Police nab 48 drivers

for using cellphones

CAUGHT: Police are focusing on drivers using their cellphones in the district, like this truck driver seen on Rolleston

Drive last week.

CHECKING a bid on Trade Me

and looking at an app to

see when the baby needs

feeding are some of the reasons

drivers have used when caught

on their cellphones.

During a three hour period

in Rolleston last week, 48

drivers were stopped and

issued an infringement notice,

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said.

The drivers will pay an $80 fine

and receive 20 demerit points.

Another driver said: “I wasn’t

using my phone I was checking

Facebook,” when stopped and

questioned by police.

Harker said one driver was

seen talking on their cellphone

while approaching a set of

traffic lights. • Turn to page 4

Carter

could

play in

shield

final

• By Chris Barclay

DAN CARTER could front for

his boyhood club Southbridge

in the Ellesmere Rugby Sub

Union’s Coleman Shield decider

on Saturday after the legendary

All Black made

a surprise

appearance in

the semi-finals.

The 38-yearold

was granted

dispensation

to play against

Dan Carter

Prebbleton at

the weekend,

with the sub

union executive approving an

application from Carter’s management

team earlier this season.

Usually players must have made

two regular season appearances to

be eligible for the playoffs but the

board can grant exemptions.

Carter played his first game

of rugby in New Zealand since

2015 when Southbridge beat West

Melton on July 4, a match that

served as a tune-up for his stint at

the Blues. • Turn to page 5

AN IDEA to change Rolleston’s

New World into a Pak ‘N Save

appears to be fading.

Selwyn Times readers have reacted

strongly against the move

since the newspaper revealed the

potential plan late last month.

Foodstuffs, which owns both

brands,

had gained

resource

consent from

the district

council to

make the

change if it

wanted to.

Roger Davidson said the

company was constantly looking

ahead at what growing communities

like Rolleston might

need “from us in the future and

make provision for these as the

opportunities arise.”

“New World is absolutely here

to stay. It has been a part of the

community for 20 years and we

were thrilled to hear how much

locals love their store and we

want them to know there’s absolutely

no cause for concern.

“There are no plans for any

changes to the New World

Rolleston store any time soon

and New World is absolutely

here to stay in Rolleston.”

Davidson said the public feedback

to the Selwyn Times did not

influence their thinking.

The district council granted

a resource consent application

from Foodstuffs for a possible

The possible change was

included in the Rolleston town

property Douglas Marshall said

this was purely for planning

purposes.

“With regards to the council’s

planning for the Rolleston town

centre, it was important for the

council to consider what impact

possible developments nearby

would have.

“No further applications from

Foodstuffs have been lodged

with council. As with any

has up to five years to exercise

this consent.”

The driver was so distracted

that they missed two cycles of the

You are still in control of your

“Using a mobile

The Huritini/Halswell River is

a microcosm of New Zealand’s

sediment from the hills to the

water.

Ahuriri also provides a beautiful

habitat for our native species,

and I strongly suggest Selwyn

residents visit this unique environment

to see it for themselves.

Finally, the water enters

our taonga, Te Waihora, a

traditional source of food to

many.

The zone committee’s

aspiration is to restore the

mauri of Te Waihora while

maintaining the prosperous

land-based economy and

thriving communities.

Paul’s presentation served to

remind us that caring for our

waterways is the responsibility

of all, rural and urban.

Welcome to our new

co-chair

We unanimously decided to retain

our co-chair arrangement.

Since Megan Hands became

an Environment Canterbury

councillor last year, the second

co-chair role has been vacant.

Committee members voted

to make the co-chairs myself

and Fiona McDonald. I want

to thank my fellow committee

members for the faith they’ve

placed in me and welcome Fiona

as my co-chair.

Deciding our future

We are currently working

with our partners in the

district council, ECan and the

Christchurch City Council to

review how our zone committee

functions.

This is because over more

than 10 years of zone committee

work, our role has evolved.

The Selwyn Waihora zone

committee was originally

formed to provide advice on

implementing the Canterbury

Water Management Strategy in

the region.

We helped write and implement

Plan Change 1, introducing

strict nutrient loss limits.

Now that the zone implementation

programme and its addendum

have been put in place,

one of our goals is to monitor

progress and ensure we begin to

see results.

