Pubs gearing up to reopen

District’s

economy

‘should

pick up’

PREPARED: Will Stock is ready to get The Famous Grouse taps pouring again.

• By Devon Bolger

BARS IN the district are

gearing up to fully reopen from

tomorrow.

Many opened last week as

restaurants and cafes as part of

the Government’s alert level 2

hospitality staggered start.

But it is fairly much back to

normal from tomorrow, a relief

for those in the industry.

Said Lincoln’s Famous

Grouse Hotel manager Will

Stock: “I think the community

are excited to come and have

a draft beer. We have had

massive support from the

they cannot wait to be serving

patrons again.

A MAJOR player in the district’s

construction industry says he

is confident the economy will

bounce back from Covid-19.

An initial report prepared by

economic analysts Infometrics

in April predicts the district’s

economy could contract by 5.4

per cent because of the effects of

Covid-19.

The report

projects the 5.4 per

cent contraction

will occur over

the year to March

2021.

The construction

sector is likely to

be the hardest hit,

which could see a

reduction of 27 per cent,

Russell

Lilley

while accommodation and food

services could reduce by 22 per

cent.

Russell Lilley, owner of Russell

Lilley Construction, which helped

to build Rolleston Square said the

figures surprise him.

“I didn’t think construction

would be hit as hard as hospitality

and accommodation.

Quarry appeal period extended

• By Devon Bolger

AN OPPONENT of the

controversial quarry near

Weedons has managed to have

the time to appeal against it

extended.

Fulton Hogan was last month

given permission to develop the

170ha quarry between Dawsons,

Jones, Maddisons and Curraghs

Rds.

But a resident who lives near

where the quarry will go has

successfully applied to the

Environment Court to have the

appeal deadline extended to

June 29 because of the impact of

Covid-19.

The appeal time limit had

originally been scheduled to

expire on Monday.

The resident, who didn’t want to

be named, told the Selwyn Times

he plans to use his own money

and seek donations from the community

to fund the appeal.

BATTLE: Submitters will now be able to appeal the decision

to allow the Roydon Quarry near Templeton to go ahead until

June 29. ​

Individuals or groups who

made submissions during the

resource consent process are

able to appeal the decision.

Residents in the area are

gravely concerned about

the health, noise, and environmental

impacts the developments

will bring.

The quarry could open in

2022, producing more than half

a million tonnes of gravel a year

over the next 40 years.

Environment Canterbury

received 329 public submissions

against the proposed quarry out

of a total of 430.

The submissions came from

a wide scope of residents and

businesses.

Meanwhile, the Christchurch

City Council, which submitted

against the quarry, has decided

not to pursue an appeal.

This was after studying the

commissioners’ decision and

seeking a further independent

expert and legal advice.

The submission was made

through the Waipuna/Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board on behalf of the city

council.

The decision not to appeal

was made in the confidential

segment of the city council

meeting last Thursday to ensure

the legal advice obtained could

be discussed by elected members

in detail.

Weedons

Residents Association

member

Simon Moore

made an individual

submission

opposing

Simon Moore

the quarry.

He said

he would

financially support an appeal if

needed.

Mr Moore said the city

council’s decision not to make an

appeal was very disappointing.

“It’s just a matter of roll over

and let it happen I guess. What

can I say? They don’t think it’s

worth fighting a battle for their

people at Templeton.’’

He said the people of

Templeton will remember the

decision of the city council.

In Brief

ANNUAL PLAN SUBMISSIONS

A total of 80 submissions have

been made on the district

council’s Annual Plan. Sixty

people have also weighed

in on the plan via an online

survey. A district council

spokesman said it is a higher

number of submissions than

would generally be expected at

this stage of the process. They

have not yet undertaken any

analysis of the topics covered in

the submissions. A key item in

the consultation is the proposal

to review the rate increases

proposed for 2020/21. Public

consultation will close on

Friday.

HUSKY RESCUE FUNDS

Donations to help Husky Rescue

NZ during the Covid-19 crisis

have begun to dry up meaning

it may have to downsize. The

charity, which is based in

Rolleston, is aiming to fundraise

$32,000 a month to cover the

cost of caring for its dogs.

Founder Michelle Attwood

said they received $27,000 in

donations last month but have

only raised about $7000 so far

this month. To help Husky

CONFIDENT: Low interest rates will mean the construction industry in the

district will bounce back according to major building company owner

Russell Lilley.

Employment expected

to decline by 2100 jobs

• From page 1

“We have a bit of work

to do at the moment. It

should begin to pick up

even more now in level 2,”

he said.

Mr Lilley said he is not

worried at all about the

future of construction in

the district.

“The interest rates are

so low at the moment, of

course things will bounce

back. You would be crazy

not to build right now.

