Maddie loses

Fast food junkie’s

dramatic weight

loss

• By Devon Bolger

JULIET SHERRIFF used to spend

about $150 a week on takeaways. Now

she is 46kg lighter after using a mobile

phone app to lose weight.

At her heaviest, she was 115.3kg and

now two years later she is maintaining

her goal weight for the first time and

now weighs 69kg.

The 35-year-old said she was

always slim as a child, but after a

busy professional life had her eating

takeaways on the run for breakfast,

lunch and dinner, the weight soon

began to creep on.

“After my pregnancy, I got up to

a really high weight. It was hard

mentally, as I used to be so slim

growing up. I remember going to a

market and pulling open my wallet,

the stallholder saw my ID from when I

was slimmer and said: “Oh my God, is

that you?”

“This journey was never about what

other people thought of me, I wanted

to do this for me and do this for my

daughter, Zoey who is four, but that

really, really sucked to hear,” she said.

Sherriff said she started using the

myWW wellness app in 2018 and

was able to change her mindset and

embrace a more holistic approach to

her health. • Turn to page 4

Former

council

employee

back in

court

• By Devon Bolger

THE WAY has been cleared for a

community group to try and get

back about $18,500 stolen by a

former district council employee

they trusted.

Lisa Elaine Larkin, 51, will be

sentenced in the Christchurch

District Court in late October

after pleading guilty to two

charges of theft by a person in a

special relationship and one of

forgery with intent to obtain a

benefit.

Last week, Larkin abandoned

a legal bid in the district court

where she had intended to dispute

the amount it was claimed

had been stolen from Selwyn

SeniorNet’s bank account.

The former district council

community development adviser

was convicted in May of stealing

about $18,500 from the Selwyn

SeniorNet’s bank account.

The group says it has affected

their ability to help elderly in the

district.

Selwyn SeniorNet chairman

Terry Pierson said reparations

would be sought from Larkin

when she is sentenced on

October 28. • Turn to page 6

Maddie recovering

after removal of second transplanted kidney

• By Devon Bolger

WEST MELTON teenager

Maddie Collins has had her

second transplanted kidney

removed after her body rejected

it.

The 16-year-old is now reliant

on dialysis to keep her alive.

She has

been battling

the

kidney

disease,

nephrotic

syndrome

for several

years.

Sarah

Manson-Collins

Maddie’s

mother,

Sarah

Manson-Collins, said the kidney,

which was transplanted in

2018, was removed on July 28

following a steady decline in its

function.

“She has really improved with

the kidney gone, we don’t have

any temperatures anymore.

We just have the pain from the

surgery. I think it was the best

decision,” she said.

Manson-Collins said Maddie

now has to continue with fivehour

hemodialysis sessions three

times a week for the next month.

“We can’t use her peritoneal

dialysis tube for another month

because shes had surgery.

“It is a better treatment

because she can just hook

herself up overnight and

sleep while it’s happening and

disconnect herself from it in the

morning.”

The best way forward for

Maddie now is to have a period

of stability on overnight dialysis

before the search for another

transplant begins again, she said.

“We have a new paired exchange

programme between

New Zealand and Australia

now. There is starting to be more

awareness around people being

donors so as long as we can keep

pushing that message then we

have hope.”

Maddie received what was

termed a ‘miracle’ second kidney

transplant in 2018 after being

told there was only a two per

cent chance of finding a match in

New Zealand.

The first was donated six years

ago by her father Adam but her

body rejected it as well.

There have been a series of

ups and downs since the transplant.

In December last year the

declining function of the kidney

became clear through blood tests

showing high creatinine levels.

The family didn’t expect to be

able to find the second kidney

match and were planning a trip

to The John Hopkins Hospital in

Baltimore, United States, to find

one when they were notified an

Arrests after

gate thefts

• By Devon Bolger

POLICE HAVE made a major

breakthrough over farm gate

thefts in the district, arresting a

man and a woman from Oxford.

A police patrol stopped a vehicle

in the Darfield area about 3.30am

last Wednesday which led to the

arrest of a 37-year-old woman

and a 38-year-old man. A large

number of stolen farm gates were

found on their property, said

Senior Sergeant Harker.

He said the gates were being

sold on social media.

The arrested pair will face a

number of charges in the Christchurch

District Court on August 24.

“It was the great work of

Constable Hamish Caird of the

Darfield Police that led to these

arrests.”

Police were patrolling the area

specifically looking for those

responsible for the gate thefts.

Harker said anyone who has

had gates stolen but have not

reported it should phone the Darfield

Police.

There have been about 20-30

incidents of gates and fencing being

stolen across Selwyn over the

last few weeks.

This includes seven incidents

over one weekend.

School options open for consultation

• By Devon Bolger

A SECOND Rolleston College

campus or entirely new school

are the options being considered

for future secondary school

education in the area.

The Canterbury National

Education Growth Plan 2030

predicts the area’s current high

school could reach its capacity of

1800 students by 2027/28. It currently

has 976 students.

It is anticipated an additional

600-800 secondary-aged students

will require access to a

local state school in the area by

2030.

It comes as the Ministry of

Education releases proposed

new primary school zones for

Rolleston.

The community will get a

chance to have their say on the

amendments.

“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,” it said in the consultation

document.

Public consultation is also

under way, through D & G Consulting,

on the options to ensure

future high-schoolers are catered

for in the area.

One of the options being

considered is a second Rolleston

College campus on a different

site.

“This second campus

would have the same

board of trustees and

management team. There

would also be a single vision

and identity for the

school,” the consultation

document says.

Different ways this option

could work are also

being considered including

students being separated into

junior and senior campuses.

Rolleston College principal

Rachel Skelton said she supports

the idea of a second campus.

“A second campus would allow

Rachel

Skelton

cohesion and avoid our town

being divided into two separate

zones.

“There are a number of

possibilities for the community

to consider in

terms of what that could

look like.”

The search area for a

potential site is in the

south of Rolleston, about

1.5-2km from the college.

