IMPRESSIVE: Lincoln’s Jacob Douglas will head to the US next month after testing a Toyota single-seater race car

on Sunday.


LINCOLN teenager Jacob

Douglas will take his next

step towards his motor racing

dream when he travels to the

United States next month for his

formula 4 debut.

The 16-year-old enjoyed a

second day of testing with the

Toyota FT60 putting in around

80 laps in both wet and dry

conditions at Hampton Downs,

Waikato, on Sunday, in preparation

for the US trip.

Douglas, a multiple New Zealand

kart champion, impressed

both his management and Toyota

Gazoo Racing New Zealand

team at the recent Christchurch

test day, enough to warrant another

run at Hampton Downs.

It also helped him and his

team make the decision for

him to travel to the US under

the wing of Kiwi Motorsport’s

Garry Orton and Teena Larsen

to test a a formula 3 car and test

and race the formula 4 machine.

While tens of millions are

planned for a range of projects

in the LTP, including new

Students’ fight for battered men


students have started a petition

to persuade the Government to

fund refuges for men who are

victims of domestic violence.

Brooklyn Cavanagh and Jade

Frankland started the petition

three weeks ago and it has

already attracted more than

1000 signatures.

The year 13 students are

aiming to reach the 10,000

signatures required for the

Government to formally

consider the petition.

“Domestic violence is

often hidden behind closed

doors, and victims are

sometimes afraid or, in the

case of men, embarrassed, to

come forward and seek help,”

Brooklyn said.

“Domestic abuse comes in

many different forms, from

verbal to physical, and can take

place over a short period to over

many years,” Jade said.

Currently, it is only women’s

refuges that are funded by the

Government, which left the 15

per cent of victims of domestic

violence, who were men, with

very little support.

The pair initially became

interested in the topic as

Flu still possible in spite of big decline

• By Susan Sandys

IT IS POSSIBLE flu is still

circulating in the community,

in spite of a lack of laboratoryconfirmed

cases, says a Lincoln


Dr Denis Dumaine

said less

testing at medical


could be one of

the factors contributing

to low

confirmed flu



cases this year.

He said doctors

had been

encouraged to test for Covid-19

at the first sign of respiratory

symptoms. Patients were not

interested in being tested for the

flu, and the Ministry of Health

did not recommend testing

for flu in patients negative for


“We can’t detect what we don’t

test for,” Dumaine said.

“As a consequence, it is absolutely

possible that we have had

more cases of flu than the few

reported in New Zealand.”

However, there had been a

dramatic decline in what doctors

at his practice would see in a

normal year, prior to the pandemic.

They had only seen about

10 cases they suspected could be

flu-related this year.

World Health Organisation,

UNDETECTED: There may be flu cases in the community which have not been picked up

due to testing focused towards Covid-19.

National Influenza Centre, at

Environmental Science and

Research director Dr Sue Huang,

was unable to confirm there had

been less testing for flu this year,

with no figure available on how

many tests were done.

However, she said there had

been other surveillance systems

for flu besides the laboratory

testing, and these also had not

picked up flu.

These included hospital-based

and cohort study (about 2000

participants) surveillance.

There have been just three

cases of laboratory confirmed

cases of flu in New Zealand so

far this year, as of last week, all

detected in MIQ. This compares

to the median number of

laboratory confirmed cases

from April to September, 2015

to 2019, of about 5000. Numbers

started to drop last year during

lockdown, and there were only

two cases from October to


Rolleston Medical Centre

practice manager Vicki Bool

welcomed the lack of flu, particularly

as the practice was busy

with patients anyway, and was

swabbing up to 30 people a week

for Covid-19.

“It’s good we don’t have it,

because you are not confusing

it with Covid and people

aren’t panicking, it’s good to

know it’s not flu,” Bool said.

University of Otago, Christchurch,

virologist Dr Lance Jennings

said the lack of flu in New

Zealand was reflected globally.

It was a mystery as to why it was

happening, even in the face of

international border closures due

to Covid-19.

“We might have expected

it if we had an influenza A

pandemic, because we have

seen it before, but with this

virus (Covid-19) spreading

globally, it’s unexpected,”

Jennings said.

In the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic,

some other flu strains had


While reduced air travel and

border management controls

were considered by many to be

a cause, Jennings personally

thought it was due to the

phenomenon of a dominant

virus, in this case Covid-19,

filling an ecological niche and

not leaving any room for flu


Jennings did not rule out a late

surge this winter from flu. There

were four strains of influenza

viruses circulating globally,

albeit at a low level. These were

two A subtypes and two B lineages,

which were covered in this

season’s flu vaccine

“As we know with influenza,

we always expect the

unexpected,” he said.

anticipating a successful 2021

season after low snow levels last


Two of the district’s six skifields,

Mt Olympus and Temple

Basin, failed to open at all last

year, due to the lack of snow.

Bad luck struck again recently

for Mt Olympus when the recent

Canterbury floods caused slips

and landslides on the access


Members at the Windwhistle

Winter Sports Club, which

operates the skifield, were in a

race against time to repair the

road in time for opening in late


They launched an online

fundraising campaign at

BoostedSport about 9.30am

Tuesday last week. Within hours

they met their $30,000 goal, and

by 2pm Wednesday had reached

the “stretch goal” of $50,000. By

Monday morning it had reached

more than $76,000.

