Election verdict – Labour and Greens

DEMOCRATIC: Travis McLean makes his vote as part of a mock election at Rolleston School.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

• By Devon Bolger

LABOUR’S HUGE lead in the

latest poll has been mirrored

in a mock election at one of the

district’s primary schools.

A Newshub Reid-Research

poll released on Sunday showed

Labour at 50.1 per cent of the

vote, National at 29.6 per cent,

and the Greens (6.5 per cent).

On Friday, Rolleston School

held a mock election in which

22 pupils voted.

Labour took 45.45 per cent

of the vote and in a surprise

move, the struggling Greens

followed with a 31.81 per cent.

National, which has held

the Selwyn seat since 1946,

fell behind to 13.63 per

cent.

And in another surprise,

National candidate Nicola

Grigg was third most popular

(four votes) behind Labour’s

Reuben Davidson (11 votes)

and Greens’ Abe O’Donnell

(five votes).

Teacher Jordan Shallcrass

said she thinks the Greens

received a high number of

votes because of its focus on

environmental and social

issues.

THE DISTRICT council is not

ruling out confiscating yellow

with non-recyclables.

A six month programme to

bins for

late next month.

It comes

after the

plans to take back 52 more in the

next two weeks.

The residents were warned three

times by city council staff to stop

putting non-recyclables in their

bins before they were confiscated.

manager Andrew Boyd said they

will be working to make sure

it does not get to that stage in

Selwyn, but would not rule out

confiscation as a last resort.

Boyd said contamination of

an issue. • Turn to page 4

RUBBISH DUMPING in the

Selwyn riverbed continues to

cost ratepayers.

Earlier this month, a pile of

800 to 1000 tyres were discovered

The tyres have

now been removed,

and will

threaten to undo all the hard

chief Lloyd Clausen said they

were called to the incident on

Southbridge Dunsandel Rd at

lost power due to the fire but it

was restored within an hour. An

investigation into the cause of the

incident is ongoing.

CLAMPDOWN: The district council is expecting to begin

an six-month programme to assess recycling bins for

contamination. ​

Two-pronged approach

“We did see a rise in contamination

in August, but we still saw

83 per cent of our loads recycled

correctly,” he said.

The cost to send the contamination

to landfill from May 1 to

August 31 was $31,000.

“It is good to see the majority

of residents are taking the time to

recycle correctly and support our

efforts to reduce recycling going

to landfill.

“We’d really like to see all

loads of recycling accepted again

we’ll get there,” said Boyd.

Pupils researched parties

• From page 1

“They want to focus on

stopping discrimination, stopping

excessive food waste and

decrease waste going into land

fills,” she said.

“It may have helped that the

local candidate Abe O’Donnell

dropped off stickers for all of

them in the week of our election.”

Shallcrass said the pupils

had a dislike of National before,

during and after the lockdown.

“They often talked about how

they viewed Simon Bridges as

mean because of how they saw

him in the media questioning

the decisions of Jacinda Ardern

and the coalition government

were making.”

When asked what the pupils

thought of National leader Judith

Collins, Shallcrass said they have

not had enough time to get to

know her enough.

“I think it’s more about thinking

National is not kind and the

association that the kids have

made.”

The idea for the mock election

came from the pupils interest in

the Government and politics.

It was set-up like a formal vote

with forms and ballot boxes,

similar to a real election, and the

class even had its own booths for

voting.

“We have done a lot of work

on what makes a good leader

and what things are important

to us for our community and

country,” Shallcrass said.

In the lead up to the vote, the

pupils independently researched

all of the major parties and at

least three minor parties of

their choice and educated themselves

on what then policies are,

she said.

The pupils were given the

opportunity to share what

they found out with others to

build a shared knowledge and

provide opportunities for them

to discuss and debate in a safe

space.

Said Shallcrass: “To

support this I contacted all

electoral candidates in Selwyn

and requested copies of anything

they were sharing with their

community so my students had

the opportunity to see the same

materials their parents may see

before voting.”

Netball, council in talks over sport’s future

• By Devon Bolger

SELWYN NETBALL and the

district council are in behindclosed-door

talks over where the

code will be played in the future.

Last week, the district council

told the Selwyn Times masters

netball games and other sports

were earmarked for new $22.2

million indoor courts facility at

Foster Park, which now has an

official name – Selwyn Sports

Centre. It is scheduled to open in

late April next year.

That prompted

reaction

from readers

who asked if

more netball,

including

senior matches,

Dave Tippett

other than

masters, would

also be played

there.

Netball has its headquarters

at Lincoln, where most matches

are played on the outdoor courts,

and indoor at times in the Lincoln

Event Centre.

But where netball is played in

the future appears to be a touchy

subject.

Selwyn Netball president

Andrea James said it is working

“constructively” with the

district council and will

be continuing to meet with

them over the coming months.

James would not answer further

questions from the Selwyn

Times.

Selwyn Sports Centre manager

Dave Tippett would also not answer

questions about the issue.

Selwyn Times asked if discussions

with Selwyn Netball could

or would or could see all senior

and junior netball games played

in Rolleston, and what financial

costs could be.

Tippett responded with a

statement: “We’re in ongoing

discussion with a wide range of

different sports who are keen

to make the most of the facility.

We can’t say what the details of

each individual sport’s use of the

centre will be before that’s been

agreed. But we will let people

know what’s going to be available

as we are able to.”

Meanwhile, district

councillors unanimously voted

to approve the name of the

Foster Park indoor courts last

week.

Other names being considered

were – Selwyn Arena, Selwyn

Stadium or Stadium Selwyn,

Selwyn Recreation Centre,

Selwyn Events Centre, Selwyn

Indoor Courts.

The indoor court facility

includes eight courts, along with

a 240m indoor walking track

on the mezzanine level and will

serve sports teams from across

the district.

This includes four ‘competition

standard’ courts capable of

hosting local and regional

competitions and four covered

courts for sports such as netball,

tennis, basketball and futsal.

It will also function as a

flexible space for community

events, markets and exhibitions.

PLANNING: Selwyn Netball, based in Lincoln, is in

discussions with the district council about a possible move

to the new Selwyn Sports Centre.

Everything goes

down well at the

OPINION

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Motorists agree on-ramp is difficult

Readers respond to last

week’s article about the

northbound motorway

on-ramp on Halswell

Junction Rd being

difficult to navigate.

Meralyn Stewart – I agree it is

tough to navigate, even dangerous.

Sometimes that lane is full

and I’ve had to go to the next

roundabout and have another

run at it in the hope that it’s not

congested the next time round.

Such a shame that all the money

is spent to end up with this

result.

Karen Struthers – That piece

of roading is diabolical. Really

hair-raising. A dangerous design.

I grit my teeth whenever I have

to negotiate that stretch of road.

Seriously, was that the best

NZTA could do?

Jillian and John Meredith –

We have been concerned about

the relatively short distance to

move left into the lane which

accesses the on-ramp to the

motorway. As it is, depending on

traffic, the move left may be difficult,

dangerous or impossible.

We have seen cars coming from

Prebbleton at the roundabout

choosing the straight ahead lane

at the roundabout instead of

the lane with the turning arrow

so that there are two lanes for

driving around the roundabout.

This seems a safe and practical

solution as long as indicator

signalling is used.

Dorothy Jordan – I live in

Lincoln and went down to the

district council offices earlier in

the week to address this issue

with traffic staff, only to be told

that the roading and roundabout

are under Christchurch City

Council jurisdiction. I have

not yet got into their offices to

complain.

I have travelled through this

roundabout daily for over 20

years when I lived in the city

and taught in Lincoln with no

problems. I now live in Lincoln

and use this roundabout and

motorway several times a week. I

have tried using both lanes to get

on to the motorway. I tried using

the outside lane as it makes sense

to be in that lane to get onto the

motorway slip road on the left,

only to be tooted at by other

drivers. Driving on the inside

lane, when you get round, the

distance is too short to get across

to the left with traffic turning

right from the opposite direction,

or trucks coming through

from Halswell Junction Rd.

Friends missed that turn to

the motorway, couldn’t get

across and had to travel on to

Halswell.

The other day, I was on the

inside lane at the roundabout,

a taxi in front of me went on

straight, across left lane and travelled

on down towards Hornby.

If I’d been in the left lane,

there could have been a nasty

accident.

It has been pointed out to me

to use Marshs Rd, and travel to

the motorway more safely, but

that’s not the point. We should

be able to safely negotiate the

roundabout and access the motorway.

Someone has got their

planning wrong. Let’s hope there

are no fatalities negotiating this

nonsensical road plan.

Richard Mitchell: The way

that the roundabout is currently

signposted requires focus and

commitment from the driver

if he is to get across to the motorway

on-ramp in the short

distance available after exiting

the roundabout.

An improvement would be to

change signage to make it clear

that:

1 Traffic intending to travel

north on Springs Rd and those

wishing to travel north on the

motorway must both use the

left lane at the entrance to the

roundabout.

2 Signage should clearly state

that only traffic intending to

travel towards Halswell on

Halswell Junction Rd should use

the right lane.

