quarry

plan hits

stumbling

block

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FULTON HOGAN’S plan to

open a controversial quarry near

Weedons has hit a major road block.

But the company is confident it

can address the concerns raised

by experts on its proposed 170ha

Roydon Quarry.

The district council and

Environment Canterbury are

recommending the application to

open the quarry is declined unless

changes are made.

Independently prepared Section

42A reports for the two authorities

were released on Monday ahead of

the quarry hearing due to start in

November.

Traffic issues, hours of operation

and unclear plans on how Fulton

Hogan will reduce major air

pollutant PM10 are key reasons

behind the recommendation for

the application to be declined.

But Fulton Hogan South Island

general manager Craig Stewart

said he is confident any technical

concerns raised about traffic,

hours of operation and dust can be

addressed to the satisfaction of the

community and decision-makers.

SELWYN TIMES

THERE IS some good news – and maybe

not so good news – for people trying

to stop Fulton Hogan’s planned quarry

between Weedons and Templeton (page 1).

Environment Canterbury and the district

council are recommending the application

to open the quarry is declined unless changes are made.

They relate to the number of truck movements and air quality.

Fulton and Hogan is confident it can do that.

So if that happens it might take the sting out of objections

ECan and the district council have over the application to build

the quarry.

That is the bad news for residents. They don’t want a quarry

on their doorsetp at all, quite reasonable considering what a

quarry will potentially do to their quality of life and property

values.

Keeping stock off the

roads a focus of bylaw changes

• By Devon Bolger

RULES AROUND stock

droving may be tightened in a

bid to keep animals off roads.

The stock droving bylaw was

first implemented in 2008 and

was reviewed this year. The

review follows a series of crashes

involving cattle over the past

two years.

Last year former Selwyn

mayor Bill Woods and his

two passengers were lucky to

escape serious

injury after his

travelling at

about 100km/h,

collided with a

cow. A week later,

Pat

McEvedy

a 27-year-old

motorist suffered

serious injuries

when she collided

with a cow in Burnham.

The review has led to

proposed amendments to the

bylaw which are considered

of ‘significant interest’ to the

community. They include:

• Stock can only graze on the

verge of a road that has a speed

limit of 60km/h or less.

• A stock underpass must

“I think they need to be

The amended bylaw is due to

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think residents should get a say on Fulton

Hogan’s proposed changes to its Roydon Quarry plan? Email your

views to georgia.oconnor@starmedia.kiwi

Traffic concerns highlighted

•From page 1

In a new development on top

of the release of the reports,

residents are unhappy some

submitters will not have a say on

the changes made last month by

Fulton Hogan to its original application.

The changes include amending

its proposal from 1500 heavy vehicle

movements a day to a daily

limit of 800 heavy vehicles.

ECan and the district council

will only accept submissions on

whether the changes to the quarry

application are significant enough

that it should

be treated as a

completely new

process.

All submissions

are

required to be

authored by

legal counsel

and are due on

Simon Moore

September 17.

Only those who chose to speak at

the hearing before the changes were

made will have a chance to do so.

Quarry opponent Simon Moore

said it was “unfair” submitters

who will not speak at the hearing

will not have an opportunity to

have a say on the changes.

But he said if ECan and the

district council are recommending

the application be

declined, it is a good outcome.

recommended consent for Fulton Hogan’s planned quarry in

Templeton be declined.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

His views were backed by

Templeton Residents’ Association

treasurer Jolene Eagar, who said

the biggest thing to come out of

the report was the traffic concerns

highlighted.

As part of the Section 42A

report, the district council’s

recommendations were made

by Andrew Henderson from

independent engineering consultant

Beca, while Incite resource

management consultant Hannah

Goslin was contracted by ECan.

Mr Henderson said the application

needs to have appropriate

measures to avoid adverse effects

arising from trucks queuing

between the main trunk railway

crossing and Main South Rd.

This is a result of Fulton Hogan

proposing to provide a vehicle access

point from Jones Rd into the

quarry, which is adjacent to Main

South Rd.

Mr Henderson’s other key

concern is all activities proposed

to occur between 8pm and 6am at

the quarry need to be removed.

Incite resource management

consultant Hannah Goslin said

she has not been provided with

enough information to show

Fulton Hogan can reliably reduce

the discharge of PM10 (a major air

pollutant).

“At this time, I do not consider

the applicant is able to comply

with Regulation 17(1) of the National

Standards for Air Quality,”

she said.

Mr Stewart said it is going over

the detail of expert opinions and

will be addressing this in their

evidence, ongoing conversations

and at the hearing.

Recreational area for Springfield

• By Devon Bolger

A PROJECT to turn a pit in

Springfield into recreation

space is under way.

The Springfield Township

committee plans to create an

area at the corner of Tramway

Rd and Tawera Lane to bring

the community together.

The final concept plans for

the project were approved by

the committee at a meeting last

week.

They include a bike trail, a

walking track and a fitness station

as well as family-friendly

barbecue areas.

The plans also include native

plantings and a nature play area

for children.

Committee chairman Graeme

Dawson said he hopes the

project unites the community

and brings everyone together.

“We’ve spent the last 12

months working on these plans

SELWYN TIMES

and we are pretty excited to see

them finalised,” he said.

District council Reserves

operations manager Jonathan

Crawford said council staff supported

the committee in putting

together the proposal for

the project and have provided

$10,220 for it.

Mr Dawson said they have

cleared the pit and are now

ready to start on the next stage

of the project.

“That will involve tidying up

and then we can start planting

and planning the tracks which

we want the community to be

involved in.”

Community planting days

will be held regularly and are

open for all to join in and get

involved, Mr Dawson said.

Tai Tapu piper bags

titles at big meeting in Scotland

• By Claire Booker

VICTORY ON the world stage

is no longer a pipe dream for

Campbell Wilson.

The 16-year-old Tai Tapu

bagpiper won the under-18

piobaireachd and under-18

march, strathspey and reel

events at the Northern Meeting

at Inverness, Scotland.