“I am 70-years-old, I

have been through a lot

of stuff, I have never been

through a pandemic but

I’ve been through times

when interest rates were 28

per cent. That was in the

80s.”

The Infometrics report

shows transport, postal

and warehousing activities

could fall by 16 per cent.

Professional, scientific

and technical services

would be reduced by eight

per cent, while retail and

wholesale trade would fall

by six per cent.

Consumer spending and

traffic volumes were down

substantially during the

lockdown.

Employment in Selwyn

March 2021, a drop of

8.6 per cent – but lower

than the forecast national

decline of 9.8 per cent.

Job losses are expected at

all skill levels.

The loss of jobs means

the overall unemployment

rate in Selwyn is forecast

to rise from 2.3 per cent in

the March 2020 quarter, to

7.1 per cent in March 2021.

Council chief recognised with award

• By Devon Bolger

THE DISTRICT council’s chief

executive David Ward has been

commended for his work in

local government.

He received the president’s

award for distinguished

contribution to the Society

of Local Government

Managers.

Mr Ward said he is proud

and honoured to have

received the award.

Said a society

spokesman: “David

is a long-term and

significant supporter

of SOLGM. He has

been a member since

2003 and has been

heavily involved in two SOLGM

working parties spanning more

than 15 years,’’ he said.

David Ward ​

Mr Ward joined the

finance working party

in 2004 and became

chairman in 2009, a

position he retained

until 2017.

THe spokesman said

Mr Ward is also a strong

supporter and mentor

to the young leaders that report

to him.

“He has supported them to

attend the executive leaders

programme and several

have gone on become chief

executives.

“In Selwyn, David established

a young leaders group, which

is co-chaired by two different

young leaders each year. Under

his direction they establish a

speaker programme for their

monthly meetings which

includes both internal and

external speakers. They have

a framework of learning from

others and learning from

themselves.”

Mr Ward was appointed

as the district council chief

executive in 2013. His contract

was recently extended until

2023.

Before his current position he

was the chief executive of the

Sites under evaluation for

second Rolleston high school

• By Devon Bolger

PLANNING FOR a second high

school in Rolleston has taken

another step forward.

Work is ongoing to acquire

land for the school and the Ministry

of Education is currently

evaluating a number of sites.

Engagement with other local

schools and the community has

been delayed due to Covid-19,

but is expected to get this under

way at the beginning of term 3

in July.

A Ministry of Education

spokeswoman said they are

unable to provide detail on the

sites being considered at this

stage.

“So as not to prejudice or

disadvantage our ability to carry

out commercial negotiation.”

The ministry has previously

been in discussions with

Rolleston College about the new

school.

The Ministry of Education

funds land purchases through

its capital budget.

The ministry’s Canterbury

National Education Growth

Plan 2030 predicts Rolleston

College could reach its capacity

of 1800 students by 2027/28.

Meanwhile, the establishment

board of trustees for the new

Rolleston East School has been

appointed.

“The board will oversee the

development and construction

of the year 1-8 school at Acland

Park,” the spokeswoman said.

Spiders that spend

entire life in a tunnel

TRAPDOOR spiders (Cantuaria

species) are large (20-30mm

long) arachnids, of which there

are more than 40 endemic

species in New Zealand.

THese spiders are characterised

by a serrated comb used for

digging. They live in a hole in the

ground about 10mm in diameter

and 15-30cm deep.

Contrary to its name, not all

species have trapdoors on their

holes. Those species that do have

hinged trapdoors have a highly

camouflaged, circular silk lid

woven with debris from the

ground.

Cantuaria spend their entire

life in their tunnel apart from

when mature males leave to seek

a mate in winter. Prey that come

too close to the hole entrance

are snaffled and pulled back into

their tunnel for consumption.

Lincoln Univesity PhD student

Victoria Smith used beetles

tethered to cotton thread to

entice trapdoor spiders out of

their holes for a study. Trapdoor

spiders can be parasitised by

pompilid wasps that specialise

in attacking larger spiders.

These wasps sting and paralyse

the spider, drag it back to a nest

where they then lay an egg in it.

THe wasp larva will develop

inside the paralysed spider,

finally killing it when it eats its

vital organs. Trapdoor spiders

are also parasitised by large

nematodes (round worms).

THese nematodes brainwash

the spider to find water, where

the nematodes emerge to

complete their lifecycle.

Although this usually occurs

in natural waterbodies, I know

of one case in Lincoln where a

trapdoor spider and nematode

was found in a water bowl left for

pets.

Rolleston College

Enrolments 2021

Our mission is to empower our learners to transform their lives, communities and futures.

Whakamanatia ngā ākonga kia pikia ngā taumata o nāianei, o ngā tau kei te heke mai, ā-tangata, ā-hapori hoki.