What would also help this roundabout

would be if NZTA removed the shrubbery

in the dividing island on Springs Rd as

you enter the roundabout. If you’re not

driving an SUV it’s impossible to see

traffic coming on your right until you are

right at the point of entering the roundabout.

That’s my view anyway. However, my

wife doesn’t agree with my above suggestions.

She thinks that this roundabout

should be replaced with multi-way traffic

lights, which would make the whole

Springs/Halswell Junction Rds intersection

less stressful to navigate, although

I think that this might impede optimal

traffic flow.

Kathy and Paul Cargill – Right from

the beginning we knew it wouldn’t work.

It is very stressful trying to get across.

West Melton park plans released

A DRAFT concept design for the West

Melton Community Park has been

released.

The park will be opposite the new community

centre in the township’s domain

and will include a skatepark.

The draft concept design features a basketball

court, a fort structure and exercise

equipment.

“Consultation with community

committees currently under way to

confirm what the community wants to see

in the area surrounding the community

park.

“Works will start on site once this is

finalised,” a district council spokesman

said.

Nelson Creek is the chosen contractor

and site works are expected to begin next

month.

A budget of $250,000 has been set aside

for the skatepark, plus $299,772 to extend

the domain and $61,680 to renew the play

equipment.

Lincoln comedy event

• By Devon Bolger

LINCOLN’S annual

comedy festival is just

weeks away.

This is the fifth year of

the Live in Lincoln event

which will take place on

October 17.

Festival organiser David

Parlane said it will mark a

step forward for the event

industry which has been

extremely hard hit from

Covid-19.

“Not only just comedians

but musicians, bands, quiz

shows, you name it, they

have all been affected,” he

said.

“The people behind the

scenes who put up the

stages, the lighting and the

sound. We have a lot of

talent in this country they

just haven’t had any work.”

Parlane said the show

will be the fifrst job back in

the year for the people who

are setting up the stage.

The festival will feature

comedian Ben Hurley who

is best known for his work

on TV3’s topical comedy

panel show 7 Days.

Award-winning comic

Alan McElroy, comedian

magician Jarred Fell and

musical duo Fan Brigade

will also perform.

Parlane said he is pleased

to have some certainty for

the show now that we have

moved to alert level 1.

“It is certainly nice to

know that as of right now

the show can go on. We’ve

got really good performers

OUR PEOPLE

WAL SCOTT

Playing with Grizz Wyllie, working

Wal Scott witnessed

the development of

Canterbury rugby

legends Alex ‘Grizz’ Wyllie

and Don Hayes at close

quarters when he was

propping at secondary

school and then at club

level with his beloved

Lincoln, where he is

now the patron. The

retired farmer recalls life

on the land – and on

the paddock – to Chris

Barclay

When you were a boarder at

St Andrew’s College, there was

a third former that was never in

danger of getting bullied in the

dorms wasn’t there?

In my last year (1959) Grizz

Wyllie came into the first

XV which was an interesting

experience. I’d say he’d be the

only third-former that’s ever

played first XV rugby, certainly

at StAC. He was bloody near the

same size then as he is now. He

was certainly feared on the rugby

field, even in those days.

Your introduction to rugby at

StAC was not as noticeable.

The wee school I went to at

Burnham didn’t really have

sports, we had a bit of PT and

that was it. When I went to St

Andrew’s I started off in the

bottom cricket team and the

bottom rugby team. I ended up

in the first XI and the first XV for

a couple of years. It’s all you did.

After tea you were always kicking

a ball around or in the nets, there

was no television.

After secondary school

you played a couple of years

with mates for the Merivale

club seniors before heading

homewards.

Dunsandel were just coming

back into it and I was always

heading back to the country

anyway. I had three seasons there

and transferred across to Lincoln

in 1966 when we went onto a

leasehold farm at Springston.

I’ve been involved all the way

through.

How has the club rugby

landscape changed since your

playing days?

We had quite a lot of fun in

those days. I remember

playing for Canterbury

Country with Grizz and

Ian Kirkpatrick, Hamish

Macdonald, Alister

Hopkinson. There were some

bloody good players round that

era and it’s changed the rugby,

really. I know through my time

playing I either played with or

against 33 All Blacks, we went

through and did a check one

day. Now the All Blacks never

play club rugby, or not much

else actually. I think that’s

why the start of Mitre 10 Cup

was interesting. Guys coming

up against All Blacks is quite

memorable when you’re a young

club player, which sadly doesn’t

happen now.

Did youever try and make a

name for himself against one of

the hard nuts?

Not particularly, but it

gave you a bit of confidence

when you knew you could

pack down against them

and handle it. When you can

hold your own you realise you

did have a wee bit of ability

anyway.

Was there a special coach who

instilled self-belief?

I ended up being coached by

some very good coaches, and

Mark Marshall (at Lincoln) was

right up there. He brought in

calisthenics and warming up and

all that. I notice when you go to

the stadium, the All Blacks or

the Crusaders still use some of

the exercises he got us on to in

1968. He really got us on track.

We came from nowhere to be

runners-up in 68, we won the

(Ellesmere) competition in 1970

for the first time since 1940. I

think we won another five times

in the 70s.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

OUR PEOPLE 11

the farm and now serving as patron

Which team did you

really savour beating back

then?

Southbridge was always pretty

strong and we sort of took the

mantle from them. They were

the main challenge and they’re

back at the top now too. It was

always a good trip. It was tough

and rough as guts on the field,

but it was always good socially

afterwards. We car pooled and

fortunately it wasn’t like today

. . . there wasn’t quite the same

emphasis on drink-driving.

The driver usually had a few on

board.

The attitude to the game is

also more professional these

days as well isn’t it?

I do wonder nowadays whether

they have quite as much fun as

we used to have. I think they

probably still do in the club

scene, but as you go up the

pecking order . . . to be fair to

the Crusaders, Razor (Scott

Robertson) obviously has got an

absolute ability for young men to

turn off and not be all rugby, 24-

7. They know when to get stuck in

and when to relax and have a bit

of fun. It’s got to be a bit of fun

doesn’t it, when you’re playing

sport no matter how serious it

might get.

You played your last game for

Lincoln in 1977 or 1978? Either

way it’s a length of service that

MATES: Wal Scott (left) played alongside Canterbury and

All Black loose forward Alex ‘Grizz’ Wyllie (right) during his

secondary school and representative career.

doesn’t always play out that way

does it?

The biggest change over the

years is the loyalty isn’t quite

the same as it used to be. I

heard a young fella’s made the

Canterbury under-19s but they

want him to play in town next

year even though he’s played

for Lincoln High and plays for

Waihora. That disappoints me

a wee bit. Joe Moody played out

here in the country (for Lincoln)

and got picked for the All Blacks.

Don Hayes was another one, he

was a great Canterbury player

and probably should have been

an All Black. He did that from

Kirwee. This emphasis on where

these kids should go for the

academy, it concerns me a little

bit.”

You helped give Don Hayes,

future Canterbury captain

and stalwart of the 1982-85

Ranfurly Shield era, an early leg

up didn’t you?

I played with Don when I

was finishing. I was captaining

the Ellesmere team and we

were playing Canterbury B

and a flanker pulled out. One

of the selectors rang me on the

lunchtime of the day of the

game. We were playing the

game in Darfield and I said:

‘Get Don Hayes.’ He said: ‘That’s

all I wanted to hear.’ The other

selector thought Don was just a

plodder. Don was only 18 or 19.

We actually beat Canterbury B,

which didn’t happen often. Don

played a really good game and he

never looked back.

He never made the All Blacks,

but Hayes had plenty of happy

memories from playing at

Lancaster Park. What are your

favourite recollections of the

ground?

We (Wal and wife Pam) did

quite a bit of travel overseas and

I always made sure the itinerary

didn’t clash with a test at

Lancaster Park. But some of the

most memorable games were the

old Town v Country. I played in

a few of them. You’d line up with

a Town team with seven or eight

or nine All Blacks. There was no

love lost during the game. They’d

be fighting and carrying on and

when the Canterbury squad was

named they’d be great mates

again.

There was a work-life

balance in your day that just

isn’t applicable to professional

players in this day and age

wasn’t there?

I started farming in 66 at

Springston on a leasehold block.

There wasn’t any thought of

gym work then. So many of us

were manual workers anyway.

Now everyone’s in a gym, there’s

very few manual workers still

about, there’s so much done by

machines. It was pretty tough

times at various stages but when

you’re young and ripping into it

you don’t worry too much. I don’t

how it would be going now doing

the same type of farming, wool’s

worth nothing, It’s changed, by

God it has. I was talking to a guy,

a mixed cropping fella, and it cost

$30,000 for all these compliances

for a right to farm.

You couldn’t convince the

kids to follow you on to the land

after you sold up in 1998, but

there is still a rugby bloodline

being maintained right?

I’ve got a grandson playing

rugby at Durham University

in England. another grandson

plays under-14s at StAC. He’s the

fourth generation playing there

so that’s nice.

StAC won their first UC

Championship by beating

CBHS 35-26 at Rugby Park on

Saturday. How satisfying was

that?

