Spring

sales

boost

real estate

market

• By Devon Bolger

THE HOUSING market in

Selwyn is ramping up as spring

takes affect.

Figures from the Real Estate

Institute of New Zealand’s latest

monthly property report show

the volume of houses sold in the

district has increased by 12.6 per

cent in the last month and 23.2

per cent in the last

year.

Harcourts

Lincoln principal

officer James

Twiss said he

thinks it has a lot to

do with the start of

spring.

“We tend to see

an upswing in activity in August

and September as the spring

market increase takes effect,” he

said.

There are also a few other

factors causing the activity boost,

Mr Twiss said.

“There has been a slight

oversupply of speculator homes in

Rolleston that we have been aware

of over the winter months.

from the editor’s desk

WE PUT questions about the planned

quarry near Weedons to local body election

candidates hoping that they get the nod

from voters this weekend (see pages 4-5).

A number responded, others didn’t.

To be fair, sitting councillors and Mayor Sam Broughton’s

hands were tied somewhat because of rules surrounding the

Resource Management Act.

But the quarry is a big election issue and readers need to know

where sitting councillors and candidates wanting to topple them,

stand on the issue, or at least get a feel for where they stand.

But it is a shame not all did reply. One individual took us to

task over asking questions because of the RMA constraints.

Tell that to the those who will be living near the quarry.

Water quality to benefit

from 100,000 new plants at lagoon

• By Devon Bolger

MORE THAN 100,000 plants

are being planted at the newlyconstructed

Ahuriri Lagoon

wetland near Tai Tapu in a bid to

improve biodiversity and water

quality.

It is hoped

the 81,000

aquatic plants

will help to

filter the water

and 48,000 terrestrial

plants

will provide

Steve

Lowndes

habitat to native

birds and

other animals.

The project is being run by the

co-governers of Lake Ellesmere

which consists of the district

council, Environment Canterbury,

Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu,

Christchurch City Council and

Department of Conservation.

Co-chair Steve Lowndes of

ECan said the project was a

massive undertaking but phenomenal.

“The site looks so different

from when we were here in

February to bless the project. It

fits the ECan ethos of moving

from planning to on-the-ground

action, he said.

The Ahuriri Lagoon is situated

between Tai Tapu and Motukarara

and drains into Lake

Ellesmere.

The Whakaora Te Ahuriri

project started in July last year

and is expected to cost $3.5 million.

The plan included the construction

of a wetland, plantings

and the implementation of a

Mātauranga Māori monitoring

programme to gauge the changing

value of the site for iwi.

Engineering and earthworks

were completed last month

marking the construction of the

wetland and the next stage of

planting has begun.

Mr Lowndes said the project

will improve water quality, biodiversity

and mahinga kai values

in the area.

“The wetland is fed by the

Halswell River and that will

improve water quality by

reducing nutrient and sediment

passage and creating an open

water area designed for mahinga

kai.

CLEAN-UP:

More than

100,000 plants

are being

planted at

the newlyconstructed

Ahuriri Lagoon

wetland near

Tai Tapu as

part of a

$3.4 million

restoration

project. ​

“It will also provide a pathway

to improve the water quality of

the associated catchments feeding

Lake Ellesmere.”

The wetland is also being

set up as a demonstration site

to show what can be achieved

with constructed wetlands for

nutrient stripping.

This will require intensive

monitoring and demonstrating

results to landowners in the

catchment, Mr Lowndes said.

The project is expected to be

completed by 2022.

Residents

slow to

cast votes

• By Devon Bolger

ONLY 20 per cent of enrolled

residents have voted so far in the

local body elections.

On Monday, a total of 8067

votes out of a possible 40,301 had

been returned, voting closes on

Saturday.

The return is more than seven

per cent lower than it was at the

same point in the last local body

elections in 2016.

The ward with the most enrolled

voters, Selwyn Central, has

shown the worst voter return of

them all.

There are 16,609 enrolled voters

in the ward but only 2808

have returned their election

papers.

It comes as electionz.com has

said local authorities appear to be

heading for a poor result.

The company manage elections

for 42 of the country’s 67

councils and managing director

Steve Kilpatrick said voting is

currently 50,000 lower than

expected.

Candidates front up with their

Four days out from the October local body elections

Devon Bolger asks district council candidates what

their views are on the controversial planned Fulton

Hogan quarry between Weedons and Templeton

Mayor Sam

Broughton

I understand

the concerns of

local residents

as I would have

similar concerns

if a quarry was

proposed near

to my home. The matter will

be determined by the Resource

Management Act and it is

inappropriate for the mayor to be

either for or against a particular

proposal. To support a good

process I have attended two

public meetings in Templeton

with our staff and ECan staff,

along with representatives from

Christchurch City Council. I

have also spoken with a number

of individuals on the matter. I

have ensured our process and

staff responses are open and

transparent and have encouraged

the appointment of independent

commissioners. I have also

supported a strengthening

of setbacks in the upcoming

District Plan review. Our

continued development as a

district requires access to gravel

through quarries, the location of

the quarries will be determined

through the RMA process.

Bill Woods

(mayoral

candidate)

Most definitely

no. I have made

a submission

against this

application with

the starting

point asking

who in their right mind would

propose an activity such as

this one so close to a built up

area? My submission is based

on the realities of the quarry.

The Selwyn District Plan places

emphasis on reverse sensitivity

plus the monitoring concerns

me. Councils are notorious for

not monitoring, and what will

they do with the hole? They

haven’t done much with the

others yet and there are plenty of

them.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Are you for or against Fulton Hogan’s

proposed quarry between Weedons and Templeton?

Email your views to georgia.oconnor@starmedia.kiwi

APPLICATION: Fulton Hogan wants to establish a new quarry

between Curraghs, Dawsons, Maddisons and Jones Rds.

Deputy

Mayor

Malcolm

Lyall (Springs

Ward)

As this matter

is subject to a

district council

and ECan joint

hearing I am unable to comment

as a Selwyn district councillor.

Cr Nicole

Reid (Selwyn

Central Ward)

As I am

currently on the

Selwyn district

council, I am

unable to make

any comments

on the Fulton Hogan quarry

consent application because

it is currently going through

its due process. The quarrying

activity is being assessed under

the current district and regional

plans formulated under RMA

processes. The Selwyn District

Plan is currently undergoing

review and will be out for formal

consultation next year. Therefore

I would encourage everyone who

has an interest in quarrying rules

or any district plan rules to make

a submission. The new district

plan will come into effect when it

becomes operative, that is, after

the decisions from the hearings,

and any subsequent appeals

processes are completed.

