Ram-raiders

smash into shop

Cigarettes, cash taken

• By Emily O’Connell

EARLY MORNING ramraiders

spent 3min in a dairy

and fled with thousands of

dollars in cigarettes and cash.

Two heavily disguised

offenders broke into the locked

cigarette cabinet at Lincoln’s

Robert Street Convenience

Store after smashing their way

through the front door in a

stolen Subaru.

31 was caught on the store’s

CCTV camera.

The store manager, who did

not want to be identified, said

$1500 to $2000 in cash was

stolen, along with “roughly”

$6000 in cigarettes. She said the

offenders must have planned the

burglary as they knew which

cabinet the cigarettes were in.

She said the store had to be

closed on New Year’s Eve but

was reopened the next day.

Teen

caught

after

netball

centre

break-in

• By Anan Zaki

A TEENAGER believed to have

been living rough in Lincoln has

been caught after a break-in at

the Selwyn Netball Centre.

The 16-yearold

was chased

from the

netball centre

by a man who

was at Lincoln

Domain.

The teenager,

believed to be

from Rolleston, Pete Stills

allegedly broke

into the centre on December

30 about 8.30pm. He did not

manage to steal anything except

the keys for the centre.

“The witness was in the

playground with his girlfriend,

heard a window break, ran to

the club house and saw a male

[teenager] coming out of the

front door,” Senior Sergeant Pete

Stills said.

TOP WORK by whoever chased the young

fellow who broke into the Selwyn Netball

Centre (see page 1).

The burglar was fairly quick but not quick

enough to avoid the eyes of his pursuer who

was able to give police a good description of

him. The boys and girls in blue did the rest.

The catch, and the break-in itself, won’t go down as one of

the majors in the annals of crime in the district – but catching

the young fellow probably nipped more nuisance offending and

petty crime in the bud. And that causes most people hit by that

sort of offending grief.

But lots of inconvenience for the convenience store in Lincoln

(see page 1).

The manager said the store was

However, she said there was

more damage this time because the

offenders had to get through the

safety bars. She said it will take one

Lorena and three of her children were diagnosed with leprosy.

Lorena says “Although our leprosy could be cured, we knew that

sometimes there can be serious effects from the disease, like

disabilities. I was terrified that more of my children would get sick.

But then the Pacific Leprosy Foundation started its new programme

which gives medicine to the rest of the family so that they are

much less likely to get leprosy. It was wonderful to have that

reassurance! Now I want the rest of the countries in the Pacific

to be able to take part in this programme, but I know that costs a lot

of money.”

Defence Force support hub in Rolleston

• By Emily O’Connell

A HUB established in Rolleston

to assist service personnel and

their families is struggling to get

people through the door.

The Templeton RSA set-up

the hub, at 95 Rolleston Drive,

after discussions with the New

Zealand Defence Force and

with assistance from the district

council.

It follows the success of the

Burnham hub, which was

launched two years ago, just

outside the Burnham Military

Camp.

Templeton RSA support

services welfare officer and

poppy sales co-ordinator David

Sands said the Rolleston hub

“didn’t get off the ground well”

and has had “virtually no

visitors” since it opened.

Mr Sands is encouraging

people who have served, past

or present, to visit the hub for

any welfare-related problems,

mentoring or for help with

applications.

“I personally am concerned

about post-traumatic stress

injury, that is and has been

experienced by some of our

younger service men and

women. We are able to mentor

families into the various

Government agencies for

assistance,” he said.

Mr Sands said the hub is open

on Wednesdays from 4-7pm

but it can open at other times if

needed.

He said its services are free

and are always “treated in

confidence.”

The Templeton RSA has

a long history in the area,

initially starting in 1938 as the

Prebbleton RSA.

A change in population, meant

the RSA shifted to its current

location on the corner of Kirk Rd

and Banks St in Templeton in the

early 1960s.

Mr Sands said before building

commenced, Templeton

residents grew potatoes on the

land and sold them to raise

funds for building materials.

“They got a good deal

from local merchants and in

the 1960s they built the existing

building in Templeton. So

they shifted everything from

Prebbleton to Templeton,” he

said.

The Templeton RSA currently

has just under 700 members,

with about 150 of them “active”

in the club.

Over the past couple of years

there have been discussions

about opening a new RSA in

Rolleston.

