GRANDPARENTS are helping

The Grandparents Reading

provide the children with opportunities

for practising their

reading.”

She said it also gives pupils

the opportunity to form positive

relationships with the grandparent

they read with.

Miss Sutherland said the idea

for the programme came from

other schools.

“We were thrilled by the number

of offers of help, and were

able to set up the programme

across two teams,” she said.

Pupils like it when grandparents

read a story to them at the

end of the session, she said

“It provides children with

a model of how good reading

sounds. Some of the grandparents

even bring their own

special books along with them

to share.”

However, Miss Sutherland

District

escapes

blanket

use of

chlorine

– for now

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MOST OF Selwyn has escaped

having chlorine put into its

drinking water.

The district council has backtracked

on its original plan to

chlorinate the district’s water

supplies.

The Canterbury District Health

Board had endorsed that proposal.

However, parts of Malvern

have not escaped the permanent

chlorination.

Pipe breaks, backflow, illegal

connections and reservoir failures

in the supplies had led to

the permanent chlorination of

the Sheffield -Waddington and

Malvern Hills Hartleys Rd water

supplies.

The district council confirmed

it will proceed in its plans to

chlorinate the supplies in July and

August.

It has prompted backlash

from affected residents in the

Long Term Plan 2018-2018 submissions.

THE CHLORINATION drum is starting

to beat and I don’t like the sound of it.

Parts of Malvern will be chlorinated

(see page 1) and the district council is ready

to move should other parts of the district

need attention.

Star Media’s office (publisher of the Selwyn Times) is in Addington.

The water coming out of the tap in the cafe sometimes

smells like a swimming pool. I don’t drink it.

I live in Selwyn and continue to enjoy great tasting water from

the tap. But for how long?

The district council is to be applauded for backtracking on its

original plan to blanket chlorinate across the district.

It is a sensible decision but what happens in the future may not

be so rosy.

But you have to feel sorry now for those affected in Malvern.

SKATE PARK

An upgrade to install new steps, a

path, and seating at the West View

Skate Park in Darfield is expected

to be completed by the end of next

month. Consideration was given to

installing a ramp instead of steps on

the far end of the skate park. But a

Malvern Community Board report

said the ramp was not favoured

because if skateboarders lost control,

they could end up “colliding” with

patrons of the Darfield public toilets.

BASKETBALL COURT

The Springfield Township Committee

has requested a new basketball

court be built in the area as part of

their submission to the Long Term

said there are more than 30 young

people aged between 10 to 15 in

Springfield with no real area designed

court would go a long way to rectifying

this as it could double up to be

used as a skate park area,” it said.

Big ticket items approved in

At its Long Term Plan

deliberations last week,

the district council

approved several key

projects in the area.

The decisions will be

finalised at its meeting

on June 20. Emily

O’Connell reports

Selwyn Aquatic Centre

extension

The district council has approved

an extension of the

Selwyn Aquatic Centre. It was

agreed a 25m pool, as opposed to

a 50m pool, would be included

in the extension. As well as the

$9.3 million pool, the extension

will include a $1.1 million cafe

and courtyard and a $1.6 million

fitness and well-being space.

Weedons Residents’ Association

secretary Gary Doyle believes

the decision to have another 25m

pool rather than a 50m pool is

“stupid and short-sighted.” However,

he says he wasn’t surprised.

Indoor sports complex at

Foster Park

The district council has approved

a proposal to build a $21

million indoor sports facility

PLANS: The district council will extend the Selwyn Aquatic

Centre but Weedons Residents’ Association secretary Gary

Doyle (inset) says it is “stupid” the extension does not include a

50m pool.

at Foster Park in Rolleston. The

proposal includes four indoor

courts and four covered courts

for sports such as netball, tennis,

basketball and futsal, a reception,

administration and event

management areas, as well as an

indoor mezzanine walkway.

Water race rating review

The district council has approved

a proposal to adopt

a revised water race rating

structure. It has been operating

a water race system in parts of

the district for about 130 years,

supplying water to rural properties

primarily for livestock. The

new rating structure provides

three standardised rating factors

to replace the existing 10 rating

factors.

Community grants

scheme

The district council has approved

the establishment of

a community grants scheme

which will provide new, contestable

grant funding of $140,000.

IMPROVEMENT: With the Prebbleton Hall struggling to meet

the needs of the community, the district council has approved

a proposal to build a larger, more flexible facility.

The scheme is intended to be

available district-wide to assist

community-focused initiatives

which are undertaken by notfor-profit

groups and clubs and

communities of interest working

for the well-being of residents in

the district.

New community facilities

in Hororata, Leeston and

Prebbleton

The district council has approved

new community facilities

in several areas. The Hororata

facility will be a modern, multipurpose

facility, and is proposed

to be located on Hororata

Reserve. The district council is

proposing to allocate an initial

budget of $4.6 million for it. It

is also proposing to construct a

new facility in Leeston at a cost

of $6 million. The proposed

Prebbleton facility’s location

is still to be confirmed, but it

would be a hub for community

activity.

our Gold sponsors for their generous support.

The CDHB supported the

Darfield as having the best

“It’s the old story, if it is

CALLS ARE being made

for better car parking at

schools in the district.

Greendale School teacher

aide Jan Douglas wrote

a letter to the Malvern

Community Board about

the issue, saying there is

currently six spaces for

vehicles at the school and

with up to 13 staff, it’s

“unacceptable.”

She said the road is “too

narrow” for parking and

so, some staff have to park

on the grass and in winter,

their vehicles get stuck.

Community board

member Karen Meares

said it’s a problem many

schools face in the district.

She said the “parking

itself is not an issue it is the

state of the roadside kerbs

and the puddles and the

muddiness that is developing

in these parking areas.”

Mrs Meares said Hororata

and Glentunnel Schools

have problems with their

car parks also.

Hororata School principal

Martyn Gameson

made a submission on the

district council’s Long

Term Plan asking for funding

to solve ongoing concerns

with the condition

of the Bealey Rd frontage

outside the school.

