Pathway falls into no man’s land

Council,

developers

at odds over

who pays

• By Emily O’Connell

RATEPAYERS MAY have to

pay to sort out a footpath and

cycleway outside The Warehouse

in Rolleston.

The footpath and cycleway on

Masefield Drive disappear as the

road narrows around a bend.

The district

council and

the developers

of Rolleston

Square, where

The Warehouse

is sited, are

at odds over

which should

David Ward

pay.

Rolleston

Square director Lloyd Bathurst

said the footpath was put in by

the district council.

Mr Bathurst said his company

have fulfilled its responsibilities

in regards to the development.

Rolleston Residents’

Association chairwoman Leonie

MacLachlan said her personal

view was that it needs to be

sorted so it’s safe for pedestrians

and vehicles.

“It’s been nearly one year I

believe. So the council and the

developer possibly need to work

in together to resolve it,” she

said.

Mrs MacLachlan said “a lot”

of people have mentioned it to

her and it was discussed at a

residents’ association meeting but

the council told them it was the

developer’s responsibility.

The district council has

asked Mr Bathurst’s company for

a meeting this week over road

widening, kerb and channel, a

footpath and cycleway.

He had not decided if they

would attend the meeting.

District council chief executive

David Ward said it considers the

developers have responsibilities

to resolve the current situation to

avoid costs having to be met by

ratepayers.

“Council is aware of the issue

and has been discussing the

upgrade acknowledged as needed

with the adjoining developer,” he

said.

ROLLESTON RESIDENTS have every

reason to be disappointed with the

outcome of road work on Masefield Drive

which we highlight on page 1 today.

And it looks like ratepayers across the

district will have to pay for a fix.

The cycleway and pathway outside of The Warehouse stops

where the road narrows.

Reporter Emily O’Connell has been back and forth to the

district council and the company involved in the development

to try and find out which will have to fix it.

But it’s a case of pass the parcel.

The district council believes the company is responsible; the

company says it has done the job as required.

The council won’t say if legal action is a possibility. It’s probably

not worth the cost.

Buyer’s market –

prices ease, property listings jump

• By Emily O’Connell

IT’S A buyer’s market for

properties in Selwyn.

Information released by

realestate.co.nz also shows

Rolleston is one of the most

sought after areas in Canterbury

It rates the fifth most sought

after area behind Fendalton, Rangiora,

Christchurch’s central city

and Cashmere.

A big climb in new listings

and a drop in asking prices are

making the market more attractive

to buyers, realestate.co.nz

says.

Rolleston’s Ray White licensee

agent and business owner

Brendan ‘Big Red’ Shefford said

prices “have eased” as there’s

more supply and buyers have a

“good selection.”

Mr Shefford said there are

many contributing factors to

Rolleston’s popularity.

He said Rolleston “is the heart

of Selwyn” and it has a variety of

schools on offer as well as other

facilities, employment opportunities

and the development of the

Christchurch Southern Motorway.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity

to be a buyer in the market at the

It comes as Selwyn property

owners are expecting to receive a

letter with an updated property

valuation in about a week.

Quotable Value carried out

the revaluation on behalf of the

district council and it showed

there has been a 6.7 per cent

average increase in capital values

in Selwyn since 2015.

The valuations are an estimate

of the likely price that would

have been paid for the property

on July 1 of this year.

Mr Shefford believes the average

increase is down to “natural

growth” with “everything going

up over time.”

Residential property values

rose by an average of 3.8 per cent

between July 2015 and July 2018,

with lifestyle properties increasing

by an average of 8.4 per cent.

Property value changes varied

across the largest towns – with average

values increasing by 4.1 per

cent in Rolleston, 1.1 per cent in

Lincoln, 2.4 per cent in Prebbleton

and 0.4 per cent in Darfield.

Other townships showed

similar increases with Leeston

increasing 5.1 per cent, West

Melton 3.8 per cent, Tai Tapu

Neighbour wakes teen from blaze

• By Emily O’Connell

BRODIE ABLETT will always

be grateful to his neighbours

who woke him from a nearby

fire at the weekend.

Mr Ablett, 19, was woken by

his neighbour as a blaze in a

garage on their property was

within minutes

of erupting

into an inferno.

He was asleep

in his father’s

Rakaia Huts

house when

the fire started

Brodie

Ablett

in Merrolli

and Graham

Turner’s garage.

Mr and Mrs Turner, who live

on Ocean View Pl, were also

woken by their neighbours,

Barry McKay and Graeme

Patterson, after Mr McKay

smelled smoke about 5.50am

on Sunday.

Mr Patterson had been

watching the England v South

Africa rugby game and was

planning to go whitebaiting.

Mr McKay was planning to go

fishing.

Mr Ablett said he is

“unexplainably grateful” to

have been woken up by Mrs

DAMAGE: Merrolli and Graham Turner’s garage after the fire.

Turner. “I would hate to think

how it may have gone down if

it [the fire] had hit a gas bottle

or the trees at the front of our

section where the fire was

heading,” he said.

By the time Mr Ablett left

his father’s house, Mr McKay

and Mr Patterson had pulled

the boat away from the front

of the garage and were using

the garden hose to begin

extinguishing the fire.

“We actually got it out with

a garden hose, reasonably out

anyway, and then the brigade

turned up and took over from

there,” Mr Patterson said.

Southbridge chief fire officer

Donald McMillan said they

were “very lucky.” If no one

had been awake, he said the fire

would have spread to where Mr

Ablett was sleeping in about

10min.

“It would have happened if

no one had woken up, it would

have spread,” he said.

It took firefighters 20min to

contain the blaze, which caused

“considerable damage,” Mr

McMillan said.

Mrs Turner said they have

insurance but it was still

“pretty scary and shattering.”

She said the garage contained

their Suzuki Escudo, power

tools, fishing and motor-cycle

gear.

Mrs Turner said the cause

of the fire was still being

investigated.

Concern over fire risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

HOT WEATHER and strong

wind at the weekend has

Kirwee’s chief fire officer

pleading with residents to

maintain their properties

to prevent major fires over

summer.

Chief fire officer Stuart Jones

is calling for residents to be vigilant

and ensure they cut down

long grass.

The brigade is concerned over

the difficulty it is facing when

trying to access rural properties

with overgrown driveways.

The fire brigade is also

concerned over the build-up of

dry material that can fuel fires.

“We have had those couple of

inches of rain and the nice hot

weather. We are going to have

a quick spurt of growth and

everything is going to get quite

long quickly before it dies off.”

MetService meteorologist

Gerrit Keyser said the

combination of heat and

the fohn wind coming off

the mountains on Saturday

and Sunday made the best

conditions for fires to start.

The outlook for the next

four weeks shows average

temperatures are set to

be higher than normal in

Canterbury compared to

previous years.

Mr Keyser said it is expecting

temperatures to be 1.7 deg

C warmer on average than

previous years. The average

maximum in November for

Canterbury is 18.9 deg C.

Mr Jones said trying to get

large fire trucks and tankers

up long driveways covered in

overgrowth is “impossible”.

He said it is hard to get the

trucks into overgrown areas

where fires are developing

and there are concerns over

firefighters getting trapped.

“We are just damaging our

vehicles if we do this and we are

putting our members at risk,”

he said.

Mr Jones also said the sale

of fireworks should be “totally

banned”.

“Especially in these winds,

it was ridiculous with the

winds we had out here all day

Saturday. Most of Saturday

night there was potential for

a major disaster . . . just from

stupid fireworks,” he said.

He said people are

irresponsible with how they use

fireworks and there are already

enough displays in Rolleston

and New Brighton.

THE KIRWEE Volunteer Fire

Brigade is ramping up its efforts

to secure a rapid response

vehicle to speed up its ability to

respond to emergencies in tough

terrain.

Chief fire officer Stuart Jones

said the brigade needs a fourwheel-drive

as it is often called

out in deep snow, high winds,

and to areas with unsealed

roads.

Mr Jones also owns the

Challenge service station in

Kirwee. It has launched a My

Challenge rewards programme

to help the brigade achieve its

goal. Customers have the ability

to choose to donate their My

Challenge fuel discount to the

brigade.

“We’ve been doing raffles

down at the hotel, the usual

stuff, but now we’re seeing a

much wider section of our

village community able to

donate because it’s so simple,”

Mr Jones said.

He said being limited to

large fire trucks is slowing

down its ability to respond to

emergencies. The 4WD and

a locker box for equipment is

estimated to cost about $50,000

and the brigade has raised about

$30,000 over the past year.

“Taking the big fire appliances

around those tracks is pretty

challenging. We’re damaging

the trucks, smashing mirrors

off, that sort of thing, just to

get around and up these long

and tree-lined drives,” said Mr

Jones.

He said the brigade could use

the rapid response vehicle to

locate the scene of an emergency

and scout out safe access before

bringing in its heavy equipment.

