Failure to fund intersection

improvements criticised

• By Emily O’Connell

WEST MELTON residents will

have to wait at least three years

before proposed improvements

to State Highway 73 are

reconsidered.

The improvements, which

included the installation of traffic

lights at the intersection of SH73

and Weedons Ross Rd, weren’t

included in the New Zealand

Transport Agency’s National

Land Transport Programme for

2018-21.

West Melton Residents’

Association member Bruce

Russell has been campaigning

for more than 10 years for

something to be done about the

busy intersection.

He’s “bloody annoyed” at the

NZTA’s decision and says the

area is “very, very dangerous.”

“Obviously the criteria to upgrade

this corner is a death . . . a

fatal accident,” he said.

Mr Russell believes traffic

lights would help solve the issue.

NZTA crash analysis data

shows there have been six

crashes around the intersection

since 2006.

Selwyn MP Amy Adams said

she was “incredulous” at the

decision and was advised in June

by the NZTA it had identified the

need for traffic lights and signals

at the intersection.

from the editor’s desk

THE MESSAGE doesn’t get much clearer

on pages 4 and 5 today: If you drive over

the legal alcohol limit there’s a high chance

you’ll be caught.

Last Tuesday, Lincoln policeman Andy

Williamson made a visit to The Famous Grouse and gave a very

sobering and straight shooting talk about drink driving.

You could have heard a pin drop as he addressed the big crowd

– there for the weekly raffles and lucky draw.

Williamson got a big round of applause. The checkpoints,

random stopping and police tactics to stop motorists before they

get behind the wheel has been a talking point.

But the message hasn’t reached some. Two drivers were caught

that night and another was picked up later in the week.

That’s just plain dumb.

Father continues to

seek answers over son’s death

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

IT HAS been one year since

grieving father Geoff Booth lost

his 21-year-old son to suspected

suicide.

Yet his battle to seek answers

into whether his son Liam

received the necessary help from

health authorities leading up to

his death remains ongoing.

Last year Mr Booth laid a

complaint with the Canterbury

District Health Board after Liam

was found dead in Beckenham

Park, near his flat, on October 2.

The case is before the coroner.

The CDHB has since undertaken

a serious event review to

identify opportunities to improve

its systems and processes.

Mr Booth said in the original

report the CDHB “attributed

no blame to themselves” and

described the report as a “whitewash.”

His concerns were the report

did not name any of the staff

members involved and dates

leading up to Liam’s death were

incorrect.

The CDHB has since come back

to him with a revised copy of the

report.

CDHB mental health services

clinical manager Vicki Dent said

family involvement and feedback

to identify any inaccuracies is a

vital part of the review process

before the final report is released.

Mr Booth is planning to lodge

a complaint with the Health and

Disability Commissioner.

Last week Mr Booth received

an apology from CDHB chief

of psychiatry Dr Peri Renison

for Liam’s death, but the CDHB

INTERNATIONAL

would not comment further.

Mr Booth said the apology is a

start, but the CDHB needs to act

on recommendations from the

review.

The recommendations were

ensuring the treatment and

discharge policy is followed for

future patients and information

for supporting families is made

available.

The policy includes involving

the family if permission is granted

by the patient, and addresses

discharging goals and the physical

and mental health needs of a

patient.

Mr Booth said the CDHB didn’t

follow the policy in Liam’s case.

“I wasn’t privy to any of that

because it didn’t happen,” Mr

Booth said.

Eighteen days before his death,

Liam had threatened to harm

himself at Halswell Quarry Park.

Liam was taken to Christchurch

Hospital for assessment before he

was discharged.

Mr Booth has since told the

CDHB that hospital staff wrongly

discharged Liam and took his

word he wasn’t going to harm

himself.

The review said there was clear

documentation as to why admission

to hospital under the Mental

Health Act was not thought to be

appropriate.

It said Liam was opposed to admission

and the clinical opinion

was not to forcibly admit him.

But Mr Booth said staff then

had the opportunity to get Liam

hospitalised and the support he

needed.

The report said staff members

were not identified as expected.

Police give sobering message

Selwyn police are

targeting bars and hotels

in an effort to crack down

on drink driving

POLICE HAVE taken the fight

against drink driving into

licensed premises.

Bar patrons have been given

a sobering address by Senior

Constable Andy Williamson of

Lincoln police about the police’s

concern over the level of drink

driving in the district.

In recent

weeks patrols

and checkpoint

operations have

caught a number

of drivers over

the limit.

The Selwyn

Andy

Williamson

Times revealed

last week police

are concerned

about the number of older

motorists who continue to drink

and drive.

Senior Constable Williamson

told patrons at a busy Famous

Grouse Hotel in Lincoln that

licensed premises were being

targeted.

The Lincoln area has been a

focus for police in recent weeks.

“Police are apprehending

intoxicated drivers every week,

with four being apprehended last

Thursday night (September 20)

alone,” he told patrons.

“This hotel and others in

the district will continue to be

targeted by all police. Police don’t

want to apprehend and prosecute

drunk drivers. We would rather

prevent them driving. However,

we will do whatever we can to

prevent unnecessary death and

trauma on our roads. We make

no apology for this.”

Senior Constable Williamson

received a loud round of applause

from patrons. The hotel was busy

for the Lincoln Club’s weekly

GOOD ADVICE

•Make safe travel

plans before you

start drinking and

stick to them.

•Plans made during

or after drinking are

likely to lack good

judgement.

ISSUE: Bar

patrons have

been given

a sobering

address

by Senior

Constable

Andy

Williamson

about

concerns over

the level of

drink driving in

the district.

Tuesday club night.

Senior Constable Williamson

said he had gone to the hotel

because he knew it would be

busy, so the message would get to

as many as possible.

He praised The Famous

Grouse for its host

responsibilities.

•Be aware that you

may still be over the

limit the next day

and not well rested.

•Don’t go along

with other people’s

bad decisions to

drive while they’re

impaired.

“The Famous Grouse staff and

management are very proactive

in preventing intoxicated drivers

leaving their premises. This issue

is caused by patrons, not the

management of the hotel,” he

said.

It is the only licensed premises

in Lincoln that has courtesy vans

(two) to take patrons home, he

said.

Senior Constable Williamson

said he was pleased with the

response.

“It went really well. People

listened, which is always a good

indication. And secondly, they

actually applauded at the end,

which I thought was quite a cool

thing.

“I have had a lot of positive

comments about it. That’s the

only hotel I’ve done it at. It’s not

to say I won’t do it at other hotels

but it just was the starting point

really.”

Reinforcing the drink drive

message was vital, he said.

“The police have a prevention

first policy. Although we can sit

outside hotels and do random

checkpoints, we would rather

prevent drink driving before it

happens. I visit hotels a lot and if I

suspect people have

been or are going to

be drunk driving, I

will approach these

people and talk about

it with them.

