Call for cycleway after

hit by

vehicles

A LINCOLN University student is

backing calls for a cycleway to be given

urgency on the township’s busy Gerald

St.

Ye Yuan was lucky to escape serious injuries

when she was knocked off her bike

two years ago by a motorist who failed to

stop for her as he was turning right into

Challenge Lincoln.

Now Lincoln University ecologist Mike

Bowie has suffered the same fate as he

biked to work. He was left with a cracked

helmet and suspected broken rib.

But work on a dedicated cycleway

won’t start until the 2027/28 financial

year which Bowie and Yuan say is

“absurd.”

Police talk to teenager over assault

• By Susan Sandys

POLICE HAVE made a major

breakthrough in a spate of car

thefts in the district – some of

which were used to ram parked

vehicles for fun.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said police were speaking

to a number of youths who

“are assisting us with our

investigation.”

The offending began about two

months ago, he said.

There were a number of youths

involved from Selwyn, breaking

into and stealing cars in the

district and in Christchurch.

“The number of vehicles would

be well into double figures,”

Harker said.

The youths were also allgedly

responsible for ramming a

number of vehicles parked on

the roadside in Lincoln.

There had also been vehicles

stolen from around Christchurch

and left abandoned in Lincoln

and the surrounding areas.

“This is still under

investigation. No charges have

been laid as yet and we are still

collating all of the offences,”

Harker said.

The Selwyn Times understands

being broken into.

A youth aged about 16 to 18

was holding a petrol can. Three

other youths ran from the

shed and the elderly man was

punched in the eye.

the teenagers have been copycatting

for the thefts and vehicle

Police have been extremely

because of the teenagers’ antics.

A Lincoln resident told the

Selwyn Times he was out for his

regular nightly walk two weeks

ago when a vehicle almost lost

control on Southfield Drive.

He had been subsequently told

it was likely to have been stolen.

“I could hear it coming. As it

approached Ryelands Drive from

the Te Whariki end, the driver

almost lost it. I stopped (on the

footpath) as it came towards me.

I could see its right wheels lift

slightly and I thought: ‘It’s going

to flip’.

“I knew I’d have a split second

to decide which way I was going

to go to avoid it. But the driver

held the car down and it kept

Altering

supermarket

labels earns

man trespass

• By Susan Sandys

A 65-YEAR-OLD Selwyn man

has admitted altering labels on

goods at a local supermarket,

police say.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said in the last few months the

man had swapped labels on

goods on about 14 occasions, in

order to get the benefit of lower

prices.

“Customers need to be

aware that the self-serve checkout’s

computer systems and

cameras are very smart,” Harker

said.

Checkout computer systems

not only work on weight to pick

up discrepancies, but also barcodes,

products and labels.

The goods were a variety of

products, mainly those packaged

in-house.

CCTV footage was also used.

“Once identified, it is a simple

exercise for the supermarket

staff to review transactions

and security cameras,” Harker

said.

The alleged offender will

appear before a community

justice panel, or the district

court. He has also been

trespassed from the supermarket

for two years.

DAFFODIL DAY: John Chamberlain with daughters Courtney and Jess and baby John

at Hadstock Farm.

Growing daffodils a family affair

SPRINGSTON flower grower

John Chamberlain and his

family at Hadstock Farm

are preparing for the Cancer

Society’s Daffodil Day on

August 27.

Hadstock Farm supplies

most of the daffodils for the

society’s annual fresh flower

fundraiser for the entire

South Island – about 30,000

bunches.

The society sells bunches of

daffodils to businesses across

New Zealand.

“Judging the volume required

and making sure the daffodils

are flowering for that time of

the year is a bit of a challenge,”

Chamberlain said.

“We grow approximately 40

different varieties of daffodils

and have imported some earlier

flowering varieties to ensure

that we have flowers ready in

time for August.”

Chamberlain said that

Hadstock Farm had been supplying

flowers to the society for

about 30 years. This year it also

supplied bulbs for the Cancer

Society to sell in February and

March.

“I think they are wonderful

people to deal with,”

Chamberlain said.

Hadstock Farm has been

owned by the Chamberlain

family since 1876.

Chamberlain’s grandson,

also named John, is the seventh

generation of the family

associated with the farm. His

daughters Courtney and Jess

both work on the farm, as do

other family members.

“We started growing tulips in

1937 and then daffodils in the

1950s,” Chamberlain said.

“For daffodils, we start

picking them at the end of May,

and then the last of the varieties

finish flowering by mid to late

October,” Courtney said.

SECTION PRICES have

doubled in Rolleston in the last

year.

Section sales in the town

and wider district appear to be

bucking a nationwide trend of a

gradual reduction to the rate of

increase to real estate prices.

CoreLogic NZ’s house price

index showed last week that the

nationwide

growth figure

dropped from

7.2 per cent at

the end of June

to 5.9 per cent

at the end of

July.

Matson and

Allan Real

Estate Ltd

director Chris

Flanagan said there was currently

no indication of Selwyn’s

section price rises slowing.

