Little River Band will headline

the Selwyn Sounds music

festival in March.

Dubbed by Eagles founding

member, the late Glenn Frey as

the “best singing band in the

world,” their playlist includes

vintage classics like Cool

Change, Lonesome Loser and

Take it Easy on Me.

Now into its third year,

Selwyn Sounds has become a

must-attend for Canterbury

music fans, and brings huge

spin-off benefits to the Selwyn

district, and particularly

Lincoln, where the event is

held.

More than 7000 attended the

inaugural event but numbers

jumped to a sellout 10,000 this

year.

For its third incarnation, Leo

Sayer takes the stage – he of

fame. Sayer has performed

everywhere from Moscow to

New York’s Central Park and

London’s Royal Albert Hall in

his 40-year career.

Former 80s pop wonderboy,

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A TOWNSHIP committee member

has been axed for poor attendance

records.

Malvern Community Board

member Megan

Hands has been

removed from

the Coalgate

Township Committee

due to poor

attendance and

apologies for her

absence.

It comes after the committee

expressed “disappointment” in her

commitment as a community board

representative and asked the board

to consider replacing her.

District councillor Bob Mugford

has since been appointed to take her

place.

Ms Hands said if she was unable

to meet the committee’s expectations

she accepted the consequence

of being removed.

“There is no point forcing yourself

onto a community that doesn’t want

you,” she said.

Ms Hands believes she is a

valuable community board member

and wants to continue advocating

the big issues in Malvern.

FELICITY PLUCK’S photo on page 28 says

it all: Lincoln Combined continue to fly in

the UC championship.

They edged out St Andrew’s at the weekend,

a side which is always in contention

for the major honours. Good things are

happening with Lincoln Combined. Once they would have been

regarded by opposition as easy competition points; now they are

very much a danger side. And as for that photo, Felicity: Great

stuff!

On other rugby matters, Waihora continues to stride forward

in the Ellesmere competiton and Lincoln University beat the city

students in the Hawkins Trophy.

But not so positive news on page 3. Rolleston School can’t find

enough volunteers to help out at its kea crossing. The school has

810 pupils, and that translates into lots of parents.

Lack of volunteers

may close Rolleston crossing

• By Emily O’Connell

ROLLESTON SCHOOL’S kea

crossing is at danger of closing

down if it can’t find more

volunteers.

The Rolleston Drive crossing,

which has been running since

October 2015, helps some of the

school’s 810 pupils get safely

across the road.

It also has a school crossing

on Tennyson St which is

controlled by

pupils and staff

in the afternoon

with parent help

in the mornings.

District

councillor

Nicole Reid,

Andrew

Morrall

who is also on

the school’s

board of

trustees, said the Rolleston

Drive crossing requires

controlling by adults but it’s

“hard to get volunteers.”

She’s concerned it may have

to close if more people don’t

volunteer.

Rolleston School principal

Andrew Morrall agreed that

HELPING OUT: Maara McLaughlin-Ioala patrolling the

crossing on Rolleston Drive.

without ongoing support

the crossing “may have to be

closed some days or possibly

completely.”

He said the crossing was set

up in response to growing traffic

volumes on Rolleston Drive and

the numbers of children having

2019

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 2 MARCH 2019

to cross there on their way to

school.

“Given the significant traffic

numbers, and the distance from

school, the board of trustees was

not prepared to put children

in charge of the crossing and

we called for volunteers,” Mr

Morrall said.

He said a small team of people

have been keeping the crossing

open and “are doing an amazing

job of helping to keep the

children safe.”

However, Mr Morrall said it’s

a “mystery” as to why it can’t

find more people to donate 20

minutes of their time one day a

week.

“We have many families

where both parents work.

This may be an issue. Perhaps

others believe that someone

else will step up or they are not

worried overly because their

child doesn’t come that way to

school,” he said.

•To help with the Rolleston

Drive crossing please phone

the school office on 347

8355. All volunteers will be

given training.

TWO SISTERS have teamed up

to create a raw food company.

Rosa, 22, and Margo Flanagan,

19, are hosting plant-based workshops

in Rolleston and around

the country as well as teaching

courses and catering for events.

The sisters, who both grew

up in Rolleston, launched the

company last year but started

working full-time as the Two

Raw Sisters last week.

The idea for the company came

after they both attended the

vegan culinary school, PlantLab,

in Los Angeles last year.

Margo said she knew she

wanted to work with food after

finishing high school in 2016.

Rosa said before attending the

culinary school they both ate

meat and fish but ended up eating

plant-based.

“It wasn’t on purpose but we

just started eating plant-based

because obviously we were at the

school all day and the meat was a

little bit dodgy in America,” she

said.

However, due to deficiencies,

Rosa has added meat and fish

back into her diet and Margo eats

fish again.

“Our big thing is everyone’s

bodies are different,” Rosa said.

Rosa, who has just completed

her degree in human nutrition, is

a 3000m and 5000m steeplechase

athlete.

In order to execute her peak

performance, Rosa had thought

it was essential to lose weight.

This put her body under a lot

of pressure and after multiple

injuries, Rosa “took a step back”

to address her eating habits.

“The last two to three years has

been a hard time with kind of

resetting my body pretty much

and being patient with it but I

know it’ll be worth it in the long

run,” she said.

Margo said the pair comple-

CREATIVE:

ment each other well, as Rosa’s

a rustic person and she’s the

perfectionist.

“She does the salad side of

things and I do the sweet side of

things, so it works well,” she said.

Rosa said their goal is to have

their own cooking school with

a workshop area so more people

can come along.

The committee first

complained about her

performance in October.

Its chairwoman Jane Huggins

said the committee does not

make a fuss about people

missing the odd meeting.

“So you can read from that,

it was more than that . . . we

gave her another chance but she

didn’t do her job,” she said.

Ms Hands said she had

missed some meetings due to

a lack of notifications from

council and the last meeting she

missed was a genuine mistake

due to a change of dates.

The notification issue has

since been addressed with chief

executive David Ward and Ms

Hands will be ensuring the

dates of her future meetings are

in her calender.

Ms Hands runs her own

business as an environment

consultant and works part-time

at food safety and bio-security

INCREASE: Retail trade in the district was up by 14 per cent in the year to

March. ​

Selwyn economy

keeps growing

THE DISTRICT’S economy continues

to grow as activity in some traditionally

strong sectors tapers off.

The latest quarterly economic monitor

from analysts Infometrics showed gross

domestic product growth in Selwyn at

4.4 per cent per annum in the year to

March.

This is well above average, with the

Canterbury region expanding

2.1 per cent in the same period,

and 2.7 per cent nationally.

Retail continues to grow in

the district, with tourism spend

one of the highlights in this

quarter.

Tourism-related spending

increased by 17 per cent in the

March year, outstripping the

regional increase of 12 per cent

and 9.3 per cent nationally.

Retail trade activity was up by 14 per

cent overall, with the Canterbury region

up by 3.5 per cent.

Rebuild-related projects continue to

soften, as house sales have decreased by

7.2 per cent compared with the previous

year.

Infometrics’ data shows building

consents were down, with the district

council issuing 202 new residential

building consents in the March quarter,

a decrease of 4.2 per cent annually compared

with the same period a year ago.

That’s consistent with district council

data, which shows that in the year to

May, a total of 851 building consent applications

were received, compared with

996 for the same time last year.

However, district council building

manager Vanessa Mitchell said in May

the district council issued 293 building

consents, up from 285 at the same time

last year.

“We have seen an increase in

building consents issued due to

increased staff numbers, meaning

we’ve been able to process consents

more quickly,” she said.

There has also been an increase

in commercial building consents,

attributed to current projects such

as the construction of a new primary

school in Lincoln worth $6.7

million.

In the 12 months to June, 330 resource

consents were received by the district

council, compared to 297 this time last

year, which is an increase of more than

10 per cent.

