Committee member Russell

Dalzell said the intersection of

Main South and Browns Rds

has been concerning locals for

years.

“It’s a real bottleneck intersection.

Anybody travelling

from the southern end to the

northern end has to cross

there,” he said.

“There’s some speed signs

right as you come through

the town and they completely

block your visibility at the

intersection. They’re completely

dangerous.”

Lincoln

company’s

bid to

introduce

e-scooters

• By Devon Bolger

A LINCOLN-BASED company

is taking on Lime to bring

e-scooters to Selwyn.

Angela and Phillip Eberhard

have recently started a business

named Lava Scooters.

They have applied to the

district council to operate 50

e-scooters from 7-11am, seven

days a week in Rolleston, Lincoln

and Prebbleton. The application

includes the possibility of

expanding to 200 scooters in the

future if successful and allowed.

Mrs Eberhard said they are

excited to be entering the

market.

“Being local and knowing

this community and wanting to

be a part of that is exciting,” she

said.

“Lime is big and that’s probably

more of a risk for us but I think

working and living in this area

makes it more enjoyable and we’re

just hoping the community will

get behind us.”

There are some safety features

that set them apart from Lime,

Mrs Eberhard said.

ANOTHER SIGN the district is growing

at a quick rate – more e-scooters.

On page 1 today, we reveal Lincoln

couple Angela and Phillip Eberhard have

set up Lava Scooters.

They have applied to the district council

to operate 50 e-scooters in and between Lincoln, Rolleston and

Prebbleton, creating competition for Lime which could also get

under way in Rolleston in December.

Having said that, the odd Lime scooter has already invaded

the district. Usually you will see them abandoned on a Saturday

or Sunday morning, probably the transport mode of choice for

a long ride home from Christchurch after an ale or seven.

Probably also cheaper than a cab or an Uber, and with a full

head of steam on board who is worried about the temperature?

Figures show housing

market in hibernation over winter

• By Devon Bolger

THE WINTER blues could

be putting a dampener on the

housing market in Selwyn.

The Real Estate Institute of

New Zealand’s latest monthly

property report shows the

volume of houses sold in the

district has dropped 29 per cent

in the last month and 12.3 per

cent in the last

year.

Harcourts

Lincoln principal

officer James

Twiss said the

figures are

affected by the

James

Twiss

seasons.

“With winter

hitting, people

tend to be less active when it

comes to buying and selling

homes. There is also that a lot

less people have been listing

homes for sale,” he said.

“Volumes will definitely be

lower for not only this month,

but probably for the next three

months.”

The report also shows the

median house price in the

district has dropped by 3.6 per

cent since this time last year.

It now sits at $568,000,

Hon Amy Adams

MP for Selwyn

Working hard for our communities

compared to $589,000 last year.

Mr Twiss said the drop could

be due to a number of factors.

“The main factor may be that

the number of new properties

being sold may have been less

in this period, and as new built

homes tend to command a

higher price than already built

stock, this would certainly lower

the median price.”

With the lack of listings, sales

volumes could stay lower than

2019

last year for a few months, he

said.

“But as the number of listings

increases, I would assume

sales volumes will also. Price

trends are another question and

unless interest rates increase

or inflation kicks in, I can’t see

house prices moving upwards a

lot in the next few months.”

a long-term housing plan

Council to assess

all safety concerns

•From page 1

“Such as having a reduced

speed limit within the town

centres called courtesy zones.

We also know there

are concerns about

State Highway 1 but we

will be geo-fencing the

scooters so they begin to

slow down when out of

bounds.”

District council group

manager regulatory

services Tim Harris said

district council staff

will now assess Lava’s

proposal to make sure

all safety concerns are

addressed.

Mr Harris said a

report will then be

presented to councillors

once all evaluations

have been completed

and the property and

commercial team

have prepared a lease

agreement for the use of

council space.

“The lease agreement

affixes a dollar value

for rental of space if it is

required. The lease agreement

will most likely set out the rules

and requirements of the trial

too.”

The district council will then

vote on both Lime and Lava’s

proposals at the same

time.

“We need to make

sure that all the issues

have been addressed

through a robust

process before the

report is finalised

and it will only go to

council to vote on once

this has happened”

In May district

councillors voted to

give Lime Scooters a

six-month trial once

it has worked with

TranzAlpine in spotlight

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Peter Neale

THE TRANZALPINE will

feature in a British-made

documentary series The World’s

Most Scenic Railway Journeys.

London-based BriteSpark

Films will document the

TranzAlpine which operates

from Christchurch to

Greymouth in one episode of the

six-part series.

A film crew

they will also

West Melton

Mr Mackwell said being part

The historic Arthur’s Pass

will also feature heavily in the

documentary, the Selwyn Times

understands.

National Geographic magazine

rated the TranzAlpine as one of

the most scenic railway journeys

in the world in 2017.

Arthur’s Pass Alpine Motel

owner Peter Neale said the company

had booked into the motel

on Monday and Tuesday.

“I think it is awesome. It has

Cafe leaseholder Heather Valphy

SELWYN TIMES

said she thought the filming

it had not been confirmed

“They are very interested in

the Barrys Bay cheese platters

we make for the train and they

are using that as a different

perspective rather than the usual

historic take on railway trips,”

she said.

Springfield and Arthur’s Pass

railway stations both have long

histories.

The Springfield station was established

in the 1880s operating

in the centre of the township. In

1923, it was moved to its current

location off King St before it was

rebuilt using pink summerhill

stone in 1966 after it burnt down.

In Arthur’s Pass, the first station

was built in 1914 but was

rebuilt in 1923 with the opening

of the Otira Tunnel and completion

of the Midland Line.

The station was destroyed by

fire in 1963. The present structure

was completed in 1966.

Selwyn Times has learnt the

documentary would likely air

on British television network

Channel 4.

The film company is also

planning to document a historic

locomotive at the Canterbury

based at McLeans Island.

Sediment trap plan to

make Coes Ford swimmable again

• By Devon Bolger

COES FORD is the focus of a

plan to make the Selwyn River

swimmable again.

A plan for fencing, planting

and reducing contaminants has

been made and

aims to increase

the water quality

at the ford and

upstream.

Environment

Canterbury

acting zone

Andy Barbati

manager central

Andy Barbati

said planning is under way for

sediment traps to be set up in the

ford.

“These traps remove E.coli

from both the water column

and sediment. A site at Lower

McGraths Creek has been

confirmed so far,” he said.

The next steps for the

committee is to file consent

applications for the traps, Mr

Barbati said.

He said the possibility of a

wetland near Coes Ford is also in

the works.

“Taumutu Rūnanga, the

district council, ECan and

others have agreed to progress

the concept of a wetland near

Coes Ford. This is now in the

preliminary scoping stage.”

Swimmable Selwyn is part

of the wider Canterbury Water

Management Strategy which

sees councils in the area working

with ECan to manage and

improve the region’s water.

The Selwyn-Waihora zone

committee – a joint committee

with the district council,

Christchurch City Council

and ECan – is leading the

project.

Committee co-chairwoman

Megan Hands said it is focused

on Coes Ford because it is a

much loved recreation area.

“We have received a strong

message from the community

that the river needs to be better

road map for a healthier Selwyn

in creeks and streams that

ultimately feed into it.

“It’s not just for Selwyn

residents but for people all over

Canterbury. It’s important that

we get to have the Coes Ford we

can all enjoy.”

plants went into the ground

to protect water quality at two

Wai-Ora Forest Landscapes and

ECan.

Ruminant and avian matter

is present at the ford and it has

high levels of E.coli and nitrate

in the absence of rain.

The main land use is farming,

ranging from arable and

horticulture to livestock and

smaller holdings.

Plans are in place to build

consents have been granted for

the redevelopment of the district

Tce/State Highway 73.