He’s hoping the Challenge

initiative will get them over the

goal line.

Garden award ‘a surprise’

• By Emily O’Connell

FOR MARILYN and Dave

Cable, being named as the

overall winners in the Rolleston

Residents’ Garden Competition

came as a surprise.

The competition, which

encourages people to beautify

the town through gardening,

attracted 34 entries this year.

Unable to spend as much time

in the garden as they would have

liked, Mr and Mrs Cable didn’t

feel confident going into the

contest.

In spite of this, the couple won

the large garden category and

became the overall winners.

They have been entered every

year since 2011 and Mrs Cable

says she just “loves” gardening.

She said Mr Cable does the

“lawn, edges and hedges” and

she does the rest.

“It gives me an opportunity

to get the garden tidied up to

a reasonable standard, it gives

me a date that I need to work

towards,” Mrs Cable said.

Competition president

Brenda Dunlop said this year’s

competition went “really well”

and they were “impressed” with

the standard of gardens entered.

A prize-giving was held last

week for winners at Lemonwood

Grove School. Mayor Sam

Broughton helped present the

Sunstrike likely factor in crash

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

SUNSTRIKE IS believed

to be a factor in a threeway

car crash in Rolleston

– leaving the drivers

involved lucky to walk

away injury free.

A man driving on

Curraghs Rd failed to see

an oncoming vehicle on

Maddisons Rd.

The impact of the crash

caused the vehicle travelling

on Maddisons Rd to

collide with another car

waiting on the other side

of Curraghs Rd.

The crash happened at

about 8.10am on Friday

morning and was attended

by police, ambulance

and the fire service.

Sergeant Phil Bayne

said the man who failed to

see the oncoming vehicle

possibly had sunstrike as

he was looking east.

A woman driving the

vehicle on Maddisons Rd

was taken to Christchurch

Hospital to be assessed

but there were no injuries.

Sergeant Phil Bayne

said the crash could have

ended in a fatality or serious

injuries.

He said it was lucky

the speed limit had been

reduced to 80km/h on

Maddisons Rd.

“That had a major

impact on lessening the

severity of the crash. The

fact everyone was wearing

seat belts made it easier as

well,” Sergeant Bayne said.

Sergeant Bayne said

the car travelling on

Maddisons Rd and the

car waiting on Curraghs

Rd sustained moderate to

severe damage.

were born 11 days ago. Fern’s mother, Stephanie Broomhall, says the fiveyear-old

Broomhall said she’s heard it’s quite rare for a ewe to have five lambs. When

Armistice Day commemorations have

HONOURED: Trooper

Gilbert ‘Bertie’ McGill of the

Canterbury Mounted Rifles,

taken before transferring to the

Canterbury Infantry Regiment.

He died of wounds while

serving on the Western Front in

France. ​

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 Armistice Day commemorations

THE COMMEMORATION of

the centenary of Armistice Day

to be held at the new Lakeside

Soldiers’ Memorial Hall on

Sunday has a greater historical

significance for the Selwyn

District than most people realise.

Traditionally in New Zealand

and Australia, Anzac Day has

provided the main focus for

remembrance of sacrifice in war,

with Armistice Day receiving

only limited attention.

However, the building of the

new memorial hall in the centennial

year of the end of World

War 1 is proof of the continued

commitment of the people of

the district in remembering the

sacrifice of the citizen-soldiers

and nurses who went to war to

defend the nation’s interests.

The building of a new hall at

Lakeside to replace the old hall

that had been demolished after

suffering significant damage

from the September 4, 2010,

earthquake was contentious.

Some questioned the rationale

of building a new hall in an

area of low population density

when it would be better suited in

Leeston.

However, the heritage significance

of the old hall was

recognised by the district council’s

decision to build a modern

replacement to preserve its commemorative

function.

What made the original hall

so significant was that it was

one of the first, if not the first,

Great War memorials built in

Canterbury.

It had a dual function of not

only being a memorial to those

from the district who served

overseas during World War

1, but also served a practical

purpose in providing a muchneeded

community meeting

place.

According to a report marking

the opening of the memorial

hall published in the Ellesmere

Guardian on August 4, 1917, the

residents of Lakeside had begun

raising funds for a community

hall in 1914, but it was agreed

to put the project on hold at the

Our Great

history

WITH WAYNE STACK

outbreak of war later that year.

The war went on longer than

expected and the need for a

hall became acute due to the

increased number of community

functions held to support the

war effort.

Raising sufficient funds to

build the hall had been an

obstacle in the past, but like the

funding for the new hall in 2018,

the project was realised through

community collaboration.

In 1916 ‘a generous and wellknown

local lady,’ who remained

anonymous, had offered to fund

free of interest the amount of

money required over and above

the amount subscribed by residents.

And it was at her suggestion

that a brick building be put up

and dedicated to the memory

of the Lakeside soldiers serving

overseas in the war.

By this time the New Zealand

Expeditionary Force had suffered

heavy casualties fighting at

Gallipoli, on the Western Front,

and in Egypt and Palestine; with

a number of volunteers from

Lakeside among them.

The building of the original

hall also came about through

further generosity of John

McLachlan, a local farmer who

had donated land for the hall

to be built on adjacent to Hart’s

Creek near Creamery Corner.

Many residents were also

actively involved in the project

by providing free cartage of

building materials and providing

furnishings, while a Mr K. Patterson

presented a large wooden

roll of honour which hung in the

hall.

This originally recorded those

soldiers from the district who

served in both the Great War

and the Boer War, with names of

those locals who had served in

World War 2 being added later.

The tender for building the hall

was awarded to Messrs Paynter

and Hamilton from Christchurch

at a price of £699, of which

£300 was raised by public

subscription, mostly by Lakeside

residents.

historical significance

Once built, the main room of

the hall measured 50ft by 31ft,

with a high stud. There was a 6ft

vestibule at the front entrance, on

each side of which was a ‘retiring

room’ measuring 10ft by 9ft.

The main room included a

stage measuring 21ft by 9ft and

there was a large supper room at

the back, running the full width

of the hall, 31ft by 10ft deep.

The hall was reported as having

‘an attractive front elevation,

two large folding entrance doors,

with a neat window either side’

with the words Soldiers Memorial

Hall appearing in large letters

above the entrance.

The hall was officially

opened by the MP for

Ellesmere, Colonel

Heaton Rhodes, on

August 3, 1917.

This was a very

critical time for New

Zealand during World

War 1.

The NZ Division

had suffered several

thousand casualties on

the Western Front in

gaining success in the

battle of Messines in

June that year, which

was followed by the

disaster at

Passchendaele on October 12,

where the division lost 2861

HONOURED:

Lance Corporal

Hersey Rapley,

of Leeston, was

killed in the battle

of Messines

while serving in

the Canterbury

Infantry Regiment.

COMMUNITY: The original Lakeside Soldiers’ Memorial Hall.

casualties (including 957 killed in

action) in a single day.

Such loss of life in a military

event remains unprecedented in

New Zealand history

and the thought of

not returning home

weighed heavily on

those local young

men who travelled to

Europe and the Middle

East as reinforcements.

An example is that

of Trooper Clement

McLachlan of the

Canterbury Mounted

Rifles who later transferred

into the NZ

Rifle Brigade, serving

on the Western Front.

After receiving a

letter from his sister, Margaretta

Lochhead, giving him an update

on the progress of the building

of the hall, he replied in a letter

home expressing his hope that

there would not be too many

names on the roll of honour.

Sadly, he was one of those who

did not return, dying of wounds

in France in April 1918.

The McLachlan family connection

with the hall remains with

Clement’s great-great nephew,

Hamish McLachlan, being the project

architect of the new memorial

hall, while working for Architecture

Workshop in Wellington.

Other local family connections

to those named on the roll of

honour are still prevalent in the

district, such as the Lambies,

Taiaroas, Thians and Pattersons.

When opening the original

hall, Rhodes commented that

Lakeside was a rich fertile

district, that he was confident

the population would greatly increase

in the future and that the

MEANINGFUL: The roll of honour that will again hang in the

new Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall.

Creamery Corner would some

day become an important and

busy centre.

While this did not come to

fruition, his prediction that the

hall would prove very useful to

the district in many ways, while

also being a permanent memorial

to those from Lakeside who

served in the war, certainly did.

The original Soldiers Memorial

Hall became the heart of the

Lakeside community, providing a

sense of connection to the place.

Apart from being a venue for

annual Anzac Day services, for

93 years the hall catered for lifeevent

markers that are central to

small communities – weddings,

funerals, significant birthday

parties, elections, sporting and

cultural group meetings.

The new modern facility will

continue to fulfil these functions

for the years ahead.

Following the Armistice Day

commemoration, the hall will be

open for viewing, although the

official opening will not occur

until early 2019.

