WEST MELTON’S Julia

Holmes is on a mission to

make a difference in the world.

The fifteen-year-old has

a passion for biology, and

from a young age has always

been interested in how things

worked, oten taking things

apart just to put them back

together.

That passion has landed her

the opportunity of her dreams.

Julia is one of 25 young

women chosen around the

country to participate in

the GirlBoss Advantage

programme next month,

designed to mentor the

female leaders of tomorrow in

industries that were oten maledominated,

with particular

focus on science, technology,

engineering and maths.

She was shocked to hear the

news from her mother.

• By Devon Bolger

ANY DECISION on helping people

will come from the Government,

the district council says.

Said district

council chief

executive David

Ward: “(We) will

be guided by

government

policy and

guidelines in

David Ward

relation to fifnancial

assistance

for ratepayers.

It is likely to be a national

decision.”

Mr Ward said it is still too early

to tell exactly what assistance the

community will need.

“It’s very early days and I

think that we are just looking

at how we respond to the virus.

For us, it’s about responsiveness

to the central government

guidelines, the safety of staff

and the safety of our communities.”

It follows calls from

Christchurch city councillors to

stop rates increases in response

to the Covid-19 crisis.

Hororata resident helpless

to stop property flooding

• By Devon Bolger

A HORORATA resident says he

is getting no help in preventing

severe flooding on his property.

Robby Wilson has lived on

Downs Rd for 38 years and said

he has repeatedly tried to engage

with the district council on finding

a solution.

“They won’t talk to me. I’ve

talked to the mayor and staff and

they’re going to do nothing for me.

I’ve left messages but I’m never

informed of anything,” he said.

He says over half of his property

will be flooded if there is

more than 60mm of rain.

“That is up to the floor of the

house and about 250-300mm of

water will get around and under

my house. It has stripped the

soil from the gardens, put water

through my sheds and vehicles. I

have had enough.”

He said the district council has

dug a ditch about 1km from his

property but that has not helped.

“They’re very nervous about

doing things. They are just talking

it’s all they’re doing. It’s a

major inconvenience for us.

“It’s the cost of it and the damage

that gets done. We had a whole

lot of old books and they are all

ruined from the flooding during

Christmas in 2018 and nobody

seems to give a stuff. Nobody takes

it seriously I don’t think.”

DISAPPOINTED:

Robby Wilson’s

Hororata property

suffers from

severe flooding,

like this incident in

December 2018, and

he says nothing is

being done to help. ​

A work plan for

flood protection in

the township includes

a number of projects

aimed at reducing

flooding.

Happy Jacks Creek

is to be cleared and

floodgates installed, a

diversion drain will be

installed on Hawkins

Rd, the smaller culverts

along the existing

drain on the road

will be upgraded and

old water race culverts

will be opened.

A water level monitor will also

be installed at the roundabout on

Bealey Rd and extensive willow

clearing is planned for Cordy’s

Stream and the Hororata River

as well as gravel removal to improve

flood flows.

Mr Wilson said this work

could possibly help the township

but it would not stop the severe

flooding and his property.

A district council spokesman

confirmed that Mr Wilson had

contacted them and said they

will discuss his concerns directly

with him.

Mr Wilson doubts this will

happen as he has tried several

times to get answers from the

district council before.

It has only been in the last few

years or so that the flooding has

got this bad, he said

“The council is putting an

ambulance at the bottom of

a cliff with what they have

planned for flood protection.

You have to stop the water getting

into the township rather

than dealing with it when it

gets here,” he said.

“The report that was presented

to the Malvern Community

Board is flawed and most of

it will do nothing to stop the

flooding.”

Rates

decision

• From page 1

Councillors James Gough, Sam

MacDonald, Catherine Chu, Phil

Mauger, Aaron Keown and James

Daniels sent a letter to Mayor

Lianne Dalziel asking her to lead

a conversation as to how a zero

per cent rates increase could be

achieved this year.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the situation is continuing to

develop and he wants to ensure

the district is responsible with the

assets it has.

“There needs to be the investment

that is required to ensure

that our water and wastewater

systems are up to scratch and we

can provide good services to our

community,” he said,

On Monday, all of the community

facilities in the district closed

their doors.

The closure includes all libraries

and service centres, the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre, Lincoln Event

Centre, Rolleston Community

Centre, West Melton, Tai Tapu,

and Dunsdandel community centres,

and all other council-owned

community centres.

