SELWYN SOUNDS organisers

are guaranteeing changes to

the bar set-up for 2019, to avoid

similar problems to Saturday’s

event.

Just under 10,000 poured

into the Lincoln Domain event

to see a star studded day-long

16 Page glossy lift out

line-up headed by Jimmy

Barnes.

But long queues to buy

alcoholic beverages and the fact

it sold out early sent festival-goers

to social media to complain.

Promoter David Parlane

said more bars or a bigger bar

would be in place for next

year’s event.

“It’s our second year in, we’ve

learnt and we’ll improve,” he

said. Apart from the beverage

issues, Mr Parlane said the concert

was a “blast.”

“It was a massive day, a massive

crowd, we put on some

fantastic acts. It was a concert

with some really great international

acts that entertained just

Pages 16-17

It was a ‘blast’ says promoter

under 10,000, it was a bit of a

blast.”

“It was a great music concert.

We are not a wine and beer

festival, we’re a music concert,

that’s what you come for and

that’s what we run and we ran

that extremely well,” he said.

Planning was well under way

for next year’s event, he said.

Concern

over

quarry

truck

numbers

• By Emily O’Connell

ONE-HUNDRED-and-twenty-five

truck movements every hour.

That’s what Weedons and

Templeton residents may face if the

proposed quarry near their areas goes

ahead.

Fulton Hogan says the quarry,

which will be on a 170ha section

of land on Dawsons, Curraghs and

Jones Rds, will be there for up to 40

years.

The company told Western News it

is anticipating 1500 truck movements

in or out of the site a day.

Templeton Residents’ Association

chairman Garry Kilday is concerned

about the large number of trucks on

roads which are already busy.

“Fifteen hundred will go past a

specific point everyday over a 12-

hour period. Now that’s 125 truck

movements per hour,” he said.

Fulton Hogan said the time and

days the quarry would be open

was part of its resource consent

application, which the company won’t

divulge yet.

from the editor’s desk

ANOTHER SELWYN Sounds has come

and gone, and with it has been the good,

bad and possibly the ugly.

Yes, the organisers will have to make

some changes for 2019 if they want to keep

getting those return festival-goers.

The time it took to buy a beer, and the fact it ran out, was

simply not good enough. The event is now bearing the brunt of

those mistakes via bad publicity on Facebook and elsewhere.

The time it took to get out of the venue has also been a talking

point. But it wasn’t all doom and gloom. Far from it.

There was plenty of water, soft drink and food stalls, and of

course the music was great.

But they must get it right for everyone next year.

Delay for Leeston cycleway

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RISING COSTS: The Leeston-Doyleston cycleway will be

delayed because the project is over budget.

THE LEESTON-Doyleston

cycleway will be delayed because

the project is over budget by

more than half a million dollars.

The cost of the project has

risen from its original estimation

of $204,000 to $895,000.

As a result, the district council

will postpone the project and

re-introduce it in the draft 2018-

2028 Long Term Plan process.

Consultation on the revised

project and funding is expected

to be re-opened for public consultation

in April.

It comes after the district

council ran into a number of

technical challenges during its

design phase of the cycleway.

The main issue was getting the

correct slope for the cycleway so

pedestrians and cyclists can use

it comfortably.

The district council has had

problems with low-lying land

along the road which is prone to

flooding.

It also needs to seek approvals

to use private land alongside

Leeston Rd.

The idea for a cycleway along

Leeston Rd was first put forward

to the district council in 2014.

The district council’s transportation

asset manager Andrew

Mazey said survey and design

work has since been carried out.

He said there was a requirement

to make it as safe as possible

by shifting it further away

from the edge of the road and

passing traffic.

Selwyn Times first reported

in August, 2016, a link between

Doyleston and Leeston was

put into the annual budget for

2016/2017.

The district council’s transportation

asset manager Andrew

Mazey said survey and design

work has since been carried out.

There was a requirement to

make it as safe as possible by

shifting it further away from

the edge of the road and passing

traffic. Mr Mazey said it is

planned to have available in the

2018/19 programme.

The district council has been

in discussions with the New

Zealand Transport Agency on

having the project subsided as

part of its 2018-21 Land Transport

Programme.

If successful, funding needed

to be provided by the district

council will be reduced by 51 per

cent.

District councillor Pat McEvedy

said he does not consider

the project over budget - it has

just got a more realistic budget

now.

“You don’t really know what

the budget is going to be until

you actually get the other details.

“I know our community is

looking forward to us having

this so I am sure they want us to

make sure we do a really good

job of it ,” Mr McEvedy said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Community

board told

off for poor

reporting

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MALVERN Community Board

members have been given a rap

over the knuckles for not getting

their monthly reports in.

Board chairwoman Jenny

Gallagher told members in her

chair’s report she was again disappointed

that not everyone had

sent their reports.

“How as a board are we expected

to help our committees if we

do not receive reports on issues

that they have?” she said.

The reports cover committee

meetings board members have attended

over the month and issues

in need of addressing.

The board held its monthly

meeting last week. Each board

member is expected to supply a

report.

Mrs Gallagher told Selwyn

Times it makes it very difficult

when community committees

make requests through their

board members.

“The reason behind me wanting

reports is so we can help our

communities because that is what

we are there for,” she said.

Tai Tapu’s new principal

‘finding the right balance’

Tai Tapu

School

principal

John Kane

writes

about his

new role

I WAS appointed to the

position of principal at

Tai Tapu School at the

beginning of this year.

Prior to this I was

principal at Star of the Sea

School in Sumner.

My career in education

began 22 years ago and

I have taught in remote

Aboriginal missions in

the Australian outback,

private preparatory schools

in central London and for

the last 10 years here in

Christchurch.

It has been wonderful

teaching in different

countries and at both

ends of the educational

spectrum.

I reside in Sumner with

my wife, Michelle and

four-year-old daughter Isla.

The one constant in

education is change.

It’s incredible to see how

education has changed

with modern technology

and 21st-century teaching

and learning practices.

That being said a lot has

remained the same and so

it should.

For me as a school

principal it is about finding

the right balance between

modern teaching practices

and fundamental teaching

practices that have been

around for decades.

