Financial woes force college

to make ‘difficult decisions’

• By Anan Zaki

A MAJOR school in the district

is facing financial issues, forcing

it to make “difficult decisions.”

Ellesmere College has been

running at a loss since 2016.

Principal

Ronan Bass

confirmed to

Selwyn Times

the school’s

struggles were

partly due to

about $78,000

unpaid by

Ronan Bass

parents in

course fees and

course donations.

The details were sent to parents

in an email last week.

Mr Bass told the Selwyn Times

on Sunday there was no risk of

the school closing. But in the

email he did not rule out the

school being put into statutory

management.

That would mean all financial

decisions would be out of the

school’s control and managed by

an “external agent.”

“This is something we wish to

avoid,” Mr Bass said.

In the email to parents, Mr

Bass said the school has been

in discussion with auditors and

Ministry of Education.

“We have been informed by

TROUBLE: Ellesmere College principal Ronan Bass said the school could be placed under

statutory financial management if its current situation does not change dramatically.

our auditors and the Ministry

of Education this situation cannot

continue and there is a real

possibility of being placed under

statutory financial management

if our financial situation does not

dramatically change in the very

near future,” he said.

The Ministry of Education said

its records show the school ran a

deficit of ($70,579) in 2016 and a

deficit of ($17,170) in 2017.

Mr Bass refused to give Selwyn

Times details about its 2018

financial report and the forecast

for this year. The ministry said it

is yet to receive the 2018 reports.

Mr Bass said in the email he

had to make “difficult leadership

decisions’’ due to the ongoing

losses.

“This has included not

replacing some staff who have

left, amalgamating staffing

positions, reducing subjects we

have on offer, increasing class

sizes and more aggressively

marketing for international

students,” he said.

Ministry of Education deputy

secretary sector enablement

and support Katrina Casey told

Selwyn Times that the ministry

is “satisfied the school is not

currently in financial hardship”

and a formal intervention has

not been proposed or deemed

necessary at this time.

“However, we appreciate that

additional unforeseen costs

could impact on its financial

position which may at some

point mean we need to discuss a

financial intervention with the

board of trustees,” Ms Casey

said.

The school’s board of trustees

chairman Mark Maddren told

Selwyn Times: “It’s not much

of a storm to be fair, it’s quite

common for schools to be on a

paper deficit.”

our great history

SELWYN TIMES

ELLESMERE COLLEGE is under the

pump.

On page 1 today, we reveal unpaid fees

from parents, course donations and other

unspecified problems are continuing to

impact on the school.

Principal Ronan Bass has ruled out closure, thank the

proverbial for that, but he hasn’t ruled out the school going into

statutory management.

That would mean financial decisions are made by an outside

party – and sometimes that isn’t a bad thing.

Parents were emailed last week. It didn’t take long for

someone to tell us, which is what we’re here for – to tell our

readers as much as possible about what is going on in the

district.

I hope the school can work through its problems.

E-scooters mooted for Rolleston

• By Anan Zaki

LIME SCOOTERS could hit

the footpaths and roads of the

Rolleston next month.

The district council is currently

assessing an application

from the scooter operator Lime

for a trial in the town.

Mayor Sam Broughton met

with representatives from Lime

last month and hopes to see

them in the district in about

four weeks.

Lime scooters are batterypowered

which are activated by

a smart phone app.

District council environmental

services manager Tim Harris

said the trial application was for

200 scooters in Rolleston. The

application was filed on March

15.

Mr Harris said safety is one

of the issues that the council

is considering and it has not

reached a final view on the matter

or the application itself.

“Council staff are aiming to

have a recommendation on the

application for council at the

earliest meeting available,” he

said.

The next council meeting is on

May 8.

Mr Broughton said from

his discussions with Lime

representatives, the company

indicated it wanted to extend its

Christchurch operations.

“So they wouldn’t be operating

here independently of that

[Christchurch]. It will be about

using existing resources they

have in Christchurch,” he said.

WHIZZ

AROUND:

Lime

scooters

have been in

Christchurch

since

October

last year.

They could

soon be on

Rolleston.

Mr Broughton is looking

forward to seeing the shared

electric scooters in the district –

if it’s approved.

“I’ve used them in Christchurch

and they are great to get

around on. They provide an

alternative to walking and driving,”

he said.

“I think they are convenient

and pretty easy to use.”

Mr Broughton said the trial

will outline whether Lime scooters

would be feasible or not in

the district.

Rolleston Residents’ Association

chairwoman Leonie

MacLachlan said Lime scooters

are a good idea.

“How people use them,

whether on a footpath or on

the road I think should really

still be up for discussion,” Mrs

MacLachlan said.

The residents’ association is

likely to discuss the scooters at

its next meeting on April 29, she

said.

Lime scooters were first

launched in Auckland and

Christchurch in October last

year. It has since been introduced

in a number of other locations

across the country.

Since its launch, it has drawn

a number of safety concerns

which resulted the scooters

being temporarily

Poll supports intersection lights

• By Anan Zaki

MORE CALLS have been made

to upgrade a controversial

intersection in West Melton.

Residents took part in an

online poll last week – quizzing

people about their views on

the long running subject of

improving the intersection at

State Highway

73 and Weedons

Ross Rd.

In the poll, 396

people called

for traffic lights;

102 wanted a

roundabout;

seven an

overpass; one

wanted to create

a four-way stop

sign; and one to

do nothing.

West Melton

Residents’

Association

member Bruce

Russell said

residents are preparing a

petition to take to Parliament,

which will call for traffic lights

to be installed.

The poll indicated residents’

desire to improve safety, he said.

“We’re looking at doing a

petition that we can present.

