Sports groups surprised by new charging plan

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE POSSIBILITY of a

district -wide charge for all sports

clubs using recreational reserves

has come as news to Selwyn’s

major sporting associations.

Most organisations have little

knowledge the district council is

considering bringing in a consistent

charge.

The Selwyn Times revealed last

week the charge would be to help

address ongoing issues for sports

clubs struggling to pay their leases.

The district council previously

told Selwyn Times the current

situation is very “complicated”

where no fees are charged for

some sports clubs while for

others a fee is levied for the

same level of service.

Ellesmere Cricket Sub

Association president Richard

Clark said he hadn’t heard a lot

about the district-wide charge

but will be attending a Lincoln

Domain board meeting and

hopes to get more information.

He said from a Lincoln Cricket

Club perspective it pays an annual

fee for the use of the grounds

at the Lincoln Domain which is

“pretty minimal.”

“The debate becomes how

much is that going to be in terms

of a fee number for everybody,”

he said.

Ellesmere Rugby Sub Union

chairman Chris Thornley said

it is unaware of any of its sports

clubs being charged a rental for

the grounds it uses.

“We know nothing about it

and we find it concerning that

they are looking to put a levy on

every club because there is not a

lot of money in rugby clubs now

let alone getting charged.”

MISSION accomplished.

Waihora Rugby Club president

Chris Thornley has called time on

his tenure after 27 years.

His efforts were recognised at

a club function at Tai Tapu on

Friday night.

The 51-year-old farrier and

horse trainer said with new

clubrooms and the senior team

winning the Country Combined

and Ellesmere double, the time

was right to step down.

“It’s been an amazing time and

I’ve met so many people through

this role and rugby in general,

that it’s really been a great ride,”

he said.

from the editor’s desk

SOME SPORTS clubs will benefit and

others will see their leases increase under

a potential new district-wide council

charging regime.

We revealed last week plans the district

council is considering. This week, some

key sports organisations (see page 1) were canvassed to get their

views.

They were fairly much in the dark over the plans, but expressed

concerns about paying more than they are now.

But the new regime is about fairness – hard to argue against

that.

I hear Chris Thornley got a good send-off on Friday night.

Chris has stepped down after 27 years as president of Waihora

rugby (see page 1).

He won’t be lost to rugby administration though. Chris is still

the Ellesmere sub union chairman and vice-president.

Road safety signs

failed to comply with rules

• By Emily O’Connell

A COMMUNITY patrol

electronic billboard road safety

initiative had to be altered

because it used the word police

in its signage.

Last month Selwyn Times

featured on its front page the initiative

which targets speed, cell

phone use and other road safety

messages on signs that were

rotated around the district.

Police were involved in the

project, advising the best locations

to put the electronic signs.

But Selwyn Community Patrol

secretary Murray Allison said

the district council “objected”

to it displaying “CPNZ [Community

Patrols of New Zealand]

POLICE INITIATIVE” as it

could be seen as advertising.

District council road safety

co-ordinator Peter Daly said the

screen was advertising and it

was “deemed to be distracting”

when it flashed between that and

the main message.

“The flashing of CPNZ would

also leave people wondering who

they are, taking the focus away

from the road,” Mr Daly said.

CPNZ district representative

for Canterbury Ann Smith said

the district council asked for the

screen to be removed. She said

there had been a communication

breakdown between the district

council and CPNZ and it was

unaware of some of the rules.

Mr Allison said it was also

asked to move a sign which it

had unknowingly placed next to

a school crossing, stick with the

original messages it was sent and

just use one screen.

“The whole point was to make

drivers look at it,” he said.

INTERNATIONAL

The six original messages,

which were provided by police,

were “Less speed, less harm”,

“Drink driving, it’s not worth it”,

“Focus on the road”, “Seatbelts

save lives”, “Wear a helmet” and

“Drive distraction free”.

Senior Sergeant Kelly Larsen

said she was not sure if the sign

was advertising, but the district

council feedback was “absolutely

justified” and made for a better

trial.

Mr Daly said it supports

the trial “as long as it is used

in a manner established by

He said there are New Zealand

Transport Agency guidelines

it works to with any roadside

advertising safety messages.

Mr Allison said it made the

changes asked but he felt using

the supplied messages “defeated

the point of it.” He said there

will be a follow-up meeting

where “no doubt all of these

concerns will be aired.”

TO GO!

In Brief

LARGE SCRUB FIRE

Four crews from around Selwyn

contained a large scrub fire at

Karanga Rd subdivision on

Saturday night. Dunsandel chief

fire officer Ian Chatterton said

they were called at 7pm and it took

about three and a half hours to

extinguish. He said a crew stayed

overnight in case it reignited.

GOLF CLUB FUEL STOLEN

Police are investigating after

about 60-litres of fuel was stolen

from the Ellesmere Golf Club in

two incidents on Thursday and

Saturday nights. Constable Herb

Inwood said the golf club’s tank

was unlocked by thieves and

nearby containers were used to

carry the fuel. “Because of the price

of fuel, it’s sort of going to become

like cigarettes, they’re going to be a

saleable commodity,” he said.

WOOL SHED FIRE

Firefighters were called to contain

a fire in an old wool shed on

Hoskyns Rd in Rolleston early

Monday morning. Crews from

Rolleston, Lincoln and Burnham

attended the blaze which destroyed

the shed. Rolleston station officer

Phil Glen said they were called

just after midnight and it took

about three and a half hours to

extinguish.

Rugby stalwart to step down as Waihora club president

•From page 1

Mr Thornley, who was named

volunteer of the year at the

Awards in 2014, said it was time

for some fresh ideas.

“The club has grown so much

over the years and with the

new facilities and the playing

numbers strong, the time was

right.”

quite happy to pay for it.

If you going to pay something

and it is not as good or the same

you might question why you

would,” Mr Bowden said.

His views were backed by Selwyn

Netball Centre vice president

Lyn Miles who said the problem

is sports clubs are struggling with

ongoing costs and it coming back

to the players.

She said the only way the association

receives a lot of its money

is through its players.

Mrs Miles said she hadn’t

heard of the district wide charge

but she said Selwyn Netball pays

a ground fee annually to the

district council.

“They have got to make it

affordable,” she said.

Mr Thornley said he first came

to the club as a player at just fiveyears-old.

He said he was thrilled to see

the club producing players like

Mark Maitland and Harry Kirk

who were pushing to be part of

the Canterbury set-up.

“When you see players like that

starting to achieve their goals it’s

a great feeling.”

When Mr Thornley took on the

role in 1991, he said the job “was

full of long nights on the phone.”

“Now with social media, 95 per

cent of the work can be done over

email,” he said.

Mr Thornley said he was

always left enthused by a new

wave of players and families

each season and he credited this

and the support of his family for

keeping him in the role for so

long.

He said he would continue

to be actively involved in the

club and would mentor the new

committee during the transition.

Darfield Tennis Club

supports a uniform charge

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A DARFIELD sports club is

supporting a potential districtwide

charge for clubs using

recreational reserves.