Libraries and recreation

centres will be looking at finding

alternative ways of delivering

Julia’s big plans

• From page 1

“At first it was really

shocking, and then it

really settled in that this

is actually happening and

it’s amazing to have this

opportunity,” she said.

The programme helps

young females gain important

skills and exposure

in a series of masterclasses

and rapid-fire internships.

While gaining experience

and connecting with industry

leaders to fulfil their

dreams, it simultaneously

addresses the skills and

gender diversity gap in

workplaces today.

Said Julia: “The programme

will be beneficial

for young women because

it will encourage them to

believe they’re more than

capable of working in those

industries.”

Julia moved to New Zealand

from Essex, United

Kingdom, in 2011 with her

parents and twin sisters for

better schooling opportunities.

She was diagnosed

with attention deficit

hyperactivity disorder as

a child, which she and her

family began to understand

once they moved to New

Julia Holmes

Zealand.

“I have ADHD, so at the

time Selwyn House School

helped my parents understand

what that was, and get

me on the proper medication

so I could focus,” she said.

The 15-year-old dreams

of becoming a geneticist

one day, using genetic

modifications to improve

the lives of the less fortunate.

Her love of biology

stemmed from a family

member who had a rare,

chromosomal disorder

which sparked an interest

in learning more.

“I want to help in some

sort of way using genetics,

like genetically modifying

plants to help with world

hunger,” she said.

“I’ve also been working

on a project called Project

X in school, where I’m

researching how I would be

able to genetically modify

mosquitos to carry a vaccine

which could prevent

disease in third-world

countries.”

The five-day GirlBoss

Advantage programme is

set to go ahead in Christchurch

next month, where

the students will have the

opportunity to intern with

Orion Group and is hosted

by power company Connetics.

Julia hopes to gain a

number of key skills and

experience to aid her on

the road to becoming a

geneticist.

“This programme might

be able to help me get some

feedback from experts and

mentors on the project I’m

working on, and that I’ll be

able to use later in life.”

It is often a man’s world

in her chosen industry, but

she believes now is the time

for girls to lead the world.

“Don’t listen to the

people who tell you that

you can’t do it.”

How to

self-isolate

if you’re 70+

If you’re over 70 years of age, you should stay at

home (self-isolate) as a precaution. It’s a good idea

to organise a plan of action by reaching out to family,

friends and neighbours.

For more advice go to Covid19.govt.nz

Continue enjoying physical exercise – like gardening

– and ensure you have a good supply of food and

medication. As a helping hand, the Government has

doubled the Winter Energy Payment.

How to

support

anyone 70+

It’s really important that we all support people aged 70+ in our

communities during this challenging time. Here are a few suggestions:

1. Stay at least 1 metre away.

2. Wave or nod instead of shaking hands.

3. Keep visits short (under 15 minutes).

4. Talk to neighbours over the fence.

5. Offer to pick up supplies and medicine.

6. Offer to help them connect in ways other

than in person, like video chat.

7. Send videos or pictures of children

rather than taking them to visit in person.

Residents set up

trust to manage fundraising effort

• By Devon Bolger

A TRUST has been set up to

manage donations to a group

Resident and businessman

Hamish Prebble said the

Prebbleton Clean Air Trust was

money.

There are five

trustees, three of

which are within

the 500m limited

notification zone

and two from the

community.

Prebbleton

Saturday has been postponed

due to Covid-19.

Said resident Angela

Jones: “There has been an

overwhelming response to

this event from the local

communities and other

surrounding areas. With

numbers attending predicted

to reach well over 1000 the

decision to postpone was made

for community well being and in

line with government direction.

“It is a difficult decision for us

to make but it is important that

we do this in the interests of the

health of all our communities.”

The group has also decided to

start a givealittle page for people

to donate to the cause.

around fundraising.

“The money will be spent on

opposing the applications for

air discharge consents that have

been made to Environment

Canterbury, and for public

awareness and education

campaigns.”

A website has also been created

for further information on the

proposal.

Waste Management Ltd has

applied to expand its current

site and operate the toxic waste

treatment plant at 305 Marshs

Rd in South Hornby.

In its resource consent

application, it said the plant will

treat and manage items, such as

pesticides, acid, used tyres and

other types of rubbish.

Resource consent was granted

for the proposed plant by the city

council in December 2018.

