Drink

driving

message

gets

through

• By Louis Day

POLICE HAVE noticed a

significant improvement in the

number of motorists drinking and

driving in the district over the last

week.

Around 100 drivers in Lincoln

and Leeston were pulled over during

mobile patrols at the weekend

and only one was over the limit.

The female driver, in her early

20s, recorded 600mcg/L on Saturday

night in Lincoln, 350mcg/L

over the limit of 250mcg/L.

There have been 124 alcoholrelated

car crashes in the district

since 2013, 27 of them being either

serious or fatal.

Three drink drivers were stopped

by police last week and four were

stopped the week before that.

Sergeant Phil Bayne said there

was still a lot of work to be done in

spite of a clear improvement.

“It’s very difficult to tell over one

weekend whether things have actually

improved, for all we know it

could increase next weekend.”

Sergeant Bayne said police would

continue to have a high visibility

throughout the community to

ensure drink driving remained

low.

CHECKPOINTS, random stopping,

publicity and word of mouth.

It looks like all have combined to work

the oracle when it comes to the police

drink driving campaign in the district, or

more specifically, in Lincoln and Leeston.

As we report on page 1 today, the number of motorists

caught over the limit dropped off significantly at the weekend.

A number of motorists were being picked up in that 6-9pm

time frame.

But the only one caught at the weekend was a woman in her

early 20s and that was very late at night.

She was well over the limit, so it was a good job she was

taken off the road.

The moral of the story: Don’t slip back into bad habits.

Water stoush brewing

between council and Government

• By Emily O’Connell

DISTRICT councillors Craig

Watson and Grant Miller

say Selwyn is well-placed to

continue maintaining its own

water.

Their comments come as

the Government reviews how

drinking water,

wastewater and

stormwater services

are being managed.

Water New

Zealand is lobbying

the Government

Craig

Watson

Grant

Miller

and councils to

support a more centralised

system.

The issue was

discussed at the

district council’s

audit and risk subcommittee

meeting

last week.

Cr Watson said

there is a “shared

concern around

the lack of real

pathways and decision-making

by the Government at this

stage.”

“We’re looking for definitive

measures that we need to meet

but also local solutions,” he said.

DECISION: A Government review into how water services are

managed could see a more centralised system put in place

but district councillors say Selwyn should continue to maintain

its own water. ​

Department of Internal

Affairs three waters review

director Richard Ward said it’s

expected there will be greater

certainty and clarity within the

next month.

“Once Cabinet has considered

the report on recommendations

and options,” he said.

Cr Miller said there has been

an “in-depth” study of Selwyn

water standards and believes

the district council is supplying

“very high-quality water” to

residents at a low cost.

“It doesn’t take a rocket

scientist to work out that if you

become aggregated or part of a

larger scheme, potentially the

cost to ratepayers for supply of

water could be increased,” Cr

Miller said.

Mr Ward said research “indicates

many smaller councils

face acute costs upgrading infrastructure”

to meet standards.

He said cost is an important

factor and will be a “major

consideration in future policy

work on how to deliver a strong

and sustainable three waters

system.”

Cr Miller said the district

council is open to looking at

suggestions to make its water

supply better and safer, but

also wants what is best for

ratepayers.

He said its next step is

to discuss the issue with

neighbouring councillors,

such as the Ashburton and

Waimakariri district councils.

“They’re a similar size and

have similar size infrastructure.

Whether there are any synergies

or any benefits from looking at

some sort of amalgamation or

shared services,” Cr Miller said.

Mr Ward said the

Government will make the final

decision on the management of

water, and the time frame will

depend on the expected Cabinet

decision over the next month.

“But it is likely this will

include a number of high-level

options identified for further

work,” Mr Ward said

These will then be further

discussed with councils and

worked on through 2019.”

Last minute touches for fashion show

• By Emily O’Connell

ABOUT 60 designers from

around the country will

showcase their hard work in a

wearable arts competition in

Lincoln on Saturday.

The Art Couture NZ competition,

which is in its second year

running, will take place at the

Lincoln Event

Centre.

Rolleston

designer

Tracey

Hollands has

been working

on two outfits,

Pocket Full

Kim Strange

Love the

Choice

Of Posies and

Touchy Feely,

for months and says she’s “really

excited” for the show.

Mrs Hollands isn’t new to the

world of fashion, she owned the

Cottage Costume Hire in Weedons

for a decade, selling it last year.

She’s also the head of the

wardrobe team for CentreStage

Rolleston and she’s about to finish

her diploma in floristry.

Her Touchy Feely design is

entered in the Sow’s Ear category

of the competition, where

designers are given the same

materials to use.

“I really like it because it

means you all start from the

same place and you all have the

same stuff and you all use your

own creativity to make something

completely different,” Mrs

Hollands said.

Co-organiser Kim Strange

said this year’s competition will

be “that much more of a step-up

from last year.”

“We’re all really excited about

it. The amount of tickets sold is

huge so it’s been nice to see it’s

providing an event that’s met a

need,” Mrs Strange said.

She said Saturday’s show is

different to last year’s as it will

have a raised stage, more lighting

and sound and gold and

silver tables.

Those set to hit the catwalk

range in age from six-years-old

to models in their 70s.

Mrs Strange said there will be

a range of food and drinks for

sale at the event including wine

from company 27 Seconds. 27

Mine noise prompts concerns

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NOISE AT night from a large

mine in Coalgate has prompted

concerns from nearby residents.

A Malvern Community

Board report said that residents

have noticed the Canterbury

Coal Mine, located on Bush

Gully Rd, is

getting louder

at night.

But in the

past year the

district council

has only

received three

Richard Tacon

noise complaints,

with

all complaints

investigated and no breaches

identified.

Whitecliffs Township Committee

chairwoman Jodie

Thompson said a lot of residents

have expressed concern and it

has been contacting noise control

at the district council.