High costs to cover the club’s

rental, rates and outgoings is

continuing to put pressure on

the operation of the Darfield

Tennis Club.

President Rob Potts said it

would be “great” if the charge

could be brought in.

“We are forever fundraising

just to stay afloat. Although we

are not at a point of walking

away, we are struggling and if

membership should drop any

further, then it is a possibility,”

he said.

The club is expected to pay

about $3340 per year.

These costs are made up of

about $1250 for insurance, $340

for compliance costs, $750 for

ground fees, about $800 for

rates, $200 for water usage

The club receives $4000 per

year from memberships and

about one third of the money

goes to Malvern Canterbury

and NZ Tennis.

TOUGH GOING: The Darfield Tennis Club is supportive of

a potential district-wide charge for clubs using recreational

reserves in Selwyn. ​

It charges $135 per year for

memberships.

Mr Potts said the club provides

a “great community asset”

and the proposed costs are not

viable.

It believes a reasonable cost to

pay is between $0-$500 per year.

The other issue it is facing is

its membership has decreased

from more than 80 to 40 as a

result in an increase in overhead

expenses.

The issue began for the club

in 2005 when it agreed to move

NOW

from Almond Park to the Darfield

Domain.

At the time, the club discussed

a range of issues with the

district council including the

financial and siting charges it

would incur if it moved to the

domain.

It was decided the starting

charges would be based on a

peppercorn rent between $1-$5

alongside a $85 rent.

The district council confirmed

the Darfield Domain

would be classified as recreational

reserve land and it was

decided not to proceed with

a lease agreement as it would

need to be changed once the

land was re classified.

The club agreed it would shift

to the domain as it could build

a larger facility and by 2009

the clubrooms were built at the

Darfield Domain.

At that time the district council

informed the club its rent

would be increased from $5 to

$250 to “bring it into line with

other council leases.”

Following the February 22,

2011, earthquake insurance

cover increased due to new

insurance premiums and the

domain fee increased to $500

per annum.

In 2015 the club received

confirmation from the district

council the Darfield Domain

would be deemed as recreational

reserve.

As a result last year, the club

received an email from the

district council saying it was

expected to sign a lease and pay

about $800 for rates, $200 for a

water charge and an annual fee

of $500.

Councillors pay for sister cities trip

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MAYOR SAM Broughton is

flying the Selwyn flag in China

and Japan.

But the cost for Mr Broughton

and his fellow elected representatives

to travel overseas has

come straight from their own

pockets.

The 20-day

trip is part of

the district

council’s

sister cities

programme

which aims

to promote

Sam

Broughton

co-operation,

cultural understanding

and economic development.

The trip began in Shandan

County, China, on Thursday

and Mr Broughton will travel

to Japan on Sunday to visit

Akitakita and Yubetsu.

Mr Broughton said his trip

will cost an estimated $7000 to

$8000.

Some of the costs in the itinerary

is covered by the hosts along

with some of the accommodation

being home-stay.

“Our sister city committee has

looked after these relationships

OPPORTUNITIES: Mayor Sam Broughton, district councillors and a community board

member have used their own money to attend a sister cities trip in China and Japan. Above

left – Shandan County, China, and Yubetsu, Japan.

and meeting face to face is an

important part of that relationship,”

Mr Broughton said.

While the opportunity

becomes available every three

years to travel to both countries,

this is Mr Broughton’s first trip

in spite of being on the district

council for eight years.

He said for future trips it may

be appropriate for the district

council to contribute to airfares.

The comparison, the

Christchurch City Council

makes a decision on the funding

of the trips.

Civic and international relations

manager Matt Nichols

said the mayor’s role as the city’s

representative secures access at a

senior level for business, education

and infrastructure.

As a result, companies such

as Christchurch International

Airport will often support the

mayor’s costs.

Mr Broughton will be accompanied

by Deputy Mayor Malcolm

Lyall and district councillor

Bob Mugford in China.

Malvern Community

Board member Karen Meares

will travel to Japan with Mr

Broughton along with Darfield

High School students and

teachers in Akitakita.

Mr Broughton said the itinerary

at each place is controlled by

the hosts.

There will be formal welcomes,

speeches, tours showcasing

landscapes and food as well

as a home-stay element giving

the opportunity to experience

how a family functions and how

homes run.

Mr Broughton will also visit

the Hiroshima Peace Memorial

Park and potentially Hokkaido

depending on its recovery following

the 6.7 magnitude

earthquake.

He is planning to discuss

further education links and how

the district council can grow

its business relationships with

China and Japan.

Petition can be factored in – Bland

• By Anan Zaki

DISTRICT councillor Jeff Bland

says it would be foolish to ignore

a petition against the proposed

Fulton Hogan quarry near

Weedons and Templeton.

A 4052-signature petition

against the planned quarry was

handed over to the district council

last Wednesday.

“It would be a foolish council

that didn’t take notice of the fact

that a number

of people have

expressed their

distaste for it,”

said Mr Bland,

who represents

the Selwyn

Central Ward.

Jeff Bland

But he said

the district

council “can’t do much” other

than acknowledge the petition,

until Fulton Hogan apply for

resource consent. Their application

is expected to be submitted

this month.

The proposed quarry is at a

170ha piece of land at Curraghs,

Dawsons, Jones and Maddisons

Rds.

Mr Bland said once the

resource consent application is

submitted, councillors can factor

in the petition.

“It’s not the council’s issue at

the moment,” he said.

Templeton Residents’ Association

chairman Garry Kilday said

the residents will now wait for

Fulton Hogan’s application.

“We’re waiting for Fulton

Hogan to do its thing.

“It’s now been passed to the

powers that be [district council]

and it will do its thing with it.

What happens after you hand

over a petition, I have no idea,”

Mr Kilday said.

The residents aim was to get

their voice heard, he said.

“Basically it’s just voicing

opinion, and you’re getting an

idea of how much groundswell

there is against that opinion,”

Mr Kilday said.

Earlier this month, he said

the support for the petition was

“massive” and it had signatures

from Australia and the United

States.

Mr Bland said that personally,

he is opposed to the quarry’s

location as he believed it was too

close to houses.

“I understand that Fulton

Hogan have got to have a

quarry. I understand that where

they are is really ideal for them

. . . it’s near the city, near the

motorway.

“But I think it’s just a bit close

to town [Templeton]” Mr Bland

said.

Funding for

Rolleston

Rugby Club

relocation

THE DISTRICT council has

offered a package of funding

assistance to relocate the rooms

of the Rolleston Rugby Club from

Rolleston Reserve to Foster Park.

The club is scheduled to vacate

its Rolleston Reserve site from

next year’s rugby season to make

way for the Rolleston Town

Centre development.

Under the terms of the existing

lease, the district council is

responsible for the cost of

relocating the clubrooms.

However, because the club is

looking at the option of building

a new facility at Foster Park, the

district council has agreed to

provide a grant of $250,000.