It will initially be a self-serve

station with six double-sided

pumps. The district council will

retain ownership of the land and

lease it to NPD. Its construction

would be undertaken and

funded by NPD.

NPD chief executive Barry

Sheridan said motorists will

enjoy lower fuel prices at the

station.

“Our self-serve model functions

with lower operational and

capital overheads. We’ve chosen

Darfield as a strategic location

to support the local farming and

agricultural community with an

affordable fuel option.”

Construction is expected to

start in the next few weeks and

it is hoped the facility will be

operating by the end of the year.

Tribute garment makes WOW finals

• By Devon Bolger

THE GARMENT Leeston

designer Loretta Sloan made as

a tribute to the victims of the

mosque shootings has landed her

in the finals of the international

World of Wearable Art show.

Mrs Sloan said she got the idea

after attending a memorial ceremony

at the Al Noor Mosque.

“Hundreds and hundreds of

people were there paying tribute,”

she said.

“I went home that night and

thought what can I do to give

back? So I’m giving back to them

as a form of art.”

She engaged with the family

of a victim who is still suffering

from the attack and they helped

her with aspects of the garment.

“I just wanted to reach out to a

family who was involved and let

them know that I was planning

this tribute.”

“It was really lovely meeting

them, listening to them and

hearing their stories. It was a real

emotional journey for me.”

Mrs Sloan said she is incredibly

proud that her garment will be

shown on the international stage.

“It’s not just about me, it goes

to all the families involved and

their friends. It extends out to

everyone who has been affected.”

She has continued to keep in

touch with the victim’s family

she worked with.

“I let them know the garment

made the finals and they were

really happy, it felt like my hard

work had paid off.”

Mrs Sloan spent nearly 400

hours constructing the garment

from scratch, it is made of New

Zealand wool.

The final piece can’t be revealed

until the World of Wearable

Art show.

About 60,000 people are

expected to attend WOW’s 31st

season in Wellington from

September 26 to October 13.

Mrs Sloan is one of two designers

from Canterbury chosen

to showcase her garment at the

show amongst finalists from 22

countries.

Last year’s winner Tina

Hutchinson-Thomas, 45, of St

Albans also made the cut.

This year she entered three

pieces which follow the

theme of mythology, and Mrs

Hutchinson-Thomas said the

design is based on shape and

colour – but couldn’t reveal more

than that.

Mrs Hutchinson-Thomas once

doubted whether she was arty

enough for WOW – this is now

her third year of entering the

competition, and her third time

being a finalist.

Mrs Sloan has entered the

show 10 times before.

She said she hopes her success

inspires other people in the community

to give it a go.

“It’s an honour to be accepted

into the show and hopefully I

can inspire anyone who may

have a creative urge to enter

She will be attending the show

with her family and friends, Mrs

Sloan said.

“I’m really looking forward to

it, it’s always great to see your

designs on a worldwide stage, it’s

a fantastic show and I encourage

everyone to head along.

“Every garment is special but

I think this one in particular,

because of the story behind it,

Another fake bank

note surfaces in Lincoln

• By Devon Bolger

A SECOND Lincoln business

has fallen victim to a counterfeit

money scam.

The Kingfisher restaurant’s

Rakesh Shetty said they’ve been

left shocked after a fake $100

note was used by a customer

sometime in the last few weeks.

“The worst part is we don’t

even know exactly when it

happened. I noticed last week

when I tried to use the money

somewhere else and ended up

getting security called on me,”

he said.

“That’s when I realised what

had happened but the note

could have been sitting there for

a while already.”

Losing the money has been a

blow to the business, Mr Shetty

said.

“It’s a lot of money and at the

end of the day we work hard for

our money like everyone else.

It’s one of those situations where

now that it’s happened we can’t

do much.”

Mr Shetty reported the

incident to the police but said

aside from advice on how to

avoid the scam in the future,

there isn’t anything they can do.

“They want us to look through

the cameras and if I knew the

exact day it happened I could,

but going through weeks

of transactions looking for

the person would be almost

impossible.”

The incident comes about

a month after Selwyn Times

reported $200 in counterfeit

notes were used at Isushi in

Lincoln. Shop manager Ben Yao

said the store was targeted by

two people using the notes.

“A woman came in and paid

with a $100 note, a few hours

later a man came in and also

paid with a $100 note,” he said.

It follows a spate of counterfeit

money in the Canterbury region

this year. Since late-March,

about 460 counterfeit notes with

a face value of about $27,000

have been circulating.

Eight people have now

been charged with using or

possessing fake bank notes.

Fast food outlets and service

stations are mainly being

targeted, a Reserve Bank

spokesman said.

The organised crime unit is

investigating the use of the fake

notes, which are made of paper,

tear easily and have visible

imperfections and missing seethrough

windows.

Detective Senior Sergeant

Joel Syme said there isn’t one

particular group of people who

are presenting the fake notes.

Improvement plan not

expected until end of year

•From page 1

It is also close to Dunsandel

School and is a safety risk to

the children walking home, Mr

Dalzell said.

“We have been working with

the New Zealand Transport

Agency to try to come up with

some solutions but we aren’t

getting anywhere”

NZTA figures show there were

three crashes causing injury

at the Browns Rd intersection

between 2008 and 2017.

Mr Dalzell said the statistic

doesn’t surprise him.

“There are a lot of unreported

close calls and that is where I’m

coming from. It shouldn’t take

somebody being killed for them

to do something.”

An NZTA spokesperson said

the agency is aware of community

safety concerns around the

intersection in Dunsandel.

It is being considered as

part of the SH1 Selwyn River

to Ashburton work currently

planned, the spokesperson said.

The NZTA announced it

would begin looking into ways

to improve the safety of SH1

between the Selwyn River and

Ashburton in 2017. Fourteen

people died and 45 were seriously

injured on this stretch of road

between 2008 and 2017.

The improvements will focus

on turning off and on the

state highway in general, but

particularly at the Browns Rd

intersection in Dunsandel.

The NZTA held a number of

community events last year and

developed a draft plan for the

project.

A final preferred option for

the improvements was expected

early this year but has not been

released.

The NZTA will now work

through the feedback received

and present a business case so it

can apply for funding.

The NZTA is hoping to

have a finalised plan ready by

the end of the year, the

spokesperson said.

Mr Dalzell said it is not

good enough and the

Dunsandel community

deserves better.

“We’re just waiting for some

disaster to happen down here

and the NZTA doesn’t want to

know about it,” he said.

Breaking the ice for a game of

• By Gordon Findlater

TRADITIONALLY 50th

anniversaries are celebrated

with gold, but Lincoln

Badminton Club celebrated

theirs with ice, and lots of it.

When a contingent of 23

Lincoln players headed to

Franz Josef to celebrate the

club’s 50th-anniversary the

original plan was for only

badminton to be played in

the township’s hall. However,

that quickly changed over a

phone call between Lincoln’s

club captain John Morrish and

Franz Josef player Graham

Berry.

The idea of taking advantage

of some local’s rates to go up

the glacier via helicopter was

mooted by Berry and then

things skyrocketed.

“I said: ‘We can take a badminton

racket and have a hit

up there’,” said Morrish.

After a short pause, Graham

said: “That’s a great idea. Leave

it to me.”

With support from Franz

Josef Glacier Guides, Tourism

Westland and local helicopter

operators, the joke became a

reality.

It was decided Morrish and

Adam Thomas would represent

Canterbury, while Berry

and Adrian Waters would

represent South Westland in

the first ever provincial game

of badminton on the glacier.

Guides went up in the

morning and flattened off an

area half the size of a standard

badminton court. The four

player’s then abseiled down to

the court before putting up a

net.

“If you were playing

at one end you had to be

tethered with an ice screw

and a short rope, so you

couldn’t disappear at the

end of the court. If you

did you wouldn’t come

back,” said Morrish.

