CAUGHT ON CAMERA<br />

Youth crime increases<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

TWO TEENAGERS have been<br />

caught on camera tagging<br />

a wall at Rolleston in broad<br />

daylight – as concern grows<br />

about increasing youth crime in<br />

the district.<br />

A Rolleston Community<br />

Group member on Facebook<br />

uploaded a photo of the offenders<br />

near Rolleston Reserve, who<br />

police said were <strong>14</strong>.<br />

Offenders aged <strong>14</strong> had also<br />

been responsible for the theft of<br />

a vehicle and other vehicles being<br />

broken into in the Prebbleton<br />

area at the weekend.<br />

It follows the aggravated robbery<br />

of the Prebbleton Dairy last<br />

week, where the offenders were<br />

aged between 10 and <strong>14</strong>. Police<br />

have also identified them.<br />

Police apprehended five<br />

joyriding youths who allegedly<br />

dumped a stolen car and stole<br />

another one in Prebbleton two<br />

days prior. One of them is also<br />

believed to be responsible for<br />

leaving obscene graffiti on a<br />

family home on the street.<br />

Police say there has been an<br />

escalation in the district in<br />

the level of offending and<br />

violence perpetrated by ever<br />

TAGGERS: This picture was posted to the Rolleston<br />

Community Group on Facebook on Sunday last week.<br />

Right – joyriding youths stealing cars are believed to<br />

be responsible for spray-painting graffiti onto this<br />

Prebbleton home.<br />

younger offenders.<br />

“Social media platforms are<br />

being used to sensationalise<br />

and glorify ram-raids, serious<br />

assaults and other criminal and<br />

anti-social behaviour amongst<br />

our young people. <strong>Selwyn</strong> is<br />

not exempt from this,” said<br />

the district’s police crime<br />

prevention manager Senior<br />

Sergeant Anna Lloyd.<br />

10-year-old<br />

involved<br />

in dairy<br />

robbery<br />

• By Barry Clarke<br />

DAIRY OWNER Sangeet Mehta<br />

is at his wits end after another<br />

raid on his business – the latest<br />

involving a boy aged 10.<br />

Four young people, one armed<br />

with a spanner, burst into the<br />

shop in Springs Rd, Prebbleton,<br />

just after 7pm on Monday last<br />

week. Police say they were aged<br />

between 10 and <strong>14</strong>.<br />

His wife Falguni, who was alone<br />

in the shop, managed to foil being<br />

hit with the spanner when she<br />

pushed a Covid screen in front of<br />

her.<br />

It was the fourth time the<br />

dairy has either been ram-raided,<br />

robbed or broken into in recent<br />

months.<br />

Mehta was visiting a patient at<br />

Christchurch Hospital when the<br />

robbery happened.<br />

His distraught wife, who was<br />

also concerned about their toddler<br />

at the back of the dairy where they<br />

live, phoned him to let him know<br />

she had been robbed.<br />

“They were in a silver Toyota<br />

Aqua. They parked outside for a<br />

minute or so, then they drove off<br />

and slowly drove past (to see if the<br />

shop had other customers), then<br />

they came inside,” he said.<br />

SANGEET Mehta has every<br />

reason to be an angry man<br />

(page 1).<br />

He was away from his<br />

dairy in Prebbleton when a<br />

group of youngsters – one<br />

aged 10 – raced in and<br />

robbed it, threatening his<br />

wife with a spanner, who<br />

was alone with their toddler.<br />

Youth crime is spiralling<br />

and while the volume is<br />

nothing like in other parts<br />

of New Zealand, the trend is<br />

concerning.<br />

Sangeet wants the system<br />

to be tougher on young offenders.<br />

Whether that is the<br />

right solution is debatable.<br />

Support for fight against subdivision<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