I encourage you all to get

involved with community

“It was disappointing to get

Defibrillator, headsets

A POTENTIALLY life-saving

have access to a defibrillator if

it is needed until the new one

OUR PEOPLE

JANE POTTS

‘Covid hero’ volunteer’s passion

Jane Potts was

recognised as a ‘Covid

hero’ for her work

volunteering as a St

John ambulance officer

during the lockdown.

The Darfield resident

speaks to Devon Bolger

about her commitment

to the job and passion

for medicine

When did you start

volunteering for St John?

It would have been about eight

years ago now. We moved out to

Selwyn after the earthquake and

I started about six months to a

year after that.

Was your house badly

damaged in the earthquake?

Yes, we weren’t allowed to

go back to our house it was so

badly damaged. We were in

Redcliffs at the time.

The garage collapsed down

on to the house. We just picked

the kids up from school that day

and left Christchurch.

We were lucky, we had a bach

at Whitecliffs which had clothes,

food and water so we lived

out there for about a year and

a half.

Why did you decide to join St

John?

I have always been very

interested in medical things.

Before I had kids I worked in a

laboratory doing microbiology. I

then retrained as a radiographer

so I’ve worked in oncology with

that. When I moved, I wanted

to get involved in the Selwyn

community so I thought it would

just be a good thing to do. I

GIVE BACK: Jane Potts has

John Darfield for eight years

after moving to the district

following the earthquake. ​

have always been interested in

volunteering and I figured it

would be nice to get involved

and get to know other people in

the community.

Do you have a call-out you

attended that is the most

memorable?

There was one incident I remember

where a lady had a baby

in the back of the ambulance.

We had the midwife with us

in the back so there wasn’t too

much to do but it was a nice job.

Some of them are not very nice

as you can imagine. Everybody

was really happy and the mother

and baby were fine so that was

really cool to experience.

How many hours a week do

you volunteer for?

It varies quite a lot. Most of the

shifts are 12 hour shifts. I probably

do three or four a week so it

is around 40 hours. Sometimes

more, sometimes less depending

on what else I’ve got on. We

are all volunteers out here in

Darfield. I’m not the only person

who does it, I’m just one of many.

That is quite an important thing

to mention, I couldn’t do it if it

wasn’t for other people that did it

as well. They are all good people

and care about the community.

Do you have a day job?

I just work part-time about

one or two days a week in town

at Lowe Environmental Impact

doing administration stuff in

the office. I am quite lucky I’m

around a lot in the day time to

attend callouts. Some of the

volunteers don’t really get to

have that.

What was it like when you

found out you were recognised

as a ‘Covid hero’?

It was lovely, it was really nice

to get nominated. I thought it

was nice of the Selwyn District

Council, and Selwyn Times, to

do something like that and acknowledge

the people that have

gone above and beyond. It was

really nice, I did feel a little bit

embarrassed as I’m not the only

one who does it but it was very

nice to be acknowledged, yes.

for medicine, wine and fitness

You were nominated for your

work during the lockdown, what

was that like?

We were reasonably quiet, I

guess, over lockdown. Most of

the call-outs were for medical

things because people were not

out and about or on the roads

and things like that. When we

did go to someone’s house we did

have to stand quite far away from

them. We had to ask them all of

the Covid-19 questions before we

could get close and check them

over.

I kept a change of clothes at the

station and would have a shower,

take my uniform home in a separate

bag and wash it as soon as I

got home. We also had to wear

gloves and masks. Driving into

town was great though because

there was no traffic on the road

so it was much quicker. There

were a lot of things we had to

do to be safe. We had to be very

conscious of bringing it back to

our houses.

How long have you lived in

Selwyn for?

We moved out after the earthquake

so it’s been about nine

years now.

What do you like about living

here?

Oh well, everything really. My

ACTIVE: Jane Potts and husband Rob enjoy cycling together in their spare time, and have

competed in the Hunter Civil six-hour mountain bike challenge in Christchurch.

husband Rob and I both like the

fact that it is a lot quieter. I can’t

really explain it. It’s a really nice

community, everyone’s really

close, you can walk everywhere.

It’s just what we like now. We

have a nice home, nice neighbours,

have made really good

friends and joined lots of different

groups. Everyone is just lovely

and very inclusive.

Can you tell me about your

family?

Rob and I have four children.

The oldest is 29 and the youngest

is 24. so they all don’t live

at home anymore. The oldest is

living in London, i’m not too sure

when we will be able to see her

again so that’s not very nice but

she’s coping okay over there. The

next oldest is a boy who is living

down in Alexander with his partner.

