event

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

IT IS FOUR days out from Selwyn’s

largest music festival – and tickets

are likely to sell out.

A capacity 10,000 crowd is expected

for Selwyn Sounds at Lincoln

Domain on Saturday.

Australian rock icon Jimmy

Barnes will headline the show. The

Feelers, Mental as Anything, Stellar,

The Mockers, The Narcs, The Lady

Killers and The Warratahs will also

play.

Promotor David Parlane said if

people think they can walk up on

the day to buy a ticket they may be

unlucky.

The day-long festival will include

more than 30 international food

stalls.

Mr Parlane said while last year

ran virtually seamless, some changes

have been made – including

doubling the amount of Portaloos to

decrease waiting lines.

Artists will begin arriving in from

Thursday.

Barnes will fly in on Saturday

morning after playing a gig in

Adelaide the night before.

SELWYN SOUNDS is now locked in as an

iconic event in the district.

It’s on again at Lincoln on Saturday and

congratulations must go to promoter David

Parlane and his team for building on the

success of last year’s festival.

The day benefits the district in terms of profile and spending.

There’s plenty of bars and cafes in the area to head to after – or

before – the gig.

But there’s another big event on Saturday, well for me anyway

– the 23rd Deserthead Classic (golf) at Ellesmere.

It’s so named because a number of the original players were

follicly challenged, me excepted!

Needless to say, I’ve been tearing my hair out over where to be

– golf or Selwyn Sounds?

Home sweet home

for Maddie after transplant

Bridge takes shape

A new bridge over Liffey Stream in Lincoln is expected to

be competed at the end of next month. The three-year

staged project began last year with the construction of the

pedestrian link adjacent to the former country club – which

is now 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 built the bridge off-site. The

32m structure was placed by a crane in three sections, onto

four central piles. The district council’s land development

project manager Phil Millar said the Lincoln Community

Committee has 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 district

council to work closely with the community committee on

this project,” he said.

Big plans for Springfield station

NEW START: The Springfield Railway Station Cafe re-opened

last month and is run by Gayl and Barry Lindon. ​

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A NEW community group has

formed to give Springfield’s

historic railway station a makeover.

The Friends of Springfield Station

plans to beautify its station

– in a bid to transform it into a

community hub.

The group is planning to work

with KiwiRail and Rail Heritage

Trust of New Zealand to

paint the station and tidy up its

gardens.

Restoration work will include

painting the building’s

woodwork, veranda, doors and

window sills.

Founder Simon Williams said

the aim is to turn it into a community

area for people to come

and “hang out.”

“I think it is worth doing because

it is part of the historical

fabric of Springfield, which was

really put there for the railway,”

he said.

The group was formed after

Christmas and is made up of

about 20 members.

The station is already

beginning to grow with The

Springfield Railway Station Cafe

re-opening last month in the

station’s old refreshment rooms.

The cafe’s leasee Heather Valphy

makes up cheeseboards for

the TranzAlpine at the station

each day.

The station already has a collectables

shop, personal trainer

and plant seller.

A monthly farmer’s market

is also planned to run in the

future.

The station has operated in the

township since the 1880s.

It was originally located in the

centre of Springfield – which

is now known as Tramway

Reserve.

In 1923, the railway station

was moved to its current

location off King St so a larger

marshalling yard could be built

following the opening of the

Otira Tunnel.

“Springfield used to be a really

big railway centre . . . they used

to have a particular type of locomotive

stationed at Springfield.

I think there was something

like 70 people who serviced the

system,” Mr Williams said.

He said 12 white railway

houses known as the “white

city” used to be located along

the line.

The railway station was rebuilt

using pink summerhill stone in

1966 after the old station burnt

down.

Mr Williams said while pink

summerhill stone is not “everybody’s

favourite building material

in 2018”, the Rail Heritage

Trust felt it was a voyage too far

to repaint the building material.

He said he thinks when the

steam locomotives disappeared

at the end of the 1960s people

thought the railway age was

over.

But Mr Williams said there

are still a lot of railway men in

the town and its heritage is not

being celebrated enough.

The group will lodge a proposal

with KiwiRail in the hopes

of securing funding for the

project.

As part of his proposal, Mr

Williams would like to get

KiwiRail to agree to stopping

the TranzAlpine in Springfield

for an extended break.

Currently, it only stops to

allow passengers to board or

disembark the train and to pick

up the cheeseboards.

Adams tackled over impact

of motorway comments

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

SELWYN MP Amy Adams

has been told she is wrong

to claim the New Zealand

Transport Agency is not

monitoring traffic volume

on West Melton roads.

Ms Adams recently

released a statement saying

she is concerned about the

impact the Christchurch

Southern Motorway Stage

2 will have on West Melton

roads.

She said she is disappointed

NZTA has not

carried out transport

modelling on roads which

will be affected by the new

motorway.

It follows a recent meeting

she had with NZTA

regarding her concerns.

However, NZTA’s

regional relationships

director Jim Harland said

it is not correct to say traffic

volumes have not been

monitored.

“Our traffic count

database, which covers all

highways, is monitored

regularly by transport

planning staff to identify

when issues may arise on

the network,” he said.

Amy Adams

Ms Adams said while

she is a supporter of

CSM2, she is worried

about Weedons Ross Rd

and the intersection of

the same road with State

Highway 73.

