Selwyn

drivers

ignoring

stop

signs

• By Devon Bolger

SELWYN DRIVERS appear to be

the main offenders when it comes

to not stopping at intersections.

A police campaign has been

under way in the district for three

weeks targeting motorists who

fail to stop.

Overall statistics are not yet

available, but in the early stages of

the campaign it was local drivers

who were flouting the law, Senior

Sergeant Dean Harker said.

“I think there has been a bit of

complacency as a number of those

we have caught not stopping are

Selwyn locals,” he said.

“It is concerning because some

people who are turning left at the

stop sign are just rolling through

the corner and others are just going

straight through.

“Within an hour of monitoring

some intersections, we are getting

up to about 15-20 people who

aren’t stopping.”

Motorists have been receiving

$150 fines and 20 demerit points.

Fewer fires said

to be a result of restrictions

• By Devon Bolger

VOLUNTEER firefighters

are attributing a quieter

Christmas and New Year season

to residents following fire

restrictions.

Principal rural fire officer

Bruce Janes said it has been less

busy than this time last year.

“We were

more alert, we

had aircraft on

standby, a lot

of personnel

on standby.

I would say

Bruce Janes

we were more

attentive and

expecting some

drama but nothing really eventuated,”

he said.

Mr Janes said the weather

conditions are not as bad as last

year.

“The grass is not as brownedoff

as it was and we are expecting

some rain this week which

would be good.

“We are in better shape than

we were last year that’s for sure.”

Since fire restrictions came

into place last month, people

have been responding very well,

Mr Janes said.

“People are being fire savvy

and getting their permits. It is

pleasing to see.”

But at 12.19am on Friday a fire

spread through 80m of hedge

at Irwell. Leeston volunteer

firefighters took two hours to

extinguish the blaze.

Rolleston chief fire officer

Cam Kenyon said there had

been a low number of fires over

Christmas and New Year in

their area.

“Normally at this time of year

we would get quite a few scrub

fires and we haven’t really.

“I just think the message is

finally getting through to people

and it has just been quite quiet

out here,” he said.

Lincoln deputy chief fire officer

Roger McLenaghen said they have

been reasonably quiet as well.

“There has been nothing major

really over this holiday period.

People seem to be doing everything

correctly and following the

rules which is great,” he said.

Southbridge chief fire officer

Donald McMillan also said it

has been quieter in the area than

most previous years.

POSITIVE: Fire

chiefs in the

district say

it has been

a quieter

holiday

season

without major

flare-ups due

to people

adhering to

restrictions.

“I do think the reason we

haven’t been as busy is because

of the way the local authorities

are making people get permits,

follow restrictions and that sort

of thing,” he said.

Rakaia chief fire officer Tyrone

Burrows said it has been a quiet

fire season for them.

“The season started a lot earlier

last year I would say and we

have had fewer grass fires and

things like that,” he said.

Fire restrictions were put in

place in the district at midnight

on December 13.

Pair face

25 charges

after

fleeing police

• By Devon Bolger

TWO PEOPLE have been arrested

after a car being sought for petrol

drive-offs and fleeing police was

found in Leeston.

A man has been charged with

dishonesty offences, failing to

stop, and drugs charges.

A woman has been charged

with unlawfully getting into a

motor vehicle.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said 25 charges have been laid

after the pair were found in

a vehicle that was sought for

multiple incidents.

THe suspects are not from

Selwyn, he said.

It follows the discovery of the

vehicle in Leeston at 9.25am on

Friday.

A police officer spotted the

vehicle behind a skatepark on

Holley St.

Other units were then called

in for support and the pair were

taken into custody.

Three Selwyn residents were recognised for their services to the community with a Queen’s Service Medal in

the New Year Honours List

Involvement in history, sport

• By Gordon Findlater

WHEN IT comes to dedication

to sport and history in Selwyn

not many can rival 81-year-old

Roger Gilbert.

The long-time Leeston resident

was recognised with a Queen’s

Service Medal in the New Year

Honours List for services to

sport and local history. Over the

years he has served extensively

in voluntary positions in the

fields of sport, local history and

agriculture for more than 40

years.

Mr Gilbert has been captain

and chairman of the Killinchy

Tennis Club. He was president

of the Ellesmere Tennis Sub-

Association and played for the

senior representative team. He

has also been president of the

Ellesmere Golf Club, president

and life member of Canterbury

Golf. He is also the patron of

the Canterbury Eagles Golfing

Society.

