PREBBLETON’S new

supermarket is proving popular

in the community.

FreshChoice Prebbleton

opened the doors of its new

store to the public last Tuesday

morning and celebrated with

speeches from guests including

Mayor Sam Broughton and a

ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Judith McDonald of Prebbleton

said: “Oh it’s lovely. It’s a

really great supermarket. It is

definitely where I will be shopping

from now on.”

Deputy Mayor and Springs

Ward councillor Malcolm Lyall

said he thinks the development

is fantastic for the community.

“I think it’s a great thing to be

able to walk to the shop and not

have to drive. The store looks

fantastic. The meat selection is

very good and I must say I am

very impressed with the craft

beer selection.”

The store is owned by

Prebbleton residents Grant and

Kathy Hatton.

Broughton

takes

10 per cent

pay cut for

six months

• By Devon Bolger

MAYOR SAM Broughton will

take a 10 per cent pay cut because

of the Covid-19 pandemic.

It will be effective for the first

six months of the

coming financial

year.

It will see his

salary reduced

from $136,500 to

$129,675.

Sam

Broughton

The cut was

determined

independently by

the Remuneration

Authority following

a law change in May that

allowed the authority to reduce

mayoral salaries for up to six

months.

Springston township

committee chairman Rupert

Tipples said: “I commend the

mayor for leading by example.

Times will only get harder,

especially as wage subsidies end,

and we all should be making

sacrifices,” he said.

Mr Broughton said he had no

issue taking a pay cut.

Date set for

Hororata Highland Games

ANOTHER MAJOR event

in the district will go ahead

as normality starts to return

following Covid-19.

The Hororata Highland

Games will take place on November

7.

Hororata Community

Trust executive officer Cindy

Driscoll said

organising

one of the

first major

events to be

confirmed

for the region

has not been

easy.

Cindy Driscoll

“Planning

an event with

constantly changing Covid-19

levels and guidelines is a challenge

but our community has

never backed away from a challenge.

“A decade ago, we designed

the Hororata Highland Games

to help our community recover

following the Canterbury

earthquakes. Now 10 years on,

the games will once again be a

shining light as we overcome the

trials of Covid-19.”

The announcement follows

the confirmation of other major

events for the district.

Selwyn Sounds will return to

the Lincoln Domain on March

6 next year and the Selwyn

Spring Show will take place on

October 17 at the Ellesmere

Showgrounds.

Ms Driscoll said the support

of their suppliers and sponsors is

what gave them the confidence

to move ahead with the games.

“There is a real feeling from

every aspect of ‘we will do what

it takes’ to make the games a

success.”

The Hororata Highland

Games attracts 10,000 people

each year with about 500

competitors in Scottish events

including the caber tossing,

highland dancing and pipe band

competitions.

A team of 220 volunteers

comes together to make the

event happen.

Ms Driscoll says this will

be an important festival not just

for Hororata but all of Canterbury.

“Our community loves

welcoming people from all over

New Zealand to the Hororata

Highland Games and we

can’t wait to celebrate its 10th

birthday.”

In Brief

ANNUAL PLAN ADOPTED

District councillors have unanimously

agreed to sign off on the

2020/21 Annual Plan, giving the

go-ahead for $156 million in projects.

The district council adopted

the plan with no changes to the

draft at a meeting last Wednesday.

Major projects planned for the

coming financial year include

the $14.8 million Selwyn Health

Hub and Springs/Marshs Rds and

Shands/Blakes Rds intersection

upgrades.

NEW DARFIELD DOG PARK

Darfield will soon be the home

of a new dog park. The offleash

exercise area will open at

McHughs Forest Park later this

month. The park will include a

fenced area at the southern end

of the forest. A district council

spokesman said the dog park or

off-leash exercise area received

strong support during a public

consultation day about future

developments at the park.

CRAFT AND CHAT GROUP

In the community events section

last week, it read a craft and chat

group would meet at the Lincoln

Library on Monday. This was

incorrect, the group runs every

Thursday from 10am to noon.

Quarry appeal lodged

• By Devon Bolger

AN APPEAL has been lodged

against the decision to approve a

quarry near Weedons.

The appeal will be heard by

the Environment Court.

Weedons Residents Association

chairman

Stephen Bain

has lodged the

appeal on his

own behalf,

not the association’s.

“It feels

Stephen Bain

good to have

it officially

filed because I think this needs

to go to the courts. Right now it

has cost me $600 personally to

lodge it.

“I don’t have a handle on

what the exact cost will be yet.

That will be determined over

time.”

Mr Bain said a lot of people

offered to contribute financially

to the cause.

“I think what I will do is probably

get a third party or another

person of standing in the community

who could start up

and manage a givealittle page

for me.

“I’ll get somebody who is

prepared to manage that at arm’s

length. Basically, we will make it

funds are coming in and what is

going out.”

Templeton Residents’ Association

chairwoman Jolene Eager

said the group spent all of the

$40,000 raised during the initial

hearing process.

They were unable to financially

support Mr Bain’s appeal.

Fulton Hogan was given

permission to develop a 170ha

site between Dawsons, Jones,

Maddisons and Curraghs Rds.

A trio of commissioners has

previously dismissed objections

the quarry could be detrimental

to the health and livelihoods of

nearby residents and businesses.

The quarry could open in

2022. If it does, it could produce

more than half a million tonnes

of gravel a year over the next 40

years.

Proposed mine expansion

subject of meeting

• By Devon Bolger

RESIDENTS WILL gather in

Glentunnel tomorrow to discuss

their opposition to a proposed

expansion of a nearby coal mine.

Bathurst Coal Ltd has applied

to expand its opencast coal mine,

known as Canterbury Coal

Mine, at Bush Gully Rd, near

Coalgate, by 18ha.

Siana Fitzjohn lives near

Darfield and has organised the

meeting. She said the idea is to

discuss the mine and its impacts.

“The meeting agenda will

probably be flexible depending

on who shows up and what they

wish to discuss.”

