Carter - a great club man

• By Barry Clarke

DAN CARTER was the

consummate professional

as usual on Saturday as the

‘big names draw the big

crowds’ adage proved accurate

yet again.

Hundreds turned out for his

well-publicised return to rugby

at Southbridge, as he builds to

a Super Rugby comeback with

Canterbury rugby’s historical

arch rival, Auckland, or in the

2020 sense – the Blues.

But that seemed of no importance

as the fans swooped for a

glimpse of Carter, a selfie, pat

on the back or a handshake –

FOR SOMEONE who has all

of the trappings in life that

fame and fortune brings,

Dan Carter’s feet are firmly

on the ground.

Carter has proven time

and time again he is still a

country boy at heart, and all

round good guy.

On Saturday it was no

different when he returned

home for a blowout with

Southbridge in a bid to get

match-fit for the Super

Rugby campaign that lies

ahead, albeit with the

Blues.

I suppose we can forgive

him for that.

There was a huge crowd,

selfies were taken, and there

were pats on the back and

handshakes. The photo on

our front page today will no

doubt be a Verevodi family

treasure.

Those memories are

priceless.

the district have made claims for

Issac Construction has made a

claim of $678,243 to the district

Covid-19 lockdown had on the

infrastructure, roading and car

parking aspect of the Rolleston

Town Centre project.

Claims have also been submitted

by Apollo Projects as the

contractor of the Foster Park

Indoor Courts for $49,148.

A claim from Downer has

been made for the Lowes Rd

and Tennyson St intersection

upgrade project and is under

negotiation. A $23,732 claim

has been made for work on the

Health Hub by Naylor Love.

Said district council group

manager property Douglas

Marshall: “We expect the costs

will be covered by each project’s

contingency fund, but we will

not be able to confirm these

costs and the final breakdown of

payment until closer to project

completion.”

Issac Construction chief

executive officer Jeremy Dixon,

who is also the chairman of

Civil Contractors NZ’s Canterbury

branch, said: “We have

made a claim in line with our

contract conditions in regards to

not being able to work through

“It now sits with the district

council to review our claim,

consider a response and then

negotiate to get to an end game.”

Big attendance at mine meeting

• By Devon Bolger

A COMMUNITY meeting

to discuss the controversial

application to expand a mine in

the Malvern Hills drew in a big

crowd on Thursday.

Siana Fitzjohn said about 60

people were in attendance at the

meeting in Glentunnel last week.

The idea behind it was to

discuss Bathurst

Coal

Ltd’s proposal

to expand its

opencast coal

mine, known

as Canterbury

Coal Mine, at

Siana Fitzjohn Bush Gully Rd,

by 18ha.

“I honestly didn’t know what

to expect. I think it went very

well. There were lots of different

points raised and it was great to

all be in one room to discuss the

different facets of the issue.

“It was a very constructive

discussion. Overall the vibe that

was created was quite a good

one,” she said.

Malvern Hills resident Brian

Thomspon who opposed the

expansion in his submission also

attended the meeting.

“I feel the meeting was a good

open discussion and was handled

well,” he said.

One of the main points of

discussion at the meeting was

the retrospective element of the

consents.

Said Ms Fitzjohn: “There is

some uncertainty around what

is consented and what isn’t and

I think that really highlights

the problem of this process. We

don’t actually know clearly how

much [coal] has been taken out

without consent.”

Bathurst Coal Ltd is seeking

retrospective land use consent

for earthworks that already exist

as well as in the future at the site.

A district council’s report

on the decision for public

notification reads: “In 2017, the

applicant [Bathurst Coal Ltd]

was formally advised that resource

consent was required for

increased truck movements.

“The resulting application for

increased heavy vehicle movements

was lodged in 2018. During

that process, it became evident

that the increase in heavy

vehicle movements was directly

related to the increase in the volume

of coal being extracted, and

that the increased mine production

was not consented.”

After much discussion,

Bathurst Coal Ltd agreed to

prepare an application for the

expansion of the mine, it says in

the report.

Ms Fitzjohn says she hopes to

continue the discussion with the

community going forward.

The application has proven

controversial with 547 public

submissions opposing the expansion.

Bathurst Coal Ltd did not

respond to questions from the

THE PLANNED shut down of

the Selwyn Aquatic Centre for

upgrade works has been reduced

from six weeks to a day.

The facility will close on July 13

as the power needs to be turned

off to complete the work.

It 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 facility’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 next year and work to

upgrade the changing rooms,

staff and public areas and existing

leisure pool is due to be completed

by November next year.

Dan the man once again for Southbridge

• From page 1

Carter filled his usual No

10 position as the club which

nurtured him swept away West

Melton 54-14 in the top of the

table Coleman Shield clash.

Though declaring himself a

bit rusty, he was sharper than he

thought, the 38-year-old having

a hand in two tries and playing

the full 80min. He also kicked six

conversions.

But any thoughts West Melton

might be a little gun shy of the

112-test All Black were put to rest

when hooker Jack Walsh nailed

him with a good old fashioned

body-and-all cruncher.

Carter got himself up off the

ground and rejoined the fray.

Water of a duck’s back. Just good

hard, country rugby.

“If anyone saw that game today,

I’d say myself that I’m a bit rusty,”

he told reporters after the match.

“It’s good to make the first step

in to potentially playing again.

I’m not sure if I could play at Super

Rugby level just yet. You leave

those kinds of decisions up to the

coaches.”

Carter will join the Blues later

in the week for the Super Rugby

Aotearoa top of the table clash

with the Blues at Orangetheory

Stadium on Saturday.

