‘Confusion’ over open road signs

Police boss

wants them

replaced

• By Anan Zaki

TOURISTS ARE driving too

slow because they don’t know

what an open road sign means.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills

is calling on the signs to be

removed and replaced with signs

stating the speed limit.

Open roads are marked with

a black stripe in a white circle

(right) and have a speed limit of

100km/h.

“I don’t like

open road signs.

So many people

nowadays don’t

know what they

are, particularly

foreign drivers.”

“I stopped

a couple of

Pete Stills

Chinese girls

on Main South

Rd last year and they were doing

70km/h because that was the

last actual sign they had seen,

although they had gone past the

open road sign but they didn’t

know what it was,” he said.

“We should just have a speed

limit on the sign so that there’s

no confusion on what the speed

limit is.”

However, Senior Sergeant Stills’

pleas have fallen on deaf ears. The

New Zealand Transport Agency

had no plans to change the way

the signs look.

Said an NZTA spokeswoman:

“The de-restricted sign has been

an option for road controlling

authorities to sign the default

open road speed limit in New

Zealand for many years. It

was retained when we went to

100km/h as the upper speed limit

on the open road,” an NZTA

spokeswoman said.

The district council said the

signs are not its responsibility.

“Any wider review of signs

targeting tourist drivers would be

an NZTA responsibility,” district

council assets manager Murray

Washington said. •Turn to p4

from the editor’s desk

PETE STILLS has a very good point on

page 1 today.

He is questioning how well the open road

signs are understood and points out how

often police stop motorists for driving too

slow.

It stands to reason overseas tourists don’t know what the

signage means – 100km/h.

We can all get frustrated with slow drivers, particularly tourists

driving at a snail’s pace on the open road.

But if they’re going as fast as the latest speed sign they have seen

– 50 or 70km/h – then you can understand why.

But change won’t come in a hurry it seems. So we will all have

to continue to be patient behind those slow drivers.

And don’t forget to be very careful.

Catastrophic fire

risk in spite of weekend rain

• By Anan Zaki

HEAVY RAIN over the

weekend won’t have an impact

on the potential for a fire

catastrophe.

Fire and Emergency New

Zealand Canterbury

principal

rural fire

officer Bruce

Janes said

there needed

to be a number

of weeks of

rain for the

Bruce Janes

risk of fire to

dissipate.

“It’s all very well having rain.

But with so much dead grass and

fuel available . . . it only takes

two or three days of fine weather

to bring fuel back-up and available,”

Mr Janes said.

MetService is forecasting

showers for tomorrow, but conditions

are set to return to warm

and dry conditions from Friday,

right through to next Wednesday,

with temperatures ranging

from 21 to 27 deg C.

FENZ declared a prohibited

fire season across the district on

DANGER: FENZ Canterbury warns that there will be no

stopping grass fires in current conditions. ​

Wednesday.

“A rapid grass fire in current

conditions is catastrophic,” he

said.

“I would say fires would spread

catastrophically rapidly. Because

anything wind-driven could be

catastrophic. It could leap across

grass fields, over roads, nothing

slows it down.”

The main factor in decisionmaking

was from weather

indexes which FENZ monitors

daily.

2019

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 2 MARCH 2019

“All of our indexes are at extreme

or high,” he said.

“The weather has been hot and

dry. The community after the

Nelson and Port Hills fires is very

alert. We want to keep them safe.”

The district was previously

in a restricted fire season, with

farmers requiring stubble burn

permits for the first time.

“They [stubble burn permits]

are now suspended. They haven’t

lost their permit and won’t have

to reapply,” Mr Janes said.

“They are just on hold until

the conditions change,” he said.

When the prohibited fire season

is lifted, it is likely to return

to an open season instead of a

restricted season.

“Autumn is happening as you

all know with the dew in the

morning. There’s no point in

people going in to the permit

process when you’re rapidly going

into winter,” Mr Janes said.

He advised people not to use

machinery such as lawn mowers

during the heat of the day.

GRASS FIRE

Dunsandel firefighters were called

to a grass fire which threatened

to engulf a chicken shed on Two

Chain Rd. The fire started at about

3pm on Thursday. Dunsandel

chief fire officer Ian Chatterton

said the fire was extinguished in

about two hours, before it could

reach the chicken shed. Six tankers

and four appliances were called

in as a precaution,. The cause of

the fire is under investigation,

Mr Chatterton said. Meanwhile,

firefighters were called to a hedge

fire on Telegraph Rd at 7pm

on Wednesday. Mr Chatterton

said the fire was contained in

about two hours. Six tankers and

two fire appliances were called

from Dunsandel, Kirwee and

Southbridge fire stations. The

cause has yet to be determined, Mr

Chatterton said.

Thieves put end to vege stall

• By Anan Zaki

JAN HALES-WELLS has been

selling veges outside her rural

cottage for six years.

The 70-year-old retired farmer,

who lives in rural Rolleston,

uses the money from selling

vegetables to pay her rent and

power bills during winter.

But to her shock, the chilly

bin full of vegetables outside her

Newtons Rd cottage, along with

the carrots and courgettes inside

it, were stolen last Wednesday.

All that was left behind was

a $2 coin, she said. “I just had

major shoulder surgery and I

had a lie down in my bed [at

2.30pm] and they came along

and pinched them,” Ms Hales-

Wells said.

The chilly bin was taken

between 2.30pm and 4pm, she

said.

Ms Hales-Wells has seen the

odd vegetable go missing over

the past few years – but nothing

like last week.

“I’m a pensioner and it just

helps me pay my rent and my

power bills.”

The vegetables were in a

30-year-old chilly bin with holes

in the bottom and a damaged

lid, she said.

The incident was

disheartening and sad, Ms

Hales-Wells said. “I’m 70 and I

was brought up to be honest and

I’ve never ever stolen anything

in my life. Today, the way society

is going, I would hate to see what

the next generation will look

like.”

Knowing the thief is out there

was “crazy,” she said

“There is someone out there

wandering around – casing the

joint as I like to say – to see what

they can get into. They just don’t

care,” Ms Hales-Wells said.

She has now put up a sign

saying “due to somebody

stealing my icebox, there will be

no more veges.”

“[The money] is a big help,

I put most of it on my power

account in the winter. The

cottage only has under-floor

insulation and a heat pump.”

Ms Hales-Wells hopes to have

Gangs targeting men online

• By Sophie Cornish

GANGS ARE using women

as young as 16 to target

unsuspecting men who are then

being beaten, kidnapped and

robbed.

The tactic is called “honeytrapping.”

Police say women are reaching

out to men online who arrange

to meet them and then gang

members and associates get

involved.

Police are investigating

whether there is an online link

to a brutal attack on a 59-yearold

in Rolleston just over three

weeks ago.

He was punched, kicked and

stomped at his home by gang

members and associates.

His cellphone, wallet, four

firearms, a Ford Falcon, a Harley

Davidson motorcycle and a

laptop were stolen.

Police arrested Black

Power gang member William

Hewinson in relation to the

incident. He has since pleaded

guilty in the district court to

charges of aggravated robbery,

kidnapping, burglary and

unlawful possession of firearms.

