speed limits

school

buses

• By Anan Zaki

A HIGH SCHOOL principal

is calling on police to target

motorists speeding past stationary

school buses.

Darfield High School principal

James Morris said cars going

above the 20km/h speed limit past

school buses puts students’ lives in

danger.

“Obviously with the high number

of buses we’ve got, you won’t

get complete coverage, but having

someone there [from the police],

for a bit of a reminder would be

a useful strategy every now and

then,” Mr Morris said.

Police said rather than handing

out infringements, it takes an

“educational approach” to remind

motorists to slow down past

school buses.

The educational approach will

continue for the foreseeable future,

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said.

The road code states that when

driving past a stationary school

bus, vehicles going past the bus in

either direction must go no faster

than 20km/h.

SELWYN SOUNDS has come and gone for

another year and by all accounts the 2019

instalment was a good one.

The weather was perfect, the bands gave

a great show and there were plenty of the

other necessities for a long day at Lincoln Domain – drink

stations, bars and Portaloos. Getting in and out of the concert

was a breeze too this year.

Selwyn Sounds is well and truly locked into the calendar. No

doubt promoter David Parlane will announce the next line-up in

the not too distant future.

Too much signage at intersection – police

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Anan Zaki

MOTORISTS ARE running stop

signs due to “bizarre” signage.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said

many intersections across the district

have varying speed signs near

stop signs, causing confusion.

The concerns come after Senior

Sergeant Stills’ call to remove the

open road signs

in last week’s

Selwyn Times.

He said one

example of confusing

signage is

at Boundary Rd

– near Lincoln.

Murray

Washington

At the intersection

with

Shands Rd,

motorists are

being met by an open road sign,

a stop sign and an 80km/h sign

– causing confusion according to

police.

Boundary Rd has a speed limit

of 80km/h and Shands Rd has

a 100km/h limit. The intersection

is marked by a stop sign on

Boundary Rd.

But before the stop sign, there

is an open road sign on Boundary

Rd, even though it has a

speed limit of 80km/h.

The district council said the

open road sign is required by law

as drivers continuing straight on

Boundary Rd are technically on a

100km/h area on Shands Rd for a

few metres.

Once drivers cross the few

metres of Shands Rd, there is an

80km/h sign, indicating they are

now back on Boundary Rd.

Senior Sergeant Stills said

the open road sign needs to

be removed as it confuses the

drivers who continue on straight

Boundary Rd.

“In my personal opinion, it’s

confusing,” Senior Sergeant Stills

said.

“I think anecdotally we’ve

found at crashes that signs are

missed because there’s too much

signage,” he said.

CONFUSION:

Putting open

road signs on

an 80km/h

road

confuses

drivers,

police say.

The open road sign on

Boundary Rd also impairs the

visibility of a stop sign before

Shands Rd, Senior Sergeant Stills

said.

The district council has no

plans to change them even

though Senior Sergeant Stills

wants them removed.

District council assets manager

Murray Washington said

the signs need to be in place

in accordance with the Land

Transport Rule, Setting of Speed

Limits 2017.

“Drivers need to be aware of

the change in speed limit. For example

if turning onto Shands Rd

from Boundary Rd they need

to know that the speed limit

on Shands Rd is 100km/h,” Mr

Washington said.

“The stop control is clearly

signed with ‘stop ahead’ warning

signs and two stop signs at the

intersection. The change in

speed limit does not change the

need to obey the stop control,”

he said.

Selwyn Sounds

Rock music

festival packs

them in again

• By Anan Zaki

LINCOLN WAS rocking

on Saturday as 8800 people

descended there for

the annual Selwyn Sounds

concert.

Festival organiser David Parlane

said the event was “fantastic” with

no issues or queuing or issues

with crowd behaviour.

“It [attendance] was slightly

down from last year [10,000],

but not a great deal down,” Mr

Parlane said.

Long queues at the bar, which

plagued last year’s event were

non-existent this year, he said.

The highlight of the event

was Kiwi rock icon Jon Stevens

performing, Mr Parlane said.

“He put out a hit record 39

years ago called Montego Bay,

he hasn’t sung it or played in 39

years,” he said.

“And he played it here at Selwyn

Sounds for the first time in 39

years and everybody just went

off. It was such a bloody fantastic

moment.”

Lincoln businesses and

organisations were able to cash in

on the event.

“I know that Lincoln High

School had something like 60

campervans there, and they would

have around 1000 cars parked,”

Mr Parlane said.

“When you look at the sum,

that’s about $7000 for the high

school.”

The event was a team effort, he

said.

“We’re looking at a 140 volunteers

on the day, stage and crew of

about 30 people and another 60

artists and management and crew

coming in as well,” Mr Parlane

said.

Preparation is already under

way for next year’s event.

“We will look to be announcing

early July with a line-up. We’ve got

a few more signatures to put on

a few more pieces of paper,” Mr

Parlane said.

Celebrate

the district’s

parks from

Saturday

THE TIME to celebrate

regional parks is nearly here.

Parks Week, which is being

organised by Environment Canterbury,

will run from Saturday

until March 17.

In the district, parks week will

be marked with two events on

March 17. Both are open to the

public.

The first event will be a

“working bee in the horse trails”

at West Melton Forest from

9am-1pm with a barbecue. The

other event will be a barbecue at

Weedons Ross Rd trail car park

from 11am-2pm.

ECan looks after three parks

in the region – the Ashley Rakahuri,

Waimakariri and Lake

Tekapo regional parks – and

also patrols Northern Pegasus

Bay.

ECan team leader parks and

forests James Page said Parks

Week is a great time to check

out Canterbury’s outdoors.

The Rakahuri Rage, an

annual mountain bike race in

the Ashley Rakahuri Regional

Park, is scheduled to take place

on Sunday.

Speed limits around school buses ignored

•From page 1

Senior Sergeant Stills said the

20km/h limit is in place due to

the unpredictability of children.

He said the slower speed reduces

the risk of injury.

Said Senior Sergeant Stills:

“There’s a lack of general

understanding that the

requirement to reduce your

speed limit

to 20km/h

when passing

a stationary

school bus.”

Senior

Sergeant Stills

also said there

was a lack

James Morris

of respect

towards the

law and pleaded for drivers to

slow down.

Mr Morris said there had been

a number of close calls near

Darfield High School’s buses.

The latest near miss was in term

four last year in Darfield – which

a passerby reported, Mr Morris

said.

Darfield High and Primary

Schools are served by 15 buses.

Twelve of them serve the high

school, Mr Morris said.

Hororata School principal

Marty Gameson – who also

operates as a relief bus driver

– said speeding cars are

concerning.

“A majority of our pupils take

the bus. I’ve witnessed cars

scooting past at 100km/h when

the bus stopped,” he said.

“That’s what the law is about, it’s

about [protecting] unpredictable

kids,” Mr Gameson said.

One incident that exemplified

why the 20km/h rule exits,

happened early last year, he said.

“Children crossed the road

without looking – because they’re

children. And there were trucks

coming,” Mr Gameson said.

“But the trucks slowed down.

I can say that a combination of

safety vests the children were

wearing and the truck driver

slowing down actually saved

those kids’ lives,” he said.

Rolleston College and Lincoln

High School said they do

not have issues with drivers

speeding past school buses.

Children are unpredictable on

roads, Senior Sergeant Stills said.

“The risk is heightened

because they are children,” he

said.

The most recent serious

incident with a school bus in

the district was in 2014, Senior

Sergeant Stills said.

A 14-year-old Thai exchange

student at Lincoln High School

was left seriously injured when

he was hit by a car after exiting

a school bus on Main South Rd,

between Curraghs and Weedons

Ross Rds.

The boy was flung 15m on

impact.

Playground repairs set to

cost ratepayers $70,000

• By Anan Zaki

RATEPAYERS are footing

a $70,000 bill to repair

a playground built by a

subdivision developer.

Levi Park playground off

Strauss Drive, Rolleston,

was built by developers

Gillman Wheelan in 2014,

but it was constructed

on poor soil, causing the

playground to slump late

last year.

But, in spite of the

playground not being built

by the district council, it

is paying to repair it. The

district council did not

respond to questions from

Selwyn Times about why

ratepayers had to foot the

bill. Gillman Wheelan

said it is working with the

district council to resolve

the issue.

It was dubbed New

Zealand’s first “smart

playground” as it had

augmented reality

markers which would

give instructions for

games when scanned by a

smartphone.

Said district council

property and commercial

manager Douglas

Marshall: “Investigations

completed by the geotechnical

engineer

engaged by the council

have indicated that parts

of the playground site had

historically been filled

with poor compaction,

which was likely to have

occurred some years ago

when the land was used for

agricultural purposes.”

The land is currently

being remediated. A

geo-technical engineer

advised the council that

this issue is isolated to

the playground area and

does not affect nearby

residential properties.

The old playground

equipment is being

replaced with lighter

equipment to prevent

future slumping, Mr

Marshall said.

“The new playground

equipment will be more

suitable for the remediated

site. Our thanks to nearby

residents for their patience

and support as we work

to make Levi Park a

safe playground for the

community,” he said.

Drainage work started in

November and is expected

to be completed at the end

of the week.

A new climbing

structure being imported

from Germany is expected

to be installed at Levi Park

in late May.

The playground is likely

to re-open in June.