“Whether I play or not, I’m

not too worried. I’ll leave that

decision to (coach) Leon (Mac-

Donald) and the selectors up at

the Blues.”

A three-times World Player of

the Year and World Cup winner

in 2011 and 2015, Carter spent his

entire professional career in New

Zealand playing for the Crusaders.

He joined the Blues after stints

in France and Japan, but has not

played since February after Japan’s

Top League was shut down

due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Saturday was also notable for

other milestones.

Carter was made an honorary

life member at his last appearance

for Southbridge in 2014,

and after Saturday’s match he

was presented with his blazer by

his father Neville Carter. He also

turned out for the first time since

a schoolboy with his cousin Will

Carter.

And on another high note,

former Tongan international

Isileli Fine, played his 100th game

for Southbridge. The big lock was

Heart of Rolleston takes shape

Rolleston’s new library

and community centre,

Te Ara Atea, is expected

to be the heart of the

township’s new centre.

Devon Bolger reports

A RANGE OF spaces and

activities will be accommodated

for in the building on Tennyson

St which will include a modern

library, meeting rooms,

performance spaces, workshops

and digital resources.

It will also have social spaces,

a community lounge area, as

well as arts, culture and heritage

displays and research facilities.

One of the key features in the

facility will be the museum-like

experience which will be used

throughout the facility to share

the story of the district and its

people, place and culture.

This will be done through engaging

objects and multi-media

interpretive displays.

Said a district council spokesman:

“The building will provide

a much-needed space for this

community to come together,

to learn, access knowledge, art

and cultural heritage resources,

build literacy, share stories and

develop their identity and sense

of connection, local pride.

“The facility will include

contemporary resources in a

modern environment that will

extend the programming and

activation provision for the

Rolleston Town Centre.”

The name of the community

centre and library, Te Ara Atea,

was gifted by Te Taumutu

Rūnanga and references an unobstructed

pathway to the world

of knowledge.

The facility will open onto

a spacious town square which

will provide areas for civic and

community gatherings, markets,

events, performances and informal

community interaction.

“The area has been designed

so that people can move freely

between the indoor environment

of Te Ara Ātea and the

outdoor spaces that encourage

community gathering, activities,

recreation and reflection.”

Armitage Williams is the

chosen contractor for the facility

which is expected to cost $420.7

million.

Construction on the facility

began in December last year and

is expected to be complete in

August next year.

The former Rolleston library

and community centre will be

repurposed into a centre for the

arts.

The idea was mooted at a district

council meeting in March.

It would encompass purposebuilt

spaces for the arts and

spaces which are fully designed

to meet the needs of arts activities.

Consultation on the future

use, capital investment requirements

and operating cost

implications of the Rolleston

Community Centre building

will be held in the 2021-31 Long

Police

meet with

builders

• By Devon Bolger

POLICE BELIEVE the message

has sunk in for construction

companies wanting to avoid

burglaries at their building sites.

A police meeting held on June

30, was attended by about 30

representatives of local building

companies.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said: “We have gotten some feedback

that the companies have been

speaking with their tradesman and

letting them know all of the safety

measures they can use. I think the

message has sunk in for them.”

He said the main message from

police is they want the building

companies to report any theft

and to be more preventative

themselves to cut down

opportunities for burglars.

“Things like ensuring properties

are secure, builders gear and

appliances are kept out of sight

and identifiable where possible in

case they are stolen.”

Burglaries at building sites have

increased since the lifting of the

lockdown.

Toilets, baths and vanity units

that are ready to be installed are

the main items being taken.

The couple were together

23 years and married for

10. Mr Hanson was 67.

The 69-year-old of Ladbrooks

is using her heartbreak

for good, cutting

out alcohol for Dry July

to raise money for other

New Zealanders like her

husband, who require support

during their cancer

treatments.

She had cancer herself

15 years ago and this is

the second time she has

participated in Dry July.

Said Ms Underwood:

“This year, I’m doing it

because my husband succumbed

to prostate cancer.

He was only diagnosed

two-and-a-half-years ago

and just had a particularly

aggressive one and he tried

really hard with all sorts of

alternatives as well as the

standard treatments, but

he lost his battle on May

15.”

She has raised about

$1100 so far.

“The response has been

very humbling and, of

course, I shed a tear every

time someone donates, really,”

she said.

Ms Underwood said Mr

Hanson would be very

proud of her fundraising

efforts.

“He’d be particularly

proud because once he

was diagnosed he really

put an awful lot of effort

into trying to stay here and

he also supported others,

you know, who were going

through their various journeys

with cancer, whether

it was support people, or

whether it was people with

cancer themselves.

“He’d be really pleased to

see me not having a drink

as well, you know, because

we all know the harmful

effects of alcohol,” she said.

In spite of not being

a huge drinker, Ms Underwood

has about four

glasses of wine a week and

she said it has been challenging

cutting drinking

from her routine.

“It’s been hard in a

physical sense. At 6pm,

it would be nice to have a

glass of wine while you’re

getting dinner or whatever,

especially in the winter.

“In terms of doing it,

It’s actually made me feel

stronger in myself, if you

know what I mean. It’s

like, I’ve got the strength to

do this, to do without that

glass of wine,” she said.

She said her four children

and Mr Hanson’s two

children have supported

her during her efforts to

go alcohol-free and raise

money.

They also played a significant

role in supporting

Mr Hanson throughout his

illness, she said.

As of Monday, the 7410

New Zealanders doing Dry

July had raised $461,571

for those affected by

cancer.

Plans for Hororata

Reserve released

RESIDENTS CAN have

their say on the proposed

plan for an upgrade of one

of New Zealand’s s oldest

reserves.

