Brettkelly after amateur title

Retail

• By Gordon Findlater

HORORATA GOLF Club’s

Dominic Brettkelly will go

into next week’s New Zealand

amateur championship at

Russley with a genuine chance

of stamping his mark in NZ golf

history.

Brettkelly, 17, would be

amongst the genuine contenders

no matter where the tournament

is being played. However, being

at Russley Golf Club the expectations

are high.

The left-handed golfer practises

at the Russley course after

finishing school at Christchurch

Boys’ High School most days.

He also won the senior club

championship at Russley last

year.

“It’s a massive advantage and

I feel pretty confident. I’ve got

a decent chance to go deep at

the tournament but you can’t

really think about that,” said

Brettkelly.

“If I win something like the

New Zealand Amateur Championship

it opens a lot of doors.

My world amateur golf ranking

would go up and I’d get exposed

to bigger tournaments.”

The future is looking bright

for Brettkelly, who was introduced

to golf as a four-year-old

when his grandfather made him

a left-handed golf club from an

old cattle prod with the head of

a five iron attached.

Brettkelly is all but confirmed

to attend Western Kentucky

University in Bowling Green

next year. He will head stateside

in August, giving him plenty

of time to concentrate on golf

after he finishes his final year at

CBHS next month.

“I’ll be able to play a lot of

tournaments around New Zealand

for seven or eight months

which will be awesome. I’ll have

more time to prepare for tournaments

instead of rushing away

from school,” said Brettkelly.

Western Kentucky is a division

one college and compete in

Conference USA.

The most prominent golfing

name to come out of the college

is Kenny Perry, who had a successful

career during the 1990s

and 2000s resulting in 14 PGA

Tour victories.

Next week’s amateur championship

consist of 32 holes of

stroke play over the first two

days to decide the top 32 qualifying

players.

The final 32 golfers then

compete against each other in

an elimination match

play format to decide a

champion.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RETAIL SPENDING in Selwyn

is on the increase – driven by a

growing population, the farming

industry, the post-earthquake

rebuild and tourism.

Latest data shows electronic

card retail spending in the district

has increased by seven per cent in

the year to June.

Rolleston Square property

manager Rebecca Gregg said it is

seeing a positive turnover growth

from comparing its year on year

sales.

“(Selwyn) is the second fastest

growing region in New Zealand

and there are a lot more people

living in the area and there are

more subdivisions being built,”

she said.

Selwyn’s population of close to

59,000 is growing quickly. In 2013

it was 44,595 and by 2025 it will

reach almost 70,000.

The figures compare with an 1.5

per cent increase for Canterbury

and 3.6 per cent increase for the

whole country.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

MONEY MAKES the world go

round and the statistics show it’s

going okay in Selwyn (see page 1).

There has been a 7 per cent

increase in retail spending, driven

by the dairy industry, a growing

population and tourism.

When people spend it puts

money in the tills of businesses,

which expand, which in turn

usually means hiring more people

(hopefully). That means money in

more pockets which in turn gets

spent again.

Pretty simple economics, really.

More good news on the sporting

front this week.

Promising Hororata golfer

Dominic Brettkelly goes into next

week’s New Zealand amateur

championship at Russley with a

genuine chance (see page 1).

And Prebbleton motor racing

drivers Jaden Ransley and Jack

Milligan go head-to-head when

the Toyota 86 Championship starts

next week (page 20).

retail spending on the rise

•From page 1

The data from economic

consultancy group Infometrics’

shows dairy prices slowly recovering

from a rough patch of low

payouts is having a positive cash

flow affect into Selwyn’s retail

sector.

The total dairy payout was

$420 million, up more than $150

million from the previous year,

but still down on the record $533

million pay out for the 2013/14

season.

opportunities.

“I think it all came down to

the earthquakes to be honest,”

he said.

Member and business coach

Warren Sargent said generally

there is an increase in sales and

retail but it is difficult to put a

measurement against it.

“But the confidence when you

speak to businessmen is higher,”

he said.

Hororata Cafe and Wine Bar

owner Jarnia Kupe puts the

growth of her business down to

the developments of the Central

Plains Water scheme’s canal in

Hororata.

She said more workers along

with new families moving out

to the township have helped the

business phenomenally.

Mrs Kupe said the business

makes its profit between 5.30am

and 9am when truck drivers

arrive.

“We are open at 5am, they

know they can get a coffee and

pie . . . you have to go where your

market is,” she said.

Infometrics senior economist

Benje Patterson said while a

lot of the extra $150 million from

dairy payouts has gone into debt

repayment, some of it has filtered

through to retail spending.

He said dairy prices have risen

significantly putting farmers in

a much healthier financial position.

“Now they are back in the

black making profit again. They

are not spending up like crazy or

anything but they are able to take

the handbrake of slightly,” Mr

Patterson said.

The report said other parts of

the agricultural sector including

sheep, beef and horticultural are

looking good for the next season.

Its optimistic outline for

Selwyn’s farming sector has been

backed by Federated Farmers

Michael Woodward.

He said any spare cash left over

from repaying debt will go into

maintenance offering the likes of

engineers or electricians in the

district more jobs from farms.

Mr Woodward said as a result

there is a flow-on affect into

retail.

Mr Patterson said money is

also trickling in from increased

tourists who often spend cash

on groceries, hospitality outlets

and fuel when travelling through

Selwyn.

Kirwee’s

mobile cell

site offers

4G coverage

SPARK HAS activated a new

mobile cell site in Kirwee,

delivering 4G coverage.

Kirwee has experienced significant

growth since the February

22, 2011, earthquake. According

to the district council, Kirwee is

forecast to increase its population

by 21 per cent in the next five

years.

Previously, Kirwee has had

limited mobile phone coverage, a

point of contention for many of

its residents.

Kirwee Community representative

and Scenic Hotel IT manager

Chris Clayton has lived in Kirwee

for about five years and says that

mobile coverage is vital.

“This is about connectivity for

the town, being able to make calls

within the community, being connected

and for those of us who

have businesses in and around

Kirwee – being easily contactable

by our customers. ‘‘

Said Spark’s head of South Island

Paul Deavoll: “We’re always

looking to improve mobile service

across New Zealand and we’re

excited that Kirwee is now able to

access the benefits of 4G.’’

ROLLESTON Community

Centre’s Mature and Motivated

recreation class is so much fun it

has 90-year-olds doing shoulderstands.

The class is low impact fun and

exercise aimed at active people

50 years and over, and includes

activities such as hula hooping,

trampoline, exercycling, ball

passing, and dancing, all set to a

fun, upbeat soundtrack.

As well as the physical benefits,

the class is a very social occasion,

which is nearly always followed

with a coffee and chat.

At 90, Rolleston resident Les

Cotton is a newbie to recreation

classes.

He started attending following

his wife’s death earlier this year.

Mr Cotton wasn’t sure about the

class at first but after giving it a

go says he really enjoys it.

