Last chance to see war display

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE PUBLIC gets its last chance

to see Prebbleton’s military

history on Wednesday.

The annual Anzac display in

the Prebbleton Hall has again

attracted many people since it

opened at the weekend.

On Monday Prebbleton

Heritage group member Averil

Carpenter (above) was getting

everything spick and span for

Anzac Day.

The display running in Prebbleton

for the past five years,

will come to an end on Wednesday.

The Prebbleton Heritage group

has been organising Anzac

displays since 2014 to mark the

centenary of World War 1.

Driver

seriously

hurt in

spectacular

crash

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A SUSPECTED drink driver who

was allegedly speeding and not

wearing a seat belt is lucky to be

alive after a spectacular crash on

Saturday.

The man, in his late 50s, hit a

power pole in Leeston, the vehicle

then crashed through a fence,

became airborne and landed in a

paddock where it overturned.

He was found outside the vehicle,

seriously injured.

“It was very lucky it wasn’t a

fatal,” Constable Herb Inwood

said yesterday.

The crash happened on Leeston

And Lake Rd at 6pm. The driver

was from Leeston.

Constable Herb Inwood said

there were three major contributing

factors to the crash, suspected

alcohol, speed and not wearing a

seat belt.

He was uncertain whether

the man had crawled out of the

vehicle after it had stopped or had

been thrown out.

Constable Inwood said the

man had driven around a gentle

right-hand bend when he drifted

left into the grass on the side of

the road. He then over-corrected,

shot across to the right, crossing

the centre-line and took out the

pole and fence before ending up

in the paddock.

No bond yet for plant

SELWYN TIMES

THAT’S ONE very lucky fellow on page

1 today; the suspected drink driver who

crashed in Leeston on Saturday.

Suspected I say because the results from

a blood test taken at the hospital are yet to

find their way into the hands of the police.

The three factors for tragedy were aligning though – alcohol

(to be confirmed), speed and not wearing a seat belt.

The vehicle hit a pole, went through a fence, got airborne and

rolled before coming to a stop.

The guy has serious head injuries, but as police say, he’s very

lucky he wasn’t killed.

But the luckiest bit was that he didn’t hit someone else.

If you’re going out, leave the car at home.

Call for 50m pool at aquatic centre

• By Emily O’Connell

A $12 million extension to the

Selwyn Aquatic Centre has

sparked debate on how long a

proposed pool should be.

The district council is proposing

to build a new 25m, eightlane

programme pool.

The centre currently has a

25m pool, hydrotherapy pool,

learn to swim pool and a leisure

pool with a lazy river and toddlers

area.

But some

people believe

the new pool,

which will cost

$9.3 million,

should be 50m

long.

“Go

Gary Doyle

the 50m.

Twenty-five

seems to be a

waste. Rolleston is the town of

the future. Only getting bigger

and bigger,” one person commented

on a Facebook post on

the Rolleston Community Page.

“Go for the 50. Let’s not be

asking this question again in

five years time,” another wrote.

“A 50m pool would be cheaper

to do than to do a 25m now and

then another in a few years time.

Population growth is central to

PLANS: Locals want the Selwyn Aquatic Centre’s proposed

expansion to include a 50m pool rather than another 25m

one. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Rolleston area, makes sense to

update facilities available to the

public,” another commented.

District councillor Mark

Alexander also commented on

the post inviting people to make

submissions on the proposal

and asking how much they were

willing to pay in rates “to have

projects extended.”

Weedons Residents’ Association

secretary Gary Doyle told

the Selwyn Times there have

been proposals to have a 50m

pool since he was a councillor

and they were first planning the

centre.

He believes the only two

councillors with “any swimming

experience” were excluded

from being on the committee.

Mr Doyle said having a longer

pool is “logical” but he has “no

faith” in the district council.

“The cost [of a 50m pool] of

course will be about three times

or more than what it would have

been if it had been done originally,”

he said.

The cost of the project will be

funded by borrowing, repaid by

an increase in the swimming

pools targeted rate from $124 to

$174 for Rolleston.

Rates for inner district will

increase from $87 to $122 and

outer district rates will increase

from $31 to $43.

The centre’s extension also

includes a $1.1 million cafe and

outdoor courtyard and $1.6 million

fitness and wellbeing space.

•To share your views on

the extension please make

a submission on the district

council’s long term plan http://

TOURISM FUND

The district council is compiling

a list of potential projects in the

Long Term Plan 2018-2028 it

could apply for funding under

the Government’s Tourism

Infrastructure Fund. A total of

$14.2 million will be granted to

councils around the country. So

far, projects the district council is

considering applying for funding

includes adding additional capacity

to the Dunsandel public toilets

and upgrading the existing shower

and toilet facilities and effluent

system at Kowai Pass. It is also

looking at upgrading the Arthur’s

Pass wastewater treatment site,

facilities at the Rakaia Gorge,

placing additional dump sites for

campervans across the district,

mountain-biking access and

cellphone coverage. The council is

expected to submit the projects for

consideration by Monday.

LEESTON ATM

On April 18, the Selwyn Times

reported that Leeston had lost

its Westpac ATM, but customers

could use the township’s BNZ and

Kiwibank ATMs without incurring

a fee. This was incorrect. Leeston is

now left with only the BNZ ATM

for Westpac customers to use.

The Kiwibank ATM was removed

several years ago. The Selwyn Times

apologises for the error.

BYLAW APPROVED

The district council adopted

the cemetery bylaw at its

public meeting last week.

The draft bylaw updates

the existing 2011 bylaw

and regulates the use and

management of council

cemeteries. A public hearing

was held in February with

two submissions received.

The bylaw is largely based

on the existing 2011 bylaw,

but includes some changes

to ensure legislative

compliance.

FOUR HURT IN CRASH

One person sustained

moderate injuries and three

people minor injuries after

a crash at the intersection of

West Coast Rd and Curve

Rd in Sheffield. The Sheffield

and Springfield volunteer

fire brigades, police and

ambulance were called out

to the incident on Thursday

at 12.57pm. Chief fire office

Neville Croy said a car was

“t-boned” by an oncoming

vehicle after it pulled out of

Curve Rd onto the West Coast

Rd. He said both vehicles were

damaged and had to be towed

away. A St John spokesman

said two people were

transported to Christchurch

Hospital.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A environmentally-beneficial

processing plant has been given

the green light to be built in

Burnham, in spite of a bond not

yet being secured.