She said she doesn’t mind

the noise in the day but at

night time she “hears crashing

sounds.”

“It disturbs the peaceful

atmosphere of the place which

is why most people move out

here,” she said.

The maximum noise level at

NOISE: Residents living near the Canterbury Coal Mine are

concerned they are hearing more noise at night. ​

night is 70dBa.

Bathurst Resources chief

executive Richard Tacon said an

assessment of likely operational

noise effects was completed

prior to night operations starting

last year.

“Now we are aware of community

concern and locality,

we have requested further operational

noise monitoring be

completed by an external noise

consultant,” he said.

But Coalgate chief fire officer

Phillip Shaw said he lives close

to the mine and doesn’t hear it.

Glentunnel Township Committee

chairman Reg Anderson

said while it hasn’t affected him,

it has affected other people in

the township and needs to be

addressed.

One resident cannot sleep at

night as a result of the noise, he

said.

It comes as a resource application

from Bathurst Resources to

increase its heavy vehicle movements

is currently on hold.

It lodged a resource consent

to increase its coal truck and

trailer movements to an average

of 225 per week, with a maximum

of up to 320 movements

in January.

District council planning

manager Jesse Burgess said it is

currently discussing the scope

of the application with Bathurst

representatives.

Bathurst Resources Ltd

domestic operations general

manager Damian Spring said

the application is a result of

increased demand in the Canterbury

region.

It is required to meet projected

sales demand for coal,

including to supply to milk

processing sites owned and operated

by Fonterra and Synlait.

Mr Spring said it has engaged

with affected parties on Bush

Gully Rd and Malvern Hills Rd.

“The feedback we have got

is from neutral to happy with

what we are proposing,” he said.

•Residents are encouraged

to contact the company

to discuss the noise from

Video on Kiwi Spitfire ace

LEESTON’S Alastair Peart

was in his late teens when

he realised his father was a

bit more than just a Spitfire

pilot who served in

World War 2.

His father was

Alan McGregor

Peart. A New Zealand

ace pilot known

for his incredible

battles and skills in

the sky and recipient

of the Distinguished

Flying Cross.

He died on September 5,

aged 96.

Flight Lieutenant

Alastair

Peart

Peart’s first battle against

incredible odds was early

in the war when he faced

12 German fighters by

himself. The second

was in Burma, 1944

when he battled 20

Japanese fighters for

40min.

When Mr Peart

later served as

a Special Air Service

soldier he gained a

“full appreciation” of

what his father did.

“It really dawned on me

what dad had been through

and it is still beyond my

imagination,” he said.

Drink driving

message

gets through

•From page 1

Lincoln Club president Lynn

Townsend said he had noticed

a vast improvement since police

spoke to patrons at The Famous

Grouse Hotel last week. The club

operates the hotel.

Mr Townsend said he had also

noticed an increase in the demand

for the hotel’s two courtesy vans.

Senior Constable Andy Williamson

received a loud round of

applause recently after warning

patrons of the dangers of drink

driving.

“This hotel and others in

the district will continue to be

targeted by police. Police don’t

want to apprehend and prosecute

drunk drivers. We would rather

prevent them from driving. However,

we will do whatever we can

to prevent unnecessary death and

trauma on our roads. We make no

apology for this.”

•From page 1

Miss Bell underwent six

months of chemotherapy and

radiation treatment before being

given a clean bill of health.

“That’s had an impact on who

I am,” she said.

Miss Bell says it was a “shock”

losing her long hair and something

her pupils also had to get

used to.

A learn to skate session last

year saw the then 37-year-old

take her first ride in the ambulance

after she fell and broke her

back.

“I had watched lots of people

hit the ground and get back up

. . . I was finding it really hard

to breathe and I started getting

numbness in my hands and the

pain wasn’t going,” she said.

Miss Bell had “very limited”

movement for six weeks and

had to take a term-and-a-half

off teaching to recover from the

accident.

It was a “bit of a blow” for

Miss Bell, who had recently

completed two half marathons

Leeston teen ready

to tackle issues in

Youth Parliament

LEESTON’S Katelyn

Twiss has been selected

as Selwyn’s Youth MP for

next year.

The 16-year-old was

chosen from seven finalists

by a panel including

Selwyn MP Amy Adams,

Mayor Sam Broughton

and district councillor

Craig Watson.

The finalists had to give

a 5min presentation on

local and national issues

and then answer questions

from the judges.

Ms Adams said she

is looking forward to

working with Katelyn

during her term as a Youth

MP, which runs from

March 1 until August 31.

“Katelyn will be

representing Selwyn at

the Youth Parliament in

Wellington on July 16 and

17, and I am sure she will

do a fantastic job,” she

said.

Ms Adams praised all of

the finalists for having the

courage to put themselves

forward and present their

opinions to the panel.

“I was thoroughly

impressed by the

passion and knowledge

which all of the finalists

demonstrated in their

presentations,” she said.

“These are all young

people who are motivated

to make a difference in

their communities and I

commend them for their

efforts.”

Katelyn, who is a

year 12 student at

Ellesmere College, said

she was very excited to

have been chosen and was

looking forward to the

experience.

She is already active

in the community as a

member of the Selwyn

Youth Council and

is a national leader

for Students Against

Dangerous Driving.

Greater demand on public facilities

Weedons

Residents’

Association

secretary

Gary Doyle

writes about

the district’s

population

increase and

what it means for residents

Growth in the Selwyn District

is proceeding at a rate which

prior to the 2010 earthquake

would have been thought to be

the stuff of an over-imaginative

mind.

While the influx of all these

people has helped to create an atmosphere

of prosperity with the

ability to provide local employment

it does have a cost.

To the majority of us the first

easily seen downside is the massive

jump in rates.

More people means a greater

demand for more public facilities,

these in turn drive a

demand for high maintenance

costs.

