Should

Selwyn

ratepayers

fork out

for city

stadium?

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding and

Emily O’Connell

A CONTROVERSIAL suggestion

for Selwyn ratepayers to contribute

to Christchurch’s planned sports

and events arena has received

mixed responses from residents.

The district council has suggested

a targeted rate, collected by

Environment Canterbury, could be

used to help fund the new stadium.

In a submission on the city council’s

Long Term Plan, district council

staff said it could be collected

in a similar way rates are levied for

the Canterbury Museum.

“[W]here the rate paid by each

territorial authorities rateable units

are discounted based on distance

from Christchurch,” said the submission.

Leeston Community Committee

chairman Lloyd Clausen said

his personal view was ratepayers

should be contributing to “some

degree.” However, Mr Clausen said

the problem would be whether

Selwyn residents would then be

expected to contribute to other

projects such as the Metro Sports

Facility. •Turn to page 4

from the reporter’s desk

A PROPOSAL to have Selwyn ratepayers contribute to the

planned Christchurch sports and events arena has received

mixed responses from residents – see page 1.

It’s a difficult issue, and as Leeston Community Committee

chairman Lloyd Clausen pointed out, where will the line be

drawn?

If Selwyn ratepayers are to contribute to this, what about

other projects going on in Christchurch which Selwyn residents

will use?

Mayor Sam Broughton says more clarification is needed before

consultation takes place – it will be interesting to see what

other Selwyn ratepayers think of the idea.

As you’ll read on page 3, some Lincoln residents aren’t keen

on another bottle store in the area. It is a fight we have already

seen last year, let’s see how this one goes.

Residents fight another liquor store

• By Emily O’Connell

ANOTHER LIQUOR outlet

is hoping to set up shop in

Lincoln, but residents say the

township already has enough.

An application has been

submitted by Balhae Ltd for an

off-licence bottle store known

as Lincoln Liquor Centre, on

Eastfield Drive.

Lincoln resident Tania Roxborogh

said the proposed bottle

store would have a negative

effect on the community.

“I’m not anti people drinking

alcohol at all . . . we don’t need

another bottle store,” she said.

Mrs Roxborogh says her two

concerns are the health of the

community and the impact of

more litter.

Lincoln resident Dave Bunt

said another bottle shop was not

needed in the township.

“Two bottle stores are more

than enough and having more

will be completely at odds with

what Lincoln is to me – a lovely

small town and vibrant community,”

he said.

Balhae Ltd could not be

reached for comment. Submissions

on the proposed liquor

store close on Monday.

It’s not the first time residents

have objected to plans for more

bottle stores in the area.

In October, Dipin Kalra

withdrew his application to

operate the Lincoln Bottle Store

following 100 objections.

In January the district council

granted SJTP Ltd a licence for

the Liquorland store in Vernon

Drive after objectors failed to

turn up to a hearing.

COST: Selwyn residents have mixed views over whether they

should help pay for Christchurch’s planned sports arena.

Forking out for city stadium

•From page 1

Dunsandel Community Committee

chairman Russell Dalzell

believes Selwyn ratepayers should

fork out for the stadium.

“Some of them (residents)

just think it’s rugby only

but its not all just about

rugby, and I think that’s

where the problem lies. It’s

more about attracting other

events to the city that we

need,” he said.

But Weedons Residents’

Association secretary Gary Doyle

said he wouldn’t support the idea

until knew more.

“I’m opposed to contributing

to anything before I

know the costs of involved,”

he said.

Mayor Sam Broughton

said the district council

needs more clarity from the

city council on the stadium

project before speaking to

ratepayers.

“We haven’t discussed it with

anyone in Selwyn.”

Russell

Dalzell

Gary

Doyle

Recently, Minister for Greater

Christchurch Regeneration Megan

Woods said the city council

and the Crown had fast-tracked

work on the stadium to the

point where planning can

start.

Concerns have previously

been raised by district

councillors over the lack of

communication surrounding

how the stadium will be

funded. District councillor

Craig Watson told the

Selwyn Times if ratepayers are

expected to fund the stadium,

they need to be part of the

conversation from the beginning.

“I am not happy to find

out at the 11th hour our

ratepayers are going to be

hit with a rate if we are not

consulted on it,” he said.

Kirwee rates increase more than Rolleston

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

KIRWEE RESIDENTS want

to know why their rates may

increase more than is planned

for a large township like

Rolleston.

The district council’s Long

Term Plan 2018-2028 is

proposing a rate increase of 6.6

per cent in

Kirwee, while

Rolleston’s

may go up by

2.6 per cent.

It comes as

the district

council

plans for a

district-wide

Sam

Broughton

rate for its

community

centres, halls

and reserves as part of the LTP.

All ratepayers would pay a

standard fee of $100 a year ¬

increasing to $220 by 2027/28.

