Crowded school bus

poses safety concerns

• By Anan Zaki

CHILDREN freighted like goods

from A to B.

That’s how West Melton School

teacher Aaron Taylor described

transporting 66 year 7 and 8 pupils

on a 38-seater bus every week to

their technology class in Hornby.

The bus travels on a highway,

reaching speeds of 80km/h

en route to their class at Hornby

High School.

West Melton School has pleaded

with the Ministry of Education for

another bus, but their calls appear

to have fallen on deaf ears – the

ministry saying it’s legal for pupils

to stand as the bus’ weight limit was

not exceeded.

The Government will require

children to be seated on school

buses in 2021, but that won’t be

soon enough for West Melton

pupils – aged between 10 and 12,

Mr Taylor said.

“If they identify it as a risk, why

are they waiting until 2021?” he

said.

The Ministry of Education’s head

of education infrastructure service

Kim Shannon said 2021 was the

“appropriate time” to introduce

the seating rule as new school bus

contracts will start in the year.

from the editor’s desk

PEOPLE LIVING in the Birdlings Flat area

have every reason to be fairly angry about

the failed rocket launch from the Kaitorete

Spit (page 3).

It came back to earth in the wrong spot

and ignited vegetation.

The area is tinder dry and there is a total fire ban in place.

The fire ban doesn’t cover rockets but surely commonsense

should have prevailed.

Good luck to Canterbury University in trying to be the first

student group to blast out of the earth’s atmosphere. But when

it’s so dry?

Oh, and keep the dog in the car if you’re going to the spit.

‘Any dog will be shot,’ says an (amateur) sign. Journalists? No

warning signs. I’m not sure which is more of a problem.

ANNUAL PLAN 2019-20

E19/7226

Environment Canterbury is considering its 2019-20

Annual Plan.

While the plan largely aligns with the most recent

Long-Term Plan, small changes to our fees and charges

policy and our revenue and financing policy are being

considered. Increased funding of public transport to

match funding from NZTA and increased funding in water

management, pest control and biodiversity are also being

considered, as well as a reduction in air quality funding.

These will impact on some ratepayers, depending on

their location, when the 2019-20 Regional Council

rate is confirmed.

Rocket launch ends in blaze

• By Louis Day

A SECRET record-breaking

rocket launch attempt ended

with a grass fire next to Lake

Ellesmere.

Canterbury University group

UC Aerospace tried to become

the first student group in the

world to launch a rocket into

space on March 3.

The university said the

attempt was not successful, but

is saying little more about the

project.

“This is a story that hasn’t

been in the media because they

didn’t get out of the earth’s

atmosphere,” a university

spokeswoman said.

But inquiries reveal the

rocket was launched from

Kaitorete Spit, which protects

Lake Ellesmere from the sea,

about 10am. The rocket, which

was planned to crash back into

the sea, landed in a paddock,

causing a fire which destroyed

vegetation, Little River

Volunteer Fire Brigade acting

station officer Matt Ledgerwood

said.

When firefighters arrived,

students involved with the

project had put the fire out.

“With a bit of bad luck it could

have been a lot worse, Luckily

the grass was quite short and

there was no wind,” he said.

Sue Morrow, who lives at

nearby Birdlings Flat rushed

towards the fire after being

alerted of smoke coming from

Kaitorete Spit on the Birdlings

Flat Community Residents

Facebook Page.

“It’s bloody stupid doing that

at this time of year when it is

tinder dry,” she said.

The fire had been put out by

the time she got there.

The spokeswoman said

they had all the appropriate

permissions from various

agencies, including the Civil

Aviation Authority and NZ

Space Agency as well as various

controls in place to prevent

harm in a range of eventualities.

Kaitorete Spit is home to

several rare species of insects,

reptiles and birds and is of

significant cultural value to

Ngāi Tahu due to more than 500

archaeological sites being found

there.

The Canterbury University

launch was part of the

international race to become the

first university group to blast a

rocket beyond the Karman line.

The Karman line is 100km

above the earth’s surface and

is widely recognised as the

boundary to outer space.

The University of Southern

California’s rocket propulsion

laboratory set the highest

altitude reached by a university

group in March 2017 at 44km.

Controversial plot from Rolleston director

DARK HUMOUR: Co-director Ross Gumbley with the portaloo

that will be used to kidnap Gerry Brownlee in The Court

Theatre’s show EQ F@#%ING C.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHEN THE February, 22, 2011

earthquake struck, Rolleston’s

Ross Gumbley was like

thousands of other Cantabrians

who wondered if he would make

it through unscathed.

He was on the third floor of

the Arts Centre when the deadly

quake hit.

“I remember standing in the

doorway of my office thinking

you know at any moment the

third floor I am standing on is

going to give way and I am going

to be in free-fall,” he said.

Gumbley said the building

would have only required about

three more seconds of shaking

before it lost its integrity.

“It’s only on reflection afterwards

you go you know that was

a close call.”

Now he is co-directing a

controversial spoof on the Earthquake

Commission – and the

main character isn’t impressed.

The play, EQ F@#%ING C, has

former Earthquake Recovery

Minister Gerry Brownlee right in

the thick of it.

He gets kidnapped in a portaloo

by a couple, Michelle

and Daz, in a desperate bid to

help them resolve their neverending

quake issues with EQC.

An all too familiar story, one

might say. But Mr Brownlee isn’t

Gerry Brownlee

overly pleased it appears.

When asked about the show by

Selwyn Times last week he said:

“What I would say is, what can I

say? They have told me they are

doing it. That is their right but it

is a little disappointing they have

decided to use . . . look I am not

going to make any comment. I

have got no comment to make”.

With that the phone went dead.

Interview over.

The Court Theatre has invited

Mr Brownlee to attend the

opening of the show but is yet to

hear back from him.

Gumbley describes the show as

an “absurdest” comedy. It was up

to audiences to make a judgement

on what the message is behind

kidnapping Mr Brownlee.

“I am not sure what the message

is to the audience is . . . we

present plays and the audience

SELWYN TIMES

Geoffrey Dolan

decides, we are not making a

statement either way,” he said.

As for what happens

to Mr Brownlee, Gumbley said:

“You have to come and see it, I

can’t give away those plot points.”

The Court Theatre had taken

legal advice about the content

in relation to Mr Brownlee.

Geoffrey Dolan plays

the Ilam MP.

“We all recognise what this

couple has been through and the

writer looks at the effects those

earthquakes had on us,” Gumbley

said. ​

The play is written by

Christchurch-based writer

Christina Stachurski.

Pre-schools

get ready to

Shave for a Cure

ROLLESTON and West Melton

pre-schools are taking part in

this month’s Shave for a Cure.

The fundraising initiative

raises money for Leukaemia and

Blood Cancer New Zealand.

The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool

& Nursery centres in Rolleston

and West Melton are getting

behind the annual event, with

owner, Tracy Summerfield

preparing to shave her hair on

Friday, March 29.

“My dad has terminal cancer

and a number of staff and

families in our community have

been affected by cancer. The

LBC is such a fantastic charity

that does so much good,” she

said.

LBC supports patients and

their families living with

blood cancer or a related blood

condition. With donations, the

charity can continue to fund its

core services – patient support

programmes, research, information,

awareness, and advocacy.

Both Cat’s Pyjamas centres

will also hold a Crazy Hair Day

on March 29.

Cancer sufferer’s big steps to give back

• By Anan Zaki

ANGIE MILNER knew she

had to be strong when she was

diagnosed with stage two renal

cancer a year ago.