“I’ve met a lot of new people

and it’s very social, with coffee

after. It’s where you go to make

new friends.”

Pat Jones, 87, has been going

to the class for the last six years.

She drives into Rolleston from

Darfield twice a week.

Mrs Jones said she first started

the class as a way to stay active,

and has continued with it for the

people.

“I just love it. I’ve made wonderful

friends and the instructor

Ingrid is very good. I had an accident

two years ago and was so

supported by the kind people I’ve

met at the class. At Christmas

time I buy vouchers for them to

the local cafes where we meet

after each class. My favourite

activity is the rowing machine.

It uses every muscle, and I like

the challenge. The bike is another

favourite of mine,” she said.

At only $3 per class, Mature

and Motivated is a low-cost way

to keep fit. Instructor Ingrid

Phelan says the best part about

taking the class is the people.

“They inspire me – it can

be emotional seeing them

interacting. The best part of the

class is the people and the way

they look out for each other. A

typical class has 30 people in it,

and the same ones turn up both

days per week. It’s great seeing

them all having fun and having

a laugh.”

The Mature and Motivated

class is held on Tuesdays

11–11.45am and Fridays

12–12.45pm during term times.

$3 per session. No booking

required.

Lincoln High students

on Nepal expedition fundraiser

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A LARGE fundraising effort is

set to get under way as Lincoln

High School students prepare to

go to earthquake-ravaged Nepal.

It will be the first time the

school has taken part in World

Challenge – an expedition

organisation providing students

trips abroad.

Students will help communities

in Nepal who are still

recovering from the 7.8 quake in

April, 2015.

More than 30 students ranging

from year 10 to 12 along with

teachers will depart for Nepal in

December next year and need to

raise about $8000 each.

The trip’s managing organiser

Kylie Wissel said she thought the

trip could be something for the

school as it is also a community

that has been shaken by earthquakes.

While students are yet to lock

in an itinerary for the trip, projects

could range from building

a new classroom at the school to

digging trenching irrigation piping

for a township.

“It is an opportunity to give

these guys a destination they

EXPLORE: Lincoln High students are planning their first expedition to earthquake-ravaged Nepal.

might not ever go to again in

their lives,” Mrs Wissel said.

As part of the trip, Lincoln

will visit its sister school Jumbesi

Government School which it has

been supporting with fundraisers

for the past five years.

Students have been divided

into permanent teams for both

the trip and fundraising

projects – Team Everest and

Team Aoraki.

Each team has created a food

product they will sale at markets.

Team Everest is a top-of-theworld

ice cream cookie cup

with a mini doughnut chocolate

syringe.

Team Aoraki’s is a Sherpa

sherbet spider.

The students will hold their

first major fundraiser evening

this Friday featuring master

will sale their products.

Mrs Wissel said the school will

also co-ordinate with Selwyn

Sounds to create a gourmet

hamper using products from the

district’s businesses and can be

pre-ordered after the new year.

An idea has also been formed

for the students to host a Nepalese

pizza evening.

“We will certainly be hopefully

visible in the Selwyn community

over the coming year . . . it is all

student-led at the end of the day,”

Mrs Wissel said.

•The hypnotist evening will

be held on Friday, 7pm, at

Lincoln High School’s hall.

from the school office.

Selwyn’s wearable art

ACE: Leeston

resident Rose

Carrick models

a costume she

designed.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE WEIRD and wonderful

has been unleashed at a wearable

art competition.

Art Couture NZ brought its

first fashion show to life in Tai

Tapu attracting about 150 people

through the door.

The show judged by designer

Loretta Sloan and artists

Steve Henderson and Blanche

Fryer featured about 29 designs

from residents both in Selwyn

and beyond.

Organiser Kim Strange

said the show has received a

lot of postive feedback and is

already looking at possible

venues and dates for next year’s

show.

“We are just looking at venues

because we will need to go bigger,”

she said.

Mrs Strange said people

were stunned at the quality

of the garments and people’s

creativity.

“It was just nice watching

everyone’s faces. You just saw

everyone getting a lot of pleasure

from it . . . we have got very

clever people,” she said.

The competition hosted by

Christchurch city councillor

Anne Galloway had costumes

ranging from a phoenix-styled

dress to futuristic-themed.

Mrs Strange said several Lincoln

High School students went

to the show and will enter next

year.

The audience also had the

chance to mix with the designers

and models at supper time.

“People were able to see the

outfits up close and go and talk

to the designers to see how they

made them . . . they seemed to

enjoy that,” Mrs Strange said.

Unearthed

Excavating our stock room we have brought some

hidden gems to light.

Historic through to recent works will be displayed in

an exhibition unlike any we have held before. Any

artwork can be taken on the purchase day for the

ticket price, no need to wait until the end of the

show. You can also take the silent auction option,

make a respectful written offer to the artist. At the

end of the show the highest bid will be considered,

perhaps it will be yours, a chance to get an artwork

‘for a song’.

Delve into the wonderful paintings, sculptures and

prints by emerging and established artists. Some

of the participants are Robin Slow, Brent Forbes,

Anna Dalzell, Chris Pole, Jane Downes, Hamish

Southcott, Carol Stensrud, Chris Moore, Rae West,

Jill Perrott, Barb Warren and many more.

That esoteric artwork that has haunted you for

years may be back to tempt you, others may

seem like old friends, whatever, it will certainly be

a diverse and intriguing show. Presales welcome.

Donald McMillan

Long-serving volunteer firefighter follows

Chief fire officer

Donald McMillan,

67, has marked 50

years service to the

Southbridge Volunteer

Fire Brigade. He spoke

to Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

Fifty years is a big deal. Did you

have a great evening celebrating

recently?

I had a good evening. We

had the logistical part one

night and then I invited all the

family and friends to the fire

station another day about a week

ago. It was a good day. A lot of

people I hadn’t seen for years.

It was good to catch up and

reminisce.

It has gone fast?

I remember when I got my 25

year gold star. I thought I would

never get to 50 years. I suppose

as I said in the speech the other

evening “doesn’t time fly when

you are having fun.” I have

enjoyed it which is good.

What led you to becoming a

firefighter?

My father Trevor was the

deputy chief fire officer in

Southbridge for a few years.

LONG-SERVING: Southbridge chief fire officer Donald McMillan has been recognised for 50

years service.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

The chief fire officer in

Southbridge at the time Doug

Goulden asked me if I would

be interested in joining the

Southbridge Volunteer Fire

Brigade. Dad had actually

retired. At the time I thought

I don’t know about this. But

anyway I said yes, I will give it

a go. It must have been in my

blood with my father being in

the service. It went on from

there. I have enjoyed it. It has

been very rewarding.

Do you remember the first

time you went out on a job and

what happened?

The only thing I remember-I

think it was to a rubbish pit. It

is now called Crossgates Rd but

it was sort of on North Rakaia

Rd. I can very vividly remember

in this pit there was that many

rats running around. Rats don’t

worry me but it is just something

I noticed.

