Plan to fix deadly intersections

$9.3 million

roundabouts

by mid-2021

• By Devon Bolger

ROUNDABOUTS will be

installed at two high-crash

intersections in Prebbleton – but

not until 2021.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency changed its previous

decision and will now fund the

safety work at the Shands and

Blakes Rds and Springs and

Marshs Rds intersections.

The projects will involve the

construction of roundabouts at

both intersections at a total cost of

about $9.7 million.

In June, it was revealed the

intersections did not qualify for

funding due to shortfalls.

The projects remained on

the national land transport

programme list and the district

council was told the funding has

been approved after further work

was undertaken on evaluating

them.

Detailed designs will now be

created and a substantial amount

of the work is due to be completed

by mid-2021.

District council transportation

asset manager Andrew Mazey

said the long construction period

is due to the amount of work

required.

TOP YARN on Southbridge rugby legend

and six-test All Black Alby Anderson today

(page 22).

In the article he rekindles another rugby

memory – the armed hold-up of the Southbridge

Hotel on Alby Anderson Day.

I remember it well. I was at The Press at the time. The police

scanner alerted us to the robbery and myself and a photographer

hit the accelerator.

The guys on the door at the pub had thought the robbers were

part of the entertainment and fooled around before they forced

their way in.

The guy behind the bar also thought it was a prank. A shot

into the ceiling changed that.

But the police were quick off the mark. The robbers were

captured near the Ellesmere golf course. I can still see the police

dog bite marks on the suspect.

Fulton Hogan releases

quarry evidence ahead of hearings

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FULTON HOGAN has released

its evidence ahead of next

month’s major hearings over

its plan to open a quarry near

Weedons.

About 16 reports have been

received by Environment

Canterbury in support of

the proposed

quarry between

Dawsons,

Curraghs, Jones

and Maddisons

Rds.

Experts have

Craig Stewart

provided a wide

range of evidence

on air quality,

human health, traffic effects,

noise, water quality and water

use.

Evidence has also been

received from Fulton Hogan

national environment and

sustainability manager Donald

Chittock and general manager

Craig Stewart.

In his evidence, Mr Stewart

said: “Fulton Hogan has invested

a significant amount of time

and resource into selecting and

developing the proposal for

Roydon Quarry.”

He said the quarry will be

commercially viable and has a

real opportunity to showcase

exemplary quarry management

and rehabilitation.

“Fulton Hogan is committed

to continuing engagement with

the (Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton)

community board beyond the

consent process.”

“We want to ensure . . .

Roydon is operated as a positive

contributor to communities.”

Mr Chittock said as a longterm

neighbour, Fulton Hogan

is committed to maintaining

a good relationship with

the community. He said the

company has made a number of

changes following consultation

with the public.

These include no processing

aggregates before 7am or after

Roundabouts to improve safety

•From page 1

Said Mr Mazey: “The

roundabouts are expected to be

dual lane and of a substantial

size that will require significant

changes to the existing road

corridor including the relocation

of services

such as

overhead

power lines

and drainage

systems.

“Being

constructed

on the

district

council’s two

Malcolm Lyall

main arterial

routes to

the city

and connecting to the Southern

Motorway extension means

construction will need to be

safely staged and balanced

with the need to minimise the

disruption to traffic.”

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall

said he would like to see the

project finished sooner, but he

accepts the reasons behind the

long time line.

The Shands and Blakes Rds

intersection was named the 10th

most dangerous in New Zealand

based on crash statistics.

NZTA figures show since 2011

IMPROVING: A roundabout will be installed at the Springs and Marshs Rds intersection by 2021

in a bid to improve safety.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

there has been two fatal crashes,

one serious, and nine minor at

the intersection.

Two people died in a crash

there in February last year. At

the Springs and Marshs Rds

intersection, there has been

one serious crash and two

non-injury crashes. An NZTA

spokesperson said higher traffic

volumes at the intersection as

part of the construction of the

Southern Motorway is leading

to an increase in safety issues,

particularly for traffic turning

out of Marshs Rd.

Cr Lyall said the district

council has been pushing for the

upgrades for two-and-a-halfyears

and he is pleased to see the

funding secured.

“I’m feeling very thankful.

These two particular

intersections have claimed

|lives so I’m very pleased we

have funding to get these two

done,” he said. He said although

it is good news, he is frustrated

with the delay.

“We thought we would’ve had

the funding by now and this is

just the start. There are several

other intersections that are very

important as well.

“Daily, we worry about our

teenagers and people driving

cars and their safety. I’m

very concerned about these

intersections,” he said.

NZTA director regional

relationships Jim Harland said

Canterbury is one of three

priority regions under the safe

network programme due to

the high number of deaths and

serious injuries.

“It is great to see the

Selwyn District Council,

in partnership with the

Christchurch City Council,

working with the safe network

programme team, for the benefit

of all road users and residents

through this increasingly busy

area.”

District arts co-ordinator

Becca Bouffandeau said the

festival is a celebration that

will give people a chance to

see a different perspective

on art in the district.

Selwyn has a lot of great

art and artists, but often we

don’t know them, they’re

just a signature in the

corner of a painting. The

festival will give people a

chance to get up close and

Teaching the next generation about

One of the few remaining

water education

programmes in New

Zealand is focusing

on teaching the next

generation about the

importance of aquatic

ecosystems and

waterways. Sophie

Cornish finds out more

DONNED IN oversized waders

and armed with nets and

enthusiasm, a group of Rolleston

College students splashed into

the Selwyn River.

The aquatic insects below the

surface stood little chance.

After disturbing their habitat

only slightly by swishing around

in their gumboots, the group of

year 9s scooped up water and

debris from below the surface.

It wasn’t until they got out of

the river and tipped their buckets

into a specimen tray that they

saw all the macro-invertebrates

– including worms, larvae and

nymphs – they had collected.

Having aquatic life present is

a good sign of the river’s water

condition, Waterwatch Education

Trust chairman Kelvin Nicolle

said.

The group then inspected and

identified each organism before

returning them to the river.

The class visit last week was one

of three from the college, which

along with hundreds of other

students, determined the ‘health’

of their local waterways, as part

of the trust’s environmental

outreach programme.

A growing focus nationally

on the controversial state of our

water meant the students were

already clued up on current

issues, including increasing

nitrate concentration levels.

High nitrate levels pose a

health risk, ECan chief scientist

Tim Davie said, including blue

baby syndrome, which affects

newborns, and the potential

to increase cases of colorectal

cancer.

‘There could be lots of

kids our age or even

younger coming up with

ideas to fix it‘

– Isabella McConaghty

Year 9 student Isabella

McConaghty believes all young

people should learn about the

importance of having clean

water.

“There could be lots of kids our

age or even younger coming up

with ideas to fix it. So I think it’s

important.

“The biggest concern is that

we won’t have any more sources

of fresh water. We’ll have to put

it through machines and cause

more chemicals to get in the

water,” she said.

Her classmate Tyler

McLaughlan is also concerned

about the future of our water and

the increasing pollutants getting

into it.

“Our drinking water is my

main concern. Water helps us,

animals, pretty much everything,

survive,” he said.

Each year, thousands of

science, biology and geography

students ranging from year 7

to 13 learn about various water

environments through the

programme.

healthy waterways

The programme also helps

community groups, university

students and teachers studying

agriculture, horticulture and

agribusiness.

The class starts with the

students being split into groups,

with one person collecting a

sample of water from the river.

Next, several experiments take

place using a variety of scientific

equipment to determine the

chemical make-up of the water,

including temperature, oxygen,

nitrate and phosphate levels.

Physical parameters of the

water’s profile such as streamflow,

turbidity, temperature and GPS

location data is also collected.

After this, the fun part begins,

with the students suiting up in

waders and trudging into the

river to collect their samples of

the aquatic insects.

The trust’s educators travel

across the region, with schools

examining their local streams,

rivers, ponds and lakes.

The programme was

established more than 20 years

ago and up until April 2017 it was

run by Lincoln University.

Now a charitable trust, it is

funded mainly by grants from

the Rata Foundation and is

delivered free of charge, in spite

of receiving only about $25,000

in funding annually.

Trust treasurer and educator

Erroll Wood said the educators

are mainly retirees who volunteer

their time, driven by their

passion for water education.

Up until recently, the

programme was one of several

nationwide, but most have now

ceased, in spite of the growing

focus on water issues.

“It’s important to educate the

next generation about current

and future challenges to our

water quality and availability.

We want students to be learning

about the environment, in the

environment; not as spectators

but as active participants,” Mr

Nicolle said.

Figures on nitrate

concentrations in the Selwyn

district’s water is continuing to

increase, in spite of limits being

put in place to try to reduce the

issue.

Chemical testing shows

nitrate levels have increased

in more than half of the tested

water schemes over the last two

years.

Water sources in Dunsandel,

TESTING: Ben Bowen (left) analyses samples from the Selwyn

River, which contains macro-invertebrates such as worms,

larvae and nymphs.

Rolleston, Kirwee, Lincoln,

Darfield, Southbridge, Sheffield,

Glentunnel, West Melton,

Springston and Springfield all

have increased concentrations,

some of which are more than

twice the 2017 levels.

An ECan spokesman

said the increases have come

from the intensification of

farming.

“The 1990s is the latest

phase of intensification, but

concentrations were already

increasing earlier than that, as

fertiliser application and stocking

rates increased. By the 1970s,

nitrate concentrations were well

above natural levels.

“The increases have been

greatest in areas where

the groundwater comes

predominantly from rainfall

that percolates through soil. This

includes the Selwyn-Waihora

zone. The rainwater leaches

nitrate from the soil and carries

it from the land surface into

groundwater,” said the ECan

spokesman.

Have you Bin

Inn lately?

Bin Inn Rolleston owners Andrew and Laura

are excited to welcome customers into

their brand new Bin Inn store located at

41 Tennyson Street, opposite Rolleston

Dental Centre.

“If you haven’t been to a Bin Inn for a while,

you’ll notice big changes,” says Bin Inn business

manager Trevor Craig. He says head office

recognized the significant growth in the Rolleston

area and saw the need for a specialist store that

could offer customers a huge variety of wholefood

and specialty groceries with a focus on healthy eating

and healthy lifestyles.

Mr Craig says the modern day Bin Inn is very different from

the past; gone are the bulky bins and barrels of yesteryear. Self-serve

shuttles are clean, hygienic and easy to use offering a wide variety

of products such as baking ingredients, dried fruits, nuts, seeds,

grains, and much more. Customers are actively encouraged

to bring along clean containers to refill so they can save on

packaging and save on the purchasing price – a discount is

offered to those who bring along their own containers.

Bin Inn Rolleston brings to its customers a unique style of

self-serve shopping at competitive prices, while also catering

to specialist needs such as home brewing, where you’ll find

everything you need to make beer, wine, and spirits. You can

also make your own 100% natural peanut and almond butters

instore, and bottle oils, sauces, honey and vinegars – the customer

chooses whether they buy a little or a lot!

The bright and spacious Rolleston store has nearly everything

you need from eco cleaning products, pet food, Asian, Mexican,

and Dutch to gluten and sugar free, vegan, and organic products.

There is a huge range of herbs and spices, breakfast cereals,

confectionary and snack foods. A range of chilled and frozen food

is available, along with a delicious selection of Dutch cheese to

choose from.

Andrew and Laura have a background in the business and

previously owned the Stanmore Street Bin Inn for nearly six years.

The family-focused couple has three children and look forward to

meeting the community over the next few weeks.

Bin Inn Rolleston is open seven days a week Monday to Friday

8.30am - 5.30pm, Saturday 9am - 5.30pm and Sunday 10am to

proposed quarry.

