PHOTOGENIC: Model-in-waiting Hank with Dogwatch manager Pam Howard.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HANK THE border collie cross

is looking for a new home.

And if he gets one, the twoyear-old

just might feature in

Dogwatch Sanctuary Trust’s

calendar – but not until 2019.

The trust’s 2018 calendars are

now on sale, featuring rescued

dogs which have been rehomed.

Hank, a bright, lovely and

playful animal, according to

trust manager Pam Howard,

has been without a home since

October.

Mrs Howard said many people

had wanted to adopt Hank,

but so far the right match hadn’t

been found.

Hank had been at the city

council pound before arriving at

the trust, and had some “quirks”

she said.

She described Hank as

“resource guarder” – a dog

that growls and snarls at other

animals and people to stay away

from an object it might be

guarding.

“He just needs an owner that

understands when dogs have

quirks you work with them and

you don’t set them up to fail,”

Mrs Howard said.

camping

grounds

reopened

in time for

holidays

POPULAR camping spots,

damaged in the floods that raged

across Selwyn earlier this year,

have re-opened in the nick of

time for the holidays.

Coes Ford and Chamberlains

Ford are back up and running

after the Selwyn River burst

its banks with a peak flow of

697 cumecs, ripping through

both camping grounds and

damaging nearly everything in

its path.

Unsafe river fords were

closed, children were sent home

from school and properties in

Leeston flooded as wet weather

lashed the district earlier this

year.

District council reserves

officer Chris Burke said the

camping grounds were in a

sorry state and required an

incredible amount of work and

perseverance over the last five

months.

“We are really pleased to have

these two important camping

grounds ready for the public to

enjoy,” Mr Burke said.

COMMUNITY NEWS

I’M A bit of a dog sort of person.

Others might say I’m a dog of a bloke,

and if they do, I’d probably take it as a

compliment.

That’s why I’ve featured the 2018

Dogwatch calendar in today’s paper.

The calendar is a fundraiser for this great organisation and

the canines which feature in it are ones that they have rescued

and rehomed.

The system works like this: The dogs which end up in council

pounds have seven days to be collected. The pounds then have

the unenviable job of giving them the chop or rehoming them.

This is where Dogwatch comes in. If there’s room, unwanted

dogs are taken in and then the search for a suitable home begins.

Hank, who features on page 1, has been at Dogwatch since late

October. He has a few quirks but otherwise is a lovely dog, as

most border collies are.

Photographer Martin Hunter said he played ball for the pic.

It would be nice for Hank to have a home.

Give Dogwatch a call on 981 4708.

Also, if you’re a bit confused by our masthead today –

Nor’West News, Western News, Selwyn Times – it’s because we’ve

rolled three of our community newspapers into one.

It happens at this time of the year.

But our stand alone communities will be back in your letter

boxes on Tuesday, January 9.

Santa letters thrill pre-schoolers

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

CHILDREN across Canterbury

received a Christmas surprise in

the mail – a personalised letter

from a special man in a big red

suit.

Letters from Santa Claus

have travelled all the way from

the North Pole to children in

Canterbury in response to the

children’s wish list requests.

The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool

and Nursery based in West Melton

was one of many pre-schools

and primary schools in New

Zealand to receive the letters.

The pre-school’s inventors,

adventure and navigator classrooms

had their Santa letters

handed out to them at their

Christmas concert recently.

With a bit of help from New

Zealand Post, Santa sent 73,000

letters to children in 1102

schools and early childhood

education centres across the

country.

The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool

and Nursery owner Tracy Summerfield

said the children were

“blown away” and appreciated

the gesture from NZ Post.

She said the opportunity for

children to write their letters to

Santa was great for their literacy

skills.

Hatchimals, dolls, toy

tractors, trucks, racing cars

and rugby-themed toys were

popular requests made to

Santa by children at the preschool.

LOL Surprise Dolls,

Baby Alive Dolls, Nerf guns and

TV character toys from the films

Frozen and PAW Patrol were

common requests from children

nationwide.

But as Santa reminded the

children in his letter: “Christmas

is more than just about presents.

It’s about celebrating with your

friends and family.”

NZ Post has been helping letters

get to and from Santa for the

past 19 years.