An Environment Canterbury

spokeswoman said they are

not yet able to confirm exact

numbers of submissions they

have received on the expansion

proposal but it is about 646.

The majority of the submissions

are opposing the expansion.

The spokeswoman said the

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.

increase the opencast coal mine

Psychiatrist doubles as comedian

• By Devon Bolger

BY DAY Joanna Prendergast

helps people struggling with

mental health but at night her

personality transforms on stage

to bring joy to people through

laughter.

The Prebbleton resident decided

to try her hand at comedy

at the age of 48. Three years later

and she is debuting her solo

show to raise money for women’s

refuge.

Ms Prendergast works as a

psychiatrist but says she tried

comedy after a push from a

comedy producer.

“I have been a performer since

I was a child but decided to go to

medical school rather than drama

school. A comedy producer

suggested I try stand-up comedy

when I was acting in a TV show

pilot a few years ago.

“I like a challenge so I gave it

a go and haven’t stopped since.

It’s an amazing feeling to have

a room of people having a great

time and laughing at your jokes.”

Since starting comedy, Ms

Prendergast has had a lot of

success.

She placed third in the South

Island Raw Comedy Quest in

2018 and has also twice been

comedy roast battle champion

and won three awards at the

2019 Christchurch Comedy

carnival.

Ms Prendergast has two teenage

children and has lived in

Prebbleton for 16 years.

She said she loves the country

lifestyle so close to the city.

She was disappointed the New

Zealand International Comedy

Festival show was cancelled this

year but found a silver lining by

spending the lockdown finishing

writing her debut solo show The

Cool Mum.

The show will be held at Little

Andromeda Theatre in Oxford

Tce on Friday. It is a parody of

a celebrity parenting seminar

DIVERSE:

Prebbleton’s Joanna

Prendergast is

Women’s Refuge

after launching her

comedy career at 48.

focusing on her own parenting

experiences.

She said her on-stage persona

Jo Ghastly developed from how

she imagines her children view

her, as embarrassing, clueless

and thinking she is cool.

“My teenagers both perform

in some video clip skits in

the show, along with some

of their friends. My kids and

other young people seem to

particularly enjoy my comedy as

it’s very relatable to them. If my

16-year-old son smirks at a joke,

I know I’ve hit solid gold.”

As a psychiatrist, Ms Prendergast

says she takes professional

boundaries very seriously.

“Especially around respecting

mental health. For this reason,

I perform comedy as a persona

and avoid mental health content

in my comedy.

“Most of the content is lighthearted

jokes but there are some

truthful, take-home messages

about parenting and life in the

show.”

Women’s Refuge will receive

25 per cent of the ticket sales for

Ms Pendergast’s show.

“As a psychiatrist, I work with

many women who have been in

abusive situations and have been

supported by Women’s Refuge.

“Supporting women to get

away from abuse and to protect

their children from abuse is

one of the most important ways

we can reduce developmental

trauma and long-term mental

health challenges.”

There will also be a donation

bucket for Women’s Refuge set

up after the show.

As well at the show on Friday,

Ms Prendergast is also planning

a second show on September 11,

as well as on July 13 in Wanaka

and July 15 in Queenstown.

•Tickets cost $20 – $5

for students and those

not working. They can

130 new pest

traps for

national park

RATS AND stoats are on

borrowed time as the Arthur’s

Pass Wildlife Trust prepares to set

more than 130 new traps.

The traps were donated by

power company Orion.

Native birdlife is being threatened

by predators which have

increased in large numbers over

autumn due to a mega mast.

Arthur’s Pass Wildlife Trust

chairman Peter Neale said the

traps are vital to stem rampant

predator population growth that

is threatening native birds such as

kiwi, kea and rock wren.

“When the predator’s food

source dries up they turn to native

birds and lizards. Our native species

are not well adapted to these

predators and have poor defence

against them,’’ Mr Neale said.

The traps are being laid in the

Mt Aicken, Bealey, Mingha and

Edwards River valley areas of

Arthur’s Pass National Park, and

will be cleared and reset by trust

members and volunteers.

The new traps will boost trap

numbers in the area by 15 per cent.

During spring the new traps

are expected to catch more than

100 predators a month, and

significantly slow their growth in

numbers.

Southern ChiropraCtiC

3 kennedys bush rd, halswell (upstairs)

Three important reasons

for seeking Southern

Chiropractic care –

and how it can help

Our spines are delicate yet important

central structures designed to

support the human body and

allow for physical movement and

functionality.

By ensuring better spinal alignment

through care at Halswell’s Southern

Chiropractic you can better protect

against potential back injury and

increase the capacity of your body to

heal itself naturally. There are many

benefits to regular chiropractic care

that will improve your overall general

health and wellbeing both now, and in

the future.

The three main benefits are:

Pain and stress relief: When your

spine is not working freely and your

vertebrae may be misaligned it is

likely that your body will not feel 100

per cent. Some may experience a

mild or dull ache, others tightness

in muscles and perhaps a strong

sharper pain. For most individuals,

this can also cause mental stress

as your attention is drawn to the

symptoms experienced. Treatment

by Southern Chiropractic will help

balance your body and provide

much-needed stress relief, whilst

restoring you back to your better,

more active self.

Better posture: Over time, and

largely as a result of sedentary

lifestyles, our spines can be exposed

to added physical pressure. Taking

a little time to engage in regular

exercise and chiropractic care can

do wonders to help align abnormal

curving or tilting in your spine and

improve your overall body posture.

Improved motion: As chiropractic

care can lessen tension in your spine

and allow the nerves to communicate

without interference, you could

benefit from an improved sense of

motion and increase in energy. When

your body no longer has to fight

against constant aches and pains,

it will better support movement and

physical activity.

Southern Chiropractic care consists

of initial orthopaedic assessment

to determine areas of dysfunction

within the spine (neck and back)

followed by treatment designed to

facilitate the restoration of normal

function to that area. Methods used

include a combination of soft tissue

treatment (massage), low level laser

therapy and spinal manipulation or

mobilisation.