Schools should be a

reflection of our changing

society.

We cannot expect to have

a 1980s view of the world

and then teach with that

mindset.

The world is changing

by the minute and as

educators we need to do

our best to equip our

children with the necessary

skills, knowledge and

values to enable them

to make a worthwhile

contribution to society in

the future.

More than anything

else I want our kids to

be thoughtful and kind

citizens.

I am very honoured to

be the Tai Tapu School

principal.

The school has a

wonderful reputation in

educational circles and the

school has been completely

redesigned and built to

accommodate 21st-century

teaching and learning.

In my humble opinion

the learning environment

has little impact on

learning.

It can certainly assist

and facilitate things such

as technology but it is the

quality of the teachers in

each learning environment

which will have the greatest

impact on learning.

I’m very proud to be the

leader of a wonderfully

creative, innovative and

experienced teaching team

and this is backed by a

very supportive parent

community.

•From page 1

Mr Kilday said the company

had “completely thrown their

neighbourhood and community

into chaos.”

A Fulton Hogan spokesman

said if resource consent is

granted for the quarry “it

will not operate until new

access roads have been built to

accommodate the increase in

truck movements.”

He said the company was

aware of the community’s

concerns about more truck

movements.

“We intend to work

collaboratively with the

community and local authorities

to position our quarry entrance

so that the majority of truck

movements will access and exit

via State Highway 1, rather than

using local roads,” he said.

‘Water and Light’, it’s all around us and nowhere

more so than on the Banks Peninsula.

As small outcrop of volcanic rock jutting out into

the Southern Ocean we are surrounded on all

sides, and nowhere

is that interplay

between water and

light more evident.

The Little River

Gallery is proud to

host Philip Beadle’s

latest work, inspired

by the landscapes

of the Plains and

Peninsula.

Using a mixture of oil, watercolour, drypoint

and monotype, Philip’s work is as varied as the

landscapes he depicts.

Christchurch based Philip Beadle, whether

working with the human form or drawing

inspiration from the low sun on water agitated

by wind, uses the Canterbury environment to

inform his work.

Warm and inviting, cold and forgiving, water

and light are constant but also forever changing.

‘Water and Light’ is showing at

Little River Gallery from 10th March

to 4th April.

Dave Topp

Long-serving committee man

Tawera Memorial Hall

Committee chairman

Dave Topp, 73, has

been serving on the

committee for

nearly 20 years. He

spoke to Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

How long have you lived

in Springfield for and what

brought you out here?

I have been here for more than

20 years. What brought me here

was I married my second wife.

She was from Springfield.

Has the township changed a

lot?

It has changed a lot. Probably

more in the last few years. There

have been quite a few things

done around the place. We

have got a very active township

committee and they do a great

job. There have been quite a few

new houses in the last few years.

After the railway moved out, the

town was cut in half. It slowly

built back up. There are new

people who moved into the area.

A cross-section of people – some

old and some younger.

How long have you been on

the Tawera Memorial Hall

Committee for and why have

you stayed there?

I have been on there for 19

years this year. I think a lot

has changed there in that time.

Back in those days, it was pretty

relaxed, we had meetings every

month. Now there is a bit more

to it. You do a bit more paper

work. I have enjoyed it, this is

my third term as chairman. It

has been a learning curve for

me. Most importantly, dealing

with other people. I do a lot of

dealings with the district council

and the people I have dealt with

from the council have been very

good and very helpful. I’ve been

lucky, they have always helped

me in the things I needed to do

right from the start. We had a

lot of help and support from the

TALENTED: Springfield resident Dave Topp holding the trophies he has won over the years.

Malvern Community Board.

Is there any reason why this

hall is so special to you?

It is a great hall. We have

had a lot of comments over the

years from people who come to

Springfield. We have had people

say it is probably one of the best

halls in Selwyn.

What was your biggest

achievement on the hall

committee?

We have achieved quite a bit,

especially in the last few years.

We have upgraded the kitchen,

we put up a new boundary fence,

we have done quite a few things

inside. Just recently, we did

internal painting – we have still

got some more to do but we are

pretty good. I have got a great

committee – all great people

willing to help.

Does the hall have any

historical significance?

When the hall was first built,

the money was raised by the

committee. That was a pretty big

thing. It is over 60-years-old. It

didn’t cost as much as it would

cost today but it was a great

achievement.

Has anyone significant visited

the hall?

No, but years ago they used

to have films once a week every

Saturday night. They had dances

on a regular basis. They used

to have interesting people.

They have got a local artist

Mel Parsons, she has had two

concerts here. We have got local

groups here who do dancing

several nights a week. Some of

the locals have a ball once a year.

You have supported the

Malvern A & P Show for a long

time and you do well in their

veggie competition. Tell me

about that?

They have a great competition

every year in the vegetable

section of the Malvern show. I

have been growing vegetables for

about 50 years. I have actually

won the trophy for the last nine

years. Nineteen years I have

been an exhibitor at the Malvern

show.

What has made you support

the Malvern show for so long?

It is a local show and I like

to support the locals. It is wellorganised

and a great family day

out. Very seldom the weather

packs a sad. Last year, it was a

bit damp but it is a great country

show. The next show is March

24.

Are you passionate about

gardening and vegetables?

Yes I am.

Do you have any top

gardening tips?

I think the most important

thing is getting the ground

preparation right. Get fertiliser

and water and watch them grow.

Get the weeds down.

The trouble up here in

Springfield is we are at a higher

altitude so you have got to be

a bit careful, especially in the

spring because the frost gets

the plants. You have got to be

prepared to cover them.

in changing Springfield

This year has been pretty good

but some years we get frost right

up until December. Every year is

a bit different.

What is your favourite

vegetable to grow?

I like most things really.

Carrots and parsnips. Parsnips

can be tricky to grow. It was a

wee bit trickier last year because

it was a bit drier.

In the last few years, I have

been growing pumpkins. I think

this year, I have got one quite

big and they usually get up to

50kg.

You often give your vegetables

away at the Malvern show?