Cr Grant

Miller (Springs

Ward)

This is subject

to a joint

hearing by

commissioners,

therefore, I

am unable to

comment.

No. If I was having to oppose

this consent of course I would

want the councils to decline.

I understand Fulton Hogan

has invested significant funds

into this consent and consider

it commercially viable. A

question I have for Fulton

Hogan is, have they considered

purchasing neighbouring

properties most affected by

their proposal, establishing a

self- imposed buffer zone to

protect their operation from

reverse sensitivity issues from

neighbours located further

afield, as a financial trade-off for

their location being close to the

city thus reducing the journey

time of product delivery? If this

land was not needed in the future

the properties could be on-sold.

In this case if the consent was

granted new owners would be

aware that they were purchasing

near a quarrying operation unlike

those who live there at present.

Riki

Rolleston

(Springs Ward

candidate)

I do not believe

it should be

approved on the

proposed site.

My concerns are

due to the impact on air quality

for properties close by, vehicle

operations and movements, water

use and recycled quality through

seepage, the 40-year time frame,

how stringent the conditions of

the consent application are and the

level of sanctions imposed due to

breaches. The district council and

Environment Canterbury have an

obligation to ensure every step of

the process is fully debated and

not just on behalf of those directly

affected but the district as a whole.

Who knows when the next

mineral exploration application is

coming?

Calvin Payne

(Selwyn

Central Ward

candidate)

My view on

the current

planned quarry

is that our only

opportunity

left to affect the outcome

is the hearing starting on

November 18, 2019. The current

application has been amended

and we should ensure at the

very minimum that these

amendments are implemented. I

will be at the hearing, although

I will be unable to speak, I will

try to ensure the process is

undertaken correctly. We need

to try and guide the hearing to

recommend the best solution

and mitigations for the local

community if it is approved. I

believe for future applications of

this type, as the district council

we need to guide Ecan as the

regional council to review the

planning rules and Regional

Policy Statement. This review

should be able to implement the

consideration of appropriate

mitigations to be taken into

account before an application is

submitted and avoid long and

expensive hearings.

Sophie

McInnes

(Selwyn

Central Ward

candidate)

I made one

of the 329

submissions

against Fulton

Hogan’s proposed Roydon

Quarry near Templeton, and

intend to speak at the hearing.

I believe this site is far too close

to homes and private wells,

however there is currently no

provision for setbacks in NZ law,

nor in our regional and district

plans. We lived around 800m

from the Wheatsheaf Quarry in

Broadfield for several years, and

heard the machinery every day

(in spite of the bund and several

tree lines between us). The dust

coating our windows made it

pointless to clean them, and we

worried about the quality of the

air our children were breathing.

I am keen to seek the inclusion

of setbacks and other restrictions

when the District Plan and

Long Term Plan are reviewed,

as residents should never be put

in this position again. Legally,

Fulton Hogan can apply;

ethically, it’s the wrong location.

Travis Leippi

(Selwyn

Central Ward

candidate)

The proposed

location is not

a suitable fit

for a quarry. I

am not against

the idea of a quarry when it is

located in an environment that

is sparsely populated and proper

setbacks have been put in place.

The land would be better used to

support the population growth

of the Selwyn District. With the

district expanding, we need to

ensure that there is sufficient

land available to accommodate

the anticipated needs for the

next few decades. We need to

be smart about how we manage

the land for future generations.

Activities such as this should

be taking place in an area with

other industrial companies. The

effects can then be managed and

addressed comprehensively.

Simon Lewis

Passion for astronomy is out

Space, planets and

galaxies have interested

Simon Lewis for as long

as he can remember.

The Greendale resident

talks to Devon Bolger

about his passion for

astronomy and work as

an astrophotographer at

the West Melton

observatory

What was it that first

attracted you to astronomy?

Even as a kid, I’ve always

been interested in science and

technology. As a boy, I was

always pulling things apart and

trying to fix them, nothing was

safe in my house. I started to

grow this passion for space and

our universe so this is kind of

a natural progression for me

because I’ve taken that interest

in science and technology and

applied it to astrophotography

which is what I specialise in.

What do you like about

astrophotography?

Astrophotography really

includes a large part of science

and astronomy because you’re

trying to look at different type of

objects using cameras and you

have to try to understand the

LIGHT SHOW: Astrophotographer Simon Lewis took this photo of the southern night sky from

the West Melton observatory.

dynamics of what you’re looking

at, the size and scale of what

you’re looking at, and also the

type of object you’re looking at

and even when it might be visible.

You have to put some effort into

it and that’s the bit I like, there’s

a science behind it. You have to

understand the night sky and

the object your aiming for and

then kind of frame it up from

there to create something that’s

pleasing to the eye. Everybody

that does astrophotography say

it’s very much an art form in its

own right. There’s result that’s

the correct one to aim for, you

just give it the finish that is your

interpretation of the subject and

one which makes you happy.

Is there anything that you

find particularly exciting when

you photograph it?

I like to look at things that

aren’t quite mainstream. There

are definitely major celestial

objects that are commonly

photographed and if you picked

up an astronomy magazine you’d

see pictures of them in there

but I like to photograph more

low key objects that are just as

interesting. They’re not always as

photogenic perhaps but they’re

very interesting in their own

right. For example, there’s an

object near the Southern Cross

called the Corona Australis that

is what’s called a dark nebula,

which is actually dust that is

blocking the light from stars so

if you look at it you can’t actually

see any light through it because

they’re being blocked by the dust.

I quite like taking photographs

of them and think they’re nice

to look at because they’re not

photographed very often.

What is your favourite

constellation?

Not a constellation in

particular, as our southern night

sky is really fantastic there is so

much to look at, so choosing one

as a favourite is really hard. If

you look directly to the south of

us you’ve got Carina which is a

fabulous constellation which has

the Carina Nebula and what’s

called the Homunculus which

is a bubble of gas round a huge

star that’s a 100 times bigger than

ours. It’s a really beautiful area

to photograph. Orion is also a

really amazing constellation to

look at too. It’s in our summer

evening sky and it has a number

of beautiful objects within it to

image. If you look up and to the

right from the stars on the belt

you’ll see the Orion Nebula. It’s

so big and so bright you can see

it without a telescope even by

naked eye as a fuzzy patch, you

can really see it very clearly in a

pair of binoculars.

of this world

Do you think are aliens

out there?