A Ministry of Education

spokeswoman said

it was unable to provide detail on

the sites being considered at this

stage, so as not to prejudice or

disadvantage our ability to carry

out commercial negotiations.

The other option being

considered by the ministry is a

completely new high school.

“It would have its own

identity, own governance and

own uniform. The design of

such a school would be

developed with input from the

community.”

​Public meetings have been

planned at Clearview School

on August 10 and 11, 7-8pm to

gather further feedback on the

issues.

Do you snore?

Always tired?

You may be at risk of sleep apnoea.

Wilsons Barrington Pharmacy

are making a difference to

their community by offering a

game changing sleep apnoea

service to reach the 80% of

undiagnosed obstructive sleep

apnoea (OSA) sufferers in

New Zealand.

There are a number of symptoms

that could be a sign of OSA,

including choking or gasping

for air at night, loud persistent

snoring, frequent visits to the

bathroom & waking up tired.

Left untreated these can lead

to long term health

consequences such as Type 2

diabetes, high blood pressure,

obesity and depression.

Fortunately it is now easy to get

diagnosed for OSA with Wilsons’

Pharmacy Sleep Services program.

People can now simply walk into

their pharmacy and get tested for

OSA straight away.

The overnight home sleep test

allows a person to sleep in the

comfort of their own bed. No doctor

referral is required. The results of

the home sleep test are assessed

by a sleep physician and provided

7-10 days later. If a person’s results

show they have OSA they can begin

a 4 week trial of CPAP therapy.

apnoea contact Wilsons Barrington

sleep test.

responds to pool closure claims

• By Devon Bolger

THE COMMITTEE responsible

for running the Halkett Pool

is rejecting claims that poor

management led to it breaching

pool water safety standards.

Last week Selwyn Times reported

the district council voted

to close the pool for the season as

well as consider permanent closure

under the Long Term Plan.

It is due to health and safety

concerns at the pool which

includes having 11 days in a row

of non-compliant water readings

in January.

A spokeswoman for the

Halkett Community Centre

Committee said: “Up until two

years ago we had no issues with

our pool, at which time the

council employed a new aquatic

centre manager and all of our issues

have started since then.”

The spokeswoman said the

district council installed a new

chemical dispenser two years ago

without consultation or notification.

“We were advised by the

aquatic manager that we were

REJECTED: The Halkett Pool has been closed due to health and safety concerns but the

committee which manages it has said that it is not their fault. ​

not to control or alter the new

dispenser as they would take

care of this and adjust as and if

required. They started our pump

and controller at the beginning

of our season and incorrectly set

the chlorine level at zero themselves.”

Active Selwyn manager James

Richmond said the committee

was in fact allowed to control the

dispenser.

“Operating it is part of the

day to day running of the pools,

done by the pool committees.

The controller committees are

informed that if there are issues

with the dispenser they are to

follow the supplied Pool Water

Risk Management Plan or contact

staff. Neither occurred in

this case.

“A staff member did turn on

the pool filtration and added

chlorine to the water at the

Halkett Pool last year, but did

not modify the controller as it requires

the chlorine to have been

in the pool for 24 hours first.”

One of the issues the district

council had with the committee

was that it had no members present

at a pool operations course

last year.

The committee spokeswoman

said: “We were not advised that

more than one person could

attend this course and due to

unforeseen last minute work

commitments at a busy time of

the year the committee member

could not attend, however, offered

to attend another course.

“Why did the council not run

this course earlier in the year

rather than leaving it till last minute

when pools were due to open?”

Richmond refutes this saying

all of the committees were

informed of the course five and a

half weeks beforehand and multiple

spaces were available.

“We did not receive a response

from the Halkett committee

until over a month later, after we

had sent them a reminder. Other

pool committees had already

booked, with one sending five

members to attend the course.”

Land could be set aside

for reserve in Lincoln

LAND NEAR the old

Lincoln Country Club

site has been set aside

and could become a

community reserve.

The district council was

considering subdividing

and selling the land around

and opposite the old club

on Millpond Lane, adjacent

to the LII River.

It had proposed subdividing

it into seven lots.

However, taking into

account feedback from the

community, it has agreed

to put five lots up for sale

on the northern side of the

property.

A district council spokesman

said the remaining two

lots will be considered for a

possible future reserve.

A report on the matter

will be presented to district

councillors at a later date.

KEEP WAR M THIS

WINTER WITH OUR HOT DEALS

PROJECT:

Lot numbers

six and

seven on

Millpond

Lane have

been set

aside by

the district

council for

a potential

future

reserve.

The next steps for the

project include appointing

real estate agents to sell the

five lots.

“Documentation is being

prepared to issue to real

estate agents for the sale of

the sections.”

The work is a part of a

plan for the district council

to sell some of its residential

sections over the next

three months.

How do you live the life you’ve always wanted?

There are many things to consider when

making the decision to move into a lifestyle

village. Everyone has different requirements,

whether it be a true community atmosphere

with an inclusive social scene, or be situated

in a new suburb where everything you need is

close by, or well-designed quality home which

supports and caters to all aging requirements..

Whatever your fancy, it’s rather easy to see

Woodcroft Estate as your new home. “Our

residents are better off in every way,” says

Manor Group CEO Adam Yates. “Here, they

enjoy a warm, safe and relaxing environment

within a friendly community, while the onsite

manager looks after any concerns or

maintenance issues. “All those jobs you had

to do to maintain your old house are taken

care of by the village staff.. “They manage any

repairs and maintenance to your home, looking

after the gardens and lawn mowing, providing

security, lighting and even washing windows.”

But there is something even more special

about Woodcroft Estate.

A model of home ownership that

benefits you more

“Our residents are better off financially”

says Adam. “Our Next Generation model is

designed to be much fairer than traditional

models, allowing residents to receive the

capital gain when the unit is sold, less a small

fee. Our aim is to free our residents from

their worries, while residents get the financial

freedom that comes from retaining and

building on their equity.”

