PHOTOGENIC: Model-in-waiting Hank with Dogwatch manager Pam Howard.<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

HANK THE border collie cross<br />

is looking for a new home.<br />

And if he gets one, the twoyear-old<br />

just might feature in<br />

Dogwatch Sanctuary Trust’s<br />

calendar – but not until 2019.<br />

The trust’s 2018 calendars are<br />

now on sale, featuring rescued<br />

dogs which have been rehomed.<br />

Hank, a bright, lovely and<br />

playful animal, according to<br />

trust manager Pam Howard,<br />

has been without a home since<br />

October.<br />

Mrs Howard said many people<br />

had wanted to adopt Hank,<br />

but so far the right match hadn’t<br />

been found.<br />

Hank had been at the city<br />

council pound before arriving at<br />

the trust, and had some “quirks”<br />

she said.<br />

She described Hank as<br />

“resource guarder” – a dog<br />

that growls and snarls at other<br />

Hank waits for his turn to be a calendar boy<br />

animals and people to stay away<br />

from an object it might be<br />

guarding.<br />

“He just needs an owner that<br />

understands when dogs have<br />

quirks you work with them and<br />

you don’t set them up to fail,”<br />

Mrs Howard said.<br />

camping<br />

grounds<br />

reopened<br />

in time for<br />

holidays<br />

POPULAR camping spots,<br />

damaged in the floods that raged<br />

across Selwyn earlier this year,<br />

have re-opened in the nick of<br />

time for the holidays.<br />

Coes Ford and Chamberlains<br />

Ford are back up and running<br />

after the Selwyn River burst<br />

its banks with a peak flow of<br />

697 cumecs, ripping through<br />

both camping grounds and<br />

damaging nearly everything in<br />

its path.<br />

Unsafe river fords were<br />

closed, children were sent home<br />

from school and properties in<br />

Leeston flooded as wet weather<br />

lashed the district earlier this<br />

year.<br />

District council reserves<br />

officer Chris Burke said the<br />

camping grounds were in a<br />

sorry state and required an<br />

incredible amount of work and<br />

perseverance over the last five<br />

months.<br />

“We are really pleased to have<br />

these two important camping<br />

grounds ready for the public to<br />

enjoy,” Mr Burke said.<br />

COMMUNITY NEWS<br />

I’M A bit of a dog sort of person.<br />

Others might say I’m a dog of a bloke,<br />

and if they do, I’d probably take it as a<br />

compliment.<br />

That’s why I’ve featured the 2018<br />

Dogwatch calendar in today’s paper.<br />

The calendar is a fundraiser for this great organisation and<br />

the canines which feature in it are ones that they have rescued<br />

and rehomed.<br />

The system works like this: The dogs which end up in council<br />

pounds have seven days to be collected. The pounds then have<br />

the unenviable job of giving them the chop or rehoming them.<br />

This is where Dogwatch comes in. If there’s room, unwanted<br />

dogs are taken in and then the search for a suitable home begins.<br />

Hank, who features on page 1, has been at Dogwatch since late<br />

October. He has a few quirks but otherwise is a lovely dog, as<br />

most border collies are.<br />

Photographer Martin Hunter said he played ball for the pic.<br />

It would be nice for Hank to have a home.<br />

Give Dogwatch a call on 981 4708.<br />

Santa letters thrill pre-schoolers<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

CHILDREN across Canterbury<br />

received a Christmas surprise in<br />

the mail – a personalised letter<br />

from a special man in a big red<br />

suit.<br />

Letters from Santa Claus<br />

have travelled all the way from<br />

the North Pole to children in<br />

Canterbury in response to the<br />

children’s wish list requests.<br />

The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool<br />

and Nursery based in West Melton<br />

was one of many pre-schools<br />

and primary schools in New<br />

Zealand to receive the letters.<br />

The pre-school’s inventors,<br />

adventure and navigator classrooms<br />

had their Santa letters<br />

handed out to them at their<br />

Christmas concert recently.<br />

With a bit of help from New<br />

Zealand Post, Santa sent 73,000<br />

letters to children in 1102<br />

schools and early childhood<br />

education centres across the<br />

country.<br />

The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool<br />

and Nursery owner Tracy Summerfield<br />

said the children were<br />

“blown away” and appreciated<br />

the gesture from NZ Post.<br />

She said the opportunity for<br />

children to write their letters to<br />

Santa was great for their literacy<br />

skills.<br />

Hatchimals, dolls, toy<br />

tractors, trucks, racing cars<br />

SPECIAL SURPRISE: (From left) – Anna Van Zyl, Pedro Pellizzari, Mack Smith and Ruby Bowden<br />