Importance of healthy lifestyles

Alongside chiropractic treatment, an

active and healthy lifestyle will help

to maintain your back health and

decrease the likelihood of excess

weight, strain and resulting injury.

Take up our

Amazing Midwinter

New Patient Special.

First patient visit $60 for full

assessment and treatment.

Valid for online bookings only, from 1st July to 14th July

Adopting a balanced diet that is

nutrient and vitamin-rich will also

contribute to a wholesome lifestyle.

Regular exercise, whether walking,

swimming, yoga or any other sport

for that matter, will be beneficial for

your body, spine and mind.

So, if this sounds like you take the

time to see Andre at Southern

Chiropractic.

Appointments can be booked

online through their website,

www.southernchiropractic.co.nz,

or phone Andre on 03 322 1432.

Southern Chiropractic is located

at 3 Kennedys Bush Road with car

parking outside the door.

INSPIRATIONAL: The students behind the business Neat (from left to right) – Tike Schenkel,

Noah Korach, Brady Yelavich, Sam Garters, Delmari Janse van Rensburg and Emily Walker.

Shoe cleaning product earns awards

• By Devon Bolger

‘A PRODUCT designed by

Lincoln High School students

has won a top regional award.

Sam Garters, Emily Walker,

Delmari Janse van Rensburg,

Tike Schenkel, Noah Korach

and Brayden Yelavich were

named as regional winners and

national runner-up in the first

challenge of the Young Enterprise

Scheme.

Their business, Neat, developed

an eco-friendly white shoe

cleaning kit.

The challenge centered around

market validation focusing on

bringing the product to the

market.

Said Neat chief executive Sam

Garters: “We were incredibly

proud and excited to win these

awards.

“The lockdown was a huge

hurdle in completing our market

validation, so, to not only

overcome this but to win first

place regionally and second place

nationally was amazing.”

Sam said the young enterprise

programme consists of five challenges

throughout the year.

“We are currently working on

the final touches for our pitch to

the young enterprise judges, and

will then be starting the promotion

challenge on July 31.”

He said the idea for their

product came about because they

wanted something that would

save time and help the environment.

“As a group of young individuals,

we know how easily white

shoes get dirty and we’re used

to not having the time to clean

them frequently enough.

“So, we have developed an

eco-friendly white shoe cleaning

kit that makes it quick and easy

to keep your shoes clean without

the high carbon footprint of the

few alternative products on the

market.”

Although originally thought

to have made it here on its own

Driver ‘excited’ by first harness race win

• By Josh Smith

IT MAY have been a wet winter’s

day at Addington Raceway on

Sunday, but it will live long in the

memory of Jo Buckland-Stevens.

and was able

to pick-up

Buckland-Stevens bided her

time at the rear of the field for

the majority of the race before

electing to press her claims fourwide

down the back-straight.

Glacier Coaster stuck on

resolutely and was able to

pick-up her rivals in the homestraight

to record a half-length

victory over Changearound, with

a further 1-1/2 lengths back to

Flame Lady in third.

The win was made even more

satisfying for Buckland-Stevens

given the mare is owned by the

estate of Mike Stratford, who

died earlier this month.

“It was pretty exciting to get

my first win,” Buckland-Stevens

said.

“I was just trying to be really

positive today. I knew she was a

lovely horse to drive. I just tried

to listen to the instructions and

go out there and have fun.

“She is just such a nice horse to

drive and she is such an honest

mare. I was ecstatic to drive her

for Mike, especially on a special

day with his memorial.

“It was also great to get the win

for Bruce and Colleen (Negus)

and what they have done for me

over the past few years.”

Bruce Negus was instrumental

involvement in harness racing,

having introduced her to the

sport three years ago, and he

has encouraged her to pursue an

amateur driver’s licence.

“We own a garage out at

Burnham (Challenge) and

Bruce is one of our customers,”

Buckland-Stevens said.

“He came in about three years

ago and Brendan (husband) and

a few of the other mechanics

went into shares in one of his

horses.

“I thought I would go and

check the horse out and I ended

up helping brush all the horses

and learnt how to gear up.

“One day Bruce said: ‘Did I

want to jump in the bike and it

all started from there. As soon

Glacier Coaster has become

one of Buckland-Stevens’

favourite horses at Negus’ stable,

alongside She’s Allthe Craze

who finished runner-up later on

the card behind the Colin and

Julie DeFilippi-trained Midnight

Assassin.

“Glacier Coaster is just an

honest mare to drive, I like

her, and She’s Allthe Craze,”

Buckland-Stevens said.

“It’s a shame we don’t get

to drive them because I like

the trotters and she is just an

amazing horse to drive.”

Buckland-Stevens is enjoying

her time out on the track on

raceday and said the only goal

she has at this stage is to improve

on her driving abilities.

“I am just trying to drive

horses to their capability

and listen to the trainer,” she

said.

“Next season I would like to

get as many drives as I can and

just continue to improve my

driving skills.”

Wine

A wealth of fine pinot noirs

• By Mark Henderson

KIWIS ARE blessed with easy

access to a wealth of great pinot

noir, much of it from Otago.

It can be easy to overlook the

raft of pinot noirs that

are produced north of these parts.

Marlborough and North

Canterbury have double the

area of Central Otago devoted

to pinot noir grapes and,

while a swag of that goes into

bubbles production, the volume

remaining often means that

pricing is very fair, as seen in

today’s selection.

2019 Hunter’s Offshoot

Marlborough

Price: $24.99

Rating: Excellent

Attractive nose with red fruits,

raspberry dusty gravel, earthiness,

a liquorice-like hint, wild

herbs later. Juicy, bright fruit,

crunchiness and grainy tannins,

leading to a long, silky juniper

and wild herb-accented finish.

Lovely depth of ripe fruit and,

while youthful, there is already

good integration and balance.

