Moncks Bay. He was heading

back to work the following

day.

So the afternoon out was one

last hurrah on his holiday

break.

“You’ve just got to spend

summer around the water, it

wouldn’t be right otherwise,” he

said.

Mr Brown’s twin daughters,

Jaz and Montana, 14, enjoyed

the swim. “It’s good for the girls.

The water is really good for

them,” he said.

Jaz seemed a bit of a water

baby, but the cool temperature

meant it took a little more

convincing before Montana hit

the water.

In fact, Mr Brown had to

throw her in.

“You’re going in, don’t worry,”

he said as she went in with a

great splash.

Fortunately for Montana and

Jaz, there was one tradition that

they could look forward to after

a day in the sun.

“There’s nothing like coming

down here and we always get a

big ice cream on the way home,”

Mr Brown said.

Weedons

residents

to help

fight

quarry

plan

• By Emily O’Connell

WEEDONS residents are backing

their Templeton neighbours in a

bid to stop plans for a new quarry

development.

Two weeks ago, Fulton Hogan

put forward a plan for a quarry

on a 170ha section of land on

Dawsons, Curraghs and Jones

Rds which borders Weedons and

Templeton.

More than 200 people gathered

in St Saviour’s Anglican Church

on Kirk Rd on Wednesday to

discuss the proposal.

Weedons Residents’ Association

secretary Gary Doyle said

the group will be supporting its

Templeton neighbours as much

as it can. “All we can do is try and

fight it as well,” he said.

Mr Doyle said traffic is going to

be a major problem for the area.

“Maddisons Rd and Jones Rd

are not suitable for a lot of heavy

traffic, they’re not wide enough,”

he said.

Templeton Residents’ Association

chairman Garry Kilday said

Wednesday’s meeting was very

successful. •Turn to page 6

from the editor’s desk

WEEDONS RESIDENTS have responded

to their Christchurch city neighbours and

weighed in on the battle over another quarry

plan (see page 1).

The quarry is in the Selwyn District but

the people who will be affected most by any

potential dust are in Templeton – Christchurch city turf.

The Selwyn District Council and Environment Canterbury will

sign off consents, which means Templeton people will desperately

need help from their Weedons neighbours. At this point they are

ready to help.

Agreement ends

saga over community hall

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Douglas

Marshall

CONCERNS Sheffield residents

could lose their community hall

have been put to rest.

While the ownership of the

Sheffield Community Hall is to

be legally transferred over to the

district council, it has assured

residents if it was to

ever sell the building,

it will be offered

back to the community

first.

It means muchneeded

earthquake

repairs for the hall

are able to get under

way by the district

council without the risk of the

hall being sold off in the future.

It comes after the Sheffield-

Waddington Community Committee

were told by the district

council in October if it did not

sign over full ownership of the

hall, funding for the repairs

would be cut.

The issue was due to the

ownership of the hall being

under the name of the Sheffield

Community Hall Incorporated

Society which legally no longer

exists due to it being removed

RESOLVED: The Sheffield community have been reassured

they will not lose their community hall. ​

from the Register of Societies in

2000 because of inactivity.

But the community committee

has since agreed to the

re-establishment of the incorporated

society and will transfer

the hall to the district council at

a notional $1.

The ownership transfer is

likely to be completed within

the next two months, a district

council spokesman told Selwyn

Times.

In a letter to Sheffield residents,

the district council’s property

and commercial manager

Douglas Marshall said a concern

in the community the hall could

be sold was valid but easily allayed.

Under the Local Government

Act 2002 and Public Works Act

1981 if a public authority sells

a property such as a hall or associated

land it must first offer

back the property to the previous

owner.

“Accordingly the district council

would have to offer back the

hall to the Sheffield community

and would do so for the same

price as the district council paid

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 3 MARCH 2018

being a notional $1,” he said.

Nearly $300,000 was approved

by the district council in March

last year to go towards seismic

strengthening of the hall.

A district council spokesman

said a building consent is likely

to be issued early next month so

work on the hall is yet to begin.

It is expected the hall will be

completed by June.

Community committee chairwoman

Val McKenzie said she is

happy about the outcome.

But former mayor Bill Woods,

who was involved in the issue,

said the district council originally

tried to frighten people into

agreeing handing over the hall

when they didn’t need to.

“If they had just gone ahead

and issued a building consent

the hall would be finished now.

Then the ownership of the hall

was a separate issue all together,”

he said.

Councillors give their big plans

District councillors have outlined

their top priorities for 2018. Georgia

O’Connor-Harding reports

A NEW health hub and town

centre for Rolleston are key

priorities for the district council

this year.

Selwyn Times asked district

councillors what the most

important issues were districtwide

and in their wards.

District councillors Pat

McEvedy and Grant Miller

are both working to get the

health hub up and running in

Rolleston.

Cr McEvedy said he wants

to “keep pushing along” the

project.

“I think that is a Selwynwide

project that will benefit

everybody,” he said.

The health hub is in the district

council’s Annual Plan and aims

to improve access to healthcare

and social services for Selwyn

residents.

Cr Miller said it is essential

that a growing area like Selwyn

has enough medical and social

services to meet the needs of

residents.

“I am pretty confident we are

going to get it over the line,” he

said.

