Fires could

spread from

burning cars

BEWARE: Burnt-out cars like these are being dumped along the Waimakariri River and are a

fire risk. ​

• By Devon Bolger

PEOPLE AND property could

be put at risk from stolen vehicles

being set alight and left dumped

along the Waimakariri River as

the district continues to

dry out.

Resident Carol Garland,

whose property

backs on to the river

near Kirwee, is worried

a major fire could

result.

Her concerns are

backed by Fire and

Emergency New Zealand,

but there appears

little that can be done to stop the

problem.

Said fire risk management

officer Kerri Pring: “There is

absolutely a fire risk and they are

a risk to people. But it falls down

to Environment Canterbury and

police to do something about it.”

But Senior Sergeant Dean

Harker said it was difficult to

catch people setting fire to vehicles.

“The river is just a dumping

ground for cars stolen from

Christchurch basically. We work

Kerri Pring

with ECan but it is difficult to

trace the vehicles back to anyone,”

he said.

A total fire ban across the district

came into effect on Friday.

It means that no fires

will be permitted during

this time unless it

is an approved fire type

for cooking purposes.

The fire risk in parts of

the district on Monday

was very high.

Meanwhile, more lifestyle

block owners will

get a chance to learn

about protecting their

homes this fire season.

It will be held on February 16

in Lincoln Event Centre (1-3pm).

Police and the district council

Civil Defence team will also

attend.

It will be similar to one held

in West Melton about two weeks

ago and will include how to

prepare properties for the peak

fire season and what to do in the

event of a fire.

That meeting proved popular

and drew in a crowd of 218

landowners.

from the editor’s desk

LINCOLN IS starting to look a bit like a

goldrush town of the 1880s. Well probably

not quite.

A new drinking (and eating) establishment

is poised to open in the fast growing

township – the Oktoberfest Eatery and Bar

(see page 5). German, of course.

It will add to The Famous Grouse, Black Door, Flaming

Rabbit, Laboratory and Kingfisher to eat and drink at.

Oktoberfest will be sited in Rosemerryn, no doubt to catch

the people living in the new subdivisions close by, and the established

population on the south side of Edward St.

It was meant to have been open by now. But a glitch in the

hours in its liquor licence application is the reason for the

hold-up.

Prost beim Trinken.

Road deaths, crime

priorities for Selwyn police

Last Tickets

Available

www.selwynsounds.co.nz

In Brief

• By Devon Bolger

REDUCING ROAD deaths and

people being repeatedly targeted

for crime are the main focuses

for Selwyn police this year.

The district’s new area response

manager, Senior Sergeant

Dean Harker, said a big part of

the strategy was educating and

working with the community

and other agencies.

There is some complacency

in the district towards crime.

Many people still left keys in unattended

vehicles, and bags and

other valuables on seats, which

were a target for thieves, he said.

Repeat targeting and victimisation

is where people are being

targeted more than once in

burglaries and thefts, so educating

people how they can prevent

becoming a victim was vital.

Police also have an ongoing

campaign to try and reduce the

number of crashes at the many

intersections in the district.

There were 11 serious injury

crashes at intersections in 2019,

two of them fatal.

Senior Sergeant Harker has

worked in various police roles

Policing is also a family affair

for Senior Sergeant Harker.

“My daughter is joining the

police and is attending police

college starting in March. My

son works as an officer at the

central police station, so I’ve got

a family of cops.”

RIGHT OF REPLY EXTENDED

Fulton Hogan was granted four

extra days to submit its right

of reply to concerns raised

by submitters, Environment

Canterbury and the Selwyn

District Council to open

its controversial quarry in

Templeton. The hearing, which

finished last year was over

Fulton Hogan’s proposal to open

the quarry between Dawsons,

Jones, Maddisons and Curraghs

Rds. The right of reply was due

on Friday but its deadline was

extended to today.

CHANGING ROOMS OPEN

The new changing rooms at

Foster Park opened over the

weekend. The building includes

six changing rooms and two

rooms for match officials and

can accommodate up to 140

people. It has six public toilets

that will be open to the public

24 hours a day, two of which are

accessible and have baby change

facilities. The $1.4 million project

is the next stage in the ongoing

development of Foster Park.

Upcoming projects include an

80-space car park to be added off

Dynes Rd, which will be installed

in the next six months.

WAITING: The Oktoberfest Eatery and Bar in Lincoln is awaiting resource

consent after applying to stay open later.

Traditional German

restaurant

and bar on hold

• By Devon Bolger

A TRADITIONAL

German restaurant and

bar planned for Lincoln is

on hold after applying to

stay open later.

Oktoberfest Ltd applied

to operate a bar and restaurant

in the Rosemerryn

subdivision on Eastfield

Drive.

It will be called the Oktoberfest

Eatery and Bar.

It originally applied to

operate between Sunday-

Thursday 9am-10pm and

Friday-Saturday 9am-

11pm.

The business has now

applied to vary its hours of

operations in its resource

consent to stay open until

midnight on Friday and

Saturday and 11pm for the

rest of the week.

District council acting

regulatory manager Susan

Atherton said the application

for a liquor licence is

now on hold pending the

outcome of the variation

of resource consent.

“The application is in

THE SPRINGFIELD pit

project is making progress.

The Springfield township

committee began a project

to turn it into recreation

space for the community

last year.

Committee member

Emma Stead said the

walking track should be

finished this week.

“We’ve had Pearl

Contracting doing the

perimeter of the walking

the early stages of processing

and no decisions

around notification have

been made yet,” she said.

District council staff

were unavailable on Monday

to confirm whether or

not the new hours would

have to be notified to the

public.

Oktoberfest Ltd director

Jan Fryczewski told Selwyn

Times the later hours

are to cover for events and

functions.

“It is just to cover our

bases. If we have an event

or something like that

then we can stay open.

We probably will close by

about 10pm each night,

especially in winter.”

Mr Fryczewski said he

does not think they will

get much resistance from

the community.

“We had one objection

to our liquor licence but

that’s just one person.

Everyone else was quite

happy.”

The district council

received one objection to

track over the last week or

so and it is nearly finished

so that is the first stage.”

Ms Stead said the next

step is the installation of

the fitness equipment.

“We are currently working

on a fitness station that

is going to be going around

the perimeter. I think there

are six fitness stations to be

located around so people

can kind of move between

them via the walking

track.”

Oktoberfest Ltd’s application

for a liquor on-licence

by a member of the public.

The bar and restaurant

would be one of five bars

in the township.

Mr Fryczewski said he

thinks there is room for

everybody.

“Lincoln is growing and

I think you need five bars

to be able to service the

local community.”

He said there point of

difference will be focusing

more on the food, not the

drinks.

“The bar and restaurant

will be traditionally

German-themed with a

full menu of food. It will

be family-friendly as well.”

In 2018 Selwyn Times

reported that Lincoln has

four bars within a kilometre

of each other with the

opening of The Flaming

Rabbit.

The Famous Grouse

Hotel, The Laboratory and

Black Door Bar and Eatery

are the others.

Pit project taking shape

They have had a great

response from the community,

she said.

“People are really excited.

We had a great turn out to

our first planting day and

we are hoping for our next

planting day in March, we

will get a whole lot more

behind that as well.”

The committee also

asked the community for

ideas to name the space

which will be decided at a

meeting next month.

Celebrating 30 years racing

2020 Skope Classic - Car Racing like no other!

After 30 years of uninterrupted classic race meeting,

the Canterbury Car Club along with the long-time

sponsor and supporter, Skope Industries, will celebrate

the iconic two-day birthday event this weekend with

some fanfare.

Originally under the name of the BP Alfa Classic,

PDL Industries took over naming rights in 1995 before

Skope became involved in 2003. The enthusiasm from

competitors and the public has never waned, and the

meeting remains the biggest in both entry and crowd

numbers on the club’s calendar.

A handful of cars from the inaugural 1991 event

remain and while the value of these cars has increased,

the current owners still believe that as racing cars, their

right place is on the track.

Over the years the event has invariably carried a

theme. This year it will celebrate 50 years of the Open

Saloon Car Association (OSCA). Strictly a South Island

affair these days, OSCA was formed by a local group

who deemed that the costs of racing in the national

championship for “all-comers” type cars had become

too expensive.

In the early years, the front running cars were always

V8 powered. This has changed with time, with turbo

and rotary-powered cars also becoming front-runners.

For OSCA’s birthday at the Skope it is anticipated that

some 30 cars will line up. Some of these have not raced

for years. This includes the winning MK1 Ford Escort

Turbo of Michael Johnston, a car restored and driven

by new owner, Nick Donaldson.

Also in the field will be a 1977 5-litre Alfa Romeo

Alfetta, a car that has not raced in OSCA but against

them in the 1980s. It is competing by invitation and will

be driven by former BNTV8 champion, Angus Fogg.

Other saloon cars of note that will compete in other

classes include three former Australian Supercars, a 2004

Ford Falcon, a 2006 Ford Falcon and a 2007 Holden

Commodore, along with a selection of New Zealand

muscle cars and the Historic Touring Car category.