“The police also

receive information

from the public

about suspected

drunk drivers and

we will talk to those drivers about

their behaviours and advise them

they need to arrange other ways

of getting to and from licensed

premises.

“They are also told about the

consequences if they don’t change.

They will be caught by police.”

Lincoln Club president Lynn

Townsend said he was aware

the police were going to talk to

patrons, and agreed it had been well

received. He said it was important

police and community hotels work

together to prevent drink driving

and educate motorists about other

options.

Failure to fund intersection

improvements criticised

•From page 1

“These improvements had been

recommended for inclusion in

both the 2018/21 Regional and

Land Transport programmes,”

she said.

However, NZTA director regional

relationships Jim Harland

said being included in the RLTP

“does not guarantee inclusion

and funding in the

NLTP.”

He said the intersection

didn’t meet the new

threshold for funding

under the investment assessment

framework.

“Using this framework,

it was assessed as a

medium crash risk and

safety alignment, with

a low benefit cost ratio,”

Mr Harland said.

District councillor Craig

Watson said he was “deeply

concerned for the people of West

Melton who everyday take their

life into their own hands crossing

that road.”

He said residents do take the

intersection carefully but it seems

NZTA will not fix the intersection

until there is a serious accident

and someone is hurt.

Mr Harland said safety is a top

priority for the transport agency

but “funding has to be targeted

to areas which have the greatest

need for improvements.”

He said the project could be

considered in the next NLTP.

Ms Adams is concerned the

decision may be a

consequence of the

current Government’s

cutting $5 billion of

funding from regional

highways.

“Under this Government

we are paying

more than ever in petrol

taxes, but necessary

road safety work

is not being carried

out. It is not acceptable,” she said.

When asked about this, Mr

Harland said “the 2018-21 forecast

expenditure on Canterbury

regional network improvements

is $702 million, compared to $725

million in 2015-18.”

“So the difference in spending

in this category is not large,” he

said.

A BID to stop water supplies

from being permanently

chlorinated in Malvern has

failed.

Retired farmer Brian

Thompson, Malvern Community

Board

deputy chairman

Kerry

Pauling and

Whitecliffs

Township

Committee

chairwoman

Jodie

Thompson

made a deputation

at the

district council over the issue

recently. It was an attempt to

stop the permanent chlorination

of the Malvern Hills Hartleys Rd

water supplies.

It is planned to be permanently

chlorinated this month,

while the Sheffield /Waddington

supplies were fast tracked in

June because of E. coli.

Mr Thompson argued the

Hartleys Rd scheme was not

risky and there has been no

breaches at the treatment plant

for more than three years.

The district council passed

a resolution recommending it

continue its risk-based approach

to drinking water schemes with

filtration, ultraviolet treatment

and emergency chlorination.

“It was disappointing. I haven’t

given up,” Mr Thompson said.

An email from district council

water services asset manager

Murray England to Mr

Thompson confirmed there had

not been a contamination at the

treatment plant since August

2015 due to E. coli.

But Mr England said the last

transgression detected in the

Hartleys Rd scheme’s reticulation

was in March.

At the meeting, district councillor

Pat McEvedy asked that the

information it used to make the

decision be released to the public.

The information will be tabled

in the November audit and risk

sub-committee agenda after it is

made public.

Mr Thompson said his next

move will be determined when

the district council releases the

information.

told Selwyn Times pipe breaks,

A PLACE for peaceful

meditation.

That’s what the Sri Lankanbased

Buddhist temple, Samadhi

Buddhist Vihara, was looking

for when it decided to move from

its Hornby location last year.

Springs Rd proved too noisy

for the temple so it decided

to purchase 4ha of land on

Maddisons Rd through

donations it had collected.

What the temple didn’t realise

was months after making the

move, Fulton Hogan would

reveal its plan to create a quarry

on a 170ha piece of land at

Curraghs, Dawsons, Jones and

Maddisons Rds, Weedons,

opposite its temple.

Temple resident monk

Makuludeniye Somarathana

said he was “shocked” and

“disappointed” by the news

and he’s concerned the quarry

could disturb its peace and

quiet.

“Finally we decided this place

was suitable for the meditation

centre . . . we were totally

destroyed,” Bhante Somarathana

said.

there’s not much it can do – he’s

attended its public meetings

on how to write a submission on

the proposal.

And now he’s waiting for

Fulton Hogan to lodge its

Fulton Hogan was expected to

lodge its application last month.

But South Island general manager

lodge its resource consent application

in early November.

When asked about the delay,

Mr Stewart said Fulton Hogan is

wishing to ensure it has consulted

widely with the community

lodges its application.

“Fulton Hogan has at the

forefront of our minds the importance

He believes the temple’s “fears

should be funded directly by

annual lease fee applies to the

Bill Woods – I read your

comments on the proposed

charges for sports teams using

council reserves as being fair

to all, stating some will pay

more and some will pay less.

It is clear that the information

that you based your comments

on was supplied by the council

spin doctors. You are obviously

unaware that the reason the

council spin doctors use the

words some will pay more and

some will pay less is to cover up

the inequality of those who will

pay more to those who will pay

less. Out of the 24 reserves, 19

will pay more and those who

pay less number only three. How

this can be determined as fair

defies any form of logic other

than the council trying to justify

taking over the management

of reserves and community

centres, resulting in rising costs

associated with this. Most, if

not all the reserves, were run

by committees that, along with

the sports clubs which used

the reserves, worked together

to run the reserve as efficiently

as possible. Some even built

amenities and financed them

with fundraising and volunteer

labour. Now we have a district

council that wants to run

everything as a commercial

enterprise, with paid staff to do

what volunteers have happily

done for more than a hundred

years. This subject deserves more

in depth investigation than a

letter to the editor can do, apart

from stating that you are wrong

when you claim that increases to

sports clubs is being fair.

District Council chief

executive David Ward –

The Selwyn District Council is

committed to providing sports

clubs throughout the district

with fair and equitable access to

good quality sports grounds and

reserves that are fit for purpose.

Unfortunately that’s not the

impression that Selwyn Times

readers will have after reading

the article Sports groups

surprised by new charging plan

(September 19), which contains

a number of inaccuracies. The

article claimed the district

council is considering bringing

in a district-wide charge for all

sporting clubs and organisations

in Selwyn.

This is not true. It is correct

that the district council is

looking to review how sporting

clubs and organisations are

charged for the use of reserves

and grounds, but there are no

plans to introduce a new fee or

levy.

Currently, sports clubs and

organisations pay fees and

charges which have been set by

individual reserve committees.

These

charges vary

widely across

the district

at different

reserves,

depending

on the local

committee and

the sporting

club. For

example, some

clubs may pay

no fees or receive

discounted fees,

while some

sports may be paying

different charges in

different locations, charged

by different committees.

The district council

wants to create a fair and

consistent approach to

charging for reserves, and

is proposing to review

the current charging

regime, beginning with

identifying the anomalies

and inconsistencies across

the district.

