Big night for Waihora rugby at Canty Sports Awards

• By Jacob Page

WAIHORA’S bulging trophy

cabinet now contains another

prestigious accolade.

The rugby club was named

sports club of the year at the

Canterbury Sports Awards on

Friday night at the Air Force

Museum of New Zealand.

Waihora’s division one team

dominated Canterbury country

rugby last year, winning the

combined competition and the

Ellesmere title, as well as the

Murray Cooper Shield. They lost

just two games all season.

New clubrooms were also

built at Waihora and the club’s

junior numbers are increasing.

Waihora Rugby Club

president Mike Dixon said

winning the award was “a huge

thrill.” •Turn to page 20

• By Anan Zaki

YOUTH CRIME is on the rise in

Rolleston.

Police said for the past two

months officers have been dealing

with a “wave” of young offenders.

The latest statistics also

confirmed the number of youth

offenders increased in the town

over the course of last year.

However, the police figures

showed in Arthur’s Pass, Darfield,

Leeston and Lincoln, youth

offending remained low, with all

stations combined recording 15

unique youth offenders, less than

half of Rolleston.

Sergeant Alex Pickover has

witnessed the steady rise in youth

offending, which includes theft,

intimidation and vandalism.

“They have come to our

attention mainly for anti-social

behaviour, some of them have

been sleeping rough in the toilets

in the parks, some have done

minor shoplifting,” he said.

SELWYN TIMES

WAIHORA’S NOD at the Canterbury Sports Awards

(see page 1) was not only an indication of their achievements

in 2018, but also the rise of country rugby.

The club was more than deserving of the club of the year

award after winning the combined country competition,

Ellesmere title, and the Murray Cooper Shield.

Success has also come off the field, most notably in their

impressive new clubroom facilities, which would be the envy

of any club around the country.

With the recent news of the demise of the annual Craw

Shield fixture between Canterbury Country and Canterbury

Metro, it was nice to see Waihora show us a great example of

how country rugby is well and truly alive.

Rolleston in midst of youth crime wave

•From page 1

The crimes were often

committed out of boredom and

the ages of those involved ranged

from 13 to 18, Sergeant Pickover

said.

“For example [two weeks ago]

a group of youths decided it

would be fun to throw rocks at

somebody’s boat,” he said.

“Some of

them are

hanging around

the community

centre,

intimidating

the staff who

work there.”

Another

Bruce Ward

teenager stole

a bike from

Rolleston College early last

month, he said.

A number youths have been

referred to Youth Aid and

trespassed from district council

properties, Sergeant Pickover

said.

Over the past month, police

have put increasing pressure on

troublesome youths in Rolleston.

“If they’re riding bicycles

without helmets, they’re

getting tickets. If they’re found

wandering around the streets at

night, they’re being removed and

taken home,” Sergeant Pickover

TROUBLE: Rolleston is experiencing a “wave” of youth crime,

say police.

said. The main concern is that

petty crimes could lead to more

serious crimes.

“We’re trying to get on top

of them now and I think we’re

getting there and getting good

results,” he said.

Selwyn Youth Aid Senior

Constable Bruce Ward said he

met with five families last week

about their children causing

trouble in Rolleston.

Two youths have been moved

out of the area by their families

but the problem is not over, said

Senior Constable Ward.

Cannabis use is another part of

the problem.

“There’s quite a bit of cannabis

around and that’s causing some

issues,” he said.

“In the last three weeks, 10

youths I’ve dealt with, all of them

have used cannabis.”

He wants to address issues of

teenage boredom in Rolleston.

“One thing I would like to do

is meet with the district council

and some youth networks and

see what we can do with this. It’s

not an easy one to solve,” Senior

Constable Ward said.

It’s not the first time Rolleston

has gone through a wave of youth

crime, Sergeant Pickover said.

“Every couple of years we’ll

have a new group of youths that

come to notice and then it dies

down and then we get another

wave that comes up,” he said.

“That’s always been the case

out here in Rolleston.”

The crime wave is concentrated

in Rolleston and hasn’t spread to

other parts of the district.

Said Sergeant Pickover: “What

parents need to realise is, are

you aware where your child is

and what they are doing at 10

o’clock at night or two in the

morning?”

“Some of these kids are leaving

home, climbing out of the

window whilst mum and dad are

asleep, or they’re going out saying

they’re going somewhere else.

But do the parents know who

they’re going with or what they’re

doing?”

Economic growth continues

• By Anan Zaki

STRONG consumer and

tourism spending has

contributed to another year of

economic growth in the district.

In the latest Infometrics Quarterly

Economic Monitor report

released by the district council

last month, gross domestic

product growth was at 5.4 per

cent, compared to the national

average of 2.7 per cent.

The report

covered the 12

month period

to December

2018.

One winner

was the tourism

sector –

with spending

Michael Oakley

growing at

$112.9 million.

This was a 14.2 per cent

increase from $98.9 million in

2017.

Ballooning Canterbury

co-founder Michael Oakley believed

the tourism spending was

higher than the reported $112.9

million as every transaction

could not be tracked.

In spite of a strong 2018 overall,

the Hororata-based business

endured a difficult end of year,

Mr Oakley said.

“We had a very tough November

[and] December because of

the weather. January was about

right and February was probably

our biggest month ever,” he said.

Mr Oakley believed better

weather contributed to the

turnaround over late summer.

Successful marketing also

played a role in a good 2018.

“Our business is growing

and we’re making a name for

ourselves now and we’re getting

a natural increase,” Mr Oakley

said.

The number of guest nights

increased to 85,011 from 80,005

in 2017.

Selwyn Business Group

Founder Clint Ward said business

confidence is high.

Consumer spending increased

by 14.4 per cent across the

district.

In the 12 months to last December,

consumer spending was

at $93.9 million – compared to

$85.2 million the year before.

“It’s very positive. There’s a lot

of people trying out new ideas, a

lot of positive energy out there,”

Mr Ward said.

However, consumer activity

has “quietened” due to the end

of the financial year, he said.

Businesses have also been

happy to spend money to grow,

SOARING:

The tourism

sector has

which has contributed to the

rise.