While the players managed

to stay away from the

point of no return it’s understood

almost a dozen

shuttle cocks were lost to

a crevasse. However, most

were able to be recovered

by a guide.

Meanwhile, debate is

still raging over who won

the match more than

a week later after both

teams declared themselves

winners.

“We weren’t keeping it

accurately, but Canterbury

definitely won,” said

Morrish.

The 50th-anniversary

social trip also involved

a night in Hokitika. In

Franz Josef they played

against the local club,

enjoyed the hot pools

and sampled ethnic cuisine

at a local restaurant

with Franz Josef club

members.

The Lincoln club has

more than 50 junior

teams entered in the city

competition than any

other club.

Photos portray

Prebbleton

• By Angus Hilliard

PREBBLETON’S 150-year

history will be showcased

through photographs this

weekend at the Prebbleton

Hall.

Prebbleton Heritage is

holding a public exhibition

of 30 photographs from their

3000-strong collection.

Organiser Daphne McAven

emphasised the importance

of preserving the photographic

history of the everchanging

town.

“It is important to gather

photographs to record that

there was once a small village

named Prebbleton. Soon the

area could be another suburb

of the city and unless we collect

these records so much of

the history will be lost.”

The oldest photographs in

their collection date from the

1860s, but lately the organisation

has attempted to include

photographs from recent years.

“Most of our photos date

before the 1930s, so we

decided we should gather

more recent ones so that in

50 years time, there will be

a record of the families who

made this area their home.”

Entry is free but any

donations are welcome.

PASSIONATE:

Megan Harlick

is keen to

pass on her

knowledge

of the sports

industry in

her new role

as Selwyn

Sports Trust

chair woman.

PHOTO:

MARTIN

HUNTER

Keeping the district active

Megan Harlick, 43, has made the most out of her passion for sport and people. The Rolleston mother of two

and new Selwyn Sports Trust chairwoman talks to Jacob Page about working with elite level athletes on a

shoestring budget and encouraging young people to keep active

What is it about Selwyn

that you love so much?

We’ve actually had

two cracks at it. After

my husband got offered

a rugby contract for

12 months, we

decided to live

over here and

then we came

back. The main

reason was that

this is where our

two girls had

their friends and

this was their

community.

You have been

on the Selwyn

Sports Trust

board since

2016, how did

the opportunity

come about?

That

happened

in a

weak

moment and I think (chief

executive Mike Wilson) had

a lot to do with making it

happen. When I was general

manager of Canterbury

basketball, we had been

involved with one of the

first Koru Games, which I

think was 2014, and I’m such

a huge fan of Koru Games

as a concept that we built a

working relationship. So when

I came back, I was suffering

from an injury and I’d gone to

Mike’s wife Emma for physio

and she suggested that I go

running with Mike so that’s

what I did for six months as

marathon training, and he

ended up convincing me to

come on board. I later ran the

Melbourne Marathon, and

I am looking to do another.

I just don’t have the time to

commit to it at this stage. You

have to be super fit and really

committed and I’m just too

busy – I have a problem saying

no.

Tell me about your time

as high performance sport

manager at Softball New

Zealand from 2008-2011 and

what sort of impact did it

have on you?

That was a dream job of

sorts because I used to play

softball (to a provincial level)

and it was my life, and coming

into it after a stint at High

Performance Sport New

Zealand and going into what

was an elite level sport, but a

significantly under-funded

sport at that level, it gave you

a real appreciation of what

people are prepared to do to

play for their country. More

so the women than the men,

but the obstacles they were

prepared to overcome just

to represent their country.

In softball and in basketball

you have people hold down

full-time jobs and for me it

was a real eye-opener and that

representing New Zealand is

a real honour and the journey

isn’t always easy. In softball

you didn’t always have access

to the best player, you had

access to the ones who could

afford to pay. Eventually

something has to give for

people and you have to battle

preconceived ideas of what

people think your sport is.

You were also at

Canterbury Basketball from

2011-2014 – what were the

differences between the two

roles?

The softball was an elite

level-focused role, where

being general manager of

Canterbury basketball was

looking after the whole sport

in the Canterbury region at

all levels. The day I stepped

into the job, Cowles Stadium

got orange-stickered so we

lost everything. It’s so hard

to get money to make those

sport sustainable. It’s tough

to be able to put long-term

plans in place. Basketball

would not exist in Canterbury

without the volunteers, they

get so much mileage out of

a very dedicated bunch of

people. I knew very little

about basketball and it was a

real challenge and one that I

enjoyed.”

Talk me through what you

love about your role at Ara

Institute of Canterbury?

I come from a teaching

family – my mum is a teacher,

my sister is a teacher, and yet

I never wanted to be a teacher

but I enjoy teaching adult

students.

‘I get the chance

to inspire the

next generation’

•From page 11

I like to have the ability

to share and inspire in an

industry that I am really

passionate about. I teach into

the sport and exercise degree

and sport psychology and

health psychology. I’ve seen a

lot of the world and worked

with some amazing athletes

and now I get the chance to

inspire the next generation of

people going into that industry

and that’s really cool. My

first boss was New Zealand

Olympic Committee chief

executive and secretary general

Kereyn Smith. She encouraged

me to do what I wanted to do

at the New Zealand Academy

of Sport. I think the industry is

amazing but you don’t get into

it to make money.

What do you think is the

biggest challenge at the

Selwyn Sports Trust?

It’s about cementing our

position in the region and being

more visible. One of the best

things is our physical activators

in schools, which allows kids

to have an opportunity in sport

and recreation, regardless of

whether they are in the top tier

of talent. It’s about giving kids

positive experiences in sport

because we know that leads on

to life-long participation, so to

have a programme that allows

that is fantastic. Too many kids

have negative experiences in

sport at school and that sticks

with them for life. The fact we

have a Thursday sport model

year 5-8, where they can try

everything from cross fit to

martial arts to rippa rugby, it

all feeds into that participation

cycle and not a competitive

cycle. I want kids to stay in

sport longer because they won’t

burn out and that’s what I’m

passionate about, especially in

that drop-off of 14 to 17-yearolds.

We have to find other

ways to engage people in sport

and it doesn’t have to be in

the typical Saturday model. If

kids can play multiple sports,

the cream will still rise to

the top and there needs to be

unstructured play, as well as

structured stuff. I don’t think it

will affect the top level of sport,

it may give us more players to

choose from.

Checking homes are up to scratch

in a booming building sector

THE DISTRICT’S building

boom has led to a growing need

for experts to check houses

before they are bought.

Property inspections are a key

part of the construction industry

as the district’s population of

60,000 is expected to grow by 33

per cent in the next 10 years.

The Selwyn Times revealed

last week just over 17,000 more

houses will be built in the district

over the next 30 years – with a

target of 8600 by 2028.

Well-known Selwyn builder

Jeremy ‘Brownie’ Brown has

launched a business called

Kiwi Building Inspections Ltd,

which specialises in property

inspections.

The business was conceived

after he received a number

of requests from friends and

associates to complete building

inspections for them. After 30

years of working on and running

construction projects, it was a

natural progression to utilise

his knowledge and experience

from a different perspective, Mr

Brown said.

Having a property checked

by an expert is vital not only for

people looking at new homes, but

also for those buying established

houses.

the Selwyn Times.

Mr Brown said getting a

check is vital.

“Having an experienced

investment. It is piece of mind

when making that potential

“Picking up signs of excess

ADVERTORIAL

Our home, our village

For Tony and Irienne,

settling into Ryman

Healthcare’s Anthony Wilding

Retirement Village was an

easy decision.

“It made me happy, to

know that if anything were to

happen to one of us, the other

has a place where they are safe

and have social contact,” says

Tony, aged 74.