“I would have assumed

that NZTA would have

done modelling on the

impact of CSM2 on surrounding

roads using current

data but this appears

to not have been the case.’’

Mr Harland said the

West Melton intersection

has been identified and as

a result NZTA is planning

an intersection upgrade in

the next three year transport

programme.

This is to improve safety

and access as a response

to residential development

and traffic growth at the

intersection.

Mr Harland said transport

modelling of the

intersection will occur

when the project is being

designed and planned.

But Ms Adams said

NZTA has not updated its

traffic volume data since

2000 – in spite of Selwyn

experiencing some of

the fastest growth in the

country.

“This leaves West Melton

residents and drivers who

commute via this intersection

daily without any

assurance that there is an

adequate plan in place to

manage the growing traffic

volumes at this location

and mitigate health and

safety risks for drivers and

pedestrians.

Weedons Residents

Association secretary

Gary Doyle responds to

Selwyn Times’ article

on Wigram MP Megan

Woods and Minister for

Conservation Eugenie

Sage meeting with

residents over quarrying

issues in Templeton

The inference is that Megan

Woods and Eugene Sage met

with Weedons residents. I can

assure that neither person

has had any contact with the

Weedons Resident’s Association.

They may have been in touch

with the Templeton residents

but not with us, and as the

proposed quarry is in the

Selwyn District and not the

Christchurch city then surely

the local residents association

should be involved with any

such discussions.

For these two people to say

that they have listened firsthand

to local residents concerns

is not correct, and gives

the Weedons people a false

impression as to how things

are progressing.

Both Weedons and Templeton

have had a joint meeting

with Fulton Hogan and a

channel for dialogue has been

opened, however, as the firm

has not finalised its plans yet it

is to early to make an assumptions

as to how things will

progress.

It is obvious that

John Morten has strong

feelings that council

should not be inundated

with appeals from people

with strong feelings about

issues. I agree with him that

the best form of protection for

council is to act decisively in

the Abbeyfield situation, and

establish a firm precedent that

this is the way council will

operate.

Bev Elder

Making sure no one feels

In her roles with the

Two Rivers Community

Trust and Selwyn Civil

Defence, Darfield’s

Bev Elder has been

supporting people

in need since the

earthquakes. She

spoke to Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

about what drives her

to help families in the

community

Why did you decide to

get involved in Two Rivers

Community Trust?

It was more the other way

round. After the earthquakes,

the community here established

the Malvern Community Hub

and for about five months we

channelled everything you

could think of into the city in

convoys. It was everything out

of our garden’s pantries and

goodness knows what. We did

that for about five months and

then when things began to settle

down a bit more, we realised

people wanted to continue

helping people and so it evolved

into the Malvern Community

Hub. From there, the Darfield

Baptist Church picked up the

need to have the Two Rivers

Community Trust so there was

a legal entity and other things

could grow and happen out of

that.

Are the Malvern Community

Hub and Two Rivers Trust two

separate organisations?

Two Rivers has got four main

streams to it and community

support is the stream we are

under. I manage that stream for

Two Rivers. The hub falls under

that along with other things.

Tell me about some of the key

projects you have been working

on lately?

Regular programmes we

support are the Craft and

Cuppa. That is specifically for

people who are lonely and need

to come out and talk to other

people. They can do crafts if

they want to, but they don’t

have to. It is a chance for lonely

people to integrate into a bigger

community. The folk from

Westmar Senior Care Centre,

some of them come along to it.

It is just nice to be out and about

in the community and meeting

other people. Language and

Laughter is another one. It came

out of our knowledge there were

many migrant women kind of

trapped on farms and some of

them desperate to have their

children get into some kind of

pre-school programme so they

start learning English. We have

had people from South America,

Egypt and India. They gather

together to do conversational

English and help with whatever

project they are on about.

The Malvern area gets a lot of

people coming from overseas?

Absolutely. For the women

in particular, they can be very

isolated on their farms. The

husbands can be off to work and

he is integrating with others and

learning English, but she is at

home maybe with a child or two.

We have a particular compassion

for those women.

In your role, what are some

interesting things you have

learnt that you think others

would be surprised to hear?

It is certainly around the

perception of poverty. Because

we think, ‘oh, this is where

retired farmers come,’ and

retired farmers clearly have

a lot of money. There is a

misconception about the level

of poverty. That is quite an

interesting one to tackle. We

offer budgeted advice and run

the foodbank so we are seeing

those people who have hit a

speed bump on their road and

they are really struggling. But

it is interesting to convince

other people there is that level

of poverty. The other critical

element is about housing and

the need for social housing. The

market sourced system simply

doesn’t work. The two are kind

of linked.

alone in the countryside

You don’t always hear a lot

about Selwyn’s social situation?

One of the difficulties is that

the people who have some

control are the people who

decide what is the poverty level

or what is the need for social

housing or emergency housing.

All of the agencies who support

them are distant. They are in

the city or they are hidden in

bureaucratic places. So out here,

we are left to do what can we do.

What do you feel needs

to be done to improve these

situations?

There needs to be a clear

commitment from the agencies

that they will sit around a table

and talk to the people who really

know what is going on. And

explore and discuss until we find

the solutions that are available

to us.