Population growth was an

easy option to highlight growth

but more and more people are

confident to spend in Selwyn

said Mr Ward – who has been in

the district for about 20 years.

“It’s [the district] the place

to be. With the advent of the

motorway it’s [Rolleston] just

going to be the town of the

future.”

“It does give confidence that

there is a future,” Mr Ward said.

House sales grew by 11.9 per

cent to 957 sales, compared to

855 in 2017.

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Anan Zaki

AN APPETITE for theatre

is bringing more shows to

Rolleston.

On the back of its successful

inaugural show Joseph in November,

theatre group CentreStage

Rolleston has finalised the cast

for its next

show, Peter Pan

Jr.

The mid July

show is one

of two shows

planned by

the volunteer

Courtney Hyde

theatre group

this year.

CentreStage

production manager Courtney

Hyde said about 100 children

aged eight to 18 auditioned for

Peter Pan early last month.

The final 37 were announced

last Tuesday.

“The fact we got 100 children

auditioning shows there’s a massive

appetite for it [theatre],” Ms

Hyde said.

Now the children and production

crew will get busy rehearsing.

“It’s a massive amount of work.

Basically the rehearsals are for

11 weeks, and we rehearse initially

six hours a week. Halfway

through we will be eight hours a

week then come production week

SUCCESS: The cast from CentreStage Rolleston’s first ever

show, Joseph. The theatre group said it was a massive success. ​

we’ll rehearse every day for hours

and hours,” Ms Hyde said.

After the success of Joseph, Ms

Hyde said the group knew it had

the “right formula.”

“There’s already some like the

Kirwee Players which a lot of us

are involved with and its been going

for 43 years,” Ms Hyde said.

“But with Rolleston growing

so big, we saw a big gap there

and that’s why we decided to do

something.”

The theatre group’s third show

– and second of 2019, Beauty and

the Beast will be held in November.

“This year we intend on doing

the two [shows]. Next year we’re

looking at three and from there

we hope to go even further,” Ms

Hyde said.

“We all do it because we love

it and I’ve been doing the youth

stuff for a few years with other

societies,” she said.

Theatre is great for children and

to watch them learn was the “coolest

satisfaction” Ms Hyde said.

“But also with youth programmes,

its about increasing

our pool of talent.”

•Peter Pan Jr will be held

between July 12 and 14 at

Lincoln High School. For

The student-led event was a

“massive hit” with residents, the

university said.

Said Lincoln University

Students’ Association president

Kirsty Havill: “There were a lot

of families who came along, and

kids of all ages. The petting zoo,

which included a pony, was especially

popular and huge crowds

showed up for the sheep shearing

Gymnasts soaring to new heights

• By Anan Zaki

AN NATIONAL standard

trampoline is propelling the next

generation of gymnasts in the

district.

West Melton Gymnastics

Club has been welcoming its

students to

the $30,000

trampoline

this term

at its iZone

gymnasium.

Gymnastics

club head

coach Pam

Pam Higgins

Higgins said

opening the

trampoline

for use has been a long time coming.

It is also the only national

competition standard trampoline

in the district.

“We had always intended to

do trampolining when we could

get into a venue of our own.

We’ve been pursuing that for

a while, trying to work with

council in building on the reserve

[domain] at West Melton because

that was our home base,” she

said.

But the club could not secure

a venue in West Melton, so it

shifted to iZone in Rolleston in

term four last year.

“It’s a FIG [Federation

Internationale de Gymnastique]

approved trampoline . . . it

can be used for national level

trampolining although at this

present time we’re working on

recreational,” Mrs Higgins.

But the move felt like starting

from scratch.

“Kids are only just learning

how to do trampolining and how

to use it so it’s quite a process,”

Mrs Higgins said.

The club purchased the trampoline

just after Christmas, but

hasn’t been able to make it available

for use until the start of the

school term.

“All the kids flock to it all the

time. It’s a real hit. But of course,

one of the hard bits is trying

to separate trampolining from

gymnastics because they all

want to use the trampoline,” Mrs

Higgins said.

Lincoln to host

hypnotist show

Peter Powers

ONE OF the world’s most

successful hypnotists will

perform in Lincoln.

Peter Powers’ live stage

shows draw big crowds in each

of the countries where he performs.

Now those in the district will

have an opportunity

to

see the British

performer one

night only in

Lincoln on June

22.

The announcement

of the Powers

show comes

after the “successful” Selwyn

Sounds 2019 One Day Music

Event – the third year the event

has been held at the Lincoln

Domain.

The hypnotist show is run by

3CG Events – which owns Live

in Lincoln. It said it is committed

to bringing quality entertainment

to the district.

Referred to as “a comedy genius,”

“a hypnotist without equal”

and “the best in the business,”

Powers delights in the antics of

his hapless volunteers almost as

much as his audiences.

Although the observer experiences

a rollercoaster ride, on the

very edge of what could be considered

sane and proper, Powers

manages to give an ample

glimpse of potential danger and

mind-manipulation gone-wrong

while impossibly striking the

balance of not taking hypnosis

too far.

As well as displaying his skillful

stagecraft in venues around

the world, Powers has starred

in and presented 60 of his own

television shows in five different

countries.

These have been broadcast

in more than 30 countries

worldwide. He writes and creates

unique formats for broadcast in

a wide spectrum of genre and

devotes much time to his pursuit

of knowledge and practice in

the field of hypnosis for selfimprovement,

behavioural

modification, extra-ordinary

perception, altered states of

consciousness and the control of

chronic pain.

will perform on June 22 at

Crashing the stage

A FEW columns back I boldly

claimed we would be working

towards getting Vittoria back into

sleeping in the cot.

Guess how many times she’s

slept in the cot since then?

Once and it was a nap. Oh well,

I guess being woken up by being

kicked in the head is my life still.

Anyway, on Monday I took

Vittoria to a kid’s music show at

The Piano. I’d never been there

before and the only other show

by Cubbin Theatre I’d been to

was in an enclosed room.

Seeing the setting for this show

was a little bit of a shock.

