Living in the aftermath<br />

of a fatal car crash<br />

• By Chris Barclay<br />

HE HAD TO learn to walk<br />

again, step by step.<br />

And Lindsay Morton’s return<br />

to driving was also approached<br />

with caution, by starting the ignition<br />

and reversing in the secure<br />

confines of the family property.<br />

Morton’s right ankle – and<br />

confidence – needed rebuilding<br />

after he was involved in a<br />

fatal crash at the intersection of<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> and Springston Rolleston<br />

Rds, where sunstrike was a contributing<br />

factor.<br />

The Lincoln 64-year-old,<br />

who underwent painstaking<br />

rehabilitation only to be<br />

made redundant a week after<br />

returning to work, is still scarred<br />

by another driver’s lapse of<br />

concentration as the sun rose<br />

over the district on July 14, 2020.<br />

Lincoln<br />

University<br />

finally<br />

reveals its<br />

Covid cases<br />

• By Barry Clarke and Susan<br />

Sandys<br />

LINCOLN University recorded<br />

361 Covid-19 cases from late<br />

February to mid-<strong>March</strong>, it can be<br />

revealed.<br />

The numbers have been released<br />

to the <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> through the<br />

Official Information Act.<br />

But the university has refused<br />

to break down the number into<br />

staff and students, citing privacy<br />

reasons.<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> is appealing<br />

the decision to the Ombudsman.<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> believes the<br />

public has the right to know that<br />

information. Late last month, as<br />

Covid cases started to skyrocket<br />

in the district, the university<br />

would not say how many cases it<br />

had.<br />

The university said the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

<strong>Times</strong> request for numbers<br />

would be treated as an OIA<br />

request, a decision the newspaper<br />

questioned at the time.<br />

The OIA is a tool for media and<br />

the public to access information<br />

from government departments<br />

and organisations. The<br />

department or organisation has<br />

20 working days to respond.<br />

Lindsay Morton has had<br />

a long recovery from the<br />

injuries he suffered when his<br />

vehicle collided with another<br />

at the intersection of <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

and Springston Rolleston<br />

Rds.<br />

The driver of the other<br />

vehicle, who tragically died,<br />

may have been affected by<br />

sunstrike, police believe. It<br />

happened at 8am when the<br />

sun would have been an<br />

issue.<br />

The crash is a good<br />

example of needing to have<br />

full attention on the road,<br />

and noting what other<br />

drivers are and aren’t doing.<br />

The district’s intersections<br />

have long been proven to<br />

be death traps – but it is the<br />

driver who is the problem.<br />

DESIGN ENGINEERS are<br />

investigating numerous roading<br />

configurations for Rolleston as<br />

they grapple with the perfect<br />

flyover design, which may even<br />

include an underpass.<br />

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport<br />

Agency released a controversial<br />

flyover plan in July last year,<br />

but it was opposed by many<br />

businesses in the industrial<br />

zone.<br />

A Waka Kotahi spokesperson<br />

said its design engineers were<br />

now refining the options down<br />

to “around three” and would<br />

have a revised draft plan with<br />

a preferred option ready for<br />

community feedback in about<br />

two months.<br />

“A solution that we think<br />

fits community needs better<br />

is starting to emerge,” the<br />

spokesperson said.<br />

The main aim was to prevent<br />

people from being killed and<br />

seriously injured on State<br />

Highway 1 and at rail crossings<br />

in Rolleston.<br />

“This is a high-risk section<br />

of a major South Island freight<br />

corridor, intersecting with rail.<br />

There have been around 40 near<br />

misses at Hoskyns level crossing<br />

in the past 10 years.”<br />

The project team has<br />

investigated numerous<br />

configurations, including “atgrade”,<br />

which was pedestrians,<br />

cyclists and motorists crossing<br />

or using the intersection at the<br />

same level, as well as “alternative<br />

flyover/underpass options at<br />

different locations”.<br />

However, Waka Kotahi could<br />

not provide any further details,<br />

saying it was “too soon” to state<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

Flyover options may include underpass<br />

whether any of the options<br />

would include an underpass in<br />

addition to a flyover.<br />

wider plan involving safety<br />

improvements along SH1 from<br />

considering reducing the<br />

speed limit on this stretch of<br />

WOMAN ALLEGED TO<br />

A potentially Covid-positive<br />

patron at The Famous Grouse,<br />

Lincoln, is to appear in<br />

Christchurch District Court after<br />

an incident involving her spitting<br />

at a police officer. About 11.15pm<br />

on Saturday, hotel security staff<br />

waved down a police officer and<br />

told them they had been assaulted<br />

by the young woman. As an arrest<br />

was made, she allegedly kicked<br />

and bit the officer. Security staff<br />

and other officers came to assist,<br />

when one of the officers was<br />

allegedly spat at. Senior Sergeant<br />

Anna Lloyd said the officers were<br />

later informed by the woman’s<br />

friends she had tested positive for<br />

Covid earlier that day.<br />

‘Dazzling sun’ cited as a factor in<br />

LAID UP: Lindsay Morton suffered a badly dislocated<br />

ankle and compound fracture in the crash.<br />

• From page 1<br />

Douglas Benecke, a 57-yearold<br />

computer engineer from<br />

Rolleston, died at the scene<br />

of the crash after he drove<br />

his Volkswagen Cross Polo<br />

through the stop sign-controlled<br />

intersection into the path of a<br />

silver Audi driven by Morton.<br />

The sun was rising directly along<br />

the line of <strong>Selwyn</strong> Rd at the time<br />

of the crash.<br />

Morton, who was confined to<br />

crutches for 15 months, is still living<br />

with the consequences.<br />

Sunstrike is a concerning road<br />

safety issue in the region. Between<br />

2017 and 2021, there were 149<br />

crashes in Canterbury where<br />

“dazzling sun” was cited as a factor<br />

by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport<br />

Agency – the fourth highest rate<br />

in the country behind Auckland,<br />

Waikato and Wellington.<br />

That figure included three fatal<br />

crashes and 22 involving serious<br />

injuries.<br />

The majority of ‘dazzling sun’<br />

crashes (131) between 2017-2021<br />

occurred from 8am to noon in<br />

June; followed by the same time<br />

slot in July (86) and August (60).<br />

It took 11 months for Morton,<br />

who travelled the same route from<br />

Lincoln to work at a transport<br />

logistics company in Rolleston<br />

for three-and-a-half years, to get<br />

back behind the wheel after the<br />

collision.<br />

“I had a wee try in our drive<br />

because of the swelling and nerves<br />

in my foot. I wasn’t sure if I could<br />

drive with the numbness under<br />

the base of my foot,” he explained.<br />

“I had some practice in the<br />

driveway and then I’d go round<br />

the outskirts of Lincoln until I<br />

was confident enough to drive on<br />

a main road.”<br />

He is still wary at intersections,<br />

regardless of the time of day.<br />

“I go through some of them<br />

very gingerly now, especially<br />

where visibility is poor and you’re<br />

totally reliant on the other guy<br />

to stop. I’ll always have a raised<br />

awareness now,” he said.<br />

Morton still has memories of<br />

the crash, though in sepia tones<br />

the sun is not prominent.<br />

“I saw some blank road and<br />

there was a vehicle right in front<br />

of me. These are still shots. They<br />

were so vivid. I can still clearly see<br />

them, they were all in brown, like<br />

the old photos you have,” he said.<br />

“My doctor was saying: ‘That’ll<br />

be your brain doing some funny<br />

thing to protect itself’.”<br />

Physically, the badly dislocated<br />

ankle and compound fracture<br />

were Morton’s most severe injuries<br />

but the discomfort lingers on.<br />

“I’ll have limited mobility, I’ll<br />

never run again. At the moment<br />

you consciously have to take<br />

every step,” he said, adding it was<br />

difficult for his ankle to adjust<br />

to uneven surfaces like sand or<br />

gravel.<br />

“Now I’ve got to think about<br />

every step I take, 250m would be a<br />

long walk.”<br />

A second ankle operation was<br />

scheduled this week, which will<br />

consign Morton to crutches for<br />

another two months.<br />

Morton suffered another<br />

setback soon after his graduated<br />

return to work programme,<br />

devised by the Accident<br />

Compensation Corporation, was<br />

completed last year.<br />

“They had someone in<br />

Auckland doing the job, and they<br />

decided to keep the job there. The<br />

redundancy blew me away when I<br />

was still dealing with everything<br />

else,” said Morton, who reaches<br />

retirement age in January.<br />

“I was 63 when the accident<br />

happened. I thought this last<br />

two to half-year run into my<br />

retirement, things were looking<br />

okay. It’s turned into a bit of a<br />

struggle now.<br />

“There’s a lot of ongoing<br />

consequences for a moment of<br />

indecision, or maybe not driving<br />

to the conditions.”<br />

The crash prompted coroner<br />

Mary-Anne Borrowdale to issue a<br />

warning about sunstrike because<br />

the sun rises directly along the<br />

line of <strong>Selwyn</strong> Rd at that time of<br />

year.<br />

“The resulting glare could<br />

adversely affect a driver’s vision<br />

when heading east on that road,”<br />

she said.<br />

Thefts from fuel storage tanks<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

THIEVES HAVE been accessing<br />

storage tanks at service stations<br />

in the district to steal petrol.<br />

Police have apprehended one<br />

suspect, 52-year-old Stephen<br />

James Reid, of Christchurch,<br />

who was remanded on bail when<br />

he appeared in Christchurch<br />

District Court on Monday, on a<br />

charge of theft of $4386.25 fuel,<br />

from Mobil, Rolleston.<br />

Senior Sergeant Anna Lloyd<br />

said there had been a number<br />

of such thefts reported, most<br />

occurring overnight at unstaffed<br />

stations such as NPD and Allied.<br />

Reid’s arrest had been made<br />

possible by CCTV providing<br />

real-time footage to the business<br />

owner.<br />

“We had anticipated that<br />

this may occur with the rise<br />

in fuel prices, and we strongly<br />

encourage anyone who sees<br />

any suspicious activity around<br />

these fuel stations, particularly<br />

vehicles towing high-sided<br />

trailers; to call 111,” Lloyd<br />

said.<br />

The site owner did not want<br />

to be named but said there had<br />

been two incidents of the alleged<br />

offender stealing petrol from an<br />

above-ground tank in the past<br />

week. It was the first time such<br />

thefts had ever occurred there.<br />

“There are extra measures in<br />

place now to stop it happening,”<br />

he said.<br />

Allied Prebbleton’s manager<br />

said a thief with an electric<br />

pump had accessed the<br />

underground tank late last year.<br />

The manager had watched the<br />

CCTV footage of the theft after<br />

noticing the plate covering the<br />

hole, where staff accessed the<br />

tanks with a dipstick to measure<br />

fuel quantity, was missing.<br />

“Sunstrike can occur at any<br />

time of day, but is most common<br />

during sunrise or sunset when<br />

the sun’s rays hit the driver’s<br />

windscreen at a low angle,”<br />

Borrowdale said.<br />

“This can make it difficult, or<br />

even impossible, to see. This is<br />

a very dangerous condition in<br />

which to drive.”<br />

Constable Denise van Asch<br />

told the coronial inquest she<br />

had to adjust her mirror as she<br />

drove to the scene, as the sun<br />

behind her vehicle was causing<br />

glare in her eyes. Other witnesses<br />

that morning also said the glare<br />

affected their vision.<br />

Benecke had the sun visor in<br />

the down position, but he was not<br />

wearing sunglasses.<br />

AA road safety spokesman<br />

Dylan Thomsen urged motorists<br />

to take precautions, given<br />

crashes involving sunstrike<br />

at intersections are the most<br />

common location.<br />

“Good vision is absolutely<br />

essential to safe driving, as<br />

are simple things like keeping<br />

your windscreen clean, using<br />

your headlights during the day<br />

and keeping good following<br />

distances,” he said.<br />

“Even if you’re not behind<br />

the wheel of a car, you need to<br />

be aware that someone driving<br />

toward you might not be able to<br />

see you.<br />

“A large number of crashes<br />

involve a driver not seeing<br />

someone or something else on<br />

the road but you can do things to<br />

help you see and be seen.”<br />

Welfare team helping Covid cases<br />

But if the information is<br />

readily available – as the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

<strong>Times</strong> understood Lincoln<br />

University’s Covid numbers were<br />

– then within the spirit of the<br />

act that should have been done<br />

immediately.<br />

The university continued to<br />

say the <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong>’ request for<br />