In the piping world, the annual

meeting is the most prestigious

competition for solo pipers.

Since Campbell began piping

when he was nine, he has

achieved a long list of highlights

in his career.

He made history at the

Hastings Highland Games

in April when he became the

youngest ever winner of the

New Zealand gold medal for

piobaireachd.

Campbell was named New

Zealand young piper of the year

in 2018, and is the youngest

ever winner of the silver chanter

march, strathspey and reel event.

Now he can add the two

wins at Inverness to his already

impressive resumé.

Campbell said the win

still feels surreal, and being

surrounded by like-minded

people was amazing.

“I never thought I’d do so well,

I was just there to perform to my

potential,” he said.

Competitors from Scotland,

England, the United States,

Canada and New Zealand took

Meeting in

Scotland.

part in the annual competition.

Campbell’s father Greg Wilson

is one of the top pipers in the

world – and doubles as his

son’s tutor. Mr Wilson’s success

includes winning 14 gold clasp

piobaireachd competitions – an

event which pipers can only

compete in if they have won the

New Zealand gold medal for

piobaireachd.

“My dad is very proud of my

success. He has put in so much

time and effort for me to be of a

reasonable standard to compete

in Scotland, and it definitely paid

off. I am very appreciative of

him, I couldn’t succeed without

him,” Campbell said.

He practices at least six times

a week for 90min each session,

and also has a lesson with his

father every Sunday.

“There isn’t a secret to my

success, only that I put the work

in and it pays off,” he said.

Campbell will face off against

his father at the end of next

month in the annual Labour

weekend competitions, and he is

looking forward to the challenge.

But he said his goals for the

future are not based around

results, as they aren’t always

achievable – he is more focused

on playing well.

“It’s definitely achievable to

have a good performance or even

a phenomenal performance. And

from there, results may come,

they’re just a bonus,” he said.

Transform

your garden

with a natural timber sauna

For those seeking the ultimate in garden lifestyle,

the answer can be found at Canterbury Saunas, says

business owner Mark Smith. As he explains, a Finnish

barrel sauna turns a garden into a sanctuary of

relaxation, refreshment and rejuvenation.

The barrels come from Finland and

are made by a passionate family

company, who live, breathe and

sleep sauna, Mark says. They are

handcrafted from Thermowood, a

very slow-growing Nordic Spruce

that has been heat-treated at 205

degrees celcius for two days. The

timber is free of resin, durable, and

not prone to warping, so is perfect

for sauna. Thermowood is also 25 per

cent more thermally efficient compared to

cedar.

“Similar-looking saunas are available elsewhere.

However, at Canterbury Saunas we use 45mm-thick

timber to ensure longevity and we offer many upgrade

options, such as windows and different lengths and

widths.

”People were taken aback at the recent Canterbury

Home Show, at the quality of the ball-and-socket

joinery and how many growth rings were on the timber

walls – people kept coming up and stroking them,”

Mark says.

Unrivalled in size and options for customisation,

Canterbury Saunas also exclusively offers

the Huum heater range, from 4.5kw to

18kw. The standard model holds 55kg

of stones, which produces fabulous

steam, and with an upgrade option

the heater can be controlled

remotely with a smart phone.

For a more rustic feel, clients can

also upgrade to a traditional woodburning

heater, perfect for people in

remote locations.

Mark says sauna compares well to a

conventional spa pool, without the need to

run the heater constantly. He has used his St Albans

sauna several times a week for over a year and has

found that the electricity costs are about $2 a session.

Virtually maintenance free, there are no slippery steps,

filters to be changed or harsh chemicals to add to the

sauna – a quick sweep out and wipe down every few

weeks is sufficient. Oiling the outside of the timber

once a year is also recommended.

Published studies from the University of Bristol, which

used very large study groups over 20 years, have

come back with some interesting findings, Mark says.

Regular use of Finnish-style saunas can reduce blood

pressure and the chance of stroke. It also benefits

skin condition and eases breathing problems. Soft

tissue aches and pains are also eased in the heat of

sauna. Finally, the barrel shape and quiet environment

combine to create a feeling of peace and sanctuary

away from the hectic pace of life.

Yaldhurst. Website www.canterburysaunas.co.nz

Six wayS SaunaS

beat spa pools

Ease aches and pains away with a Scandinavian

designed and crafted barrel sauna, the hot

new option with some great advantages.

1. Saunas only use power when in use.

2. Saunas aren’t noisy.

3. Easier to keep clean with no need for chemicals.

4. Enjoyable in any weather, cocooned from

the elements.

5. Safer – no slippery steps, level floor, and easy to get

in and out of.

6. Lower maintenance because there’s only one

working part, the heater.

Quake survivor hit by thieves

• By Devon Bolger

CHEEKY THIEVES are stealing

plants from a West Melton

couple’s roadside stall.

More than $200 of plants

home-grown by Brian and Helen

Coker have been stolen from

their Stoneycrop stall on Halkett

Rd.

“We are very disappointed.

I like to think it’s a part of our

Kiwi culture that we have these

roadside stalls and the majority

of people are honest but some

just ruin it for everyone,” Mr

Coker said.

It’s the fourth time the stall

has been targetted this year, the

Coker’s have previously had their

honesty box taken on several

occasions.

Mr Coker lost both his legs

in the Christchurch earthquake

on Feburary 22, 2011. He

was pinned under concrete

in the collapsed Pyne Gould

Corporation building.

Later Mr and Mrs Coker

began a project to create a dream

garden at their home.

Mrs Coker took on the majority

of the work and they won

Garden of the Year in 2015.

The plants from the stall come

directly from that garden and

“When you’ve spent so much

time growing and nurturing

them and to have somebody just

take them, it really isn’t a great

feeling,” he said.

After all of the thefts, the couple

have begun questioning if it’s

worth carrying on.

“We still want to keep going

but to lose this amount of plants

in one go is very disheartening

and it does make you think.

“Its disappointing people

aren’t honest,” Mr Coker

said.