Two men and a 21-year-old

woman have been charged with

the same offences.

TRAP: Police say women are reaching out to men online and

arranging to meet them, and then gang members and their

associates get involved.

In late December, a 45-yearold

was beaten and robbed of his

car, cellphone and wallet after he

picked up two 17-year-olds from

a Woolston address. He had met

one of them online.

After driving for a short time,

the teenagers asked him to

pull over so they could have a

cigarette.

Detective Sergeant Daniel

Isherwood said two men

associated with the Tribesmen

gang pulled up in a vehicle.

The 45-year-old was then

allegedly kicked in the head

through the window, while the

other man climbed into the

passenger seat and punched him

in the head.

He was then forced into the

backseat of his car and told to sit

on his hands while being driven

around the city. He was taken

back to his own house, where the

alleged offenders took a Holden

Commodore.

He was also told he owed

them $5000. He did not pay the

money and went to the police.

Two brothers have been

charged with aggravated robbery

and kidnapping.

Detective Sergeant Isherwood

emphasised the gang tactics

were not widespread and victims

were only a “small part” of the

community.

“They look for any

opportunity really, any weakness

. . . these victims are seen as an

easy target,” he said.

Detective Sergeant Isherwood

is also concerned that young

people associated with gangs

may not realise how serious

the penalties are for aggravated

robbery.

“If a senior gang member is

asking you to partake in an

activity which involved threats,

extortion and the harming of

people, the likely outcome for

you is time in prison,” he said.

“The convictions for

aggravated robbery and/or

kidnapping will likely result in

lengthy terms of imprisonment,

both of which carry maximum

terms of imprisonment of 14

years.

He is calling for victims of

this behaviour to come forward.

“Police are willing to support

any victims of this offending

and encourage anyone to come

forward and speak with us. We

have a good resolution rate for

those who speak with us.”

Tools stolen

in burglary of

school shed

TOOLS VALUED at $7000

were stolen from a shed at

West Rolleston School on

Thursday.

Principal Sylvia Fidow said

fuses in the security lights were

disabled by the burglar between

midnight and 8am.

“Everything” was stolen, she

said.

The stolen items included an

angle grinder, lawn mower, jigsaw

and a drill.

“We had been slowly building

up our resources so everything

was new,” Ms Fidow said.

The burglary has “shocked” the

school community.

“As a new school we could not

afford a caretaker for the first

year and since Andy Benn has

been with us he has done such a

a beautiful and inviting physical

“Everyone has been upset for

THERE WILL be a

changing of the guard at

the Selwyn Waihora Zone

Committee.

Committee chairman Allen

Lim called time on his

position as chair after four

years in the job.

Mr Lim is stepping down

due to taking up other

commitments at the end of

last year.

“I was asked to join the

Freshwater Leaders Group,

which is an advisory committee

under the Ministry for

the Environment,” he said.

“And there’s been a whole

lot of meetings around that

which has kept me busy.”

Mr Lim said he is a keen

promoter of the environment.

“I’m outdoor person,

always have been. Every

weekend I can I go for a hike

in the high country,” he said.

“Being able to put a water

of the Weedons

and Main South

Rd intersection

was closed for

six weeks.

Motorists

wanting going

to Levi Rd from

Main South Rd

will now have

to go through

Rolleston and

Masefield Drives.

NZTA said the closure

will allow contractors

to continue building

a grade-separated

interchange at Weedons

Rd. Following the work, a

new southbound on-ramp

will open to provide access

from Weedons Rd to Main

South Rd.

Construction of the

Southern Motorway

stage two is expected to

completed in December.

Meanwhile, a digger

drink from it, I see that as

a right.”

Mr Lim said it is

now a good time

to transition a new

person into the role.

A new chair will

be elected at next

month’s Selwyn

Waihora Zone

Committee meeting

next Tuesday.

There had been

both challenges and

positives during Mr Lim’s

time as chairman.

“When I got there the

limit setting process was

pretty much done and

dusted. But the challenge

was getting those limits

into words,” he said.

“When the Selwyn River

went dry a couple of years

ago, we had a lot of questions

to answer. We copped

a lot of flak for that even

though we couldn’t do

much,” Mr Lim said.

the new Southern

Motorway hit an

underground power

cable, but did not

impact the progress

of construction.

NZTA said the

incident last Tuesday

afternoon damaged

the protective

sheath of the 11 KV

cable, but avoided

the power lines, on

Main South Rd, between

Robinsons and Berketts

Rds.

The digger operator was

unhurt after coming into

contact with the cable

NZTA principal project

manager Geoff Griffiths

said.

Lines company

Connetics carried out

repairs on the day of

the cable strike. Two

properties lost power for

five hours while repairs

were carried out.

Zone committee chair to step down

Since then, the committee

had succeeded in a

project to recharge the river

by using the Central

Plains Water

scheme.

“Hopefully we

will never get the

river dry at Coes

Ford ever again.

There’s no guarantee

but that’s

the intention,”

Mr Lim said.

He said he has

“thoroughly enjoyed” his

time as chairman.

“It’s been a real pleasure

and privilege in that role.

I met some really great

people and lots of great

farmers and great members

of the community,” Mr

Lim said.

“I see my role as engaging

with all of those people

with different views and

trying to come up a solution

that suits everybody,”

he said.

High environmental rating for farmer

LOOKING AFTER the

environment is an essential

part of Lake Ellesmere

dairy farmer Tony

Dodunski’s philosophy.

A recent independent

check shows he’s well on

the way towards achieving

sustainable farming in a

challenging area.

Mr Dodunski has been

rated “A” for his farm

environment plan audit by

Environment Canterbury.

He’s also achieving his production

goals at his farm

near Lake Ellesmere.

Having worked his way

up the dairy farming ladder

via management, contract

milking and leasing out

cows, Mr Dodunski and his

wife Clare, a doctor, bought

their 190ha farm next to

Lake Ellesmere two years

ago.

To start with they

thought that under ECan’s

tightening environmental

regulations, it would be too

difficult to comply as well

as make a profit.

But they needed to be

within half an hour of

Christchurch Hospital so

Clare could commute to

work.

A land agent persuaded

them to view the property

CLEAN FARMING: Dairy farmer Tony Dodunski has

been recognised for environmental performance.

next to the lake. “He said,

‘Tony, come and have a

look at this farm and at

least think about it’.”

Farmers in the area

are in the environmental

spotlight. Under the Canterbury

Land & Water Regional

Plan, the property is

in the Selwyn Te Waihora

Cultural Landscape Values

Management Area’s Phosphorus

and Sediment Risk

Zone.

In this zone, dairy farms

must have a nitrogen

budget done, and those

leaching more than 15 kg

of nitrogen per hectare per

year are required to cut

their leaching by 30 per

cent by 2022.

The tight environmental

regulations didn’t faze Mr

Dodunski. He figured that’s

how farmers should be

operating anyway.

Mr Dodunski said the

property’s previous owner

was a very good farmer

who had fenced off drains,

planted flax and put in

effluent storage. He has

added to that, planting

4000 trees and shrubs as

well as deepening and

digging a further 8.5km of

drains.