Vittoria is so full on these days

that the high stairs, easy to access

stage, live band and other kids all

around made me sure something

would go wrong. Don’t get me

wrong, it’s the perfect setting for

what was a great show. I was just

worried it was not the perfect

setting for Vittoria.

In the intense glare of my

own imagined spotlight, I could

already see the scathing glares of

the mums as she fell over on the

stairs or grabbed an instrument

off the stage.

I grabbed our seats, put the

nappy bag down then stood up

and followed Vittoria up the

stairs. Then down the stairs. Then

up the stairs.

When the music started

LIMELIGHT: Vittoria makes

an unexpected stage

debut with the members of

Cubbin Theatre.

Vittoria was happy dancing along

and slowly climbed down the

stairs to boogie in front of the

stage.

Suddenly she made her move

on the stage. My nightmare was

VITTORIA

& Matt

coming true. I grabbed her three

times before she decided we

would go to the top of the stairs

to dance.

Once she’d got me into a false

sense of security, she rushed

to the other side of the theatre

(somehow collecting a pretzel on

the way) and down the stairs.

Before I could get to her she

was on the stage.

Oh God. Sweat is beading on

my forehead. My mind races with

thoughts of the audience judging

me. Vittoria ran to the back,

waved at one musician came

back to the front to play with

something on the stage and then

ran off to the other side where I

managed to grab her.

She didn’t touch any

instruments or get me into

trouble, so all good.

Bring on the next show.

TWO WEEKS ago I found a

small green crab spider in the

garden known as Diaea ambara.

These spiders are called crab

spiders as their two pairs of front

legs are larger than their rear legs

and curve forward.

Their ability to move sideways

and backwards is also similar to

crabs. They are also called flower

spiders as they often found in

flowers and ambush insects

coming for a feed of nectar or

pollen.

The species appears to be able

to change its colour to camouflage

itself to aid its predatory

nature.

These spiders are small, approximately

4-8 mm long, are

found on foliage and flowers in

open habitats, are widespread

around New Zealand and are

endemic.

ADMISSION

16 th ANNUAL

ART EXHIBITION 2019

Fri 5th April 7.30pm-9pm, Sat 6th & Sun 7th April, 10am-4pm

Rolleston Community Centre

The successful and fun Annual Arts Heart Exhibition

of Selwyn Arts & Crafts is again being held at the

Rolleston Community Centre the weekend of 6,7

April for the 16th time. This year there are even

more artists showing their works.

For three years in a row, the winner of the People’s

Choice Award has been Jennifer Stebbings. The

committee are looking forward to see if she can win

again this year with one of her five works. There

are too many artists to name, but Mike Glover,

Canterbury’s famous and recognisable pastel artist,

has work available as does Henry Turner.

Henry has entered since he was 12 and this year

will be his eighth consecutive year showing at the

Community Centre. The late Margaret McFedries,

founding member of Arts Heart, saw his talent and

provided the initial encouragement. Henry is going

from strength to strength with his own exhibitions

and representation in galleries. This year he had a

work selected for the prestigious NZ Printmaking

and Painting Award.

Henry has always been a bird lover with a natural

talent to capture their beauty. Many say that it is

the eyes that give life and soul to the work. Recent

works with gold paint and distinctive, bold colours

capture the essence of an emotion or place with

many ideas and places bth real and imaginary

being painted in gouache. The Honorable Amy

Adams appreciated his skills when she purchased

one of his works several years ago. He was talent

spotted by a Selwyn Gallery Committee Member

at this exhibition too and this lead to a shared

and a solo show there. So the exhibition is

a marvellous start for young artists, as it is

equally a chance to for collectors and

art lovers be in early to get their work at

a reasonable price. As the commission

is only 15%, many artists find they can

provide work at a great price for the

public. Be sure to drop in and have

a look in the weekend, $2 entry,

children free.

and the railway station that

was built near Jones Rd in

1866.

However, more recently

the focal points of Weedons

have become the primary

Rd, the golf club and the

domain.

The Weedons Domain

came about through the

Canterbury Provincial

Government setting aside

58½ acres of land in 1876

as a recreation reserve at its

current location between

Maddisons and McClellands

Rds. Ten acres of the

reserve was set aside for a

cemetery, but the land was

never used as such.

At this time the reserve

came under the control

of the Courtenay Roads

Board (precursor to the

later county and district

councils), which appointed

a committee of

local residents, known as

the Weedons Cemetery

and Recreation Board, to

administer the land on

behalf of the community.

The domain has been administered

under the same

system until the present

day.

The continued input of

local families has ensured

the domain has remained

an important focal point

for the community.

This is a collection of recent work from Llew, half of which has not been

initially carved in wood or marble and are from editions of seven.

and hand print them in different

colours and compositions to make

a resurgence of natural materials

such as harakeke into everyday use,

and for us to continue to innovate

questions about how we see

point of Weedons community

Our Great

history

WITH WAYNE STACK

Some family names have been

prevalent since the Weedons Domain

Board was first established

in 1889 (replacing the old board),

with none more so than the Curragh

family.

Robert and Eleanor Curragh

migrated from Ireland in 1860

and purchased farmland on what

became Curraghs Rd where they

built a sod cottage, one of the

earliest houses in the area. Robert

was a member of the first domain

committee and one of his seven

sons, Henry Curragh, later served

on the committee for over 60

years. Henry’s son, Jim, followed

in the family tradition and was a

committee member for 52 years;

many of those years serving as

chair. Remarkably, there had

been a Curragh serving on the

domain committee for 120 years

when Jim retired in 2009.

Initially the domain was rough

tussock land that was used for

planting trees that were grown

to use as fence posts which were

sold to local residents. The land

was also leased out to farmers

within the area who planted various

crops that helped to keep the

land under control.

Cricket has remained the main

sport played on the domain. The

140 year old Weedons Cricket

Club was founded in 1879 and

cricket has been played continuously

on the reserve ever since;

making it one of the oldest

cricket venues still to be used in

the New Zealand.

The Weedons Cricket Club has

been pivotal in the cultural and

social development of the area.

This has seen a number of generations

of families playing for

the club, with the most prevalent

example being the Chatterton

family who have been associated

with the club since the early

20-century until present.

