PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding FORMER Lincoln High School students have produced a Kiwiana flavour of potato chips that are being sold in supermarkets nationwide. It has taken two years for Courtney Jones, Hannah Page 4 Page 17 Crisp idea makes it to the end product Long, Sarah Freeman, Nilani Ekanayake, Owen Hill, Jordan Smyth, Tom Essenberg and Annabelle Wilkinson to get their hangi-flavoured chips to the supermarket shelves. “We wanted to hit that sort of Kiwiana flavour. Something that represented to us what New Zealand is like to us and what summer is like to us,” Miss Jones said. Timaru-based Heartland Potato Chips have produced the new limited edition product which is now on sale. Miss Jones, who is now studying at Canterbury University, said the flavour is nothing like she has ever tried before in a chip. Heartland general manager Charlotte Bowan said while the new flavour was difficult to define, she described the flavour as having a “smoky, meaty, vegetable taste.” •Turn to page 4 Residents’ views will be sought on putting chlorine in water • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding THE PUBLIC will have their say on whether Selwyn should have its water chlorinated or not. The district council’s water asset manager Murray England told Selwyn Times the option of universal chlorination across the district’s water supplies will go out for consultation in April. It will seek public opinion on the contentious issue as part of the Long Term Plan 2018-2028 consultation process. It comes after a decision was made last week for Christchurch’s water to be temporarily chlorinated to prevent the risk of it becoming contaminated. Christchurch’s city councillors voted to chlorinate its 56 pump stations after an assessment of underground well heads found some with cracked surrounds and inadequate seals. Mr England said every water supply in Selwyn has an approved Water Safety Plan which identifies potential risks to a water supply and has measures that are required to mitigate them. •Turn to page 5 WE REPORT THE FACTS! 15 new residents every week * 3000 residents now living here 1300 sections sold 1000 new homes built 200 homes currently under construction 14 FHN LIVE parks and reserves completed Faringdon’s numbers are growing.
