Making a difference in young people’s lives

• By Anan Zaki

MAKING A difference before

teens grow up.

That is Senior Constable

Bruce Ward’s ambition as he

looks forward to becoming the

district’s first dedicated youth

aid police officer.

Previously, he has split his

time as the youth aid officer

responsible for both Hornby

and the district. But as a result

of additional police resources,

Senior Constable Ward will be

based in the district full-time,

and work out of the Rolleston

station.

commuter

rail service

• By Anan Zaki

THE BRAKES have been put

on Labour’s promise to bring

commuter rail to Rolleston.

Prior to the 2017 general

election, the Labour Party stated

that if elected, it would provide

$100 million for public transport

in Canterbury – starting with a

commuter rail service between

Rolleston and the Christchurch

CBD.

However, Transport Minister

Phil Twyford told Selwyn Times

last week that Environment

Canterbury must first propose

a commuter rail service before

money can be allocated.

“ECan needs to have a rail

service proposed in their regional

land transport plan before it can

be evaluated and considered for

funding,” Mr Twyford said.

Selwyn MP Amy Adams called

the statement a “cop-out” and said

the pledge was a “poorly thoughtout

election bribe.”

“For the minister to now

say it would be up to ECan to

propose such a service before the

Government would consider it, is

a cop-out,” she said.

SELWYN TIMES

POLICE CHIEFS have made the right

move in appointing the district’s first youth

aid officer.

As Selwyn’s population grows it brings

with it all of the issues other major centres

have.

We pointed out last week, youth crime and disorder issues are

starting to make their mark in Rolleston – graffiti is a sure sign

of what lies ahead.

As the Lesstons, Lincolns and other urban areas also grow in

size, they too will start to have problems they have never really

had.

So appointing Bruce Ward, who I am reliably told is a great fit

for the role, can only bring benefits.

Our article on the crammed West Melton School bus last

month appears to have paid dividends. See page 6.

Tourism operators

slam council for lack of support

LINCOLN EVENT CENTRE

liveinlincoln.nz

In Brief

• By Anan Zaki

A HORORATA business leader

has slammed the district council

for not supporting the tourism

industry.

Ballooning Canterbury

co-founder Michael Oakley

said tourism

operators have

mainly had to

self-promote

the district as a

holiday destination.

“The support

Michael Oakley

we get from

the council is

pretty much

zilch I feel, and I’m saying it

because it ain’t happening,’’ Mr

Oakley said.

The district council brought

tourism operators together last

year and identified activities in

the district to promote, he said.

“We’ve got some world-class operators

here and activities and a lot

of people aren’t hearing about us.

And the disappointing thing I get

from a number of passengers is:

‘We only came to Selwyn because

we wanted to do the ballooning

because there’s not much else to

do’. And that’s real sad.”

IN ASSOCIATION WITH

THE MEN’S ROOM

Mr Oakley also criticised the

district council’s Sensational

Selwyn Awards, where The Tea

House in Lincoln took out the

tourism award in 2016.

“I think they [awards] are

the biggest joke out. It was a

joke when you get a restaurant

getting the tourism award [in

2016],” he said.

“They closed six months after

they won the award, and here

we are, bringing in hundreds

of people into Selwyn, putting

people into accommodation.”

Mr Oakley believed the district

also missed an opportunity

after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

“Christchurch was closed

and we had great activities out

here in Selwyn but there was no

real push to get people into the

Selwyn area to try our activities,”

he said.

Ms Kidd said the council is

currently working on campaigns

aligned with Tourism New Zealand

and ChristchurchNZ.

“We are continuing to develop

the council’s Ski Selwyn Six

website, promoting our fantastic

ski fields, with five great club

fields and one commercial field.”

HEDGE FIRE

A rubbish fire spread to a

hedge at a property on Springs

Rd near Lincoln on Thursday.

One appliance and two tankers

from Lincoln Fire Station were

called to the incident at about

3pm. Lincoln chief fire officer

Jeremy Greenwood said the

fire was contained in about 15

minutes.

CAR CRASH

A motorist hit a stationary car

in Doyleston on Saturday night.

Leeston and Southbridge fire

crews were called to the incident

just before 11pm. Leeston chief

fire officer Lloyd Clausen said

only one person was involved –

the driver of the moving vehicle.

The male driver was unhurt, he

said.

STATION MAKEOVER

Over the next two weeks

the Coalgate Fire Station

will be getting a new paint

job. Chief fire officer Phillip

Shaw said it had been “several

years” since the station got its

last makeover. “Hopefully we

don’t get anything to disrupt

the painters,” Mr Shaw

said.

Community

centre at

Weedons

opened

THE WEEDONS Community

Centre was opened on Friday.

Construction of the $830,000

facility began in May 2018 and

was completed in December 2018.

District council major projects

property manager John Reid said

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 said.

The project has been in the

pipeline since 2011 when the

first plans were drawn up, said

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,” Mr Holmes said.

The new facility has a multipurpose

room, a kitchen and

storeroom, 24-hour accessible

toilet and two changing rooms.

Ms Adams believes the

Government has realised the

project does not “stack up” –

but she would not tell Selwyn

“At the time of

the election, they

last year for the New Zealand

Transport Agency to consider

endorsing.

“This business case identifies

the need to complete a detailed

investigation and analysis into

the viability, location, timing and

preferred mode for rapid transit

to service and support greater

Christchurch over the next 30

years,” Mr Gibbon said.

ECan confirmed it has not

received the $100 million for

commuter rail which Labour

pledged before the election.

However, Mr Twyford said the

Government is still committed

to commuter rail.

“Our Government is

committed to developing

transport options in our urban

areas by investing nearly $4

billion in public transport, rapid

transit and metro rail over the

next three years,” he said.

Ms Adams said those

comments fell short of what was

promised to Rolleston.

“The South Island keeps

missing out in terms of transport

spending as Labour focuses

only on their pet projects in

Auckland,” she said.

Mr Twyford disagreed, saying

Canterbury does get support.

“It’s disappointing that

Amy Adams doesn’t seem

to remember how transport

projects are funded,” he said.

“Councils need to propose

transport projects to be funded

and our Government is investing

$176 million in public transport

in Canterbury in this three-year

period, a 24 per cent increase

compared to the previous

Government,” he said.

But Ms Adams said Mr

Twyford is “hiding behind

process.”

“We are talking about a

clear and unequivocal election

promise that Labour made that

they have not fulfilled. None

of the spending the minister

referred to is for a commuter rail

service between Christchurch

and Rolleston or indeed

anywhere in Canterbury.”

Public notified of quarry proposal

• By Anan Zaki

MORE THAN a year after plans

were announced, Fulton Hogan’s

quarry proposal near Weedons

has finally been publicly notified.

Its application for resource

consents from both Environment

Canterbury and the

district council was notified on

Saturday.

Fulton

It applied for

from ECan

to discharge

contaminants,

stormwater and also applied for

a water permit to use water for

aggregate washing.

Fulton Hogan also applied

for consents from the district

council for land use for gravel

extraction and processing.

Fulton Hogan is seeking an

unlimited duration for all land

use consents and 35 years for its

discharge permits.

The public notification

comes about 18 months after

Fulton Hogan first announced

its intentions to quarry in the

area.

Weedons quarry opponent

Simon Moore said it has been a

long wait and the process had

University back

to pre-quake

numbers

THE EFFECTS of the

Canterbury earthquakes on

student numbers at Lincoln

University may finally be over.

The total number of equivalent

full-time students enrolling for

semester one this year is the

highest since the province was

hit by the series of quakes which

began in September 2010.

In 2010, semester one EFTS

stood at 1067 – in 2019 they are

at 1061.

Lincoln University acting

vice-chancellor Bruce McKenzie

said the university had worked

hard to regain the pre-quake

numbers.

Said Professor McKenzie:

“I think the figures show that

Lincoln University is seen as

an institution which provides a

world-class education, and the

province provides opportunities

for a great future. It is a vote of

confidence in us, and in Canterbury.”

He said one of the focuses

in 2019 was to continuing to

grow the number of Maori and

Pasifika students at Lincoln.

Six new scholarships started

this year to support and

encourage Maori and Pasifika

students to achieve their

aspirations.