numbers would be treated as an<br />

OIA.<br />

The university released the<br />

numbers for the period of February<br />

24 to <strong>March</strong> 17 late last week.<br />

It said breaking down the 361<br />

cases into staff and students<br />

would breach its own policy on<br />

personal information.<br />

“We consider disclosing this<br />

medical information would be<br />

in contradiction of this policy.<br />

Lincoln University is a small<br />

community and numbers of<br />

cases broken down into staff and<br />

student cohorts may lead to the<br />

identification of individuals,” a<br />

spokeswoman said.<br />

“And providing the breakdown<br />

of cases may make others refuse<br />

to give the university this health<br />

information in the future.”<br />

The university is following<br />

Ministry of Education guidelines<br />

for Covid-19 protection, the<br />

spokeswoman said.<br />

The university had positive<br />

cases among its staff and student<br />

community on and off campus,<br />

and was committed to supporting<br />

the welfare of its students<br />

and staff who are positive cases<br />

or household close contacts, the<br />

spokeswoman said.<br />

“Following a move to phase<br />

three of the red traffic light<br />

settings, a dedicated university<br />

welfare team is in action to<br />

support both on campus and<br />

off campus staff and student<br />

communities. This is in addition<br />

to the existing safety and<br />

preventative measures already in<br />

place on campus.”<br />

Carl and Debbie Wild, the owneroperators<br />

with experience using<br />

laundromats while travelling and<br />

operating a BnB, realised there was<br />

support and interest for a convenient<br />

laundromat. With several years<br />

“Cleanliness and sanitation are a<br />

high priority.” The machines can take<br />

bulk loads of washing and drying,<br />

including duvets, curtains, and mink<br />

blankets that your home laundry<br />

Broughton uses casting vote to oppose<br />

joining action group over Three Waters<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

HOW TO MOVE ahead with<br />

Three Waters reforms has split<br />

the district council down the<br />

middle, forcing Mayor Sam<br />

Broughton to deliver a casting<br />

vote.<br />

Councillors<br />

strongly<br />

debated at their<br />

meeting last<br />

week, whether<br />

to join the local<br />

body action<br />

group opposing<br />

Sam<br />

Broughton<br />

the reforms.<br />

Communities<br />

4 Local Democracy<br />

was launched on the steps<br />

of Parliament by 23 councils in<br />

December, and now 32 councils<br />

belong to it, representing almost<br />

half of New Zealand’s 67 territorial<br />

authorities.<br />

Councillor Grant Miller led<br />

the charge to join the group, by<br />

moving an amendment to a motion<br />

which was before the meeting<br />

in a Three Waters update<br />

report.<br />

He was one of six councillors<br />

who then voted for the amendment,<br />

the others being Shane<br />

Epiha, Murray Lemon, Jenny<br />

Gallagher, Bob Mugford, and<br />

Debra Hasson.<br />

Voting against the amendment<br />

was Broughton and five<br />

councillors – Malcolm Lyall,<br />

Mark Alexander, Nicole Reid,<br />

Jeff Bland and Sophie McInnes.<br />

“So that’s a dead heat, and<br />

I will use my casting vote to<br />

not join Communities 4 Local<br />

Democracy and declare it lost,”<br />

Broughton said.<br />

Chief executive David<br />

Ward and group manager<br />

infrastructure Murray<br />

Washington had put the<br />

update report before councillors,<br />

which outlined reasons staff<br />

did not support joining. These<br />

included that Government was<br />

pursuing the reforms anyway,<br />

local government should work<br />

within the law, and that local<br />

runanga did not support<br />

joining.<br />

In opening discussion,<br />

Broughton agreed with staff. He<br />

said the district council had to<br />

susan.sandys@starmedia.<br />

kiwi<br />

continue to engage with the<br />

Department of Internal Affairs<br />

and consider constructively what<br />

change could look like.<br />

Miller said<br />

while it was not<br />

the role of local<br />

bodies to oppose<br />

Government, the<br />

district council<br />

did not have a<br />

choice.<br />

“It’s either a<br />

situation we box<br />

Grant Miller<br />

on on our own, which has so<br />

far proven to be fruitless, or we<br />

join a bigger organisation which<br />

has the horsepower and size to<br />

advocate to the government,” he<br />

said.<br />

Hasson said the district<br />

council was getting nowhere by<br />

taking a “nice approach.”<br />

“I just can not sit there and<br />

play nice in the sandpit, knowing<br />

that everyone around us is<br />

throwing sand up into our eyes,”<br />

she said.<br />

Lemon, who seconded Miller’s<br />

amendment, said it was important<br />

to have iwi support going<br />

forward.<br />

Epiha said the district<br />

council had still not consulted<br />

|its ratepayers on Three Waters.<br />

“The rangatira is not above<br />

the hapu, or the district, the<br />

rangatira must listen to the hapu,<br />

the district.”<br />

Lyall said Communities<br />

4 Local Democracy did not<br />

necessarily have the sway<br />

with Government to solve the<br />

issue.<br />

The district council was “not<br />

sitting in the sunshine” with its<br />

community-owned water supplies.<br />

For example, dozens of boil<br />

water notices had been issued<br />

for Malvern Hills water supplies<br />

over the last year.<br />

Alexander said the district<br />

council would be “gagged”<br />

by becoming a member<br />

of Communities 4 Local<br />

Democracy, while McInnes said<br />

joining would lock the district<br />

council out of working groups<br />

which were refining the Three<br />

Waters proposal.<br />

NEWS<br />

MEASURES will be taken to<br />

address mixed messages for<br />

motorists using State Highway<br />

1 towards Picton after two signs<br />

in quick succession display<br />

the wrong distance to the<br />

destination.<br />

Weedons resident Noel<br />

Kennard alerted <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

to a situation where three Waka<br />

Kotahi NZ Transport Agency<br />

road signs in close proximity<br />

indicate drivers have gone<br />

back in distance and then<br />

literally nowhere, in spite of the<br />

odometer recording 6.7km.<br />

The first sign near Dawsons<br />

Rd indicates Picton 347km and<br />

can be taken as read, but 4km<br />

along the road towards Hornby<br />

(and Picton) the distance is now<br />

398km.<br />

Then 1.4km further down<br />

SH1, near Halswell Junction<br />

Rd, the journey length to Picton<br />

reverts to 347km, another<br />

miscalculation.<br />

“It finally got the better of me.<br />

How can people get it so wrong?”<br />

said Kennard, who takes the<br />

route regularly to the city.<br />

No specific individual was<br />

thrown under the bus, but<br />

Waka Kotahi network manager<br />

Canterbury Jessica McFarlane<br />

said the sign near Barters Rd,<br />

which states 398km to Picton,<br />

will be corrected.<br />

The sign closest to Hornby that<br />

incorrectly displays 347km also<br />

needed to be amended.<br />

“It was in place before the<br />

Roads of National Significance<br />

were in place so it needs to be<br />

reviewed since adjustments due<br />

to the Western Belfast Bypass<br />

reduced the journey distance,”<br />

McFarlane said.<br />

Broughton – Outcome<br />

could have been better<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

DISTRICT councillors accepted the<br />

recommendation of an independent<br />

commissioner to turn down<br />

a 2100-home rezoning<br />

application at Rolleston at<br />

their meeting last week.<br />

However, Mayor Sam<br />

Broughton threw doubt on the<br />

logic behind Commissioner<br />

David Caldwell’s<br />

recommendation,<br />

saying the rezoning could<br />

potentially have opened up a<br />

“better land use outcome.”<br />

The Carter Group application, Plan<br />

Change 73, would have pushed the<br />

boundary of Rolleston west of Dunns<br />

Crossing Rd, had it been successful. It was<br />

for two parcels of land, the Holmes and<br />

Skellerup blocks.<br />

Broughton said the land was nearby the<br />

town and existing infrastructure, a school<br />

and State Highway 1.<br />

In this respect it was better<br />

connected to the town than that<br />

in another rezoning application<br />

at West Melton, which had been<br />

recommended for acceptance by the<br />

Commissioner.<br />

While Broughton understood<br />

the need for caution around reverse<br />

David Caldwell sensitivity effects from the nearby<br />

Pines Wastewater Treatment Plant, he<br />

believed protections could be put in<br />

place.<br />

“In the same way that I don’t want to see<br />

the airport contours restrict development<br />

under those contours.”<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

BUYERS OF sections in a planned<br />

subdivision at Rolleston have been caught<br />

out by the new housing intensification<br />

rules, which may delay construction of<br />

their homes.<br />

The district council is seeking a solution<br />

for the developer, Dunweavin 2020 Ltd, as<br />

it finds building may be put on hold for up<br />

to two years.<br />

Sections at the 150-home subdivision on<br />

13ha on East Maddisons Rd mostly all sold<br />

by October last year, prior to introduction<br />

of the Resource Management (Enabling<br />

Housing Supply and Other Matters)<br />

Amendment Act 2021 being passed into<br />

law in December.<br />

In the public forum before last week’s<br />

district council meeting, Dunweavin director<br />

Martin Weaver said the unintended<br />

consequences of the new legislation was<br />

troubling.<br />

Construction was to begin late this year,<br />

but could now be delayed until mid-2024<br />

at the earliest.<br />

This was due to there being a longer<br />

pause between the district council approving<br />

the plan change and it then becoming<br />

part of the district plan, as it now had to be<br />

included in a variation to the plan instead.<br />

“Now we find the goalposts have been<br />

shifted and they have been moved dramatically,<br />

more than two years further<br />

away,” Weaver said.<br />

The real estate agent who sold the sections,<br />

Ross Mitchell of Harcourts Lincoln,<br />

said the expected delay was having a<br />

“catastrophic” effect for buyers. They were<br />

not sure if they could still afford to build<br />

as prices rose, and others had already sold<br />

their previous homes.<br />

In later discussion as district councillors<br />

prepared to approve the rezoning application,<br />

group manager environmental and<br />

regulatory services Tim Harris said there<br />

was “about seven or eight” other plan<br />

changes similarly caught out by the legislation.<br />

Staff would be in touch with the PC76<br />

developers.<br />

“We are exploring options in terms<br />

of allowing particular land owners<br />

potentially to apply for subdivisions ahead<br />

of their plan change becoming operative<br />

if it is not subject to appeal. We are<br />

reasonably optimistic we will be able to<br />

come up with a pathway forward,”<br />

Harris said.

