Invisible road sparks safety

concerns for nearby resident

• By Devon Bolger

IMPROVEMENTS will be

made to signage on the Weedons

overbridge near the Southern

Motorway due to health and safety

concerns.

It comes after Weedons resident

Gary Doyle made a complaint to

the contractors, Downer and Mc-

Connell Dowell, about the issue.

He said if you are travelling

down the Weedons Rd overbridge

toward Lincoln, there is a roundabout

sign that shows a road going

straight, and one to the right.

What the sign does not show is

a section of Weedons Rd, where

Doyle lives, that connects to the left

of the roundabout.

“Anyone coming down to the

roundabout is not expecting to

have someone slowing right down,

virtually to a stop, to make a very

hard left-hand turn to get onto that

road.’’

Doyle also said if traffic is coming

around the roundabout from the

other direction, drivers are expecting

it to go straight ahead, but instead it

cuts right across in front of them.

“My wife and I have nearly been

T-boned by other vehicles.

“It is a real health and safety issue

in my opinion.”

NZTA figures show there have

been no crashes at the roundabout

since it was completed last year.

DANGER: Gary Doyle says people do not know to watch for traffic on the section of Weedons Rd he lives on because

it is not included in a sign on the overbridge.

SOME PEOPLE will steal

anything they can get their

hands on.

In recent months the

district has seen a spate of

thefts from building sites in

which whiteware has been the

main target.

Today (page 3) we report

on a crime wave in the

Springfield, Sheffield and

Darfield areas where farm

gates and fencing are being

stolen.

Police initially thought

it might be drug growers

stealing to protect their crops

from stock. That theory hasn’t

grown any legs in terms of

evidence or intelligence.

So it’s possibly being stolen

to be used on other rural

properties in the district, or

elsewhere.

But I wouldn’t want to be

the receiver of the gate if the

owner happens to chance

upon it.

Thieves target

farm gates and fencing

• By Devon Bolger

FARM GATES and fencing

have become the latest target for

thieves across the district.

Senior

Harker said

there have

20-30 incidents

of gates and

the last few weeks.

This includes seven thefts over

the weekend.

Elizabeth Emery is the

stakeholder liaison manager of

the Downer and McConnell

Dowell joint venture team.

She said: “The detailed design

went through a safety audit process,

undertaken by a team of independent

road safety experts, at the

gates stolen on Saturday night.

“It just p***** me off that

somebody has come onto my

property and taken my stuff.

We didn’t think they would be

targeted,” he said.

Ferguson said, fortunately,

none of his stock got out of their

detailed design stage of the project

and was considered to be safe.

“A further ‘safety audit’ will

be undertaken on completion

of construction to ensure an acceptable

road safety standard has

been achieved.”

Emery said they have

been asked by a resident to

about $150 each to replace.

“Possibly somebody might be

Police are not sure if the gates

of the district.

“The gates can be quite big

so the offenders are going to

need some sort of ute or quite

a big trailer to transport

them.

“It is quite alarming. If the

VEGETATION FIRE

Fire crews were called to a

vegetation fire in the middle

of a paddock in Rolleston last

Wednesday morning. Firefighters

attended the incident on

Robinsons Rd at about 1.30am.

A Fire and Emergency NZ

received reports of bushes on fire.

“When we arrived we found an

unattended vegetation fire and we

extinguished it with no issues. It

was in the middle of a paddock

but it was unattended so we put

it out.” The spokeswoman said

the fire is not being treated as

suspicious.

Terminal illness mixed with

• By Devon Bolger

STUART Armstrong has a

terminal illness and when

he gets close to the time,

he wants to choose how he

dies.

That is one of the reasons

the Lincoln resident is running

for Act in the general

election in September.

Act is campaigning on

the legalisation of euthanasia.

“Like many in my

position, I do not want to

die reliant on an ever-increasing

dose of morphine,

slowly but inexorably

drawing me further from

consciousness and closer

to death.

“I wish for death, if I’m

able, on the back of my

horse Julia with my wife,

family and friends around

me for support. I will die

as I have lived, with spirit,

energy and passion.”

The 60-year-old was

diagnosed with terminal

prostate cancer six years

ago.

“I have what they call

a life-limiting prognosis.

Some people live one or

two years, I asked the oncologist

what the top end is

for me and he said he’s had

one patient make 10 years

so I said I would like to be

the second.

politics

“I am at six years post-chemo

and post-surgery. That is a

good, decent stretch and I am

obviously hoping for another few

years yet.”

One of Armstrong’s key campaign

points is the End of Life

Choice Bill.

He believes people should have

the option to choose a death that

reflects their life and beliefs.

“I was the committee chairman

for Act in Ilam back in 1996 so

I have always been interested in

politics but I have waxed and

waned a little on the interest

until David Seymour’s Bill came

along.”

When asked if he thinks he has

a chance of winning in Selwyn,

Armstrong said: “I don’t. I am

campaigning for the party vote

for Act, it’s as simple as that.

“We would support an MMP

strategic vote for Selwyn where

the voters may wish to consider

giving their electorate vote to

National candidate Nicola Grigg

and their party vote to Act.”

Armstrong is an energetic,

sporting man who has lived an

active life.

He has a wife, Rebecca, and two

adult children, Rachel, 31, and

Sean, 29.

He played table tennis up until

last year and has represented New

Zealand as a junior, senior and

veteran.

Labour candidate has

hard-working values

• By Devon Bolger

LABOUR’S candidate Reuben

Davidson may not live in the

district but he is still confident

voters will support him.

“I can see in Selwyn, there is a

large group of people who think

they could be better served and

so that is what motivated me to

put my hand up and accept that

challenge,” he said.