The district council and

Go Hororata are working

with Hamish Shaw Architects

and project partner

Canopy Landscape Architects,

to develop a master

plan for the Hororata

Reserve.

The plan also includes a

concept and location for

the possible new Hororata

Community Centre.

The Hororata Reserve is

one of the biggest and oldest

reserves in the country.

It is believed the land

was vested to the community

by the owner of

Hororata Station, John

Cordy, in the 1870s.

Architect Hamish Shaw

said: “The plan is the

result of 11 months of

work by the project team,

including a public workshop

and other discussions

with the community

and groups that use the

reserve

“The purpose of the

master plan is to look

forward 10 to 20 years and

make sure that the reserve

continues to be developed

to serve the community.’

Mr Shaw said completing

the reserve master plan

at the same time as beginning

the early concept

planning for the Hororata

Community Centre allows

them to look at the big

picture.

The community is

invited to submit their

feedback on the Hororata

Reserve Master Plan

through the online form

at: www.selwyn.govt.nz/

hororatareserve. Feedback

must be submitted by

Friday, July 24.

Independent member

appointed to subcommittee

AN independent

member has been

appointed to the

district council’s

audit and risk

subcommittee for the

first time.

Analisa Elstob, a

chartered accountant

with 20 years’

experience in global

risk management, has been

appointed for a four-year term

to the subcommittee.

The subcommittee provides

oversight of the district council’s

finances and compliance

Analisa Elstob ​

with legislation, policies

and procedures,

as well as identifying

and addressing risks.

Elstob is the first independent

appointee

to the subcommittee.

The appointment

of an independent

member to local

government audit and

risk committees is strongly

recommended by the Auditor

General and by the Productivity

Commission to provide

more skills and independent

advice.

Elstob is a director of the

Canterbury Cricket Association

and chairwoman of its

finance, audit and risk committee.

She has also worked in

executive roles at Ngāi Tahu

Holdings, Central Government,

and Ernst & Young.

Said district council chief

executive David Ward: “Ms Elstob

brings a fresh view point

and a wealth of skill to the

position, which was important

when considering the council’s

finances and making sure

money was spent wisely and

risks to the council lowered as

much as possible.

“It’s a real positive for the

district to have someone of

such a high calibre of experience

and skills coming on

board to support us,” he says.

“Ms Elstob will bring a fresh

and independent view to the

subcommittee.

“She showed an in-depth

knowledge of the issues

the district and the council

face, and will bring valuable

insights into how we can

improve in the way we work to

manage those risks.”

Paige in charge

Six-year-old Paige McLeod was made the owner of a

supermarket in what was a shared birthday treat.

Paige spent her birthday running the West Melton Four

Square store, marking the brand’s 96th anniversary.

Her mother, Kylie Phaup-Stephens said it was a birthday

to remember. “It was a really, really cool day. Paige was

a bit shy at first but she really warmed to it and I couldn’t

get her out of the shop in the end.” A Four Square

spokeswoman said when they found out about Paige

being their biggest fan, they decided to make it a special

birthday for her.

Borrowing

boost for

council

THE DISTRICT council has

received a significant boost as it

battles with the financial fall out

from Covid-19.

The Local Government

Funding Agency which finances

council’s across the country has

increased the amount which local

authorities can borrow.

The agreement means councils,

like the district council, with a

long-term credit rating of “A”

or higher can increase their

borrowing ratio of 250 per cent

net debt to revenue to 300 per

cent until 2022.

Last week it was announced the

district council has received an

AA+ credit rating – equal to the

highest credit rating given to any

council in the country.

The district council is expecting

to borrow an additional $30 to

$50 million this financial year to

cover the costs of major projects.

A district council spokesman

said the amount is dependant on

the speed of the capital projects

programme.

Earlier this year the district

council sought five individual

loans, each $5 million, bringing

the total debt to $35.2 million.

Weed strikeforce fighting back

NATIVE vegetation at Lake

Ellesmere is getting a boost

due to the work of the weed

strikeforce team.

Grey willow, yellow flag iris,

reed canary grass, blackberry,

elderberry and gorse have been

the targets of Department of

Conservation rangers recently as

part of the Whakaora Te Waihora

restoration programme.

The most

recent target

for the crew of

five is stopping

the spread of

seed-producing

female grey

willow trees

David Murphy

around the

edges of Lake

Ellesmere.

The team reported that all

willow and weed control targets

for the last financial year were

met, with willows and weeds

controlled over 794.5ha.

Selwyn-Waihora zone programme

implementation lead

David Murphy said in terms

of visible results, the project is

second to none.

“This is one of the biggest

bang-for-restoration-buck

projects around because once

the willows and weeds are controlled

on the lakeshore, natural

regeneration occurs.

BOOST: Weed strikeforce team members on a day of weed control at Lake Ellesmere which

aims to increase native vegetation in the area. ​

“Native plants will have the

room to grow well without

having to compete with the

exotic species, so at most sites

there is no need for planting

and the associated costs,” he

said.

The weed strikeforce team

is funded by Environment

Canterbury and has successfully

targeted weeds and achieved

conservation gains for Lake

Ellesmere over the past two

years.

DOC senior biodiversity ranger

Anita Spencer said weeds will

also be controlled in ecologically

sensitive areas of Lakeside and

Harts Creek Wildlife Management

Reserves.

“These sites are home to some

of New Zealand’s most special

and secretive swamp birds,

such as the australasian bitter

(matuku) and marsh crake

(koitareke). The weed strikeforce

team will help to stop the loss

of their native habitat caused by

willows invading wetlands,” she

said.”