Well, I’m always seeing

strange and weird things

out there at night. There

are always satellites, space

junk and meteors passing

by us, but I think it would

be a very lonely place and

a very, very strange occurrence

if human life was the

only life in the universe.

The problem I think is

actually the distances

involved and as an astronomer

you’re acutely aware

of how far away some of

these objects are. Even in

our own galaxy, which is

around 200,000 light-years

from edge to edge, our

radio signals have only

managed to get around a

hundred light-years distant

from earth so far, so I’m

not surprised we haven’t

‘We know that feeling of loneliness’

•From page 1

“I feel like I’m just an ordinary

mother who is doing something

that I would have liked someone

to do for me in my hour of need.

“It is surreal to think the

community have named me a

hero for it but I’m very honoured

and grateful for the accolade. It

has truly blown me away,” she

said.

The charity currently supplies

around 130 gift bags per month

to the hospital.

Mrs Buckland started the

charity with her friend Joy Reid

around three years ago following

a health scare when her daughter

Arabelle was 18-months-old.

“It came about because Joy and

I had both been in hospital with

sick kids and we knew how lonely

and isolating that can feel and we

wanted to find a way to support

other mums who will go through

that journey too,” she said.

Mrs Buckland took Arabelle to

the GP when she developed what

seemed like a stubborn nappy

rash.

When the doctor had a look,

he told her that the rash looked

like it could be meningitis and

they needed to go to the hospital

immediately.

“My mummy brain just heard

the word meningitis and went

into an absolute frenzy in my

head.”

At the hospital, Arabelle was

struggling to cope.

“When we were there she was

actually feeling fine, it was me

that was a mess. I was crying and

I remember thinking I need some

support and that’s where the

original idea came from.

“I didn’t have any family here.

I had friends I could call to look

after my toddler but not having

that family here, like a lot of people

nowadays don’t, it does just

make it a lot harder,” she said.

Mrs Buckland said their aim

is to put a smile on the face of a

mother or carer.

“Because we know that feeling

Drop in interest rates sparks

first home buyer interest

•From page 1

“These have tended to be in

the $500,000 to $550,000 price

range which is now right in

the wheelhouse for first home

buyers with incentives allowing

them to purchase up to that

price such as welcome home

loans and Kiwisaver incentives

on new built properties.”

Mr Twiss said there was a

drop in interest rates in August

which has peaked the first home

buyer interest and also lead to

increased activity.

The property report also

shows the median house price

in the district has dropped

by two per cent in the last

month.

It now sits at $544,000

compared to $555,000 last

month.

Mr Twiss said this could

be due to the recent housing

oversupply in Rolleston.

“We see prices tending to

flatten rather than increase

when there is an oversupply

which explains part of the

median house price drop.

“In summary, there has been

a slight oversupply in Rolleston

around the price point that first

home buyers are looking and

with interest rates at historic

lows this has created strong

activity in this market without

seeing a spike in prices,” Mr

Twiss said.

The data comes just weeks

after figures from property data

and analytic provider CoreLogic

showed Springston had one the

top 20 fastest moving property

markets in New Zealand over

the past year.

Springston’s turnover rate was

9.1 per cent for the last year.

“People are thinking well, I

could go to Lincoln and pay

an average price of around

$600,000 or go to Rolleston and

pay in the mid-$500,000s or go

to Springston and be close to

both of those hubs yet not have

In Brief

E-SCOOTER TRIAL VOTE

A report into Lime and local

company Lava’s e-scooter

proposals will be tabled at

a district council meeting

this week. In May, district

councillors voted to give

Lime Scooters a trial once

it has worked with council

staff on safety concerns. The

concerns were around speed,

safety, geo-fencing, costs, and

bylaw implications. In the

report, regulatory manager

Billy Charlton said all of the

concerns have been addressed

to a point where a trial can be

considered. At the meeting,

district councillors will vote on

allowing both companies a sixmonth

trial.

Around 120 volunteers were

West Melton speed

indicators on the move

• By Devon Bolger

SPEED INDICATOR devices

will be rotated between different

locations in West Melton in a bid

to improve road safety.

The West Melton Residents

Association owns two of the

devices and has decided to move

them more often than initially

planned.

Chairman Tim Schurr said the

decision was made by the association

to try to improve safety.

“The old locations were based

around all of the construction

happening on the main road

with the new community centre

and now that it’s opened we

think the best practice is moving

the signs around.

“We wanted to put them in

places children would be present

and it would have more of an

impact for them,” he said.

The devices were originally

stationed on West Coast Rd but

have now been moved to

Weedons Ross Rd, one at the

northern approach to West

Melton School, and one at the

southern approach to the West

Melton Domain.

ROVING: one of the speed indicator signs, owned by the West

Melton Residents Association, that will be rotated between

different sites to improve road safety. ​

West Melton residents have

had concerns around road safety

in the township for years.

Last October, safety improvements

at the Weedons Ross Rd

and State Highway 73 intersection

were put on hold by the

NZTA due to funding shortfalls.

NZTA figures show there have

been 11 crashes at the intersection

since 2006.

One was serious and 10 were

minor or did not cause injury.

NZTA director regional

relationships Jim Harland said

the intersection did not meet

the new threshold for funding

under the investment assessment

framework.

A petition has been started in

a bid to have the safety upgrades

brought forward.

It currently has nearly 800

signatures and will be presented

to Parliament by retiring Selwyn

MP Amy Adams.

Rolleston’s Kyra Clarkson and

year 10 students at Villa Maria

create a product and food item to

sell to the college community.

“We had to choose products to

sell, identify the unique selling

point, develop a business plan,

make prototypes and work on

our marketing skills,” said Kyra,

whose group is called Super Mugs.

“We decided to sell reusable

coffee cups, filled with a ready- tobake

Ruby said: “It was tricky to

come up with a product that was

unique and special so that we

could attract lots of customers,

but we’re really happy with our

end product.”

Commerce is an optional subject

for year 10 students at Villa

of accounting, economics

and business studies.

