Five

million

reasons

to smile

AT 10 WEEKS old, Odette

Olive Deane’s start to life has

already been somewhat out of

the ordinary.

There’s a chance the chubbycheeked

tot from Rolleston born

on March 10 could be the five

millionth person in New Zealand

– and just two weeks after

she entered the world, the nation

went into lockdown.

Even in spite of the country’s

gradual return to normal, mother

Charlotte, 26, says things are

still no less “hectic” at the Deane

household as she runs around

after Odette and her 20-monthold

brother Walter.

Odette was born at Christchurch

Women’s Hospital around

the time Statistics NZ reckons

the country’s population ticked

over to five million.

The population has grown

from four million to five million

in 17 years thanks to a combination

of natural growth (births

minus deaths) and net migration

(arrivals minus departures).

Mrs Deane said it was “crazy”

to think her daughter could be

New Zealand’s five-millionth

person. • Turn to page 4

Bid to

expand

coal mine

meets stiff

opposition

• By Devon Bolger

A PROPOSED expansion of a

coal mine in the Malvern Hills

has brought opponents out in

their hundreds.

Bathurst Coal Ltd has applied to

expand its opencast mine, known

as Canterbury Coal Mine, at Bush

Gully Rd, near Colgate, by 18ha.

An Environment Canterbury

spokeswoman said it has received

about 500 submissions on the

proposal with the majority

opposing the extension.

Malvern Hills Protection

Society member Rosalie Snoyink,

which made a submission against

the proposal, said she is pleased

there has been a large number of

people weighing in on it.

“Clearly there is wide

public interest and concern

about the scale of the proposals,”

she said.

Malvern Hills resident Brian

Thompson said he opposed the

expansion in his submission.

“I think it’s great there has been

a large number of submissions. It

means you will get a wide area of

coverage.

TIME WILL tell whether

the hundreds of people

objecting to a bid to expand

an open cast coal mine will

be successful.

About 500 submissions

have been received over

Bathurst Coal Ltd’s plan for

an 18ha expansion in the

Malvern Hills (see page 1).

Most of the submissions

are against the plan.

But that won’t be an indication

the objectors will be

able to stop the expansion

when it goes to a hearing.

The Fulton Hogan quarry

near Weedons is a classic

example of that.

The quarry was given the

green light even though

there was huge opposition

to it.

An appeal against the

decision will cost a lot of

money.

Those fighting the

coalmine plan should start

saving their pennies.

Supermarket plans modified

THE PLANS for a Countdown

supermarket in Lincoln have

been modified in response to

feedback from the community.

Lincoln Developments Ltd

has applied to build and operate

a 3063m 2 supermarket in

the Flemington subdivision on

Birchs Rd, Lincoln, between

7am and 10pm seven days a

week.

Flemington developer Shane

Kennedy said he has spoken

with some people who have

expressed opposition to the

proposal and their feedback has

been used to improve it.

“We’ve significantly improved

the external design of the

building to reduce the visual

scale and improve the external

appearance, added more trees

to the car park and the street

frontage, as well as a low stone

wall with post and rail fencing.

We have added landscaping and

trees to the loading dock screening,

and reduced the height of

street signage.

“The car park layout has also

been changed and we can now

include two dedicated drivethrough

car parks for customers

with click and collect orders,”

he said.

Mr Kennedy said he is pleased

they have been able to make

the changes and is confident

the outcome will be better for

residents.

The new supermarket is expected

to create around between

70 to 90 new jobs.

“These will be a mixture of

full and part-time positions.

bolger@starmedia.kiwi

The café is likely to require

another five staff. These new

positions will make a significant

contribution to the Lincoln

community.”

The district council has

publicly notified the resource

consent application meaning

people can have their say on the

development.

The submission period ended

on Tuesday this week.

“The new Countdown will be

a vital part of this popular development

and it could be opening

its doors to shoppers late 2021 or

early 2022.

“The resource consent process

isn’t a public vote, but I

encourage local residents who

support the project to make a

submission to the council,” Mr

Kennedy said.

In March, Selwyn Times

reported a group of Flemington

residents opposed the proposed

location for the supermarket.

Family tracks down long-lost brother

• By Devon Bolger

PHIL RADFORD had no idea

his life would change with just

one Facebook message.

Mr Radford, 49, who was

adopted at five-weeks-old, received

a message from a woman

specialising in reconnecting

people – it said he had a sister in

the United Kingdom wanting to

contact him.

“I wasn’t sure if it was a windup

or something. I opened the

message and the thing that made

was five-weeks-old I was adopted

and she had mentioned my birth

name Chris James Dooks.

“I was a bit stunned but

thought why not? Let’s reconnect

and it just sort of went from

there. I ended up talking to my

sister about half an hour later,”

Mr Radford said.

His sister, Becca Main, lives

in York and helped connect him

with his birth mother, also in

York, within a matter of hours.

“It turns out I have got two sisters,

three nieces, two nephews,

a couple of uncles and about five

or six cousins I never knew.

“It has been absolutely amazing.

