Lights for major Rolleston intersection

• By Devon Bolger

A MAJOR intersection in

Rolleston will get traffic lights

by the middle of next year,

The project is expected to cost

$3.2 million.

This includes the cost of design

work for another intersection

upgrade in the township.

District council asset manager

transportation Andrew

Mazey said 11,000 vehicles a

day travel across the intersection

at Lowes Rd and Tennyson

St.

The lights will help to

ease congestion and improve

safety at the intersection, he

said.

“It also has high pedestrian

demand, therefore, signalised

crossing points will be installed

as well. Multiple traffic lanes

UPGRADE: Traffic lights will be installed

at the Lowes Rd and Tennyson St

intersection as part of a project to

improve traffic flow and safety.

will be constructed to allow for

through and turning traffic as

well as on-road cycle lanes and

shared cycle and pedestrian

ways around the intersection,”

he said.

Tai Tapu

liquor store

application

draws 54

objections

• By Devon Bolger

FIFTY-FOUR objections

have been made against an

application for a liquor store in

Tai Tapu.

Gulati Brothers Enterprises Ltd

has applied to the district council

for an off-licence to operate a

liquor store in the vacant Belleza

Boutique building on Christchurch

Akaroa Rd.

If approved, it would operate

Monday-Sunday, 10am-9pm, under

the name of Tai Tapu Liquor

Store.

The police and the Canterbury

District Health Board medical

officer of health are among the

objectors.

Tai Tapu Community

Association is trying to stop the

liquor store getting a licence.

Chairman Gerald Carter said

they are against it for a number of

reasons.

“The key ones being it is

inappropriate to have it in a small

village such as Tai Tapu. The

community is already served by

a hotel close by that has a bottle

store with it and Lincoln is close

by.

I HEAR it was a pretty good night at

Dunsandel on Friday for the annual

Ellesmere rugby awards (pages 23-23).

The good thing about awards nights

is every category is as important as the

next – to those who are getting the awards

anyway.

The awards are a culmination of a season’s work, whether it be

on or off the field.

Darfield flanker Haigh Jebson took out the senior player

award for a great season, capped by being part of Ellesmere’s

winning Southbridge Shield campaign.

Jebson said his Darfield teammates were a big part of his

progress in 2019.

On another rugby note, we profile Bevan Sisson (pages 10-11).

Sisson, who lives in Lincoln, is a busy man juggling Canterbury

B and Burnside.

Show aims to

celebrate Selwyn

THE SELWYN Spring Show on

Saturday is all about celebrating

the district.

The Ellesmere A & P Association

is hosting its 149th annual

event with the theme ‘celebrating

Selwyn’.

“It is about recognising the

special qualities of the Selwyn

District and celebrating all things

country,” association secretary

Vikki Prendergast said.

The event will take place at

the Ellesmere Showgrounds in

Leeston.

The show attracts visitors,

competitors, judges and organisers

from all over the South Island

and this year it will host the final

of the International Mounted

Games for the first time.

Mounted Games is a branch of

equestrian sport in which games

are played by people on ponies up

to a height of 15 hands.

Teams from South Africa,

Australia, Canada, United States,

Pakistan and New Zealand will

compete in the first event of its

kind for the South Island.

Ms Prendergast said they are

honoured to be

hosting the event.

“It will feature

teams from

around the world,

demonstrating

agility, speed and

horsemanship at the

highest level.”

The event is undoubtedly

the best

day in the district,

she said.

“Where else can

you see everything

from chickens to alpacas,

horse riding

to sheep shearing?

You can come and savour the

good food, wine and craft beer

and watch cookery demonstrations

and enjoy the many displays

on show.”

“Watch the best in show jumping

and the wonderful spectacle

that is the Grand Parade. Shop ‘til

you drop, celebrate agriculture

and all our countryside has to

offer, meet friends and make new

ones, bring the family and you’ll

find something for everyone,” Ms

Tim Schmack ​

Prendergast said.

The president of

the Ellesmere A &

P Association for

this year is Tim

Schmack.

He said it is both

an honour and a

privilege to lead the

association for the

149th annual show.

“As a child I grew

up in the Ellesmere

area, attending the

Catholic primary

school and Ellesmere

College in Leeston,

before graduating

with a degree in Farm Management

and Rural Valuation from

Lincoln University.

“After years of entering chooks

and pet lambs in the show as a

child, I took my turn parking

cars for Sudeley Park before

trying my luck at dog trialling. I

was asked to join the association

in 2002 and after roles on various

sub-committees gathering insight

into how the show is run.” Mr

Schmack said,

In Brief

WASTE BYLAW ADOPTED

The district council has voted to

adopt the Waste Management

and Minimisation Bylaw

2019. The key changes relate

to kerbside collection times,

waste management plans

for commercial or industrial

resource and building consents,

as well as events. The new bylaw

changes the times that wheelie

bins, bags and crates need to

be kerbside. From November

4, all Selwyn residents will

need to ensure that all rubbish,

recycling and organics are

out by 6.30am.It also requires

people applying to run an

event or for a commercial or

industrial resource or building

consent to include a plan on

minimising waste as part of the

consent.

FUNDING APPLICATIONS

The Selwyn Community

Fund is closing at the end

of this month. The fund is

designed to support events

and activities that make the

district a great place to live,

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

Budgets approved for upgrades to intersections

•From page 1

The work is a part of a

project to upgrade three major

intersections in Rolleston.

For the project to go ahead,

funding has been transferred

from one of the other upgrades

due to a $2.5 million shortfall.

The roundabout at the intersection

of Rolleston Drive and

Tennyson St was planned to be

removed and replaced with traffic

lights also.

The project was set down in the

district council’s 2018-28 Long

Term Plan and was expected

to be completed in the 2020/21

financial year.

The work was expected to be

completed alongside the Lowes

Rd and Tennyson St upgrade and

an extension of Markham Drive

with the installation of traffic

lights at Dryden Ave.

Mr Mazey said detailed designs

have been completed and

construction cost estimates have

been determined for each of the

projects.

“It became apparent through

detailed construction cost

estimates produced for each

of the projects, that there is an

estimated $2.5 million funding

shortfall if all three projects were

sought to be constructed at the

same time,” he said.

be made safer

• By Devon Bolger

A NUMBER of railway

crossings in the district are

set to be upgraded in a bid

to make them safer.

The crossings at Hoskyns

Rd in Rolleston, Frasers

and Boundary Creek Rds

in Dunsandel and State

Highway One near Selwyn

Creek Rd will be upgraded.

The crossing at Sheats

Rd in Dunsandel will be

closed permanently.

The improvements are a

part of the Safe Network

Programme which focuses

on safety improvements

on high-risk routes across

New Zealand to make

roads more forgiving of

people’s mistakes.

The work is being commissioned

by the New

Zealand Transport Agency

and KiwiRail.

An NZTA spokesperson

said there had been two

serious crashes at the

Frasers Rd crossing in 2012

and 2013.

SH1 at Selwyn had two

serious injury crashes in

2006 and 2007 and there

have been no recorded serious

crashes at the Boundary

Creek and Hoskyns

Rds crossings.

Sheats Road had one serious

injury crash in 2007.

“Crash numbers are not

the only factor in deciding

to improve safety at

a crossing. Other factors

include near misses, the

location of the crossing

relative to the state highway

network, sites where a

long vehicle may be forced

to stop over the tracks,

proximity to corners and

intersections, and speed

limits on the section of

road and nearby roads,”

the spokesperson said.

The reason behind the

permanent closure of the

Sheats Rd crossing is due

to its location and the low

numbers of vehicles that

use it.