Environment Canterbury

also granted three consents for

its 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 people within 500m of the

proposed facility had a chance to

have their say.

Dog poo

in Lincoln

“I am really disappointed that

“We just want to spread some

awareness about the problem and

ask people to clean up after their

Cr Lyall said it is a timely

reminder that dog owners must

have bags to collect droppings on

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

entomology (insects and other invertebrates).

Each week he introduces a new species found in

his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise

Endemic hoverfly

saves cabbage trees

A DELICATE little hoverfly that

can sometimes get trapped inside

the house is the cabbage tree

hoverfly, Allograpta ventralis.

This species is a New Zealand

endemic and is often found

where there are cabbage trees.

Adults are skinny little flies

between 6 and 10mm long.

They have white faces with

large eyes, a dark, shiny thorax

and yellow and black abdomen.

Males are slightly smaller and

their eyes are holoptic (which

means they meet along the

median dorsal line of the head)

compared to females.

Adults eat pollen from a

variety of native and exotic

plants.

The females can contain

more than 60 eggs. The larvae

are flattened in shape and feed

on the cabbage tree mealybug

(Balanococcus cordylinidis)

which are found at the base of

the leaves, particularly where

leaf debris gets lodged among

leaf base, creating a moist

environment.

These mealybugs in large

numbers can cause the cabbage

trees to droop, look sick and

sometimes die.

Fortunately the hoverfly larvae

can usually keep these native

mealybugs in check and stop the

trees succumbing to them.

DELICATE: The cabbage tree hoverfly helps save cabbage

trees from mealybug infestations.

Coes Ford part of

COES FORD will

the relationship between

E.coli and harmful

waterborne pathogens.

Environment Canterbury

surface water

scientists Jarred Arthur

and Emily Gray are carrying

out sampling and

testing of water at the

ford as part of the pilot

study for the Institute of

Environmental Science

and Research and the

Ministry for the Environment.

The site was chosen as

it is a good representation

of some of the issues

facing swimming water

quality in both the urban

and rural sectors.

Mr Arthur said the

hope is for the study to enable

scientists to predict where and

when harmful pathogens will

appear in water.

“There are a lot of land-use

pressures including agriculture,

urban pressures and waterfowl or

other nesting birds.

“All those pressures add up on

the water, and so we’re helping

measure how those pressures are

different in waterways around

the country,” he said.

This is important as it is all

about protecting public health,

Mr Arthur said.

INVESTIGATE: Environment Canterbury surface water scientists Emily

Gray (left) and Jarred Arthur taking samples at Coes Ford as part of a

nationwide study. ​

“Our waterways are important

ecologically, culturally and aesthetically,

but also for swimming

water health and that’s what this

project is directly related to.”

Ms Gray said while microbes

are what the pilot test is focused

on, there are some potentially

hidden dangers at sites such as

Coes Ford.

“Coes Ford is a contact

recreation site, so we monitor a

few things that could be a human

health risk. E. coli is often

focused on, but another large

part of the health risk is toxic

cyanobacteria.

“At Coes Ford, this forms as

a thick black mat that can be

found on the bottom of the river.

The mat produces a cyanotoxin

which is potentially deadly. It can

to dogs, it only takes a teaspoon of

the toxin to kill a dog,” she said.

It is hoped that the results of

the study will be used to inform

a larger more intensive investigation

to review New Zealand’s

swimming water quality monitoring

and reporting guidelines.

The Heathcote River in

Christchurch is also being

sampled as part of the study.

In Brief

BDI out of Div 1 rugby

Burnham-Dunsandel-Irwell

are one of two teams to have

pulled out of the division one

rugby competition due to a lack

of playing numbers, along with

newcomers Woodend.

The competition was to start this

weekend before Covid-19 caused

the suspension all rugby in New

Zealand.

The pools and draw for the combined

competition was redone

but will need to be re-jigged

again when club rugby begins.

Burnham-Dunsandel-Irwell

intend to have a team play in

division two instead.

Rolleston Raptors take

basketball title

The Rolleston Raptors basketball

team has won the men’s grade

of their Hornby Action Indoor

Sports league.

The team beat Gordon’s Ballers

in the final, last week.

The team, which is made up of

Rolleston High School students,

uses the competition to prepare

for the secondary school basketball

season which is currently

suspended due to Covid-19.