RESIDENTS fighting the<br />

proposed Lincoln South<br />

subdivision are bolstering their<br />

ranks with legal heavyweight,<br />

the Environmental Defence<br />

Society.<br />

The national non-profit society<br />

will be a party to Environment<br />

Court proceedings, supporting<br />

the residents’ group Lincoln<br />

Voice in its appeal against the<br />

district council’s decision to<br />

adopt Plan Change 69.<br />

Lincoln Voice<br />

was established<br />

this year following<br />

the district<br />

council adopting<br />

the PC69 Carter<br />

Denise<br />

Carrick<br />

Group rezoning<br />

application, paving<br />

the way for<br />

the 1710-section<br />

Lincoln South subdivision on<br />

rural land.<br />

Lincoln Voice spokesperson<br />

Denise Carrick said members<br />

of the residents’ group felt it was<br />

a “massive” coup to have the<br />

society agreeing to back their<br />

argument in the court.<br />

“They will be able to take it<br />

a lot further for us, which is<br />

amazing, we are only a tiny community<br />

group,” Carrick said.<br />

Lincoln Voice was continuing<br />

to fundraise through Givealittle,<br />

still having to pay for its own<br />

lawyers and experts. The campaign<br />

has a $150,000 goal and<br />

had reached close to $15,000 by<br />

late last week.<br />

Carrick understood the<br />

Environmental Defence Society<br />

only took on cases of national<br />

importance. The proposed<br />

Lincoln South development was<br />

reflective of towns nationwide<br />

being able to expand into rural<br />

areas due to the new National<br />

Policy Statement – Urban Development.<br />

It was also reflective<br />

of agricultural soils nationwide<br />

lacking protection due to a Government<br />

delay in introducing<br />

the additional new legislation of<br />

the National Policy Statement -<br />

Highly Productive Land.<br />

“There’s a mismatch (between<br />

the two pieces of legislation). I<br />

believe no-one has ever really<br />

challenged it. This will be kind of<br />

groundbreaking,” Carrick said.<br />

The Environmental Defence<br />

Society is a litigation advocacy<br />

group set up to fight for the<br />

environment, with expertise in<br />

law, planning, landscape and<br />

science.<br />

The society has been<br />

advocating for the New Zealand<br />

environment and its finite<br />

resources via policy work and<br />

strategic litigation for more<br />

than 50 years. Its biggest victory<br />

was winning a Supreme Court<br />

battle in 20<strong>14</strong> against New<br />

Zealand King Salmon Company,<br />

considered a landmark case<br />

BATTLE: The<br />

Environmental<br />

Defence Society<br />

has joined<br />

forces with<br />

Lincoln Voice in<br />

opposition to<br />

the proposed<br />

Lincoln South<br />

development.<br />

in reaffirming environmental<br />

management parameters of<br />

coastal landscapes.<br />

The society confirmed it would<br />

be a party to the Environment<br />

Court case of Lincoln Voice versus<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council.<br />

The case is expected to go to<br />

mediation, then onto a hearing if<br />

mediation fails.<br />

A ruling is some time away as<br />

a judicial conference planned<br />

for August was postponed to a<br />

future undetermined date.<br />

Gifts Galore<br />

at Yellow Zebra<br />

Catering from newborns to tweens,<br />

Yellow Zebra is an exciting new<br />

kids gift shop recently opened in<br />

Lincoln with gifts galore on offer.<br />

The owners, Kelly and David<br />

Bennett, held their grand opening<br />

on Saturday, 3rd <strong>September</strong>, with<br />

specials, giveaways and face-painting<br />

at their store located at 3 Vernon<br />

Drive, Lincoln.<br />

Kelly previously spent five years<br />

managing a kid’s gift shop and<br />

understands what gifts people are<br />

looking for. She also has strong<br />

relationships with suppliers to<br />

ensure Yellow Zebra has the right fit<br />

of products.<br />

Kelly says they want to make<br />

shopping easy and advises, “If you<br />

are unsure what to buy, I have great<br />

knowledge to make suggestions for<br />

different ages and budgets.” David<br />

and Kelly realised there was a gap<br />

in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> market for this type<br />