The club is one of the largest

clubs in the Selwyn District and

its future remains promising due

to the strength and numbers of

both its senior and juniors teams.

The Weedons Tennis Club

POPULAR: The Weedons Tennis Club has been long

established at the Weedons Domain.

has also been a long-established

user of the domain, with a tennis

court having been laid on

the domain in the early 1900s.

Tennis proved a popular pastime

for both men and women at this

time, which along with cycling,

provided women with an opportunity

to play sport and be

liberated for a time from their

traditional domestic roles.

The first courts were established

near the original main

entrance off Maddisons Rd, but

new asphalt courts were later

built on their current site near

the domain pavilion.

In May 1955 a special meeting

was held to discuss the building

of a sports pavilion on the domain

to cater for both the cricket

and tennis clubs. However, it was

not until late 1957 that an 850

sq ft concrete block pavilion was

completed at a cost of £1191. The

cost of the build was financed

through locally-raised funds,

a donation from the Domain

Board and a Government grant.

Golf is another sport that

remains an integral feature of

the domain. In 1965 the domain

board passed a resolution that an

area of the domain be set aside

for a golf course to be established

and that approval for this to be

sought from the Commissioner

of Crown Lands.

The following year this led to

the Weedons Country Club being

granted a permit to lease 27 acres

of the domain for a period of 33

years (which has since been extended).

Since that time the golf

club has had land donated by the

Manion family and purchased 30

acres of adjacent farm land to expand

from the original nine-hole

to an 18-hole course.

Over the years the domain has

been used for other activities for

short periods, including a shooting

range for the Weedons Gun

Club in 1910 and the venue for

miniature motorcycle racing in

the early 1950s. During the Second

World War the domain was

used a military training camp

from 1942 to 1945.

Historically, the domain has

played an important part in

providing not only a venue for

local sporting clubs, but also in

establishing a sense of place and

identify for people living in the

Weedons area.

The continued value of the domain

has been recognised by the

Selwyn District Council through

its financing of a new community

pavilion at the domain which will

be officially opened on Friday. It

is intended that the new pavilion

will provide a local venue for

both sporting and community

group events well into the future.

Summer in Selwyn season

“builds community spirit”

Weedons Community Centre open

The Weedons Community Centre will be officially opened on Friday

5 April. Construction of the $830,000 facility began in May 2018 and

was completed in December 2018.

Council Major Projects Property Manager John Reid says the new

Weedons Community Centre will provide a modern facility for the

local community as well as the sports groups who regularly use

the reserve.

“It’s a ‘fit-for-purpose’ facility that recognises the relatively limited

size of the local community, and which will provide the wider

Selwyn region with a small boutique facility available for smaller

functions,” Mr Reid says. “The Weedons Reserve Committee have

worked for many years to replace the old, outdated and damaged

centre. Along with recent upgrades to the tennis and cricket

facilities on the reserve.”

The project has been in the pipeline since 2011 when the first

plans were drawn up, says Weedons Reserve Committee

Chairman Peter Holmes.

“With the many challenges we’ve faced along the way, it’s great to

see the building finally completed. The whole committee has been

heavily involved in the process, while we have had great support

from the staff at the Council,” Mr Holmes says. “This is a community

centre which will be used by the cricket and tennis clubs, but also

by the wider community. This is a great asset for Weedons and one

we should all be proud of.”

The new facility has a multi-purpose room, a kitchen and storeroom,

24 hour accessible toilet and two changing rooms.

Two incredible fetes and a Summer Skate/Scooter Jam in Rolleston rounded out the Council’s

Summer in Selwyn event programme.

The summer has seen Selwyn communities come together at their local reserves, facilities,

pools, skate parks, libraries, halls, schools and basketball courts to enjoy over 60 Council and

community events.

Council events included a Teddy Bears’ Picnic, Summer Skate/Scooter Jams, Outdoor and

Drive-in Family Movies, A Month of Sundays, Pool Parties, Picnics in the Park, Summer 3X3

Basketball Jam, and events at Selwyn Aquatic Centre and Libraries . Some great comments from

The Council’s customer contact line will be operating 24 hours a day over this period for urgent issues,

phone (03) 347 2800.

Stay bright, use your lights!

Daylight Saving ends this weekend at 2am on Sunday 7 April – that

means it’s going to start getting darker, earlier.

Switch your lights on when driving to make sure you’re visible. The

Road Code says you must use your vehicle headlights from 30

minutes after sunset until 30 minutes before sunrise and at any other

time you can’t clearly see a person or vehicle 100 metres away.

Using your lights will greatly increase your chances of seeing and

being seen by other vehicles. We also want to remind cyclists to

have front and rear lights and wear reflective clothing.

It’s important drivers are on the lookout for cyclists, especially when

visibility is poor, around dusk, at dawn and in bad weather.

Selwyn tourism strengthening

Tourism in the Selwyn district continues to grow with increasing

visitor guest nights and spending.

The latest quarterly economic update from analysts Infometrics

showed the Selwyn economy had an increase of 5.4 percent over

the 12 months to December 2018.

A highlight of the update was the continued growth of tourism in the

district, with tourism spending increasing by 14 percent to $113m,

up from $99 million a year ago. *Guest nights are also up by 6.3

percent, or a total of 85,011 nights in the district during the year to

December 2018. This is up from 80,005 a year ago.

Mayor Sam Broughton says this can be attributed to the hard work

of local operators and the Council’s efforts in supporting that work.

“More visitors are seeing our district as a place to stop and enjoy

our unique offerings” Mayor Sam says.

The update also showed the unemployment rate had fallen to 2.1

percent, the lowest in two years.

Electronic card consumer spending in the district increased by 14

percent over the year to December 2018, compared to the previous

year. This is well above the national increase of 4.5 percent.

*A guest night is equivalent to one guest spending one night at an

establishment.

Join a social grade

at Waikirikiri Hockey

WAIKIRIKIRI Hockey says

workmates and other groups

looking for a team-building

activity should join its five-a-side

social league.

The games are played at the

Foster Park Turf in Rolleston on

Wednesday nights during terms

2, 3 and 4.

