New pupil the fourth

generation for family

• By Susan Sandys

MEMORIES OF Lincoln

Primary School going back to

the 1920s were recalled this

week as a local family moved

into its fourth generation of

attendance.

Lincoln’s oldest living resident

to have been born in the town,

97-year-old Conrad Eilken, was

proud to see his great granddaughter,

five-year-old Iris

Norton, enter through the school

gates for her first day on Monday.

“I knew every person in

every house in Lincoln when

I was a kid,” Conrad said as

he remembered his childhood

days.

The school was at the same

site. It had three classrooms,

with only two in use, one for

primers and one for standards.

Converting a rugby try

on the school field was by

kicking the ball over a specific

section of fencing, out onto

Boundary Rd at one end or

into the neighbour’s paddock

at the other end. Retrieving the

ball from the road was not a

problem.

FOUR GENERATIONS: Conrad Eilken was one of Lincoln Primary School’s original pupils

when he enrolled in 1929. His great granddaughter, five-year-old Iris Norton, had her

first day at the school on Monday. Her mother Haylie Eilken and grandfather Ian Eilken

(also pictured) also attended the school.

Secret

camera

bid to

identify

boy racers

• By Susan Sandys

PEOPLE ARE secretly putting

surveillance cameras on their

properties to try and help police

catch boy racers.

It comes as boy racer activity

continues to be a problem in the

district.

Senior Sergeant Anna Lloyd

said increasing numbers of

residents were putting up surveillance

cameras outside their

homes to capture night-time

footage of burnouts.

Police were then using the footage

to identify and then

take action against specific drivers.

“If it assists us in identifying

some of these vehicles that are

doing burnouts we can use that

later on to go and impound the

vehicle,” Lloyd said.

Residents were allowed to

legally operate security cameras

at the front of their homes, as

long as they were not capturing

private spaces, such as a

neighbour’s home or yard, she

said.

immune.

The Lincoln Convenience

were struck by ram raiders

last week. The CCTV video

two incidents involved the

were young.

The damage caused was

in the thousands of dollars

indicates the offenders were

Given the age and inexperience

of the ram raiders,

someone in the wrong place

Saturday (see pages 25, 26).

Ford ute sought after ram raids

• By Susan Sandys

RAM RAIDERS in a stolen ute

caused thousands of dollars

damage at a dairy and garage.

The offenders failed to get into

the cigarette cabinets at Lincoln

Convenience Store and Kirwee

Challenge, but made off with

chocolate bars, milk and vaping

products.

Police say it was the same trio,

in the same Ford Courier flat

deck ute, responsible for both

incidents in the early hours of

Monday last week.

Lincoln Convenience Store

manager Rick Sun said the three

offenders, which he believed to

be male youths, reversed the ute

between safety bollards outside

to smash their way into the store,

about 5am. Two of the young

men then ran in and tried to

smash open the cigarette cabinet

with a hammer and crowbar.

When that didn’t work, they

quickly grabbed chocolate bars,

Cookie Time products and a

2-litre bottle of milk, leaving

after about 20 seconds.

Sun said his landlord would be

replacing the smashed window,

which is now boarded up. He believed

the law needed to change

to ensure more serious consequences

for youths committing

such crimes.

FRUSTRATED: Lincoln Convenience Store

manager Rick Sun is considering beefing up

security following an early morning ram raid.

“Now materials are short,

we will have to wait more than

one month to get the window

replaced, this makes me very annoyed,”

Sun said.

He was considering extra

security measures, such as a

security sliding gate across the

front of the store.

Kirwee Challenge manager

Vanessa Moore told Stuff last

week the offenders shattered

a window to break in about

3.40am, before smashing up the

cigarette cabinet, but failing to

get it open.

Ram raiders spent about 20 seconds inside Lincoln Convenience Store

grabbing whatever they could.

The group instead stole other

cigarette accessories, vape products

and chocolate bars.

Senior Sergeant Anna Lloyd

said it was the same vehicle

and offenders involved in both

incidents.

It followed an incident earlier

in the month where three youths

in a stolen Nissan Tiida used a

hammer to smash into Prebbleton

Dairy, quickly loading items

into shopping bags once inside.

Lloyd said the age of the offenders

in last week’s Lincoln

and Kirwee incidents were

unknown. This was hard to determine

due to clothing including

hoods and masks concealing

facial and other features. It could

not be confirmed whether or not

they were youths.

She urged anyone with

information to come forward,

believing the Lincoln incident in

particular may have been heard

by people in the area, or anyone

seeing the Ford Courier driving

in the area.

“It would have made quite a

loud noise at that time of the

morning,” Lloyd said of the raid.

Gatherings

pose road

safety risk

• From page 1

Identifying offenders and their

vehicles was not always possible

for police to do at the gatherings

themselves.

“Often we can’t get close

enough. By the time they see

us coming they stop doing that

and move on, so we don’t get the

opportunity to identify these

vehicles,” Lloyd said.

And the sheer volume of the

gatherings, sometimes involving

more than 100 cars, could also

make it difficult for police to identify

offenders at the scene.

“Usually by the time we break

up a group like that, we can’t pinpoint

who has done what, but it is

really helpful to go back through

footage.”

Residents did not want boy

racers outside their homes damaging

roads. She said while the

gatherings themselves posed a

road safety risk, the black burnout

marks left behind could also present

a risk by covering white and

yellow road safety markings.

She said residents putting up

some cameras were also helping

deter boy racers from their areas.

“If they know they are going

to get caught in a particular area

they won’t go there, it’s a real

deterrent,” Lloyd said.

• From page 1

“There was not a lot of traffic

in those days. Mr Henly (a local

farmer) used to go past in his old

Fiat car, and that was about it,”

Conrad said.

The road was shingle, conditioned

by a horse-drawn grader.

The town had a train station,

and pupils would catch the train

to Hornby for school dental clinics.

When they were not in the

dental chair, they could be powering

the dental drill by moving

one of their feet up and down on

a treadle.

Conrad recalled one occasion

when fellow pupil Rex Moir was

in the dental chair, and he was

working the treadle relatively

slowly, thinking he was being

kind to his friend.

“The dentist said go faster with

the treadle, I thought I was going

as fast as I should!”

Lincoln Primary School’s roll

was only about 50. Today, it has

grown to more than 600.

Iris was excited to be attending

on her first day, having been

impressed by what she saw on

previous school visits.

“I like all of it,” she said when

asked what was her favourite

thing about the school.

Hot water system thefts

POLICE ARE following leads

as they investigate who may be

responsible for the theft of a gas

hot water system.

Constable Ben Rutherford said

one stolen unit was recovered a

few weeks ago, after a search warrant

was executed at an address

in Yaldhurst.

“The unit was stolen from a

commercial premise in Lincoln.

We are following up some leads

in regards to who may be responsible,”

Rutherford said.

It comes as the district experiences

a spike in thefts of the

units, particularly at Lincoln and

No date yet for reopening of hospitals

• By Susan Sandys

DARFIELD AND Ellesmere

Hospitals face the possibility of

permanent closure as a future

model of healthcare is mooted.

The Canterbury District

Health Board temporarily closed

the two hospitals, which have

eight and 10 beds respectively,

in March, alongside Oxford and

Waikari hospitals. The closures

were due to the Omicron outbreak

putting pressure on staff

resources.

While the health board said at

the time it expected to re-open

the four facilities within six

weeks of the outbreak’s peak,

that plan has now changed.