Solution to crowding on school bus

The Ministry has now provided

funding for an additional bus.

Ms Paris said the pupils were

happy with the decision to make

funding available.

She said she could not be certain

if public pressure played a

role in the Ministry changing its

mind about funding the bus.

“We did everything in our

power,” she said.

The school was also prepared

to self-fund the bus if it had to,

Ms Paris said.

“As a board we had actually

made a decision to fund it [the

additional bus]. Because a number

of us [at the board] have children

in the class and it doesn’t sit

well with us.”

The children were also happy

with the move. Ms Paris said

she now hopes seat belts become

mandatory on all school buses

across the country.

“I think it would be really nice

if they had seat belts on the bus if

you want my honest opinion.”

“It’s kind of ludicrous . . .

maybe that’s just my view but I

would just love to see seat belts

on school buses,” Ms Paris

said.

Said Ministry of Education

“Although the bus was being

limits, enrolment information

Steam Extravaganza

The weekend of the 13th and 14th April

promises to demonstrate how steam

worked when steam was king.

Steam Scene can be found on McLean’s

Island Road. The day is a living,

breathing, educational attraction where

steam powered machinery can be

experienced in all its glory. Devoted

enthusiasts show you what these engines

did in the early 1900’s.

The Society has recently celebrated

its 50th Anniversary. It has turned

the Steam Extravaganza into New

Zealand’s premier Steam Gathering

with exhibits ranging from models to 2

steam locomotives. We will be expecting

about 25 traction engines and other

steam driven vehicles to be on display

and operating working displays of saw

milling, sheep shearing, grain threshing,

road making, stone crushing and black

smithing. A blacksmith will be shaping

hot metal with a manner on an Anvil.

A free steam train ride will be

circulating around the perimeter of

Steam Scene with two open-sided

carriages that people can ride on to view

what is going on around you.

The Steam Museum will be operating

its many steam machines from a

wood-fired boiler. This Museum

is now known worldwide as a

must see for steam enthusiasts who

love watching the engines quietly

ticking over. Family fun can be had

looking at the scenery, watching

and listening to the huge Model

Railway in the Museum. The

scenery is based on England in

the 1950’s.

A miniature railway is running all day

with rides costing $2.00. Major working

displays in purposely built covered

areas will be staggered throughout the

weekend making it as easy to see how big

shiny pistons, driving rods and flywheels

are linked together to turn steam into

motive power. You can marvel at the

workers who had to work long hours on

these machines.

Food and drink stalls will be on hand

for refreshments. There is plenty of off

road parking. Gates will open at 9am

with the final demonstrations at approx.

2pm on both days.

There is Eftpos on site. Entry fee is

$15 per adult and children under 15 are

free.

No dogs are permitted.

People of all ages can get up-close to

machines and experience themselves

what it was like to operate such vehicles

in the old days as well as the sounds and

aromas generated by them.

Meet the district’s new

police youth aid officer

•From page 1

Selwyn Times reported

last week that youth crime

has been increasing in

Rolleston – but Senior

Constable Ward believes

the district is no worse

than Christchurch.

A large number of

children have moved to the

district with their families

in recent years, he said.

They are now growing up

and contributing to the

increase. “You’ve got youth

problems in Rolleston,

Leeston and Lincoln that

you didn’t have before

because there wasn’t any

youth,” Senior Constable

Ward said.

When he split his time

between Hornby and

the district, dedicating

attention to one area was

difficult.

“I could never dedicate

my full time to it [Selwyn

Youth aid is not an area

DEDICATED: Senior

Constable Bruce Ward

is passionate about

working with young

people in the district.

Senior Constable Ward has

always been involved in,

but he is passionate about

working in the community.

“I was seven years in

Oamaru, then three years

as a school community

officer [in Hornby] and

then nine years in youth

aid.”

“I think it’s seeing

change, you can get a

chance to change young

people. You don’t win all

the time, and you have

some young people when

they get 17 they go straight

into district court and

still offending,” Senior

Constable Ward said.

He takes pride in helping

youth offenders transform

themselves. “There’s a

lot of satisfaction when

they’re popping into see

you when they are 19 or

20. I remember one case,

he came in to see me to

say he’s got a job as an

apprentice plumber,”

Senior Constable Ward

said.

“As a 14-year-old, he

was addicted to cannabis.

It wasn’t solely me, of

course, other agencies were

involved.”

Rolleston College

principal Steve Saville

called the appointment a

“fantastic” move.

“From our perspective,

it’s absolutely wonderful,

Bruce is a great guy, we

have a good relationship

with him,” he said.

“The kids know

Bruce, he’s known in the

community, they are very

lucky to have someone who

will be able to hit the floor

running.”

Your Local Views

Time to be pro-active with tourism

Hororata

bed and

breakfast

provider Paul

McOscar

responds to

last week’s

Council Call

HIGHLIGHTED IN the twopage

Council Call supplement

the article Selwyn Tourism

Strengthening stands out.

You read it and say great.

The mayor says “this can be

attributed to the hard work of

local operators and the council’s

efforts in supporting that work.”

Pardon! Let’s be honest, credit

where credit is due. I need to be

clearer just what the council has

done.

For a number of years I along

with others have been asking

the council to become more

pro-active and get in behind

the promotion of Selwyn as a

destination not a thoroughfare

for tourists.

We look at tourism figures

increasing annually. Selwyn is in

a prime position as, at a guesstimate,

over 70 per cent who head

down to the tourist prime spots

of Tekapo, Mt Cook, and Wanaka

and of course Queenstown

pass through Selwyn by road.

That’s not to mention those that

head through Arthur’s Pass to

the West Coast.

Now I’ll hear the council say

but we have increased traveller’s

toilets (but remember with the

help of a Government subsidy)

and then of course we have freedom

camper spots.

Great that attempts to stop

behind the bush toilet stops or

rubbish accumulation from

these $20 a day (or slightly more)

spend tourists. Of course we

can say that increases our rate

bills to maintain this service for

freedom campers who we know

are here on the cheap.

Methven will leap ahead soon

with the hot water pools project.

Many of our accommodation

providers benefit from the Mt

Hutt ski season. The young like

the ski scene in Methven but

many of the mature skiers look

for more astute accommodation

elsewhere or nearby.

Let’s not forget the ski fields in

the Porter Valley.

Okay, the council will say we

have innovative brochures and

the Selwyn Experience website

(but now with a new charge if

you want anything apart from

facility name, address and contact

number).

The Hororata Community

Trust, in my opinion, does more

to support tourism in this neck

of the woods than the council.

We also have an innovative

group of tourist providers based

around Lake Coleridge who act

as a facilitator for their area to

promote tourism.

I’m sure the remaining jet

boat, balloon, horse-trekking,

gliding, fishing guides and

hunting outfitters who operate

alternative services in the

wider area will say they’d love

to have a greater share of the

tourism cake or be part of a Lake

Coleridge-type promotional

group. I haven’t mentioned the

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you have a view on a local

issue? Email anan.zaki@starmedia.kiwi

subsidiary business like cafes,

food stops, fuel stations and the

like that would also benefit from

greater tourist nights in Selwyn’s

wider district.

Council staff need to consider

the effect of their bureaucratic

decision-making and its outcomes

on the community and

businesses.

An example is the result of one

of the council’s asset team’s dealing

with issues at the popular

Glentunnel Holiday Park. This

occurrence has chased away

nearly 50 per cent of their last

year’s regular Xmas/New Year

holiday camp patronage.

The collateral effect is that

Hororata Golf Club saw one of its

worst green fee revenue periods

ever and the Glentunnel Store

was greatly affected by the downturn

in trade from the campers.

The council needs to become

more innovative in its response

to tourism and securing its share

of the tourist dollar spend in

Selwyn.

SELWYN TIMES

Reader William Adair

responds to last week’s

article about plans for a

quarry near Weedons

One hundred per cent opposed.

More than enough quarries in

this area. Fly into Christchurch

on the main east approach and

what do tourists see? Numerous

ugly quarries, prisons, and other

institutions.

I appreciate there is a need for

all these things but I think they

should not be concentrated in the

one area.