STOLEN UTE

A stolen ute belonging to

the Prebbleton Veterinary

was stolen on Friday. Police

found the vehicle abandoned

in Burnside on Saturday. A

police spokeswoman said it is

following strong lines of inquiry

to find those responsible.

MADDIE RECOVERING

West Melton teenager

Maddie Collins is recovering

back home after a health scare

last month. The 15-year-old

was dealing with kidney rejection

and norovirus – and was

flown to Auckland’s Starship

Hospital last month. She is now

back home in West Melton. Her

mother Sarah Manson-Collins

said Maddie’s kidney is still

kidney transplant more than a

year ago.

More time to explain quarry

Fulton Hogan

must respond

by Tuesday

• By Anan Zaki

FULTON HOGAN has been

given more time to respond

to requests for additional

information about its

controversial quarry plan near

Weedons.

Environment Canterbury

and the district council asked

Fulton Hogan in December

for additional details about its

plan to quarry

at a 170ha

site bordered

by Curraghs,

Dawsons, Jones

and Maddisons

Rds.

Fulton Hogan

Simon

Moore

told the two

councils in

January it would

respond to the requests by

Thursday last week.

But on Wednesday, ECan

said Fulton Hogan asked for

more time to provide the

most up-to-date information,

including a revised draft cleanfill

management plan and a visual

impact assessment.

ECan said Fulton Hogan’s

MORE TIME: Fulton Hogan has until Tuesday to respond to

requests for more information about its proposed quarry near

Weedons.

response is now expected by

Tuesday. Weedons Residents’

Association member Simon

Moore believed Fulton Hogan

has given itself an “optimistic”

time frame.

“It doesn’t matter, we’re ready,”

Mr Moore said.

Mr Moore was also

disappointed ECan and the

district council had not offered

generic submission writing help

sessions for Weedons residents.

The city council offered six

generic submission writing

sessions to Templeton residents.

A number of Weedons

residents attended the city

council event because the district

council and ECan did not offer

the sessions, Mr Moore said.

ECan consent and planning

manager Virginia Loughnan said

it and the district council will

not provide the sessions until the

resource consent application is

publicly notified.

“We are choosing to run these

during the notification period

as that is when the public can

make submissions and therefore

is more timely and can help

inform an actual submission as

the whole application will be

available then,” she said.

Said Mr Moore: “What’s the

point of that? Why?”

“Why do we have to wait? It’s

going to be a rush as it is. I just

don’t see any point,” he said.

Fulton Hogan submitted a

resource consent application

to quarry near Templeton and

Weedons in late November.

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 water

races, aggregate washdown

water, truck washing, stormwater

discharges, land contamination,

hazardous substance storage,

clean-fill management and

site rehabilitation. The district

council requested more

information on transportation

matters, noise, landscape,

assessment of effects, mitigation

measures and planning and other

general information.

in terms of team numbers

and the length of the race.”

Competitors from

all over the world will

race in teams of four

and have to execute a

range of disciplines, such

as mountain biking,

trekking, kayaking,

canoeing and pack-rafting.

The official welcome and

race briefing will be held at

Saturday.

Ms Berryman said

Canterbury was the

perfect location to host the

event.

“Canterbury was an

to. It has an amazing

landscape and has an

amazing adventure

background.”

The event is being

welcomed by the

Students involved are looking

forward to the evening.

Said year 13 student Kendra

Fleming: “I’m really excited

There’ll be good food produced

with the help of a chef and

entertaining pieces outside of

what you normally think of as

boring Shakespeare.”

Stolen firearms sold to gangs

• By Anan Zaki

UNSECURED firearms

are falling into the hands of

methamphetamine dealing

gangs.

Burglars are frequently targeting

rural homes right across the

district in the hope of finding

firearms, then selling them on

the black market, police said.

Constable

Blair Croucher

said the most

commonly stolen

firearms are

shotguns and

.22 rifles – which

could fetch up

Blair

Croucher

to $3000 on the

black market.

“Unfortunately,

they are also the firearms types

most favoured by criminals

because they are so easily

converted to a pistol length,” he

said.

“Rural locations are targeted

such as farms or lifestyle blocks

as they usually have firearms

either for farming purposes or

for recreational hunting.”

The most recent incident was

in Rolleston, but police refused

to provide the date of the

burglary, as they did not want

to “potentially disclose the

victim.”

Police said the burglaries have

been ongoing over the past six

months, but could not provide

figures.

“If the firearms are not taken

in the initial burglary, offenders

have been known to return to

the address at a later date to

target the gun safe in order to

steal the firearms,” Constable

Croucher said.

“There is a ready market for

stolen firearms in this country,

and police believe many of these

stolen weapons will end up in

the hands of organised crime

gangs dealing in methamphetamine.”

Constable Croucher said police

are becoming “frustrated”

at people not keeping their

firearms unsecured.

“In some recent cases

where firearms have been

stolen, gun safes have not

been locked or keys to gun

safes have been left near the safe

or on easily visible key hooks,”

he said.

“Security is a condition of the

PEAK MEAT

Have we reached it?

A gAME cHAngEr for food ProducTion,

THE EnvironMEnT And HEAlTH?

This is an issue of importance to the world.

Intensive production of meat and milk is a

major source of greenhouse gasses, water

pollution and soil degradation. Many people

are turning to a vegetarian or vegan diet. Food

production is vital to New Zealand’s economy

and to ensuring the world has enough to

eat. Non-meat production, while requiring

less land, is often more damaging to local

environments than meat production.

How will changes in demand, modern

technology and an awareness of ethical,

environmental and health issues affect our

agricultural production? Is artificial meat going

to take off? Should we planning for this? How

will it affect our Farmers?

Join well known broadcaster Kim Hill and

panellists for the Hot Topic 2019 of Peak

Meat to be held on Thursday 28 March at

Lincoln University where Kim will chair a

stimulating discussion with panellists: Ronan

Phelan, Vegan and Environmentalist; Nick

Pyke, Director Ag Innovate; Jocelyn Eason,

Plant and Food Research; Kevin Marshall,

Chairman, Riddet Institute Board.

This discussion is again certain to be

stimulating, and entertaining, with the

audience invited to put questions to the

panellists.

The 2019 Kim Hill Hot Topic will be the

ninth coordinated by Lincoln Envirotown.

Each year, well known broadcaster Kim Hill

chairs a panel discussion on a subject of

national and global environmental significance.

For those wishing to hear and be part of

this important discussion – it takes place in

the Stewart Building of Lincoln University

on 28th March. Doors open at 6.30pm with

refreshments and nibbles provided. Please

be seated by 7.20pm. A koha of at least $5 is

Pupil to wear moko at pre-school

• By Anan Zaki

WHEN ROLLESTON mother

Teresa Butler asked a pre-school

if her daughter could wear a

moko kauae, she expected some

resistance.

But to her surprise, threeyear-old

Taika (Tiger) Werahiko

Butler-Dennison will be allowed

to wear a moko kauae on her

chin next month.

Ms Butler is set to get a moko

kauae tattooed on her chin early

next month – and it will then be

made into a stamp for Taika to

wear.

Bright Beginnings Montessori

pre-school principal Zoe Irvine

said the decision to allow Taika

to wear the moko kauae was

“easy.”

“We didn’t even have to

think about it. We work under

Te Whariki, which is a bicultural

curriculum, as all early

childhood centres do,” Ms Irvine

said.

“And it’s part of the Treaty

of Waitangi, so naturally we

need to work towards

partnerships, protecting the

Maori culture.”

Before deciding to get a moko

kauae, Ms Butler looked at the

history behind the tradition.

“Young wahine Maori [women]

got them done at a really young

age because children were gifted

CULTURE: Teresa Butler and her daughter Taika Werahiko Butler-Dennison wearing a

temporary moko kauae last year.

away at a young age,” Ms Butler

said. Before colonisation, Maori

put moko on their children to

identify them from other tribes,

she said.

“So I thought ‘you know what?

Kids where face-paint at kindy

all the time. I thought, I’m her

mother, she can wear a moko

kauae whenever she wants,” Ms

Butler said.

Taika has worn a moko kauae

stamp in the past, but it was not

one that her family identified

with, Ms Butler said.

If Taika’s moko kauae stamp

gets smudged, no teacher is

allowed to touch it, she said.

“It’s not like normal face-paint,

because if you wipe off any part

of a moko, you’re wiping off our

ancestors. So you can’t touch it

without (Taika’s) permission,”

Ms Butler said.

Work starts

on Birchs Rd

upgrade

WORK TO upgrade Birchs Rd in

Lincoln is under way.

The $250,000 project will

include a new footpath, as well

as kerb, channel and stormwater

improvements to a 700m stretch

on the western side of the road,

between Grangewood and Carnaveron

Drives.

District council assets manager

Murray Washington described

the work as an urbanisation

upgrade.

“This area has grown rapidly

in recent years, with a further

subdivision currently under

way. 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,” Mr Washington said.

An existing bus stop between

Grangewood and Craig Thompson

Drives will be upgraded to

a full bus bay, with a bus shelter

which will be relocated from the

now unused bus stop outside the

Lincoln police station.

The work is expected to take

about eight weeks to complete,

and temporary speed and parking

restrictions on Birchs Rd will

be in place when required.

•Former Star Media journalist Matt Salmons has become a

stay-at-home dad. We follow his journey weekly.