The whole guts of it was getting

those two tries into the wind

(after trailing 20-0). At half-time

I was up in the stand was with

an old mate, a Boys’ High fella.

I thought I’d better move away

from here. I went down the end

with the wind blowing to it, with

all those StAC tries I was right

there. It was a great effort.

A WEST Melton electrician

is now managing one of New

Zealand’s most famous pubs.

Royce Clark, one of six

shareholders in the business, has

taken over the running of the

Vulcan Hotel in St Bathans in

Central Otago.

The hotel is famous for

being haunted by the ghost of

a prostitute nicknamed “The

Rose,” who was murdered in

one of the rooms more than a

century ago.

Said Clark: “I’m going to be

down there quite a bit until

we get some systems in place

but I will still be based in West

Melton.

“I’ve looked after the pub a few

times over the past 15 years or so

when people went away. When

the opportunity came up to take

over I thought why not,” he said.

Clark has run his electrical

business, The Green Machine,

for the last 16 years.

He staged an intervention to

resolve issues between shareholders

Brendan Richards and

former publicans Jude and Mike

Kavanagh after questions of

ownership and obtaining a new

liquor licence led to the Vulcan

closing for a month for the first

time in its 140-year history.

The company, Peyman Holdings,

was set up in 2011 to buy

the building but, at some point

in the intervening years, ownership

had been transferred into

the Kavanaghs’ names, Mr Clark

said.

That come to light last year

when the couple left as publicans

because of Mr Kavanagh’s

health.

Mr Richards told the Otago

Daily Times last week he had

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

wanted to purchase the building

on a lease-to-buy arrangement

but that fell through because of

banks’ nerves about financing

anything related to the hospitality

industry in a Covid-19

environment.

He also indicated the hotel

could reopen soon.

Cue Mr Clark, who said the

Kavanaghs were unable to return

because of Mr Kavanagh’s health

and mortgage payments had

fallen behind due to the closure

and unresolved issues.

In the interim, various “ridiculous

offers” to buy the hotel had

flowed in.

“It is just people saw it was

closed and they make assumptions

it has gone broke or something

and think they can get it

for stupid money.”

That had prompted him to up

his share, he said.

“I decided to pump some

money into it and get it up and

running.”

The pub reopened at 10am

on Wednesday after Mr Clark

notified some locals he had

known for “40-odd” years and

Sheffield Wings

& Wheels is back!

The roar of motors

and flash of wings

in the sky will keep

everyone entertained

at the Sheffield Volunteer

Fire Brigade’s

Wings & Wheels on

Sunday October 4.

The popular event was

postponed earlier in

the year but is all set

to go ahead with a

postponement date of

Oct 11 if the day is too

windy for the aircraft.

The event is a great

family day out, featuring

a diverse line-up

of vintage to modern aircraft and motor

vehicles. On display will also be motorcycles,

tractors, light trucks, model

aeroplanes, helicopters, microlights and

more, from the unique to the unusual,

along with exhibits and stalls.

For the kids, there is an interactive,

maze-like evacuation tunnel, where

children of all ages learn what to do

in the case of a fire. There will also be

demonstrations running throughout

the day, where people will learn how to

put out fires started in the kitchen.

Proceeds from the day benefit the

local Sheffield Brigade supporting

purchases like hand held radios and

their smoke chaser – a ute with a water

tank and pump to go places where you

cannot take a large fire engine. The

Malvern St Johns also benefits with a

donation from the day too.

Organiser Neville Croy is excited to

be finally running the event and says he

is looking forward to the public support

and offers his thanks in advance. He

also welcomes people to bring along

their unique vehicle or tractor to display

as well.

Entry is $10 per adult or $25 per family

on Kimberley Road, Darfield from

8.30am. There is also reminder that the

event is strictly dog and alcohol free –

including small dogs.

THE SELWYN Sports Trust

is on the lookout for new

trustees.

The trust was established in

2013 to promote and support

participation in sport and active

recreation within the district.

There are two positions available

to join the group.

Said trust executive officer

Michael Wilson: “This is an

exciting opportunity and one

which the Trust hopes brings

fresh enthusiasm through new

perspectives.

“The new trustees will join the

existing team of four and will

provide the strategic guidance

and support for the trust’s management.”

The successful candidates will

have experience in and passion

for active recreation and community

sporting pursuits.

They should have a particular

skill or skills that will help guide

the trust and the communication

skills to ably present these,

Wilson said.

“All aspects of the trust’s

operations benefit from and are

shaped through this guidance.”

Vivid dreams the catalyst

for 75-year-old’s book

• By Devon Bolger

SEVENTY-FIVE-year-old John

Ferris was able to achieve a goal

he never thought possible with

the help of a community group

for the elderly.

It was about three years ago

when the Selwyn SeniorNet

member had an extremely vivid

dream which kick-started the

idea for his book, Laura.

It is about an escaped criminal

and a saviour’s journey around

the South Island to find justice

for her.

“Sometimes I have incredible

dreams, if I eat strong cheese

I will. I had this dream about

Laura, a runaway from prison

and decided one night that I

would type it up,’’ Ferris said.

“I’m not very good at typing or

writing but for some reason or

another I kept writing.”

After a long journey, Ferris’

book has now been published.

“You’ve got no idea what a

lift it gave me to have a tangible

copy, I’d never done anything

like that, nobody in my family

had ever written anything like

that,” he said.

Ferris said he needed a push

to get the book published, which

is exactly what he got from the

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Selwyn SeniorNet.

The group is dedicated to helping

people over 50 learn to use

technology.

“I’d started going to the group

and one day a member there, Tui

Heighway, was looking through

my computer and she said: ‘Oh

what’s this, John’s story?’

“I said: ‘Oh it’s a book I wrote,’

and she asked if she could read

it. She started and liked it and

told me I had to print it.”

Ferris was able to enlist the

help of editor and publisher John

Clark to get the book printed.

The SeniorNet group also

helped him with a cover and

photos for the book.

“They helped me in a number

of ways. It was a bit of a team

effort, they came up with different

photos and different bits

of pieces. They’re very nice and

helpful.”

He has not decided how to go

about selling the book just yet,

Ferris said.

“I still need some advice on

selling it and that kind of thing.

“I have been selling a few

copies but I haven’t really arrived

at the right price yet.”

Pink Ribbon walker in

memory of mother

WEST MELTON’S Bevan

Sandison is doing Christchurch’s

Pink Ribbon Walk next month

in memory of his mother

Raewynne who lost her battle

with breast cancer in April 2018.

“I’m doing this walk, along

with my kids, Katie, 12, and

Emma, 9, to remember my mum/

their nana,” he said.

“She was an amazingly strong

woman, who inspirationally

fought the good fight for us, for a

few years after being diagnosed,

giving us some extra time to

grow new memories with her.”

Sandison said his mother was

diagnosed after finding a lump

in 2013. As it was caught early

she was able to get radiation

treatment. The treatment was

considered a success and the

prognosis was great. She was able

to continue working as a secondary

school teacher through until

she retired a year or so later.

“However, very shortly afterwards,

and with big plans ahead

for her retirement with dad, her

world and ours, got turned upside

down when one Sunday morning,

whilst lifting a bag of groceries

out of the car boot, a bone in her

upper arm suddenly broke clean

through,” said Sandison.

“X-rays and scans then confirmed

the worst, that her treatment

hadn’t been as successful

as had thought, but rather, had

metastasised into stage 4 cancer,

having spread to her bones.

“Being given the new prognosis

that stage 4 has no cure, was

literally devastating news, and I

will always vividly remember sitting

there with mum at the hospital

receiving the news. I knew

little about breast cancer, and so

the information made available

from Breast Cancer Foundation

NZ was very helpful in those

early stages as we all tried to

come to terms with things.

“The following couple of years

were riddled with hospital visits,

radiation treatment to shrink

tumours that kept appearing on

the spine and other places, and

various drug treatments. Having

damaged a nerve in her arm when

her arm broke, affecting her hand

meaning she was no longer able

to drive, the resultant trips to the

oncologist became a regular part

of live for the family as we all

chipped in to help with transport

and to attend and support mum.

“Through it all, including some

very tough times, the care and

treatment mum received was

simply amazing, and the new

oral chemo pill she was on, did a

wonderful job of extending her

time, and allowing us to enjoy

some valuable time with her, and

for her to see her grandkids get a

couple of years older, before she

finally had to leave us.”

•The walk will be held

on Saturday, October

17, in Hagley Park, with

pre-event entertainment

from 2.5pm and the walk

starting at 3pm. Tickets

are available online

now atpinkribbonwalk.

•In the Canterbury

District Health Board

region around 400

women are diagnosed

with breast cancer each

year, and every year

around 77 will die.

•Pink Ribbon Walks

are annual fundraisers

which celebrate breast

cancer survivors,

remember those who

have been lost, promote

breast health awareness,

and raise muchneeded

funds to work

towards Breast Cancer

Foundation NZ vision of

zero deaths from breast

cancer.