A crowd-pleaser for many years has been the Formula

5000 revival series cars. The category fits nicely into the

theme of classic cars. At a time when the “sound of silence”

vehicles are becoming more common on the road, it is

generally accepted that the sound of these cars along with

the V8 saloon cars are an added crowd attraction.

In the driver line, will be the well-known Richards

family - father Jim, a seven-time winner at Bathurst, his

son Steven, a five-time winner of this classic event and

his son, Clay, who now drives Formula Ford in Australia.

While the major attraction is a wonderful array of

cars, the meeting is also designed to cater for families.

Pit entry comes at no extra charge and spectators are

welcome to mingle with drivers and their cars. For

younger family members, there will be a number of

activities. We’ve got one huge children’s activity area

this year.

There have only been 4 outstanding

drivers who have taken part in all 30

Classic Car events, now known as Skope.

Dennis Champan, Debbie Chapman,

Keith Cowan & Brian Dixon.

Health concerns

over plan to expand waste plant

• By Devon Bolger

LET DOWN: Angela Jones with Aria Hamilton-Petrie, 8 (left front), and her children Cody, 11

(left rear), Sienna, 8, Aston, 13 and Carter, 5, in front of the Waste Management Ltd site.

PREBBLETON mother Angela

Jones is disappointed a waste

treatment plant near her home

isn’t regarded as a problem by

health authorities.

Mrs Jones is one of nearly

3000 people who have signed an

online petition over Waste Management

Ltd’s plan to expand its

facility on Marshs Rd.

“We have four children and it

is concerning because we don’t

have clear facts. We don’t know

exactly what chemicals they will

be working with, she said.

“The application has not been

transparent and we have been

denied a democratic voice in the

decision-making process.”

Canterbury District Health

Board medical officer of health

Dr Ramon Pink said its community

and public health unit

raised concerns regarding the

proximity of the proposed

operation to the Prebbleton

community with Environment

Canterbury.

“Given Prebbleton has had

historical issues with another

private operation generating

odour, the community was likely

to have concerns.

“However, the assessment of

environmental effects included

a range of details which if managed

as outlined, should mitigate

any community concerns.”

Mrs Jones said she is disappointed

with the health board’s

response.

“It’s disappointing because it is

such a huge risk to take on such a

large amount of people in the area.

“We don’t want to be guinea

pigs and I don’t want them doing

a report in 20 years time and

finding out the Prebbleton community

has high rates of cancer

or something because it could

have been stopped,” she said.

Mrs Jones lives 680m from the

proposed site with her four children,

Aston 13, Cody, 11, Sienna,

8, and Carter, 5.

Three of the children go to

Prebbleton School and one is

starting Lincoln High School

this year.

Waste Management Ltd was

granted resource consent for

the treatment and stabilisation

plant operation covering issues

such as noise, traffic and hours

of operation by the Christchurch

City Council in December 2018.

for construction and discharge

of stormwater in March 2019.

The consent application currently

with ECan is only for

activities resulting in discharge

to air.

It ran a limited notified

consent process which meant

only those within 500m of the

proposed facility had a chance to

have their say.

The plan has prompted a

major backlash from nearby

Prebbleton residents who are

calling for wider consultation.

A public meeting has been

planned for tonight and residents

will make a strategy going

forward.

Prebbleton businessman

Hamish Prebble was within the

500m limited notification and

has made a submission against

the facility.

He said one of his biggest issues

is the lack of credible detail in the

resource consent application.

“Waste Management has the

contract to handle and dispose

of any pesticides, herbicides,

fungicides and any other substances

collected through the

Christchurch Recovery Centre.

“It has the potential to include

all chemicals from A-Z. How

could they guarantee they could

mitigate any potential risks?” he

said.

An ECan spokesman said they

have sought further information

from Waste Management Ltd for

the application.

It includes an assessment of

emissions of toxic compounds

from the site, limits on

the number of pesticides

to be processed and a site

management plan.

Families upset

with closure

of playground

• By Devon Bolger

TEMPORARY closure of the

Foster Park playground is

upsetting families.

The playground was closed on

Monday to install a new tube

slide and will reopen on Tuesday,

February 11.

The district council posted on

its Facebook page saying: “We’ll

also be doing other cleaning and

maintenance while the park is

closed. Thanks for your patience

while we get this new equipment

in and improve the playground.’’

Residents responded by

saying the timing of the repairs

during the school holidays was

unsuitable.

One commenter said: “Crazy,

wait for the schools to start.”

Another responded: “Why

couldn’t the repairs be done

when the children are all back at

school?”

Selwyn Central councillor Sophie

McInnes said she thinks the

work has been held off for as long

as it could be.

“I know they have been waiting

a long time for the slide to come

back in after it was damaged.

“It’s probably never going to be

ideal, I mean the slide has been

closed for ages and the kids have

been missing that,” she said.

Cr McInnes said, thankfully,

there are a lot of other

playgrounds around the district

for people to enjoy.

“You just have to do a bit of

exploring.”

The tube slide was temporarily

closed for repairs in September

after cracks were found in the

plastic.

“Increased use of the slide

over the school holidays also had

the potential to accelerate the

damage and increase the safety

risk. Contractors have been

monitoring the slide daily since,”

a district council spokesperson

said.

Crafts to help injured animals

HUNDREDS OF fabric pouches,

nests, mittens and other items

will be helping injured and

orphaned animals.

District council senior arts,

culture and lifelong learning coordinator

Hayley Browne said

there was a huge response to the

Selwyn Libraries’ offer of patterns

and the use of its resources

for the public to make items for

animals affected by the Australian

fires.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by

the response locally and nationally.

We’ve had people from all

over the country contact us to

help.”

Springston children Jemma and Cody Lamotte

attended the first of the district council’s annual

picnic in the park events in Springston on

Thursday.

About 80 people attended and was the first

of eight community events held as part of the

Summer in Selwyn series of activities.

District council events and recreation coordinator

Lauren Robb said musician Holly

Kimber entertained the crowd. Many of the

children had their faces painted for free while

balloon creations of Silly Milly the clown,

Pedalmania, a bouncy castle and free sausage

sizzle were all enjoyed.

Community building is a big part of what makes

the picnics popular in each area, Ms Robb said.

“Every year when we talk to people about why

they enjoy the picnics, a sense of belonging is

always high on people’s responses. They talk

about the opportunity to get to speak to new

people and family togetherness from the picnics.

We run them in the smaller towns around the

district and they always enjoy that sense of

community.”

The remaining picnic in the park events will be

held across the district throughout summer.

Janie Porter

Art, landscape, seascape and birds

have always filled Janie’s life. She

painted and drew from when she was

old enough to hold a pencil or brush.

As a child she would watch the trees

and sky through the schoolroom

window when she should have been

listening to the teacher. The rolling

hills and countryside coloured her

childhood in England, where she often

spent time rescuing and nurturing

birds that had fallen out of nests or

had broken wings. Aged eight she saw

Cornwall for the first time – the cliffs,

the sea, the wheeling gulls took her

breath away.

Janie attended art school extramurally

while still at high school.

In her early twenties, travelling the

hippie trail from London to Kathmandu

1 February - 3 March 2020

she met and fell in love with a Kiwi.

When she came with him to his

home she fell in love again, this time

with the taonga of New Zealand, the

ocean, the native birds, the mountains

and the wilderness.

About twenty years ago her friend

Galina Kim who was an art mentor to

Janie encouraged her to start using a

palette knife. She never looked back.

Janie studied at the University of Fine

Arts in Vietnam in 2005 and there she

fused her use of palette knife and love

of NZ landscape with layers and layers

of pigment and lacquer.

Now she lives on Banks Peninsula/

Horomaka and spends her days

absorbing and painting the wonder

and beauty of her surroundings.

Observing and reflecting. Sea and birds and land. Walking,

exploring, wondering at its beauty.

Celebrating once again the incredible work of our conservationists.

Little River Gallery February 1 – March 3

Little River Gallery open 7 days, Main Road, Akaroa Highway.

More than 250 items have

been made in or collected by the

libraries and are being stored

ready to transport to wherever

they are needed.

The idea came after library

staff saw the response online

from people wanting to support

the Animal Rescue Craft Guild’s

work and decided to offer the

space and resources for them

to help out in some way, Ms

Browne said.

“Any items which aren’t

needed in Australia will be

donated to other animal welfare

groups who have a need for

them.”

Welcome for

newcomers

recognised

SELWYN HAS become one of

the first places in the country to

be recognised as a welcoming

community for its efforts to

support newcomers to the region.

The district council was one of

10 councils to gain accreditation

as a ‘Welcoming Community’ by

Immigration New Zealand.

The accreditation recognises

councils and communities that

value newcomers, and their work

to build welcoming and inclusive

communities.

It gives access to further funding,

support and advice.

Over the past two years, figures

from the district council’s

monthly citizenship ceremonies

alone show Selwyn has welcomed

588 people from 56 nationalities

around the world ranging from

South Africa and India to Cambodia,

Uzbekistan and Iceland.

Mayor Sam Broughton says

the accreditation recognises the

hard work the district council and

community are putting into being

a welcoming place.

