THE TWO Selwyn police

officers who dragged alleged

mass killer Brenton Tarrant

from a vehicle had come straight

from a training session on how

to deal with armed offenders.

Details of their bravery and

swift actions have come to light

in the past few days.

They were training with

armed offenders’ squad personnel

at The Princess Margaret

Hospital when they were mobilised

to find the central city and

Linwood mosques’ gunman.

The Selwyn Times has decided

not to identify them until police

chiefs reveal their names –

which they are considering.

Instinct led the two officers

to head along Brougham St,

thinking the gunman could

take that route away from the

Linwood mosque. Moments

later they spotted a vehicle

weaving in and out of lanes

with its hazard lights on and

someone fitting the description

of the alleged gunman. They

confirmed the registration was

connected to the shooting, did

a U-turn and began to discuss

from the editor’s desk

JACINDA ARDERN did the two Selwyn

policemen who captured accused gunman

Brenton Tarrant a disservice in my view.

On TV, she described them as “rural

community cops.”

Maybe I’m wrong but it inferred rural

community cops don’t have the skills or training to stop a Brenton

Tarrant. The two Selwyn officers, who smashed their vehicle into

Tarrant’s, pulled him from the vehicle and handcuffed him in a

matter of seconds, are highly trained professionals (see page 1).

The fact they are working in a rural area doesn’t mean they can’t

perform in the most trying of situations, as they demonstrated on

Friday. Their actions were up there with the best specialist police

and army squads in the world.

If I’m wrong in my assumption Jacinda - my humblest

apologies.

Rolleston Fireworks about to implode

Fire rages, homes at risk

District council

unlikely to

take over event

• By Anan Zaki

THE FUTURE of the popular

Rolleston Fireworks event is

under threat.

The organisers have retired and

asked the district council to help

run the annual event – but it says

it doesn’t have the ability to put

it on.

District council chief executive

David Ward recommended the

council not be involved in the

fireworks display as it is not one

of its “core services.”

District councillors voted to

leave the matter on the table

for another month so further

conversations can be held

between council staff and the

Rolleston Residents’ Association

fireworks subcommittee, which

runs the event.

Former subcommittee

chairman Jens Christensen said

he is retiring after 20 years of

involvement due to ill health. His

secretary Trisha Pullin is also set

to retire after 15 years.

The subcommittee has run the

popular fireworks event for 20

years. It attracted about 15,000

UNCERTAIN FUTURE: District council chief executive David Ward (above left) says the council

people last year.

“The organising committee

have always stipulated that they

still wish to partner with council

to effect this public display of

fireworks. The Achilles heel is

that the chair and secretary have

come to the end of their use by

date,” Mr Christensen said.

Said Mr Ward: “During the

spring and summer months,

council is already running a

significant list of community

events across the district, and

to add the Rolleston Fireworks

would simply be to add to the

exhaustive list, and stretch our

limited resources.”

Residents’ association

chairwoman Leonie MacLachlan

said its other volunteers could

not commit enough time to

running the event.

Said Mrs MacLachlan: “People

in the community need to know

that at this stage it [the fireworks]

is actually not going ahead.”

“We at the Rolleston Residents’

Association are all volunteers.

Unless another group is able to

put their hand up and volunteer,

it is definitely finished,” she said.

In a deputation at last

Wednesday’s district council

meeting, Mr Christensen

disagreed the district council

could not run the event.

“No way can I concur with

the chief executive that council

has no expertise in running

such matters – it has a whole

department involved with

community events,” he said.

The event costs $70,000 to run

and does not make a profit, Mr

Christensen said.

The money from the entry fees

has always been used to run the

following year’s event.

Local policemen do what ‘any cop

CAPTURED: The two Selwyn policemen about to pull Brenton Tarrant from his vehicle in

Brougham St on Friday.

•From page 1

A pursuit was not an option

because of the likelihood of more

carnage and the risk to the public.

So they pulled alongside,

swerved hard left into Tarrant’s

vehicle, brought it to a stand still,

and leapt from their vehicle.

But they saw what appeared to

be explosives and the weapons

that had caused havoc at the

mosques.

Instant decisions had to be

made.

One of the officer’s ran back to

the police vehicle to warn other

armed officers on their way of the

danger.

But he lost sight of Tarrant, and

worried about the safety of his

colleague, abandoned the plan

and went back to the gunman’s

vehicle, at the same time yelling

for the public to stay back.

Guns trained on Tarrant, he

was ripped from the vehicle,

put on the ground and

immobilised.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern

said after the apprehension,

the two officers were from the

Lincoln Police Station.

That was incorrect. One is from

the Lincoln station and the other

from an undisclosed station in

Selwyn.

NZ Police Association

president Chris Cahill said he had

spoken “in depth” to one of the

officers and had been in contact

with the other.

He said he – and the rest of the

police – were extremely proud of

the pair.

Police around the world

had also contacted Mr Cahill

to ask him to pass on their

messages of pride, support and

commendation.

“They’re pretty humble guys,

certainly ‘hero’ is not a word

you’ll hear either of them use,”

Mr Cahill said.

“They acted. They made a

decision, and they acted and they

got a result.”

Mr Cahill said the officers

maintain they were just doing

their job and “any cop would

have done it.”

The officers did not want any

public fanfare or attention.

“They are the sort of people

who want to get on with the job,”

said Mr Cahill.

“But they understand the

response.”

Selwyn MP Amy Adams

told Selwyn Times there was a

sense in the district of gratitude

and amazement at the officers’

bravery.

Celebrating Excellence in Early

Childhood Education & Care!

The team at The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool & Nursery Rolleston and West

Melton centres are celebrating on being awarded ‘Very Well Placed’ to

provide positive learning outcomes for children, with a 4 Year Review term by

the Education Review Office (ERO), which is the highest possible review term.

The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool & Nursery

West Melton is the only early childhood

centre in West Melton to have been

awarded this sought after review term,

and The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool &

Nursery Rolleston is currently the only

centre in Rolleston to have ever received

this ‘Very Well Placed’ term consecutively.

“We are absolutely thrilled that all our

hard work has been recognised by the

Education Review Office as being Very

Well Placed to ensure positive learning

outcomes for children”, says Gavin

Summerfield, who owns and operates

the centres along with wife Tracy. We

set very high standards of achievement

for our children, our teachers and our

management team”.

“Our fantastic teachers work extremely

hard to ensure that children attending

our centres receive only the best quality

of education and care - we are incredibly

fortunate to have them as part of The

Cat’s Pyjamas family”.