“Closing this crossing is

the safest option, particularly

as there is another

crossing in the near vicinity

that is being upgraded.

Because this crossing is so

close to the state highway,

there’s a risk that people

driving cars or trucks

queue over the crossing

while waiting to turn on to

the highway.

“Likewise, there’s also

the risk that drivers wishing

to turn into Sheats

Road, who have to wait for

a train to pass at the crossing,

queue on the highway

itself,” the spokesperson

said.

Upgrades at the Hoskyns

Rd crossing will include

improvements of the existing

pedestrian crossing.

A rubber material that

fills the gap between

the road and the tracks,

STRAIL, will be installed

along with flashing lights,

a bell and automatic gates.

Existing road marking

and signage will also be

refreshed to meet relevant

standards

The work is still in the

design phase and a starting

date is yet to be set.

At the SH1 near Selwyn

Creek Rd crossing, the

rail crossing surface and

road safety barrier will be

replaced.

Road marking and

signage at approaches on

the SH1 will be improved

to meet standards with the

addition of active warning

signs on SH1.

The work is due to begin

in November.

The crossings at Boundary

Creek and Frasers Rds

will both get half arm barriers,

flashing lights and a

bell, these will replace the

current flashing lights and

bell at Boundary Creek Rd.

Road marking and

signage will be improved

at the crossings and active

warning signs linked to the

rail signals are proposed

for short-stacked vehicles

on the roads and vehicles

approaching the side roads

on SH1.

The work at both crossings

is expected to start in

early 2020.

The closure of the

crossing at Sheats Rd will

include removing all surfacing

and signage adjacent

to the crossing and fencing

it off at Sheats Rd.

Signs and road marking

will be adjusted to reflect

the changes and avoid

confusion.

Sheats Rd will also be

converted into a no exit

road with a turning area at

the end.

The crossing is due for

closure next year.

Election 2019 wrap: New

All results are preliminary.

Final results are expected on

Thursday.

THERE WILL be three new

faces around the district council

table at the inaugural meeting

later this month.

Newcomer Shane Epiha has

been elected in the Ellesmere

Ward with 997 votes alongside

returning councillor Murray

Lemon who secured 1832 votes.

Malvern Community Board

chairwoman Jenny Gallagher

has been elected in the Malvern

Ward on 1744 votes, ahead of returning

councillor Bob Mugford

who has also been elected.

Michelle Jones or Sophie

McInnes is set to take the fourth

Selwyn Central Ward spot.

There are currently only seven

votes separating both first-time

candidates with final results being

released on Thursday.

The voter turnout was 41.86

per cent totalling 16,868 votes,

excluding special votes.

That is down from 44.5 per

cent in 2016 and 43.4 per cent in

2013.

Selwyn Central had the lowest

voter turn-out with 37.63 per

cent of the ward’s population

voting. There were

6250 votes cast.

Mrs Gallagher

said she was overwhelmed

to be

elected and is looking

forward to the

challenge.

She said one of

her goals is effective

communication

between the district

council and the

community.

“It’s important

that we are there to

help the ward work

through issues that

they have got and

issues that have with

the council.

“Projects wise,

I haven’t delved

deeply into that at

this stage. I just need

to get my feet on the

ground first,” she

said.

Mr Epiha said

being elected is

great and is looking

forward to getting stuck in to

district council work.

“As soon as I heard the news

from the CEO I thought, well

Shane Epiha ​

Jenny Gallagher

that’s really good I

just want to crack on

to it now.

“It will take some

time for me to process

it and get things

moving along incrementally

so I learn

in the process,” he

said.

Mrs McInnes

said she wants to

continue the development

of local

facilities, businesses,

and infrastructure.

“I also want to

ensure that the

council listens to

the community and

fully considers the

environmental impacts

of decisions.

The coming years

are going to be huge

in terms of applying

climate changerelated

legislation

at a local level,” she

said.

Mrs Jones said she

wants to bring a strong family

and community perspective to

help guide the district.

“I believe there is more work

to do on community

facilities, road

crossings, footpaths

and reserves. I

would like to see

more work done

quicker to drainage

problems we have

in Rolleston and

how we can bring a

maintainable perspective

to council,”

she said.

The three spots on

the district council

are available due to

the bowing out of

previous councillors

Craig Watson, Pat

McEvedy and John

Morten.

Mr Watson

has his sights set

on gaining the

National nomination

for Selwyn to

replace the retiring

Amy Adams.

Mr Morten has

secured a spot on

the Malvern Community

Board and Mr

McEvedy is retiring from local

politics.

The Malvern Community

Sam Broughton

Bill Woods

Board will look quite

different at its inaugural

meeting.

Only two

former members,

Judith Pascoe and

Karen Meares, are

returning to the

five-member

board.

Ken May, John

Morten and Ms

Pascoe have been

elected under the

Hawkins Subdivision.

There were three

positions available in

the subdivision and

they were the only

nominees, therefore

an election was not

required.

Mrs Meares and

Bill Woods will

represent the Tawera

subdivision.

They were also

the only nominees

for the two positions

and an election was

not required.

Mayor Sam Broughton will

keep his position, winning with a

landslide 11,920 votes,

more than 50 per cent higher than his

only rival Bill Woods (4437 votes).

Mr Broughton said he was very

happy with the result and wanted to

thank Selwyn for their support.

Mr Broughton said the district

council had made a lot of progress

over the last three years.

This includes making made major

investments in community infrastructure,

completed earthquake works,

and changing its consultation process

to focus on speaking with residents on

streets rather than in meetings.

He said it will be important the district

council keeps costs in line with

what it has signalled to ratepayers.

Mr Woods said he had stood to give

people an alternative.

Councillors Murray Lemon, Jeff

Bland, Bob Mugford, Grant Miller,

Debra Hasson, Mark Alexander,

Nicole Reid and former Deputy Mayor

Malcolm Lyall have all been re-elected

to their respective wards.

For nearly two years Mr Booth, of

Greendale, has been battling to seek

suspected suicide in 2017.

He decided to run for the CDHB in

a bid to focus on mental health and

too close to call

• By Devon Bolger

TWO SELWYN Central

Ward candidates are waiting

with bated breath for the final

local body election results to

be released.

Preliminary results show

Sophie McInnes currently

holds the fourth district

council spot for the ward but

Michelle Jones is sitting just

seven votes behind her.

Special votes are still to be

counted and the final results

will be released on Thursday.

Mrs McInnes currently sits

on 2306 votes and Mrs Jones

is on 2299.

Calvin Payne isn’t far

behind that with 2202 votes.

Mrs McInnes said it feels

like she is in a holding pattern

waiting to hear the

results.

“It is exciting but I think I

probably would rather know.

I know Michelle will do a

great job if she gets it, it is a

lot harder when you like the

person,” she said.

Progress results were

Sophie McInnes ​

released at 2pm on Saturday

and had Michelle Jones in the

fourth spot.

When preliminary results

were released at 2pm on

Sunday, Mrs McInnes had

jumped ahead.

Said Mrs McInnes: “After

the first results came out

I knew there were a whole

lot of votes that hadn’t been

counted yet and I knew it

could change so I didn’t want

to get too down to start with.’

“And then it did change

and I was thinking oh wow

but then it was only by seven

votes so everything’s just on

hold for now.”

Mrs Jones said she is also

just waiting to hear the final

results.

“I am looking forward to

Thursday. Obviously, the race

is extremely close and you

just can’t call it at this point,”

she said.