In his first year on the

farm he built a 700-cow

concrete feed pad. The

farm’s heavy soils turn

to mud quickly in wet

weather, so Mr Dodunski

gets cows off pasture on to

the feed pad quickly.

A PARENT who uses a school

zone in line for lower speed

limits wants more done.

Prebbleton School parent

Melissa Olliver said proposed

speeds of 40km/h outside the

school in the recent speed

limit review consultation is not

enough.

The district council’s consultation

on lower speeds around

schools ended earlier this month

and had 46 submissions.

Miss Olliver said lower speeds

won’t reduce traffic on Springs

Rd outside the school.

She called for a footbridge to

be built to replace an existing

pedestrian traffic island on

Springs Rd, outside the school.

The speed limit outside

Prebbleton School is currently

50km/h on both Blakes and

Springs Rds.

There is a kea crossing on

Blakes Rd. Kea crossings only

operate when a school patrol

is present. But there is no kea

crossing on Springs Rd.

Miss Olliver, who regularly

uses the Springs Rd traffic

island crossing, said the it is

“dangerous” as vehicles had

no obligation to give way to

pedestrians.

“It’s just really busy especially

at peak times like getting kids

across to school,” Miss Olliver

said.

“Naturally, if you live in

Prebbleton Central, that’s your

main crossing point.”

Selwyn Times reported on the

dangers of the same crossing

last year. At the time, the district

council dismissed community

suggestions to install flashing

lights to improve the safety of

the Springs Rd crossing.

The district council did not

respond to questions about a

possibility of a footbridge

across Springs Rd.

Prebbleton School principal

Kim Alexander said there are no

plans for another school patrol

on Springs Rd.

She encouraged parents to

use another crossing on Springs

Rd, near William St, which had

orange signs. Ms Alexander also

encouraged parents to use the

school’s kea crossing on Blakes

Rd.

District council asset manager

Murray Washington said

Prebbleton School has been

1working with the community

on a school travel plan since last

July.

“The school travel plan process

is where the school community

is consulted on current and

desired modes of travel,” Mr

Washington said.

Ms Alexander said the plan

won’t be finalised until early

next year.

In response to the school

travel plan process, Miss Olliver

said she was unaware of the

plan, but said that the options in

the plans such as kea crossings

would not work.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Melissa Olliver first made her

call to improve safety near

the school online. Her post on

the Prebbleton Community

Facebook Page attracted

strong support, calling for

something to be done to

improve the crossing.

•A community group member

said: “Something definitely

needs to be considered by the

council, it’s a terrible crossing.”

•Another Facebook user said

any option was better than no

options.

“I’d take any option as we

definitely need an option. It’s

incredibly dangerous and

really just a matter of time

before something serious

happens.”

•Others suggested that it was

not only school times when

the crossing was dangerous.

“It’s not just bad for the school

kids, it’s bad for all, even on

weekends. I watched four cars

speed pass while I stood there

with two kids in tow,” another

Facebook user said.

•Miss Olliver’s post also

attracted a question about

there being no school patrols

on Springs Rd.

“Why don’t the school have

patrols on it? One on Blakes

Rd and one there?” a user

wrote.

Decrease in

organic waste

going to landfill

ORGANIC WASTE is on the

rise.

The district council said more

Selwyn residents than ever

before now have organic bins and

existing residents are using their

organic bins a lot more than this

time last year, resulting in a decrease

in waste going to landfill.

The district is seeing strong

growth in organic waste tonnes,

with nearly 1200 tonnes or 22 per

cent more organic waste received

than at this time last year while

total waste to landfill is tracking

towards a four per cent decrease

on a per capita basis.

Council solid waste manager

Andrew Boyd said he is pleased

with the reduction and wants to

continue to encourage less waste

going to landfill, by greater use of

recycling and organic bins.

“We’ve got a number of waste

minimisation projects in the

pipeline. We’ll be looking to

expand access to recycling

services for off-route properties,

expanding the range of materials

accepted at community recycling

days, and also a number of improvements

at the Pines Resource

Recovery Park,” he said.

Updates will be available on

Council Call and the district

council Facebook page.

A DARFIELD farmer has put

the district council “on notice”

for shoddy road repairs.

Bill Bradley said he is sick of

seeing uneven roads and potholes

on district council roads.

Mr Bradley, who has 25 years

experience in roadwork, said

more heaves and potholes are

appearing due to poor roadwork.

He voiced his concerns to the

district council at their February

13 meeting.

Mr Bradley said the main

reason for his council deputation

was to put the council “on

notice.”

“They’re going to have to be

answerable to any deaths or

injuries because my concerns

are now on public record,” Mr

Bradley said.

“You can’t grade roads properly

quickly, and the roads have

deteriorated because they’re not

being done properly.”

Mr Bradley highlighted a

motor-cycle crash on Old West

Coast Rd in January last year as

an example of poor roadwork

causing danger. He said the issue

of dangerous road surfaces

wasn’t raised publicly at the time

of the crash.

A police report said the rider

of one bike hit a pothole on Old

West Coast Rd and crashed, and

a second rider crashed trying to

avoid the first machine. The two

riders had serious and moderate

injuries.

No charges were laid after the

crash, police said.

The district council said it followed

up Mr Bradley’s concerns

about quality of road repairs last

week.

“No issues of concern in relation

to roading maintenance

have been identified,” council

assets manager Murray Washington

said.

However, Mr Washington

confirmed cost is a big factor

in evaluating tenders for road

maintenance.

“Price is a significant factor

in tenders, but a number of

other factors are also considered.

Under the council’s tender

process, price makes up 70 per

the other 30 per cent being nonprice

attributes such as relevant

experience and track record,

said.

He said the district council

has two supervisors checking

the roading network every day,

checking work that is done.

“There is daily contact

between council staff and

contractor staff with any issues

discussed and resolved as part

of that contact. The contract

has performance measures in

relation to response times, cyclic

work and meeting agreed time

frames for approved work,” Mr

Washington said.

Mr Bradley was angry with

the council’s response to his

deputation.

“It’s shoddy workmanship and

yet they’re turning around and

saying this [there are no issues].”

“It’s just bulls***t,” Mr Bradley

said.

He said there are heaves on

roads across the district at

present, even one outside his Old

West Coast Rd farm.

It was only a matter of time

before a car or a truck hit the

heave, causing a crash, Mr

Bradley said.

Locomotive dream now a reality

• By Louis Day

SEVEN YEARS ago West

Melton resident Andrew Wilson

had a dream of bringing a

locomotive to Little River, last

week that dream became a

reality.

On February 14, the Little

River Railway Station Trust

welcomed a 62-year-old

locomotive into the station.

Director of operations and

trustee Mr Wilson dreamt up

the idea of bringing a locomotive

to Little River in 2008 as part of

the trust’s 2021 vision plan.

It was also Mr Wilson who

came across the locomotive on

Trade Me and drove to Dunedin

to assess it.

“I have driven further for

trains, I have gone down to Bluff

over a weekend,” he said.

Mr Wilson said he has had a

passion for trains ever since his

grandmother took him for walks

through the train yard next to

their holiday home in Kaikoura.

