Another

bus trial

planned in

Leeston,

Darfield

• By Emily O’Connell

TWO NEW bus services could be

trialled for six months in Selwyn,

starting in January.

Environment Canterbury and

the district council are behind

the idea and are seeking feedback

from residents on the two weekday

services.

One would be between Leeston

and Christchurch, and the other

between Darfield and Christchurch.

The proposed fares range from $2

to $3.90 for children and $3.85 to

$7.50 for adults.

District council asset manager

transportation Andrew Mazey

said it understands there is a need

to improve the public transport

connection to Christchurch in the

growing communities.

It comes after Red Bus ceased its

bus trial service in Darfield and

West Melton in March due to low

patronage.

The district council will be

covering the $60,000 budget for the

trials.

Leeston Community Committee

chairman Lloyd Clausen supports

the trial and says it “would be great”

for the area.

“We [the committee] did a survey

10 or 15 years ago and everyone

was dead keen to get it,” he said.

NO SURPRISES for guessing what people

in Rolleston think of the fact their town

has made a Facebook page called S**t

Towns of New Zealand.

The Facebook page though has got what

it probably has hoped for – lots of reaction,

including our two-page spread on pages 4-5.

It would be fair to say Rolleston is a fairly maligned place,

even within the district. But it is the urban heartbeat of Selwyn,

sprawling in all directions and bringing with it the benefits and

issues other towns and small cities have.

We profile Gillian Wilson in the Our People segment this

week (pages 30-31).

Gillian is well-known in the Lincoln area and as we discover

she has a fairly interesting sports background.

Fire rages, homes at risk

A few good reasons why Rolleston

Rolleston has made it

onto the S**t Towns of

New Zealand Facebook

page. And as expected, it

hasn’t gone down well with

people who live there. Emily

Naomi Hooft

O’Connell reports

A SENSE of community,

affordable land and a place that

doesn’t have “everything” – these

are just a few things Rolleston

residents love about their town.

The comments comes after

the S**t Towns of New Zealand

Facebook page profiled Rolleston

last week in

a post that

received more

than 2000

comments.

“Plonked

on the

appropriatelynamed

Canterbury

Plains, Rolleston

is a mind-numbingly featureless

town, completely lacking in

beaches, hills, rivers, bush, jobs,

or things to do – the missionary

position of towns,” it read.

Selwyn Times visited Rolleston

on Thursday to see what

residents really thought about

their town and what they made

of the Facebook post.

Naomi Hooft disagreed with

the post, saying the town has “a

lot going” for it and she would

definitely refer to it as

“the town of the future.”

“We’ve got a huge

amount of community.

It’s not just about children

and soccer mums – you

can call that what you

want, but basically what

it is is a community,” she

said.

The review poked fun

at Rolleston’s increasing

population, saying “despite

Marijke

Etwell

decades of stagnation, Rolleston’s

population has boomed since

2011, when it became New

Zealand’s pre-eminent

post-earthquake refugee

camp.”

One of the “refugees”

is Marijke Etwell, who

moved to Rolleston three

years ago because of the

affordable land prices.

She found the review

“hilarious.”

“I like it here, I like the

small town . . . I seem to

be happy at work, my husband’s

happy at work, my daughter’s

happy at school and there’s so

much happening,” Mrs Etwell

said.

When asked

what she

thought of the

post, Rolleston

resident Ann

Mason said it

was “s**t, quite

frankly.”

Although she Ann Mason

didn’t “go out a

lot,” she liked the family aspect

of the town.

Rolleston

resident

Robyn

McKenzie

“totally”

disagreed with

the post, saying

the district

council has

“really good

foresight” in

providing facilities for

the community. “I just think this

is a great town to live in,” she

said.

Although she

found the post

“quite harsh,”

Logan Pollock

admitted there is

not a lot to do in

the “beautiful”

town. “It’s

quite nice to

have somewhere

where there isn’t everything to

do,” she said.

Rolleston

resident

JP Xitlec said

Rolleston is

“nice” but he

does agree with

points made in

who lives in

shared the post

on his public

commenting

“any publicity is

The review also targets the

town’s lack of a main street.

“Like the majority of its

it said. Once

It’s proposed

the Leeston

The Darfield service would go

via Kirwee and West Melton to

the city.

With “a lot” of people in the

area working in Christchurch,

Springston Community

Committee chairman Rupert

Tipples believes the services

“could be” well-used.

He said if he couldn’t drive

into Christchurch himself, the

bus would be “invaluable.”

Doyleston Community

Committee member Jack

Pearcy is supportive of having

a bus service through the area

but believes it should go from

Southbridge to Christchurch.

“The bus, while it was

running, always left

Southbridge. What are they

thinking?” he said.

Mr Pearcy said the Doyleston

bus stop’s popularity would

depend on what time the bus

“went through it.”

The Selwyn Youth Council

ran a successful project called

Selwyn Link, where buses

travelled between Southbridge

and Darfield and Darfield to

Southbridge, via Rolleston.

It transported a total of

Fire rages, homes at risk

Pupils spend

holidays

reading

•From page 1

The aim is to promote reading

to prevent the “summer slide”

pupils can experience when

they return to school after the

holidays.

“It can take six weeks for

teachers to bring the students

back to the levels they were at the

previous year,” Mrs Morfett said.

A letter was sent to parents

who have pupils returning to the

school next year, and they chose

whether to sign their children up

to the programme.

The pupils will receive a bag

with four books, as well as an

audio book, an e-book, activities,

games and other “goodies” before

they finish school for the year.

Mrs Morfett said the idea

is that pupils read at least one

book a week and then when the

holidays finish, they would return

the bags and books to the school.

She said the initiative has

received support from businesses

in the area, as well as Selwyn

libraries.

•To sign a Rolleston School

pupil up to the reading

programme, email library@

school is asking for $2

Stadium costs discussions wanted

Mixed views

from Selwyn

residents

• By Emily O’Connell

A PROPOSAL for Selwyn

ratepayers to contribute

towards the operating costs of

Christchurch’s planned sports

and events area has received a

mixed reaction.

Committee for Canterbury

has suggested councils in the

region make a contribution to

the stadium.

The

committee,

which is

not directly

involved with

the stadium

development,

wants to start a

Gary Doyle

discussion on

how costs above

its revenue

could be covered.

The Crown and Christchurch

City Council have already

committed $473 million to the

project, which is hoped to be

built within five years.

Weedons Residents’ Association

secretary Gary Doyle believes

Selwyn residents shouldn’t

contribute as they’ve got their

own facilities to “take care of.”

“People from Ashburton,

Waimakariri, Hurunui,

Christchurch, they all come

and use our facilities but they

don’t contribute, we don’t

expect them to. Why should

we be contributing to the ones

[facilities] in there?” he said.

Mr Doyle said Christchurch

will see the benefits of the

stadium in its hotels, motels,

cafes and bars so “they should be

paying for it.”

His views were backed by

Hororata Citizens Committee

chairwoman Margaret Cross,

who didn’t think Selwyn

residents should be paying for

something in Christchurch.

“They [Christchurch] wouldn’t

pay for anything we have in our

district, I wouldn’t think. That’s

a bit cheeky,” she said.

However, Dunsandel Community

Committee chairman Nigel

Barnett doesn’t think “anybody

should be putting money into

the operating costs” of the

stadium.

“To me, the whole purpose of

building a stadium is to make it

a multi-purpose thing and the

running costs should be borne

by the actual users. So that’s a

bridge too far at this stage,” he

said.

Tai Tapu Community Association

chairman Gerald Carter

said his personal view was that

Selwyn residents should be contributing

to the stadium as they

will benefit also.

“In theory, Waimakariri

FORK OUT: An

idea for Selwyn

residents to

contribute to

the operating

costs of

Christchurch’s

stadium has

received mixed

reviews from

people living in

the district.

and Selwyn should amalgamate

with Christchurch. Well parts

of Selwyn, Selwyn’s a huge district

of course and some of

it may not be appropriate,” he

said.