He had not seen the market so

buoyant and aggressive in the

about 35 years he had been selling

in the district.

“Even in the last two to three

months, it’s just sort of gone a bit

crazy really,” Flanagan said.

The high prices at Rolleston

were encouraging potential buyers

to look further afield, and the

increases were reflected across

the district.

“There’s been a significant

increase in section prices,

Rolleston, Leeston, Dunsandel,

Darfield, it’s right across the

board,” Flanagan said.

Examples included the 32-section

Hanks Run at Rolleston.

Sections in stage one, with an

average size of 750 sq m, sold

for an average price of $361,000

about two months ago. Sections

in stage two, with an average

size of 695 sq m, sold for an

average of $385,000 per section

about four weeks ago. Six to 12

months prior, sections of that

type and size were selling for

$170,000 to $180,000.

Soon the agency would be

selling some 700 to 800 sq m

sections on Brookside Rd on

behalf of the district council,

and it was possible they would

fetch more than the Hanks Run

sections.

In Dunsandel, the Dunsandel

Estate subdivision had 29 sections

averaging 900 sq m with

an average price of $235,000.

Twelve months ago they would

have been worth $160,000.

At Darfield, the agency had

just sold stage three of Torlesse

Estate, which had sections ranging

from 2000 to 5000 sq m.

Stage three had nine sections,

there had been an average of

four offers received for each,

and the price they sold for was

$350,000 to $400,000.

would not have to install septic

tanks.

His company had not had any

recent section sales at Lincoln

and Prebbleton, but strong

residential house sales indicated

those townships were generally

following the same trend as the

rest of the district.

Buyers in the district ranged

from locals wanting to upsize

and build, to building companies

wanting to take house and

land packages to the market.

“It’s purely a supply and

demand thing, there’s a real

shortage of sections and people

are paying top dollar for them,”

Flanagan said.

“Even building companies

are prepared to go a bit further

afield now to secure sections.”

gives his

opinion

on the

proposed Rolleston

flyover

The purpose of putting a

bridge across the highway is to

allow the highway traffic to flow

and that traffic can cross the

highway and railway from and to

Rolleston without disruption.

The main benefactors will

be the highway traffic and the

local people will have to put up

with the inconvenience of the

proposed bridge.

The proposed bridge will not

provide for traffic to enter the

highway from Rolleston towards

Christchurch.

The proposed plan is a convoluted

mess, especially for traffic

wanting to travel from Rolleston

to the south side of Jones Rd.

With the Hoskyns Rd extension

across the railway line, I

proposed a bridge that would

eliminate the rail crossing and

allow traffic to cross the highway.

It was rejected as there was not

the traffic concerns that there are

today.

The drawing today is a modification

of my original bridge.

There is no need for traffic lights

and it allows the uninterrupted

flow of traffic on the highway.

The present drawing allows for

traffic from Rolleston Drive to

travel up and over the highway

and rail to Hoskyns and Jones

Rds, both east and west.

It also provides for traffic to

traffic can enter the highway and

Traffic from Jones or Hoskyns

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Rds can travel to Christchurch

via the down ramp or travel

over the highway to Rolleston

Drive or continue the roundabout

and enter the highway to

head south.

Traffic from Christchurch can

use the left hand lane to enter

Rolleston Drive or use the right

hand ramp to cross the highway

and rail to connect Jones or

Hoskyns Rds.

Traffic from Burnham wanting

to enter Jones Rd can enter the

exit ramp to cross the rail.

To enter Rolleston Drive,

traffic will either stop on the

designated space on the highway

and turn right when all is clear,

or take the exit lane up to the

bridge turn at the roundabout

and cross the highway to Rolleston

Drive.

The main bridge would have

to be at least 5m high to clear

trucks and the rail traffic.

Without the measurement of

the distance from Jones Rd to

the rail line, the incline of the approaches

may be too steep.

Wednesday August 11 2021 Selwyn Times

The Jones/Hoskyns Rds

intersection roundabout may

have to be raised a couple of

metres, to ease the incline, and

then finished off by continuing

the approaches down onto those

roads.

There is plenty of room to

build such a combination of

bridge and approaches. The

lane ways are scaled at 4m to

allow for buses and the biggest of

trucks.

Additional lane widths would

allow for bicycle usage and

pedestrians to safely cross the

highway.

There is one obvious problem

that would be encountered

during construction that is

maintaining traffic flow.

There are several answers to

this problem. The section of

the bridge that relates to the

highway could be built without

undue interference with traffic

movements.

It is just the rail and Jones Rd

section may present a problem.

But the design of support

columns for the elevated part of

the bridge and, if necessary, the

use of a temporary rail crossing

on the Christchurch side, can be

worked out.

This design is far simpler than

the proposed one, and would be

far easier for traffic to negotiate

without compromising sections

of Jones Rd.

Mayor Sam

Broughton

talks

about the

contentious

issue of

water

ownership.