The students will decide on a

charity to donate a portion of

their profits to after the market.

Horse riding trumps kidney disease

• By Devon Bolger

WEST MELTON teenager

Maddie Collins is not letting her

kidney disease get in the way of

her passion for horse riding.

The 15-year-old and her pony

Trig came first in the 16 years

and under dressage division at

the Stringer Trophy equestrian

competition.

Her team, Carnmore Equestrian,

also took home the overall

trophy for their combined efforts.

Maddie’s mother, Sarah

Manson-Collins, said watching

Maddie win was a special moment.

“For me personally, watching

Maddie ride after being in the

hospital for a few days with

shingles and knowing how uncomfortable

and painful they’ve

been, is incredible.

“I do feel very proud that she

can really dig deep and think:

‘I’m not going to let this disease

and this failing kidney define

me, I am going to do what I want

to do’,” she said.

A week out from the Stringers

Trophy competition, Maddie

developed shingles.

my life. Maddie woke me up in

body,’ and I thought oh my god

she has measles.”

Maddie has no immunity to

measles and cannot be vaccinated.

It could be life-threatening

if she caught the disease.

“I bolted out of bed and as

soon as I saw it I knew it was

shingles. We started a course of

medication to get rid of it but

unfortunately, it kept spreading

and we did end up in the hospital

having to get IV treatment to

slow it down,” Mrs Manson-

Collins said.

‘I’m not going to let this

disease and this failing

kidney define me.’

– Maddie Collins

The pair spent the next two

days in the hospital trying to get

rid of the infection.

“Shingles make you tired,

grumpy and sore so it was very

tough.”

The infection cleared up in

time and Maddie was able to

compete in the competition.

“There were so many teams

entered. We had really hoped we

could take the trophy away but

there were a lot of great riders out

there. We are very pleased with

the result.”

Mrs Manson-Collins said her

daughter gets a lot of joy out of

horse riding.

“There will be days at home

where she will be really struggling

with all the medication, all

the hospital visits and the tests

and I can take her riding and you

just see the stress and the worry

fall off of her.

“She is at one with her pony

Trig, it’s just amazing to watch,”

Maddie has been riding for

about four years now and her

skills have begun to outgrow her

27-year-old pony.

“Trig will always be her forever

pony but we are desperately looking

for a younger dressage pony

for her.”

Since being diagnosed with

nephrotic syndrome, a kidney

disease, in 2008, Maddie has

received two different kidneys.

More than $150,000 has been

raised for Maddie’s journey

which has seen her travel both

around the country and internationally

in an attempt to find a

kidney match.

In 2012, a kidney from her

father was rejected by her body.

Maddie’s current kidney was

donated in January last year and

she is currently attempting to

fight off infections in order to

stop her body rejecting it.

Readers respond to

Selwyn Times article on

the district council banning

the roadside advertising of

vehicles for sale.

Eddie Soppet (Abridged):

How about council getting back to

actually doing what it was intended

to do in the first place, handle

the infrastructure of the district

– roads, drainage, waste, etc and

keep out of commerce. I object to

this bylaw on cars displaying a for

sale sign on them.

The fact that it is for sale is

not so much the issue, but the

fact that it is parked probably on

some roadside grass which is not

meant for that purpose.

The car pictured in the photograph

appears to be safely

parked, I can only assume it is

currently registered and warranted

and is not obscuring the

roadway any more than a car

parked without a sign on it, so

where is the problem?

If the car is currently registered

and the WoF is current then it can

be parked on any road legally for

whatever time period is specified

by parking signs – if these are

present, provided it is parked

correctly in accordance with

the existing Traffic Regulations,

Transport Act and council bylaws.

There are already laws in place

regarding the parking and use

of vehicles, use them instead of

making more and I would venture

to suggest that you repeal the

existing bylaw about requiring

council permission to park the

car with a sign on it. Has it ever

been used or enforced?

Graeme Wilson: My view is

this is heavy-handed bureaucracy

gone mad. Assuming the following

is the issue driving this:

It’s hard enough trying to sell a

vehicle for a fair price without

this kind of bylaw being invoked.

There may be the odd case in the

Malvern district where this practice

is abused (obvious car dealers

trying to sell their trade-ins, for

example the Old West Coast

Rd, West Melton area), and this

should be policed by some other

more appropriate bylaw.

Your article made interesting

reading. It was a complete

reversal from what NZTA had

been saying to us as recently as a

fortnight ago.

We had been saying for some

considerable time that the project

was a year behind, but had always

been decried as not understanding

how the work was proceeding.

The entire process has seen

massive overruns and very

poor planning. A number of

engineers have left as have many

skilled workers. I can only

speak about the area around our

property but from speaking with

workers it appears to be across

the board.

In general, the standard of

planning and oversight by the

contractors has been very poor

and at times entirely missing. The

only redeeming factor has been

the work done by the people from

AECOM.

IT WAS MY birthday this week,

which means it’s almost been a

whole year that I’ve been the stayat-home

parent.

And in spite of the fact that this

can be really hard work, it’s no job.

I still wake up in the morning and

am stoked about every coming

day. Even if I’m waking up because

a tiny person with too much energy

is forcing my eyes open.

It’s an absolute privilege to see

my daughter grow and learn while

forming a close bond with her.

Part of her growth that I’ve noticed

a lot of this past week is that

she is becoming one sassy wee

extrovert. She’s at the stage where

she loves being centre of attention

or at the very least, part of the

action. I guess this stage might

never end, but right now she’s got

to try everything and be noticed

while doing it.

At our last couple of Wā Pēpe/

Babytimes, she’s spent the whole

time in the middle of the group,

dancing to the songs and bathing

in the adulation of her fans (the

other parents). My place has been

downgraded to halfheartedly

singing and dancing along so as

not to feel too left out.

into the centre of attention, she’s

just started trying something new

to get an audience.

While visiting a mate in Rangiora,

his two young boys (four

and two) had pulled out an old

guitar to have a jam.

Seeing that the brotherly duo

were the stars of the lounge with

their rendition of the classic

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,

Vittoria went full front row

groupie. Dancing normally was

still not garnering the attention

she craved, so she lifted her shirt

and spun around on the spot.

Now, said mate and I have

long been metal fans and are well

versed with your standard familyunfriendly

groupie show antics,

so this drew raucous laughter

from him and a sort of giggling

cringe from me.