In it, Mr Gameson said

“This matter needs to be

a significant hazard to

District councillor John

Morten said the Ministry

of Education is given funding

to provide facilities

which included the building

of schools and the

provision of car parks.

Helping kids to get active

A TEAM that aims to promote physical

activity is making a difference in schools

across the district.

Selwyn physical activity activators are

working with existing community

leaders to influence change and create

opportunities,” Selwyn Sports Trust’s

Mike Wilson said.

To find out what the community

wanted, the project started by engaging

pre-schools and parents, primary and

secondary schools, Lincoln University’s

sport scholarship programme, clubs like

Waikirikiri Sport and the district council.

The pilot programme began

at Clearview Primary and Rolleston

Christian School in 2016, engaging more

than 700 pupils with a variety of physical

activity opportunities.

Four ‘activators’ are currently engaging

with 7700 students across 27 schools

in the district. Mr Wilson says the

Jacqui Gibbs

Chamberlain

– Leap of Faith

In these works I challenge my doubts and beliefs

that anything is possible, that dreams really do come

true. There is also a plunge into the unknown subtly

represented in these paintings, a leap of faith into what

cannot be seen, what lies beneath, what hides around the

corner.

All we need to do is to take that risk, the first step, and

surrender to the unknown. Then the real adventure

begins.

My studio overlooks the sea and influences the way

I think and create. Its forever changing moods, one

moment calm and serene, the next rough and unforgiving,

Electric barrier to protect mudfish

A $120,000 project to protect

the nationally threatened

Canterbury mudfish in the

district using an electric barrier

is the first of its kind in the

country.

Environment Canterbury,

Department of Conservation and

local landowners near Haldon

Pasture Springs near Hororata

met with American hydrological

engineer Jason Kent recently to

begin planning the logistics.

ECan biodiversity officer

Johannes Welsch said the pilot

project could be a significant step

forward in native fish conservation

at sites threatened by trout.

“This is a unique opportunity

to showcase how biodiversity,

species protection and agriculture

can work together –

delivering sustainable farming

and conservation in the diverse

agricultural landscape of Canterbury”

he said.

The Canterbury mudfish

protection project will utilise an

approximate 6m to 7m canvas

array, think “permanent electric

fishing with an electric fence”,

covering the full stream bed.

This will send out electric

pulses discouraging trout and

eel from swimming upstream

into the tributaries but rather

continue up the main stem of the

Hororata River.

The Selwyn Waihora catchment

has the largest remaining

fragments of Canterbury

mudfish of any other zone in the

region.

The Haldon Pasture Springs

site is particularly significant as it

is one of only a few, where mudfish

in the Hororata catchment

INVESTIGATION: Planning is under way for a

$120,000 project to protect Canterbury mudfish in

the district.

managed to survive during the

2015-16 drought.

Mudfish from there have

begun expanding into areas

downstream where populations

were particularly affected by

the drought. It is expected the

project would lead to a 10-fold

increase of habitat from 820m2 to

8200m2 in the Selwyn Waihora

catchment by allowing mudfish

to expand their movements into

the lower reaches of the springs.

This could also lead to the

area being used as a nursery

where mudfish are transplanted.

Plans for the barrier are

expected to be prepared by

July.

In Brief

RECYCLING POPULAR

Two community recycling

drop-off Days in Malvern and

Ellesmere recently resulted in

the collection of more than 25

tonnes of garden waste. This will

now be composted, along with

more than 6.5 tonnes of scrap

metal and almost 160 tyres for

recycling. The two drop-off days

were held near Leeston and

Darfield providing residents

with an alternative drop-off

point for their garden waste

and some types of recyclables.

Over the two days, 190 vehicles

dropped off their garden

waste, scrap metal and other

recyclables for a small charge.

The events were managed by

the district council’s contractor

Sicon Ltd.

KIDSFEST TO RETURN

KidsFest is returning to the

district in the July school

holidays, with bookings now

open. About 70 events will be

held in the district as part of

KidsFest between July 7-21.

Residents call

for changes

at domain

•From page 1

The committee is using its

discretionary fund to deal with

the issue but would like the

council to cordon off vehicle

access, clear a small area for off -

-road parking and supply picnic

tables.

Whitecliffs ratepayers are

currently subsidising the domain

at a projected cost of $17,664 for

2017/18.

Miss Thompson said residents

are paying for services “exclusively

used by non -residents”.

The district council approved

its proposed district-wide rating

for community centres, halls and

reserves at its Long Term Plan

2018-2028 deliberations last week.

All Selwyn ratepayers will now

pay a reserves rate of $125 a year,

increasing to $155 by 2027/28.

But district councillor John

Morten said he did not think it

was a “significant issue.”

“That is no different than you

and I going to a Christchurch

camping ground . . . they might

pay for your camping rates and a

Christchurch person might not be

able to get in,” he said.

The domain was handed over

to the district council from the

committee about five years ago.

Keeping our waterways healthy

Selwyn

Waihora

Zone

Committee

chairman

Allen Lim on

the Selwyn

river and its

challenges

IT’S BEEN a good year for the

Selwyn River/Waikirikiri so far,

with healthy river flows and new

projects under way.

A major challenge has been

to cater for multiple values of

the river system at the same

time. Good examples of this are

contact recreation, native fish

populations, the trout fishery,

and mahinga kai – all of which

can be adversely affected by

droughts.

Two projects are under way

to address this – the Targeted

Stream Augmentation project

which uses a solar powered

pump to supply groundwater

to a spring-fed tributary of the

river when the spring stops

flowing.

This tributary, just upstream

of Chamberlains Ford, has been

a stronghold for native fish due

to a natural barrier keeping

trout out.

The Selwyn Near River Recharge

project is constructing

RESEARCH: Selwyn Waihora Water Zone Committee

chairman Allen Lim talks about the electric fish barrier

investigations at Hororata River tributary. ​

an off-take from the Central

Plains Water scheme that will

supply a leaky basin beside the

upper Selwyn River/Waikirikiri

during dry periods. Recharged

water will flow through the

groundwater system and keep

the lower Hororata, Selwyn and

Irwell rivers from running dry

as they have in the past.