Vice president Tim Cookson

said the response had been “unbelievable.”

“It’s absolutely blown us away,”

Cookson said.

“We have to go like crazy now

and get this road sort of smashed

into shape,” Cookson said.

Emergency repairs were estimated

at $30,000, while the extra

funds would help with more

permanent repairs which would

be undertaken after ski season.

The skifield, which was established

in 1932 has 528 members.

Fresh snow cover on the

mountain hinted at a good season


“Everything is locked

and loaded for a really

good season, we just need

to get this access road

sorted and a wee bit more

Cookson said.

expected this season, scheduled

to begin July 17, to be “awesome.”

The road and the skifield were

ready to go, there was a good

team on board, and new events

were planned.




In May, Lincoln Envirotown “launched” two exciting competitions

which challenge people to use their creative skills to highlight

environmental issues:

The first of these is the Selwyn Waste Art Competition

This new competition has been instigated at the request of a local

business who has provided generous prize money. It is open to all High

School students who attend school in the Selwyn District or those of

High School age who are home schooled in Selwyn. Students must

work individually or in pairs. The art pieces must be assembled or

constructed from previously used materials which otherwise would

have likely gone to landfill.

We thank the Selwyn District Arts and Culture Coordinator who has

worked with us on this project and look forward to viewing the variety

of works that come out of this interesting competition.

More information regarding the rules, some health and safety

advice, and timelines can be found by visiting Eventbrite or Lincoln

Envirotown’s Facebook Page or Website. Interested participants are

asked to register by the end of July but pieces do not need to be

completed until August 13th when they will be set up in the stadium of

the Rolleston Community Centre and judging will take place.

All the artwork will be on display for the public to view at the

Community Centre on Saturday 14th August. It is envisaged that

some work will be exhibited at various locations for a short time after

the competition.

We hope that people will enjoy participating in this thought

provoking project and look forward to seeing the creativity generated.

“Yes, climate change is a worry,

it’s having an impact on the snowline,

but we are still a storm-based

ski industry,” Kriek said.

He and a couple of friends

had stayed overnight on the

skifield during the recent floods.

Throughout the storm, they had

run from culvert to culvert with

shovels to unblock them and protect

the access road.

was hoping for 60 open days this

winter, after being able to open

only nine days last year.

“It’s shaping up pretty well, a

nice cold start, plenty of regular

snowfalls so far,” Timbrell said.

TIM WRAIGHT New Wood For Old Iron

Exhibition at Little River Gallery 26 June – 27 July

Tim Wraight is a musician and artist from

Marahau. He works primarily in carved wood,

a medium he has loved since childhood. As a

child he was surrounded by works created by his

great-great-grandfather John Henry Menzies of

Menzies Bay on Banks Peninsula.

In 1990 he was offered the opportunity to train

with traditional Maori master woodcarver John

Mutu, who he worked with for the rest of that

decade. He still works for iwi in the Nelson/

Golden Bay region making traditional works for

their marae and public art installations.

This has influenced the way he

works since, and although his

personal art practice has

moved away from

the traditional, the

methods and way of

making reflects this


The works for this

show “New Wood

for Old Iron” at Little

River Gallery take old

iron and steel tools

and gift them new

intricately carved and

decorated handles. This is his way of honouring

the role these hand tools have shaped our places

and environments in the past, when hard work

with simple but effective tools made our places

and grew our food. It is also a rejection of the

ease with which we now alter our landscapes

with massively powerful machinery and the

damage we can so easily inflict on our fragile


Tim learnt to use these types

of tools from his grandfather,

an old-time farmer who also

lovingly crafted wonderful

handles for his tools. This

show also honours those who

worked with muscle power

and honed skills to do what

was needed with these tools

to sustain their lives.

FUTURE PROOF: A zone will avoid overcrowding at Springfield School,

which is undergoing a rebuild.

Springfield School to

get enrolment zone

• By Susan Sandys


is less likely to become

overcrowded in future as

the Ministry of Education

prepares to introduce an

enrolment scheme.

Principal Keri Steele

said the school’s roll had

been growing steadily, but

it “ballooned” last year to

56 before dropping back

to 40 this year.

Steele said the ministry

noted the increase and

wanted to make sure there

were only local pupils attending

the school.

Officials recently met

with the school. They

found there were only

three families attending

who now lived outside

the local area, and those

families had moved there

from the local area after

their children started

school at Springfield.

Steele welcomed the enrolment

scheme proposal,

believing it would bring

the school into line with

other schools in the area

which already had zones.

She understood it was

now mandatory for all

schools to have enrolment

schemes. For Springfield,

a zone would help future

proof the school, which

is undergoing a rebuild,

against large roll fluctuations.

“I do (think it’s good),

in terms that local children

will be going to local

schools because that’s

the way it should be,” she


The ministry is consulting

with the community

on introducing the enrolment


A spokespersons said

it was to assist the board

of trustees “manage the

risk of overcrowding,

provide a fair and

transparent process for

enrolment and to ensure

we are making the best

use of schooling facilities

across the network of

local schools.”