The couple said they will look

into installing security cameras

to ensure it doesn’t happen again

The thieves took two trays

totalling around 40 plants and

other specific plants of more

value.

“They were quite selective with

Probus club

looks for

members

THE ROLLESTON Central

Probus Club is up-and-running

and looking for members.

Club member Lisa Paget said

the group caters for retired and

semi-retired people in the community.

“Our new Probus club is well

on its way, but we still would love

to see more new members and

are welcoming everyone to come

along to our next meeting,” she

said.

At the group’s last meeting they

had a great turn out and special

guests, Ms Paget said.

“We had a fantastic, humorous

and very interesting speaker

Richard Blakeborough who told

us about his journey after suffering

from a heart attack.”

The club also has regular outings,

the first was to the Silver

Dollar for lunch which was much

enjoyed by all, she said.

Meetings of the Rolleston

Central Probus Club are held

on the third Tuesday of every

month.

The next will be on September

17 at the Rolleston Community

Centre.

Group gets $2500 to trap predators

• By Devon Bolger

KIRWEE RESIDENTS are

being given the chance to get on

top of pest numbers in the area.

Predator Free Kirwee,

formally Kirwee Trappers, has

received $2500 from the district

council to buy rat traps.

The group is beginning with

rats as they

are the most

common pest

and are the

easiest traps

to use.

A particularly

bad

Nicci Dillon

mast season

has seen pest

numbers rise across the country.

“This year has seen the biggest

mast season for many years and

the abundant seed is fuelling

rodent breeding through the

winter,” a Department of Conservation

spokesperson said.

A mast occurs when trees and

plants produce high amounts

of seed and fruits that attract

predators.

Group member Nicci Dillon

said they’re excited the plan is

going ahead.

“The head of the group, Kelvin

Sewell, and I have been working

hard to secure funding for the

traps and are delighted that the

‘I went home and thought that’s bloody it, we’re gonna get

rid of some of these critters.’ – Nicci Dillon

council has come on board to

supply them,” she said.

The vision is to get the community

involved in backyard

trapping to eradicate pests in

Kirwee.

‘I have a lifestyle block near

the Waimak and a while back I

had a ferret run across my lawn

with a rabbit in its mouth and

then a week later I was walking

in a reserve and a stoat ran out

in front of me.

“I went home and thought

that’s bloody it, we’re gonna get

rid of some of these critters.”

CAUGHT: A rat and a weasel

trapped by Predator Free

Kirwee as part of a bid to

manage pest numbers in the

area.

District council biodiversity

co-ordinator Andrew Spanton

said protecting native wildlife is

incredibly important.

“Given that there are many

native restoration and enhancement

planting projects going

on – with the notion of creating

habitat for native birds – then we

need associated and joined up

actions to rid the sites of predators,”

he said.

The group will now make and

source the traps before reaching

out to residents.

“We’re gonna start in the

community itself, concentrating

on getting rap traps into every

house,” Ms Dillon said.

•Predator Free Kirwee will

have a tent at the Courtenay

A&P show on November

23 to give information to

the community about the

project and how to trap

Storage King

recognised for

fundraising

A ROLLESTON business

has been recognised for its

contribution to the community.

Storage King won the

community engagement award

at the Self Storage Industries of

Australasia awards last week.

The business has been actively

involved in fundraising for

organisations.

It also sponsors Rolleston

rugby, the Rolleston Warriors,

Rolleston softball, Rolleston

netball, the Waikirikiri Hockey

Club, and Selwyn United’s first

kicks programme.

Manager Chris O’Brien said it

couldn’t have done it without the

Selwyn community’s help.

Selwyn has a highly-engaged

community that loves to be

part of initiatives, not-for-profit

organisations and supporting

local. We identified this quickly

and were able to work alongside

community individuals and

groups to help achieve the kind of

engagement normally seen only

after years of work,” he said.

“We want to say thanks for

their amazing contribution

towards receiving such an award

and we very much look forward

to serving the communities of

Selwyn for many more years to

come.”

Help schools play together

LEMONWOOD Grove and

Waitaha schools need the

community’s help to build a

shared playground so the pupils

to play together.

The two schools share a site at

Rolleston.

Lemonwood Grove opened

in 2017 and Waitaha School,

a special education facility,

opened a year after with 50-60

students aged from five to

21-years-old.

Waitaha School principal

Maureen Allan said the

playground will allow the pupils

to build relationships with each

other.

“We decided to collaborate on

this project because we want a

shared space for the learners to

play alongside one another,” she

said.

The playground is expected to

cost about $70,000 with the bulk

of the money going towards

special requirements like safety

matting and fencing.

Lemonwood Grove principal

Sean Bailey said he is excited

about the project and the

opportunities it will provide.

In a bid to raise the money, the

schools have been fundraising,

and the Lemonwood Grove

LINK committee (PTA) will run

a quiz night with the Waitaha

School Board.

SHARE: Pupils at Lemonwood Grove and Waitaha schools may soon be sharing a new

playground, but need help to get the planned facility (below) up and running.

Fundraising co-ordinator

Cherie King said she has

enjoyed collaborating on the

project and bringing the two

school communities together.

The quiz night will be held on

SELWYN TIMES

September 21 and will include

raffles and auctions.

“The aim of the night is to

create an opportunity to bring

while raising money for our

Rolleston teen on the road

to Youth Olympics gold rush

• By Jacob Page

ROLLESTON College

cyclist Nick Rush has lofty

goals and he knows hard

work is the best way to

achieve them.

Even on a rainy Sunday,

he is on his bike for a

training ride up Summit

Rd.

The 14-year-old, who has

competed at both road and

mountain bike nationals

in the past 12 months,

wants to make the Youth

Olympics on the road in

2022.

“Most of my mountain

biking helps my hill work

and then on the road I

mostly ride on the flat.”

Nick dominated the

Canterbury secondary

schools cycling Southern

Tour in Blenheim last

week.