A potential issue with this

project is more regular joining

of trout and Canterbury mudfish

habitat in a tributary of the

lower Hororata River. A physical

fish barrier is not possible here

as it would flood nearby land.

Canterbury mudfish have a conservation

status of ‘nationally

critical’ and they are a favourite

food for trout, so keeping the

species apart is important.

Your zone committee is

pleased to be supporting investigations

into the first electric fish

barrier in the Southern Hemisphere

to keep these populations

apart.

Further down the catchment,

a Fish & Game led project is

restoring the trout spawning

habitat of the Snake Creek

system.

At our April zone committee

meeting, we supported the formation

of a new Selwyn River/

Waikirikiri Working Group.

This group offers a wide range of

expertise to make sure all river

values can be managed into the

future in an integrated way.

I look forward to providing

updates on these projects in

future. In the meantime, don’t

hesitate to talk to your zone

members for more information

It is a wise investment for now

and the future, thanks to all

the people who have made this

happen.

Geoff Ostle – Gary Doyle is

missing the point. Facilities build

communities. Our forebears

built roads, schools, playing

fields etc. If they had not done

that, we would not enjoy and

use the facilities we do now. The

replacement of the facilities at

Weedons Reserve is long overdue

and will ensure the community

has facilities long into the future.

A reader responds to

CentreStage’s Long Term

Plan submission asking for

a performing arts facility in

Rolleston

Frances Harrison – I read

with interest the article in the

local newspaper regarding the

lack of facilities for Rolleston in

terms of the arts, especially the

performing arts.

This is a serious issue.

Rolleston caters for sports and

to a large extent families, but

little else. I would describe it

as a cultural desert and this is

not good for social cohesion or

diversity. Rolleston is exploding

in some ways in terms of growth

but risks tripping over itself if it

doesn’t provide better and wider

facilities for residents.

As someone who has spent her

life with an interest in music,

dance, singing and acting, I have

been contemplating whether

I should start up some dance

classes for adults (not ballroom

dancing, mostly for women of

all ages). The rental for space

is very expensive and would

be prohibitive for me starting

out, with classes as $40 to hire

each time would wipe out most

earnings before tax. So yes, we

really need this new facility to

give Rolleston a bit of cultural

maturity and show there are

talented and artistic/ creative

people here. And we need

somewhere to get together to

amateurs, to add to the Rolleston

it also needs to be priced to

A GROUP of community agencies in

Selwyn, supported by the district council,

have launched a website.

The Everything Selwyn website is an

online directory of services in the district,

offering information about everything

from local schools and sports teams to

special interest groups and events.

It also provides practical information

for those new to the district and New

banking, IRD and health care.

District council community development

adviser Jason Flewellen said the

website is an easily accessible community

database for anything of interest to residents

in the district.

The concept for the website was developed

out of the research findings from the

district council’s migrants and newcomers

Our People

Manaia Davies

Ready to rock the body in the US

Glentunnel 13-year-old

Manaia Davies has been

selected to represent

New Zealand in a team

of 22 dancers in an

international competition,

Body Rock Junior, in

San Diego later in the

month. Emily O’Connell

talked with her about her

dancing, her other talents

and how she balances

her hobbies with school

Can you tell me about being

selected for Body Rock Junior

by Kiwi choreographer, Kiel

Tutin, who has worked with

stars such as Jennifer Lopez?

I’ve known Kiel for quite a

long time. He was a teacher at

this dance camp, called Motion

Dance Camp and I obviously I

go to that dance camp every year

and so I met him there. Lots of

the time I meet choreographers

my mum usually goes up to

them and she’s like ‘hi’ and so

they kind of like get to know me

and my family. He messaged

my mum one day and was like

‘would Manaia like to be in the

team?’ And before that mum had

emailed to ask if I was eligible,

like if I was the right age and

OPPORTUNITY: 13-year-old Manaia Davies, of Glentunnel, will head to San Diego later this

month to represent New Zealand in an international dance competition ​

everything for the competition,

and when he said ‘yeah’ then

mum was like ‘cool,’ and he said

‘yeah she would be a great addition

to the team. We’d love to

have her’ and so that was really

amazing.

Can you tell me about the

training you do in Auckland for

Body Rock Junior?

So we train from 11am to 5pm

every weekend and it’s really

hard out, like it’s full hands-on

training, we run the set over,

over and over again and it’s really

tiring.

How did you feel when you

were chosen?

Oh, I was quite shocked actually.

It’s kind of mixed emotions

because I was like ‘oh my gosh

that’s so exciting I get to go to

America and I get to compete in

this amazing competition with

these amazing people’ but then

at the same time it was kind of

like ‘ahh, oh my gosh’ and the

training as well, because it’s like

hard-core training, all I was

thinking was ‘how’s that going

to happen?’ Also because I’d

never trained with him before

so I didn’t know how he worked

and how he ran his trainings but

yeah, he’s an amazing person

and teacher.

So what’s your schedule like

during the week?

I train almost every day after

school. On a Monday, I teach a

lot of solos actually . . . and on

Tuesdays I teach in Springfield

because I live an hour out of

town so I teach out to all of

the local kids out there. On a

Wednesday I sing because I’m

actually a part of a programme

at school, which is the specialist

music programme, it’s this

amazing programme and so I’m

a part of that. On a Thursday I

have training from 5pm to 8pm

with my crew called Aperture

from Zion in Christchurch and

then on a Friday, I also teach

solos, it just depends.

Our People

Singing and dancing a way to

How long have you been

dancing for?

I’ve been dancing since I was

three-years-old.

Why did you start?

It was one of those things

where my mum was like ‘let’s

put my daughter in ballet,

she’d be cute.’ And then, yes, it

progressed, when I was four and

five-years-old I started doing

hip-hop and then . . . I had a

scholarship to a dance studio in

Australia, because I used to live

in Australia, and I did all kind of

styles. So I did tap, jazz, lyrical,

contemporary, I did everything.

When did you move to New

Zealand?

On my ninth birthday, I think.

How does dancing make you

feel?