Between spring and

autumn, when the team isn’t

controlling weeds, they support

the complementary one billion

trees project with the aim of

planting and maintaining

100,000 native trees around

lakeshore reserves over three

years.

Farming community helps raise funds

for Kirwee Volunteer Fire Brigade

THE KIRWEE Volunteer Fire

Brigade received support from

the local farming community

that raised more than $3500

through the annual PGG

Wrightson and Ballance Agri-

Nutrients Cash for Communities

programme.

A barbecue was held recently

bringing the farming community

together to say thanks for supporting

the local brigade.

At the event, a cheque of $3742

raised through the Cash for

Communities programme was

presented to Kirwee Volunteer

Fire Brigade, chief fire officer,

Stuart Jones.

Mr Jones represents the hard

work and commitment shown

by the volunteer firefighters who

serve the Kirwee community.

He received the Queen’s Service

Medal in the 2020 New Year’s

Honours List for his services

to Fire and Emergency New

Zealand having been a firefighter

since 1974.

Mr Jones said receiving the financial

boost was a great feeling,

particularly as it was through the

community. “It gives us the tools

to provide a better service to the

community when they need us.

It’s all for the community.”

He said the brigade was always

fortunate with the high level of

community involvement they

receive.

“The Kirwee community find

out exactly what we’re funding

for and they come on board and

support us.”

Said Kirwee farmer Andrew

Brooker who attended the barbecue:

“The Kirwee Fire Brigade

is all run by volunteers, they’re

all good enough to give up their

time and leave their jobs, at all

hours of the day and night, and

we think it’s the least we can do

to support them really.”

The barbecue, held at the

Kirwee Fire Brigade, had a great

turnout with the local farmers

who nominated the brigade attending.

They were able to nominate

by purchasing participating

Ballance Agri-Nutrients fertiliser

through PGG Wrightson and

Fruitfed Supplies, earning $1

per tonne for the brigade during

spring 2019.

Representatives from the PGG

Wrightson’s Darfield store and

local Ballance Agri-Nutrients

staff contributed to this impressive

effort, encouraging local

customers to nominate the fire

brigade when purchasing fertiliser

during the specified time.

Rural communities throughout

the country can benefit

from the Cash for Communities

programme. The partnership

formed by PGG Wrightson and

Ballance Agri-Nutrients raises

funds for charities and organisations

who provide valuable

support to rural communities

nationwide.

Since 2011 the programme

has raised $550,000 for schools,

rescue helicopters, Rural Support

Trust and many other charities

and organisations who play a

pivotal role in their respective

regions.

Celebrating Selwyn’s

Covid heroes

Selwyn’s Covid heroes will be recognised in a new initiative recognising the huge efforts made by

people during the lockdown period.

The Council has partnered with The Selwyn Times and Te Taumutu Ru¯nanga to launch Selwyn’s

Covid Heroes – a way for the community to recognise the ‘amazing’ people that made a difference

during the pandemic.

If you know of an individual, organisation, business, charity or essential service that made an

outstanding contribution to your community over the past few months you can nominate them for

a Selwyn’s Covid Heroes certificate.

“This is an opportunity for the community to say thank you to those who went the extra mile as

we dealt with COVID-19 and the lockdown,” says Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton.

Anyone who lives in Selwyn can make a nomination. Every nominee will receive a certificate with

their name on it thanking them for being such a great member of our community.

Four recipients that represent the range of nominations will be selected to receive their certificates

at a ceremony in August.

For information and to make a nomination visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/heroes or pick up a form at

any Selwyn Library and Service Centre.

Feedback sought on plans for Hororata Reserve

A proposed new plan for the Hororata Reserve has been released for people to have their say.

Selwyn District Council and Go Hororata are working with Hamish Shaw Architects and project partner

Canopy Landscape Architects, to develop a Master Plan for the Hororata Reserve.

The community is invited to submit their feedback on the plan through the online form at selwyn.govt.nz/

hororatareserve by Friday 24 July.

The plan is the result of 11 months’ work by the project team, including a public workshop and other

discussions with the community and groups that use the domain, Hamish Shaw says.

Video presentations and an online feedback form have been created to allow people to view the plan and

engage with it in their own time.

The purpose of the Master Plan is to look forward 10–20 years and make sure that the Reserve

continues to be developed to serve the community, including a possible site for the planned Hororata

community centre he says.

The Master Plan has looked to further

establish the reserve as a community hub and

enhance its existing character.

“The community centre will be a multi-use

space which integrates into the Reserve. This

is the very first step in the Community Centre

design and there is still a lot more work to be

done but from this, we start to see how the

building could function,” Mr Shaw says.

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.

Leeston Road and Old Bridge Road intersection is being upgraded. Traffic management is in place.

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

Experienced, independent voice

to support Council

The Council has appointed an experienced, independent director to

its Audit and Risk Subcommittee.

Analisa Elstob, a chartered accountant with 20 years’ experience in

global risk management has been appointed to the subcommittee

for a four-year term.

The Audit and Risk Subcommittee provides ongoing oversight

of the Council’s finances, compliance with legislation, and policies

and procedures, as well as identifying and addressing risk.

Ms Elstob is the first independent appointee to the subcommittee.

The appointment of an independent member to local government

audit and risk committees is strongly recommended by the Auditor

General and the Productivity Commission to provide additional skill

and independent advice.

Ms Elstob is a Director on the Canterbury Cricket Association and

Chair of its Finance, Audit and Risk Committee. She has worked

in executive roles at Ngāi Tahu Holdings, Central Government, and

Ernst & Young.

Council Chief Executive David Ward says Ms Elstob brings a

fresh view point and a wealth of skill to the position, which was

important when considering the Council’s finances, making sure

money is spent wisely and risks lowered as much as possible.

