Mason gets a special visit from All Blacks<br />

DREAM: Mason Ratten with two of his heroes – All Blacks Codie Taylor and Jack Goodhue.<br />

• By Devon Bolger<br />

MASON RATTEN was looking<br />

forward to what he loves most<br />

– being back out on the rugby<br />

field during winter.<br />

But the Rolleston eight-yearold’s<br />

world was turned upside<br />

down in February when he was<br />

diagnosed with leukaemia.<br />

On Thursday All Blacks Joe<br />

Moody, Jack Goodhue, Codie<br />

Taylor and Jordie Barrett made<br />

Mason’s day when he met them<br />

at Foster Park. The Crusaders<br />

and the Hurricanes fullback<br />

visited as part of their annual<br />

national tour.<br />

New tests<br />

show nitrate<br />

levels<br />

still rising<br />

in district’s<br />

water<br />

• By Devon Bolger<br />

NITRATE concentrations in the<br />

district’s water sources continue<br />

to rise in spite of limits being set<br />

to reduce the problem.<br />

The district council’s chemical<br />

testing results show nitrate levels<br />

have increased in more than half<br />

of the tested water schemes over<br />

the last two years.<br />

Dunsandel, Rolleston, Kirwee,<br />

Lincoln, Darfield, Southbridge,<br />

Sheffield, Glentunnel, West Melton,<br />

Springston and Springfield<br />

water sources all have increased<br />

concentrations, some of which are<br />

more than twice the 2017 levels.<br />

An Environment Canterbury<br />

spokesperson said the<br />

increases have come from the<br />

intensification of farming.<br />

“The 1990s is the latest phase of<br />

intensification, but concentrations<br />

were already increasing earlier<br />

than that, as fertiliser application<br />

and stocking rates increased. By<br />

the 1970s, nitrate concentrations<br />

were well above natural levels.<br />

THEY SAY a picture is worth 1000 words.<br />

On page 1 today we report on Mason<br />

Ratten, one of many youngsters who<br />

turned out to meet All Blacks at Foster<br />

Park on Thursday.<br />

Mason and his family are going through<br />

some very tough times.<br />

The youngster was diagnosed with leukaemia in February and<br />

life since has been very traumatic.<br />

But plucky Mason and his family have kept their chins up<br />

throughout. A keen rugby player before the big C struck, he met<br />

some of his idols at Foster Park, making a great day even better.<br />

And the better news is, the outlook for Mason is promising.<br />

He might even grow up to be an All Black one day. Wouldn’t<br />

that be something.<br />

Dispute over who pays<br />

to repair pot holes in tavern car park<br />

• By Devon Bolger<br />

WHO FIXES potholes in a<br />

tavern car park has turned into a<br />

dispute between the leasees and<br />

landlord.<br />

Carol and<br />

Richard Hansen,<br />

who lease the<br />

West Melton<br />

Tavern from<br />

businessman<br />

Alan Edge, say<br />

he is responsible<br />

Alan Edge for filling them<br />

in.<br />

But Mr Edge says under the<br />

terms of the lease it is Mr and Mrs<br />

Hansen’s problem – and cost.<br />

“The lease says they’re responsible.<br />

They use it, I don’t so I<br />

won’t be fixing it,” he said,<br />

The Hansen’s reject that claim<br />

and say they only lease one-sixth<br />

of the property from Mr Edge,<br />

which covers the building and<br />

one car space, and he is responsible<br />

for the rest of the car park.<br />

“We are now just hoping he will<br />

come to the table and fix the holes<br />

but if not, we may consider taking<br />

legal action,” Mrs Hansen said.<br />

The lease began in 2007 and<br />

ends in 2021.<br />

The issue came to light on the<br />

West Melton Community facebook<br />

page when the Hansens<br />

made a post saying the potholes<br />

were out of their control.<br />

Mrs Hansen said they wanted<br />

to share their side of the story as<br />

they have been criticised for the<br />

car park by customers.<br />

“It’s not our fault and we’re<br />

the ones who have become the<br />

laughing stocks and we are the<br />

ones people are criticising.”<br />

“We have fixed the damage in<br />

the past but this now is way out<br />

of hand. We aren’t looking at a<br />

quick fix and we’re not liable for<br />

the type of maintenance that is<br />

required.”<br />

The Hansens think the potholes<br />

are being made worse by<br />

drivers using the car park as a<br />

thoroughfare to avoid the State<br />

Highway 73 and Weedons Ross<br />

Rd intersection.<br />

More and more motorists have<br />

started doing it after the West<br />

Melton Village Retail Centre<br />

opened in 2016, Mrs Hansen said.<br />

“The problem is huge now.<br />

You really have to pull in here so<br />

slowly because it’s just that bad.”<br />

“Even if we fixed it ourselves,<br />

in a month it’s going to be back<br />

to where it was because of all of<br />

the usage.”<br />

“NZTA should be putting<br />

An NZTA spokesperson said<br />

the car park is private property<br />

so it is over to the owners to<br />

manage it for their purposes.<br />

“We advise all drivers to take<br />

care around busy intersections,<br />

slow down and obey the road rules.<br />

THIEVES, VANDALS HIT CLUBS<br />

The West Melton Rugby Club<br />

had a second gas bottle stolen<br />

from its shed last week. Club<br />

president Ants Calder said it<br />

was disappointing and a burden<br />

to have to keep replacing them.<br />

Another bottle was stolen from<br />

the same shed in May. The<br />

Rolleston Warriors Rugby<br />

League Club has had its storage<br />

container vandalised after its<br />

prize-giving last weekend. The<br />

container was at Brookside Park<br />

and was found covered in graffiti.<br />

High nitrate concentrations concerning<br />

•From page 1<br />

“The increases have been<br />

greatest in areas where<br />

the groundwater comes<br />

predominantly from rainfall<br />

that percolates through soil. This<br />

includes the <strong>Selwyn</strong>-Waihora<br />

zone. The rainwater leaches<br />

nitrate from the soil and carries<br />

it from the land surface into<br />

groundwater,” said the ECan<br />

spokesperson<br />

Federated Farmers was<br />

approached for comment but<br />

was unable to<br />

respond.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>-<br />

Waihora zone<br />

committee<br />

chairwoman<br />

Megan Hands<br />

said the nitrate<br />

Megan<br />

Hands<br />

levels in the<br />

district are not<br />

a direct result of<br />

farming practice now.<br />

“We talk about nitrate being<br />

in the post which is from land<br />

use that’s occurred over a<br />

number of years, and we are only<br />

starting to see it come through in<br />

those concentrations now,” she<br />

said.<br />

ECan chief scientist Tim Davie<br />

said we will continue to see<br />

increases for potentially up to 20<br />

years until they start to taper off.<br />

He said there is a nitrate issue<br />

in the district compared to the<br />

rest of Canterbury.<br />

“Are there high nitrate<br />

concentrations in <strong>Selwyn</strong>?<br />

Definitely. What we are<br />

concerned about is two things,<br />

biodiversity and public health,”<br />

Dr Davie said.<br />

“There is a health risk<br />

associated with high nitrate<br />

concentration. The main one is<br />

when you get above a certain<br />

amount, you are at risk of blue<br />

baby syndrome, which affects<br />

newborn babies that are bottlefed<br />

and it can cause health<br />

problems for them.”<br />

Dr Davie said there is a lot<br />

of contention around what<br />

concentration of nitrate we<br />

should be concerned about.<br />

“A recent Danish study says<br />

when you get above 0.88mg/L<br />

there is an increased risk of<br />

colorectal cancer. It hasn’t been<br />

proven so it hasn’t changed our<br />

ACTION PLAN:<br />

Dairy farms<br />

will need to<br />

make a 30 per<br />

cent reduction<br />

in nitrogen<br />

loss by 2022<br />

in a bid to<br />

reduce rising<br />

concentrations<br />

in the district’s<br />

water.<br />

drinking standards but it does<br />

suggest that high nitrate levels<br />

in drinking water are not a good<br />

thing.”<br />

The current maximum<br />

acceptable level of nitrate in<br />

drinking water is 11.3mg/L<br />

As of February, the water<br />

source on Illinois Drive in<br />

Rolleston has a concentration of<br />

6.98. In Dunsandel it is 6.54 and<br />

in Darfield it is 5.02.<br />

Waterways Centre for<br />

Freshwater Management director<br />

Jenny Webster-Brown said those<br />

numbers are relatively high.<br />

“Any time something is getting<br />

up to half of the recommended<br />

drinking water standard, it’s time<br />

to pay attention, especially if it’s<br />

increasing,” she said.<br />

It is likely things will get a lot<br />

worse before they get better, Ms<br />

Webster-Brown said.<br />

“We won’t know whether the<br />

systems we have put in place are<br />

working for many years to come<br />

because of this lag time.”<br />

In 2016 ECan<br />

set nitrate limits<br />

for farmers across<br />

the region as part<br />

of the Canterbury<br />

Land and Water<br />

Regional Plan<br />

In <strong>Selwyn</strong>,<br />

the limits were<br />

set specifically<br />

at a point<br />

where nitrate<br />

Jenny<br />

Webster-<br />

Brown<br />

concentrations would be reduced.<br />

Farmers now need to monitor<br />

the amount of nitrogen being lost<br />