It is really quite simple if

you talk to people in their own

communities, you find what they

need is a change in regulation so

you can put a granny flat on the

back of your property that is not

for a family member but is for

somebody else.

In Darfield of course, we

have a significant proportion of

the population that live alone.

Sometimes they are living like

me in a three-bedroom house on

a quarter acre section which is

far more than I actually need.

But I don’t have any other

alternatives. Where can I find

small suitable accommodation

that doesn’t take it right through

the roof? If we had a forum that

said how could we deal with

this and what is in our power

to do that, we could make a big

difference I believe.

Are there other agencies you

would like to talk to?

Absolutely. Some of the private

organisations that do social

housing. I know the Salvation

Army is struggling with the

definition of ‘need’ and the

limitations on that but they are

another voice.

The agency that controls

income subsidies; they need to

be sitting around the table as

well. WINZ and places like that,

and representatives of the health

system because everybody knows

the healthiest place for a person

is in their own home. How do

we keep them there? How do

we sustain people in their own

homes or make it possible to do

that? It would have to be a forum

that looks at all the aspects.

What is the most difficult

part of your job?

It is a silly thing but really the

most difficult part of my job is

encouraging people to believe

they are not a failure if they have

a speed bump in their life and if

they need a bit of help they can

get it. When they have got over

that, they can contribute back. It

is just the way a neighbour works

with another neighbour.

You must feel like you know

everyone in the community

after working with them so

much?

Just about, and we work hard

to make sure people know we

will stop and listen. We will take

them seriously. We will find

some way – some neighbourly

way – of dealing with what the

situation is. We recommend to

other people, we advocate to

other people, we walk alongside

people on the journey.

Is this your full-time role?

I am full-time bossy my family

tells me. I have had a long career

in teaching and I use aspects of it

in what I do now. But, yes, I am

retired and busy.

How did you come to arrive

in Darfield?

I am really a North Islander

who came down here to

Darfield. I think it was about

2003-2004. When I finished my

teaching career I wanted to be

a bit closer to my children and

grandchildren – not too close but

close enough that I can join in

their lives. Then I thought ‘here I

am, what am I going to do?’ And

it went from there.

And you have been involved

in helping the Darfield

community ever since?

I have a passion for Malvern

because it is the biggest but least

inhabited and therefore the least

serviced part of Selwyn. When

people think of Selwyn, they

tend to think of the big-bodied

population that is Rolleston and

the services there.

We have got so many villages.

They have just as much need and

it is just helping them to find a

voice or find some strategies

that are in their control. If we

can do this together we can

mange it.

You must like being out in the

country?

Yes, and the other element

is because it is rural there is a

spirit of generosity – it is just

wonderful. We never lack for

volunteers; we never lack for

contributions to the foodbank

or people to help out. People

want to be engaged; to be

neighbourly; to express that

neighbourliness.

Has Darfield changed a lot?

The demographics are

changing; it is growing. There is

Elder (right) with

no doubt about that in different

kinds of ways. There is a

significant rise in renters rather

than home owners. A lot of it

does depend on what Fonterra is

doing and whether they are in an

expansion phase or not. I think

the township is poised for more

growth.

It has certainly got enough

capacity to grow. It is hard to

know with the forces holding

it back from becoming what it

could be. I guess the focus is

on Rolleston and also probably

it has to do with the fact they

haven’t resolved the whole

issue with the water reticulated

system. We feel out here that is

being used as a reason to not go

ahead with things.

What do you like to do in

your spare time?

I have a very active little dog

so walking is one of them. I

love working in the Darfield

Community Garden that has

been established out there. I

read heaps and I try to learn

something new every year.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Teacher says farewell to a life of ballet

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

“THE MORE you put into

dance, the more that comes back

to you.”

Those are the words of highlyrespected

ballet teacher Ann

Judson, of Lincoln, who has

dedicated 44 years to helping

place dancers in professional

schools and ballet companies

around the world.

She taught at ballet schools

across the country and most recently

at Aspire Dance Academy

where she took classes at the

Springston Community Hall.

But after a difficult past 18

months, Ms Judson has farewelled

a life of ballet.

In November, she fell off

her bike and broke two parts

of her upper arm and

dislocated her shoulder. She also

broke her shoulder socket in two

places.

She spent seven weeks sitting

upright in her bed every night to

sleep.

“I was very fortunate because

the hospital hoped the dislocation

would go back into place so

I could avoid surgery. That actually

happened,” she said.

But she said she has got another

five months of physio and

the last 18 months have been a

lot to cope with.

In 2016, she lost her husband

Paul in an accident at Queen’s

Birthday weekend and dealt

with unexpected throat surgery

shortly afterwards.

“Often he would walk through

the door with the most beautiful

bouquet of roses with no other

reason than to say: ‘I love you’,”

she said.

Ms Judson said she was fortunate

because her husband was a

superb cook and she would come

home to a cooked meal when she

was tired at the end of the day.

When she was recognised with

a New Zealand Order Of Merit

(MNZM) for services to ballet in

2015, she said Paul had earned

that award as well.

Ms Judson said the parents

of her pupils supported her “in

every possible way” both before

and after her husband’s death.

“The parental support I have

had has been absolutely superb,”

she said.

A Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

celebration was held at St Mary’s

Anglican Church, Halswell,

recently to recognise her retirement.

Ms Judson trained at the New

Zealand School of Dance and

danced with the Royal New

Zealand Ballet.

She set up the National Ballet

School full-time tertiary course

in Christchurch in 1993 and was

awarded a fellowship with the

British Ballet Organisation.

She is also the South Island

representative for the British Ballet

Organisation Australasia.

But Ms Judson said the greatest

part of her teaching career

has been “to see a child’s belief

in him or herself come into fruition.”

One of her most successful

pupils was Marc Cassidy who

travelled from Clyde to Christch-

LOOKING BACK: Ann Judson

with a international Japanese

student training at the National

Ballet School in the early

1990s.

urch for weeks at a time to train

with her.

Cassidy was accepted into the

Australian Ballet School before

winning The Genée International

Ballet Competition in

London in 1993.

Cassidy described Ms

Judson as “one in a million,”

generous, honest and “genuinely

in love” with the art form of

ballet.

Following the February 22,

2011, earthquake, Ms Judson

managed to get her classes up

and running two weeks later at

the Tai Tapu Hall.

She would tell parents not to

worry about fees and use what

money they had on petrol to get

their children to her classes.

“There were many grateful

parents because the children

were wetting their beds and

they were terrified. It was just

awful.

“With the little ones coming

through the door I said: ‘Let’s

stomp on the monster’s head,’

which was very helpful when

there were aftershocks and they

were really frightened,” Ms

Judson said.

She said there were many

hardships – with many of her

school’s families having no

homes or jobs.

“We even got into a system

where one parent who had a big

vegetable garden would bring

in tomatoes and lettuces to help

other families. There was a real

comradeship,” she said.

Later when she heard the Tai

Tapu Hall was going to be pulled

down she moved her classes to

Springston.

Ms Judson would also buy costumes

and shoes for her pupils

facing hardships.

Her school would run fundraisers

and she contributed

what money she could to get her

pupils into courses both in New

SELWYN TIMES

West Melton kea

crossing is all go!

The kea crossing installation has been completed for West Melton Primary School on Weedons

Ross Road.

Senior students from the school trained as Road Patrollers with School Community Officer

Constable Rick Groen on Monday morning. The patrollers learnt how to safely operate the newly

installed and much awaited kea crossing to ensure their fellow students and caregivers get across

the busy road safely.

Kea crossings are operated by the trained patrollers along with an adult supervisor. The patrollers

are taught how to find a safe gap in the traffic flow to swing the stop arms out into, to hold the

pedestrians until traffic has stopped and to release pedestrians to cross once the path is clear.

Sue Jackson, Principal of West Melton Primary School says the kea crossing is an opportunity for

students to be involved in the community with leadership responsibilities.

“We are delighted to endorse our Safe School Travel Plan by supporting our students in their

leadership roles as road patrol monitors, ensuring the safety of the school community as they

cross the now busy Weedons Ross Road.”

The kea crossing and footpath extension north on Weedons Ross Road complete the recent

shopping centre landscaping and school frontage development. Road Safety Coordinator

Stephanie Hautler urges parents to use the kea crossing and try active transport.

“We want our young people to be getting to school actively where they can and the kea crossing

and footpath is another tool to open up routes to the community across a busy road. Caregivers

need to be mindful that they are role models for all kids, not just their own and use the kea

crossing to and from school when the flags are up.’’

Drivers are asked to keep an eye on their speed around pedestrians, when entering and exiting

the shopping centre and near the school.

“This is your village and for your children to be safe getting to school you must slow down,” Mrs

Hautler says.

When the kea crossing is not under the control of the road patrol team the cross point operates

like any other piece of road where pedestrians have to wait until the road is clear before crossing

and to wave drivers through who stop to let them cross.

Have your say on Water Bylaws

The Council is inviting submissions to three bylaws covering key water services across the district.

The current Water Supply Bylaw 2008 and the Water Race Bylaw 2008 have both been reviewed

reviewed, while a new Stormwater and Drainage Bylaw 2018 has been drafted for consultation.

The Water Supply Bylaw relates to water supplies under Council control and management across the

district. It has worked well over the past 10 years but now needs to be updated to reflect changes

in operations and in the district’s water needs. The updated bylaw will clarify the obligations of the

Council and customers, provide flexibility in approving connections and generally make the bylaw

easier to understand.

The Water Race Bylaw, which relates to the Council’s water race network, has also been in place since

2008, and the amended version is not significantly different. The changes mainly relate to technical

aspects such as terminology and definitions, and ensuring it meets current statutory requirements.

The new Stormwater and Drainage Bylaw 2018 provides a framework for managing the stormwater

and drainage network across Selwyn. It covers development and maintenance of the network, and

measures to minimize risks to the network from damage, interference or contamination.

The three bylaws are open for public consultation until Wednesday 21 March. Information on the

proposals, including a copy of the draft bylaw and details on making a submission, are available at

www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay

Open Fire Season

Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) has advised the Selwyn

district is now in an Open Fire Season.

No fire permit is needed to light a fire in open air in an Open Fire

Season. However, you are still responsible for the fire and must

ensure that the fire does not get out of control and spread to

vegetation or property.

