Animals to benefit from students’ book

Darfield High School students Elyse Kerr (left) and Bridget Leach have teamed with the SPCA to create

an all-in-one colouring-in and storybook. As part of the Young Enterprise Scheme competition, the

students created the book for children aged five to 13, to teach them how to care for animals properly.

The books will be sold nationwide, with a percentage of profits going to the SPCA.

call for stop

sign at busy

Waddington

intersection

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PLEAS HAVE been made to

have a stop sign installed at an

accident-prone Waddington

intersection.

Residents have asked for the

sign to be installed at the

intersection of State Highway 73

and Waimakariri Gorge Rd to

prevent future crashes.

Already two serious crashes have

been recorded at the intersection

this year, one a fatal.

Fox Glacier man Ioane Sitivi, 36,

died from injuries he sustained when

two vehicles crashed in January.

He was one of eight people hurt

in the crash. He and another person

were critically injured, while

two others were moderately injured

and four had minor injuries.

In February, a sport utility vehicle

failed to give way and was hit

by a truck. One person sustained

serious injuries while the other had

minor injuries.

Three other crashes that resulted

in both serious and minor injuries

were recorded at the intersection

between 2014-2016.

The issue was presented by

resident Bob Scott to the Sheffield-

Waddington Community Committee

in February.

SPORT CANTERBURY put on a great

night a couple of Fridays ago to honour

the province’s top sports men and women

– from youth to the elite seniors like Tom

Walsh and Sophie Pascoe.

A highlight was the induction of Pat

Barwick as a Sporting Legend. Leaguie Frank Endacott was also

inducted.

We profile Pat on pages 14/15.

Pat of course is a New Zealand hockey icon, a tremendous

player, coach, and administrator.

She’s one of these people who, when she talks, people listen. She

has a way of getting the message across. Sincere, unflappable and

every word seems to count and mean something.

On another sporting note, the Golden Oldies festival is under

way (see pages 8, 9, 10). Go the Lincoln Lizards!

Safety ‘ignored’ at Prebbleton crossing

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FLASHING LIGHTS will not be

installed at a pedestrian crossing

in Prebbleton to mitigate safety

concerns for children crossing a

busy road in peak traffic.

The district

council says

placing flashing

lights at

the Springs

Rd pedestrian

crossing is an

“outdated”

Malcolm

Lyall

method of

highlighting

children are

crossing the road.

It comes after the Prebbleton

Community Association Committee

wrote to the district

council asking if traffic lights

could be programmed to flash

between 8.30am to 9am and

3pm to 3.30pm.

It has also asked for 40km/h

school zone signs to be placed

around the school.

The district council’s transportation

asset manager Andrew

Mazey said while flashing lights

is outdated, new overhead lighting

illuminating the crossing at

night and in poor conditions has

been installed.

He said the district council

has a road safety co-ordinator

BUSY: The Springs Rd pedestrian crossing in Prebbleton will

not be getting flashing safety lights.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

to investigate and address any

safety issues – but it has not been

advised of any new issues with

the use of Springs Rd crossing.

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall

said he didn’t care if flashing

lights were outdated, as long as

it works.

“Right at this moment, people

are being ignored . . . it appears

to be effective elsewhere and I

think the community will be

quite disappointed with that

stance,” he said.

Mr Lyall said between 10 to 20

cars can drive past the crossing

until one pulls over to stop.

Prebbleton School deputy

principal John Russell said it is

always concerned for the safety

of its pupils and would like

nothing more than for drivers to

drive with care and look out for

pedestrians.

The school encourages its

pupils to use the kea crossing on

Blakes Rd, which is monitored

by a road patrol of parent volunteers

and staff.

But Mr Lyall said pupils use

the Springs Rd pedestrian crossing

and having parents assist in

hazard vests would heighten the

awareness of drivers.

It is estimated about 16,000

vehicles travel on Springs Rd,

between Marshs and Hodgens

Rd daily.

Other road safety issues include

children navigating across

the busy Springs Rd roundabout

during peak traffic, cars not

stopping at stop signs and vehicles

speeding past school buses.

The association’s chairman

Peter Hunter said the association

has been very concerned with recent

accidents and the increasing

volume of traffic.

Between March 2017 and this

year, 26 crashes were recorded

in Prebbleton including two that

were fatal.

Twenty four million dollars

has been set aside in the draft

Long Term Plan 2018-2028

for upgrading intersections in

Prebbleton.

“I am keen to see the people

of the Prebbleton area to make

submissions in support of that

funding … it has been a long

time since we had any serious

money spent on our roading

infrastructure,” Mr Lyall said.

Arthur’s Pass

victim to be

buried at sea

THE FUNERAL for the woman

who fell 100m to her death while

canyoning in Arthur’s Pass

National Park will be held in

Germany this week.

The death notice

for Verena Jantje

Kühl (right),

known as Jantje,

her funeral would be held on

Friday in Glückstadt.

It said there would be a burial

the notice said to make a gift to

the Westpac Rescue Helicopter

to the incident. The 39-year-old

and her husband were canyoning

at Twin Peaks Falls on March 18

when she fell at about 4pm.

Her husband abseiled to where

she lay, activated an emergency

beacon and yelled for help.

When the Westpac Rescue

Helicopter arrived, Ms Kühl had

already died. She had been living

in Bundaberg, Australia, working

as a paramedic for the Wide Bay

DISTRICT COUNCIL chief

executive David Ward has

spoken to his Environment

Canterbury counterpart after

the Malvern Community Board

was not considered an interested

party in Fonterra’s latest water

consent application.

It comes after

ECan approved

in February

for Fonterra

to take and

use groundwater

from

Homebush Rd,

Darfield.

As a result,

Mr Ward has

met with ECan’s chief executive

Bill Bayfield.

An ECan’s spokeswoman said

its compliance team and the

Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee

will continue to monitor the

consent.

“ECan has not previously

been informed by the

Malvern Community Board

of their interest in being

advised of any resource consent

applications,” the spokeswoman

said.

ECan keeps a register of parties

who wishes to be advised

of certain types of resource

consent applications lodged.

It comes after concerns if

Fonterra took any more water

than authorised, it could impact

the Darfield water supply.

But acting Darfield site operations

manager Shane Taylor said

there are “absolutely no plans”

to draw more water than what

is used.

He said Fonterra recently

drilled the water bore as a contingency

for its Darfield site and

all regulatory processes have

been followed.

“The bore will provide increased

flexibility in managing

local water levels by allowing

concerned.

“There is really no more water

to take,” Mr Pauling said.

But his views are at odds with

the board’s chairwoman Jenny

Gallagher.

She was not concerned because

she does not believe more water

will be taken.

“They cannot afford to take

more water than they are allowed

to because of the business

they are in. I believe they will do

things correctly as they should

do,” she said.

The board will make a submission

Mr Taylor said Fonterra takes

water conservation very seriously

and have plans under way

reduce water use over time.

Horses to be banned

from Doyleston reserve

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A “NO horses sign” will

be put up in Doyleston’s

Osborne Park to re-enforce

horses are banned from

using the reserve.