•With 5km and 10km

routes, the walks are

accessible to everyone,

no matter their age or

fitness level. Supporters

who aren’t keen on

walking can still take

part by signing up to

be a volunteer marshal

Sports excited as

roof goes on courts

Sports around Selwyn and Christchurch are getting excited about the possibilities for their sports

from the new Selwyn Sports Centre

The indoor court centre at Foster Park marked two milestones last week as the roof was

completed and the building officially named the Selwyn Sports Centre.

The eight-court centre with an indoor walking track, rock climbing wall, community spaces and

administration areas, is due to open in early April, in time for next year’s winter sports season.

Selwyn Sports Trust Lead Physical Activity Activator Amy McClintock says the centre will be a

huge opportunity for Selwyn residents and sport in the district.

The trust is hoping to make the centre its home and Amy says the extra space provides more

options for users such as the trust and the district’s schools that currently have to spread events

across multiple parks at once.

“It’s about bringing the community together and the ability to have physical activity opportunities

all year round. It’s a multi-use venue, not just indoor, but being able to use the fields around at

Foster Park. To be able to have one venue for basketball, volleyball, hockey, rugby, football, and

for sports to be able to hopefully come together and work collaboratively, that’s going to benefit

the growth of sport in Selwyn.”

Canterbury Floorball Development Manager Cherie King says the courts change the landscape for

a sport that has struggled to find space since the earthquakes.

It hopes to work with other sports to offer multi-sport days at first, but the courts will also allow it to

expand from just a youth competition in Selwyn and to possibly host regional and national competitions.

“We’ve started talking about competitions previously held in Christchurch coming back. Even our

Christchurch players have said it’s not that big a deal to come out to Rolleston for decent facilities.”

Bringing the taste of Southern Brazil to Selwyn

A weekly barbeque with friends has become business for Killinchy farm hand Marcos Weit and will be

put to the test at this year’s CultureFest.

Marcos will be one of 20 food stalls featuring food from 16 different countries at the festival on Sunday

18 October at Lincoln Domain, 10am–4pm.

Marcos’ barbeque is nothing ordinary. He cooks massive chunks of meat, pitched onto huge skewers

on a large charcoal grill over a pit of fire in true Southern Brazilian style.

“Some people say you have a whole beast in there,” he laughs.

Marcos seasons the meat with a pinch of rock salt and a squeeze of lemon to really bring out the

chicken, lamb, beef or pork flavour.

His barbeques have already proven quite popular.

“My boss one day asks, ‘Can you cook a barbeque for me?’ And

I said, ‘Okay fine I’ll do it’ and then one of his friends asked, ‘Can

you do it for me too’ and because of that and doing it every week,

I thought, ‘Why not, maybe I’ll try to start a business’. So I’m sort

of using CultureFest to put my name out there so people see it.”

Food-lover Marcos has fond memories of helping his Dad with the

barbeque every Sunday as a child back in Brazil.

He moved to New Zealand seven years ago to spend a year as a

farm trainee on a blackcurrant farm in Killinchy, but stayed when

his boss offered him a longer position.

Marcos says he is proud to be part Kiwi and Brazilian and enjoys

playing Saturday football for Selwyn, tramping, mountain biking

and skiing. Every few years, he visits family in Brazil and starts up

the barbeque on a Sunday.

For more information visit selwyn.govt.nz/culturefest.

Swell going to the people

A 10-day extravaganza of events, workshops and programmes will

be on offer next month to help older Selwyn residents live well.

This year’s SWELL has expanded from a one-day expo to a series

of 79 workshops, talks and activities, spread across the district from

12–22 October.

Around 500 people attended the first SWELL expo at Lincoln Event

Centre last year. The aim this year is to make the events easier to

access and provide smaller workshops for people.

Swell focuses on building social connections and helping people

connect with services or activities they did not know about,

Community Services and Facilities Group Manager Denise Kidd says.

Selwyn is a great place to live and we have a huge number of

supports and opportunities available to help people age well,

but they’re not always known about. Covid has reinforced how

important social connections are and we see this as a chance to

help people build those connections, to keep learning and growing

together with their friends, meet new ones and find out about the

fantastic people, groups and resources we have to help us have a

great life here.”

Activities will include everything from sit and be fit, Tai Chi and aqua

aerobics classes, to digital support workshops to learn about using

devices, sessions with Presbyterian Support and talks from The

Happy Gardener Rochel Vogan.

Over 25 clubs from around the district will also be hosting Have a

Go Days taking in a huge range of interests such as embroidery,

walking netball, Menz Sheds, bowls and history walking tours.

Programme booklets will be available in all Selwyn Libraries by

the end of this week, or you can visit selwyn.govt.nz/swell2020 for

more information.

Kickstart your ride this summer

A kickstart to your summer riding fun is on the way with the annual

Kickstart event and support to upskill and stay safe.

The annual Canterbury Kickstart motorcycling event will be on Sunday

18 October at Canterbury Agricultural Park, bringing together our

region’s most enthusiastic riders, trainers and retailers. This year, riders

will have the opportunity to try slow-speed exercises and coaching by

professional Ride Forever trainers, along with maintenance workshops,

retailer and club displays, gymkhana and trials bike demonstrations,

food and drink stalls and prizes up for grabs.

The Council is also offering to cover the cost for Selwyn residents to

complete a Ride Forever course.

Ride Forever is an ACC initiative that aims to support motorcyclists

to upskill for safety. It offers On-Road Coaching—the only nationally

available, certified rider coaching programme in New Zealand. There

are multiple levels of On-Road Coaching to suit all needs. Courses

range from four to eight hours in length and $20–$50 in cost.

If you are a Selwyn resident and complete a Ride Forever course

with a Canterbury trainer, the Council covers the cost. All you have

to do is pay for the registration and once you have completed the

training, your trainer will reimburse you. Kickstart is a great way to

meet the trainers and give it a go.

For more information visit Facebook.com/KickstartCanterbury.

Young drivers are being offered the chance to hit the track and learn valuable skills at Mike Pero

Motorsports Park Ruapuna. The half-day Leading Learners road-safety course covers driver distraction,

emergency braking, skid avoidance and driving on different road surfaces. Attendees also get a one

hour driving session with a professional instructor.

Council Road Safety Education Coordinator Jessica Fairbrass says the $20 course is a great

opportunity for young people in Selwyn.

“It’s a rare experience, with great professional instructors, a lot of fun and valuable road safety skills for

just $20.”

Drivers must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver, who is also fully involved in the day, she says.

“We’ve found it benefits the parent or caregiver almost as much as the young driver as they’re being

reminded and learning new things.”

Leading Learners will run on 6, 7 and 8 October. For more information or to register visit Eventbrite.co.nz

Selwyn population tops 66,000

New figures from the census show the district’s population has topped 66,000 people.

Statistics New Zealand has released its latest revision of population figures for different regions using

data from the 2018 census and post census survey.

The new figures show Selwyn’s population was 66,300 as at 30 June 2019, growing by 4.7% over the

previous year. Previous estimates had Selwyn’s population at 65,600 but this has increased by 700

following the latest revision.

The figures also show that from 2013-19 the district grew by an average of 6% a year, adding around

3,300 new residents annually. That confirms the district among the fastest growing in the country over

that time, a little behind Queenstown Lakes District which grew by an average 7.1%.

Selwyn remains the third largest territorial authority area in the South Island by population, behind

Christchurch City (387,700) and Dunedin City (132,300).

Project to recharge Selwyn

springs opens

A $2.8million project to keep the Waikirikiri/Selwyn River flowing

in dry years has opened.

Mayor Sam Broughton and pupils from Greendale School opened

the Selwyn water recharge project, which will divert water from

the Rakaia River in dry years to the Waikirikiri/Selwyn River. It will

protect the health of the river and Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere.

The project was organised by Environment Canterbury, Central

Plains Water, the Council and the Department of Conservation

with Government funding.

METRO

Wednesday September 30 2020 Selwyn Times

New look for

metro buses

A new sculpture has been unveiled outside of the Down by the

Liffey Gallery in Lincoln. Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall (left), artist Debbie

Templeton-Page, Jonathan Crawford, Cheryl Morrall and Mike Glover

attended the ceremony for the River of Dreams sculpture which is made

of Timaru bluestone. The aim is to acknowledge the history of the area and

the wildlife of the Liffey Stream. The six-month project was made possible

by a grant from the Lincoln Community Trust and collaboration with the

district council which will formally be gifted the sculpture in due course. ​

Science on show at Kirwee school

KIRWEE Model School

is one of the first in

Canterbury to sign up

for an interactive science

show touring the region.

NanogirlLabs, a social

enterprise committed to

making STEM (science,

technology, engineering

and mathematics) accessible

for all, has announced

its return to Christchurch

for its Science in Schools

live shows.

Delivered by female scientists,

the shows support

the New Zealand school

curriculum at levels three

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/backyard-biodiversity-bugs-in-my-lincolnsection

Relatively uncommon moth

IN EARLY September I

photographed a large moth

resting on the outside of

our house.

It was identified as

Austrocidaria gobiata,

the relatively uncommon

coprosma moth.

THe endemic moth has

variable light brown to

black patterns across its

30-40mm wingspan, often

with a dark streak at the

tip of its forewing.

THe species is found in

scrubland and forest from

montane to coastal areas of

New Zealand.