Mayor Sam Broughton said strong

commercial growth means the district is

heading beyond the re-build phase.

“Our maturing economy is providing

the commercial infrastructure that our

people need, while creating job opportunities

in Selwyn for local people,” he

said.

Four bars in Lincoln: Can they

Lincoln now has four

bars within a kilometre

of each other with the

opening of The Flaming

Rabbit. Can they all

survive? Reporter Emily

O’Connell explores

•The Flaming Rabbit

Owner Paul Goodwin says

Lincoln “needed the style” and

that’s why he’s opened The Flaming

Rabbit.

The name is taken from a large

scrub fire in Rolleston in the

1930s, spread by nor’west winds

and running rabbits. And yes,

rabbit, platter style, is on the

menu of the new bar, which is located

in the commercial area on

Vernon Dr, opposite New World.

Mr Goodwin, who owns the

bar with his wife Tessa, is also

mine host of the Merrin Street

Brewery Bar in Avonhead.

The bar is already getting

involved in the community. Mr

Goodwin said it helps with the

junior section of Springston

rugby and as the business grows,

they “will get involved with other

things”.

The bar is managed by Byron

Mann who says there is enough

business for four bars in Lincoln.

NEW: The Flaming Rabbit manager Byron Mann at the recently opened bar and restaurant.

PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER

“Everyone’s got their own

personality in what they do,” he

says.

But if you think the competition

will lead to a price war on

drinks and food, don’t hold your

breath.

He said at this stage they’re not

looking at doing loyalty cards

but instead they will look after

their regular customers through

shouting them a wine or nibbles.

•The Famous Grouse

Hotel

The Grouse is housed in Lincoln’s

biggest building on Gerald

St. It anchors the commercial area.

It was rebuilt after the original

125-year-old building was badly

damaged in the September 4,

2010, earthquake.

The hotel is owned by the Lincoln

Club, formed in 1969 as the

Ellesmere Country Club.

The club has 560 members

who enjoy cheaper drinks prices

than non-members and other

benefits. The club is always on

the lookout for new members.

Manager Will Stock also says

there is enough room for all in

the town.

“Lincoln is growing and it’s

great to see the hospitality offering

is growing with it,” he said.

Lincoln’s population is expected

to grow from 6500 to

9400 in 2025.

Mr Stock said the bars are different,

which is great for Lincoln.

The Grouse is a big sponsor of

community and sports groups.

But competition for customers

is just not at the bar. All four

bars have restaurants and that is

leading to changes in menus and

the way things are done to get

the hospitality dollar.

The Grouse also has

accommodation, with nine

•The Laboratory

Owner Martin Bennett

said the The Laboratory has a

number of points of differences

including its drink, food and

“the place itself.”

Mr Bennett said it has 10 beers

on tap which are brewed on-site.

The most popular is Isotopic

Pale Ale.

Another point of difference is

The Laboratory has no television

screens.

That because it’s a place where

you can get away from rugby

and other sports matches, he

says.

The Lab is not a place for first

year university students. Instead

it’s the post-graduate, foreign

students and professors who

frequent it, said Mr Bennett.

He said it’s too early to

tell whether the increase

in hospitality will lead to a

reduction in trade. “I’d like to

think that Lincoln’s big enough

but time will tell. I’d like to

think that perhaps with more

places in Lincoln, people will

go out more or go out to town

less and therefore we can all

survive,” he said.

Mr Bennett said The Flaming

Rabbit is not a competitor

as they both have “different

offerings.”

St John receives $180k

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

AN AMOUNT of $180,000 has

been raised for Selwyn St John

to help get a new ambulance on

the road.

Six Selwyn lions clubs have

spent more than two years fundraising

for the project.

The cheque was presented at

the Selwyn St John headquarters

in Rolleston on Thursday.

The funds were raised by the

Ellesmere, Malvern, Rolleston

and Districts, Halswell and

Christchurch Chinese Lions

Clubs.

St John Selwyn Central area

committee chairman John

Sunckell said they were absolutely

delighted with the club’s

effort, which would be a big help

to their ability to provide good

service.

It plans to have the new ambulance

ready to be consecrated at

a service to be held in the city in

September.

Rolleston and Districts Lions

Club member and past president

Bill Pickering said he was

pleased with the outcome as the

clubs have been working on the

project for “quite awhile.”

“It is a very satisfying outcome

because the district is going to be

better off,” he said.

About 3500 hours of volunteer

work has been put into raising

the funds for the ambulance.

The clubs have done a range of

fundraising projects including

selling wilding pines for Christmas

trees, selling pea straw and

catering for weddings or private

functions.

A grant was also obtained

from the Lions Clubs International

Foundation in Chicago for

$90,000 to ensure the success of

Schools need to sort car park issues

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SCHOOLS ACROSS Selwyn

have been told they have to sort

out their own car parking issues.

The decision was agreed on at

a Malvern Community Board

meeting.

It comes after

Greendale

School teacher

aide Jan

Douglas wrote

a letter to the

board saying it

was “unacceptable”

there

John Morten

are six spaces

for vehicles at

the school with up to 13 staff.

But it was decided school

board of trustees were “best

placed” to take the lead in ensuring

sufficient car parking around

the schools.

Greendale School principal

Carey-Anne Hamilton said the

school did not wish to comment

on the issue as they were dealing

with it themselves.

Selwyn Times previously

reported Glentunnel School and

Hororata Primary School had

been having car parking issues.

Glentunnel School principal

Dion Stechmann said the

school previously went through

PROBLEMS: The Malvern Community Board has decided it is up to school board of trustees to

solve car parking issues outside schools across the district. Greendale School staff have to park

on the grass verges due to a lack of car parking.

a process with the New Zealand

Transport Agency to make its car

parking outside the school safer.

He said all car parking outside

the school was designed in a way

which meant cars had to back

out onto Homebush Rd.

The school was hoping to

remove the grass verge at its

entrance to allow for more carparking.

But a NZTA spokeswoman

said it has a number of projects

which have a high safety priority

because of a history of crashes,

and this project was not deemed

to have the same priority.

Mr Stechmann said the school

was a “bit gutted” because it has

been left to its board of trustees

to do something and it does not

have the funding.

Hororata Primary School’s

principal Martyn Gameson did

not comment.

He made a submission to 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.

The district council’s transportation

asset engineer Mark

Chamberlain said no funds have

been set aside to upgrade the

school frontage.

But it has agreed to fix any

issues relating to previous works

it undertook when completing a

reseal on Bealey Rd in 2016.

District councillor John

Morten said the district council

has a policy where it doesn’t do

car parking for the schools.

He said the Ministry of Education

should cover parking for the

education facility.

Cr Morten said while has

sympathy for the schools in

need of additional car parking,

the district council has limited

resources and no other business

can get a resource consent without

providing car parking.

In Brief

DISTRICT PLAN REVIEW

Initial consultation on key draft

changes relevant to rural, business,

residential and districtwide

audiences in the district

plan is expected to start next

month. The consultation will

go for eight weeks. It’s expected

formal consultation on the

proposed district plan will begin

in March 2020, with new plan

becoming operative in March

Eighteen months of doing things a little

Rolleston College has

grown to around 440

pupils since it opened

18 months ago. Stacey

Bryan reports

ROLLESTON COLLEGE

principal Steve Saville said his

biggest achievement in the past

18 months has “becoming a fully

functioning school.”

“All the things you would expect

a normal school, that’s been

functioning for a long while to

have, we’ve managed to achieve,”

Mr Saville

said.

In addition,

the students

have had opportunities

that would be

rare in many

Steve Saville

schools, like

building a recycled,

sustainable

garden.