Not only did he win

the overall under-15

yellow jersey category, he

also won the time trial,

hill climb, king of the

mountain and sprint titles.

“I was expecting to do

well but I wasn’t expecting

to win everything. The hill

climb win was really good,

because I’m quite solid and

there are others with better

body types to go quick up

inclines.

“A result like that always

gives me confidence.”

Last year he finished

on the road and half on a

“There are some good

20min climbs up the

Walking Festival puts

spring in step

Foster Park in bloom

Thousands of daffodils are bringing a bright splash of colour to

Foster Park.

The wildflower daffodil garden of 20,000 daffodils planted by

volunteers and Council staff at the park is blooming. People are

encouraged to enjoy the flowers while they last, but please don’t

pick them.

Spring is here and with it the opportunity to get out and explore more of the beautiful countryside

around the district.

The annual Breeze Walking Festival is offering guided walks to discover and enjoy of some of

Selwyn’s beautiful walk trails.

Four great walks throughout the district will be part of the festival from at the start of October.

From a tramp to enjoy 360 degree mountain views, to a quick sneak through one of the only

places in New Zealand where you can see the muted swan, or an introduction to the history of

Māori pathways through the land and spectacular flora and fauna at Kura Tawhiti/Castle Hill,

there’s something for all ages and interests.

The four walks are:

· Harts Creek Sneak: Tuesday 1 October

· Rakaia Gorge Experience: Thursday 3 October (fully booked)

· Kura Tawhiti/Castle Hill Treasure Walk: Tuesday 8 October

· Hogs Back Hike: Thursday 10 October (fully booked)

To register for these walks go to walkingfestival.co.nz. All walks are free.

Motorcycle Awareness Month

September is Motorcycle Awareness Month and people are being reminded to look twice for motorcycles.

September marks the start of the riding season for many motorcyclists in New Zealand. It is the month

when over half of all motorcyclists get their bikes out of the garage, get back on the road and look

forward to the long summer of riding. It’s an important time for all motorists to know that they’ll see

more motorcycles on the road. The Council is supporting the national campaign, reminding people to

look twice, especially at intersections and before changing lanes, and to check blind spots.

Make it click!

Not only is it the law to wear a

seatbelt, it’s a really good idea.

Find out about Council

election contenders

With just over a week to go until voting opens in the 2019 local

elections, it’s time to start getting to know the candidates.

Voting packs will be delivered to all enrolled voters from 20

September. The election is held by postal vote, and voting papers

must be received by the Council before 12 midday on Election Day,

Saturday 12 October 2019.

Your voting pack will include a booklet with profile statements from

all candidates – but you can find out who the candidates are and

view their profile statements now, on the Council’s elections web

page at selwyn.govt.nz/elections.

Altogether, 25 nominations were received for the 17 vacancies in the

upcoming Council elections.

Elections will be required in all Council Wards, but will not be

required for the Malvern Community Board (Tawera and Hawkins

subdivisions), where the number of nominations received matched

the number of vacancies.

Deputy electoral officer Stephen Hill says it’s pleasing to see

the number of people putting their hands up to be involved in

local democracy.

“It’s especially encouraging to see several first-time candidates who

are standing to represent their local wards,” he says. “Now it’s up

to the people of Selwyn to have their say. We hope people take the

time to find out about their local candidates, and return their voting

papers in plenty of time.”

Selwyn District Council is participating in Local Government New

Zealand’s Vote 2019 campaign, which aims to lift nationwide voter

turnout in local elections and increase people’s engagement with

their local council.

Meet the candidate evenings

Public ‘Meet the Candidate’ meetings are expected to be held in a

number of locations across the district during the election period.

These meetings are not organised by the Council. They are generally

organised by local community groups. Anyone organising public

meetings, which are open to all candidates, can send the event

details to electoral.officer@selwyn.govt.nz and we will endeavour to

list these in Council Call and on our website.

New garden expo offers opportunities

Green-fingered Selwyn residents are being offered the opportunity to join a giant expo showcasing the

best of gardening in the district.

West Melton Garden Club will be running the Selwyn Garden Expo at the West Melton Community

Centre on Sunday, 1 December.

The club is seeking expressions of interest from those who may be interested in having a stall at the event.

It is the first time the club has run the expo. Club president Anne Finch says the idea came about after

securing a visit from broadcaster, author and former New Zealand Garden editor Lynda Hallinan.

“We had Lynda coming and thought it was a chance to give others

the opportunity to hear her too. We’re aiming to showcase the many

different garden related activities and businesses in Selwyn and

nearby areas and promote gardening.”

The expo has already attracted interest from a wide range of groups

in addition to the usual gardening businesses, she says.

“Anything we can relate to gardening we’ve got coming. We have

many producers in the area like walnut growers, saffron, truffles,

homemade Italian cheeses. We have at least one winery, an

overseas garden tour organiser, garden sculptures, pots and plant

markers, landscapers, and plants galore, to name a few. We’re quite

open to considering anyone who is interested.”

The expo will also feature music, and food and drink stalls, along

with three or four demonstrations or talks in addition to the

presentation by Lynda Hallinan and the club is open to people who

are interested in making a presentation, Mrs Finch says.

Anyone interested in taking part in the expo can email

selwyngardenexpo@gmail.com or call Anne Finch on 027 436 5156.

Backyard Critters

Earthworms matter

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

entomology (insects and other invertebrates).

Each week he introduces a new species found in

his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise

public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of

living things around us. Check out the full list of

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

backyard-biodiversity-bugs-in-lincoln

CHARLES DARWIN’S work on

earthworms is not as well known

as his significant publications on

the origin of species by means of

natural selection.

However, he did recognise the

importance of earthworms in the

role of breaking down organic

matter and drainage of soils.

Earthworms in New Zealand

also provide a food source for

many birds, including our iconic

kiwi, and also large carnivorous

snails plus many species of

flatworms.