Principal’s Message:

In 2017, Rolleston College became the first new

secondary school to open in the South Island for

more than 50 years. Four years after welcoming its

first cohort of 220 Year 9 students, we now have

a roll of over 950 students across Years 9 – 12.

At Rolleston College, we create a culture where

every learner can stand and succeed as the unique

individual that they are. Our school values enhance

learner’s opportunities to live our school values

as they Develop Self, Build Communities and

Transform Futures. Rolleston College has been

designed to be modern and future-focused with a

physical design which reflects our vision for studentcentred,

personalised teaching and learning. State of

the art facilities paired with a solid record of NCEA

achievement makes Rolleston College the obvious

choice for your child’s secondary education.

Rachel Skelton, Principal

Our Learning

At Rolleston College we have top class facilities and

an exciting and diverse academic programme that

meets the needs of the individual learner.

The curriculum framework is designed to ensure that

the delivery of learning is innovative, learner centred,

skills relevant and cover all aspects of the New

Zealand Curriculum (NZC, 2007).

The Learning Vehicles:

Ako - learners meet with their learning coach to

monitor their progress, develop their personalised

inquiry programme and develop their individual

literacy and numeracy programme as well as their

health and wellbeing programme.

Connected - this is a multidisciplinary approach

to skill and knowledge development and allows

for an authentic context of learning in the areas of

mathematics, science, social science and English.

Selected - learners choose from a range of enrichment

options - from technology, to music, forensic science

to sports specific and all that lies in between.

Senior School:

In the senior years, learners will continue their

journey in advanced learning environments that

will prepare learners for academic success and

achievement. The Rolleston College Curriculum aims

at enabling learners to gain an idea of their passions

and purpose in life. Learners will work towards

NZQA certified qualifications (NCEA).

Wellbeing:

Rolleston College is one of many New Zealand

schools to implement the Ministry of Education

Positive Behaviour for Learner School Wide

Framework. At our school this framework has been

adapted to work within the context of our school

and our learners. The purpose of Positive Behaviour

for Learning-School Wide (referred to as Ready to

Learn at Rolleston College) is to ensure the Rolleston

Spirit is flourishing within our school. The staff have a

strong belief that learners need to be Ready to Learn

and Ready to Flourish. As part of our wellbeing

programme we have a strong emphasis on our ‘Check

and Connect’ programme.

Check & Connect

Our School Values

The qualities that make up the Rolleston Spirit

identify the key values and dispositions that are

important for our learners to develop during their

time at Rolleston College. They focus on developing

the individual learner’s awareness of self, community

and future.

Developing the Rolleston Spirit will equip learners to...

The Rolleston Spirit

Check and Connect:

This is a way of connecting with our learners on a

daily basis and in all learning vehicles. There are a

variety of ways that Check and Connect can operate

- with the essential outcome being that all learners

know that they have staff who care, are ready to help,

and work together to create a flourishing learning

environment. The learners can use and practice

the tools from their kete, just as you would use and

practice numerical skills.

C.A.S.E (Culture, Arts, Sport, Education Outside

the Classroom)

Co-curricular activities are an important part of

life in Rolleston College and the wider community.

We provide a wide range of sports and physical

activities as well as a wide range of arts related and

cultural opportunities.

Enrolment Information

Enrolments are now open for 2021

for all those within our school zone.

Online enrolment forms can be

found on our website under the

Enrolments Tab’.

Providing families with random acts of kindness

Natasha Oliver has been

managing donations for

struggling families at

Christmas for three years.

The Rakaia resident

speaks to Devon Bolger

about her work with

the Selwyn Kindness

Initiatives group and her

passion for helping those

in need

How did the idea for the

group begin?

Just over three years ago I

wanted to have a box made up

for everything in it that people

could have for Christmas

Day. I was thinking roast

meat, vegetables, decorations,

Christmas trees and presents.

I thought about how I could

start it and went around to a

few local businesses and put the

word out. I didn’t have much of

anything at that point and it is

quite hard to get things started

when people don’t know who

you are. I managed to get the

vegetables from Healthy Harvest,

about $5000 worth of Christmas

decorations from The Warehouse

and we got brand new presents

from within the community.

My garage was full of stuff and

there were plenty of trips to

The Warehouse to pick up the

decorations. I was thinking well

what do I do now? How do we

get the word out to those people

that don’t have anything? I found

that process quite tricky but I

decided to ask for nominations

of people to give them to. I found

that people would nominate

people who really didn’t need

it and want to use it more of a

thank you or sympathy gift and

that was hard because I wanted

to make sure the boxes went to

families who had nothing. It

was still really nice and we got

some great feedback such as we

would drop a box off to a school

and it would go to a family who

needed it within that school

community. My family and I did

that off our own backs. We spent

two days delivering and it took

us quite a while. The following

year I knew I was going to need

a team and that’s when I started

the group. We had about 40

volunteers collecting food for

about three months the first

year and the second year we had

about 30-something. There was

a period a couple of years ago

where I asked volunteers to come

forward who had time to give

such as lawn mowing and home

cooking, things like that. We

had that running for about three

months and matched them with

people in need.