The district council approved

leasing its land at Pines Recovery

Park to allow

company

Eneform Ltd

to construct a

pyrolysis plant

at its public

meeting last

week.

But the

figure for the

bond, expected

to be paid

by Eneform

Ltd, has not yet been finalised by

council staff.

The bond raised concerns

around the district council table

last week, in spite of councillors

being supportive of the project.

As a result, the district council

amended its motion to approve

the lease of land subject to an

appropriate bond being secured.

Other conditions included

appropriate regulatory consents

being contained and comprehensive

risk, health and safety

measures put in place.

The plant to be located at 183

Burnham School Rd, will use

pyrolysis technology to break

down tyres and plastic and

reduce ongoing environmental

issues related to end-of-life tyres.

The district council’s asset

manager Murray Washington

told Selwyn Times it is expected

the bond will be confirmed in

the next couple of months.

At the meeting, district councillor

John Morten said while he

supported the recommendation

he was looking for a bond or

guarantee in case something

“unforeseen” happened.

His views were supported

by fellow councillors Murray

Lemon, Craig Watson, Nicole

Reid and Jeff Bland.

Solid waste manager Andrew

Boyd said a bond has been written

into the draft lease agreement

but the amount has not

been specified.

“We would take advice of industry

experts around what that

figure would be estimated at to

cover ourselves,” he said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

District councillor Jeff Bland

But Mayor Sam Broughton

required.

Said Cr Bland: “We have ultimate

responsibilities over this as

councillors. We are delegating

our responsibilities. The usual

process is that something is presented

to council and we accept

or decline it.”

Mr Broughton said the district

council has done due process

on the proposal and have gone

“very in-depth with it.”

Cr Bland said Eneform Ltd

should pay the bond or not get

the lease.

Said Mr Broughton: “I think

that is our motion. Without

that being met the whole thing

doesn’t happen.”

Construction of the plant is

planned to begin in the second

half of this year.

Water concern prompts meeting

over permanent chlorination

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PUBLIC meeting will be held

in Glentunnel to gauge concern

over the district council’s plans

to permanently chlorinate water

supplies in parts of Malvern.

Residents have been left

upset after the district council

confirmed it will chlorinate

the Sheffield-Waddington and

Malvern Hills Hartleys Rd water

supplies in July and August.

Townships

affected by the

chlorination

include Whitecliffs,

Glentunnel,

Coalgate,

Sheffield and

Kerry Pauling

Waddington.

Residents are

being encouraged

to make as many submissions

as possible to the district

council.

“We felt something has got to

be done about it . . . hopefully we

will get a lot of people,” said one

of the meeting’s organisers Brian

Thompson.

He said district council representatives

have been invited to

the meeting and he is hoping to

change its mind.

The district council’s water

services asset manager Murray

England told Selwyn Times last

week pipe breaks, backflow, illegal

connections and reservoir

failures in the supplies had led to

the chlorination.

The issue of chlorination was

also discussed at the Sheffield-

Waddington Community Committee

meeting on Thursday.

Malvern Community Board

deputy chairman Kerry Pauling

said everyone at the meeting was

told if they want to make their

feelings known to the council

they need to make a submission.

He said several good points

were raised at the meeting by

farmers who use the Malvern

Hills Hartleys Rd water supplies

to feed livestock.

“The stock don’t like chlorination

water and don’t drink

enough. They get dehydrated . . .

there is not an alternative source

to get water from,” Mr Pauling

said.

Another concern raised

was chlorination causing the

environment to become more

sterile which could lead to the

weakening of children’s immune

systems.

Mr Pauling said permanent

chlorination would not be popular

with 90 per cent of residents,

and a large contingent from

Sheffield is likely to travel to the

Glentunnel meeting.

But Sheffield volunteer chief

fire officer Neville Croy said it

was a done deal and the district

council will have made up their

minds.

“I don’t see any need for

chlorination. I don’t think it is

necessary,” he said.

Mr Thompson said a lot of

people were “seriously” concerned

about the chlorination

and no one he has spoken to is

in favour of chlorination.

He said if the district council

did not change its decision he

and his wife will consider buying

a well to get off the scheme.

Emergency team set up

• By Emily O’Connell

A TEAM has been set up to

respond to emergencies in the

district.

A report on the Civil Defence

emergency management update

was passed at the Selwyn District

Council meeting last week.

It included the creation of a

Selwyn response team – which

has 26 volunteers.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the volunteers have completed

more than 1000 hours of training

since beginning January.

He said the training covered

a range of topics such as search

and rescue, sandbagging, communications,

first aid, food and

control.

“We never want to have to

use them . . . but we have got

local people committed and

trained and ready to respond on

Selwyn’s behalf,” Mr Broughton

said.

The team expects to achieve

basic operational capability

within the next month.

The report said a major South

Island response team exercise is

coming up at the end of May and

will mostly be based in Selwyn.

The Selwyn team will participate

in the exercise.

“Thank you council for supporting

that and I think our

Fire rages, homes at risk

community will certainly benefit

in the next emergency,” Mr

Broughton said.

The report also touched on

other emergency updates such

as the finalisation of a tsunami

plan, alpine fault planning activities

and the rollout of a new

public education package for

schools.

The district council also plans

to create a volunteer welfare

team consisting of about 20

people who can run and staff a

welfare centre during long duration

events.

orange lights to us.

So we worked with her to build a

colour palette around them.

Riders to pay Anzac tribute

TWENTY- FIVE horses

and riders from The New

Zealand Mounted Rifles

Trust will attend one

the district’s Anzac Day

services.

The service will be held

at the Greendale Memorial

Gates commemorating the

last year of World War 1.

Greendale Anzac Day

organiser Ian Warren said

the service has particular

significance for Selwyn as

it was from its rural areas

that both soldiers and

horses came to make up

the Canterbury Mounted

Rifles Regiment.

