life-saving kidney transplant.

Said Maddie’s mother Sarah

Manson-Collins: “It’s great to be

out (of hospital) as it’s one step

towards home.”

Maddie, 14, was discharged

from Starship Children’s Health

on Thursday, but is returning

there every second day

for a month to have blood

tests.

Mrs Manson-Collins told

Selwyn Times Maddie’s kidney

disease, nephrotic syndrome,

had not returned yet.

Maddie, 14, and her family

were told on January 16 their

five-year wait for a kidney

match had been found.

opposition

dries up

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A NEW BOTTLE store will open

in Lincoln after objectors failed

to turn up to a hearing to try and

stop it.

SJTP Ltd was granted a licence

for the Liquorland store in Vernon

Drive across from the New World

supermarket. It is expected to open

soon.

There were 166 written objections

to the licence and 48 of those

said they wanted to be heard at the

hearing which was held in November

at the Lincoln Event Centre.

But only one of those turned up

and that person didn’t want to be

heard.

The Selwyn District Licensing

Committee released it decision last

week.

District licensing chairman Al

Lawn said the lack of turnout from

objectors at the hearing was “disappointing.”

This was because the applicant is

prevented from testing any of the

objector’s claims and assertions, he

said.

Objectors included Lincoln High

School board of trustees chairman

Adrian Paterson, Lincoln

University’s chief operating officer,

businesses and residents.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

from the editor’s desk

PEOPLE WILL complain over just about

anything.

But when it comes to putting a stake in

the ground, it’s a different story.

That’s the bottom line to our front page

article today: The Claytons opposition to

Liquorland in Lincoln.

There were 166 objections to the bottle store and 48 of those

wanted to stand up and be counted at the hearing to decide

whether it got the green light or not. Only one of those turned

up and that person didn’t want to speak.

The bottle store is in a commercial area, away from schools

and homes, and will bring business and employment to Lincoln

– as well as keeping the heat on prices.

So was there any point in objecting?

Quarry fight gains

momentum after meeting

• By Emily O’Connell

FENCES WILL be painted and

a Givealittle page started in a bid

to continue to fight against plans

for a quarry near Weedons and

Templeton.

Fulton Hogan says the quarry,

which will be on a 170ha section

of land on Dawsons, Curraghs

and Jones Rds, will be there for

up to 40 years.

About 500 people filled the

Templeton Community Centre

last week to ask representatives

from Environment Canterbury,

the city council and the Selwyn

District Council

about potential

health risks, water

issues and the

devaluing of properties.

Garry Kilday

Templeton Residents

Association

chairman Garry Kilday said the

meeting was “really positive” but

“there’s a lot they [representatives]

aren’t saying.”

Mr Kilday said the group will

now look at opening a Givealittle

page to help cover legal costs.

He said some residents have offered

for their fences to be painted

with ‘no quarry’ messages.

At the meeting, a Templeton

resident who lives 250m away

from the proposed site, asked

what will happen to the water

supply she gets from her well.

“I’m pretty sure the quarry is

going to be deeper than 36m, so

what happens when our water is

contaminated? Do we just start

buying water or what?” she asked.

ECan consents planning manager

Phil Burge said “he wouldn’t

anticipate they would dig that

deep” but they will have to assess

the impact once they receive a

resource consent application.

But Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board chairman

Mike Mora said residents who

live near the quarries in Yaldhurst

are drinking bottled water due to

contaminated wells.

In a letter to the Templeton

Residents Association, Fulton

Hogan said it would opt for public

notification on its resource

consent application.

But a day later, when a

Weedons resident met with

Fulton Hogan, he was told they

hadn’t yet decided.

Selwyn District Council

environment services manager

Tim Harris said the final call

on if it is publicly notified lies

with the council.

“Something this scale is very

likely to go through some sort of

notified process irrespective of

whether they [Fulton Hogan] ask

for that to happen,” he said.

Mr Kilday is concerned no

one will monitor the conditions

placed on Fulton Hogan’s resource

consent.

But Mr Harris said if consent

is granted, there will be a range

conditions the district council

will oversee.

Fulton Hogan is planning on

submitting an application in May.

VEGETATION FIRES

Lincoln volunteer firefighters

attended five vegetation-related

fires in the area on Thursday.

Chief fire officer Jeremy Greenwood

said a combination of the

nor-west wind and electricity

lines touching vegetation were

the main causes for the fires.

Leeston, Southbridge, Dunsandel

and Rolleston brigades assisted

with the fires. Mr Greenwood

said mainly hedges and

toi tois on Clarks Rd caught fire.

On the same day, the brigade

also assisted in containing a fire

which destroyed a commercial

building on Weedons Ross Rd,

near Rolleston, and a major fire

which broke out in West Melton.

Homes were evacuated and two

people were taken to hospital.

HOUSE DAMAGED IN FIRE

Part of a roof and wall were damaged

after a fire broke out in an

Annat house last week. Sheffield,

Darfield and Springfield fire

services were called to the fire at

2.17pm on Tuesday. The fire was

at a residential home on Tramway

Rd. Sheffield Volunteer Fire

Brigade chief fire officer Neville

Croy said while there was smoke

and water damage the fire was

contained to one room.

Liquorland gets go-ahead at Lincoln

•From page 1

Mr Lawn said while the majority

of objections received were

short on detail there were some

well thought out and the panel

would have welcomed hearing

these in person.

“Objectors who do not attend

the hearing in support of their

objections means that their

objections carry little weight,” he

said.

Mr Paterson said he did not

attend the hearing because its

students are not usually going to

be in the bottle’s store’s area and

thought a written submission was

substantial.

“We are always disappointed

when there is another (liquor)

outlet coming into town,” he

said.

Mr Paterson said there may

have been a low attendance

because people are unsure if their

submission will mean anything.

“Plenty of them get objected to

but it doesn’t seem to make much

difference,” he said.

A Lincoln University spokeswoman

said it did not attend the

hearing because while it made

a submission it did not directly

oppose the application.

However, district council documents

list the university as an

objector.