Her outgoing attitude and

willingness to be the star are

endearingly wonderful and I’ll

always encourage them.

Macdonald

back home

and ready

to party

• By Jacob Page

WORLD ENDURO champion

Hamish Macdonald is back

home for a month off to “party”

after a gruelling six-month

campaign in Europe.

The 20-year-old returned to his

family home at West Melton over

the weekend as the FIM 125cc

youth enduro world champion

after overcoming a serious injury

in the middle of the season to

claim the title.

“I’ll have a month off the

bike to catch up with friends

and family and just party for a

while,” he said.

“I was signed on a one-year

deal so I knew it was a case of

make or break for me, which I

guess is a fair bit of pressure but

it has paid off,” he said.

The result means he is likely

to be back competing in Europe

SPORT

next year but nothing has been

confirmed at this stage.

“It’s always been a dream of

mine to be a world champion,”

he said. “It hasn’t always been

easy, it’s been a hard road and

there have been plenty of injuries

but hopefully this isn’t my only

world title.

“To come home as a world

champion is simply amazing.”

Macdonald competed in the

championship two years ago as a

rookie and impressed in finishing

second which saw him sign a

one year deal with Sherco Racing

for 2019.

CELEBRATE: West Melton’s Hamish Macdonald surrounded by family friends and team mates

after his 125cc youth enduro world title win in France which will likely ensure he remains a

professional rider beyond this year.

Macdonald repaid that faith

and has now set himself up for

plenty more opportunities in the

near future.

“In the off-season, I just

trained by myself and because

I was mostly on my own it was

hard to figure out if I was going

fast enough to be a genuine contender

but it all worked out.”

Macdonald has the interesting

distinction of winning a world title

before claiming a national title.

He said of suffering a broken

scapula in his shoulder and his

clavicle in May: “It knocks your

confidence when you’ve been

riding so well. I was off the bike

for over a month and you’d be

surprised how much your fitness

drops away.

“Round five when I got back,

it was tough, I struggled my arse

off that day.”

Macdonald credited his family

for their unwavering support and

always believing in his dream.

He said to have so many

friends and family there in

France with him when he won

made it all the more special even

if the celebratory champagne did

sting his eyes.

Selwyn Times

Have you voted yet? With just a few days left

until voting closes in the local elections, it’s

time to get your votes in.

Votes must be received by the Council by 12 midday on Saturday (12 October).

The best option this week is to drop voting papers in to a Council ballot box. These are available

all week at the Council’s Rolleston offices, at the Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and Rolleston libraries,

Selwyn Aquatic Centre, Lincoln Event Centre and West Melton Community and Recreation Centre

during normal opening hours, and on Saturday up to 12 midday.

Anyone who is eligible to vote but hasn’t received voting papers, or who has moved since

they last enrolled, can apply for a special vote by contacting the Council on 347 2800 or email

electoral.officer@selwyn.govt.nz.

Voters can also apply for a special vote at the Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and Rolleston libraries

during open hours.

“There’s still time to vote, so it would be great to see more people getting their votes in over the

next few days,” says deputy electoral officer Stephen Hill.

“Local elections are an important way for people to have a say on issues that are important in their

local communities, and on how services and facilities are planned and developed for the future.”

Preliminary results for the Selwyn elections are expected to be available late Saturday afternoon,

and will be published on the Council website as soon as they are available.

More information on the 2019 local elections is available on the Council’s elections page at

selwyn.govt.nz/elections.

Faces of Selwyn

“This time we were crying happy tears”

Continuing our series celebrating the Faces of Selwyn. Visit selwyn.govt.nz/facesofselwyn for the full story.

In Ayyam O’Brien’s Rolleston home, neatly arranged wall décor fills the room with the words ‘live’,

‘laugh’ and ‘love.’ On the fridge is a list of meals planned two weeks in advance.

It looks effortlessly organised for the young mother of two. Yet life has not always fallen so neatly into place.

Ayyam was five when her family left Iraq as refugees. Ayyam and an older sister lived in Turkey for two

years travelling by bus to Istanbul to apply for asylum in different countries. They were rejected three times.

“Every time we’d drive back on the bus, we were just crying the entire way, because we were so over

living in Turkey and being so poor.”

On their fourth application, New Zealand accepted the family. “I will never forget that moment. All of us

were up that night just dancing. This time we were crying happy tears.”

Arriving in 2000, she says New Zealand has given her everything she hoped for.

“I feel like my country is New Zealand. I love how it’s accepted me as a person.”

The one thing she missed was the community feel. Something she and husband Chris did not feel living in

Auckland, spending up to four hours a day travelling in the car. “We’re very allergic to traffic,” she says.

That all changed when they were offered the chance to work in Rolleston.

Today, Ayyam coaches her son’s football team, organised a quiz night raising $4,000 for the Prostate

Cancer Foundation and started The Dancing Bellies Selwyn Facebook page. She loves the people, the

lifestyle and vibe of Selwyn.

“It’s that feeling that I feel here that I guess I never knew I had until I moved here,” she says, “I thought,

I actually really do love a community feeling, how everyone’s there for each other”.

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads this week

Last few days for voting in

local elections

Footpath construction is taking place in Darfield on Torlesse Crescent, Coleman

Place and Snowdon Place. These footpaths will be closed during the construction.

Springs Road will be closed to all traffic between Birchs Road and Trents Road 7am

Saturday 12 October to 6pm Sunday 13 October. A detour will be in place.

Protecting our natural heritage

A lone beech tree and a love of the high country led Ian Reed to

protect some of Selwyn’s significant natural heritage.

With Council and Environment Canterbury support, Mr Reed has

protected four Significant Natural Areas (SNAs) on his farming block

in the Malvern Hills.

There are 71 SNAs in Selwyn, which are home to significant native

plants and animals, which the Council helps landowners to identify,

protect and manage.

SNAs are at the heart of efforts to preserve our indigenous

biodiversity, Council Biodiversity coordinator Andy Spanton says.

“It’s like our natural heritage that’s part of our historic landscape.

We’re seeing a change in attitude towards protecting, managing

and restoring our native heritage. We have a tremendous group of

landowners, and our community, who we work with to protect and

manage significant sites.”

Mr Reed says his love of the high country and native plants

converged when a friend told him a lone tree he admired in a gully

was a native beech.