It’s just a way to express myself

I think. Whenever I turn on

music, or even when I’m just by

myself in the kitchen, I’m always

dancing.

How long have you been

singing for?

I was kind of like an on and off

singer. I started singing when I

was around 11 I think. But then I

stopped and then I started again

for the SMP, because I live out of

zone, but I really wanted to go to

Burnside High School, so I was

FLEX: Manaia competing in the Gold Coast at six-years-old and getting some practice in before

her trip overseas.

like ‘maybe if I just try out for

this and just see what happens,

then I can get into the school.’ So

I just rocked in there, I was just

like sick the whole audition, so

it really wasn’t my best voice . . .

Then I got an email back saying

I was in and I was like ‘ah, now

what am I going to do?’ But it’s

amazing, like I’m learning to read

music and stuff.

Are there other dancers and

singers in your family?

My mum, she was a salsa

dancer when she was younger.

She was actually an instructor for

salsa and my dad’s a singer so he

writes and sings songs.

What’s been your dancing

highlight?

Well there was a Motion Dance

Camp, when it first started, I

think it was two years ago, I

went to it. I did it in Wellington

and Auckland. I was actually in

quite a bad spot at the time, not

really bad but I had just come

out of a bad studio, and I kind

of was just finding my place and

finding where I was with dance

and where I was with myself and

if I wanted to continue dancing

because it was really hard. And

that was when I found myself

at that dance camp and it was a

long process and a very, very hard

process like long, crying talks

in the car with mum. Yes, it was

definitely a highlight, because I

feel like that was the time I actually

realised ‘wow I love this and

I’m never going to stop doing it.’

How do you balance school,

dance and life?

I actually don’t know. Because

when my report cards come

back, and they are really good,

my mum is like ‘how did you do

this?’ I just do the best that I can.

What’s your favourite thing

to do beside dancing and singing?

I act as well. So I used to take

drama classes in Darfield and I

kind of cut that off just for this

time because of going away and

because it’s a lot with everything

I’m doing at the moment.

But I’m going to start it back

up again, and I love it, I’ve done

three Trinity College London

exams and I’ve passed with Distinction

all three times. And also,

spending time with my family

because when you do as much as

I do, it’s really rare to have that

quality time with your family.

What’s your dream?

I think, I just want to take it

step by step. I want to take every

opportunity that I can but my ultimate

goal is to open up a dance

studio in New Zealand and share

all my knowledge with everyone.

Of course first, I want to go and

travel the world and I want to

learn off different people and

maybe like, do big performances,

but then I want to bring it back to

my home and teach everybody.

Can you tell me about how

you started teaching dance?

So I started teaching when I

was 10. And I got this amazing

opportunity from this lady,

amazing lady, called Lisa Yaxley,

and she saw all the students in

Springfield, which is about 10

minutes away from where I live,

she saw they didn’t have much

to do and they just sat at home

and played on their devices. And

she was like ‘we need to make a

change, so she started up a dance

studio, it’s called Danz Fit . . . she

charges her dancers like $5 per

class, it’s really, really cheap. So

she was like ‘do you want to come

and teach hip-hop?’ because she

can’t do hip-hop herself but she

wanted to have that as an option

for her students . . . I’ve been

teaching there for three years

now, so yeah, it’s pretty awesome.

Who do you look up to?

There is a couple called Keone

and Mari Madrid . . . and they’re

amazing dancers and I love them

so much. And when I’m in San

Diego, I have the opportunity to

take a class from them. Oh my

gosh, mum surprised me with

SKILLS: Manaia being

lifted up during a

dance performance.

the news, I was just freaking out,

I actually started crying because

I was so happy and yeah, they

inspire me so much. It’s just the

way they move and the people

that they are as well – because I

really value good people.

What’s the biggest lesson

you’ve learnt in dancing?

Through teaching dancing, I

think patience . . . and for dancing,

perseverance.

Event for church fundraiser

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A FILM evening showcasing

Springfield and the wider

Malvern area in the 1930s will

be held to fundraise for the

township’s historic church.

Films taken in the 1930s

by late Waddington resident

Fred Bull will be displayed as

the community continues its

ongoing fundraising efforts to

repair the St Peter’s Community

Church.

Built in 1885, the church’s

congregation is planning to

undertake repairs to the woodwork

on the exterior.

Work on the exterior includes

replacing rotten weatherboards,

the window sills and the surrounds

of the window.

The committee’s chairman

Graeme Dawson said it is a

good way to attract people into

the church because the interior

is “quite impressive for a little

country church” and is different

to the exterior.

Mr Dawson said while a finish

date is not yet set for when

the repairs will be complete,

there has been a lot of interest

locally along with a lot of offers

of assistance.

“Its ticking away well but we

are not setting ourselves silly

targets and goals,” he said.

While the interior of the

church was damaged in the

earthquake, repairs were covered

by insurance.

•The event will be held

Saturday, June 23, 7pm, at

the St Peter’s Community

Church on the West Coast

Rd, Springfield.

Saturday 9 – Saturday 23 July 2016

KidsFest is returning to Selwyn for the July school holidays, with bookings now open.

Around 70 events will be held in Selwyn as part of KidsFest between 7 and 21 July.

“KidsFest has a wide variety of exciting events and activities for kids to do in the upcoming

Dave Tippett.

“Our events usually book out pretty early so we advise parents to book early to ensure families

can go to their preferred events.

“This year we’ve got some new events such as Explore Parkour, and Sport Suzie’s Super Silly

Circus Show, but we’ve also got some favourites from last year such as High Ropes Challenge,

Selwyn Kids’ Market, and fun water activities at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre with aqua volleyball

and handball, inflatables and paddleboats. The Selwyn Libraries are also hosting a range of

activities including Map It, Kahuna Kidsongs and Game On,” he says.

Some KidsFest events are free, while others are available at low cost. Booking is required for

some events. KidsFest has been running for over 25 years.

Selwyn families can also attend events in Christchurch and Waimakariri.

