Maddie’s family open up on nine-year battle

West Melton teenager Maddie Collins has become a household name as her family tries to raise $750,000 to get

her to the United States for a kidney transplant. After dozens of operations, a failed transplant and her mother’s

breast cancer diagnosis, the 13-year-old’s family hasn’t given up hope of giving her a normal life. Bridget Rutherford

sat down exclusively with the family to tell their story.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

TEENAGER MADDIE Collins has

received a lot of publicity over the

past year or so as her family strives

to raise enough money which may

keep her alive.

But who is Maddie Collins and

her family?

Today (pages 8, 9, 10), Maddie

and her mum Sarah talk with

reporter Bridget Rutherford about

their journey. It is a compelling

read.

Life has all sorts of suprises and

for the Collins family that came in

late October, 2008.

Maddie woke up one morning

with puffy eyes. The family

thought it was an allergic reaction

to grass and hay.

Fast forward to 2017 and

13-year-old Maddie is fighting for

her life. What she had was a kidney

disease.

Her family has been fighting a

battle since. They deserve all of the

help they can get.

Police radar in on

drink drivers leading up to Xmas

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

and Andrew King

POLICE ARE preparing

to launch their Christmas

campaign to stop drink driving

in Selwyn.

The aim of the campaign is to

reduce the number of alcoholrelated

crashes in the district

by encouraging people to plan

a safe ride

home before

going out to

drink.

It comes

after a man

crashed a

vehicle near

Southbridge

Pete Stills

and recorded

more than

three times

the legal limit on Friday.

Emergency services were

called to the scene on Collins

Rd at about 9pm, but the driver

escaped major injuries.

Police said the tradesman had

been drinking “all afternoon” at

a hotel before heading towards

his home in Southbridge when

he crashed.

himself,” Senior Constable

Andy Williamson said.

Police allege the man recorded

more than 900 micrograms

of alcohol per litre. The legal

limit is 250mcg/L.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills

said police have been catching a

number of intoxicated drivers in

Rolleston and the wider Selwyn

area in the past few weeks.

Drivers had been caught driving

at about 800 and 1000mcg/L

Services available:

• Welding, metal fabrication

• Engineering repair

• Farm, factory and site work

Widely experienced, many years

of breath over the legal limit.

Senior Sergeant Stills said the

high alcohol readings blown by

drivers was really disappointing.

“We would rather not catch

anybody, we would rather get

the message out don’t drink and

drive,” he said.

last year and January nine

alcohol-related crashes were

recorded in the district.

Nine crashes were also recorded

in the district between

August and October this year.

The Christmas campaign will

be similar to previous years

with hotels and clubs throughout

Selwyn supporting it.

It encourages people to use

courtesy vans provided by hospitality

outlets and have a sober

driver organised.

Senior Sergeant Stills said it is

very important because people’s

lives are at stake.

Meanwhile, police are cracking

down on drivers not stopping

at stop signs again.

“We have been focusing on

Shands and Selwyn Rd again

because it has got bad there.

There is a high volume of traffic,”

Senior Sergeant Stills said.

He said while it is a problem

at all the intersections in Selwyn,

police are focusing on high

risk ones identified through

crash data.

THE HORORATA Highland

Games will be held on one

of the most important days

commemorated in modern

history – Armistice Day.

The games known as one of

the largest Scottish festivals

to take place in the Southern

Hemisphere will be held at the

Hororata Domain this Saturday.

Event manager Cindy Driscoll

said the Hororata Community

Trust felt strongly about acknowledging

Armistice Day.

She said a lot of people do not

know about its importance and

the games offer a good platform

for people to learn more about

it.

“In New Zealand we put a

lot of focus on Anzac Day and

the other significant events all

get wrapped into that,” Mrs

Driscoll said.

Armistice Day is commemorated

each year to mark the end

of World War 1.

After four years, the war came

to an end with the signing of

the armistice between Germany

and the Allied Powers on November

11, 1918.

On the eleventh hour of the

eleventh day of the eleventh

month, the guns fell silent.

The opening of the Hororata

Highland Games has been

brought forward with a remembrance

of the day to be held

before the chieftain’s welcoming

ceremony.

It is to be led by the Hororata-

heavy athletics and the Oceania

heavyweight championship.

Mrs Driscoll said pre-sales for

it aims to

get councils

to use the

report as they put together

their long term plans.

He said it is about

breaking down the

geographical boundaries

between councils.

THe report provides a

snapshot of facilities in

Canterbury including Nga

Puna Wai Sports Hub,

Christchurch Adventure

Park and Metro Sports

Facility.

THe multi-court sports

facility has been in the

pipeline since the release

of the 2013 masterplan for

Foster Park.

An area has been set

aside on the Broadlands

Drive end of Foster Park,

near the Selwyn Aquatic

Centre, for the new facility.

THe district council is

in the process of working

through court numbers,

design options and

estimates of capital and

operational cost.

THe district council’s

major projects property

manager John Reid said

there is no doubt Selwyn is

a high priority area lacking

multi-courts.

A feasibility study has

been taken over the past 18

months to determine what

sports groups need and

what they would pay for

hireage.

“We want this to be

community-focused

as opposed to high

performance,” Mr Reid said.

Mr Reid said high

performance facilities

come at a large

cost because of the

specifications needed to

host international sports.

It is planned the Metro

Sports Facility will

fulfil this need for the

Canterbury region.

“THe thing I am pushing

hard with council is we get

the maximum number of

courts,” Mr Reid said.

While it is confirmed

the facility will be built by

the district council it is yet

to confirm how it will be

operated.

IN HIGH DEMAND: Happy Minds Counselling is planning to set up a charitable

trust to provide free mental health services for youth in Selwyn.

Free youth mental

health service plan

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A SELWYN counselling practice is

planning to form a charitable trust to help

provide free mental health services for

youth in the district.

Happy Minds Counselling is in

the process of establishing a board of

representatives and funding for its new

trust, which will initially provide services

for youth.

The organisation’s owner and

counsellor, Matt Brown, said it

hopes to have its youth funding

secured by the end of this year.

“We have decided it is really

good if we could provide it for

nothing, that is the goal,” he

said.

It is applying to various

avenues of funding including

Government, community and

national funding.

The trust is to be known as the Brighter

Futures Charitable Trust.

It is planned people seeking the free

services would make an application to the

trust which would be considered by the

board.

But Mr Brown said it hopes to extend

its free mental health services to adults

within a year of its establishment.

It plans to have its application for

funding to support adults secured by

March-April.

The organisation currently subsidises

its counselling services for youth aged 13-

21 to $50 per session while adults are $80

per session.

The general rate for counselling sessions

is between $100-$120.

Mr Brown said the reason the cost is

high is because of resources, the lack of

employment roles available and the high

costs of becoming a counsellor.

Matt Brown

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you

think of mental health services

in Selwyn? Email your views to

georgia.oconnor@starmedia.kiwi

He said it is aiming for the board’s

trustees to represent a wide range of

people to help provide services for

different sectors in the community.

Mr Brown said anyone could get

involved – the trust eventually hopes to

provide a range of services including

supporting farmers, elderly, families

and the religious community.

“As long as you have a trust board

and trustees that are representatives

of your whole community, then you

can provide services for the whole

community,” he said.

On top of running Happy Minds,

Mr Brown counsels at Rolleston

College.

He said children will often go from

having counselling services wrapped

around them at school into the

community where there is a deficiency.

The counselling services he runs

outside of Rolleston College book up fast

and are attended by 70 per cent youth and

30 per cent adults.

Mr Brown said it is often the people

who cannot afford counselling services

who slip through the cracks.

While the new trust will initially cater

for Selwyn it will look to expand in the

future.