The Next Generation Model gives you

options, enabling you to gift your chosen

charity or leave a legacy to your grandchildren

– contributing to their education, or

even their first home!

Life is for living

For those who have already made the move

to Woodcroft Estate – talk revolves excitedly

around the brand new Pavilion. Providing

a dynamic new social hub – there is much

discussion of quiz nights, dances, live music

and of course all kinds of exercise and craft

classes. Outside a new BBQ area will be just

the ticket for gathering in the sunshine.

At Woodcroft Estate – you become an integral

part of village life – contributing in ways you

WOODCROFT ESTATE

A retirement village with a difference

never thought possible in a lifestyle estate.

Woodcroft Estate residents have never

been happier – residing comfortably in the

fast growing and vibrant new township of

Rolleston – where a library and community

centre are close by. There is a swimming

pool and two medical centres, as well as two

supermarkets. There are even hearing and eye

specialists! Plenty of cafes to meet friends,

and delicious bakeries for that morning tea –

everything you need to feel right at home.

You will find

Successful

AGM for

hospital group

THE FRIENDS of Ellesmere

Hospital’s annual general

meeting was a success with local

and regional health experts in

attendance.

The meeting was held at the

Leeston Community Centre with

special guests including Win

MacDonald who is the rural hospitals

manager for the Canterbury

District Health Board and a number

of district councillors.

Group member Geoff Lill said:

“Councillor Grant Miller spoke

on behalf of the district council

and talked about the renewed

focus of the council on supporting

healthcare in the community.’’

The guest speaker was Mike

Hobbs who was, until his recent

retirement, the local GP in Leeston

for more than 40 years.

“He spoke of his close association

with the hospital as superintendent,

the importance of the hospital

services to our local community,

and some of the changes he had

seen over his time there.”

A GROUP from the Malvern

area are shaving their mullets

to raise money for the Motor

Neurone Disease Association

New Zealand.

Johnny Barnard, Finn Jacobs,

Tobi Moore, Ryan Thomas,

Todd Thomas, Cole Atutolu,

Jack Barnes, William Wilson

and Dylan Duffy are participating

in a shave-off event at the

Kirwee Rugby Club on Saturday.

Motor neurone disease causes

the death of nerve cells (neurones)

that control the muscles

enabling movement, speech,

swallowing and breathing. With

no nerves to activate them, these

muscles gradually weaken and

waste away.

Tobi came up with the initial

idea in memory of his, and

cousin Johnny’s, uncle George

Redmond who succumbed to

the disease earlier this year.

Finn was also interested in

participating as he lost his great

grandmother to MND as well.

The group is hoping to raise

between $5000 and $10,000.

“In memory of George Redmond

we invite the community

to help us raise funds to assist

those around the country battling

this incurable disease,”

organisers Jan Thomas and

Vanessa Moore said.

At present the group has

raised $4500.

“The group has numerous

A special morning tea was held

to mark the occasion.

Drake: “Members were happy to

be meeting again after several

months of observing lockdown

restrictions. Several charter members

were in attendance.”

new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims

are all common names for

Anobium punctatum.

This wood-boring insect

is found in untreated

timbers and particularly in

Adults are brown in

colour, vary from 2.5 to

5mm in length and have a

monk-like hood over their

head.

The creamy white

is the one that does the

Their presence is often

Week of celebrating

Selwyn’s diversity

Celebrations of Selwyn’s cultural diversity will expand this year with CultureFest kicking off a

week of new events.

The ever popular CultureFest, which draws thousands of people each year, will mark the start of

the new Culture Week from 18–24 October.

has been increasing demand for and interest expressed in workshops and displays that

showcase traditional sports, dancing and music of different cultures. The Council and Lincoln

University, who have partnered previously to deliver CultureFest, with a range of other cultural

groups and clubs, have worked together to set up this new week.

The success of CultureFest and the workshops that have taken place as well as the interest

we have been receiving, suggest there is space in the community for a bigger celebration, that

supports strong community club and group participation , Council Group Manager Community

Services and Facilities Denise Kidd says.

“Having Culture Week allows us to build on the huge success of CultureFest, offering

opportunities to grow our knowledge of the many different, vibrant cultures that make up our

people here in Selwyn. It’s an opportunity for people who haven’t been able to take part in

CultureFest, as well as giving popular workshops a chance to go deeper and give people a

richer flavour of their heritage.”

The Council is now taking expressions of interest from people wanting to be involved in

CultureFest and the wider Culture Week. Any individual, club or group interested in performing

on stage or being a stallholder at CultureFest, or running a workshop, during Culture Week can

find a form at selwyn.govt.nz/cultureweek.

Creative Communities

Selwyn can help!

Funding is available to groups or individuals

with community-based creative projects

that promote arts or culture in Selwyn.

Applications for this funding round close at

5pm, Friday 28 August.

Visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/artsfunding for

more information and to apply.

Rates accounts and

payment options

Rates invoices for the period 1 July 2020 to 30 September

2020 should have arrived in your letterboxes or inboxes.

You can check out the changes in your rates, by visiting

selwyn.govt.nz/rates and clicking on property search.

If you pay by direct debit you will receive information on

your new direct debit in a separate letter. If you’re on direct

debit then, as long as you have sufficient funds in your bank

account to cover the payments on the due dates, you will not

be charged penalties.

For ratepayers not on a direct debit, rates are payable in four

instalments – 15 September, 15 December, 15 March and 15

June. Penalties are charged on instalments not paid in full by

the due dates and there is a further penalty if rates are not

paid by 30 June.

Your rates invoice details the rates assessed for your

property for both the Council and Environment Canterbury.

The Council assesses a general rate, based on your

property’s capital value, district-wide targeted rates, plus

other targeted rates based on where you live, or the services

you receive. We also act as agent for the collection of

Environment Canterbury rates within Selwyn district.