You haven’t always wanted to

be a firefighter?

Until I joined the Southbridge

Fire Station I hadn’t made my

mind up on where I wanted to

be. I think now if I had my time

over again I may have become

a career firefighter. But I think

the volunteer side is just as

important as the career side in

the Fire Service. We are 24/7. I

just hope we never see the day

where they are going to start to

pay volunteers. I don’t like that

idea.

Why is that?

I think it gets too messy.

I think the word volunteer

is volunteer and that is it. I

think to be part of a volunteer

organisation in the size we are

is something pretty damn good

and pretty damn rewarding.

in father’s footsteps

Are Southbridge volunteer

numbers growing?

We were down to about 14

members for a while and we are

now up to 22 again. We have been

pretty lucky over the last five to

six years. We haven’t had any

problems recruiting people. I had

a woman probably five years ago

– she rang me up one day saying

“I wouldn’t mind joining the fire

brigade”. I said come down and

see me tonight and I will have

wee sort of interview and talk

about it. I asked what she does

and she was a house wife living

in Southbridge. She said to me

“the first thing I want to ask you

is how much do I get paid?” I said

“you get paid the same amount as

me” and she said “that would be

all right”. I said that is nothing.

And she got up and walked out.

Is there a process for getting

into the Fire Service?

There is a process. As far as

volunteers go we sort of rely on

people’s ability and to know they

are fit before they join. When

they do join they do what we call

is a basic firefighters course. They

will see what they are like how

fit they are. I don’t really know if

anyone has failed from not being

fit enough because I think people

are aware you have got to have a

certain level of fitness before you

join.

Carrying all that heavy gear

would take it out of you?

Yes, it does now. It is the heat

and things like that. You can

get a bit exhausted at times. In

the service everyone’s safety is

paramount. It is other things

like wearing the right protective

clothes. It is that bloody hot

sometimes. It is nice to take the

gear off in a nice cold breeze to

cool down.

You mentioned you would

have been a career firefighter,

was there any reason you did

not?

I don’t think it is any particular

reason. The thing was I was

working for my father in a family

business and I presume that may

have been what kept me back. If

I had my life over again I would

probably do that. There are

probably lots of things I would

change.

Tell me about your career

outside the fire.

I was actually a blacksmith.

Dad was a blacksmith and I just

carried on in his footsteps for

a number of years. My father

taught me the trade. I was learning

since I was a child. I used to

go to the blacksmith’s shop in

Southbridge and just spent time

there after school doing bits and

pieces welding and all that stuff.

When I was probably 10 I was

welding and doing engineering

things. Dad said to me when you

leave school just follow in my

shoes.

You have been working with

fire for a while.

Yes, I also slowly got into what

we called pumping water pumps.

I spent a number of years doing

that and doing irrigation work

and in my earlier days I did water

supplies for the district council in

Rolleston and I did the water supply

in Leeston and Dunsandel. I

put the main waterline in. I have

always been fascinated by water.

What is the most difficult part

of your job as chief fire officer?

We have got so many people in

different stages in their careers

and different stages in their life.

I have seen many people join

and many people go. Managing

is relatively easy as long as you

can talk to people. It is a matter

of communicating with people.

All those guys as far as I am

concerned are equal except for

the offices that have a bigger

leadership role. I have always felt

you have got to lead by example. I

like to be part of the team and be

there with the guys. I still drive

the fire appliance and if they are

short I will go as an officer. It is

a hands-on thing and it is something

I don’t want to lose.

Our People

Fifty years firefighting service recognised

How do you cope attending

serious accidents and fatals?

We had those three young

people killed just down the road

from us last Christmas. It was in

our patch. We had peer support

people come out and talk to us

to make sure we were all right.

Brigade members talked amongst

themselves which was good. I

think the guys that went to that

call were pretty open about how

they felt. The thing is you don’t

want to hide things because it is

going to bottle up inside you. You

have got to let it out. Generally

the problem being in districts

like Southbridge, Dunsandel and

Leeston is you generally know the

person. I think it is just a matter

of discussing what has happened

and getting someone to come and

talk to you if you need help. The

February 22, 2011, earthquake –

we responded to that very early

on in the piece. Probably within

the first 10 minutes we were

asked to respond. We went into

Sockburn Fire Station. We gathered

there and then they turned

us out to the CTV building

and the PGC building. We did

Colombo St. We saw a lot of dead

people. It wasn’t very nice. That

was probably the worst thing I

have had to do in the whole of my

career.

How long have you been the

chief fire officer for?

Twelve years. I was deputy

chief fire officer about 15 years

before that.

What are the most common

type of incidents you have to

attend to?

Probably scrub fires. People not

taking care, lighting little fires on

a hot day and then ignoring it.

We try to educate these people as

do the local authorities. A lot of

times it is just people who don’t

take care to look after fires. They

have to realise these little fires

turn into big fires. Sometimes

you have to go from three or

four a day and you think God

almighty when is the next one

coming?

Do you have a memorable

moment in the Fire Service that

jumps out at you?

Probably building the new

fire station at Southbridge two

years ago. I was lucky enough

to be chief when that building

started. I have sort of seen it right

through. I was involved with the

planning, involved with the design

work. That was probably the

most rewarding part because we

saw it completed and got a great

building out of it. Our old station

was absolutely buggered. I suppose

you could say the old station

was intimate but the new station

was a lot bigger and glossier.

Tell me about your family?

My wife Carolyn has been behind

me 100 per cent all the way

there. As for my children Simon

and Lisa, I said at the speech the

other night: “you have to excuse

me for not going to all the family

picnics and family days out”. We

did sit round on hot north westerly

days in case the fire alarm

went. My wife has been very

supportive. She would be the first

one out there to help.

Where did you go to school?

I went to Waitaki Boys’ High

School in Oamaru. Got sent away

there. I probably would have

preferred to stay but I was very

big on sport those days. All I did

was play sport mainly. Probably

my academic skills weren’t that

good but sport wasn’t bad. I was

in the second 11. I have played

cricket for Ellesmere. Now I look

after Southbridge Park. I do all

the cricket pitches there.

Do you have anything else you

like to do in your spare time?

I just like spending time with

the grandchildren. I have five. I

follow rugby quite a bit. I also like

watching cricket. The Fire Service

is my biggest passion. We will

probably have a bit of a holiday

while up there. Fire Service has

Working with water

Selwyn

Waihora Zone

Committee

chairman

Allen Lim

writes about

where

wastewater

goes

It’s been a wet winter. The

Selwyn is flowing again and

groundwater levels are rising.

Does that mean we can stop

worrying about what happens in

the dry times? Of course not.

More dry weather will come,

so we need to press on with our

plans to protect our natural

environment and future-proof

the local economy and our water

supplies.