BUSY: West Melton residents want to install traffic lights at the

intersection of State Highway 73 and Weedons Ross Rd.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

We’ve formed a small

committee to look after it,” Mr

Russell said.

He hopes to start collecting

signatures this month.

The intersection is managed

by the New Zealand Transport

Agency – which operates the

state highway network.

Selwyn Times reported in

October that proposed upgrades

for the intersection weren’t

included in NZTA’s national

land transport programme for

2018-21, which was released last

year.

An NZTA spokeswoman said

it is aware of residents’ concerns,

but there is no change in the

priority for traffic signals at the

intersection.

“While the projects listed

are not currently indicated

for funding in this three-year

period 2018-21, they are still

retained in the programme

should funding become

available in the future or their

relative priority increase,” the

spokeswoman said.

Mr Russell has been

campaigning to improve the

intersection for more than 10

years. He said the road is too

narrow for a roundabout and

overpass, so traffic lights are the

only viable option.

Weedons Ward district

councillor Jeff Bland said NZTA

needs to realise West Melton is

in a unique situation.

“West Melton was just a

small little nothing. There

was a pub there and a few

houses. The problem was, and

still is, you couldn’t see the

houses when you’re travelling

on State Highway 73 either

going towards or away from

Christchurch,” Cr Bland

said.

Traffic lights would slow the

traffic down, he said.

Cr Bland intends to sign the

petition if it goes ahead.

Mr Russell said he doesn’t

want to wait for a fatality before

action is taken.

“We’re going to get a

tremendous amount of traffic

coming up Weedons Ross Rd

when the motorway opens,” he

said.

COST: Petrol stations across the district were charging $2.30 a litre for 91

and $1.73 a litre for diesel on Monday.

Fuel prices close

in on record high

• By Julia Evans

PETROL PRICES are

rising across the district,

as they head towards last

year’s record high of almost

$2.50 a litre.

On Monday

petrol stations

were charging

$2.30 a litre for

unleaded 91 up

from $2.26 a litre

last week.

Diesel also

increased from

$1.67 to $1.73 a

litre.

Automobile

Association

principal adviser of

regulation and PetrolWatch

spokesman Mark Stockdale

said prices are rising

around the country.

“What the AA has

observed is international

commodity prices have

been increasing over the

last few weeks or so.”

But he was unable to say

whether petrol would reach

last year’s record prices.

“It’s impossible to predict

what will happen. There

are various international

factors that influence the

price at the pump and

the exchange rate is not

helping,” Mr Stockdale

said.

“We shouldn’t expect

prices to get down to $1.50

like some people might

remember. Those days are

gone.”

A Z Energy spokesperson

said it buys crude oil,

refined petrol and

diesel on the

international

market.

“Recently,

the price of

oil on the

international

market has

risen, resulting

in an increase

in the price at

the pump.”

A BP

spokesperson

said the recent

price changes are a result

of factors that are out of its

control, including increases

in the cost of product and

weakening of the New

Zealand dollar.

“We are really conscious

that fuel can be a

reasonable proportion of a

household budget, and we

review BP Connect prices

every day so our prices are

as competitive as possible.”

The rising cost of

petrol comes as Gull has

announced it will move

into the South Island.

Its first site will open in

Maheno, south of Oamaru

on State Highway 1, in

July. It will open others in

Christchurch and greater

Canterbury over the

following months.

Mark Stockdale

Mr Stockdale said

Gull’s expansion into

the South Island is good

news for motorists who

could expect more price

competition.

However, cheaper

stations like Gull and NPD

still have to raise prices, he

said.

“Taxes will ensure that

prices remain relatively

high.”

Energy and Resources

Minister Megan Woods

said she is concerned about

petrol prices.

“A major report from

Ministry of Business,

Innovation and

Employment found there

was evidence to suggest

the market wasn’t fully

competitive and that

consumers, especially in

the South Island, were

paying over the odds for

their fuel. As a proud

South Islander, that’s not

acceptable to me.”

Dr Woods said the

Government has moved

urgent legislation through

to enable the Commerce

Commission to investigate

fuel companies, compel

them to release evidence

and investigate if the

market is working

properly.

“That process is under

way now and we are

awaiting the results of their

investigation.”

EVERY ANZAC Day

New Zealanders gather to

commemorate the sacrifices

our service men and women

made while fighting in overseas

conflicts, defending the interests

of our country.

What is seldom remembered at

these events is those who served

on the home front, defending

our shores from the threat of

invasion.

During World War 2 New

Zealand did not have a regular

army and the defence of the

nation was reliant on the

part-time Territorial Army and

air force, along with our very

own ‘Dad’s Army’ – the Home

Guard.

Every township in the country

had its Home Guard unit that

was a semi-military organisation

established to assist in the active

defence of the local area in the

event of an enemy attack. The

Selwyn District was no different,

with the units within the

Ellesmere, Springs and Malvern

counties forming the Selwyn

(East) Battalion.

At this time, the majority of

the fit men of military service

age were either serving overseas

in combat zones or conscripted

into the Territorials from the

the Home Guard units were

World War 1, too old for active

service overseas and those who

work, such as farming, mining

and manufacturing.

usually mustered 30 volunteers

on weekly parades out of a roll

of 40. Petrol scarcity, a shortage

of farm labour and the distance

the men had to travel to attend,

made it difficult to regularly get

a full unit muster. Many had to

cycle or walk within a 10-mile

radius to attend weekly parades

and training.

The purpose of the Home

Guard was to defend a certain

area of local territory from Japanese

invasion; a threat that was

feared from late 1941 through to

late 1943, after which a ‘standdown’

for home defence was

announced and Home Guard

parades were reduced to quarterly

events.