Bayleys<br />

CONTENT MARKETING<br />

Bring what you can<br />

With Covid in the community, supplies in<br />

Canterbury’s food banks are at an all-time low.<br />

When you walk into reception at Bayleys Canterbury your<br />

eyes are drawn to the whakatauki on the wall. “He tāngata,<br />

he tāngata, he tāngata.” It is the people. People are at the<br />

heart of everything Bayleys do, from finding families a<br />

home, to giving back to the communities in which we<br />

operate. Our community commitment is about long-term<br />

social change and wide-ranging support – contributing<br />

time, resources and funds across Canterbury.<br />

“The motivation is caring about the community, equality<br />

and wellbeing for all. We don’t have all the answers, but we<br />

are passionate that our community partners survive and<br />

thrive,” says Pete Whalan, CEO Bayleys Canterbury.<br />

One of Bayleys’ major partnerships is with the<br />

Christchurch City Mission, an organisation that provides<br />

an emergency food bank, accommodation, addiction<br />

counselling and a Back to School programme, they could<br />

not be more proud to be a Major Business Partner and<br />

champion the brand whenever the opportunity arises.<br />

“We help people who have a need,” says Matthew Mark,<br />

CEO, Christchurch City Mission. “Our work each year<br />

sees us positively impacting the lives of more than 70,000<br />

people across Canterbury when they are facing challenging<br />

times. We have a wide variety of services that combine<br />

compassion and care with expert knowledge.”<br />

The collaboration between Bayleys and the Christchurch<br />

City Mission started three years ago when Bayleys<br />

proactively approached Christchurch City Mission with an<br />

idea around collecting cans of food for their food bank.<br />

In support of the City Mission’s food bank can collection<br />

and in association with the Canterbury Crusaders, Bayleys<br />

Bring What You Can encourages people from around<br />

Christchurch to rally around to collect and contribute as<br />

many cans and non-perishable foods to donate to the City<br />

Mission’s food bank as possible.<br />

With Covid in the community, supplies in the<br />

Christchurch City Mission’s food bank are at an all-time<br />

low and the need has never been greater. Too many<br />

kids and families across Canterbury are going hungry.<br />

Canterbury food banks are under strain as more whanau<br />

struggle to make ends meet. That’s why for the third year<br />

in a row Bayleys Canterbury are asking everyone around<br />

Canterbury to bring what they can to help stock up the<br />

Christchurch City Mission’s food bank.<br />

People need access to food parcels for all sorts of reasons<br />

– and each time the Christchurch City Mission responds,<br />

not just for the people in Christchurch, they supply food to<br />

families all over Canterbury.<br />

Bring Non-perishables like canned vegetables,<br />

spaghetti, soup and beans — to any Bayleys<br />

office during the months of April and May and<br />

The team at Bayleys will make sure it is<br />

delivered to the food banks across Canterbury<br />

that need it most.<br />

No legs? No sweat: Amputation<br />

Fourteen years ago,<br />

Ross Millichamp had<br />

both legs amputated<br />

after catching a<br />

flesh-eating bug on a<br />

hunting trip. But the<br />

life-altering event hasn’t<br />

kept the Greendale<br />

resident from exploring<br />

the back country,<br />

fishing, hunting,<br />

flying and jet-boating.<br />

Kurt Bayer meets one<br />

of New Zealand’s great<br />

outdoorsmen<br />

NEW OUTLOOK:<br />

Ross Millichamp,<br />

who wrote the<br />

classic New<br />

Zealand angling<br />

book Salmon<br />

Fever, lost both<br />

legs after he<br />

contracted a<br />

flesh-eating<br />

disease during a<br />

hunting trip on<br />

Stewart Island in<br />

2008.<br />

PHOTOS:<br />

GEORGE HEARD/<br />

NZ HERALD<br />

LYING IN hospital week after<br />

week, Ross Millichamp had<br />

never felt so stagnant.<br />

An avid reader, especially tales<br />

of adventure, Battle of Britain<br />

fighter pilots and Antarctic<br />

expeditions, he could barely read<br />

a page before he was too tired to<br />

continue.<br />

Both legs were gone below the<br />

knee. He yearned for the bush or<br />

a shingly riverbank.<br />

He cast his mind back to his<br />

last trip – hunting and fishing<br />

with some mates on Stewart<br />

Island.<br />

It was there that his life<br />

changed forever.<br />

After fishing, a small cut or<br />

insect bite became infected. He<br />

went downhill over a few days,<br />

and 24 hours before he was due<br />

to leave by boat, he knew he<br />

was in trouble. The pain in his<br />

shoulder was intense.<br />

Through a mountain radio, he<br />

called for medical help and was<br />

flown to Invercargill Hospital by<br />

rescue helicopter.<br />

Extensive tests showed a rare<br />

bacterial condition, necrotising<br />

fasciitis, or flesh-eating disease.<br />

His body went into septic<br />

shock. His organs started<br />

shutting down.<br />

The next thing he knew he<br />

was in Christchurch Hospital’s<br />

intensive care unit. He had<br />

woken to find both legs<br />

amputated at the knees, the only<br />

way to remove the diseased flesh<br />

and stop it from ravaging his<br />

body any further and taking his<br />

life. It wasn’t clear just how he<br />

got infected.<br />

But what was apparent was<br />

that life would never be the<br />

same.<br />

Because Millichamp, author of<br />

the classic New Zealand angling<br />

book Salmon Fever, grew up in<br />

the outdoors. It has always, in<br />

many ways, defined his life.<br />

He had been a Fish & Game<br />

field officer for many years before<br />

becoming manager of Fish &<br />

Game North Canterbury.<br />

And when he wasn’t working,<br />

he’d be out doing what he loved<br />

anyway.<br />

So when the disease struck<br />

him, he was adamant he was<br />

going to continue.<br />

Many amputees, he learned,<br />

lose limbs through diabetes or<br />

circulation issues. Not many<br />

suffer the misfortune early in<br />

active lives.<br />

“There’s not a lot of people to<br />

go to for advice, you just have to<br />

figure out a lot of it yourself,” he<br />

says.<br />

While he was still in hospital,<br />

a psychiatrist visited. He asked<br />

Millichamp what he wanted to<br />

do once he returned home.<br />

Millichamp said: “Everything I<br />

used to do.’’<br />

But the psychiatrist gently<br />

Below – Ross<br />

Millichamp<br />

inside his hangar<br />

at his home in<br />

Greendale.<br />

hinted that he might want to try<br />

something new.<br />

“I saw that as a bit of an<br />

admission that I would never<br />

recover but it was quite wise<br />

advice,” Millichamp said.<br />

“If you want to return to your<br />

life exactly as it was, you’re going<br />

to be constantly comparing life<br />

today as it used to be. When you<br />

go salmon fishing, deer hunting,<br />

or whatever, even if you have<br />

success, you’re always confronted<br />

by how more difficult it is now<br />

than what it used to be.<br />

“So the advice was quite<br />

sound and by picking something<br />

new meant I wasn’t constantly<br />

comparing it to what I had<br />

before.”<br />

Millichamp, who lives on a<br />

rural property at Greendale<br />

had always fancied learning to<br />

fly. He’d once met two World<br />

War 2 Spitfire pilots and was<br />

spellbound by their stories.<br />

But, like many people, he<br />

found he never had the time to<br />

pursue lessons.<br />

Now, he suddenly had the<br />

time. About six months out of<br />

hospital, where he spent more<br />

than five months, he started<br />

lessons at the Canterbury Aero<br />

Club in Christchurch.<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

NEWS 15<br />

not a setback for outdoorsman<br />

It was a new group of people<br />

and a whole new challenge.<br />

He was already getting sick<br />

of meeting people who were<br />

stunned to see his condition and<br />

asking what happened to him.<br />

“People were genuinely<br />

interested but it does become<br />

repetitive and did keep taking<br />

me back to that situation – and at<br />

some point you have got to put it<br />

past you.”<br />

By taking to the skies, he was<br />

enjoying the freedom, but also<br />

the structure and challenge of<br />

ticking off the next steps of the<br />

process.<br />

The tricky part was passing the<br />

medical tests required to get his<br />

pilot’s license.<br />

“The medical people weren’t<br />

very helpful,” he smiles ruefully.<br />

It also took time before he was<br />

allowed to carry passengers.<br />

Eventually, the Civil Aviation<br />

Authority relented and he<br />

decided he needed his own<br />

aircraft to give him the freedom<br />

to fly wherever he wanted,<br />

whenever he wanted.<br />

In 2011, he bought a Cessna<br />

172 – a four-seater plane which<br />

has become the most popular<br />

single-engine aircraft ever built<br />

– and took off around the South<br />

Island.<br />

He hasn’t made any<br />

modifications to the cockpit<br />

or controls, and manages to<br />

manipulate the pedals with his<br />

prosthetic feet.<br />

As his love for tripping into the<br />

back country grew, he decided<br />

he needed “something a bit<br />

gruntier” and upgraded to a<br />

Cessna 182 – which has a larger<br />

engine and prop while carrying<br />

more fuel.<br />

It’s kept in a hangar on his<br />

Greendale property, pointing<br />

towards his narrow grass airstrip,<br />

kept short by a flock of sheep.<br />

His wife Jinny, while “not<br />

particularly adventurous”, has<br />

been all over the country with<br />

him and “landed in all sorts of<br />

weird places”.<br />

“It’s something that we’ve<br />

ended up doing quite a bit<br />

together, which I wasn’t<br />

expecting to be honest. But we’ve<br />

had a lot of fun.”<br />

TAKE OFF: Ross Millichamp loves the freedom that comes<br />

with owning his Cessna 182.<br />

His other great passion is, of<br />

course, angling.<br />

But Millichamp, now 57,<br />

doesn’t much go for salmon<br />

these days. He’s been saddened at<br />

witnessing the salmon fisheries<br />

decline over the years, and it’s got<br />

to the stage that “killing a fish<br />

feels a bit wrong really because<br />

they are struggling”.<br />

He still spends plenty of time<br />

on the ocean, though.<br />

Once or twice a year, he still<br />

heads south to the wilds of<br />

Stewart Island, in spite of it being<br />

the scene of his infection.<br />

It took him a few years before<br />

he was game enough to return –<br />

but he’s fallen back in love with<br />

the place.<br />

“Stewart Island is quite remote.<br />

Even in Fiordland you can go on<br />

a boat and be parked up in a little<br />

bay and there are cruise ships,<br />

helicopters and planes going<br />

past all the time. But in Stewart<br />

Island, you see the odd yachtie on<br />

a big adventure or a commercial<br />

fisherman, but it feels a long way<br />

from society. It’s just grown on<br />

me really.”<br />

He loves walking in thick bush<br />

even if he can’t sneak up on his<br />

quarry like he used to.<br />

CATCH: Fishing remains one<br />

of his Ross Millichamp’s<br />

greatest passions.<br />

“I’m as noisy as all hell now,<br />

but I’ve still shot the odd deer,<br />

and you come to accept that just<br />

being there is a great thing,” he<br />

says.<br />

Earlier this month Millichamp<br />

flew to the North Island and<br />

went marlin fishing with a mate<br />

off Waihau Bay, 42km north of<br />

Gisborne.<br />

He’d caught a few marlin<br />

before his injuries, but always<br />

from big charter boats with a<br />

professional crew.<br />

This time, he was fishing out of<br />

a trailer boat – just him and his<br />

friend. All of the gear is designed<br />

for able-bodied people, with<br />

harnesses that utilise leg power<br />

and take the weight off arms.<br />

Happy to just be on the water,<br />

Millichamp never imagined that<br />

within a few hours he would land<br />

a giant.<br />

The marlin fought for about<br />

90min before he finally reeled<br />

it in – a beauty weighing<br />

approximately 110kg. They<br />

tagged it and released it back into<br />

