Contentious

on-ramp

a late

addition to

motorway

project

• By Matt Slaughter

THE CONTENTIOUS on-ramp

near Halswell Junction Rd was

never considered in the original

Southern Motorway design plan,

it can be revealed.

The on-ramp continues to draw

criticism from Selwyn Times readers

who say trying to get across to

it is difficult and at times dangerous.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency says the on-ramp was

added to the design after a

request by the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board,

and industry in the area.

But the community board

chairman Mike Mora agrees

with other motorists the on-ramp

design is putting motorists at

risk.

“You’ve got to change lanes

two or three times sometimes to

navigate it, and it just seems a bit

over-complicated. Every move

can have an adverse effect or put

people at risk,” he told the Selwyn

Times.

“IT’D BE THE worst on-ramp in all

of New Zealand.”

Not my words but ones from a

savvy individual I bump into every

now and then.

He, who shall remain nameless,

can be a forthright chap at times and

he certainly knows his stuff.

When it comes to the

Southern Motorway on-ramp

near the Halswell Junction Rd

roundabout the Selwyn Times

has been reporting on in recent

weeks, he is probably absolutely

correct.

We have more on this saga on

page 1 today, where we reveal the

on-ramp was a late addition to the

Halswell Junction Rd project after

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board raised the need

for one.

And now,

its chairman

Mike Mora

has gone

public

with his

concerns

about its

safety.

Is NZTA listening?

DEVELOPING: This area of land on Vernon Drive near the intersection of Ormond Rd, Lincoln, will be the site of a new 41-house subdivision with homes

like this one if resource consent is granted.

Shape of district’s housing could change

• By Matt Slaughter

HIGHER DENSITY housing

developments could be built

in Selwyn’s town centres if the

council adopts the draft district

plan.

Housing density in the

district’s outer, more green areas

will be reduced to ensure land is

retained for rural production if

the plan is approved.

The district council released

the draft plan last week and a

public consultation period has

now started for people to make

submissions with their feedback

on the plan.

The plan was last reviewed 10

years ago.

It is expected that the new

plan will be in place by the end

of 2022.

Meanwhile, a resource

consent application has been

received for the construction of

a new 41 house subdivision in

Lincoln.

District council resource consents

team leader Rosie Flynn

said if approved, the houses will

be built on vacant land on Vernon

Drive near the intersection

with Ormond St.

This land is considered appropriate

for this development

because it lies close to a commercial

area.

Flynn said the location of

the subdivision will also be appropriate

because it is close to

Lincoln University.

“This application is still being

considered by our consenting

team. This was considered

appropriate due to its location

in close proximity to the commercial

area and the university,”

she said.

Meeting sought to discuss concerns

• From page 1

Motorists coming from the

Prebbleton direction have less

than 200m to cross to the onramp

lane to get to Christchurch

via the Southern Motorway after

coming off the Halswell Junction

Rd roundabout.

They have to

navigate their

side of Springs

Geoff Griffiths

Rd, and traffic

coming

through the

roundabout

from Hornby.

Mora said he

will be seeking

a meeting

with NZTA to

discuss his

concerns.

NZTA has previously told

Selwyn Times there is an “issue”

with the on-ramp but stopped

short of saying it was dangerous.

Asked if the issues with the onramp

were the result of a design

flaw, NZTA principal project

manager Geoff Griffiths said:

“We have to work within the

physical constraints of the site.

“While it would obviously be

different if we had a blank sheet

and could separate the motorway

and roundabout with more

distance, we have to work with

what we have and produce the

best design given the constraints

of the site and the need to make

the new motorway accessible for

the nearby industrial area, commuters

from Prebbleton and the

surrounding area.”

The on-ramp was requested

by the community board about

two months before the $195

million stage 2 of the Southern

Motorway project began in 2016.

Mora said the community

board wanted an on-ramp so

heavy vehicles coming from

industry in the Sockburn and

Hornby area could access the

motorway to destinations like

Lyttelton.

“We wanted a maximum number

of people using the motorway

so that they didn’t put undue

burden on the more-residential

streets.”

But what had been designed

was an on-ramp and roundabout

which was difficult to navigate,

he said.

NZTA did not answer a question

from Selwyn Times what the

plan had been in the original design

for access north to Christchurch

from Halswell Junction Rd

to the motorway.

Mora also said he was puzzled

by NZTA advice that motorists

who were concerned about safety

when turning left from Springs

Rd into the Halswell Junction

Rd roundabout should only do

so when both lanes were clear of

traffic.

“That would hold up traffic

forever. That’s not what roundabouts

are for,” he said.

NZTA did not answer questions

put by Selwyn Times about

why motorists are being told to

wait for both lanes to be clear

of traffic and if signage will be

installed to tell drivers to wait for

both lanes to clear.

Springs Ward councillor

and Selwyn district deputy

mayor Malcolm Lyall said the

roundabout and on-ramp had

got slightly safer than when it

first opened but he said it is still

causing issues for him and other

motorists.

LABOUR’S SELWYN candidate

Reuben Davidson believes the

district council may have missed

out on $13.5 million in funding

for shovel-ready roading projects

because it did not specify how

many jobs it

would create.

Selwyn

Times revealed

last week

the district

council’s

application

to Crown

Infrastructure

Partners,

funding, was declined.

THe application was for a

roading package that would

bring forward a range of

pavement renewals that had been

deferred as well as the upgrade

of 125km of road in areas across

the district.

However, it did not state how

many people would be employed

as a result of the projects.

Said Davidson: “Part of

Labour’s five-point plan is

investing in people and creating

jobs, this will have been a major

consideration in selecting which

shovel-ready projects we were

able to support.”

National’s Selwyn candidate

Nicola Grigg said the electorate

missing out on $13.5 million of

shovel-ready roading projects is

a big blow.

Grigg said the projects applied

“Ministers were faced with

down to a $3 billion package.”

He said in spite of the district

council missing out on the

funding it applied for, there are

other roading projects that have

been approved that will benefit

the area.

“I’m really pleased that we are

sudden death of Canterbury doctor

• By Chris Barclay

CANTERBURY’S medical

community is in mourning

alongside scores of former and

current patients cared for by

leading haematologist Dr Mark

Smith.

The 58-year-old, who died

suddenly from a medical event,

was farewelled on October 2,

though the tributes continue

to flow for the influential

haematology consultant at the

Canterbury District Health

Board.

Kim Shields Tupou

encapsulated the depth of

gratitude felt among families

touched by Smith’s empathy and

professionalism in a message she

wrote to him online.

“My father Joseph has been a

patient of yours since his initial

diagnoses of multiple myeloma

12 years ago. You have guided,

supported, been kind and

compassionate and used your

vast knowledge and expertise in

your treatment and management

of dad.

“When we were first told of his

prognosis, we were completely

devastated and we did not think

RESPECTED: Dr Mark Smith died suddenly on September 24.

for one minute that we would be

blessed enough for him to beat

so many odds, have periods of

being well and for him to be still

with us 12 years later.

“In this time, because of you

and the wonderful staff that

support you, our family has had

so much fun, we have laughed,

travelled, cried, loved and made

so many beautiful memories to

treasure. I want to thank you for

making these blessings possible.”

Lisa Webber also wrote from

a patient’s perspective when she

added: “I feel so privileged to

have been Mark’s patient for over

a 10 year time span.

“He helped me significantly

during the identification of an

unexpected blood disorder, and

guided me safely throughout

three precious pregnancies, and

post natal recovery time.

“At all times, Mark was always

open, kind, accessible and

compassionate. I will always be

so grateful for his care, guidance

and patience.”

Smith, who died on September

24, started his haematology

training in Christchurch in 1991

with a particular interest in

bleeding and clotting.

He qualified as a specialist

in 1995 and soon after he was

appointed to his first consultant

post at and Guy’s and St Thomas’

hospital in London, where he

eventually became clinical

director before returning to

Christchurch in 2002.