So which is better, a lower population

with fewer requirements

and fewer job opportunities for

the young and lower running

costs or a larger population with

higher costs but better facilities

and job opportunities.

PLANNING: Weedons Residents’ Association secretary Gary

Doyle says small towns which were planned for the district

changed following the September 4, 2010, earthquake. ​

There is no easy solution, to

make a thriving community you

need people, this drives the need

for providing the recreational/

education/employment opportunities

for them.

Currently the District Plan is

coming under the microscope

again, and this needs to be carefully

worked through to try and

arrive at a solution for today and

for the future.

In the past plans had been

drawn up to do this, however,

the unforeseen happened, earthquakes.

The results are that small

townships that had been planned

for, with easily managed populations

have been put under unforeseen

pressures.

Past plans with a very long

term plan to gradually increase

the facilities were overtaken in

a virtual blink of an eye. Now

is the time to down with a far

better grasp of what is going to

be required for the future and do

the planning.

However, there is a drawback,

the massive increase in population

has placed as I said earlier a

strain on resources.

This can be overcome very

quickly with huge increases in

rates, a quick fix some would say,

but for many on fixed incomes

the financial burden may just be

too much.

Any community to be

successful needs a good crosssection

of age groups, and some

of proposed increases could well

cause considerable hardship for

the elderly. To be fair, the council

is going to be damned if they do

and damned if they don’t.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Justine Holmes responds

to an article on the

Gerald St pedestrian

crossing

I see the district council is

going to potentially review

the lighting for the pedestrian

crossing on Gerald St outside

the Famous Grouse Hotel in

Lincoln.

What also needs to be

urgently reviewed is the street

car parking directly next to the

crossing. The Famous Grouse

courtesy van is usually parked

right next to the crossing

(west side) making it virtually

impossible for motorists

travelling along Gerald St

from west to east to see anyone

standing at the crossing.

It is especially bad for kids

coming home from school – I

see kids all the time having to

basically edge themselves out

into the middle of the road past

the van in order for motorists to

see them. Not good.

Selwyn MP Amy Adam

writes about Selwyn’s

growing diversity and how

its changed over time

I ATTENDED CultureFest,

along with my colleague

Melissa Lee, the National

Party spokeswoman for ethnic

communities.

This event was held at the

Lincoln Event Centre, and

was organised by the district

council, in partnership with

the Christchurch Multicultural

Council.

As has been the case in previous

years, it was a very successful

day, showcasing music and

dance performances, arts and

crafts and delicious food from a

variety of different cultures.

Over the past decade, Selwyn

has been one of the fastest growing

regions in New Zealand.

Between 2008 and 2017 the

population of Selwyn District

grew by 55.2 per cent, which

means an additional 21,100 people

moved into the region. This is

roughly the same as adding the

population of the town of Ashburton,

which is around 20,000,

to Selwyn.

While many of those people

who have moved to Selwyn

have come from suburban

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

BRIGHT: Kabaddi demonstration players at the CultureFest

2018.

Christchurch or from other

regions of the South Island, we

are also welcoming newcomers

from around the globe.

Historically, Selwyn has been

less ethnically diverse than

other regions around New

Zealand, with over 90 per cent

of our residents identifying as

European, and this can make it

more challenging for those from

different backgrounds to feel at

home here.

However, we are seeing

increasing diversity amongst

our younger population with

80 per cent of our school pupils

here in Selwyn recorded as

European, 10 per cent Maori,

4.5 per cent Asian, 1.8 per cent

Pacific Peoples and 1.2 per cent

Middle Eastern, Latin American

or African.

For people coming to live in

Selwyn from other countries and

other cultural backgrounds, and

for whom English is not a first

language, I can only imagine

how challenging it must be to

adjust to life in a strange new

place.

However, I hope for those of

you who have experienced this

that you have felt warmly welcomed

by the local community.

From my own perspective it

seems that here in Selwyn we

do generally do a great job of

welcoming newcomers from all

backgrounds and helping people

feel part of our communities.

CultureFest is about celebrating

our region’s growing

Backyard Critters

Distinctive cobweb spiders

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

COBWEB SPIDERS are known

as Theridiidae, the family that

includes the poisonous katipo

spiders.

The most common species in

this family is the native diamond

comb-footed spider, Cryptachaea

veruculata.

It is believed that this species

may have been a natural

introduction by ballooning

across the Tasman Sea on silk

threads.

Males and females have a

body length of 2mm and 4mm

SMALL: Pattern on its abdomen lends itself to the name of the

diamond comb-footed spider.

respectively, so are small

spiders.

As the name suggests, the

spider has a distinctive diamond

pattern on its abdomen.

They make small, tangled webs

on plants, buildings and walls.

Webs may also contain their

pinky-mauve egg sacs.

They have also been found in

artificial wooden refugia, called

weta motels.

Playcentre celebrates

DUNSANDEL Playcentre is

celebrating 50 years of learning

and growing.

The minutes of 1968, kept in

a small, perfect notebook, in

delicate and flowing script, note

fundraising ideas of a cabaret

night which raised $357.

There were folk singers, Hawaii

torch dancers and a teen’s

dance for the cabaret which

aimed to fundraise for equipment

at the playcentre.

They also detail congratulations

on new births, that 63 gallons

of beer was needed for the

cabaret and that the Anglican

Church had approved the use

of the Sunday School hall for

the playcentre at the rate of $1 a

session.

Sessions commenced, babies

were born, roll numbers and

days offered went up and down,

office bearers changed hands

and speakers were invited to do

talks on progressive women,

make-up and deportment and

the role of adults with young

children.

In 1978 the playcentre moved

to its current location on Irvines

Rd with a Government subsidised

purchase of a relocated

prefab classroom.

Now, with a roll of 12 and

dedicated volunteers at the

helm, its Monday sessions are

buzzing, fresh and full of children

and family learning and

growing together.