Some comments made by ERO about The

Cat’s Pyjamas centres are:

• A strong feature of these centres is the

generously resourced and spacious

indoor and outdoor environments

which enable children to experience a

rich range of learning. Children benefit

from a specialised local curriculum that

supports their physical and cognitive

development.

• A strength of these centres is the

positive relationships evident between

teachers, children, babies and infants,

adults and whānau. Teachers and

leaders are committed to ensuring the

children in their care receive high quality

care and learning.

• Teachers respectful and collaborative

approach results in a strong, stable

team and trusting relationships.

• In the under two areas, teachers ensure

a calm and unhurried pace of care

and learning. Babies and toddlers

experience nurturing and responsive

approaches from their teachers.

Teachers work closely with parents

and whanau to follow children’s home

routines, respond effectively to their

individual cues.

• Teachers support, and extend children’s

play through skilful guidance. This

includes appropriate literacy, and

numeracy in the context of children’s

play, with a strong emphasis on

supporting children to develop social

and emotional competencies.

Mayor breaks deadlock over town centre

• By Anan Zaki

ROLLESTON will be represented

in planning its future town

centre after a debate which forced

Mayor Sam Broughton to break

the deadlock.

At last Wednesday’s district

council meeting, a vote was

made to include councillors

from the Selwyn Central Ward

(representing

Rolleston) in a five

person governance

committee to

deliver the town

centre project.

Five councillors

voted for and

Sam

Broughton

against the

idea to include

Selwyn Central

councillors Mark Alexander and

Nicole Reid, with one abstention.

Mr Broughton voted in

favour to pass the proposal. Cr

Alexander abstained because he

was nominated.

Before the vote, council chief

executive David Ward said in a

report that two or three members

of the governance committee

should be made up of the

council’s property committee

or they should be employees or

associates of the district council.

Mr Ward’s report was strongly

opposed by councillor Craig

Watson.

“If this was about deciding the

lease rates for a Postie Plus or

Burger King for example, then

sure the property committee

should lead the project,” Cr

Watson said.

“But this is about this

[Rolleston] community

who elected four members

to represent them having

democracy followed and clear

local accountability for decision

making,” he said.

Mr Ward reaffirmed there will

be community engagement even

without Rolleston representatives

on the governance committee to

ensure residents get their views

across. Referring to the property

committee chairman Pat

McEvedy, Cr Watson said elected

members should be in place for

their local input, not their skills.

“A councillor who is a farmer

from Ellesmere [Cr McEvedy]

has no more skills on town centre

development than a councillor

who is an environmental

consultant from Selwyn Central,”

Cr Watson said.

HAPPY: District

councillor

Craig Watson’s

push to

include

Rolleston

representation

in its town

centre plan

was a success.

MARTIN

HUNTER

Cr McEvedy took exception to

the comment.

“It’s not the first time I’ve been

assaulted on being a farmer

from Ellesmere . . . I’m quite

proud of it.” He stressed that the

property committee, skilled staff

or external stakeholders should

be involved as this is not just a

Rolleston project.

“This is not Rolleston, this is

a Selwyn centre. This is about

building a solid town centre, a

commercial centre, community

centre, retail centre for Selwyn.”

Cr Watson nominated Cr

Alexander and Reid to work in

the entirety of the Rolleston town

centre project as they were both

from the greater Rolleston area.

Cr Alexander is currently

the only Selwyn Central

representative on the six member

property committee – Cr

Watson said his inclusion will

represent both the property

committee and Rolleston.

After the vote, favouring Cr

Watson’s nomination, he said

he was pleased. “I am happy

input into this matter.”

Uni rocket sparks criticism

Fire chief

unhappy

with launch

• By Louis Day

ONE OF the region’s top fire

chiefs has joined the criticism

over Canterbury University’s

rocket launch, which led to a

grass fire on tinder dry Banks

Peninsula.

Deputy principal rural fire

officer Al Hutt said the launch

was not handled well.

“The picture we were painted

by the aerospace people (at the

university) was that there was

zero risk of this happening and

I did even ask them what would

happen if it crashed on the spit

and they assured me it wouldn’t

but it clearly did,” he said

yesterday.

Mr Hutt also questioned the

timing of the launch during

a total fire ban season, which

remains in place.

Last week Selwyn Times

revealed Canterbury University’s

UC Aerospace had attempted to

become the first student group in

the world to launch a rocket into

space.

The launch was made from

FIRED UP: Fire bosses are unhappy a student rocket launch

ended up causing a fire on Banks Peninsula.

remote Kaitorete Spit near

Birdlings Flat on March 3.

The rocket did not get out of

the Earth’s atmosphere and came

back down on the spit, causing

a fire. It was supposed to have

crashed into the sea. The fire was

put out by the students involved

in the project before the Little

River Volunteer Fire Brigade

arrived.

Said Little River Volunteer Fire

Brigade acting station officer

Matt Ledgerwood: “With a bit of

bad luck it could have been a lot

worse, luckily the grass was quite

short and there was no wind.”

Rocket launches do not require

a fire permit.

But Fire and Emergency NZ

has the legal ability to prohibit

or restrict activities in certain

circumstances.

Mr Hutt said they would be

taking a harder line with any

future rocket launches.

“In this particular activity, we

have a bit of case history where it

has gone wrong, whereas before

we had nothing. So it would

have been difficult to impose

restrictions on people but now, if

they came back, I would be able

to say last time this happened

so I am going to impose some

restrictions.”

Canterbury University said last

week there were no current plans

for more launches in the area.

The launch was also criticised

by nearby residents.

Little River Wairewa

Community Trust chairman

Robert Burch labelled the rocket

launch as a “silly thing to do.”

“Why are they launching a

rocket when we have a total fire

ban?” he said.

Birdlings Flat resident Sue

Morrow also had concerns.

“It’s bloody stupid doing that at

this time of year when it is tinder

dry,” she said.

The rocket 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

with 44km.

$30m upgrade

College on way

Fire rages, homes at risk

ELLESMERE College will

undergo a $30 million

redevelopment.

The decision was announced by

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern

and Education Minister Chris

Hipkins on Thursday.

Principal Ronan Bass said 95

per cent of the buildings at the

college are relocatable structures

built in 1980. The buildings are

fast approaching the end of their

lifespan, he said.

“Staff and students are

extremely excited about

the prospect of a school

redevelopment, but are very

aware of the need to ensure that

the rebuild is future-proofed

and adaptable to cope with the

changing nature of education over

the coming decades,” Mr Bass

said.