Police, the district’s alcohol

licensing inspector Helene Faass

and the medical officer of health

Paula Williams did not oppose

the application.

STJP director Sacha Fougere

gave evidence at the hearing,

outlining her more than 10 years

experience in the industry. She

said there is substantial growth

in the area that can support a

further off-licence without increasing

harm.

Mr Lawn said the bottle store

was allowed to go ahead based

on there being no evidence

brought before the hearing panel

that there was alcohol abuse

problems in the area.

“Police did not adduce any relevant

crime data. It can therefore

be concluded that there is very

little alcohol-related harm in the

area,” he said.

Conditions include the liquor

store will run from Monday to

Sunday, 9am-9pm, the whole

premises will be supervised

and there will be no external

advertising of alcohol products

on the outside of the building –

or on advertising boards outside

the premises.

Springfield church repairs needed

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ONE OF Springfield’s oldest

buildings is in need of repairs.

The St Peter’s Community

Church committee is calling

for the Springfield community

to support its bid to repaint the

roof and undertake repairs to the

woodwork on the exterior.

Originally built in 1885, the

church’s congregation is planning

to run various fundraising

ventures to preserve the building.

The committee’s chairman

Graeme Dawson said it is a

“beautiful little church” and not

a lot of money has been spent on

it in the last 20 to 30 years.

He said the repaint of the

church’s roof is expected to

start at the end of February

while a time line for the exterior

of the building is yet to be established.

“The building is not going to

fall down – that is overstating it

but it does need maintenance so

it doesn’t fall down,” Mr Dawson

said.

Work on the exterior includes

replacing rotten weatherboards,

the window sills and the surrounds

of the window.

“It is still 100 per cent usable

at this stage . . . but it is just if we

don’t start it may get to the stage

where things are going downhill

SPECIAL: The St Peter’s Community Church in Springfield is in need of repairs.

pretty quickly,” Mr Dawson said.

While the interior of the

church was damaged in the

earthquake, repairs were covered

by insurance.

Mr Dawson said the costs of

the repairs are yet to be confirmed.

Venerable Susan Baldwin said

the church is the spiritual centre

of the community’s heart.

“It is a place where people look

for spiritual moments – weddings,

funerals or baptism,” she

said.

She said because of the growth

in Springfield, the church will be

moving to having two services

a month – on both the first and

third Sunday of the month.

Springfield is expected to reach

a population of 527 by 2025.

Mr Dawson said because of

the age and type of the building,

the committee is getting several

inquiries for weddings which

could be the future of the

church.

Maddie

released

from

hospital

•From page 1

They flew from Christchurch

to Auckland early the

following day and Maddie

underwent the initial

operation and then a second

operation to reposition the

kidney hours later at Starship

Children’s Health.

Maddie received a kidney

transplant from her father

Adam Collins five years ago

but her body rejected it. With

only a two per cent chance, the

family did not expect to find

another kidney match in New

Zealand.

They were planning a trip

to The John Hopkins Hospital

in Baltimore, United States,

which had been looking at

new kinds of transplants, to

find a match.

Mrs Manson-Collins said

Maddie will have more surgery

in two weeks and then “it’s

all about when she’s stable

enough to go home.”

Hororata has a lot to offer

Hororata

Community

Trust

executive

officer Cindy

Driscoll writes

about the

exciting

line-up of

events planned in Hororata

this year

COMMUNITY spirit is core

to New Zealand’s rural culture

and I’m proud to say it is alive

and well in Hororata and its

surrounding communities.

As Hororata Community

Trust executive officer, I’m

continually overwhelmed by the

generosity and support that I see

in our community.

It is through the dedication

and hard work of so many

volunteers who are passionate

about seeing our communities

continue to grow and flourish,

that the trust can achieve so

much.

Last year was a big one for the

trust. Events started with a free

Scottish concert in the Hororata

Hall and then the Heritage

Open Day.

We attended the South ​Island ​

Agricultural ​Field ​Days and

The Star Home and Leisure

STAMINA: The Hororata Highland Games will return in

November complete with the popular Tug O’ War competition.

PHOTO: MURRAY IRWIN

Show to promote all that our

district has to offer.

The ceilidh event saw the

Hororata Hall once again in full

swing to an array of Scottish

tunes.

Among all of this, Go

Hororata was formed. The

trust is excited to be part of this

driven and motivated group.

In August, the trust funded a

feasibility study on the

concept of a new community

centre.

This saw Go Hororata present

a proposal to the district council

for a new community centre on

the Hororata Domain.

Then of course in November,

the Hororata Highland Games

was again a huge success with

11,000 enjoying this amazing

event.

And 2018 is looking just as

exciting. On March 11, the trust

will host the ‘heritage of a rural

water scheme’ bus tour.

On this tour, people will learn

about the transition from open

water races to the efficiency

of piped water. Tickets are

available now for this event.

Then on April 28, the

Hororata Night Glow will take

place in the wonderful Hororata

Domain.

This will be a spectacular

event with hot air balloons

firing up the night sky and

‘glowing’ in unison to music.

Surrounding the Night Glow

will be an autumn festival which

promotes local businesses and

community groups.

The trust will continue to

work as part of the Go Hororata

group on the new community

centre and other projects.

To find out more, make

sure you visit www.hororata.

org.nz and follow the trust on

Facebook. I am looking forward

to seeing what we can all achieve

together in 2018.

A reader responds to an

article about the potential

chlorination of water

supplies across the district

Rebecca Henderson – This

topic makes me so angry. I could

go on and on how chlorine is

so dangerous for our health. I

have lived in Springfield for 12

years where the water is heavily

chlorinated. I fought black and

blue with the district council to

sort out a filtration system for the

water when my son was a baby

(10 years ago) as he was suffering

from severe eczema and putting

him in a bath of chlorinated water

was like walking on broken glass

for him. The neighbours would

hear his screams three blocks

away.

I spend $20 per week on bottled

water on a solo parent. Why

would you put chemicals in your

body when it is not necessary and

filtration systems can be put in

place?