When training, the Home

Guard underwent a systematic

programme of marching,

rifle drill, musketry and field

exercises where its members

got to know every physical

feature of their particular area

to defend.

The majority of the rural

guardsmen already knew the

areas well as most of them

worked on the land and had

lived all their lives in the area.

An example of this can be seen

in the jingoism of that

time from an article in the

Ellesmere Guardian in June

1942: ‘The Guard possesses a

solid backbone of competent

enthusiasts – men who realise

that there may be a time when

their own homes and acres may

be threatened. If that time

should come, no defenders

will be harder to dislodge by

an invader or more subtle in

counter-attack, than the sparetime

soldiers who train on their

own fields and hills.’

In 1942 there was a real

fear that an enemy force

would effect a landing along

Kaiteriti Spit and move inland

and over Gebbies Pass to

capture the port of Lyttelton.

A Canterbury Defence Anti-

Invasion Plan was established

which relied on using Territorial

troops and Home Guard units,

many of them being men from

the Selwyn District.

One of these men was Ted

Sunckell, a 36-year-old married

farmer from Brookside.

Ted had been a member of the

Doyleston Home Guard platoon

before volunteering to join the

8th Independent Mounted Rifle

Squadron. This mounted unit of

about 80 men was unique in that

BATTLE READY: The 8th Independent Mounted Rifles on a charge at Birdlings Flat 1941.

it was established specifically to

defend the hill country of Banks

Peninsula.

Locally known as the ‘Hill Billies,’

the Independent Mounted

Rifles was mainly made up of

farmers and farm labourers who

were experienced horsemen and

who knew the area well. Some

of the officers and NCOs were

veterans of the Mounted Rifle

Brigade from World War 1 and a

number were also noted lecturers

and farm managers from

Canterbury Agricultural College

(now Lincoln University), such

as troop commander Lieutenant

I.W. Weston, Jack Calder,

Malcolm Burns (later Sir) and

Richard Bevin. Many were from

families who are still prevalent

in the district and Banks Peninsula

– Hutchinson, Thacker,

Robinson, Waghorn, Wright and

Shuttleworth.

In the age of mechanised

warfare this mounted unit was

considered antiquated. The

soldiers’ uniforms and accoutrements

were the same old style as

the Mounted Rifles from World

War 1.

Nine such squadrons were

established throughout New

Zealand and were formed for

use in hill country where the

mechanised units of the Territorial

Forces would not be able to

operate freely. For that reason

recruiting was confined to those

men whose occupations made

them fit for such work. Recruiting

was also limited to married

men between the ages of 25 and

55 years and unmarried men between

the ages of 45 and 55. Such

volunteers also had to provide

their own horse and saddlery.

A camp for the Mounted Rifles

was first established at Birdlings

Flat in May 1941, but a more

permanent tented camp was later

transferred to the Motukarara

Racecourse. As part-time volunteers,

members of the unit were

only required to attend camp one

week a month during the period

of invasion threat, although they

kept their rifles and ammunition

at home to be ready if called

upon.

In reality, in the case of an

invasion the Home Guard were

only expected to give warning

and create some delay by making

road blocks to slow the enemy

advance, while the Mounted

Rifles were also expected to

delay an advance by seizing vital

defensive positions in the hills,

giving time for the better trained

Territorial units to react.

Fortunately, no invasion

occurred and these men did not

have to risk their lives in combat.

However, we should acknowledge

the dedication and willingness

they showed in preparing to

defend the district and country if

required.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Dairy plant open day

creams it in Darfield

ABOUT 550 people went

through the gates of Fonterra’s

Darfield site at its open day.

People queued at the gates

early for a rare chance to look

behind the scenes of the world’s

joint-largest milk dryer, a

distribution centre the size of

seven rugby fields, and the new

$150 million cream cheese plant,

a Fonterra spokeswoman said.

Fonterra general manager

operations Darfield and Upper

South Island Harriet Van Genne-

Knape said it was great to see a

good turn out.

“It was a little wet and cold but

that didn’t seem to deter anyone.

From the very young, to the

group from a local retirement

home, there was something of

interest to everyone,” she said.

“The kids loved getting into the

tankers and I hear our automated

forklifts and freshly-made cream

cheese were also a hit,” Mrs Van

Genne-Knape said.

The site’s open day event was

one of three held aroundNew

Zealand on April 6. With the cooperatives

Te Rapa and Edendale

sites also hosting visitors in

a bid to lift the lid on dairy

production.

A MOTH species that showed

up on the window at night a

fortnight ago was the apple

looper moth, Phrissogonus

laticostatus.

This introduced species is also

found in Australia and New

Caledonia.

It has a wingspan of 15mm and

males have a distinctive forwardpointing,

scaly tuffs

on their shoulders, resembling

the wing of

a pterodactyl.

usually flies

between

and March.

Males also have shiny black

scales on the underside of the

to be scent scales used during

courtship.

Moth colours can vary from

cream to brown

and they usually fly between

September and March.

Larvae feed on a wide range of

plants, including acacia, clematis,

hypericum, pohutakawa, olearia,

Come of Age – The Case for Elderhood in a Time of Trouble

Throughout history of human life on earth, we have learned from our elders.

Our lives and our communities have been strengthened by those who have come before us.

“Getting older is inevitable,

becoming an elder is a skill.”

– Stephen Jenkinson

In todays world as people strive for self-improvement we often lean towards therapists and life coaches to

gain our knowledge, yet there is a significant lack of intention to engage deeply with our elders as a key

component of our education. Elderhood today is often understood more in terms of its absence rather

than its presence.

It is often said that age carries wisdom, yet at a time when we have

more older people than we ever have before, why are there so

few elders among us? What constitutes an elder and how do we

re-engage with generational wisdom-sharing?

