning curve

but we have enjoyed the process.

We did it as an opportunity

for your regular people to have

a go. We are a bit different –

we wanted the models to be

anybody. We didn’t want people

to think models can only be

young and tall and thin. We have

encouraged the entrants to use

their friends and family to model

for them.

What is the criteria for the

fashion?

It has to be a garment but it

can be made out of anything. We

have got categories. We have got

the sow’s ear, which is our signature

category – we created that

www.dcis.co.nz

because we provide the materials.

So people pay an extra $50

to enter and we gave them a bag

of materials. That included some

regular fabrics but also some

odd things. Our other one is a

recycled category, which is really

popular, and the other one is

hardware, which involves using

anything from a hardware shop.

We have got about 30 entrants

and Hillmorton High School has

entered.

You used to work at the

Home Interaction Programme

for Parents and Youngsters,

HIPPY, in Hornby?

I left HIPPY Hornby generally

because it was a full-time job.

Things happened at home

where I needed to be mum at

home more. I work at South

West Baptist Church. I do

administration for a couple

of pastors. I am running a

conference this week.

We have got seminars with

Canadian psychologist Gordon

Neufeld and teamed up with

West Spreydon School. We’ve

had topics on making sense

of pre-schoolers, resilience,

recovery and relationships,

Fire rages, homes at risk

world of wearable arts to Tai Tapu

Then I worked as a resource

teacher of learning and

behaviour where I moved

around schools. I did a wee bit

at McKenzie Residential School

when it was still running. My

last teaching position was at Our

Lady of the Assumption School

in Hoon Hay as a special needs

co-ordinator.

What are some of the most

important lessons you learned

from teaching?

Particularly when I worked

in special needs, it is that

understanding of kids and

behaviour. I have dyslexia that

runs through our family – it is

about advocating for our kids.

And making sure kids actually

have what they need to succeed.

It is helping kids to realise they

are not thick and not dumb.

They are often intelligent kids.

Most children with dyslexia are

creative in some respect.

You have a family of your

own?

I have three sons – 18, 16 and

11. They are pretty good teenagers,

I can’t complain. I have

been married to my husband

for 24 years. We met at a youth

group sports night a long time

ago. Paul works at Canterbury

University as a desktop support

consultant. He is also an officer

at boys’ brigade, which is run out

of South West Baptist Church.

It is a bit like scouts but it is

run through a church and they

have probably got about 50 kids

involved. He started boys’ brigade

when he was 10 and hasn’t

left. He is a trustee at Waipara

Adventure Centre.

Are you involved with the

Prebbleton Community Cottage?

I run a craft group from the

cottage. I set that up at the

beginning of this year. We

have a core group of ladies who

come every week and it is lovely

because there are a whole lot of

women who didn’t know each

other before and now they have

formed strong friendships.

Is that one of the reasons you

decided to set up the group in

the first place?

Absolutely. It is because I love

craft. I have inherited a love of

craft from my mother Dawn

Hansen. It is kind of another

thing to do with mental health,

connecting in the community

and getting to know each other.

We run workshops – I ran a

mosaic one recently and we have

had a photography workshop.

You spoke about your mother

being interested in the arts. Tell

me about her?

Absolutely, she has been in

craft groups for years, too. She

made my Irish dancing dress

when I did Irish dancing as a

kid. That is something I will always

treasure. I have got it hanging

up. She hand-embroidered

it and everything. I have got lots

of heirloom types of things from

Mum.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Halswell. We

only moved to Prebbleton just

before the February 22, 2011,

earthquake – four days before.

Our new house got a little damage,

we were very fortunate.

Prebbleton is lovely, it is such a

nice community.

Do you have any top places

you would like to travel to?

Oh yes, Paul and I went to Africa

before we had children. Now

we have the desire to go to Europe

and the United Kingdom,

which we have never been to.

One of our sons has a friend who

moved to France, so we would

love to go visit them.

What part of Africa did you

go to?

We started in Kenya and went

down the east coast and down to

South Africa. We did a camping

safari. We stayed in tents all the

way through. We did feel safe

and we did it through a proper

organised tourist group. You

don’t feel that unsafe, a part from

when you are in the big cities.

We had good guides. We still

have a lot of things in our house

from Africa.

You got to see a lot of wild

animals, what were some of

your most vivid memories?

Probably once when we saw

some lions which had just killed

a zebra. That was something that

will stay with us. We walked

quite close to the elephants and

rhinoceros. You had to be careful

what side you walked on them,

they ran remarkably fast too.

The tour guides had to let people

at the South Luangwa National

Park know we were there so

they wouldn’t shoot us. They

might think you are poachers.

If you wanted to go to the toilet

at night, you had to shine your

torch around in case there were

any lions. Each camp site had

guards there over night who had

bow and arrows or whatever to

keep you safe.

Prebbleton baker’s cakes in

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FROM A digger-themed

birthday cake splashed with

colour to a elegantly-designed

wedding cake topped with

intricate fondant flowers

– Felicity Goodfellow’s

home-baking is growing in

popularity.

With a love for challenging

her baking skills, the

Prebbleton resident has baked

an array of cakes which are in

hot demand with friends and

family.

Her baking has received a

surge of support on Instagram

and Facebook, with people

asking if she will start up her

own business.

“I just sell to friends and

family but I wouldn’t say I

have got a business as such,

and I don’t think I really want

to go down that route of having

a business. But never say

never, who knows,” she said.

Creating picturesque cakes

wasn’t always a desire of Mrs

Goodfellow’s.

But when her eldest daughter

Emmy celebrated her first

birthday in 2014, the former

Avonside Girls’ High School

teacher was determined to

make her daughter’s day as

special as possible.

BEST CAKES: Felicity Goodfellow bakes amazing cakes for family and friends.

“I had some time up my

sleeve because I was off on my

maternity leave from teaching

. . . it was that time in my

life where I could challenge

myself,” she said.

Soon after successfully

baking her daughter a “giant

cupcake”, Mrs Goodfellow

began hunting for more cakes

to bake in a bid to perfect her

new craft.