We have got a pretty big

garden and I like to give stuff

away at times. Sometimes you

get too many cauliflowers and

can’t eat them all at the same

time. You can freeze some of that

stuff of course.

What else are you passionate

about?

I play indoor bowls at winter

time. I have been playing bowls

for more than 50 years. We have

still got a club functioning –

Springfield Indoor Bowls. We

have been pretty good in the

Malvern competitions.

We have our ups and downs.

The main thing is you enjoy

yourself and that is what it is all

about. You meet a lot of other

people.

We have got about 12 members

I think, which is not too bad.

We had less for a while. We were

struggling. Some of the members

travel from Darfield every week

to play here.

Have you had many

successes?

I’ve had quite a few wins. I

won the men’s singles champions

of champions competition

in Malvern. I have won it

twice. That was a pretty good

achievement for me. There

were five different clubs in the

Malvern area. I was pretty

wrapped with that. Probably

don’t play as well now as I used

to.

I hear your wife Judith does a

DIGGING IN: Dave Topp has won several awards for his vegetables at the Malvern show.

lot of work for the community

and has a gift for cooking?

She is passionate about

cooking. She takes suppers to

the meetings, she has got a great

passion for cooking. People

comment on it. She does as much

work at the hall as I do.

Do you have a favourite dish

she makes?

I like them all really. She

makes a really good egg and

bacon pie. Her fruit cake is pretty

good and also her chocolate cake

– people rave over that.

How long have you been

married for?

We are 21 years this year. We

met years ago – 50 odd years

ago. I worked in Springfield in

those days. We met up then and

went out for a while then we sort

of drifted apart and went our

separate ways. Then Judith lost

her husband 22 years ago and we

met up again.

Where did you grow up?

I was born in Rotherham,

North Canterbury. Born at the

local hospital there – there is

no hospital any longer. That is

where I was born and bred. I

went to primary school there

and secondary at Rangiora High

School. I worked at Springfieldthat

was my first job and then

Ashburton. I mainly did farm

work.

Are there any projects you

are excited about that are

happening in Springfield?

They are putting a walkway in

between the Springfield Domain

and the township. Just about

completed actually. They have

done a great job. People can walk

from the camp or anywhere they

want. They can walk on the side

of the road – they have got their

own separate walkway and that

has been a great project.

You are pretty busy, is

there anything else you are

passionate about that we

missed?

I am pretty passionate about

vintage machinery. I have got

my own vintage tractor. I am

quite involved in that. I go

to vintage meetings around

Malvern. I have also been up to

North Canterbury and Waipara.

I am passionate about vintage

machinery, it is a good hobby. I

am in the process of restoring a

tractor plough at the moment.

Haven’t had time to finish it

yet but I am working on it. My

vintage tractor is a David Brown

cropmaster, 1951. It does use a

bit of fuel but I don’t use it that

much. It is great to see people

restoring and preserving vintage

machinery because a lot of it has

been lost over the years.

We have got our big vintage

event at Kirwee on the 23rd,

24 th , 25 th of this month. It is the

20 th anniversary of the New

Zealand Vintage Machinery

Club. That is a big weekend.

It is the same weekend as the

Malvern show. I will take my

tractor there.

Explore the heritage

of Hororata and Beyond

The Hororata Community Trust’s project, ‘Heritage of

Hororata and Beyond’ allows people to discover the

area’s diverse and rich pioneering history. Heritage

properties in the area include Gunyah Country Estate,

Terrace Station, Homebush Stables, Cotons’ Cottage

and Hororata Museum, Washpen Falls, Glentunnel

Museum, Steventon Homestead, Rockwood Station, The

Point Station, St John’s Church and Coleridge Power

Station. Many of the properties have public open days

throughout the year or are open by appointment; details

can be found at www.hororata.org.nz.

This year the project is focussing on the Heritage

of Water, learning how private and county schemes

developed from the late 19th century. A bus tour is

planned to follow the journey of water from the high

country to the plains. This will take place on Sunday 11

March and has proved to be so popular it has sold out.

For those who have

missed out on the

bus tour there is

still the opportunity

to explore the

district’s heritage by

visiting five heritage

properties and

museums, making this

a great day to get out

and discover what the

district has to offer.

Terrace Station was the home of Sir John Hall and

is still lived in by his descendants. Sir John was the

parliamentary advocate for the Women’s Suffrage

movement and we are now celebrating the 125th

anniversary of this event. There will be a display and

information about the Women’s Suffrage movement and

other displays.

Gunyah Estate, built in

1912 by a son of Sir John

Hall, offers guided tours of

the homestead. At Guynah

you can stroll through the

gardens and discover the

original farm building.

Cotons’ Cottage and

Hororata Museum contain a wide range of artefacts,

archives and photographs relating to the history of our

district, including an automotive and musical displays.

Glentunnel Museum hosts an extensive collection of

items relating to the history of the area which has seen

much rural industrialism, particularly the pottery and

brickworks.

Rockwood Station has a historical homestead set within

a beautiful woodland garden which includes English trees

and rhododendrons, bordered by 100 acres of native

bush. Enjoy a picnic in the garden and a stroll on the

bushwalk.

Properties open on

11 March are:

• Terrace Station

• Gunyah Estate

• Cotons’ Cottage and

Hororata Museum

• Glentunnel Museum

• Rockwood Station

Properties will charge an entry

fee at their gate. Each property

offers something different and

a visit to them will provide a

varied and interesting glimpse

into our pioneering past.

From 10am – 2pm at the Hororata

Domain there will be a display

on the heritage of the rural

water scheme, information on

properties in the area and details

to help you find your way around.

A reader responds to the

article about Selwyn MP

Amy Adams’ concerns

over the impact the

Christchurch Southern

Motorway Stage 2 will

have on West Melton

roads

Julie Sims – The New

Zealand Transport Agency

is firing back to Amy Adams

purely because they do not

want to lose face.

We have lived in West

Melton for 11 years and that

particular corner at the BP

is very dangerous. I have

seen potential accident after

potential accident and it’s

only a matter of time before

somebody is killed. How do

we safely get our kids from

the Wilfield Residential

Sub-division to West Melton

School safely.