That funding is about the

equivalent of relocation costs,

as a contribution to the new

rooms.

The club requested an

additional loan to assist with

construction costs.

The district council has offered

to provide a loan of $150,000 to

support building the club’s new

facility.

Snake Creek restoration supported

Selwyn

Waihora

Water Zone

Committee

chairman

Allen Lim

writes

about the Snake Creek

restoration project now

under way which aims to

turn a lowland drain into a

living spring:

The Snake Creek restoration is

now well under way.

In less than the first year of

three, this project is already

showing us how much can be

achieved by agency collaboration

with strong community input.

Several organisations and

your zone committee are

supporting the Water and

Wildlife Habitat Trust as it seeks

to restore a significant tributary

of the Selwyn River/Waikirikiri

that comes out between our

favourite fords, Chamberlains

and Coes.

The zone committee is committed

to making Coes Ford

swimmable again – and projects

like Snake Creek are crucial to

achieving that goal.

At our meeting earlier this

month, North Canterbury Fish

& Game officer Emily Arthur-

Moore gave us a great insight

into how much had been done

and how the challenges of a

project like this are being successfully

tackled.

A drain with a declining ecosystem

is rapidly becoming an

excellent example of a restored

waterway offering increased biodiversity

and improved recreational

opportunities, while at the

same time retaining its function

for adjacent land users.

Riparian planting, woody

debris, boulders and weirs are

being used to recreate an ecosystem

that will support biodiversity

and bolster stream health.

An immediate challenge is the

amount of sediment coming in,

especially after heavy rain events.

Sediment traps and an outof-stream

detention basin are

helping to deal with this.

Another challenge is funding.

A number of organisations

have already contributed towards

the estimated $600,000 to

complete Snake Creek.

A crowd-funding programme

aims to attract $56,000 to restore

a section of Silverstream (the

Snake Creek project is part of

this), of which $11,000 has been

found so far.

Visit https://bit.ly/2l1ONQv

for more information.

Another way you can contribute

is by volunteering – there’s

Email Emily if you’d like to

get your hands dirty – emoore@

I look forward to providing

updates on this and other projects

in future.

In the meantime, don’t hesitate

to talk to your zone committee

or local zone team members –

you can call them on 0800 324

Also look out for information

on the pending zone committee

Land your dream job in music with a

industry-focused degree through MAINZ,

SIT, Southern Institute of Technology.

MAINZ offers degree-level study that sets

you up for success in the music and audio

industries.

The Bachelor of Audio Engineering and

Production is a three-year applied degree,

designed to equip graduates with the necessary

skills to work in the music and audio-related

industries in New Zealand and overseas.

Programme Leader, Dr Oliver Hancock

says the Bachelors degree programme is an

exciting opportunity to provide a broader

Young leader recognised

SELWYN YOUTH Council

chairwoman Paige Sullivan’s

leadership and work in the

community has been recognised

with a Young Totara Award.

She was presented the award

recently by the Lincoln Rotary

Club for her outstanding

contribution to youth -orientated

programmes within Selwyn and

throughout New Zealand.

The award is from Rotary

clubs and aims to encourage role

models throughout the country.

Miss Sullivan, a Lincoln High

School student, was nominated

by Lincoln Rotary Club member

Murray Allison.

He said the award publicly

recognises the positive achievements

of young people and their

significant contributions by

youth to the life and well-being

of their community.

The award is for people under

the age of 21.

The Rotary club has begun

planting totara trees to commemorate

each award it has

sponsored.

The trees were donated by the

Kiwiflora Nurseries. Mr Allison

said the Rotary club was very

grateful.

The trees were planted at the

Lincoln Wetlands on Ellesmere

Rd.

Earlier this year Lincoln

University student Libby Twist

planted the first tree.

Libby was nominated for a

and deeper education in audio and music

production.

“We’ve seen a lot of changes to the audio

industry in recent years, with advances in

technology and changes in the way it’s used.

MAINZ is ready to prepare graduates for this

rapidly evolving employment market.”

Across the three years of the degree students

will progress from first year to some elective

pathways in year two, to a more flexible third

year involving a capstone project.

As well as the core audio engineering and

electronic music production components,

elective courses include an increased focus on

Fire rages, homes at risk

Ant big predator to insects

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 column aims

to raise public awareness

of biodiversity, the variety

of living things around

us. Check out the full list

of invertebrates found at

http://naturewatch.org.

nz/projects/backyardbiodiversity-bugs-inlincoln

NEW ZEALAND has 41 species

of ants of which 11 are endemic

and 30 are introduced species.

This is very low diversity

compared to Australia which has

as many as 1500 species or subspecies.

The most widespread ant

species in New Zealand is

the endemic southern ant

(Monomorium antarcticum).

POPULAR: The most widespread ant species in the country is the endemic

southern ant. ​

It is 3-5mm long, but can vary

in colour between colonies from

orange, yellow, brown and black.

The ant species is a generalist

predator of small insects, but can

scavenge and feed on honeydew

from aphids, scale insects and

mealybugs.

Nests are made in soil under

stones, pavers, in or under logs,

and are common in gardens, but

do not forage inside houses.

Dispersing females are winged

and mate before discarding

wings and burrowing into

soil to establish a

new colony.

Showcasing

Selwyn culture

CULTUREFEST is coming –

and residents are being invited

to join the district council and

the Christchurch Multicultural

Council to celebrate Selwyn’s

growing diversity.

The event is now in its

third year with groups from

around the world showcasing

their culture through art,

performance, sport and food.

District council senior events

and recreation advisor Dave

Tippett said CultureFest is

one of the key actions that the

district council and partners

are undertaking as part of the

recently launched Welcoming

Plan.

“The Welcoming Plan provides

a focus for how we as a district

can include newcomers in

community life in Selwyn.”

“We recognise our district’s

growing diversity and celebrate

this with CultureFest. It’s

also a great way to learn more

about the people in your

neighbourhood – we encourage

everyone to come down and

attend this free event,” he said.

Visitors can sit back and enjoy

over 20 different performances

by groups from China, Latin the

United States, Russia, Poland,

Iran and many more. There will

also be cuisine from more than

15 different cultures including

Indian, Spanish, Bulgarian,

Nigerian, Malaysian, Moroccan,

Jordanian, Iranian, Russian and

Ukrainian.

For the first time ever, there

will be an Indian professional

sport being demonstrated –

Kabaddi. If you haven’t seen or

heard of it before, it can be best

described as a cross between

rugby and tag, but without a

ball.

Residents will also experience

arts, crafts, as well as activities to

participate in.

There is something for the

whole family to experience

including bouncy castles, Pedalmania,

music, games, henna

tattoos and much more.

CultureFest is presented by the

district council, in partnership

with the Christchurch

Multicultural Council.

•CultureFest takes place

on Sunday September 30,

Time for Selwyn

youth to BOOST

There’s a new youth event coming to Selwyn in the October school holidays.

Residents from 13 to 18 years of age are being invited to join the Selwyn Youth Council with

support from the Selwyn District Council in a fun, action-packed week of BOOST events.