The board has set a date for

only one of the hospitals to reopen,

which is Oxford, in June.

Executive director of nursing

Becky Hickmott said Canterbury

was experiencing a longer tail for

the outbreak than anticipated, as

case numbers, hospitalisations

and staff sickness and isolation

levels remained high.

It still did not have a definite

date for re-opening of Selwyn’s

two hospitals of Darfield and

Ellesmere. This was dependent

on the ongoing demands of

the pandemic, alongside other

pressures such as a nationwide

shortage of nurses and other

medical staff.

While not directly answering a

question from the Selwyn Times

as to whether the facilities were

at risk of closing permanently,

Hickmott said the health

board wanted to discuss

service delivery with the

hospitals’ communities.

“We are also taking

this opportunity to have

a discussion with our

rural communities on

how we might deliver

an improved mix of services

in these rural areas that

makes the best possible use of

our resources, and allows some

services to be provided closer to

home,” Hickmott said.

A working group comprising

clinical and operational staff,

together with community representation,

would be convened to

develop a proposal on a

possible future model of

care in these communities.

The health board

was aiming to share the

proposal in four to six

weeks’ time.

District councillor

Grant Miller urged the

district health board

to reopen the hospitals in the

meantime.

Both Ellesmere and Darfield

communities had a longstanding

fear their hospitals would close,

had had little upgrading of their

facilities in recent years.

As well as aged residential and

respite care, they provided care

for post-operative and end-of-life

patients. His own mother had

stayed at Ellesmere Hospital as

she recovered from surgery.

“The service is extremely

valued. The people who are

(working) there are from the

communities, so often they

know the patients who are based

there,” Miller said.

He said a future model of care

could include something the

district council could be involved

in, similar to the new Selwyn

Health Hub at Rolleston. The

district council owns the hub,

where the health board and other

providers lease space.

“New services may not be on

the existing site, but having the

services retained is the key issue,”

Miller said.

The Selwyn Health Hub’s

maternity facility will soon

open as services relocate to the

site from Lincoln Maternity

Hospital.

Health Board will open

the same time, depending

on whether there any

not yet have an update on

‘Shining light’ rescues driver from crash

• By Susan Sandys

A MAN wearing a head lamp

raced through the darkness,

arriving as a shining light of

rescue to a driver trapped in his

vehicle.

Richard Steel of Brookside says

he is not a hero, but “just your

average Joe.”

Steel ran to the scene of a car

crash on Wednesday night last

week, from his garage where he

had been working with a head

lamp on.

“I heard the skid and the

crunch,” Steel said.

“Within minutes the

neighbours were behind me,

calling the ambos.”

He saw a four-wheel-drive

car on its driver’s side in a water

race, with an elderly man inside.

“I called out to the fellow,

he said ‘No I’m okay, just I’m

stuck’,” Steel said.

“He was coherent, we felt it

was a better idea to get him out

somewhere dry and warm.”

The driver had failed to

take a corner while travelling

through the small settlement

at the intersection of Brookside

Burnham Rd and Boundary

Creek Rd, about 11pm. His car

hit a power pole before going

into the water race.

Steel said the car was filling

up with water to the point of

submerging the right side of the

BEFORE

man’s body.

The obvious way to extract

him was through the front

passenger door, which was on

the upside of the car. However,

this was obstructed by the

branch of an oak tree. Steel ran

back to his house and grabbed a

hand saw. He sawed the branch

off, opened the door and climbed

into the car.

The man’s right leg was

trapped under the steering

wheel, but Steel freed him by

tilting the seat back a couple of

notches.

The man appeared to be

in shock and to have taken a

knock to the head, but was

aware enough to make sure he

retrieved his glasses, which had

apparently fallen off, and check

that his cellphone was still in his

pocket.

One of the neighbours held

open the door as Steel pulled the

man from the car, then helped

him onto the bank of the water

race.

Steel believed a contributing

factor to the crash was a lack

of street lighting at the corner,

where crashes had occurred in

the past. He had complained to

the district council about two

months ago about a street light

on the corner not working.

“It’s quite a nasty corner, I

think a lack of lighting on the

corner certainly contributed.”

District council infrastructure

group manager Murray Washington

said a request was made

on March 23 to fix the light,

but there was an error with the

location of the job. He expected

the light would be fixed this

week, and said it would not be

appropriate to comment on possible

causes of the crash without

seeing the police report.

After the crash Steel towed

the car out of the water race,

concerned that diesel and oil

might leak and kill trout and

eels.

Leeston Volunteer Fire

Brigade deputy chief Matt Walker

said firefighters responded to the

scene, having received a report

of a trapped driver. They were

pleased to see the man had been

freed by residents, and thanked

them. The man was talking to

paramedics who were treating

him.

“The outcome was great,”

Walker said, adding the driver

had been lucky to survive.

“He hit a very large power

pole.”

Confirming the car was

not leaking any diesel or oil,

they left it in the water race.

Firefighters liaised with police

regarding salvage, which was the

responsibility of the car owner

and their insurance company.

The trapped man was taken

to Christchurch Hospital by

ambulance in a moderate

condition.

A NEW outdoor op shop in

Rolleston will soon open an onsite

“boutique” full of pre-loved

ball suits and gowns.

It is the latest development

at the bustling Hope Op Shop,

which customers and volunteers

describe as a “community hub.”

The shop, comprising of three

shipping containers full of preloved

clothes, books, toys and

bric-a-brac, opens 10am to 1pm

three days per week, weather

permitting.

“It’s a hub, we don’t have many

hubs to connect in Rolleston,”

said volunteer Chris Parker.

“Rolleston is a lovely welcoming

community, and this is part

of it,” said regular customer

Heidi Baker, who moved to the

town in December.

Manager Dana George opened

the shop, on Springston Rolleston

Rd, next door to Rolleston

Christian School, in February.

George has seen customer

demand skyrocket since, and

she is hoping the new ball attire

initiative will be just as popular.

A Portacom arriving on site

this week would be carpeted

and painted to become the new

boutique-style base for the evening

wear.

“Ball season is coming up

at the colleges, and we have so

many people who can’t afford

ball gowns and ball suits,”

George said.

The former flight attendant

Milky Way photo earns high praise

• By John Cosgrove

BEING RECOGNISED on the

global stage for his creative skills

came as a shock for stargazer

and astro-photographer Nick

Faulkner.

THe graphic artist/

videographer found his photo,

Solitude, the Milky Way as seen

over Castle Hill, was judged one

of the top 25 in the world in an

annual competition hosted by

travel photography blog Capture

The Atlas.

THe competition showcases the

year’s best 25 photos of the Milky

Way taken during the peak of

the Milky Way season, with the

aim of inspiring and sharing the

beauty of the galaxy.

This year’s list included images

taken by photographers from 12

countries.

“I was shocked, I didn’t expect

it at all, especially with so

many competitors and so many

other people who are amazing

photographers, it’s a big shock,”

said Faulkner, who lives in

Halswell.

Faulkner was one of three New

Zealand photographers lauded in

the latest competition, images by

Rachel Roberts of the West Coast

and Evan Mckay of Palmerston

North were also placed in the

top 25.

“I know of them, it’s a small

group of enthusiasts who look

to the stars with their cameras

and I’ve chatted with them many

times online,” he said.

Outside of his day-to-day

work schedule, Faulkner can be

found catching the midnight

sun in lonely quiet places in the

Southern Alps.

“We’ve got some of the best

dark skies in the world here.