in the soil and ensure they don’t<br />

exceed their baseline nitrogen<br />

loss rates from 2009-2013.<br />

By 2022, high emitters need to<br />

significantly reduce nitrogen loss<br />

rates – dairy farms, for example,<br />

will need to make a 30 per cent<br />

reduction.<br />

Survey under way to gauge bus use<br />

• By Devon Bolger<br />

A COMMUNITY group is<br />

doing its own public transport<br />

survey because it fears usage<br />

numbers for the Leeston bus<br />

trial might be incorrect.<br />

Enviro Ellesmere says an<br />

Environment Canterbury bus<br />

trial could be skewed because<br />

the time the<br />

trial is being<br />

conducted is<br />

at low patronage<br />

times.<br />

The bus<br />

leaves Leeston<br />

each weekday<br />

Jade Arnold<br />

for Christchurch<br />

at 7am,<br />

and returns<br />

from Christchurch at 4.37pm<br />

and averages 27 passengers a day.<br />

Enviro Ellesmere member Jade<br />

Arnold said the group has had<br />

about 60 responses so far to its<br />

online survey asking people why<br />

they use the bus and how often<br />

they would ideally like to.<br />

The survey is more about looking<br />

into the type of bus people<br />

would use and do need rather<br />

than what they are using currently,<br />

Mrs Arnold said.<br />

“The way the ECan trial works<br />

SKEWED: Enviro Ellesmere is conducting a survey on public<br />

transport needs in the area because it is concerned the<br />

Leeston bus trial isn’t getting accurate user numbers.<br />

is that they only count the<br />

number of people who actually<br />

use the service. It concerns me<br />

because that completely misses<br />

the needs of people who can’t<br />

catch that specific bus.<br />

“I’m worried it makes it look<br />

as though the bus isn’t wanted or<br />

needed here as much as it really<br />

is,’’ Mrs Arnold said.<br />

ECan manager of public transport<br />

strategy Edward Wright<br />

said the times were set after a<br />

survey showed that was when<br />

people would use the bus most.<br />

“The funding available for the<br />

trial only allows for one service<br />

each way per day, and the survey<br />

results indicated that the greatest<br />

number of people wanted to<br />

travel at the times the trial bus is<br />

operating.”<br />

The trial began in January this<br />

year and will run until October.<br />

In July the service was also<br />

extended to include Southbridge.<br />

Mr Wright said the extension<br />

increased the cost of the bus, so<br />

without any increase in patronage,<br />

the viability of the service is<br />

declining.<br />

“For the service to become viable,<br />

usage needs to increase and<br />

we are considering ways that this<br />

might be possible.”<br />

Once Enviro Ellesmere survey<br />

has ended the results will be<br />

averaged and graphed so it’s<br />

important to get a high number<br />

of responses, Mrs Arnold said.<br />

“After that, I want to make it<br />

publicly available so anyone can<br />

see the results. I’ll also present<br />

the results to bus operators, the<br />

district council and ECan.”<br />

4.5 per cent increase in spending<br />

across the rest of Canterbury.<br />

The amount spent on electronic<br />

card transactions rose 11.7 per<br />

cent to $90.1 million.<br />

Unemployment also dropped<br />

to 2.1 per cent, down from 2.2 per<br />

cent in the previous quarter and<br />

almost half of the national unemployment<br />

rate of 4.1 per cent.<br />

District council chief executive<br />

David Ward said the figures are<br />

an encouraging sign of the continued<br />

desirability of the district.<br />

“The diversity of our economy<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong> is a strength and<br />

Fire brigade gets ute<br />

THE LINCOLN Volunteer<br />

Fire Brigade has a new<br />

emergency response<br />

vehicle thanks to the help<br />

of a local business.<br />

The new Ford Ranger ute<br />

will provide the brigade<br />

with more flexibility and<br />

capability to respond to<br />

emergencies, chief fire<br />

officer Jeremy Greenwood<br />

said.<br />

The vehicle was<br />

purchased with a grant<br />

from Pub Charity and with<br />

the support of The Famous<br />

Grouse Hotel.<br />

It has been fitted with<br />

more equipment and<br />

configured in a way<br />

to make it easier for<br />

firefighters to access. It<br />

has also been fixed with a<br />

front-mounted winch to<br />

assist with stabilisation<br />

and recovery.<br />

“The ute will be used<br />

in a support role for<br />

operational incidents and<br />

will also assist members<br />

with the delivery of fire<br />

risk reduction activities<br />

and education within the<br />

community and local<br />

schools,” Mr Greenwood<br />

said.<br />

He said recently they<br />

have seen how valuable<br />

the ability to use a high<br />

used a ute extensively to<br />

ferry additional people and<br />

“Any volunteer fire<br />

brigade is only as good as<br />

its local community and<br />

we’re incredibly fortunate<br />

to have such wonderful<br />

he was thrilled to be able to<br />

assist local firefighters.<br />

“The hotel has a long<br />

favourites<br />

THE LINCOLN Women’s<br />

Insitute’s annual concert opened<br />

with a bracket of songs by one<br />

of United States’ most popular<br />

musical theatre composers.<br />

The songs Can’t Help Singing, A<br />

Fine Romance, and The Last Time<br />

I Saw Paris by Jerome Kern were<br />

some of the crowd favourites,<br />

institute member Beth Keoghan<br />

said.<br />

A piano solo by Mrs Keoghan,<br />

who is the group’s accompanist,<br />

was then performed.<br />

“Variations of the Scottish<br />

tune Ye Banks and Braes o’ Bonnie<br />

Doon was extremely well<br />

received by the audience. It is a<br />

favourite air arranged for piano<br />

by Miss Lavinia E Hawley,” she<br />

said.<br />

The final bracket of songs<br />

had an Irish theme with songs<br />

such as When Irish Eyes Are<br />

Smiling, Galway Bay and Rose of<br />

Tralee.<br />

“The audience enjoyed joining<br />

in the chorus of Gypsy Rover.<br />

Several solo items throughout<br />

the concert added to its variety.<br />

The whole programme was<br />

greatly appreciated by all,” Mrs<br />

Keoghan said.<br />

Canterbury’s fastest selling<br />

Said Mason’s mother Jamie<br />

Kuru: “He was very happy to<br />

meet them, he is a huge All<br />

Blacks fan. He’s going through<br />

a lot at the moment so to get a<br />

chance to talk to them really<br />

boosted his confidence.<br />

“He was smiling for the rest<br />

of the day. As his mother, it was<br />

really amazing to see.”<br />

Mason was a happy and active<br />

kid before he was diagnosed, and<br />

played rugby for Rolleston.<br />

His cancer meant he couldn’t<br />

play this year but he can’t wait<br />

to be out on the field again, Ms<br />

Kuru said.<br />

It was Mason’s after school<br />

care, <strong>Selwyn</strong> Kids, which first<br />

noticed something was wrong.<br />

“They said they had noticed he<br />

was more tired than usual. He<br />

was really weak and just had no<br />

energy at all. I looked at him and<br />

thought he really isn’t himself,”<br />

said Ms Kuru.<br />

Mason’s teacher at Rolleston<br />

Primary School also mentioned<br />

his tiredness and he soon began<br />

to break out in bruises all over<br />

his body.<br />

Said Ms Kuru: “At that point,<br />

we had already gone to the<br />

doctor a couple of times and<br />

‘Huge All Blacks fan’ fighting leukaemia<br />

FIGHTER: Mason Ratten was diagnosed with leukaemia<br />

in February and is about to start his final chemotherapy<br />

treatment.<br />

they had just put it down to him<br />

being a busy kid and getting<br />

tired.<br />

“Then the third time we went<br />

back, we were going to demand<br />

a blood test, but as soon as the<br />

doctor saw him he knew straight<br />

away that it was more serious.”<br />

The results came back and<br />

the family got a call that same<br />

SELWYN TIMES<br />

night telling them to bring him<br />

straight to the hospital.<br />

“I remember being in shock.<br />

It’s truly a mother’s worst<br />

nightmare.”<br />

Mason spent the next 10 days<br />

in hospital. It has been a terrible<br />

time for the family.<br />

“In <strong>September</strong> last year I lost<br />

my father to cancer as well, so<br />

when this happened to Mason it<br />

was really hard, it’s been quite a<br />

tough year,” said Ms Kuru.<br />

She is incredibly proud of<br />

Mason. “He’s never complained,<br />

he just gets on and does it. He’s<br />

in the mindset that he just wants<br />

to hurry up and get it over and<br />

done with so he can get back<br />

to playing rugby and running<br />

around with his friends.”<br />

Mason is about to begin his<br />

final round of chemotherapy and<br />

his prognosis is positive.<br />

“We’re feeling relieved that<br />

it’s coming to the end, but<br />

even though we are finishing<br />

treatment, there is still another<br />

couple of years afterward where<br />

he will go in for monthly visits<br />

for monitoring and things.<br />

“There’s still a long way ahead<br />

but he will be going back to<br />

school and starting to go back to<br />

a normal life.”<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> businesses are being urged to<br />

enter the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Responsible Business<br />