Fires in the open air in urban areas must

comply with the Environment Canterbury

Air Regional outdoor burning measures. To

learn more about Fire Seasons visit the FENZ

website www.checkitsalright.nz.

Ex-cyclone Gita skims past

Selwyn district

Selwyn was fortunate to be spared the worst effects of ex-tropical

cyclone Gita last week.

On Tuesday (February 21) evening the Council declared a Civil

Defence State of Emergency in response to predicted extremely

heavy rainfall and high winds. While the district received sustained

rainfall which caused river levels to rise and some surface flooding,

the forecast weather didn’t eventuate. By Wednesday (February 22)

afternoon the declaration was lifted.

Selwyn Civil Defence local controller Helene Faass says the

decision to declare on Tuesday evening was to allow the Council

Civil Defence team to get on with the job and take action if it

needed to.

“The rainfall didn’t reach predicted levels, however taking a

precautionary approach and declaring meant we had access to

powers and resources to evacuate low-lying settlements such as

the upper and lower Selwyn Huts if necessary. We were also able to

place other agencies on standby to assist,” she says.

Coes Ford, Chamberlains Ford and Whitecliffs campgrounds

were closed to campers for two nights due to the high level of the

Selwyn River.

The Council would like to thank the community for its support and

cooperation during the extreme weather event. Thanks also to our

community response teams, staff, contractors and volunteers for

their work.

You can join Selwyn Gets Ready to receive vital emergency

information relevant to the area where you live. Messages are sent

via email and more urgent messages requiring immediate action will

be sent to your mobile selwyn.getsready.net.

Water meters installed in

Southbridge and Rakaia Huts

Southbridge and Rakaia Huts are the latest townships in line for the

rollout of water meters across the district’s water supplies.

Installation of water meters at households connected to these

supplies will begin early next month, and is scheduled to be

completed by late April.

Around 90% of Council supply households across the district are

already on meters, and this project will complete installations at

around 315 properties in Southbridge and 106 in Rakaia Huts.

Metering has been shown to reduce water consumption as it links

water use to charging – so households that use less water benefit

from lower charges, while those using more pay higher charges.

Households with average water use will find their total charge

remains similar to what they currently pay. You can help avoid

incurring extra charges by monitoring your water use – see

www.selwyn.govt.nz/watermetering for more information and tips

on how to read your water meter.

Backyard Critters

SELWYN TIMES

Slimy slug-like predators of the worm world

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

TERRESTRIAL flatworms are

flat, slug-like, free-living soil

fauna with unsegmented bodies.

The dimensions of flatworms,

also known as turbellaria, are

not constant as they can change

from short (1cm) and fat, to long

(12cm) and skinny (0.5cm) at

will.

New Zealand is thought to

have about 100 species, with

numerous colours and patterns.

However, individuals are usually

striped, dotty or a single colour.

Flatworms are very similar to

slugs; being delicate, soft-bodied,

susceptible to desiccation and

the use of mucous.

They are easily damaged and

collected specimens usually die

and decompose very quickly to

a liquid.

Being sensitive to sun, these

critters are always found in cool,

moist, snug places against soil.

They’re often hiding under plant

pots, plastic, flat wood, pavers,

and the like.

Their ability to squeeze into

small holes and crevices helps

them locate and consume earthworms,

slugs and snails.

These predators use their

mucus to catch and digest

their prey, which is swallowed

through their mouth located

half-way along its underside.

Pale coloured egg capsules can

be observed in the flatworm’s

body prior to laying, at which

time they darken to a shiny black

ball about 5mm in diameter.

The most well-known New

Zealand flatworm species is

arthurdendyus triangulatus.

This voracious earthworm

SLIMY: Terrestrial flatworms

are similar to slugs. (Above) –

Flatworms lay pale coloured

egg capsules.

predator has become a major

threat overseas to European

earthworm species. Each flatworm

can eat at least one earthworm

per week.

Flatworms are thought to

hitch-hike in pot plants transported

around the world.

Lincoln students race to start year

LINCOLN University has

started off the academic year

with its own version of reality

television show, The Amazing

Race.

The university welcomed its

new students recently by getting

them to race around the campus

using an app called the Wild

Goose Chase.

The race was organised by the

Lincoln University Students’

Association and featured an egg

challenge, students drawing with

their non-dominant hand and a

gumboot throwing competition.

The association also gave out

goody bags and pots of noodles

on the day.

Other activities included

giant inflatable balls and

music.

A media spokesman said

the race was a different way

for students to get to know the

Lincoln campus.

The university’s academic

year started last week, while its

orientation week started earlier

this month.

inflatable balls. (Right) – Lincoln University Students’

WEEDONS AND Sefton

have seized the early

competition.

Weedons defeated

Leeston-Southbridge

Waikirikiri

may join

Canty hockey

league

A VOTE will be taken on

whether to affiliate Waikirikiri

to the Canterbury Hockey

Association on Wednesday

night.

If the vote at the association’s

annual meeting is in favour of

the affiliation, Waikirikiri will

be able to enter teams into the

Canterbury senior competition

in a staged basis over a number

of years.

A vote in favour would mean

the year 7/8 Kwik Sticks 11-aside

boys and girls, senior division

three (year 9 up to under-18)

boys and girls and the mid-week

open men’s and women’s teams

will be able to be entered this

year.