and rugby-themed toys were<br />

popular requests made to<br />

Santa by children at the preschool.<br />

LOL Surprise Dolls,<br />

Baby Alive Dolls, Nerf guns and<br />

TV character toys from the films<br />

Frozen and PAW Patrol were<br />

common requests from children<br />

nationwide.<br />

But as Santa reminded the<br />

children in his letter: “Christmas<br />

is more than just about presents.<br />

It’s about celebrating with your<br />

friends and family.”<br />

NZ Post has been helping letters<br />

get to and from Santa for the<br />

past 19 years.<br />

A NZ Post spokeswoman<br />

said it wanted to bring joy<br />

to people at Christmas and<br />

help keep the magic of Santa<br />

alive.<br />

“Receiving a letter from Santa<br />

is a magical moment for a child<br />

and being a postal business we<br />

can play a role in facilitating that<br />

moment,” she said.<br />

GROUP BUYS POOL SITE<br />

The former Edgeware Pool<br />

site is officially owned by the<br />

community – and it only cost $1.<br />

Last week, the St Albans Pavilion<br />

and Pool Group signed the city<br />

council’s sale and purchase<br />

agreement, making the group the<br />

owner of 43a Edgeware Rd after<br />

being offered the land at a low<br />

cost earlier this year. Fundraising<br />

for the construction of the pool is<br />

set to start early in the new year.<br />

CEMETERY EXPANSION<br />

The Fendalton-Waimairi-<br />

expanding Avonhead Park<br />

Cemetery. A staff feasibility<br />

report will be presented back<br />

to the board in the new year<br />

and the board will then decide<br />

whether or not to include it in its<br />

submission on the Long Term<br />

Plan.<br />

Wind and<br />

falling<br />

branch<br />

cause<br />

of fire<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

SEVERE WIND and a falling<br />

branch caused a powerpole to<br />

catch fire in Leeston last week.<br />

The Leeston Volunteer Fire<br />

Brigade was called out to the<br />

fire at Lochheads Rd at about<br />

4.30pm last Tuesday.<br />

Chief fire officer Lloyd<br />

Clausen said a severe southerly<br />

wind change caused a branch<br />

to break off a tree which fell<br />

across powerlines and caught<br />

fire.<br />

The branch then fell to the<br />

ground causing a small grass<br />

fire which burnt back towards<br />

the base of the pole.<br />

Mr Clausen said while<br />

the power pole wasn’t badly<br />

damaged, it was replaced by an<br />

Orion contractor.<br />

The replacement of the pole<br />

briefly caused a power outage<br />

along the road.<br />

Doggone good calendars<br />

•From page 1<br />

Hank is one of 12 dogs the<br />

trust is currently trying to<br />

rehome.<br />

In a bid to continue rehoming<br />

abandoned dogs, the trust has<br />

teamed up with Community<br />

Energy Action to create the 2018<br />

calendar.<br />

The calendar’s message this<br />

year focuses on raising awareness<br />

for the rescuing and re-homing<br />

of abandoned dogs and educate<br />

people about energy efficiency.<br />

“It is a combined effort that<br />

has gone down very well. Some<br />

dogs just do not cope with cold<br />

weather,” Mrs Howard said.<br />

The trust has been producing<br />

calendars since about 2011.<br />

Funds raised go towards the<br />

operation of the rescue centre.<br />

“We have always had huge<br />

support from the community but<br />

this year we were sponsored by<br />

CEA. They have done a fantastic<br />

job,” Mrs Howard said.<br />

Dogwatch is a charitable trust<br />

which rescues and re-homes dogs<br />

and puppies which have ended<br />

up in the Christchurch, Selwyn<br />

and Waimakariri pounds.<br />

After a seven day holding<br />

period the council becomes the<br />

legal owner and either re-homes<br />

the dog or puts it down.<br />

If no one claims the dogs,<br />

Dogwatch is contacted and if it<br />

has kennel space dogs are taken<br />

into its care.<br />

•Calendars are available for<br />

purchase online at www.<br />

Selling vehicles on the<br />

roadside still popular<br />

In spite of city council plan to ban it<br />

TEN PRIVATELY-owned vehicles were<br />

parked up for sale on Riccarton Rd<br />

between Wharenui and Ilam Rds<br />

last week.<br />

But in March, when the city<br />

council’s new Traffic and Parking<br />

Bylaw comes into force, the owners<br />

of these vehicles will be breaking<br />

the law.<br />

Under the new bylaw, a person<br />

must not stop, stand or park a<br />

vehicle on any road or parking place to<br />

offer it for sale, unless it is being used for<br />

day-to-day travel.<br />

Helen Beaumont said on some streets,<br />

