THAT’S ONE heck of a lucky escape on

our front page today.

Two young guys managed to get out of

the wreck before it caught fire.

How they were able to escape from

their ute is remarkable. The photo shows

it upside down (it somersaulted after colliding with another

vehicle).

The family in the other vehicle were also lucky.

But the crash again underlines how we need to be careful on

the district’s roads.

Traffic volume has increased substantially but at the end of

the day it is the driver not the road which causes crashes.

And if you’re wondering, the ad at the bottom of page 1 is

Abbeyfield volunteers

call for council to write off loan

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE VOLUNTEERS behind

Selwyn’s first Abbeyfield social

housing complex are asking the

district council to write off its

loan to help reduce debt.

The much-awaited retirement

complex was officially opened

on Flannery

St, Leeston

recently – after

taking more

than nine years

to complete.

The district

council loaned

John Morten

$400,000 to get the project off

the ground.

While ongoing fundraising

has enabled the volunteer committee

to repay $150,000 to the

district council – it is asking the

rest of the $250,000 is written off

as a loan.

As a result, a staff report will

be presented to the district

council and the funding will be

considered as part of the its Long

Term Plan 2018-2028 process.

In a deputation last week, trust

chairman Murray Stevens said

the grant will ensure the success

council to write off a loan to the complex.

of the project and signal to other

like-minded groups projects

such as Abbeyfield is practical

and achievable.

The volunteer committee’s

main concern was keeping the

rent for the 14 residents at a cost

of 80 per cent for their supersuperannuation.

The committee’s pool of

money will also go towards

paying a housekeeper, providing

provisions for the complex and

maintenance.

“We feel for the good of the

project we would like to reduce

the debt,” Mr Stevens said.

He said the repayment to the

district council was the only

debt outstanding.

Residents pay $364 a week and

is provided two cooked meals a

day and general support.

But the request to write off the

loan has had mixed reactions

from district councillors.

District councillor Mark

Alexander said while he was

not unsupportive of the project,

he needed to understand how

writing a loan off fits in with the

council’s district wide responsibilities.

“When the council makes a

loan it is not always helpful if the

recipients of the loan come back

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 3 MARCH 2018

and say can you write it off?” he

said.

He said a lot of groups doing

good things often ask the district

council for loans.

Mr Alexander said if all the

groups asked for their loans to

be written off, it would be difficult

for the district council to

survive financially.

District councillor John

Morten said it is not the right

decision to give out money

“because groups come along and

make an emotional presentation

to council.”

“You decide you need to react

to that and give away money.

You just don’t work like that and

life is just not like that,” he said.

The project cost $2.6 million

and core funding was obtained

as grants from the Rata Foundation

and Housing New Zealand.

It was confirmed at the meeting,

if the Abbeyfield venture

was to fail it would become the

property of the district council.

The district council is planning

the district council attempted

Lincoln Fire Station celebrates

Many volunteer

firefighters have served

at the Lincoln Fire

Station over the last

five decades. Georgia

O’Connor-Harding caught

up with some of them

ahead of the building’s

50th anniversary

ONE OF the busiest fire brigades

in Selwyn has celebrated another

milestone.

The Lincoln Fire Station has

been serving the Lincoln Volunteer

Fire Brigade for 50 years

with its official anniversary on

Saturday.

The station was opened at

James St on February 17, 1968.

The building was given the

green-light by the Ellesmere

County Council and the cost of

construction was £6939.

The brigade was established in

1963 and recently celebrated its

50th jubilee at the Lincoln Event

Centre in October 2013.

Former firefighter Jack Bond,

who joined the brigade in about

1966, recalls the new station

making “a lot of difference” for

the firefighters when it was first

constructed.

The brigade was originally

stationed at a building known as

W.A Habgood’s hardware store.

Its use was offered to the brigade

by Pyne Gould Guinness Ltd

until April 1964. The owner, W.A

Habgood Ltd, then allowed the

brigade to continue occupying

the premises as a temporary fire

station until the new station was

built.

Said Mr Bond: “We didn’t have

a station to start with – we had a

shed. They allowed us to put our

appliance in and another shed

on the other side of the road was

where we stored all of our equipment,”

he said.

While Mr Bond, 87, said he

didn’t have a role in the construction

of the station, he was

involved in helping clear away

shrub vegetation and trees at

James St.

REMINISCE: Former

firefighter and life honorary

member Jack Bond was in

the Lincoln Volunteer Fire

Brigade when its station was

built 50 years ago.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

He said he had seen several

alterations to the building over

the years as well as changes within

the brigade. The alterations

included extending the kitchen

out the back of the building, and

workshops on the side of the

building were converted into

offices.

Mr Bond, who is a life honorary

member, left the brigade in

1987 after serving for nearly 20

years.

He said being in the fire

brigade wasn’t as “full-on” as it

is now – especially considering

how many motor vehicle accidents

and medical emergencies

firefighters now attend.

The brigade’s longest serving

firefighter, Stephen Paston, who

has worked out of the station

for 41 years, said the increase

in vehicle accidents was a key

reason the brigade had grown in

volunteer numbers.

“When I joined, there was only

about 18-20 members. Now we

are looking at about close to 40,”

he said.

But Mr Paston said in the

brigade’s early years, while there

probably were a lot of car accidents,

the difference was the

brigade didn’t have the rescue

equipment it has now.

Last year, the brigade was the

first in the country to get a new

appliance featuring the new Fire

and Emergency New Zealand

branding.

READY FOR ACTION:

from left) with his

fellow brigade

members outside

the station in 1971.

Behind them is

the Bedford OLB

appliance (left) and

the Dodge Kew on

loan from Lincoln

College.

The appliance was designed

to respond to vehicle crashes

and carries significant specialist

equipment as well as medical

supplies. Mr Paston said the

brigade has received four brand

new appliances in his time at the

station – including three Iveco

vehicles and a Hino.

The brigade has responded to

many major emergencies over

the years, including the Selwyn

Rd fire in 2013, the Canterbury

earthquakes and Port Hills fire.

Chief fire officer Jeremy Greenwood

said the station’s 50th was

a milestone worth celebrating.

He said the station was originally

built for a membership of

15-20, but alterations over the

years have kept it fit for purpose.

The brigade will celebrate the

anniversary with a barbecue at

the station on Saturday.

WIGRAM MP Megan Woods

It comes after a meeting with

residents last week.

Dr Woods said she and Ms

Sage will be seeking advice on a

variety of options over the coming

“Once we have received that

advice we will update the residents,”

she said.

This follows news that Fulton

Hogan will not be developing

another quarry in spite of

speculation, 115ha in size, on

Dawsons, Maddisons and Jones

Rds.

The firm has a licence to carry

out exploratory work on the city

council-owned land.

But the company has confirmed

the “nearby block of

land owned by the city council

does not form part of the

preparations for the Dawsons

Rd proposal and Fulton Hogan

has no plans to apply to put a

quarry there.”

Fulton Hogan already has

Dr Woods said it was a productive

meeting where she and

Ms Sage could listen first hand

to the concerns of residents.

Templeton and Weedons

residents have expressed their

concerns about the health risks,

water issues and the devaluing

in the past couple of months.

Fulton Hogan’s South Island

told Selwyn Times the company

will “support public notification

which will enable residents and

Templeton Residents’ Association

limit review

set to start

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A REVIEW of speed limits outside

schools across Selwyn is set to get under

way.

The district council is planning to

review all schools in the first half of this

year – with it expected to be completed by

the end of June.

But district councillor Craig Watson

is concerned road safety issues

outside West Rolleston Primary

School cannot be stalled any

longer.

It comes as the district council

approved last week to keep speed

limits at 100km/h on several key

arterial routes in Selwyn.

These roads include Shands Rd

(from Selwyn Rd to Boundary

Rd), Springs Rd (from Hamptons

Rd to Ellesmere Junction Rd), and

Selwyn Rd (from Shands Rd to

Lincoln Rolleston Rd).

Lincoln Rolleston Rd (from

Branthwaite Drive to Selwyn Rd)

will also remain at 100km/h.

The changes were made after a

review of the speed limits began

in August.

The district council’s assets

manager Murray Washington said

the New Zealand Transport Agency

supported the reduction to 80km/h on

rural roads in general but arterial roads

should remain 100km/h.

At the district council’s December

meeting it was decided the speed limit

bylaw review would be partially re-opened

to re-look at the arterial roads.

It was also re-opened after Cr Watson

raised concerns that submissions were lost

because the district council’s email system

Craig Watson

Pat McEvedy

was not set up sufficiently.

He told Selwyn Times while those who

submitted through the district council’s

online process were fine, those who

emailed in their submissions were lost.

One of the submissions lost was from

West Rolleston Primary School – which

Cr Watson’s daughter attends.

He said he was uncomfortable work to

reduce safety issues outside the school will

be furthered delayed as a result.

“It is unfair to put them with

a bunch of other schools where

there is known safety issues.

