Planned

skate park

prompts

‘Rollenui’

social

media

response

• By Anan Zaki

THE DEBATE over the location

of a new skate park in West

Melton has led to “unfair” labels

being put on Rolleston.

Selwyn Central district

councillor Craig Watson says

online discussion about the

location has led to Facebook users

saying people from “Rollenui”

would cause trouble in West

Melton.

“Rollenui” is a term for people

from Aranui and other parts

of the city’s east who moved to

Rolleston after the earthquakes.

The “disappointing” comments

appeared last week on the West

Melton Community Page, but had

since been deleted, Cr Watson

said.

“A lot of the stuff I’ve seen on

social media are a lot of unhelpful

comments about people’s social

statuses, monetary issues and

people moving from Rolleston

causing issues,” Cr Watson said.

Fulton Hogan asked

• By Anan Zaki

ENVIRONMENT Canterbury

and the district council are

seeking more information from

Fulton Hogan over its planned

controversial quarry near

Weedons.

ECan requested more information

about the scope of the

application, Canterbury air

regional plan

assessments,

effects on air

quality, dust

management,

groundwater

effects, well

use, effects on

Simon Moore

water races,

aggregate

The district council requested

more information on transportation

matters, noise, landscape,

assessment of effects, mitigation

measures and planning and

other general information.

Fulton Hogan said it will

respond to the requests for more

information by February 28.

Fulton Hogan applied to

quarry on the site bordered by

Curraghs, Dawsons, Jones and

Maddisons Rds in November.

“Once the information is

deemed to be complete, the

applications will be publicly

notified, providing the opportunity

for submissions to be made,”

ECan said.

ECan says once the information

is received both councils

will review and assess the information

to determine whether it

is complete, or whether additional

clarification from Fulton

Hogan.

Weedons Residents’

Association member Simon

Moore believed the requests for

extra information by ECan and

the district council was “well

written.”

“I was quite pleased, it was

obviously quite thorough and

it would be very interesting to

see what their [Fulton Hogan’s]

response to a lot of the questions

would be, particularly the issues

around water and traffic,” Mr

Moore said.

Mr Moore believes that if

ECan said that once the information

“In reality, when I was doorknocking

for the election three

years ago, a lot of the families I

met . . . were all selling because

their teenage children were so

bored and their parents were

spending their entire weekend

driving in and out of

town,” Cr Watson said.

He said there is some

concern about the skate

park being located near

houses.

“The community can

decide where they want

to put it . . . but we need

to make sure we cater for

all the community, not

just those that don’t want

Cr Watson said

he doesn’t have a

preferred location but

he understood people’s

concerns about a skate

park creating noise

issues.

The district council

is currently consulting on the

design and location of the skate

park. It has given four options

for residents to choose from. The

consultation closes on February

13. The proposed options are

the reserve on West View Cres

joining West Melton Primary

School; Brinsworth Reserve

on Brinsworth Ave; Retford

Common Reserve on Rotherham

Drive; and the West Melton

Domain next to the community

and recreation centre.

West Melton Residents’

Association member Bruce

Russell said the site next to the

community and recreation centre

was the only “logical”

option. Mr Russell did

not agree with the online

comments about people

from Rolleston causing

trouble at the proposed

skate park. “If we can keep

the youth occupied they will

stay out of trouble,” he said.

Craig Watson “[Prior to] consultation,

who represented clubs and

organisations had taken it

back to their own people

with the suggestion where

we felt it should go,” Mr

Russell said.

Cop gives kids helping hand

WHEN MOTHER Gretchen

He quickly returned to the

Croucher returned, reinforced

Mrs Pirika said the children

had a day they will never

“He had the kids sitting in

said.

“He was so lovely and it just

Extended hours for libraries

SELWYN LIBRARIES will

introduce extended opening

hours from Friday.

The new hours, which were announced

last August on trial basis,

have come about in response

to customer feedback and a

recent trial of extended Saturday

opening hours.

Community relations manager

Denise Kidd says the trial proved

very popular with library users

and will now be continued at

all library locations. Across the

district’s network of libraries, in

Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and

Rolleston, the hours will also be

more consistent.

Weekday hours at all four

libraries will be from 9am to

6pm, with Lincoln and Rolleston

libraries also remaining open

until 8pm on Thursday evenings.

Saturday opening will continue

at all four libraries, from 10am

to 4pm. Lincoln and Rolleston

libraries will also be open on

Sundays from 10am to 4pm.

The review of library services

also included changes to outreach

services, including the mobile

library. Data showed that usage

of the mobile library by children

at schools and pre-schools was

inconsistent, and general public

use of the service was also limited.

CHANGES: Libraries across the district will be open for longer

in the changes announced by the district council.

The council is actively exploring

different options to improve

the delivery of outreach services

and will be progressively implementing

changes over the coming

months. The aging mobile

library will eventually be decommissioned

and replaced with a

smaller vehicle that provides for a

broader range of uses associated

with outreach.

Ms Kidd says the council is in

communication with a number

of user groups, schools and preschools

about how it can offer

a more effective and efficient

service in the future.

“The new outreach service is

expected to provide a more flexible

and responsive service for

users,” she said.

“This will include programmes

delivered directly to more

remote schools and pre-schools,

increased availability of digital

resources and enhanced 24/7 digital

library, along with expanded

lifelong learning programmes

delivered at locations outside

libraries.”

The council has also confirmed

an increase in libraries staffing

numbers to support the longer

opening hours. Overall staffing

numbers at libraries will increase

from approximately 21 to 26 fulltime

equivalent positions.

Following a process of consultation

with staff, a total of 12

new roles have been established.

Seven positions have been disestablished

(of which three were

vacant at the time).

Staff whose positions were

disestablished or changed had

the opportunity to apply for or

express an interest in new roles

if they wished; some staff chose

to reapply, some staff chose to

progress with other options.

Ms Kidd says the changes are

aimed at ensuring that the libraries

have the right mix of skills available

to deliver the proposed services

and support the new hours.

“We are continuing to

build a great team of staff

across our libraries network,

and I’m confident the changes

will position us to meet

our changing communities’

expectations now and in the

future,” she says.

Sustainability key

to organic farming

There’s something for

everyone in the realm of

organic farming but as far

as Bill Martin is concerned,

it’s all about sustainability.

The Training College

Manager at Lincoln

University’s Biological

Husbandry Unit Organics

Trust (BHU) is happy to see

a surge in enthusiasm for

organic food production

as younger generations

become more aware of

environmental concerns.

He says the growing

popularity of organic

production in recent years

means that graduates are

now taking what they have

learned into a broader

range of sectors.

“It’s not just about

growing, wholesaling

and retailing food anymore. They’re

going into schools and teaching primary

and secondary schoolers about the

importance of sustainable farming and

gardening and really starting to embed the

philosophy into the education system.”

As far as conventional agricultural

practices are concerned, he says farmers

should be encouraged to optimise their

production, rather than maximise it at the

expense of the environment.

“We need to change our agricultural

paradigm and re-evaluate our priorities.”

Mr Martin says those interested in a

career in organics should enrol in the

one-year Diploma in Agri-Food Production

course, which is open to students either

with or without university entrance.

Introduced last year, it includes Tikanga

and Mahinga Kai components and can

lead to employment in organic primary

production or other sectors related

to organics, especially education and

hospitality.

“The course offers a good grounding

in the principles of organic agriculture,

teaching the philosophies and histories

of organics and providing practical

knowledge of how they are applied,” Mr

Martin says.

Apply now for the Diploma in Organic

Agri-Food Production and begin studying

in February 2019.

Hall ready for Friday’s

• By Anan Zaki

AFTER NEARLY nine

years of waiting, Lakeside’s

new memorial hall will

officially open on Friday.

The original Lakeside

Soldiers’ Memorial Hall

from 1917 was damaged

beyond repair after damage

from the September 4,

2010, earthquake.

Hall committee chairman

Dennis Carter says

the event will mark a significant

day for the town.

“Lakeside does not have

a church, school or a pub.

But it does have a hall.

The whole identity of the

district and the fact we can

say we come from Lakeside

is because the hall has been

rebuilt,” Mr Carter said.

Fifteen soldiers from

Lakeside were killed in

action in World War 1 and

World War 2, he said.

Fourteen of them were

killed in World War 1.

“About 22 per cent of

the soldiers that went

from Lakeside didn’t

come home. And the New

Zealand average was 18 per

cent,” Mr Carter said.

“So that tells you a

story about the First World

War.”

Inside the hall is an

honour board of those who

served in both world wars

and the Boer War, restored

photographs of soldiers

and a lithograph of statistics

and information about

World War 1.

The official ceremony

will commence with a

blessing by Ngai Tahu. A

Christian blessing will also

take place Mr Carter said.

