Keeping your Home and

Property Fire Safe

Fires can start and spread quickly, especially when conditions are

dry, windy and hot. Following these tips can help keep your home and

property safe:

• Assess the fire risk for your house and property. Have an escape plan and know

where you’ll meet.

• Make sure fire appliances can get to you – they need a clear space at least 4

metres wide and four metres high.

• To slow or stop a fire spreading to your home, create a clear space around it of at

least three metres. Remove branches hanging over your roof, keep gutters clean,

and remove or prune flammable plants and shrubs.

• Activities such as lawn mowing, chainsaw use and grinding can produce sparks

so keep machines well maintained. If the weather is hot and dry, use machinery

where you’ll meet.

in the early morning when its cooler.

• If you’ve had a fire, check it regularly. The bigger it is, the longer its embers will

smoulder – fires can even re-ignite months later. Turn piles over and apply water

to ensure there’s no heat left.

• Install long life photoelectric smoke alarms in every bedroom, living area and

hallway; and install heat alarms in your kitchen, bathroom or laundry. Test

batteries every month and keep smoke alarms clean.

• Don’t overload multi-boards, and make sure leads and cords are in good

condition. Never put extension cords under carpets or mats, and don’t use them if

they’re tightly coiled.

Turn off unused appliances and if practical unplug them. Keep electrical

• appliances Activities such away as from lawn water mowing, and chainsaw get second use hand appliances grinding can tested produce by a sparks licensed

electrician or gas fitter.

• Talk to your neighbours about what you can do together as a community to

reduce fire risks.

A REMARKABLE

REGION

The Selwyn District is a region full of optimism

and vitality, combined with a very strong sense of

community.

Selwyn is relishing in its ongoing growth with

the old and new merging to create a remarkable

district with diverse communities to live in.

Our people are what continue to make Selwyn

truly special.

It’s full of dynamic residents who continue to

invest their time, energy and money into making

this a better place not only for themselves and

their families but also the many visitors who come

to marvel at the townships and the natural beauty

Selwyn has to offer.

Our relationship with this region continues to

grow as we continue to deliver stories about the

people and places weekly through The Selwyn

Times – giving residents a voice and also informing them about what is

happening in their communities.

The 2018 Selwyn Residents’ Guide highlights the very best of the Selwyn

District and also delivers information on businesses and services available to

those who live and visit here.

In a district that is thriving, we are happy to provide you with an insight into

what makes the Selwyn region, the very special place we all know it to be.

Steve McCaughan

CEO - Star Media

DISCLAIMER

Selwyn is the best place to live in New

Zealand. We have great parks and schools

for young people, there are plenty of jobs

with unemployment at 2.2%, we have lots of

community groups to join or volunteer with,

and everywhere has views of the Southern

Alps and a great city just down the road.

There are new things popping up every

week, why don’t you try them out? There are

things that have remained unchanged for

generations, have you visited those sites?

I trust this guide helps you understand and

explore a little more of our great community

whether you have just recently moved here

or have never moved away.

R OLLESTON

By all accounts, William Rolleston

never owned land in the town that was

named after him. He did, however, play

a major role in bringing the railway to

town, with a railway terminus added in

1866.

Rolleston is now the seat of the

council and largest town in Selwyn.

Originally it was considered a satellite

town of Christchurch - not always a

popular designation - however when

Prime Minister Norman Kirk called

Rolleston the “Town of the Future”

he extolled his vision for how he

could see the future development

and growth. Unfortunately, his vision

did not come to fruition during his

lifetime, with stagnation in the 70s and

80s. The 1990s however saw a decade

of change for this township with the

population increasing and growth

of the town. In the 2001 census, the

population was nearly 2000. In 2013,

the population was nearly 10,000,

and as of June 2017, it stands at over

14,000.

With the population increase,

demand on amenities has increased

also. House construction is nothing

short of phenomenal, with Faringdon

leading the way. The South Point retail

precinct in Faringdon serves residents

well.

Rolleston is served, currently, by two

supermarkets, medical, dental and

physiotherapy centres, pharmacies,

banks and numerous retail outlets,

restaurants, cafes, and fast food

outlets. It is, however, poised to take

a giant leap forward. Developments

are underway to provide many more

retail opportunities, a new library

and community centre,

and, longer term, an even

bigger retail precinct on

Tennyson Street, turning it

into Rolleston’s main street.