“I mean I am hopeful but it

is so close. It is hard not being

thing for the district council

More success for piper

• By Claire Booker

CAMPBELL Wilson’s list

of bagpiping success has

continued.

Last week, the Tai Tapu

16-year-old won the New Zealand

Young Piper of the Year

award for the second year in a

row.

“It feels pretty surreal, all I

wanted to do in Nelson was to

play good tunes, and that was

what I did,” Campbell said.

At the competition held in

Nelson last week, Campbell won

all three under-21 events, the

Piobaireachd, March, Strathspey

and Reel, and the Hornpipe jig.

“It’s certainly one of the most

prestigious awards I’ve won in

New Zealand, for sure,” he said.

In August, Campbell won

the under-18 Piobaireachd and

under-18 March, Strathspey

and Reel events at the Northern

Meeting in Inverness, Scotland.

In the piping world, the annual

Northern Meeting is the

most prestigious competition for

solo pipers around the world.

He made history at the Hastings

Highland Games in April

when he became the youngest

ever winner of the New Zealand

Gold Medal for Piobaireachd.

Campbell said he practices

about five or six hours each week

and usually has a lesson on the

weekend with his father.

He said the hours he practices

when competitions are not in the

near future seem extensive, but

when competitions are on the

horizon, he feels well prepared.

Campbell’s father Greg Wilson

is classified as one of the

top pipers in the world – and

doubles as his tutor.

“He [Greg] has been the

backbone of my piping successes.

Without him I wouldn’t

do nearly as well as I am now,”

Campbell said.

Campbell is now looking on

to when he competes against his

father at the upcoming Labour

Weekend competitions.

“The next steps for me would

be having success in the annual

Labour Weekend competitions

coming up in a couple of weeks.

As my dad always says, you’re

only as good as your next tune,”

he said.

SHOWCASE: The Ellesmere Big Band will perform at the

Cashmere Club as part of the Christchurch Big Band Festival.

Band ready to perform

THE ELLESMERE Big Band

will feature in the pop-up

Christchurch Big Band Festival.

The event will see between 40

to 60 short performances in popup

locations through the streets

of the CBD between October 24

and 28.

The Ellesmere Big Band will

perform at the Cashmere Club

on October 25 as part of the

festival.

They will play alongside the

Ellensburg Big Band from New

Hampshire in the United States.

The band formed in 1902

and in 2004, with the addition

of saxophones and a rhythm

section, it became known as the

Ellesmere Concert Band.

In 2014, the band moved to its

current big band style.

The group rehearse in the

Ellesmere Brass Band Hall which

was built in 1905 and has a long

history of appearances at local

community events.

Band chairman Alexander

Hayward said the group is looking

forward to the performance.

“Our band leader Matt Davis

and the band members are

excited about the chance to share

the occasion with visitors,” he

said.

The Christchurch Big Band

Festival has been running for

over a decade.

Performances will be held

in numerous venues including

the newly reopened James Hay

Theatre.

•Tickets cost $10 through

Eventbrite (+booking fee)

and door sales are available.

Journeys of the Heart

19 October – 19 November 2019

19 October - 19 November 2019

Two years since Clare’s last Little River gallery show,

and much has changed in her life; she has moved south

to Blueskin Bay and fashioned a new existence after the

death of her life partner and fellow artist, Max Podstolski.

Last September Clare travelled to Spain to walk part of

the Camino, raising money for Leukaemia and Blood

Cancer New Zealand, as a way of giving something to

help others coping with a terminally ill loved one and a

way of self-healing.

It was an Main outward Rd, and Little inward River journey | 03 325 for Clare. 1944This time

allowed her to explore whether she

could find a sense of joy again in her work and her life,

and she was able to choose to keep on painting. The

resilience of the human spirit to endure parting and grief,

for Clare, came from the power and beauty of the natural

environment around her.

These works explore Clare’s journey back into painting

and finding a sense of renewal and a path forward that is

not merely surviving but thriving.

The Last Plum Gone Sing Me the Path Forward

“Uplift my singing heart,

as once it was torn asunder.

The wound, now papered over, is not forgotten,

but pulsing with a tenderness for a further chance of life.

With every beat it grows a little stronger, a little lighter.

The cycle of returning to old places, empty now without you,

gives me a knowing that each movement forward,

when facing the storm of solitude,

is a healing.

The call of the light reveals an illuminating path.

Not merely to survive but truly thrive.

Now dance me into a fresh dawn

of hope and possibilities on

these Journeys of the Heart.

I’m over the moon to be alive.”

Volunteer firefighter

honoured for 25 years service

aclandpark.co.nz

0800 ACLAND

Canterbury’s fastest selling

new subdivision

• By Devon Bolger

IT HAS been 25 years but

volunteer firefighter Roger Sheat

is not slowing down anytime

soon.

Since joining the Leeston Volunteer

Fire Brigade in 1994, Mr

Sheat has responded to a number

of memorable calls.

But he said his biggest challenge

to date was the Port Hills

fires in 2017.

He said it was the longest campaign

fire he has been involved

in.

Now, the 59-year-old has

been awarded a gold star to mark

his 25 years of service to the

brigade.

Mr Sheat said he is very proud

to be a member of the Leeston

brigade and Fire and Emergency

NZ.

“The time has just flown by. It

really doesn’t feel like it’s been 25

years,” he said.

The 2010 earthquake is another

memorable call for him, he says

it was one of the busier times

locally.

Mr Sheat also responded to the

February 22, 2011, earthquake in

Christchurch.

“It was just mind-blowing

to see the power of nature and

the damage that series of earthquakes

caused,” he said.

He said there have been a

number of house fires and motor

vehicle crashes that always stay

with him for various reasons.

Mr Sheat works for PGG

Wrightson Seeds as an arable

seeds representative in the

Springs-Ellesmere area.

He said he joined the brigade

after being asked by a neighbour.

“They asked if I would like

to join and I’d stopped playing

competitive sport so it seemed

like a good idea. I also had a

brother in the Dunsandel brigade

so it wasn’t a hard decision.”

He stayed so long because it

is a rewarding organisation to be

involved in.

“You are looked to provide help

to people who are probably having

the worst moment in their

lives whether it be a medical

event, motor vehicle accident or

property fire. We turn up to give

them the best outcome for the

challenges they face.”

Mr Sheat said he plans on

staying with the brigade for the

foreseeable future.

“As long as I’m still able to

contribute I intend to remain but

it really is an organisation

that requires full commitment

to training and all brigade

activities,” he said.

to operate a liquor store at in this empty Tai Tapu building.

‘There is pretty strong sentiment’

“It is very close to a school and

the rubbish is an issue as well.

The environmental impacts are

just something we don’t want

here in Tai Tapu,” he said,

Mr Carter said the committee

will be speaking at the hearing if

it goes ahead.

“I know of numerous others

who are planning to as well.

There is a pretty strong sentiment

against having it here.”

there have been 52 private objections

premier coach talks to

Jacob Page

I hear you are a Cantabrian

who found his way to North

Harbour?

I went up to North Harbour

when I was 17 or 18 and played

rugby for East Coast Bays, I met

my wife (Vanessa) through there

as she played for North Harbour.

I was a hooker and played

division one up there, made

some trial teams but that was my

level and we were there for 10

years.

We came back to Christchurch

on a six-month trial about 18

years ago.

How was your childhood?

I grew up down here and

went to Shirley Boys’ High

School.

Back then, things were a bit

different, I got out of there at 15,

school wasn’t my thing.

I only passed one subject –

English. I never went to the other

exams. I’d realised I probably

wasn’t going to pass (school cert)

so I’d better get a job. I actually

got a job before the end of that

year.