There will also be a cake

and ribbon cutting event,

and speeches from special

guests.

The guests include

Mayor Sam Broughton and

SELWYN TIMES

Selwyn MP Amy Adams.

The event will also

include the planting of a

commemorative golden

totara tree and replacing

the sod which was

removed in the previous

ceremony which marked

the start of construction in

April last year.

Lakeside Soldiers’ Memorial

Hall project committee

member Alastair

Barnett said the hall is

unique due to its setting

and natural landscapes

surrounding it, including

unobstructed views of the

Southern Alps.

TEAM EFFORT:

Alastair Barnett

and Dennis Carter

Lakeside Soldiers

Memorial Hall.

Grow a career

in organics

Lincoln University’s Diploma in Organic Agri-Food Production will prepare

you for work in the organic sector or your own garden or smallholdings. It’s

a full-time, one-year programme that covers the theory and practice behind

contemporary organic agri-food production.

Join us in February to find out what growing organically on an agricultural

scale really means.

Takeaway Coffee Cups

go into the red bin!

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

plastic to make them waterproof so your drink doesn’t leak, but unfortunately this

makes them unable to be processed through the recycling plant.

Coffee cups can’t go in your organics bin either, even if it’s marketed as

“compostable” or “biodegradable”. We cannot currently accept these in our compost

process. Better yet, why not get a reusable coffee cup?

Steve Lowndes

Travelling the world paved way

Environment Canterbury

chairman Steve Lowndes

is not planning to run

in October’s local body

elections. Sophie Cornish

speaks to him about life

after local politics, Brexit,

and family

The ECan elections are

coming up this year and I

understand you may not be

running again, is that correct?

Yes, that’s my position at the

moment. It is never finally settled

until the time for nominations

to close, but at the moment, that

is what I am thinking. I will be

73 at the time of the election, I

would be 77 by the end of the

next term. I feel fit and well

enough but on the other hand

I really think a person younger

than me needs to take the lead.

There is nothing wrong with

being old, you have a degree of

wisdom and all those sorts of

things that are invaluable in local

government. But, the world is

changing very quickly and there

are a lot of very tough decisions

that need to be made. I am very

much aware that young people

are getting very concerned about

their future. It is they who need

to step up and get engaged in

local government. When I say

young, we have a councillor Lan

Pham. She’s terrific. She brings

an attitude and energy which is

inspiring to the council. There

are other younger councillors

too. I think it would be better

to step aside and let somebody

younger take over.

What will you do instead with

your time?

I have never been frightened

of time. I have done all sorts

of things in my life and being

frightened of time isn’t one of

them. I can paint, I can write,

I can do all sorts of things.

Nothing is ever really over, the

fact that I stepped down from

ECan doesn’t necessarily mean I

will completely leave the public

forum. I have no plans at all. It is

a wonderful space to be in, where

you don’t have to worry about

your future.

Tell me about the beginning

RELAXED:

ECan

chairman

Steve

Lowndes at

his Birdlings

Flat home.

of your career – how did it all

begin?

I was born and educated in

England and I went to art school

in the 1960s. My first job was as

an art teacher. After a little while

of that I thought: ‘Oh my god

am I going to be doing this for

the next 45 years?’ That sort of

freaked me out a little bit. So I got

a cargo boat to South America. I

ended up living there for a year

and a half year, mostly in Rio de

Janeiro, Brazil. I really enjoyed the

experience. From there I travelled

over land through South America

and Central America and the Caribbean

and the United States and

eventually arrived back in England.

And I thought: ‘Oh well that

was good.’ My ambition then was

to carry on. So I began working

in England again, as a publican,

which meant that I could save

money. I did that with my partner

Lisa Potts and then we set off on a

huge journey which basically took

us around the world.

Where did you travel to?

We went through Russia,

Afghanistan, Iran, around India

and ended up in Australia. On

our trip, we only took one tiny

aeroplane flight; the rest was by

truck and train. Australia was

very kind to us; we both became

Australian and lived there for a

while. Then we got a boat across

the Pacific and it called in at

Auckland. That was my first

experience of New Zealand, in

1974. Then our boat carried on

and went through the Panama

Canal and back to Europe. I then

lived in England again

and thought we would go travelling

once more. So we got a plane

to New York and brought a car

then started driving around the

US.

“I dream of a Pacific where this terrible disease has been eradicated and can no

longer cause fear, stigma and discrimination in families and communities.”

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.

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!

I want to thank the Pacific

Leprosy Foundation for

giving us back our future.

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.”

Please can you help other families like Lorena’s to

be free from the fear of leprosy?

A gift of $35 will provide preventative treatment for

one household contact of a leprosy patient.

A gift of $420 enables the treatment of an average

household in Kiribati, Samoa or the Solomon

Islands.

We had all sorts of adventures

in the US and Canada. We ended

up in San Francisco. At that point

Lisa became pregnant and a

friend Robyn we were travelling

with said: ‘Why don’t you go to

New Zealand, it’s a great place

to have kids’. So we did that. In

retrospect it is hard to imagine

that we didn’t head home, but no,

we came to New Zealand. We arrived

and brought a van in 1979

and started driving around. We

ended up in Akaroa and Lisa saw

the hospital there and said: “This

is where I will have the baby.”

Julian is now nearly 40-years-old.

He has a sister Alicia and they

both live in Australia, one in Sydney

and one in Melbourne. Lisa

and I split up in about 1998 and

my partner now is Susan

Morrow. We live at Birdlings Flat

and have been here for 20 years.

Tell me about your life living

in Akaroa?

The peninsula for me was representative

of a community, I had

spent 13 years travelling around

the world, community was something

I didn’t have, I didn’t belong

somewhere. Akaroa had a population

of about 700 people, a little

more than it does currently. It was

a self-sustaining little community

based on farming and fishing,

quite different to what it is today.

It was really a holiday destination

for Cantabrians, before it was

discovered by international tourists,

that began to happen in the

mid-1980s. Now, it is somewhat

overrun by cruise ships. It’s not

quite the same place it was in the

1970s, which is what attracted me

to it, a part from the fact it was

devastatingly beautiful. When you

went to live there, people were delighted

to know you had chosen to

live in that community, so you felt

part of it straight away. I started

off as a builder’s labourer, building

an extension to the school. I

gradually started to do work at the

Akaroa Museum and eventually

the curator retired and I was hired

to curate the collection. I was

there for about 15 years. I ended

up being chairman of the Museums

Association of New Zealand.

What happened next?

Then I became a Banks Peninsula

district councillor, with a

gentleman named Bob Parker and

we disbanded ourselves. The district

council wasn’t bankrupt, but

it was heading that way. There was

only about 7000 ratepayers which

wasn’t enough when we had to pay

for all things tourism. We tried to

amalgamate with city council, but

the people of Christchurch said

no. They didn’t want to take on

Banks Peninsula. So we decided

to vote to abolish ourselves and

the city council had no option

but to take over, this was in about

2005-2006. I stood for the city

council in 2006, and was defeated

by Claudia Reid. Then I started

painting, which is where I began,

by going to art school in the first

place. In 2016, someone said to be

why don’t you stand for ECan in

the election. You may recall that

in 2010, the Government took

away the commission of the elected

members of ECan and replaced

them with seven commissioners.

That continued for two terms of

local government until 2016. Then

ECan was opened up to partial

democratic elections. The chairwoman

Margaret Bazley finished,

so that left six ex-commissioners.

There were seven elected members

and six were remains of the old

appointed councillors and that

situation still remains. When the

council convened for the first

time, they voted for David Bedford

into the chair, he was

one of the councillors. Unfortunately,

David wasn’t very well and

he died in February of last year.

For some time he had been unable

to fulfil his role. I had been elected

deputy chair and I became the

acting chair until he resigned and

then I was elected into the chair

role.

2 February – 6 March 2019

Although born and raised in the American Midwest, John Emery

has spent the past twenty-five years shuttling back and forth

between Dayton, Ohio and Burkes Pass, New Zealand, where he

established a second home and studio in 2000. These places —

so far distant in miles and cultural experience — have distinctly

shaped Emery’s vision and art.

My painting process typically begins with a solitary object, my

sketchbook journal, or a bird’s song that triggers my curiosity,

a visual narrative is then constructed. As with all my works, some

elements become three-dimensional as I form them from paper,

the most versatile material I know. Thus, the tromp l’oeil illusion

of a painted object and the reality of a constructed object shift the

perspective and perception of the work and force the viewer to

consider the point where reality and the imagined meet.

The paintings, like memories, are often not what they seem.

The result is a personal narrative.

ECan chair not frightened by time

•From page 9

So the role for me has been one

of managing the council back

to full democracy, which will

take place in October. A thing I

have been keen to do is see that

climate change becomes front

and central of ECan’s thinking.