“While I understand that (the

review) is going to happen later

this year, I am really uncomfortable

for the families . . . they didn’t

get the opportunity to be heard

and we aren’t mitigating the risk

as fast as we should be,” Cr Watson

said.

West Rolleston Primary

School is located on the corner of

Burnham School Rd and Dunns

Crossing Rd.

While the speed limit on Dunns

Crossing Rd is 50km/h, Burnham

School Rd is 100km/ph leading up

to the school.

“It hits 50km/ph at the point

of the school which isn’t good

enough,” Cr Watson said.

District councillor Pat McEvedy said reviewing

the speed limit outside the school

is a “no brainer” and it is important school

children are safe.

Group helping people in need

Readers respond to the

Selwyn Times’ article on a

major redevelopment of

Darfield’s Four Square

Ellesmere

Community

Care

chairwoman

June

McLachlan

writes about

the work a

group of volunteers in

Leeston do to help assist

people in need

Like every community,

Ellesmere has unique needs.

The most obvious being

isolation and an ageing

population.

Without a public bus service,

and often without friends or

family available to assist, many

of our older persons would

struggle to attend medical

appointments, jeopardising

their health.

This is where Ellesmere

Community Care comes into its

own.

Established nearly 25

years ago, ECC is a group of

volunteers based in Leeston,

which primarily exists to help

people in need in Ellesmere.

Invariably that need is for

transport to medical-related

appointments in and around

Christchurch, but increasingly,

they find themselves using

the skills and resources the

NEIGHBOURLY: Ellesmere Community Care chairwoman

June McLachlan (left) and vice-chairwoman Heather

Cochrane with the Ellesmere community vehicle. ​

volunteers bring to the group, to

meet other needs.

Besides driving, ECC

volunteers are involved with

home share, buddying at

Ellesmere College, family

assistance, mentoring, driver

training, the occasional working

bee and connecting individuals

with the specialist agencies that

work closely with ECC.

The Ellesmere Community

Vehicle Trust provides a vehicle

for ECC to use (ECC pays

mileage), and other generous

supporters of ECC are Ellesmere

Lions, Rata Foundation, COGS

and individual donors (clients

are encouraged to contribute

towards the cost of each drive).

In recent years Community

Energy Action buddied with

ECC to promote and install

subsidised insulation for lower

income families.

Currently ECC are working

with other Selwyn care groups

and the district council to

produce and maintain the new

“Everything Selwyn” website

which promotes the many

smaller communities and all the

attractions, events and services

that make Selwyn such a great

place to live in and visit.

The new Abbeyfield complex

in Leeston also helps meet the

needs of our ageing population,

with 14 residents now enjoying

companionship, affordable

living, healthy eating, a warm

home and their independence.

ECC is already enjoying the

convenience of working with

numerous clients at the one

address.

The ECC committee is heavily

reliant on the voluntary services

of retired people, with 15

regular drivers/volunteers.

The services ECC can offer the

community, are only limited by

the skills, time and energy of its

volunteers.

So it is hoped that some

younger persons may consider

connecting with the team and

sharing their skills or resources

with the community.

•If you are interested in

using ECC services, or

considering volunteering,

please phone ECC 324 4080

and speak with the duty

volunteer.

Bill Smith – What a pleasant

surprise to read about this new

development, but it is not before

time, unfortunately West Melton

beat Darfield to it. I sincerely

hope that Kelvin and Delwyn

think about future-proofing the

establishment and I would like to

think that Roger Davidson will

have this covered in the planning

stage – it is noted the inclusion of

generator plugs which are being

installed. I just hope that all avenues

are covered and no overspend

or time delay will affect the

completion of this new establishment.

I look forward to the grand

opening.

Linda Creed – Please put

the car park behind the building.

Prioritise access for pedestrians

and cyclists, and have an attractive

frontage over vehicles please,

most of us don’t need to drive

to the door. Add some shade

trees and well-tended landscaping

to blend with the streetscape

(so often neglected after the

initial build excitement is over).

Darfield is already looking ad

hoc and un-coordinated from the

main road. The parking and pedestrian

routes on the main road

are confusing. The cherry trees

and banners add some continuity.

Please work with that.

IT’S EXTREME!

Complex enhances quality of life

Readers respond to the

Lincoln Primary School

adjusting its automatic

door closing mechanism

was caught between one

of its classroom’s doors

Saphire Burbery – This absolutely

disgusting. And I hope

the wee girl gets compensated.

Just terrible.

Hamish Middleton – How

long have they been commenting

how dangerous the door is

before the incident?

Selwyn MP Amy Adams

writes about the opening

of the Abbeyfield housing

complex in Ellesmere

RECENTLY I was asked to

officially open Abbeyfield

Ellesmere in Leeston.

This is the first Abbeyfield

residence to have been built in

Selwyn and I hope that it will be

followed by others.

For those readers who are

not familiar with the concept

of an Abbeyfield House, it is a

model of shared accommodation

specifically for people over the

age of 65.

Abbeyfield New Zealand is a

charity which aims to enhance

the quality of life for older

people by providing secure and

affordable housing.

Abbeyfield homes are already

well-established around New

Zealand in both the North and

South Islands, and there is one in

Hornby.

Abbeyfield houses are

designed to accommodate nine

to 14 residents, living in a flatting

type situation.

Residents have their own

rooms and share communal

living areas, giving them the

opportunity for companionship

but also the ability to maintain

their independence and dignity.

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

OPEN: One of several units available to residents living at

Abbeyfield.

We know from surveys

and anecdotal evidence that

many seniors struggle with

loneliness and find managing

a large property on their own a

burden.

The residents of Abbeyfield

Ellesmere that I chatted to

mentioned that they valued the

opportunity to socialise with

others while still maintaining

their ability to come and go

independently.

Under the Abbeyfield

model, meals are prepared by a

housekeeper.

A number of residents also

indicated that having a fixed

weekly cost to cover all household

expenses without the chore of

buying groceries and cooking

meals or the worry of unexpected

maintenance or power bills was a

great relief to them.

I believe that as we live longer

and healthier lives, this model

of shared accommodation will

become more and more popular

for those in their later years.

Research into this area

has shown that older New

Zealanders living in shared

accommodation such as

Abbeyfield houses have far better

health outcomes than those

living on their own.

It is really important that

our older folk have the option

to remain in their own

communities near friends

and family rather than having

to move to bigger centres for

suitable accommodation in their

later years.

Abbeyfield Ellesmere is a

fantastic example of how the

community and voluntary

groups can develop and

implement housing solutions

that suit specific groups of

society.

Having purpose-built housing

solutions for our older citizens

not only helps to address issues

such as social isolation but it also

allows us to free up larger family

homes for younger families in

need of accommodation – a winwin

situation.

Rolleston

‘drown

him’ case:

Two

charged

• By Andrew King

A 15 and 16-year-old have been

charged with aggravated robbery

over the Rolleston ‘drown him’

case.

The 16-year-old appeared in

the Youth Court on February 13.

He was remanded without plea to

reappear next month. The 15-yearold

will appear today.

The alleged robbery took place

after a fireworks display on November

4.

The 15-year-old victim was allegedly

beaten and then dragged

to a water race where his head

was held under the water.

His assailants chanted “drown

him, drown him” during the

attack.

Police believe there were four

people in the group involved in

the incident, which started when

they allegedly tried to take the

victim’s cap.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

GIFTED WRITER Colin

Patterson – who was recognised

with a top poetry prize at the

Christchurch Writers Festival –

has died in Leeston.

Mr Patterson died of a

suspected sudden heart

attack last week on Valentine’s

Day.

For years, he spent hours at a

time, sitting making up poems

and stories in his head while

sitting on the tractor at his farm

near Leeston.

His talent for writing remained

largely a hidden secret

until his family encouraged

him to enter the Christchurch

Writer’s Festival.

In 2016, Selwyn Times profiled

Mr Patterson. He was asked

about where his inspiration for

writing came from, his health

scare in 2007 and his love of

bagpipes.

Mr Patterson’s interest in poetry

began in the 1940s and 50s

and he began putting his own

work together in the 60s.

Hesaid when he was driving

up and down on his tractor, he

would memorise his poems and

would recite some of them at

family gatherings.

In 2006 he qualified for the

final 12 of the Christchurch

Writers Festival and described

winning the competition as a

“tremendous shock.”

He said the reason he had kept

his talent a secret for so long was

because he was “extremely shy”

and getting up in front of

a crowd was “very, very

daunting.”

Mr Patterson was diagnosed

with what was thought to be

pancreatic cancer and he began

writing and publishing his poems

on paper.

His book From Patterson’s

Heart was to be his memoir,

before he learnt he had been

wrongly diagnosed.

It was later found Mr Patterson

did not have cancer and the

tumour had been caused by his

own immune system attacking

his pancreas.

He taught the bagpipes and

played in the Ellesmere pipe

band from 1953.

Mr Patterson’s grandfather

was a trustee of the Ellesmere

Pipe Band when it was formed

in about 1920. His father was on

the committee and his brothers

learnt and went into the band

after it reformed after the war in

1946.