Waikirikiri Hockey runs two

grades, which cater for both

competitive and social players.

The main focus of the social

hockey grades is to give players

with various skill levels a chance

to play and also feel part of the

community.

Social grade one is for teams

with a bit of a competitive edge

and is ideal for people who have

played before.

Social grade two provides

a fun and healthy activity to

enjoy as a team. It is ideal for

adults who want to give hockey

a go or just want to come back

to the sport after a period of

downtime.

Each team must have a

minimum of one female on the

field at all times.

During term four, Waikirikiri

Hockey also runs junior social

hockey for students and pupils in

years 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8.

SPORT

PLAY: Waikirikiri Hockey

offers social hockey grades.

The young players involved also

get the chance to play with their

friends as they can put their own

team together.

Rolleston College mates get one

over adults on basketball court

• By Jacob Page

A GROUP of year 11 Rolleston

College mates with a passion for

basketball have proven they can

foot it on the court with adults.

In what was preparation for

the secondary school season,

which starts later this month,

the team known as The Raptors

won the silver medal in the

Action Indoor Sports adult

social competition.

Coach Andre Tessarolo said

just making the final was above

their expectations at the start of

the campaign.

“Playing against adults was

initially a big step up for the

boys, not only mentally but

physically,” he said.

“They had to get used to being

bumped around regularly.”

He said the teammates are

all good friends, which made it

easier to pass on his knowledge.

“They’ve been really

committed and we’ve worked

together on the weekends,”

Tessarolo said.

He said his aim was to play

as few minutes as possible and

let the team figure it out as they

played.

“Hopefully it’s the start of

some good results for the boys,”

he said.

DOMINANCE: The Lincoln High School

mixed touch team will attempt to win

their first national title in December after

bringing home their fourth straight South

Island secondary schools’ title.

Lincoln High line up national touch title

• By Jacob Page

THE LINCOLN High School

Turtles will be aiming to turn

South Island dominance into a

national mixed touch rugby title

in December.

The team wrapped up their

fourth straight South Island

secondary schools’ title a

fortnight ago and will now have

to wait nine months to go one

better than their runner-up spot

12 months ago at the nationals

which will be held in Rotorua.

Lincoln High were undefeated

on their way to the South Island

title.

They won six games and outscored

their opponents 55 to 16.

They took home the title after

beating South Otago High School

14-3 in the final.

Caleb McStay and Sophie

Hawkins each notched up 50

games for the team, with McStay

being the top scorer at the

tournament with 12.

Teacher and co-coach Blair

Johnstone said this team have a

genuine chance of bringing home

a national in December.

“In my 12 years involved with

the team, this is probably the best

one I’ve seen and that was evident

with the results on the field,” he

said. “There’s a great sense of

whanau and they all get on well

and they’re all after that common

goal of winning nationals.”

The squad will now disperse

until at least late September

before preparations for nationals

ramp up.

We’ve got rugby boys,

netball girls, football girls,

equestrian and hockey, so our

kids play a lot of different winter

sport and we always let those

sports and coaches have them

during the winter season,”

Johnstone said.

He said the team have

improved at nationals over the

past three years with ninth, fifth

and a second place finishes.

“It’s a four-year cycle and

hopefully this will be our year,”

Johnstone said.

Waihora honoured with

club of the year award

•From page 1

“We pride ourselves

on doing the best we can

for our club, players and

community, so to win it

was great,” Mr Dixon said.

“We’ve got 19 junior

teams and three senior

teams so it’s big for our

whole club.”

He praised division one

coaches Terry Dalton and

Joff Mooar for what the

team achieved last year.

“For Joff and Terry to

try to up-skill and bring

in new players – they’re

the ones that are doing the

hard work and we just try

to run the club,” he said.

Past president Chris

Thornley, who ended

27 years in the role last

September, was also

on hand to soak up the

moment.

Mr Dixon said the award

would have positive effects

across the whole club.

“We had a big coaches

and managers’ meeting

and we asked them all what

it meant (to be part of the

club) and the three things

that came back were fun,

community and family,”

SELWYN UNITED will

travel to face Nelson

Suburbs on Saturday

knowing they let a golden

opportunity slip

in their 3-3 draw

with FC Twenty11.

A 92nd-minute

goal from a

Callum Smith

corner salvaged

a point for FC

Twenty11 and

prevented Selwyn

United from claiming their

second win of the season

in the Mainland Premier

League.

Chris Brown

he said.

Mooar said the

award was a special

moment. “It’s something

that will be in our trophy

cabinet forever and to win

it in a big sporting region

like Canterbury against

great opposition is a great

feeling,” he said.

“What we achieved last

year was special and I

know Terry and I, as well

as the players, take pride in

it,” Mooar said.

Mr Dixon said the

Selwyn United coach

Chris Brown said the team

struggled to click early but

when they fought back to

take a 3-2 lead late in the

second half, he thought

they had got out

of jail. “We felt it

was three points

dropped in the end,”

he said.

“We didn’t play

well at all but credit

to FC Twenty11,

they battled hard

and probably

deserved a point.”

Brown said his team

improved as the game went

on. “We gave up possession

would trickle down to the

younger grades.

“The seniors really enjoy

getting involved with the

junior teams,” he said.

“For the senior team to

go so well, for everyone

to get behind them, even

though we didn’t have

clubrooms for the year

– in fact we didn’t have

changing sheds until a

month into the season and

it was a real team effort to

get them over the line.”

too easily, things seemed

rushed. It wasn’t a work

rate thing, we just couldn’t

put it together.”

Goals to Hami Davey

Brown, Declan Hickford

and substitute Liam

Pledger were all positives.

As was the effort in the

heart of defence by Jack

Allatt. “Once we got the

lead, we tried to manage

the game and defend our

lead instead of trying to

play our game, which cost

us in the end,” Brown said.

Selwyn United Academy

graduate Johnny Simms

made his debut for the

team.

STRONG START: Prebbleton began their centenary season with a 51-24 win over Celtic.

