Selwyn Sounds ‘strongest line-up yet’

OLD SCHOOL: Australian band Icehouse will headline Selwyn Sounds at Lincoln Domain in March.

THE LINE-UP for the next

Selwyn Sounds rock festival is

being touted as the best ever.

Iconic Australian band

Icehouse will headline the

Lincoln Domain event on

March 7. Tickets go on sale at

District

council

gets AA+

for its

finances

THE DISTRICT council has

received the highest credit rating

of any council in New Zealand

after being awarded an AA+ by

Fitch Ratings.

The rating is the same

as both the New Zealand

sovereign rating and the Local

Government Funding Agency

for local currency.

It is a measure of the district

council’s ability to meet its

financial commitments, and

means the council is at a very

low risk of defaulting on its

loans.

In its assessment, ratings

agency Fitch Ratings took into

account the strength of the

council’s financial management

and the district’s economy,

which is being driven by

population growth.

It recognised the council’s

prudent financial forecasts and

the diversity of the district’s

economy, including professional,

scientific and technological

services.

SELWYN TIMES

THAT’S A pretty good looking line-up for

the next Selwyn Sounds (see page 1).

Icehouse, 10cc and Midge Ure of

Ultravox fame are the headline acts, with

plenty of top support bands to make it

another great event. March’s festival will be

the fourth Selwyn Sounds, which over and above being a great

day, is very beneficial to the community and district.

A number of community groups are able to use it as a

fundraiser, courtesy of the promoters.

Lincoln High’s grounds are used for car parking, bringing in

many helpful dollars to the school.

The weather gods have also smiled on Selwyn Sounds, with

climate change and the moving seasons making early March

perfect for an outdoor concert.

heard at the hearing. A date is

The submissions have come

from a wide scope of residents

and businesses.

Major companies and associations

in support of the proposal

include Allied Concrete Ltd,

The Aggregate and Quarry Association,

Institute of Quarrying,

Isaac Construction and Lyttelton

Port Company.

Allied Concrete Ltd national

services manager Bob Officer

said the quarry will be a replacement

for the Pound Rd Quarry

which is approaching the end of

its operating life.

He said it will provide the

continuation of supply for high

quality aggregates that are

essential for the concrete production

required to meet growth

production for Christchurch and

its surrounds.

“Christchurch has an ongoing

requirement to improve and

develop its infrastructure. Both

concrete and quality aggregates

are needed to meet this requirement,”

Mr Officer said.

Other companies in support

have shared the same views.

Lyttelton Port Company environment

and planning manager

Kim Kelleher said the continuation

of high-quality aggregate

supply is essential to meet future

regional growth predictions.

Against the proposal were

Christchurch International

Airport Ltd, Greater Hornby

Residents’ Association, Southern

Woods Nursery Ltd and Templeton

Residents’ Association.

Christchurch Airport raised

concerns over the risk of increasing

bird strike and how dust and

lighting from the quarry, which

would align with the airport’s

main runway, has the potential

to interfere with pilots’ sight and

visibility.

The Templeton Residents’ Association

discussed visual effects

and the impact vibration, noise,

dust and light will have on the

area.

The discharge of contaminants

to the air, whether there were

enough water resources for the

quarry, mental and physical

health on residents and loss of

amenity were also raised in the

submission.

Due to a large number of

handwritten submissions, ECan

was required to transcribe, some

of the names of submitters had

Thank you for

helping your

Fall Zones

community

To all of you who have had your

trees trimmed before they became

a problem, thank you for keeping all

the families in your community warm,

happy, healthy and connected.

You can be proud of the fact that you have allowed your

neighbours to stay warm, cook dinner and even charge

their mobile phones. You may not have realised that what

you’ve done has had much impact, but from all of us here

at Orion, we just want to say thank you.

Notice and Growth limit zones

A

Power line voltage A. Growth limit zone B. Notice zone

33,000 volts 2.5m 3.5m

11,000 volts 1.6m 2.6m

400/230 volts 0.5m 1.5m

We’re not exaggerating.

On our network, 10-20% of all unplanned power outages are

caused by trees — including vegetation — coming into contact

with power lines. Other than this, fire damage to property from

branches sparking in dry conditions and serious injury from

electrocution from contact with trees touching power lines are

also possible consequences of not maintaining your trees.

How close is too close?

While most damage is caused by trees falling on power lines,

significant risk exists from trees merely touching them. This risk

increases the higher the voltage of the power line.

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees

and power lines, as defined in the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003, are outlined in the diagrams above.

All vegetation should be kept out of the growth limit zone and

preferably the notice zone.

Sometimes it may not be practical to have a tree trimmed at the

rate at which it grows and unfortunately, this means it may need

to be removed. Other situations may require trees to be removed,

most commonly when they are at a high risk of falling due to

disease or adverse weather events.

Where do I start?

Before you begin, remember to keep yourself, and those around

you, safe. We recognise that not everyone is experienced in tree

trimming and are happy to advise you on what to do. We can arrange

for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your expense, however

we recommend you hire professionals to safely carry out the work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within four

metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from

Orion before you start. As a tree owner, you may be liable for any

damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

Will I be fined if I don’t comply?

If a cut or trim notice is given to you and you fail to have the tree

trimmed and/or advise us of the time and location of the trim

without a reasonable excuse, this is an offence. This will make you

liable for a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues,

you will be liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every

day or part day during which the offence continues.

More info can be found on our website and if

you have any questions or notice any trees

touching power lines in your area, please call

us on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

Young family

lucky to escape

serious injury

after hit-and-run

• By Devon Bolger

AN ALLEGED hit-andrun

driver has handed

himself into police after

colliding with a young

couple’s car which had

their seven-week-old baby

on-board.

Sarah Reiher, 22, said she

was travelling through a

roundabout in Rolleston’s

Izone area with her partner

Jacob Barber, their son

Kian and a family friend

when they were hit by a

‘drifting’ Nissan Skyline

on Thursday night.

“We yelled out to the

other driver that there was

a baby in the car, thinking

he would help us, but he

didn’t even get out of the

car, he just laughed and

drove off.”

Ms Reiher took to

Facebook after the

incident, posting on the

Rolleston community page

for help to track down the

person responsible.

into police.

“There was a lot of

anger afterwards, the fact

that he’s since come forward

has reduced

that anger,” Ms Reiher

said.

She said she’s been told

the man will be charged

and will appear in court.

The young couple’s car

was completely written off

in the collision but nobody

was seriously hurt.

more cuddly and we were

Kirk Rd stop

upgrade gets

green light

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

AN EXISTING bus stop

outside the Templeton

Medical Centre on Kirk Rd

will be upgraded to provide

easier access for people getting

on and off the Yellow Line.

The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

approved the changes last

week.

The city council will paint

the stop, install bridge blocks

to improve access to the front

and rear doors of the bus, and

put in a new seat.

The improvements are

needed due to the deep-dish

drain channel next to the stop,

which has been causing bus

drivers to stop at the nearest

driveway to provide a safe

environment for passengers

moving between the platform

and the bus.

They often have to park

over the recently developed

medical centre’s driveway.

Currently, the stop is

unmarked, but has a bus stop

sign attached to a utility pole

beside the medical centre

driveway.

Cookbook for a good cause

• By Jess Gibson

A MENTAL health cookbook

produced by three Darfield High

School students features Jacinda

Ardern’s signature zucchini slice.