A combination of owners

not cleaning up after their

horses and the safety of the

horses sharing the park

with the Ellesmere Archery

Club has raised concerns.

The issues were discussed

at the Doyleston

Community Committee

meeting recently.

The committee’s member

and former chairman Jack

Pearcy said owners are

not cleaning up after their

horses when they defecate

in Osborne Park.

The problem extends to

the footpaths around the

township.

Mr Pearcy said it has

never been an issue before,

but owners are ignoring

the committee’s requests.

He said most recently

the owners were asked to

refrain from taking the

horses through the park

during the weekend of the

South Island Youth Championships

for archery held

at Osborne Park.

“They were still taking

them there which was a

concern,” Mr Pearcy said.

The current Parks and

•From page 1

Mr Scott said the current

give way sign is difficult for

people to see when they pull

up to the intersection and the

corner is busy with signage.

“Our argument is if there

is a compulsory stop there

and at a height where they

can see it out of a car window

we are sure that would

perhaps reduce some of the

near misses we have had,”

he said.

A meeting has since been

held between residents and

district councillors Bob

Mugford and Nicole Reid.

Cr Reid told Selwyn

Times she raised the issue

with the New Zealand

Transport Agency at the

district council’s road

safety sub-committee

meeting last week.

NZTA senior traffic and

safety engineer David Scarlet

said a stop sign is normally

used when there is

limited visibility and in this

case there is good visibility

for both intersections.

“In rural environments,

in particular, with low

traffic volumes, people will

not automatically stop just

Jack Pearcy

Reserves Bylaw prohibits

horses from being ridden

on reserves unless the reserve

has been specifically

identified for that purpose.

A district council

spokesman said the committee

is entitled to install

the sign to remind people

not to take horses onto the

reserve, especially if they

are experiencing problems

with this behaviour.

Mr Pearcy said he was

also uneasy about the

safety of children riding

because there is a stop sign

in place,” he said.

He said it will be talking

to police about factors in

the recent crash to see if

there are helpful interventions

or changes that could

be made to make it safer.

Nearby resident Casey

de Bruin said he felt it was

driver inattention more

than a signage issue.

But he said he couldn’t

see why a stop sign wasn’t

installed at the intersection

when it was redesigned

about 10-12 years ago.

Senior Constable Andy

Grant would not be drawn

on whether he thought the

stop sign needed to be put

in or if the intersection had

safety issues.

But district councillor

Murray Lemon said horses

on the road is common in

the country.

“Obviously they have got

to comply with road safety

like a motor vehicle,” Cr

Lemon said.

He said the biggest

concern was horse riders

being put at risk while the

archery club is in use.

But he said the archery

club obviously has good

health and safety plans

around how they run their

operation but it was about

making sure people are

the motto fun, friendship and

fraternity.

Organised

by sport event

management,

tour and travel

company,

Vintage Sport

and Leisure,

the celebration

was designed

especially for

Christchurch

after the

September

4, 2010, and February 22,

2011, earthquakes to help the

city regenerate. The different

tournaments include rugby,

cricket, netball, hockey, softball,

lawn bowls, golf, squash, football

and basketball. Each will run at

different times throughout the

month. South Hagley Park will

be the event hub, with rugby,

cricket, football and netball

played there, while other codes

will be played in venues across

the city.

The opening ceremonies for

the first three sports – cricket,

netball and

basketball – took

place on Sunday,

and the action

kicked off on

Monday.

Who will be

here?

More than

6000 participants,

supporters and

volunteers will

come to Christchurch for

the month-long event from

across New Zealand and

Australia, and from as far

as Japan, Russia, Zimbabwe,

Argentina, the United States,

the United Kingdom, Ireland

and Canada. While Golden

Oldies is open to anyone over

35, the bulk of participants are

normally between 45-65. For

some, Golden Oldies won’t be

their first taste of international

competition.

Former Wallaby and current

Wallaby attack coach Stephen

Larkham will be on hand to play

for any team that asks, South

African cricket legends Barry

Richards and Mike Procter will

play in the golf tournament,

while former Canterbury rugby

hard man Alex ‘Grizz’ Wyllie

will turn his hand to lawn

bowls, alongside two-time world

champion and ambassador Gary

Lawson.

Former Crusaders coach

Robbie Deans will dust of his

pads and play for The Willows

cricket team next month and

SWAPPING CODES:

Former South African

cricketer Barry

Richards will compete

in the golf, as well

as being a cricket

ambassador.

former All Whites defender Ben

Sigmund will play in the football

tournament.

And New Zealand cricket great

John Wright will even make

an appearance, but not with a

cricket bat. He will perform at

the rugby and cricket dinners

with band The Sou’Westers.

But the big names don’t

intimidate the other competitors.

As team names such as the

Saracens Saggy Sacks, Lincoln

Lizards, The Gentlemen of

Nowra Eleven, Karaka Stallions,

The Tequila Shots and the Shore

Ravers suggest, they like to have

a laugh.

Many of the competitors met

each other at Golden Oldies

tournaments 20 years ago, and

look forward to catching up

again.

Saracens Saggy Sacks captain

Steve Murray reckons it’s about

scoring a few tries and sharing

a pint or two afterwards. “Most

of the players have done our

dash with competitive sports in

our younger years and now it’s

time to focus on the fun and the

friendships you form along the

way.”

Other ambassadors on the

sidelines will include Sir Graham

FUN: North Canterbury’s Saracens Saggy Sacks are looking

forward to taking part in the Golden Oldies rugby tournament.

(Right) – Canadian couple Sandy and Tony Bateman are

volunteering and playing cricket this week in Christchurch.

Henry, Sir Bob Charles, Rod

Latham, Julie Seymour, Alan

Stroud, Todd Blackadder, among

others.

What will the event bring to

the city?

It’s not all about the sport.

History suggests Golden Oldies

like to have a good time out of

the sporting arena – and they’re

big spenders. Many like to go to

bars and eateries, go shopping

and sightseeing, and they will

need accommodation. It is

expected to bring $33 million

of direct economic benefit to

Canterbury.

ChristchurchNZ attraction

general manager Linda Falwasser

said anytime thousands of

international visitors come and

stay a minimum of seven nights,

it contributes significantly to the

local and regional economy.

“Christchurch is open and

ready to welcome visitors and

I’m sure the local business

community will agree that we

have so many amazing sights,

services and experiences to share

with our visitors.”

The event is expected to be one

of the largest Christchurch has

ever hosted.

Where did the Golden Oldies

originate?

The Golden Oldies movement

began in 1979 with rugby. It

was set up to keep older people

playing sport and enjoying the

social aspect of it.

From there, more codes were

added, but rugby remains the

most popular with more than

120 teams registered for next

month’s event.

Normally, Golden Oldies’

tournaments for each sport are

held in different international

cities every two years – so

Christchurch is the first, and

possibly last city to hold all 10

sports in the same month.

Golden Oldies

Celebration of sport under way

•From page 9

Each sport has different grades

and rules, depending on the

participants. While most of them

are social, some codes do have

competitive grades with trophies

up for grabs. Age is no barrier –

the oldest rugby player to take

part was 87.

CAMARADERIE:

Wellington’s Sue

Critchlow and her

team the Shore Ravers

are competing in the

Golden Oldies netball

tournament.