Foster Recreation Park

is being developed as the

largest sport and recreation

area in Selwyn. The children’s

playground at Foster Park

opened in early 2018, and

is very popular. The latest

Selwyn District Council

long term plan consultation

document, Fast Forward

28, includes a project to

build an indoor courts

complex at Foster Park,

to provide space for the

rapidly-growing demand for

sports such as basketball,

badminton, netball and

futsal. The complex of four

indoor courts and four

covered courts would be

complemented by a sports

hub facility and toilets and

changing rooms for Foster

Park. This proposed $21

million project would be

completed in late 2019.

The Aquatic Centre, several

new primary schools and

Rolleston College, for year

9-10s (which will eventually

take year 9-13 pupils)

and numerous sports and

recreational opportunities,

all cater to families in the

Rolleston township and

area. The Council is also

proposing in the 10-year

consultation plan, to create

an extension to the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre to provide

a new 25m, eight-lane pool

to help meet continuing

demand for learn to swim

and other activities. The

$12m proposal would also

include a café and fitness/

wellbeing space.

Izone and IPort industry,

business and freight

management hubs have

brought significant

opportunities to Rolleston.

Jobs, economic growth and

international recognition

can only be good for

what is finally becoming

Canterbury’s town of the

future.

IZONE

More than 120 companies, primarily

in the manufacturing, construction,

logistics, and agricultural sectors, have

made Izone home.

Izone, a 188ha business hub, and one

of New Zealand’s largest industrial

developments, is only 12 minutes from

Hornby, 20 minutes from Christchurch

International Airport, and 40 minutes

from the Port of Lyttelton. When the

Southern Motorway opens, these

times could be cut by as much as 50%.

The development, owned by Selwyn

District Council, ensures commercially

favourable district plan rules, including

no development levies, no maximum

site cover requirements, and no

restrictions on the generation of traffic

movements. Retail activity provisions

are relatively permissive, and noise

standards are realistic.

Izone’s state of the art infrastructure

takes a best practice approach,

recognising urban design trends. Its

wide roads and carefully designed

traffic management systems, network

of walkways, native plantings, and

attractive communal areas make

it very environmentally friendly,

encourage a sense of community,

and create the potential for enhanced

work-life balance. These sustainability

features and Izone’s demonstrable

affordability – low land costs, low

rates, and developer friendly district

plan – make it the envy of other largescale

industrial parks nationally.

Izone contributes significantly to

Selwyn’s economic growth, creating

more and more jobs as it grows, and

bringing industry to the region.

IPORT

IPort, the Carter Group’s 122ha

industrial and logistics park, is

Link Drive

revolutionising freight movements

through the Canterbury region. It

is strategically positioned at the

intersection of the South Island’s major

freight arteries – the South Island Main

Trunk Railway line, the Midland Railway

line, and State Highway 1. These already

provide easy access to Christchurch

International Airport and Lyttelton

Port. When the Southern Motorway

opens (2019/2020) efficiency will be

even more enhanced.

IPort provides a diversity of land

offering, from small industrial land for

sale, through to large design, build and

lease options. Sites can be customised

and operated on 24/7.

As with the adjacent Izone, the

Selwyn District Council is supportive

of IPort’s growth, and benefits such

as no maximum site cover, realistic

noise standards, and no restrictions

on traffic movements, making IPort a

fantastic opportunity for businesses.

L INCOLN

Lincoln is another of Selwyn’s

townships which has seen huge growth

in the past decade.

A township which originally serviced

the first farming families which settled

in the area, the town had its first growth

spurt when Lincoln University was

first established. Since then it slowly

developed until about 10 years ago

when great demand for housing has

seen a remarkable jump in the number

of families who now call this township

home.

The town still maintains the character

of a small rural village but includes

many amenities which add to the

town’s popularity.

The Lincoln Event Centre, Lincoln

Library, Lincoln & Districts Community

Care all cater to the needs of residents

of all ages. As well The Famous Grouse,

The Black Door and The Laboratory

along with other cafes and takeaways

providing places to dine.

The Lincoln Medical Centre is an

essential service provider in the area

delivering medical assistance to those

who live and work in Lincoln. There

are also a range of physiotherapists,

massage therapists, podiatrists and

other health providers who ensure

residents maintain their wellbeing.

Sport is a big part of Lincoln’s culture

with rugby, badminton and netball the

most prominent sports in the winter

and lawn bowls, tennis and cricket

clubs also providing sport for all ages

during the summer months.The Lincoln

Golf Club is also a valuable asset with

the picturesque but challenging 9-hole

course available to play all year round.