“We don’t have too many big,

massive cities like you do in the

States and other places, so you

can easily get away from light

pollution.

“In my opinion, because we’re

in the Southern Hemisphere we

have the best view of our Milky

Way,” he said.

Faulkner runs Hueman

specialises in landscapes and

RECOGNITION: Solitude, is of the Milky Way as seen from Castle Hill.

astrophotography.

The Castle Hill photo came

about after 30 hours of waiting

and hoping.

“I had been at the site 24 hours

earlier, and had shot a panorama

of the sky and the stars.

“Later, when I was looking at

the weather forecast, I saw there

was the possibility of snow on

the way, so I rushed back and

was just lucky I guess, as the

weather cleared just in time for

me to get a clear shot with snow

on the ground, which made for a

great picture,” he said.

Using a specialist star tracker

device to keep his camera lined

up with the stars and counteract

the earth’s rotation, Faulkner

SKILLS: Stargazer and astro-photographer Nick Faulkner. Right: Milky way photos along with a selfie.

said he shot about 33 fourminute

panorama exposures.

“It’s very time-consuming, but

the results are worth it later.”

Faulkner said the attraction

of astrophotography was about

more than just being under the

stars.

“I’m usually out in the middle

of nowhere, late at night, and

although I guess it sounds

cheesy, I love being at one with

the sky, thinking about the

universe.

“It’s just incredible being out

there alone, looking up and

seeing how much you can see,”

he said.

Get Winter Ready!

Utilize those fallen leaves

by putting them in your

compost bin, they will break

down over winter ready for

your spring garden bed.

It’s a good time to prune fruit

trees & roses. Use a strong

sharp tool, secateurs for

pencil thick twigs, loppers for

larger branches or a pruning

saw when thicker than 20cm.

Having condensation

control and prevention

methods lessens the risk

of having a damp home

where mould can grow &

over time wood can rot.

Heating a cold room takes

longer than heating a warm

room. Run your heater less

& save money by fixing

draughts and heat loss

around doors & windows.

I note with interest the possible

outcome of the Carter Group

proposal for additional

residential development in

Lincoln.

I note also the reporting

that “residents in Lincoln are

concerned about the outcome”,

but I would respectfully suggest

that not all residents are of that

view.

While I acknowledge the efforts

of those for their energy in

opposing this proposal, I would

now suggest that there may be a

bigger fight on the horizon for

the good residents of Lincoln.

This relates to the proposals

arising from consideration of

future planning for “Greater

Christchurch” (which also

includes for the defining of

future conditions for planning in

Selwyn and Waimakariri).

Residents may have noted that

cabinet ministers of the current

Government have recently joined

with the Greater Christchurch

Partnership Group, no doubt

with the intention to increase

the efforts on future planning as

deemed necessary by the Labour

Government, and the many

ideologically driven bureaucrats

in both the Government fold and

those involved with the future

Christchurch environment.

While there may be a number

of future policies which may not

be favoured by residents in Lincoln,

I would particularly draw

reference to the matter of “intensification”

(sometimes referred to

as the creation of “little boxes”)

for future housing, often involving

multi-storied development,

with probably no provision

for parking, and with a lack of

land for the quiet enjoyment of

families in such accommodation.

I would think that most residents

in Lincoln would not condone

this particular development,

which is presently manifesting

itself in many suburbs in the

city, with all of the misgivings of

residents there.

Perhaps this is one of the

reasons why there is a current

exodus from the “failed city” to

the friendly rural towns in the

Selwyn District?

So, back to the efforts of

the residents who opposed

the Carter Group proposals.

I would respectfully suggest that

they may consider whether or

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

not to have a look at the Greater

Christchurch proposals and possibly

channel their energy into

deciding what Lincoln residents,

and the Selwyn District Council,

really want for the ongoing

development of this pleasant and

friendly rural town.

I don’t think that “big” is necessarily

beautiful, or that “one

size” fits all. I believe it is important

that we all have an early,

and important, say in the future

for the good people of Lincoln. –

Tony Gemmill, Lincoln.

Rates increases

I am truly surprised about the

lack of correspondence over the

past few weeks regarding the

huge rates increase the district

council is intending to inflict on

its ratepayers (7.5 per cent).

At what stage does the council

acknowledge at some point its

ratepayers (those that pay your

salary) can no longer afford such

high increases in it rates.

Given that the cost of living

has been reported to be at seven

per cent and is likely to increase,

means the residents of Rolleston

are 14.5 per cent worse off than

this time last year and for those

on the pension makes it very difficult

to make ends meet.

We want to hear your views

on the issues affecting life

in Selwyn

LETTERS 13

Bigger fight on the horizon for Lincoln residents?

I note that the district council

has advised that this year the

rates will be calculated on the

new CV of your home. So on

that basis can someone explain

why a house in West Melton

which has a CV of $975.000 will

only incur a rate increase of 5.5

per cent yet a house in Rolleston

with a new CV of $790.000

(almost $200.000 lest than West

Melton) will incur a whopping

7.5 per cent.

I have read a lot about the

council plans for the coming

years but have not seen anything

in place for the council to reduce

its spending to decrease some of

the impending rates increases.

I think that a lot of ratepayers

are going to be very upset and

stressed when the new rates bill

arrive in the post. – Trevor A

Longmuir, Rolleston.

Gala event planned

for hall reopening

Stadium funding

I would like to say that, since

Selwyn rates are going up more

than initially indicated, I do

not agree with Selwyn helping

Christchurch with extra stadium

funding.

We have a lot more to consider

now with huge growth in our

area.

No to helping the Christchurch

City Council with stadium

funding. – Sandra Woodham,

Prebbleton.

I totally agree Selwyn and

Waimakariri should contribute

to the stadium.

It is a disgrace our Canterbury

and Crusaders teams are still

playing at Orangetheory Stadium

five years after the stadium was

meant to be built.

There will be no big All Blacks

games played in Christchurch

until the stadium is up and running.

If it had been built by 2017 as

expected there would not have

been all the large cost increases,

just get it done. – Pauline Black,

Rolleston.

I do not believe we in Selwyn

have any responsibility to support

the Christchurch stadium.

When the stadium was in its

planning stage there was pressure

to ensure it was in the central

Christ-church area so that it

would support the surrounding

accommodation and hospitality

venues who can then, in turn,

pay their leases to the big landowners

of central Christchurch.

The result of its siting is that

access by public transport from

Selwyn and Waimakariri is very

difficult, while private transport

has issues around parking

and involves travelling across

much of the CBD. The former

meat works site at Islington was

briefly considered, but its ease of

access to Selwyn and Waimakariri

did not appear to feature as

a worthwhile argument.

It is too late for Christchurch

to request assistance from

Selwyn when we were left out

of all earlier decision making.

Their problem is of their

own making. I did not move to

Selwyn to then be saddled with

Christchurch’s problems. David

Clyne, West Melton.

RARE FEATURE: Southbridge Hall has had its Crittal-style

windows replaced with replicas as part of a restoration.

• By Susan Sandys

NINE MONTHS after

restoration of Southbridge Hall

began, the historic building is

re-opening on Sunday.

The district council is hosting

a celebration fun day at the 1930

building, originally built after

fire destroyed the original early-

1900s wooden hall.

Facilities project manager Sue

Faulkner said the building was

important to the township. This

was due not only to its history,

but also as it was a venue hosting

community events and meetings,

workshops, wedding receptions

and many other community activities.

The Thompson Memorial

Library is also part of the site.