Then we have another boy

who lives in Christchurch and

our youngest is in her last year

of university in Christchurch.

They are all great kids we can’t

complain.

How did you and Rob meet?

It’s a bit of a cliche really.

We met at a pub, I was with a

friend and he was with a friend

and our two friends knew each

other. We met and became really

good friends first and then

decided we quite liked each other.

Apart from volunteering,

what do you like to do in your

spare time?

Rob and I are both keen

cyclists, we go biking fairly

frequently around the district,

we like cycling in the hills. We

quite like wine. We go to the

beach, walk our dog Jack who is

part dalmatian and part labrador,

we do lots of things. We are very

busy people and are hardly ever

home.

Do you have a favourite wine?

I quite like red wine, a shiraz is

my favourite.

Discover Hatch

Early Learning Centre

in Prebbleton

Hatch Early Learning Centre is a beautiful

modern and functional purpose-built

preschool which opened in Prebbleton in

February this year with a license for 60 children.

With a focus on high-quality education and care,

they provide a stimulating, challenging, supportive

and nurturing environment.

“Our vision is to create a calm and inspiring,

natural play-based environment that engenders

a passion for life-long learning. The Centre is a

safe space that incorporates natural sustainable

elements in its design while encouraging

exploration and discovery – and supports each

child to reach their full potential.

“Children are at the heart of everything we do.

We provide a welcoming home-like environment

where children have a sense of belonging and

families feel part of the Centre’s community. Our

dedicated team support the whole wellbeing of

tamariki and help them to develop into confident

people who can actively learn, challenge and

aspire,” says centre manager and owner, Meri

Wynen.

Hatch Early Learning Centre has a Nursery

with space for 12 children (3 months - 2 yrs),

a Toddler Room which can cater for a

maximum of 24 children (2 – 3.5yrs) and

Preschool for up to 24 children (3.5 – 5yrs).

The Centre has separated rooms for infants,

toddlers and preschool children with

opportunities for interaction between the age

groups. Learning at Hatch is unhurried to allow

time for conversations and opportunities for

children to learn and grow as individuals.

“At Hatch Early Learning

Centre we have woven

together our strongest

beliefs and values to create a

philosophy that best represents

all that we do. Our approach to

learning is underpinned by the principals of

Te Whariki (New Zealand Early Childhood

Education curriculum), with influences from

Reggio Emilia and RIE. We foster a strong sense

of manaaki (ethic of care) and our culture is

one where families, teachers and children are

welcomed and respected, valued, nurtured, safe

and inspired to grow.

“We provide children with the freedom to explore

and make their own discoveries while supporting

a sense of wonder and curiosity. Our teachers

delight in children’s learning and love to discover

and learn alongside our children, and most

importantly to have fun!

“We also work closely

with schools to ensure

a smooth and easy

transition from

preschool for both

parents and children,”

says Meri.

Children get fresh,

healthy morning and

afternoon meals. Nappies

and wipes are included in

the daily fees.

Selwyn drivers caught on cellphones

Area response manager

Senior Sergeant Dean

Harker talks about police

activity in the district

OVER THE last few weeks

Selwyn police have been

concentrating on drivers using

mobile phones while driving.

During a two-hour period

last week in Rolleston, 28 drivers

were stopped and issued an

infringement notice for using

a mobile phone while driving.

The fine for this is $80 plus 20

demerit points.

Using a mobile phone does not

only involve making or receiving

phone calls, it includes using

any app or device on your phone

while driving such as Google

maps, Snapchat, Facebook etc.

While stationary at the traffic

lights you are still in control of

your vehicle so it is an offence to

use your cellphone.

Mobile phone use while

driving is a recognised cause of

distraction to drivers and is prohibited

under the Land transport

Act.

A mobile phone is a source

of distraction for drivers.

Distraction arises not only from

the physical manipulation of the

phone, but also from the mental

effort and divided attention

associated with using the phone.

While police needs the public’s

help to keep the roads safe, we

have a responsibility to protect

our communities from risky

driving behaviour, including

distracted driving.

Research shows drivers using

mobile phones are up to four

times more likely to be involved

in a crash, depending on their

experience and how they are

interacting with the device. This

contributes to drivers:

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Dean Harker

Selwyn Police

INFRINGEMENT: Police have been concentrating on

drivers using mobile phones when driving.

• Being less aware of what is

happening around them;

• Failing to see road signs.