I didn’t tell Mum so I’d get

dressed up in my school gear

walk to the end of the road, get

changed and then I worked for

a guy who was a monumental

mason as a labourer.

At the end of the day he’d

drop me off at the end of the

street and I’d get change back

into my school gear and come

home.

How did the chance to go

north come about?

I got offered a job truck

driving and I ended up playing

rugby as part of that.

North Harbour had Slade

McFarland (former New Zealand

Maori hooker) who would beat

me into the rep teams.

I was going to come home after

a couple of years because I hadn’t

made it in the North Harbour set

up but I had a friend who wanted

me to stay and he offered me a

job at an emporium business

which was great because I was

sick of truck driving by that

point.

When did you hang up the

boots and start to look at

coaching?

It was only when I looked at it

when we came back in the early

2000s, I was in my mid-30s and

we didn’t know anyone so

I opened up the phone book

where we were living in

Avonhead and looked for

the closest rugby club which

happened to be Burnside.

I played one year for them and

it was just to meet some guys and

the team ended up winning.

The next year I was pretty

broken physically and the senior

B team needed a coach so I

thought I’d help out and I did

that for a couple of years and I

realised it was a lot of fun and I

kept doing it a few years.

One year we made a semi-final

and that’s when I started to get a

lot of satisfaction out of it.

Plan to rid Arthur’s Pass

of native plant pests

A PLANNED community event

aims to rid rivers of pest plants

and protect native species in

Arthur’s Pass.

The Protecting Our Rivers

annual event was thought

up by Colleen Philip of ECO

Canterbury in support of the

work done by the Arthur’s Pass

Wildlife Trust.

The idea is to bring together

as many people and groups as

possible to remove lupins, gorse,

broom and sedge.

The weeds make the

environment uninhabitable for

many native plants.

Volunteers from ECO

Canterbury, Environment

Canterbury, North Canterbury

Forest & Bird, Conservation

Volunteers NZ, Sustainable

Ōtautahi Christchurch and the

Department of Conservation

will take part.

It is hoped that by the end of

the season the volunteers will

have covered a total of 250ha.

Environment Canterbury

community partnerships coordinator

Alison Bower will be

among the volunteers.

Said Ms Bower: “Communitybased

organisations like the

Arthur’s Pass Wildlife Trust

and the dedication of the

volunteers that co-ordinate

them, make an incredibly

generous contribution to the

war on weeds in our region.

Without them, our iconic

landscapes would look very

different,” she said.

Ms Bower said the timing of

the working bee will mean that

the volunteers catch the lupins

in their early stage of flowering

which is better than the flowers

already being developed and

seeding.

It is hoped that lupins can

be eradicated from the area

completely.

•The event will run

from November 9 until

November 12 in Arthur’s

Pass. Working bees will

be held on each day from

9.30am-noon and

Plan to change blood spinning rules

But racing industry under pressure to ban it

EXTRACTION: Harness Racing New Zealand has made

changes to the practice of blood spinning.

• By Sophie Cornish

CHANGES HAVE been made to

the rules around blood spinning

in the harness racing industry.

But Harness Racing New

Zealand is refusing to go public

with the revised rules.

The process of blood spinning,

also known as ACS or PRP,

involves collecting blood from the

horse using a needle, processing

it in a laboratory, and then reinjecting

it back into the horse.

In July, The Star reported

HRNZ would review the rules of

the practice after the controversial

process was slammed by industry

veteran David Phillips. He made a

submission on the Special Review

of Racing Integrity Bodies, as part

of Minister for Racing Winston

Peters’ Messara Report.

In the submission, Mr Phillips

said the process is cruel and

called for it to be banned.

Animal welfare groups PETA,

SPCA and SAFE have also raised

concerns about the process and its

effect on animals.

HRNZ says the process is used

as a therapeutic treatment to aid

the healing of horses’ injuries.

HRNZ general manager

corporate services Liz Bishop

said proposed changes to the

rules were approved at an annual

conference at the end of last

month.

“There is a formal process to

go through before these changes

are incorporated into the HRNZ

rules of racing, which will happen

over the next month,” she said.

“The revised rules of racing

will be published on the HRNZ

website, once this process is

completed,” she said.

The rules currently state the

process must be used only when

prescribed by a vet and cannot

be done within one clear day of

racing.

It is understood the new

rules may involve a seven-day

withholding period on the reintroduction

of the extracted

blood.

However, Mr Phillips said

“tinkering with the number of

days (by a day or two or even

week or two) pre-race spun blood

can be used is useless.

“No horses should be prepared

for any racing on a ‘diet’ of spun

blood or EPO or other artificial

enhancers. Racing should not

be about who has the best and

latest ‘vet’ product. It should be

about horses competing on a level

playing field. Why has (HRNZ)

introduced a seven-day ban,

when before it argued vocally a

one-day ban

was sufficient?

What was

it’s evidence,

science and

vet advice to

support a oneday

ban? What

is it’s evidence

to support

a seven-day

ban?”

Mark Purdon

One of the New Zealand’s most

successful stables, Rollestonbased

All Stars Stables, uses the

process.

Its owners Mark Purdon and

Natalie Rasmussen own Equine

Blood Solutions NZ Ltd, which

offers the treatment to customers.

Purdon did not respond when

asked for comment on the new

rules.

Catchpole signs off after

60 years with Hornby

• By Jacob Page

PREBBLETON resident John

Catchpole took a last-minute

ticket to the Canterbury Rugby

Awards night last week and

ended up being named volunteer

of the year.

“My son offered me a ticket

because he said his wife couldn’t

go and I thought it would be a

good night then all of a sudden I

hear my name being called.”

The outgoing Hornby Rugby

Club president said it was quite a

surprise.

“It was an amazing feeling,

totally overwhelming.”

Mr Catchpole, who was born

and raised in Hornby, first joined

the club in 1959 as an under-5

player.

A talented first-five eighth, he

moved through the ranks at the

club and made his senior debut

the year Hornby was promoted

to the top-flight of Christchurch

rugby in 1975.

He played senior rugby until

1983.

He then joined a fourth grade A

side which went unbeaten for five

seasons and a total of 83 games.

He was still playing into his

40s but joined the committee as

club captain in 1998 and became

HONOURED: John Catchpole was named Canterbury Rugby

volunteer of the year.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

president in 2005, a position he

held until the end of this winter.

“The timing was right, it’s been

60 years in the club and I retire

from work at the end of the year

so it just felt right.”

“Hornby has always been home

for me, we moved out of the area

five years ago and went to Prebbleton

but I still work in Hornby.

“My favourite saying is that

we give people a chance to get

involved and participate.

“The club has been a big part

of my life and I’ve made life-long

friends, people I see regularly for

a drink on a Friday night.”

Mr Catchpole, who was made

a life member in 2012, said he

would still be a regular on the

sidelines.

“The great thing is that I’ll be

able to go and watch any games

I want now but I’ll certainly still

be around the place, it’s like a

second home.”

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

invertebrates found at https://www.inaturalist.

org/projects/backyard-biodiversity-bugs-in-my-lincolnsection

Foul-smelling stink bug

THERE ARE several shield

bugs in New Zealand and

one of the smaller species is

the Pittosporum shield bug

(Monteithiella

humeralis) at

10mm long.

THis species

arrived from

Australia and was

first detected here

in New Zealand in

1950 and is now

found throughout the country.

As its common name

suggests, its host is a number of

Pittoporum species including

karo, kohuhu and lemonwood.