“I was conscious that we

were living on our own, and

it could be quite isolating,

while here if you take a walk it

takes you a lot longer than you

anticipated because there are

so many people to greet and

talk to,” adds Irienne, 72.

“It’s the peace of mind,

really. It’s having the stress

and worry of being responsible

for a house taken away.”

The couple moved into

their townhouse at the village

in 2015.

“We used to tell our friends

we’ve moved house,” says

Tony “but it just happens to be

in a retirement village!”

“It’s our home, as simple as

that,” says Irienne.

Tony, originally from

England, moved to New

Zealand with his family when

he was seven years old.

His family eventually settled

in Nelson where Irienne’s

family came from. They met

at a local dance when Tony

came home from Canterbury

University, where he studied

Physics and Maths.

“In our days you met at a

local dance,” says Irienne,

“while nowadays you meet on

the internet!”

Irienne, a trained nurse,

moved with Tony to Tokoroa

when he was offered a job.

“It was in the middle of

nowhere, and we used to travel

to Taupo, to go for a hot swim,”

says Irienne.

“We also travelled to

Tauranga because I was

homesick for the sea,”

she adds.

Tony and Irienne with sales advisor, Susie Alayne.

Eventually they moved to

Auckland where their oldest

daughter was born, then a

move down to Wellington,

where their second daughter

was born. Finally, after a

couple of years, they settled

back in Nelson with their

growing family.

“My parents and Irienne’s

family were there, so it made

sense,” says Tony.

They eventually bought a

lifestyle block, and Irienne

managed the farm.

“It was a real

Old MacDonald’s farm,”

laughs Tony.

After many years in

Nelson and retirement, the

couple decided to move to

Christchurch to be near their

daughter and grandchildren.

“Luckily we scraped through

with very little damage,”

adds Irienne.

After a few years, the couple

began looking at retirement

options “half-heartedly”.

“So, we got to the stage

where climbing ladders was

becoming a bit of a problem,”

says Tony.

“With me at the bottom

of the ladder!” adds a

laughing Irienne.

“We decided to downsize,

and really the choice was to

buy a smaller townhouse out

in the real world or go into a

retirement village,” says Tony.

“It’s in your mind a bit, I

guess. Then somebody told us

about Ryman,” says Irienne.

Tony and Irienne belonged

to a walking group and were

introduced to Anthony Wilding

when there was a morning tea

held in the village centre.

The location was perfect for

the couple, as their daughter’s

family is settled nearby.

“We couldn’t be bothered

moving again.”

Anthony Wilding village is

located in Aidaneld, Halswell,

and has fantastic views of the

Port Hills.

The village offers

independent townhouses,

assisted living in a serviced

apartment, resthome, hospital

and dementia care. The

village includes an all-weather

bowling green, indoor heated

swimming pool, spa, internal

atrium, library, gym, hair and

beauty salon, bar and shop.

Sales Advisor, Susie Alayne,

says the village has beautiful

gardens, a strong sense of

community and the setting

is unique.

“We have all the benets

of a big village but we’re

small enough that everyone

still knows everyone else,”

says Susie.

Susie says that the benet

of a townhouse is that it offers

complete independence but

with the bonus of having a

safety net for times when you

might need some help.

And that is what

really clinched it for Tony

and Irienne.

“The xed fees denitely,

and the peace of mind,”

says Irienne.

For now, the couple is still

enjoying being out and about.

“We’re still very active

outside of the village,”

Tony says.

They are part of a biking

group and like to go tramping

so the townhouse living is

perfect for them as they can

just shut the front door and

head out without worrying

about the house.

“We also love the friendships

we’ve made here, the Happy

Hours, the staff, it’s such a

friendly village,” says Irienne.

“It’s got everything we like.

It’s the people in the village

who make this home.”

And the best part of living at

Anthony Wilding?

“Not having to clean our own

windows,” laughs Irienne.

thing could I have done

huh?

The truth is we’re off on

We are going to Italy

to spend five weeks with

of getting in a bonus

to the beach and Venice,

it’ll be the first time any of

The flights themselves

and meeting the family

should make good reading

for you next week. But

before all that we’ve still

got to get all the packing

out of the way.

Which is a whole lot

more tactical with a toddler

than it was before she

was born.

My clothes and essentials

took about the usual five

minutes to get together and

Laura’s packing took much

longer, as per standard.

But getting Vittoria’s

things together was much

more involved.

Obviously, as a husband,

I’m completely unqualified

to do that unsupervised, so

I’ve provided consultation

on the content of Vittoria’s

bag about three times this

week.

Once we were reasonably

confident that Vittoria had

enough clothes in everyone’s

bags (just in case), it

was time to move on to all

of the other things – food,

toys, books, distractions,

medicines. The list goes on

and likely won’t be complete

It won’t be Vittoria’s first

her last one. She

stress-sweated like I was

So fingers crossed that

the power of occasional

walks, copious episodes of

Pingu and in-flight snacks

will prevent meltdowns

and keep my armpits dry

for as much of the 24-hour

flight as possible.

I had been recommended

to pack bags of treats for

my fellow passengers as a

peace offering/bribe.

Sorry, future fellow

passengers, I did not pack

them and the only treat

you have to look forward

to is our presence.

It may or may not be

enjoyable.

From Prebbleton to Belgium

for talented young rider

SALE

MASSIVE REDUCTIONS

• By Jacob Page

PREBBLETON cyclist Bailey

O’Donnell’s gamble on

himself appears to be paying

off after he won his first road

race in Europe.

The 18-year-old is in

the midst of a two-month

stint racing on the roads of

Belgium, an opportunity

organised by former New

Zealand cyclist Hayden

Roulston.

O’Donnell said he would

use the opportunity to try to

make the most of his talent

while he could, but he has

also been doing some parttime

building work back in

Christchurch.

O’Donnell won a 100km

race, often referred to as a

kermesse, in Deinze, west of

Flanders. He is racing for a

small under-23 Belgium team

and is loving the experience.

“Belgium is pretty much the

home of road cycling in the

world, I think it’s the biggest

sport here after soccer.

“They have many different

kinds of races on every day

of the week in different areas,

people come from all over the

world to race here. They close

the whole town down for the

race and every one from that

town comes out to watch and

WINNER: Bailey O’Donnell crosses the line after beating a field of 89 to take a 100km race

in Deinze, Belgium.

also there is always a carnival

on at the same time.”

O’Donnell said he saw an

opportunity to take control of

the race and took it.

“I decided to race a lot more

aggressive than I have been

and put myself in to the red a

lot more than usual,” he

said.

“It came down to a bunch

sprint and I didn’t know if I

had the legs but I saw a gap

open on the inside with about

300m to go and I hit it and

managed to get past everyone

SPORT

and hold on for the win by a

few bike lengths.”

O’Donnell said he still has

several weeks to go in Belgium

and hopes he can catch the eye

of team scouts and hopefully

get the chance to go back.

Film Competition

Deadline One

Month Away

The submitted films for the

“Focus for Future” Selwyn

Environmental Short Film

Awards must be in by 31st

August. These awards are

organised and hosted by

Lincoln Envirotown.

Previous years have always

seen film teams busy with

their productions during the

month of August and last

year no fewer than 19 short

films were produced for

this thought provoking and

enjoyable competition. The Awards

will be presented on September 19th

at the Lincoln Event Centre. At this

presentation the films are viewed and it

is always an “Oscar” like occasion.

Category Awards ranging from

Kindergarten to adult entries are given

with an overall prize – which last year

went to a Lincoln High School team.

The age of phone cameras has meant

that we can all be film producers and

actors and we encourage everyone

to think of an Environmental issue

of interest and concern to them, and

showcase it with a short film. Last

year six of the films were independent

entries. A variety of films are produced

ranging from video; animation; acted;

real; serious or humorous.