Vibrant and very drinkable at a

smart price.

www.hunters.co.nz

2018 Main Divide

Price: $24.99

Rating: Very good

Graphite and charry oak lead

the nose; rich fruit here too yet a

little bound up. Lead pencil, rubber,

rich fruit meet up with powerful

tannins and racy acidity:

this feels like a lot of effort and

ingredient have gone into making

it, yet it still seems to need

time to fully integrate. Time sees

this soften and flesh out.

www.maindivide.com

2019 Jules Taylor

Marlborough

Price: $32.99

Rating: Excellent

Vibrant nose, richly fruited

with raspberry and wild herbs,

yet freshness and lift too. Red

and dark fruits frame the powerful

palate, spices, a little tamarillo

with time. Develops an appealing

sappiness and vibrancy,

which adds coolness to the long,

richly fruited close. Youthful, but

already nicely integrated with

superb drinkability, and potential

too.

www.julestaylor.com

2018 Opawa

Marlborough

Price: $28

Rating: Very good

Subtle but floral with red fruits

and tilled earth, spices with

time. There’s a little wildness

to the palate, raspberry joining

the mix along with cranberry, a

stalky nuance and chewy, grainy

tannins. A lightness and aerial

quality to this zestiness to the

palate with red fruits hanging on

the close.

www.opawawine.com

2019 Main Divide

Te Hau Reserve

North Canterbury

Price: $32.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Raspberry, dark and liqueur

fruits, oak scents and a brownpaper

nuance. With its youthful

boldness, this a real impact pinot

noir driven by powerful raspberry,

loganberry and spice before

flowing to an intriguing yet

beguiling bittersweet note on the

finish. A powerful style that will

suit fans of bigger reds; drinking

really well.

www.maindivide.com

2017 Mills Reef

Reserve

Marlborough

Price: $24.95

Rating: Very good

Fragrance and florality,

rose petal, strawberry and

wild herb, a little funkiness

with aeration. A lighter-bodied

palate showing earth/humus,

mixed berryfruits and a tangy

quality. Aeration brings the first

hints of secondary characters

on that rich, earthy backdrop. A

svelte style in the slot to enjoy

now.

Annual Plan signals

long-term investment

The Council has adopted an Annual Plan that balances investment for recovery and the future,

with savings.

The Council adopted the plan at its meeting last week, committing to a capital programme of

$156 million, while also making savings of $1.7 million, adopting one of the smaller rates increases

of any council in Canterbury.

The Council halved its expected average rates increase to an average increase of 1.6% across the

district. The range of increases for individual properties is expected to vary between 1.4% for urban

residential properties (around $1 a week) and 3.2% for some larger rural properties.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the plan is an investment in the COVID-19 recovery and longer term

future, while recognising the economic impact of the pandemic on ratepayers.

Selwyn is a growing district and remains a great place to live and work. However, we recognise

that many households have been impacted by the pandemic. This plan aims to be compassionate

and realistic about people’s circumstances, making savings where we can, while continuing to

invest with infrastructure, facilities and projects that will provide jobs, boost economic activity and

improve the wellbeing of Selwyn in the long term.”

Some projects including the Prebbleton Community Centre were deferred, the Chief Executive

and Mayor have both taken pay cuts, and salaries and staff numbers have been capped at current

levels, with the exception of staff required to operate the new buildings.

The Council has also put in place a rates assistance package to help people affected by

COVID-19, including an extended rates payment period and reduced penalty fees.

Major projects include:

Te Ara Ātea and the Rolleston town centre

($14 million)*

Foster Park indoor courts($14 million)

Selwyn Aquatic Centre extension

($9 million)

Selwyn Health Hub ($13 million)

Council keeps top credit rating

Infrastructure projects include:

Springs/Marshs Road and Shands/Blakes

Road intersection upgrades ($10 million)

District-wide water quality improvements

($5 million)

Upgrades to the Eastern Selwyn

Sewerage Scheme ($14 million)

*Budgets are for the 2020/21 financial year

The Council has retained its top credit rating, with international ratings agency Fitch confirming the

Council’s financial outlook is stable.

The AA+ rating is the same as both the New Zealand sovereign rating and the Local Government

Funding Agency for local currency and equal to the highest rating given to any council in New Zealand.

The rating means the Council is at very low risk of defaulting on its loans and reflects the Council’s sound

financial position and prudent financial forecasts, including prudent levels of borrowing and spending.

The assessment was made during the period of the Level 4 lockdown and considered the potential

impacts of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Fitch found Selwyn’s diverse economy, with its limited reliance on international tourism, left it wellplaced

to withstand the impacts of the pandemic.

Mayor Sam Broughton says, retaining the AA+ rating was a good sign for the Council and the district

as a whole.

“To keep our AA+ rating with a strong backing from the ratings agency on our financial outlook is great news

for Selwyn. It’s a positive reflection of the sound financial decisions that our Council continues to make.”

Selwyn Open – A snowy escape

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 Porters Alpine Resort general manager

Darren Cavill.

Anticipation and excitement is in the chilly winter air as the team at

Porters’ ski field work to get ready for the upcoming ski season.

Darren Cavill says he knows customers will be feeling eager too.

“They can’t wait, I’m imagining them all with their skis packed on

the top of the car and the warm clothes hanging up, just ready to

go, ready for us to blow the whistle.”

The ski field has an average 25,000 visitors each winter. It recently

joined with Porters Lodge, rebranding as a resort aiming to be

the perfect getaway destination – a small village with hot pools,

accommodation, restaurants and mountain biking.

Just over an hour from Christchurch, Darren says people like

Porters for its ‘learn to ski’ focus and family friendly approach.

“There is a huge loyalty at Porters. I think that is a big reason people

come. People have been coming to Porters for many years.”

Darren, who recently moved back to Christchurch from Selwyn

describes the district as his little escape.

“It’s always a pleasure to drive out of Christchurch and arrive in

Selwyn, I’m extremely lucky that I get to do that every day.”