The average rates increase for the 2020/21 year is 1.6%,

however this will vary for individual properties. Rates take

account of capital values, as well any changes to your

property, for example if you have built a house on your

section, or if you have changed your wheelie bins.

Ratepayers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic can

apply for a rates payment extension, which is available for

2020/21 rates.

For more information about rates, including forms, payment

options and extensions, visit selwyn.govt.nz/rates or phone

0800 SELWYN (735 996).

Apply for a

rates rebate

Ratepayers who are on a low income and who pay rates

on the property they live in may be eligible for a rates

rebate.

If your gross household income to 31 March 2020 was

$26,150 or less, and you pay rates on the property where

you live, you may qualify for a rebate. If your income was

more than this, you may still be eligible, depending on the

total cost of your rates and the number of dependents in

your family.

To find out if you are eligible for a rates rebate, and to

download forms, visit ratesrebates.govt.nz. Forms are

also available from Council service centres.

If you received a rates rebate last year you will

automatically be sent an application form.

To apply, you will need to provide accurate details and

copies of your gross income, and that of any partner/

spouse/joint homeowner who lives with you, for the tax

year ended 31 March 2020.

You can apply for your rebate at any Council service centre.

the Oscar like awards evening

in September.

Logan Edwards receives the 2019 Kea Trophy

on behalf of his production team from

Courtney Sheat from the Rata Foundation

Invitations were sent out to schools and to others who might be interested in making

a short film about their environmental concerns. In the past we have seen some

amazingly creative and thought provoking productions and tremendous effort made by

people of all ages to showcase their ideas about our world.

There is still plenty of time left to plan and produce a film. People are also welcome to

enter films they have previously made as long as they fit the criteria.

In the past, the Awards Evening has always been an exciting event. Young and old

enjoy watching all the short films before hearing from the judges. All film makers are

presented with worthwhile prizes and there are special prizes for different categories,

and for the winners of the Kea Trophy.

All details of the competition, previous entries and the Awards’ Night

in September, can be found on Eventbrite, or Lincoln Envirotown’s

Flowering annuals, camellias,

rhododendrons and cherry trees

brighten up gardens in this cold

month. It’s an excellent time for

planning your summer garden.

Fruit trees

Harvest time for citrus coming

Spray pip and stone fruit trees

with a final application of a

also help prevent the outbreak of

fungal diseases in spring.

Feijoas can be ‘thinned out’

now. These trees respond to careful

pruning so they will produce

more regular crops each year.

Named variety feijoas eg Apollo

are cutting grown, producing a

more open, large bush.

The traditional seedling grown

feijoas are very dense growth

branches and where branches

overlap. Maintain the ultimate

height of the feijoas at 2.5-3m

to allow for easier care of the

Ride-on electric

mowing a reality

Pure education is a big part of the job

for Bruce Scott from Mean Green Mowers

and that makes sense when introducing

new technology to the market place.

“People often have the image of a small

mower with a power cord hanging out the

side, and the odd jaw does drop when I

tell them we have mowers with a 74 inch

(1.88m) deck that can mow for up to eight

hours continuously.”

Uptake of the Mean Green brand has

been encouraging in New Zealand, with

mowers operating from Kerikeri to

Invercargill. Most large contractors have

a machine, as do many councils. One

contractor uses a couple of Mean Green

machines to mow Lincoln University

where low-noise operation is really

appreciated.

“I mow our lifestyle property in Tai Tapu

with a Nemesis 48 inch machine, and I

always tell my partner I’m off to mow the

lawns. She can’t hear the mower operating

from inside, so if I disappear I want to

avoid accusations that I slipped off down

to the pub,” says Bruce.

The mowers operate at less than half

the noise levels of petrol mowers so you

won’t bother the neighbours mowing on a

Sunday morning.

Imported from the United States Mean

Green mowers are extremely well built

and have plenty of instant mowing power

available at the flick of a switch

When considering the purchase of an

electric mower, Bruce says it is important

to have a close look at the numbers. A

petrol machine could cost up to $16,250

over a 10-year period on fuel alone. So

this number needs to be added to the

purchase price of a standard mower to

compare apples with apples and it is an

even wider gap when taking into account

the low maintenance requirements of

electric machines.

“Everyone’s situation is different so I

encourage clients to call for a chat. And,

pop up and see a machine, we’re just in

Tai Tapu.”

For more information contact Bruce

either by phone on 027 223 0054 or

email him at bruce@meangreenmowers.

Farm vehicle maintenance saves

Farm vehicles can get a hard life,

being driven around the paddocks and

over rough roads. With so much work

to be done on the farm their regular

maintenance can get overlooked.

The effect of ignoring regular motor

vehicle servicing is more serious issues

can arise, resulting in costly repairs, which

might otherwise have been avoided. A

reliable vehicle also means you’re not

stranded on a country road or the back

paddocks of the farm.

Vehicle servicing should be carried out

every 5,000-10,000 kilometres, whether

a newer or older model, and by a reliable

and competent specialist in automotive

repairs. Regular servicing ensures a

vehicle is roadworthy between Warrant

of Fitness checks. This is important no

matter what the age of the vehicle, as even

new vehicles can breakdown.

Simon, Hayden and Vince at Rolleston

Diesel & Petrols take care of a lot of farm

utes, 4WD’s, farm bikes and the odd

tractor, as well as the family car. They have

considerable experience and expertise in

automotive servicing and repairs.

“Two problems we regularly see

occurring, is vehicle maintenance being

overlooked and where the farm’s fuel

supply has become contaminated. This

can lead to poor vehicle performance,

black smoke belching out, high fuel

usage and potential breakdowns,” advises

Simon, owner of Rolleston Diesel &

Petrols.

If you are having problems with any of

your vehicles, it may well be worth having

a chat to one of the team at Rolleston

Diesel & Petrols. They are only too keen

to help. You can be assured they will

offer honest advice on the state of your

motor vehicle. Whether there is a noise

coming from under the bonnet, a smell of

oil, tyres looking suspiciously worn, or a

battery which is slow to start, sorting any

problem early may avoid being without

the vehicle for a period of time, as well

as the cost of any necessary repairs. It

will also help ensure the vehicle is safe to

drive.

