THE BLEAK weather didn’t dampen the

enthusiasm of a big crowd which turned out

to mark Jason Pietzner’s 300th division 1

rugby match for Lincoln on Saturday.

Pietzner, 39, who is in his 20th season for

Lincoln, “retired” in 2014, but has been back

and forward over the seasons since.

Two seasons ago he suffered a serious eye

injury and again it appeared his playing

days were over.

“I’m pretty happy now that it’s finally

rolled around as it’s been hanging over me

for me for a while now,” he said of the 300

games.

For the record Darfield beat Lincoln 50-14.

won’t

challenge

over

quarry

• By Devon Bolger

THE CANTERBURY District

Health Board will not challenge

Fulton Hogan’s bid to change the

conditions under which it must

operate its quarry near Weedons.

Last week Selwyn Times revealed

Fulton Hogan has appealed

15 conditions it will be allowed to

operate the 170ha Roydon Quarry

under.

This includes the monitoring

of dust at the quarry and the

requirement to prepare a report

on the results within one month

of a 12-month monitoring programme.

Other conditions Fulton Hogan

is appealing includes the requirement

for six dust monitoring

devices to be installed prior to

quarry activities occurring and the

company needing to ensure heavy

vehicle movements leaving or accessing

the quarry use the direct

route comprising State Highway 1,

Jones and Dawsons Rds.

WEEDONS resident Simon

Moore has a fair point over

his frustration in the latest

Fulton Hogan quarry saga

development.

We reveal on page 1 today

the Canterbury District

Health Board will not get

involved in Fulton Hogan’s

appeal to change some of

the conditions on how it

must operate the Roydon

Quarry.

That challenge includes

how dust is monitored – a

health issue.

The CDHB made a

submission to the hearings

panel which granted resource

consent for the quarry. This

included how dust should be

monitored.

So why doesn’t the CDHB

get involved in contesting

that appeal as the Christchurch

City Council has?

As Moore says: “Do they

not care?”

Also, congratulations to

Jason Pietzner for clocking

up 300 division 1 games for

Lincoln (page 1).

Lincoln manse

building on the market for $1

• By Devon Bolger

YOU CAN OWN a piece of

Lincoln’s history for just $1.

The Lincoln Union Church’s

old manse building is up for sale

as long as it is relocated.

Church property committee

member Alex Dunlop said they

can no longer afford to maintain

the manse which was built in 1889.

“We have built a new hall next

to our church and will no longer

require the old manse. We are

keen for someone to remove the

manse from the site to make a

new life for it somewhere else.”

Mr Dunlop said they are

offering the building for $1 in

the hope that someone will

appreciate the history and the

architectural significance of the

building.

Demolition had been planned

for March this year but has been

deferred while the building is

offered for removal first.

The church applied for funding

from the district council so

they could afford to restore the

building but they were unsuccessful.

The district council is proposing

the old manse become a heritage

building and the decision

for this is due in October.

If it does become a heritage

building, it can still be sold and

relocated.

“As the former manse pre-dates

1900, and development of the

property began in the early 1860s,

its site has potential archeological

significance,” a district council

spokesman said.

The 131-year-old building was

the home of the minister of the

Presbyterian Church until the

new manse was built next door

in 1964. In 1887 an architect

was asked to draw up plans for

a seven-room house with stables

and outbuildings.

The manse was completed in

1889 with a small wash house

added in 1892. Further upgrades

included a bath in 1906, a windmill

to replace the hand pump

for water in 1910, electric lights

and a hot water system in 1916.

The Lincoln township was

founded in 1862 after James

Mr Dunlop said there were

already established buildings in

Lincoln before the manse was

built but it would be one of the

earliest ones.

Real estate market buoyant

• By Devon Bolger

THE HOUSING market in the

district appears to be bouncing

back stronger than ever after

Covid-19.

Figures from the Real Estate

Institute of New Zealand’s latest

monthly property report show

the volume of houses sold in the

district increased by 65.5 per

cent between May and June.

It also increased by 19.2 per

cent from the same time last

year.

Said Ray White Town and

Lifestyle Real Estate owner

Brendan Shefford: “With

demand for good property

exceeding supply in Selwyn

along with low-interest rates and

the relaxing of the loan to value

ratio for first-time buyers, June

was a truly outstanding month

for us.”

Open homes have been drawing

large numbers of interested

buyers.

“This creates competition for

homeowners but also means

some buyers are missing out.

“Nobody knows what the

future holds but the team and

I are remaining extremely

positive and listing and selling

as strongly as ever, so long may it

continue.”

Harcourts Lincoln principal

officer James Twiss said the

housing market in the district

has come back stronger than

other places across the country.

“This is because of the value

the district is offering to purchasers,

particularly first home

buyers and investors,” he said.