Said Mr Saville: “They had

to do all the design, put all the

plans through council, meet

with council to get planning

permission, do all the measuring

for it, figure out where the pipes

were and all that stuff, get all the

recycled material . . . they had to

build it all.”

This project is just one

LEARNING: Steve Saville, the principal of Selwyn’s youngest high school, Rolleston College, is

proud of how far they have come since opening 18 months ago. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

example of the flexible learning

model on the college is based.

Lessons are taught with an

authentic context by showing

the students how the curriculum

applies to real life. Students

have three 100min classes each

day, which are personalised,

specialised and integrated.

Personalised classes give

the students time to pursue

their own interests, specialised

classes are similar to optional,

non-compulsory subjects in

a traditional learning style,

and integrated classes cover

the basics like literacy and

numeracy.

The building reflects this flexibility,

with open spaces to teach

in and small rooms with moveable

walls for group projects.

But Mr Saville said that people

tend to think the school is more

“different” than it actually is.

“We have a flexible learning

space, it’s not open.

“All that means is that at times

it’s very traditional lessons.

Teacher at the front of a space

delivering a lesson. But it means

if we want to have group work, if

students need a different space to

do something . . . then it’s easier

to have that flexibility in a design

like this than a four-walled

room.”

Connected team senior

leader Rachel Skelton came

from teaching in a traditional

learning environment and

said the new system makes her

a better teacher. Having the

teachers working in teams meant

that when a year 10 class were

learning about the big bang

theory in science, Mrs Skelton

could collaborate and use it for

their creative writing topic too.

“It was some of the best

creative writing I’ve ever seen

from year 10 kids and I just

thought, for me, working here

allowed that to happen,” she

said.

Looking towards the future,

Mr Saville said he is excited

about bringing NCEA to the

school next year and having

senior students.

“Excited and nervous, of

course,” he said.

year 10 student Hamish

Heney began his education

in a school based on a

traditional learning model.

Three years in and he

was diagnosed with dyslexia,

something his mother,

Rebecca Heney, did not feel

the traditional school was

prepared for.

Mrs Heney said they

decided to move towards

a “more open learning

environment to give him a

bit more adaptability.”

Hamish said as soon as

he switched to the flexible

learning model he felt like

he “was actually learning

something.”

If the students at Rolleston

College do not understand

a lesson taught one

way, the teachers switch to

another method.

“They try to make it as

fun as possible for us,”

Hamish said.

Mrs Heney said it appears

the staff are teaching

the students without them

realising they are learning.

She said the students she

had heard of struggling

with the flexible learning

system had come from traditional

primary schools.

“These kids are being

asked to think for themselves

a bit more than what

we used to be allowed to in

school,” Mrs Heney said.

website

upgraded

THE DISTRICT council has

launched a new-look upgraded

website to make it easier for

residents to find information

online.

The upgraded site includes

much-improved search capability,

a fresh, clean design and a

new layout that helps guide users

to the pages they want.

The change marks the first

time in many years that the website

has been refreshed.

“Our old website had been in

the same format for around 10

years – with just a partial redesign

about five years ago,”said

business relationship manager

Stephen Hill.

“Although the site was working

okay, users were telling us it

was often hard to navigate and

to find the services they wanted.

“We also knew from research

that residents were looking for

more functions and information

to be available online.

Mr Hill says the district council

understands that it may take

a little time for some users to get

used to the new layout and advises

residents to get in contact if

they are having issues.

SELWYN RESIDENTS with

a passion for theatre are being

called upon to take part in

what will be one of the district’s

largest musicals.

Newly-formed theatre company

CentreStage Rolleston is

inviting as many people as possible

to go and audition for its

first production Joseph and the

Amazing Technicolor

Dreamcoat.

The show is a musical with

lyrics by Tim Rice and music by

Andrew Lloyd Webber.

It is based on the “coat of

many colours” story of Joseph

from the Bible’s Book of Genesis.

The company wants to meet as

many people as possible and see

what talent the area has to offer.

CentreStage Rolleston president

and director Phil Dean said

it wanted its first show to appeal

to a wide audience and it was

nice to present the show in the

community in its 50th anniversary

year.

Mr Dean said CentreStage

Rolleston was set up earlier this

year as result of a “big hunger

for performing arts” in the

township.

He recently made a

submission at the district

council’s Long Term Plan 2018-

2028, calling for a rehearsal

spaces and a performance

space of holding 500 patrons in

Rolleston.

A smaller 200-seated theatre

available to community groups

was also asked for.

Mr Dean asked for

consideration to be given to

including a performing and

rehearsal space in the recently

approved indoor sports facility

to be built at Foster Park.

The district council’s property

and commercial manager

Douglas Marshall said there is

no consideration the facility will

have a theatre-style performing

Thank you for

Fall Zones

community

To all of you who have had your

trees trimmed before they became

a problem, thank you for keeping all

the families in your community warm,

happy, healthy and connected.

You can be proud of the fact that you have allowed your

neighbours to stay warm, cook dinner and even charge

their mobile phones. You may not have realised that what

you’ve done has had much impact, but from all of us here

at Orion, we just want to say thank you.

Notice and Growth limit zones

A

Power line voltage A. Growth limit zone B. Notice zone

66,000 volts 4.0m 5.0m

33,000 volts 2.5m 3.5m

11,000 volts 1.6m 2.6m

400/230 volts 0.5m 1.5m

We’re not exaggerating.

On our network, 10-20% of all unplanned power outages are

caused by trees — including vegetation — coming into contact

with power lines. Other than this, fire damage to property from

branches sparking in dry conditions and serious injury from

electrocution from contact with trees touching power lines are

also possible consequences of not maintaining your trees.

How close is too close?

While most damage is caused by trees falling on power lines,

significant risk exists from trees merely touching them. This risk

increases the higher the voltage of the power line.

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees

and power lines, as defined in the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003, are outlined in the diagrams above.

All vegetation should be kept out of the growth limit zone and

preferably the notice zone.

Sometimes it may not be practical to have a tree trimmed at the

rate at which it grows and unfortunately, this means it may need

to be removed. Other situations may require trees to be removed,

most commonly when they are at a high risk of falling due to

disease or adverse weather events.

Where do I start?

Before you begin, remember to keep yourself, and those around

you, safe. We recognise that not everyone is experienced in tree

trimming and are happy to advise you on what to do. We can arrange

for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your expense, however

we recommend you hire professionals to safely carry out the work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within four

metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from

Orion before you start. As a tree owner, you may be liable for any

damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

Will I be fined if I don’t comply?

If a cut or trim notice is given to you and you fail to have the tree

trimmed and/or advise us of the time and location of the trim

without a reasonable excuse, this is an offence. This will make you

liable for a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues,

you will be liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every

day or part day during which the offence continues.

More info can be found on our website and if

you have any questions or notice any trees

touching power lines in your area, please call

us on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

Templeton quarry battle: Bring it on

Templeton Residents

Association

chairman

Garry Kilday

reacts to the

results of the

Yaldhurst

monitoring

programme.

THE RESIDENTS of Templeton

will have heard or read about

the outcome of Environment

Canterbury’s dust monitoring

programme and will be feeling

some concern.

While this outcome is a travesty

for the people of Yaldhurst being

hurt by these ruthless corporates,

the outcome itself came as no

surprise to the no quarry subcommittee.

We had anticipated this event

and it does not change our submission

process whatsoever, in

actual fact we believe it may help.

I believe that the dust monitors

were not reliable, hence the

results from them can not be

relied upon.

Ownership of the monitors

themselves seems to be a grey area.

Some believe they are paid

for by the quarry companies,

so if this is the case they would

have first dibs at the so called

“raw data” which ECan has been

talking about for some time, and

PROBLEMATIC: Dust at Winstone Aggregates quarry in Yaldhurst.

all evidence from that point on

would be compromised.

If this is the case, the Canterbury

District Health Board

and ECan are acting on flawed

information.