He has lived in Leeston his

entire life. He farmed sheep and

crop with his father Walter and

later with his son John, before

selling the family farm 20 years

ago.

“I was born in the Leeston

Hospital, moved three-and-ahalf

miles out to the farm and

moved three-and-a-half miles

back into Leeston,” said Gilbert.

In his earlier years Mr Gilbert

played interclub golf for Ellesmere.

He was also the president

of the club during their extension

from a 13-hole course to 18

holes in 1972.

“You played 12 holes and then

you played the first five holes

again, then the 18th hole came

back to the clubhouse,” said Mr

Gilbert.

“The 10th hole is the same,

that’s about the only one that

didn’t change.”

He also played interclub tennis

for Killinchy and won a premier

title as part of a Killinchy,

QUEEN’S SERVICE Medal

recipient Bruce Russell says he

could not have achieved what

he has without the support of

people around him.

The West Melton resident was

named on the New Year Honours

list for his contribution to

community organisations in

Canterbury that has spanned

more than 50 years.

The 78-year-old was the

chairman of the West Melton

Residents Association and the

West Melton Reserve committee

and is still involved with the

groups 20 years on.

he also won a premier senior

Mr Gilbert also has a strong

interest in local history from a

young age. He was the foundation

president of the Ellesmere

Historical Society from 1996

until 2018 and is a life member.

“I’ve always had an interest

in history. Mum’s father lived

with us for eight or 10 years after

grandmother died, so it was

sort of from listening to him.

Dad’s mother was a great one on

history and always interesting

in the way she told it,” said Mr

Gilbert.

and 2019.

He helped to organise a

fundraising drive of more than

$430,000 towards the facility.

Mr Russell has lived in the

district for nearly his entire life,

originally living in Greendale.

“My family and I moved in

the early 1940s to our farm in

Irwell, near Leeston, which is on

the shore of Lake Ellesmere.”

He went on to move into

Christchurch when he was in

his 50s where he met his partner

Margaret Langdale-Hunt.

They eventually moved to

West Melton where they have

been for the last 26 years.

Mr Russell has been an active

member of the New Zealand

and English Freemasons for 46

He has written two books –

Ellesmere Rugby Sub-Union 1906

to 2006 and The History of the

South Island Field Days 1951 to

2011. Mr Gilbert was awarded

the A.C. Rhodes History Medal

in 2014, which recognises the

work of a non-academic Canterbury

historian who has significantly

added to local knowledge

or has advanced and popularised

history in the wider Canterbury

community.

Mr Gilbert has also had a

strong involvement in agriculture

over the years. He chaired

the Ellesmere Young Farmers

Club and the Christchurch

District Committee. In 1965

he was elected chairman of the

South Island Agricultural Field

Days. He has been vice-president

of Federated Farmers North

Canterbury and recently retired

as chair of the North Canterbury

Farmers Charitable Trust.

These days Mr Gilbert is

still actively involved with the

Canterbury Eagles Golfing

Society. However, he admits he

hasn’t played much golf over the

past 12 months due to his legs

not being as good as they used

to be.

Brookside – the district’s best

THE SMALL picturesque

hamlet of Brookside is a historic

gem in the story of colonial

settlement in the Selwyn

District, even though few people

other than Ellesmere locals know

where it is or that it even exists.

Now no more than a small

number of old buildings dating

back to the 1860s, along with a

few farms and lifestyle blocks,

nestled among woodlots of

beautiful mature specimen trees,

Brookside is an important living

link to the district’s past and was

once a thriving community.

Located at the intersections of

Brookside-Burnham Rd, Brookside-Irwell

Rd, and Boundary

Creek Rd, the best approach to

the settlement is from Selwyn

Lake Rd.

Originally known as South

Selwyn, this name caused some

confusion with the nearby village

of Selwyn – located on the

south side of the current Selwyn

bridge on State Highway 1. In

1870 the name of the settlement

was changed to Brookside in

honour of Thomas Brooks who

had gifted land for the establishment

of the school and the

Methodist Church.

Brookside is now dominated

by fertile farmland, but

in its natural state it was heavy

swampland covered in flax and

raupo. There was also some lighter

drier land covered in tussock

in parts of the area, especially on

the north side of the Irwell Creek

that runs through the hamlet

towards Irwell and on to Lake

Ellesmere.

It is unknown whether there

was any permanent Maori settlement

in the area, but there

was evidence found of middens

and stone implement during the

colonial era that indicated some

form of earlier occupation.

The first freehold land at

Brookside was made available in

1860, which led to a number of

pioneering families taking the

opportunity to establish their

own small farms.

with the area.