A design process is due to

be completed by the end of the

year. Ellesmere College board of

trustees chairman Mark Maddren

said the school will engage with

students, staff and the community

in the rebuild process.

“As a result, the board will be

looking at ways to ensure the

community has input into the

design of the new school,” Mr

Maddren said.

Grandchildren inspire book

A HORORATA grandfather’s

bedtime stories have been made

into reality.

Bill Rodger published his series

Rancho Cucamunga Kids, which

was inspired by stories he told his

nine grandchildren on his farm.

“Growing up and to this day I

struggle to read,” the 71-year-old

said.

“So instead of reading stories

to my grand kids, I prefer

to tell them crazy made-up tales

about our adventures on the

farm. These quickly became a real

treat, to the point that my wife

encouraged me to write them all

down,” Mr Rodger said.

Special mention was

given to two of Mr Rodger’s

grandchildren, William, 8, and

Valentina, 5, who lost their

mother Nina [Mr Rodger’s

daughter in-law] to cancer earlier

this year. Her heartbreaking

battle with the disease was

covered in Selwyn Times.

Once they were written, his

family suggested the next logical

step was to enlist the help of local

illustrator Rebecca Gibbs, then

try to publish his stories.

But the publishers weren’t

interested. Undeterred, Mr

Rodger self-published 100 copies

at a time, then took his books to

the big distributors.

“They said the same thing

PUBLISHED: Hororata author Bill Rodger with his grandchildren

Valentina, 5, and William, 8. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

though: ‘Nice books, no market’.”

But Mr Rodger was hearing

something different – school

teachers and principals urged

him to keep writing. It then

became his mission to identify

an organisation with a record for

caring. “And I remembered New

World’s Little Gardens [vegetable

and herb grow kit giveaways] and

the massive fun and educational

impact of that, and so for me

to approach New World was an

absolute no-brainer.”

Eventually he won over New

World South Island group

manager Ross Martin via a tough

critic. “I took some of his books

home and gave them to my sevenyear-old

daughter and she loved

them,” said Mr Martin.

“So, we went back to Bill and

started talking, and now we’re

giving away thousands of them

– or 37,800 to be exact – in all 42

New World stores throughout the

South Island.”

•To celebrate the book

series release, New World

shoppers will receive one

of his nine books when they

spend $100 or more.

Lucky escape

for young

motorist

A motorist had a lucky escape

when he lost control of his car and

ended up in a ditch on Ellesmere

Rd near Trices Rd, between

Lincoln and Halswell, late on

Saturday. The man in his 20s, who

escaped without injury, said he

was unfamiliar with the snaking

bend. He was travelling to Lincoln.

Plan to control quarry dust with water criticised

• By Anan Zaki

WATER CANONS and carts

could be used to control dust

emissions at Fulton Hogan’s

proposed quarry near Weedons.

Details on dust and air quality

featured in a 54-page document

presented to Environment

Canterbury and the district

council last week.

The information was provided

after the regional and district

councils requested more details

about Fulton Hogan’s plans to

quarry at a 170ha site bordered

by Curraghs, Dawsons, Jones

and Maddisons Rds.

Weedons quarry

opponent Simon Moore

said using water canons

and carts would be a

waste of water.

Mr Moore is still

against the idea of a

quarry near Weedons and

Templeton.

“They are going to require a

huge amount of water to do that

[mitigate dust],” he said.

Dust from trucks is also

another issue for quarry

opponents.

Mr Moore referred to trucks

Simon

Moore

leaving the Miners Rd

quarry to highlight

concerns over dust from

trucks.

“The issue is when

trucks leave the quarry,

they’ve been water blasted,

and as they go onto the

road, they’re leaving

deposits of dirt on the

road. And as it drives that turns

into dust,” Mr Moore said.

“Thursday morning after a

heavy dew, I was going past

there [Miners Rd quarry] at nine

o’clock in the morning and you

could hardly see the trucks on

the road for the dust coming off

the road,” he said.

Mr Moore said “millions” of

litres of water would be wasted

on dust mitigation if the quarry

is approved.

Fulton Hogan also addressed

questions about traffic to and

from the proposed quarry.

Based on modelling, it said

most of the traffic would

be east-bound to and from

Christchurch.

The $195 million stage two

of the Southern Motorway is

anticipated to carry most of the

traffic.

Who’s taking part in the

It’s the 45th anniversary

of the Star Media

City2Surf. Reporter Anan

Zaki spoke to some of

the participants aiming

to be at the start line on

Sunday

Aaron Cooper, 43

Mr Cooper is set to take part

in his first City2Surf and will do

the 14km race.

“I just want to keep fit and test

the legs on running the distance.”

Mr Cooper plans to run a

half marathon

(21km) – which

is on his bucket

list – and

believes this is a

step towards the

goal.

“It’s the

Aaron Cooper

first time I’m

running 14km.

I’m a surfer,

I’m not really a runner. I used

to play rugby until I was 21 . .

. and, yeah, it [running] is just

something I’ve always wanted to

do,” he said.

Mr Cooper’s wife often takes

part in multi-sport events but

she will greet him at the finish

line as the couple have two young

children.

“When she gets fit, we’ll

definitely be doing other races as

a team,” he said.

David Clark,

29

Taking part in

the 14km event,

Mr Clark is

looking for a new

challenge. It will

be his second

David Clark time entering the

City2Surf.

“It’s just a wee challenge to just

test myself for a bit of fitness,” he

said.

“[The first time] was good. I

want to try something further, I

did the 6km [last year] and want

to try the 14km.”

He has been training hard

for the event and says he will be

ready for the race on March 24.

NEWBIE: Hailey McConchie will be running in her first

City2Surf this year.

“Currently I’m doing it myself

but we’ll see if my partner does it.

That will be just a wait and see.”

Hailey McConchie, 25

The mother of two used to be

focus on body building, but since

having her second child last year,

she’s switched to running.

It will be her first City2Surf.

“I’ve never been a runner.

People who tend to lift weight do

not like cardio whatsoever,” Mrs

McConchie said.

To lose weight after pregnancy,

she took up running. “I’ve lost a

lot of my baby weight . . . I started

an eight-week challenge and lost

about 6kg,” she said.

Getting into running was

difficult.

“At first it felt like a long time

to get running, even that first

kilometre. It felt like ages,” Mrs

McConchie said.