Noise, traffic? I note in your

article that Fulton Hogan said traffic

will go east. How do they know

that the material may be required

in the west/north/south. Have they

a crystal ball into the future?

Fulton Hogan said they would

use the new motorway. No onramp

from Dawsons or Curraghs

Rds. Where do they plan to access

it?

When a nor’easter is blowing

you have to slow down on the

Main West Rd as visibility is very

low due to dust.

Lifestyle blocks backed by

Christchurch City Council and

Selwyn District Council have been

embraced by people like myself

for just that, the lifestyle. They

should be supporting their lifestyle

ratepayers’ battle rather than being

non-proactive.

I live about 4km from the site.

I’m not directly effected but it’s

time the councils drew a line in

the sand.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Budding young artist

GOOD NEWS! After a standard

“where is my food?” tantrum I

found my mouse.

Vittoria’s tantrum, not mine,

just to be clear.

My morning routine generally

consists of dragging myself out

of bed while Vittoria causes

chaos out of reach before

struggling to get both her and

my breakfasts ready before her

hungry tantrum kicks in.

It’s surprising how much you

sweat when a small child is

screaming into the kitchen while

you try and let your wife sleep

in.

So last Friday, as I “took too

long” to get her Weet-Bix and

fruit ready, Vittoria took to

pulling apart the shoe rack to

teach me a lesson.

Normally I’d step in to stop it,

but in the interest of expediency

I decided to just put it all back

together after we’d eaten.

Lo and behold, underneath

the running shoes I definitely

only talk about using was my

mouse. Thank the lord.

This week, Vittoria got her

first set of crayons. They’re out of

reach when she’s not under strict

supervision.

The walls in our rental

property are cream, I intend for

them to stay that way.

Laura managed to get her to

draw onto a pad while I was out

a couple of weeks ago and we

hung it on the fridge.

I’ve finally reached that stage

of life. So we got her the crayons

in the interest of seeing her be

able to artistically express herself

more often.

I don’t know artists because

I’m a complete philistine, but

she’s just like that classical

artist who would pour so much

passion into their art that they

eventually tear it up and eat

some of it.

So we have one more

masterpiece on the fridge so far.

In regards to my morning

routine, I will be enjoying my

Colourful spider

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

entomology (insects and other invertebrates).

Each week he introduces a new species found in

his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise

public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of

living things around us. Check out the full list of

invertebrates found at http://naturewatch.org.nz/projects/

backyard-biodiversity-bugs-in-lincoln

A SMALL but colourful cobweb

spider that has recently arrived in

Lincoln is the white porch spider,

Cryptachaea gigantipes.

THis species is of Australian

origin and its first recorded

sighting in New Zealand was in

Auckland in 2000, although it

may well have arrived as early as

the 1980s. It is closely associated

with human habitation and is

commonly found both in and

outside of houses.

THis association with humans

is likely to have helped its

dispersal to New Zealand in

the first instance and south

from Auckland to Leeston so

far.

THe species builds a typical

cobweb which snares its prey,

including insects and some

spiders, such as the grey house

spider.

THe white porch spider has

very long legs, which are useful to

avoid bites when capturing other

spiders.

Pre-school celebrates 10 years

Local pre-school Burnham Country

Montessori is celebrating 10 years

since it opened its doors this month.

Just five minutes’ drive from Rolleston,

the pre-school is inspired by the

Montessori philosophy and Te Whāriki,

says owner Jasmine Adam who built

Burnham Country Montessori in 2009.

“The Montessori way of learning

is based on treating children as

individuals and providing opportunities

for them to experience creative

play, collaboration and relationship

building,” says Jasmine.

The pre-school on Burnham School

Road is set on a large slice of

rural countryside offering unique

experiences for its children and

featuring huge playgrounds,

vegetable patches, fruit trees and

even a Kune Kune pig for them to

look after.

Learning to care for both animals and

plant life develops understanding

and respect for the environment,

says Jasmine, while practical

exercises such as cleaning or tidying

help develop the child’s motor coordination.

“We also explain how to greet

people, how to correctly ask for

something and how to express

gratitude. By being kind and helpful

at this time develops a spirit of

helpfulness and responsibility,” says

Jasmine.

“Our vision for our tamariki is to inspire

a lifelong passion for learning, within

a sustainable environment, filled with

respect and aroha,” says Jasmine.

Three different age groups catered

for at Burnham Country Montessori –

newborns in the nursery, two to four

year olds (where there are vacancies)

and a separate classroom for four to

six-year-olds where they get to be the

“seniors” within the centre.

For more information phone Jasmine and the team at 03 347

ROLLESTON College students

treated staff to an afternoon tea

The afternoon tea was initiated

and organised by year 9, 10

and 11 learner leaders from the

“The learners wanted to say

thank you and acknowledge

the aroha and bravery staff had

shown towards the learners in

the wake of Friday (March) 15

and also provide a space for staff

well-being to be enhanced,” a

school spokeswoman said.

Teachers received cards with

“Thank you to Chloe Duff,

class visited the Meremere

building, home to the Canterbury

University Law School.

The students were shown the

moot room, which is the mock

trial room, and were then taken

upstairs to learn about New

In this workshop, the

students were taught how to

evaluate the mitigating and

aggravating factors of a criminal

case. The adventure media class

also went on an overnight tramp

to Woolshed Creek.

Organisers of the Malvern 48-hour

FilmFest Challenge want to remind

enthusiastic local filmmakers that

creating a short film will take a wee bit

of preparation. “Making a 2–6 minute

film is immensely satisfying, but it’s also

something of a mission”, says organiser,

Phil Baldwin, Chair of the Malvern

Community Arts Council, local sponsor of

the FilmFest Challenge.

“There are heaps of things to think

of besides gathering your team and

equipment, writing the script, assigning

roles, and shooting the scenes. Lighting,

costumes, sound and music, continuity

and editing—these are just some of

the aspects of filmmaking that will

help your work stand out from the

competition”, Mr Baldwin advised.

A quick google search of “how to

make a short film” will reveal literally

millions of tips and tricks for making

your own film. April school holidays

may be the perfect time for teams to

see what they can do in a 48-hour

stretch, as all creative activity required

to produce an entry in the FilmFest

challenge—writing, shooting, editing,

audio mixing, and submitting an entry—

must occur within the 48 hours of the

competition, beginning Friday evening,

12 July 2019 at 7.00pm and ending

Sunday, 14 July 2019 at 7.00pm.

The completed films will be screened

for the filmmakers and the general

public at the Darfield Recreation Centre

on Saturday, 20 July 2019 at 7.00pm,

and prizes will be awarded by a panel

of judges.

Organisers are gearing up for Early

Bird registrations in May. “We have all

New Community Signals a Return

to ‘The Good Old Days’

Anyone who has ever found themselves

dreaming of a return to a simpler time when

neighbourhood kids banded together and

played out and about for hours (and their

parents were more than happy to see them

do it!) will love Acland Park - Rolleston’s

newest and fastest selling development

from the Avanda Group.

This is just the sort of activity this refreshingly

different subdivision has been designed to

encourage. “We don’t just want to build a

subdivision, we are creating a community’

explains South Island Sales and Marketing

Manager Eddie McLean. ”That’s why we have

gone to a lot of thought and effort to create

an infrastructure that is unlike any other

subdivision.”

With titles only weeks away, the attention to

detail is already evident:

• The use of a wide range of materials in the

streets, walkways and surrounding areas

makes for a significantly better aesthetic

than normal and creates an interesting

and varied environment.

• The streets themselves have been

really well designed. Large boulevards

and roundabouts create a feeling of

spaciousness and make it easier for

people to move around comfortably.

• The specially designed ‘neighbourhood’

areas in particular are very family friendly

in their design and layout. They have wide

corners designed to slow down turning traffic

and ensure drivers can’t cut corners, and to

maximise visibility.

• The neighbourhood areas also incorporate

specifically designed ‘courtyards’ which have

been included to encourage hard surface

play – a great way to get the kids off their

devices and out into the fresh air!

• The local commercial hub will provide plenty

of convenience and amenities – while you

sit back and relax, the kids can play in the

expansive parks and play areas

The entire subdivision is built on TC1 land,

ensuring a stable building platform. The sections

are fenced by the developer which is another

example of the value provided by Avanda.