The newly-established business

behind the cookbook, NZ Happy,

aims to raise awareness around

mental health and make it more

comfortable to talk about.

Year 13 student Georgia

Mitchell is the chief executive

and she works alongside five

other business partners from her

school.

“We’ve created a cookbook

which is a combination of New

Zealand recipes, stories, tips and

quotes. Even Jacinda Ardern has

given us a recipe which is pretty

exciting,” Georgia said.

Each cookbook will sell for

$15, with 20 per cent of profits

going towards the Mental Health

Foundation.

The cookbook was one of the

hosted by Ara Institute of Canterbury

on Monday.

In Canterbury, there were

been 540 registrations from

senior secondary school students

There were common themes

among many of the projects like

It was the second year of

the partnership between Ara

and YES, and Canterbury’s

“One of Ara’s goals since the

start of the partnership has been

to increase the awareness of the

people in the region and the

skills they learn through this

wonderful scheme.”

Now that the students have

attended the market day, they

will work on their marketing

campaigns, sales and producing

months.

The top six teams to emerge

from the Canterbury competition

will go on to compete at the

Partnership to foster learning

THE DISTRICT council is

partnering with the awardwinning

Children’s University

to help foster a life-long love of

learning.

Children’s University is

a learning programme that

encourages seven to 18-yearolds

to engage in exciting and

innovative learning activities

and experiences outside of the

classroom.

The first children’s university

programme in New Zealand

was started last October with

Lincoln and Canterbury Universitys

forming the Children’s

University Canterbury Partnership

to oversee the programme.

The district council has joined

the programme, identifying and

offering opportunities to explore

and participate throughout the

district. These include exploring

and participating in district

council-organised programmes

and events. Some of these opportunities

and activities will be

identified on the Children’s University

website and in district

council guides.

District council community

relations manager, Denise Kidd,

says supporting Children’s University

was a great opportunity

for the council to play a part in

investing in Selwyn’s children

and future.

“It’s important to encourage

our children to learn in the

world, as well as the classroom,

and the council knows that

Selwyn has a lot to offer and is a

world worth exploring.”

Children at participating

schools choose, visit and participate

or explore at approved

learning destinations. These can

range from visiting a museum,

participating in an outdoor activity,

or taking a craft or art class,

to spending time visiting and

exploring a farm — anything

that connects with the Children’s

University learning “curriculum”

and has realistic links to a university

programme.

When children visit a learning

destination they gain hours in

ENGAGEMENT:

The Children’s

University is

students to

a learning passport. Once the

children have completed at least

30 hours of learning they take

part in a graduation ceremony

to mark their achievements.

As a world first, Te Taumutu

Rūnanga has taken the opportunity

to be a part of Children’s

University. Ngāi Te Ruahikihiki

ki Taumutu tamariki and

mokopuna now have the ability

to receive formal recognition

of learning that enhances their

cultural identity, Te Taumutu

Rūnanga chairperson Julie Robilliard

says.

“The most exciting aspects of

Children’s University being piloted

in the Canterbury region is

that we have a unique opportunity

to set the standard for how

mātauraka Māori can be valued

within this programme and how

partnership with mana whenua

can enhance the experience for

all students in Aotearoa.”

Prebbleton and Ladbrooks

Schools are among those taking

part in the programme.

Ladbrooks School Children’s

University co-ordinator Keryn

Wilson says the programme has

been a great opportunity for her

pupils.

“The initiative has allowed

our students to see learning

opportunities outside school

time and they are excited by

the activities that have been

counted.’’

CLASSIC: The Mockers will return for Selwyn Sounds 2020.

•From page 1

“Icehouse hasn’t played in

Christchurch since 1991, so very

proud to bring them to Lincoln to

play at Selwyn Sounds.”

The line-up will also feature

international acts 10cc, Midge

Ure, who is the voice of Ultravox,

and Kiwi bands Zed, The

Mockers, Automatic 80s and Jed

Parsons.

Icehouse was formed by Iva

Davies, the band’s frontman and

musical creative force, who led

the band to 28 platinum albums,

eight top 10 albums and more

than 30 top 40 singles, including

Great Southern Land, Hey Little

Girl, Crazy, Electric Blue, and We

Can Get Together.

“The band has been playing

together for more than 40 years,

selling out shows around the

world, including their last New

Zealand tour, selling out three

shows in record times to 45,000

people and rave reviews,” said Mr

Parlane.

“Midge Ure continues to tour

and play all around the world.

Many will remember Ultravox

from their exhilarating show at

Sweetwaters in the 80s. Their

hit album Vienna was in the NZ

top 40 for over 47 weeks. 10cc

has sold out many concerts in

New Zealand in the past, with

such hits as Dreadlock Holiday,

The Things We Do For Love, I’m

Not In Love, Art For Art’s Sake,

Rubber Bullets, I’m Mandy Fly Me

and Donna.

Getting the band Zed, which

will reunite after 15 years,

was a coup, he said. “They are

a real rock and roll story of

Christchurch school mates,” said

Mr Parlane.

The school mates formed a

band and went on to have four

top 10 hits.

Rotary club

school quiz

THE SCHOOL quiz is an

important event on the Rotary

Club of Lincoln’s calender.

It involved pupils from several

primary schools competing in

pairs for prizes. The recent event

attracted the largest crowd ever

– 19 schools and 38 participants

– reflecting the district’s

population growth.

Parents and teachers joined

in to support the young

competitors, meaning the

club catered for more than

100 attendees. The questions

were selected from a large pool

provided by the teachers. There

were four sections and the live

scores were projected onto a

large screen.

Club members had an opportunity

to chat with parents and

teachers and develop a stronger

bond with the community.

The senior school winners

from Springston, Prebbleton and

Broadfield, and junior pupils

from Leeston, Southbridge and

Dunsandel, received gift cards

and book vouchers.

The club meets every Tuesday

at Lincoln University. Visitors

and new members welcome.

Have you thought about

fostering a child?

We are looking for people in the Christchurch area who are willing to

open up their home to *Matt. He needs a home that can provide him

with support, care and unconditional love and guidance in a clear, fair

and consistent way. Matt is looking for caregivers who enjoy outdoor

activities and have a spacious yard.

Matt is an enthusiastic, funny and

curious 16-year-old boy who is

looking for a long-term home. He

has overcome many challenges in

his life and has grown immensely

from these experiences. He has a

strong need for belonging which he

has rarely had. He is kind, helpful,

and eager to get on well with other

people. He also loves outdoors,

biking, Minecraft and animals.

Matt has an amazing sense of humour, although requires support to

express his feelings and needs. Matt is currently working on building

positive relationships and will require ongoing support.

We welcome carers who have the time, energy and the ability to

provide a loving home. These are the most important things we look

for in our foster carers. We will provide ongoing and intensive clinical

and financial assistance as well as training to all our carers to ensure

they always feel supported and enabled to do their best.

Fostering a child in need is challenging but truly rewarding. As a carer,

you’ll provide consistent and responsive support and attention to help

them make sense of their world.

If you are interested in

discussing possibilities for

Matt, please call Nicky on

03 365 0291 or 027 207 8212.

HAPPY MATARIKI everyone.

I hope you’re all using this

wintery time of year as a perfectly

appropriate Kiwi cultural excuse to

eat heaps with the family.

Obviously hangi or a generous

roast are the best bets. Vittoria had

her first full hangi meal on Saturday.