Long-term colleague Peter

Ganley said Smith left an

enviable legacy and a massive

void.

“Just as blood flows

throughout every part of the

body, no part of health is

untouched by haematology.

Mark’s mana and influence

has flowed far beyond our

department, into all of medicine

and surgery into primary and

secondary care,” he said.

“When you work with

someone every day for many

years you will know exactly their

value. When something fell over,

when we had an earthquake,

when we had the atrocity at the

mosque, when Covid struck,

Mark, to paraphrase loosely,

could keep his head when

everyone about was losing

theirs.”

Karl Archibald, vice-president

of the Haemophilia Foundation

of New Zealand, was also a

patient of Smith, who was an

avid athlete.

“Clinics with Mark would be

patient-focused, followed by tales

of his recent running triumphs

or trips,” he said.

“As a strong and considered

clinical advocate in the national

and international bleeding

disorders community, Mark

leaves a legacy that has raised the

standard of care for all.”

Smith, who was planning to

run the Queenstown marathon

on November 21, is survived

by his wife Cathy and children

Torin and Zoe.

THE LEESTON Volunteer Fire

Brigade chief has stepped down

from his role.

Lloyd Clausen, who has been

firefighting at the station for 51

years, and chief for five-anda-half,

will now move into an

operational support role for the

brigade.

He said he still plans on fighting

fires when needed, as well

as being a mentor for fellow

members.

He said his new role will give

him more time to spend with his

family, especially his three grandchildren.

He will also now be able

to focus on his role as a volunteer

at Leeston learners’ pool.

“I’ve got probably more time

with the grandkids actually, to be

fair. So that’s probably a biggie,’’

Clausen said.

“We’ve got a wee learners’

pool out in Leeston. I’ve got four

helpers and we run that over the

summer months.

“It’s so important that kids get

the chance to learn to swim and

get comfortable in the water.”

Clausen will also continue his

administration role organising

property maintenance for St

John facilities in Leeston and

Rolleston.

Clausen began firefighting in

1969 at the age of 15 and worked

his way up the ranks from station

officer, deputy, and then to

chief fire officer.

Some of his most memorable

jobs over the years were a fire at

a Leeston farm on Waitangi Day

1990 that went on for more than

a month. The fire did not spread

to any properties thanks to the

firefighting effort.

He also assisted in Christchurch

after the earthquakes,

driving a tanker around and supplying

water to firefighters.

“We took a lot of chimneys

down and stuff like that, assisted

people were we could.

Fire chief hands over the reins

Greg

“We had flooding in Leeston in

2013 where we probably responded

to about 80 calls in a 24-hour

period,” he said.

Clausen said his reason for

stepping down was to give other

people in the brigade a chance.

“You like doing the job but

you know its time to step aside

and let the younger guys come

through that’s what it’s all about.

You don’t want the old codgers

running the outfit.

“I’ve been thinking about it for

a while and by the time it came

down to it, it was time.

alive and passing the torch along.

It revitalises the brigade and

gives purpose to the other guys,”

he said

Greg Wheeler, former deputy

chief fire officer, will take over.

Wheeler has 30 years of service

with Fire and Emergency NZ

and Matt Walker who was the

senior station senior officer will

move up to the deputy position.

Said Clausen: “Greg is a really

great organiser with awesome

team management skills. We’re

always improving. when the new

team take over they’ll improve

on the previous team.”

NEWS 7

Wheeler, who began

in his new role last week,

has been in the brigade

for 32 years and was

deputy fire chief before

taking over from Clausen.

He has worked closely

alongside Clausen over

the years and aims to

be as much of a role

model for other brigade

members as he has been.

“It’s really about moving

with our everchanging

service and empowering

guys and girls in our

brigade to take a more

hands-on role.

“What I'm trying to

achieve, I suppose, is to

be quite communityfocused

and be maybe

a wee bit more visual

and engaged in the

community.’’

When he is not

volunteering for the

brigade, Wheeler works

full-time as operations

manager at Think Water

Canterbury, which

provides pump and

irrigation equipment,

installation, servicing and

maintenance.

Wheeler said he would

not be able to do his

role at the fire brigade

if it wasn’t for the

support of his family and

workplace during times

when he is called out to

emergencies.

AS THIS IS my last column as

MP for Selwyn, I would like to

firstly acknowledge Selwyn’s

communities and thank you all

for the support you have shown

me during the past 12 years.

It has been my privilege to work

with you to get things done in

our region and to represent your

views in Parliament.

I have enjoyed witnessing the

continuing success of Selwyn in

spite of the challenges we have

faced and have been a strong

advocate for the region securing

the necessary infrastructure to

match our growth.

When I was first elected as

MP in 2008, Rolleston had

just one school, and there are

now five primary schools and

one high school in Rolleston

alone. Halswell and Lincoln

also have new primary schools

and many other schools around

our region have benefited from

new classrooms and other

facilities.

During my time in Parliament

I have been fortunate to have

held a variety of ministerial

portfolios which have given me

the opportunity to change the

system and make a difference

to the lives of New Zealanders.

As Justice Minister I am most

proud of the work I started with

my colleague Anne Tolley around

tackling our country’s shameful

rates of family violence.

The changes we put in place

included developing a new

delivery model for family violence

to get agencies to work together.

The integrated safety response

pilots we set up are already

making a difference and those

working in the sector have told

me that they believe many lives

have been saved as a result of this

new way of working.

I believe that long-term

thinking and planning is

vital when it comes to our

infrastructure needs. And as

Financial hit from

pandemic forces career change

• By Matt Slaughter

PAUL AND Sue Robinson’s

Rolleston travel agency business

has been slammed by the

financial impacts of Covid-19.

Profits are down 98 per cent

from what they would be during

a usual year at Helloworld Travel

Rolleston, which the husband

and wife own.

Faced with the real possibility

of having to close, they had a

choice – give in to adversity, or

find a new way to make ends

meet.

They chose the latter and have

just had the soft opening for

their new business RE/MAX

Eclipse Realty Rolleston on

Rolleston Drive.

The Robinsons have previous

real estate experience and will be

joined by their daughter Brooke

Robinson, who is retraining as a

real estate agent, after doing her

previous training in hospitality

and tourism.

Fellow real estate agent Murray

Irvine will complete the team

until they’re in a position to hire

more staff.

Said Sue: “I think that out of

adversity there are two things

that happen, people either look

for blame or look to blame, or

they go and sort of get on with

it, and Paul and I just thought

let’s just do it and get on with

it.”

Sue said the real estate office

will be in the same building as

Helloworld Travel Rolleston,

which will also remain open,

and she hopes, return to normal

The plan is to eventually move

the real estate office to a site of

its own.

She said keeping Helloworld

RE/MAX Eclipse Realty

Rolleston would not have been

possible without financial assistance

from family members

and understanding from their

landlord.

Sue said the property market

in Selwyn is strong so she believes

the move to real estate will

pay off.

The median property value

in every town in the district has

increased in the last year.

Stormwater

bypass work

under way

WORK IS under way on stage

3 of the Leeston stormwater

bypass, replacing the High St

culverts and connecting these to

Volkman Drain.

To do this work, Station St

and Leeston Rd will be closed at

times around the Volkman Rd

and High St intersections. Station

St is due to be closed from

Friday until November 11 and

Leeston Rd is due to be closed

from November 12 to December

15.

When Station St is closed the

detour will take traffic down

Cunningham St back to Station

St. Because Station St is the truck

bypass into Leeston, residents

should expect increased truck

movements during this time.

The works are part of a longterm

project to upgrade the

stormwater network and reduce

the risk of flooding in Leeston.

Detailed design work for stage

4, connecting the Leeston creek

with the flood bypass channel is

under way. The district council

is making progress to begin

construction in February 2021.

$12,000 plan to restore

historic whale pots

RELICS OF Akaroa’s

whaling days will be restored

after decades of damage

often caused by children

clambering in and out of the

large cast-iron try pots on the

foreshore.