Last year the team finished

second and then represented

their school and finish second at

their South Island under-17

tournament last September.

Chamberlain chipper after

stellar Hawke Cup season

• By Jacob Page

CANTERBURY Country and

victorious Hawke Cup cricket

captain Harry Chamberlain

thought something special

was brewing at the start of the

season.

The Leeston-Southbridge

player said he felt the 16-strong

squad picked in October had

depth even with a number of

them well entrenched in the

Canterbury set-up.

“One of the big things we did

was pick that squad early so that

we were all training together on

a regular basis each week right

from the start,” he said.

“A number of our quick bowlers

were needed for Canterbury

throughout but we always felt

we had the depth to cover that

challenge.”

Chamberlain had plenty of

good sounding boards within

the team for advice.

“Guys like Shanan (Stewart)

and Tim (Gruijters) are both

senior guys and international

cricketers.”

He said Stewart’s century in

the Hawke Cup win over Hamilton

a month ago was a pivotal

point in the campaign.

LEADER: Harry Chamberlain says the Canterbury Country cricket team always had the potential

to achieve what it did this past season. (Right) the team pictured after winning the Hawke Cup.

“I know (Henry Shipley) got

six wickets for us after we won

the toss but Shan’s century in

those conditions, with a slow

outfield and that pitch, it was

like 200.

“Not all of the guys had played

three-day cricket so it was a case

of batting session by session and

breaking it down that way.

“We have guys in the squad

who know their roles really well.

“Guys like Jed Roberts and

Rupert Young always find a way

to contribute to the team and our

overall success,” he said.

“You need guys like that to

have the season we have had.

“Winning the Hawke Cup is

no small achievement and knowing

that we have it for the summer

allows us to prepare well to

try to defend it next season.”

Chamberlain and his Leeston-

Southbridge teammates have

been denied the opportunity to

defend their Canterbury Country

45-over competition title

due to the current Covid-19

outbreak.

Their final against Cheviot

was to be played last Saturday

but was cancelled along with

all other cricket around New

Zealand.

Cheviot were declared the

winners after they finished topof-the-table

during the roundrobin

phase of the competition.

COVID-19

Council information

The Council is actively monitoring and responding to the developing COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve

set up a webpage for the latest up-to-date Council information at selwyn.govt.nz/covid19. Please

keep an eye on this link or our Facebook page.

All Council community facilities have been closed until further notice.

The closure includes all libraries and service centres, Selwyn Aquatic Centre, Lincoln Event

Centre, Rolleston, West Melton, Tai Tapu, and Dunsandel community centres, and all other

council-owned community centres and halls.

The Council’s Rolleston headquarters will remain open for now, but some services may be

restricted or unavailable. We encourage people to minimise non-essential calls and visits. You can

reach us on 0800 SELWYN (735 996) or by email. You can also find information, contact us, and

make payments for many services on our website.

If you are sick, have been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case or have returned from

overseas in the past 14 days, do not visit the Rolleston headquarters.

We have activated our business continuity and pandemic plans to make sure that essential

services (such as roading, water, sewerage and stormwater, refuse collection etc) will continue.

We are also prepared to support New Zealand health agencies with sharing of information and by

making Civil Defence staff available.

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says the decision to close facilities is based on meeting public health

requirements for minimising social contact, and is consistent with most other councils in the region.

“We understand this is a significant disruption for our communities, but it is important that we take

all possible steps to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

“While there’s no indication of community transmission emerging at this stage, closing these

facilities will help reduce any risk of the virus spreading through our community, and gives us the

best chance of keeping our communities safe.”

The Council is continuing to liaise with public health agencies and other neighbouring councils.

The closures will be reviewed on a regular basis, but they are likely to be in place for some time.

Libraries and recreation centres will be looking at alternative ways of delivering programmes and

classes using digital channels.

Campgrounds, parks and playgrounds will remain open at this stage.

Information as at Monday 23 March. Check selwyn.govt.nz/covid19 for latest updates.

Demolition of Lincoln building begins

Work will begin this week on the demolition of the Lincoln Chinese Takeaway building on Gerald Street.

The building at 5 Gerald Street is being removed as the first step in opening up the retail area and transforming

the street appeal for the Lincoln Town Centre upgrade. Work to prepare the building for demolition is due

to begin on Tuesday 24 March and the demolition is expected to be completed by Friday 8 May.