Updates for the opening of Porters’ ski field will be posted on their

Facebook Page. They hope to be open on Friday 3 July in time for

school holidays.

See the district in a new way

with KidsFest

KidsFest starts next week, offering people the chance to get a

whole new view of the district.

The Eye Spy Selwyn quiz encourages young people to explore

the district by setting challenges to visit different Selwyn sites and

answer the quiz questions.

It gives a great opportunity for adults too to find new reasons to love

Selwyn by exploring some of our many businesses and attractions.

Families can also go in the draw to win a view of the district from

above thanks to Ballooning Canterbury.

Ballooning Canterbury is offering Eye Spy Selwyn quizzers the

chance to win a family hot air balloon ride for four if they answer a

question and collect a stamp at each Council facility. Completed

cards of stamps that are returned to the customer centre at the

Council‘s Rolleston offices will go into the draw.

Tickets and a full timetable of events will be available from Friday 5

July at selwyn.govt.nz/kidsfest.

On the roads

Tennyson Street is closed from 43 Tennyson Street to Markham Way

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 Tennyson Street.

Trents Road is closed heading south east away from Springs Road

while upgrades are made to the sewer system.

Leeston Road and Brookside Irwell Road intersection is being

upgraded. The intersection is closed to traffic exiting Brookside

Irwell Road and a stop/go system is in place for traffic turning from

Leeston Road into Brookside Irwell Road.

Surface repairs are being done on Harpers Road and Point Road,

traffic management is in place.

Farhad Dastgheib was working at Shiraz University in Iran when he was accepted to complete his PhD

in Agronomy at Lincoln University.

“I did a little bit of research and found that this place they call New Zealand is so far away, but it has

good potential, so I thought well, I’ll give it a try.”

Soon after, the Islamic revolution changed his beloved country dramatically. Arriving in New Zealand in

1987 he faced the challenge of leaving his daughter and wife in Iran, while the country was at war with

neighbours Iraq. Communication was tricky too.

“Every now and then I could make a telephone call and then that was it,” says Farhad.

Two years later his family was able to join him.

“That was probably the happiest day of my New Zealand life. My daughter was just turning five-yearsold

when they came over and I remember a couple of days after their arrival, I managed to organise a

nice birthday party for her and she was thrilled.”

They welcomed a second daughter, and Farhad lectured at Lincoln

University and set up his own agricultural research consultancy.

People were friendly and interested in his culture and through the

Lincoln Rotary Club he was able to give back, he says.

The family celebrate Nowruz, the Iranian New Year in March,

gathering around a table of food set in a traditional way,

remembering each year gone by. It is important to pass on this

tradition to his daughters and their families so they can have a

feeling of belonging to a place, Farhad says.

Farhad did not initially plan on staying in New Zealand for 32 years,

but he is glad he did and feels this is home.

“Coming from another country where there are different sorts of

problems, it’s not easy but I had made a choice to live in a place

where I can raise family in a peaceful and friendly environment. I

found New Zealand to be a very good example of that.”

Reduced shutdown for Selwyn Aquatic Centre

The Selwyn Aquatic Centre will close for a day for work as part of the aquatic centre expansion.

The centre will close on Monday 13 July as the power needs to be turned off to complete work. The

centre was initially scheduled to be closed for six weeks during the expansion and upgrade works.

However work was able to be completed during Level 3, reducing the shutdown needed to one day.

The expansion will see a new 10-lane, 25-metre pool built, more than doubling the centre’s capacity and

accommodating increasing demand from aquafitness, casual swimming, deep water and other activities.

The structure of the new pool has been completed

with work now starting on the building surrounding it.

The new pool is due to open in March 2021 and

work to upgrade the changing rooms, staff and

public areas and existing leisure pool is due to be

completed by November 2021.

The first walls have also started going up at the

Selwyn Health Hub and work is continuing on Te

Ara Ātea, the Rolleston Town Centre, and the Foster

Park indoor courts.

Gardening

Don’t let frost get to

your pruned roses

THERE IS more written about

pruning roses than almost any

other aspect of their care.

Yet, why do we prune our

roses?

Here are a few key reasons:

Encourage new growth and

more blooms. Maintain the

health of the rose by removing

old wood, improve air circulation

within the bush.

Maintain a specific shape,

especially for climbing and pillar

roses, and those that are

pegged down.

Not all roses have the same

need to be pruned, some just

need an annual “going over’’

after flowering to remove the

dead wood. Other roses, most

notably the highly bred hybrid

teas and floribundas, need regular

pruning. If you garden on

a light, sandy soil then prune

your roses only lightly as they

will not be able to support the

vigorous new growth that hard

pruning encourages.

The time to tackle pruning

is in the winter while they are

dormant, before they burst into

growth. In some areas of New

Zealand, and in some seasons,

CIRCULATION: Removing old wood improves air circulation

and encourages new growth.

PHOTO: GETTY

there may seem to be almost

no period of dormancy and

so you must choose your

moment carefully. So do not

prune when there is still a risk

of severe frost, as any new

growth will be frosted and

die back.

You will have to cut back to

the next bud, reducing the plant

further.

Most bush roses flower on the

current year’s growth.

A hard prune will produce

more vigorous new growth.

Remove the oldest cane on the

plant; this keeps the bush fresh

and vigorous.

Then reduce thick, strong

stems by about half their height.

Thin canes need to be cut back

to one-third their height.

Try to keep the centre of the

plant open. A mess of spindly,

twiggy growth in the middle

of the plant restricts light and

air circulation, encouraging

disease.

If you like picking

your own

fruit – try feijoas

FEIJOAS ARE an excellent plant

in the home garden.

They make a great fruiting

hedge, attract birds to the garden

and are easy to grow with the

added bonus of delicious fruit.

Feijoas are an attractive evergreen

plant ranging from a shrub

to a small tree, which will grow

between 2-4m in height.

They are easily trimmed and

maintained and have a green leaf,

which is grey underneath. Feijoas

have pohutukawa-like flowers in

December and fruit mainly from

April to June.