Touch rugby is enjoyed by all ages in the

summer as well, with the Lincoln Rugby

Club organising the touch competition

for all ages and skill abilities.

tertiary education to its students, it also

opens its doors to the wider community

with the book shop, café and Lincoln

all levels of education on offer from

pre-school to tertiary. There are also

a variety of activities for children

buildings: the Pioneer Hall (1874), Liffey

Cottage (1875), St Stephen’s Anglican

Church (1877), Lincoln University’s Ivey

Hall (1881), Union Parish Church (1882),

and Coronation Library (1911). A plough,

made in the town in 1865, is also on

show. The Lincoln Historic Walk map

is available at www.sensationalselwyn.

co.nz

Those wanting to walk around the

town are spoilt for choice with The

Liffey River providing a wonderful way

to amble around. New subdivisions

have also included walkways and the

Rail Trail is also accessible from Lincoln.

Nearby towns include: Springston to

the west, Ladbrooks and Broadfields

closer to the city, and Greenpark

through which cyclists pass as they

follow the Little River Rail Trail. At

historic Tai Tapu people visit cafés and

restaurants enjoying the picturesque

setting with a Port Hills backdrop.

P REBBLETON

The township of Prebbleton dates

back to when the Prebble family settled

there in the 1850s. Younger brother,

Edward opened a general store and

“Prebble Town” was born. It is one of

Canterbury’s oldest settlements, and

its long history still whispers through

the streets and buildings.

Prebbleton’s proximity to

Christchurch, only 5 minutes from

Hornby and 15 to 20 minutes to the

CBD, make it a very popular residential

area. It is supported by its own retail

precinct, with cafes, fuel and car

repairs, local produce and groceries,

restaurants, takeaways and the

Prebbleton Tavern which harks all the

way back to Edward Prebble himself.

Surrounded by orchards, olive groves,

race-horse stables and horticulture,

Prebbleton has retained a village

feel. There are preschools, a primary

school, sports fields, a skate park, and

a community hall.

The monthly Sunday market is

popular, weather permitting, and there

is a walking group and activities such

as indoor bowls and Tai Chi. The local

hall houses many private celebrations

as well as community gatherings and

events.

L EESTON

Leeston is the principal town in

the Ellesmere district, servicing the

rich farmlands and surrounds. As

the population grows, so to do the

services available to residents. There

is a medical centre, rest home, RSA,

fitness centre, library, toy library,

volunteer fire brigade and schools

from pre-school to high school. There

is a supermarket, cafés and bakeries.

There is Airbnb accommodation in

the area, and the Crate and Barrel, a

family run hotel and restaurant, also

has rooms available.

Lakeland Art is a new gallery in

Leeston, showcasing local artists in

many genres.

The Ellesmere Big Band has been

based in Leeston for more than a 115

years. The multi-award winning band

performs regularly at shows, festivals,

weddings and more.

Leeston township dates back to the

1860s, and many families have a strong

connection to the area. Airborne

Honey is the oldest surviving brand

of honey in New Zealand. William

Bray and Alfred Barrett moved their

operation from Banks Peninsula to

Leeston in the late 1920s, and it is still

based there today.

A cenotaph, honouring the men and

women of the district who served

and died in numerous wars, occupies

centre stage at the entrance to the

town. ANZAC remembrance is held

there every year.

Leeston has a strong sporting

community, utilising large sports fields

and the rugby clubrooms. There is also

tennis, shooting, and archery in the

area. Scouts, Girl Guides, and St. John

cadets also have a presence.

Te Waihora/Lake Elesmere is an

internationally recognised wetlands

and wildlife reserve. It has great

cultural significance and history to

Ngai Tahu. Many restoration projects

maintain this beautiful area. A walk to

the Harts Creek bird hide is easy for

all the family, and only several minutes

from Leeston.

A highlight of the year is the annual

Ellesmere A & P Show which will be

held on 13 October this year.

H ORORATA EVENTS

The rural communities nestled in

the Selwyn foothills are filled with

passionate and dedicated people

who give up their time to run some of

the best events in the district. These

events are the fabric of the community

and make the area a great place to live

and visit.