“People who have traditionally

voted for National can really

see that the plan Labour has to

recover and rebuild is going to be

good for Selwyn as well as New

Zealand.”

The 42-year-old lives in

Lyttelton and is on the Banks

Peninsula Community Board.

At the last election in 2017,

Labour’s Tony Condon received

20.77 per cent of the votes against

Amy Adams 65.86 per cent.

Davidson said he would move

to the district if he happened to

win the seat or became a Labour

list MP. He is currently ranked

67th on the list.

Davidson works as a series

producer at Whitebait Media

where he has been for 15 years.

Recently he created the

television show Fanimalsand he

helped produce What Now for

seven years.

Davidson said his time with

the community board proved his

passion for politics.

“I have loved it so far. The

work I have done through my

life and also really recently at

a community level has really

motivated me to get more

involved at a political level.”

He said a key value for him is

hard work.

“I got my first job by the time

I was 14, working at Espresso

124 on the terrace. I lived within

walking distance of school but I’d

bus into the city to work starting

at about 6.30am and then bus

back for school.”

18-year-old’s bid

to be a Greens MP

• By Devon Bolger

ABE O’DONNELL might only

be 18 but that is not stopping

him making a bid to help run

New Zealand.

O’Donnell, who lives in

Prebbleton, is the Greens

candidate for the Selwyn

electorate.

Recovering from anorexia

inspired him to get into politics.

“Early last year, I had an

eating disorder. Recovering from

this was what opened me up to

the absurd number of problems

in the world which are caused

by our food choices,” O’Donnell

said.

“Food-related chronic diseases

are now the leading cause

of premature death and the

Government is doing nothing

about mitigating this.”

He said one of the key issues

in the district is needed changes

in food production in the

agricultural sector.

“It is the role of the

Government to support a

transition towards centreing

our agricultural sector around

regenerative methods of plant

production.”

O’Donnell is a Canterbury

University student studying

towards a Bachelor of Law and

a Bachelor of Arts, majoring

in political science and

international relations, minoring

in nutrition.

His main goal is to be a

politician. But if that fails he

intends to become a lawyer.

O’Donnell is realistic that he

has little chance of upstaging

National and winning the seat

for the Greens.

He said his role is about

promoting Greens to increase

the party vote in the district.

He grew up in Ashburton and

attended Christchurch Boys’

High School in 2017. He moved

Health concerns close pool

• By Devon Bolger

HEALTH AND safety concerns

have forced the closure of the

Halkett Pool.

The pool will be closed for the

summer season this year and

the plug could be pulled permanently.

In a report to the district council,

group manager community

services and facilities Denise

Kidd said the closure is due to

health and safety risks.

The pool,

which is managed

by the

Halkett Community

Centre

committee,

was checked by

district council

Denise Kidd

staff in January

and was found

to have had 11 days in a row of

non-compliant water readings.

This included zero chlorine

residue in the pool and the circulation

and filtration not running.

This resulted in cloudy water to

the point the bottom of the pool

could not be seen, Kidd said.

The Halkett Pool committee

was not able to respond to questions

from the Selwyn Times

yesterday.

Halkett resident Alastair Nicol

said it would be a shame to lose

the pool which is an asset to the

POOL’S CLOSED: The Halkett Pool has been closed for the upcoming summer season due

to health and safety concerns and permanent closure will be consulted on.

community.

“I think the proposal to close

the pool is premature. It’s a lovely

facility and is associated with the

playground and the big extensive

area for kids to run around.

“In saying that, I do think

there needs to be some improvement

in how the pool is managed,”

he said.

Kidd said in spite of the district

attempting to engage and

educate the committee responsible

for managing the pool, it has

been unsuccessful.

“Unfortunately, the Halkett

Pool committee has demonstrated

little or no attempt to

increase health and safety or

water quality practices over the

last two seasons.

“The current committee

management model is not effective

and council has insufficient

budget to lifeguard and operate

this pool to achieve safe operation.”

Last year, the district council

decided it would be best for pool

committee members to attend

and complete an Introduction to

Pool Operations course.

The Halkett committee was

asked to attend at no cost but no

members attended, Kidd said.

District councillors

unanimously voted to close the

pool temporarily at a meeting

last week and permanent closure

will be considered as part of the

Long Term Plan.

Site sought

dog park

• By Devon Bolger

THE LINCOLN Wetland and an

extended Lincoln Domain could

be potential spots for a dog park.

The district council is also looking

into one of the new residential

developments being the home of

the park.

The idea was discussed at a

Lincoln Community Committee

meeting.

Said district council group

manager property Douglas

Marshall: “The committee has

approached the council about its

desire for a dog park in Lincoln,

and we have advised them that

the council will give consideration

to the proposal.

“This will most likely be through

the Long Term Plan process.”

Springs Ward district councillor

Grant Miller said there are three

options on the table.

“We are looking at an extension

of the Lincoln Domain for quite a

long time so we are in the process

of trying to acquire more land to

make that happen and as part of

that proposal is we could place a

dog park in there.

“Another option is in the

Lincoln Wetland but the downside

to that is there is some native

wildlife there.’’

Inspiration home

opens in Lincoln

A new inspiration home, which promises to stimulate and inspire,

opens this Saturday at Flemington in Lincoln.

Build7’s latest inspiration home is both inspirational and practical.

From its siting on the land to the many features throughout the home,

viewers will get many ideas for their own new home.

Build7 Christchurch is now seven years old and over that time, owners

Jamie and Francesca Cowan have gained a reputation for transparency,

honesty and reliability.