When it first happened I

wasn’t actually very emotional

about it, I was just numb but now

Mr Radford is a member of

Escalating numbers of Covid-19

cases in early March made Mrs

Deane “a bit more paranoid” than

normal preparing for birth.

But she had been reassured by

research showing babies and children

were less likely to catch the

disease and likely to have milder

symptoms.

Mrs Deane said the first weeks

of maternity leave required even

more isolating than normal. She

was only able to have one week of

home midwife visits, and feeding

Leeston flooding

The design for the

said a date for a hearing

is yet to be set but it is

required to be held within

75 days of the close of

submissions, meaning

it will be no later than

September 2.

Mr Thompson said he

“Construction on stage

said.

for the demolition was

this week following a site

The tavern was almost

Christmas Eve last year.

About 60 firefighters

were needed from across

Canterbury to tackle the

blaze.

The cause of the fire was

found to be an electrical

fault due to old wiring, Mr

Evans said.

“Full demolition, all

going to plan, will be completed

within two weeks

thereafter,’’ Mr Evans said.

He said negotiations

have started with the

insurance company for a

rebuild of the tavern.

Waste Management Ltd has

applied to expand its current site

plant at 305 Marshs Rd.

Resource consent was granted

for the proposed plant by the

Christchurch City Council in

December 2018.

ECan also granted three consents

for the plant’s construction

March 2019.

The consent application currently

It ran a limited notified

New science

building for

Lincoln Uni

LINCOLN University is set to

get a new science facility after

a $5 million boost from the

Government.

Acting vice-chancellor Professor

Bruce McKenzie said they

are welcoming ministerial

endorsement of their business

case for the construction of the

new facility.

“The endorsement demonstrates

the government’s confidence

in Lincoln University,

and means we can continue

our campus development programme,”

he said.

Education Minister Chris

Hipkins and Finance Minister

Grant Robertson confirmed

their endorsement for the business

case, releasing $5 million in

funding to progress the project

to the next stage.

Lincoln can now go to market

to tender for a construction

contractor.

Known as Science North, the

new facility will replace existing

earthquake-damaged buildings.

“Lincoln University has always

been a chief driver of innovation

in the land-based sector,

particularly in the food and fibre

sectors, and our new science

facilities will position us to take

an even more prominent role

in developing solutions for the

world’s most pressing environmental

challenges,’’ he said.

Science North is a part of a

wider campus development

programme for the university

that has already seen the launch

of new student social spaces,

landscaping projects and a series

of smaller general projects across

campus.

Our People

SELWYN TIMES

Robin Ashby

Hanging up fire helmet after 34 years

Robin Ashby is retiring

from firefighting after

34 years. The Rolleston

resident speaks

to reporter Devon

Bolger about his time

volunteering with the

Dunsandel and Rolleston

fire stations

How did you get started out

firefighting?

I started in 1986. I had bought

a house in Dunsandel where my

wife lived at the time and was

asked to join the fire brigade.

It was just a thing where if you

lived there and worked close

by you got asked. I did 25 years

there at Dunsandel. I got my gold

star award for 25 years of service.

I became the senior officer of

the brigade after about five years

which was unusual really for

someone so young but it just

happened to me. I went on to

become the chief fire officer.

What kept you going for 34

years?

After all that time, I think it

is just a habit. Throughout those

years I just enjoyed training

people and getting the best out

of them. A lot of people join up

and don’t have a lot of confidence

but after a few months and

a bit of training, they have

really blossomed. That is what

encourages me to carry on and

of course helping the community

too.

Why do you think people

should get into volunteer

firefighting?

It is an opportunity to get

some self-confidence. A lot of

people think they can’t do it but

with the encouragement of our

people, they get a lot of love and

support. It is not just firefighting,

there is also a lot of competitions

such as the combat and drivers’

challenges. We do a lot of school

visits and plenty of organisations

visit the station so there are all

these other activities you can get

involved in. I had the privilege

from 2010-2018 to be on the

New Zealand Fire national

health and safety committee

representing volunteers. I got a

lot of opportunities to explore

different things and I have been

to fire conferences all over the

country.

Have there been any standout

moments for you?

Responding to the CTV

building during the Canterbury

earthquake really stayed in my

mind. I don’t really know how

to describe it, you didn’t want to

be there but you were there so it

was good to help out. I did three

different shifts there on the fire

truck. One of my highlights has

to be in 2007 when I was selected

to go to Hobart in Australia for

an Australasian fire conference,

that was a bit of a milestone for

me. In 1991 I was selected by the

Rural Fire Research Group for a

scholarship in Dunedin. I spent

about two weeks in a paid station

there. I did more calls in two

weeks there than I did all year in

Dunsandel.

Do you have any plans for

your retirement?

I don’t actually have a lot

of spare time because I am

the secretary/treasurer of the

Mid Canterbury Fire Brigades

Sub Association. I am a life

member and a past president

of the association as well. I am

also a trustee for Canterbury

Provincial Fire Brigades

Association. I still have my

hand in the pie so to speak.

Unfortunately, I am not going to

see a lot of my friends who I have

met from all over the country

DEDICATION:

Robin Ashby

has stepped

down from

fighting fires

after 34 years.