And of course with the wettest

four months for years in

Canterbury, getting any reading

is amazing. What will it be like

in mid-summer in a north-west

gale? Due to some inaccuracies/

major concerns reported by the

Yaldhurst group we will be writing

to ECan strategy and planning

director Katherine Trought,

to take up her offer of organising

a meeting with the chief medical

officer Alistair Humphrey and

ECan to discuss the results.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

The admission by a representative

of ECan that their inability to

monitor compliance at the first

and second community meeting

was confirmed at a recent meeting

with Ms Trought and ECan

chairman, Steve Lowndes. They

went as far as to say it is about

three years behind around all

compliance issues.

In addition to meeting with

ECan, we have also met with

Selwyn District Council regarding

its Long Term Plan quarry

regulatory requirement.

This was also extremely helpful

and has clarified a few more

points.

It is my belief that Fulton

Hogan may now put in its application

early to try and catch

us unaware, so for those who are

planning on putting in a submission,

please be ready.

The no quarry sub-committee

will not be changing anything in

our submission so with that in

mind, bring it on.

We will be re-extending an

invitation to Fulton Hogan to

SELWYN TIMES

NEW: Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall and Prebbleton

community association committee chairman Peter

Hunter with a new radar speed sign which has been

installed to help slow traffic in the area. ​

Mike Green responds to an

article about the Prebbleton

community association

committee buying a radar

speed sign for Springs Rd

Mike Green – Have just

read the article in the Selwyn

Times regarding speed

signs. Unfortunately I have

experienced their ineffectiveness

around Selwyn, namely Brookside

Rd and Dunns Crossing Rd near

the new school. Many times I have

witnessed cars approaching these

signs in excess of the 50km/h to

be flashed at with the sign saying

‘slow down’. At least eight out of 10

cars take no notice whatsoever. The

sign keeps flashing as these cars

approach with no slowing until they

pass the sign and the process starts

all over again when the next car

approaches.

Being long straight roads the

signs pick up motorists at a good

distance, but in spite of the slow

down flashing it is obvious that

many motorists couldn’t give a

damn. Now if they thought that a

camera would catch them along

with a fine, then they might slow

down, but unfortunately too many

motorists know that won’t happen

and are happy to break the speed

limit. Until motorists can see a

financial deterrent, such as a fine

and points, then these signs are

not going to slow them down. They

will remain anti-social. Happy to

be proved wrong but I’ve seen it too

many times.

District council

environmental services

manager Tim Harris responds

to an article about the

Templeton Quarry

The article ‘Quarry, properties

space bid’ (June 20, 2018) is

factually incorrect on a significant

element. The story asserts that “the

Selwyn District Plan committee has

decided to include setbacks in the

District Plan but it will not specify

how far away a quarry must be from

a property”.

This is not the case. The

committee has in fact requested

only that setbacks be included as

a possible option in forthcoming

consultation with stakeholders and

the wider community. No decision

has been made on whether setbacks

will be included in the final District

Plan. The process of reviewing the

Selwyn District Plan is currently

at the stage of preparing preferred

option reports on a variety of

topics, including quarrying. Initial

public consultation on these

topics will be carried out in the

second half this year, and further

consultation will take place when

the proposed District Plan is

formally notified, expected to be in

early 2020.

Readers respond to an

article about the district

council likely to review

funding for a cycleway/

walkway between Glentunnel

and Whitecliffs

Rosalie Snoyink – Bringing

forward the Whitecliffs to

Glentunnel shared cycle/walkway

into the district council’s 2020/21

budget is a welcome idea. It will

link up the existing, popular

Coalgate to Glentunnel cycle/

walkway.

I’m amazed at the pedestrian and

cycling traffic using the Coalgate

to Glentunnel facility since its

completion.

As a more “senior” cyclist, I often

bike from Glentunnel to Coalgate,

and now look forward to biking to

Whitecliffs on a similar, safe, scenic

cycleway.

Laura Williams – I’m thrilled

that the Glentunnel/Whitecliffs

route is getting more attention.

It’s a really dangerous stretch and

I’ve seen a lot of near misses so I’m

uncomfortable biking or walking

there to visit friends.

I hate to think of kids making

their way to school around those

blind corners. It’s a massive safety

hazard so should definitely take

precedence.

John Geary reacts to the

district council’s decision to

support an online voting trial

in principle

John Geary – Just a thought –

after the census problems with

our elderly folk not always computer

literate, why not post out postal

forms to all voters over 65, giving

them the option?

NOW

FOR 2018

Since the early ‘80s, artist Ashley Smith has lived and worked

from a crumbling, windswept headland on the North Canterbury

coast. He bought the land after discovering, during the course of

a six year global odyssey, that his juices liked being near the sea

and were most stimulated by his home region’s crazy weather

patterns.

“The sudden shifts of life’s flow passing through and around us;

culturally, meteorologically, personally, always have the power

to surprise.

You’re an island nation of pristine waters and clamorous birdcall

when a sail broaches the horizon…

You glance up from an endless summer to find a rampaging

southerly bearing down on you. …A young family-man, raising a

home on a rural headland, a moment’s distraction and suddenly

you’re an old, bald bloke rummaging for the car keys and your

friend’s name…” Ashley Smith

Ashley Smith hopes these paintings, from a milestone period of

his life will, like life’s gearshifts, have the power to surprise.”

Community centre ‘exciting news’

Bill Woods responds to a

district council decision

on hall rates

Just to let you know that I

am really annoyed about the

district council proceeding

with its proposal to place a

standard rate on all halls and

reserves. The council claims

this rate is more equitable

but if you have a look at

the figures, it only benefits

the towns that have large

payments on their halls.

Those towns had a ballot to

proceed with their hall and

now they want the rest of the

district to pay for their selfimposed

debts.

The proposal is not fair on

the towns that have paid for

their halls in the past and the

committees which run them

work hard to keep the rates for

their hall as low as possible.

I have canvassed only a couple

of people but so far there is

real opposition to the rate.

Driscoll

talks about

what’s going

on in the

community

RECENTLY WE heard the

exciting news that the new

Hororata Community Centre to

be built on the Hororata Domain

has been included in the district

council’s Long Term Plan.

This project is the result of a

collaborative effort between the

Hororata Community Trust and

Go Hororata, a collective group

of community organisations

which have worked together to

develop the community centre

concept and present it to the

district council.

The Hororata Domain is a

wonderful venue for all sorts of

activities and annual events run

by different community groups,

including the Hororata Pig and

Possum Hunt, Hororata Swap

Meet, Hororata Parish Spring

Fair and the Hororata Highland

Games.

These events, along with others

held throughout our district, are

part of the fabric of the community

and make the area a great

place to live and visit. The new

community centre will enhance

existing events and provide more

opportunities for different activities,

as well as a facility to enable

our communities to congregate.

This year’s Hororata Night

Glow, staged by the Hororata

Community Trust, proved yet

again what our communities can

achieve.

One of the main aims of the

night glow was to establish the

festival as a major contributor

to the fundraising for the new

Hororata Community Centre.

The Hororata Community

Trust feels this aim has been

achieved and is looking to grow

the event in the future.

Now the community centre is

confirmed, we are turning our

efforts to more detailed planning

which will include community

Tai Tapu Community Centre

now open

Selwyn Awards seeks people’s

vote for new prize

Voting is now open for the new People’s Choice Award as part of

this year’s Selwyn Awards.

The Selwyn Awards are held every two years, and seek to recognise

individuals and organisations for outstanding work or inspirational

achievements.

All nominees in all categories of the 2018 awards are eligible for

the People’s Choice Award which will be decided entirely by online

public vote.

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says this is an opportunity for the

community to get even more involved in the awards.

“This is the first time in the history of the Selwyn Awards that this

option has been included,” he says.