Selwyn Youth Council Chairperson Paige Sullivan says the creation of the new youth event is in

response to feedback about a lack of things to do in Selwyn for teenagers, particularly during the

school holidays.

“We looked at the huge success of KidsFest, an event aimed at children under the age of 13

during the July school holidays, and thought we should be doing something like that for teenagers

in our district,” Paige says.

“BOOST isn’t just a way to fill in your holiday. It’s a chance to meet people, try something

completely new, or just relax and have fun – all without leaving our amazing district.”

BOOST 2018 is taking place during the October school holidays and will feature a broad range

of events, activities and workshops to entertain, empower and develop Selwyn’s youth. Some

of the events include graffiti art workshops, parkour training, 3X3 basketball competitions, yoga

sessions, circo arts and a hip hop workshop.

There are also five key events on offer: BOOST Speak – a TEDtalk style evening with three inspiring

speakers, BOOST Spook – a horror walk in Foster Park, BOOST Market – a youth market in the

Rolleston Community Centre, BOOST Splash – a pool party at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre and

BOOST Out – the grand finale featuring food trucks, a skate jam, graffiti art and live performances.

For more information and to register, go to selwyn.govt.nz/boost.

District Plan Review – are we on the right track?

Should our planning rules encourage more medium-density development, like semi-detached and

terraced dwellings and low-rise apartments?

Should we review the requirement that only family members can live in a family flat?

Should it be easier to set up a home-based business, as long as certain standards are met?

These are just a few of the questions that many Selwyn residents are currently giving us feedback on,

as part of our District Plan Review.

The District Plan is our ‘rule book’ that governs how people can use and develop land. For example, if

you own or rent a property, it regulates things like what kind of activities you can undertake, what type

of buildings can be located or whether you can operate a business and what kind.

The Plan has to be reviewed every 10 years, and we’re currently undertaking initial public consultation

on a number of key draft changes, to check whether we’re on the right track with the review so far.

Hundreds of people have already visited our website to look at the topics we’re reviewing, learn more

about the proposed changes and provide feedback or complete a survey.

Consultation is open until Monday 8 October and you can find out more at www.selwyn.govt.nz/

districtplanreview.

New Coes Ford gates to ensure

visitor safety

New gates have been installed at Coes Ford to help ensure the

safety of visitors to the area during high river flow events.

The Council has installed the gates after discussions with the local

fire chiefs and residents of the area who were concerned that many

visitors are unaware of the risks the Selwyn river poses during high

river flows.

Council Asset Manager Murray Washington says most locals are

well aware that significant amounts of rain in the foothills can lead

to high river flows in the Selwyn river, but that visitors to Selwyn are

often not attuned to the associated risks.

“Many local residents know that flooding at Coes Ford can occur

up to 12 hours after the rain has stopped in the foothills. However,

visitors to our district cannot be expected to know that.

“The river can rise without any sign of rain at Coes Ford. The

only way we can ensure visitors’ safety is by preventing them

from crossing the ford during times of high flows, and moving

them on from the camping area altogether during Civil Defence

emergencies,” Mr Washington says.

Mr Washington acknowledges that when the gates are closed, this

will mean locals will need to use alternative and often longer routes

to travel into Christchurch City or to other parts of the district. “We

understand that this could be an inconvenience and we thank local

residents in advance for their patience and support.”

The decision to close the Coes Ford gates will be based on

Environment Canterbury river flow data, and only if significant rain

in the foothills is likely to cause high and dangerous river flows.

Previously, during Civil Defence events, the camping areas of the

Coes Ford campground could be gated off, but the ford itself could

still be accessed.

Let your taste buds explore

the world

CultureFest is a fantastic opportunity to take a culinary trip around

the world.

The event will play host to food stalls from 15 different

nationalities; you will be able to buy Indian, Spanish, Bulgarian,

Nigerian, Malaysian, Moroccan, Jordanian, Iranian, Russian and

Ukrainian dishes.

There may be a few extra surprises as well.

Senior Events and Recreation Advisor Dave Tippett says

CultureFest provides a great opportunity to try food you may not

experience in your day to day life.

“This is a great chance to wander around, and snack on food from a

wide range of cultures,” Mr Tippett says.

Please check out our Facebook page “CultureFest 2018” for more

information on food that will be available, as well as competitions

leading into the 30 September event, being held at Lincoln Domain.

Connect Canterbury: consultation on RPTP

Darfield gracious over Super Rugby loss

• By Jacob Page

DARFIELD RUGBY Club

president Scott McIlroy has

congratulated Southbridge on

being named the host of the

Crusaders v Highlanders Super

Rugby pre-season game next

year.

Darfield hosted last year’s

Farmlands Cup fixture and

drew a crowd of 5500, including

then-Prime Minister Bill

English

But the Canterbury Rugby

Football Union’s insistence a

spectator mound be constructed

appears to have been Darfield’s

undoing.

McIlroy said in May,

constructing a mound on the

ground is not viable due to

summer sport use.

Southbridge, the home of All

Blacks great Dan Carter, will

host the game next year and

while a date has not been confirmed,

it will be prior to round

SPORTS

one on February 15.

“We knew several months

ago the game wasn’t going to be

coming back,” McIlroy said.

“It is a shame because the

club worked really hard to try to

make sure we had the event for

at least a couple of years but it’s

just one of those things.”

“We wish Southbridge all the

best in hosting it and it is at least

a positive that the game will

remain in the Ellesmere region.”

“At the end of the day the

facilities that we have are what

we have and trying to make one

game a year work to please the

Canterbury Rugby Union probably

isn’t in our best interests.”

“We’ll keep working hard to

make sure our facilities are good

for our members,” said McIlroy.

Southbridge president Hamish

Gilbert said he was delighted his

club would host the game.

“It is fantastic to see the

Crusaders bringing their preseason

game out into the rural

community, especially to a

part of Canterbury that has a

very long and proud history of

rugby,” he said.

“We look forward to hosting

this prestigious event and being

able to showcase our fabulous

facilities to the wider rugby

community.”

Country own worst enemy

TOUGH DAY: Canterbury Country handed back the Farmers

Cup to Otago Country after a 33-29 loss in Rangiora on Saturday. ​

• By Jacob Page

CANTERBURY Country were

their own worst enemies in a

33-29 loss to Otago Country in

Rangiora on Saturday.

Canterbury Country coach

Nigel Smith said poor passing

and an inability to look after the

ball for long enough meant the

Farmers Cup went south for the

summer.

“We didn’t make the most of

our good start,” Smith said. “We

were our own worst enemy and I

left feeling we lost the game more

than they won it.”

“We let six or seven

opportunities go begging and

that kept them in the game.”

Smith said despite the attacking

for much of the first half,

his team was only level 12-12 at

halftime.

“The dropped ball and the

passing issues we had cost us,”

he said.