That has come about with the

newly-elected people who arrived

on council in 2016, they have

made a huge difference.

What did you learn from your

travelling experiences?

I feel sometimes that all the

roads I have travelled have led

to this point. So I have a huge

amount of experience of the

world at large and of different

kinds of people and how to deal

with them. I find all the skills I

learnt while travelling fit me very

well for the role of managing

a great number of people who

have very different and distinct

interests. It is really about people.

A Maori proverb that helps to

describe me politically is – He

aha te mea nui o te ao He tangata,

he tangata, he tangata. What is

the most important thing in the

world? It is the people, it is the

people, it is the people. People are

the same everywhere all around

the world, it doesn’t matter if

you meet an Indian on the banks

of the Amazon River or an

TALENT: Steve Lowndes has a love of art, especially painting.

American senator, we all laugh,

we all cry, we all smile. It’s the

universality of people. We are all

the same species.

How does living in England

compare to living in New

Zealand?

I have been here for 40 years,

my immediate family in England

has died, I have a few cousins

left, I write to them. England

is about the same size, but the

population of New Zealand is

what the population of England

was at the time of Henry VIII.

Now you have to imagine the

same land mass, with nearly 60

million people. It is nothing like

New Zealand. Last week, Sue and

I went to Jackson’s Bay, down

south. We stayed in a bach which

had no power, no connectivity.

When you walked to the beach,

there are no other houses, and

there is an absolutely stunning

empty landscape of mountains,

oceans, beaches. You would

have to go a long way in Britain

to find that, maybe in the north

of Scotland. It’s a completely

different experience living

here. It is one where we relate

very much to the land. At the

moment with Brexit, the English

have got themselves into a cleft

stick. They have this incredibly

binary situation to deal with,

half of them think they should

stay in the common market and

fight and the other half thinks

they should flee. Human beings

always have that decision, when

confronted with a situation, fight

or flight. It’s such a basic division

in our minds, I think that is

basically what is happening

with Brexit. So, I don’t envy the

English at all. I can’t even begin

to contemplate how I feel about

England anymore, because it

seems to belong to another era.

In the future when climate

change really begins to kick in,

New Zealand is wonderfully

placed to survive the worst

effects. We are surrounded by

ocean which takes away the

worst effects of heat, we can feed

ourselves, Australia can’t, Europe

can’t, 90 per cent of the world’s

population lives in the Northern

Hemisphere.

Tell me about your

family?

Julian, my son, works for

Skope, a Christchurch company

that makes refrigerators. He

manages their operations in

Australia. He has a son, who is

6-months-old. Alicia works for

an advertising agency called The

Monkeys, living in Melbourne

but she is going to come back

to New Zealand. She managed

to buy a third of a house in

Auckland in Pt Chevalier she’s

going to come back next month.

I am looking forward to her

coming back. My partner Sue’s

daughter Evie also lives in Pt

Chevalier, so those two are very

close.

Overhaul for school system

MANY STUDENTS in

Selwyn will be back at

school this week, hopefully

refreshed after the summer

holidays. While for many

parents and pupils it will

be a case of re-establishing

existing routines, for those

starting at a new school,

it can often be a bigger

process of adjustment.

In the broader context,

our entire school system

looks set for a major overhaul

following the release

late last year of a report by

an independent taskforce

into New Zealand’s education

system. This report

recommended radical

changes to the way our

schools are run including

removing most of the powers

currently held by school

boards of trustees. Under

the proposed reforms, the

Ministry of Education’s 10

regional offices would be

replaced with 20 education

hubs, each responsible for

around 125 schools.

Each of these hubs would

take over responsibility for

schools’ property, funding

and student achievement

and the hiring of school

principals, as well as coordinating

pools of relief teachers

and teacher aides for the

schools in the hub area.

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

While some school

boards do struggle with

managing their responsibilities

currently, many are

working extremely well. It

is therefore important that

parents understand the

impact of these changes

would which remove a lot

of decision-making abilities

from school communities.

It is proposed under the

new system that schools

would get less funding

for students from outside

their enrolment zone and

the number of out-of-zone

students would be capped

at each school.

A significant change for

integrated schools would

be that they would no longer

be allowed to select outof-zone

or non-preference

students and would instead

have to hold a ballot in

the same manner as state

schools. This change may

affect some families living

in Selwyn hoping to send

their children to integrated

schools in Christchurch.

The report also recommends

a major redistribution

of resources so that

priority is first given to

meeting the needs of students

from disadvantaged

backgrounds.

This follows on from work

that the previous National

Government had initiated

to replace the current decile

system with funding targeted

towards students with

specific risk factors.

Public consultation on

the recommendations of

the Tomorrow’s Schools

Review taskforce is open

until April 7 this year.

•The full report is at

https://conversation.

education.govt.

nz/conversations/

tomorrows-schoolsreview/

•I will also be hosting

an information evening

on the proposals in

Rolleston during March

for those who would like

to find out more or share

their views on how the

proposed reforms may

affect schooling here in

Selwyn.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Daddy Cool frontman comes back

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL: Australian singer Ross Wilson will perform at

Selwyn Sounds 2019.

• By Anan Zaki

THE FORMER frontman of a

popular Australian rock band is

coming back to the country for

the first time in more than 30

years.

Ross Wilson was the lead

singer of Melbourne-based band

Daddy Cool and will play solo at

Selwyn Sounds on March 2.

It’s also the first time that

the 71-year-old Australian will

perform solo in NZ.

“I’m happy to be coming

back. I’m sorry it took so long,”

Wilson said.

When he last performed in

the country in the 1980s, it was

as the lead singer with Daddy

Cool.

“[They] were quite big in New

Zealand, we played there three

times,” Wilson said.

“But for some reason I hadn’t

played there as a solo artist so

I’m looking forward to it.”

Unfortunately for Daddy Cool

fans, Wilson says the band won’t

perform again following the

deaths of two band members,

Ross Hannaford and Wayne

Duncan.

Daddy Cool’s last performance

was in 2014 when they

were inducted in the Victorian

Music Hall of Fame.

He says often

plays songs from

his bands Daddy

Cool and also

Mondo Rock

during his solo

performances.

“I have plans

probably in

about a year’s

time where I just

play Daddy Cool

music.”

Wilson’s music career

launched in 1964, and he is not

showing any sign of slowing

down.

“This year, I’m already booked

out solidly until the end of August.

I’m playing a couple of gigs

a week, festivals and a bunch

of stuff with John Farnham

headlining.”

“Just in support of him because

I wrote four songs that he

recorded over the years,” Wilson

said.

He last visited Christchurch

a year before the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

“I played on a little cruise that

went from Australia, it stopped

in Fiordland, Dunedin and then

Christchurch,” Wilson said.

“Because I was so upset about

the earthquake, having just

Jon Stevens

Leo Sayer

been there [a year before], I feel

like I have a connection.”

Wilson will land in Christchurch

the day before the March 2

Selwyn Sounds. He hopes to get

a chance to explore the city and

its surrounds while here.

“I’m not sure how long we’re

going to be staying there, but it’s

usually fly in and fly out . . . I’m

hoping we get a day afterwards

and enjoy Christchurch and the

area.”

Selwyn Sounds 2019 will be

headlined by the Little River

Band, supported by Leo Sayer,

John Stevens, The Golden Kiwis,

Peter Urlich, Midge Marsden,

Automatic 80s and Wilson.

Selwyn Sounds will be

held on Saturday, March 2,

at the Lincoln Domain.

Backyard Critters

Spider comes out at

night to catch its prey

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/

backyard-biodiversity-bugs-in-lincoln

A VERY colourful spider I’ve

observed around my Lincoln

section is an endemic orb

web spider called novaranea

queribunda.

The 5-7mm long spider is

the most colourful of the orb

web spiders and is found in

the North, South and Stewart

islands.

Spider colours can vary

greatly, including various

shades of green, yellow and

redish-brown.

They also have a very hairy

cephalothorax – that’s the fused

head and thorax structure in

spiders.

This spider species makes

its web in early evening and

removes it just before dawn.

The species often creates

stabilimenta, a thicker, more

conspicuous, non-capture silk

structure in the middle of its

web.

There is considerable debate

NIGHT OPERATOR: This

species of orb web spider

makes its web in the early

evening and removes it just

before dawn.

on the function of these

structures.

One suggestion is that

stabilimenta stop birds

plundering into them. Perhaps

more spiders need to use these

more conspicuous webs to stop

us humans walking into them.

Break from parenting

TWO HOURS, mini golf and

frozen yoghurt made a whole

week for Laura and I.

I can almost guarantee that it’s

not restricted to families where

one of the parents is at home

full-time, but until recently it had

been six months since Laura and

I had been on a date. That’s been

hard.