Heritage of Water Bus Tour promises to

be an informative and entertaining day

As part of the Hororata Community Trust heritage project a bus tour has been

organised that follows the journey of water from Lake Coleridge through the

Malvern Foothills over the past 100 years. 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.

Without the foresight of the pioneers in South Malvern 100 years ago to

establish a water scheme the development of this area would not have

happened. Water is the life blood of this district, not just for farming but for

all of the industries and rural settlements.

This tour will show the evolution of open water races for farm and town

supply to the efficiency of piping the water, while taking people onto private

farms with spectacular high country scenery.

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. Then to maintain the

scheme was a considerable effort. It just shows that in this area has always

been innovative with how water is sourced and used.

Most people take water for granted, they just turn on the tap but someone

has to put the water into the tap and to get supply to this rural district takes

massive network which has been developed over the past century. On this

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.

Date: Sunday 11th March 2018

The Boulevard, Rolleston’s first retirement village providing the full continuum of care.

Construction underway on

Rolleston’s new retirement village

Building has started on Rolleston’s

first retirement village to offer the full

continuum of care for the elderly.

“It’s been a long journey so we’re really

excited to be at this stage,” advises Karen

Harris, who with husband Dean, will own

and operate The Boulevard.

With over thirty years’ industry

experience, Karen and Dean are known for

providing exceptional service in village, rest

home and hospital level care.

Karen says she has been overwhelmed by

the number of people who have expressed

interest in The Boulevard, which will be

constructed in stages.

“I’m excited about this development,”

says Grant England whose company GE

Construction will be completing the build.

Grant will also be a shareholder in The

Boulevard.

The first five villas are due for completion

late August at which time work on the

stage two villas will also be progressing.

The Boulevard will have 59 two and three

bedroom villas, 40 one and two bedroom

apartments, 20 care suites, and 58 hospital

rest home and dementia beds, and a large

community lodge with dining and lounge

areas, meeting/small function room, bar

and café, beautician/therapy clinic, gym,

library, computer nook and outdoor

sheltered courtyard.

“People love The Boulevard’s

architectural flair and diversity, its spacious

garden and wide street layout giving it a

normal sub-division feel and real sense of

community,” adds Karen.

Expressions of interest are continuing

with a limited number of stage one and

two villas still available and some future

residents having put

their names down

for stage three. As

interest is high, an

application will need

to be completed to

secure an interest in

any villa when the

village is registered

later in March.

“There’s enormous

need for a village

of this kind in

Rolleston,” suggests

Grant. “Since

starting work, we’ve

had a number of

people stop and

ask how they can

secure a villa, which

is really great. I’ll be ensuring the build is to

a very high standard so the village is future

proofed going forward, while the different

villa designs provide a point of difference.”

Many people are delighted The Boulevard

will allow them to live closer to their

family in a safe, secure and worry-free

environment while having the opportunity

to socialise, make friends and enjoy

outings, with fuller rest home and hospital

care, which will be available in the near

future. Garden and external maintenance

like window cleaning, lawn mowing and

gardening will all be taken care of, along

with rates and insurance payments

ensuring a relaxed enjoyable life.

The Boulevard is at 200 Dunns Crossing

Road, a five minute drive from Rolleston’s

shopping centre and handy to Faringdon’s

South Point.

Grant from GE Construction working the digger on site.

Watch out for The Boulevard’s

Seminar early March. Presented

by a lawyer and statutory

supervisor, it will cover the

legal aspects of moving into a

retirement village and is open

to anyone in the community.

For information about this seminar or

The Boulevard, check out our website

www.boulevardvillage.co.nz or call

Karen harris on 027 373 9463.

A sales office will soon be on site with

opening hours posted on The Boulevard’s

website.

The first villas are due for completion late August.

Our People Amy Adams

From lamb roast gravy to vying for

Selwyn MP Amy

Adams is vying to

become National’s

next leader. Bridget

Rutherford spoke to

her about why, farm

life, and who she would

poach from Labour

Why did you decide to stand

for the leadership position?

It all came about really quickly.

I wanted Bill English to carry

on. He’s an extraordinary leader

and had done an amazing job

campaigning. I don’t mind

admitting I rang him up and

pretty much begged him to

stay on. But I respected his

decision. When he made his

announcement, I was at home in

bed sick, but I got myself up to

Wellington and started talking

to colleagues and a number of

people rang me up and said: ‘You

need to stand’. My only goal is I

want National to win the 2020

election. When we had John

Key and Bill English, there was

no question in my mind they

were the best choice. I want to

make sure caucus has a range of

options to choose from, so I’m

going to give it everything I’ve

got.

It sent strong message of

support having four other MPs

behind you at the announcement.

I think all the contenders will

have their support in caucus.

Those MPs said they wanted to

be out there with me, and I was

really touched by that.

Why and when did you get

into politics?

I got into politics in 2008. It

was an odd step in some ways

because I hadn’t been political.

I had been a party member for

a couple of years but I wasn’t a

regular. I had an amazing mum

who used to say: ‘If you’re not

happy with something, you

should try do something about

it’. I was frustrated with the

direction the country was going

under Helen Clark and Labour. I

had a young family, so you start

thinking a lot more about what

sort of country they were going

to grow up in and I wanted to

make New Zealand a place they

wanted to base themselves.

How different is it now being

in the opposition party?

I don’t have the responsibility

and the intensity of when I

was carrying six big portfolios.

You don’t have the big box of

papers arrive on Friday nights

that had to be read before going

into Cabinet. But I’m every bit

as busy, it’s just different. We’re

working really hard to hold the

Government to account, but

also work out how we’re going

to take the party into the next

election. As an opposition,

you’re not there to criticise the

Government’s job, although we

will hold them to account, but we

are here to talk to New Zealand

about the vision we have for this

country, and how we’re going to

get it done.

When you were younger

could you ever have imagined

yourself as a politician?

No, 100 per cent not. Mum

kept a baby book and wrote stuff

in it that I had said and done.

When I was four I said I was going

to be a concert violinist and

be in government. I love debating

and I loved arguing, I was a

pretty stroppy and opinionated

child.

How long were you a lawyer

for?

Sixteen years. I grew up in

Auckland. At 17, I packed up

my Honda Civic and drove to

Christchurch to go to law school.

I had a brief stint in Invercargill

when I first left law school, but

I’ve basically always been a

Cantabrian. I moved back to

Christchurch and was doing

a range of work. I mostly did

property and commercial law,

relationship, property Resource

Management Act work and trust

law. It was an interesting transition

because as a lawyer, you

apply the law, and at times I got

frustrated about how the law was

set up. So the chance to change it

was pretty appealing.

Do you have any siblings?

I have a sister. My parents split

and my father remarried so I

have a half-brother and halfsister

who I get on really well

with too.

It’s quite the contrast – Auckland

and a farm in Selwyn. Was

it hard to get used to?

I never saw myself marrying

a farmer. I’ve always been into

animals, I love dogs, I always

say a house is not a home until

there’s a dog in it. I rode horses

a lot when I was younger as well.

But you fall in love with who you

fall in love with. Don and I have

been married for 22 years and I

can’t imagine anything else now.

In Canterbury you have the best

of both worlds. We’ve moved off

the farm now into West Melton

we still farm it, but you can live

in the country and can be so

close to the city and the airport.

Where did you and Don

meet?

It was at the Firehouse on Colombo

St when I was at uni. I had

gone out with a friend after some

law exams, and Don had been in

town for a farming seminar. We

met up and started talking and

he called me up the next day.

What kind of farm do you

have?

It’s called Montford. It’s a

sheep and crop farm predominantly.

It’s the family farm Don’s

mother grew up on. Farming’s in

his blood, he’s the fifth generation

farmer in the area. It’s near

Aylesbury.

the National Party’s top job

You’ve got two kids don’t you?

Yes. My son Tom is 20. He’s

a student at Lincoln University.

Lucy is 18 and she has just moved

into the halls at Canterbury

University. Lucy is studying

commerce and law, and Tom is

studying agriculture science.

Do either of them want to get

into politics?

I think watching me do it has

probably put them off (laughs).

But they are so supportive of

me and proud of what I’ve

done. When Bill English made

his announcement, they were

both there and I talked to them

and said should I put my name

forward? And they said: ‘Go for

it, mum’.

What do you like to do in your

spare time?

To be honest during the year

if I’m not working, I’m usually

pretty exhausted and want to be

at home quietly with the family. I

do a lot of reading and I’ve been

watching some Netflix shows. I

love good food and nice wine. I

love tennis and watching sport

and walking Poppy our springer

spaniel.

What Netflix shows have you

been watching?

I’ve been watching the second

season of The Crown, which I

love. The Fall is great, and Ozark.

And I’ve been watching Stranger

Things, but I’m not sure how I feel

about it just yet.

Do you still help out on the

farm?

I don’t a lot anymore, on the

weekends I’m usually out at community

events. I did back in the

day. The first thing I had to learn

marrying a farmer was how to

make a good gravy for the lamb

roast and a good batch of scones

for the shearers.