Cr Miller said it is likely the

health hub will be operating

in 2019. This year the district

council will be working on the

design, securing tenants and a

business case.

Meanwhile, district councillor

Craig Watson is calling for work

to get under way on building a

new town square in Rolleston.

It is his bid to put a “heart” into

Selwyn, he said.

“Rolleston now has become

the centre of Selwyn as far as

population is concerned and we

don’t have a town centre,” he

said.

His views are backed by

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall

who said it is critical the

Rolleston town centre master

plan is up and running.

Cr Watson said there are few

places in the last 20-30 years

which have had the opportunity

to build a town centre and it is

important they get it right.

“We don’t want it to be a

SHOT-CALLERS: Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall and district councillors Craig Watson, John

Morten, Pat McEvedy, Murray Lemon and Grant Miller outline their plans for the year.

PRIORITY: The Rolleston town centre master plan is a priority

for district councillors this year.

concrete jungle. We also don’t

want an artistic eyesore that is

going to be a blot . . . for the next

100 years,” he said.

A master plan for the Rolleston

town centre was adopted by the

district council in 2014, with

the new library and community

centre set to be the first elements

built this year.

But Cr Watson said there

needs to be more focus on

community spaces, rather than

the library.

Key focuses in the

Malvern Ward included road

maintenance and continuing

to upgrade narrow roads which

are heavily used by trucks and

tankers, district councillor John

Morten said.

He said any road that is a main

thoroughfare to the Fonterra

factory in Darfield is a concern –

including Telegraph and Leaches

Rds.

Long-term, Cr Morten wants

a reticulated sewage system to

be installed in Darfield at a cost

affordable to residents.

for the year

From an Ellesmere point-ofview,

Cr McEvedy would like

to see the Doyleston-Leeston

Cycleway completed this year.

District councillor Murray

Lemon said it is important

business opportunities are

created throughout the entire

Selwyn district.

In the Springs ward, a key

priority for Cr Lyall is ensuring

funding remains in the Long

Term Plan 2018-2028 for a new

hall and community centre in

Prebbleton.

Consultation on the Long

Term Plan will start this year.

Cr Lyall said money also

needs to be spent on improving

intersections, roundabouts and

traffic lights in the Prebbleton

area, and funding also needs to

be established for the Lincoln

town centre plan.

Cr Miller said he would like

to see car parking improved in

Lincoln before further work on

the town plan begins.

Lincoln businesses are worried

about the removal of 75 car

parks on Gerald St which was

approved as part of the plan.

He said he would also like to

see the $206 million research

centre at Lincoln University up

and running.

SELWYN-WIDE NEED: The Rolleston health hub aims to

improve access to healthcare and social services in Selwyn.

Cr Miller is also looking

forward to the completion of

the new Tai Tapu Community

Centre in June and the new

skate park next to the Lincoln

Event Centre. But he said he

will be looking at more recreation

spaces.

He said plans are under way

to provide further public toilets

in Springston and Tai Tapu as

part of the new community

centre development in Rhodes

Park.

Cr Miller said a renovation

plan for the existing toilets by

Liffey Domain is in place this

year.

Residents get say

over bus service

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RESIDENTS ARE being told

if they want a bus service, they

need to use it.

It comes as public transport

advocate Bus Go Canterbury

survey residents if they would

like a bus service from Ellesmere

to Christchurch.

Bus Go co-founder Nick Stoneman

said since the Ellesmere survey

was launched last week, it has

gone “completely utterly nuts”

receiving 80 responses so far.

“It has been 21 years since

Leeston had a service. Southbridge

has probably been the

same length of time. Dunsandel

hasn’t had a service since 2001.

That is what prompted it,” he

said.

Mr Stoneman said if the service

is successful it will likely encompass

Leeston, Southbridge and

Dunsandel.

The group is also surveying

West Melton and Darfield on a

bus service to Christchurch.

Red Bus stopped operating the

Darfield to Christchurch service

in December due to increased

costs and falling patronage.

The Darfield survey aims to

find an alternative solution to the

ceased bus service.

Red Bus chief executive Paul

McNoe said he does not know

whether the West Melton and

Darfield bus services would be

viable.

“I haven’t seen their proposal

at this stage . . . we have certainly

said if we ran a trial it would be

a short-term trial and if there

wasn’t the support it would come

to an end,” he said.

Bus Go will meet with Red Bus

next week over the West Melton

and Darfield surveys.

Bus company Go Bus South

Island operations director Nigel

Piper said a detailed business

case would be required.

Weedons residents to fight quarry plan

•From page 1

Said Mr Kilday: “We had an

awesome turn out. It was an emotive

session because there were

people there who are so badly

affected.”

Mr Kilday said the association

is now creating an action group

from people who

attended the

meeting.

“The majority [of

people] who were

there are going to

be in this group.

Mark

Alexander

Nobody wants this

thing [the quarry]

where it is,” he said.

Mr Kilday said

the group will be

placing signs to

protest the quarry

on houses and in

different spots in

Templeton.

He said a concern

the group has

other than the

health risks is whether there will

be public consultation on the

resource consent application.

“Environment Canterbury

and the Selwyn District Council

will meet to decide whether the

resource consent will be decided

in private or whether public

participation is permitted,”

Mr Kilday said.