Four years down the line

and she has created a range of

cakes, from the three-layered

hungry caterpillar-themed

SELWYN TIMES

cake to an “ice cream smash”

cake and a layered macaroon

cake.

“I love helping people to

make their special day and

seeing the joy on their face

when I drop off their cake,”

she said.

her trademark style as a butter

“I generally work with

butter cream, which is my favourite

sort of style, but just

recently I have been working

Mrs Goodfellow also has a

passion for building fondant

Lincoln students shave

hair for cancer charity

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LINCOLN HIGH School

students have chopped off their

locks for a good cause.

More than $2000 was raised

to support CanTeen with 10

students shaving and cutting off

their hair recently.

A total of $2500 was raised

from the event organised by

students Nicole Spriggs and

Maisie Wood, who are the coheads

of the services’ council. It

was the first year a student had a

pony tail cut off as well as a head

shave. Assistant principal Kylie

Wissel said it worked well for the

girls as the hair will be used to

make wigs.

The event also featured the

annual Wrath of the Wax where

the school’s first XV rugby team

went against the first XI football

team to see which could raise the

most money for the cause.

The losing team was waxed

by the winning team. The event

was attended by a representative

from CanTeen.

Dedication balloons, organised

by Maisie and Nicole, were

made available to students to

purchase for $2 to dedicate to

someone struggling with cancer.

But due to the weather, the

students have held off releasing

the balloons into the sky until

next term.

We said:

Kirwee’s chief fire

officer Stuart Jones wants

urgent action taken on

an intersection at State

Highway 73 (West Coast

Rd) and Courtenay Rd in

the township. Readers

were asked if they thought

the intersection should be

addressed:

You said:

Carol Lowe – If folks

actually stopped at the stop signs

there wouldn’t be a problems.

There are far worse junctions

in the district. Folk just need to

follow the road rules and drive to

the conditions.

Bob Gillard – Well for a start

off people need to obey the STOP

sign at corner of Courtenay Rd

and State Highway 73. STOP

means STOP.

Jason Gemmill – Well I

don’t the use the road daily but

use it monthly and have done for

12 years. Ummm don’t see what

the problem is.

Margaret Gamblin – Good

to see the pubs still standing, my

mum used to work there when I

was little.

Sean Woods – I didn’t see a

DANGEROUS: Kirwee’s chief fire officer Stuart Jones is calling for the speed limit to be lowered

on State Highway 73 within the township.

problem with the road - parked

our bus at back of pub and had

lunch. Great place to stop.

Steve Evans – And exit

off Tramway Rd should be a

compulsory stop.

Maree Jewell – Yes it does

and people need to STOP at the

stop sign.

Ilze van Zyl – People don’t

slow down to the speed limit,

people don’t stop at the stop sign.

There are no safe pedestrian

crossings.

Brodie Grave – West Melton

one just as bad.

Kate Anderson – Its

dangerous. People sneak out of

side streets on to main road in

the middle flow of traffic and

then do 30km/h. I’ve seen buses

do this as well when leaving the

bus stop and they seem to expect

traffic to just stop for them.

Elizabeth Frizzell – There

needs to be a proper turning

lane, certainly for Tramway Rd.

Erin Todd – Defiantly needs

attention before we bury one of

our own.

Angelique Pierce – I

personally don’t think it’s that

bad - if everyone knows their

give way rules.

Sally Dobbs – What do

people not understand about the

word stop.

Fiona Mary Hopkinson

– Maybe if you’ve come from the

pub. Then its dodgy.

Sarah Gilbert – The tree

could always be removed as well

for better visibility.

Roz Scobie – Do I think it’s

a bit dicey? S*** yes.

Right turn from West Coast

Rd into Courtenay Rd is a

“playing with your life”

game.

I’ve breathed in many a time

watching a car in my rearview

mirror doing 70km/h.

Heather Rowlands – Many

years ago there used to be give

way sign from Courtenay Rd to

Main West Coast Rd. Been a stop

for many years but drivers

don’t.They just slid around the

corner.

Roz Scobie – It’s not the

speed...there’s no room for

passing vehicles when stopped to

turn off the West Coast Rd.

•From page 17

Courtney Hyde – I think

turning off State Highway 73

turning right into Hoskyns Rd

heading to Rolleston is worse.

Rach Anderson – I agree.

I’ve seen many vehicles continue

at 100km/h through Kirwee and

not stop at the Courtenay Rd

signs. As the area grows, the situation

will only increase.

Lou Tait – They also need to

get rid of some if those trees on

the monument side. They make

seeing on coming traffic when

you are pulling into Tramway Rd

quite hard.

Keryn Wilson – I am a super

careful driver but this is a spooky

one if it’s the one I’m thinking of

- is there a rail line on one side? I

once nearly got caught out concentrating

on too many signs at

once - rail warning, etc. Braked

last minute and it was fine but I

nearly missed the compulsory

stop! Gave myself a heart attack!

Paul Robinson – Main issue

here is also the lack of turning

area into Tramway Rd and traffic

heading west have no way of going

around. Needs widening and

speed reduction.

Tracey Jones – Definitely

dangerous I know first hand, was

lucky to walk away.

Louise Marie Stubbings

– Since we moved to the other

side of Courtenay Rd when I’ve

turned left from West Coast Rd

twice now with someone in front

turning right I have had to say a

prayer that the car behind me is

actually going to slow down and

not end up in my boot.

Sharon Morton – Omg yes

totally agree.

Melissa Evans – The danger

is not the road or the tree. It’s

the idiots who don’t follow road

rules and speed limits. What is

three seconds for stopping. A

number of Kirwee residents don’t

follow the road rules and also

speed and pass people through

Kirwee. Would love to video stop

sign and post it on here. Just set

your alarm five minutes earlier

and follow the rules.

Darren AJ King – No, most

people roll though the STOP

SIGNS , I see it every day, most

of them live in Kirwee, put some

photos of people not stopping in

the local paper on a full page, I

bet that would wake a few up.