“We have many lovely people in

our district who have moved from

all over New Zealand and around

the world. Helping one another

feel at home here in Selwyn is important

to us and we will continue

to implement and support these

type of initiatives,” he said.

Firefighters give back

ROLLESTON firefighters

banded together to give blood

last week.

Chief fire officer Cam Kenyon

said 24 of their members, their

partners and wives, donated

blood at the Rolleston Community

Centre on Tuesday.

“We get so much support, so

this is our way of giving back.

To give somebody a chance to

live, or to fight a disease with our

blood,” he said.

A few of the firefighters have

also chosen to give plasma and

some decided to go on the world

bone marrow transplant register.

Now they have issued a challenge

to the other local fire

brigades.

“We put a challenge out to you

to do the same. Donate blood,

plasma, or go on the bone marrow

transplant register.

“The NZ blood service is in

need of all of this, so let’s get the

challenge going.”

It follows the Rolleston fire brigade

being named the third busiest

volunteer station in the country for

call-outs last year.

INSPIRED: Rolleston

firefighters collectively

gave blood last week

and are challenging other

stations to do the same. ​

They attended 562 callouts

during 2019, with medical incidents

being the most common

with 194.

Mr Kenyon said: “We are

known as a first responder

brigade so we don’t just go to the

cardiac arrests and things, we do

anything an ambulance would

do if there isn’t one available in

the area.”

firefighters did? Email your

The native leafroller

MOTHS THAT are bell-shaped

when resting are known as

leafrollers or Tortricidae.

There are several species of

leafrollers in New Zealand, some

of which are significant in terms

of fruit production including the

light brown apple moth and the

green-headed and the brownheaded

leafrollers.

The latter, Ctenopseustis

obliquana, is a native species

more commonly found in the

North Island, but is also present

in South Island.

The brown-headed leafroller

has a wingspan of 25mm and

is brown in colour with darker

markings on the middle front of

its forewing.

Larvae feed on a large variety

of hosts that include kiwifruit,

gum, oak, wattle, pine, larch,

spruce and Douglas fir. Larvae

feed on leaves, buds and stems

whilst protected by a web pouch

made of vegetation.

The caterpillars are translucent

green or yellow and reach

20mm in length when fully

grown. Depending on the local

temperatures, this species can

have up to four generations per

year.

Leeston-Southbridge

knocked off top spot

SPORT

Wins for leading

• By Jacob Page

DEFENDING champions

Leeston-Southbridge have lost

their lead in the Canterbury

Country premier 45-over

competition after losing their

top-of-the-table match with

Oxford on Saturday.

A brutal 110 off 78 balls from

all-rounder Tim Gruijters was

not enough as Oxford reached

their 270-run target with three

wickets and eight balls to spare.

Leeston-Southbridge suffered

their second consecutive defeat

and were leap-frogged by Oxford

on the table with three rounds

to go.

Half centuries to opener Calvin

Scott (72) and an unbeaten 52

from wicket-keeper David Fulton

got the hosts home.

In other matches, third place

Cheviot kept in touch with the

leaders thanks to a commanding

183-run win over fourth-placed

Southbrook.

Half centuries to Will Smith

(85), Chris Burnett (56) and

Henry Workman (50) helped

Cheviot to 269/6.

Southbrook were never in the

run-chase and were bowled out

for 86 in reply.

Weedons dented fifth-placed

Sefton’s slim chances of making

the top four thanks to a 98-run

Weedons made 244 all out

with opener Todd Inness scoring

65 to anchor the innings.

Sefton could only muster 146

all out in the 33rd over with

James Richards and Devon

Nightingale each taking three

wickets.

Darfield lifted themselves to

mid-table with a confidence-boosting

58-run win over Lincoln.

Jesse Frew led the way with 60

for the hosts at Darfield Domain

as they made 234/8.

Frew then turned hero with the

ball taking five for 22 as Lincoln

were bowled out for 176.

There are three rounds remaining

Foster Park

changing rooms open

Sport at Foster Park had a boost on the weekend with the opening of the new Foster Park

changing rooms.

The changing rooms in the southwest corner of the park hosted their first event, the Rolleston

Nines Rugby League tournament on the weekend, ahead of a busy sport schedule this year.

The $1.4 million project will transform that corner of the park, improving the opportunities for

sports teams and the public to use the fields, Council Major Projects’ Manager John Reid says.

“The use of the fields at the southwestern corner of Foster Park required changing rooms and

public toilets to get the best use out of them. The facility increases access for the public to

use that space, and it will make a big difference for sports like rugby in the winter and softball

and touch in the summer to have facilities they can use for tournaments, regular weekend

competition and training.”

The building is the next stage in ongoing development of the park. It has six changing rooms

and two rooms for match officials and can accommodate up to 140 people. It has six public

toilets that will be open to the public 24 hours a day, two of which are accessible and have baby

change facilities.

Upcoming projects in the park will include an 80 space car park to be added off Dynes Road to be

installed in the next six months and the construction of the eight court indoor courts facility due to

open in time for the winter 2021 season.

The Council is also working on the relocation of the Rolleston Rugby Football Club clubrooms

from Rolleston Reserve to Foster Park adjacent to the new changing rooms.

Selwyn recognised as

welcoming community

Selwyn has become one of the first places in the country to be

recognised as a welcoming community for its efforts to support

newcomers to the region.

The Council was one of 10 that were the first in country to

gain accreditation as a ‘Welcoming Community’ by Immigration

New Zealand.

The accreditation recognises councils and communities that value

newcomers, and their work to build welcoming and inclusive

communities. It gives access to further funding, support and advice.

At its citizenship ceremonies over the past two years, Selwyn has

welcomed 588 people from 56 nationalities around the world.

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says the accreditation recognises

the hard work the Council and community is putting into being a

welcoming place.

“We have many lovely people and families in our district who have

moved from all over New Zealand and around the world. Helping

one another feel at home here in Selwyn is important to us and we

will continue to implement and support these types of initiatives.”

Those initiatives include Selwyn Libraries offering access to

online English and other language learning systems and hosting

programmes for newcomers and long-term residents to connect.

The Council and Christchurch Multicultural Council also run the

annual CultureFest event where migrants and New Zealanders share

food, performances and crafts.

More initiatives are on the way in 2020, such as Chinese lanterns

and Chinese New Year storytimes at Selwyn Libraries to celebrate

the New Year festival.

The Council is working alongside Immigration New Zealand to

provide information for businesses who employ, or are looking to

employ people from overseas.

For the first time, there will be a new award category at this year’s

Selwyn Awards in August for businesses that accommodate people

facing additional barriers, such as moving from another country, in

their business plan.

What happens to a lost dog?

Selwyn is home to a lot of dogs, over 14,200 in fact. And sometimes they like to go walkabouts – that’s

where our Animal Control team come in.

If you find a wandering dog, we encourage you to call us on 0800 Selwyn (0800 735 996) and let us

know. That way our friendly Animal Control team can come over and scan the dog for a microchip.

Most of the time this allows us to find the owner and take the lost dog home.

If we can’t locate the owner through a microchip we’ll take the dog

to our pound facility and work on finding the owner through other

ways, which usually works out well and ends in the dog being

taken home safely. If we can’t find the owner after seven days we

then look to rehome the dog either through private adoption or

through DogWatch.

This calendar year, 67 dogs were taken to our pound, of those dogs

we returned 59 to their owners. After not being able to locate the

owners, seven were rehomed and unfortunately due to aggression

and safety issues one had to be euthanized.

Our team work hard to return all Selwyn dogs back to their owners,

or into safe new homes. You can help by ensuring your dogs are

microchipped, so if they do go for a wander we can get them home

safely to you.

Council services Waitangi Day

On Thursday 6 February some Council services will be closed or unavailable due to the Waitangi Day

public holiday.

The Council offices in Rolleston, all Selwyn Libraries, Rolleston Community Centre, West Melton

Community and Recreation Centre and Lincoln Event Centre will be closed. The Selwyn Aquatic

Centre will be open from 8am–8pm, Sheffield, Southbridge and Darfield pools will be open from 1–7pm

With the hotter, dryer weather here we’re encouraging people to use water wisely to avoid water restrictions.

Although there are no formal water restrictions in place at present, we’re continuing to review water use

throughout summer. If demand for water increases, formal water restrictions may be introduced.

When to water your lawn

Don’t irrigate

Between 6–9am or 4–9pm daily.

Check weather conditions

before watering

While there are no water restrictions at this time, we

recommend you check weather conditions before

watering. Watering your lawn during the middle of the

day during hot days, or when a nor’ west is blowing

results in a lot of water evaporating and watering in these

conditions is not recommended. Watering on a cooler,

overcast day is a better option as this provides the best

opportunity for water to soak into your lawn or garden.

Irrigate wisely

Total fire ban in place for Selwyn

A prohibited fire season is now in place for Selwyn.

Fire and Emergency New Zealand announced the new restrictions from Friday 24 January for Selwyn,

Waimakariri, Hurunui and Christchurch.