The 47-year-old from Leeston

put on a brave face for her four

children, husband and mother.

But inside, she was struggling.

That is when she turned to the

Cancer Society for help.

To give back, she is taking part

in the Relay for Life at Brookside

Park, Rolleston, from 10am

to 10pm on Saturday. It aims

to raise money for the charity,

which has helped her cope with

the pressures of the illness.

“[When I was diagnosed] it

was one of those things where I

thought, oh my God, what do I

do, where do I go?” Mrs Milner

said.

A friend referred her to the

Cancer Society in Rolleston.

“It’s been a home-away-fromhome,

it gives you confidence to

find out who the new you is,” she

said.

Emotional support was the biggest

help she received.

“The first time I went to a

group meeting, I stayed behind

and [the staff] gave me leaflets

and told me where to go and get

support if I needed any help to

get to hospital appointments,”

NOT GIVING UP: Angie Milner of Leeston is taking part in the

Relay for Life to raise awareness for renal cancer which she

was diagnosed with last year.

Mrs Milner said.

“At Christmas, they brought

around a hamper that the volunteers

had put together. And I’ve

got a disabled granddaughter and

they brought around a teddy bear

for her.”

Mrs Milner had a cancerous

tumour in her left kidney

removed recently and is awaiting

test results to see if she is clear of

the disease.

“The form of cancer I have has

a high return rate so I have to do

bloods every year,” she said.

Awareness is another big

reason why Mrs Milner is taking

part in the relay.

“I’ve been sick since February

[last year] and I had been going

to the doctor’s backwards and

forwards. I work for Christchurch

Hospital [as a sexual health clinic

worker] and one of the doctor’s

here said to get it sorted once and

for all,” Mrs Milner said.

When her general practitioner

requested a scan, it was thought

to be kidney stones.

“I went back to get my results

thinking kidney stones and

found out it was renal cancer,”

Mrs Milner said.

She said typically older people

get diagnosed with renal cancer

but she wants younger people to

get checked if they have urinary

tract infection issues.

The Relay for Life has 31

teams taking part. They will

do laps around Brookside Park

continuously for 12 hours –

walking or jogging.

Each team must have at least

one member on the field at any

given time. There will also be a

candle lit ceremony, a Cancer

Society spokeswoman said.

Teacher falls on pupil – no injuries

•From page 1

West Melton School has also

received support from Selwyn

MP Amy Adams.

Said Mr Taylor: “They [pupils]

are freighted goods from A to B

and it doesn’t matter how they

get there.”

“At the moment when all

children are seated at three to a

seat, we’ve got the whole aisle,

from the back to the front [of

the bus] of kids standing,” Mr

Taylor said.

Ms Shannon said the ministry

took safety of children “very

seriously” but won’t provide

another bus to West Melton

School’s technology class.

“Each bus has a

certificate of loading that sets

out how many passengers

can be seated and standing,

and this varies from bus to

bus depending on its physical

attributes. The bus referred to

[by West Melton School] is being

operated within its limits and we

aren’t planning to add another

bus to this service,” Ms Shannon

said.

Mr Taylor was critical of the

ministry’s response.

“Are they really caring

about safety when teachers are

standing on the first step of the

bus’ entrance because there’s no

SQUEEZE: There is not much room for movement in West

Melton School’s technology class bus.

room? Are they worried about

my safety? Would they stand

there? I doubt it.”

Mr Taylor said there was an

incident a fortnight ago when

a teacher fell on a pupil. But

luckily the child was unhurt.

“I fear for my life to be fair, “

he said.

Ms Adams spoke to the school

on Friday and will raise the issue

to Government agencies this

week.

“I certainly plan to be writing

to the Ministry of Transport and

Education about it,” she said.

Ms Adams also intended to

write to WorkSafe as the school

Amy Adams

Aaron Taylor

would be required to keep

children in a safe environment.

“At the moment it seems

that they [the school] are being

prevented from doing that,” she

said.

Ms Adams said if the ministry

believed seating children was

an issue, it should not have to

wait until 2021 to roll out the

changes.

“These are intermediate school

kids, not five or six year-olds.

Three pre-adolescent preteenagers

sitting on a seat with

one of them balancing on the

edge with their feet sticking out

into the aisle is simply not safe,”

she said.

Govt under fire for scrapping road funding

• By Anan Zaki

THE GOVERNMENT is under

fire for scrapping road safety

projects in the district.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency said it has cut funding

for 12 district-wide road safety

projects in

the 2018-2021

National Land

Transport Programme.

Mayor Sam

Broughton and

Selwyn MP

Sam

Broughton

Amy Adams

were both critical

of NZTA’s

decision.

The roads were initially on the

list of projects in line for funding,

but were reprioritised based on

the Government Policy Statement

– which cut $5 billion from

the State Highway Construction

budget.

Ms Adams said the reduced

state highway budget meant the

district lost out to other parts of

the country.

“As a result of the Government

cutting $5 billion from the state

highway budget and prioritising

cycle lanes and a trolley bus service

for Auckland, Selwyn’s roads

will be less safe,” she said.

“Documentation I received

from NZTA indicates that these

NO FUNDING: Among funding cuts for road safety projects is the intersection of Shands and

Hamptons Rds, where plans for a roundabout had previously been included.

sites had been identified as having

high safety risks and the aim

of the recommended projects was

to reduce the severity and frequency

of crashes and to reduce

deaths and serious injuries,” Ms

Adams said.

NZTA regional relationships

director Jim Harland said there is

still a chance some of the projects

could get funding in three to six

years time.

“While the projects listed

are not currently indicated for

funding in this three-year period

2018-21, they are still retained in

the programme should funding

become available in the future or

their relative priority increase,”

Mr Harland said.

Mr Broughton met with NZTA

officials early last month to express

his disappointment over the

funding cuts.

“The State Highways are

funded 100 per cent by the

NZTA, those ones particularly

have proven to be some of the

most dangerous intersections,”

he said.

Dunsandel Community Committee

chairman Nigel Barnett

said a four-lane highway to Ashburton

is what the residents want.

Safety improvements alone would

not be enough, Mr Barnett said.

“We don’t think we’re very high

priority for this Government and

we’re not surprised at all that

they would see fit to pull funding

out of this area.”

Mr Harland said in spite of

the 12 projects not getting funding,

the district is getting more

money overall.

“Within the NLTP 2018-21,

the NZ Transport Agency is

proposing to provide more than

$11 million for projects in Selwyn

District,” he said.

“Compared to the previous

three-year period, 2015-18, this

amount was $6.8 million and

included SH1 and Jones/Hoskyns

Rds signalisation $1.3m, Jones

Rd widening $720,000, upgrade

to LED lights $3.2 million and

other safety improvements $1.6

million.”

Mr Broughton said while it was

pleasing it received more funding,

he was still disappointed

with the 12 projects being cut.

Ms Adams said it was “extremely

disappointing” that people

across the district are paying

increased petrol taxes and still

not receiving funding for “much

needed” projects.

“The Government has

announced its plans of

implementing a policy of zero

road deaths by 2020, yet it

is not funding badly needed

safety improvements to our

local highways. There is a real

disconnect between the talk and

Masefield Drive almost done

• By Anan Zaki

REPAIRS TO a disputed

stretch of a road and

footpath in Rolleston have

almost been completed.

The bulk of the work on

Masefield Drive outside

The Warehouse was

finished early last week.