Feijoas generally prefer a warm

place in the garden and young

plants need protection. The soil

needs to be well drained and rich

in organic matter.

The plants shouldn’t be allowed

to dry out in the summer months

as this will hamper fruit production.

Feijoas are heavy feeders. Feed

them with sheep pellets and a

high-nitrogen general garden fertiliser

in late winter. Also apply a

slow-release fertiliser throughout

the growing season.

TASTY: Feijoas prefer a warm

spot in the garden.

PHOTO: GETTY

The self-fertile varieties need

only one plant to fruit. Non

self-fertile varieties need other

varieties planted near them, so

it pays to plant three or more for

heavy crops.

They will fruit on their own but

the crop is minimal. Feijoas fruit

on new season’s wood, so prune

for shape without removing all

new wood off the plant.

Feijoas can be made into many

interesting shapes with pruning.

You can train them as a small

tree with a single trunk and then

branch from there, and they

make great hedge plants.

Feijoas are a must for anyone

who enjoys picking their own fruit.

With the shortest day passed,

now is a great time to plant garlic.

Garlic is a crop that is easy to grow, and has many health benefits as well as adding

fantastic flavour to our food. All you need is a pot or container, some top-quality

growing mix and a sunny spot somewhere around the house.

• When choosing which cloves to plant, make sure you choose the larger ones

• Split the garlic heads into individual cloves

• Make a hole about 5cm deep, and 10cm apart

• Once the shoots have popped up, add a layer of mulch to protect the bulbs

Dairy women’s

support group

Dairy Women’s Network is a kiwi notfor-profit

organisation, built on their

famous can-do attitude. The network’s

focus is to create occasions for women to

get off-farm and connect with others.

The network develops, facilitates and

promotes events and initiatives for

members to acquire industry-based

knowledge and soft skills. Their webinars,

workshops and events have been

developed by women in the industry to

suit busy lifestyles, so they understand

their member’s situation as a farmer or

professional, a wife and a mother. While

the group is a Women’s Network, one

of its core values is inclusivity, and they

welcome men too!

Events are run all around the country

and the nationwide network of members

is supported by volunteer regional leaders

in 35 different regional groups, who

coordinate activities and events in each

region. Workshop topics range from

on-farm skills such as herd reproduction,

calf rearing, shed hygiene and mastitis

management to personal development

such as creating a positive culture on the

farm and human resources. The Dairy

Women’s Network also covers businessfocused

topics, such as payroll and farm

accommodation. They make sure that all

their workshops are delivered in a fun and

interactive style, and a supportive learning

environment is created.

Dairy Women’s Network tries to record

sessions as webinars so they can build

up year-round content for members. The

conference is usually held once a year in

different locations around the country and

has recently moved the 2020 conference

online. The conference gives dairy

women a chance to learn, connect and

inspire each other, and is also where the

recipients of two awards are announced:

Fonterra Dairy Woman of the Year and

Regional Leader of the Year.

The Dairy Women’s Network enjoys

collectively celebrating and supporting

its members and everything they do.

Government provides funding

boost for catchment improvements

The Ministry for Primary Industries

(MPI) is providing an extra $3 million

to the New Zealand Landcare Trust

to improve New Zealand’s waterways

and promote sustainable management

practices.

The funding from the Productive and

Sustainable Land Use Programme will

help the NZ Landcare Trust to employ up

to seven new staff, to provide vital services

across the country to clean up waterways

and promote more sustainable practices.

“This new funding will increase the

Trust’s national coverage and enable

them to employ a new team of regional

coordinators to work with the farming

community to integrate sustainable land

and water management practices into

their farming systems,” says MPI’s Deputy

Director-General Agricultural and

Investment Services, Karen Adair.

The new funding continues the

Government’s support to farmers and

others to help them make environmental

and freshwater improvements.

“The assistance from the government

to support both economically and

environmentally sustainable farming

practices is very encouraging and a

strong endorsement of our work with

the primary sector,” said the Trust’s Chief

Executive, Dr Nick Edgar.

“This is a critical time for farmers to

up their game and have a lasting positive

impact on our freshwater ecosystems.

The funding will effectively double the

Trust’s on-ground network of regional

coordinators supporting farmers across

New Zealand,’’ Dr Edgar said.

Ms Adair said New Zealand’s food and

fibre products were in demand globally

because of their high quality and our

strong farming and growing credentials.

“Producing and exporting high-value

products will be vital to New Zealand’s

recovery from COVID. By putting more

resources into helping our farmers and

growers to integrate more sustainable

practices, we can clean up our waterways,

and also create jobs and boost our

agriculture export and tourism offerings,”

she said.

The New Zealand Landcare Trust is

an independent charitable organisation

that focuses on effective catchment

management to improve land and water

quality. They currently support around 75

catchment groups nationwide.

Engine options for trendy Suzuki Baleno

I’VE ONLY been to India once,

but once was enough to gauge the

organisational skills that country

needs to manage such a huge

population.

It’s that prowess that has

filtered down to automotive

manufacturing, Jaguar and

Land-Rover are operated under

Indian ownership and the Suzuki

Motor Corporation is one of

several manufacturers that has

seen the value in manufacturing

cars using Indian labour and

technology.

One model that comes off the

Manesar manufacturing plant is

Baleno, a mid-size hatchback that

has been sold in New Zealand in

its latest iteration since 2017.

The Baleno lands here in

two variations, effectively

there are two engine options,

there’s a four-cylinder 1.4-litre

naturally-aspirated engine and

a turbocharged 1-litre threecylinder

unit. Both variants

– GLX and RS – have just had a

mid-cycle makeover.

The changes are only minor

and mostly cosmetic, there’s a

new grille and front bumper, new

seat upholstery and minor trim

changes. Suzuki also claims ride

comfort enhancements and lower

noise levels.