Readers respond to the proposed

discharge local committees

volumes, the loss of valuable land for food


We have both worked within the

community of Lincoln and have seen

the population grow from under 1000

to approximately 8000 at present. – Jim

and the Reverend Francie


Not only am I very saddened by the

closure of the Lincoln Maternity Hospital,

as several our grandchildren were born

there, and it is such a friendly place, but I

am also very concerned about the threat to

stage! And this show has 30 scene changes

that need to flow as seamlessly as possible.

Director Marilyn Ollett says

it has been an absolute

pleasure to be working

with the creative team at

Centrestage Rolleston

and with such a great

group of actors, in bringing

Blackadder II to the stage.

“The stage to tv script

adaptation comes with

some inherent challenges.

After all, a change of scene

Then there is the challenge of portraying

such well-known characters without them

becoming a caricature. Let’s face it; there

can only ever be one Rowan Atkinson!

And, not least, the fact

that many people are so

familiar with the series

that they know what is

coming next! But this

series is a true classic

comedy - so well written

that that feeling of

anticipation just heightens

our enjoyment.

So, whether this is

Dairy Support, Grazing and Views

Suitable for various uses, this 26.6733ha block is currently used as a

dairy support block. With its grazing history and the added benefit of

cover under the Central Plains water scheme nutrient umbrella, this

property is well placed to continue dairy support.

The property has a delightful five-year-old three-bedroom home

sun with a full-length verandah running along the north side - a very

enjoyable place to sit for a coffee and enjoy the amazing views of the

mountains. Open-plan living, dining and kitchen, family bathroom,

separate toilet, plus laundry. The home is heated by a free-standing

log fire and heat pump.

Out the back of the farm is an old 10m x 3m (approximate) shed.

Stock and domestic water (six units) comes from the district scheme,

whilst the irrigation is from Phase 1 of the CPW Scheme.

Hororata is a much-loved and central Canterbury farming location

A special ceremony was held at the Tai Tapu Community Centre

where 102 people were welcomed as citizens of Aotearoa.

The group were those who received their citizenship last year when

the Ministry of Internal Affairs hit pause on citizenship ceremonies

because of the Covid-19 global pandemic.

All new citizens who received their citizenship during that period

were sent a citizenship certificate from the Ministry of Internal

Affairs to mark that they had become citizens, but missed out on

the full ceremony.

The evening was opened with four songs performed by the Tai

Tapu Primary School Kapa Haka group. After a formal welcome

from Mayor Sam Broughton each new citizen was presented with

a certificate marking the occasion and shared food and celebrated

together with their families and friends.

Mayor Sam Broughton said it was important to mark the occasion

with a special recognition, especially with the ceremonies not being

able to go ahead last year.

“The citizenship ceremony is a special time for our new citizens

and we didn’t want anyone to miss out. It’s also something we

value as people of Waikirikiri and citizens of Aotearoa. We aim to

be a welcoming district whether people are passing through or

living here and that includes marking their special occasions such

as becoming citizens.”

Prebbleton roundabouts construction continues

Construction for the new Prebbleton roundabouts is moving into the next phase as work on the

redesigned roads begins.

Isaac Construction Ltd began work in March to build the two-lane roundabouts and other road works

needed at the Springs Road/Marshs Road and Shands Road/Blakes Road intersections.

Work has been progressing steadily, with all the major earth works, such as installing underground power

and other services, now completed at Shands Road/Blakes Road. The building of the new, wider road

and lane layout with additional lanes, including a separate cycle lane, has begun. Despite delays from the

recent rain, the roundabout currently remains on track to be completed by the end of July.

Separate to this work, Christchurch City Council has begun road works on Shands Road east of the

Christchurch Southern Motorway with Shands Road now one-way going east along this section of the

motorway. A detour is in place for traffic travelling west towards Selwyn. Christchurch City Council

expects this one-way system to be in place until 15 September.

For the Springs Road/Marshs Road roundabout the majority

of the earthworks have been completed. The remainder are

expected to be completed in the next few weeks, with the

new road layout expected to begin in July.

The roundabouts are expected to cost a total of $9.7

million, with Waka Kotahi/New Zealand Transport Agency

funding covering 75% of the cost. The Council will cover

the remaining cost for the Shands Road/Blakes Road

intersection, while the balance for the Springs Road/Marsh

Road intersection will be split between the Selwyn District

and Christchurch City Councils.

After 61 years of service there is a new boat in town on the LII/Ararira River.

The Council’s weed cutter the Ellesmere Queen has been replaced with a new custom-built boat, which

has had its first outing to help keep the river clear this month.

The Wilton 2020 is named in honour of Wilton Tyson, a long-standing L2 Drainage Committee

member. His son Murray Tyson has taken over as the operator of the boat and manages the weed

cutting operation.

The weed cutter is used for crucial maintenance of the Ararira / LII river, keeping the river clear of

weed and flowing freely. The weed cutting operations is part of the Council’s land drainage work which

covering nine classified land drainage schemes across the district.

This year the work has cleared weed out of the L2/Ararira River from Moirs Lane just south of Lincoln

to Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere. Controlling the weed keeps the river level under control and prevents

flooding and other drainage issues in the catchment.

The Wilton 2020 has more power compared to

the old boat and was designed specifically for

this application.