A change at halftime saw

Glenmark replacement halfback

Jordy Gray score a crucial try and

the hosts had the advantage yet

again. More errors would follow

and Otago Country pounced.

“Their tries came against the

run of play and that was frustrating.”

Smith said both the scrum

and line out worked well and

provided a decent platform for

winning rugby.

He praised centre Rob Samson

who had made the shift into the

midfield from fullback.

“He had good footwork and

soft hands,” he said. “When he

tried to bust through the defensive

line he had a lot of success.”

Tight head prop Patrick Clegg

was another who impressed with

his work-rate at scrum time and

around the park.

“He’s had a big season for us,”

Smith said.

“He’s done his scrummaging

work really well but it’s been his

ball carrying which has been a

big improvement in his game.”

Canterbury Country will finish

their representative season with a

game against Canterbury Maori

at Linfield Park on Saturday.

The kick-off time is yet to be

confirmed.

Greenpark A’s straight

shooting netball coach

Karen Ponsonby has

tasted Selwyn netball

success yet again this

year. Sports reporter

Jacob Page finds out

how netball goes

hand-in-hand with her

rural lifestyle and why

her summer weekends

can be just as busy as

her winter ones

Proud supporters of

Rugby & Netball in Selwyn

Doing it for the love of the game

What was your first memory of

netball?

We were a really sporty family

of eight boys and five girls. I’m

the youngest girl and four boys

are younger than me. We had a

team for any occasion. My older

sisters used to play netball in

Waimate, so I would follow them

to the courts.

How did your netball playing

days progress?

I played in Waimate then for

Waimate High School and St

Pat’s in Timaru as a defender,

usually a wing defence. I made

the South Canterbury Country

team for the first time in 1969.

That was a composite team from

Waimate, Fairlie and Twizel,

which went to the nationals in

those days.

What got you into coaching?

I had bad knees from playing

the game on the concrete courts.

I had one knee replacement two

years ago and will need another

one soon. When I left South

Canterbury I started coaching

the Dunsandel A team in 1987

and enjoyed it. I was made a life

member there in 2007.

When did your association

with Greenpark begin?

I came to Greenpark in 2002

and started coaching their

premier team. We have had a

fair bit of success over that time.

We won the Selwyn competition

in 2003, 2004, 2006, 2010, 2011

and of course, this year. The girls

don’t train during the week and

to be honest, I felt quite guilty

about winning the final like we

did because Broadfield was the

better team leading up to the

final. We don’t have a manager

and I have to find out which one

of their friend’s turns up so we

have a primary carer. It’s a tough

way to coach, I’m just fortunate

we have a lot of good readers of

the game out on court.

What’s the most enjoyable

thing about netball for you?

I do it for the love of the game.

What about your children?

One of my daughters is the

deputy principal at Waimate

High School which shows you

what a small world it is. While

the other still plays netball in the

Greenpark A team.

What do you do for a job?

My husband Leo and I have

been running Greenacres Fibre

Processing. We have 300 to 400

black and coloured sheep and

their wool is used in a lot of craft

work. We also export the wool to

places like Japan and Russia. It’s

something we’ve been involved

in for the last 30 years.

What makes a good fleece of

wool?

It comes down to good food,

good grass and good soil but a lot

of that is quite technical.

What do you do in your spare

time?

I used to play lawn bowls in

the summer, but I struggle to

get down on my knee now. We

do a lot of wool showing and

that takes up a lot of our time

on Saturdays and to be honest, it

takes me all summer to get over

the netball season.

Do you plan on returning

next year to coach Greenpark

A?

I think I’ve got another year

in me. We need another goal

shooter but we have our eye

on someone. I’ve often

mentioned to the girls about

dropping down to the masters

grade but most of them tell me

they’d rather retire than play in

that grade. My daughter played

in the team but swears to me the

final was her last game so maybe

I can retire and she can take over

or I could become our primary

carer.

How is the club going?

I think we are the only team

representing Greenpark and

that’s been part of the reason I’ve

stuck around and some of the

girls have done the same thing.

I’d like to see the club keep

going.

Netball South Pacific Island

Rolleston Samoa Experience October 2018

The team donating netball supplies

to Netball Samoa in 2013.

The Rolleston Netball Golden Oldies

are supporting a third team of nine

young netball ladies on a cultural

experience to Samoa. The girls

have been together for a year now,

working to raise money for the trip.

They have had to run meetings,

take minutes, plan fundraisers, keep

budgets, and source donations of

netballs, umpires tees, old netball

uniforms and stationery supplies.

While in Samoa they will initially

stay in Apia working with Netball

Samoa helping out at several

netball coaching and umpiring

clinics. They will also play the

national Under 14 side along with

other local teams. They will then

travel to the big island of Savaii (a

trip in itself!) staying in the village

of Fagamalo. While there they will

attend a traditional church service

and Sunday school, and also spend

the day at Fagamalo Primary School.

The remainder of the trip will be

back in Apia attending school at

Samoa College, St Mary’s College

and the Peace Chapel Primary

School.

Leanne, the team manager, is

excited to be returning to her old

school Samoa College but is pinning

her hope on the Rolleston girls to

win the challenge netball game!

The Golden Oldies themselves have

enjoyed several netball festivals

both locally and overseas and

are looking forward to sharing

some of the same netball

fellowship experiences with

the girls.

The Samoan experience will

also reinforce the value of

iNSPIRE about being generous,

being part of a team and being

grateful.

The team would like to thank the

generosity of their sponsors and the

community who have supported

the many fundraisers. Special thanks

too to those who have donated

stationery goods, teacher resources,

umpire tops, netball uniforms &

netball equipment.

Rush satisfied with

19th on world stage

• By Jacob Page

WORKING HARD:

Rolleston triathlete

Reece Rush comes

through the run transition

on his way to 19th in

his age-group at the

under-19 World Triathlon

Grand Final race, on the

Gold Coast,

PHOTO: ROB RUSH

PROMISING Rolleston

triathlete Reece Rush

might find inspiration in

his laundry for his next

race.

The 16-year-old Lincoln

High School student said

the start of the under-19

World Triathlon Grand

Final race, on the Gold

Coast, “felt like being in a

washing machine” and it

was something he would

need to work on.

Rush, the youngest competitor

in the field finished

19th in a time of 1hr 1min

2sec in the 16 to 19-yearold

category on Thursday.

He swam for 750m, cycled

for 20km and finished

with a 5km run.

“I wasn’t used to having

70 other starters to contend

with in the water,” he said.

“I was bumped around

with a lot of arms and

elbows.”

Rush has a cut above his

eye from a stray elbow during

the swim.

He said after coming out

of the water in the middle

of the field, he was able to

make up some ground during

the bike leg.

It was the 25 deg C temperatures

and race fatigue

which caught up to Rush

on the second leg of the

run.

“I didn’t have the legs to

maintain the speed that I

wanted but the heat played

a big part in that, coming

out of the New Zealand

winter made for challenging

conditions,” he said.

“There were some dark

moments in the run when

the body started to hurt but

I just tried to push on as

best I could.”