These hardy pioneers then set

about transforming the area into

productive farmland, ensuring it

eventually became a flourishing

agricultural community.

Tussock was burned and large

tracks of swamp were drained; a

mammoth task in an era when

this could only be achieved

through manual labour, horsepower

and rudimentary tools.

By 1900 the whole area had

been transformed into welldrained,

high cultivated land;

although the location was still

exposed to flooding from the

Selwyn River several kilometers

to the north of the hamlet.

Wheat became the staple crop

grown in the better drained

areas and was sown as soon as

the land was cleared. Oats, barley

and peas were also grown, with

around 3500 acres of land eventually

being cropped annually.

Initially, the ploughing of

the fields was done by a singlefurrow

implement towed by two

horses, and it was estimated that

farmers walked 10 to 12 miles in

ploughing a single acre.

In the early years, transportation

of farm produce to markets

was limited to using a horse and

dray for the eight-hour journey to

Christchurch. Things improved

from 1869 when the railhead was

extended to Selwyn, followed by

the establishment of the Southbridge

branch line in 1875.

The damper land around the

village proved extremely good

for dairying and grazing. A

number of farmers had large

flocks of sheep, which at the

time were primarily used to

produce wool. Dairying and

cheese-making also became

leading industries in the area,

with butter and cheese being

exported.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Canterbury’s fastest selling

new subdivision

Brookside also became noted

for breeding of stud stock, with

many of the locals gaining wide

recognition and winning prizes

at national agricultural shows.

By 1880 Brookside was a

flourishing village and district.

Amenities included a post office,

several grocery stores, a boot repair

shop and a blacksmith shop.

The early settlers placed high

value on education and religion,

which defined the community.

A public school had been

established in 1867, with the children

being taught in part of the

Presbyterian Church which had

been built the same year. Two

years later a new purpose-built

school was built on land along

Brookside Burnham Rd, near

the intersection with Boundary

Creek Rd.

At this time the school roll was

28, but by 1876 it had increased

to 161. This led to the building of

a new classroom and an increase

in teaching staff to four teachers

– the master, a school mistress

and two pupil teachers.

The school also featured stables

and a paddock for the pupil’s

horses and ponies while the children

attended class.

However, due to the gradual

population decline in the area

from the time of World War 1,

the school roll declined, reverting

to a single class with one teacher.

In 1944 when the school closed

it only had 19 pupils. From that

time the local children travelled

to school in Leeston by bus. The

school building was then used as

the Brookside Community Hall

for a number of years but is now

in a poor state of repair and used

for farm storage.

Brookside was jokingly known

locally as the ‘Holy City.’ This

was due to the three churches

that had been built within the

small village and the uncommon

feature that there was no pub in

the community. There was strong

support for the temperance

movement in the area, with 65

locals forming a chapter of the

Good Templars Lodge in 1880.

A Presbyterian Church had

LONG-SERVING: Brookside Library – established in 1874 and

recently restored by the local community. It still functions as

a library. (Below) – St Luke’s Anglican Church and graveyard –

built in 1880, it is the only church still operating in the village.

been built in 1867, followed by a

Methodist Church in 1870. An

Anglican church, St Luke’s, was

built in 1880 and is now the only

functioning church in the hamlet.

Together with the graveyard

within its grounds, St Luke’s

remains an important heritage

feature of the village. The Methodist

Church, opposite St Luke’s

on Brookside Burnham Rd, was

closed in 1972 and has since been

converted into a private dwelling.

The Presbyterian church was

demolished in 1976.

Another remaining heritage

feature of Brookside is the recently

restored library adjacent to

the old school. This was opened

in 1874 and still provides a service

to the area.

Brookside’s remaining old

buildings provide a tangible link

to the district’s pioneering past.

It’s also a great place to stop

and have a quiet walk around to

appreciate one of the beautiful

locations in Selwyn.

IRRITATING: The white-footed ant feeds on human food and

dead insects.

Tropical ant likes a

warm environment

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

entomology (insects and other invertebrates).

Each week he introduces a new species found in

his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise

public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of

living things around us. Check out the full list of

invertebrates found at http://naturewatch.org.

nz/projects/backyard-biodiversity-bugs-in-lincoln

AN IRRITATING insect more

commonly observed around

our house in recent times is the

white footed ant (Technomyrmex

jocosus).

THis is known as a tramp

species – one that has a clear

preference for tropical areas

of the world but adapts by

living inside buildings in more

temperate temperatures.