NZTA’s answer to that was

a piddly barrier just past the

intersection and right before

the 100km zone. My kids have

almost been collected at this

piddly crossing as cars go way

too fast down here and kids

don’t have the mental capacity

at primary school to judge

how fast a car is going.

We have been told that

NZTA will not put lights up at

the intersection of Weedons

Ross Rd and State Highway 73

as it’s too costly.

Bullocks to them as it has

become a very dangerous

intersection.

We said:

Strong gusts of wind

to roll on Christchurch

road in the winds on that

– That road is dicey at the

best of times with a car. I am

surprised the New Zealand

Transport Agency hasn’t

put restrictions on large

campervans.

Holly Traxler-Puddle – I

hope the people are safe but

I am sure the van insurance

does not cover a one-car

accident.

ManaMichelle Hardy

on Sunday and it was quite

calm on the Akaroa side but

once over the hill onto the

Broadfield School gets ready

One of Selwyn’s oldest primary schools, Broadfield, is about to celebrate

150 years. Georgia O’Connor-Harding reports

A LARGE celebration

stretching over three days

will begin on Friday to mark

Broadfield School’s 150th jubilee

celebrations.

They include a tour including a

tour of the Broadfield Gardens, a

formal jubilee dinner and fete.

The start of the jubilee will be

marked by the school’s oldest

living past pupil Ted Smith, 97

and a current pupil, his great,

great nephew Hayden Lineham,

7, planting a scarlet oak tree.

The last tree was planted 25

years ago when the school celebrated

its 125th jubilee.

The planting will be followed

by the cutting of a cake by the

school’s youngest pupil Matilda

Hansen, 5, and a past pupil

CELEBRATION: Broadfield

School’s oldest living pupil

Ted Smith will plant a scarlet

oak tree to mark the opening

the 150th jubilee.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Margaret Morrish – who was

awarded a Queen’s Service Medal

for services to heritage preservation.

Hayden is a fifth generation

family member to attend the

school.

His great, great great grandad

George first started at Broadfield

in 1889.

Hayden’s mother Rachel Smith

also attended the school and now

teaches part time.

She said the school is basically

the same as it was years ago and

it is lucky to still be open.

“The community is still really

involved with the school. It is a

real family atmosphere. All the

teachers know all the children’s

name,” Miss Smith said.

One of her favourite memories

was riding her pony to school -

which pupils can still do today if

they wish.

Her other two children will be

starting later this year.

Leading up to the event, the

school has put itself on the map

by running a fundraiser which

has led to the display of 20 scarecrows

in its Shands Rd paddock.

The scarecrow project was also

a way of promoting the school’s

fete on Sunday - which will feature

80 stalls, live entertainment

and entertainment for children

including a bouncy castle.

Businesses have got on board

with the project, either sponsoring

a scarecrow at $1000 or

delivering their own scarecrow to

get behind the event.

Flick the Fireman, Lieutenant

Dan, Pine Pete, Harvey Tech and

Adam Currie were some of the

scarecrows sponsored by businesses.

The funds raised will go

towards a towards a jubilee

pavilion structure to be installed

over the school’s netball court

area.

The project is estimated to cost

more than $100,000.

Jubilee committee member

Belinda McMillan, who came up

with the scarecrow initiative, said

the scarecrows are a fairly large

talking point in Selwyn.

She said the project has

been massive and everyone

now knows where Broadfield

School is.

Fun and exercise

Fire rages, homes at risk

to celebrate 150-year jubilee

“Before then you would tell

lots of people and they would say

“where is Broadfield School?”

Now you say it is where the

scarecrows are and they go “oh I

know”,” Miss McMillan said.

Broadfield was opened in 1868

and originally operated in the

Broadfield Methodist Church

before its first buildings were

built in 1870.

While the earliest roll of pupils

ranged from 50-60, the attendance

was a lot less and the ages

ranged from 4 to 18-years-old.

At this time schooling was not

free so a charge of £1 per annum

was made.

It was reported school was not

compulsory and not all children

attended due to difficulties in

paying.

The grounds of the original

school comprising of three acres

was purchased by the late Samuel

Early for £30.

The official opening for the

new school building was on

Wednesday, July 6, 1870.

The first teacher at the school

was 19-year-old George Cotton,

who served until 1872.

It was reported Mr Cotton

died about 1874 and about 250

adults and 50 children attended

his funeral.

The longest serving teacher at

the school is Linda Trolove, who

taught at the school from 1987,

until her retirement at the end of

2017.

While it now has a solid roll of

140 pupils, it has had a history of

fluctuating numbers.

In 1973 the roll dropped to

seven and there was talk of closing

the school but the moving

in of a family with two children

saved the school and it began to

increase.

Over the years the school has

had several extensions with the

most recent upgrade in 2016.

BIG PLANS: An artist impression of jubilee pavilion structure to

be installed over the school’s netball court area.

The Ministry of Education

approving building a two-classroom-equivalent

space plus an

administration area, principal’s

office, staff room and sick

bay.

The school’s original tennis

court area was removed but a

new court area was laid between

the field and playground.

*A large amount of history

sourced for the article was

researched and complied by

former teacher Cynthia Parker.

Live

Q&A:

A first from

Corrections.

Have you ever been interested

in a new career or a specific

job, but haven’t had the

chance to talk to anyone

about it before applying?

Probably, yes.

Here’s your chance to learn more about

a career with Corrections. If you’re

interested in an exciting and rewarding

career as a Corrections Officer, you can join

our Live Q&A event and have your questions

answered by Corrections Officers working

in New Zealand prisons. You will have the

opportunity to ask your questions to the panel

of working Corrections Officers and have them

answered in real time.

Over the last year we’ve held information

evenings in cities and towns across New Zealand.

Next week, for the first time you can have all

of your questions answered live online from

wherever you are. Our team will be on hand to

share their experiences about working to help

offenders change their lives and answer any

questions that you and your whanau might have.

Our Live Q&A event will make sure that you

have the information you need to decide on

a career with Corrections.

Kahore tetahi o tatou, taea te mahi,

nga mahi e taea o tatou katoa.