Top country clubs fire

in the first round of

combined competition

• By Jacob Page

THERE WERE few problems

for the heavyweights in the first

round of the combined country

rugby competition on Saturday.

The competition’s

new format sees

the teams split into

three sections, with

the big names of last

year mostly coming

through unscathed in

a round of high scores

and some tight wins

for others.

Defending

champions Waihora

had no trouble

cruising past Ashley

65-0 in their pool A

encounter.

Experienced back Mark

Maitland scored five of the teams

11 unanswered tries at Tai Tapu.

Co-coach Joff Mooar admitted

it was their defensive effort which

earned some early season smiles.

Last year’s beaten Ellesmere

competition finalists, Darfield,

scraped past a fast-finishing

Hampstead 27-26 in Ashburton

to ensure they are in

striking distance in

pool A.

Prebbleton started

their centenary

season with a pool

C win, but needed

a strong second

half to down Celtic

51-24.

The two teams

went in to halftime

all square at 24 all

before Prebbleton

piled on the points

in the second half.

Richard Ferguson and Tim

Murgatroyd each scored twice in

the win.

Burnham-Dunsandel-Irwell

Joff Mooar

suffered a late 30-25 pool A loss

to Southern.

In Pool B, Springston made

easy work of Ohoka 41-0 in

Mandeville with Conner Hamlin

scoring the last two tries.

Southbridge made hard work of

their 24-20 win against Methven.

The visitors had an 18-point

advantage at halftime but we’re

forced to cling on after being

unable to add to their score in the

second half.

In the pool B and C crossover

game, Lincoln accounted for

Rolleston 25-7.

West Melton were no match

for Saracens, losing their pool C

encounter 50-10, while Hornby

suffered a 38-10 pool A loss to

Kaiapoi.

Glenmark-Cheviot downed

Rakaia 31-24 in their pool B

clash, while Oxford overcame

Hurunui 24-20 in a Friday night

pool C match.

SCORE: Waihora utility back Mark Maitland scored five tries in

his team’s 65-0 win over Ashley at Tai Tapu.

Black Commodore at home on racetrack

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

I’M RELUCTANT to turn down

any invitation that involves laps

on a racetrack.

So when Holden New Zealand

asked me if I would like to spend

a morning at Pukekohe Raceway

with other media, and former

race car driver Greg Murphy

in attendance, I jumped at the

opportunity.

The cars we were to drive were

variations of the new ZB-series

Commodore, both four-cylinder

and V6 models, coinciding with

the first anniversary of its launch

here.

To mark the occasion, Holden

has also issued a limited release

Black Edition variant. It has a

special collection of aesthetic

adornments available in just 40

units throughout April, and is

a no-cost option on the sport

liftback models 2-litre and 3.6-

litre V6.

Notably, the pack includes

black facia inserts, black grille

surrounds, black grille wings,

black window surrounds and

Black Edition badging.

The new Commodore lands

here with three engine variations.

There are two four-cylinder

2-litre models, one petrol and

one diesel, and the V6 which

has four-wheel-drive. The

four-cylinder units are both

turbocharged and drive through

the front wheels only.

While the drivelines are vastly

different to what Commodore

owners have previously enjoyed,

there are both wagon and liftback

options along with varying grade

levels. There are 12 models in the

line-up, this evaluation focuses

on the V6 RS-V liftback.

The new European-sourced

Commodore is everything big car

owners will relate to, it is quiet,

comfortable and in V6 form

it is very powerful, although it

took me a while to get my head

around the fact that it is fourwheel-drive

and the engine sits

transversely under the bonnet,

in contrast to its Aussie-built

predecessors which all had

longitudinal configurations.

Developing 235kW and

381Nm, the engine is strong

and delivers with a nice sound,

it isn’t overbearing, but you can

tell it is an angry, feisty unit

which likes to work hard. Of

course, being a large capacity V6

it doesn’t have to hunt towards

the high end of the rev band, it is

hooked to a conventional ninespeed

automatic transmission

HOLDEN COMMODORE BLACK EDITION: Four-wheel-drive

enhances grip for road or track.

that works to keep the revs low,

changing early so that fuel use

is minimised. On that subject,

Holden claim an 8.9l/100km

(32mpg) combined cycle average

for the V6.

The driveline is wonderful, it

is silky smooth in all areas and

provides that large car power

that we have come to expect

from Commodore. At open road

speed, movement is hushed and it

glides over road ripples balanced

and poised.

A lot of the latter is due to

the all-drive system, the new

Commodore feels controlled

and tight in the chassis. Saying

that, the suspension is absorbent,

the spring and damper rates are

biased towards moderate and

the in-cabin ride is glorious. It

also cruises beautifully on the

highway, it has poise, balance and

a high level of comfort.

When pushed into the quick

corners on the Pukekohe track,

surety within the floorpan

provides confidence, there is a

lot of feedback from what the

tyres are doing in relation to

the track surface, and sitting on

high quality sport specification

Continental rubber (245/45 x

18in) there is a lot of natural

grip and directional stability on

offer. And with ‘Murph’ guiding

journalists to the best lines and

apexes, the Commodore does

reflect sporty performance.

A lot of that also has to do

with the development work

Holden Australia did with the

Commodore for the down under

market.

Of course, it is also about

replicating the large car profile we

are used to as buyers, and it does

that brilliantly. Not only is there

a huge area to spread around

inside, there is alsogenerous load

space.

In RS-V specification, the

V6 liftback sits at $58,990. For

• Price – Holden

Commodore RS-V liftback,

$58,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4897mm; width, 1863mm;

automatic

• Performance –

• Fuel usage – 8.9l/100km

that money it comes with a

high degree of specification,

major items include full leather

trim with heated seats, MyLink

infotainment network, head-up

display, paddle-shift transmission

selectors and satellite navigation.

Of course, the new generation

Commodore also qualifies for

a five-star Australasian New

Car Assessment Program safety

rating.

Even though it is different in

many areas, General Motors

has done well to make the new

Commodore feel like what a

buyer would expect from the

nameplate. I’d go as far as to

say it has done that well, it feels

very Commodore-like and it

is a pleasurable drive for all

occupants.