the deep blue sea.<br />

Wading in rivers while fishing<br />

can be challenging, with the<br />

stones constantly shifting<br />

beneath him.<br />

“There are lots of things that<br />

are more difficult, it’s just a<br />

matter of working through it and<br />

accepting it won’t be as easy as<br />

it used to be,” says Millichamp,<br />

who now works part-time on<br />

working groups for Environment<br />

Canterbury.<br />

Some of the things he does are<br />

not without risk. Sometimes he<br />

thinks if the jetboat broke down<br />

here and he had to get out and<br />

swim he might, he pauses, “. . .<br />

struggle”.<br />

But a bigger risk for him would<br />

be sitting at home and becoming<br />

idle.<br />

“For a lot of people with<br />

disabilities, the difficulty is that if<br />

they’re less active, there are other<br />

risks you face in terms of health<br />

and well-being,” says Millichamp<br />

– who pranged his jetboat in<br />

Fiordland just before Christmas,<br />

hitting a rock he knew was there<br />

in low water. There are some<br />

things I do where there’s a bit of<br />

risk, but you have to live with<br />

that. I’m quite good at figuring<br />

out solutions to things. I can<br />

usually figure out a way.”<br />

Te Ara Ātea – last<br />

few weeks to view<br />

Ted’s collection<br />

Te Ara Ātea is a place of storytelling – from books, art, and<br />

heritage displays, there’s always something to discover.<br />

Nestled away in the Wāhi Tamariki is a museum-style<br />

display case dedicated to celebrating our community’s<br />

tamariki – a place where they can share things that matter to<br />

them. These collections are displayed with the same careful<br />

curation and care as our museum objects throughout the<br />

building.<br />

Since opening on December 2, we have been displaying six<br />

year old Ted Sole’s collection of archaeological and geological<br />

finds discovered at the river bed and Kaitorete spit. Ted’s<br />

collection includes objects like agates, rocks, an old tobacco<br />

tin and bullet case. His favourite object is a big creamy white<br />

agate that has been polished by the ocean. If you’re interested<br />

in archaeology and geology we encourage you to come on in<br />

and have a look. Ted would love your help in identifying the<br />

mystery object that he discovered!<br />

Next month, this special collection will be returned to<br />

Ted and his family and another child will have a chance to<br />

display their precious objects. This case will be changed out<br />

regularly so be sure to have a look next time you visit us.<br />

Do the tamariki in your life have something they’d love to<br />

share? Talk to our team or send us an email if they’re keen to<br />

get involved.<br />

Secure charging for e-bikes<br />

popular at university<br />

New secure charging<br />

stations for e-bikes<br />

and scooters at Lincoln<br />

University are being<br />

well used since their<br />

installation this month.<br />

Of the nine new Locky<br />

Dock stations, outside<br />

the George Forbes<br />

building, three to five a<br />

day are occupied. Made<br />

of reinforced steel with<br />

cameras, the stations<br />

are accessed via a free<br />

app or Metrocard. They<br />

enable free charging,<br />

but people must take<br />

their own chargers. The<br />

installation is in line<br />

with the university’s<br />

sustainability plan,<br />

to increase car-free<br />

commuting to and from<br />

campus. Another set of<br />

Locky Docks is planned<br />

for outside Whare<br />

Hākinakina LU Gym later<br />

in the year. The university<br />

is aiming to be carbon<br />

neutral by 20<strong>30</strong>, and<br />

achieve carbon zero<br />

by 2050, which also<br />

includes measures such<br />

as extensive installation<br />

of solar panels on<br />

campus.<br />

RECENTLY I found<br />

my once healthy, prized<br />

specimen of native<br />

mistletoe close to death.<br />

Plucking a few leaves from<br />

the sick-looking plant, it<br />

became obvious it was<br />

infested with thrips.<br />

Plant and Food Research<br />

entomologists helped to<br />

confirm the pest to be the<br />

glasshouse thrips (Heliothrips<br />

haemorrhoidalis)<br />

from more than 127 species<br />

of thrips found in New<br />

Zealand.<br />

This species is thought<br />

to have originated in<br />

Brazil but is now found<br />

worldwide and is known<br />

from 165 host plants in<br />

New Zealand.<br />

Adult males and females<br />

are 1.2mm and 1.5mm<br />

long respectively and have<br />

two pairs of narrow wings<br />

with hairs along the edges<br />

resembling feathers.<br />

When not in use, wings<br />

are folded away on the<br />

abdomen. Two diagnostic<br />

characteristics of this<br />

species are that adults<br />

are comparatively slow<br />

Thrips infest mistletoe<br />

moving and leaves that<br />

they have infested often<br />

exhibit numerous small,<br />

brown spots of dried faecal<br />

exudate.<br />

The bodies of adults are<br />

black in colour, while the<br />

legs are yellow white.<br />

The dorsal surface of<br />

the head and thorax is<br />

strongly sculptured and<br />

reticulate (net-like).<br />

Females can lay 47<br />

eggs on average during<br />

lifetime of about one<br />

month. The species may<br />

produce about seven generations<br />

per year. Glasshouse<br />

thrips have four<br />

tiny wasp natural enemies<br />

– two are parasitic and two<br />

are predators.<br />

One of the parasitic<br />

wasps lay eggs in the thrips<br />

eggs while the second<br />

species oviposits eggs in<br />

larvae.<br />

Two species of Spilomena<br />

wasps capture and<br />

paralyse thrips and then<br />

store them in a hole with<br />

one of their eggs. Where<br />

were these natural enemies<br />

when I needed them?<br />

Reluctantly I had to<br />

treat the thrips infestation<br />

with insecticide to save the<br />

mistletoe.<br />

Work begins on<br />

new youth zone<br />

Another exciting new hub for youth in the district is being built in the next stage of the Rolleston Town<br />

Centre.<br />

Work on the youth zone, which is being built by Isaac Construction, began in mid <strong>March</strong>, and aims<br />

to be completed by the end of the year. The area will feature a skate park, half basketball court and<br />

netball zone. There will also be a gaga ball pit – a game similar to dodge ball and played in a pit area,<br />

where players throw the ball with the aim to touch other players’ legs.<br />

There will also be an eagle claw basket swing, and outdoor furniture along with hangout zones.<br />

The skate park will include a pool bowl, flow bowl and snake run and will be built by skate park<br />

design and build specialist Nelson Creek Skateboards, led by experienced skateboarder David North.<br />

The company most recently built the West Melton skate area.<br />

The youth zone was designed with input from students at <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s four high schools.<br />

It will add another vibrant and different space to the town centre, Council Acting Major Projects<br />

Manager Phil Millar says.<br />

“Our aim with the town centre area is to make this a space for all <strong>Selwyn</strong> residents, with something<br />

for everyone. The youth zone will be a fun space designed with the help of <strong>Selwyn</strong> youth to be<br />

somewhere that is theirs to enjoy alongside all the other areas the town centre has to offer.”<br />

Due to this construction, access to the tennis and netball courts on Rolleston Reserve will only be via<br />

the main reserve car park north of Te Ara Ātea for the next six weeks. Access from the Wordsworth<br />

Street extension should be restored after this. Signage will be in place to direct people on how to<br />

safely access the courts.<br />

Support for starting<br />

new businesses in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

A first of its kind business series will be<br />

running in <strong>Selwyn</strong> to support people looking<br />

to start new businesses.<br />

Applications are now open for the ‘Starting<br />

a business later in life course’ which will<br />

be running over four sessions throughout<br />

May, supporting people over 50 who are<br />

considering starting a new business.<br />

The course has been designed by business<br />

mentor Dr Chris Kirk, a former deputy vicechancellor<br />

of Lincoln University and founder of the 'Later-in-Life Innovators' Group in Christchurch,<br />

which also supports older people starting businesses.<br />

The idea for the series came after the Council organised a mature workers event supported by MSD<br />

and Connected, which included advice and support from agencies and mentors including Dr Kirk.<br />

During those workshops there were repeated questions from attendees who were looking for ways<br />

to keep busy or supplement their income in retirement as well as those looking for new challenges or<br />

with hobbies that with a little support could become businesses, Council Community and Economic<br />

Development Advisor Kirstin Dingwall-Okoye says.<br />

“He said, ‘I’ve never had so many people coming to me asking about this’, and I said, ‘Let’s put on<br />

a seminar’.”<br />

The idea quickly developed into a four-week course, the first of its kind in Aotearoa, which was<br />

successful in receiving funding from the government’s Te Tari Kaumātua, Office for Seniors.<br />

Held each Monday in May the series will cover the process of starting a new business, from the idea<br />

stage through launching a new business, as well as connecting participants with expert coaches,<br />

mentors and potential funding opportunities.<br />

Council advocates for better for<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> in water reforms<br />

The Council will keep advocating for a better outcome for <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

residents than is being offered by the Government’s three waters<br />

reforms.<br />

The Council has confirmed it will advocate as an independent voice<br />

to get the best outcome for <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

It continues to oppose the direction of the proposed reforms and<br />

is concerned about their impact on water services for <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

residents.<br />

“We accept there needs to be change, however we don’t agree the<br />

current three waters proposal is the best or only way forward,” says<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton.<br />

“The government has done a poor job at communicating the need<br />

for change in <strong>Selwyn</strong> and we publicly expressed our disapproval to<br />

them last year.<br />

“We are disappointed at the government’s disregard for councils and<br />

local communities in the way it has run this process so far. We are<br />

also frustrated by the poor response over key questions we have<br />

raised with Government about the reforms.<br />

“We will continue to be a strong, independent voice speaking out to<br />

make sure <strong>Selwyn</strong> people get the best outcome from these reforms.”<br />

Mayor Broughton says the Council’s focus will be on ensuring its<br />

concerns are addressed and shaping theoutcome of the reforms.<br />

It has also committed to working constructively with mana whenua,<br />

to ensure the best possible outcomes for <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

Water is our most important asset and communities need to be able<br />

to have a say in how their services are delivered, he says.<br />

“We have over <strong>30</strong> water supplies each with unique challenges. We<br />

have invested heavily in water infrastructure and overall we have an<br />

excellent service. When we get individual challenges, such as the<br />

complex ones we face at the moment in Springfield, we can work<br />

directly with local residents, using our local knowledge and we are<br />

directly accountable to see through the long-term work required to<br />

address those issues.<br />

“We need to see accountability in the reforms to ensure <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

residents don’t lose that local voice and assurances that our people<br />

will see their needs met. That is what we will be working for – for<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> residents to get a service that continues to deliver for them.”<br />