The district council began

work on restorations and maintenance

September last year.

It included replacement of the

hall’s 26 Crittal-style windows

(steel frame with glass panels)

with replicas, re-rendering

and repainting of the exterior

and new roof claddings, with

upgrades to the Thompson Memorial

Library and Southbridge

Community Pool. The project

cost $530,000.

Faulkner said the Crittal-style

windows were a rare architectural

feature in New Zealand,

particularly in Canterbury since

the earthquakes.

“This restoration and upgrades

to the library and community

pool are all part of a wider series

of upgrades to the key community

areas of Southbridge,

including the Southbridge Reserve

across the road, which had

a significant upgrade last year,”

she said.

The fun day will be held

1-3pm. It will include a jump jam

performance from Southbridge

School and there will be a free

sausage sizzle, bouncy castle and

face painting, along with a coffee

cart and ice cream truck on site.

“We’re hopeful it will be

a celebration for the whole

community to come together in

one of their most well-used and

loved spaces and let them know

the hall is open again for their

use,” Faulkner said.

Hornby Club’s multi-million

dollar revamp complete

ADVERTORIAL

The Hornby Club has finally completed its multi-million

dollar redevelopment after three years. A part of the

community for more than 65 years, The Hornby Club has

been extensively modernised to become an inviting and

contemporary events and entertainment facility.

Tim Mathews, Hornby Club’s General Manager, says

the Club carefully walks the line between a member’s

organisation that supports the needs of its long-time

members and also its new role as a dining and events

destination for Christchurch.

“It’s very exciting to finally open the doors to our

beautiful new facility. It is a bright, light and welcoming

space that our members are thrilled with. We still offer

many of the activities that Clubs are known for like

section sports, affordable meals and a fantastic sports bar

and gaming room, but we now offer a lot for families and

for our corporate events community,” says Tim.

What Tim is referring to, is the new Chalmers

Restaurant with its colourful indoor playground and its

famous Sunday night buffet.

“We know families want somewhere to watch their kids

safely play, while they enjoy a quiet drink with friends

and a family-style meal. This is the gap that Chalmers

Restaurant fills in the local area and Christchurch dining

market,” says Tim.

In addition, the new Club includes a 450 pax Events

Centre and multiple Board Rooms, party spaces and

meeting rooms. The Club’s Corporate clients are quickly

booking available spots, a strong indication that the events

industry is starting to return under the new Orange light

setting.

“We are starting to see a solid return of corporate events

and private bookings for our state-of-the-art events space.

We can hold weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries,

conferences, expos and more. The Hornby Club really is a

super versatile venue that can host a variety of events. Our

Events team is dedicated to delivering top class events for

all our clients, whether it’s a kid’s birthday party or a threeday

conference with 500 people in attendance. We really

can do it all,” says Tim.

Life and long-term members are excited to see a new

generation of Club members joining and exploring the

section opportunities. Tim says the sections are at the

heart of Hornby Club and anyone looking for friendship

or a new hobby should explore what sections have to offer.

“We have already welcomed thousands of new members

to the Club since reopening and many are interested

in learning more about section activities. Our sections

include Fishing, Golf, Cards, Travel, Darts, Pool and

more. In fact, this year we are hosting the National Darts

Tournament and the South Island Ladies and Open Pool

Champs,” says Tim.

If you would like to join the Hornby Club, it is $34 per

year and membership comes with a food and beverage

discount. You can join at the reception; it takes less than

five minutes and can be done on the day of your visit or

restaurant booking. Members can bring in guests to dine

at the Club.

New pool fun a hit with

parents and children

Expectant mothers, new parents and young children have been flocking to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre to

enjoy new classes helping them get active and have fun.

The trial of three new weekly pool sessions, Aqua Natal – for expectant mothers, Aqua Fit for Parents

and a Sensory Time for young children, have proved a big hit, Council Aquatics Programmes and Events

Manager Sammy Lawson says. All three rapidly booked out and have been expanded or have plans to

expand.

Aqua Fit for Parents is a first of its kind programme in New Zealand, which she first thought of while

lifting children during a song in an adults and children swim class a few years ago, Ms Lawson says.

“I thought, ‘This is quite a work out, I wonder if there would be interest in doing a work out, but with

babies?’ I asked the parents and they all said, ‘Yes’. It’s more about the parents doing the work out,

while the kids have fun. For half of it the kids are in a floating ring and the other half of it they’re the

weight for the exercises.”

With no suitable pool the idea, along with the long-standing plan to run Aqua Natal – a popular

programme at other pools – had to wait until the Selwyn Aquatic Centre extension when changes to the

programme pool made both possible.

While the first Aqua Fit for Parents session booked out in 10 minutes and Aqua Natal quickly had to be

expanded to meet demand, Sensory Time proved the biggest hit, she says.

The Tuesday morning sessions had to be doubled from one hour to two when 80 people showed up to

the first one.

Ms Lawson says she built on similar classes in other places and her own training in speech and

language therapy to create the play sessions for parents and children under five.

“We’ve gone all out really on different sensory activities, bubbles, mirrors, funnels, lights, things that

move, with a teacher there to support.”

Sensory Times 9–11am Tuesdays,

Aqua Natal 6.15–7pm Tuesdays

Aqua Fit for Parents 9.30–10.30am Thursday

For more information or to enquire about booking call 03 347 2734.

Extra parking at

Foster Park

Temporary parking has been installed at Foster

Park while construction of a new car park is

completed.

Work is ongoing to build a new car park to

replace the former gravel car park on the eastern

edge of the park off Broadlands Drive.

The new asphalt car park will have 213 car parks,

a kiss-and-go area and new footpaths, along with

landscaping, lighting and fencing and is due to

open in early June, following delays due to supply

chain shortages.

In the meantime, the Council has also made

temporary car parking available on Saturdays

during the month of May at the northern end of

the new car park.

Rolleston College has also made their carpark

available, except on the 21 May when the college

needs the park for their events.

This parking is in addition to the Selwyn Sports

Centre car parking off Broadlands Drive and the

car parking at the southern end of Foster Park off

Dynes Road.

The Council is encouraging people to also

consider other options, such as cycling or walking

if you live close by, or carpooling. Or to consider

parking at nearby streets and walk from there.

New partnership to develop

plans for urban growth

Selwyn residents will have a say on urban growth plans for the

greater Christchurch region next year under a strengthened

partnership between mana whenua, local and central government.

Minister of Housing Hon Megan Woods, Minister of Local

Government Hon Nanaia Mahuta, and members of the existing

Greater Christchurch Partnership including Selwyn District Counci,

have established an Urban Growth Partnership for Greater

Christchurch – the Whakawhanake Kāinga Committee. The new

committee brings central government into the existing partnership

to add its support to planning for the region.

The Committee met earlier this month and agreed on the next steps

for its first project – the development of a joint Greater Christchurch

Spatial Plan, which will integrate with work already under way on

an Indicative Business Case for high capacity and frequency public

transport (Mass Rapid Transit).

Residents will be asked for feedback early next year (2023) on a

draft of the Spatial Plan which sets out how Greater Christchurch will

develop to accommodate a larger population and respond to other

challenges including housing affordability and reducing emissions.

The Mass Rapid Transit investigations for Greater Christchurch will

initially focus on the Riccarton and Papanui corridors and will also

explore the expansion of the system to the Selwyn and Waimakariri

Districts, as well as different scenarios, such as heavy rail. Greater

Christchurch has among the highest dependency on private motor

vehicle use of the urban areas in New Zealand.

