SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Wednesday February 28 2018 9 Your Local Views 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. Two Rivers Community Trust community services stream manager Bev Elder responds to Selwyn Times’ article on Abbeyfield Ellesmere’s request for the district council to write off, as a grant, its loan to the project FINANCE: Abbeyfield volunteers have asked the district council to write off a loan to the complex. 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. Wedding? Visit Smith and Boston! We said: If National leader contender Amy Adams had to poach anyone from the Labour party, it would be Annette King. You said: Kyle Falcon – Jacinda so she can show National how to run a country Lois Dalton – I love the idea that she has chosen a person who has retired. We said: Two men are lucky to be alive after a crash with another vehicle near Rolleston sent their vehicle somersaulting into a tree line before it burst into flames. You said: Vanessa Ann Oswell – Unbelievably lucky for both them and the other car and thankfully the fire being contained so quickly. Was a horrible scene to have on your doorstep.