Needing to remember

the important things

Readers react to last

week’s Selwyn Times front

page story about open

road signs

Keith Osborn – I

totally agree with the

article about speed

limit signs.

As a bus driver and

travelling numerous

times on the road

from Christchurch to

Akaroa. I have found

that when a tourist approaches

a speed sign before a corner

they most often slow down to

the speed indicated on the sign

but do not increase their speed

once they have exited the corner

and continue to drive at reduced

speed.

Therefore they may be correct

as there is no sign

to indicate they may

increase their speed

back to the open

road speed after

exiting the corner.

This can be very

frustrating if you are

following in a large

vehicle that does not

have the room to

pass the slow vehicles.

Clint Ussher – Yes, I

agree that open road signs

should be replaced with speed

limit signs.

I LOST THE race against time

this week.

This term, Vittoria’s swimming

lessons are on a Monday. We

headed there as per normal, she

had a great time as per normal.

And then we went to wash and

change as per normal.

Here my race began. I had

forgotten to restock the nappy

bag.

It was like a lead weight in my

gut realising that. Honestly, it

was like some kind of nightmare

– I’m sure other parents will

sympathise.

Or else they’re thinking I’m

some kind of idiot, lying to

themselves that they’ve never

done it.

I know you have.

So I had to take a big risk; put

on Vittoria’s clothes and race

home to get a new nappy. Racing

against the possibility that she

would wet said clothes, or worse,

without any idea of when that

may or may not happen.

Like I said, nightmare.

So I rushed us home, hoping

against hope.

I lost anyway. I got home and

she needed some fresh clothes. A

lesson to be learnt on my

part.

MEMORIES: Vittoria with her

great-grandmother Mary

Miller at Christmas.

Well, after a bit of lightheartedness,

I need to touch on

something that has hit us hard as

a whānau.

VITTORIA

& Matt

Recently, my Nan, Vittoria’s

great-grandmother, Mary Miller

passed away at 91.

Her funeral was held on her

92nd birthday.

She was an amazing woman,

fierce, determined, sharp as a tack

and as equally at home wearing

the most elegant clothes at high

society events as she was flinging

out her fishing line to haul in a

catch of blue cod wearing a man’s

flannel shirt.

Widowed young, my Nan

successfully raised six children

as a single mother in the 1950s.

Proper tough.

I am so glad that my daughter

and she could meet and that I

had her in my life for so long. I

dearly hope that I will be able to

teach Vittoria to be like her and to

love the heritage that my Nan has

given her.

Online community groups in spat

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A SPAT HAS broken out

between two Facebook

community pages.

Greig Russell has hit out at the

administrators of the Halswell

Community Group page for

being “ousted” from the group

of nearly 11,000 members for

speaking his

mind.

He was

removed from

the page when

he posted a

mobile phone

number

online.

Chrys Horn

Mr Russell

has since

set up a new

page called Halswell Community

Page Uncensored with a

catchphrase of #LETSMAKE-

HALSWELLGREATAGAIN

“They ousted me out of the

community. Short of pitchforks

and tiki torches that is what they

have done,” he said.

Mr Russell was returning

home from a fishing trip in Greta

Valley when he came across a

group of men stranded due to

having a flat tyre. He lent the

men his spare wheel to enable

them to get home and got one of

their mobile numbers. Mr Russell

said the men had promised

to return it the next day, but

nothing eventuated and they

would not return his phone calls

and blocked his number.

To put pressure on them, he

asked members of the Halswell

Community Group to phone the

number and ask for the wheel’s

return. It was returned after

about a week.

But Halswell Community Project

chairwoman and one of the

administrators Chrys Horn said

it was harassment and would not

be tolerated.

“The trouble is people put up

stuff and they make allegations.

ARGUMENT:

Halswell

resident

Greig

Russell

said he was

ousted from

the Halswell

Community

Group

Facebook

page.

We have had quite a few times

that has happened and the poor

person on the receiving end has

no idea what was going on,” Dr

Horn said.

But Mr Russell responded,

saying it “absolutely” was not

harassment. He said he did

something about his wheel being

stolen and he got a result.

“Someone was trying to rip

me off. You put yourself in my

situation. You have got a phone

number that is all you have got.

What are you meant to do if they

block you?”

He said there is no consistency

in the Halswell Community

Group’s rules.

But Dr Horn said it is the

Halswell Community Project’s

page and it has clear rules which

people need to follow.

“If people step outside those

and they don’t take no for an

answer, then we block them and

that is just the way the world

works.

Dr Horn said it is a large group

to monitor and because the

administrators have a lot going

on in their lives, they do not

always catch posts breaking the

rules right away.

The group has a wide range

of policies, including group

members being unable to

advertise businesses, abuse

or make racial comments,

complain about organisations

or make posts containing sexual

references or innuendo.

Dr Horn said the group

doesn’t bear many grudges and

she would like to reinstate Mr

Russell when things settle down

and if the administrators agree.

Locals looking after locals

When our vehicles need attention, it is great

if the servicing, repairs or warrant can be

sorted locally by capable automotive experts.

Conveniently located Rolleston Diesel

& Petrols has the manpower, skill and

equipment to look after any vehicle

maintenance requirements. If you have a

concern or need an opinion Simon, Hayden

or Allen will be happy to check it out for you

too.

There may be tell-tale signs such as the smell

of oil pointing to an oil leak or a less obvious

clue, which if not attended to, could result in

something more serious like engine damage

meaning an expensive vehicle repair. With

annual warrant of fitness checks, servicing

can be overlooked yet a year is a long time.

Vehicles do need regular maintenance

especially when totting up the kilometres,

something easy to do for those living in

Selwyn.

Even late model vehicles break down on

occasions. Having your vehicle regularly

serviced will assist its reliability and help

identify a potential issue, before it becomes

an inconvenience or renders the vehicle

unsafe, such as when tyre tread is low or

uneven.

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols

is a multi-skilled, repair

and service centre where

vehicle servicing, repairs

or warrant checks are

easily taken care of. Along

with experienced qualified

automotive technicians,

you will find a workshop

which has sophisticated

diagnostic equipment like

fuel injector cleaning gear,

Egr and Dps. This allows

the team to maintain and

repair most personal and

business vehicles while

Simon insists on only

using reliable quality components, oils and

original specifically manufactured equipment

parts.

“We never use cheap parts that won’t last.

Every vehicle deserves to be maintained and

fixed properly,” says Simon.

They repair more than just cars, utes, 4WDs,

vans and light commercial vehicles up to

Allen

12 tons. You can also take your

motorhome, bus, motorcycle, jet ski,

boat, horse float or even the rideon

lawnmower down to Rolleston

running like new in no time. They

also remind customers when their

vehicle needs a new WOF.

As members of the Motor Trade

Our People

Pete Stills

Top cop immersed in the community

CHALLENGES: Senior Sergeant Pete Stills joined the police in

1983 and is in charge of policing in the district.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills has been a police officer since 1983. During his

time in the force, he has served in many stations across Christchurch and in

Wellington. Anan Zaki talked to the man in charge of policing in the district

Your job in Selwyn, did that

throw up a new challenge?

Yes, Selwyn offered up a

new challenge, it’s more of a

community-focused way we

police. We still apply a small

town model to an area which

is growing. We have the scope

here to do a lot more complaints

than we did in Hornby, with

the resources and amount of

work. It’s an area where we

can immerse ourselves in the

community a lot more than we

can in metro areas.

How long have you served in

Selwyn?

I’ve managed Selwyn since the

beginning of 2013. But up until

October 2017, I managed the area

from the Hornby station because

I also had a role at Hornby and

Christchurch South police station

in Beckenham.

Have you moved around at

other stations?

Prior to Hornby I did eight

years at Papanui station, managing

the response staff at Papanui

and New Brighton. Prior to that

I was a shift senior sergeant at

Christchurch metro, prior to

that I was a sergeant at the beat

section at Cathedral Square. And

that was a really good job and I

really enjoyed the position [at Cathedral

Square]. And even prior

to that I did 15 years in various

roles at the old Sydenham station

in Stanley St. I was initially posted

to Wellington Central [after

graduating] and walked the beat

for two years then transferred to

Christchurch in 1985.

Was there much difference

from policing in Christchurch

and your first stint Wellington?

There was actually. Back

then Wellington had a very

limited and almost no suburban

drinking. Wellington suburbs

had prohibition and most of the

nightlife had centred around

the city. So it was an easier place

to police as you didn’t have to

stretch your resources too far

at night because everyone came

in to town. And of course the

physical layout of Wellington

was different to what I was

used to in Christchurch. You

had the hills and the wharf

which added an interesting

dimension. You had the red light

district in Wellington, which

got a lot of policing attention

particularly at night. And at the

time Christchurch didn’t have

a red light district. So I saw and

learned a lot of things I hadn’t

experienced before.

Over the years you’ve worked

on many cases, are there notable

cases you worked on which

readers might remember?

Probably the biggest one was

a homicide in the early 1990s

where a woman [Gay Oakes]

had poisoned and suffocated her

husband [Doug Gardner] and

buried him in the garden. I was

the officer in charge of that, it

was a missing person inquiry

initially and became a homicide

investigation after we found him.