Kerry Bray – While you

think about that just watch how

many do not stop at the Courtenay

Rd STOP sign - it’s more

driver education.

Steve Callender – Walking

home from garage just now at

7.35am, I saw four vehicles approach

the stop sign from both

sides of Courtenay Rd and only

ONE of them stopped. The other

three rolled right on through. It’s

not the road or speed limit that’s

the issue.

A reader responds to

Selwyn Times’ article

on Lincoln High School

allowing its students to

grow beards

Barry Donovan – Beards

are a natural characteristic of a

mature male human. Beardless

faces are found in nature on

juvenile males, and on females of

all ages. To force young maturing

males to shave off their developing

beards is to emasculate

them. Males must be allowed to

develop their mature male characteristics

as nature intended.

Otherwise they may not become

normal mature males.

A reader responds to

Selwyn Times’ article on

concern over ratepayers

paying for the new

community pavilion at

Weedons Reserve, which

they may not get any use

out of

Frank Dowle – I write regarding

this week’s article about

the proposed new Weedons

pavilion. It seems that one or

two agitators are delaying the

building of this positive community

facility. There was proper

consultation with rate payers

and I understand that there was

widespread support for the facility.

Yes sports clubs will benefit,

but the pavilion will also be

used by community groups for

meetings and activities including

those for children and the

elderly.

Unfortunately most of the

interesting and historic buildings

that once graced Weedons

have been demolished resulting

in a community with no village

centre. The new pavilion will

be an appropriate community

facility and will also be available

for private functions. There is

constant concern about children

being inactive and that our adult

population is increasingly obese.

Building facilities such as the

Weedons pavilion can only be

a good thing and is an investment

in our community and

our future. I implore the district

council to ignore the naysayers

and get the pavilion built without

further delay.

Canterbury’s public

transport senior

manager Stewart

Gibbon responds

to a letter from Sue

Walders on a bus

service from Leeston

to Christchurch

printed in Selwyn

Times’ September 26

edition

The Regional Public

Transport Plan is currently

being revised. A

draft will be released for

public consultation early

in 2018. This consultation

period, along with the

service reviews that will

follow, will be an opportunity

for residents and

bus users to comment on

the types of services and

connections available in

greater Christchurch, and

changes they may want to

be considered.

A reader responds

to Selwyn Times

article on the bus

service from Leeston

to Christchurch

CheCk out theSe

Tanya Maylam – I

read the article in the

September 19 issue of

Selwyn Times with interest.

There has been I

believe an increase in

the number of school

children going to school

in Christchurch and this

is not just children from

the townships but from

outlying farms. I myself

would love to have the

advantage of an early

morning service during

the week from Leeston

to the connecting bus

services at either Rolleston

or Lincoln. With an

increasing population of

teenagers in the local area

a weekend service, both

into and out of Christchurch,

would also be very

useful. A saving in time

and money in relation

to petrol and associated

car running costs would

be great. I was interested

to note that Leeston

residents were surveyed

in 2009 by Environment

Canterbury and Red Bus

Christchurch did a survey

in 2015, but I would like

to point out that a survey

of householders in the

outlying areas around

the townships may give

slightly different results as

not only patrons living in

the townships use the bus

services and you may find

that if one was available

from the local townships

that rural residents would

travel to the township to

catch the bus.

Fashion Quarterly

Dresses for spring

Dresses are ideal in the warmer months as they are cool and

comfortable and require very little thought when

dressing – one piece and you are done!

There are many and varied styles on offer with

something for everyone. This season there

are more of the longer midi length dresses

around which is good news for those

reluctant to show off their knees. There

are also maxi and mini so pretty much

anything goes.

There are also some with sleeves and

thankfully there are some cute little

chiffon boleros in various colours to

create a little sleeve for sleeveless

dresses.

The beautiful Vivid teal dress is a winner being below

the knee, with sleeves and the ruffles offer a clever

disguise making the dress very flattering for all

shapes. This dress is also available in royal blue in

size 16 only. Teal sizes 10 -16 $129.

Libertine is a label well known for stunning

print fabrics. The Libertine rainforest dress is

in a beautiful floral fabric with hues of jade,

white and pink. This dress featured in the latest

simply You fashion magazine and is available

in store in sizes 8 -14 for $179.90.

Another pretty dress by Libertine is the

botanic garden dress with a quirky print featuring

potted plants. it is a lovely easy style which can be

dressed up or worn casually. Available for $169.90

in sizes 8-14.

A third offering from Libertine is the gorgeous wild

poppy dress, another which featured

in the simply You magazine which showcases the best of NZ fashion.

This cute indigo spot dress has a clever tuck design on the bodice

making it very flattering especially around the middle area. This dress

is $159.90 and is available in sizes 8 -16

Elm is a label that understands Kiwi women.

Their label is casual and not too clingy, ideal

for everyday wear. We have pictured the

Elm silhouette shift dress in vibrant green

print. This dress a straight through design so is

comfortable and easy to wear and is a good

length for most and is priced at $149.95.

Another light and pretty casual dress is this multi

coloured aztec print dress by Random fashions.

This dress is an easy shift shape and has a little

capped sleeve and is priced very reasonably at

$115. it looks great with a pair of white sneakers

or flats but pop on a pair of heels and it could

take you to a more formal event.

This is a small selection from the hundreds

of dresses we have on offer at Viva La

moda. see you soon to come and

have a try on!

Libraries to close for staff development

On Friday 13 October, Selwyn District Libraries and Service Centres will not open until 1pm to allow

library staff to attend a professional development session.

Selwyn Libraries and Service Centres Manager Vicki Carlyon says the libraries hold two staff training and

meeting sessions a year focusing on improving the service they provide for Selwyn residents.

“The agenda we have planned for the day will include programming for young people and children, delivery

of council services, working with the Community Services team and use of technology in libraries.”

While the closure occurs, people can still visit the library website (www.selwynlibraries.co.nz) to access

a range of online services including the library catalogue, eBooks, eAudio, eMagazines, databases and

other online services. Items can also be returned through the after-hours returns boxes outside libraries.