What community work has

the group done most recently?

I had some Easter buckets

from New World in the North

Island in my possession and

I knew there are obviously

going to be some children in

the community missing out on

Easter this year because of their

family’s financial situation. I

pulled the buckets out, contacted

Rainbow Confectionery through

a friend of mine who sent

down some Easter eggs and

then Covid-19 happened and

we had to hold off. I thought

we would add some colouring

and things so the kids would

have something to do. We have

just been waiting for them to

hand out and I dropped them

off last week all sanitised and

everything. I anonymously

dropped off two buckets to a

family in Rolleston and found

out later that night the kids

thought the Easter bunny had

been released out of lockdown

so he could deliver the eggs for

them. I like to jump and run so

people don’t know where the

goodies have come from because

some people didn’t want people

to know they had nominated

them. We were lucky enough

to have all of the boxes for food

collections donated by Storage

King Rolleston for Christmas

last year. We now drop off all of

the food to the Ellesmere Food

Bank because they cover quite

a wide area around the district

and they know who does really

need it.

Why did you choose

Rolleston as the base for the

initiative?

Rolleston is our go-to in

terms of shopping, petrol and

everything. We think it is a

good metropolitan area for the

initiative. I don’t want to get too

big and try to cover too much,

we are just trying to do what we

can.

What is next for the group?

We are always looking for

volunteers. I am trying to get a

team together to meet up soon,

hopefully in the next couple of

months. I have only so many

ideas, whereas a team would

have many more than I. I am

wanting to start getting prepared

for Christmas this year. I am so

thankful for the people who have

been a part of these initiatives for

the last three years.

The group is heading into its

fourth year now, what keeps

you going?

Knowing there are people out

there much worse off than I. I am

grateful for what I have, I want

to pay it back. I just sort of do

what I can. I was a single mum 20

years ago and I know how hard

it is for some families. Christmas

is my favourite time of the year

and I hate the idea of going away,

sitting there on Christmas Day

and having everything we need

knowing there are families out

there who have nothing. I just

can’t deal with that. It probably

has a lot to do with the fact that I

have empathy and I absorb all the

wrongdoings of the world and I

mourn for all of the sad things.

What do you do for work?

At the moment I am working

at Little India Restaurant in

Rolleston. I have been working

there since late last year. I have

been in hospitality for eight

years. I trained as a teacher and

then jumped into hospitality

after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake and haven’t looked

back. Another avenue I am

wanting to follow is supporting

hospitality businesses. I know

a lot of them are closing down

now which is sad. I haven’t quite

worked out how to follow that

path but we will see.

Could you tell me a bit about

your family?

I am married to a soldier based

at Burnham Military Camp. I

have two children and they are

21 and 23.

Fresh, local products

to your door

A collaboration of two Darfield-based businesses

has taken Selwyn by storm. When Johnny Fresh

Darfield and Greendale Butchery decided to

work together to supply the district with a

unique delivery service, Fresh on Wheels, the two

businesses never dreamed they would receive

such a huge demand for their service and have

such a positive impact on people’s lives, especially

during the Covid-19 lockdown period.

Johnny Fresh Darfield manager Mel Tapa says the

fresh produce and meat delivery service became a

lifeline for people living in isolation.

“People really looked forward to seeing the drivers;

kids waved to them from their windows and made

signs to welcome us. It was a real highlight

of our day, knowing we were helping

people who relied on us.”

Fresh on Wheels is the

brainchild of Greendale

Butchery owners Bronwyn

and Matt Dering and

Johnny Fresh Darfield

owner John Heasley and

manager, Mel. Bronwyn

and Mel got together in

late November 2019 to

work out how the service

would operate and soon

got it off the ground, the

operation streamlined

as their experience and

knowledge grew. The service

now delivers to around 300

customers across the Selwyn District

and is steadily growing.

Both businesses pride themselves on offering

fresh, local, quality products. Bronwyn says

Greendale Butchery is a boutique, family owned

and operated business with a small team, creating

award winning smallgoods, bacon and ham.

Johnny Fresh Darfield, says Mel, is a green grocer

that focusses on supplying quality fruit and

vegetables, ordered daily to keep their produce

fresh for their customers.

Fresh on Wheels meat and produce packs can be

ordered on a weekly basis on their Facebook page,

where customers can view variations of meat and

produce packs.

“The new packs, with photos and an order form,

are launched every Sunday night,” says Mel. “We

vary the packs each week and try to co-ordinate

the meat and vegetables so people can create

meals that work together.”