SELWYN TIMES

History of the district: Homebush

Due to strong public interest after the Rolleston 150 th

celebrations in 2015, Selwyn District councillor Jeff

Bland and Wayne Stack, a historian who also works

for the district council, recognised that continuing to

promote local history would have long-term social

and economic benefits within the district. Although

both hail from the West Coast, they have previously

served as policemen in the Selwyn District and have

gained an affinity with its people and heritage. Mr

Bland currently holds the arts and heritage portfolio

within the district council. One initiative taken by the

pair, with support from Selwyn Times, is to provide a

series of monthly features focusing on various historic

places and people who have stories that add value

to the district’s heritage. The first feature relates to

early industry in the area. Anyone with suggestions for

future features can contact Wayne on 021 119 9107

THE SELWYN District is rich

in human history, dating back

to the migration of Maori and

colonial settlement, through to

the present day.

With the recent rapid growth

within the district resulting in

increased urban and industrial

development and an influx of

permanent residents, many

coming from overseas, there is

now a greater need to identify

and promote features of historic

significance before they are lost.

Promoting an understanding

of our local history and how the

district has developed over the

years will help strengthen a sense

of identity and belonging within

communities.

The Homebush Brick,

Pipe and Terra-Cotta

Works, Glentunnel

Since the time of colonial

settlement the area that the

Selwyn District now covers was

primarily developed through an

agricultural economy. However,

there was also opportunity

for industry to thrive through

investment from prominent

local landholders and through

the extraction of natural

resources within the area. In the

late 1900s, the prime example

of this was the establishment

of the Homebush Brick, Pipe

and Terra-Cotta Works at

Glentunnel, which played an

important role in the overall

development of Canterbury and

especially Christchurch.

Homebush Station, west of

Darfield, was established by

William and John Deans in 1851.

After emigrating from Scotland

in 1843, the brothers were

some of the earliest European

settlers in Canterbury and had

originally farmed a large holding

at Riccarton on the current site

of Riccarton House and Bush.

When the Canterbury Association

subsequently planned the

settlement of Christchurch, the

Deans’ brothers exchanged some

of their land at Riccarton for

the 33,000 acre (13354ha) run

in the Malvern Hills. Originally

the domestic and out buildings

on the property were built using

red bricks that were first made

from kiln-firing on site and later

from the family-owned local

brickworks.

The Homebush Brick and Tile

Works was first established at

Glentunnel by John Deans in

1870. There was an abundance

of suitable clay in the area and

the coal used for manufacturing

was sourced from the Homebush

Colliery (which Deans also

owned) located in the hills on

the north side of the Glentunnel

Valley.

Brick, Pipe and Terra-Cotta Works

This was about 3km from the

railway line that went through

Glentunnel. The clay and coal

was brought from the surrounding

hills by railway wagons to the

Brick and Tile Works situated in

the village, on the north side of

the branch line to Whitecliffs.

For about 16 years, production

at the works was confined to the

manufacture of bricks, but in

1886 this was extended to making

drain pipes for agricultural

and domestic purposes, followed

two years later by producing

pottery and terra-cotta goods.

Apart from providing bricks for

the now well-known historic

buildings at Homebush and for

numerous other stately homesteads

in the district, the prosperous

business also supplied the

growing domestic and industrial

building market in Christchurch,

where the company had

established a distribution depot

at 81 South Belt (now known as

Moorhouse Ave).

In 1903, the brick works was

described as “a commodious

brick building with an iron roof,

and contains three drying sheds,

two machine sheds, and engine

and boiler house, and a repairing

shop. It possesses two kilns

capable, respectively, of holding

16,000 and 24, 000 bricks, and

new machinery of a modern

make is being introduced. With

an abundance of buff, red and

fire clays of high-quality near at

hand, machinery of a most efficient

and up-to-date order, good

coal supplied by the Homebush

Colliery, and railway communications,

the Homebush Brick,

Pipe and Terra-Cotta Works are

in a particularly favourable position

to compete successfully with

other works in the colony. All the

classes of goods manufactured

are known for the fine finish and

durability, and find a ready sale

in the market.”

At this time, the factory

employed 15 men and had an

annual output of about £3,000 –

around $530,000 today.

The factory remained a

long-standing employer and

important contributor to the

local economy. By 1926 the

business had been purchased by

McSkimming & Sons Ltd, with

production continuing until

1983. The buildings were later

taken down and the site is now

a residential property. However,

clay brick making has remained

an important component of the

district’s economy for almost

150 years, with Canterbury Clay

Bricks, of Darfield, continuing to

produce quality bricks which are

supplied nationwide.

•Anyone interested in

knowing more of the history

of brick, tile and pottery

making within the district

should visit the Glentunnel

Museum on Phillip St,

Glentunnel, where

there is an impressive

collection of historical

photographs and items

from the factory on display.

Melissa Jebson

Darfield resident Melissa Jebson, 56, was awarded a

Queen’s Service Medal earlier this year. She spoke to

Georgia O’Connor-Harding about her passion for helping the

Malvern community and the life-changing car accident she

survived in 1993

You do a lot of work for the

community. Is there anything

coming up on the horizon?

This is probably my least busy

month. March is chaotic. I did

announcing last weekend for

the Canterbury Horse & Pony

Breeders Society Incorporated

show. I am judging or announcing

most weekends. I had two

meetings last month and about

seven community committees

have their first meeting in

February. In March, as well as

my committees I have also got

shows – I am the chairwoman of

the Central District of the Royal

Agricultural Society, and I have

been asked to judge at the Upper

Clutha A&P Show in Wanaka,

which is a two day show. I am

also announcing at the New

Zealand Horse of the Year show

in Hawke’s Bay in March.

What does your role in

announcing involve?

I might do some interviews;

I am on a roving mic. I might

interview some judges and find

out how the competitors are

feeling when they win.

Is it a fun job announcing?

You don’t want to be on the

mic all the time, you don’t want

to upset anybody, and you have

to be very politically correct. I

enjoy it at the A&P shows. We

breed sheep and cattle so I have

a bit of knowledge in that area. I

enjoy interviewing people who

have done well with their sheep

and cattle.