On page 12, councillor

Grant Miller gives his

opinion

Last year the Government

unveiled its proposal to move the

ownership and management of

water services from local councils

into the hands of large water

services agencies.

Selwyn will fall into a new organisation

that would cover most

the South island, called Entity D.

Safe drinking water

When the Government made

the reform decision they said

that it would save ratepayers

money in the long run and that

it would also result in better,

safer services for the nation’s

drinking water, wastewater and

stormwater infrastructure. They

also said that investment of $120

to $185 billion is needed over the

next 30 years.

So where does that leave us, a

district which already has some

of the most affordable drinking

water and newest water services

infrastructure in New Zealand?

The answer is – we don’t know

just yet and we have not made

any decisions.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Public engagement vital

The Government has said that

becoming part of an Entity is

voluntary but they have not told

us when we need to make that

decision – indications are that it

will be some time before the end

of the year. This is clearly a significant

decision as about $600

million or 30 per cent of our

assets will be handed over and

we still don’t know how much

influence we will have over local

decisions about our water service

provision if there is a change.

$22.3 million for Selwyn

Public engagement is vital if

we are going to get this decision

right, however the Government

has not firmly signaled that they

think we need to consult – last

week I pressed them on this issue

and hope to have an answer

soon. There is much to weigh up

including an incentive of $22.3

million under the proposed plan

which we can spend on climate

adaption, housing and community

well-being. If we opt out we

lose this.

The Government has provided

us with data that shows the case

for change is compelling and

OPINION 11

Meeting water needs in our community

PURE: One of the reasons of the reform is to provide safer drinking water.

Wednesday August 11 2021 Selwyn Times

I believe that is probably right

for New Zealand. However, our

council is charged with making

the right decision for Selwyn at a

local level and we need to ensure

we would be better off under the

proposal and not paying twice

for our good investment in the

past, while also supporting the

needs of other districts.

We are told that in Selwyn the

average household bill for water

services could be much higher by

2051 if we do not become part of

the Entity ($3480 alone or $1640

as part of the new Entity) however,

we need to fully understand

the assumptions behind these

numbers and all the implications

before any decision.

Best for our community

Last week I met with mayors

from across the South Island and

Ngāi Tahu to discuss these issues

and to seek a way forward. We

agreed to work together to do all

we can to ensure that any possible

Entity meets the needs of

all our communities. Whichever

direction this reform takes I will

continue to ensure Selwyn is at

the front of discussions when

it comes to deciding how we

progress.

To find out more we have a

dedicated Q&A page on our

website and I will be providing

regular updates over the coming

weeks and months.

Focus on Our Futures

Lincoln Envirotown Trust is inviting people to get creative in

thinking about our Future and our Environment by entering the

Focus for Future Environmental Film Competition

This competition has been taking place annually for many years

now, and has remained very popular. Each year we see different

aspects of people’s environmental concerns highlighted by short

films. It is open to everyone and is challenging fun for both groups

and individuals.

At the “Oscar like” awards evening where all films are viewed, it

is always very clear that the production teams have enjoyed the

project. Last year’s awards opened with an introduction from an

overseas entrant before we viewed their film. There are category

prizes as well as the overall Kea Trophy for the best film of the year.

Last year this was won by a newly formed Lincoln Junior Enviro

Group.

A visit to Eventbrite; https://focus-for-future-2021.eventbrite.co.nz

will provide an Entry Pack with all instructions. Films should be

submitted by 6th September and the Awards Evening will take

place on Friday 24th September.

We look forward again

to your entertaining and

OPINION

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Will water reforms suit Selwyn district?

Springs

Ward district

councillor Grant

Miller gives

his view on

potential water

reforms

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What

is you opinion on the

potential water reforms.

Email barry@starmedia.

kiwi. Keep responses to

200 words or less

YOU MAY recently have seen

a number of advertisements on

the television regarding Three

Waters reform. Watching these

you may have felt that water

services locally were in dire

straits and in urgent need of

upgrading.

These advertisements contain

an element of truth, but also a

large portion of generalisation.

So what is the Three Waters

Reform (3W) proposal and

what does it mean for us here in

Selwyn?

Three Waters refers to the

provision of water, sewerage and

stormwater services that are currently

undertaken by the district

council.

Government has taken the view

that nationally the 3W infrastructure

is under performing on

an environmental and financial

basis, with insufficient provision

for replacement and growth.

Driving this view has been the

non-performance of a number

of schemes. It is clear from the

Government analysis that a

number of communities will not

have the resources to affordably

upgrade and replace existing infrastructure

to the environmental

standard that we all expect.

The 3W Reform proposes that

four large entities be established

into which all local government

water assets would be transferred.

For Selwyn, this would

mean that our infrastructure

would be transferred into the

entity which covers most of the

South Island.

These entities would be publicly

owned. Governance would

be a combination of Ngai Tahu

and South Island local body

members.