Awards which will culminate in a<br />

Presentation Evening on 24th October at<br />

which their achievements and initiatives<br />

will be celebrated.<br />

Entry is by an easily completed survey<br />

taken online. Once this has been<br />

submitted a Coordinator will pay a short<br />

visit to the business to talk about their<br />

practices in regards to Sustainability and<br />

Community engagement. The process has<br />

been streamlined greatly since previous<br />

awards and those businesses which have<br />

already entered this year, are reporting an<br />

enjoyable exercise. The aim is to have<br />

surveys completed before the end of<br />

<strong>September</strong>.<br />

Achievements are recognised, awards are<br />

made and prizes are given, but previous<br />

participants have highlighted many other<br />

good reasons for being involved in this<br />

project. These include such things as:<br />

• The benefits of discussing practices and<br />

receiving free advice<br />

• Free publicity for their efforts<br />

• Determining “where they are at” as<br />

regards their impact<br />

• Feeling that they are part of <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s<br />

efforts to maintain healthy communities<br />

and environment<br />

Each business receives a Certificate, A<br />

positive Feedback letter, and a Digital<br />

“Badge” for media publicity.<br />

In an age when the public are becoming<br />

more aware of the need for environment<br />

friendly practices and strong communities,<br />

Lincoln Envrirotown Trust sees this<br />

project as important and beneficial to all.<br />

Many businesses have received a survey<br />

by email but in our growing district,<br />

new businesses are frequently opening<br />

therefore businesses that have not<br />

received anything, but wish to<br />

involve themselves in this exciting<br />

project should contact Dave at<br />

Ski club celebrates 90 years<br />

MT CHEESEMAN ski<br />

club is celebrating its<br />

90th birthday and being<br />

the oldest in the South<br />

Island.<br />

The club held a birthday<br />

party and retro ski day<br />

to mark the occasion last<br />

week.<br />

Club member Bruce<br />

Alexander, 87, said he remembers<br />

starting out at Mt<br />

Cheeseman.<br />

“The first time I came<br />

up to Cheeseman the club<br />

was 16-years-old and I was<br />

13-years-old. I came with<br />

the Britten family. Mrs<br />

Britten was the sister of Allen<br />

Giles.”<br />

Allen Giles, a Hokianga<br />

farmer, on holiday at Castle<br />

Hill in the winter of 1929,<br />

explored the area which is<br />

now the Mt Cheeseman Ski<br />

Area.<br />

This led to the formation<br />

of the Canterbury Winter<br />

Life among the birds helps Rolleston<br />

Andrew Crossland has<br />

been recognised by Birds<br />

New Zealand with a Robert<br />

Falla memorial award. The<br />

Rolleston resident and<br />

Christchurch City Council<br />

park ranger talks to<br />

Louis Day about how birds<br />

have shaped his life and<br />

career<br />

What exactly does your role<br />

consist of?<br />

A big part of what I do is<br />

habitat development – I don’t<br />

just look at birdlife. The default<br />

is birdlife because we don’t have<br />

lions, tigers and giraffes around<br />

the landscape. But in New<br />

Zealand by default a person who<br />

is a wildlife manager, which is<br />

what I am, goes into birdlife. My<br />

interest is how to develop habitats<br />

or how to recognise habitats that<br />

are of value to wildlife and how<br />

to enhance them and protect<br />

them, and how to manage the<br />

behaviour and activity of people.<br />

So I look at Christchurch as a big<br />

national park and it has layers. It<br />

has got street layers, the factory,<br />

housing, it has also got the parks<br />

and it’s about facilitating wildlife<br />

across the city without annoying<br />

people and without people<br />

annoying them.<br />

Would you say birdlife is one<br />

of your biggest passions in life?<br />

The revolution<br />

in heat pumps<br />

is here now!<br />

KEEPING WATCH: Andrew Crossland has been studying birds<br />

since he as a teenager.<br />

Oh yes, absolutely. It’s a calling.<br />

It has given me a really good<br />

career and has taken me around<br />

different parts of the world. I<br />

am probably better known in<br />

Indonesia than what I am in New<br />

Zealand because I have done a lot<br />

of exploration over there, and in<br />

some cases, I was the first person<br />

to visit since Marco Polo. Down<br />

in Sumatra, I have identified<br />

huge bird populations people did<br />

not know existed anymore. That<br />

all happened because in 1985 I<br />

found a bird on the estuary in<br />

Christchurch called the asian<br />

dowitcher and, at that time, it<br />

was one of the rarest birds in the<br />

world and it wasn’t really known<br />

where they wintered. They breed<br />

in the Arctic and no one knew<br />

where they went to. I was very<br />

interested in this particular<br />

species and two years later some<br />

scientists surveyed the southern<br />

part of Sumatra and found quite<br />

a few thousand of these birds.<br />

I finished university in 93 and<br />

I found some old World War 2<br />

military maps of the northern<br />

part of Sumatra, about a 1000km<br />

north of where the birds had<br />

been found. So I went to Sumatra<br />

in 94, 96 and 97 and many years<br />

since, and I doubled the world<br />

population of this bird. While I<br />

was doing that I found thousands<br />

of other species of bird that<br />

migrate from northern Asia<br />

down to Indonesia and Malaysia<br />

and also Australia. Some made it<br />

to New Zealand. I found that first<br />

record for New Zealand when<br />

I was 15, and that bird really<br />

changed my life in terms of me<br />

exploring that part of the world. I<br />

speak the language and I met my<br />

wife there and my kids are half<br />

Kiwi and half Sumatra and we<br />

spend a lot of time over there.<br />

Where did you grow up?<br />

I was born in Motueka, but I<br />

grew up in Christchurch. I went<br />

to Linwood Avenue Primary,<br />

Linwood Intermediate, Linwood<br />

High and then Canterbury<br />

University.<br />

How long have you been<br />

involved with birdlife?<br />

I have done it in a few phases.<br />

I started doing this work in<br />

MEARES WILLIAMS<br />

LAWYERS<br />

LINCOLN OFFICE<br />

43 Gerald Street, Lincoln<br />

1984 when I was 14-years-old, I<br />

think, and became a consultant<br />

for the city council and then I<br />

worked as an ornithologist for<br />

the water services unit from 1997<br />

to 1999, then I went overseas and<br />

I changed careers and was an<br />

embassy officer. I worked for the<br />

New Zealand High Commission<br />

Singapore and then I returned<br />

and I have been a park ranger<br />

since the end of 2002 till now. So<br />

I have been monitoring wildlife<br />

in Christchurch for 35 years.<br />

What is it you love the most<br />

about your job?<br />

It is great to get paid to do<br />

what I love. It is great to start<br />

on something when you’re a<br />

teenager and get paid to do what<br />

you love to do – not many people<br />

have that privilege. I cruise<br />

around the peninsula all the time<br />

doing wildlife stuff, that’s way<br />

better than working in a factory.<br />

I have worked in a factory, I have<br />

worked in a big flash office and<br />

worn the big expensive shoes,<br />

and now it is great to wear a pair<br />

of shorts and go down to the<br />

bush and the swamp.<br />

Why should people care about<br />

birds?<br />

We should care about all of our<br />

indigenous wildlife. They have an<br />

inherent right to live and it is also<br />

a major part of our culture and<br />

birdlife is one of the most visible<br />

parts of our native wildlife.<br />

conservationist spread his wings<br />

I believe all wildlife should be<br />

looked after. Birds also represent<br />

connection throughout the<br />

country with the migration<br />

networks throughout New<br />

Zealand and overseas. Basically,<br />

we have a responsibility to look<br />

after wildlife here and it makes<br />

complete sense to keep an eye<br />

out for it. There is no greater<br />

attraction than looking at<br />

colourful birds in the tree. We<br />

share the planet with these other<br />

life forms and we need to be not<br />

solely focused on our ‘you’re<br />

born, consume and die cycle’.<br />

Has local birdlife deteriorated<br />

or improved since you started in<br />

your role?<br />

I really started getting involved<br />

in major conservation efforts in<br />

1993. That’s when the wetlands<br />

began to get built and there was a<br />

period of mass innovation and a<br />

lot of investment in the city from<br />

then into the quakes.<br />

There was an incredible<br />

increase of birdlife and pretty<br />

much every species of bird<br />

was increasing until the<br />

quakes. When the quakes hit.<br />

Unfortunately there were some<br />

outbreaks of avian botulism and<br />

thousands of birds died over<br />

several years, but we now have<br />

managed to stop that. We have<br />

been very active in combating<br />

that, and last year for the first<br />

time, we had no avian botulism.<br />

What do you see as the biggest<br />

threat to birdlife?<br />

I think it is human<br />

disturbance. I think that predator<br />

control is important and the<br />

provision of habitat is also<br />

important. But what we are doing<br />

is we are trying to put people<br />

in every space where wildlife<br />

is. Humans have occupied big<br />

chunks of the world but they left<br />

a bit around the fringes, like the<br />

edges of wetlands. But now we<br />

have got adventure sports and<br />

other stuff and we are occupying<br />

them for wilderness cycleways<br />

and other activities and now<br />

we are occupying places where<br />

wildlife has been consigned to,<br />

and we are displacing wildlife. In<br />

Christchurch, there is this sort of<br />

thing where people need to enjoy<br />

the wildlife and the environment,<br />