“It’s a real positive for the district to have someone of such a high

calibre of experience and skills coming on board to support us. She

has shown an in-depth knowledge of the issues we face and will

bring valuable insights into how we can improve in the way we work

to manage those risks.”

Selwyn Aquatic Centre

one-day closure

The Selwyn Aquatic Centre will close for a day next week 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 the full complex for the 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

the Level 3 lockdown period meaning the shutdown was able to be

reduced to one day.

This week we talk to Makkala Rose and Nick Noonan from Love Craft Atelier.

Tucked away off State Highway 75 in Tai Tapu, Love Craft Atelier tattoo studio will have their official

opening on 11 July.

Owners Makkala Rose and Nick Noonan recently bought a house near Akaroa and were looking for a

secluded stand-alone store close by.

Makkala saw the store vacancy in Tai Tapu and remembers saying to Nick, “I want to work there”.

A few months later they fitted the store with a tattoo studio in the back and gallery area in the front to

sell some of their art.

“It’s the perfect location. It’s a bit more off the beaten path and lots of our clients have enjoyed the fact

that it’s here and out of the city,” Makkala says.

The pair have worked in tattoo studios in New Zealand and around the world. For the past three years,

Nick was based in Auckland while Makkala traveled around the United States and United Kingdom,

returning here in October last year.

Throughout their travels, they won awards for their

tattoos and built up a large following on social media,

widely recognised for their high end distinctive tattoo

styles; Makkala in illustrative realism specialising in

florals and Nick in Japanese and realism tattooing.

“We’ve got people who’ve flown internationally and

people that have come from all sorts of different

places around New Zealand to get tattoos,” she says.

Many of their travelling clients end up staying for

a little holiday and as a way of supporting local,

Makkala and Nick give their clients a tour guide

leaflet with local cafés and activities.

Tattooing is more than just a job, they say, after ten

years of experience it is their ‘love craft’ and they

describe it as ‘permanent fine arts’, artwork someone

can carry with them forever.

Restrictions no problem for

pharmacy staff and customers

The team at Unichem West Melton Pharmacy say they

are as glad as the rest of the country to now be at Alert

Level 1.

“The COVID-19 lockdown meant we all had to

change what we were doing,” says owner Chris Leggett.

“Even though the pharmacy was still open, there

were restrictions on who and how many people were

allowed to come into the store.”

Chris says all of these rapid changes meant that

the West Melton pharmacists administered ’flu

vaccinations in cars, prescriptions were delivered to

homes all over the area, and other items were taken to

people in their cars, with a portable EftPos machine

enabling them to pay.

Some pharmacies would split their staff in half

to reduce risk if someone got sick, Chris says.

“Unfortunately, we were never in that position due

to the numbers needed to cover things. The tireless

work of Natalie and Jo– doing extra hours, deliveries,

checking people at the door, all meant we could

function as close to normal as possible.

“The days leading up to Level 4 were the busiest

I have worked in any pharmacy in almost 20 years.

Between the prescriptions, phone calls, general

queries, it was beyond

anything I had seen

before.

“The people of

West Melton were so

compliant when being

faced with all these

changes. It made things

flow much more easily

and no-one was ever

grumpy or frustrated if

they had to wait,” Chris

says.

“We definitely don’t

want to go back to

a Level 4 situation

again. It would be so

demoralising for everyone after such an awesome

effort in getting to where we are as a country now.”

The Unichem West Melton Pharmacy, Shop 12,

736 Weedons Ross Road, West Melton, is open

Monday to Friday from 8.30am-6pm and Saturday

9am-1pm. Phone 347-0777.

The Next Big Thing...

West Melton

Funds donated to local

service organisations

The Selwyn Garden Expo hosted by the West Melton

Garden Club took place at West Melton Community

Centre on December 1 last year, drawing crowds of

enthusiastic gardeners.

The aim was to showcase the Selwyn and

nearby areas, promote gardening, and bring the

community together by providing an entertaining

and informative afternoon. Organisers said it was

not intended as a fundraiser for the club, but thanks

to the support from locals and the success of the day,

they were able to make contributions to two local

organisations – $1,000 to the West Melton Volunteer Rural Fire Force and $1,000 to the St

John Ambulance Service Rolleston.

Fire Force Controller for the West Melton Volunteer Rural Fire Force John Doherty said

the donation was a surprise and he and his team were thrilled to receive it.

“It’s always good to get recognised – we are very appreciative.”

The money will be used to fund the upcoming awards dinner, at which fire service

volunteers are to be recognised for their contribution.

At least two members will receive the New Zealand Fire Brigades Long Service and

Good Conduct Medal.

This is awarded after 14 years of qualifying service and is a gazetted (official) medal. A

clasp is awarded for each additional seven years after that.

Forest & Rural Fire Association of New Zealand (FRFANZ) medals will also be given

out. It is awarded after three years’ qualifying service with an additional bar (clasp)

awarded for every three years after that. Three medals and 10 bars will be presented. “The

awards recognise the significant commitment and time the members have made to the

unit and local community,” John says. “To date we have had 74 call-outs for the financial

year.” St John Ambulance Service Rolleston has not yet decided how the donation will be

used, area secretary St John Selwyn Central Glenys Mitchell said. “We really appreciate the

donation and we will be putting it back into the Selwyn community,” she said.

As their name suggests

they are more often found

present as adults from

October to May.

They are smallish brown

moth with a 15-26mm

wingspan and two or three

distinctive darker dots on

each of their forewings.

Larvae feed on dry

organic detritus from

consuming carpets,

College from a student-led

book sale.