The rationale is that a larger

entity would provide economies

of scale, deliver a better level of

service, and be cheaper over the

longer term.

If we take this national view

and apply a Selwyn lens, what

does this mean?

GROWTH:

The PInes

Waste

Water

Treatment

Plant was

constructed

to cater for

growth in

the district.

In the past, Selwyn had small,

localised, sewerage plants. We

also had smaller scale water

reticulation networks based on

the townships. Stormwater was

disposed of into waterways or to

ground.

Explosive growth made it clear

that significant infrastructure

investment was required. The

modern Pines Waste Water

Treatment Plant was constructed,

which enables all the major

towns in Selwyn to be connected

with additional capacity for

growth.

Drinking water has undergone

significant examination in Selwyn.

We have had challenges in

the past, notably E.coli outbreaks

in Darfield and Springston.

Council has upgraded vulnerable

rural supplies as well as managing

urban growth. In my view,

Selwyn now has a water network

which provides a high quality

service at an affordable cost.

The district council must

decide if reform is in the current

and future interests of our

district. Selwyn has $600 million

of asset with $40m of associated

debt which would be transferred

to the new entity.

Currently I remain unconvinced

that the gains proposed

under the reforms will be

realised for Selwyn, and believe

that the downside of transferring

$600m of community assets to a

third party will be high.

Given that this is a strategic

asset, I will be advocating for

public consultation on this issue.

Celebrations in store at West Melton Airfield

• By Susan Sandys

CANTERBURY AERO Club

West Melton Branch members

are looking forward to their

airfield’s 50th

anniversary.

Chairman Paul Jarman

said it would be a

special day, celebrating

the vision of those

who converted a rough

piece of land to the

valued asset members

enjoyed today.

The West Melton

Airfield, which opened in July

1971, is regularly referred to as

the club’s “jewel in the crown.”

The branch operates a fleet of 27

aircraft and is one of the biggest

flight training organisations in

New Zealand.

In February, the club hosted

the Flying NZ National Championships

at the airfield, involving

Paul Jarman

a large gathering of about 100

competitors and 40 aircraft,

including the first electric powered

aircraft to be flown at West

Melton.

For the 50th anniversary

event, the branch will host

a fly-in of former club

aircraft, a display of classic

cars, competitions, formation

flying, and agricultural

aircraft flypast at the

anniversary, on September

25.

The branch’s Piper Cub

BNL 65th birthday would

correspond with the celebrations,

and the much-loved aircraft

would also regularly take to the

skies throughout the event.

In the hangar, the archives

committee will set up a display of

West Melton’s early days.

An anniversary dinner will

be held at the clubhouse in

Christchurch.

The branch’s Piper Cub BNL,

photographed recently at Mt

Cook Airfield, will have its 65th

birthday celebrated at the

branch’s 50th jubilee.

West Melton Airfield hosted a

Explore ‘Our Climate Future’

in Darfield exhibition

Darfield Library and Service Centre is host to a new exhibition highlighting climate challenges and

empowering communities to make positive change.

The ‘Our Climate Future’ exhibition is part of ‘It’s time, Canterbury’ – a joint climate change

awareness initiative launched in May by the regional council Environment Canterbury and

Canterbury’s district and city councils.

The exhibition has been developed by the Ministry for the Environment. It's an interactive display

with panels and monitors showing climate change information. It also features iPads for people to

sign up to the Future Fit tool, a practical carbon calculator which makes it easier for households

to reduce their carbon footprint.

The display helps people understand why climate change is happening and how it could shape

our communities, our families and our economic wellbeing.

It also looks at how we can mitigate the effects of a changing climate to choose a better future for

ourselves and for the generation to come.

The exhibition concept is based on the whakataukī: ‘Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi, engari he toa

takitini. My strength is not that of a single warrior but that of many.’

'Our Climate Future' will be at Darfield Library and Service Centre until Saturday 21 August before

heading to Tūranga in Christchurch.

No decision yet on water reforms

You may have heard about the Three Waters Reforms – and wondered what it’s all about.

Ever since residents of Havelock North fell ill with a gastroenteritis outbreak in 2016, all council water

services across New Zealand have been in the spotlight. The government is proposing to address the

urgent challenges in the water sector with a top to bottom reform of our drinking water, wastewater and

storm water infrastructure and management.

The proposed reform would shift the responsibility for water services away from individual councils into

four new multi-regional entities, with an investment programme of up to $185 billion.

Under the proposal Selwyn will become part of ‘Entity D’ which covers most of the South Island. In a

move to ensure that no council will be worse off, the government has offered a stimulus package and

Selwyn’s share of that will be $22.3 million. To receive that funding, the Council must agree to hand

over our three waters assets and revenue to the new entity. Currently an option exists to opt out of the

reforms and go it alone.

So what’s Selwyn’s position? As yet we haven’t made a decision on our participation. At the moment

we are continuing to analyse the data provided by the government about their proposal, so that we can

better understand the impact on our residents.