The district council

said on Monday the only

job left to complete is the

line marking, which was

delayed due to rain last

week.

The road and footpath

were left unfinished for

more than a year after

the district council

and Rolleston Square

developers, Rolleston

Square Ltd, were at odds

over which of them should

finish the work.

Discussions over

payment for the repairs are

still taking place, district

council assets manager

Murray Washington said.

In early January, the

district council said it

would initially foot the

$93,000 to fix the road –

and asked Rolleston Square

Ltd to share the costs.

Rolleston Square Ltd

director Lloyd Bathurst did

not respond to questions.

FIXED: The footpath and road on

Masefield Drive before and after it

was repaired.

Selwyn Times first

highlighted the issue of the

incomplete footpath and

road on Masefield Drive in

November.

Rolleston Residents’

Association chairwoman

Leonie MacLachlan is

pleased for the people

of Rolleston and the

neighbours who live

opposite Rolleston Square.

“It’s a pity

it took this

long to be

completed.

It’s good

to see that

the council

actually have

taken the

initiative to

complete the

work,” Mrs

MacLachlan

said.

“That’s the

beauty of

community.

The

community

talking about

things at times

we actually

can get a huge

result.”

The repairs

included new

kerbing and a

footpath along the north

side of Masefield Drive,

connecting to the recently

completed traffic signals at

Rolleston Drive through to

Dryden Ave.

A new section of footpath

was also installed on

McCaulay St to improve

safe pedestrian access to

the shopping centre.

Lincoln High awards

its best and brightest

JOINT WINNERS: The Pauline Miller Cup for excellence in year

11 was shared by Rosie Bicknell and Kenshin Hayashi.

• By Anan Zaki

TOP ACADEMIC achievers

have been recognised at Lincoln

High School.

Year 11 and 12 students from

last year were presented with

awards in a ceremony at the

school.

Lincoln High School associate

principal Stephen Rout said the

top achievers were only recently

recognised as their NCEA

external exam results were

released in January.

The year 11 elite scholars –

with at least 100 NCEA level one

excellence credits – were Rosie

Bicknell and Kenshin Hayashi.

The Pauline Miller Cup for

excellence in year 11 was also

shared by Rosie and Kenshin.

Said Mr Rout: “Rosie achieved

first in digital technologies

programming and Japanese,

and first equal in science. Her

total of 114 excellence credits is

exceptional and gained her an

elite scholar award.”

“Kenshin achieved first in

mathematics, and first equal in

science, French and economics/

accounting. He gained 102

excellence credits in total, which

is outstanding and we recognised

this with an elite scholar award,”

he said. The year 12 elite scholars

– with at least 80 excellence

credits at NCEA level two or

higher – were Molly Barker,

Georgia Gwatkin, Sophie Hill,

Alan Li, Maria Mendoza Nieto

and Annalyse Welford.

The Maureen Drayton Cup for

excellence in year 12 was taken

out by Alan Li who studied three

NCEA level three subjects –

physics, chemistry and calculus.

scholarship in these three

subjects. Scholarship assessments

are usually done by year 13

students rather than year 12.

Approximately three per cent of

students studying level three are

awarded scholarships.”

“In all three subjects, Alan

gained a scholarship, including

an outstanding scholarship

in physics. Outstanding

scholarships are achieved

by about three per cent of

scholarship students, so this is

an exceptional achievement,” he

said.

Daniel Alexander

World champion shooter right on target

Full bore target shooter

Daniel Alexander

was part of the team

which recently won

the under-21 world

team championships,

representing New

Zealand. The 19-year-old

of Burnham spoke to

Anan Zaki about his life

as a shooter

Tell me about your recent

success?

The New Zealand under-21

rifle team, which I was a member

of, competed at the team and

individual world championships

in late January and early

February [in Upper Hutt]. In

the team match, we ended up

winning. The competition had

the United States, Great Britain,

Australia and New Zealand in

the under-21s. This was the first

time we [under-21 team] has won

a medal.

Is this the biggest success in

your career?

Oh, for sure, this has been the

best thing I’ve ever done. It’s

the second New Zealand team

I’ve been involved with, but last

time was a transtasman match

against Australia and we lost. I’m

really, really happy that the team

did well. In fact, at the world

championships, every single

other competition was won by

an individual Australian or an

Australian team. So we upset

their clean sweep and we were

happy with that.

Can you describe the moment

you won the under-21 world

team championships?

I was pretty on edge. We

were at the 1000-yard mound

at the last range of the day. The

Australians were just behind us

in terms of the score, it was in the

hot afternoon sun and we were

baking. I was watching our last

two shooters them from behind

the scoreboard. Our last shooter

had to get five out of five in every

shot, and he did. The Australians

got a couple of fours, and missed

a couple of wind changes. It was

incredible. They finished, then

we finished, we added the score

and thought: ‘Hang on a minute,

have we won?’ And we had. There

was a bunch of cheering and we

got yelled at by the open New

Zealand team for making too

much noise on the mound.

When did you pick up target

shooting?

I started in 2014 after I stopped

playing junior cricket. I was

tired of cricket and wanted to

do something different. I played

soccer [as well as] cricket and

running around the field all

day didn’t seem like something

I wanted to do when I became

a teenager. My dad [district

councillor Mark Alexander]

knew a member of the Malvern

Rifle Club and I joined there and

been shooting ever since.

Were your parents supportive

about your new choice of sport?

They were a bit surprised. Mum’s

not the most firearms enthusiastic

person, she doesn’t really like the

noise – which is understandable

as it’s a really loud sport. But dad

was very supportive, he ended up

getting a firearms licence because

I was only 14 at the time. But I was

the only one using the rifle [under

his supervision]. Since he watched

me take up the sport, I now coach

him because he says if he’s going to

take me to the range he might as

well join in.

What inspired you to take up

the sport?

In the last five years of Lincoln

High School I took the bus past

the [Burnham] military camp.

I’ve seen the guys training every

morning. And that’s probably an

influence because when I sit here

at home I can hear them training

with their rifles on the 25-yard

range. So I’m definitely exposed to

guns, which helped me get into it.

Living near the military

camp, have you ever considered

joining the army?

I’m actually looking at joining

the defence force soon. I did

the first year of university last

year but I didn’t enjoy it as

much as I want so this year I’m

reconsidering my options and

the defence force is one I’m

considering.

Was it quite challenging when

you started target shooting?

Oh yes for sure, extremely

[challenging]. I probably started

becoming good in the 2017-2018

season when I first got selected

for the New Zealand team. The

first three years was really hard

work. Hitting the target was

hard to start with. Then I started

hitting the target, then I started

hitting the centre and now I hit

the centre consistently.

What’s the competition like in

New Zealand and Selwyn?

It’s not a humongous

number of people but it’s

fierce competition. I generally

travel around all the South

Island competitions. I shot in

Oamaru for the Otago Regional

Championships and generally

shoot in the Canterbury and

Malvern Championships.

And in a fortnight we’re going

over to Westport for the West

Coast Championship. So it’s

a reasonable-sized field, you

normally get 20-30 competitors

in total for each of those events.

It’s a tight-knit community.

What is your dream in the

sport?

Target shooting is a

Commonwealth Games sport.

My ultimate dream would be to

go to the Commonwealth Games

and win a medal. As well as going

to the next world championships

in South Africa [in 2023] and

hopefully, get into the under-25

team and the open New Zealand

team and get us to win there.

Do people take the sport up as

young as you did?