A $12,000 conservation

project will start soon, with

the three pots on Beach Rd to

be carefully prised from their

broken brickwork setting and

then removed for intensive

restoration.

The triple try pots – dating

back to the early 1800s –

have gradually deteriorated

in the face of the corrosive

sea environment and their

popularity with hands-on

young visitors to Beach

Rd. Whalers used the pots

– which would sit on ship

decks or in whaling stations

dotted on the foreshore

around New Zealand from the

1830s – to boil down whale

blubber for use in lamps and

soap. The pots were usually

organised in a “nest”, with

a fire lit underneath. The

shore-whaling era on Banks

Peninsula ended about 1850.

All three pots came from

local whaling stations, with

the centre pot – created by

the Coalbrookdale foundry in

Shropshire, England – moved

to the township from nearby

Peraki Bay. The other two pots

probably came from Whakamoa

Bay.

The pots have rusted and

pitted, requiring delicate conservation

work that does not

lessen the heritage value of the

original structures. They will

be carefully cleaned and the

corrosion will be treated at a

conservator’s workshop, with

a blend of natural oils.

Along with the pots, preparations

are also under way to

remove and restore the nearby

Britomart Cannon. The

timber sections of the carriage

require extensive repairs.

The Lieutenant Governor

of New Zealand, Captain

William Hobson, sent a ship,

the Britomart, to Akaroa

in 1840 to establish British

authority before the arrival

of the French. While the

1808 Kinman cannon on the

Akaroa foreshore is not from

the ship, it is very similar.

It came to New Zealand for

display at the 1906-1907

International Exhibition in

Christchurch following a

request from Akaroa mayor

Etienne Le Lievre.

The cannon has been at its

present site since 1908.

Lachie’s loud way to be heard

LACHIE BARTLETT vividly

remembers the moment his

cochlear implant was switched on

for the first time when he was an

eight-year-old.

“My family was behind the

one-way mirror that looked into

the room,” said Bartlett, who is

profoundly deaf.

“I remember Mum saying: ‘Hi

Lachie’ from the other side of the

glass. I smiled immediately. The

next sound I heard was the crying

of my nana and Mum.”

That was 14 years ago.

Bartlett, now 23, has since

graduated with a law degree from

Canterbury University and took up

an exchange opportunity to study

at the University of Nottingham

in the United Kingdom. He now

works in Wellington.

His family lives in Prebbleton.

Bartlett, and thousands of other

adults and children with cochlear

implants, are the focus of loud shirt

day 2020 – a national fundraising

event and awareness campaign on

October 23.

New Zealanders are encouraged

to dress up in their brightest outfits

and hold fundraising events at

workplaces, homes and schools

throughout the country.

Loud shirt day is the annual appeal

of The Hearing House and the

Southern Cochlear Implant Programme

– the only two charities in

New Zealand dedicated to helping

children and adults with a cochlear

implant learn to listen and speak.

Bartlett’s hearing loss was

diagnosed when he was 18-monthsold.

He lost his hearing completely

when he was eight, mid-way

through playing a game of tennis.

“I remember falling over at the

tennis courts and being disorientated,

and my hearing aids just

refused to work. The sudden nature

of my hearing loss was incredibly

scary for me and my family,” Bartlett

said.

“I became a recluse. I wouldn’t

say much, I preferred to be alone at

home and I did not enjoy school.

The loss of my hearing crippled

my confidence and shackled my

ability to continue developing relationships

with those around me,”

Bartlett said.

The cochlear implant has enabled

him to reach his full potential.

“Thanks to my cochlear implant,

I was able to travel halfway around

the world studying and doing my

OE like so many other Kiwis before

me. I now have the ability to choose

whatever path I want to take in

life.”

Surgery and the subsequent

switch-on is only one part of the

cochlear implant process. Patients

need to learn how to use the

technology and interpret the new

sounds through ongoing audiology

and speech and language therapy.

“The switch-on is significant, but

it’s just the first step in a marathon,”

said Bartlett.

“The ongoing rehabilitation and

support from organisations like

SCIP and THH are equally important

but sadly don’t get the same

amount of attention.

“The cochlear implant is like getting

your first car, something that

has endless potential to take you

anywhere, but if you are not empowered

to be able to use it you’ll

just stay stuck in the drive.”

Bartlett regularly participates in

loud shirt day, and encourages others

to do the same.

“The funds raised by loud shirt

day helped me and will help children

and adults in the future to

focus on their abilities – enabling

them to view their disability as an

opportunity, rather than a burden.

You have the chance to change

people’s lives.

“The money raised for loud shirt

day is a direct investment in the

lives of those who want to hear.”

SUPPORT: Lachie Bartlett,

who is profoundly deaf,

encourages others to take

part in loud shirt day to

fundraise for charities

who work with the deaf

community.

Love, Learn and Play

the Freckles way!

OPEN DAYS THURSDAY 15TH and

FRIDAY 16TH OCTOBER, 9AM-3PM

Freckles Early Learning Centre is a brand new purposebuilt,

spacious facility in Rolleston with the best and

latest pedagogical experiences. Freckles is built on a

massive 3500m2 site and is licensed for only 70 children

centre-wide.

When owners Tracy and Gavin Summerfield were approached

by the developer of Falcons Landing, Rolleston to build

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

had observed a number of new centres opening in recent

years but most seemed to be concentrating on larger licences

with smaller sites. So they decided they would do something

different. Freckles has been designed with children in mind,

with spacious indoor and outdoor areas, enabling children to

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

learn about the world around them.

Freckles will operate three stage and age appropriate

rooms employing qualified teachers in all environments.

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

Rolleston and West Melton early learning centres is built

on having the best possible staff and this will continue at

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

qualified, passionate and caring people who believe in our

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

skills and experience, that they will bring something unique

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

before anything else.”

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

laughter and learning.

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

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

happy, nurtured and challenged children, where the wonder

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

passionate about creating early learning centres that offer a

safe, welcoming and nurturing environment”.

Freckles Early Learning Centre provides space and

opportunity for physical play.

Play is valuable for children’s physical development as

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

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

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

and moveable play equipment is very important for child

development.

Freckles develops and becomes part of the Rolleston

community.

Support needed to repair historic cottage

• By Chris Barclay

TIPTREE COTTAGE is a rare

colonial cob farmhouse dealing

with a familiar predicament, as

the Yaldhurst museum faces an

uncertain future for the third

time since its construction

around 1862.

One of the oldest surviving

buildings in Canterbury, the

category one heritage listed cottage

needs $155,000 to complete

earthquake-related repairs

almost a decade after Tiptree

sustained structural damage.

Most of the upgrade has been

completed through support from

the Christchurch City Council,

Heritage New Zealand and private

benefactors.

But finance is still required to

mend several major cracks in the

cob before Tiptree’s antiquated

architecture can be accessed by

the public for the first time since

2010.

Tiptree Cottage trustee Kate

McLeod said Heritage New Zealand

will stump up 50 per cent of

the amount providing trustees

can source the remainder so cob

specialist Mike Jackson can complete

work on walls made from a

mixture of straw, clay and water.

McLeod thought the use of

cob was possibly dictated by the

lack of timber on the Canterbury

Plains; the cottage originally

had a thatched roof before it was

replaced by corrugated iron in

1900.

She said the funding drive was

not the first time Tiptree has

been the focal point of adversity

since it was built by English

farmer William Savill.

Savill died seven years after

the cottage was built in a style

reminiscent of his native Essex -

Tiptree is a village in the county

– leaving widow Eliza Jane to

wage a legal battle.

In spite of being a spouse, she

was not entitled to the property

so she sailed back to England to

fight for ownership.

After a four-year saga she was

allowed to purchase the property

for £STG330.

“If it hadn’t been for that, the

cottage wouldn’t be there now,”

McLeod said.

Then, during the 1930s, Tiptree

was used as a shearing shed,

leading to significant wear and

tear when sheep rubbed against

the cob.