New Zealand has 23 exotic

and more than 200 endemic

earthworm species. Many of our

endemic species would likely

have become extinct with land

and wetland clearance. Exotic

earthworms introduced from

Europe have largely replaced

native species on farmland

and in some cases have been

intentionally released to increase

production. New Zealand’s

largest documented earthworm

is 1.3m and is relatively short

compared to the 5m giant

found in Australia. One of New

Zealand’s more common exotic

species in disturbed habitats is

Lumbricus terrestris (above),

sometimes called the night

crawler. This reddish earthworm

typically reaches 20-25cm in

length. Adults are identified by

the reproductive organ called

the clitellum, a lighter-coloured

thickening on their body nearer

to the head end. The location of

the clitellum along the body can

be used to distinguish between

endemic and exotic earthworms.

Earthworms are hermaphrodites

and use their clitellum in

reproduction. Contrary to

common belief, earthworms cut in

half do not grow into two worms.

Only sections containing the head

and clitellum can survive; the rear

end will not survive.

Bidding farewell to Italy

OUR FINAL days here in Italy

have arrived in what seems like

a flash.

Now we’re faced yet again with

saying goodbye to friends and

relatives, with hopeful boasts of

returning again in three years.

There’s also the upcoming long

flights with Vittoria.

We’ve wisely included a fourday

stopover in Brisbane to catch

up with people and re-adjust our

body clocks to the Antipodean

cycle.

To be honest, due to the magic

of international time zones,

newspaper deadlines and my

inability to write these while

chasing my daughter around a

metal tube with wings 30,000ft

above the ground – we’re likely

already in Australia as you read

this.

We’ve managed to fit quite a

bit into our last week, including

taking Vittoria on her first train

rides.

Over three days we forged a

rough triangle around northwest

Italy to visit some of Laura’s

relatives who live in Turin and

Pisa (obligatory Leaning Tower

photo time).

The trip was particularly

special as it was the first time

said relatives had met Laura, let

alone Vittoria.

Vittoria was great with them,

OPEN SPACE: Vittoria at

Piazza San Marco in Venice.

and like all her family here, she

warmed to them quickly and

was soon rushing to them for

cuddles after only knowing them

for a matter of hours.

Fortunately my wee darling

even behaved herself on the up

to four-hour train journeys,

giving us the confidence needed

to take her to Venice on Friday.

I was fully against letting her

out of her pram there as the

headline “Kiwi toddler rescued

from Venetian canal” practically

writes itself. It also goes along

VITTORIA

& Matt

SELWYN TIMES

with the phrase “father’s

decisions questioned”.

Lucky for me, Vittoria seemed

to agree, and was content to

watch her parents sweat to death

under the baking sun while we

carried her pram over the city’s

billion or so canal bridges on the

two-hour expedition to Piazza

San Marco.

She was so relaxed that she fell

asleep briefly as we arrived in the

famous square.

However, against my better

judgement, we let her out there

(after she woke up) so she could

take a run about the place I

asked her mother to marry me.

In another fit of good luck,

grapes worked as a bribe to get

her back in for the return trek

and the only downside of the

adventure was a scrapped knee.

I hope such luck holds out for

the return home.

Green mango herb salad

½ telegraph cucumber or one

lebanese cucumber, unpeeled,

shaved into ribbons

1 green mango, peeled, shaved

into ribbons

1 small bunch coriander leaves

1 small bunch Thai basil leaves

2 wing beans, finely sliced

Squeeze of lemon juice

Pinch of sugar

Olive oil

Directions

Season the fish with salt and

pepper and a drizzle of oil.

Place the soaked dried chillies

and garlic in a food processor

and blend until a fine paste.

Heat two tablespoons of oil in

a small saucepan over medium

heat, add the shrimp paste and

mash with a wooden spatula.

Cook for 1min until the shrimp

paste becomes fragrant and

starts to toast.

Add the chilli garlic paste

and continue to cook, stirring

frequently, until fragrant.

Add the gula melaka and cook

until dark, glossy and sticky.

Slowly pour in the tamarind

puree. Cook until slightly

thickened, then stir in the lemon

juice and sprinkle on the kaffir

lime leaves. Remove from heat

and set aside.

Heat a non-stick fry pan over

high heat. Place the fish pieces

skin side down evenly around

the pan and cook until crisp and

golden.

To ensure that the skin is

evenly crispy, you may need to

gently press with a spatula to

keep the skin flat on the pan.

Turn over, and cook the other

side until three-quarter cooked.

Pour over the tamarind chilli

sauce and toss very gently to just

coat. Be careful not to break up

the fish pieces.

Combine the salad ingredients,

and dress with lemon juice,

sugar and olive oil just before

serving.

Transfer the fish to a serving

plate along with all the sauce

and top with the green mango,

cucumber and herb salad.

Sprinkle with crispy shallots and

serve immediately.

Note: Adjust the quantity

of the large, red dried chillies

according to your taste. Also,

leave the seeds in if you like

the dish extra spicy, otherwise,

deseed them.

In any case, soak the chillies in

hot water until softened before

using them.

dISCOVER

PhysioSteps is rebranding

PhysioSteps, located in West

Melton is in for a rebrand and new

ownership. Kayla Marshall, who

opened PhysioSteps in May 2017

with Caitlin and Shaun Clark, has

just bought the business outright.

“Caitlin and Shaun were ready

for their next step in life and I love

this business, our customers and

our location, so, it was the next

logical step for me,” Kayla says

with a big smile. “I’m going to put

a little of myself into the business

and a rebrand was the first step, so

effective immediately we will be

known as Physio4u.”

They have the same dedicated

team who are fabulous at what they

do and the support they give

their clients.

Next time you’re in, you will

see the new name on the front

door as well as a new uniform

with the new logo.

“We will still have our same

modern approach to physio,

where we treat each client as a

whole person, rather than just

applying a ‘band aid’ to the

sore area” Kayla says, “We like

to assess the injury and offer

a clear diagnosis with a full

explanation so you know what

is happening and what we suggest.

We also then give you advice on how

to prevent this happening again.”

