30 Latest Christchurch news at 2 [Edition Wednesday datE] July 4 2018 SELWYN TIMES 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.

SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at Wednesday [Edition July 4 datE] 2018 31 3 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.