The Gregg family – three are

also members of the trust –

bought the dilapidated cottage

in 1963, rescuing it from ruin

and gradually converting it to a

museum, which opened to the

public in 1979.

Many of Savill’s possessions

were on display.

McLeod, a descendant of

the couple, remembers visiting

Tiptree as a teenager, and the

carriage clock still rang a bell.

“That came over from

England and in the lounge room

wall there’s a niche that’s been

cut into the cob which is exactly

the right size for the clock,” she

said.

McLeod joined the trust

in 2016 and hopes to one day

expand the attraction once the

lease on an adjacent quarry

expires and the land is reconstituted.

“The surrounding farm had

fish ponds and orchards, that’s

now a quarry and the long-term

plan is to get hold of a bit of

that and do a larger agricultural

museum.”

Pool Expansion

Temporary entrance and changing rooms from Monday 19 October

We’re speeding up work at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre to make sure it’s finished as soon as possible and catch up with the Covid disruption.

To do this, we will be bringing forward our work in the entrance and changing room areas, which will require some changes to how

you use the centre.

From Monday 19 October, a new temporary entrance will be in place on the side of the main pool hall and temporary changing rooms

will be in place on the north side of the building.

This means the customer counter will be at the portacom in front of the temporary entrance and you will then need to cross the pool

hall to the new changing rooms.

The accelerated work means we’re on track to have both the new pool and new foyer, multi-use rooms, and changing rooms open in

April and the final works completed by September 2021.

Although work was delayed through the

Level 4 lockdown period, we were able

to catch up some time at Level 3, which

means the pools will not have to close at

all as originally planned. This new sped

up work programme allows us to catch

up the remaining time lost over the Level

4 lockdown while always having a pool

available for swimming.

New pool –

under construction

Existing pool hall

Temporary changing rooms

Current changing

rooms – closed

The expansion will see a new 10-lane,

25-metre pool built, greatly increasing the

existing capacity, with more recreational

lane swimming and learn to swim space

and allow more options for water sports

and spectator space. The full expansion will

also add recreation and community spaces.

Play rugby on your table top

• By Chris Barclay

WHILE ALL Blacks to club

rugby’s toilers are often urged to

play what’s in front of them, Zane

Thompson spent years refining

his game plan.

The board game fanatic spent

eight years toying with a project

to transplant the national sport

to a card and dice based game

where all the intricacies of

the code – even the ability to

determine the weather conditions

– are built in.

Although the goal is the same

as playing on grass – scoring tries

– three mini games: the scrum,

lineout and breakdown ensure

there is more to winning than a

lucky roll of the dice.

Usual tactical appreciation is

key while the sin bin, TMO and

astute use of the “cheat” card

can also influence the flow of a

match-up.

Thompson, 48, laid the

groundwork for Rugby – The

Game one morning after his son

Jacob’s match was rained off in

Christchurch.

“He made an off-the-cuff

comment: ‘It sucks there’s not

a rugby game’. I was like: ‘Let’s

make one’,” he said.

“It is a very different game now

to what it was. Originally I had 15

players lined out and it was quite

long and messy. It was dialed

back to get that fast game play

for a board rather than it being a

simulation.”

Now there are six positional slots

a side and a game of two halves

should take 40min for players 13

years and over. There is also a 7s

format planned for juniors.

Thompson developed an

interest in board games in the

1980s and it never wavered

in spite of the advent of video

consoles, computer games and

mobile phone game apps.

“As long as I can remember

I’ve liked the competitiveness of

board games,” he said.

“That started with all your

standard family games like

Snakes and Ladders and it grew

into Hero Quest, Space Crusade –

very old-school games.”

He then progressed to The

Lords of Hellas and Western

Legends before his focus turned

to his own contribution to a

growing global industry.

The project gathered

momentum when a Kickstarter

page launched last September

raised about $11,000, $1000 of

which was spent on a mould for

the ball.

The first 1500-box order

was produced in China and

is expected to be stocked by

Whitcoulls and other retailers

in the run-up to Christmas – a

victory of sorts because rugby

games can be a hard sell.

“Sports people probably aren’t

that keen on a board game and

most board gamers aren’t that

into sport,” he said.

New Zealand Rugby is playing

a waiting game before they

endorse the product, so for now

Thompson’s supporters like Korey

Waipouri and Grant Golding are

the ‘stars’ of this edition.

“We’ll look at that (NZR)

after we get some sales up and

hopefully we can negotiate to use

some of the players,” Thompson

said.

Food & Liquor Delivery

Now In Rolleston!

Advertorial

N e w s F l a s h, N e w s F l a s h:

GiveMeBread is now delivering in Rolleston,

and no, it’s not a bakery… It’s a seven days

a week delivery service right to your door

– all done via a tracking app – food, liquor,

grocery, prescriptions, and gifts.

Whether it’s everyday essentials or lastminute

requirements, the applications are

endless. Forgotten Mum’s birthday – send

her a gift. Friends arrived unexpectedly –

order in food and drink. Need grocery and

liquor supplies but had a long day – get

them delivered.

“Give Me Bread is a locally owned and

operated delivery app, offering delivery

within 45 minutes of ordering,” explains

Chelsea Dickson, GiveMeBread’s business

and operations manager. “We partner

with local restaurants, cafés, liquor shops,

breweries, grocery stores, pharmacies, and

gift merchants. Our delivery service provides

a convenient, affordable alternative to

driving, picking up takeaways, eating out

and general click and collect.”

GiveMeBread will deliver up to seven or

eight kilometres from where the business

purchases are made from, for an affordable

delivery fee.

“We have just recently launched in

Rolleston, offering food and liquor delivery

and have received great feedback so far.

The initiative is definitely gaining traction

fast,” says Chelsea.

GiveMeBread is currently offering

unlimited free deliveries in Rolleston (up

to four kilometres from the purchase

venue – with a small delivery fee charged

per kilometre thereafter) – this is on

orders $25 plus.

Chelsea hopes it will help support local

businesses to spring back after lockdown.

“We charge a fair commission to the

restaurants but take no commission from

our drivers.”

Double insulated bags are used to

keep food warm and drinks cold, and

Chelsea says a wide variety of businesses

have already come on board with more

suppliers joining each day. Booking a

delivery is easy – via the app or website and

the live status of the order easily can be

tracked via GPS.

GiveMeBread promotions can be found on

Facebook, or through the app, and joining up

with the Loyalty Club enables users to earn

points on dollars spent, which can be used

for future deliveries. See the advertisement in

this issue for further details.

awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us.

Leafminer feeds on native broom

exudate that drips from the

damaged tissue.

They then lay a single egg into

the holes made in the leaf. Larvae

hatch from eggs and proceed to

burrow in, leaf-feeding as they

tunnel along the leaf.

Fully grown larvae about

2-3mm in length then cut a slit

in the epidermis and drop to the

ground to pupate in the soil or

leaf litter.

In warmer areas such as

Auckland, the leafminer appear

to breed year-round, although

numbers appear to lower in early

autumn ad late summer.

Observations in Christchurch

suggest numbers are lower and

breeding is slower over winter.

Parasitism rates of the leafminer

in Christchurch is higher in

larvae during late spring and

early summer.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Spankem boosts NZ Cup tilt

• By Jonny Turner

SPANKEM CALLED on his

best weapon – his sizzling turn

of speed – to nail Self Assured

on the line and give his New

Zealand Cup campaign another

boost by winning the Methven

Cup on Sunday.

Giving away a race fitness

edge to all of his rivals and

being stuck third last before the

home turn were not big enough

obstacles to stop the Miracle

Mile winner from taking out

the 3000m group 2 feature by

head and going one better than

his brilliant first up effort in the

Canterbury Classic.

Self Assured took the lead

on the home turn after sitting

parked for the last lap of the

Methven Cup, leaving Spankem

with about seven lengths to

make up.