This means that no fires will be permitted during this time unless it is an approved fire type. People

can check approved fire types by calling Fire and Emergency New Zealand on 0800 658 628 or at

checkitsalright.nz, where you can also find tips on keeping your property safe.

All permits that were previously issued are suspended until the prohibited season is lifted.

With dry conditions set to continue, residents and visitors are urged to make sure they stay fire safe this

summer. Please take care when undertaking any activities which could cause sparks including using

machinery and lawn mowing.

On the roads this week

Tennyson Street between Markham Way and Moore Street is one-way, open to southbound

traffic only. Pavement seal repairs are taking place on Leeston Dunsandel and Wards Road.

Traffic management will be in place. NZTA has advised that Hoskyns Road is left in and left

out only at Main South Road. The Weedons Interchange is now fully open and Berketts Road is open

for left turn in (southbound) traffic only from Main South Road. Please follow all on-site signage.

Fitzsimon shuns Olympic

bid for the time being

• By Jacob Page

WEST MELTON’S Tegan

Fitzsimon has decided not to

have a tilt at a potential Olympic

berth in Las Vegas with her horse

Windermere Cappuccino this

year.

The 29-year-old will now see

out the New Zealand season and

look at competing in Australia in

winter instead.

Fitzsimon and her nine-yearold

horse won the FEI New Zealand

World Cup equestrian series

three weeks ago and earned the

right to compete in the world

final in Las Vegas in April.

The duo were on the long list

for Olympic selection for Tokyo

in July and August and Fitzsimon

was the only New Zealandbased

rider to be considered to

make the team.

“After much thought, I have

decided not to take Windermere

Cappuccino (Vollie) overseas to

campaign these opportunities

any further.

“It is a decision that has not

come easily. However at this

point in time I feel like it is not

the correct decision in the best

interests of myself or Vollie.

“I look forward to finishing

the season here in New Zealand

and then planning an easier step

across the Tasman mid-winter as

a starting point,” she said.

The trip to Vegas and then an

international campaign in the

hopes of an Olympic berth would

have meant Vollie would have

been sold overseas and would not

have returned to New Zealand.

Competing in events in

Australia over winter would

still give both horse and rider

international experience but

also Fitzsimon would be able to

return home with Vollie, a horse

which she part-owns.

Fitzsimon said future Olympic

campaigns were still a possibility

and she did not think this would

be her only chance.

SOFTBALLER Jacob Davidson is

the lone Canterbury face named

in the Junior Black Sox squad for

next month’s under-18 World

Cup in Palmerston North.

The 16-year-old, who plays

baseball for Selwyn as a

pitcher said he was surprised

by the call-up.

“There’s been a lot of

work that has gone in

behind the scenes so to

make it in this team for

the first time is great.”

The event begins on

February 22, with the

Junior Black Sox opening

the tournament

against Japan, the silver

medallist at the last World Cup.

The final will be played on

March 1.

Jacob is also a national representative

in baseball as a pitcher,

he says juggling both sports has

mostly a positive impact on his

play.

“When I’m catching (in

softball) I’m still working with

the pitchers on calling a game

and working out what pitches

to throw, just like I would be if I

was pitching in baseball.

“It does mean I don’t get

many days off.”

Canty player selected in

Jacob focuses on softball on

Monday, Wednesday and Saturday

and switches to baseball for

his Selwyn club on a Thursday

and Sunday.

Twelve teams from around the

world will compete in the weeklong

World Cup event.

Fellow Cantabrians

Hunter Simpson and

Kotiti Patea will be nontravelling

reserves.

Coach Thomas Makea

said he was excited by

the talent on show.

“We have set goals

and observed these

athletes over the past

Jacob 12 months, which

Davidson culminated at the justcompleted

under-18

nationals.

“They displayed their skills, but

also a lot of enthusiasm, passion

and intensity to their games,

which is something that the

management team was pleased

to see.

“We have selected a wellbalanced

squad with a lot of

these players able to play multiple

positions which helps in the

make-up of the defence. The

team will be working hard over

the next few weeks so they are

well prepared to take on the

world.”

Modern Cloth Nappies Made Easy.

Premium. Eco. Stylish.

We have always been a

conscious family of waste,

the environment, recycling,

re-use, the list goes on.

After our first child was

born, we were frankly shocked

at waste we were producing,

how can one tiny human

create so much poop and dirty

nappies?!! It couldn’t go on.

Plans and designs went in the

making for a nappy that is functional,

stylish, premium and makes cloth easy

to use without the bulk. Fluffy Ducks was

born. Literally and Figuratively, our second

son was soon born, he had a lot of hair

which stuck up on end and the name

‘fluffy duck’ stuck.

Fluffy Ducks is 100% owned in New Zealand

with the prints hand selected and designed

by us. Our stock is ethically sourced and

made offshore using premium, baby

soft bamboo and organic cotton.

Only the best for our little ducks.

Fluffy Ducks was born with a

mission to bring back cloth.

Making it easy while bringing

joy, style and a little sass into

the chaos that is known as

parenthood.

• Save up to $3000 by using cloth nappies

• Save 1.2 tonnes going to landfill per child

• If every parent in New Zealand used just 1 cloth

nappy a day, we would save 1 million disposables

going to landfill each week

• Use our nappies from birth to toilet trained

• Can be used for more than one child

plenty of natural resources, large trees

(attracting bird life) and providing

natural shade and an earthy colour

palette throughout. We have organic

gardens, chickens that lay eggs,

rabbits, guinea pigs and budgies. Our

pets are a part of our centre family.

SeatSmart Recycling

Programme

Free

child restraint

checks and installation

Volunteer NZTA trained child restraint technicians are available

to help Selwyn residents install and check children’s car seats.

Advice can also be given on:

· Rear and forward facing seats

· Booster seats and harnesses

· Locking clips and tether straps

Visit Facebook to find out dates and

locations for our monthly clinics.

SelwynCarSeatChampions

Proudly supported by

The SeatSmart recycling

programme is removing

potentially unsafe child car

seats from circulation and

making journeys safer.

The Council partnered with Seatsmart

in March 2016 to have old car seats

recycled at a heavily subsidised rate.

186 car seats have been dropped off

at the Pines Resource Recovery Park

which equals 651 kg of plastic and

93 kg of metal being diverted from

landfill.

Selwyn residents can take their

unwanted car seats to the Pines

Resource Recovery Park for a $15

charge (normally $25).

The seats are dismantled through

social enterprise groups or

Department of Corrections community

work programmes. The recovered

plastic is recycled into products for the

building industry, metal parts are taken

to metal recyclers, and the harnesses

will be used by Karkt NZ and The

Green Collective who make handmade

bags.

Selwyn School Road Safety

Coordinator Stephanie Hautler says all

car seats have an expiry date on them

and over time seats can be damaged

from UV light, heat, general wear and

tear or in a crash. Residents can find

information about how to check a

seat’s expiry date at www.seatsmart.

co.nz. Locally, the Council has trained a

number of volunteers as child restraint

technicians who check car seat safety

and install seats for free. Further

information is available on the Selwyn

Car Seat Champions Facebook page.

Booster and convertible seats can

be recycled through the recycling

programme, along with capsules, but

polystyrene seats are not part of the

programme.

The Pines Resource Recovery Park

is located at 183 Burnham School

Road and is open Monday to Friday,

9am-4.30pm, and from 10am-4pm on

Give your child the best

possible start

If you’re looking for an early education centre for your child,

enrolling with The Cat’s Pyjamas in Rolleston or West Melton

could give your little one a head start.

The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool and Nursery

are amongst the top 10% of all early

childhood services in New Zealand, an

achievement that early childhood teacher

and owner-operator, Tracy Summerfield, is

excited about.

Both our Rolleston and West Melton

centres achieved a “Very Well Placed” 4

year review from the Education Review

Office (ERO) last year. Our teachers always

work incredibly hard, and it’s nice to be

rewarded with that validation”, says Tracy

who runs The Cat’s Pyjamas with her

husband, Gavin.

We focus on quality education and care.

All our teachers are qualified in early

childhood education and registered.

Our purpose-built facilities and spacious

outdoor areas have been designed to meet

the development needs of young children.

With excellent teacher to child ratios, The

Cat’s Pyjamas instils a culture of kindness

and respect and creates a welcoming

environment where children blossom and

families feel included.

“We’ve had wonderful support from the

local communities since opening 11 years

ago in Rolleston and eight years ago in

West Melton, and we’re starting to see

siblings come through too. We believe

in constant learning and investing in

professional development and plan to stay

at the forefront of early childhood research,

to keep improving and to do the best we

possibly can for our children,” says Tracy.

15 immune boosting foods

for toddlers & pre-schoolers

Help toddlers and pre-schoolers stay

healthy and beat those bugs over the

winter months.

There are no miracle cures to starve off winter colds

and flu, however by eating a range of essential

nutrients all year round from a variety of foods, it can

help boost your toddler’s or pre-schooler’s immune

system and shorten their recovery time when they

get sick or start feeling run down.

1. Berries. Berries are full of antioxidants to help

keep your toddler’s or pre-schooler’s immune

systems fighting fit! And if fresh berries aren’t in

season, try using frozen ones instead. Berries are

great for eating on their own or adding to smoothies.