Why did you move off the

farm?

It was a range of things. The

kids were both at school in town,

and the house was getting old,

and we saw a house we loved in

West Melton.

Were you impacted by the

September 4, 2010, earthquake?

Yes, we were 1.5km from the

epicentre. We were really lucky

the ground was really solid. Our

house was an old 1915 bungalow.

There was quite a bit of inside

damage. As many others will

know after an earthquake, you

never quite trust your house the

same way. I remember lying in

bed when the earthquake hit and

had a flash of ‘that’s it, the house

is going to collapse on us’.

What ministerial portfolios

have you held in Parliament?

I was minister of internal

affairs, communication and

IT, environment, justice,

courts, social investment, social

housing and Housing New

Zealand, and associate minister

of Canterbury earthquake

recovery and finance.

Do you have a favourite?

That’s like trying to make me

pick my favourite child (laughs).

Each had their own challenges.

Three things that stand out to

me are in the communications

and IT space, the roll-out of ultra

fast broadband and better cell

connection. In the environment

space I put in place New Zealand’s

first ever national water

quality standards, which I’m incredibly

proud of. And the work

around family violence. There

were other big issues like resolving

the David Bain case after 22

years. No matter what you do, it’s

always going to be wrong to some

people.

The Teina Pora case was a big

one too.

Yes, Teina Pora had a horrific

experience. I was really proud to

be able to make a public apology

and public statement that he was

innocent. And I know that meant

a lot to Mr Pora.

You like to speak your mind.

Has that got you into trouble?

Nothing big. When you’re a

politician, every word you say

is scrutinised. People say to me

I’m a bit blunt or aggressive or

stroppy. But I say what I think,

I don’t hold grudges, and I like

people to be straight with me.

In 2016 you were described

as the Government’s best performer

and a “quiet achiever.”

How did that feel?

It was totally surprising and I

was thrilled. I’m not a politician

that’s spent a lot of time seeking

out a public profile. It was really

nice that putting your head down

and doing the hard yards was

noticed.

What’s something people

wouldn’t know about you.

IMPORTANT ROLE: Amy

Adams has been in Parliament

since 2008. She spends most

weekends at events in the

district, such as the Hororata

Highland Games.

I have school certificate in

Indonesian. I can’t remember

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Jonty Ward

KIRWEE’S Highfield Rd will

enter a time warp next month

with vintage machines arriving

from all over the South Island

to celebrate 20 years of the New

Zealand Vintage Machinery Club.

The Vintage Machinery and

Transport Show will be held on

the Brooker-family property

from March 23 to March 25.

Event co-ordinator Rae Horn

said it will host “a huge display of

all things vintage.”

“From the huge steam engines,

Show in Kirwee. ​

Machines gear up for vintage show

down to the smallest old spanner,

it’ll be there,” she said.

Working displays and parades

of equipment will be a chance

for exhibitors to show off their

pride and joy, and for visitors to

appreciate the hard work that has

gone into the restorations.

A vintage ploughing competition

will be held in a paddock

adjacent to the event, where both

horse teams and vintage tractors

will be put through their paces.

Treasures from the days of

New Zealand’s early settlers will

be on show, including household

items that will bring back memories

for many.

Craft and food stalls, along

with children’s entertainment in

the form of mini golf and bouncy

castles, will ensure there is plenty

for the whole family.

For anyone want ing to exhibit

at this event, anything is welcome.

“You don’t need to be a member

of any club or organisation,

just bring what you have along,”

Mrs Horn said.

•Residents can register their

exhibit using the registration

Walking journey for student

A UNITED States exchange

student has brought new

meaning the notion of walking

to school.

Connor Flechsig, of Colorado

State University, arrived in

Lincoln on Friday night after a

1470km tramp from Auckland

to Canterbury.

He was escorted onto campus

by an appreciative welcoming

committee, including Lincoln

University Students’ Association

president James Ranstead

and residential assistants from

Lincoln’s accommodation halls.

Mr Flechsig’s journey along

the Te Araroa Trail kicked off on

December 29 when he arrived

at Auckland Airport on a flight

from the US. A keen hiker, his

idea of “walking to school” came

about after he realised that the

trail was located near Auckland

Airport. Back home in

California, Mr Flechsig’s parents

tracked his movements on a

Google Earth Pro map.

Mr Flechsig says it was the

experience of a lifetime, as he

had the chance to meet many

friendly Kiwis along the way

and enjoy the “stunning scenic

trails” on both islands.

He’s hitting the ground running

as far as his studies are

concerned, his lectures started

yesterday.

Students cook up festival hamper idea

Field trip

fundraiser

at Selwyn

Sounds

TASTE: Lincoln High students

Angus Latham and Caelum

Betteridge with a small sample of

the goodies in the Selwyn Sounds

picnic hamper. ​Purchase a hamper

and go in the draw to win a meet

and greet with The Mockers after

they play at the festival.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FESTIVAL-GOERS heading to

Selwyn’s biggest music festival

next month can help a group of

students planning to travel to

Nepal.

Lincoln High School students

have teamed up with organisers

of Selwyn Sounds in a bid to

raise funds for their big expedition

overseas in December.

They are selling artisan-style

picnic hampers, which have been

put together by award-winning

chef Jo Rofe from Auckland.

Festival-goers who purchase

a picnic hamper will go in the

draw to win a meet and greet

with The Mockers after they play

at the day-long music festival in

Lincoln Domain on March 3.

More than 30 students from

years 10-12 and several teachers

will depart for Nepal as part of

a World Challenge expedition,

an organisation which provides

trips abroad for students.

The students plan to help the

communities of Nepal still recovering

from the 7.8-magnitude

quake which struck in April

2015. Each student will need to

raise about $8000 for the trip.

The Selwyn Sounds hampers

will comprise of various items

including Barrys Bay Canterbury

Red cheddar cheese and

She Universe’s sesame snap

chocolate. It will also feature the

hangi-flavoured chips designed

by a team of former Lincoln

High students and produced by

Heartland Potato Chips.

Assistant principal Kylie

Wissel said the school has received

amazing support from local

food and beverage suppliers.

She said businesses, including

She Universe, Aroha Drinks,

Heartland Potato Chips and

suppliers from Barrys Bay, were

willing to make costs as low as

possible to allow the students to

gain a good fundraising profit.

Selwyn Sounds promotor

David Parlane said the event is

down to its last 100 tickets, with

10,000 people expected to fill

the venue. As well as The Mockers,

the line up includes Jimmy

Barnes, Stellar, The Feelers, Mental

as Anything, The Narcs, The

Warratahs and The Lady Killers.

The hampers need to be

pre-ordered before Wednesday,

February 28. A hamper for two

people will cost $70, and one for

four people will cost $115.

Once pre-ordered, they can

be collected from the Lincoln

High tent at Selwyn Sounds on

the day. To buy a picnic hamper,

Backyard Critters

SELWYN TIMES

From garden weevils

to household moths

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

Weevils in the garden

I noticed recently that the

leaves of my capsicums in the

glasshouse were being munched

on by some unknown beast.

Closer inspection ensued

and the culprit was found – an

unknown weevil species.

I photographed it and loaded

it onto NatureWatchNZ and

within an hour or so an expert

had identified it as the fuller’s

rose weevil (naupactus cervinus).

This weevil is a pest species

worldwide, including in New

TROUBLE: The fuller’s rose weevil is a pest species worldwide, including in New Zealand. (Right) – To keep pesky

white-shouldered house moths out of your food items, ensure your containers are properly sealed. ​

Zealand, but is more often found

in the North Island.

Adults feed on many host

species including citrus,

strawberry, rhubarb, rose, potato,

beans, peach, zucchini and

capsicum.

Adults can reach 8.5mm long,

are flightless, and only females

are known.

This means reproduction

occurs without fertilisation, in a

process called parthenogenesis.

More than 200 yellow,

cylindrical, 1mm-long eggs are

laid in a mass on leaf litter, bark

crevices or in fruit.

Newly hatched larvae burrow

into the soil and feed on the

roots of grasses, clover and weed

species.

Moths in the pantry

Many moths attracted to an

outside light often have larval

hosts of plant species around

your backyard, but some moths

may come from within your

house.

The white-shouldered house

moth (endrosis sarcitrella)

larvae feed on old textiles, wool,

foodstuffs including cereal,

seeds, flour, wine corks and

vegetable refuse.

The larvae are white with a

brown head and reach 13mm in

length.

The moth is a cosmopolitan

species, found throughout New

Zealand.

Resting male and female

moths are 6 and 10mm long

respectively, and have a white

head and thorax.

Females lay 200 eggs at once

and take 62 to 235 days to reach

the moth stage, depending on

the temperature.

Adults do not feed, but survive

for about one month.

So, to keep these pesky moths

out of your food items, ensure

your containers are properly

sealed.