THis is why I have seen it

moving up and down the pillars

on our house, as they often set

up their nest in the roof space.

This 3-3.4mm long, dark brown

to black coloured ant was first

recorded in Nelson in 1921

and established in Auckland in

1940s.

It has was recorded as far

south as Dunedin in 1993 but

is more commonly found in the

warmer North Island.

Nests are found under logs

and stones including in forested

areas.

THe white-footed ant eats

human food, dead insects and

have been seen feeding off

honeydew produced by scales on

citrus species.

Fire alarm speaker stolen from school

POLICE ARE looking

for two people in relation

to the theft of a school

speaker.

Police said the speaker

was part of Clearview Primary

School’s fire alarm

system. They said this type

of speaker has been stolen

in the past so teenagers

can use it to blast music.

Sergeant Alex Pickover

said the speaker was taken

on December 14 about

10pm.

“In the past when these

had been taken, teenagers/

youths usually use the

speaker on their bicycles

to play music from,” he

said.

Biscuits, torn paper

and new decades

WOWEE, a whole new

decade. A whole new year.

And one where we can

all clearly see the future . . .

because it’s 2020.

Get it? Come on, it’s

begging for awful dad

jokes. Happy New Year

everybody, here’s to it

bringing us all happiness,

adventure and new

experiences.

This week I’ll run you

through a couple of my

highlights of Vittoria’s

second Christmas.

On Christmas Eve I got

brave and baked biscuits

with her for the first time.

I even let her cut them into

Christmas shapes with my

new moulds, something

she took to like a duck

cutting water.

She was more than happy

to cooperate and stir or

mix when needed for the

actual biscuit part of the

task, which was one of

those amazingly affirming

parenting moments. It felt

like we were a real team.

That feeling even lasted

into the icing, only slipping

a little as she continously

dipped her finger into

the sugary mixture to eat

it while simultaniously

pouring the majority of

it onto one heart shaped

bikkie.

And it completely

disappeared later while

Laura and I prepped for

our traditional family

Christmas Eve dinner,

although Vittoria was

clearly just tired and

feeling left out. She kind of

disolved into a mix of over

excited running around

the kitchen, or crying

and wanting to be picked

up while my hands were

covered in prawn juice.

However, I think the

yuletide joy had really

clicked for Vittoria earlier

in the day, when our

amazing neighbour came

BAKING: Big smiles while mixing the biscuit

dough.

over to spoil her with the

gift of her first bicycle.

Not only was it a large

box covered in bright paper

she could tear open, but

there was something for

her inside. Something she

never knew she wanted

so much, but now she was

literally bringing me tools

and bike bits in an effort

for me to build it faster

so she could sit on it and

pretend to ride it.

While that definitely

whetted her appetite for

tearing open gifts, she

managed to contain herself

when we arrived at my

mum’s in Waikuku for

Christmas Day lunch.

She only made one

“ooooo” sound as she

passed the presents under

the tree on the way in and

VITTORIA

& Matt

didn’t try to take things

into her own hands before

the official opening time

started, once people could

move again after lunch.

With her grandad very

obediently working as

torn paper holder, Vittoria

boldly tore through

unwrapping her gifts with

100 times more interest

than she had shown on her

first Christmas.

I’m sure she’ll be

even more excited next

Christmas. Just as I’m sure

that that will be just one

of the many adventures

awaiting us this year.

2 cups water

¼ cup sugar

2 garlic cloves, crushed lightly

½ tsp fennel seeds

¼ tsp celery seeds

2 Tbsp sea salt flakes

2 bay leaves

Directions

Wash the jar in hot water and

set aside. Prepare the vegetables

and set aside.

Put the vinegar, water, sugar,

garlic and aromatics in a medium

saucepan. Bring to the boil.

Add carrots and cook for two

minutes. Add the fennel and

celery and cook for a further two

minutes.

Carefully put all the vegetables

into the clean jar and pour over

the pickling solution so the vegetables

are completely submerged.

Seal the jar and allow to cool.

For best results, allow the

vegetables to pickle for at least

a week before eating. This will

keep in the fridge for a couple of

months.

Garnishing

75g pistachio nuts

1 pomegranate, peeled and seeds

separated

a handful of micro mint

a handful of edible flowers

Directions

Prepare the maple glaze. Place

sugar and mustard in a saucepan

and bring to a boil. Let it boil for

eight to 10min, until thick and

sticky. Set aside.

Score the skin of the lamb,

then season well with salt, pepper

and sumac.

