steal the Showquest

CHAMPS: Darfield High School took out Christchurch Showquest at Horncastle Arena last week. It was the third regional event

in New Zealand’s new music, dance and drama showcase for schools. Darfield High students choose to theme their performance

on gun violence in schools in the United States. This theme was chosen as they felt inspired by students of the same

age who had experienced it first-hand. The group spent seven weeks practising their performance before the regional contest.

For Jemma Dalley, one of the student captains for the Darfield High entry, the goal was to safely and conscientiously put across

the theme, while making their school and themselves proud. “That we’ve won is so awesome, and just puts the cherry on top

really,” said the 16-year-old. A national online final will name the top entry nationwide in September.

SELWYN’S biggest community

facility project ever could get the

green light today.

The district council will consider

signing off two major projects

worth about $37 million,

in its largest community facility

expenditure to date.

It is looking at extending the

Selwyn Aquatic Centre and approving

the design concepts for

the new Rolleston Library and

Community Centre.

Selwyn’s population is forecast

to grow from about 60,000 today

to 80,000 by 2028.

The two projects were proposed

in the Long Term Plan

2018 -2028 and previous annual

plans.

Property and commercial

manager Douglas Marshall

said the projects are key

developments in meeting the

increasing needs of the district,

as its population continues to

grow.

“This is a substantial investment

in the district which

ensures that two important

facilities meet the future needs

of all Selwyn residents,” he

said.

DRIVE BETWEEN Rolleston and Lincoln

and you’ll see what is happening: A

housing boom.

Some might say Rolleston and Lincoln

will one day be almost one, separated only

by Shands Rd. The merits of that are debatable.

But it’s a reality, which the district council is having to

address (see page 1).

Two very big projects are due for council sign off to cope with

the growing population. The Selwyn of today will be vastly different

to Selwyn in 10 years.

But the council also needs to think of the little guy. Like the

long suffering residents of West Belt in Lincoln. The road is still

in appalling condition, and at least one resident has been spotted

filling in the pot holes himself.

That’s next week’s story.

Senior policeman

calls for stop sign at Waddington

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ONE OF the district’s top police

officers has joined the call

for action over a crash prone

intersection.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills

has backed Waddington residents’

pleas to have a stop sign

installed at

the intersection

of State

Highway 73

and Waimakariri

Gorge

Rd.

NZTA

senior safety

engineer

Pete Stills

David Scarlet said on Monday

its highway maintenance team

will be providing a report on

conditions at the Waddington

intersection at the time of the

crash.

It will also look at other factors

which may have contributed

related to road, weather or signage

conditions.

Mr Scarlet said a stop sign

is normally used where there

is limited visibility and this

intersection had good visibility

in both directions.

SAFETY: Senior Sergeant Pete Stills wants a stop sign at the

State Highway 73 and Waimakariri Gorge Rd intersection.

He said a give way sign still

appears to be the most appropriate

tool to use.

In July, NZTA told Selwyn

Times it would not install a stop

sign at the intersection.

But Senior Sergeant Stills said

forcing motorists to stop should

increase their ability to have a

proper look in both directions.

“If we don’t try something different

we will keep getting what

we get now,” he said.

INTERNATIONAL

It comes after four people were

lucky not to be seriously injured

when a car was hit in the rear by

a truck on State Highway 73.

The incident happened on

Friday, July 27, at 1pm.

Senior Sergeant Stills said

two rental cars and a truck were

involved. The first car pulled out

from the Waimakariri Gorge

Rd causing the truck to brake

heavily.

The second vehicle followed

Comedy

Night

Lincoln Event Centre

SATURDAY

6 OCTOBER

and was hit in the rear by the

truck. No injuries were sustained,

but Senior Sergeant Stills

said the four occupants in the

second vehicle were very lucky.

“Had they been hit 1m further

forward on the vehicle they

would have had potentially serious

issues,” he said.

Already two serious crashes

have been recorded at the intersection

this year, one fatal.

Three other crashes that resulted

in both serious and minor

injuries were recorded at the

intersection between 2014-2016.

Senior Sergeant Stills said a

feature in several crashes at this

intersection has been a second

vehicle following another vehicle

through the give way without

having checked that the way is

clear.

He also considers it a suitable

intersection for a 70km/h flashing

sign on State Highway 73.

The best of Selwyn recognised in

COURTNEY FORREST has

proven to be a popular man in

Selwyn.

The Rolleston youth worker

was awarded the inaugural People’s

Choice honour at the 2018

Selwyn Awards on Saturday

night.

The award was voted on by

Selwyn residents.

Nearly 2400 votes were cast

for the People’s Choice Award,

which was introduced for the

first time this year.

First runner-up for the

People’s Choice Award went to

Quickenberry Guesthouse and

second runner-up to after school

programme Busy Bumbles.

Mr Forrest was one of 10

Selwyn businesses, groups and

individuals who were recognised

for their excellence at the Selwyn

Awards Gala Dinner, held at the

Lincoln Event Centre.

Selwyn Times profiled Mr

Forrest, of Hope Presbyterian

Church earlier this year.

He talked about helping young

people living in Rolleston who

do not have strong role models

and how his parent’s separation

when he was younger has helped

him relate to other people going

through difficult times.

More than 330 people celebrated

the success of the region

at the event, which also featured

a range of entertainment, food

and beverages originating from

Selwyn.

Mayor Sam Broughton said it

was to see the community supporting

local people working for

the good of Selwyn.

“We have so many amazing

people in Selwyn giving up

their time to help others, building

thriving businesses which

support our district’s economy,

and working to improve our

environment and community

well-being,” he said.