• Failing to maintain proper

lane position and steady speed

• Tailgating vehicles in front

of them

• Reacting more slowly, taking

longer to brake and braking

more severely; and

EXCUSES

Some recent explanations

motorists have given

police for using their

cellphones

• I was just checking my

app to see when my baby

needs feeding.

• I wasn’t using my phone

I was checking Facebook.

• I was just checking to

see if anyone had bid on

my Trade Me auction.

• Attempting to enter unsafe

gaps in traffic.

Research has shown that driving

while talking on a hand-held

mobile can be as dangerous as

driving at the legal/blood/alcohol

limit – and it can increase

the risk of being involved in

a crash by 400 per cent. Even

more dangerous than talking is

texting and emailing.

One driver who was observed

talking on their cellphone while

approaching a set of traffic lights

and then stopping was so busy

and distracted that they missed

the lights turning to green on

two cycles of the traffic lights

and was unaware of the built up

traffic behind them tooting at

them to go on the green light.

Big turnout

at nitrate

testing event

• By Devon Bolger

A COMMUNITY-LED nitrate

testing day for private water well

owners drew in a big crowd.

The Selwyn Waihora Water

Improvement Mission group,

with help from the New Zealand

Federation of Freshwater

Anglers, held the testing session

at the Springston South Soldiers

Memorial Hall.

Group member Mike Glover

said 120 people visited and

nearly 90 tests were taken.

The tests were $5 each which is

considerably less than a lab test.

“Some people, when we told

them their nitrate level was close

to the government maximum

acceptable value of 11.3mg/l,

had no idea what it meant,” said

Glover.

Some people were visibly upset

when told of their high levels, he

said.

Environment Canterbury chief

scientist Tim Davie said they

support the initiative as it is good

for raising public awareness.

Glover said the group thinks

ECan should be providing free

nitrate testing.

“While it is appealing to offer

free testing to private well owners

in reality there is no such

thing as free testing, someone

has to pay,’’ Davie said.

OPINION 11

Even though a change is

unlikely, readers continue

to react to Rolleston New

World becoming a Pak’N

Save

Liz Goslin – I love the idea

of a Pak’N Save as long as the

supermarket food prices and

quality of meats such as grass

fed meats for example, and food

items are cheaper than New

World and Countdown. Bring on

the change.

Jayantha Gonsalkorale – I

think the plan to remove New

World is a terrible idea. While

Pak’N Save is also part of the

Foodstuffs group, it fails to deliver

the service levels offered by

New World. What is sold compared

to New World is inferior

especially when it comes to fresh

vegetables and meats.

Pak’N Save also sells a very

narrow range of brands and

lacks choice. I have shopped at

Pak’N Save and although I pay

marginally less than New World,

the fresh produce I buy from

New World results in less waste

and they keep longer.

Develop the existing New

World in Rolleston, make it even

more competitive and enhance

the customer experience like the

New World in Tawa, Wellington.

Trevor Longmuir – I find it

very difficult to support such a

drastic change to the local area.

Currently, New World sits unobtrusively

within the shopping

complex.

The need to demolish New

World to accommodate Pak’N

Save could only be for one reason

and that is to replace the current

building with a three possibly

four-storey yellow development

which would back onto the new

Rolleston Town Centre.

I would submit this would not

fit into the council’s endeavour

to make the town centre a place

of relaxation meeting place etc

with a backdrop of a three-storey

yellow building with a stick

figure attached.

Should Pak’N Save wish to

have an establishment in Rolleston

I suggest the other side of the

railway tracks would be more

appropriate.

Rabeendran Subramaniam –

New World grocery prices, very

high, Pak’N Save has so many

items and cheaper.

l would like Pak’N Save to

come to Rolleston.

Alan Harris – I live near Darfield

and regularly shop at the

New World in Rolleston.

It’s an excellent supermarket,

clean, well stocked with a wide

variety of items, some of which I

haven’t seen anywhere else.

The staff are friendly,

professional and go out of their

way to provide an excellent

level of service in a personable

manner.

This all contributes to a positive

shopping experience for me.

I haven’t had the same positive

experience at Pak’N Save

supermarkets to date and avoid

shopping at them.

If the New World in Rolleston

is replaced with a Pak’N Save

then I will no longer shop there.

Pauline Black – Why on

earth would we want to swap

our Rolleston New World for a

Pak’N Save?

It is a always a good experience

shopping at Rolleston

New World with Roy and Lynne

Bridgman great supporters of the

community and very friendly,

Nine-year-old’s

predator-free bid

• By Devon Bolger

THERE IS a stoat in

Prebbleton that should be

worried. Very worried.