Local company Martin Hydraulics won the

contract to build the new boat, working with the

Council and our operator to provide a custom

built boat that matched the needs on this river.

Weed cutting operations generally occur in the

late summer to autumn depending on weed

conditions. This year's work finished on 17 June.

On the Roads

Ford repairs are taking place on Coaltrack Road between Bridge Road and Greendale Road

Is business your calling?

If you’re a big thinker, a natural leader or a

born organiser, business could be your perfect

career choice.

Ara Institute of Canterbury has a wide

range of business study options designed to

equip individuals with the skills needed to

take advantage of the many opportunities

available in the business world. Qualifications

include certificates, diplomas, degrees

and graduate certificates and diplomas in

specialties such as project management, sales

and marketing, accounting, HR and change


School leaver Rachel Fraser decided she’d

love a job in an office environment. She

studied a diploma in business at Ara and

now uses the skills and knowledge she gained

organising appointment bookings for the

South Canterbury District Health Board.

She says of the diploma: “It was filled with

relevant information that directly related to

the field, as well as skills like communication,

time management and effective planning

which I find myself using every day. It was an

amazing experience.”

Olivia Smith worked in hospitality for 12

years before studying a business diploma

at Ara, specialising in administration and

technology. “Deciding to study business

opened up so many opportunities,” she says.

Olivia did a lot of her learning in a

simulated office environment. “The tutors

were amazing - they adapted to each students’

learning style. The highlight was realising I’d

suddenly acquired a massive number of skills

that I could use every day in all areas of my


Olivia is applying those skills in her role as

a customer service officer at ACC. “I work in

the very role I was trained for, and I can do it

with confidence.”

Mike Roberts discovered a passion for

project management while working as a

software tester. With the support of his

employer, he studied a graduate diploma

in project management at Ara where he’d

previously gained his IT degree.

Mike says the industry project he

undertook as part of his postgraduate course

was a highlight of his studies. “Being able to

demonstrate your learnings by working in a

real-world setting is so valuable. It’s a fantastic

opportunity for students.”

STRIDING OUT: Moment of Kaos hangs on to win by a length at

Addington on Thursday night.

Patience pays off as giant

trotter records first win

• By Dave Di Somma

IN ALL his years in the

game Bruce Negus has

never trained a horse the

size of Moment of Kaos.

“He’s the biggest horse

I’d ever seen,” said the

Burnham-based Negus,

“he’s 18 hands . . . he’s a

big friendly giant.”

And the eight-year-old

is now a race winner after

taking out the Airpark

Canterbury Trot at

Addington on Thursday

night for driver Jessica

Young-Grant. The win

coming at his 15th attempt,

and after two seconds from

his previous four starts.

“I call him The Monster,”

said Robert Hanna, who

co-owns the horse with

his mate Denis Mills: “I

thought he’d win a race

and you have to be patient,

but it was a great thrill to

win at Addington.”

That’s because Hanna

is one of the track staff

at Addington, and, after

owing horses for about

40 years, it’s his first win


And patience is a key

part of the Moment of

Kaos’ story.

Hanna bought the horse

for $800 three years ago

after seeing it at the workouts.

It was then revealed that

it had quarter cracks so it

was turned out at Hanna’s

property at Sefton in

North Canterbury.

Two and a half years

later they thought they

better do something with

the horse and it went to

Negus about three months

ago. It then ran third in his

“debut” at Methven

on April 26 behind Crème

De La Crème and Tom


Remarkably that placing

came more than three

years after his previous

race day appearance. He

had had five unplaced runs

for trainer John “Coaster”

Howe between January

2017 and April 2018.

Now eight, “Kaos” does

have some breeding on

his side. His mother Just a

Moment is a half-sister to

millionaire trotter Take A

Moment (39 wins from 67


Thursday night’s win

came at start number 10

for Negus.

“He found the line

good,” said Negus, “he’s

eight but he might get better


Said Hanna: “We’re hoping

he’s not finished,” said


Negus plans to race him

next in a junior driver race

and then take him south

for Forbury Park’s last race

meeting on July 8.

“I’ll be taking a full

truck,” said Negus, “I have

a lot of good memories of

racing there and it should

be a good night.”

Negus continued his

pleasing season at Addington

Raceway on Sunday

when recording a winning

double, boosting his winning

tally to 26 this term.

He bookended the

meeting courtesy of

Dreaminsover in the

Mid-Winter At Addington

(amateur drivers) Mobile

Pace (2600m) and

Dashtothebeach in the

First Direct Taxis Mobile

Pace (1980m).

Dreaminsover appears

to have found his grade

in the amateur races and

has developed a great

association with northern

amateur reinswoman

Cheree Wigg, with the

partnership recording four

wins to date after Sunday’s


They had to do it tough

in their latest outing,

sitting parked for the first

lap before securing the

trail at the bell.

Dreaminsover was then

able to utilise the passing

lane and hold off Franco

Hoffman to win by a halfneck.

“I thought he was

extraordinarily brave,”

Negus said. “It looked a

tough run, but he loves a

good fight.

“He shouldn’t have

paid that money ($25)

because he has been going

great races with no luck.

I was pretty confident he

could go a good race, and

running 3.15, parked for a

lap, he deserved it.”