Thirteen of the soldiers

from Greendale were in

the Canterbury Yeomanry

Cavalry which became

part of the Canterbury

Mounted Rifles Regiment.

In turn, it became part of

the New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Brigade which

fought at Gallipoli and the

Middle East.

The trust’s horses will

ride down Mills Rd to

Warrens Rd, then to

Coaltrack Rd and along

Bridge Rd to Greendale Rd.

If time is short or the

day is wet the horses will

take the shorter route from

Mills Rd along Greendale

Rd to the domain.

The service will be held

at 2.30pm at the Greendale

Memorial Gates, Greendale

Paige Sullivan

Youth council leader linking

Rolleston’s Paige Sullivan, 17, is chairwoman of the Selwyn Youth Council. The

Lincoln High School student speaks to Georgia O’Connor-Harding about

the council’s current public bus service trial, her love of speedway and

a project she is working on to address the social stigma experienced

by former prisoners

Why did you decide to take

on the role of chairwoman?

I was deputy chairwoman

last year so I think the whole

experience of that leadership and

watching former chairwoman

Ella McClure do such a good

job is really something I was

inspired to step up into. I am

really passionate about the youth

council and Selwyn. I thought

it was an opportunity for me to

learn a lot of stuff and help out

Selwyn as much as I could.

How are you finding the job

at the moment?

I am loving it. It has been so

great. To be honest I think my

favourite part is seeing our new

deputy chairwoman Katelyn

Twiss step up. It has been really

exciting for me. I mentored her

in 2016 on a leadership camp.

It was exciting for me to help

build her up and see her step into

that role. I think as chairperson

it has been awesome to guide

everyone and help them out and

bring opportunities to them.

Recently the youth council

attended ACTIVATE, which is

the South Island Youth Connect

2018 event. I am on the Youth

Voice Canterbury management

team as well, so I was part of

the organising team. It was

really awesome to bring them

along and expose them to the

networking and workshops.

It was awesome to see them

mingling around and getting to

know youth councillors from all

over the South Island.

How is the Selwyn Link bus

service trial going?

Very well. I heard from one

of the girls on the youth council

the bus was so full we ended up

having to turn down a couple

of people, which is absolutely

insane. At the end, we will

take all that data and take it to

Environment Canterbury.

What are some other major

projects in Selwyn you are

working on?

The next big thing coming up

is Teen Fest. We haven’t really

fully gotten into that yet because

we have been focusing so much

on Selwyn Link. But basically

what it is looking like is a week

full of activities for teenagers.

It is like KidsFest but

for older kids. It is

going to be full

of workshops

and fun

activities

and just

teaching

teenagers

a lot of

skills. I am

thinking this

year the youth

council will be getting

more involved in writing

submissions to the district

council and Parliament – we

will see if any bills come up we

are passionate about.

What would you change

about Selwyn?

It would probably stem

from Selwyn Link, so having

a permanent bus service for

isolated young people. I think

that is really important. I think

it would probably increase that

connectedness. We had a ‘What

do YOUth think?’ to get feedback

on the Rolleston Library.

We consulted youth about what

they would like to see, what they

think would be important in

the library. We got heaps of cool

ideas from that.

Was there any key feedback

from that?

A lot of it was to do with having

charging points for electric

devices. That is what they all

seem to have a consensus on,

stops.

saying ‘we want charging points

everywhere’.

What are the other members

of the youth council like? Do

you have a lot of interesting

debates?

Definitely. The youth council

is an awesome team. Every single

youth councillor has that voice

to speak out if they don’t agree

with something at a meeting.

We always end up not so much

debating, but everyone shares

their opinion, which is really

awesome.

Do you have any childhood

memories that inspired you to

get involved with helping others

in the community?

It probably would have been

my mum and dad. We moved

out to Rolleston when I was

about 10. They joined the

Lincoln Rotary Club. I used to

go along with them to all their

volunteering and that is what

inspired me to find the youth

council and do something of my

own.

Tell me about the Zonta

competition you are involved

in?

That is through the Zonta

young women and public affairs

award and we had to put

in an application. You had to

be interviewed if you got shortlisted.

But I ended up winning

the Christchurch south young

women in public affairs award.

That was a $500 scholarship and

through that they put your application

up to the national channel.

That is still being decided

but they pick one person from

New Zealand and then, through

that, one person goes into the

international competition. Then

I think they pick 10 winners for

the international competition. I

had to fill out a big application

and you had talk about your

view on women leaders. I had

to talk about all the things I had

done – my views and stuff like

that. They will pick the person

they think deserves it.

communities together

What are your views around

women and leadership?

I do think we still have a long

way to go. I always had the view

the empowerment of women

needs to start in our local community.

I think once we can

master empowering them at this

level then it will start to branch

up. I think, through the youth

council, we have had a lot of

empowerment for women. Especially

myself being a woman as

the chairperson is really exciting.

What other achievements

have you had?

I was recently appointed onto

the Ministry of Youth Development

partnership fund. My

induction is next week. I get

flown up to Auckland. It is really

exciting. It will be my first time

being on a board, not as a youth

representative – just as a board

member. That is really exciting.

I will be advocating for young

people.

What are your favourite

subjects at school?

Probably accounting, business

studies and economics are my

favourite.

Are there any cool projects

you are working on at the

moment?

We are just starting our first

business. Last year we did a

business of selling bacon and egg

muffins at school, but this year

we have decided to do something

with a bigger social impact.

We are creating a book. We are

considering partnering with the

New Zealand Howard League for

Penal Reform. They advocate for

prisoners’ rights. We are going

to be making a book that has got

stories of ex-prisoners who have

turned their lives around after

prison. We want to get rid of that

social stigma. The organisation

we are potentially partnering

with will have all the stories for

us which is really cool. We had

a meeting with them a couple

of weeks ago and they were

excited to get on board. I think

its head office is just based in

Christchurch.

JUMP: Selwyn Youth Council member Maisie Wood, deputy chairwoman Katelyn Twiss, chairwoman Paige Sullivan and member

Gabriel Clarke went zip-lining last year.

How did you come up with

this idea?