Rolleston Residents’

Association chairwoman

Leonie MacLachlan said she

couldn’t make a comment as she

didn’t know enough about the

proposal.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

without seeing a business

case and understanding the

operating model, it was difficult

to speculate on who should

contribute to the operating

costs.

“I would hope that a proper

operational model would

support itself,” he said.

Regenerate Christchurch is responsible for developing the

regeneration plan for the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor and has

considered thousands of ideas from the community, as well as

surveys, technical reports and studies.

We are now pleased to invite written comments on the

following documents from 14 November 2018:

• The Draft Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan, with the primary purpose

of enabling short, medium and long-term uses of approximately 600ha of land within the

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor, including the area previously known as the residential red zone.

• The Proposed Partial Revocation of the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan and the

Proposed Partial Revocation of the Land Use Recovery Plan, which would, in combination

(if approved) result in the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan being the sole

Regeneration/Recovery Plan applying to the regeneration area.

Disposable takeaway coffee cups go in your red lid rubbish bin. They are lined with

Changes at The Willows

A DEDICATED motorhome

camping area, a trail bike

area and more access

for four-wheel-drive

enthusiasts are among the

changes taking place at The

Willows in the next few

months.

Environment Canterbury,

along with the district

council, are creating

new recreational facilities.

The Willows, at the end

of Thompsons Rd, off Old

West Coast Rd, is being developed

for non-motorised

activities. There are plans

for a dedicated motorhome

camping area with the

New Zealand Motor Caravan

Association.

In turn, Weedons

Forest will be available

for a range of off-road

activities, including trail

biking.

Trail bike riders will

have a dedicated area at the

Weedons Ross Rd end of

the park which will link up

with 28km of further trails

downstream in Miners

Forest to Haul Rd.

Four-wheel-drive enthusiasts

can access the

and Weedons Ross Rd.

Fully self-contained

freedom campers will be

welcome for up to two

weeks at a time on the

bank, west of Intake Rd

up to the gorge. People

can also camp west of

Diversion Rd on the north

bank.

The parks will remain

open and construction

will be ongoing during

the summer. Woods asked

people to be mindful of

that.

“Signage will be in

place and we want

everyone to take the time

to read the information

available to them,” Mr

Woods said.

Completion for the

project is earmarked for

“Potentially it’s quite exciting,

Dumped rubbish frustrates residents

• By Anan Zaki

FRUSTRATION IS mounting

over rubbish bags being dumped

on roads.

A number of residents

went on Facebook to report that

black rubbish bags have been

dumped in rural roads near

Prebbleton since November last

year.

Prebbleton resident

Miriam Martin said on most

occasions the bags are full of

discarded noodles or other food

scraps.

But household rubbish has

also been dumped.

Last week household rubbish

was found dumped on Tosswill

Rd.

“It’s a bit weird as to where

they are coming from,” Dr Martin

said.

The rubbish bags were also

seen in the Quarry View subdivision,

she said.

The rubbish is also only

found on quiet rural roads, she

said. “They are obviously going

through the back roads from

Halswell or to Halswell,” Dr

Martin said.

She notified the district council

about the rubbish last week.

“The food scraps are attracting

flocks of birds, rats and mice.

It’s a health hazard,” Dr Martin

said.

Others businesses pay to have

their rubbish cleared she said.

“It’s criminal behaviour,” Dr

Martin said.

“We’re not allowed to drop

rubbish on the side of the road

for good reason. You don’t have

a right to pollute other people’s

property, even if it is the council’s.”

Said a district douncil

spokesman: “We have received

complaints about rubbish being

dumped in the Prebbleton area,

and have removed it once we

have been made aware of the

dumping.”

Dr Martin urged more people

to report rubbish dumping and

ADDING THE Hororata Hall

The district council’s property

and this assessment along with “a

“To confirm that the recommendation

and defensible,” he said.

The spokesman said landowners

have been advised of the peer

review and will be informed of

the outcome early next year.

“Once we know the outcomes

of the review, the council will

also advise the landowners what

it means for their heritage item/

Landlords

Insulate against fines!

By now, landlords, property managers

and most tenants will be aware of the

changes to the Residential Tenancy Act

concerning home insulation, requiring all

rental properties to have adequate ceiling

and under floor insulation installed, where

practicable, by 30 June 2019.

However, many landlords and property

managers may not be aware they could be

liable for a $4,000 fine (per non-compliant

property), payable to the tenants, if their

investment properties do not meet the

standard in time. With an estimated 125,000

rental properties still requiring better

insulation, these owners and property

managers are being urged to take action now

to avoid the impending rush.

Local long-established insulation specialists

EnergySmart are a selected service

provider for the government’s EECA (Energy

Efficiency and Conservation Authority)

insulation programme, and currently offer

both landlords and homeowners great

savings to better insulate their properties.

The company offers free property

assessments with an insulation Compliance

Certificate for the property if the existing

insulation already complies. If insulation

is required, they provide a Compliance

Report and quote to complete the work.

Extended home energy assessments are

also available, covering heat pumps and LED

lights if required.

EnergySmart are one of the largest

manufacturers and installers of insulation

products in New Zealand and supply a

range of home solutions including their

own insulation brands Terra Lana wool and

PolyKing polyester, as well as supplying Pink

Batts fibreglass insulation. All carry a 50

year warranty.

Their installers are fully trained, clean

and tidy, and their work is audited both

internally as well as by the government, so

you are assured of the highest standard of

workmanship.

EnergySmart has easy payment options

including no deposit and 36 months

interest free, meaning you can insulate your

property from only $12 per week. Landlords

can insulate now, take advantage of current

discounts, and beat the rush.

While insulation in rental properties is now

a legal requirement for landlords, they will

also have the satisfaction of knowing their

tenants are living in a warmer healthier, more

energy-efficient home, and consequently

are more likely to stay.

assessment and insulation options,

Southern ChiropraCtiC

Chiropractic treatment promotes

wellness and happiness

Southern Chiropractic specialist André

Grob loves nothing more than to help

people.

With 17 years of experience treating

people with a range of spinal problems,

he has a deep understanding of the

value and benefits that his chiropractic

practice can offer clients experiencing

pain.

A high percentage of the patients

André treats suffer from lower back

and neck pain, followed closely by mid

back pain. He says some pain such

as headaches or shoulder pain often

comes from other places, and it’s

about finding and treating the source.

André believes that not only does

chiropractic treatment help relieve pain

but when applied regularly it also helps

promote an overall feeling of wellness

and happiness.

“When clients first come to the clinic,”

says André, “the first thing I do is to

take the time to find out what the

problem is. The aim is to treat the pain

and make them comfortable.” Once

the patient is better, he says it’s then

up to the patient to decide if they want

to come back for further or regular

chiropractic treatment. This could

be weekly, monthly or bi-annually

depending on what they want.

André says that in the USA chiropractic

treatment is listed third among the

most beneficial natural therapies

available. Used as an ongoing

preventative treatment, it offers a

holistic approach to overall wellbeing.

Keeping up with the latest trends and

developments in his field is vital to

André; however, he says it’s about

what works best for his clients. He

offers not only hands-on manipulation

of the spine but also soft tissue

massage, which some patients prefer.

He also utilises the modality of laser

treatment to assist the traditional

approach and an activator instrument,

which can be used more precisely

instead of hands.

Over the years André has successfully

treated an extensive client base

with ages ranging from school-age

children through to 90+ year-olds. He

enjoys the down-to-earth professional

relationships he has with each patient

and says delivering the chiropractic

service and getting people better is

what it’s all about.

Also, if he can’t help, he will refer his

patients to a professional who can.

If you have back pain and are looking for a committed, passionate, and caring chiropractic practitioner, call André today on 03 322 1432. Based in halswell at 3 Kennedys Bush Road,

Southern Chiropractic also runs a clinic every Tuesday in Ashburton.