With over 1,000 titles in the overall development,

choice is plentiful. Section sizes range from

400m2 to 1,000m2.

The developers are keen to reward early

buyers into Acland Park by offering sections

at significantly reduced introductory prices,

starting from just $155,000.

Antony Geddes – South Island Development Manager, Avanda Group


My extended family has enjoyed farming the Acland Park land for

generations. So, it is fantastic to know that many new and established

families will get to enjoy a similar opportunity for the future.

There are many amenity points about Acland Park, Rolleston; which

you won’t find in other subdivisions, all of which have been designed to

create a safe and relaxed environment with a strong sense of community.

We have developed a series of new streetscapes which provide a

pedestrian environment, with the inclusion of courtyards to encourage

hard surface play, signaling a return of the good old days when kids

were safe and free to go and play in the street – and their parents

were happy to let them!

With a centrally located Commercial Centre planning an offering of

hospitality, retail, medical centre, and an Early Learning Centre the

Acland Park community will have the best facilities in the region.

We’re now rewarding early buyers by offering fenced sections

at significantly lower prices for a limited time – so don’t miss your

opportunity to live better for less – enquire now!

Our People

Alistair Morris

Providing a way for boys to have fun

Lincoln ICONZ is

celebrating its 10th

birthday. Anan Zaki talks

to Alistair Morris, the

co-ordinator and founder

of the boys’ programme,

about its impact on

young people

What is Lincoln ICONZ?

It’s essentially a newer version

of the Boys’ Brigade which has

been going since 1883. It started

in Scotland by Sir William Smith.

Boys’ Brigade came to New

Zealand in 1886 and 15 years ago

ICONZ was invented as a new

programme to modernise the

Boys’ Brigade.

Why did it need to

modernise?

Essentially, Boys’ Brigade hadn’t

changed for a 100-odd years and

was slowly losing numbers –

especially in New Zealand. And

they decided to come up with a

new programme. Boys’ Brigade

was based on the army. Boys’

Brigade had a rank system such

as Corporal, Lance Corporal

and Sergeant. It wasn’t popular

anymore and I think it went away

from our core values a little bit,

like being part of a church. So

ICONZ brought in, it’s not an

acronym or anything. It’s a newer,

modern way of doing it.

What do boys do in the

programme?

We have awards based on

spiritual, physical, adventure,

community and interested.

They are awarded throughout

the year in three or four-week

programmes for each award. And

we just work our way through the

programme, we start at six-yearolds

and go right through to 18.

We do a tycoons award where

we come up with a concept that

we want to make. For example

we made planter boxes last year

and the boys had to come up

with how to make it, the cost of

materials, how much they think

they can sell them for at a profit

because that’s what a tycoon

is and the boys would choose

which charity would receive the

money. They’re doing a patriot’s

award at the moment, so we’ve

been down to the Selwyn River

and done a river run. Went out to

Lake Ellesmere and played in the

mud out there. We’re doing a bit

of marching, which is all part of

the patriot’s award leading into

Anzac Day. We do tramps, we

do camps, swimming, cycling.

There’s a spiritual award as

well because we are a Christian

organisation so everything has a

spiritual aspect to it.

Do you find that spirituality is

still there amongst children?

We think it’s important and

since 1883 it’s been that way

and that’s one thing that we will

not change. But my opinion is,

young Christian men can still

get out and have fun. They can

be perceived to be: ‘Oh, you’re

Christian, you’re boring, you’re

not having any fun.’ Well we go

tramping, we go hunting. We

don’t try and be PC [politically

correct] about things. We go

out there and have fun. We do

risks. As long as the boys think

it’s risky and we’ve taken the

appropriate safety precautions,

then that’s what they want.

What sort of impact does it

have on the boys?

We’re trying to grow good

Christian men. We’re trying to

grow them into good members

of the community and helpful

and be community spirited

with good morals. Schools don’t

always cater for boys very well,

we feel. For example, we play bull

rush every week, and the boys

love it. But they can’t do that

at school. We also do cooking

awards, health awards about what

food you should eat. The boys

enjoy getting into the kitchen at

the church and making pizzas –

as long as they get to eat the

food.

Our People

‘You just have to get on and get it done’

•From page 15

Do you think there should be

more female influence?

At Lincoln ICONZ we haven’t

got any female leaders but other

brigades do. We don’t have girls

at that age group. I think that

boys learn better with boys.

How long have you been

involved in this?

I went through Boys’ Brigade

in Southland. I started when I

was 12 [now 52]. And I got my

Queen’s Award, which is the

highest award you can get in

Boys’ Brigade and then when I

moved to Canterbury in 1987

I joined the Boys’ Brigade

company up here and became a

leader.

Why did you decide to open

up an ICONZ in Lincoln?

We moved [as a family] to

Springston 10 years ago, and

my oldest boy came at the right

age to join [ICONZ]. But there

was nothing out here in Selwyn.

So I approached the Lincoln

Baptist Church elders and about

nine months after we started it

up.

It’s now 10 years in the

running in Lincoln, did you

ever think it could reach this

stage?

I was hoping it would but no.

You don’t sort of think about

that when you start it up. You

Retail

ADVENTURE: Boys from Lincoln ICONZ often spend their times outdoors tramping.

just get through the first year I

think. Some units don’t last this

long. But if you don’t have a Boys’

Brigade background, it helps

because you know the history.

And some of the Boys’ Brigade/

ICONZ chapters in Christchurch

are in their fourth and fifth

generations. That’s the testimony

of that organisation.

You’ve done this for 10 years,

what are some of the differences

you see from boys from when

Retail Investment

they start off to when they

finish?

Oh it would be their

confidence. Their confidence and

their maturity. It comes with age

naturally anyway but we do hope

that we’re instilling confidence

in the boys. A good example is

two years ago we went on a two

day expedition to the Bindsler

and Casey Saddle [at Arthur’s

Pass National Park]. That was

a 12-hour walk one day and a

10-hour walk the next. These are

seven and eight-year-olds doing

it carrying packs. And they made

it.

There were a lot of complaints,

a lot of moaning and: ‘Oh I don’t

want to carry ons’, sore feet and

tired muscles, but we all got

through it and we all survived.

Hopefully that instilled that life is

tough, you just have to get on and

get it done and you can come out

the other side.

It sounds like the outdoors

is quite important in what you

teach, why is that?

That’s where you have all fun.

That’s where you can get all

muddy and dirty. And you just

make the most of what God has

created. You can’t do that sitting

in a classroom. Terms two and

three, yes we are inside most of

the time but terms one and four

we try and get out into the district

and go camping and tramping.

Who funds the programme?

We are self-funding. We charge

fees, it goes to the awards, which

the kids don’t have to pay [extra]

for. We’re all volunteers here. The

church also funds it a bit, it’s one

of the arms of the Lincoln Baptist

Church.

You’ve come this far in 10

years, what do you hope for the

future?

I would hope that the next

generation of the top-end boys

will Rolleston

carry on as leaders and their

children will carry on and keep

the same thing going.

You’ve got a celebration

coming up?

We’ve got a church service

at Lincoln Baptist on April 28.

We’re just going to have service,

nothing special but we’d like

to invite any ex Boys’ Brigade

members and Lincoln ICONZ

members.

BOOST getting its skates

on for new year

Weedons Community

Centre opening

About 60 people attended the official opening of the Weedons

Community Centre on Friday 5 April. Mayor Sam Broughton and

Selwyn MP Hon Amy Adams joined councillors, members of the

Weedons Reserve Committee and the community at the event.

Students from Weedons School also gave a speech, before the

building was declared open.

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

plans were drawn up, says Weedons Reserve Committee

Chairman Peter Holmes.

“It’s great to see the building finally completed,” Mr Holmes says.

“This is a community centre which will be used by the cricket and

tennis clubs, but also by the wider community.”

Council Major Projects Property Manager John Reid says the

Community Centre will provide a modern facility for the community

and sports groups. The centre has a multi-purpose room, kitchen,

storeroom, 24-hour accessible toilet and two changing rooms.