You get all caught up in

parenting and such that you can

forget what it’s like spending time

with the person you’ve chosen to

share your life with.

Getting a little bit of that for

a couple of hours was a great

feeling and has, honestly, left a

positive mark on the whole week.

And all of that was thanks to

the willingness of my mum and

step-dad to wade into the fray

that is looking after a wee angel

going through some serious

separation anxiety.

Every week, at least once,

Vittoria and I stay out at their

place in Waikuku Beach so I can

go to training with my North

Canterbury-based dragon boat

club.

It makes it easier for me, gives

Laura a wee break and a chance

for Vittoria to see some of her

grandparents.

Unfortunately, since Christmas,

and since Vittoria’s sense of

VITTORIA

& Matt

self-awareness has increased,

seeing me walk out the door in

training gear sets off some serious

waterworks.

Any parent will likely have a

story about the heartbreak of

seeing their wee one balling their

eyes out as they walk out. Like out

for a five minute trip to the shop,

or to work, or something.

Fire rages, homes at risk

For Vittoria, the heartbreak

usually lasts for a long time and

then starts again when I get back,

I guess to tell me off.

So asking them to come

into town to do the same

seemed like a big ask. How

would you feel asking someone

to spend a couple hours with

someone who actively lets them

know that they are horrifically

sad they aren’t you?

But this time, our charming

wee daughter was so well behaved

(and was so incredibly cute) that

my mum and step-dad offered

to sit her again so we can see a

movie. Just imagine this sentence

is a guy doing a little excited

dance, any kind you like.

Hopefully she’ll start being

good in North Canterbury.

the Mike Pero Motorsport Park, Ruapuna

on February 1-3, where the actionpacked

calendar includes Mainland

Muscle Cars, vintage racing, and sports

One of the most iconic racing events

in New Zealand, suitable for all ages, the

event will once again headline the popular

Formula 5000 single seater revival, along

with a strengthening Historic Touring

car category.

On the Sunday there will be specific

activities just for kids, including a bouncy

castle, face painting and, as always, you

can walk through the pits, meet the

drivers, teams and get to the all of the

School’s back

take care on crossings

Selwyn District Council is asking drivers to stay alert for children as schools return during the coming week.

Over 9,500 Selwyn children will be travelling to school. Many of these young people will be getting off

and on school buses, in and out of cars and walking, biking and scooting to and from school.

School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler reminds drivers that the only time drivers must stop

for pedestrians is on a pedestrian (zebra) crossing, at a school road patrol or kea crossing when the stop

lollipops are out, and when pedestrians have a green man at traffic signals.

A crossing point is an area that has been deemed by Council as the best place for pedestrians to

cross the road. It may have kerb buildouts to shorten the crossing distance and some may have a

pedestrian refuge in the middle of the road to cross the road in stages.

Pedestrians need to stop, look and listen before crossing the road at a cross point, and just like any

other section of road, vehicles have the right of way.

“I often see drivers stopping to let children cross at cross points. Although drivers may think it’s

courteous stopping in the lane, it’s incredibly dangerous and setting our children up for failure.

Children may develop an expectation that all vehicles will stop for them,” says Mrs Hautler.

Road safety educational resources for parents and children are available from Selwyn District Council.

Email stephanie.hautler@selwyn.govt.nz or phone 347 2705.

New easy to remember library

and service centre hours

Selwyn Libraries and service centres* will have new easy to remember hours of operation from

Friday 1 February 2019.

The changes are in response to customer research and a trial of extended opening hours undertaken

in 2018. Opening hours have been extended and standardised across the district, with the overall total

opening hours across the network increasing from 196 hours to 220 hours a week. The new hours are:

· Monday to Friday 9am–6pm (Lincoln and Rolleston open to 8pm on Thursdays).

· Saturday 10am–4pm

· Sunday 10am–4pm at Lincoln and Rolleston. Closed at Darfield and Leeston.

Alongside the extended hours, the digital and electronic resources are available 24/7.

*changes do not apply to the Rolleston Service Centre at Council Headquarters on Norman Kirk Drive

Have your say – Earthquake Prone Priority

Buildings and Strategic Routes

Your place to meet, discover and connect

We’re currently consulting on the proposed Earthquake Prone Priority Buildings and Strategic Routes.

The Council is welcoming submissions or comments on the Council’s proposal for roads, footpaths

and thoroughfares which should be prioritised because of the risk associated with the collapse of

unreinforced buildings in an earthquake, and to identify and prioritise any strategic emergency routes

that may be impeded by building collapse. On 1 July 2017, changes were introduced to the Building

Act 2004 which affect the way earthquake-prone buildings are identified and managed. One of the

changes provides for public consultation, to assist Council to identify the most vulnerable buildings

(earthquake-prone buildings which could pose a danger) on routes where there are high numbers of

vehicles and pedestrian traffic, or are of strategic importance.

Changes to the Act shorten the time frames for identifying, strengthening or demolishing earthquakeprone

buildings. Once the owners of priority buildings have been notified by Council, they have 7.5

years to strengthen or demolish the building(s). This is a much shorter time frame than the Act allows

for other earthquake-prone buildings (15 years).

We propose to prioritise the following thoroughfares:

1. High Street Southbridge from Hastings Street to St James Street

2. High Street Leeston from Market Street to Anderson Square.

No strategic routes have been identified that would be impeded by a building collapse which don’t have

an alternative access option.

To view the Statement of Proposal (SOP) and to make a submission, go to www.selwyn.govt.nz/

eqpronebuildings. Hard copy SOPs and submission forms are also available at all Council Service

Centres and libraries.

Selwyn Libraries celebrate

Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is the biggest festival in China, celebrated over

15 days with fireworks, lantern displays, and traditional lion and

dragon dances. This year on Tuesday 5 February is the beginning

of the Year of the Pig.

Selwyn Libraries are offering Chinese New Year craft activities

during February including lantern and origami making.

For more information go to selwynlibraries.co.nz.

Council services on Waitangi Day

On Wednesday 6 February some Council services may be closed or

unavailable due to the Waitangi Day public holiday.

Council buildings in Rolleston, all libraries and service centres,

Rolleston Community Centre, West Melton Community and

Recreation Centre and Lincoln Event Centre will be closed.

The Selwyn Aquatic Centre will be open from 8am–8pm. Sheffield,

Darfield and Southbridge pools will be open 1pm–7pm. Pines

Resource Recovery Park will be open from 9am–4.30pm.

Bin collections will occur as normal.

Lakeside Soldiers Memorial

Hall opening

Selwyn District Council is hosting an official opening of the Lakeside

Soldiers Memorial Hall on Friday 1 February at 4pm.

The community celebration will start with a welcome and a karakia

followed by light refreshments. The opening ceremony will begin at

around 4pm.

The hall was rebuilt in 2018 to serve the local rural community and

maintain its status as a soldier’s war memorial. It will be used for

local groups, charity groups, agricultural training and special events.

Tenth year of 100% dog

registration in Selwyn district

For the tenth consecutive year Selwyn District Council has achieved

100% re-registration of known dogs for the year.

This is based on dogs registered in the 2017/18 year which were

still on the Council’s records. There are now 13,659 dogs registered

for the 2018/19 year.

Senior Animal Control Officer Steve Clarke says that result indicates

that Selwyn is a dog-friendly district, where dog owners are

responsible and take good care of their pets.

“People love their dogs and are usually more than happy to pay the

registration fee to avoid seizure,” he says. “The Dog Control Act

gives Council officers power to seize any unregistered dogs, but

thankfully it hasn’t come to that.”

Mr Clarke says a number of factors contribute to the Council

maintaining its 100% registration, as required by law. This includes

the comparatively low fees for registering their dogs and Council’s

online payment service.

“The fee is discounted if it’s paid in July, with the full fee payable

from August. If fees are not paid the dog owner can expect an

infringement notice.”

“Online registration has made it even easier for people to register

their dogs – 1322 of our owners used our Dogs Online website to

make alterations to their record with 914 of them using it to pay

the registration. Of our 8519 owners, 7122 received their renewal

notices via email.”

At the end of the 2017/18 registration year, there were 13,524 dogs

registered with Council which was up from 13,202 in the 2016/17 year.

The simple but profound

truth that inspired Maria

of educational reform was that

children teach themselves.

At Burnham Country Montessori

teachers help to cultivate each

child’s natural love of learning

and inquisitiveness, facilitating

children in developing a complete

personality which allows them to

become independent learners.

When children fully engage with

their learning the experiences

become more memorable, helping

lay down the foundations for school

life ahead.

At Burnham Country Montessori,

children have enriching encounters

in an extremely unique and

spacious country setting. The

children learn about the world

around them, enjoying country

walks and connecting and caring

for animals; feeding lambs,

chickens and pigs.