Mr Brown said there has always been

a huge cry for mental health services in

Selwyn and it was the reason he set up

Happy Minds.

The Maddie story

SELWYN TIMES

Pages 8, 9 & 10

Family’s long journey to give their

It has been nearly nine years since West Melton

teenager Maddie Collins was diagnosed with kidney

disease. Bridget Rutherford reports on the battle to

give the 13-year-old a better life before it is too late

IT WAS a normal day at the end

of October 2008 and the Collins

family was preparing to go

camping at Okains Bay.

But five-year-old Maddie woke

up that morning with puffy eyes.

Her parents Sarah and Adam

didn’t think anything of it.

They had just moved to West

Melton from Spreydon, wanting

a more rural lifestyle.

“We thought ‘great, we’ve just

moved rural and she’s allergic to

grass and hay’,” Mrs Manson-

Collins said.

UNWELL: Maddie Collins in

hospital as a child.

They took Maddie to their GP,

who said she may have something

called nephrotic syndrome

– a kidney disease which causes

the body to excrete too much

protein in urine.

“I just said ‘oh, don’t be silly,

just give us some antihistamines,

we’re going camping tomorrow’.

And he said ‘I’m very serious,

you need to take her to the hospital

now’.”

The family didn’t go camping.

And they haven’t been since.

Since then, the 13-year-old has

undergone more than 50 operations,

been on life support twice,

had both kidneys removed, one

failed transplant and undergoes

dialysis every night.

She has been in hospital more

than 300 times – the longest

stint was for four months – and

travels to Auckland’s Starship

Hospital routinely every seven or

eight weeks.

“I do dialysis 12 hours a night,

every night,” Maddie said.

“When we go away we don’t

typically take the machine, so we

do manual bags – four over the

day. It’s annoying because you

can’t have sleepovers, unless you

want to do manual bags, but I’m

not allowed to do it.”

Maddie’s parents and a family

friend are the only people who

can operate her dialysis machine.

They have two generators just in

case there is a power cut.

The first time Maddie was put

on life support was six months

after her diagnosis.

She had been on steroids and

low-dose chemotherapy drugs,

then one night, she woke with a

sore tummy and they took her to

hospital.

plucky daughter a better life

She had spontaneous bacterial

peritonitis, where all the fluid

around her organs had become

infected.

After a week in the high

dependency unit, Maddie was

transferred to the ward.

Things were looking up

and Mrs Manson-Collins was

sent home to get some sleep at

8.30pm.

At 11pm, the hospital rang to

say they had transferred Maddie

back to HDU, but said there was

nothing to worry about. Then, at

5.30am, the hospital called again.

“They said ‘Sarah get here now,

don’t get a coffee, don’t have a

shower, just get in the car and get

here now’.”

The infected fluid had

overflowed into Maddie’s lungs.

The five-year-old was gasping

for breath and transferred to the

intensive care unit where she

was put on life support. She was

transferred to Starship where she

stayed on life support for a week.

In spite of the set back,

the family and doctors were

optimistic they could save her

kidneys.

But in December 2009, Maddie

needed a port inserted in her

chest so medication could be

injected easily.

FAMILY: Maddie with her mum Sarah, older sister Georgia and dogs Mary and Jilly.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

“I went into recovery to find

them resuscitating her,” Mrs

Manson-Collins said.

She was put back on life

support and her kidneys could

not be saved. Six months later,

six-year-old Maddie had her first

kidney removed.

They started the process of

getting on the organ donor list.

Both Mr Collins and Mrs

Manson-Collins were tested

to see if they were matches,

prompting another devastating

blow for the family 10 days out

from Christmas 2009.

Mrs Manson-Collins had to do

a routine mammogram as part

of the process, which discovered

she had breast cancer.

“I said to her ‘have you found

something’. And she said ‘did

you come by yourself?’ And I

said ‘did you find something?’

She said ‘yes, you’ve got cancer

and it’s really bad.’”

Within seven months,

Mrs Manson-Collins had a

mastectomy and chemotherapy,

and Mr Collins donated one of

his kidneys to Maddie.

“It was pretty rough on our

older two children – is mum

going to die this year from

cancer? Is my sister going to die

this year with renal failure?”

She said it was hard to juggle

treatments, but Maddie’s health

came first.

Although Mrs Manson-

Collins has been cleared of

cancer, she still has regular

oncology appointments.

At nine, Maddie finally started

school at St Margaret’s College.

But they began to see signs

that Maddie’s body was rejecting

her father’s kidney. She became

very unwell and they had to

remove it.

The Maddie story

•From page 9

Now, she is solely reliant on the

white dialysis machine that sits

next to her bed.

“There has been some really

scary moments where we think,

‘wow, is she going to come out of

it this time? Are we nearing the

end?’ We’re pretty open about

dying and death and Maddie’s

fully aware of those implications,

and that is a reality for us,” Mrs

Manson-Collins said.

Maddie said she did not like

to think about death. But sometimes

she had to.

When she first had her antibodies

tested, there was a two

per cent chance of matching

anyone in New Zealand.

“We realised we wanted more

for Maddie, we wanted life. Just

to sit here and wait for a kidney

is not okay for a child, dialysis

isn’t great for a child, it isn’t great

for an adult.”

They started looking for

alternative and visited The John

Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore,

United States, which has been

looking at new kinds of transplants.

But it will cost $750,000. They

have raised just under $300,000.

Maddie’s siblings Tomas, 21,

and Georgia, 19, do not match,

but they could take part in a

“paired exchange” where they

donate a kidney and Maddie can

get an American one.

Mrs Manson-Collins said they

were “blown away” with the support

they had received.

“As much as it’s about fundraising

for Maddie, it’s also

about raising awareness of a lack

of organ donation here in New

Zealand and what we can do to

improve that system.”

Maddie’s condition has taken a

toll on the family.

Mrs Manson-Collins gave up

her job as a logistics manager for

a national and international race

open about dying

and death and

implications, and

that is a reality

diagnosis.

Mr Collins was a race car

engineer for Toyota Racing

Series and Formula 5000, but has

stopped working.

“It’s got to the point now we’re

just both so exhausted because

it’s been going so long. It takes

two of us to keep on top of everything,”

Mrs Manson-Collins

said.

“Financially, it’s taken a huge

toll. Before Maddie was diagnosed,

we were both working, we

had a retirement fund and retirement

plans. That’s all gone now.”

She said Georgia, who works at

footwear retailer Hannahs while

she decides what to study, and

Tomas, an electrician apprentice,

had been “amazing” and were

very protective of their sister.

of Southern Health School and

St Margaret’s teaching for the

She wants to become a vet and

has already been helping out at

her local clinic.

“We went to the vet to get my

in I thought ‘I really want to

Although riding may come

with some risks, her parents

who are unfortunate to have this

Young directors making their mark

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

WEST MELTON’S Nina Hogg

could soon be following in the

footsteps of Kiwi director Taika

Waititi.

While Waititi has been

smashing box offices records

with his new movie Thor:

Ragnarok, Nina and Simon

Brown have created the short

film A Perfect Child.

The St Margaret’s and Christ’s

college students won the award

for best senior fiction at the

Australian Teachers of Media

Awards in Melbourne.

It tells the story of Ava, played

by St Margaret’s student Tigerlily

Perry, a girl who has lost her parents

in a car crash and has been

sent to an orphanage.

She meets Madam Murphy

(Eilish Moran, of The Court

Theatre) who runs the establishment

in a disciplined and firm

manner. Ava soon befriends

Lauren (Alice Taylor, of St Margaret’s),

but finds out that things

are not what they seem at the

orphanage.