The review will include

careful consultation with

clubs and committees

to ensure any potential

changes don’t have a

negative impact on local

communities and do not

create a financial barrier

to participation in sports

and recreation activities.

There has not been any

discussion on what charges

will be proposed in the

future, nor on

the notion of

placing a levy

on clubs.

Any

potential

changes

to existing

charges would

be some way

off, and it is

likely that any

recommended

changes

would need

to go through

a future Annual Plan

process.

The district council will

be communicating with

sports clubs in the coming

weeks to begin the review.

David Ward

Selwyn Times

editor Barry Clarke

responds – The district

council is considering how

it charges for sports use

on recreation reserves.

That may have an impact

on users, which includes

sports clubs.

In our first article on the

issue (September 12), the

district council told Selwyn

Times: “Charges for sports

use recreation reserves

across the district will be

considered by the council’s

working party that is

looking at the transition to

district-wide rating. This

matter will be looked at

later in the year.”

In the Malvern

Community Board agenda

of May 28, there was

a response to ongoing

negotiations with the

Darfield Tennis Club

reported by the Selwyn

Times about the high costs

of participating in the

sport – rent, fees and rates.

In the agenda, the

district council responded

with an update to those

concerns: “The issue

of such charges for all

sports clubs located on

recreation reserves across

the district is currently

being considered as part

of the implementation

consideration of the

district-wide rate for

reserves. The objective is to

have consistent charging

of such matters across the

district.”

In the issue of September

19, Selwyn Times sought

reaction from sports

organisations about

the possibility of a new

charging regime. Those

we spoke to were not

aware as the district

council had not yet got to

the point of discussing it

with them.

The charging issue is

going to be a contentious

one. There there will be

winners and losers.

We’ll keep you posted.

AN UPDATED bylaw aiming

to crack down on mobile traders

across Selwyn is now in place.

The district council has approved

its Public Places Bylaw

2018 and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in Public

Places 2018.

It is the result of an increasing

number of

mobile traders,

particularly

food carts and

vans, which

are seeking

to operate in

Selwyn.

The bylaw

came into

force on

Monday and

will see vendors charged a fee of

$175 per year to be able to operate

in Selwyn.

It regulates where mobile vendors

can trade, and sets out controls

to meet health and safety

requirements and to protect the

public from nuisance.

Yet a reserve committee bid

to have the authority to police

mobile traders at reserves has

failed.

A submission was made by

Rolleston Reserve management

committee chairman Jens

Christensen asking committees

to have delegated authority to

police mobile traders.

He said he tried to convince

the district council the committee

is “on the ground” and it

should be able to police mobile

traders at the reserve’s car park.

Mr Christensen told the

district council it would need

a large number of staff to work

outside normal business hours

for mobile traders to be regulated.

He said different mobile traders

will come and park at the car

park to trade for free most weeks.

“We know what is happening

down there, council staff

wouldn’t have a clue,” he said.

Legal advice from environmental

law firm Adderley Head

said the district council has the

ability to delegate authority.

But also said given it remains

liable for any function delegated

under the bylaw, it is important

it operates a process it is confident

in.

District councillor Craig

Watson said it did not want volunteers

to be enforcing laws and

putting themselves at risk.

“It is about looking after the

safety of the volunteers because

they are really important,” he

said.

Cr Watson said he was disappointed

only eight submissions

were received on what he would

have thought would be a big issue

for local businesses.

“I quite like food trucks but

would have thought there would

be more submissions”.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder, who operates a mobile

butchery every Thursday at the

South Point shopping centre

in Faringdon, said while he

was aware the bylaw was being

reviewed he had not heard from

the district council.

He is hoping to get permission

to be able to move to different

Working together to celebrate heritage

Historian and district council staff member

Wayne Stack continues his monthly look at

Selwyn’s past. Anyone with suggestions

for future features can phone Wayne on

021 119 9107. This month’s feature covers the

district council’s heritage

IN TODAY’S modern world

the best way to ensure success

in projects that preserve

and celebrate local history

and heritage is through a

collaborative approach.

Failure usually occurs through

a lack of sustained enthusiasm,

financial support or a combination

of both.

In most cases it is a lack

of funds that prevent such

worthwhile projects from either

starting or reaching their full

potential. However, great things

can be achieved for communities

when all interested groups come

together fully committed to the

projects.

This was brought home to me

in a recent visit to Ireland, where

I attended a clan gathering in

County Kerry.

The biennual event was held

in the traditional small market

town of Listowel, which had been

heavily affected by the recent

economic down-turn in Ireland.

Like Selwyn, the economy of

north Kerry is reliant on agriculture,

with the main employer

in Listowel being a diary factory

owned by the multi-national

company, Kerry Group.

However, businesses in the

town and surrounding villages

are now thriving due to the collaboration

between the county

council and local groups in

promoting and celebrating the

culture and heritage of the area.

Tourism has increasingly

become a main contributor in

boosting the local economy after

the community began to focus

on projects that celebrated its

identity and history.

Several nationally-acclaimed

authors and playwrights had

lived in Listowel, so local groups

got together to host a ‘literary

week’ in the town that is now

an annual event which attracts

several thousand visitors.

Following on from this, with

the help of the county council,

a building was purchased to

establish a literary museum,

education centre and cafe in the

town square that hosts seminars,

school visits and continues to

attract visitors to the area.

The flow-on effect from this

success has led to local artists

receiving financial support

from the council to establish a

live-in gallery studio in the town

that continues to attract tourist

painters, mostly from the United

States.

Another recent successful

tourist-attracting project that has

become an annual event is the

week-long military festival that

has gained international acclaim.

What these initiatives all

have in common is that they

were started through the vision,

passion, hard work and initial

fundraising of local community

groups, backed with further financial

support from local businesses

and the county council.

Likewise, Selwyn is now

primed for boosting the same

social and economic success by

focussing on the foundations of

its identity and promoting the

culture and heritage that makes

the district unique.

Leading up to the Rolleston

150 th celebrations in 2015, the

four main characteristics of

Selwyn’s heritage foundations

were identified as agriculture,

the railways, the military and

multiculturalism.

These characteristics are to be

included in the design of the new

town centre of Rolleston.

Although financially driven

by the district council, there

has been on-going consultation

within the community to set the

vision for the project.

The district is fortunate in having

a progressive council that has

committed to financing major

infrastructure to accommodate

the rapid population increase

within the area.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Making the most of a rich history

•From page 13

This has led to the

establishment and growth

of sporting codes, such as

swimming, soccer, hockey,

basketball, cricket, softball and

athletics, through the building of

new sports complexes like Foster

and Brookside Parks in Rolleston,

the Lincoln Event Centre, and the

community events centres in Tai

Tapu and West Melton.

The large investment in these

facilities can only add to the attraction

of people wanting to live

in the district, as most of these

sports clubs could not survive

without indirect financial support

from the district council.

However, Selwyn has more to

offer than just sporting opportunities.