At present our water infrastructure is among the best in the country and we want to make sure our

residents are not left worse off under any changes. We want to make sure the community continues to

have access to the services they currently receive, with a quality of service at least as good as it is now.

It’s also important that we protect our community’s voice, for example on matters like chlorination and

level of service standards. Once we have all the data we plan to seek your views on the proposal before

we make a decision.

Have you registered your dog yet?

Dog registrations are due and owners of two-thirds of dogs in Selwyn have

made the most of the discounted registration fee this year. From 1 August

onwards owners have to pay the full fee and they have until 31 August to

register their dog. After that the Council may issue an infringement of $300

per dog. Any owner who is having difficulty with the payment of the fee

can contact the Council to discuss payment arrangements.

With the introduction this year of the new ‘One tag’ – a lifetime tag – it’s

taking a bit longer than usual to send out the tags. Owners should expect

to receive their dog’s new tag up to around two weeks after the payment

is made.

For more information on the dog registration visit Council’s website at

www.selwyn.govt.nz/dogregistration.

Rates accounts and

payment options

Rates invoices for the period 1 July 2021 to 30 September 2022

should have arrived in your letterboxes or inboxes by now.

You can check out the changes in your rates by visiting

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

If you pay by direct debit you should have received information on

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

long as you have sufficient funds in your bank account to cover the

payments on the due dates, you will not be charged penalties.

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

instalments: 15 September 2021, 15 December 2021, 15 March

2022 and 15 June 2022. Penalties are charged on instalments not

paid in full by the due dates, and there is a further penalty if rates

are not paid by 30 June 2022.

Your rates invoice details the rates assessed for your property

for both the Council and Environment Canterbury. The Council

assesses a general rate, based on your property’s capital value,

district-wide targeted rates, plus other targeted rates based on

where you live or the services you receive. We also act as an agent

for the collection of Environment Canterbury rates within Selwyn.

The average rates increase for the 2021/22 year is 4.5%, but this

will vary for individual properties. Rates take account of capital

values, as well any changes to your property, for example if you

have built a house on your section or changed your wheelie bins.

For more information about rates, including forms and payment

options, visit selwyn.govt.nz/rates or phone 0800 SELWYN (735 996).

Apply for a rates rebate

Ratepayers on a low income and who pay rates on the

property they live in may be eligible for a rates rebate.

If your gross household income to 31 March 2021 was

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

you live, you may qualify for a rebate.

If your income was more than this, you may still be eligible,

depending on the total cost of your rates and the number of

dependants in your family.

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

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

available from Council service centres. If you received a

rates rebate last year you will automatically be sent an

application form.

To apply, you will need to provide accurate details and

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

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

year ended 31 March 2021. You can apply for your rebate

at any Council service centre:

Darfield and Kirwee wastewater pipeline update

The construction of a new wastewater system for Darfield and Kirwee townships has started this week.

The majority of construction work is taking place in the road reserve, which may require some traffic

management including speed reductions. In some cases road closures may be required but detours will

be signposted. Aylesbury Road between Wards Road and Two Chain Road is the first affected road; it

will be closed until mid-December 2021.

The new pipeline will connect the townships with Pines Wastewater Treatment Plant in Rolleston. It’s

expected that construction will be completed by July 2022 for Darfield and August 2022 for Kirwee.

To see the latest progress on the project, and any road closures and detours, please visit Council

website at selwyn.govt.nz/darfieldkirweewastewater.

Black manuka is a

sign scale is present

UNSIGHTLY blackened

manuka plants are a sign

manuka scale may be

present.

Manuka blight is caused

by the Eriococcus species

of scale insect sucking

sap and exuding copious

amounts of honeydew. The

honeydew is then attacked

by sooty mould which can

blacken the leaves, severely

reducing photosynthesis.

One Australian scale insect,

Eriococcus orariensis,

was discovered at Orari

Gorge in 1937, hence its

scientific name.

The combination of the

sap-sucking by the many

scales on a plant and the

reduced photosynthesis

over a few years can kill

manuka.

This scale species appears

to have declined

due to a fungal pathogen

and has been replaced by

another less noxious scale,

Eriococcus leptospermi.

This scale species tends to

inhabit the new growth

tips, whereas Eriococcus

orariensis inhabit bark

crevices of trunks and

branches.

Adult female scales are

1.25mm long, oval-shaped

and reddish to light brown.

Female scales are wingless

and have antennae

with six segments. The

female has wax threads

that are produced from

pores on the abdomen and

she uses these threads to

construct a white felted sac

to enclose her body apart

from an opening at the

rear.

Over several weeks each

female lays about 50 eggs

which hatch within 30

minutes of being laid.

The nymphs or crawlers

settle on a suitable site

and insert their piercing

mouthparts to siphon the

sap from manuka.

Gymnasts take gold

• By Fiona Ellis

ROLLESTON 11-year-old

Cherry Zhu won national titles

at the recent New Zealand

Gymnastics Championships in

Auckland.