of store stocking quality long lasting<br />

gifts “like they used to be when we<br />

were kids”.<br />

With this knowledge in mind, the<br />

store stocks products that are more<br />

than just toys and focuses on quality<br />

and durability. Kelly confirms,<br />

“Knowing they are going to last is<br />

important to us.” Many items are<br />

educational, including STEM toys<br />

or like the Keel soft toys, and Green<br />

Toys are environmentally friendly<br />

and are made from recycled plastic<br />

bottles. The selection of games will<br />

be increasing to suit older ages.<br />

Kelly and David believe in<br />

supporting locally made products;<br />

they also stock favourites, including<br />

John Deere, Buzzy Bee, National<br />

Geographic, B. Box and Little<br />

Renegade. Gifts range from $2.00<br />

for kids spending pocket money to<br />

special occasion gifts.<br />

The store’s bright yellow and black<br />

zebra signage is colourful and<br />

eye-catching, drawing in shoppers<br />

and children alike. The shop was<br />

purposefully set up with a pramfriendly<br />

layout to ensure moving<br />

around the shop is easy and stressfree,<br />

where you don’t need to worry<br />

about knocking things over.<br />

Yellow Zebra also offers free giftwrapping<br />

on all purchases, and<br />

as Kelly says, “It takes away the<br />

hassle and stress, especially when<br />

you are running late for a birthday<br />

party.” Ordering gifts online via<br />

Yellow Zebra is easy with various<br />

gift selection options available with<br />

delivery New Zealand-wide and the<br />

offer of hand-written messages in<br />

cards.<br />

Take the hassle out of buying<br />

children’s gifts with a wide range of<br />

products at Yellow Zebra you won’t<br />

find in other <strong>Selwyn</strong> gift stores.<br />

With expert knowledge, you will<br />

receive fantastic advice and service,<br />

knowing your gift will bring a big<br />

smile to a young person’s face.<br />

• From page 1<br />

Lloyd appealed to residents to<br />

report any offending, as police<br />

relied heavily on the community.<br />

“Police youth aid officers try<br />

and steer young people back<br />

into better choices by working<br />

alongside their family, but we<br />

can only address what we know<br />

about. If you see something, or<br />

something strikes you as being<br />

out of the ordinary, contact<br />

police on 111 if urgent and<br />

happening now, or 105 if nonurgent,”<br />

she said.<br />

Parents also needed to do<br />

their best to know who their<br />

children were associating with.<br />

“We see good children get<br />

dragged into anti-social behaviour<br />

very quickly when they<br />

begin hanging around in little<br />

gangs and getting into mischief.<br />

The hours of 3-6pm are particularly<br />

important, that is the<br />

time when young people will<br />

congregate together without supervision<br />

and we see increased<br />

reporting of assaults, etcetera,”<br />

Lloyd said.<br />

Many of the offenders came<br />

in from outside the district. The<br />

Prebbleton Dairy robbers were<br />

believed to be a mix of local and<br />

Christchurch youth – one from<br />

as far away as New Brighton<br />

Police had also noticed an increase<br />

in the number of 11- and<br />

12-year-old children vaping,<br />

and an increasing number of<br />

children being stood down from<br />

schools because of this.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Community Patrol<br />

spokesman Errol Wood said the<br />

patrol was doing all it could to<br />

boost numbers as youth crime<br />

increased training up as many<br />

new recruits as possible. There<br />

had been an influx of people<br />

wanting to join.<br />

In addition, a Rolleston community<br />

patrol group, which is<br />

relatively new, would merge<br />

with <strong>Selwyn</strong> Community Patrol,<br />

which is a member of Community<br />

Patrols of New Zealand.<br />

Wood said this would give the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> group even more members.<br />

had raised would go towards a<br />

second patrol vehicle, based at<br />

Rolleston. The current patrol<br />

vehicle is based at Lincoln.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Community Patrol<br />

had about 50 members now,<br />

and he expected by the end of<br />

next year, this would be about<br />

70. Adding each member took<br />

several months, as they had to<br />

be police vetted and undertake<br />

on-the-ground training with<br />

current members.<br />

Wood said there were three<br />

patrol shifts – daytime, evening<br />

to 11pm, and 11pm to 3am<br />

– however, only one shift was<br />

undertaken each day. He expected<br />

the anticipated growth in<br />

numbers could enable two shifts<br />

per day.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> patrol covered a large<br />

area of the district, but having<br />

higher volunteer numbers<br />

would help it do a better job<br />

of keeping police informed of<br />

criminal activity in the area.<br />

“It gives us a chance of spotting<br />

the bad guys. It’s a big area,<br />

we are only in one place at a<br />

time. It improves our chances of<br />

spotting incidents that need to<br />

be recorded,” Wood said.<br />

The patrol had had success<br />

recently, assisting police following<br />

the ram-raid of the Lincoln<br />

Dairy last month. Wood said<br />

patrol members alerted police to<br />

the presence of a suspicious car<br />

believed connected to the crime,<br />

at Tai Tapu.<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton said he<br />

would this week be discussing<br />

with police any issues or trends<br />

officers were facing, and see if<br />

the district council might be<br />

able to offer support.<br />

“I’m in regular contact with<br />

the our police in <strong>Selwyn</strong> who<br />

do a great job in maintaining<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s record as one of the<br />