Place a large frying pan over

high heat and heat until it is

smoking. Add the olive oil,

followed by the lamb, skin-side

down. Let it cook until the skin

is caramelised and golden in

colour.

Preheat the oven to 240 deg C.

Remove the lamb and place

skin-side up in an oven dish.

Brush with the maple glaze and

roast for 30min.

Brush with the maple glaze

every 10min until a thermometer

inserted into the thickest

part of the leg reads 54 deg C for

medium rare.

Remove and place on a wire

rack. Cover with aluminium foil

and let rest for 10min.

Arrange on a serving plate

and garnish with pistachio nuts,

pomegranate seeds, micro mint

and edible flowers.

TANGY: This

recipe makes a

1-litre jar.

Wine

Reaching for the

refreshing rieslings

• By Mark Henderson

I MUST admit to having

been caught out once again

this year, as the festive

season came rushing

headlong towards me,

though I’m certain I’m not

the only one in that boat.

It all seemed so far away,

then suddenly . . . it’s not.

What to feature? Recent

warmer weather has had

me reaching for riesling.

So be it.

2017 Pegasus Bay Bel

Canto Dry Riesling

Price: $37

Rating: Excellent

Smoke and struck match,

white flowers, mandarin

and orange, some burnt

toast with time. This is a

powerfully expressed style,

textural, viscous with spice,

dry honey and beeswax

leading, notes of lime and

tobacco also appearing. As

always, a fascinating wine

built on complexity, weight

and richness.

A wine to contemplate,

and probably best with

food.

Price: $30

Rating: Excellent to

Alluring nose, a waft

of struck match, musk,

mandarin, white flowers

and toast. The palate

leads with honey, but the

acidity whips this into

shape, offering up lime and

orange citrus as the wine

flows to a musk and honey

accented, yet relatively dry

finish. Delightful texture,

richness, complexity and

real interest here with

lovely freshness on the

close.

Delicious and very

moreish.

Smoked salmon would

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Trade skills help

solo dad build a

better future

Newly qualified carpenter Tim Crawford

hopes his experience of overcoming

challenges and finding a new direction in

life will inspire others to do the same.

In 2006, while he was working as a gym

instructor and personal trainer, Tim took

full custody of his two children. Becoming

a solo parent meant he had to quit his job

and go on the domestic purposes benefit.

He remained on the DPB for seven years

while raising his kids, but never lost his

motivation or desire to get back to work.

He studied business, but when that didn’t

lead to work, he got a job as a laundry

driver.

“The driving job wasn’t challenging me

or helping me reach my potential,” he says.

“So in 2015 I got a new job as a builder’s

labourer. That company saw my potential

and they offered me an apprenticeship

which I grabbed with both hands.”

As part of his apprenticeship, and in

order to become qualified in the trade,

Tim studied a National Certificate in

Carpentry at Ara Institute of Canterbury.

“It was awesome, even better than I’d

expected,” he says. “I was treated like I

was important and not just a number, and

the staff went out of their way to help me

succeed. I was supported and guided all

the way.”

Tim says the classroom environment at

Ara was interactive and fun. “It was easy to

ask questions and the course information

was clear and concise with easy-to-follow

book work and presentations.”

Tim says although he didn’t do well at

school, he’s made up for it at Ara. “I love

to learn and Ara made it easy for me to do

so. My story of getting off the benefit and

at the same time looking after my children

and running a household is something

I’m really proud of. I hope it will inspire

others who are in the same position I was,

especially as an adult apprentice. I’m a

better, happier person for it and some of

my best moments in life were spent in the

classrooms at Ara.”

2015 Misha’s Vineyard

Lyric Riesling

Price: $28

Rating: Very good to

Attractively floral nose,

red apple, lime cordial,

custard and sherbet. Richly

textured, creaminess

to the palate and lovely

flow through the mouth

popping up notes of

lemon, lime and honey.

This is ‘‘together’’ and

nicely integrated, the nose

and palate opening up

nicely, a little zestiness

enlivening the finish, and in

a great place to enjoy now.

Valley Riesling

Price: $39

Rating: Outstanding

Fresh, an almost aerial

quality, hints of sea-breeze

and citrus. The palate is

richer than the nose might

suggest offering Rose’s lime

cordial, orange, honey,

pollen, beeswax and musky

botrytis hints. Power

and richness without

weight, lovely balance

and complexity, flowing

to a long and appealing

close lifted by a whisper of

aniseed, and zestiness.

Simply wonderful.