When Lauren suddenly turns

on her, Ava discovers a laboratory

full of clones which the

orphanage is trying to make into

perfect specimens so they can be

adopted more easily.

UP-AND-COMING: Students Simon Brown and Nina Hogg

collected the award for best senior short film in Melbourne.

Taking home an award didn’t

come easily.

The 18min film took a year to

produce from start to finish and

involved more than 65 students,

mentors and teachers.

Simon said the main challenge

came from the editing process.

A Perfect Child went up against

550 entries in the ATOM awards

from across Australia and New

Zealand.

“The prize-giving was very

nerve-racking, especially when

Nina and I had to go up on stage

to collect the award. We didn’t

realise that we were required to

give a short speech and had to

improvise but it was taken very

well, which was a relief,” Simon

said.

Nina said many students put

their life and soul into the film.

“I hope our two schools (St

Margaret’s and Christ’s) continue

this collaboration as a way

to foster interest in the film industry

and highlight the talent of

our friends and fellow students,”

she said.

The ATOM presentation

was hosted by Australian TV

presenter Walt Collins and was

followed by a screening of the

winning productions at the SAE

Institute, Melbourne. The awards

Fire rages, homes at risk

Explosion of colour from Rolleston

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

AN EXPLOSION of colour

could be seen across Rolleston

skies in celebration of Guy

Fawkes on Saturday.

The Rolleston Fireworks display

has been deemed a success

with more than 15,000 attending

the show.

It was the second year the

event had been held at Foster

Park instead of Rolleston Reserve.

The event cost about $70,000

to put on with $30,000 of fireworks

set off.

Rolleston fireworks organising

committee member Jens Christensen

said the event was touch

and go at one stage because of

the wind.

“It was absolutely howling

down for a while. Then when

the fireworks went off it was as

still as anything,” he said.

Mr Christensen said schools

and community groups running

fundraisers at the event were

happy with how the evening

went but it was too early to estimate

how much was raised.

Rolleston chief fire officer Nigel

Lilley said the weekend was

pretty quiet and people were

genuinely careful.

Making the most of Mandarin

A LINCOLN High School

student has taken part in

an international competition.

Year 12 student Taylin

China, recently competing

in the 10th World Chinese

Speech Competitions.

It comes after she won

Competition earlier this

year with her prize being

a trip to China to compete

along with her teacher

Terina Yee.

The international competition

involves about 320

students and teachers from

96 countries.

Contestants are required

to sit a computer-written

test on aspects of China.

Other activities include

testing students on their

listening skills and having

to perform two short

speeches individually

before taking part in a talent

show.

The school’s head of

A reader responds to

Selwyn Times article

on issues the Darfield

population faces as it

continues to expand

Grant Prescott –My

main concern here is if the

district council decides to

implement such a system

how will they manage

payment. You surely cannot

include it as a straight

increase in rates across the

board as a lot of properties

would not get access

to the system outside of

the township. It would be

inappropriate for non-users

to be hit with the rate. We

have had a large number of

developers secure significant

profit over the years

and the district council

should have been charging

a cost to these developers

with a view to starting a

reticulated system which

would offset costs. Lack

of planning by the district

council seems to be the

problem.

A reader responds to

Selwyn Times’ article

on the district council’s

annual report for

the 2016/17 year

Will Janssen – Yes,

the report thus far sounds

good. Perhaps the district

council could open its

wallet and add some much

needed additions to the

Selwyn Aquatic Centre?

Namely a sauna room

and steam room. Both

Jellie Park Recreation and

Sports Centre and Pioneer

Stadium have these and

both are a 55km return

trip from central Rolleston.

Both venues are always

well- used so I’m sure the

same would occur here.

With all the sports fields

and activities in the area,

a place to assist the body

would benefit the

overall district.

Milligan takes two podiums

in opening Toyota 86 round

• By Gordon Findlater

PREBBLETON’S JACK Milligan

experienced a mixed bag of

results in the opening round of

the Toyota 86 Championship at

Pukekohe over the weekend.

Milligan, 21, will go into the

next round of the championship

in second after a win and a

podium finish in his three races.

“It’s a good start to the

championship. It’s a long

season so we’re happy to come

away in second and some good

championship points,” said

Milligan.

Fellow Prebbleton racer Jaden

Ransley was looking good in race

one when he moved into the lead

on lap 10 before dropping back to

second. He then made a mistake

through turn one and slid into

the outside wall.

Ransley finished seventh in

races two and three.

Milligan got his campaign off

to the perfect start in race one on

Saturday. The apprentice builder

was in third when he pulled off

a great passing manoeuvre to

take the lead in the space of one

corner.

“It happened pretty quickly.

The two guys in front of me

were battling and I could sense

something was going to happen,”

said Milligan.

He went on to win race one

PERFECT START: Jack Milligan (inset) won the opening race of

ahead of Auckland’s Connor

Adam and Christchurch’s Tom

Alexander.

In race two, Mulligan started

from eighth on the grid but

moved up to third by turn two.

He moved to second and sat on

the tail of defending champion

Alexander for the remainder of

the race. In the final race of the

weekend, Milligan was in second

behind Alexander before he went

around the outside of the leader

at the end of the back straight.

However, Alexander held his

line and Milligan slid onto the

grass. Trying to regain the places

he had lost, Milligan slid wide

again in the same spot, re-joining

the race sideways and nudging

Michael Scott off the circuit.

He eventually finished the

race in eighth. Round two of the

championship will see Milligan

and Ransley head to Taupo in

early December.

FOR THE second year running,

Hororata club’s Dominic

Brettkelly was eliminated from

the New Zealand amateur

golf championship by the

tournament winner.

On Friday, Brettkelly, 17, went

into the 18th hole at Russley

one up in his round of 16 match

with championship favourite

and eventual winner, Daniel

Hillier, of Wellington.

On the 18th, Hillier chipped

in for an eagle, taking the match

to a playoff. He then claimed

victory with a birdie on the 19th

hole of the match.

“I knew I was a massive

underdog, but I didn’t feel any

pressure. I knew if I could get

under his skin and put some

pressure on then I’d be a decent

chance,” said Brettkelly.

On the first two days of the

championship, Brettkelly shot

rounds of 74 and 71 to be in a tie

for 18th, qualifying him for the

top 32 which progressed to the

match play elimination section

of the championship.

UNDER WAY: Runners in the half marathon event make their way

out of Leeston as the race starts.

HEAD OF FIELD: Oska Baynes won the 10km event, Samuel Wreford defended his title in the

half marathon and Sean Eustace came home in a time of 1hr 11mins 18secs to finish second.

Records fall at Selwyn Running Festival

• By Gordon Findlater

A NUMBER of records fell in

Leeston at the weekend as nearly

400 runners and walkers took

part in the Selwyn Running

Festival.

The event, now in its seventh

year, consisted of a half

marathon, 10km, 5km and kids

dash events.

The blistering sun and

high winds didn’t slow the

competition down, as records

fell in both the men’s and

women’s half marathon, as

well as the men’s and women’s

10km races. The festival

attracted a large number of

locals and some top runners

from around Canterbury

with the event doubling as

the Canterbury Athletics half

marathon championship.

“The pointy end of the race

is usually well represented by

those top runners. The event

also really connects with our

local runners, especially with

the shorter races and the kids

dash. It’s really great to have all

the local schools involved,” said

event organiser Michael Wilson.

The men’s half marathon

title was defended by Timaru’s

Samuel Wreford in a race record

time of 1hr 7min 50sec.

He finished ahead of Sean

Eustace and Lincoln’s Ieuan van

der Peet.