The packs are affordable and family-sized

with a range of purchasing options

including meat, vegetables, and

fruit; meat and vegetables;

vegetables and fruit; meat,

fruit or vegetables only, along

with top ups and add ons.

Deliveries are Tuesday to

Friday – with Kirwee and

West Melton on Tuesdays;

Rolleston and Burnham

on Wednesdays; and

Prebbleton and Lincoln on

Thursdays. Areas local to

Darfield including Hororata,

Sheffield, Waddington,

Springfield and Oxford work on

a click and collect basis.

The Fresh on Wheels team is excited

about their service and looks forward to

providing Selwyn communities with a professional

service supplying local, fresh products.

online community, visit their Facebook page:

back to Auckland last season after

five years with Canterbury Country,

burst onto the international

stage this summer with player of

the match performances in his

debut home ODI and test series

against highly-rated India.

“Kyle’s performances against

the might of India were nothing

years of age he’s certainly got a big

future,” he said.

As part of the formal contracting

procedure, the New Zealand

Cricket Players Association was

consulted and it expressed satisfaction

the process, as outlined

in the master agreement, was

adhered to.

Players offered central

Ransley second

and 20 points

clear of third

PREBBLETON’S Jaden Ransley

sits in outright second with three

rounds remaining of the eSport

Cup virtual motorsport series.

Round eight tomorrow night is

at Silverstone, the home of British

racing.

Ransley, 18, had a consistent

seventh round last week.

After a self-confessed “shocker”

during qualifying where he

managed 12th on the Oran Park

track near Sydney, he managed

sixth and third to remain well in

contention for the title.

“We had a bit of a shocker in

qualifying so we were on the

back foot from there but we

had good momentum and good

speed throughout the night

which helped,” he said.

“We now have a 20-point

buffer to third which is great

with three rounds to go.”

Ransley said the two races did

not always go smoothly but he

managed to avoid major issues.

“In turn one of race two I

got taken out but only suffered

minor damage so I could keep

going.

“Keeping out of trouble, especially

on a track like that which

is small and tight is the way to

go.

“I’m learning from the other

tracks not to be so aggressive on

the first few laps and to just let

things unfold in front of me,” he

said.

Council services and facilities

reopen under Level 2

Welcome back! Most Council services and facilities are back to normal under COVID-19 Alert

Level 2 conditions, but with some restrictions or reduced services.

The Council’s Rolleston offices, including AA services, are open Monday to Friday, 8.30am–5pm.

Selwyn libraries have also reopened – initially with reduced hours. Darfield and Leeston Library

and Service Centre will be open from 10am–4pm Monday to Saturday, while Lincoln Library and

gradually resuming.

Parks, reserves, playgrounds and sports areas are open, but users are reminded to practice

safe distancing. The Foster Park Playground and Rolleston Skate Park will remain closed until at

least 25 May because of public health requirements. The limits on gathering numbers, along with

requirements for contact tracing and cleaning, mean it is not possible to open them at present.

People using playground equipment are encouraged to wash or sanitise their hands before and

after use.

Building consents processing and building inspections will resume as normal.

Dog microchipping clinics have restarted using a booking system. If your dog is registered with

Customers planning to visit our offices or service centres are asked to note the following health

and safety requirements:

· Numbers of people entering the building may be limited to help manage safe distancing

· All visitors must sign-in on entry for contact tracing purposes

Please also consider delaying your visit to the Council offices for a few days, especially for nonurgent

enquiries, while staff settle in to new systems and routines.

People can also use online services or contact us by phone, 0800 SELWYN (735996) or email

contactus@selwyn.govt.nz or via the Council website or on the Snap Send Solve app.

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads

Tennyson Street is closed from 43 Tennyson Street to the Rolleston Police Station

due to the Rolleston Town Centre infrastructure upgrade and from 96 Tennyson

Street to the Lowes Road intersection for three weeks. The closure is to allow for

the renewal of a section of the sewer main that runs along the centre of Tennyson

Street. A detour will be in place via Michelangelo Drive for vehicles heading

south along Tennyson Street. Lowes Road will be open to two way traffic west of

Tennyson Street and one way eastbound, east of Tennyson Street.

Jones Road will be closed to the north and south of the roundabout until 29 May to allow important

sealing work to get the road through the winter and to reduce. A detour is in place.

One lane of Trents Road is closed heading south east away from Springs Road while upgrades are

made to the sewer system. Traffic management is in place. Culvert construction is taking place on

Malvern Hills Road. Traffic management is in place.

Here’s the plan

Selwyn well placed to recover

from pandemic impacts

Selwyn’s diverse economy and strong agricultural base are likely to

reduce the impact of COVID-19 on the district’s economy, a report

by economic analysts Infometrics shows.

The report, prepared in April, projects Selwyn’s economy will

contract by about 5.4 percent over the year to March 2021.