The evaluation car was the RS

variant, it also gets new wheels

and LED headlamps. The RS is

priced at $25,490 which makes

wallet-friendly buying, but if you

really want a Baleno and that was

just a touch out of reach, the GLX

variant sits at $20,750 ($21,990

auto).

For my money I’d be an RS

buyer, not only are the power

outputs higher – 82kW and

160Nm against 68kW and

130Nm – but I’ve got a penchant

for three-cylinder engines. I

once had a Star Media pool car

for personal use and it was an

Alto, the car that essentially

started Suzuki’s three-pot engine

programme.

However, today’s engine is a

far different proposition, it’s a lot

smoother than ever before, and

the harmonics which characterise

the layout are all but engineered

out of the vehicle.

One of the reasons I like the

configuration is the hearty

torque structure, and if you add

in turbocharged boost there is

FUNCTIONAL: Under the Baleno’s liftback lies a healthy load

space.

SUZUKI BALENO RS: Honest, turbocharged three-cylinder engine.

decisive throttle response from

all points in the rev band. A lot

of that is to do with the area at

which torque is delivered, all

of the way from 1500rpm to

4000rpm, and it stops not that

far distant from the point of peak

power at 5000rpm.

All those figures considered,

there is a feisty feel underfoot,

and with the Baleno weighing

in light at just one tonne,

the power-to-weight ratio is

substantial.

It’s enough to propel the Baleno

to 100km/h in 10.5sec, and it

will scamper through a highway

overtake (80-120km/h) in 6sec.

Drive is channelled to the

front wheels through a six-speed

automatic transmission, and it

is a beauty with quick, smooth

shifts. For those who like to

be involved in the gearchange

process, steering wheel-mounted

paddle shifters provide a little bit

more of that sporty feel.

While the Baleno RS

excites with its under-bonnet

performance, it is still the fuel

miser you would expect from

Suzuki. It claims a 5.2-litre per

100km (53mpg) combined

cycle average. During my time

with the test car the fuel usage

readout constantly listed around

• Price – Suzuki Baleno RS,

$25,490

• Dimensions – Length,

3995mm; width, 1745mm;

height, 1470mm

• Configuration – Threecylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

998cc, 82kW,

160Nm, six-speed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10.5sec

• Fuel usage – 5.2l/100km

6l/100km (47mpg), while an

instantaneous figure of 4l/100km

(70mpg) is achievable on a

highway cruise with the engine

turning over at just 1950rpm at

100km/h.

At all speeds the Baleno is

comfortable and feels controlled.

Steerage is informative while

body balance in a corner is

controlled. The suspension is

relatively simplistic, but it does

contain the ruts and bumps well

and equips itself when loaded if

a corner is presented a bit on the

quick side.

There’s been a lot of talk lately

about vehicle safety, and I’m

pleased to report that the Baleno

has a five-star Australasian New

Car Assessment Program rating.

My wife always asks me how

many air bags does any particular

car have, and in the Baleno’s case

there are six.

The Baleno also gets a high

level of kit for convenience.

There’s satellite navigation,

cruise control and speed limiter,

keyless entry and ignition. Many

of the control systems can be

navigated through a central

screen display, it also functions as

rear view camera and will allow

smart phone capability through

Apple Car Play and Android

Auto.

That’s a lot of kit for a $25k car,

and with the changes Suzuki has

made through the facelift makes

it even more appealing.

The Baleno is just one car in

a raft of fuel-friendly, affordable

cars from the brand. Suzuki has a

high-profile here in Canterbury

with the cost-free motoring

programme offered through the

Christchurch dealership.

Many Selwyn Times readers

will be Suzuki owners, and for

those thinking of trading up,

choosing between the two Baleno

models may be a difficult choice,

but either would be a rewarding

experience once behind the

wheel.

From family cars to work trucks and

supercars to fixer-uppers.

Clause 5 of the First Schedule, Resource Management Act 1991

Plan change 61 (PC61) proposes to change the Selwyn District Plan to rezone

approximately 30 hectares located east of Darfield from Rural Outer Plains to a mix of

Business 2 (17ha) and Living 1 (7ha) zone.

The change seeks to insert a development plan and associated rules into the District Plan.

If approved it would result in additional industrial development and up to 35 residential sites

at an average density of 1,950m2.

PC61 proposes amendments to the Selwyn District Plan that include:

· amending the District Planning Maps to rezone the subject land from Rural Outer Plains to

a mix of Business 2 and Living 1

· incorporating an outline development plan to coordinate and guide the future development

of the site.

The plan change request and the assessment of why it is needed can be read at Council’s

Rolleston Headquarters and can be viewed online at service centres and public libraries in

Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and Rolleston or at www.selwyn.govt.nz.

oppose any of the initial submissions. A Council hearing will then be arranged to consider

all submissions, after which the Council will decide whether to reject or approve the plan

change. Any submitter who is not satisfied with the Council’s decision may then appeal to

the Environment Court.

Hi. It’s Grant and Kathy here, the owners of FreshChoice Prebbleton. We just wanted to introduce ourselves, and welcome you to

our store.

Basically, we live locally and we think we’ve got a pretty good idea about what people in our community need in a supermarket. As a

result, you’ll find a wide range of everyday essentials, and those little treats that make life that wee bit more enjoyable!

Having said that, if there’s something you need that we don’t currently stock, please let us know – there’s every chance we’ll be able to

get it in for you.

Being locals also means we know our region’s leading farmers and growers. And that, in turn, helps ensure we always have the best cuts

of meat and the freshest seasonal produce available.

If you need any assistance as you wander around our store, please don’t hesitate to ask one of our friendly team – they’re always

happy to help! We are the FreshChoice.

Grant & Kathy Hatton

0wners, FreshChoice Prebbleton

COMMUNITY FUND

We’re proud to support the local community that our store serves, that’s

why we’ll make regular charitable grants as part of the FreshChoice

Community Fund.

If you are a community group such as a club, school or trust, or an

individual with a community project underway and just need a hand,

you could be chosen as our local monthly recipient. Each month, we’ll

donate at least $500 and throughout the year there are Double Up

Months, where we’ll donate $1,000. Find out more at www.freshchoice.