“We care about our clients. They’re not just a number and we definitely

listen to what they want from their ‘must haves’ through to what they

can afford,” explains Jamie.

Jamie has considerable experience in the industry with over twenty

years as a builder, specialising in residential work – new homes and

renovations – and some light commercial work.

Jamie and his project team, which includes a Project Manager and

Quantity Surveyor take a close interest in each and every build they do.

They are involved from first contact with clients through to completion

of their new home. He and his team help them through the build

process, suggesting where they might go to choose features and fittings

while not pushing specific standard specifications or products.

“We have a really good team, from my sales and design people through

to those who work on site,” advises Tony Hutchison, Build7’s Sales

Manager for Selwyn and Canterbury.

He emphasises the importance of the design process and taking time

to learn why clients are building, as well as what they need and want in

their future home.

“We start with a blank bit of paper with our team taking clients through

every step of the design, decision-making and build,” says Tony.

Clients work with an interior designer who guides them through the

stages of selecting colours, fittings and fixtures for their new home,

from the hardware to the colours, tiles and carpet on the floor.

“It’s the client’s house. They should be free to pick what they want and

have a real sense of ownership, having more control over the home that

is built for them,” adds Tony.

Jamie emphasises that clients can choose whatever they want with price

range options also presented so they have a clear understanding of the

items which fit within their budget.

“Building a home is a big investment. Every square metre costs money

so we want every part of the home to work for our clients. I personally

care about my clients and take a lot of responsibility on board when

they sign up with us. I feel a commitment to delivering a quality home

incorporating the features they desire,” says Jamie.

Build7 Christchurch is a local Lincoln-based building company,

working across the Canterbury region. You will find their new

inspiration home at 29 Craig Thompson Drive at Flemington in

Lincoln.

To learn more, phone Tony on 027 858 8489 or email

Hunting for trouble – poaching and the police

Area response manager

Senior Sergeant Dean

Harker talks about police

activity in the district

With food prices soaring,

poaching could become an

attractive alternative to shopping

at the supermarket.

Police have wide legislative

powers available to counter this

type of offending. A range of

powers are found in the Wild

Animal Control Act 1977 which

controls the spread of harmful

wild animals and, as part of this,

legislates against illegal hunting.

Under the Act it is an offence

to hunt, kill or possess wild

animals without the express

authority of the owner or

occupier of the relevant land.

The maximum fine is up

to $100,000 plus two years

imprisonment.

Charges can also be brought

under the Forest and Rural fire

Regulations 2005 for being in an

exotic forest without the required

permit. An exotic forest is

defined as one made up solely or

mainly of non-indigenous trees.

Offenders thinking about

committing crime in our area

should also be warned that any

hunting-related items including

firearms, knives, dogs, GPS units

and vehicles may be seized and

forfeited.

Poaching can be the catalyst

for other crimes, such as

damaging machinery and the

theft of fuel.

Police will also be on alert at

any attempts to steal stock.

Preventing crime

Security options for

farmers to consider include

installing CCTV or wireless alert

system which can activate an

Dean Harker

Selwyn Police

alarm in your house to alert

you that someone is in your

shed by alarm or light

sensors.

These devices are highly

effective and can even work

in areas across some distance,

where there is no cell coverage.

There are also satellite GPS

devices available that can be

installed covertly on items

such as quad bikes and other

machinery which can be tracked

if they get stolen. Satellite devices

also do not require cell coverage

to track.

Longer Monday hours at station

THE ROLLESTON Police

station will now be open until

8pm on Mondays to make it

easier for those who work to

visit the station.

The station usually closes to

the public at 4pm. The later

hours will come into affect

from Monday.

It is just so we can meet

the needs of the public

because some people can’t

get in before we close during

the week so we will just have

someone there at the front

desk for them.

The move follows the

decision to have the police

station staffed 24/7 during the

Covid-19 lockdown period.

The station is no longer

staffed full-time but there is

still 24/7 police coverage in the

district.

Crime prevention signage

Two crime prevention signs are

available to help deter unlawful

hunters and trespassers.

Both signs can be purchased

through Neighbourhood Support

(www.neighbourhoodsupport.

co.nz/post/new-rural-crimeprevention-signs-proving-

popular) as part of a joint

initiative with police.

Sign 1 - Hunters be Aware

Sign 2 - Camera Operating

Both signs are printed on 4mm

white aluminium composite

material with a UV resistant

anti-graffiti laminate. Sign size

is A3 – 297mm x 420mm. The

estimated lifespan for the signs

is 15 years. Both come with six

holes for easy installation.

Price – $16.30 excluding GST.

Theft of fences and gates

Rural Selwyn is noting a large

increase in the theft of farm gates

and electric fencing over the last

few weeks.

Here is some crime prevention

advice farmers can apply:

1. Invert the top hinge (so

it is downwards facing) of all

roadside boundary gates, so

that they cannot be lifted off the

strainer posts and hinge bolt.

2. Weld over the base of the

hinge and hinge bolt and nut.

3. Weld your farm name on

the top frame of the gate in an

obvious place.

4. Underneath and at the

bottom hinge end of the steelframed

gate, weld in your driver

licence number into the frame,

which will aid in identification of

your gate if it is stolen.

5. Chain and padlock your

roadside boundary gates.

Ex-Bandidos boss reveals why

he turned his back on crime

THE FORMER president of

the New Zealand chapter of the

Bandidos gang has spoken up

about his decision to leave his

life of crime last year in a series

of videos where he also urges

teenagers to stay away from gangs.

Hamish Hiroki, who lived in

Lincoln, left the gang last year and

has taken to YouTube to explain

the reasons behind the departure.