Residents say it is unfair to

pay for a rate that isn’t going to

benefit the Kirwee community.

The hall does not receive

any funding from the district

council other than covering

insurance.

Kirwee Community

Committee chairman Graeme

Roberts said the township seems

to be paying a lot at the moment

QUESTION: Kirwee residents have expressed concern over paying a district-wide hall rate

when their hall is privately-owned.

and the rate is going to be of no

benefit to the community.

“There is a lot of extra cost

but we are not getting anything

extra in the Kirwee area and yet

we try fight for it,” he said.

Mr Roberts said projects,

including the widening of

Courtenay Rd and redeveloping

the Kirwee Recreation Reserve

,need to get underway.

The Kirwee Community

Hall, located on High St, is

owned by the Courtenay A &

P Association and managed by

the Kirwee Community Hall

Committee.

The hall’s secretary Adrienne

Begg said, as a ratepayer, she

does not agree with the district

council’s hall rate and has made

submissions to the Long Term

Plan.

Mayor Sam Broughton said it

is trying to ensure there is equal

access for everyone to councilowned

facilities and funding

across the district is the best

way to do it. “I can’t comment

if it is right or wrong but that

is what our proposal is and we

will make a final decision once

we have taken into account the

communities’ view,” he said.

Meanwhile the hall committee

is calling for more support from

residents to prevent it from

folding and reverting back to the

A and P Association. An AGM

meeting was held on Monday to

make the community aware of

the hall’s importance.

Plan for RSA

in Rolleston

gets backing

• By Anan Zaki

TEMPLETON RSA members

have thrown their weight

behind a new association in

Rolleston.

Members voted in favour of

providing financial support to

a new RSA facility in Rolleston,

said Templeton president John

Rae.

However, the level of financial

support was yet to be decided.

“There are no specific plans

purely because we now have to

complete the feasibility study

we were originally commissioned

to do. We want to open a

new RSA club, that’s the intention,”

Mr Rae said.

He said the club would work

to ensure the survival of the

existing Templeton RSA club.

“We want to make sure the

Templeton club doesn’t become

lost in the process . . . as most

of our members come from the

Rolleston and Burnham areas,”

Mr Rae said.

He said the RSA was looking

at two possible locations for the

Rolleston facility but would not

confirm the exact sites.

Maddie goes

back to school

• By Emily O’Connell

WEST MELTON teen Maddie Collins

has returned to St Margaret’s College

after an 18-month break due to health

problems.

Maddie, 14, was too sick to attend

school but has been doing better following

a successful kidney transplant in

January.

Her mother, Sarah Manson-Collins,

said Maddie was enjoying being back at

school but was finding it tiring.

Mrs Manson-Collins said Maddie will

attend school Mondays to Thursdays,

with Fridays put aside for ongoing hospital

appointments.

She said they are keeping an eye on

Maddie but are pleased her kidney biopsy

in March showed no sign of rejection.

Maddie and her family were told on

January 16 their five-year wait for a kidney

match had been found.

They flew from Christchurch to

Auckland the following day and Maddie

underwent an initial operation and then

a second operation to reposition the

kidney hours later at Starship Children’s

Maddie received a kidney transplant

from her father Adam Collins five years

With only a two per cent chance of

finding a donor match in New Zealand,

the family did not expect to find another

kidney in the country.

Mrs Manson-Collins said Maddie

has a lot of exciting events coming up,

including speaking at the Canterbury

Loretta Sloan

Doyleston designer wowing people

Doyleston designer

Loretta Sloan has had

her garments showcased

at the World of Wearable

Art competition six times

since 2010. She spoke

to Georgia O’Connor-

Harding about her work

at Leeston’s Lakeland Art

Gallery and her business

Dreaded Yarn

Tell me about your work at

the Lakeland Art Gallery?

I am a volunteer and

committee member there. I

think it is a great place for the

community to support local

artists so it gives them a chance

to showcase their creations. I

have had some wearable arts

and other felted pieces of art on

display there as well.

Tell me about the business

Dreaded Yarn which you run?

I decided to set it up because I

found there is a huge gap in the

market place for hand-made,

boutique, chunky yarn so I

decided to create my own. Not

only do I sell yarn, I do knitting

workshops and workshops to

teach people how to create their

own novelty chunky yarn. I have

got a selection of super-sized

needles made locally. I also teach

felting. I am a textile artist, and

as well as also teaching felting,

I have expanded on to creating

Dreaded Yarn.

How long have you been

taking part in the World of

Wearable Art competition in

Wellington?

I have been entering WOW

since 2010. I have had six

garments accepted for the WOW

show. Currently I have a garment

on display at the national WOW

Museum and Nelson classic car

collection from the 2017 show.

What has been your greatest

achievement at WOW?