•All former and current

members are invited

to its 50th anniversary

celebration on October 28

from 2pm to 5pm at the

playcentre on 17 Irvines

Rd in Dunsandel. RSVP to

Katharine on 0273078345 or

MAKING BUILDING easy

Selwyn Times

Poppies mark history

in Leeston

Take action on distraction

What kinds of distractions do you encounter while driving?

There are many things that can distract you from driving safely –

your passengers, eating food, talking on a hands-free phone, or

taking your eyes off the road to look at something.

A recent Ministry of Transport crash report showed that in 2016,

diverted attention was identified as a contributing factor in a total of

1,097 crashes in New Zealand.

These crashes resulted in 22 deaths and 210 serious injuries.

Selwyn District Council Road Safety Coordinator Peter Daly says

drivers need to take responsibility when driving and to ensure their

eyes are always on the road.

“Nobody ever thinks a crash is going to happen to them, until it

happens,” he says.

“The best advice anyone can have when driving is to just drive –

leave the cellphone, food, coffee and any other distractions until

the car is turned off. If we are distracted when someone else makes

a mistake in front of us, we have far less chance to avoid being

involved in a crash or incident.”

Another salute to Selwyn’s past has been added to the streets around the cenotaph at Leeston.

As part of the Poppy Places campaign, a poppy has been added to the signs for Gallipoli Street

and Messines Street, which border the township’s landmark cenotaph.

Both streets trace their origins to the Leeston war memorial, erected in 1924 to commemorate

soldiers from Ellesmere County who lost their lives during the First World War.

Many Territorial soldiers from the Ellesmere area volunteered to serve in the New Zealand

Expeditionary Force when it was established at the outbreak of the First World War in August

1914. It was these initial volunteers, and those who followed in the reinforcement contingents in

1915, who fought during the Gallipoli campaign.

The battle of Messines in June 1917 was one of the NZ Division’s greatest successes on the

Western Front, in that it achieved all of its objectives in the attack battle plan. However, the

division sustained 3,700 casualties, including 700 killed. Most likely there would have been

soldiers from Ellesmere County involved.

Council Asset Engineer Transportation, Mark Chamberlain, says the historic value of the poppy,

street name and location made the addition an easy decision.

“As a growing district it is important to remember the people who have come before us and the

sacrifices they made.

“There are a number of families still in the Ellesmere area who would have had family members

fight in the First World War, and this gesture is about helping to maintain the knowledge of what

our forefathers went through,” Mr Chamberlain says.

The cenotaph and the naming of Gallipoli Street and Messines Street have provided the people of

the district with a permanent focal point to remember and commemorate the sacrifice members of

their community made during the campaign.

Information on the Poppy Places Trust can be found on their website – poppyplaces.nz – with

information on Gallipoli Street, Messines Street and the other sites around New Zealand.

Out with the old, in with the new

Nearly 250 new LED lights have been installed on streets around Selwyn, as the district moves away

from older street lights to brighter, more efficient technology.

Across the district the Council is in the process of replacing 5,800 existing lights with the new LED models.

The replacement work started in the middle of 2018, and is expected to take three years to complete.

Support from the NZTransport Agency has been a key factor, financing 85% of the $3.3 million project.

Normally NZTA funds 50% of local roading projects, but wanted to work alongside local councils to help

them switch over to LED lighting.

The changeover started around Leeston, as its lighting stock is among the oldest in the district.

Asset Manager Transportation Andrew Mazey says some of the lights in Leeston have been in place for

more than 50 years.

“We believe that some of the lights in the area haven’t been replaced since they were originally put in,

and may date back to World War II”, Mr Mazey says.

The new lights are being installed in stages, with older settlements around Selwyn taking priority, due to

the age of the lighting infrastructure.

Mr Mazey says Lincoln and Rolleston will be the last areas to have the upgrades.

“With a substantial number of new subdivisions in Lincoln and Rolleston, the two townships have had a

head start in the switch over, as new subdivisions have to install LED lighting.

The new lights offer significantly cheaper running and maintenance costs.

Capacity building workshops

Are you a community group, club or not-for-profit looking to recruit

some volunteers?

We’ll be running a series of free workshops over the next eight

months, for not-for-profit community groups, organisations and

clubs as a part of the Capacity Building Initiative. These workshops

will consist of a wide range of interesting and useful topics,

including funding and fundraising, governance, marketing, coaching

and more.

The first of these workshops will be held on Wednesday 17 October

from 5.30–7.30pm at the Lincoln Event Centre. The workshop will

cover the basics of volunteer management including recruitment,

retention and recognition.

If you’d like to learn more about this workshop or RSVP, please

contact Michael.Heywood@selwyn.govt.nz. Please RSVP by 5pm,

Thursday 11 October.

Strong week

for Canty

Country sides

• By Jacob Page

THE CANTERBURY Country

under-18 rugby team had their

best ever finish to a South Island

tournament on Saturday.

The under-18s finished fourth,

capping off a good South Island

tournament week for Country agegroup

teams with the under-16s

winning the plate final in Nelson

and the under-48kg team crowned

back-to-back champions.

The under-48kg team went

unbeaten at their tournament last

week, taking down Nelson 31-5 in

the decider at Belfast.

The under-18 team lost their

third v fourth play-off to Tasman

33-26 at Kaiapoi. They had a 32-all

draw with Canterbury Metro Black

and a 46-41 win over Tasman to

make the top four.

Under-18 coach Glen Dunseath

said in spite of limited training, the

squad did an excellent job.

“Country rugby at this agegroup

has had a heck of a year with

Rangiora and Lincoln (Combined)

doing so well in the UC Championship

and us making top four for

the first time,” he said.

“With 11 of the squad returning

next year, hopefully this is something

we can build on.”

Dunseath said all of the agegroup

results suggested country

rugby is in a strong place at most

age levels.