A botanist from the University of Canterbury identified it as a locally

rare black beech and identified a wetland on the property that was

later assessed as an SNA.

With Council funding he fenced the area around the beech seven

years ago and the wetland last year. Both are thriving with Elizabeth

and David Forest planting the area around the beech with about 2000

plants native to upper Selwyn and supplied by Graeme McArthur.

Mr Reed’s biodiversity efforts have also spread to the family farm

near Darfield where he is replacing removed shelter belts with native

bushes, supported by the Canterbury Plains Water Environmental

Management fund.

“I have a son saying, ‘Why don’t we plant pines, we will have shelter

in two years’, and I say ‘Use a longer vision, if you just plant pines

for now you may regret it later. Work in generations and plant with

the long term in mind.’”

Pop up museum celebrates Selwyn’s history

A pop up museum will be helping celebrate Selwyn’s history.

The interactive and engaging museum will be at the Ellesmere A&P Spring Show at the Ellesmere

Showgrounds on Saturday 19 October.

The district’s museums, historic societies and heritage collection holders have come together with

the Council to create the pop up museum with a modern twist as part of the Beca Christchurch

Heritage Festival.

The museum will provide an interactive experience using historic films, online tools and displays to weave

together tales of Selwyn’s heritage and enable visitors to journey through time and across Selwyn.

The museum is a great opportunity to enjoy and discover the things that have made the district what it

is today, District arts coordinator Becca Bouffandeau says.

“It’s been a huge collaborative effort from many different groups to put together something informative

and fun that really speaks to who we are as a district.”

Homebush Stables will also be holding an open day on Sunday 20 October 10am–4pm as part of the

festival. The museum, historic buildings and gardens are on the historic family property of the Deans

family, who were the first European settlers on the Canterbury plains.

Entry to Ellesmere Spring Fair Showgrounds: Adults $15, Children free (under 12 years).

Entry to the Homebush Stables open day is $5, children under 14 free.

Two bronze medals at

nationals for versatile cyclist

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

ROLLESTON COLLEGE cyclist

Nick Rush did not have much of

a break during the first week of

the school holidays.

The 14-year-old competed at

the national secondary schools’

road championships at Palmerston

North, winning two

bronze medals in the under-15

points and road race before

straight to Dunedin for the

national secondary schools’

mountain bike championships

last weekend where he finished

fourth in his age-group.

Nick said he was pleased to

earn two medals at Palmerston

North by using his strategy of

making early attacks during

both races to set a tone.

“Going out fast early is something

that suits me,” he said. “In

the points race, I knew I’d have

to conserve energy eventually,

which I did, and the road course

suited me.’’

The 18km road race was

contested in windy conditions.

Nick said on reflection he

could have earned a higher placing

if it was not for a couple of

tactical errors.

“After I made my attack, I

TALENT: Rolleston College cyclist Nick Rush earned two

bronze medals in the under-15 boys points and road races

at the national secondary schools’ road championships at

Palmerston North last week.

spent 10km on my own which

was too long and at the end I

forgot where the finish line was

so I started sprinting 400m out

instead of 200m, but that is how

things go.

“The road course suited

me overall with its short,

punchy climbs, while the

points race is always tough, as

the only rider from Rolleston

College, so to finish third was

pleasing.”

Nick said his mountain bike

nationals were hampered with a

high heart-rate during the 20km

race in Dunedin.

“My average heart rate for that

hour was 192.

“I just couldn’t get the rest

going downhill that I hoped I

would have, and our race was

delayed which meant I didn’t get

the warm-up I wanted.”

Nick will now set his sights

on the national age-group

mountain bike championships

in Dunedin in January.

SELWYN UNITED managed to

take the spoils at their own South

Island football tournament at

Foster Park over the weekend.

For the second year, the club

hosted the South Island 10th

grade festival with the Selwyn

United Black team winning the

Martin Allen Trophy in a penalty

shootout against FC Nelson.

Both teams were level at 3-3

at full-time and the end of extra

time, with the shootout going

Selwyn United’s way.

South Canterbury Green won

the second-tier Jym Findlay Trophy

while Waimak United won

the 10th grade.

Ground manager Gerard de

Rooy said with 36 teams and

more than 360 kids taking part,

it was one of the largest football

events in the South Island.

Penalty shootout determines

win for Selwyn United

“Saturday’s wet weather made

things interesting but the finals

day on Sunday was wonderful

and everything went smoothly.

He said the festival approach

as opposed to a tournament was

based around trying to strike a

balance between competition

and getting kids involved.

He said with it being a sevena-side

tournament and squads of

10, each player would be involved

more in games and get more

touches on the ball.

“That’s where we are seeing

success, if kids can feel like they

are a part of something they are

more likely to stay in the sport.’’

It is the second year Selwyn

United has run the event, which

drew teams from Nelson, the

West Coast and South Canterbury.

Mr de Rooy said the event

would be back again next year.

New Zealand Siamese Cat Association

Bringing Rolleston’s first cat show

ADVERTISEMENT

Why own a Pedigree Cat?

Please understand we applaud anybody

who gives a forever home to a Domestic

cat, but if you want to own something

really special then pedigree cats should be

considered as an alternative.

The range of breeds’ available start at

Siamese and progress through every size

and colour you could imagine until you arrive

at the giants of cat breeds, the Maine Coons.

Pedigree cats are firstly bred for breed

“Type” this is how the breed must look,

they are then bred for health with great

emphasis being placed on the eradication

of inheritable conditions.

Lastly they are bred for temperament to

make them the perfect companion for all

ages and personal life styles.

Pedigree cats are not an “accident”. Each

mating is carefully planned with accumulated

knowledge of bloodlines and what these

will produce. The parents are tested for

genetic issues; they are fed on good food

and housed in comfort. Our best friend is our

chosen Vet and their staff, many breeders

will say their vet is closer to them than their

Doctor or Bank Manager!

This Show will be predominantly for the

Shorthaired breeds, but we do have classes

for Domestic cats and kittens, should you be

interested in showing your precious pet in

future, please speak with any of the “official”

members at this show to assist in you finding

breeders of the cat of your choice.

Our grateful thanks to the Rolleston Vet Clinic

for your generous support of our club.

Judges from NZ and Australia,

Many breeds of cats and kittens to see,

with a petting area to enjoy.