Stephen Jenkinson is one of the world’s most engaging

truth-tellers and philosophers on the topic of wisdom, death

and elderhood. Join us for this unique evening to explore how

our society can reconnect with the wisdom and humility of

elderhood. Suitable for any age.

In brief, Stephen Jenkinson, MTS, MSW teaches internationally

and is co-founder of The Orphan Wisdom School,

Ottawa Valley, Ontario, Canada. An award winning

author of Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul. Stephen

has also been a subject of the feature length documentary

film Griefwalker a lyrical, poetic portrait of his

work with dying people. www.orphanwisdom.com

Rolleston College learning leader

for languages Annie Mansfield

writes about a visit from Spanish

students

HOLA! BIENVENIDOS! At Rolleston

College we have been enjoying the

company of visitors from Spain over the

last couple of weeks.

Last year we established a sister

school relationship with the IES Luis

de Góngora, which is in Córdoba in the

Andalucia region in the south of Spain.

Our sister school is very different to

ours, it was built in 1577 and is located in

the central plaza of Córdoba, which is the

only city in the world to have four World

Heritage sites.

The school building is beautiful and

historic and has its own chapel.

During 2018, learners in our year

10 Spanish class began a friendship

with Spanish students. They enjoyed

sharing emails, study projects and

communicating online via social media.

On April 1, we welcomed our first

group of Spanish visitors to school, with a

traditional mihi whakatau. The students

were excited to meet each other in person

for the first time.

The group has enjoyed visits to the

gondola, the museum, the central city,

and a day in Wellington. We enjoyed a

the past two weeks.

Rolleston College

day in Akaroa, with both the Spanish and

New Zealand students working together

in double kayaks and giant stand-up

paddleboards.

It was fun to hear the group bonding

over the Spanish songs they all knew

and as teachers we enjoyed hearing La

Macarena and La Bamba, followed by

various Queen hits, belted out from the

back of the bus.

The Spanish students have also attended

some lessons at school, and as their

English is excellent, they were able to

get involved with the learning. It was

especially rewarding to see our learners

in the years 9, 10 and 11 Spanish classes

having the opportunity to practice their

Spanish with our guests.

They were able to ask a lot of questions

to find out about life in Spain and what

school is like there.

Said year 10 student Tate Hawker: “It

was interesting having the Spanish people

in our class and seeing how they reacted

in a different environment to what they

are used to. It was fun learning from

them and learning about their hobbies

and what they like to do.”

Sam Maccoll, also in year 10, said “I

thought it was pretty cool seeing how

they pronounced the Spanish. I asked

questions in Spanish, such as asking them

about their family and hobbies, and they

seemed to understand.”

With Canterbury experiencing

a hot summer after the wettest

winter on record, our weather

has certainly been extreme.

However, brave Cantabrians,

with verandas and adjustable

louvres from Stratco on our

side, we can take back control

of our unpredictable elements.

Steve Cain, Outdoor Product

Specialist at Stratco, is passionate

about their verandas and electronic

louvre systems “they add great

value to a home, families get

so much more use from their

outdoors, and the real estate

market recognises that value as

well”.

Steve says adding an adjustable

louvre system allows you to

control exactly how much sunlight

and breeze in, and protect from

rain as well.

Custom made to suit your

requirements and powder coated

to any colour, the louvre comes

standard with an electronic remote

control as well as a rain sensor

which gives you huge flexibility on

how to use the system.

The verandas are Stratco’s own

unique leading edge design and

componentry. Steve is pleased to

be able to offer a bespoke veranda

at the same price as a standard

product, because Stratco has

the design tools that enable the

veranda to be custom-designed to

your size, layout, and attachment

requirements.

The process is simple: Steve

will talk through the possibilities

with you and then measure and

quote, which is free with no

obligation. Stratco then designs,

manufactures, and installs the

verandas and louvres themselves.

It’s a one-stop-shop, with all the

project management and heavy

lifting taken care of, leaving you

hands free to thumb your nose at

our climate chaos.

HOMECOMING: Father and daughter enjoying time together after three days

apart.

Daddy’s home

WELL, I didn’t manage

that dream of a sleep-in.

But after three nights

away from Vittoria and

Laura, even being forced

awake before sunrise in my

own bed felt good.

As I said in my last

column, I was away

competing in the dragon

boat nationals at Lake

Karapiro (go Waimak)!

It was the longest I’ve

been away from Vittoria.

Although the break from

all-day, everyday parenting

was nice, I missed it like I

never thought I would.

One night I woke up in

the wee hours just freaking

out that I couldn’t find

Vittoria or even hear her.

It took me a while to chill

out and remember where

I was.

Is this something that

will just happen now?

Luckily this is 2019 so I

could use video calling to

see the family each day.

It was really cute seeing

how excited Vittoria got to

see my face.

She would do this little

jiggle, smile and giggle

dance before getting back

to whatever she was doing,

throwing little smiles my

way while Laura and I

talked.

Eventually she would,

however, try and hang up

the call. I guess you can

have too much dad.

I thought she would

just about explode when

I got home, but she was

way too engrossed in the

Wiggles when I got in the

door.

After her song finished

she started warming up to

me again and it wasn’t long

until she was back to being

cuddly and excited to be

around me.

I think out of the two

of them, Laura was most

excited to have me home.

The weekend had included

the unholy meeting of

arbitrary toddler routine

changes and the end of

VITTORIA

& Matt

daylight saving.

Not to mention poor

weather.

Nothing like being

trapped indoors with a

grumpy toddler who woke

you up multiple times

overnight before deciding

4am was playtime.

My wife is a saint.