According to iNaturalist,

moths have been observed

in all months except

August.

Larvae are known to feed

on small-leaved coprosma

to six.

They also incorporate

Māori myths and legends

and are filled with

experiments to captivate

students.

Kirwee Model School

has registered for the

November shows but there

are still limited spots for

additional schools between

October 19 and 22.

Said co-founder of

NanogirlLabs Dr Michelle

Dickinson: “We are so

excited to finally be back

in Christchurch. We

know that live science experiments

can inspire and

enthrall students, helping

them to think about how

the world around them

works.

“Sadly with Covid-19

we won’t be performing

in theatres this year but

instead bringing our

live schools show to

Christchurch to inspire

the next generation of

budding inventors and

innovators.”

propinqua.

Pupation occurs in the

host plant leaves or in leaf

litter directly below.

Over the next few months, distinctive teal

coloured buses will begin to appear on the

streets as Metro introduces a new exterior

design to its fleet.

The new livery design is inspired by the

foods and resources shared by early Māori,

the natural landscape that connected them,

and the mosaic of waterways that formed

early travel routes across our region –

represented today by the Metro network.

Environment Canterbury Councillor

Phil Clearwater said that the new livery

simplifies Metro’s network for a more

approachable, user friendly experience.

“We want to make it clearer that this is a

single, reliable, connected network that will

get you anywhere you need to go in greater

Christchurch across the day.

“We found that the numerous bus brands

were diluting the message of Metro’s

connected network, and so we have worked

with our bus operators, Go Bus, Red Bus

and Ritchies, during the implementation

of their new contracts to introduce a single

look across all buses.

“Our changes are designed

to help users right across

the network, rather than

only those travelling on the

Metro Lines – which make

up only five of Metro’s 27

routes.

“We are also preparing for

a future where we will, in

time, grow the number of high

frequency routes. Continuing with the

colour coded ‘Metro Line’ approach would

require more and more colours, adding

complexity to the network.

“The new operating contracts include

replacement of around 100 buses, or half

our fleet, over the next two years, so with

this many buses being produced, this is the

time to update the livery,” he said.

Environment Canterbury is introducing

39 new ultra-low emission buses over the

next months to serve greater Christchurch

bus users. All of these will be built locally

in Rolleston. These will be followed by 25

zero emission electric buses in 2021, and

more new buses in 2022.

All buses other than the Orbiter will

be painted in the new Metro teal colour

to represent our strong link to water, an

essential life-sustaining force.

“The Orbiter will remain in a

recognizable green livery, symbolic of the

land,” said Councillor Clearwater.

The Metro livery will be introduced to the

fleet over the coming months.

FOOD 25

Steak and salad a classic summer pair

You really can’t

go wrong with a

steak sandwich. The

caramelised red onions

add a hint of sweetness

while the horseradish

adds a bit of heat –

perfection

Sliced Steak with

Caramelised Red

Onions

Serves 4

Ingredients

4 steaks, sirloin, ribeye or

striploin

1-2 tbsp. sherry vinegar

2 tbsp rapeseed oil

Salt and cracked black pepper

A knob of butter

2 large red onions, peeled and

finely sliced

150g crème fraîche

2 tbsp horseradish sauce

½ tsp dijon style mustard

½ tsp white wine vinegar/lemon

juice

4 thick slices of bread

120g rocket leaves

Directions

Mix together a splash of sherry

vinegar, a tablespoon of oil and

cracked black pepper and rub this

mixture over the steaks. Set aside

while you cook the onions.

Heat a tablespoon of oil and a

knob of butter in a large frying

pan over a medium heat. Sauté the

onions until softened, this will take

about 15min.

Add in a tablespoon of the

sherry vinegar and a little salt

and continue to cook for another

five minutes until the vinegar has

evaporated. Set aside.

Heat a griddle pan until really

hot. Season the steaks with salt.

Place them two at a time on the

pan and cook for 2min on each

side for rare or until cooked to

your liking.

While the steaks are cooking,

in a small bowl mix together the

crème fraîche, horseradish sauce,

mustard and white wine vinegar/

lemon juice.

Brush the bread with a little oil

on each side and toast under the

grill.

Spread a little horseradish cream

over each slice, then spoon over

the onion mixture, slice the steak

and lay on top.

Arrange some rocket leaves on

top and serve.

Courgette salad with

mint, garlic, red chilli,

lemon and extra virgin

olive oil

Serves 4

Ingredients

4 courgettes

sea salt

freshly ground black pepper

1 red chilli

½ clove garlic

1 handful of fresh mint

extra virgin olive oil

1 squeeze lemon juice

raw peas

Directions

Slice 4 courgettes lengthways as

thin as you can (use a mandolin if

you have one). Grill on a red-hot

griddle pan, or on the barbecue,

until lightly charred on each side.

Scatter the slices over a large plate,

making sure you don’t sit them on

top of each other otherwise they’ll

steam and go a bit limp. While

they’re still warmish, sprinkle

them with a little sea salt and

freshly ground black pepper.

Deseed a red chilli and chop

finely. Finely chop ½ a clove of

garlic and sprinkle the chilli and

garlic evenly from a height over

the courgettes. (Add to your own

taste, but just remember that when

the chilli and garlic mix with the

olive oil and lemon juice the heat

and flavours are lessened.)

Tear over a handful of fresh mint

and drizzle with good extra virgin

olive oil and a squeeze of lemon.

P.S. If you find yourself with

leftovers, try baking any fish fillets

(cod, haddock or bass for example)

on top of the courgettes. Lovely

with steamed rice and seasoned

yoghurt.

Land-Rover Defender joins plush company

I CAN SEE buyers heading

into the Land-Rover dealership

thinking they want a Range Rover

or Discovery, but coming out

with a Defender.

I say that because the latest generation

Land-Rover Defender is

plush, refined and sophisticated,

it draws on the luxury that has

made Range Rover and Discovery

so desirable.

The Defender has always been

based on the post-war Land-

Rover that was characterised by

its aluminium body shell, ladder

chassis, and live axles front and

rear located by leaf springs, a

design which didn’t change much

over the decades.

However, today’s Defender is

a quantum leap, it has a monocoque

chassis, and fully independent

and electric air adjustable

suspension. There interior has

state-of-the-art fitment and ultrahigh

comfort levels, it also looks

nothing like the barren interior of

previous generation models.

Gone, too, is the V8 petrol

engine that characterised the

range-topping variants, although

there is still some association with

the past, the evaluation car was

fitted with a 2-litre diesel engine.

If you think that is a little underwhelming,

there are other engine

options, petrol and diesel sixcylinder

units. However, don’t be

fooled, the 2-litre diesel is up to

par, it is honest and fits well with

the concept of Defender.

When designing the new Defender,

Land-Rover didn’t want

to jeopardise its off-road ability,

it has the drive systems, with ride

height and construction built to

go anywhere and take the knocks.

There are also many, many variants,

the Defender can be ordered

in a multitude of guises, depending

on what you have in mind as

a purchase.

The evaluation car was SE

specced which sits at $114,900,

other prices range from $89,900

and end at $164,900, and you

have to bear in mind that with all

the options and accessories on

offer the Defender can almost be

tailor-made to suit each and every

individual requirement.

Even though the Defender is

engineered for a life off-road, it

has civilised on-road manners,

and because of its construction

it deals to all uneven surfaces,

the Defender simply absorbs the

hits and cocoons the occupants

through the suspension and softly

padded seats. Interior comfort is

LAND-ROVER DEFENDER: Huge off-the-seal potential.

high, the Defender simply glides

as it travels. Sure, you know the

set-up is tough and rugged, but

the way that is translated into ride

comfort is simply amazing.

As you would expect from a large

sport utility vehicle, the Defender

gets seven seats, the rear row is best

for children only, but space back

there is no better or worse than

other vehicles of its type.

Land-Rover rates the twin-turbocharged

diesel at 177kW and

430Nm, the power outputs are

healthy and structured to meet

the demands a 2300kg vehicle requires.

Peak power is delivered at

4000rpm, while maximum torque

with the solid turbo boost comes

in at 1400rpm. Together these figures

promote useful performance,

and beneath the accelerator it has

the feel of solid impetus, there

is eager motion, acceleration is

ushered in decisively.

Land-Rover claims a 9sec run

• Price – Land-Rover

Defender, $114,900

• Dimensions – Length,

5018mm; width, 2008mm;

height, 1967mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1999cc, 177kW, 430Nm,

eight-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage – 7.7l/100km

from a standstill to 100km/h,

it can also complete a highway

overtake (80-120km/h) in 7sec

and pull through to a 188km/h

top speed.

However, the Defender is all

about life off-road and it is a

champion in that respect. I can

report that it tackles humps and

mounds with much ability, all the

time affording the perfect ride that’s

associated with air suspension.

Of course, the Defender gets

the high and low ratio systems of

its predecessors and stablemates,

gearing through the eight-speed

transmission is structured for

every type of journey. Off-road, it

simply crawls in low range mode

while at highway speed the gearing

keeps the engine working in

the area of maximum efficiency –

the rev counter pointing to a lazy

1600rpm at 100km/h.