NEW CHiLdCARE

CENTREs iN sELWYN

The demand for early learning

and childcare facilities in Selwyn

continues to grow.

With a young population filling new subdivisions, the need

for these facilities is higher than ever before. In fact, many

are already at maximum capacity and have waiting lists.

Enrolling your child early is a must.

Last year saw the opening of Annabel’s West

Melton Preschool on Kingsdowne Drive and

the latest centre to open is Three Trees

located at 26 Dynes Rd, Rolleston. This will

soon be followed by BestStart Faringdon

East on Maddison East Road and plans

are in motion for another two childcare

centres in Rolleston.

The fast rate at which these centres are

appearing is confirmation of the growing

need to cater to young families within the

district.

an informed choice for

development.

If you haven’t already been with

all ages, the park boasts a flying

Developing Children’s Potential

Our Vision is to enhance the mana of the child. Our

environment is inclusive, family-focused and empowering,

a care and education curriculum that enhances the

capacity to learn and develop children to their full

potential, in line with the Te Whāriki (New Zealand) early

childhood curriculum.

We endeavour to provide an atmosphere that is warm,

accepting and welcoming to both children and families.

Our emphasis is on maintaining a home like environment,

which allows age groups to spend time together, across

a Nursery, Toddlers room and 2 Preschool rooms. We

operate an open-door policy, where parents and family are

welcomed into the centre at any time. We believe parent

participation sends strong positive messages to the child

that they are supported and are part of the childcare

environment.

The centre’s spaciousness is appealing to both the

children and parents who appreciate the play and learning

opportunities provided at Blossoms Educare. Learning

through play is our focus, and we believe children learn by

having hands on experiences where they test their own

theories and challenge themselves.

As a neighbour, Blossoms Educare and West Rolleston

Primary School have developed a close relationship.

Children soon to graduate participate in a Transition to

Schools programme, visiting the new entrants classroom

up to 4 times a term.

opportunities, contact Blossoms Educare on 0800

sELWYN PARENTiNG

NETWORK

Parenting... it’s often described as the hardest yet most rewarding

experience a person can have! An opportunity to nurture from infancy

- promoting and supporting all the physical, emotional, social and

intellectual needs of our children, and empowering them into adulthood...

and yes: it sure can be a busy rollercoaster of incredible moments,

euphoric highs, and of course more challenging and tougher times

too. Selwyn Parenting Network (SPN) was born from a desire and belief

that all families should have access to active support, resources and

understanding. We know that parenting can be tough, but we also know

that with the ‘right help at the right time’ the lives of parents, carers and

children can be transformed.

Since the inception of our charitable organisation over six years ago,

the purpose of our work has remained the same: To strengthen Selwyn

communities by providing support to local parents and caregivers of

children of any age. We have fast become a local ‘parent advice bureau’

within the rapidly expanding Selwyn region: a network that can facilitate

your needs as a parent/caregiver and put you in touch with many specific

service providers and wider community organisations, all of whom can

support and empower you to fulfil your role with the skills, resources and

contacts that you need.

As we forge forward into 2019 we welcome you to follow us on our various

digital platforms - including our social media accounts on Facebook &

Instagram - where you can keep up to date with all that we are planning

within the community; access links to valuable resources and informative

articles; book places for one-off guest speaker evenings, and of course

attend our two annual flagship events including Children’s Day NZ and

Family Fun Day in October.

To this end, we warmly invite you ALL to be a part of our 2019 SPN

Children’s Day Event on Sunday 3rd March (12pm - 3pm) proudly

brought to you with the support of our principal sponsors Faringdon. We

encourage you and the whole family to pack your drink bottles, sunhats

and picnic rugs, and head on down to enjoy a wide range of fun free

activities and entertainment at our venue of choice: Foster Park, Rolleston.

Lock in the date now! We cannot wait to see you there for a fun filled day

to celebrate our children - Its totally FREE for all!

fostering strong relationships

with children and families.

fOsTER THE

LOvE Of

REAdiNG

What greater gift to give to a child than

the love of reading and appreciation of

books. It’s never too early to introduce

books and start reading to your children.

Keep it short and simple

Toddlers need to move, so don’t worry if they act out

stories or just skip, romp, or tumble as you read to

them. They may be moving, but they are listening.

TIP: Toddlers frequently have shorter attention spans

than babies. Look for text that is short and simple.

Read a little bit, several times a day.

Choose fun, engaging books

Books featuring animals or machines invite

movement and making sounds. Books with flaps or

different textures to touch keep hands busy. Books

with detailed illustrations or recurring items

hidden in the pictures are great for exploring and

discussing. TIP: Pause to let your toddler finish

a phrase or chant a refrain. Once your toddler is

familiar with the rhyme or pattern, make mistakes

on purpose and get caught.

Make it an adventure

Choose books about everyday experiences and

feelings. Your child will identify with the characters

as they dress, eat, visit, nap, and play. TIP: Set up a

zoo with all the stuffed animals. Stage a race with

the toy cars. Dress up as characters from a favourite

story.

Ask questions

Take time to listen to your toddler’s answers.

Toddlers have strong opinions and interesting ideas

about the world. Encourage your toddler to tell you

what he or she thinks. You’ll build language skills

and learn what makes your toddler tick at the same

time. TIP: use this as special one-on-one time with

your child.

Make it fun

Read favourite stories again and

again. Seek out books about

things your toddler especially

likes — trains, animals, the

moon. These books may

extend a toddler’s attention

span and build enthusiasm for

reading. TIP: Try a different story

or a different time during the day.

Reading with a very young child is

primarily about building positive

experiences with books, not finishing every book you

start.

For more information and great ideas for reading to

children of all ages, visit www.readingrockets.org

SELWYN TIMES

BABIES & BOOKS

Babies start learning as soon as

they are born so it’s never too

early to read to your baby. Get

into the habit of reading to your

child regularly with baby friendly

books designed to be fun with

bright colours and simple

pictures. TIP: Keep a little board

book in your handbag or nappy

bag to keep baby entertained

when in waiting rooms, etc

READING TO OLDER CHILDREN

It’s easy to send older children

off to bed with a book, but they

also love to be read to or, in turn,

read aloud to you. It’s also a great

opportunity to have special time

with an older child and discover

what they know about the world.

TIP: Ask your older child to read

to younger siblings; it can be a

great learning time for everyone!

Empowering children with a holistic approach

Providing a supportive environment where tamariki are

encouraged to develop confidence by being able to take

risks, and are affirmed as capable learners, is the key for

learning at Paradise for Little Angels in Rolleston.

Owners Marianna and Michael Inch ensure that tamariki

within their centre are empowered and encouraged to

reflect on their own learning process. All learners and their

learning are seen as competent and respected, making

a valued contribution to our local schools and wider

community.

“It’s all about quality care and education, where tamariki

are free to run, have fun, burn energy and just be kids”.

says Marianna who adds that outdoor play is important to

a child’s development and Paradise provides this with its

1500 square meter natural environment.

Children’s cultures are highly visual in the environment.

Teachers acknowledge the cultural skills and expertise

that parents bring to the service and use these well in the

programme. Teachers encourage tamariki to develop

their social competence through a range of meaningful

contexts such as problem solving and creative play (ERO

2017)

Since 2016, Paradise for Little Angels has adopted a

Reggio Emilia approach to their learning and their tamariki

have loved exploring projects on their own interests. The

centre also works closely with local school who share their

passion for this learning philosophy.

Infants and toddlers have time and space to freely

explore the well-resourced and inviting environment.

(ERO 2017). If you want your child to explore nature at its

best, experiencing trees and adventure gardens, water

slides, and have your 4 year old experience a sleepover

at preschool, feel free to have a look at Paradise for Little

Angels.

“A child’s

development

is like the

opening of a

flower bud”

Enrolling

now for 2019

Open 7.30am-5.30pm

Children enjoy a physical environment that

RECYCLEd uNdER

sEATsMART RECYCLiNG

PROGRAMME

The SeatSmart recycling programme is

removing potentially unsafe child car seats

from circulation and making journeys safer.

The Council partnered with

Seatsmart in March 2016 to

have old car seats recycled at a

heavily subsidised rate. 186 car

seats have been dropped off at

the Pines Resource Recovery

Park which equals 651kg of

plastic and 93kg of metal being

diverted from landfill.

Selwyn residents can take their

unwanted car seats to the Pines

Resource Recovery Park for a $15

charge (normally $25).

The seats are dismantled

through social enterprise groups

or Department of Corrections

community work programmes. The

recovered plastic is recycled into

products for the building industry,

metal parts are taken to metal

recyclers, and the harnesses will be

used by Karkt NZ and The Green

Collective who make handmade

bags.