Selwyn district councillor

Mark Alexander agreed with Mr

Doyle that traffic could be an

issue.

But he doubted dust from the

quarry would be.

“I would say based on the new

Rolleston quarry’s operation,

dust should not be an issue as any

new consents should not allow

any dust to cross the quarry’s

boundaries,” he said.

In a letter sent to residents

near the proposed quarry, Fulton

Hogan said it would be there for

25 to 40 years.

“We see this location as being

suitable because the site has few

neighbours and is close to State

Highway 1.”

Mr Alexander had a suggestion

for the association’s group:

“My advice is to form a new,

separate, incorporated society

to submit against these consent

spend $150,000 to get reasonable

conditions on the consent,” he

said.

Fulton Hogan said it has

started seeking feedback from

neighbours and community

groups.

The feedback will be

“considered in how we develop

those plans further along with

any consent applications that we

make later in the year,” Fulton

Hogan said in a statement

yesterday.

It also said the quarry will

be carried out to the “highest

standards of regulatory

compliance.”

“Especially the health and

safety of both our staff and the

public and a strong duty of care

for our environment.”

Mr Kilday said they are hoping

to have another public meeting in

the next few weeks.

SOME PEOPLE will

write about the loss of

water races and the effect

on the wildlife. I have an

alternative perspective that

many do not consider.

Water races were introduced

to the Canterbury

Plains that lacked reliable

flowing streams to enable

stock to be farmed on the

parched land in summer.

The water races served a

dual purpose and that was

to provide an alternative

means of household water

to supplement the capture

of rain water in areas

where the underground

water table was inaccessible

such as Darfield.

Most houses that were

supplied with race water

had a third tap in the

kitchen for drinking water

fed from a tank that collected

the rain water.

Before the water races,

drains were dug to ensure

that settlements were not

flooded in the winter or in

times of excessive rain due

to roads being constructed

with the crown of the road

being higher than the land

alongside.

With the construction of

the water races sometimes

existing drains were

utilised to carry the water,

especially in the townships,

so they served to

carry both the water race

and stormwater.

As time progressed, the

water races became a habitat

for creatures that either

lived in the water or relied

on the availability of access

to water for sustainability.

In the towns some people

beautified the races by

maintaining the edges and

some even planted flowers

or special grasses.

Eventually potable water

supplies became available

and the need for water

races in the towns became

obsolete.

With reliable water

supplies, the water races

were closed off. This meant

that more water was available

to a system that was

stretched in the summer

months to supply water

for stock as originally

intended with some stormwater

being disposed of by

soak pits where there was a

low water table.

Turning off the water in

these races left a channel

where the water used to

run, resulting in a call

from the residents to fill

them in.

Filling in a race that was

not a dual purpose one was

not a problem, but there

were many that provided

drainage in the wet season

and only carried water

when the rainfall was

more than the land could

absorb.

If there happened to be

a few dry seasons in a row

the drain would appear

to be not needed and the

original reason for it being

there in the first place was

forgotten.

Calls would be made

to have this particular

channel filled in as it now

served no purpose.

This is what happened

on Bealey Rd in Hororata.

After the channel was

filled in there was no apparent

problem as the wet

seasons were not sufficient

to cause major flooding.

How wrong could this

thinking be; the area

along Bealey Rd has been

inundated with surface

water that has nowhere to

go due to the drain being

filled and no alternative

provided to remove the

excess water.

The district council

has lost several legal

proceedings and spent

well over $80,000 and

still the two properties

on the corner of Hawkins

and Bealey Rd flood in

severe wet conditions and

the houses fronting onto

Bealey Rd have excess

water problems with septic

tanks and stormwater.

None of this flooding

took place when the

drain along Bealey Rd

was operational. Yet

the district council still

continues to ignore this

situation.

Upper South Island travel guide

PLAN YOUR JOURNEY – PICTON TO CHRISTCHURCH

State Highway 1 (SH1) north of Kaikōura opened to daytime traffic

in December, restoring the coastal highway link from Picton to Christchurch.

The re-opening of SH1 gives people two viable options for travel around the

upper South Island, with the alternate route (via state highways 63, 6, 65 and 7

through Lewis Pass) remaining a reliable 24/7 option.

IMPORTANT BEFORE YOU TRAVEL

Check routes are open and

get estimated travel times.

For real-time travel information

visit www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c

or freephone 0800 4 HIGHWAYS

(0800 44 44 49).

Make sure you allow enough time for your journey,

whichever route you chose. Unexpected events, such as a crash,

high volumes of traffic, ongoing wet weather or seismic activity,

can cause delays. Ongoing roadworks and reduced speed limits

in places mean that it won’t be possible for you to make up time.

Be prepared with food, water and a fully charged cell phone.

Do not rely on your GPS or Google Maps -

things can change at short notice.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON SH1

Parts of the road will still be under construction, so there will be some

unsealed sections, lane closures with Stop/Go controls and speed restrictions.

There will be night closures (8.30pm – 7am) north of Kaikōura between

Clarence and Mangamaunu, and between Goose Bay and Peketa in the south.

Closure points will be monitored 24/7.

Consider road closure hours before starting your trip and leave enough

time to be clear of these sections so you can continue your journey.