She will be taking part in the

6km event. “Every time I see a

race I just enrol myself and just

build myself in it.”

Mrs McConchie has heard

great things about the City2Surf

but couldn’t take part in it last

year as she had just given birth to

her second child a month before

the event. “I’d like to keep my

running up [this year]. It’s not

something I really enjoy but once

I find my rhythm 2-3km in, that’s

when I can see why some people

are addicted to running,” she

said.

Kelly Clements, 46

Mrs Clements

doesn’t live

far from the

start line near

Centennial Park.

She says the

City2Surf is a

good excuse to

Kelly

Clements

not pay for a gym

membership.

“It’s just my

one thing that makes me head

out and train each year. It’s

not too far being only 14km.

Rather than paying for a gym

membership, I sign up and it

makes me run,” Mrs Clements

said.

This will be her fourth

consecutive City2Surf. “A friend

got me into running and it was

that whole give it a go, it’s a

reasonably flat course and lots of

fun,” she said.

“I’ll be on my own but that

“I haven’t stopped [training]

all year but I probably stepped

up distances in the last six weeks.

There might have been a few 5km

runs but I stepped it up to a few

10km.”

Nory Lansing, 28

Being a personal trainer,

Ms Lansing has many friends

and clients taking part in the

City2Surf.

“I’m a runner

knowing so many runners in the

“I do heaps of running with my

I mention it every week

my running sessions to sign

up and do whatever they can,

Kristyn Ferry and Simon

Bradshaw

Simon Bradshaw, 30

Mr Bradshaw was

convinced by his partner

Kristyn Ferry to take part in

the 14km event.

“She did it last year and

enjoyed it and this year she’s

going to do it again. She said

she’d like me to do it with her

and I said why not.”

“She’s doing it more for a

social, keep fit aspect than it is for

a competitive aspect. So I’ve got

the same kind of idea to be doing

it to keep fit and healthy rather

than making the top 10,” he said.

Mr Bradshaw trains most days.

He has never entered a running

event before.

“I think I’ll be a bit nervous on

the day [of the race]. Just nervous

trying to get to the end,” Mr

Bradshaw said.

Seamus Tredinnick, 30

Running in the 6km event, Mr

Tredinnick, who is a keen sailor,

will be returning

to the event

for the second

consecutive year.

“My wife [Emily]

is a keen runner

and has done a

few marathons

so she’ll be doing

the 14km run,”

he said.

“Basically, at

Seamus

Tredinnick

least if I sign up for an event, it

gives me a bit of motivation to

work towards to getting me out

and running, which is probably a

good thing,” Mr Tredinnick said.

“When you’ve got a peg in

the ground it’s easier to move

towards that goal,” he said.

Mr Tredinnick’s goal is to

finish the event.

group formed

A WORKING group has been

formed to protect the district’s

biodiversity.

The district 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 the 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.

Said district council biodiversity

coordinator Andrew

Spanton: “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 district

council’s significant natural area

programme.

A VOLUNTARY organisation

helping those in need is

celebrating 40 years of service.

Community Care Lincoln was

established with the help of the

Lincoln Rotary Club in 1979

to provide ‘meals on wheels’ in

rural areas.

Former Community Care

chairman and volunteer for 17

years, Pat Nicholas, said the

organisation has about 100

dedicated volunteers and it

couldn’t run without them.

“The things we do, meals on

wheels is a major one we do five

days a week. Delivery meals to

those who are still in their own

homes and are incapable or don’t

have the ability to put together

a good meal to keep them

sustained in their own home,”

Mr Nicholas said.

“Another core value of

Community Care is to keep

people out of hospitals as they

are more happy and comfortable

living in their own homes,” he

said.

Elderly people living alone are

most often in need of help.

“That [elderly care] was the

basis of setting it up. But we’ve

extended into helping families,

young and old, new residents to

Lincoln who are moving in and

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

need to find their way around the

area,” Mr Nicholas said.

The biggest changes since

being set up in 1979 has been its

premises.

When Community Care first

opened, it was run out of a rented

facility on Williams St, Lincoln,

before moving to a purpose-built

facility on Gerald St in 1980.

Community Care then

moved to its current district

council-built facility on

Lyttelton St in 2013.

The organisation has been

largely unaffected by the

population boom in the district,

Mr Nicholas said.

“The biggest challenge has

been to get the word out to the

new people in Lincoln and the

surrounding area that we’re there

to service for them.”

To mark 40 years, Community

Care will hold an open day on

Sunday.

Lincoln Uni’s new basketball coach

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN University’s new

men’s basketball coach Tyla

Harrison-Hunt will have some

familiar faces with him when

the season gets under way next

month.

The 27-year-old former

Aranui academy and Otago

representative, spent last year as

an assistant with South Island

secondary school champions

Cashmere

High School.

He has lured

South Island

finals and

Thomson

Trophy MVP

Nic Wenmoth

Tyla

Harrison-Hunt

to his team, as

well as former

Hillmorton

High School captain Ihaia

Kendrew.

“Making the switch for this

year is the hardest decision I

could have made,” he said.

“Lincoln approached me with

this opportunity and it was a

case of going with my head or

my heart . . . and I went with my

head.”

He said it was great to have

a couple of familiar faces in

Wenmoth and Kendrew on his

squad.

“I want them both to be solid

contributors in whatever role I

give them, ” he said.

Nic is a scorer while Ihaia is an

all-round point guard.

“Whenever you have rookies

on the floor, I just want them to

be solid defenders.”

He said Kendrew’s experience

playing premier basketball and

Wenmoth’s “gritty nature”

would serve them well.

Although there would be more

expectations at Lincoln than

there was at Cashmere, he said

the squad have a youthful look.

“We are a small squad and

quite young,” Harrison-Hunt

said.

“Everyone but one player is

Are you a new business or

organisation in Selwyn?

You need to let people know

who you are, where you are and

how to find you.

also in the under-23 squad.”

He said with a young squad,

he believes he’ll have to go

on the adventure with the

team as opposed to being a

disciplinarian.

“If anything I’ll need to be a

big brother more than that large

coaching figure,” he said.

“We are a guard-heavy team

but that’s okay because I used to

play guard and the systems we

run are similar to what we had

in Otago and the Aranui

academy.”

A COUPLE OF cup cakes helped

Rolleston’s Affinity Gymnastics

Academy purchase equipment

from the 48th artistic world

championships in Doha, Qatar,

last year.

The club, which opened in

October at the Izone, has grown

from 160 members to 330 in just

six months.