Not one of us can do the work as well

as all of us working together.

MEET YULIA

Yulia’s experience and passion for working with

people has ensured her smooth transition into the

role of Corrections Officer at Auckland Region

Women’s Corrections Facility.

“I joined Corrections at the beginning of 2017, I

had previously worked in a range of roles including

early childhood teacher, swimming instructor and

most recently caring for older people and people

living with disabilities.”

“I love working with people, and was looking

for a different challenge. I found the job through

Seek, and researched the role on the Corrections

website. I watched the videos of staff sharing their

experiences, which made me realise this was

something I could do. I dived in, accepted the

challenge, and I’ve never looked back.”

“I love what I do, and I think so many people out

there may not realise just how much impact they

can have building a career here.”

“I will never forget the journey, and where it has

taken me so far. There are a world of opportunities

out there – I can’t wait to see what’s next.”

Yulia McConaghan, Corrections Officer

Debate on importance of soil

Fire rages, homes at risk

Lincoln Envirotown trustee

Sue Jarvis writes about an

upcoming debate hosted

by radio personality Kim

Hill on the importance of

soil at Lincoln University

SOME SCIENTISTS state that

Britain may have as few as 60

harvests worth of usable soil left.

How many harvests do we

have left?

What does our soil need to

allow us to continue to grow

food?

Some countries have lost their

usable soil completely through

desertification.

Each year in June a planning

committee co-ordinated by the

Lincoln Envirotown Trust and

chaired by Dr Sue Jarvis starts

planning for the next hot topic

chaired by radio personality Kim

Hill.

The 2018 hot topic will be the

eighth, and as usual on a subject

of national and global environmental

significance – ‘Soil – are

we treating it like dirt?’

The planning starts with

choosing the topic.

This time it was quite easy

as last year’s topic was ‘Water

Andy MacFarlane Ants Roberts Mike Hedley Trish Fraser

Lincoln Envirotown.

The events are always well

attended, with last year’s event

packed out with a number of

people listening to the discussion

from the foyer.

The choice of panellists is

always hard and takes quite a bit

of discussion to find four panellists

to cover all the aspects of

the topic.

This year’s panellists are Trish

Fraser, a local who works at

the Lincoln Plant and Food

Reserach; Ants Roberts, who

works for Ravensdown; Mike

Hedley from Massey University;

and Andy MacFarlane, farmer/

company director.

These panellists, who are

experts in their field, will discuss

a broad range of relevant issues:

Are we degrading our soil

cover? Is this most precious of

resources in any danger? How

important is the ecosystem of

the soil, how do we ensure the

production of safe, healthy food

and what may go wrong in terms

of such things as pollution and

erosion?

The audience can join in the

– a global issue affecting New

Zealand’ and as one of the panellists

said: “It is hard to separate

the role of water from the role of

soil – we should be talking about

soil too.”

Then we need to invite some

people to the planning committee

who are experts about the

topic.

For the 2018 event we have

members from AgResearch,

Plant and Food Research,

Canterbury University as well

as, of course Lincoln University,

who is hosting the event, and

discussion during question time.

Get involved in this important

environmental issue on March

22 at 6.30pm, Stewart Lecture

Theatre 1, Lincoln University.

A $5 koha is requested with

refreshments provided, along

with beer tasting from The

Laboratory Lincoln and a cash

bar. Please be seated by 7.25pm.

Non-stop to the city!

Have you tried the 85 bus service from Rolleston to the city yet? If

you’ve been thinking about trying a new way to commute, this is a

great option.

The service, currently running on a trial basis, is designed to get

residents from Rolleston to the city as quickly as possible in the

mornings, and back home again in the afternoons.

There are three services to the city at the start of the day, and three

services home at the end of the day. As the route is designed to get

residents to and from the city as fast as possible, the driver can take

the quickest available route on the day.

Look out for this sign located at the bus stops in Rolleston where

the 85 picks up from.

Timetables are available at metroinfo.co.nz. We look forward to

seeing you on board soon!

Busy year ahead for

Youth Council

The Selwyn Youth Council has three fresh faces in 2018 with Chloe Duff, Ethan Richards-White

and Taylin Smith joining the group.

Chloe and Ethan both attend Rolleston College, where representation on the Youth Council was

particularly sought. Taylin Smith from Dunsandel attends Lincoln High School.

Paige Sullivan, Chair of the Youth Council, says all three new members are great role models.

“We’re excited for the new and existing members of the Youth Council to continue contributing to

Selwyn’s vibrant community.”

“Projects on the radar include the Selwyn Link bus service, What do YOUth think? consultations,

and the very first Selwyn Youth Survey. We’re excited to brainstorm other ideas at our orientation

weekend in Living Springs this month,” she says.

Selwyn Youth Council have held their first meeting of the year in February with meet-and-greets

and planning for the coming year. A team-building trip was held which involved games, a lunch

and ten-pin bowling.

The Youth Council are very proud to be able to continue to give back to the community through

their discretionary fund. The Selwyn Youth Project Fund is available to people or organisations

who would like to see youth thrive in Selwyn through events or activities which contribute to youth

wellbeing. Applications are assessed at the Youth Council’s monthly meetings. See the Council

website for more details and the application form.

Stepping Up – CV Preparation

Need help preparing a CV or cover letter? Come along to a CV

preparation session, held at Selwyn District Libraries. During these

sessions you will learn how to use digital tools to help you prepare

for employment, including creating a CV and cover letter and more.

All you need to do is book into a session, and bring information

about your employment skills, work and voluntary experiences (with

dates) to include in your CV. Sessions will be held at:

· Leeston Library, Monday 12 March

· Lincoln Library, Monday 19 March

· Rolleston Library, Monday 26 March

· Darfield Library, Monday 9 April

Sessions run from 9–11am.

Anyone aged 16 and over can attend, but bookings are essential –

see our website for details: www.selwynlibraries.co.nz.

It is recommended all attendees have an understanding of basic

English and basic computers knowledge.

Request a new bin

We often get enquiries through different channels from residents wanting

new bins.