We were kind of sitting around

in a circle and we were thinking

of something we could do. We

first started off with an idea of

a book – originally one with

stories of people in retirement

homes but then we thought

everyone has kind of done that

anyway. We were trying to do

something like the Humans of

New York Facebook page. Then

our teacher said to us ‘hey, what

about this?’ And we all just

clicked onto the idea of stories of

ex-prisoners and were like ‘awesome

let’s do that’.

What are you hoping to do

when you leave school?

I want to go to Canterbury

University next year and do a

double degree in law and commerce.

I would like to work as

a lawyer for youth law. I would

love to run my own business one

day. I just haven’t had a really

good idea yet.

Is there anything about you

that others would be surprised

to learn?

It would probably be that I

love speedway, People wouldn’t

expect that. I worked over the

season as a ticket-seller at Woodford

Glen Speedway.

Why do you like it?

I don’t know, I just always

have. I think it is really exciting.

It is quite fast-paced. I find it

easier than other sports to keep

up with the rules and what is

going on.

Do you have a favourite

sports star?

Definitely New Zealand stockcar

driver Asher Rees.

Would you take part in the

sport yourself?

I did for a while. I don’t think

it really fits my lifestyle. We don’t

really have the room at home

and mum and dad aren’t into it

and I wouldn’t really have anyone

to help me with it. It is more

of an on-the-side hobby I like to

go and watch.

Do you have any other

hobbies you enjoy?

Probably just playing sport.

I played netball for quite a few

years and I am starting rugby

this year as well. I have always

wanted to, but I was always too

scared too play. I was talking to

Katelyn who plays rugby. She

said ‘give it a go’ and I was like

‘you know what, I will’.

Street names ruffle feathers

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A NEW subdivision featuring

bird-themed street names has

taken flight in Rolleston.

Squawk St, Feather Place,

Claw Place and Pallid Green are

some of the quirky bird names

to feature at the new Falcon’s

Landing subdivision, located off

Lincoln-Rolleston Rd.

The subdivision’s 35 new

roads and four private right of

ways names were presented to

the district council for the final

rubber-stamp last week.

But the names were not

approved without ruffling a

few feathers around the district

council table.

District councillor Jeff Bland

said: “Do we really want a

Squawk St.’’

Mayor Sam Broughton said the

names come down to personal

preference with the developers

and the “wriggle room” the

district council thinks it might

have, doesn’t often exist.

He said the alternative names

provided “Migratory” and

“Territory” weren’t much better.

The district council’s

asset manager Murray

Washington said he has a

“good laugh” sometimes when

he sees these names come

through.

He said the names can be sent

SQUABBLE: A new subdivision in Rolleston featuring

bird-themed street names was a topic of discussion around

the district council table last week. Inset: Sam Broughton

back to the developers for further

consideration.

Mr Broughton told Cr Bland if

he wanted Squawk St changed he

needed to give a reason why.

Cr Bland responded: “Let’s put

it this way, would you like to live

in as street called Squawk St?

Honestly.”

Mr Broughton said it

depended on what sort of house

he was moving into and did

not think the street name was

important.

But Cr Bland retorted: “If they

can’t do better than that, I am

surprised they have managed to

subdivide that large area of land.

Let’s not let themselves down at

the last post.”

Cr Murray Lemon said since

everyone else was having their

“two cents worth,” he said

unless it was going to cause

danger because it confused

emergency services or was

offensive, he didn’t have a

problem with it.

“If they want to call it Squawk

St and try sell some sections on

it and find it difficult that is their

business,” he said.

District councillor Nicole Reid

also raised her concerns the

proposed name Barbary St was

too similar to Bradbury Ave in

Rolleston.

The road names were passed

with Cr Bland and Cr Reid’s vote

recorded against the decision.

display

•From page 1

Organiser Daphne McAven

said the display was opened in

2014 because the Department of

Internal Affairs asked all history

groups across the country to

commemorate 100 years of

World War 1.

“It is the fifth, and it will be the

final one, because the armistice

was signed in 1918,” she said.

The display, taking over the

whole Prebbleton Hall, opened

on Saturday.

It had 200 people through

over the weekend and about 50

people on Monday, including

Mayor Sam Broughton.

It is made up of large

collections of weapons,

uniforms, hats, water bottles,

medical equipment, compasses

and stories of Prebbleton soldiers

who served in both World Wars.

Mrs McAven said even

whistles blown at Gallipoli

are on display. She said the

displays are a lot of work to set

up and the group is fortunate

to have collectors around the

community who trust them to

display their precious items.

The display is open from 10am

until 4pm on Wednesday.

Notices

Police and Council focus

on road safety

Mayor Sam Broughton, Councillor Nicole Reid and Inspector Peter Cooper at the Shands/Springs Road intersection.

Selwyn District Council and Police are concerned about crashes and fatalities on Selwyn’s roads

and are working together to reduce risk for road users.

Councillor Nicole Reid, Chair of the Road Safety Committee, says road crashes impose a massive

and unacceptable burden of death, pain and suffering on Selwyn communities. Research shows

that every road death affects a huge network of people, not just the victim’s direct family and

friends, while Victim Support provides assistance to an average of eight people per crash victim.

“As a district we have been working towards our district vision of ‘zero deaths and serious injuries

on Selwyn roads’ for some time, and we are serious about working towards that vision,” she says.

“We support the new Government’s stance on road safety championing Vision Zero which is

a proven strategy to reduce the number of road deaths and serious injuries and is used in a

growing number of countries and cities around the world. It aims to change how governments,

stakeholders and the population approach road safety. A core message is there are no

‘accidents’, but crashes where the cause is preventable.”

“The term road toll implies that a cost must be paid to use the roads, but people don’t have to die

to use the roads and we shouldn’t accept it as an inevitability.”

The Council’s road safety strategy involves a partnership with NZ Police and other key partners, to

reduce crashes and improve road safety. This is done through a long-term, coordinated framework

of safety initiatives aimed at educating road users about risks and consequences associated with

driving, walking and cycling on the roads, to make better decisions about their behaviour.

In recent months the Council and other agencies have collaborated on campaigns including

intersection safety, fatigue, school crossings, drink driving, speed around school buses, and

motorcycle safety. Activities coming up include a winter driving campaign, and continuing work

with primary schools around active transport.