Government taken to task over motorway

Fire rages, homes at risk

MP for

Selwyn

Amy Adams

writes

about the

Government

axing a plan

to upgrade

and four-lane the highway

between Christchurch and

Ashburton

AS MY electorate office is located

on Main South Rd in Templeton

I get to witness first-hand the

volume of traffic on this main

arterial route.

Unfortunately, I also get to

hear sirens from emergency

vehicles making their way to

accidents on this stretch of road

all too often.

While the opening of the

second stage of the Christchurch

Southern Motorway while help

eases safety and congestion

problems at the Templeton

end of State Highway 1,

unfortunately these issues will

persist for the remainder of the

route to the south of the new

motorway extension.

This is why National had

planned to upgrade and

four-lane the entire highway

between Christchurch and

Ashburton, but this plan has

been axed by the current

Government.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency’s recent announcement

that it will consult on a proposal

to install median barriers on

sections of the highway is a

poor substitute for what is really

needed which is a widened fourlane

highway with oncoming

traffic separated.

As my colleague Rangitata MP

Andrew Falloon and I recently

informed the Transport and

Infrastructure Select Committee

at Parliament the upgrade of this

road is essential to ensure the

safety of those travelling on the

road and to reduce congestion

and travel times for those

commuting and transporting

goods throughout our region.

We pointed out that the

demand on this road has

grown significantly in the past

decade due to the rapid growth

of Selwyn and increasing

international tourist numbers.

We also noted that the strong

local economy along with the

success of Timaru’s PrimePort

and developments such as the

inland port at Rolleston have all

contributed to more and more

trucks travelling on this road.

I noted my particular concern

about the vulnerability of the

Rakaia Bridge which acts as

a bottleneck and has in the

past resulted in closure of the

highway.

Mr Falloon emphasised that

this road has become the second

most dangerous in the South

Island with 19 deaths and 109

serious injuries occurring on

UPGRADE: Work

is progressing

on the $195

million Southern

Motorway project.

this stretch of highway between

January 1, 2010, and March 31,

2018.

We urged the Government to

take into account these dreadful

statistics and the detrimental

effect of congestion on this

route for our regional economic

growth.

We hope the Government will

listen and reinvest some of the

money it has stripped from our

regional roading budget into this

vital project.

Wild russell lupin a pest in Canterbury

Environment Canterbury

regional support principal

resource management

adviser biosecurity

Laurence Smith responds

to a Selwyn Times article

about brightening your

backyard with lupins

IN RESPONSE to your article

of November 14 encouraging

people to plant lupins in their

gardens, I wanted to provide

some context.

Wild russell lupin is, in fact,

declared as a pest in the Canterbury

Regional Pest Management

Plan. Our priority is to contain

existing infestations in Canterbury’s

braided rivers and prevent

impacts of spread between

properties.

Wild russell lupin rapidly

invades our shingly braided river

systems, forming large dense

stands, providing habitat for animals

which prey on endangered

bird species. Once established,

plants cause silt and gravel to

build up, invading open shingle

and eliminating bird nesting

habitats. Each year a significant

investment is made to protect

our braided rivers and wetlands

from weed pests.

Declaring wild russell lupin

as a pest was the outcome of a

joint meeting between Federated

Farmers (high-country section),

Department of Conservation

and Environment Canterbury

staff, and subsequent submissions

to the RPMP review. The

intent of the RPMP is to stop

further spread of wild russell

lupins into areas currently

clear of them by requiring a

setback from rivers and property

boundaries. Only the lupins inside

these setbacks are declared

as pests.

ECan is gathering information

to establish the full extent

of wild russell lupin to assist

with formulating control

programmes aimed at very low

incidence sites, and we will be

working with people in these

areas to reduce and/or prevent

its further spread.

management of lupins, go

First week on the

job and baby takes

her first steps

26 th november– 2 nd december 2018

$

8 99 kg

VITTORIA HAS taken

her first independent steps.

And all five of them were

away from me.

I don’t mean that in

some metaphorical sense,

they were literally away

from me and she hasn’t

walked again . . . yet.

While we played in the

hall, my wife Laura called

her over and she turned

away from me and walked

the half metre over to her

mum.

Laura’s proud as punch

and I’m super-excited

about what this means for

my time as a stay-at-homedad.

However, I’m still

jealous that all five of her

steps so far have been away

from me. Dumb, huh?

Luckily, I did not have

time to spend moping –

November 13 was B-Day.

My first official stay-athome-dad

day.

It was like D-Day, except

without the guns, the

soldiers, the beach landing

or other adults.

I think I did really well,

but it showcased what I

think will be a hurdle for

me.

I’d had a couple of

training days over the

weekend as Laura went

out with friends and to

organise a few things

before starting back at

work.

On the Friday, I took

Vittoria for a walk, got a

slice of pizza and chased

some ducks.

All good stuff in lieu of

baby times at the library,

which would’ve been on if

it wasn’t Show Day.

However, the weather

last week put walks out

of the question and there

were still no free activities

on nearby.

It forced me to think of

something to do. Before I

could have just followed

Laura’s routine.

But that’s just it, it’s

Laura’s routine.

Now that I’m in charge

(in theory, Vittoria tends

to dispute that) on the

home front, organising

outings and thinking up

things to do is on me.

VITTORIA

& Matt

In stereotypical male

fashion, I decided on a

trip to get some bits to do

some repairs at home – fix

all Vittoria’s broken bibs

using hammered in snap

fasteners.

But I wonder if I’ll

manage to keep conjuring

ideas to keep us occupied

before I hit a wall of sorts

and spend every day

there’s no activity at home

in my pyjamas being hit in

the head with toys.

More to the point, I

hope those ideas can

include other grown-ups

so I can sneak in the odd

conversation that doesn’t

include the phrases “please

don’t cry” and “eat that” or

“the cat doesn’t like being

climbed on.”

•Former Star Media

journalist Matt Salmons

has become a stayat-home

dad. We will

follow his journey

weekly.

West Melton’s tough kids

About 150 West

Melton School

pupils took part

in the Tough

Kid Challenge

at South New

Brighton on

Thursday. The

event, which

was run by Sport

Canterbury,

had an obstacle

course that

included wading

through a muddy

estuary, jumping

in water and being

hosed down by a

fire brigade.

Energy waste solutions sought

LINCOLN Envirotown has

hosted a meeting for businesses

interested in a Selwyn

Responsible Business Network

in Rolleston.

Businesses were invited to a

social occasion and treated to

two presentations which examined

concepts of sustainable

practices relating to power use

and waste management.

Many of the ideas discussed

looked at the cost-cutting possibilities

that result from adopting

more sustainable practices,

while others emphasised general

environmental concerns.

Energy Efficiency and Conservation

Authority programme

partnership manager Richard

Briggs surprised the audience

with the statistic that businesses

typically waste up to 20 per cent

of the energy they use.

Most solutions to this problem

are low or no cost solutions

which look to making current

processes more efficient before

looking at any replacement of

infrastructure.

Mr Briggs strongly suggested

businesses should start looking

at the possibilities of making

savings by undertaking an

energy audit to really assess how

much power is being used and

where. Details of funding bodies

which could help with longterm

solutions were also shared.

The second presentation

by district council water and

recycling manager Andrew

Boyd gave some insight into

the recycling situation around

the world and its impact on

Selwyn.

He explained how the old

model of using resources to

produce the things we need and

then discarding them as waste,

cannot be sustained.

The concept of the circular

economy whereby resources

are used in production and

then reused was examined

with numerous examples cited.

Mr Boyd also advised on good

recycling habits and gave an

insight into the difficulties of

the processes.

Lincoln Envirotown would

like to thank the district council

for supporting the initiative.

Bell returned to Springston church

• By Emily O’Connell

THE MISSING church bell

from St Mary’s in Springston

has been found.

Spokesman Neville Benny

said a man found the 150-yearold

cast iron bell on the banks

of the Waimakariri River about

a month ago while jetboating.