“Banks are now offering

mortgages in the mid two per

cent range and first home buyers

have seen their KiwiSaver

accounts bounce back from

the Covid-19 declines, it makes

sense to get onto the housing

ladder.”

In Rolleston, you can buy a

new three-bedroom home for as

little at $416,000, he said.

“If they are a first home buyer

looking to own or an investor

looking for a low maintenance

property with a good yield then

Rolleston is certainly on their

shopping list.

“This can be said for investors

not only in Canterbury but

from all over the country and

we are seeing plenty of inquiries

from all over particularly

Auckland.”

Mr Twiss said June is traditionally

one of the slow activity

months of the year due to winter

seasonality.

“The real estate market is busy,

not run off its feet, rather more

in a catch-up that is likely to

continue until at least the election.

“From that point forward we

are little uncertain what will

happen, but we are positive given

banks are indicating mortgage

rates will stay low for some time.”

evening

RESIDENTS WILL get a chance

to meet those vying to become the

new Selwyn MP next month.

The Rolleston Residents Association

has organised the event

to give the community the opportunity

to engage with prospective

Government representatives in

the lead-up to the general election

on September 19.

Chairwoman Michelle Jones

said: “This will be a great chance

for residents of Selwyn to make an

informed choice in the forthcoming

elections.”

She said the event will be ticketed

to enable contact tracing in

case of an escalation in Covid-19

alert levels.

The event will take place at the

Rolleston Community Centre on

August 20 at 7pm.

The candidates which are currently

confirmed to attend are

Nicola Grigg (National), Reuben

Davidson (Labour) and Stuart

Armstrong (Act). Abe O’Donnell

was announced as the candidate

for Greens on Saturday.

Current Selwyn MP Amy

Adams has decided to retire from

politics following Todd Muller’s

exit as National leader.

Mrs Jones said tickets for the

event will be free.

Love, Learn and Play

the Freckles way!

OPENING OCTOBER 2020

Freckles Early Learning Centre is a brand new purposebuilt,

spacious facility in Rolleston with the best and

latest pedagogical experiences. Freckles is built on a

massive 3500m2 site and is licensed for only 70 children

centre-wide.

When owners Tracy and Gavin Summerfield were approached

by the developer of Falcons Landing, Rolleston to build

another centre, they thought long and hard about it. They

had observed a number of new centres opening in recent

years but most seemed to be concentrating on larger licences

with smaller sites. So they decided they would do something

different. Freckles has been designed with children in mind,

with spacious indoor and outdoor areas, enabling children to

explore, identify, negotiate, take risks and create meaning to

learn about the world around them.

Freckles will operate three stage and age appropriate

rooms employing qualified teachers in all environments.

Tracy says their success with the couple’s The Cat’s Pyjamas

Rolleston and West Melton early learning centres is built

on having the best possible staff and this will continue at

Freckles. “We are committed to staffing the new centre with

qualified, passionate and caring people who believe in our

vision, values and philosophy. We know they will have relevant

skills and experience, that they will bring something unique

to our team, and that they will put the children in their care

before anything else.”

The Freckles vision: creating places that are rich in love,

laughter and learning.

“Every decision we make comes from the heart,” Tracy

adds. “Our aim is to provide beautiful spaces that are full of

happy, nurtured and challenged children, where the wonder

of learning thrives.’ “To us, family is everything. We are

passionate about creating early learning centres that offer a

safe, welcoming and nurturing environment”.

Freckles Early Learning Centre provides space and

opportunity for physical play.

Play is valuable for children’s physical development as

they run, climb, skip, hop, jump, throw and catch. Physical

play helps build on children’s fine and gross motor skills,

and having the space to provide swings, bike tracks, fixed

and moveable play equipment is very important for child

development.

YOU ARE WARMLY INVITED to follow our journey as

Freckles develops and becomes part of the Rolleston

community.

Still time to recognise district’s heroes

FIFTY-NINE people and

organisations have so far been

nominated for Selwyn’s Covid

Heroes.

The district council

has partnered with the

Selwyn Times and Te Taumutu

Rūnanga to find people and

organisations in the district

who went the extra mile to

help launch Selwyn’s Covid

Heroes.

It is a way for the community

to recognise the

many “amazing” people and

organisations that made a

difference during the Covid-19

pandemic, said mayor Sam

Broughton.

the community over the past

few months. Everyone who is

nominated will receive a Selwyn’s

Covid Heroes certificate.

Said Mr Broughton: “Perhaps

a local shop pulled out

all the stops to make sure they

were there for you when you

needed them, or someone who

helped keep you safe by delivering

your shopping.

“Did a special teacher fill

those Zoom lessons with

fantastic content which helped

your children laugh and learn,

or did somebody simply keep

in contact with you to make

sure you were okay? This is a

“They seem to just pretty

Constable Ingram said if

police see the offenders in the

act, they can be charged with

sustained loss of traction.