For information on KidsFest events and bookings visit www.kidsfest.co.nz, or pick up a

Long-Term Plan set for sign-off this month

The Council has completed deliberations on its Long-Term Plan 2018–2028 and expects to adopt the

final plan on Wednesday 20 June.

Councillors spent two days last week analysing all public submissions, considering staff comments and

recommendations, and beginning the decision making process on major projects and budgets for the

next 10 years.

A total of 436 submissions were received on the plan, with more than 100 individuals and organisations

presenting their submissions to councillors in person at public hearings earlier in May. In addition more

than 1300 people participated in online feedback on the draft plan.

Dog registration starts in July

The Selwyn District Council is encouraging dog owners to get their

furry friends registered once notices arrive in letterboxes around the

start of July. All dogs older than three months must be registered

every year (July-June) under the Dog Control Act 1996.

The owner of an unregistered dog can be fined $300.

Registration fee:

The 2018/19 fees are due on Sunday 1 July 2018, and may be paid

throughout July.

This may be done via a payment link when the form is emailed, by

internet banking, at the Rolleston Headquarters or at the Service

Centres in Leeston, Darfield or Lincoln.

Alternatively, you can use the prepaid return envelope provided with

your registration form.

If paid by Tuesday 31 July 2018, the discounted registration fee

applicable is:

· $10 Administration/Owner fee

· $30 for each dog owned by the same person and held at the

same locality.

Payment after Tuesday 31 July 2018 the full registration fee

applicable is:

· $15 Administration/Owner fee

· $40 for each dog owned by the same person and held at the

same locality.

The fee for a replacement dog tag is $5 and for a dog collar $9–$11

Everything Selwyn website

launched

A group of community agencies in Selwyn, supported by the Council,

have launched a one-stop shop with information on everything

residents and newcomers need to know about the district.

The Everything Selwyn website will become a comprehensive online

directory of services in the Selwyn district, offering information

about everything from local schools and sports teams to special

interest groups and events. It also provides practical information for

those new to Selwyn and New Zealand, including information about

banking, the IRD and health care.

Jason Flewellen, Selwyn District Council’s Community Development

Advisor says Everything Selwyn is an easily accessible community

database for anything of interest to Selwyn residents, those who

have been here a while, as well as those brand new to the area.

“The website is a go-to for the community to find out the latest, and

also let others know about their own events and services. Adding a

listing is super easy and free,” he says.

The concept for the website was developed out of the research

findings from the Selwyn District Council’s Migrants and

Newcomers Strategy.

The website has been developed by Council in conjunction with

Selwyn’s four community care groups.

Beverley Elder of the Malvern Community Care Group says

Everything Selwyn will enable all newcomers to Selwyn to learn

about the area.

“The more people use the website, the more useful it will be as

a constant flow of information to help people find what they are

looking for,” Mrs Elder says.

Members of the Selwyn community are encouraged to upload their

own events and services, to populate the website.

The Everything Selwyn website can be accessed at www.

everythingselwyn.co.nz to view and add listings.

Live in Lincoln bigger

and funnier than ever

LIVE IN Lincoln will once again

bring laughter to the area with

its third annual comedy night.

The first two were successful,

with comedy lovers from near

and far making each event a sell

out.

A look at the line up for this

year indicates the event may sell

out even quicker than its predecessors.

Live in Lincoln promoter David

Parlane has cast his net even

wider than before this year.

“An enjoyable night in Lincoln

listening to some of New Zealand’s

best comedians and our

international comedians as well,”

he said.

They include international

comedian and head writer for

Seven Days Nick Rado, recent

Billy T Award winner Melanie

Bracewell, Melbourne-based

comedian Rhys Nicholson and

United States comedian Wilson

Dixon from Cripple Creek,

Arizona.

They will be under the watchful

eye of equally humorous

master of ceremonies, Ben

Hurley.

A past recipient of the Billy T

Award, Hurley features regularly

on Seven Days and tours extensively

both here and overseas.

A NEW children’s book has been

launched to tackle bullying head

on – and it tells the story of some

familiar Canterbury icons.

Bayleys Canterbury and the BNZ

Crusaders have teamed up to launch

Ace: A Horsey Tail of Courage.

Aimed at school children aged

five to eight, it tells the story of

Ace, a young horse who is being

bullied by his peers. He dreams of

becoming one of the six Crusaders

Bayleys Horses which ride out at

the start of every home game.

The story ends well for Ace who

achieves his dream, just as his

real-life character did.

Ace, a four-year-old

thoroughbred mare was in

training when the book was being

written. He made his debut on the

field on May 12 at AMI Stadium

when the BNZ Crusaders beat the

Waratahs 31-29.

Holly, another character in the

book who stands up for Ace, is

the horse that sets the pace for the

others and keeps them on track,

even though she’s third in line.

Ace: A Horsey Tail of Courage

aims to encourage children to

speak-up and report incidents

of bullying whether they are the

victims or witnesses. It has already

been received well.

Last year the OECD programme

tackle school bullying

assessment produced a report on

students’ well-being.

Fifteen-year-old students in 51

countries were surveyed about

perceived bullying. New Zealand

students reported the secondhighest

rate of bullying in the

OECD.

Bayleys Canterbury general

manager Pete Whalan said he was

proud to be working

with the Crusaders to deliver

an important message to Kiwi

kids.

“The Crusaders sporting

prowess, combined with the

team’s reputation in the wider

community and the easilyapproachable

persona of the

Crusaders horses, will enable

the anti-bullying message to be

spread among the key audiences

throughout the country.”

The book has been written by

Friday Creative’s Katy Clook, and

illustrated by Kophie Hulsbosch.

There is also advice in it for

parents.

The books can be pre-ordered

on the BNZ Crusaders website,

and will be sold for $20 at the

Crusaders home games against

the Highlanders on July 6 and the

Blues on July 14.

Proceeds go to Bayleys’

principal charity, Make-A-Wish

pitcher Jacob Davidson throws

the ball so hard, he hurts his

dad’s hand in practice.

The talented 15-year-old will

be part of the New Zealand

under-15 team to tour Taiwan

next month.