The demolition will also allow further developments in this area

to occur more easily during the Lincoln Town Centre upgrade,

which is scheduled to start in 2023, and allow any developments

to remain in keeping with the rest of the town centre design.

A traffic management plan will be in place for the duration of the

demolition works. The seven car parks directly in front of the

building will also be closed for the duration of the work for safety

reasons and for use by the contractors. Pedestrian access to

the adjacent businesses will be maintained.

A specialist team will safely remove asbestos from the building

during April before the demolition starts on 20 April. New Zealand

has strict laws for safe removal and this team will be working to

the Worksafe New Zealand Code of Practice for the management

and removal of asbestos and a site specific safety plan.

Community funds help

basketball make a slam dunk

The Selwyn Hawks Basketball club has taken flight thanks to the

Selwyn Community Fund.

The fund supports local community groups and organisations

holding events and activities that contribute to community wellbeing

– including those that promote participation in physical activity

across all ages and connecting members of the community.

Applications for round two of funding from the Community Fund

this year close on Thursday 30 April. Apply now at selwyn.govt.nz/

selwyncommunityfund.

The Selwyn Hawks launched in 2018, in response to rising

basketball participation in the district. In their first year, four Selwyn

teams played in the Canterbury Basketball Association winter

competition, and the Under 15 A team took home a winning title.

The club grew rapidly entering nine teams in the 2019 CBA

winter competition.

The fund has allowed the Selwyn Hawks to continue their passion

for basketball offering basketball skill development programmes

and tournaments for Selwyn youth with over 630 children taking

part in 2019.

"This funding has enabled us to secure the services of a very

experienced programmes co-ordinator, Aled Jones,” Selwyn Hawks

Programmes Manager Shanon Cummings said.

Mr Jones has been involved with playing and coaching basketball to

a national level and is running several programmes and tournaments

for the Selwyn Hawks.

“The community has benefitted by the Selwyn Hawks being able

to find and retain a highly skilled, knowledgeable and passionate

basketballer,” Mrs Cummings said.

The club has also run an after-school skills development programme

for beginners called, ‘Hoops’ during the school term at three Selwyn

venues: Rolleston Community Centre, Lincoln Event Centre and

West Melton Community and Recreation Centre.

Last year it also organised an inter-school tournament supported by

the Community Fund, for 48 teams of children in years three to eight.

Major drinking water projects

take next step

The multi-million dollar upgrade to the district’s drinking water

system has taken a big step forward with its largest project

completed.

The Council is part way through a $23 million series of 59 capital

works projects to build and upgrade pump stations, increase

capacity and improve water quality.

The new $1.4 million Helpet reservoir and pump station is now

online significantly increasing the water available to Rolleston. The

new station connects a 1200 cubic metre reservoir to the Rolleston

water supply and a pump station that when fully operational will be

able to pump up to 300 litres a second.

Works has also been completed at Sheffield, Hororata, West Melton

and Moore Street Rolleston and is underway at Tai Tapu, Rakaia

Huts, Claremont, Arthur’s Pass, Castle Hill, Springston, Leeston.

Council Infrastructure Group Manager Murray Washington says

the upgrades are part of a long-term plan to keep improving this

essential service.

“With the growth we’ve had in the past few years it’s important

to make sure that we’re constantly upgrading our drinking water

supply to make sure that people have access to a safe

and sufficient supply.”

SELWYN TIMES

Emergencies (as the name suggests) can

happen at any time, it is prudent to be

prepared in case something happens to

you and your pets.

Recent viral pandemic and other

natural disasters affecting Canterbury

such as earthquakes, floods and fires have

hopefully brought everyone’s attention to

the issue. If you haven’t already prepared

yourselves then I hope you will soon. It is

vital to include your pets in the disaster

plan as they are reliant on you for help.

Always practice good hygiene. Wash

your hands with soap and water and dry

them thoroughly especially after touching

your pets. If you allow pets to lick you,

please wash your face or hands or other in

contact body parts afterwards.

There are lots of survival kits/packs

available for people but have you thought

about what you may need in case your pets

are involved in an emergency?

In the first instance, have your vet’s

afterhours emergency phone number on

hand.