The Council’s Rolleston headquarters will still be open providing council services on 13 October. People

can also phone the council on 347 2800 or 318 8338 for assistance.

Levi Park – Have your say!

The Council is continuously looking to new concepts or initiatives to

ensure our playgrounds remain appealing and are engaging to the

youth of Selwyn.

As part of our drive to provide quality local playgrounds, the Council

gave permission for the Playground Centre to temporarily install

interactive technology at a local playground in Rolleston’s Levi Park

to see how the community adopts the new technology. The 90-

day trial will test the uptake of the technology and if it proves to be

popular, it could be added to other parks in the district, if there is

support from residents to do so.

The trial has no cost to the Council and no commitment has been

made to keep the technology beyond the trial.

How does the technology work?

The technology is developed by Biba Technologies, based in Canada.

Six augmented reality markers are now attached to the existing

playground equipment, which can be easily scanned by parents and

children to activate mini-games and unlock new play content aimed

at three to nine-year olds. Parents can download the games free

from the App Store or on Google Play, by searching for ‘playbiba’.

The park can still be used in a traditional way.

The technology has been developed to address the concerning

trend of decreased physical activity levels in children, and has been

successfully trialled in America and Canada. It gives parents another

option for encouraging active outdoor play, and supports them to

provide additional play experiences for children.

Let us know what you think

We’re running an online survey to gauge people’s interest in the

technology. Our consultation period begins Tuesday 3 October and

closes on 24 October. Information about the trial can be found on

our Facebook page and website. We will take on board all feedback

raised during the trial before making any decisions on whether the

technology is rolled out to any playgrounds in the district.

To learn more about Smart Playgrounds go to

playgroundcentre.com/smart-playgrounds/.

CultureFest attracts thousands

CultureFest 2017 was an outstanding success with around 3,000

people enjoying a range of performances from 20 different ethnic

and cultural backgrounds. The crowd enjoyed food from a range of

vendors each representing a different country. There were plenty of

craft, games and activities including Iranian hand crafts, Mah Jong,

Henna Tattoos, face painting, balloon art, highland games, Japanese

traditional games and Te Taumutu kiwiana products and craft.

The turnout from Selwyn residents, performers, ethnic and cultural

groups and food vendors showcased Selwyn’s growing diversity

and welcoming nature for newcomers and migrants.

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads this week

Stabilised seal repairs are occurring on Lincoln Tai Tapu Road. Shoulder works

will be occurring at Days Road, Shands Road and Goulds Road. Traffic controls will

be operating.

Digout repairs will be carried out on Blakes Road, Springs Road, Birchs Road and

Ellesmere Junction Road. Please stop on request at these sites.

Upgrade work including kerb and channel and seal widening is being done by the developer on the east

side of Springston Rolleston Road south of Lowes Road.

Footpath repairs will be occurring on Heathridge Place in Lincoln, the footpath will be closed during

these works.

Christchurch Southern Motorway Stage 2

A one-way system is now in place between the intersection of Waterholes Road and Hamptons Road

and 851 Waterholes Road. There will be no access to Main South Road from Waterholes Road. Traffic

will be detoured via surrounding local roads. This is to allow for the remaining seal to be undertaken on

the new temporary road at the intersection of Waterholes Road and Hamptons Road.

This work will take up to three weeks and is weather dependent. As soon as the seal is completed the

traffic management will be removed.

Country takes win against national team

• By Gordon Findlater

THE CANTERBURY Country

under-18 team got the rare

opportunity to play one of the

lesser known national schools

rugby sides at the weekend.

Country were too strong for

the New Zealand Barbarians

Area Schools, defeating them

47-22 at Southbrook Park in

Rangiora.

The Area Schools are chosen

from the top players in some of

the smaller, often rural areas of

New Zealand, who do not get the

chance to play in the top, higher

profile first XV competitions.

“That’s the first time we’ve

ever played them, and we didn’t

really know what to expect,” said

Country coach Glen Dunseath.

Country opted to give some

of their bench players a start in

the match but found themselves

trailing 5-17 early on.

By half-time Country had

gained the initiative and led 22-

17, before putting in a dominant

second half performance to

stretch the score to 47-22.

Country now turn their

focus to the South Island U-18

three day tournament, which is

beginning at Belfast Rugby Club

on Friday. “It’s a pretty short

SPORTS

turnaround for us going into

the tournament so having the

game on Saturday was great for

us rather than having a weekend

off,” said Dunseath.

Country suffered tight defeats

to Canterbury Metro and Tasman

in their northern section

pool games last month. They will

now face the top qualifier from

the southern pool in their opening

game on Friday.

The winner will go into the top

four playoffs, with the loser going

into the plate section.

Selwyn teams aim to knock off Sefton

Extended one

day season

gets under way

• By Gordon Findlater

THE CRICKET season starts on

Saturday with the opening round

of the Canterbury Country

premier one-day competition.

Selwyn’s four premier clubs –

Leeston-Southbridge, Weedons,

Lincoln and South Malvern

– will be looking to end the

dominance that Sefton showed

last season.

The North Canterbury club

won all three formats in last

season’s Canterbury Country

cricket competition. They

defeated Leeston-Southbridge in

both the one-day and twenty20

finals and Weedons in the twoday

final.

“Sefton will definitely be the

team to beat again but there’s a

number of teams that have what

it takes to win this competition,”

said Canterbury Country Cricket

Association cricket manager

Toby Doyle.

There has been a change in

format this summer.

The end of season two-day

competition has been scrapped

in favour of an extra one-day

round-robin.

“The decision came down to

the clubs, with a vote in favour of

ALL-ROUNDER: Lincoln’s Jeremy Benton (bowling) made his

way into the Canterbury side last summer after a string of

impressive displays.

PHOTOS: KAREN CASEY

moving to an extra round of the

45 over one-day competition,”

said Doyle, who also plays for

Leeston-Southbridge.