He is seen

above at the

Woolston

Training

Centre in

2006.

but thank God for Facebook.

Could you tell me about the

Mid-Canterbury Fire Brigades

Sub Association?

They have a committee that

supports the staff and they run

the competitions such as the

combat challenge and things.

The original drivers’ challenge

was started by them here in

1996. They also host the

provincial drivers’ challenge.

Unfortunately, this year we

haven’t been able to have our

drivers’ challenge but that’s

what they do – help to provide

activities for the members of the

association.

What is your go-to karaoke

song?

It would have to be Matchbox

Twenty – I’m not Crazy.

Do you have a favourite

sports player or team?

That is easy, my favourite team

is the Crusaders. My favourite

sports player, well I can’t say me,

so I guess it is definitely Richie

McCaw. He is an incredible

ambassador for sport.

Do you have any hobbies or

skills outside of firefighting?

I enjoy playing golf. I am a

member of The Rock Rolleston’s

golf section and we meet to play

once a month. I’m quite tied

up with that. I also play in the

fire brigade golf tournaments,

provincial and South Island.

I have played rugby for the

Canterbury Fire Brigade between

1990-95 as well.

When did you move to

Rolleston and what do you like

about it?

I moved in 2011. It was a

great destination coming from

Dunsandel because there are

heaps of services available. I

got the opportunity to change

my occupation, I was in the

meat industry for 34 years

and all of a sudden I started

getting into truck driving so

Rolleston is good as it is quite

close to Christchurch. I have

a special-needs daughter and

it gives her the opportunity to

travel into Christchurch for work

experience and things like that

due to public transport whereas

there is no public transport for

Dunsandel. It really gave us a lot

of opportunities and being able

to see it grow the way it has is

just amazing.

Could you tell me a bit about

your family?

I have been married to my

wife Diane since 1983. I have

two adult daughters, Mandy is

34 and she works at a pharmacy

in Hamilton and there is Kylie

who has special-needs. She is

not physically handicapped,

she has dyspraxia so a learning

disability. She volunteers at a

doggy daycare in Christchurch

for three days a week. She goes

to activities such as the Selwyn

Launch Group. She has a busy

life.

ADVERTORIAL

Classic Builders

unshaken and

here to stay

Covid 19 is doing little to thwart

Classic Builders plans to continue

to build a presence in the greater

Christchurch area.

This week the company – which

set up shop in Christchurch 12

months ago – will go ahead as

planned and open its first Canterbury

showhome.

Classic Builders Christchurch

regional manager Dave Fahey says

the interest shown in the Classic

Builders brand in Christchurch over

the last 12 months provided added

incentive to establish the showhome,

which is in Acland Park, Rolleston.

“We have design and build projects

and house and land packages under

way and have had great feedback,”

Dave says.

Part of the last year had involved

putting together teams of subcontractors

and suppliers and introducing

the Classic Builders brand to a second

South Island city. The 23-year-old

business is New Zealand’s second-biggest

residential building company,

with a strong presence in the North

Island and with a Queenstown office

too.

“Classic Builders is a company with

heritage. Having been in the game

so long, the company has weathered

recessions before. We will survive the

Covid-19 challenges ahead too,” Dave

says.

Dave and his young family have

moved from the Queenstown office to

set up the base in his city of birth. A

builder by trade and former Burnside

High School student, Dave moved up

the ranks within the company from

builder to construction manager to

regional manager. It is Dave whom

visitors to the new showhome will

meet. People choosing to do business

with Classic Builders in the greater

Christchurch area will deal with Dave

from the start to finish of a project as

part of a “very personalised service”.

Dave says his Selwyn-based branch

services not only Christchurch, but its

surrounds – such as Ashburton and

Rangiora.

“Just hit us up to see how far we

spread, and feel free to brainstorm

with our designers too.

“Classic Builders is very much an

option for people still looking to build

– and we offer complimentary plans

with no obligation to go ahead and

build.”

The company deals in both house

and land packages and design and

build projects with its scope covering

entry level first home and land packages

through to architectural builds.

For those looking for ideas, Classic

Builders has a range of plans and they

can be modified.

Meanwhile, the showhome, which

will open on Wednesday, is called The

Craigieburn as a nod to the nearby

ranges which can be viewed from the

house. Located on a corner site, it features

a combination of white plaster

and natural cedar, with a large portico

gracing the front. It is a three-bedroom,

two-bathroom home with two

living areas and a double garage.

The showhome will be open for viewing

between 11am and 3pm Wednesday

to Friday, during the same time period

on Sunday, and by appointment. Dave

can be reached on dave.fahey@classicbuilders.co.nz

or on 021 196 1480.

The Foster Park Indoor Courts have moved a step closer to being indoors with the first framing for

the roof now in place.

The framework for the roof of the main courts was installed late last week.

Council Major Projects Manager John Reid says progress on the courts is moving along steadily

since work was able to restart under Alert Level 3 and the courts are on track to be completed

around April 2021, around one month behind the original schedule due to the Level 4 lockdown.