Thousands of books,

DVDs, magazines, puzzles

and records that were donated

by students and the

wider community were up

for sale at the school.

Student Margarida Dias

said they managed to raise

$1333 from the sale.

“This means it was a

worthwhile event and

do annually.”

raised from the book sale

to run a drive-in movie

event for students and the

community to enjoy.

“Another proposal

involves working together

with other schools for a

which is very exciting.”

She said the Ellesmere

College student council

would like to thank the

students, parents and

members of the community

for all their support.

The idea behind the

book sale was to make

up for lost fundraising

efforts during the Covid-19

Margarida said the

lockdown brought big

challenges for the school.

“The student council

has barely had an

opportunity to come

Upskilling

transforms

careers

Do you ever look at your boss and think

“I could do that job better”? Or wonder

what it would take to get a promotion? If

you’re seeking to advance your career, now

could be the perfect time to ‘sharpen your

tools’.

Ara Institute of Canterbury has decades of

experience in helping people to upskill and

move ahead in their chosen field. It offers

area-specific professional development,

for example in nursing and IT, and short

courses in subjects that can benefit anyone,

like everyday computing, leadership and

health and safety.

Ara also has more advanced upskilling

opportunities like diplomas and graduate

diplomas that can be studied part-time

while you’re working. This option worked

well for Caleb McGrail when he was a

carpentry apprentice.

“I wanted to progress my career within

the industry,” Caleb explains. “I chose a

diploma in construction management at

Ara because it was a locally based course

that I could study part-time while I worked,

and because it met my educational needs.”

Caleb says the diploma course enabled

him to see beyond his role as a carpenter

and how it integrates with other roles in the

industry. He’s now a leading hand carpenter,

working on new builds, refurbishments

and fit-out projects. He says his upskilling

experience enabled him to progress with

Available now:

Fees-free* study is now available at

Ara Institute of Canterbury for select

courses starting in July. Help get the

his employer Brosnan Construction and

he’s enjoying being able to use his new

knowledge to benefit his role.

Ara’s short upskilling courses can reap

rewards too, as Thomas King discovered.

A co-director of a logistics business, he

realised he needed to embrace technology

rather than fear it.

“The world is rapidly changing and

having some confidence and competence

in computing is crucial,” he says. Thomas

took his first steps at Ara Connect, which

offers free, non-assessed computing courses

for anyone wanting to gain skills and

confidence using digital technology.

“I fell in love with collaboration tools

which can help me complete a host of

project management tasks. Knowing how to

use computers in a way that delivers results

makes life so much easier, especially in

business. I certainly wish I’d taken courses

like these years ago.”

Check out these easy deepfried

cauliflower steaks with

lightly toasted ciabatta rolls.

Make these super simple

veggie burgers for a quick

dinner for four

Spicy cauliflower steak

burgers

Serves 4

Ingredients

½ cucumber, thinly sliced

1 tbsp white wine vinegar

1 tbsp sugar

1 cauliflower, medium

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp smoked paprika

2 tbsp plain flour, well seasoned

100g dried white breadcrumbs

2 eggs, beaten

Peanut oil for frying

4 ciabatta rolls, toasted/halved

4 tbsp hummus

Rocket, a small handful

Red pepper 4 slices

Hot sauce to serve (optional)

Directions

Toss the cucumber with the

vinegar and sugar, and leave while

you prep the burgers.

Put the cauliflower stalk-end

down on a chopping board.

Trim the ends off two sides

of the cauliflower then cut

the remainder into 2cm slices

through the root to make four

‘steaks’ (you can freeze the

leftovers for soup or cauliflower

cheese). Trim them down slightly

if they’re much bigger than the

size of the buns.

Divide the spices equally between

the flour and breadcrumbs in two

shallow bowls.

Dust each cauli steak in the

flour. Dip in the beaten egg then

coat in the breadcrumbs.

Heat 1cm deep of oil in a large

frying pan. Cook the steaks on

a medium heat for about 5min

each side until crisp, golden and

tender.

To build the burgers, spread the

top and bottom of each bun with

hummus. Add a few rocket leaves

then a slice of pepper. Top with the

cauli steak, some drained pickled

cucumber, and some hot sauce, if

using. Put on the tops and serve.

Our creamy cauliflower

soup is spiced with curry

powder for a low-calorie

Spiced cauli soup

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 cauliflower, large (about 450g)

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1 tbsp medium curry powder

1 litre vegetable stock

100g Greek yogurt

½ lemon, juiced

Directions

Trim all of the florets from the

cauliflower and cut into chunky

pieces, keeping back two of the

nicer florets for later. Finely chop

the stem.

Heat the vegetable oil in a

large pan and cook the chopped

cauliflower florets and stem with

the onion over a medium heat for

10min, stirring regularly, until the

cauliflower is deeply golden.

Tip in the garlic and cook for

2min, then add the curry powder

and cook for 1min.

Pour in the vegetable stock

and simmer for 20min until the

cauliflower is starting to break

down. Stir through the yogurt,

then use a stick blender to whizz

until completely smooth.

Use a sharp knife or mandoline

to very thinly slice the two

cauliflower florets you kept back.

Gently toss them with a little

seasoning and the lemon juice.

Pour the soup into bowls

and top with the thinly sliced

cauliflower, and a grinding of

black pepper, if you like.

‘Rogue vines’ stick

out like a sore thumb

Term 3 at Papanui

High School

• By Mark Henderson

VERY MANY years ago,

I helped friends plant out

their vineyard.

The bare vines were in

bundles of 25, the only clue

as to their identity the tag

that enclosed them.

It was only when they

first bore fruit that it

became apparent that there

were a number of “rogue

vines’.’