The Committee is being progressed as part of the Government’s

Urban Growth Agenda to improve alignment and coordination

between central and local government and mana whenua in New

Zealand’s high growth urban areas.

Minister of Housing, Hon Megan Woods, says that major change is

ahead regarding urban development throughout the country.

Its focus will be on decarbonising the transport system, increasing

resilience to natural hazards and the effects of climate change,

accelerating the provision of quality, affordable housing, improving

access to employment, education and services.

POWER: Lincoln’s Gustav Robertson stops Michael Brankin in his tracks. Right: Toby Kars scores for Darfield.

Win against Lincoln puts Darfield

in good position as play-offs loom

• By Tatiana Gibbs

DARFIELD HAS found good

form in the lead up to play-offs

with back-to-back wins in the

Luisetti Seeds combined division

one competition, beating Lincoln

37-25 on Saturday and moving

into pool A’s second spot.

Lincoln lost second fiveeighths

Brad Mavor to a yellow

card in the final 10min of the

opening half – ruled intentionally

offside while defending

within 5m of the goal line, which

opened room for Darfield to

score twice against just 14 men.

It was a 10-point difference

that ought to be the nail in the

home side’s coffin, but Lincoln

coach Bevan Sisson said Darfield

simply outplayed them on the

day.

“Credit to Darfield, they made

minimal mistakes and fed off

ours really well. When we made

a mistake, they made us pay and

they didn’t give us any easy ball,”

Sisson said.

Darfield centre Toby Kars

scored the first try of the match

in the 12th minute from a fivemetre

scrum after lock Tim

Wright was held up over the line

to give his side a 10-3 lead after

both teams had traded penalty

goals in the first 10min.

Lincoln applied the pressure

back, forcing Darfield to make

an error inside their own 22

to hand Lincoln possession.

Darfield conceded a penalty

and crumbled against Lincoln’s

forwards who ploughed through

a 5m scrum to score.

“I haven’t seen a good push

over scrum try for years,”

Lincoln club captain Andrew

Clayton said. “It was bloody

good – old school.”

The converted try and a penalty

goal gave Lincoln a 13-10

lead.

But that was short-lived as

Darfield took advantage of a 14-

man Lincoln with tries to hooker

SEARCHING: Brad Mavor tries to escape the grip of Samuel Groundwater. Right: John Jebson catches the ball before

Sam Cottam in the lineout.

CAUGHT: Jared Kars goes in to tackle Ben Sisson.

Greg Dunshea and wing Jared

Kars to put the visitors ahead 20-

13 at halftime.

Darfield conceded an early

second half try but dug deep

with the sun in their eyes to control

the rest of the match, tries

to second five-eighths Richard

Catherwood and first fiveeighths

Harrison Groundwater

proving vital.

Said Catherwood: “We let

them back in with an early

mistake straight after half-time,

but we absorbed that pressure

and took our chances when we

could.”

The loss sees Lincoln now in

‘I haven’t seen a good push

over scrum try for years.

It was bloody good – old

school.’

– Lincoln club captain

Andrew Clayton

third equal with Methven.

Said Sisson: “I thought we

easily could have got there in the

end, we got within a couple of

points with about 10 to go but

again (we) made mistakes and

they fed off it”.

In other matches, the tops of

pool A and B were shuffled with

one round robin remaining.

Southbridge’s 32-21 win over

Methven put them in the leading

pool A spot and now face

Lincoln in their must-win game

on Saturday.

“We improved our defence

after a few learnings from (last

week’s) Darfield game and one

week made a big difference for us

on that side,” Southbridge coach

Tom Turner said.

“There’s a lot on the line next

week against us.”

Pool B leaders Waihora fronted

the bye on Saturday’s combined

country round and were overtaken

by Celtic and Glenmark

Cheviot both recording wins, but

thrashed Hornby in an Ellesmere

sub union round 54-5.

Prebbleton started rebuilding

much needed form with a

31-24 win over Kaiapoi, ahead

of Saturday’s must win match

against Glenmark Cheviot in

Omihi.

Said Prebbleton club president

Jeromy Knowler: “Two teams

were just trying so hard, but we

had a few lucky breaks, things

went our way and we’re starting

to get a bit of our game back

together.”

Springston piled on points

with a 39-7 win over Rakaia

in preparation for Saturday’s

playoff decider against Southern,

and Rolleston were victims to a

second half bullying by Celtic,

losing 15-53 following a closer

half-time score of 5-17.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

Open Day a chance to

explore new directions

For anyone contemplating

their future in the workforce,

Ara Institute of Canterbury’s

Open Day is a great

opportunity to find inspiration

and start making plans.

With more than 150 fulltime,

part-time and distance

study options on offer at Ara,

there’s potentially something

to suit everyone, from school

leavers and career changers

through to individuals seeking

to return to the workforce or those wanting

to gain more skills in their current line of

work. Options range from non-assessed

short courses through to postgraduate

diplomas and Master’s qualifications.

The event takes place on Thursday 9 June

from 3pm to 6pm at four Ara campuses:

City, Woolston, Manawa and Timaru.

The City and Timaru campuses will offer

information on all study options, while

Woolston will be the focus of trades

training and Manawa is the place to go to

see where Ara’s health-related degrees and

diplomas are taught.

Tutors and representatives from all

subject areas will be on hand to provide

information and answer questions about

study options. There will also be several

information sessions held throughout the

afternoon regarding specific study options

and enrolments can be made on the day.

Student Support staff will also be

available to talk about scholarships and

other financial assistance, learning support,

targeted support for Māori and Pacific

students and students with disabilities,

accommodation, childcare, student clubs

and more.

Campus tours are always a popular

feature of Ara’s open days. The tours explore

classrooms, workshops and learning

facilities as well as student amenities like

libraries, study spaces, cafes and gyms. At

the City campus you can also join a tour

of Otautahi House to see the modern,

apartment-style student accommodation

located just across the street from the

campus.

Study can be a big commitment – not just

for students but also for the whole whānau,

so potential students are invited to bring

parents, partners and friends along so they

can understand what’s involved and know

what support services are available.

Ara’s Open Day takes place on Thursday

9 June at the City, Woolston, Manawa and

Timaru campuses from 3pm to 6pm. A

free shuttle will operate between the City

and Manawa campuses. Further details

are available at ara.ac.nz.

Technology

Some of the highlights in our technology

area include:

• Robotics;

• 3D Printing;

• EPro8 Challenge;

• Fashion Design and Make.

Technology is a favourite area for many

students due to the ‘hands-on’ problem

solving approach to learning.

Music

Music is taught as part of the

performing arts curriculum in

all classrooms however, extra

opportunities are available

for students to learn a wide

variety of music.

This year, our students have

been learning the Guitar,

Piano, Violin, Drums, Flute,

Brass, singing in the Choir

and playing in the Orchestra.

Sports/Hākinakina

Apart from the regular physical education

programmes within the classrooms

there are many other sports offered at

Kirkwood. Some of the sports played

are Netball, Football, Cross Country,

Swimming, Rugby, Basketball, Water

polo, Korfball, Mountain Biking, Touch

Rugby, Tchoukball and Rugby League.

Extension Groups, Competitions and Events

Our students have many opportunities to participate in various competitions and events offered

at Kirkwood.