Waikirikiri club president

Lyndal Marshall says it is an

exciting development which will

allow them to bring new players

into the game and give them a

stage on which to represent their

local club.

Waikirikiri Hockey was

formed in 2017. Until the club’s

formation, players had to travel

to the city to join a club.

In its first year, the club attracted

120 junior hockey players

in 13 teams, of which 70 per

cent were new to the game.

Tight schedule for Lincoln Uni athlete

• By Andrew King

AFTER competing in the

Canterbury track and field

championships at the weekend,

Lincoln University student Tegan

Duffy will have little time to

recover.

The 17-year-old is about to head

off to the New Zealand track and

field and then the Australian

junior championships – with

all three events in the space of a

month.

She has also just started

studying land and property

management at Lincoln, works

part-time at the Commodore

Hotel, and trains six times a week

at the ​Old Boys’ United Athletic

Club.

She won the under-20 long

jump at the Canterbury track and

field championships in Timaru

with a distance of 5.64m in her

fifth jump. However, Duffy didn’t

compete in her other specialised

event, the 100m hurdles.

She is set to compete in both

events at the New Zealand track

and field championships from

March 9-11 in Hamilton before

flying to Sydney on March 12 for

the Australian junior athletics

championships from March 14-

18.

“So basically I have to get back,

repack and head off again,” she

said.

Tegan said she started

athletics as a hobby but now has

aspirations for bigger things.

“I am looking ahead to the

junior worlds and what I need to

do to qualify for that,” she said.

She has to pay her own way to

attend the championships, and

said it would cost about $2000 to

attend the Hamilton and Sydney

events.

“I have gone to the local

community board to ask for

funding and my nana Faye Kerr

has helped me fundraise with

my mum, Toni, and we have held

some quiz nights. Also, nana has

a few friends that have chipped

in,” she said.

For the past month, Tegan has

been training harder than

usual and has been pushing

herself to see what her body can

endure.

“There has been a lot of harder

running and pushing myself as

hard as possible. The weights are

heavier, all of that,” she said.

ATHLETE: Tegan Duffy, seen

here competing at last year’s

New Zealand track and field

championships, will be back

at the same event next month

looking for success in the long

jump and 100m hurdles.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

Reliving special

memories

Many people have memories of their

early cars.

Paul’s story began 50 years ago when he

met Ev. They were just 13 years old and

students at Buller High School in Westport.

On leaving high school, Ev shifted to

Christchurch and Paul became a mechanic’s

apprentice at Westport’s Ford dealership.

He purchased his first car, a 100E Ford

Prefect in 1972, a typical boy racer car of

the day with a 105E engine, GT camshaft,

Weber carburettor, lowered fat feet, and it

was noisy.

A year later, Paul moved up to his first

Cortina, a 1963 1500cc model, beginning

his love of Cortinas.

“It was a great car, having started its life

with the Sisters of Mercy at the Westport

Catholic convent,” says Paul.

In early 1974, just before he married

Ev who had moved back to Westport to

begin nursing training at Buller Hospital,

Paul purchased a 1965 Aeroflow 1500cc

Cortina. For their honeymoon, they took

the Cortina on a road trip through the

Haast Pass, returning via Christchurch.

At the time, the Haast Pass was under

construction with numerous road works,

temporary one lane bridges and a shingle

road between lakes Paringa and Hawea.

“I enjoyed drifting around the corners

without shaking the car to pieces from the

corrugations in the road,” explains Paul.

Eventually the 1965 Cortina was sold and

over the ensuing years, Paul bought and

sold a number of cars including two more

Cortinas.

By 2017, with fond memories of his

1965 Aeroflow 1500cc Cortina, and Ev and

Paul’s three daughters having grown up and

moved out, the desire to own another Mark

1 Cortina led to Paul purchasing a 1965

‘daily runner’.

Paul made a few minor mechanical

repairs, touched-up the paintwork, had the

front seat re-upholstered, and fitted a new

radiator and interior carpet. Then, armed

with spare parts and a well-equipped

toolbox, Ev and Paul set off on a road trip to

mark 50 years since they first met, retracing

the route of their honeymoon.

During the first leg from Christchurch to

Westport, a few minor repairs were needed

however Paul says the car performed

extremely well. They played 1970s music

and stopped to take photos at the same

places as on their first trip.

“It was awesome, a really great trip down

memory road,” says Paul.

Paul noticed a few differences: more

vehicles overtook them this time round,

more motorhomes and tourists on the

road, Lake Pukaki looked quite different

with the dam completed, and there was no

need to de-dust the clothes as the road is

now tarsealed.

“In 1974, the cost of fuel for a trip from

Westport to Hokitika in the same model

Cortina cost $3.48. In 2017 it cost us

$43.62,” advises Paul who says it was a trip

of a lifetime.

“To do the trip again in the same year

1965 Cortina was extra special,” adds Ev.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Auto Electrical Expertise close by

The frequently hot weather experienced

this summer could mean your vehicle’s air

conditioning needs servicing to ensure

your heater functions properly over winter.

Your vehicle’s auto electrical needs

are easily sorted with Newlands Auto

Electrical close by in Rolleston.