Bubs and I reconnected

on a daddy/daughter day

with some friends over

from Australia at the

petting zoo Arion Farm.

Nothing quite like

being chased by ducks

and having a sheep try and

eat your hand, to rekindle

the spark of daddy’s-girlness.

Nippy Nick seals win

for Lincoln University

Jim Doyle reports

on how Lincoln

University went

against Christchurch

on Saturday

YOU COULD say Nick

Frost lived up to his name

in scoring the last try – but

the substitute lock was

more than just nippy.

He lit the afterburners

in a spectacular dash

from broken play 40m

out to well and truly

nail a convincing 33-7

win for the Rams over

Christchurch.

The Rams will be

satisfied with the win

against the only team to

beat them last year (once).

On Saturday, Christchurch

had the up-front grunt,

but not enough dash. Only

once did they breach the

Lincoln defence.

Talented young openside

flanker Tom Christie sliced

through easily to finish a

big siege on the Lincoln

line sparked by a driving

maul from a lineout 8min

from half-time.

The visitors looked very

likely to repeat the effort

several times but Lincoln’s

last-ditch defence was up

to the mark as usual.

SPORT

ABILITY: Lincoln

University’s Ngane

Punivai scored two

tries in their win over

Christchurch.

Ngane Punivai was

again influential for the

Rams, showing his ability

to make ground through

heavy traffic and he

finished two movements as

well as surviving a big hit

in the air.

Lincoln had the luxury

of bringing on Ere Enari

and Brett Cameron for the

second half, although they

did not eclipse the men

SELWYN TIMES

they replaced. Harrison

Courtney was typically

strong on the charge until

he was subbed off in the

last quarter. Dom Devine

again came on as hooker

when Nic Souchon retired

just on half-time. Maybe

having three props in the

front row helped Lincoln

embarrass Christchurch in

the scrum at times.

Cullen Grace was again

Darfield High rides to win in dressage

Darfield High School

equestrian manager Nicky

Voss writes about the

school’s recent success

DARFIELD HIGH School won

the Canterbury interschool

dressage for the fourth year in a

row.

The school entered three

teams on March 27, including a

non-competitive side. One took

out the compeititon and another

finished 14th out of more than

20 teams of riders from Timaru

to North Canterbury.

Each class had 26-27 riders,

and placings were hard fought.

The winning team comprised

of Charlotte Thomas, Georgia

Allison, Katherine Hadler and

Caitlin Rayne.

Charlotte rode two

than 70 per cent for both, with

She will be greatly missed in the

There is a real feeling of pride

I would like to thank Georgia

New families welcomed at

citizenship ceremony

A long road from Nigeria to Rolleston ended in happiness for the

Iposu family as they were welcomed as New Zealand citizens.

The Iposu family were among nine new New Zealanders from

Nigeria, the Philippines and Nepal, who were sworn in at the latest

citizenship ceremony held in the Council chambers. Sade Iposu,

from Rolleston, said it had been a long journey to citizenship, but

the family couldn’t be happier.

“We’re so grateful, so happy, so pleased—at last.”

Mrs Iposu said her husband first moved to New Zealand in 2003

to complete his PhD at Lincoln University and the family joined

him in 2005. Mrs Iposu, a micro-biologist by training, got a job

with the Canterbury District Health Board and was later able to

retrain as a nurse.

The family loved Selwyn and had built a house in Faringdon, Mrs

Iposu said. They had felt welcomed by people, with great friends

who supported her through working and looking after four children

when her husband had to return to Nigeria for a time.

After a delay with their residency application the family were

delighted to officially be New Zealanders. “We have been so

blessed to have a Kiwi family who were so welcoming and lovely

and said this is your home too,” Mrs Iposu said.

“It’s not an easy journey, but what I have learned along the way is

you just have to focus and never give up.”

Feedback sought on new

Leeston facility

The Council is planning a new community facility for Leeston and is

now seeking feedback on possible ways that it could be best utilised.

The Council’s Long-Term Plan 2018-2028 (LTP) process indicated

a modern fit-for-purpose community facility was required to meet

the growing needs of the Leeston community. This led to Council

adding the project to the LTP.

Open Space and Property manager Mark Rykers says the project is

at its very early stages. Council is speaking with the community to

first understand what the needs of the community actually are.

“In this first stage of public feedback, we’re wanting to know the

types of activities which people in the community see themselves

doing in the facility,” he says.

“This will give us a better idea of what kind of building could be built

to accommodate those activities and how it would be used.”

“There will be plenty of opportunities to provide feedback on the

facility, and we will have a formal public consultation process when

the project develops. I would like to thank the Leeston community

for its positivity and enthusiasm at this early stage of the project.”

Have your say

Feedback closes at 5pm on Monday 6 May.

For more information and to complete the feedback form go to

selwyn.govt.nz/newleestonfacility. Hardcopy feedback forms are

available at the Leeston Library and Community Centre.

100 years of Prebbleton rugby

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

PREBBLETON’S FIERCE rivals

Lincoln will be out to spoil the

club’s centenary celebrations

during their combined country

senior rugby encounter on

Saturday.

Club member Richard Busch,

who has produced a centenary

book commemorating the

occasion, said the two teams,

which will meet at Prebbleton

Oval, have a heated rivalry dating

back to 1944 when they played

for the Challenge Shield.

“The fierce rivalry between the

two teams has continued but the

shield disappeared,” he said.

Little more is known about

what happened to the Challenge

Shield following ‘the blood bath

game’. But when the shield was

found in a store room, the aim

was to put it up for grabs again

this weekend, along with the

Hayden Kerr Memorial Trophy,

which has been played for since

1990.