A relative of the man then

read about the bell two weeks

later in Selwyn Times and let the

finder know, who then got in

touch with the church.

Mr Benny said the bell, which

went missing sometime between

late September and early

October, has been burnt and

will need “cleaning up” before it

is put back in its place.

Mr Benny is unsure what

exactly happened to the bell but

said whoever stole it may have

thought it was brass and could

have been trying to “melt it

down.”

BACKYARD CRITTERS

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.

WOLF SPIDERS are

one the most numerous

invertebrate predators in many

environments, but particularly

in grasslands where they are

viewed as being beneficial.

As many as 27 species of wolf

spiders or lycosidae are known

in New Zealand.

The most common New

Zealand species found, usually

in modified grasslands such as

pastures, gardens and lawns, is

Anoteropsis hilaris.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Wolf spiders are active hunters

CREEPY CRAWLY:

Anoteropsis hilaris is the

most common New Zealand

species of wolf spiders. They

are usually found in modified

grasslands such as pastures,

gardens and lawns. ​

They are 8-12mm in length,

dark brown in colour with pale

yellow through the middle of

their body.

This species live in a small

burrow, do not build webs, and

females can often be observed

carrying a white egg sac around

with them.

With good eyesight they are

active hunters by day, preying

on a range of species, sometimes

larger than themselves.

This spider is commonly parasitised

by a spider wasp which

paralyses the spider and lays a

single egg in it, which develops

inside its body until death.

SUMMER

in

SELWYN

is back!

Check your letterbox this week for your events guide

Boost Out family celebration

We’re celebrating the end of our youth programme BOOST2018 and

we want you to join us!

BOOST Out is an action-packed evening featuring food trucks, a

skate jam, graffiti art and live entertainment from Selwyn youth bands.

This is an event for the whole family. It will be hosted in the

Rolleston Reserve at 6–8.30pm on Friday 7 December. Don’t miss

out on the fun!

BOOST2018 took place during the October school holidays and

featured a range of events, activities and workshops to entertain,

empower and develop Selwyn’s youth.

Over 60 events are coming to the district as part of the 2018/19 Summer in Selwyn event

programme, kicking off in December and continuing until late March. Selwyn residents will receive

their Summer in Selwyn events guide in the mail this week.

There is something for everyone to enjoy this summer. Council-run events include two outdoor

movies at Lincoln and Leeston and two drive-in movies at Rolleston and Darfield, starting with the

Christmas classic movie Elf on Sunday 16 December.

Pool Parties will include a special Christmas Pool Party at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre, as well as

parties at Darfield, Sheffield and Southbridge community pools. The ever popular Teddy Bears’

Picnic will return to Rolleston Community Centre and Rolleston Reserve with jam-packed family fun.

Picnic in the Park events and Summer Skate/Scooter Jams are coming to eight locations around

the district, while a new event – Summer 3X3 Basketball Jam – encourages anyone to jump into a

game and have a go.

Other entertainment includes live music at local parks with A Month of Sundays in February.

Residents can bring a picnic and relax while listening to an outstanding line-up of our local

talented musicians at the Lincoln Green.

A number of Selwyn District Libraries events are also taking place over summer including craft

and story book workshops, Summer Reading Bingo and games challenges, spurring on multigenerational

fun.

A great range of community-organised events are on offer too, including Christmas parades, fêtes

and picnics, and fitness-related events.

For a list of Summer in Selwyn events, visit facebook.com/summerinselwyn or selwyn.govt.nz/events.

Brought to you by Selwyn District Council and proudly sponsored by Spectrum Lighting and

Sound, Faringdon and New World Rolleston.

Community pools open for summer season

Darfield, Sheffield and Southbridge Community Pools are now open for summer. Currently these pools

are open from 3.30–7pm but will be open from 1–7pm over the summer school holidays.

This summer, season passes to Sheffield pool are available for $70. These are available from committee

member Rachel Benny, phone 027 613 4716. Casual swims are $2 at Sheffield pool, payable to the

lifeguard staff upon entry. Information on admission prices and activities at Darfield and Southbridge is

available at these pools.

For more information visit selwyn.govt.nz/communitypools.

Proposed trial of bus services

for Darfield and Leeston

The trial of two new bus services for the Selwyn district is being

proposed.

The Council and Environment Canterbury are asking for feedback

on two proposed trial bus services; one between Leeston and

Christchurch, and the other between Darfield and Christchurch.

Environment Canterbury Senior Manager Public Transport Stewart

Gibbon says they need to know if the community agrees there is a

need for a daily commuter service.

“As part of its Long-Term Plan, Selwyn District Council has

committed to funding one return bus service daily during the

working week, on a trial basis, as long as the community agrees

there is a need for such a service, and is prepared to support it,”

says Gibbon.

“We are asking for input from the community on if they would use

such a service, as well as the times and pick up/drop off locations

for the trial services that would best meet their needs.”

Selwyn District Council Asset Manager Transportation Andrew

Mazey says the services area a response to growing communities.

“There is a need for improved connectivity to Christchurch for

those living in Darfield and Leeston that doesn’t just rely on using

private motor vehicles. These routes will provide a number of people

with an alternative way to connect to Christchurch for a range of

purposes like education, health services and employment.”

It is proposed that the Leeston service would travel to central

Christchurch via Doyleston, Irwell and Springston. The Darfield

service would go via Kirwee and West Melton to the city. The trial

services are intended to start from January 2019 for a six-month

trial period.

Brochures with feedback forms will be delivered to residents this

week and will also be available at both the Leeston and Darfield

libraries and service centres. People can also complete the survey

online at metroinfo.co.nz. The survey is open until Tuesday 11

December.

Rolleston Town Centre

Rolleston Library and Community Centre

Update November 2018

Te Ara Ātea – our new library and community centre

Dynamic public spaces to

complement library

Planning and design is now well advanced for the public spaces at the heart of Rolleston’s new

town centre.

The Council’s design team expects to lodge resource consents before the end of the year for the

first stage of the project, which will include the library, town square and key roading elements.

A central element of the plan is the open public space that will connect the town centre to Te Ara

Ātea – the library and community centre.

The area has been designed so that people can move freely between the indoor environment

of Te Ara Ātea and outdoor spaces that encourage community gathering, activities, recreation

and reflection.

A main promenade will run between Tennyson Street entrance and the Wordsworth Street

extension, offering pedestrians a leisurely walk through landscaped gardens, comfortable seating

areas, grassy ‘urban islands’, outdoor kids’ educational zone and even a vege garden.

Te Ara Ātea will open onto a spacious town square which will provide areas for civic and

community gatherings, markets, events, performances and informal community interaction.

Among the distinctive features of the town square are a suspended overhead lighting system

to create a unique night-time environment, raised gardens with seating, shade sails and water

features. There are also spaces for tables and chairs outside the proposed hospitality and retail

premises adjacent to the library and community centre.

As well as pedestrian space, the promenade will also accommodate cyclists and limited

service access for vehicles. Initially part of the promenade and laneways may be constructed

with asphalt, with permanent decorative paving installed once later stages of building

construction are completed.

Selwyn and Rolleston’s new library and community centre will be

known as Te Ara Ātea – after the name was formally gifted to the

Council by Te Taumutu Rūnanga.

The name means “the unobstructed trail to the world and beyond” and

reflects the centre’s role as a place for learning, gathering, connecting,

exploring and celebrating the district’s heritage and people.

The new library and community centre is a landmark project in the

proposed Rolleston town centre, centred on what is currently part of

Rolleston Reserve. Construction of Te Ara Ātea is expected to start in

mid-2019.

Te Taumutu Rūnanga Chairperson Julie Robilliard says the rūnanga is

delighted to be supporting the Selwyn community with the new name.

“It is with great pleasure that Te Taumutu Rūnanga gifts the name of

Te Ara Ātea to the new Rolleston Library and Community Centre,”

she says.