THe bug has a straw-like

piercing mouthpart that it uses

to suck sap from trees. They

are also known as stink bugs as

they can release a foul-smelling

defensive chemical from special

glands to deter predators.

THe adults when

overwintering are often

gregarious, probably due to

an aggregation pheromone.

Breeding occurs from October

to late summer and females lay

eggs in a cluster.

Up to 14 blue-green eggs,

1mm in diameter, are laid in a

cluster. The eggs

change to white

and develop an

eye spot before

hatching. Nymphs

to adults can range

in colour from

brown to black,

and younger stages

often have two white or yellow

dots on the abdomen.

Adults develop two pairs of

wings. The species can have

one to three generations per

year depending on the climate.

Another larger (13-17mm),

foul-smelling species is the

brown marmorated stink bug

(Halyomorpha halys).

Many of these have been

intercepted at our ports by MPI

and are a very serious pest. We

certainly do not want them in

New Zealand, so check out the

MPI website if you see a larger

stink bug.

ADVERTORIAL

High Demand for Events

and Workshops on the

“Sustainability Trail”

Registrations to participate in some of the activities on this “trail” have

closed but there are still many interesting things to consider attending

to learn about some environmentally sustainable practices and to have a

good time.

For instance everyone is invited to bring their broken toys, bikes, electrical

appliances, and clothes to the Repair Café taking place at the Rolleston

Community Centre on the afternoon of Saturday 2nd November.

Similarly people can bring their previously loved clothes and replenish their

wardrobes at the Clothes Swap in the Lincoln Event Centre on the evening

of Thursday 14th November.

For those who prefer to get outdoors the “Adventure at the Mahoe” Native

Reserve on the afternoon of Sunday 10th November might appeal, or

the Vege 101 workshop at the Lincoln Community Gardens on Saturday

November 9th”.

There are two “road trips” planned; one to the Ecodrop on Friday 1st

November to learn all about recycling processes. This will be followed by a

lunch in Lincoln to “talk rubbish”. The Final trip of the two week “Trail” will

be to a Sustainable Winery where we will learn about their practices over a

light lunch and a drink. This finale is lunch time Sunday 17th November.

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

details of each and to register for specific activities go to Eventbrite - Selwyn

Sustainability Trail.

Lincoln rider claims third national title

LINCOLN’S LUCY Turner

has proved she definitely is one

of New Zealand’s best young

riders when she won her third

national young rider three-day

eventing title, on Sunday, at

McLeans Island.

In the process, the 20-yearold

was the best performed

pony club rider, and was s

econd in the Springston/

South Island three-day event

accumulator.

She had previously

won the title in 2016

and 2018.

Riding Astek Victor,

Turner (right) put in

a clear round in the

show jumping phase on

Sunday.

“He was amazing,

he just tried so hard

for me and I am just so

happy about that,” she said.

She said winning her third

title was a thrill.

“Gosh, it’s not bad to get

another young rider title under

my belt, the last two I won was

on Carbon so to get a title like

that on my beautiful young

horse is awesome.”

Astek Victor is a horse with a

big future too.

“I was lucky enough to

get him from Sam Taylor

who produced him to 1.05m,

and I have taken him from

there.

“He had a couple of buttons

before I got him. And now yes,

SPORT

he’s got a couple more buttons

added I think.”

As to the immediate future,

Turner is thinking she will

head to the Puhinui threeday

event in December in

Auckland.

“It wouldn’t be bad to

grab that accumulator

prize,” she said.

“Also, this has really

been my first proper

run this season, so it

would be good to do

another big event.”

Turner has one more

chance to win another

young rider title next

year.

Olympian Heelan Tompkins

holds the record of five young

rider titles (1996-2000), so

Turner won’t be able to beat

that, but she’s hoping she

doesn’t stop at three titles.

Results:

CONCENTRATION: Weedons batsman James Richards attempts to drive

Leeston-Southbridge’s Sam Chamberlain at Rangiora’s MainPower Oval, on

Saturday. Weedons won by two runs.

COMMITTED: Ben Chamberlain dives to cut off a single.

Weedons stuns defending champs

• By Jacob Page

IT HAS only taken one week for

a major boilover to take place

in Canterbury Country premier

cricket with Weedons beating

defending 45-over champions

Leeston-Southbridge by two

runs, on Saturday.

It was effectively the opening

round of the premier cricket season

after week one was rainedoff.

Contributions from the topthree

of the Weedons batting

line-up set the platform at

Rangiora’s MainPower Oval.

Openers James Watson (22),

and James Richards (28), put on

an opening stand of 51 in trying

conditions before wicket-keeper/

batsman Todd Inness anchored

the innings with 42.

He found support from Brad

Nightingale, who added 28.

However, when he departed at

124 for four, it sparked a collapse

as Weedons lost their last seven

wickets for 14 runs to be bowled

out for 139.

Leeston-Southbridge opening

bowler Sam Chamberlain was

the chief-destroyer taking 4-21.

Leeston-Southbridge were

in early trouble at 26 for two

before Harry Chamberlain (37),

Tim Gruijters (36) and Ben

Chamberlain (24) steadied the

middle-order.

However, like Weedons,

they got precious few runs from

their lower-order as they lost

WATCHFUL: Weedons’

James Watson plays a shot

carefully.

their last seven wickets for 39

runs to fall two runs short after

being bowled out in the 37th

over.

The match between Darfield

and Oxford was called off due to

wet weather.

Lincoln lost to Cheviot

by seven wickets at Lincoln

Domain.

ATTACK: Sam Wilson plays

through the covers.

SPORT

Lincoln’s total of 111 all out

was chased down by the visitors

inside 19 overs.

Only opener Hugh Paterson’s

33 offered any real resistance for

the hosts.

Southbrook cruised to a

comfortable eight-wicket win

over Sefton at Southbrook

Domain.

SETTLED: Toby Doyle takes a

catch.

Sefton were skittled for just 76

with opening bowler Luan Blom

taking 3-9 from seven overs.

Southbrook cruised to the

target inside 14 overs thanks to

51 from ex-Canterbury player

Shanan Stewart.

Results:

Weedons beat Leeston-Southbridge

by two runs.

Cheviot beat Lincoln by seven

wickets.

Southbrook beat Sefton by 8

wickets.

Green light for

intersection

upgrades

Aerial view showing Markham Way (lower right)

and Dryden Avenue (Upper right).

Two major roading projects in Rolleston are expected to be completed in 2020.

The Council has agreed to bring forward upgrades to the intersection of Lowes Road/Tennyson

Street and to the extension of Markham Way, which will see roading changes to Norman Kirk

Drive and a new intersection created at Dryden Avenue. The projects were scheduled for 2020/21

but are now due to be completed this financial year.

Council Transportation Asset manager Andrew Mazey says 13,000 vehicles a day travel along

the affected area of Rolleston Drive and 11,000 vehicles per day travel across the Lowes Road

intersection to and from Tennyson Street. Lowes Road traffic is expected to increase significantly

once the Southern Motorway interchange at Weedons Road is fully opened.

The upgrades will make traffic flows smoother and prepare the town for growth in the future,

he says.

Both projects will see traffic lights installed along with new lanes and cycleways. This will support

the growing number of Rolleston High School students who cycle through the Lowes Road/

Tennyson Street intersection to and from school, Mr Mazey says.

The Markham Way extension will connect Norman Kirk Drive with Markham Way, removing the

intersection of Norman Kirk Drive and Rolleston Drive and creating a new single intersection between

Rolleston Drive, Markham Way and Dryden Avenue, which will be controlled by traffic lights.