BOOST is back with a brand new set of events for the year, starting with an epic skate day

in Rolleston.

BOOST Skate, for people of all ages on all kinds of wheels, will be held at Rolleston Skatepark on

Friday 26 April, 11.30am–2pm.

The day will feature a skate competition run by Cheapskates and bike maker Pedalmania will be

there with a huge collection of bizarre and cool recycled bikes. Giant games and other fun will also

be run by the council events team and there will be spot prizes on the day.

It is the first of several BOOST events for the year, which will be run by the Selwyn Youth Council

each school holidays, Katelyn Twiss, Chair of the Selwyn Youth Council says. “Instead of holding

BOOST in one two-week holiday, this year we are trying to spread a range of activities out

over the year. By doing that, we hope there will be more interaction with the youth and more

opportunities to get different youth from all over the district involved, enjoying themselves and

having fun.”

A sausage sizzle, fundraising for the victims of the terror attack in Christchurch, will be run by

Selwyn Youth Council and there will also be a food truck and coffee available.

“As a youth council, we really wanted an opportunity for the people of Selwyn to be able to

contribute and give support to the families of the victims and those affected by the tragedy, even

if that contribution is small, and show that the people of Selwyn support love in the face of hate,”

Katelyn says.

BOOST Skate follows on from the eight popular Summer Skate/Scooter Jam events the Council

ran as part of Summer in Selwyn. About 530 people of all ages turned out to enjoy the events at

skate parks and schools across the region.

Summer Skate/Scooter Jam organiser Connie Dick said they were excited to see BOOST Skate

continuing the fun.

“It was great to see so many young people taking their first ride over the summer and improving

their skills, and we’re excited to see another opportunity for young people and families to come

back and keep enjoying the parks and staying active.”

School holiday packed with fun

If you’re looking for ways to entertain the kids these school holidays Selwyn libraries and Selwyn

Aquatic Centre have got you covered.

From making your own movie to giant inflatable toys there’s plenty for children and even the

young at heart.

Along with being open any time for a swim, the Selwyn Aquatic Centre will have extra holiday activities

from 2–4pm week days with inflatable toys and paddleboats out on different days.

The libraries will also be hosting a range of craft and creative activities plus an Easter Storytimes. These

early evening Storytimes (6–7pm) are aimed at children aged two to seven. Come in your cosiest PJs,

and enjoy some fabulous interactive stories, a treasure hunt and a craft activity.

There’s even a chance to make your own movie with Lincoln Library hosting two one-day Stop Motion

Animation workshops on Monday 15 April and Tuesday 16 April. Suitable for children ages nine and

above, the workshops will take children through the process of making a stop motion movie, from

concept to final film. The workshop costs $15 and bookings are essential.

For a full list of events, times and booking visit selwynlibraries.co.nz or facebook/SelwynAquaticCentre

Term 2 activity programme

out now

Look out for your Council activity programme in your letterbox this

week for the large variety of activities being run around the district

next term.

From music and kids events, crafts and games the programme is

your guide to what’s on for all ages at Council facilities in your area.

New this term are Babytimes, a story time with songs and rhymes

designed for children from birth to one years, and a series of sewing

classes, including patternmaking, clothes mending and alterations.

Unveiling of new mural

On Friday 29th March, West Melton School unveiled their new school mural.

The mural planning process began at the

beginning of 2018! Their cultural committee met

several times to discuss the vision for the mural

which they wanted to convey the ‘essence’ of West

Melton School and they wanted to imbed the schools

cultural narrative through the art.

Te Kura o Papatahora (West Melton School) is in

an area that is looked after by the people of Taumutu

Marae- Ngāiti Ruahikihiki (a sub-tribe of Ngāi

Tahu). Ngāi Tahu are kaitiaki (guardians) for the

land. The mountains and rivers of Te Wai Pounamu

are very sacred to Ngāi Tahu. Te Tiritiri-o-Te-mana

(the Southern Alps) can be seen from the school.

The Waimakariri River is one of the largest rivers in

Canterbury. Ka-Pākihi Whakatekateka o Waitaha

(The Canterbury Plains) were covered with a mixture

of tussocks and grasses, kōwhai trees, forest patches

as well as snow, rivers, waterways and wetlands.

Plants found in the area were Tī kouka, Mānuka,

Kōwhai and Tōtara. These are referenced in the

mural.

The mural was student led, designed and painted

by students for the school and community.

All West Melton School students learnt about

murals and had the opportunity to submit a design.

The cultural committee received many submissions

and four with special merit were selected for the

presentation to the Board of Trustees. Daisy F’aavae,

Nash Allin, Jasmine Rowland and Josh Winfield

shared their ideas with the Board and a collaborative

piece was created which included Josh’ logo, Daisy’s

Pacifika weavings, Nash’ landscape and Jasmine’s

striking circular artwork.

Initially, the mural was going to incorporate a

Pātiki (flounder) kowhaiwhai pattern, but after

consultation with local iwi, it was decided that an

original adaptation of the Koru would be more

appropriate.

All learners who submitted designs were treated

to an afternoon at The Christchurch Art Gallery

to participate in their ‘Wall to Wall’ exhibition in

August. During this trip, they saw a lot of public art

and they came back inspired!

Many students throughout the school contributed

to the mural. Not only did students paint the mural,

but also many staff and some of the community

painted the two colourful weavings which combine

the colours of their whanau’s -Hill, Trickett, Ross,

Langdale, Selwyn and Newton.

It was a mammoth undertaking but it certainly

makes a vibrant statement of who they are as a

school and community.

Perfect floral arrangements

for every occasion

Whatever the occasion flowers will

almost always play an important role,

so whether it’s a birthday, anniversary,

wedding or funeral in your family, Miss

Lily Flowers of West Melton can provide

the perfect floral arrangement.

Business owner Sandy Sharp says

“business is blooming” as more people

discover her creativity, style and

magnificent selection of high-quality

flowers catering for all tastes, occasions

and budgets.

“I’ve become the go-to florist’ in the

local area, plus I provide daily delivery

across Christchurch and the surrounding

areas.”

Weddings are a key focus for Miss

Lily Flowers, and now that the summer

wedding season is over, Sandy suggests

prospective brides and grooms consider a

winter wedding.

“The venues and vendors are not so

heavily booked during winter, and it’s

also an opportunity for people to have

something different, with winter flowers

and foliage in their floral decorations and

bouquets.”

Sandy has recently introduced a new

service at Miss Lily Flowers – a flower

subscription, with a weekly, fortnightly

or monthly delivery. Subscibers can order

a selection of loose seasonal flowers and

foliage to arrange themselves, or a Miss

Lily arrangement ready to enjoy. There is

no contract or minimum period and total

payment can be made in advance, or prior

to each delivery.

“The subscription can be for yourself or

someone else who would love to receive

fresh flowers, and with Mother’s Day

coming up, this could be an ideal gift – and

one that keeps on giving – for your Mum.”

As well as working from her home

studio, Sandy takes her flowers to various

locations in her mobile flower trailer,

Connie. She can be found at Market@254,

West Melton every Saturday, as well as

in Cashmere Road, at the bottom of

Hackthorne Rd, and Cathedral Square on

various days.

To place an order, call 021 342924,

Waihora eye top of pool rugby clash

• By Jacob Page

AN EARLY season top of pool

A clash between defending

champions Waihora and

Southern will be the highlight

of round three of the combined

country rugby competition on

Saturday.

Both teams maintained their

unbeaten starts to the season

over the weekend, with Waihora

outlasting Kaiapoi away from

home 21-8, thanks to two tries to

Will Hurst, while Southern ran

rampant in a 64-7 victory over

Ashley at Ashley Lower Grounds.

Springston retained top spot

in pool B with a comfortable

32-16 win against Southbridge at

Springston Domain.

The hosts had the services

of Crusaders loosie Mitchell

Dunshea for the first 40min but

had to fight back to claim the win

after trailing early in the second

half. Springston have had two

bonus point wins to start the

season and share the lead in pool

B with Glenmark-Cheviot, which

made it two from two, easily

accounting for Methven 45-0 at

Cheviot.

Springston will host third place

Rakaia on Saturday in the pick of

the pool B clashes.