“I am very proud of all our

winners, as well as the other

runners up and nominees – it

just shows what a wealth of

talent and creativity we have in

Selwyn.”

The Rolleston Library and

focal point of the new town

centre, to be developed in the

vicinity of Rolleston Reserve and

Tennyson St.

The facility will provide a

usable area of 2256m 2 over two

storeys, and the space will be

flexible and adaptive, allowing it

to suit a range of needs.

It will feature meeting spaces,

current and future library collections

spaces, performance,

exhibition, display areas, children’s

spaces and research and

historical spaces.

Construction on the $22.2

million project is set to start in

April next year, with handover

pencilled in for July 2020.

The district council’s recent

Long Term Plan 2018-2028

includes a proposal for an additional

eight-lane, 25m pool at

Selwyn Aquatic Centre to meet

rapidly increasing demand for

additional capacity.

It is now considering a larger

proposal, for a new 10-lane, 25m

main pool, along with reconfiguration

of the existing pool.

The new pool would have a

depth range of 1.4 to 2m, and

the 10-lane layout provides flexibility

for deep water sports and

other activities.

Firefighters

rescue cat

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A CAT has had a lucky escape

after it became wedged between a

block wall and fence.

The Rolleston Volunteer Fire

Brigade was called out to one of

their more “trickier” rescues to

free the animal.

The brigade was alerted at

about 10am on Sunday morning

by a property owner on Andesite

Drive in Rolleston who heard the

screaming of the cat.

Senior firefighter Cam Kenyon

said it was trickier to rescue than

normal, as most cats the fire

brigade are called out to are normally

up trees or power poles.

The fire brigade was required

to wedge the fence away from the

block wall with a crowbar to free

the cat.

He said the cat, named Lola,

was frightened and ran away to its

owner’s house on Andesite Drive

when it was freed.

A GLENTUNNEL resident

in parts of Malvern has been

Because the first hour of preparing

to pay the money.

But a district council spokesman

told Selwyn Times between

April 12 and July 13, Mr Thompson

has lodged 25 requests on

the chlorination.

It has not charged Mr Thompson

previously.

“We have been very cooperative

in working with Brian

with his requests,” he said.

Recent requests were for a list

of original ratepayers who were

members of the Malvern Hills

Water Scheme, a copy of all

contamination breaches of the

Hartleys Rd scheme in the past

three years and records of illegal

connections to the scheme.

Mayor Sam Broughton suggested

the Malvern Community

Board looks at using their discretionary

funds to support the

requests.

But Mr Thompson said it

didn’t “rest well” with him and

the money was supposed to be

for the community.

The district council confirmed

it permanently chlorinated the

Sheffield-Waddington water supplies

in June and the Malvern

Hills Hartleys Road supplies this

month and the next.

District council asset manager

Murray Washington said

answering these requests has a

significant cost to staff in terms

of time being taken away from

ratepayer.

He said the district council

works to be as open as possible

Young families embrace Selwyn as

Beth and Chris Sharpe are among the growing number of young

families living in the district. Emily O’Connell reports

IDEAL: (From left to right) – Andrew, Chris, Beth and Tim Sharpe

moved to Selwyn in 2014 and say it’s the “perfect” place to raise

a family.

PHOTO: NINA HENDERSON ​

FOR THE Sharpe family, it was

Chris’ work which led them to

move to the district in December

2014.

But according to his wife, Beth,

it’s also the perfect place to raise

children.

“The lifestyle here is nice

because the pace of life is a lot

slower which is really nice with a

family,” she said.

They are among a growing

number of young families

living in Selwyn. The district

council’s Long Term Plan predicts

55 per cent of the population

will be aged under 39-yearsold

in 2028.

The Sharpe family moved to

Selwyn as Chris’ job with Trustpower

had been transferred from

Dunedin to Lake Coleridge. He

works as a technical team leader

at the Coleridge hydroelectric

generation scheme.

When the family of four first

moved to the district, they settled

in Kirwee.

But less than a year later the

Sharpes moved to Darfield after

finding a suitable house.

“Darfield has a really nice

community as well [as Kirwee]

and we managed to find a house

there,” Mrs Sharpe said.

At 37 and 33-years-old, Mr and

Mrs Sharpe help make up 34 per

cent of the district’s population

who are aged between 15 and

39-years-old.

Mrs Sharpe says in the almost

four years they’ve lived in

Selwyn, she’s seen an increase

in young families living in the

area.

“There definitely are a lot more

families, I’ve noticed more families

at more things,” she said.

The district has 30 primary

and secondary schools which are

helping accommodate for the

growing number of children and

teenagers.

District council community relations

manager Denise Kidd said

it understands the population

has changed and it has worked

to provide key assets to the community.

“Like the Selwyn Aquatic Centre,

community and event centres,

libraries which also host a

range of events, sporting grounds

and dozens of playgrounds

around Selwyn featuring a range

of interactive play areas,” she

said.

Ms Kidd said it also works to

provide programmes such as

KidsFest, Boost and CultureFest

as ways to engage the

community and provide entertainment

for a wide range of local

residents.

“Through engagement

and consultation we also

work to investigate whether

current facilities meet the

needs of our ever changing and

developing communities,” she

said.

Mrs Sharpe said the

district has good facilities and

her children, Tim, 7, and Andrew,

4, attend library story

times and community gymnastics.

“If anything, I would say there

are too many options which is

funny because you’d think living

rurally that there wouldn’t be

enough choices for things to do

with kids,” she said.

Data from the 2013 census

shows an increase in young

parents moving to the district

over an 11-year period.

In 2001 there were 120

parents aged under 25-yearsold

living in Selwyn. This

increased to 237 by 2013.