Negus was also pleased

with Dashtothebeach’s win

after her front-running


“She was driven to her

strengths because she is

a pretty tough stayer,” he


“She is a three-year-old

filly with a bit of ticker.

She is not up to the very

top ones, but she is pretty


Negus was on the brink

of a treble, however, 13-win

mare Sundons Flyer came

up a nose short in the Avon

City Ford Trot (2600m).

“She just got beaten a

nose in the last stride, and

normally she isn’t that

good in the wet,” Negus


The broodmare paddock

is beckoning Sundons

Flyer, however, Negus said

he would like to line her up

on New Zealand Cup Day

one last time.

“I have been looking for

an excuse to retire here for

two years, but she keeps

going really good races, so

she is still racing,” he said.

“I would like to have

her in Cup Day because

she has won twice and the

mark she is on now she

would be competitive.

“I will just keep ticking

her over. If she wins

between now and then we

will have to think about

that because a foal out of

her would probably have

some value.”

Vaccinations for

the rest of Aotearoa

New Zealand

The COVID-19 vaccination rollout for the general population

starts from the end of July.

Our COVID-19 vaccination programme has built momentum

steadily since February. We are vaccinating around 100,000

people a week at the moment. In the second half of the year

we hit top speed and everyone in New Zealand aged 16 and

over will be able to be vaccinated.

Moving to the general population

So far, vaccinations have been made available to those most at

risk of getting COVID-19 to limit the chances of it getting into the

wider population.

With more vaccine supply coming on, and having ramped up our

infrastructure, vaccinations for everyone else in New Zealand

aged 16 and over (the general population) start from 28 July.

This is a very large group of people. To make this flow smoothly,

we will break this down by age bands.

All people aged 60 plus can book their vaccinations from 28 July.

Then, two weeks later, people who are 55 plus. From there, new

age bands will be opened up every 2–3 weeks based on confirmed

deliveries of the vaccine and the speed of rollout to earlier groups.

By mid to late August, invitations should be open for people over

45. By mid to late September, invitations should be open for those

over 35, with everyone else being eligible from October.


Most people will get a direct invitation to book – either by email,

text, phone call or in the post. You will then be able to book through

Book My Vaccine, a new national booking system that will be online

from 28 July, or phone a new national call centre. Availability of

booking slots (the date, time and place you can be vaccinated)

will vary between district health board (DHB) regions.

Once you are eligible to be vaccinated, you can be vaccinated

at any time. There is no cut off.


Even if your age band isn’t open, everyone aged 16 and over will

be able to go to Book My Vaccine to register for an invitation from

28 July. Registration means we will be certain to have your correct

contact details and when your age group is opened, you will get an

invitation telling you it’s your turn to book.

Getting a vaccination

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Receiving an invitation

We’ll call or send you an email, text or letter to invite

you to book.

Make your booking

From 28 July, go to Book My Vaccine or call the new

national call centre to book both doses, or to register

if your age band isn’t open yet.

Get your vaccination

Have your first vaccination dose.

3–6 weeks later have your second vaccination dose.

If you don’t hear from us, or are concerned, you can register

for your vaccination through the new national Book My Vaccine

booking system at any time from 28 July.

Important dates

28 July People 60+ Vaccinations open

11 August People 55+ Vaccinations open

Mid to late Aug People 45 + Invitations should open

Mid to late Sept People 35+ Invitations should open

October People 16+ Invitations should open

Other ways to get vaccinated

As we go through the year there will be other ways for people

to be vaccinated. These will include workplace vaccinations and

other targeted vaccination events across the country. For some

remote rural communities we will vaccinate all age groups at the

same time to make it easier for them. Our successful whānaucentred

approach to vaccinations will continue for Māori and

Pacific communities and those with disabilities.

Nurse back in the wild ADVERTISEMENT



A few years ago Kathy was

worried everything would

all come to a grinding halt.

A natural go-getter, her love

for the wild rugged outdoors

was calling but every form of

exercise really was taking its

toll. “I just love to get out into

nature and push myself, but

even on the easy rolling walks

I was struggling to keep up”.

Nursing responsibilities were

becoming increasingly harder

and some of the old climbing

activities took a back seat. What

Kathy wasn’t prepared for was

the feeling that the older she

got the more her joints needed

support, that she would have to

slow down and scarily it all felt

overwhelming; thankfully this

didn’t turn out to be the case.

Now in her seventies, Kathy

is back out doing what she

loves whilst still working in the

nursing home. “All of us work

hard, and joke around having a

laugh, then it turns serious and

they ask me, ‘Seriously Kathy,

you used to be so worried about

getting older - what’s changed,

what is your secret?’”

Joy to be found in winter planting

THE START OF winter and a

great month for planting new

strawberries, fruit trees, berries

and roses. Garden centres are

overflowing with new season

plants – plan carefully and enjoy


Strawberry varieties and


Select a few different varieties

to spread the harvest time. Strawberry

plants are classed as either

day-neutral or short-day.

Day-neutral varieties (try ‘Aromas’

and ‘Temptation’), will fruit

any time of year that temperatures

allow. Short-day varieties

(try ‘Camarosa’ or ‘Camino Real’),

initiate flowers during the short

days of spring and autumn, with

the main crop coming in early

summer and another in autumn.