HISTORY: Templeton RSA patron Colleen Gregg and president

Stan Hansen burying the time capsule at its 80th anniversary

celebration in November.

However, Mr Sands said it was

decided about six months ago the

new club would not go ahead.

He said this was because a

“common agreement” was not

reached between its executive

committee, the district

council and other interested

parties.

In November, the club

celebrated its 80th anniversary.

Part of the celebration included

putting together a time capsule,

which contained a recipe

book created by a member,

information on the Templeton

RSA’s history and a list of

significant events that

have occurred over the past 80

years.

Maddie recovering at

home after kidney scare

• By Emily O’Connell

WEST MELTON teenager

Maddie Collins has been doing

“really well” since returning

home from Starship Children’s

Health in Auckland.

The 15-year-old was in

Starship for more than three

weeks leading up to Christmas

to try and determine what has

been causing a decline in her

kidney function.

Maddie, who suffers from

the kidney disease nephrotic

syndrome, underwent a

successful kidney transplant last

January.

Her mother, Sarah Manson-

Collins, said they flew back

home from Starship on

December 23, just in time for

Christmas. She said Maddie

is doing well and is enjoying

hanging out with friends, jetskiing

and horse riding.

Recent results from a kidney

biopsy showed Maddie is

dealing with kidney rejection.

Mrs Manson-Collins said

Maddie has been taking

steroids, along with other

medication, in a bid to reverse

the rejection.

She said Maddie is having

regular blood tests and her

health will continue to be

monitored.

Maddie will undergo further

tests later this month, and the

HOME: Maddie

Collins is enjoying

Health in Auckland.

results will determine whether

she will have to go back to

Starship.

Maddie and her family were

told on January 16 last year that

their five-year wait for a kidney

match had been found. They

flew to Auckland the following

day and Maddie underwent

an initial operation and then a

second operation to reposition

the kidney.

Maddie received a kidney

from her father Adam Collins

about six years ago but her body

rejected it. With only a two per

cent chance of finding a donor

match in New Zealand, the

family had not expected to find

another kidney in the country.

FAMILY: Stay-at-home dad Matt Salmons and his wife Laura enjoy Christmas

with their daughter.

Vittoria celebrates her

first festive season

HAPPY NEW Year! I hope

everyone has enjoyed the

festive season as much as

Vittoria and I have.

Honestly, I didn’t know

she could eat as much in

one day as she did and

since she’s all good to eat

pretty much anything, our

plates will never be sacred

again.

Wee Vittoria’s first

Christmas was much more

exciting for us parents

than her initially, but we

think it left her with a great

impression.

We spent it in Waikuku

with my mum, nan,

dad and step-dad and

then headed down to

Ashburton on Boxing Day

to see my pop and aunty.

Vittoria was very spoilt

in the gifts department: A

term of swimming lessons;

a monkey toy that reads

to her; her own set of keys

(so she doesn’t steal mine

so much); and new clothes

and books.

There were so many

wrapped gifts she got sick

of tearing paper. I think I’ll

only ever say that once.

However, judging by

how difficult it was to get

her down for her naps, it

was spending time with

her family with lots of

colour and music which

she enjoyed most.

And all the food. I

actually lost count of how

many things she tried

for the first time. Pretty

much everything, save the

brandy, beer and bubbly.

The festivities have got

me and my wife Laura

talking about what sort

of traditions we’d like to

develop for our young

family.

Laura’s from north-east

Italy, a region near Venice

called Friuli-Venezia

Giulia.

Christmas Eve is the big

deal there, with big family

meals, mass at church and

then presents at midnight.

Whereas for my family,

Christmas Day is king,

with croissants at breakfast

VITTORIA

& Matt

and too much lunch before

presents. We’d like to

blend the two together as

well as start celebrating the

Feast of the Epiphany on

January 6. Why? Because

in Italy it signals a send-off

for the Christmas season

and the Christmas Witch

(La Befana) visits the

children with gifts and

sweeps the floor for some

reason.

Then, at least in Laura’s

village, the townsfolk burn

an effigy of her. I guess

because she’s technically a

witch. While I don’t think

we’ll be burning effigies

any time soon (so if you’re

a firefighter reading this,

rest easy), I’m looking

forward to seeing how our

family traditions grow.