AGED MEAT & GOURMET BUTCHERY

We will be offering a range of dry cured meat, gourmet cuts & small goods as well as fish fresh from the market daily.

There will also be a Himalayan pink salt chamber creating exceptional mouth-watering dry-aged cuts. Talk to our in-store

butchers to add your very own meat cut to the chamber, and then each time you visit, take

a slice from your aged-delicacy.

PS spots will fill up fast, so get your name on the list.

WING RIB ROAST GIVEAWAY

To celebrate the opening of our Himalayan pink salt Aged Meat chamber, we’re

giving away a Wing Rib Roast to the first 12 people who buy a Whole Sirloin On

The Bone and age it in our chamber. You can age the Wing Rib or the Sirloin for

up to 180 days and visit at any stage to get a slice- our butchers will cut to your

request. There’s just 12 to giveaway, with each Wing Rib Roast valued at $60.

What to ask a real estate agent

Selling a home is a big life decision, both

financially and emotionally. The journey

can be a roller coaster, which is why

finding a licensed real estate agent you feel

comfortable with is so important.

“Remember, you’re looking for the

person who you’re going to trust to sell

what’s likely to be your biggest asset. Their

success (or failure) will have a marked

impact on your new life plan,” says Kevin

Lampen-Smith, chief executive of the Real

Estate Authority (REA).

New Zealand has about 15,000 real estate

agents who help people navigate big-deal

transactions every day.

“The trick is to find the one that will be

best for your situation,” he says.

“If you’re going to get the best out of

your real estate agent – and they’re going

to get the best price and

conditions for your property

– then you need to put the

work in before you sign with

anyone. That means basing

your decision on more

than gut feel or the fact that

their office was easy to park

outside,” he says.

You need someone who

understands what it takes to

sell a property like yours

and a proven track

record to show for it.

You also need to feel

comfortable with

them personally

– if you don’t

find them pleasant to deal with then buyers

may not enjoy the experience either.

If you’re not sure how to get the ball

rolling, ask the agent the following

questions:

- What do you know about my

neighbourhood? How are sales in this area

and who is buying?

- Do you work independently or with

other agents?

- What kind of advertising or marketing

do you use – and which ones will work for

my property? What extra marketing costs

will I have to pay?

- What are your commission rates? Are

you open to negotiation?

- Do you have testimonials or references

from people whose properties you have

sold in the last three months?

- What do you recommend I do to

prepare my home for sale?

- Why should I hire you?

Asking these questions helps you

form a picture of the agent’s experience,

knowledge and how they structure their

business.

“These days you’d expect an agent’s

marketing plan to have an online focus

that includes major property websites and

social media. Find out what the marketing

plan will cost and ask them to explain their

rationale – you’re the one paying for this

service, after all,” Lampen-Smith explains.

Remember that you can negotiate on the

marketing costs and commission – don’t be

afraid to ask the agents if they are interested

in an incentive-based commission, where

they will earn more commission if they sell

your property above a certain price.

Once you’ve found the agent you think

you’d like to work with, check them out

on the Real Estate Authority’s (REA)

online public register, which will tell you

if the agent holds a current licence. This is

important because it’s illegal to carry out

real estate agency work without a licence

and if you deal with an unlicensed person

the REA will be unable to help you if things

go wrong.

When you’ve decided on an agent, the

terms and conditions of your contract will

be set out in an agency agreement that

you both sign. This is a legal document,

so make sure you get advice from a lawyer

and that you understand your rights and

responsibilities.

Light, bright and striking

Perfect in a rural or urban setting, Benchmark

Homes’ Milns Park showhome oozes appeal.

The home is orientated to capture sun throughout

the day, due to generous windows which reach right

up to the raked ceiling.

“Most Kiwis love the sun and this home has been

built to maximise that,” explains Benchmark Homes’

Operations Manager, Sam Evans.

Designed for modern family living, the 226sqm four

bedroom home is equally suitable for couples wanting

a little more space.

A large Cedar hardwood deck ties in seamlessly

with the striking Cedar slats at the entryway. This

deck is also accessed via two triple panelled, double

sliders in the living area.

The home has a family living area and separate

retreat room. The décor and colours in the latter,

embody a restful, relaxing mood.

Split strip windows in the kitchen, bring in the

morning sun, making a warm inviting room in which

to breakfast. In warmer weather, one might also dine

alfresco on a rear deck, accessed through a third slider

from this living zone.

A perfect family and cook’s kitchen, the TriStone

bench top (made by Trends Kitchens in Christchurch)

is complemented by black satin-finish cabinetry and

textured planks. Kitchen appliances include: a 900mm

Smeg gas cooktop and double oven, and dishwasher.

There is also space for a double refrigerator.

The master bedroom has a slider out to its own deck

with garden beyond; a spacious walk-in robe; and

an ensuite with a difference. A walk-through shower

leads to a standalone bath, providing one really

beautiful and luxurious wet area. There is also a larger

than usual 1500wide vanity augmented with dark

tiles. Under-tile heating add the finishing touch.

A main bathroom and separate toilet service the

other three bedrooms.

The home has a simple monopitch roofline, with

Integra lightweight concrete panel façade and James

Hardie Stria Weatherboard panel cladding, giving it

contemporary appeal. Its architectural design can be

adapted to a smaller or larger home.

“You can take off a bedroom or living room to easily

reduce the home’s size to say 190sqm, or make it

larger by moving a wall out,” advises Sam.

Sam says viewer response to the showhome has

been very positive. Many viewers love both the design

and interior décor, from the colours through to

features like the linen shade curtains. No wonder the

team at Benchmark love this home and spending time

there with clients.

Benchmark Homes’ Milns Park showhome can

be found at 12 Whitburn Avenue, in Halswell. It is

open Mondays to Fridays from 9am until 5pm, and

on Saturdays and Sundays form 12noon until 4pm.