The race record in the women’s

half marathon was broken by

Christchurch’s Angela Whyte,

who finishing in a time of 1hr

Oska Baynes (30min

Calling all 10-year olds!

Do you know a budding young entrepreneur who wants to give back

to their community and learn more about managing money?

We want to give 10-year olds a chance to deliver on their ideas by

seeding $10 into a project. They get to keep the profit they make

and Mayor Sam Broughton will match what they make (up to $100)

and donate it to a local charity.

If you know a 10-year old who would like to enter, they can

write their proposal of up to 100 words and email it to

10ten10@selwyn.govt.nz. Mayor Broughton will be choosing the 10

winning 10-year olds on Friday 10 November. They will receive the

$10 the following week and have until Friday 8 December to put

their project into action and try to make a profit.

Halloween

in Selwyn

Last week Selwyn facilities hosted some Halloween events for families to enjoy the spooky season.

Seventy children and their parents dressed up for the Halloween Disco at Lincoln Event Centre.

The children got involved in plenty of games including find the skeleton, limbo and wrap the

mummy. The disco was a safe opportunity for families to dress up and enjoy Halloween without

the hassle of going door knocking. Feedback was hugely positive with children saying ‘this is the

best disco ever’.

Halloween Spooktacular went down a treat at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre. Children arrived

dressed up in creepy Halloween costumes for photos and festivities before enjoying a party at

the pool afterwards. This was a fun, safe option for families to celebrate Halloween. The colouring

in competition and decorations made for an exciting week at the Aquatic Centre with plenty of

children getting involved.

Council marks 10 years in Rolleston headquarters

This month the Council marked the 10th anniversary of the opening of its Rolleston headquarters.

The building, on Norman Kirk Drive, was officially opened in September 2007 by then Governor-

General, Rt Hon Sir Anand Satyanand, with staff moving into the premises in November 2007.

The 3,000 square metre complex was designed by architect Ian Athfield and comprises four linked

blocks plus a Council chamber surrounded by ample carparking and landscaped grounds. Armitage

Williams Ltd was the main contractor for the project.

Council Chief Executive David Ward says it was a long journey to get to the new premises. When the

Council was formed in 1989, Selwyn was the only council in New Zealand that did not have the location

of its head office specified by the government.

“That meant that from 1989 to 2007 the Council occupied a series of buildings in Leeston, Hornby and

Darfield,” Mr Ward says. “As the district’s population started to grow, it became increasingly difficult for

residents to engage with the Council across two sites, and equally for staff to operate effectively over

the two locations.

“It was decided the logical solution was to relocate on to one site. Discussions started in January 2004

involving councillors, staff and the community, eventually settling on the Rolleston location.”

The building makes extensive use of natural timber and stone both inside and out, reflecting the

Selwyn landscape.

It features a number of environmental features that were innovative at the time, including thermal mass

flooring and exposed internal walls for temperature control, sensor-activated low-energy lighting,

absorbant ceiling to reduce noise, reflective roof surface and large overhang to reduce solar gain,

rainwater collected to supply toilet cisterns, and wide eaves to control glare from winter sun.

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads this week

Reseals will be carried out on Voss Road,

Osborns Road, Hodgens Road and Lincoln

Tai Tapu Road. Trimming of high shoulders will

be occurring at Ridge Road. Ford repair and

drainage works will be carried out on Flagpole

Road. Traffic controls will be operating.

Stabilised seal repairs are occurring on Springston Rolleston Road,

Shands Road, Dunns Crossing Road and Weedons Road. Digout

repairs will be carried out on Curve Road. Please stop on request at

these sites.

Footpath works will be occurring on Heathridge Place walkway and

Petticoat Lane, these footpaths will be closed during these works.

Kerb and channel works, footpath and kea crossing construction

will be occurring on Weedons Ross Road in West Melton. Traffic

delays and minor detours may be in place during the construction

period. Access to the local shopping centre, pre-school and primary

school will be available at all times. These works are expected to

last until early December.

Work has begun on the West Melton School kea crossing.

A number of Council staff who moved into the building in November 2007 are still working in the facility 10 years later, and some of

these gathered on site last week to mark the anniversary.

Pumpkin growing competition

The Selwyn Waihora Water Zone Committee and Mayor Sam

Broughton are wanting to generate discussion about the water and

nutrients required to make things grow. $500 is being offered to the

school which grows the largest pumpkin, and $500 to the school

whose student presents the best A3 poster about water and nutrient

management for growing the pumpkin.

Three pumpkins have been propagated for each school. The

posters will need to be completed in term one, 2018 and sent to us

by the end of the term for judging. To enter the pumpkin growing

competition please contact bernadette.ryan@selwyn.govt.nz to

A library of the future

What’s your future library and community centre

like? What do you want to do there?

All over the world, libraries are transforming from their

traditional focus on books and lending into community spaces

that provide resources, technology and activities to encourage

people to learn, participate and feel connected.

Today’s libraries are ‘community living rooms’ – busy and

dynamic places that are relevant to all sectors of society and

offer spaces to meet, exchange ideas, play, relax, create, be

entertained …

An indicative artist’s impression showing part of the future library and

community centre (at left) and town centre, as seen from Tennyson Street.

Rolleston Library & Community Centre

Ideas sought for new facility

Development of an exciting new library and

community facility for Rolleston and the wider

Selwyn district is set to start in 2018 – and the

Council is looking for ideas on how people might

want to use the new spaces.

The new Library and Community Centre is a key

project in the Rolleston town centre development,

and will be located on what is currently part of

Rolleston Reserve, near Tennyson Street.

The new facility will replace the existing library, which

is now too small for Rolleston’s growing population –

and will also provide a flexible, multi-use space for a

wide range of community purposes.

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says community

spaces and libraries are changing. “We want

our new facility to be a place of learning, idea

sharing, culture and exploration.

“The new facility will include a library but will

be about more than just books. It will also offer

flexible multi-purpose spaces for activities and

exhibitions, performances, learning programmes

and music. We want our community to have a

place to meet, reflect and be entertained.

“We will design and build the facility on the basis

that it meets the needs of Selwyn residents so

this is your chance to tell us what you think. The

time to tell us is now.

Rolleston town centre master plan

A master plan for Rolleston town centre was adopted by the Council in 2014 after an extensive community

consultation and planning process.

The plan sets out a vision for a town centre that will be a vibrant and engaging destination for Rolleston,

Selwyn Central ward and the wider Selwyn district.

The Library and Community Centre will be the first building developed on the site, located on part of the

current Rolleston Reserve, and will set the standard for later elements including:

· reserve, open spaces and playgrounds

· town square and civic space

· indoor/outdoor dining and hospitality

“We’re encouraging people to do some timetravel,

if you like – and think about what a future

community space and library might be like, and

how they would use it,” Mayor Broughton

Ideas generated through this community

feedback will be used by the design team for

the facility, to develop spaces and concepts that

reflect innovation and opportunity.

Initial design

concepts for the

library and community

centre will be

prepared during the

first half of 2018, and

residents will have

further opportunities

to comment on

the options for the

facility as the project

develops.

The Council will be providing opportunities for

people to provide their ideas and feedback

through online surveys, as well as at community

events over the next month.

Selwyn District Libraries will also be seeking

ideas from existing library users, with two or three

sessions planned each week through November.

· retail and entertainment areas

· pedestrian-friendly streets and spaces

Since the plan was adopted, a number of steps have been completed to progress the development,

including roading projects such as the Tennyson/Kidman roundabout, the development of Foster Park,

adoption of the Land Use Recovery Plan designating the town centre as a key activity area, and the

Lincoln all

out for 39

LEESTON-Southbridge have

maintained their lead in the

Canterbury Country Cricket

one-day competition by

ruthlessly dispatching Lincoln on

Saturday.