Time for young bird breeders to step up

• By David Hill

FILM STAR Doug Bain is keen

for the next generation to step

up.

The Pecking Order star

planned to step down as poultry

convener after the New Zealand

Agricultural Show on November

14-16, after bowing out from the

equivalent role at the Selwyn

Spring Show last month.

The Dunsandel farmer was

presented with the Ellesmere

A&P Association’s personality

of the show trophy in recognition

of decades of service and

his newfound celebrity status,

nearly 18 months on from the

release of Pecking Order.

He was the second chook

breeder to win the trophy after

former poultry convener Ted

Slattery won the inaugural event

in 1998.

Mr Bain was the Christchurch

Poultry, Pigeon and Bantam

Club president during the filming,

before being unceremoniously

ousted in a coup.

The film told the story of

members of the Christchurch

club as they prepared for the

2015 national show, which was

held in Oamaru.

“I walk down the street in

Leeston and Christchurch and

people will still come up and

congratulate me.

“Of course, one scene is never

forgotten.’’

He said the film had given

poultry shows throughout the

South Island a major boost.

“After the film came, Brian

Glassey and I, as two of the

stars, were both at the show in

Dunedin and people were queuing

up to congratulate us and

take photos.’’

However, he acknowledged

that fame had taken a bit of getting

used to.

“I’m a boy from out in the

tussocks and I don’t like a lot of

attention.’’

The Selwyn show featured in

Pecking Order, the 2014 show at

the beginning of the film and

the 2015 show at the end.

While the main events for

chook breeders were the various

poultry shows held during the

winter months, Mr Bain said

having a presence at the spring

A&P shows, such as Leeston,

Rangiora, Kirwee and Christchurch,

was good promotion.

He said he was keen to

encourage the next generation,

including 10-year-old Shaun

Prangley, of Dunsandel, who

won the W. L. Gobbe Cup for

best junior (under-16) at the

Selwyn show, after acquiring

some white leghorn bantams

from Mr Bain earlier this year.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Church bell

still missing

• By Louis Day

ST MARY’S churchgoers

in Springston were left

dumbfounded after they found

their bell had been stolen.

Spokesman Neville Benny said

the 150-year-old cast iron bell was

likely to have been stolen between

late September and early October.

“We had our last church service

on the fourth Sunday of September

and we weren’t back there

until October 14.”

Mr Benny said no one could

believe it until they saw the bell

had gone.

“The chap that usually rings

the bell came in and said the bell

was gone, so we all walked out

the door and we were all dumbfounded

really.”

Mr Benny suspected it was Lincoln

University students ahead of

the infamous garden party.

“If it was college students, they

could probably drop it off back

outside the door no questions

asked.”

Mr Benny estimated that the

bell would cost at least $1000 to

replace.

Mr Benny said he had notified

the police as well as scrap metal

dealers across the country but had

not heard anything.

Get involved in the community

Rolleston

Reserve

Management

Committee

chairman

Jens

Christensen

writes about

Selwyn’s

growing population and

why residents should

get involved in their

communities

IN 1989 the Springs, Ellesmere,

Malvern and part of the

Paparua councils amalgamated

to become the Selwyn District

Council.

At the time, these councils

were very much made up of

rural people and tight-knit

communities. Volunteering

in the community for the

community came naturally

back then whether it was for

the school, play centre, Plunket,

sports, hall, reserve, township

committee or residents’

association.

But things are changing and

previously rural townships like

Rolleston, Lincoln, Prebbleton

and even Darfield are expanding

rapidly and becoming in their

own right thriving urban

communities.

Rolleston, which had one

school in 1989, now has six

and Lincoln’s third is now

under way. Committees and

meetings are struggling to get

buy-in across the district, and

the situation is far worse in the

larger growing townships where

public attendance at meetings is

becoming smaller as well.

Apart from Malvern, which

has a community board,

the other three wards are

represented by township

committees. These township

committees are the interface

IDEAS: Jens Christensen is

encouraging residents to

make a difference by going

along to public meetings in

their communities. ​

between the community and

the district council and take any

concerns or projects up with the

council.

They are an important part

of democracy and they need

the support of the community

they represent. Malvern has

township, hall and reserve

committees, too, but it is the

community board there that

represents the community’s

issues to the council.

Likewise, all the townships

across Selwyn have reserve

or domain committees and

hall and community centre

committees to run the operation

of these facilities.

In many cases, these

management committees

are elected at the triennium

elections every three years,

and are committees of the

council which are delegated the

management of these facilities.

For the record and from

the council’s website, there

are 24 township residents or

community associations, 22

hall or community centre

committees and 18 reserve

committees or domain boards

governing their community’s

facilities.

In most cases, the township

committees/community

associations administer the

township grants received from

the council based on population

numbers and, in the larger

townships, these grants are

substantial.

So when you are reading the

council’s notice in the local

newspapers and see a township,

hall/community centre or

reserve/domain management

meeting is happening in your

area – come along, get involved,

and make a difference in your

community please.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Former mayor Bill Woods

responds to Weedons

Residents’ Association

secretary Gary Doyle’s

article on Selwyn’s

population increase and

what it means for residents

I agree with the comments

of Gary Doyle regarding the

pressures on facilities resulting

from growth of the district.

But there is

more to it than

portrayed by

Gary due to the

growth being

predominately

in one part of

the district. The

way our present

council views this situation is that

the growth thereby the demand is

universal throughout the district

which it is definitely not.

If there is pressure on facilities,

the cost related to that pressure

should be borne by those that

created and need the increased

demand.

This is usually done by a user

pays type of money collection

plus with an increase in demand

there is a related growth in

rateable properties.

The funding for these facilities

should be kept in relation to the

increased funding that is relative

to the population growth instead

of loading a considerable burden

on those who do not increase the

demand or receive the benefit.

Adequate police staffing levels vital

Selwyn MP Amy Adams

writes about the recent

homicide in the district and

Selwyn’s high crash rate

I AM SURE that many Selwyn

residents would have been

shocked by the recent homicide

in the district and the reported

involvement of gang members in

this incident.

While most Selwyn residents

are wonderful, law-abiding citizens,

this event is a reminder that

no community is immune from

the influence of gang activity and

criminal behaviour.

For this reason, it is vital

that our local police have the

resources they need to deal with

incidents and help prevent crime

in our communities.

Unfortunately, road safety

remains a major issue in our district

that takes up a considerable

amount of police attention.

As I mentioned in a column

in the Selwyn Times earlier this

year, Selwyn has an unacceptably

high rate of crashes, particularly

at intersections. Anything that

we can do to reduce both our

local and our national crash rate,

should be encouraged.

One way of approaching the

problem is to look at the reasons

for fatal crashes and see what we

Thorough process to select leaders at schools

• By Emily O’Connell and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

STUDENTS FROM around the

district are putting their best foot

forward in a bid to be named as a

school leader next year.

Lincoln High School has completed

a two-month process of

deciding its 2019 head students.

It started with students who

were interested, submitting a CV,

cover letter and teacher referee

report.

After a question and answer

session with the current head

students, applicants had a 5min

interview with principal Kathy

Paterson and assistant principal

Kylie Wissel.

This helped form the shortlist

of about eight to 10 students.

Their first task was to submit a

poster to the office so it could be

placed around the school.

The shortlisted students then

attended a two-hour “head 2

head” activity session, working

on problem-solving and communication

skills.

About a week later the students

presented a 1min speech to the

school. After this, year 9 to 12

students voted for their preferred

leaders. Staff also got a chance to

vote.

Last term, students helped out

at the Delta Community Support

Trust’s disco night. The trust

provides activities and a support

network for people who are

experiencing hardship, disadvantage

and disability.

The final stage of the process

was a 20min formal interview

with Mrs Paterson and Mrs

Wissel.

Miki Tiltman and Coven

Mouat have been named as the

school’s head students for next

year, along with Maria Mendoza

Nieto and Dylan Booysens who

will be the deputy head students.

Mrs Wissel said the school’s

selection process provides a “really

good insight into what areas

of strengths and weaknesses they

all have.”

“I think back to their first

interview when they were nervous

and unsure to becoming

wonderfully confident young

people,” she said.

Rolleston College’s leadership

is unique as it offers opportunities

from year 9.

As it’s a new school it currently

only has year 9 and 10 students.

Students are able to apply for

roles and go through a selection

process in their whanau.

They also have the opportunity

to attend leadership classes,

conferences and be part of action

groups when the need arises.

SCHOOLS

The school’s distributed leadership

model means leaders can

take the lead when they are ready

for the challenge.

Ellesmere College has a fourstage

process in choosing its

head students.

Students have to apply in writing

to indicate their interest by

October 15.

They are then invited to

present a short speech to their

year 12 peers on why they would

make a good school leader.

Following the speech, students

are then ranked in order of preference

by both staff and

their fellow year 12 students to

get an indication of who should

be shortlisted for the positions.