Similiarly, in 2001 there were

1674 parents aged between

25-years-old and 34-years-old

In 2015 the district

council adopted its

Newcomers and Migrants

Strategy after conducting

research and working with a

mixture of key community

groups and agencies within the

district.

The strategy sets the

direction and aims to address

the needs of people new to the

district so that they can settle

well and call Selwyn their

home.

SWIM: The Selwyn Aquatic Centre is just one of

the facilities the district has on offer for young

families.

LINCOLN’S BEX Barrett has

one birthday wish this year – to

help people.

So in a bid to do just that,

she’s organised a variety night to

raise funds for the New Zealand

Breast Cancer Foundation.

In 2008, Mrs Barrett’s father,

Robert Dollery, died from breast

cancer.

“He actually had lung cancer

but it was secondary from a

strange cancer that originated

in the breast that normally

pregnant woman have,” she

said.

Mrs Barrett says she chose

the breast cancer foundation

because of the amazing work

they do.

“It’s just touched so much of

my life it just seemed like the

perfect charity to raise money

for and so I decided I would do a

fundraiser,” she said.

The event will be held on Mrs

Barrett’s birthday, September 1,

at the Lincoln Event Centre.

Friends and bandmates have

helped her organise the night,

which will feature a number of

acts including TribalDiva Belly

Dance Company, burlesque

performer and comic Ashleigh

Blair, ballroom and latin dance

phenomenon Saphire and Steel,

musicians Southfield, jazz singer

Georgia Catherine, Fan Dancers

and her own band, Hypnumb.

The master of ceremonies

for the night will be Nathan

Bonner or as he’s better known,

MulletMan. Mrs Barrett says he

will help bring the whole show

together.

“I think he’s incredibly talented

in his act, so he does a lot

of circus type acts, but he’s also

really, really funny and a really

lovely guy,” she said.

Mrs Barrett says the event will

be “a great night out in Lincoln.”

“If we can sell 200 tickets . . .

then we should be giving at least

over $4000 to the foundation

which would be lovely,” she said.

Doors will open at 6.30pm,

with the show starting at 7pm.

Light-fingered cat on the prowl

• By Emily O’Connell

MUCH LIKE Lynley Dodd’s

Slinky Malinki, cat Duncan,

from Rolleston, has been

helping himself to his

neighbours’ soft toys.

Owner Diane Guthrie says

Duncan’s habits are “a bit

embarrassing” but she’s pleased

their neighbours are good

about it.

“He likes to collect things.

He’s not a really cuddly cat, he

kind of does his own thing but

he’s very social,” she said.

Mrs Guthrie says Duncan,

aged 18-months, particularly

likes to steal dog toys from

Charlie, the golden retriever

which lives across the road.

“He takes all his toys . . . he

just brings them home and

leaves them,” she said.

Duncan also likes adventuring

to a nearby outdoor gym,

where Mrs Guthrie says he has

brought home hats, a sock and

a child’s headband.

After posting numerous pictures

of Duncan’s stolen goods

on the Rolleston Community

Page on Facebook, Mrs Guthrie

decided to create a separate

page for his mischievous acts.

A few weeks and 600 or so

likes later, Duncan’s adventures

are proving popular on Facebook.

But stealing isn’t the only

thing Duncan gets up to, Mrs

Guthrie says he also likes to

make himself at home in neighbouring

houses.

“He upset one neighbour because

in the summer he would

leave his window open and he

woke up one morning, well in

the early hours, and our cat was

sleeping at the end of his bed,”

she said.

Mrs Guthrie says Duncan

isn’t bothered if there are other

animals residing in the neighbouring

houses when he visits

and at times, he even tucks into

their food bowls.

Bridge gets

second fix

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A BRIDGE in Coalgate will

be sealed this summer after

complaints recent repairs made

the surface worst.

The Coalgate Township Committee

is unhappy about repairs

the New Zealand Transport

Agency has done on the bridge,

saying it has “made the bridge

worse,” a Malvern Community

Board report said.

NZTA repaired the bridge in

June after the deck joints had

deteriorated and were no longer

functioning correctly.

It was resealed at the same

time costing about $300,000.

District councillor Bob Mugford

said the bridge was brought

up at a recent committee meeting

while it was discussing the

general quality of the roads.

He said it appeared while the

joins on the bridge had been

repaired, they are raised causing

a series of bumps on the bridge,

“It is definitely bumpier than it

used to be,” he said.

Cr Mugford said he took the

issue to the district council, who

have since followed up with

NZTA.

The bridge was built in 1939.

Dame Patsy visits Selwyn

GOVERNOR-GENERAL Dame

Patsy Reddy and husband Sir

David Gascoigne visited the

district on Wednesday.

They were taken on a tour of

key sites about Te Waihora/Lake

Ellesmere, starting at Ngāti Moki

visit represented an excellent

the good work happening on

the ground around the lake,

and research activity at the

university.

“Their Excellencies saw Te

Waihora first hand and the work

being done to restore the mauri

of the lake,” Mr Lambie said.

“There was a presentation

by one of the Ngāi Tahu Co-

Governors, Liz Brown, who gave

an overview of Te Waihora and

the catchment in terms of the

vision for the lake and plans for

restoration of its mauri.”

This was followed by a stop at

Orariki Wetland, a two-yearold

created wetland designed

to improve water quality,

biodiversity and mahinga kai.

Further on, at Lower Lake Rd

near Fisherman’s Point, there

was discussion about farming

within the Cultural Landscape

Values Management Area, a

particularly sensitive area near

the lake.