A NZ Post spokeswoman

said it wanted to bring joy

to people at Christmas and

help keep the magic of Santa

alive.

“Receiving a letter from Santa

is a magical moment for a child

and being a postal business we

can play a role in facilitating that

moment,” she said.

Wind and

falling

branch

cause

of fire

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SEVERE WIND and a falling

branch caused a powerpole to

catch fire in Leeston last week.

The Leeston Volunteer Fire

Brigade was called out to the

fire at Lochheads Rd at about

4.30pm last Tuesday.

Chief fire officer Lloyd

Clausen said a severe southerly

wind change caused a branch

to break off a tree which fell

across powerlines and caught

fire.

The branch then fell to the

ground causing a small grass

fire which burnt back towards

the base of the pole.

Mr Clausen said while

the power pole wasn’t badly

damaged, it was replaced by an

Orion contractor.

The replacement of the pole

briefly caused a power outage

along the road.

Doggone good calendars

•From page 1

Hank is one of 12 dogs the

trust is currently trying to

rehome.

In a bid to continue rehoming

abandoned dogs, the trust has

teamed up with Community

Energy Action to create the 2018

calendar.

The calendar’s message this

year focuses on raising awareness

for the rescuing and re-homing

of abandoned dogs and educate

people about energy efficiency.

“It is a combined effort that

has gone down very well. Some

dogs just do not cope with cold

weather,” Mrs Howard said.

The trust has been producing

calendars since about 2011.

Funds raised go towards the

operation of the rescue centre.

“We have always had huge

support from the community but

this year we were sponsored by

CEA. They have done a fantastic

job,” Mrs Howard said.

Dogwatch is a charitable trust

which rescues and re-homes dogs

and puppies which have ended

up in the Christchurch, Selwyn

and Waimakariri pounds.

After a seven day holding

period the council becomes the

legal owner and either re-homes

the dog or puts it down.

If no one claims the dogs,

Dogwatch is contacted and if it

has kennel space dogs are taken

into its care.

•Calendars are available for

purchase online at www.

cea.co.nz/dogs or from

Dogwatch Sanctuary Trust

at its adoption centre on 230

Dyers Rd and the CEA at 299

Tuam St.

TREASURED: Gus (above),

Micah (left), as well as Honey

and Cruise will feature in the

calendar next year.

Selling vehicles on the

roadside still popular

In spite of city council plan to ban it

TEN PRIVATELY-owned vehicles were

parked up for sale on Riccarton Rd

between Wharenui and Ilam Rds

last week.

But in March, when the city

council’s new Traffic and Parking

Bylaw comes into force, the owners

of these vehicles will be breaking

the law.

Under the new bylaw, a person

must not stop, stand or park a

vehicle on any road or parking place to

offer it for sale, unless it is being used for

day-to-day travel.

Helen Beaumont said on some streets,

it created hazards and distractions.

“Drivers have been seen making

risky manoeuvres, such as

U-turns, in order to get a better view

or to park alongside the cars for sale.”

AA senior policy analyst Mark

Stockdale said, if implemented,

the city council should focus its

enforcement on the busy streets where

there was a risk.

“Car sales businesses shouldn’t be using

public parks to sell cars for profit.”

Community centre almost

ready for move to Shirley

• By Julia Evans

MACFARLANE PARK is one step closer

to becoming the transitional St Albans

Community Centre building’s new home.

The plan to move the building from

Colombo St to the Shirley park was

finalised at an extraordinary Papanui-

Innes Community Board meeting this

month.

However, according to a city council

staff report, resource consent still needs

to be granted and the park’s classification

changed.

“Council staff will seek to change the

reserve classification from Recreation

Reserve to Local Purpose (Community

Building) Reserve; there is a process to

follow as outlined within the Reserves Act

1977, and the outcome is not able to be

pre-determined,” the report said.

If consent is granted but the

classification is not changed, the

SHIFTING: The

transitional

St Albans

Community

Centre

building is set

to be moved

to MacFarlane

Park for

community

use.

GEOFF SLOAN

building would have to be removed from

MacFarlane Park in 2021.

It will take between two to eight months

to move the building, depending on how

quickly the consent is issued.