“Meaning the unobstructed trail to the world and beyond, Te Ara Ātea

is particularly appropriate because the Rolleston area was part of a

network of ancient trails. We know that the people of the district will

enjoy their new library and community centre and we are pleased to

support the community by gifting this name”.

Selwyn mayor Sam Broughton says the Council has been working

closely with Te Taumutu as a key partner during the development and

design stages of the new library and community centre.

“We’re privileged that the rūnanga has gifted the name Te Ara Ātea

– which is so appropriate for a community facility where we will

celebrate our history but also look confidently to the future.

“The idea of exploring, challenging and finding different

pathways to learning and discovery is exactly what this exciting

new space is about.”

About the Rolleston Town Centre Master Plan

A master plan for Rolleston town centre was adopted by the Council in 2014 after extensive

community consultation. Key elements of the plan have also been confirmed through Long-Term

Plans and other consultation. The plan sets out a vision for a town centre, located on what is

currently part of Rolleston Reserve, which will be a vibrant and engaging destination for Rolleston

and the wider Selwyn district.

For background and to view the Master Plan documents: www.selwyn.govt.nz/yourtownyourfuture.

What’s coming next?

The Council will lodge resource consent applications before the

end of the year for the first stage of the town centre – including

the Te Ara Ātea building, town square and promenade and key

roading developments.

Preparatory site works are expected to begin in early 2019,

transportation projects in April and construction in June.

People-centred streetscape for town centre

Plans for the roading network around the new Rolleston town centre

reveal a streetscape that is people-centred.

The roads around Te Ara Ātea and the adjacent civic and commercial

spaces will be predominantly low-speed, attractively landscaped,

cycle and pedestrian-friendly, and with provision for both on and offstreet

car parking.

Consultation on the original Rolleston town centre master plan, and

subsequent Long-Term Plans, confirmed the development of a lowspeed

thoroughfare along the Wordsworth Street extension, which will

run through the commercial and retail areas adjacent to Te Ara Ātea,

connecting from Moore Street to Markham Way at Tennyson Street.

Retaining through traffic helps ensure the area remains active and

vibrant. The street will be sympathetic with the wider town centre

design, including wide berms to accommodate tree planting and

greenery, small areas of garden, attractive lighting, seating and

street furniture.

Pedestrian pathways will be generous, with attractive paving, and

the 6.4 metre road width is designed to accommodate two lanes of

traffic. The design will incorporate traffic calming in the form of raised

crossings in concrete pavers, which encourage vehicles to reduce

speeds at locations where pedestrian cross the road.

Car parking is provided along the road, and there is also right-angle

parking opposite the Scouts hall, alongside the reserve.

Tennyson Street, between Moore Street and Rolleston Drive, will

undergo a major transformation – becoming Rolleston’s new high

street. It will also be a 30km/hr zone, with attractive landscaping and

street furniture, traffic calming features and wide pathways.

Te Ara Ātea, the Rolleston Library and Community Centre, will be

the landmark feature on the western side of Tennyson Street, along

with the adjacent commercial and retail areas extending towards

Rolleston Drive.

This will be complemented by additional commercial

development on the on the eastern side, including retail and

hospitality premises already under development by private

developer Jatinder Developments.

Multiple car parking options will be available in the vicinity of

the town centre. On street car parking will be available on both

Wordsworth Street and Tennyson Street. The Council will also

develop off-street parking at the Moore Street end of Rolleston

Reserve (See plan C1 – 76 spaces), behind the planned shops on the

eastern side of Tennyson Street (C2 – 45 spaces), and on two sites

on the southern side of the Wordsworth Street extension (C3 – 137

and C4 – 124 spaces).

Australasian driving title for former Darfield student

CHAMPION: Sheree Tomlinson won the Australasian Young

Drivers Championship. ​

FORMER Darfield High School

student Sheree Tomlinson won

the Australasian Young Drivers

Championship in Brisbane on

Saturday night.

Tomlinson sealed her victory

with a second placing on Parisian

Rockstar in the final heat of the

competition.

She dominated the first two

days of the three-day series by

winning three of its first six

races.

The 20-year-old headed in to

Saturday night’s three deciding

heats at Albion Park with a

32-point lead.

Queensland’s Nathan Dawson

got within 14 points of her ahead

of the final heat after scoring a

SPORTS

win and a second placing in heats

seven and eight.

Tomlinson had little luck in

those races, finishing fourth and

eighth.

Dawson was the only driver

who could beat Tomlinson with a

strong result in the final heat.

He needed to win with

his drive, Ted West, and for

Tomlinson to run last or secondlast.

Tomlinson took control of her

championship destiny when leading

with Parisian Rockstar in the

final heat to finish on 97 points,

ahead of Dawson on 76.

Fellow New Zealand

representatives, Alicia

Harrison and Benjamin Butcher,

finished seventh and ninth,

respectively.

Tomlinson has finished third in

the New Zealand junior driver’s

premiership for the last two years

and this season she currently

second behind Ashburton’s John

Morrison.

On Saturday, Sheree’s younger

sister Kerryn had back to back

third place finishes at Geraldine

on Amaretto Sun – trained by

her grandfather Ken Ford – and

Tall Poppy.

$500 raised at Rolleston Toy Library fundraiser

ALMOST $500 was raised at a

toy drive and car boot sale for

the Rolleston Toy Library on

Saturday.

The event was both a fundraiser

and a community engagement

exercise for the newly-formed

library committee.

“We want the toy library to

be seen as a valuable resource

for our local families, so the

best way to achieve that is to get

out amongst the community

and spread the word,” library

communications co-ordinator

100%

CapItal GaIn

to the ResIDent

Michelle Sim said.

“Of course, nothing happens

without money, so this was our

first initiative to start raising the

funds we need to turn the vision

into reality.”

About 25 people booked spaces

for the car boot sale and others

donated toys.

Several community groups

also got involved by donating

time or resources, including

The Sling Lady with free babycarrying

advice, a team from

ANZ that ran a sausage sizzle

and Ray White Real Estate which

offered the use of a gazebo.

Rolleston College students

helped design promotional flyers

for the event which was held in

the school’s car park.

In spite of bad weather, Mrs

Sim said “so much effort had

gone in to planning the day,

nobody wanted to pull the pin

unless we absolutely had to.”

While some stall-holders had

to pull out, there were still about

a dozen selling everything from

homemade crafts, jams and

While the weather may have

prevented the event from being

as big as hoped, the library

committee is still claiming it as a

success.

“Not only did we raise nearly

$500, which is an excellent

start, but we were able to

begin connecting with the

community,” Mrs Sim said.

“We want to thank everyone

who pledged their support, we

really appreciate it.”

The group hopes to run

another similar event next

will pursue further fundraising

opportunities, as well as

continuing the search for

suitable premises.

Gillian Wilson

From back street football in Northern

Lincoln resident Gillian

Wilson recently returned

from the Pan Pacific

Masters Games on the

Gold Coast where her

Waikato Pioneers team

finished third. Age was no

barrier for the 56-yearold

who was the second

oldest player in the

women’s 40 and over

division. Gordon Findlater

spoke to the former

double international

about her early days

representing Northern

Ireland in football and

Ireland in equestrian.

Tell me about your footballing

days in Northern Ireland, how

were you introduced to the

sport?

I grew up playing football with

the boys in the back streets of

Belfast. I didn’t even know that

the women played to be honest.

I was in Young Farmers because

I’ve always enjoyed the country

and love animals, particularly

dogs. Anyway, they do a big gala

thing every year and I played

in the five-a-side ladies team. I

was playing five-a-side and at

the end of it this guy came up to

me, he had a clipboard, and he

said would you be interested in

playing 11-a-side football? He

said I’ll take your details and get

a manager to call you . . . I got

a phone call and turned up to

training and the next thing was

I was called up to the training

squad for Northern Ireland and

I’d never played an 11-a-side

game in my life. That was how

my career started and my first

11-a-side game was against

Scotland at Ibrox Stadium which

is the home ground for Glasgow

Rangers.