Now that I’ve got you thinking

of delicious food and eating, let’s

take this lowbrow and talk about

bodily functions. Just what you

wanted right? I’ve always counted

myself lucky to have avoided the real

nastiness of parenting babies and

toddlers so far. While my mates have

had all sorts of dramas, I’ve missed

(or dodged) the worst of it.

I still count myself as lucky in that

regard (thankfully), but I got my

first taste of an ‘oh-hell-no’ toiletry

nightmare this week.

After coming home from an

activity last week a whiff of bad

cabbage cologne told me it was

change time. Luckily, it was all

contained and wasn’t so bad in the

big scheme of things.

I congratulated myself on another

job well done.

through the nappy and the house

was warm so I left her just in her

top and nappy for a bit while I had

some lunch in the kitchen (out of

the wee seagull’s view).

The true horror began soon after.

Leaving the kitchen, I looked into

the hall and immediately asked the

question: “Is that a wee jobbie?”

It was. Right there on the floor.

But not just there.

Suffice to say, if it gets on a

shoe that’s about 30cm off the floor

on a rack, you’ve got problems

mate. Lord have mercy. Round

two was too much for her nappy to

handle.

So I rolled up my sleeves (way up)

and got stuck in, battling through a

tantrum, an awful smell and kicking

legs to clean up the offending

nightmare and get Vittoria through

a quick shower.

After that we both deserved a fun

afternoon in the park – as far away

from thoughts of a digested meal as

possible.

Backyard Critters

Is it a ladybird, bug or

actually a beetle?

THE TWO-spotted lady

bug or ladybird is neither

a bug nor a bird, yet that is

what it is usually called.

That is why scientific

names are the best way

to communicate which

species you are referring to.

In this case we are talking

about Adalia bipunctata,

the two-spotted lady beetle

– and yes, it is a beetle.

I can confirm that it

usually has two spots, but

this is not always the case.

Like most common lady

beetles, the two-spotted

species is usually red with

black dots, but Adalia

bipunctata is extremely

variable, even to the point

of being black with orange

dots.

What is constant is its

4-5mm length and dome

shape.

This flighted species was

larvae of this species are

carnivorous.

The species has been

introduced to many

countries as a biocontrol

agent of aphids, but is

also known to feed on

meally bugs, psyllids and

scale insects. Larvae have

a completely different

appearance to adults – they

are elongated, grey, softbodied

and wingless.

The species is thought

to pass through three

generations per year and

SPRINGSTON continued

their unbeaten run in the

Ellesmere premier competition

by successfully completing their

first ever defence of the Murray

Cooper Shield against Waihora.

The 26-18 win at Springston

Domain saw the home side

put the shield up for grabs for

the first time since they won

Ellesmere’s equivalent of the

Ranfurly Shield for the first

time in the club’s history a week

earlier.

“It was a messy game to be fair

. . . it was good to win when we

played so badly,” said Sutherland.

“To come away with a win

against Waihora at any time is

good, but it would have been nice

to play a bit better.”

The match also had extra

meaning for Springston’s Cameron

Powell and Jack Hardacre

who are both former Waihora

players.

Tries to Powell, Thomas

Cockburn and Sam Cottam gave

Springston a 19-18 advantage

with just a minute to play. Following

a Waihora 22m drop

out they wrapped up the match

when prop Harry Burgess

and run over the line to score.

Schedule could dash Springston’s hopes

• By Gordon Findlater

SPRINGSTON’S potential

fairy tale story from playing in

Ellesmere’s second division two

years ago, to making a run at

the Coleman Shield could take a

serious blow due to the Mitre 10

Cup starting early.

If the leaders of the Ellesmere

premier competition make the

final on July 27 they are likely

to be majorly effected by a Canterbury

pre-season game which

will be played against Tasman

in Hanmer Springs on the same

day.

Springston hooker Sam Powell

and first-five Cameron Cottam

are both in the Canterbury

wider training group and are

now unlikely to be available

for Springston if they make the

Ellesmere club final. The club

would also likely be without

Crusaders and Canterbury

player Mitchell Dunshea who

has played a handful of games

for Springston this year.

“They’re [Cottam and Powell]

both saying if we’re in the final

then they want to play finals

footy. That’s why they’re here,

because they want to help

the club win the title,” said

Springston coach Anton Sutherland.

If Springston can go onto

make the club final they are

likely to apply for dispensation

from Canterbury to allow their

rep players to be available.

The double up has been caused

due to the Mitre 10 Cup season

• By Gordon Findlater

A VALIANT second half

performance wasn’t enough to

stop Lincoln Combined being

put to the sword by unbeaten St

Andrew’s College 19-47 in the UC

Championship on Saturday.

Lincoln Combined found themselves

in trouble early as the home

side jumped out to a 0-33 lead.

“We started nervous and made

some errors and they’re a really

good side. They punished us in particular

with the pick and go, anytime

they got into our 22 they came

away with points,” said Hooper.

However, a strong second half

from Lincoln Combined saw them

DOUBLE UP: Cameron Powell and Sam Cottam could be forced to miss the Ellesmere club

final for Springston due to a Canterbury pre-season match which is will be played on the same

day as the Coleman Shield final. ​

beginning earlier than in recent

years due to no June international

window being played this

year.

“Ahead of the first round of

the 2019 club season and the

completion of competition

draws, the CRFU and its subunions

were advised of changes

to dates for the Mitre 10 Cup

competition this year, which

would see the provincial competition

start date brought forward

by one week. As a result, New

Zealand Rugby’s recommendation

was that club finals across

outplay St Andrew’s 19-14 thanks

to an improved display and tries

from loose forward Blake Evans,

second-five Wil Gualter and replacement

prop Jordan Lill.

“The boys showed real character

in the second half. It would have

been really easy for the boys

to fold, but they didn’t do that.

We played some good footy, in

particular there were some really

good performances from our

bench,” said Hooper.

This Saturday, Lincoln Combined

travel south to take on

Timaru Boys’ High School – who

are just two points behind them.

Hooper says they are expecting a

tough match from a Timaru BHS

New Zealand be played one

week in advance, on the weekend

of July 20-21, in order to ensure

there was minimal disruption

to the club competition and

player availability,” said CRFU

chief executive Tony Smail.

“It is ultimately the decision

of our sub-unions as to the dates

they wish to play their club

finals and we have had good

conversations with each of them

throughout this process. We’ll

continue to work with them

around player availability to

ensure the best outcome for both

Selwyn Times

Selwyn joins

Children’s University

Selwyn District Council has partnered with New Zealand’s first Children’s University programme to

support lifelong learning in the district.

Children’s University is an award-winning international learning programme that encourages 7 to

18 year olds to engage in learning activities and experiences outside school.

Children on the programme earn stamps in a ‘learning passport’ for each hour they spend at

approved learning destinations. When they have completed 30 hours they can graduate in a

graduation ceremony.

Learning destinations can be anything that connects with the Children’s University curriculum and

a university programme—from visiting a museum, participating in an outdoor activity, art classes,

or exploring a farm.

Lincoln University and the University of Canterbury partnered to bring Children’s University to

Canterbury in October and the Council has joined the partnership by offering learning destinations

throughout the district.

Destinations are marked in the Term Three Selwyn Activity Programmes sent to every house

this month.

Community Services group manager Denise Kidd says supporting Children’s University was a

great opportunity for the Council to invest in Selwyn’s children and future.