Your zone committee is doing

just that. In August, for example,

we welcomed funding for

infrastructure to access water

from the Central Plains Water

scheme pipeline into the Selwyn

River/Waikirikiri.

This project will result in

more water in the river that

has particularly suffered from

drought and will go a long way

towards restoring swimming

sites.

Meanwhile, the wet weather

has given us an opportunity to

see where the water is coming

from or going to.

Run-off carries most of the

phosphorous, sediment and faecal

contamination that leads to

water quality issues.

In the wet, you can see clearly

where this run-off comes from.

So, when you walk along your

local streams and drains, look at

where the water is running off

and work out what can be done

to stop or trap it.

This may be as simple as

redirecting run-off from a farm

We are working with farmers

to get involved and make

a difference. Please contribute

and share your ideas, as many

Eyes on amateur title

•From page 1

Last year Brettkelly qualified

for the matchplay format at

Royal Wellington Golf Club

but was defeated on the 20th

hole by eventual winner Louis

Dobbelaar in the round of 32.

Brettkelly says the match play

format can sometimes suit his

game.

“I tend to be a bit erratic

sometimes. If you have a triple

bogey it doesn’t matter so much

compared to stroke play,” said

Brettkelly.

He will come into the

tournament on the back of some

strong results. Earlier this month

he helped Canterbury win the

under-19 boys’ interprovincial

golf title in Cambridge.

“We lost to Otago in the final

a couple of years. It was the final

year for a few of us so it was

great to get a win with the boys,”

said Brettkelly.

He also has a few more things

he’d like to tick off the list before

going to college, including

competing in his first New

Zealand Open. A number of

regional qualifying tournaments

will be held in advance of the

tournament in March.

“I got to the final stage

of qualifying last year but

didn’t quite make it,” said Brettkelly.

With his attention turning

purely to golf over the summer

his chances of making it will

certainly be better than 12

months ago.

Although he’s based in the city

for school, Brettkelly returns

home to Darfield at the weekends

and still plays his home

course at Hororata at least once

a month.

“I love it out there. The people

are so nice and they’ve been

really supportive and done a lot

for me over the years, so I love

representing the club when I

play,” said Brettkelly.

He shares the course record

at Hororata of 65 and is the

current holder of the club’s

championship title.

The squad travelled to Timaru

this month to defend their title.

Their only loss came in pool play

at the hands of Wanganui (2-3).

They beat Manawatu (12-0),

Thames Valley (7-0) and Hawkes

Waikato 4-0 in the quarter-final.

After a tough 2-1 win over host

South Canterbury in the semifinal,

the girls faced Wellington

in the final. Christchurch Girls’

home the winner from a penalty

corner with 4min to go. She then

added another to close out the

game 4-2.

Villa Maria’s Kate Davies

was the top scorer for the side,

netting eight goals during the

tournament.

Canterbury’s under-15 A girls

side also won a national title after

travelling to North Harbour.​

The under-15 A boys were

year in a row.

Ethan, 14, joined 270 of

the South Island’s top young

mountain bikers who competed

in age groups from under-14

through to under-20 at Signall

Hill, Dunedin.

The Coalgate resident claimed

both the under-15 super-D (a

blend of cross-country and

downhill) and cross-country

titles. He also finished second in

the downhill race, which gave

him a commanding win in the

combined points.

Even more impressively,

Ethan’s times in both the

downhill and super-D were good

enough for sixth overall. In his

favoured cross-country event,

Ethan was pushed early on in the

five-lap race before pulling away

to win by almost 2min.

The racing was made extremely

challenging for riders with heavy

rain, thunder and lightning

making for very muddy courses.

Ethan has previously won

the under-13 age group over

consecutive years (2014, 2015)

and won the under-14 age group

in 2016.

After getting into cycling at

a young age with his parents,

Ethan is now coached by David

Plew, who also coaches Commonwealth

Games gold medallist

Anton Cooper. Ethan often

trains for cross-country with

Cooper and the Oliver brothers

Craig and Ben.

His hopes for the future are to

follow in the footsteps of the likes

of Cooper and to also gain a spot

in the national mountain bike

performance hub in Rotorua.

The hub, which was created last

year, provides training and development

for both cross-country

and downhill riders.

Ethan will now turn his attention

to the national and Oceania

mountain biking championships

in 2018. He will step up a grade

to the under-17 category at national

level this year.

Scott Medal for

Lincoln scientist

A LINCOLN Agritech Ltd

scientist known for his

pioneering work in electronic

engineering has been honoured

by the Royal Society Te

Apārangi.

Chief scientist and group

manager of Lincoln Agritech’s

Technology Group Professor

Ian Woodhead received

the Scott Medal,

an engineering science

and technology award.

The award is in recognition

of the wide range

of sensors he has developed

for the agricultural

and environmental sectors.

Presented annually, the

Research Honours celebrate

t he outstanding achievements

and excellence of New Zealand

researchers.

During his almost 40 year

career, Professor Woodhead

created a number of globallymarketed

sensors.

This includes devices to evaluate

the performance of electric

fences and an electronic soil

moisture sensor called Aquaflex,

sold by Streat Instruments,

which paved the way for more

efficient irrigation systems,

Ian

Woodhead

SELWYN TIMES

allowing farmers to use water

more sustainability.

He also invented a new

technique to measure water distribution

within materials, such

as moisture profile in soil and

water distribution in timber.

His Lincoln Agritech research

team has recently created

a low cost optical ground

water nitrate sensor, the

“HydroMetrics – Nitrate

GW50” to measure

nitrate concentrations in

groundwater.

The medal selection

committee deemed

this a good example of

Professor Woodhead applying

“his wide grasp of physics,

mathematics, engineering and

electronics to solve technological

problems for New Zealand’s

agricultural sector”.

Lincoln Agritech says the new

technology will help New Zealand’s

agricultural industries

manage the trade-off between

increasing productivity and

sustainability.

Professor Woodhead holds a

PhD in applied physics and has

been an adviser for MBIE Science

and assessor for the French

National Research Agency.

Prebbleton racers go head-to-head

• By Andrew King

TWO YOUNG Prebbleton

racers will go head-to-head when

the Toyota 86 Championship

starts next week.

Fifteen-year-old Jaden Ransley

will compete against 21-year-old

Jack Milligan in the opening

round on November 3-5 at

Pukekohe.

Milligan and Ransley met each

other through karting and now

live less than a kilometre apart.

Both are really good mates

off the track, but it is a different

story on it.

“There’s a rivalry between all

the drivers. We are all there to be

at the front and Jack is no different

to any of the other competitors,”

Ransley said.

“There is no hatred between us

but for sure there is a lot

of competition between all

drivers.”

Milligan recently climbed the

podium at Mount Panorama

after finishing third in race two

in the Toyota 86 Racing Series.

He was the only New Zealander

in the 36-car field, one of

the main support class for the V8

Supercars and also set the fastest

racing lap time, just 1/10th

slower than the Toyota 86 lap

record.