Three Waters Reform:<br />

Council will maintain independent voice<br />

to advocate for <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

In November 2021 this Council wrote to the Minister<br />

of Local Government, Hon Nanaia Mahuta, to<br />

express our serious concern over the Government’s<br />

Three Waters Reform proposals. We have also<br />

sought answers from Government to questions<br />

on issues that we see as critical to protecting the<br />

interests of <strong>Selwyn</strong> residents and the future of water<br />

services for our community, including:<br />

· Future costs to our communities<br />

· Ensuring continued access to services<br />

· Lack of consultation with communities by<br />

Government<br />

· Safeguarding our communities’ local voice<br />

· How will the partnership with mana whenua<br />

work?<br />

We received the Minister’s response in February,<br />

and a copy is set out here. We are deeply<br />

concerned that the Minister has failed to address<br />

the issues we have raised on our community’s<br />

behalf.<br />

We accept there needs to be change but we don’t<br />

agree that the Government’s current proposal is<br />

the right way forward. It is hard to see any benefits<br />

for <strong>Selwyn</strong>, as many of the changes proposed are<br />

things that <strong>Selwyn</strong> has already implemented over<br />

the past six years.<br />

Despite the concerns raised by communities<br />

across the country, it is now clear the Government<br />

is forging ahead with the reforms regardless. They<br />

have established a transition unit and are looking<br />

to appoint CEOs to the new water entities.<br />

In last week’s Council meeting we confirmed<br />

that we would retain a strong, independent<br />

voice when engaging with the Government, to<br />

advocate on behalf of our communities. This<br />

will ensure we retain the leadership, partnership<br />

and influence we currently hold, and do not fall<br />

behind in the reform process.<br />

Our Council will also continue to work<br />

constructively with mana whenua to ensure the<br />

best possible outcomes for <strong>Selwyn</strong>. Ngai Tahu has<br />

repeatedly affirmed they do not want ownership of<br />

water assets but they do want a voice in how the<br />

water services are run, and we support that view.<br />

We’re also working on a new strategy for water<br />

management in <strong>Selwyn</strong> over the next <strong>30</strong> years.<br />

We’ll work with the community and in partnership<br />

with mana whenua to develop the plan, which will<br />

help us ensure water in <strong>Selwyn</strong> is well positioned<br />

for the future.<br />

On your behalf we will continue to lobby<br />

Government for answers to our questions, for<br />

better communication and consultation and for<br />

changes that meet our own communities’ needs<br />

for better water services.<br />

CONTENT MARKETING<br />

THE HOUSING boom of 2021<br />

has meant many Kiwis have<br />

benefited from huge capital gains,<br />

and now have the opportunity to<br />

capitalise on the equity in their<br />

existing home.<br />

And Covid-19 has certainly<br />

drilled home the need for space.<br />

Upsizing can mean different<br />

things to different people. Some<br />

might want a rumpus room for<br />

a teen who is at uni, while others<br />

might want somewhere with<br />

office space, or perhaps a property<br />

with land where they can add a<br />

self-contained space.<br />

Before you start looking for<br />

a bigger home, ask yourself<br />

how you want to live and what<br />

will make a real difference?<br />

Additionally, consider whether<br />

you want to move or to renovate<br />

your existing home to create<br />

space.<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

Upsizing to your next home: How to be smart about it<br />

What gives the feeling of<br />

a larger home?<br />

Think about how big your<br />

family is, do you have a dog,<br />

children, will you have visitors<br />

coming to stay, and do you know<br />

what you need the extra space<br />

for?<br />

The success of the upsizing<br />

process is often about the extra<br />

living areas.<br />

Good, well-considered<br />

design, and a family room with<br />

a separate lounge, are generally<br />

more sought after than an extra<br />

bedroom.<br />

Choosing to renovate<br />

your home<br />

If for you, upsizing means<br />

renovating your home, make sure<br />

you consider separation of space.<br />

This could mean a living room<br />

in a separate wing, a large sit-in<br />

kitchen, sliding doors to separate<br />

external spaces or a tucked-away<br />

media room.<br />

Your furniture choices can<br />

do a lot to perceived space – for<br />

example, soft furnishings and<br />

heavy drapery help to give it a<br />

homey feel and mirrors can make<br />

a small house feel bigger than it<br />

is by reflecting and, therefore,<br />

replicating the view.<br />

And remember, good light,<br />

double glazing, and insulation all<br />

add to the feeling of space, as do<br />

ceiling heights.<br />

New developments are<br />

maximising space and<br />

comfort<br />

When upsizing to a new<br />

development, you are coming<br />

to homes that are designed in a<br />

way to use every single square<br />

metre.<br />

The attention to detail is second<br />

to none, with quirky nooks and<br />

spaces such as rooftop gardens<br />

and elevated patios.<br />

Developers are trying to give a<br />

sense of space and light, even<br />

when the square meterage is not<br />

excessive.<br />

APPEALING: Darfield wicketkeeper Alister Collins and bowler Tom Innes<br />

combine to dismiss Leeston-Southbridge opener Brayden Hill.<br />

ACROBATIC: Darfield wicketkeeper Alister Collins dives to take a return by<br />

the stumps.<br />

Comprehensive final win for Darfield<br />

DARFIELD HAVE been<br />

crowned country cricket<br />

champions after comprehensively<br />

beating Leeston-Southbridge in<br />

Saturday’s final.<br />

The Darfield XI capped<br />

off a fine 2021/22 CRV Ambreed<br />

Country Premier One<br />

Day competition campaign by<br />

lifting the Fulton/Wright Cup at<br />

Canterbury Country’s showpiece<br />

ground, Mainpower Oval in<br />

Rangiora.<br />

Darfield, beaten finalists last<br />

year, won the toss and elected<br />

to bowl first and make use of<br />

their strike bowling unit, led by<br />

newly-capped Canterbury first<br />

class player Zak Foulkes.<br />

Leeston-Southbridge openers<br />

Toby Doyle and Brayden Hill<br />

tried to see the shine off the<br />

new ball before Foulkes skittled<br />

Doyle in the fifth over.<br />

He then claimed the big scalp<br />

of Harry Chamberlain for a duck<br />

while Will Greenslade trapped<br />

Canterbury stalwart William<br />

Williams cheaply.<br />

Reeling at 63/7, experienced<br />

pair Chris Beaton (18 runs off 57<br />

balls) and Dougald Munro (33<br />

off 37) made a spirited fightback<br />

before Leeston-Southbridge<br />

crumbled to be all out for 113 in<br />

the 39th over.<br />

Greenslade finished with the<br />

fine figures of 3/18 off his maximum<br />

nine overs, while Foulkes<br />

claimed 2/17 off his nine.<br />

Will Williams took the new<br />

ball to try and make early inroads<br />

in defending the under-par<br />

total, and while he got the big<br />

wicket of Zak Foulkes, caught<br />

behind for just 13, Leeston-<br />

Southbridge could do little to<br />

deny Darfield.<br />

Opener Nick Gilbert batted<br />

Rugby referee Sam O’Reilly<br />

stays connected to the game<br />

For Ellesmere’s top ranked rugby referee Sam O’Reilly, refereeing<br />

has now become a passion that has spanned nine years of Sam’s<br />

life since he began refereeing in 2013. Refereeing has allowed the<br />

local dairy farmer to stay connected with rugby, dividing his time<br />

between his family and his work running a dairy farm near Darfield.<br />

His rugby journey didn’t start with refereeing however.<br />

In his early years, farming took him around the country, starting out<br />

of high school in Counties Manukau, with stints across the farming<br />

regions of New Zealand, before settling in Canterbury and Darfield<br />

in 2006. Sam went on to play for Darfield for three years in a range<br />

of positions across the forward pack, a valuable asset for any<br />

senior team, before injury halted his playing career in 2009.<br />

As a result of this injury and personal factors away from rugby, Sam<br />

tried his hand elsewhere, giving both golf and rugby coaching a<br />

go. However, with the time needed to dedicate yourself to both, it<br />

became evident that family and work commitments would get in the<br />

way, eventually leading Sam to take up refereeing.<br />

Now a prominent member of the Ellesmere Rugby and Canterbury<br />

Referee communities, refereeing provided Sam an opportunity to<br />

stay connected with the game despite his commitments elsewhere.<br />

Throughout his nine years of refereeing, eight of which have been<br />

spent refereeing Premier rugby in Ellesmere and, more recently,<br />

throughout Canterbury as a member of the Canterbury Premier<br />

Referee panel.<br />

“I remember at my first (referees) meeting, they asked me why I<br />

wanted to be a referee and it made me think,” said Sam. “For me, it<br />

was the opportunity to stay in the game and continue to be involved<br />

in rugby.”<br />

As a father to three netball playing daughters, refereeing provided<br />

a level of flexibility that meant he could<br />

kill two birds with one stone. “Refereeing<br />

provided me with an opportunity to be able<br />

to watch my daughters play netball, but<br />

also continue to do my own thing. It gave<br />

me the ability to float between the two and<br />

take a weekend off when I need,” Sam said.<br />

As a result, refereeing has become more<br />

than a hobby for Sam, who since debuting<br />

at Premier level in 2014, has refereed north<br />

of 70 Premier games. He has consistently<br />

been one of the top referees in Canterbury,<br />

as well as ranking in the Top 5 for the<br />

Canterbury region in both 2020 and 2021.<br />

He has also refereed the last four Coleman<br />

Shield finals.<br />

Referee<br />

Sam O’Reilly<br />

in action as<br />

referee for<br />

Waihora v<br />

Southbridge<br />

“Making the Top 5 provided a lot of reward and satisfaction, and<br />

it’s a great vote of confidence for our region too, with the others<br />

recognised typically involved in national squads and roles.”<br />

Over the coming years, Sam has one goal in mind. “I’d love to get<br />

to 100 senior games.” said Sam. “Early in my career, due to moving<br />

around every three years or so, I managed to rack up <strong>30</strong>-50 senior<br />