PREBBLETON Rugby Club

president Jeromy Knowler

believes his individual

recognition comes from the years

of hard work put in by people

behind the scenes.

Mr Knowler was named

volunteer of the year at the

Ellesmere Rugby Sub Union

awards night.

He said the award was a

massive honour and recognition

of how far the club has come

thanks to a number of people

over the past five years.

“I originally wasn’t going to

go but my wife said that I should

and as they read out the award, I

sat there and realised it had been

a bit of set up,” he said.

“I was very humbled to receive

it.”

He has been part of the club’s

back room since 2003 after

moving to Prebbleton.

“I only had half a season

playing low level senior rugby for

them in 1999,” he said

In 2004, he started coaching

at the junior level. By 2007, he

was the junior club captain and

eventually made his way to vicepresident

before taking over the

top job at the 2014 annual general

meeting.

“We’ve always had strong

junior numbers but there were

tough times at the senior level,”

he said. “Four or five years ago,

we were seriously considering

whether we could continue to

have a division one team.

“Fortunately we had guys who

stepped up and prevented that

from happening, and slowly but

surely, we were able to create

some depth. And this past season

making the playoffs has shown

we were on the right track.”

Mr Knowler said the senior

rugby culture was something

the entire club had tried to

improve.

“We’ll cook them a meal each

week and sit down and have a

chat with them,” he said,

“It’s been great to be able to

sit with our players and find out

who they are on a more personal

level.”

Mr Knowler said he wants to

ensure the club remains in good

stead ahead of its centenary

which will be held over Easter

weekend next year.

Darfield beat Cheviot

in opening round of

one-day competition

• By Jacob Page

DARFIELD MADE the most

of bowler-friendly, early season

conditions to beat defending

champions Cheviot on Saturday

by four runs in the opening

round of the CRV Ambreed

country premier one-day

competition.

Darfield were able to defend a

meagre 126 on a day in which the

ball dominated the bat in all four

matches.

Southbrook cruised to an easy

nine-wicket win over Kaiapoi,

chasing down the 53 runs they

required for victory in just

the 12th over at Southbrook

Domain.

Oxford’s lower order held their

nerve to beat Sefton by three

wickets, chasing down their

target of 126 with 33 balls to

spare at Dudley Park.

Weedons cruised to their

target of 89 with seven wickets

remaining after they skittled

Leeston-Southbridge for just 88.

Ellesmere College earns silver

on court at national tournament

• By Jacob Page

THE ELLESMERE College

senior girls basketball team

produced their best ever result

at the national tournament on

Thursday, finishing second in

Palmerston North,

They were the only South

Island school across all the

grades to earn a medal during

tournament week.

The team ended up losing the

final 91-70 to Manukau.

That match came after a

pulsating semi-final against Te

Aroha College which Ellesmere

won 59-57.

Coach Josh Thompson said

experienced players like Paris

Nurse and Megan Ellis helped

steady the team at crucial

moments.

“You need that kind of

experience in tournament

basketball,” he said.

“Those girls have all been there

multiple times and it helps our

younger players cope with the

week at the end of what has been

a pretty long season.”

Ellesmere College also finished

second at the single A South

Island tournament for smaller

schools last month.

Thompson said he was

delighted with how his team

responded to the pressure against

Te Aroha College but they

could not match it against the

height of the opposition in the

final.

“When one of the players is

six foot three (1.92m), it makes it

tough,” he said.

“We tried to do what we could

to combat it, but it didn’t quite

happen.”

Thompson said in spite of

four year 13 pupils leaving the

team, there were seven players in

years 9 and 10 who attended the

tournament.

He hopes this will ensure any

rebuilding of the team would

be swift so they can remain

competitive next year.

Milligan eyes up

endurance series

after tough Bathurst

• By Jacob Page

PREBBLETON’S Jack Milligan

has set his sights on the final

round of the South

Island endurance

series at the weekend

after a frustrating

three races at Mt

Panorama.

Milligan was racing

in the Australian

Toyota 86 series at

Bathurst from Friday

to Sunday, but had no

luck at all in spite of

having a car capable

of quick times.

He was held up during his

qualifying lap on Friday, which

meant he qualified for race one

Jack Milligan

SELWYN TIMES

of three in the middle of the

pack. That race was abandoned

on Saturday after a big crash on

the opening lap.

Milligan had more

luck in race two, working

his way up from 16th on

the grid to finish ninth.

The final race was

under the safety car

for all but one lap and

with the limited time he

finished eighth.

“We’ve gained more

valuable experience at

this iconic track which

is valuable moving

forward,” he said.

“We had the speed but

couldn’t maximise it with the

laps under safety car.”

FOCUS: Jack Milligan has turned his attention to the South

Island endurance series in Timaru at the weekend after

having no luck at Bathurst.

Sewlyn Sounds

Little River Band to headline festival

WELL KNOWN for classic

songs Cool Change, Lonesome

Loser and Take it Easy on Me,

Little River Band will return to

New Zealand to headline Selwyn

Sounds on March 2.

The band is known for a string

of instantly recognisable hits

and was described by Eagles

founding member Glenn Frey

as “the best singing band in the

world.”

Total worldwide album sales

and digital downloads of the

band’s music now top 30 million

and the group was the very first

to have had top 10 hits for six

consecutive years.

It will be the first time the

current line-up has toured here

since the introduction of new

rhythm and lead guitarist Colin

Whinnery in February.

Whinnery, of Nashville,

brings a new voice and outlook

to the band’s rhythm section

while sharing lead vocal duties

with the longest standing band

member Wayne Nelson.

Currently on a busy tour

schedule in the United States, the

band will only have a week break

between a February 22 show in

California and Selwyn Sounds.

Little River Band’s next

international tour after Selwyn

Sounds is set for Germany late

HITS: Little River Band will play at Selwyn Sounds on Saturday, March 2, at Lincoln Domain.

next year.