Cherry took gold in the level

six category after coming first for

her ball performance and second

for ribbon performance. She also

won gold in the grade four group

performance.

She was part of the Delta

Rhythmic Gymnastic Club

which performed well at the

championships. Her teammates

were Annabell Keith, Neve Hendry,

Sylvia Zheng, Faye LiChen

and Lexie Boon.

This was a strong result for

Lexie, whose injury earlier in

the year had prevented much

practice.

Club committee member

Rebecca Abrahams said the

young gymnasts had done well,

especially as qualifying for the

nationals was an achievement in

itself.

“I think it’s everyone’s goal,”

Abrahams said.

“They needed to not only

achieve a qualifying mark but

also be in the top 20 in New

Zealand at the end of the season

to be selected for Nationals.”

Club members also achieved

GOLDEN GIRLS: Cherry

Zhu (above) won the level

six category, while Neve

Hendry, Sylvia Zheng,

Annabell Keith, Lexie

Boon and Faye LiChen

took first place in the

grade four group in the

New Zealand Gymnastics

Championships. ​

second or third place in 13 other

categories.

“Sitting there waiting for

the results can be a bit of a

rollercoaster,” Abrahams said.

A highlight of the weekend

was coming together with other

teams from Canterbury, who

supported each other.

Even those that did not place

still had a good weekend, she said.

Competing taught many

good life skills, including

teamwork and how to deal with

disappointment.

The club’s success reflected

the hard work by the “amazing”

coaches.

“They have to be there the

whole time, and they spend

hours and hours thinking and

planning.”

Head coach Alesha Klaassens

said the competitors needed

plenty of confidence to get up

and perform in front of the

judges.

“I’m always very proud of

them,” Klaassens said.

Everyone worked hard,

with the gymnasts putting in

anywhere from nine to 15 hours

of training each week.

“We go in with no

expectations, it’s just a privilege

to be able to go.”

Events to help parents

• By Susan Sandys

SELWYN Parenting Network is

planning its inaugural Selwyn

Parenting Week for next month.

It comes hot on the heels of a

highly successful workshop held

at Rolleston Community Centre

last week, called understanding

and managing anxiety in tweens

and teens, which attracted about

130 parents.

Network co-ordinator Kate

Webb said the workshop and

parenting week was about giving

the district’s growing number

of parents the information they

were seeking on a wide range of

issues.

“It’s about empowering

parents to be able to parent

better and also having access to

resources,” Webb said.

Last week’s workshop had

been a great precursor to the

week.

Clinical specialist Catherine

Gallagher delivered much helpful

information for parents who

were dealing with more behavioural

issues as children reacted

to helicopter parenting, social

media and had concerns about

world issues, Webb said.

Network members were currently

collaborating with providers,

speakers and organisations

to facilitate the series of events

for the week beginning September

20.

Managing meltdowns, raising

digital citizens and enticing the

next generation of young volunteers

would be among the many

workshop topics.

SPORT

JO HERBERT made a return

to the driving ranks last season

after nearly a decade away from

the track and on Sunday at

Addington Raceway she was able

to fulfill her biggest ambition on

her return – 200 driving wins.

It was fitting that the milestone

was brought up behind Taumata

VC in the Woodlands Stud

Supports Canty Breeders Mobile

Pace as the four-year-old mare

was the primary reason for

Herbert’s return to driving.

“It is pretty special to win it on

that horse,” Herbert said.

“My uncle (Doug Herbert) bred

her and he is the reason why I

made the comeback because he

wanted me to drive her when she

raced.

“It has been a long process with

her, but it just made it a bit more

special today.”

Herbert was also pleased to

get the win in the colours of her

Ladbrooks employers, Colin and

Julie De Filippi.

A pioneer for female drivers

in New Zealand, Herbert won

193 races in the cart before she

was forced to step away from the

game more than a decade ago to

look after her son Brooklyn.

“At the time it was in the too

hard basket, he wasn’t that well,”

Herbert said.

“It got too hard, so I just

focused on him.”

Herbert wasn’t aware that she

was so close to 200 wins when she

walked away from the sport, and

it became one of her major goals

upon her return.

“At the time when I stopped

I hadn’t actually looked at that

(career win tally),” Herbert said.

“It was more that I had to do it

Herbert’s 200 wins comes after long absence

• By Joshua Smith

A TOTAL of 76 trainers and

drivers achieved personal bests

in the 2020-21 season.

A search of Harness Racing

New Zealand records for the

season show that 25 drivers had

their most wins in a season, as

did 51 trainers.

As well as having their

best seasons Ben Hope (40)

had his first Group One victory

with Muscle Mountain in the

Fred Shaw Memorial New

Zealand Trotting Championship,

as did Benjamin Butcher (44)

with Enjoy Me in the Sires’

Stakes 3YO Filllies Final, and

then B D Joe at the Harness

Jewels.