For full bore shooting that’s

a younger age because the rifles

are big and the amount of recoil

is big. Most of the people in my

team took it up when they were

16 and 17-years-old. A lot of them

also do small bore, which is .22

[rifles] indoor. A good proportion

starts that way instead of straight

on the big rifles like I did.

So you had five countries in

the world championships, what

is the popularity of the sport?

It’s like cricket and some

other sports. It’s primarily a

Commonwealth sport. It started

with the British. In the open

competition we had the Channel

Islands, United States, Canada,

South Africa, Australia, New

Zealand and even Japan.

For the 13 to 14-year-olds out

there right now, who are in your

position deciding a sport to play,

what would you say? Do you

think parents might be hesitant

because it’s a firearms sport?

In terms of it being a

firearms sport, it’s actually

one of the safest sports. We

have less injuries than contact

sports. There are lots of safety

protocols. If you want to get into

shooting, go down to your local

shooting clubs. We have two

in Canterbury, one at Malvern

and one at Ashburton. If you

don’t want to shoot the big guns,

[full bore rifles], there are a lot

of small bore clubs through out

Christchurch and Canterbury.

You can shoot .22 rifles, they

don’t recoil much and you can get

a lot of satisfaction from hitting

the targets and seeing where you

hit immediately.

Boulevard Retirement Village

A lifestyle of caring and friendship

The Boulevard is a boutique lifestyle

village catering for a variety of ages

from 55 years. We are excited to be the

only retirement village in Rolleston that

provides the continuum of

care with our future care

complex currently in the

planning stage. This will

incorporate hospital

and rest home

care along with a

memory-impaired

unit, and serviced

care suites and

apartments.

We have

completed the first

nine villas, which

are occupied or soon

will be. Work is already

underway for the next

six two-bedroom and three

three-bedroom villas; only two are

not under contract, so we are planning

to proceed with eight new two-bedroom

villas.

The Boulevard stands apart from

other villages because of its design. We

are thrilled with the way the village is

progressing. The variety of villa designs

and colours bring a unique feel; the

extensive gardens are looking great.

Keeping the semi-rural feel has been really

important, although we are only five

minutes from the central shopping

hub.

We have a number of

activities about to start;

locals from the community

are most welcome. We

would like to be seen as

an integral part of the

community.

Our villas provide for a

generation wanting more for

their future accommodation.

Our villas have full height

windows, modern furnishing,

fittings and state-of-the-art

appliances. An iPad in every villa assists

with communication. Messages go directly

through to the village manager’s phone.

Our furnishings are part of the price. You

can choose the carpet and drapes of your

choice. We try to make sure each villa is as

personalised as possible. Getting in early

allows full personal selection from colour

through to the joinery.

The villas are well insulated so are very

warm and outside noise is minimal. A heat

pump ensures the villas are warm in the

winter and cool in the summer. Being north

facing, the villas capture the sun.

As a small company, we are very pleased

that we can provide this boutique village,

which sets the standard for now and the

future. Come and view our show villas and

enquire about the next stages to be built.

Your Local Views

Teen has sights set on

Commonwealth Games

•From page 12

How much concentration and

focus is required in shooting?

I’d actually say I’m fitter

now than I was when I was

playing other sports [cricket and

football]. You’ve got to get your

heart rate down. If your heart

rate is high your hand will shake

and then your rifle will shake

and you’ll put shots all around

the target rather than the centre.

I’ve got a rowing machine at

home and I do a whole range of

body weight exercises to keep

fit. And when you’re shooting,

you need long deep breaths,

keep calm, don’t think about

your score. If you think about

your score you get all excited.

Your heart rate is going to go

up, your anticipation is going to

go up, your adrenaline is going

to go up. Especially when I’m

shooting, I basically don’t feel

my lower body. I lie down, set

my legs to how I want them. The

only thing I’m thinking about

is my hands, my head and my

rifle. Everything else is basically

dead. I shoot with ear plugs in, I

can’t hear anyone. It’s basically

zen-like. It’s just me, the rifle,

looking down the range, looking

at the flags, what I think the

wind is, do I think I want to

Rob Anderson responds to

last week’s Selwyn Times

article about drivers not

slowing down as they pass

school buses

I drive special needs students

to and from Waitaha Learning

Centre in Rolleston and can

categorically state that very few

drivers slow down to 20km/h

when passing my stationary

vehicle.

This is in spite of my hazard

lights being on plus my “school”

signs displayed at the front and

rear of my van.

There isn’t a problem at

Waitaha as we don’t drop the

students off on a public road,

rather the risks to my passengers

occur when I am picking them

up or dropping them off at their

homes and have to park on the

side of busy roads due to some

driveways being too tight to

negotiate.

As a matter of interest, an

acquaintance of mine recently

barrelled past me well over the

20km/h speed limit when I was

parallel-parked on Edward St,

Lincoln, and when I spoke to

her about it she said: “But you’re

not a school bus – I wasn’t aware

that the limit applied to peoplemovers.”

I’d like to see the police

showing a bit more proactiveness

in this area – just

the sight of a patrol car parked

near the schools affected in your

article may act as a deterrent.

Readers write about road

signs that are confusing

drivers

Lynette Dear – Just to

let you know I don’t have any

problems with the signage once

I’d worked out

what it all meant.

I use Boundary

Rd regularly

and have never

been tempted to

go through the

stop sign. To do

so would be an

excuse for poor

driving in my opinion.

Ronald Crate – I am not

from New Zealand and I find it

especially difficult interpreting

the road signs. Being from out of

country I am focused on driving

(left-side traffic is not how

we drive in the United States)

and analysing the sometimes

conflicting road signs makes it

more difficult to maintain a safe

and focused perspective behind

the wheel.

I agree with the police official

who indicates how multiple signs

(not to mention their conflicting

message) leads to

errors in driving

performance. Please

take his suggestion

and simplify the

messages, as well

as cutting back on

speed, preferably

in advance at

potentially dangerous

intersections.

Tony Rondel – We have

an intersection with stop signs

and no other signs nearby and

virtually nobody stops, a habit at

most stop signs in Rolleston area.

Sound sleep at campsite

TICKED OFF an item from the

parenting bucket list over the

weekend. Took Vittoria for her

first camping trip.

And to be completely honest,

she was so well behaved that this

won’t be as funny as you’d think.

My little (not-so-little-anymore)

cousin Anna got married

on Saturday to now husband

Lui in a beautiful ceremony at

Anna’s family home down in

Waimate.

The property is incredible,

with rocky outcrops, caves, a

flowing creek and stunning

vistas to the Southern Alps. So

lovely that it would be rude not

to camp there, which was their

suggestion for guests anyway.

I was a little concerned on

how Vittoria would behave on

a camping trip, she’s so full on

now and needs to be running

around at full speed for most of

each day.

And this camping trip would

follow yet another long drive.

Definite tantrum danger zone.

We arrived mid-afternoon, the

sun was shining and the whānau

was busy setting things up for

the ceremony.

As with any family event,

there were young cousins about

and Vittoria immediately took a

shine to sisters Lizzie and Anna

(a different one). And thankfully

they took a shine to Vittoria too.

Can you say parenting support

team?

I’m pretty glad Vittoria won’t

remember me setting up our

tent, I got there, but it probably

didn’t make me look like any

sort of outdoors-man.

So with a ready tent and a

cousin support team on standby,

we were set for the wedding.

Vittoria was so good during

the ceremony, allowing us to

enjoy seeing Anna and Lui finally

tie the knot. They’re a great

couple, loving, respectful and

quirky in pretty similar ways.