At that speed it is returning a

seven-litre per 100km/h instantaneous

reading that had the effect

of ushering in a 10l/100km average

during my time in the test car.

These figures sit relatively well

with Land-Rover’s 7.7l/100km

combined cycle claim.

Land-Rover has had a long and

chequered history, as a company

it could have disappeared without

trace the way many other great

British nameplates did when

finances weren’t fluid. However,

once it fell into Indian ownership

through the huge Tata Motors

conglomerate,the brand has gone

from strength to strength.

I’m pleased to report the

Defender is a smart piece of kit

design-wise, and it will appeal to

a broad cross-section of buyers.

While farmers, contractors and

those who bought previous generation

Land-Rovers and Defenders

may look at the newcomer

as being soft and too impractical

for a working role,it is still the

rugged go-anywhere champion

underneath that commands grip

off-road.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Air rescue critical for Selwyn

It is not uncommon to see the red and yellow

Westpac Rescue Helicopter flying over Selwyn.

Since the beginning of the year, 47 rescues have

been carried out in the district, eight more than for

the same period in 2019.

Where once an ambulance attended some types

of incidents, a more proactive approach has led

to the rescue helicopters being sent. This frees up

ambulances while ensuring earlier intervention

with faster transporting times to hospital. Two

intensive care paramedics accompany the pilot on

each mission so medical treatment can begin once

the patient is reached. If within 60 minutes of an

accident or medical emergency, the potential for full

recovery increases by over 80%.

From road accidents to mishaps in the

mountains, the rescue helicopter will likely be

involved and the newest helicopter in the fleet, the

H145 airbus sent first.

“The H145 helicopter has been in service for

a year now. It’s our pride and joy,” says Christine

Prince, CEO, Canterbury Westpac Air Rescue Trust.

Equipped with two Turbomecca Arriel 1E2

turboshaft, digitally controlled 1072HP engines,

the H145 has a maximum speed of 278 kmph and

cruises at around 238 kmph. It has a range of 651

kilometres; can hover at up to 6,096 metres; has a 50

metre cable with a winch capacity of 250kg; a gross

weight of 3,700 kilograms; and is 13.54 metres long,

2.4 metres wide and 3.98 metres high with a rotor

diameter of 10.8 metres.

Backing up the H145 is a BK117 helicopter with

the service manned 24 hours a day. Another BK117,

sponsored by Roa Mining is based in Greymouth

on the West Coast.

From the air rescue purpose built facility at GCH

Aviation’s base by Christchurch Airport, the air

rescue team can respond to a callout within 10

minutes (daytime) and 20 minutes (at night). The

New Zealand Flying Doctor service is also based

there.

Keeping the rescue helicopters in the air is an

on-going challenge for the Canterbury Westpac

Air Rescue Trust. While partially funded by

government, a $6million shortfall. In addition

to GCH Aviation’s significant investment in

the service, the Trust must also fundraise

through grant applications, supporter appeals

and bequests.

Gaining funding has been more challenging

this year, as the Trust competes with a growing

number of community groups for available

funding. Supporters like Paul Johnston and

Andrew Hurst and Suzanne Carter provide

valuable assistance, and ex-mountaineer/

double amputee, Mark Inglis who was once

rescued after a serious accident, is now a

regional Ambassador; the goal, to raise

$250,000 (equating to 50 rescue missions).

“Mark knows what it’s like to be rescued,”

explains Christine.

To help the Trust to cover its costs and

sustain this valuable service, go to www.

airrescue, email christine@airrescue.co.nz,

or call Christine on 021 900 519.

Metal polishing for restoration projects

With limits on movements around the country, many

people have turned their attention to long awaited

restoration projects. Older cars, motorcycles and

buildings are all being given new lease of life.

Where vehicle parts or house fittings have become dull,

scratched, corroded or tarnished, these can be restored

with sandblasting and metal polishing, and Escort Metal

Polishers are experts in the field. Owners Eric and Fred

Williams, each have 45+ years in the industry, giving

them massive knowledge, skill and experience in metal

polishing and sandblasting.

Whether it is stainless steel, chrome or brass, there is a

strong likelihood the team at Escort Metal Polishers can

sculptures featured outside the Christchurch Art Gallery,

many of the fittings at the new Christchurch Hospital and

Christchurch Justice Precinct, and fixtures like the brass

kick plates, stair banisters and hand rails in the recently

restored Christchurch Town Hall.

Fred says almost any metal part on a car or motorcycle

can be polished or sandblasted. They specialise in mag

wheels, manifolds, covers, pipes, alloy trims, vehicle parts,

motorcycle frames and the stainless steel around a vehicle.

Parts are left with a smooth, bright finish. Scratched or

damaged metal on a vehicle can be rejuvenated and they

organise re-chroming for bumpers, grills. They also strip

GARDENING

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Summer veges can be safely planted

AS OUR recent weather has

served to prove October is

sometimes an unsettled month,

but by the end of the month,

temperatures have usually risen

and the growth in the garden

abounds.

There are a million tasks to do

in the garden; all enjoyable, especially

the planting of the summer

vegetable garden.

It’s probably the most active

month of the year in the vegetable

garden. Prepare the area well by

adding in new compost in significant

quantities.

All summer vegetables can

now be safely planted, including

courgettes/zucchini, cucumbers,

beans, beetroot, carrots, celery,

corn, leeks, lettuce, melons,

onions, radish, pumpkin and

tomato.

To avoid vegetables all maturing

at one time, stagger your

plantings as continuous cropping

and supply is much preferable. As

plants become established, apply

light side dressings of vegetable

fertiliser to help develop strong

healthy plants. Water young

plants regularly and deeply to

encourage a strong root system.

The last of winter flowing annuals

can now be removed and the

soil prepared for new plantings.

As with the vegetable plot, add

plenty of compost to the soil and

dig it over well to create a fine

tilth (breadcrumb like texture)

ready for planting. Summer flowering

annuals can include alyssum,

asters, cornflowers, californian

poppy, cosmos, livingstone

daisy, lobelia, marigolds, nemesia,

petunias, portulaca, phlox, salvias,

sweet peas and zinnias.

In warmer areas, harvest seminole

tangelo (which will finally be

ripening) and grapefruit. The first

application of fruit tree fertiliser

can now be made. Repeat again in

six weeks’ time.

Loquarts are now ripening,

filling a gap in the harvesting fruit

calendar. Kiwifruit and grape

vines are now growing vigorously.

Trim growth where it is

not required. Mulch trees with

crushed bark as the soil warms up

to prevent weed growth and aid

water retention during the hot,

dry summer months.

GROWTH:

For a

continuous

supply of

vegetables,

stagger

planting. It

is now safe

for corn to

go into the

ground.

Early varieties of strawberries

will begin to ripen towards the

end of October. Check plants

for any signs of grey mould

(botrytis). Remove any infected

leaves and ensure there is enough

pea straw, mulch or hay around

plants to keep developing berries

clean and healthy

It’s a busy time for lawn lovers.

The first application of lawn fertiliser

can now be made; hopefully

at the same time as spring rain,

otherwise water it thoroughly

after applying.

Sow seed where there are bare

parts of the lawn, add new topsoil

before broadcasting the seed and

lightly water to activate germination.

Mow your lawn regularly to

encourage vigorous growth.

Classical winter flowering

shrubs such as rhododendrons,

camellias and azaleas are now

coming to the end of flowering.

They may require some minor

pruning before they break into

spring growth. Apply fertiliser

to these plants in late October

and apply mulch all around your

shrubs.

Now is a great time to plant

containers and pots with summer

flowering annuals such as

petunias which are a favourite

to provide colour throughout

summer months. Start your new

seasons display by removing

existing potting mix, thoroughly

cleaning the container before

refilling with new container mix

and planting.

In the herb garden, remove any

old plants from the previous season

herb garden. Plant out new

seasons herbs, including those

that are frost tender such as basil.

Clip your herb plants frequently

for culinary use and to encourage

fresh young growth.

RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

ACT 1991 CHRISTCHURCH

DISTRICT PLAN

PROPOSED PLAN CHANGE 4

SHORT-TERM ACCOMMODATION

Christchurch City Council has proposed Plan Change 4 to the District Plan.

Proposed Plan Change 4 – Short-term Accommodation

Proposed Plan Change 4 includes the following changes:

(a) change the resource consent requirements for visitor

accommodation in a house or unit in most residential, rural and

papakāinga zones, particularly where a host is not living there.

(i) In residential zones, instead of requiring a Discretionary activity

resource consent for unhosted visitor accommodation in a

residential dwelling, the changes would require a Controlled activity

resource consent for 1-60 days, Discretionary for 61-180 and Non

complying for more than 180 days.

(ii) In rural zones, unhosted visitor accommodation in a residential

dwelling would be a permitted activity for the first 180 days.

(iii) For hosted visitor accommodation in a residential dwelling,

additional standards would also apply limiting late-night arrivals

and departures and the size of functions.

(b) amend other rules to enable a residential dwelling to be used for

visitor accommodation for a limited number of days per year without

triggering commercial parking and vehicle access requirements.