Speed limit changes

reflect district growth

Speed limits will change on a number of roads across the district during the coming weeks, after a

review late last year and public consultation which largely supported the changes.

Changes include extending the 50 km/hr urban speed limits in several townships and extending or

introducing 80 km/hr limits on some rural roads in eastern Selwyn.

The changes reflect the growth in townships across Selwyn and forecast subdivision development

– as our growing population is bringing with it a significant increase in traffic volumes.

“These changes will help ensure that our roading network remains safe for everybody, and that

speed limits encourage safe driving,” says Assets Manager Murray Washington.

Townships where lower speed limits will be introduced or extended include Castle Hill, Leeston,

Lincoln, Prebbleton, Rolleston, the Rolleston industrial area, and West Melton.

An 80 km/hr limit is to be introduced on rural roads adjoining the Christchurch city boundary,

including Maddisons Road and extending out to Tai Tapu, Lincoln and Rolleston. The 80 km/hr

speed limit on rural roads in the Prebbleton area will also be extended out to Lincoln and Rolleston.

A change from the original proposal is that speed limits will remain at 100 km/hr on four key

arterial commuter routes. These include Shands Road (Selwyn Road to Boundary Road), Springs

Road (Hamptons Road to Ellesmere Junction Road), Selwyn Road (Shands Road to Lincoln

Rolleston Road), and Lincoln Rolleston Road (Branthwaite Drive to Selwyn Road).

A further review of the remaining speed limits across the district will be undertaken over the

next four months. This will focus on 70 km/hr speed limits and limits in urban areas not already

reviewed, as well as speed limits around schools.

The new speed limits are planned to be implemented over the next six weeks, with new signs in

place by 31 March.

Full details and maps are available at: www.selwyn.govt.nz/speedlimitreview

Stay alert for fire risks

Selwyn remains in a restricted fire season, meaning all fires need a permit. The exception to this is

stubble burning which Fire and Emergency New Zealand has made an approved activity.

There are some hot, dry days forecast for the next few weeks and there is potential for a fire to occur.

Recent rain has promoted new vegetation growth in some areas of the district which will likely dry out

as summer continues, creating a potential fire hazard.

Please take extreme care with any activities which could create sparks and start a fire. This includes

grinding, welding, chainsawing and even mowing lawns on stony ground. If you're mowing grass, do

it during cooler conditions in the evening or early in the morning. General care

should be taken with any motorised or power tools, ensuring that they are well

maintained and not left where hot exhausts or working parts come into contact

with dry vegetation.

For further information visit checkitsalrightbeforeyoulight.co.nz.

Spotlight on heritage items –

Southbridge Hall

Southbridge Hall is listed as a heritage item in the Selwyn District

Plan. Built in 1930, it is a local landmark that carries a long

association with social and civic life. It replaced the township’s

original town hall which was built, along with the adjacent

Thompson Memorial Library, in 1873.

Designed by Christchurch architect Gordon Haines, the hall is

typical of the classical styling for civic buildings during the inter-war

period. It was built using ferro-concrete construction techniques by

Christchurch builder Frederick Musgrove, who also built St James’

Anglican church in Southbridge in 1934–35.

The site where the hall is situated is significant due to its

development and occupation since the 1870s.

As part of our District Plan Review we are reviewing the provisions

relating to heritage items, and looking at whether any other items

should be added.

Nominating a heritage item

If you know of a building or item you think should be listed as a

heritage item, you can nominate it for possible inclusion in the

proposed District Plan, which will be notified in 2020. Nominations

close at 5pm on Monday 5 March 2018.

Nomination does not automatically guarantee that an item will be

included in the proposed District Plan, but it will be given careful

consideration. For more information visit www.selwyndistrictplan.

co.nz/heritage-items

On the roads this week

Southbridge Hall

Stabilised seal repairs will be occurring on Hororata Road, Minchins

Road and Leaches Road.

A road reconstruction will be carried out at the Sleemans Road and

Leaches Road intersection. Reseals will be carried out on Leaches

Road, Tramway Road and Dalethorpe Road. Repairs to isolated areas

of slumped seal will be carried out on Tennyson Street. Digout repairs

will occur on Waimakariri Gorge Road. Maintenance metaling will

occur on Mitchells 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 is continuing at the Masefield Drive/Rolleston Drive

intersection in Rolleston. Removal of existing islands and vegetation

has been done and ducts installed for cables for the new layout.

Footpath reconstructions will be carried out in Prebbleton.

Work has begun by NZTA on SH73 at Cornishmans Rise, between

Arthur’s Pass and Lake Pearson involving installing more gabion

baskets, repairing the shoulder and replacing guardrail. This section

of highway is reasonably narrow, with tight curves, steep grades

and blind rises in some locations. Take care as you approach the

site and stick to the posted speed limit which will be 30km/h.

RATES REMINDER

By now ratepayers should have received their rates invoice for the third quarter of the 2017/18

rating year. This invoice covers the period from 1 January–31 March 2018, and the closing date

for payment is Friday 2 March 2018. After this date a penalty will be applied.

Shopping centre evolves

ADVERTORIAL

into unique destination

Well established as a focal shopping point for people

from across the region, Bush Inn Centre has been

developing extensively over the last few years.

The most recent developments have been the

extensive hospitality offerings, which have proved very

successful, says Development Manager for Ganson

Group Andy Bell.

The centre has evolved significantly and now has a very

different customer profile, he says.

“The centre, by virtue of its stronger, more

contemporary and varied offering, is now attracting a

younger, professional and family demographic and that

has given us the incentive to build on our very unique

offering with further development.”

The new developments will include the arrival of

Briscoes in early 2019.

“We are delighted that one of New Zealand’s top

retailers recognises the changes we have made and

wants to be part of our new, revitalised line-up,” Andy

says.

The other key aspect

of the Bush Inn

Centre’s redevelopment

programme will be

the establishment of

new international

foodmarket, The

Provedore, opening in

early 2019.

“The Provedore

demonstrates the further

evolution of the Bush Inn Centre into a very unique

shopping destination, entirely different from your

standard mall.”

Featuring an open-plan design, The Provedore is a

genuine alternative to supermarkets, Andy says, and

will incorporate a diverse range of providers from New

Zealand, Asia, India the Mediterranean, the Middle

East and Europe including, for example, an Asian

supermarket, European fromagerie and deli, halal,

seafood, fresh produce, organic and natural foods and

even a natural grain store.

“Everything you find in a supermarket and much,

much more.

“Many of the specialty spaces have already been leased

with retailers realising the benefits of our location and

what we are trying to achieve,” Andy says.

“Anyone who would be interested in taking space

should contact me by email on andy@bushinncentre.

co.nz.”

The Bush Inn Centre’s hugely diverse customer base

will find everything they want at The Provedore, Andy

says. He notes that people’s grocery shopping habits

have changed, and where previously people would load

up their trolley on a weekly shop, nowadays they are

much more likely to shop more frequently, sometimes

buying their requirements for dinner that night.

“The Provedore will suit those changing habits

perfectly and we are very excited about this new

offering.”

BUSH INN

PROVEDORE

INTERNATIONAL FOOD MARKET

Opening 2019!

Development at Bush Inn Centre continues!

Briscoes Homewares will open in early 2019.

The Provedore International Food Market will also

open in early 2019.

The Provedore is a genuine alternative to supermarkets - all the

basic supermarket supplies plus much more.

This international food market will have a range of local,

international and specialist providers from New Zealand, South East

Asia, India, The Mediterranean, The Middle East and Europe.

Natural and healthy foods, speciality liquors, farmers market

supplies, organic and gluten free.

Fromagerie, Delicatessen, Bakery, Butchery and Seafood.

JOIN “THE PROVEDORE”

We are leasing now and want Craft Beers, Boutique Wines,

Fruit and Vege, Organic products, Lollies, Pasta, Cheesecakes,

Fish and seafood, Spices, Asian Supplies, Coffee Roasters.

If you have an operation that will fit The Provedore contact us

now. Sites are available from 30sqm- 1000sqm.

Contact Development Manager Andy Bell to discuss this

opportunity. Mobile 021 449 256 or andy@bushinncentre.co.nz

Eastwick made life member

Canty Country

honours

Lincoln stalwart

• By Gordon Findlater

LINCOLN’S GAVIN Eastwick

has been made a life member of

the Canterbury Country Rugby

Sub Union after nearly 40 years

of service.

Mr Eastwick, 69, was made a

life member at last week’s annual

general meeting. Until last year,

he was the sub union’s president

and has held various roles over

the years within Canterbury

Country, the Ellesmere Sub Union

and Lincoln Rugby Football

Club.

“It was a special feeling because

I’ve been pretty committed

to country rugby for a long

number of years now,” said Mr

Eastwick.

He played senior rugby in

Christchurch and for Kirwee

before finishing his playing days

early due to back problems.

His first administration role

was with Kirwee as a committee

member. He then went on

to coach Ellesmere rep teams,

which marked the start of his

involvement with Canterbury

Country.

Mr Eastwick has plenty of

fond memories from his years

of involvement with Canterbury

Country.