“It came down to a number of

factors. The majority of players

want to know they’re going to get

a bat and a bowl every Saturday.

Sometimes in the two-day

competition you can end up

spending a day just out fielding,”

said Doyle.

The one-day competition will

now see eight teams play each

other twice before splitting into

a top and bottom four before the

finals in March.

A twenty20 competition

will also be played over three

weekends in January.

Last season’s one-day competition top performers:

•Run scorers: Shannon Stewart (Southbrook), 451 runs,

150.33 average, 70.48 strike rate; Toby Doyle (Leeston-

Southbridge), 285 runs, 40.71 average, 63.47 strike rate;

Jeremy Benton (Lincoln), 234 runs, 58.50 average, 79.87

201 runs, 28.71 average, 83.75 strike rate; Simon Edwards

(South Malvern), 194 runs, 48.50 average, 115.52 strike rate.

•Wicket takers: Fergus Fairburn (Southbrook), 17 wickets,

9.76 average, 3.69 economy; Ian King (Sefton), 13 wickets, 9

Lincoln reaches high to

take national champs

• By Gordon Findlater

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY

women’s basketball solidified

their national dominance by

winning the national tertiary

basketball championship at

Cowles Stadium last week.

Their 60-46 win over Victoria

University of Wellington in

the final handed the Lincoln

women their second title of the

year after they took out the 3x3

tertiary title in April.

The team were dominant

throughout last week’s tournament.

They went through pool

play undefeated with wins over

University of Waikato (71-50),

University of Otago (67-50),

and Victoria University (55-

41). They then accounted for

Auckland University of Technology

56-45 in the semi-final.

The team stepped up in the

final with standout performances

from Connie Poletti

(17points, 10 rebounds), Sophie

Schrader (14 points, 3 assists),

and Bianca Malifa (11 points, 4

assists).

The Lincoln men came

agonisingly close to also doing

a clean sweep in the tertiary

basketball. They won the 3x3

title in April but were pipped

by Canterbury University in

MVP: Connie Poletti led Lincoln in the final with 17 points and

13 rebounds and was named as the tournament’s top player.

James Cawthorn (below) made the men’s tournament team. ​

the 5x5 final 90-101.

The men had two wins and a

loss in pool play. They then defeated

University of Auckland

84-67 in the semi-final.

Following the tournament

Poletti and Lucy Brown were

both named in the women’s

tournament team, with Poletti

also being named as the MVP.

James Cawthorn was named

in the men’s tournament team.

Bathurst dream comes

true for Prebbleton driver

A DREAM will become reality

for Prebbleton’s Jack Milligan

when he races a Toyota 86 sports

coupe at the Bathurst 1000 this

week.

Milligan, 21, has had a

challenging few years battling

his way through karts and RX7

racing to eventually secure the

second CareVets scholarship

car in last season’s Toyota 86

Championship.

A win and a brace of podium

finishes marked him as a standout

talent and he finished his first

season in the category as 2016-

2017 rookie of the year.

Fellow New Zealand drivers

Scott McLaughlin, Fabian

Coulthard and reigning

Supercar champion Shane van

Gisbergen will likely be hogging

the limelight for Kiwi fans, but

Milligan hopes to turn a few

heads himself with his first trip to

the mountain.

He will be the only New

Zealander in the 36-plus field at

the Toyota 86s, which is one of

the main support classes for the

V8 Supercars. The 86 racing at

Bathurst begins on Thursday and

runs until Sunday.

Milligan secured the trip to

Bathurst to compete in this round

of the Aussie 86 series as part

of the New Zealand Toyota 86

championship prize pool.

Milligan will have just two

20min practice sessions and one

BATHURST-BOUND: Jack

Milligan will drive in the

Toyota 86 support races at

Bathurst this week.

20min qualifying session, which

will set the starting grid for the

first of three six-lap races over the

weekend.

The Australian cars are slightly

different to the New Zealand

specifications.

“It’s a huge challenge, but I am

used to those,” said Milligan.

“I’ll also have to learn the

circuit, but it’s a place we all

dream about racing and I still

pinch myself that I have this

opportunity.

“I’m still a long way from the

top, but racing at Bathurst gives

me a clear view of the summit

and where I want to be. It’s a

golden opportunity and one I

intend to take with both hands.”

Local scouts seeking support

for ‘monster garage sale’

Globally, scouting has a membership of

over 31 million scouts and adult leaders.

New Zealand has over 20,000, with 65 of

those in West Melton.

Group leader of the West Melton Scout

Group Kyle Stewart says nine leaders

volunteer their time to ensure they can

provide “an exciting and active programme

to instill a sense of pride and self worth into

each of the youths, and to help set them up

to handle life”.

“Funding comes directly from the

members of the group and the general

community,” Kyle says. “Every two years

we hold our monster garage sale with

goods donated by you, the locals, to help us

provide funds to keep the group running.

We are very privileged to have such

generous neighbors in our community,

many of whom have been, or are, involved

in scouting.

“Now in our 53rd year as a group, we

have had many fantastic leaders, hundreds

of youth, we have been involved in local

and wider community projects – most

recently planting native trees to help D.O.C.

rehabilitate the Waimakariri river bed – we

have attended Jamborees in New Zealand

and even some international ones,” he says.

“At our 50th anniversary celebration

we showcased our talents to the wider

community with a campfire and

involvement in the West Melton 150th.”

The philosophy for scouts is ‘Youth

at the centre’, and in New Zealand the

organisation is working on the ‘Better

Prepared’ principle. Kyle says the youth

are more involved than ever in the makeup

of the programme, and to an extent are

beginning to run it themselves.

“As we move into the digital age we are

coming across new challenges for our

youth, but are always able to reference our

core values ‘Have Respect, Do what is right

and be positive’,” he says.

“With our garage sale coming up, we are

still looking to the community for support

with donations of good-quality items that

we can sell. We are very much a volunteer

based organisation and appreciate all and

any help we can get.”