Because nine-year-old

Oliver McLaren is on a

mission to rid Prebbleton

of pests.

Oliver has always been

passionate about conservation.

After being donated

a rap trap he started what

he is calling Predator

Free Prebbleton with the

help of his mother Rachel

McLaren.

She said they have

caught hedgehogs, mice

and rats so far.

“We have heard there is

a stoat in the reserve so we

are trying to catch at the

moment,” she said.

A community workshop

was planned earlier this

month for people to come

along and get more information

on trapping but

this had to be postponed

due to Covid-19.

PARENTS

Do you have a son or daughter

interested in horse riding?

✭ Courses every weekend.

✭ 2, 5 & 7 day School Holiday courses.

✭ Private lessons available

Monday to Friday

✭ One day / one night $90 child

✭ Opportunity to compete on our horses.

✭ ½ day lessons and treks available.

The idea for the group

first started when Oliver

took part in the Children’s

University programme.

“You had to go and have

different experiences and

learn different things and

he went to a predator-free

day in Halswell,” she said.

“They gave him a trap to

take home and he loved it.”

McLaren said Oliver

would go and check it

every day to see if he

caught a rat.

The family’s property

backs on to the Prebbleton

Nature Park so Oliver decided

that would be a good

place to lay some traps.

“He contacted the

Halswell group and asked

if he could buy some more

traps and they actually

gave him four more.

“So we started off with

five traps in the park and

started catching heaps

then.”

It did not stop there for

ON A

MISSION:

Oliver McLaren

with the four

traps that were

donated to the

Predator Free

Prebbleton

group he

started. ​

the young conservationist.

At school, Oliver was

tasked with choosing

a project to work on

throughout the year.

Oliver said he decided

to fundraise and get the

equipment to be able to put

traps around Prebbleton.

“The wood has been

donated by ITM and we

got some funding from the

district council.’’

With the donations,

Oliver had enough wood to

make 60 traps.

A local man also made a

stencil for him to be able to

spray paint Predator Free

Prebbleton on them.

The group is registered

with trap.nz so if people

have their own traps they

can link up on the website

and log what they catch.

Young people keeping

Selwyn beautiful

A youth-led project is aiming to keep Selwyn beautiful and inspire people with pride for where

they live.

The Selwyn Youth Council has organised a Clean up the Liffey event as part of this year’s Keep

New Zealand Beautiful clean up week, which is running around the country this week.

Youth Council chairperson Liv Duder says the Clean up the Liffey event on Sunday 13 September,

is part of a fortnight of volunteering that the Youth Council will engage in, helping out at foodbanks

and tree planting.

The Liffey project was one she was particularly keen on, Liv says.

“I go to Lincoln High School and I see the Liffey regularly and it’s often got rubbish in it. We

wanted to do our part, to help our community and make it beautiful—because it is beautiful.”

There has been a rise in volunteering and a sense of community during and after the COVID-19

pandemic lockdown, which the Youth Council is hoping to build on as people have seen the

positives of volunteering and supporting their community, Liv says.

Getting young people engaged in volunteering early is important, she says, and will hopefully

inspire them for a lifetime of giving back.

“I think it’s nice to do things to make our community look better and to support local things and

people. I think it can help take your mind off things and help you feel better. Hopefully, it will help

them take pride in where they live.”

Everyone is invited, but volunteers will need to RSVP at Selwyn.govt.nz/Liffeycleanup to meet

COVID-19 Alert Level 2 requirements. The clean up will be held from 10.30am–12pm, meeting at

Down By the Liffey Gallery (1 James Street). Gloves and bags will be provided!

A moment to celebrate who we are

Joining a moment with a million other people will be part of

celebrations of Te Wiki o te Reo Māori in Selwyn next week.

Selwyn Libraries will be taking part in Te Wā Tuku Reo Māori, or the

Māori Language Moment, where people are encouraged to speak,

sing, listen to and celebrate te reo at 12pm on Monday 14 September.

The moment, organised by the Māori Language Commission, is

aiming to get one million Kiwis to take part. People can sign up, or

find ideas for how to take part at tuku.reomaori.co.nz.

Te Wā Tuku Reo Māori will be among a series of activities at

Selwyn Libraries that you can join in marking the week, starting on

Monday 14 September.