The match at Lincoln Domain

was over in a few hours after

Lincoln were rolled for just

39 in the 22nd over. Leeston-

Southbridge then reached the

total with eight wickets in hand

in the 16th over.

Cameron Norton and Dougald

Munro were the main destroyers

for Leeston-Southbridge, bagging

three wickets each as Lincoln

gave away some soft dismissals.

The competition’s top runscorer,

Jeremy Benton, was out

to a low diving catch by Liam

O’Sullivan off the bowling of

Norton.

No Lincoln player scored more

than eight runs and their innings

included four ducks.

In the weekend’s other results,

Weedons demolished Darfield-

South Malvern by 161 runs at

Darfield Domain.

Batting first, the visitor’s

racked up 216/8 in their allotted

45 overs. Shanon Dunnett led the

way by smashing an unbeaten 47

off 36 balls.

Weedons’ opening pace bowler,

Sandeep Singh, ripped through

Darfield-South Malvern’s

batsmen, taking six wickets as

the home team capitulated to be

all out for 55 inside 17 overs.

Sefton captain Andrew Laffey

led his team to victory over

Southbrook at Sefton Domain.

Batting first, the Sefton Seals

were in trouble at 111/9.

But Laffey and Barry Cross

knuckled down to produce an

outstanding partnership which

took Sefton to 149 in the last

available over.

Laffey then turned the

screws with his left-arm spin as

Southbrook were strangled in

their run chase. Southbrook were

all out for 104 to lose by 45 runs.

Round five results:

•Sefton 149 (A Laffey 33,

T Harrison 31, B Cross 19no;

The Mockers return to Lincoln for festival

• By Julia Evans

SELWYN SOUNDS is going to

be a sort of homecoming for The

Mockers.

Lead singer Andrew Fagan

said it’s “quite humorous” thinking

about playing in the district

where the band’s career started.

The day-long music festival

at Lincoln Domain on March

3 follows this year’s inaugural

event, which saw the Jordan

Luck Band, Mi-Sex, Dragon and

various Kiwi heavyweights play

in front of a crowd of about 8000.

“The Mockers had some of

their first gigs at Lincoln University,”

Fagan said, fondly remembering

some of the “drunk

agricultural students” during

orientation weeks in the early

80s.

The band, which was based in

Wellington at the time, would

pile onto the Interislander ferry

with all kinds of musical equipment

in tow then get onto a train

bound for a night at Lincoln’s

“big, huge uni hall”.

“We did some really, really

long sets. We used to play the

same set three times in a row.

No one noticed – they were just

enjoying the live music and were

probably too drunk.”

But he said they wouldn’t be

playing the same set three times

in a row in March.

“It’ll still be riotous.”

Touring small towns holds a

special place in Fagan’s heart.

He said, looking back now, he

never appreciated it as much as

he should have.

“I really miss that kind of

thing. As a band, we did so much

touring. Over and over and over.

There weren’t a lot of bands

doing that extensive amount of

touring to small towns,” Fagan

said.

FESTIVAL: The Mockers

played many of their early

gigs at Lincoln University in

the 1980s and will return for

Selwyn Sounds on March 3 at

the Lincoln Domain.

From playing in tiny Blenheim

pubs to a massive, empty Gore

hall, no town was left out.

“It was even better when we

started to become reasonably

popular and people knew the

material before we started playing,”

he said.

He’s looking forward to recreating

that in Lincoln with The

Mockers original 1985 line-up of

Brett Adams, Geoff Hayden and

Tim Wedde.

“It’ll be great playing with a lot

of other bands from that period,”

he said. This year’s nine-act bill

will include Jimmy Barnes, Stellar

and The Feelers.

“I can’t wait to see if Barnsey

can still hold those long, high

notes in Working Class Man.”

In the meantime, Fagan, who

is now based in Auckland, is

working on material with his

other band Fagan and the People,

which he’ll be recording at

the end of the year.

SELWYN TIMES

On the 21st of November, twenty five highland

dancers from the Julie Hawke School of Dance &

Lynette Mitchell School of Dance in Dunedin, will

travel to France to perform at The International

Gathering of Highland Dance at Disneyland Paris.

Now in its seventh year, The International

Gathering of Scottish Highland Dance has grown

into a world renowned event, with over 1000

visitors over the four days each year.

The dancers will meet up with highland dancers

from all around the world to compete in a 4 day

competition, showcasing their highland dance

skills on the international stage and also joining

their fellow dancers in the Special Main Street

Parade throughout Disneyland.

This fantastic opportunity is being offered to Julie

and Lynette’s students as both teachers believe

that competing on the world stage will give

their dance students an amazing, unforgetable

experience and will help develop their dancing

even further.

The entire tour group including parents,

grandparents and the dancers themselves have

undertaken several fundraising projects over

the last 12 months to raise the required fund to

provide each dancer with flights, accommodation,

team tracksuits, stage costumes and a named

‘Carry on bag” for each dancer. The group have

also secured wonderful sponsorship and from

many businesses and would like to thank them

immensely for their support.

Both teachers, with the help of Lana Donaldson,

Nadine Terry & Ruby Wills have really enjoyed

the challenge of choreographing many ‘Disney

themed’ solo’s, duo’s & group dances,with the

added challenge of many rules covering theme of

music and time restrictions. The dancers can’t wait

to perform ‘Moana’. This dance is a combination of

traditional Highland steps and also incorporates

traditional Maori dance. This dance will be a

superb performance to showcase our NZ heritage

brilliantly.

Cultural values explained

SELWYN FARMERS have taken

the chance to find out more

about their new responsibilities

around mahinga kai and how

those may affect their farming

practices.

Environment Canterbury

held the second of two on-farm

“shed talks” recently, on a Dunsandel

dairy farm, to explain

how provisions in the Selwyn Te

Waihora Water Plan to protect

traditional Ngāi Tahu food

sources and cultural values will

affect them.

The shed talks were held on

properties where farmers have

already undertaken significant

work to protect waterways and

good management practice is

minimising environmental

impacts.

Contract milker Brendon

Glassford said the previous

owners of his farm planted most

of the length of the stream that

flows through the farm.

“We want to be compliant, we

don’t want to wreck the Selwyn

River (Waikirikiri). We have to

look after the land – you want

to leave it better than when you

took over,” he said.

The shed talks were lead by

Environment Canterbury cultural

land management adviser

Mananui Ramsden.

He believes most farmers, like

LEARNING CULTURE: Environment Canterbury cultural land

management adviser Mananui Ramsden. ​

Ngāi Tahu, embrace their role

as guardians of the resources on

their land.

“People think Environment

Canterbury have a stick and we

swing it, but really, the Selwyn-

Waihora zone delivery team,

we work with you. We’re here to

help you get your heads around

the funding, potential restoration

projects and to help with

these land use consents,” Mr

Ramsden said.

“You can never say it’s too

hard because you’ve always got

support,” Mr Glassford said.

He said there is ECan,

DairyNZ and others to call on to

help out if unsure about the environment

and the regulations.

More shed talks are likely to

be held in the New Year to help

bring more farmers up to speed

with mahinga kai.

Reducing nitrogen

through genetics

MAKING IMPROVEMENTS: Leeston dairy farmer

John Tanner is working on reducing nitrogen output

on his farm.

LEESTON DAIRY farmer

John Tanner has been

working hard to improve

sustainability on his farm,

Dunlac Dairies Ltd.

The farm is located in the

Selwyn Waihora catchment

and is 20km from Lake

Ellesmere/Te Waihora,

which is considered one

of New Zealand’s most

important wetland areas.

On either side of the

catchment are the Rakaia

River and the Selwyn River.