Some varieties such as Tioga

(short-day) are excellent planted

in summer – the plants then establish

and produce a heavy crop

the following summer.

Before planting, incorporate

compost into the existing soil,

then create mounds 80-100cm

above the existing ground level.

Plant into these mounds and

space plants 15cm apart.

Fruit trees

New citrus, pip and stone

fruit are now available at garden

centres. Select trees that grow best

in your particular climate and

location. Look for sturdy, healthylooking

trees with a strong stem

and no signs of pests or diseases.

Also check how tall your

tree will get and if your variety

requires another tree for pollination.

You can extend harvest

times by planting trees that fruit

at different times, giving you a

steady supply throughout the


Before planting, remember soil,

site, sun and shelter. Choose a site

with well-drained, friable (crumbly)

soil. If your soil is not ideal,

add in compost and gypsum to

help with drainage. Also consider

raising the height of the fruit tree

when planting to avoid pooling

around the trunk.

Your fruit tree needs full sun

for at least six hours a day for

maximum ripening of fruit, and

shelter from the wind is essential.

Fruit trees only flower once a year

and in a windy position, flowers

can be blown off the tree which

means no fruit.

Wind also affects bees accessing

flowers for pollination – no bees

mean no pollination and fruit set.

Berry fruits

Many berry fruit plants are now

available including blackberries,

blueberries, gooseberry, blackcurrant,

raspberries, and red and

white currents. Some berry fruit

grow better in colder parts of NZ

so check with your local garden

centre for advice.


Two of the most important rose

tasks this time of year are pruning

and planting. Depending on

the weather, pruning should be

carried out by the end of July. Remove

all inward facing branches

and small twiggy growth. Shorten

back main growth by at least half,

pruning to outward facing buds

(the direction of new growth).

Always remove any old prunings,

leaves or petals from under your

roses to reduce overwintering

diseases. Spray with a copper

compound after pruning to reduce

blackspot and rust infection

in summer.


Perennials are plants that survive

for at least three years. New

plants are now available from

garden centres. With existing

herbaceous perennials (growth

dies down each year but regrows

in spring), such as Shasta Daisies

and Salvia etc, it is time to divide

and replant them.

Trees and shrubs

new plantings carefully! Allow

room for new plants to mature,

plant, choose healthy and sturdy

Help is at hand for

those difficult jobs

Rolleston-based Juice Electrical

provides a superb service with a team

of top quality and experienced master

electricians, who will listen to what you

need, turn up on time and complete

your job to the highest standards.

“We are lucky to have such a dedicated

team out there every day, saving our

customers time and money and working

hard to ensure our customers get the

result they want,” says Greg Horton who

owns the company with his wife Helen.

Over the years, Juice has become

known for happily taking on the more

difficult jobs.

“We’re not shy of getting stuck into

a complex job or tricky work site, and

we’ve built our solid reputation on

solving problems. Juice electricians are

perfectionists who are always looking

for opportunities to add to our skills and


As they are locally based the added

bonus is that they do not have a service

vehicle charge in Rolleston.

Security lighting is one of the many

services Juice Electrical provide and they

have plenty of different options to suit all


Greg recommends LED (light emitting

diode) lights for not only security but

also up-lighting, deck lighting and

floodlights and can advise on the best

type and where they should be placed.

He also suggests installing sensors so the

lights come on automatically.

LED lighting is a lot easier and less

expensive to install because there is no

need to dig trenches for wiring and LED

lights are fast becoming the preferred

option for indoor lighting as well.

“The technology has taken off and

is replacing halogen and incandescent

bulbs for the home. Low voltage LED

technology has advanced from being

initially used in calculators and then

torches to being suitable for lighting

anywhere in the home and we highly

recommend them.”

Working hard to ensure their

customers get the result they want

and enjoy a high-quality professional

service is at the centre of everything

they do at Juice Electrical. For your

Saving time, money and water

on your irrigation needs

Winter is a great time to think about

installing your watering system with

some of the latest cost effective and easy

to use automated options, according

to Phil Hudson from locally owned

company Freeman Irrigation.

The company installs their pipes with

a Mole Plough which provides a no mess

solution to the installation.

“With this ‘invisible’ trencher you

wouldn’t know we have been on your

property within just a couple of weeks.

It’s perfect for the winter time,” says Phil.

The latest technology

comes into play with

automated WiFi – the

sprinklers can be connected

to weather station forecasts

so if rain is expected the

amount of water is reduced.

By operating your system

remotely, the flow can

be adjusted to suit the

conditions, saving water

and money.

“We have a range of

smartphone controllers

and rain sensors that can

be fitted to most systems,

allowing to have easy

control from anywhere. If you want to

save money and conserve water a good

rain sensor is an affordable solution,”

says Phil.

Heading into the cooler months is

also a great time for maintenance on

your irrigation systems before spring

arrives. Some of the basic problems

include clogged sprinklers; leaking

sprinklers and valves; obstructed

sprinklers; leaking/blocked solenoid

valves; overspray onto footpaths, streets

or buildings; design problems; missing

Clean air technology meets low

emission standards

Winter is here, so if you need to

turn up the heat, the Blaze King from

Heatstore brings long lasting, sustainable

warmth to your home.