Rush said he would work

on trying to make cleaner

starts and try to build up

his endurance on the bike

for the upcoming New

Zealand season.

“I think the swim leg

caught me off-guard a little

bit so that will be a focus

but for my first big international

event I was happy

with how the race went,”

he said.

Rush will compete at the

New Zealand Secondary

Schools’ Road Cycling

Championships at the

end of this month and

would contest the Pak’n

Save Triathlon Festival in

November.

FINALLY, spring has

arrived, much to the delight

of gardeners around the

country.

Although September can

more often than not be

a wet and windy month,

temperatures are on the

rise, producing signs of

spring throughout the

garden.

Vege garden

Time for the final harvest

and removal of winter

maturing vegetables. By

staggering planting times,

these vegetables have

hopefully supplied your

kitchen with continuous

food over winter.

Where conditions allow,

for example, soil is not too

wet and the temperature

is rising, you can plant

the ‘hardier’ summer

vegetables. These include

asparagus, beetroot,

cabbage, cauliflower,

carrots, onion, radish,

silverbeet and spinach.

Improve existing

vegetable plots by adding

generous amounts of

compost before planting

new seasons vegetables.

Maintain a wary eye for

slugs and snails as they will

rapidly emerge in search of

tasty seedlings.

Flowering annuals

Time to prepare your

summer flower garden as

winter annuals are finishing

flowering. It’s a little early

for planting traditional

summer annuals, but

there are a number that

‘transcend’ this typical

growing season such

as alyssum, calendulas,

cornflower, lobelia,

nemesia, pansies and violas.

If you want to grow your

own summer flowering

annuals from seed, sow

them now in specific seed

raising mix and water

regularly to ensure even

germination. Seedlings

should be mature enough

for transplanting into the

garden approximately six to

eight weeks after sowing.

Bulbs

Carefully mark the

position of your late winter/

early spring flowering

bulbs if you want to grow

other plants in the same

area over the summer

months. Where bulbs are

flowering well, allow them

to naturalise in the garden.

This applies especially to

crocus, freesias, hyacinths,

iris, lachenalias, narcissus

and watsonias.

Fruit trees

In warmer areas, citrus

are still producing masses

of sweet fruit. Stone

fruit, apricots, cherries,

nectarines, peaches and

plums are all in full bloom,

as are pip fruit, apples

and pears. Hopefully,

weather conditions allow

for successful pollination

by bees, with sunny days

and no strong winds. Early

strawberry varieties are

now beginning to set fruit,

especially in warmer parts

of the country. Maintain a

good mulch of pea straw

or hay around the plants to

help keep the berries clean

and healthy.

Roses

Apply compost around

the base of existing and

new plants as it’s beneficial

for the plant’s health.

Commence fertiliser

applications from early

October onwards.

BRING

ON THE

WARM

WEATHER!

The weather the past week has been

delightful, but we need to remember

that the spring weather can be unsettled

through this month. Good gardeners are

patient gardeners and know that timing is

key. Be mindful that we can still get frosts

so don’t race out and plant seeds in the

garden just yet. Make sure that seedlings

are well protected, and that you only plant

things that are suitable for our climate. If

you have a greenhouse, or a sunny spot

inside you can raise seeds in Seed Raising

Mix in preparation for planting out the

seedlings later in the season.

Creating a raised veggie garden

If you are starting from scratch use our veggie garden

mix, it is designed to be planted straight into as it

has all the necessary nutrients needed to encourage

healthy growth and development.

For established gardens now is the time to dig

through some compost and some fertiliser. If you

prefer a more organic approach then use sheep

pellets or blood and bone.

What to grow, lettuce, carrots, beetroot, onions,

celery, broccoli, peppers, coriander, beans, spinach,

spring onions, peas.

Growing from seeds, use our seed raising mix to

raise seeds such as, carrots, radishes, peppers, peas,

silverbeet, chillies, tomatoes, cucumbers.

Turbocharged boost

for Hyundai Kona

• By Ross Kiddie

HYUNDAI New Zealand

has been well served by

an extensive sport utility

vehicle range.

For many years it has had

Santa Fe, IX crossover, and

Tucson, all have sold with

considerable success in

New Zealand. Not a company

to rest on its laurels,

Hyundai realised the need

to explore other segments

of the SUV market, and

just recently a newcomer

landed – the Kona.

The Kona is a small SUV,

not tiny, but it is a car for

those who like to travel

light. It arrives here in two

four-cylinder petrol engine

variations a 2-litre normally

aspirated unit and a

1.6-litre turbocharged unit.

The latter arrives with fourwheel-drive,

the 2-litre

model is front wheel-drive

only.

Prices start at $31,990 for

the 2-litre, an extra $5000

will buy you into a high

grade Elite version, while

the turbocharged models

sit at $36,990 and $41,990

(Elite). At the time of print,

Hyundai New Zealand has

just launched a fully electric

Kona, pricing for the

EV is yet to be announced

The subject of this

evaluation is the Elite turbo

which drives through a

seven-shift dual clutch

automatic gearbox.

Hyundai claims 130kW at

just 5500rpm, if you add

in 265Nm all of the way

from 1500rpm to 4500rpm,

it’s easy to fathom out how

free-revving and willing the

engine is through the midrange.

That also has a complementary

effect on fuel

usage. Rated at 6.7-litre per

100km (42mpg), the Kona

HYUNDAI KONA: Normally-aspirated or

turbocharged engine option.

• Price – Hyundai Kona

Elite turbo, $41,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4165mm; width,

1800mm; height,

1565mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1591cc, 130kW,

265Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8sec

• Fuel usage –

6.7l/100km

is a bit of a fuel miser; well,

at around 1500kg there’s

not a lot of weight to drag

around, so that is also beneficial.

Against the stopwatch

the Kona turbo will cut

out a standstill to 100km/h

time of 8sec, and will leap

through a highway overtake

in 4.8sec.

The Kona feelts taut and

tightly connected to the

road through the steering.

That’s an attribute I rate

highly in any car, and it

doesn’t disappoint. A lot of

that is due to its compact

stature, the Kona is agile

and nimble. Of course,

four-wheel-drive adds in

a lot of natural grip, the

Kona feels sedan-like with

its handling and comes

without the cost of suspension

firming.

Occupant comfort is high,

the spring and damper rates

are a balanced compromise,

the Kona has suspension

which deals to all road

surfaces with positive

absorption. In comparison

to its 2-litre stablemate,

the four-wheel-drive

version has to have a fully

independent rear end and

that provides good freedom

of movement at the rear,

something that hampers the

front-wheel-drive version

ever so slightly.

That aside, the Kona in

both forms still has my seal

of approval. In Elite form it

wants for nothing in terms

of specification, it has a

high level of fitment.

Personally, I’d opt for

the non-Elite model, I’m

more of a cloth trim fan as

opposed to leather, but that

is a personal preference.