For anyone contemplating a

Commodore purchase and likes

what the Black Edition has to

offer, you had better be quick. It’s

not likely to be a model that will

sit around on showroom floors.

Meeting tough nitrogen

loss rules

Canterbury’s Camden Group has

achieved the 30 per cent reduction in

nitrogen losses required of dairy farms

well before the 2022 deadline, thanks to

changing its repasturing programme and

tweaking fertiliser and irrigation practices.

Brothers Leo and John Donkers started

the Camden Group 25 years ago. They

now own four dairy farms and two support

farms, as well as being involved in sharemilking

businesses on three other farms.

The rapid expansion of dairy farming

in Canterbury has put pressure on the

environment. Farmers must now comply

with increasingly strict regulations to

reduce that impact, particularly the loss of

nitrogen into groundwater.

“We have to change our management

practices to enable us to continue farming

in this environment,” Leo Donkers says.

The Selwyn Waihora water zone

committee signalled five years ago that

tighter controls were coming. The Camden

Group took a hard look at its operation and

environmental performance.

One of the first things they tackled

was pasture, which despite being resown

in high- performing species wasn’t

consistently delivering hoped for pasture

production gains. Part of the problem was

the persistence of low-performing native

pasture species, so they adopted a new twoyear,

double-spray strategy, together with a

change in species and sowing method.

“We sprayed with glyphosate, directdrilled

an annual and sustained that for a

year,” says Leo. “Then at the same time the

following year we re-sprayed, cultivated

and drilled permanent pasture.

“This one pass drilling process involved

drilling perennial ryegrass in normal rows

and then broadcast a tetraploid and white

clover mix between the perennial rows to

get full coverage.”

Previously browntop would come up

between the rows after direct drilling, but

under the new system the inter-row space is

filled by tetraploid grass species and clover.

“The benefit we got was phenomenal

pasture growth,” Leo says. “We grow a lot

more grass than we have ever done in the

past.”

The tetraploid grasses are cool-season

active, which means they soak up nitrogen

Camden Group operations manager

Terry Kilday and Leo Donkers

even when other species’ growth has

slowed.

The success of the programme attracted

the attention of DairyNZ’s Virginia Serra.

She leads the Meeting a Sustainable Future

project which aims to foster changes in

farm systems to reduce nitrogen losses

in the Hinds (Ashburton) and Selwyn

Waihora zones.

Serra says the limits are challenging, but

the sector is committed to helping farmers

achieve them while maintaining resilient

businesses.

“This project builds on previous N-loss

research. It aims to give farmers confidence

the limits are achievable,” says Serra. “Many

farmers have been making changes to

reduce N loss for some time and this will

continue to build on that.”

Camden Holdings’ Willsden Farm at Te

Pirita is now one of two “partner farms” in

the project.

Camden Holdings no longer applies

nitrogen in May because soils get cooler and

pasture plant growth slows, and demand

for N decreases. “The worst time for any

leaching is in autumn and winter. The

unused N from summer has accumulated

in the soil and it gets lost with the winter

rains.”

Most dairy shed effluent is spread over

about 90 ha of pasture, when conditions are

right, using a small spreader, but this year

that area is being doubled. Plans are also in

train to modify the centre pivot so effluent

can be spread from that as well, adding

another 140 ha.

“We should be to be able to do whole farm

over the next two or three years, then we’d

have extremely good spread,” says Camden

Group operations manager Terry Kilday.

When the farm was first converted, it

only had five days’ effluent storage, but now

a significantly larger pond has been put in,

increasing storage to between 10 and 15

days.

Another area getting close attention is

irrigation. Three roto-rainers have been

replaced by centre pivots and set sprinklers

to allow for greater efficiency and a shorter

return, down from 10 days to two to three

days. Three roto-rainers are still used on

140 ha, on a seven, seven and six day return.

The completion of the Central Plains

Water irrigation project, which replaces

water from deep wells with pressurised

water drawn from the Rakaia River, backed

up by storage in Lake Coleridge, has added

to irrigation efficiency.

“We never realised how efficient that

would make us because instead of having a

push-button system where we are pumping

from deep wells and we have all the control,

now we have to order water once a day,”

Leo Donkers says. “So at three o’clock we’ve

got to make an order for tomorrow which

means we need to know where the water is

going and how much we need.”

Soil moisture probes are used

as a tool to make the correct

decision about when to irrigate.

Achieving a 30 per cent

reduction in nitrate leaching –

and remaining profitable - has

been done without big changes

to Willsden’s farming. Terry

Kilday is proud of what they’ve

achieved.

“We’re looking at new

technologies and better ways

of doing things. We don’t get it

right every time but we’re getting

better and are fast followers of

new research and technology

changes, which are starting to

show real benefits.”

Beetroot relaunched as the new superfood

VERSATILE: Beetroot likes a sunny well-drained spot,

autumn is the perfect time for planting.

• By Henri Ham

I HAVE distinct memories of eating

beetroot as a child. To approach

with caution – there was the

constant reminder that “beetroot

will stain” (gasp), making it seem

way more effort than it was worth.

Fast-forward 40(ish) years, I now

put beetroot as a must-have kiwi

vege. And gone are the days of only

ever seeing it in a can too. Beetroot’s

been relaunched as a superfood

celebrated for its antioxidants

and vitamins, not to mention delicious

versatility in recipes.

But best of all, it’s easy to grow.

Beetroot is a hardy vege, you can

actually plant all year round in your

garden. But it does prefer a cool/

warm climate, making it perfect for

planting right now in autumn.

Where to plant? Beetroot likes

a sunny well-drained spot in your

garden. First dig over your vege

plot, turning in some compost and

sheep pellets if you’ve got some.

Dig holes for your seedlings, about

3cm deep and 15cm apart. Place

the seedlings in and gently press the

soil down around their base.

Give a good initial watering, and

then keep this up daily for five days

to give them the best possible start.

After this, water every few days.

Don’t forget about them though, as

they can become bitter if they go

through a lengthy dry period. You

can also give them a feed of liquid

plant food, like a seaweed tonic,

every fortnight.