The independent panel look forward

to viewing the films and welcoming

teams to the Awards in September.

Design guide issued for

Rolleston Town Centre

Artists’ impression of the Tennyson Quarter, which will be anchored by Te Ara Ātea at the right-hand end.

Planning for the Rolleston Town Centre takes a step forward this week with the release of

design guidelines.

The guidelines set out a framework for the design of the new town centre, and give guidance to

developers who will be designing both private and public spaces and buildings within the area.

They are aimed at creating a distinctive new civic space, anchored by the new library, Te Ara Ātea,

and complemented by surrounding businesses to create a vibrant, welcoming public space.

The guidelines propose a series of public spaces, including the Tennyson Street ‘high street’,

which is seen as a traditional high street based around Te Ara Ātea with a mix of small scale retail

and hospitality businesses at ground level. Wordsworth Street will be predominantly a shopping

street with a large format anchor store.

The Town Square provides open space for events, public gatherings and performances, and

for community recreation. A tree-lined pedestrian promenade creates space for walking and

meeting, and links Te Ara Ātea and the Town Square, while Rolleston Reserve is an attractive,

landscaped park.

The design also proposes a series of laneways and four distinct Quarters, which allow for a range

of activities, each with its own distinct character. The first quarter to be built will be the Tennyson

Quarter, which will use contemporary styles, but with reference to Selwyn’s traditional township

high streets. Other quarters include the Town Square, the Wordsworth Quarter, an exciting retail

destination, and the Station Quarter, a commercial area that draws on the town’s railway heritage.

Council urban planner Gabi Wolfer says the Selwyn community is in a unique position to be able

to develop its own town centre. “It will be a brand new place we haven’t had to ‘revitalise’, but

one we have actually crafted to the way we want it to be,” she says.

“The shaping of this exciting project comes with responsibilities to create the best possible place

that we can all be proud of and that will work for generations to come and enjoy.”

The Council has started an Expression of Interest process, inviting developers to register their

interest in developing the retail and commercial space within the town centre. The process will

help the Council identify parties who will be capable of responding to an in-depth tender process.

Initial preparatory site work on the town centre is expected to start in the next few months. For more

information email douglas.marshall@selwyn.govt.nz.

Understanding the Treaty of Waitangi

Relationships will be at the heart of a fresh look at the place of the Treaty of Waitangi in our nation today.

Sharon Tipene, who has been a treaty educator for four years, will be hosting a workshop discussing

the importance of the treaty in our daily lives at the Lincoln Event Centre, 11.30am–3.30pm on Saturday

17 August.

The session covers topics from pre-treaty to issues today such as Ihumātao and treaty settlements,

using props, interactive discussions and stories.

Relationships and people’s stories are central to the story of the treaty and the sessions, she says. It’s

also one of the things that makes the treaty relevant to all New Zealanders.

“In this country we have tangata whenua and if we’re not that we’re tangata tiriti. It’s the treaty that

gives us as pākehā and other migrants our place to stand. It’s sometimes referred to as an immigration

visa because it’s through the treaty that space was officially created for us to have a place here.”

Her focus in the sessions is on making a space where people can have discussions in an open and

non-confrontational way and unpack the ideas they come with. “Often by the time we get to the middle

of the session people are saying ‘I wasn’t sure about coming’ or they came with a negative feeling, but

they say, ‘I’m pleased I came, it’s really engaging, why didn’t we know this before?”

As a pākehā, from New Brighton, she says the journey has been personal and who she is, is a big part of

the sessions, from becoming interested in Māori culture as a teenager, to marrying a Māori man, working

as a teacher and raising three children through a mix of Māori immersion and bilingual education.

“For us as pākehā, we have to have that discussion—what does this mean for us? We need to work that

out amongst ourselves. Part of the workshop is to help us to work through what that means for us, why is

it relevant and if it is, what does that then mean to honour both parties of the treaty in the way we live?”

Water race spraying reminder

The Council is reminding people not to spray the banks of water

races with weed killer.

Blanket spraying of the banks with weed killers often leads to damage

and can cause the banks and soil to slump in and wash away.

The Council has been become aware of a rise in the number of

incidents recently where banks are being blanket sprayed. The

slumping and the soil washing away leads to sediment in the water

race. This can block up the water race, which leads to increasing

risk of flooding, of contaminants in the water, and of damage to

plant and animal habitats.

Where these water races are near public land it also leads to

potential damage of roads and footpaths and increases risk for

people using the area.

Most water races flowing through private property are the

landowner’s responsibility for maintenance. The Council appreciates

landowners proactively doing their maintenance, but is reminding

people to please only spot spray pest plants with aquatic approved

chemicals and avoid blanket spraying of banks damaging the race.

For more information, see the water race page on our website

selwyn.govt.nz, or contact our water races team by emailing

waterraces@selwyn.govt.nz.

Getting closer to the new Selwyn

District Plan

The Council is on track to have its future District Plan ready for

formal public consultation early next year.

With local government elections coming up in October, the

Council’s District Plan Committee has held its final meeting for

the year, says Tim Harris, Council’s Environmental and Regulatory

Services group manager. Most of the proposed policies and rules

have been drafted and consulted on. Staff will now work on targeted

consultation and refining the draft provisions for the income Council

to endorse early next year.

The Proposed District Plan will be notified in early 2020 and fully in

place, subject to any Environment Court appeals, in mid-2022.

“We would like to thank everyone who’s provided feedback and

helped shaped the future District Plan so far,” Mr Harris says.

Ellesmere look to make

• By Jacob Page

ELLESMERE WILL be aiming

for a faster start against the

Cantabrians on Saturday after

their sluggish first half led

to a 29-14 loss against Mid-

Canterbury.

The new-look Ellesmere side

were held scoreless during the

first 40min at Lincoln over the

weekend and trailed 12-0 at the

break. While they did manage

two tries in the second half, the

margin proved too much to catch.

29-14 loss to

The hosts also lost the

Ashburton Auto Electrics Trophy,

which they won for the first time

in five years 12 months ago.

Ellesmere manager Michael

Sheat said the coaching staff

were happy with how with their

new combinations went in their

first game of the campaign.

“I thought we actually played

well to start and just couldn’t

get points on the board and

then they roared back at us.

Obviously, you’re bringing a lot

of guys together from various

clubs and the opposition was a

step up on club footy,” he said.

Ruck-time was particularly

physical.

“I thought there was plenty of

positives in there and I felt we got

better as the game went on.”

Sheat said it was a good

indication of where the squad

is ahead of their game against

North Canterbury for the

Southbridge Shield on August 24.

“We know where we need to

be for the game against North

Canterbury,” he said.

Colts beat

development

squad for

third time

in four years

• By Jacob Page

THE ELLESMERE colts made it

three wins in four years over the

Mid-Canterbury development

team with a 22-21 win at Lincoln

on Saturday.

The 25-man squads meant

there were plenty of changes as

Ellesmere used their first hit-out

of the season to prepare for their

main game against North Canterbury

on August 24.

Ellesmere team manager Dave

Beatty said they out-scored the

visitors by four tries to three,

with all but one of them scored

by the forwards.

“Being a younger side playing

against men, we had the idea of

trying to run them around. But

conditions were quite boggy and

didn’t allow it, so I was really

happy with how the forwards got

stuck in and more than held their

own.”

No points were scored in the

first or last 20min of the game,

and the crucial moment came

just after halftime when Sam

Bright scored from a rolling maul

to give Ellesmere the lead.

•The colts will play the

Ellesmere Keas development

team on Saturday.

Southbridge show mettle

in draw with Broadfield

• By Jacob Page

SOUTHBRIDGE finally showed

what they were made of to start

the all-important third round

of Selwyn premier netball with

a 57-all draw against Broadfield

on Saturday.