SELWYN TIMES

Deborah Bratton responds to a Selwyn Times article about the removal of two parking

spaces outside The Famous Grouse Hotel in Lincoln

A COUPLE of months ago,

there were comments made

on social media regarding the

pedestrian crossings in Lincoln.

My young family has

problems using the three

crossings in Lincoln as drivers

on a majority of times do not

stop to let my children cross.

Also, visibility is poor,

especially on the Edward St

crossing as there is a power pole

obstructing view, and there are

so many driver distractions

between the library and the

Liffey, with junctions and people

pulling out of parking. This is a

huge hazard for pedestrians on

the crossings.

I took it upon myself to

contact the district council,

which very promptly directed

MP Amy Adams.

my issues to Peter Daly, the

safety representative, and who

very quickly called me and met

me and some locals in the town

to hear our thoughts.

I highlighted on social media

the need for a group discussion,

which Mr Daly became

involved in, and many opinions/

experiences and views were

raised.

He could see one of the

problems with the crossings is

visibility. When larger cars or

utes are parked, you cannot see

a pedestrian waiting to cross.

For immediate safety, he was

able to put the dotted yellow

lines outside The Famous

Grouse. There are still many

things to be done. But I would

like to praise the district council

in sending Peter Daly, who has

listened and actioned safety

measures.

I understand the district

council is doing a lot of

background work in reshaping

the Lincoln community and

I look forward to seeing it.

Call to eradicate feral cats

• By Emily O’Connell

AN OPEN season on feral cats

is being called for in a bid to

protect wildlife in Selwyn.

A report on how to deal with

feral cats will be presented to the

district council in

March.

It follows on

from Springfield

Township Committee

secretary

Sean Ellis’s

deputation to the

Sean Ellis

district council

meeting last

month. Mr Ellis told the meeting

he wanted the district council to

be a “leader” in the predator-free

movement.

He said it’s important to distinguish

the difference between

domestic and feral cats and

micro-chipping is a “massive

tool” which can help with this.

Mr Ellis said over the last 10

years, he has noticed a decline in

the wildlife in forest areas.

Pests, such as ferrets, stoats,

weasels, rats, hedgehogs, wasps

and possums, can be controlled,

he said.

“The problem is I can knockoff

all the predators out there

except one and that one predator

[feral cats] is the main problem

in small townships,” Mr Ellis

said.

He said a small trapping

programme in the Tasman Basin

“took out” 6000 feral cats in two

years. “So I’d hate to think how

many cats are from here to the

Arthur’s Pass.”

District council chief executive

David Ward said staff will put

together a report on the issue

which will come back to council

in March.

At the council meeting, Mayor

Sam Broughton asked Mr Ellis

what the main method was for

catching cats.

“Out in the bush we shoot

them or catch them in kill traps.

In a township environment

we want to catch them in cage

traps,” Mr Ellis said.

Backyard Critters

SCHOOLS

Silverfish: One of the

oldest insects around

Mike Bowie is

an ecologist

who specialises

in entomology

(insects

and other

invertebrates). Each

week he introduces a

new species found in

his backyard at Lincoln.

His column aims to raise

public awareness of

biodiversity, the variety

of living things around

us. Check out the full list

of invertebrates found at

http://naturewatch.org.

nz/projects/backyardbiodiversity-bugs-in-lincoln

RECENTLY WHILE moving

a stack of wood in the garage, I

disturbed some grey silverfish –

ctenolepisma longicaudata.

Silverfish belong to a very

primitive group of insects that

date back 350 million years, before

insects developed wings.

The 20mm long, grey silverfish

is easily identified by its silvery

appearance, three tail filaments,

lack of wings and quick retreat

when disturbed.

SURVIVOR: The grey silverfish, ctenolepisma longicaudata, is

easily identified by its silvery appearance, three tail filaments,

lack of wings and quick retreat when disturbed.

Found almost worldwide, they

are commonly seen in old books

or empty baths. They feed on

starchy food, such as paper and

cardboard, so a common place to

find them is in old books. They

also feed on protein from dead

insects, plus pollen and fungal

spores.

They are sometimes found

in bathrooms due to the high

humidity and can get stuck in

the bath as, unlike other insects,

they lack the pads under their

feet that allow them to climb on

slippery surfaces.

Rather than drinking through

their mouth, these primitive

insects absorb moisture though

their rectum. Silverfish moult

every one to three months,

allowing them to replace any

broken appendages, and can live

several years.