Earlier in the week, Milligan

showed he was on the pace by

finishing the qualifying session

with the seventh fastest time.

YOUNG TALENT: Jaden Ransley had never driven a manual-shift car before making his debut

in the Toyota 86 Championship. ​

Ransley, who attends St

Thomas’, said Milligan’s result in

Australia was amazing.

‘There’s a rivalry between all

the drivers. We are all there to

be at the front and Jack is no

different to any of the other

competitors.’ – Jaden Ransley

“It would have definitely

given him a huge confidence

boost coming into the season,

but I am confident we will be

able to match his pace if not be

faster throughout the season,” he

said.

When Milligan was asked

what he thought about the

youngster saying he could

match his pace and possibly

be faster, he let out a small

chuckle.

“We will see about that in the

first round,” he said.

Milligan said he was looking

forward to getting stuck into the

racing and battling Ransley for

the title.

“It would be great if we end up

in a title race. I won the rookie

title last year and he was giving

me a good run throughout the

events,” he said.

In spite of his age, Ransley is

not new to motorsport.

SPORTS

He has raced karts for six

years, winning two national

KartSport titles and another pair

in the South Island.

With the opening round of

the 2017-2018 Toyota 86 Championship

a few weeks away,

Ransley said he is taking aim at

the title.

in Toyota 86 series

“I want to be on that top step

this year,” he said.

Before making his debut in

the Toyota 86 Championship,

he had never driven a manualshift

car and as he goes into

this year’s six-round series he

is 15, still too young to hold a

road licence.

Ransley was just 14 when

he contested last year’s

championship, making him

one of the youngest ever.

Ransley has received support

and advice from Christchurchbased

race engineer Andy

Neale, who has worked

in formula one and took

Singaporean Andrew Tang to

the Toyota Racing Series title

in 2014.

Neale has been coaching the

youngster throughout his preseason

preparation.

When the championship

kicks off as a support category

for the V8 Supercars weekend

November 3-5, Ransley will

go up against another mentor,

Tom Alexander.

Alexander won the Championship

in 2015 and has been

racing in the NZV8s since but

returns to drive Kenny Smith’s

86.

Totally sold on single-make

racing, Ransley said he wants

to contest the Australian

Toyota 86 Racing Series in

2018 and then move to the

Porsche Carrera Cup.

FAST: Jack Milligan was the only Kiwi competing in the Toyota

86s at Bathurst and climbed the podium in the second race with

a third place finish.

Adams appointed

chieftain for games

SELWYN MP Amy Adams will

wear a new hat soon – she is

the chieftain for the Hororata

Highland Games.

Hororata Community Trust

chairman Richard Land said

when selecting a chieftain it

looks for people who have

served the community or has

Scottish connections.

“Ms Adams has always supported

the work of the trust and

has been to every event.

“She has taken a vested interest

in our community and we

are thrilled that she accepted

our invitation to fill the role of

chieftain,” he said.

The games will be held on November

11, and usually attracts

between 8000-10,500 people.

Ms Adams will be the first

female chieftain of the Hororata

Highland Games

Past chieftains have included

TVNZ newsreader Simon Dallow,

Gerry Brownlee, Governor

General Sir Jerry Mateparae and

Sir Bob Parker.

In Scottish tradition, there

is always a chieftain who is the

master of ceremonies and a key

figure in the day’s activities.

Ms Adams’ duties include

However you like it - Our work spans all types of house building

When it comes to scope and style the homes you see here are just the tip of the roofline. With

decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes have worked in all areas of residential

construction. There are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom home compared

to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our overall approach remains the same.

While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted home building we also are renowned

for getting the right result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult access,

looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of life for us.

My husband and I have just moved into a home built by

Artisan Homes. Even though it is a large home we had no

delays with supply or tradesmen. We were concerned when

choosing a builder as we are in the Christchurch rebuild

zone. Rob and his team were honest, very prompt sorting

out any queries and helped with choices throughout the

entire build. We are very pleased with our home. The

quality and service was excellent. If we ever build again, it

will be with Artisan Homes.

All aboard the

Show Me Selwyn bus

Four bus tours are being offered to Selwyn residents interested in getting to know their district

better. The Show Me Selwyn tours have been developed out of Council’s Newcomers and

Migrants strategy, with the aim to welcome those new to Selwyn and help them get to know

what’s in their backyard.

Connecting Communities Coordinator Tyla Harrison-Hunt says research carried out between 2014

and 2016 showed a need for more opportunities for newcomers to gain access to information

about their new home and connect with other newcomers and established residents.

“All Selwyn residents are welcome to join The Show Me Selwyn bus tours to get to know our

beautiful district while making new connections. We want Selwynites to participate in the

community and connect with others. This will help them to flourish in the Selwyn community,”

says Mr Harrison-Hunt.

From November 2017 to February 2018 four trial trips will take place, with room for 35 passengers

on each bus trip. The destinations will include historical landmarks, tourist attractions, and

townships, along with opportunities to enjoy the Selwyn countryside. Following an assessment of

the success of the trips, more Show Me Selwyn tours may be planned in the future.

Two different routes are available to choose from:

· Foothills and Mountains will tour through the Malvern and central Selwyn area, with stops

including a visit to Springfield’s famous donut, followed by a guided tour and lunch at Homebush

Stables. The two dates for Foothills and Mountains are Saturday 11 November 2017 and

Saturday 13 January 2018.

· Lake to Pā will take passengers on a trip around the Springs and Ellesmere areas, stopping at

the Lincoln market, Taumutu’s Ngati Moki Marae and Taumutu beach. The two dates for Lake to

Pā are Saturday 9 December 2017 and Saturday 10 February 2018.

Tickets cost $5 per person from eventbrite.co.nz.

For more information contact showmeselwyn@selwyn.govt.nz, phone 347 2956, or see Council’s

Facebook page, SelwynDistrictCouncil.

Public Places Bylaw – Have your say

Selwyn District Council is inviting submissions on the Proposed Public Places Bylaw and Proposed

Policy on Commercial Activities and Events in Public Places.

The Council proposes to create a Public Places Bylaw to regulate activities in public places and

a Policy on Commercial Activities and Events in Public Places. An increasing number of traders,

particularly food carts and vans have been operating or seeking to operate on public land.

The Council currently has no way of regulating these activities, however it currently authorises a large

number of events including drive in movies, musical events, picnics, pool parties and larger events such

as Have a Go Days, Cultural Festivals and the World Buskers Festival.

The proposed Bylaw and Policy will manage:

· Commercial activities in public places and requirements for outdoor/indoor dining/occupation of

footpaths/public spaces.

· Events in public places including festivals, theme days, recreational/promotional activity, concerts,

fairs, parades, outdoor family movies and music on the green sessions.