He hopes his videos will inspire

teenagers to steer clear of gangs.

“I know there’s a lot of young

followers that are joining clubs

now and I think they feel the

need to join clubs because everyone

else is doing it,” he said in a

video from May.

He said he joined the gang originally

because he was seeking “a

sense of brotherhood and a sense

of belonging to something”.

He said he left after falling into

a negative head space and realising

he did not want his son to

following in his footsteps.

Hiroki initially joined the Bandidos

gang when he’d just moved

to Christchurch, where he didn’t

know many people.

“I wanted to join it since I was

a young fella, because they were

but plain and simple, I didn’t

did, he said.

He added that he “lost himself

along the way”, just following

what others were doing.

He climbed up the ranks and

eventually became the president

of the NZ chapter of the gang.

He said his first moment of

clarity was when he visited his

AFTER YEARS of fundraising,

the Sheffield Fire Brigade has

purchased a smoke chaser.

The vehicle is a 2020 Mitsubishi

Triton 4x4 and it has a 300-litre

spray unit fitted to battle fires.

Chief fire officer Neville Croy

said: “This will enable us to get

to fires where it is not practicable

to take a large fire engine such as

river beds and muddy farm tracks.

“It will also enable us to respond

quicker to non-fire related incidents

such as medical calls and

motor vehicle accidents where

time is an important factor.”

Croy said they have also

been supplied with 19 new

helmet torches which were

donated by Peter Morrison and

Sarah Walters responds

to Selwyn Times’ articles

on Fulton Hogan’s appeal

against the conditions

of its new quarry near

Weedons

The photo on the front page

of the July 15 issue should be a

wake-up call for everyone across

the district.

That such a large quarry could

be established so close to residential

and commercial areas is

astounding – and yet that is what

the rules allow.

I doubt anyone involved in any

part of the application process

could truly deny that it will have

a negative impact on anyone

living, working or even passing

through the area.

While there are likely many

people involved in the process

who would prefer not to have a

quarry located there, the conditions

that allow consent to be

given were put in place many

years ago, with the acceptance

of our loose district and regional

planning rules.

All of us are guilty, because

we have allowed the mantra that

economic growth and infrastructure

are more important than

people and that building roads is

more important than less intrusive

transport options to prevail.

I truly feel for the people

caught on the wrong side of these

circumstances but also recognise

the challenges of needing to

follow the rules regardless of the

injustice of those rules.

I feel helpless in this circumstance,

but we are not helpless

provision in the Rolleston area

YOU BRING THE DREAM,

WE'LL BRING THE

There is ongoing and

projected growth in the

Rolleston area, meaning

that additional secondary

provision will likely be

required by 2025. A new

primary school in East

Rolleston located at a site on

Ed Hillary Drive is projected

to open in term 1, 2022.

The existing four state primary

schools (Clearview Primary,

Lemonwood Grove School,

Rolleston School and West

Rolleston Primary School) are

about to start consultation on

amendments to their current

enrolment scheme boundaries.

This will minimise the risk of

overcrowding at each school, as

well as determining the enrolment

scheme boundaries for the new

school in East Rolleston when it

opens in 2022.

The options for additional

secondary provision are an

additional Year 9 – 13 secondary

school with its own enrolment

scheme home zone, and the

Rolleston College home zone

would be adjusted to allow for

this. Alternatively, the additional

secondary provision could be

a second campus of Rolleston

College that could be configured in

a number of different ways.

zoning process, the detailed

options for additional secondary

provision and an online survey to

students and their families come

from China, India, Jordan, Sri

Uganda, Indonesia, Myanmar,

Malawi, Sudan, Papua New

Philippines.

“This was an excellent opportunity

for us to learn about

different cultures; students also

felt they are so welcome in New

Zealand,” Gooneratne said.

“The students are studying at

different faculties of the university

and each gave a two-minute

talk about their country, culture

and highlights of their research.

This allowed club members to

become aware of some of the

current research projects conducted

The Rotary Club of Lincoln

Rove beetles are

important scavengers

EVER HEARD of the devil’s

coach horse? It’s not actually

a horse at all – it belongs to

a family of beetles called

Staphylinidae or rove beetles.

There are at least 42,000

rove beetle species worldwide

and over 1020 species in New

Zealand. Rove beetles range in

size from 2mm to over 30mm but

most are easily characterised by

their truncated, hard forewing

which protect its membranous

wings beneath.

Most rove beetles are black in

colour and nocturnal, although

some smaller species are known

to fly during the day.

Rove beetles are found in a

range of organic matter including

compost, leaf litter, mushrooms,

under bark, and in soil.

Larger species are known to

be generalist predators, preying

on insect eggs or larvae, pupae,

springtails, mites and even dead

animals.

Other smaller rove beetle

species feed on fungi, algae, dung

and fermenting fruits.

The species shown is Oxytelus

sculptus, an exotic species 5-7mm

long and was found in my

compost bin.

I was born in the deep south, Tuatapere, gateway to Fiordland.

I grew up among some stunning scenery but it wasn’t really until I

travelled the world that I saw just how special it was.

I am a Christchurch based, self-taught artist painting semi-abstract

landscapes that are earthy and textural. My paintings are inspired

by New Zealand landscape, particularly Central Otago, Mackenzie

Country and Canterbury.

My works are descriptive of landforms shaped by both natural

forces and man. Weathering, erosion and human activity lead to an

ever-changing terrain.

There is often a touch of both flora and water in my paintings that

allude to the idea of the land sustaining life.