Price: $27.95

Lightly honeyed, fruit

sweetness with pear and

Facial eczema costs farmers

Dairy facial eczema (FE) can cost

farmers at least $100,000 each year in

lost milk production, a recent study has

found.

The Ministry for Primary Industries’

(MPI) Sustainable Farming Fund is

supporting the Facial Eczema Action

Group – made up of veterinarians, dairy

farmers and rural professionals – to

explore ways of raising awareness of FE

so that more farmers take preventative

action.

Many cows don’t show clinical signs of

FE. As a result, farmers often don’t know

why milk loss is happening and end up

drying off their cows early.

“It’s hitting farmers hard in the pocket.

They’re losing 0.14-0.35kg milk solids

per cow per day,” said Emma Cuttance, a

dairy veterinarian and head of Veterinary

Enterprises Group (VetEnt) Research –

which is leading the project.

“We worked out that one of the herds

in our study had lost $125,000 just in

milk production.”

She says zinc is currently the main way

of treating FE. “But many farmers don’t

administer enough to control the toxin

that causes FE.”

Trial work in 2014, examining zinc

concentrations in the blood of 1200 cattle

from over 100 farms in the North Island,

showed that about 70% of cattle did not

have enough zinc to protect against FE.

“Blood testing is the best way to

determine how badly affected the cows

are if they have FE. However, getting

farmers to do blood tests can be tricky

because of the cost and time involved,”

Cuttance said.

The project team brought in

AgResearch to examine the wellbeing

of cows affected by FE to see if there are

other ways of identifying symptoms.

Steve Penno, director of investment

programmes at MPI, said its support of

the project recognised that FE was an

issue that needed to be addressed.

“Whichever way you look at it, it’s in

farmers’ best interests to proactively

manage this disease, by improving cattle

health and wellbeing and the bottom

line.”

He says to help prevent the disease,

farmers need to monitor the spore count

on their own farm.

They are advised to start a management

programme when spore counts trend

upwards to 30,000 spores/g and continue

until spore counts are 10,000 spores/g or

below for at least three weeks.

Blood testing is advised to check the

effectiveness of zinc administration.

Great day out at Little River

Just a short drive from Christchurch

the Little River A&P show on Saturday 18

January 2020 promises to be a great day

out for the whole family.

There will be pony rides, bouncy

castles, clowns, carnival rides

and a wide range of exhibits to

experience so pencil the date in

now.

Banks Peninsula’s strong

farming and agricultural roots

were first showcased at the

inaugural Banks Peninsula A&P

Show in 1909 and this year will be

their 108th show.

Livestock have traditionally

been the bread and butter for Banks

Peninsula residents and the Little River show reflects

this heritage in the large number of sheep exhibits, with

exhibitors coming from across Canterbury to take part.

The 2020 show will include a South Down feature show.

The wool section provides a chance for the public to

see and feel fine quality fleeces grown locally.

The yard dogs exhibition is a fun and thrilling way to

experience working dogs demonstrating their skills up

close; and our very popular ‘dog high jump’ will also be

featuring again in the main ring. The pet lamb and calf

classes are always popular for everyone in the family.

Competitive horse riding has always been a key

feature of the Little River A&P show with talented

riders from across the district competing for trophies

as well as the possibility of entry into the Horse of The

Year competition. Another feature is a fancy dress class

in the Shetland pony sections.

The Peninsula Produce and Craft marquee is a

wonderful way to explore some of the homegrown

talent this area has to offer with local artists,

herbalists, crafters and growers showing their wares.

The cakes and preserves section is also well worth a

look along with the flower section and high quality

photographs featuring beautiful locations around Banks

Peninsula.

Later in the day watch local shearers and farmers

battle in out in the team speed shearing competition

and the competitive nature

continues in the wood chopping

demonstrations.

The Little River show

promises to be a great day out

for visitors and locals

alike and the chance to

relax with family

and friends.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

SELWYN TIMES

Mulch for a successful summer garden

EVEN THOUGH the sun is

shining, January is not an easy

month for the home garden.

Lack of attention due to

holidays, high temperatures, low

rainfall and often strong winds

all make it a tough time for

plants.

Sustaining soil moisture

becomes a gardener’s greatest

challenge this month. Mulching

is the magic word and will

help reduce water loss alongside

regular, consistent watering.

Harvesting galore in the

vege garden

Vegetables going to seed or

‘bolting’ can happen easily in

summer when plants have been

stunted or stressed during the

growing period. This is usually

caused by a lack of or inconsistent

watering.