With the third round deciding

the semi-finalists in five weeks,

Southbridge produced their

best performance of the season

to prove they could be top-four

contenders after they pushed last

year’s finalists all the way.

In other results, Greenpark B

started swiftly and never looked

back in a 57-49 win over

Lincoln A and defending

champions, Greenpark A swept

aside newly promoted Prebbleton

A 72-37.

Southbridge A coach Sarah

Ormandy said her side played

well enough to win having led

by two goals late in the fourth

quarter but she says a draw

would do.

“We were in the lead right to

the end but a draw is good, certainly

better than losing by one.

“I felt we definitely had it over

them for the first half.

“We had minimal turnover and

we got turnovers off their ball.

“Our timing was good and the

shots were going in.

“I knew this performance was

there,” she said.

Broadfield coach Yvonne

Crichton-Hill said working on

some defensive combinations

and battling through

injuries were a priority.

She said her team was

outplayed for much of

the first three quarters

but she was happy how

her team battled back

to earn two competition

points.

Greenpark B player/

coach Mechelle Barltrop

said she couldn’t

have been happier with the outcome

of her team’s game against

Lincoln but the start needs some

improving.

“We were 5-0 down early and

I thought here we go again but

we went back to basics and the

shooting circle really stepped up

and we put it together.’’

The result reversed the loss

Greenpark B suffered to Lincoln

in round two.

“To prevent them a bonus

point could be quite important

so winning by more than seven

goals was great for us.

“We didn’t panic, we aren’t

a fast team and when we try to

Yvonne

Crichton-Hill

SPORT

play fast, we throw the ball away.

“Lincoln have a tall defensive

unit so we had to use our composure.”

Defending champions

Greenpark A continued

to roll with a comfortable

win over Prebbleton in

spite of missing five starters.

Coach Zaylie Sullivan

said in spite of the comfortable

result, she knew

Southbridge this Saturday

would be a tougher challenge.

“That’s a game which could be

tricky,” Sullivan said.

“We’ll need to be on our game

and hopefully we can get a few

players back.”

This Saturday’s games see

Lincoln play Prebbleton, Southbridge

battle Greenpark A and

Broadfield and Greenpark A

square-off.

Results – Broadfield A 57,

Southbridge A 57; Greenpark B

57, Lincoln A 49, Greenpark A

72, Prebbleton A 37.

Points – Greenpark A 5,

Greenpark B 5, Southbridge A

Table-toppers inflict

heavy defeat on Lincoln

LINCOLN COMBINED are

clinging to eighth spot in the UC

Championships following a 54-12

defeat to table-toppers Nelson

College, on Saturday.

The result means Lincoln will

need to scratch out at least a

bonus point against Christchurch

Boys’ High School this Saturday

to stay in the top eight.

The large Nelson College pack

forced Lincoln to think about

playing running rugby on a day

that dawned sunny in spite of a

heavy overnight downpour.

theme of slow starts continued.

However, Lincoln’s fitness

seemed to keep them in the game

as they only trailed 21-7 at the

break.

The half-time team talk seemed

to do wonders for Nelson College

who were in a rampant mood

in the second half, scoring tries

from all parts of the field as they

strengthened their grip on top

sport on the ladder.

Lincoln need to hope that

Mrs Skelton said it’s a

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Helping to solve training

need for wool industry

A critical need to train shearers and wool handlers is being addressed by the introduction of

Learner Wool Handler, Introduction to the Woolshed and Learner Shearer courses by Primary ITO.

The three “micro-credential” courses

are bite-sized pieces of learning aimed at

recognising or teaching specific skills for

the workplace on the job within a short

timeframe.

“What makes the issue so pressing, and

why the wool industry is one of the first

to have micro-credentials being released,

is that right now there are no recognised

industry qualifications available in New

Zealand for shearers and wool handlers,”

says Primary ITO chief executive Linda

Sissons.

“This is incredibly important for the

wool industry but it’s also an example of

one of the future directions of training

for all primary industries.”

Dr Sissons says that with job openings

forecast to grow substantially in wool

harvesting in the coming years, training

will be critical as New Zealand faces

competition from overseas for our

shearers and wool handlers.

The micro-credentials are officially

recognised and overseen by New

Zealand’s education system.

“One of the things we know about our

industries is that they’re all crying out for

people. Preferably already skilled but if

not, they’re prepared to invest to develop

the skills they need on the job.

“The real shift we’re working on is the

focus on skills rather than big up-front

qualifications. A micro-credential puts

the emphasis on `just in time’ learning,

rather than a lengthy `just in case’

qualification.”

At the top end of the spectrum,

Primary ITO’s new micro-credential

in biosecurity is at Level 5 on the New

Zealand Qualifications Framework

and pitched at agribusiness managers

and owners. The wool courses are at

Level 2 and take approximately four

weeks of total learning, practising, and

assessment.

“They mean businesses can bring on

new workers and ensure they develop

essential skills for the woolshed before

investing in further training,” says Dr

Sissons.

“It also recognises that shearing gangs

move around a lot – workers can learn

wherever they are and fit it in whenever

best suits the job.”

Despite the current absence of

recognised entry level wool harvesting

qualifications, people do currently learn

on the job from their more experienced

colleagues but the micro-credentials will

help provide a base level of skills and a

qualification to demonstrate to future

employers that they have those skills.

Primary ITO is this year developing

a full suite of wool harvesting

programmes, in addition to the microcredentials,

which are expected to be

launched in 2020.

More information on the courses is

Selwyn biodiversity

projects receive a boost

Ten biodiversity projects in the Selwyn

Te Waihora zone received a financial

boost with the Selwyn Waihora Water

Zone Committee allocating $63,000 of

Immediate Steps funding.

Projects allocated funding included

restoration of hill country wetlands

and enhancement of one of the

main tributaries to Te Waihora/Lake

Ellesmere, receiving between $2000 and

$12,800 with landowners and project

partners contributing a further 30-60

percent, boosting the overall value to

around $216,300.

Five new and five ongoing projects

received funding. These include

Maffey’s Road stream restoration (third

year of funding) - $6167; Washpen

Ford Restoration (third year) - $5600;

Windwhistle bluffs (second year)

- $6200; Sanford mudfish habitat

enhancement (second year) - $8000;

Waikirikiri springs protection (second

year) - $2000; BlackHills wetland

restoration (first of two years’ funding)

- $5000; Washpen Road wetland

enhancement -$6220; Harts Creek

enhancement - $12,800; Haldon Pastures

Stream Enhancement - $2700 and

Rockwood wetland protection (first of

three years’ funding) - $8,700.

Zone committee co-chair Les

Wanhalla said it was “inspiring” to hear

Ben Richards from Rockwood in the

high country talking at their committee

meeting about his ongoing commitment

to biodiversity on his land which has

continued for generations.

“Having made biodiversity protection

and enhancement top priority when

we wrote our Zone Implementation

Programme a number of years ago,

we have now delivered 127 projects

since 2011 via the Immediate Steps

programme.”

Selwyn Waihora Zone Delivery Lead

Johannes Welsch said the support

of these projects was the outcome of

“good relationships with landowners,

supporting their native biodiversity

enhancement efforts, protecting

wetlands, and creating greater awareness

of biodiversity in our community.”

The Rockwood project involves

the enhancement and protection of a

1.5-hectare wetland located near the top

of the Hororata catchment.

“The landowners have a great track

record with numerous biodiversity

projects located elsewhere on their

property,” Johannes Welsch said.

“This includes protection of a 30+ha

beech block, the enhancement

of numerous other springheads

wetlands, and restoration of riparian

cover in the ford just to name a few.

“The proximity of the Rockwood

wetland project to these, as well as

its position within the Hororata

corridor, makes this project key in

the stepping stone – green pathway

- Ki uta ki tai - priority in the

Selwyn Waihora zone.”