games at each club, so those 100 games are my goal now. Before<br />

Covid, I hoped to get to that mark before my tenth year, but I’m still<br />

dedicated to get there within the next couple of years.”<br />

Outside of refereeing, Sam has turned his hand to adventure racing,<br />

looking to compete in next year’s two day Coast-to-Coast despite<br />

this year’s unfortunate postponement, adding to his long list of<br />

activities away from rugby.<br />

With another big season ahead for Sam and<br />

the Canterbury Rugby Referees Association,<br />

the Ellesmere sub-union is encouraging<br />

more people to get involved in rugby this<br />

season, whether that is refereeing, playing or<br />

coaching. It’s a great time to be connected<br />

to our region’s game and there are a number<br />

of ways for people to get involved, just ask<br />

HE’S NOT AS fashionable or<br />

Always B Miki or a slew of other<br />

top class stallions, but Gold Ace<br />

is getting a second chance at<br />

About a year ago it seemed<br />

Gold Ace’s days as a stallion were<br />

pretty much over, until a chance<br />

conversation between Gold Ace’s<br />

breeder and co-owner Derek<br />

Moore and Coes Ford-based<br />

horseman Ross Cameron.<br />

“Derek mentioned that they<br />

were going to geld the horse<br />

and I thought maybe I can use<br />

him for a few of my mares here,<br />

and it all went from there,” said<br />

Cameron.<br />

Cameron trains a team of<br />

eight. His best so far was Saginaw<br />

Gold Ace gets stud career encore<br />

• By Michael Guerin<br />

ROLLESTON-BASED All Stars’<br />

exceptional three-year-olds<br />

had two goal destinations at<br />

Alexandra Park on Friday night.<br />

The first was the winner’s<br />

circle after the group ones of the<br />

$250,000 Woodlands Northern<br />

Derby and the $150,000 Pascoes<br />

Northern Oaks.<br />

The second dream destination<br />

was the spelling paddock,<br />

which is where Akuta and True<br />

Fantasy will head now.<br />

Both three-year-olds were<br />

outstanding winning their respective<br />

classics, Akuta having<br />

to break 3:20 for the 2700m mobile<br />

on a windy night and grind<br />

his way past trailer Bollinger<br />

and gutsy leader Beach Ball.<br />

There is little doubt Akuta is<br />

the best of this crop, the bulk of<br />

who will likely head for a spell<br />

and come back for the second<br />

half of this season but they have<br />

also had some brutal racing and<br />

most look in need of a break.<br />

“I am looking forward to getting<br />

him to the paddock,” said<br />

trainer-driver Mark Purdon.<br />

“He has done a wonderful job<br />

and is a high-class horse but a<br />

break will help him because he<br />

has rarely had an easy run his<br />

impact in the Brisbane area, as of<br />

last week winning three in a row.<br />

Cameron retains a part ownership<br />

in the horse.<br />

He also trained and drove<br />

Three Rivers that Moore bred. By<br />

Gold Ace out of Trevi Bromac,<br />

he won on debut on the grass at<br />

Rangiora in February 2021. His<br />

career record is now an impressive<br />

four wins from six starts,<br />

including the $25,000 Listed<br />

Central Victorian Pacing Championship<br />

at Maryborough.<br />

Cameron has had 19 wins as a<br />

driver and 17 as a trainer since<br />

starting out in 2016. Now 14,<br />

Gold Ace has been on his property<br />

for about a year and “is busy<br />

most days doing natural service.”<br />

entire campaign.<br />

“I am also glad we elected to<br />

miss The Race with him, Ian<br />

(Dobson, co-owner) was really<br />

good about that.”<br />

Bollinger has been the big<br />

mover of the summer and<br />

Purdon suggests he is one horse<br />

who could race on over the winter<br />

and head to the Queensland<br />

carnival.<br />

IMPACT: Ross<br />

Cameron with<br />

Gold Ace.<br />

He stands for $1000. So far<br />

a total of 11 mares have been<br />

served.<br />

“We’ve tested three and they<br />

are all in foal.”<br />

On the track Gold Ace’s earnings<br />

topped $1.2 million, with<br />

22 wins in 69 starts. In 2011 he<br />

was nearly unbeatable, winning<br />

10 from 15. Most notable was his<br />

Beach Ball has gained plenty<br />

of admirers in the north and if<br />

he can keep improving and stay<br />

healthy and happy he is going<br />

to be a fun horse to have around<br />

the better races.<br />

While Akuta was only<br />

backing up what he did in his<br />

prelude last week by winning<br />

the Derby, True Fantasy really<br />

tested Purdon and partner<br />

Hayden Cullen’s skills to triumph<br />

in the Oaks.<br />

The stable was very open<br />

about her dust bowl battles of<br />

previous weeks that left her with<br />

respiratory issues, ones that only<br />

scoped clear last Tuesday.<br />

She was used early twice<br />

before trailing Dance Till Dawn<br />

in the Oaks but still just had<br />

enough left to hold out Lady Of<br />

The Light, whose gutsy second<br />

meant her driver Maurice<br />

McKendry finished second to<br />

storied rivalry with Terror To<br />

Love.<br />

While Terror went on to win<br />

three successive New Zealand<br />

Cups Gold Ace was never as<br />

dominant past his three-yearold<br />

season. His last race was a<br />

second to Border Control in the<br />

2015 Group Three Summer Cup<br />

at Addington.<br />

He has had more than 160<br />

progeny. So far they have had<br />

349 starts for 25 wins. Among<br />

the winners was Annerie (Gold<br />

Ace-Feyonce) who won here<br />

before taking out the Group<br />

Three Tasmanian Oaks and then<br />

heading to North America, while<br />

recent winners in this country<br />

have been the likes of White Diamond<br />

Gold, Charlie’s Ace, Pixie<br />

and Renko.<br />

As with any breeder Cameron’s<br />

hopeful he can produce a<br />

champion – in the meantime, as<br />

he puts it: “We are learning as we<br />

go”. – Harness News Desk<br />

duly delivered for punters.<br />

“The respiratory thing didn’t<br />

First senior women’s side to take<br />

the field for Prebbleton in 20 years<br />

• By Tatiana Gibbs<br />

PREBBLETON will field a<br />

senior women’s rugby side this<br />

season for the first time in two<br />

decades.<br />

Head coach Kevin Scovell said<br />

it’s an achievement that has been<br />

months in the making.<br />

“It’s massive for Prebbleton to<br />

welcome women’s senior rugby<br />

back,” he said.<br />

“We set up a subcommittee<br />

about 18 months ago and started<br />

working on the plan for this<br />

season.”<br />

Prebbleton will go up against<br />

Ashburton Celtic, Christchurch,<br />

Linwood, High School Old<br />

Boys, University of Canterbury,<br />

Lincoln University and Kaiapoi<br />

in the eight-team premier 15-aside<br />

competition that starts on<br />

Saturday.<br />

Scovell said the club had 26<br />

players currently registered for<br />

the team. There is a mix of new<br />

players, emerging girls from the<br />

club’s under-17 side, and returning<br />

older players who used to<br />

play for the club.<br />

Libby Thomas, 18, is returning<br />

after starting out as a Prebbleton<br />

junior when she was eight or<br />

nine.<br />

“My older siblings have all<br />

gone through the club, and my<br />

dad coaches. It’s a real family<br />

club.<br />

“It’s really exciting to finally<br />

TRAINING: Prebbleton teammates Libby Thomas (left) and<br />

Izzy Scovell at pre-season training.<br />

see a women’s team get together,<br />

with really decent numbers as<br />

well. It’s been a long time coming.”<br />

Kris Wenmoth, a former<br />

Prebbleton player and now women’s<br />

manager, is ecstatic about<br />

the new team. She was a member<br />

of the winning Prebbleton team<br />

of 1999, which broke up in 2003<br />

PREPARATION: Coach Kevin Scovell explains a new drill to<br />

the premier women’s grade players.<br />

following injuries and low team<br />

numbers.<br />

Wenmoth has been managing<br />

the Prebbleton women’s<br />

under-17 side for the last three<br />

years and said the club wanted<br />

to strengthen women’s rugby by<br />

building a step for the under-17<br />

girls to move on to.<br />

“I didn’t think it would<br />

happen, and it’s happening.<br />

Women’s rugby is booming in<br />

Canterbury,” she said.<br />

The club’s achievement comes<br />

at a time of growth for women’s<br />

rugby, with the Super-Rugby<br />

Aupiki competition launched<br />

this year and the women’s Rugby<br />

World Cup set to be held in New<br />

Zealand in October.<br />

Prebbleton player-coach Caitlin<br />

Blanchard said the exposure<br />

was helping to expand women’s<br />

rugby.<br />

“The female game is just growing<br />

and growing, and I think<br />

[the] numbers we’ve been having<br />

at trainings and registered has<br />

spoken to that,” she said.<br />

“A lot of the young girls,<br />

not only just the women, but<br />

the under 17s, can see a clear<br />

pathway if they do want to go<br />

play full time or professionally as<br />

well. It’s really, really exciting.”<br />

Canterbury Rugby said<br />

1500 females played rugby in<br />

2021 across all grades and the<br />

region is looking to reach a<br />

target of 1663 female players in<br />

<strong>2022</strong>.<br />

Canterbury Rugby women’s<br />

development officer Liz<br />

Worthington said they were<br />

thrilled to see another women’s<br />

team up and running.<br />

“We’re just really, really excited<br />

that they have got themselves in<br />

a position that they’re established<br />

and they’re ready to take the<br />

premier woman’s competition on<br />

for <strong>2022</strong>.”<br />

Pre-season training ‘an absolute nightmare’<br />

• By Chris Barclay<br />

COVID-19 HAS already proved<br />

a formidable opponent for<br />

Ellesmere rugby clubs, with the<br />

virus having a major impact<br />

leading into the division one<br />

competition.<br />

Pre-season schedules needed<br />

constant revision as warm-up<br />

games for Saturday’s opening<br />

round were scrapped once<br />

players tested positive and were<br />

confined to self-isolation.<br />

New Ellesmere sub union<br />

rugby manager Rich Harris<br />

summed up the predicament<br />

faced by all clubs: “The preseason<br />

has been an absolute<br />

nightmare.<br />

“A lot of the teams didn’t know<br />

the impact until after training<br />

on Thursday. We’ve been getting<br />

messages on Friday saying:<br />

‘We’ve had a team pull out, are<br />

you able to fix anything up?’<br />

“We’ve hopefully made it<br />

work. I believe all teams have<br />

played at least one game. If they<br />

haven’t played two, they have to<br />

have a decent contact session as<br />

well.”<br />

finalists, champions Southbridge<br />

and Prebbleton encapsulate<br />

competition with North and<br />

Mid Canterbury is scheduled to<br />

start next weekend.<br />

It was delayed to give Mid<br />

Canterbury clubs extra time<br />

to recover from a widespread<br />

Covid-19 outbreak.<br />

“We were down 10 players at<br />

the weekend,” Southbridge assistant<br />

manager Wayne Palmer<br />

said.<br />

Southbridge needed division<br />

two players to fill in during<br />

losses to Shirley and Sumner and<br />

that solution is likely to continue<br />

when they host Rolleston.<br />

“We’re quite lucky div 2 isn’t<br />

starting for a couple of weeks,<br />

that’ll help us through the initial<br />

bit,” he said.<br />

“It’s going to be an interesting<br />

year. You can’t plan a week ahead<br />

until they’re all got it (Covid-19)<br />

and got over it.<br />

“Honestly, you name a team<br />

on Thursday and you find you’ve<br />

lost them on Friday or Saturday<br />

morning.”<br />

Prebbleton coach Dave Kettles<br />

sympathised with their major<br />

obstacle to securing a first division<br />

one title since 1974.<br />

Prebbleton had one pre-season<br />

game with Methven cancelled<br />

and last weekend’s original<br />

opponent Pleasant Point also<br />

pulled out, leaving the squad to<br />

play a composite side from Burnside<br />

last Saturday.<br />

“It’s a little bit par for the<br />

course at the moment,” Kettles<br />

said.<br />

“Fitness wise we’re in quite a<br />

good place. But like all teams<br />

they’re a little bit short in the<br />

contact area and you can’t simulate<br />

a game at training.<br />

“We’ll certainly be a lot better<br />

off two weeks into the season,<br />