Have your say

The proposed Bylaw and Policy, submission forms and a statement of proposal are available at all

Council service centres and libraries and on the Council’s website at www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay.

The consultation period runs from Monday 30 October 2017 to Friday 1 December 2017. You can make

your submission online or by emailing submissions@selwyn.govt.nz.

You can also post your submission and address it to: The Regulatory Manager, Selwyn District Council,

Places, P O Box 90, Rolleston.

Celebrate 120 years of Rewi Alley

A celebration to commemorate Rewi Alley’s 120th anniversary will

be held at Springfield in December.

Rewi Alley was born in Springfield on 2 December 1897. He

contributed perhaps more than any other foreigner to the Chinese

revolution. He was the founder and inspiration for the NZ China

Friendship Society, dedicating 60 years of his life to his adopted

country, while remaining a New Zealander at heart.

Rewi organised thousands of industrial co-operatives during the war

against Japan, and also pioneered technical training schools. He

founded the Shandan Bailie School in 1944 in the Gansu Province

on the Silk Route. As Rewi affected the lives of many thousands in

China, he is highly revered there.

A major project in 1997 for

centenary of his birth was the

establishment of a memorial,

park and display in Sheffield.

The celebration will be held on

Saturday 2 December 2017

at the Rewi Alley Memorial in

Springfield at 1.30pm, followed by

refreshments in the Tawera Hall.

A number of delegations from

China are expected to attend the

commemoration.

Mature, motivated, fun and fit

Rolleston Community Centre’s Mature and Motivated recreation class

is a low impact fun exercise class aimed at people 50 years and over,

and includes activities such as hula hooping, trampoline, exercycling,

ball passing, and dancing, all set to a fun, upbeat soundtrack.

As well as the physical benefits, the class is a very social occasion,

which is nearly always followed with a coffee and chat.

At 90 years old, Les Cotton is a newbie to recreation classes. He

started coming to classes after his wife passed away earlier this

year. Les wasn’t sure about the class at first but after giving it a go

says he really enjoys it.

“I’ve met lots of new people and it’s very social with coffee after. It’s

where you go to make new friends.”

At only $3 per class, Mature and Motivated is a low-cost way to

keep fit. Instructor Ingrid Phelan says the best part about taking the

class is the people.

“They inspire me – it can be emotional seeing them interacting. The

best part of the class is the people and the way they look out for

each other. A typical class has 30 people in it, and the same ones

turn up both days per week. It’s great seeing them all having fun

and having a laugh.”

The Mature and Motivated class is held Tuesdays 11–11.45am

and Fridays 12–12.45pm during term times. $3 per session. No

booking required.

For more information phone the Rolleston Community Centre on

347 2882 or ask at the counter.

Backyard Critters

EXOTIC: The false katipo

katipo. ​

THE FALSE katipo or

Steatoda capensis is one of

many exotic spider species

found around your back

yard.

Originally from South Africa,

this small shiny

black/dark brown spider is

very common and sometimes

has a red stripe on its rear,

causing it to be mistaken for

our native katipo, Latrodectus

katipo.

Along some coastlines, the

South African imposter is

thought to be out-competing

our native katipo, causing

significant conservation

concern.

Although the two species

have similarities, the bite of

the native katipo is much

more painful and serious than

the false katipo.

Steatoda capensis is commonly

found in dark, dry

places such as under firewood,

where it will prey on other

invertebrates.

Males are much smaller

than females and often have

small white dots along the

abdomen, and sometimes a

red stripe on their rear.

Egg sacs are white cotton

wool-like balls about 1cm in

diameter.

Gardening

Delicious berries

If you want to grow berries, but aren’t sure which ones or how,

Hannah Zwartz has a place to start

THERE ARE many things to love

about growing berries.

They’re compact plants,

squeezing against fences, into

large tubs or otherwise unused

corners.

Many tolerate part-shade,

which is useful on an urban

section, and makes them great

companion plants forming the

understorey or canopy of a ‘food

forest’.

Unlike fruit trees, they crop

within the first year of planting,

and of course, they taste all the

more delicious when freshly

picked.

‘FEET IN THE SHADE, HEADS

IN THE SUN’

Many berries are found

naturally in deciduous

woodlands, lifting themselves

into sunlight to flower and fruit,

but spreading their roots in deep,

damp leaf litter. They need sun

to fruit well, but they dislike dry,

baking heat, preferring a coolish

root run that never totally dries

out. Too much humidity or

waterlogging are not good either.

Ideal conditions for most berries

would be free-draining soil with

plenty of compost and leaf mould,

deeply mulched with rotting

woodchip.

WHERE CAN BERRIES

GROW?

The ultimate garden accessory

must be a walk-in netting-covered

cage (birds love ripe berries

almost as much as children do).

Failing that, those with smaller

gardens can use a fence or wall to

support berry canes, with netting

attached to drop down and cover

ripening fruit. There’s a berry

to suit most niches – even the

smallest garden has room for a

tub or barrel with strawberries,

raspberries or boysenberry canes.

STRAWBERRIES

A bowl of fresh-picked

strawberries for summer

breakfasts is an achievable luxury;

as well as being delicious these

berries are rich in vitamins and

iron. Ancestral strawberries were

woodland plants, fruiting early,

before the leaf canopy closed over

for summer. Modern strawberries

are bred for later fruiting, and

need lots of sun to fruit well,

but still hate to dry out. For a

longer season, plant more than

one variety. Prepare a bed with

plenty of compost; planting along

a ridge above a ditch makes for

easy watering. A nice deep mulch

of pine needles is said to improve

the flavour while also deterring

snails. Strawberries also do well

in large pots, which can be moved

into the garden’s sunniest spots as

berries are ripening.

Plants might be short-lived,

producing their best crops for

just a few years, but you can

keep propagating runners for an

ongoing supply of new plants. Peg

the first runner into a pot, to be

cut off and replanted once roots

have grown. (Those further down

the line will never crop as well.)

Replanting these runners every

winter or spring, while digging

out the oldest plants, keeps the

bed producing well. Experts

recommend six to seven plants

per person.

•Turn to page 29

Have you got

seedlings to

plant out?

If you have been raising seeds, it will soon be time to plant

the seedlings 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 outside elements. It helps

them to cope better with the change of direct sunlight,

ranging temperatures, and wind. 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 strengthen the stems and cell walls, which

will reduce transplant shock. The plants

are then best transplanted in the

cooler evenings, and then treated

to a good watering afterwards.

This process will be great for the

seedlings such as corn, zucchini, pumpkin,

cucumber, tomatoes, and lettuces.

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:

9 Try not to disturb the

roots

9 Bring as much of the

root ball as you can

9 Water thoroughly after

9 Always make sure the

root ball stays moist

gardening without guesswork

Question:

The wind can certainly

Answer: be a frustrating when

it comes to gardening!