Inspector Peter Cooper says Police are primarily focusing on seatbelts, alcohol, cell phones and

speed as main risk factors to road safety.

“A high proportion of crashes are happening at rural intersections,” says Inspector Cooper. With

over 2000 intersections in the district, Selwyn is one of the highest risk districts for intersection

crashes in New Zealand. We see both tourists and locals who are familiar with the local roads

being killed in these crashes.

“So far in 2018 there has been a significant increase in motorcyclist fatalities, with 16

motorcyclists killed nationally.

“We advise road users to treat every intersection with care. Stop means stop. The emotional toll

on our families, the community and the emergency services attending these crashes, has to stop.

“Safety on our roads is everyone’s responsibility and must be taken seriously. Saving lives starts

with each of us and the decisions we make behind the wheel.

“The majority of fatal and serious crashes are human error. Leave the alcohol alone, put on your

seatbelt, put down your phone, lift your foot off the accelerator, concentrate at the intersection

and we can all arrive home safely.”

Library survey aimed at better services

Selwyn District Libraries are seeking input from the community to improve their services.

The 2018 Library Survey will take place from 23 April–5 May and aims to gather feedback about the

services, resources and programmes offered by the libraries. The main aim of the project is to review

core and holiday programmes, as well as evaluate customer feedback gathered during the year.

Current library members as well as non-members are encouraged to participate in the survey to provide

data for planning and development for future years.

The survey is designed to take only a few minutes to complete, and asks users a range of questions,

such as which services and programmes respondents are aware of and have used, as well as where

improvements could be suggested.

The online survey can be accessed at the libraries’ website (www.selwynlibraries.co.nz). It is also

available to be completed at the Rolleston, Leeston, Lincoln or Darfield libraries using in-house iPads.

Printed copies are also available at the libraries, including the Mobile Library.

The Selwyn District Libraries undertake a survey every two years. Information is gathered by external

research company Resona. All survey responses are anonymous and confidential.

Feedback sought on Draft

Walking and Cycling Strategy

Do you support adding more walkways and cycleways to connect

townships across Selwyn?

As part of the Long-Term Plan 2018-2028 the Council is seeking

community views on the Draft Walking and Cycling Strategy and

Action Plan for Selwyn.

The Draft Strategy is an update to the current Strategy adopted in

2009. It aims to improve walk/cycle networks within and between

townships, and proposes increased funding for annual township

footpath extensions and for major cycleway projects.

A total of seven major new cycleways are proposed over the 10-

year period, including:

· Doyleston to Leeston 2018/19 $895,000

· Rolleston to Templeton 2020/21 $418,000

· Darfield to Kirwee 2022/23 $1,094,000

· Jones Road 2023/24 $840,000

· Templeton to Prebbleton 2024/25 $588,000

· West Melton to Rolleston 2026/27 $908,000

· Springston to Rolleston 2027/28 $622,000

The cost of this proposed programme is $5.5 million, with projects

partly funded by NZTA subsidy, along with rates and development

contributions. The impact on the rates payable by a $600,000

property is around $4 per year once the work is complete.

We want to hear your views on the Strategy. To find out more about

this issue, and other proposals in our Long-Term Plan – and to share

your views – visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/fastforward28.

ON THE

ROADS

Masefield Drive/Rolleston Drive

On the roads this week

Stabilised seal repairs will be occurring on Harts

Road, Drain Road and Wards Road. Reseals

will occur on Volkman Road, Drain Road and

Leeston Taumutu Road. Please stop on request

at these sites. Culvert works will occur on

Bulls Road and Intake Road. Drainage works

will be carried out on Ridge Road. Footpath

reconstruction will be carried out in Leeston.

Last week Fulton Hogan were on the southern side of the

intersection, constructing the second soak pit, pouring the traffic

signal pole foundations and preparing the new footpath. They

also trenched along the north east corner by Countdown to install

a new power cable. This week they’ll continue work in the north

east corner, removing the existing and preparing the new kerb and

channel, footpath, retaining wall and constructing the final soak pit.

Jones Road/Hoskyns Road

Last week Isaac Construction continued with storm water works,

which included sumps, basins and soak pits. They also excavated

for seal widening and prepared the new kerb and channel in the

north east corner of the intersection. By the end of the week they

intend to have all of the storm water works complete, all new kerb

and channel poured and new footpaths completed. They will then

start the pavement construction works from Monday 30 April, which

will be completed under road closures, closing a single leg of the

intersection at a time in order to maintain short length detour routes.

Tai Tapu households will soon be installed with water meters. Tai Tapu is the latest township to

receive meters as part of a district-wide process.

Installation of water meters at households connected to these supplies will begin on Monday 30 April,

and is scheduled to be completed by June.

Around 90% of Council supply households across the district are already on meters. Metering has been

shown to reduce water consumption as it links water use to charging – so households that use less

water benefit from lower charges, while those using more pay higher charges. Households with average

water use will find their total charge remains similar to what they currently pay.

You can help avoid incurring extra charges by monitoring your water use – see www.selwyn.govt.nz/

watermetering for more information and tips on how to read your water meter.

the Murray Cooper Shield

with a last-gasp 32-30 win

over Lincoln on Saturday at

LYNDSAY DICK continues

to give back to the sport she

was first introduced to as a

five-year-old.

The Ellesmere Tennis Sub-

Association competitions

committee member was

named senior volunteer of the

year at the Tennis Canterbury

awards.

She received the award for

her role as administrator of

Tennis Canterbury’s seniors’

group, which consists of more

than 200 players over the age

IRWELL CLUB tennis player

Diego Quispe-Kim is a

motivated 12-year-old.

Diego has been named

Tennis Canterbury male junior

of 35. While the role sees Ms

Dick (above) in the city more,

she remains loyal to

her country roots.

“It’s great for people

to see tennis as a game

that can be played at

any age and that there

are opportunities in

the sport.”

Ms Dick started

playing tennis 55 years

ago as a five-year-old.

“It was a family

sport that we all played on the

weekend and I learned the

game by hitting the ball up

the game close.

The lead changed three

times in the last 10min.

Lincoln had held the shield

for 11 seasons until Southbridge

beat them to take it last

year.