Photo hunt keeps the past alive

THE ARTS Centre as we know it

has been part of Christchurch’s

landscape for generations –

but this glimpse of one of its

buildings standing alone on a

dusty unpaved road is unfamiliar

to many of us.

From 1877 until the mid-1950s,

the Arts Centre was buzzing

with students, as Canterbury

College (now Canterbury

University) and Christchurch

Girls’ and Boys’ High Schools

used the buildings as a campus at

various times.

The buildings were transferred

to the Arts Centre Trust Board

when Canterbury University

completed its move to Ilam in the

1970s.

Designed by prominent

architect Benjamin Mountfort,

this Gothic Revival tower served

as the Observatory and Biology

HISTORY: This photo of the Observatory, Canterbury College,

circa 1895, was entered in the 2013 Christchurch City Libraries’

Photo Hunt.

building, with a telescope gifted

by James Townsend located in

the Observatory right at the top

when this photo was taken.

The historic Townsend

Telescope, a six-inch refractor

made by Thomas Cooke and

Sons of York, England, in 1864,

was recovered from the rubble of

the Arts Centre tower after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

The Arts Centre and

Canterbury University plan to

restore the building and the

telescope.

The Beca Christchurch

Heritage Festival 2019 starts

on Monday and this year, as

part of the festival, Christchurch

City Libraries will celebrate 10

years of the Christchurch Photo

Hunt.

Christchurch City Libraries

hopes people will dust off their

collections and unearth some

more treasures.

The photo hunt competition

runs from now until October 31.

Your photo hunt photos will be

carefully scanned and preserved

as part of the Christchurch City

Libraries’ collection.

They will then be loaded

onto the Discovery Wall at

everyone can enjoy them.

You can also see them at

There will be heaps of events

SELWYN TIMES

Cooking with what is in season

Lemons and fennel are in

season and they make a

perfect partnership. This

subtle combination works

beautifully on its own

as a light dinner or will

accompany seafood, pork

and lamb

Lemon and fennel risotto

Ingredients

1500ml vegetable stock, hot

2 lemons

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp butter

2 shallots

1 tsp fennel seeds, crushed

3 bulbs fennel, sliced thinly and

tops reserved

400g risotto rice, such as arborio

or carnaroli

200ml dry white wine

100g parmesan cheese, finely

grated

1 cup fennel fronds

½ purple olives, stones removed

50ml olive oil

sea salt and cracked pepper

Directions

Bring the stock to the boil. In a

medium-sized saucepan, heat the

oil and butter, add fennel seeds

and shallots and cook gently

for 3min. Add the sliced fennel

bulbs and cover with a lid and

cook for about 15min until the

fennel has softened and become

sweet and fragrant.

Add the zest of one lemon and

juice from half.

Add the rice and stir well so

the rice gets coated. Cook until

the rice becomes lightly toasted.

Add wine and stir well until it

has been absorbed into the rice.

Ladle the hot stock in one ladle

at a time. Stir well between each

addition so the rice sucks up the

stock and becomes creamy.

Continue until the rice is

tender and creamy and the sauce

around the rice is thick and silky.

If too thick, loosen with a little

more stock, or if too runny cook

out for a little longer. You may or

may not need all the stock.

Adjust the seasoning and

finish by adding half the grated

parmesan and stir to combine.

To make the fennel and olive

dressing, chop the fennel fronds

and add to the olives and zest of

one lemon.

Stir together, add the olive

oil and enough lemon juice to

balance the dressing.

To serve the risotto, spoon

on to your plate, sprinkle over

a little more grated parmesan.

Spoon over a little fennel and

olive dressing.

Save your ripe bananas

to make this sweet after

dinner treat

Banana loaf

Ingredients

140g butter, softened, plus extra

for the tin

140g caster sugar

2 large eggs, beaten

140g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 ripe bananas, mashed

50g icing sugar

Handful dried banana chips, for

decoration

Directions

Heat oven to 180 deg C.

Butter a 900g loaf tin and line

the base and sides with baking

parchment.

Cream 140g softened butter

and 140g caster sugar until light

and fluffy, then slowly add two

beaten large eggs with a little of

the 140g flour.

Fold in the remaining flour,

one tsp baking powder and two

mashed bananas.

Pour into the tin and bake

for about 30min until a skewer

comes out clean.

Cool in the tin for

10min, then remove to a wire

rack.

Mix 50g icing sugar with twothree

tsp water to make a runny

icing.

Drizzle the icing across the top

of the cake and decorate with a

handful of banana chips.

Tips to improve your outdoor living area

TURN THE corner and we are

almost there, the warmer weather

is a sure indication Christmas

is not far away.

Wise are those who plan and

work in advance. Unfortunately,

most of us wait until the last

minute to work on our gardens,

just before the big day arrives.

Often we find the task either

too big or too difficult, hence

a lot of us leave it incomplete

or even worse, don’t start at all.

Well, here are some simple tips

to improve your outdoor living

areas.

You can always let the cobwebs

inside take care of themselves, at

least they catch flies.

One: If your garden is too

much to handle then simplify it.

Look at what plants you have.

Your likes and dislikes. Too big

or too small? Leaf droppers or

sun blockers? The list goes on.

Ascertain what has to go and

get rid of them. You may be

surprised at how simple things

make a big difference.

Two: Remember, often less is

best. At this stage you may need

to seek some professional advice

to help keep in mind the picture

you want to create.

Three: If your garden and

plant maintenance is high and

POPULAR: Producing healthy food is good for the soul and satisfying for the

pocket. (Right) – Use stone as a means of decoration.

you’re finding it hard to cope,

then weed out the problem. For

example, it just maybe time to

realise that the roses are no longer

suitable. Remember you can

always substitute them with an

alternative plant.

Four: Consider building

raised gardens with timber or

garden sleepers. Besides adding

a point of interest, you have the

added benefits of a well drained

garden that is easier to maintain.

You may even consider split

level gardens which will add an

aesthetic value to your piece of

paradise.

Five: Consider plants that

either give off scent or produce

food. This is an increasingly

popular trend, with the benefits

of producing organic fruit and

vegetables being both healthy for

the body, good for the soul and

satisfying for the pocket.

Six: Make your garden as

maintenance-free as possible.

Consider alternatives to bark and

mulch using non-organic product

such as decorative stone and

using a quality non-woven weed

matt for weed control.