One of the main driving forces

behind the club, president Ryan

Jones, said after he was told by a

supplier the equipment used at

the world championships would

be available, he knew it was an

opportunity too good to pass up.

“We bought the competition

floor, which is a 15 x 15, fully

sprung gymnastics floor, we

have a competition beam, the

asymmetric bars and a whole

bunch of matting for competition

landings. The link with the

Freemasons was a weird one

because we were doing a bake

sale last year and this chap came

up and bought a couple of cup

cakes and he engaged me in

conversation about what we were

trying to do.”

“They approached us and

asked us what we’d like their

help with and we said the

asymmetric bars would cost

$2500 and sure enough that’s

what they gave us.”

Confident Leeston-Southbridge ready for final

Bid to win first

one-day title

in six years

LEESTON-Southbridge believe

they have the balance right

to win their first Canterbury

country premier one-day cricket

title in six years on Saturday.

The team will face Southbrook

at Rangiora’s Main Power Oval

after both teams survived tight

semi-finals a fortnight ago.

Both teams finished with the

same eight win, three loss record

during the season, with Leeston-

Southbridge winning the only

45-over encounter between the

two teams by nine wickets on

February 23.

Leeston-Southbridge

captain Chris Beatson said

in spite of having the most

consistent batting line-up in the

competition, their bowlers will

need to execute their plans well

to secure the victory.

“You get less room for error on

a good batting track like Main

Power and equally you have to

take your chances when you get

a loose ball when you’re batting,”

he said.

Leeston-Southbridge have five

batsmen averaging above 25 this

It will be the second time

Prebbleton has sent an under-16

team to the Gold Coast, having

first done it in 2017.

Club vice president Telsa

Buckley said the trip will become a

bi-annual event aimed at keeping

players in rugby.

“For us, it’s a strategy around

how to keep boys interested in

rugby at that age,” she said.

“Two years ago, it was a huge

learning curve for them, but when

they left they were at the bottom

of the Ellesmere competition

and when they came back, the

year and Beatson said their depth

has allowed them to make the

final.

“Everyone has chipped in and

done a role for us this year, where

as the past couple of years we’ve

relied on a couple of guys pretty

heavily,” he said.

Two stand-outs this year with

team bond had changed so much

that they ended up winning the

competition.”

A squad of at least 20 will

depart for the week-long tour on

July 14.

Games against the Helensvale

Hogs and Coomera Crushers have

been confirmed with more likely.

Last year, Prebbleton was part

of a combined under-16 team with

Rolleston due to a lack of numbers

but they have a full squad this

year.

“The hope is that these players

will become under-18 players, colts

players and eventually premier

players in the future.”

Buckley said each player had

to fundraise $2000 but the squad

used it as a way to bond.

The team will be coached

by Mark Buckley who will be

assisted by Jamie Graham and

Jade Britain.

both the bat and ball have been

Ben Chamberlain and Tim

Gruijters.

Chamberlain, who missed

last season through injury, has

scored 388 runs in 16 innings

at an average of 35 and taken 18

wickets at an average of 14.

Gruijters has added 15 wickets

at an average of just under 10.

He’s also scored 232 runs at an

average of 25.

Beatson said his team will need

to avoid being overawed by the

situation and just do their jobs.

“We know Southbrook have a

Stewart in the mix, we know

they’ll have plenty of firepower.”

Southbrook captain Tom

Rodden said they have a squad of

14 who all have the prospect of

playing.

“We’ve got seven guys who can

bowl nine overs, but we have to

look at the size of Main Power

as a ground to make sure our

fielding is up to standard. I’d

have confidence in our

No 11 to go out there with 30

runs still to get. We bat very

deep.”

Opener Matt Brine has stood

out this year. He has scored 372

runs at an average of 28, while

Stewart is averaging 54 in his

seven innings this year.

Rodden said the opening

bowling combination of Luan

Blom and Sam Ermerins is one of

the best in the competition, while

veteran Darryn Boyle who is

approaching 400 wickets for the

club, is a key part of the bowling

attack.

Rodden said his team have

preferred to chase totals this year

but the pitch will decide the best

option at the toss on Saturday.

Local basketball skills

on show

Over 60 keen competitors and supporters participated in Sunday’s highly anticipated Summer

3X3 Basketball Jam, a new event for Summer in Selwyn.

Faringdon Court played host to the event, and everyone both off and on court gave it their all with

great skills, teamwork, three-point shots, blocks and loud cheers of support.

FLAVA radio station joined in the fun bringing a spinning wheel with prizes, commentary, support

and music creating an awesome atmosphere.

Ruby, 10, from Rolleston entered a girls team with a friend and another girl she had never met

prior to this event.

“I love playing basketball and I’m having heaps of fun!” she said.

Supporters enjoyed the close, exciting games which catered for all ages and abilities, with teams

from 10–14 year olds to adults coming from Leeston and Christchurch.

Special thanks to Faringdon who sponsored the event.

Summer in Selwyn is almost over with just a few events remaining for this year. Go to the Summer

in Selwyn Facebook page for information and get down to one of events before time runs out!

Takeaway coffee cups go in the red bin

Disposable takeaway coffee cups go in your red lid rubbish bin.

They are lined with plastic to make them waterproof so your drink doesn’t leak, but

unfortunately this makes them unable to be processed through the recycling plant.

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

‘compostable’ or ‘biodegradable’.

We cannot currently accept these in our composting process.

Better yet, why not get a keep cup?

New public toilets coming to Lincoln Domain

A new toilet block is being installed in Lincoln as part of a planned facilities upgrade.

A new four-pan toilet, currently being installed at Lincoln Domain at a cost of $186,800, replaces the old

toilet facility which was in use for about 30 years. The new toilets are expected to be completed this month.

Council Community Projects Manager Cam Warr says the new Lincoln toilets will provide locals and

visitors with a quality facility.

“The old toilet was a bit old and tired. The new toilets also help to meet the demand of an increasing

number of visitors to the area,” Mr Warr says.

In November 2017, the Council upgraded the toilets at Ryton Bay ($57,625).

“These events do not define us …”

Message from the Mayor

Following the tragic events of last Friday, Mayor Sam Broughton

sent the following message to the ethnic and migrant communities

of Selwyn, and we share it here with the wider district.

Greeting to all our friends in Selwyn’s ethnic communities.

To our Muslim community especially, I extend the deepest sympathy

and support from our Council and on behalf of the wider Selwyn

community.