Who is organising it?

Vintage Sport and Leisure

is the driving force behind

the event, supported by

ChristchurchNZ.

VSL managing director Peter

McDermott said it could not

wait for the event to start. He

said the majority of people were

registered for the rugby, cricket,

netball and hockey, with lawn

bowls and golf having good

numbers too.

“We’re very pleased with

the numbers we’ve got. We’re

really pleased people coming to

Christchurch are very excited.”

Christchurch Casino is the

event’s naming sponsor. Chief

executive Brett Anderson said it

would also host various events

at the casino and at Sixty6 on

Peterborough, which would be

renamed the Club Rooms for the

month.

Mr Anderson said the casino

wanted to support the event

because of its significance for

Christchurch and the sector

in what was usually a quiet

month.

“I was fortunate enough to

attend a Golden Oldies Rugby

Festival in Cardiff and see the

impact that event had on the city,

every day and night of the week

was a busy night for city, you

saw the participants in the bars,

the shops, the museums and

galleries, walking the streets and

taking in all that the city had to

offer.”

Arthur’s Pass historian soon

to finish book on Addington

John Wilson

AN ARTHUR’S Pass historian

will finally have his book published

after a delay.

John Wilson’s book, titled Local

Lives: A History of Addington was

due to be released on November,

but was postponed until June, due

to funding issues.

It is being

produced by

the Addington

Neighbourhood

Association and

Mr Wilson.

He has spent

more than 20

years interviewing

locals, pouring

over records

and collating a

huge amount information to put

the 368-page book together.

“I have talked to a lot of people,

but have missed a lot as well. If I

was to interview everyone on the

list, I would have been dead for 20

years,” he said.

Mr Wilson, who now resides in

Arthur’s Pass, was working for the

city council heritage team in the

1990s when he was approached

by the association to write a book

about the suburb.

LOOKING BACK: Local Lives: A History of Addington will feature

more than 150 photos and illustrations including this one with the

concrete water tower which was built in 1883.

The book begins with Addington’s

birth as a working-class

suburb in the 1860s and travels

through the years up until the

Christchurch earthquakes.

Mr Wilson, who has a PhD in

history from Harvard University,

said it was great the book was

being designed and printed in

Christchurch.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Students’ project

to benefit animals

AN ALL-IN-ONE colouringin

and storybook will be

created by Darfield High

School students to teach

young children how to

properly care for animals.

Students Elyse Kerr and

Bridget Leach have teamed

up with the SPCA as part

of a nationwide high school

competition.

The 17-year-olds are taking

part in the Young Enterprise

Scheme – a competition

aimed to teach students

about the risks and rewards

of going into business.

They were inspired to take

on the project as part of

their NCEA level 3 business

studies class after both of

their pet cats were rescued as

strays.

“We used them as inspiration

because we feel so

fortunate that we have them

now. We love them to bits,”

Elyse said.

She said she and Bridget

are “huge animal-lovers” and

wanted to do something to

better educate people.

The books will feature stories

and pictures of animals

rescued from the SPCA for

children.

Elyse said her favourite

story in the book about a kitten

called Little Sausage who

didn’t have a mother and was

raised by another cat.

It is planned the books will

be sold at SPCA locations

around the country.

They are likely to cost between

$10-$15 and a percentage

of the profits from the

books sold to go to the SPCA.

It is designed for primary

school pupils aged between

five and 13 years-old.

The students are currently

collating data from a recent

survey they sent out.

It asked a range of questions

including what type

of book residents would

purchase and how much they

would be willing to pay.

Elyse said it was interesting

to find many people would

like an adult version of the

book.

But she said adult colouring-in

books are in trend at

the moment.

Elyse said the books will

likely be ready at the end of

term 2.

Soil debate draws crowd

Lincoln

Envirotown

trustee

Sue Jarvis

writes about

a debate

at Lincoln

University

hosted by radio personality

Kim Hill and a selection of

expert panellists on the

importance of soil

DEBATE: Farmer and company director Andy MacFarlane

discussing the importance of soil in a debate at Lincoln

University last week.

AT THE Kim Hill hot topic

on Thursday night at Lincoln

University, co-ordinated by

the Lincoln Envirotown Trust,

a large audience of nearly 300

people heard an interesting panel

discussion about the topic of soil,

with some friendly disagreement

and banter especially, between

Ants Robert and Andy

MacFarlane.

Hill was on form as usual,

showing her wide knowledge and

quick wit.

The consensus of the panellists

was that New Zealand is learning

from its mistakes and its soils are

improving.

We are in a much better position

than many other countries.

There was a chance for audience

participation in the second

half of the evening with people

wanting to know what else they

could do to put consumer pressure

on producers to do the right

thing, as well as some disagreeing

with the panellists.

The panellists commented

that the price of food was too

low which reduced the ability of

farmers to make improvements.

One of the issues is how much

the consumers value how the

food is produced – and we need

a system to trace our food to its

source.

However, Andy gave an

example from the United

Kingdom where Waitrose

supermarkets had introduced

traceability for their food

guaranteeing that it was

produced sustainably.

However, this cost the

consumer a bit more and in spite

of consumers saying that they

wanted it, Waitrose lost market

share to other supermarkets.

Hospital parking a ‘regional’ problem

• By Bridget Rutherford

NEW Government MPs are

working to resolve Christchurch

Hospital’s parking situation

by the start of winter as the

situation reaches “crunch

point.”

The Deans Ave park and ride

set-up has been described as a

regional problem and will be the

focus of a meeting between Labour

MPs, Canterbury District

Health Board and city council

representatives this week.

They have been tasked with

coming up with options to

resolve the issues, including the

lack of shelter for those waiting

in bad weather to catch the

shuttle and the site’s general

condition.

Those options will be tabled

this week with the aim of finding

a solution before winter.

Port Hills Labour MP Ruth

Dyson said she requested a

meeting with Christchurch

Central MP Duncan Webb,

Christchurch East MP Poto

Williams, Minister of Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Megan Woods, city councillor

Deon Swiggs and CDHB representatives.

“I put out a message and said

can we sort this together and

I’ve had really positive responses

back.”

She said everyone was looking

at options for what was a

citywide and regional problem,

and they would be tabled at the

meeting.

“It’s got the attention of people

who are pretty determined to get

these things sorted.”

Selwyn Times has visited the car

park several times, to find dozens

of people queued in the pouring

rain and wind to catch the shuttle

because there was not enough

space in the small waiting room.

Others did not want to lose their

spot in the line.

They included a child with

pneumonia, elderly people, people

on crutches, and a heavily pregnant

woman.

Park and ride was set up as

a temporary fix to alleviate the

chronic parking shortage until a

permanent car parking building

was finished in 2020.

But Cr Swiggs said the current

Deans Ave car park was “not good

enough” and it had come to a

“crunch point.”

“I think a good solution will be

to get that car park to a standard

that’s accessible and to make

good accommodation there for

people when it’s raining so they

can have shelter.”

Other options, such as investigating

if there were other car

parking locations that could be

utilised may come with it, he

said.