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols is wellequipped

with sophisticated diagnostic

equipment, and they only use reliable

quality components, oils and original

specifically manufactured equipment

parts.

“I believe in regular vehicle maintenance

and carrying out proper repairs, using

parts which will last,” says Simon.

Whether a ute, 4WD, car, van, light

commercial (up to 12 ton), motorhome,

bus, motorcycle, jet ski, boat, horse

float or ride-on lawnmower, the team at

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols will service and

repair it, as well as take care of any WOF

checks when due.

As a member of the Motor Trade

Association you are assured quality

workmanship at this locally owned and

operated business where locals look after

the people of Selwyn.

Canterbury Fonterra’s

best big site

In its 14th year the Fonterra Best

Site Cups celebrate the best in

manufacturing.

Canterbury is now home to Fonterra’s

best big Site following the ‘Oscars of

Manufacturing’, Fonterra’s best site

cup awards. Darfield picked up the

hotly contested award ahead of the 25

other Fonterra

manufacturing sites

throughout the

country.

Darfield site is

starting to ramp

back up after winter

shut so it was great

for the teams to come together, virtually

this year, to celebrate the year that’s been.

The site had a great year making

progress against their goals. One of those

is the target set by the Co-op last year to

reduce water use by 30% by 2030.

Harriet Van Genne-Knape, General

Manager of operations at Darfield says,

“We are very proud of this result and

the awesome recognition for our entire

Darfield team. Everything came together

quite nicely in FY20 for us. We had

a clear vision, strategy, set ourselves

ambitious targets and we passionately

worked hard on these every day.

“I think the key to our success is that

we strongly believed that we could do it

and that we followed the Darfield way of

doing things which is sometimes a little

bit different. We are always focussed on

how we could do things better, and all of

you have worked tirelessly over a number

of years to be rewarded with this result.”

Fonterra’s Darfield site employs

more than 280 people from around

Canterbury, all of them work to turn

Fonterra farmers milk into milk powder

and cream cheese that ends up in more

than 40 markets around the world.

Fonterra’s manufacturing sites employ

close to 7,000 people throughout

the country in a range of roles from

factory processors to tanker operators,

food safety and quality experts and

environmental managers, all of them

working to turn farmers milk into

products that end up in more than 140

countries around the world.

Feisty yet frugal Volvo station wagon

VOLVO HAS HAD a long and

notable motorsport heritage.

I became familiar with some

of that during my many visits to

Wellington to watch the Nissan

Mobil 500 street race in the late

80s and early 90s. While the

Volvo T5 wagon looked a little

out of place on the race track,

it certainly had speed, and it

clocked up much success globally,

especially in European touring

car championship races.

The T5 had a square, boxy

shape that earned it the nickname

Swedish taxi, but the point is it

was amazingly successful, and

when I first drove it in road going

form in 2004 I was blown away

with its power and performance.

Since then Volvo has marketed

many fine wagons and has

impressed with its power plants,

feisty engines which also double

as being frugal.

Enter 2020 and another Volvo

wagon has landed – the V60 T8

R-Design, another very quick

station wagon, yet also amazes

with its 2l/100km combined cycle

fuel usage claim.

That’s down to hybrid

technology, today’s V60 has a

turbocharged and supercharged

four-cylinder petrol engine. The

1969cc unit develops a hearty

246kW and 430Nm, if that’s not

enough, add into the equation

a rear-mounted electric engine

which adds 65kW and 240Nm,

it’s no surprise then the V60 is

swift when the accelerator is

given a nudge.

Volvo claims a 4.5sec standstill

to 100km/h acceleration time,

that’s quick, and what’s more,

the V60 feels fast, it is fully

responsive and delivers in a fluid,

decisive manner, typical of both

turbocharging and supercharging

techniques.

While its performance is every

bit as exciting as its predecessors,

it must be remembered that

hybrid technology is there for

a reason, and in this age where

caring for the environment has

become a major priority, the V60

also addresses that with plug-in

electric storage capability. The

system isn’t as generous as you

would get from a fully electric

vehicle, but it definitely has

purpose.

Volvo also claims and electric

range of around 30-40km,

which would satisfy for a daily

commute; however, there’s no

driver-selectable EV mode,

what happens is that the V60

VOLVO V60 T8: Hybrid system allows up to 30km of

motoring on one charge.

will happily run all the time on

electric power only, but if you

are forceful with the throttle the

engine will burst into life and give

you immediate acceleration.

I was determined to allow

the V60 to work electrically for my

commute, it does so willingly, but

there were a couple of times when

keeping pace with traffic meant

petrol power cut in, however, the

end result is that massive fuel

savings can be achieved.

During my time in the

evaluation car the fuel usage

displays were listing between

3-4l/100km with 2.2l/100km

showing instantaneously at

100km/h, the engine turning

over well below 2000rpm in

eighth gear. Yes, the V60 has

a traditional torque converter

gearbox and, as you would

expect in a luxury car, the

transition of ratios is almost

seamless.

You need no special technique

to drive the V60, it is very

orthodox and is built with

the sophistication we have

come to expect from this great

Scandinavian car maker. It also

gets a five-star safety rating, no

surprises there, Volvo is sold

universally as being one of the

world’s safest car manufacturers.

I’ve made no secret over the years

of my affection for the traditional

station wagon, and the V60 really

appeals to me. In practical terms,

the rear cargo section can hold

up to 529-litres and loading it is

far from a chore, the ride height

is at an easy level for lifting the

groceries out of the supermarket

trolley and into the vehicle. That

load space doesn’t compromise the

rear seating area either, the V60 is

comfortable and spacious.

On the road it is quiet and

extremely comfortable, the spring

and damper rates are biased

towards comfort, which is no

surprise, the V60 is a true touring

car and it needs to cocoon the

occupants.