“On my grandmother’s death

bed she said I must ask for forgiveness

for introducing you to

trains and I said why? You have

introduced me to a hobby that

will last me a lifetime and she

said not to you but to everyone

else for having to put up with

this hobby of yours.”

EXCITED: Little River Railway Station trustee Andrew Wilson with the locomotive.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Mr Wilson who still has

photos of himself as a child with

locomotives hoped children

today could create the same

memories with the station’s newest

addition.

“The idea is to create that

scene for people to make those

memories and that locomotive

is there to help people do that

so they can look back on those

memories for a lifetime.”

The $8500 locomotive is now

on the tracks connected to a

carriage ready for people to have

their photos taken next to it.

The locomotive was introduced

into service in June 1957

and decommissioned in April

1985.

It spent its entire working role

in the South Island.

Mr Wilson said once the trust

had restored the interior of the

locomotive they would consider

opening it up on special occasions

and maybe even let people

pull the whistle.

The trust does not have a

licence to run the locomotive

along the tracks, however, Mr

Wilson said they could possibly

jack it above the rails which

would allow the wheels to go

round without it actually going

anywhere.

$30k fine

for Hororata

dairy farm

A HORORATA dairy farm has

been convicted and fined $30,000

after illegally discharging effluent

onto land.

A representative for Aitkens

Road Dairies Ltd pleaded guilty

to the charge in December. The

charge related to discharging

a contaminant onto land in

circumstances which may result

in the contaminant entering

groundwater, which is prohibited

under the Resource Management

Act.

The court heard last week that

Aitkens Road Dairies Ltd had

consent to dispose of effluent to

land, but due to a faulty pipe,

which was known about by the

farm’s owner and manager, an

effluent pond on the property

overflowed 80m² down a hill.

While the pond was being

monitored daily by the farm

manager, the overflow still

occurred. A number of

improvements had been made at

the property since the incident.

In sentencing the company,

Judge Jane Borthwick said the

actions taken by Aitkens Road

Dairy Ltd before the incident were

not those of a prudent farmer

and were negligent rather than

careless.

Selwyn’S only dedicated SportS

Store haS arrived

An exciting new store has arrived on Selwyn’s sports scene.

Magnitude Sports has just opened

its doors to the public at the

Faringdon Shopping Centre.

When sports enthusiasts and

locals Andrew and

Priscilla Foster

saw a gap in the

local market

for quality,

branded

sports gear

and clothing,

they decided

to use their

combined

industry

and sales

experience to

offer the community

the only dedicated

sports store

in Selwyn.

“We felt there was a gap in the

market for quality sports gear

in Selwyn,” says Andrew, “As a

general sports store, we aim to

cater for 95% of the public. If we

don’t have what the customer

wants in-store, we will source and

get it in with a two-day turn-around.”

The couple’s business model is

“big on service”, and they

plan to “go the extra

mile” to make sure

their customers

are happy and

get the service

they need.

Andrew and

Priscilla are

also extremely

price

conscious and

have priced

their products

competitively,

making sure their prices

are in line with city store

prices.

“We thoroughly research our

products online and make sure

our prices and quality meet the

customers’ expectations.”

Magnitude Sports offer a range

of clothing and sports shoes that

cater to infants through to adults,

with more children’s clothing to

come.

Brands include Asics, New

Balance and Canterbury with

more brands to come throughout

the year. Just some of the sports

covered are netball, basketball,

cricket, rugby, rugby league,

football, hockey, swimming,

tennis, yoga, darts and golf.

There is also a range of quality

backpacks available, too.

“We have a range of fitness

supplies such as socks, gym

towels, sweatbands, support

braces, and mouthguards

available. We’ve ticked off most

sports played locally and chosen

brands that are well known and

trusted.”

When Andrew and Priscilla are

not in their store the busy pair

are supporting local sporting

clubs – Andrew coaches rugby

and plays cricket for Weedons,

while Priscilla supports their two

children with their sports as well

as a spot of running when time

permits.

in the penultimate round of

the CRV Ambreed Country

Premier One Day Competition.

But the two marquee matches

featured Darfield, which edged

out Sefton by two runs, and

Cheviot, which chased down

Weedons’ 213/9 with just nine

balls to spare.

At Darfield Domain, the

home side elected to bat first

but struggled to gain any

momentum against some tight

bowling.

Michael Pauling (24 runs off

49 balls) and Robbie Frew (26 off

60) tried to grind out a total, but

Darfield were bowled out for a

meagre-looking 122 runs in 34

overs.

Veteran Sefton Seals’ seamer

Jeff Jones grabbed his first fivewicket

bag in 20 years for fine

figures of 5-27 off 8.4 overs.

Tim Harrison again anchored

Sefton’s run chase and they

appeared to be cruising at 93/3

before Nigel Granger was out

and Harrison was bowled next

over to Liam Foulkes.

All of the Darfield bowlers

contributed to the Sefton

collapse. They fell two runs short

and now face a must-win game

next weekend if they are to make

the semi-finals.

Weedons batted first on their

home ground against visiting

Cheviot. Brad Nightingale

continued his fine form with

a commanding 79 off 102,

including 11 boundaries.

Other batters chipped in as

Weedons posted a solid 213/9 off

their 45 overs.

The Cheviot run chase was

done by committee, with six

batsmen each scoring between

18 and 37 runs. Club stalwart

Woody Anderson top-scored.

Weedons tried seven bowlers

couldn’t stop the Magpies taking

the much-needed points with

three-wickets to spare and

leapfrogging Sefton into third

place.

Competition leaders

Southbrook didn’t like the

look of the Leeston wicket on

Saturday.

Their concerns escalated when

opener Tony Hancox suffered an

early painful blow to the ribs.

Southbrook’s innings never

got going, with No 11 batsman

Anthony Tavendale – in the

tradition of his grandfather

Wayne and father John, both

‘Brook legends – took the long

score of 20 off 18.

Leeston-Southbridge knocked

DARFIELD CRICKETER Jesse

Frew was as shocked as anyone

when his name was called out

for the New Zealand under-19

squad’s tour of Bangladesh in

April.

“I wasn’t expecting it at

all after I didn’t make the

Canterbury under-19s,” he said.

Frew, the son of longtime

Canterbury Country

representative Rob Frew, is

known as a toporder

batsman

who can also

open the

bowling.

However, a

stress fracture

in his back

kept him

away from the

bowling crease

this summer,

which he felt

had limited

his chances to

push for higher

honours this

season.

“I made the

Canterbury

under-19s last season but was

dropped this year and was told

with my body being injured,

they were unsure if it could

handle a cricket tournament, ”

he said.

The 17-year-old St Andrew’s

College student, who lives and

plays his cricket in Darfield,

scored 93 not out in his first

game of the season for the

Darfield premier team a

fortnight ago.

Jesse said he remembers

watching his dad play in the

Hawke Cup when he was young

and he joined the Greendale

Club as a four-year-old before

moving to Darfield as he

progressed through the ranks.

“I had a bat and ball in my

hand as soon as I could walk I

think. I tried a bit of everything

when it came to cricket when I

was younger and that’s carried

on through.”

Jesse is one of three

Canterbury Country players

to make the squad, with

Rhys Mariu

(Rangiora) and

Angus Sidney

(Cheviot) also

in the side.