The dynamic of the district is

rapidly changing with the urban

sprawl from Christchurch, and

now is the time to also increase

focus on promoting and celebrating

its culture and heritage.

The district council’s portal in

promoting culture and heritage

has traditionally been through

services and programmes at the

Selwyn libraries.

The libraries continue to

provide local historical and genealogy

groups, excellent online

research services and venues to

meet at, and remains the focal

point for sourcing books on the

district’s history.

The district council has

certainly played a part in

celebrating the identity of the

district.

It has been instrumental in

celebrating multiculturalism by

providing funding and organising

the annual Selwyn Culture

Fest, while financially supporting

other small projects, such as the

Homebush Railway in Darfield

and the Selwyn Agricultural

Heritage Park at Leeston.

The district council is also

funding the installation of

permanent lighting for the main

war memorials throughout the

district in commemoration of

the upcoming World War 1

Armistice centenary next month.

These small projects and others

like them have initially come

about through the efforts of local

groups, but needed input from

the district council and some

other sponsors to bring them to

fruition.

REMEMBRANCE: The iconic

Leeston War Memorial on

High St will have permanent

up-lighting installed, while

the historic Liffey Cottage in

Lincoln has been restored

and jointly maintained by

the district council and the

Lincoln and District Historical

Society.

Another worthy project that

will need collaborative support

from council and other groups

is the proposed Citizen-Soldier

Museum and Research Centre to

be established in Rolleston.

This would see the existing

Canterbury Regimental History

Centre at Burnham Camp

transferred to a suitable venue

that would provide seven-day-aweek

access to the public, which

it currently does not have due to

security measures at the camp.

The district is the centre for

military activity in the South

Island and having the museum

in Rolleston would attract local,

national and international

visitors to the area, while

reinforcing the identity of the

district.

Museums, heritage parks,

heritage buildings, arts and

cultural events play an important

part in the development of

society.

They help to provide an

understanding of who we are,

where we have come from and

how we got here.

They also provide the

foundation for communities

to grow in understanding and

celebrate the cultural and ethnic

diversity within society that

is needed to progress into the

future.

Yet their importance is

generally not reflected in the

funding available from central

Government.

Increasingly, regional cultural

and heritage projects are reliant

on funding from local bodies,

in collaboration with sponsors

and community fundraising, to

succeed.

Without such funding, we risk

losing our local heritage taonga

and passing on opportunities to

provide attractions to the district.

damsel bug can undergo two

generations per year.

The damsel bug’s life

cycle appears to be highly

synchronised with the

Australian crop mirid, making it

a significant predator of this pest.

Damsel bugs are also known

to feed on extra floral nectaries,

a plant gland that produces a

sugar-rich liquid for beneficial

insects such as predators or

pollinators.

INTRODUCED: Pacific damsel

bugs are pale brown in colour

and have a slender 7-8mmlong

body.

Culture on display at Lincoln

A demonstration of

the contact team

sport Kabaddi, which

New Zealand culture.

It included group

Versatile Sheat takes player of year award

• By Jacob Page

SOUTHBRIDGE halfback

Cameron Sheat was the big

winner at the Ellesmere Rugby

Union’s annual awards event at

the Waihora clubrooms.

Sheat won the Westpac Cup as

senior player of the year,

Not bad for a guy who played

multiple positions in the backline

this year,

While he prefers halfback or

wing, he also spent time in the

No 10 and No 12 jerseys as the

need arose.

“Halfback and wing are my

preferred positions but I ended

up at first and second-five this

year which was different.”

The 22-year-old is currently

living in Lauder, which is 30

minutes south of Edinburgh, and

playing for a club nearby called

Melrose.

He is playing for the Melrose

Storm second XV where he

picked up man of the match during

a 41-24 win over Hamilton

two weeks ago in his debut

performance.

“I was pretty happy about that.

Starting a season off that way is

always good for your confidence

and now I hope I can keep playing

well week-in week-out.”

Sheat had hoped to force his

way into the top team but league

rules around eligibility prevented

that from being possible.

“So the main goal now is basically

win the league I’m in and

to just keep playing good rugby,”

he said.

Sheat said the timing was right

for his first rugby OE.

“A few of the Melrose boys

have come over to play for Southbridge

so I thought it would be

a good opportunity and experience

while I’m young to go over

and give it a crack.”

Sheat said he was humbled to

win Ellesmere rugby’s top individual

award.

“It’s pretty special to be honest,”

he said.

A lot of the previous players

who have won the cup are classy

players and to now have my

name on it, I’m honoured.

“With a lot of talent in the

team this year it really could

have gone to any of the lads.”

He’s unsure when he will

be back home but he still has

unfinished business on the rugby

fields of Ellesmere.

“If I’m back in New Zealand

next year then obviously making

the Ellesmere and Country

seniors are the main goals. But

I’ll just have to wait and see how

everything goes over here first.”

Waihora co-coach Joff Mooar

won personality of the year,

while Prebbleton president

Jeremy Knowler was named

volunteer of the year.

Other award recipients

were:

Waimea Combined halfback

Robert Sporke was

named under-18 player of

the year.

BOOST Speak a must see

Time is running out to book a place at Selwyn’s must see

inspirational youth event.

BOOST Speak is a free key event during Selwyn Youth Council’s

week long holiday extravaganza BOOST 2018.

BOOST 2018 will feature around a dozen events across Selwyn

between 5 and 12 October aimed at young people aged 13–18.

The opening event on Friday 5 October at the Lincoln Event Centre

will feature three speakers, Matty Lovell, Rosa Flanagan and Mayor

Sam Broughton.

Community Development Advisor Jason Flewellen says the story of

Matty Lovell will be riveting for those heading along.

“Matty has conquered a number of challenges throughout his life,

and is a great example of overcoming challenges and giving back to

the community.

“He helped in the immediate aftermath of the 2011 Christchurch

earthquake, recovered from a serious injury which left him in a

wheelchair and has built a successful business,” Mr Flewellen says.

Book your free ticket by Wednesday 3 October to hear Matty

Lovell, Rosa Flanagan and Mayor Sam Broughton speak at

selwyn.govt.nz/boost.

CultureFest 2018

charms thousands

5–12 OCTOBER / 13 EVENTS /

AGES 13–18

CultureFest 2018 is being hailed as a success, as colour, laughter and music took centre stage on

Sunday afternoon.

Over 3,500 people spent Sunday at the Lincoln Domain to celebrate diversity, taste a new culinary

delight and enjoy the entertainment on offer.

Ginny Bowden, Manager Sport Recreation and Wellbeing, says diversity was to the fore

throughout the day.

“We are really proud of the growing diversity around Selwyn, and this is the perfect way to learn

about the new cultures around Selwyn and moving into our communities.”

CultureFest 2018 is also linked to our Welcoming Plan which was launched earlier this year, aimed

at helping new arrivals into Selwyn integrate into the district.