The events in Christchurch have shocked us all. This incident goes

completely against everything we stand for in New Zealand and

in Selwyn. We are a welcoming place, opening our community

to people of all backgrounds, nationalities, faiths and cultures.

We embrace the diversity and richness you have brought to our

community, and we are all the better for your presence here.

So today we stand and grieve alongside those who are feeling such

deep loss and sadness after this incident.

To all our ethnic and migrant communities, we offer our support

and our reassurance that we will continue to work with you and

alongside you to build communities where you are welcomed and

are safe.

I encourage all Selwyn people to continue to reach out to friends

and family, neighbours and visitors, of all backgrounds and

cultures, and offer the support, warmth and aroha that make our

communities strong.

These events do not define us – it is our love and compassion for

one another in the wake of such events that define us.

Ngā mihi

Sam Broughton, Mayor of Selwyn

Remembrance boards available at libraries

Selwyn residents who would like to leave a message of support

for those affected by the Christchurch mosque shootings, are

invited to do so on one of the Remembrance Boards which have

been set up at Selwyn libraries in Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and

Rolleston, and at the Council offices in Rolleston.

From Russia, via China – and

now a Kiwi

It’s around 10,000 kilometres from Vladivostok, Russia to Lincoln –

and it’s also been a long journey for new New Zealand citizen

Yulia Potts.

Yulia and her daughter Elina, from Russia’s far east, were two of

the Selwyn residents who received New Zealand citizenship at a

ceremony in Rolleston this month.

Yulia and Elina arrived in Canterbury in 2007 – but it was a stop

in China that led them here. Yulia met her future husband, a Kiwi,

during a visit to Beijing 14 years ago. “When he told me he was from

New Zealand I thought that’s just so far away, and nothing would

come of it,” Yulia says. “But in the end we decided – why not?”

The family initially settled in Christchurch, and were buying their

first home when the earthquakes intervened. “So we built a house

in Lincoln, and settled there. We’ve been here about four years, and

we’re absolutely loving it here. I do art classes at home for children,

I’m very much into the community, and we’ve got to know lots of

beautiful people.”

Elina, who attends high school in Christchurch, was born in Russia

and still remembers a bit of what it was like. “It’s very different here,

but I’m enjoying it. I really enjoy the clear air, the weather and places

to walk.”

Yulia says becoming a New Zealand citizen was very special. “It was

a long journey, but it is very, very heartwarming for me,” she says.

recent citizenship ceremony at the Council Chambers.

Island sales manager for The Travel

Corporation, which involved

representing the company’s award

winning travel products to travel agents

and consumers throughout the South

Island, from Invercargill to Nelson,”

Reece says. “By then I’d been in the

industry for a long time and I just felt

the need to challenge myself again.”

In order to forge a new career path,

Reece knew he needed to retrain. “I’ve

always enjoyed working with food and

have had experience in the industry

before so I wanted to brush up on my

skills and seek employment in cookery.”

Reece says he chose to study at Ara

Institute of Canterbury because of its

reputation as a world-class tertiary

training centre. “The cookery school

at Ara has a reputation for preparing

students to a high standard and giving

them the best skills for employment.

They also have great facilities and

inspiring, knowledgeable tutors.”

One of those tutors is Stuart

Goodall, who’s had a hand in

training many students who’ve

gone on to become top chefs,

both here and overseas. “He really

knows his stuff,” Reece says. “He

bestows his knowledge to us in

a very relaxed way that’s easy to

understand.”

While Reece undertakes his

cookery course, he’s getting

to put his training into

practice at Ara’s on-campus

restaurant, Visions. “It’s

great to see how it all works,

from when an order comes

in right through to producing

a saleable product for paying

customers. It’s giving me the skills

and preparation to be ready for

employment.”

Reece is keen to encourage others

– especially those who aren’t happy

in their current career - to follow

his example and study towards a

new career. “Definitely do it,” he

says. “Retraining has prepared

me really well for employment

in this industry.”

Wasps more common

A WASP that has become

increasingly more common

over the last decade or two

is the European tube wasp,

Ancistrocerus gazella.

It established in

Auckland in 1987

from Europe and has

progressively moved

southwards as far as

Southland.

These are potter wasps, a

solitary species that

collect and paralyse as

many as 30 caterpillars and

place them into a tubular

nest which is sealed with

mud.

The caterpillars

are predominately

leafroller species, mostly

horticultural pests, which

are consumed by the wasp

larvae in the single-celled

nest.

Though adults are striped

black and yellow like the

nasty vespula wasps, the

European tube wasp is

much shorter, with an

Beautiful gardens create appeal

A beautifully landscaped lawn and

garden create the finishing touches to the

curb appeal of every home and property.

Figuring out what landscape components

you want in your outdoor area can be

difficult, particularly when there are so

many options but often a fresh eye can give

you a new perspective.

Engaging an expert like Sharon from

Sharon Crofts Landscape Design can

make a huge difference to the look of your

outdoor area, resulting in a garden that

excudes that professional touch.

Sharon covers all aspects of landscape

design from the initial site consultation

to preparing design concepts and

planting proposals, making it easy for the

homeowners to implement themselves if

that want to. If not Sharon Crofts Landscape

Design has a team of experienced and

professional contracts who will complete

the work to exacting standards.

They work throughout Canterbury

including residential properties, rural

and lifestyle blocks and new subdivisions,

particularly in the Selwyn area.

Sharon enjoys working collaboratively

with her clients and transforming initial

plans into reality within budget and on

time. Her many years of experience also

help when it comes to what planting works

in the Canterbury climate and with local

soils.

With the advent of cooler weather it is

prudent to up keep lawn maintenance

such as topdressing and fertilising to boost

new growth.

If you are thinking of creating a new area

within your garden new plants will make

better progress now that the hot summer

months are over and, if planted now,

they will make some good growth during

autumn.

It is also a good time to think about

plants that may not be in the right position.

They could be wrenched in autumn (dug

around) and uplifted during the winter

months.

“Of course not all plants are keen on this

so it is best to get some professional advice

on which plants may or may not easily

shift,” says Sharon.

Whether your landscape project is

small or large give Sharon a call at

Putting the heat on for winter

Heatstore originated in Rolleston in

the late 1990’s relocating to Sockburn in

2007 enabling the business to become the

successful retailer it is today. Many staff are

“westies” and maintain close connections

with the community.

Director Trevor Hale and Installation

Manager Shannon Dunnett grew up in

Selwyn and are “stalwarts” of the West

Melton Rugby Club. Shannon is also a

handy Weedons club cricketer.