Annual events include the Heritage

Open Days, Hororata Pig and Possum

Hunt, Windwhistle Golf Classic, Malvern

Hunt, Hororata Swap Meet, Terrace

Station Garden Visits, Homesbush

Stables Open Day, Hororata Parish

Spring Fair and the Hororata Highland

Games. As well as these annual

events there are numerus events and

festivals which happen throughout

the year. New to the calendar in 2018

was the Hororata Night Glow, another

example of what these communities

can do when they band together. All

of these events are made possible by

volunteers who give their time to make

them happen with many community

organisations.

The area has many great venues for

events including the Lake Coleridge,

Glenroy, Hororata and Glenroy Halls.

The Hororata Domain is the perfect

venue for any event large or small; the

cross country course is regularly used

for equestrian events. The Hororata

Golf Club located in Glentunnel is a

wonderful setting for not only golf but

with a café soon to be opened, other

functions as well.

For information on all community

events visit www.hororata.org.nz

H ORORATA HIGHLAND GAMES

The Hororata Highland Games was created in 2011 from

the community’s desire to take charge of its own future

following the devastation suffered during Canterbury

earthquakes. Being proactive, a motivated group of

individuals developed a theme which resonated with them

and filled a unique gap in the event market; the Hororata

Highland Games was born and is now a permanent fixture

in the Canterbury event calendar.

The event attracts over 500 competitors who compete

in highland dancing, piping and drumming, tug o’ war,

highland spin (fleece to garment challenge), small bore

shooting, amateur heavy athletics (men’s and women’s)

and the Oceania Heavyweight Championship (professional

heavy athletics).

Visitors don’t come just to sit on the bleaches, but all

ages can have a go themselves in modified or replicas of

the competitive events. Have A Go events include the junior

warriors, caber or sheath toss, lightweight farmers walk,

small bore shooting, archery, kilted mile, haggis hurl and

the hororata pie eating competition. Most of these events

are free to participate in.

The event hosts over 100 stalls offering quality merchandise

and produce. In the stalls area there is a children’s

fairground, music entertainment, Scottish country dancing

and the Taste of Scotland offering a range of Scottish

themed food and wine. Visitors discover Scottish heritage

and their ancestry in Clan Lane.

The Chieftain’s welcoming ceremony is a unique blend

of Scottish and Kiwi culture. A Karanga welcomes the

chieftain, but the response comes from bag pipes. A kapa

haka group adds even more flare and excitement to this

spectacle. The massed bands closing ceremony is heart

pounding and a fitting end to the day.

This is a family friendly event that appeals to all ages and

visitors don’t have to be Scottish to enjoy it. Over 11,000

people attend each year.

Above all else the Hororata Highland Games is a

community event; run by the Hororata Community Trust

for the benefit of the community. Over 200 volunteers

join Clan Hororata each year to make the event happen.

The Hororata Highland Games is a truly inspiring story of

what a rural community can achieve with motivation and a

shared vision.

C ASTLE HILL – ARTHUR’S PASS

Main Highway 73 leads you not only

over Porters Pass and through some

of the best scenery in New Zealand

but also to the high country villages

of Castle Hill and Arthur’s Pass. Along

this most spectacular drive you will

pass many historical sites along with

some amazing lakes.

Lake Lyndon, a small lake near

Castle Hill, is popular for rainbow

trout fishing. Lake Lyndon becomes

very popular in summer due to its

close proximately to local towns of

Springfield, Sheffield and Darfield for

water sports. Winter at the lake can

also be spectacular and can make the

perfect photo opportunity as the lake

regularly freezes due to its elevation

and location.

Nestled under the Craigieburn

Range, a high alpine village sits. Castle

Hill village is a most picturesque place

in both summer and winter. It has a

small number of permanent residents

along with a number of holiday homes

(used extensively during the winter

ski season). The village is the centre

for many who participate in the many

recreational activities in the area,

including exploring the distinctive

limestone boulders of Castle Hill, skiing

and mountain biking. The boulders

are located within the Kura Tawhiti

Conservation Area.

Lake Pearson runs parallel with State

Highway 73 and is easily accessible. At

195ha it is the largest of the Pearson,

or Waimakariri, trout fishing lakes.

Fishing from a dinghy or kayak, not

mechanically propelled, is permitted

on this lake.

Cave Stream Scenic Reserve is a

popular stop for all. If you take on the

challenge of walking through Cave

Stream limestone formation, please

ensure you read the warning signs

before attempting this walk.