The offenders could be jailed

for up to three months or fined

up to $4500 as well as automatically

being disqualified from

driving for at least six months.

“If people are able to get

video footage and registrations

then we can catch up with

Residents form united front

to fight district council

• By Devon Bolger

UPPER SELWYN Huts owners

have formed an incorporated

society to represent the

community in discussions on a

new wastewater system for the

settlement.

A community meeting was

held on Saturday to discuss

changes to licensing fees and the

plans for the wastewater system

on Saturday.

The annual fee, relating to the

resident’s licence to occupy the

land, jumped from $585 to $977

per hut on July 1.

When the community’s new

wastewater system is installed

in about three years the district

council predicts the licence fee

will reach $4618 a year per hut.

In a Facebook post, new Upper

Selwyn Huts committee member

Chris Rossiter said: “A decision

was made to form an incorporated

society representing all owners

at the Upper Selwyn Huts.

“The group has the goal of presenting

a united and organised

position and policy from us to

the district council.”

Mr Rossiter said it appears they

are finally being taken seriously

by Mayor Sam Broughton and

district council staff.

PROGRESS: Upper Selwyn Huts residents have formed an

incorporated society which will lead discussions with the district

council on a new wastewater system for the settlement​.

“This battle is far from over but

my feeling from today [Saturday]

is that we have a positive position

and some great arguments with

the people to present those arguments,

going forward.

“The support and admiration

for the current committee and

what they have already achieved

was noted and endorsed by the

attendees.”

The meeting was held to

discuss the impending fees for

a new wastewater system that

residents will have to pay as well

as changes to their licence fee.

In May last year, the district

council voted that the residents

would have to pay in full for a

wastewater scheme, when its current

scheme expires in June 2020.

The district council’s decision

to decline including the upgrade

in the district-wide rate was due

to climate change threatening the

community’s long-term liveability.

Rolleston roading projects updates

Tennyson Street open

Tennyson Street is now open between Rolleston Drive and Moore Street

following works to upgrade the road to a new high street as part of the

Rolleston Town Centre.

A 30 km/h speed limit is in place for the reopened section of Tennyson Street,

in line with NZTA-recommended safe speed zones for urban centres. The

Markham Way extension will remain open for now.

The footpaths along this section of Tennyson Street are now open including

the new pedestrian crossing south of Te Ara Ātea. Pedestrian access is closed

directly in front of the Te Ara Ātea work site for safety while work is being

carried out on the frontage of the new building.

I usually see a lot of litter

all around the district these

days, and I try as I can to collect

it.

But there are two points that

I believe could reduce rubbish

problems:

Some residents don’t have a

red rubbish bin as it is optional,

so they usually put their rubbish

in yellow bins – that is free.

The council needs to change

its procedure; it should provide

a red rubbish bin for all and

charge the cost on top of the

rates (shouldn’t keep it optional).

All main streets and bus stops

need public rubbish bins, there

are just a few public rubbish bins

in the district.

I’ve raised this issue with the

council before, but it believes

putting more bins in streets

is costly and not necessary –

strange. – Peter Almond

Mine expansion

I am absolutely against any

expansion of coal mining

anywhere in New Zealand.

Global climate change is being

fueled – literally – by dirty coal

and oil.

The more of this that goes on

the worse our environment will

become.

The people who want to grow

rich on these dirty fossil fuels

will be destroying the future of

their own children.

Is some extra cash really worth

that? – Randi Hutchinson

Library’s Maori name

I doubt that I have ever read

a more patronising, politically

correct load of rubbish from the

district council than to name

the new Rolleston Library by

a Maori name only (Te Ara

Atea).

If the Maoris have “gifted” a

title for the library then use it by

all means, but for goodness sake

get real and get off the politically

correct wagon and also call

the library a name we can all

understand and identify with –

Rolleston Library.

The mayor might like a Maori

name only but that doesn’t

mean the ratepayers do and if

the mayor and some councillors

don’t agree with me then they

should do their job and start

asking around. – L Allan

Market day

for street

opening

A COMMUNITY market day

is being held on Friday, 10am-

1pm, to mark the opening of the

upgraded section of Tennyson St

in the Rolleston Town Centre.

Active Explorers Rolleston,

one of the businesses along the

street, has organised the event

alongside other nearby companies.

Said centre manager Pat Williams:

“We have the support of

the roading company Issac Construction

who will be providing

a barbecue, free of charge and

the district council who have

several councillors coming down

to attend.”

He said businesses will be

open and have a stall set-up outside

to support the event.

“This will be a fun community

day to mark this milestone for

Rolleston.”

Work began in January to

upgrade the road to a peoplefriendly

high street with wider

pavements, fresh planting, seating,

landscaping and lighting.

It will act as the new town

centre’s spine, with a lively mix

of retail, entertainment and

community spaces, anchored by

Te Ara Ātea and a town square.