Backyard Critters

Bugs dine on cabbage tree

Mike Bowie is

an ecologist

who specialises

in entomology

(insects

and other

invertebrates).

Each week he introduces

a new species found in his

backyard at Lincoln. His

column aims to raise public

awareness of biodiversity,

the variety of living things

around us

ONE OF the 10 native insect

species dependent on the

cabbage tree as a host is the

mealybug balanococcus

cordylinidis.

The 5mm long mealybug is

a waxy grey critter that lives in

between the leaf base and the

stem of the cabbage tree where

leaf litter accumulates to create a

moist micro-environment.

Mealybugs are sucking insects

like aphids and can cause death

to plants or trees when in high

densities or when they transmit

viruses.

Tree symptoms include leaf

discolouration, wilting and

sometimes death.

Parting of the leaves at the

base will often reveal the culprits,

but fortunately there is a

saviour in the form of a syrphid,

Mealybug is a waxy grey

a native predatory larva of the

This predator can gobble up

mealybugs and allow the cabbage

tree to recover.

the organising committee is

to make sure the show will be

Show president Doug Michael

said things have changed in

Ellesmere over the last 10 or so

years.

He said it is time to get the

community spirit back into show

day and celebrate diversity not

just in agriculture, but also in

Ellesmere’s demographic, culture

and sports.

Organised by Sport Canterbury,

students are challenged to

take part in a number of teambased

activities and challenges

modelled on the New Zealand

television series Top Town.

Students will compete for cash

for their school on an activity

circuit and in obstacle stations

in the show’s main ring. Sport

Fruit & veggie growers

join social media

Global interest in the story behind healthy,

fresh food has inspired Horticulture New

Zealand to start an Instagram page, where

people can better get to know the fruit

and vegetable growers of New Zealand,

Horticulture New Zealand, chief executive

Mike Chapman says.

Since going live last Tuesday, Growers of

New Zealand (@growersofnz) has already

sparked interest in New Zealand and

around the world.

Each week a grower will be profiled at

work, and the seasonal crop they have

been working with will be highlighted in a

recipe.

“Social media is a great way to reach a

wide and engaged audience who want to

find out more about their food and the

people who grow it,” Mr Chapman says.

“Instagram is really the social media of

foodies, travellers and influencers, and of

course, it is very visual which is perfect for

healthy food.

“But it is no longer just the food people

are interested in. Increasingly people want

to know their food has been produced in a

sustainable way, with well-protected labour.

“New Zealand fruit and vegetable growers

have a great story to tell. Many run intergenerational

family businesses where three

or four generations of the same family have

been caring for the land. They understand

environmental sustainability from years

of record keeping and experience. As the

generations change, more science and

technology is applied and in horticulture

we have businesses at the cutting edge of

healthy food production,” Mr Chapman

says.

“Growers of New Zealand can also tell

our international audience more about New

Zealand fresh fruit and vegetables, given

that we export to 124 markets and there

is interest in organic growing worldwide,

which is another New Zealand strength.

“Recipes are always popular on social

media, as people look to healthier eating

and want daily inspiration and advice.

We will be promoting what is in season

at the time and therefore readily available

and affordable, and also will be profiling

the lesser- known fruits and vegetables

to encourage people to broaden their

horizons.

New R&D centre to develop

food technology expertise

Mill processing company Synlait is

establishing a research and development

centre in Palmerston North to continue

building expertise and capability in food

technology.

“Our goal is to become more profitable

and diversified. Investing in our own

research and development centre is an

opportunity to explore new and unique

ways to make the most from milk,”

managing director and CEO John Penno

says.

“We will be developing intellectual

property across our value chain, which

aims to maximise value at every step,

beginning behind the farm gate all the way

through to providing market access for our

customers.”

Partnering with Massey University and

FoodPILOT, one of the New Zealand

Food Innovation Network’s four hubs, the

new Palmerston North centre will be colocated

at the forefront of innovative food

technology research and commercialisation

in New Zealand.

Synlait’s research and development

centre will concentrate on new product

development, process technology and

packaging.

“We are serious about growing our

research and category development

capability and plan to double our

investment over the next two years,” Mr

Penno says.

“Our commitment this financial year will

be around $7 million, and our investment

in Palmerston North is a major milestone

on this journey.

“This is the first step for us as we progress

towards new products, categories and

markets in the future. We will need our

capability in this area to continue evolving

so we stay ahead of the game.”

General manager of innovation and

technical services Roger Schwarzenbach

says Synlait will have access to some of the

best scientific, technical and commercial

minds and equipment in this field.

“It’s the perfect environment for our new

team to explore options for diversifying

our business, both at a product and process

level.”

Initially the centre will employ food

technologists and engineers.

Working closely with other teams at

Synlait Dunsandel, they will also have

access to some of the most sophisticated

equipment and processing technology in

the world.

“As one of New Zealand’s fastestgrowing

companies, our people have the

opportunity to directly impact decisions we

make. We will recruit a team in Palmerston

North who aren’t afraid of a challenge

and really want to make their mark,” Mr

Schwarzenbach says.

“This centre will have a real impact

on Synlait’s future. The team will help

us launch new high-returning dairy

categories, bring new product options to

market and contribute to ever-improving

product quality.”

BLOOMS: If pink

isn’t your colour try

a mixed bundle of

petunia seedlings.

It’s hard to go past pretty petunias

If you’ve got an area in your garden

where you want to create a mass of

colour, you can’t go past petunias.

They are prolific bloomers that, if

looked after, will continue to flower all

summer.

You can choose from plain purple,

red, pink or white. How about purple

with dashes of white like on the

primetime violet star?

Or the duo red and white variety

which, like the name suggests, produces

a beautiful mixture of red and white

flower?

Not sure what colour to select? Then

try a mixed bundle.

Don’t have a big garden to fill with

bedding flowers? Don’t worry about

that either. All petunias really need to

flourish is a sunny, free-draining spot.

They grow equally as well in pots and

hanging baskets making them perfect

for just about any garden.