After playing for hours, eating

her dinner, my dinner and

trying for a sip of my beer, wee

CAMPSITE:

to sneak in some

lessons while

bubs finally fell asleep in her

pram. Then woke up during

speeches. Then again during

fireworks.

So we finished our time at

the party with Laura coiled in

a porta-cot with Vittoria while

I organised a ride back to our

campsite, about a pitch black

400m away (read; had a couple

more with some of the cousins).

We all slept reasonably well

once we arrived at the tent – Vittoria

and I fell into a deep sleep

as soon as we hit the mattress

– and we’ve been left with plenty

of confidence that we could do

it again.

We may need to bring some

cousins along though.

Protecting and managing

native biodiversity in Selwyn

Council Biodiversity Coordinator Andy Spanton says the mānuka stand at Tārerekautuku Yarrs Lagoon (pictured) is an original native

remnant, making it one of the most significant stands in lowland Canterbury. Credit: Robin Smith.

“It’s been great to see

so many restoration

sites developed over

the last decade”

Biodiversity is the variety of all life forms – plants,

animals, micro-organisms, the genes they contain, and

the ecosystems on land or in water where they live.

Selwyn’s biodiversity includes native plants growing

around lowland streams, wetlands on the margin of Te

Waihora/Lake Ellesmere, pockets of bush in the foothills

and large mosaics of vegetation in the high country.

Council Biodiversity Coordinator Andrew Spanton says the Canterbury Plains now contains less

than .05% of original native plant species as a result of human colonisation.

“We need to value, protect and manage our ecological legacy, otherwise it will be lost.”

Collaborating to improve biodiversity

The Council’s biodiversity programmes are guided and empowered by legislation and policies as

well as the Selwyn District Plan which is currently being reviewed.

As part of this review, a Biodiversity Working Group has been established, made up of key

stakeholders and landowners with an active interest in the protection of ecosystems and

indigenous biodiversity.

“Our priority is the protection of existing biodiversity – particularly native plants. Indigenous

biodiversity is generally considered more important than planted biodiversity as it contains the

original assemblage of plants, insects and soil biota.”

Mr Spanton works with landowners, community groups, local and central government agencies

and other stakeholders to protect and restore indigenous biodiversity. A major part of his role is to

run the Council’s Significant Natural Area (SNA) programme.

“This is where I work with landowners and managers to carry out ecological assessments to

determine the significance of native plant areas and protect and manage them.”

The SNA programme assists landowners with funding and advice and supports the continued

identification and protection of on-farm biodiversity.

“I also help landowners with native plant restoration sites across the district. It’s been great to see

so many restoration sites developed over the last decade and it’s good to support our community

in this important work.”

The Council’s Selwyn Natural Environment Fund supports this work. Applications for the

contestable fund close on the last Friday in May each year.

Case study: Tārerekautuku Yarrs Lagoon Reserve

Tārerekautuku Yarrs Lagoon: is one of the largest freshwater wetland habitats (76.89ha reserve)

remaining in the low plains of Selwyn.

Location: near Lincoln in the Ararira/LII River sub-catchment of Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere,

between Goodericks Road and Yarrs Road.

Ecology: the lagoon supports important hydrological and ecological functions within the

catchment. Numerous waterways and springs are present. The reserve contains native swamp,

forest and scrub vegetation that are now rare on the plains.

Programme: the Council has formed a landcare group and is working with Taumutu Rūnanga,

adjoining landowners, the Department of Conservation, Living Water programme, Environment

Canterbury, Lincoln University and the community to create a Reserve Management Plan. This will

help to inform and guide the future management of the lagoon.

Public consultation: the draft Reserve Management Plan will be consulted on in late autumn. For

more information about Tārerekautuku Yarrs Lagoon visit selwyn.govt.nz/yarrslagoon.

For more information about the Selwyn Natural Environment Fund visit selwyn.govt.nz/snef-application.

Selwyn Community Fund

Applications for the second round of funding from the Selwyn

Community Fund close next month.

The fund was established last year to support events and other

activities that help make Selwyn a great place, contribute to

community wellbeing, bring communities together and attract

visitors to the district.

Cr Murray Lemon, Chair of the Selwyn Community Fund

Committee says it’s encouraging to see a diverse range of

organisations applying.

“Round one awarded funding to over 20 organisations, with a total

of $39,250 allocated. A number of these organisations are from the

sports, children, events and arts sectors,” he says.

The fund is open to any recognised organisations whose principle

functions or activities are of a charitable (not-for-profit) nature.

Applications for the Selwyn Community Fund are open year round,

with funding allocated in two rounds each year.

Round two closes on Tuesday 30 April. For full details and to apply

go to selwyn.govt.nz/selwyncommunityfund.

Free course for mature drivers

We’ve teamed up with Age Concern to offer free refresher driving

courses throughout Selwyn.

The next course is on Tuesday 26 March, 9am–3pm, at the Darfield

Recreation Centre and there still are spaces available.

The course is designed for drivers over the age of 60. The course

offers a refresher of the current road rules and covers any recent

changes, allows attendees to discuss and ask questions around

everyday driving situations, and encourages them to think about

how, where and when they drive.

We also have courses coming up on Tuesday 9 April at Lincoln

Event Centre, Wednesday 1 May at Leeston Bowling Club, Thursday

16 May at Dunsandel Community Centre and Thursday 23 May at

Springston Hall.

For more information and to book contact Age Concern on

(03) 366 0903. Morning tea and a light lunch is provided.

Robinsons Road seal upgrade

Motorists on a stretch of Robinsons Road near Rolleston will soon

be in for a smoother ride.

Work is now under way on a seal extension project to upgrade

Robinsons Road, between Waterholes Road and Bellam Road.

The works includes removing vegetation, reconstructing the road

surface and laying chip seal on the 1-kilometre stretch of road,

which was previously metal.

The $300,000 project is expected to be completed by early April.

Traffic management will be in place during the project, with a oneway

system operating, and southbound traffic being detoured down

Bellam Road and Larcombs Road. Motorists are asked to slow

down, drive carefully and follow any signage and instructions from

staff working on the site.

• By Jess Gibson

AFTER A lifetime of low

self-esteem and a fear of injuries,

Jennine White felt unfit,

vulnerable and afraid to work

out.

Now the 33-year-old

performance reporting analyst

will take part in the 6km

City2Surf run on March 24

feeling better than ever.

Mrs White decided to focus on

her health in November after a

visit to her doctor to talk about

a shoulder injury turned into a

discussion about how her lack

of fitness was affecting her wellbeing.

Her doctor recommended

the ‘green prescription’, a free

programme which offers advice

from a physical activity coach.

She received a plan from her

coach Olivia Maisey and gained

the confidence to participate

in the City2Surf after she was

encouraged to see a personal

trainer, get injury rehabilitation

and see a life coach.

Mrs White is now positive she

can push herself to do the 6km

event if she alternates between a

brisk walk and a jog to take care

of her injury.

While she has finished with

the green prescription, she

said Miss Maisey has been like

her “cheerleader”. She said her

personal trainer, life coach,

family and friends have all helped

her to stay motivated.

“People like me need someone

in our corner and someone to

help us fight through to get a

better lifestyle,” she said.

Mrs White said she is focussed

on her well-being rather

than losing weight, and feels

“amazing” because of it.

“My mental health is so much

better, I have reduced anxiety

and sleep so well. I feel like I’m

on another planet now,” said Mrs

White.