The opening hours are subject to adverse weather and seismic activity. If there

is a lot of rain or another significant event, we may have to close the road for

short periods of time.

It’s important to remember the safety of those using the highway, and

working on it, will always be our top priority.

WORK HAS RAMPED UP IN JANUARY

CHRISTCHURCH

Following the road opening on 15 December, most of the work sites closed down to help

with traffic flow over the busy Christmas period.

The work programme is now back in full delivery which will have a significant effect

on the coastal corridor.

NZ Transport Agency Journey Manager Tresca Forrester says ‘It’s a balancing act to

schedule the reinstatement work to have a minimal effect on travel time while also

ensuring the work gets done. Drivers should now expect it to take at least 5 ½ to 6 hours

to drive between Picton and Christchurch on SH1 but should allow plenty of extra time

in case of delays. Check www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c for the latest information.’

* Conditions can

change any time, so it

is important to check the

current status at least two hours

before you travel and at key route

decision points.

Visit www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c

or freephone

0800 4 HIGHWAYS

(0800 44 44 49)

BE ROAD COURTEOUS

• No stopping on SH1 within the closure areas

outside of designated stop bays.

• Be patient and cautious. Road conditions

will be unfamiliar to many drivers,

so a little bit of patience will go a long way.

• Follow all traffic signs and any instruction

given by road crew.

• Obey speed limits to keep all road users safe.

• Stay focused around rail lines. Expect trains

at any time.

• Keep fresh by taking breaks and supporting

communities on the route.

Greendale site

BE A GOOD

NEIGHBOUR

AN OPEN day and picnic

will be held to celebrate

the restoration of a

national heritage site in

Greendale.

The Greendale Community

Trust has completed

the first stage of the restoration

of the TW Adams

Arboretum in Adams Rd

with the site now accessible

to the public.

The arboretum is a

significant property which

saw the first planting of a

tree by Thomas William

Adams in 1866.

Mr Adams went on to

collect seeds from around

the world and trial many

species in the arboretum.

He is largely responsible

for the establishment of

pinus radiata as a plantation

tree in New Zealand.

Trust secretary Ruth

Warren said the heritage

site is a beautiful place

all year round with many

species of trees.

Mayor Sam Broughton

will officially unveil new

signage at the open day on

Thomas William Adams

Sunday. The signage not

only tells the history of

the site, but provides illustrated

information about

many of the trees.

The trust’s plans for

stage 2 and 3 of the arboretum

include a walkway

through the nursery block

and fields to the Greendale

Domain and along

to the Greendale church

where significant development

of the horse paddock

will include a labyrinth.

Mr Adams was one of

the first settlers in Greendale.

The remains of his cob

cottage on the arboretum

site he built on arrival in

1865 are still standing

today.

Mr Adams recognised

the need for shelter on the

plains and trialled many

species in the late 1880s to

determine those that grew

well in the Canterbury soil

and climate.

This resulted in the

establishment of pinus

radiata and the forestry

industry in New Zealand.

Mr Adam’s interest

in trees led to the

establishment of shelter

belts that have enhanced

many farms across the

plains.

He was responsible

for the establishment of

the New Zealand School

of Forestry and on his

death bequeathed the

arboretum to Canterbury

University and provided a

scholarship fund.

•The open day and picnic will be held on Sunday, noon, at TW Adams

Arboretum, Adams Rd Greendale. Residents are asked to take a picnic lunch

and rug to the site for the opening celebration.

Backyard Critters

Rain eases fire

risk in region

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 largest spiders

around my backyard in Lincoln

is the sheet-web spider of the

genus cambridgea, a genus that

comprises 31 New Zealand

endemic species.

Their webs are horizontal

structures that can be almost

a metre across, but have fine,

vertical trip lines that knock

down flying insects into the

web.

The spiders are nocturnal and

retreat into a cylindrical web

chamber during the day.

Cambridgea are commonly

found in shady habitats in

trees, but often blunder into

ITSY BITSY

SPIDER:

Cambridgea

spiders are

variable in size

but their long

legs can span

100mm. ​

Feared but harmless

hand basins or baths. They are

variable in size but their long

legs can span 100mm.

This combined with the large,

pale abdomen and large fangs

can make these spiders look

imposing.

They are, however, quite

harmless.

RECENT RAIN has eased the

fire risk across the district.

But authorities say it will only

take a few hot nor’westerly days

to push it up again.

“There is still a lot of summer

to go and conditions can change

quickly,’’ said Darrin Woods,

Christchurch/Selwyn rural fire

district principal rural fire officer.

He said if the weather returns

to as it was before Christmas,

when temperatures were routinely

in the high-20s and early

30s, the countryside will very

quickly dry out, escalating the

fire risk.

“We’re also asking that on

hot days, particularly when it’s

windy, people take extreme care

when doing any activities that

may produce sparks such as

grinding, welding or even mowing

lawns on stony ground,’’ Mr

Woods said.

It is important people report

any fires or smoke to 111 immediately,

he said.

A restricted fire season has

been in place across Christchurch,

Selwyn, Hurunui and

Waimakariri districts since the

start of December. This means

people must apply for a permit if

they want to light a fire in open

air.

Anyone who lights a fire without

a permit can expect a visit

from Fire and Emergency New

Zealand.