Seven: Consider painting or

staining timber fences, retaining

walls and other wooden structures.

This will give a fresh look

and can be colour co-ordinated

to enhance your overall look and

design.

Eight: If the task is too much

or you need some advice call

your professional landscaper for

help. There may be things you

haven’t considered.

dISCOVER

Get your groove

on and dance

• 8 pm start time

• You don’t have to have a partner and you don’t need

to know how to dance

• $10 to drop in and attend or you can buy a monthly

pass for $30 dollars and attend 1 or all 8 classes

• The dance is open to everyone, all shapes and sizes

because anyone can learn how to dance and swing

• All are welcome!

PT 50 dance instructor Patrick Richards

is starting West Coast Swing dance classes

in West Melton.

“Classes are Monday and Wednesday

nights, from 8-9 pm and begin from the 7th

of October. Come one, come all and join us

for West Coast Swing. It’s fun! It’s modern!

It’s stylish and it’s oh-so-smooth,” Patrick

says.

West Coast Swing is a partner dance

with roots in Lindy Hop. It doesn’t matter

if you come as a pair or are a single, all are

welcome to immerse themselves in the fun,

engaging and enjoyable dance technique.

Don’t worry if you think you don’t have

rhythm, Patrick will

teach you the steps so

you can strut your stuff.

What is West Coast Swing?

West Coast Swing is a modern partner

dance that's smooth, stylish, sexy and has a

large emphasis on musical interpretation. It's

the official dance of the American state of

California and is suitable for everyone – even

if you’ve never danced before. It can be danced

to many styles of music including R&B, pop,

Top 40, blues, soul, funk, contemporary, jazz,

rock, Latin and much more.

Don’t worry if you’ve never danced before

or you’ve already been doing some West

Coast Swing, as Patrick will be teaching to

suit your level.

Come on in and join them – the first night

is FREE!

If the city is a better location for you, Patrick also teaches dance Tuesday

nights at 7:30 with Code 03 a dance club located at 407 Tuam Street.

Cats ‘part of the

family’ at this

comfortable cattery

While you are away relaxing on holiday, you can rest

assured your feline fur baby is feeling equally relaxed and

comfortable staying at Ali Cats Cat Inn in Yaldhurst.

The purpose-built cattery is set in country surroundings.

Set in tranquil country surroundings,

this purpose-built cattery is a family-run

business where their ‘guests’ are treated as

part of the family.

“We provide the cats with excellent

care, and hygiene and cleanliness are very

important to us,” says owner Alison, who

runs the cattery with husband Wayne.

“Cats of any age, young or old, are

welcome, and we have a 24-hour vet nurse

available if needed.”

The cattery has 52 individual indoor/

outdoor units ranging from standard to

deluxe, all with underfloor heating to keep

the cats cosy in the cold weather.

All food (not prescription food), bedding

and toys are provided, though owners are

welcome to bring their pet’s favourite toys

and blanket, Alison says.

A cat lover all her life, Alison had always

wanted to run her own cattery, and she

opened Ali Cats Cat Inn in 2002, which

gives her 16 years’ experience. The cattery

was built to New Zealand Cat & Kennel

Association standards, so owners can feel

completely confident in the quality and

safety of the accommodation, as well as the

loving care and attention their pets receive.

For more information on opening

hours and rates, visit the website cattery.

co.nz, and to book accommodation for

your cat or cats, phone 342 1424 or 027

218 3034.

Ali Cats Cat In is located at 202 Old

West Coast Road, Yaldhurst.

Cats can enjoy fresh air and sunshine with their indoor/outdoor units.

• Individual indoor/outdoor units

• Family units available

• Deluxe suites

• Underfloor heating

• Country environment

• Inspections most welcomed

• More than 15 years experience & ownership

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Exquisite style

A new showhome, which just opened in Falcon’s

Landing, promises to impress while affording many

ideas for people wishing to incorporate a little extra

into their new home.

Autoclaved aerated concrete panels with a plaster

finish, Viblock masonry block and stained cedar

timber cladding, complemented by Windsor grey

long-run roofing iron, combine to give Greenland

Homes’ new four bedroom showhome a striking

pose.

This 266.41 square metre home oozes exceptional

quality and offers viewers plenty to consider, from

the 2.55 metre ceilings and 2.7 metre raised box

ceilings in the living areas which give a feeling of

spaciousness, to the many features throughout.

Keen cooks will love the Butler’s pantry where

there is a sink and Bosch gas cooktop. The same

brand appliances are found in the kitchen where two

built-in ovens, an induction hob and a dishwasher

blend perfectly with the sleek cabinetry, generous

engineered stone bench spaces, island fawcett,

double sink insert, and soft close drawers and doors.

There is also an engineered stone benchtop in the

separate laundry.

Wall hung vanities and frameless glass panel and

door showers, feature in the main bathroom and

ensuite where the floors and walls are fully tiled.

There is a back to wall curved bath in the main

bathroom and a generous 1200mm double sink

vanity in the ensuite. The main toilet has a small

vanity for convenience.

With complete separation between the living and

sleeping parts of the home, this design is perfect for

those wanting bedrooms away from the television

or noise of others, making it ideal for shift workers,

young children needing a day nap, light sleepers or

for escaping for a little quiet time.

The distinct bedroom and living wings afford

plenty of shelter outdoors with

the potential for an extralarge

deck. With accessibility

from kitchen/dining and

living areas it is a perfect

entertaining space. There is

also a ‘morning’ outdoor area

with raised vegetable planters

and the kitchen has both

Raised box ceilings are a feature in the living areas.

south/east and north/west views.

A slider from the lounge also leads to the garden.

The sun’s free energy is capitalised on, backed up

with two central heating Fujitsu ducted inverters,

ensuring a warm home throughout the day and

year. There is also a Jayline ultra-low emission wood

burner in the formal lounge/media room, along with

under-tile heating in the bathrooms, gas hot water,

and heated towel rails.

The bedrooms and living floors are covered in

an extra-heavy duty nylon carpet, the bathrooms

have tiled floors and skirting, and there is Laminate

flooring in the entryway, kitchen and scullery.

Throughout, there is a sense of a little extra,

like the coved and rounded corners of the Gib

plasterboard, grooved doors, sliders with Melamine

infill panels, quality Methven tapware, water wall

plumbing for the fridge, alarm system, attic storage,