Booster and convertible seats can be

recycled through the programme,

along with capsules, but polystyrene

seats are not part of the programme.

Selwyn School Road Safety

Coordinator Stephanie Hautler says

all car seats have an expiry date

on them and over time seats can

be damaged from uV light, heat,

general wear and tear or in a crash.

You can find information about

how to check a seats expiry date at

seatsmart.co.nz.

Locally, the Council has trained

Looking for an early childhood centre that provides quality

education and care for your child?

Enrolling your child at The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool & Nursery

Rolleston or West Melton will give them the best start to a

lifetime of learning!

The Cat’s Pyjamas centres have been well supported by the

Selwyn community since they opened 10 years ago in Rolleston

and 7 years ago in West Melton.

“It’s wonderful having age appropriate rooms, higher teacher/

children ratios, large dedicated playgrounds, and a wealth of

resources and equipment where children can have lots of fun

whilst learning,” says Tracy Summerfield, who with husband

Gavin, own and operate The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool & Nursery

centres in West Melton and Rolleston.

“We have wonderful teachers, great family support and

really feel part of our communities.” A lot of thought goes into

delivering a stimulating programme that enriches the learning for

children.

With meaningful experiences, like special visits from the

residents of Fitzroy of Merivale Resthome and the SPCA, and

excursions an important part of The Cat’s Pyjamas’ programme,

the children will again enjoy pursuing their interests with unique

experiences into the community like travelling on a bus and

visiting places such as the Te Taumutu Marae, The Airforce

Museum of NZ, and the Isaac Theatre Royal.

“We love making learning fun and instilling in children a

passion for learning through play,” adds Tracy.

The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool & Nursery offers quality and

affordable childcare. All children over 3 years of age are eligible

to receive 20 hours free education with no optional charges.

A HEALTHY ANd

ACTivE LifEsTYLE

Regular active play, limited sitting and enough good-quality sleep

are important for a young child’s healthy growth and development.

Sit Less

1. Provide regular activity breaks to limit the amount

of time a child spends sitting.

2. Discourage screen time for under-two-year-olds

and limit screen time to less than one hour every

day for children aged two years or older – less is best!

3. Limit time in equipment that restricts free

movement.

Move More

1. Provide fun activities that support physical, social,

emotional and spiritual growth (at least three hours

every day for toddlers and preschoolers, spread

throughout the day).

2. Include plenty of opportunities for active

play: – that develop movement competence and

confidence – that provide sufficient challenges to

build resilience and encourage creativity through

exploration – where children are by themselves as

well as interacting with others, such as parents,

siblings, friends, whānau/family and other caregivers

– that include a variety of indoor and outdoor

activities, especially activities involving nature.

Sleep Well

1. Babies (birth to three months) should

have 14 to 17 hours good-quality

sleep every day, including daytime

sleeps centred round their physical

and emotional needs.

2. Infants (four to twelve months) should

have 12 to 15 hours good-quality sleep

every day, including daytime sleeps,

which will tend to decrease as they get

closer to one year of age.

3. Toddlers (one to two years inclusive)

should have 11 to 14 hours of goodquality

sleep every day, including at least

one daytime sleep.

4. Pre-schoolers (three to four years

inclusive) should have 10 to 13 hours

of good-quality sleep every day, with

consistent bedtimes and wake-up times.

SELWYN TIMES

Innovative nature based childcare

Now opeN IN RollestoN

A state of the art early childhood education centre

has been built in Rolleston. Opened last week the

Three Trees Learning Centre has been architecturally

designed to optimise learning on its 3,050 square

metres of land, next door to Foster Park. Children

at the centre will be able to explore and develop in

a fun yet nurturing environment with the freedom

to lead their own learning through uninhibited

discovery with an on-site forest and strong nature/

outdoor focus. “Children learn most effectively

when connecting deeply with nature through play

experiences,” advises Jenny who with business

partner, Libby will operate the Three Trees Learning

Centre.

Drawing on popular early childhood philosophies,

the Three Trees Learning Centre’s uniquely holistic

way will integrate the best learning practices of the

Reggio Emilia approach. Respectful relationships and

primary care giving will be important factors while

taking learning out of the classroom and into a natural

environment will offer amazing experiences that aid

each child’s physical and intellectual growth, social

and emotional skills, and general health and wellbeing.

The Three Trees Learning Centre’s philosophy

emphasises respect for its tamariki. This includes the

children’s unique attributes and origins while trusting

them to investigate, explore and be curious so they

become resilient, persistent learners.

Primary care giving and respectful relationships

with their peers, along with freedom to explore

through natural discovery will be key principles. With

low ratios ensuring small group sizes, the teachers/

kaiako will work with the children in a nurturing,

encouraging and inspiring way, sharing their

discoveries and forming strong bonds with them.

Registered teachers, Jenny and Libby worked

with the architects, bringing their knowledge of early

learning and vision of a dream centre to life “It’s

taken considerable thought and planning. Children

at our early childcare centre will have an amazing

experience,” commented Libby Cunniffe Director.

The centre is well-ventilated and

acoustically designed, supporting the

health and well-being of the children

and staff. With it opening to the

outdoors whether rain or shine, the

children will have freedom to play

outside (dressed accordingly).

There will also be flexibility in

transitioning so each child can

progress at their own pace, with

a collaborative approach taken

where the child, their whānau and

their primary caregiver are involved

and there is smooth transition from the

beginning.

The Three Trees Learning Centre will cater for

babies and children from 0-6 years of age, providing

all meals and items such as nappies and wipes and

will be open from 7.30am until 6pm, weekdays. If you

would like to learn more about Three Trees Learning

Centre, go to www.threetreeslearningcentre.co.nz

and check their Facebook page where you can follow

the centre’s progress and share in its emerging story.

With nature we live, through nature we learn.

Animal Evac New Zealand, an

organisation dedicated to the rescue of

animals in the event of a disaster, has just

presented a comprehensive report on

animal disaster law reform at Parliament.

The presentation, authored by Animal

Evac co-founder Steve Glassey and

supported by MP Gareth Hughes, was

launched with guest speaker Craig

Fugate, the former Director of the Federal

Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)

via video conference who spoke about

the need to have animals included in

emergency plans.

Making sure animal welfare is catered for in the event

of a disaster is a nationwide concern.

The report found that New Zealand had

not learned the lessons from Hurricane

Katrina, as the US had; nor had it learned

the lessons from many domestic civil

defence emergencies and Mr Glassy

warns that “every day we choose not

to act, we place in harm’s way not only

animals but humans who care about

them too”.

Animal Evac New Zealand is a charity

comprised of Regional Coordinators

who work with Civil Defence Emergency

Management Groups to ensure the needs

of animals are better served in future

emergencies. Steve Glassey and Theresa

Parkin formed the charity in 2018,

following the devastating Edgecumbe

flood, which saw over 1,000 animals left

behind in need of rescue.

While there is a primary focus on

companion animals, Animal Evac

works to advocate for all animals that

are vulnerable or affected by disasters.

A national pool of trained Animal Evac

volunteers is currently being established

throughout New Zealand to provide

surge capacity in support of regional

animal welfare emergency response.

TrAineD volunTeers wAnTeD

Animal Evac is currently recruiting volunteers throughout New Zealand in Wellington, Auckland,

Christchurch and Palmerston North with applications now open for their 2019 Foundation Course.

It is time to make those New Year

resolutions so why not begin 2019 by

taking some time for yourself and joining

one of the wide range of nightclasses that

are on offer at Papanui High School.

The start of a new year is the ideal

opportunity to get inspired to get out and

learn something new and meet some new

people? Classes for Term 1 begin from

Monday 11 February and the options are

extensive from Art to Yoga and everything

in between we are sure regardless of your

age or interest you will find something

to tempt you. Classes at Papanui High

School are held in a warm, friendly relaxed

environment and our tutors are supportive

and well qualified in their chosen fields.

One of our new courses on offer is

Cake Design, taught by Paula Profitt from

Sweet Revenge Bakery. Paula is a very

experienced Cake Designer and she will

teach students how to layer and fill and ice

a cake to a smooth finish, piping techniques

and the art of a good drizzle along with

mirror glazes and chocolate decorations.

You will also learn how to make fondant

cake toppers in various styles.

For further information and enrolment

in any of our courses please visit our

website www.papanui.school.nz go to the

Adult Education tab at the top right of the

screen and then browse courses, or email

Barbara Roper rpb@papanui.school.nz

or telephone our office on 3520701.