“It’s important to encourage our children to learn in the world, as well as the classroom, and we

know that Selwyn has a lot to offer and is a world worth exploring.”

Te Taumutu Rūnanga has also joined the partnership and in a world first it hopes will impact

other Children’s University programmes the Canterbury programme includes formal recognition

of learning that enhances the cultural identity of Ngāi Te Ruahikihiki ki Taumutu tamariki and

mokopuna.

Prebbleton and Ladbrooks Schools in Selwyn are among those taking part in the programme.

Ladbrooks School Children’s University coordinator Keryn Wilson says her students have been

excited by the programme and the activities that are counted.

“Students have been embracing their passions and looking for ways to reflect on these through a

lens of what has been learned. They are keen to talk about what they have been involved in and

families are showing their support by using local learning destinations.”

KidsFest back this weekend

KidsFest is here from Saturday with a packed programme of fun for

children throughout the school holidays.

Starting on Saturday, Eye Spy Selwyn will be under way for

young people to get out and explore the district any time. The

creative MakerStations and Game On! board games events will

be available any time at the Selwyn Libraries. From Monday, the

Selwyn Aquatic Centre will also have its giant inflatables and

paddleboats out on weekdays.

Other events during the week should ensure something for everyone

from the popular kids market on Thursday 11 July to the Moviemania

showing of Ferdinand the Bull on Tuesday 16 July, Council’s Sport,

Recreation and Wellbeing manager Dave Tippett says.

“We’ve got the Navigational Rampage on at Foster Park and Sports

Suzie’s Silly Circus Show that are looking like being a great time.

We’ve got a lot of stall holders signed up for the kids’ market

again, so that should have a great range of stuff for sale and we’re

encouraging people to make time to come in and grab a bargain

and support the kids.”

Events are happening all over the district, including Map IT!

sessions in West Melton, Glentunnel, Tai Tapu and Southbridge,

offering an opportunity to create a whole new world and enjoy

the art and science of creating maps. For more information see

selwyn.govt.nz/kidsfest.

Young people go speed dating

for work

It was all about connections as 29 school leavers tried to woo

potential employers from 12 businesses at a speed dating style

event in West Melton.

The Council-run event last week was organised to help Year 12 and

13 school leavers meet employers and hopefully get a job.

The students had five minutes to meet with each business, with each

side marking if they were interested afterwards and Council staff

matching up where both student and business were keen to talk more.

The aim was to support young people and keep them in the district,

Council Community and Economic Development senior advisor

Clare Quirke says.

“We know with young people leaving school, if they don’t get into

employment or training that can be a time when problems begin.

Meeting potential employers is a stressful thing, especially if you’re

doing it for the first time, so the speed dating idea gives it a bit of

fun in a neutral setting.”

Sonia Rawson from trucking company Canterbury Bulk Freight says

they were keen on the chance to support young people and the day

went well.

“We’ve been quite surprised by the amount of them that are

interested. It’s an opportunity for them to sit down with an employer

they might not normally approach, and whether they go with this

industry or just build some confidence because they have spoken to

an adult about a job that’s good.”

Darfield High School careers advisor Jo Ager says the five students

she brought had appreciated the chance and had their eyes opened

to jobs they didn’t know about before.

“These guys were super nervous, but the employers have been

impressed with the students that sat in front of them.”

The event was run with advice from the Ministry of Education and

Otago District Council, which have successfully held similar events.

Upgrades begin in Prebbleton

The first project to upgrade the Eastern Selwyn sewerage scheme is

under way in Prebbleton.

Construction on the new $2million Prebbleton pump station

began last week and is expected to be completed in December,

weather permitting.

The pump station is needed to keep up with growth in Prebbleton.

It is the first of a series of upgrades to the Eastern Selwyn Sewerage

Scheme signaled in the Annual Plan 2019/20 to cater for continuing

population growth. The station on Springs Road will work together

with the current station to collect Prebbleton wastewater and

transfer it though the Council network to the Pines Wastewater

Treatment Facility.

It has been designed with a purpose built odour control unit to

eliminate any smell from the site and an acoustic engineer also

helped with the designs to ensure minimum noise.

Trees will be planted around the site to reduce the visual impact.

The pump station was proposed in the Annual Plan 2016/17 and an

independent adviser was engaged to select the best site.

Discussions were held with the neighbouring landowners and the

station was designed to take their feedback into account.

SELWYN TIMES

From Auckland bad

• By Gordon Findlater

EXCITING: Ron Cribb wasn’t afraid to show off his footwork

while gracing the Crusaders No 8 jersey.

RON CRIBB is a prime example

of how the Crusaders can turn

an Auckland bad boy into All

Blacks material.

The 42-year-old father-of-two

is now a well-established figure

in the business world. However,

he is best remembered in this

part of New Zealand for scoring

the Crusaders only try in their

20-19 win over the Brumbies in

the 2000 Super Rugby final.

The No 8 scored in his

signature style by putting

through a grubber kick to

himself before crossing the line.

The try was one of seven in a

season which also saw him cross

the line in the semi-final against

the Highlanders.

Cribb’s performances in red

and black throughout the 2000

season set him up to make

15 appearances for the All

Blacks over the next two years.

However, it could have easily

turned out very differently – he

grew up with a reputation for bad

behaviour in West Auckland.

Cribb played rugby league

until he was 17. He was a student

at Auckland’s Rutherford

College at the same time as

Kiwis representatives Robbie and

Henry Paul. However, his days

there were cut short when he was

expelled for fighting. He then

moved to Massey High School,

where he joined his childhood

•Great players have come and gone from the

Crusaders over the years. Selwyn Times continues

to catch up with some of them.

friend Troy Flavell. “I was getting

into a bit of trouble there (Massey

High) and they encouraged us to

leave school,” said Cribb.

“I look back and I’m pretty

embarrassed of my behaviour. I

was quite aggressive, causing a

bit of trouble and bullying.”

Through a technicality, Cribb’s

father found a way to keep his

son at school. However, one of

the conditions of his attendance

was that he play for Massey’s first

XV.

“My first year I wasn’t in

the rugby system at all and

then Russell Jones selected

me for North Harbour,” said

Cribb.

“We ended up finishing third

in the school competition and

when I got home there was

a letter saying you’ve been

selected to play for the New

Zealand Schools and you’re off to

England, Scotland and Wales for

eight weeks.

“All of a sudden I was the first

New Zealand schoolboy from

Massey and it was a big deal. The

school was all over the awards

and in the paper, so all of a

sudden, I went from zero to hero

. . . I took advantage of that being

the little s**t I was and wore

whatever I wanted to school. I

had a lot of growing up to do

that’s for sure.”

Following school, Cribb went

through what he describes as a

rough patch.

He made the New Zealand

under-19 squad while living out

of a car due to problems at home.

Cribb says his former under-19

coach still tells the story about

him sleeping in a car to motivate

players when they don’t turn up

to training.

“At night I had a dog which

kept me company. I did 10km

runs in the evening and I would

eat at friends or have a shower at

friends where I could.”

boy to match-winning Crusader

“I used my sport as an avenue

to get me back on track because

I went off the rails for a bit, but

I stayed focused as much as I

could,” said Cribb.

“I went through a lot of

injuries because I didn’t

understand the importance of

nutrition. I over trained and

was undernourished, so I was

constantly getting sick.”