A cosy home is a happy home and

a blazing wood fire that lasts all night

can make all the difference. Blaze King

fires do just that with new catalytic

technology enabling the fire to produce

thermostatically controlled heat all night


“People really enjoy waking up to a

warm home without worrying about the

fire going out during the night. They can

then add more wood to the fire when

they get up, turn up the heat and they’re

in a cosy home no matter what the time

of the day is,” says Heatstore commercial

manager David Chalklen.

Blaze King log burners can last 12

or more hours without having to be

stoked up and work by using a clean air

technology that raises the temperature of

the smoke to burning point.

“Being able to generate heat from

otherwise wasted energy in smoke

allows for a much cleaner burn, easily

meeting and raising the bar for log

burners available in New Zealand and

Environment Canterbury’s ultra-low

emission burner (ULEB) standards.”

Customer feedback has been

phenomenal with customers saying that

they never had a fire that heats the whole

home and keeps going all night. Even

those who live in rural areas and don’t

need to meet the low emission standards

buy Blaze Kings.

Blaze King has a 40-year history of

making wood fires and a 30-year award

winning history of making catalytic

wood fires, mainly to heat homes in the

freezing Canadian winter. They are also

very energy efficient burning up to 30 per

cent less wood than a conventional fire.

Heatstore’s showroom is at 2/472

Blenheim Road has over 20 different

types of log and pellet burners on display

and the team are happy to provide their

Octavia wagon a lot of car for the money

I GOT INTO a conversation just

recently with a work colleague,

he’s also a car enthusiast, when

time allows we are always talking

about things automotive.

After asking me how I was

enjoying the Skoda Octavia

evaluation car, he raised a really

good point by saying out of any

car manufacturer, Skoda has

probably done the best job of

turning around its image.

That harks back decades, the

central European company had

a reputation that wasn’t entirely


However, today, it is a class

leader in terms of design,

quality, reliability, efficiency and


None of that surprises me,

Skoda, now manufactured in

what is known as the Czech

Republic, fell entirely into

Volkswagen Group’s hands in

2000. Since then the company’s

product has been on a constant

programme of improvement,

bearing in mind that Volkswagen

took an interest in Skoda in 1991,

and the product that has been

leaving the factories since then

has been outstanding, with the

Octavia being a classic example

of that.

In New Zealand we have two

Octavia wagons – Style TSi and

RS. Put simply, they are both

four-cylinder petrol-powered

with a turbocharger driving to

the front wheels, the TSi has a

1.4-litre unit, the RS has a 2-litre

engine, and it is the subject of this


The TSi has a power output

of 110kW and drives through

an eight-speed automatic

transmission. The RS gets

something special under the

bonnet, it has the engine that

makes the Volkswagen Golf GTi

so special. In the Octavia it is

rated with 180kW and 370Nm,

it drives through a seven-speed

direct shift transmission.

What makes the RS engine so

special are the points at where

the outputs are reached, power

peaks at just 5000rpm extending

to 6500rpm, maximum torque

is available all of the way from

1600rpm to 4300rpm. The

consequence of all of that is that

there is so much immediacy at all

points of the rev band, you don’t

need to have the engine singing

high to extract acceleration.

Such is the bottom end power,

the engine wants to pull from

low revolutions and that is a

good thing, it feels strong under

the accelerator pedal and hauls

solidly right to the red line.

However, that’s not necessary,

it’s great to manually (paddles)

short-shift the gears and feel

the wagon’s tailgate.

SKODA OCTAVIA RS: Performance-based family wagon.

the turbo forcing air into the

cylinders vigorously.

In terms of acceleration, the

Octavia wagon will launch to

100km/h in 6.7sec and will

make 120km/h from 80km/h in

4.1sec. These are feisty times and

rewarding to feel, performance is

constantly vivid. Of course, the

Octavia has various drive modes

that can be selected at will, all

are self explanatory – comfort,

normal, sport and driverprogrammable


I used normal and sport most

of the time I was driving the

wagon, simply because there is

a nice audible throb delivered

constantly in those modes. It isn’t

loud, but it does let you know

something special is sitting up


Normal and sport modes don’t

deliver a harsh ride. Yes, the

Octavia wagon has progressive

dampers which alter the way the

wagon rides. Personally, I couldn’t

tell a lot of difference, in all

modes the ride is compliant and


In order to beat the weather

bomb that was forecast for

Canterbury recently, I took to the

roads at dusk, and as darkness

encroached misty drizzle made

the roads greasy in places. They

weren’t ideal conditions, but it was

a good test of how the Octavia

wagon handled the conditions.

• Price – Skoda Octavia RS

wagon, $57,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4689mm; width, 1994mm;

height, 1468mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,


1984cc, 180kW,

370Nm, seven-speed DSG


• Performance – 0-100km/h,


• Fuel usage – 6.6l/100km

I have a friend who has just

traded his Volkswagen Passat

wagon for a 2017 Octavia RS, and

he tells me how much he misses

the 4Motion system of the VW,

he says the RS doesn’t put power

to ground as well when the road

surface is slippery.