I charged her with murder and

she was convicted. At the time

it was a very high profile case. It

was quite a difficult case to work

the victim’s family were disappointed

that we didn’t get a result

earlier than we did. But we have a

process to work to, we have to be

evidence-based in everything we

do. And everything we do have to

be founded on good information

and good evidence. We can’t just

act on impulse. But eventually we

got the right result.

SELWYN TIMES

Our People

‘Helping people still gives me a

Police often get criticsed, is it

unfair?

Yes, very much so [unfair].

Look, sometimes we miss the

opportunity to tell people why

we do what we do. There’s often a

lack of understanding about how

things came about or why they

came about which leads people

to draw their own conclusions

about how or why things

happened. Social media has

probably made it worse because

people fire off and come up with

conclusions that you wouldn’t

logically come up with if you sat

down and looked at everything.

But I’ve always said to people, if

you want to know why or how

something has happened, just ask

me, I’m happy to tell you.

You mentioned social media,

has that thrown a whole new

dynamic into policing?

Hugely, both positive and

negative. Younger staff nowadays

who are way more IT savvy than

some of us older staff, use social

media in inquiries and get very

good results very quickly. The

negative side is urban myths and

legends seem to start on social

media and grow out of control

and it’s often based on inaccurate

information.

When did you join the police?

I joined in October 1982 on the

84th recruit wing. We graduated

DIFFICULTIES: One of the most high profile cases Senior Sergeant Stills worked on was the

murder of Doug Gardner by his wife Gay Oakes (left). Another issue he has strongly campaigned

on is road safety.

in late March 1983.

And why did you join the

police?

It’s something I had always

wanted to do. I inquired about

joining when I was in high school

but I was told to get a bit of life

experience and come back. I

had a friend in the police who

made the job sound exciting and

I just sort of felt that it would

give me an opportunity to be

community-spirited and force

me to be a good role model and

lead a life with a good example to

others.

What did you do before the

police?

I was a grain and seed

representative with Dalgety New

Zealand at Darfield for six and a

half years. I did that straight out

of school, so from school I was a

stock and station cadet and did

the cadetship with Dalgety.

Did you grow up in

Christchurch?

I grew up in Somerfield and

Hoon Hay.

If you stacked up the rewarding

and challenging aspects of

policing what would they be?

The rewarding aspects are

helping people make positive

changes in their lives. Or to help

people move on successfully from

a negative experience. Helping

people still gives me a real good

buzz. If I leave work really happy

it’s after I feel that I’ve really

done something that has helped

somebody. The negative aspect is

death, particularly children. The

worst thing we do is when we go

and tell somebody that a member

or loved one has been killed or

seriously injured. Particularly

when young people are involved,

it makes it very, very difficult.

And it’s something that I’ve

never fully been able to deal with,

without getting involved in the

emotion of it all myself a bit. All

Blacks coach Steve Hansen made

a really good comment when he

was interviewed once, prior to

one of the World Cups. He was

asked what it was like telling

players they’ve missed out on the

final squad for the World Cup.

And he said to the interviewer he

used to be in the police and had

to tell people their children had

been killed, and telling a player

he’s missed a tournament is easy.

You often campaign on road

safety, why is road safety such

an important part of policing?

It’s our biggest risk in Selwyn.

Selwyn is over represented

nationally in terms of serious

injury crashes and fatalities. So

we put a huge resource into try

and turn that around. It’s a major

thing that kills people in this part

of the country. We try to change

behaviours because we’re trying

to reduce the crashes. We have a

goal of no serious injury or death

crashes. People say we’ll never get

there, but if we don’t try we won’t

achieve. So we’re out there trying

to change behaviour, and we’re

doing that through enforcement

and education and through

engineering changes to the roads.

real good buzz’

From when you walked into

the job for the first time, how

has policing changed today and

has it changed for the better?

I don’t know if I could always

say for the better. There’s

certainly change, change is

constant. Some things have

improved. Technology means

that everybody is watching

everything now, everyone films

things, records things.

Has there been a lot of culture

change?

Yes, there has been. I guess the

two big culture changes we saw in

the police is the disappearance of

the heavy drinking culture which

was certainly a thing in the early

1980s. I think the Springbok Tour

[1981] probably started some

changes in terms of a lot of cops

not being able to be deployed

into the frontline. The other

big culture change is the move

to have a fitter force than we

once had. High levels of fitness

standards were introduced in the

1980s with regular fitness and

health testing and a requirement

to maintain an acceptable level

of fitness. We’re happy with

that because it’s really the only

measure that the public have that

police are physically fit enough to

do the job that we’re required to

do. If I had it my way the fitness

testing would be more frequent.

Outside of police work, do you

have any hobbies?

I spend as much time with

my family as I can, and I like

to try and keep myself fit. So

I do that nowadays by riding

mountain bikes cross-country.

I’m the masters club captain at

Halswell United Football Club.

I played football until I had two

knee replacements recently.

Nowadays my involvement is

limited to managing the team,

administering and refereeing.

Is football your main sport?

I’m a rugby nut. Massive

Crusaders and All Blacks fan. My

background is in rugby union so

that’s the sport that takes most of

my interest in terms of following

it. I played football from the days

I couldn’t play rugby anymore

and been involved with Halswell

United since 1986.

Tell me a bit about your family?

FRONTLINE:

After

the 1981

Springbok

Tour, police

went

through

culture

changes.

I’ve been married [to Yvonne]

since 1983, I have three grown

up daughters and three

grandchildren. I met Yvonne

working together at Dalgety.

When we actually started

going out she moved to a rival

company Pyne Gould Guinness.

I think I met her at the company

Christmas do from memory.

There’s a big drive for new

police recruits right now, for

anyone thinking about joining

the police, what would you say

to them?

It’s an extremely rewarding,

the work is varied and you do

something different every day.

You’ll have times where you feel

really sad but there are lots of

times where you feel really glad.

It keeps you on your toes in terms

of ensuring your own behaviours

are without reproach.

JOB DONE: Lincoln University School of Landscape

Architecture students Nathan Campbell, Eva Shin, Amy

Bruce and Sophie Harrison with some of the tactical

improvements they made to one of the sites on the Lincoln

campus.

Uni campus transformed

MORE THAN 100 landscape

architecture students from

Lincoln University and the Ara

Institute of Canterbury teamed

up on Friday to transform a

number of sites around the

Lincoln campus.

Using the same type of approach

responsible for transforming

New York’s Times

Square into a more peoplefocused

area, the students aimed

to create maximum impact with

minimal means.

They gathered items such as

pea straw bales, pallets, road

cones, chalk, balloons and string,

creating improvements around

10 different sites on campus with

a technique known as tactical

urbanism.

This is used in cities around

the world to test temporary

designs in cities before making

them permanent. Activists and

neighbourhood groups have

used the approach to enhance

walking routes and slow down

traffic in cities.

Due to Lincoln’s location, the

project was dubbed “tactical

ruralism”.

Those who participated in

the project were first, second

and third-year students from

Lincoln’s School of Landscape

Architecture and Ara’s

architectural studies programme.

Households on Council water supplies will be receiving their latest water rates invoices over the

next four months, starting this month.

Every six months, households are billed for their volumetric charge, which is based on the amount

of water used. There’s also a fixed annual charge, which is billed separately on the rates invoice.

Water rates are charged to fund the ongoing costs of operating the water supply, and to provide

funds for maintaining and renewing the supply infrastructure so that it continues to operate at an

acceptable level of service, providing reliable, safe, clean water to Selwyn communities.

All councils charge for water supply. Some councils charge households a fixed water rate, some

charge a rate based on a property’s capital value, some charge a variable amount based on the

amount of water used (volumetric charging), and some charge a combination of these methods.

In Selwyn, for the majority of households, the current water rate comprises a fixed charge of $235

a year, plus an additional volumetric charge of 46 cents per cubic metre of water (1000 litres).

Water meters have been progressively installed across Council water supplies in Selwyn over

a number of years, and are installed as standard in all new subdivisions. Currently 98.3% of

households on Council water supplies are metered.

One of the benefits of water meters is that they directly link water use to cost , and help to

reduce water consumption, as households become more aware of their water consumption.

People who use more water pay more in charges, while properties with lower water use benefit

from lower charges.

A recent independent comparison of water charges across New Zealand shows Selwyn’s

volumetric charge is one of the lowest in the country, and when combined with the fixed charge, is

in the middle of the range of water charges nationwide.

For more information on water meters and charging, see selwyn.govt.nz/watermetering.

Volunteer benefits go both ways

We recognise that volunteering is important for our community, not

only because positive volunteering efforts play an important role in

building community spirit and resilience, but it also brings rewards to

individuals who volunteer. Rewards can include improving individual

wellbeing and social connections, increasing self-confidence,

broadening knowledge and experience and growing friendships.

Recently Council staff had the opportunity to do some volunteering

around the district.

Around 30 staff offered their time to give back to the community

as part of a wider volunteering campaign run by the economic

development team. A further 10 staff are planning for their

volunteer activities to take place over the coming month, due to

workload commitments.

The volunteers worked on a number of different projects

including native planting at Lincoln Wetland, restoration work at

Southbridge Pool and lending a hand at the local Salvation Army

second-hand store.

Tracy Beardsley, Manager at Salvation Army, Family Store said the

extra volunteer assistance was greatly appreciated.

“It really made a difference as this time of year is always very busy

for us,” she says.

Andy Spanton, Council Biodiversity Coordinator said the help from

the volunteers helped to maintain the Lincoln Wetland as a pleasant

spot for the community to visit and explore.