Jacob, who attend Riccarton

High, has been clocked at

112km/h off the mound and his

dad Neil admits his pitches can

sting when they hit his mitt.

“He throws pretty hard,” he

said.

“I certainly feel it on my hand

after a while.”

Neil was a key part in setting

up the Selwyn baseball club

in Rolleston, with many of the

teams known as the Selwyn

Braves.

Jacob has already been

mentored by former New York

Mets Major League Baseball

pitcher DJ Corasco and that

trend looks set to continue.

Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher

Josh Collmenter travels with the

national age-group team.

TALENT: Jacob Davidson (left) with his mentor DJ Corasco

PHOTO CARMEN DAVIDSON

Collmenter, 32, spent seven

years playing in the major

leagues, with a 38-35 win-loss

record and starting in a third of

his 214 MLB games.

Davidson has already spent

time in the national setup,

earning a silver medal at the

Oceania championships in

January.

It was there he formed a bond

with Corasco and his wife

Autumn Lopez

“I look up to DJ, not only for

what he has achieved but how

cool he was to me,” he said. “He

showed me so much and gave

me a lot of advice on how to deal

with pressure situations.”

Davidson, who is already

185cm tall, used to be a catcher,

and still catches occasionally

when he plays softball.

“Autumn showed him

skills to be a better catcher

but at his height he’s probably

better suited to pitching,” Mr

Davidson said.

Jacob said he was eager to

improve his four-seam fastball,

two-seam fastball, curve ball

and change-up, to become a

more dominant pitcher.

“I don’t know how far I want

to go, but I just want to play as

much as possible,” he said.

Proud supporters of

Rugby & Netball in Selwyn

Are you ready for another big quake?

• By Julia Evans

CANTABRIANS have become

complacent over being prepared

for another big disaster.

Civil Defence has released its

latest survey on how ready we

are if another big natural disaster

strikes.

And it doesn’t make overly

good reading.

The results show 47 per cent of

Christchurch households have

enough water stored, compared

to 79 per cent in 2011.

Overall 12 per cent of Cantabrians

surveyed said they feel

“very well” prepared, compared

to 31 per cent

in 2011.

And those

who consider

being prepared

“very

important”

has dropped

since 2011

from 76 per

cent to 65

John McClure

per cent.

The result

has left the

Canterbury Civil Defence Emergency

Management Group “surprised”

and “a bit disappointed,”

welfare manager Jessica Petersen

said.

Ms Petersen said as time

moves on from major emergency

events like 2010 and 2011 people

become less prepared. She said

new residents moving to the city

also has an impact on figures.

Psychologist John McClure

said people become “complacent”

as their “sense of risk”

fades.

“If people had not been

harmed or directly affected,

memory tends to fade . . . but being

prepared is very important,

you never know what might happen

and when.”

However, both said there was

more that could be done to improve

awareness.

“One thing that might help is

you’re encouraged to change

your smoke alarms during daylight

saving,” Prof McClure said.

He said another way would be

through Government legislation.

“It applies to building standards,

but not emergency kits.

Building standards are more immediately

important, but these

other things could also be saving

lives.”

Civil Defence has launched

the ‘Never Happens? Happens’

campaign to get preparedness

back on people’s radars.

“We want people to talk to

each other – family, friends,

workplaces, community – and

consider different situations they

might face and develop a plan for

them,” Ms Petersen said.

She said people needed to be

thinking long term. It comes

at the same time as the release

of the ProjectAF8 report. ProjectAF8

lays out what would

happen in the South Island in

the event of a magnitude 8 earthquake

Gardening

Plant strawberries for summer

• By Henri Ham

IN MY opinion, strawberries,

like many fruit and veg, just seem

to taste juicier and better when

you’ve grown them yourself.

So, every winter I like to

ensure we have a good strawberry

patch set up to enjoy in summer.

Sometimes that means creating

a whole new strawberry patch

and other years I just top up my

existing patch with new plants.

Three popular varieties of

strawberries are Chandler,

Camerosa and Ventana, they

can be described as good homegarden

varieties that produce

sweet, medium-sized fruit but the

Ventana strawberries have more

of a conical shape to them.

Some gardeners like specific

varieties, but if you’re starting out

and have no preference I would

recommend any of these varieties.

Each regular-sized bundle

has around four plants which

should produce between 60 -100

strawberries come Christmas.

I recommend planting as many

strawberry plants as you can fit –

I don’t think you can never have

too many strawberries.

Once you’ve got your plants

you need to decide where to

plant them. The great thing about

strawberries is they can be grown

in pretty much any sized garden.

Maybe you’re lucky enough

to have a big raised garden box

you can grow them in. But if

you’re not, there are still plenty of

options for growing strawberries.

They grow well in hanging

baskets, cut-off drain pipes, pots,

wooden pyramids and more.

As long as they can see the sun,

VERSATILE: A raised garden is perfect for growing strawberries.

and where you’re planting is welldrained,

you can expect healthygrowing

plants that produce lots

of fruit.

When you’ve found just the

right spot or spots, prepare

the soil by digging in a general

fertiliser that’s rich in potassium.

This will help stimulate plant

growth and big, juicy fruit.

If you’re planting in a pot

or hanging basket, use a good

potting mix and an extra boost of

liquid fertiliser.

Before planting in the garden

raise your bed by mounding

the soil. This will encourage

circulation, drainage and can add

depth to shallow soil.

Plant your seedlings around

when you

them in your

own garden.

the edges of your garden or pots

to encourage the strawberries to

hang over the sides and prevent

the fruit from touching the

ground and rotting.

Dig a hole 10cm deep and place

the seedling inside. A deep hole is

required to give the roots plenty

of room to spread out and grow

but be careful not to bury the

plant.

Pack the soil firmly around

each seedling and surround with

peastraw or newspaper to help

keep away weeds.

Place netting or wire over

you plants when they begin to

produce fruit. This will block out

birds and ensure you get to eat the

strawberries yourself.

In spring, add another dose of

general fertiliser or strawberry

food to your strawberries to

encourage sturdier plants that are

more disease resistant heading in

to the warmer months.