Nau mai, haere mai, ki te whakanui i Te Wiki o te Reo Māori. He

pūrākau kei te haere! (Help us celebrate Te Wiki o te Reo Māori with

a storytime!)

Each library will have an activity sheet with basic Māori activities

available to pick up and will be hosting poi making workshops and

a storytime with waiata (songs) and some of our favourite stories

in te reo.

Staff will also be running the poi workshop in a Selwyn kura (school)

and collaborating with the school kapa haka group.

Libraries Programme Delivery Coodinator Bridie Frost says it’s good

to be a part of a valuable and fun annual celebration.

“Te reo Māori is an official language of New Zealand, so Te Wiki o Te

Reo Māori is a chance to support part of who we are, and celebrate

something unique to our country. The Selwyn Libraries team is also

always looking for ways we can celebrate our culturally diverse

community with initiatives like CultureFest, Diwali and many more,

and Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori is an important part of that.”

Te reo Storytimes will be held at:

Rolleston, Tuesday 15 September 9.30–10am

Leeston, Thursday 17 September 10–10.30am

Lincoln, Thursday 17 September 10.30–11am

Rural water and water race users surveyed on

long-term use

The Council is asking rural water and water race users about their future use and water needs.

As part of long-term planning we’re surveying residents on the five rural water schemes to get a better

understanding of how much water they use. We’re also looking to find out from water race users their

desire to keep using their water race and willingness to pay for this service.

Rural water supply and water race users will get letters over this coming week with further information

about the surveys, which will help the Council in its planning about long-term water use through the

Long-Term Plan.

Rural water users will also be given an opportunity to say whether they would like to reduce or increase

the number of water units they receive.

Users who indicate they would like to reduce the number of units they hold will be contacted by the

Council staff to explain the process.

Foster Park in bloom

Thousands of daffodils are bringing a bright splash of colour to

Foster Park.

The wildflower daffodil garden of 20,000 daffodils planted by

volunteers and Council staff at the park is blooming. People are

encouraged to enjoy the flowers while they last, but please don’t

pick them.

EV charging station construction begins

Construction of new electric charging stations is due to begin next week in Arthur’s Pass and Castle

Hill. The new stations are due to be completed by the end of this month, depending on the weather.

Two new parks will be built on the roadside near the Castle Hill Community Hall and tennis court

Waihora make final

SOUTHBRIDGE and Waihora

have set up a Coleman Shield

final thriller on Saturday with

tight hard fought semi-final wins

at the weekend.

Dan Carter’s surprise addition

to the Southbridge side proved

decisive when he kicked five

conversions and scored a try

in the narrow 42-39 win over

Prebbleton.

Southbridge’s final side will be

named after training on Thursday.

In the other semi-final,

Waihora had an equally close

match, edging out top of the table

Darfield 20-15, at Darfield.

Harry Kirk scored a try and

kicked a conversion and penalty

in the win.

West Melton

Art exhibition to

showcase local talent

An exciting weekend of art and creativity

scheduled for later this month is expected

to attract plenty of interest from across the

Selwyn district.

In conjunction with Langdales Vineyard

and Winery, local artist Lara Pomroy of

Art West will be holding an art exhibition

entitled ‘A Local Tale’. It will include her

works and that of seven other exhibitors.

The exhibitors are:

• Lauren Carmichael, who has created

a short series of works inspired by the

2020 lockdown period during which a

page appeared on Facebook called ‘view

from my window’. This saw views from all

around the world being posted by people

for people, and was a wonderful insight

into the places people live, Lauren says.

• Lisa Tennekoon, who is exhibiting a

short series inspired by her love of beaches

after spending many years living in

Australia.

• Nicola Preece, who has produced her

own stylistic landscapes offering a stunning

almost 3D effect with her heavy use of

media.

• Jenny Pitts, who is exhibiting a series of

avian (bird) paintings depicting stunning

native birds of New Zealand.

• Sarah Barrett, whose works are a

mixture of florals, and landscape offering

lots of blended colour

• Chris Lucas, whose love of horses

shines through in her works

• India Martin, who is presenting a

unique series with a take on colourful pop

art but featuring realism in the foreground

• Lara Pomroy, who is exhibiting the bulk

of her own range depicting a recent play in

portraiture, abstract and equine works, plus

more.

The event will also include a one-off

workshop conducted by Sandy Sharp of

Miss Lily Flowers. Flower Wrangling 101

begins at 10.30am on Friday, September

18 with a cocktail/mocktail making

demonstration and tasting, hosted by

Lauren Carmichael of Langdale.