Two Ellesmere teams share

the lead in pool C, with Lincoln

and Prebbleton each on 10 points

after contrasting wins. Lincoln

held off Oxford 29-26 for a bonus

point win at Oxford Oval, while

Prebbleton comfortably downed

Saracens at home 36-18, thanks

to 13 points from George Wigley

BATTLE: Southbridge’s Daryl Lamborn attempts to break the

tackle of Tim Shennan.

SPORT

and two tries each from Cam

Hay and Richard Ferguson.

Darfield remain unbeaten in

Pool A after a dominant second

half display to beat Hornby 62-14

at Darfield Domain.

Hornby took it to them in the

first half and only trailed by a

point at halftime before Darfield

piled on 47 unanswered points in

the final 40min.

Burnham Dunsandel Irwell got

their first win in the same pool

after a 30-10 win over Hampstead

at Dunsandel Domain, thanks

in part to three yellow cards for

Hampstead and a dominant BDI

scrum.

Rolleston are still looking for

their first competition points

after being beaten by Rakaia

24-14 in their pool B encounter

at Rakaia Domain, in spite of two

tries from Max Sheck.

West Melton got their pool

C campaign on track after

winning a tight encounter with

Hurunui 26-24 at West Melton

Domain. The home team were

held scoreless in the first half and

trailed 24-0 at halftime before

four second half tries saw them

snatch an unlikely victory. The

result means Hurunui is the only

team without a win in pool C

after two weeks.

Southbridge will host

Prebbleton in the crossover game

this weekend.

Lincoln Uni’s second half comeback produces ‘thrilling’ win

Jim Doyle reports on how

Lincoln University went at

the weekend

•Lincoln University 34 v Old

Boys 29, Bob Deans

What a game. Two sets of

abrasive young men went at

each other like wildcats. Out of

the spillage came some thrilling

rugby, with nine tries.

Lincoln trailed 7-15 at the

break, and without six players

who were on New Zealand

Universities duty, looked likely

to struggle further.

The Rams struck soon after

half-time through Dom Devine,

who had come on as substitute

hooker. When Sam Gilbert

crossed a few minutes later, the

Rams had the lead.

But they couldn’t keep Old

Boys out of it. Impressive

second-five Lupeti Fihaki

dashed through to score after

65min before reserve hooker

Shilo Klein broke down the left

touch to give Old Boys a bonus

point almost at the death.

Gilbert’s two tries were the

game-breakers. Cullen Grace

created the first, holding the

ball at the back of a steadily

advancing scrum. Twenty

metres out, he broke brilliantly

then fired a long pass to Gilbert

ranging on the left.

In a superb counter-attack,

the ball went from Gilbert to

Fletcher Morgan to substitute

John Borland and back to

Gilbert for the touchdown.

Lincoln University’s Ish

Perkins scored the first try of the

match.

Josh Bokser had a big game

for the Rams, this time at lock.

Ngane Punivai was tightly

marked and he did very well

under pressure to make sure the

Rams were on the front foot.

Lincoln University went down

19-40 to Old Boys in the premier

reserve curtainraiser but earned

kudos for never saying die as the

second half unfolded.

Lincoln University 34 (Sam

Gilbert 2, Ish Perkins, Dom

Devine, James Coull tries;

Gilbert 2 conv, pen; Fletcher

Morgan, conv) beat Old Boys 29

(Jaron Chamberlain, Connor

Collins, Lupeti Fihaki, Shilo

Klein tries; Alex Harford 3 conv,

pen). HT: 7-15. Sin-bin: Gilbert.

Kirkwood Intermediate

School of Choice

Celebrating Kirkwood House

Captains for 2019

Year 7 Camp

Our Year 7 pupils have recently

attended a camp at Purau Bay.

This is a great way for the children

to get to know each other.

Canadian canoeing was my favourite part of camp, it

was really fun racing each other. We enjoyed playing

football, the game predator and kick the can. It was

a great way to get to know each other and I hope this

camp continues for years to come. We had the most

amazing parent helpers which we really enjoyed. We

also learnt to cooperate with each other and it gave us

an opportunity to get to know our class mates better.

From the left: Jakub I, Sofia M, Ariel S, Elham N, Callum S, Emanuela M,

Carsyn W, Sophie M

House Captains for Mansfield/Hillary

Callum - Ex Prebbleton School I love Kirkwood Intermediate because

there are a lot of opportunities for sport and leadership. I would like to

make the Basket A Team and look forward to experiencing the Chinese

culture when I travel to China on the school trip. I wanted to be House

Captain to improve my leadership skills and so I can be a good role model

for the school.

Emanuela - Ex Clearview Primary Kirkwood provides many different

opportunities for us to experience. I will like to work on achieving an allround

elite Blue which is part of our Kirkwood Blues Awards. My goal in

Year 7 was to show my leadership skills in Year 8.

House Captains for Sheppard/Freyberg

Carsyn - Ex West Spreydon I enjoy Kirkwood because it has so many

opportunities. This year, I would like to earn another Blues Award as well

as learn as much as I can. This year I want to help others and ensure

everyone is happy.

Sophie M - Ex Halswell Primary School I love the many opportunities

available at Kirkwood and I would like to be involved as much as possible

while being a good role model. I will enjoy being a great leader and making

Sheppard/Freyberg the best house.

House Captains for Britten/Te Kanawa

Jakub - Ex Rolleston School Kirkwood Intermediate School has a great

atmosphere, with amazing pupils and staff. There are so many opportunities

you can do and no one judges you. This year I would love to get an allround

elite from the Blues Awards system. I am also looking forward to

the trip to China and learning about their culture. I would like to be a good

role model for everyone and gain more skills in leadership. I look forward to

helping others.

Sofia M - Ex Oaklands School I love Kirkwood as there are a lot of great

opportunities. The teachers are awesome and you get to try new things to

challenge yourself. This year I would like to achieve good grades, learn a lot

and will look forward to a brilliant final year. I was inspired by our last year’s

House Captains and I would like to inspire the Year 7 pupils.

House Captains for Rutherford/Batten

Ariel - Ex Edmonton Primary (Auckland) I Love the opportunities made

available at Kirkwood Intermediate School. I would like to be involved in

basketball and I will look forward to learning all about China when I visit later

on in the year.

Elham - Ex Gilberthorpe School I love everything about Kirkwood

Intermediate School, especially Technology and winter sport. However, my

favourite part is the Library and school hall. My goal this year is to improve

in reading and writing, playing as many different sports as possible and to

have fun during my time at Kirkwood. I will enjoy this leadership role as I am

a confident speaker, I can be a good role model and I am a good adviser.

Abseiling was my

favourite part of camp

because it was fun, challenging

and a new experience. I thought

that I wouldn’t go the whole way down

but I did! It was my goat at camp. A

lot of friends in my class cheered for

me which was great support. Some of

the activities which I enjoyed were

abseiling, Canadian canoeing,

crab hunting and feeding

the chicks.

My favourite part of

camp was the Canadian

canoeing, although feeding the

eels was a lot of fun too. Other

camp activities were: abseiling;

pitching tents; playing sports; bush

walking; periwinkle hunting and

beach time. I have to say I prefer

camping rather than playing

on electronics all day.

I enjoy outdoor

activities and

adventures. I also really

liked the food and awesome

activities which I was able to

do. The Canadian canoeing

was my favourite. I also

enjoyed the games we

played.

Young golfer making her mark

• By Jacob Page

WEEDONS GOLFER Deanna

Matthews is winning open

tournaments at the age of 12.

Deanna won the Weedons

senior ladies championships,

shooting a two round score of 151

(75, 76) and winning the 36-hole

match-play final against Sarah

Lurajud 7 and 5 in the process.

“My putting went really well,

which was good because I’d been

doing a lot of practice during the

week and the greens were the

perfect speed for me,” she said.

She also won the 100th edition

of the Avondale Ladies Open last

month after shooting 81.

Deanna was thrilled to win on

her home course. “To score what

I did and to putt so well made me

really happy.”

Deanna, who attends Christchurch

South Intermediate, has

already represented Canterbury

at under-19 level.

She trains with coach Wayne

Davies at the Riccarton Park Golf

Complex.