2. Broccoli. Broccoli might not be a favourite

amongst toddlers and pre-schoolers, but it’s no

secret that broccoli is a nutritional powerhouse. It’s

got a number of immune system boosters, including

vitamins C, A and E and a number of antioxidants.

3. Eggs. Research has shown that when a person

is low in vitamin D, they are more susceptible to

illness. Eggs are one of the only foods with naturally

occurring vitamin D. They also include a number of

other immune-boosting nutrients for your toddler or

pre-schooler, such as B vitamins and selenium.

4. Garlic. Garlic has antibacterial and antioxidant

properties that help maintain your toddler’s or preschooler’s

general health and wellbeing. Adding

garlic to their diet can help reduce the severity and

duration of their colds and flu.

5. Ginger. Ginger This has anti-inflammatory

properties which can help to relieve symptoms and

reduce the duration of colds and flu for your toddler

or pre-schooler. Use it in stir-fries or grate it up and

add it to their smoothies for some extra ‘zing’.

6. Kiwifruit. Kiwifruits are one of the richest sources

of vitamin C. Vitamin C is also found in many fruits

(such as blackcurrants, oranges, strawberries and

blueberries) and vegetables (such as red capsicum,

leafy green vegetables and sprouts) and is wellknown

for its immune-boosting capacity.

7. Leafy green vegetables. Leafy green vegetables

are rich in phytochemicals and provide your toddler

or pre-schooler with a valuable source of vitamin E.

Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant to protect children’s

body cells from damage.

8. Legumes Chickpeas, beans and lentils. These

are all high in fibre and are also a good source of

iron. They act as natural ‘immune boosters’ in your

toddler’s or pre-schooler’s body. They can easily

be stirred into bolognaise sauce or stews to help

disguise them, or how about making your own

humus with chickpeas?

9. Lean red meat. Lean red meat is rich in iron and

zinc and keeps your toddler’s or pre-schooler’s

immune system fighting fit. Iron from animal foods

such as red meat, chicken, fish and pork is better

absorbed by your body than plant sources of iron.

10. Nuts and seeds. Nuts and seeds contain

phytochemicals, vitamin E and fibre. Fibre is

essential for good health. It helps keep your toddler’s

or pre-schooler’s bowel in good balance and their

immune system strong.

11. Oats. Oats contain beta-glucan, a component of

fibre that activates killer cells. These are the cells

that fight bacteria, viruses, and other intruders in

your kid’s bodies.

12. Oily fish. Salmon and other deep sea oily fish

such as sardines are a super source of omega-3 fatty

acids. These not only help to ensure healthy brain

development in young kids, they also have antiinflammatory

and immune-boosting properties to

help ward off sickness and fight infections.

‘Tell me I forget, show me I remember, involve me I understand.’

– Carl Orff

“Since the beginning of time, children have not liked to study.

They would much rather play, and if you have their interests at heart

you will let them learn while they play. They will find what they have

mastered is child’s play. – Carl Orff

Five top family

pets

Unique Country

Environment

The simple but profound

truth that inspired Maria

Montessori’s lifelong pursuit

of educational reform was that

children teach themselves.

At Burnham Country Montessori

teachers help to cultivate each

child’s natural love of learning and

inquisitiveness, facilitating children in

developing a complete personality

which allows them to become

independent learners.

When children fully engage with their

learning the experiences become

more memorable, helping lay down

the foundations for school life ahead.

At Burnham Country Montessori,

children have enriching encounters

in an extremely unique and spacious

country setting. The children learn

about the world around them, enjoying

country walks and connecting and

caring for animals; feeding lambs,

chickens and pigs.

The large open and well-resourced

playgrounds at Burnham Country

Montessori have native plantings,

vegetable and flower gardens, and

large decked areas for the children

and their family/whānau to enjoy.

Bright, fun and well-resourced

classrooms offer the opportunity for

structure that supports focussed

educational, emotional, and physical

development. Burnham Country

Montessori is celebrating its 11-year

anniversary this April. They are located

just a short distance from Rolleston,

Burnham Military Camp and Lincoln.

Their open door policy means you

can feel comfortable calling by to

see this inspiring preschool. You can

also check out their website at: www.

burnham-montessori.co.nz

Pets can help children develop

emotions such as caring and

empathy, says Dr Hugh Wirth,

author of Living with Cats and

Living with Dogs. Pets also

offer the benefit of teaching

children how to care for their

pets.

“The greatest lesson from pet keeping

is that animals are much like us,”

he says. “They respond to our care,

require food, water and shelter and

also need regular grooming and clean

living conditions.” He adds, ‘A pet

needs gentle handling, as an animal

can feel pain as we do, and acts

adversely to those who accidentally or

knowingly inflict pain – biting, kicking

or crying.”

1. Small dogs

While many dog lovers and vets

advise buying a labrador as a family

pet, Dr Wirth advises choosing a

smaller breed for your first dog. He

says big dogs and aren’t easy for

children to learn handling techniques

or grooming. “For the first ‘learning

dog’ he suggests one of the crossbred

types like a fluffy Maltese or shih-tzu.

He adds that a breed of terrier would

also suit a family with children over the

age of five.

2. Cats

If you lack space for a dog, a feline

friend is a great second option,

particularly for apartment dwellers.

Dr Wirth adds that they’re also lowmaintenance

animals – meaning less

work for mum and dad. “Cats make

excellent pets,” he says. “They’re selfsufficient,

clean and highly adaptable

to living conditions”. Dr Wirth also

advises choosing a kitten over a fully

grown cat for littlies to bond with.

3. Rabbits

Rabbits are better suited to older

children. “Rabbits make great first pets

but they certainly are not as tough as

a cat or dog,” says Dr Wirth. “They’re

easily damaged by rough handling, so

always choose a small breed for young

children, so they don’t accidentally

drop them.” He adds that rabbits must

be confined to a hutch at night and

in inclement weather, so there has to

be a commitment to clean the hutch

daily.”

4. Guinea pigs

If you’re unsure whether your little one

can handle a rabbit, go for a guinea pig

instead. “Guinea pigs are very hardy

pets and are much easier to handle

than rabbits,” says Dr Wirth. “They need

to be kept in a hutch and can be kept

together with rabbits.”

5. Goldfish

“Fish are also good starter pets, but

the cold water varieties of goldfish are

easier to maintain than tropical breeds,”

advises Dr Wirth, adding that filtering

and cleaning the water regularly is an

on-going task. He adds that while kids

will love to feed their fish, be careful to

teach them that too many flakes will

harm their pet. “Overfeeding causes

pollution of the water,” he confirms.

Here at Giggles and Scribbles we believe

our job is not just to prepare children

intellectually for school but also, and

perhaps more importantly, to develop them

emotionally and socially. We aim to work

alongside Whanau to help develop and instil

solid moral values that prepare children to be

thoughtful, kind and to develop empathy.

Our philosophy focuses on providing children

with the skills and tools to play with and

alongside other children; to be able to

make friends and retain them, valuing the

enrichment of friendships. We believe in

the value of teaching children to be kind,

empathic and to have the ability to selfregulate

their emotions. We focus on grace

and courtesy, role modelling, respect and

good manners. We have found that providing

boundaries and setting clear expectations

help children to feel safe and secure.

Giggles and Scribbles foster an inclusiveness

environment and welcome children and staff

from different cultures from around the globe,

currently embracing 17 different ethnicities

attending our centre. We are privileged to

be able to learn about and celebrate with

families about their multi-cultural heritage

and value the many different diversities

within our preschool whanau.

We weave values such as loyalty,

perseverance, independence and

inclusiveness into our curriculum, believing

them to be as equally important as providing

a varied, stimulating and well prepared

learning environment.

We value our special relationships made

with our Local Primary Schools, aligning

our children’s values and expectations so

they experience a successful and enjoyable

transition from preschool to school. Our in

house transition to school programme, caters

for children over 4 years of age, ensuring

they are well equipped with the necessary

skills to successfully continue their learning

journey at school.

Effective communication is critical for

collaborative relationships between home

and the centre. Individual learning goals are

set regularly for every child in partnership

with parents. Monthly learning stories are

provided alongside comprehensive reports

which will provide parents with a precise

understanding of where their child is at on

their learning journey. It could be that they

are developing the ability to take turns, build

friendships or it could be that they have

shown an interest in identifying letters in

the alphabet.

We need critical thinkers. Children who can

think outside of the box. They are our future

entrepreneurs! At Giggles and Scribbles we

believe it’s important to provide a balance

of equipment and resources that challenge

the thought process of children. Some of our

equipment and resources have a specific and

intentional outcome. Children gain a sense

of achievement and accomplishment from

completing the activity, progressing their

learning forward. It’s equally important to

provide children with open ended resources

to enable constructive play opportunities.

Children need to be children! We believe in

having fun, getting dirty and exploring with

every element of their senses. We know that

by the time they leave Giggles and Scribbles

they are emotionally sound, respectful,

polite and have an enquiring mind that

loves to learn.