This will be followed by the 90-minute

workshop, when Sandy will share some

basic floristry skills, provide lots of helpful

hints and guide participants through the

process of creating a seasonal bouquet to

take home. Cost $120, registration via

the Miss Lily Flowers Facebook page.

Following the workshop, participants

will enjoy a vineyard lunch created

exclusively for them by Langdale,

after which they can while away the

afternoon enjoying the Langdale

gardens and enjoying the art exhibition

from Art West Studio.

On Saturday, September 19, Lara Pomroy

will be holding an introductory art class at

her Art West studio. All materials will be

supplied, cost $80 per person. Bookings via

her Facebook page.

Diesel vehicle

maintenance

pays dividends

Keeping your diesel vehicle in good

condition protects its engine life while

avoiding expensive repairs and ensuring

economic motoring.

Phil Thompson at Diesel Fix in

Rolleston says it is possible to keep an

eye on the state of your diesel vehicle by

carrying out some simple checks. This

is also a good idea before committing to

buying a used diesel vehicle.

Phil says if there is a build-up of

soot around the exhaust, this usually

translates to a problem with the engine

combustion or exhaust.

Look to see if any check-lights on the

dashboard, remain on when the vehicle

is started.

Next examine the colour of the oil on

the dipstick. If white or milky, it is likely

there is a problem in the internal engine.

Look underneath the vehicle and around

the engine compartment itself, for signs

of oil or coolant leaks. All are clues of an

unhealthy engine. The radiator’s coolant

should be clean with not much ‘gunk’

in it. If the coolant is contaminated, the

vehicle has issues.

“Diesel engines can be notoriously

bad starters in chilly weather,” advises

Phil who is a qualified Automotive and

Diesel Fuel Injection Engineer.

He recommends trying to start the

vehicle when the engine is cold. A long

delay can be indicative of a number of

issues. It will be wise to get a diagnosis

of the problem, before a more serious

issue results and you have an expensive

repair on your hands.

Also check the exhaust fumes while

the car is running. A light black colour

is good. If it is too thick or a whitish

colour, the engine has a problem.

This might be due to the fuel/air ratio

being out of balance because of faulty

injectors, low compressions, incorrect

timing or incomplete combustion.

If looking to buy or concerned about

your own diesel vehicle, take it for a

test drive. Consider the way it handles,

whether there are any vibrations and

how the steering feels. Also weigh up

how the engine performs. Is there is

any hesitation in the power? Listen for

undue engine noise and look to see if

excessive smoke is spouting from the

exhaust.

Where you have a concern or question

in relation to a diesel vehicle, Phil who

has masses of experience in the field, is

more than happy to advise you.

If your diesel vehicle needs servicing

or sorting out, Phil can take care of

this too. Just give him a call on 0274

368 154 or 03 347 7108.

You will find Phil at Selwyn’s only

diesel specialist, Diesel Fix; located at

821 Jones Road (on the Izone side of

Rolleston). Opening hours are: 8am-

5pm, Monday to Friday, and 9am-1pm

on Saturdays. Diesel parts needing

repair can also be couriered to Diesel

Fix.

Is your vehicle not running to it’s

full potential? Is it lacking power

or blowing black smoke?

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

Thinking of Building?

Come on over... and be inspired.

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.

Jennian Homes Canterbury are proud to deliver quality homes at affordable prices, alongside

our Jennian Completion Promise and a 36 month defects warranty.

Building blocks to a new home

As Cantabrians continue to move forward, when building a new home,

here’s a reminder to pay attention to some of the fine details...

Anyone intending to build a new home should have the

builder’s contract checked out by an experienced lawyer.

If you want to compare building companies, it’s important

to get down to finer details such as how many power points

there are per room, the type of windows you are having or

which paint finishes are included.

Questions to ask builders include:

• Do you have a completion guarantee and how does it

work?

• Is there a loss of deposit guarantee?

• Is the company a Registered Master Builder?

• How are the deposit and

progress payments

administered?

• Are they held in a

solicitor’s trust fund?

• What are the exact specs?

• Are the prices fixed?

• What is excluded from the build?

Do your homework before you decide on a building company

and you will have a less stressful time once the building

process starts.


BACKYARD CRITTERS

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

entomology (insects and other invertebrates).