In 1998, Cribb made 13

appearances and scored six tries

for North Harbour in the NPC.

He looked sure to have a career

at the Blues in 1999 before being

dropped.

“They dropped me for

something that wasn’t even

correct. In fact I was actually

trying to help a teammate, so I

was pretty devastated,” he said.

Cribb went back to club rugby

in Auckland before getting a

phone call from Wayne Smith

midway through the season

after regular Crusaders No 8

Steve Surridge suffered a serious

injury. He initially thought he

was being pranked by Flavell,

but Cribb was asked by Smith

to move south and join the

Crusaders.

“I went down and they did a

3km run and I came last, even

though I did it 12min, but Con

Barrell beat me in the last 100m.

I was pretty gutted to come last

because I’m quite competitive,”

he said.

Cribb says he asked the

LIFE LESSONS: Ron Cribb is now

the national relationship manager

at Metro Performance Glass after

making a career for himself in the

business world.

coaching team to give him a

chance and agreed to put in

extra training to bring his fitness

up to speed.

The Crusaders coaching staff

were also the first to encourage

Cribb’s flamboyant

style of play after

previous coaches had

told him forwards

don’t kick the ball.

“They were the first

coaches I had which

encouraged that. They

said we didn’t bring

you down here to hit

rucks, we brought you

down here to get the

ball in your hands and

do the stuff we know

that you can do, which

was quite refreshing,”

said Cribb.

“Canterbury

changed my whole

mindset, I started

seeing things

differently. Guys like

Shag [Steve Hansen]

had a huge influence

in that; he kept me

grounded every week.”

Following his

breakout 2000 titlewinning

campaign

with the Crusaders,

Cribb returned to the

Blues in 2001.

However, a series

of injuries and a knee

reconstruction limited

his play at the highest

level. In late 2003, he joined the

Kobelco Steelers in Japan. After

five seasons there, he played

one season with Ravigo in Italy

before returning to New Zealand

to be closer to his son and

daughter.

In 2010, he hoped to sign

off with one last showing for

North Harbour, but a prolapsed

disc in his neck which caused a

trip to the hospital also revealed

a broken collarbone he’d had for

six weeks.

“I was wondering why I was

struggling to lift in the lineout,

I thought I was just getting old,”

said Cribb.

Following his rugby playing

career, Cribb had a brief stint

in real estate before being told

about a role as an account

manager at Fletcher Steel.

“I had no qualifications or

anything so I was starting from

scratch, which is really hard, but

I won them over with one answer

really,” said Cribb.

“They said to me, so you’re

role is you’re going to have

customers that will potentially

be let down and it will be outside

of your control, how are you

going to deal with that? I said,

can I answer that as a question

. . . have you ever let down four

and a half million people? I

think I can handle one or two let

downs.”

After putting the HR

department into stitches, he got

the job and worked there for two

years.

He then took on a national

key account manager roles at

Tasman Insulation and Mitre

10. Cribb is now the national

relationship manager at Metro

Performance Glass.

Cribb says his ability to

move into the corporate world

following rugby is one of the

accomplishments he is most

proud of in his life.

“I was given a contract with

North Harbour during my last

year of high school and I really

didn’t have anything else . . .

a lot of the skills I’ve learnt

through rugby I’ve transitioned

into the corporate arena. It’s little

things like the way you think

when you make a decision,” said

Cribb.

“There’s a lot of people in the

corporate arena that will make

decisions that best suit them or

make them look good.

“I’m more what’s good for

the business and the team?

I understand individuals,

different characters and different

values all coming under the

one umbrella . . . it’s things like

Gilbert Enoka taught us when

we were playing, which is your

mindset, and so that’s what I did

and I learnt on the way.”

Outside of work, Cribb is

actively involved with his

children’s sporting activities.

His 15-year-old son Nico is a

promising outside back and

100m sprinter.

Meanwhile, his 17-year-old

daughter, Helena, is playing

representative netball.

Fightback not enough to secure Lincoln Uni a win

Jim Doyle reports on

Lincoln University’s game

against Christchurch

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY lost

their third game in the top six

of metro premier rugby, going

down 28-38 to Christchurch at

home on Saturday.

When you’re 20-0 down after

20min, the finish line looks a

long way away. But the Rams

won a lot of hearts for fighting

back to 28-33 with a minute or

so to go.

By that stage they’d posted

four converted tries to three by

Christchurch. It was time for a

final fling.

The breakout by the Rams

from deep in their own territory

looked promising to start with.

Then a pass went astray and

Christchurch first-five Tom

Hanham-Carter swooped to nail

the game for the visitors.

You can’t blame the Rams

too much for that. It was death

or glory. But it meant they had

only one bonus point instead of

two.

They were guilty of such

sloppy play earlier and

SPORT

Christchurch were happy to

pounce on it. Still the Rams head

the top-six points table although

they’re looking thin in key areas

and will need to dig deep in the

weeks to come.

Christchurch had too much

of the ball and the game in the

first half, Dan Dorgan (playing at

fullback) steering the side with

big punting and the rest of the

team mixing ruggedness with

canny play.

With huge props in Hamish

“Keg” Kilpatrick and Sam

Cottam, Christchurch had an

edge in the scrums, for the first

quarter at least.

Sam Gilbert set the ground

alight for the home side with

time almost up when he carved

the Christchurch defence apart

to score the last try for his side.

He landed the conversion for

another 100 per cent goalkicking

return.

Nic Souchon gave it

everything to lift his team. He

battled through an ankle injury

then was kicked in the head

while lying on the ground some

distance from the play. He tried

to soldier on, but he was limping

and there was blood coming

from his left ear so he had to be

replaced.

Scorecard:

Christchurch 38 (Burns Mills,

Hugh Renton, Matt Kottier,

Thomas Hanham-Carter tries;

Dan Dorgan 3 conv, 4 pen) beat

Lincoln University 28 (Brian

Matoramusha, Troy Hallett, John

McKeefrey, Sam Gilbert tries;

Gilbert 4 conv). HT: 23-7.

Slow cooked, healthy butter chicken

Making healthy meals

packed with flavour is

easy in a slow cooker,

says chef and food writer

Ross Dobson

In his latest recipe book, The

Healthy Slow Cooker, Dobson

shows it doesn’t take too much

effort to make food in a slow

cooker that is not only healthy

but can also be gluten-free,

vegan or vegetarian. He uses

inspiration from Asia, India and

the Middle East, with flavours,

ingredients and spices that work

well in a slow cooker.

Light butter chicken

(serves four, gluten-free)

Prep time 20min

Cooking time 4.5 hours

Ingredients

750g chicken thigh fillets

1 brown onion, chopped

3cm piece ginger, chopped

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 large green chilli, seeded and

chopped

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp butter

½ tsp chilli powder

1 Tbsp ground cumin

1 Tbsp ground coriander

1 Tbsp garam masala

1 Tbsp sweet paprika

5 green cardamom pods, lightly

crushed

2 Tbsp tomato paste

(concentrated pure)

2 tsp chicken stock

powder

400g can crushed tomatoes

1 Tbsp cornflour

1 cup (260g) natural yoghurt

To serve

Brown basmati rice

Handful roughly chopped

coriander (cilantro)

Lemon wedges

Directions

Heat your slow cooker to high.

Trim the fat from the chicken

thighs and discard. Cut each

thigh in half, or into thirds

if large, bearing in mind that

they will shrink as they cook.