The event allowed for newcomers to see locals, new arrivals and visitors alike to come together

and enjoy food and performances from around the world.

20 different stage performances by groups from China, Latin America, Russia, Poland, Iran and

many more on the main stage all proved popular.

“The set-up for the day allowed festival goers to enjoy a wide range of food, while relaxing with

friends and family and picking the performances they were keen to see.

“We have also had fantastic feedback from the Christchurch Multicultural Council, who were a key

partner in setting up CultureFest 2018.”

Public Places Bylaw – new rules for

commercial activities

A new Bylaw passed by the Council aims to better manage commercial activities in the district’s

public places.

The Public Places Bylaw ensures commercial activities in public places enhance the life and

attractiveness of an area by adding vibrancy and appeal, without detracting from the use of the area

by others. A key element of the Council’s involvement in commercial activities is to contribute to the

protection, promotion and maintenance of the health and safety of everyone associated with an activity.

Under the Bylaw, commercial activities such as static and mobile traders, those advertising good and

services or even busking and street performers must get a permit from the Council to trade.

The Bylaw strikes a balance against the needs of the environment and the impact such activities may

have on the general use of public areas and private properties adjacent to public areas.

For more information about getting a permit and to view the Bylaw, visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/publicplaces.

Have your say on the District Plan Review

There’s just over a week left to let the Council know what you think about the review of the current

District Plan so far.

Are we on the right track? has been the theme of the initial public consultation on a number of key

draft changes for the future District Plan, which closes at 5pm on Monday 8 October 2018. Head to

www.selwyn.govt.nz/districtplanreview to have your say.

Pirates & fairies enjoy a

fun-filled day

On September 19 the West Melton Kindergarten,

Nursery and Learning Centre’s annual ‘Talk like a Pirate

Day’ began with the arrival of pirates, big and small, one

shark and a few Tinkerbell fairies to spread some magic.

Swords and cutlasses were drawn but carefully used, so no

one was hurt. Face painting took place throughout the day,

adding to the pirate costumes.

Boats were built out of whatever was available, with

most children choosing to walk the plank, jumping off the

end onto a large mat, at the same time watching out for the

sharks that may have been circling! Oars were plied and a

watchful careful eye kept out for Captain Hook.

Pirates went fishing with magnets and caught many

coloured fish.

There was treasure to be found and that meant treasure

maps. A wide variety were drawn, always with that magical

X that marks the spot! Many forays were made into the

playground looking for the right spot. Necklaces and

treasure were found in sand trays and discovered in gloop.

Eventually it was time to see if some real treasure could

be found. Gold glittered in the sandpit, under the bushes

and in the book corner. The very excited children went

exploring, all coming back with a glittering Crunchie Bar

to eat.

A fun day was had by

everyone and at the

end of it all some very

tired pirates and fairies

made their way home.

West Melton Primary School

proud of its diverse achievers

West Melton Primary School was thrilled

with the success of students, Micah, Celia

and Eleanor, Runners Up in the Story Telling

section at the recent Canterbury Grow

Waitaha DigiAwards, and acknowledged

the guidance of teacher Carolyn Sutherland,

who helped the learners reach their dream.

Held at St Margaret’s College in

Christchurch, the Canterbury DigiAwards

was an opportunity for students from

around the region to showcase their digital

skills, creativity and innovation.

The school’s Mānuka learners have been

finding out about the effects of litter on the

environment. The group have made posters,

which they are displaying around the school

and community to help educate people

about the importance of not littering.

Other learners created iMovie videos,

which they shared with their fellow students

to encourage them to not drop litter, to pick

up litter and to have a litter-free lunch box.

One group is going to Publica to share

their learning and put forward a proposal

for a gaming app that would encourage

people to reduce litter.

West Melton School participated at the

Christchurch Cultural Festival, which

was held at Horncastle Arena on Friday,

September 7, with the Kapa Haka group

performing in front of a huge crowd.

The school extends a special ‘thank you’

to Kapa Haka tutors Whaea Latoya and

Whaea Biancha, and Ms Sutherland, Mrs

van der Zwet, and Miss Cull for their mahi

each week.

Motoring

Tackle off-road

tracks in Kia Sorento

• By Ross Kiddie

I OFFERED to take some

photos for the Selwyn

Times.

One of them meant getting

down onto the rocks

below the Rakaia Gorge

bridge. I knew if I had a

four-wheel-drive vehicle

I could do it and get the

shots I needed.

Fortuitously, the evaluation

car I was driving

that weekend was fourwheel-drive

capable – Kia’s

upgraded Sorento sport

utility vehicle – and it easily

manoeuvered the slippery

access slope and provided a

comfortable ride over

the uneven surface of the

riverbank.

That is one of the reasons

today’s sport utility vehicles

are so popular, they are

adaptable, and while they

may not be a total crosscountry

charger they do

provide practicality when

sealed roads run out. Add

to that its seven-seat capability

and it’s easy to see

why the Sorento is one of

the front-runners in the

large SUV market.

As mentioned, it has

just undergone a bit of

a facelift. Major changes

include new frontal

treatment – bumpers,

lights, grille and wheels.

On-board, there’s a bit

more kit including new display

graphics.

Most importantly, the

new Sorento gets an engineering

upgrade in the

form of an eight-speed

automatic transmission.

It is a beauty which offers

the benefits of improving

fuel economy and lowering

emission discharge. The

driveline is also smoother,

and with the short gaps

between ratios the whole

drive transition process is

more fluid.

In design terms, the

Sorento is the SUV we have

come to know and support.

It is a true seven-seater

and if you don’t need the

rear row of seats upright,

the rear wagon section is

cavernous, Kia claiming a

1662-litre load space.

The Sorento is also

affordable. At the time of

evaluation, a Fieldays’ special

had the EX model, as

tested, sitting at $48,990. It

normally lists at $59,990.

There are also Premium

and Limited models which

will stretch to $73,990,

bearing in mind that if you

are only interested in petrol

power you’ll have to indent

order the 3.3-litre V6.

KIA SORENTO: Family-friendly sport utility vehicle.

However, the EX model

comes with a 2.2-litre turbocharged

diesel engine,

and that would most

certainly be my pick. The

engine is the R-series

unit which is shared with

Hyundai. Even though it

isn’t new, it has been constantly

been refined to the

point where it can well be

regarded as one of the automotive

world’s great power

plants. It is strong, smooth

and delivers with remarkable

fuel usage figures.

• Price – Kia Sorento

EX, $59,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4800mm;

width, 1890mm;

height, 1690mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2199cc, 147kW,

441Nm, eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.6sec

• Fuel usage –

6.5l/100km

Kia rates the 2199cc unit

with a 6.5-litre per 100km

(44mpg) combined cycle

rating, which fits well with

the trip computer’s readout.

It was constantly sitting at

8l/100km (35mpg) along

with a 5l/100km (56mpg)

instantaneous figure at

100km/h, the rev counter

pointing to a lazy 1500rpm

at that speed.