You are the secretary for

five township and reserve

committees in Malvern and one

in Ellesmere. Why are you so

passionate about helping out?

The rural sector is not dying,

but it is losing a bit of identity.

With people putting a bit into

their community plus the A&P

shows, they are keeping these

rural communities alive. I am in

the background and enjoy helping.

As secretary, I don’t put too

much input in – I just take down

what they are talking about.

Which committees are the

most interesting or have the

most going on?

Each township committee has

its own interests. Dunsandel has

built a wonderful new hall for

their community centre. It has

been great being part of that and

watching the community really

get behind the committee. The

community made it happen. In

Sheffield, you have a few challenges

with speed. A new Allied

Petroleum station has been put

in and there were a few hiccups

with that. It is working through

the little obstacles or the little

things in the township that need

ironing out. Kimberly Hall’s

roof is being upgraded. The

Glentunnel Community Centre

and the Tawera Memorial Hall

Community Centre committees

are working passionately to keep

their halls going, and the same

with the Sheffield Community

Hall, which is going through a

few problems with the structure

upgrade.

You received a Queen’s

Service Medal in the New Year

Honours. How did that

feel?

I was blown away. I do it

because I enjoy what I do really.

I do a lot at Darfield High School

– I am the rugby administrator

there and I am the chairwoman

of Creative New Zealand, Selwyn

District. Because I have been a

singer and I have represented

New Zealand, I enjoy the arts

and I am passionate about people

being able to access art, especially

in rural areas. It has improved

a lot – I think the way Creative

New Zealand has local people on

its committees is fantastic.

I didn’t know you were a

singer?

Yes, I was in the New Zealand

Youth Choir. I sing mainly now

at funerals and weddings. I enjoy

my singing. It is something that

helps me relax.

Do you have a favourite type

of music?

Classical, folk and stage

show musicals. I do enjoy some

of the pop genre happening at

the moment – some things more

than others.

I have always enjoyed Shania

Twain, Tina Turner and Elton

John. I sang with Dame Kiri

Te Kanawa. I was in the New

Zealand Youth Choir and we

sang with her in a concert at

Wembley Stadium in front of

Prince Charles. One of my other

Absolutely amazing. We sang

Tell me about the car accident

where you broke your neck?

In 1993 I was involved in a

car accident. My car tyre blew

out and I woke up in Burwood

Spinal Unit. I was kept in an

induced coma, and coming out

of the coma I was wondering if I

could use my legs. My husband

John and I were only six months

into our marriage so it was quite

a significant time in my life –

especially when the specialist

told me not to be surprised if I

didn’t conceive because my body

went through such trauma. I

am very lucky, I have had two

wonderful children. But I got

Apparently – and I can’t

You are extremely lucky.

It was interesting – when the

accident happened people were

digging potatoes in the next door

paddock and they thought it was

cardboard flying through the air.

Where did it happen?

Further up from the corner

of the Old West Coast Rd and

Waimakariri Gorge Rd in Waddington,

just out of Sheffield. I

was heading down to umpire

netball. I was the only senior

umpire and I never turned up. I

am usually quite reliable so they

knew something was wrong.

You are involved in so many

things now, including being

a national equestrian judge.

Where did your passion for

horses come from?

I started riding when I was

14 – I’d love to be able to ride

again but the accident put paid

to that. My neck hasn’t healed.

I can’t turn the full range, but I

can turn my head. I have to be

careful. I was told I shouldn’t

they bash their head into mine.

I have to be careful what I do.

That is why I moved into horse

judging is wonderful, and I have

been very lucky to have been able

to judge all over New Zealand.

Did you grow up on a farm?

No I didn’t. My father was a

builder and we lived in Rangiora.

Where did your love of

agriculture come from?

When I finished my diploma

in teaching, I went back home to

Rangiora and didn’t really know

anybody, so I joined the New

Zealand Young Farmers club. I

got to meet people, and that is

how I got into netball umpiring.

The club provides an amazing

avenue for experiencing rural

activities, even if you haven’t

got a rural bent. I represented

New Zealand in the Japanese

Goodwill Mission in 1991, where

I was a guest of the Japanese

government. There were five

New Zealanders that went across

and we joined up with more than

300 Japanese people to share

our culture. There were about 15

other countries represented.

Brettkelly a win away from NZ Open

SPORTS

HOPEFUL: Dominic Brettkelly

is hoping to shoot a strong

round in Cromwell to qualify

for the New Zealand Open.

• By Gordon Findlater

HORORATA’S Dominic

Brettkelly is one step away from

a spot in the New Zealand Open

after victory at a qualifying event

in Christchurch last week.

Brettkelly, 18, shot a one-overpar

73 in windy conditions at the

Christchurch club, which proved

to be the best score in the oneround

tournament.

The amateur now advances to

the final stage of qualifying at

the Cromwell club on February

27. The left-hander advanced to

the same stage in 2017. However,

he feels his game has progressed

considerably over the past 12

months and is confident of being

in the hunt for a spot at the New

Zealand Open in Queenstown

from March 1-4.

“If you’re not under par, you

don’t stand a chance. I’ve played

the course a lot, so I feel pretty

comfortable around there but

it’s still a big step up,” said

Brettkelly.

“My ball-striking and iron play

has improved a lot. I’m hitting

more greens and my consistency

has improved as well.”

Another final qualifying

round event takes place on the

same day at Paraparaumu Beach.

The six leading scorers on a

pro-rata basis across both events

will move through to the final

field for the $1.2 million New

Zealand Open. The big purse

will once again attract a host of

international golfers looking to

qualify for the event. That will

raise the standard required by

the likes of Brettkelly, who is

looking for one of the final spots

in the field.

“Last year I played with an

Australian guy that had flown

over just for the qualifying and

he didn’t get in so he just went

straight home.”

Other qualifiers from the

Christchurch tournament

were Tom Wilson, Templeton,

Tom Hardy, Russley, Jordan

‘If you’re not under

par, you don’t stand

a chance’

– Dominic Brettkelly

Pruden, Bottle Lake, Joshua

Roche, Christchurch, and Peter

Brinsdon, Pegasus.