It gets a load of kit for its

$114,900 price tag (evaluation

car $121,400). The controls are

laid out for ease of use, many

functions are operated through a

large central touch screen display,

which is very intuitive.

Two Star Media employees

drive Volvos. I’m always being

reminded of the safety criteria

which influenced the decision

to buy into the brand. Nothing

has changed, Volvo has set the

benchmark in this area, and

when you are inside the car you

feel that quality build.

The V60 is a remarkable car

in terms of what it represents, its

speed puts it most definitely in

the performance car category, but

it is also a thrifty fuel miser. Add

in the wagon effect and you’ve got

many cars in one.

That’s just as you would expect

from Volvo, it is something just

that little bit different all round,

but spectacular nonetheless.

Wednesday August 5 2020 33

Authorised by Dianna Lacy, 160 Willis Street, Wellington.

Hello

I’m Reuben Davidson and it’s my privilege to be your Labour candidate for Selwyn.

I am asking for your support to elect me as your Member of Parliament to be Selwyn’s voice

in Wellington.

Canterbury born and bred and proud of it — over the past twenty years I’ve worked hard as a

producer in television and more recently as a Community Board Member for Banks Peninsula.

Now I want to work hard for you.

Our nation’s response to COVID-19 has been outstanding but there are still challenges ahead.

Together our team of five million can work to recover and rebuild for a smarter, safer even better

New Zealand. With the leadership of Jacinda Ardern, Labour has the plan to protect local families

and jobs by backing our businesses and supporting our local industries.

As your candidate I am keen to hear from you. I’m in the electorate and available to catch up

anytime or meet you at one of our street corner meetings. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you

Reuben Davidson

Labour Party candidate for Selwyn

SELWYN TIMES

Labour in Selwyn

Supporting Farmers

Our farming sector drives our local and

national economy. Labour created the

Primary Sector Council, a group

of farming, agribusiness and export

leaders to represent the needs of this

vital industry. Recently they have

launched Te Taiao, a world leading

initiative that bridges the gap between

protecting our environment and

growing our rural economy.

The initiative’s aim is that the industry

can work as one to make best use of

our resources and sustain our

prosperity, ensuring skilled jobs

for our local Selwyn economy.

Keeping People Working

The Wage Subsidy Scheme is part of

our government’s response to the

immediate and mid-term challenges

presented by COVID-19.

Businesses in Canterbury have reported

the Wage Subsidy having the highest

positive impact, enabling them to keep

people in work.

The uptake across Canterbury and

Selwyn has been high, and has allowed

many local small businesses to continue

trading through challenging times.

Boosting Connectivity

The rural communities of Selwyn

need better broadband connectivity.

In Government, Labour has made it a

priority to upgrade mobile towers in

places like Southbridge and Windwhistle

that have high numbers of school-age

children living in households without

internet access.

COVID-19 has shown us the importance

of being digitally connected, allowing

people to work and learn from home and

eliminating our black spots for essential

services.

Gebbies Valley was recently the 100th

4G Cell Tower site in this scheme. The

second phase of our plan will continue to

boost connectivity across remote rural

areas like Selwyn.

Reuben Davidson for Selwyn


SELWYN TIMES Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Authorised by Dianna Lacy, 160 Willis Street, Wellington.

Funding Darfield Fire Station

A recent funding boost of $1 million will

fast-track construction of the Darfield

Fire Station expansion.

This important local investment will bring

urban and rural services together and

provide a co-located hub for fire and

emergency response services in Darfield

for the surrounding areas.

This is a direct investment into an

important local lifeline and continues

work in keeping our community safe.

Empowering our Community

The Resource Management Act (RMA)

is the framework legislation to guide local

Councils on rules for resource use and

environmental controls.

Selwyn has recently been in the news with

regards to the new Roydon Quarry near

homes in Templeton, and the toxic waste

treatment plant on Prebbleton’s doorstep.

Under the National government, the

community was locked out of decisions

and had their views ignored. Labour is

working to reinstate this fundamental

community voice into decisions that

affect you. Our team are committed

to repealing and replacing the RMA

to ensure greater local community

involvement to deliver better

environmental outcomes.

Investing in our Future

Investing in Research and Development

is vital to maintain our position as world

leaders in innovative and sustainable

farming practice.

I’m really proud that we’ve recently made

a $45 million investment into a fit-forfuture

scientific research facility at Ag

Research in Lincoln. The build will be a

boost to the Selwyn economy, a future

asset for Lincoln and provide a centre of

excellence for land-based science and

farming research.

It is vital that we back our brightest

thinking to ensure our primary industries

can innovate and thrive in Selwyn.

Let’s keep moving

Authorised by Dianna Lacy, 160 Willis Street, Wellington.

I care deeply about people. I am born and bred in Canterbury surrounded by a large supportive family, and received

an excellent education enabling me to work in a job I love.

I’ve worked my way up the ranks of television production in New Zealand, starting with making coffee. I’ve

production-managed lifestyle and magazine shows for Television New Zealand and worked as a Creator and

Series Producer for New Zealand’s largest children’s production company — always with an eye to increasing

opportunities for business and jobs in Canterbury.

As an elected Community Board member for Banks Peninsula (which until recently overlapped Selwyn) I value how

much our local rural communities contribute to the national economy and have seen how they can be best served

and supported.

It would be my honour to serve you as the Labour MP for Selwyn.

Your vote matters — choose two ticks for Labour to keep Selwyn moving forward.

Get your home noticed

It takes more than good photography to help sell a

home. You’ll want your home to look attractive and

appealing for a potential home buyer so check out

these following tips to get your home ready for

real estate photography and open homes...

• First impressions count: Clear away shoes, coats and other items to make your

front entrance look clean and welcoming.

• Create natural light: Open all curtains and/or blinds; turn on lights for open

home days.

• Keep it clean: A clean house and well cared for section will be far more

appealing to a buyer; get rid of cobwebs; shine the taps; polish the windows and

doorknobs; wash and vacuum the floors.