This will help with traffic build-up and make it simpler for Rolleston School pupils by replacing the

volunteer-operated school kea crossing. It will link up with the new Rolleston Town Centre, provide

access to the new Health Hub, when this is built, and improve access to nearby subdivisions.

The Council also agreed to defer planned traffic lights for the Rolleston Drive/Tennyson Street

intersection to secure funding and minimise disruption to traffic. It allocated the funding that had

been budgeted for that project to the Lowes/Road Tennyson Street upgraded.

The Council approved a budget of $3.2 million for the Lowes Road/Tennyson Street upgrade and

$2.6 million for the Dryden Avenue/Markham Way extension.

Fresh start for families

The next step in a fresh start was celebrated at Selwyn’s monthly Citizenship Ceremony.

A group of 29 people from 11 different countries took the oath to become New Zealand citizens. Family

was a key focus for all the new citizens. Many young families were among the group becoming Kiwis

and spoke about moving to New Zealand for a fresh start for their children. Craig Smith, from South

Africa, told the group the timing of the ceremony was special for his family, coming six years to the day

since they moved to New Zealand.

“We came for the kids primarily, but it’s given all of us such a fantastic life. We’re very thankful to be here.”

Sam Ragnarsson, from Iceland, said the day was a highlight after many years of planning and hoping.

“We have been all over the world. My wife is

Chinese and we have lived in America, Japan,

China, but we have really found ourselves here

and settled. It’s so beautiful. The people are

beautiful and we’re thankful to be part of it.”

Atal Safi from Afghanistan said he moved to

New Zealand for love, after his sister, who was

living here, introduced him to a friend who

would soon become his wife. Originally based

in Auckland the family moved to Canterbury

for work and decided to base themselves in

Rolleston to build a house and be close to work.

They are loving the beauty of New Zealand and

the friendliness of the people, he says. “For

me I never thought I would come this far. This

country has been amazing, I’m loving it here.”

One of the important ways that the Council helps to build

strong communities in our district is by supporting groups

and organisations that contribute to community wellbeing

through our Community Fund.

The fund is available for Selwyn based not-for-profit

community groups who are looking to run a project, event

or initiative in the Selwyn district.

Applications for funding close 31 October, apply now at

selwyn.govt.nz/selwyn-community-fund

Projects that have received funding already this year

include the Futures Canterbury Selwyn Hub, Arthur’s Pass

Summer Fête, Selwyn Basketball Club and West Melton

Plunket Group Disco.

To improve efficiency, we’re changing the time that you need to have your wheelie bins, bags and crates

kerbside.

From Monday 4 November, all Selwyn residents will need to ensure that all rubbish, recycling and

organics are out by 6.30am on their collection day.

The change is part of the new Waste Management Bylaw which was passed by Council last week.

The new bylaw will require some event organisers and people applying for a commercial or industrial

resource consent, or building consent to include a waste management plan showing how they are

managing and minimising waste. The Council will be working with industry over the coming year to

develop simple templates to assist this.

Jebson earns Ellesmere

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

DARFIELD FLANKER Haigh

Jebson was named senior

player of the year at the annual

Ellesmere Rugby Awards on

Friday night at the Dunsandel

Community Centre.

Jebson capped a strong club

campaign with being a key member

of Ellesmere’s Southbridge

Shield winning team during the

representative season.

“I still am quite lost for words,

it was shocking,” he said.

“I wasn’t expecting anything

at all.”

Jebson said his goal before the

season was to make the Ellesmere

team and get some minutes off

the bench.

“He ended up being Ellesmere’s

starting on the side of the scrum.

The 22-year-old praised Darfield’s

team culture as a big part

of his success.

“The culture is really good

out here at the moment with the

senior guys really setting a tone,”

he said.

Jebson said he prides himself

on being a good defender who

enjoyed the physicality but he did

try to work on his ball-carrying.

He said he aimed to “bulk-up

over the summer to try to push

for Canterbury B selection in

2020.

Lincoln High School and

Waihora utility back Wil Gualter

was named under-18 player of

the year after making the New

Zealand schools’ team and being

a standout in the UC Championship.

Lincoln prop Isaac Roth was

named under-21 player of the

year after propping the Ellesmere

scrum to a Southbridge Shield

victory over North Canterbury.

Lincoln No 8 Sam Henderson

was named under-19 player of the

year.

Scott McIlroy was named

rugby personality of the year.

Kim Thackwell was recognised

for her long-time commitment

to rugby with both Prebbleton

awards on Friday night. ​

and Ellesmere by being named

volunteer of the year.

Thackwell said she played for

the Prebbleton women’s team

in 1997 but went away only to

return when division one cocaptain

Steve Lees-Goodwin

went from Hornby to Prebbleton

when Hornby could no longer

field a top-flight team in 2011.

“After that I got talked in to being

secretary in a weak moment

over a few gins one night.”

She said it was a huge honour

to win the award

“It’s quite humbling you don’t

get into doing volunteering for

awards, you do it to make a contribution.

“It feels like more of a club

award than anything.

“I can be as bossy as I like but

if you don’t have people around

you willing to look alongside you,

then it doesn’t really work.”

She said with the club’s centenary

and hosting the Coleman

Shield final made it a massive

season.

“I think we all got to the end of

the season and took a big gulp of

air and finally relaxed.”

OUTGOING DARFIELD Rugby

Club president Scott McIlroy is

more used to giving out awards

than receiving them himself.

The 35-year-old was given

personality of the year honour on

Friday night after a big year on

and off the field.

“It was a bloody big shock, I

wasn’t expecting it,” he said.

McIlroy, initially retired from

senior rugby in 2017 to focus on

leading the club but he has kept

the boots on and pulled doubleduty

propping a Darfield senior

scrum that is one of the best in

the district.

McIlroy has played more than

200 games for the senior team and

is a damaging ball-runner even

with a “bad knee” that was meant

to force him into retirement two

seasons ago,

McIlroy scored three tries in

Darfield’s 22-21 Coleman Shield

semifinal win over Springston in

July and also dotted down in the

final where his team lost 16-12

against Southbridge.

McIlroy has committed to another

senior season in 2020.

“We’re getting closer to

that Coleman Shield and the

atmosphere at the club is really

good so I’ll put the boots on again.

Slow start and limited success tests parenting skill

FROM WHAT I can gather

of this parenting game, there

must be a whole lot time spent

doubting your abilities.

Whenever a friend’s child of an

age with Vittoria does some new

thing – talking, toileting, that sort

of thing – I tend to think along

the lines as to whether I should’ve

been doing more to get bubs to

match. Sounds dumb right?

Getting her back into sleeping

in her own bed and transitioning

her to using a potty are my

current goals. The thought that

out there, people I know go

through whole nights without

being woken up by a toddler

rolling onto their head and

snoring in their ears spurs on the

first goal.

Hearing about the elaborate

toilet training schemes of others

drives the second.

Because, lets be real, unless

you’ve done it before, how on

Earth do you train someone to

use the toilet?

The bed thing is pretty self

explanatory, it just takes sufficient

resolve and she’s been happy in

her own bed (in our room still)

for the last couple of nights.

The potty thing? I’m not so

sure. I tried slowly introducing

a potty by getting her to sit on it

before changing her clothes and it

worked amazingly. Once.

She successfully used it on

VITTORIA

& Matt

the first go, but the experience

traumatised her somehow, it was

actually an incredibly civilised

affair with a victory treat. After

four days I’ve only just bribed her

enough to sit on it again. But only

with pants her on.

So, slowly, slowly on that one.

I assume, like I said, I’ve never

trained anyone to use a toilet.