The Christchurch qualifiers

and 19 other first-round

qualifiers from around the

country will join exempt

amateurs and professionals who

miss out on direct entry at the

final qualifying round.

The 10 top amateurs on the

order of merit at the end of 2017

and the leading 50 players from

the New Zealand PGA order of

merit automatically go through

to final qualifying.

Brettkelly has had a strong

start to the year. In January, he

won the Canterbury stroke-play

title at Waitikiri.

In August, Brettkelly will

depart for the United States to

begin life as a student athlete at

division one college, Western

Kentucky University, in Bowling

Green.

Weedons near top of

the table after nail-biter

WEEDONS edged

Darfield-South Malvern

in a nail-biting final over,

winning the match with

four balls to spare in the

country premier one-day

competition.

Played at Weedons

Domain the home side

batted first, notching up

211, with wicketkeeperbatsman

Todd Inness

compiling a dominant 71

off 80 balls.

Michael Pauling set out

to anchor the chase, with

26 off 62 balls, as others

batted around him.

Devon Nightingale had

other ideas though, picking

up four crucial wickets

with a relentless barrage of

accurate bowling.

With seven runs needed

to win, Weedons snared

the last wicket, and the

points, with just four balls

left in the match.

The win puts Weedons

in second place, equal

with Sefton on 39pts with

six wins each from 11

played.

The top four is starting

to take shape after solid

wins for Sefton and

Cheviot on Saturday.

A crucial win at

the toss by home side

Cheviot helped set up a

commanding win over

Oxford-Rangiora.

After being sent in, the

combined side struggled

facing the young,

disciplined bowling attack

on a dampish wicket and

were all out for 83, with

just Dave Fulton showing

any resistance, stranded on

34 not out.

Oxford-Rangiora felt

they had a chance of an

upset when they had

Cheviot 6/3 in reply.

But Jack Harris came

out and smashed 32 in

quick time while George

Waddy steadied the ship

and guided the Magpies

home with a 25 not out

that earned him man of

the match honours.

Composed batting on a

difficult wicket and slow

outfield was key to Sefton

taking points over rivals

Southbrook.

The experienced pair of

Brent Fleming and Harley

James built the innings

before accelerating under

the tricky conditions to a

total of 170/5.

The ‘Brook looked to be

positive in reply but once

their openers were chipped

out, the innings declined

rapidly to be 55 for 7,

eventually staggering to be

all out for 103.

Tom Spall in just his

second match, claimed the

impressive figures of 3/15,

while Barry Cross was also

influential.

The Leeston-Southbridge

v Lincoln fixture was

rained off without a ball

being bowled.

Scoreboard:

Sefton 170/5 (B Fleming

59, H James 47, T Harrison

35) beat Southbrook 103

(T Spall 3/15, A Laffey 2/9,

Endless Summer

Fair to say our summer has been amazing and looks

set to continue for some time yet. it’s still well

worth taking advantage of the sale bargains

on offer to wear now or to put away for next

summer.

With record temperatures recorded it can

be difficult to know what to wear. it is a great

time to wear a skirt or dress which seem to be

the garments of choice in hot climates.

We have pictured a fab skirt which is casual

enough to wear for everyday but can be

dressed up for work or play. The denim colour

coordinates with almost everything else in

your wardrobe and the just below the knee

length pleases many. This Blackstone skirt

was $140 and is now $70. We have paired

it up with a versatile Pretty Basics white top

which is shorter at the front and has pretty

tuck pleat detail on the longer back ($99).

This ensemble looks great with Rollie rose

gold flat shoes now on sale for $132.

Another pretty and cool summer look is

shown here with the mint floral pleat

Random skirt. This is a strong look for

this summer and the skirt looks equally good

paired with sneakers for casual or worn with

heels for a dressy look (was $165 now $82.50).

The feminine and pretty navy top is a new arrival from

Augustine ($139). The minx navy heels tone beautifully with

the colours in the skirt and can take you anywhere, with a

fab little silver heel for comfort (now $122).

When the weather cools it pays to have a little

jacket on hand. We have pictured the bright and

stylish Zafina skyline jacket (was $169 now $84.50).

This cropped style looks perfect over dresses and

also with pants with a longer top underneath.

We have pictured the jacket with Vassalli pull

on jeans ($115) and a Charlo singlet ($119).

The funky circle necklace also works well

($59) and we have finished off this outfit

with the gorgeous and comfortable patent

leather navy mollini flats (now $179.90).

Another cool and floaty option for a hot

day is the Libertine Wild Poppy dress

in Navy spot. This style is ultra-flattering

around the middle with its cleverly

placed tuck detail (was $159.90

now $79.90).

Libertine is famous for their unique prints

and attention to detail. This powder blue

printed dress with off white overlay is both

comfortable and flattering and cool to wear.

The daisy print is fresh and feminine (was

$129.90 now a steal at $65). Wear with cute

flats or dress up with heels and you are ready

to head out the door.

All of the styles shown here are in store right

now at Viva La moda plus the new season’s

stock is starting to trickle in as well, so come

on in and get inspired. it’s a well known fact

that dressing well and looking great makes you

feel good too!

Follow the journey of Canty water

A BUS tour has been organised

to show the journey of water

from Lake Coleridge through the

Malvern Foothills over the past

100 years.

The project is part of a Hororata

Community Trust heritage

project.

On the tour, people will

discover how the ingenuity and

engineering of pioneers who set

out to make a living on the land

in 1840 still influences the area

today.

The heritage of a rural water

scheme tour will be on March

11 and will take people through

spectacular high country scenery

onto private land.

“Water has always been a

controversial topic, without it we

would not be able to farm or live

on this land. This tour is about

showing the evolution of open

water races for farm and town

supply to the efficiency of piping

the water,” said organising committee

member Gavin King.

“It was really quite a feat how

the water races were built 100

years ago by hand; their ability to

get the fall just right so the water

flowed from the source at the

Dry Acheron to the end users is

impressive, Mr King said.

On the tour people will be

taken behind the scenes onto private

land so they can really get

to see and understand how this

water scheme developed, he said.