Did you get to play at any

other famous stadiums?

We played at Wembley against

England and we also played at

Elland Road which is the home

of Leeds United which is my

team. We got a tour of the place

and got to meet the team which

was amazing, especially for some

young girls from Belfast.

What was the stature of the

team like back then?

We had no money. If we had

to go somewhere you paid for it

yourself . . . we flew over to play

Scotland at Ibrox and the team

went across in four six-seater

planes over the Irish Sea. I won’t

be doing that ever again as long

as I live, it was a nightmare. We

arrived and had this shoddy little

bus while the Scottish girls had

this massive coach. They were

all sponsored and their gear was

immaculate. All these girls could

swap shirts after internationals

but we had one strip. If you lost

a sock you were in deep trouble.

We were as good as anything

around at the time though

because we had a lot of drive and

a lot of heart.

Are there any highlights

playing internationally that

stick out for you?

I guess the biggest highlight

was scoring a dead ball free kick

against England in Belfast from

22 yards. It was a big curler into

the top right-hand corner. The

English goal-keeper came up and

congratulated me after the game

. . . they were the top in the world

at that time. I think they beat us

4-1 but to get the one from there

against probably the best goalkeeper

on the planet at that time

was huge.

What position did you play?

I started out on the right

wing because I was very quick

in those days, but they decided

I was more of an architect of

the game and I read the game

very well so they moved me into

midfield which is where I still

play today.

Were there ever

opportunities to play

football for a living?

There weren’t quite the same

opportunities there are today,

but I was offered contracts in

Italy and I was also offered a

contract in America. There

were three of us from the Irish

team offered contracts and my

girlfriend Geraldine went . . .

the contract was to go and play,

you had accommodation and

they gave you about a thousand

dollars American a week which

was huge money and all you had

to do was coach twice a week at a

university.

Why didn’t you do that?

I’d started with the horses

at that stage as well so I had

other commitments. It was also

a very long contract so I had

to think, what if I don’t like it

and I was tied into a contract.

You had to really want to do it

and be prepared to spend five

years there . . . I think that was

the issue. If it had been for 12

months it would have been

something I’d have a go at.

Ireland to a life of horses and gardens

You’ve recently returned to

football for a couple of masters

tournaments. Tell me about the

third place finish in the Gold

Coast.

It was an amazing experience.

Our first game we played as a

team was our first game there

and we won 3-0 . . . the biggest

struggle was with the heat, it was

80 per cent humidity. I stuck my

shirt in a bucket of ice before

every game and it was dry within

minutes of chucking it on. They

had to take drink breaks every 15

minutes.

You also represented Ireland

in equestrian?

Dad bought me a little pony I

was just horse mad. I ended up

really just coming up through

the ranks and I represented

Ireland when I was 15. I started

when I was 11 and did it up until

I moved to New Zealand, so for

about 17 years.

Did you have much success?

Yes, I show-jumped all over

the place and represented Ireland

at Hickstead in England. I was

third overall in Europe which

was huge. There are 80 to 100

competitors over the space of a

week. I won Northern Ireland

championships in the late 1970s

and I was third in Ireland so that

put me in the top two or three in

the country.

Tell me about your move to

New Zealand.

They were starting an

equestrian centre up in Waikato

and I got the job. I started out

with four lame horses and no

clients. Now it’s one of the biggest

in New Zealand. I ran that for

five-and-a-half years, we were

one of the first places in the

North Island to start therapeutic

riding . . . then I got terribly ill,

moved to Christchurch and I’ve

been here ever since.

What happened with you

being terribly ill?

I’d been back to Ireland in

1992 and in 1993 I wasn’t feeling

very well. I’d had several pains

in my lower back and I just felt

really bad. Then I passed out one

day and woke up in intensive

NATIONAL HONOURS: Wilson played 26 games for Northern

Ireland.

care five weeks later in Waikato

hospital and they said I’d picked

up some sort of a bug which had

been dormant until my immune

system was low and then it

attacked the system . . . to this

day they don’t know what it was,

but at the time they said to my

parents that I had about three

hours to live.

So you didn’t remember a

thing for five weeks?

I don’t remember a thing.

I just remember being on the

phone to my mum. I know it was

around St Patrick’s Day because

her birthday is on the 18th of

March and I was about to head

FLYING: Wilson clears a barrier while competing in a show

jumping competition in Dublin in the late 1970s.

out to work because I lived on the

property at the equestrian centre

and then I just remember waking

up five weeks later . . . they said

to me if I wanted to play football

again it was going to take me a

couple of years to get my strength

and coordination back, but I

played half a game of premier

football that September.

So after that you moved to

Christchurch?

Mum and Dad were in

Christchurch and I needed

looking after so they said

look you’ve got to come to

Christchurch . . . when I got

here I ended up playing for

Canterbury and captained

the team at the South Island

championships which we won.

I played a couple of seasons

with the team but I’d gone into

my own business at that stage.

That basically when I stopped

playing.

What was the business you

had?

Initially when I came down

I ran the equestrian centre at

Wigram. I did that for a while

and then I had some land on

Old Tai Tapu Rd so I decided

to go into agistment which is

looking after race horses when

they’re not racing. I did it mainly

for a lot of the local trainers

like Colin De Filippi, Murray

Edmonds, Mike De Filippi and

Brent Weaver. I had all of their

horses when they were spelling

from racing and that’s a fulltime

job. I did that for 12 years

actually.

Now you’re doing gardening?

Yes, I decided I had enough of

the land and got back into my

gardening . . . so I bought a little

house in Lincoln and I’ve been

back at my gardening for seven

years. I was going to get enough

to keep me busy but it’s ended up

I have so much work I need an

extra day in the week.

I take it you celebrated

Ireland’s win over the All Blacks

last weekend?

Absolutely. I turned up work

last Monday in my Ireland scarf

and shirt. My first client on a

Monday is an avid All Blacks

fan and he said to me he knew I

would do that.

Last question, do you drink

Guinness?

Oh yes, I think we drank the

Landsdown Road dry – which

was the local Irish pub on the

Gold Coast – when we were over

there . . . we liked to have a drink

on our day off, it was the only

right thing to do really.

Diane Chesmar has a passion for dogs. Her

boutique dog accommodation based in Burnham,

Wagging Tails Country Retreat, is a testament to

her love and dedication to her four-legged guests.

Wagging Tails is a purpose-built facility, suitable

for both small and large dogs, where comfort is

essential with air conditioning for hot days and

self-heated bedding for chillier nights. Each guest

is welcomed and assessed individually based on

detailed information supplied by the owner.

Diane says she likes to think of Wagging Tails as a

home-away-from-home, where she can cater to the

individual dog’s needs and spend one-on-one time

with each guest.

Small or shy dogs have a separate play area and,

when the bigger dogs are having a rest, the little

dogs also get a run in the larger playground, which

comes complete with tunnels, mounds and a water

feature.

“Each dog gets plenty of play time. They are

handpicked to socialise in small compatible groups

and, being country-based with no neighbours, they

can make as much noise as they want.”

Diane’s background in nursing along with time

worked in a veterinary clinic, means she has a good

understanding of the needs, health, and welfare of

her four-legged guests.

Owners can rest assured that their beloved pet

will be well-loved and looked after while they are

away and can also see what their dog is up to on the

Wagging Tails’ facebook page.

Diane also offers doggy daycare for those who

need to work or don’t like to leave their dog home

alone while they are out and about.

to open in a month or so. Eight of the

businesses attracted are new to Lincoln.

vehicles are the talking point,

and while Tesla is seen as the

glamour brand and has stolen

the limelight in that part of the

market, it’s now time for the

mainstream manufacturers to

stand up and be counted.

Sure, there are a plethora of

petrol/electric hybrids available

in our market, and heaps

of pre-owned Nissan Leafs from

Japan, but there are just a few

electric-only models that can be

purchased new here.