safes places to live in New<br />

Zealand,” Broughton said.<br />

Call for<br />

judges to<br />

get tougher<br />

• From page 1<br />

The vehicle’s number plate had<br />

been partially covered over. He<br />

believes the same offenders also<br />

robbed a Halswell dairy on Monday.<br />

“One of them (offender) was a tiny<br />

boy, he had no mask on. The others<br />

were covered up. My wife was so<br />

scared.<br />

“They took vapes, lollies . . . It<br />

(robbery) took about 30 seconds.”<br />

Mehta said he would like to get<br />

out of the business, but selling in the<br />

current environment was difficult.<br />

He had no option but to stay open.<br />

“If I shut down, how can I feed my<br />

family. It is not simple for me to do<br />

something else.”<br />

Police had taken away CCTV video<br />

of the robbery in which the youngest<br />

offender was unmasked, but he had<br />

not heard back from them.<br />

The Government and judges<br />

needed to get tougher on youth offenders,<br />

he said.<br />

He had been called to a family<br />

group conference next week where<br />

he will meet one of the offenders involved<br />

in a ram raid on his dairy – a<br />

13-year-old. The teenager’s family<br />

will also be there.<br />

Mehta said he would tell the<br />

teenager of the fear his young family<br />

now endured, of not being able to<br />

sleep worrying about the next ram<br />

raid, and the pressure it was putting<br />

on their mental health.<br />

“Capital gain isn’t the only box this place ticks.<br />

It’s well built. A lot of places are el cheapo,<br />

but the joinery here is of good quality,<br />

and the rooms are a good size.”<br />

RESIDENTS HAVE until<br />

Friday to have their say on<br />

new medium density rules and<br />

how they will apply in <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

District.<br />

New legislation requires<br />

five of the largest urban environments<br />

in New Zealand<br />

– including parts of <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

– to enable an increase in<br />

housing supply, through a new<br />

Medium Density Residential<br />

Zone in relevant areas.<br />

Said district council group<br />

manager development and<br />

growth Tim Harris: “While<br />

changes set out by the Government<br />

to encourage housing<br />

supply are not optional, people<br />

have the chance to shape the<br />

details of what is affected.<br />

“People can make a submission<br />

about the new land that is<br />

proposed to be rezoned from<br />

rural to residential. There are<br />

also places that the council<br />

can deem inappropriate to<br />

have the new medium density<br />

standards applied to. This<br />

includes protecting significant<br />

infrastructure or the history,<br />

cultural or ecological value of<br />

a place.”<br />

The new medium density<br />

rules will allow for<br />

more housing and at greater<br />

heights in current residential<br />

areas in Rolleston, Lincoln<br />

and Prebbleton. Within these<br />

areas, landowners will be able<br />

to build up to three buildings<br />

at a maximum of three storeys<br />

high without requiring a<br />

resource consent.<br />

A free Friend of Submitter<br />

service is available, provided<br />

by the Ministry for the Environment,<br />

to support people<br />

in the process of making a<br />

submission.<br />

OUR PEOPLE – ALASTAIR FRIZZELL 13<br />

Electronics inventor too busy to retire<br />

Electronics inventor<br />

Alastair Frizzell of<br />

Kirwee has gone from<br />

making amplifiers for<br />

his music-fan friends<br />

at university, to being<br />

a leading developer<br />

of agricultural solarpowered<br />

technology.<br />

He is also learning to<br />

play the trombone. The<br />

72-year-old spoke to<br />

Susan Sandys<br />

Tell me a bit about yourself.<br />

I was brought up in Kirwee on<br />

a dryland mixed cropping farm.<br />

I went to Lincoln University<br />

in the 1970s, did an ag science<br />

degree. I did my OE, two-anda-half<br />

years overseas touring<br />

round Europe and Britain and<br />

working on farms in the United<br />

Kingdom. I came back onto the<br />

home place, farmed that through<br />

the droughts and the Roger<br />

Douglas years.<br />

Was it hard farming through<br />

the droughts and recession of<br />

the 1980s?<br />

I remember one year during<br />

that period we had no equity,<br />

basically no value left in the<br />

farm. Our bank manager said<br />

at the time: ‘If you behave<br />

yourself and do everything you<br />

can, you will come through it.’<br />

You don’t buy motor vehicles,<br />

you don’t go on holidays at all,<br />