New experiences at WEA

It is almost time for the new term to

start here at the Canterbury Workers

Educational Association (WEA). Just as the

new year brings a chance for us all to reflect

and set goals for positive change in the year

ahead, so to does the new school year for

us at the WEA, as we plan and schedule

courses, talks and learning opportunities

across the coming months. Positive change

(whether for personal or planetary gain)

is what the WEA is all about and we are

excited to offer plenty to support positive

change in the Term 1 programme (which

runs February 11th to April 7th).

With new courses in printmaking and

creative writing, and workshops ranging

from crafting feminism to renaissance

dance there is plenty to help you get creative

this summer.

We also have talks coming up from and

about some truly inspiring people and

organisations. We will be joined by Mojo

Mathers on 20th February (New Zealand’s

first deaf Member of Parliament) for a

look at why disability representation in

politics matters for all of us. Then during

Seaweek (6th March) we will hear from the

volunteers at Sea Shepherd on the threats

to our underwater ecosystems and the

work they are doing to protect them. There

are also talks about Marie Curie, Ernest

Shackleton and William Morris to mention

but a few.

For those wanting to take action in their

own lives to make a difference, a course in

taking sustainability to the next level will

be on Wednesday evenings (it even has

dinner included) followed by one on how

to live well with less (Living Tiny(er)) on

Thursday evenings.

All in all there are more than 40 listed

combines artistic and digital talents, then

this outstanding, FREE, entry level course

delivered by local Training Provider

Trainme, is perfect for those wishing to

pursue, graphic design, photography or

digital media as a career.

The course covers the introduction to

media techniques such as drawing and

photography. Students will learn to use

design software and create their own design

concepts while collaborating with other

students on creative projects.

This course is FREE to students aged 16

to 19 and they only have to have NCEA 1

to join. Students without NCEA 1 can be

admitted, if they show artistic or digital

aptitude.

“Many feel that school is not working for

them or they left without qualifications,”

says Rhys Pollard, Marketer with tertiary

educator Trainme. “While not necessarily

academically minded, they do

have artistic talents and are very

much into digital technology.”

“This FREE six-month

Trainme course, combines

these in a very hands-on,

practical way, giving them an

intro into various digital media.

This way, they can decide which

direction to pursue as their

career focus.”

“As an NZQA approved

programme, NCEA credits

are built in, so if they apply

SELWYN TIMES

themselves, they can graduate with a New

Zealand Certificate in Arts and Design

Level 2, as well as gaining credits towards

NCEA level 1 or 2.” Says Pollard.

“NCEA results will depend on how many

credits they bring to the course to start

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

like school at all.”

Successful Graduates from this

programme could pathway into higher

study in media arts, which could include

graphic design, video production,

photography or one of the many emerging

digital-based careers. Places are limited, so

students are encouraged to apply as soon as

they can.

CHASE: Tim Field tries

A WIN for Leeston-Southbridge

on Saturday has kept them in

touch with country premier

one-day cricket competition

leaders Southbrook.

Southbrook cruised past

Oxford’s 109 runs with six

wickets to spare, while Tim

Gruijters led the way for

Leeston-Southbridge in their sixwicket

win over Darfield at the

Darfield Domain. Gruijters’ 3-11

off nine overs helped restrict

Darfield to 102 all out.

Leeston-Southbridge’s middleorder

combination of Ben

Chamberlain (44 not out) and

Ben Donkers (37) then lifted the

run chase out of danger when

they were in early trouble at 9/3.

The win maintained Leeston-

Southbridge’s grip on second

place. Kaiapoi and Sefton also

had wins over the weekend.

Only run-rate separates the

teams in fourth and sixth on the

table, with Oxford, Cheviot and

Kaiapoi all on 27 competition

points after nine rounds.

A century from Fraser Sheat

helped Sefton to victory over

Weedons by five wickets.

Weedons’ 210/9 was no match

for Sheat’s 104 off 92 balls.

Cheviot’s choice to bat first

against Kaiapoi soon back-fired

as they were reduced to 17/7.

They were eventually

dismissed for 70, with Raj Saini

and Wayne Bell taking three

wickets each. Kaiapoi cruised to

their target for the loss of just

four wickets.

On Saturday, Weedons

will host Darfield, Leeston-

Southbridge will welcome

Kaiapoi, Oxford will travel to

Cheviot, and Southbrook and

Sefton will battle it out at the

Southbrook Domain.

Points: Southbrook 39;

Leeston-Southbridge

33; Sefton 30; Oxford 27;

Cheviot 27; Kaiapoi 27;

Weedons 18; Darfield 17.

Lexus F celebrates 10-year milestone

• By Ross Kiddie

THE letter F for Lexus

represents the high performance

division of the company and

also a connection to Fuji

Speedway, the chief test site

for Lexus performance vehicle

development.

Lexus F has been around for

10 years, the concept started

with one of my all-time favourite

cars, the blistering V8-powered

IS-F, and today that milestone

is celebrated with another V8

beauty, the GS-F, a coupe-styled

sedan which has practicality on

its side.

While the GS-F isn’t new as

a car, the special edition model

stands out for its bold looks and

cosmetic detailing, the exterior is

matte grey only, and the trim is a

blue/cream combination. If you

think that sounds weird, it isn’t,

the combination works well, and

in true Lexus fashion the GS-F is

the epitome of luxury and performance.

In technical terms, the GS-F’s

engine is a 5-litre quad-camshaft

unit. It is a real powerhouse with

a massive 351kW and 530Nm of

torque. If you take into account

that peak power is available tall

in the rev band at 7100rpm,

and torque across a wide spread

– 4800rpm to 5600rpm – it

revs freely to the top end and

is strong in its run to that high

level.

Drive is channelled through

an eight-speed transmission

through to the rear wheels. With

the low and close gearbox ratios

there’s never a point where you

think acceleration is going to

wilt.

On that subject, Lexus claim

A NEW sport utility vehicle

will be launched by Lexus New

Zealand next month.

Simply badged UX the newcomer

will be available in seven

different variants, five of them

LEXUS GS-F: Special anniversary edition.

a 4.6sec time to reach 100km/h

from a standstill. It will also

lunge from 80km/h to 120km/h

in 3.8sec, and make 270km/h if

laws allowed.

These are quick and exciting

figures which easily satisfy, and

if you let the engine breathe freely

it affords a sound that is truly

enticing, it wails and thunders

through the exhaust, especially

on start-up and in sport mode.

My wife and I used the GS-F

for a long Christmas holiday

road trip, covering over 1400km

in the evaluation car. Most of

the driving was on highways,

and it certainly served to prove

you could cover a lot of ground

quickly, and comfortably, without

burning through unnecessary

amounts of fuel.

Lexus claim an 11.3-litre per

100km (25mpg) combined cycle

average. I had no trouble eclipsing

that figure on our journey,

featuring new self-charging

hybrid electric powertrains, while

two come with conventional

petrol engines.

There are Limited, F Sport and

standard grades with a choice of

front wheel drive, or all-wheel

drive in the standard and Limited

the fuel usage gauge frequently

falling into the 9.7l/100km

(29mpg) region.

That aside, the GS-F is largely

about performance and the

driveline engineering has been

developed so that the power outputs

are managed without too

much being asked of the traction

control network.

The suspension is obviously

a fully independent type with

front wishbones and a multiple

link system supporting the rear

axles. The ride is fabulous, and

even in sport mode which firms

the suspension slightly there is

little compromise in ride quality.

Yet, as you apply power out

of a corner, the pure sensation

of rear-drive is evident; it squats

and delivers with controlled

poise.

A torque vectoring differential

along with huge rear Michelin

tyres (275/35 x 19in) provide

grade hybrids.

The UX 250h self-charging hybrid

electric variants are expected

to make up 65 per cent of UX

sales.

With a 2-litre petrol engine,

the self-charging hybrid electric

model is rated at 135kW with

substantial grip, there is a lot

of power on tap but it goes to

ground well.

It’s also nice to know that if

a corner looms just a little too

quickly, huge brakes with Brembo

calipers quickly slow speed, pedal

feel is solid and totally reassuring.

With so much performance

on offer, it’s hard to believe the

GS-F is also true to the Lexus

spirit of comfort and luxury,

the entire in-cabin area is fabulous

to be in. I don’t believe the

sports style seats on the anniversary

edition are as cushioning

underneath as its predecessors,

however, that’s a small price to

pay for such an exciting car to

be in.

The GS-F lives up to its development

criteria. It is racetrack

inspired with onboard lap timers

and drive modes which would

allow you to have fun on club

days at the circuit.

combined fuel consumption of

plenty of belongings can be carried

Personally, I just enjoyed the

whole driving experience, and

I guess at $178,400 it needs to

Summer stunners which like warm

As the temperatures soar, several plants bounce to the fore, producing a colour

through flashy foliage or brilliant blooms. It’s all about colour, colour and more

colour. Rachel Vogan reports

1. SALVIA ‘AMISTAD’

Perennial sages have had a real

resurgence over recent years and

when this one arrived a couple of

years ago, I was quick to snap it up.