The Flaming Rabbit

streaks past its

second birthday

A steamroller, a fire and a strong Nor’wester is said to be where The Flaming Rabbit

got its name. The 1932 fire spread so quickly from Rolleston to Springston and

Lincoln that everything in its path was decimated.

The Flaming Rabbit is Selwyn’s home of in-house dry-aged beef, where owners Paul

and Tessa raise the South Devon cattle, used in their ageing chiller process, on their

Weedons lifestyle property.

The popular Lincoln bar and restaurant offers friendly dining with a strong focus on

beef and dry aged beef, along with a selection of Monteith’s and Heineken beers plus

a range of local wines and cocktails.

Throughout the year, The Flaming Rabbit hosts a number of events including their famous

wine club on the first Wednesday of the month, Beef ‘n’ Beer dinners, Bottomless Brunches

(26th July), Whisky Evenings (12 Aug), Bubbles Evening (23 Sept) and Gin evening (14 Oct).

Regular specials Monday to Wednesday include Gold Card lunches available 7 days until

3pm, $9 kids meals and Thursday, $20 Curries.

Manager Byron is a keen multi sportsman; the restaurant actively supports local sports

groups - Lincoln cricket and Springston rugby – and features live sports coverage on all

their big screens.

Our People

Bernadette May is Tai

Tapu School’s first

female principal. She

speaks to Devon Bolger

about her passion for

education and wellbeing

How has your time at Tai

Tapu School been so far?

It has been incredibly

rewarding. I started in

October of last year. I think

it was good to have the one

term last year, especially with

Covid-19. The parents, the

students and staff have all been

so welcoming. I came from a

very large school, St Martins,

and I just look at the students

we have here and they are really

uniquely caring and communityfocused.

The community has

made my start here feel very

very positive. I also found out

I am the first female principal

in 152 years of the school being

open. We all celebrate that fact

in the office, it is very interesting

indeed.

How did you end up with this

position?

I was probably ready to be a

principal about eight years ago. I

have always lived in Selwyn and

have visited the school in the

past and I really liked the feel of

INSPIRE: Bernadette May with year 3 and 4 pupils at Tai Tapu school.

it, I love that it is a 150-year-old

school but it is unique because

the buildings are less than 10

years old. At the beginning of

last year, we talked as a family

and I decided I would start

putting my application in for

principalship. I only applied for

one job and it was this one, I

didn’t want to go anywhere else.

I was very fortunate that when

the time was right and the job

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

came up, I achieved that goal. I

feel very blessed.

How does it feel to be the first

female principal at Tai Tapu

School?

I feel really privileged to

Finding balance to be successful principal

AND REFERENDUMS

be the first female to be

appointed principal at Tai Tapu

but also regardless of gender, I

feel really privileged to be the

principal.

Could you tell me about your

career in education?

I came into education slightly

later, I worked in science before.

This is my second career.

When my husband Darryl and

I decided we wanted to start

having kids, I wanted to be

knowledgeable about it so I went

to university to get a degree in

child psychology. A little bit

extreme I know, but I did it.

Then when the kids were ready

for school I decided to train as

a teacher with absolutely no

intention of going into teaching.

It was just so that when I was

talking to the teachers I would

know what they were talking

about. However, once I was

studying I just loved it. I realised

I had found my passion and that

felt really good. I first started

as a teacher in about 1998, so a

while ago now, and it all went

from there. I spent five years

teaching then I was made acting

deputy principal at Elmwood

School. I stayed in that deputy

principal role and then moved to

St Martins School, I was there for

13 years.

Passion projects

podcast launched

From left Selwyn District Youth Councillors Nevaeh Maeder, Laura Hann, Issy Kennedy recording an episode of the podcast.

Inspiring young people to follow their passions is the goal of the latest initiative from the Selwyn

Youth Council.

The Youth Council is launching a podcast series featuring interviews with 14 inspiring Cantabrians

talking about their passions, from designing for London and New York fashion weeks to looking

after endangered sheep.

Youth Council member Laura Hann says they aimed to make the podcasts a quick burst of

inspiration to encourage other young people.

“We thought it was good to have young people who have succeeded in their passions to talk

about them and how to achieve their goals. They were all really talkative and interesting and a 10-

15 minute podcast is a really easy thing to listen to on the way to school. We’re hoping people will

take inspiration for their hobby, or hear something and think, ‘that sounds interesting I could take

that up and look at it further’.”

Their interview with cinematographer John Ross certainly achieved that for her, Laura says,

inspiring her to turn her passion for videography into a career.

Episodes will be released weekly starting on Thursday 23 July with an interview with Anton

Phillipson on the fascinating places his passion for drawing cars has taken him.

The podcast will be available on Spotify by searching Selwyn Youth Council Passion Series

podcast. Links to extra resources and information on each week’s topic will also be made

available through the Council website and Selwyn Libraries.