Each week he introduces a new species found

in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims

to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the

variety of living things around us. Check out the full list of

invertebrates found at www.inaturalist.org/projects/backyardbiodiversity-bugs-in-my-lincoln-section

THERE ARE an estimated

80,000 species of millipedes

worldwide. In New Zealand

the millipede fauna is poorly

known as their identification

can be challenging. However,

approximately 60 species have

been described from New

Zealand, while about 100 species

require scientific description.

Twelve exotic millipede species

are common in urban gardens

and urban forests of New

Zealand, having been introduced

from Europe.

Millipedes are distinguished

from centipedes by having

two rather than one pair of

legs on most body segments.

Their antennae consist of 6-8

segments and contain various

sensory organs, including

receptors for smell, taste, touch,

and temperature. New Zealand

millipede species are usually

2-5cm in length and are brown,

grey or black in colour.

Most millipedes are detritivores

and fungivores, feeding on

decaying vegetation, dead wood,

and similar materials.

Occasionally, millipedes

may feed on living plant tissue

including roots, tubers and fallen

fruit, and can become pests in

high densities. They are very

important in soil ecosystems,

breaking dead wood and plant

debris into smaller pieces, preprocessing

the organic material

for further decomposition

by fungi, bacteria, and

microinvertebrates.

Millipedes lack a waxy layer on

their cuticle, and will desiccate

if exposed to dry air, so prefer

damp, protected habitats.

They have separate sexes and

after mating, female millipedes

lay hundreds of eggs, often

building a protective nest.

The slow-moving and nonbiting

millipedes discourage

predators by rolling into a ball or

tight spiral, exposing only their

tough exoskeleton.

Citrus love full sun

EVERY GARDEN deserves a

citrus tree.

In all but the coldest

districts, citrus trees feature in

backyards. They’re incredible

survivors, but will perform better

and bear wonderful crops if

they’re well cared for.

Where to grow citrus

Plenty of sun

Citrus trees need to be in full sun.

If you’re short of sunny spots in

the garden, grow citrus in pots that

can be moved to take advantage of

changing patterns of sunlight.

Although citrus are traditionally

grown in terracotta, these pots

can be heavy (and expensive!).

There is a perfect solution

– Tuscan pots are lightweight,

surprisingly inexpensive and have

that wonderful Mediterranean

look that goes so well with citrus.

Tuscan pots come in a range

of sizes. The large 50cm size is

big enough to grow almost any

type of citrus tree happily for

many years.

Good drainage

In the garden citrus must have

good drainage. In heavy clay soils

it’s best to put some extra effort

into preparation.

Before planting, raise the level

of the bed as much as possible,

dig in some coarse sand and

plenty of old organic matter

(compost, aged manure or

commercial soil improver).

Feeding citrus

Before planting

Mix some organic pellets into the

soil before planting. It won’t cause

root burn, even if it accidentally

contacts some of the roots.

Established citrus

Feed with citrus food at least

twice a year.

Citrus are very greedy plants

and, because of the extra

demands imposed by their

heavy crop, it’s always best to

use a specifically formulated food.

Occasionally switch to organic

pellets to improve the levels of

microbial activity in the soil.

Citrus in pots

Wednesday September 9 2020 Selwyn Times

GARDENING 25

BOUNTY:

A lemon tree

will thrive in

the sun once

established.

To reduce the risk of root

burn, citrus in pots should be fertilised

with a slow release plant food.

Citrus pests and diseases

Scale

Symptom: Lumps on fruit and

leaves that can easily be scratched

off.

Remedy: Scrub gently with a

soft brush and soap.

Cold damage

Symptom: Curled-up leaves.

Reddish-brown patches on back

of leaf

Remedy: Move potted citrus to

warmer position.

Verrocosis

Raised, warty lesions on outer

skin.

Perfect balance of lifestyle and location

You will never tire of the rural and Port Hill’s views from this picturesque 4.04ha lifestyle block just five minutes’

drive from Halswell. The timeless home radiates a feeling of tranquillity. Extensively renovated in 2013, many new

features were incorporated into the home at this time including a well-appointed kitchen and modernised

bathrooms. A choice of living areas and four patios offer ample space for growing families. A loft on the upper level

represents an ideal games room or retreat for children. Outdoors is a peaceful haven with landscaped grounds,

mature orchard, vegetable garden and chicken house. The land is supported by a range of outbuildings, eight

paddocks with water troughs, native tree shelter belts and fertile soils. Located 20 minutes commute from

Christchurch’s inner-city and offering a relaxed pace of living, this very tidy property is sure to please.