Come Christmas you’ll be

able to put your strawberries to

the test and decide for yourself

whether home-grown really does

taste better.

And remember your strawberry

plants will be most productive in

their second year.

IF YOU’RE after a cottagegarden

or wildflower vibe in your

garden then look no further than

cornflowers.

Their ruffled and colourful

flowers will add an easy-care,

pretty look to any home and

garden.

Typically cornflowers are blue

but you can get mixed bundles

of seedlings which includes pink,

lilac, white, purple and blue

flowers.

Other flowers that also grow

nicely with cornflowers and will

create a lovely effect when grown

together in your garden are

delphiniums, poppies, lavender

and roses.

If you don’t have much of a

garden, never fear, cornflowers

also grow very well in pots

Cute and cottagey

cornflowers

and look particularly nice when

grown with lobelia in containers.

If you’re planting in the

garden, look for a sunny, welldrained

spot with soil that isn’t

too sour. Before you start, I recommend

adding a good general

fertiliser or blood and bone to

help give the seedlings a good

kick-start. If you’re growing your

cornflowers in a pot, as always, I

recommend tipping out any old

soil and replacing with new potting

mix.

Then dig a little hole and plant

each seedling around 10cm apart.

They’re quite upright growing

plants and planting at this space

apart will allow them to support

the weight of each other.

In around six to eight weeks

your cute and cottagey plants

will start to flower and provide a

splash of colour to your garden.

The fight against Mycoplasma bovis is escalating

with 50 more staff, a new field HQ and the

appointment of a science adviser, says

Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor.

“Today 25 new Incident Control Point

managers enter the field after completing

training yesterday.

“These case managers are appointed to work

one-on-one with affected farmers under movement

controls. They support farmers with information and advice on

the practical aspects of the controls.

“A further 25 will undergo training in coming weeks, greatly

boosting capacity to help those farmers affected by the disease.

“The 50 new Incident Control Point staff are on top of the

250 at the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) already

undertaking this work. MPI’s compensation team was also

recently increased from 22 to 30 and is expected to double

in size as the response progresses.

“MPI has also opened a new Field HQ in Cambridge.

“Newly appointed science adviser Dr John Roche has

been tasked with researching new tools for the fight

against Mycoplasma bovis.

“Dr Roche has a PhD in ruminant

nutrition from the National University of

Ireland and has most recently worked as a

principal scientist at DairyNZ and adjunct

professor in animal science at Lincoln

University.

“He will provide strategic science advice

across MPI and his first task will be to

head up a new Mycoplasma bovis Science

Strategic Advisory Group.

“There has been little international

investment in science around this disease

so the group will look into testing

developments to detect Mycoplasma bovis

in individual cows, grow understanding

of the disease and identify opportunities

to support the New Zealand eradication

operation.

“With his background in Ireland, where

Mycoplasma bovis is widespread, Dr Roche

will be ideally placed to lead this work,”

says Damien O’Connor.

Practical firearms

licence component

given thumbs up

Federated Farmers supports changes

to New Zealands firearms licensing, in

particular the new requirement for a

practical, hands-on component of testing

alongside the theory.

“To own and use a gun is a responsibility

no-one should take lightly,” Feds National

President Katie Milne says. “If the changes

that come in from July 1 boost people’s

understanding of the Arms Code and how

to stay safe with firearms, that has to be a

good thing.”

Police have announced that as well as

needing to pass a computer-based multichoice

theory test to gain a firearms

licence (similar to that used in driver’s

licence tests), applicants will be required

to participate in a practical training

session run by firearms instructors

from the Mountain Safety Council, and

demonstrate their understanding of safe

handling of firearms.

“Federated Farmers does want to see

an adequate number of venues for these

practical sessions and tests, with plenty of

venues in provincial areas,” Katie said.

Feds is also pleased to see Police

acknowledge that even after the theory test

and practical training, there is still a vital

role for hunting clubs and experienced

firearms users – including farmers – to

mentor those with less experience with

guns.

“Back in the day, when many more

New Zealanders had contact with rural

people who use firearms, or contact with

other hunters, it was more common for

people to be coached through firearms

use. They’d go out with those who had

experience, and probably start with a

pellet gun, graduating to a .22, etc.

“These days the firearms culture has

changed, and there are probably more

people – particularly urban people

– who like the idea of going hunting

at the weekend. They often have little

previous experience, and start by buying

a large calibre rifle and going into the

bush hunting big game such as deer

without a hunting ‘apprenticeship’ with

the traditional small game and family

guidance.

“Hopefully the practical training will

assist with this issue,” Katie said.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Rural health

review welcome

The New Zealand Rural General Practice

Network (NZRGPN) has welcomed an

announcement of a comprehensive review of

health services in New Zealand.

The NZRGPN is the national network

representing the staff of rural medical

practices across New Zealand.

“A comprehensive review of the delivery of

health and disability services is timely,” said

NZRGPN chief executive Dalton Kelly.

“This review must be comprehensive and

wide-ranging, taking into account the full

range of communities and health service

providers across New Zealand.

“We welcome the review and will look to

participate fully in it on behalf of the medical

professionals who are delivering outstanding

health services to rural communities, often

under increasingly difficult conditions.”

Kelly said the NZRGPN would be looking

to ensure core rural health issues were

well-represented in the review, including

adequate training of sufficient volumes of

rural doctors and nurses, adequate funding

of rural emergency first responder services,

and the provision of palliative care in rural

communities.

“It’s easy for people to forget that rural

communities are struggling to access

equitable health care services relative to

urban centres. It’s harder to attract doctors

and nurses to rural communities, doctors

on average are closer to retirement age

than doctors in urban centres and they are

generally working longer and increasing

hours.

“The boom in tourism is also something

which absolutely must be reflected in the

review. While a great thing for the New

Zealand economy, it is projected that five

million tourists per annum will visit in New

Zealand by the middle of next decade with up

to half visiting a national park.

“The classic New Zealand tourism

experience is accessed through rural New

Zealand and already booming tourism

numbers are placing great strain on already

stretched rural health services,” he said.