But because

the temple has no

resource consent,

the district council

said it has received

legal advice that

any possible

adverse effects on

the temple from

the quarry are to

be disregarded.

Fulton Hogan

wants to open

a quarry on a

170ha piece of

land at Curraghs,

Dawsons, Jones and Maddisons

Rds – directly opposite the

temple.

The district council has

learned the temple does not

have resource consent for the

spiritual and associated activities

it undertakes on the site.

As a result, the temple only

applied for its resource consent

on September 5, and it is

currently being processed by the

district council.

The temple, which is located

at 358 Maddisons Rd, is on land

deemed “inner rural zone” under

the Selwyn District Plan.

The district council’s advice to

disregard the impact the quarry

may have on the temple was

in the independently prepared

Section 42A reports.

The reports prepared for

Environment Canterbury

and the district council both

recommended the quarry is

declined at the hearing unless

changes are made.

Within the reports, Beca

engineering consultant Andrew

Henderson, who was contracted

by the district council, said the

legal advice received on the

temple was “the scale of activities

undertaken on the site exceeds

the permitted thresholds for a

spiritual activity in the Selwyn

District Plan.

“The temple is operating in

the absence of any consents, any

CONSENT

Samadhi

Trust

Rd. ​

adverse effects on it are to be

disregarded.”

But district council

environmental services planning

manager Jesse Burgess said the

decision on whether the temple’s

submissions will be considered

will ultimately be made by

the panel of commissioners at

the hearing over the proposed

quarry in November.

Mr Burgess said the district

council first became aware of

the temple last year when the

temple asked general questions

about District Plan requirements

for the activities its wished to

undertake on the site.

The temple moved from

Hornby to the Maddisons Rd site

in 2017. Mr Burgess said when

the Samadhi Buddhist Trust

made a submission on the Fulton

Hogan quarry, the district

council’s consultant planner

wanted to better understand

the temple activities so it could

understand the effects the quarry

would have on it.

It then became evident

the temple did not have the

appropriate resource consent as

outlined in the submissions.

Templeton Residents’

Association secretary Jolene

Eagar said the community loves

having the temple and the people

who use it are very welcoming.

She said having a quarry

across from the temple will have

a significant impact and it will

be a shame if the submissions

from people associated with the

temple cannot be heard at the

hearing.

“It doesn’t matter if their

resource consent application

hasn’t been completed, they still

need to have a voice because they

will be affected,” Mrs Eagar said.

Selwyn Times was unable

to get in touch with temple

representatives for comment.

Interchange opening a

year later than expected

• By Devon Bolger

IT HAS been revealed the

Weedons interchange on

the Southern Motorway was

supposed to be fully completed a

year ago.

New Zealand Transport

Agency principal project manager

Geoff Griffiths said it had

been hoped that the interchange

would be open for full use in

late-2018.

He said there have been

delays in opening the interchange

fully.

“There were a number of

factors contributing to the

overall delay, which were not

unexpected on a project the

size of CSM2. Extra time was

required to ensure the work was

completed to the right specifications

and to eliminate the risk

of having to come back later to

do more costly, disruptive and

time-consuming repairs.

“The desire to be sure everything

was right meant some

weather-dependent work went

into the 2018 winter period,

pushing the interchange staging

out a year.”

The overbridge, as part of

DELAY: The Weedons Interchange, as part of the Southern

Motorway, was expected to be fully completed in mid-2018 but

now won’t be finished until Christmas. ​

the interchange, was officially

opened in July.

The final piece of work to complete

the project is opening the

southbound off-ramp which will

happen before Christmas.

This will happen once the

southbound lanes of the motorway

between Robinsons Rd and

Weedons Rd are completed, Mr

Griffiths said.

Weedons Residents Association

chairman Stephen Bain said

the delay is a shame for those

who put up with the roadworks

and interruptions while traveling.

“Although, when you look at

the big picture, this new motorway

and the interchange are going

to be brilliant for the district

and towns,” he said.

Wastewater solutions to be

presented to new council

• By Devon Bolger

THE BUSINESS case on

wastewater solutions for Darfield

and Kirwee is almost complete

and will be presented to the

newly-elected council.

Initial public consultation on

the potential development of a

reticulated wastewater system for

the townships was completed in

July.

A district council spokesman

said the feedback will inform the

writing of a business case which

is expected to be completed in a

couple of weeks.

It will then be presented to

the new district council which

is set to have its first meeting on

October 30.

Darfield and Kirwee are two

of the largest un-sewered communities

in the country.

In the 30-year infrastructure

strategy 2018–2048, the district

council stated it would consult

the community on the possible

establishment of a reticulated

wastewater system in the townships.

Whether the proposal goes

ahead or not will depend on the

need for it. It will be based on

the community’s feedback which

will form the business case, a

BUSINESS CASE: Darfield and

Kirwee are two of the largest

New Zealand.

district council spokesman said.

A joint working party was

formed in 2017 involving representatives

from the district council,

Malvern Community Board,

Darfield and Kirwee Township

committees, Canterbury District

Health Board and Environment

Canterbury to consider options

for the possible establishment of

a wastewater scheme

The party has previously indicated

that the existing system of

on-site treatment systems is not

currently having a detrimental

effect on the environment.

However, the establishment of

a reticulated scheme is an option

for consideration as it may

enable future commercial and

industrial development.

Enthusiastic over Rolleston fireworks

Rolleston

fireworks

committee

chairman Chris

O’Brien talks

about the

event

THE ROLLESTON fireworks

event is alive and well.

There has been a new committee

formed this year that will help

continue the event for many more

years to come.

Both Jens Christianson (chair)

and Trisha Pullin (secretary) are

both stepping down from the fireworks

committee after running

the event for well over 20 years.

They have both given their heart

and soul to the event and have

made it the amazing success it is

today.

Both Gail, the new secretary,

and I, the new chair, have big

shoes to fill and we will do our

very best to make sure the event

continues.

There are a lot of individuals

and groups that contribute to the

event’s success and it cannot be

done without all the volunteers,

local not-for-profit organisations,

contractors and most of all the

residents of Selwyn.

We are completely reliant on the

Selwyn communities attending

and supporting this great afternoon

and evening out.

This event is completely run by

volunteers and a majority of the

funding is provided by the residents

of Selwyn at the gate.

We will also continue to

ensure the event is running for

local Selwyn organisations and

residents to benefit from and will

remain dedicated to not making

this event a commercial one.

I will be taking over from Jens

this year and beginning next year

look to continue his dedicated

leadership of the event for many

more years to come.

We look forward to hosting

thousands again this year on

November 9 with a lot of family

activities, live music and performances,

food and drinks and with

any luck fresh off a World Cup

victory.

Yes, I have ordered good

weather too, so that portion of

concern is all sorted.

See you all there.

Readers respond to the

Selwyn Times article on

the district council banning

the roadside advertising of

vehicles for sale

Dave Davies – This is a

ridiculous proposition – no

doubt thought up by some petty

bureaucrats lurking deep within

the district council. It is petty and

trivial in the extreme. What is the

difference between a car parked

at the side of the road without

a sign compared to one with a

sign? Why can’t this council focus

on undertaking initiatives that

actually need doing, such as road

repairs? I am aghast at what it

comes up with.

A Norton’Thompson – I

wonder will the council extend

this to all forms of advertising?

Their belief is that the car for sale

causes a distraction to anyone

driving by. I challenge that. I say

all advertising is a distraction and

should therefore be banned under

the same guise. A good example

is the corner of Breezes and Pages

Rds. A huge digital billboard that

is lower than normal allowing

bright light to distract any driver

when sitting at lights. How did

that get past planning? This has

only come about as some car

salesperson does not want the

average man to make a profit from

their own property – plain and

simple.

Facing her fear of deer

SO A COUPLE of week’s

ago I theorised that

Vittoria’s experience of

hand-feeding a kangaroo

in Australia would mean

she would no longer be

scared to feed the deer or

other larger animals at

Willowbank.

And I was right. Mostly.

I finally got around to

taking Vittoria back to Willowbank

this week (getting

the most out of that annual

pass) and made sure to grab

some animal food on the

way into test the theory.

Confidence swelled as she

got keen enough to “borrow”

some bird food from

a passerby to throw at a

duck near the entrance. Not

that ducks were scary for

her before, but it’s like she’s

feeding an animal right?

The first obstacle to my

experiment was the fact

that the deer were hiding

in the far corner of their enclosure.

Calling them over

also drew in the second

obstacle – more ducks.

A pair of the brazen

little beggers initially shied

Vittoria away from feeding

the deer as they sniffed

about for a bit of the food

as well. But they gave up

soon enough and thankfully

Vittoria maintained

her composure.

I handed her some food

pellets, encouraged her

towards the fence. She

reached out and didn’t

even shy or flinch as a deer

moved in for a nibble.

As its lips rubbed on her

hand she let out a giggle of

joy and reached for more

food.

Her enthusiasm was limited

to the deer, however.

After a half-hearted attempt

at throwing some food at

a kunekune, the prospect

of feeding a donkey was a

bridge too far.

By the time we got to the

wee sheep (animals she

had managed to feed once

to just munch on some

corn snacks and watch me

feed them.

So ended Vittoria’s animal

feeding fun for the day.

Might not have lasted

long, but it was pretty

cool seeing her over the

fear of docile animals. She

also repeatedly shushed a

bolshy rooster so she could

concentrate on lunch, so

she was definitely top of my

cool list for the day.

Dig out historic photos for competition

GIVEN TIME, even the most

ordinary photo can be an

extraordinary window into a

different world.

This photo, picturing the

intersection of High, Hereford

and Colombo Sts, was

a highly commended entry

in Christchurch City Libraries’

2008 photo hunt. It was

submitted by Tony Bowie and

shows his mother and grandmother

on their way to shop

in High St in the late 1950s.

During the 1950s, the

central city was the prime

destination for shopping in

Christchurch, and women

would don hats and gloves for

their trip into town.

The central city enjoyed

this shopping heyday in the

first half of the 20th-century,

coinciding with the peak of

reliance on public transport

– first trams, then buses. Cathedral

Square was the central

hub of the city’s transport

network, which connected the

suburbs to the city centre.

It was customary for people

to go into town to shop, and

to “take tea” in the tea rooms

of the major department

stores located on both sides of

Cathedral Square.

Beca Christchurch Heritage

Festival 2019 starts on October

7 and this year, as part

of the festival, Christchurch

City Libraries is celebrating

10 years of the Christchurch

photo hunt.

Over the past decade, the

photo hunt has collected

hundreds of great photos like

this one, and Christchurch

City Libraries hopes people

will dust off their collections

and unearth some more

treasures.

This year’s competition

runs until October 31. Your

Railway line key to the historical

THE DEVELOPMENT of

the railways is recognised as

having historic significance

in the growth of numerous

communities within the Selwyn

District.

THe township of Dunsandel is a

classic example of this, although

its establishment as a railway

settlement initially came through

the demise of the planned

township of Selwyn.

In 1862, in anticipation of the

extension of the Great Southern

Railway Line south-west from

Rolleston Junction, land for a

township called Selwyn was

subdivided on the southern side

of the Selwyn (Waikirikiri) River,

near where the Selwyn Bridge is

located.

Little development was undertaken

until a railway station was

opened in 1867, after which Selwyn

briefly flourished. The village

included a bakery, a blacksmith,

a bootmaker, a butcher, a saddler,

a wheelwright, a livery stable, a

boarding house and hotel.

However, the village was prone

development of Dunsandel

Although first established

through the railway, the

settlement quickly became an

essential service township for

local farmers. Access to water

was easily obtained in the

area through shallow wells,

with a number of early settlers

establishing large freehold farms

in the late 1860s, prior to the

railway coming through.