The indoor court facility includes eight courts, along with a 240 metre indoor walking track on the

mezzanine level and will serve sports teams from across the district.

Tennyson Street has also been reopened from 96 Tennyson Street to the Lowes Road intersection

as work progresses on the Tennyson Street and Lowes Road intersection upgrade. Work, as

part of this project, to install new sewer and water mains on Tennyson Street has almost been

complete. Work on new footpaths and drainage improvements is also underway, with the project

expected to be completed by the end of July, depending on the weather.

The Selwyn Aquatic Centre is aiming to reopen its Hydrotherapy and Learn to Swim pools from

Tuesday 2 June thanks to the work that was able to be completed under Level 3. Manager Active

Selwyn James Richmond says the centre is hoping to have the leisure pool open the following

week, depending on the health guidelines in place.

Work is also progressing on the Selwyn Health Hub, with ground works underway for the foundations.

Council working with community on new future

As we move into the post-lockdown environment the Council has been working with our community to

support the district into the new world we’re living in.

Council Chief Executive David Ward says it is apparent we’re moving to a new normal and the Council

is asking what this will look like and how we get there in the best possible shape.

During lockdown the Council has done everything in its power to keep services you rely on going, and

respond to the immediate needs of our community.

The focus is now on working out how we can help Selwyn emerge from this crisis economically strong,

socially connected, environmentally well positioned and culturally enriched. This is not going to be an

easy or quick process, Mr Ward says.

Firstly, the Council needs to understand the pandemic’s impact in each of these areas to try to work out

what the future might hold and help us measure our progress. To find this information we decided to

talk to the grass roots of our community.

“We recently called together a group of more than 80 leaders, influencers and community representatives

in a series of meetings. There was an abundance of valuable feedback. We are now taking stock of what

was said and combining it with other information and advice. Last week we also concluded the public

consultation for our draft annual plan and are busy evaluating the community’s thoughts on our proposals.

All this information will help us co-ordinate the best possible recovery for Selwyn.

“We don’t have a silver bullet or a huge slush fund, but what we do

have is a growing database of understanding that our experienced

Council team will use as a handrail as we navigate the uncertain

waters of the future. We cannot do this alone and we recognise the

part many other organisations, charities, community groups and

volunteers have to play in recovery.

“Some recovery action has already started, such as our buy local

campaign and our digital signposting of businesses to support

schemes. I look forward to sharing more of our recovery initiative

and plans as they emerge.”

New COVID-19 updates

app launched

A new app will help Selwyn residents keep up with the latest

pandemic information and details on Council services and facilities.

The Council has launched the Selwyn Updates app to help

residents with easy access to the latest information and to stay up

to date with future changes and initiatives. The app can be found at

covid-19.selwyn.govt.nz.

Council Group Manager Communication and Customers Stephen

Hill says during the pandemic there has been a constant stream of

changes to how Council services are operating during the different

alert levels. “We’ve worked hard to keep people informed about

what’s open and what’s changed – through our website, social

media and local news outlets,” he says.

“Along with most other organisations we’ve had to adapt the way

we work – including developing new online services and changes to

the way we interact with customers.

“This new app will be another

useful tool to help people

keep up with these changes

and the best ways to access

our services and find out what

facilities are open, or what

support is available.”

The app can be download to

any smartphone or device by

visiting the site and clicking

Please note we will be observing

Work on the final stages of the Leeston to Doyleston cycleway is under way and progressing well.

The Council was able to complete the necessary land purchases and site access agreements for the

final route over the Alert Level 4 lockdown period. It has also agreed a contract with Leeston based

Johnston Excavating and Drainage to continue working on the cycleway.

The company had recently completed stage one of the cycleway, building sections at either end from

Leeston township to the Leeston Heritage Park and installing a bridge and starting the cycleway at the

Doyleston end.

The agreements happening over the lockdown period meant that Johnston’s was able to start work as

soon as possible under Level 3 conditions, Council Transportation Asset Manager Andrew Mazey says.

“We also appreciate the cooperation of the adjoining landowners to help us get the works underway as

soon as possible at this challenging time.”

Key drainage work has been completed, which will reduce delays from bad weather, he says. Despite

the lockdown period the Council and Johnston’s are working hard to finish the cycleway as close as

possible to the original goal of having it completed before winter, Andrew says.

The Council was pleased that it was able to confirm the work with a Selwyn based contractor, providing

a local business and its employees with certainty of work in spite of the impacts of the pandemic.

Although the cycleway has been planned for a long time, the construction came at a good timing to

support the increased focus on getting active as well, he says.

“With the emphasis on people walking and cycling and getting out more this will add better value in that

regard and support people to continue that into the future.”

Playground maintenance

Safety maintenance is being carried out on some playgrounds in Rolleston and Lincoln between now

and the end of June, replacing the softfall. This is necessary to keep the playgrounds up to safety

standards and requires each playground to be closed while the softfall is removed and replaced. Most

sites will take around five days to complete. The playgrounds are:

Rolleston – Othello Drive, Hamlet Reserve, Parakura Reserve and Goulds Green. Lincoln – McGrath

Drive, Poulter Road, Pentire Parade and Southfield Drive.