The engine is also listed

with power and torque figures

of 147kW and 441Nm

respectively. Both are realised

low in the rev band at

3800rpm and 1750rpm-

2750rpm respectively, and

with its delivery through the

new eight-speeder there is a

solid flow of energy, all done

in a whisper quiet manner.

If you also take into

account the areas where

maximum torque is produced,

the Sorento in this

form is quite swift, it will

lunge to 100km/h from a

standstill in 8.6sec.

Acceleration aside, the

engine will also work away

tirelessly at city or urban

speeds, hauling through

the transmission with economical

shift patterns and

positive response to throttle

request.

On those great cruising

roads of the Canterbury

high country, the Sorento

moves with quiet motion

and handles well.

With the option of four

drive modes – comfort,

eco, sport and individual –

the driver can use the best

setting for each driving

experience. On the twists

and turns leading in and

out of the Rakaia Gorge I

used the sport mode, and it

deliberately firms the steering

and provides a more

involving feel along with

greater engine urgency.

For a vehicle that

weighs in quite tubby at

around 1900kg, the big

Sorento steers beautifully

and stays well balanced,

there is a positive firming

within the suspension,

but it rides without harshness.

Grit had been spread

on part of the road as a

way of keeping ice at bay

mid-winter, where grip

was low, drive being distributed

to the rear could

be noticed, and that adds a

secure feel.

One of my work colleagues

has just bought

a new Kia, and while it

wasn’t an SUV, it is a car

which stands out with its

quality of build and modern

engineering practices.

That could be said of

Kia’s entire range, the big

Korean-conglomerate

is producing some fine

vehicles and, as in the

Sorento’s case, the company

has adopted an extensive

development process, each

model is constantly being

refined and those benefits

are being passed down to

consumers.

continuing EducAtion

FREE digital media course,

with NCEA built in

For those looking for a role that combines

artistic and digital talents, then this

outstanding, FREE, entry level course has

just been announced by local Training

Provider Trainme, for those wishing

to pursue animation, graphic design,

photography or digital media as a career.

The course covers introduction to

multi-media techniques such as video

production, drawing, animation and

photography. Students will create their own

design concepts and collaborate with other

students on creative projects.

This course is FREE to students aged 16

to 19 and they only have to have NCEA 1

to join. Students without NCEA 1 can be

admitted, if they show artistic or digital

aptitude.

“Many feel that school is not working for

them or they left without qualifications,”

says Rhys Pollard, Marketer with tertiary

educator Trainme. “While not

necessarily academically minded,

they do have artistic talents

and are very much into digital

technology.”

“This FREE six-month Trainme

course, combines these in a very

hands-on, practical way, giving

them an intro into various digital

media. This way, they can decide

which direction to pursue as their

career focus.”

“As an NZQA approved

programme, NCEA credits are

built in, so if they apply themselves,

they can graduate with a New Zealand

Certificate in Arts and Design Level 2, as

well as gaining credits towards NCEA level

1 or 2.” Says Pollard.

“NCEA results will depend on how many

credits they bring to the course to start

with, but as it’s a fun subject, it won’t feel

like school at all.”

Successful Graduates from this

programme could pathway into higher study

in media arts, which could include graphic

design, video production, photography or

one of the many emerging digital-based

careers. Places are limited, so students are

encouraged to apply as soon as they can.

Enrolments are Now Open, for

February 2019. Contact Trainme at their

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Kit aims to teach children

about sustainable gardening

The Bio-Protection Research Centre

(BPRC) and Biological Husbandry Unit

(BHU), both at Lincoln University, in

conjunction with Kings Seeds, have

developed a gardening kit for children

called How Does Your Garden Grow.

The kit aims to extend the primary school

curriculum by teaching children some of

the less understood essentials of sustainable

gardening and encouraging them to use

“nature’s services” in place of pesticides.

“As far as the services of nature are

concerned, ladybirds eat pests, earthworms

make soil, bacteria and fungi break down

leaf material, and these are all available for

us to use,” said Bio-Protection Research

Centre Professor Steve Wratten.

“Everybody knows about the role of

buzzy bees in pollinating crops and most

people know that ladybirds eat pests such

as aphids. But when it comes to what

earthworms contribute to your garden’s

health, most gardeners’ knowledge is rather

thin.”

Professor Wratten said the kit was

an inexpensive way for gardeners and

schoolchildren to be able to answer some

of these questions in a hands-on way.

“It will help them to work out the acidity

of soil, which needs to be slightly acidic for

potatoes and slightly alkaline for brassica

vegetables, and teach them how to attract

bees to crops and get ladybirds to eat pests.”

The kit contains at least 12 techniques for

children to experiment with, as well as a

booklet explaining how to use them, and a

website offering more details.

Items include seed packets, nitrate sticks,

pH strips, petri dishes and a magnifying

glass. The dishes show how active soil

bacteria and fungi are in the garden.

The project is based on the wider research

activities carried out at the BPRC, which

involve finding natural ways of protecting

New Zealand’s ecosystems.

“We do a lot of work on farmland,

trying to understand and improve nature’s

services. It’s not sustainable to continue

using all those chemical inputs, so we

need to find other ways of operating.

Bad farming destroys nature’s services,”

Professor Wratten said.

The kits will be sold to primary school teachers, with BPRC staff

visiting schools to guide the associated gardening projects.

Plenty to enjoy at

popular A&P show

‘Where Town Meets Country’ is the theme of this year’s

Ellesmere A&P Show, being held on Saturday, October 13.

As usual, this popular show will

feature a full day of events and activities,

including many entertaining highlights.

Nearly 100 craft sites will feature an array

of stalls selling a wide selection of goods

ranging from handmade crafts to plants,

clothing, food and outdoor furniture,

with local organisations fundraising.

The trade sites will include a wide

variety of products and services, from

banks to real estate, and fertiliser to power

distribution companies.

The latest in agricultural equipment

and technology will be displayed on

the machinery sites, as well as new car

sales, irrigation companies, mowers

and fertiliser spreading, plus a large

selection of vintage cars and agricultural

machinery.

This year marks the 100th anniversary

of John Deere Tractors, and the Ellesmere

A&P Association and Drummond and

Etheridge are celebrating this significant

milestone by inviting John Deere owners

to bring their tractor to the show, whether

it is old or new, to join the other machines

on display.

Cooking, homemade beverages,

handcrafts, photography and flowers

will be competing for recognition in

the produce shed, while for the school

children there will be sections in

technology, art, flowers and cooking for

the local primary and high schools.

In keeping with the show’s theme, the

Wearable Arts in the Farmlands marquee

will showcase the way spectacular

ensembles can capture the essence of

‘Where Town Meets Country’. This year

the Wearable Arts parade and competition

will be staged in the feature tent, with two

parades being held at 11am and 1.30pm.