Flowing Through

The paintings have layers of colour and texture through

which I chisel, scrape, eliminate, add back and interact

with the painting to reveal the essence of a landscape.

I hope painting our NZ landscape may encourage the

viewer to recognise the beauty of the land and to feel

responsibility for looking after it.

Key intersection

upgrade complete

Before

The Tennyson Street and Lowes Road intersection in Rolleston will reopen this week following a

major upgrade and installation of traffic lights.

The traffic lights and additional traffic and cycle lanes have been added during the upgrade, along with

new adjoining footpath and cycleway connections, new streetlights, and drainage improvements.

The intersection upgrade was needed to meet the demand from extra traffic entering and exiting

Rolleston via the State Highway 1/Weedons Road Interchange and along Tennyson Street.

Council Transportation Asset Manager Andrew Mazey says the upgraded intersection is a critical

part of a long-running series of projects to fully upgrade Lowes Road to prepare for this.

The intersection is also the main connection between the growing residential areas in the southern

part of Rolleston and the town centre and 11,000 vehicles per day travel across the Lowes Road

intersection to and from Tennyson Street.

The upgrade will improve links between the town centre and Foster Park, Selwyn Aquatic Centre,

schools and new residential areas to the south of Rolleston, Mr Mazey says.

It will also provide more safety for pedestrians and cyclists, particularly the large and growing

number of Rolleston School students who cycle to and from school through the intersection.

The Council is grateful for the road users’ patience with the road closures and diversions required

to do this major work safely and effectively, he says.

Minor landscaping and tidy up work around the intersection will be completed over the next

few weeks.

E-Scooters to stay in Selwyn

Selwyn has become the first New Zealand location outside a major

urban centre to grant e-scooter licences.

The Council has issued an initial one-year licence to e-scooter

operators Lava and Lime following a successful six-month trial that

saw people taking around 3,800 rides a month pre-lockdown.

Lava and Lime will have a total of 220 scooters operating in

Rolleston, Lincoln and Prebbleton, and on cycleways between the

towns. The companies will pay an annual licence fee of $72.79 a

year per scooter.

With people taking 22,677 rides on scooters by mid-July, Mayor

Sam Broughton says the scooters are another sign of Selwyn as a

forward-looking district that embraces new ideas.

“It’s great to see the scooters have been used by the community as

an alternative to hopping in a car. I’m delighted that we now have

a permanent environmentally friendly and convenient option for

getting around our towns. ”

The Council granted a six-month trial to the companies to operate

a total of 300 scooters, starting in mid-December last year. The

trial was due to end in June, but was extended to the end of July

because of the Level 4 lockdown period.

For the trial to mid-July people were using the scooters at an

average of over 3,800 trips a month. There were no accidents or

significant injuries reported over that time.

During the trial, there was one substantiated complaint of an

e-scooter left on the road. The scooter in the road was rapidly

removed and the company apologised.

There were two complaints of scooters blocking footpaths and

Council staff found both scooters were correctly parked. Council

also received 11 complaints from people who said they did not like

the scooters.

The Councillors noted that the companies had been professional

and accommodating of Council requests and have endeavoured to

provide a quality service for e-scooter users within the district.

Aquatic Centre sees millions of visits

over seven years

The Selwyn Aquatic Centre just gets more popular with age as it celebrates its seventh birthday.

More than 2.2 million people have visited the Aquatic Centre since it opened in June 2013. The number of

people using the centre is growing each year, rising from 258,000 in its first year to 403,088 in the 2018/19

financial year. The centre was on track to top that number again this year before COVID-19 intervened.

Its popularity was proved by a rapid resurgence in visitor numbers after lockdown, with numbers higher

than the same time last year and over 1000 people a day coming through during the school holidays.

The swim school has also seen steady growth, from 1,100 children taking lessons each term when the

centre opened to around 2,200 enrolled each term for the past two years. Over 5,800 people a year also

take part in the centre’s aqua fitness classes.

Over the years the centre has hosted Swim Canterbury swim meets, provided space for scuba diving

clubs, sports clubs and teams, physiotherapists and their clients, Burwood Hospital patients, disability

groups and regularly hosts social events.

At the age of 22 and 25, Cam Clark and Kristina Squires-Ward saw an opportunity to give travelers an

experience to remember.

After travelling around the world and working in Canada, they came home to start their own business

replacing the old Springfield café.

The pair wanted to give the Springfield community something fresh and different to look forward to,

starting with a complete renovation of the place.

“We found that the business that was here before was more convenience-based, grab and go type

thing. Our offering is more of a sit down and spend half an hour.”

Since they opened in January, Cam and Kristina say they have received amazing support from the

community and attracted lots of new customers.

“It’s going really well. We were a bit concerned with the tourism not being around, because we do cater

for tourists mostly, but the local support has been awesome. When we first opened they put an article

in the Malvern News and lots of people from different townships came out to congratulate us and have

a coffee and support us, which was so nice.”

For Cam it was a little daunting living in the country and working in

hospitality for the first time, but thankfully Kristina had experience in both.

“My family is from Springfield, so it was nice and close to my old home, I

used to actually work here when I was a kid, so it’s kind of gone full circle,”

Kristina says.

“I wouldn’t want to have Taste of Kiwi anywhere else,” Cam says.

Offering great coffee, fish and chips, homemade soup, classic kiwi pies and

gifts and plenty of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options, they aim to

make Taste of Kiwi the place to stop on your journey through to Arthur’s Pass.

DARFIELD EMERGED as the

only likely threat to Coleman

Shield pace setters Southbridge

and Waihora on Saturday.