Employment is expected to decline by 2,100 jobs or by 8.6 percent

– lower than the forecast national decline of 9.8 percent.

The overall unemployment rate is forecast to rise to 7.1 percent in

March 2021, compared to 9 percent nationally. House prices are

also expected to decline 10.8 percent between December 2019 and

December 2021, before gradually recovering.

Primary sector exports are expected to hold up and food product

manufacturing will expand slightly, supporting the district’s longerterm

recovery.

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says many households and

businesses in Selwyn have been hard hit by this pandemic, but

there are positives too.

“It will take time for us to recover, but because we are less exposed

to the international tourism market we’re better off than many other

parts of the country.

“It’s clear the construction boom will take a hit – but we know

Selwyn offers a great lifestyle and affordable housing options that

will remain attractive to many families.

“Another real strength in Selwyn is our agricultural sector – and

it’s encouraging to see that primary exports and food production

are forecast to remain stable. I hope we’ll see employment

opportunities open up in those sectors too.”

The Council has a central part to play in the recovery, he says. “One

of the key things we can do is maintain a steady programme of

infrastructure projects that support local communities, along with

the essential services our residents rely on.

“We’re also talking with community and business leaders about

what the future looks like, and how we can work together to build a

stronger Selwyn. That will include things like making the most of our

rural character and strong local networks, finding ways to support

local businesses and encouraging locals and visitors to explore our

outstanding natural environment.”

The full Infometrics report is available on the Council website.

Selwyn Open – ahead of the game

As part of our Selwyn Open campaign we’re profiling some of the many excellent businesses local to

you. You can find these businesses on the Selwyn Business Directory at selwyn.govt.nz/directory

This week we talk to Andrew and Priscilla Foster from Magnitude Sports Rolleston.

As we reach the point where we can return to our favourite games, Selwyn’s only sports store

Magnitude Sports is re-opening its doors.

The store first opened its doors in February last year in Faringdon, later moving to a bigger store in

Rolleston’s town centre.

During Alert Levels 4 and 3, they kept going with online orders, product deliveries, contactless pickups,

advice over the phone and social media competitions with prizes.

With the number of sports clubs and events in Selwyn, the couple felt there was a need for a sports

store in Selwyn, saving residents a drive into Christchurch city.

“There’s no one else in Selwyn doing what we’re doing. We’ve got some pretty cool products that will

save people from going into town to get them,” Andrew said.

The store offers everything from fishing to footwear, home fitness gear and even sometimes motocross

products, all supplied from New Zealand wholesalers, except for some overseas clothing brands.

“We try to keep it as local as we can.”

And if there’s anything they don’t have, Andrew says they are happy to order stock in.

The Fosters have lived in Selwyn for 14 years and,

with their children Jacob and Libby, are involved

with local rugby, netball and football clubs. Living

locally helps them keep up with local needs. They

pride themselves on customer service and advice

that can sometimes get lost in bigger stores,

Andrew says.

The store also supports the community by donating

prizes to raffles and collaborating with sports clubs

and local schools.

“We’re just local people trying to get our business up

and running. We want to thrive and get bigger so we

can help out the community.”

Be road safety aware – think small

As we get back to moving around under Alert Level 2 this week we’re asking people to think small and

look out for our children on the roads.

Over 10,000 children go to school in Selwyn – that’s nearly 20% of our population – and many are on

the move, heading back to school this week.

Selwyn School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler is encouraging everyone to keep their eyes

peeled for our young people heading back to school by foot and on wheels.

For those heading to school here are some travel safety tips:

· Be bright and be seen. Ask your school for a safety vest.

· Tackle the routes together, talking about sneaky driveways and blind corners.

· Get out and active together to reduce the chaos at the school gate.

· Wear your helmets – this goes for caregivers too… young people are watching you!

We’re heading

back to school

warm, late-summer evening, early this year international students

from Lincoln University’s Master of Science in Food Innovation meet

at a house near Lincoln’s Liffey stream.

Their host, toxicology Professor Ravi Gooneratne, interrupts the

chattering with a big smile to thank everyone for coming.

It is a privilege to work with young people from different countries

and cultures, he says. Originally from Sri Lanka, he says he can

relate to these students after studying for his PhD in Australia and

teaching in Canada before moving to Lincoln.

“I treat them as my sons and daughters to a large extent. I invite

them to my place about twice a year and we have an evening where

they bring their cultural dishes so we get a chance to taste all the

different dishes from different countries.”

Ravi, his wife and their two young children moved to Lincoln in 1988

after six years at the University of Saskatchewan, where winters

reach -40 degrees Celsius.

The neighbours in Lincoln were very friendly, helping him settle. He

joined the Lincoln Rotary club in 1994, becoming president in 2005.

“We have really enjoyed our stay in New Zealand and we have met a

lot of friends. The Lincoln community is fantastic.”