Directory launches job

search support

The job search in Selwyn just got easier with the Council adding

a free option for businesses to advertise vacancies in the Selwyn

Business Directory.

The Council has added a Selwyn Vacancies page where businesses

can advertise their vacancies. The page at selwyn.govt.nz/directory

also allows people on the job hunt to search for Selwyn businesses

with vacancies and search for jobs in their preferred field.

The job vacancy page is part of the Council’s ongoing efforts to

support Selwyn businesses and the community, especially following

the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The directory has also been upgraded to allow businesses to advise

customers about their online sales platform and let people know if

they are able to deliver.

Businesses can update their pages now by logging in or registering

for the directory at selwyn.govt.nz/directory.

Selwyn Open –

One of country’s biggest

mechanics back in full ignition

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 Lisa and Nigel Fleck from Selwyn Auto and

Jones Road Auto.

During lockdown, many cars sat in garages collecting dust. Now

as we all head back on the roads, it’s time to make sure they are

running and road safe.

Selwyn Auto and Jones Road Auto have put their foot back on the

gas. After servicing essential worker cars during Alert Level 4, along

with appointment only WOFs in Level 3 their usual ‘WOF while you

wait’ at Jones Road Auto has resumed, but people must wait in

their cars until they reach the front of the queue.

Car lovers Nigel and Lisa Fleck started Jones Road Auto’s engine

in 2012, with Selwyn Auto opening four years later for Lincoln and

Springston customers.

Their business has grown rapidly, from two to 15 local staff

members, providing over a thousand WOFs to Selwyn customers

a month. The business was recently recognised by Auto Super

Shoppes as one of New Zealand’s biggest automotive stores.

“It’s nice to be nationally recognised, especially when we are like a

little old mum and dad business from Rolleston. We never expected

it, it just kind of organically happened and I think it’s definitely

because of our local community.”

Lisa is thrilled to see her customers returning and grateful to them for

consciously choosing to shop local. Being a part of the community is

something Lisa admires most about working in Selwyn.

“On a personal level for Nigel and I, it’s the satisfaction of being a

part of a community and we are really proud to be a part of it.”

The store gets involved with the Selwyn Motor Fest and provides

sponsorships to local schools, sports clubs and community groups,

including Rolleston Rugby Club and Waikirikiri Hockey.

“We try and give back as much as we can, those are the people

who support us so it’s really nice to support them back.”

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. Due to the Lowes Road

and Tennyson Street intersection upgrade, Lowes Road is one way on both sides

of the intersection, with lanes open for traffic heading away from the intersection,

but not towards it. A stop/go system and speed restrictions are also in place on

Journey to raise funds for Cure Kids

• By Bea Gooding

ROLLESTON resident Josh

Thompson and his friends will

be embarking on a two-day,

1000km journey later this year

raising at least $1000 towards

children’s mental health.

Avis Budget Cure Kids 1000

tasks teams with sourcing and

decorating cars valued under

$1000, travel on a pre-planned

route in Canterbury and

complete challenges along the

way this September.

Last year at least 10 teams

collectively raised $32,000,

with all funds distributed

to Cure Kid’s research for

children and adolescent mental

health.

Mr Thompson teamed up

with friends Sam and Rachael

Butterworth, of Christchurch,

for the initiative driving a

1984 Volkswagen Golf which

resembles a German police

car.

“I was helping out last year

and found it quite fun. I didn’t

take part but this year we’ve

actually made the plan to get

involved and get the car done

up,” Mr Thompson.

“I’m a massive European

car fan, especially Volkswagen.

I’ve always wanted one and

it happened to work out, we

got one from Dunedin within

budget and did something

different as there’s not many

around in this colour.”

Mr Thompson said the event

was likely to turn a few heads

while teams were out and about,

which was a chance to raise

awareness for “a really good

charity.”

This year’s route was yet to

Football boss keen to get players on the field

• By Jacob Page

SELWYN UNITED director of

football Chris Brown is hopeful

of getting football back on the

pitch some time in June.

Many of the club’s senior

players trained in small groups

for the first time last week in the

hope the season will begin next

month.

“We’ll get the guys training

with the right social distancing

requirements and just get them

using a ball again and getting

some kilometres through the

legs.

“Playing football in your back

garden gets boring after a while

so it’ll be great to have them

Chris Brown

back.”

He said the ultimate decision

on playing matches will come

from New Zealand Football and

then Mainland Football.

“It’s all just a waiting game,”

Brown said.

“The actual planning has been

put on hold from our end until

we get some firm information

but we are hopeful of starting in

June for the (Mainland Premier)

league but that’s all dependent

on how level two goes.’’

He said the players have had

training sessions designed for

them over the period of level 4

and level 3.

“We sent the players an eightweek

workout plan but we also

tried to keep in contact with

everyone, we had a quiz night

over Zoom, we just tried to get

creative with it.”

Brown said he had fluctuating

emotions around the lack of

sport over the past two months.

“There have been moments

where I had wished we could just

get back out on to a pitch and get

that social aspect back of being

in a team sport,” he said.