Sure to be a crowd pleaser, the Selwyn’s

Got Talent local talent quest is in its

second year at the show and is drawing

entries from some highly talented acts.

It will take place from 9am to midday on

the Osborne Stage.

Always one of the show’s most popular

events, this year’s wood chopping

competition will see approximately 30

male and female choppers in action with

their axes.

Children will be kept entertained

throughout the day with an array of

sideshow attractions including the Ferris

wheel, thrill rides, merry-go-rounds and

bouncy castles, while a food court and

bar on the showgrounds will provide

refreshments for everyone.

The show is being held

at the Ellesmere A&P

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Bringing birdsong

back to campus

Lincoln University is taking steps towards becoming one of the first predator-free campuses in the

country and encouraging an abundance of native wildlife species to make Lincoln their home.

Ecology tutor Mike Bowie has

been instrumental in developing a

comprehensive three-to-five year strategy

that aims to enhance and protect native

biodiversity on campus.

“At Lincoln, we teach pest management

and conservation, environmental

management and landscape architecture,

so we have the expertise available to make

this goal a reality,” Mr Bowie said.

“Nature contributes to wellbeing and

leads to a decrease in stress hormones.

We need to get people loving nature and

not being scared of it. Seeing more of it

is important and if we know what we’re

looking at, we can understand it better and

protect it.”

Mr Bowie said there had been a reduction

in birdlife on campus over the years as trees

were cleared to make way for buildings.

“It would be wonderful to return the

dawn chorus to campus.”

One part of the biodiversity strategy

involves a second-year ecology class

creating an inventory of native plant and

animal species present on the Lincoln

campus.

“This involves putting out monitoring

devices, including weta motels and wooden

discs,” Mr Bowie said.

“We’ve put 30 weta motels and 30

wooden discs at various areas around

campus, which is a really good way of nondestructively

sampling species.”

The motels are wooden structures with

small cavities that weta can crawl into, and

the wooden discs offer insects shelter from

predators, as they can hide underneath

them. The biodiversity strategy also involves

monitoring pest mammals, including mice,

rats, hedgehogs and possums, and creating

traps to reduce predation.

“This is the first step towards a pest-free

Lincoln University,” Mr Bowie said.

“We also plan to plant natives for birds,

lizards and insects, using ecological

principles. This means planting the kinds of

natives that will attract particular species.

Native trees are important habitat as they

can provide vegetation, nectar and fruit for

the wildlife to eat.”

Mr Bowie also mentioned the idea of

planting native riparian species along

drains, instead of using herbicides.

“Planting waterways with native species

can create habitat and provide shade for

wildlife.”

Mr Bowie would be keen to see the

campus follow the example of the staff at

the Lincoln University Demonstration

Dairy Farm, who have planted natives

along its drain to shade it.

“This reduces algae through lowering

water temperatures, making it more suitable

for aquatic wildlife, while providing habitat

for birds and invertebrates.”

Mr Bowie discussed the strategy as part

of a seminar series organised by the Lincoln

University Sustainability Action Group for

our Environment (SAGE).

SAGE is responsible for ensuring that

the university promotes and achieves

ecologically, socially and economically

sustainable development.

Gardening

Pot up your petunias

• By Henri Ham

OCTOBER MARKS the middle

of spring – the most popular

planting season of the year. Many

of you will have your summer

vege crops of lettuce, peas,

courgettes and tomatoes top of

mind right now. And rightly so.

But have you thought about

which flowers you’d like to pot up

in your garden this summer?

For a colourful injection of

beauty into your pot plants

and garden you can’t overlook

petunias. Petunias have a cheerful

flower that can bloom nonstop

from summer through to late

autumn.

They are also incredibly diverse.

Petunias come in an amazing

range of colours, shapes and sizes.

They can have a single or double

layer of petals, being ruffled or

smooth. Many have a gramophone

shaped flower. Petunias are

ideal for bedding, borders, pot

plants and hanging baskets.

Larger petunias (referred to as

grandiflora) can grow up to 80cm

across (if you really let them go)

and have huge flowers spanning

15cm. Their impressive size make

a real statement but with this

comes more responsibility. The

large flower means if it is planted

in an exposed place, it will get

hammered from wind and rain.

And you need to deadhead them

to encourage more flowering.

The medium-sized varieties will

grow between 25 – 50 cm high,

with flowers that span 5cm. Flowers

on the smallest petunia plants

only span 2cm. They are great for

path borders and cutting gardens

too.

I recommend mixing a few of

the smaller varieties and combining

them in pots together. Petunia

mini picobella and duo red and

white are early bloomers suited to

pots. And they don’t need much

deadheading.

I recommend two new varieties

– duo burgundy and double mix.

So get in now to plant something

truly unique in your gardens this

summer.

BLOOM: Duo burgundy is a new variety of petunia, it has strong

colour.

Planting-wise petunias are

pretty easy. They like a sunny

well-drained, fertile spot. Plant

seedlings between 15 to 40cm

apart depending on their size.

Individual guides come on their

labels. If your planting plot is partially

shaded, plant them slightly

closer together.

Watch out for snails and aphids

on petunias. If they stop flowering

sooner than you expected aphids

could well be the cause. Petunias

can also catch diseases. One

method to reduce your chances

of disease is to avoid overhead

watering.

In about six to eight weeks your

pots should start to look perky

with petunia colour.

Trying turnips and

cooking kohlrabi

• By Henri Ham

VERSATILE:

Turnips can

be used

in cooking

much like a

potato.

ARE YOU keen to step it up in

your vege garden this year and try

something new? Then let’s talk

about turnips.

Turnips are basically so old

I’m re-trending them as new. But

they’re one of those vegetables

that may not be the first to spring

to mind when plotting your

garden. So this month I’m reintroducing

turnips.

Turnips actually come in many

different varieties. Purple top,

orange, amber and baby globe.

There is also a stock white turnip.

It produces a smooth, semi- globe

shaped root with a tangy taste.

It’s great for eating raw in salads

or lightly steamed with plenty of

butter and salt.

Turnips can be used in cooking

much like you would use a

potato. I like to cube turnips up

and throw them into stews. Or julienne

them (cut into raw matchsticks)

and use them as a small

side salad on my dinner plate.

Now that you’re reacquainted

with turnips, let me introduce you

to another member of the brassica

family - kohlrabi.

This unusual-looking vegetable

combines several features of its

relatives. It resembles a swollen

broccoli stem but grows in the

shape of a turnip, sitting just above

the ground. And like cabbage, its

skin can be purple, red or green.

Given its resemblance to other

members of the brassica family,

it probably won’t surprise you to

learn kohlrabi translates in German

to ‘cabbage-turnip’.

Its flesh is always pale green

and crisp like an apple but it tastes

more like a cabbage, although

sweeter and milder. And it also

grows large edible leaves.