The shortlist usually ranges

from seven to 10 students.

The students are then interviewed

by the school’s senior

leadership team and a kaitiaki

before recommendations are

made to the principal who makes

the final decision.

Darfield High School’s selection

process is just as extensive

with applications for the leadership

roles closing and the initial

round of interviews being conducted

in August.

Successful students were then

invited to attend a leadership

camp last month at the Environmental

Education Centre of New

Zealand in Craigieburn.

At the camp head student job

descriptions are shared before

each student makes a presentation

at the camp on their vision

for the position and how they

will achieve this.

A second round of

interviews with head student

applications are held before an

announcement and presentation

is made at the school’s senior

prize-giving on December 3.

HISTORY: Kate Foster, Colin Wilson and Margaret Copland at the Hororata Parish

Spring Fair. ​

Suffrage 125th anniversary

celebrated at Hororata fair

ABOUT 1500 people attended the

Hororata Parish Spring Fair.

The community day, held at Hororata

Domain on Labour Day, celebrated the

area’s connection to a prominent moment

in history – 125 years since New Zealand

women achieved voting parity.

Well-known storyteller Margaret

Copland, along with historians Colin

Wilson and Kate Foster, presented Sir

John Hall’s story.

Sir John is buried at St John Cemetery

in Hororata. His last act before retiring

from Parliament was to pilot the women’s

right to vote Electoral Bill in 1893.

The presentation included sharing the

speech he read in Parliament supporting

the Bill.

Visitors to the fair were able to learn

more about the suffrage movement with

a display and movie put together by the

Homebush Stables Historical Society.

“It was great to be part of the Beca

A GROUP of mothers passionate about

bringing a toy library to Rolleston are

making progress towards getting the

project off the ground – but could do with

a little help.

The Rolleston Toy Library project is the

initiative of Fiona Morland who moved to

Rolleston with her family in October last

year.

“With so many young families in

Rolleston I thought we should set one up,”

Mrs Morland said.

Beginning with a general call for

expressions of interest on the Rolleston

Community Facebook page, Mrs Morland

soon discovered there was a strong desire

within the community for a facility.

She set about gathering a small group

of volunteers to figure out what needed

to be done to make it happen. The group

has formed a committee and has become

an official incorporated society. Students

from Rolleston College are helping the

committee with a logo design.

The biggest hurdle has been finding

suitable premises. The group is welcoming

Heritage Week and the Suffrage 125

celebrations, it added a new twist to the

fair and showcased our community,” fair

committee chairwoman Lucy Cookson

said.

The country auction was again a feature

of the event. Visitors showed off their

No 8 wire ingenuity in the Agri-Art

competition, creating garden art.

“While the spring fair is the major

fundraiser for the Hororata Parish each

year, more importantly, it is a wonderful

day for our community to come together

and welcome others to enjoy a day in the

country,” Mrs Cookson said.

She said there were numerous other

community groups and businesses with

stalls.

“As always, it takes a big team to

make these events happen. Thank you

to all the committee, stall-holders,

performers and the businesses and

individuals who supported the event.”

Bid for Rolleston Toy

Library gains support

any offers – from potential shared facilities

to sheds, containers or garages.

The feasibility of an online toy library is

also being investigated as an option.

The goal is to have a fully functioning

toy library that provides a collection of

safe, high-quality toys for children aged

up to six-years-old. The next focus for

the group is a fundraising campaign to

help secure a space and fit it out with the

essentials. There are also plans to make

applications for community grants.

•The committee will hold a toy

drive and car boot sale at Rolleston

College from 10am-1pm on

November 24. For more information,

• By David Hill

A LEADING Dunsandel farming couple

have been nominated in the first Primary

Industries Good Employer Awards.

Sharemilkers Michael and Susie

Woodward have been nominated in the

minister’s award category, announced by

Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor.

Mr Woodward is the Federated Farmers

North Canterbury dairy chairman and a

Central Rural Life columnist.

“It’s a good surprise. We had seen it

advertised and we

were approached

by someone

who wanted to

nominate us,” Mr

Woodward said.

“It wasn’t

anybody from

within our team,

so we are stoked

that somebody

thought we were

worthy to be put

forward.”

He said he

understood the

nomination

recognised the

value they place on their employees in

supporting them “on their journey” and

helping them to meet their goals.

While the Woodwards employed the

best candidates, Mr Woodward said

they were keen to encourage young New

Zealanders to work in the primary sector

and had recently hosted a Christchurch

school group on their farm.

“We’ve got three Kiwis so that’s half

Rotarians have got together to share their

The annual Rotary Club of Lincoln

event has been an ongoing project for

more than a decade, and it’s proven to be

a great way to welcome young overseas

scholars to the community.

Lincoln is a multi-cultural township and

this is reflected in the club membership,

with 10 of the 43 Lincoln Rotary members

originally from another country.

The club invited 15 postgraduate

students and their partners from China,

India, Iran, Lebanon, Pakistan, Romania,

Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam, Zimbabwe,

Indonesia, Myanmar, Morocco and the

Philippines.

us to learn about different cultures and

important that they feel valued and have

opportunities to advance.’’

He said the biggest barrier to employing

young New Zealanders was “attitude”

which was largely due to the ongoing

perception that agriculture was a

career for those who struggled

academically.

‘’We need people who are at the top

of their game in our industry. So it’s a

challenge for us of how can we produce

employees who get up each day and say

‘how can I make this job better?’ We still

need the

people [who]

are good

O’Connor

said good

“I’ve met

sector and one particular message has

stayed with me: First we look after the

people, then they’ll look after the animals,

and everything else will follow.”

A FLY SPECIES commonly seen about

the house at the moment is the garden

soldier fly exaireta spinigera.

It is a native of Australia but was

introduced into New Zealand around

1900. It has also found a home in Hawaii

and British Columbia.

SELWYN residents took the opportunity

to let the district council know what they

thought of the District Plan review so far.

‘Are we on the right track?’ was the

theme of the initial public consultation

on a number of key draft changes for the

future District Plan.

Consultation took place between

August 16 and October 8, except for the

cultural landscapes topic.

More than 270 online surveys were

submitted. The topics that received the

highest numbers of surveys were family

flats, night glow, sites and areas of cultural

significance, housing development in residential

zones and home-based business.

The feedback is now being considered and

will inform the drafting of detailed policies

and rules for the proposed District

Plan.

Adults are 14mm long and have a dark

body with black and white striped legs.

The adult flies feed on pollen and nectar,

whereas the larvae are decomposers and

are often found in composts or decaying

vegetation.

Larvae are flattened, strongly

segmented and extremely robust. They

are harmless to humans but are extremely

beneficial in decomposing vegetative

matter efficiently into rich compost.

Other species of soldier flies have

been cultured by companies overseas to

produce millions of larvae per day as an

example of sustainable bio-conversion.

One kilogram of the black soldier fly

larvae can consume 2kg of biowaste in

less than four hours.

These larvae are one of the richest

sources of protein on earth and are fed to

poultry or fish. These flies could be the

answer to a more sustainable future.

Selwyn District Council

WWI Armistice Centennial

Commemorations

Please join us on Sunday 11 November this year, to mark the

centenary of the armistice that ended the First World War in

1918. On that day 100 years ago, after four years of brutal conflict,

war finally gave way to peace.

Importance of Armistice

The commemoration of the centenary of Armistice Day to be held at the new

Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall on Sunday 11 November this year has a greater

historical significance for the Selwyn district than most people realise. Traditionally in

New Zealand and Australia, Anzac Day has provided the main focus for remembrance

of sacrifice in war, with Armistice Day receiving only limited attention. However,

the building of the new memorial hall in the centennial year of the end of the First

World War is proof of the continued commitment of the people of the district in

remembering the sacrifice of the citizen-soldiers and nurses who went to war to defend

the nation’s interests.

Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall

Memorial Hall

Bottom left: The new hall under

construction in October 2018

Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall replaces the old hall which was built during WW1.

The original hall was built on Harts Road in 1917 as a memorial to soldiers from the

local community. It remained in regular use until the earthquakes of 2010–2011, which

significantly weakened the structure, and it was demolished.

The new $1.6 million Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall, expected to be completed

in late November, is a large hall with adjoining courtyard space which can

accommodate traditional community activities, but also be able to host special

events, functions and weddings.

Join the Selwyn Youth Council

and make a difference

Applications for the 2019/20 Selwyn Youth Council are open now and young people aged

between 14 and 24 years of age who live in Selwyn are encouraged to apply.

The Youth Council is made up of 12 passionate young people with support from the Selwyn

District Council.

Current Youth Council Chair Paige Sullivan says by joining the Selwyn Youth Council you

could help make life better for local young people by representing their views to the Council

and other organisations.