It will extinguish any fire that

does not meet the conditions of

the restricted fire season.

To find out how to apply for a

fire permit, go to www.checkitsalright.nz.

If you don’t have access to the

website, call Fire and Emergency

New Zealand on 0800 658 628.

Mr Woods says Fire and

Emergency New Zealand is

constantly monitoring the

conditions and will consider

changes to the fire season status

if further forecast rain arrives

over the coming weeks and the

countryside continues to green

up.

Rolleston

cricketer

meets her idol

A DREAM came true for a

young cricket fan last week.

Rolleston resident Sophie

Forward, 7, joined captains

Kane Williamson and Sarfraz

Ahmed on the pitch for

the coin toss before the Black

Caps vs Pakistan match to

help decide the batting and

bowling order in Nelson.

Sophie attends West

Rolleston Primary School

and likes watching cricket

on the weekends and playing

after school.

She loves all sports and

hopes to become a teacher

when she is older.

“My favourite part was

getting to hand Kane Williamson

the coin, he is my

favourite cricketer,” she said.

ANZ head of sponsorship

Sue McGregor said Sophie

was one of 27 kids selected

to take part in the pivotal

pre-match moment during

this year’s summer of

SPORTS

cricket.

“We hope that connecting

young players with their

heroes will help inspire the

next generation of Kiwi

cricketers. There’s a magic

that happens when fans take

part in the match and meet

these great players. We try

to get these young cricketers

involved as much as we can,”

she said.

The ANZ coin toss activity

is part of its support for

cricket at all levels in New

Zealand.

ANZ is also giving keen

cricketers the chance to

share what help they need to

get on top of their game this

summer.

Whether it’s new gear, tips

from their heroes or just inspiration

– ANZ could make

it happen.

Applications are now

open at anzcricketworld.

Milligan,

Ransley

win 86s

• By Andrew King

PREBBLETON drivers Jack

Milligan and Jaden Ransley

won a race each in the latest

round of the Toyota 86

championship.

Milligan shot to the top of

the leader board in the championship

after winning the

opening race of the weekend

at Mike Pero Motorsport Park,

Ruapuna.

But it was his 15-year-old

friend, Ransley, who put on

a show. He showed great

speed in the first race to finish

fourth, before crossing the line

just behind title contender Michael

Scott in the second race.

He saved his best for last

with an uncontested win in

the third race, leading from

start to finish – his first win of

the series.

Ransley said it was one to

remember. “To not only get

my first race win, but my first

round win in front of all my

supporters and sponsors was

an amazing feeling,” he said.

Milligan is still battling

for the title, with two more

rounds to run. Round four

starts on Friday at Teretonga

Park, Invercargill.

something no one wants just after

Simon at Rolleston Diesel and Petrols,

your vehicle ensuring smooth motoring

in the year ahead.

Give him a call on

Jones Road Auto

Keeping an

eye on the tyres

and brakes is

important for

safety reasons and

as a requirement

of your motor

vehicle insurance,

especially now that

many vehicles only have annual Warrant

of Fitness checks.

Cooling systems, the anti-freeze and

windscreen wipers also need monitoring

while the electrical connections, bearings

and brakes on the boat trailer deserve a

look over as water can corrode these.

Jones Road Auto can take care of all

mechanical servicing and repairs along

with any tyre, WOF or auto electrical

needs. You will find them at 851 Jones

Road, phone 347 4020.

Laser Electrical

You are likely to

spend more evening

time in the garden

with outdoor lighting installed by Laser

Electrical. Indoors, a heat pump running

on cool will make summer more pleasant

helping you sleep through those hot

nights.

Now is also the time to prepare for

winter by having your heat pump

serviced or a new one installed, another

task that Laser Electrical can take care of.

If looking to upgrade your downlights

they can fit new LEDs. These use less

electricity and as the units are sealed,

insulation may be placed over top

(depending on the unit).

You can contact Laser Electrical

on 0800LASER4U, email Rolleston@

landmark alongside the Halswell

River since 1856 and during that

time has gained a reputation

is superb at ‘The Tap’

(Tai Tapu Hotel). There are

lots of menu options from light

lunches to hearty dinner meals,

including a good range of glutenfree,

ensuring there is something

for everyone. Remember too,

on Wednesdays there is a 2 for 1

burger special.

a successful day fishing or on the

golf course, or drown your sorrows

over the one that got away, there

are great beers, local wines and specialty

drinks. Share a platter or enjoy something

from their all-day menu. There are light

meals as well as a good selection of mains

like their pork belly, beer battered blue cod,

Akaroa salmon fillet and steak dishes. Finish

off with something sweet like Cheesecake or

one of the other delicious desserts.

‘The Tap’ will make your experience one

that is truly memorable so why not call

BACK TO SCHOOL 2018

Working

together for

a positive

school year

A positive attitude to learning is fundamental for laying down

the foundations for success throughout a child’s school years.

Fostering a supportive attitude to

education in the home, translates to

children being more enthusiastic about

attending school and making the most of

their learning experiences so they become

mature self-directed learners.

Being prepared for school supports

this. Wearing the correct clean and tidy

uniform, having the right equipment,

having established routines at home where

homework is regularly completed with bags

packed and lunches prepared the night

before, and arriving at school on time, are

all important. Such practises build positive

attitudes, while avoiding missing lessons

ensures a child acquires the underpinning

knowledge and skills essential for future

learning.