(c) amend the objectives and policies for residential zones so

commercial-type visitor accommodation is primarily directed to

commercial areas.

(d) update the “residential activity” definition to clarify the status of

home exchanges, house-sits and serviced apartments.

(e) change rules for visitor accommodation associated with farms or

recreation/conservation activities (e.g. huts/tents around cycling

and walking tracks), managing the sizes, types and locations of

structures used in some situations.

(f) for heritage buildings protected under the District Plan, a resource

consent would be not required to accommodate up to ten guests if a

host is living there. Unhosted visitor accommodation for up to ten

guests would be a ‘Controlled activity’ without night limits.

(g) in the Accommodation and Community Facilities Overlay, limit

the scale of activities secondary to visitor accommodation (e.g.

conference facilities, gyms restaurants etc.) to be more consistent

with the existing rules in the Residential Visitor Accommodation

Zone and most commercial zones.

More information

The proposed Plan Change 4 and assessment required under section 32 of the

RMA, together with any supporting documents, can be viewed at any of the

Council’s service centres or libraries or on the Council website:

www.ccc.govt/planchange4.

Submissions

Anyone may make a submission on Plan Change 4. You can make a submission

via our online form at ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay or collect a hard copy form

from Civic Offices, 53 Hereford Street, the Council’s service centres or libraries,

or download a copy from www.ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay. For details of your

nearest service centre or library please visit ccc.govt.nz/contact-us or phone

03 941 8999.

Submissions must be received before 5pm on Thursday 22 October 2020.

Process for public participation

Once all submissions have been received, they will be made publicly available.

Further submissions will then be invited, allowing certain persons and

organisations to support or oppose any of the initial submissions.

A Council hearing will then be held to consider all submissions, and decisions

will be made following this hearing. Anyone who has made a submission has

the right to appeal the decision to the Environment Court.

The objectives, policies and rules proposed in this Plan Change will have no

legal effect until the Council gives public notice of its decision on the Plan

Change and matters raised in submissions or the Environment Court makes an

order which grants any rule immediate effect (RMA s86B).

If you’d like more information, please contact the City Planning Team at

941-8999 and ask to speak to Alison McLaughlin, Senior Policy Planner,

about Proposed Plan Change 4 or email us at PlanChange@ccc.govt.nz.

Front

Dear residents,

With advance voting opening for the 2020 General Election, I’m taking the

opportunity to seek your support in electing me as your next Member of

Parliament.

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and the economic and social crisis it has

caused, Selwyn needs strong, competent representatives who can cross the

rural-urban boundary, who have the capability to lobby for projects that will

rebuild our economy, put our people back in jobs, fund our medical centres, build

new schools and help support our families.

As a candidate I am doing what I can across Selwyn to advocate for businesses,

communities and families.

I am so ambitious for Selwyn and for Canterbury - I truly believe that this region

will lead New Zealand’s economic recovery – and I seek your support in ensuring

that if I make it to Parliament later this year, I can help enable that.

Take care during these unprecedented, worrying times – and please do reach

out should you need any help at all.

Selwyn is a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family thanks to the opportunities

provided by our traditionally strong local economy - but we are facing big challenges

caused by growing unemployment, under-investment in critical infrastructure, skills

shortages and a Labour-led coalition without any plan or capability to reboot our

economy.

I have the experience to be your strong local advocate. I’ve spent a number of years

working for Rt Hon Sir Bill English under the last National government and, if you elect

me, I will work tirelessly to support Selwyn to grow and thrive.

If I have the privilege of

being elected as your next

Member of Parliament, I will:

In my most recent role as a trade

specialist at New Zealand Trade and

Enterprise I’ve been given some real

insights into how business owners

in this electorate are coping in the

current economic environment.

I care deeply about the sustainable

conservation of our natural

environment and, in my spare

time, spend as much of it as I can

in Selwyn’s great outdoors hiking,

running, riding and skiing.

9 Lobby for improved phone and internet

connectivity in the most remote parts of

our electorate like the Rakaia gorge

9 Work with local authorities and

community groups to support

projects and initiatives to ensure the

preservation and conservation of our

natural environment, and mitigate the

impacts of climate change

9 Fight for farmers impacted by punitive

regulations and ensure farming

businesses are backed by science and

best international practice to help

farm their way to better environmental

outcomes

9 Support local businesses by pushing for

Government-funded construction and

infrastructure projects

9 Lobby for our region’s rapidly growing

schools to get critical investment

needed to cater for demand

9 Support the growing need for mental

health services in our rural and urban

communities


40 Selwyn Times Wednesday September 30 2020

Back

Strong team. More jobs.

Better economy.

Our country is in the midst of the biggest economic challenge in 160

years.

With a recession looming, large budget deficits, extensive job losses,

and the threat of continued hardship, Kiwis need a team with real

world experience that can deliver results.

Only a National Government has the plan to enable and encourage

the investment we need to generate jobs and keep taxes low, while

getting on with ambitious infrastructure builds that will drive growth

and support our families and communities now and into the future.

If that doesn’t grab your attention the value on

offer here certainly will.

The feeling of spaciousness is evident

throughout the house and the layout creates a

very pleasing and convenient place in which to

live and enjoy.

Bi-fold doors from both the kitchen and lounge

provide seamless access to the sunny outside and

minimal enhancement outdoors could result in an

even more impressive indoor/outdoor courtyard

environment.

Buying a lifestyle block

City life getting you down? Dreaming of

living in the country, where you ‘commute’

from the breakfast table to a barn or your

home office? It might look like an easy life

but buying a lifestyle property can be a

complex business.

While living in the country has much

to recommend it, you need to do more

preparation for buying a place there than

buying a pair of gumboots and comparing

the merits of ride-on mowers.

We recommend comprehensive due

diligence when buying any kind of property,

but rural ones come with a whole extra set

of things to think about compared to buying

a straightforward stand-alone home in

town”.

While it’s tempting to focus on the dream

wish list for your bucolic bolt-hole, but you

should also compile a list of issues to be

aware of (and people who can help you learn

about them).

“If the property you like is being sold by

a licensed real estate agent, remember that

you can ask them anything you like about it”.

“Rural real estate agents have special

skills in this area and they’ll be able to help

you figure out what information you need

to make a well-informed decision. It’s also

a good idea to get your lawyer onboard

early to check titles, consents and other

information that you gather in the process.”

It might feel like you’re getting away from

it all when moving out of town, but rural

developments can be subject to rules that

restrict what you can do. REA recommends

getting your lawyer to check if there are any

covenants on the property that might have

an impact on a future business you may

run there, or any planned building projects.

You don’t want to invest in an alpaca herd

for your new dream property only to find

that it’s not allowed to carry any livestock.

Similarly, it would be tough to discover that

your subdivision plans are not permitted by

council rules.

Be aware that there may be tax

implications if you’re planning to use the

property as a business.

“In general, if it is currently being used for

a business that is tax-registered – whether

that’s selling organic eggs, grazing stock

or running a B&B – then the seller will

probably add GST to the price. This means

you’ll pay an extra 15 per cent, unless you

are also registered for GST. Ask your lawyer

or accountant to check if the house or any

other buildings on the property are GSTexempt.

They will also be able to advise you

on whether you need to be GST-registered.”

A good place to start when trying to

figure out what tax obligations might

attach to your purchase of the property

is Inland Revenue’s property tax decision

tree (available at http://www.ird.govt.

nz/property/property-terms-and-tools/

property-decision-tree/), but keep in mind

that it is always best to seek professional

advice before you make a decision.

Rural properties (like all properties) can

also have easements on the title that relate to

access, water or power. You should ask your

lawyer to check the title and work out what

the easements are, and how they will have an

impact on your rights and responsibilities as

an owner.

“For example, if the title allows a

neighbour access to a piece of their land

through your property, do you have any

right to limit the type and frequency of that

access if you buy it?”

Be aware too that there may be ‘unofficial’

easements operating; the incumbent

owners may have an informal arrangement

with their neighbours, but this may not

remain when the property passes into new

ownership.

Things that we take for granted when

living in urban environments, like water,

sewage and access, can require more

involvement in rural areas. Check the water

sources for the property – if it has its own

bore, are there limits on the amount of

water you can draw from it? What is the

process for ensuring it is safe to drink? What

happens to wastewater and sewage? Are you

prepared for life with a septic tank? Will the

current owner ensure the tank is empty as a

condition of sale?

When it comes to access, will you

share a private road or right of way with

other properties? What will be your

responsibilities and potential costs for

maintaining it? Don’t forget that your

neighbours may be involved in unglamorous

activities at ungodly hours – check the

zoning rules for nearby properties if you’re

worried about noise, smells or traffic. You

might think it’s lovely to have stock grazing

out the window, but are you ready for a

milk tanker driving past every morning? Be

aware that the LIM will not always alert you

to any pending or current NZTA decisions

regarding local highway linkages that often

divert traffic away from urban centres in

favour of immediate rural areas on the town

boundary. Check with NZTA if you think

your property could be affected by road

changes.

Like all property purchases, buying a place

in the country requires careful, objective

consideration.