Miss Maisey said it was good to

see how extra support can make a

difference to someone’s lifestyle.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Ladybirds are distinctive

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

ONE OF the most distinctive

insects in the garden is the

ladybird.

In New Zealand there are

more than 40 in the ladybird

family Coccinellidae, many of

which are native and unlike

the sterotypical foreign spotted

varieties.

The common elevenspotted

ladybird (Coccinella

undecimpunctata) was

introduced to New Zealand in

1874 to control aphids.

Both the adults and larvae

eat mainly aphids and mealy

bugs, however, eggs and small

caterpillars are also on the menu.

Although these are one of

the best predatory insects of

agricultural pests and can eat

as many as 1000 aphids in a

lifetime, they struggle to keep

up with the population growth

rate of aphids that are born

pregnant.

This ladybird ranges in size

from 3.5 to 5mm and can fly.

The red and black colouration

is a warning for birds and other

predators. When disturbed

they produce a yellow-coloured

fluid from their joints which is

distasteful.

Another defence mechanism

is playing dead and also, their

shiny dome shape makes them

hard to pick up.

Females lay yellow eggs on

foliage usually near infestations

of prey. Larvae are dark grey

with black or orange protrusions

along the top of each segment.

Adults have an overwintering

inactive stage between April and

September where they can be

found in crevices of bark, holes

in fence posts and the like.

Big year for Waikirikiri Hockey

Last week an article on

Waikirikiri Hockey contained

a number of errors. Club

president Lyndal Marshall

was also misquoted.

Selwyn Times apologises

for the errors. Today Lyndal

Marshall talks about what’s

happening at the club this

season

WAIKIRIKIRI HOCKEY will

enter its third season with an

added emphasis on performance.

Our club motto is People,

Pathways, Performance. After

two seasons of building up the

club with an emphasis on people

in year one and pathways in year

two, it’s now time to build on

performance in year three.

The club strategy has been

adjusted with this new focus and

we are working on adding player

development programmes and

further support for coaches to

enable team performance.

Now it’s time for the focus to

be a little more on performance.

While the juniors are still

about fun and enjoyment,

as the players get older we

are introducing coaching

philosophies and strategies to

help bring them through the

grades – we want to create a

club where all players are able to

perform to their best.

The club has grown from 17

teams to 21 this season, and

includes fun sticks through to

senior division three.

ENERGY: More than 75 Waikirikiri Hockey members turned up

for the first week of pre-season training.

The club was affiliated

to Canterbury Hockey last

year, which gives the club a

sustainable future to be able to

grow into senior grades, and

enables a pathway to those

players with aspirations for

representative teams.

An example of a development

and performance programme

was when Selwyn Hockey

was formed and Waikirikiri

and Malvern joined forces to

play in the inaugural country

hockey tournament which

played age-group games

against Kaiapoi, Rangiora and

Hurunui.

The club hopes to include

more grades this year in this end

of season tournament.

One of the long-term aims of

the club is to have premier men’s

and women’s teams.

We have a lot of player growth

through the junior grades and

are looking for more high school

and senior players to join the

club.

annual meeting to find

ABI MCCULLAGH is taking

a new route in her footballing

pathway.

The 16-year-old former

Canterbury age-group

representative has taken a role

as Selwyn United’s community

development officer this season.

The year 13 Lincoln High

School student is

looking to do health

science at Otago

University next year.

“The goal would be

to do medicine but

if not, I’d like to do

physiotherapy and link

it back to sport,” she

said.

McCullagh has been

a regular on the Selwyn

football scene since she

was eight-years-old.

“I played a lot of my early stuff

in the Leeston-Southbridge area

while playing out at Ellesmere,”

she said.

“By 11, I was taking it quite

seriously and that’s when I joined

what is now the Selwyn Talent

Centre.

“I played in two national

SPORT

Student’s role at

Selwyn United

age-group tournaments but I

saw that playing wasn’t my No 1

priority heading into the future.

I’m probably at Foster Park

now more working than I was

playing,” she said.

McCullagh said she loves the

people at the club and is excited

to be involved in the new role.

“I’ve had a small glimpse of

what is involved behind

the scenes,” she said.

“The communication

and planning while

also coming up with

ideas is important.”

McCullagh said she

will have a focus on

volunteers at the club.

”We want to offer

more support to mums

and dads who want to

coach and offer them

Abi McCullagh support and pathways

if they want to take it

further.”

She said it has been great to be

a familiar face and it had made

her transition into the role a

smooth one.

She hopes the role will give her

a boost ahead of her studies next

year.

Leeston-Southbridge v Southbrook final

LEESTON-Southbridge and

Southbrook will battle for

country cricket’s ultimate crown

this month after both sides

emerged victorious in two

nail-biting semi-finals.

Leeston-Southbridge edged

Cheviot by eight runs in the one

v four contest, while Southbrook

pipped Oxford-Rangiora by two

wickets in their home semi-final

in the CRV Ambreed Country

Premier One Day Competition.

On a quality pitch at Lincoln

University on Saturday, a highpowered

Lee-Bridge batting lineup

elected to set a total against

the travelling Cheviot Magpies.

Openers and Canterbury

Country representatives Rupert

Young and Joel Harden made

promising starts before they

were both dismissed by Country

teammate and quick bowler

Harrison Cox.

The double breakthrough

brought together ex-Dutch

international Tim Gruijters and

Harry Chamberlain who scored

freely before Chamberlain mistimed

a pull shot, leaving Lee-

Bridge at 58/3.

Ben Chamberlain

and Gruijters then formed a

quality 70-run partnership

before Gruijters was dismissed

for 54 in a bizarre run out

where Chamberlain hit the

ball into Gruijter’s bat which

CRUCIAL: Tim Gruijters top scored for Leeston-Southbridge

with 54, which included a vital 70-run fourth wicket partnership

with Ben Chamberlain.

rebounded to the bowler who

then whipped off the bails.

The middle-lower order of

Lee-Bridge supported Ben

Chamberlain (53 runs off 97

balls) in the back end of the

innings, while good Cheviot

bowling and fielding restricted

Lee-Bridge to 199.

Cox was the pick of the Cheviot

bowlers, taking 4-47 off his

nine overs, well supported by

Henry Sidey’s medium pace who

finished with 2-31 off eight overs.

In reply, Cheviot had a

nightmare start with Country

rep batsman Will Hamilton

dismissed first ball of the innings

by ex-Nelson rep Tim Field.

Ted Whelan and Country

top-order batsman Ben Hartland

came together to form a quality

partnership of 63 runs before

Whelan was run out for 24.

While Hartland went about

his business racking up runs,

none of the Cheviot middle

order batsmen were able to stick

around with him.

Two sharp stumpings

from former Country rep

wicketkeeper-batsman Toby

Doyle helped reduce the Cheviot

XI to 164/6 – heaping extra

pressure on the classy Hartland

to try and win the game singlehandedly.

But when Hartland finally fell

for a brilliant century (111 runs

off 125 balls) in the 42nd over off

the bowling of Will Macfarlane,

so did Cheviot’s main hopes

of a victory. They eventually

fell eight runs short, finishing

on 191/8 in their 45 overs.

Leeston-Southbridge will meet

Southbrook in the competition’s

final at Mainpower Oval in

Rangiora on March 23 after

SPORT

the ‘Brook overcame Oxford-

Rangiora in another thriller at

Southbrook Park.