Hart’s Creek, a well-known

restoration site contributed to

by many farmers and other

community members for more

than a decade, was the final

stopping point before Lincoln

At the Ashley Dene Research

heard a series of presentations on

A SELWYN company has won

It was to provide more than

“They were working 800km

from mainland New Zealand

and their success was highly

Springston School prepares to celebrate

OCTOBER WILL mark

Springston School’s 150th

anniversary.

On May 22, 1868, a group

of local landowners and

householders declared

themselves willing to form the

Springston Education District

and later that year the first

school room and schoolhouse

was built on Ellesmere Junction

Rd, with James Gammock

donating the land.

The school was built in two

and a half months and cost

£242. The opening ceremony

was held on the October 30,

1868, and the school started

with a roll of 25.

A playground was provided

across the road in one of

Gammock’s paddocks and this

was where the boys were able to

play while the girls had to stay in

the school grounds.

In the early days, attendance

grew and by the 1880s there were

186 children on the roll.

However, the average daily

attendance was only 89 – which

was less than half the roll. This

was due to the children often

being needed to help out at home

as well as the education fees

which many families could not

afford to pay.

CELEBRATION: Springston School almost 150 years on from when it first opened its doors.

The school continued to

grow and extra rooms were

added in 1878 and 1886 but

by 1920 the building was a

little worst for wear and the

school committee wrote to the

education board asking them

to buy a larger section because

the school was old and past

repair – little did they know they

would have to wait another 36

years.

Electricity came to

Springston in 1922 but it was

not until 1947 when the old

school was wired up. It was at

this time the school roll had

dropped back to 25 and the

school returned to being a

single-teacher school.

Finally in 1956 the

construction of new buildings

on the present site on Leeston

Rd revitalised the school and

the old school was pulled

down.

The community decided to

mark the occasion by

also building a swimming

pool.

The full cost was raised by

donations and pool was ready

for use in less than a month.

The pool has been a treasured

asset and over the years has

been retained for the good

of Springston School and

community, whereas many

other pools have not been so

lucky.

Fire rages, homes at risk

150 years

A long association with

country life continues today

with many students involved in

the agriculture club. Originally

called the calf club it was noted

the rivalry between herds of the

district for the premier award led

to fierce competition and it was

questioned how much the young

owners had in the selection, feeding

and grooming of their calves.

Today the school has a roll of

237, made up of 10 classes which

include collaborative learning

spaces, integrated technology,

well-resourced library, a community

garden and a large outdoor

learning centre. The focus of the

school is still very much connected

to the community and

local families.

To celebrate its jubilee, the

school is having a weekend full

of events on October 19 to 21.

Former pupils, teachers, board of

trustees, community members

and current school families are

welcome to attend.

SELWYN TIMES

Your rates 2018/19

What’s changed?

Selwyn ratepayers will be receiving their first rates notices for the 2018/19 year by post or email

about now – and will notice a few things have changed.

The rates were set by the Council after consultation on the Long-Term Plan, which set out the

major projects for the next 10 years, along with the expected costs. Nearly 1,800 people provided

feedback on the Plan, either through formal submissions or online feedback.

Overall, the average Selwyn rate increase per ratepayer is 6%, reflecting the investment in

landmark district projects including roading improvements, the Selwyn Aquatic Centre extension

and the new Rolleston Library and Community Centre. Actual increases for individual ratepayers

will vary based on location, property type and the services received, and may be higher or lower

than the average.

The biggest change is the introduction of standard district-wide rates for community centres

and reserves. This means everyone will now pay towards the cost of these facilities and everyone

will pay the same amount. The big advantage of this change is that it will provide the funding to

allow us to provide a network of quality facilities across Selwyn that best meet the needs of

our community.

Another change is that all ratepayers will now contribute to the cost of the water race network.

This recognises that water races don’t just provide stock water, but also contribute to Selwyn’s

environment and biodiversity, the aesthetics of our townships and the district’s rural heritage.

In addition there are increases in the General Rate (the part of the bill based on the capital value

of the property), water rates and the stormwater rate. The $60 previously collected for additional

transportation costs has been stopped and is now collected through the General Rate.

For more details on the changes to rates visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/rates2018.

You can also find out about different types of rates, easy ways to pay, the rates rebate scheme

and more, on our website at https://www.selwyn.govt.nz/services/rates. The first rates instalment

is due for payment on 15 September.

Good living, great value

Nobody loves getting their rates bill, but rates are an important way that the Council helps fund

the essentials that keep Selwyn thriving. A typical residential property in one of the districts larger

townships might pay around $3,000 a year in Selwyn rates – that’s roughly equivalent to the cost

of a cup of coffee and a sandwich a day. But rates are working for everybody 24/7, providing great

value for the services that all Selwyn residents enjoy, like …

1,000 litres of water supplied for $1.10

a day

Wastewater flushed away for $1.50

a day

Rubbish, recycling and green waste

collected and processed for $1.25 a day

Your Local Views

Chairman going out with a bang

Jens Christensen, who is the

chairman of the committee,

which organises

the annual

Rolleston

fireworks night,

writes about

how it started

and why he’s

stepping down from his role.

SOME 35 years ago the original

Rolleston fireworks night was

hatched by a group of Rolleston

identities and stalwarts of the

time.

Local residents and the district

council over the preceding year

brought their tree and hedge cuttings

to the old league ground for

the Guy Fawkes bonfire.

The rugby league ground was

in the vicinity of the district

council headquarters.

The format over the years

was for the locals to bring their

private fireworks down to the

league fields and elders and

members of the volunteer fire

brigade would let the fireworks

off on bits of 4x2 timber and

planks while enjoying the bonfire.