Celebrating a decade of community

A decade of community catch ups and support has been celebrated.

The first meeting of the Springs Day Club since the Level 4 lockdown would have had a party

atmosphere anyway. However, the meeting had an extra special flavour as the group of more than 50

held a birthday celebration for the 10 years the club has been meeting.

One of four day clubs for senior citizens in Selwyn, supported by the Council’s Community Fund, the

Springs Day Club began as a craft and care group.

Today, the group meets monthly at the Lincoln Event Centre from 10am to 3pm. It's an opportunity to

connect and meet new people in a caring environment. Activities include bowls, raffles, board and card

games, bingo, guest speakers and quizzes. Volunteers prepare a hot lunch and afternoon tea is provided.

The club has proved very popular, providing valuable connections and activities for members, and even

a global pandemic couldn’t dampen their enthusiasm, coordinator Rita Tipples says.

“The majority of the group were really keen. Everyone was so happy to come back.”

The Council’s Community Fund supports groups and organisations that contribute to community

wellbeing. It is available for Selwyn-based not-for-profit community groups looking to run a project,

event or initiative in the district.

New members to the four day clubs are always warmly

welcomed. You can contact any of the clubs on:

Springs Day Club – Sally Marchant 021 157 8373

Darfield Day Club – Jean McLaren (03) 317 9933

Thousands love Selwyn Directory

Thousands of residents have been searching for Selwyn businesses

on the Selwyn Directory.

The Council-run directory offers businesses a free listing providing

the opportunity to advertise their details including a map location,

contacts, website and social media links and a summary of their

business. It also allows businesses to advise customers about their

online sales platform and let people know if they are able to deliver.

Figures show the directory is visited more than 7000 times a

month and sees up to 2000 people each month in the Selwyn and

Christchurch area checking out business listings.

The directory has seen a boost in popularity since the end of the

Level 4 lockdown, more than doubling its average number of visits a

day as Selwyn residents look for local business options.

Restaurants and cafés were the most searched for businesses,

followed by sports and recreation and accommodation.

The directory also has a job vacancies page, where businesses can

list job openings and advertise direct to Selwyn residents.

To search the directory or register your business visit

selwyn.govt.nz/directory or email business.directory@selwyn.govt.nz.

Param Kaur came to New Zealand for the dairy industry, but stayed for the malt and lifestyle.

Param moved to New Zealand four years ago to study at Lincoln University hoping for a gateway into the

dairy industry. But after completing a Graduate Diploma in Science in 2017, Param found herself working at

a company producing not milk, but beer.

She received a phone call from malt growers Gladfield Malt in December 2017 about working as their lab

technician. “It was like an early Christmas present, I can’t express in words.”

Since her first day of work, Param says her kiwi and migrant co-workers have been welcoming and

accepting. “It feels like an extended family for me. Sometimes I get a text from Gabi saying, ‘Drive safely,’

and if they think you are feeling low, they ask if you are okay.”

From her lab window at Gladfield, she can see the mountains. In winter they have

snow on them – a sight she never saw in India.

In fact, when she first arrived in February 2016, she found it freezing compared to the

40 degrees Celsius she was used to. “February is not a cold month, but when you

come from India you do feel cold. I had to wear an extra layer of clothing.” she laughs.

While she misses Indian food and her family, Param enjoys cooking her own Punjabi

dishes and volunteering at Canterbury’s Holi and Diwali festivals. Now settled in

Lincoln, she is hoping to get New Zealand residency.

She enjoys that everything is in walking distance and on her walks she often notices

how welcoming everyone is. “When people pass by, they smile at you and say, ‘hi,’

and ask how you are. You don’t find that in many countries.”

Our People

‘I love working in classrooms’

• From page 13

What are the differences

between working in a city

school and now a semi-rural

school?

I think it is the heart of the

school. There are certain things

that happen here that you would

never get at a city school like pet

day. It is also their very strong

connection to sporting events

and being physically active.

Having said that, the parents are

also really passionate about their

children getting a well-balanced

education, that’s not unique to

rural schools but I think there

is a set of community values

and connections here that are

fantastic. I would say that is the

main thing.

What are your goals for the

school?

We have four cornerstones

that we are working on. We

are looking at making sure

we have really in-depth values

at the school. The first is ako

which is about learning and

everyone being a learner. Then

there is hauora which is about

well-being, kotahitanga which

is community partnership and

our whakapapa which is about

culture and identity. We have

already been doing quite a bit of

work on those things. They are

our four big goals. To be quite

honest, I jump up in the morning

and feel blessed about coming

here. That is not an exaggeration

I genuinely mean that. I love

working in classrooms and Im

very passionate about well-being

and kids having agency so they

can direct their own learning.