Deanna said she has played

golf since she first picked up a

children’s modified driver four

years ago.

“I just picked up a golf club and

started hitting golf balls and I

noticed I didn’t miss one.”

She now has a 4.3 handicap.

She said her fellow Weedons club

members always make her feel

welcome.

She hopes to one day play

professionally. “For now, I want

to improve my chipping.”

• By Jacob Page

ELLESMERE College deputy

head student leader Sarah

McClure (left) finished her

secondary school triathlon career

the way she wanted.

She was third in the under-19

class at the national triathlon

championships in New

Plymouth.

She finished in a time of 56min

41sec – just 4sec off the silver

medal and more than 1.5min

behind overall winner Olivia

Cummings.

“I was really happy with how

my race went and I was hoping

to podium but I wasn’t expecting

it,” she said.

“It was my last year at school

nationals so I wanted to end it

like this.”

She often thinks about her

achievements so far. “It makes me

feel really proud of myself,” she

said.

Deanna will represent Canterbury

at the three-day under-19

The 17-year-old finished

seventh in the same event last

year.

Sarah was able to make the

most of a strong 600m ocean

swim in which she came out of

the water first.

She dropped back to second

during the 15km cycle leg but was

able to maintain her momentum

in the 4km run.

She said swimming is her

strength. She has represented

Canterbury in the pool at South

Island level as a long distance

freestyle swimmer.

“I always enjoyed swimming

and running, which started at

primary school,” she said. “The

more I did it, the more I liked it.”

She has competed in triathlons

since her first Weet-Bix triathlon

at age seven. She said she would

“I’d like to win the under-13

gross and then whatever happens

after that would be a bonus.”

Podium send off for Ellesmere College triathlete

like to continue her training

when she attends Otago

University next year. “I don’t

have set goals but I want to do my

best while I continue to enjoy it

because that’s important to me.”

She currently swims, cycles and

runs four times each a week and

is a member of the Canterbury

Triathlon Academy.

“It’s important to balance

everything as best you can

because a race may come down

to a sprint to the finish line,” she

said.

Sarah said she tries to

overcome her physical pain

during races with mental

toughness.

“When I get really sore. I

try to keep pushing through it

because I know that’s when I’m

improving,” she said.

Selwyn United

need to lift

form on the

football pitch

• By Jacob Page

SELWYN UNITED will look

to get their Mainland Premier

League football campaign back

on track against Western at

Foster Park on Saturday.

A win will be vital to their

confidence after they were

beaten 4-1 by Nelson Suburbs in

Nelson over the weekend.

Coach Chris Brown said

his team created plenty of

opportunities but did not

capitalise on

them. “It was a

disappointing

result,” he said.

“We matched

them for long

periods of the

game, but when

we gave them

opportunities,

they were able

Chris Brown

to make the most of them. They

scored two nice goals and we

gave them two.”

Brown said the scoreline

suggested it was a one-sided

game, but he felt they pressed up

the field as well as they could.

However, their defensive frailties

let them down, he said.

“It was individual errors once

again, and not from the same

people.”

“We’re on a rotation at the

moment it would seem and it’s at

key moments of the game.”

Captain Dan Ede was able to

pull a goal back late in the game.

Brown said Nic Kittelty

impressed defensively, while

Caleb Emmens continued his

strong form in the midfield.

Brown admits his team will

need to produce a complete

90min performance to defeat

Western on Saturday.

“We need to lift our

concentration levels at certain

times, and if we do that, then

we can certainly get a result,” he

said.

IF YOU’VE hankered after

an Audi Q7 sport utility

vehicle but thought that it

didn’t have that X-factor in

terms of style, Audi have

another offering for you –

the Q8.

The Q8 represents

everything you’ll find in

the Q7, yet it is packaged

in a coupe-type design just

distancing itself from the

traditional SUV market.

Landing at $149,900 in

base model form, the Q8

also competes roughly on

price, the Q7 lists from

$133,400. However, the

evaluation car was carrying

quite a bit of extra kit in the

form of an S-Line package,

it would sell for around

$160,000.

That aside, the Q8 stands

out for its style and that

presence doesn‘t end with

its looks from the exterior,

the interior is gorgeous,

nothing has been left to

chance and it features the

latest in technological

gadgetry.

I particularly like the

haptic touch screens, they

simply respond to the

fingertip with a gentle jolt

as they activate, offering

the user the reassurance

something physical has

taken place. The screens are

also big with large display

graphics, just the ticket for

those whose eyes demand

clarity.

Column space doesn’t

allow for a full description

of what the Q8 offers, but

to say it leaves nothing

to chance; comfort and

convenience features

are in abundance and it

incorporates a significant

array of safety features –

passive and reactive, and

if you add in the Quattro

four-wheel-drive system

that could also been seen a

major safety initiative.

Powering the Q8 is a V6,

turbocharged diesel engine.

It displaces 2967cc and is

rated by Audi at 210kW

with an amazing 600Nm of

torque, the latter developed

strongly between 2250rpm

and 3250rpm.

While these figures

are quite impressive in

themselves, what stands

out most for me is the

performance gleaned from

a vehicle that weighs in

quite tubby at just over

two-tonne.

Audi claim a 6.3sec

burst to 100km/h from a

standstill, while it simply

launches through a

Motoring

manufacturing process.

highway overtake with a

mid-range urgency that is

absolutely delightful, an 80-

120km/h time of 4.4sec can

be expected.

Audi also claim a 6.3-litre

per 100km (45mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage

figure. During my time

in the evaluation car the

display graphics were

constantly reading around

7.2l/100km (39mpg),

with a 5l/100km (56mpg)

instantaneous figure sitting

at a steady 100km/h, the

engine working over quite

relaxed at just 1250rpm.

• Price –Audi Q8,

$157,890

• Dimensions –

width, 2000mm;

• Configuration – V6,

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.3sec

• Fuel usage –

6.3l/100km

These are all outstanding

results, and ones which

will satisfy all buyers, the

Q8 is quick but it is also

economical.

Much like the many

German cars which are

arriving here these days,

Audi have incorporated the

mild hybrid 48v electrical

system into the Q8. It’s

not a hybrid as you would

relate to in, say, Toyota’s

Prius, but it is there to

garner, store and distribute

electrical energy, thereby

alleviating some load from

the engine.

I’ve never driven an Audi

with the Quattro system

that I haven’t enjoyed,

there’s just something

about the technology

which makes it one of

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Gardening

the standout four-wheeldrive

systems. There is feel

and feedback within the

steering that is constantly

involving, and taking into

account that at almost 5m

there’s a lot of vehicle to get

through a corner, the Q8

handles with dignity.

A lot of that is down

to the air suspension

set-up which delivers

a perfect ride and

uncompromised handling

qualities.

I took the test car west

to the Malvern Hills and

enjoyed the way you can

push into a corner and

yet still feel composed.

Quality Continental sport

specification tyres help, at

285/40 x 22in there’s more

rubber on the road than

there is on the racetrack

at Bathurst. The Q8 sticks

solidly on the road surface,

the handling belies its

bulk.

Even with all of these

sporty qualities, it must

also be remembered the Q8

is still the practical family

wagon. Sure, it’s only a fiveseater,

but those who are

privileged to ride in the Q8

will be treated to a full dose

of luxury. The cargo area

is cavernous and on board

comfort isn’t jeopardised

thanks to its generous

proportions.

The Q8 doesn’t come at

a budget price, and it is a

big outlay, but bear in

mind that it sits on much

the same platform and

shares much the same

driveline that makes the

Volkswagen Touareg so

tempting.

The Q8, Q7, Tourareg

and Porsche Cayenne

are all based on similar

mechanicals.

That being the case, the

choice is overwhelming,

but if you are buying on

style and design only, the

Q8 is the clear winner.

A burst of colour for winter

• By Henri Ham

NEXT WEEK Easter

is here, and this year it

also marks the middle of

autumn.

Although I still feel like

I’m only just farewelling

summer, it’s nice to be

able to slacken off from

my watering programme

and think about my winter

garden.

Luckily the end of

warmer weather doesn’t

also mean the end of bright

colourful flowers in the

garden. Now’s the perfect

time to inject new bursts of

colour – and the easiest way

is to plant some pansies.