Refrigerate until needed.

Put the onion, ginger, garlic

and chilli into a food processor

and process until you have a

chunky paste.

Heat the oil in a large frying

pan over medium heat. Add the

paste and cook for 8-10min,

until the liquid from the onion

has evaporated and the paste

looks dry. Stir through the butter

and cook for a minute until the

butter has melted.

Stir in the chilli powder,

cumin, coriander, garam masala,

paprika and cardamom pods.

Add two tablespoons cold water

and stir to incorporate any stuckon

bits.

Stir in the tomato paste and

stock powder, then scrape the

contents of the frying pan into

the bowl of the slow cooker.

Add the crushed tomatoes,

cornflour, yoghurt and chicken.

Give everything a good stir,

nudging the chicken into the

sauce, then cover and cook for

two hours.

Give it a stir, then quickly

cover again to avoid losing too

much heat. Cook for a further

two hours, until the chicken

is very tender and the sauce is

thick. Serve the butter chicken

on brown basmati rice, garnished

with chopped coriander and

lemon wedges on the side.

Wine

Sizing up Central Otago’s 2017 pinot noirs

• By Mark Henderson

I’VE RECENTLY had the

opportunity to taste my way

through a swathe of 2017 pinot

noirs from Otago.

The 2017s are the dominant

vintage in the market at the moment,

though probably

won’t be around for too long as

many wineries had significantly

lower yields in 2017, while

2018’s, from that hot “solar’’

vintage, are already trickling on

to the shelves, offering a

fascinating comparison with the

cooler 2017 vintage.

2017 Quartz Reef

Bendigo Single Vineyard

Pinot Noir

Price: $49

Rating: Excellent

Bright and fresh nose,subtlety,

a sweet accent to the perfume,

underlying savoury, raspberry

and spice notes, adding thyme

and rosemary with time. Sweeter

fruit initially in the red fruit/

raspberry spectrum with a fine

tannic backbone, this swells in the

glass, developing a fleshiness and

delightful flow through the palate.

Nice balance here and excellent

potential.

www.quartzreef.co.nz

2017 Rockburn

Central Otago

Pinot Noir

Price: $45

Rating: Excellent to outstanding

Tilled earth, dark fruits,

savoury elements and rhubarb.

Powerful fruit leads the palate

with lead pencil and stoney/

schisty notes in support, backed

by a fine tannic backbone and

a little fruit pithy chewiness.

The complexity, fruit intensity

and structure bodes well for the

future, yet this is also delightful

now.

www.rockburn.co.nz

2017 Mount Edward

Central Otago

Pinot Noir

Price: $49

Rating: Very good to

excellent

Powerful, fresh nose, savoury,

brambly wild herb notes with

fresh lift; some oak spice with

time. Dark fruits, licorice, spice,

a youthfully sappy quality. The

palate shows a vibrantly brash,

youthful character at first, adding

red fruits into the mix. Aeration

sees this fatten up nicely, suggesting

that a little time will be a good

friend here.

www.aronuiwines.co.nz

2017 Mondillo

Central Otago

Pinot Noir

Price: $45 (not yet released)

Rating: Excellent

Intense, sweetly-fruited nose

with liqueur fruits, berry compote

and spice. Dark cherry and dark

fruits are a foil for the charry oak,

while aeration increases the complexity

with savoury, earth and

wild herb notes adding interest. .

www.mondillo.com

2017 Coal Pit Tiwha

Central Otago

Pinot Noir

Price: $57

Rating: Very good

A wild and funky element leads

with red fruits, herbal notes and

leather sweeping in. Noticeably

sweetly fruited, providing some

confectionery notes, yet the palate

has a cooler, juicy crunchy feel,

playing a little in the sweet and

sour spectrum. The palate follows

the nose, adding earthy touches

before flowing to a bright, lifted,

red-fruited finish. Up front appeal.

www.coalpitwine.com

2017 Maude

East Meets West Reserve

Pinot Noir

Price: $45

Rating: Excellent

The nose keeps shifting; at

times blueberry, raspberry, florality,

savoury notes, char and bramble.

At first, youthfully chewy and

powerfully tannic with whole

bunch sappy, stalky notes that

challenge you. This wine marches

to the beat of its own drum, with

time unfurling suppleness and

glimpses of the complexity and

texture that lie waiting. It should

be a fascinating journey.

Hodgkins’ sesquicentenary marked in fine style

Two new books on the life of

Frances Hodgkins celebrate

the 150th anniversary of the

Dunedin artist’s birth

FRANCES HODGKINS:

EUROPEAN JOURNEYS

Edited by Catherine Hammond

and Mary Kisler

Auckland University Press

FINDING FRANCES

HODGKINS

Mary Kisler

Massey University Press

Reviewed by Geoff Adams

Polar and mountaineering book collection for Templeton

AS MUCH as it pains

Oamaru’s Adventure Books

owner Bill Nye to say it,

the town’s literary loss is

Christchurch’s gain.

Last year he was bequeathed

more than 6000 books – plus

memorabilia and ephemera

– donated by the late Jack

Newton, an American collector

of mainly polar exploration

and mountaineering literature

based in Boston.

Before Mr Newton died, he

expressed his desire for his

collection to be exhibited as a

permanent, accessible reference

and research library.

Mr Nye hoped to display

the treasure trove of books

and documents, in addition to

another 1500-plus books in his

Oamaru premises on a mezzanine

floor that he planned to

build.

However, the proposal was

turned down by his landlord,

the Oamaru Whitestone Civic

Trust.

Instead, the collection will

now be housed at Antarcticthemed

tourism attraction

Husky Base Camp at Templeton.

Mr Nye said it was unfortunate

the collection was unable

to be displayed in Oamaru, but

was pleased a suitable location

had been found further north.

“When I spoke to a guy

about Jack’s collection he

said America’s loss is New

Zealand’s gain. The same

thing occurred to me when

the civic trust rejected the

proposal for a mezzanine in

here. It’s Oamaru’s loss and

Christchurch’s gain.’’

THESE TWO remarkably fine

books about the Dunedin-born

artist enrich our knowledge

about Frances Hodgkins, who

is regarded as one of the leading

lights of the British Modernism

movement and probably New

Zealand’s most influential of

expatriate artists.

The books are linked with a

major touring landmark exhibition

of Hodgkins’ works opening

in Auckland.

They are published in tandem

and work beautifully to celebrate

the 150th anniversary of the artist’s

birth; a daughter of William

Mathew Hodgkins, the person

responsible for setting up the

Otago Art Society in 1876.

European Journeys is a large and

weighty book that explores Frances

as a traveller across cultures

and landscapes, teaching and

discovering the cubists in Paris,

the landscape and light of Ibiza

and Morocco, and exhibiting with

the progressive Seven and Five

Society in London. It enchants

with its rich visual chronology

of the artist abroad, and delights

with more than 100 illustrations:

some of Frances’ key paintings

and drawings.

The two editors (both senior

members of the Auckland Art

Gallery staff) have done a marvellous

job with their own written

contributions and employing the

talents of a number of distinguished

national and international

art historians, curators and

critics who also contribute.

This is a book that entices the

reader to turn the pages for its

wonderful selection of Hodgkins’

imaginative art works, many that

may perhaps be unfamiliar to the

viewer.