The team will

be coached by

Canterbury

Country legend

and former

Black Cap Peter

Fulton.

The tour

will start with

a 50-over

warm-up game,

followed by

Jesse Frew five 50-over

matches. The

schedule for the series has not

yet been announced.

Jesse said he has gained a lot

of confidence from making the

squad purely as a batsman. He

had to go through 16 weeks of

recovery before he could even

bowl again.

“There’s nothing fancy about

the recovery, it’s just rest and no

bowling.”

Jesse aims to be back

performing both disciplines in

time to push his claims for the

under-19 World Cup in South

Africa in January.

SUMMER

Council’s work in connecting people to their community continues with the Picnics in the Park

hitting venues around Selwyn!

Families have been connecting with their local park in Springston, Leeston, Tai Tapu, West Melton

and Burnham, while being entertained with Lieutenant Lou clown police, Rick the Policeman’s

speed camera sprint racing, Pedalmania bikes, garden games, bouncy castles and face painting.

Live music from local artists such as Holly Kimber, Alex Hardy and Moonflower has created a

relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. It has been great to see families being active or relaxing but

most of all enjoying the atmosphere at their local park.

We have three more Picnics in the Park coming up over summer – at Dunsandel Domain (28

February), Springfield Domain (7 March), and Prebbleton Community Park combined with Summer

Skate/Scooter Jam (13 March), all from 5.30–7.30pm.

Birchs Road footpath upgrade

Work is about to get under way on a footpath upgrade on Birchs Road, in Lincoln.

The $250,000 project involves installing new footpath, kerb and channel and stormwater improvements

on a 700-metre stretch along the western side of Birchs Road, between Grangewood Drive and

Carnaveron Drive.

Council Assets Manager Murray Washington describes the work as an urbanisation upgrade. “This area

has grown rapidly in recent years, with further subdivision currently under way,” he says. “The upgrade

reflects the need to bring amenities up to a standard that’s appropriate for a more urban environment,

which has developed through recent growth.

“As well as creating a more attractive streetscape, the new footpath will improve safety for pedestrians,

with many children and families using this road daily to travel to and from the township and local

schools. The project will also include tactile pavers at road crossings for the visually impaired.”

The existing bus stop on the western side between Grangewood Drive and Craig Thompson Drive will

be upgraded to a full bus bay, along with the installation of a bus shelter which is being relocated from

the now unused bus stop outside the Lincoln police station. The project does not include piping the

open drain that runs alongside the road.

Construction work will start during the coming week, and is expected to take approximately eight

weeks to complete. Schick Civil Construction are the contractors on the project.

During construction some impact on traffic may occur, including heavy vehicle movements, temporary

speed restrictions when required and parking restrictions on Birchs Road.

Helping parents with teen drivers

Parents play a large part in the safety of their family when their

teenagers learn to drive.

We have been rolling out a series of successful workshops at our

libraries educating families about the licence process and how to

improve the safety of their teenager. These workshops are run by

Council Road Safety Coordinator, Peter Daly.

“It can be a scary time for parents when their teenager is learning

to drive. We want to help make the licence process as easy as

possible and answer any questions parents may have,” he says.

We have two more classes coming up on Wednesday 27 February

at Darfield Library and Wednesday 6 March at Leeston Library.

Following on from these sessions we will be hosting ‘Teen

Coach’ workshops at our libraries for parents and caregivers.

These workshops will offer practical tips on how to safely coach

a learner driver.

For more information and to book go to selwynlibraries.co.nz/events.

Volunteering in Selwyn

Volunteering Canterbury is setting up a six-month initiative in

Selwyn to connect residents looking to volunteer with local notfor-profit

organisations, and to assist local organisations looking

for volunteers.

Throughout March, residents and organisations can drop-in to one

of the local sessions. These are for anyone interested in volunteer

engagement, recruitment, retention, recognition, or those who want

to find out more about volunteering.

· Rolleston Library: Tuesday 26 February, 9am–1pm

· Darfield Library: Tuesday 5 March, 9am–1pm

· Leeston Library: Tuesday 12 March, 9am–1pm

· Lincoln Library: Tuesday 19 March, 9am–1pm

Volunteering Canterbury enables the successful employment

of volunteers by not-for-profit organisations, and promotes the

benefits of volunteering to people and communities. The regional

website receives around 200 new registrations each month from

people putting up their hand to find out how they can get involved

in making connections in their community, giving back, and just

generally ‘making a difference’ through volunteering.

For more information contact outreach@volcan.org.nz.

‘Special’ goal enhances

bid for under-20

World Cup squad

• By Gordon Findlater

A BUSY SEVEN days was capped

off in style by Darfield teenager

Seth Clark when he scored the

winning goal at English Park

on Sunday to book Canterbury

United a play-off spot.

Clark, 18, was substituted

on with 30min remaining in

United’s match against Team

Wellington last weekend. With

the scores level at 1-1 the attacking

midfielder became the hero

in the 89th-minute when he

finished off the 2-1 victory.

“I think it was one of the most

significant goal I’ve ever scored,

it’s a good feeling that we’re in

the play-offs again,” said Clark.

The effort, which saw him

receive the ball on the edge of

the area and turn two defenders

before moving the ball onto

his favoured left foot and curling

it into the back of the net, came

much to the delight of coach

Willy Gerdsen.

“I have seen many goals in my

career, but that goal was something

special,” said Gerdsen.

The goal could work as a

springboard in his push for a

spot at this year’s under-20 FIFA

World Cup in Poland.

Clark, who has started the

majority of United’s games this

season, was introduced from

the bench because he was only

able to attend one team training

session during the week.

Following United’s 4-2 win at

Hamilton Wanderers the prior

Sunday, Clark and fellow United

player Jacob Richards travelled to

Auckland on Monday morning

for a four-day under-20 identification

camp in preparation for

the tournament in May.

Following the camp’s conclusion

on Thursday he flew back to

Christchurch to attend United’s

Friday evening straining session.

The teenager isn’t new to travelling

in the pursuit of a professional

football career. Clark lives

in Darfield and commutes into

Christchurch each day to train.

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

WINNER: Seth Clark is embraced by his teammates after

scoring an 89th minute goal in Canterbury United’s 2-1 win over

Team Wellington at English Park on Sunday.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

With two round-robin matches

remaining and a play-off spot

now confirmed, Clark will have

ample opportunity to push his

case for under-20 selection on

the country’s biggest stage domestically.

“I just need to keep playing

well and hopefully the selectors

and the coach will see that,” said

Clark.

SELWYN SPRINTER Maia

Broughton is on the fast track to

success.

The 17-year-old is the current

national secondary schools 100m

and 200m champion but she

believes her best distance is the

400m.

“It’s always a bit of a

surprise when I win the

100m because I don’t

have a great start out of

the blocks.

Maia, who moved

from Lincoln High

School to St Andrew’s

College last year, was

the first member of the

Selwyn Athletics Club

when it was formed in 2010.

She said she’s committed to

showing the area has plenty of

talented athletes.

“I just want to show the

younger ones that they can do it

and that they’re all doing really

well, ” she said.