Many of the early farm houses

were modest cob cottages made

from mud and straw in the

style typically found in rural

Scotland and Ireland during the

19th-century. Many substantial

homesteads were later built

to replace the cottages as the

farmers’ wealth increased.

Early details of the township

are limited, but one of the first

buildings of consequence appears

to have been the blacksmith shop

built by William Walker in 1871

at the intersection of what is now

State Highway 1 and Hororata

Rd. Descendants of Walker still

remain in the district.

At one stage in the mid-

1890s Dunsandel could boast

having two hotels. The original

hotel, located on Railway Tce,

was reported as being in an

DELIVERIES: The Dunsandel General Store wagon around 1900.

unsatisfactory state of repair,

but the Canterbury Licensing

Committee agreed to renew the

liquor licence.

Around this time the old

unused hotel at Selwyn was

hauled to Dunsandel on

rollers by a traction engine

and eventually replaced the

original. It became the township’s

favourite ‘watering hole’ until its

closure in 1955; the same year the

present Dunsandel Tavern was

built.

The coming of the railway to

the settlement quickly led to

the establishment of the usual

type of local businesses needed

in small rural towns. The first

general store was built by Watt

& Co on the Leeston Dunsandel

Rd, near the railway, and was

managed by John Henry, who

also acted as postmaster for a

short time from 1880. The post

office was originally situated

at the railway station. Henry

later bought the business, which

operated through various owners

until 1980. The building is now a

private residence.

The current Dunsandel Store

and Café began life as a billiard

room and cycle shop during the

1920s.

During the Great Depression

of the early 1930s the businesses

were closed and the property was

used as a private residence.

In 1950 the Rapley family

turned the property into a dairy,

with tearooms being added in

1952.

Since that time the building has

POPULAR: The Dunsandel

grain store around 1910.

been transformed and remains

a popular eatery for both locals

and travellers passing through.

The railway was integral to

the people of Dunsandel. It was

not just a means of travel and

of getting produce to markets,

but it also had a huge social

significance.

The mail arrived by train

daily and it was where people

congregated on special occasions,

such as farewells for newly-weds

and local men going off to war,

and welcoming them back.

Special trains were a regular

feature in the early years, with

annual excursions to the A&P

Show in Christchurch, along with

church and school picnic trains

taking locals as far as Timaru on

occasions.

LANDMARK: The Dunsandel Hotel on Railway Tce around

1900.

Improved roading led to

demise of railway services

•From page 17

The railway also played a

part in the education of local

children.

Free railway passes were

provided to rural children to

allow them to attend secondary

school.

Although a primary school

had been established in

Dunsandel as early as 1879,

prior to the 1920s few children

went on to secondary school

and those few who did from

the township daily had to travel

on the train to Ashburton, and

later to Christchurch.

It was not until the 1950s

that a school bus system was

provided so that the children

could then attend Lincoln High

School.

Improved roading and the

affordability of private cars

led to the demise of local

passenger rail services to

Dunsandel in the late 20thcentury.

This led to the closure of the

railway station in 1973 and its

demolition several years later.

In spite of this, Dunsandel’s

future remains secure in still

providing much-needed local

services for the agricultural

sector.

Fruit trees project a success

FOR FIVE years the Lincoln

Envirotown Trust and local

businessman Alan Peacock have

planted 10 fruit trees each year in

every school in the district.

The trees into schools programme

first began in 2015 and is

now coming to an end.

Mr Peacock, who owns Independent

Signs, first voiced the

idea during a visit with a responsible

business co-ordinator from

the trust.

He then got together a group

of businesses that were willing to

sponsor the initiative.

Envirotown trust project

manager Dave Fitzjohn said he is

pleased with how the programme

has gone.

“It was Alan’s dream to bring in

the fruit for school kids in Selwyn

and it was great for us to be

involved because it was a project

that was sustainable and benefited

the community,” he said.

Around 200 trees were planted

each year since the start of the

programme.

“There’s around 1000 fruit trees

in the grounds of schools that

weren’t there five years ago so we

think that’s pretty awesome.”

Recently Weedons School pupil

Sharria Rangihuna revisited the

tree she helped to plant that first

partner in the project was Aaron

Bartlett whose company The Outdoor

Space undertook to deliver

the trees and advise the students

on their planting.

“The students also got to play

a significant role in determining

the placing, planting and use of

the fruit in years to come.

“Most of the primary schools

in the district have benefited

from the initiative including new

schools that came into existence

after it all started.”

Lincoln Envirotown would

like to thank the businesses that

helped make the programme

possible, Mr Fitzjohn said.

2019 LocAL ELEctionS - meet your candidates

Debra Hasson Standing for Selwyn District Council

Paid Advertising Feature

Out campaigning I have listened to your

concerns about the following;

CLIMATE CHANGE – Responding to “The

Press” survey I strongly agreed our current

lifestyles need to change to give our youth

a future. This is the only planet we have to

live on. Council needs to encourage our

community to use less.

WATER – Is it safe to drink? For a

community supply “yes”. Council through the

collection of water rates has a responsibility

to treat at risk water supplies. Join Council’s

Selwyn Gets Ready” to receive text messages

updating any contamination issues of

your local supply. For those on individual

bores the responsibility to test and treat is

yours. Predictions show water nitrate levels

increasing over the next 28 years before any

improvement is seen as farmers now have to

manage the amount of nitrogen applied to their

land. Not a success story but one Council has

to improve.

ROADING – Council needs to budget for

repairing roads never designed for increasing

volumes of heavy traffic. In the mean-time a

dangerous road will have a reduced speed

limit. For those using Birches Road please

drive to the 50km limit set.

BUS SERVICE- Some Tai Tapu residents

wished for a bus service. Council needs to

prepare a case and lobby ECan to investigate.

ON A POSITIVE NOTE – Your overwhelming

support for Selwyn as a great place to live,

valuing arts, culture and Envirotown principles

is the Council I am proud to represent.

Authorised by Debra Hasson, 152 Chamberlains Road, Springston 7674.

Sam Broughton Selwyn Mayor - Standing for re-election

Kia ora,

I love serving our community as Mayor and

I am excited to continue to lead our council into

the next decade.

I live in Darfield with my wife Liz and our two

year old daughter Elliott.

Selwyn continues to grow and change, as

do the expectations on council that I hear from

our community. We need leadership around

our council table that can honour our heritage,

remain focused on meeting the needs of today

and plan wisely for our future.

One in four people currently living in

Selwyn didn’t live in our District five years

ago. This growing diversity and many fresh

perspectives can help us make the most of our

opportunities. For the past 3 years as Mayor

I have lead a council that has made major

investments into community infrastructure,

overseen the completion of earthquake works,

and been awarded an AA+ rating from Fitch

Ratings, the highest award of any council in

New Zealand.

Over the next 3 years I want to continue

to lead a council where we deliver on

the major projects that have begun, we

continue to advocate for new funding

mechanisms for Local Government to

address rates affordability, we take a more

proactive approach to tourism and economic

development, and we engage in the leadership

conversations of climate change and

freshwater management. I want to work with

those of you who love this place to ensure

we make the best long term decisions for our

future.

I appreciate your continued support this

election.

Malcolm Lyall Standing for Springs Ward

I am a 62 year old Electical Contractor.

I live in Prebbleton with my wife and have two

children. I am standing as an independent.

I have been involved in local government in

Selwyn District for 16 years and am presently

Deputy Mayor.

Over the last ten years I have also served

as a trustee on many non profit Arts, Culture,

Environmental and Heritage organisations in

Canterbury. In these roles I have developed

strong govenance skills which I bring to the

council table.

I effectively advocate for and work with

a diverse range of people across Selwyn to

ensure that their voice is heard.

I am seeking re-election as I would like to

continue to represent the people of Springs

Ward. I am passionate about preserving the

best that this area offers, while embracing the

opportunities created by growth.

Over the past three years I have worked to

secure funding for local roading upgrades and

township and community projects ,including

a new community hall/centre for Prebbleton,

new recreational space for this ward and the

Lincoln Town center master plan.

I would like to see the township and

community projects through to completion.

Local roading upgrades are under threat

due to changes in central govenment funding

policy. I want to ensure that the planned

roading upgrades are funded as previously

agreed and completed.They are desperately

needed.

If re-elected I will continue to be a strong

voice who will effectively advocate for the

people of Springs Ward and Selwyn District.

John Sunckell Standing for Environment Canterbury - Mid-Canterbury Ōpākihi

It has been a privilege to represent Mid

Canterbury - Ashburton and Selwyn Districts.

I am standing for re election because not only

have I genuinely enjoyed my first term, I feel I

have made a very positive and real contribution.

I understand politics and how to engage in

processes to achieve the best outcomes

possible in what at times are almost no win

situations.

Through the Canterbury Water Management

Strategy portfolio, I’ve led the Selwyn River

recharge programme, advocated for the

review of Ashburton River consents allowing

for adaptation and achieved the statutory

acknowledgement of the Hinds Drains working

group recommendations.

Through the Hazard and Risk portfolio I am

the ECan nominee on the Canterbury Group

Civil Defence committee, and at present I

am the deputy Chair. This has given me the

opportunity to work with both the Minister and

the Civil Defence Ministry in providing input into

what the new Emergency Response Ministry

will look like ,and the processes and systems

that sit under it.

I believe that the combination of my 3

years at Ecan, 32 years on the road as a

volunteer ambulance officer, and life time in

rural communities has given me unique insight

into environmental management issues and

the process and impact of these on both the

community and individuals. A vote for me will

ensure an informed and steady hand remains at

the council table, representing and advocating

for Mid Canterbury.

Authourised by John Sunckell, 100 Calwells Road, Leeston.

Alexandra Davids Standing for Canterbury District Health Board

I am fully committed to giving all members

of our communities the strong, positive

representation they deserve.

I have been an elected member since 2013.

In this time, I have held a variety of positions,

including my daily work with Women’s Refuge

at the Battered Women’s Trust which has

given me an insight into the daily struggles

Keep New Zealand Beautiful, Chair of Keep

Christchurch Beautiful, Elected Member of the

Local Government Young Elected Members

Board, Local Government Elected Member

of the national Community Board Executive

Committee, Trustee of the Graeme Dingle

Foundation, Chair of Whitau School.

These experiences have given me the

opportunity to continue to develop the

leadership and mediation skills we need

around the table within the CDHB for us to

make positive steps forward for the entire

Canterbury region.

I am a proactive, results-focussed candidate

with the enthusiasm and energy needed to

effect positive change.

As your elected representative I aim to

strongly advocate for a parking solution for

Christchurch Hospital, future focussed decision

population, more support for mental health and

chlorine free water.

2019 LocAL ELEctIoNS - meet your candidates

Sophie McInnes Standing for Selwyn Central Ward

Paid Advertising Feature

Kia ora, and thank you for your interest in

local elections!

I’m passionate about representing young

families, youth, immigrants, and the ruralurban

mix that’s developing here. After years of

making submissions and debating needs versus

rates with other residents, I am 100% ready to

give those opinions a louder voice in council.

I have lived in Selwyn Central for 6 years –

first on a lifestyle block in Broadfield, and more

recently in Rolleston. I love big multi-faceted

challenges, and my employment history as a

PA ranges from small business to education

and local government. For the last few years I

have been a full-time mum of three and chronic

volunteer however, which has given me greater

insight into our community as a whole.

I love how Selwyn is becoming somewhere

that we all can truly live, work, play, and learn,

but believe we need to do more to reduce how

much time and money our residents actually

spend in Christchurch.

I want to continue the development of local

facilities, businesses, and infrastructure,

but also ensure that council listens to the

community when debating the new District Plan,

and fully considers the impacts on our people,

land, and water.