In a predominantly

pinot noir and chardonnay

vineyard, the random

gewurztraminer and pinot

gris vines stood out like

sore thumbs.

French and pinot gris has

a peachy grey hue that is

quite distinctive.

Learning returns

to the heart of

the city

The WEA is delighted to be opening

its doors again for the return of adult

and community educational classes

this coming term. During lockdown a

shortened programme of 20 online items

was offered free of charge. The 300+

registrations showed there was a real

desire to keep learning through the

crisis. Wendy Butcher from the CWEA

Council (governance team) said that

“for some of our members with limited

computer knowledge, learning online

was a huge challenge, we commend

those in our community who embraced

technologies like Zoom and showed

their determination to stay connected”.

Now that people can be back in the

building however, there is a real sense

of the importance of face to face

interactions: for learning, for depth of

communication and for well-being.

There is an exciting programme

of events and courses on offer,

from: Looking and Understanding

Polynesian Art to Understanding the

Treaty of Waitangi in 2020. To find

School of Music

The Chinese philosopher, Confucius

said long ago “Music produces a kind of

pleasure which human nature cannot do

without”. Playing an instrument has many

benefits and can bring a great deal of joy

to the performer and the listener. Studies

continue to prove that participating in

musical activities, has many positive

effects on the brain as well as a student’s

health and well-being. Some of the proven

benefits include:

1) Increased memory capacity

2) Improved language ability

3) Increased empathy

4) Improved self-confidence

5) Increased attention span and focus

6) Self-discipline

The Christchurch School of Music is

a family-oriented community aimed at

providing quality music education in and

around Christchurch.

On a Saturday morning the whole family

can find something to

suit. Preschool and

junior school children

can start their musical

journey by joining

in our “Take Off

with Music” classes

while older children and adults may

opt for lessons on a specific instrument

(including voice). Those who already play

are welcome to join in one of the great

ensembles which all take part in regular

concerts.

Age is no limit - our Late Starters

programme provides the opportunity for

adults to learn an instrument and join an

ensemble with other like-minded adults.

If Saturday isn’t an option, CSM also

offers a range of weekday opportunities

for learning and playing music and, if

affordability is an issue, CSM may be

able to offer a discount through funding

provided by the Rata Foundation and

CERT.

Term 3 starts on Saturday 25 July and

we can take new enrolments in most

instruments and ensembles.

Please contact us via our website www.

csm.org.nz and let us start you on a

musical journey that will bring pleasure

for a lifetime.

Gardening

Plant now for spring strawberries

GOING INTO the middle of

winter, air and soil temperatures

are low, the soil is often very wet,

and frosts are in many parts of

southern New Zealand.

July is the main month for

planting new deciduous trees,

shrubs, fruit trees and roses, and

garden centres are now fully

stocked with these plants. Always

select high quality specimens

and plant correctly with plenty of

compost into the existing soil.

In the vege patch, continue

planting and harvesting broccoli,

brussel sprouts, cabbages,

cauliflower, silverbeet and

spinach. Where soil conditions

allow, you can start preparing the

vege garden for spring planting.

In late July, chop up and dig in

green manure crops like lupins or

mustard.

If you have roses, complete

your annual pruning, especially

on bush or standards that

produce flowers late into early

winter such as Icebergs.

Remove all dead and weak

growth, clean out the centre of

plants and prune to outward

facing buds. Add fresh compost

to the soil around the rose plant,

but do not fertilise until spring

arrives.

In warmer, sheltered areas,

TASTY: Strawberries take around four to six weeks to produce fruit. Plant around 20 to ensure good supply. Now is the time to

add compost to your roses.

citrus production should be

in full swing, with clementine

mandarins, lemons, limes and

navel oranges all now maturing.

Check your trees while picking

fruit for any overcrowding or

weak branches that should be

removed. Check for any root

stock growth and prune where

required. For colder climates, use

frost cloths to protect frost tender

citrus.

Give fruit trees a second winter

clean up. Spray with a copper

compound or lime sulphur to

kill any overwintering fungal

diseases.

Now’s the time to prune your

blackberries, boysenberries,

loganberries, or raspberries. Cut

out all old canes and any weak

spindly growth. New season

strong canes should then be tied

up on wires or fences to help

support this summer’s fruit crop.

Complete your strawberry

plantings this month. Purchase

new plants or obtain young plants

(runners) from the previous

season strawberry plants. For the

home garden, plant at least 20

strawberry plants to ensure plenty

of fresh strawberries for the

whole family.

Your hydrangeas may be

starting to look a little sad.

They can grow very large and

require heavy pruning

and thinning. Remove old wood

completely as there will be ample

new growth in spring. Make sure

you cut just above a node as it is

appear.

Compact venue faces tough opposition

QUITE SIMPLY, I don’t

understand how it works, two

companies under the one umbrella

selling similar models.

I’m talking about Hyundai and

Kia, both of which have released

the Venue and Seltos respectively,

small sport utility vehicles that have

just landed in the New Zealand

market.

I’m a big believer in shared

product development and

componentry, it makes for cost

savings which then trickle down to

the customer, but these two models

compete in a tight market where

choices will be made solely on cost

and value.

Regular readers may recall

my Kia Seltos evaluation in late

March. The car in this review is

Hyundai’s Venue, and while both

share the same floorpan and many

similarities,there are plenty of

differing features such as exterior

design and drivelines.

The Venue also has a shorter

wheelbase than the Seltos, and

measures just 4m against the Seltos

at 4.3m. But therein lies a bit of a

trick, for those who definitely want,

or need, a small SUV then the

Venue is the pick.