we’re probably a little bit behind<br />

the eight-ball compared to previous<br />

years.”<br />

Prebbleton open their season<br />

against last season’s strugglers<br />

Hornby, but already the clash<br />

with Southbridge is tantalising,<br />

whenever it takes place.<br />

“That’ll be a big day out. There<br />

hasn’t been much between us the<br />

last couple of years,” said Kettles,<br />

“While we’ve lost a few there’s<br />

some new faces around that are<br />

pretty promising. Hopefully<br />

we’ll be in a similar position to<br />

last year.”<br />

Palmer, meanwhile, wasn’t<br />

looking too far ahead to a rematch.<br />

“I haven’t had a good look at<br />

the draw, it changes so many<br />

bloody times,” he said.<br />

While there has inevitably<br />

been player movement, management<br />

set-ups have also changed<br />

in the off-season with one key<br />

move involving highly-regarded<br />

coach Bevan Sisson to Lincoln.<br />

MY PRIDE AND JOY<br />

On the fast track to success<br />

Currently leading the Toyota 86<br />

racing series, when <strong>Selwyn</strong> local Rowan<br />

Shepherd races, he wears his helmet<br />

bearing his late grandfather’s name<br />

“Bert” and probably the ‘special’ race<br />

socks his Mum gave him. Rowan fondly<br />

recalls his grandfather rocking up with<br />

his thermos in the car to watch him race.<br />

With ongoing support from his family<br />

and fiancée, Rowan has a firm goal to win<br />

the series. The win would book him a test<br />

drive with the Triple Eight Racing team<br />

and a drive in this year’s Bathurst Toyota<br />

86 race.<br />

Starting go-karting in Hastings at age<br />

five and keen to follow his older brother’s<br />

motorsport passion, he says, “I wanted<br />

to be just as good as him.” Rowan enjoys<br />

seeing kids as young as five bonding and<br />

enjoying time with their parents at the gokart<br />

track. He remarks, “NZ oozes with<br />

talent when it comes to motor racing,”<br />

and suggests kids start with go-karting.<br />

Rowan’s racing career began in a singleseater<br />

in the Formula First class at 18.<br />

Rowan loved sitting one inch above the<br />

ground, seeing his wheels, exclaiming, “It<br />

feels fast!” After winning two NZ titles in<br />

Formula First, his success grew. He shares<br />

13 New Zealand titles with his brother in<br />

various classes.<br />

After winning the Toyota 86 series last<br />

year, Rowan was offered a Lamborghini<br />

to race in the NZ Endurance series.<br />

Suddenly he was handling three times<br />

more horsepower and managing speeds<br />

up to 280 k/ph in a vehicle he describes as<br />

“A big angry beast to drive”. However, with<br />

a soft spot for older cars, Rowan admitted<br />

liking “Something old and a bit noisy;<br />

they’ve got so much more character.”<br />

Rowan’s racing highlight was driving<br />

in Spa and Barcelona in the European<br />

24-hour Endurance series. The team held<br />

second place until mechanical failure<br />

in the final hour destroyed their dream<br />

run. Rubbing shoulders with professional<br />

drivers from all over the world was<br />

thrilling. Unfortunately, Covid-19<br />

derailed his racing campaign, and Rowan<br />

returned to New Zealand.<br />

Rowan attributes his success to fantastic<br />

support. Recently this has included the<br />

legendary Greg Murphy. Rowan has<br />

access to the four-time Bathurst winner’s<br />

experience and knowledge, as Greg’s son<br />

is in his team. Rowan says a straight-up<br />

New Zealander telling you what you<br />

are doing wrong or right is the advice<br />

he wants. Participating in the NZ Elite<br />

Motorsport Academy’s high-intensity<br />

one-week boot camp was also a valuable<br />

experience.<br />

Known for his calm and collected<br />

demeanour, still, with self-belief and<br />

confidence, Rowan is fiercely competitive.<br />

As the championship advances, he takes<br />

more calculated risks, with his driving<br />

style becoming more aggressive. Making<br />

the most of practices and opportunities,<br />

Rowan is focused but believes balance and<br />

having fun are still needed. He utilises<br />

these successful traits in everyday life in<br />

his new role as an SMM Real Estate agent.<br />

Rowan’s dream of driving a V8 supercar<br />

in Australia, or racing in the Bathurst 12-<br />

hour race, may soon become a reality with<br />

his determination and skill.<br />

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS<br />

Reduce petrol<br />

consumption<br />

With fuel prices skyrocketing, who doesn’t<br />

want to save money? Simon and his team at<br />

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols will help you do<br />

this and ensure your vehicle runs at its best.<br />

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols offer general<br />

servicing and maintenance on any vehicle<br />

type, make and model and provide a full<br />

range of mechanical repairs, specialising in<br />

brakes and suspension.<br />

There are several ways to reduce petrol<br />

consumption, but it is essential to have your<br />

vehicle serviced, maintained and checked<br />

regularly. Simon, the owner of Rolleston<br />

Diesel & Petrols, states, “things can sneak up<br />

quite quickly and will cost you more in the<br />

long run if you don’t get it dealt with early”.<br />

In addition, regular car servicing will help<br />

maintain your engine’s fuel efficiency.<br />

Other ways to reduce petrol consumption<br />

are not letting a vehicle idle for too long,<br />

ensuring air filters are clean, and driving at<br />

a consistent speed. You should also monitor<br />

your tyres to ensure they are inflated<br />

correctly. Under-inflated tyres cause greater<br />

friction resulting in greater fuel consumption.<br />

Also, if your vehicle uses 95 or 98 highoctane,<br />

don’t be tempted to try and save<br />

money by opting for the cheaper 91 fuel. Even<br />

though it may cost more at the pump to fill<br />

your car, it is better for your engine and will<br />

be more economical and less damaging. Apart<br />

from these recommendations, Simon suggests<br />

an easy way to save money: “Avoid using your<br />

Dan will<br />

get you sorted<br />

As it’s now Autumn, it is a great time to<br />

prepare for the upcoming winter. Have your<br />

vehicle servicing up to date, check your tyres,<br />

antifreeze, brakes and wiper blades. However,<br />

Simon’s best piece of advice is, “Don’t be in a<br />

hurry to go anywhere; take your time.”<br />

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols is a small team<br />

of three friendly and knowledgeable staff<br />

working efficiently and effectively to get your<br />

vehicle working optimally. Book ahead to suit<br />

your timetable and if necessary parts can be<br />

preorganised to avoid delays. However, if you<br />

have a problem, the team are happy to deal<br />

with any drop-ins, and Simon advises, “We<br />

will check it out and put a plan in place and<br />

get it sorted.”<br />

GARDENING<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

Get your lawn in good<br />

shape during autumn<br />

AUTUMN CREATES favourable<br />

conditions to renovate and repair<br />

damaged lawns.<br />

Summer has a habit of leaving<br />

its mark on the garden; it’s<br />

often first spotted by patches<br />

that develop into a brown, dry<br />

looking lawn.<br />

Autumn brings welcome<br />

rain in addition to cooler air and<br />

soil temperatures which<br />

are conducive to healthier<br />

looking lawns. Lawns have many<br />

recreational and health benefits.<br />

They provide a place to<br />

exercise, an area for children<br />

to play or a space to entertain<br />

and relax. Financially, a well<br />

maintained lawn has proved to<br />

add value to properties.<br />

The environmental benefits<br />

of having a lawn are often<br />

overlooked. The grass in your<br />

lawn helps stabilise the soil<br />

(preventing erosion) and keeps<br />

the soil healthy due to the<br />

microbial activity (worms and all<br />

the good guys that work under<br />

the soil).<br />

Autumn tips for lawns:<br />

•Repair bare or damaged<br />

areas<br />

Bare patches in lawns can<br />

be created in high traffic areas,<br />

NOURISHMENT: Use a spreader to apply fertiliser on<br />

lawns.<br />

from pets, garden equipment or<br />

furniture or caused by long dry<br />

periods; these problems can be<br />

easily fixed. It is best to start by<br />

spraying any moss or weeds in<br />

the area and raking out.<br />

Create a nutrient rich and<br />

stable foundation. Rather than<br />

buying a large bag of lawn seed<br />

look for seed which is specifically<br />

designed to repair damaged<br />

and bare patches of lawn and<br />

produces even grass growth.<br />

•Spray for weeds and<br />

prickles<br />

Use a selective lawn weed<br />

spray to control broadleaf weeds<br />

and prickles in one application.<br />

Apply in autumn and spring<br />

when weeds are actively growing<br />

and before they become well<br />

established.<br />

If moss becomes a problem<br />

manage with moss control<br />

sulphate of iron.<br />

•Nourish now with lawn<br />

food<br />

Lawn fertiliser is a blend of<br />

nutrients formulated to promote<br />

the establishment and growth of<br />

lawns.<br />

It is high in nitrogen, which<br />

is responsible for promoting<br />

lush, green growth in lawns.<br />

Also contains phosphorus and<br />

this is good for establishing and<br />

maintaining root growth, which<br />

is the foundation of a lawn.<br />

WARMTH: Basil likes it dry and can be grown in pots or<br />

outdoors.<br />

How to beat the<br />

woes of growing basil<br />

SOME GARDENERS have no<br />

trouble keeping a plentiful supply<br />

of basil growing but others<br />

struggle to produce a few leaves<br />

for the top of a pizza.<br />

The trick to growing great basil<br />

is making sure you address its<br />

need for warmth. It really likes<br />

the sun.<br />

If you’re planting outside make<br />

sure you pick a spot in direct sun.<br />

And if you’re growing it in a little<br />

pot to have indoors make sure it’s<br />

near a window which also gets<br />

lots of sun.<br />

And this love of warmth doesn’t<br />

just apply to your regular sweet<br />

basil variety. Cinnamon basil, thai<br />

basil, greek basil, red basil and<br />

basil bush all favour a sunny spot.<br />

Once you’ve found the perfect<br />

sunny location, all you need to<br />

do is dig a little hole, around 3cm<br />

deep, and plant each seedling.<br />

If you’re planting outside – it<br />

always helps to give the seedlings<br />

a good kick start by adding<br />

a general fertiliser to the soil<br />

surrounding the seedlings. And,<br />

if you’re planting in a pot, use a<br />

good all round potting mix.<br />

Because basil likes to be warm<br />

it doesn’t like to get too wet. So<br />

don’t go overwatering it. Simply<br />

wait until it starts to droop<br />

then give it a good drink and it<br />

bounces right back.<br />

In around four to six weeks<br />

you can pick of the leaves and<br />

stems as you require them.<br />

Picking it will also ensure it keeps<br />

producing and if you spot any<br />

flower buds, cut them off before it<br />

goes to seed.<br />

Garden<br />

In the<br />

Winter veggie gardens begin in<br />

Autumn, so get on to sowing seeds<br />

of winter crops now. Lawns will<br />

appreciate a good feed of fertiliser<br />

after the summer. Choose a cooler,<br />

overcast day, and make sure you<br />

water the fertiliser in well after<br />

application. If you can time it for<br />

when rain is forecast, this is even<br />

better.<br />

Refresh your garden beds with<br />

Organic Compost, and get new<br />

gardens started with Garden Mix<br />

or Veggie Mix.<br />

Technology blends in Mazda MX-<strong>30</strong><br />

WHEN MY SON purchased his<br />

Mazda RX7 turbo it rekindled my<br />

interest in the rotary engine.<br />

You see, I’ve always been<br />

interested in owning an RX8, but<br />

have always wondered how it<br />

would be living with the freestyle<br />

rear doors on a daily basis.<br />

Well, now I know. I had<br />

Mazda’s new MX-<strong>30</strong> hybrid sport<br />

utility vehicle for almost three<br />

weeks and learned to accept the<br />

quirks of the rear doors on a daily<br />

basis, I found them to be quite<br />

manageable, even in close confine<br />

situations.<br />