The unique Arthur’s Pass alpine village

sits 740m above sea level, is nestled

into the mountains and surrounded

by beech forest in the centre of the

Arthur’s Pass National Park. Although

a small village, its welcome is always

big with only 25 full time residents

plus the additional estimated 250,000

plus visitors each year – the village

always has a busy vibe - whether you

arrive by the Transalpine train, car,

camper or for the brave by bike or

scooter. The visitor centre is located

as you enter the village and makes

a perfect first stop to inquire about

the history of the Pass. Arthur’s

Pass also boasts a general store, tea

rooms and a restaurant. However

it is recommended that you bring

groceries/tramping supplies with you

due to a limited selection.

Many walking tracks are easily

accessed from the village with the

Devil’s Punch Bowl being a popular

one.

SELWYN MARAE -

TAUMUTU

Taumutu sits alongside Te Waihora

(Lake Ellesmere) and very close to the

sea. It is the site of several pā, significant

in the history of Māori. It is also where

some iwi, who were migrating south

from the North Island, decided to settle

due to Te Waihora’s rich resources.

A Maori hall was erected in 1891 on

the old pā site of Ngāti Moki, later

becoming a working Marae with the

adjoining Whare Kai built in 1986.

The Marae serves the descendants

of Moki and father Te Ruahikihiki, who

now number in their thousands. A

Rūnanga committee are responsible for

the development and operation of the

marae that couples as an educational

facility, relating Māori history and

custom to future generations. It is one

of eighteen Ngai Tahu Papatipu marae.

The Rūnanga is also closely associated

with the wider Selwyn community and

has gifted names to new schools.

Closer to the sea, the historic Hone

Wetere Church and adjoining Urupa

(graveyard) sit on the site of Te

Ruahikihiki’s pā. This area is of particular

historical significance as it includes

some old pre-European burials.

If visiting please adhere to Māori

protocol by not entering the marae

grounds unless invited. However,

people are welcome to explore the

church grounds and spend time on the

lake and beach beyond.

Morning: 9:00am & 10:30am

Evening: 6:00pm

Service: 10.00am

Morning Tea: 9.45am

Mornings: 9:30am

S ELWYN A&P SHOWS

Many committees around the region

have already started preparation for

the start of the A & P Show season in

Selwyn.

Many look forward throughout

the cooler months to the fun and

enjoyment that this day brings and of

course the fierce competition to take

out ribbons at these events.

As much as there is friendly rivalry,

the A & P Show also provides a chance

for friends to catch up and visitors to

come and see more of what the rural

life involves.

There is much to see and do at an

A & P Show – whether you like arts

and crafts, gardening, shearing, wood

chopping, highland country dancing,

vintage machinery and of course the

competition for the elite breeders to

have their livestock judged against

their peers.

At the Ellesmere A & P Show in

Leeston you will also be treated to

Horse Showing and Jumping, Country

Kids competition, Young Farmers

Agri-Sports, Wearable Arts and much,

much more.

Put the dates in your calendar now so

you don’t miss out on an exciting day

out for all the family.

S OUTH ISLAND

AGRICULTURAL FIELD DAYS

The Courtenay Road site in Kirwee

will again be the venue for the next

South Island Agricultural Field Days

(SIAFD) being held on March 27-29,

2019.

The SIAFD is the opportunity to give

farmers and others in the rural sector a

chance to see the latest in agricultural

advancements – whether this be in

machinery, services or technology that

can be used to optimise production.

The emphasis is on home-grown

products available on the market but

also includes products and services

from further afield.

The Field Days is the only agricultural

show in New Zealand to feature sideby-side

demonstrations, with 80 - 100

tractors, headers, mowers, seed drills

and other machines being put through

their paces each day.

The SIAFD began in 1951 at

Motukarara, with the event now

attracting between 20,000 and

25,000 visitors during the three-day

showcase.

The SIAFD is a non-profit,

incorporated society, run mostly by

volunteers who are either farmers or

who work in the agricultural field.

Media spokesperson Daniel Schat

says at 80ha, SIAFD is the largest in

area of all Field Days in New Zealand.

“We are currently undertaking capital

development, so in years to come we

can optimise all our space,” Daniel

says.

Wet weather during the 2017 event,

which made conditions difficult, has

prompted the organising committee

to spend time in the off-season laying

shingle on the laneways, and this will

facilitate a cleaner and faster set-up

for next year’s event, he says.

Machinery demonstrations will

again be a key feature of SIAFD,

and companies wanting to take part

will be able to register following the

publication of the prospectus in May.

As a non-profit organisation with

charitable status, SIAFD donates to

local community groups, and awards

university scholarships each year.