These include:

• University of Canterbury

Academic Competitions;

• Cantamath;

• Canterbury-Westland

Science Fair;

Awards

• Science Badges;

• Otago Problem Solving;

• Art Cup;

• Kids’ Lit Quiz;

• Orchestra;

• Choir;

• Leadership Opportunities;

• House Captains;

• School Production;

• School Council.

We value and encourage personal excellence which is recognised with our ‘Blues’ Awards system.

2023 Enrolments

As Kirkwood Intermediate School now has a school zone, we are encouraging all applications,

including those out-of-zone applications, to be in before 31 August 2022 for the 2023 school

year.

We intend to hold Open Day sessions this year by appointment for various dates in July and

August. This is instead of our traditional Open Day/Night.

Please visit our Kirkwood Intermediate School website for further details.

Thank you for

helping your

community

Fall Zones

To all of you who have had your trees

trimmed before they became a

problem, thank you for keeping all the

farms working and families in your

community warm, happy and healthy.

We know it can be a hassle, but tree branches touching the

powerlines are one of the main causes of power cuts. So, you can

be proud of the fact that you kept the local cowsheds milking,

water pumps pumping and sheep shearers shearing. And if it’s

still on your to-do list, now’s the time to do it, as winter sets in.

You’re our priority.

Notice and Growth limit zones

B

A

Power line voltage A. Growth limit zone B. Notice zone

66,000 volts 4.0m 5.0m

33,000 volts 2.5m 3.5m

11,000 volts 1.6m 2.6m

400/230 volts 0.5m 1.5m

We’re not exaggerating.

On our network, 10-20% of all unplanned power outages are

caused by trees — including vegetation — coming into contact

with power lines. Other than this, fire damage to property from

branches sparking in dry conditions and serious injury from

electrocution from contact with trees touching power lines are

also possible consequences of not maintaining your trees.

How close is too close?

While most damage is caused by trees falling on power lines,

significant risk exists from trees merely touching them. This risk

increases the higher the voltage of the power line.

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees

and power lines, as defined in the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003, are outlined in the diagrams above.

All vegetation should be kept out of the growth limit zone and

preferably the notice zone.

Sometimes it may not be practical to have a tree trimmed at the

rate at which it grows and unfortunately, this means it may need

to be removed. Other situations may require trees to be removed,

most commonly when they are at a high risk of falling due to

disease or adverse weather events.

Where do I start?

Before you begin, remember to keep yourself, and those around

you, safe. We recognise that not everyone is experienced in tree

trimming and are happy to advise you on what to do. We can arrange

for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your expense, however

we recommend you hire professionals to safely carry out the work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within four

metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from

Orion before you start. As a tree owner, you may be liable for any

damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

Will I be fined if I don’t comply?

If a cut or trim notice is given to you and you fail to have the tree

trimmed and/or advise us of the time and location of the trim

without a reasonable excuse, this is an offence. This will make you

liable for a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues,

you will be liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every

day or part day during which the offence continues.

More info can be found on our website and if

you have any questions or notice any trees

touching power lines in your area, please call

us on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

oriongroup.co.nz

Orion operates, and maintains, the electricity distribution

network that provides power to central Canterbury.

We are always here to help if you have any questions

or concerns about the network.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology

(insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces

a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His

Convolvulus home to

larvae of leaf-miner moth

THE BINDWEED

Convolvulus is a hideous

weed that we are battling

with at home in our vege

garden as well as at Mahoe

Reserve.

I have often observed

leaf miner damage

on leaves and one day

photographed a caterpillar

on Convolvulus at home.

Landcare Research

expert lepidopterist (entomologist

who studies

moths and butterflies)

Robert Hoare identified

my photo on iNaturalist as

most likely Bedellia somnulentella,

the morning

glory leaf-miner or sweet

potato leaf-miner.

Two other photos of

small, 4mm long moths

attracted to our front door

light were also identified as

Bedellia on iNaturalist.

The species has a worldwide

distribution including

Asia, Africa, North

America, Europe and

Oceania. The moths have a

wingspan of 8-10mm and

are a bland brown colour

with random dark spots

along their sides.

The moths sit upright

on their behind like a dog,

have stripey antennae almost

as long as their body

and a spiky, punk-like

hairstyle.

Eggs are usually laid

on the underside of

Convolvulus or Calystegia

leaves beside the midribs,

veins or at the base of

leaf blades. Young larvae

burrow into the leaf and

forage leaving wiggly

mines and frass (insect

poo), eventually making

windows in leaves. Larvae

reach 5.5mm in length

a pink tinge or blotches

along the sides.

Unfortunately, this

moth species isn’t efficient

enough to wipe out our

we need some of the large

PETS & PAWS

Fostering makes

a difference

If your pet has recently passed away

and you’re feeling a bit lost and alone but

not ready to commit to another animal,

then consider becoming an animal foster

parent.

Animal foster parents offer temporary

homes to animals that come into shelters

and need extra one-on-one care before

they can be adopted into their forever

homes.

These animals may need medical care

or help to improve their behaviour. For

some, they need to gain confidence in

humans again and usually need extra

hugs and attention.

Generally, the animal shelter will likely

cover all the costs of veterinary care,

food, bedding and toys. They may also

give additional training for animals with

special needs.

If fostering interests you, visit

www.spca.nz to find out about

becoming a foster parent.

shelters that rely on

foster parents include

LANDSCAPING IS a wonderful

pastime enjoyed by many.

It provides a natural beauty

and needs no ornaments or other

attractive items to help achieve its

magnificence.

What it does need, however, is

a little tender loving care from

you and great ideas to keep the

landscape design ever changing

and up to date.

Landscape design is an art that

not only gives you the freedom to

express yourself, but also makes

your home more beautiful and

inviting.

There are many methods of

CORIANDER IS a love it or hate

it type of plant, it divides people.

It can also be quite a tricky herb

to grow as it loves to bolt (head

to seed), which probably doesn’t

help its reputation with its detractors.

Here are some tips for successful

coriander growing.

Firstly, plant it now. While you

can grow coriander for most of

the year, during autumn and

winter when the weather is cooler,

is the perfect time to plant –

especially if you find it difficult

to grow. The steady, cool weather

will prevent it from bolting.

landscape design to explore. You

can trim your hedges or bushes

in a decorative manner. For

instance, you may want to cut

every other hedge a foot shorter

than the next to produce a rolling

effect.

You could also put a large

decorative fountain in the middle

of your yard. This is a costly

option but, if you can afford it,

looks gorgeous.

If you are considering

landscape design, or have already

dabbled in it a bit, you know the

importance of working with an

experienced landscaper.

Coriander – love it or hate it

Coriander will grow well in a

pot or in the garden. But if you

do plant in a pot make sure it’s a

deep one and pour in some good

quality potting mix.

If you’re growing in the garden,

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Enjoy landscaping

at this time of the year look for

somewhere with full sun. Coriander

doesn’t like damp or humid

conditions. Next ensure the soil

is aerated and free-draining by

digging over the soil and even dig

in some potting mix or compost if

required.

Next, mound up the soil and

plant a seedling on top – this

will help ensure the soil is freedraining.

Give it a water and then

regularly water it in the morning.

This will allow the water to dry

off during the day and prevent

disease.

Native trees are a

long-term investment

NOW IS THE time to plant

native trees and shrubs.

Many people think natives can

only be grown when you have

lots of space. But there are lots

of low growing native plants that

look lovely in a smaller garden

– such as pūrei (carex), hibiscus

and hebe. Other native plants

such as kōhūhū (pittosporum

tenuifoliam) and akeake can

make nice shelter belts or hedges.