A cold last week saw her

chances of success at last

weekend’s Canterbury

Championships curtailed but she

had some specific goals for this

season.

“This season, I’d like to run the

400m in 55sec, the 200m I’d like

to go low 24sec and the 100m I’d

like to go under 12sec,” she said.

SPORT

Sprinter has sights

set on success

• By Jacob Page

ROLLESTON’S Brookside

Park will host the three-round

Canterbury Duathlon Series

which starts in June.

THe event, which has been

held for the past 13 years, was

previously the Ashburton

Duathlon Series and was held at

the Ashburton Domain.

Organiser John Moore from

CJM’S Events said 60 per cent

of the competitors were from

Canterbury regions.

“We thought, why not try it in

Rolleston and see if we can build on

the 130 athletes we had last year.”

Maia’s mother, Kim, father,

Marcus and nana Karen were all

sprinters back in their youth so

the sport runs in their family.

“It was the athletics days

at Rolleston Primary where I

realised I could run faster than

most and I joined the Selwyn

club soon after that.

“Before that I was

really into netball and

thought I was going

to be a centre for the

Silver Ferns one day.

Maia now spends

11 months of the year

training towards her

sprinting goals with

coach and former

Commonwealth

Games sprinter Bev

Peterson.

Maia’s main aim is to win the

200m and 400m at Nga Puna

Wai next month before she

defends her national secondary

schools’ titles in Wellington in

November.

She would also like to

represent New Zealand at a

Commonwealth Games or Youth

Olympics in the future.

Once she finishes high school

at the end of the year, her options

are endless.

“I haven’t thought too far

ahead but I’ll definitely keep

running.”

College year starts off competitively

Dean

Mower

writes

about the

start to the

school year

AS WE officially end week four

of the year, the college is already

dwelling on its busy start to the

year.

The year began in week one

with a two-day year 13 training

course. On day one, the year 13s

were looking at the expectations

around being a year 13 and,

by default, a leader within the

school environment.

Principal Ronan Bass

highlighted the importance of

role modelling, attendance and

knowing what your focus for the

year is.

The students also did some

team building skills and games

within their whanau groups so

that they could, in turn, lead

some sessions within their

whanau classes.

On day two the focus was

working as a team. The group

went into Christchurch and took

part in a visual scavenger hunt

in and around the Botanical

Gardens. Many of the students

had not visited the gardens

before and were a little in awe of

the sheer size of the location.

After having a picnic lunch they

then went to Garden City Bowl

and had an inter-whanau challenge

to see which whanau would have

the highest average. (Rimu were

helped by an impressive score from

their whanau co-ordinator – Kim

Thomas).

Week two saw the official start

of the academic year and as has

become the tradition on the first

morning, a Mihi Whakatou to

welcome the new members into

the school community was held.

With its increasing role it has

now become impossible to hold

SCHOOLS

a whole school assembly in the

school gym and so the powhiri

was held outside on the school’s

tennis court.

With about 130 new students

and 10 new staff the manuhiri

(new people or visitors) were

an impressive group and were

not intimidated by the tangata

whenua (local people). They were

then welcomed by Waimaria

Brown (the Kaikaranga), the

manuhiri were greeted with a

formal welcome (kaikorero)

delivered by TJ Gibson and a

reply by Josh Thompson.

Both speakers were supported

by their respective groups, who

sang a waiata. The ceremony

finished with a brief hongi to

formally welcome the manuhiri

as part of the tangata whenua

On February 14, the college

held their annual swimming

sports at the Southbridge

Community Pool.

With over half the school

competing, the atmosphere

was positive and had a real

competitive edge.

Senior students in each of

the whanau worked well to

develop a real spirit and one of

the highlights of the day was

an impromptu chant-off, which

was probably heard right across

Southbridge township.

Other highlights included a

whanau challenge race where

senior students had to tow

juniors up and down the pool

using noodles, the regular cross

whanau relays and the ultimate

relay of staff v year 13.

This year the staff managed

to ‘field’ two teams and without

even the slightest hint of bending

the rules managed to finish in

first and second place.

A great day was had by all

and now we look forward to the

Selwyn athletics day coming up

in a couple of weeks.

Endemic moth with striking wing pattern

The moth has a wingspan

One feature that does help to

identify it is the raised ridges of

scales on the forewing. Like other

Subaru Forester a worthy car of the year

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

MY WIFE and I consider

Queenstown one of our favourite

holiday destinations. We have

driven there often, the roads

and scenery on that journey are

magnificent.

Every time I’ve driven past the

famous Bendigo station, south

of Omarama, I’ve looked in and

wondered what intrigue lies

behind the front gates.

Well, now I know. When

Subaru launched its latest

generation Forester to the media

it included a drive through some

of the rugged tracks that link old

gold mining settlements, farming

blocks and now vineyards. Not

only was the experience a way

to explore the history of that

area but it was a good test of the

Forester’s off-road ability.

The Forester is brand new for

2019, it’s a new shape, yet it still

utilises most of the mechanicals

that make the Impreza-based

sport utility vehicle a force to be

reckoned with in the mid-size

market.

It’s fair to say, too, the Forester

is state-of-the-art in terms of

four-wheel-drive engineering, all

the trickery you need to travel

off-road are included.

There are three models in the

line-up, and it must be said that

the Forester is still the bargainbased

model which has sold in

large numbers in New Zealand.

The range starts at $39,990,

there’s a $44,990 Sport Plus

model while a Limited variant

lists at $47,490. The test car was

the latter and it bristles with

fitment and specification.

All Foresters here now get

a 2.5-litre, quad-camshaft,

horizontally opposed, fourcylinder

petrol engine, and it

does a sterling job in terms of

power output and economy.

Rated with 136kW and 230Nm

(5800rpm and 4400rpm

respectively), and listed with an

7.4-litre per 100km (38mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage rating,

the Forester is not short on the

ingredients which make it feisty

and frugal.

On my home patch for a

week, the trip computer was

constantly showing around

9l/100km (31mpg), and it

registered a 4.5l/100km (62mpg)

instantaneous readout travelling

at 100km/h (engine speed

1500rpm).

Drive to all four wheels

is channelled through

a continuously variable

SUBARU FORESTER: Perfect for alpine roads.

transmission. The benefit of CVT

is its lightweight, and the ability

to harness power without loss

through a torque converter.

There’s little downside to

CVT, the only notable

comment is that the engine

appears to have more freedom,

and that is a good thing, there’s

a constant feeling of liveliness

within the driveline.

As a consequence, the Forester

has good acceleration, it will cut

out a standstill to 100km/h time

in under 10sec, and punches

through a highway overtake

in 6sec (80km/h to 120km/h).

Strength for the latter is provided

by the healthy torque figure and

the natural force developed by

horizontally opposed engines,

they work tirelessly through the

mid-range.

Given the time we had at

Bendigo Station, I didn’t feel the

need to spend any time off-road

locally; however, I can report

that with a generous 220mm of

ground clearance the Forester

is adept in the rough stuff, with

fully independent suspension and

permanently engaged drive to all

wheels, the driver can gain plenty

of confidence travelling crosscountry.