If you would like to request a bin or a bin change you can go to our website www.selwyn.govt.

nz/request-bin-changes

Council offers three separate collection services: Recycling, rubbish and organics.

Recycling is collected fortnightly in 240 litre yellow lid wheelie bins or, if you are not on the

collection route but would like to participate in the recycling collection, you can order crates (or

wheelie bins) and transport them to a collection point. The kerbside collection covers over 90%

of the district’s households. Participation in the recycling collection service is compulsory for

households on the collection route, and is charged on an annual basis through the rates bill.

Organics such as garden and food waste is collected in 240 litre lime green lid wheelie bins on

a weekly cycle. This service is only available in the larger townships at present and is gradually

being extended to smaller townships as demand dictates. Currently the organics service is

available in Darfield, Kirwee, West Melton, Rolleston, Prebbleton, Springston, Lincoln, Leeston,

and Southbridge. This collection is an optional service for properties on the collection route

and is funded on a user-pays basis. Those who wish to use the service pay an annual charge

for their wheelie bin.

The rubbish collection takes general household rubbish on a weekly cycle. Households have

three choices for rubbish, namely 60 litre official Council rubbish bags, 80 litre and 240 litre

dark green or red lid wheelie bins. The Council has set waste collection fees and charges to

encourage waste minimisation and provide a financial incentive to households that reduce

their rubbish. Many households select the 240 litre organics bin and an 80 litre rubbish bin as a

lower cost alternative to one large 240 litre rubbish bin.

New RSA Service for Selwyn

With the support from Council, the RSA are happy to be able

to provide a new welfare service in Selwyn starting on

Wednesday 7 March.

The hope is that this service will provide more convenient access for

past and present servicemen and women and their families to get

help for any welfare related matter.

The clinic will provide a range of services including a link to

Veterans Affairs, completion of application forms and co-ordination

of financial needs. This service offered is not just for RSA members,

any serviceman or woman may visit.

The clinic, located at Council’s Rolleston Community House at

95 Rolleston Drive, will be open on Wednesdays 4–7pm.

To contact the clinic outside of hours please phone Josien at the

Templeton RSA Tuesday, Thursday or Friday between 9.15am–1.30pm

on 349 4701 or for urgent contact David Sands on 027 201 7747.

WAIKIRIKIRI HAS been

The club was formed in 2017.

Before then, 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.

Waikirikiri club president

A Canterbury hockey

spokesperson said having a

brand new club is exciting and

reflects the huge opportunity

from the new communities

developing in areas like

Selwyn.

“Waikirikiri entered teams

Oxford-Rangiora ensured their

place in country cricket’s top

flight competition next season after

a dominant win over Darfield-

South Malvern on Saturday.

The combined side’s eightwicket

win makes it five wins out

of eight for the year after a tough

start to the competition.

On a damp wicket at Oxford’s

No 2 ground, the home side won

the toss and elected to bowl first.

Darfield-South Malvern got

off to a flying start with Nick

Jenkins and Chris Warner taking

the team through to 57/0 after 12

Oxford-Rangiora clawed their

way back into the match with

off-spinner Mark Murphy picking

up 3/16 off his nine overs and

Nathan Cook 3/27 off eight overs

as Darfield-South Malvern crumbled

to be all out for 110.

The pressure was on Oxford-

Rangiora to chase down the runs

and keep them in the premier

grade next season.

They were soon reduced to

30/2, but Calvin Scott, battling

on with his nose still broken

from two weeks earlier, made

a gritty 30 not out while David

Fulton found his form later in

the innings and finished with an

unbeaten 48.

Fashion Quarterly

from Kim Taylor —Viva La Moda

Autumn is here

Autumn is upon us and the stores are bursting with

new exciting fashion for the season.

Navy is still huge as is pink in various hues, florals,

textures, chunky knits and ponchos. Red is

making a comeback which will please many.

Black, white and grey are also prevalent as

we follow Europe’s big return to these staple

colours.

The fashionistas amongst us know that

shopping early in the season is a must for

coats, jackets and knits. This is when there is

greatest choice in styles and sizes. As few

fashion suppliers carry extra stock any longer,

it’s often not possible to order in any more

once the stock in store has gone.

We have pictured a stunning navy coat with

fur collar which is from Joe Brown of London

$365. This is beautifully styled and the design

shows incredible attention to detail.

Vassalli is a fab NZ label and

they have really stepped it up

a notch this season with some

gorgeous fashion forward

pieces. We have pictured

the pretty Vassalli bomber

with rose gold zips. A

lovely jacket that could

be dressed up or down, for $175.

We have also showcased the beautiful butter soft seduce

genuine leather jackets in Navy wash $429. Genuine leather

is so much warmer and of course will last for years

without missing a beat.

The Libertine reversible dress has just arrived. This is a

winning style for Libertine which they repeat every

season but change it up with their prints and

colours. This season it is navy, teal and silver and

is a gorgeous flattering style, which can be worn

as a V neck or turned around to be round neck.

Clever!

The final style we have shown is the Zafina phase

shirt available in pink or navy $149. This stunning

shirt is a repeat winning style from Zafina as the

longer chiffon back appeals to most. it looks

great teamed up with slim leg pants

for work or play.

All of these styles are available

now at Viva La moda. see you

Colour day: A great success

ABOUT 850 people were covered

in brightly coloured cornflour as

part of a Colour Fun Day.

The Rolleston and Districts

Lions Club ran its first Rolleston

Colour Fun Day recently to raise

funds for its organisation.

Organiser and the Lion’s club

secretary Heather Kissell said the

day had perfect weather for the

event.

She said participants arrived

early to create group art work

and bought paint to throw on

each other.

After a zumba warm-up by

Kim Churton of Body Rhythm

Fitness, participants set off passing

through five colour stations

and three obstacles.

Participants made their way at

their own pace through a 2.5km

track at Helpet Park.

At the end of the course was

a colour pit, where participants

threw paint and water balloons

at each other and took part in a

colour throw which was counted

down.

The day was sponsored by

Rolleston New World, Storage

King Rolleston and Shake Shed

& Co.

Mrs Kissell said a significant

amount of money was raised for

the community and the wish was

expressed by many for it to happen

again.