The car park is owned by

Global Edge Properties and the

CDHB operates the free shuttles.

The CDHB previously said

COLD:

Authorities

are working

together to

try and avoid

situations like

this, where

a dozen

people had

shuttle as excyclone

MARTIN

HUNTER

there was no funding

to install extra shelter, and

had asked Global Edge Properties

to fix the uneven surface.

CDHB finance and corporate

services manager Justine White

said the CDHB welcomed the

input from MPs.

She said improvements could

be made to the Deans Ave site,

which they would push for, but

the site was still well used.

“The Canterbury health dollar

is stretched by competing priorities

more than ever before, so of

course additional funding would

be helpful.”

Cr Swiggs would not rule out

putting ratepayer money into

finding a solution if it was the

difference between fixing the

problem or not.

Pat Barwick

Hockey great becomes a Canterbury

Hockey icon Pat Barwick

was inducted into the

Sporting Legends

of Canterbury at the

Canterbury Sports

Awards on March 9.

She talks to reporter

Sarla Donovan about

missing out on Moscow,

developments in

women’s sport, and

impending retirement

It must have been a proud

moment to be named a

Sporting Legend?

Yes, it was humbling and a

lovely surprise. And fabulous

that they had some of my family

down. I didn’t know anything

about it until I walked into

the room on Friday night and

saw my family. Then I knew

something was happening. My

older sister and her hubby came

down from Auckland and my

younger sister from the family

farm in the north of Wanganui.

They stayed for the weekend

so we had a nice long

celebration.

When did you first pick up a

hockey stick?

Not until I was just turning

14. I was in a country school

where we only played rugby

and netball. We had to do both

because we didn’t have enough

boys so we played everything.

There were only 32 at the school

when I was there, that was at

Brunswick School in Wanganui.

So I didn’t really even know

what hockey was. I got involved

with it at high school and it

wasn’t until my second year at

Whanganui Girls’ College that I

was allowed to give up netball.

I could have stopped half-way

through the year but my mum

– quite rightly so – made me

support my team until I finished

the season. The next year I was

allowed to play hockey and I

loved it and within a couple of

years I was doing reasonably

well and continued on.

What are some of the

CAUSAL GARDENER: Pat Barwick, Sporting Legend of Canterbury, enjoys being in the garden.

proudest moments in your

career?

Playing-wise getting into the

national side and captaining it

for most of my playing career.

I remember the match where

we beat England at Wembley

Stadium in 1977 in front of

63,000 people. That was a bit of

a mindblower. Being selected

for the 1980 Moscow Olympics

– though, unfortunately, we

didn’t go in the end. From a

coaching perspective, I had a

pretty successful time taking the

Canterbury women to a number

of titles and then going on to

coach the national team. That

was a real honour and I really

enjoyed the opportunity that I

was given.

What was it like finding

out you wouldn’t be going to

Moscow?

Well it was three weeks before

we were due to leave so it was

pretty gut-wrenching. We had

all the uniforms, all the plans,

everything was ready to go

and then suddenly we weren’t

going anywhere. It was a pretty

sad time for most athletes and

people were pretty upset. I

didn’t remain bitter about it in

later years though some did. I

had the chance to go back as

a coach in Barcelona in 1992

so at least I got to an Olympic

Games but it is different going

as a support person rather than

an athlete – you’re never quite

an Olympian unless you’re an

athlete there.

Hockey looks like quite a

fierce game – what qualities do

you need?

In the past it was a game that

could be played by anyone, any

height, any mobility. But nowadays

on the turf it’s become very

quick so speed is an important

factor. But it’s not the only

thing; you have to have a desire

to learn the skills pretty thoroughly

to be successful because

it is quite a technical game. It’s

demanding when you’re learning

but once you get into it I think

it is a great game in that anyone

can score a goal, anyone can be

not too much quiet time so

you’re always involved and that

you’re not playing/coaching

sport?

always played a bit of croquet.

‘casual garden’ as I call it so

there’s always plenty to do there.

Other than that I’ve always

enjoyed supporting Forest and

Bird and am looking to help

somewhere on a project with

them, now that I have a bit of

time.

Sporting-wise, Canterbury

seems to bat above its weight.

What do you put that down to?

There’s still a lot of awareness

and interest in sport here –

the red and black culture is

still strong. We’re not a huge,

million-plus city so we still have

a community feel and I think

when you have that there’s a lot

more cross-code interaction and

support for each others’ sport as

well as the people involved.

I think that sheer interest in

each other is still very strong

here.

Fire rages, homes at risk

sporting legend

I hear the Black Ferns are

getting professional contracts.

Do you feel we’re at a bit of

a turning point in women’s

sport?

Definitely, we always knew it

was about to happen. Women

are the area of sport that are

now making a huge leap in their

performances. The change in

their ability to play more fulltime,

to show that they can

advance their own sport a lot

further than previously. Giving

them (financial) support is

important as it enables them to

play at a higher level for longer.

In doing that it means you

get really good performances

because they’re becoming more

experienced, they’re becoming

more capable, they’re fitter,

faster, and can develop those

characteristics that you need.

You’re seeing a really great move

right now in the development

of the whole women’s sports

field right across the spectrum

and we’ll continue to do that for

another eight or 10 years until

we get to the top of it.

So how much longer before

there’s an equal playing field?

Equal playing field only ever

means money and in the end

it’s about money through the

gate. Until women are able to

attract the same crowds to their

games as the men it’s difficult

to look at the balance of funds

and I understand that. But it

still means for the next eight

to 10 years women need to be

given support to achieve that.

And unless that happens they

probably won’t ever achieve

it. I think the nature of the

games have become really

well-developed in the sense

that the skill level, the physical

capabilities and the athleticism

of women now is certainly

making it more attractive to a

wider public to watch. So maybe

we’ll increase the gates and

they’ll increase the balance of

pay. That’s how it works. But to

me it’s more about how women

can be successful – that’s the

exciting part. The other part, the

professionalism is another whole

LEGEND: Pat Barwick captained the New Zealand hockey

team for nine years from 1971-79. During her tenure, the

team controversially finished third at the 1975 World Cup in

Edinburgh against England as reported in The Press. Two years

later, she captained New Zealand to victory over England at

Wembley Stadium before 63,000 spectators.

cog in the wheel.

You captained NZ in your

first ever match, how did that

happen and what was it like?

It was pretty interesting. I had

captained one team – the NZ

Universities side for a couple

of matches against Australia

a few years before. But other

than that I’d never been a club

team captain or a Canterbury

or Hawkes Bay captain. So it

was a bit of a mind-blower. I

think a lot of it was to do with

the fact I was the centre half

and when you play in the centre

of the paddock you’re fairly

well connected with everybody

across the pitch. At the time

there were still players in the

team that had been away on

previous internationals so I

was quite surprised because

they were more experienced

and good people. I think it was

a positional issue but maybe I

showed a bit more leadership

quality then than I realised.

When did you go from

playing to coaching?

I retired from the national

team in 1980 – that was the year

we didn’t go to the Olympics

and I pretty much retired

straight away. I was still playing

for the Canterbury team and

they asked me to be a player

coach which was unusual at that

level but I did it with the help

of a manager-coach. So I got

into that level pretty quickly. I

had about six good years with

Canterbury hockey and then I

was able to put my name in the

hat for the national side.