Even though the tyres

(Bridgestone Dueler 225/55

x18in) don’t have an aggressive

off-road tread pattern, grip is

still well enhanced, and if treated

sensibly the Forester will take you

places well off-the-beaten-track

thanks to an X-Mode driver assist

function, it is there to manage

engine output, and drive, in hilly

sections.

Although the ski season is still

some way off, the Forester is the

quintessential vehicle for winter

sport enthusiasts, its drive system

• Performance –

is tailor-made for the trek up the

alpine roads.

On-road handling is also

keen, constant four-wheel-drive

encourages grip, and with its low

centre of gravity, the Forester is

an SUV which handles like the

family sedan.

For its price the Premium-spec

Forester is well appointed with all

of the comfort and convenience

items you’d expect on a premium

model, although I couldn’t find

any seat heaters and that’s a

disappointment. However, it

does get Subaru’s Eyesight safety

technology which goes a long

way towards earning the Forester

a five-star Australasian New

Car Assessment Program safety

rating.

Over the years the Forester has

cemented itself well into Kiwi

culture, so much so it has become

one of our sport utility vehicle

favourites. And the new model

has already won the New Zealand

Motoring Writers’ Guild Car of

the Year award, an honour well

deserved.

A lifetime love of rail

Graham at the controls in the locomotive

cab doing what he loves to do.

While many of us love journeying by

train, for Rolleston local Graham Lawn, rail

has been a lifetime journey which started

when he was a young boy.

“Dad was a Signal Maintainer, stationed at

Ward from 1953 to 1968,” explains Graham

whose fascination for trains stems from the

time he rode on jiggers with his father.

Graham attended Marlborough Boys

school by bus before the family moved to

Blenheim. On leaving school, he took up a

diesel mechanic apprenticeship with Tractor

Services Marlborough then progressed

to rail, starting as a trainee locomotive

assistant (his apprenticeship giving him an

insight into how diesel engines operated).

for five years before being eligible to sit your

driver’s certificate. Employees were judged

on seniority whereas now it is on merit,”

explains Graham.

On 3rd February this year, Graham

celebrated 46 years in rail. In that time he

has fulfilled a number of roles, moving into

training in 1990. He has been National

Training Manager for Tranz Scenic (now

The Great Rail Journeys of New Zealand)

and currently teaches trainee drivers topics

such as air brake and mechanical, rules

and codes, and train handling using a

locomotive simulator, of which he is one of

the two main trainers in the country.

His passion for rail led him to begin

collecting memorabilia, photographing

trains, locomotives and his railway

experiences, then collecting old rule

and code books, other books on rail,

maintenance manuals and diagrams of

air brake systems, old torches and lamps,

old uniform items including caps, badges

worn by train drivers on their black

Kaiapoi hats (in the steam and early stages

of dieselisation), and some model engines

and locomotives. He hopes to build on his

collection and one day display the items.

He has also found some of the items helpful

when teaching.

Periodically, Graham conducts seminars

for groups or the public on track train

dynamics from a safety perspective, and

assisted a student produce a DVD on the

effects of level crossing accidents. He was

also involved in recovering the locomotive

that was trapped on damaged track after the

2016 Kaikoura earthquake; an operation

which involved moving the train one

kilometre south so the freight, wagons

simulator room

and the two 100 ton locomotives could be

trucked out.

“For me, it’s not just a job, rail is in

my blood. It’s a personal interest. The

memorabilia is something that will allow me

to look back as I get older and be reminded

of my experiences and what I did,” explains

Graham whose son Jason has followed his

father and grandfather by also joining New

Zealand Rail.

“I’m lucky to have a job I gain so much

enjoyment from. It’s been a great journey

and one of the best parts is seeing the people

I train achieve their goals.”

Luxe Doggy Day Spa

brings bling to Rolleston

Loretta, owner of Luxe

Doggy Day Spa with her

dogs Mac and Oscar

Luxe Doggy Day Spa is a boutique

business in Rolleston. Loretta believes

their point of difference is her genuine

love, patience and appreciation for dogs.

“When a dog gives me a hug, it makes my

day.”

She will take special care of your pet,

and care for them like she does her own

dogs, Mac - a Maltese, Oscar - a Shih Tzu

and Bella - a Spoodle.

Every week Loretta puts up a couple

of photos of her client’s dogs up on

her Facebook page. Photos of Loretta’s

gorgeous doggie clientele looking

blissfully content adorn her website

and Facebook page, alongside glowing

recommendations from their owners.

“Puppy First Groom” is very popular,

a gentle introduction to grooming with

lots of breaks and cuddles, making it as

pleasant an experience as possible.

There is also the Silver and Gold

Packages. All first puppy grooms receive

a welcome gift pack to take home and all

dog grooms receive a bow on their collar

as the final touch.

Many customers are new to the breed

of dog and unsure what is required to

keep them well maintained, so education

is important as they might not be aware

of something their dog needs. Luxe

Doggy Day Spa supports SPCA and the

local vets.

Loretta is part of the National Dog

Grooming Association of NZ; committed

to always keeping up-to-date with the

latest trends.

Luxe Doggy Day Spa is also part of the

Loretta has just started using Pampered

Pooch, a range of exclusive products

made in NZ; cruelty-free and completely

natural. Loretta uses their delicious

spritzers and hair serum on tails and ears

for all gold grooms.

Loretta says “A lot of dogs come who

were initially very anxious. It is the

loveliest feedback when a dog starts

wagging its tail in excitement when it

knows it is going to the dog spa.”

Luxe Doggy Day Spa is very gentle,

believes in “humanity before vanity”

and giving lots of cuddles. In the

appointments so they can focus on the

dog being groomed, keeping it as quiet

Gardening

It’s not too soon to be

thinking about autumn

TIRED AFTER a long summer’s

labour? Many gardeners don’t

realise that an autumn garden

can be stunningly beautiful.

It’s not too early to be thinking

of the autumn garden, while we

have been blessed with a hot, dry

summer, autumn is just around

the corner, trees will once again

come into prominence, showing

off rich golds, purples and reds.

Closer to the ground, skilful

gardeners keep the colour coming

with well-selected shrubs and

perennials.

While thinking about the

autumn clean-up, don’t be too

quick to cut down some of your

favourite plants.

Experiment by leaving certain

flowers up during the winter

months to appreciate their sculptural

effect.

For more colour from annuals,

plant cool-season types, such as

snapdragons and pansies, which

keep going even after frost.

Ornamental grasses take

their place as autumn nears.

The seed heads of maiden

grass (Miscanthus sinensis

`Gracillimus’) are understatedly

beautiful.

MAINTENANCE:

A spiker or

aerator allows

the air to enter

the soil under

your lawn. If you

don’t want to

buy a special

tool, a simple

fork does the

job.

Get your tools ready for those

autumn jobs. You’ll need a lawn

aerator, lawn spiker and lawn

sweeper, or leaf sweeper.

Lawn spiker and aerator tools

are designed to open up the lawn

to allow air to enter. This is an

important process for maintaining

your lawn and helps with

drainage and allows for backfilling

with sand and autumn

lawn feed.

Hedge trimming should not

be left too late or the frosts will

get into freshly cut stems and kill

them back.