Kohlrabi confuses many as

it looks like it should be a root

vegetable, however, it hovers just

above the ground. Thanks to the

way it grows and the fact it has

multiple arms (leaf stems) protruding

from it, it’s often referred

to as an alien vegetable.

But be it alien or broccoli revolution,

kohlrabi is certainly worth

growing and eating. Try it boiled,

roasted, mashed or raw. Just like

turnips, it is a great addition

grated into coleslaw or chopped

into sticks for salad.

And no part of the plant is

wasted with kohlrabi. The leaves

can be sautéed or used as a tasty

alternative to cabbage, kale, silverbeet

or spinach.

Growing both turnips and

kohlrabi is pretty straight forward.

They both like fertile soil, in a

sunny well drained spot. Vege

plots always benefit from a good

digging over – and mix in mulch

and some compost.

Plant your turnips 20cm apart

and harvest when they are 5-15cm

in diameter (they will sit above

the ground slightly). This will

happen 30-60 days after planting

your seedlings.

Plant kohlrabi 25cm apart and

harvest it when the swollen stem

is about 8cm in diameter. This will

take 45 – 60 days. They can taste a

bit woody if left too long.

Spring

Fling

ON THIS

WEEKEND!

Sunday 7th October

Broadfield Gardens

11am-4pm

FRESH: Parsley

comes in two

forms – curly

leaved or flat

leaved – they

can be grown

together.

Get herbs in the ground now

ALL THE promise of

spring is out there in the

herb garden.

It’s a good idea to plant

herbs close to the kitchen

— the further away they

are, the less likely you are

to pick them, especially in

rainy weather.

Most of the cooking

herbs like a place in the

sun, though mint will

grow in a damp shady

spot. If you don’t have

much space, stick to those

herbs you know you’ll use

in cooking.

Consider growing them

in pots, or plant herbs in

the flower garden — most

are quite decorative.

Fresh coriander is an

important ingredient in

many Thai and Indian

dishes and now’s theww

time for planting the seeds

of this annual herb.

Coriander plants are

tap-rooted and don’t

transplant well, so sow

seeds where you want the

plants to grow and thin

out when necessary.

The seeds are slow to

germinate, so don’t give up

on them too soon.

Some varieties of chives

die down in the winter,

while others stay green the

whole year through.

If rust is a problem,

cut the clumps back and

wait for fresh rust-free

growth. If that doesn’t work,

it may be best to plant some

new bulbs in a different

spot.

Clumps need to be

divided and replanted

every few years in any

case or the chives get

overcrowded and loose

their vigour.

Garlic chives have a

stronger flavour than

regular chives and the

flowers are white and

starry rather than pompom

shaped.

The plants grow more

slowly and the leaves

stand up to cooking a bit

better.

Parsley comes in two

forms – the curly-leaved

variety and flat or broadleaved

parsley, often

known as Italian parsley.

The latter is currently

more trendy but at a pinch

you can usually substitute

one for the other.

COLOURFUL:

Chives have a

pretty flower

but they are

grown for their

versatility in the

kitchen.

Intelligro is excited to again be the

principal sponsor for the annual Spring

Fling. We are getting geared up for the

event, and have our fingers crossed for a

warm and sunny day!

The day will offer plenty for everyone, with arts &

crafts stalls, garden tours, demonstrations, live music,

IT’S TIME FOR THE SPRING FLING

Spring Fling Poster.indd 1

19/07/18 3:07 PM

For the eighth year running, people will again flock to the

Ellesmere Spring Fling.

The Ellesmere Spring Fling is the crème de crème of fetes.

Held in the most beautiful garden – David Hobbs’ award

winning Broadfield Garden – this is no ordinary affair.

“The Spring Fling is a wonderful day out,” says Janice

Burnett who is Chairperson of Community Care Lincoln.

Whether you are a keen gardener wanting inspiration,

looking for quality items to enjoy or tuck away for Christmas

or simply keen on having a good time, this event promises

plenty.

Wander through the diverse garden and around the superb

gathering of stalls selling everything from fresh produce,

food, drink (wine and beer will be available), artisan arts

and crafts to plants. Find a place to relax under the shade

of a tree or bask in the sun listening to live music while

partaking of a snack, lunch, Devonshire tea or beverage.

David Hobbs, whose garden fills ten acres and is of such

a high standard that it has both national and international

recognition, will once again offer garden tours. You will

have the chance to learn about the plants growing at

Broadfield Gardens while garnering some green thumb

tips from the expert himself.

With the focus this year on gardening, you will be inspired

by the marvellous gardens David has created and have the

chance to learn more about gardening with demonstrations

presented by horticultural experts.

“We’re so happy to once again have Intelligro as our

principal sponsor,” says Vanessa Thompson, organiser of

the Spring Fling.

She advises that the Intelligro team will be there to help

with any queries and give people advice about what they

should be doing in their gardens at this time of year.

As sole fundraiser for Community Care Lincoln, the

Ellesmere Spring Fling is fully a volunteer affair.

Special thanks can also be given to the amazing support

of Ballantynes, Lincoln New World, Paper Plus Hornby,

Academy Signs, Susan and Tony Faulks, the Selwyn District

Council and Pub Charity Limited.

“We’re really grateful for the on-going community assistance

we receive and the work done by Lincoln Rotary members

who help in so many ways on the day,” adds Janice.

As usual, Future Leaders from Lincoln University, local

exercise and walking groups and Community Care’s

own staff, board members and volunteers will all be there

helping make it a fun day for all.

The Ellesmere Spring Fling is a country garden experience

not to be topped. It will be held this year, on Sunday, 7th

October from 11am until 4pm at Broadfield Garden, 250

Selwyn Road, Broadfield. Tickets can be purchased prior

to the event for $15 from Ballantynes, New World Lincoln,

Paper Plus Hornby and at Community Care. Gate sales will

be available on the day at $20 for an adult with children

free.

Lifestyle, Landbank or Develop

92 Manse Road Leeston

Sadly, for our owners, a change in plans dictates that their

forever home MUST go.

This seriously impressive Boyd Chamberlain home,

nestled on 2.7Ha of sub-dividable land, offers a fantastic

opportunity for the ‘lifestyler’, equestrian lover, entertainer

or the savvy landbank/developer.

The open plan kitchen is sleek and sophisticated, a marble

bench top overlooking the dining area with great flow to the

outdoor space forms the hub of the home – entertaining is a

pleasure.

Cathedral ceiling and feature log burner set in schist

surrounds form a cosy space in the main living room.

Comfort year round with zoned underfloor heating,

the extras and functionality of the home are simply too

extensive to list – this is a must see.

Beyond the landscaped grounds and gardens lies real

potential. Zoned Living 2, with the option to further

subdivide, reap the rewards now or enjoy the future proof

value of your investment underpinned by the development

potential.

A home and opportunity that must be seen to be appreciated

– come fall in love with your new home, this must be sold.

Deadline Sale – offers presented 4pm Thursday 25th

pantry in the main wing and 3 fully-tiled bathrooms