However, in all forms

the Kona is a worthy

addition to the Hyundai

stable.

stringent border controls

New Zealand Pork is calling for greater border protection against the

spread of African swine fever (ASF), a deadly pig disease sweeping

through China and Eastern Europe.

New outbreaks of the disease, which has

no effective treatment or vaccine, have

been reported recently in China – home to

half of the world’s population of pigs. The

disease has also been expanding through

Eastern Europe since 2014, where it first

spread from Lithuania to Poland and

Estonia. New outbreaks this year have been

reported in Russia, Romania and Hungary.

A 10th EU country – Bulgaria – has

reported the disease this month. Officials

in Denmark, one of Europe’s leading pork

exporters, have expressed concern that it is

“only a matter of time” before ASF reaches

their country.

While the disease presents no risk to

humans, it is devastating to local pig

populations and the commercial industry.

Often fatal in pigs, once the disease is

detected, entire herds need to be culled

to prevent further spread of the infection.

African swine fever can also be passed on

through infected meat – it can survive for

years in frozen carcases – and spread from

clothing, boots and soil.

NZ Pork chair Eric Roy says the industry

is asking for the Government to step up

surveillance of the spread of the disease

and consider more stringent controls of

pork imported from affected countries.

“New Zealand imports considerable

quantities of pigmeat from the EU where

the disease continues to spread,” Mr Roy

says.

“With the way the disease spreads, we

are particularly concerned about the risk

of African swine fever arriving in this

country through infected meat from many

of the regions which currently export pig

meat products to New Zealand.

“This would have a potentially

devastating effect on the local commercial

industry, which generates over $750

million per year for the local economy.”

Almost 60 per cent of pork consumed

in New Zealand is imported from over

25 countries around the world, including

China, Poland and Estonia, as well as

Denmark and Spain. So far in 2018, almost

53,000 kilograms of pork products were

imported to New Zealand from China,

including a small amount classified as

dried product – of particular concern as

the ASF virus in these products might

not have been inactivated through the

treatment process.

“The major risk to our industry is that

infected meat gets into the lifestyle or

para-commercial pig population through

the feeding of uncooked food scraps, a

practice that is banned but can still occur

when hobby farmers are unaware of the

risks. Our wild population could also come

into contact with food waste, which is a

major problem in Europe.”

At least one outbreak in Europe was

traced to sausage meat left behind after a

roadside picnic.

“This sort of occurrence is completely

outside the control of our farmers, and

yet an African swine fever outbreak could

potentially wipe out our local industry, if it

was to spread from the hobby farm or feral

pig population,” Mr Roy says.

The vast majority of official notifications

of ASF being made to the World

Organisation for Animal Health by

countries involved in the current outbreak

of the disease in Eastern Europe declare

the source of the outbreak to be ‘unknown

or inconclusive’.

“This is particularly important given that

New Zealand is trading pork with the EU

sector under virtually identical rules that

apply to inter-EU trade – standards which

have done nothing to stop the continuing

spread of the disease through Europe,” Mr

Roy says.

A lush new

BEFORE

lawn will set

off your home

These

Whether it’s an established property or a new build,

nothing sets off a home quite like a lush, green lawn.

And with the arrival of spring, now is the right time of

year to establish a new lawn, advises Zac and Ashley

Swale of Canterbury Lawns.

The company specialises in two types of new lawn

– hydroseeding and roll-out Lush Lawn. The efficient

and cost-effective hydroseeding method is a sprayon

application of water, grass seed, wood fibre mulch,

fertiliser, and a ‘tackifier’, which holds it all together as

the seed grows. Within four to six weeks, providing

conditions are right, your grass will be well on the way

to becoming your pride and joy.

Fundamental to achieving those results, however,

are firstly the preparation, and secondly, adequate and

correct watering. Zac’s decade of experience in the

road construction and landscaping sectors ensures the

ground will be prepared correctly for the hydroseeding

to be successful, and for the watering, he recommends

having an automated irrigation system installed, as it

is more convenient and uses less water than manual

watering. He works closely with Rolleston-based

Freeman Irrigation, plus he offers comprehensive

advice on maintaining the lawn.

For situations where lawn is required immediately,

Zac and his team at Canterbury Lawns will install

roll-out Lush Lawn, and again will advise on care and

maintenance to keep it looking its best.

In addition to supplying the lawn, Canterbury Lawns

can take care of all your landscaping requirements

including pathways, decking, fencing and garden

preparation, ensuring you will have a property to be

proud of, and where you can enjoy entertaining family

and friends throughout the warmer months.

As well as residential work, Canterbury Lawns also

supplies lawn and landscaping services for commercial

premises. Ashley and Zac live locally and enjoy

providing professional services to beautify properties

for residents and businesses across Christchurch and

the Canterbury region.

Enhance your property

with a cool new pool

On those hot, dry summer days and balmy

evenings we are lucky enough to enjoy in Canterbury,

nothing beats the pleasure of cooling off in the pool

– especially if it’s just a few steps away in our own

back yard.

And we don’t need a lifestyle block to accommodate

a pool. Pool specialists Lagoon Pools install pools

from three metres to 12 metres in length and in a

range of widths, making it possible to find something

to suit everyone’s requirements, both in size and in

use, and they will come to your property and advise

on size, type and location.

“Large pools are great when there is a bigger space

but small pools are also very popular,” says director

Julie Hastings, who owns and operates the company

with husband Warren.

As she explains, a smaller pool can still be used for

exercise as well as relaxing, while adding features can

further enhance the area.

“Our pools become a focal point all year round

with pool lighting, fountains etc., which can also be

added.”

Any pool can transform the outdoor area into

a further living space and provide a special, idyllic

place to enjoy some quality time, Julie says.

“We are all so busy these days that having space

in your own home to completely relax as well as

entertain family and friends is the ideal.”

The pools take around five days to install and the

Lagoon

Pools

finishing touches take four to eight weeks, depending

on the different designs.

Lagoon Pools can take care of just the pool

installation, or they can offer the whole package and

finish the complete job.

“It is always satisfying to see the project through

from concept to finish – we can turn a vision into

reality,” Julie says.

Pools can be installed all year round, not

just in spring and summer, so to enquire about

having a new pool installed when the time is

right for you, contact Lagoon Pools, phone

0800 927 282 or 349 2160, and for more information,

Restoring your home

to sparkling condition

While spring-cleaning is often thought of

as an ‘inside job’, sprucing up the outside

of our properties is equally important,

not just for appearance purposes, but also

for maintaining the property’s value, and

saving on costly repair work down the

track.

And that’s where Kleenwash Property

Services (KWPS) come into the picture.

As owner Phillip Fisher says, for most of us

our home is our most valuable asset, so we

need to look after it and take pride in it. A

well maintained home will hold its value,

and also help meet insurance requirements,

he says.

KWPS offers a wide range of services to

restore home and outdoor areas to sparkling

condition, such as gutter cleaning, moss

treatments, silicone sealing, roof coatings,

house soft wash, window cleaning, pest

control, swimming pool cleaning and

painting, water-blasting and anti-graffiti

treatments.