“But equally, I have family in

England and things haven’t been

going so well over there plus you

factor in the fact people’s businesses

are struggling so it’s best

we do our bit and stay home.

“As a director of football,

there’s no one you can turn to

and ask what to do in this situation,

you just try to do what

you think is right and adapt as

needed.”

Brown said a potentially shortened

Mainland Premier League

season won’t change how he uses

his players

“We will follow the club

model of continuing to push

youth players and I can’t see us

changing the way we do things

just because there may be less

games on the schedule,” he said.

Cup virtual car racing title.

The penultimate round has

Ransley in second and in need

of podium finishes.

The 18-year-old was taken

out at turn three of both races

at Silverstone last week but

recovered to earn enough points

to maintain second overall with

two rounds remaining.

“It means the last two rounds

will have to be perfect.

“We qualified in fourth

and we felt we had the speed

to push for a top spot so to get

taken out in both races was

frustrating.

“I’d put a lot of time in during

the past week to prepare for the

race but these things happen,”

Ransley said.

He said the standard of the

greatly over the past eight

weeks.

“At the beginning it was a

bit of fun and a laugh, especially

the first night but that has

changed,” he said.

“The credibility of the series

has really taken off and people

are putting in a lot of preparation

time before races so the

standard is improving and it’s

been a battle at times.”

He said it will be his first

time racing on the Italian track

tomorrow night but he knew

“It’s another new track for me

so it’ll be fun and hopefully the

results go our way.”

Darfield rider has sights on

world champs in Austria

• By Jacob Page

DARFIELD cross-country

mountain biker Ethan Rose is still

expected to make an impact on

the international stage this year.

The 17-year-old, year 12

Darfield High School student,

has set his sights on the rescheduled

world mountain bike

championships which are set to

be in Austria in from October 5

to 11.

“That’s the focus at the moment

and I’m hoping to get

some racing in so I can get more

(ranking points) so I can get a

better starting position,” he said.

Ethan won the Oceania under-19

title and then the National

age-group title in Dunedin in

January and then added the North

Island under-19 title in Palmerston

North the following month.

He was set to compete in California

in March and then race in

Australia on the way home but

that schedule was dashed due to

the coronavirus pandemic.

“I had some really strong

results at the start of the year

and was looking forward to

testing myself in America but

everything got cancelled and it’s

become pretty bad over there so

I’m not sure when I’ll get to go

back,” he said.

PEDAL READY: National

and Oceania under-19 cross

country mountain bike

champion Ethan Rose has his

sights set on Austria.

Ethan is part of the National

Mountain Bike Hub aimed at

promoting talented under-19

and under-23 riders through

training camps and national and

international race opportunities.

“There’s been a few training

sessions through Zoom which

has kept us all connected so,

hopefully, we’ll be able to race

soon.”

He said his main focus was his

school work and NCEA studies

because he knows later in the

year he may have to represent

New Zealand again on the

international stage.

Tasty Bites

Quick and easy fried rice

• By Ian Knott

Quick, easy and versatile,

fried rice can be used

as a side dish or main

meal. This tasty version is

loaded with vegetables

and can be transformed

into something even

greater by adding your

favourite protein

The best fried rice

4-6 servings

Ingredients

3 tbsp butter, divided

2 eggs, whisked

2 medium carrots, peeled and

diced

1 small white onion, diced

½ cup frozen peas

3 cloves garlic, minced

salt and black pepper

4 cups cooked and chilled rice

3 green onions, thinly sliced

3-4 tbsp soy sauce, or more to

taste

2 tsp oyster sauce (optional)

½ tsp toasted sesame oil

Directions

Heat ½ tbsp of butter in a large

sauté pan over medium-high

heat until melted. Add egg, and

cook until scrambled, stirring

occasionally. Remove egg, and

transfer to a separate plate.

Add an additional 1 tbsp of

butter to the pan and heat until

melted. Add carrots, onion, peas,

garlic, and season with a generous

pinch of salt and pepper. Sauté

for about 5min or until the onion

and carrots are soft. Increase heat

to high, add in the remaining

½ tbsp of butter, and stir until

melted. Immediately add the

rice, green onions, soy sauce and

oyster sauce (if using), and stir

until combined. Continue stirring

for an additional 3min to fry the

rice. Then add in the eggs and stir

to combine. Remove from heat,

and stir in the sesame oil until

combined. Taste and season with

extra soy sauce, if needed.

Serve immediately, or

refrigerate in a sealed container

for up to 3 days.

Top tips

It’s important to use cold,

cooked rice. So plan ahead and

have some prepared. Warm rice

doesn’t tend to fry well when it

hits the hot pan and becomes

soggy, sticky clumps.

If you haven’t planned ahead,

just cook up a fresh batch of rice,

spread it out as thinly as possible

on a backing tray and put it in the

fridge for 30min (or freezer for

10-15min).

Use a high heat. This will help

brown the rice and vegetables,

and prevent the rice from

steaming in the pan. Don’t leave it

sitting too long though. Nobody

wants burnt fried rice.

Feel like a

game of golf?