The coming years will also be huge in terms

of applying climate change-related legislation

at a local level. We need to work harder to

minimise waste, engage young people in longterm

decisions, and support a strong districtwide

community.

what’s important to you too.

Nicole Reid Standing for Selwyn Central Ward

Selwyn Central, namely Rolleston, has been

my home for the last nine years. I love living

here so I stood for council in 2016, and was

honoured to be elected. I am passionate about

the Selwyn District. I truly want our district to

the best it can be with healthy, sustainable

communities that all ages and abilities can

enjoy. To achieve this, I believe it is my duty to

listen and advocate for our community.

As a mother of three boys (9, 11, 13 years), I

have been actively involved in the community. I

am a past Chairperson of Rolleston Residents

Association, previous member of Rolleston

School BoT, and was a scout leader.

My background is in environmental

engineering and planning so I am able to

understand and question the technical detail

reported to Council. I have taken a strong

interest in water, waste and wastewater issues,

the Rolleston town centre development, the

indoor courts facility, Te Ara Ātea (library/

community space), and the district plan review

as well. Road safety has also been a key focus

of mine and I am currently the district road

safety committee’s chairperson. I also currently

represent mid-Canterbury councils (Selwyn

and Ashburton) on the Canterbury Water

Management Strategy Regional Committee.

All of this work is still ongoing so I ask for your

continued support by re-electing me. Please

feel free to contact me directly:

Mark Alexander Standing for Selwyn Central Ward

I’m passionate about the people and

communities of the Selwyn Central Ward and

the Selwyn District. As a current councillor I

am a strong and experienced advocate for our

communities.

My wife and I have lived in the Selwyn for 25

years, bringing up our son (20). In this time, I

have been a member, volunteer, and supporter

of our sports clubs and community groups.

I believe in strong open honest

communication between residents, communities

and council. I’m not afraid to ask and answer

the hard questions – no matter if the question or

answer is unpopular.

I have advocated and worked for improved

public transport, more footpaths, new and

expanded schools, new community facilities,

new sports grounds and reserves, promoted

and supported road safety initiatives and

improvements. There’s more to do.

An accredited Resource Management

Act Commissioner I have to knowledge and

experience to help get our new District Plan

through the public notification stage, hearings

and deliberations to decisions.

Rate rises need to be as little as possible,

but as much as necessary to maintain council’s

assets and provide the services that residents

have asked for.

I will continue to work hard for you and

your community - not another employer, political

party, or lobby group, representing you and your

community’s aspirations.

My work for our community, our district isn’t

finished. I have the knowledge, experience,

energy, passion, enthusiasm and commitment

to deliver for you!

I need your support, your vote, to work for

you and your community.

Allen Lim Standing for Environment Canterbury - Mid-Canterbury Ōpākihi

We could not be at a more crucial time of

need for a practical approach to issues that

confront us daily – degradation of water,

imbalanced biodiversity, mahinga kai, climate

change, the economy and more.

These issues desperately need our attention,

yet they cannot be solved overnight, or by

simplistically focusing on only one element of

this complex situation. We urgently need an

integrated approach that takes us on a transition

to a new way of living in, and sustaining, our

environment.

For this reason, I am standing as a candidate

for the ECan Mid Canterbury – Ōpākihi

region. I want to play a part of preserving our

environment for future generations, while

ensuring the changes made still support our

communities. I believe I have the experience

and capability to do so.

I am an entrepreneur and a commercial

horticultural farmer. I am a degree qualified

Mechanical Engineer and am a member of

the government advisory Freshwater Leaders

Group, the Selwyn-Waihora Water Zone

Committee where I was Chair for 4 years.

I sit on multiple industry boards including

Vegetables New Zealand Inc, Horticulture

Canterbury Growers Society, and NZGAP.

I know ECAN is not just about water, that’s

where I can bring my range of proven skills to

bear. I am a good listener and have balanced

views. Most importantly, I recognise we are

all in this together and therefore need to work

together.

Vote for tangible and balanced action on

water issues, vote for Allen Lim.

Jeff Bland Standing for Selwyn Central Ward

Vote Jeff Bland for Selwyn Central Ward

I am once again standing for councillor for the

Selwyn Central Ward. It has been a privilege to

have represented this ward for these last nine

years.

During this time I have advocated on your

behalf for better facilities, more schools,

improved bus services, new parks and reserves,

better roads and footpaths. I have pushed for

better recognition for the arts, the preservation

of our history and culture. I am driven to achieve

results for the wider community and prepared to

listen and take your views and issues seriously.

Together we can make our district a better place

to live, work, and play.

I am passionate about our district and have

enjoyed living in the Selwyn Central Ward with

my wife Julie and family for the last 22 years. I

am now retired from the New Zealand Police,

with the last four years of my 38-year career

based at Selwyn. I have also served on the

Selwyn Central Community Board and many

local community groups and have an in-depth

understanding of how local governance works.

Once again I ask for your vote so I can

represent you with dignity, honesty and, as

always, with a common sense approach

to resolving the issues and challenges that

confront us. A vote for me will give the Selwyn

Central Ward an opportunity to continue to grow

and prosper. I look forward to working with you

in the future.

SELWYN TIMES

Southbridge’s original World Cup legend

With the Rugby World

Cup under way, Selwyn

Times talks to a member

of the victorious 1987 team.

Gordon Findlater caught

up with Southbridge legend

and six-test All Blacks lock

Albert Anderson

ALBERT ANDERSON is the

first to admit he spent more time

drinking Steinlager than on

the field during the All Blacks

successful 1987 Rugby World

Cup campaign.

The lock played just one game

in the tournament – a 74-13

demolition of Fiji at Lancaster

Park. He spent much of the

campaign as a member of the

‘dirty dirties’ – a name coined

for the World Cup squad

members playing no part in the

matches.

“I was a dirty dirty a fair bit of

the time . . . we had to go to the

functions and drink all of the

Steinlager,” he said.

Anderson, now 58 and living

on the family farm where he

grew up in Southbridge, was a

key cog in the Canterbury side

of the 1980s which famously

held the Ranfurly Shield for 24

successive defences from 1982-

1985. In total he played 143 times

for Canterbury between 1981

and 1990.

He played for Southbridge as

a junior before boarding at St

Andrew’s College where he went

on to make the first XV.

“The two years I was in the

first XV we lost to Christ’s

College – that’s my biggest rugby

disappointment,” he said.

The Christ’s College team

which eluded him contained

many players he would go on to

play with at Canterbury and in

the All Blacks, including Jock

Hobbs, Robbie Deans, Bruce

Deans and Joe Leota.

Anderson spent many of his

years in red and black under the

guidance of Alex Wyllie, whose

training sessions he does not

miss.

“He did it his way, which was

fine, we got the results . . . I can’t

say I’d go back and do it all over

again if I knew what was coming.

I’m very glad I had him, though,

that’s for sure.

– Albert Anderson

leapfrogging and Murray Davie

looked across to me and said

‘we just beat the New Zealand

sprint champion’.”

Anderson was involved in

Canterbury’s famous 23-28

Ranfurly Shield loss to Auckland

at Lancaster Park in 1985.

Anderson scored Canterbury’s

last try in a spirited second half

comeback.

An image of the try went on

to inspire the ‘Albert Anderson

Player of the Year’ shield which

is presented annually to the top

Southbridge player.

“It was a good photo in the

paper of Foxy [Grant Fox]

trying to hold me up, so the

Southbridge publican made up

a leather shield with the photo

on it.”

Each year the shield, now in

wooden form, is presented on

‘Alby Anderson Day’. The annual

event raises money for different

causes in the Southbridge

community and has been hosted

at a number of venues in the

area. It is estimated to have

raised about $500,000 for the

local community over the years.

The day also has a reputation

for unexpected events. Events on

Alby Anderson Day include the

death of Princess Diana, a major

snow event and the Southbridge

Hotel being held up at gun point.

Outside of the 1987 World

Cup, Anderson was involved in

All Blacks tours to Australia and

the United Kingdom. However,

one of his favourites was the

1985 tour to Argentina.

“Steinlager were sponsoring us

then and they put a pallet

of beer on the plane with us

when we left. We drank the

last of it just before we left

to come back, but actually

Argentinian beer is really nice

so we wouldn’t have needed

it. I don’t like the Aussie beers

and hate Pommy beer, but the

Argentinians made some good

beer,” said Anderson.

Free drinks were one of the few

perks in the days of playing for

the national side before rugby

went professional, but Anderson

has no qualms over the lack of

six figure contracts like those

received by players now.

“We got a £12 sterling a day

player allowance. So when you’re

on tour that was seven days a

week. That was just about a bit

more than what I was earning

here, so that wasn’t bad for a

little country fellow like me. All

the yuppie Aucklanders would

go and spend it on a new pair of

fancy shoes and it’d be gone,”

said Anderson.

His last stint with the All

Blacks included six tour games

in 1988, in which he captained

the side in four. After his final

season with Canterbury in 1989,

Anderson played a handful of

seasons for Southbridge before

dislocating his knee.

The injury paved the way for

his current sporting passion –

cycling.

“If you told me 30 years ago

I’d be wearing lycra and riding

a bike I’d probably smack you,”

he said.

Anderson can be found riding

around the Port Hills most

weekends and has even cycled

in Vietnam, France, Croatia,

Austria and Germany with his

wife Sandy.

His claim to fame with

cycling – which he reinforces

that he is “actually bloody

good” at – is keeping pace with

Hamish Bond and George

Bennett during a downhill

section in the Abel Tasman

Cycle Challenge.

The defending 45-over

While they have lost Ben

ONE TO WATCH: New Zealand age-group representative Jesse Frew will boost Darfield’s batting ranks this season, while Leeston-Southbridge will be tough to

beat after winning both the 45-over and the T20 premier competitions last season.

Teams to keep an eye on this season

Leeston-Southbridge are likely to remain the measuring stick for teams in the Canterbury Country premier cricket competition which

starts on Saturday. Jacob Page looks at what each team from Selwyn will bring to the table this season

Player/coach Dave Beatty said

the team are largely settled and

eager to make the most of their

opportunities.

“We only lost one guy from

last season because he went on

his OE but the rest of us were

prepared to go down and try to

get us back to the top grade,”

Beatty said.

“After Christmas, we’ll have

New Zealand age-group rep Jesse

Frew available and two or three

players who play first XI cricket

in town.”

Beatty said the close

relationships his club have with

Kirwee, Sheffield, Malvern and

Greendale means there is now a

areas to play premier cricket.

of the T20 competition

any momentum in the 45-over

format.

Captain Sam Wilson said

the return of club junior James

Watson at the top of the batting

order will be a huge boost.

“He’s a very capable batsman

and will hopefully give us a solid

foundation at the top of the

order,” Wilson said.

“We want to try to build a

good team culture with plans

for the season and the more

They will be eager to make sure

they are not one-season wonders.

this season will be about reestablishing

Lincoln in the

Jeremy Benton is unlikely to play

much for the team as he spends

time playing in Ireland, while

Joel Harden, who was on loan to

Leeston-Southbridge last year,

has decided to stay with the

title winning club for another

season.

Lincoln will welcome back Joe

Williams, the younger brother of

Canterbury representative Will

Williams. He should offer a solid

top-order batting option. Carlito

Shalfoon, a wicket-taking quick

bowler, is set to come on board

midway through the season.

“We have a fairly young side,

but we played well last year to

earn the right to be here,” Clark

said.

Work blessed to begin on

Rolleston Town Centre

A blessing ceremony led by Te Taumutu Rūnanga has prepared the way for work to begin on the

new Rolleston Town Centre.