Originally formed in

Melbourne in 1975, the band’s

sound quickly became popular.

Within eight months of forming,

Little River Band had three

Australian top 20 singles and

two top 10 albums.

They first travelled to the US in

1976 and are now based there.

The line-up of members has

changed many times over the

years and is now completely

different from the original

group. The last original member

to leave was Derek Pellicci in the

1990s.

The last Australian member,

Greg Hind, left the group earlier

this year and was replaced by

Whinnery.

Nelson fronts the band on lead

vocals and bass, supported by

keyboardist Chris Marion, lead

guitarist Rich Herring, drummer

Ryan Ricks and newcomer

Whinnery.

Over their last few shows, the

band has often opened with It’s

A Long Way There before closing

the set with crowd-favourite

Lonesome Loser.

The band was inducted into

the Australian Recording

Industry Association hall of

fame at the 18th annual ARIA

Music Awards in 2004 and Cool

Change is rated as one of the top

30 Australian songs of all time.

Selwyn Sounds is on

Saturday, March 2, at

the Lincoln Domain.

JONES ROAD

ROLLESTON

Business growth prompts

move to bigger premises

After a successful six years growing

their Jones Road Auto business, owners

Nigel and Lisa Fleck are moving to

larger premises.

“With the growth of Rolleston

township our business has expanded

and we have now outgrown the site at

Jones Road,” Lisa says.

“We have bought the land and are

building new premises on the corner of

Hoskyns Rd and Iport Rd. The building

will be nearly twice the size of our

current premises – it’s the next step in

our business and we are really excited

about it.

“The workshop will be equipped with

new technology and there will also be

a lot more car parking space, so our

customers will be very happy.”

Construction of the new building is

underway and they expect to be open

for business there by the end of this

year, or early next year, Lisa says, and

while they will be in different location,

the name Jones Road Auto will stay the

same.

The expansion of the business also

means new staff are needed, and they

are on the lookout for fully trained

mechanics to join the team.

Offering the full range of mechanical

servicing and repair work on all makes

and models of vehicle, Jones Road Auto

is consistently rated as one of the topperforming

workshops in New Zealand

by the Motor Trade Association.

Lisa says their high rating is due

to the quality of the workmanship

provided at Jones Road Auto.

“We have excellent staff who do a

great job for our customers,” she says.

Jones Road Auto is also strongly

committed to the local community, and

each year the business sponsors the

Selwyn Motor Fest. Last year, the event

Haval H9 engineered for life in the rough

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Ross Kiddie

I LIKE to see vehicles used for

the purpose for which they were

designed.

When I got home from picking

up a Haval H9 I crawled underneath

to have a look at its suspension

and driveline design. While

I was under there I noticed that

the evaluation car had been well

used, there were a few battle scars,

obvious signs it had done a lot of

off-road work.

That’s a good thing, for the

Haval H9 is a definite off-road

vehicle, it has high ground clearance

(206mm), a live rear axle

located by coil springs, a low

ratio transfer case, and several

electronic drive modes to cater

for any loose surface track – mud,

snow and sand. There is also a

genuine low ratio for when the

going gets really tricky.

This is all packaged in what

Haval call an All-Terrain Control

System, it can be manipulated

through the turn of a consolemounted

dial, and when it’s time

to head home from the high

country jaunt there’s even a sport

mode so that highway performance

is maximised.

There is a lot kit in the H9, and

if you are thinking that it rivals

say, Toyota’s Land Cruiser and

Prado, you’d be right, there are

many similarities, even to some

of the luxury four-wheel-drive

brands such as those out of the

Land-Rover stable. But instead of

an outlay of over six figures, the

Chinese-built Haval H9 lists from

just $43,990.

The evaluation car was a highspec

Ultra model, and it sits at

$47,990. In terms of specification

for that price it is simply daunting,

it wants for nothing and

there is a definite feeling of luxury

through and through. There is so

much kit on it that comprehensive

detailing is impossible. But

it’s fair to say that if you want a

large seven-seat sport utility vehicle

that has all the bells and whistles,

then H9 won’t disappoint.

Incidentally, Haval is a company

which is part of the giant Great

HAVAL H9: Large sport utility vehicle from China.

Wall conglomerate,

There’s a short off-road track I often

use for serious four-wheel-drive

vehicles, so I presented it to the H9,

but because the weather was dry

and the track hard there was little

challenge. At the end of the track

there is a steep incline, but it, too,

presented little difficulty.

Even though the H9 is capable

in those conditions, it also imparts

a serious feeling of luxury

and comfort. The suspension –

double wishbone up front – has

soft spring and damper rates, any

bumps are fully absorbed, and the

rugged nature of the rear is a well

proven formula that if a live axle

is located well you get both good

articulation and body control.

Up front the H9 is driven by

a 2-litre, four-cylinder petrol

engine. While it is far from the

norm in a big sport utility vehicle,

don’t be thinking it is underwhelming.

It is a turbocharged

unit with a high power output of

180kW. More importantly, it has

a solid 350Nm of torque available

all of the way from 1800rpm to

4500rpm. Coupled to an eightspeed

automatic transmission,

the combination provides a solid

form of energy all through the rev

band, there’s never a point where

you think it is not working as well

as it should.

Sure, acceleration off the mark

isn’t rapid, a standstill 100km/h

time of 11.3 sec is largely due to

the weight of the big seven-seater,

it’s quite tubby at 2230kg. All that

aside, when the H9 gets rolling

and that turbocharger is boosting

strongly there is good mid-range

urgency, a 80km/h to 120km/h

overtaking time of 6.3sec can be

expected.

It also travels smoothly, the H9

road manners are impeccable,

ride comfort is strong, and when

it comes time to negotiating

those tricky high-country corners

there is definite steering feel and

reasonable accuracy.