“Some of the older guys said

that with the game being more

forward dominated in those days,

there used to be a lot of (stuff)

that used to happen – punches,

twisted arms and legs.

“Back in those days, Prebbleton

and Lincoln was a real grudgematch,”

he said.

The Prebbleton Rugby Club

was formed in 1919 as the

Prebbleton-Halswell Rugby Club.

It was established by school

headmaster A.F. McMurtrie and

resident Herb Prebble.

In 1920 the club could not

field a first grade team so ended

up playing third grade in the

Christchurch competition.

The CRFU complained to the

club as their colours were the

same as Sydenham (blue and red

hoops).

In 1936, Prebbleton returned

to the Ellesmere competition and

won the first grade title four years

later. It was a feat they would not

replicate again until 1974.

Mr Busch said the book, which

he has been working on for the

past 12 months, became a passion

project.

“My grandfather (Alan) started

NOSTALGIA: One of the Prebbleton centenary jerseys to be

auctioned off during the celebrations. (Left) – Canterbury

coach and former Crusader Joe Maddock is one of

Prebbleton’s finest products.

playing here in 1947, and now

my father (Pat), uncle (Alistar),

myself, and now my son is

playing here, so to have four

generations – this club means a

lot.”

Mr Busch played for the senior

team during the 75th anniversary

celebrations in 1994, so he felt the

book was an important part of

ensuring the history of the club is

not forgotten.

The club has not produced any

All Blacks – but has produced

more than 50 Ellesmere and

20 Canterbury Country

representatives.

They have produced two

Crusaders – Joe Maddock,

who has been playing for the

club since he was 15-years-old,

and Peter Borlase, who played

from under-seven through to

under-18 level. The club has also

produced five national provincial

players in Maddock, Borlase

(both Canterbury), Craig Moore

(Tasman) and Steve Alfield

(Tasman).

It is hoped more than 350

people will turn up to celebrate

the club’s centenary.

The club will auction off

commemorative centenary

jerseys on Friday night.

“They’re old school cotton

jerseys with the yolk on the

front and the centenary logo on

one side and on the back, with a

stitched on white square with a

black number on it.”

The club has never had an

honours board so that will be

unveiled on Friday night as well.

Alistar Busch, Steve Laughton,

Karl Challis and Jeromy Knowler

will all be made life members this

weekend.

Richard said he hoped his

book will help the club cherish its

history until the next milestone

in 25 years.

Free landscaping plan on offer

A free landscape plan is being offered by The Outdoor

Space in a Facebook promotion this month. The free plan

is available with every accepted quote for sections under

2000m2 and the other provision is that the customer

“likes and shares us”, says owner Aaron Bartlett.

Winter is a great time for landscaping while you are

not as likely to be outside and the work can be done with

minimum interruption and ready for when the warmer

weather arrives.

The team at The Outdoor Space can do everything

except building the house including paving, irrigation,

lawns including artificial grass, planting, fencing, water

features, pergolas, outdoor fires, raised planters, decks,

stone walls and pillars, brick and block laying, vegetable

gardens - and lighting.

“If the client has an idea we can build it or we can also

create a design around what they’d like and then build

it ... we’re basically a one stop shop for all your outdoor

needs,” says Aaron.

The Outdoor Space team includes qualified

landscapers and a brick and block layer so they do not

need to use many outside contractors to complete the

project.

They have a massive range of options for stones,

bark, timber and pavers that can be viewed at their

office at 211 Wards Road in Rolleston. Or, with staff in

Rolleston, Christchurch and Ashburton, they can bring

the samples directly to your door.

Established in 2009, The Outdoor Space is an award

winning company receiving both gold and bronze

medals at the Ellerslie International Flower Show.

“Now that we have our feet under the

table, got some new team members on

board, got our yard, shop and workshop

set up largely as we want it, we were

ready to do something crazy,” says Cath.

73 Hire originally started up in Darfield

and the Rolleston branch was added

earlier this year, offering a wide range

of plant and equipment in excellent

condition, saving locals from having to

include car transporters and log splitters

along with scissor lifts, pumps, spits,

garden power tools, loaders, chippers

and much more. With a separate entry

and exit gate, pick-ups from Rolleston

are quick and efficient.

Sampling concludes

for NZ’s biggest ever

bee study

Biosecurity New Zealand has completed

sampling for the largest and most detailed

study of honey bee health ever undertaken

in New Zealand.

More than 60 beekeepers participated

in the Bee Pathogen Programme and had

their hives tested every six months for two

and half years.

Biosecurity New Zealand senior

scientist, Dr Richard Hall, says the

research will provide a wealth of valuable

information to the beekeeping industry.

“The Bee Pathogen Programme will

help us better understand the effect that

diseases, climate and apiary management

practices have on colony losses and

productivity,” he says.

“We have completed sampling and our

experts have begun carefully evaluating

the huge amount of data that has been

collected.

“This includes studying more than

130,000 honey bees from 300 samples

taken throughout the country that are now

archived in Biosecurity New Zealand’s

freezers.

“Once the data has been carefully

evaluated it will be available to the

beekeeping industry and to researchers for

further analysis.”

Biosecurity New Zealand is aiming

to release its conclusions from the Bee

Pathogen Programme in late 2019.

Dr Hall says Biosecurity New Zealand

is grateful to the beekeepers and trained

apiculture inspectors who participated

in the research programme and the

inspectors who conducted the field work.

“We are very thankful to all of the

beekeepers who have participated in the

programme and allowed us access to their

hives for sampling.”

with this. Here are the

answers to the spring bulb questions

I get asked the most.

Do I need to chill my

bulbs?

Yes – but only tulips and

hyacinths. And it’s only essential

if you experience fewer than five

frosts a winter. But even if you

do get enough natural chilling

in winter, fridge chilling can still

give benefits – taller stems and

earlier flowering.