“It was great to have our corporate volunteers assist with managing

the native restoration sites at Lincoln Wetland. Those who attended

put in some hard work on a hot afternoon to release the native

plants and distribute mulch around the sites,” he said.

In addition to corporate volunteering, the Council is facilitating

increased awareness of volunteering benefits and opportunities

for the wider community through an initiative called ‘Volunteering

in Selwyn’. Volunteering Canterbury are running the six-month

initiative in Selwyn at local libraries to connect residents looking to

volunteer with local not-for-profit organisations. It will also assist

local organisations looking for volunteers.

while introducing you to modern sustainable products for use in the home.

The second workshop is a Food Lovers Masterclass, focusing on ways to reduce food waste when

cooking and preparing meals and interesting facts like what the difference is between ‘use by’ and ‘best

before’ dates.

The workshops are being held on Thursday 14 March at the Rolleston Community Centre. The Waste

Free Parenting Workshop runs from 12.30–2.30pm and the Food Lovers Masterclass from 7–9pm.

Tickets are $25 each or for a couple and each ticket comes with a free goodie bag worth $100.

Bookings are required, visit eventfinda.co.nz or wastefreeparenting.co.nz to book.

Park and ride update

Ducting cabling is being installed on the

Kidman Street, Rolleston park and ride site,

to allow for lighting of the parking area.

This work will continue and some of the

existing lighting will be relocated to suit the

new design works. The existing lighting will

be upgraded into LED lighting.

Instalment of stormwater services works will

continue next week along with general civil

works for the formation of the car park.

Opportunity for retired teachers

Selwyn is the only Council in New Zealand to have a Sister Cities relationship in Indonesia.

Toraja is a mainly Christian community in the highlands of Sulawesi. Coffee farmers in this region have

been supported by a group of Canterbury farmers for over 12 years.

The Selwyn Sister Cities Committee is planning to send a small group of teachers to Toraja for around

two to four weeks later this year. These teachers will assist in local schools to help staff and students

develop English language skills. Improved English, in time, should assist the business community as

they seek to export more high quality coffee and increase tourism to this distinctive cultural area.

The Sister Cities Committee is also aiming to help develop links between Selwyn and Toraja students.

Conference a chance to learn about

Lincoln High

School year

13 student

John Elliott

writes about

his visit to the

European Union

AT THE START of this year,

I was offered the opportunity

to take part in a trip to the

European Union with others

from around New Zealand and

Australia.

I got the chance to go to

Prague, Geneva and London

taking part in an International

Youth Conference, visiting

the Red Cross and United

Nations buildings and exploring

universities within London.

The trip helped me to explore

what leadership meant to me

and help my understanding of

the importance of why it is we

need to understand and listen

to others and their perspective,

which is becoming ever more

important within today’s diverse

and separated world.

My trip began in Prague, where

I was invited to take part in the

International Youth Leadership

Conference.

The conference was a weeklong

event with around 30 people

from around the world. We all

took part in recreating real-world

decisions and discussion through

model UNs, model international

crimes court and debating.

The IYLC mission is “to

facilitate an exchange of

ideas across an ethnically

diverse and socially responsible

leaders.”

During my time at the

IYLC, I felt like this is exactly

what was achieved. I was able

to talk with and learn about

many other cultures and beliefs

that I hadn’t known about

previously.

I didn’t always agree with

everyone while at the IYLC,

but the environment was one

where we all considered the

other ideas and meant we were

able to express those differences

in a way that helped each other

expand and change our own

perspective of the world and why

it’s so important to take time to

consider others’ views.

READY, SET, FLEX

Flex Fitness is set to open in just weeks and

the new gym promises to be an exercise

venue where everyone feels welcome –

whatever your fitness levels.

Whether you are at the start your fitness

journey or you’re a work out guru from way

back, the newest gym in Lincoln will be able

to cater to your every need.

Locals and owners Scott and Mel have set

up this gym, on the corner of Edward St and

Eastfield Drive, with the community in mind.

Both grew up in the area, so are aware of

the needs of local residents.

“What we want to provide is a 24-hour

gym that also offers great support and

encouragement to those who need it.

We want to see our members succeed

in reaching their goals and achieve great

things,” says Mel.

“We know there are lots of reasons for

coming to a gym – whether it is fitness,

strength, weight loss or just general

wellness. We also know that it is easier

for people to succeed when they feel

supported, have the right equipment and

programme, as well as an environment

where they feel welcome and included.”

The new gym promises to be state-of-the

art. Here you will find a range of options to

suit your exercise preferences.

“We’re bringing Life Fitness (cardio) and

hammer strength gear, group fitness classes

and personal trainers. There will be Netflix

to watch while you work out on the cardio

equipment. There will also be a smoothie

and coffee bar.”

There is also a beauty therapist on site who

will be offering half price services for the

first month.

Mel and Scott are also the parents of a

young family, including twin girls, so they

know the demands on time and pressures

family face. “We want to make sure people

are working out smartly so they make best

use of whatever time they have available to

exercise.”

If you sign up before the official open day

Mel and Scott will waive the joining fee

and you’ll also go in the draw to win 1 of 6

helicopter experiences with Independent

Helicopters. Those who become members

prior to opening are also able to join in

outdoor training sessions in Lincoln two

days a week.

Malvern Residents Form Social Housing Trust

What would you do if you were a solo parent or a senior who needed to find

affordable housing in Malvern?

A group of citizens who want to assist in finding viable housing has recently

been incorporated as the Malvern Housing Trust.

This follows the release of a report to the Selwyn District Council on 7

November 2018 entitled ‘Council Involvement in Social Housing’. This report

includes a policy statement that SDC ‘does not view social housing as a core

activity and will not be a direct provider or investor in this activity’.

The members of the Trust have begun a conversation with Selwyn District

Council about the various recommendations in this report,

which can be accessed at https://www.selwyn.govt.nz/__data/assets/

pdf_file/0008/286649/PUBLIC-Agenda-Council-7-November-2018.pdf

(pp.141–177).

If you share a similar concern for social housing issues in the district, the

Trust welcomes your involvement and your comments in its work.

For further information please contact the Chair, Philip Baldwin,

cultures and beliefs

SCHOOLS

We are all equally as important

and so this open communication

between us is needed

or else we lose sympathy and

perspective of others and their

lives.

To me this was the biggest take

away from my trip as today we

seem to only be able to divide

ourselves into groups, left or

right, but the IYLC focused us

to work together and learn that

while you don’t have to agree

with others you need to learn to

understand and listen to others

because alone we are weak – to

create change we must work

together.

After my time in Prague,

we visited Geneva. There we

explored the United Nations and

got to talk to a panel of speakers

at the Red Cross. During

my time at the United Nations

building in Geneva we were

shown the conference rooms

and while most were grand and

covered in history none spoke

more to me than the main meeting

room. Within this room is a

large sculpture of stalactites that

hang off the ceiling.

They are painted in many

bright colours. After not

knowing what the artwork

represented, I asked and was told

that some colours are meant to

be hidden behind stalactites and

not meant to be unseen when

looking at the work and that you

can only see those colours if you

were to change your position.

This was meant to signify that

no matter where in the room

your perspective of the artwork

was different from others but

even changing your position

slightly you become able to see a

whole new section of the work.

It showed that everyone was here

with their own perspectives and

that all perspectives are needed

to be able to view something as

a whole.

This idea of unity instead

of division was only further

emphasised when visiting the

Red Cross that seeks to help the

victims of war and protect those

in need. Working together we

can protect the people that need

help.

PERSPECTIVES:

Stalactites on

the ceiling of the

United Nations

main meeting

room in Geneva

change colours

depending on

where you are

seated.

Before I went on this trip I was

having regrets, I didn’t know if I

was good enough to go, but I realised

quickly that the only way

to get better and to improve my

view of the world and its many

diverse and complex people is

to go and explore and listen and

talk to them.

Through my whole trip,

I was always improving my

understanding of others and

learning to work with others

that held different views of the

world.

My take away and advice is

that unless you listen to others

and learn to understand other

perspectives you will not be able

to come to solutions that help

benefit all but instead benefit

only a group and that we can all

take time to just ask why? And

to talk to someone about their

thoughts rather than belittle and

look down upon those that differ

from ourselves.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Moth feeds on leaf litter

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

IN NEW Zealand there is about

1800 known moth species and

possibly another 1000 unknown

species yet to be described.

The moth fauna in New

Zealand is largely endemic, with

90 per cent of the species only

found here. A common endemic

species throughout the country

is the small hooked tip moth,

Homodotis megaspilata.

The moth has a 20-28mm

wingspan and has variable

brown colouration. The male

moth has a distinctive black

dot inside a white patch on the

forewing.

Adults are mainly seen

between October and March

and frequent native forest,

shrublands, gardens and coastal

areas.

Larvae are pale brown, reach

20mm long and are free-living

amongst the leaf litter which

they feed upon.

ENDEMIC: Ninety per cent of

the small hooked tip moth is

only found in New Zealand.

Hockey club places more

emphasis on performance

• By Jacob Page

WAIKIRIKIRI Hockey will

enter its third season with an

added emphasis on performance.

President Lyndal Marshall said

after two seasons of building

up the club with an emphasis

on people, pathways and

performance, it is now time for

teams to impress on the hockey

turf.