The H9 is tall at 1.9m, and

there’s no way the suspension

could totally combat body movement,

gravitational forces are arrested

as well as the chassis design

will allow, but you do notice there’s

a lot of vehicle to get through a

corner.

Huge Kumho tyres (265/60 x

18in) do their bit to maintain direction,

which helps, and it’s fair

to say the big H9 isn’t disgraced

handling-wise, it would compete

fairly with its competition.

The New Zealand distributors

for Haval claim a 10.9-litre per

100km/h (26mpg) combined

cycle rating for the H9.

That figure sits well with the

fuel usage readout on the dash

display during my time with the

evaluation car, it was showing

around 12l/100km (24mpg) when

I took the car back to the dealership.

That, along with an instantaneous

reading of 7.6l/100km

• Price – Haval H9 Ultra,

$47,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4856mm; width,

1926mm; height,

1900mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheeldrive,

1968cc, 180kW,

350Nm, eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11.2sec

• Fuel usage – 10.9l/100km

(37mpg) at 100m/h, would suggest

economical motoring can be

achieved.

On the subject of figures, Haval

also claim a 2500kg braked trailer

tow rating.

The H9 was the second car of

two from Haval that I have had

back-to-back. Both it and the H2

left a good impression in terms of

build quality and overall performance.

However, most of all, the entire

range reeks of affordability, the

brand is a way to get into a new

sport utility vehicle without

breaking the bank.

Kiwis tend to buy on price, and

that being the case I can see the

nameplate going from strength to

strength here.

FAMILY-FRIENDLY: The Haval H9 is a capable seven-seater.

Time of year to think tomatoes

• By Rachel Vogan

IT’S THAT time of year again,

tomato time.

Each year when I come to

share my tips and tricks on my

favourite crop I come across

things I didn’t know. Like, did

you know that the first tomatoes

in Europe were yellow varieties?

Over time breeders crosspollinated

tomatoes to breed red

cultivars.

Anyway, now that most of the

frosts have packed up, and the

days and nights are considerably

warmer, tomatoes can be planted.

If you live in a pocket where the

odd late frost can appear this

month, hold off planting yours

for a few weeks – unless they are

going into pots or tubs, then you

can tuck them somewhere warm

if need be.

Garden centres are jam-packed

with plants in all shapes and

sizes. Small seedlings are in

punnets, priced up between $4

and $5 each, or there are plenty as

individual plants, varying in price

depending on size and whether

or not they have been grafted. A

grafted tomato has a phenomenal

growth rate and generally

produces a larger plant, therefore

more tomatoes. You don’t need to

plant as many grafted tomatoes

because they produce more fruit.

THE BASICS

Sun, sun & more sun

If you cannot find a spot in full

sun away from blustery winds, you

can forget about growing

a decent crop. All-day sun will

produce the best crop; a few hours

in the shade is okay, but they need

at least half a day in full sun.

SOIL MATTERS

When planting in the ground,

blend in compost or tomato mix

first. This enables the soil to hold

on to more moisture. At this time

I blend in my tomato fertiliser,

too, then water the soil well. If

you can, do this a week before

you put the plants in the ground.

FOOD FIRST

Tomatoes are greedy beggars;

TANGY: Make sure to give your tomatoes plenty of support.

they just love food, particularly

tomato food which is blended

to promote healthy roots, strong

flower formation and fruit

development. This specialty

fertiliser is like a multi-vitamin for

tomatoes and does not contain as

much nitrogen as general fertilisers

do. Too much nitrogen in the soil

promotes more leaves as opposed

to flowers, which is not what we

want in tomatoes or other fruit

crops such as chillies, eggplants or

zucchini. A bag of tomato food will

last you a season or two.

TUBS, TROUGHS &

PLANTERS

Tomatoes are a good option for

growing in pots and containers.

Big is best when it comes to the

size of container, as they suck

up water and nutrients at rate of

knots. Therefore, the plant needs

to be able to develop a large root

system to supports its growth

habit. The potting mix needs to

be top notch, too, with plenty of

fertiliser and an ability to hold

onto ample amounts of water.

Suppliers make it easy and make

specific tomato mixes, which

you’ll find easily in the shops. If

you wanted to make your own,

blend equal parts of compost,

well-rotted manure and grit for

the base, then work in tomato

fertiliser prior to planting. The

risk with homemade mixes are

weeds and the potential that they

can ‘heat up’ if the compost or

manure isn’t fully mature.

SUPPORT

Most tomatoes require staking

to support the stem, which will

carry the weight of the crop as

it develops. Staking also helps

keep the fruit off the ground.

New dwarf and ground-covering

varieties don’t need this extra

support, however. Choose a

big fat stake or use a couple of

bamboo canes.

HOW TO GROW TOMATOES

IN A STRAW BALE

This season, as I have a limited

amount of soil space in which to

grow tomatoes, I have decided to

grow a few in pea-straw bales. A

couple of gardening friends do it

and they suggested I try it. So far

so good.

1. Select your sunny tomotogrowing

spot, bearing in mind

that once the bales become wet

they are not that easy to move.

2. Hydrate the bale of straw.

This takes about

a week of watering it once a day.

3. Sit the bale on its side and

remove about

10 handfuls of straw from the

centre of the bale to make a hole,

leaving the sides intact. Combine

tomato mix and tomato fertiliser

and put this into the hole you

have created.

4. Water and leave overnight to

dry out.

5. The following morning, plant

your tomato – and, if you like,

some companions such

as parsley and calendula.

Mine has been growing for a

month now, tucked up next to

the barn in which I live. It looks

healthy and is forming flowers

and setting fruit, so fingers

crossed it works. I am going to

try growing pumpkins using this

method, too!

CROP FAILURE

When things go wrong you can

normally attribute it with a few

main things:

Stress, through a lack of

hydration, is the cause of most

of the problems with tomatoes.