Our Super Scree Mulching Bark is going to be

best for this. It is designed to bind together,

making it more resistant to wind disturbance. A

10cm layer is important also, as it will help to

strengthen that barrier, as well as suppressing

weeds, retaining moisture in the soil, and

reducing the chances of the soil drying out. We

recommend that you water the bark frequently,

for 6 weeks post application. This helps to settle

the bark so it can create that barrier that you

need. Another option would be our 55mm Bark

Mulch. Apply it the same way that you would

with the Super Scree to get all the benefits.

There’s a berry to suit most niches

Fire rages, homes at risk

•From page 27

Wild strawberry

Fragaria vesca has smaller

(pea-sized) fruits, not so juicy

but very sweet and flavoursome,

borne year-round. It can handle

more shade and makes a great

ground cover under fruit trees

or roses, or scrambling along the

edges of paths. This is one type

of strawberry that propagates

itself from seed, but being

shallow-rooted it’s easily removed

if it starts infringing on other

territories.

RASPBERRIES

Raspberries spread by

suckering and once planted

are difficult to dig out. A good

position could be against an eastfacing

wall that gets morning sun,

planted at the feet of deciduous

trees such as apples, or as part of a

hedgerow with other shrubs and

berries. They can happily coexist

with annual companions such as

borage and calendula. Remove

perennial weeds like buttercup

or couch before planting, as you

won’t be able to do so once the

raspberries’ roots have developed.

Thick mulching protects the root

zone and helps keep weeds away.

About two canes per person is

recommended; plant them about

80cm apart. You can plant closer

Blackberry

but they will very quickly fill in

the gaps, because raspberries

sucker prolifically, hence the

tradition of growing them in

narrow hedges or along wire

frames (this also helps with bird

netting). Unwanted suckers that

push their way into paths can be

removed or mown over.

BLACKBERRIES AND THEIR

HYBRIDS

While taking up less space than

a fruit tree, these need at least 2m

to spread out. Canes can grow on

a sunny fence or wall; against a

house, shed or garage; along wires

strung between posts or waratahs;

against a trellis; even up a pillar or

into a fruit tree if space is lacking.

Blackberriesm (left) could also

grow in a large container such as a

Wild strawberry

half-barrel, if well fed and watered.

I would always choose

thornless types. Try ‘Navaho’ or

‘Black Satin’. Loganberries are

a cross between blackberries

and raspberries. ‘Waimate’ is a

thornless one. Boysenberries are

hybrids with large, tasty fruits.

‘Thornless Jewel’ is a good variety.

All these have perennial root

systems, bearing biennial stems.

In the first year, canes grow long

and in the second year they bear

flowers and fruit on small sidebranches

(laterals).

GOOSEBERRIES

These seem to do best for South

Island gardeners. If you live in a

warmer climate, try them against

an east-facing wall to avoid the

drying afternoon sun. If space is

Raspberry

short they can be trained against

walls, espaliered, or even grown

in containers as long as they

don’t dry out. Each plant needs

about 1-1.5m. As with their close

relations the currants, plenty of

compost or manure keeps plants

strong. A regular dressing of

wood ash or potash ensures good

fruiting, and a deep layer of mulch

keeps roots cool and moist and

helps avoid weeds.

BLUEBERRIES

Blueberries are quite particular

about their growing conditions,

but get those right and they

can do well across the country.

Part of the trick is choosing the

right variety, and this depends

on which part of the country

you are in. Some are deciduous

and need winter chilling – just

to be confusing, these are

called ‘northern’ types (from

the northern, cooler states of

America) while rabbiteye and

‘southern’ types, bred for warmer

climates, suit northern parts

of New Zealand better (from

Waikato northwards). Most

varieties also do best with a

different sort nearby to crosspollinate

them.

Try to keep the soil moist but

not soggy. If you are gardening on

sand or clay, the best bet may be

to grow blueberry plants in a large

tub or barrel filled with compostrich,

acid soil and well mulched

with woodchip to keep the shallow

roots from drying out.

BOYSENBERRY

Walter Knott named the

boysenberry after Rudolph

Boysen. Exactly how Rudolf

Boysen came across the

boysenberry remains a mystery,

but it is said to have been

cultivated by cross-pollinating

the flowers of three other

berries: raspberry, loganberry

and blackberry. Propagate

boysenberries by cuttings, or by

layering. The fruit doesn’t have a

long shelf life, but it’s not difficult

to ensure they are consumed

quickly.

Gas up the barby

At this time of year we are likely to get the

whiff of steak and sausages cooking on the

barbecue, signalling that it is time to get the

barbecue up and running again for cooking

alfresco over summer.

During winter, barbecues sitting idle are

at the mercy of insects, especially spiders

that crawl into and block up the pipes,

jets and gas burners. If not cleaned out

these pesky creatures may cause a smoky

environment leaving your steak on the grill,

and any pots or pans on gas rings covered

in greasy soot.

To avoid these problems, it is worth

having your barbecue serviced and Kiwi

Gas make this easy. They will give your

barbecue a quick look over, cleaning out

any blocked jets and making sure your

barbecue is running properly for as little as

$49.00.

There is also no need to worry about

running out of gas when the crowd is

around. Just take your bottle down to the

Kiwi Gas drive-through where they fill all

sizes of gas bottle, on the spot. You will not

have to wait long and if you need help with

heavy bottles let the team know and they

will unload them for you, and also load the

bottles back into your car once filled. Be

sure to check the gas bottle in your outdoor

gas heater too.

Kiwi Gas can also deliver a swap a bottle

(9kg to 45kg) to your door, usually within

24 hours.

Planning a function outdoors even

in summer, can be uncertain however,

Kiwi Gas can help ensure your guests are

warmed by gas heaters, which they hire for

the very affordable price of just $29.00 a

night (per heater).

Embraced by many Cantabrians who are

turning to this locally owned and operated

company for their gas supply, Kiwi Gas is

now the fastest growing gas supplier in the

region. This is not surprising given that at

Kiwi Gas, they pride themselves on offering

a ‘fast as, cheap as, sweet as’ service.

“If you’re not getting your gas from us

you’re probably paying too much,” says

Kiwi Gas founder, Malcolm.

Their pools are imported from Leisure Pools

in Australia with a range of sizes and extra

features like lights, fountains, a swim turbine,

and spa jets.

Lagoon Pools owners, Julie and Warren

hold the dealership for Leisure Pools for the

South Island area, south of North Canterbury,

with their team installing throughout this

area.

To complete the package they also supply

pool heating, pumps, filtration, pool cleaners,

salt water chlorinators, controllers, covers and

rollers, water features and pool surrounds

and fencing.

Lagoon Pools are also the New Zealand

dealers for the Elite Hideaway Roller system,

a light, easy to use pool cover that tucks back

out of sight under concrete paving back from

the pool’s edge. If wanting an automated

system, their slat pool cover rolls and hides

away with the push of a button and can be

remotely controlled or via your cell phone

along with other features like the lighting and

spa jets.