The result was the perfect

way for Southbridge prop

Jimmy Harvey to celebrate his

150th game.

Southbridge coach Doug

Maginness said his team initially

ran the visitors off their

feet before poor ball-handling

and ill-discipline cost them

their advantage.

“We played an up-tempo

style which worked for us but

we let ourselves down with

not treasuring the ball like we

should have,” he said.

Maginness praised No 8 Jale

Masi for his strength with the

ball in hand.

“On both sides of the ball

player of the year.

Fresh off his national 12s

singles victory at Wilding Park

in January, he is eager to add

the 14s, 16s and 18s titles in the

coming years.

Diego trains with his father,

Juan Quispe-Kim, 20 hours a

week and models his forehand

and serve off world No 1,

Spaniard Rafa Nadal.

“I try to keep my serve and

forehand as consistent as

possible,” he said. “I want to

win all the age-group national

titles in the coming years.”

against our garage door.”

She has been a regular on

the Christchurch

inter-club scene

since 1978.

She has spent most

of her time between

division one and

premier and has

returned in recent

years to the club she

first started with,

Hagley Park.

“I plan on retiring

from the higher level of tennis

soon, but I’ll continue playing

tennis at other levels,” she

he was fantastic,” Maginness

said.

He also praised reserve

halfback Mitchell Prendergast,

who was not a regular senior A

halfback but managed to play

75min off the bench due to a

serious achilles injury to Luke

Palmer.

Lincoln coach Matt Lowe

said his team struggled to cope

with Southbridge’s width in

attack early.

Irwell 12-year-old named

Tennis Canty player of the year

FUTURE CHAMP: Diego

Quispe-Kim looks to have

a bright future in tennis.

Diego had an unlikely first

encounter with the sport.

He was three-years-old and

kicking a soccer ball with

his dad at a park next to the

Burnside Tennis Club. “We

were invited over by a family

friend and it turned out I

showed more talent with

a tennis racket than I did

kicking the soccer ball,” he

said.

Diego said he embraces

training hard and likes the

court-coverage style of play

which Nadal is known for.

said. “You never give up.”

Her passion for promoting

rural tennis led her to become

a member off the Tennis

Canterbury board.

“It’s always nice to receive

such an award because

you don’t do it for the

recognition,” she said.

Ms Dick says the

Canterbury seniors’ season

is busiest during the winter

months.

As well as tennis, Ms Dick is

also a keen badminton player

but she says tennis holds a

special place with her.

Southbridge’s Matthew Hickey and Lincoln’s Sam Cottam slip in tandem.

Lincoln’s Andy Munro rises high to claim the ball in the lineout; Jimmy Wilkins

makes a run in space; Southbridge’s Ratuniumaia Luvenitoga off-loads the ball.

to retain Murray Cooper Shield

But he said the team did well

to claw their way back into the

contest.

“We missed a few tackles

which led to some 40m tries, and

our cover defence wasn’t as good

as it should have been,” Lowe

said.

Lincoln chose to take the game

to Southbridge in the forwards

which paid dividends.

“We found holes around

the ruck and made the most

of them,” Matt said. Blindside

flanker Vaughan Thomson and

hooker Sam Cottam had high

work rates throughout.

There will be two rounds of

action this week, with an Anzac

then get it under way. Add in

plenty of compost to the existing

soil and blood and bone as a base

fertiliser. To stop winter veges

from getting water logged, ensure

you slightly raise the area you are

planting in so water can drain

easily.

•By planting winter vegetables

now, they will have enough time

to become well established before

the onset of the cold, wet, winter

weather. You can sow your own

seeds into seed trays indoors or

directly into the garden, depending

on the vegetable. Veges to

plant in April include broad

beans, broccoli, cabbage, carrots,

cauliflower, lettuce (all types), onions,

peas, radish, spinach, swedes

and turnips. Always stagger your

plantings (every two to three

weeks) so that all of your vegetables

do not mature at the same

time and instead provide crops

throughout the season. If space

is an issue, many varieties can be

grown in pots or containers – just

be sure to use good quality potting

mix.

Flower garden

•Summer displays are almost

finished, so keep dead-heading

those blooms you wish to prolong.

Winter flowering annuals

brighten up even the dreariest of

winters. Start planting out now,

but ensure you prepare the soil

well beforehand, as per above.

Winter annuals include alyssum,

aquilegia, calendulas, cineraria,

cornflowers, lobelia, nemesia,

pansy, lupins (South Island) snapdragons,

status, stock, sweet peas,

sweet william and violas.

Bulbs

•Although main bulb planting

months are usually February and

March, it is still possible to plant

in early April, especially as garden

centres often have great deals to

clear stock. Bulbs grow best in

an open, sunny position in well

drained, fertile soil. Add compost

to lighten ‘heavy’ soil if this is an

issue. Plant bulbs in clusters for

a more pronounced flowering

effect. Remember to label where

you plant your new bulbs so that

you do not forget and accidentally

dig them up.

Roses

•The autumn display of many

roses can be quite spectacular

after the hot dry months of

summer. If you provide a little

TLC, some varieties like iceberg

will continue flowering through

till July in warmer areas of the

country. Remove any dead flowers

and fallen leaves as they will

no doubt contain black spot and

rust. Apply compost and a light

dressing of rose fertiliser around

your rose bushes to improve the

organic matter in the soil and

help suppress weeds which tend

to almost pop up overnight this

time of year.

Lovely lawns

April is a safe month for

sowing a new lawn or renovating/repairing

an existing one.

For new lawns, success relies on

thorough preparation. If bringing

new topsoil on to your property,

make sure it is good quality as

new weeds can be brought in with

imported topsoil. Ensure you new

lawn is well drained, considering

wet winter months. Check you

have the correct grass variety for

your site and if you are unsure,

talk to local experts at your garden

centre for advice. Sow seed

evenly and be prepared to oversow

in a few weeks’ time where

the germination of the grass seed

has been patchy.

•With existing lawns, apply

fertiliser now and water it thoroughly

after application. Mow

regularly to help develop a strong

thatch.