Some of the things that we have

done here is to really raise the

focus on our school council. We

have an amazing team called

School Spirit and its their job to

find fun things to do around the

school that gets kids physically

active and makes them feel good

about themselves.

Could you tell me about your

family?

I have a husband and we have

known each other since we were

16. We have been married for 37

years. We have three kids and

seven grandchildren. My mum

has a big family, she is one of 12

and my dad immigrated to New

SLOAN

Zealand from Canada. He came

here after World War 2. He was

a merchant marine when he met

my mum. I have one brother

and my husband is one of four

children.

How long have you lived in

Selwyn?

We have lived in Prebbleton for

12 years and are now building a

house in Lincoln.

What do you like to do for

fun?

I mountain bike, I swim and

I run. They are the three things

that help to maintain my wellbeing.

For relaxation, I paint

and I love to read trashy novels,

which is terrible but I do. My

husband and I have travelled

extensively but now we are

looking for things we can do in

our backyard. Each year we try to

learn something new, last year it

was fusion cooking and this year

my husband and I are picking

up a language and have chosen

te reo. One of the things I have

learnt over the years is for me to

be extremely successful in the

job I do, I have to have balance

outside of it.

Do you have a favourite school

subject?

I actually have a range

of favourites. it is really

interesting because throughout

all of my high school education

I was home-schooled and I

loved the sciences and

mathematics. I like all the

sciences, physics, biology,

chemistry all of those but I don’t

actually like working in the

scientific field. It is because it’s

so isolating and I’m a real people

person. Those are the topics

that I love because they are so

challenging and interesting. I

also really value the arts and

physical education.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Springtails add to abundance of invertebrates

Mike

Bowie is an

ecologist

who

specialises

in entomology (insects and

other invertebrates). Each

week he introduces a new

species found in his backyard

at Lincoln. His column aims

to raise public awareness

of biodiversity, the variety

of living things around us.

Check out the full list of

invertebrates found at www.

inaturalist.org/projects/

backyard-biodiversity-bugsin-my-lincoln-section

IN 1987 the famous American

biologist Edward O Wilson

coined the phrase “the little

things that run the world”

with reference to the ecological

importance of invertebrates as

movers and shakers.

THeir sheer mass puts other

fauna into insignificance. For

example, each hectare in the

Amazon rainforest contains one

billion invertebrates.

One the most abundant insects

contributing to this numerical

dominance are the springtails, or

Collembola.

THey occur from Antarctica

to the tropics and more than

6000 species have been described

worldwide. New Zealand has over

240 Collembola species and many

more are yet to be described by

entomologists.

Most springtails are 2-3mm

long and are found in the soil

or dead bark, where they break

down organic matter.

However in New Zealand,

some colourful giant native

species 8mm in length are found

under bark or in rotten logs in

native forests. Springtails are

often found in massive numbers

in puddles or damp places on

footpaths after rain.

THey get their common name

because most springtails contain

an abdominal appendage called

a furca that can propel them 10-

15mm when jumping.

Although some springtails

in large numbers can do

damage to seedlings or crops

of young lettuce, lucerne, peas

and clover, their diet usually

consists of decaying vegetation

and the associated bacteria and

fungi.

Your family’s health is important during

they are a major way that buildings can

lose heat by up to 25 per cent. Close the

In-home ventilation systems replace

the damp air inside your homes with

creates moisture in the air. Drying them

outside is not only free from the cost

making your clothes healthier for you and

If you use a clothes dryer, make sure

your clothes are properly spun first and

either vent it outside or leave windows

open.

To reduce moisture caused by steam,

always open a window when you are

showering and when you are cooking on

Swimming pools make

a splash this year

Swimming pools have made a huge

splash in popularity this year as people

look towards staying at home rather than

travelling overseas this summer.

Imagine the sound of laughter as family

and friends enjoy splashing around in

your own back yard. For a locally owned

and operated swimming pool supplier

and installer, look no further than Lagoon

Pools who will make your dream come to

life before the warmer weather arrives.

“Now is an ideal time to organise the

install of your pool and gives plenty of

time for finishing work and landscaping

ready for the summer days. If you’re

wanting your pool completed for summer

it’s best to get things in the system now,”

says Julie Hastings who owns Lagoon

Pools with husband Warren.

Lagoon Pools installs pools in sizes

to suit both large and small sections,

ranging from five metres to 12 metres in

length with a variety of widths, colours

and shapes. There really is a pool for any

shaped site.

Lagoon Pools supplies 100% composite

fibreglass pools and, with patented

innovations, every swimming pool is

supported by their lifetime structural

warranty and a lifetime osmosis warranty.

Additional features including pool

lighting, fountains and spa jets etc which

enhance the pool area transforming it into

an extended living space where family and

friends can relax in the outdoors, Julie

says.