What they offer:

• Physiotherapy

• Clinical Pilates

• Deep Tissue Massage

• Running Assessments

• Sports Physiotherapy

• ACC accredited

Need a physio? A massage?

A physical assessment? Time to call

Physio4u in West Melton.

Tips for checking a diesel vehicle

If taking your vehicle in for its regular

service keeps getting shelved or it only

gets a quick look over, you might be

have an expensive repair bill in the

future. The same situation could occur,

if you purchase a diesel vehicle without

thoroughly checking it over.

Phil Thompson, co-owner of Diesel Fix

in Rolleston has provided a list of things

you can do yourself before purchasing a

diesel vehicle. Following these tips will

also help you keep an eye on your vehicle’s

condition over time.

1. Examine the exhaust to see if there is

any excessive build-up of soot. This usually

means there is a problem with the engine

combustion or in the exhaust itself.

2. Check the colour of the oil on the

dipstick. If a white or milky substance, it is

an indication of internal engine problems

Modified pump and injectors.

so best to avoid the vehicle and look for a

better buy.

3. Look underneath for any signs of oil

leaks and around the engine compartment

for any hint of oil or coolant leaks. These

are more clues of an unhealthy engine.

4. A common problem with diesel

vehicles is they are notoriously bad starters

in chilly weather so try starting the vehicle

from a cold start. There are a number of

reasons for a long delay in starting and it

is wise to get these diagnosed before they

turn into more serious and expensive

issues.

5. The coolant inside the radiator should

be clean and have little ‘gunk’ in it. Where

the coolant is contaminated, the vehicle

has issues.

6. While the car is running, take a

look at the exhaust fumes. A light black

colour is good but if it is too thick or is of

a white colour, there is a problem within

the engine. It may be that the fuel/air

ratio is incorrect due to faulty injectors,

low compressions, incorrect timing, or

incomplete combustion.

7. Take the vehicle out for a test drive to

see how it handles, noting any excessive

smoke or undue engine noise. Feel for any

vibrations; how the steering feels; whether

there is any hesitation in the power; and

how the engine performs.

8. Make sure there are no check-lights

remaining on, on the dashboard.

If you have any questions about your

own diesel vehicle or one you are looking

to buy, Phil who is a qualified Automotive

and Diesel Fuel Injection Engineer is

happy to advise you.

If you already own a diesel vehicle,

regular servicing will go a long way to

keeping it on the road so call 0274 368

vehicle in for a full service.

Mercedes-Benz puts boot into A-Class

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

I HAVE A certain amount of

affection for the Mercedes-Benz

A Class. When that model first

appeared in 1998 it was the first

car from that company I had a

chance to evaluate.

It also stood out for controversy,

Scandinavian drivers were

very sceptical of the A-Class, it

was claimed it didn’t pass the local

elk test – an evasive manoeuvre

procedure. However, as you

would expect from Mercedes-

Benz, evolving safety systems

have long put that rationale to the

bin.

The A-Class has been a solid

seller in the small hatchback

market, and I’ve come to really

like the entry-level vehicle into

this luxury car brand. It must also

be said that I’m even more excited

about the range for it now includes

a sedan and, what’s more,

it’s a beauty in terms of practicality

and driveability.

Sure, the basic fundamentals of

the A-Class haven’t been interfered

with, however, it is a little

longer at 4549mm compared for

4419mm for the hatchback, but

that is marginal, and for the extra

versatility I’d certainly throw my

hat in the ring for one.

It also looks special, I’ve made

MERCEDES-BENZ A200: Available in hatchback or sedan.

no secret of my desire for the

traditional, and the A-Class sedan

looks sporty and almost sits apart

from the hatchback it is based on.

The fundamental mechanicals

are also still the same, the engine

sits transversely under the bonnet

and drive is sent to the front

wheels.

The A-Class sedan lands here

with two turbocharged engine

options – A180 and A200. Effectively,

it’s the same four-cylinder

engine other than varying power

outputs; the A180 gets 100kW

and 200Nm, the A200 gets higher

turbo boost, lifting the ratings to

120kW and 250Nm.

Interestingly, the engine is just

1.3-litre, but if you are thinking

it’s a little underwhelming then

you had better think again.

I’ve recently evaluated the B180

which shares the 100kW engine

and it punches well above its

weight in terms of performance.

Forcing an extra 20kW and

50Nm through the system, the

A200 feels feisty and lively, the

engine is one of the sweetest you’d

ever get a chance to experience,

and it delights in meeting throttle

request.

Power is directed through a

seven-speed dual-clutch transmission

– effectively you treat it

as an automatic, there is no clutch

pedal. The gearbox is characterised

by quick shifts and ratios

which extract the power well and

provide the economy an A-Class

buyer would be searching for.

Mercedes-Benz claims a 5.7-litre

per 100km (49mpg) combined

cycle average for the 1332cc unit.

During my time in the evaluation

car the fuel usage readout

was constantly listing around

7l/100km (41mpg), while a

4.5l/100km (63mpg) figure is on

offer instantaneously at 100km/h,

the engine turning over at just

1800rpm.

On the subject of figures, the

A-Class sedan claims an 8.1sec

standstill to 100km/h time,

while it will also complete an

overtaking manoeuvre (80km/h-

120km/h) in 5sec.

All of these figures stack up to

provide wallet-friendly motoring

along with satisfactory performance.

What’s more, the A-Class

is a darn nice thing to drive, it is

quiet, comfortable, and provides

a feel that initiates confidence and

security within the car.

When presented with a few

tight corners, the A-Class steers

with precision. Grip in the first

instance is provided by Hungarian-moulded

Hankook tyres

which measure 225/45 x 18in,

even though their profile is a little

low ride comfort isn’t jeopardised,

the fully independent suspension

is all class, ruts and bumps

are willingly absorbed, while the

firming is such that body balance

stays controlled.

At just over 1.4m tall the A-

Class sedan doesn’t move much

over the suspension and because

there’s not a lot of weight in the

car (1350kg), gravitational force

doesn’t work against balance.