“This review is a very positive development

that we fully support. It has started to feel as

though the country’s health needs, particularly

in a rural context, were in competition with

each other. A comprehensive review should

deliver clarity around the health services

all New Zealanders need, including in the

engine room of the New Zealand economy –

rural New Zealand.”

Gala 40th Anniversary

Celebration for Malvern

Community Arts Council

The Malvern Community Arts Council

(MCAC) is throwing a party on Saturday,

23 June and invites you to come along.

This Gala Anniversary Celebration

will be held at the Darfield Recreation

Centre to mark the 40th anniversary of

the founding of MCAC in 1978. “We are

inviting the Malvern community, along

with volunteer committee members

(past and present), artist members,

and local dignitaries to join us for a

celebratory evening of music, short

congratulatory speeches, finger food

and refreshments”, MCAC Chairperson

Philip Baldwin said.

“We are celebrating the Malvern

Community Arts Council’s work over

the past 40 years. It is also important

for us to thank the legion of local

volunteers for their tireless efforts in

this work, and the community that has

supported us”, Mr Baldwin added.

“More than just celebrating that past,

though, this event will highlight our

ongoing commitment to providing

engaging exhibitions at the Selwyn

Gallery, putting on Darfield Artweek,

and sponsoring entertaining concerts.”

Gala organisers found the minutes

of the first Malvern Community Arts

Council AGM in 1979, which conclude

with the following vote of thanks: “Mrs

N. Pearson expressed thanks to the

chairwoman and council for all the

work they had done during the past

year, believing that this had laid a good

foundation for cultural life in the county

in the years ahead”. Commenting

on this entry, Mr Baldwin said, “The

success of the MCAC for the past 40

years is due to the initial work of a small

group of community-minded people

and the broad community support it

has enjoyed. We invite the people of

Malvern to join us in celebrating the

cultural life in our district”.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

An exquisite

family home

Trident Homes’ show home in Faringdon is a truly beautiful

home. 242 sqm of very well thought out design, this spacious

house is well appointed and suitable for anyone looking for four

bedrooms, two bathrooms and two living areas.

The layout just works. Some houses make you work your way

through them; this Trident home flows from room to room. One

can only imagine how easy it would be to live in.

Trident Homes Canterbury is owned and operated by Jason

McKenzie and Peter Nisbet. They have offices in Belfast and

Hornby, and both of them have a solid history in building and

selling beautiful homes in Canterbury.

The home at 568 East Maddisons Rd is no exception, a

wonderful example of the design and build quality Trident clients

can expect. From the entrance way, adorned with Suvi wallpaper

from the Wabi Sabi Collection, to the spacious living room, with

its own feature wallpaper. This space is easily made private with

internal sliders.

Additional doors (all doors feature negative detailing) open into

a large kitchen, separate dining area, and another spacious living

area. The kitchen features a long island, good size walk-in pantry

with ample shelving and storage space and a tiled splashback in a

matte black, hexagon design against the white, soft close cabinetry

and bench tops, all very modern and functional.

All these areas offer access to a private deck outside via sliding

doors – an entertainer’s dream.

This home design offers four very generous size bedrooms. The

master has a large walk-in wardrobe with lots of hanging, shelf,

and drawer space. The en-suite features a large, fully tiled shower

and the bedroom has access to the outside via sliding doors.

The other three bedrooms all have large wardrobes with built-in

shelves.

It is obvious the designers of this house considered practical

matters especially in the details. The footrest in and the

ventilation above each of the showers; a nice deep bath in the

family bathroom; plenty of storage space in the laundry; and a

huge storage cupboard in the hallway. Slightly higher ceilings in

the entrance and kitchen enhance the feeling of space, and more

featured wallpaper – Carousel Stripe – in the master bedroom

makes it feel even more like home.

Trident Homes has a number of home designs and house and

land packages available, to suit all budgets and requirements

(www.tridenthomes.nz). The Faringdon show home is open

Wednesday to Sunday, 12pm until 4pm and by appointment.

Drop by and see this exquisite family home.

Making the most of

show home viewing

Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for

features and fittings to put into a new home. It can also be helpful

for getting a spatial feel for other aspects of a house design.

Before heading out for a day’s

viewing, conduct an internet search.

identify the locations of show home

villages and the types and sizes of the

various building company’s homes on

display, noting down the square metre

size of each home.

if wanting a high end, architectural

design, focus on the larger homes that

have desirable design features. if at the

entry or middle level of the market,

earmark homes that fit this taking in

other show homes for extra ideas.

allow sufficient time when visiting each

show home, asking for a floor plan that

has room sizes before walking through.

Check also the floor to ceiling height

of the rooms and consider how this feels

and whether you prefer a cosier feel with

the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or

more spaciousness created with a higher

stud or exposed ceiling beams.

if doors and windows are taller than

normal, weigh their effect in creating

a more luxurious and spacious feel,

against potential inconvenience for small

children, cleaning and maintenance.

on entering each room, take account of

how much furniture is in each room and

whether there is sufficient space for the

furniture you will have in the room and

the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look

too, at storage capacity throughout the

home and whether this is adequate.

in the living areas, consider whether a

lounge separated from the family living

room or a true open plan kitchen, dining,

living/lounge area is preferable, and

compare internal kitchens with those that

have natural light.

Look too at the layout of

the kitchen: whether to have

an island sink or breakfast

bar where a newspaper can

be read, and children can

sit and draw or complete

homework; the positioning

of appliances; and how

important having a pantry is.

for the little rooms, equate

space and features desired

with that needed, especially

if the budget needs to be

sharp. it might be nice to

have a large walk-in shower

with double shower heads

but is this just fanciful and

will the extra cleaning annoy you long

term. a laundry in the garage is also more

economical though a separate laundry

may be handier.

Bring the garage size into the equation

also. as these vary considerably, assess

the actual measurements of each garage

viewed comparing this with the space

needed for your motor vehicles and other

items to be stored there. if a good number

of toys will be housed there, it may be

sensible to increase the size of this area of

the home.

By imagining what you need, want and

will have in your new home, you will be in

a better position to confidently choose a

design that works for you.

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.