It sure was a true family evening.

Twenty years ago, Ken Shearer

and I got our heads together

and in conjunction with the

Rolleston Residents Association

Committee and the Rolleston

Reserve Management Committee

thought it would be a good

idea to introduce a professional

operator with some bigger fireworks.

The Yellow Pages introduced

us to Paul Collins of Fireworks

International and he has been

with us every year since.

The cost that year for fireworks

was $2000 and while Ken and I

Valuable informed

underwrote the costs, fundraising

on the night meant that the

underwrite was never needed.

Every year since we have managed

to extend the fireworks

spend and then a bigger venue

when we moved to Rolleston

Reserve and then two years ago

the move to the bigger, better

Foster Park.

Bigger for the crowd to spread

out and a bigger safety area

for the operator to fire bigger

brighter mortar shells.

WITH A BANG:

Rolleston’s

annual fireworks

display in 2014.

This photo from

the event was

captured by

a member of

the Rolleston

Community Page

on Facebook.

FRANCOISE

HURT

The fireworks spend is now

$30,000 and with 2.5km of

security fencing, 36 security

guards, 30 portable toilets, sound

systems and the like.

The night costs in the vicinity

of $65,000 to run.

Our income is $15,000 from

Pub Charity Ltd, $5000 from the

district council and the bulk of

the balance through gate donations.

The gate donations are all important

to balance the books as

the organising committee consists

of Trisha Pullin, myself and

a representative of each of the

community groups running the

stalls for their own fundraising.

We do not have any other organisation

to fall back on for the

shortfall although the organisation

does hold a reasonable cash

reserve as a buffer.

Of significance is that this

iconic district event allows the

community groups on the night

to raise for their groups an

amount in excess of $30,000.

As I am moving out of the district

it is time to seek a replacement

chair and conductor of this

big orchestra.

Assistant Trisha is keen to

hand over her important role

also.

•If you are interested

phone Trisha on 347 8973

so training can begin before

the event, which is due to be

held on November 3.

debate on euthanasia

Selwyn MP Amy Adam

writes about the public

information she held in

Selwyn last week on the

End of Life Choice Bill.

On Thursday I hosted a public

information meeting here in

Selwyn on the End of Life Choice

Bill which is currently going

through the select committee

process in Parliament.

The purpose of the meeting

was to give local people the

opportunity to hear from two

Members of Parliament with

contrasting views on this topic

The two speakers were David

Seymour, who has championed

this Bill, and Maggie Barry, who

is National’s spokeswoman for

issues affecting senior citizens.

Both speakers spoke thoughtfully

on this topic and presented

their respective views about assisted

dying to the audience.

For those who were unable

to attend the meeting and are

interested to learn more about

this topic, the aim of the Bill is

to give people with a terminal

illness or those suffering from

a “grievous and irremediable”

medical condition the option of

requesting assisted dying.

One of the most important

issues around this Bill for me

personally is making sure that

the appropriate safeguards are in

place and the law is not capable

of being misused.

The provisions of the Bill

specify that two medical practitioners

must approve the request

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

for assisted dying.

The Bill states that the medical

practitioners must also do their

best to ensure that the person is

expressing their own wish, not

under pressure from any other

person.

The Bill states that if the two

medical practitioners do not

agree whether the person is

eligible for assisted dying or

competent to make such a decision,

the case will be referred to a

specialist for their opinion.

I have also received feedback

from many people here in

Selwyn who have strong views

both for and against this Bill.

In a recent survey that I sent

to a random selection of local

residents, the majority of respondents

stated that they were

in favour of giving the terminally

ill the right to end their lives.

•If you would like to get

in touch with me to share

your views on this Bill, email

belong to a family called

Pompilidae or spider wasps, of

which there are 11 species in

New Zealand.

On Christmas Eve last year,

I observed one of these wasps,

Priocnemis species, repeatedly

searching on the verge of our

lawn.

These large 15-25mm long

HUNTERS: The Priocnemis species wasps have long legs and

iridescent black coloured wings.

shiny black hunting wasps have

long legs and iridescent black

coloured wings.

Pompilids are solitary wasps

that paralyse large spiders with

venom, drag them backwards

across the ground into a nest

hole, and lay a single egg on

them.

When the larva hatches, they

eat the paralysed spider while it

is still alive, saving its vital organs

to last, just before the wasp

larva pupates.

Hosts are usually larger

species including native

trap-door or tunnelweb

spiders.

$10k for Camp Twitch

CHRISTCHURCH mother

Robyn Twemlow is out to

make a difference in the lives of

those diagnosed with Tourette

Syndrome – and last week

received $10,000 from the Mazda

Foundation to aid her cause.

Tourette’s is a condition characterised

by tics, repetitive and

involuntary movements.

Five years ago, Ms Twemlow’s

then-nine-year-old daughter

Analise was diagnosed with the

syndrome.

But the pair found there was

little support for them in the

community.

Ms Twemlow founded the

Tourette’s Association of New

Zealand as a way for her family

to connect with other affected

Kiwis.

As well as running a support

system for families and an

information hub for those who

have been recently diagnosed,

the Tourette’s Association also

began running a yearly camp

called Camp Twitch.

It brings together young

people with Tourette’s and their

families for a weekend of fun

where their tics are welcomed.

At Blackwells City Mazda

last week Ms Twemlow was

presented with $10,000 from the

Mazda Foundation to help run

KIND DONATION:

Blackwells City Mazda dealer

principal Seth Ovens with

Robyn and Analise Twemlow. ​

Camp Twitch, enabling more

than 50 young people and their

families to attend the camp.