One manufacturer which is

offering a good cross-section

of electric and hybrid models

is Hyundai. In recent times it

has launched a smallish liftback

model – the Ioniq – in electriconly

form (as well as hybrid), and

just lately the Kona has landed

with electric propulsion, bearing

in mind the small sport utility

vehicle is also here in normallyaspirated

and turbocharged petrol

variants.

When I look back in my diary

for this year, I see I’ve spent more

time in Kona than any other

model. It’s just as well then that

I like it, the Kona a neat mid-size

SUV which punches above its

weight in terms of driveability

and practicality. It lands here

HYUNDAI KONA: Plug it in and charge it up.

from $31,990, but it is a bit of a

step up to buy the electric Elite

64kWh at $79,990. Sure, there’s

a soon-to-be-launched lower

power version (39kWh), but

as with most new electric-only

models in the market there is a

price premium.

However, that’s no detraction,

the Kona EV is a fine piece of

work and it is a car which will go

a long way towards meeting the

sales target for EVs.

As mentioned, the Kona is

mid-size and there is little compromise

in the electric model.

Yes, the boot space is slightly

diminished but elsewhere you’ll

find little difference inside. That

is, unless you are the driver, the

controls and layout of the console

and dash area is quite different to

the standard car.

Notably, there are four push

buttons for the direct drive transmission,

all self-explanatory –

drive, reverse, park and neutral.

There are also paddle shifters;

well, they don’t really shift gears,

they simply add or reduce drag

on the electric motor to promote

the feeling of gearing. There

are also several drive modes to

increase or lower a sporty feel.

Ordinarily, the electric power

is ushered in with a solid surge

right from the point of first

movement. That’s because full

power is available instantly, and

if you take into account there

• Price – Hyundai Kona EV

Elite, $73,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4165mm; width,

1800mm; height,

1565mm

• Configuration – Electric

motor, front-wheeldrive,

150kW, 395Nm,

automatic transmission.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.6sec

is 395Nm of torque on tap, the

Kona EV feels feisty.

In technical terms, there’s also

150kW of power available which

if you stack up against a petrol

engine, then it is biased towards

sporty.

If you are thinking that there

must be some trade-off in terms

of range then think again, the

Kona EV has a claimed travelling

distance of up to 480km between

charges.

That’s simply due to the number

of batteries, as mentioned, there is

64kWh of storage, and that along

with the latest generation Lithiumion

Polymer technology makes

the Kona outstanding in terms of

capacity.

The only downside of having

such capacity is the charge time;

to fully charge from empty takes

around nine hours, or 43 hours

from a three-pin plug wall socket.

That aside, most drivers don’t let

the batteries go that low, and with

the number of charging stations

being installed nationwide, that

needn’t be an issue.

The Kona is also a blast to

drive, it is fast – a standstill to

100km/h time of 7.6sec is possible

and it will scorch through

a highway overtake in 4sec, the

time it takes to make 120km/h

from 80km/h is blisteringly fast,

and that’s attributable to that high

torque figure the electric motor

develops.

For an SUV, the Kona is

delightfully agile, and I’m talking

about a car which has a lot of

weight, the batteries add around

236kg to the standard car, yet it

still feels nimble and balanced.

Depending on your service

provider, the Kona will cost

around $8 to charge, and would be

more favourable on a night rate.

That being the case, it’s easy

to see why EVs are becoming so

popular in an age where fossil

fuel costs are spiralling. If I was

an EV buyer, the Kona would be

by far my pick, it is a genuinely

functional all-round vehicle,

and one which has quality

engineering aspects.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

Selwyn motor event

supports rescue helicopter

In 2017, the Westpac Rescue Helicopter undertook 693 rescue

missions across Canterbury, 76 of these in Selwyn. In 2016 the

numbers were a little lower at 639 and 74 respectively.

By the end of October this year, 72 rescue missions

had already been undertaken in the district, while 13

air rescues occurred across Canterbury and the West

Coast over Labour weekend.

Motor vehicle, mountain biking, hiking, workplace

and water related accidents all contribute to these

numbers as does medical emergencies.

Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust chief

executive, Christine Prince says the number of rescues

increases by approximately 10% each year, with over

12,000 successful missions having occurred since the

start of the rescue helicopter operation in 1989.

The New Zealand Flying Doctors service operates on

a national basis with planes based in Christchurch and

Nelson. The service is effectively a mobile Intensive

Care Unit, transferring patients between hospitals

such as to the Burwood Spinal Unit. This too is a busy

service with close to 1,500 missions completed in the

last 12 months.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter recently moved to a

new purpose-built emergency centre on Grays Road by

Christchurch Airport. A reserve rescue helicopter and

the New Zealand Flying Doctors are also based there.

GCH Aviation holds the contract for air rescue across

Canterbury, Nelson, Marlborough and the West Coast;

working in partnership with Heli Otago as HEMS, to

carry out all South Island rescues.

Currently, there is a pilot, crewman and an intensive

paramedic on the Westpac Rescue Helicopter. Staffing

numbers will increase now the latest contract for

the service is in place. Future plans include the

introduction of a new helicopter in Christchurch and

increased clinical support, leading to improved patient

care.

The Flying Doctors and Rescue Helicopters are only

partly government funded. The successful operation

of the rescue service across the Canterbury and West

Coast regions requires another $4million, and another

$2.5million to support the Flying Doctors. Christine

Prince says fundraising efforts like last weekend’s

Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motor Fest and Fun Day at

Rolleston go a long way to helping achieve this goal.

“It’s wonderful when people come to us and say they

have a community initiative to raise funds for the air

rescue service. It helps save lives,” says Christine.

Organising the Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motor Fest

took numerous hours from many volunteers who

deserve a special thank you for their considerable

effort in putting on another successful motor fest.

In turn, the organisers would like to thank the many

individuals and businesses who provided financial

assistance, time and goods, especially Lisa and Nigel

Fleck from Jones Road Auto and Selwyn Auto, John

Haggitt from Anything Hydraulic.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Ensure a reliable vehicle

these summer holidays

Well serviced vehicles help ensure safe and reliable

motoring so before Christmas book your car, van or

home-on-wheels in for a check-up. This is especially

important if heading away on holiday or planning day

trips.

Having your vehicle in tiptop shape may avoid

ending up stuck on the side of the road or having an

avoidable accident due to brake failure, tyres skidding

or something worse.

“Even newer vehicles need regular servicing,” advises

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols’ owner, Simon Wilson.

“With annual warrant of fitness checks, people can

think their vehicles need less maintenance yet a year

is a long time and regular motoring takes its toll on a

vehicle,” advises Simon.

Simon says even late model vehicles break down.

Regular servicing helps spot potential problems before

they become an issue while keeping a vehicle more

reliable.

The team at Rolleston Diesel & Petrols have noted

more vehicles are breaking down through lack of

regular maintenance. A WOF inspection looks for

structural problems, covering brakes, suspension and

steering, a must for Selwyn motorists who generally

travel further. Even short distance travelling can take its

toll on a vehicle that does not warm up, putting strain

on the motor, leading to increased fuel consumption

and less economic motoring.

Some people also overlook tell-tale signs like the

smell of oil, suggesting an oil leak. If not repaired this

could lead to engine damage while low tread or uneven

tyre wear can be a safety hazard.

Simon, Hayden and Allen at Rolleston Diesel &

Petrols can check your vehicle and look after its regular

servicing, even reminding you when WOF checks are

due.

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols is a multi-skilled, wellequipped

repair and service centre with the latest

diagnostic equipment including fuel injector cleaning

gear, Egr and Dps, providing the capacity to maintain

and repair personal through to business vehicles.

Whether a car, ute, 4WD, van, light commercial

(up to 12 tons), motorhome, bus, motorcycle, jet

ski, boat, ride-on lawnmower, or horse float, good

quality components, oils and original specifically

manufactured equipment parts will be used on your

vehicle. They are also members of the Motor Trade

Association giving you assurance your vehicle will

receive quality workmanship.