“I’m excited that the public has the opportunity to have their say on

who they think is deserving in our community.”

The Selwyn Awards will be recognised at a Gala Dinner at the

Lincoln Event Centre on Saturday 4 August 2018, where all

nominees will be celebrated and the winners in each of the 10

categories, including People’s Choice, will be announced.

Every person who votes goes into the draw to win two tickets to the

Selwyn Awards 2018 Gala Dinner.

Voting closes on Saturday 28 July.

Votes are limited to one per person (multiple votes by one person

will be removed).

See www.selwynawards.co.nz for more information and the online

voting form.

The construction of the new Tai Tapu Community Centre has been completed and the facility is

ready for community use.

The $4.6m (projected total) facility, located at Rhodes Park, is a community-driven initiative which

replaces two earthquake damaged and outdated halls in the township.

The community centre is now accepting bookings from anyone who wishes to use the facility,

however exterior work including landscaping will be completed over the next few months, as

some of the work can’t be completed during winter.

An official opening ceremony is planned for mid-August, so that everyone who was involved in the

planning and construction of the new community centre can be present.

Council Major Projects Manager, John Reid, says it’s exciting to see the new facility operational

and hopes the community will start using it straight away.

“The new Tai Tapu Community Centre is a brilliant community asset and it’s ready for everyone to

enjoy. This facility is a very good example of a community-driven project with the Selwyn District

Council providing guidance and support.

The new facility features three community rooms with a total capacity in excess of 500 people –

each room has access to kitchen and bar facilities. It also has changing rooms, public toilets, and

a large roofed outdoor courtyard.

The first major public event held at the new Tai Tapu Community Centre was the Waihora Rugby

Club’s club day which was held over the weekend.

Fresh look for Council website

Selwyn District Council has launched a new look, upgraded website

to make it easier for residents to find information and do business

with the Council.

The upgraded site includes much-improved search capability,

mobile responsiveness, a fresh, clean design and a new layout that

helps guide users to the pages they want.

The change marks the first time in many years that the website has

been refreshed. “Our old website had been in the same format for

around 10 years – with just a partial redesign about five years ago,”

says Council’s Business Relationship Manager Stephen Hill.

Although the site was working okay, users were telling Council it

was a bit clunky.

The home page is now much more informative and engaging, with

clear links to our most popular pages and services, plus news and

events sections, and links to our current consultations and to other

council sites.

We know there will be some things we still need to work on, and if

people do find issues that need attention, they can drop us a line

through the contact page. We hope people enjoy using the new site.

Native beetle mania

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

THERE ARE approximately

140 species of chafer or scarab

beetles in New Zealand.

These beetles have larvae that

feed in the soil on roots and, as

adults, they feed on the foliage

of many plant species.

The most well known scarab

in New Zealand is the native

grass grub beetle, costelytra

zealandica, present in most

pastures, gardens or lawns.

The larvae of these beetles

live in the soil and are

characteristically C-shaped,

creamy-whitish grubs with

three pairs of slender legs and a

darker head.

Odontria species are chafers,

larger in size with fuzzy/velvety

appearance, while costelytra

species are smoother and more

shiny.

Adults often fly at dusk about

30min after sunset for about

30min and are attracted to

lights. They usually land on

trees or shrubs where they

forage on leaves and mate

before laying eggs in the soil

where the larvae spend their life

before pupating near the soil

surface.

Even contest at top of netball table

• By Jacob Page

GREENPARK A and Lincoln

gifted top spot in the Selwyn

premier netball competition

to Broadfield after the two

teams played out a 61-61 draw

at Lincoln Event Centre on

Saturday.

The intrigue continues during

the second round of the competition,

with the top three teams

seemingly even.

Broadfield’s comfortable 72-

41 win over Greenpark B saw

them go to the top of the table

with three wins and a draw.

Greenpark A and Lincoln

both have two wins and two

draws from their four games to

sit in second equal.

Southbridge A ousted their

clubmates Southbridge B 45-40

to move off the bottom of the

table.

Lincoln coach Vanessa

Robinson said while they had

their chance to win the game,

with a one goal lead in the final

minute, she was pleased with

the overall effort.

“The girls really wanted it in

that final quarter and maybe we

would have had it if we’d kept a

bit more composure, but I can’t

fault the effort,” she said.

Lincoln ran out to an early

six goal advantage in the first

quarter but trailed by the same

margin in the third quarter.

“In the first round we lost to

both of these teams and now, in

round two, we have drawn with

both of them so our results are

tracking in the right direction.”

Robinson praised the work of

mid-courter Char Porima after

she moved in to centre to help

steady the side, both on attack

and defence.

Broadfield is set to face a

sterner test this Saturday when

they face Greenpark A in the

battle for top position.

Lincoln will play Southbridge

B and Greenpark B will play

Southbridge A.

Results – Southbridge A 45,

Southbridge B 40; Greenpark A

61, Lincoln A 61; Broadfield A

72, Greenpark B 41.

Points – Broadfield A 14,

Greenpark A 12, Lincoln 12,

Greenpark B 6, Southbridge A

4, Southbridge B 1.

Another tight win for Lincoln Combined

SPORTS

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN Combined’s habit of

winning close games continued

on Saturday when they beat

St Andrew’s College 19-15 at

Lincoln High.

Two second half tries to captain

Wil Gualter helped Lincoln

Combined consolidate third on

the UC Championship table and

get the team their fifth straight

win.

It is their fourth win under

four points this season. Lincoln

Combined have seven wins from

nine game and have 32 points.

They are two points ahead of

fourth-placed St Bede’s College

and five points ahead of St Andrew’s

in fifth.

Lincoln Combined coach Mike

Wilson said his team made their

best start to a game this season,

but after trailing 12-7 at halftime,

it was the class of Gualter

and some stern defence which

got them home.

“That’s the thing that’s impressed

me the most this year,

the way we just stick to our task,”

he said. “Tactically, I thought

we were very good early on, our

option taking and kicking game

really impressed me.”

It was a strong tackle on the

goal line from replacement back

Cole Spinks which preserved the

lead late in the piece. St Andrew’s

had a superior maul all game but

with back-to-back penalties, they

chose to scrum as opposed to use

their lineout drive.

“That sort of win against a

good rugby school really means

a lot to our boys,” Wilson said. “I

think the boys are really thriving

on working hard to win their

games.

“They’re working hard for each

other and it’s creating a good

atmosphere at trainings.”

Wilson said he was impressed

with the locking combination

of Sean Lemon and Sam Scott,

as well as the defensive efforts of

Josh Brown at centre.

Lincoln’s will play Waimea

Combined at home on Saturday

in a game they will be favoured

to win against the 12th-placed

team in the competition.

UNBEATEN WAIHORA did

enough to outlast Springston

23-17 on their club day at Tai Tapu

on Saturday,

The six-point win maintains

Waihora’s perfect record in the

Ellesmere senior rugby competition

after six rounds.

The result leaves Springston, which

earned a surprise but deserved semifinal

spot in the combined country

competition, languishing in seventh

– five points outside the top four.

Darfield dented Lincoln’s top four

chances while underlining their

title credentials with a 36-17 away

victory.

The result sets up an intriguing

match-up on Saturday when Lincoln

travels to Springston with both

teams desperate to re-ignite their top

four chances.

Southbridge maintained their grip

on third spot but were made to work

a lot harder than many predicted to

beat cellar-dwellers Hornby 21-14 at

home in their Murray Cooper Shield

match. Fourth-placed Prebbleton

were the big losers in round six after

being hammered 41-14 by BDI.

BDI have been more competitive

in the early stages of the Ellesmere

competition than they were in the

combined country competition, and

have moved up to sixth, just three

points outside the top four.

Rolleston moved themselves away

from the wooden spoon with a 19-10

away victory over West Melton.