THe club has grown from 17

teams to 21 this season, and

includes fun sticks through to

senior division three sides.

THe club was affiliated to

Canterbury Hockey last year,

which Marshall said will

offer players a pathway to

representative teams.

“Our club motto is

participation, growth and

culture,” she said.

“Now it’s time to focus a little

more on performance. While

the juniors is still all about fun

and enjoyment, as the players get

older we’re introducing coaching

philosophies and strategies to

help bring them through the

grades, ” she said.

One of the long-term aims of

the club is to have premier men’s

and women’s teams.

“We have a lot of players

growing through our under-18

side, but what we’d like to form

is a division three over-18 team

ENERGY: More than 75 Waikirikiri Hockey club members turned

up for the first week of pre-season training.

SPORT

with the hope that there are some

older players out there that want

to get back in the game with an

anti-social level,” she said.

“We fielded a mid-week open

team for men and women last

year, but we’d like to have a

division three team so that

they can eventually merge with

our under-18 team and make a

division two team.”

The club was formed when

Waikirikiri and Malvern

joined forces to make a

Country Combined team,

which plays age-group games

against Kaiapoi, Rangiora and

Hurunui.

The clubs hope to include more

grades later this season.

Rolleston teen softballers

make NZ academy squad

• By Jacob Page

THREE 15-year-old Rolleston

softballers will head to Australia

to represent New Zealand in

October.

Liam Egan, Hayden Perriam

and Mitchell Dierck have been

selected in the New Zealand

International Softball Academy

under-15-16 years team for the

under-18 Blue Blaze tournament

in Sydney.

The event will see a squad of 30

split into two Kiwi teams to play

Sydney-based club teams.

It will be Mitchell’s second

time at the tournament, while

Hayden and Liam will make

their debuts.

Mitchell, a right-handed

pitcher, has been plating for the

past four years.

The trio have impressed at club

level and as pick-up players for

South Canterbury during the

season.

“I was forced to give pitching

a go when I was 11 and I realised

I was pretty decent and just kept

working at it,” Mitchell said.

“You need strong legs, height

and fitness.”

Hayden, an infield specialist

who can also play catcher, was

introduced to the sport by Liam

three years ago.

“I gave it a go and loved it ever

since,” he said. “I used to play

rugby and do swimming but

now I just love softball.”

TALENTED: Rolleston

softballers Liam Egan,

Mitchell Dierck and Hayden

Perriam will take on several

Australian club teams.

All three play for the Rolleston

under-18 team each week.

Liam is a pitcher, second base

and short stop. “I like short stop

because there’s a lot of action

there during the game and I’ve

gotten better each year.”

Rolleston club president David

Egan said it was thrilled to have

three representatives from one

team selected.

“It’s a great opportunity for

our boys to get some excellent

coaching from some greats of

New Zealand softball, like Dale

Eager, and to test themselves

overseas,” he said.

Each player has to raise more

than $3000 to get to Sydney

and their club will be running a

quiz night on March 25 as well

as sausage sizzles over the next

month.

Country cricket gears up for semis

LEESTON-Southbridge have

But opener Jake Waghorn got

Oxford-Rangiora off to a flying

Weedons fought back through

bowling from Lachie Stove and

Brad Nightingale, before the

game turned with two late-order

knocks by Mark Murphy and

Sam Fleming.

Veteran off-spinner Murphy’s

topped off by Fleming’s rollicking

half-century off just 33 balls,

which included four sixes.

Beautiful Beasts

Lisa Grennell

9 March - 3 April 2019

And then we fell in love with them...

The animals painted in this exhibition are from our

farm. Booboo, the Highland cow, being the main

subject, because of her sweet nature (and the fact

that she is my favourite). From my experience as

a beginner farmer and animal lover, I believe early

influence on both human and animal can be similarly profound. However I am a realist regarding

the consumption of animals. I don’t eat meat – so perhaps I have an unusual perspective.

Booboo, eerily painted in her majestic beauty, surrounded and almost

hidden by the reflective surface of the black mirror- like background, the

viewer too is captured in the reflective surface, a comment on human

impact on animals. This Plato quote comes to mind and challenges our

thoughts…

‘Is there something distinctive about humanity that tries to justify the

idea that humans deserve moral status, but non - humans do not?’ -

https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/moral-animal/

Within this body of work I’m celebrating the beauty within every

creature. Real moments captured are a reminder of an innocence

untainted by society. In contrast to the black paintings are some

pure white images of children, along with animals, and their

imaginary adventures. This emphasises the preciousness of

children and their innate connection with nature.

SAIFD draws crowds to Kirwee

The South Island Agricultural Field Days

(SIAFD) attracts crowds of 30,000 farmers

from near and far and is one of the oldest

agricultural events in the South Island.

This year’s SIAFD is at Kirwee from

March 27 – 29 and provides a place for

farmers to meet up with each other, see the

latest in agricultural machinery and plenty

of competitions.

The field days provide an opportunity

for people in the agricultural industry to

Working hard for our communities

network and meet customers, says SIAFD

organising committee chairman Rodney

Hadfield. With its focus on presenting

working machines, SIAFD reinforces

the relationship between farmers,

manufacturers, retailers, and technical

experts, he says.

“The field days are all about getting the

people who want to buy to come along

and look. It is an event for people who are

really ready to make financial decisions and

spend their money. We want them to come

to our event and get their field days deals.”

Power Farming Canterbury dealer

principal Geoff McCabe says the company

has doubled the size of its site at this year’s

SIAFD.

“People come from far and wide to the

field days to look at machinery. They are

very important for customers because they

get the chance to compare all the brands.”

A lifestyle section was introduced at

the 2017 event and its popularity has led

them to expand it this year with more

than 100 stalls, says SIAFD lifestyle section

coordinator Michaela McLeod.

“They will showcase a wide variety of

products – from garden sculptures and

outdoor furniture to jewellery, clothing, art,

plants and food products, including local

producers Kirwee Bees,” Michaela says.

This year will be the first time Tractor

Pull has been held at SIAFD since they

moved to their new home at Kirwee thanks

to Diesel Tune NZ. The first two days of

the field days will be practice days and day

three will be the competition day with three

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Why the burn offs?

Although it sounds odd to many, stubble burning benefits rural fire safety

during the summer. Controlled burns remove many hectares of highly

flammable material from rural areas, thus providing fire breaks in case of

accidental fire events.

Why don’t farmers burn in the morning when dew might make it ‘safer’?

The reasons for this are that the stubble has to be dry to burn well; burning

damp stubble will be less effective and will create more smoke. The safest

time to burn stubble is early in the evening, on hot days, when winds are

light or calm; unfortunately this is also the time that many non-farmers are

arriving home from work and looking forward to sitting outside with a cold

drink.

Farmers must have permits to burn stubble and follow strict rules around

things like wind conditions and smoke management. Permits must be

gained in advance and they last throughout the stubble burning season.

For more information go to www.checkitsalright.co.nz . The same permit

is required by anyone living on a property over 2 hectares who wishes to

burn rubbish, hedge clippings etc. Anyone living on a property under 2

hectares, may not burn outdoors unless they are cooking.

Stubble is the crop residue left in a paddock after the grain has been

harvested. Dealing with stubble is part of preparing the paddock/soil in

order to sow the next crop. Depending on what the next crop will be, the

farmer has a range of options for dealing with this stubble; baling and

removing the straw, leaving the stubble standing and sowing the next crop

into it, ploughing the stubble into the ground, or burning it.

Each of these options has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. The

farmer will decide which option to use based on a range of factors including

what crop will be sown next; whether the paddock has any particular weed

or pest problems which could be alleviated by burning; whether they are

trying to reduce farm emissions by reducing the hours spent on tractors,

and whether there is a market for the straw once it is baled.

As most Canterbury wheat and barley crops have now been harvested,

stubble burning is well underway on farms where it has been deemed the

best practice for this season.

Mercedes-Benz A200 perfect for conversation

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

I’VE OFTEN been known to talk

to my cars, it’s usually when one

of them is broken or has stopped

inexplicably, or when I have grief

fixing a fault.

Those words are hardly ever

complimentary.

However, I recently found

myself talking constantly and

politely to my latest evaluation

car – a Mercedes-Benz A200.

By saying: “Hey Mercedes,’’

and entering into a conversation

with voice within the car you can

initiate a raft of automated functions

such as opening and closing

the sunroof inner, changing the

radio station, displaying head-up,

or even guidance to a particular

address, just to name a few of the

many features it is capable of.

Voice recognition isn’t new, it

is even available in many budget

cars, but the A200 is different and

the operations are up a level or

two from the mainstream. If you

like to do things manually, that’s

still possible, much of that can be

done through a wide touch screen

device that stretches from the

traditional dash panel through to

the centre of the vehicle.

Of course, the A200 isn’t at the

bottom of the price structure, at

$60k ($70,000 for the test car),

there is a bit of a capital outlay,

but there is a lot on the A200

even without the extra adornments.

There is also a surprise within

the driveline. The A200 now has a

1.3-litre engine, and if you think

that’s a bit wimpy you’d better

re-evaluate. The four-cylinder

turbocharged unit pumps out a

healthy 120kW, and with 250Nm

of torque on tap there is a stroppy

little power plant under the

bonnet. Mercedes-Benz claim

an 8sec time to reach 100km/h

from a standstill, while I recorded

a 5.3sec time to make 120km/h

from 80km/h.