Winners “Over the Moon”

Chris and Lisa Burrowes could not have been more

deserving winners after being caught up in the collapse

of a major building company during their new home build

last year. “We have had to basically start again, and we

were not in a position to take a holiday although we really

wanted one. This could not have come at a better time,

said Chris”

We had an overwhelming response to the free trip to

celebrate the opening of our new premises said Jason.

We would like to thank all those customers who came and

supported our local business and wish Chris and Lisa and

their children all the best on their Gold Coast holiday.

Winter driving -

slow down

Driving a safe, well maintained car is

always in everyone’s best interest. With

so much talk about the road death toll

lately, doing everything you can to avoid

becoming one of those statistics just seems

to be common sense, even more so as

driving conditions are set to deteriorate.

There are a number of things you should

do to prepare your car for driving during

the colder months and inevitable rain, ice,

and snow.

Tyres are always important, and should

have adequate tread. The minimum legal

tread-depth is 1.5mm, but the deeper

the tread the better the grip and the safer

driving will be. Most tyres now have treaddepth

indicators moulded into the tread,

which makes it easy to recognise when

tread is at the minimum. Make sure the

tyre pressure is correct. Check your car’s

manual, or consult an expert. Don’t forget

about the spare.

If your battery is not up to scratch, you

won’t be going anywhere. Make sure the

terminals and cables are free of corrosion.

Battery checks are fairly simple at most

service providers. It can be beneficial to

carry jumper cables, but be aware that

you may not be able to use them on many

newer cars.

Specialists in Collision Repairs

From small dings to major repairs

Windscreen wipers are important when

it’s raining or snowing. They should clear

the screen, not just smear water around, in

which case the blades should be replaced.

SELWYN TIMES

There are a number of

things you should do

to prepare your car for

driving during the colder

months and inevitable

rain, ice, and snow.

Check the washer fluid level, and carry a

bottle of water in the boot.

Headlights, indicators and brake lights

should be checked and cleaned regularly.

Driving in the longer dark hours and in

stormy weather makes them even more

important. Check the bulbs are working,

replace broken ones, and clean all the light

covers.

There are many different anti-freeze

options, and it pays to make sure the fluid

mixture in the radiator is correct and the

level is topped up.

If your car has not had one in a while, a

full service is advisable. A WOF checks a

car’s roadworthiness, but it may not reveal

the wear on many parts that a full service

will. Even minor defects can be aggravated

by winter conditions. It’s annoying to break

down at the best of times; breaking down in

the pouring rain, or in snow, is doubly so.

If you are travelling long distances this

winter, it is advisable to carry an emergency

kit. Basic first aid products, extra blankets,

a torch and spare batteries, bottled water

and some non-perishable food items, a

waterproof jacket and warm hat, and a

knife or multi-tool. If you are stuck or lost

in bad weather, it is not an exaggeration to

say this kit could save your life.

Remember to drive to the conditions.

In winter weather, increase following

distances, brake earlier, and, especially

around corners, slow down.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Local panel beaters -

for all insurance claims

For over 30 years, Holland Collision

Centre has been panel beating and painting

all manner of vehicles in Selwyn and the

Christchurch area.

Almost everyone will need a panel beater

a few times or more, and, especially as the

weather gets colder, wetter, and conditions

more slippery at this time of year, it is

reassuring to have a highly qualified and

experienced service so close to home. The

team at Holland is exactly that.

The panel beaters at Holland Collision

Centre have I-CAR welding certificates.

I-CAR is an industry training organisation

comprising inter-industry representatives

from the collision repair, insurance, vehicle

manufacturing, tool supply, and vehicle

importer industries. This ensures quality

work, including not just smash repairs but

also structural repairs.

In addition, Holland Collision Centre

is a member of the Collision Repair

Association, another industry body

assuring customers that its members’ work

meets very high standards, and is backed

by a robust guarantee and disputes process.

By far the most complicated part of

having a smash repair done can be dealing

with insurance companies. Holland

Collision Centre owner Cameron Holland

says there is a lot of misinformation about

who can repair your car after an accident.

“Whenever you make a claim through your

insurance company, it is your choice who

you take your vehicle to for its repair and

paint work.”

Cameron and the team can do repair

work for all insurance companies and aim

to make the insurance claim process as

quick and hassle-free as possible. That way

you are back on the road quicker.

All kinds of smash repair and vehicle paint

work are available at Holland Collision

Centre, using the latest technologies, such

as eco-friendly waterborne paints, and

huge dedicated workshop spaces. No job

is too small or too big, from small dents

and fender bender repairs, to seriously

damaged fleet and heavy vehicles, trucks,

farm machinery, horse floats, caravans,

motor homes and more.

before

Other services include windscreen

replacement, chassis strengthening,

sandblasting, finishing, and airconditioning

re-gassing. Wheel alignment

and other mechanical work can be arranged

too.

Holland Collision Centre has been

part of the Rolleston and Selwyn

community for more than three decades,

providing high quality collision repairs

and supporting numerous local groups,

events and people. It is at 826 Jones

Road, Rolleston and can be contacted at

(03) 347-8703.

REAA - Understanding real estate jargon

Every industry is full of jargon and

buzzwords that make no sense to anyone

who’s not part of the club. Real estate is no

different, which means it can be hard to get

up to speed. Here’s a handy guide to some

of the most common terms you’ll come

across when buying or selling property.

Agency agreement: If you are using

a licensed real estate agent to sell your

property, you’ll need to sign one of these

agreements - it sets out what the agent will

do and what they will be paid. Remember

you can negotiate the conditions, such as

who pays for marketing and how much

the commission is. Make sure you get

legal advice before you sign, because it’s a

binding document.

BEO or BBO: This stands for ‘Buyer

Enquiry Over’ or ‘Buyer Budget Over’,

which means that price listed on the

advertisement indicates the minimum that

the seller will accept. The seller actually

needs to give serious consideration to any

offer over the BEO, so this figure needs to

be selected carefully.

Deadline Sale or Deadline Private

Treaty: In this kind of sale, a property

is marketed for a set period (with an

advertised end date). The seller can choose

to accept an offer at any stage during the

listing period though it may be stated

in the advertising that ‘no offer will be

accepted prior’. Check the fine print.