• Stay fresh: Don’t allow stale cooking and living smells to linger – open windows

daily, display a vase of sweet smelling flowers, and if need be an occasional spray

with a can of air freshener. Don’t burn incense as the buyer may wonder what you

are trying to cover up.

• De-clutter every room: This is the most important. Clean counters, tables,

coffee tables and wall units. Clutter really attracts the eye and takes away from the

beauty of the home.

• Kitchen/Dining: Remove all unnecessary items; keep the benches clean and

clear; remove all used tea towels and dishcloths; use flowers to brighten up the

dining table.

• Bathroom: We all have clutter in the bathroom – toothbrushes, creams,

toothpaste etc. Before the photographer arrives (or potential buyers) put all the

clutter into a small box, which can easily be stored out of sight. Place clean colour

co-ordinated towels, neatly folded, onto the towel rail.

• Bedroom: Use colour coordinated bedcovers and linen; plump up your pillows;

straighten the valance; put all clothing and person items out of sight.

• Office: It’s often hard to keep this room perfectly tidy but try to keep it as orderly

as possible.

• Keep corners free of clutter: This helps make a room look bigger and therefore

more spacious.

• Make your room look bigger: rearrange furniture to create more floor space.

• Add colour: If your house is neutral in colour, try adding small touches of colour

with fresh flowers. Another quick color fix is to use cushions but don’t go overboard.

Red works well against neutral backgrounds as do bright blues and greens. Just

remember to keep it minimal, pick one colour per room, and it will work.

• Move toys out of living areas: Keep them in the rumpus room or the children’s

bedrooms.

• Boxes or small storage units: Stack them in one area or the spare bedroom.

Better not to take a picture of the spare bedroom than have boxes or storage

boxes in each room. Better yet – stack them against one wall and this way the

photographer can avoid that wall when taking the picture.

• Check your cords, cables and wires: Tuck and hide those cords away or simply

unplug them.

• Keep pets out of sight: Prospective buyers don’t want pets leaping at them

or they may be even allergic to pet hair, so keep them out of sight or away for

photography and open home days.

• Clean up your section and garage: Keep lawns mowed, gardens weeded, hoses

and wheelbarrow stored out of sight; take excess rubbish to the tip; and arrange your

garage to look as spacious and orderly as possible.

Don’t burn incense as the buyer may wonder

what you are trying to cover up.

Snuggle down

When it comes to home heating, ‘bang

for your buck’ is essential and part of

this is ensuring your home is adequately

insulated. Did you know that a 2% gap

in insulation can result in a 20% heat

loss? This can make a huge difference to

the comfort of your home.

Insulation works by slowing heat

loss from your home, enclosing it in a

thermal envelope. This is why around

40% of heat is lost through the ceiling in

the average uninsulated home.

In addition to insulation, simple

measures, such as using thermal

curtains and sealing gaps and cracks,

will eliminate draughts and prevent

warm air escaping where it shouldn’t.

It also pays to remember that heating

a room to a moderate constant

temperature is much more efficient than

a fluctuating heat.

Designed to not only be practical and

functional but to enhance the décor

of your home, there is a home-heating

option for every home, and everyone.

GAS FIRES

Providing fast, convenient and

easily regulated heat, gas can bring

a moderate-size room to a warm,

comfortable temperature in about 10-15

minutes. Glass-fronted gas fireplaces

are significantly more efficient than

open-fronted ones, and as gas fires

are cleaner than wood-burning fires

they are favoured in clean-air areas,

making this a popular heating option in

Christchurch.

Like other heating options, most

modern gas fires have a timer facility.

HEAT PUMPS

Heat pumps come in a variety of

options: high-wall, floor consoles,

slimline, quiet ... the list goes on,

ensuring there is a design, size and

placement to suit your needs.

Be smart about your energy use and

ensure you have the right size heat pump

for your space. If you pick one that is

too small, it will have to work hard all

the time, and will use more power than

necessary. A unit that is the right size

should heat your space in 5-15 minutes.

DUCTED AIR CONDITIONING

Ducted air conditioning systems work

exactly the same way as a high-wall heat

pump, in that there is an indoor unit

and an outdoor unit, and by passing a

refrigerant between them they transfer

heat (or cooling) into a room.

Unlike the high-wall system, where

the indoor unit is visible, the ducted

indoor unit is hidden away in the ceiling

space and uses flexible ducts to pass the

heat from room to room through vents

in the ceiling, wall or floor.

CENTRAL HEATING

Growing in popularity in New Zealand,

warm-water central heating is the

even distribution of heat throughout

the home from a central point or heat

source. Warm water is distributed via a

network of pipes connected to radiators

in each room, or looped under the floor

for underfloor heating. Releasing a gentle

heat, no water is actually consumed,

ensuring this is the ultimate in efficiency.

HEAT RECOVERY SYSTEM

Home heating isn’t just about keeping

the house warm; it’s also about

maintaining a healthy home. In the

summer months we are able to throw

open the windows to air the house, an

option not available in cooler weather,

meaning condensation is often an

unhealthy side effect of winter. The

installation of an effective heat-recovery

or ventilation system can help solve

this problem, thereby working towards

creating a warmer, drier and, above all,

healthier living environment.

WOOD BURNERS

When used properly, wood burners

are a great and economical option,

especially if you have access to free or

cheap firewood. You do, however, need

to ensure your fire is clean-air approved,

especially in Canterbury. When buying

a wood fire, consider efficiency rating,

clean burn, emission levels and size.

PELLET BURNERS

Pellet fires have come a long way in

recent years and most are now available

as free-standing or inbuilt, offering a

wider variety when it comes to selecting

the right look for your space.

There are many benefits to a pellet

burner as they offer all the warmth and

luxury of a flame without the hassle of

cutting, carrying and storing firewood.

Made from sawmill waste, the pellets are

carbon-neutral and burn cleanly.