At that stage, the winner’s

part-owners, Philip and Glenys

Kennard, admitted they almost

gave Spankem no chance of

winning.

And the sometimes tricky

angle of the winning post at

Methven had them convinced he

didn’t clinch victory.

“On the turn, Glenys and I

said if we get second or third we

would be happy,” Philip Kennard

said.

“Even on the line, I walked in

to one of the boxes up the top

there at Methven and I thought

they had called that wrong.

“I walked away thinking we

had run second, quite happy, and

then we got downstairs and they

said you’ve won it.”

Spankem looks to have joined

a rocky road to the New Zealand

Cup at the right time with his

excellent return from injury in

the Canterbury Classic and his

Methven Cup win.

And being just two runs in

to his campaign, there is plenty

more to come from the six-yearold.

By the time Spankem gets

to Ashburton to defend his

Ashburton Flying Stakes title, he

should be significantly fitter.

“We are very excited,” Kennard

said.

“You would have seen what

a good run in the Canterbury

Classic – it was first up and it was

a very good horse that beat him.

“Self Assured had to do a bit

more work and that probably

helped us turn the tables.

“He is going to go to the

TIGHT

FINISH:

Spankem

beat out

Self Assured

on the line

to win the

Methven Cup

on Sunday.

Ashburton Flying Stakes now, in

a fortnight.

“The best part about it, what

we always like to hear, is that

they have pulled up well after

they have had a wash down.

“And Natalie said he was

jumping around like a lunatic.”

The Kennards may have tasted

plenty of big race success, but

their journey to their biggest of

wins mean they keep their feet

firmly on the ground.

“Glenys and I really appreciate

how hard it is to get horses to

these races.

“We have had ups and downs,

there have been plenty of ups,

but there have been a whole lot of

downs.

“It is a big achievement just to

have a horse in the New Zealand

Cup.”

While Spankem is clearly

on track to attempt to go one

better than his second behind

Cruz Bromac in last year’s New

Zealand Cup, another of the

Kennards’ horses is not.

The owners are awaiting for

the results of extensive blood

testing done on Thefixer after

the 2018 New Zealand Cup

winner was pulled up out of

the Canterbury Classic after

suffering an atrial fibrillation.

Going by the running of

the Kerry Hoggard Memorial

Holmes D G at Alexandra Park

on Friday night, the Kennards

could have had a third contender

for the New Zealand Cup.

South Coast Arden went a

cracking race to get within half a

length of the winner, Copy That.

However, the Brent Mangos

trained pacer is not nominated

for New Zealand’s premier

harness race. But his team have

the option of making a late

payment to for the New Zealand

Cup.

Sped up programmes sees

changes at Aquatic Centre

We’re speeding up work at Selwyn Aquatic Centre to get the new extension finished as soon as

possible and to catch up after the Covid disruption.

To do this, we will be bringing forward our work in the entrance and changing room areas, which

will require some changes to how you use the centre.

From Monday 19 October, a new temporary entrance will be in place at the front of the main pool

hall and temporary changing rooms will be in place on the north side of the building.

The customer counter will be at the portacom in front of the temporary entrance and you will then

need to cross the pool hall to the new changing rooms.

The accelerated work means we’re on track to have both the new pool and new foyer, community

rooms, and changing rooms open next April and the final works completed by September 2021.

Although work was delayed by the Level 4 lockdown period, we were able to catch up some time

during Level 3, which means the pools will not have to close at all as originally planned. This new

work programme allows us to catch up time lost during lockdown while keeping a pool available

for swimming.

The expansion will see a new 10-lane, 25-metre pool built, greatly increasing the existing capacity,

with more recreational lane swimming and learn to swim space and allow more options for water

sports and spectator space. The full expansion will also add recreation and community spaces.

New pool –

under construction

On the Roads

ON THE

ROADS Station Street, Leeston, will be closed at the intersection with Leeston Road from Friday

Showcasing a passion for Kapa

Haka and Kī -o-Rahi

On Sunday 18 October a Lincoln High School sports team will

gather on the Lincoln Domain ready to demonstrate the traditional

Maori sport of Kī-o-Rahi.

Team Manager and coach, Lincoln High School teacher Matua

Tihirangi Brightwell says he introduced the sport to the school in

2015 and the passion for the sport grew from there.

“Basically the students love it! I didn’t have to do much selling,

because it’s like nothing they’ve necessarily ever played before, but it

can draw on lots of different skills of games they actually already play.”

Tihirangi says he enjoys developing the teams and seeing them

compete because of his passion for the sport.

“I value it, I like to play it, I believe in the sport so it’s easy for me to

be involved.”

Tihirangi says it is better watched than described, but put simply

Kī-o-Rahi is played on a circular field with a barrel, in the middle.

One team scores points by throwing a ball at the barrel while the

opponents defend the barrel and attempt to score a try.

Tihirangi will also lead the secondary schools’ combined Kapa Haka

group Te Kāhui Whetū o Waihora for a performance.

He says CultureFest will be a great opportunity for these students

from Lincoln, Darfield, Rolleston and Ellesmere secondary schools

to showcase what Kapa Haka means to them.

“Kapa Haka is a great way for some of the students to grow as

people, build confidence and be involved in things Māori if they’re

not Māori. I truly believe in what Māoridom has to offer so all I can

do is present it, and that’s part of the reason why we wanted to

do CultureFest. We’re going to showcase what Māoridom means

to these four schools and to their families and give the audience a

glimpse of the passion and the enjoyment.”

Find out what the Proposed

District Plan means for you

The Proposed District Plan matters for all of us, because it makes a

difference to how we live, work and play in Selwyn into the future.

We want to hear from you about the proposed changes, but we also

want to help you understand how it might affect you. We’re holding

drop-in sessions where you can speak directly with a planner about

any questions you may have.

The District Plan sets the rules around much of what you and your

neighbours can do on land across the district, future development

and preserving our heritage and environment.

It covers everything from building a house or extension, or starting a

business, to our environment and heritage, what trees are protected,

and whether your house is at risk of flooding or liquefaction.

You can read the summary consultation document Because it

matters and find out how to make a submission at Council libraries

and service centres, or online at selwyn.govt.nz/districtplanreview.

Farm waste management day returns

A popular day to support farmers in disposing of hard to move farm waste is returning to Selwyn.

Almost 7000 kg of farm waste was safely disposed of through the first Agrecovery Rural Recycling day,

held in Ellesmere last year. The Council programme with Agrecovery Rural Recycling will be held in

Malvern on Monday 9 November this year. The day offers farmers and growers the opportunity to safely

dispose of a variety of farm waste.

During the day farmers and growers who have preregistered will be able to drop off chemical

containers, fertiliser and feedbags, waste oil and unwanted chemicals for recycling, or safe disposal.

Unfortunately this year silage and bale wrap cannot be accepted. To take part in the day people must

register, book a time and indicate the type of wastes they will be bringing. The location will be provided

to registered attendees.

Over 60 people dropped off 6915 kg of farm waste last year, including 2705 kg of chemicals that were

safely treated and disposed of, 1500 kg of chemical containers and over 1000 kg of fertiliser bags.

Selwyn District Council’s Solid Waste Manager, Andrew Boyd says the Council jumped at the

opportunity to host the day again.

“We saw last year how valuable the day was for people in

our rural sector, so we’re excited to hold another one and

support our community. We see it as a great partnership

between Farmers, AgRecovery, the Council, and the

specialist waste and recycling contractors – working

together to help keep our environment free of waste.”

Waste must be prepared properly before drop off and

farmers and growers interested in registering for the

events and finding out more about how to prepare

material for drop off should visit Agrecovery.co.nz

Lyons belts Lincoln out of contention

NEWCOMERS TO top-flight

country cricket, Ohoka stamped

their mark on the competition

with a hard-fought win over

Ellesmere rivals Lincoln on

Saturday.

The 23-run Ohoka victory

in the CRV Ambreed country

premier one day 2020/21 cricket

competition came on the back

of a superb century by opener

Daniel Lyons.