A Natural and

Sustainable

Environment

At Whippersnappers, embracing a

sense of curiosity, fun, nurturing and

collaboration are the key values that

underpin our philosophy.

As a teaching team, we believe ‘we teach

who we are’, which is why you will see

teachers down at the children’s level,

building sandcastles, reading books,

sharing their musical talents or getting

messy and creative with the children.

We believe for children to learn values,

respect and kindness towards others

they need a well supported purposefully

prepared environment. To have the

freedom to explore, play, make mistakes

and take risks, where the only boundaries

are safety.

Primary caregiving forms the basis

of our practice across all age groups.

Each child that joins our centre has an

assigned ‘key teacher’ who through

reciprocal relationships becomes your

child’s expert within our centre. Their

role includes nurturing their emotional

well-being while supporting them with

their learning and development. Having

a strong sense of belonging creates an

environment where children are able

to actively learn through their play and

exploration.

The natural environment and

sustainability are both important aspects

of our programme. At Whippersnappers

you will find large, natural outdoor play

Celebrate Children’s Day

in Rolleston

This year the Selwyn Parenting Network is

celebrating Children’s Day 2020 at Foster Park

in Rolleston on Sunday 1 March, from 12pm to

3pm.

Children’s Day, Te rā o ngā Tamariki, is a great way to

celebrate and give time to children.

Throughout the country, in March, families and

communities come together to celebrate and nurture the

children of New Zealand. Each year, there are hundreds of

Children’s Day events being celebrated in neighbourhoods

– some big and some small.

This is one event to put in your diary as the committed

team from Selwyn Parenting Network bring you three

action packed hours of TOTALLY FREE FUN, laughter,

activities and games for the whole family! Entertainment

includes bouncy castles, pony rides, farmyard friends,

children’s road safety team, emergency services displays,

pedalmania recycled bikes, balloon twisting, face painting,

food stalls and much more.

For more information about Children’s Day 2020, visit: www.

childrensday.org.nz

5 Fun Activities to help your

children celebrate Children’s Day

1. Have a Children’s Day Colours. Day Pick one or more

of the Children’s Day colours and have a colour day! The

Children’s Day colours are grass green, deep purple,

orange and yellow. Have fun with the colour by wearing

it, eating food of that colour, and naming as many things

around you that are the same colour.

2. 3D Pictures. Ask children to draw a picture with crayons

with the theme ‘things I like to do with my family’. Then use

miscellaneous decorations to make it 3-D, eg glue fabric

scraps onto the person for clothes, tear up green paper for

a tree, glue popcorn kernels to fill in a sun, etc. Encourage

children to use their imagination.

3. Grandparents’ morning or afternoon tea. Encourage

children to help make invitations to their grandparents for

a grandparents’ morning or afternoon tea. Ask around for

borrowed items such as tablecloths, teapots, etc, anything

you can think of to make it special. Encourage children to

help prepare tasty food and decorate the room (set tables,

etc). Ask grandparents to tell stories about their childhood

and teach the children a game they used to play.

4. Friendship Paper Quilt. Cut several squares of brightly

coloured cardboard. Give each child one of the squares.

Have them decorate the square or even glue a picture of

themselves, glitter, beads, sequins, wool etc to the square.

Staple the squares, side by side to make a ‘quilt’ and hang

it up.

5. Handprints. Explain to children that everybody’s

handprint is unique. You could get children to make

handprints with paint, then cut them out to make a

number of picture displays. For example, you could make

a handprint tree (with handprints for leaves) or a handprint

wreath, or a handprint placemat. If you don’t want to get

messy you could just trace around their hands, cut them

out and decorate.

A place to grow..

“It’s all about quality care and education,

where tamariki are free to run, have fun,

burn energy and just be kids” is the key

for learning at Paradise for Little Angels

in Rolleston.

Owners Marianna and Michael Inch say:

‘The main focus is on our central beliefs

that infants and young children are free

and equal human beings who need time,

space and the right environment in

which to unfold, and in which to develop

a healthy sense of who they are as

individuals and valued members of our

society. This means that the values of

peace, curiosity, creativity, unconditional

love, respectful practice, kindness and

beauty are non-negotiable.’

Marianna believes ‘There is NO bad

weather only bad clothing.’ The outdoor

environment and outdoor play are

crucial to the development of a healthy

body, mind and spirit. I believe in

the importance of children actively

engaging in risky play, which builds their

character and self respect to go beyond

their normal realms. The children are

free and encouraged to

play outside at any time

and in all weathers. In our

beautiful setting children can

connect with nature through

our outdoor play areas, with

gardens and trees.

The teachers are our most

important asset. All our

teachers are carefully chosen,

ensuring they have the special

qualities needed to nurture

and care for children while facilitating

learning. They model peaceful

communication and create a calm,

loving place to grow. They support

each child’s unfolding interests and

passions, believing that the child is

the initiator of their own learning.

If you want your child to explore

nature at its best, experiencing trees

and adventure gardens, water slides,

and have your 4 year old experience a

sleepover at preschool, feel free to have

a look at Paradise for Little Angels.

Fairies in the

forest

McHughes Forest Park has

a new attraction for children

– a fairy wonderland with

signposts and fairy doors just

waiting to be discovered.

The forest is a wonderful maze of

tracks for walkers and cyclists located

on the edge of Darfield.

Bellbirds serenade visitors, while

fantails cheekily flit in and out of

the trees following walkers. The

plantation, planted in 1893 to provide

shelter and timber, is a mixed exotic

conifer plantation dominated by large

Douglas-fir but also includes radiata

pine, macrocarpa, larch, spruce,

Corsican pine and cedar along with

some oak and silver wattle.

Dogs are also welcome but must be

kept on a leash. Entry is from Horndon

Street, west of Darfield.

Vibrant,

family-focussed

Green spaces

for kids

We all know that being in

amongst nature is good for our

mind, body and soul. But did

you know that research says

that spending time in nature

is also good for our children

– it helps them become

less stressed than children

who don’t spend time in the

outdoors.

Forest bathing is a Japanese practice

known as ‘shinrin yoku’, it promotes

calm and quiet amongst the trees

whilst closely observing nature and

breathing in the oxygen generated by

the forest.

Being close to nature is believed

to de-stress and boost health and

wellbeing in a positive way. Simply

‘being’ in amongst nature offers

numerous health benefits, both

physical and mental. Forest bathing

offers opportunities for children to

connect with themselves and nature. It

also encourages children to take more

responsibility for their environment and

show empathy towards nature.

Both you and your children will benefit

from ambling though the forest. Here

are some ways you can enjoy a forest

or bush walk with your children.

1. Breathe deeply. Take time to stop

and sit or lie down. Find a nice spot to

sit down and encourage your children

to close their eyes and breathe deeply.

What can they smell? What can they

hear?

2. Hug a tree. It is said that when you

hug a tree, it hugs you back. Ask your

children to find a special tree and wrap

their arms around it. A tree is a keeper

of secrets and its positive energy

promotes wellbeing.

3. Walk slowly. Only when you slow

right down will you begin to notice how

alive the forest is. Ask your children

who might live there?

4. Count the birds. How many different

species of birds can you see while on

your walk. Can you name them? Help

your children learn the different bird

names and calls.

5. Name the trees. What trees make

up the forest, talk about the different

canopy layers.

6. Be an artist. Take pencils, crayons

and paper with you and encourage

your children to draw what they see.

7. Create a nature collage. Collect

fallen leaves, twigs and stones and

create little works of art on the forest

floor or beside a track for other forest

bathers to find.

8. Promise to come back. Ask your

children what they enjoyed the most

and make a date to come back and

visit the forest.

has been widely adopted in New Zealand

to describe services that provide regular

care for school-age children (5-13) outside

family life and enhance learning done at

school. At Selwyn Kids, we pride ourselves

in providing quality before and after school

care for the children in our care. Our staff

individual attention. Homebased care is

care that is in an educator’s own home.

It offers an amazing low ratio home-like

environment, which is great for babies,

toddlers and young children. It provides

christchurch School of Music

Christchurch School of Music (CSM)

has offered high quality music tuition and

ensembles to Cantabrians for 65 years,

with many of its alumni now performing

in orchestras, bands and choirs across New

Zealand and the world.

“From an engaging preschool

programme to high quality adult tuition

and everything in between, CSM caters

to everyone aged from 2 to 92, whatever

their level of playing or singing” says Music

Director Celia Stewart.

It offers tuition in all orchestral

instruments, recorder, ukulele, guitar,

piano and voice, and musicianship classes.

A wide range of ensembles includes

orchestras at every level; two choirs; wind,

guitar and recorder ensembles; chamber

music; jazz combo; concert band; big band;

and rock bands.

CSM’s outreach programme takes tutors

into schools to offer strings, band, ukulele,

recorder and percussion tuition.

“The school is a place where all the

family can learn and enjoy being part of

an ensemble at their level,” says Celia “It

is always wonderful to see a mother and

daughter playing in the same orchestra.

There is a strong sense of community on

a Saturday with music coming from every

space.”

Saturday and after school tuition will

take place starting in 2020 at Linwood

College on the old Avonside Girls’ High

site on Avonside Drive.