“One person told me it was the

best fun they had had in their

life,” she said.

Mrs Kissell said the club has

yet to discuss next year but

agreed it was a successful event.

The Black Door Bar & Eatery has been

open for seven months now and is proving

to be the place to hang out in Lincoln.

Part of the reason for its popularity is

its changing menu and the fun events the

There are four new events now in the

pipeline so make sure you enter them in

your calendar.

First up is Southfield on Friday, 9th of

March.

“We danced till the early hours New

and it’s time to do it again! There is no cover

charge, it’s on us, but we do recommend

booking a table if you want to dine and

make a night of it,” says owner Anita Alder.

On Sunday, 18 March there is a Backyard

Session – featuring live music from

accomplished musician Lee

Martin. What better way

to spend a Sunday than

sipping on your favourite

drink while enjoying some

wonderful music.

Ryan Ferris is back again

on Sunday March 25 to play

another amazing Backyard

Session at Black Door. He is

a very talented musician so

don’t miss his performance.

The following week is

all about Easter. The Black

Door will be closed on

Good Friday but open again

themed celebrations for the

dISCOVER

New West Melton Community Centre

A new community centre is taking shape

in West Melton, and when completed

later this year will provide a wide range of

facilities for residents of the fast-growing

West Melton area and the surrounding

Selwyn District.

As chairman of the West Melton

Community and Recreation Centre

Working Group Bruce Russell explains,

the new building will replace the old

community hall, which has been servicing

the community since the early 1900s,

but would require significant and costly

earthquake strengthening in a few years’

time.

“The hall and the structures that had

been added on to it over the years were

damaged in the earthquake. Some money

was spent bringing it up to the required 37

per cent strength, but it would have needed

to be brought up to 100 per cent in 2025,

and that would have cost a significant

amount of money,” Bruce says.

He says the West Melton Hall has been

one of the most-used community centres

in the Selwyn District, and with the everincreasing

population in West Melton and

further afield, he could see that the time

was right for a new centre to be built.

“I talked to the community about it, and

they were in favour of the idea, and the

Artist Impression

council was also supportive. A committee

of 32 was formed and we spent the next

six to eight months canvassing the local

people about what they would like to have

included in their new community centre.”

The contract to build was awarded to

Armitage & Williams, with the Selwyn

District Council agreeing to contribute

10 per cent of the cost. However, as Bruce

pointed out to the council, residents from

surrounding areas would also be using

the new facilities, so funding should come

from the district-wide rates. Council

agreed and increased their contribution

to 36 per cent, which Bruce was thrilled

about.

“The council are right in behind us.”

The total cost of the project, including

landscaping, is $8.3 million.

Hamish Wheelans of Gillman Wheelans

says the facility was needed to cater for

will cater to growing population

growth in the developing subdivisions.

“It’s pleasing to see facilities keeping up

with the growth in West Melton – and

catering for future growth.”

Hamish has been a long-time supporter

of the community, including fundraising

for the primary school’s facilities and

other recreational amenities, and he

is also a supporter of the West Melton

Rugby Club.

The new West Melton Community

Centre will include a playcentre, a Scouts’

den, and meeting places for the Residents’

Association and other groups, while the

outdoor areas will incorporate sports

fields and proposed new tennis courts.

“We also purchased some extra land,

allowing us to potentially install a

children’s playground and skate park,”

Bruce says. “This is an active community,

so having facilities like these is very

important.”

The West Melton Primary School,

located across the other side of SH73

from the community centre, has limited

playground area and is also keen to make

use of the new centre, Bruce says.

“The school roll now stands at 450 and

will likely reach 500 by the end of the year.”

The issue of getting the children safely

across the busy road is being addressed

to some extent with a speed reduction

outside the school, but Bruce says they are

hoping traffic lights will be installed at the

major intersection.

“We are having discussions with Transit

NZ about this.”

Until the new centre is completed, the

old hall will remain in use, with people

using it every day and most nights of the

week, Bruce says.

Contaminated soil on the site, which

was a leftover from the 1920s-1940s when

there was a communal sheep dip there,

has been safely buried under Environment

Canterbury supervision.

The new West Melton Community

Centre will open towards the end of 2018,

providing a valuable facility for today’s

residents and generations to come.

Construction of the

new community

centre began at

the end of 2017

with completion

expected towards

the end of this year.

The West Melton Hall has been a well-used

community facility for more than a century.

Survey shows rural and urban

sectors share common concerns

A survey on New Zealanders’ views on

the primary sector shows the rural-urban

disconnect may not be as marked as some

commentators believe.

The broad survey, which was conducted

for the Ministry for Primary Industries

(MPI) last October, in the heat of election

campaigning and with ‘farmer bashing’

high on some politicians’ and lobby groups’

agendas, found a drop in positivity about

pastoral farming among both urban and

rural respondents.

“It’s hardly surprising given the political

climate at the time,” Federated Farmers

national president Katie Milne said.

“It appears we’re united in our

determination to do even more to continue

to strive for improvements in water

quality. Double the number of both city

and country folk see water quality as our

most significant issue when compared to a

similar survey done in 2008 – after all we

are all in this together.”

The primary sector, otherwise, was

still viewed as a significant contributor

to the wider economy with two thirds of

respondents believing the country is better

off when farmers are going well.

The report also notes that positive views

towards the dairy sector are still twice as

high as negative ones.

Federated Farmers, meanwhile, is

impressed that urban dwellers share

farmers’ concerns about such issues as

biosecurity incursions and the need for

more education and awareness around

prevention.

Farmers would also take heart in the

report’s findings towards their activities

and licence to operate.

“The report considers that the primary

sector currently earns its ‘social licence

to operate’ by providing employment

opportunities, economic stability and food

for New Zealanders,” Ms Milne said.

Positive views towards

dairy sector are twice

as high as negative

views, survey shows.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Help needed to stop the

spread of aggressive plant

Environment Canterbury is calling for

landowners to stop the spread of yellow

bristle grass, an aggressive annual seeding

plant which spreads rapidly through

pasture, reducing pasture quality.