Tulips and hyacinths are native

to areas which experience

quite cold winters and they need

this cold period for the bulb to

complete the development of

the flower bud deep inside. Sure

signs you should have chilled

your bulbs are if they produced

unusually short stems or the

bulbs failed to flower at all.

Done correctly, chilling your

tulips and hyacinths will result in

perfect spring flowers.

I haven’t got my spring

bulbs yet, is there still time?

There’s still plenty of time, mid-

April to mid-May are ideal planting

times as the soil cools and we

get some rain.

What about my tulip and

hyacinth bulbs that I chilled

and then planted last year?

Do I need to re-chill those

ones?

If you live in a warmer area and

chilled them before planting the

first time, it is probably a good

idea to lift them and repeat that

for subsequent years.

Ideally, you will have harvested

them during December/January

and left them in an airy place for

some weeks until you start chilling

them now.

However, if you didn’t lift your

bulbs and they’re still in the

ground, it’s best to leave them

there now. Areas that have had

rain may have caused roots to

start already and we don’t want to

disturb that. In December/January

you can lift them and follow

the above instructions.

How and when do I chill

my tulips and hyacinths?

And can I put them in the

freezer?

1. Early to mid-April is the

perfect time to start chilling your

bulbs. Too early and you’ll stunt

the flower bud development

because the bulb is not ready for

it yet.

2. Use a paper bag. It’s very

important the bulbs can breathe

and plastic bags cause sweating

and rot may develop.

3. Keep the bulbs to the side of

the fridge, not at the back where

the cooler plate may ice up and

damage them, or where condensation

may cause mould to

develop.

4. Never put bulbs in the

freezer. The freezer is too cold

and will kill your bulbs.

5. Keep fruit out of the fridge

while you’re chilling your bulbs.

Ripening fruit releases a gas

called ethylene which can cause

severe damage to the developing

flower bud in the bulb. If you

can’t keep fruit out of the fridge,

include an ethylene-absorbing sachet

in the bag with the bulb. This

will prevent ethylene damage and

suppress mould growth (they’re

actually really good in the vege

compartment too, to make your

veges keep longer).

When do I plant my bulbs

and how deep should I

plant them?

Once you’ve chilled your

bulbs for around eight weeks it’s

time to start planting in mid to

late May when soil temperatures

are cooler.

Before you plant, work the soil

with a fork to a depth of 25cm.

This is deeper than the bulbs need

to be planted but will allow their

new roots to easily push further

into the soil. Then plant your

bulbs around 15cm deep – it’s

cooler down there. Once planted

give your bulbs a light watering.

In cooler parts of New Zealand

you can plant tulips and hyacinths

successfully in pots, but because

pots warm up so quickly, even in

winter, I don’t recommend them

for warmer areas.

Apply a bulb fertiliser (available

from your local garden

centre) once the shoots emerge,

and water it in well.

If I plant my bulbs in a

pattern or a straight line will

they stay in that pattern?

Yes, they will stay in that general

shape, but as they naturally

increase in numbers over the

years the sharp lines and edges

will become a little fuzzier.

This Autumn the WEA is offering a

range of courses with the emphasis on

self and social care. We recognise that

having opportunities to listen deeply to

one another, and to come together around

a shared activity or experience are vital

parts of building a safe and connected

community. It is also true that to look after

others we must first look after ourselves. It

can be as simple as building time into our

busy lives for things that feed us: perhaps an

artistic or musical pursuit, learning a new

language, or practicing meditation. With

a range of over 40 courses from Middle

Eastern Dance to Understanding the Treaty

Holden’s big Acadia – born in the US

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

A STICKER with the message

“proudly built in Tennessee” is

something you don’t see often

on new vehicles sold in New

Zealand.

Sure, there have been a smattering

of US-built cars available

for NZ buyers, but they are few

and far between. However, there’s

a newcomer on the block, and

it represents much of the way

we view US cars, the seven-seat

Acadia is here and it’s big and

bold.

The Acadia is a large sport utility

vehicle that comes out of the

GMC stable, GMC is an off-shoot

of the giant General Motors conglomerate

that focuses primarily

on trucks and pick-ups. However,

the Acadia distances itself from

the ute market, it is built on a sophisticated

monocoque floorpan

with fully independent suspension,

lending itself to a refined

SUV which targets Toyota’s Highlander

as its main competition.

Under the bonnet sits a 3.6-litre

V6 petrol engine which is rated at

231kW and 367Nm, these healthy

outputs are realised tall in the rev

band at 6600rpm and 5000rpm

respectively. If you think these figures

look familiar, it’s pretty much

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

The Fujitsu e3series

the same power plant that is fitted

to the range-topping ZB-series

Commodore. The Acadia also gets

the same transmission, it’s a ninespeed

unit that is characterised

by smooth shifts and ratios which

ease the load on the engine so that

respectable fuel economy can be

gleaned.

Because of its size, and weight

(2032kg), the Acadia needs as

much benefit in this department

as it can get. Holden rate it with

a 9.3-litre per 100km (30mpg)

combined cycle rating. By my

reckoning that’s achievable, the

test car was constantly listing

around 10.8l/100km (26mpg),

taking into consideration I did

a lot of around the city driving

which is never conducive to good

economy results.

On the highway the engine

lopes over gently at 1500rpm

at 100km/h in top gear, using

fuel at an instantaneous rate of

7.8l/100km (36mpg).