and that is true, but we need to be<br />

very clever in the way that we are<br />

planning our reserve networks<br />

to make sure every important<br />

site has a sanctuary corner that<br />

is not disturbed. We aren’t doing<br />

enough and so there are some<br />

significant threats to wildlife,<br />

which are almost all to do with<br />

too many people in the wrong<br />

place.<br />

BIRD’S-EYE VIEW: Andrew<br />

Crossland surveying birds,<br />

including the asian dowitcher,<br />

on the Indonesian island of<br />

Sumatra.<br />

How long did it take you to<br />

learn how to spot a flock of<br />

hundreds of birds and within<br />

seconds identify their species<br />

and accurately estimate their<br />

numbers?<br />

I guess it took a couple of<br />

years to learn the skills. I’m not<br />

the only person who can do<br />

that obviously. When I began<br />

to get into wildlife as a young<br />

guy, before the Department of<br />

Conversation was formed, there<br />

was an organisation called the<br />

New Zealand Wildlife Service<br />

and also the Ornithological<br />

Society, which is now called<br />

Birds New Zealand. There were<br />

a couple of people there that<br />

acted as mentors and gave me the<br />

opportunity to learn the skills<br />

from them and then you quickly<br />

learn stuff yourself, so I’m sort of<br />

self-trained, but certainly rubbed<br />

shoulders with some highlyskilled<br />

people and a lot of that<br />

knowledge has rubbed off on me.<br />

How did you train yourself?<br />

People say to me ‘you know<br />

the name of a whole load of<br />

bird and animal species’, so I<br />

say to them name 50 types of<br />

cars or dogs and they can do it.<br />

Anyone who is interested in a<br />

certain field and wants to gain<br />

skills in that field quickly learns<br />

through motivation and by using<br />

resources. In the wildlife field, we<br />

have field guides and books with<br />

all the species on them and you<br />

learn the field characteristics of<br />

these species and you learn the<br />

calls by simply being out in the<br />

environment. It’s no different to<br />

a car dealer who can name lots of<br />

different types of cars.<br />

What was your reaction<br />

to winning the Robert Falla<br />

memorial award?<br />

It is quite a prestigious award<br />

and normally you get it for a<br />

lifetime achievement. It came<br />

out of the blue and I wouldn’t<br />

have given it to myself until 30<br />

years time if I even deserved it.<br />

It is a great privilege to get it. It<br />

is kind of just a bit early. Totally<br />

unexpected and I’m kind of<br />

overwhelmed by it. I am sure<br />

there are a lot of people out there<br />

who have done more than me who<br />

should have got it before I got it.<br />

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY<br />

High-profile former politician to<br />

present on state of the environment<br />

Lincoln University looks forward to hosting<br />

Dr Marilyn Waring as this year’s presenter of<br />

the annual State of the Nation’s Environment<br />

Address.<br />

The event is free to the public and all are<br />

welcome.<br />

Dr Waring is an author, academic, and activist<br />

who became New Zealand’s youngest Member<br />

of Parliament when she was elected as a National<br />

Party MP in 1975 at the tender age of 23.<br />

Nine years later, she provoked the 1984 Snap<br />

Election after informing Prime Minister Robert<br />

Muldoon that she would be voting for the<br />

Labour Opposition’s nuclear-free New Zealand<br />

legislation.<br />

Muldoon publicly decried her for her<br />

“feminist anti-nuclear stance”, which he said<br />

was threatening to bring down his one-seat<br />

majority government.<br />

Leaving parliament that year after the fourth<br />

Labour Government came to power, she<br />

attended Waikato University and gained a PhD<br />

in political economy.<br />

Dr Waring is well known for helping to<br />

found feminist economics, which argues that<br />

gender equality, sustainable development, and<br />

women’s rights should be included in economic<br />

modelling and performance.<br />

In 1988, she wrote If Women Counted: A New<br />

Feminist Economics, a book that is still cited<br />

by researchers, policymakers and economists<br />

worldwide.<br />

It includes a critique of the concept of GDP,<br />

which she says disregards the unpaid care work<br />

performed mainly by women, yet counts “oil<br />

spills and wars as contributors to economic<br />

growth”.<br />

For the past 13 years, Dr Waring has been a<br />

professor of Public Policy at AUT in Auckland,<br />

focusing on governance, political economy,<br />

gender analysis and human rights.<br />

Her work has had a significant influence<br />

on other academics, United Nations policies<br />

and government accounting in a number of<br />

countries.<br />

For her presentation at the State of the Nation’s<br />

Environment Address, Dr Waring will discuss<br />

the current Government’s wellbeing budget<br />

and its likely impact on the<br />

wellbeing of the environment.<br />

The university is celebrating<br />

the 20th anniversary of its<br />

annual event, which focuses<br />

on an aspect of the current<br />

condition of the environment<br />

in New Zealand.<br />

Since its inception in 1999,<br />

the address has attracted<br />

a number of notable New<br />

Zealand speakers, including<br />

the Rt. Hon. Helen Clark,<br />

the Hon. Nick Smith, and Tā<br />

Mark Solomon.

CultureFest bringing the<br />

world to <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

CultureFest is back for <strong>2019</strong> bringing the world to <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

Now in its fourth year, the popular festival will be celebrating the diversity of <strong>Selwyn</strong> through food,<br />

art, sport and performance, and have a go activities.<br />

CultureFest will take place on Sunday 29 <strong>September</strong>, 10am–4pm, at the Lincoln Domain.<br />

Visitors can enjoy more than 25 different stage performances by groups from 16 different<br />

countries ranging from Ireland to Indonesia and here in Aotearoa. There will also be workshops<br />

allowing people to experience different cultures from Iran to China and beyond, plus a culinary<br />

world tour with food from more than a dozen different countries including Nigeria, Egypt, Ukraine,<br />

Spain and Iran.<br />

Council Sport Recreation and Wellbeing manager Dave Tippett says CultureFest is part of the<br />

Council’s work to help people from all cultures feel welcome in <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

“We want to celebrate people from all cultures and ethnicities who have made <strong>Selwyn</strong> their home<br />

because of the positive enriching impact that diversity has on our community. CultureFest is a<br />

real celebration of that – it’s an experience for the senses, for people listening to and seeing some<br />

amazing performances, arts and crafts, tasting and smelling exceptional, authentic ethnic food<br />

and having a go.”<br />

This year Lincoln University Student’s Association (LUSA) has joined the Council and the<br />

Christchurch Multicultural Council on the organising committee. Taking part in CultureFest will<br />

replace its similar International Night event that was held around the same time, LUSA general<br />

manager Fiona Kay says.<br />

Lincoln has the highest proportion of international students for a New Zealand university and<br />

students and some staff will be taking part as volunteers, stall holders and performers, she says.<br />

“Our students and staff are very much part of the community, they live in the community, work in<br />

the community and some have families with children going to school here. It’s just great engaging<br />

with the community and showcasing the diversity of our student population.”<br />

Strong growth in economy continues<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> residents and visitors continue to back the steady economic growth in the district, according to<br />

latest economic data.<br />

Quarterly economic monitor figures from analysts Infometrics showed Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> grew by 4.5% in the year to June <strong>2019</strong>, compared to 2.5% growth nationally and 1.7% growth<br />

across Canterbury. <strong>Selwyn</strong> recorded the largest annual growth in GDP of any district in New Zealand.<br />

The figures were supported by continuing growth in tourism spending and in electronic card<br />

transactions as a whole across the district.<br />

The amount spent by tourists grew by 10.5% for the year with tourists spending $117 million in the<br />

district compared to a 4.5% increase in spending across the rest of Canterbury. The amount spent in<br />

electronic card transactions rose 11.7% to $90.1 million.<br />

Unemployment dropped slightly to 2.1%, down from 2.2% in the previous quarter and almost half of the<br />

national unemployment rate of 4.1%.<br />

House sales remained steady according to the report along with house building, with the Council<br />

issuing 334 consents for new houses – almost unchanged from 339 in the previous quarter.<br />

Council Chief Executive David Ward says the figures are an encouraging sign of the continued<br />

desirability of the district.<br />

“The diversity of our economy in <strong>Selwyn</strong> is a strength and the figures show a continued confidence that<br />

this is a great district to live and do business in. It’s encouraging to see that backed up by continued<br />

tourism growth that shows other people are recognising what a great place this is.”<br />

ON THE<br />

ROADS<br />

On the roads this week<br />

Repairs are being carried out on Harper Road. Drainage works are being carried out on<br />

Malvern Hills Road and bridge repairs are being carried out at Mt White. Please stop on<br />

request at these sites. Zig Zag Road will be closed for maintenance from 6.30am–6pm<br />

Monday 2 <strong>September</strong> until Friday 20 <strong>September</strong>. A detour will be in place.<br />

Footpath construction is taking place in Darfield on North Terrace, McIlraith Street, Kimberley Road and<br />