It takes around five days to install a pool

and the finishing touches can take from

four to eight weeks depending upon the

design. Not only does Lagoon Pools install

the pool, they can offer the complete

package including paving, decking,

landscaping, fencing etc.

“We are really excited this year to help

add some joy into many households

with a great pool choice helping to create

the ideal family gathering spot while

holidaying at home this year.”

Turning a dream into reality

The opportunity to work from home

may have seemed like a dream but the

actual reality that was forced upon us

due to Covid 19 will leave some looking

forward to being back in the office and

some looking at it as a long term option.

Firstly set up your “home office” space,

ideally with a door you can shut with

good air circulation and that is well lit.

Place your desk near windows or by the

balcony so you get enough natural light. A

good view from this spot can be the best

source of inspiration. Make sure that your

work area is also within close proximity

to power outlets so that you can easily

charge gadgets like your laptops, tables

and smartphones.

If you don’t have a separate room get

creative by separating your office with

a low bookcase or room divider or by

making a sign.

Choose the right desk at the right

height. When you are on your computer,

your eyes should be level with the top of

the screen. Your office chair should be an

investment as you will spend many hours

sitting in it and being comfortable will

help you get through the day – and you

don’t want to have a sore back. Ideally it

should be at a height where you can touch

the ground.

If you have the luxury of space, add in a

comfortable accent chair or couch giving

you a separate place to read rather than

having to sit at your desk all the time.

Being organised will help you focus on

work when there are other distractions

around and also add a senses of calm.

Storage does not have to be an ugly filing

cabinet but could include shelving with

brightly coloured folders and drawers

to hide away all the stationery. Adding

a plant can make a huge difference or

think about including some visual aspects

for you to enjoy, for example, a special

artwork.

The most important thing is to make

your office space somewhere you want to

be. If it is cold, dark or uninspiring you

will be less likely to enjoy working from

home.

Mercedes joins electric revolution

DON’T PUT ME down as a nonbeliever,

but I have always been a

little sceptical that burning fossil

fuel is the cause of all our climate

change and global warming

issues.

But the recent coronavirus alert

levels 3 and 4 lockdown indicated

that without so many cars on the

road, air quality improved, and

pollution, which is claimed to

affect climate change, was lower.

I’ll take that on the chin and

going forward I’ll be more aware

of how burning oil products

seemingly affects our everyday life.

I guess that’s where electricity

comes in, cars with motors as

opposed to engines have become

the vehicles of choice for those

who vehemently believe electric

vehicles are the way of the future.

EVs aren’t new but they are

resurgent at the moment, and you

can buy anything from a Nissan

Leaf to a Tesla; in-between there

are a myriad of other options

and one which clearly sits in the

luxury car class is the Mercedes-

Benz EQC 400, also branded as a

sport utility vehicle.

It’s no surprise that Mercedes-

Benz is marketing its first EV

down under, it’s only a matter

of time before more luxury

car brands ply their electric

technology globally.

However, a big surprise is the

EQC 400’s price tag. At $142,900

it’s not cheap, but when you think

a few years ago a new Nissan Leaf

or Mitsubishi iMieV was around

half that price, and today’s fully

electric Kia Niro and Hyundai

Kona both sit around $70k,

the EQC 400 seems like a real

bargain.

I think it is, if you take into

account what you get in terms

of luxury, specification and

technology, it is an absolute

champion financially.

The EQC 400 is all electric,

there’s no hybrid technology

here, it is powered by two electric

motors, one up front and one in

the rear obviously creating drive

to all four corners.

Pumping out 300kW and

a massive 760Nm of torque,

power is developed from zero

revolutions, the instant you

depress the accelerator full power

is available; consequently, the

EQC 400 is quick, it will launch

to 100km/h from a standstill

in 5.1sec, and to make a quick

highway overtake it will blast

from 80 to 120km/h in 4.5sec.

Of course, that’s not how we

drive on an everyday basis but

it’s nice to know if you need the

energy it is there on tap. That’s

some of the appeal of electric,

there is a vibrancy you don’t

get with internal combustion

engines, unless you are buying a

vehicle with an incredibly high

performance engine.

Mercedes-Benz wouldn’t have

built a fully electric vehicle had

it not been able to provide the

performance and luxury akin to

what the brand represents, and

the EQC certainly delivers in

those areas.

It also has to be user-friendly,

just like the raft of EVs that are

plying our market it’s a simple

procedure to plug in at home or

any of the charge stations that are

being rolled out nationwide. And

there are many more planned

for the Selwyn district, notably

at Arthur’s Pass, Springfield,

Dunsandel and Leeston.

It must be remembered that

if you live in an old home like I

do, you would need to have an

electrician guide you as to the

safety of wiring and, of course,

extension cables are a no-no.

On the road the EQC drives

like any normal SUV, and the

way you drive is no different to

any other Mercedes-Benz SUV.