One that sticks out for him

was the annual games between

Country and Metro when they

were played at Lancaster Park.

LONG SERVICE: Gavin

Eastwick has been made

Sub Union.

“They were tremendous. We

had under-10 kids playing the

early games right through to the

senior game in the afternoon,”

said Mr Eastwick.

“The friendly nature of everyone

and the commitment that

people have to country rugby is

something that appeals to me

more than anything.”

Until recently, Mr Eastwick

had made a habit of keeping

himself busy, being the president

for both the Ellesmere and

Canterbury Country sub unions,

while also serving on the Canterbury

Rugby Football Union

board.

“There comes a time when you

have to take a break,” said Mr

Eastwick.

However, he says that when

the country rugby season starts

he will still put his supporter’s

hat on every Saturday and head

down to the sideline to cheer on

his home club Lincoln.

“If you’re a country rugby supporter

then usually you’re one

for life.”

11-year-old

Ellesmere

archer to

take on

Australians

• By Andrew King

ELLESMERE Archery Club’s

Ryley Griffiths has been selected

in the Archery New Zealand

transtasman team after only

three years in the sport.

The 11-year-old will shoot

in the cub men’s recurve at the

event ​in Morwell, Victoria, from

April 19-23.

He is the only Ellesmere club

member to make the team after

falling in love with the sport at a

‘have-a-go’ day in Southbridge.

Ryley will also compete in the

Australian youth nationals, also

in Morwell, from April 12-16.

His mother Jane said he is

excited to make the team and

compete overseas.

“Ryley loves the friendships he

has made already from all over

New Zealand and Australia, and

is fortunate to have a great team

of archers around him for support,”

she said.

He is coached by Petra Baker,

who trained under coach Kisik

Lee at the Olympic Training

Center in Chula Vista, united

States, and now teaches junior

archery in North Canterbury.

READY, SET, FLEX

Flex Fitness is set to open in just weeks and

the new gym promises to be an exercise

venue where everyone feels welcome –

whatever your fitness levels.

Whether you are at the start your fitness

journey or you’re a work out guru from way

back, the newest gym in Lincoln will be able

to cater to your every need.

Locals and owners Scott and Mel have set

up this gym, on the corner of Edward St and

Eastfield Drive, with the community in mind.

Both grew up in the area, so are aware of

the needs of local residents.

“What we want to provide is a 24-hour

gym that also offers great support and

encouragement to those who need it.

We want to see our members succeed

in reaching their goals and achieve great

things,” says Mel.

“We know there are lots of reasons for

coming to a gym – whether it is fitness,

strength, weight loss or just general

wellness. We also know that it is easier

for people to succeed when they feel

supported, have the right equipment and

programme, as well as an environment

where they feel welcome and included.”

The new gym promises to be state-of-the

art. Here you will find a range of options to

suit your exercise preferences.

“We’re bringing Life Fitness (cardio) and

hammer strength gear, group fitness classes

and personal trainers. There will be Netflix

to watch while you work out on the cardio

equipment. There will also be a smoothie

and coffee bar.”

There is also a beauty therapist on site who

will be offering half price services for the

first month.

Mel and Scott are also the parents of a

young family, including twin girls, so they

know the demands on time and pressures

family face. “We want to make sure people

are working out smartly so they make best

use of whatever time they have available to

exercise.”

If you sign up before the official open day

Mel and Scott will waive the joining fee

and you’ll also go in the draw to win 1 of 6

helicopter experiences with Independent

Helicopters. Those who become members

prior to opening are also able to join in

outdoor training sessions in Lincoln two

days a week.

Country cricket down to top four

IMPRESSIVE: Chris Warner was a key destroyer for Darfield-

South Malvern with four wickets in their loss to Cheviot.

Darfierld-South

Malvern out

of title race

DARFIELD-South Malvern have

been pipped in their hunt to

qualify for the top four section in

the premier Canterbury country

one-day cricket competition.

Playing at home against

Cheviot in the final round-robin

match, Darfield-South Malvern

dismissed the visitors for just

110. However, a fine bowling

display from Cheviot saw them

bowl Darfield-South Malvern out

for 85 and solidify a spot in the

top four.

It was no surprise bowlers

dominated the match with Darfield-South

Malvern and Cheviot

containing five of the top 10

wicket-takers in the competition.

Chris Warner was the star with

ball in hand for Darfield-South

Malvern. The right-arm medium-fast-bowler

took four wickets

for 16 runs from 6.2 overs. James

Ferris (2/25) was the first to get

among the wickets, dismissing

both Cheviot openers cheaply.

Ben Alexander was also

impressive with the ball, taking

three wickets for 28 runs from

nine overs.

Only three Darfield-South

Malvern players managed

double figures in their failed run

chase. Ferris scored 23 from 18

deliveries at the top of the order.

However, the rest of the top order

failed to fire. Batting at No 8,

Patrick Reardon put on 20 runs

to have his side in with a shot at

76/7 in the 26th over. When he

was dismissed by Canterbury

country representative spinner

Harry Fitzpatrick, the game was

all but over.

Defending champion Sefton

will go into the top four section

MISSED: Toby Kars attempts to take a tough, over-the-shoulder

running catch.

of the competition in top spot

after a comprehensive win over

Weedons. At Sefton, Weedons

were asked to bat and never got

on top of a steady attack, falling

all out for 130 in the 42nd over.

The Sefton Seals lost an early

wicked, but Tim Harrison and

Harley James then combined

in an outstanding partnership

finishing the match in 32 overs,

with nine wickets in hand.

Oxford-Rangiora continued

their solid form with a crucial

win over fellow cellar-dwellers

Lincoln.

After winning the toss,

Oxford-Rangiora were patient

with the bat and made their way

through to 160/7 off their allotted

45 overs.

Oxford started their bowling

effort with a bang, taking the

first three wickets for only four

runs.

Wickets fell continuously in

the early overs and a quick finish

look likely when Lincoln were

reduced to 36/9.

Mark Elliot did his best to

try and steady the ship with 47

not out, but was left stranded as

Lincoln were all out for 86.

Leeston-Southbridge were

forced to forfeit to Southbrook

with a number of players

unavailable due to an ill-timed

wedding and players with representative

duties.

The competition is now split

into a top four (Sefton, Weedons,

Leeston-Southbridge, Cheviot)

and bottom four (Darfield-South

Malvern, Southbrook, Lincoln,

Oxford-Rangiora).

The teams will play one round

of matches against each other

to decide seedings for the semifinals.

Scoreboards:

•Cheviot 110 (J Harris 39;

C Warner 4/16, B Alexander

3/28, J Ferris 2/25) beat

Darfield-South Malvern 85

Diesel expertise

available in Rolleston

All diesel vehicles have a diesel fuel injection unit.

When these need repairing, it is the job for an expert in

the field.

Phil Thompson is a qualified Automotive and Diesel

Fuel Injection Engineer. He is one of a very small

number of experts of diesel fuel injection in Canterbury

and throughout New Zealand.

Phil completed trade qualifications as well as

training courses over a number of years at the Bosch

headquarters in Melbourne, along with more than 30

years in fuel injection work so he really is an expert in

the field.

Recognising the need for specialist work in this area,

Phil and his wife Kylie set up Diesel Fix, relocating the

business to Rolleston’s Jones Road precinct last year.

This move has proved very popular with businesses and

individuals seeking repairs of their diesel fuel injection

systems.

Kylie who looks after the administrative work is

enjoying their new location, which is close to home in

Rolleston where they have lived for the last 10 years.

Moving Diesel Fix to Jones Road has given the business

a higher profile while being handier to many of the

firm’s customers who come from all over the

district as well as Christchurch city.

Phil carries out all aspects of diesel fuel

injection servicing, from pulling the pumps off

to reconditioning the units. This means, Diesel

Fix is the place to go for fuel injection pump

reconditioning, injector reconditioning, common

rail injector servicing, Efi injector servicing,

compression testing and vehicle scanning.

With the latest diagnostic equipment on site,

Diesel Fix can also look after more general

automotive servicing if needed. They also have a

large range of reconditioned injector pumps and

injectors for exchange or supply, along with new

common rail injectors and other diesel parts.

Diesel Fix can help with batteries too.

They carry Koba batteries for motor vehicles,

motorcycles, jetskis and four wheelers, as well as

the deep cycle batteries for larger vehicles such as

campervans and marine batteries.

If needing the services of Diesel Fix you can drop off

or courier any pumps and other diesel fuel injection

parts to 821 Jones Road in Rolleston. They are open

8am-5pm, Mondays to Fridays, and also on Saturdays

from 9am-1pm. Phil is only too happy to advise you.

Just call him on 0274 368 154 or 03 347 7108. It is also

helpful if you book your repair work in.

Phil is a qualified Automotive and

Diesel Fuel Injection Engineer.

Diesel Fix now carry Koba batteries.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

Answer:

It sure is! Just be sure that you

choose the right variety – these will

be quick maturing ones like Jersey

Benne, Rocket and Cliffs Kidney.