Second to Blair Orange (179) in

the premiership, John Dunn had

his best season in the sulky with

Jo Herbert

(give up driving) because of my

son. If I had known back then

that I was that close I wouldn’t

141 wins, including nine with

Five Wise Men and seven with

Sundees Son.

Tim Williams (93), Sam Ottley

(82) and Robbie Close (65) also

had their best seasons as did the

country’s stand-out junior driver

Sarah O’Reilly (57).

Of the trainers Robert

Dunn was a runaway leader

of the premiership, winning it

have given it up quite so soon.”

But a decade on she has fulfilled

her ambition of reaching 200

wins.

“It’s been a long time coming,

but I am glad to have got there,”

she said.

Herbert has been fortunate to

drive some quality horses over

the years and she said it is hard to

single out any one in particular,

but highlighted the Paul Kerrtrained

Chloe Hanover as one of

her favourites.

“I have driven some nice horses

and every win has been special,”

she said.

“But winning 11 races on

Chloe Hanover was pretty

special.”

Herbert said the thrill of

driving in several New Zealand

Cups has also been a highlight.

“I have driven in the New

Zealand Cup three times, my

for the second season in a row.

He had a career high

124 training successes,

eclipsing his previous best haul

of 121 in 2016.

Among the others to have

had their best ever seasons were

Arna Donnelly with 37, beating

the 33 she had in 2019. Among

Amber Hoffman’s best return of

23 wins was taking out the very

closest was fourth, but it is still

pretty special to drive in that

race,” she said.

While she is driving less

frequently these days, that is

exactly how Herbert wants it,

citing she has done her time

travelling to drive at various

meetings.

“I am actually quite happy,” she

said.

“A lot of the time I don’t like

travelling, I have done all of that.

If it is handy I will go, but I don’t

really go out of my way to get

drives.’’

Herbert wasn’t the only person

to reach a milestone on Sunday,

1 cup cherry tomatoes

1 tbsp cooking oil

150gm fresh spinach

1 tbsp butter

1/4 tsp garlic powder

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp freshly cracked black

pepper

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a

add the pasta and continue to boil

until the pasta is tender (about

seven minutes). Reserve a 1/2 cup

of the pasta water, then drain the

Turn the heat off.

Season with garlic powder,

nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper,

then toss to coat.


WHEN IT comes to planting,

it’s now time to get your strawberries,

potatoes, beetroot and

onions.

You can grow homegrown

onions pretty much anywhere in

the garden – they also grow well

in pots. But make sure the soil is

friable (goes crumbly when you

touch it). If it’s not, simply give it

a good dig over and add a bit of

compost and fertiliser.

Red and pukekohe longkeeper

onions need to be planted 10cm

apart. And if you’re growing them

in rows, make the rows 20cm

apart. Companion plant spinach

in between the rows. Or you

could try growing spring onions

in between.

They will be ready to harvest

much earlier at around six to

eight weeks, so will be out of the

rows before the larger onions

need the space. Simply, plant your

spring onions around 4cm apart

from the next.

You can harvest your spring

onions at any time. But the longer

you leave them the bigger they

will get until they go to seed.

Your larger onions will take

around 20 to 24 weeks to get

ready and you can tell when they

are because they start to pop

right out of the ground. If they

start to flower, we are commend

harvesting them as onions that

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

have started to bolt or go to seed

don’t store very well. Don’t worry

if they’re green, you can still eat

them.

If you’re planning on planting

potatoes this year, you’ll need to

’chit’ them beforehand, to give

them the best possible start.

Chitting your potatoes means

allowing them to sprout. We

recommend letting the sprouts

grow to around 10-15cm prior

to planting - which roughly takes

four weeks.

Strawberries are a Kiwi summer

favourite – get them in

now so that they’ll be ready for

Christmas.

For the best results dig some

strawberry food into your soil

prior to planting, then mound the

soil up in your garden bed, as this

encourages air circulation as well

as good drainage.

Plant your seedlings along

the moulds to encourage your

strawberries to hangover, and to

prevent the fruit from rotting.

Water regularly and apply a good

dose of strawberry food every

couple of weeks. If you’re planting

enough strawberries to feed the

family, plant four to five plants

per person. Mega bundles are a

New identity looms for Kia Carnival

IN THE YEARS I’ve been writing

about automobiles, only on

very rare occasions has a badge

changed. Most car makers are

very keen to keep their brand

identity intact and protect their

image even if the design is many

years old.

It came as some surprise then

that Kia is in the process of

changing its logo, the new design

is more stylised and abstract

than before and is certainly a

departure from the original

and it is now a genuine point of

difference.

So, take a good look, is this

Carnival the last Kia I drive with

the old badge? I don’t know,

but what I do know is that even

though it is about to get a new

point of identity, it still shares

the concept that it has made it a

people mover of choice for many

families and service providers.

The Carnival multi-purpose

vehicle has been around for

many years, it has been a popular

seven or eight-seater and the new

model hasn’t lost sight of that

original concept, it is versatile and

practical, yet it also has dynamics

which often disguise its bulk and

concept.