Batting first, Oxford-Rangiora

made 174/9 in their allotted 45

overs, with club mainstay and

No 4 batsman David Fulton left

stranded on 51 off 97 balls. Mitch

Power chipped in with a valuable

40 down the order, as the innings

failed to gain full momentum

against the relentless and quality

Southbrook bowling line-up.

Oxford-Rangiora started

the defence of their total well,

snaring the big wicket off Matt

Brine cheaply, before Tony Hancox

(33 runs off 48 balls) and

former Black Cap Shanan Stewart

added 59 runs for the second

wicket.

But when Stewart was trapped

LBW by Josh Mariu for 36, the

‘Brook shuffled to a precarious

102/5 in the 27th over.

Alex Simpson (16) and skipper

Tom Rodden (26) chipped

in with valuable cameos but it

was Olly Heweston-Brown who

guided the ‘Brook home.

With just two overs left and

two wickets in hand, Heweston-

Brown’s composed 31 off 37 balls

saw Southbrook into yet another

country club final.

Tai Tapu fail to cap

off stellar season

• By Jacob Page

TAI TAPU School were unable

to cap off a stellar Canterbury

Country primary cricket

competition, losing the final

to a composite North Loburn,

Loburn and Sefton team by eight

wickets last Wednesday.

Tai Tapu did not post a

big enough score batting first

in the twenty20 decider at

Sefton Domain. The visitors

were bowled out for 55 in 16.3

overs.

LCC’s Charlie Ward started his

strong overall performance by

opening the bowling and taking

3-10 off 2.3 overs.

LCC chased the target down

with seven overs to spare with

Charlie scoring 23 not out after

coming in at No 4, while opener

Lachie Cameron-James was 15

not out.

LCC will play St Canice’s

School from Westport in the

regional round. A date and venue

for the game has not been set

but a proposed game in Hamner

Springs early next week is being

considered.

WINNERS: Tai Tapu School lost to a combined North Loburn, Loburn and Sefton team in the

Canterbury Country primary cricket competition final.

Mitsubishi Triton a perfect load carrier

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

I’M LEFT disappointed if I

have a vehicle and don’t drive

it somewhere near to its full

potential, especially if it’s a ute.

So when I recently had

Mitsubishi’s new Triton I

put it to very good use. I had

purchased a bulky Trade Me item

from Dunedin and I used the

evaluation vehicle to make a oneday

return trip.

Almost eight hundred

kilometres of highway running

certainly didn’t test the Triton’s

comprehensive Super Select II

four-wheel-drive capability, but

the excursion served to prove

how comfortable and capable the

modern ute is on a long journey.

I felt fresh when I got home and

was left understanding why utes

are now the vehicle of choice for

some family buyers.

The Triton is all new for 2019,

and while it gets a fresh look and

upgraded engineering, it still has

the same engine and basic chassis

and suspension elements. That’s

a good thing, the Triton can mix

it with the market front-runners,

and the way

it sits in the market, constantly

sitting around third place in

terms of sales behind Ford’s

Ranger and Holden’s Colorado

means it is very much a preferred

option.

The evaluation ute was a highgrade

VRX-specced double cab

with automatic transmission.

The latter is an all-new six-speed

type, it is a beauty with smooth

shifts, and in VRX form it also

has a paddle-shift sequential

mechanism. In this specification

the Triton is priced at $62,990

which, to my way of thinking,

is good value considering its

specification level and how well it

stacks up to the opposition.

Major items include leather

trim, keyless entry and ignition,

cruise control and speed

limiter (perfect for the long

straight roads heading out of

Canterbury), rear view reversing

camera, and a host of advanced

safety features.

Under the bonnet sits a 2.4-litre

four-cylinder turbocharged diesel

engine. It is rated at 135kW with

437Nm of torque, both figures

are realised low in the rev band

at 3500rpm and 2500rpm. Even

though it is diesel-fed it is a

lively engine and gets about

its work willingly, it it also one

of the quietest engines in its

MITSUBISHI TRITON: At home on the highway or off-road trails.

class, and that’s a credit to the

engineers – getting a big block

four-potter to work smoothly

takes some doing. It is evident

that the Triton has the benefit of

much soundproofing and it has

a well refined engine in the first

instance.

A lot of development has also

been carried out to cut down fuel

use, it is now to the point where

an 8.6-litre per 100km (33mpg)

combined cycle can be claimed.

On my journey south the

trip computer was constantly

listing at around that figure with

a 6l/100km (47mpg) readout

showing at a steady 100km/h, the

engine just loping over gently at

1700rpm. If you are doing long

highway hauls, those figures

mean large fuel cost savings.

On the subject of figures, the

Triton four-wheel-drive has a

tow rating of 3500kg and it will

haul a payload of 905kg in a deck

area measuring 1520mm x 1470

x 475mm (depending on deck

liner). It also has a useful 220mm

of ground clearance, all of these

figures are right up with market

demand.

The test ute was riding on 18in

wheels with quite chunky 265/60

Bridgestone Dueler tyres. Even so,

they ride quietly, even on coarse

chip seal, they also offer direct

feedback through the steering.

Utes aren’t known for their ideal

handling but it was nice to have

some surety when I pushed

quickly through the tricky corners

‘Famous for their roasts!’

• Price – Mitsubishi Triton

six-speed automatic.

• Performance –

• Fuel usage – 8.6l/100km

between Oamaru and Dunedin.

The Triton has handling ability

unrealistic for a working vehicle

built on a ladder chassis and load

bearing live rear axle.

Interestingly, Mitsubishi still

has a manual gearbox option

on Triton and that would be

the model for me; however,

the new automatic adds to the

sophistication, and with all of

the ingredients in place to make

the driving process smooth, it

is certainly a standout vehicle

which has a major role in the

working environment.

Today’s pick-up buyer is

reaping of the benefits of long

and gradual development

processes. It’s no wonder our

market is led by utes, the Triton is

a vehicle you can comfortably put

the family in for that trip into the

high country, skifield access road,

or to the beach for a swim or surf.

It’s also the quintessential tow

and carry vehicle.

Gardening

Harvest the last of your summer crops

AUTUMN IS a great time to

tackle jobs in the garden that

the heavy summer heat doesn’t

permit, like getting your lawn

back into shape.

Plus it’s an ideal time to sow

winter crops if you haven’t

already.

Here are five tasks to get you

started.

1 The beauty of growing fruit

trees at home means harvesting

fruit when they are at their best.

Tree ripening enhances flavour

and results in juicy, delicious

fruit picked right at their peak.

The last of summer fruit crops

like peaches, nectarines, grapes

and passion fruit come to an

end. Use bird netting to ensure

our feathered friends don’t steal

the last of the harvest.

2 Harvest remaining summer

crops as they come to an end and

start sowing and planting winter

veges. This is especially important

in cooler areas of the South

Island. The reason we do this a

little earlier than other regions

is so plant roots have time to

establish before temperatures

drop and growth slows. Winter

crops include beetroot, broccoli,

carrots, cabbage, cauliflower, silver

beet, spinach and those great

VIVID: It’s time to remove old sunflowers and cornflowers and prepared beds for winter

flowering displays.

South Island root crops; swedes

and turnips.

3 It is important to ensure

plants enter their dormant season

in the best health. Give them a

final application of fertiliser so

they’re in good condition to withstand

cooler and wetter winter

months and are ready for growth

in spring. In cooler regions apply

fertiliser to fruit trees, ornamental

plants, shrubs and roses up

until the end of March.