But like a little surprise to

boost my parenting confidence,

I discovered on Monday

that Vittoria is already an

environmentally and communityminded

young lady.

I’d taken her to Latimer Square

to run about in the sun and grass,

with a side order of first stickfighting

lesson.

Right after learning the basics

– stick sizes need to match and it

doesn’t count if you don’t make

“sword sounds” – she stopped,

turned, and rushed off to throw

a stray piece of paper in a nearby

bin.

But one was not enough, she

ran about cleaning up all rubbish

in a wide swathe of the square.

Even two coffee cups at once.

So, chalk that up to

gold-standard parenting and

one-step (sit?) at a time on the

other stuff.

Tasty Bites

Moving veges to centre stage

No longer the side dishes, the back-up dancers or the understudies, vegetables

have earned their place front and centre on the plate as this pizza shows

Broccoli margherita pizzas

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 x quantity broccoli dough (see

following basic recipe)

⅔ cup (50g) finely grated

parmesan

300g cherry tomatoes, torn in

half and squeezed to remove the

seeds

¼ cup (4g) oregano leaves

Extra virgin olive oil, for

drizzling

2 x 125g fresh mozzarella balls,

torn

Basil leaves, to serve

Finely grated parmesan, plus

extra to serve (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 200 deg C.

Line 2cm x 30cm round oven

trays with non-stick baking

paper.

Divide the dough in half and

press on to each tray to make

2cm x 28cm round pizza bases.

Bake for 20min or until firm and

slightly golden.

Sprinkle the bases with

parmesan and top with the

tomatoes and oregano.

Drizzle with a little oil.

Return the pizzas to the oven

and bake for a further 20min or

until golden.

Top warm pizzas with the

mozzarella and sprinkle with

basil and extra parmesan to

serve.

Cook’s notes: You can add

your favourite toppings to this

pizza.

Just avoid anything that might

make the broccoli base turn soft

(such as tomato puree).

It’s best to stick to fresh

tomatoes with the seeds and

some of the juice squeezed out.

Try sprinkling over preroasted

pumpkin, eggplant

(aubergine) or zucchini

(courgette).

To have these pizza bases on

standby for busy days, bake

them for the first 20min, then

cool, wrap and freeze for later

use.

Broccoli dough

Ingredients

600g broccoli florets (about two

heads), roughly chopped (see

cook’s notes)

¾ cup (90g) almond meal

(ground almonds)

½ cup (25g) finely grated

Parmesan

3 eggs

Sea salt and cracked black

pepper

Directions

In small batches, place

the broccoli in a food

processor and process until

finely chopped. Transfer to a

large bowl.

Add the almond meal,

parmesan, eggs, salt and pepper

to the broccoli and mix well to

combine.

Makes one quantity.

Cook’s notes: It’s best if you

don’t add too much of the

broccoli stem to this dough.

A floret with roughly 6-8cm of

stem is great.

Adding extra can make the

dough watery.

You can swap half, or all, of

the broccoli for cauliflower if

you prefer.

Again, just don’t use too much

of the stem.

Big Mercedes SUV tempts with its versatility

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

WHEN I’M picking up an

evaluation car at a dealership, the

first question I usually ask the

sales team is: “What is selling in

the company’s line-up?’’

In the case of Mercedes-Benz,

I was told the GLE sport utility

vehicle is the shaker and mover,

which is the car in this evaluation,

however, supply is problematic,

such is its popularity waiting lists

are looming.

The GLE is all-new and lands

here in two standard variants,

effectively four and six-cylinder,

both diesel. Interestingly, the

3-litre six is an in-line unit, a

departure from the vee-series

engines that Mercedes-Benz has

utilised for the last 10 years or so.

I’ve covered that transition in

recent Mercedes-Benz evaluations,

and it has little relevance to

the 300d this evaluation focuses

on, its 2-litre engine is a traditional

in-line four which sits longitudinally

under the bonnet.

The GLE is a large five or

seven-seat, five-door wagon, it is

almost 5m and weighs in at over

2.2-tonne, consequently, there’s

a lot of vehicle and it offers all of

the credentials you would expect

from something sizeable. It is a

true luxury car and it comes with

a high level of specification that

justifies its $128,200 sticker price.

It also gets a huge safety profile

and that’s no surprise, you don’t

buy Mercedes-Benz without

investing in safety. There are way

too many features to mention

but to say any potential buyer

won’t be disappointed, especially

if you take into account the very

extensive option lists. The test car

was heavily optioned, adding over

$20k to the price.

One standard feature I do very

much like is the wide digital display

panel which extends across

the facia, picture it as two i-Pads

joined together, it’s a touch-type

system, or you can use a mouselike

device on the centre console

to manipulate most of the settings

within the vehicle.

bocharged diesel. While these figures

are impressive in themselves,

take into account the areas where

they are developed – 4200rpm

for power and 1600-2400rpm for

torque. Even though there is a fair

hunk of metal to push, the engine

is not burdened, it works freely

and is energetic when asked to

perform.

Drive is channelled through a

Pirelli PZero tyres. On 22in wheels

they direct positive feedback to the

driver, and along with the optional

air suspension package the GLE

guarantees absorption. One feature

I found very interesting is the

camera-based technology which

reads the road ahead and preloads

the suspension if uneven surfaces

are detected, returning a balanced

ride.

The GLE 300d also has a good

turn of speed, it will scamper to

100km/h in 7.2sec, and will make

a highway overtake in 4.6sec

(80-120km/h), using the paddle

motoring.

The mechanical structure of

the GLE 300 is all quality, the

combination of power and transmission

is fluid and constantly

appropriate, it’s always in the right

ratio delivering decisive throttle

response.

When it came time to take the

evaluation car out on the highway

the weather was against me, it was

wet and freezing. On my usual

inland route snow was down to

low levels. However, these were

perfect conditions for the GLE, its

driveline and safety systems put

you at ease and, of course, had I

ventured to high ground, it would

Learn, experiment and grow

GARDEN BOX is providing

$5000 of premium organic

compost to the wider

Christchurch early childhood

children get to learn, experiment

and grow with their own

As the new owners of Garden

McNabb wanted to give back to

their community while encouraging

children to enjoy their own

gardens.

They feel getting kids involved

with planting, caring and eating

vegetables at a young age is a

great way for them to appreciate

where food comes from and

form great life habits.

Last year over 50 schools and

early childhood centres received

ie staff, board member or PTA

member, can complete a form

Get outside and go potty

GARDENING IN pots is a

spectacularly rewarding and low

labour hobby.

Instead of battling the elements,

treating tired old soil,

weeding and digging frantically,

you simply tip the prepared

perfect potting mix into the

container, follow it up with the

plants, water and wait. It’s hard

to go wrong.

You just move the pot around

until you’ve found the perfect

sunny or shady spot, without

disturbing the root system,

because a container garden is

portable.

You can move it about your

home, patio or garden to fill

bare spots at any time of year.

And best of all, when you move

house, you don’t have to leave

your cherished garden behind –

they all shift with the furniture.

Furthermore, container gardens

look great anywhere – as

hanging baskets on terraces and

pergolas, half round containers

spilling colour down a wall or

fence, or simply sitting on paved

areas, decks and steps. For best

effect, plan your planter by

height as well as colour.

You can mix annuals with

a central perennial until the

perennial gets well established,

and in the meantime, enjoy a

miniature garden rather than a

miniature plant surrounded by

bare earth.

You can dispense with the annuals

when the perennial takes

over.

Container gardeners can

pretty much give up weeding

altogether. But you don’t need

to do a bit of soil maintenance

from time to time, because the

plants aren’t in a self renewing

envi- ronment – they’re relying

on you to give them nutrition

and moisture.