The A-Class sedan is what I

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

A200 sedan, $62,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4549mm; width, 1796mm;

height, 1440mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

1332cc, 120kW, 250Nm,

seven-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.1sec

• Fuel usage – 5.7l/100km

would call realistically priced.

At $62,900 in standard form it

comes complete with much of

the kit that I’d be comfortable

with. There’s a huge option list

and buyers will no doubt explore

that willingly. The evaluation car

had a few extras added in such as

driving assistant and seat comfort

packages, which added just over

$3k to the list price.

There’s no doubt that Mercedes-

Benz will have to market the

A-Class sedan well. Sedans aren’t

selling in large numbers any more

and those that are in the market

are all quality and compete on

largely equal terms. The A-Class

sits $14k above what you’d pay for

say a Mazda3 Limited, that being

the case, it needs to be good, and

I can safely say that it is.

If you also look at the bigger

picture and are thinking of

buying into one of the world’s

greatest luxury/sporty brands,

you can do that for a smidgeon

over $60k, that in itself has much

appeal.

We have officially hit Spring!

September can be an up and down

month weather-wise so don’t feel like you

need to rush out and get all your planting

done right away. Weather predictions

are showing some uncertainty with what

we may get over the next few weeks so

we suggest you look to raise seeds and

seedlings inside before planting them out

later this month and into October.

GrowinG from Seed

SPrUCinG UP YoUr GArdenS

This is a great activity to get you started and give

you a head start on the growing season without

risking your hard work being undone. Late frosts

and heavy rain can not only dampen your soil, but

also your spirits if you have planted out and then

lose your plants to bad weather.

Raising Mix and

Intellipots to

get started.

KeePinG YoUrSeLf SAfe

Your health is your biggest asset so you want to

protect it as well as you can. Gardening has many

health benefits, but safety measures should be

taken to protect yourselves from the sun as well

as Legionnaires Disease. The old saying slip, slop,

slap and wrap applies here, and we also suggest to

slip on some gloves and slap on a mask. For more

detailed information head to our website for our

safety guide.

Seed PoTAToeS

You can start sprouting seed potatoes now, ready

to plant out into garden plots, raised beds or pots

and containers.

We have a handy 6 pack or a larger 2kg bag of

Agria, Jersey Benne and Haylo in store and online.

Head to our website for a handy guide to growing

seed potatoes.

Organic Compost and Sheep Pellets can

be mixed through existing soils now to

give them a boost of nutrients.

If you are creating new garden beds,

Garden Soil Mix is excellent for this as

it contains 50% screened soil and 50%

Organic Compost. We recommend our

Veggie Garden Mix for creating raised

beds. This mix comes ready to go with a

controlled release fertiliser that will give

your plants the nutrients they need for

healthy growth.

Weeds love competing with your plants for space and

nutrients in the garden. You will need to keep on top of

removing them at this time, whilst your new plants are

establishing themselves. When removing them, make

sure you remove the roots as well, being careful not to

spread any seeds at the same time.

Gardening

Sunshine brings up the soil temperature

SPRING HAS finally arrived.

Temperatures will still be a bit

up and down this month, but

overall, they are on the rise. There

is plenty for gardeners to do,

especially preparing vegetable and

flower gardens for planting.

Vegetable garden

Harvest the remainder of your

winter veges and remove any that

have finished. Improve the soil by

adding plenty of new compost.

Where soils are not too wet, you

can now plant hardier vegetables

for summer harvesting, these

include; asparagus, beetroot,

cabbage, cauliflower, carrots,

onion, radish, silverbeet and

spinach.

Flowering annuals and

shrubs

Begin preparing for your summer

flower garden. It’s a little

early to plant traditional summer

annuals, so start with good

all-rounders; such as alyssum,

calendulas, cornflowers, lobelia,

pansies and violas.

You can raise your own summer

annuals seedlings by sowing

seeds into fresh seed raising mix

now. It’s important to use fresh

mix to ensure healthy, diseasefree

seedlings. Place pots or trays

in a warm north-facing spot

indoors or outdoors in a greenhouse,

and water regularly to

ensure even germination. New

seedlings should be ready for

planting around five-six weeks.

Give flowering winter shrubs

that have finished flowering, like

azaleas and camellias, a light ‘tidy

up’ prune where needed.

Bulbs

Mark the position of your late

winter/early spring flowering

bulbs if you want to grow annuals

and perennials in the same area

over summer. It will save the

heartache of accidentally digging

them up when planting, Allow

any bulbs that have flowered

brilliantly to naturalise (growing

and seeding as they would naturally

in the wild) in your garden,

especially freesias, hyacinth, iris,

lachenalias, muscari, narcissus

and watsonias.

Roses

New Zealand spring and early

summer is a marvellous time for

roses with masses of stunning

blooms, and plants are typically

disease free. If you do notice signs

of disease or pests – spray immediately.

Remember once you commit

to spraying, you must follow

a regular regime throughout the

season. Apply rose fertiliser every

five to six weeks from late September

(always avoid fertilising

over the hot summer months).

Fruit trees and

strawberries

Stone fruit are in full flower,

as are pip fruit like apples and

VULNERABLE:

Mark the position

of your late

winter/early

spring flowering

bulbs so you

don’t accidentally

dig them up.

pears. Fingers crossed for favourable

weather conditions (sunny

days and no strong winds) as it’s

critical for pollination by bees.

Unfortunately, heavy rain and

strong winds can have a major

impact on pollination resulting in

limited fruit.

Early strawberry varieties are

beginning to set fruit. Keep a

good layer of pea straw or hay

(mulch) around the plants to

keep berries clean and healthy.

With other berry plants such as

raspberries and boysenberries,

apply a copper oxychloride spray

to help prevent the occurrence of

summer disease.

Herbs

Plant your new seasons herbs.

Because many herbs are Mediterranean

plants, they prefer a warm,

sunny position in well-drained

soil and will struggle in dark,

shady locations. You can easily

grow herbs from seed; try basil,

borage, chives, coriander, dill,

fennel, parsley, rosemary, sage

and thyme. They can also grow

from cuttings, especially thyme,

sage, rosemary and tarragon.