Do you see us being world

champions any time soon?

We’ve been in the top four

in the last two Olympic Games

and that’s massive. They’re

a top team and they’ve been

performing extremely well over

the last few years. Getting in the

top four in the world in hockey

is up there and to do it twice

in a row that’s been quite an

achievement.

Do you think the funding for

NZ Hockey is adequate?

I think we’re pretty well

supported by high performance

funding and other agencies.

We have a good foundation

that supports the players and

the teams when they have

to centralise in Auckland.

Our people are centralised in

Auckland, and they train as

much as they can – probably

not quite as much as a fully paid

athlete but they’re still getting

a lot of training. I think we’re

doing about as well as we can

expect at the moment. Certainly

funding is pretty generous on

New Zealand terms, we don’t

have all the money in the world,

we’re a small country and can’t

support everything.

I hear you’re retiring from

your coaching adviser role at

Sport Canterbury?

I’m having my farewell this

afternoon actually, I’m finishing

up today. I’ve had twelve and a

half years here so it’s been one

of my longer terms of work

through my life. It’s a really

enjoyable environment; lots

of passionate people doing

things to help other passionate

people. It’s a great environment

of positivity to walk into every

morning so it makes work easy.

I’ll miss the people. I’m a people

person and enjoy watching them

grow and develop and learn. It’s

the teacher in me as well as the

coach. So personally I will miss

those regular contacts but I’ll be

out doing things.

So what’s the plan this

afternoon?

We’re wrapping up the week

with a bit of a party after work

and I’m going to have a bit of

fun for a few hours so that will

be really nice, a nice casual

send-off.

DAMAGING: Tasmanian grass grub beetles are often attracted to lights. ​

Light-loving grass grub a pest

Mike

Bowie is an

invertebrates). Each

His column aims to raise

public awareness of

AT DUSK, on still, warm

nights between January and

mid-March, Tasmanian grass

grub beetles are often attracted

to lights.

Scientifically known as Aphodius

tasmaniae, it is a major

pest of southeast Australia and

in Canterbury and Hawkes Bay

where soils are drier, lighter and

alluvial.

First discovered in Canterbury

in 1920, the dark brown to blackcoloured,

oblong-shaped adults

are 10mm long.

Females lay pale yellow,

spherical 1-2mm diameter

eggs in clusters of 10-60 into

earthen cells.

Larvae emerge and grow to

20mm, having a shiny appearance

with blue-grey coloured

abdomens.

The larvae also have dark

brown head capsules and two

small plates behind the head

that distinguish it from larvae

of the New Zealand grass grub

Costelytra zealandica.

Larvae live in vertical tunnels

in soil and feed primarily on

animal and plant debris, but also

on grass, lucerne and clover.

Damage by both species

causes patches of dead grass and

bare soil.

I would like to say so many

drivers just are not good at giving

way at roundabouts. Some

drivers stop, then look to see if

they need to give way. This is not

Eye injury ends Pietzner’s season

A freak accident has prevented long-time Lincoln half-back

Jason Pietzner from bringing up 300 games for the club. Gordon

Findlater finds out how he’s dealing with being a spectator, and if he

will ever play the game he loves again

JASON PIETZNER, 37, suffered

a season ending eye injury

during a preseason match

against Kaiapoi at the end of

February.

He took a fend to the face

which resulted in the retina

peeling from his eye.

It wasn’t until two weeks after

the incident that the half-back

noticed a slow loss of vision and

got the eye inspected further.

The extent of the injury has

seen him have two surgeries,

with a recommendation from

his surgeon not to play rugby

this season.

Pietzner was due to become

Lincoln’s first 300-game player at

division one level and plans for a

celebration were being arranged

for their match against Burnham

Dunsandel Irwell on April 14.

“The eyes are a relatively important

part of the body. When

I was told loss of vision was the

worst case scenario, it kind of

makes you think where your

priorities lie,” said Pietzner.

“It’s pretty gutting not to do it

but I still enjoy playing the game

so it’s not like that getting to the

milestone was the only reason

for playing.”

The 17-season veteran has

taken the incident on the chin

and is remaining positive about

being able to spend more time

with his family over winter.

It’s somewhat of a surprise

Pietzner was even preparing for

another season of rugby.

He had originally retired from

the game at the end of the 2014

season.

However, with a number of

long-time players leaving the division

one team at the same time

they found themselves short on

numbers.

“We had about 15 guys from

the previous year not returning

for the season so it was almost

like a call to arms.”

After playing his junior rugby

for rivals Waihora, Pietzner has

been a part of the furniture at

Lincoln and was part of Ellesmere

and Canterbury Country

rep teams for close to a decade.

If everything goes to plan with

recovery, 99 per cent of his vision

is expected to return.

However, it’s unlikely he will

pull on the Lincoln jersey in

another division one match.

“It’s not likely, 296 might be

where it ends. I’ve had a pretty

SPORTS

good run,” said Pietzner.

He plans on attending matches

this year to cheer on his side,

but admits he did miss the

team’s 23-37 loss to Waihora last

Wednesday night.

“No I didn’t get down and I’m

kind of happy I didn’t to be fair,”

he joked.

“My brother Gareth plays for

them as well so that’s always

added a bit of extra spice.”

Selwyn Times

Ladbrooks and Springston halls have re-opened after a much-needed revamp to meet new

building standard (NBS) requirements to withstand future seismic activity.

Work began on both halls late last year as part of a seismic strengthening programme, with

Ladbrooks Hall being completed in December 2017 and Springston Hall in January 2018.

The total cost of the Ladbrooks and Springston Halls seismic strengthening was $850,000.

Ladbrooks and Springston halls were both identified as requiring seismic strengthening by

engineering consultants through the detailed engineering evaluation survey process. The Council

decided to strengthen both halls to 67% NBS (or more), a target many other councils around

the country have set as a benchmark. Other work to ensure building code compliance was

undertaken. Both halls had fire, electrical and mechanical, accessibility and thermal improvements

to meet the new standards.

Re-opening ceremonies were held for both halls last month. Around 140 people attended the

Ladbrooks Hall re-opening including Ladbrooks School students who performed several songs.

Councillor Debra Hasson and Ladbrooks Community Hall Committee member, Margaret Bothwell

made speeches. Councillor Mark Alexander and City Care contractors were also in attendance.

Springston Hall reopening attracted a crowd of 40 attendees. A number of Selwyn Councillors

attended with Councillor Grant Miller speaking at the event. The ribbon was cut by Springston Hall

Committee Chairperson Neville Benny.

For information on the halls visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/facilities-and-parks/halls-and-communitycentres.

Join a Library Book Club today!

Are you an avid reader that loves discussing a good book? Selwyn District Libraries offer a range of

book clubs for all ages. From children to adults, there’s a club for everyone.

Children's Book Clubs

A great way to encourage your child to experience the fun and joy of reading – our Children's Book

Clubs are immensely popular. They meet once a month to share what they have been reading, see the

new books that have arrived at the library, take part in an activity and have afternoon tea as well.