Principal resource management advisor

biosecurity Laurence Smith said they

needed landowners to help stop the spread

in Canterbury.

“To stop yellow bristle grass becoming

a major pest in Canterbury, we are asking

landowners to please be vigilant and report

any suspected sightings to Environment

Canterbury as soon as possible.

“There are currently two known

infestations of yellow bristle grass in

Canterbury – one in Sefton and the

other in Scargill, both bordering railway

crossings. It is likely that seeds may have

been spread by contaminated machinery

working on the crossings,” Mr Smith said.

Yellow bristle grass is already widespread

throughout the North Island, where it

affects mainly dairy farmers by reducing

pasture quality and utilisation in late

summer and autumn. Cows don’t willingly

eat it, and grazing avoidance leads to

seeding and rapid spread and opening for

other weeds.

The fast spread of yellow bristle grass

across the North Island is largely due to

contaminated vehicles and machinery,

water, soil movements, and as contaminants

of hay and maize. Yellow bristle grass seeds

can pass through the rumen and be spread

in dung.

How to identify yellow bristle

grass

Yellow bristle grass is currently seeding

and therefore easier to identify. The seed

head is a cylindrical spike, between 2.5-

10cm long, and becomes a golden brown

colour once mature.

Leaves are yellow-green in colour and

usually red or purple at the base.

If you suspect you

have found yellow

bristle grass, please

contact Environment

Canterbury

immediately on

0800 324 636.

Sighted yellow bristle grass?

If you suspect you have found yellow

bristle grass, please contact Environment

Canterbury immediately on 0800 324 636.

You can prevent the spread of pests

like yellow bristle grass by having a farm

biosecurity plan in place on your property.

Yellow bristle grass is included in

Canterbury’s proposed Regional Pest

Management Plan as an ‘eradication’

pest, with the objective of eradicating all

infestations from the region over the life of

the plan.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

Answer:

Autumn is a great time to plant bulbs like

daffodils, tulips and freesias. A beautiful burst

of Spring colour after the long days of winter

is welcomed in any garden, and definitely

brightens everyone’s spirits a little. The end

of daylight saving is a great time to plant

your bulbs because the ground temperature

is generally cooler, which is the ideal

environment for bulbs. The key to success

is ensuring you have prepared the soil, or

have chosen a top quality potting mix like our

Patio Plus if you are planting in pots. Bulbs

also like blood and bone if they need a nutrient

boost. This can be added to the soil. Need more

help with how to plant bulbs? We have a guide on

our website or ask our team for advice.

Artisan Homes

Our work is delivered in three equal parts - Long-term

experience, skilled expertise, and old fashioned hard work.

566 East Maddisons Road is the latest addition to

the line-up of stunning homes in the catalogue of

Artisan Homes. The three bedroom, 227m2 home

forms part of Faringdon’s show home village, the

South Island’s biggest, with still more homes to open.

It features two spacious living areas, open plan

kitchen and dining, walk-in pantry, and ensuite

and bathroom, each fully tiled and with 10mm

Frameless Glass showers. New Zealand designed

and manufactured VCBC vanities feature in both

bathrooms, as does the VCBC Form Clearstone

Freestanding Bath in the family bathroom. There is

a reading/sitting area, lit by two skylights, that opens

onto the large deck.

Stylishly

finished with

Methven tapware

Haro Quality

and Cavalier

Bremworth

Habitat Collection

carpet, in this

beautiful family

home no detail is

overlooked.

Such is the

hallmark of the

artisans that make

up the team at

Artisan Homes. Rob Jones is the owner. He’s been in

the building industry since he was sixteen, whether

building, project management, or both.

“Our work is delivered in three equal parts,” Rob

says. “Long-term experience, skilled expertise,

and old fashioned hard work.” Backed by a ten

year Standard Masterbuild Guarantee, all these are

wonderfully exhibited in Artisan’s newest show home.

“The build result, as with all our show homes, has

ended up as a collaboration of ideas from across our

team of designers, suppliers, and contractors, many

of whom had a part in the process with ideas and

contributions.” This is perhaps most keenly observed

in the unique landscaping with its functional and

aesthetic use of railway sleepers throughout

the property.

“There wasn’t a design or plan for it,”

Rob says. “Graham, our landscape

contractor creates his work by what

I call ‘free flowing’ his ideas as he

works on site, almost by feel, and

he changes or introduces new

elements as he goes. He told me

early on he was working a bench

seat into his scheme. I trust him one

hundred percent, so I just agreed.”

The result is quite beautiful, and needs

to be seen – and sat on – to be truly appreciated. Sit

on it and listen to the water feature bubbling away

in the quiet, relaxing outdoor space. It’s at 566 East

Maddisons Road. Show home hours are weekends 12

til 4, and most weekday afternoons.

Checklist for selling your home

MAKE SMALL FIXES

Inspect your home with a buyer’s

eyes, and correct the flaws that are

most egregious (if affordable) or

can be relatively easily fixed—from

repairing cracks in the walkways

to repainting dingy walls or oiling

creaky hinges.

SET A PRICE

A real estate agent will give you a

market analysis free of charge or

commitment. Ask a few to get a

broader picture of the market, then

ask to see listings for properties

similar to yours that have sold

in the past six months. Check

out comparable listings yourself

in the real estate section of your

newspaper or on websites. Then

decide whether you want a quick,

easy sale or the highest possible

price.

CLEAN & DECLUTTER

Weed out excess furniture,

knicknacks, and “stuff ”—toss it,

donate it, give it away, sell it at a

yard sale, or put it into storage—so

the house seems more spacious and

buyers can imagine themselves in it.

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT

MAINTENANCE

From the moment you start

showing your house, keep the lawn

mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens

weeded, rooms spotless and

clutter-free.

READY YOUR HOME FOR

OPEN DAYS

Hide pocketable valuables,

display fresh flowers or bowls

of fruit, bake a batch of cookies

for the homey smell, open the

drapes, keep pets out of sight.

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO

YOUR OWN BUILDING

INSPECTION

It may save you time, especially

with older homes, to identify—

and potentially solve—problems

your buyer’s inspection will

discover later.