The second book is Mary

Kisler’s magnum opus, a smaller

book certainly but no less appealing

as she narrates her discoveries

and adventures in Finding

Frances Hodgkins. The book

immediately draws attention with

another large selection (more

than 70) of Hodgkins art works.

It is more personal in character

she tells how she followed

tracks and clues to understand

her target. Admitting that no-one

can really “find’’ Frances Hodgkins

(a complex figure and rover),

Kisler does piece together some

of the puzzles surrounding where,

when and why the artist painted

some of her best known pieces.

Kisler’s own travel adventures also

make enjoyable reading.

It is a remarkable event in New

Zealand art history to have these

two splendid books published at

the same time. They fit together

to give a grand salute to the artist.

As John Piper wrote of her in The

Spectator in 1940: “Probably no

living painter has such powers of

arranging colours in original and

telling ways.’’

Hodgkins deserves this similar

and admirable recognition in

her home country. We await the

exhibition later in the year with

great interest.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

SELWYN TIMES

Proposed law good

for rural communities

Federated Farmers and Dairy NZ both

support the Government’s decision to

proceed with a Farm Debt Mediation Bill.

The proposed legislation will require

creditors to offer farmers who default

on payments mediation before they take

enforcement action and will allow farmers

to initiate mediation.

The legislation will apply to loans that are

secured against farmland, farm machinery,

livestock and harvested crops and wool.

“Farmers are especially vulnerable to

business down-turns as a result of conditions

that are often outside their control, such as

the weather, market price volatility, pests and

diseases like Mycoplasma bovis. Farmers are

also facing a raft of policy changes, including

around freshwater management and climate

change, and these could apply even further

pressure,” says Feds Vice-President and

commerce spokesperson Andrew Hoggard.

DairyNZ chief

executive Dr

Tim Mackle

According to Federated Farmers, the

agricultural sector has nearly $63 billion

of debt and their six-monthly banking

surveys show that while most farmers are

satisfied with their banks, satisfaction has

been slipping and the number feeling under

pressure has been rising.

“There is no substitute for good

communication and we urge farmers and

their banks to keep in close touch and build

positive relationships in good times and

bad, with or without farm debt mediation,”

Hoggard says.

DairyNZ chief executive Dr Tim Mackle

also welcomes the Farm Debt Mediation Bill

as an example of an initiative that will mean

a lot to farmers who may be feeling financial

pressure.

“For many, the farm is more than just a

business. It’s a home, a lifestyle or an asset to

be passed down to the next generation. That

brings with it its own unique pressures,” said

Dr Mackle.

“This Bill acknowledges that and will

provide support for farmers in financial

distress in their dealings with secured

creditors, allowing for the fair, equitable and

timely resolution of farm debt issues.

“Sometimes a farmer’s business can also

be thrown off-kilter by an event entirely out

of their control whether that be a drought,

a flood, volatile international markets or a

biosecurity incursion. This legislation will

really help support farmers managing such

volatility,” said Dr Mackle.

“While we would hope that farmers don’t

find themselves in this unfortunate situation,

this is the reality of any business sector.”

The Farm Debt Mediation Bill was

proposed by the Coalition Government.

It’s an idea that was first cooked up by New

Zealand First MP Mark Patterson.

As the party’s primary industry

spokesperson, Patterson said when a farmer

is in financial distress, a system of mediation

could help find solutions and avoid property

foreclosure.

“It offers a fairer system and is in the best

interest of all parties.”

Patterson withdrew his Farm Debt

Mediation private members’ Bill late last

year, and it’s been reported he only did that

when the Coalition Government indicated

it would introduce its own collective one.

Mudfish protection project

highlights collaboration

A ground-breaking Canterbury mudfish

(kōwaro) protection project in Haldon

Pastures features a Southern Hemisphere

first – a solar-powered electric fish barrier,

designed to prevent predation by trout.

Since its inception, this pilot project has

brought together many different groups and

individuals, particularly the close working

relationship with the Department of

Conservation and funding from fu Fonterra’s

sustainable catchments programme.

Installation of the barrier will allow the

mudfish to expand into the lower reaches

of the site and stop predation by trout –

increasing spring-fed stream habitat for

the mudfish from 880m2 to 8,000m in the

Selwyn Waihora catchment. It also allows

for the study of predator exclusion and

population monitoring, harnessing this

innovative technology to find new solutions.

With the project on private land, it was

essential to have the support and backing of

landowners – one of whom is John Grigg,

who said “It’s such an amazing environment,

and we wanted to do something useful to

leave the land in a better state and protect

this unique species.”

Minister of Conservation Eugenie

Sage said: “This project is audacious and

provides an opportunity to increase our

understanding of how we can better protect

our native freshwater fish from predators. In

combination with other initiatives, it allows

restoration of important sites for these

species and the ecosystems which support

them, across Canterbury and New Zealand.

“The management of Canterbury mudfish

and their habitat is complex, and requires

close collaboration between Environment

Canterbury and DOC. As their habitat is

predominantly on private land, it is also

highly dependent on the commitment of

those landowners,” said Minister Sage.

Welsch, who has been instrumental in

ensuring the success of the project at every

stage, commented: “Working collaboratively

in this way is a perfect example of how, by

joining forces, we can make biodiversity and

species protection not just a priority, but a

practical reality.”

The project is a Southern Hemisphere first,

using electromagnetic barrier technology

designed by US company Smith-Root. The

company said: “Throughout the design,

equipment supply, and commissioning

stages of the project, we collaborated with

and relied upon the expertise of PDP and

Frizzells. The information provided by these

experts, and the reliable communication

and leadership by Johannes, made our job

much easier, especially being 19 time zones

away.”

Councillor Pham emphasised the

importance of projects such as this: “Sadly,

time isn’t on our side when it comes to our

remaining mudfish populations, so I am

really pleased to see us here today, celebrating

this innovative predatory fish barrier. These

special critters really do need all the help

they can get, and that means having as many

tools in the toolbox as possible.”

Alpine passes no hurdle to Equinox

IT WAS supposed to be a

Canterbury/West Coast road trip

in a Holden Equinox to coincide

with the March equinox, the

twice a year event when the sun

crosses the plane of the equator

making days and nights of equal

length.

However, as a mark of respect

to the Christchurch terror attack

victims, the event for a group of

motoring writers was postponed;

instead it became a journey to

mark the winter solstice of June

22 – the shortest day – a chance

to watch the sun rise over Sumner

beach and see it disappear into

the horizon at Punakaiki on the

West Coast.

In-between stood some of

the most scenic roads in New

Zealand – the alpine passes and

Buller River regions – and roads

which allowed the Equinox to

show its credentials.

The Equinox is not new in New

Zealand, the Mexican-sourced

sport utility vehicle landed here

in 2017, and has established itself

markedly in the crowded midsize

SUV sector.

It comes in a wide variety of

models, there is a complete range

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

starting from $29,990 and ending

at $60,490, all with four-cylinder

engines, and all turbocharged.

Base models land with a 1.5-litre

petrol unit, there is a 2-litre petrol

and a 1.6-litre diesel.

I’m yet to drive the diesel, but

I can report that even in basemodel

form the power plant is

far from disgraced; it is a real

honey and would probably be

my choice if I was an Equinox

buyer. The cars we drove through

the alps, and return, were 2-litre

LTZ-V petrol models, which list

at $57,490.