The brightly coloured

overlapping petals of the

pansy cheer up any garden

spot. They’re cute, yet

bold, come in a rainbow of

colours and, best of all, are

one of the easiest flowers to

grow.

Pansies flower right from

autumn through spring, often

when it feels like there’s

not much colour happening

in your garden. They’re

extremely hardy – surviving

frosts, wind and rain. Just

make sure you get them in

before it gets too cold, and

you’ll see that they are truly

a plant-and-forget flower.

They make great garden

beds, borders, and are perfect

for pots. Pansies also

look really attractive when

planted in between larger

plants.

Giant pansies span up

to 10cm across and grow

slightly higher than your

average pansies too – up to

20cm high. Mixed varieties

are perfect for an array

of pots, hanging baskets or

as a multi-coloured garden

border.

When you’ve got your

seedlings, look for a spot in

your garden that receives

morning (or all day) sun,

with good drainage. After

our hot summer, dig in

some compost and fertiliser

to enrich the soil.

To plant your seedlings,

Give a good initial watering,

Once they’re flowering,

The more you pick, the

Take the time to repair your lawn

Fire rages, homes at risk

THE HOT summer months can

take its toll on your lawn, leaving

it a little ravaged and in desperate

need of care.

Autumn or spring are typically

the best times to tackle any lawn

problems and give it a little TLC

to bring it back to life. This is

because the soil is warm and there

is adequate rainfall to aid even

germination of the grass seed.

A uniform green healthy lawn

is something many people strive

for and the secret comes down to

fertilising regularly and adequately

with lawn fertiliser, in conjunction

with regular watering.

Established lawns should be

fertilised with good quality lawn

fertiliser at three to four-weekly

intervals, typically from March

until the end of April.

Fertiliser lowers the PH of the

soil which simply means the grass

grows better than the weeds! It is

absolutely critical that the lawn is

well watered after each application.

In spring, you can begin

fertilising again from October

until Christmas (avoiding the hot

summer months when lawns are

stressed due to the heat). If you

have moss in your lawn after winter,

try spreading iron sulphate on

to the area and watering it in. This

is quite a common practice to

treat moss, and it will also darken

the colour of your lawn.

GROWTH: Mix grass seeds to cope with summer and winter conditions, seed should germinate in seven to 10 days.

If you are considering laying a

new lawn, it’s important to choose

the right grass that will suit your

lawns function and soil type. In

terms of function, consider; any

pets, will children play on it, will

it be used as a thoroughfare or

just admired?

Your soil type also plays a major

part; is it free draining or waterlogged?

You may need to improve

the drainage first. You may also

need to add in some gypsum

to help improve this, and when

mowing your lawn, it’s best to

catch your clippings and remove

them.

To create an attractive durable

lawn all year round it’s a good

idea to mix grass seeds, as some

do well in summer and others do

well in winter. Your local garden

centre can give some advice on

the type of grass that suits your

needs, soil and climate.

In large areas where grass is either

non-existent or poor quality;

top soil should be spread and new

lawn seed sown.

Sprinkle the seed in an even

pattern walking away from the

starting point so you are not

standing on the seed. Apply grass

seed to the surface of the soil, do

not cover with top soil as the seed

is very fine and will not germinate

well if covered.

Grass seed should germinate

(depending on soil temperatures

and moisture) seven to 10 days

after sowing. When the newly

emerged grass has reached 80mm

high, the first cut can be made.

With successive cuts, you can

lower the mowers setting to

eventually reach the grass height

you desire.

If your lawn has smaller brown

spots or is a bit patchy, repair the

infected areas by removing grass

and soil around the infected area

(at least 15cm beyond it). Add

lawn patching to the area and

lightly water.

Regardless of which task

you embark on, it’s essential to

maintain constant soil moisture

so the new seeds germinate and

the lawn in general greens up and

becomes healthier overall.

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.”

Easily-managed quality landholding

Fully irrigated by pivot and sprinklers, this 62.1649ha property has quality infrastructure and favourable soils and

would be the perfect first farm. It is well-set-up with a central lane and a substantial amount of new fencing, which

enables the current owner to work off-farm. A mixture of quality Lismore and Templeton soils allows both high

stock growth-rates and impressive crop yields. This productive property has been producing potatoes, peas and

barley, grazing dairy heifers and producing supplements. Infrastructure includes hay and implement sheds, an older

wool shed, cattle yards and a tidy, two-bedroom home in an established garden. Handy to Darfield and an easy

commute to Christchurch, inspection is a must.

Browsing show homes is a fantastic way

to get you thinking about practicalities,

needs, aesthetics and your wish list! Here

are a few consideration’s to help spark your

planning process.

• What is your exterior style? What kind

of homes do you like? Look around and

take a mental note of what you are drawn

to most.

• What kind of exterior materials do you

like? Once you’ve worked out the look

you like, research what materials are

available and find out about durability.

• How will you use your house? It’s

important to most people to have a good

indoor/outdoor flow and attractive,

sheltered outdoor living. Imagine your

home in various seasons.

• Landscaping is important. Look around

and consider what you like and don’t like.

Are you a structured formal garden type

or do you like a contemporary native

style?

• Sustainability and future-proofing

aren’t just buzzwords anymore. It’s

very important for your new home to

be environmentally friendly. Research

insulation requirements, solar hot water

heating, ventilation options and new

technology to ensure your home will be

affordable to run.

• Interior décor is really exciting. This is

where show homes can really help you get

to know current trends, colours, beautiful

furnishings and furniture. Collect home

magazines and figure out what you’d love

to emulate.

• Also, pause to give thought to

architectural components inside. Do you

remember a raised ceiling? What kind of

finishing do top homes use and which

styles are you drawn to?

• Heating is also a consideration. Have a

look at what show homes are offering.

• Kitchens form the heart of the house.

Show homes give you insight into the

latest styles, materials and storage

facilities available.

• Bathrooms are another big component.

They need to be as luxurious as you can

make them, so start dreaming.

Kitchens form the heart of

the house. Show homes

give you insight into the

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Showhome a trendsetter

A must see and sure to inspire is

Generation Homes’ Branthwaite

showhome where attention to detail from

the home’s interior décor to its exterior

presentation, gives it the wow factor.

Clad with large masonry block in a

stack bond pattern and complemented

with cedar, this home illustrates how a

corner section can be maximised.

As one walks through the home, the

2.55 stud gives a spacious feel while the

three-bedroom, two living area home,

serves up lots of building ideas.

The living spaces have both practicality

and a luxurious feel. The formal lounge

has double cavity sliders seamlessly

tucking away for entertaining or when

wanting a larger area, while bifolds

open out to a sheltered yet sunny deck

allowing the outdoors into the home on

warm days. Positioning of the house has

also allowed for a stunning private yard.

The kitchen is impressive with its black

sink, combo oven/gas hob, smoked

mirror glass splashback, gloss laminate

bench tops with an acrylic edge which

gives a 3D effect and tower faucet. There

is also a walk-in pantry.

Black joinery and hardware is a feature

throughout the home, contrasted in the

main bathroom by a free standing white

bath.

“There’s been lots of interest in the

black and white colour scheme, as well

as features like the skylights which

bring extra light into the home,” says

Evan Beker, Joint Venture Partner of

Generation Homes Christchurch.

“People are looking to replicate these

ideas. They’ve seen black tap ware and

light switch plates in stores, however

seeing them fitted in a home is quite

inspirational.”

The master bedroom also stimulates

the imagination with additional

wardrobe storage for those with a

penchant for clothes. A feeling of

separation is gained with the ensuite

tucked behind the walk-in robe, and

slider accessing the deck and garden.

Within the rather spacious ensuite is a

large tiled shower with glass door, double

vanities and toilet.

The main toilet room has a small wash

basin while the laundry is tucked away in

the garage. The home also has a ducted

heating system.

Generation Homes’ Branthwaite

showhome demonstrates good

workmanship and clever design, showing

how a house under 200sqm can stand

out. At 193 square metres, this home is

ideal for a family, couple or someone

living alone. It is a delight to view with so

many innovative features deserves more

than just one visit.