Container gardens

It’s changeover time for flowering

annual displays. Violas and

pansies and ‘potted colour’ varieties

make excellent displays during

spring before you plant traditional

summer annuals. Always

clean pots between seasons and

use fresh container mix.

Lawns

You will notice new season

grass growth beginning. Apply

lawn fertiliser from late September

and avoid mowing too ‘close’

initially in spring – you don’t

want to ‘scalp’ the lawn. Check

your lawn mower blades are

sharp to make the cut cleaner;

otherwise they can tear out the

grass and damage growth.

Top tip: As the soil warms in

spring, mulch new and existing

plants in the garden or pots to

help suppress weeds and aid water

retention over the dry summer

months.

Gardening

Plant hardy veges for summer harvest

TASTE: Find a dry piece of soil and get onions in the ground now.

IT’S TIME for gardeners to

celebrate.

Temperatures are on the

rise, producing signs of spring

throughout the garden.

September can be a wet and

windy month so ensure you still

protect plants where need be. It’s a

busy but very enjoyable time, with

colour and scents slowly coming

back into the garden.

Final harvesting and removal of

winter maturing vegetables gives

plenty of material for the compost

bin. By staggering planting times,

hopefully these vegetables have

supplied you with continuous

supplies over winter.

Where conditions allow, ie soil

not too wet and temperatures

rising in your area, you can plant

the hardier vegetables for summer

harvesting. Remember the more

traditional summer vegetables

will be planted next month.

Those veges can include; asparagus,

beetroot, cabbage, cauliflower,

carrots, onion, radish, silverbeet

and spinach. Improve existing

vege plots with plenty of compost

before planting the new seasons

vegetables. Keep a wary eye for

slugs and snails as they emerge

when temperatures increase.

Time for preparing your summer

flowering garden. Winter annuals

are now coming to an end

of their flowering. While it’s still a

little early for planting traditional

summer annuals, there are some

that ‘transcend’ the typical growing

seasons and are very useful at

this time of year.

These include alyssum, calendulas,

cornflower, lobelia, pansies

and violas. If you wish to grow

your own summer flowering

annuals, seed should be sown

now either in a glasshouse or in

a warm, north facing enclosed

patio.

Sow and water regularly to ensure

even germination. Seedlings

should be ready for transplanting

into the garden six to eight weeks

after sowing.

Carefully mark the position of

your winter and spring flowering

bulbs as you may wish to grow

other plants in the same area over

summer months.

Where the bulbs have performed

well, allow them to

naturalise where they are growing.

This applies especially to

crocus, freesias, hyacinths, iris,

lachenalias, muscari, narcissus,

and watsonias.

Stone fruit such as apricots,

cherries, nectarines, peaches and

plums are all in bloom now, as are

pip fruit such as apples and pears.

Hopefully, weather conditions

allow for pollination by bees. Last

year’s heavy rainfall had a major

impact on pollination.

Rose growth is finally under

way. Spring/early summer is the

best time for roses with masses of

blooms and plants usually disease

free. The addition of compost

around the base of existing plants

is beneficial for plant health.

Start feeding roses from October

onwards with fertiliser.

Cut lawns regularly in early

spring, avoiding close mowing

initially. First lawn fertiliser can

be applied in late September/early

October.

Looking at a

lifestyle property

Mike Goatley

Living in the country away from

neighbours with land for the family

and pets, may be appealing. To

ensure a lifestyle property is the

right choice, step back and separate

the dream from the commitment

involved.

“Many people have a romantic

view of country living and I, like

many others love the lifestyle”, says

Mike Goatley, Principal of One

Agency Real Estate Specialists.

“If looking to buy a larger property,

weigh the size of the block against the

potential time it will take to maintain

it as well as the distances involved in

commuting to your day-to-day activities.”

Mike lives on a lifestyle property and

says the quality of a lifestyle block’s

infrastructure is significant.

Factors to consider include: access and

cost of providing services; existence of

and need for shelter belts for protection

from prevailing winds; quality of fencing

and stock management; and access ways

around the property.

The further the driveway, power and

communication networks must go to

the home, the greater the expense to

install and maintain. A sewerage system

must also be installed for waste water

management with septic systems and

disbursement fields for waste water

adding $15,000 to 25,000 (depending on

the system’s size).

“Water is usually not plumbed to a

town supply so a groundwater system

will involve drilling a well, and installing

a suitable pump and storage capacity

to maintain a safe quality supply to the

house,” advises Mike.

Historically, Canterbury wells went

down 15 to 30 metres. With dropping

water table levels, wells now need to be

deeper. Many shallow wells are being

replaced with new wells penetrating 55 to

60 metres to assure a stable water supply.

A well and pumping system adds around

$20,000 to $30,000. You will also need

water storage for sufficient water through

the seasons, including hot dry summers.

Another factor is the quality of the

land. Is it suitable for growing or grazing?

Heavier soils retain moisture so are good

for crops. If low lying, water may pond.

Sandy soils dry out quickly and are not

as fertile so plant growth is slower. A

simple cost effective soil test should

be undertaken when considering the

intended use for a particular block of

land.

The infrastructure on older lifestyle

blocks can be substandard if maintenance

has been deferred or not upgraded.

Shelter belts if not maintained can leave

boundary tree fencing susceptible to

wind damage or blowing over in high

winds. Poor fencing can threaten stock

security. Old concrete tanks could mean

poor water quality.

A lifestyle property in need of work

offers an opportunity for an energetic

and suitably skilled purchaser, who is

willing to do the work and invest in

infrastructure to improve and lift the

value of the land.

Mike has sold numerous rural

properties from lifestyle to small farms.

He emphasises the importance of doing

due diligence on the quality and type

of infrastructure on new and existing

lifestyle blocks. He is happy to advise

anyone considering purchasing a lifestyle

property.