You can even plant tī kouka

(cabbage tree) and kānuka plants

into pots and placed them at the

entrance to your property. Pots

can restrict the roots of trees and

in a way create a ‘bonsai’ effect

so they don’t grow very tall. Bees

like kānuka, which is great for

pollinating vegetable gardens.

If you’re thinking about planting

natives, or adding to your

existing native garden, get on to

it now. The weather has cooled

off but isn’t too wet, which makes

it the perfect time to plant trees

and shrubs. And while most of

the natives are very hardy, it’s

good to get them in the ground

and established before frosts kick

in.

Once you’ve got your plants,

dig a hole and bury each plant to

the top of its root ball. Then water

in gently. If you don’t get any

rain after planting, water every

two or three days.

It’s also a good idea to keep the

immediate area surrounding the

plants weed free for a while as

the plants won’t be able to outgrow

any weeds at this early stage

of their life.

Natives are a long-term

investment in your garden and

depending on the variety you

grow could take between months

and years to become fully grown.

But they’re well worth the wait.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Anything mechanical at

Hororata’s annual swap meet

The Hororata Mechanical Swap Meet has been taken place since

2010 and is a well-known and eagerly anticipated event. Locals John

and Dave started the event after getting fed up with searching for

mechanical parts amongst household goods at swap meets; they had a

vision of a dedicated mechanical event so decided to create their own.

However, since 2020 COVID-19, this event has been postponed three

times, leaving many people disappointed!

“Hororata was not the only swap meet to be affected by COVID, with

most of these events being cancelled. This has been hard on the swap

meet community, who just love coming together at these events,” says

Hororata Community Trust event manager Cindy Driscoll.

“We have had many emails and messages from people asking when

the Hororata meet would be on again; this has really encouraged the

Community Trust and volunteers to make it happen, not once but

twice in 2022.”

The first event will be on Saturday 28 May, and then it will run again

on its regular date on 24 September 2022.

The event attracts around 50 sellers and 500 – 800 visitors looking

to trade, swap, sell or buy any mechanical related items. It is one of the

few true mechanical swap meets catering for vintage, veteran, classic

cars, motorcycles, parts, tools, farm equipment and mechanical-related

stuff. You won’t find kitchen appliances and toys at this event.

Sites do not need to be pre-booked, and sellers can turn up and

pay $15 on the day. Entry for

buyers is $5 per adult, with

children under 12 years free.

The Hororata Mechanical Swap Meet will be held Saturday 28th May at the Hororata Domain,

with gates opening at 7am. There will be a variety of food and coffee vendors at the Domain.

Get the best out of your tyres

With a reputation for knowledgeable,

reliable service and competitive deals on

tyres and other products, KATS Rolleston

is your local one-stop shop. Having a

mechanical workshop, they are able to

provide full mechanical repairs and a

range of services, including balancing and

alignments, suspension lifts and lowering,

and warrants of fitness.

KATS stocks a comprehensive range of

4WD and passenger tyres for cars and

light trucks. Buying in bulk means they

offer competitive pricing on tyres and

mag wheels with the savings passed onto

their customers. So, for the various cars

out there, KATS has the tyres to suit your

budget and driving style, where they will

match any price. If you are looking for

high-performance tyres, then KATS has

the likes of Michelin, Pirelli, Continental,

Falken, GT Radial and Cooper on hand.

There are full guarantees on their tyres,

and customers buying tyres from them

get free rotation and balancing for the life

of the tyres with contact made every 6–12

months to arrange a tyre check-up.

Fuel prices are skyrocketing and aren’t

looking to reduce any time soon. One

way to make your dollar go further is to

ensure your tyres are the most beneficial

for fuel economy. Phil, the owneroperator

of KATS Rolleston, with over

30 years of industry experience, with a

background in tyres, wheel alignments

and suspension repairs, advises that

many of the tyres sold at KATS are ‘silica

compound fuel efficient tyres’. These tyres

are designed to be more fuel efficient.

Another service provided at KATS is

wheel alignment which can also affect

fuel economy. A wheel alignment is a

good idea after you have new tyres or

mag wheels put on your vehicle. The

experienced technicians at KATS will

align your wheels to ensure your tyres do

not experience unnecessary edge wear,

and your car will drive straight and not

veer to one side.

With the start of winter only days away,

Phil recommends, “Motorists should

check the vehicle’s tyres, antifreeze and

make sure the car has a current warrant of

fitness, coming into winter to make sure

it’s safe.”

For full mechanical service with

an extensive range of tyres and mag

wheels at affordable prices, call Phil

and the team on (03) 347 0929, or visit

KATS Rolleston at 44 Hoskyns Road,

Rolleston from 8.00–5:00pm every

weekday and Saturday 8–12pm.

Kona N provides the grin factor

THERE’S NO shortage of smallto-medium

sport utility vehicles in

today’s market.

However, if you want something

that definitely represents the sport

in that description, then you’ll

have to look hard. Sure, some of

the premium brands have feisty

wagons and SUVs, but they also

have premium prices.

Enter Hyundai’s Kona, it’s

now part of the N programme

of performance vehicles, and it

is a brute in terms of looks and

performance.

It’s an interesting move from

Hyundai, many Kona buyers are

lured by its clean, green image. You

can get Kona from fully electric

to petrol in several forms. In total

there are 10 Kona variants and

given that, it’s become a popular

model in the mid-size SUV

segment.

The Kona N is something

else, though, and it sits on a par

pricewise with the EV entry model

at around $70K, but the two are

chalk and cheese in terms of

concept.

Hyundai’s N series of cars, not be

confused with the tamer N-line, are

developed for speed, acceleration

and handling, they are engineered

through much development work

at performance facilities such as

South Korea’s Namyang research

and development centre and fettled

through many laps at Germany’s

brutal Nürburgring race track.

It was only weeks ago that I

evaluated Hyundai’s stroppy i30N

hatchback, a car that I delighted

in with its power and handling, it

is a car that constantly tantalises

with its high boost turbocharged

2-litre engine, and although it’s

only a front-wheel-drive model

it competes well with those great

hot hatchbacks that are legendary

in that segment. Well, the Kona

N shares the same driveline as the

i30N, even to the point where it

drives out the front wheels only.

Just like the i30N, the Kona N’s

four-cylinder engine develops

206kW and 392Nm, maximum

power is realised comparatively low

at just 5500rpm, although it will

pull happily to almost 7000rpm,

but it’s the area of maximum

torque that is most interesting.

It is realised all of the way from

1950rpm to 5600rpm, which when

you diagnose all of the figures there

is a lot of mid-range pull that never

wilts.

Unlike the I30N, the Kona N

doesn’t get a manual gearbox

option. It shares the dual clutch

system which you treat just like an

automatic transmission, there are

simply just two pedals – accelerator

and brake.

I like DCT gearboxes, they have

quick, sharp shifts that in the Kona

N’s case can be made manually by

the gearshift lever itself or through

steering wheel-mounted paddles.

In terms of how all this gels

is quite remarkable, the Kona N

is a deliberate sports car and it

has all the equipment to usher in

and contain movement. Take the

brakes, for example, they are huge

and have friction compounds that

FEISTY: Huge rear wing sits above the tailgate.

HYUNDAI KONA N: Race-track potential thanks to high performance engine and brakes.

can take prolonged use. Hyundai

even encourage track time in

the Kona N, there are features

to support that – an on-screen

stopwatch and a shifting pattern

that recognises dynamic driving,

activating automatically by

selecting the appropriate gear, and

shift timing that provides optimal

performance.