Gardening

For spring flavour get some herbs growing

IT’S NOT TOO early to be

thinking about your spring

garden, especially your herb

garden, but be wary of frosts.

There’s really no comparison

between the flavour of fresh and

dried herbs. And though most

supermarkets now sell the fresh

plants, it’s often cheaper and more

convenient to grow your own.

It’s a good idea to plant herbs

close to the kitchen — the further

away they are, the less likely you

are to pick them, especially in

rainy weather.

Most of the cooking herbs like

a warm place in the sun, though

mint will grow in a damp shady

spot. If you don’t have much

space, stick to those herbs you

know you’ll use in cooking.

Consider growing them in pots,

or plant herbs in the flower garden

— most are quite decorative.

Fresh coriander is an important

ingredient in many Thai

and Indian dishes and now’s the

time for planting the seeds of this

annual herb.

Coriander plants are taprooted

and don’t transplant well,

so sow seeds where you want the

plants to grow and thin out when

necessary.

The seeds are slow to germinate,

so don’t give up on them too soon.

Plants bought ready-grown from

the garden centre tend to quickly

run to seed.

Don’t try substituting ground

coriander seeds for the fresh leaves

as the flavours are quite different.

Some varieties of chives die

down in the winter, while others

stay green the whole year through.

If rust is a problem, cut the

clumps back and wait for fresh

rust-free growth. If that doesn’t

work, it may be best to plant some

new bulbs in a different spot.

Clumps need to be divided and

replanted every few years in any

case or the chives get overcrowded

and loose their vigour.

Garlic chives have a stronger

flavour than regular chives and the

flowers are white and starry rather

than pom-pom shaped. The plants

grow more slowly and the leaves

stand up to cooking a bit better.

Garlic chives are popular in

Asian dishes — try adding them

to stir-fries at the last minute for

an authentic flavour, or add them

to spring roll fillings and omelettes.

Parsley comes in two forms– the

curly-leaved variety and flat or

broad-leaved parsley, often known

as Italian parsley.

The latter is currently more

trendy but at a pinch you can

usually substitute one for the

other.

INGREDIENTS:

Try planting

coriander in pots,

once settled it

doesn’t like being

transplanted.

Parsley (below)

is a suitable

companion plant.

and provided daily comfort when PM

Jacinda Ardern addressed the public.

During these weeks, pets have been there

for us through the ups and downs of the

pandemic.

Preparing pets for life after

lockdown

As we head back to work, it’s not

surprising that our pets (especially dogs)

might now show signs of insecurity,

separation anxiety or even depression

from loneliness. Dogs, in particular,

develop close relationships through time

spent with their owners; therefore, sudden

separation creates a challenge – how to

help the dog cope without the attention of

its owner and get back into some kind of

pre-lockdown routine.

5 tips to help your pet survive

their day without you

1. Keep to a schedule of feeding,

exercise, toileting, rest and one-to-one

time – Animals like routine, any major

changes to their routine can cause

stress. Reduce this by sticking to their

usual pre-lockdown routine if possible.

2. Give them some alone time – Allow

pets to have some time without your

attention. Let them spend time outside,

in another room, or in their run without

you or other members of the family.

3. Help them settle at home alone – Leave

out treats, keep the radio on and use

plug in synthetic pheromones to help

keep pets calm while you are at work.

4. Engage help – If you are concerned

about your pet being left at home

while you head back to work full time,

consider asking a family member, friend

or neighbour to call in and check your

pet. They may be able to spend some

time with your pet to help break up the

monotony of a long working day.

5. Seek professional advice – if your

pet needs additional help for stressful

behaviour, contact your local vet,

animal trainer or behaviourist.

your pet cope while you head back to

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Vehicle care post lockdown

Motor vehicles need to be driven so issues

are likely to arise when they sit idle. With

vehicles shut in their garages during the

Coronavirus lockdown and with winter on

the horizon, it is worth giving your vehicle

a check over and even booking it in for a

service.

Below are some pointers for prepping

your motor vehicle:

• If you have had trouble starting your

vehicle, a new battery might be needed.

It may be at the end of its life if it is

five years or older. To ascertain if you do

need a new one, pop into one of Selwyn’s

automotive centres and ask them to test

the battery.

• The anti-freeze coolant fluid in your

radiator will likely need replacing if two

to three years has passed or the vehicle

has travelled around 50,000 kilometres,

since the coolant was last replaced.

Coolant helps prevent the water in the

Help keep our roads safer

vehicle’s cooling system from freezing

and the radiator and engine from

corroding. If a top-up is all that is

needed, be sure to use the correct type

of coolant for your vehicle and fill to the

correct level.

• Assess the stopping power of your

brakes and also ensure the tyres have

sufficient pressure and tread to grip the

road, rather than slide on slippery

surfaces or when the brakes are applied.

• Check the headlights, tail lights

and indicator. Replace any weak or

non-functioning bulbs and make any

adjustments where needed.

• Examine the condition of the wiper

blades, replacing these if they do not

provide good visibility.

• Top up the windscreen washer container

so you can keep your windows clean for

clear visibility.