It fits into a market where the

buyer will benefit from the easy

access up front and tall seat height,

it’s great for those in my generation

who are advancing in years. If you

don’t have young ones in tow or

seldom have rear seat passengers

and like the manoeuvrability short

cars offer, then the Venue has

advantages.

It also has a more traditional

driveline, its 1.6-litre engine is

paired to a six-speed automatic

gearbox, as opposed to the

continuously variable transmission

in the Seltos. And if you are already

thinking that the Venue’s 1591cc

engine wouldn’t compete against its

stablemate’s 2-litre unit, then think

again. Hyundai rate the Venue at

90kW and 151Nm, and although

both outputs are realised tall in the

rev band at 6300rpm and 4850rpm

respectively, the engine doesn’t

work overly hard.

That’s because at just over

1100kg, the Venue in total is a

lightweight, and that doesn’t ask

much from under the bonnet.

This engine is used widely across

the Hyundai/Kia range, in turbo

and non-turbo form, it is a sweet

unit that delivers smoothly and

quietly. The naturally aspirated unit

in the Venue is responsive and fills

the close gaps between gears easily.

In terms of performance, the

Venue will reach 100km/h from

a standstill in 11sec. It isn’t a fast

car, but then again the market it is

destined for doesn’t require speed,

HYUNDAI VENUE ELITE: Short-wheelbase translates to

manoeuvrability.

it is capable amidst the hurly burly

of today’s traffic, and that is all that

would be requested from it.

Hyundai claims a combined

cycle average fuel usage figure

of 7.2-litres per 100km. That fits

well with the consumption gauge

in the test car, it was showing

8.4l/100km when I returned it to

the dealership.

In Elite form the Venue rides on

205/55 x 17in Nexen tyres, that is

quite a sizeable amount of rubber

for a small car, but the benefit is the

grip that can be gleaned and the

associated ride benefits.

The Venue gets a torsion beam

rear suspension; put simply, each

wheel is not independent from the

other, there’s an axle tying them

together which doesn’t allow as

much freedom as there would be

otherwise.

That’s fine, so long as the spring

and damper rates have been well

chosen; thankfully, Hyundai have

done a lot of development work for

Australasian roads and the Venue

has a comfortable, absorbent ride

with tidy handling manners.

At almost 1.6m tall, you would

expect some gravitational effect,

but it is arrested well, body

movement over the suspension

won’t lurch occupants.

In Elite form the Venue has

enough wizardry to keep buyers

happy. Major items of fitment

include part leather trim, keyless

entry and ignition, central screen

touch display, Apple Car Play

and Android Auto capability and

• Price – Hyundai Venue

automatic.

• Performance –

• Fuel usage – 7.2l/100km

heated steering wheel, the latter

ideal for those frosty Canterbury

mornings soon to arrive.

For safety, the Venue has a lot

of the kit Hyundai has developed

for its car range. The list is too

extensive to detail, but I’m

sure it will easily fit a five-star

Australasian New Car Assessment

Program rating when crash testing

is carried out.

If you don’t need all the bells

and whistles of the Elite, the Venue

also lands here in entry-level form,

it doesn’t miss out on much and

will still give plenty of satisfaction

within the buying experience.

The Venue lands at a special

launch price. It lists at $27,990

for a limited time. It will go up to

$29,990at any given point, and

you’d need to add $4k for Elite

trim.

That doesn’t quite meet the keen

price of Kia Seltos, but it is close

and with the Venue’s extra goodies

I guess buyer choice will come

down to whatever feels right on the

day of purchase.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Design to the fore

If you like warmth, spaciousness and indoor outdoor

flow, you will love Faye Homes’ latest showhome.

Located in Lincoln’s Te Whāriki housing estate, this

250sqm, four bedroom home is ideal for a family or

those wanting a little more space.

The home’s u-shape design sits well on the 672spm

section and gains full benefit from the sun, which

streams into all living spaces.

The front entry seamlessly separates the lounge/

media room from the other parts of the home affording

a wonderful, sunny yet secluded setting to relax or

watch a movie. Double stacking sliders lead from this

room to a large north-facing, hardwood deck. This is

also accessed from the living room where more sliders

lead out to a second hardwood deck and private garden

beyond.

The light, bright kitchen is well appointed with

quality appliances, engineered stone bench tops, and an

island with a sink, tower faucet and space for informal

dining. There is plenty of cupboard space here and in

the walk-in pantry. The width of this room allows for

double ovens. These have been positioned in raised

cabinetry at an ideal height, eliminating the need to

bend or reach without visually closing in the room.

A clever allocation of space is the built-in study

nook (tucked just beyond the kitchen) and retreat area,

which also act as access points to the bedroom wing,

from the living areas.

All four bedrooms are doubles, clustered at the rear

of the home for privacy and quiet. The master bedroom

has a walk-in robe, ensuite (complete with tiled walk-in

shower, hanging double sink vanity and toilet), and

sliders accessing the second deck.

The main bathroom has a bath, corner shower

and hanging vanity. In the laundry, there is built-in

cabinetry and space for both washing machine and

dryer. A separate toilet with small hand basin offers

convenience. All wet area floors are fully tiled.

A great deal of thought has gone into the design

of this highly specified home where there is plenty

of storage, such as the large built-in cupboard in the

internal double garage, as well as the coat, cylinder and

larger cupboards.

Quality is evident throughout while stunning features

serve up ideas on how you might tailor your new home

so it best suits your needs.

Faye Homes’ Lincoln showhome is located at 164

Southfield Drive in the Te Whāriki subdivision. It is

open: Saturdays and Sundays from 12noon until 4pm

and weekdays by appointment.