“We don’t use cheap parts that won’t last,” emphasises

Simon who has a strong belief that every individual

vehicle should be maintained and fixed properly.

Diesel & Petrols is located at 839 Jones Road

on the Izone side of Rolleston. Why not give

them a call on 03 347 7110 or email: simon@

rollestondieselandpetrols.co.nz, and check their

website: www.rollestondieselandpetrols.nz.

Simon, Hayden and Allen would like to wish all their

loyal customers a great Christmas and New Year along

with a well-deserved break.

Over the holiday period, Rolleston Diesel & Petrols

will only be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day,

New Year’s Day and the following day.

Editorial supplied by

Gardening

• By Rachel Vogan

ROAMING around garden

centres at this time of year is one

of my favourite things to do.

The only downside is that even

if I don’t need anything at all, I

generally leave with a boot-load

of goodies.

ASTERS ‘KING SIZE BLUE’

AND ‘KING SIZE WHITE’

These asters are just the business

for anyone wanting to grow

flowers to pick. They’re quick

to germinate and the flowers will

be ready to pick and enjoy in

about 12 weeks. The blooms on

these annuals are much larger

than others in its category, with

rows and rows of petals on each

bloom, which is what makes them

so appealing for bouquets and

posies. Cut blooms last for well

over a week, even longer if the

water is changed frequently. ‘King

Size Blue’ has rich kingfisher blue

blooms on stems that reach up to

1m in height. ‘King Size White’

has pure snow-white blooms

that I can see being a favourite

for bridal bouquets or those

who have a desire to paint their

garden white. Plant in garden

beds or flower borders, and, if

wind could be an issue, pop some

stakes in to support the stems.

Regular cutting of the flowers

will encourage a longer flowering

period.

DIDISCUS ‘LACE MIX’

These vintage summer flowers

add a graceful, ethereal element

to the cottage garden. The plants

are quick and easy to grow. Each

plant produces a flurry of sweetly

scented umbels in blue, pink,

white and shades in-between. If

your garden is on the large size,

I suggest investing in a couple

of packets. When picked, these

lace flowers with last in a vase for

up to 10 days. Best grown in the

garden.

LAVENDER JAVELIN FORTE

‘DEEP PURPLE’

Our sporting friends from

Zealandia have released this

super-looking new lavender.

Being a Lavandula stoechas

variety, it will bloom throughout

summer and autumn, and bees

will just flock to it. It’s part of the

Javelin Forte series, bred to form

a very uniform compact plant

and with an unusually vigorous

growth habit – it will quickly

form a neat mound on the

garden and then cover itself

with a cloak of deep purple

flowers. What is unique is that

this one produces more flags or

ears per flower, which adds to

the plant’s overall appeal. Javelin

‘Deep Purple’ is suitable to plant

out in a sunny spot in the garden

or to create a statement in patio

pots.

BACOPA ‘MEGACOPA

WHITE’

Anyone who has grown these

ground-covering plants will

know they are a favourite for

hanging baskets and patio tubs.

‘MegaCopa White’ has the same

low-growing habit as other

varieties, but its huge pure white

flowers stay on the plant for a lot

longer. It doesn’t stop growing

when the temperatures rise either.

It is a wonderful plant in the

garden too, especially if you wish

to create a carpet of flowers under

the canopy of something else. You

will be able to get them through

the winter if you plant them in a

sheltered spot. Ask for this one

by name.

NEMESIA PENHOW AROMA

YELLOWS ‘PLUMS AND

CUSTARD’

How wonderful does this

new nemesia look. With its

contrasting yellow and purple

blooms, this sun-loving perennial

from the Penhow Aroma Yellows

series is more than likely to

hit the top-selling list on looks

alone. However, this plant has

a hidden gift – the flowers are

fragrant, with an aroma said to

be sweet and slightly spicy. Bred

in Wales at Penhow Nursery, it’s

an absolute showstopper and a

marvel of modern breeding. The

plants themselves grow nice and

compact, and look good en masse

or as extra colour to punctuate

your patio plantings. Get in quick

on this one, I have

a feeling it’s going to be popular!

STRAWFLOWERS

– COLOURWAVE

BRACTEANTHA DREAMTIME

SERIES

Holy moly, these bright

everlasting strawflowers look

impressive. If you are after bold

long-lasting summer and autumn

colour these Xerochrysum

bracteata are worth a look.

This new series features four

fantastic colours: ‘Jumbo Red’,

‘Jumbo Yellow’, ‘Jumbo White’

and ‘Jumbo Rose’ and forms nice

compact plants with a uniform

mounding habit. The hardy

annuals have been bred to flower

for months

on end and to endure life in

containers and tubs. They need at

least six hours of direct sunlight

a day and a fertile soil will ensure

they produce the most blooms.

Once established, they require

very little water

and are very heat tolerant.

neat and tidy growth habit, while

producing masses of stunning

double blooms reminiscent of

a tiny petunia. So, if you are a

fan of the colour purple, this

calibrachoa could well makes

its way into your garden this

summer.

PATIO GERBERA ‘KAROO’

Flower lovers will gravitate to

this new patio gerbera. ‘Karoo’

boasts super large, two-toned

pink and white flowers, which

keep appearing throughout

summer and autumn. A trick

to keeping Gerbera jamesonii

looking the part over summer is

to plant them in a large tub and

use good quality potting mix, one

that holds onto water well. Full

sun is ideal; however, they will

cope with a few hours a day in

partial shade. They are also happy

indoors too, so why not dress up

the dinner table or windowsill

with these festive-looking

blooms?

[Edition datE]

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

A bedroom offers

place of refuge

For many people their bedroom is more

than a place to sleep, providing somewhere

to escape to relax with a book or watch the

box. Children often play in their bedrooms.

They may also be a study den away from

distractions for students.

Calculating the ideal size for each

bedroom in your new home depends upon

whether it will simply be a place to hang

one’s clothes and sleep or have other uses

as well.

Visualising the size of each bedroom

can be hard when viewing house plans.

Visiting show homes can help though, be

mindful of the size of furniture and beds

on display. Compare each setting to what

will go into your bedrooms. Determine

the size of each room and measure your

existing bedrooms, or pace out what you

will require. You might even pop a tape

measure into your pocket when doing

the show home rounds, to help with this

exercise.

Budget will influence the number of

bedrooms and size of each. If wanting

a guest bedroom for the occasional

visitor, consider a more compact space or

incorporating this with an office space to

avoid having an under-utilised room.

Resale may be a consideration with three

bedrooms now popular where once only

four bedroom homes were sought after.

However, the number of bedrooms should

equate to your own family needs and

lifestyle.

Positioning of bedrooms in relation to

other parts of a home and sun are also

factors to consider. If you have a baby or

young children it may be favourable to

have the bedrooms close together. For

teenagers, a degree of separation from the

master bedroom might be desirable. Larger

families may also need more bathroom

facilities and if an elderly person or nonfamily

member will also be living in the

home, a separate ensuite just for them may

be advantageous.

Another consideration is bedroom

storage for clothing, toys, books and

items such as bedding. Walk-in robes

offer generous storage but consume more

space with more walls adding to the build

price. Taking wardrobe doors closer to

ceiling height will make top shelves more

accessible for storing large bags, suitcases

and less used possessions. Adding a row of

shelving on one side provides a great place

for jumpers, toys and the like and may take

away the need for a set of drawers in the

room.

Choosing a larger window or sliding

door where the room looks out to the

garden or a sunny area can

also make a bedroom more

attractive.

Incorporating a good

supply of power points and

electronic connections is more

affordable when a home is

built. Address how WiFi will

be accessed along with sockets

for telephone and television

reception.

Bedrooms need not be an

afterthought. Taking time to

reflect on your needs for this

area of the home helps ensure

a liveable and workable house

design.