They will grow and produce

potatoes in 60-90 days, which

would crop in time before the

frosts start to kick in. Make sure

that the ground is well dug over

with Organic Compost, and add

some super phosphate in there as

well. This helps to encourage root

development.

For more information, check out our website: www.intelligro.co.nz

Disease

Potatoes can get infected with disease, of which blight is one of the majors.

You will notice leaf spots, and then it spreads to the stems and tubers.

This disease is most common in humid weather, especially if we have

warm days that turn into cool nights. Keep an eye on this, and treat as

soon as you notice it. There are great sprays out there that will help protect

your plant, so head to your local garden centre and ask their helpful team.

Late-Summer Veggie Care

With the warm weather no doubt your veggies are in abundance. Make

sure you are harvesting them as soon as they are ready so the birds and

bugs don’t attack them. Also, with most veggies, picking the produce will

encourage new growth – awesome! Cut off lower laterals on tomatoes

and remove older leaves on pumpkins and courgettes to help ripen fruit

and improve ventilation. Placing pumpkins on wood or another material

and keeping them off the ground will prevent soil damage from occurring

on your upcoming harvest.

Looking forward to autumn planting

When planting or sowing any new plants or veges, ensure you

prepare the soil and plant with the necessary nutrients to help the

growing process. Whether you are starting from seed, or planting

out seedlings, our Seed Raising Mix, Veggie Garden Mix, and Patio

Plus are specially formulated for this job. For existing garden beds

that need a freshen up, add in Organic Compost and dig it through.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Milk company renews supply

agreement with Chinese customer

Synlait and Bright Dairy are pleased to

announce a new five-year supply agreement

for packaged infant formula.

The agreement provides certainty around

production volumes for both parties, and

builds on previous supply arrangements

put in place since the relationship began in

2011.

“This new agreement is a positive step in

our long-standing partnership and we’re

looking forward to playing a key role in

the future success of Bright Dairy’s infant

formula business,” Synlait’s CEO John

Penno says.

The agreement includes a commitment

from both parties to prescribed production

volumes each year for Bright Dairy’s Pure

Canterbury infant formula brand.

Launched in 2011, the Pure Canterbury

range of infant formula is Bright Dairy’s

flagship infant nutrition brand. It is sold

throughout China in both online and

traditional channels.

This agreement will underpin Synlait’s

application to register Pure Canterbury with

the China Food and Drug Administration

(CFDA).

Overall, the agreement targets a fourfold

increase from current volumes over the

five-year term.

As well as being an infant formula

customer, Bright Dairy is also Synlait’s

largest shareholder by volume with a 39.4

per cent stake.

“We are fortunate to have one of

our largest and earliest infant formula

customers as a major shareholder,” Mr

Penno says.

“This shareholder dynamic is something

we share with a number of our customers

and it fosters a close relationship that

focuses on the medium to long-term

success for everyone involved.”

Other infant nutrition customers

with a strategic shareholding in Synlait

Milk include the a2 Milk Company and

Munchkin Inc.

“Synlait is a growth company and all of

our shareholders, including customers,

support our policy to reinvest our success

into the organisation here in New Zealand,”

Mr Penno says.

Unique home furnishing opportunity

Many people from Rolleston and others

visiting the area have discovered the unique

selection of quality, one-off home décor

items and furniture pieces on show at

Nevara Fine Interiors.

Sadly, due to medical reasons the store’s

owner Barbara Pritchard has made the

difficult decision to close Nevara and

is selling everything in-store at heavily

discounted prices.

Items on sale range from classical Chinese

antiques through to modern day furniture,

chairs, console tables and pots in a variety

of sizes for indoor or outdoor use. All are

offered at landed cost price providing

customers with a great chance to add that

special piece to their home.

There is a superb range of items on sale

in store. These include table lamps, accent

pieces like altar tables, coffee and end

tables, cushions, art, handmade jewellery, a

grand day bed, bronze frog drums, antique

pieces like jade, horses, fish and elephants,

as well as a 125 year old Chinese ginger jar

and Barbara’s handmade jewellery that will

dress up any outfit.

Barbara began Nevara Fine Interiors after

she returned from living abroad where she

trained under a world leading designer,

becoming an internationally recognised

interior designer in her own right with over

40 years’ experience. In opening the store,

she wanted to offer home furnishing items

not easy to find elsewhere and ones which

would set a home off by adding a character

piece expressing the personality of those

who lived there.

The sale of the shop’s items will run until

Wednesday, 28th February when the doors

will be closed unless an interested party

comes forward in the meantime.

Barbara will still be available to provide

interior design advice or oversee a partial

or complete refurbishment of your home or

business; a service she provided in Hawaii

for clients, many of whom had very large

homes.

You can contact Barbara on 022 358

1690 to learn more about Nevara.

Nevara Fine Interiors is located at South

Point shopping centre, 3/51 Faringdon

Boulevard in Faringdon (in the southeast

of Rolleston). You will see the red and

gold sail with the Naga mythical dragon

logo outside the store. Nevara is open

10am-5pm weekdays and 10am-3pm

Saturdays.

telling them they love the new ‘Juice’ feel.

with their new name reflecting the energy

they put into every job.

Fireproofing

your outdoors

Hot summers and windy conditions help

fires take hold with the potential for them

to threaten our homes, whether controlled

burn-offs or due to inadvertent actions.

Potential risks to your home

Fires threaten homes in three ways:

• burning embers landing around a home

• a ground spreading fire, or

• through radiant heat.

Embers are a leading cause of house fires

as the wind can carry them for kilometres,

igniting when they land on flammable

materials such as tall dry grass, leaves,

debris in roof gutters, hessian door mats,

outdoor furniture coverings, and rubbish or

materials stored near or under a building.

Embers may also make their way into a

home through open windows and doors or

vents.

The effect of blown embers from a scrub

fire was witnessed in West Melton recently

when they ignited pea straw and bark

garden mulch, threatening homes and

frightening homeowners.

Low vegetation can help spread ground

fires. These travel faster downwind and

up slopes, burning anything in their path

including fences, garden edging, trellises,

sheds and homes.

Fires caused by radiant heat, preheat

igniting flammable materials in and around

a home.

Protecting your home

Unlike other natural disasters like

floods, wind events and earthquakes,

homeowners can be proactive in protecting

their properties from fire. What is within

60 metres of your home will influence the

potential for it to catch fire.

Following some simple steps can increase

your home’s chance of surviving a fire:

• Keep vehicles and wood away from the

home.

• Clean debris out of roof gutters

(especially over summer).

• Stack and store outdoor furniture when

not in use.

• Use non-flammable door mats.

• Keep decks free from vegetation and

debris.

• Fix fine mesh over vents, outdoor pizza

ovens and fireplaces.

• Keep vegetation back from the home or

grow less flammable species like magnolias,

citrus, feijoa, prunus, mulberry, photinia,

deciduous oaks, and succulents for

groundcovers.

• Prune tree branches at least two metres

above the ground, keeping large trees back

from the home and spacing plantings so

they are less likely to spread fire.

• Create a ‘clear zone’ between vegetation

and your house with a lawn or hard tiled,

concrete or stone surface.

• Keep grass cut and irrigate lawns so

they stay green over summer.

• Keep trees, shrubs, logs, twigs, pine

needles and other fuel 10 metres away from

your house.

• Ensure your driveway is at least 4x4

metres wide for emergency vehicles access.

• Choose fire retardant, non-flammable

materials when building or renovating and

metal or roofing iron for fences.

• Work with your neighbour to keep your

home safe.

• Clearly exhibit your street number so

emergency services can see it.

• Thoroughly wet down fire ash.

• Use your barbecue in a sheltered

spot, away from wind, shrubs, trees and

flammable materials.

• Never leave candles burning opting

instead for battery lanterns and electrical

lighting.

• When letting off fireworks, have a hose

close by and bucket to drop spent fireworks

into, lighting them in a barren area.

Summer iS here...

So its a great time to start

thinking about your new lawn.

and give you a free quotation!

Transform your garden

There is often another burst of growth

during February and March then as

autumn sets in plants start to go into winter

hibernation.

It is now time to give the garden a good

clean up, pruning back plants that have just

finished flowering and filling any gaps with

new shrubs or trees. If you are not sure

Sharon CroftS

LandSCape d e S ign

• Consultations • Design Concepts • Planting Plans

about what to prune and when, types of

plants that are best for a particular position,

or if wanting to carry out more extensive

garden renovations then it is worth seeking

advice from a professional.

A landscape designer can add a new

perspective to your garden project

providing additional ideas, and knowledge

of plants and where best to plant them with

autumn ideal for taking a re-look at the

garden and making changes, or revamping

it.

“This summer’s hot conditions have taxed

some plants and this may mean there are

some gaps in the garden that need filling

in or you might want a fresh look,” says

landscape designer Sharon who owns and

operates Sharon Crofts Landscape Designs.