Potted plants can dry out

fast. Some will need watering

up to twice a day in the hotter

months, particularly those in

terracotta and other porous

pots.

Celebrating Selwyn is the theme of this

year’s Ellesmere A & P Association Show

being held on Saturday October 19 at the

Ellesmere Show Grounds in Leeston. The

149th Selwyn Spring Show is the largest one

day show in New Zealand and encourages

people to come together to celebrate Selwyn

through their success in art, music, culture,

business and agriculture.

As one of the most truly diverse spring

shows in New Zealand, the show attracts

visitors, competitors, judges and organisers

from throughout the South Island.

This year the Association is delighted to

host the final of the International Mounted

Games. From 9.30am crowds will be treated

to riders vaulting on and off ponies at high

speeds, hitting targets at a gallop, along

with high speed changeovers of equipment

between team members representing New

Zealand, Australia, South Africa and the

USA. The race finals will take place at 1pm.

Sheep entries have stayed strong this year

with record entries in the Dorper section

as the Selwyn Spring Show is their feature

show of the year drawing exhibitors from

all over the Canterbury region. Other well

supported sections include the Corriedale,

Southdown, Poll Dorset and black and

coloured sheep.

This year sees the return of both dairy

and beef cattle. In the dairy section

numbers of entries are down due to M

Bovis but there will be a selection of

Ayrshire dairy cows. Both the alpaca and

dairy goat sections are displaying a large

number of entries which is great for the

future of the Selwyn Spring Show.

Once again the sheep

dog trials are one of the

main attractions at the

show. A highlight will be

the return of the current

New Zealand test

captain Andy Clark and

his dog Girl who have

to defend the Wayleggo

cup against Australia in

late November. There

will also be some new

younger faces to keep

the older competitors

honest.

Prestigious Location & Affordable!

Built to the most exacting specifications and standards

by the highly-regarded builder, this brand new home is

superbly positioned in the prestigious new Verdeco Park

subdivision.

Inside, three bedrooms are complemented by two

bathrooms (including an ensuite off the master) and a wellappointed

modern kitchen. The open-plan living areas offer

plenty of versatility; a heat pump guarantees year-round

contentment, and excellent indoor/outdoor flow promotes

easy access outside.

The private backyard is an added bonus, with plenty of

space for growing families and their pets.

Of course, the icing on the cake is the location. Surrounded

by other quality (soon to be built) homes in a community

which is both friendly and safe, the property is located a

short distance to a bevy of shops, cafes and key arterial

routes.

With their sights set on their next project our vendors

are determined to sell, and they’re prepared to ‘meet the

market’ to do so. That motivation, combined with the

enticing nature of the home itself, ensures interest will be

high, and immediate action is advised. Contact me today for

further details.

[Edition datE]

Marketing your property –

what does it mean?

Marketing a property is more than presentation and advertising.

Conceptually, marketing is identifying

what prospective buyers are looking for

then providing this. For example, larger

homes and sections may appeal more

to families. Young couples starting out,

generally have tight budgets leading

them to smaller properties, while older

people may be looking to downsize.

Brand new has a particular appeal

however there will always be a market for

established homes. Having a picture in

your mind of the type of buyer will help

in determining the features to emphasise.

If repairs and maintenance need to be

carried out before putting the property

on the market, seek the advice of a real

estate agent. They can advise on what

tasks are worth completing and what

might be unnecessary expense.

Installing a new kitchen or changing

the carpet may lift the house but will

the expense be recouped in the sale

price? On the other hand, modernising

an outdated kitchen or bathroom could

make a huge difference to the look of

the place. Avoid going overboard unless

the capital value of properties in the area

justifies this.

Real estate agents are in contact with

prospective buyers so aware of what they

are looking for. Draw on their expertise

and advice to help make the most of the

selling opportunity.

Establishing a relevant and fair price

for a property is important. Most

agents calculate this based on the price

properties in the area have sold for, and

what a particular property has to offer.

A unique or exceptional property may

justify a higher price, though run-down

properties can gain more than they

appear to merit. This might be due to the

area or other factors that suggest a good

investment.

When promoting a property, mix it up

and be creative so your property stands

out from the rest. TradeMe is a must;

checked by most people looking to buy.

Present the features the property offers as

benefits to potential buyers.

Erect a sign outside the property.

People stop and look at photographs and

this might spark sufficient interest for

them to visit an open home. Spending

a fortune on massive advertising

campaigns in every media might seem a

way to attract potential buyers but may

be an unnecessary expense without the

return. A better philosophy could be a

little often. This will depend on the value

of the property, your budget and how

best to reach target buyers.

Buyer perception is also significant.

For example, properties that sit for a

while can become stale. Resting the

property by taking it off the market for

a short time, then relisting perhaps in

spring or when sales in the area appear

to lift a little, can make a difference.

However, if a property does not sell

immediately there is no need for panic or

dropping the price. It may simply be that

the right buyer has not yet come along. If

the mix is right your property will sell.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

The triumph of light

The people of Selwyn comprise a multi-culturally diverse community,

where friendships form and opportunities abound for chances to

learn about and enjoy the richness of other countries. The upcoming

Diwali Festival will be one such occasion.

A Hindu festival of lights, Diwali is organised

by the Indian Social and Cultural Club (ISCC).

This established group within Canterbury’s Indian

community arrange Indian cultural events across

the year.

A free festival for all ages, Diwali blends

traditional and contemporary Indian culture,

presenting the flavours, sounds and sights of Indian

culture through the story of a great Indian warrior

named Prince Rama, his beautiful wife, Sita and

the demonic King Ravana who had 20 arms and 10

heads.

Ravana kidnapped Sita who left a trail of her

jewellery for Rama to follow. With the help of the

monkey king Hanuman along with all the monkeys,

bears and other animals, Sita was found and freed

after a mighty battle between Rama and the evil

Ravana. Diwali is a representation of the people

lighting oil lamps to guide Rama and Sita back to

their home with Diwali becoming an annual event

to signify how light triumphs over dark and good

triumphs over evil.

Generation Homes Christchurch which is a

recognised name within Selwyn, are the sole naming

sponsors for this year’s Diwali Festival. This is yet

another occasion when the company has given back

to the community. In the past, they have assisted

with the St John Rolleston base renovations, donated

funds for a new ambulance in Selwyn, and helped

create Knights Stream School’s new bike park.

“We’re proud to be associated with the biggest

Indian festival in Canterbury, an event which draws

people from all over New Zealand to celebrate

Diwali,” says Evan Beker who with wife Nadja, are

owners of Generation Homes Christchurch.

“The Christchurch Fiji Association is sincerely

grateful to Generation Homes Christchurch for

sponsoring this year’s Diwali celebrations, and sales

consultant Amit Srivastav who has assisted us with

many of our regular events,” says Vinesh Prakash,

Secretary of the Christchurch Fiji Association and

Coordinator for the 2019 Diwali festival.

This sponsorship is just another example of

Generation Homes Christchurch’s involvement

with new immigrants, with the company having

assisted many into their first New Zealand home.

With Indian as their first language, new home sales

consultants Amit Srivastav and Vivek Srivastava are

able to help many local Indians through

the building process, giving them the

opportunity for more input into the

construction of their new home.

“Sponsoring the Diwali Festival

has allowed us to support the Indian

community and other new immigrants

in the region,” adds Amit.

The Diwali light festival will

include cultural presentations and

food. It will be held in Christchurch’s

Cathedral Square on Saturday, 26th

October from 2pm until 9pm.