Given these prehistoric

insects date back to well before

the dinosaurs, they are a true

survivor.

End of an era at Lincoln Primary

Lincoln Primary School year 1 pupils at the junior campus

which was closed last month. The school has been operating

across two sites for more than two years. The junior

campus was established on Edward St in 2016 due to the

rapid roll growth and lack of capacity at the main site on

North Belt. School principal Viv Butcher and the board of

trustees negotiated with the Ministry of Education to ensure

appropriate provision was made for pupils. The school is due

to move into its new learning space (below) in March.

Synchronised swimmers

bring home gold medals

SELWYN synchronised

swimmers Alessandra Ward and

Tia Betteridge came home with

some extra luggage in the form

of a gold medal each.

The pair returned home

after spending two weeks in

Singapore and Malaysia.

They were part of the New

Zealand development team,

which was made up of 13

synchronised swimmers aged

between 12 and 15. They were

competing at the Asia Pacific

Open in Malaysia, where they

achieved outstanding success,

winning the free combination

team event.

“This year we travelled with

13 athletes. All of them grew

significantly over the year

of training, and particularly

over the two weeks we have

been away. Singapore and

Malaysia were quite different

competitions, giving them

different experiences to draw

from. To come home with a gold

medal is always a real highlight

for everyone,” said head coach

Kirstin Anderson.

Alessandra and Tia’s club

coach, Chantelle Symons,

played an important part in the

campaign, working with the

coaching team to prepare the

girls with centralised training

every school holidays.

“I am hugely proud of Tia and

Alessandra, they have worked

really hard for this, and to bring

home a gold medal is fantastic.

Alessandra was selected as team

captain – a real honour for her,

and our club in Christchurch,”

said Symons.

The campaign was part of

McKenzie appointed to

Lincoln University

Lincoln University has announced the

appointment of Professor Bruce McKenzie

as Acting Vice-Chancellor, a position he

will take over from Professor James McWha

this year.

Professor McKenzie, currently Lincoln’s

Deputy Vice-Chancellor, is a wellrespected,

long-time member of the

university community.

His Lincoln Council appointment follows

the Government’s initiative to investigate

an alternative structural arrangement

for the university, which has resulted in

partnership discussions with the University

of Canterbury.

Negotiations continue and both parties

will provide a proposal to Education

Minister Chris Hipkins in December.

Chancellor Steve Smith says Professor

McKenzie will provide solid, stable

leadership to Lincoln as it continues to

deliberate on its future structure.

“Bruce is well known to Lincoln and

has a proven track record of impeccable

leadership after working at the university

for more than 30 years. Staff have shown

overwhelming support for his appointment,

and we are thrilled that Bruce has agreed to

take on the role.”

Professor McKenzie’s association with the

Professor Bruce McKenzie, newly

appointed Acting Vice-Chancellor

university began in the early 1980s, when he

attended Lincoln as a postgraduate student,

completing a postgraduate diploma in

agricultural science and then a PhD in

agronomy and crop science.

From there, he took up a 22-year post at

the university as an Associate Professor of

Agronomy, responsible for teaching

a range of classes in plant science,

statistics and annual crop production.

In 2008, he became Dean of the

Faculty of Agriculture and Life

Sciences, which involved managing

150 staff members in four departments.

He worked in this role for more

than seven years before becoming the

university’s Chief Academic Officer,

overseeing Lincoln’s academic faculties, as

well as the Library, Teaching and Learning

department, University Studies and English

Language, and the Research Management

Office.

He was appointed to the position of

Deputy Vice-Chancellor earlier this year.

Outgoing Vice-Chancellor Professor

McWha is expected to take on the role of

Provost, which will involve offering advice,

guidance and support to the university.

Professor McKenzie will take over as

Acting Vice-Chancellor from 1 January

2019 and remain in the position until 30

June 2020.

Water storage essential

for future resilience

IrrigationNZ says a recent expert

discussion document on drought and

climate change highlights that future

national planning to improve water storage

and look at a range of options to mitigate

the effects of the more severe droughts

forecast is urgently needed.

“More frequent droughts and more

variable rainfall will affect both urban and

rural communities and will mean that

we will need to rethink how we manage

water in the future. For example with less

rainfall forecast over summer in western

areas of New Zealand, there will be more

demand for water storage from both

councils and farmers to provide a reliable

water supply,” says IrrigationNZ Chief

Executive Andrew Curtis.