Holmes Road. These footpaths will be closed during the construction.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Civil Defence<br />

volunteers needed<br />

We’re recruiting more volunteers to build on the district’s ability to<br />

respond to a Civil Defence emergency.<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> Emergency Management Team is hosting a<br />

recruitment evening at the West Melton Community and<br />

Recreation Centre on Tuesday 8 October at 7pm. Civil Defence<br />

Manager Al Lawn says the Council is looking to fill roles in all three<br />

of its volunteer teams including Response Team, Welfare Team and<br />

Community Response Team.<br />

“This latest round of volunteer recruitment will complement the strong<br />

base of Civil Defence volunteers who live in the district,” Mr Lawn says.<br />

“We’re looking for people to help ensure we can manage a long<br />

duration event, such as an earthquake generated by the Alpine<br />

Fault, and to help the <strong>Selwyn</strong> community get through.”<br />

Do you have the skills and time to help your community?<br />

Across <strong>Selwyn</strong> there are more than 30 Community Response Teams<br />

ready to respond in an emergency to support their local area and<br />

provide information to the Emergency Operations Centre. Volunteers<br />

are required to attend one training session per year.<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> Response Team, specialised and highly trained in<br />

communications, light search and rescue, urban search and rescue,<br />

first aid, and cordon control, requires up to another eight members.<br />

The response team trains weekly.<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> Emergency Welfare Team, trained to open and<br />

operate a Civil Defence Centre, and support people who have to<br />

evacuate their homes, needs another four volunteers. The Welfare<br />

Team trains fortnightly.<br />

Volunteer members from each team will be available on the night to<br />

answer any questions.<br />

Under-16s run away with Tiny Hill Shield<br />

VICTORIOUS: The Ellesmere under-16s with the Tiny Hill Shield after their 41-5 win over North<br />

Canterbury at Oxford on Saturday. ​<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