Teen Book Club

Lincoln Library is running a Teen Book Club this year and we would love you to join us. Come along

and talk about the books you love, see the latest Young Adult titles, and get some help with your NCEA

texts. Drinks and snacks are provided.

Adult Book Groups

Book discussion groups are a fun and popular

way to expand your reading subjects, meet

people in your area and share your thoughts and

ideas about reading.

The sessions are organised to be a discussion

over a cup of tea and a bikkie, rather than

strict literary criticism. The group reads across

a variety of genres and this helps extend the

reading experience to include things you may

not necessarily have chosen before.

For information on when the clubs meet and

how to join visit www.selwynlibraries.co.nz.

Selwyn residents have the opportunity to win in their own local

Commonwealth Games Challenge this month.

The Lincoln Event Centre, Rolleston Community Centre, and Selwyn

Aquatic Centre are holding a Commonwealth Games Challenge to

celebrate the 2018 Commonwealth Games and raise awareness of

fitness opportunities here in Selwyn.

Selwyn District Council Senior Events and Recreation Advisor

Dave Tippett says the Challenge is a chance for existing or new

customers to be rewarded for attending fitness classes or swimming

at the pool.

“We encourage you to push yourself and participate in the

Challenge. If you’ve been thinking about trying something new, this

is a great opportunity to jump in to a fitness class or to get back in

the pool.”

“You’ll meet new people, discover new classes, challenge yourself,

set goals, test your comfort zone — and have fun,” he says.

The Challenge will take place during the Commonwealth Games,

from Wednesday 4 to Sunday 15 April.

To take part, collect a Commonwealth Games Challenge card from

any of the participating facilities. Attend an exercise class or have a

swim to get a podium level on the card signed off by facilities staff.

Sign off as many podium levels as possible and enter into either the

Gold, Silver or Bronze draw to be in to win.

A variety of fitness-inspired exercise gear and accessories will be up

for grabs.

Normal class and pool entry prices apply. For facility timetables go

Consultation on 10-year plan under way this week

Public feedback on the Council’s Long-Term Plan Consultation Document, Fast Forward ’28, opens

this week.

Fast Forward ’28 is our programme to provide the facilities and infrastructure for our growing population

needs, so that Selwyn remains a great place to live.

The plan sets out the key projects and activities the Council is planning over the next 10 years and

how these will be funded. Average annual rate rises of 4% are forecast over the next 10 years, with an

average increase of 5.7% next year, reflecting expenditure on major projects.

The Council has identified nine significant proposals for consultation, including a project to build an

indoor courts complex at Foster Park, and extensions to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre including a new

25-metre eight-lane pool to help meet continuing demand.

The Council is also proposing to introduce a new district-wide rating system for community centres,

halls and reserves, which would help smaller communities by ensuring funding is available for

improvements and upgrades. Three new community centres are proposed to be built over the next 10

years, at Hororata, Prebbleton and Leeston.

Community feedback is also sought on whether to introduce chlorination as an added protection to

household water supplies in some areas, in response to the Havelock North contamination last year.

More information, and copies of the consultation document, Fast Forward ’28, will be available from

Wednesday at www.selwyn.govt.nz/fastforward28 and from Council offices and libraries. Submissions

on the plan close at 5pm on Friday 4 May.

Lincoln High girls give

strong T20 performance

at Canty tournament

LINCOLN TENNIS Club

were unable to hold their

prize-giving tournament

due to wet courts last

weekend.

However, the wet

weather didn’t stop keen

juniors from having a hit

out before and after the

prize-giving ceremony.

The club has a great

group of juniors, with

many returning every year,

and a growing group of beginners

in their coaching

programme.

Prize winners:

•The coach’s

choice certificates

for beginners: Ariana

Johnson, Amelia

Preston and Aila

Wilson.

•The coach’s

LINCOLN High School

finished third at the

secondary schools

Canterbury girls’ cricket

tournament recently.

The tournament consisted

of four rounds of

Twenty20 games played

across two days.

The Lincoln team had

some girls new to the game

and some experienced

players.

Melissa Banks was the

star with bat in hand,

scoring two centuries and

finishing as the tournament’s

top run-scorer with

339 runs.

She scored 102 of Lincoln’s

165 runs in their

opening round 60-run

win against Villa Maria

College. In their second

match, Lincoln suffered a

37-run loss to Cashmere

High School.

Lincoln defeated Rangi

Ruru Girls’ School by five

runs in their final group

match to qualify for the

third and fourth play-off

match against Burnside

High School.

tournament,

defeating

some of

Christchurch’s

top schools.

In the play-off, Lincoln

batted first and set an

knock of 132 from

Banks.

Lincoln then restricted

Burnside to 156/3 to win

by 34 runs and claim third

spot.

The tournament was

won by Christchurch

will now represent the

Canterbury region at the

national tournament later

in the year.

Weedons teen goes international

• By Gordon Findlater

LACHIE STOVE departed for

England today on a six-month

scholarship which will see him

trade in the Weedons club, and

his parents’ house in Leeston, for

the Maften Hall Cricket Club and

life in a 19th-century mansion.

Stove, 17, is one of two recipients

for this year’s Willows’

Cricket Scholarship. The scholarship

will see him play cricket during

the New Zealand winter and

live at the Maften House where

he will be hosted by Sir Hugh and

Lady Blackett.

The original seat of the Blackett

family is now run as a four-star

hotel, spa and golf course.

“I know a few people that have

gone and they’ve said that they

had an awesome time,” said Stove.

“I’m going to have a great time

but it’s a bit frightening leaving

home to find out what’s waiting

for me there.”

Outside of cricket, Stove will

work at Maften Hall on a variety

of tasks such as working behind

the golf course’s bar.

One job he may be tailor-made

for could be a more hands on

approach at the 27-hole course.

Stove has grown up knowing a

thing or two about golf course

upkeep. His father is a former

greenkeeper at Templeton golf

course.

The bowling all-rounder has

just finished playing senior cricket

for Weedons over the summer.

He had a success in the Canterbury

Country premier one-day

competition taking 14 wickets at

an average of 13.50.

“I’ve really enjoyed playing

country cricket again after finishing

school at St Thomas. Being

able to play against senior guys

and learning from them has been

great.”

Stove will be joined by Rhys

Petrie from Waitaki Boys’ High

SPORTS

School on the scholarship which

has been running with the Willows

since 2003.

“We look for an all-round kid

with a good head on his shoulders.

Lachie fits that bill,” said

Willows founder Mike Dormer.

NEW HOME: The original seat

of the Blackett family, is now

run as a four-star hotel, spa

and golf course.

VACATION: Lachie Stove began his

trip to England today as part of a sixmonth

cricket scholarship. He is also

a handy rugby player, playing at first

XV level for St Thomas and rep level

for Canterbury Country.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Show home villages -

showcasing design

and innovation

The benefits of Show Home Villages

to both home buyers and home builders

are plenty. For home buyers, being

able to view numerous homes built by

various building companies, all in close

proximity, makes for a pleasant afternoon.

Information is on tap, knowledgeable sales

people are on hand to answer questions

and advise, and it’s a great opportunity

to see new trends in everything from

lighting to landscaping and to get ideas for

everything from kitchen design to décor.