Darfield hammered Prebbleton

34-8 in another lopsided division

1 round. Southbridge accounted

for a struggling Lincoln 48-17,

Springston ran over Rolleston

45-5 and as expected Waihora

thumped Hornby 52-7.

The round sees Southbridge

lonely at the top of the table with

Southbridge keeps

hold of top spot

29 points, followed by Darfield

(21), Waihora (20), West Melton

(20), Prebbleton (19), Springston

(6), Lincoln (6), Hornby (0).

Southbridge, Waihora and

Darfield’s points differentials are

the tell tale sign. The three sides

have amassed a combined 680

points for and conceded only 139.

This weekend: Prebbleton v

Southbridge, Waihora v West

More than ever, we now require our homes to

be a sanctuary - a primate haven where the cares

and pressures of the world do not intrude. The

home should be an enveloping, warm and creative

environment where family members of all ages feel

relaxed and safe.

The longer you live in your home, the more likely

you are to feel in sync with it.

As the seasons come and go you’ll have got to

know which rooms are sunny and which ones need

brightening.

You’ll have noted areas prone to damp. You’ll have

observed where different family members like to

spend their time and why.

You might have come to the conclusion that major

changes are required to make your home as healthy

as possible, or perhaps you’ve concluded that a few

simple tweaks will do the trick.

MATERIALS

The ‘make-do-and-mend’ culture that has grown

during the recession places emphasis on the

satisfaction that can be found in incorporating

natural materials with vintage items. Pieces

of driftwood, collections of shells, that lovely

moss-covered garden bench or a ‘cleverly’ revived

piece of furniture all have their place in the healthy

home and its surroundings. This trend steers away

from plastics and synthetic materials.

HEATING AND VENTILATION

A home needs to be cool in summer, with plenty of

natural ventilation, and warm in winter. Traditional

open fires are being phased out and home owners

are discovering the joys of installing modern wood

burners, using gas for heating or installing a heat

pump. All these options are healthy - technology has

come a long way and most choices will see you saving

money in the long run.

STORAGE

While a minimalist style might be fine for single

people or couples without kids, when the patter of tiny

feet comes along, good storage is going to be vital at

every stage of a child’s

with clutter. The more

clutter the better in

terms of both your

general safety.

There are any number of options available, from

professionally designed cupboards and wardrobes, to

the simple lidded plastic boxes you can buy at chain

Gardening

Attack thatch on your lawn next week

EARLY AUGUST is the time to

attack the thatch on your lawns.

Thatch is caused by several factors,

including grass type, excessive

watering, soil compaction,

high or low soil pH, or overuse of

fertiliser and pesticides.

Remove a core of soil from the

lawn with a trowel or shovel and

measure the depth of the thatch,

which is the layer of dead grass

above the soil line.

A layer that is 1cm to 2.5cm

thick can be removed with a stiff

lawn rake. Deeper layers may

require a power rake.

The best time to de-thatch is

just before the grass begins a

period of active growth, which is

usually early spring.

For lawns with more than 3cm

of thatch, power rakes or vertical

mowers will need to be used and

can be hired.

Mow the lawn a little lower

than usual. If needed, water it to

moisten the soil.

If you use a thatching rake, pull

the blade-like tines across the

lawn, cutting through the thatch.

Work in sections, then remove

the debris.

If you are using a power rake or

vertical mower, adjust the cutters

to slice just through the thatch

layer. Check cutter depth after

the first metre.

Run the machine in parallel

rows over the lawn and then

Control pests and diseases with winter spraying

THE BEST antidote to a pest and

disease-ridden spring garden is

thorough winter spraying.

Nothing toxic is required —

simply give plants a good dowsing

of copper spray, followed a week

later by an application of spraying

oil. Both of these are regarded as

organic.

Repeat three times over the

winter months to kill both overwintering

insect eggs and disease

spores. It’s especially important to

spray fruit trees (including citrus),

roses and other deciduous plants,

as well as any plants badly infested

with insect pests or disease

LAYERS: Thatch is dead grass which sits above the soil

line. It should be removed during the winter before active

spring growth. It is also time to dig over vacant areas.

In fact, you should spray the

Check the undersides of

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Bringing an

ambulance

back to life

Nigel Winter and his brother,

Richard were exploring an old quarry

near their father’s farm when they

found an old ambulance.

It was the early 1970s and Nigel was

barely a teenager. He and Richard

pulled the ambulance out from where

it had been dumped, then loaded it

onto a trailer and took it home. The

vehicle had no motor or wheels but was

otherwise intact.

The 1948 Ford Mercury was

originally the Lyttelton ambulance.

Nigel says he has seen television

footage of the 1951 waterfront strike,

with his ambulance in the foreground.

After its time as an ambulance, it

served a number of uses including

as a mobile mechanic’s van in the

Christchurch area.

Nigel says three Ford Mercury

cab-chassis were imported into New

Zealand where Midland Motor Bodies

built the bodywork from aluminium.

When they found the ambulance, the

body was rust-free and still is.

The ambulance sat around the farm

for another four or so years then

after a motor-cycle crash when Nigel

was off work with a broken leg, he

began tinkering with it. By age 21, the

ambulance had been restored to the

point where it could legally be driven

on the road.

Restoring the vehicle was, however,

spasmodic with the ambulance sitting

in the back of a shed for years at a time.

Five years ago, Nigel decided he

would either finish the restoration

project or dig a big hole and bury the

ambulance. When his youngest son,

Dale who is a car enthusiast, decided

to wash the ambulance one day, it set

in motion the process of completing

its restoration and one year on, the

ambulance is street legal again.

“We put a 400 cubic inch V8 engine

in and the suspension has been done.