it created hazards and distractions.<br />

“Drivers have been seen making<br />

risky manoeuvres, such as<br />

U-turns, in order to get a better view<br />

or to park alongside the cars for sale.”<br />

AA senior policy analyst Mark<br />

Stockdale said, if implemented,<br />

the city council should focus its<br />

enforcement on the busy streets where<br />

there was a risk.<br />

“Car sales businesses shouldn’t be using<br />

public parks to sell cars for profit.”<br />

Community centre almost<br />

ready for move to Shirley<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

MACFARLANE PARK is one step closer<br />

to becoming the transitional St Albans<br />

Community Centre building’s new home.<br />

The plan to move the building from<br />

Colombo St to the Shirley park was<br />

finalised at an extraordinary Papanui-<br />

Innes Community Board meeting this<br />

month.<br />

However, according to a city council<br />

staff report, resource consent still needs<br />

to be granted and the park’s classification<br />

changed.<br />

“Council staff will seek to change the<br />

reserve classification from Recreation<br />

Reserve to Local Purpose (Community<br />

Building) Reserve; there is a process to<br />

follow as outlined within the Reserves Act<br />

1977, and the outcome is not able to be<br />

pre-determined,” the report said.<br />

classification is not changed, the<br />

building would have to be removed from<br />

MacFarlane Park in 2021.<br />

It will take between two to eight months<br />

to move the building, depending on how<br />

quickly the consent is issued.<br />

The building has served as the St Albans<br />

Community Centre since the February<br />

22, 2011, earthquake put the original<br />

centre out of action.<br />

But with the new St Albans centre<br />

rebuild about to start, the building will get<br />

another lease of life, replacing the Shirley<br />

Community Trust’s facility.<br />

As well as relocating the building, new<br />

paths, a park bench and a small car park<br />

with a cycle stand will be installed.<br />

The building has been gifted to the city<br />

council by the Lions International Club at<br />

a cost of $255,000.<br />

The city council approved $125,000 at<br />

the start of last month towards moving<br />

the building.<br />

“After the floods, we went<br />

straight into Coes once the water<br />

subsided. We cleaned all of the<br />

silt from the main toilet block<br />

and removed debris from the<br />

fences – just for the area to be reflooded<br />

another five times over<br />

the coming months,” he said.<br />

The district council also<br />

brought together some biodiversity<br />

experts to provide community<br />

help, removing river<br />

debris from plants and staking<br />

up flattened shrubs.<br />

At the Chamberlains Old<br />

Bridge Rd entrance broken fence<br />

lines were repaired, river debris<br />

was removed, shingle driveways<br />

were rebased and graded.<br />

Mr Burke said the current<br />

shingle drives were completely<br />

washed away leaving only a soil<br />

base.<br />

“We cleaned out the toilet<br />

areas and tested all equipment,<br />

checked the stability of all of the<br />

trees and removed any that had<br />

been compromised,” he said.<br />

The NZ Army also pitched in<br />

at Chamberlains, by providing<br />

100 personnel for four hours<br />

through one of its youth programmes.<br />

The volunteers re-staked<br />

plants, removed river debris,<br />

hand picked stones off the turf<br />

areas and put topsoil around the<br />

roots of eroded shrubs.<br />

NEW ENTRANCE: <strong>26</strong>1 Manion Road, Weedons<br />

Access to Intelligro from Manion Road is now available from both the<br />

Weedons Ross Road end, and Curraghs Road entrances.<br />

REOPENED: The entrance<br />

to Chamberlains Ford when<br />

it was closed after winter<br />

flooding.<br />

been washed into area from the<br />

flood was removed, a large scour<br />

in the ground was filled in, the<br />

entire site was relevelled and the<br />

driveway was fixed,” Mr Burke<br />

said.<br />

At both sites there are currently<br />

small areas that are still<br />

not ready to be opened to the<br />

public.<br />

On south side of the Coes<br />

Ford, the toilet block needs to<br />

be relevelled on a raised mound<br />

as it was washed out during the<br />

floods.<br />

Due to massive amount of<br />

relevelling works and reinstatement<br />

works of the Chamberlains<br />

Ford site, the grass in the area<br />

needs time to recover and regenerate.<br />

The district council has installed<br />

new signage at Coes and<br />

Chamberlains.<br />

It asks visitors to the area take<br />