Ms Twemlow said the funding

would reduce the financial stress

of families living with Tourette’s

and allows young people from

any financial background to attend

the camp.

She said Camp Twitch is an

environment where children

can “tic loud and proud.”

“It’s amazing to see them

build their self-esteem and take

ownership over their disorder.

It also provides opportunity for

parents to share their experiences

of raising a child with

Tourette Syndrome – so it’s an

empowering experience for all

involved.”

Lincoln’s semi-final

hopes all but gone

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN Combined’s top-four

UC Championship aspirations

are hanging by a thread.

A 38-0 drubbing at the hands

of Nelson College on Saturday

has all but ended their top four

chances.

Lincoln Combined will need

to beat competition leaders,

Christchurch Boys’ High in

their final round-robin game

this Saturday and hope results

go their way.

Coach Mike Wilson said his

team struggled to match up

against the size of the Nelson

College forwards and their

strong ball-runners on a muddy

Nelson College field.

“We couldn’t match their

physicality,” he said.

“They have some really strong

ball-runners and while we tried

to contain them, we could only

do so much.”

Wilson said his team was hard

on defence for much of the first

half.

“It was 12-0 at half-time

and we’d had no ball except for

five minutes at the end of the

half we’re we got them down to

14 men for repeated infringements

but couldn’t get over the

line.”

Wilson said conceding a soft

try from the second-half kickoff

didn’t help matters, but the

boggy ground conditions took a

toll later in the game.

“We had (halfback Robert

Sporke) almost sick at half-time

and he is a supremely fit guy,”

Wilson said.

“Nelson are a very good team,

possibly the best we’ve played

and in those conditions, they’re

hard to stop.”

Lincoln Combined did welcome

back captain Wil Gualter

but it wasn’t enough.

Wilson said there was no

shortage of desire from his

players to try to match it against

CBHS, who will be smarting

• By Jacob Page

BROADFIELD A have surged

to the top of the Selwyn premier

netball competition after beating

rivals Greenpark A 56-48 at

the Lincoln Event Centre on

Saturday.

The two teams have traded victories

this season, but with points

going towards the semi-finals in

the third round, Greenpark A

secured a crucial win.

Defending champions Lincoln

A got their top four hopes on

track with a 64-47 win over

Southbridge A while Greenpark

B sit ahead of their A team on the

ladder after cooling Rolleston A’s

good start 52-39.

Broadfield A coach Yvonne

Crichton-Hill said every game

was crucial in the final round but

she was thrilled with the complete

team effort to get the win.

“We need to be winning every

game from here on in,” she said.

“There’s a really good feel

around the team, really positive,”

she said.

Experience at both ends of the

court, particularly with shooter

Maia Hill could prove Broadfield’s

A best asset.

The win saw Broadfield A go

a point clear of both Lincoln A

and Greenpark B at the top of

the competition but with just five

points separating all six teams,

everyone still had a chance to

make the final four,

Greenpark A and Lincoln A

will do battle in the pick of the

games this Saturday.

Another loss for Greenpark

A could make their road to the

semi-finals challenging.

Greenpark B will play Broadfield

A and Rolleston A will meet

Southbridge A.

Results:

Greenpark B 52, Rolleston

A 39; Lincoln A 64,

Southbridge A 47; Broadfield

A 56, Greenpark A 48.

Points:

Broadfield A 9, Lincoln A 8,

A 4.

DARFIELD survived a late

scare to advance to their

second straight Ellesmere

rugby Coleman Shield

final after a 23-22 win over

Prebbleton on Saturday.

Darfield will meet

Waihora, after the

competition favourites

easily accounted for

Springston 32-19 in Tai

Tapu, scoring five tries in

the process.

After doing the business

at Prebbleton Oval,

Darfield will host the final

which should give them the

advantage of a vocal home

crowd.

A missed Prebbleton

penalty closing in on

full-time was all the good

SPORTS

Darfield survive and

advance to shield final

fortune Darfield needed to

hold on.

Prebbleton were unable

to make the most of a 22-9

advantage.

After a gritty comeback

and two Scott Mitchell

drop goals saw Darfield

earn and then cling to their

one-point lead for much of

the second half.

Prebbleton had many

attacking raids near the

Darfield try line but each

time they came up short.

Waihora’s charge to win

both the Combined Country

and Ellesmere senior

rugby titles never looked in

danger against Springston

in the other semi-final.

Springston, who were

new to top flight rugby

this season and performed

admirably, couldn’t recover

from an early 12-0 deficit.

Tries to hard-working

forward Joe Robins and

Michael Burnett had

Waihora up 12-0.

Springston did get on the

board through flanker Sam

Lawn but still faced a 17-5

half-time deficit.

Waihora struck first with

a converted try through

Matt Saunders which Harrison

Kirk converted.

Waihora’s fifth try to

Will Hurst was the icing on

the cake.

Waihora took the Murray

Cooper Shield off Darfield

a fortnight ago the last time

they met, while Darfield

will be looking to cap a

stellar season by causing an

upset.

dISCOVER

Fresh flowers for

every occasion

After flying high as a member of Air New Zealand’s cabin crew

for many years, three years ago West Melton resident Sandy

Sharp landed on a different pathway, re-training in floristry and

starting her own home-based business, Miss Lily Flowers.

Flowers are Sandy’s passion, and she

would like to see more New Zealanders

following the European style of always

having fresh flowers in the home. She plays

her part in making them readily available

with her mobile flower trailer, named

Connie, which she sets up in Cathedral

Square Christchurch every Friday and at

the West Melton Market on

Saturday mornings.

At her Miss Lily

Flowers studio in

West

Melton

Sandy creates

exquisite floral

arrangements

for every

occasion

in life –

from weddings to funerals, birthdays to

anniversaries.