Just getting on stage is an

achievement in its own. It is

worldwide. Hundreds of people

enter from all round the world

so just getting on there is an

achievement in itself. I did have

a winner back in 2011 when I got

third in the children’s section of

the wearable arts competition for

one of my creations.

What has been your favourite

creation you have made?

There is no favourite

because they are all different.

I like working and testing the

boundaries and working with

different materials.

Are you allowed to say what

you are designing this year?

You can’t. Wool is my main

thing I work with so it will be

something either felted, weaved,

knitted or could be with a

completely different median.

What do you think about art

in Ellesmere?

There are so many creative and

talented people in the area. I am

privileged to have met so many

of them myself.

I think having the gallery

in Lincoln, Darfield and

now Leeston, it is supporting

those people and giving them

somewhere to showcase their

designs and art. I think it is

important to nurture that.

Do you have a favourite

I love David Lloyd’s work.

He works a lot with copper

it is cool, quirky. He lives in

Blanche Fryer who works a

lot with clay and ceramic. She

makes awesome stuff as well,

they are such a talented couple.

I have always been creative

right from a young age. Luckily,

I worked at Ashford Handicrafts

Ltd for about 13 years. Having

worked there for 13 years, I

learned to spin, weave, felt

everything textile. I started

there after school when I was

feel when I am creating. I

Is there a growing interest

It is growing. Kim Strange

started the Art Couture NZ’s

wearable arts competition show

in Tai Tapu last year. I was one

of the judges there. It went really

well. It was good for the area and

it gives people the opportunity to

get involved and be creative. I am

If I have a garment back in time,

I will have last year’s garment on

display at the competition.

Nightglow funds may go to Hororata centre

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FUNDS RAISED from

Hororata’s successful hot air

balloon evening are likely to

kick-start the building of a new

community centre.

It is planned the money raised

from The Hororata Night Glow

will go towards the start of a

large fundraising campaign for

the new Hororata Community

Centre.

The district council is currently

proposing to allocate $4.6

million in its Long Term Plan to

build a new facility in 2023/24.

It is expected $2 million is to

be raised by the community,

while $700,000 will be put forward

from development contributions.

Consultation on the LTP

closed on Friday. But Hororata

Community Trust executive

officer Cindy Driscoll said if

the community centre project

doesn’t go ahead, there are other

major projects in the community

the funds will go towards.

“This money is not going to

disappear it will be invested in

the community and the community

will have a say in what that

is,” she said.

It is uncertain yet how much

was raised from the evening.

Balloonists from all over the

country descended into Selwyn

for the event on Sunday.

During a week of beautiful

weather, the balloons delighted

communities as they flew en

masse.

Mrs Driscoll said in spite of the

evening having to be postponed

by a day due to bad weather, they

had a lot of ingenuity and were

ready to deal with whatever was

thrown at the event.

“I am so, so proud of how we

did it . . . we greeted everyone

with a smile and no one got

disheartened when we had to

postpone,” she said.

Mrs Driscoll said a key challenge

was dealing with the

wetness of the grounds and she

was impressed to see how the

Hororata Domain coped with

large numbers of traffic.

About 10,000 people were

treated to the fun-filled festival

and performance from 12 balloons.

More than 150 people including

a balloon crew volunteered

for the event.

Mrs Driscoll said it was also

“special” having the balloonists

fly in honour of Anzac Day.

While it is planned the event

will be held again, it is uncertain

when that will be.

The next big upcoming event

will be the Hororata Highland

Games on November 10 at the

Hororata Domain.

It is one of the largest Scottish

Festivals in the Southern

Hemisphere.

Water access concerns for rural fire brigades

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RURAL FIRE brigades are at

odds with Fire and Emergency

New Zealand over how they will

source their water in the future.

The Sheffield, Hororata and

Springfield brigades are calling

for more communication over

what alternative water supplies

will be available in the future

and how they will be factored

into the Central Plains Water

Scheme.

It comes as more water races

are set to close in Malvern, with

the district council approving

the closure of 10.9km of water

races in March.

Central Plains is expected to

be fully established in the next

12 months.

But FENZ has guaranteed

alternative water supplies will be

made available.

FENZ principal rural fire

officer Darrin Wood said he

CHANGE: Rural fire brigades are concerned how they will be

factored into the Central Plains Water Scheme as more water

races close.

can ensure provisions will be

made in Central Plains to put in

hydrants.

Mr Woods said Central Plains

has made its water races available

for helicopter dipping operations

and fire brigades have belly tanks

available.

His views were backed by Canterbury

area commander Dave

Berry who said he was happy

with communication from Central

Plains and has previously

met with the brigades over the

issue.

But Springfield chief fire officer

Grant Williams said there needs

to be more reassurance as the

brigades have not heard when

the hydrants will be established.

Sheffield senior firefighter

Graeme Piper said there has

been difficulty in getting Central

Plains representatives and the

district council together to discuss

the supplies.