On Saturday Hornby try to slay

Goliath when they host Waihora

at Denton Park, Rolleston will host

Southbridge, BDI travel to take on

Big future expected

Proud supporters of

Rugby & Netball in Selwyn

for promising Lincoln University first-five

• By Gordon Findlater

RAMEKA POIHIPI became the

latest Lincoln University player

to turn out for the Crusaders

after a surprise call-up to play

the French Barbarians.

Poihipi, 19, moved south to

Christchurch last year after

standout seasons playing at firstfive

for Hamilton Boys’ High

School in 2015 and 2016 which

saw him heralded as one of the

most promising players coming

out of secondary school.

“A big part of the decision was

to be able to both study and play

rugby . . . it’s obviously a really

successful university that has

had some great players come

through,” said Poihipi.

After playing predominantly at

colts level for Lincoln University

last year, he has stepped up

this season and become a key

component of the Hawkins Cup

side. Poihipi was also the leading

title with Lincoln University.

scorer during the cup campaign

with 122 points.

That form saw him called

into the Crusaders for a couple

of training sessions where he

made enough of an impression

to make his debut at second-five

for the team against the French

Barbarians on June 15, before

heading to Perth to play the

Western Force.

“I was really surprised . . . I’d

been training with them for

a couple of sessions and just

assumed I was there to make

up numbers, so I was really

honoured when I found out I

was going to be playing,” said

Poihipi.

“It was surreal. You see all

these guys on TV and next

minute you’re rubbing shoulders

with them and being welcomed

into their environment with

open arms.”

On Saturday Poihipi returned

to club duties, playing at firstfive

for Lincoln University in

their 30-15 win over University

to move to the top of Hawkins

Trophy table with just two

rounds remaining before the

semi-finals. However, he only

lasted 30min after suffering a

knee injury.

You only need to look 12

month’s back from that club

final to see the odds of Poihipi

going onto bigger things are in

his favour. The 2016 Lincoln

University team that won

the metro final against New

Brighton consisted of a backline

made up of Jordie Barrett,

Caleb Makene, Jack Goodhue,

Harrison Groundwater, Josh

McKay, Brett Cameron and Ere

Enari.

Since then Barrett and

Goodhue have both gone onto

represent the All Blacks. McKay,

Enari and Cameron have all

played at Super Rugby level,

while Makene and Groundwater

have both played Mitre 10 Cup.

Poihipi also has genetics on his

side. His father – also Rameka

Poihipi – played 61 games at

halfback for the Bay of Plenty

Steamers between 1994 and

2002.

For now Poihipi says he’s

remaining grounded with his

eye on a club title before pushing

his case for game time with

Canterbury in the Mitre 10 Cup.

• By Jim Doyle

LINCOLN University pulled off

another come-from-behind win

on Saturday, beating University

30-15 at Ilam in the third round

of section play for the Hawkins

Trophy premier metro rugby

championship.

The UC Vipers sank the fangs

into the Rams twice in the first

half of this intriguing contest,

and led 15-12 at half-time.

The Rams did have a bit of

luck. Two of the tries came

from intercepts, a third from a

charged-down clearing kick.

Lincoln’s first try, just 4min

into the game, was the best of

the match.

From set play – a scrum –

George Stratton smacked into

his marker from second-five,

in spite of the ferocity of the

impact, Stratton off-loaded to

Connor Garden-Bachop, who

had come across from the right

wing.

There was a groan from the

bench as Garden-Bachop, with

Caleb Makene outside him, took

the ball into heavy contact, but

Garden-Bachop rode a double

tackle and slipped the ball away

to Makene, who scored in the

corner.

The second-best try was scored

by University’s Brayden Ennor,

who hit a short pass at full tilt

from 45m out and had the pace

to go all the way.

The clash between Ennor and

Lincoln’s Ngane Punivai, back

from New Zealand under-20

duties, shaped as a beauty. But

Ennor was taken off at half-time

and Punivai finally succumbed

to a leg knock later.

That brought George Stratton

back after a very short substitution

break.

Stratton continued to amaze.

He hurled himself into the fray

on attack and defence, no matter

how large the obstacle in front

of him. No 7 Connor Gordon

was in similar form as a human

dynamo and won the top accolade

from the coaches, just ahead

of the abrasive, non-stop John

Borland.

University gave it a good shot

for a fair chunk of the match.

With players like Ennor and

Seamus Bardoul in midfield,

plus captain Sam Godwin in

the No 6 jersey, the Vipers

can’t be taken lightly. No 8

Matthew Letoga scored a good

try as part of a useful all-round

performance.

There was some concern for

the Rams when Rameka Poihipi

was carried off with a knee

injury at the 30min mark.

Support staff seem more sure

this time that Brett Cameron

will be ready on Saturday when

the Rams take on New Brighton

at home.

Scorers: Lincoln University 30

dISCOVER

West Melton Kindergarten,

Nursery and Learning Centre

The West Melton Learning Centre

Kaiako and tamariki for the last couple of

months, have been focusing on learning

all about people who help us and keep us

safe, not only in our own community but

other professions within our society who

might help us too. We took a walk around

our local area, visiting the people in the

shopping centre, who made our large group

of children feel very welcome.

We enjoyed numerous visitors into the

centre including two police officers that

brought a car and motorbike with them.

The tamariki had a turn in the car turning

on the siren and sitting on the bike. We

had a visit from an ambulance officer with

an ambulance also, which was so valuable

for the tamariki to have a good look inside

and hear how the St John officer might help

them. Finally, we invited two volunteer

firefighters’. We learnt all about how to keep

safe and enjoyed trying on the huge fire

helmets and equipment too.

The tamariki have also been learning

about other professions who might help

them too such as optometrist, surf lifesaving,

dentist, doctors, nurses, nutritionist

etc, learning about real life roles and

opportunities for children to share their

experiences.

All of these discussions have been so

valuable to the tamariki and have given

them an insight into what all these services

do within our community and how they

can help us. Having the opportunity to

discuss and have their questions answered

have allowed the tamariki to explore,

discover and make sense of the community

around them and make connections and

links to the wider world too. Thank you

to all the local businesses and people who

have visited us.

West Melton section

demand strong

The popularity of sections in the 2000m2 to 2500m2

range has been so great that Wilfield subdivision

in West Melton has reconfigured its stage plan to

incorporate more in this size bracket.

Launched in 2015, Wilfield offers sections

that range from 900m2 up to 6500m2 with

prices starting at $245,000.

Hamish Wheelans, director of Gillman

Wheelans, developer of the subdivision,

said that demand in the subdivision has

been across the board, both in size of

sections purchased and buyer demographic.

“There has been strong demand for the

900m2 to 1500m2 sections as well as our

biggest offerings, but it is in this 2000m2 to

2500m2 range where present demand lies,”

he said.

Wilfield has proven extremely popular

with purchasers since launch, with 130

sections having been sold in less than three

years. This has seen the development of an

adventure playground and tennis court as

well as the recent opening of a new preschool.

“The growth of Wilfield and our

neighbouring subdivision of Preston

Downs is synonymous with the growth

of West Melton since the Christchurch

earthquakes. As well as the new retail

area, the West Melton Community

and Recreation Centre is scheduled for

completion later this year. As a sponsor of

the Centre, we are looking forward to that

date as we know it will become a focal point

for the community,” he said.

The Wilfield sales office is open every

Wednesday and Sunday, 1pm to 3pm.

If you are coming from Christchurch

on West Coast Rd, there are signs as

you approach West Melton providing

directions to the sales office. Or you

are welcome to phone or email one of

the team to make a time that suits on

enquiries@yoursection.nz.

New bulk cartage business

servicing Selwyn District

In October last year, two Selwyn residents with long-term experience in operational

management roles in the transport industry decided to join forces and set up their own

transport company to service the district.