It now has modern power steering and

disc brakes,” advises Nigel.

The original colour of the ambulance

was white. When they found the

dumped vehicle it was blue and white.

Nigel has since had the ambulance

painted bright red.

Due to work commitments and

a busy life, Nigel has engaged the

assistance of professionals to complete

the finishing touches. Steve Allan

Customs in Rangiora has sorted the

suspension and taken care of other

work needed to bring the vehicle up to

certification standard. The ambulance

is now being upholstered at Advanced

Upholstery in Racecourse Hill.

Nigel says the rear of the ambulance

will be like a camper van so he and

wife Francie, can head away and park

up by a river for night or two and some

fishing.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Expertise in auto upholstery

If restoring a vehicle or boat, there’s a good

chance some upholstery may be needed,

something which may not be straightforward.

Auto trimming and auto marine upholstery

can be challenging and complex work, especially

when there is no pattern or original coverings for

a guide.

As a qualified auto marine upholsterer with

close to 30 years’ experience in the field, Brian

Stockdale is an expert in complex auto trimming

or auto marine work. After completing his

apprenticeship with Goslin Marine and Auto

Upholstery (where he spent a number of years),

Brian decided to go it alone. Fourteen years

ago, Brian and wife, Sue established Advanced

Upholstery Ltd.

The fully equipped workshop at Advanced

Upholstery, allows them to take care of a wide

range of auto marine and specialist upholstery

work. Whether a boat, motorhome, caravan,

motor vehicle, motorcycle, or treasured piece

of furniture, they can assist. Brian has even

recovered a pool table.

While Brian’s focus is on upholstering, Sue

plays an integral part in the business, looking

after the administration, sales and marketing.

Together they possess considerable knowledge in

the field.

Brian has the skills to tackle all kinds of

specialist upholstery work, made to a customer’s

requirements. This includes constructing the

frames for squabs, or panelling and head lining,

for vintage and classic cars. If you need your

boat upholstered or a road cover for your boat,

Advanced Upholstery can also take care of this.

“Virtually anything which needs a piece of

canvas or vinyl, Brian can make,” says Sue.

Their expertise, quality workmanship and

efficiency explains why Advanced Upholstery Ltd

is recognised for all facets of upholstery work,

and why people send their vehicles to them from

all over the South Island.

“With full restoration work, when the vehicles

arrive they’re virtually all metal. Brian creates the

door panels and head lining, carpets the car then

puts the vehicle back together again, attaching

the door handles, visors and other parts,” explains

Sue.

With no patterns available, the restoration work

is often completed using pictures provided by the

customer, with Brian spending time with each

customer to find out what they are wanting.

Advanced Upholstery completes insurance

work and has a showroom, where there are

samples of leather, vinyl, canvas and other fabrics;

caravan and window squabs; and photos of work

completed.

For advice or to book in auto marine or

specialised upholstery work, call Sue on 03 318

7378, email advancedupholsteryltd@xtra.co.nz,

or call into Advanced Upholstery at Racecourse

Hill, 3967 West Coast Road (just west of

Powered up in fully electric Ioniq

IF THERE was one good thing

to come out of the alert level

three coronavirus lockdown, it

would be that it heightened my

awareness of hybrid technology.

In the interest of public safety,

the local Hyundai dealership

closed its doors early, a couple

of days before lockdown. It was

on one of those days that I was

scheduled to return an Ioniq

plug-in hybrid, that being the

case, I was left with it in my care

for that month.

During that time I used it to

take my wife to work on a daily

basis, she was deemed an essential

worker.

I grew to appreciate that

hybrids have their place and the

Ioniq PHEV made a marked

impression for its economy and

ease of use, it really is much the

normal car.

As its nameplate would suggest,

the Ioniq in this form has a

petrol engine and electric motor

which work together in traditional

hybrid fashion; however, it

also has the benefit of being able

to charge the battery through a

plug-in household electric supply,

or from a charge station such as

those at malls. Really it’s the best

of all worlds for those who feel

they need to do their bit for the

environment.

Or else, you could do away

with the petrol engine in total.

The Hyundai Ioniq is also on

the market as an electric vehicle

only, its sole source of propulsion

is through an electric motor

powered by a 38kWh lithium-ion

polymer battery bank, charged

through plug-in.

This evaluation focuses on the

$66,000 Ioniq EV ($72,000 Elite).

It is there for those who want to

make the total commitment to

get away from burning fossil fuel.

I have to say, I’m not ready for

that challenge, but I’m constantly

hearing EVs are the way of the

future and I’m all too willing to

look at them with an open mind,

and my experience with the

PHEV certainly paved the way, it

provided a good introduction.

Those who do want totally

electric will need to be prepared

to pay for it, it’s $12,000 more expensive

than the PHEV, although

it would be expected that cost

would be recovered over a period

of time, buying electricity is said

to be much cheaper than buying

petrol.

Hyundai claim a $5 cost to recharge

the Ioniq from low charge

to full charge, that’s just a rough

guide, there are many factors

which determine cost – supplier,

night and day rates, length

of charge, the list goes on. You

must also factor in that not all

homes have wiring conducive to

supplying the current needed, a

designated charge point correctly

wired is preferred. Of course,

there are the charge stations

which are being rolled out in

ever-increasing numbers nationwide.

In terms of length of time to

charge, the Ioniq needs over six

hours to charge from empty, that’s

using a designated charge point.

If you are at a fast charge station,

80 per cent capacity can be

reached in about an hour. From a

household supply using a threepin

plug cable, a full top-up will

take up to 17 hours. That being

the case, regular top-ups would

be more productive.