The team at Newlands are specialists

in auto electrical work, as well as air

conditioning and radio communications

for commercial and personal vehicles.

They also carry a wide range of LED

lights. These include 4WD light bars;

directional or standard rear lighting

for a vehicle or trailer (for brakes and

indicators); courtesy LED lighting suitable

for a camper, caravan, bus or other larger

vehicle; and LED lighting for agricultural

machinery.

They only stock quality fittings, sold

at competitive prices. This is due to their

direct buying capacity, with brands such as

Hella and Narva available in store, along

with Newlands’ own brand of LED lighting

products fitted with Philips parts, ensuring

they are long-lasting reliable lights.

In addition to lighting, Newlands

Auto Electrical carries a broad range of

automotive products at their retail store in

Rolleston. Whether you require a battery,

electrical products, communications

equipment, power tools, hand tools or

windscreen wiper blades, they can help.

If they do not have what you need, they

will do their best to have it there within the

day or overnight, and will deliver if you are

not too far from Rolleston.

Newlands has the latest technological

top-of-the-line digital battery tester

meaning they can quickly and safely test

your battery. With no need to disconnect

the battery, it will take just a few minutes so

pop in before the weather cools for a quick

check so your battery is capable of doing

the job when winter comes. You might also

like to book your vehicle in for a pre-winter

check.

Worn out wiper blades mean poor

visibility and driving in inclement

conditions extremely dangerous yet

replacing these is a task that is often

overlooked. If your wiper blades are

streaking or over a year old, they

will be past their best and not up

to the job. A visit to Newlands

will sort the problem and if you

take your vehicle to them for a

WOF inspection, they will also

check your wiper blades and fit

new ones should you require.

The reliable experienced team at

Newlands Auto Electrical include electrical

technicians, a radio communications

engineer, and parts salespeople. They can

take care of all aspects of your auto electrical

needs in a fast and efficient manner. After

all, this is a company with over 80 years’

experience in the business.

With Newlands Auto Electrical close

by at 825 Jones Road on the Izone side

of Rolleston, there is no need to drive

into town for your auto electrical needs.

Just give them a call on 03 347 3476 or

0800 152771, or pop into their premises

between 8am and 5pm, Monday-Friday

where they will be more than happy to

assist you.

Late summer greenhouse tips

Keep productivity levels

pumping by prioritising

some key tasks. Diana

Noonan reports

1. Water warning

Don’t water and work among

your plants at the same time.

Late summer sees greenhouse

plants struggling to support

ripening fruit and masses of

foliage. When you water, foliage

becomes heavier, and plants

lean in all directions, including

over pathways. Foliage also

becomes more fragile as it takes

in moisture. If you’re working

around your plants immediately

after watering, you’re likely to

knock off fruit and break stems,

and the last thing you want this

late in the season is damaged

plant material that then becomes

a site for disease to take hold.

Water early in the morning and

keep out of the greenhouse until

the warmth of the day has dried

the plants off.

2. Stress busters

Plants have been in the ground

for several months now, and are

becoming exhausted from the

task of producing and ripening

fruit. This kind of stress is the

open door through which pests

and disease leap when given half

a chance, so pamper your plants

like never before. Water deeply

to avoid soil drying out. Nourish

plants with low nitrogen liquid

feed (nitrogen at this stage in the

season will only promote leaf

growth at the expense of ripening

fruit). Be more vigilant with

ventilation to avoid heat stress.

4. Pick and pinch

Plants have enough to

contend with in late summer

without having to support fruit

that’s already mature. Harvest

as soon as possible and take

extra care to ensure you don’t

damage stems as you pick. If

you’re in a region where flowers

or young green fruit just don’t

have a chance of developing or

reaching maturity, or even of

growing to a size where it can be

picked to ripen inside, nip out

the no-hopers. Sacrificing them

will make way for other fruit to

mature more quickly.

5. Prune

If your vines are tapping on the

roof of the greenhouse, it’s time to

nip out the centres. Excess height

will only shade plants below.

Besides which, at this stage,

further flowers are unlikely to

have time to produce fruit that

will mature. Prune off dying

lower foliage Urban to avoid Section

it attracting

disease.

Urban Section

BUMPER CROP:

Don’t work around

greenhouse plants

heavy with water –

you risk damaging

them. Harvest as

soon as possible

and save your

plants the work of

further supporting

fruit that is already

mature.

6. Open those vents!

Fungal diseases are

synonymous with late summer.

Encourage airflow by opening

vents in the morning and leaving

them partially open at night.

When days are warm, leave the

door open but remember to leave

a netting covering over the gap –

birds are as keen on ripening fruit

as you are.

7. Out with the old, in with

the new

If a plant is failing at this late

stage, don’t dilly-dally – whip

it out of the ground. The space

left behind will allow for better

airflow or, if you have another

plant to go in its place, top up

the soil with fresh compost and

animal manure (taking care not

to disturb the roots of

neighbouring plants) and pop it

in.

8. Waste not, want not

Blossom-end rot and tomato

split are all late summer problems

but they don’t spell the end of a

fruit. Keep an eye on your harvest

and pick any fruit with signs of

early disease or imperfections.

Washed and trimmed, they can

be popped in the freezer until you

have enough for processing into

chutney or soup.