The ceremony blessed the ground for construction of Te Ara Ātea, the new library, community and

cultural facility, which will be the first stage in the town centre development.

The Council has appointed Armitage Williams Construction Limited as the contractor to build Te

Ara Ātea and Isaac Construction to carry out the transport and infrastructure work for the town

centre, starting with work on Tennyson Street.

The work is expected to begin in November and Te Ara Ātea is expected to be completed in

early 2021.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the projects are an exciting step for the town and the district. Te Ara

Ātea—a name gifted by Te Taumutu Rūnanga which means “the unobstructed trail to the world

and beyond”—is the perfect project to begin the work, he says.

“Te Ara Ātea will be the heart of the new town centre that will take us into the future, creating a

hub that will meet our growing needs and bring communities together.

“It’s appropriate we start with a place designed for all generations to gather, learn and discover.

It’s been good to partner with Te Taumutu and it’s also fitting to start with a project connected with

mana whenua that celebrates our history and looks to the future.”

The town centre will also feature a town square, recreational space, commercial, retail and

hospitality developments.

The roading upgrades will create a low-speed, cycle and pedestrian-friendly streetscape with on

and off-street car parking.

For more information on Te Ara Ātea and the Rolleston Town Centre development, see

selwyn.govt.nz/rolleston-town-centre.

First ever Selwyn Arts Festival set to launch

An extravaganza of art will be celebrated and created during the inaugural Selwyn Arts Festival.

The arts festival, which runs from 11–20 October, will feature demonstrations, workshops, a live art

competition and a guided gallery tour.

District Arts coordinator Becca Bouffandeau says the festival will give people a chance to see a different

perspective on art in the district.

Selwyn has a lot of great art and artists, but often we don’t know them, they’re just a signature in the

corner of a painting. The festival will give people a chance to meet the artists, see them work or make

something fun themselves.”

Opportunities to get up close and personal will begin with a wearable arts show featuring local and

national talent on 12 October and an Art Crawl the next day visiting Selwyn’s three art galleries.

The tour offers visitors a chance to meet artists and

gallery managers and even be the subject of their own

work of art by portrait artist Sam Wakelin.

Mr Wakelin will be drawing free portraits for visitors to

the Lakeland Gallery from 10.30am–3.30pm.

There will be a wide array of workshops throughout

the festival from carving, weaving, fashion and

photography to an opportunity to create with no rules.

The festival will build on Darfield Artweek which will

run throughout the festival, showcasing more than

300 mixed media artworks from 120 New Zealand

artists at the Darfield Recreation Centre.

A full programme of events and where to buy tickets

can be found at selwyn.govt.nz/artsfestival.

Hub days to support local living

New clubs and community group days will offer people a chance to

strengthen their local ties and support a great life in Selwyn.

Three local living hubs, coordinated by the Council, will see community

groups and clubs showcase what they offer, and give people a chance

to get to know others with similar interests in their area, Council

Community Services staff member Sammy Lawson says.

“It’s a great chance to help people connect and make sure they’re

aware of everything that’s on offer. Clubs and community groups

offer people a chance to grow their passions, participate in the

community and get to know others.”

The first hub will be held at the Dunsandel Community Centre on

Saturday 12 October from 2–4pm. Between 10–14 local sports,

health and community groups will attend, joined by the Selwyn

Parenting Network, Babies CanPlay and Plunket. Two child

development experts from Babies CanPlay will be available at all

three hubs to answer any child development questions.

It will be followed by hubs on Saturday 2 November at Darfield

Library, 9am–12pm and Leeston Library, 1.30–4pm.

A local living hub will be held next year in Rolleston.

Traffic and parking and stock

droving – have your say

The Council is consulting on proposed changes to the Traffic and

Parking bylaw and the Stock Droving Bylaw.

The Traffic and Parking Bylaw is an update of the 2009 bylaw.

Proposed changes include allowing residents’ only parking to be

created in case of need, adding electronic scooters to the bylaw

and clarifying the wording for the existing ban on parking cars with

‘for sale’ signs.

The Stock Droving Bylaw is an update to the 2008 bylaw. Proposed

changes including clarifying the rules around temporary fencing,

responsibility for stock in case of an accident or animals found

wandering and building an underpass. It would also require stock

drovers to wear high-visibility vests.

Submissions on the bylaws are open until 18 October. Full details

on the changes, the proposed bylaws and submission forms can be

found at selwyn.govt.nz/your-council/bylaws

On the roads this week

The intersection at Larcombs Road and Main South Road will

be permanently closed on Monday 7 October. Until then the

intersection is restricted to left turning traffic only.

Footpath construction is taking place in Darfield on Kimberley

Road and Snowdon Place. These footpaths will be closed during

the construction.

Faces of Selwyn – Crafting a dream through brewing

The first in a series of stories celebrating the many Faces of Selwyn. To see the full story visit our Faces

of Selwyn exhibition at Lincoln Event Centre or selwyn.govt.nz/facesofselwyn.

At 8.30 on a Sunday morning Gabi Michael is tucked away in her home brewery trying to brew the

perfect beer.

Gabi, from Campo Grande, Brazil, is the sales and marketing manager at Gladfield Malt. She trained as

a vet while working on her father’s farm and moved to New Zealand in 2003.

“I wanted to do something different. I was sort of struggling there with my dad. He was kind of a

conservative man. He had other plans for me, and I had other plans for myself.”

Just two months later she met her husband Doug, who she describes as a typical Kiwi farmer and a

go-getter.

“We looked at each other and kind of, you know, ‘He’s alright, she’s alright’,” she laughs. “I stayed over

and never looked back; got married one year after.”

They created Gladfield Malt on their Dunsandel farm and export

malt to brewers all over the world.

When her three children were young Gabi took an administrative

role, but as they grew up she wanted to do more for the

business and also took up brewing.

“It becomes kind of a drug because you want to make the

best beer ever brewed. You’re always trying to outdo yourself.

It’s contagious. It’s like doing meditation because you’re very

focused on that task.”

Her Brazilian heritage also has a part to play.

“I like the lagers. Because I’m from Brazil I grew up drinking

lagers. The minute I can drink a quenching lager that I brew, I’m

quite proud of it.”

Graduation ceremony

to take place in Chch

• By Devon Bolger

LINCOLN RESIDENTS

will not be seeing university

graduates marching through the

township next year because the

ceremony has been moved to the

Christchurch Town Hall.

Lincoln University acting

vice-chancellor professor Bruce

McKenzie said the key driver for

the decision is the difficulty of

concentrating graduation activities

on campus and the immediate

area during its major rebuild

programme.

“We value our place in the Selwyn

community, and acknowledge

that some may be disappointed

at the decision to move the ceremony,

and these thoughts have

been expressed in correspondence

from the Lincoln Community

Committee,” he said.

At a meeting in May, the

Lincoln Community Committee

said that it would be disappointing

to lose the procession of

graduands through the township

if the ceremony is shifted to the

Christchurch Town Hall.

They decided to send a letter of

support to keep the tradition at

the Lincoln Event Centre to the

university council.

RELOCATED: Lincoln University graduates will not be parading

through the township as part of their graduation ceremony next

year because it has been moved to the Christchurch Town Hall.

Chairwomen Kathryn Claridge

said the committee appreciates

the university considering

their letter and accepts the decision

to hold the 2020 graduation

ceremony in the Christchurch

Town Hall.

“We are encouraged to hear

that the council is motivated to

return graduation to the Lincoln

township when the campus redevelopment

programme is able

to support graduation activities,”

she said.

Lincoln University is planning

$10 million upgrade to the

recreation centre beginning next

month. It is expected to be completed

in February 2021.

Professor McKenzie said the

council is very motivated to

return graduation to the district.

“More specifically the Lincoln

township, once the campus

redevelopment programme

has settled and we can provide

surroundings that create an

experience commensurate with

the expectations of our students

and their families,” he said.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

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

Cabbage white fly likes

your garden greens

BACK IN February 2018 I wrote

an article about the greenhouse

white fly (Trialeurodes

vaporariorum).

Another species regularly

encountered is the cabbage white

fly (Aleyrodes proletella).

Given both species are 1.5mm

long and predominately white

in colour, the best way to

differentiate cabbage white fly is

by the two grey-black marks on

each forewing.

Aleyrodes proletella has an

extensive distribution including

Africa, Europe, Australasia and

California.

Females live for about 50 days

and lay an average of 225 oval

eggs on the under side of leaves.

THe freshly laid eggs are yellow

but darken over a few days.

THe eggs hatch and go through

four instars, the final being a type

of pupal phase.

Host plants include brussels

sprout, kale, califlower, broccoli,

dandelion and sow thistle. They

excrete honey-dew making host

plant sticky and the sugary liquid

is attacked by black sooty mould.

Small wasps called Encarsia

formosa were one of the first

biocontrol agents to be used

and are known to parasitise

the cabbage white fly in New

Zealand.

Vegan food business booming

• By Sophie Cornish

NICHOLAS HARLOW and

Britteny Bryan were rejected by

five banks, almost went bankrupt

and lived in a storage unit for

eight months.

But now it’s all paying off.

The eager entrepreneurs are

pioneers in vegan ready-made

meals, and they are struggling to

keep up with the demand.

Their company Berkano Foods

Ltd is the first of its kind, now

employs six staff, and has meals

in 32 supermarkets nationwide.

They also supply a door-todoor

residential service, using

courier delivery.

Said Mr Harlow, who grew up

in Lincoln: “We’re at our peak at

what we can produce with our

staff, doing everything by hand,

hence why we can’t produce mass

numbers right now. We can’t

go into any more supermarkets.

They want us to supply them

straight into distribution but we

can’t simply produce enough.”

Ninety per cent of their ingredients

are from New Zealandbased

suppliers.

The couple come from humble

beginnings.

“We put all of our cards on the

table,” Mr Harlow said, when deciding

to go into business with only

their savings and no investors.

“At the start when we first

formed this company, our family,

our friends, everyone, had no

idea and couldn’t comprehend

what we were doing,” he said.

“They thought we would go

bankrupt in a couple of months.

But, we pushed on and proved

everyone wrong.”

Five banks declined to give

them loans due to their age and

experience.

“We’re currently working 90 to

100 hour weeks. We haven’t had a

day off this year,” Mr Harlow said.

After waiting seven months to

gain their food licence, the couple

had little money left and decided

to move into the storage unit to

save costs.

They started a PledgeMe page

to crowd-fund the rest of the

money needed and started operating

in April 2017. From there,

they launched the delivery service,

gauging what the demand

was and what customers liked before

approaching supermarkets.

They launched in-store at St

Martins New World in July. The

entire stock sold out in two days.

Now, they’ve landed their first

investor, which has allowed them

to expand into another location,

where production will take place.

In 2016, Miss Bryan was

halfway through her engineering

degree when she realised “in

her heart” she was destined for

something else.

“I was passing my course, but

I wasn’t happy. Then I met Nick

and we became vegan. We saw

a massive gap in the market and

thought, ‘why don’t we do something

about it?’’’

The couple researched the vegan

market in Europe and found

that ready-made vegan meals

were becoming hugely popular

overseas.

Their goal is to become “the

plant-based version of Watties”

with hopes to hit $1 million in

turnover this year and $1 million

in profit by the end of next year.

Some meals include mock

chicken, made from pea protein.

Meals include Thai ‘chicken’

green curry, butter ‘chicken’,

rigatoni bolognese and golden

peanut satay tofu.

Minister snubs

offer of free meal

• By Sophie Cornish

MINISTER FOR Primary

Industries Damien O’Connor

turned down the offer of a

Berkano Foods vegan meal.