Once you’ve selected your seedlings

and sunny spot to plant, simply dig

small holes, around 3cm deep and

25cm apart, and plant.

Be sure to watch out for slugs or trying

using our beer bait. It also pays to

keep an eye out for aphids. If you spot

these pesky pests, a general insecticide

or spray of organic alternative, neem

oil will sort that problem.

And make sure to keep them watered.

If you’re not sure how thirsty

they are, stick your finger in the soil

2cm deep. If the soil is dry, they will

need a drink.

Then sit back and wait just four to

six weeks for your beautiful petunias

to bloom. Remember to pick off dead

heads to encourage re-flowering.

Planting out

veggie seedlings

If you have been growing seedlings inside, it will

soon be time to plant them out into the garden

or raised bed that you have prepared. Firstly we

need to do something called “hardening off”. This

process is used to slowly introduce your seedlings

that have been growing inside, to the elements.

This process helps to give them a better chance

at survival, and adapting to the big changes from

being inside.

At this time of the season, about 3 to 5 days

outside in a sunny spot is enough to harden-off

plants before transplanting. The sunlight will

What is transplant shock?

Transplant shock is a term that is used to

describe the stresses that can occur on plants

that are being transplanted. It includes failure

of the plant to root well in the ground, meaning

that its chances of survival are reduced. Here are

some tips to help reduce stress:

• Disturb the roots as little as possible

• Bring as much of the root system as possible

• Water thoroughly after

• Always make sure the root ball stays moist

strengthen the stems

and cell walls, which

will reduce transplant

shock. It is best to then

plant the seedlings

into the garden or

planter in the early

evening.

Make sure you give them a water

once you have finished planting. This process will

be great for the seedlings such as corn, zucchini,

pumpkin, cucumber, tomatoes, and lettuces.

ANNUAL SALE of

PLANTS

Dahlias for summer colour

• By Paul Hoek

DAHLIAS ARE one of the best value garden

plants for summer colour.

Planted in spring, they will flower from

December right through summer to late

autumn.

Native to Mexico and first introduced

into Europe in the 1600s, dahlias have been

so extensively cross-bred over hundreds of

years that the dahlia family now includes a

large range of flower types, plant sizes and

every colour imaginable.

Dahlias are sorted into main groups according

to their flower shape.

The most common types are the cactus

dahlia, with a spiky appearance and

decorative dahlias which include a range

of forms from tight ball-shaped flowers

through to more open forms called water

lily dahlias. As well as these two, other

common types include dwarf forms ideal

for borders or potting, and single flowered

forms.

Dahlias prefer a full sun location, but

will tolerate some shade. Drainage is very

important as the tubers do not like being

water logged for any length of time. In

high rainfall or wet areas they can easily be

grown by using slightly raised beds to help

with drainage.

Plant the tubers with the crown just

below the surface of the soil and water in.

Little attention is required during growing

other than to make sure they’re watered if

conditions get quite dry.

Removing old flower heads will keep the

BOLD: Dahlias come in a large range of types, sizes and colours.

plants looking tidy and helps the plant to

keep flowering to the end of the season.

The flowers can be picked for indoor use

but will not continue to open off the plant,

so should be picked only when they are

open already.

Dahlia plants go through different stages

of growth depending on the day length.

During long day length in mid-summer

the plants produce a lot of top growth and

flowers. Decreasing day length during

autumn triggers the plants into tuber production

below the ground.

The tubers prepare the plant for winter

dormancy and store energy ready for

growing again next spring.

IT’S TIME FOR THE SPRING FLING

For the seventh year running, people will again flock to the

Ellesmere Spring Fling.

The Ellesmere Spring Fling is the crème de crème of fetes.

Held in the most beautiful garden – David Hobbs’ award

winning Broadfield Garden – this is no ordinary affair.

“The Spring Fling is a wonderful day out,” says Janice

Burnett who is Chairperson of Community Care Lincoln.

Whether you are a keen gardener wanting inspiration,

looking for quality items to enjoy or tuck away for Christmas

or simply keen on having a good time, this event promises

plenty.

Wander through the diverse garden and around the superb

gathering of stalls selling everything from fresh produce,

food, drink (wine and beer will be available), artisan arts

and crafts to plants. Find a place to relax under the shade

of a tree or bask in the sun listening to live music while

partaking of a snack, lunch, Devonshire tea or beverage.

David Hobbs, whose garden fills ten acres and is of such

a high standard that it has both national and international

recognition, will once again offer garden tours. You will

have the chance to learn about the plants growing at

Broadfield Gardens while garnering some green thumb

tips from the expert himself.

With the focus this year on gardening, you will be inspired

by the marvellous gardens David has created and have the

chance to learn more about gardening with demonstrations

presented by horticultural experts.

“We’re so happy to once again have Intelligro as our

principal sponsor,” says Vanessa Thompson, organiser of

the Spring Fling.

She advises that the Intelligro team will be there to help

with any queries and give people advice about what they

should be doing in their gardens at this time of year.

As sole fundraiser Lincoln Community Care Association Inc.

(LCC), the Ellesmere Spring Fling is fully a volunteer affair.

Special thanks can also be given to the amazing support

of Lincoln New World, Paper Plus at Hornby and Merivale,

Academy Signs, Susan and Tony Faulks, the Selwyn District

Council and Pub Charity Limited.

“We’re really grateful for the on-going community assistance

we receive and the work done by Lincoln Rotary members

who help in so many ways on the day,” adds Janice.

As usual, Future Leaders from Lincoln University, local

exercise and walking groups and Community Care’s

own staff, board members and volunteers will all be there

helping make it a fun day for all.

The Ellesmere Spring Fling is a country garden experience

not to be topped. It will be held this year, on Sunday, 8th

October from 11am until 4pm at Broadfield Garden,

250 Selwyn Road, Broadfield. Tickets can be purchased

prior to the event for $15 from New World Lincoln, Paper

Plus Hornby and at Community Care. Gate sales will be

available on the day at $20 for an adult with children free.