Cleaning the pool need not be a chore or

an objection to a pool with a top-of-the-line

robotic cleaner from Lagoon Pools. It scrubs

the walls and the bottom as it moves along the

pool, further filtering the water as it cleans.

Julie can even assist with your Council pool

consent, drawing up plans and completing

the application form (a service she provides

Make the

most of

garden tours

Undeniably the best way to identify

suitable plants for growing in the Selwyn

area is to look at other gardens with this

season’s garden tours offering opportunity

to view some stunning gardens.

Gardens to be seen as part of the tours

vary from those on lifestyle blocks to

smaller gardens like Amanda Haywood’s

garden in West Melton’s Gainsborough

subdivision.

“Our section is almost 2,000 square

metres. It’s allowed us to create a number

of areas that include a patio and grassed

courtyard with built in seating and pergola,

formal buxus hedged peony, iris and

lavender gardens, an orchard, herb garden,

raised vegetable beds and fernery at the

rear of the house,” explains Amanda.

More inspiration can be gained from

some of Selwyn’s most recognised gardens.

These include the truly beautiful and

internationally acclaimed Broadfield

Garden that covers 3.5 hectares with

many different areas; and the 24 year old

Frensham garden at Tai Tapu.

More information about these and other

interesting Selwyn gardens, nurseries and

high country estates can be found at: www.

sensationalselwyn.co.nz/garden-tours.

The established, cared for property of

a keen gardener may seem in a different

league to our own green thumb efforts,

however looking through such gardens

allows us to gain a better understanding of

gardening in Selwyn.

To make the most of your garden tour

experience:

• note the plants that grow well in the

area;

• note where particular species have been

planted in relation to sun, shelter and

wind;

• ask about particular plant species that are

flourishing;

• take photos of, or note down the names of

plants you would like to grow;

• look at how the garden is mulched for

moisture retention and weed management;

• look at the ways character has been added

and think what you might do in your own

garden; and

• most importantly enjoy the day.

A total of sixteen attractive and

inspirational gardens will be open

to the public for viewing in two

separate garden tours, Sunday, 12

November:

• The Selwyn Spring Garden Tour will

feature six gardens in the Broadfield,

Brookside and Irwell areas. To learn

more visit: selwyngardentour@gmail.

com.

• The West Melton St Paul’s Garden Tour

will comprise 10 gardens in and near the

town, with Devonshire teas available

and a plant sale where you may find

something for your garden to add to

the ideas, information and motivation

gained from the day. To learn more

TIMES 5

Turn your garden into a summer holiday

Our gardens can be a wonderful place

to spend time while encouraging children

to play outside is good for their health and

imaginations.

We may want to do more with our

exterior surroundings but not have the

time or we cannot decide how it should be.

Aaron at The Outdoor Space has

designed some amazing garden settings

that are a joy to look at and practical for the

people living in the home. He can create a

garden, perfectly themed for enjoying over

the summer months ahead.

From the basics such as laying a lawn

and installing an automated watering

system to keep the lawn green over the

warmer weather, to constructing the

hard landscaping features, The Outdoor

Space has the expertise and equipment to

complete the job. They can even link your

irrigation system to your phone so you can

control the watering while away on holiday.

The team at The Outdoor Space are

specialists in hard and soft landscaping

including walls, stonework, decks, paving,

fencing, pergolas, water features, outdoor

fires, irrigation systems, lawns and planting

out. They also landscape around your pool

areas, install artificial grass and build stone

walls, which Vicky and Aaron (owners of

The Outdoor Space) say are en vogue and

very popular at the moment.

Recently, the team installed an outdoor

kitchen complete with a barbecue and pizza

oven, a great idea for taking the mess out of

the house and allowing the cook to join the

party while preparing the food.

No matter what the size of your section,

the team at The Outdoor Space can turn

it into a place you will love while being

practical for your needs. They will even

incorporate recycled materials you have a

penchant for, such as a rustic old window

or old vehicle.

“I love creating unique and interesting

structures,” says Aaron.

If you have plans to entertain over the

Christmas period, you need to call The

Outdoor Space now. They can have the

decking and paving completed and pergolas

constructed along with other shading by

the time the really long hot summer days

are here. Spring is also lawn laying time.

Aaron will sit down with you to ascertain

your ideas for your landscaping then come

up with a strategy for fulfilling your dreams

(within your budget and timeline), staging

the completion of the project over a period

of time if this works best for you.

For the complete landscaping package

call Aaron today on 021 542 402 or email

landscapeyouroutdoorspace@gmail.com

and check out www.theoutdoorspace.

co.nz. He is only too happy to chat to you

about your options and provide a free

quote.

Remember: you need to book very soon to

have the work completed before Christmas.

Summer is just around

the corner... So its a great

time to start thinking

about your new lawn.

Give us a call and we can come

and give you a free quotation!

Landscaping and garden

supplies close by

The rush is on to get the compost and

mulch over the garden before the growing

season is fully upon us.

We have seen blossoms come and go

with early fruiters now showing fresh green

leaves and fruit beginning to form. Applying

fertiliser and compost will support these

trees and other plants in the garden while

mulching will help keep moisture in, over

the hotter months ahead.

Selwyn’s leading landscape and garden

suppliers, Intelligro have a great selection

of fertilisers and an organic compost that

will nourish your plants and create a better

growing and fruiting environment, while

their Vege Garden Mix will add nutrients

for a higher vegetable yield. The compost

is produced by Intelligro using materials

sourced locally, with no green waste or soil

added.

“It’s easy to grow fresh, tasty, flavoursome

vegetables,” says Gemma from Intelligro.

Intelligro are retail and commercial

suppliers of barks, chips, pebbles, screened

soil, mulches, potting and growing mixes,

and garden tools. If buying a Christmas gift

for a keen gardener, you might like to call

into Intelligro to check out their range or

purchase a gift voucher.

Whether you want a bag of compost,

bulk scoop in the trailer or the truck filled

up, the team at Intelligro can help. They

have trailers for hire allowing you to collect

enough for the garden in one or a couple

of trips and with them just down the road

from Rolleston are nice and handy for

many people in the district.

If landscaping or construction work is

underway at your house, Intelligro have

supplies like builders’ mix or crusher dust.

Their AP40 packs down hard, providing

a firm base for paths and driveways.

Commercial landscapers can also secure

specialist products like Bio Filter, Swale

and Drainage mixes, Structural Soil Mix

and a range of specialty growing mixes at

Intelligro with their laboratory technician

available to organise production of specialty

mixes to meet architectural and engineer

required specifications.

If you need supplies delivered, phone

03 3479 415. The experts at Intelligro

are always available to help and provide

landscaping and gardening advice.

You can also order on-line at www.igro.

co.nz and join the VIP club to receive regular

newsletters on gardening, landscaping,

product information and monthly specials,

with more tips and updates available on

Intelligro’s Facebook page.