“We would like more information

from them. It is pretty

important for us,” he said.

Hororata senior station officer

Roger Parsons said it was asked

to write plans on where it wanted

the hydrants located in Central

Fire rages, homes at risk

Plains but have heard nothing

since.

He said he has told FENZ

“heaps of times” that Hororata’s

only two hydrants are 5km away

from the township.

But Kirwee chief fire officer

Stuart Jones said the scheme is

still being completed and it is

up to FENZ to decide where the

hydrants go, not the brigades.

A Central Plains spokeswoman

told Selwyn Times it is

not engaging directly with the

regional fire brigades and FENZ

will communicate with them

once requirements are finalised.

She said it is important to

keep in mind Central Plains is a

private scheme and helping the

brigades it is something they are

offering to assist with.

Event raises $10k for quarry fight

• By Emily O’Connell

LAUGHTER REALLY was

the best medicine last Saturday

night as residents raised more

than $10,000 for the fight

against a proposed quarry near

Templeton.

The comedic event, which was

held in the Rolleston Community

Centre, had broadcaster Gary

McCormick and Invercargill

Mayor Tim Shadbolt entertain

to the crowd of more than 250

people for about three hours.

There has been widespread

opposition to the planned

quarry on Dawsons, Curraghs

and Jones Rds. Fulton Hogan

says the quarry, which would be

on a 170ha section of land, will

be there for up to 40 years.

Residents have voiced concerns

about the potential health

risks, water issues and devaluing

of properties.

Laughter Is The Best Medicine

will go to the Templeton Residents’

Association for ongoing

costs including hiring experts.

Joanne McMaster, from

the Templeton Residents’

Association – No Quarry’s subcommittee,

organised the event.

She said the night of comedy

had the audience “in stitches”

from start to finish.

“Although this was a great

start to the fundraising activities,

it’s a far cry from the $250,000-

$300,000 we may require to

fight Fulton Hogan’s proposed

170ha quarry on our doorstep,”

Miss McMaster said.

She said it’s a “daunting exercise”

going up against Fulton

Hogan.

“[Fulton Hogan] has every

resource at its fingertips and we

are working tirelessly to oppose

it without any funding while juggling

our families and work commitments,”

Miss McMaster said.

Fulton Hogan recently said in

any resource consent application

to the Selwyn District Council

or Environment Canterbury

before July.

Furry friends may get pool event

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Emily O’Connell

YOUR FOUR-LEGGED, furry

friend may be able to join you in

the pool next summer for a swim

if a new event gets the green

light.

The Selwyn District Council’s

audit and risk subcommittee

is considering

running a ‘Dogs

in Togs’ event

after receiving

requests from

residents.

This was

included in the

Grant Miller

community

pools summer

season summary 2017/18 report,

which was presented to the

subcommittee last week.

District councillor Grant

Miller said the community pool

manager is going to investigate

the possibilities and see whether

there would be enough demand

for the event.

“We’re open to new ideas . . .

if people enjoy it and it doesn’t

effect the safety and well-being

of other patrons,” he said.

At its meeting, the

subcommittee endorsed a

schedule of improvements for

community pools in preparation

PROPOSAL: The Selwyn District Council’s audit and risk subcommittee is considering running a

‘Dogs in Togs’ event in the area this summer.

for the next summer season.

Improvements included health

and safety training sessions

for key holders, reviewing the

community pool shift structure

and installing new stairs and

repairing the Southbridge Pool

hydroslide.

The Selwyn District Council

supports the operational

management of six community

pools across the district.

Three of the pools – in

Darfield, Southbridge and

Sheffield – are managed by

district council lifeguards.

And the remaining three

– Halkett, Killinchy and

Leeston – are supervised by

trained volunteers rather than

lifeguards. However, a district

council aquatics officer monitors

the pools plant room.

The report showed operating

costs for the provision of

lifeguards at community pools

was $23,000 over budget due to

the decision to lifeguard Sheffield

Pool over summer.

“This unfavourable variance

was offset by savings in the

expenditure on Prebbleton

Pool and other savings,” the

community pools summer

season report read.

The report also showed the

Darfield Swimming Pool issued

49 season passes during summer,

and had 8085 daily admissions.

Southbridge issued 44 passes,

and Sheffield 40. The Halkett

and Leeston pools both issued 25

keys and Killinchy 22. The report

said there are 15 school pools in

operation is the district and all

but Lincoln High School offer

community access.

Burnham Military Camp also

has a swimming pool but it has

restricted public access.

The Selwyn District Council

offers $1000 of maintenance

funding per school pool each

year. However, the pool must

be available for community use

after school hours.

The Selwyn District Council would like to thank all of

our Gold sponsors for their generous support.

Are ‘townies’ and farmers really so different?