The Youth Council ensures the voices of young people in Selwyn are heard in local decision

making and that their views are taken into account when planning projects that affect them, like

town centre works, local parks, pools, libraries and events.

This year the Selwyn Youth Council has been involved with a number of initiatives including the

Selwyn Link bus service trial, BOOST 2018, a ‘What do YOUth think? survey and hosting a ‘What

do YOUth think? event to gather feedback on the Long–Term Plan 2018–2028.

Mayor Sam Broughton says our Youth Council has made a big difference in Selwyn.

“If you are interested in helping support other young people and want to be a part of making cool

things happen you should put your name forward for consideration.”

Selwyn Carseat Champions seeking new volunteers

Selwyn Carseat Champions are a group of volunteers actively making a difference to our children’s

safety when in a motor vehicle, and they have positions available to be filled.

Volunteers are given training to be registered New Zealand Transport Agency Child Restraint

Technicians and are equipped with the skills to install child restraints from baby capsules through to

older children’s booster seats.

Anna Nurse of Leeston, trained as a technician four years ago she has several reasons for volunteering.

“This was something I could fit in around my family and work life. I have taken great pride over the years

in being able to help caregivers keep their little ones safe,” she says.

“It’s not just putting car seats in – each install is a lesson

and I know that mini lesson is going to be shared with

their friends and bit by bit the ripple effect of what we are

doing is changing the culture around car seat safety”

As our community grows with young families, demand for

the service is growing to the point where more volunteers

are needed to become child restraint technicians.

Volunteers are involved in monthly car seat clinics as

well as being available for one off checks when personal

commitments allow.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer in your

community please contact Stephanie Hautler

roadsafety@selwyn.govt.nz for more information.

Selwyn has initial say on future

District Plan

Many Selwyn residents took the opportunity to let us know what

they thought of the review of the current District Plan so far.

Are we on the right track? was the theme of the initial public

consultation on a number of key draft changes for the future

District Plan, which took place between 16 August and 8 October

2018 (except for cultural landscapes topic which was open for

consultation until 23 October).

Environmental Services Manager Tim Harris says it’s important to

get public feedback at an early stage of the review.

“We are especially pleased to see submissions from those directly

affected, which will help inform the potential shape and direction

of the future District Plan before the detailed proposed rules and

policies are drafted.”

A total of 272 online surveys were submitted and the topics that

received the highest numbers of responses were family flats, night

glow, sites and areas of cultural significance, housing development

in residential zones, and home-based business.

While most people submitted their feedback via our engagement

hub Your Say Selwyn, some had their say via email, phone calls

or at one of the drop-in sessions that the Council held across the

district. The feedback came from a broad cross-section of the

district’s population and from every part of the district.

In total our consultation site received over 5,400 views from people

who were interested to find out more about the District Plan Review.

In total our consultation site received over 5,400 views from

people who were interested to find out more about the District

Plan Review. To find out more about how people engaged in the

initial public consultation check out the full engagement report at

selwyn.govt.nz/districtplanreview.

What happens next?

Feedback is now being considered and will inform the drafting

of detailed policies and rules for the Proposed District Plan.

It’s expected that the Proposed District Plan will be notified in

early 2020 for formal public consultation. The longer timeframe

is due to the local government elections at the end of 2019 and

ensuring the newly-elected Council endorses the Proposed

District Plan before it is notified. After this, submitters will

have an opportunity to speak to their submission at a formal

hearing. Following the hearing, the Hearing Panel will make

recommendations on proposed amendments and the Council

will then make final decisions. We expect the new District Plan

to become largely operative by March 2022, subject to any

Environment Court appeals.

creative project?

Applications are open now for Creative Communities funding.

Funding is available to groups or individuals with community-based

creative projects that promote arts or culture in Selwyn.

• By Jacob Page

IT WAS a miserable Saturday

for Selwyn’s premier cricket

teams with all three suffering

losses in the Canterbury

Country one-day competition.

Leeston-Southbridge,

Weedons and Darfield were

all defeated as Southbrook and

Oxford went to the top of the

table.

Weedons suffered an

embarrassing batting collapse

on the road against Kaiapoi. The

visitors restricted the hosts to

69 all out inside 26 overs thanks

largely to pace bowlers Frazer

Austin 5/13 and Lachie Stove

2/22. Weedons started well,

reaching 18 without loss, but

then lost eight wickets for 10

runs to eventually be all out for

52, falling 17 runs short.

Leeston-Southbridge remain

third on the table after a late

collapse saw them lose by six

runs to Sefton at Sefton Domain.

Leeston-Southbridge appeared

to be cruising to the target

after a century stand between

Tim Gruijters (62) and Liam

O’Sullivan (37) had them at

135/5 in pursuit of 142 for

victory. Leeston-Southbridge

then lost five wickets for no runs

in 12 balls to lose the game.

Darfield were no match for

Oxford Rangiora at Oxford’s

Pearson Park. After being

sent in to bat on a green pitch,

Darfield lost wickets regularly

and found scoring difficult as

they were bundled out for 69

inside 35 overs.

Darfield were unable to take

early wickets and Oxford-

Rangiora cruised to the target

with eight wickets to spare.

Cheviot were able to knock off

competition leaders Southbrook

thanks to a gritty 53 off 47

balls from Jack Harris that saw

them through to 190/8. Former

Canterbury batsman Shanan

Stewart made a brisk 44 and

combined with Jack Boyle (24)

in a partnership of 70.

However, when both departed,

the previously unbeaten

Southbrook lost all momentum

and eventually fell 18 runs short.

On Saturday, Cheviot will host

Weedons at Cheviot Domain;

Southbrook will host Leeston-

Southbridge at Southbrook

Domain; Darfield will travel

to Rangiora to play Sefton and

Kaiapoi will hit the road to play

Oxford.

•Sefton 141/9 (T Harrison

36, M Rowe 24, A Robinson

22, S Barber 20; J Harden

2/17, T Field 2/23, W

Nuturing the young for 167 years

The late US journalist

Herb Caen wrote: “A city

is not gauged by its length

and width but by the

broadness of its vision and

the height of its dreams.”

Caen might have been

writing of Christchurch,

as our visions for the new

city pay homage to the

dreams of the founders

while unleashing our own

dreams for a lofty future.

At the heart of the

city since those earliest

aspirational days when the

founders laid out the first

roads and planted the first

trees, St Michael’s has had

at its heart the vision and

dreams of our city and its

children.

Indeed, for 167 years,

St Michael’s has been

educating and nurturing

the visionaries and

dreamers who continue to

shape our city and step

out into the world beyond.

For our young pupils have

limitless potential to lead

exciting and generous

lives, and we have the

responsibility to educate and inspire

them, to encourage every child to

flourish, in mind, body and spirit.

St Michael’s is a prep school for girls

and boys in Years 1-8. Our classes are

small, fewer than 20 pupils, and our

specialist teachers ensure each child is

an individual, well known by staff and

fellow pupils alike. For at the heart of

St Michael’s are the essential values

of Christian faith and good citizenship:

respect, integrity, community, faith,

hope and love.

An independent school education

at the primary level is a great gift

and so traditional foundations in

Counting the beat, an exploration of rhythm. Year 1

and 2 Music.

English and Maths are assured. This

academic rigour then underpins our

wider curriculums in Science, History,

Geography and Spanish. IT literacy is

taught, not assumed, and computer

use is measured. We like teaching and

talking to our pupils!

A prep education offers balance.

St Michael’s cultural and sports’

programmes further develop each

child’s foundation, as creativity and

problem-solving come in many forms.

Specialist art and music classes are

enjoyed weekly. We have two choirs,

and most pupils play at least one

instrument or study speech and

drama with one of our nine

itinerant staff.

Located in the heart of

the city, on the banks of

the Avon and the new City

Promenade, our extended

campus is spectacular:

today, the Art Gallery;

tomorrow, the Gardens;

tennis later in Hagley Park.

A recent school survey

indicates that many of

our parents now work in

the thriving city centre,

or Lincoln and Riccarton

Road hubs but they live

city-wide. They comment

on the benefit of knowing

their children are in

school nearby and the

convenience of popping

in for an hour to catch

a performance or watch

a race. With the new

central exchange only a

block away, a number of

children arrive by bus from

all corners of the city.

Is your child one of 15

or 50? Is their classroom a

calm, productive learning

space or is the noise and

movement unceasing? How

much of the teacher’s attention does

your child actually receive? There is

an alternative.

You and your child are warmly

invited to discover for yourselves

Darfield High showjumper

off to China after exams

• By Jacob Page

DARFIELD HIGH School

student Katherine Hadler has

exams and representing her

country to ponder over the next

couple of weeks.

​The 15-year-old will sit her

final NCEA level one exam on

November 20 – maths – and

then jet her way to China to

represent New Zealand for the

first time. She is set to compete

at an international under-18

showjumping event.