The Harts Creek Restoration

project is in collaboration with the

Harts Creek Streamcare Group which

has completed years of restoration

work along the creek.

“The project has the full support of

the landowners who have contributed

greatly to the long-term health of the

waterway with significant planting

and willow/weed control,” Johannes

Welsch said. “The project will

increase and improve the condition of

available habitat for our native species

which rely on Harts creek.”

Pilot One Stop Waste

Management Shop

- Selwyn (Ellesmere) 9 September -

The Ministry for the Environment is

funding an Agrecovery programme to

deliver six pilot rural waste management

one-stop-shop events in September. The

events will enable farmers and growers to

drop of chemical waste and plastics at one

of the depots for safe disposal.

At the scheduled Selwyn (Ellesmere)

event, farmers and growers will be able to

drop off chemical containers, silage and

bale wrap, fertiliser and feedbags, waste oil

and unwanted chemicals for safe disposal

and in some case recycling. All items will

be able to be dropped off at one collection

point. The Selwyn (Ellesmere) event will be

held on 9 September

Agrecovery held two similar trial events

in 2018 in Geraldine and Matamata and

collected nearly 20 tonnes of rural waste.

The success of these events prompted the

expansion of the pilot into four new areas

with the assistance of Ministry funding.

Geraldine Farm

Participants at the

2018 Agrecovery Rural

recycling events.

Manager, Aaron

Gorrie participated

in the 2018 event

and hosted an open

day on the farm he

manages prior to the

pilot event so people

could find out more

about the project.

“Like most

farmers we are

committed to

sustainable farming.

It’s important to

leave a legacy for

future generations.

We have a Farm

Environment Plan in

place, and we work

hard to ensure we meet the requirements of

the plan. This is a great opportunity to have

unwanted chemicals correctly disposed of.

“Since the 2018 event we have changed

the way we manage our waste chemicals

and containers. Containers are now rinsed

immediately and stored separately in an

easily accessible place and we make regular

drops to the Agrecovery collection site,”

said Aaron.

The Agrecovery Foundation started

in 2007, with a product stewardship

programme designed to help clear plastic

agrichemical containers and drums

from farms and orchards around the

country. The agrichemical industry funds

the programme and recycles waste. The

programme also sustainably disposes of

unwanted agrichemicals. Pop up events are

held throughout the country and waste can

also be dropped at fixed collection sites.

However, the September 2019 events will be

unique because of the increased number of

items that can be dropped off.

Selwyn District Council is committed to

working with the rural community to help

find sustainable options for disposing of

farm waste. The Agrecovery One Stop Shop

rural waste recycling events provide a great

opportunity for the community to dispose

of waste safely, especially in more remote

rural communities. We encourage people

to get behind these events and register,”

said Council Solid Waste Manager Andrew

Boyd.

Waste must be prepared properly before

drop off and farmers and growers interested

in registering for the events and finding out

more about how to prepare material for

drop off should visit www.agrecovery.co.nz

“We know that farmers and growers care

about their land and ensuring a sustainable

future for future generations. We also

know how hard it is to dispose of on-farm

waste safely. That’s why these pilot events

are so important. They enable us to better

understand what works for farmers and

the future services that we can provide to

help with safe and environmentally friendly

on farm waste management,” said Simon

Andrew CEO of Agrecovery.

SELWYN TIMES

Prepare the soil for planting potatoes

WITH THE promise of spring

just around the corner, it’s time to

be thinking ahead.

August is the month to prepare

soil for when the weather

becomes brighter.

Potatoes

Such a staple and stalwart crop,

you need to start gearing up for

the upcoming potato-planting

season.

Those of you who know your

spuds will already have seed

potatoes quietly “chitting” away

somewhere cool indoors. Once

the sprouts are finger length and

the soil has warmed a smidge,

they can be planted out in

September.

The sprouting phase does take

four to six weeks; hence you need

to get a wriggle on if you want

fresh new potatoes in December.

While the seed spuds are

sprouting, take an hour or two

to prepare the soil, work it over

with a fork, blend in well-rotted

compost and, a week before

planting, work through some

potato fertiliser.

Adding the spud food prior to

planting prevents burning the

delicately sprouted seed potatoes.

Vegetables

If your patch has been vacant

THINKING AHEAD: If you want potatoes for Christmas, they should be planted next month. In the meantime it’s time to get the soil

ready. Daffodils should be making an appearance soon, dust off your vases and remember to change the water every third day.

over winter, now’s the time to get

it ready for spring planting before

the soil warms up. Hoe off weeds

and, when the soil isn’t boggy,

turn it over and blend in layers of

compost or sheep pellets – one or

the other, not both. Then, rake it

level and leave to settle for a few

weeks.

Seedlings to plant out now

include silver beet. Look for

brightly coloured hybrids or the

mega-sized ‘Ford Hook Giant’,

which can grow stems up to 1m

long.

Rows of radishes can go in,

too. Try white ‘Hailstone’ for

something different, or stick

to the reliable round red ones.

Remember, both the leaves and

roots can be eaten.

Asparagus crowns are dormant

and ready to be planted. Look for

the biggest and fattest clumps,

and avoid anything that are dry

and withered.

Spring flowers

With the official start of spring

just around the corner it is time

to start dusting of those vases

and filling them with spring

flowers such as daffodils, snow

drops, hyacinths, anemone,

ranunculus and irises. When

picking these flowers, only pick

the flower stem. Leave the foliage

in the ground and allow it to die

down naturally, as this supplies

the hard-working bulb all the

nutrients it needs to produce

flowers for next season. Fill the

vase to the top with water and

change it every third day.

Tasty Bites

Moreish treats using oats and rice flour

Chock full of fruits, seeds,

and oats, this muesli bar

recipe by Joan Bishop is

a healthy treat. The fat

content and added sugar

is low and the tastes and

textures of the fruits and

spices blend with and

enhance the slightly

nutty flavour of wholegrain

oats. Then top it off with

a decadent yet delicate

black rice steam cake

Pineapple muesli slice

Makes 40-44 slices

Ingredients

50g butter, chopped

3 Tbsp honey

425g can crushed pineapple in

juice, well drained

3 Tbsp lime juice

140g crystallised ginger, chopped

120g dried apricots, chopped

120g dried pineapple pieces,

chopped

1 large egg, size 7, lightly beaten

100g pumpkin seeds

100g sunflower seeds

100g desiccated coconut

140g whole grain oats

100g standard flour

1 tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp ground nutmeg

THERE’S NO denying that sport

utility vehicles are the cars of

choice for today’s buyer. Sales

figures globally are heavily biased

in that direction.

The choice is overwhelming,

especially in the mid-size

sector. If family or recreational

requirements facilitate the

need for an SUV, but you want

something just a little bit different

in your purchase- something

biased towards sporty - then

Skoda has the car for you, the

Kodiaq RS.

The Kodiaq has been with

us for a year or so now, and it

lands here in three variants, an

entry-level model at $44,990, a

high-grade Sportline at $64,990,

and just recently an RS model has

joined the ranks. The RS sits at

$71,990 and is characterised by its

flashy looks, inside and out, and

high power driveline.

Herein lies a secret. Under

the bonnet sits a 2-litre diesel

engine, and while you wouldn’t

ordinarily expect diesel to be the

basis for performance, you have to

remember that Skoda, in the past

has had many sports models with

diesel engines, and I can report

that is a concept the company does

very well, even in motorsport.

Directions

Place the butter, honey,

crushed pineapple and lime juice

in a large saucepan over low heat

and stir until melted and mixed.

Add the ginger, apricots and

dried pineapple. Slowly bring to

the boil.

Cover with lid and very gently

simmer for 5min. Remove from

the heat and cool well before

stirring in the beaten egg.