The building has served as the St Albans

Community Centre since the February

22, 2011, earthquake put the original

centre out of action.

But with the new St Albans centre

rebuild about to start, the building will get

another lease of life, replacing the Shirley

Community Trust’s facility.

As well as relocating the building, new

paths, a park bench and a small car park

with a cycle stand will be installed.

The building has been gifted to the city

council by the Lions International Club at

a cost of $255,000.

The city council approved $125,000 at

the start of last month towards moving

the building.

subsided. We cleaned all of the

fences – just for the area to be reflooded

the coming months,” he said.

The district council also

up flattened shrubs.

At the Chamberlains Old

was removed, shingle driveways

were rebased and graded.

Mr Burke said the current

“We cleaned out the toilet

checked the stability of all of the

The NZ Army also pitched in

at Chamberlains, by providing

SUMMER FUN AND HOLIDAY GUIDE

Fun in the water this summer

There are some great places to swim

and places for a cool dip may be found in

the:

• Selwyn River at Coes Ford, Chamberlain’s

Ford, Whitecliffs and Glentunnel.

• Waimakariri River, a fast flowing river

so avoid the main channels especially when

the river is high, looking instead for a

quieter flowing area.

• The high country lakes, which may offer

the opportunity for a quick albeit cold dip.

(Check Ecan’s Facebook page: www.

facebook.com/canterburyrecwater for

water quality.)

Bays and Beaches ideal for a great day out

• Akaroa – a tidal beach in town, at

Children’s Bay (a short walk away), and

Sumner through to Waikuku are great for

swimming and surfing when the surf is on.

The coolest

place in Selwyn

this summer!

For the kids

There’s something for all ages, including toddlers’ pool, leisure pool with lazy river, and fun lanes in the

main pool. Inflatable play equipment will be available each day throughout the holidays.

For grown-ups

Join the kids in the leisure pool, swim lengths in the main pool, exercise in the hydrotherapy pool, or

SUMMER FUN AND HOLIDAY GUIDE

Fun trips to do in a day

Selwyn stretches south to the Rakaia River, north

to the Waimakariri River and west to the mountains,

providing interesting places to explore. Some are

well-known, others almost forgotten.

Arthur’s Pass – Short walks through

the township take in authentic baches, a

quaint chapel and beech forest. There are

also tramping tracks taking a few hours

to several days. Look out for curious Keas.

They peck at cars and steal what they can,

and resist the temptation to feed them as

this threatens their survival.

Glentunnel – Many townships have

domains ideal for sport and a picnic like

Glentunnel. Check out the town’s historic

buildings like the 1886 octagonal library

built from bricks produced in the local kiln

and museum (open every Sunday from

1-4pm).

Hororata – A town with history, you can

visit Coton’s Cottage (built in 1864) on fine

Sunday afternoons while a little out of town

the earthquake damaged, 1911 St John’s

Church is a fine example of a local volcanic

stone building.

Coleridge Township – Originating as a

result of the construction of the Coleridge

Power Station, which opened in 1914 and

still provides power to Christchurch, this

sleepy holiday town sits on the banks of

the Rakaia River, near to Lake Coleridge.

It has botanical easy walks and

spacious picnic areas.

Lake Ellesmere (Te

Waihora) – This lake

originally covered much of

its surrounding farmland,

explaining Greenpark and

Lincoln’s good soil. There are

a number of access points for

boating, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking,

jet-skiing, eeling, bird watching and

duck shooting (in season). Driving

along Kaitorete Spit for views across

the lake and out to sea. Pack a fishing

rod and picnic for an enjoyable and

relaxing day out.

Banks Peninsula – Lyttelton’s food

establishments vary in their cuisine and

include healthy options. The harbour

is ideal for boating and the many bays

ideal for swimming and picnics.

Orton Bradley Park is great for

large groups. Stroll through the park’s

Rhododendron garden, around its historic

buildings, or up the hill. A small charge

applies for day visits and camping.

Kaituna Valley has an intimate and

sheltered domain with a short walk

along a babbling brook. Stop at the

1934 St Kentigern’s Anglican Church, built

from reinforced concrete with a Kaituna

stone façade and Oamaru stone faced

windows.