Encourage your child with praise not

pressure, helping them to develop problem

solving skills where they work things out

for themselves, in their play and school

work.

If unsure about any aspect of your child’s

time at school ask questions and encourage

your child to do the same.

Adopt a diplomatic approach. If your

child complains about any aspect of school

life, take time to learn the facts bringing any

concerns to the attention of their teacher to

ensure resolution so your child flourishes

and enjoys their time at school.

9,500 Learners on

the move again!

From Monday 29 January, over 9,500

Selwyn children will be travelling to school,

up from 8,000 from 2017!

Selwyn School Road Safety Co-ordinator

Stephanie Hautler is reminding everyone to

keep their eyes peeled for our young people

heading back to school by bus, bike, car,

scooter and on foot.

With the lovely summer weather it’s a

great opportunity to get active with your

child. Even if you are pushed for time

parking a block back from school so your

child can scoot or walk is good for them

their road safety skills and helps with

School travel safety tips:

• Be bright be seen, ask your school for

a safety vest.

• Tackle the routes together talking

about sneaky driveways and blind

corners.

• Get out and active together to reduce

• Wear your helmets, this goes for

ADVERTORIAL

Day 1 - 29 January 2018

We are a small rural primary school located on the outskirts of Christchurch for students in Years 1 to 8.

Established in 1868, we continue to have strong local community connections. This is reflected in our

logo and our Māori names for learning spaces. Whanau and the wider community are very supportive

and are regularly involved in the school.

Parents and caregivers choose Broadfield School for the rural aspect, family values, 21st Century teaching

and learning and because of our emphasis on developing Literacy, Numeracy and the Key Competencies.

At Broadfield our motto is “Dig Deep”. It stems from our Vision and relates to our

school Logo of the plough. We ‘dig deep’ to be our best in all we do. This is; in the

classroom, using the key competencies, living the school values and on the sports

field.

Students at Broadfield are encouraged to take healthy risks so they can reach

their full potential.

We are delighted to celebrate our 150th Jubilee in 2018. Please visit our website for more information.

New Zealand in the 21st century.

Lastly, there will be some significant

supported by the Office of the Chinese challenges, including physically and

Language Council International. During

A school with a

Sheffield School’s community

2018 school year ahead.

Sheffield School’s community are very

excited about the 2018 school year ahead.

A vibrant new addition to the school’s

entrance is the mural, the children designed

and created in 2017, under the expert

guidance of Vicky Peacock.

In 2018, the extremely successful ‘Agri-

Maths Programme’ will be continued,

authentically integrating the school’s rural

world with the children’s learning. The

Kapa Haka group will also be performing

at a variety of local community events

throughout the year.

The launch of the Sheffield P.E.A.K.

Learning Model in 2017 is set to be

embedded in 2018. This will ensure all

key stakeholders in the children’s learning

collaborate effectively through consistent

language to accelerate all of the school’s

learners.

Rolleston’s

1st school

Since opening in 1893, Rolleston’s oldest

school has grown from one large wooden

building and 46 students to a modern school

environment catering for the educational

needs of well over 800 students.

Two new purpose-built teaching spaces

were added to Rolleston School (Te Ahi

Kaiomako) in 2017 and an app allowing

parents and caregivers easy access to school

information.

With an ethos of striving, driving and

thriving students at Rolleston School

learn to become ‘express’ learners who are

engaged, resourceful, self-managed and

prepared to experiment and persist until

they achieve success.

New principal

for Windwhistle

School

At the close of 2017, the Windwhistle

School community farewelled their

Principal of seven years, Frances Nimmo.

The school’s new Principal, Bronwen

Seaward previously fulfilled a number of

teaching and management roles at Darfield

High School, and more recently at West

Melton Primary School.

The school’s role will increase in 2018

with the new students joining a happy

school community where individual

needs are recognised and met, and there

is considerable support from parents

and extended family, many of whom also

attended Windwhistle School.

After an amazing foundation year, welcoming new learners and

their whanau into Lemonwood Grove, the school looks forward

to its second year of establishment.

“Families are moving into Selwyn from around Canterbury, New Zealand

and across the globe leading to a diverse and unique school community

and culture,” says Principal, Sean Bailey.

Enrolment is expected to be close to 160 at the start of 2018 however,

during the year this figure is likely to rise due to the building activity in

Faringdon.

At Lemonwood Grove, the school’s curriculum is lived out through its

school wide values of Grit, Responsibility, Integrity and Thinking.

“It’s great to see our learners demonstrating these values when

collaborating and relating to others,” says Sean.

During the foundation year a number of school events and experiences

were held with outstanding support from the community. A number of

schools and organisations also visited Lemonwood Grove, interested in

how learners’ needs are met, and their curiosity and creativity sparked.

Lemonwood Grove is

fortunate to be part of a

‘Community of Learning’

where they work closely

with 11 neighbouring schools to

increase student achievement.

One new initiative for 2018 will be providing regular opportunities for

the school community to visit and learn about ‘why’, and what they do in

terms of teaching and learning.

To find out more about this awesome school, email Sarah at

office@lemonwoodgrove.school.nz to arrange a time to have a look

around.