KNOWLEDGE: The heritage of a rural water scheme tour

committee at the Dry Acheron intake. ​

Starting at the Hororata Domain

the tour will go through

Glentunnel and up to Windwhistle

where the Snowdon Water

scheme originates.

Local guides will provide

information during the tour on

the historic water scheme and

farming operations.

The tour will take detours onto

private farms to see the historic

intake and siphon.

Lunch will be in the Coleridge

village with a tour of the historic

Coleridge Power Station.

A number of heritage properties

will be open on the day for

those who do not wish to do the

bus tour.

Properties open include Terrace

Station, Gunyah Estate,

Coton’s Cottage and Museum,

Glentunnel Museum. Properties

will charge an entry fee at their

gate.

The event will take place on

March 11, departing the Hororata

Domain at 9.30am returning

4.30pm.

Tickets are $450 per person,

lunch is included.

People need to pre-register, no

ticket sales on the day.

•Details can be found at

www.hororata.org.nz or

phone Karen Meares on

3186 959.

Perfect weather greeted athletes taking part in

Rolleston College’s athletics day. The event was

held on Monday.

STAMINA: Ella Jarvis competing in shot put.

SOAR: Kaylee

Fire rages, homes at risk

SPRUCE UP:

The Arthur’s

Pass National

Park Visitor

Centre will

undergo

earthquake

strengthening

this year.

Quake repairs planned

for Arthur’s Pass centre

SIGNIFICANT earthquake

strengthening is set to be

undertaken on the Arthur’s Pass

National Park Visitor Centre.

The Department of

Conservation will complete the

strengthening this year.

Arthur’s Pass DOC senior

ranger Chris Stewart said a

seismic engineering survey in

2013 identified weakness in four

internal structural walls of the

building.

“As a precautionary measure,

these four walls were isolated,

reducing our visitor information

areas by about 40 per cent,” he

said.

Mr Stewart said DOC is

looking forward to being able to

provide improved conservation

and recreation information for

up to 120,000 visitors a year.

“The display area has not been

upgraded since 1992, so the team

is also keen to modernise how we

tell the stories of the

area’s spectacular natural

environment and history as well,”

he said.

The detailed design stage is

expected to be completed by mid-

April.

After the completion of the

design stage there, will be a three

to four month procurement

process with construction set to

start in September.

The plan is to open the new

centre early next year.

The building will be closed

during the refurbishment, and a

temporary visitor centre will be

set up nearby.

The draft concept designs are

available for the public to view

at the visitor centre or at DOC’s

Rangiora office.

Pollution check up

Who do you

call about dirty

waterways?

ENVIRONMENT: Waterwatch

Education Trust educator Errol

Wood with Lincoln children.

RESIDENTS concerned their

local river, stream or pond may

be polluted are urged to contact

the Waterwatch Education

Trust.

For more than 20 years,

Waterwatch has operated as an

outreach programme of Lincoln

University for school pupils and

students in years 7-13, and for

communities in Canterbury.

The programme takes groups

to their local waterway to assess

its condition with respect to

aquatic life, and determine the

chemical, physical and biological

status of the water.

The programme has received

significant annual funding

for many years from the Rata

Foundation.

This funding, plus the support

of Lincoln University, has enabled

Waterwatch to be delivered

at no charge to schools and

community groups.

Recently, following changes at

Lincoln University, Waterwatch

has become a charitable trust.

Waterwatch trustee Sue Jarvis

said the organisation is desperately

searching for a lockable

shed or old double garage to

store a vehicle and equipment.

She said the garage or shed

could be located on a rural

property around the Lincoln or

Prebbleton area.

The organisation operates

with up to six kits of equipment,

worth about $6000 each.

The kits provide nets, waders,

gumboots, buckets, specimen

trays and identification charts

that are used to catch and identify

aquatic macro-invertebrates,

which can be used to assess the

health of the stream.

Most of the excursions

are conducted for

school science, biology

and geography classes,

but there has recently

been increased uptake

from agriculture and

horticulture teachers too.

The organisation can

work with schools to

incorporate waterway

research into their NCEA

assessment tasks at all

levels.

The organisation

also attend events

organised by community

or farmer groups to

introduce them to water

monitoring techniques

and how we might

help them to investigate their

waterways. It is currently

assisting a rural group near

Kaiapoi to regularly monitor

their local stream.

SELWYN TIMES

Interested in heritage items and

protected trees in our district?

Come along to our upcoming drop-in sessions and talk to one of

our staff about the Selwyn District Plan Review and its implications

for you.

You can also talk to our staff about current protected trees and

heritage items, such as heritage buildings, places and monuments,

and how you can have a say on additional heritage items to be

included in the new District Plan.

Four drop-in sessions will be held in the following locations (all

sessions run from 3.30–6.30pm):

A new timber bridge in the Lincoln Esplanade Reserve will soon be dropped onto Liffey Stream.

This will provide a new pedestrian link between Moffat Drive and Ryelands Drive.

The three-year staged project began last year with the construction of the pedestrian link adjacent

to the former country club, which is presently the Lincoln Primary School Junior satellite campus.

The timber bridge and associated pathway links are the second stage of works to be undertaken.

Hunter Civil project management and construction have built the timber bridge offsite, and expect

to crane the three sections of the 32m bridge onto four central piles in about three weeks’ time.

Works are scheduled to be finished by late March 2018.

Council Land Development Project Manager Phil Millar says the Lincoln Community Committee

have been very supportive of increasing the accessibility and linkages through the Esplanade

Reserve, and that the additional linkages will have huge recreational benefits for the community.

“It’s been fantastic for the Council to work closely with the Community Committee on this project.

“The bridge will increase connectivity between the two sides of Liffey Stream and enable great

views up and down Esplanade Reserve,” he says.

Cemeteries clean up

New Lincoln bridge

set to drop in

The Council aims to keep the district’s cemeteries in a condition where all visitors can have a respectful

and peaceful place to remember their loved ones.