Pet first aid kit

Have a first aid kit ready, it should

include:

1. Bandages – crepe bandages, cohesive

bandages

2. Tape – micropore or similar

3. Scissors

4. Antibacterial wound cleaner

There are all different kinds of

emergencies, most of them involve taking

your pet to the vet as soon as possible. In a

case where there is a bleeding wound, use

bandages and tape and apply pressure to

stem the worst of the bleeding. The vet will

assess the wound when you arrive.

Bear in mind that if your pet has a

penetrating wound with an object in the

wound, such as a branch, knife etc, leave it

as is and let the vet remove it safely.

Any breathing difficulty including

breathing too fast or laboured heavy

breathing, especially whilst the animal is

resting require urgent veterinary attention.

Ingestion to known poisons such as rat/

mouse/rabbit bait, chocolate, antifreeze etc

requires urgent veterinary attention also.

Create a pet survival kit

For natural disaster emergencies, it is

prudent to have a survival kit ready at

hand for your pet. For a pet survival kit, I

suggest:

1. Enough food for at least a week

2. Bottles of water

3. Warm blankets

4. Bowls x 2

5. Spare medication – if your pet is on

on-going treatment it is always wise to

obtain your next script in good time

and not run too low

6. Collar, harness and lead (this includes

cat harnesses) to secure your pet

7. Keep this in a box or bag that can be a

pet carrier too.

Have a plan ready; discuss it with the

whole family. Be prepared!

Cats often run away or hide during

natural disasters, you may not be able to

catch them at the time of evacuation. So

ensure that they are microchipped and the

details are up to date. The Christchurch

earthquakes saw too many

cats lost or displaced,

microchipping maximises

your chance of being

reunited with them.

If you also have livestock, have an

evacuation plan for them too.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

A & P show cancelled

Due to the outbreak of Covid-19 and restrictions

on mass gatherings, one of the Malvern district’s

most iconic events will not go ahead this year.

‘This is the first time the show has been cancelled

since the war,’ says Malvern A&P Show president

Richard Hill. The show was founded in 1899.

The Malvern A & P Show is an annual favourite

in the area and involves the tireless energy of a

committee and an army of volunteers, who put in

hours of work leading up to the event.

“It’s a real shame,’ he says. ‘We had a lot of

response from competitors asking not to cancel and

we didn’t realise just how much the show meant to

people – it was heart-warming to hear.’

However, two competitions will still go ahead

– the gift fleece and the gift lamb – both these

competitions provide the organisation with much

needed revenue to help it remain viable. Mr Hill

says the competitions don’t involve a lot of people

and he is grateful for the support of farmers and the

sponsorship for these two events.

With 120 years behind the Malvern A & P Show,

Mr Hill says it’s times like these that make people

really appreciate what they did have and he expects

next year will be even better supported for that very

reason.

“We can expect a bigger and better show next year.’

NOTE: The Oxford A & P Show is also

cancelled for 2020

Wheels & Wings fundraiser postponed

The Sheffield Volunteer Fire Brigade’s

Wheels & Wings planned for Sunday

19th April, has been postponed due to

concerns over the spread of Covid 19

Coronavirus. It is hoped this event may

run later this year.

The first Wheels & Wings held in

2008, was so popular it became a biannual

event. The idea had grown out of

a suggestion by Nev Croy for an ‘All A

Day’ for Australian and American cars.

As with any good brainstorming, Charlie

Draper proposed including aeroplanes

and the district’s very own Wheels &

Wings became a reality.

Over the years, Wheels & Wings has

been a great family day out, featuring

a diverse line-up of vintage to modern

aircraft and motor

vehicles. On display

have also been

motorcycles, tractors,

light trucks, model

aeroplanes, microlights

and more, from the

unique to the unusual,

along with exhibits and

stalls.

This year would have

been the seventh time in

fourteen years, Wheels

& Wings has been run by the Sheffield

Volunteer Fire Brigade; a fundraiser

which allows the purchase of additional

equipment like their smoke chaser.

After each event, the Sheffield

Volunteer Fire Brigade has also

made generous donations to St John

Ambulance Malvern, while other local

organisations like schools, sports clubs

and the Malvern Lions have benefitted

from donations or the opportunity to

raise money.

The officers and members of the

Sheffield Volunteer Fire Brigade are

disappointed to have had to postpone

this year’s Wheels & Wings. They wish

to thank everyone who has provided

support in 2020 or in previous years they

have run this event.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Returning the sheen to metal

If restoring a car or motorcycle,

renovating your home or you just like

your vehicle to look its best, there may

be a need for some metal polishing or

sandblasting. Dull or scratched stainless

steel, corroded chrome, or tarnished brass

can all be brought back to life again.