LIM: This stands for Land Information

Memorandum, which contains everything

that the local council knows about the

property, such as any issues with drainage

and plumbing, erosion or permits. It will

help you identify if any additions haven’t

got the right consent. A LIM will also

record any unpaid rates.

Sale and purchase agreement: This

is a legally binding contract between

the buyer and seller for the purchase/

sale of a property. It provides certainty

to both parties and it sets out in writing

all the agreed terms and conditions. It’s

essential to get legal advice before you

sign an agreement – and that you read and

understand what it means.

Settlement: This is the end goal in a

property transaction, when the sale and

purchase is completed by the exchange of

property and payment. Settlement occurs

when the seller receives the money for the

sale – the buyer will not receive the keys

until this happens.

RV: This stands for ‘Rateable Value’ – this

is a value used to calculate local body rates.

It should not be assumed to be a market

value for a property when it is for sale as

the rating valuation may be a number of

years old. It is also not responsive to local

market fluctuations and may not reflect

any recent renovations to a property. This

was formerly known as ‘Government

Value’, or GV.

Tender: If a property is for sale by

tender, prospective buyers must submit

confidential written offers by a set date.

Usually there is no minimum price, but

properties are often listed with a BEO or

BBO price. The seller can then choose the

offer that is most acceptable to them, based

on the price and any attached conditions.

The most attractive tender is likely to be

one that combines a good price with few

conditions. Sellers are allowed to negotiate

with any one or more of the tenderers

received after tenders close.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Kitchens

sell homes

It is arguably the most used area in the

house. Often, it is the first thing you see

when you enter your own house, a friend’s

house, or a show home. In recent years,

it has become the hub of most homes for

both family and guests. And let’s face it, it

is the repository of that most important of

commodities – food. Of course the kitchen

is a popular place.

There is an adage that claims kitchens

sell houses. For many people, compromise

on bedroom size, house layout, bathroom

design, or even the orientation of the

lounge may be acceptable. Kitchens,, when

buying a new home however, can be a deal

breaker. When building, the kitchen is a key

consideration in the design.

If you are selling, replacing the kitchen, or

at least giving it a serious facelift is a proven

way to increase the value of the house.

Open plan living is not a new concept. In

the modern era, however, architects such

as Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier

pioneered many facets of what is now

considered open plan, often using the

kitchen as the centralised space from which

a host could operate more intimately in

relation to the rest of the home, rather than

being secluded in a small room at the back

of the house.

These days, the return to open plan living

is complete, and the kitchen is still key. As

such, trends come and go regularly and

have become more personalised. White,

glossy finishes with splashes of colour are

still very popular, but a move towards raw,

organic materials such as stone and timber,

or metallic finishes is appearing. Mid tones

and earthy colours are now common. Black

is the new black, but bright accents are still

de rigueur.

Kitchens need to be functional, which is

a matter of personal choice. What works for

you? Appliances that make life easier are

easily integrated into kitchen spaces. Open

shelving, where everything is on hand, or

clutter hidden away in walk-in pantries?

Islands are ideal preparation surfaces and

gathering points. Bar stools make them

convenient places to sit with a coffee or

for children to do homework. Islands

are almost universal in modern kitchen

designs.

A lot of consideration and effort now

goes into those designs. The importance of

the social kitchen as the heart of the home

cannot be over-estimated. Often, the design

and functionality of the kitchen is the major

point of difference in homes being built and

sold.

Show homes are great ways for designers

and builders to showcase innovative

kitchens, and a fantastic opportunity for

buyers to see what they like, or don’t, and

to put together ideas for their ideal kitchen.

There are many show homes in Selwyn,

including those at Faringdon in Rolleston

as well as Te Whariki and Flemington in

Lincoln, and in many other subdivisions

and streets in the main centres.

If you are selling, replacing the

kitchen, or at least giving it a serious

facelift is a proven way to increase

the value of the house.

Key reasons

to buy new

Buying new has many advantages. No one has

yet lived in your brand new home and it has that

new home smell and feel.

That doesn’t appeal to the villa crowd.

But many people dream of a home in a

new suburb.

There are many other advantages -- such

as being able to customise the home before

it’s built. Buyers love it that their build

guarantee covers most things and there’s

little maintenance to do for the first 10

years.

There are a long list of reasons some

people dream of buying new.

They include:

• Current Building Code requirements

specify a higher standard of insulation

and glazing than you can expect in an

older home, which makes your new home

warmer in winter and cooler in summer,

meaning cheaper to run. In addition there

has been a vast improvement in the quality

and technology of construction materials

over the last decade.

• New homes are designed for modern

lifestyles with walk-in wardrobes, double

or triple car garaging, en suites and heat

pumps.

• Internal access garaging.

• Indoor-outdoor flow. Home builders

before the 1970s rarely thought about this.

• Automatic pool covers and electric

curtains are included in a lot of new

homes, he says.

• In a new subdivision you’re not going

to have five cross-leased small homes next

door to your architecturally designed fivebedroom

dream home, he says.

• New purpose-built shopping and

service centres cater for the modern life.

• New schools can be popular. New

schools are being designed with “Modern

Learning Environments”, which are

considered better layouts for 21st-century

learning.

Another important factor is it’s easier

to get a mortgage. New Reserve Bank of

New Zealand loan to value (LVR) ratio

restrictions from October 1 don’t relate

to new homes. Likewise the KiwiSaver

HomeStart grant is doubled for first time

buyers.

When it comes to new apartment

buildings they’re built to a higher standard

of earthquake/fire proofing and, hopefully,

are no longer leaky.

There are, of course, disadvantages to

buying new. Not everyone wants to wait

six or 12 months to move into their home.

Other downsides include:

• Borrowing to cover the progress

payments is more complex than taking out

a mortgage on an existing property.

• Builders and developers can go broke,

leaving the buyer in an awkward position.

• With some new homes the buyer

effectively needs to become a project

manager.

• You have to deal with council for

building and sometimes resource consent.

• The location may be further from the

centre than you wanted.

• If it’s infill housing you might have a

cross lease situation that some people find

tricky.

• There are often teething problems with

a new build.

• You won’t get a quaint tree-lined street.

• Your section will most likely be smaller

than that of an existing home.

• Fences, paths and landscaping might

need to be added at a cost.