Lyons’ 108 runs off 125 balls

anchored the innings as the

home side made an imposing

249/4 in a reduced 42 overs,

with Rhys Mariu who starred in

the New Zealand XI at the ICC

under-19 cricket World Cup in

South Africa earlier this year,

chiming in with a classy 49.

Lincoln looked likely to run

down the high score thanks to

an incredible solo effort from Joe

Williams.

The left-hander plundered the

Ohoka attack to all parts on his

way to a blazing 160 runs off

just 120 balls, which included 28

boundaries.

But when Williams was

stumped by Will Hamilton off

the medium-pace of Paul Miller

in the 36 th over the game was

lost. Miller and Austin Hamilton

mopped up the tail to record

their first competition win.

A resurgent Sefton recorded

their second win of the new season

with a comfortable six-wicket

demolition of Darfield.

At Sefton Domain, the visitors

struggled to get any momentum

in their first innings, collapsing

to 144 all out in the 41 st over.

Micah Campbell was chief

destroyer, snaring five wickets.

Returning from a stint overseas,

Lance Taylor’s unbeaten 49

off 100 balls showed his quality

by guiding Sefton to the comfortable

victory with more than five

overs left.

The upset of the round came

at Mandeville where Weedons

tipped over competition favourites

Leeston-Southbridge.

Batting first, Weedons got solid

contributions throughout their

order to make 161 before they

were bowled out in the 44 th over.

An aggressive 55-run ninth

wicket partnership between

Arnav Deb (28 runs off 26 balls)

and Jack Parker (26 off 33) ultimately

proved the difference in

the match.

Deb took confidence from the

bat into the second innings with

the ball. Opening the bowling,

Deb (5/20) and Charlie Robson

(3/30) ripped through the Lee-

Bridge top order, claiming the

price scalps of Rupert Young and

Harry Chamberlain cheaply.

A spirited 40 not out from No

9 batsman David Neal gave the

combined side a sniff of victory,

but ended up falling 36 runs

short.

The Southbrook vs Oxford-

Rangiora clash was abandoned

after just 24.1 overs, with the

’Brook on 89/3.

Cheviot had the bye.

Short scorecards:

Ohoka 249/4 (D Lyons 108, R

Mariu 49, R Kelly 34; A Gulati

2/40) beat Lincoln 226 (J Williams

160, R Sporke 22; P Miller

4/42, A Hamilton 4/46).

Darfield 144 (B Innes 37, R

Hughes 31; M Hamilton 5/23, J

Roberts 2/29, C Warner 2/34) lost

to Sefton 145/4 (L Taylor 49no, F

Sheat 22; J Frew 3/32).

Weedons 161 (A Deb 28,

J Parker 26, C Robson 24, J

Richards 24, T Inness 22; W

Macfarlane 5/26) beat Leeston

Southbridge 125 (D Neal 40no; A

Deb 5/20, C Robson 3/30).

SELWYN UNITED have

preserved their top flight status by

winning a knife-edge Mainland

Premier League football

relegation battle with Western

AFC 2-1 in their final round clash

at English Park.

Needing a draw to avoid

the drop to the second-tier

championship on Saturday,

Selwyn secured their second

win of the 21-round campaign

– with both victories achieved

against the competition’s other

struggler.

Dorian Gault scored twice for

Selwyn United. He netted the

opener and then restored the buffer

moments after Rogier Kurbus

equalised from the penalty spot

with 10min remaining.

Champions Cashmere-Technical

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

preserved their unbeaten season

thanks to a 94th-minute equaliser

shortly after Nomads United went

2-1 up in added time.

An upset victory would have

sealed the runner-up spot for

Nomads in the eight-team league,

but they had to settle for third

after Coastal Spirit’s 3-2 triumph

over Nelson Suburbs left them

one point clear of 38.

STEP INTO the scene of

murderous plots with a

Christchurch Heritage Festival

tour of the home of crime fiction

queen Dame Ngaio Marsh to

mark the 125th anniversary of

the author’s birth.

Born in Christchurch in 1895,

Marsh died in 1982, aged 86.

Nestled in a quiet corner of

Cashmere, the weatherboard

house – designed by leading

local architect Samuel Hurst

Seager – was home to the awardwinning

writer for 76 years, with

the family among the first to

settle in the area.

Today visitors can wander

back in time, with the interior –

packed with Marsh’s furniture,

family treasures, books, awards

and art – offering a unique

narrative.

The Heritage Festival tour,

which runs over three weekends

from Saturday, October 24,

shares chapters from Marsh’s life

Festival.

as a writer, director and lifelong

painter.

Ngaio Marsh House and

Heritage Trust spokeswoman

Jessica Petersen believes the

house “enriches the national

cultural heritage of New

Zealand”.

“While the house has been

enlarged over the years, it is

Dame Ngaio lived in it,” Petersen

says.

“The table is set with Dame

Ngaio’s china, and the dining

room and sitting room drapes

are made from fabric chosen by

Dame Ngaio on her travels.

“There is also memorabilia

from her many Shakespearean

productions, her writing desk,

Petersen says the writer’s

“whodunnit career began on a

cold, wet weekend in London in

1931”.

“She was bored and sat down

to write what would become her

first Roderick Alleyn novel, A

Man Lay Dead.

“Over 50 years, she wrote 32

classic English detective novels,

than her contemporary, Agatha

Christie, at one stage.”

Ngaio Marsh House is a

Category 1 Historic Place,

with a registered heritage

garden.

The house’s designer was

also responsible for wellknown

World War I memorials

overseas, and several Summit Rd

landmarks, including the Sign of

the Kiwi.

Visitors can join a guided tour

through the house and grounds

to discover more about Marsh’s

life and work.

Delightful drops from a hot season

• By Mark Henderson

THE MAJORITY of Central

pinot noirs on the shelves at

the moment are from the 2018

vintage.

This was an exceptionally hot

season from December through

until the beginning of March,

when cooler, rainy conditions

VINZ flagship Testing

ADVERTORIAL

Station of the South opens

Wednesday October 14 2020 Selwyn Times 35

VINZ is excited to announce the

opening of the new state-of-the-art Testing

Station in Rolleston.

As CEO of VINZ Sean Stevens says,

“The opening couldn’t have happened at a

better time with the expansion of the new

Christchurch Southern Motorway scheme,

which is set to be completed in 2021.”

The roadworks will improve access to

the Izone in Rolleston by extending 7.5km

of road in built-up areas from Hornby and

Templeton to Robinsons Road.

“Izone is already attracting a range

of organisations to the area, including

automotive businesses, restaurants, and

cafes as well as being one of the fastestgrowing

residential growth towns,” Sean

says.

The new facility will be the “flagship

of the south”, which gives VINZ the

flexibility to service both residential and

business customers in the local area, he

says.

Sean says he would like to thank

everyone involved, who has worked hard

to bring this project to launch during

these “unprecedented times”.

“We look forward to a very successful

start.”

The new Testing Station features two

dedicated inspection pits for heavy vehicle

and COFB customers as well as a separate

lane for WOF and light vehicle compliance

inspections.

The Station supports WOF inspections

for light vehicle, motorcycles and trailers,

as well as transactional services such as

registration and RUC. It also has specific

lanes for heavy vehicles for COF Trucks,

COF rental and entry inspections on both

light and heavy vehicles.

The dedicated heavy lane inspection

area allows VINZ to inspect a whole truck

and trailer with minimal movement of

the vehicle. All traffic, including trucks,

enters from Hynds Drive, is inspected,

then departs from Link Drive, providing

a seamless drive-through experience for

customers.