CSM offers a range of performing

opportunities from solo recitals, regular

soirees to its annual Showcase.

“CSM has an important role to play,

regardless of whether students go on to

become professional musicians, or listeners

with a well-grounded knowledge and love

of music,” says Celia, who started at the

then Christchurch School of Instrumental

Music as a six year old and has worked in a

wide range of roles within the School.

The school has always championed the

recorder, a beautiful instrument in its own

right as well as a great starting instrument

so it is offering a very special deal. For

just $52 a year, students receive a quality

instrument, a tutor book and group tuition

with excellent tutors for the full year.

Gain a second chance at NCEA

NCEA credits after leaving secondary

school, thanks to Vision College. The

Private Training Establishment (PTE) are

spreading awareness to the young people

in the community, making sure they know

that achieving NCEA levels outside of

school is within their reach.

Vision College’s free ‘Ultimate’

programme offers students without NCEA

the opportunity to gain NCEA Level 1

and 2, their driver’s licence, and a range of

skills designed to make them employable.

Students earn their NCEA credits in

a more practical way, through games,

hands-on activities, and by applying their

learning to real life situations. Students

also get to experience tasters of different

career and study paths to help them

decide where they would like to head after

completing ‘Ultimate’.

School leavers can also enrol in

Security, Early Childcare or Business

Administration courses to earn not only

credits towards NCEA Level 3, but also a

career qualification too in just six months.

These courses are all free for anyone aged

between 16 and 19. Upon completion

students can even pathway onto higher

study with Vision College in Web and

Software Development, Early Childhood

Education, and Counselling.

Vision College are enrolling now for

February! For more information on their

courses, call 0800 834 834, txt “VISION”

to 027 557 8839, or visit their website

www.vision.ac.nz.

Each year up to 10,000 young people

in New Zealand leave school with little

or no formal qualifications. Many teens

disengage with school as the teaching

environment simply does not suit their

style of learning. Research shows that

without a qualification they are more likely

to have difficulties entering the workforce,

as most jobs nowadays require NCEA and

a driver’s licence.

Many early school leavers unfortunately

believe that secondary school is the only

way to earn their NCEA qualifications.

This misconception is particularly

concerning for those young people

who don’t necessarily ‘fit’ the schooling

environment, but still want to find

employment or complete certain industry

training courses for which an NCEA

qualification is a pre-requisite.

Every year dozens of young people

are getting a second chance at earning

Finding a point of difference can assist

Andrew and Matt looked for a suitable

yet unique vehicle, which was economic

imported from Italy by a Wellington

dealer.

produced as a light commercial vehicle

since 1948, is typical of a bee buzzing

around a busy city, in a similar fashion to

the Vespa scooter (the wasp) on which it

was modelled.

With a few events locked in, Andrew

and Matt began the Empire Coffee

Company mid-winter 2016. Business

grew steadily, their Tuk Tuk Piaggio

Ape coffee cart attracting considerable

attention.

Already, the two-seater Piaggio

Ape, which is classed as a moped and

registered for road use, has clocked up

20,000 kilometres. This figure represents

a lot of motoring for a vehicle which has

a top speed of 30 kilometres an hour and

costs just $9 to fill.

Business boomed for Andrew and

Matt. They purchased a second vehicle in

2017 and a third in 2018, employing staff

to assist in the business.

“We found one coffee cart couldn’t

cope with the number of enquiries we

were getting so we decided to increase

our fleet, to allow us to attend more

events on the same day,” explains

Andrew.

The Empire Coffee Company’s vehicles

are seen at many occasions, festivals

and markets, including Warbirds over

Wanaka. They take the Ape down on

a trailer to this event to avoid days of

travel. Their good coffee, distinctive

vehicles and ecological approach to

business have made them a popular

choice.

Where possible, they source products

locally, offer milk alternatives and their

packaging is more eco-friendly. Even

their waste coffee grinds are recycled

as a bi-product in handmade scrubs or

composted.

“People love the vehicle. It’s the sort of

thing you don’t see every day. Children

hop in the front and adults want to know

about its motor. It’s a real talking point

for the business,” adds Andrew.

The Empire Coffee Company now has

its first permanent coffee shop at the

Riverside Market in Christchurch.

“We chose the location for its aesthetics

and proximity to the river. It’s a popular

area with locals and tourists. We’re

getting great feedback about our coffee

and the shop’s fit-out,” says Andrew.

While the new coffee shop has been a

success Andrew and Matt will still have

their coffee carts on the road.

‘It’s a good way to get out and about,

promoting the brand and meeting

people,” suggests Andrew.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Free battery testing

and expertise

When it comes to automotive batteries,

one size does not fit all. If a wrong

battery is in place it can play havoc with

the electrics, which may prove costly. It

is therefore essential to have the correct

battery fitted in your motor vehicle.

As a vehicle’s battery gets older or

when it is not performing as it should,

seeking assistance from a specialist

battery service centre can be easier.

Experts in this field are Newlands Auto

Electrical in Rolleston. They carry a wide

range of automotive batteries so there is

no waiting around for a new battery to

be sourced.

Their team of professional automotive

battery technicians will quickly and

conveniently check your battery on

site and sort any issues, no matter what

type of vehicle you drive. If your battery

needs replacing, they will recommend

and install the correct battery ensuring

reliable motoring in all weather.

Newlands have dedicated battery shops

in their branches at Rolleston, Ashburton

and Timaru. Their experts are always

willing to advise what is right for your

vehicle. The team also charge batteries

where needed and specialise in battery

repairs.

Newlands Auto Electrical look after a

wide range of customers from operators

of agricultural machinery, trucks,

tractors, earthmoving machinery and

other heavy vehicles, through to smaller

businesses and private individuals.

Whether your vehicle has two or twelve

wheels, your battery and auto electrical

needs will be taken care of at Newlands.

Concerned about the environment,

Newlands ensure all old batteries are

recycled, contributing revenue received

to community initiatives, events and

sponsorships like local sports teams.

Newlands Auto Electrical have direct

buying power with a number of auto

electrical suppliers, including Hella,

Eroad and Tait, and a partnership with

battery manufacturers Century and

Yuasa. This gives Newlands access to

the best products and technology at

exceptionally good prices.

Until the end of February, Newlands

are offering some great specials on high

quality batteries and auto electrical

products. For more information, check

Electrical at 825 Jones Road (the Izone

Teach children to love and respect animals

Children can learn a lot from their

relationship with animals – patience,

respect, and empathy. The bond a child

forms with the family pet provides

enormous benefits for the child’s social,

emotional and cognitive development.

Between the ages of seven and eleven

years old, children learn and instil their

ideas of fairness and morality by watching

how the adults in their lives treat each

other and animals.

Encourage a positive bond

Teach children that your pets are

not four-legged humans, and that it is

important for the family to find out about

what your pets need to thrive and be

happy. Similarly, it is important to teach

children that pets are not toys and that

animals do not enjoy being shut in boxes

or being dressed in clothes or held tightly.

Some children may be frightened of

animals. You can acknowledge this fear,

while slowly encouraging a positive

relationship between the animal and

child. Lead activities with the animal and

gradually allow the child to take the lead.

Sometimes it is difficult to know

what animals are thinking or feeling.

Encourage children to trade places with

their pet. If a child says they don’t like

what’s happening, it is very likely the pet

won’t like it either.

Teach children to use rewards, pats, or

a happy voice when your pet has behaved

well. Do not allow children to yell, smack,

or hurt the family pet as punishment.

Children often perceive their family pets

as siblings and will discipline the pet in

the same ways as adults discipline them.

Encourage children to notice when

animals want to be left alone or are feeling

fearful. The child may notice that the

family pet behaves in a certain manner or

retreats to a certain place when they are

not comfortable.

Teach children to interact with the

family pet with fun activities such as

hiding treats in a room for a dog to sniff

out and find, or using a string cat toy to

initiate play.

Ask children to identify the personality,

and likes and dislikes of your pet.

Some pets are cuddly and some are

independent. Some pets are active and

some are relaxed. What are the unique

characteristics of your family pets?

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

SELWYN TIMES

Honda Civic hatch has rich heritage

HONDA HAS one of the

motoring world’s most enduring

nameplates – Civic.

The cheeky three-door

hatchback that was introduced in

1972 has gone on to become one

of the most sophisticated models

in Honda’s line-up today.

Sure, there are other badges

which have gone the distance

as well, but the Civic has good

history and everyone I know who

has owned a Civic has always

been full of praise for its honesty,

reliability and economy.

I guess nothing has changed

now that we are into 2020, the

Civic RS that this evaluation

focuses on is a very refined

mainstream model. Of course,

the Civic has grown markedly in

stature, the hatchback and sedan

could well be deemed mid-size

models at over 4.6m, but they still

have the virtues that will lure the

faithful and newcomers into the

brand.

Essentially, there are five Civic

models, three sedans and two

hatchbacks, although this doesn’t

include the Type R; if you want

outright performance, that

228kW thriller is still the bee’s

knees in terms of hot hatchbacks.