The conditions I drove in were

ideal to test that theory, and I

think it’s fair to say that Skoda

has done a lot with the latest

generation Octavia to make

it work when grip is low, the

electronics working well so that

I never had any issues. I guess

that also has a lot to do with the

quality of the low profile Good

Year tyres (225/40 x 19in), they

have a solid tenure and offer

plenty of feel so the driver is

fully aware of what is happening


On board, the Octavia is chock

full of technology. The evaluation

car was carrying a lot of extras,

and it’s fair to say Skoda’s option

list is extensive.

However, even in standard

form the Octavia wants for little,

it carries all of those wonderful

features that have been developed

through the VW Group and,

what’s more, the fit and finish is

absolutely sublime. I particularly

like the gearshift lever, well it’s

more like a button really, just

requiring a gentle flick of a switch

to activate. The Octavia makes

you feel good to be in and it

looks after you with high comfort

levels and user-friendly in-cabin


It is also a genuine fiveseater

car, and the load space is

cavernous and adaptable so that

all of those belongings we tend

to carry with us can be stored


That’s just one of the reasons

why I like wagons and I

particularly like the Octavia RS.

Its performance and versatility

make it many different vehicles

in one.

I’d also be very interested

in driving the TSi wagon,

sometimes those with what

would be deemed the mainstream

model often turn out to be the

pick of the bunch.

In all cases it’s certainly time to

forget all those old disparaging

Skoda jokes.

Development 5,000m2 + home

Looking for a subdividable land opportunity, land banking, or

more room to play - then check this out.

Perfectly placed within the heart of one of Rolleston’s premier

neighbourhoods, this property presents a rare opportunity to

own one of the last large sections in the area. Living 1B zoning

will benefit developers, while the short walking distance to

Foster Park, the Aquatic Centre & Rolleston College makes this

a desirable location to call home. Selwyn Council invites you to

consult with them on your development plans, which they have

indicated could potentially accommodate a four lot subdivision,

with further intensification possible on a case by case basis.

This smaller scale could present a great opportunity if you are

looking at starting off in development.

The spacious four bedroom 230sqm (approx.) Stonewood

Home is the sections only occupant. Built in the early 2000’s

from brick and tile, the floorplan provides generous amounts

of space throughout. The open plan kitchen - living - dining and

separate lounge set the scene for quality living and relaxation.

The living and lounge independently open onto the large

paved deck area where you can survey your large grassed area

interspersed with established trees for privacy.

The master suite features two separate mirrored walk in robes

on the way through to the ensuite where two basins with their

own mirrors sit astride the tiled spa bath which takes centre

stage and is a definite place to luxuriate. That’s not to mention

the separate shower and toilet for convenience. The bedrooms

are completed with three further doubles and their built in

wardrobes, while plentiful hallway storage cupboards allow you

to keep life in order. The main bathrooms shower and bath plus

separate toilet look after your family and guest needs, while

the triple car garage including laundry with exterior clothesline

provide the functionality and mancave opportunities.

The private front boundary fence was constructed in 2019 and

compliments the remainder of this fully fenced section. With

so much on offer this property needs to be inspected to be

appreciated. I look forward to meeting you at an Open Home.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Thinking about building?

Do your research and make a list


List the key points you would

like in your home such as:

• number of bedrooms, living areas and


• size of garage e.g. double or triple

• open plan living, or one or more

separated living spaces

• kitchen dynamics including whether a

pantry or scullery is a must

• wardrobes – size and type e.g. walk-in

robe in master bedroom

• office or study nook needs

• laundry separate or in the garage

• cladding and roofing types

• storage facilities within the home

including cupboards, storerooms and

attic trusses;

• type of heating and whether under floor

heating, a ducted system or a log fire

• double or thermal low-emissivity


• spaciousness of entryway

• indoor/outdoor flow

There are many decisions to be made when

building a new home. Most need to be made

before plans are lodged for consent and

construction gets underway. Housing companies

usually guide their clients through this process.

Whether working with a housing company

or calling on the assistance of an architect or

architectural draftsperson, there will be a lot

of decisions. The process will be easier for all

concerned, if you have done your homework

first. Researching and making a list will help

prepare you for the many decisions you will

need to make in a short space of time.

Research building trends and choices

This will help you get a feel for what is

available. Before deciding on your builder, you

will want to find out whether the company will

require you to choose from their existing library

of house designs and a set range of features and

fittings, or whether you will have the freedom

to have a more bespoke plan and to choose any

feature available on the market.

As you research, keep records of what you

might like to have in your own home. Initially,

you will be idea gathering. Take photos of

aspects within house designs which appeal to

you along with the fittings you like.

Think of each room in turn and consider your

family requirements, noting down features you

definitely want to include.

Take into consideration fittings such as

exterior doors; style of door and handles;

window catches; kitchen joinery and handles;

bench top options; positioning of sink, oven,

microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator within

the kitchen; bathroom fittings such as the type

of vanity, shower and bath; size of windows

and how to capitalise on the sun; positioning of

rooms to allow family interaction and also quiet

areas; whether to have a deck or patio and type

of seal for your driveway and paths.

Before sitting down with the designer, ensure

you have completed your research and have a

clear idea of what you want, remembering your

final choices will be influenced by your budget,

size of section, and product availability. There

may also be design limitations influenced by

building regulations and

construction capabilities.