We’re currently contacting families with burial plots in Selwyn district cemeteries that do not comply

with the Cemetery Bylaw due to the placement of adornments. We’re asking that these families remove

any adornments placed outside of grave surrounds or on grassed areas in front of head stones so that

the graves comply.

Items or adornments placed on the grave beam are fine and do not need to be removed.

Examples of items found outside grave surrounds and on grassed areas include fairy lights, candy

canes, extra soil, planted flowers, rocks, flower receptacles, cans and bottles of alcohol which can

result in broken glass. These items are a hazard for maintenance contractors and other cemetery users.

We began this clean-up process at Prebbleton Cemetery and we’re now working on Shands Road

Cemetery. Families that receive a letter from us have a month from the date of the letter to remove or

shift items from outside grave surrounds or grassed area.

If families haven’t had a chance to remove or shift items within the time frame, Council contractors will

remove and safely store the items for one month from the date of being removed from the grave site.

Family members can contact us and organise to pick them up at a time which suits them.

We fully appreciate the grief involved in the loss of a loved one. We are working to maintain the

cemeteries in a way that is respectful for all those visiting the cemeteries.

We would like to thank the families that we have contacted so far for their understanding and

cooperation during this process.

Progress on Council projects

Council is busy working on a number of building projects for

the Selwyn community. Read about the progress of some of the

major projects.

West Melton Community Centre

This project is progressing on schedule and is expected to be

completed in November 2018. The floor pad has been poured and

currently framing is being erected. The existing hall is still operating

and available to the community. It will be demolished in the final

quarter of this year to allow landscaping and car parking for the

new facility to be completed. The new facility features meeting and

function space, an indoor sports court, space for playcentre, scouts

and other community groups, changing and toilet facilities.

Tai Tapu Community Centre

Located on Rhodes Park this facility has been designed as a

combined sports and community centre. It features three separate

function spaces (that can be used together if required) that will allow

sports and community functions to be held at the same time. It also

features meeting space, good quality kitchen and bar facilities, a

large outside covered terrace and new changing room and toilet

facilities for the park. The changing rooms are nearly complete and

the roof is currently going on the Community Centre building. This

project is planned to be completed by June this year.

Springston and Ladbrooks Community Halls

Both of these halls required repairs and strengthening work as a

result of earthquake damage. Work has now been completed on

both halls and they have been brought up to standard with regard to

modern building code requirements.

Foster Park Playground

This facility opened over the Christmas period and has proven

to be exceptionally popular. Some completion work involving the

installation of junior play equipment and completion of landscaping

is planned for late March. This may involve a short closure of the

facility to enable this work to be completed.

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads this week

Stabilised seal repairs will be occurring on Hororata Road and Leaches Road. Island

repair and drainage works will occur on Othello Drive. A road reconstruction will be

carried out on Southbridge Leeston Road. Reseals will be carried out on Knights

Road, Dawsons Road and Curraghs Road. Drainage repairs will be occur on

Waimakariri Gorge Road. Please stop on request at these sites.

An intersection upgrade including traffic lights, cycle lanes and footpaths (both

separate and shared), as well as storm water work and road resurfacing will be carried out at the

Masefield Drive/Rolleston Drive intersection in Rolleston.

Footpath reconstructions will be carried out on Cathcart Crescent. This footpath will be closed during

these works.

PEST: Whitefly

adults, pupae

and larvae.

Whitefly

Trialeurodes

vaporariorum

is a danger to

many plants.

Significant greenhouse pest

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

THE MOST significant

greenhouse pest in New Zealand

is the whitefly Trialeurodes

vaporariorum.

The cosmopolitan species is

also a pest of outdoor plants

including pumpkin, cucumbers,

zucchini, tomatoes, potatoes,

peppers, beans and begonias, to

name a few.

The adults are 1.5mm long

with waxy white wings and yellow

bodies.

Eggs are yellow and laid singly,

usually on the underside of leaves.

These hatch into oval shaped,

creamy-to-yellow coloured

nymphs.

These and adults suck the sap

from the their hosts and produce

honeydew in a similar way to

aphids.

They can produce large

populations that fly off leaves

in clouds of whitefly when disturbed

and can severely reduce

plant vigor.

A whitefly parasite from

Britain and the Netherlands was

introduced in the 1930s and can

successfully control whitefly in

greenhouses, but requires careful

management.

The parasites, Encarsia formosa,

are approximately 0.6mm

long and have a black thorax and

bright yellow abdomen.

The parasites can lay 50-100

Milk processor welcomes new

member of senior leadership team

Synlait is adding a new member to its

senior leadership team on April 1, when Dr

Suzan Horst takes up the role of director of

quality, regulatory and laboratory services.

Managing director and CEO John Penno

says Dr Horst is a leading authority in the

global dairy industry and has much to offer

Synlait.

“Suzan’s executive experience with

large multinational dairy companies

complements the breadth of leadership and

commercial capability we already have in

our senior team,” Mr Penno says.

“Our organisation will be in an even

stronger position as a result of Suzan’s

expertise, which is defined by her extensive

oversight of food safety in infant formula

and fresh consumer dairy products.

“Suzan’s role is significant and carries

considerable responsibility across our value

chain,” he says.

“Having the right food safety systems and

risk management in place throughout the

business is critical.

“Not only do we repeatedly test all

facilities, raw materials and finished

products, but we also have a full quality

assurance and traceability programme for

everything we produce.”

Synlait’s quality testing laboratory, which

was commissioned in 2015 and consists of

Dr Suzan Horst, Director

of Quality, Regulatory and

Laboratory Services

chemistry and microbiology laboratories,

carries out almost 200,000 tests a year.

“Our on-site laboratory gives us

greater control and visibility around our

products, as well as the benefit of having

substantial technical competence within

the organisation,” Mr Penno says.

Synlait also plays a leading role in

providing market access for customers and

securing regulatory approval for products,

which means Dr Horst’s position will also

have an international regulatory focus.

“As we become a more diversified and

balanced business, Suzan will ensure we

continue to have the right capability in all

of these areas.”

“This underpins the integrity and

confidence in food safety we provide to not

just our customers, but their consumers as

well.”