Pest control is another of the professional

services their customers appreciate, Phillip

says. They include control of spiders and

flies – both inside and outside the home.

To keep tile, Colorsteel® or corrugated

iron roofs in good condition, KWPS

provides treatments for moss, lichen and

algae, and will also clean guttering up

to 15 metres high. They also treat moss,

lichen and algae on paths, patios, decks and

fences. This three-stage treatment includes

growth inhibitor and a silicone sealer that

lasts for two years.

Homeowners with the DIY spirit may

feel they can tackle some of these jobs

themselves, but as Phillip points out, this

can be risky for those with no experience.

“Life is too short to take risks,” he says,

“and there’s no need to. Our professional

staff are fully trained in all aspects of

health and safety and they all hold Site Safe

passports.”

All KWPS services are guaranteed, and

discounts are offered for senior citizens

and for customers that have more than

one service carried out on the same day.

Choose your new carpet in

your home surroundings

Recarpeting your home may be one of the

biggest undertakings you as a homeowner

will make when it comes to updating the

décor.

It’s one thing to view carpet and hard

flooring samples in a shop; it’s another to

have the samples brought to you where

they can be viewed in your own home,

surrounded by your own furniture and

colour schemes.

That is the advantage Harrisons Carpet

brings to the market. Their mobile carpet

retailers are available seven days a week to

bring a wide range of flooring samples to

your home.

For five years, Amanda Wilson has

owned and operated Harrisons Carpet

Canterbury Country, covering the Selwyn

District. The combination of the quality

flooring products Harrisons supplies, and a

genuine interest in her clients, has Amanda

loving what she does.

“It’s a real privilege to be invited into

people’s homes,” she says, “and the trust

they put in me.”

Initial consultations are done over the

phone, or online at the Harrisons website

(www.harrisonscarpet.co.nz), and a

mutually convenient time is scheduled for

Amanda to come to you.

“I’ve grown to really enjoy the Selwyn

District. It’s a beautiful office to work from.”

With laser technology and smart devices,

measuring and quoting is a simple, quick

process, done on the spot for you. Carpet

is chosen, arrangements are made to

move furniture – you can do it yourself,

or Harrisons offers a competitively

priced service – and the installation takes

place. This is usually carried out over no

more than one or two days, as quickly

and conveniently as possible, with fully

qualified, professional installers.

As part of her service, Amanda is

always available to offer advice and tips,

suggestions on décor, and you have the

satisfaction of knowing you are buying

from a local business owner.

There is a wealth of information on the

Harrisons website, including detailed

profiles of the flooring products available,

regular specials to help with budgets, a

buying guide with important questions to

ask yourself, details about guarantees and

warranty, and several finance options with

leading New Zealand lenders.

Irrigation

vital in hot,

dry weather

SELWYN TIMES

Phil Hudson installing an irrigation system

With the Metservice forecasting a long,

hot summer for Canterbury, homeowners

will want to make full use of their outdoor

areas to entertain family and friends,

so having lawns and gardens in tip-top

condition will be a priority.

Phil Hudson of Freeman Irrigation

advises that spring is the best time to have

maintenance work done on irrigation

systems so they are in good working order

to meet summer demand. This will also

prevent the inconvenience and additional

costs of having landscaping repaired if

problems are discovered and need fixing

during summer.

“Some irrigation system problems are

easily fixed, but they have to be identified

to be repaired,” Phil says, “so now is the

ideal time to book in for maintenance and

servicing.”

The most important part of keeping an

irrigation system in good working order

is having regular maintenance done on the

sprays, rotors and solenoid valves, Phil says.

Some of the basic problems commonly

encountered are:

• Clogged sprinklers

• Leaking sprinklers and valves

• Obstructed sprinklers

• Leaking/blocked solenoid valves

• Overspray onto footpaths, streets or

buildings

• Design problems

• Missing nozzles

• Pipe leaks or breaks

Smart controls for irrigation systems are

convenient for homeowners, and many

people have been asking about those, Phil

says.

“We have a range of smartphone

controllers and rain sensors that can be

fitted to most systems, allowing you to have

easy control from anywhere.

“Also, if you wish to save money and

conserve water, a good rain sensor is an

affordable solution. We can supply and

fit the Wireless Rain-Clik Sensor that

automatically shuts off your sprinkler

system, so you don’t have to worry if you

are away from home when it rains.”

As well as playing a key role in the

local economy, Phil also supports the

community. He has recently

donated and installed an

irrigation system at Rolleston

College, where the students

are developing a vegetable

and fruit tree garden, with the

focus on sustainability.

The Cancer Society has

also had an irrigation system

installed in the grounds of

its new Rolleston building,

Open up

your home

to summer

Enjoying your outdoor living areas and

increasing air flow through the home on

hot summer days is easy when there are

bi-fold doors or triple sliders.

With the doors folding into one another,

bi-folds allow part or all of a space to be

opened, and as they are slim line they only

take up a small space when slid across, with

the rally wide opening letting the outdoors

into your living room.

Triple sliders also have a generous

opening and are great where there is

limited deck space or a smaller courtyard.

These pick-up sliders operate on a system

where the first panel slides in behind the

second, picking it up and sliding both in

behind the third panel for a seamless twothirds

opening.

The advantages of bi-fold doors and triple

sliders is the large glass area that allows

the sun to warm up the house in winter

as double glazing holds the heat in while

keeping it out in summer.

Bi-fold doors and triple sliders are two

of the most popular aluminium joinery

doors produced by Ultimate Design and

Renovation, who manufacture aluminium

joinery to suit the style and size of any

home. They also offer the option of low-e

glass, which has an insulated spacer bar and

is filled with argon gas ensuring better heat

retention, less condensation and reduced

solar gain.

Ultimate Design and Renovation also

produce bi-fold and sliding windows,

windbreaks and conservatories, while

their casement windows are a real winner.

These tall, skinny windows can be opened

to a 90-degree angle providing excellent

ventilation. Many of their customers have

been choosing sliding windows for their

kitchens, due to their generous opening,

which is ideal for handing food out to the

barbecue area and bringing fresh air into

the kitchen.

Trapping the sun while blocking the wind

and keeping dry from the rain is easily

achieved with a conservatory or windbreak

wall or roof. You can have a Therma-panel

roof (a strong yet lightweight product),

have full glass, or choose to have some glass

panels to allow light through. Windbreaks

protect from the elements, making them

great in inclement, warm weather when you

would rather be outside. All are customdesigned

to suit the architecture of the

house, whether it’s a modern or character

home.

Unlike conservatories, not all windbreaks

need building consent (size and their siting

is relevant). An Ultimate Design and

Renovation consultant will be happy to call

and advise you on council regulations, and

can even look after the consenting process

– just another way the company takes the

stress away when you are making those

structural changes around your home.

Ultimate Design and Renovation have

three full-time professional and efficient

installing teams so there are no delays

waiting for contractors. Give them a call

on 03 349 8951, email office@udr.co.nz,