THE ELLESMERE under-16s<br />

were able to use their speed<br />

on a dry track to beat North<br />

Canterbury 41-5 and win the<br />

Tiny Hill Shield at the Oxford<br />

Oval on Saturday.<br />

Coach Derek Smith said the<br />

players’ mobility around the field<br />

was high on his mind when the<br />

team was picked – and it paid<br />

dividends on a sunny day.<br />

“I felt we built well during<br />

the week, had two very good<br />

trainings on Tuesday and<br />

Thursday, and at the captain’s<br />

run on Friday I thought the team<br />

was on fire.<br />

“We wanted to play a faster<br />

game, a wider game, and keep<br />

them running around, which is<br />

SPORT<br />

how the game panned out.<br />

“We wanted a mobile tight five<br />

that could keep it going for the<br />

full 70min and I thought we had<br />

the best team possible for a dry<br />

track.”<br />

North Canterbury scored first<br />

but Ellesmere replied with two<br />

tries to take the lead into halftime.<br />

“The first half team wore them<br />

down and then in the second<br />

half we scored a lot of points very<br />

quickly.<br />

“Defence was really crucial<br />

for us. North Canterbury got<br />

a try from a pick-and-go early,<br />

but they got close plenty of other<br />

times, but each time we stepped<br />

up and repelled them.”<br />

Smith said Adam Gualter was<br />

a standout playing the first half<br />

at fullback and the second 35min<br />

at No 10.<br />

“It was a gamble for me to<br />

move him because I hadn’t seen<br />

him play first-five, but I was told<br />

he’d go well and, yes, he carved<br />

up there.”<br />

Smith said Lachie Hlaca<br />

impressed at hooker, playing<br />

tight head prop for the first time.<br />

“He gave us tremendous<br />

mobility and was relentless<br />

in defence. I thought he was<br />

outstanding.”<br />

Slow start cost Ellesmere<br />

the McGiffert Trophy<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

A SLUGGISH start cost the<br />

Ellesmere under-18s in their 35-<br />

24 defeat to North Canterbury<br />

at Oxford on Saturday.<br />

Ellesmere trailed 28-0 at<br />

half-time before mounting a<br />

comeback to be four points<br />

down with 10min to play. But<br />

North Canterbury scored a<br />

final try to put the game out of<br />

reach and lift<br />

the McGiffert<br />

Trophy.<br />

Co-coach<br />

Mike Wilson<br />

said his team<br />

were their<br />

own worst<br />

enemy in the<br />

Mike Wilson<br />

first half.<br />

“We just leaked too<br />

many points. We had a few<br />

opportunities but it took us a<br />

long time to get into the game.<br />

“We lacked a little bit of<br />

penetration and punch<br />

and tried to go wide too<br />

quickly.<br />

“North Canterbury were<br />

more effective and a lot of their<br />

points came from turnover ball<br />

and they showed good support<br />

play to make us pay.<br />

“We had dropped balls and<br />

missed passes, a lot of little<br />

things.<br />

“The start highlighted the<br />

fact we’d only had a week with<br />

them and it’s hard to form those<br />

combinations and trust in<br />

that time.”<br />

Wilson said he was thrilled<br />

with the character the team<br />

showed to get back into the<br />

game in the second half.<br />

“We constructed points well,<br />

there was more penetration,<br />

there was more accuracy and<br />

patience to go with it.<br />

“We had some boys come on<br />

and do some good things. Liam<br />

Pratt came on at prop and gave<br />

us some good carries.<br />

“Brandon Boyle came on and<br />

was really physical and gave us<br />

what we knew he would with<br />

ball in hand so that was good<br />

to see.<br />

“For the guys to make a game<br />

of it like they did late in the<br />

piece was a really good sign for<br />

the group.”<br />

LEAP: Georgia<br />

Allison is<br />

preparing<br />

to compete<br />

at events in<br />

Morocco and<br />

Australia.<br />

Darfield High show-jumper<br />

off to Morocco and Sydney<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

IT PROMISES to be a busy<br />

couple of weeks for Darfield High<br />

School show-jumper Georgia<br />

Allison.<br />

The 18-year-old will fly out to<br />

Morocco at the end of the week<br />

for the Global Amateur Tour<br />

where she will ride local<br />

horses and try to clear<br />

1.20m jumps.<br />

Georgia (right) will then<br />

represent New Zealand<br />

at the Marcus Oldham<br />

Australian inter-school<br />

championships in Sydney.<br />

The event at the Sydney<br />

International Equestrian Centre<br />

runs from <strong>September</strong> 29 to<br />

October 2.<br />

Allison, who lives in Oxford,<br />

will be part of an eight-strong<br />

all women’s team to compete in<br />

the dressage and show-jumping.<br />

However, she will compete solely<br />

in the show-jumping.<br />

Allison said show-jumping has<br />

always been part of her life.<br />

“I’ve been riding since I was<br />

born it feels like – I did my first<br />

competition when I was two.<br />

“International opportunities<br />

are what I’ve been working<br />

towards for a while and I’ve been<br />

short-listed for things but to get<br />

these opportunities is exciting.<br />

“It will be good to test<br />

myself against international<br />

competitors.”<br />

Allison is a selfdescribed<br />

perfectionist.<br />

“I think I’m mildly<br />

OCD, everything has to<br />

be perfect, but I think<br />

that’s why I did a lot of<br />

show-hunting to win<br />

in that grade. In showjumping<br />

you go against the clock<br />

and as long as you jump well<br />

that’s what matters.<br />

“I’m hoping for clear rounds<br />

at both competitions, given I<br />

don’t know the horses I’ll be<br />

riding.<br />

“In Sydney we’ll only be<br />

jumping 1.05m, which will be<br />

different to Morocco, but if I<br />

can be consistent then I’ll be<br />

happy.”<br />

Fourth semi-final<br />

spot still on the line<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

LINCOLN A and Southbridge<br />

will play for the last semi-final<br />

spot in <strong>Selwyn</strong> premier netball<br />

on Saturday at the Lincoln Event<br />

Centre.<br />

With Broadfield A, Greenpark<br />

B and Greenpark A already<br />

assured of a place in the top<br />

four, it is a must-win game for<br />

Lincoln A, while Southbridge A<br />

could earn a draw and progress<br />

through.<br />

Week five results went<br />

according to form, with<br />

Southbridge beating winless<br />

Prebbleton A 53-51 in an<br />

unconvincing performance.<br />

Broadfield A continued to<br />

look like the team with the most<br />

momentum as they cruised past<br />

fellow semi-finalists Greenpark B<br />

52-32 on the back of a dominant<br />

second half, and Greenpark A<br />

kept their slim hopes of finishing<br />

top-of-the-table alive with a 62-<br />

42 win over Lincoln A.<br />

Lincoln A coach Dawn Dalley<br />

felt her squad of eight deserved<br />

to make the top four after the<br />

level of commitment the team<br />

had shown throughout the long<br />

season.<br />

“We had trials back in the<br />

SPORT<br />

middle of February, so it makes<br />

for a long season, but they’ve<br />

stuck to their guns all year and it<br />

is a big game for us,” she said.<br />

“I look at this game against<br />

Southbridge as quite important<br />

because it may determine<br />

which ones from our<br />

team come back next<br />

season as we build for the<br />

future.”<br />

Broadfield A coach<br />

Yvonne Crichton-Hill<br />

said she was “very<br />

satisfied with the win over<br />

Greenpark B.<br />

“We were only up by<br />

one at the end of the first quarter<br />

and four by half-time.<br />

“It wasn’t good enough to have<br />

a lead and let it whittle away so<br />

we did well to limit our errors<br />

in the second half and build the<br />

lead.<br />

“We got more turnovers but<br />

treasured the ball while being<br />

more patient.”<br />

A win over Prebbleton A<br />

on Saturday will earn Broadfield<br />

Yvonne<br />

Crichton-Hill<br />

A top spot.<br />

Greenpark A coach Zaylie<br />

Sullivan said her team’s win felt<br />

closer than the eventual 20-goal<br />

margin.<br />

“Lincoln had their moments<br />

and we felt like we weren’t all<br />

that far ahead at times,” she said.<br />

“We had a slow start, we’d let<br />

Lincoln get on a run but what<br />

was good is that we were able to<br />

pull it back when we needed to<br />

do so. We slowed things<br />

down and eventually<br />

limited our mistakes.”<br />

The two Greenpark<br />

teams will meet in the<br />

final week of the roundrobin<br />

with the prospect of<br />

playing each other again<br />

seven days later in a semifinal.<br />

Results: Southbridge A 53,<br />

Prebbleton A 51, Greenpark<br />

A 62, Lincoln A 42, Broadfield<br />

A 52, Greenpark B 32.<br />

Points; Broadfield A 14,<br />

Greenpark B 12, Greenpark A<br />

12, Southbridge A 6, Lincoln<br />

Saturday draw: Lincoln A v<br />

Southbridge A; Broadfield A<br />

v Prebbleton A; Greenpark A<br />

v Greenpark B.<br />

SELWYN RURAL LIFE<br />

Native forest saved for future generations<br />

A remnant of native forest placed under<br />

covenant will support native species and<br />

help protect a stream that flows into Lake<br />

Ellesmere/Te Waihora.<br />

Landowners Brent and Anna Fisher<br />

are preserving the native bush on<br />

their property, with support from the<br />

Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust,<br />

and funding from the World Wildlife<br />

Fund, Environment Canterbury and<br />

Christchurch City Council.<br />

Only around one percent of the original<br />

forest area of Banks Peninsula remains,<br />

supporting a wealth of plant and animal<br />

biodiversity.<br />

The Fishers bought the land at Ataahua,<br />

near the eastern end of Lake Ellesmere/Te<br />

Waihora, seven years ago to expand their<br />

farming operation.<br />

“We were always aware of the bush and<br />

Brent and<br />

Anna Fisher<br />

it’s beautiful,” says Brent. “The previous<br />

owner had an ecological survey done by<br />

botanist Hugh Wilson and there’s a tōtara<br />

in there that apparently could be the<br />

biggest tōtara tree on Banks Peninsula.”<br />

When the Fishers bought the land, the<br />

bush block was unfenced and stock could<br />

wander in, damage vegetation, disturb the<br />

waterway and sometimes be a challenge to<br />

muster.<br />

They approached the Banks Peninsula<br />

Conservation Trust for help in fencing the<br />

important remnant off and a conservation<br />

covenant in perpetuity has been placed<br />

over the land, now known as Sally’s Bay,<br />

so it will be preserved and protected for all<br />

time.<br />

“It was a lot bigger than we anticipated<br />

but once we got in there looking to see<br />

where you could fence and what was most<br />

practical, what we would gain from a<br />

farming point of view by grabbing some<br />

more, wasn’t very much at all so we went<br />

with it,” Brent says.<br />

The trust managed the process, securing<br />

funding, contracting fencers, engaging<br />

land and ecological surveyors and<br />

providing the necessary legal support.<br />

The now fenced-off block contains<br />

extraordinary original remnant forest and<br />

expansive regenerating second-growth<br />

bush, with gorse acting as a nurse crop on<br />

the margins for native seedling to flourish<br />

under, says trust covenants officer Marie<br />

Neal.<br />

“The rate of native species regrowth<br />

in this favourable south-facing gully has<br />

been rapid and will be even faster now<br />

that stock have been excluded,” Marie<br />

says. “Protecting the spring-fed waterway<br />

which runs through it will in turn reduce<br />

sediment reaching Lake Ellesmere/Te<br />

Waihora below it.”<br />

“This covenant is an important<br />

biodiversity oasis and stepping stone in a<br />

vast surrounding pastoral landscape which<br />

will help to accommodate the increasing<br />

abundance and spread of native flora and<br />

fauna from other areas,” says Marie.<br />

“It will provide food and shelter to<br />

encourage birds, invertebrates and lizards<br />

who will in turn facilitate the spread of<br />

valuable seeds to further areas.”<br />

“There’s some beautiful species in<br />

there and it’s always nice just wandering<br />

amongst it – it’s like a different world<br />

under that canopy,” says Anna, who adds<br />

that she and Brent are now fencing off and<br />

planting other waterways on the farm at<br />

their own expense.<br />

“We’re trying to protect the water that<br />

goes off this farm and into the lake.”<br />

Diesel Blower Heaters<br />

• An industrial diesel powered blower heater, which is<br />

ideal for warming a large area.<br />

• Clean burning technology and diesel economy allow it<br />

to operate for up to 14 hours on a single tank.<br />

• Designed especially to keep operation noise to an<br />

absolute minimum.<br />

• Plug the heater into a standard three<br />

pin plug power point and turn the<br />

thermostat to the desired heat setting<br />

and the burner starts automatically<br />

and will continue operation until<br />

it reaches the preset heat setting,<br />

automatically turning itself off<br />

Young farmers sought<br />

for annual event<br />

Entries for the 52nd season of FMG<br />

Young Farmer of the Year open on 2<br />

<strong>September</strong> <strong>2019</strong>. The event is the flagship<br />