The Acadia is also a useful offthe-seal

traveller. It lands in both

two-wheel-drive and four-wheeldrive

variants. The test car was the

top spec – LTZ-V, and although

the driveline won’t get to places a

low ratio set-up will take you, the

mechanicals are perfect for low

grip situations such as the skifield

access road, tackling the tracks

leading into those high country

lakes, or taking the boat to the slipway.

For the record, the Acadia has

a 2000kg tow rating and a 203mm

ground clearance figure.

It also travels with compliant

suspension travel. Unlike US

vehicles of the past which have

been quite soft in the suspension,

the Acadia’s spring and damper

rates are definitely biased towards

moderate firming, yet comfort

isn’t compromised.

Pushed into a corner there is

just enough steering feel thanks to

beautiful Continental sport tyres,

and they are big at 235/55 x 20in.

There is a lot of rubber on the

road and that promotes a secure

feeling of attachment.

Power out of a corner is vivid.

The quad-camshaft engine is a

howler, it works through the rev

band freely but you don’t have to

have it singing to the red line to

get performance, the torque curve

is just broad enough so that it

utilises the mid-range.

However, if you like to have it

breathing freely for a highway

overtake for example, it hunts to

the red line willingly, there was

never a point where I thought

the wrong gear was selected, the

way it arranges those nine ratios

is very clever. On the subject of

performance, the Acadia buyer

can expect a standstill to 100km/h

time of around 7.8sec.

As mentioned, the Acadia

lands here in three specification

levels, each with the option of

four-wheel-drive. The entry-level

model lands at $49,990, while the

test car with its high grade trim

and 4WD sits at $71,990. For

that money it is comprehensively

The Acadia makes no pretence

that it is genuinely American, its

styling is designed to capture attention,

and the luxury feel inside

takes me back to the best vehicles

that have come out of the States in

terms of build quality and comfort.

However, the Acadia also gets

the benefit of the down under

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

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

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy weekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting more experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

“You can just about guarant e

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

“I’d like to think so because the

The builder realised there was a need for some

quality houses in Rolleston as people were saying

that they wanted to upgrade to the next level

without being on a lifestyle property yet still wanted

to be within walking distance to the local shopping

hub, the aquatic centre, the new park and Rolleston

College. Not all buyers are first home buyers so he

built these stunning properties for those wanting

something that were not the typical cookie cutter

houses that are currently on offer. The auction last

week of the mono pitch designed house went to a

lovely couple who fell in love with the house at the

open home. They recognised quality when they saw

it and purchased 678 at auction leaving the last

two to be secured by astute buyers who also see the

value of living in such a handy location.

670 is 227sqm on a landscaped 651sqm section with

four bedrooms, two bathrooms with gas hot water and

under floor heating, three toilets for convenience and has

a study hub. The kitchen has engineered stone benches,

twin ovens and a walk in pantry which has been plumbed

for a refrigerator. The open plan kitchen- dining -living

area is the hub of the home and there is a separate

lounge room for those escaping to a little peace and

quiet. The separate laundry plus storage area has its own

access to the outdoor utility area and finally a carpeted

double garage with storage cupboard completes this

desirable property.

668 is a specially designed 225sqm home for couples

wanting a modern house with all the bells and whistles

but are only wanting three bedrooms, an open plan living

area and a separate living room which can be closed

off. This one has huge windows and sliders opening

to the outdoor living spaces and the master bedroom

also has a sliding door opening to the private

patio area. An added feature has a dual bathroom

servicing the two bedrooms which is perfect for

when guests arrive. Once again there is a separate

laundry and fully carpeted double garage positioned

on this landscaped 615sqm section.

Both properties are ready to be

purchased now so come to one of the

open homes and have a friendly chat to

either Mary or Rachael on how to secure

one of these new builds for your future

living.

Linking

agricultural

services

Lincoln based Blinc Innovation is setting the scene for

collaborative innovation within the agricultural sector.

An independent organisation, Blinc

Innovation (previously known as the

Lincoln Hub) was formed to act as a pillar

for bringing businesses, farmers, growers

and individuals together to collaborate

across the ecosystem to allow more

cohesion between the various groups, who

often work in isolation. This has led to

more initiatives coming into fruition and

since forming in 2016, Blinc Innovation

has overseen successful projects, as well as

public and private events relating to land

use, nutrients, emissions, agtech and more,

helping future proof the country’s farming

systems.

Blinc Innovation is a neutral connector

and facilitator for agriculture with its home

doubling as a co-working facility with

permanent and flexible tenancy options, as

well as providing meeting rooms and event

space. The Blinc Workshop is a physical

place where collaboration and connection

is encouraged and comes to life.

A broad spectrum of businesses across

agriculture, are represented at Blinc

with university students also able to join

a student programme which utilises

the space and connects with the agri

innovation ecosystem.

“It’s a great way for people to be within

the agricultural community with access

to office, meeting or event facilities,

for a short period or as a long-term

tenancy,” says Victoria Stark, Marketing

and Development Manager at Blinc

Innovation.

An advantage of the Blinc Innovation

centre is the associations and interactions

which have developed. The people

involved learn from each other

with mutual projects often evolving

out of the connections. Events and

activities designed just for tenants,

led by Community Manager Katie

Browning, help develop the co-working

community and create a vibrant working

environment.

A diverse range of people and

businesses use Blinc Innovation

with relationships forming in agricommunity

and projects emerging where

commonality exists.

Blinc

Innovation

has overseen

successful

projects.

Short or longterm

tenancy

is available.

Mutual

projects are

worked on.

opportunity for those seeking the tranquillity of a rural

location and the scope to create a blissful retreat

within a short commute of the city. Set amongst

established grounds, the character home remains in

near original condition leaving it ripe for renovation

and enhancement. Outside features include a large

double garage, additional shed, productive soils, own

well and a paddock with established shelter.