• Test the air conditioning system and

heating function so your vehicle is a

comfortable temperature when driving

and the windscreen can be effectively

demisted on foggy or frosty mornings.

• Check when the Warrant of Fitness or

Certificate of Fitness and your Driver’s

Licence are due for renewal. NZTA has

granted extensions for those which have

expired since the beginning of 2020.

Taking care and affording others on the

our roads safer this winter.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Many options in GLC

Mercedes-Benz range

MERCEDES-Benz has

a huge range of sport

utility vehicles. That is

no surprise, the market

is demanding cars that

cater for many roles –

family transport as well as

practicality.

The most popular SUV

in the luxury car maker’s

range is the GLC and, not

surprisingly, it is available

in a series which accounts

for eight variants. There

is a petrol-electric hybrid

model, a plug-in EV, and

those with the choice of

four, six or eight-cylinder

engines; there’s even a twowheel-drive

model.

However, most incorporate

the 4Matic system

which sends drive to each

corner.

It must also be noted that

the GLC is a series which

incorporates coupe-type

models as well as the traditional

SUV.

The entire GLC range has

just had a bit of a refresh,

there’s been a styling

change, and buyers now

have the choice of varying

suspension types, depending

on how the vehicle will

be used, and the surfaces

it is likely to travel on, on a

daily basis.

The range spans prices

from $87,600 to $187,400.

The vehicle this evaluation

focuses on is GLC 300,

a mid-range SUV which

lists at $102,500 in standard

form.

The 300 effectively replaces

the 250 from a year

or two back. Put simply,

the four-cylinder turbocharged

petrol engine has

had a power and torque

increase, up from 155kW

and 350Nm to 190kW and

370Nm.

The increase doesn’t affect

the silent and smooth

operation of the 2-litre, four

cylinder unit. It is a highperforming

engine but it

does everything without

making a fuss, it searches

the rev band well but works

fluidly through the midrange,

maximum torque

arrives at 1800rpm and

spreads to 4000rpm, and

with peak power arriving

at just 5800rpm there is no

drop-off in performance.

A lot of that is also garnered

through the seamless

flow of gearing courtesy

of a nine-speed automatic

transmission.

This engine is a powerhouse

through the whole

acceleration process, it

will cut out a standstill to

100km/h time of 6.1sec,

and will make 120km/h

from 80km/h in 3.8sec.

Steering wheel-mounted

paddle shifters will assist

the driver if he/she decides

to take control over the acceleration

process.

MERCEDES-BENZ GLC 300: Boost in power for 2020.

It wouldn’t be a worldclass

engine unless you

get the benefits of thrifty

fuel usage, and that is certainly

the case in the 300.

It is rated by Mercedes-

Benz with an 8.1-litre per

100km combined cycle

average.

These figures are all quite

remarkable for a vehicle

which weighs in a little

tubby at 1804kg, but the

point is that the engineering

which is coming out of

European factories at the

moment is at the forefront

of technology, and the

GLC is just one example of

performance and economy

all rolled into one.

• Price – Mercedes-

Benz GLC 300,

$102,500

• Dimensions –

Length, 4656mm;

width, 1890mm;

height, 1639mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1991cc, 190kW,

370Nm, nine-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.1sec

• Fuel usage –

8.1l/100km

Time was a little against

me on the day I went testing

and I didn’t venture

as far as I would normally

travel in an evaluation car.

However, on the roads west

heading home through

Burnham and Lincoln I got

a thorough understanding

of the GLC’s behaviour on

the seal, and I enjoyed its

nimble and agile nature

given that it is a mid-size

SUV.

Riding on huge 20in Pirelli

rubber, there is positive

steering feel and unyielding

grip, while the suspension

settings are a mixture of

what is required to keep

gravitational movement

contained in a corner, along

with the ability to absorb

the ruts and bumps which

make up as fair hunk of

Canterbury’s roads.

As you would expect

from Mercedes-Benz, the

GLC is full of luxury appointments,

it has the kit

to make you feel you have

bought a lot of car, and it

is intensely comfortable to

ride in, even for five occupants.

One of the standout

features is the voice recognition

operating system

which takes command over

many of the in-cabin functions.

By opening with “hey

Mercedes’’ you can instruct

the vehicle to do many of

the adjustments you would

normally do by hand. This

could well be seen as a

safety device allowing the

driver’s hands to remain on

the steering wheel and to

keep concentration on the

road ahead.

Safety has been at the

forefront of Mercedes-

Benz’s manufacturing

operation for as long as

I can remember, and the

company’s entire range has

a high ingredient of builtin-safety

features. The GLC

is brimming with all the

electronic functions which

are not far from offering

autonomous operation.

Some of them I could do

without, but the automotive

world is demanding vehicles

intervene on their own

accord if collisions seem

imminent and Mercedes-

Benz has answered that

call.

The GLC is just another

example of what make

Mercedes-Benz so desirable

as a manufacturer. The

company has recognised

that buyers want plenty

of choice and the GLC

coupe and SUV options are

extensive.

Personally, I’d be opting

for the 63 S, just the

thought of that thundering

V8 under the bonnet is

enough to make my heart

race.