“In Canterbury we have

to lessen our nitrogen

footprint on the farm,” Mr

Tanner said.

He milks 730 dairy cows

during the peak of the

season on 260ha.

“In our catchment, we

farm on environmentally

sensitive land,” he said.

Mr Tanner is one of

many farmers turning to

genetic solutions to help

him farm well.

In recent years Lake

Ellesmere/Te Waihora has

been plagued by water

quality issues related to

intensive farming practices.

Nitrogen leached from

farms on the Canterbury

Plains will eventually make

its way into the lake therefore

farm activities in the

catchment are regulated by

Environment Canterbury,

with set nitrogen limits per

farm.

The Canterbury Water

Management Strategy,

introduced in 2012, aims to

rejuvenate and restore the

ecosystem of the Selwyn

Waihora catchment.

It requires dairy farms

in the catchment to reduce

their property’s nitrogen

limits by 30 per cent by

2022.

Mr Tanner is making

an effort to reduce Dunlac

Dairies’ environment

impact, and has made

significant improvements

with water management

and fertiliser usage.

The farm was a finalist

in the Dairy Business of

the Year 2016, and Tanner

takes pride in doing his bit

for the environment.

However, like many

farmers in the region, he is

feeling the pressure.

“We are trying to milk at

our current numbers, but

lessen our nitrogen footprint.

So you are trying to

do the same, but with less

environmental impact,” Mr

Tanner said.

He believes science will

offer a solution for farmers.

When he heard about

CRV Ambreed’s genetic

discovery, and its LowN

Sires bull team, Mr Tanner

was very interested,

purchasing more than 200

straws.

In March, CRV Ambreed

announced a genetic

discovery, thought to be a

world-first, which could

reduce nitrogen leaching

on New Zealand farms by

20 per cent within 20 years.

CRV Ambreed identified

and selected bulls genetically

superior for a new

trait related to the amount

of urea nitrogen in milk.

Farmers are now able to

breed cows using straws of

semen from CRV Ambreed’s

LowN Sires, and

those daughters will have

reduced concentration of

milk urea nitrogen.

Cows bred for lower

levels of MUN are expected

to excrete less nitrogen in

their urine which will, in

turn, reduce the amount

of nitrogen leached from

grazed pasture.

This could potentially

save New Zealand 10 million

kg in nitrogen leaching

a year, based on the

national herd number of

6.5 million dairy cattle.

“When CRV Ambreed

came up with their LowN

bulls, we thought ‘we’ll

have a go.’”

“We have 730 cows and if

we can lessen the nitrogen

from the herd by 20 per

cent, then that makes a big

dent,” Mr Tanner said.

He is interested to see

how his herd’s genetics will

improve over time.

“I know it’s going to take

a few years, but if it’s something

that does improve

nitrogen leaching from my

cows, I will probably buy

more straws in the future,”

he said.

Tanner was also pleased

with the other traits.

“We wanted the best in

genetics, and CRV offered

that,” Mr Tanner said.

Canterbury regional

councillor John Sunckell

was also a big fan of CRV

Ambreed’s LowN Sires

programme.

Mr Sunckell is a thirdgeneration

farmer from

Leeston.

“Technology and information

is vital; that’s why

I’m so excited about (CRV

Ambreed R&D scientist)

Phil Beatson’s work and

CRV’s work,” said Mr

Sunckell.

Mr Sunckell said dairy

farmers in his catchment

are required to reduce their

nitrogen loss by 30 “which

equates to getting rid of

every third cow.”

Casual Summer Dressing

The sun is out at last and with the warmer

weather comes the inevitable

question – what shall i wear?

There is plenty of casual everyday

wear on offer now and no one does

it better than the Australian label Elm.

They offer well made, well priced, stylish

casual wear and their fit is relaxed and

on the generous side, so Elm is a great

label to start with.

We have pictured the Elm Harmonise cotton blend

long cardigan in stunning block colours ($149.95).

This is an easy casual garment to throw on over

jeans or the new 7/8th pants length which is

prevalent this season. This length of pant has

come into vogue over the ¾ length as it is

more flattering to most women giving the legs

a more streamlined silhouette.

Also by Elm are the ever popular Amalfi pants

in navy & white stripes ($79.95).

These pants are ultra comfy and look great

when worn with a tee shirt, styley flats and a

denim jacket.

A must have in the wardrobe for those hotter

summer’s days is the Elm Poolside Trapeze

top ($89.95). This is fun, bright and cool. We

need to be more like European women who

are not self conscious about their arms!

Ketz Ke is a fab New Zealand label which

also does casual extremely well. We have

pictured the Ketz Ke Envy top in tangerine print

($125) – which is also available in cobalt. This is a

pretty and flattering style to wear with jeans, skirts

or pants of any length.

We have a great range of casual shoes to

team up with all of your summer wardrobe and have

photographed a selection here.

Backyard Critters

SCHOOLS

The life of a monarch

Mike Bowie is

an ecologist

who

specialises in

entomology

(insects and

other invertebrates).

Each week he

introduces a new

species found in his

backyard at Lincoln.

His column aims to

raise public awareness

of biodiversity, the

variety of living things

around us

THE LARGEST and arguably

the most well-known butterfly in

New Zealand is the monarch

(sanaus plexippus).

The monarch

arrived in New

Zealand around

1873, having migrated

across the

Pacific from North

America via islands

along the way.

The longest insect migration

record of 3432km

is held by a female which

flew from Canada to Mexico,

travelling 120km per day.

It is the only butterfly in the

world known to undertake a

return migration, even though it

may take several generations to

do so.

However, in New Zealand,

monarchs don’t migrate or travel

so far, but like their overseas relatives,

they hibernate over winter

in large groups.

In Christchurch, monarchs

overwinter in tall trees at several

sites including Abberley Park,

Centennial Park, St James

Park, the Pioneer

Recreation and

Sports Centre

playground, Linwood Cemetery,

Redwood Park, Woodham Park

and Bishopdale Park.

Overwintering is triggered

when air temperature drops

below 13 deg C for two days. In

spring, eggs are laid on milkweeds,

including the swan plant,

and take four to 10 days to hatch.

Larva take between nine and

20 days to pupation and adults

emerge from pupae 10 to 28 days

later.

Male monarchs have a

black spot (scent gland) on

each of their hind wings

and have thinner veins

than females.

GROW: The

monarch butterfly

goes through a

life cycle of four

different stages.

First there is the

egg, then the larvae

or caterpillar (left),

the pupa or chrysalis

(above), and finally the

adult butterfly.

From Thursday 9 November Airways New Zealand, the Board of

Airline Representatives New Zealand (BARNZ), Christchurch Airport and

New Southern Sky will run a 12-month flight paths trial, which will involve

approximately 25% of arrivals (landings) into Christchurch.

The trial will gather data to be used in the progressive upgrade from

procedures based on radars to a network guided by satellites.

The new navigation procedures are more accurate and allow for shorter,

more direct routes, as well as more efficient take-offs and landings.

Collectively, they reduce fuel burn, airport and airspace congestion, aircraft

emissions and noise impacts on communities.

Day at The

Pedal Pusher

Cup Day is almost upon us.

If heading to the track, a good

place to start is at The Pedal

Pusher. Enjoy a Champagne

breakfast then hop on their

organised shuttle to their

sister bar and restaurant in

Addington where you can

enjoy a tipple, before a short

stroll to the course.

For those not spending

the day at Addington, catch

the big race on the screens

at The Pedal Pusher, sharing

the excitement with others

while enjoying a refreshing

beverage. Get a group

together to watch the race,

lingering over food to share or a meal.