“I prefer a more natural look for bouquets

and arrangements and I’m finding there

is quite a following for that. I love the

creativity of the process and also the contact

with people that floristry gives me.”

She also provides floral arrangements

for the real estate sector when homes for

sale are staged for presentation to potential

purchasers.

Orders for floral arrangements

can be placed through the Miss Lily

Flowers Facebook page by email to

misslilyflowers@xtra.co.nz, or by calling

021 342 924. Sandy will be happy to

discuss your requirements and create a

memorable arrangement, whatever the

occasion calls for.

Meet the alpacas

at Sherlin Alpaca stud farm

Established in 1999 by Lindsay and

Sheryl Riddle, the delightful Sherlin Alpaca

stud farm is sited on 22 hectares of land

between West Melton and Templeton.

Starting with five alpacas, the couple

gradually increased their herd and they

now have around 300 head, from which

they breed to sell stock and also shear the

fibre for making alpaca products.

They carry the two alpaca breeds – the

Huacaya, which has a coat similar to a

sheep fleece, and the Suri, which has a

fleece like dreadlocks. Both breeds come in

all the alpaca colours – black, brown, fawn,

grey and white.

Lindsay says alpacas are easy to care for,

have personality, and make ideal pets for

a lifestyle block. They eat grass when it’s

plentiful and meadow hay, lucerne baleage

or lucerne chaff in the winter. The young

alpacas are halter trained at Sherlin, so

they can be taken for walks. For anyone

interested in acquiring two or more

animals, Lindsay and Sheryl will provide

all the necessary advice on their care and

requirements.

“We like to get to know the people who

are looking to buy alpacas and we explain

how and why we got into breeding them

and what they can expect,” Lindsay says.

Sherlin Alpaca offers farm tours, during

which visitors can see the alpacas and hand

feed them. They also have a shop with a wide

selection of alpaca-orientated products on

display. These include items hand-knitted

by Sheryl such as clothes for babies and

children up to five years of age. They design

and make their own thermal socks, which

are very popular, and the Comfy Sock, a

bed sock suitable for diabetics, or anyone

who has cold feet in bed. They also have

garments from Peru, the home country of

the alpaca.

Lindsay and Sheryl take their mobile

unit and alpacas to A&P Shows around

Canterbury, while the 2018 National

Alpaca Show being held in Christchurch at

the A&P Showgrounds from October 5-7

is an opportunity for the public to see the

country’s top alpacas compete for Best in

Show. An alpaca shown by Sherlin won the

honour at the first National Show in 2004.

To book a farm tour, or for further

enquiries, phone 349 7524, see their

website www.sherlin-alpaca.co.nz or visit

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

From rural town to

expanding suburbia

Along with Rolleston, Lincoln is

considered to be one of the fastest

growing towns in Selwyn.

Over the last 20 years, Lincoln has

tripled its population and the trend to

expand looks set to continue according

to the 2017 Lincoln University Planning

Review.

While the village centre of Lincoln

still holds its country charm, new

commercial developments and services

are in place to support the growing

demands of the ever-increasing

population.

New residential developments

continue to grow at a fast rate and

expand into the countryside giving

prospective homeowners more

significant opportunity to be part of a

‘rural’ community.

Green spaces, walkways, playgrounds,

and tennis courts are just some of the

positives these new developments bring

to help promote healthy lifestyles and

communities suitable for both young

and old alike.

Subdivisions such as Flemington,

Rosemerryn, Barton Fields and Te

Whāriki offer a wide range of section

sizes and homeownership opportunities

to help satisfy the demand.

Progressive Realty director Joe

Mullins says sections in Flemington

continue to be sought after and sales

are strong. Flemington offers sections

ranging from 400m 2 to 750m 2 and still

has 300 sections to come to the market.

Bayleys sales representative for Fulton

Hogan’s Rosemerryn subdivision,

Nathan Collett, says that they too have

seen a significant increase in enquiries

over the past months. Rosemerryn

currently has three stages open for sales

with section sizes ranging from 429m 2

to 2,282m 2 and due to high demand is

set to release its next stage in spring.

Sections through these companies

can be purchased privately or through

a choice of housing companies offering

turnkey or design and build options.

Both agree that the future growth for

Lincoln looks promising. Mr Collett

says their buyers love the new amenities

that Lincoln now has to offer and

believes that as land prices increase in

other areas such as Halswell, Prebbleton

and even Rolleston, Lincoln still

provides excellent value.

With the partnership of Lincoln

University and AgResearch’s $206

million Joint Facility for learning and

research soon to be based in Lincoln

and the New Zealand Army centralising

its operation in Burnham, Mr Mullins

says both will bring more families to

the wider area including Lincoln.

Gardening

• By Henri Ham

ARE YOU keen to get going on

your spring planting but know its

slightly too early to do so? How

about sorting out some hanging

baskets that will erupt in flowers

before you’ve even planted your

first tomatoes.

Hanging baskets are a great

way to liven up any area, whether

it’s a large or small space. Suspend

them in entrance ways, under

verandas, decks and patios.

And what’s really great about

baskets is they are super easy to

assemble. Grab a basket, many

come with a fitted coconut liner

but if not get some sphagnum

moss to line it with.

Baskets come in wide wire

frames, more compact versions

of wicker style or solid conical

shapes. Whatever you choose I

recommend getting a basket/s at

least approx 30cm in diameter.

Solid baskets have the benefit

of not drying out as quickly. But

they don’t allow for you to cascade

plants around the sides and

base of the basket. Wire ones have

a real cottage garden feel.