The offer came at a

meeting between Mr O’Connor

and Claire Insley from the

Vegan Society of Aotearoa, New

Zealand in Westport in May.

Mr O’Connor had earlier in the

day been at the West Coast NZ

Dairy Forum.

Ms Insley wanted to discuss

the changing landscape of the

agriculture industry and also

took the opportunity to offer Mr

O’Connor a variety of Berkano

meals.

“He flat out refused to try

them. I thought: ‘Come on mate,

I’m not asking you to do a vegan

challenge, just try one meal’,” said

Ms Insley.

“He seemed quite negative

towards plant-based proteins and

instantly said ‘no they’re not!’

when I suggested that plant-based

proteins were the future, though

he did agree that climate change

was an issue that needed

addressing.”

A spokeswoman for Mr

O’Connor told the Selwyn Times

he was simply “not hungry”

after tucking into a “very large

morning tea spread” at the dairy

forum.

SUSTAINABILITY

TRAIL IN

NOVEMBER

Lincoln Envirotown is urging people not to throw away broken

or torn things. This is because a Repair Café will feature in their

Sustainability Trail being run in November. People are asked to

hang on to those household items, appliances, toys, bicycles or

clothing which might be repaired instead of going to landfill and

bring them to the Repair Café for mending or advice.

Those interested in another aspect of Waste Management can

join a Zero Waste Road Trip and learn about New Zealand’s

household recycling methods and destinations.

These are two of a number of events planned for early November

as part of the exciting “Trail”. The Trail has something for

everyone; there are Nature Walks, Workshops, Tours and Visits.

All the trips and events are listed on the accompanying poster.

IT’S TIME FOR THE SPRING FLING

Spring Fling 2019 Poster.indd 1

21/05/19 4:12 PM

For the ninth year running, people will again flock to the

Ellesmere Spring Fling.

The Ellesmere Spring Fling is the crème de crème of fetes.

Held in the most beautiful garden – David Hobbs’ award

winning Broadfield Garden – this is no ordinary affair.

“The Spring Fling is a wonderful day out,” says Janice

Burnett who is Chairperson of Community Care Lincoln.

Whether you are a keen gardener wanting inspiration,

looking for quality items to enjoy or tuck away for Christmas

or simply keen on having a good time, this event promises

plenty.

Wander through the diverse garden and around the superb

gathering of stalls selling everything from fresh produce,

food, drink (wine and beer will be available), artisan arts

and crafts to plants. Find a place to relax under the shade

of a tree or bask in the sun listening to live music while

partaking of a snack, lunch, Devonshire tea or beverage.

David Hobbs, whose garden fills ten acres and is of such

a high standard that it has both national and international

recognition, will once again offer garden tours. You will

have the chance to learn about the plants growing at

Broadfield Garden while garnering some green thumb tips

from the expert himself.

With the focus this year on gardening, you will be inspired

by the marvellous gardens David has created and have the

chance to learn more about gardening with demonstrations

presented by horticultural experts.

“We’re so happy to once again have Intelligro as our

principal sponsor,” says Vanessa Thompson, organiser of

the Spring Fling.

She advises that the Intelligro team will be there to help

with any queries and give people advice about what they

should be doing in their gardens at this time of year.

As sole fundraiser for Community Care Lincoln, the

Ellesmere Spring Fling is fully a volunteer affair.

Special thanks can also be given to the amazing support

of Ballantynes, Lincoln New World, Paper Plus Hornby,

Academy Signs, Susan and Tony Faulks, the Selwyn District

Council and Pub Charity Limited.

“We’re really grateful for the on-going community assistance

we receive and the work done by Lincoln Rotary members

who help in so many ways on the day,” adds Janice.

As usual, Future Leaders from Lincoln University, local

exercise and walking groups and Community Care’s

own staff, board members and volunteers will all be there

helping make it a fun day for all.

The Ellesmere Spring Fling is a country garden experience

not to be topped. It will be held this year, on Sunday, 6th

October from 11am until 4pm at Broadfield Garden, 250

Selwyn Road, Broadfield. Tickets can be purchased prior

to the event for $15 from Ballantynes, New World Lincoln,

Intelligro, Paper Plus Hornby and at Community Care or

online at Eventfinder. Gate sales will be available on the

day at $20 for an adult with children free.

Sweet vegan dessert classics from Asia

Try a vegan take on

some Asian classics

Indonesian crumpets

Makes 20

Ingredients

250ml (1 cup) soy or coconut

milk

7g sachet dried active yeast

1 tsp coconut sugar

300g (2 cups) plain flour

2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp vanilla powder

Olive oil or vegan butter, for

greasing

Suggested toppings:

Coconut yoghurt, vegan butter,

pure maple syrup, fresh berries,

shredded basil leaves, dried

edible flowers, hemp seeds, icing

sugar.

Directions

Gently warm the soy or

coconut milk and 250ml (one

cup) of water in a saucepan

over low heat until just warmed

through (don’t warm the liquid

too much or you will kill your

yeast). Pour the liquid into a

bowl and add the dried yeast

and sugar. Set aside in a warm

place for 15min or until the

surface starts to foam. Sift the

flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt

and vanilla into a large bowl.

Add the yeast mixture and stir to

combine. Place a clean damp tea

towel over the mixing bowl and

set aside for 35-40min or until

the mixture is risen and bubbly.

Heat the oven to 100 deg C

fan-forced. Lightly grease a large

frying pan and set over mediumhigh

heat, then lightly grease a

few egg rings and place them in

the pan.

Stir the mixture again – it

should look like thick, bubbly

pancake batter. Add 60-125ml

(¼ cup-½ cup) more water to

reach the desired consistency if

necessary.

Spoon two to three

tablespoons of the mixture into

each egg ring. Cook for 2min

or until the tops are completely

covered in bubbles and the

batter is dry. Remove the egg

rings, transfer the crumpets

to a heatproof plate and keep

warm in the oven. Repeat with

the remaining mixture to make

about 20 crumpets.

Serve the warm crumpets with

your favourite toppings.

Any leftover crumpets will

keep in an airtight container in

the fridge for two to three days

or in the freezer for up to two

weeks.

Chana masala

Serves 2

Ingredients

2 Tbsp avocado oil

1 onion, diced

400g can whole tomatoes

400g can chickpeas, drained and

rinsed (see tip)

2 tsp coconut sugar

2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon

juice, plus lemon wedges to serve

Sea salt

Chopped coriander leaves, to

serve

Steamed basmati rice or garlic

Naan to serve

Masala curry paste

2-3 long red chillies, roughly

chopped

3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

2 tsp ground cumin

2-3cm piece of ginger, roughly

chopped

1 tsp ground turmeric

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp black peppercorns

1 tsp garam masala

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp brown mustard seeds

Directions

Using a large mortar and

pestle, pound the masala curry

paste ingredients for about

10min or until you have a

smooth paste (alternatively,

you can use a small food

processor.)

Heat a saucepan over medium

heat, add the oil and curry paste

and saute for 30sec.

Add the onion and saute for

2min, then stir through the

tomatoes and chickpeas.

Reduce the heat to low and

simmer for 30min or until

reduced to a thick curry.

Remove the pan from the heat,

stir through the sugar and lemon

juice, then taste and add a little

salt, if necessary.

Sprinkle the chana masala

with coriander and serve with

steamed basmati rice or garlic

naan on the side and lemon

wedges for squeezing over.

Tip: Keep your chickpea liquid

(aquafaba) to make sriracha

mayo or caesar dressing.

each week.” - an Enliven client

Choose to Live Well in

Selwyn with SWELL

Over the next 20 years older people

are likely to make up 25% of NZ’s

population—a proportional increase

that will impact the social, cultural and

health landscape right across Canterbury,

including Selwyn.

Kirstin Dingwall-Okoye of Presbyterian

Support is coordinator for Elder Care

Canterbury (ECC), a group where

representatives from many agencies

come together through forums and focus

groups to integrate and improve health

services for, and the wellbeing of, older

people.

“When it comes to improving the

health and wellbeing of older people, their

living well in the first place plays a critical

role,” says Kirstin. “So partnering with

the Selwyn District Council to host the

SWELL expo is important work for us.”

Through exhibits, demonstrations,

and presentations the SWELL expo will

showcase the many activities and services

available to older people in the Selwyn

district. Kirstin’s hope for SWELL is that

attendees will learn what ageing well can

look like if they access the opportunities

on their doorstep.

Kirstin says that many people claim

to want a long and happy life, and to

experience old age, but in our society

we are bombarded by ageist messages.

Anti-aging products are marketed to us

relentlessly, age-related prejudices can

restrict our opportunities, and even our

own bodies can turn on us—refusing to

yield to our will quite like they used to!

“However, as we age one of our most

empowering assets remains our ability to

choose,” says Kirstin. “In order to make

great choices in our older years, we need

to know what opportunities and new

knowledge will help us to continue living

our best lives. Attending events such as

SWELL can make a real positive difference

for older people and their whānau.”

Are you safe, strong and connected?

When older people have difficulty

getting out and about, our HomeShare

day programmes for small groups, hosted

in a private home, provide a warm,

friendly place to socialise. A main meal

and activities are provided.

Exercise is medicine Brenna Sincock Hearing

At Motus one of our primary goals is

to help New Zealand live active. “Motus”

even means movement! It is well proven

that exercise is important for many facets

of life, whether simply for basic health

benefits – cardiac, mental or physical,

or because you have suffered an injury.

Physiotherapy can assist in many ways

with keeping you moving.

If you have had a recent injury, we can

assist with providing the right treatment

and advice for getting you back on your

feet and on with normal life. If you are

getting older and have those niggly

annoying joints, we can work with you to

develop the tools required to get moving

and stay moving. At our Rolleston clinic

we run a circuit class on Tuesdays and

Thursday which is specifically designed

Wednesday 9 October

10am–3pm

Lincoln Event Centre

for our older population and is a safe

way to exercise in a gym environment

with physiotherapy supervision (Not to

mention it’s a great social outing as well).

Osteoarthritis and Osteoporosis can

both be helped through the correct

exercise – It is common these days for

people to be referred for an exercise

programme to delay the requirement of

joint replacement surgery and in many

cases, it works!

Mental health and Wellbeing are hot

topics in New Zealand currently due to

our poor statistics in these fields. The

endorphins that are released through

exercise can help get us back on track.

We look forward to catching up with

everyone who attend the expo, come over

and talk to us about how we can help you.

your local audiology clinic

Brenna Sincock Hearing has

been operating in their purposebuilt

clinic in Rolleston Square

since June. Brenna loves being

accessible, situated in the heart

of the community.

Being independent means

they can offer a more personal

audiology experience as patients

are able to have continuity of

care and the assurance they will

get the perfect device for them.

SWELL Expo, held at the

Lincoln Events Centre on 9

October, is an exciting event -

the first of its kind to be held

in Selwyn. It promises to be

informative and loads of fun,

plus it is free to attend!

Brenna will be there

from 10am-3pm, so

come along and have

a chat to her. Brenna

is happy to answer any

questions you might have. As a show

special she is offering a packet of Hearing

Aid batteries for $4. She will also have a

camera at the expo so you can look inside

your ears and check what is inside.

Brenna Sincock Hearing specialises

in all the latest hearing aid technology -

Proudly brought to you by:

hearing aids, which are innovative

and easier to use, can be adjusted on

your phone as well as Bluetooth and

rechargeable hearing aids.

Brenna is committed to providing

an essential service to the entire

Selwyn area through holding satellite

clinics in Lincoln, Leeston and

Darfield.