“These clubs have proven invaluable as a

source of fit country lads who have become

valuable, longstanding employees,” says Jill

Ineson, Showroom Manager.

Several Heatstore staff have racing

connections. Co-director Wendy Mills is a

racehorse owner, sponsor and supporter of

the Canterbury Jockey Club.

Joint Directors Wendy and Trevor

recently stepped back from running

Heatstore to focus on their Pellet Fire

Solutions Company importing the

Blaze King, Ravelli and Enviro brands

directly from the Canadian and Italian

manufacturers to supply a nationwide

network. They are about to relocate from

the present warehouse into a newly owned

and purpose-built facility in the Rolleston

I-Port Industrial Park.

“The buck stops with Heatstore,” says

Jill. “If you’re after a new fire we’ll assist

you with selecting the model best suited

to your home, our own installers will fit it

and ensure that you receive full after sales

support and service.”

Heatstore stocks the “best of the best”

log and pellet fire options available in New

Zealand from Blaze King, Masport, Nectre,

Pyroclassic, Woodsman, Ferva and Bionic

log fires plus Ravelli and Enviro wood

pellet fires that are whisper quiet and WiFi

compatible.

Blaze King fires are exclusive to Heatstore

in Christchurch and are a real success story.

They burn approximately 30 per cent less

wood than a conventional fire, will burn

24/7 if necessary and are classified as Ultra

Low Emission Burning.

The most important feature and real

point of difference is the thermostat which

enables the fire to produce controlled, even

heat all day and night long.

Backyard seasonal maintenance:

Gardening tools

Yes, it’s getting near that time of the year

again. Autumn is coming so its time to

start thinking about your end of summer

clean up starting with your gardening tools.

There’s just enough time to get them sorted

before you’re swamped with all those

autumn leaves and find yourself spending

all your time on the end of a rake.

Keeping your gardening tools clean and

in tip-top shape means a much happier time

spent in the gardening. As with all tools, for

longevity, it pays to keep them under cover

when not in use – in the garden shed or

garage.

Wheelbarrow

Often referred to as the workhorse of

the garden, the wheelbarrow makes light

work of heavy and cumbersome jobs such

as moving soil, mulch, rocks, and plants. A

good solid wheelbarrow looked after and

well maintained can last in your garden

shed for many years.

Always hose your wheelbarrow down

after a particularly dirty job to prevent the

barrow or bucket from rusting. Try not to

leave a full wheelbarrow out in the rain for

days, as this can accelerate the rust; instead

empty the wheelbarrow as soon as possible.

To keep the wheel in good working order,

give the axle bearings a squirt with the grease

gun. Check the tyre regularly as a deflated

tyre will make using the wheelbarrow hard

work. To maintain pressure, make sure it is

kept inflated – use an old bicycle pump or

an electric pressure pump.

Lawnmower

Regular cleaning after each use will

help keep your lawnmower in good

mowing condition. Always make sure

the lawnmower is turned off (you could

remove the spark plug to be extra safe) or

unplugged (if electric) before you begin to

clean it. Use a stiff brush (a hearth brush

with a handle works well) to clean off any

freshly mown grass and clumps of dried

grass and dirt.

Carefully turn the lawnmower on to its

side and hose off, with a fine jet of water,

the remaining grass and dirt – make sure

you get into any hidden crevices. Use gloves

if you need to use your hands to remove

any clumps and take special care around

the sharp blades. A light spray of cooking

oil may help stop grass clinging on to your

blades.

Always keep the blades sharp for a good

cut; blunt blades tend to rip the grass with a

resulting bedraggled finish.

Garden tools

This is a good time to clean, disinfect and

sharpen those gardening tools.

To clean, use one tablespoon of

dishwashing liquid to one bucket of hot

water. Soak garden tools for 2-3 minutes,

and then scrub lightly with a brush to

loosen and remove any solid soil and plant

matter. For secateurs, scour the blades

lightly with an abrasive pad using long slow

strokes. Rinse thoroughly in warm water.

Dry with a soft cloth and then leave to air

dry for 5-10 minutes. To prevent rust, use

a cloth dipped in vegetable oil and spray

lubricant.

To disinfect between uses on different

plant species, use one part household

bleach, or tea tree oil, to 10 parts water. Dip

secateurs, trowels, etc. into the solution for

around 30 seconds. Rinse clean with water

and allow to air dry or use a soft cloth to

dry.

To keep your tools sharp all year round

take your tools to a tool-sharpening

specialist for a professional finish.

Perfect time for

that new pool

It is the perfect time for Selwyn home

owners to be considering installing a pool

in their back garden with Lagoon Pools.

The company, owned by Julie and

Warren Hastings, has some special offers

to encourage winter installs before end of

July 2019.

“Winter is an ideal time for installation

and allows for plenty of time for finishing

work and landscaping rather than waiting

until closer to summer which is always

our busiest time,” says Julie.

Lagoon Pools installs pools in sizes

to suit both large and small sections,

ranging from three metres to 12 metres

in length with a variety of widths, colours

and shapes.

“While large pools are great for bigger

spaces, small pools in small spaces are

ideal for exercise and relaxation.”

Lagoon Pools is the Leisure Pools

dealer for the South Island featuring

100% composite fibre glass and, with

patented innovations, every swimming

pool is supported by Leisure Pools’

lifetime structural warranty and a lifetime

structural osmosis warranty.

Additional features including pool

lighting and fountains can enhance

the pool area transforming it into an

extended living space where family and

friends can relax in the outdoors, Julie

says.

It takes around five days to install a pool

and the finishing touches can take four to

eight weeks depending upon the design.

Not only does Lagoon Pools install the

pool, they can offer the complete package

including the additional features.

“It is always very satisfying to see

a project through from concept to

installation, turning a vision into reality

for our many customers.”

For more information about Lagoon

Pools and the out-of-season offers

contact Julie or Warren Hastings by

phoning 0800 927 282 or 349 2160.

Saving time, money

and water on your

irrigation needs

Now the hot days of summer are almost

over, it is a great time to think about

upgrading your watering system to some

of the latest cost effective and easy to use

automated options, according to Phil

Hudson from locally owned company

Freeman Irrigation.

The latest technology comes into play

with automated WiFi – the sprinklers can

be connected to weather station forecasts

so if rain is expected the amount of water

is reduced.

Automatic systems save water by

irrigation at the correct time of day,

minimising evaporation.