Rolleston

resident

and Lincoln

University

student Alice

Watson talks

about the

urban-rural divide

CHANGES: Rolleston resident

Alice Watson questions whether

the urban-rural divide exists.

JUST WHAT are we going to do

about this oft-lamented urbanrural

divide? Is it even a thing?

With the growing pressure to

better the quality of the land and

water we share, the questions are

endless.

Perhaps at its heart, the issue

can be attributed to a lack of

understanding and respect for

people involved in fairly different

ways of life.

In recent years, increasing

awareness of the state of our

waterbodies has seen ceaseless

pointing of fingers in all

directions.

Decreasing the environmental

impact of farming has become

an imperative for both urban

and rural peoples and the small

proportion still in denial need

to wake up to reality smartly.

Fortunately, most have accepted

the need for change and are

working hard to improve the

environmental sustainability of

their operations.

I am yet to encounter the

farmer who doesn’t want to

swim in clean water and grow

healthy, happy stock.

Perhaps we need to take time

to appreciate the work that is

actually being done; a century

of pollution by those who knew

no better can’t be reversed

overnight.

In light of this, we are

fortunate to have access to so

many waterways and biking/

walking tracks in the Selwyn

district, many of which allow us

to enjoy time moving through

farmed land.

It is wonderful that most

townsfolk feel the need to care

for this land just as farmers

do; such shared values are

what help bond and drive our

communities, rural or urban.

However, ideas and rules as

to how farmland should be

managed must be shared and

implemented with respect and

consideration.

We need to connect with, not

just communicate to, those for

whom farming is a livelihood

and they must be able to balance

environmental sustainability

with the viability of their farm

businesses.

Likewise, rural people need to

learn to understand that our land

is precious to urban dwellers

also, and to work in with these

‘townies’.

Without accepting the need

to quit pointing fingers, and

by acknowledging our mutual

values and combining our

efforts, there is hope for the

water, land and community goals

we all need to strive for.

ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS: The district council is set to lease its land at Pines Recovery Park

for a tyre pyrolysis plant.

Pat Palmer responds

plant which will be

So Selwyn

councillors,

especially

Malcolm Lyall

Hasson from

forgotten

the noxious

emissions to

air – in plain english, stench –

from the Meadow Mushrooms

composting plant at Prebbleton?

Three quarters of New Zealand’s

worn out tyres come from

north of the King Country.

Let them stay there, and they

You said:

we all knew that

from the start.

Why would you

put chlorine in

our beautiful

water and ruin it? Also without

thinking of the consequences

for some people and, yes, it is

a chemical. Council needs to

use commonsense and not ‘just

maybe we could get sick like a

town up north’.

Michael Lowe – Why not?

Backyard Critters

Long-legged tales of venomous spider false

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

HARMLESS: Sometimes

called daddy long legs,

the cellar spider is not

venomous.

A HARMLESS long-legged

spider found in the low-light

areas of ceiling corners is

the cellar spider (pholcus

phalangioides).

Sometimes called daddy long

legs, this spider has a 4-10mm

long, grey-brown, bean-shaped

body with very long, skinny legs.

They are usually found in webs

along with the remains of their

prey, which includes flies and

moths, tightly coiled in silk.

The spider arrived in New

Zealand during European

colonisation and has spread

down the country to about mid-

Canterbury – its likely minimum

thermal limit. Female cellar

spiders sometimes carry an egg

sac in their palps to transport or

protect them.

When threatened, the spiders

often gyrate in their webs, possibly

in an attempt to confuse their

enemies.

A common myth is that this

spider has the most poisonous

venom.

The truth is that there is no

scientific evidence to support

this notion, so rest-assured, they

will be safe house guests and may

even capture a mosquito or two.

Should Selwyn ratepayers help pay for city stadium?

View point

Barry Clarke

HAS SELWYN District Mayor

Sam Broughton committed

political suicide or simply come

up with the logical answer to how

the planned covered stadium in

Christchurch needs to be funded.

I’m referring to the Selwyn

District Council’s submission at

the city council’s Long Term Plan

hearing last week, delivered by

Broughton.

Selwyn says ratepayers in

districts outside of Christchurch

should help pay – and why

shouldn’t they? The stadium will

be a regional facility, one that will

be used by people from Selwyn,

and the Waimakaririri and Hurunui

districts.

Sports matches, rock concerts

100%

CAPITAL GAIN

TO THE RESIDENT

and other events attract people

not only from the city, but all

across the region. In Otago, ratepayers

from the various authorities

contributed to the Forsyth

Barr Stadium in Dunedin.

The population of the Selwyn

and Waimak districts is about

123,000, a third of the city’s. And

those two districts are among the

fastest growing in New Zealand.

But Selwyn and Broughton’s

broad-minded view has been

cautiously received by Waimak

and Hurunui.