He’s even kept the same hairdresser from when he first arrived.

“I’ve been paying the 1988 rates, even now she hasn’t increased the

amount she charges,” he laughs.

Every so often he visits the local Buddhist temple, gathering with

friends from the Sri Lankan community. He also continues to travel,

visiting family in Sri Lanka each year and working as a professor at

two Universities in China; Guangdong and Jiangnan.

In 2018 he was awarded a key to the city of Zhanjiang for

his outstanding contribution to its economic, cultural, social,

educational and international relations.

Govt helps primary sector

prepare for future droughts

A new $500,000 fund will help farmers

and growers prepare their businesses to

recover from drought as the economy gets

moving again, according to Agriculture

Minister Damien O’Connor.

The fund provides advisory services

that usually cost $5000 to equip rural

businesses with professional and technical

advice to help them recover from and

better prepare for future drought.

“As we rebuild the economy following

the effects of a global pandemic, we

have an opportunity to build back better

than before and factor in resilience for

our productive primary sector,” Damien

O’Connor said.

“So far this year the Government has

invested $17 million to help droughtstricken

regions recover from what many

are saying is the worst drought in living

memory. It has affected all of the North

Island and a good portion of the South.

“Although there has been a bit of rain

relief recently, it takes steady rain at the

right time to get grass growing again. The

flow-on effects of water shortages and low

feed availability take a long time to fully

recover from and some farmers will be

dealing with the effects of this drought for

a year or more.

”One of the unusual consequences of the

drought has already started to be noticed

by consumers – that being the paler colour

of our butter.

“As the saying goes ‘you are what

you eat’. The same goes for cows. New

Zealand’s unique pasture-based farming

system gives our butter a wonderful yellow

colour. The shortage of grass and reliance

on supplementary feed has meant our

butter has started to turn white. A return

to yellow will maintain our competitive

advantage in our export markets.

“We know that, with climate change, we

can expect more acute weather events so

it’s important we help farmers and growers

get their businesses ready for future

drought.

“Key to recovery is making good

decisions, based on sound advice. The

purpose of this new fund is to ensure our

farmers and growers can tap into this

advice.

“The fund will address the longer-term

issues but there are also ongoing, acute

issues that need to be addressed with

urgency. Access to feed is the biggest

acute issue so two feed coordinators are

in place as of today, one in the North

Island and another in the South, to make

“The primary sector has shown time and

again it has the strength, resilience and

ability to recover from tough times and

come back stronger than ever. I have every

faith that – with this support – they’ll get

through this too.’’

The fund will be managed by the

Ministry for Primary Industries and will

pay for recovery advisory services of up to

$5000 (excl GST) for selected applications

in drought-affected regions.

Funding can be used for a range of

advisory services and drought-related

advice, like:

Strategic planning and the development

of farm business plans

Practical, on-the-ground advice and

support like land management and

sustainable management techniques

Technical advice on soil and pastures,

New tech career in less than a year

Tech is big and getting bigger. The technology sector boomed

in 2019, cementing its position as one of our largest export

earners according to the latest annual TIN (Technology

Investment Network) Report. The number of people employed

by the technology sector increased by 7.9 per cent last year

to 51,569, and Canterbury’s tech revenue alone grew by 10.3

per cent. It has never been a better time to add tech to your

skill set and start your journey into NZ’s fastest growing sector.

The future is tech. Be part of it.

When it comes to the world of tech, the employment

opportunities are virtually limitless. SIGNAL’s SHIFT

programme was created to help you explore, experience

and embrace those opportunities, adding to your

qualifications and expanding your earning potential in this

vibrant, fast-paced sector.

SHIFT fast-tracks your tech learning with an industryfocused

one-year programme, that not only boosts your

skills, but gives you practical industry experience and an

industry network to help you move into tech.

Quick. Smart. Relevant.

SHIFT is an innovative industry-driven programme for

those who are seeking a new career path, who may or may

not have a tech background. Open to degree holders in

any discipline, SHIFT learners have come from diverse

backgrounds such as medicine, philosophy, sociology,

commerce, geography, marketing, engineering and

humanities.

And if you already have a tech related degree, you can

expand your expertise by focusing on a new area and

gaining valuable industry skills and connections.

A unique learning experience.

Using immersive studio-based learning and real-world

industry experience, SHIFT produces graduates with a

solid base of core tech skills, as well as the communication

and collaborative skills required in the tech industry.

SHIFT enables you to meet and work with local tech

employers. You will complete group projects with tech

mentors, and also gain experience via a 200-hour

placement within industry. This allows you to add value to

your host and to showcase your capabilities.

Opportunities.

Tech roles exist in nearly every area, from aviation to zoology,

and career possibilities are extensive. During SHIFT you

can focus on software design and development, business

analysis, data science, web design, project management,

user experience design, technical writing, service delivery,

and the list goes on.