There are delicious choices on The Pedal

Pusher’s new summer menu.

Experience their mussel and smoked hoki

fritter served with water cress and aioli as

a small plate. For a main, a new feature is

their lamb salad created from lamb shoulder

that has braised for 12 hours. This is served

on toasted flat bread and comes with olives,

tomatoes, cucumber and feta mixed with

mint and yoghurt dressing. Another new

dish is the pan fried Salmon Nicoise - fresh

Akaroa salmon served with new seasoned

potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, kalamata

olives, boiled egg and rocket pesto. Both

dishes are gluten free. There are also fun yet

healthy children’s menu choices.

For a sweet treat, The Pedal Pusher’s

famous orange infused Brulee augmented

with orange and mint salad,

blood orange sorbet and

meringues will offer a little

devilment. Alternatively, try

a dessert cocktail such as the

Jaffalicious – a mix of Baileys,

Cointreau, Frangelico and

White Creme de Cacao.

“This cocktail tastes just like

Jaffas, taking you back to your

childhood,” says Madlen who

with husband Wayne Shaw,

own and operate The Pedal

Pusher restaurants and bars in

Rolleston and Addington.

You will find fresh daily

baking options (including

gluten free) so call by for their

coffee and huge muffin or scone deal, for just

$7.

The Pedal Pusher recently joined Uber

Eats. You can now order their delicious

food to be delivered to your door, simply by

downloading the app.

If stuck for Christmas present ideas, this is

easily sorted with a gift voucher for The Pedal

Pusher; order via their website.

This extremely well designed bar and

restaurant has areas for small or large groups,

televisions for watching

sport, and a children’s corner

with toys and their very own

television programmes. Call

by on Sundays between 3pm

and 6pm and you can relax

while listening to live music,

providing a great way to end

the weekend.

The Pedal Pusher is located

at 55 Faringdon Boulevard

in the South Point shopping

complex at Rolleston’s wellknown

Question:

Is now a good time to plant Tomatoes?

November is a great time

Answer: to plant tomatoes outside,

as the weather is more

settled now. Prepare the ground 2 to 3 weeks before

planting. Dig in good compost and remove any

weeds. While you are there, check that the soil is

not too dry. The best site to grow tomatoes is one

that has plenty of sun, shelter from cold winds,

and access to a good water supply (but has good

drainage too). Tomatoes are gross feeders, meaning

they will need a lot of nutrients through the growing

season. At planting time, incorporate fertilisers such

as Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser or Nitrophoska. Hold

on to the fertiliser, you will need this through the

season.

Place the supporting stakes in the ground before planting, and tie the stems to the

stakes. Once rapid growth has started they must not get stressed so need to have

regular watering and be tied to the stake to keep the stems straight. Laterals must be

removed as soon as they are able to be handled to encourage flower development.

Three travel prize draws for early

entries in dairy industry awards

Entries in the 2018 New Zealand Share

Farmer of the Year, Dairy Manager of

the Year and Dairy Trainee of the Year

competitions are now being accepted

online at www.dairyindustryawards.co.nz.

Entries close on November 30.

All those that enter before midnight on

November 9 will go into the *Early Bird

Entry Prize Draw and be in with a chance

to win a share of $9000 in travel vouchers.

One travel voucher will be given to an

early entrant in each competition. There are

three prize draws in total.

“We think the Early Bird Entry Prize

Draw of travel vouchers are one way we can

help dairy farmers take a break and have

some fun,” awards general manager Chris

Keeping says.

“Rural mental health has been in the

spotlight lately, and this early bird travel

prize acknowledges that farming is a 24/7

career. It is so important to take time away

from the farm, to take some downtime and

have a holiday. Many farmers use the time

to enjoy family, and plan future personal

and business goals.”

The prize draw for early entrants in the

Share Farmer category is valued at $4000,

while it is worth $3000 for those eligible in

the Dairy Manager category and $2000 for

eligible Dairy Trainee entrants.

Mrs Keeping says it is pleasing to see the

number of people who have already entered

the 2018 awards programme, which aims

to assist people to progress in their dairy

farming career and promotes excellence

within the industry.

The New Zealand Dairy Industry

Awards are supported by national sponsors

Westpac, DairyNZ, DeLaval, Ecolab,

Federated Farmers, Fonterra Farm Source,

Honda Motorcycles, LIC, Meridian Energy,

and Ravensdown, along with industry

partner Primary ITO.

More information on the three

competitions can be found at www.

dairyindustryawards.co.nz.

*To be eligible for the Early Bird Entry Prize Draw,

entrants must enter by midnight on November 9 and

complete the judging process for the competition entered.

The winners will be drawn from eligible entrants on

March 20, 2018 and notified by phone and online at

www.dairyindustryawards.co.nz on March 21, 2018.

With PrideTM encourages best practice

dairy farming.

“It is our flagship programme. It puts

into action the things that really matter to

us by partnering with our milk suppliers

to use best practice to look after animals,

protect the environment and care for

people on farm. Of course it also focuses

on food safety and the quality of the milk

our suppliers produce,” Synlait’s managing

director and CEO John Penno says.

Lead With PrideTM has been run by

Synlait for five years and ensures milk

suppliers meet prescribed requirements for

environment, milk quality, animal health

and welfare, and social responsibility.

This approval means that Environment

Canterbury has confidence in the systems

being run on Synlait’s certified Lead With

PrideTM farms.

As a result, these farms are less likely to

face additional compliance inspections

by Environment Canterbury as they meet

auditing standards through Lead With

PrideTM.

Environment Canterbury is the regional

council responsible for a wide variety

of functions, including environmental

monitoring, regional biosecurity, and the

issuing of permits and consents.

“This is fantastic news for Synlait as it

shows Environment Canterbury recognises

the integrity of our programme and the

high standards we have for our certified

Lead With PrideTM milk suppliers,” says

Mr Penno.

“We set a high benchmark five years ago

and we’re beginning to see the industry

recognise that we are well ahead of the

game.”

Environment Canterbury chief executive,

Bill Bayfield, says this is the first time

an independent party has had such an

agreement with a regional council.

“We’re really pleased to have this

approval in place with Synlait. By working

in partnership in this way there will be

better outcomes for farmers and for water

quality in the region.”

To get the approval, Synlait had to submit

an application and supporting evidence to

prove that milk suppliers certified under

the Lead With PrideTM programme have

sufficient control of their operation so

that additional farm audits are no longer

required.

Synlait currently has 50 Lead With

PrideTM milk suppliers, and it is expected

this will grow to more than a third of

Synlait’s supply base by the end of the

financial year.

DARFIELD

New Zealand’s countryside

showcased in new exhibition

Two New Zealand artists feature in the

latest exhibition at Selwyn Gallery – Charles

Pickworth and Simon Kramer.

Pickworth was born in Dunedin, New

Zealand, and brought up in Central Otago,

and later in Oamaru. He contracted polio at

the age of four and lost the use of one arm.

In addition, he suffers from asthma and has

worked at a variety of jobs. Through his 35

years of painting Pickworth has come to

realise that this is what he wants to do most

of all. He is a self-taught artist and paints

full time.

He prefers painting plein-air and travels

frequently searching out new subjects,

specialising nowadays in South Island

scenes. He paints mostly in oils, occasionally

in acrylics, and has the knack of capturing

the mood and wonderful range of colours

in South Island scenery. He has a bright

and enthusiastic nature and enjoys sharing

his love of painting with established and

budding artists.

Kramer is a professional artist, who

started painting in 1985. He is a veteran

of outdoor painting and has painted

hundreds of locations in the New Zealand

countryside. He is proficient in any painting

medium and produces works for sale in

oils, watercolour, and acrylics. He also runs

a boutique framing business and lectures

on art through classes and workshops.