With over 45 years in the industry,

Eric and Fred Williams have masses

of knowledge, skill and experience in

this specialised work. It is therefore not

surprising, their business Escort Metal

Polishers, is known for its high quality

metal finishing and sandblasting.

Almost any metal part on a car

or motorcycle can be polished or

sandblasted. Mag wheels are their

specialty, along with manifolds, covers,

pipes, alloy trims and stainless steel

around a vehicle. All can be given a

smoother, brighter finish. If your vehicle

has had a scrape they can sort any

damaged metal.

Escort Metal Polishers also take care of

re-chroming such as on bumpers or grills.

Eric, Fred and the team at Escort Metal

Polishers have worked on an extensive

range of projects from automotive and

marine to household items and large

commercial projects. They truly are a

one-stop shop, and not afraid to tackle

any job from the one-off to large on-going

projects.

Along with customers who call by, their

clientele includes engineers, building

companies, automotive specialists, panel

beaters, auto restorers and

other businesses.

“People come to us because

we can easily and quickly

take care of the whole job,”

says Fred.

Over the years they have

abrasive blasted and polished

countless mag wheels, vehicle

parts and motorcycle frames;

stripped down, polished and

lacquered house lots of light

and window fittings, as well

as door handles; and worked

on marine restoration

projects.

The team at Escort

Metal Polishers worked on

the canoe-like sculptures outside the

Christchurch Art Gallery, many of the

fittings in the new Christchurch Hospital

and Christchurch Justice Precinct, and

polished the brass kick plates, stair

banisters, hand rails and other fixtures

as part of the Christchurch Town Hall

restoration.

With a limited number of skilled

polishers now operating, Escort Metal

Polishers provides a valued service. The

combined experience, knowledge and

expertise of the team puts them ahead,

assuring quality workmanship in metal

polishing, abrasive-blasting and all facets

of the job.

They work hard to meet each and every

customer’s requirements and timeframe,

promising to turn your job around as

quickly as they can.

Sandblasting work is

usually completed within

two working days, metal

polishing completed

in about a week, and

chrome plating sorted

in approximately three

weeks.

If needing the services

of Escort Metal Polishers,

phone 366 2708, email

escortmetalpolishers@

hotmail.com or call by

Sydenham (off Hawdon

Street near the Brougham

Street expressway).

THE BEGINNING of the ‘changeover’

from summer to winter gardening has

arrived.

Autumn brings regular rainfall and

a welcome reprieve from hot, dry

temperatures for many areas around the

country.

Vegetable gardens

Harvest your remaining summer crops

and remove any plants that have finished

cropping and pop them in the compost

bin. Towards the end of the month,

winter vegetables can be planted as either

seedlings or seeds and include; beetroot,

broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage,

cauliflower, carrots, lettuce, onions,

radish, silverbeet, spinach, swedes and

turnips.

Replenish the soil with much needed

nutrients by adding compost. Mix well

with existing soil to a spade and a half

depth.

Remember to rotate where you will

plant different vegetables compared to

last year, and stagger plantings to provide

continuous harvesting throughout the

season. Protect your seedlings from snails

and slugs and keep watering if there is a

lack of rainfall.

gives plants a reprieve

Flower gardens

Sadly, most summer flowering annuals

that thrive in the hot months are nearing

the end of their lives. As temperatures

cool towards the end of the month, begin

planting out winter annuals like calendulas,

nemesia, pansies, snapdragons and

wallflowers. As with your vegetable garden,

prepare the soil well and make sure there

is enough drainage for the coming wet,

winter conditions.

Cut back any flowering perennials and

plant any new seedlings where desired.

March/April are the final months for

planting out bulbs. Good preparation of

soil is critical as many bulbs will not be

needed nutrients by adding compost.

disturbed for a number of years so it’s

worth giving them the best start.

In general, bulbs thrive in an open,

sunny position where the soil is well

drained. Bulbs to plant include anemones,

crocus, daffodils, freesias, hyacinth, iris,

lachenalias, nerines, ranunculus, tulips and

watsonias. Remember to mark where you

plant them.