Lemonwood Grove School will start back on Wednesday, 31 January, 2018

while the office will be open 9am-3pm on the 24th, 25th, 26th, 29th, and

30th January.

BACK TO SCHOOL 2018

Exciting changes for

Ellesmere College

Some exciting changes are

in store for the Ellesmere

College community this year.

At the end of 2017, the school farewelled

Gavin Kidd, a Principal who hugely

influenced the school during his time at

Ellesmere College with the introduction of

new innovations while gaining respect for

his quiet purposeful leadership.

First task for the Board of Trustees in

2018 is finding a new Principal who can

carry the school forward, a process that will

involve the whole school community.

Plans are also in place for a new building

at Ellesmere College with construction

expected to begin soon. As the new school

will be constructed on the fields, there will

be no disruption to student learning while

the football field and athletics tracks will

be moved so the sports programme is not

affected.

Ellesmere College continues to be

progressive, introducing new initiatives that

enhance teaching techniques and increase

effectiveness in the classroom through

exciting student learning opportunities.

Examples include the art exhibition held

last year, in which students exhibited the

work they had completed throughout the

year.

In 2018, special emphasis will be placed

on Years 7 to 10 so they are prepared for

their senior years ahead, building on the

good results that Year 11-13 students have

been achieving over the last few years.

Student well-being has also been a focus

and the school is part of the Grow Waitaha,

a Canterbury-wide initiative that aims to

improve individual student well-being. This

programme addresses bullying, resilience

techniques, anti-suicide work, and other

well-being initiatives. This is a benefit to the

whole community as it increases awareness

of positive well-being and becomes part of

daily life, leading to academic achievement.

Summer in your edible garden

Rachel Vogan guides you through what needs to be

done now to keep fresh produce flowing

AS THE warm months take hold,

gardeners should be reaping the rewards of

what was sown and planted months ago.

Many crops will be in ‘harvest mode’,

such as courgettes, potatoes, tomatoes,

beans, lettuce, brassicas, herbs and so many

more.

To keep long-term fruiting crops

(such as beans, tomatoes and courgettes)

producing, you need to keep picking the

Capsicum

crop. This stimulates more flowers, which

equal another round to harvest. For any

crops going in the ground this month, it is

vital to give the soil a boost with nutrients

and goodies before replanting. Once that is

done, soak the soil overnight and plant the

next day.

This limits stress on the new seedlings

and helps prevent transplant shock.

STRAWBERRIES

Maximise your harvest by giving plants a

once over now to remove any dead or tatty

leaves and to cut the runners off from the

main parent plant. Apply a side-dressing

of strawberry food (if you haven’t already)

and give the plants a deep watering at least

twice a week.

A top up of mulch or compost is a good

idea too, and refresh your layers of straw

especially if the birds have skived off with it

to make nests. The straw helps to keep the

berries clean and to avoid any mould issues

occurring if the berries sit directly on the

crop to eliminate any feathered residents

of the garden helping themselves to your

berries.

CHILLIES

A sunny, hot spot suits chillies best. Feed

them with tomato or strawberry food, a

type of fertiliser that promotes flowers

rather than leaves. While chillies and

capsicums are closely related, they differ a

little in how you look after them, especially

if you fancy some heat in your chillies.

Once the chillies are about finger length,

reduce the amount of water the plants get.

You may well feel mean, but if it is flavour

you are after this method works – less

moisture in the chillies helps intensify the

flavour. If you prefer more heat, water as

per usual.

Back to the

daily grind

For most of us, the summer holidays are done

and dusted and we are back to the reality of work

life. If you have spent a bit of time away from

home, your gardens will more than likely be ready

for a bit of TLC. Here are our top garden tasks to

help get your garden back into tip top shape.

Tie up your Tomatoes

If you haven’t done so already, stake up your

tomatoes to give them that extra support.

Remove any laterals

(side-ways growing

shoots) and any

excess leaves that

are accumulating at

the bottom of the

plant. This will help

to create more space

for airflow and light

to get in.

Veggie Gardens

Check your veggie beds regularly to ensure that you are

harvesting the produce as soon as it is ready. If your plants have

grown really fast and now have flowers and seeds on them, it is

time to pull them out. They have “gone to seed” typically due

to a lack of water, and won’t grow any produce now. Keep up

the water! Make sure you give them a good soak every few days

rather than a small watering daily. If your plants have been in

for a while now, it might pay to add some fertiliser or organic

matter to the soil to help keep the nutrient supply available for

them to sustain healthy growth.

General Gardening

Raise the height of your mower to

keep the lawns a bit longer.

Pull out or spray off the weeds as you

see them. They compete with your

plants for space, water and nutrients.

Keep safe in the garden. Wear

protective gear such as sunblock,

hats, sunglasses and gloves. Make

sure you wash your hands after you

are finished.

The Romance of Yesterday .... On a 971 m2 section A unique and exquisite property built during

the 1910’s still being in such a good condition is hard to come by in this area. Sited on a 971m2

section, this property showcases many character features such as delicate ceiling roses, ornate

hallway arches, leadlight windows and two ornate fireplaces. However this home is not all classic, it

offers a touch of present day vibrancy with its updated kitchen and modern unique bathroom.