“There are lots of great things about

living on the land, but it’s best to be realistic

about it. You don’t want to be like the

former townie I met a few weeks ago, who

mournfully told me that their lifestyle

block had become “a life sentence”. Do your

homework and you’re far more likely to live

happily ever after in rural bliss.”

Making the most of

show home viewing

Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for

features and fittings to put into a new home. It can also be helpful

for getting a spatial feel for other aspects of a house design.

Before heading out for a day’s

viewing, conduct an internet search.

identify the locations of show home

villages and the types and sizes of the

various building company’s homes on

display, noting down the square metre

size of each home.

if wanting a high end, architectural

design, focus on the larger homes that

have desirable design features. if at the

entry or middle level of the market,

earmark homes that fit this taking in

other show homes for extra ideas.

allow sufficient time when visiting each

show home, asking for a floor plan that

has room sizes before walking through.

Check also the floor to ceiling height

of the rooms and consider how this feels

and whether you prefer a cosier feel with

the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or

more spaciousness created with a higher

stud or exposed ceiling beams.

if doors and windows are taller than

normal, weigh their effect in creating

a more luxurious and spacious feel,

against potential inconvenience for small

children, cleaning and maintenance.

on entering each room, take account of

how much furniture is in each room and

whether there is sufficient space for the

furniture you will have in the room and

the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look

too, at storage capacity throughout the

home and whether this is adequate.

in the living areas, consider whether a

lounge separated from the family living

room or a true open plan kitchen, dining,

living/lounge area is preferable, and

compare internal kitchens with those that

have natural light.

Look too at the layout of

the kitchen: whether to have

an island sink or breakfast

bar where a newspaper can

be read, and children can

sit and draw or complete

homework; the positioning

of appliances; and how

important having a pantry is.

for the little rooms, equate

space and features desired

with that needed, especially

if the budget needs to be

sharp. it might be nice to

have a large walk-in shower

with double shower heads

but is this just fanciful and

will the extra cleaning annoy you long

term. a laundry in the garage is also more

economical though a separate laundry

may be handier.

Bring the garage size into the equation

also. as these vary considerably, assess

the actual measurements of each garage

viewed comparing this with the space

needed for your motor vehicles and other

items to be stored there. if a good number

of toys will be housed there, it may be

sensible to increase the size of this area of

the home.

By imagining what you need, want and

will have in your new home, you will be in

a better position to confidently choose a

design that works for you.

SELLING YOUR HOME?

Potential buyers are likely to be living in your

neighbourhood, it’s an area that they already love and

are actively seeking to stay in. That’s why it makes sense

to advertise your property in the Selwyn Property Guide.

We are the only media

that reaches across the

entire Selwyn District.

Four things you MUST

do before buying a home

Buying a home is a big deal. It’s likely to be the most expensive thing you buy,

and it can be a complicated legal process. It might be tempting to take a few

shortcuts, but failing to do things properly could cause more problems later.

Here are our top four tasks for home

buyers.

1. Research the property

The real estate agent selling the

property acts on behalf of the seller,

however they are also required to

tell you everything they know about

the property. They must respond

professionally to all your enquiries and

not withhold any details. Remember

that you still need to do your own

due diligence. That means getting a

title search so you can find out all the

facts about the property’s ownership,

boundary and access, as held by Land

Information New Zealand (LINZ). It’s

a good idea to get a Land Information

Memorandum (LIM), which shows

information held by the local council

about the property and land. For

valuable feedback on the property’s

condition, get a report done by

an inspector who has professional

indemnity insurance and carries out

their work in accordance with the New

Zealand Property Inspection Standard.

Although this all costs money, it will

save you more in the long term. Sellers

may occasionally provide some of this

information for you. If this happens,

check that it is up-to-date.

2. Get legal advice

Buying property is expensive, and it

can cost even more if something goes

wrong. That’s why it’s important to get

legal advice before you sign anything.

A lawyer will handle all the paperwork

involved in the process, including the

title search, and offer impartial advice.

If you don’t have a lawyer, the New

Zealand Law Society can help you find

one at propertylawyers.org.nz.

3. Understand the sale process

There are several methods of buying

and selling property, for example,

tender or auction. It’s important to

understand the process for the property

you are buying. Practices can vary

between agencies so make sure you

confirm details with them. The Home

Buyer’s Guide at buyingahome.reaa.

govt.nz has more helpful advice.

4. Read the sale and purchase

agreement and understand what it

means

The sale and purchase agreement

is your contract with the seller. It is

crucial to read it very carefully and get

legal advice before you sign. You can

negotiate the terms and conditions of

an agreement, but once you sign it,

there’s no going back.

Buying a property with trees

17

enjoyment of their land, which means

that you can’t let your trees become a

problem at their place (and vice versa).

If your neighbours have trees that are

giving you grief, think carefully before

swinging an axe or chainsaw. Legally, you

are entitled to trim any branches or roots

from a tree (or large shrub, or plant) that

encroach on your property unless they

are protected, in which case you may

need resource consent first. However, for

the sake of being a decent human being,

it’s a good idea to talk to the tree’s owners

first. Don’t be tempted to take matters

into your own hands and poison the tree,

or trespass onto a neighbour’s property

to chop parts of it off. One way to resolve

the situation is to seek advice from a

professional arborist. Getting an expert

to prune the tree in a way that doesn’t

destroy it completely will be far cheaper

than engaging a lawyer.

In the worst-case scenario, if you can’t sort

out tree issues with a chat over the fence

or the aid of an arborist, it may be time to

seek help from the Disputes Tribunal or

the District Court. If the trees are causing

a nuisance, such as blocking views and/

or light, and you’re unable to come to an

agreement with the neighbour, you can

apply to the District Court for an order to

get the neighbour to trim or remove the

tree.

For independent advice on buying or

selling property, check out settled.govt.

nz.

Whoever said ‘the best time to plant a tree

was 20 years ago’ obviously never dealt

with overhanging branches, wayward

roots or grumpy neighbours. As anyone

who lives in a leafy area will tell you, trees

can cause no end of bother. Trees can

block views, damage fences and interfere

with power lines. Roots can disrupt pipes,

branches can reduce sunlight availability,

leaves can block gutters and windfall fruit

can attract rodents. It’s a wonder people

ever plant them!

These problems are often caused by wellmeaning

property owners who plant

trees without thinking about how big

they will grow. By the time a tree is wellestablished,

it may be already wreaking

havoc both overhead and underground.

Overhanging branches may present

obvious hassles, but tree roots are usually

out of sight, out of mind until they start

to snaking their way into retaining walls,

foundations or drains (at which point they

become difficult to ignore and expensive

to re-route).

If you own a property, you are allowed

to do whatever you like to your trees,

within the bounds of the law that says

you have the right to the ordinary use and

enjoyment of your land. This is subject

to any protection that may apply to your

trees. If they’re protected (for example,

because they are historic, considered

to be significant or needed to prevent

erosion), you may need to get resource

consent before doing anything to them.

Remember that you can’t unreasonably

interfere with your neighbours’ use and

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

What build requirements are there?

Explore what a new stage will look like.

Buying in a subdivision

Section availability is mostly in new

housing estates and the district generally

has a number to choose from, especially in

Rolleston and Lincoln.

Factors influencing section choice will be:

the distance from your workplace, ease of

travelling, services available, size and price

of available sections, and where you would

like to live.

Ground conditions may also be a

consideration. In Selwyn, the land

is generally good for building with

only a standard 364 foundation often

required. Many people are choosing a

RibRaft foundation as it offers seismic

strengthening and may work out more

economical.

A factor which should be high on your

list should be the covenants a developer has

in place and whether these will present any

issues for you.

Any new housing subdivision is likely

to have covenants stipulating what can

and cannot be constructed, in terms of

minimum and maximum house size on

a given section, and aesthetic features

like the roof pitch, acceptable claddings,

landscaping and what is permitted on view

from the street.

The covenants will be supplied with the

Purchase and Sale Agreement. Read these,

asking your lawyer for advice and checking

with your builder to ensure these can be

met before signing on the dotted line.

Before finalising your house plan

with your builder and building consent

application is lodged with Council, send

this and a landscape plan to the developer

for approval. This will avoid costly changes

or problems down the line. There may

be a charge associated with Developer’s

Approval or a refundable bond may be

incurred. This process is put in place to

protect the overall look and integrity of

the housing estate and ensure any damage

incurred during construction is put right.

Certain covenants may seem annoying

however, they protect the environment you

are buying into and can be accommodated

with good design.

The standard of builds in respective

subdivisions may vary from smaller

economic housing to larger sections and

homes. There may also be variations in

the features in each subdivision such as

the street width, number of children’s play

areas, walkways and beautification.

Where you are purchasing off a plan for

a section in a new stage of a subdivision,

ask questions so you appreciate what the

area will ultimately look like. Doing your

homework will help give you surety that

what is proposed will happen. This includes

when title is due, something which can be

slowed by Council consent requirements or

the weather delaying earthworks.

Closeness to schools, shops and public

transport may also be considerations,

especially if you want your children to have

independence by walk to school, a park

or sporting activities. Consider how each

subdivision might suit your lifestyle.

Consider closeness to facilities.

What parks are proposed?

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.