The Ioniq’s power plant is

pretty much the same design as

that which powers its stablemate

Kona – a small SUV. However,

the Ioniq is a small-to-medium

liftback that stands out for high

level of specification and purposeful

design. It is a definite

five-seater and it gets plenty of

features.

Driving the Ioniq needs no

special effort, there are just four

central push buttons which are

self-explanatory, drive, reverse,

neutral and park. From that point

on you just drive as you would in

HYUNDAI IONIQ EV: Plug-in, charge up and get mobile.

a petrol-powered car. The only

notable difference is there is lot

of motor braking associated with

deceleration. I particularly like

that, it means you are less reliant

on the brakes, and it feels reassuring.

Interestingly, the Ioniq also

gets paddle shifters, which are

not so much a way of altering the

gearing, but it’s a way of adding or

reducing drag on the electric motor

to enhance or dull the feeling

of acceleration.

Hyundai claims 100kW and

295Nm power outputs and that’s

feisty enough, I particularly like

the feel of electric energy, there is

a strong feeling of acceleration as

the torque from the electric motor

winds up.

Speed isn’t overly vivid, but

there is a solid pull of motor

power when you ask for it, and

that steady supply is seamless

and constant, providing more

of a sensation of speed than

you would otherwise imagine.

Against the stop watch the Ioniq

will accelerate from a standstill

to 100km/h in 10sec, and will

quickly launch through a highway

overtake (80-120km/h) in

6.6sec. Both these figures provide

peace of mind.

The Ioniq is also rated with a

311km distance between charges.

• Price – Hyundai Ioniq EV,

$65,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4470mm; width, 1820mm;

height, 1460mm

• Configuration – Electric

motor, front-wheeldrive,

100kW, 295Nm,

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10sec

The evaluation car was sitting on

160km range when I picked it up,

and it quickly dropped to 100km

with just a few inner-city commutes

in very cold weather, that

scenario not conducive to batteries

retaining charge.

Nevertheless, once on the highway

at legal open road speed, the

Ioniq is relatively thrifty with its

use of available power.

Providing the grip are beautiful

Michelin tyres (205/50 x 16in)

and they provide accurate corner

turn-in. At about 1500kg the

Ioniq EV isn’t overly burdened by

weight, the latest generation batteries

are as much about weight

saving as they are storing energy,

that being the case the Ioniq feels

quite agile and, of course, it is

nimble with its squat dimensions

– it sits just 4.45m in length.

It’s ability to tackle a quick corner

comfortably comes without

firming of the springs and shocks,

the damper rates afford a wonderful

ride soaking up the bumps

and ruts without in-cabin shock.

My best friend is an EV Nissan

Leaf owner in the United States,

his car is old but it’s still on the

original set of batteries which are

giving him satisfactory distance,

well at least in warm temperatures,

it’s not so flash in the cold

of Virginia.

He often charges free of cost at

some of the several sites near his

home; he tells me it’s not all plain

sailing though, several times he

has had to wait in a queue to

charge, and has been confronted

by others who have said while

his car was on charge: “Move on,

you’ve had long enough.’’

I’m not saying that would happen

in New Zealand, but there

are complications that will arise

until New Zealand’s EV infrastructure

is fully supported. In

the meantime, there are many

other good reasons to go on the

EV journey.

The Ioniq is just one car of

many which is making its mark

in that part of the market. For me,

I’m still leaning towards a hybrid

as the preferred option between

the two.

From family cars to work trucks and

supercars to fixer-uppers.

New home for

Mike Pero Selwyn

New, refurbished premises at 6A Kidman Street, Rolleston.

Local real estate firm, Mike Pero Selwyn

has a new look, with the team recently

moving into new, refurbished premises in

Rolleston.

Branch owners, Joe and Tracey Brankin

are delighted with their new premises,

which back onto Rolleston School and

are just down the road from St John and

the new health facility, currently under

construction.

“It’s a really great location in central

Rolleston and we have plenty of off-street

parking at the rear,” says Joe.

In another exciting change, a property

management company and mortgage

advisor will soon be joining the team,

meaning Mike Pero Selwyn will be a onestop

shop for real estate services.

Mike Pero Selwyn is a locally recognised

real estate brand, where the team have

strong connections with the district.

Born and bred in Malvern, Joe has the

Diploma in Real Estate and over twenty

years’ real estate experience. He and Tracey

have operated real estate agencies for a

number of years, giving them a thorough

understanding of the market (locally and

region wide).

While Joe takes a hands-on approach

to all facets of the business including real

estate sales, Tracey who is a fully qualified

salesperson, oversees the administrative

aspects of Mike Pero Selwyn. They are

supported by real estate salespersons,

Heather Clouston and Steph Kimber.

Heather who comes from a farming

background is also known for her

days operating the Darfield bookshop,

Kiwibank and post shop.

Steph is known for the many community

activities she is involved in. She is one of

the organisers of the Hororata Highland

Games and Hororata Night Glow and

sponsors the Hororata and Greendale golf

clubs.

Mike Pero Selwyn is a supporter of the

Garden to Table programme at Rolleston

School, with Heather assisting through

financial and active involvement with

the children in planting and growing the

vegetables, an initiative she thoroughly

enjoys.

Mike Pero Selwyn specialises in all types

of property sales, from residential through

to lifestyle and farm properties. They offer

a full range of real estate services, tailored

to each customer’s requirements.

“People are welcome to call in for a

coffee and a chat anytime,” says Tracey.

You will find Mike Pero Selwyn’s new

offices at 6A Kidman Street in Rolleston

(just across from BP). To contact them,

call 347 1111 or email: tracey.brankin@