If this wasn’t fantastic enough already, it’s location is wonderful too, as it is handy to public

transport and a quick stroll to Hornby Mall, making it a great home for families.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Researching when building new

If you are planning to have a new house

built at some time during the year now is

a good time to begin researching building

options, before the pressure of the year

ahead fully arrives. After the holiday

break, you are likely to be feeling relaxed

and refreshed so will have a clear mind to

consider the choices available.

If you still have to sort out your building

site, walk and drive around the various

towns and subdivisions and check out the

show home villages throughout the district

and beyond.

Show homes are great way

to start the search for ideas

and learn about potential

building companies. These

can be found at:

• Rolleston’s Faringdon

(Canterbury’s largest show

home village);

• West Melton’s Wilfield

subdivision;

• the Flemington and Te

Whāriki subdivisions in

Lincoln;

• Stirling Park at Prebbleton;

• Wigram Skies;

• Longhurst in Halswell;

• Prestons Park in

Marshlands; and

• the Sovereign Lakes and Silverstream

subdivisions at Kaiapoi.

Find out where each company builds

and whether they are active in the area you

are looking at building in.

Show homes are great way to start

the search.

A visit to the showrooms of building

supply companies will also be very helpful

in the task of identifying features you

would like in your home. Include in your

search: hardware, plumbing and cladding

suppliers and the Home Ideas centre in

Research helps identify the features you like.

Mandeville Street, along with Jennian

Homes’ Studio J Design Centre which

displays internal fit-out and exterior finish

alternatives.

Take photos, collect brochures and other

details, building a list of the features you

like. Keep samples and colour swatches

to allow you to match your décor. Your

dossier will be extremely handy when you

meet with a designer and seek quotes from

building companies. It will also mean that

quotes are more likely to be comparable

if you have established what you want in

your home. With a set price you will be in

a better position to budget and organise

any finance.

Building a new home is fun. It can also

be stressful. Conducting research before

you embark on the exercise and having a

clear idea of the features you want will go

a long way to minimising the stress so you

can enjoy the whole exercise.

Walk and drive around towns & subdivisions.

Visit supplier’s

showrooms to identify

the features you like.

REAA - Disclosure rules

when selling a home

Real estate advertisements are designed

to make every property look like a dream

buy. That’s why they gloss over the negative

aspects and linger on the good points,

wanting you to be drawn in by the sundrenched

location rather than be put off by

lack of garaging. It’s no crime to gloss over

a property’s quirks, but lying by omission

or design about more serious matters is not

allowed. If you do this when selling your

property you may be at risk of being sued by

the purchaser.

When you’re ready to sell your property

it’s a good idea to get legal advice about

your obligations before you sign an agency

agreement. Most of these agreements, which

set out the terms and conditions of your

contract with the real estate agent, require

you to confirm that you are unaware of any

undisclosed defects in the property and that

you haven’t withheld any information about

it.

As a seller, you must also confirm that your

property has all the necessary consents and

code compliance certificates for any building

work. Any outstanding consents, including

ones that involve any works at a neighbour’s

property, should be disclosed to the agent.

This is important for several reasons.

Licensed real estate agents have clear

obligations when it comes to disclosure. They

must not mislead a seller or a potential buyer,

or withhold any information. While it’s not

up to the agent to uncover any hidden defects

in a property, they must tell any prospective

buyers what they know.

Under the Real Estate Agents Act 2008,

if licensed real estate agents suspect that a

property may have a defect then they are

obliged to ask the seller about it, or advise

potential buyers of any risks. For example,

if a property is next door to a proposed

new development, or if it’s in an area that’s

been subject to flooding, the agent must tell

Selwyn Times

prospective buyers

rather than turning a

blind eye.

If your property

may be prone to

weathertightness

issues thanks to its

age or cladding,

then the agent may

have to disclose this

potential risk to

prospective buyers.

If it doesn’t have any

weathertightness

problems it may be

worth getting this confirmed in an expert

report by a qualified building inspector

who has professional indemnity insurance,

understands the strict legal requirements

of their role and carries out their work in

accordance with the New Zealand Property

Inspection Standard. This will help make the

sale process as efficient as possible.

If you know there are issues with

the property, whether it’s something

small like a garage door not working

properly, or a bigger deal like an

unconsented deck, it’s best to discuss

them with the agent you are working

with. They can help you decide how

to manage the problem, whether that

means fixing it, or disclosing it to

potential buyers. However, a licensed

real estate agent must not disclose any

problems with your property to buyers

without getting your consent first. If a

seller doesn’t agree on a disclosure, the agent

is required to stop working for them rather

than disclose any defects without consent.

These rules offer more protection to buyers

than the traditional attitude of ‘caveat emptor’

(buyer beware), which assumed that the seller

would always know more than the buyer and

any sale was at the buyer’s risk. However,

buyers should always do their own research

about a property before signing a sale and

purchase agreement. Buyers should also ask

the agent about anything they are concerned

about, no matter how trivial it may seem. It’s

far better to get an answer upfront than find

out when it’s too late.

Show homes

the ultimate way to shop around

Across the selwyn district, we are blessed with an

extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle, featuring all the

latest in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you ;will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get

a good idea of pricing, discover good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long-term returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check

out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.