Hurunui Mayor Winton Dalley

said the stadium would have

some benefit to his region. But

with a population of 13,000, they

were already stretched.

FORK OUT: Selwyn ratepayers could be asked to help pay for the construction of Christchurch’s

planned sports and events arena.

Waimak’s Mayor David

Ayers said they had never been

consulted about the stadium, and

his community would need to

have input.

$1,000 FULLY

REFUNDABLE

DEPOSIT

He was quoted as saying: “I’m

not saying no, but it’s got to be

done in the right way and so far it

hasn’t been.’’

Broughton may get the same

vibe from his ratepayers and

constituents.

That may come back to bite

him at next year’s local body

elections.

August 2018, where all nominees will be celebrated and the winners in each of the 10 categories

will be announced.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the awards are an opportunity to celebrate local success and share

our stories with one another.

Selwyn is full of people doing great work, not for glory but, because they believe in what they are

doing. It’s good to recognise and highlight these achievements as models and examples of our

“I encourage you to think about who is deserving of this recognition and nominate them.”

The award categories open for nomination this year are: Arts, Culture & Heritage, Community

Service, Environmental, Innovation Excellence (new award for 2018), Large Business, Small

Business, Sport, Tourism, and Young Achievers.

For the first time, a People’s Choice Award will be presented. This is an opportunity for the

community to get even more involved in the awards. Voting for People’s Choice will take place on

the Selwyn Awards website from Friday 22 June.

The closing date for nominations is Friday 15 June. Nominees will be assessed by independent

and expert judges in each category across a range of areas. In 2016, a total of 55 nominations

were received.

The 2016 Award winners were: Agri-Business – Gladfield Malt Ltd, Arts & Culture – Amelia Dunbar,

Give back to your community

The Council is seeking volunteers to become part of the Civil Defence Welfare Team.

The Welfare Team will be a team of volunteers trained to open and run a Welfare Centre and provide

welfare support to the community during emergency events. Roles may include registering and

identifying needs of people coming into the welfare centre.

Volunteers will support people in an emergency, and be on the frontline of the response.

We are looking for people who are committed, empathetic to others, can show initiative, have good

communication skills, and be confident working in an emergency setting.

On Tuesday 22 May, 7pm, we are holding a public open night at the Council Chambers in Rolleston.

This will involve us giving an overview of welfare volunteering, including requirements of training, time

commitment, and what their role will be in an emergency response.

Volunteers will need to be available in an emergency, including potentially overnight work. This is a good

opportunity for people to give back to their community. All volunteers will be trained, police checked

and tasked to volunteer anywhere in the Selwyn district.

For more information contact our emergency management team on 347 2800.

High level of community interest

in 10-year plan

Consultation on the Council’s Long-Term Plan 2018-2028 has

closed – with hundreds of Selwyn residents taking the opportunity

to share their view on proposals for the next 10 years.

Initial returns show that by the time consultation closed last Friday,

more than 400 formal submissions had been received.

More than 430 responses were also received to an online survey on

the key proposals, and 1150 people completed a quick poll on the

Council’s Long-Term Plan consultation site.

Selwyn mayor Sam Broughton says the level of engagement with

the community over the Council’s plans has been positive.

“We’re pleased that so many people have taken the time to read about

our proposals and think about what it means for them,” he says.

“There have been some thought-provoking topics this year, such as

the discussion about what approach the Council should take in the

future to ensure the safety of our community water supplies.

“People have also been keen to share their views on major projects

we’re proposing, such as new indoor sports and aquatic facilities,

as well as new community centres in our townships and cycleways

across the district.

“All of the submissions and comments will be presented to

councillors and will be taken into consideration when we make

decisions on the plan.”

Submissions will be publicly available on the Council website from

Friday 18 May. Public hearings, for submitters who want to present

their submissions in person, will be held on Wednesday 23 and

Thursday 24 May, and the Council will deliberate on submissions a

week later.

The final Long-Term Plan 2018-2028 is expected to be adopted in

late June.

West Melton rider on world GP stage

SPORTS

• by Jacob Page

WEST MELTON motorcycle

racer Hamish Macdonald is the

first Kiwi in 15 years to take

on the world’s best riders at the

World Enduro GP.

The 19-year-old finished

fourth in the youth 125cc category

in his debut event in Spain

last week.

The World Enduro GP is an

off-road motorcycle racing competition

with multiple rounds.

“This event is quite different

to our enduros at home where

we ride a lot of single tracks and

head into the bush,” Macdonald

said.

“The GP rounds are a series of

taped special tests, enduro test,

extreme test and cross test with

trail time in between,” he said.

“The Spanish round was two

190km days, with the special

tests completed three times each

day.”

Hamish is not short on

national titles or international

racing experience, but said the

opportunity to race a few rounds

of the Enduro GP was too good

to pass up.