This evaluation focuses on the

$39,990 RS Sensing sedan, which

gets Honda’s delightful 1.5-litre

turbocharged four-cylinder

engine. Bear in mind that you can

buy Civic SX ($32,990) without

turbocharged power, there are

1.8-litre naturally aspirated

driveline options.

That engine also develops good

power at 104kW and 174Nm.

However, the RS gets 127kW and

220Nm and, according to Honda,

both return healthy and close fuel

economy figures. The SX is rated

at 6.4-litres per 100km/h (44mpg)

on combined cycle average,

while the RS will make returns of

6.3l/100km (45mpg).

My son purchased some

gaming items off Trade Me and I

offered to take the evaluation car

south to Ashburton to pick them

up. On the long straight roads of

State Highway 1 the fuel usage

gauge was listing just 5l/100km

(56mpg) instantaneously at

the legal limit, the engine quite

relaxed working over at just

1600rpm.

That had a beneficial effect on

overall economy, when I took

the evaluation car back to the

dealership the in-cabin average

was showing 7l/100km (40mpg),

not too distant from Honda’s

claims.

While the engine is leaned out

HONDA CIVIC RS: Sporty, edgy styling.

towards fuel savings, that doesn’t

mean it is unwilling to perform,

quite the opposite in fact. It is

a free revving unit with strong

torque and positive accelerator

response, the turbo boost is

strong through the mid-range,

maximum torque arrives at just

1700rpm and is carried through

to 5500rpm; on the occasions

when I made use of the passing

lane, the Civic RS stormed

through an overtake with ease.

While there aren’t many corners

on that drive, there are a couple

of tricky ones off the main drag

which test chassis and suspension

control. I’m pleased to report

the Civic in this form has direct

corner turn-in and acceptable

handling balance. Body lean is

well contained, and the fourcorner

independent suspension

set-up is all quality in terms

of shock absorption without

jeopardising cabin comfort.

A lot of how the Civic handles

is a direct result of the Type R

performance programme, and

this has filtered down to a fine

ride comfort/handling balance,

along with providing strong

communication between the

road surface and steering wheel.

The sport specification 235/40

x 18in Michelin Pilot tyres also

play a part, they have a wide

road footprint and high grip

properties.

Not only does the Civic offer an

involving driving experience, it

also is finished to lure the buyer

with its bold looks and edgy

design. The test car was painted a

burnt orange and it captured a lot

of attention with its sporty appeal.

It also gets a lot of kit. Sure

there’s no satellite navigation, but

it does have plenty of goodies

which takes the model into the

value-for-money bracket.

The Civic RS also has all the

safety kit which easily qualifies

it for a five-star Australasian

rating. The Honda Sensing safety

technologies include an alphabet

soup of acronyms. Spelt out, they

include adaptive cruise control,

low speed follow, lane keep assist,

collision mitigation braking,

forward collision warning, lane

departure warning and other key

safety features.

When I returned home from

my 190km return journey, I told

my wife how much I enjoyed the

Civic, she agreed by saying that

when she drove it it also left an

impression.

Not only does it represent

sporty style and performance,

but it is a refined car in terms of

comfort and function.

It is also much of what I like

about cars, and while it most

certainly fits into the sedan/

hatchback category its integrated

design borders on coupe-like

styling, and that definitely

captures my attention.

Gardening

Dining al fresco? Make sure your

outdoor living area is up to task

IT’S DEFINITELY the time

of year we all like to get outside

as much as possible.

It’s warm and you now

have plenty of time in the

evenings after work to have

a relaxing meal in your garden

or outdoor living area.

It’s very easy to design an

area that will make outdoor

entertaining enjoyable.

• Plants –Try and use

plants that you like the look

of, and that complement

the garden area whatever

your favourite style, and

plants that will help to

soften any solid structures

like concrete walls and

paving.

The best idea is to take a

note when you go to other

peoples places, of what

plants you like, and this will

help you in choosing the direction/

style for your own

area. Plain wooden fences

most of the time look ugly,

and a bit like prison walls,

so softening these is a good

start. You can do this by

planting a hedge, or a border

of assorted plants and

where there is very little

room, espaliering a plant

onto a fence is easy and

very effective.

• Water features —

There are some awesome

water features available

these days, in all shapes

and sizes. If you want the

water feature to be seen

from several angles you will

need to select one where

the water spills over on all

sides.

The latest trend is that

the water features are made

of a composite material

of fibreglass/cement

mixture – lightweight but

strong – and importantly

ON THE

LOOKOUT:

Garden art

will add

a point of

interest and

get people

talking.

they look very natural. Also

the sound of water near

an outdoor living area is a

relaxing sound.

• Garden sculptures/

art – If adding either art

or sculpture into your

garden it will, like the water

feature, add an element that

you don’t get in lots of other

gardens. Set amongst your

plants or in pride of place

on a feature wall, it will add

a point of interest that will

certainly get your visitors

talking.

WHAT’S NEW?

WiTH iNTElligro

With the soaring temperatures it

is a constant battle to keep your

plants and lawn in great condition.

It might be tempting to water them

through the day, but it is most effective

to water in the early morning or later

evening. While watering your lawn

during the day won’t harm it, it is

very wasteful as the water will mostly

evaporate – your plant’s leaves however

- these may burn if the water stays on

them with the blaring sun on them all

day. Invest in a good-quality sprinkler,

hose and water timer. These will be

great for late night watering. Simply set

the timer and head off to bed – easy.

garDen tips:

» Remove laterals from

tomatoes

» Pull out the weeds as

they appear

» Harvest produce as it

is ready – you don’t

want it to bolt to seed

» If you have main crop

potatoes in, keep

mounding them up

Location, Size & Motivation to Build!

It’s fair to say that properties in Beaumont Drive seldom

reach the market. The convenient location, the peaceful

street, and the quality of the surrounding homes

ensure residents are loath to leave, holding tight to

their properties and remaining tight-lipped about the

endearing features of the area.

This spacious home features four bedrooms (main with

ensuite), a modern kitchen (with Corian benchtop), and

a well-appointed bathroom. Designed with families in

mind, the two living spaces offer plenty of versatility,

while a heat pump guarantees year-round comfort. Other

highlights include neutral decor, a separate laundry and

excellent indoor/outdoor flow.

Outside, the sheltered grounds feature a private patio,

while a garden shed is a convenient extra and ample offstreet

parking complements the double internal access

garage.

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

by other quality homes in a community renowned for

being both friendly and safe, the property is located close

to a bevy of shops, cafes and only a stone throw away

from a popular preschool/nursery.

Our owners have their new section secured and won’t

start building until they have this stunning home sold!

Motivation is high and your competition will be quick!

Don’t wait or you could be too late - contact Caine on

027 330 1002 for more information or to arrange a private

viewing.

[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.

If a property does not sell

immediately there is no need for

panic or dropping the price.


Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

A love of people

and real estate

17

With a background in property and

joy in helping others, it was natural

for Kaye Isaacs to choose real estate as

her second vocation.

“I’ve always been involved in

property investment and had talked

about working in real estate for a

long time. With my children off to

university and my brother in law who

is also in the business encouraging

me, I thought it was time to make it

happen,” explains Kaye.

Living locally, Kaye joined

Harcourts Four Seasons Realty in

Rolleston, a choice she does not

regret.

“I love my job. I’m really interested

in property and love helping people

so it’s great to put the two together

and be part of a really great team of

agents who cooperate and work for

the good of the client,” says Kaye.

Kaye believes, a supportive team

and client focus is what makes her job

so enjoyable. As a Harcourts agent she

participates in intensive training and

is supported by experienced business

owners who are available at any time.

With experience in new and

existing homes, having also worked

for a new housing company, Kaye has

the knowledge to guide clients though

the choices involved when purchasing

a new (off the plan) home.

“There are many variables of a new

build which clients need to be aware

of. You need to confidently take them

through the process, explaining the

quality, products and exactly what is

included in the new home,” suggests

Kaye.

Kaye focusses on the client

whether a buyer or seller. She

searches property listings to identify

availability and pricing, and takes

time with clients to view properties,

reviewing the merits and suitability

of each home.

“I like to do my best for each and

every client. I enjoy getting to know

them and learn what they are looking

for, helping them as I would my own

family,” adds Kaye.

This customer emphasis has

resulted in long-term relationships

like working with a couple for around

18 months to find their ideal home

and helping a client new to property

investment, to find one suitable.

Kaye who grew up on a lifestyle

block with horses, has a Bachelor

of Science in agriculture from

the University of New England in

Armidale, New South Wales. Subjects

studied included soil science, animal

production, horticulture, agricultural

engineering and economics. At the

Invermay Research Centre in Mosgiel,

she worked in animal genetics

focussing on sheep reproduction.

With her husband, she now owns a

lifestyle block.

“We looked at numerous lifestyle

blocks until we found one which

suited our needs. There were some

really lovely homes but we needed a

property that was easy care. Choosing

a lifestyle block requires balancing

price, location, house size and type,

property infrastructure and land

suitability,” suggests Kaye.

“The key in real estate is being

professional, hardworking and

dependable.”

Kaye