Diversity is important in the tech sector. The best designed

products incorporate many viewpoints to meet customer

requirements. Tech firms are actively recruiting to increase

gender and ethnic diversity across their employees, and

can sometimes offer flexible hours and remote working

opportunities.

SHIFT starts July 2020 and limited partial

scholarships are also available.

opportunities exist and adding tech to your

current skills, join us online at one of our

Hyundai Ioniq ramps

up the EV market

WATCH OUT Toyota

Prius. The car that has

dominated the hybrid

market since its launch has

a serious competitor.

Enter Hyundai’s Ioniq – a

trendy hatchback that is

making big inroads into the

electric vehicle market.

Ioniq has been with us for

two or three years now and

is available as an electriconly

vehicle, a traditional

hybrid or, as in the test car’s

case, a petrol/electric plugin

hybrid.

Put simply, the latter has

the best of all worlds, you

can treat it as a standard

petrol-powered car and

never bother charging it, or

you can treat it as an electric

vehicle and charge the batteries

using a 230v supply.

My old home isn’t compatible

to the drain charging

places on the circuitry, so I’ll

never be an electric vehicle

owner, however, I fully support

those who see EVs as

the way of the future.

The Ioniq hybrid has a

four-cylinder engine of

1580cc. It has lowish power

outputs but because it has

the benefit of electric energy

in tandem there is still

sufficient power on hand.

Hyundai claim outputs of

77kW and 147Nm, with another

44.5kW and 170Nm

available through the electric

motor. Drive is channelled

through a six-speed

dual clutch transmission to

the front wheels.

Driving the Ioniq doesn’t

need any special technique.

Sure, you do have to have

a different mindset when it

comes to filling up, if you

do use the charging system

frequently you’ll want to

develop a system whereas it

just becomes second nature.

Of course, if the batteries

do run low the Ioniq, in this

form, will run happily all of

the time on fossil fuel.

The benefit of all of this

is low fuel use. The Ioniq

hybrid is rated by Hyundai

with a 1.1-litre per 100km

combined cycle average.

That is a bold claim that

can only be achieved under

best possible operating

conditions, however, the

fuel usage readout was

constantly listing around

5l/100km which I thought

was acceptable given many

of my journeys were at city

speeds with a lot of stopstart

driving.

I also took the hybrid on

much the same route as I

would normally use during

an evaluation. A fierce

nor’wester was blowing as

I tackled the roads west,

battle to start with, so that

was a fuel-saving challenge

in the first instance.

HYUNDAI IONIQ

PHEV: Part of an

extensive electric

range.

However, the Ioniq

served to prove it travels

much like any ‘normal’ car,

it cruises happily at the legal

limit and it was also quite

responsive when it came

time to overtake, that manoeuvre

can be completed

in about 6.5sec with a solid

burst of energy through

the mid-range. The Ioniq

PHEV will also launch to

100km/h in around 10sec.

On the subject of figures,

Hyundai claims a 52km

journey on electric power

only. Electric only drive can

be initiated through a pushbutton,

which would be ideal

for the weekday commute.

When the long straights

run out and the Ioniq is

pointed at some tricky corners,

it handles a lot better

than you might expect. Sure,

it’s no sports car, and you

could be forgiven for thinking

that with a lot of battery

power it is a heavy vehicle.

At 1500kg, that’s far from

the case, and what weight

there is in the batteries sits

low in the floorpan, so there

is a low centre of gravity.

That’s always conducive to

respectable handling, and

the Ioniq steers with strong

precision and perfect body

balance.

The Ioniq PHEV lands here

in two specifications, base

model and Elite; the test car

was the entry-level model

which has cloth trim, and that

would be my preference.

If you think that you

are going to be charged a

premium price for the Ioniq

hybrid, then think again. At

$53,990 it fares well against

its competitors, including

those from its partner Kia.

For interest’s sake an extra

$6k will buy you into Elite

specification, while a hybrid

without plug-in facility lists

at $46,990. As a guide to

where it sits in the Hyundai

line-up, an Ioniq EV Elite is

priced at $71,990.

The Ioniq is there for

those who don’t want a

sport utility vehicle and

who want to distance themselves

for whatever reason

from Prius. The concept of

the later and Ioniq is similar,

they are both liftbacks,

although the Ioniq is a little

more compact at 4.5m.

Nevertheless, it makes good

use of its proportions and

is a comfortable, easy car to

drive and to be in.

Quite clearly, Hyundai

has targeted the hybrid

market as a growth area, the

Ioniq in all forms represents

an environmentallyfriendly

option as to the

way we travel.

Personally, if I had to

go that way in a new car

purchase, the standard

hybrid would probably be

the choice. However, full

marks to Hyundai, having

such an extensive range will

only hold the company in

good stead.