“I’ve been racing enduros since

I was 13-years-old,” he said.

“When I was 15 we started

competing in the New Zealand

nationals with good results and

have taken the New Zealand

class title every year since.

“I have raced overseas at The

Red Bull Romaniacs, the toughest

extreme Enduro, and placed

third in silver class.”

TRAIL BLAZER: West

Melton’s Hamish MacDonald

is the first Kiwi in 15 years to

compete in the World Enduro

GP after he finished fourth in

his debut in Spain.

PHOTO ENDURO GP

Macdonald said he was thrilled

to be creating history 15 years

after the last Kiwi.

“I found out recently that

(fellow Kiwi) Paul Whibley had

competed over here and I am

with the same team so I’m very

honoured to be following on his

path,” Macdonald said.

The teenager said the trip was

about testing himself against

strong competition as he looks to

progress his fledgling career.

“This trip is giving me a inside

look into the European side of

racing, the teams are huge and

very well set up,” he said.

Maybe if I do well, it could

lead to a spot on a team.

“I had another round in Portugal

(at the) weekend and will also

compete in two rounds of the

European Enduro,” Macdonald

said.

“I am still a youth in this sport

but the ultimate would be world

champion.”

‘Missed opportunity’ for Lincoln

SPORTS

TALL TIMBER: Lincoln lock Mark Stanbury soars high

against Ohoka.

PHOTOS: KAREN CASEY

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN MISSED an opportunity

to go equal top of their section

in the Luisettti Seeds Country

Combined division one rugby

competition after a 22-10 loss to

Ohoka on Saturday.

Coach Dale Eathorne described

the game as “a missed opportunity.”

“Our decision-making let us

down at crucial times,” he said. “We

made a few poor defensive reads

which cost us.”

With All Blacks prop Joe Moody

in the scrum, Lincoln had dominance

in that area but Eathorne said

the lineout was 50/50 at best.

“We will have to work on accuracy

because we just panicked at

the wrong time and it’s ended up

costing us.”

Eathorne said it was always a

thrill to have Moody back in the

team environment.

“Everyone enjoys playing with an

All Black in club rugby,” he said.

Lincoln now sits fourth in section

A, five points behind the three leaders

– Waihora, Celtic and Saracens.

Celtic and Saracens both enjoyed

wins in the absence of Waihora who

has a bye, to keep the pressure on at

the top. In section B, Darfield and

Prebbleton are locked at the top of

the table after contrasting victories

over the weekend.

Prebbleton put 52 unanswered

points on Hornby while Darfield

was made to work hard for a 39-37

Men

“The question of the power of men has been very topical

in the past year with changes in political leadership,

#MeToo and other associated movements. In images

used in the media of significant male politicians or male

professional leaders these men more often than not

wear a suit albeit maybe without a tie these days. The

suits these men wear convey power. Do these men wear

suits because they are a symbol of power? Do corporate

woman feel they have to emulate men in the way they

dress to achieve power? Why in fact is there such a

historical difference in the clothes of men and woman?

Do men have an advantage in society because there

exists this type of uniform that gives them an unspoken

air of authority that there is not something equivalent of

for woman?

The history of menswear suits, over-coats, trousers,

shirts and ties can be traced back several centuries

and remain very traditional and recognisable in the 21st

century. The shape of the lapel, the size of the tie, the

quality of the material and the way they are produced

may have changed but the form and its associations are

immediately identifiable. Sombre colours of greys and

black suits still dominate. These suits are trans-seasonal.

It is a code of dress that is universally recognisable. By its

continued widespread use it isn’t likely to change. These

suits are not necessarily worn for comfort so are they

still in such dominant use because of the symbols they

convey?

Here seventy men are dressed in traditional suits then

they deviate playing with shape and form, eccentricity,

personality and individualism also drawing at times on

more feminine influences of colour and pattern. It is an

unresolved exploration of menswear and its implications

in contemporary society.” Gill Hay.

Gill attended Canterbury University School of Fine Arts

in the early 1980s and has been exhibiting widely in New

Zealand and overseas for the past 20 years. She lives in

Lyttelton where she has a studio in her home overlooking

the inner harbour.

Gardening

COLOUR: Shirley and peony poppies look striking with bright fluffy petals.

Popular poppies

• By Henri Ham

POPPIES ARE always one of

the most popular seedlings we

sell. And it’s not hard to see

why. They’re very pretty, they

grow easily, and they make

good cut flowers.

Some of the varieties available

are Shirley, Anzac and

peony. A lot of gardeners are

fans of peony poppies. Their

many fluffy layers of petals

look striking – they’re a great

alternative if you don’t get

enough frosts to grow true

peonies.

Shirley poppies are also

lovely and have a very

delicate look to them. But my

favourite variety of poppy

would be Anzac – particularly

planted en masse. They are a

very special sight to see in a

garden.