For building companies, being able

to show off their latest designs and

innovations to such a collective, captive

audience is a marketing dream.

Selwyn is home to three Show Home

Villages, in Lincoln and Rolleston.

Faringdon is the South Island’s biggest,

with more show homes still to open. Just

off Goulds Road, in East Maddisons Road

there are homes from G.J. Gardner Homes,

Golden Homes, Today Homes, Peter Ray

Homes, Pringle Homes, Trident Homes,

and Artisan Homes.

Just around the corner on Lemonwood

Drive are homes by Benchmark Homes,

Green Homes, Milestone Homes, Jennian

Homes, and Hallmark Homes.

On Ledbury Drive are homes from R&B

Builders, Stonewood Homes, Signature

Homes, BOS Construction, and Compass

Homes.

Mike Greer Homes has show homes on

Shillingford Boulevard and on the corner

of Shillingford and Ragley Way.

Te Whariki in Lincoln is a joint venture

residential development between Ngai

Tahu and Lincoln University with reserves,

parks, walkways and cycle paths all

within walking distance of the established

township. The Show Home Village has

an office at 37 Vernon Drive, where, also

on Vernon Drive, there are homes built

by Trident Homes, G.J. Gardner Homes,

Bainbridge Homes, and Benchmark

Homes.

The Flemington Show Home Village, on

Craig Thompson Drive, Lincoln, brings

together eight show homes from leading

Canterbury home builders with a wide

range of designs, layouts and options.

Along from the Flemington Sales Office

are homes by Online Design and Build,

Homes By Parklane, Versatile Homes,

Homes By Maxim, Orange Homes, Green

Homes, Mike Greer Homes, and Fraemohs

Homes.

Each of the Show Home Villages have

websites with lots more information,

including opening hours. They are

tewhariki.co.nz

Make sure your vegetable garden

STAPLE: Kale is a superfood and is easy to grow.

• By Rachel Vogan

WITH EASTER out of the way,

it’s now time to work off that

chocolate and get busy in the

vegetable patch to ensure you

have plenty of fresh produce to

sustain and maintain you over the

upcoming months. Think salads

and slaws, soups and smoothies;

tasty nutritious food is at your

fingertips.

However, before you even

consider putting a seedling (or

seed) in the ground, make sure

you have replenished the soil with

some plant food and tucker. The

hottest months take the most

from the soil, and it is crucial

to put back what has been used

before you start again with a new

lot of plants. So, heap in barrow

loads or bags of compost, sheep

pellets or vegetable mix, and dig it

through before adding any

new crops.

CAVOLO NERO

Meet the upright cabbage

sometimes called Tuscan kale

or black cabbage. This close

cousin of kale is one of the

hardiest crops you can grow.

For me, this plant comes

into its own in autumn and winter

for purely ornamental reasons.

Growing to over 1m,

it not only brings food to the

garden but height, too.

Happy in most soils, it prefers

full sun, and is content in larger

patio tubs, buckets and urns. At

this time of year, opt for seedlings

as seeds will take a while to get

going, and watch out for white

butterflies; they love the young

leaves. One plant can keep

producing leaves for over a year,

as long as it isn’t allowed to go to

seed.

CORIANDER

Such a super green, this hardy

herb adores the cooler months of

year – unlike its other pungent

heat-loving mates, such as basil,

which will be turning up their

toes now.

Sow seeds now or plant out

fresh seedlings. For seeds, this

is as simple as scattering some in a

pot or in part of the garden. With

seedlings, find a sunny spot – in

the garden or in a bucket-sized

pot – plant and watch it romp

away. To avoid plants bolting and

going to seed, aim to keep the soil

moist, but not too wet or too dry.

KALE

This is probably the easiest

superfood to grow. It thrives

in sun and part shade, it grows all

year round, and, even better, it is a

cut-and-come-again crop, which

means you can harvest

a few leaves at a time and more

leaves will grow.

Look for seedlings now (seeds

take that much longer) and plant

way more than you think you will

need. You will find once you start

brewing stews and making soups

it will be constantly on the menu.

Kale happily thrives in pots and

tubs too. You can fit two plants in

a 10-litre kitchen bucket, so even

if you have no garden you have no

excuse not to have a few plants.

For me, I plant mine in the flower

garden, as they are quick to fill up

spaces and I like the contrasting

colour and texture they provide.

LETTUCE

Autumn is a great time to plant

more lettuce. Look to the leafy

types and rosette-like ones, such

as ‘Oak Leaf’, ‘Frisby’, ‘Drunken

Woman’, ‘Lollo Rossa’ and ‘Lollo

Bionda’. Red and green cos are

fabulous go-to autumn and

winter varieties too, along with

my favourite ‘Little Gem’. The

heart-forming lettuces do not

do as well over the colder months,

so avoid these unless you have a

greenhouse.

will keep giving

As for soil, they enjoy a fertile

free-draining soil and full sun is

best – although a few of the redleaved

types will grow okay in a

little shade. They loathe slugs and

snails, so be vigilant and lay bait

on a regular basis.

PAK CHOI

This is one crop I am never

without. It makes a meal in a

matter of minutes and is probably

the easiest of the vegetables I grow.

Seedlings are available all year

round, however seeds germinate

fairly quickly too. Allow a trowel

space between plants. They sprint

along when grown in

a rich soil, however they will cope

with poor soil.

You will find a range of varieties

about now. I like ‘Sumo’, which

is short and fat, although the red

varieties get my tick too, as their

dark red foliage is a visual treat.

When harvesting I use a sharp

knife to cut the head off, leaving

2cm of the stem in the ground.

After a few weeks a new set of side

‘chois’ appear and I leave these to

mature. How cool is

this crop!

TURNIP

Once considered only as a food

crop for livestock, these hardy

and easy-to-grow nuggets of

goodness are quickly becoming

a go-to autumn crop for many

foodies. Kings Seeds recommends

‘Snowball’, indicating that this one

has first-class white skin and flesh.

Turnips are a high source of fibre

and vitamin C. Did you know

the tops are edible too? They like

the same sort of conditions as

carrots, parsnips and radish – freedraining,

fertile soil and full sun.

RADISH

These tasty wee treats can be on

the menu all year round, especially

if you have a greenhouse. Even

when the soil temperatures drop

outside, these bite-sized crunchy

morsels will keep on growing.

Sow seeds now, either in the

garden or in shallow tubs and

bowls, and seedlings will appear

within a fortnight. Full sun and a

finely-worked soil please. Try to

sow the seeds a couple of finger

spacings apart, if you can, however

it’s not the end of the world if a few

more seeds than needed go in. All

going well you should be pulling

radishes in four to six weeks.

BROAD BEANS

It pains me every year to write

about a crop I like to grow but do

not eat. I grow them for my Mum,

who loves them, but I also grow

them for the bees as the plants

flower in late winter and spring

when little else is around.

The sooner they are in the

ground the better; the cool

weather stimulates all the

flower growth, which results

in cropping capacity. They need

a spot away from strong winds,

as the stalks will be over 1m tall

when mature.