Steve Menzies and Tony Howe purchased four trucks from Taylor Contractors and

established their new Rolleston-based company, Transcon Ltd, to provide bulk cartage of

grains, fertilisers and stock foods to the farming sector in the Selwyn District, and across

Canterbury.

“We decided to do it for ourselves,” says Steve, which has proved to be a good decision.

Business has taken off, and this has seen the company fleet being expanded to seven

trucks.

Also, within just the last few weeks, Transcon has added a new service – mini readymix,

which provides concrete loads of up to three metres for smaller rural and residential jobs

such as driveways, paths, shed foundations and fencing.

“All concrete is batched on site so can meet the customer’s desired specification. Our

ready mix operation can operate 24/7 to suit when you want concrete,” Steve says.

Transcon employs four full-time staff members, who are from the area, and Steve and

Tony are very pleased to be providing jobs and servicing their local region with a fast and

efficient cartage service.

For further information

phone 0508 872 672.

Lamb leads boost

in meat exports

The value of lamb exports hit a new

record of $369 million in May 2018,

Statistics NZ announced last Wednesday,

with higher prices and more quantities of

lamb exported boosting the May level. The

previous high for lamb exports was $340

million in February 2009.

“It has been a strong month for meat

exports in general, with both lamb and

beef increasing in quantities,” international

statistics manager Tehseen Islam said. Meat

exports were up $119 million (17 per cent)

to $812 million. Quantity was also up 12

per cent.

Lamb exports were the biggest

contributor to the rise in meat, with value

up $89 million (32 per cent) and quantity

up 22 per cent. Exports of lamb were up to

all major markets, including China and the

European Union.

Beef exports were up $16 million (4.5 per

cent) to $359 million, with more exports to

China. This increase was partly offset by a

fall to the United States.

Overall exports were up $509 million (10

per cent) to $5.4 billion, with meat exports

having the largest increase. This exports

total is the second highest for any month.

The highest exports total was $5.5 billion in

December 2017.

Forestry products had the second-largest

increase in exports, up $99 million (26 per

cent) to $477 million. The largest increases

were to China, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

Top tips for planting over winter

In the midst of winter, Rachel Vogan provides a

few top growing tips

COLD NIGHTS and clear days

are good for the garden. Plus,

the frosts that kill many insect

and bug problems are generally

followed by a sunny day, making

clean-up and pruning tasks

rather pleasant.

Over the next few weeks

pruning should be front of

mind; a good winter clean-up

now will pay dividends in the

upcoming season. The basics

of pruning and cutting back

is to limit the size of the plant,

which allows more light and

air movement into the plant’s

centre, and to always remove

any damaged or diseased limbs.

Don’t be afraid to use your

loppers liberally.

Another focus can be any

trees, shrubs or roses that are

in the wrong spot. These can be

moved now, just remember to

dig the new hole first or have any

pots ready and waiting.

Vegetables

Parsnips should be on the

menu now as a winter staple. Did

you know that you do not need

to harvest them all at once? Once

they mature they can be left in

the ground until mid-spring,

saving you room in the fridge.

This crop can only be grown

from seed sown in October or

November, while the soil is still

cool.

Keep planting garlic. Hunt

out the fattest cloves you can

find and aim to get them in

the ground as soon as possible.

Seedlings will appear in the

shops soon as well.

Spring onions, spinach, winter

lettuce and mustard can all be

transplanted into the ground

now too.

Crop cover

Just like humans, parts of the

garden like a little protection

from the cold elements. Frost

cloth is a good option to cover

up tender citrus and climbers,

and portable cloches and

vegetable frames take the chill off

the soil to speed up the growing

process of many winter edible

crops. Crop frames are easy to

make from materials you may

have at home. Net curtains work

well when stretched between

bamboo canes or if you have old

windows about the place, prop

these up on some bricks or slabs

to offer protection.

Water features

At this time of year, algae

can quickly build up in water

gardens, mostly because of

fallen leaves. Remove leaves as

soon as they fall to help control

the problem. Now is also a

good time to empty ponds and

features that are small enough to

do so.

Once empty, allow to fully

dry out and treat the area with a

pre-algae treatment, which you

will find in the garden centres.

In cold areas, float a ball in the

water to prevent small ponds and

features from freezing.

Fruit trees

Plant bare-rooted trees now.

July and August are some of

the best months of the year to

plant deciduous fruit trees like

apples, peaches, pears, apricots,

cherries, plums and nectarines.

They cope better with planting

out as the plants are in a state of

dormancy, limiting transplant

shock, which can happen if

planted in the warmer months.

For gardens where space is

limited, consider planting

double or triple-grafted fruit

trees, this not only saves space

but allows you to enjoy a wider

variety of harvest.

Seeds, seeds and more seeds

On those cold days when

venturing outdoors isn’t an

option, start thinking about

what crops you want to grow in

this upcoming season. All the

seed catalogues are out now, and

available online.

It’s also a good time to stock

up on seed-sowing essentials

like seed-raising mix, seedling

trays and labels, etc.

A good idea is to share seeds

with friends – often I find there

are too many seeds for just my

garden so passing around excess

plants or seeds with others saves

space and time, and makes it

fun too.

Couplands

The inviting aroma of fresh bread delivered twice

every day is just one of the reasons people in the

Rolleston community are flocking to the longawaited

Couplands Bakery now open in Rolleston

Square. The ninth outlet in the Canterbury region,

the Rolleston Couplands offers the popular

bakery’s full range of tasty breads, as well as

delicious cakes, donuts and slices, ideal for

morning and afternoon teas, and popping into

the lunch box. The bakery employs 12 staff,

most of them local residents, and they are

there to serve customers seven days a week

from 7am-6pm.

Rolleston

Square

Hachi Hachi

Casual, fresh and friendly sums up the new

Hachi Hachi Japanese restaurant and takeaway in

Rolleston Square. Offering truly authentic Japanese

fare, Hachi Hachi is also known as the ‘Home of the

Sushi Burger’, with the burger featuring sushi patties

as the bun and delicious fillings such as fish or

chicken. Another signature item is their very popular

Karaage Chicken, a crispy chicken dish.

Hachi Hachi also offers catering, with fresh sushi

platters a healthy option to enjoy while watching the

rugby. Phone 972 5459 to order. All their dishes

are price-friendly too, and they are open from

10.30am-8.30pm seven days.

Lazeez

Increasing numbers of Rolleston and

Burnham customers coming to the well-established

Lazeez Mediterranean Grill in Marshland Road

has prompted expansion to Rolleston. The only

Mediterranean food outlet in the local area, Lazeez

Mediterranean Grill in Rolleston Square offers delicious

Souvlaki, Hot Grill Salads, Moroccan Tagine, and

many more tasty dishes. A family of four can dine for

around $50, with average prices at $14-$16 for dine

in and takeaway items. Plus, they only use eco-friendly

packaging – no plastic. Lazeez Mediterranean Grill

Rolleston Square is open 10am-9.30pm seven

days a week. To order, phone 03 925 9897.

If pizza is your passion, or your secret vice,

the new Hell Pizza in Rolleston Square

has everything you crave. Their extensive

range of tasty pizza toppings are 100%

free range, and include chicken, ham,

pepperoni, onions, olives, jalapenos, bacon,

tomato, cheese, pineapple and more.

these winter nights with a flaming hot

in appearance medicine and skin technology for

almost 25 years. To book a consultation at Caci

Rolleston, phone 03 347 7078, email enquiriesrolleston@caci.co.nz.

Pita Pit

Nail Bar

Since arriving at Rolleston Square in April, the

popular takeaway franchise Pita Pit has proved

a hit for its signature fresh, healthy pita bread

sandwiches with a variety of tasty fillings. Now a

new Gourmet Range has been introduced, featuring

pre-set salad fillings to provide faster service for

customers. A qualified chef was brought in to suggest

the ingredients and the result is another delectable

Pita Pit selection. Toasted, they are even tastier.