Other popular varieties are

oriental and Iceland.

When you’ve got your poppy

plants look around the garden

for a sunny, well-drained spot.

Somewhere near the house is

good if you get any wind as it

will provide protection.

Once you’re ready to plant,

simply dig a small hole and

plant each seedling around

30cm apart.

SPECIAL SIGHT: Anzac poppies look spectacular when planted en masse.

Next give them a water to

help them get established. After

that they shouldn’t require

too much watering. If you do

water them be careful not to

overhead water as the pressure

of the water might squash

them.

Your poppies will start to

put on their pretty display of

flowers in around six to eight

weeks. Remember to remove

the flower heads when they die

(deadhead) to prolong their

flowering.

For the love

of coriander

CORIANDER IS a love it or hate it type of

plant.

In fact, I can’t really think of any other

herb or vegetable that divides people as

much. And it can also be quite a tricky herb

to grow as it loves to bolt (head to seed),

which probably doesn’t help its reputation

with its detractors.

But as someone who falls into the love

coriander camp, I think it’s a plant every

kitchen or vegetable garden should have. So

here are my top tips for successful coriander

growing.

Firstly, plant it now. While you can grow

coriander for most of the year, now during

autumn and winter when the weather is

cooler, is the perfect time to plant – especially

if you find it difficult to grow. The steady,

cool weather will prevent it from bolting.

Coriander will grow well in a pot or in the

garden. But if you do plant in a pot make

sure it’s a deep one and pour in some good

quality potting mix.

If you’re growing in the garden, at this

time of the year I recommend looking for

somewhere with full sun. Coriander doesn’t

like damp or humid conditions. Next ensure

the soil is aerated and free-draining by

digging over the soil and even dig in some

potting mix or compost if required.

Next, mound up the soil and plant a

seedling on top – this will help ensure the

soil is free-draining. Give it a water and then

regularly water it in the morning. This will

allow the water to dry off during the day and

prevent disease.

Vehicle needs attention, then Jones

Road Auto can relieve the stress of the

busy work commute or school drop off,

while your vehicle is off the road.

while you wait. With a dedicated WOF

lane you can pull up and get your

vehicle checked at any time, including

Saturday mornings. Wait in the warm

your car is checked, once again making

it an efficient and convenient service.

With five full time mechanics, a WOF

specialist and an expert service team in

the office, Jones Road Auto staff is able

SELWYN TIMES

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Country contemporary

fusion

Today Homes’ show home at 578 East Maddisons

Road in Faringdon is a fantastic example of the quality

construction and finishing for which this multi-award

winning, locally owned building company is well known.

Over the last 30 years, Today Homes has built more

than 2000 homes in Canterbury. That kind of longevity

is reassuring in an environment where reputation means

everything. Today Homes has a team of experienced

and knowledgeable new home consultants, and works

with trusted suppliers, designers, builders, and support

staff to bring beautiful homes to the market. First home,

architecturally designed showpiece, large family dwelling,

or investment property, Today Homes can build the house

you want.

‘The Maddison’ is a home that maximises indoor

outdoor flow. Many house plans make the same claim, but

few achieve it with such style. With three very spacious

bedrooms (each with large wardrobes) plus a library/

study, this 221m2 home’s unique design is the perfect

showcase of a lifestyle property. “It is,” says New Home

Consultant, Angela Porter, “a fusion of contemporary

and country.” Its “timeless quality” with classic Linea look

and high end design and build is aimed at the discerning

buyer.

Sliding door access to the outdoors from the lounge,

kitchen and dining/living room, or to a central courtyard

from the living/dining room, hall, and master bedroom,

‘The Maddison’ typifies a home for lovers of outdoor

living.

The master bedroom truly is a grand size. It connects

to a bright, airy walk-around wardrobe with vast

amounts of drawer, shelf, and hanging space. The en suite

incorporates double basins, fully tiled toilet and shower

with conventional and rain heads.

The family bathroom features a free-standing bath,

shower, and visually stunning tiling which carries

through to the separate toilet.

The kitchen gives a subtle nod to the modern country

style possibilities with the colour palette and cabinet

handles. These, as with any of the house’s features, can

be personalised to suit tastes and needs. With a central

island and generous walk-in pantry, and easy access to

outdoors, the kitchen is an entertainer’s dream.

‘The Maddison’ is designed to capture all-day sun, and

is a beautiful example of just one of the plans in Today

Homes’ extensive range of plans to suit all desires and

most budgets. There are build packages from $460K

to architecturally designed masterpieces such as ‘The

Merivale’, a show home now open in Prestons Park,

Burwood.

Today Homes’ show homes in Selwyn are in

Faringdon at 576 and 578 East Maddisons Road,

Rolleston. They are open daily from 12 til 4, and all of

Today Homes’ plans are available for viewing online at