“To adequately prepare for the future

New Zealand needs to capture more

of its plentiful water from rain and ice

melt. Hopefully the issues highlighted

in this document will lead to action to

avoid our regions being crippled from

future droughts,” Mr Curtis adds.The

document highlights that having been

historically ‘water-rich’, New Zealand is

not well-prepared to cope with a future

that will involve more droughts in

many areas. The report points out that:

“much of our irrigation in drier areas is

on a run-of-river basis, a model extremely

vulnerable to drought given environmental

obligations. New Zealand’s dependence on

agricultural exports and urban reservoirs

may yet be a recipe for drought vulnerability.

Changing drought risk will have an impact

on our society in many ways including on

water supply, wastewater, stormwater and

primary production among others.”

“It’s positive that the government is

looking at how water services will be

delivered in the future,” says Mr Curtis. “The

next step is to develop a national approach

to plan for improved water storage for both

urban and rural communities.”

“Local and regional water storage

infrastructure can be expensive to design

and construct but the need for this

investment will become more critical in the

future. We will also need new infrastructure

in regions where this hasn’t previously been

required as rainfall and river flows change,”

he says.

Gardening

Editorial supplied by

www.gardener.kiwi

Time to plant summer herbs and flowers

Some of the easiest plants to

grow are herbs and flowers.

Getting to know these

garden staples is also a great

way to learn about the basics

of gardening. Shannon Hunt

provides instructions for

beginner gardeners

•Step one: What mint likes

Mint (common, chocolate,

ginger, spearmint) makes a fresh

and tasty addition to a green salad

and a refreshingly healthy drink

when bruised into a jug of iced

water with lemon.

Always plant mint in a big

pot in quality media (potting

mix) with a few water crystals to

help keep the plant moist (not

waterlogged) and make sure

it gets a little shade during the

hottest part of the day. Mint does

not do well if it dries out for too

long.

•Step two: Which herbs like

living with mint?

You can plant parsley and

coriander in the same pot as

mint, because these herbs love

moist soil too. Make sure you

give each plant plenty of room

to expand as they grow.

•Step three: Which herbs

like drier soil?

Thyme (common, pizza,

lemon), rosemary and fragrant

oregano, prefer being more dry

than moist and love soaking in

all-day sun.

These herbs won’t spread

rampantly over your whole

garden like mint, so plant them

in your raised or open garden.

•Step four: Basil is a loner

Basil (common, purple, Thai,

giant, tiny leafed) needs a little

more care to produce a good

harvest. It loves growing alone

and thrives in sun, but also likes

a little shade. I suggest you grow

it in a big pot that can be moved

around to catch the sunshine and

removed from windy conditions.

•Step five: Coriander

stresses

A lot of experienced gardeners

suggest you get a better product

when you grow your coriander

from seed.

It’s easy as long as you plant

the seeds just below the surface

and right where you want them

to grow in your garden. Feed

well and keep it watered. To slow

down the ‘bolting’ of coriander

(it stresses when the weather gets

really hot and will go to seed)

harvest it often.

•Step six: Clip your herbs

Always cut your herbs back

because that’s how they bulk up.

Removing the tips of basil will

create new growth.

Removing flowers from thyme,

cutting back chives, oregano and

parsley will redirect the nutrients

into the new growth.

Whether you can use the

cuttings or not, always clip your

herbs.

•Step seven: Easy flower

growing

To start an easy flower

garden, cultivate a small space

or garden edge and turn some

heat-treated sheep pellets into

the soil.

Then grab a mix of marigold

and cornflower seeds and throw

them across the garden.

Place a thin layer of soil on

top and water them. Now buy

some flower seedlings

of your choice and place

them at regular (or irregular)

spaces throughout the growing

space.

Make sure you water the

garden daily and before too long

little leaves will pop up through

the soil and the seedlings you

planted will grow bushier and

begin to flower.

You can add to the look by

popping taller-growing flower

plants along the back.

HAPPY

NEW

YEAR!

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

It was the firs time Mr Garth

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

The preparation for this year’s

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes t own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking t operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about setting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

above his Au sie rivals at an

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

“You can just about guarant e

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if