These are healthy acceleration

figures, and you can tell by the

feel beneath the throttle that it’s

a zingy, lively engine that delights

in working hard, yet, it is

also the fuel miser you’d expect

from a small displacement unit.

It is rated at 5.7-litres per 100km

(50mpg) on a combined cycle

which sits well with my test

figures – an average of 7l/100km

(41mpg) was registering on the

fuel usage meter, along with a

stunning 4.6l/100km (62mpg)

instantaneous figure sitting at a

MERCEDES-BENZ A200: Thrifty 1.3-litre engine.

steady 100km/h (engine speed

1800rpm).

Combining economy and performance

is never an easy build,

yet that is certainly the case with

the A200, it is lively and a real

darling to be behind the wheel of.

The engine is honest and it delivers

smoothly through a sevenspeed

double-clutch gearbox.

Don’t read me wrong, you treat

the A200 as if it was a traditional

automatic, it’s only at take-off

where it is a little abrupt, but

thereafter the changes are quick

and smooth.

Of course, paddle-shifters are

fitted for those who like to take

control of the gearshift protocols,

and a sport mode can be

selected just to enhance engine

urgency a little. Not that it needs

any encouragement, it is a willing

worker to the redline, and it does

so with a soft engine tone that

never sounds as if it is working

out of its comfort zone.

On the road the A200 is a lot

of fun. It offers decisive cornering

characteristics with a firm

steering feel that delivers surety

and direction. Riding on low

profile Bridgestone Turanza rubber

(225/45 x 18in), there is solid

tread grip with the surface of the

road and enough sidewall flex so

that ride isn’t too rigid.

Weighing in at around 1400kg,

the A200’s tyres don’t carry a lot

of load, and any hint of body

roll is quickly negated by firm

spring and damper rates. That’s

not saying the ride is hard, there

is healthy compliance within the

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

A200, $60,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4419mm; width, 1796mm;

height, 1440mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

1332cc, 120kW, 250Nm,

seven-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8sec

• Fuel usage – 5.7l/100km

suspension and the cabin is well

isolated from rough road shock

(and there’s plenty of that in

Canterbury).

Mercedes-Benz has a strong

reputation for performance, and

the A200 is a worthy recipient of

the badge of the three-pointed

star. However, it is the entry level

model, and for that reason it also

needs to be practical. It’s not a big

car, but it is airy inside, and all

those on board are treated to high

seat comfort and just enough

space so that long journeys aren’t

taxing.

Even though the evaluation

car was carrying a lot of optional

extras, it must be noted that

there is a long list of specification

extras that can be built into

any Mercedes-Benz on order.

Personally, I’d be a base model

buyer, even in standard form

there is a lot of car for the money,

and as retirement looms a cheeky

purchase such as an A200 could

be a wise decision.

Formerly Parkhouse Garden Supplies

RICH: Little Goldstar

(top) Glowing Violet

(above right) and My

Girl (above) will all

brighten your garden

during the cooler

months.

1. NEW: ISOTOMA

AXILLARIS ‘PRETTY IN PINK’

AND ‘GLOWING VIOLET’

Two new varieties will hit the

shelves this autumn from the Fizz

’n’ Pop series. ‘Pretty in Pink’ and

‘Glowing Violet’ each produce

masses of star-shaped flowers

that cover the plants for months.

An Australian native, Isotoma

axillaris have finely cut, feathery,

bright-green foliage. They form

a tidy and compact dome about

30cm high and round. In colder

regions, they’re best grown in

patio tubs or planters that can be

moved to a sheltered spot over

winter. Alternatively, take a few

cuttings and plant them out in

the spring after all the hard frosts.

Full sun is best.

2. HEUCHERELLA ‘HAPPY

HOUR LIME’

A cross of Heuchera and

Tiarella, Heucherella are versatile

perennials that withstand heat

and cold, while being wonderful

gap-filling and ground-covering

plants. ‘Happy Hour Lime’ makes

a statement all year round with

its glowing lime-green leaves.

Planted in groups, ‘Happy Hour

Lime’ provides contrast to other

garden plants and has a real

look-at-me presence. Ideal in

sun or partial shade, they also

makes a tremendous patio plant

specimen. Over summer and

autumn, spikes of creamy white

flowers appear.

3. GAURA LINDHEIMERI ‘SO

WHITE’

This butterfly bush is a ripper, as it

flowers continuously throughout

summer until the end of autumn.

The whimsical white flowers

appear on the end of tall, arching

stems, looking almost cloudlike

as they move in the breeze.

Hardy and reliable, ‘So White’

adds a clean fresh punch of white

to brighten up sunny garden

borders. While it will thrive in

a pot, it tends to preform better

in the garden. Plant en masse to

maximise the impact.

4. RUDBECKIA FULGIDA

‘LITTLE GOLDSTAR’

This wee gem of a plant is as

bright as a button. Numerous

stems of vibrant golden-yellow

flowers boast centres punctuated

with ebony-black seed cones.

Released a couple of seasons

ago, ‘Little Goldstar’ has become

popular due to its long flowering

period – until the end of autumn

to early winter. It reaches kneeheight,

40cm or so, and forms a

round mound, from which the

stems of flowers appear. Team

it up with other autumn flowers

such as zinnia, coreopsis, gaura,

echinacea, salvia or penstemon.

5. ROSE ‘MY GIRL’

Valentine’s Day was two weeks

ago, but this glorious hybrid

tea rose ‘My Girl’ could still be

a contender for a special lady

in your life. ‘My Girl’ will keep

blooming for months to come.

Sam McGredy bred this one by

crossing ‘Northland’ with ‘Big

Purple’. With its beautiful sweet

fragrance and perfectly formed

blooms of lilac pink, it’s a real

charmer and, better still, the

flowers do not bleach or fade

in the sun. ‘My Girl’ has a

compact habit in relation to

other bush roses, making it

ideal to use at the front of a

rose border, backed by tall

types like ‘Iceberg’. It is

described as disease resistant,

therefore requiring little

maintenance.

6. ECHEVERIA ‘VIOLET

QUEEN’

Succulents come in numerous

types, colours, shapes and sizes.

This one is pretty and catches

the eye with its dusky silvery

leaves, which curl up at the tips

to form neat rosettes of foliage.

Over the cooler months, the

plant changes colour to shades

of violet and mauve. Echeverias

have a shallow root system,

therefore they can grow in the

even the smallest pockets of

earth. Full fun or partial shade

are options, though the ground

does need to drain well as, like

many succulents, echeverias

loathe wet feet. Ideal for patio

planters, hanging baskets and

window boxes. Plants quickly

multiply and are easy to divide

into new plants.

Selwyn District Plan

PRIVATE PLAN CHANGE 59

GW Wilfield Ltd has lodged a private plan change request with the Council. The

plan change seeks to rezone approximately 73.5ha of land at West Melton from

Living 2 and Living 2A to a Living WM South Zone, to allow for more intensive

residential development.

Selwyn District Council

Clause 5 of the First Schedule, Resource Management Act 1991

Plan Change 59 (PC59) proposes to change the Selwyn District Plan (Townships Maps

and Plan text) to rezone approximately 73.5ha of land at West Melton from Living

2 and Living 2A to a Living WM South Zone, to allow for more intensive residential

development. The subject land is located on the south side of West Coast Road/State

Highway 73, bounded by Weedons Ross Road to the west and is the whole of the area

known as the ‘Wilfield’ subdivision.

PC59 proposes amendments to the Selwyn District Plan that include:

· amending the District Planning Maps to rezone the subject land from Living 2 and

Living 2A to a Living WM South Zone

· amending Township Volume, Appendix 20 Outline Development Plan – West Melton by

deleting the existing Outline Development Plan (ODP) and replacing it with two ODPs

· renaming the existing Living WM Zone to Living WM North Zone, with consequential

amendments to district plan provisions that make reference to that zone

· amending Township Volume, A4.5 Townships and Zone, Table A4.4 Description of

Township Zones

· amending Section B4 Growth of Townships, Residential Density – Anticipated

Environmental Results

· amending the explanation to Townships Policies B4.3.98 and B4.3.101

· introducing rules to manage fencing, buildings and subdivision within the proposed

Living WM South Zone

The plan change request and the assessment of why it is needed can be read at

Council’s Rolleston Headquarters and Darfield Library and Service Centre and can

be viewed online at libraries and service centres in Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and

Rolleston or at www.selwyn.govt.nz.

aspect of this plan change. Submissions must be written and in accordance with Form

or oppose any of the initial submissions. A Council hearing will then be arranged

Presenting your home for sale?

The presentation of your home

doesn’t mean spending thousands

on an upgrade either! So why

wouldn’t you want to do everything

possible to make it appealing to

prospective purchasers?

Street appeal

The exterior of your home is the first

thing buyers will see, so the property

needs to look well-kept and inviting. Take

a look at your place from the street and

see it through a buyer’s eyes. So, cut the

lawns, trim trees, plants and hedges, add

some garden lights and place a nice pot or

plant by the front door. Ensure the house

exterior is cleaned or freshened with new

paint if necessary, hose down drives, paths

and fences, put stylish new numbers on

the house and perhaps buy a funky new

letter box!

