SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at Wednesday August 15 2018 7 News Lincoln’s new art be in to WIN $50 GIFT CARD store Details in Californian Nectarines or Black Plums Loose Product of USA $ 6 99 kg ART: A Lincoln resident admires the new sculpture, Piwakawaka-Fantail over the Liffey, outside the library. ​ A NEW artwork has been installed in Lincoln’s town centre. The Lincoln Community Committee has installed the artwork in Meyenburg Square to complement the Lincoln Town Centre Plan. The square is encompassed by the Lincoln Library and Service Centre, the Laboratory and home to the weekly Lincoln Farmers and Craft Market. Kathryn Claridge and Ralph Scott of the Lincoln Community Committee visited Peter Joyce and Annabelle Menzies-Joyce at their Tai Tapu Sculpture Garden home to get ideas. This led to the committee commissioning sculptor Bing Dawe to design the Piwakawaka-Fantail over the Liffey, specifically for Lincoln. Committee secretary Pauline Hayes said the sculpture cost $20,000 and $7500 was granted from the Springs and Ellesmere Discretionary Funds Committee. She said the committee contributed $10,000 to the project while $2500 was donated by the defunct Lincoln Business Association. Mr In Brief SHEFFIELD HOUSE FIRE A house near Sheffield has been lucky not to burn down after a fire. The fire started in the chimney before it caught part of the roof. Sheffield volunteer fire brigade station officer Keith Taege said the house was saved because a heater tank next to the fire place melted, helping stop the fire from spreading. He said if the heater tank had been on the other end of the house, it would have been lost. The incident happened at 6.25am on Saturday at Waianiwaniwa Rd. Sheffield, Springfield and Darfield brigades attended. A couple, three children and dog were in the house when the fire started. The family had been living in the house for four days after moving from Dunedin. APPLICATIONS OPEN Applications to the district council’s Creative Communities Scheme are open. Funding is available for communitybased creative projects that promote arts or culture. Visit artsfunding for more information. Dawe said the sculpture continues a long series of works which come under the collective title, A Landscape with Too Many Holes. “In these works I have shown a balance between the birds rendered in the positive and the voids or holes representing the negative. As we celebrate and appreciate what we have we must remind ourselves and be ever vigilant of what we have lost,” he said. Mr Dawe has also borrowed from another series of works titled Markers on the Landscape and these share the elongated triangular shape of the main body of the work. “In this work I have taken five viewpoints of the fantail as it intercepts and feeds on a mayfly hatch over the local Liffey Stream at Lincoln. The fantail’s amazing displays of aeronautical prowess are familiar and fascinating to most New Zealanders.” The sculpture’s base was organised by committee member Johnny Brown and was built by HEB Construction. YOUNG FARMERS CHAIR A Dunsandel Young Farmers member has been selected as the new chairwoman of the New Zealand Young Farmers Board. Ash-Leigh Campbell was elected chairwoman on Wednesday, replacing Waikato’s Jason Te Brake. Ms Campbell is the first woman to be elected as chair of the board in the last 12 years and one of four women on the board. The 27-year-old is a technical farm manager with Ngāi Tahu and helps oversee the management of eight dairy farms. COUNCIL GOES PAPERLESS The Selwyn Youth Council has decided to go paperless at its meetings. Chairwoman Paige Sullivan said it was decided at its last meeting as a result of the large amounts of paper each member had including meeting agendas and the youth council’s budget. “We had so much paper it was ridiculous,” she said. Miss Sullivan said it is better for the environment and aligns with the youth council’s values. It will come into effect from next month.