Building on a budget

Building your own home is one of the biggest investments of a lifetime and with

a few clever tips we show you how to make the most of what you can afford.

Get smart with your money to achieve

your dream home without compromising

on what’s really important.

Consider buying a large plot of land with

friends or family which you can split into

smaller lots. Many great

locations tend to cover

more ground, so get the

stunning harbour view

you dream of by sharing

the cost with someone you

don’t mind having as a

neighbour.

Opting for lowmaintenance

building

materials, like vinyl siding

and metal roofing saves in

the long run. Although

they may be more

expensive to install you

will save money on future

repairs, replacement or

repainting.

Using salvaged and recycled

materials and componentry

from the abundance of

demolition sites around the

city not only adds valuable

character to new builds, but

can save money, too.

For the safety and security

of your home, don’t skimp on structural

elements, doors and windows. Buy the

very best you can afford and, together

with your architect or builder, determine

other areas you could save on to allow for

a few luxuries.

It’s important not to waste valuable cash

on overbuilding. Look carefully at the

existing properties in the area and be

Deciding exactly

what you want

and then sticking with

it will ensure you stay

on budget, on time,

and all with

minimal stress.

aware that building a home that is bigger

and better than those of your neighbours

will not necessarily equate to a fair price

if and when it’s time to sell. instead, the

value of your build will be determined

by the lower-priced homes

around it.

The experience of a wellqualified

contractor is an

invaluable asset in any

building project. Not only

will you have recourse

should anything go wrong,

but their experience in

the industry means they

will have established

relationships with suppliers

and subcontractors, whom

they trust to deliver the best

workmanship possible.

Keep a close eye on

construction allowances as

your home is being built

to ensure you are getting

what you asked for and

what you paid for. if you

had initially agreed on

using a specific brand, for

example, then don’t settle

for less, unless you discuss

a cost adjustment with your

builder or contractor.

Many a building project has snowballed

out of control in the financial department

due to changes being made to the design

and materials once building is already

underway. Deciding exactly what you

want and then sticking with it will ensure

you stay on budget, within your expected

time frame, and all with minimal stress.

country’s top building companies involves

judging nominated new homes, show

homes from around the country.

Over 370 new builds and renovations

across New Zealand were assessed by a

achievement.”

This sentiment is shared by others in the Stonewood

organisation.

“To win these awards is particularly satisfying and

demonstrates our brand’s dedication to quality,” adds

Brent Stewart, Managing Director of Stonewood

Homes Nelson.

John Chow believes the Stonewood Homes’ success

at the awards, signifies the organisation’s continued

focus on building innovative quality homes.

Stonewood Homes have over 100 contemporary

and modern designs in their line-up, characterising

the New Zealand way of life where a sense space and

openness along with outdoor living are important

any lifestyle, budget or aesthetics,” adds John who says

everyone in the Stonewood team, work tirelessly to

deliver outstanding homes.

Navigating the

multi-offer process

Whether you’re buying or selling a

property it’s a good idea to learn as much

as you can about the different methods

used in New Zealand. One that confuses

a lot of people is the multi-offer process,

where all interested prospective buyers are

encouraged to submit their best offer and

the seller can choose whichever one looks

most attractive.

“This process is designed to give all

potential buyers an equal shot,” explains

Real Estate Agents Authority chief

executive Kevin Lampen-Smith.

“The process is not like an auction where

an agreement is automatically formed

with a successful bidder. The seller is not

obliged or required to accept any particular

offer in this situation; they may accept one

offer, reject all offers, or choose to negotiate

further with one particular party.”

The actual form that a multi-offer process

takes can differ from agency to agency – it’s

not defined in law or set by the Real Estate

Agents Authority (REAA).

A multi-offer process can only be

described as such when there is more than

one offer in writing – a real estate agent

is not allowed to pretend that there are

genuine competing offers if they do not

exist.

“Agents are expected to clearly explain the

process and any relevant paperwork to all

Selwyn Times

EVERY TUESDAY inside Selwyn Times

prospective buyers and sellers,” Lampen-

Smith says.

“If you’re unsure about anything, ask

the agent to clarify it or seek advice from

your lawyer. It’s far better to do this at

the beginning than face confusion and

disappointment further down the track.”

All the offers are presented fairly in this

process and a real estate agent must not

favour one over another.

All prospective buyers should know that

they need to put their very best offer on the

table, Lampen-Smith says.

Some real estate agencies will hold on to

the first offer they receive while they check

for others, effectively creating a multi-offer

process.

“This may feel unfair if you think that

your offer should ‘win’ because it was

in first, but it’s worth remembering that

the agent is working for the seller. Their

primary responsibility is to get the seller

the best outcome, considering both price

and any conditions from buyers such as

settlement date or being subject to finance.”

If as a prospective buyer you are told

that a sale is a multi-offer process but the

situation later changes to a stand-alone

offer, you must be told about this and get

a chance to review your offer and submit a

new one.

How to give a multi-offer

process your best shot

1. Do as much homework on a property as

you can before making the offer so you

minimise any risks. This is important for

many reasons; not least because it may

help you eliminate some conditions and

help you determine what your ‘best’ offer

will be.

2. When thinking about the offer, it’s worth

considering how you would feel if you

found out that a higher offer had been

accepted ahead of yours. If you think you

would be prepared to pay more, then it’s

better to make that decision at the start

than when it’s too late.

3. There is often confusion around

timeframes in a multi-offer process,

especially if a potential buyer thinks they

are the only people who are interested.

Talk to the real estate agent marketing

the property to make sure you are clear

about any deadlines and about the sale

process as a whole.

4. Remember that the highest offer is not

always the winner. If you were a seller,

would you prefer a higher offer or one

with fewer conditions? It’s impossible to

guess what kind of offer will suit a seller’s

particular circumstances, but it’s a good

idea to eliminate as many barriers to a

swift and easy sale as you can.

5. Want to get in early? Include an expiry

time on your offer. This kind of sunset

clause means the agent must present it to

the seller so they can consider it before it

expires.

selling property, check out www.reaa.