VINZ Rolleston is located at 47 Link

Drive and the new site offers the full range

of VINZ’s products and services, with a

focus on heavy-vehicle inspections and

certification and NZTA transactional

Services include:

• WOF

• COF, a regular inspection for passenger

service, rental and heavy goods vehicles

• Pre-purchase inspections, to give greater

confidence to buyers and seller of used

vehicles

• Heavy vehicle entry certification

• Hybrid and electric vehicle safety checks

• Administrative services, such as reregistrations

and vehicle licensing

• Motorcycle compliance

VINZ benefits

VINZ has a tailored and flexible

approach to delivering inspection services

and works closely with customers to

provide end-to-end solutions, with both

light and heavy commercial vehicle fleets.

VINZ has been appointed by NZTA as

a key service delivery partner for over 20

years, VINZ is independent, and offers

inspection services across 12 Testing

Stations, as well as several off-site premises

nationwide.

West Melton

Time for change

When Penny Calder started caring for

children in her home in 2001, little did

she know that working with children

would become a passion for her and lead

to building a dedicated childcare centre in

West Melton in 2002.

“Making a difference in someone else’s

life was such a reward,” says Penny. “I

nannied overseas and when I returned

to New Zealand, I worked in a preschool

before having children of my own and

then caring for children in my home.”

Penny was inundated with calls to care

for local children and that was when she

realized there was a need for a childcare

centre in the area.

The West Melton Kindergarten, Nursery

and Learning Centre was built in the

middle of a paddock and had just five

children on the first day. As numbers

increased, the dream of having older

children in a separate area became a

reality when the Learning Centre was

added.

“The first few years were hard work,”

reminisces Penny, “working with the

children in the morning, office work in the

afternoon and then cleaning the centre at

night.” She even roped in her mum to help

out as she couldn’t afford extra staff.

The childcare centre soon became a

family affair. Not only did Penny’s children

Penny Calder is proud her time at the centre and the valuable contribution

she and its staff have given to the community over the years.

attend the childcare centre but over the

years her two daughters relieved for her.

Recently Penny has also had the pleasure

of having her granddaughter there too.

Penny’s decision to sell the West Melton

Kindergarten, Nursery and Learning

Centre means she now has time to do

other things in her life. The decision

to sell was hard and came with much

deliberation and tears. “It was time for me

to take another step in life as the centre

had been my whole life for so long.”

Penny is grateful to the local

community. “I want to thank my families

for their support over the years,” says

Penny. “Some families have been in the

centre for many years.” She has seen

those children grow into confident older

children and takes pride in having helped

them on their path to adulthood.

“It just makes me so happy and I know

we all did a good job!”

The Next Big Thing...

West Melton

Hub of the Community

Millie’s House, the new owner of West

Melton Kindergarten, Nursery and

Learning Centre, is excited to be a part of

the local community.

Operations manager Su Costa says the

group is looking forward to embracing

the semi-rural lifestyle of the centre with

its unique and expansive outdoor play

area. She says the centre will continue with

its manager and teacher

led approach as they

recognize the importance

of maintaining a stable

environment for children

and parents.

Local area manager

Richard Black will also

be on hand and provide

support to the manager,

staff and centre as required.

“The staff is amazing,”

says Richard. “There are

nine permanent staff and

two regular relievers.

They are key to the centre,

making it what it is today –

a sustainable centre within a

supportive community.”

Millie’s House currently has two centres

in Wellington and one in Christchurch.

The benefits of being part of multiple

centres means the West Melton centre and

staff will have access to more resources and

be able to collectively come together with

staff from other centres for professional

support and to share ideas and stories.

“We recognize each centre has its own

uniqueness and we value that,” says Su.

“Our aim is to work with the current

West Melton team to continue to provide

a quality and fun learning centre for our

families and children.”

The West Melton

Kindergarten, Nursery

and Learning Centre

offer three separate

areas: nursery care

for babies to infants

aged 0 to 2 years;

Kindergarten for

children aged 2 to 3 ½

years; and Learning

Centre for children

aged 3 ½ to 5 years. For

more information, call

Have a lot of fun with filo pastry

FILO PASTRY is easy to use and

you will end up with a lovely

light, crisp pastry if you follow

these rules.

Work fairly quickly and if you

are called away while you are

rolling the parcels, cover the

unbuttered stack with a tea towel

to prevent it drying out.

If the pastry is very cold, it

will be more fragile and tend

to crumble, so give it 20min

to come to room temperature

before you open the packet.

Three Cheese and Chicken

Filos

Ingredients

500gm chicken tenderloins

(you need 10)

50gm cream cheese

120gm feta cheese

25gm parmesan cheese

pepper

2 sundried tomatoes in oil

100gm butter

10 sheets filo pastry

Directions

Remove the filo pastry from

the fridge and let it come to come

to room temperature.

Begin by cutting out the sinewy

strip from the tenderloins. Place

the tenderloins into a large frying

pan on a high heat and fry for a

minute or so on each side so that

they are half cooked. You may

need a little oil in the pan to prevent

them sticking.

Place the cream cheese into a

bowl and crumble over the feta.

Grate in the parmesan and mix

this all together thoroughly with

a fork. Season with pepper.

Dry the tomatoes on kitchen

paper and slice finely. Melt the

butter.

Have all of this ready before

you open the packet of filo pastry.

On a large clean dry work

surface, lay out the filo. Remove a

sheet and brush lightly with melted

butter. Lay another sheet over

the top and brush this as well.

Place two of the cooked tenderloins

at the edge closest to

you and add a fifth of the cheese

mixture and a few of the chopped

tomatoes. Place on another tenderloin

and begin to roll them up

in the filo.

Fold in the sides and finish

rolling so that you end up with

a tidy parcel. Brush lightly but

thoroughly with butter and lay

on a baking sheet.

Continue in this way until all

the chicken and filling has been

used. You should have five parcels.

At this stage, you can cover

them and store them in the

fridge for up to 24 hours. They

can also be frozen for later cooking.

Be sure to cover them well

and as the pastry is quite fragile

when frozen. It is a good idea to

place them in a solid container.

Bake in a 200 deg C oven for

10-12min.

Keep an eye on them as they

will burst if they are left in too

long.

Mushroom strudel

Ingredients

25gm butter

1 small onion

250gm mushrooms

150gm cream cheese

100gm sour cream

salt and pepper to taste

75gm butter

filo pastry

Directions

Finely chop the onion and put

it in a frying pan with the first

measure of butter. Cook over a

medium heat until the onion is

soft but not coloured.

Rinse and trim the mushrooms

and slice finely. Add to the onion

and turn up the heat. Cook for

around 5min until the mushrooms

are starting to brown up.

Remove from the heat and add

the cream cheese. Let it sit in the

hot pan to melt a little before

stirring through. Stir in the sour

cream and a little salt and pepper.

Don’t mix it too much or you will

end up with a very unattractive

grey mixture.

Melt the second measure of

butter.

Lay out the filo pastry on a

clean, dry work surface. Take a

sheet off the top and brush with

melted butter. Lay a second sheet

over the top and brush this one

as well.

Fold your pastry into a rectangle

and brush again. Lightly mark

the rectangle into thirds, lengthways.

Place a large tablespoonful

of the mushroom filling just

above the centre line in the first

third of your pastry, then fold to

form a triangle. Keep folding in

triangles, tucking it quite tight so

there are no gaps at the corners.

Fold the end under neatly.

Continue in this way until all

the filling has been used. Brush

the tops of the triangles with butter

and place on an oven tray. As

with the previous recipe, they can

now be refrigerated for a day or

frozen for later use.

Bake at 200 deg C for 8min,

being careful not to over cook

them or the filling will burst out.

Navara that stands out in a crowd

NISSAN NAVARA N-TREK WARRIOR: Built for a serious

off-road challenge.

SALES OF THE traditional fourwheel-drive

double cab ute in

New Zealand are showing no sign

of slowing.

There are a multitude of

pick-ups in today’s market, and

competition between the major

manufacturers is fierce.

Most manufacturers offer dressup

kits and accessories that will

give your ute a point of difference.

There are also many choices in

terms of limited edition models

that complement the mainstream

range.