For something a little different

look out for the red flowering

ones. They are super pretty

and have the same green edible

pods as the more run-of-the-mill

varieties.

ASPARAGUS

This is not a misprint; yes, you can

get a new crop of asparagus under

way now. The quickest way is to lift

and divide sections from existing

clumps. If you don’t have any, a wee

shoulder tap to someone that does

will do the trick.

Seeds could be sown now too;

online catalogues have a good

selection. Prepare the soil well by

digging in plenty of soft spongy

organic matter, like compost or

manure. Remember, this crop lasts

in your garden for years, so choose

a spot where it won’t be in the way

and one that has loads of sun.

FULL SUN: Cavolo nero is pretty and it’s edible, autumn is a

good time to plant. It is happy in most soils.

Autumn is

a fantastic

time of year

Fierce competition will

test young farmers’ skills

The Tasman Regional Final of the FMG

Young Farmer of the Year is being held at

Innovation Park in Templeton on April 7.

Among the eight finalists competing will

be partners Vanessa Robinson and Martin

Bates, who contract milk 360 cows near

Burnham.

The finalists will be asked to tackle a

series of gruelling modules testing their

technical and physical abilities.

“Competitors will face off in two

adrenaline-pumping head-to-head

practical challenges at 10.30am and 1pm,”

contest manager Bridget Johnson said.

“Entry to events during the day is free, so

it’s a great opportunity to see some of the

region’s best young farmers in action.”

The event culminates in a fast-paced agriknowledge

quiz and evening show hosted

by TV comedian Te Radar at Innovation

Park Hall.

“It’s possible Vanessa might beat me, but I

don’t want that to happen,” laughed Martin,

who’s a qualified builder.

“My strengths are the opposite of

Martin’s. He’s more practical than I am,”

Vanessa said.

They will be up against Megan Hands,

Andrew Wiffen, Roscoe Taggart, Stewart

Watson, Simon Ferguson and Jono

Satterwaite.

A prize pool of $21,000 is up for grabs

and the winner will secure a spot in the

prestigious FMG Young Farmer of the Year

Grand Final in Invercargill in July.

“At grand final, you have a one-in-seven

chance of taking out the title. That pressure

can make or break people,” Te Radar said.

The Tasman regional finals for TeenAg

and AgriKidsNZ will also take place in

Templeton on April 7.

More than 35 teams of students have

already registered for the two events.

“The aim of the contests is to get kids

excited about a career in the primary

industries,” competition co-ordinator

David Highsted said.

“Students tackle fun challenges, which

test their practical and theoretical skills.”

It’s the 50th anniversary of the iconic

agricultural competition, which was first

held in 1969.

Roscoe Taggart of Oxford is one of the eight finalists.

The Tasman Regional Final of the FMG Young Farmer of the

Year is being held at Innovation Park in Templeton on April 7.

Poor relationships could be costing

the country, research shows

New research from Lincoln University

shows poor relationships between farmers

and their meat processors could be costing

New Zealand. Dr Nic Lees said improving

those relationships was essential to New

Zealand producing higher value products

that meet consumer needs.

He surveyed over 1000 sheep, beef

and deer farmers. These three industries

together make up 12 per cent of New

Zealand’s exports and currently contribute

$5 billion a year to the New Zealand

economy.

“New Zealand is missing out on higher

market returns for meat exports because of

a lack of commitment and trust between

farmers and meat companies,” Dr Lees said.

“The majority of farmers do not

commit to forward supply contracts that

specify quality requirements and delivery

schedules.

“We effectively still have a system

driven by production rather than market

requirements. Farmers sell stock based

on their farming requirements and the

number of stock and quality often does not

match market needs,” he said.

Dr Lees said consumers were increasingly

making food choices based not only on

quality but also on factors such as food

safety, animal welfare, provenance and

environmental stewardship.

The research showed that long-term

committed relationships were necessary to

ensure farmers supplied stock to processors

that met these requirements.

“Furthermore, these closer relationships

meant that farmers were also more

profitable.

This means that it’s a win-win for farmers,

exporters and the New Zealand economy.

Though many have believed this to be

the case, this is the first time research has

clearly shown this.”

Increasing the value of exports provides

a way to earn more without having to

produce more. This can help to address the

current public concern about the impact

of expanding farm production on the

environment, he said.

“Therefore, the environment also

benefits.”

Dr Lees said the research had developed

tools for companies to measure the quality

of their relationship with suppliers and

identify what they can do to improve.

Though a number of exporters are already

using these tools, there is potential for

wider use by agricultural and horticultural

companies that want to improve

relationships with their suppliers.

“Expanding the use of these tools to other

sectors such as the dairy and horticultural

industries could significantly increase the

benefits of this research to the New Zealand

economy.”

dISCOVER

West Melton

community to

mark Anzac Day

The 2018 Anzac Day commemoration in West Melton will again

take place around the War Memorial, which stands in the West

Melton School grounds.

A recent monument in the township, it

was built to mark the Gallipoli centenary in

2015 by teacher Shane Dawson and school

caretaker John Blundell, and is inscribed

with the names of the 38 men from the local

area who died serving in World War One.

The commemoration will start at 10am,

with those wanting to attend advised to

arrive by 9.30am. MC for the event will be

Bruce Russell, the instigator of the memorial

installation, while the head boy and head

girl from West Melton School will give an

address based on what Anzac Day means

to them, and pupils from the school will lay

poppies on the memorial.

Music to mark the day will be presented,

with Leigh Walters again playing the

trumpet. This year, as has been the custom

in West Melton, the WWI tradition of a lone

piper playing the lament will be brought

back.

Six soldiers from Burnham Military

Camp will represent the Defence Force, and

there will also be representatives from the

Templeton RSA, who asked to attend this

year’s service.

Councillors from the Selwyn Ward will be

there, as well as people from as far afield as

Ashburton, who will come in recognition of

their relatives who lived locally, and served

in the War.

Bruce says the West Melton Residents

Association and the school are very

supportive of the event, and he is confident

it will be as successful as last year’s, when

250-300 people attended. After the service

morning tea will be served.

“A very warm welcome is extended to all.”

NOT JUST CURB APPEAL!

With manicured lawns and designer features this

279m2 beauty will impress before you open the

door. An expansive home on 1204m2 showcases

outstanding indoor/outdoor living options and an

impressive roofline extension with exposed truss

details.

The luxury kitchen complete with large WIP and

90cm freestanding oven complements the spacious

living area and designated dining space. All 3 living/

dining areas flow so easily out to an enviable covered

outdoor entertaining space. There is a spacious master

bedroom, excellent walk in robe and pampering

ensuite with double-head, fully-tiled shower. The

remaining 3 bedrooms are all of double-size and have

wardrobes to match. A sought after, 3 car garage with

drive through opens to a huge parking pad, garden

sheds and lush green lawn beyond. There is obvious

pride taken here, not only with the design of the home

but careful and meticulous maintenance that will

capture the eye (and hearts) of many.

Show homes

the ultimate way to shop around

Across the selwyn district, we are blessed with an

extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle, featuring all the

latest in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you ;will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get

a good idea of pricing, discover good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long-term returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check

out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.