The Carnival arrives here

with a 2.2-litre four-cylinder

turbocharged R-series diesel

engine that has earned itself a

healthy reputation for power

and economy in other Kia and

Hyundai models. The old V6

petrol engine that has given

faithful service throughout the

Carnival’s life is not available in

New Zealand now, diesel is all

you can get. However, to me that’s

a good thing, the R-series unit is

an absolute cracker, it is strong

and silent.

There are three specification

levels in Carnival – EX, Deluxe

and Premium. The range starts

at $59,990 and ends at $74,990

for the Premium as tested,

in-between the Deluxe sits at

$69,990.

In terms of figures, the twincamshaft,

16-valve diesel has

148kW and 440Nm power output

to consider, it is rated with a

6.5-litre per 100km combined

cycle fuel usage rating and it

accelerates to 100km/h in 8.8sec.

These are impressive figures

considering the Carnival weighs

in bulky at just over two-tonne.

Drive is channelled through an

eight-speed automatic gearbox

through to the front wheels.

Yes, the Carnival is two-wheeldrive

only, and that is one of the

reasons why it can’t be considered

a sport utility vehicle. Therein lies

further appeal, many SUVs don’t

get used to their full potential. If

you do have a need to transport

several occupants frequently,

then the Carnival will do that in

comfort and style, making full

use of its design role.

BOLD: Black wheels on the Premium model give the

Carnival a sporty look.

KIA CARNIVAL PREMIUM: Versatile eight-seater with adaptable seating configurations.

IDENTITY: Out with the old and in with the new - Kia’s

logo going forward (right).

It is also extremely practical,

the seating configurations are

many-fold, the centre row is

adaptable for easy access to the

rear, and the rear seats also fold

down deep into a cargo area for

increased interior load space.

Not only does the Carnival

have on-board versatility, access

is also easy with automatic sliding

doors on each side, and a high-lift

rear tailgate.

At the other end, the R-Series

diesel is a tireless worker, it

develops all of its power low in

the rev range at 3800rpm, and

if you take into account that the

area of peak torque lists from

1750rpm to 2750rpm, you don’t

need to constantly work the

engine, it is happy slugging it out

at low revs.

Power through the

transmission is well harnessed.

Shifts are quick and smooth,

while the ratios are structured

for that healthy acceleration time

and the ability to sip fuel gently

at open road speed – 6l/100km at

100km/h with the engine turning

over slowly at just 1650rpm. The

driver can also choose an active

economical driving mode that

eases the load on the engine for

fuel efficiency gains. Take into

account as well the Carnival’s

72-litre fuel tank, long distances

can be travelled before fill-ups are

necessary.

In Premium specification, the

Carnival is fully loaded with

kit, much of it new-generation

equipment. There’s also a healthy

level of safety kit, both passive

and active.

Features for convenience and

comfort include full leather trim,

satellite navigation, triple-zone

climate control, electric seat

adjustment (also heated and

cooled up front), heated steering

wheel and reversing camera. All

of these features are included

in an ultra-modern interior

that relies heavily on operation

through the central dash touch

screen command centre.

I took the test car on my

normal inland route – State

Highway 72 – the scenic route

through to Glenroy. At both low

and cruising speeds, the Carnival

has quiet motion and a beautiful

ride, the front-strut and multiplelink

rear suspension has soft

spring and damper rates and, as

such, they absorb ruts and bumps

well. That along with the strongly

bolstered seat cushioning means

the ride is more than plush.

• Price – Kia Carnival

Premium, $74,990

• Dimensions – Length,

5155mm; width, 1995mm;

height, 1775mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

2151cc, 148kW,

440Nm, eight-speed

automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

8.8sec

• Fuel usage – 6.5l/100km

There is a little trade-off when

it comes time to tackle our

country’s tight and twisty corners.

The Carnival is large, which

means there is a lot of vehicle to

get around a corner in the first

instance. The body leans over

the suspension thanks to its tall

centre of gravity; however, the

weight transfer is gradual and

doesn’t affect vehicle balance.

There aren’t a lot of vehicles of

this type new in the New Zealand

market, and to be fair, demand is

spasmodic.

However, Kia has stuck with

the Carnival, and for those who

do travel as a group it is the

perfect choice and one that will

gain recognition with a wide

cross-section of the community.

Kia has styled the Carnival so

that it will appeal with its shape,

it has attitude, disguising well

the van-like look that has often

accompanied multi-purpose

vehicles and people movers.

modern chef’s kitchen where white subway-styled tiles offer

a superb counterpoint to classy black bench tops and gas hobs

provide instant heat.

Two light-filled living areas open alternatives for laid-back gettogethers

or more formal hosting joining with sunny decking

stepping down to level rear lawns on a 718sqm (approximately)

section.

Ideal for families of any age incorporating four bedrooms

and two trendy tiled bathrooms inclusive of master ensuite.

Faultless in presentation and convenient in location within

walking distance to schools, cafes and essentials in town plus