This is a taller variety, reaching

1m in height, which makes it a

good anchor tenant for the back of

the border. It looks a treat mixed in

with white roses and other showy

blooms.

The dark purple flowers sit pertly

above the green foliage and look a

picture until the first frosts arrive.

Protect from frost where possible or

take a few cuttings to over

winter and replant again next

spring.

Great contender for a larger patio

tub. The bees love it.

2. BEGONIA WATERFALL

SERIES

These newish begonias are

just the ticket for all-year-round

summer and autumn colour.

Having a low growing habit, they

have been designed to cover areas

of soil to provide carpets of colour

until winter arrives or early frosts

appear. They produce a wonderful

cascade of colour in hanging

baskets.

Nestle in a warm, dry

spot over winter and they

will bound back to life again

in late spring.

3. CORNUS FLORIDA

‘CHEROKEE SUNSET’

A variegated dogwood is

just the ticket for gardens that

want some contrasting and

colourful foliage at the back of the

garden.

VIVID: This bidens variety is named camp fire. Centre – Perennial sage amistad is great for bees but watch the frosts; Begonias are a brilliant autumn orange.

temperatures

With a tall, slim habit, this

small tree cloaks itself in pretty

foliage for nine months of the

year. As the leaves appear in

spring, creamy flowers sit on the

branches just adding the plant’s

appeal.

Protect from gale-force winds,

or plant where a fence or other

trees will provide protection.

4. HYDRANGEA ‘FLOWER

MASTER BLUE’

The big blue mophead

hydrangea is a ripper. Its flower

heads are some of the biggest

I have ever seen! It forms a

medium-sized shrub and will

cope with some sun. To keep

the flowers a rich blue colour

feed with aluminium sulphate,

which is available in the garden

stores and sometimes labelled

‘hydrangea blue fertiliser’.

It comes in both liquid and

powdered forms.

Top tip: to make blue

hydrangeas pink, fertilise

with lime and dolomite.

5. NEW: ROSE ‘STRAWBERRY

BLONDE’

A new floribunda rose produces

masses of golden-apricot blooms

that soften with age, fading into

bleached blonde shades. The

blooms have a good scent, which

adds to its appeal. It forms a

compact bush from which dozens

of blooms will appear over the

season.

A good option for a large patio

planter or tub. Like all roses, it

will appreciate regular watering.

6. DAY LILY

As the name suggests, the

blooms on these hardy lilies

only last a day. However, as they

produce such an abundance of

blooms, they are rarely without

a flower over the summer,

making them hard to go past for

a flowering option in full sun

and poor soils. Once established,

daylilies will withstand long

dry periods and require little

or no care. For foodies, both

the flowers and buds are edible.

Clumps are easy to divide too,

so after a few seasons, you will

be able to split the plants into

several bits.

7. BIDENS FERULIFOLIA

‘CAMP FIRE’

What a wee ripper this plant

is. Mine has romped through

winter and has been bursting

with blooms since November.

It forms a low-growing mound,

which spreads out to about 80cm.

It looks like a soft plant, which

wouldn’t tolerate a lot, but it copes

with neglect and survives happily

with just a regular watering

regime. It self-cleans so there is

no need for deadheading – simply

plant and walk away.

Wonderful perennial for patio

tubs and window boxes.

8. PENSTEMON

‘CHA CHA CHERRY’

The knee-high bright red blooms

of this penstemon are just

wonderful. Once the flowers

begin around Christmas time

they continue for months,

providing a gloriously long

period of colour. Choose a

sunny spot and enrich the

soil, if possible. The clumps

establish themselves over a

year or two reaching 80–90cm

wide eventually.

The flowers pick well, so, on

that basis, plant plenty, then you

always have something for the

vase and some hot colour for the

garden.

9. COREOPSIS

I love this coreopsis but I am

unsure of its name. I bought it

as potted colour last year and

it’s been a real campaigner with

a lovely compact growth habit.

Sunny yellow flowers have been

sitting up above the green foliage

all summer. I have it both in pots

and on a mound and it delivers

a riot of colour, right through

until June, wherever it is.

CAMPAIGNER: Coreopsis is a great pot plant.

ESTABLISHED: Choose a sunny spot for penstemon Cha Cha

Cherry to have it flowering for months.

SAFER ACCESS TO INTELLIGRO

Heading north on Main South Road you will use the

Weedons Ross Road off ramp. Manion Road is just before

the railway lines on the left-hand side.

If you are heading south along Main South Road, then turn right into Curraghs

Road, and Manion Road is on your left just before the railway line. You cannot

miss our big green sign. Our team look forward to seeing you in store!

Check your veggie beds regularly to ensure

that you are harvesting the produce as

soon as it is ready. If your plants have

grown really fast and haven’t produced

much in the way of veggies, but instead

have a lot of flowers and seeds on them, it

is time to pull them out. They have bolted

to seed and won’t be any use.

Keep up the water! Make sure you give

them a good soak every few days rather

than a small watering daily.

If your plants have been in for a while

now, it might pay to add some fertiliser or

organic matter to the soil to help keep the

nutrient supply available for them to keep

growing and providing you with veggies.

MULCH

A 10cm layer of bark mulch will help

to keep your garden looking great, and

provide some protection for your plants.

The bark will help to keep moisture in the

soil, suppress the weeds, and keep the soil

at a more even temperature. If you don’t

like the look of bark, you can use stones or

chip as well.

Organic compost is an excellent soil

conditioner. If your garden beds are looking

a little dry and worse for wear, add some of

our top selling organic compost. This is also

safe for use around acid-loving plants such

as Rhododendrons and Camellias.

GENERAL GARDEN TIPS

• Raise the height of your

mower to keep the lawns a bit

longer. Give them plenty of water

during the hot dry summer.

• Pull out the weeds as you see them. They compete with

your plants for space, water and nutrients.

• Keep safe in the garden. Wear protective gear such as

sunblock, hats, sunglasses and gloves. Wear masks and

gloves when using potting mix and compost, and wash

your hands after use and before eating. Head to our

website for a full list of safety measures to keep you

safe in the garden, particularly protecting yourself from

Legionnaires.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Good design ensures

a weatherproof home

The leaky homes crisis of the early 2000s was borne

from a relaxation in building design and emphasis on

self-regulation during the 1980s and 1990s. With a

more open interpretation of building standards some

poor designs crept in.

Official response to the leaky home crisis has been

to tighten up building by-laws with more thorough

building inspections introduced. The consent process

was upgraded again after the earthquakes.

Houses are now built to a higher quality and are

generally more structurally sound than ever before.

Every new home is thoroughly inspected at

significant stages during the build. These are listed on

the consent document and include checking before

a concrete slab is poured to ensure foundations

(including placement of reinforcing steel) are

prepared as per their design; that frame and roof

fixings, and all flashings around windows are in place;

and ensuring insulation is installed.

All tradespeople working on a residential home

must now be under the responsibility of a licensed

building practitioner and each trade must sign off the

work they do, via the official PS3 documents that the

approving Council requires for building consent.

While Canterbury’s drier climate translates to less

likelihood of a home developing leaks some buildings

have experienced damage from the elements over

time. It therefore makes sense to choose a house

design which will cope with extreme weather

conditions, while also looking good in years to come.

In relation to the roof of a home, more frequently

applied are hip, gable and skillion roofing styles. Hip

and gable roofs with a reasonable overhang of the

soffit, help protect the walls and prevent water from

penetrating between the cladding and house frames.

With skillion roofing, a pitch of upwards of 10 degrees

is a better option as lower pitches have the potential to

be problematic so require thought and detail in their

design.

Flat or low pitch roofs do need to be installed

correctly so it is best to engage a professional who

has the expertise and experience for the job. Other

issues with the roof can be internal gutters which can

accumulate rain water if spouting is blocked causing

it to bank up, pool and potentially penetrate the roof

cavity thereby damaging the ceiling, walls and other

aspects of the structure.

Fixing snow straps or gutter guard to the roof

spouting will help prevent buckling should there

be a heavy snow storm, a feature worth installing if

building in Selwyn.

The use of quality cladding and flashings (a

waterproof strip around windows and doors) is not

only peace of mind but also ensures your home looks

good going forward. All claddings are now required

to be on a cavity system. This is an air gap between the

timber framing and cladding, usually 20mm or 40mm

for brick cladding.

When choosing your new home’s design, discuss

how it might be made more weather resistant.

Hip & gable roofs with a good soffit

help protect the walls of a house.

Fix snow

straps to roof

spouting.

Involve a professional if choosing a flat or low pitch roof.

Skillion roofing with a pitch of 10° is better.