One of those is Nissan’s Navara

N-Trek Warrior, it’s full of kit and

adornments that make it stand

out in the crowd; it is bold, brash

and downright aggressive and it

also looks as if it is here to stay

such is the detail that has gone

into the model.

Alongside the elements which

make the N-Trek Warrior stand

out, it is also plush with a heap of

kit that also takes it up a level in

terms of refinement. Major features

include satellite navigation,

orange-stitched and two-tone

leather and cloth trim with heated

front seats, keyless entry and

ignition, rear and overhead view

camera system, touch screen display,

Apple CarPlay and Android

Auto, cruise control and all the

safety gear to earn it a five-star

Australasian New Car Assessment

Program safety rating.

Cabin comfort is high and

space is plentiful. The deck area

doesn’t compromise greatly the

rear seating area, and the rake

on those uprights is sufficient so

that travel in the rear over long

distances isn’t compromised.

It’s one thing to dress up a

model, but if those accessories are

going to hinder the working role

or its ability off-the-seal then I

can’t really see the point.

However, Nissan have gone one

step further with the N-Trek Warrior,

it’s four-wheel-drive ability is

enhanced through massive tyres,

the high profile Cooper rubber

(215/70 x 17in) affords substantial

off-road ability. Such are the size

of the tyres (32in in diameter)

that ground clearance has been

raised substantially up to 268mm.

Nissan had to do a lot of development

work to make these tyres

work on the vehicle, it required a

suspension lift and some alterations

so that the rubber wouldn’t

grab any of the mechanicals when

suspension travel was at its greatest.

The shock absorbers are also a

special specification for the Warrior,

providing that compliance

needed for comfort.

The result is a formidable offroad

ute in terms of looks and

four-wheel-drive ability. Now,

I’m not saying I evaluated the N-

Trek Warrior to an extreme level

off-road, I learnt many years ago

not to venture off the seal seriously

when alone, so I just poked

around a dry riverbed selecting

low ratio only to conquer a couple

of low shingle banks.

I can report, though, there

was little chance of challenging

the ride height or approach and

departure angles, the N-Trek

Warrior has substantial off-road

ability.

The engine is pretty much the

same unit which has been around

for a year or so now. It is a twinturbocharged,

twin-camshaft

four-cylinder unit which displaces

2298cc and has healthy power

outputs of 140kW and 450Nm.

Nissan also claims a seven-litre

per 100km combined cycle rating.

The trip computer was reading

around 10l/100km when I took

the test car back to the dealership.

There’s been little doubt that

utes are becoming more car-like,

not so much in their in-cabin

features but in the way they drive.

The N-Trek Warrior can be

pushed into a corner with little

fear. What Nissan’s engineers have

done with the coil spring-located

rear axle is genius. It is load bearing

to cater for that heavy item,

yet as a vehicle it has control and

• Price – Nissan Navara

N-Trek Warrior, $76,990

• Dimensions – Length,

5385mm; width, 1920mm;

height, 1895mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2298cc, 140kW, 450Nm,

seven-speed automatic.

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

9sec

• Fuel usage – 7l/100km

balance not generally experienced

before in a vehicle of this type.

The Navara N-Trek Warrior

lands here at $76,990, it tops out

the 10-model range that, incidentally,

starts at $31,990.

I had the evaluation ute for a

week and quickly came to enjoy

its stature. Sure, at almost 5.4m

it is a big vehicle and that needs

to be taken into account in close

confines, those standard metered

car parks in our city are a bit of a

challenge. It’s also a bit of stepup

into the cabin proper, old age

making that just a little bit harder

than it needed to be.

Nevertheless, there are many

advantages in owning a ute, I

used the Warrior to shift some

of my daughter’s belongings as

she transferred from one flat to

another.

With all of its enhancements

the N-Trek Warrior will most

certainly interest recreational

enthusiasts and those buyers who

want a ute for commercial use.

Proposed Selwyn

District Plan

Because

it matters.

We want to hear what you think

of the Proposed District Plan.

You may not think the Proposed District Plan is relevant to you – but it is. Because it matters.

Why? Because the District Plan is a 10-year rule book which controls almost everything you do on land across the district, and how you do it.

For example, it regulates where you can develop land in Selwyn. Or how you can protect our native flora and fauna. And how you can look after our cultural

and historic heritage for future generations to enjoy.

You need to check the District Plan if you want to subdivide your land.

Or run a business from home.

If you want to build a new house, you need to see where on

the section it can be located and how high it can be.

So how does the Proposed Plan affect you?

Visit selwyn.govt.nz/districtplanreview and find out more.

Have your say by 5pm on Friday 11 December.

Because it matters.

My property matters

Know your zone

A district plan says what activity and development can happen on land. It does this by categorising land into different zones and then setting policies and

rules on what can be done in a zone. For example, whether you can subdivide your land or how many buildings you can have on it or what kind of activity

you can run on it.

develop land

in Selwyn?

Can we subdivide our land?

to here include flooding, earthquakes, wildfire, and coastal erosion and inundation. Natural hazards

can affect people, property, infrastructure and the wider environment. As a result all local councils

around the country are required to assess and manage the risk of natural hazards. This is to stop any

inappropriate development or land use in areas with the highest risks from flooding or other natural

hazards. It is also important that landowners are aware of natural hazards that might affect their land or

their plans for any future land development.

The Proposed Plan covers:

· Flooding

· Coastal erosion and inundation

· Geotechnical hazard

· Wildfire.

Is our property at risk

from any natural hazards?

My district matters

Looking after our natural environment

Selwyn is an area rich with natural features and landscapes, from the Canterbury Plains and Southern Alps to

the Rakaia and Waimakariri rivers and the coastal lagoon of Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere. It’s important that our

natural environment is protected from inappropriate land use and development, while at the same time ensuring

it continues contributing to people’s economic and social wellbeing.

How can we

look after native

flora and fauna?

Mike, ecologist from Lincoln

The Proposed Plan covers:

· Natural features and landscapes

· Indigenous biodiversity (including native plants,

bush and wetlands)

· Coastal environment

· Surface waterbodies

· Sky glow.

Looking after our heritage and culture

Selwyn has experienced several waves of settlement by Māori and Europeans over many years. As a result there

are sites, buildings and structures in our district which are of cultural or historic value to individuals, families, iwi,

rūnanga and communities.

The Proposed Plan covers:

· Historic buildings, structures and sites

· Notable trees

· Sites and areas of significance to Māori.

How do we protect Selwyn’s

historic heritage?

Joe and Tracey, heritage building owners from Courtenay

Do I need a resource consent?

· Can I build a family flat on my property?

· Can I build a tiny home on my property?

· Can I build a two-storey house?

· What are the rules for building a fence on my property?

· Can I run Airbnb or other visitor accommodation on my property?

· Can I subdivide my property?

· What are the noise limits in Selwyn?

Private, Spacious, Safe and Secure!

3 1 1 2 2

Handy to everything but suitably sheltered from the hustle

and bustle, this immaculately presented home is offered

to the market by proud owners who have committed to the

next chapter in their lives.

Inside, this spacious home plays host to three bedrooms

(master with double tiled shower, double vanity and walkinrobe),

a well-appointed bathroom and a modern kitchen

complete with stainless steel benchtops and walk in pantry.

The open-plan kitchen/living/dining area has excellent indoor/

outdoor flow and is complemented by an office/ teenager’s

retreat. Large windows flood the home in natural light, while

a heat pump and a log burner ensure it’s cosy and warm even

on the coldest of winter nights. The easy care section was

designed to minimise upkeep and maximise leisure time, with

private, sun-soaked outdoor entertaining areas providing the

perfect spot to unwind with family and friends. The icing on

the cake is the internal access double garage with an additional

workshop/storage space (see floor plan).

The location is a vibrant one, to say the least, with an abundance

of shops, cafes and eateries. The university is just a short distance

away and the weekly Lincoln market draws visitors from all over

the district.

Well-presented, low-maintenance homes in this super convenient

location are always in demand, and interest is sure to be high.