When you plant, consider laying

down some mulch as your organic

weed control. It will smother the

weeds, ensuring they can’t germinate.

Pea straw is ideal for this, and

will also help keep in the moisture.

After a month you can start

harvesting the leaves. But always

leave a few on to keep the plant

growing. Use these leaves the same

way you would spinach or pak choy

– sautéed, added to soups or raw in

salads.

In around three months you’ll be

able to harvest your beetroot. This

is best when they’re between the

size of a golf and tennis ball. The

earlier you harvest, the smaller, but

COLOUR:

Don’t let your

beetroot

get too big

otherwise

it will taste

woody.

sweeter they’ll be. Remember, they

can taste a bit woody when you let

them get too big.

To harvest the root, use a hand

fork underneath the vegetable and

gently pull up from the stalks. Try

to not break the stalks from the

beetroot, as this will cause it to

bleed out and lose its goodness.

Once in the kitchen, relaunch

your own version of beetroot. I

recommend roasting them – drizzle

with oil, making sure all the sides

get oiled. Bake for 45min until soft,

not shrunken. Use in couscous

roast vege salads or topped with

crumbled feta.

Ever tried chocolate beetroot

cake? The result is a moist and rich

looking cake, bound to impress.

What a way to consume your fivea-day

vege.

Community Board has taken the

to figh the city council over

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

The removal o funding

to stand down, citing it as her “die

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

Weatherproofing tips for your

house design

Insulation and double glazed windows are compulsory

in new homes making them infinitely superior to their

older counterparts for warmth yet more can be done to

weatherproof a new home.

Underfloor insulation

Foam insulated expanded polystyrene

panels under the concrete slab act as an

insulating barrier, stopping cold coming

through from under the house.

Garages

Insulating the garage and its door will cut

down on a steady stream of cold air sneaking

into the house. An insulated garage door

can lift the temperature substantially even

when the garage itself is not heated, making

it a more pleasant place to spend time. Any

home appliances kept in the garage will use

less electricity as they will not have to work

as hard and your car battery may last longer.

Roof design

Roof designs vary. The simplest way to

achieve a weather tight house is to have a

simple roof design with an overhanging

surfeit. Architectural flat roofs will work

though more care is needed to achieve

weather tightness especially where there

are hidden or back roof gutters. Having a

roof with no overhang also requires more

care with the design due to its complexity

and potential for problems. Regular

maintenance to clean out leaves and

debris that gets caught in the roof will be

advantageous in both cases.

Porticos

Taking the roof out beyond the house

is ideal for providing a sheltered area for

spending time outdoors when the weather

is inclement.

Snow straps or guttering

protection

Wherever snow is a likely part of winter,

installation of snow straps is a good idea.

These prevent damage to guttering from

the weight of snow as it slides off the roof.

Alternatively, an expanded steel mesh

product such as Gutter Guard could

be fitted. This has the added benefit of

preventing spouting blockages from leaf

and other debris.

Capitalise on the sun

Maximise the sun’s free energy with

plenty of windows, especially on the north

side of the house.

Low-E argon gas filled double glazing increases insulation.

Outdoor areas

When choosing a house design, consider

how it will sit on the section and whether it

offers potential to catch sun inside the home

and for sunny sheltered outdoor areas away

from prevailing winds.

Windows and doors

Upgrade on the minimum standard

for double glazing with thermally broken

joinery and low-emissivity argon gas filled

windows and doors, increasing insulation

effectiveness.

Energy efficient heating

Explore heating options, selecting what

will work best given the size of home and

family needs. Heat pumps are an efficient

form of heating with two cassette and energy

saving options available while heat transfer

systems are great if there is a log burner.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

LED lighting

dominates

the market

The term LED stands for light-emitting

diode and goes back to 1907 when British

experimenter, H J Round discovered the

phenomenon of electroluminescence. In

1962, infrared LEDs emerged in remote

control circuits. They were red and low

in intensity. More recently, technological

improvements have seen LED lighting replace

traditional incandescent lighting due to its

efficiency.

While initially high, the price of LED

lighting has come down dramatically

and product quality which had varied

considerably has improved.

“The LED market has stabilised. Some

products were pricey yet not always good

quality and while cheaper products are

still out there, reliable leading brands have

emerged making it easier for electricians

and home owners to be confident about the

quality now available,” says Greg Horton,

owner of Juice Electrical.

Unlike incandescent light bulbs where

power travels through a wire or filament

causing the bulb to heat up, with LED bulbs

the electrical current passes through a diode

with little or no heating effect. LEDs are more

energy efficient than halogen, incandescent

and fluorescent bulbs. LEDs also light up

quicker, using around 7-15 watts of power to

75 for incandescent lighting and LED diodes

are less fragile than incandescent bulbs.

A quality LED fitting will last considerably

longer so is more cost effective. Insulation

may also be installed over the top of most

quality fittings.

This explains why LEDs are now

the norm in the majority of new

house builds. The light is bright so

introducing a degree of softer light

and dimmers in areas in the home

where one might want to relax, might

be considered.

While it is better to replace

conventional lighting with LED

alternatives in an existing home, Greg

says homeowners need to be

mindful of the difference

between a retrofitted LED

and a complete LED

fitting.

“A quality LED fitting

should have a life

expectancy of around 20 years but a retrofit,

where an LED is fitted into a traditional light

fitting will have a much shorter life of as little

as two to four years,” explains Greg.

Upgraded dimmers may also be needed as

some will not recognise the low electrical load

of an LED.

“Consumers need to be wary when

purchasing decorative lights as some are

marketed as LED when they only take an

LED bulb. Ask the salesperson if it is a

traditional light fitting which will take an

LED bulb or a complete LED fitting. The

latter is preferable,” adds Greg.

When it comes to garden illumination,

LED has been revolutionary with low voltage

lighting which does not have to be buried in a

600mm deep trench. LED garden lighting can

safely be operated under weed mat, bark and

other mulch or even on the surface.

To learn more about LED lighting, talk

to an electrician or give Greg a call. He has

over 13 years’ experience taking care of the

electrical needs of Selwyn residents.

Consider

where

you might

want softer

lighting.

LEDs are brighter.