Fruit trees and berries

A number of pear and apple varieties

are ready for harvesting this month, while

the classic golden queen peach ripens

in early march. Passionfruit are turning

purple now, indicating they are ready for

harvesting.

Pull them directly off the vine or collect

as they fall to the ground when ripe.

Mandarins, lemons and oranges are now

forming on citrus trees so keep watering

consistently, mulch well and continue

feeding with citrus fertiliser. Berry plants

such as raspberries, can be safely pruned

this month.

Herb gardens

Herbs can start looking a little tired this

time of the year and many begin flowering

and eventually ‘go to seed’. Cut back plants

regularly or plant new specimens. Another

option is to harvest, dry and then store

herbs for use over the winter months. It’s a

simple process and is very rewarding.

Rose gardens

Where roses have been well cared for

over the summer months, you will be

rewarded with displays of blooms in March

and April, and varieties such as iceberg will

flower right into winter. Begin applications

of rose fertilisers to rose bushes and dead

head flowers regularly. Mulch with fresh

compost.

Lawns

Even though we have had just a small

amount of rain, work can now begin on

renovating existing lawns or sowing a new

one. Lawn fertiliser can be safely applied

this week – make sure it is watered in

well. Regular mowing can begin again to

encourage strong, healthy grass growth.

Shrubs and ornamentals

Add compost around all existing

shrubs and ornamentals. Hold off

purchasing new plants until around May

when new season specimens start arriving

at garden centres.

With a modern 252sqm four bedroom home combined

with a modern fully self- contained two bedroom

(67sqm) cottage, this is a mouth-watering prospect.

Lifestyle properties in this location so close to Lincoln

Township and Lincoln University are indeed rare

modern lifestyle comes with an established garden

and mature shelter.

The sun-soaked living areas open seamlessly to

the expansive patio that includes an outdoor fire

and enough bench-seating to accommodate large

gatherings of friends and family.

Completing the setup is an extra-large six bay shed

(two lockup bays with concrete floor). Everything on

this property is immaculately presented including the

paddocks, fencing and access lanes.

Our owners have enjoyed their time here and they have

loved establishing this remarkable lifestyle however they

have made the difficult decision to leave. Having made

that decision to sell their instructions are loud and clear.

Don’t miss this opportunity to view one of the

smartest and sensible lifestyle properties you will find.

Call now or hasten to the next open home.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Selwyn real estate teams up

Well known real estate firm Property

Brokers recently joined forces with the

Farmlands’ real estate arm. The aim is to

complement the residential and lifestyle

sales, offering a more specialised Real

Estate service to the farming community

and people living in the towns throughout

Selwyn.

The long-term partnership arrangement

has enabled Farmlands to tap into the

expertise and systems of an established

and recognised real estate identity. For

Property Brokers, this strategic alliance

has increased their reach and resources,

ensuring even greater efficiency in serving

their clientele.

The merger of real estate services

allows Property Brokers greater access to

the rural market and offers the ability to promote

through Farmlands’ regular marketing and

networking programme. This reaches around 75,000

shareholders, many of whom are local farmers.

Farmlands will still offer a real estate service to

the local farming community without the need to

manage this aspect on a day to day basis.

All Farmlands’ real estate staff have transferred

to Property Brokers, ensuring client continuity

while increasing the pool of knowledge, skill and

resources; totalling twenty salespeople and nine

support staff.

“With greater resources and expertise, Property

Brokers is an even more credible alternative for

the Selwyn market. We have a team of committed

and genuine people along with a more extensive

nationwide network reaching more buyers. The

potential is for even better results,” suggests Tony

Quayle, Property Brokers’ Branch Manager Selwyn.

Property Brokers’ Lincoln office

The firm’s salespeople and support staff are based

in four offices: Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and

Rolleston allowing Property Brokers to be well

placed to serve the people of Selwyn. The Darfield

and Leeston offices are also supported by Farmlands

stores in those towns.

Tony says the changes are hugely exciting and

along with a planned move for both their Darfield

and Rolleston offices they have been quite busy.

Property Brokers specialises in residential,

lifestyle, rural and commercial property sales as

well as property management. This translates to a

wide network of services and market opportunity.

They are a local business (not a franchise) with an

emphasis on working as a team, where their people

work where they live and support their community.

“Everyone at Property Brokers is working towards

the same goal and aiming to provide a 10 out of 10

service. One of our core values is: if we shake your

hand we mean it,” explains Tony.