One of the systems that is quite

quirky is what Hyundai label

N grin shift, it works alongside

the standard N buttons which

in themselves provide a turbo

overboost function lifting power

an extra 7kW. The NGS button

releases maximum power of

the engine and transmission for

20sec, according to Hyundai,

performance that is sure to bring

a grin to the driver’s face. When

the button is pushed, a countdown

begins on the instrument cluster

showing the remaining seconds.

There is also a power shift

feature, it engages when the car

accelerates with more than 90 per

cent of throttle, thereby mitigating

any reduction in torque by using

upshifts to deliver maximum

power to the wheels. This initiates

a type of push feel through the

driveline.

With all of these systems

available there’s no doubt the Kona

N becomes an exciting car to drive,

it is truly a car that likes to have

its freedom. It hunts at open road

speed and it definitely wants to

deliver. Of course, I had to drive

within the legal requirements but

• Price – Hyundai Kona N,

$69,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4215mm; width, 1800mm;

height, 1565mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1998cc, 206kW,

392Nm, eight-speed DCT

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 5.5sec

• Fuel usage – 8l/100km

I can report it is an absolute blast

getting to 100km/h, that time

takes around 5.5sec. According

to overseas reports it will also fly

through a highway overtake –

80-120km/h – in 3.5sec. On the

subject of figures, Hyundai also

claims a 240km/h top speed.

For me, though, the Kona N was

more about its handling prowess.

Just like the i30N, the suspension

has been engineered to deliver

stable, controlled yet exciting

cornering ability.

Providing the grip in the first

instance are wonderful Pirelli

PZero tyres (235/40 x 19in), they

steer beautifully and provide

solid feedback. The Kona N’s fully

independent suspension

is electronically adjustable,

depending on what drive mode

is selected, but you can feel the

dampers tighten and become

firmer in N mode, the car squats

and sits tidily in the rear as

gravitational load shifts in a corner.

I took the test car west and

presented it with some of

the trickiest corners on the

Canterbury Plains, it fair blasts

between corners and attacks

the bends with precision and

accuracy, turn-in is decisive and

body balance uncannily stable for

a vehicle that sits relatively high at

well over 1.5m.

If you also like the feel of

pressure when the brakes are

activated firmly, then they won’t

disappoint, retardation is decisive.

The Kona N is a true

performance model and I guess

that is why it commands a $69,990

price tag.

However, for that money you

get a lot of kit – alcantara trim,

electrically-adjustable and heated/

cooled front seats, heated steering

wheel, satellite navigation, headup

display, smart cruise control,

keyless entry and ignition and a

host of clever safety features.

You are also getting many cars

all in one package, it’s an SUV for

sure, but it’s also a handy sports

wagon. Money depending, I’d be

very interested in the Kona N as I

head towards retirement, it is a fun

car and one that provides the grin

factor that Hyundai is so keen to

develop.

Hyundai is also broadening

the N concept, the Kona N

sits alongside the desirable hot

hatchback i30N, and it’s recently

been joined by the i20N. I certainly

hope I get to sample the latter.

2022 OTIRA - TAIPO POSSUM CONTROL OPERATION

Vector Free Marlborough Limited (VFML) wishes to advise the public of its intention to

aerially apply the toxin Sodium fluoroacetate (1080) to parts of the Westland, South

Westland Alps and Westcoast Divide TMA’s for the purpose of controlling possums. The

Otira – Taipo operation is being carried out on behalf of OSPRI as part of its TBfree New

Zealand programme, which aims to eradicate bovine tuberculosis from wildlife vectors that

pose a risk to farmed cattle herds in downstream areas.

Description of Area

The Otira – Taipo permission area takes in approximately 30,930 hectares of the Otira and

Taipo catchments. The boundary of the permission area extends from the SH73 bridge

over Big Wainihinihi River to Aickens corner near the confluence of the Otira and Taramakau

rivers, then follows Aicken Ridge upstream toward Goat Pass at the head of the Deception

Valley. From Goat Pass it extends west along the snowline of the Southern Alps, crosses

SH73 at the summit of Arthur’s Pass and continues west into the headwaters of the Taipo

catchment. From the Taipo catchment it follows the Campbell Range in a northerly direction,

thence along Razorback Ridge to Big Wainihinhi River. Most land in the permission area

is administered by the Department of Conservation but several small tracts of land held by

various private and institutional owners are also included. The nearest settlement is Otira

Village which is excluded from the operation. A detailed map may be obtained from VFML

as per contact details below.

Commencement Date

Control is scheduled to commence from 1 June 2022, with the aerial application of nontoxic

cereal pre-feed pellets. This will be followed approximately 7-10 days later by the

aerial application of bait containing biodegradable sodium fluoroacetate (1080). All work

is weather dependent, and commencement may be later than indicated. In the event of an

extended delay, further notices will be placed to advise the public.

Bait Description

• Pre-feed - Non-toxic cereal-based pellet, approximately 16mm long and cinnamonlured.

Prefeed for this operation will be dyed green as part of a suite of measures to

minimise risk to kea.

• Toxic bait - Cereal-based pellet, approximately 20mm long, cinnamon- lured and dyed

green with a toxic loading of 0.15% Sodium fluoroacetate (1080).

Note, hand-laid 1080 may be used for supplemental ground-based control in areas unsuited

for aerial application.

Precautions

The public are reminded of the danger that toxic baits and possum carcasses pose,

particularly to children and dogs.

• DO NOT TOUCH OR EAT BAITS

• Children must be kept under strict supervision in the control area

• Dogs must be kept under strict control at all times and not have access to, or be taken

into, the control area, as they are particularly susceptible to harm from contact with

toxic baits and poisoned carcasses. The risk that poisoned carcasses pose to dogs

may extend downstream of the control area.

• Toxin warning signs will be installed at main public entry points and the public are

reminded that it is an offence to remove this warning signage. Please follow the

instructions on the signs.

• Game animals should not be sold or taken for eating from within or adjacent to this

area until it is declared clear of pesticides.

If you suspect poisoning

Contact your local hospital, or dial 111

National Poisons Centre 0800 POISON - 0800 764 766

In the case of a domestic animal being poisoned, contact a local veterinarian

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Modern living for any site

Building company Fraemohs began

building Scandinavian style wooden homes

in Christchurch in 1968 led by Monni

Fraemohs.

An engineering immigrant from

Denmark, his dream was to use New

Zealand’s abundant renewable timber

resources to build homes that were

innovative and sustainable.

“We aren’t the biggest building company

but we have plenty of happy stories from our

customers who love living in a Fraemohs

home,” says sales consultant Carl Watson.

Their Rolleston show home is part of

the Fraemohs First range and provides

an affordable three-bedroom home. The

Otamatea design plan can be mirrored to

suit a site of any orientation with an option

of scissor trusses in the living room to add

impact.

This 183m 2 home has two spacious

bedrooms with built in storage in addition

to the master with its walk-in robe and

ensuite. The sleeping areas are separated

from the living rooms.

The roomy media room is inviting with

its cosy dark walls as a contrast to the

remainder of the home which features

neutral walls and carpet.

A walk-in pantry provides added space to

the roomy kitchen with its breakfast bar and

there’s plenty of room for a dining table of

any size.

The media room, living area and master

bedroom all open out to a paved area

offering all year-round entertainment areas