Make an entrance

Even if your entrance or hallway is

small, you can still give it some wow! A

large mirror adds light and makes an

entrance look twice the size. Fresh flowers,

candles or a stylish piece of art create an

inviting first impression. Ensure floors are

clean whether timber, tiles or carpet.

Create space

Light, air and space are three key

factors in presenting a home to the

best advantage. Open up curtains

and windows and use lamps and light

fittings for mood and ambience. Arrange

furniture to maximise space and remove

items that make the room appear

cramped.

Fresh feel

Freshen rooms with new paint if

necessary, but aim for neutral tones which

are more versatile for buyers. Add a splash

of colour in cushions, throws, artwork or

a vase of flowers. Invest in a new duvet or

bedspread and always make the bed!

Clear out clutter

Storage space sells but clutter

complicates! Clean out your cupboards,

shelves and garage, and get rid of

unnecessary clutter. Buyers inspect

wardrobes and cupboards so tidy them up

and reduce the number of photos, books,

nicknacks on display – they distract

buyers, too!

Beautify the bathroom

Replace or resurface fittings if necessary,

but otherwise you can simply beautify

your bathroom with thorough and

fastidious cleaning, thick opulent towels,

a tray of beautiful soaps and some lush,

green plants. Invest in a new shower

curtain or laundry hamper, and maybe a

sleek, modern towel rail.

Clean clean clean

Cleaning is a mandatory part of

selling your home: have carpets, rugs

and upholstery commercially cleaned

and sanitised, clean drapes and blinds to

look like new, polish glass and furniture,

wash down all surfaces and fittings in

the bathroom and kitchen, clean all light

fittings, wash windows inside and out,

deodorise your home to eliminate any

odours from pets, cooking or smoke.

Outdoor spaces

Even a small patio, deck or terrace

can be enhanced with a café table and

chairs. Add some colourful accessories –

placemats, candle lamps, pots and plants,

and there you have an extra living area.

If space is not limited, hang a hammock,

string some outdoor lights, position a

garden sculpture or create a water feature

that buyers will love.

Hire a handyman

Squeaking doors, dripping taps, cracked

tiles, broken fences, leaking toilets or

appliances that don’t work are a turn-off

for buyers. If you can’t repair or replace

things yourself, then hire a handyman to

make sure everything in your home works

as it should.

Finish it first

Buyers want to see a finished home,

not one that’s still being fixed! So finish

everything before you list your home

for sale, then launch it onto the market

when it looks its absolute best – you have

nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Key reasons

to buy new

Buying new has many advantages. No one has

yet lived in your brand new home and it has that

new home smell and feel.

That doesn’t appeal to the villa crowd.

But many people dream of a home in a

new suburb.

There are many other advantages -- such

as being able to customise the home before

it’s built. Buyers love it that their build

guarantee covers most things and there’s

little maintenance to do for the first 10

years.

There are a long list of reasons some

people dream of buying new.

They include:

• Current Building Code requirements

specify a higher standard of insulation

and glazing than you can expect in an

older home, which makes your new home

warmer in winter and cooler in summer,

meaning cheaper to run. In addition there

has been a vast improvement in the quality

and technology of construction materials

over the last decade.

• New homes are designed for modern

lifestyles with walk-in wardrobes, double

or triple car garaging, en suites and heat

pumps.

• Internal access garaging.

• Indoor-outdoor flow. Home builders

before the 1970s rarely thought about this.

• Automatic pool covers and electric

curtains are included in a lot of new

homes, he says.

• In a new subdivision you’re not going

to have five cross-leased small homes next

door to your architecturally designed fivebedroom

dream home, he says.

• New purpose-built shopping and

service centres cater for the modern life.

• New schools can be popular. New

schools are being designed with “Modern

Learning Environments”, which are

considered better layouts for 21st-century

learning.

Another important factor is it’s easier

to get a mortgage. New Reserve Bank of

New Zealand loan to value (LVR) ratio

restrictions from October 1 don’t relate

to new homes. Likewise the KiwiSaver

HomeStart grant is doubled for first time

buyers.

When it comes to new apartment

buildings they’re built to a higher standard

of earthquake/fire proofing and, hopefully,

are no longer leaky.

There are, of course, disadvantages to

buying new. Not everyone wants to wait

six or 12 months to move into their home.

Other downsides include:

• Borrowing to cover the progress

payments is more complex than taking out

a mortgage on an existing property.

• Builders and developers can go broke,

leaving the buyer in an awkward position.

• With some new homes the buyer

effectively needs to become a project

manager.

• You have to deal with council for

building and sometimes resource consent.

• The location may be further from the

centre than you wanted.

• If it’s infill housing you might have a

cross lease situation that some people find

tricky.

• There are often teething problems with

a new build.

• You won’t get a quaint tree-lined street.

• Your section will most likely be smaller

than that of an existing home.

• Fences, paths and landscaping might

need to be added at a cost.

in the Selwyn District

A showhome

that sets

itself apart

Impressive and unique describe

Generation Homes’ totally new showhome

in Halswell Common, a community style

higher density housing development in a

green garden setting.

Overlooking a reserve, this new concept

in showhomes includes a two-storey home

separated yet interconnected to its garage

with a self-contained apartment above (all

part of one title).

“The house is built to a homestar

rating system of 7, higher than minimum

building code,” explains Evan Beker, Joint

Venture Partner of Generation Homes

Christchurch.

“An environmental management plan

was produced, which included minimising

and measuring waste. A manual for

operating the various features of the home

was also written up.”

French doors access a

west facing deck.

Upgraded insulation, large thermally

broken windows and Velux skylights open

up the house while capturing the sun’s free

energy for heating efficiency (backed up by

heat pumps). Outdoors a raised vegetable

garden beds, fruit trees and native planting

fit with the environmental features of the

home.

The architecturally designed four

bedroom (or three plus study) home has

a natural division between living and

upstairs bedroom quarters and with a

separate flat, is ideal for those wanting

space for older children, a relative or to

rent out.

Walking through the elegant entry/

formal reception area one looks up 2½

storeys to a raked ceiling, setting the scene

for this contemporary modern home.

Furnished with the latest Finnish

The kitchen’s splashback is

glass over designer wallpaper.

The showhome is at 19 Holmes Hanover Lane, Halswell.

Marimekko print fabrics beautifully

enhance the light streaming through the

windows and skylights into the various

parts of the home.

There are two living areas where lounge

adjoins living, dining and kitchen space

along with two outdoor living options.

French doors open wide from the dining

area to a west facing deck, and stacking

sliders lead from the kitchen to a covered

breezeway; also the walkway connecting

the garage building.

The cook’s kitchen has a butler’s pantry,

glass splash back over designer wallpaper,

upgraded appliances, engineered stone

bench tops, Island tower Fawcett and gas

cooktop.

The New York style master bedroom has

internal shutter windows opening over

the front entry atrium. The large walk-in

robe with upgraded wardrobe organisers

and luxuriously tiled ensuite with double

vanity and large tiled shower, ensure no

hold-ups in the morning.

The main bathroom (upstairs) is modern

with higher than average specifications in

the tiled floor, freestanding bath and floor

mounted vanity. Another separate toilet is

downstairs along with the laundry where

there is a walk-in linen room.

The garage is a larger double with ample

storage under the private stairway leading

to the self-contained flat. This has a large

living area with built-in kitchen and

Making the most of

show home viewing

Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for

features and fittings to put into a new home. It can also be helpful

for getting a spatial feel for other aspects of a house design.

Before heading out for a day’s

viewing, conduct an internet search.

identify the locations of show home

villages and the types and sizes of the

various building company’s homes on

display, noting down the square metre

size of each home.

if wanting a high end, architectural

design, focus on the larger homes that

have desirable design features. if at the

entry or middle level of the market,

earmark homes that fit this taking in

other show homes for extra ideas.

allow sufficient time when visiting each

show home, asking for a floor plan that

has room sizes before walking through.

Check also the floor to ceiling height

of the rooms and consider how this feels

and whether you prefer a cosier feel with

the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or

more spaciousness created with a higher

stud or exposed ceiling beams.

if doors and windows are taller than

normal, weigh their effect in creating

a more luxurious and spacious feel,

against potential inconvenience for small

children, cleaning and maintenance.

on entering each room, take account of

how much furniture is in each room and

whether there is sufficient space for the

furniture you will have in the room and

the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look

too, at storage capacity throughout the

home and whether this is adequate.

in the living areas, consider whether a

lounge separated from the family living

room or a true open plan kitchen, dining,

living/lounge area is preferable, and

compare internal kitchens with those that

have natural light.

Look too at the layout of

the kitchen: whether to have

an island sink or breakfast

bar where a newspaper can

be read, and children can

sit and draw or complete

homework; the positioning

of appliances; and how

important having a pantry is.

for the little rooms, equate

space and features desired

with that needed, especially

if the budget needs to be

sharp. it might be nice to

have a large walk-in shower

with double shower heads

but is this just fanciful and

will the extra cleaning annoy you long

term. a laundry in the garage is also more

economical though a separate laundry

may be handier.

Bring the garage size into the equation

also. as these vary considerably, assess

the actual measurements of each garage

viewed comparing this with the space

needed for your motor vehicles and other

items to be stored there. if a good number

of toys will be housed there, it may be

sensible to increase the size of this area of

the home.

By imagining what you need, want and

will have in your new home, you will be in

a better position to confidently choose a

design that works for you.