Brenna would like to encourage

anyone who is unsure if they have any

hearing loss or questions and concerns

to pop in and see her at the expo or

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

SELWYN TIMES

A market anticipating spring

While data released recently by Real

Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ)

shows there were 58 less farm sales

(-18.0%) for the three months ended

August 2019 than for the three months

ended August 2018, Canterbury has

shown good steady activity throughout

the region with pleasing prices in the

grazing sector; strong sales for larger

dairy units in mid-Canterbury; and some

activity in the horticultural and forestry

categories.

Overall, there were 265 farm sales in

the three months ended August 2019,

compared to 295 farm sales for the three

months ended July 2019 (-10.2%), and

323 farm sales for the three months ended

August 2018. 1,349 farms were sold in

the year to August 2019, 7.9% fewer than

were sold in the year to August 2018, with

38.2% less dairy farms, 1.1% less grazing

farms, 8.6% less finishing farms and

13.7% less arable farms sold over the same

period.

The median price per hectare for all

farms sold in the three months to August

2019 was $25,346 compared to $19,792

recorded for three months ended August

2018 (+28.1%). The median price per

hectare increased 8.2% compared to July

2019.

The REINZ All Farm Price Index fell

0.3% in the three months to August 2019

compared to the three months to July

2019. Compared to August 2018 the

REINZ All Farm Price Index rose 4.4%.

The REINZ All Farm Price Index adjusts

for differences in farm size, location and

farming type, unlike the median price per

hectare, which does not adjust for these

factors.

Two of the 14 regions recorded an

increase in the number of farm sales for

the three months ended August 2019

compared to the three months ended

August 2018 with the most notable being

Bay of Plenty (+8). Southland recorded

the most substantial decline in sales (-22

sales) followed by Otago (-10 sales).

Compared to the three months ended July

2019, three regions recorded an increase

in sales with the biggest increase being in

Auckland (+5 sales).

Brian Peacocke, Rural Spokesman, at

REINZ says: “Sales volumes confirm the

month of August is generally one of the

quieter periods for the calendar year.

“Volumes are consistent with the previous

year but generally weaker than two years

ago. Mild wet early spring conditions have

favoured the pastoral sector and the lower

south has finally benefitted from sufficient

snow to keep the skiers reasonably happy.”

Streamlined

temporary work

visa process is a

real positive

Federated Farmers is confident the

simpler and streamlined temporary

work visa process announced by the

government recently will deliver for the

regions.

“Our message that workforce and

related problems experienced by the

big cities are not necessarily those

experienced in the provinces has been

taken on board – we congratulate

the government,” Federated Farmers

employment spokesperson Chris Lewis

says.

“The changes will help ensure farmers

and others can more easily employ

migrants when they need them, and when

the options for taking on and training

suitable New Zealanders are exhausted.”

By ditching the ANZSCO skill level

classifications, there is much greater scope

for a migrant worker to achieve career

progression on our farms.

“The changes incentivise farmers to

invest in training and supporting migrant

employees because there’s a greater chance

of keeping them than currently exists.

“We also acknowledge the government

for its compassionate and pragmatic

approach in reinstating the family

entitlement for lower skilled visa holders.

The migrant worker’s children can be

educated here, and their partner can get

an open work visa,” Lewis said.

“It’s a positive for rural communities to

have settled and content families, not just

single men who may well be sending all

their money home to their family.”

The government has indicated the dairy

industry is a likely early target group

for one of the new sector agreements,

containing specific terms and conditions

for recruiting foreign workers.

“Federated Farmers looks forward to

working with other Team Ag partners

and the government to help get this sector

agreement right,” Lewis said.

Calves benefit from gentle

humans interactions

Calves that are stroked by people early in their

life gain weight more quickly than animals that are

not stroked. This can be of commercial value for

farmers, as cows produce more milk if they had a

higher weight gain as calves.

In conventional dairy farming, calves are

separated from their mothers on the day of their

birth. They are then usually kept in single pens for

a period of time before being housed in groups. The

animals can only develop a good relationship with

humans if their caretakers have regular and gentle

interactions with them.

The recent study was published in the journal

Applied Animal Behaviour Science, and as part of

this researchers at the Vetmeduni Vienna studied

104 Holstein calves.

Author Stephanie Lürzel and her colleagues from

the Institute of Animal Husbandry and Animal

Welfare initially studied the calves at a commercial

dairy farm in eastern Germany. Around half of

the animals were stroked three minutes a day for

a period of 14 days after their birth, whereas the

other half was not.

Lürzel and master’s student Charlotte Münsch

stroked the calves on the lower part of the neck.

“In earlier studies our team found out that cows

especially enjoy being stroked at this spot. The

animals’ heart rates even fall during stroking,” says

Lürzel.

About 90 days after their birth, stroked calves

weighed more than the control group. The gentle

contact with humans therefore appears to have a

direct influence on the animals’ weight gain.

A study from the year 2013 shows that cows

that gained weight more quickly before weaning

produce more milk. The daily weight gain of the

stroked calves in our study was about 3 percent

higher than that of the control group. This would

translate into around 50 kg more milk per cow per

year,” Lürzel explains.

The researchers examined the quality of

the human-animal relationship using the socalled

avoidance distance test, which measures

the distance at which a calf avoids a person

approaching it from the front. Animals with less

fear of humans show a lower avoidance distance.

In animals that are afraid of people, the avoidance

distance is higher.

The experiments showed that stroked calves do

not avoid people as quickly as animals from the

control group. The avoidance distance was lower

among the stroked animals.

“Farm animals that experience regular

interactions with people, either with a veterinarian

during a routine check-up or with the farmer

during the milking process, benefit from a good

relationship with humans.”

Rotational grazing

can improve pasture

Set stocking when you have average

growth conditions in spring can work

well for some farmers.

This can work well in terms of lambing,

reduced contamination of lambing

paddocks and subsequent improved

pasture quality for early summer lambs.

Maintaining quality pasture in the

summer is so important in a sheep

system. Several factors can complicate

summer management, which can then

lead to poor quality autumn pasture.

If relaxed or semi set stocking

is employed the result can be a

deterioration in summer pasture quality,

as only the top is grazed off and dead

material builds up in the base of the

pasture and clover levels can start

dropping.

So, how can quality be maintained?

By better matching feed supply and

demand e.g., conserving surpluses

(balage, hay, silage), or introducing more

stock – taking in grazing or buying store

stock, and/or topping.

Quality can also be maintained by

rotationally grazing young stock and

more intense rotational grazing of other

classes of stock that are lower priority at

this time of the year such as ewes or cows.

Other classes of stock, such as cattle,

can also be used to maintain control.

Young cattle can have a positive effect

on quality even if grazed with lambs and

older classes of cattle can still achieve

good growth rates while being grazed

behind lambs in a rotation. An added

benefit is less cross-contamination of

parasite larvae and some vacuuming

affect while enhancing clover growth.

However it pays to remember that

lambs can be very selective and hard on

clover if set-stocked. Maintaining more

clover improves the pasture quality and

captures more free nitrogen. Better lamb

growth rates can lead to an earlier lamb

kill and possibly more autumn-saved

pasture – lessening the reliance on winter

crops and conserved feed.

Better autumn pasture quality can then

pay dividends when used for ewes at

tupping and to better grow out ewe lambs

prior to winter. Remember, with good

management high levels of production

can be being achieved at a low cost.

I help dairy farmers with power

bills that are out of control

By using my measure, reduce, measure, reduce method and adding the savings

directly to the farms bottom line.

Dairy sheds on average use 28% more

power than they should be.

Reduction of energy use adds straight to

the businesses bottom line adding much

needed profit.

Farms not only use too much power but

they also pay too much for it.

Most farmers don’t know how to reduce

their power bill or simply don’t have time to

ring around to get the best deal.

I see power companies telling farmers they

are getting a good deal when they are not.

Boosting up power prices to give incentives

of prompt payment discounts to lure in new

business or keep current clients.

Having a background as a refrigeration

engineer specialising in energy efficiency

I’ve seen it all.

Clients using the same old tricks, reducing

heating times, turning pumps off at times

when they should be running.

All it really leads to is inefficient operation

of the dairy farm.

I use my own frame work I’ve created

over the past 13 years to achieve energy

efficiency for 100’s of clients, and dairy

farms are no different.

I have one main goal. To reduce the

consumption and cost of power a dairy

farmer is paying.

My strategy is to measure, reduce,

remeasure, reduce.

Measure the amount of power you use

Reduce the amount of power you use

Remeasure your new power use

Reduce the cost of the power you do use.

If you can measure it you can manage it.

While a power bill gives you some good

data on what plan you are on and how

many kilowatts you use, it doesn’t give you

the real data hidden in your bill.

Did you know the capacity charge on your

power bill is based on the pole fuse size at

the gate?

Do you know what size it is?

Are you are serious about

reducing your power?

ACT NOW

So how do you know if you are paying the

right amount?

Put simply – You don’t.

Once I have been through my measure,

reduce, measure, the final step is to reduce

the cost. Where I use a national energy

tender and put your power bill out to

tender, where power companies bid to be

your supplier.

power and want to act now give me a call or

Gardening

It’s time to get busy in the garden as Labour

LABOUR WEEKEND has

traditionally been the time for

planting the summer vegetable

garden, in the northern parts

of New Zealand this date can

be brought forward to earlier in

the month, although the long

weekend remains an excellent

guideline for the South Island.

Vegetable garden – It’s a

busy month in the vege garden.

Before planting summer vegetables,

mix in copious amounts

of compost to the existing soil

for your newly-planted seedlings

and sown seed. Vegetable

seedlings to be planted now

include courgettes, cucumbers,

eggplants, peppers, pumpkin and

tomatoes. Vegetable seed to sow

include beans, beetroot, onion,

peas, radish. Check the young

plants regularly for slugs and

snails that seem to arrive earlier

every year. For plants that need

support like tomatoes or beans,

put your support stakes/structures

in place before you plant so

you don’t disturb the roots. Use a

soft tie like old pantyhose so you

don’t damage the stem and invite

in diseases.

Flowering annuals – Winter

plant your seedlings.

be removed to the compost

bin. Preparation for summer

flowering annual beds should

begin in early October. As with

the vegetable garden, deeply dig

compost into the beds. Summer

flowering annuals include

alyssum, asters, cornflowers,

californian poppy, cosmos,

livingstone daisies, lobelia,

marigolds, nemesias, petunias,

portulacas, phlox, salvias, sweet

peas and zinnias – to name

just a few. Check out your local

gardening centre for what’s

available in your area. Also, think

about planting some varieties in

your vegetable garden to help

attract bees and other beneficial

insects to aid pollination.

WARMTH: Roses should be flowering soon, fertiliser should be

applied every four to six weeks.

Fruit trees – Pip and stone

fruit should now have small fruit

forming. Apply fruit tree fertiliser

at six-weekly intervals. This

is especially important

with young trees to encourage,

strong, healthy growth – don’t

forget to water fertiliser in well.

Seminole tangelos are now

ripening and become sweeter

the longer fruit remains on the

tree. Loquats are also ripening

– newer varieties available have

larger fruit with more flesh and

smaller stones.

Berries – Towards the end of

October, early season strawberry

varieties begin to ripen. Check

plants regularly for signs of gray

mould (botrytis). If spotted, remove

all affected leaves and fruit.

Place pea straw, hay or crushed

bark around the strawberry

plants to create a clean ‘bed’ for

the developing strawberries.

Berry fruit like blackberries,

boysenberries, loganberries and

raspberries all are in very active

growth in October. Train new

canes on wire or wooden supports.

You may need to remove

surplus canes where growth is

a little excessive. Mulch with

compost to help suppress weeds

and conserve moisture. Fertilise

with berry fertiliser every five to

six weeks.