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C

on bake. Line a slice tin (about

20cm x 33cm) with non-stick

In the Kodiaq, the

turbocharged four-cylinder unit

pumps out 176kW and a feisty

500Nm at the bottom end. The

latter is the ingredient that makes

the RS so special, not only is the

specific output high, maximum

torque is available from 1750rpm

to 2500rpm, which is the area

where the engine wants to

constantly work. As a result, there

is dynamic engine performance,

mid-range boost will offer a

4.2sec overtaking time (80-

120km/h), and an off-the-mark

time of 7sec to make 100km/h

from a standstill.

Even if you aren’t in a hurry,

there is a constant willingness

from the engine that tantalises

the driver, and if you take into

account there is manufactured

exhaust sound which throbs

constantly, the RS is hard to drive

without wanting to give it some

freedom.

There are several drive modes,

and depending on which is

activated the exhaust sound can

be encouraged or left in a more

subtle tone. The Kodiaq is also

a pretty useful off-roader, there

are modes which channel power

more usefully through the fourwheel-drive

platform.

baking paper.

Combine the pumpkin seeds,

sunflower seeds, coconut,

wholegrain oats, flour, cinnamon

and nutmeg in a medium-sized

bowl and mix well.

Tip the dry ingredients into

the saucepan containing the

fruits and stir to mix. This is

quite a stiff mixture. Tip into the

lined slice tin. Spread out evenly

over base of the tin with the back

of a spoon or wet hands (mixture

does not stick to wet hands). It is

important the mixture is pressed

down firmly into the tin.

There is also another element

which adds spice to the

driveline, power is channelled

through a seven-speed direct

shift transmission, and this

configuration is one of my

favourites.

DSG is more of a manual-type

gearbox, although there are only

two foot pedals; the beauty of

this is the lack of load through

the transmission, engine power

is mostly unimpeded, and

with quick shifts the feeling of

performance is well enhanced.

I took the test car through

some of the tight, hilly roads

close to Sheffield, and although

the weather had closed in and the

roads were greasy I felt at ease in

the RS. Grip in the first instance

is supplied by sticky Pirelli

Scorpion tyres (235/45 x 20in)

and they offer substantial steering

feel along with direct turn-in.

Bake in the preheated oven for

30-35min until set and lightly

golden. Do not overcook.

Remove from the oven and

allow to cool completely in

the tin. Leave overnight before

slicing, if time permits.

Using the baking paper edges,

lift the slice from the tin and

place on a chopping board.

Cut into squares or oblongs as

desired.

Black rice steam cake

Serves 8

Ingredients

200g butter

250g black glutinous rice flour

6 large eggs

250g (generous cup) caster sugar

½ tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

2 Tbsp sweetened condensed

milk

½ tsp vanilla extract

Directions

You’ll need a cake tin and a

steaming pan or basket large

enough to hold it. Melt the butter

and use a little to grease the

inside of the cake tin well. Dust

with just a little black flour to

help stop the cake sticking. Start

the water boiling underneath

It has to be remembered the

Kodiaq has traditional SUV

handling, it sits high at almost

1.7m, and with long-travel

suspension it isn’t as nimble as

a sedan, however, the spring

and damper rates arrest body

movement well, along with the

parameters that allow for high

occupant comfort. You’d expect

nothing less from this Czech

Republic manufacturer which has

drawn significant build quality

direction from the Volkswagen

group.

Perhaps one of the most

exciting aspects the RS offers is

the point-to-point ability, it will

lunge out of corner and blast

without lag through the paddle

shift system to the point where

speed needs to be chiselled off,

high grade brakes take care of

that and with the grip naturally

associated with four-wheel-drive

the steamer so it is ready for the

cake.

In a large bowl, whisk together

the eggs, sugar and salt to get a

frothy mixture with the sugar

dissolved. Stir in the black

glutinous rice flour and baking

powder.

Stirring as you go, gradually

add the condensed milk, the

vanilla extract and finally the

melted butter. Keep stirring

until the mixture is smooth and

velvety.

Pour into the cake tin and sit

in the steaming basket.

Wrap the lid with a clean

tea towel – this will stop water

dripping on to the cake and

create a tight seal.

Steam over a medium-low

heat (making sure there is always

water in the pan). How long it

takes depends on the size and

shape of your pan – between

25-40min.

Check every 5min or so

towards the end of the cooking

time. The top should be gently

springy with not too much

wobble below; then poke in a

skewer to check the middle has

a delicate crumb rather than raw

batter.

Remove from the steamer and

leave to cool for 10min in the tin

before turning out on to a rack to

cool. Serve with strawberries.

Kodiaq RS continues Skoda sport tradition

Ross Kiddie

SKODA KODIAQ RS: Sporty variant with diesel engine.

• Price – Skoda Kodiaq RS,

$71,990

• Dimensions – Length,

seven-speed automatic.

• Performance –

• Fuel usage – 7.7l/100km

the RS feels well attached to the

road, it is dynamic and forceful

when asked to respond.

This is all from a car which

has a vastly different role to play

as well, it is the quintessential

mid-size seven-seater that also

looks after its occupants in terms

of fitment and specification and

safety. At $72k it needs to be well

appointed, and I can report it

leaves little to chance.

It also has fuel economy on its

side, Skoda claims a combined

cycle average of 7.7-litres per

100km (36mpg).

It takes a very special car to

win the New Zealand Motoring

Writer’s Guild Car of the Year

Award and the Kodiaq took

honours for 2017.

Obviously, that recognition

speaks for itself, the RS adds

another ingredient into the

equation, it certainly captured my

attention with its performance,

economy yet practicality all

thrown in for good measure.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Eaves serve

a purpose

For centuries, homes have featured

eaves, created by extending the roof out

over the sides of the building. This is still

the main approach to constructing homes

today.

Eaves are both an architectural feature

and functional, protecting the wall

cladding from the elements and helping

regulate the sun.

During the warmer months, the sun is

higher in the sky. Eaves limit the distance

it can penetrate into a room with the

result a cooler house while lessening the

potential for bleached home furnishings.

Over winter, the sun sits lower in the sky

so reaches further into rooms, drawing in

natural, free heat.

Most houses in Selwyn have soffits,

the main reason being a hip or gable

roof with an overhang is still the most

affordable way to build.

While aesthetically appealing,

incorporating eaves into a roof design

also helps protect the cladding, keeping it

cleaner so reducing maintenance with less

likelihood of ugly water streaks on the

exterior walls as can occur where a home

has no overhang. These are particularly

noticeable where a plaster look has been

chosen for the external cladding.

There is also the issue of weather

tightness. Very seldom do single level

dwellings with good overhangs become

leaky homes. The eaves help keep rain off

the walls where it counts so there is less

potential for moisture to penetrate the

walls where they are most vulnerable.

Most modern homes with an overhang

have the windows hard up to the soffit.

This eliminates the need for a head

flashing (a metal strip that keeps water

out from above the window). While there

is the option for the roof to finish flush

with the start of a wall or have a smaller

degree of overhang, incorporating a soffit

means a more straightforward build with

less materials and labour incurred. When

the roof is to finish flush with the walls,

there is a need for more careful design to

ensure a weatherproof home. Additional

costs will be incurred due to the need

for extra features such as flashings over

Hip & gable roofs with eaves are

cost effective build options.

windows and the cladding taken up above

the window.

Having generous eaves over entryways

and windows can keep rain from

getting into the home, something that is

particular helpful in the summer when

wanting to air the house on a muggy

damp day.

An added advantage of a home with

eaves is there can be sheltered garden

spots for growing frost sensitive plants

or those which prefer the dry. There may

also be places to tuck some items up

against the house so they are out of the

weather. Stretching the eaves out to create

a portico offers the opportunity for an

outdoor space sheltered from the sun and

rain.

Porticos offer shelter.