9. Keep supporting

Your plants are tired. You may

be too, but it’s more important

than ever to keep vining growth

well supported. Get out there with

the ties before the plants bend

over and snap or are weighed

down and broken with the weight

of fruit.

10. Select your seed

Prepare for seed saving

by observing the success, or

otherwise, of your plants and

selecting fruit from the best. If

you want to save seed that will

produce fruit the same as that

from which it has come, select

from non-hybrid plants.

Lawns Love

Autumn

We are about to embark on one of the best times of year to tend to your

lawns. The temperatures are dropping so get new lawns down, and tend

to your existing one as well. Preparation is key for lawn establishment,

so make sure you put the good stuff down if you want the good stuff to

grow. Our Lawn Construction Mix is ideal for preparing, and then sowing

in. When choosing your seed, make sure it is fit for purpose so you get the

best results from it. The seed is designed for different climates and areas

(shady, full sun all day, wet areas) so talk to your local seed specialist to get

advice on what seed is going to suit your needs.

For existing lawns, a lush green look is something we strive for. This

doesn’t come without some work. Continuous maintenance is required,

fertilising, watering, mowing, and removing weeds to name a few.

Intelligro Lawn Fertiliser, and slow release fertilisers are packed with

essential nutrients for growth and development, greening, and disease

protection. Make sure you fertilise early morning, or late evening and

water thoroughly afterward. For patches that need repairing, you can use

our 20L Premium Lawn Soil. This mix is great for those small jobs, and you

can sow your seed straight into it. Please bear in mind that any products

that contain soil are not “weed free”, and weed seeds spread in a variety

of ways, so there is a chance of weed growth.

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

or visit our facebook page: www.facebook.com/igro.co.nz

NEW ENTRANCE: 261 Manion Road, Weedons

Access to Intelligro from Manion Road is now available from both the

Weedons Ross Road end, and Curraghs Road entrances.

Faringdon Summer Skate

Jam Tai Tapu

Wednesday, 3.30-5.30pm

of age groups. Something for

all abilities. There is a learn to

Paws for Reading

Thursday, 3.30pm, 3.45pm,

4pm and 4.15pm

Read to a furry friend. Is your

child shy or reluctant about reading?

Do they need to gain confidence

in reading aloud? Reading

to a gentle and patient furry

friend can help. Selwyn libraries

are partnering with members of

the Selwyn Dog Training Club to

offer “Paws for Reading”. Book

your child in to spend 15min

reading to a friendly, carefully

selected dog.Can this help your

child’s reading? Similar programmes

have been shown to

improve reading fluency between

10 to 30 per cent over time, however,

no results are guaranteed.

Take a book that your child has

read before or choose one from

the library before the session.

Most sessions will be on the

mobile library bus. Dogs will be

monitored by its owner/handler.

A library staff member will also

be on hand at all times during

the session, however, the sessions

encourage children to read

to the dog with minimal adult

intervention. Do not book your

child into a session if they are

nervous or anxious around dogs.

Also, do not book your child into

a session if they have a known

allergy to dogs.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

A home you will

love to live in

The new Faringdon showhome village is a great place to see building and home

décor ideas and while there, check out Jennian Homes’ new showhome.

This cleverly designed and very well

appointed four bedroom 224sqm family

home will have you imagining living there.

“We chose one of our favourite plans,”

says Sue Prendergast, Client Liaison,

Jennian Homes’ Canterbury North.

From the street, the mix of Cedar and

Rockcote plaster finish cladding is striking

while the well-appointed siting of the

house on its 663sqm section takes full

advantage of indoor/outdoor living while

maximising the sun through all aspects of

the day.

There is a large open plan kitchen,

dining and living area as well as a separate

lounge/media room.

“The kitchen is the heart of any home so

we wanted to make it a real feature in our

showhome,” adds Sue.

Lighting, tiles, careful design, a scullery,

and great utilisation of indoor/outdoor

flow all contribute to achieving this.

Those who enjoy relaxing in a lounger

with a good book or glass of wine will love

the extensive deck. This can be accessed

from the dining area, kitchen or master

bedroom. A sheltered recess off the

kitchen offers a great place for breakfast

or a morning coffee while the portico out

from the living space is a perfect spot for

alfresco dining. The result is a peaceful

enchanting setting overlooking the

professionally landscaped garden complete

with water feature.

The master bedroom has both walk-in

robe and a plush ensuite, complete with

generous walk-in shower. The large main

bathroom has a freestanding bath with

tiled feature wall as a backdrop giving

the room a really luxuriant look and feel.

There is a separate toilet and laundry,

while located beside the true double

garage is a storage room which would be

equally ideal as a small workshop.

This home boasts many quality

characteristics like the feature wallpapered

walls, floor to ceiling tiling in both

bathrooms, hardwood decking and

television recesses that make you feel like

you do not want to leave.

“It’s a beautiful home. Our brief was a

designer home for a young modern family

and it’s certainly met this while allowing

us to showcase many different techniques

that can be applied when building a home

these days,” explains Sue.

Jennian Homes’ new Rolleston

showhome has been designed for family

living. You will find it at 7 Lemonwood

Drive in Faringdon; open for viewing

12noon to 4pm, Wednesdays to Sundays.