Dr Horst says she feels “really honoured”

to join the Synlait team.

“The company has an impressive track

record over the last decade and has exciting

plans for the future.

“It’s great that sustaining the high

performance of quality, regulatory and

laboratory services is defined by the senior

team as a critical factor for the ongoing

success of the company, especially as our

portfolio becomes more diversified.

“I look forward to supporting the

company in building and maintaining solid

quality systems that result in safe products

and highly satisfied customers,” Dr Horst

says.

Dr Horst is currently director quality

affairs, business group EMEA (Europe,

the Middle East and Africa) for

FrieslandCampina. She has held other

senior roles since joining them in 2005,

including director corporate QA, crisis and

issue management and corporate quality

assurance manager.

Prior to joining FrieslandCampina, Dr

Horst was global food safety competence

manager for Nutreco B V and lectured

agricultural economics and food safety

before that.

Dr Horst holds a Ph.D. in Agricultural

Economics and a Bachelor of Science in

Animal Husbandry from the Wageningen

University and Research Centre in the

Netherlands, part of which involved study

at Massey University in New Zealand.

The company has

an impressive track

record over the last

decade and has

exciting plans for

the future.

Potential Chilean needle grass

control under consideration

New Zealand farming’s vulnerability to Chilean needle

grass may be reduced if an application to release a rust

fungus from Argentina wins approval.

Chilean needle grass is found at some

300 sites in New Zealand, covering around

4000 hectares. But research suggests up to

15 million hectares may be potentially at

risk.

Chilean needle grass is common in

Australia, where it has caused production

losses of up to 25 per cent in infested

pastures. It displaces other types of grass,

but is less palatable and nutritious to stock.

The grass also reduces the sale value of

stock. Its sharply pointed seeds bore into

the skins of grazing animals, damaging

the pelt and reducing carcass value. It can

also cause distressing wounds, sometimes

blinding lambs and injuring farm dogs.

Marlborough District Council has

applied to introduce the rust fungus on

behalf of a consortium of regional councils

and the Department of Conservation.

The fungus – Uromyces pencanus –

infects the leaves of Chilean needle grass

and competes with them for nutrients, with

debilitating effects. Its spores spread rapidly

on the wind.

A year-long study in Argentina found

the fungus did not spread to plants other

than the target needle grass. Other research

suggests there is no direct threat to nontarget

plants in New Zealand, so no native

or ornamental plants would be at risk.

This rust is unlike myrtle rust, which

infects a wide range of plant host species

within the Myrtaceae family. Myrtle rust

arrived accidentally in New Zealand,

whereas the introduction of U. pencanus

would be intentional for a defined purpose

– to control the invasive plant, Chilean

needle grass.

The Environmental Protection Authority

will consider the risks and benefits before

any decision is made to release the rust in

New Zealand.

2018 and will close on

Gardening

gardening without guesswork

Question:

How do I know when it is time to dig up my potatoes? I don’t

want to over-water them and then they rot in the ground!

Depending on the soil type, potatoes

Answer: may be left in the ground and lifted as

needed once they have dried off their

tops (this applies mainly to main crop potatoes from late March

onwards). Some early potatoes may regrow if left in the ground

in the summer time. Often people will leave their potatoes in the

ground and only dig as needed.

They find that they seem to keep better this way. As long as the

crop has not been infected with any blight, you should find that it

doesn’t rot.

There are a couple of telling signs to indicate that it is time to stop

watering your potatoes. The potatoes will have large tops and have

finished flowering. The lower leaves will start to go yellow which

means that the growing cycle has reached maturity and the tops are dying off. This is the time to

stop watering. If you are wanting to use that area for new crops, then you would need to remove the

potatoes by the end of August. Additionally, if the ground is very heavy or prone to water logging then

you will want to lift the crop before the winter weather makes the soil too wet and cold.

Preparing the ground after potatoes

Once you have dug up your potatoes you will want to

prepare the ground for new planting. Add some organic

compost and some fertiliser to the soil to make the growing

environment ready for the next lot of crops. You can still

plant any brassicas, leeks and dwarf beans now.

Visit us this weekend for Devonshire Tea and the opening of the Club House

Community Centre at Lady Wigram Retirement Village. The Club House

is a centerpiece for Lady Wigram with restaurant, bar, billiard room,

movie theatre and library. These will be offically opened by Wigram MP

the Hon Dr Megan Woods at 2.00pm on Saturday.

The development of the second stage of the Club House which will include a

swimming pool, spa and gymnasium is due for completion later in 2018 to make

Lady Wigram Retirement Village facilities second to none. Whether you’re looking for

a serviced apartment or a single story villa mixed with luxury resort style facilities,

you have an abundance of choice at Lady Wigram Retirement Village.

Open Day

10.00am – 4.00pm

10 & 11 February, 2018

Prestige Accommodation

and Fine Living

Established in 1985 the Golden Healthcare

Group is now one of New Zealand’s largest

privately owned healthcare business. We

recognise the changing nature of retirement

villages with the move towards established

safe and secure communities and the need

for onsite expanded facilities.

Buy With Confidence

Development by Golden Healthcare Group,

which is one of the largest privately owned

aged care company in New Zealand.

Comfortable Living

Villas are two bedrooms and have an

attached garage whilst apartments are a

combination of one and two bedrooms.

Easy Access

Access around the village is by roadways and

walkways, and it is close to Wigram Air Force

Museum and The Landing Shopping Centre.

“In our experience, many people are

choosing to move into accommodations such

as Lady Wigram because they recognise

the benefits of the ease of living and it

allows them greater freedom and more

social interaction”

History Meets Contemporary This exceptional property graphically showcases inspiring

excellence through tasteful restoration. Greet guests in a grand tiled entrance before ushering

them into choices of formal lounge, dining or casual living for an evening’s entertainment. Upper

levels feature 4 exquisitely detailed bedrooms, the master incorporating ensuite with wall-to-wall

fameless glass shower and a lower level office presenting options for a 5th bedroom. Occupied

of history in one of Christchurch’s most established and prestigious pockets. With owners

downsizing, instructions are clear, this home must be sold!