E XCAVATION AND

AGGREGATE SPECIALISTS

After working for a company, where

his job entailed driving a difficult to

handle old digger, Sandy decided to

go out on his own.

He thought if he worked hard, he

could save up for a new digger and

control how the work was carried out

so a high quality job was ensured.

That was 20 years ago. Sandy and

his wife Leanne’s business, Ellesmere

Excavation and Aggregate has grown

steadily ever since, expanding into

aggregate supply about eight years

ago. They now have six full-time and

two part-time employees, with the

business equally divided between

general excavation and aggregate

supply.

The company sources the material

from their own quarry which is

operated from the Rakaia River, where

they crush and screen alot of different

sized material.

Ellesmere Excavation and Aggregate

is a well-recognised supplier of:

• Specialist sands – 2A filter sand and

2mm turf sand;

• AP65 and AP40M4 to Transit

specifications; and

• Boulders for soak holes.

Ellesmere Excavation and Aggregate

has a loyal customer base of

commercial businesses, farmers and

individuals; many having traded with

Sandy and Leanne since they started.

“It’s about the people and doing a

quality job at a reasonable rate,” says

Sandy.

Ellesmere Excavation and Aggregate

deliver material as far as Akaroa,

Hamner Springs and south of

Asbhurton. You can contact Sandy on

0274 389 576, or via email at office@

shingle.nz

Your aggregate and excavation specialists

Call Sandy for all your Commercial and Residential

site works and rural excavation requirements.

We supply a wide range of

aggregate direct from our quarry,

ex river pick up or we deliver.

S ELWYN REAL ESTATE

There are some fundamental

necessities when you are looking to

sell or purchase a home. To ensure you

are in the best position possible, a few

simple steps can save you time and

energy.

One Agency in Rolleston has some

handy tips for getting prepared:

GETTING READY TO SELL

What are you leaving

Work out what you want to include

in the sale. Sometimes a cubby house,

plumbed fridge or wall mounted

television might be items you are

happy to leave behind. If you are

going to take the heirloom chandelier

when you leave, you need to state this

clearly in your sales contract. Your

real estate agent will go through this

process with you.

Declutter, clean and repair

For any property to look its best, you

need to ensure you pare back on some

of the more personal items. You want

everyone who walks into your home

to see themselves living there, and a

broken fence, dirty oven and Nana’s

spoon collection may all lead to turning

potential buyers away. If unsure, get a

friend you trust to come and help as

they will be less emotional about the

pieces in your house. Remember you

only have to pack them once and can

unpack them again when you get to

your new home.

Choosing how you will sell your home

This is done in collaboration with

your real estate agent. Whether you

chose an auction, deadline treaty sale

or more conventional listed price sale,

your agent will be able to advise what

method best suits your property and

which one is most likely to make you

the best money.

GETTING READY TO

BUY

Get your finances in order

If you need to borrow in order to buy

a property, you need to ensure you

meet with your mortgage broker or

lender early to get pre-approval. This

will mean you will know exactly how

much you are able to spend and allow

you to look for properties in your price

bracket.

Engage a lawyer

You will need to have a lawyer ready

to look over any contracts and assist in

conveyancing of the property. They will

also check the title of the property and

advise on different types of property

such as freehold, body corporate etc.

Carry out due diligence

So you will need to make sure you

check the LIM report with council and

get a builder to inspect the proposed

property you are purchasing. In any

contract you sign you should always

make it subject to a LIM and builders’

report so that if either of these come

back with major issues or concerns

you have a way to exit the purchase.

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

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

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

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

sign at busy

Waddington

intersection

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PLEAS HAVE been made to

have a stop sign installed at an

accident-prone Waddington

intersection.

Residents have asked for the

sign to be installed a the

intersection of State Highway 73

and Waimakariri Gorge Rd to

prevent future crashes.

Already two serious crashes have

been recorded at the intersection

this year, one a fatal.

Fox Glacier man Ioane Sitivi, 36,

died from injuries he sustained when

two vehicles crashed in January.

He was one of eight people hurt

in the crash. He and another person

were critically injured, while

two others were moderately injured

and four had minor injuries.

In February, a sport utility vehicle

failed to give way and was hit

by a truck. One person sustained

serious injuries while the other had

minor injuries.

Three other crashes that resulted

in both serious and minor injuries

were recorded a the intersection

between 2014-2016.

The issue was presented by

resident Bob Scott to the Sheffield-

Waddington Community Committee

in February.