​The Springston Pony Club

member will compete against

riders from China, Australia and

Thailand in three gymkhana

games and showjumping at a

maximum height of 80cm.

Katherine has been competing

for the past 10 years. She got

her first pony at age four named

Charisma.

”I just remember asking

my parents for one since the

age of two. I learnt how to do

everything on that horse.”

She still has two horses,

including one she rides regularly

called Pavlova.

​Katherine said she was thrilled

to be representing her country

for the first time.

”It’s something I’ve wanted to

achieve for quite a while and one

day I would like to make it to an

Olympics.”

TALENTED: Darfield High School’s Katherine Hadler will head

She said certain traits made for

a good showjumping horse.

”Personally, I like a horse with

a bit of speed that can do tight

corners to save time. You also

want one you can communicate

with so you can get clear jumps.”

Katherine will ride local horses

in China, which she said would

be an added challenge.

”I’ll have three days to try to

bond with them which isn’t a lot

of time.”

She is not sure what the

standard of competition will

be, but said she is looking

forward to the challenge of a new

experience.

Littlejohn called up to bowl

for NZ at world champs

winter with her coach Ashley

enough to win initially, as it was

a really tight competition,” she

said.

“We had quite a mild winter

and having access to an artificial

green meant I was able to

practice three to four times a

week instead of just once a week

like in previous seasons.

“My coach has worked hard

with me during the winter and

his dedication and willingness

to give up his time has meant a

dISCOVER

Recalling happy times in

the old community hall

In a few weeks, the new Community

Centre in West Melton will be officially

opened, ushering in a new era of

community involvement and activities.

In a few weeks, the new Community

Centre in West Melton will be officially

opened, ushering in a new era of

community involvement and activities.

It will be an asset to West Melton, but

at the same time, there are many oldergeneration

West Melton residents who have

fond memories of the former community

hall, which for decades was the centre of

their social and community life.

Built in 1892, it was originally a shearing

and wool shed for the West Melton Sale

Yard and Dip Company, then in 1925,

with a drop-off in wool sales, the wool

shed was converted into a social hall. Ten

years later the shed burnt down, and a

new community hall was built with funds

raised by the community.

In 1961, the shareholders of the West

Melton Hall Company, formerly the West

Melton Sale Yard and Dip Company, gifted

the land to the County Council.

Further fundraising in the early 1960s

resulted in the addition of a kitchen,

supper room, lounge and Plunket rooms to

the hall.

West Melton’s oldest original resident,

John Pearce (87), recalls school concerts,

wedding receptions, 21st birthdays, dances

and balls being held in the hall. Soldiers

were farewelled from the hall and then

welcomed home there after the war.

Another resident, Alistair Nicholl, recalls

the “very successful” winter balls that were

held in the hall in the late 1970s and early

1980s, and which morphed into the “old

farmers’ balls”.

On June 17, 2017, locals turned out in

their finery for the final ball to be held at

the hall – a fitting farewell to mark the end

of its life, prior to demolition.

Jacqui Butt remembers winning first

prize for her school project at the district

flower show, which was held every year in

the hall. The “fabulous” school concerts

also live on in her memory – especially the

year she wore lipstick for the first time.

She also remembers the excitement of

having movies screened there, but with

something going wrong almost every time

the audience often wouldn’t see the end of

the movie.

Heather Wild recalls the fundraising

dances held to purchase curtains and

furniture for the hall; Alison Pearce

enjoyed card afternoons at the hall, while

her husband was a keen indoor bowls

player.

All the residents spoken to were sad to

see their old hall go, but believed the new

community centre would be good for West

Melton.

Vet centre creates strong

connection with community

The West Melton Vet Centre has just

celebrated its first anniversary, and over the

last 12 months, the practice has become an

integral part of the local community.

“What’s been wonderful is the strong

connection that’s been created with the

West Melton community, and we want to

thank the businesses for treating us as part

of the shopping centre, and the community

for their support,” says vet Michael Meehan.

The practice was established by vet

Jacoba Vaessler as a standalone vet clinic

specialising in the treatment of dogs, cats

and other small domestic animals. While

every animal is treated with care and

compassion, there was one incident with a

guinea pig that was especially memorable,

Michael says. The guinea pig, which was the

mascot at the West Melton School, needed

treatment for a cyst. This was successfully

carried out, and because it belonged to the

school, there was no fee charged.

“The children made us a thank you card,

and receiving that was very rewarding,”

Michael says.

Another enjoyable experience was the

successful treatment of a small goat that

was suffering from hypoglycaemia and

couldn’t walk properly. After the treatment,

the goat skipped and jumped joyfully out

of the clinic, to the delight of the vet team,

who posted a video of the goat on the

clinic’s Facebook page.

As a standalone clinic, West Melton Vet

Centre is able to offer prompt test results

and diagnoses, thanks to the high-quality

equipment Jacoba has had installed. This

includes an in-house blood machine, which

provides test results in 15-20 minutes, an

ultra-sound machine and a digital X-ray

machine.

Jacoba, Michael and the team of four

vet nurses pride themselves on providing

a professional service, without being too

clinical, Michael says.

“We are professionals, but we also enjoy

taking a casual, light-hearted approach

with our clients when appropriate, and

having a laugh with them.”

West Melton Vet Centre is located at

736 Weedons Road, phone 347 4546.

Opening hours are Monday to Friday

8am-6pm.

It’s all go

in the garden

It is all go in the garden and with Show

Weekend coming up there is plenty of time

to get those tasks done!

Here are some things you can plant this month

Veggies Lettuce, Chillies, Capsicums, Sweet Corn, Cucumbers,

Courgettes, Spinach

Flowers Poppies, Sweet Peas, Alyssum, Marigolds, Begonias, Petunias,

Lobelia

Show weekend is almost here so it is time to prepare to plant out your tomatoes!

If you have started them inside your seedlings will be keen to get into a bigger pot

or garden bed. Tomatoes are hungry feeders so before planting in the ground mix

in our tomato fertiliser so they will have a good start, then feed every 4 weeks until

the season ends.

Once your plant is in fruit make sure you cover them as birds just love those big

plump red tomatoes as much as you do. Cut off their laterals (these are the bits

that grow out from the main stems), as this keeps the plant healthier and the

nutrients go into producing the main fruit.

Safety

in the garden

Spring brings the risk of

catching Legionnaires

Disease if you don’t handle

potting mixes and compost

correctly. The bacteria that

cause Legionnaires Disease

are present naturally in the

environment and there is no

method available to eliminate

the bacteria.

So, we must work with

protecting ourselves from the harmful effects of these bacteria, in much the

same way as we protect ourselves from the damage caused to us by exposure

to the sun. Below are some precautions you can take to reduce the risk of

contracting Legionnaires.

• Open bags with a sharp knife – away from the face - in open spaces,

not in enclosed areas like sheds or greenhouses

• Remember to use gloves and masks when handling the mix

• Dampen any dry mix – being care not to inhale dry, dusty mix

• Store bags out of direct sunlight

• Always wash your hands after gardening, and before eating or drinking

The heat is on – time to grow chilli

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Henri Ham

CHILLI SEEM to generate a mass

following all over the world.

Did you know right here in

New Zealand, we have our own

chilli-eating competition and hot

sauce festival? Much like coriander,

chilli also really polarises

people. They either love it or

won’t touch it.

When it comes to chilli, I’m

definitely in ‘team heat’ and love a

good chilli in my cooking or even

on its own.

Chilli heat is measured in

Scoville Heat Units. The higher

the rating the hotter the chilli.

Trained testers dissolve dried

chilli in alcohol and sugar water

to measure its pungency. They

then sample the mixture and

dilute it until they can’t detect any

more heat.

Now I love chilli, but I’m not

sure if I’d like this job.

The current champion to the

‘world’s hottest chilli’ goes to the

carolina reaper. It has a little grim

reaper-shaped tail and clocks in at

1,600,000 SKU. To give some perspective

– the friendly jalapeno

measures around 5000 SKU.

Eating hot chilli is not for the

faint-hearted. People often find

them to taste initially sweet, with

an after burn that can last up to

one hour in unsuspecting victims.

And as a general rule, the smaller

the pod the hotter the taste.

Chillies are a spring and summer

plant. The first varieties are

ready right now such as jalapeno

and red hot chilli. In November

you’ll see the habanero red, bhut

jolokia (ghost pepper) and the

jalapeno red flame seedlings become

available. You’ll have to wait

until Christmas time to get your

hands on a carolina reaper plant.

Here’s are some of the chillies

in order of hottest (starting with

the hottest of the hot) – carolina

reaper, bhut jolokia, habanero

red, red hot pepper, jalapeno red

flame and jalapeno.

Planting wise, chilli are fairly

easy to grow. They like a welldrained,

sheltered and sunny spot

in your garden that is very similar

HOT: The capsicum jalapeno

(left) is ready for planting now.