There are also more vegan and vegetarian choices,

while organic drinks and soft drinks complete the

range. School lunches, catering and online ordering

available. Open seven days from 10am.

There’s a relaxing, family-friendly vibe at The Nail

Bar in Rolleston Square, with special offers for

mothers, children and grandparents. So when

Mum comes in for a manicure, and brings a child

under seven with her, the child receives a free

finger painting. Same for a pedicure – the child

receives a free toe painting. If a grandparent

comes with the customer, they receive a free

nail cutting. There’s also a 10 per cent discount

for students. And with 300 colours in gel nails

and almost 400 nail varnish colours there’s a

colour to suit every customer at The Nail Bar,

Shop 36 Rolleston Square.

Industria

Another newcomer to Rolleston Square, Industria,

is sure to become a regular destination for Selwyn

shoppers looking for something different in designer

homewares, furniture, gifts, artworks and accessories.

This attractive and quirky store has a strong focus on

sustainable and ethical products, with the majority of

them designed and/or made in New Zealand. Owner

Janine Reese and her staff members Bronwyn and Mel

are all Rolleston residents and are enjoying meeting

customers from right across the Selwyn district.

The friendly team look forward to taking care of your

shopping requirements and also offer complimentary

gift wrapping - a specialty and a pleasure!

Building blocks

to a new home

As Cantabrians continue to move forward, when building

a new home, here’s a reminder to pay attention to some of

the fine details...

Anyone intending to build a new home

should have the builder’s contract

checked out by an experienced lawyer.

A payment schedule can also

minimise financial risks. Issues that

you may have to deal with include:

the deposit, guarantees and warranties

If you want to compare building

companies, it’s important to get down

to finer details such as how many

power points there are per room, the

type of windows you are having or

which paint finishes are included.

Questions to ask

builders include:

• Do you have a completion guarantee

and how does it work?

• Is there a loss of deposit

guarantee?

• Is the company a

Registered Master Builder

and does it use thirdparty

written guarantees?

• What is the schedule for

payments?

• How are the deposit and

progress payments

administered?

• Are they held in a solicitor’s trust

fund?

• Will the master franchisor complete

the build if the franchisee goes out

of business

• What are the exact specs?

• Are the prices fixed?

• What is excluded from the build?

• Are there any restrictions on

driveways or any other connections?

• Can you speak with clients who

have just completed a build?

Do your homework before you decide

on a building company and you will

have a less stressful time once the

building process starts.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Peter Ray Homes

The Statham is a stunning three

bedroom home, one of at least 40

designs brought to you by Peter Ray

Homes.

Peter Ray Homes has been building

beautiful family homes for nearly

30 years, and has a solid reputation

supported by a highly qualified,

friendly professional team.

The Statham, at 574 East Maddisons

Road in Faringdon, is one of several

Peter Ray Show Homes in the

Christchurch area. It is a 205 m2

(floor area), plaster and cedar exterior,

contemporary home with three

bedrooms, two bathrooms and two

living areas.

From the raised ceiling entrance,

the Statham opens to a large living

space and dining area, with plenty of

natural light and access to outdoors.

Another living space to relax in, with

ceiling bulkhead, is accessed via doors

off the living area.

The kitchen is central to the

spacious living and dining areas.

Roomy and well-appointed, it is ideal

for entertaining, with easy access

to the outdoors, or for seating the

children with snacks at the grand,

long island. The walk-in pantry is very

generous with lots of shelf and bench

space. A study nook in the dining area

is far enough away from the action for

some quiet, but still within the main

living area, and close to the fridge.

Off the short hallway are two very

generous sized bedrooms, each

with sizeable wardrobes, the family

bathroom and separate toilet, and

laundry with plenty of storage space.

The master bedroom receives lots

of light via sliding doors and feature

windows. A large walk-in wardrobe

is actually a ‘walk-through’ to the en

suite.

Attention to detail sets this show

home apart from many others. The

feature wallpaper in the second living

room; vinyl plank – ‘Country Oak’

– flooring throughout the kitchen,

bathroom and laundry; soft-close

cabinets; acrylic edge counter tops;

raised garden beds and practical

landscaping and decking – these

represent well the design and build

quality Peter Ray Homes is known for.

As with all Peter Ray Homes

designs, changes can be made to this

design to suit, or the design team

will work with you to produce an

individual design to suit you and your

section. If you don’t have a section,

they can also help find the best one

for you.

The Statham Show Home in

Faringdon is a great example of the

quality Peter Ray Homes clients

can expect. It is open 7 days, 12 till

4 o’clock. All the house designs are

Should I buy an apartment?

13

Apartments are springing up

everywhere. In the year ended March 31,

building consents for new apartments

rose nearly 28 per cent. The majority

of first home buyers may still prefer

houses (research by CoreLogic earlier

this year found that about 10 per cent of

apartments were sold to people buying

their first home), this number may rise as

the housing landscape changes.

Buying an apartment or townhouse

can be an affordable way to live close to a

city centre or other popular areas where

standalone houses can be expensive.

Recent research by the Real Estate

Institute of New Zealand (REINZ)

found that apartments presented a more

economical option if you want to live in

sought-after areas like Parnell or Epsom

in Auckland, or Mount Victoria and

Thorndon in Wellington.

Apartments may seem like a lowmaintenance

choice – no exterior walls to

paint or lawns to mow – but they come

with their own particular set of issues to

consider. In most cases, apartments are

held in unit title ownership. This means

you own the apartment or unit and any

‘accessory units’, like garages, car parks,

private courtyards and storage areas

contained in the record of title. Don’t

assume that a car park is included unless

it is specifically included – if there is one

it may have a separate title and need to

be purchased separately. You also own

an undivided share of the ownership of

the common property (eg lifts, laundries,

lobby areas, driveways and gardens).

Becoming a unit title holder means

you automatically become a member of

the body corporate, which consists of all

the unit owners acting as a group. The

body corporate handles the management

and upkeep of the building and property,

in return for all the members paying

annual fees. These fees will probably

include budgeted costs like insurance and

management expenses, contributing to

a long-term maintenance fund (LTMF)

and any services the body corporate

arranges for its members (such as rubbish

collection and cleaning communal areas).

Body corporate costs that have not been

included in the budget are also payable

by the unit owners, usually by way of a

special levy.

We strongly recommend asking a

lawyer to help you understand the body

corporate rules which set out your

obligations and what you can or cannot

do with your apartment.

When you are looking at properties, ask

the real estate agent to give you copies of

the long-term maintenance plan (LTMP)

and the building fund, along with copies

of the body corporate meeting minutes

from the past 12 months to understand

the key issues and concerns. For example,

is there enough money to pay to upgrade

the lifts or repaint the complex? These

can cost from tens to hundreds of

thousands of dollars. Ask too about the

building’s contingency plan, as there may

be additional costs in addition to the

building levies.

Check that all the owners’ levies are up

to date and that the accounts are audited.

Read the details of the insurance policy.

Is the body corporate involved in any

proceedings against a third party, and are

there any weather-tightness issues with

the building? Check if an apartment or

townhouse comes with a parking spot, or

whether you will need to purchase this on

a separate title.

Body corporate rules are also likely to

specify how an apartment is used and

who can live in it, which may have an

impact on any future plans you have for

the apartment. Some body corporate rules

extend to visitors to the property, such as

the hours they can be on site and where

they can park.

While many apartment complexes

develop into tightly-knit communities,

living so close to others is not for

everyone. Consider the amount of sound

proofing the apartment has and find out

what sort of people live there. If you play

the drums in a thrash metal band on the

weekends, a complex filled with retirees

may not be the best choice.

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.