Maintain strong healthy

growth with regular, deep

watering and applications of

fresh compost around maturing

vegetables. Always increase

watering during any periods of

drought and mulch with bark or

pea straw to significantly reduce

water loss from your garden.

Veges to harvest include;

beans, carrots, eggplants, beetroot,

cucumbers, peas, radish,

sweetcorn and zucchini. Keep up

the constant supply and regularly

RIPE: Apricots should now be ready for harvest. (Right) – Mulch to keep moisture in the soil.

plant out lettuce, dwarf beans

and radish.

Blooming annuals

A stunning month for summer

flowering annuals. These plants

thrive in the hot weather and

their floral displays will be outstanding.

Keep dead-heading for

continuous blooming and water,

water water.

Strawberries

Many new varieties will continue

to crop through January

so don’t neglect the strawberry

patch yet! Maintain some netting

cover to keep birds away. Water

plants deeply two to three times

a week and mulch around plants

with pea straw or crushed bark.

Fruit trees

January is an important month

for harvesting delicious stone

fruit like apricots, cherries,

peaches and plums. Towards

the end of January, the first

apples begin to ripen. Fruit trees

planted last winter will need

regular watering and a layer of

mulch to achieve maximum

growth during the season. This is

particularly important for young

citrus trees.

Raspberries

Make the most of your raspberry

plants as January is the end

of the main cropping season. Excess

growth should be removed

and vigorous young canes tied

up for next season’s crop.

Roses

As temperatures and humidity

increase, the successful cultivation

of healthy roses becomes

increasingly difficult. The early

season flush of flowers has finished,

and now the battle with

rust and black spot commences.

Some regions have even reported

seeing these diseases starting to

take hold in December.

Spray plants every two weeks

throughout summer to treat

any disease or pests. Water

regularly and apply mulch to

keep moisture and nutrients in.

Pay special attention to potted

roses to ensure they don’t dry

out. Dead head plants once

a week to encourage repeat

flowering.

Herbs

The herb garden this month

should be bountiful in the

production of fresh herbs. Trim

plants regularly even if you aren’t

using them as it helps stimulate

young fresh growth. Replace any

herbs that have bolted to seed

with young plants.

Lawns

As with roses, it is not an easy

month for lawns. Irrigate during

the cooler hours of the day and

leave grass to grow a little longer

during summer as it provides

better collection of rainfall.

BATTLE: Make

sure your roses

don’t get rust or

black spot.

Call the landscape experts for your slope

LANDSCAPING on a slope can

be a very difficult job and, if not

done accurately, it can easily be

destroyed in the first heavy rain,

which causes terrain movement.

Generally, landscaping on a

slope is done for gardens and

courtyards. Here are some tips to

make the plan a success.

• Points to consider

If you are looking for

landscaping on a slope for your

garden, the first thing you may

want to consider is drainage for

the water as this will be your

number one enemy in due

course.

Once a clear drainage path is

constructed, you will be able to

get rid of the excess water in the

terrain, which usually causes the

soil to move and destroy your

landscape.

To obtain a secure landscaping

on a slope you can also create a

rock garden, which will further

establish a strong foundation.

The rocks are heavy enough not

to be easily moved by heavy rains

or soil movement, thus ensuring

your landscaping on the slope is

safe.

CONSTRUCTION: A strong foundation is necessary when you are planning any type of garden on uneven ground. (Right) – Ensure

you have a way for water to drain away from a rock garden, otherwise the area could be undermined.

• Contact an expert

Many of us prefer to create the

small improvements in our house

by ourselves however, landscaping

on a slope is complicated

enough for you to consider taking

the advice of an expert in order

not to waste your money and

time.

There are many concerns that

specialise in landscaping and they

too consider landscaping on a

slope pretty difficult and challenging;

different tactics apply

to different types of terrain and

soil. Even experts at times cannot

guarantee a landscape on a slope,

therefore, consider taking professional

advice before investing in

any work by yourself.

• Other helpful tips

There are books, magazines and

websites that will guide you step

by step in constructing your own

landscape should you choose

to do it yourself.

If you decide you are not

going to have help with your

landscaping on the slope, try and

obtain as such data as possible

before you start the job.

You may also want to check

what others did wrong and how

you can avoid doing the same as

well.

Online is a great place to find

reviews and comments from

others who have been in the

same situation as yourself; their

mistakes can help you avoid them

as well as their advice which may

improve your chances in building

a great landscape on the slope.

High comfort levels in Mitsubishi ASX

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

YOU SURE know you’re hurting

when you’ve got a painful back.