Rear hinged doors are a bit<br />

of a departure from the norm,<br />

although you may be interested to<br />

know that even some Rolls-Royce<br />

models are sold with them today.<br />

Mazda has used them to good<br />

effect previously in the RX8 and<br />

some Bounty light commercial<br />

utes, and if my memory was<br />

good enough I should have<br />

remembered that style when my<br />

family had an old Jowett Javelin<br />

in the early 60s, but because I was<br />

only a child at the time I don’t.<br />

The MX-<strong>30</strong>, though, is a<br />

different concept again, it is a<br />

small-to-medium SUV that<br />

explores new boundaries for<br />

Mazda, it comes fully electric or,<br />

as in the test car’s case, as a mild<br />

hybrid.<br />

I evaluated the EV in<br />

December and enjoyed its ease<br />

of use, practicality and concept.<br />

It’s a model that fits well with<br />

the expectation of the modern<br />

electric vehicle buyer and,<br />

what’s more, it qualifies for the<br />

Government’s clean car subsidy<br />

of $8625, making its $74,990<br />

price tag quite tempting.<br />

The hybrid on the other hand,<br />

doesn’t qualify or any discount<br />

although it may become eligible<br />

for a rebate this year when<br />

it is proposed that a range<br />

of discounts and fees will be<br />

introduced by the Government<br />

based on CO2 ratings. It lists at<br />

$46,790.<br />

It’s fair to say the MX-<strong>30</strong> hybrid<br />

is only a mild hybrid, the lithiumion<br />

battery pack is charged by<br />

the regenerative energy you get<br />

while braking, and the storage is<br />

only there to power the ancillaries<br />

and assist in acceleration, taking<br />

the load off the engine so that<br />

fuel use is minimised. If you take<br />

into account Mazda’s Skyactiv<br />

programme that has economy<br />

as its ongoing aim, then you can<br />

guarantee the MX-<strong>30</strong> hybrid is a<br />

genuinely easy on fuel, and it is<br />

happy to sip away on 91-octane,<br />

which in this day and age of hefty<br />

fuel prices means that savings<br />

over a year are quite real.<br />

Mazda claims a 6.4-litre per<br />

100km combine cycle average.<br />

I was fortunate to be allowed<br />

the MX-<strong>30</strong> during the build<br />

up to Christmas, which in the<br />

Kiddie household means a lot of<br />

shopping of provisions for the<br />

ever-groaning pantry and fridges.<br />

That necessitated battling the<br />

inner-city traffic and that is never<br />

good for fuel usage, however the<br />

readouts were constant at around<br />

7l/100km, which I figured was a<br />

good result.<br />

On my highway run the engine<br />

is loping over at just 2250rpm at<br />

DESIGN:<br />

Freestyle<br />

rear doors<br />

are well<br />

integrated<br />

into the SUV<br />

body style.<br />

100km with the display graphics<br />

registering fuel use of 4l/100km<br />

instantaneously.<br />

Mazda claim power outputs of<br />

114kW and 200Nm, which are<br />

about what can be expected these<br />

days from a 2-litre displacement<br />

and are more than adequate<br />

for the MX-<strong>30</strong>’s role. Drive is<br />

channelled through a traditional<br />

six-speed automatic gearbox<br />

and it, too, is a beauty through<br />

its simplicity and undetectable<br />

changes; there are also paddle<br />

shifters should the driver so<br />

desire to take control over the<br />

gear change process.<br />

Other figures that are worth<br />

noting are those of acceleration.<br />

The MX-<strong>30</strong> hybrid will tackle a<br />

standstill to 100km/h run in 9sec<br />

and will complete that highway<br />

overtake in 6sec (80-120km/h).<br />

A sport mode will liven engine<br />

ability, but it also makes the<br />

gearbox reluctant to accept top<br />

gear, and that is not want you<br />

want if you are cruising at the<br />

legal road speed limit and trying<br />

to maximise fuel use.<br />

On my highway run the<br />

MX-<strong>30</strong> cruised quietly and<br />

efficiently as distance was covered<br />

comfortably. It sits stable on the<br />

road and leans just ever so gently<br />

as the corners are met, the spring<br />

and damper rates set so that<br />

suspension absorption is keen<br />

along with arresting most of the<br />

gravitational force.<br />

Not only does the MX-<strong>30</strong><br />

hybrid tick all the boxes of<br />

performance, economy and<br />

handling, it also has all the<br />

• Price – Mazda MX-<strong>30</strong><br />

hybrid Limited, $46,790<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4395mm; width, 1795mm;<br />

height, 1545mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

front-wheeldrive,<br />

1998cc, 114kW,<br />

200Nm, six-speed<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 9sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 6.4l/100km<br />

goodies that a buyer would want<br />

from a new generation model.<br />

To simplify Mazda’s<br />

specification levels for both the<br />

hybrid and EV, it goes something<br />

like this, the EV has Takami<br />

specification which means it gets<br />

everything Mazda has in terms of<br />

kit. The hybrid has Limited spec<br />

that is without leather. I’m all for<br />

that, I’m not a big leather trim<br />

fan and the cloth interior of the<br />

hybrid is comfortable and hardwearing.<br />

It must be noted too,<br />

that Mazda as a company<br />

has sustainability as a key<br />

manufacturing ingredient and<br />

the MX-<strong>30</strong> has areas of a tasteful<br />

cork-type interior trim material<br />

that I like and Mazda says it is<br />

durable.<br />

Elsewhere there is satellite<br />

navigation, head-up display,<br />

keyless entry and ignition,<br />

electric sunroof and radar cruise<br />

control. The latter is part of a<br />

beefy Mazda Safety Sense suite<br />

of kit that easily earns the MX-<br />

MAZDA MX-<strong>30</strong>:<br />

Petrol/hybrid<br />

system for those<br />

who don’t want<br />

a fully electric<br />

vehicle.<br />

<strong>30</strong> a five star Australasian New<br />

Car Assessment Program safety<br />

rating.<br />

The MX-<strong>30</strong> isn’t a big car, but<br />

it is big on value and what it<br />

does do is convert its compact<br />

proportions into practicality.<br />

Cargo load space is listed at<br />

370-litres, if you fold down the<br />

rear seats that area extends to<br />

a generous 1<strong>30</strong>8-litres, and I<br />

can report that utilising that<br />

entire area will easily house a<br />

hefty supermarket shopping<br />

experience.<br />

In terms of rear seat occupant<br />

comfort, well, that is really an<br />

area for those slight of build.<br />

Sure there are three seat belts,<br />

but access through the freestyle<br />

doors requires some technique,<br />

and leg room once in there is at<br />

a premium. Nevertheless, the<br />

MX-<strong>30</strong> suited my wife and I well<br />

during the lengthy evaluation.<br />

I particularly enjoyed its<br />

simplicity while knowing<br />

underneath all of the mechanical<br />

elements were working together<br />

to give you the most efficient<br />

driving experience.<br />

If the MX-<strong>30</strong>’s technical aspects<br />

aren’t tempting enough – EV or<br />

hybrid – there is something else<br />

about buying a Mazda that offers<br />

much peace of mind, and that is<br />

having the company’s three aftersale<br />

packages all included in the<br />

price. They offer free servicing for<br />

up to 100,000km, an unlimited<br />

kilometre new vehicle warranty<br />

and unlimited kilometre roadside<br />

assistance, all up to five years after<br />

purchase.<br />

SUPPLY CHAIN CHALLENGES<br />

AND LABOUR SHORTAGES<br />

CHANGING THE FACE OF<br />

SELWYN’S LIFESTYLE<br />

PROPERTY MARKET<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> district’s lifestyle property market is seeing the effects of the ‘perfect storm’ in the<br />

residential construction sector, according to a senior figure in the province’s real estate sector.<br />

Bayleys Canterbury country sales manager<br />

Kevin Jenkins says that international and domestic<br />

product supply chain disruptions, labour shortages,<br />

and incredibly high numbers of building consents<br />

requiring work to be undertaken have put a<br />

proverbial handbrake on the number of new lifestyle<br />

block homes being built in and around <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

“Traditionally, within the lifestyle property<br />

dynamic is the sale of bare land sections to<br />

those wishing to build their ‘dream home,’<br />

and then the sale of lifestyle land with an<br />

existing home already on site,” said Jenkins.<br />

“Typically for <strong>Selwyn</strong>, interest in these<br />

sectors has been on a roughly 67–33 split…<br />

with 33% of enquiries seeking just bare<br />

sections on which to build, and 67% seeking<br />

to walk into an existing home on a good size<br />

landholding in a rural or semi-rural location.<br />

“Of late, that split has skewed to somewhere<br />

nearer 24% of enquiries seeking just sections,<br />

and 76% seeking to walk into an existing home.”<br />

Jenkins said more and more lifestyle block buyers<br />

were now indicating that while their original<br />

choice was to have a bespoke dwelling built<br />

for them, a higher number were now indicating<br />

they were happier to buy readymade and<br />

have the residence adapted to their plans.<br />

“Concerns over supply chain issues encompassing<br />

accessibility to, and delivery of, building materials<br />

and supplies, along with the rising costs of<br />

those building materials and supplies, are being<br />

compounded by a shortage of residential tradies,<br />

ranging from hammer-hands and builders,<br />

through to concrete layers, qualified electricians,<br />

plumbers, and roofers. Ongoing delays for a wide<br />

range of products are anecdotally stretching<br />

the build time for an average house in rural<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> from five months to 12 months.”<br />

ASB’s Quarterly Economic Forecast report out in<br />

February confirmed what Bayleys’ <strong>Selwyn</strong> team have<br />

been hearing, that housing construction levels were<br />

not only being hampered by material supply chain<br />

issues, but also by labour shortages – short term<br />

through the disruption of Omicron, and medium<br />

to long-term by border immigration restrictions.<br />

Kevin Jenkins of Bayleys said that for those on<br />

the delivery side of the lifestyle home building<br />

equation in <strong>Selwyn</strong>, project managers and<br />

builders were having to be more upfront about<br />

when a project could realistically begin, and a<br />

likely completion date. Meanwhile, potential price<br />

rise implications had to be made transparent<br />

so homeowners could budget accordingly.<br />

“Generally speaking, <strong>Selwyn</strong> lifestylers tend to<br />

be ‘roll up your sleeves and give it a go’ type of<br />

people, and have indicated they are even prepared<br />

to undertake minor alterations or refurbishment<br />

work themselves, albeit very few have put their<br />

hands up to undertake complete ‘from the<br />

foundations up’ projects,” Mr Jenkins said.<br />

“After all, they are buying lifestyle properties for<br />

the ‘lifestyle’ and ambience of the surrounding<br />

rural countryside, not to be knee deep in timber<br />

trusses and ceiling insulation for a couple of years.”<br />

Standing proud in a sublime setting<br />

Taking la dolce vita to new heights, this sumptuous residence presides over 3.85-hectares within the select enclave<br />

of Trendon Green Estate. Mirroring Italian architectural inspiration, the entrance and circular driveway with water<br />

feature echoes a traditional Tuscan villa, with the dwelling’s high ceilings, time-tested permanent materials and<br />

generously scaled floorplan. Symmetrical shapes are keystones of the manicured, irrigated grounds which host an<br />

in-ground heated pool and an “as is where is” tennis court along with productive gardens. A shared well and six-bay<br />

shed with electricity supports the management of four tree-bounded paddocks. Equidistant to services in<br />

Prebbleton, Rolleston and Lincoln, and zoned for Broadfield School and Lincoln High School. This property assures<br />

an escape from the ordinary. Call us today for viewing times.<br />