About his own work, Kramer says: “As

an outdoor artist I see the beauty of God’s

creation and realise anything I do is inspired

by his ideas. He is the original artist, and

my inspiration. I know the value he has

placed in every one of us, and believe the

human spirit is the only sacred thing on

earth today.

“I find our influence on nature and each

other fascinating, and sometimes heartbreaking.

I have included some of our

everyday endeavours in this body of work.

I hope it inspires you to believe in the good

of people and consider God’s ideas as he

intended them.”

Selwyn Gallery, 17 South Terrace, is

open daily (except Mondays) from 10am to

4pm for the duration of this show. A show

programme is available from the gallery.

Spacious ECE centre offers

excellent care & education

“Home away from Home” is part

of the philosophy of the West Melton

Kindergarten, Nursery and Learning

Centre, where a respectful, fun, learning

environment is provided for children. There

is a balance between routine, structure and

children’s free play.

The attractive purpose-built centre caters

for children three months to six years in

four separate sections – the Nursery for

under twos, Kindy for two and three yearolds,

the Learning Centre for children

approximately three and three-quarters to

six years old, and a Before and After School

Programme for West Melton Primary

school children.

All the permanent teachers are qualified,

registered ECE teachers, who are passionate

about working with children and their

families. The centre received an excellent

ERO report.

Primary caregiving by key teachers

ensures nursery children develop strong,

secure relationships giving them the

confidence to explore the environment and

develop their independence. Throughout

the centre, key teachers plan for individual

children’s interests and needs. Teachers

nurture and support each child as they

travel on their learning path.

The large, expansive grass and barked

outdoor environment has enough space

to encourage small group play and

provides areas where children can use

their imagination with a range of openended

equipment to adapt the area to suit

– rockets, planes, etc. while still allowing

space for a mini game of rugby for the All

Black fans.

A separate bike track, under trees, keeps

the bikes away from the main play areas.

The indoor areas are spacious, well laid

out and resourced. Children are supported

in the dispositions of exploration, problem

solving, negotiating, persisting, caring and

respecting in a fun learning environment.

20 hours ECE is available for children

aged three and over.

The Before School Programme opens

at 7.30am and the children are escorted

to school at 8.30am. The After School

Programme runs from 3pm-5.45pm.

During that time afternoon tea is provided

and children receive support with their

homework.

Parents and caregivers are welcome to

visit at any time and look around the centre.

West Melton Kindergarten, Nursery and

Learning Centre is located at 739 Weedons

A fresh approach to physio

A young team with a fresh approach is

providing a different type of physiotherapy

treatment at PhysioSteps in West Melton.

As physiotherapist Caitlin Clark explains,

it is treatment for the whole patient,

treating the source of the injury, not just

the symptoms.

“This means that we fix the injury at

its source, to prevent you from returning

again with the same injury. We do this by

completing a thorough assessment, fully

explaining the injury and then make a

plan with the patient as to how it will be

managed and how long it will take.

“We emphasise self-management, with

physiotherapy guidance, ensuring the

injury improves as quickly and as well as

possible.”

Research has shown the effectiveness of an

exercise-based approach to physiotherapy

treatment, Caitlin says, helping patients be

fully engaged in their rehab process and

speeding up recovery.

In their purpose-built clinic in Weedons

Ross Road, the physiotherapists Kayla

Marshall, Caitlin Clark and Shaun Clark

provide treatment for musculoskeletal

(muscles and joints) injuries, sports

injuries, as well as pain management and

occupational health/ergonomics advice.

They are HDANZ accredited and

contracted to ACC, which means they

are audited and comply with the national

standards set out for physiotherapy.

PhysioSteps are located at 10/736

Weedons Ross Road, West Melton,

phone (03) 930 1119. Opening hours

are Monday and Thursday 9am-8pm,

Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 9am-

Checklist for selling your home

MAKE SMALL FIXES Inspect your home

with a buyer’s eyes, and correct the flaws that

are most egregious (if affordable) or can be

relatively easily fixed—from repairing cracks in

the walkways to repainting dingy walls or oiling

creaky hinges.

SET A PRICE A real estate agent will give you

a market analysis free of charge or commitment.

Ask a few to get a broader picture of the market,

then ask to see listings for properties similar

to yours that have sold in the past six months.

Check out comparable listings yourself in the

real estate section of your newspaper or on

websites. Then decide whether you want a

quick, easy sale or the highest possible price.

CLEAN & DECLUTTER Weed out excess

furniture, knicknacks, and “stuff”—toss it, donate

it, give it away, sell it at a yard sale, or put it into

storage—so the house seems more spacious

and buyers can imagine themselves in it.

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT MAINTENANCE

From the moment you start showing your house,

keep the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens

weeded, rooms spotless and clutter-free.

READY YOUR HOME FOR OPEN DAYS Hide

pocketable valuables, display fresh flowers or

bowls of fruit, bake a batch of cookies for the

homey smell, open the drapes, keep pets out

of sight.

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO YOUR OWN

BUILDING INSPECTION It may save you time,

especially with older homes, to identify—and

potentially solve—problems your buyer’s

inspection will discover later.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Sunny free-flowing living

Likely, the largest of its kind in New Zealand,

Faringdon’s new show home village is attracting

considerable interest and Today Homes’ two new show

homes have already received many visitors.

Today Homes chose to showcase two extremely

well-liked designs. These afford the opportunity to see

and feel how each would work, as well as picture how

changes could be made to suit specific needs.

“The Burnham show home is one of our most

popular designs,” says Dean McLeod, General Manager

for Today Homes.

“This home offers ease of living with free-flowing

areas, indoor/outdoor access to sun soaked courtyards

and three-car garaging, something that is proving a

necessity for many families who need flexible options

for car and content storage. As one of our extensive

line-up of house designs, the Burnham’s popularity is

due in part to how easy it is to site on many sections for

optimum sun, as well as to its adaptability to particular

client needs.”

This three-bedroom 209m2 home is equally ideal

whether a family or a couple, especially those wanting

three-car garaging with room for bikes and toys, or a

third vehicle. The design also lends itself to a two car

garage or four-bedroom option.

There is a spacious feel in the open plan living of this

home. A separate formal lounge runs off to one side of

the living, accessed through double open-top French

doors that allow light while being perfect for increasing

living space when entertaining or to enjoy the internal

sound speaker system.

The galley style designer kitchen is well appointed

with island sink and seating, a generous walk-in pantry

and Bosch appliances.

Excellent indoor/outdoor flow from living areas and

master bedroom capitalise on sun throughout the day,

while in the master bedroom clever design ensures a

capacious ensuite, walk-in robe and sliders to the sunny

courtyard.

Both the second and third bedrooms have double

wardrobes, the latter ideally placed for use as a guest

bedroom or office if working from home. There is also

added storage with two generously sized hall cupboards

and a place for brooms in the cylinder cupboard.

This is a particularly attractive house. Its two street

facing gables and vertical cedar boarding add a touch

of class, complementing the pristine white brick and

mortar. The flat faced aluminium joinery is an upgraded

suite giving cleaner lines for an appealing look

while their size and large openings assure a light fresh

home.

The Burnham show home while highly specified is

typical of Today Homes’ standard specifications. It has

a fully insulated garage, garage carpet, gib coving with

round corners, Methven tap ware, LED lighting and a

house alarm.

Today Home’s Faringdon Burnham show home

illustrates what can be achieved on a 600 m2 section

with plenty of sunny outdoor living space for all to

enjoy, as well as off-street parking space.

Located at 576 East Maddisons Road,

this show home is open seven days a

week from 12noon until 4pm.