4 Summer flowering annuals

are coming to the end of

their growing season. It’s time

to remove old plants and prepare

beds for winter flowering

displays. Prepare soil by adding

in plenty of compost and mix in

well with existing soil to a spade

depth. Some favourite winter

annuals to grow are; alyssum,

calendulas, cinerarias, cornflowers,

larkspur, pansies, poppies,

primulars, stock, sweet william

and violas. Grow them in the

garden or containers to brighten

up the winter months. If planting

in containers, toss out old potting

mix. Old mix will be lacking

nutrients and over time can break

down and cause poor drainage.

5 Late March is an excellent

time for lawn renovation or

the laying of new lawn as

this coincides with the cooler

temperatures and more consistent

rainfall. Use a lawn patch for

tiding up smaller areas. Lawn

fertiliser can now be safely applied

in cooler regions where there is

reasonable rainfall. If there is a

dry spell, water regularly to ensure

the fertilisers are washed into the

lawn.

Local

News

Now

Autumn is time to get bulbs in the ground

Fire rages, homes at risk

AFTER AN especially dry

January and February, hopefully

the rain will return in good

quantities throughout the

remainder of March, bringing

some relief to the garden and

making caring for it that much

easier.

Harvesting of late summer

vegetables and pip fruit should be

in full swing, and it is also time

to begin preparation for winter

vegetable and flower gardens.

Vege garden

Where vegetable plants have

survived the long, dry summer,

harvesting should include;

beans, beetroot, cabbage, carrots,

celery, corn, cucumber, eggplants,

Jerusalem artichokes, lettuce,

melons, onions, potatoes, pumpkin,

radish, silver beet, tomatoes

and yams. It’s a good idea to save

seeds of vegetables that have

performed well. Clean the seed,

dry completely, label and store in

a paper bag in a dry part of your

garden shed.

Start preparing the areas for

your winter vegetables with the

addition of fresh compost and

raise the level of “beds” to ensure

good drainage over the wet

months. Winter vegetable seedlings

or seed can now be planted,

including; beetroot, broccoli,

brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower,

carrots, lettuce, onions,

radish, silver beet, spinach,

swedes and turnips.

Flowering annuals and

perennials

Most summer flowering annuals

are now near the end of

their flowering season, although

some like alyssum and lobelia will

continue to flourish throughout

winter. Winter annuals to plant

in March include; calendulas,

cineraria’s, cornflower, nemesia,

pansy, primulas, snapdragons,

stock and wall flowers. Prepare

soil for planting.

Bulbs

Bulbs to plant in March include

anemones, crocus, daffodils,

freesia, hyacinth, ixia, lachenalias,

ranunculus, sparaxis, tritonia, tulips.

As with any plants, preparation

of soil before planting is the

key to success, especially as your

bulbs will remain in the soil undisturbed

for a number of years.

BUSY: Prepare the soil before

planting bulbs. Autumn is the

ideal time to repair or sow

lawns.

Fruit trees

Many varieties of apple and

pear are now ripening. The last

peach – golden queen, matures in

March. Passion fruit also matures

in March. Either pick passion

fruit off the vine when a deep

purple colour or collect them off

the ground. Maintain adequate

moisture levels around citrus

trees to encourage winter-maturing

fruit to develop healthily and

apply a layer of mulch.

Herbs

Many perennial herbs start

flowering at this time of year and

can either be cut back or dug

out and replaced. Remember

that herbs prefer a hot, dry, well

drained site so consider this when

planting your winter herb garden

and choose the sunniest site.

Lawns

Following a very dry summer

for lawns, as autumnal rains

arrive you can start renovating

existing lawns or lay a new lawn.

With existing lawns, apply lawn

fertiliser, ensuring it is watered in

well. Continue to water your lawn

in the cooler parts of the day to

maximise water usage.

Container gardens

Time to replant your containers

either with winter flowering

annuals or with leafy salad

vegetables and/or herbs. You can

place some bulbs in deeper containers

to add interest in spring

when their flowers emerge. For

best results, toss out last season’s

worn-out soil and replace with a

fresh new soil mix.

Roses

After a difficult summer,

autumn flowering of roses can

often be outstanding. Continue to

‘dead head’ finished blooms and

remove any deadwood. Apply

fertiliser every four to five weeks.

Some varieties e.g. iceberg will

continue flowering until the onset

of winter. It’s also a good time to

do a little planning and browse

rose catalogues.

SAFER ACCESS TO INTELLIGRO

Heading north on Main South Road you will use the

Weedons Ross Road off ramp. Manion Road is just before

the railway lines on the left-hand side.

Due to the temporary closure of Curraghs Road at Main South Road, you will need to use the following

detour if you are heading south along Main South Road. Turn right into Dawsons Road, then left onto Jones

Road, left onto Curraghs Road and Manion Road is on your right just after the railway line. Follow Manion

Road almost to the end - you’ll see our big green sign, you can’t miss it!

Autumn is

a fantastic

time of year

The temperatures are

dropping so get new

lawns down, and tend to

your existing one as well.

Whether you are starting a

new lawn from scratch, or

giving your existing lawn

a spruce up, we have the

products you need to get the

job done. Come in to our shop

and check out all our fantastic

lawn products in our display,

or have a look online and type

“lawn” in the search bar.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Plenty of section choice

Developing land for residential housing

is in full swing in Rolleston with newer

housing subdivisions like Acland Park,

Coles Fields, Gould’s Estate, Branthwaite

and its neighbouring Falcon’s Landing while

Faringdon is extending eastwards.

In Lincoln, stages 7-10 are now selling at

Flemington. At Te Whāriki, the Matuku and

Hudson stages are the latest on the market

and Verdeco Park where 60 lots of 640-6,000

sqm has just begun. The Mike Greer Barton

Fields lifestyle village is also extending with

stages 5 and 6 now released.

West Melton’s Wilfield where larger

sections are available, has been steadily

filling.

Smaller housing developments in towns

like Darfield, Kirwee, Leeston, Prebbleton

and Southbridge pop up from time to time

along with opportunities to purchase land.

Further out, land is still available at Castle

Hill Village.

The affordable sections available in

Rolleston are attracting many first home

buyers as well as investors, to the town. For

example, sections in Acland Park start at

$155,000 for 400sqms. This price includes

free boundary fencing and site specific geo

reports. The range in section sizes clearly

targets families to this subdivision which

has plans for a community hub of shops,

eateries, a medical centre, and childcare

facilities. A showhome village is also

expected to open there later this year.

“Rolleston has become popular for first

home buyers where there is considerable

competition with many choosing a house

and land package with a larger housing

company. A number of smaller builders are

also constructing spec homes for the market,

in Rolleston and around the district,” says

Mike Goatley from One Agency.

Sales of sections have been steady at

Branthwaite where Generation Homes chose

to open a new showhome.

“People want to walk or bike to town

and have it easy for their children to get

to school. Branthwaite is the closest major

development to Rolleston College and

shops, explaining its success.” says Evan

Beker, Joint Venture Partner of Generation

Homes Christchurch.

Evan believes an advantage of Rolleston

is the Selwyn District Council’s approach to

the area plan where population growth is

expected to reach close to 18,000 people by

2025.

“The town’s able to move forward with a

fair degree of coherency with good choices

for people due to the availability of wellpriced

land, a competitive well-functioning

market with a number of experienced

developers and builders, and growing

amenities and services,” suggests Evan.

With such a large supply of

affordable building sites along with

increasing amenities in Rolleston

and other townships, it is likely that

growth will continue throughout the

district in the years to come.