At that price the Equinox is

fully loaded with specification. It

gets all the traditional SUV kit,

but there are also many niceties

that would please the South

Island buyer – heated steering

wheel and heated seats for the

cold winters, dual sunroof, and

cooling seats.

Other major items include

satellite navigation, cruise control,

Bose premium audio, wireless

mobile phone charging, handsfree

tailgate, and hill descent

control.

The latter works on four-wheeldrive,

obviously, and while not

HOLDEN EQUINOX LTZ-V: Four-wheel-drive for gnarly off-road

tracks.

all models have drive to all four

wheels, the LTZ-V does, and it

is usual SUV fare, not so much a

device to tackle gnarly off-road

stuff, but easily a mechanism so

that cross-country tracks and

trails can be conquered.

The Equinox is capable and

honest, it does well under

testing conditions and does so

without compromise. Occupant

comfort is high, and the driveline

mechanicals are well suited to

tough conditions.

Holden rates the 2-litre model

with 188kW and 353Nm; for

interest’s sake, the 1.5 gets 127kW

and 275Nm, reinforcing my

comment earlier that it doesn’t

miss out on much.

Quite obviously, the 2-litre

doesn’t work quite as hard, and

it has more than enough power,

it competes in the mid-size SUV

market admirably. Against the

stopwatch it will easily make a

standstill to 100km/h sprint in

8.8sec.

More importantly, it is an engine

that is gentle with fuel use. Holden

claims an 8.4-litre per 100km

(34mpg) combined cycle average.

That sits well with the 9.8l/100km

(29mpg) figure showing on the

fuel usage readout on the journey

across the great divide.

Drive is channelled through a

nine-speed automatic gearbox,

the benefit of so many gears is the

smooth and fluid way in which

transmission is delivered.

In the tight stuff the Equinox

also has tidy handling manners,

the suspension has just the right

compliance between cornering

and comfort, steering feedback to

the driver is constant.

Holden has gone big with its

sport utility vehicle range. Not

only is there a comprehensive

array of models to choose from,

they go from small to large – Trax

to the new Acadia.

The company on both sides

of Tasman is on a fairly solid

direction in terms of marketing

and promotion.

The product which is arriving

in our market is markedly

different to what we have

traditionally come to expect.

However, that’s a good thing,

the Holdens that are gracing our

showrooms are aimed to satisfy

families and fleet buyers.

Gardening

Prepare vege patch for spring planting

GOING INTO winter, air and

soil temperatures are low, the

soil is often very wet, with frosts

in many parts of southern New

Zealand.

July is the main month for

planting new deciduous trees,

shrubs, fruit trees and roses, and

garden centres are now fully

stocked with these plants. Always

select high quality specimens

and plant correctly with plenty of

compost into the existing soil.

In the vege patch, continue

planting and harvesting broccoli,

brussels sprouts, cabbages,

cauliflower, silverbeet and

spinach. Where soil conditions

allow, you can start preparing the

vege garden for spring planting.

In late July, chop up and dig in

green manure crops like lupins or

mustard.

If you have roses, complete

your annual pruning, especially

on bush or standards that

produce flowers late into early

winter such as icebergs.

Remove all dead and weak

growth, clean out the centre of

plants and prune to outward

facing buds. Add fresh compost

to the soil around the rose plant,

but do not fertilise until spring

arrives.

In warmer, sheltered areas,

citrus production should be

in full swing, with clementine

MAINTENANCE: If your hydrangeas are looking sad now is the time to prune them back. It’s also time to plant deciduous trees.

mandarins, lemons, limes and

navel oranges all now maturing.

Check your trees while picking

fruit for any overcrowding or

weak branches that should be

removed. Check for any root

stock growth and prune where

required. For colder climates, use

frost cloths to protect frost tender

citrus.

Give fruit trees a second winter

clean up. Spray with a copper

compound or lime sulphur to

kill any overwintering fungal

diseases.

Now’s the time to prune your

blackberries, boysenberries,

loganberries, or raspberries.

Cut out all old canes and any

weak spindly growth.

New season strong canes

should then be tied up on wires

or fences to help support this

summer’s fruit crop.

Complete your strawberry

plantings this month. Purchase

new plants or obtain young plants

(runners) from the previous

season strawberry plants. For the

home garden, plant at least 20

strawberry plants to ensure plenty

of fresh strawberries for the

whole family.

Your hydrangeas may be

starting to look a little sad.

They can grow very large and

require heavy pruning

and thinning. Remove old wood

completely as there will be ample

new growth in spring. Make sure

you cut just above a node as it is

from here that spring growth will

appear.

Flowering winter shrubs

like azaleas, camellias and

rhododendrons will provide

lovely colour in your garden.

Take note of what varieties or

species are performing best in

your garden or in neighbouring

gardens for next year’s new

planting.

Winter flowering annuals

will be at their very best in

July. Primulas, violas, pansies,

calendulas and cinerarias should

all be in full bloom.

Continue to dead head from

these plants to encourage

continual flowering.

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.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

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.”

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 challenge

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 w ekend

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 mor 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

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

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

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

Mr Winder and his team, the

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

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.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Buying and selling in winter

Spring is generally considered the

best time to sell a home. Many houses

look their best in the warmer weather

when the sun is streaming through the

windows and the garden has fresh new

growth and spring flowers abloom.

With this in mind, it might seem

pointless selling in winter yet there are

still buyers out looking, and with fewer

properties on the market winter can be

an ideal time to list your home. Less

competition could translate to more

buyers considering your home.

If people are out looking at homes on

cold grey days it means they are serious

about buying so may be more likely to

make an offer.

In winter, buyers can assess the

warmth of a home and see the garden

with less foliage and growth. Visiting

after heavy rain allows buyers to observe

the home’s condition as issues like

drainage problems or outdoor areas

where water pools might be evident.

If currently looking for land to build

on or choosing a house design for a

section, visit the section at various times

of the day to assess where the sun will

come into the home. Remember, the sun

is lower in the sky in winter so penetrate

further inside than it will in summer.

This exercise will help you appreciate

which house designs will best suit your

piece of land as well as where windows,

exterior doors, indoor/outdoor flow and

outside living areas will be best placed

for maximum sun on cooler days. Bear

in mind other seasonal factors such as

the potential for strong northwest winds

in spring and hot dry summer days.

If selling a property, you will want it

to look good. Clean up the garden, clip

back dead wood on trees and shrubs

and weed garden beds. Mulching will

make the garden tidier too. Add colour

with flowers which bloom in winter

like calendula, hellebores, lobelia,

pansies and polyanthus. Fill gaps in

your herbaceous borders with trees and

shrubs which offer variation of colour

like bronze and variegated foliage or

flowering species such as camellia. Keep

it simple as a fussy looking garden will

give the impression it requires a lot

of work to keep it tidy. Many people

however, want easy care.

Real estate agents always recommend

de-cluttering inside and outside. Too

many ornaments, wall hangings and

furniture take the eye away from the

features of the home and will make

the rooms look smaller. An unclean

or untidy home will also make it less

appealing. Create a warm inviting

atmosphere with fresh flowers, scented

candles and essential oils (though not

too strong), and the odd ornament.

Heat all rooms before an open home

(especially on dreary days) so viewers

are not walking into cold rooms.

The more appeal the home has the

more chance a potential buyer will make

a good offer.

If people are out

looking at homes on

cold grey days it means

they are serious about

buying so may be more

likely to make an offer.