time to read the new signs and<br />

follow the instructions.<br />

SUMMER FUN AND HOLIDAY GUIDE<br />

Fun in the water this summer<br />

There are some great places to swim<br />

nearby. Starting with Rolleston’s Selwyn<br />

Aquatic Centre, children and adults alike<br />

will enjoy time in the pool with inflatables<br />

and paddle boats there to add to the fun.<br />

Check the advertisement on this page and<br />

www.selwyn.govt.nz/facilities-and-parks/<br />

selwyn-aquatic-centre for hours and days<br />

the centre is open.<br />

Local public swimming pools open this<br />

year are:<br />

• Darfield – an outdoor pool and two<br />

indoor pools – learners’ and paddling.<br />

(Children under 8 years must be<br />

Lakes and rivers suitable for swimming<br />

vary in water height and quality by the<br />

season and over summer. Swimming holes<br />

and places for a cool dip may be found in<br />

the:<br />

• Selwyn River at Coes Ford, Chamberlain’s<br />

Ford, Whitecliffs and Glentunnel.<br />

• Waimakariri River, a fast flowing river<br />

so avoid the main channels especially when<br />

the river is high, looking instead for a<br />

quieter flowing area.<br />

• The high country lakes, which may offer<br />

the opportunity for a quick albeit cold dip.<br />

(Check Ecan’s Facebook page: www.<br />

facebook.com/canterburyrecwater for<br />

water quality.)<br />

across the harbour at Wainui.<br />

• Eastern Bays – Port Levy, Pigeon<br />

Bay, Little Akaloa, Okains Bay (bookings<br />

essential for those camping), and Le Bons<br />

Bay.<br />

• Lyttelton Harbour – Corsair Bay,<br />

Cass Bay, Governor’s Bay, Charteris Bay,<br />

Diamond Harbour, Purau and Camp Bay.<br />

• Pegasus Bay – Taylor’s Mistake and<br />

Sumner through to Waikuku are great for<br />

swimming and surfing when the surf is on.<br />

The coolest<br />

place in Selwyn<br />

this summer!<br />

SUMMER FUN AND HOLIDAY GUIDE<br />

Fun trips to do in a day<br />

Selwyn stretches south to the Rakaia River, north<br />

to the Waimakariri River and west to the mountains,<br />

providing interesting places to explore. Some are<br />

well-known, others almost forgotten.<br />

Arthur’s Pass – Short walks through<br />

the township take in authentic baches, a<br />

quaint chapel and beech forest. There are<br />

also tramping tracks taking a few hours<br />

to several days. Look out for curious Keas.<br />

They peck at cars and steal what they can,<br />

and resist the temptation to feed them as<br />

this threatens their survival.<br />

Glentunnel – Many townships have<br />

domains ideal for sport and a picnic like<br />

Glentunnel. Check out the town’s historic<br />

buildings like the 1886 octagonal library<br />

built from bricks produced in the local kiln<br />

and museum (open every Sunday from<br />

1-4pm).<br />

Hororata – A town with history, you can<br />

visit Coton’s Cottage (built in 1864) on fine<br />

Sunday afternoons while a little out of town<br />

the earthquake damaged, 1911 St John’s<br />

Church is a fine example of a local volcanic<br />

stone building.<br />

Coleridge Township – Originating as a<br />

result of the construction of the Coleridge<br />

Power Station, which opened in 1914 and<br />

still provides power to Christchurch, this<br />

sleepy holiday town sits on the banks of<br />

the Rakaia River, near to Lake Coleridge.<br />

It has botanical easy walks and<br />

spacious picnic areas.<br />

Lake Ellesmere (Te<br />

Waihora) – This lake<br />

originally covered much of<br />

its surrounding farmland,<br />

explaining Greenpark and<br />

Lincoln’s good soil. There are<br />

a number of access points for<br />

boating, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking,<br />

jet-skiing, eeling, bird watching and<br />

duck shooting (in season). Driving<br />

along Kaitorete Spit for views across<br />

the lake and out to sea. Pack a fishing<br />

rod and picnic for an enjoyable and<br />

relaxing day out.<br />

Banks Peninsula – Lyttelton’s food<br />

establishments vary in their cuisine and<br />

include healthy options. The harbour<br />

is ideal for boating and the many bays<br />

ideal for swimming and picnics.<br />

Orton Bradley Park is great for<br />

large groups. Stroll through the park’s<br />

Rhododendron garden, around its historic<br />

buildings, or up the hill. A small charge<br />

applies for day visits and camping.<br />

Kaituna Valley has an intimate and<br />

sheltered domain with a short walk<br />

along a babbling brook. Stop at the<br />

1934 St Kentigern’s Anglican Church, built<br />

from reinforced concrete with a Kaituna<br />

stone façade and Oamaru stone faced<br />

windows.<br />