Sharon can advise on what will work best

for a particular position in your garden and

how you can create the outdoor look you

are seeking.

“With the hottest months over, planting

in February and March gives plants a better

rate of survival making this an ideal time

to create a new garden layout,” explains

Sharon.

“As the weather cools you can start

wrenching any plants you want to shift and

looking for suitable species to fill the gaps.”

Sharon reminds that autumn is ideal for

seeding a lawn, advising not to leave it too

late to sow as early frosts can knock grass

and plant growth back.

Fruit trees can also be planted and over

winter, it may be possible to purchase these

as well as roses and other deciduous trees,

bare rooted which can be a little more

affordable.

Sharon has studied and worked in

horticulture and landscape technology

for a number of years. Sharon Crofts

Landscape Design offers landscape design

services covering: landscape plans for

new and existing houses; planting plans,

proposals and pictorials; sub-division

developer landscape concepts or full

plans; elevations; construction details; and

plant sourcing. Sharon can also organise

landscape contractors and manage a full

landscape project.

Sharon will work with you, meeting

and advising you on-site, gathering ideas

then drawing up landscape designs so a

functional garden setting, ideal for you and

your family and in line with your interests,

personality and budget is created.

SELWYN TIMES

ADVERTORIAL

Meeting the needs of a growing community

Located in the heart of Faringdon, the attractive South

Point retail complex was designed to meet the diverse

needs of the lively and growing Rolleston community.

It comprises a range of businesses, including The Pedal

Pusher Restaurant Bar, Hooked Fish and Chips, a

clothing store, an Indian restaurant, a men’s hairdresser,

a convenience store and a dance school.

Hooked Fish and Chips is a local, family-owned

business focusing on high-quality, real fish and chips,

owner Rick Irvine says.

As he explains, there are no processed food items. The

burgers and meat patties are made on site using 100 per

cent steak mince, and the chicken for the burgers is pure

chicken breast with some special seasonings. Buns are

baked daily, all fish is battered to order as you wait and

nothing is pre-battered.

“We are trying to offer high-quality food at prices that

are as affordable as possible. All fish is at least 150g per

portion,” Rick says. “We offer at least three choices of

fish and two choices of chips, crunchy twice cooked, and

freshly cut chips cooked from raw for a more traditional

home-cooked option.

“We like to source as much product locally as possible

and support as many small businesses as we can. We

hope to play our part in the community and provide

support to various teams, clubs and community groups

as we have always done in the past.”

Paying tribute to the strong bicycling history of

Christchurch, The Pedal Pusher Restaurant Bar features

a unique and quirky bicycle-themed décor. Bicycles and

bicycle parts festoon the ceiling, creating a jaw-dropping

effect, while the warmth and friendliness of the staff add

to the positive vibe.

Customers can enjoy a delicious and varied range of

dishes, from brunch and lunch through to platters for

sharing and classy dinners. Daily specials range from

tasty bar snacks to pizzas on Friday.

All produce and ingredients are locally sourced,

ensuring freshness and flavour.

The food is complemented by an extensive beverage

selection, including quality New Zealand wines, Italian

sparking wines, champagne, as well as premium

mainstream New Zealand beers and a wide range of

New Zealand craft beers. Cocktails for every season

complete the selection.

There is also freshly brewed espresso coffee and fresh

baking every day.

A kids’ area with TV and toys keeps the youngsters

happy, plus there are two relaxing outside areas. Sunday

afternoons feature a barbeque and live music, while

regular events include a quiz night every Monday with

free entry.

Show homes

the ultimate way to shop around

Across the selwyn district, we are blessed with an

extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle, featuring all the

latest in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you ;will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get

a good idea of pricing, discover good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long-term returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check

out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Building trends moving

into 2018

Where once a 200 plus square metre four

bedroom home was the norm, the district

is coming of age with the breadth and

size of new home builds including many

smaller footprints.

Developments such as Generation

Homes’ Devon Green and Branthwaite

in Rolleston cater expressly for buyers

capitalising on the Home Start grant

and the opportunity to draw down their

KiwiSaver funds to allow them to get

into the market. Other first home buyers

and those downsizing are also looking at

homes around the 125-150 square metre

mark.

Three bedroom homes ranging upwards

of 165 to 190sqm and three car garages are

also now popular options.

Market changes are also reflected in

the diversity of style and size in the show

homes now available for viewing.

It is not just the young who are being

catered for with three over 55 and

retirement complexes currently under

construction in Rolleston. These include

the Mary Brittan Lifestyle Village,

Woodcroft Estate and The Boulevard

with villas, duplex units and apartments

planned while the latter will ultimately

be Rolleston’s first village to offer the full

continuum of care with care suites and

hospital rest home and dementia beds.

External claddings on residential

buildings continue to include the more

traditional brick and plaster with more

frequency in the use of linear along with

cedar, schist and metal as cladding options

or added for effect. Roof lines vary from

hip and gable to skillion.

Homes with interesting floor layouts are

desirable while interior trends for 2018

are away from white or stainless steel

kitchen sinks to black or dark colours,

accented with quirky or concrete benches,

floors and even walls. The rustic effect is

augmented with tiled splash backs that

give the look of wallpaper, vintage lighting,

open shelving, and matte metal or brass

hardware.

As kitchens have become the hub of

the home the bathroom is a place of

luxuriance. Generous walk-in showers,

double shower heads (especially in

ensuites), freestanding baths and tiling not

just on the floors but running up the walls

are common themes. Trough and bucket

sinks are also in as is the rustic look,

complemented by splashes of colour with

aquas and greens in vogue.

Statement or white floors are mooted

overseas supplemented with earthy tones

and light wood cabinetry while the natural

wood look and warm neutral colours

are still fashionable augmented with rich

vibrant colours.

Access and doorways are becoming

wider.

In the bedroom, casual and calm

yet modern is the feel while textured

patterned wallpapers especially as feature

walls may be present throughout the

house, or black walls along with large

furniture pieces.

Energy saving features to incorporate

into the new home include: low-emissivity

(low-e) double glazing, solar water heating

or power and remote controlled systems

that allow lights and heating to be turned

on from a cell phone.

Designer living spaces outdoors are also

in vogue with porticos, pizza ovens, gas

fires and lap pools often incorporated.

Help at hand for overwhelmed

home buyers and sellers

If you believe everything you see in

advertisements, buying a house is a

blissfully easy process done by attractive

couples who are moving into pictureperfect

properties. There will be moments

of joy and laughter, and the only thing

missing will be a unicorn grazing in the

neatly manicured garden.

In real life, buying or selling a house can

be a time for great rejoicing, but it can also

be extremely stressful. Owning a home is

still embedded in the Kiwi DNA, despite

rising prices making it less attainable.

Buying a property is the biggest financial

transaction most people will ever make in

their lifetime and if it doesn’t go well the

results can be devastating.

As the regulator for New Zealand’s real

estate industry, the Real Estate Authority

(REA) works to increase professionalism

and public confidence in the sector as

well as to protect, educate and inform

home buyers and sellers. In the last year

we’ve done a lot of research into Kiwis’

experience of property transactions and

the results have been sobering.

Our research has found that more than

50 per cent of New Zealanders say they

lack the knowledge and information they

need when trying to buy and sell property.

Many feel confused and find it difficult

to find reliable information. The majority

(55 per cent) said they lacked knowledge

about the end-to-end process.

Unfortunately, this lack of knowledge

means that many buyers fail to do the

appropriate due diligence and expose

themselves to significant potential risks. We

all know someone who didn’t realise they’d

have to pay for a shared driveway, or who

bought a house without getting a building

inspection that would have showed it was

full of borer. Our survey found that while

83 per cent of buyers got at least one report

on a property, less than half (44 per cent)

got one from a certified building inspector.

These kinds of situations cost money and

time, which are never in great enough

supply for most people.

A lack of clear guidance could be partially

responsible for the results of a second

survey, which showed that 53 per cent

of potential buyers had problems when

making an offer on a property. Thirtyfive

per cent of sellers found marketing

the property and having open homes the

toughest part of the process. Half of those

who experienced trouble said it had a

significant impact, causing them personal

stress or financial woes. New migrants and

first-time home buyers and sellers were the

most likely to have problems, such as with

understanding the value and the condition

of a property.

While it may seem that there’s a lot of

information on buying or selling out there,

it’s often scattered and hard to understand.

Crucially, it often comes from sources with

a vested interest in the outcome and people

are understandably wary about whether

they can rely on it.

This is where we come in. This week we

launched a new website to help fill the gap.

Buying a house is a complex legal process

and things can be even more difficult if

you’re not sure about how it works because

you’ve never done it before or you haven’t

done it for a long time. We hope that the

impartial and interactive information and

guidance on settled.govt.nz will help people

make better decisions. We want to make it

easy for people to do their homework so

they feel confident and in control before

buying or selling property. When you’ve

got the right information at hand your

experience is much more likely to resemble

the dream sold in advertisements.

Kevin Lampen-Smith is the chief executive

of the Real Estate Authority (REA).