Mine has been bugging me

for a few weeks now, and it’s

brought to my attention how

difficult it is getting in and out

of some cars, yet highlights how

easy it is to do the same in a sport

utility vehicle.

I’ve just driven two Mitsubishi

SUVs, one after the other,

an Outlander and ASX. I felt

comfortable in both and the seat

height made for easy entry and

egress.

On top of that, the ride the

modern SUV provides doesn’t

tax the body, there is plenty of

suspension movement, and there

is an element of suppleness within

the spring and damper rates that

easily cushions the hits from road

ripples, bumps and ruts.

This evaluation focuses on

the ASX, a Lancer-based midsize

SUV that has been with

Mitsubishi since 2011. Meaning

active smart crossover, the

ASX has undergone a raft of

changes throughout its lifecycle

and I’m pleased to report that

the upgrades and refinements

over the years easily make it a

tempting proposition in today’s

market.

For 2020 the ASX had a fairly

hefty makeover; well, in that

context it has had a strong refresh

up front, the frontal area now

has a bold, edgy design which

sure captures attention, it is a

departure from the soft, curvy

lines of its predecessor.

The test car was painted a nice

new colour – sunshine orange –

which also aroused favourable

comment. The upgrade doesn’t

finish there either, there are

cosmetic changes inside, notably

the inclusion of a larger screen

which makes navigating the

vehicle’s functions just that much

easier.

In terms of mechanical

changes, the ASX has changed

direction slightly. No longer is

there a four-wheel-drive model,

all variants are front-drive only

and all are powered by a petrol

engine – gone is the diesel option.

Mitsubishi also state that for

buyers who want an SUV with

four-wheel-drive, its Eclipse

Cross captures that part of the

market.

The ASX range starts at

$29,990, and ends at $41,090 for

the 2.4-litre VRX as evaluated. It’s

important to note that there are

two entry-level models and both

are 2-litre powered.

However, the 2360cc unit

develops 123kW and 222Nm,

and is paired to a six-step

MITSUBISHI ASX: Facelift for 2020.

continuously variable automatic.

These power and torque outputs

are traditional, they arrive tall

in the rev band at 6000rpm

and 4100rpm respectively;

nevertheless, when you have the

benefit of CVT there is a constant

point of gearing which instantly

meets throttle request.

The ASX feels lively and will

cut out a standstill to 100km/h

time in 9.2sec, it’s also quite smart

on a highway overtake, 5.5sec to

make 120km/h from 80km/h is

about the norm for a vehicle such

as this.

I took the test car inland

following the course of the

Waimakariri River and home

through Darfield and Burnham.

It cruises quietly at highway speed

and affords a smooth ride.

Benefitting from the original

four-wheel-drive chassis

engineering, the ASX is sprung

on a fully independent front

strut/rear multiple link system.

While the rear end doesn’t carry

driveshafts any more, the set-up is

compliant and as I’ve alluded to it

is dampened only moderately so

that the occupants benefit from a

smooth, controlled ride.

I pointed the test car at a

couple of tricky corners along

my test route, it turns nicely and

feeds positive information to the

steering wheel as to how the tyres

react under pressure.

Even without four-wheel-drive

there is still the feel that grip

levels are elevated, while balance

is fully retained. I like the way

the ASX drives, it’s no sports car

but it does have performance and

handling ability which is far in

excess of its purpose.

In terms of fuel use, Mitsubishi

has done well to lean out the

engine. As I remarked previously,

it has been around for some time,

but it is a fuel miser and carries

• Price – Mitsubishi ASX

VRX, $40,090

• Dimensions – Length,

4365mm; width, 1810mm;

height, 1640mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

2360cc, 123kW,

222Nm, continuously

variable automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.2sec

• Fuel usage – 7.9l/100km

a 7.9-litre per 100km (36mpg)

combined cycle claim.

The fuel usage readout was

constantly listing at around

8.4l/100km (33mpg) during

my time with the test car, and I

can report a 5l/100km (56mpg)

instantaneous figure sitting at a

steady 100km/h. At that speed the

engine is working over at a lazy

1750rpm in the tallest part of the

gearing.

In VRX specification, the

ASX gets a healthy level of

specification including full leather

trim with heated front seats and

keyless entry and ignition. There

are also many additions for safety

and infotainment.

I was a little disappointed

when I took the ASX back,

I’m convinced it helped in the

recovery of my back muscles.

Now it’s back to battling the low

seat position in the Kiddie-family

Toyota, I’m hoping my back will

last out until the scheduled drive

I have in the new year for the

upgraded Outlander Sport.