The controls and instruments are

pretty much the same. There are

even several drive modes that

you choose, from economical

to sport. I only tried sport for

a short burst and came to the

MERCEDES-BENZ EQC 400: The company’s first fully electric vehicle is now available in the New

Zealand market.

realisation you don’t really need

that mode, sure it delivers a vivid

response but even in standard

mode there is an underlying feel

of power.

The downside of using the

wonderful burst of energy is the

rapid depletion of battery energy.

Mercedes-Benz rate the EQC

400 as having a 430km range,

that would be under the most

favourable operating conditions.

When I picked the test car up it

was registering a range of 280km.

With my style of driving it

quickly dropped to 180km even

though I hadn’t driven 100km.

You need to be mindful that

stop-start driving and exploring

acceleration will quickly deplete

the batteries of their energy.

Also, I found it frustrating

that even when sitting at a

standstill in cold temperatures

the range drops by about 10km in

24 hours.

In terms of cost to replenish

battery supply there are

complicated mathematical

equations to consider, everything

from service provider to night

and day rates, but a rough figure

of around $10 to fully charge

from zero per cent is a guideline.

And the length of time you

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

EQC 400, $142,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4761mm; width,

1884mm; height,

1623mm

• Configuration – Two

electric motors, fourwheel-drive,

300kW,

760Nm, automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 5.1sec

need to charge also varies on the

supply and whether you want to

completely top up or maintain a

mid-level of supply.

Not only does the EQC

400 have the latest generation

mechanical and electronic

technology, it is also the

quintessential SUV for today’s

busy lifestyle. It has space and

functionality that will appeal

to the modern family, and it is

loaded with all the gadgetry that

will satisfy an owner for decades.

It is also a darn nice thing to

drive, its handling combines

well with power delivery. I took

the test car on a flat inland route

which only presented a few tricky

corners.

Considering at almost

2.5-tonne the EQC 400 tips the

scales quite tubby, it has direct

turn-in with beautiful steering

feedback delivered from huge

21in sport specification Michelin

tyres.

Body control is organised

and balanced, while comfort

levels are high. It also must be

mentioned that sound is almost

non-existent.

Sure with the absence of engine

noise there is a heightened

awareness of tyre sound and

wind gushes around the mirrors,

but it’s fair to say the EQC 400

is an enjoyable drive, and those

who do go down that road,

so to speak, will reap many

benefits along with knowing

they are doing their bit for the

environment.

As for me, I need to get over

range anxiety, I was very mindful

of the distance I travelled,

knowing that at some point I’d

need to find a charger. That’s

a matter of reconfiguring the

way my mind is mapped and

adjusting to that.

I guess with the way my

finances are, and my age, owning

an EV will probably never be a

reality anyway.

New showhome village at

Faringdon

Wallingford Villas, Wallingford Crescent.

Faringdon’s latest showhome village

recently celebrated its opening, at The

Borough in Rolleston, where most of the

17 planned showhomes are already open.

Diversity is a key aspect of this

showhome village, with respective

building companies adding their own flare

through design, architectural elements or

features like lighting, interior colours and

siting of the house on its land.

“The approach taken by each building

company is unique with no two homes

the same; an approach we like to

promote,” says Adam Robertson, Business

Development Manager for Hughes

Developments.

A showhome to view the Faringdon

Villas has been opened at the Wallingford

Villas development. The single storey,

3-bedroom villas have open plan living,

one bathroom and a single internal-access

garage. Two types of villa are available

with a common theme blending them

together while they are differentiated

with features such as roof pitch, style

and colour schemes. These high quality

‘spec’ houses come fully landscaped

on approximately 300sqm freehold

titles. Adam says these villas sell from

$416,250, and have been attracting

considerable interest. The showhome is

open from 11.15-11.45am every Sunday

at Wallingford Crescent (off Lemonwood

Drive), or by appointment.

With over 1,800 sections sold since

the beginning of Faringdon, it is now a

place 5,000 Rolleston residents call home.

Thirteen more residents move there each

Faringdon

sales office.

week and 20 reserves and parks have been

created there.

Building companies represented in the

new showhome village include: Clark

Bros Construction, Faye Homes, G J

Gardner Homes, Golden Homes, Homes

by Parklane, JAW Construction, Jennian

Homes, Milestone Homes, Peter Ray

Homes, R&B Builders, Signature Homes,

Stonewood Homes, Trident Homes and

Whitehouse Builders.

You will find Faringdon’s latest

showhome village in Lanner Drive

(off Springston Rolleston Road) and

Thornborough Drive. Most showhomes

and the Faringdon sales office are open

Saturdays and Sundays, from 12noon until

4pm. Some of the showhomes are also

open at certain times during the week,

and there is the opportunity to view by

appointment.

For more information or assistance

in choosing a suitable section for your

needs, call Adam Robertson on 0800