for New Zealand Young Farmers and is<br />

held in high esteem in rural communities<br />

with up to 300 contestants, who compete<br />

for the top spot.<br />

Contestants begin with the District<br />

Contest and Skills Day, and must be a<br />

registered Young Farmers member to<br />

enter. Twenty district finals are held<br />

throughout the country between October<br />

and December. Top contestants from each<br />

final go through to their local Regional<br />

Final held from February to April. The<br />

seven top Regional finalists become the<br />

Grand finalists and battle it out in July for<br />

the title of FMG Young Farmer of the Year.<br />

Contestants are put through a diverse<br />

range of practical, theoretical and<br />

technical farming challenges. Each level<br />

of the competition combines practical<br />

hands on agriculture skills and general<br />

difficulty increases as the contestants<br />

progress from districts to regionals and<br />

finally at the Grand Final.<br />

The Grand Final is a full-on two-day<br />

event including the practical day, which<br />

includes the hands on competition plus<br />

technical elements such as a project,<br />

interview and an HR challenge. The<br />

contestants must also deliver a convincing<br />

Research aims to assist<br />

M. bovis eradication<br />

New research will determine if there is<br />

a better way of prioritising investigation<br />

of farms potentially infected with<br />

Mycoplasma bovis. This would enable<br />

the M. bovis programme to more quickly<br />

identify infected farms and take action to<br />

accelerate eradication of the disease from<br />

New Zealand.<br />

The Ministry for Primary Industries<br />

and its M. bovis programme partners<br />

DairyNZ and Beef+Lamb New Zealand<br />

have issued a request for proposals<br />

from organisations to undertake<br />

the Epidemiology Research on Risk<br />

Prioritisation project.<br />

“Farms potentially infected with M.<br />

bovis are currently prioritised for follow<br />

up (casing) using several criteria. This<br />

research aims to determine if there<br />

is anything we can do to improve the<br />

current system, to enable the programme<br />

to more effectively prioritise farms at<br />

high-risk of infection for urgent casing,”<br />

explains Dr John Roche, Chair of the M.<br />

bovis Strategic Science Advisory Group<br />

(SSAG) and MPI’s Chief Science Adviser.<br />

Dr Roche says these high-risk farms<br />

are more likely to need animal movement<br />

controls applied to help slow the spread of<br />

the disease and speed up the eradication.<br />

New Zealand is the first country in the<br />

world to attempt to eradicate M. bovis, a<br />

bacterial disease that can cause significant<br />

animal welfare and productivity issues,<br />

particularly in dairy cattle, including<br />

mastitis that doesn’t respond to treatment,<br />

severe lameness and late term abortions.<br />

“This research has been identified<br />

as a priority in the Mycoplasma bovis<br />

Science Plan, developed by the SSAG<br />

to ensure research projects are directed<br />

where they will have the most impact to<br />

accelerate eradication. It also supports<br />

recommendations made in two recent<br />

reviews into the M. bovis programme,”<br />

says Dr Roche.<br />

This will be a short-term project based<br />

on analysis of existing data.<br />

The M. bovis programme has allocated<br />

up to $30 million over two years for M.<br />

bovis research projects, guided by the<br />

science plan as part of the $870 million<br />

in funding allocated to eradicating M.<br />

bovis.<br />

The risk prioritisation research is the<br />

third science plan project to go out to<br />

market. A large number of proposals for<br />

a major diagnostic research programme<br />

are currently being evaluated, submitted<br />

from researchers based in New Zealand<br />

and overseas. Quotes to undertake a<br />

study into the direct impact of M. bovis<br />

on animals and herds are also being<br />

evaluated.<br />

The M. bovis Epidemiology Risk<br />

Prioritisation request for proposals<br />

has been issued on the Government<br />

Electronic Tender Services (GETS).<br />

Plant potatoes now for Christmas dinner<br />

• By Henri Ham<br />

I’VE ALWAYS thought there’s<br />

nothing more satisfying than<br />

growing and eating your own<br />

veges.<br />

And new potatoes are at the top<br />

of my list over summer. If you’re<br />

like me and want to ensure your<br />

crop is ready for Christmas lunch,<br />

you need to get onto it right now.<br />

Depending on which variety of<br />

potato you choose, you’ll harvest<br />

your spuds in 90 to 160 days. If<br />

you want to do all your planting<br />

at once, I suggest using a combination<br />

of potato varieties to gain a<br />

staggered harvest over summer.<br />

Planting certified seed potatoes<br />

are your best chance at growing<br />

a healthy abundant crop. I<br />

don’t recommend supermarket<br />

potatoes – these are often treated<br />

with sprout inhibitors, and prone<br />

to disease.<br />

If you’re new to growing seed<br />

potatoes, the number of varieties<br />

out there can be a bit daunting.<br />

Here are four kiwi favourites I’ve<br />

picked to help get you started.<br />

Cliff Kidney is a fast-growing<br />

variety (three months) and great<br />

for containers. It has a slightly<br />

pink skin, with a firm and waxy<br />

feel – so good for boiling. Agria<br />

and Ilam Hardy varieties both<br />

take around four months to grow<br />

and again, are both suitable for<br />

HARVEST: Vary the location you grow potatoes year by year.<br />

container growing or planting in if you’ve had problems with rot in<br />

your garden. Agria is a yellow, the past.<br />

oval-shaped potato – also ideal Whichever variety you plant,<br />

for boiling. And Ilam Hardy is a try to vary your potato locations<br />

rounder and white-fleshed, allpurpose<br />

spud.<br />

And to further reduce the risk of<br />

in the garden from year to year.<br />

Lastly, Summer Delight is a disease, don’t plant them where<br />

creamy yellow spud that takes you grew your tomatoes last year<br />

around five months to mature. either. This is because they are<br />

You can use it for most types of both susceptible to the same types<br />

cooking. And it’s got a high rot of fungus and diseases – which<br />

resistance, so a good option to try can linger in the soil.<br />

Now you’ve selected your<br />

varieties, you need to make sure<br />

they’ve spouted before you can<br />

plant them.<br />

Take the seed potatoes out of<br />

their bag, and place in a light and<br />

airy space to sprout – but not<br />

in direct sun. Try placing in an<br />

open egg carton and wait for the<br />

sprouts to reach 2-4cm high. This<br />

takes a few weeks, leaving you<br />

plenty of time to get your vege<br />

plots or containers sorted.<br />

To prepare your garden, turn<br />

over old soil and remove any<br />

old clumpy vege roots, then dig<br />

through manure or compost if<br />

needed. Scatter some potato food,<br />

really mixing it through the soil.<br />

This will help you grow high yielding,<br />

quality potatoes. Next, dig<br />

your potato trench (furrow), about<br />

10cm deep and 45 cm apart, if<br />

you’re planting a second row.<br />

Place the sprouted seed potatoes<br />

25cm apart, shoots facing<br />

upwards and cover with 5cm of<br />

soil. Give an initial watering, but<br />

after this, they should be fine with<br />

a little bit of rain. Then each week<br />

add a bit more soil to cover over<br />

any new shoots until you’ve got a<br />

mound around 20cm high.<br />

If you’re short on ground<br />

space, try growing your spuds in<br />

containers. You can grab a potato<br />

planter bag with a side harvesting<br />

window, from most garden<br />

CARE: Stagger varieties so you<br />

have an ongoing supply of<br />

potatoes.<br />

centres. But really any old bucket<br />

will do just fine, as long as it has<br />

adequate drainage holes. Simply<br />

add a base layer of soil (10cm)<br />

and a sprinkling of potato food.<br />

Place two to three potatoes per<br />

container and cover with another<br />

layer of soil (5cm). Similarly, to<br />

your garden crop, keep mounding<br />

up the soil as shoots come<br />

through. Continue with this right<br />

until you reach the top of your<br />

container.<br />

In three to five months, depending<br />

on variety, it’ll be time to<br />

harvest. You can look for signs of<br />

the plant flowers dying off, but I<br />

like to just get in and have a gentle<br />

dig around to see what’s there.<br />

If they’re too small for your<br />

liking, re-cover for another few<br />

weeks – and re-brand them as<br />

new year potatoes instead.<br />

tasks to do. Although we have had<br />

some milder weather, there is still a<br />

Add colour to your garden this spring<br />

• By Henri Ham<br />

NEW LAMBS and daffodils are<br />

one of the first signs that spring<br />

is here.<br />

I always get excited when my<br />

garden shoots away and erupts<br />

into colour.<br />

Now is a great time to pop in<br />

some spring colour seedlings. At<br />

this time of year, I’m all about<br />

planting sweet peas and poppies<br />

– two ‘no-fuss’ bright annuals,<br />

that will inject some fun colour in<br />

flower beds.<br />

Sweet peas are a classic favourite<br />

in the garden. I love them because<br />

they’re easy to grow and the<br />

scented variety smells amazing.<br />

Sweet peas are prolific climbers<br />

– trailing their way 2.5m high in<br />

the right conditions. They’re ideal<br />

to climb up stakes and fences, or<br />

enhance (or disguise) a garden<br />

feature.<br />

So what are the right conditions<br />

for planting sweet peas? They like<br />

a well-drained and sunny spot<br />

in your garden. Perhaps along a<br />

fence line, or a trellis to climb up.<br />

Once you’ve got your seedlings,<br />

simply dig small holes 3cm deep,<br />

around 15cm apart. And here’s<br />

my best advice – don’t hold back.<br />

When it comes to sweet peas,<br />

a thick crop looks fantastic, so<br />

plant on all sides of your garden<br />

feature, a couple rows deep if possible.<br />

Come two to three months<br />

you’ll have a wall of spectacular<br />

colour.<br />

When they do start flowering,<br />

pick regularly to encourage more<br />

blooms. They make great cut<br />

flowers, either in a posy on their<br />

own or as part of a spring flower<br />

arrangement. If you keep up your<br />

watering, your sweet peas will<br />

continue to impress right through<br />

summer.<br />

Once you’ve sorted your sweet<br />

peas, I recommend planting some<br />

poppies in front for a cottage<br />

garden feel.<br />

Poppies look great in many<br />

garden settings – I love them in<br />

vast spaces where they can really<br />

run wild. And they self-seed from<br />

year to year, always keeping your<br />

garden interesting.<br />

California ballerina mix poppies<br />

come in an array of pinks,<br />

reds, yellows and oranges. They<br />

grow to around 40cm and look<br />

best planted in mass – creating a<br />

wild look with their double fluted<br />

flowers.<br />

If you’re after a more organised<br />

colour scheme, Anzac poppies<br />

also grow to 40cm but in a lovely,<br />

deep red. Shirley mix produces<br />

pink and red flowers with multiple<br />

fluffy layers of flowering petals<br />

and reaches around 60cm tall.<br />

Lastly, our peony mixed poppies<br />

are taller still – around 90cm, and<br />

flower in pink, red, and white.<br />

Also, the peony poppies are great<br />

for people whose climate is too<br />

warm to grow peony tubers.<br />

Once you’ve got your seedlings,<br />

plant them in a sunny spot,<br />

around 30cm apart. Give them<br />

a good initial watering, to help<br />

them get established. After that,<br />

just light watering is fine, and try<br />

not to apply too much pressure<br />

when watering, as you can squash<br />

your poppies.<br />

In around six to eight weeks<br />

a wave of colour should start<br />

blooming in your flower beds.<br />

VIVID: Sweet<br />

peas and<br />

poppies<br />

(below) will<br />

brighten<br />

your garden<br />

throughout<br />

spring.<br />

Remember to dead-head the<br />

flowers when they die, and<br />

they’ll keep on popping spring<br />

colour into your garden for many<br />

months.<br />

Property Market Update<br />

with Harcourts<br />

Market favours<br />

first home sellers<br />

Usually quieter over winter, the<br />

property market has been active in the<br />

lower price bracket.<br />

“Properties in the first home price<br />

range are likely to receive considerable<br />

interest,” says Glenys French, Branch<br />

Manager, Harcourts Four Seasons Realty<br />

2017 Ltd.<br />

Glenys expects more movement after<br />

the Reserve Bank Governor, Adrian Orr<br />

slashed the official cash rate to a record<br />

low of 1% in early August, putting<br />

pressure on the banks to lower mortgage<br />

rates even further. While this is unlikely<br />

to ‘kick start’ the New Zealand’s housing<br />

market, it will benefit people starting<br />

on the property ladder. Lower interest<br />

payments may also lead to more<br />

property investment given lower returns<br />

from banks. World events such as the<br />

trade embargoes between the United<br />

States and China can also affect market<br />

activity. When there is uncertainty people<br />

tend to do nothing.<br />

“It’s a good time to sell. I haven’t seen<br />

a market like this for a while. <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