Above – the carolina reaper

is considered the world’s

hottest chilli pepper.

to where you’d plant your tomatoes,

capsicums, basil and parsley.

If you’ve got space near any beefriendly

plants like oregano and

lavender, plant your chillies there

to help with pollination.

Increase the quality of your soil

by adding a good general fertiliser

and come compost. Sheep pallets

are also great to mix in with the

compost, and act as a slow release

fertiliser.

Chilli plants can get quite big,

so plant your seedlings around

30-50cm apart. But they don’t

actually need a lot of space, and

grow well in pots as well. Water

straight after planting, but after

that they only need attending to

every few days. Avoid wetting the

leaves to prevent the spread of any

diseases. And, once your chillies

have developed, you might like to

water them sparingly (depending

on your taste buds) as less watering

will make the fruit hotter.

In around two to three months

from planting, you’ll start to see

some spicy life. First flowers appear

then, after being pollinated,

they turn into fruit.

If you’re unsure whether your

plants have been pollinated

simply dab a small paint brush

in each flower to help spread the

pollen around.

Remember as with many fruit

plants, cut your chillies rather

than pulling them off. This encourages

more fruit to grow. And

what many people don’t realise is

that a whole chilli freezes really

well – lasting up to six months in

the freezer. When you’re ready

to cook with them, use an extra

sharp knife and chop up your

chilli while frozen. With fresh

chilli about $2 each in the supermarket

right now, it sure makes

sense to freeze them.

Chillies are perennial plants

meaning they can last a few

seasons. Once your plant has

finished fruiting, simply prune

back by about a third, and remove

any dead branches. They don’t

cope well with frosts. If you did

plant them in pots, move them to

warmer ground for winter. Either

indoors, or higher to the deck or

under the eaves of your house.

US-built Acadia released by Holden NZ

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Ross Kiddie

HOLDEN New Zealand has

launched its much-anticipated

seven-seat sport utility vehicle –

the Acadia

It is the first time Holden has

offered a GMC-based product in

its line-up.

Acadia boasts all the American

presence you’d expect from a

large SUV but, importantly, it has

had Holden input from early on.

While Acadia is unashamedly

American in its design, its

performance and driving persona

has that signature Holden feel

thanks to local engineering input.

Using lessons learned from recent

Commodore and Colorado

programmes, Holden engineers

have focused on delivering the

direct steering and composed

ride that resonates with Kiwis.

Acadia is driven by a powerful

3.6-litre V6 engine and ninespeed

automatic transmission. It

drives through the front wheels

with all-wheel drive on demand.

Standard across the range is a

traction select system, which

allows the driver to alter chassis

and powertrain attributes to suit

a variety of driving conditions.

Front-drive models offer normal

(2x4), snow, sport and trailer/

tow modes, while AWD models

offer 2x4 (AWD disconnect), 4x4,

sport, off-road and trailer/tow

modes.

Additional chassis and

driving dynamics features

include MacPherson strut

front suspension, five-link rear

suspension, rack-mounted

electric power steering system

and four-wheel disc brakes.

The media launch for Acadia

was held on a variety of twisty

roads north of Auckland. Initial

driving impressions were that

of an involving driving presence

with strong engine performance.

There is a large car feel with

comfortable in-cabin dynamics.

From the driving seat it

steers directly and there is

little body movement over the

suspension. The Acadia is quiet

in its movement and refinement

throughout the vehicle is hugely

noticeable. It is built on the same

production line as Cadillac in

Tennessee, consequently, build

quality is high.

A genuine seven-seater,

the Acadia is configured for

maximum comfort and flexibility.

The rear two rows of seats can be

folded flat for maximum cargo

capacity if required, while the

centre row is adjustable front to

rear so the ideal leg room can be

achieved for varying passenger

groups.

In a first for Holden, the new

Acadia features intelligent speed

assist with traffic sign recognition,

all carefully calibrated to local

conditions by Holden engineers.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

SELWYN TIMES

Animal tracing system ramps up

Work to strengthen New Zealand’s

animal tracing system to protect our

economic base and unique way of life has

been ramped up.

As Biosecurity Minister Damien

O’Connor said last week, “The National

Animal Identification and Tracing (NAIT)

scheme should have worked better during

the Mycoplasma bovis response and I’m

determined to help transform it into an

easy-to-use, world-class traceability system

to keep our primary sectors and economy

safe.

“From today, everyone who has an

interest in NAIT can have a say on proposed

ways to strengthen it for the future.

“Earlier this year the long-awaited NAIT

Review found a variety of flaws in the

system and more than half of users were

not recording farm-to-farm movements.

“We instructed OSPRI to crack on with

making operational changes and fixed the

NAIT Act 2012 under urgency to bring its

search and inspection powers in line with

other Acts to ensure compliance officers

can do their jobs.

“Now we need to hear from those who use

NAIT every day to tell us what changes to

the law will make the system both a useful

business tool and effective biosecurity tool.

“At the heart of these proposals is a

shared desire by the Government, farming

industries and all New Zealanders to

improve NAIT to keep our primary

sectors safe and ensure those blatantly

disregarding the rules and putting the

rest of the sector at risk are penalised,” the

Minister said.

The Ministry for Primary Industries

launched the regulatory consultation last

Tuesday morning at a technical briefing for

farming and industry stakeholders.

It looks at ways to tighten rules around

handling untagged animals, improve the

use of data, and align penalties with other

Acts to reflect the seriousness of noncompliance

with NAIT. It also discusses

longer-term improvements such as

including other species and specifying roles

for transporters and stock agents.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Bees and pollination the

subject of new research

Lincoln University Ecology Professor

Steve Wratten, a recently announced James

Cook Research Fellowship recipient, will

address one of the major biodiversity

challenges facing the future of agriculture:

threats to bee populations and their

pollination efficacy.

“Agriculture has been called the biggest

ecological experiment on earth. This global

activity occupies 36 per cent of the earth’s

arable land and contributes up to 40 per

cent of the GDP in developing countries,

but less than one per cent in developed

ones,” Professor Wratten said.

“The idea of ‘sustainable intensification’

is being advocated by the world’s policy

makers: a system in which agricultural

yields are increased while minimising

adverse environmental impact. Agriculture

has inadvertent but major negative

consequences, including a severe impact

on biodiversity, human health and the

environment.”

Professor Wratten will employ a vital

new approach to the understanding and

enhancement of pollinator populations. It

is based on the recent discovery that the

pollen of some flower species does not have

an appropriate ratio of nutrients for bee

health, particularly with respect to sodium.

This element, along with others such as

potassium, calcium, magnesium, and iron,

are vital for the health of pollinators.

“Currently, when floral mixtures are

selected to improve bee health, no account

is taken of the pollen nutrient composition,”

he said.

Professor Wratten will analyse the

chemical composition of pollens in a range

of plant species to assess their suitability to

bees and other pollinating insects. He will

also develop science-based drinking water

for bees, supplemented with a balanced

mixture of soil-derived minerals to provide

the nutrients appropriate for bee health.

These research methods also have the

potential to increase bee resistance to

pathogens and parasites, including the

Varroa mite, thereby addressing some of

the causes of bee population decline.

This novel approach employed by

Professor Wratten can provide world-class

management protocols for bees and other

pollinating insects for deployment in bee

keeping, and beyond.

“The project will serve the burgeoning

bee economy in New Zealand, an industry

which currently has approximately one

million honey bee hives but which has

suffered somewhat from a lack of focused

research for optimal management,” he

said.

The ‘cream of the crop’ on Barton Fields

Positioned among other quality homes in the prestigious Barton

Fields, sits this grand 304m2 two storey home, with triple car

garaging & off-street parking for the boat or camper. Anyone

who enters this high spec’d property will be in awe of the high

studded ceiling, which adds to the feeling of space, & the

quality of fittings & finishing throughout. Boasting 2 living areas

downstairs, including a large open plan space which combines a

designer kitchen with WIP, 90cm oven, family living & a defined

dining area with lower stud to create intimate ambience. The

separate lounge can be closed off for quieter times in front of a

movie. The master suite is on the ground floor, with its en-suite

luxuriously finished with a tiled shower & under tile heating, plus

a generous WIR. This level also offers a separate laundry, sizable

study nook, walk-in linen room plus under stair storage. Heading

upstairs, you’ll find 3 further bedrooms, one essentially being

a second master suite or guest room with its own WIR & dual

access en-suite/family bathroom with undertile heating. The

icing on the cake is a very handy third living space at the top of

the landing, which can accommodate another TV, small couch or

2 loungers. So, whether you’re a professional couple who want

a stunning home just a short drive from the city, or if you need a

larger home for your family or to accommodate guests, then we

strongly urge you to view this one as it will be sold on or before

the deadline sale date of 6pm Wednesday 14th November. This

truly is the cream of the crop for those with impeccable taste.