Once plants wilt and begin to

collapse numerous pests and

diseases can and will attack a

weak plant. Hence water is a

lifeline for tomatoes. The trick is

to water them deeply once or

twice a week, rather than a

little every day, especially when

planted in the ground. In pots

and containers, they will dry

out quicker, but in the ground,

you want to encourage the roots

to bury themselves deeply into

the cooler earth where water

is more available. Shallow or

light watering only encourages

the feeder roots to stay near the

surface where they often get burnt

when the soil heats up in the sun.

Poor plant nutrient is the

other main cause of problems.

If you expect your tomatoes to

be athletes in the garden, and

perform at their best, you need

to feed them on a regular basis,

especially when they are being

grown in tubs and containers.

Buying a second home

should you sell first or buy first?

When it comes to upsizing or downsizing a property,

homeowners are faced with a big decision – is it better to

sell the existing home first, or buy the new place first?

Real Estate Authority Chief Executive

Kevin Lampen-Smith says there’s no

‘right’ way to tackle it, but it’s important

for homeowners to think carefully about

their appetite for risk. Both options

come with pros and cons, and their own

unique set of challenges and pressures.

“Buying first provides the luxury

of time, meaning it’s possible to hunt

for homes without a settlement date

looming on the horizon. A buyer is

able to consider as many houses as they

like, move at their own pace and keep

searching until they find the property

that’s right for them and their family,”

Lampen-Smith explains.

While time might be on your side,

your finances might not be. To secure

the new home, buyers will need to come

up with the funds for a deposit, which

might be tricky if equity is tied up in the

existing property. Buying first means

there are suddenly double the bills to

pay, including home insurance, rates

and utility bills, as well as absorbing the

cost of bridge financing in order to pay

two mortgages.

“The extra financial strain

can sometimes mean sellers

pressure themselves into

setting a modest listing price

for their existing house or

accepting a lower offer, just

to seal the deal quickly,”

Lampen-Smith says.

On the flip side, selling

first can give homeowners a

much clearer picture of their

financial situation. Once

the existing home is sold, you’ll know

exactly how much cash you have to play

with and what you can afford to buy.

“However, once an offer has been

accepted on the current home, the clock

starts ticking towards settlement day.

Some buyers then feel added pressure

to make an offer on a home that doesn’t

exactly fit their needs or wishlist,

because they’re so focused on finding a

new place to move into,”

To avoid this, Lampen-Smith suggests

negotiating a long settlement period on

the existing home, to allow enough time

to find a new property. However, this

isn’t always possible, so homeowners

should consider what their plan B will

be. In a tight rental market, it can be

very challenging to find short-term

accommodation, which is why many

turn to friends or family. It’s also

important to consider the added costs of

moving household belongings twice and

paying for a storage unit.

There are pros and cons to both

approaches but homeowners can lighten

the load by ensuring all their ducks are

in a row.

“Speak to your bank or a mortgage

advisor to get your finances in order

and then build your support crew. For

example, you’re going to need legal

advice, a licensed real estate agent to sell

your property, an insurer and a building

inspector,” Lampen-Smith suggests.

However, as your home is likely to

be your biggest asset, it’s important to

prepare for some hiccups along the way

and have time or extra funds set aside

to deal with these. Building a strong

support crew of qualified professionals

will ensure you have the advice and

guidance you need at each stage of the

process.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Style with practicality

Many innovative

features are apparent in

Hallmark Homes’ new

Faringdon showhome.

Sharing its name with the famous

Wakatipu trout fishing river, The Lochy is

a warm and bright 261sqm home (35sqm

within the portico), making it perfect for a

family or empty nesters.

“Our aim was all day sun in the living

area,” explains Mike Bonne from Hallmark

Homes.

The Cedar and Rockcote aerated panel

exterior cladding complemented by

attractive landscaping, gives this home

instant street appeal. Indoors there are

many stunning as well as practical features

such as the: wood-look tiling through

the entry and family area; seamless flow

from dining to shaded alfresco living space; and wireless

operated ceiling velux window in the kitchen for extra light

and ventilation.

Seamless indoor/outdoor flow has been achieved

through two double bi-folds which open up a complete

internal corner of the dining area (with no corner post),

and raised deck height taking away any need to step down.

This creates a very large sheltered living space and perfect

entertaining area.

“We’ve been really thrilled with the response we’ve had

from people visiting our Rolleston showhome,” says Mike.

“The portico/alfresco area shows what can be done and

many clients have been keen to recreate their own version

of this.”

The separate lounge has warmth and intimacy, with

features like the raised vaulted ceiling with corniced

corners and concealed LED lighting giving a subtle effect

in the room. Sliding panels on built-in cabinetry mean the

television or selected pieces can be displayed or hidden

from view, depending on the orientation the homeowner

desires.

The kitchen dining area is itself striking, with modern

décor and efficient use of space. This includes a functional

pantry, eye level appliances, good bench space and a study

nook for the children to complete their homework under

their parent’s watchful eye.

The showhome has three bedrooms plus an office

(a potential smaller fourth bedroom). The bedroom

positioning with proximity to the master bedroom is ideal

for young families while the bathroom and ensuite offer

an element of separation between master and smaller

bedrooms.

The house has a separate laundry, washbasin in the

separate toilet, walk-in tile and glass shower in the ensuite,

bath and curved door shower in the main bathroom,

double wardrobes in the second and third bedrooms, and

additional storage areas.

Hallmark Homes have done a great job in creating a

very appealing and liveable home and while at a higher

price point than the standard Lochy, this showhome offers

viewers numerous ideas for their own new home.

Hallmark Homes’ Rolleston showhome can be found

at 9 Lemonwood Drive in Faringdon; open 12noon-

4pm, Wednesdays to Sundays though you may find a

representative there at other times.