property prices are holding up. If you’re<br />

thinking to move on, do it now rather<br />

than wait until the rush of spring,” says<br />

Glenys French.<br />

Buyers are coming from other regions<br />

such as Auckland or returning after<br />

living overseas. Emigrants and people<br />

involved in the earthquake rebuild who<br />

have become permanent residents are<br />

also looking to purchase, while the new<br />

motorway is attracting people to <strong>Selwyn</strong>,<br />

who would have been town buyers.<br />

With more buyers than sellers at the<br />

lower end, it is definitely a sellers’ market<br />

and a shortage of properties priced<br />

under $550,000 has led to multiple offers.<br />

Glenys says this might change in spring<br />

with potentially more people listing their<br />

homes.<br />

“Many buyers are making educated offers,<br />

especially if they have been working with a<br />

buyer’s agent. While there may be a standout<br />

offer, vendors are often receiving similar<br />

bids with just $10,000 to $15,000 difference.<br />

This gives a seller a true indication of what<br />

their property is worth,” says Glenys.<br />

“There’s some resistance at the higher<br />

end but there’ll always be less market<br />

demand for higher priced properties.”<br />

Glenys says many first home buyers<br />

have been looking in outer areas like<br />

Templeton where there are solid homes<br />

on TC1 land, constructed around the<br />

1970s and priced in the lower bracket.<br />

These homes allow buyers who have<br />

insufficient funds for a new build, to get<br />

onto the property ladder.<br />

While Rolleston is mostly attracting<br />

the second home buyer, smaller section<br />

sizes are leading to higher density<br />

housing, a larger number of new builds,<br />

and a tighter market. New smaller<br />

homes priced at the higher end of<br />

$400,000 to the early $500,000s, are<br />

attracting first home buyers and people<br />

downsizing.<br />

With a large number of Harcourts<br />

agents on the ground and working<br />

together to assist clients, and an auction<br />

system currently favouring vendors, there<br />

is a wealth of experience and resources<br />

available to Harcourts Four Seasons Realty<br />

2017 Ltd’s Lincoln, Rolleston and Hornby<br />

agents. In addition, three agents now offer<br />

commercial experience in the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

WHALAN AND PARTNERS LTD, BAYLEYS, LICENSED REAA 2008<br />

Knowing what could happen<br />

if you can’t complete a sale<br />

Life can sometimes take<br />

an unexpected turn<br />

when you’re buying a<br />

house. Knowing what<br />

could happen to your<br />

deposit and sale and<br />

purchase agreement<br />

if your circumstances<br />

suddenly change and<br />

you are unable to complete<br />

the deal will leave<br />

you in a much stronger<br />

position.<br />

“There are many<br />

“what-ifs” to consider when buying a home and I<br />

urge you to talk through your concerns with your<br />

lawyer or conveyancer as soon as your circumstances<br />

change,” says Real Estate Authority (REA)<br />

chief executive, Kevin Lampen-Smith.<br />

“A sale and purchase agreement is a legally<br />

binding contract between you and the seller, which<br />

becomes unconditional once the allocated time for<br />

meeting your conditions has been reached,” says<br />

Lampen-Smith.<br />

“Once the agreement for sale and purchase becomes<br />

unconditional, then you not only don’t get<br />

your deposit back, but also face the likelihood of<br />

having to purchase the property – even if you can’t<br />

afford to – or having to cancel the agreement and<br />

be sued for any loss the seller suffers as a result of<br />

you failing to settle the sale. So, if your circumstances<br />

suddenly change, you’ll need to speak to<br />

your lawyer as soon as possible.”<br />

Getting finances sorted to buy a property isn’t<br />

easy, but understanding the different deposits<br />

when you buy a house can help. There are two<br />

different kinds of deposits – the deposit you pay<br />

when you make an offer and your bank deposit.<br />

A buyer will usually be required to pay a deposit<br />

when the sale and purchase agreement is signed<br />

by both parties. The deposit paid is often about 10<br />

per cent of the total price you are offering – you<br />

can negotiate a different rate if you need to – and<br />

is usually held in a trust account by the real estate<br />

agent. The real estate agent takes their commission<br />

fee out of this amount when the agreement<br />

becomes unconditional and the remaining balance<br />

goes to the seller.<br />

When you arrange a home loan with a bank, you<br />

must have a certain amount of funds to use as a deposit<br />

– your bank deposit. This deposit will more<br />

13<br />

than likely be different from the<br />

amount your sale and purchase<br />

agreement states that you must<br />

pay the seller. For example, your<br />

bank may need you to have 20<br />

per cent of the purchase price<br />

available as a bank deposit in<br />

order to secure your mortgage,<br />

even if you only have to pay the<br />

seller a 10 per cent deposit.<br />

“When drawing up a sale and<br />

purchase agreement, you can<br />

include conditions of the sale,<br />

such as a title search, valuation,<br />

LIM report, obtaining finance, obtaining insurance<br />

and builder’s inspection,” Lampen-Smith says.<br />

“Including conditions can really help – you can<br />

even negotiate your sale and purchase deposit.”<br />

“If you find that you need extra time to complete<br />

any conditions of the purchase, you must speak to<br />

your lawyer or conveyancer immediately. They will<br />

negotiate with the seller through their real estate<br />

agent or lawyer or conveyancer,” Lampen-Smith<br />

says.<br />

“Any changes to the conditions will need to be<br />

added to the sale and purchase agreement and<br />

signed off by you and the seller. If your conditions<br />

are not able to be met, eg, the building fails<br />

the property inspection, then you may be able to<br />

cancel the agreement and then your deposit will be<br />

refunded to you.”<br />

“It’s very important that you speak to a lawyer<br />

before finalising your offer conditions so that they<br />

adequately protect you if something that you find<br />

out about the property during the conditional<br />

period is not to your satisfaction,” Lampen-Smith<br />

says.<br />

“There is potential that defaulting on a sale,<br />

because of finances, could affect future borrowing.<br />

Talk this through with your lawyer and it would<br />

also be wise to seek advice from a qualified financial<br />

adviser. A financial adviser may also be able to<br />

talk you through the pros and cons of income protection<br />

insurance for situations such as sickness,<br />

disability, unemployment and death.”<br />

“In life, there are so many things we cannot be<br />

sure of, but it’s always worth doing your homework<br />

and seeking solid professional advice when<br />

purchasing a home.”<br />

A natural<br />

partnership<br />

Attracted by increasing facilities and services,<br />

people are choosing Rolleston as a place to retire.<br />

The effect is a change in the town’s<br />

demographics and urban landscape as<br />

retirement villages are constructed.<br />

Located in the eastern frame of<br />

Rolleston, Woodcroft Estate has been<br />

an early player in bringing retirement<br />

complexes to the town. On completion, it<br />

will comprise 78, two or three bedroom<br />

units (62 duplexes and 16 standalone<br />

villas).<br />

The beauty of Woodcroft Estate is the<br />

independence and flexibility it offers<br />

residents who will ultimately own and<br />

manage their village.<br />

Woodcroft Estate offers two and three<br />

bedroom duplex units and villas, which<br />

are larger and more spacious than is<br />

typical in many retirement villages. Also of<br />

particular appeal is the idea of a hassle and<br />

maintenance free lifestyle, in a safe and<br />

supportive community.<br />

“Woodcroft Estate has recently gained<br />

momentum with around a third of the<br />

planned duplex and standalone villas<br />

already sold,” advises Manor Group<br />

representative, Corinne Blackie.<br />

The construction of Woodcroft Estate<br />

has been a natural partnership between<br />

the Manor Group as owners, and<br />

Generation Homes Christchurch who<br />

are recognised builders in Rolleston, and<br />

the company behind the Devon Green<br />

development.<br />

“The Manor Group is a great company<br />

offering a quality product,” says Evan<br />

Beker, Joint Venture Partner of Generation<br />

Homes Christchurch.<br />

“They’re well organised, ethically based<br />

and very committed to this project, going<br />

out of their way to assist clients.”<br />

Corinne replies that as clients are buying<br />

a home they will live in for the rest of their<br />

lives, she likes to accommodate their needs<br />

wherever able to do so.<br />

“Generation Homes have been<br />

wonderful and really easy to work with. If<br />

you need something done, they come and<br />

sort it straight away,” advises Corinne.<br />

Plans for a pavilion complex at<br />

Woodcroft Estate are currently underway<br />

with Generation Homes due to start<br />

construction in early 2020. There will be<br />

lounge, kitchen and bathroom facilities,<br />

a barbecue area and a bowling green<br />

for residents and their guests to enjoy.<br />

Currently, residents come together for<br />

monthly morning teas, with prospective<br />

residents welcome to attend. Future plans<br />

are for a resident manager, a role Corinne<br />

currently fills.<br />

Woodcroft Estate offers a choice of<br />

five different unit designs. Prices begin<br />

at $420,000 for a standard two bedroom<br />

116sqm duplex with a single garage.<br />

The largest standalone villa is 173sqm<br />

and has a starting price of $560,000. The<br />

actual cost of a unit or villa will however,<br />

depend on its individual specifications and<br />

features. While ownership is on a Licence<br />

to Occupy basis, the full capital value<br />

passes to the owner when a unit is sold.<br />

This means owners benefit from capital<br />

gains on their units or villas.<br />

The Woodcroft Estate show<br />

home is open 10am until<br />

2pm from Monday to Friday,<br />

at 34 Kendon Avenue. All<br />

viewing is by appointment.<br />