NEW LISTING

PRICES VALLEY

2890 Christchurch Akaroa Road

Raise your family with the lifestyle you always dreamed

of: wide open paddocks, friendly chooks, pony rides,

character building farm chores and making huts. Enjoy

the warmer months outdoors in the beautiful gardens,

firing up the BBQ; stay snug in the winter with the wood

burner on wetback and large conservatory trapping the

daytime warmth. A perfectly placed spa pool on the

deck lets you marvel at the night sky all year round.

The solid construction of the 2+ bedroom cottage is

reinforced by new roofing, wiring and piling from its

relocation in the 1990's. More recent improvements

include an updated bathroom with wet room shower.

Whilst the cottage has been lovingly maintained, just

think of what could be created when you take

advantage of the lead lighting, built-in cabinets and

gorgeous wood panelling!

Is this your dream realised? Not many lifestyle properties

are set up to be so diverse in their offering and remain

an affordable option.

What to watch for when

the mode of sale changes

Buying a property is rarely straightforward,

which is no surprise given that it’s the

biggest financial commitment most people

ever make. When you combine big sums of

money and a considerable level of emotional

investment, even the simplest transaction

can be stressful. We hear a lot about the need

for buyers to do their homework, but there

are plenty of reasons for sellers to be careful

too.

If you’re selling a property with a real estate

agent, you must sign an agency agreement

that sets out all the terms and conditions

of your contract with them, including how

much commission they will earn from the

sale and how the property will be marketed.

That’s why it’s so important to get legal advice

before you sign an agency agreement. If it’s a

standard agreement, you usually retain the

right to sell the property privately but it’s a

good idea to check this. If you have signed

an agreement with an agency but decide for

whatever reason to opt for a DIY private

sale, you should double and triple-check

whether the agency agreement requires you

to pay commission to the real estate agent or

agency.

Most agencies use the Real Estate Authority

(REA) standard clauses in agency

agreements, which set out certain terms

and conditions for the contract and the

payment of commission. According to the

standard clauses, commission is payable if

the property is sold within the active term

of the agreement (normally 90 days) or if it

is sold privately within six months after the

end of the term to a buyer that the agent had

earlier introduced to the property. In other

words, if the buyer visits an open home run

by the real estate agent, and then enters into a

private sale with the seller within six months

after the end of the agreement, the seller is

still obliged to pay commission to the agent.

This can vary depending on whether it is

a sole or general agreement – talk to your

lawyer before you sign up.

Both sole agency agreements and general

agency agreements provide for commission

payments after the agreed period ends. If a

seller enters into a sale within six months of

the agency agreement ending with a buyer

who was introduced by the real estate agent

(or the agent facilitated the sale), then the

seller must pay the agent commission just as

they would have done when the agreement

was still current. So, if the agent brings a

potential buyer to a property in March, the

agency agreement expires in April, and the

seller and purchaser enter into a private

sale agreement in May, the seller will have

to pay the agent commission. The sale must

become unconditional (which is when all

the conditions of the sale and purchase

agreement have been met), but it doesn’t

matter whether it goes unconditional during

or after the agency period, or during or after

the six months following expiry, so long as

the sale and purchase agreement is entered

into within those timeframes. So, before you

sign an agency agreement, ask the agency

if it uses standard REA clauses. If it doesn’t

you may be exposed to more complicated

commission risks and you should seek legal

advice.

Generally, any issues arising from the agency

agreement/arrangements between the seller

and the real estate agent won’t have a direct

effect on the separate sale and purchase

agreement between the seller and the buyer.

However, the wrangling involved may create

headaches or delays that you as a buyer

wouldn’t want to be troubled with.

If you do decide that you’re really keen on a

property in this situation, seek legal advice

before getting involved (and especially

before signing anything). Remember too

that the REA can help you with questions

and complaints about sales involving

licensed real estate agents, but it’s unable to

step in if you have a problem with a private

and unlicensed seller.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Check building covenants

before you purchase

Developers have a vision for their

subdivisions, which include the size, style

and landscaping of individual homes.

Such requirements will be written up in

a separate building covenant document.

As these address what might be built and

how a property can be used, it is important

to check these out before signing up for a

piece of land.

Covenants are conditions relating to

land ownership and use. Given they are

legally binding documents, you should

familiarise yourself with what is required

in terms of the home you will build and

also future living. Your solicitor should

also check this document.

Building covenants usually require

building work to be carried out in a safe

and tidy manner, and in line with Council

building consent standards. They will

also stipulate that care is to be taken

during building to ensure that public

spaces, infrastructure and facilities near

the site are not damaged. The impact of

construction on others living in the estate

will also likely be addressed.

In relation to the home to be built,

building covenants may address:

• the design and size of the home,

positioning on the section and whether

more than one storey is permitted;

• building height as well as roof pitch;

• whether any outbuildings are permissible

along with their siting;

• landscaping where viewed from the

street;

• location and style of driveways and paths

within street view; and

• fencing – boundary and within the

property (including distance from the

front of the section).

Your house design (including colours,

roof style and cladding types) along with

a landscaping plan, should be submitted

to your developer for approval before

building commences. It is a good idea to

do this before submitting plans to Council,

just in case changes may need to be made.

Covenants extend beyond the building

period, having validity after the ownership

of and responsibility for the subdivision

passes to the local Council. It is therefore

worth considering whether your lifestyle

will be impacted on, by the rules of the

area you are looking to live in.

While most covenants are reasonable

and logical, some are more specific.

Architecturally designed homes and only

some exterior cladding types may be

required. Often caravans, motorhomes

or trucks are not to be parked in view of

the street. There have also been cases in

certain developments where no vehicles

are to be parked on the street.

To ensure covenants are adhered to

during the building and landscaping

process, developers request a bond.

This may be around the $2,000 mark,

something to be budgeted for. Once

developer’s approval and sign-off is

achieved, the money will be refunded,

unless there is damage to the footpath,

vehicle crossing, curbing or some other

aspect of public land, which has not been

remediated. In such a case, the bond

may be forfeited to reimburse the cost of

putting this right.

Checking out building covenants before

purchasing land will avoid any surprises

further down the track.

Fencing

styles will be

addressed within

the covenants.

Covenants

determine house

design, size and

height.

Protecting your family’s privacy and

security when holding an open home

When selling a property, many people

are uncomfortable with the idea of

strangers looking through their house

when they’re not present. However,

holding an open home is often the best

way to show off the place to potential

buyers.

Welcoming house hunters (and let’s

be honest, a few nosy neighbours) to a

property does come with privacy and

security risks that vendors should be

aware of – and plan for.

“It’s natural for sellers to have concerns

about privacy and security – after all,

you’re inviting complete strangers into

your family’s home,” says Real Estate

Authority (REA) Chief Executive Kevin

Lampen-Smith.

Lampen-Smith suggests sellers prepare

by taking note of any items of sentimental

or monetary value that should be removed

from the property.

“Think about items that could easily be

slipped into a pocket or handbag, such as

jewellery, silverware, small electronics or

even the prescription medication stored

in your bathroom cabinet. Tucking them

away in your sock drawer or under your

bed won’t do the trick,” Lampen-Smith

says.

Something that’s often overlooked by

sellers opening their house to potential

buyers is the risk of identity theft. It might

sound far-fetched, but sellers who leave

important documents like passports,

bank statements or credit card receipts

lying around are leaving themselves

vulnerable. Lampen-Smith recommends

these sorts of documents be tidied away

and stored somewhere secure.

Next, do a digital sweep of the property.

The family PC or office desktop should

be switched off and password protected.

USB sticks or hard drives that are loaded

with personal information should also be

stored securely.

“While this might sound like plain

old common sense to many, I’ve heard

of a seller leaving a post-it note with the

house alarm code right next to the alarm,

for anyone to come back and deactivate

later,” Lampen-Smith recalls.

Sellers should talk to their real estate

agent or salesperson about how the actual

open home will be conducted.

“Ask if there will be a sign-in register,

where visitors provide their name and

contact information when they arrive at

the showing. This is a helpful tool for the

agent when it comes to following up with

potential buyers, and, in the case that

something is damaged or stolen during

the open home, the information can be

passed onto police,” Lampen-Smith says.

The agent is required to be present at

the viewing and shouldn’t leave potential

buyers alone at the property. Ideally,

the agent should accompany visitors as

they tour the house, but this isn’t always

possible if the showing gets busy. Sellers

could ask that a second person from the

real estate agency be on-site during the

open home, to greet visitors at the door,

ask them to sign in and wait until the

agent is free to show them through.

Sellers who still feel uneasy about

having an open home could ask the agent

to show the property ‘by appointment

only’ to potential buyers.

“There’s no law saying you must have

an open home. Remember, it’s your

house and ultimately you don’t have to do

anything you’re uncomfortable with,” says

Lampen-Smith.