Coconut liners are solid and ideal

for wire baskets with bigger gaps.

Using sphagnum moss wouldn’t

work on a wire basket as the moss

would fall through the gaps.

Some baskets come with a self-

your baskets plenty of colour

variety.

watering reservoir which might

save you watering for a few days

in summer. I like to place an old

saucer at the bottom of the basket

which acts as a water catcher

and helps the basket to retain its

moisture.

When assembling your basket,

first soak the liner in a bucket of

water for five minutes to really

help its hydration. Line your

basket with the coconut or moss

liner. Then fill it almost to the top

with lightweight potting soil mix

and compost.

An easy trick here is to balance

your round basket on an old

bucket so it stays flat while you

are assembling it.

If you want to get fancy try

DID YOU grow up in a house

where parsley was the go-to

garnish for classing up platters?

Do you remember loading it

into white cheese sauce or sprinkling

it on your eggs? Parsley was,

and remains, a favourite herb in

many Kiwi kitchens.

And it’s not surprising when

you think about how hugely versatile

a herb it is. Almost any boiled

vegetable can be topped with

parsley (and butter in our house).

Appetisers, whether they’re fish,

hummus or cheese-based, can all

mixing in some water gel crystals.

They retain water in the summer

months and help if you miss a day

or two of watering.

And now for your plants.

Choose a vibrant hanging basket

mix which features a range of

suitable, seasonal flowers. Some

favourites include lobelia, pansy,

English daisy, dwarf antirrhinum,

viola and primula. Although this

does change with the seasons.

Try adding plants in the middle

that pack a bit of height. Dwarf

antirrhinum (also known as

dwarf snapdragons) are perfect

for this. Or looking for something

a bit more practical and close to

kitchen? Add some parsley or

basil in the middle and keep your

cascading flowers on the edges.

Wondering how many to add

to one basket? If it’s 30cm across

three to five plants is suitable.

Slightly wider and you could

easily fit seven. I like a really full

basket right from the start so I

really pack them in.

Once established hanging

baskets require little maintenance

other than regular watering –

especially during the hot summer

months. But right now they won’t

need a lot of water.

So, stop waiting for spring to

arrive to get back out into your

gardens. Spring to it now and

plant some baskets.

Easy to grow parsley has many uses in the kitchen

• By Henri Ham

benefit from a sprinkling of parsley.

Find yourself short on basil

for your pesto? Just use parsley

instead. The list of uses for parsley

in the kitchen are endless.

I like to have both flat leaf

parsley (sometimes called Italian

parsley) and curly parsley on

hand in my vege garden. Generally

the flat leaf (left) is the stronger

variant. Although this can change

depending on how old your plant

is and how much sun it gets.

People often find it super easy

to grow and once established

parsley requires little maintenance.

Parsley likes rich fertile soil

topped with compost or manure

if available. Plant it in a sunny

spot or in pots close to the kitchen.

Once established, it doesn’t

need a heap of watering.

If any flowers appear and it

starts looking like it’s going to

seed, I quickly cut these out and it

will continue to reward.

Because it grows so easily I

sometimes find myself with an

abundance of parsley.

After I’ve given some away and

frozen some more I like to use

it in some parsley-concentrated

recipes – particularly salsa verde

Hanging baskets – spring into them now

EASY: Once established hanging baskets require little

maintenance other than watering.

Fire rages, homes at risk

and tabbouleh.

Salsa verde is a cold uncooked

Italian herb-based sauce.

It is ideal for ladling on steak,

fish or fresh sourdough bread.

Salsa verde combines handfuls of

chopped parsley, garlic, oil, vinegar

and seasoning. It keeps well

in the fridge for a few months so

perfect for the summer barbecue

season.

You’ll find many variations of

both these recipes by searching

Property Brokers reveals

punchy new branding

Property Brokers is excited to reveal

its fresh and punchy new branding,

cementing their position as New Zealand’s

nationally provincial real estate agency.

In a little over 30 years, Property Brokers

have built their family business into a

company that stretches from the Waikato

to the South Island. The Property Brokers

family is 600 strong, with 43 branches

across the country and will continue to

expand in the provinces in years to come.

Staying true to the previous flag logo,

the new brand is a modern twist on the

flag and still reflects the culture of the

company. “We have changed our look,

not who we are” says Tim Mordaunt,

Managing Director of Property Brokers.

Prior to the new brand, Property

Brokers, established in 1986, has only ever

had two logos. “After 20 years it was time

for the company to modernise our brand

to ensure it reflects who we are today, to

reflect how much the company has grown

over the last 20 years, and to ensure the

new logo works well in digital formats,

social media platforms, and evolves

and adapts with new technology and

advertising trends moving forward” says

Mordaunt.

“Changing our brand has given us the

opportunity to audit our whole company.

Our values, our True Team promise, our

internal and external relationships have

all been a focus for us as we look to the

future. Property Brokers has conducted

an extensive survey of our clients, our

suppliers and our staff and the feedback

has been extremely encouraging” says

Tim. “We are proud to be a contributor to

the services of our own regions and we are

truly humbled by the support we receive

from our communities”.

Due to the size of the company and

multiple locations across the country,

the new brand rollout will begin from

the 1st August 2018 and each Property

Brokers branch will be progressively rebranded

over the next 6 months. All the

Property Brokers family are positive and

enthusiastic about the new brand which

was revealed to them at their annual

conferences in June. “It has been a highly

motivating and constructive process” says

Tim “and we look forward to sharing our

brand and more importantly, our brand

values, with our local communities”.

Tim Mordaunt, Managing Director of Property

Brokers, holds the new PB brand flag.