Being able to operate your system

remotely also means you can adjust the

flow at any time to suit the conditions,

saving water and money and a built-in

water system not only adds value to your

property but they also work while you are

way on holiday.

“We have a range of smartphone

controllers and rain sensors that can be

fitted to most systems, allowing to have

easy control from anywhere. If you want

to save money and conserve water a good

rain sensor is an affordable solution,” says

Phil.

Heading into the cooler months is also

a great time for maintenance on your

irrigation systems after the hot summer.

Some of the basic problems include clogged

sprinklers; leaking sprinklers and valves;

obstructed sprinklers; leaking/blocked

solenoid valves; overspray onto footpaths,

streets or buildings; design problems;

missing nozzles or pipe leaks and breaks.

Freeman Irrigation has a range of

irrigation services, not just for residential

homes but also parks, golf courses,

horticultural and viticultural properties,

sub-divisions and commercial properties.

You can visit Phil and the Freeman

Irrigation team at the Canterbury Home

Show from Friday 22 to Sunday 24 March

2019 at Horncastle Arena.

Go to the Malvern Show

This year is the 120th Malvern Show that

is being held at Sheffield on Saturday 23

March with a theme of ‘What is great about

Malvern?’.

To commemorate their 120th year

two special medals and sashes are being

awarded – one to the Supreme Livestock

Exhibit and one to the Supreme Indoor

Exhibit.

There will be something for everyone

including craft and clothing stalls, ringside

entertainment, a huge range of food options

and live music including the NZ Army

Band who will play two mini concerts.

They will also have a display and set up an

obstacle course for the older children.

Other entertainment includes the

Ellesmere Pipe Band and the Sheffield

School Kapa Haka Group along with

Pedalmania and the Dog Race.

If the public are bringing their dog for

the dog race (or any other dog events at the

show), the dogs have to have been dosed

with a praziquantel drug for sheep measles

at least 48 hours or one month prior to

the show, evidence of this will need to be

shown at the gate before entry is allowed.

Wood chopping, a stock and station

horse competition and speed shearing are

also happening this year along with some

novelty events including the Ride n Rev

and the Three Bar Event.

Ride and Rev is a one or two person event

where one competitor will jump a horse

around a show jumping course then tag the

team member who will sack jump over to

a waiting vehicle and they will then drive

it through an obstacle course to the finish

line. The event will be timed with time

faults given for refusals, rails down and

cones knocked over. And the fastest time

wins.

Also for the horses is the Brickwall

jumping competition which starts at 70cm

and will gradually increase until the last

brick in the wall is knocked over. Entries

are $10 on the day with an awesome prize

of $500.

your compost bin and you

will make your plants very

happy. Marilyn Wightman

reports

THESE HERBS are well-known

for enhancing the compost

bin process. All provide trace

minerals they absorb when

growing. With the exception of

comfrey, which is available as a

plant, all the rest can be grown

from seed.

CHAMOMILE

Either the annual German

chamomile (matricaria

chamomilla) or the perennial

Roman chamomile )

chamaemelum nobile, syn.

anthemis nobilis) can be grown.

After peak flowering time, trim

the herbs back and add the fine,

feathery foliage to the compost

bin.

COMFREY

This herb (Symphytum

officinale) is loaded with

minerals extracted from

the soil – calcium, potassium,

phosphorus, iron, magnesium,

sulphur, copper and zinc.

Comfrey leaves can be picked

all summer and allowed to wilt

for two days before adding to

the bin. As comfrey grows in

one patch and readily regrows

from any broken stem or root, it

needs a dedicated area where it

can flourish.

DANDELION (above)

Taraxacum officinale contains

good levels of potassium, iron

and copper. If unwanted in the

garden, it can be recycled into

compost.

NETTLE

Urtica dioica is known to

have high levels of calcium and

potassium salts, silicic acid

and iron. This valuable herb

can be cultivated in the garden,

preferring dappled shade to

flourish, or it can be

harvested from a waste

area where it commonly

grows under trees. Make

sure good thick gloves

are worn to harvest the

plants, as the high silica

content in the leaf and

stem hairs give a sharp

sting to bare skin.

VALERIAN

Valeriana officinalis

grows up to 2m in

summer. Chop down

the spent growth in

autumn and place in the

bin. It has magnesium,

potassium and copper,

along with small amounts of

lead and zinc.

YARROW

Absorbing manganese,

copper, potassium, iron and

iodine from the soil, achillea

millefolium is regarded by

some as the best compost herb.

Pick bunches from the garden

or waste area and allow to wilt

first before adding to the bin.

Yarrow grows from suckers that

will colonise an area quickly.

The red yarrow is the preferred

medicinal variety. Flowering

most of summer, cut back to

the base in autumn and put the

waste into the bin.

Garlic – the ideal

companion plant

WE ALL know garlic wards off

vampires, but did you know it

also keeps away aphids, apple

scab, leaf-curl and mosquitoes?

Crush a few cloves, soak in a

litre of water for a couple of days

and use as a spray to keep at bay

ants, spiders, caterpillars and

cabbage and tomato worms too.

And, did you also know, it’s

said to provide many health

benefits I’m not qualified to list?

To put it simply, garlic’s right

up there with marigolds as the

companion plant every garden

should have.

And this month, specifically

the shortest day of the year – 21

June, is the time to plant it.

Look for a well-drained spot

– pots, hanging baskets or any

Fire rages, homes at risk

available space in your raised

garden will suit.

If you’re growing it for its

guardian capabilities, plant it

next to your roses to ward off

aphids, beneath apple and peach

trees to prevent apple scab

and leaf-curl, and next to your

tomatoes to protect against red

spider.

Dig in some compost, and

nitrophoska blue fertiliser or use

a potting mix if you’re planting

in baskets or pots.

Plant single cloves twice

the depth of the actual clove,

compost over the top and don’t

fill in with soil.

Then harvest on the longest

day of the year – 21 December.

It’s as easy as that.

Priced to sell!

My vendors are keen to move on to the next

project and have priced this property to sell, so

you definitely need to put this stunning property

at the top of your list to view!

With the mix of cedar and brick cladding this

property has striking street appeal and certainly

doesn’t disappoint.

The large open plan kitchen dining living area is

light and bright and captures lots of sun. There

is great bench space and a large walk in pantry.

The separate lounge is another great room to

host guests, or use for the kids to spread out in.

With fantastic double stackers leading off both

living areas out to the sun-baked patio area

and manageable back yard, great for both the

summer barbecues or for kicking the soccer ball

around.