RETAINING MOISTURE: Mulch shouldn’t be used to make

your garden look tidy.

Take it easy when

applying mulch

MULCH, IT seems, is the new

compost.

There’s nothing wrong with

mulch when it’s used judiciously,

but creating ‘‘mulch volcanoes’’

around your trees is a very bad

idea, especially when it’s done

mainly for aesthetics.

The root zone of an established

tree extends beyond its drip line,

so mounding the mulch against

the trunk does little for the roots,

except cause roots near the trunk

to grow into the mulch volcano.

The piled-up mulch can soften

the bark of some young trees and

invites insects and diseases.

The lower trunk, unlike the

roots, cannot easily survive

long-term with the constant

moisture the volcano traps—it’s

the equivalent of planting a tree

too deeply.

Bear in mind that the main

reasons for mulching are to

retain soil moisture, suppress

weeds and moderate soil

temperatures — not to cover the

garden so it looks tidier.

THE

2019

Saturday 2 March • Lincoln Domain

How to make the best of this fantastic day out

Can’t wait to see you at this year’s Selwyn Sounds!

LINCOLN

HIGH SCHOOL

fun in the sun, awesome food and drink, and a stellar

cast of Kiwi music legends. As the sun goes down,

an unforgettable day will culminate with an awesome

Getting in

We want to make sure everyone

has a great time on the day, and

that there’s nothing stopping you

getting into the venue. So there

are some important dos and don’ts

that need to be followed.

To make sure there are no

surprises when you arrive,

take a few minutes to read our

Conditions of Entry.

We recommend you aim to get to

the venue well before the show

starts to get yourself a good spot.

Bus transport

There will be five pick up locations

around Christchurch and the

surrounding suburbs for those who

have pre-purchased bus tickets.

Just remember you need to

check in half an hour before

the bus departs.

Sorry but, due to high demand,

almost all the prepaid bus tickets

have been sold. BUT there is

an excellent regular Metro bus

service to Lincoln on the day

which runs at regular intervals

from Parklands through the city

centre and on to Lincoln.

Getting to

Lincoln Domain

& where to park

Lincoln Domain is located at

15 Meijer Drive Halswell, Lincoln.

There will be parking at Lincoln

High School on Boundary

Road,which is just a short walk

from the venue via a walkway.

You can download a printable pdf

of a map showing the location of

the venue & park from our website:

www.selwynsounds.co.nz

Seating

Zones

We want everyone to have a great

experience and be able to see our

fantastic line up from their seats.

So we have created three distinct

zones at the venue – there will be

no seating of any kind allowed at

the front (but feel free to bring a

picnic blanket), the next section

will be low chairs only, and you

are welcome to bring full height

deckchairs for the deckchair zone.

Thank you for your cooperation

with this.

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 stand 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

Cave Rock

expect EQC

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 suffered 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.”

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

It was the firs time Mr Garth

“We produced some top quality

The preparation for this year’s

Mr Garth, who has b en a

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 to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

A hearing i scheduled to be

The bylaw comes as an increasing

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

Pupils learn about role of war horses

Mark A pleton and member

in a bid to educate pupils on the

their horses Tommy and Kruze

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

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

Mr Winder and his team, the

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

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.

A Stylish Starter!

Visually pleasing and offering a low-maintenance lifestyle, this three double bedroom home in Faringdon will be

a particularly appealing option for first-time buyers who are seeking a stylish abode that they can call home. A

contemporary colour scheme and crisp finishes are ever-present, and modern conveniences including a master

ensuite & walk in robe, and an attractive open plan kitchen with breakfast bar only enhance the home’s appeal.

A superbly-sized deck flows beyond the sliding door from the dining area and overlooks the exceptionally

low-maintenance grounds, which, depending on your preference, could easily be enhanced with some colourful

plantings or greenery. In addition to the ensuite, there’s a well-designed family bathroom that is shared between

the remaining two bedrooms. Rounding out this fully fenced property is the presence of a heat pump and an

internal access double garage that incorporates the laundry. Clear instructions have been issued, and the keys

to this home will be changing hands. Contact Mike now for more information.

Lifestyle, Business or Leisure!

Surrounded by established hedging and set within a 3.6ha lifestyle block that’s only 15 minutes from the airport,

this four-bedroom home offers a wonderful example of classic yet convenient country living. The 240m2 floor

plan includes an open plan layout, large farm style kitchen with walk in pantry as well as an adjoining formal

lounge that offers a spacious alternative setting. Sprawling lawns with pop up irrigation system surrounded

by mature plantings and specimen trees and shelter hedging has created a beautifully private environment

around the home. This property has a three bay barn, is fenced into nine paddocks including a hotwire and stock

water, a central laneway and small stock yards and has irrigation consent in place to 2031 supporting a raft of

possible uses. Perfect base for a plumber, drain-layer, builder or anyone wanting a high level of visibility with

its far boundary backing onto the west coast road. Also suited to rearing calves or fattening beef etc. Make

no mistake, the commitment to sell is genuine and at a high. With the RV at $1,010,000 and negotiable over

Property Market Update

with Ray White

Property market more buoyant

After a slowing in real estate sales in the

latter part of 2018, the market lifted a little

in the first part of 2019, providing more

optimism for those with properties for

sale.

“At the end of October last year,

the Selwyn property market slowed

significantly for properties over $550,000.

This was due to the Overseas Investment

Act being introduced which led to some

uncertainty in the market at the time.

Post-Christmas, things have changed with

sales volumes more consistent across all

price levels,” explains Brendan ‘Big Red’

Shefford, Principal at Ray White Town &

Lifestyle Real Estate.

Brendan says first home buyers

continued buying so properties up to

$550,000 were assured a market while

other buyers lagged behind. The market

has now picked up across all price points

including the upper levels.

Currently, Rolleston and Lincoln are

experiencing considerable activity as is

any property up to $450,000 Selwyn wide,

though further out the houses in that price

range are generally older or smaller.

Low interest rates have also assisted the

property market by stimulating activity as

well as stabilising the market.

Proposed changes to the Residential

Tenancy Act have influenced some

movement, with more properties which

Brendan ‘Big

Red’ Shefford,

Principal at Ray

White Town &

Lifestyle Real

Estate.

were previously rented being sold to

first home buyers. While a plus for those

starting on the property ladder, the

downside is a potential decrease in rental

housing stock leading to rent increases in

the future.

“It’s a great time to buy if an

investor,” advises Brendan. “After the

Christchurch earthquakes, rents rose

dramatically. They have declined in the

last few years and only began stabilising

a few months ago. With low interest

rates and an emerging shortage of

rentals, rent prices are likely to rise

offering a better return on investment

than has been achieved in the past two

or three years.”

December, January and February

were strong months for the Ray White

Selwyn team with an increased number

of properties sold. Opening a branch in

West Melton has also been a good move

for Ray White.

“It’s a great location and the shopping

complex is becoming quite busy. There’s

a good community spirit and people

just drop in,” adds Big Red.

With bases in Rolleston, Lincoln and

West Melton, the Ray White Selwyn

team of 26 salespeople and three

property managers, share a wealth

of experience and knowledge of the

property market in Selwyn.