Lawns – Lawns will now be in

very active growth and require

regular mowing. Fertilise with

lawn fertiliser and repeat every

four to six weeks. Add lawn

cuttings to the compost bin in

small amounts at a time. It’s also

time for sewing a new lawn or

‘patching’ an existing lawn.

Herb garden – Fresh herbs

such as basil, chives, dill, marjoram,

mint, oregano, parsley,

sage, tarragon, thyme and rosemary

can now be safely planted.

They can be grown successfully

in containers or in the garden,

preferring a hot, free-draining

site. Remember to plant extras

of the herbs you use most often

Roses – In warmer parts of

New Zealand many rose varieties

will be flowering profusely.

A short lawn will transform the backyard

IF YOU ARE planning to have

visitors, there are a few things

you can do quickly to make your

garden look good.

First up there’s the lawn, if you

have one. Resist the temptation

to put off mowing it thinking you

can have one big cutting day. A

good-looking lawn will “hide’’ a

lot of garden sins but to look lush

and carpet-like it needs regular,

light trimming. It is therefore

worthwhile finding the time to

run over it frequently, no matter

how busy you may be.

Equal in impact value is trimming

edges and hedges. If these

look tidy your garden looks tidy

even if it is sporting some weeds.

On the other hand, if they are

ragged, they will set an unruly

tone. As far as the weeds go,

knock them back with weed killer

if that’s your preference. This is

important with weeds growing in

driveways or between patio pavers

but you will need to chip the

dead and near dead ones away in

those areas.

If your time is very limited,

don’t worry about weeds in the

garden unless they are large, if

it’s impact you are after there are

more fruitful things you can do.

Patios, decks and driveways near

the house should get close attention.

Find time to get rid of any

algae and mould and remember

that recoating or repainting can

have a big effect.

If you have bare garden areas,

consider some closely planted

annuals to cover the ground and

give some colour through the hot

weather to come.

See if your budget will stretch

to potted annuals already in

flower for an instant effect or at

least use these for a back row with

cheaper seedlings in are brilliant,

providing attractive and practical

outdoor kitchen areas.

It’s better still, if your time is

limited, to concentrate on filling

some large containers with flowers

or large patio plants. In the

short term, these will have much

more impact for the time invested

and can lift a garden from being

merely okay and orderly. Size and

combined mass count here, so go

for big containers or a number

of medium-sized ones grouped

closely together.

Remember too, the closer they

are to your garden visitors, the

bigger they will seem. This means

it makes sense to concentrate

on pots close to the house, front

door and outdoor living areas for

maximum impact.

Your next area for attention

should be the outdoor living area.

If it has a bare wall, consider adding

a piece of art. If your furniture

is looking tired and you want to

make a big impact for very little

work, consider shouting yourself

some new items.

An alternative, if your budget

needs babying, is to recoat or restain

existing furniture.

While our focus is still on furniture,

another addition that can

have a big impact is adding some

cushions to your outdoor furniture.

Go for plump ones in strong

bright colours or earthy tones

– wishy-washy pinks and blues

definitely won’t do the job here.

Finally, on the day or the day

before you want your garden to

look its best, give your deck or

patio and driveway areas a wash or

sweep so they look pristine. Your

guests will notice your flowers,

neat hedging, lush lawns and

attractive outdoor living areas.

Haul those bulky loads in a Toyota Hiace

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

IF YOU ARE a courier driver in

Canterbury, the chances are you

are probably driving a Toyota

Hiace van.

Sure, there are many other vans

that are in use for that purpose,

but Toyota has captured that

market well and if you take into

account the number that are used

by tradies and companies, New

Zealand has been a lucrative market

for Toyota.

For those who like the square,

boxy shape of Hiace, don’t be

disappointed, there’s no sign of it

ending its lifecycle anytime soon.

However, there’s also a new Hiace

on the market, and the two will

dovetail in the light commercial

segment.

The new van is quite a departure

from what we see as

the traditional Hiace, its nose

protrudes from the front, housing

the engine which sits forward and

under the windscreen line.

However, don’t be fooled, the

engine still sits longitudinally and

drives through the rear wheels,

space is massive, it’s a monster in

terms of presence, it won’t fit into

a standard car park space, and

every time you are leaving the

vehicle you need to be conscious

of how much of the planet you are

claiming. I took the ZX into the

supermarket car park and had to

use four parks so that it wouldn’t

block any access ways.

The ZR on the other hand, is a

lot more manageable; at 5.2m it’s

not quite so selfish, but the benefit

of both variants is that the load

What to ask at

an open home

It’s easy to get carried away when you’re

searching through property listings for the

house of your dreams. But if you’re not careful,

home buying can become a nightmare.

“Buying a property is a complex and

potentially stressful process, not least

because it involves such a scary amount

of money,” says Kevin Lampen-Smith,

chief executive at the Real Estate Agents

Authority (REAA).

“It’s smart to do as much as you can to

reduce the risk of unwelcome surprises or

unexpected costs further down the line.”

In the first instance, Lampen-Smith

recommends drawing up a list of questions

to ask about properties you’re interested in.

“Remember that you can ask the real estate

agent anything you like about the property,”

he says. “They are also required to tell you

everything they know and not withhold

any details.”

If you’re not sure what to ask, here’s a handy

list of questions. Open homes can be busy,

so ask the agent if you can talk on the

phone, or send questions via email.

- Have there been any issues with the

property, such as earthquake damage or

water-tightness?

- Are there any offers on the property,

or have any contracts been cancelled by

potential buyers?

- How long has it been on the market? What

is the seller’s preferred settlement date?

- What maintenance, repairs or

improvements have been carried out? Do

these have permits?

- Is there a Land Information Memorandum

(LIM) available or a building report

prepared by an accredited property

surveyor?

- Is the property well-maintained? What

condition are the roof, piles, wiring, and

plumbing in?

- Is the property insulated? If so, to what

degree (eg walls, underfloor, ceiling)?

- Is there any risk of methamphetamine (P)

contamination?

- If there is a body corporate (usually for

apartments), what does that entail?

- Are there any issues with neighbours or

planned developments?

“If you are seriously considering making an

offer, you will need to do your own research

and seek professional advice. It may well

become your home, so you need to know as

much about it as possible to save unhappy

surprises later,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Knowing the right questions to ask is a

good starting point.”

What is a cross lease property?

“Cross leases are a complicated form

of property ownership in New Zealand

and lots of people find them hard to

understand. In fact, they can be so

troublesome that the Law Commission

has recommended they are abolished,”

says Real Estate Authority chief executive,

Kevin Lampen-Smith.

There are four main types of property

ownership in New Zealand – freehold,

leasehold, unit title and cross lease. In a

cross lease, you own a share of the freehold

title with the other cross leaseholders and

a leasehold interest in the particular area

and building that you occupy.

“It’s important to understand what

buying a cross lease property might

mean for you. Many people don’t do their

due diligence on cross leases and find

themselves in a bit of a mess as a result,

Lampen-Smith says.

Cross leases are common in areas where

there has been a lot of subdividing of

larger sections, or in blocks of two to four

units – the houses may be standalone

homes, or they may be units/flats. In a

cross lease title, property owners share

ownership of the land and the buildings

on it.

If you hold a cross lease, you are a partowner

of every building on the plot of land

– not just the one you occupy – with the

other leaseholders. Each cross leaseholder

is granted what is known as a registered

leasehold estate of the particular area and

building that they occupy. These leases

are usually for 999 years for a nominal

rent, like 10 cents per annum. Each lease

sets out exclusive areas of occupation as

well as any shared or common areas. In

other words, your house or unit is set

apart just for you and your family, but you

have equal access to shared areas (like a

driveway, or garages, or a common garden

area). A cross lease title also includes a

plan of the footprint of the property, called

the flats plan, so you can see if it matches

the property you are looking at.

This form of shared ownership means

that any structural changes to the property

or shared areas must be agreed upon by all

the owners.

“Depending on the terms of the

cross lease, you may need to get the

other owners’ consent for things like

painting the exterior of your property,

building a deck or putting up a fence.

These provisions are usually referred

to as covenants. A covenant may place

restrictions on what you may do with

the unit or building, so it is important to

understand what they mean – this is where

things can get tricky,” Lampen-Smith says.

“For example, let’s say that you own a

cross lease property that you want to sell.

You and your co-owners share driveway

access and some common garages, but you

have a buyer for your property who is only

interested if they can knock down one of

the garages. If the property was freehold,

where there is one sole owner, the new

buyer could do what they liked (within

the limits of the council restrictions).

However, because it’s a cross lease

property, the buyer would have to get all

the other owners to agree (and offer their

consent in writing),” Lampen-Smith says.

“Be careful when making enclosed

additions to a cross-leased property

(for example, adding an extra room or

conservatory). Even if you do get the other

owners’ consent to do it, it will change the

overall floor plan of the property and you

will have to have the flats plan altered so

the change is shown. This will cost money,

but if you don’t do it the land title will not

be accurate and this can cause problems

when you go to sell.”

“I strongly recommend engaging a

lawyer to review the terms of a cross lease

property. Their first step should be to

check that any property you are interested

in matches the one marked on the flats

plan. They will help you unpick all the

conditions of a cross lease agreement,

including finding out what the restrictions

are and how many other owners are

involved. A lawyer will also be able to

advise you if there are particular issues

with the property you are interested in and

find out what changes have been made by

other owners,” says Lampen-Smith.

“A Land Information Memorandum

(LIM) will also show you information

held by the local council about a certain

property and land. It may be worth getting

an independent assessment of a cross

lease property from an inspector who has

professional indemnity insurance and

carries out their work in line with the New

Zealand Standard for Residential Property

“As always, it’s smart to figure out as

process rather than 151 after the fact,” says

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

What size home

do you need?

17

Brick cladding is more affordable.

Tiny houses and smaller homes are

trendy and realistically how many square

metres do you really need? Determining

a suitable size for your new home will be

influenced by the number of bedrooms

needed, whether a separate lounge is

desired, size of garage required and your

budget.

A smaller home is not always more

affordable in terms of the square metre

rate as certain costs are still incurred

such as Council consent fees, and

drainage and wiring from the street.

While going larger does mean more

materials and time constructing the

home, its relative cost may make

it a better buy due to certain parts

of the home like the garage being

more affordable to construct. It is the

additional features, which pushes up the

price.

Savings can be made on a new build

by choosing more affordable quality

fixtures and fittings, which are not super

fashionable or top of the line. The kitchen

and bathrooms in particular can chew up

the dollars. The black sink and tapware

may look good but how long will you be

living with it and will it still be in vogue

in five or ten years’ time. Renovating that

soon, may not be part of your plans.

It is a matter of achieving a balance

between those desired extra features and

making your home special while sticking

to the budget. A pantry may be high on

the list yet does it need a sink and would

shelving instead of cupboards do? A

washbasin in the main toilet may not add

that much extra to the cost and could be

convenient when entertaining, though it

is still another expense. A double vanity

is great if he and she arise at the same

time then fight for space in the bathroom

but it means two sinks to clean and takes

up more space. Fully tiled bathrooms

look glamorous and certainly have the

wow factor yet tiling round the bath and

laying vinyl planking could also make

a statement. If you need storage space

you may consider cupboards inside or a

larger garage with built-in shelving and

attic trusses.

When it comes to cladding, brick is still

the most affordable though this depends

on the type of brick chosen. High end

cedar and schist look great however a

more affordable alternative might be

mingling a brick cladding with linear

board for effect. Hip and gable roofs are

still the most affordable and may be a

suitable substitute for a skillion roof if no

preference is held.

As you finalise your house design,

work with your architectural designer

or building representative to determine

the features you really want and those

which might be excluded, as well as

where changes might be made to make

your new home affordable and practical

for you.

Determine the features

you really want.