One of the biggest limitations is the

initial cost, with the price of buying and

installing a pellet burner greater than

that of a conventional wood burner. The

burner also relies on electricity so won’t

work during a power cut.

Now is the perfect time

to buy and sell property

If you’re looking for real estate, location

and value are everything. Now is the

perfect time to get into the Christchurch

and Canterbury property market.

Great value for money, better

transport connections, and an easing

in lending restrictions all spell for a

bright future for the city and region,

says Harcourts Four Seasons franchise

owner James Twiss.

“We are really excited that our markets

are active and attractive. The value

opportunity is just outstanding.”

The city and region are a great place

to live, work, and play, with beaches,

forests, and mountains and ski-fields all

within easy reach, as well as a dynamic

urban centre.

Canterbury and Christchurch are a stable

real estate market, offering excellent

buying opportunities—for both new

and established homes—compared with

Auckland and Wellington.

The current market is attracting Kiwis

returning home from overseas, as well

as local buyers keen to find good value

property, and Auckland investors.

Investment in better transport

will benefit the entire region. The

Northern Corridor, which includes the

Cranford Basin bypass, will bring the

city closer to town.

“Kaiapoi is extremely good value, even

now, and will form part of the city,” says

Twiss. “Subdivision land is available,

new buildings are good value, but also

established property, and three and four

bedrooms are well within reach.”

The Southern Motorway extension will

likewise benefit Rolleston and Lincoln,

to the south of Christchurch. Rolleston

is predicted to grow by another 5,000

people in the next six years.

“Access to jobs in the city and Lyttelton

make these locations unbelievably good

value. It’s good firm ground, postearthquake

build.”

It’s now got easier to buy a new house,

thanks to a change in the lending rules.

LVR (Loan to Value Restrictions) are down

to 70 to 80 per cent. “That has created an

even better opportunity for first home

buyers and those looking for good buying

opportunities.”

A shortage of rentals benefits vendors

and investors. “We have seen quite

a few Auckland buyers coming into

town,” says Twiss. “Average Auckland

properties are $1 million. You can access

10 per cent of that for investment. You

have got the ability to buy a decent

rental property.”

Twiss says buyers can have confidence

in the Harcourts brand, which has

been Reader’s Digest’s

most trusted brand

for the eighth year

running. Harcourts

Four Seasons has over

30 years’ experience in

Christchurch real estate.

“We say we’ve got you

covered. Four Seasons

are your local office. We

live local, we support our

local communities, we sell

local and we understand

the local and Canterbury

market. We can attract the

most buyers and therefore

get the most for people’s

properties.”

Harcourts Four Seasons

is the largest real estate

business in Selwyn and

the Waimakariri, with

over 90 sales consultants

operating eight branches:

in Rolleston, Lincoln,

Hornby, Belfast, The

Palms, Kaiapoi, Rangiora,

and Hanmer Springs.

The company also has international

reach. With a trend for ex-pat Kiwis

showing an interest in returning home,

Harcourts has the international network

to help make the transaction smoother.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Showhome a candidate for

Master Builders’ Award

A new showhome in Rolleston by

Clark Bros Construction, is set to

impress judges in this year’s Master

Builders’ Awards. It has certainly

been impressing those who have been

visiting the home.

Clark Bros Construction was

established in 2014 by brothers,

Jarryd and Shannon Clark who take a

hands-on approach to their business,

working with clients and managing

each project, to ensure a smooth and

timely build.

Jarryd says quality is an essential

ingredient and this is evident in their

showhome at The Borough. The

267sqm, 4-bedroom home impresses

from the moment

you walk through the

door. Its warmth begs

you to linger.

A cathedral ceiling

gives the separate

lounge something

extra. A swing glass

door connects this

room to the kitchen,

dining and living

space. A double

sided gas fire serves

both lounge and

living areas, adding

ambience while

ensuring cosy living. A box seat

directly under the fire on the kitchen

side, offers a charming spot to relax,

or sit and chat with those in the

kitchen.

From the large living room, double

stacking sliders open onto a large

north-facing hardwood deck, making

the home perfect for a family or when

entertaining. Large windows ensure a

bright sunny home year round.

The kitchen is generous both in

size and cupboard space. A walk-in

butler’s pantry is tucked in behind.

This has a sink and space for a wide

refrigerator. Not often seen, is the

switching of the sink and cooktop.

A new showhome

in Rolleston

by Clark Bros

Construction, is

set to impress

judges in this

year’s Master

Builders’ Awards.

The latter, an induction hob is

mounted in the centre island with

built-in rangehood overhead. There

is a built-in dishwasher and quality

Electrolux appliances. In the lounge

and kitchen, there are solar remote

controlled opening Velux skylights

with fitted blinds.

One passes through a wide study

nook when accessing the hallway

from the living zone; an area which

might easily serve as a home office.

All bedrooms in the home are

doubles. The master bedroom has

a larger than usual walk-in robe

with fitted cabinetry. There is also a

luxurious, roomy ensuite with doublebowl

wood hanging

vanity, generous

fully tiled shower

and separated toilet.

Lighting illuminates

a tiled feature wall in

the shower itself.

Both bathrooms

have underfloor

heating. The main

bathroom has a

hanging wood vanity

with white bowl,

freestanding black

and white bath with

tiled feature wall and

fully tiled shower. There is also a small

washbasin in the separate toilet.

Built-in joinery with space for

under-bench washer and dryer can

be found in the separate laundry,

along with ample storage in the large

walk-in storeroom (in the hall) and

attic storage trusses in the 6.5x6 metre

garage.

The home’s external cladding is a

fully vented plaster panel system with

cedar and classic stone features. The

roof has long-run corrugated iron.

Clark Bros Construction’s The

Borough showhome is open Saturdays

and Sundays, 11am until 4pm, at 50

Lanner Drive, Rolleston.

Show homes

the ultimate way to shop around

Across the selwyn district, we are blessed with an

extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle, featuring all the

latest in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you ;will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get

a good idea of pricing, discover good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long-term returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check

out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.