you just don’t spend money<br />

full stop. You do things like<br />

you have one battery for two or<br />

three vehicles, and you shift the<br />

batteries around from vehicle to<br />

vehicle.<br />

Are you still farming the<br />

family property today?<br />

About 20 years ago, the<br />

neighbouring farm came up for<br />

sale. If we bought it, we would<br />

have to go into dairying to<br />

justify the extra expense. We<br />

didn’t really want to do that. The<br />

person who bought it went into<br />

dairying and approached us to<br />

see if we would rent our farm<br />

to them, so we did that. If we<br />

had any sense when we rented<br />

out the farm, my wife Liz and I<br />

would have retired.<br />

CUTTING EDGE: Alastair Frizzell and son Nicholas will soon be launching this solarpowered<br />

robotic irrigator. Below: Frizzell farmed the family property through recession<br />

and drought in the 1980s. He is pictured towing son Hamish.<br />

What did you do instead of<br />

retiring?<br />

Given that, when I was at<br />

Lincoln, I was making amplifiers<br />

for the other students as a parttime<br />

hobby and had an interest<br />

in electronics, we started an<br />

electronics business (Frizzell<br />

Agricultural Electronics).<br />

Can you tell me about<br />

making amplifiers for your<br />

friends at university?<br />

Back in those days it was vinyl<br />

records. Amplifiers boost up the<br />

power of the signal that comes<br />

from the record turntable before<br />

it feeds it to the speakers. They<br />

were very expensive back then.<br />

I started building the electronic<br />

unit to connect to a turntable.<br />

A friend of mine was interested<br />

in cabinet-making, so he would<br />

help me and build the speaker<br />

boxes. We could produce the<br />

gear for the students at a lower<br />

price.<br />

How did you go from musical<br />

electronics to electronics for<br />

farming?<br />

The principles of electronics<br />

are basically the same right<br />

across. We always say that<br />

you don’t ever invent<br />

something, every invention<br />

tends to build<br />

on gear that is already there.<br />

What are some of your<br />

agricultural inventions<br />

since establishing Frizzell<br />

Agricultural Electronics?<br />

What we were doing initially<br />

was primarily weighing<br />

equipment, through from<br />

stock scales to weigh bridges.<br />

We also did some irrigation<br />

monitoring equipment. It then<br />

progressed about eight years<br />

ago, we started supplying solarpowered<br />

water pumps, mostly<br />

to hill country sheep and beef<br />

farmers for stock water. My<br />

youngest son, Nicholas, works<br />

in the business here. He’s our<br />

technical manager. He does a lot<br />

of the design systems and solar<br />

pumps.<br />

Farmers pay tens of<br />

thousands of dollars each year<br />

in electricity to pump water for<br />

irrigation, are you helping them<br />

to go solar?<br />

Solar water pumps have really<br />

been a whole development<br />

programme. We are starting<br />

to put solar panels onto big<br />

irrigation pumps, because with<br />

the price of electricity now, it’s<br />

economical to do that. One we<br />

are doing at the moment has got<br />

about 300 panels on it.<br />

How many farmers are you<br />

helping to move their irrigation<br />

systems to solar?<br />

About half a dozen so far,<br />

and we have another 20 or 30<br />

in the system working their<br />

way through. They are located<br />

typically from the top end of<br />

Canterbury down through into<br />

Otago. We have one group of<br />

farmers that we are talking to<br />

at the moment in Tarras. They<br />

pump out of the Clutha and<br />

they are paying nearly a million<br />

dollars in electricity costs a year.<br />

What is your latest invention?<br />

The next development on the<br />

list is an autonomous irrigator.<br />

Centre pivots effectively irrigate<br />

about 80 per cent of a square<br />

field, all the corners get missed.<br />

So you’ve got 20 per cent of a<br />

dairy farm not producing to its<br />

potential. What we are working<br />

on is a robot irrigator that<br />

walks its way round in that area<br />

automatically, and does a much<br />

more uniform irrigation.<br />

Do you have any other<br />

concepts or ideas you hope to<br />

invent in the future?<br />

No, my wife said I’m not<br />

allowed any more.<br />

Why is that?<br />

Whilst we could have retired<br />

quite happily on the income<br />

from the rental of the farm, now,<br />

according to my wife, all of that<br />

money goes into research and<br />

development in this company.<br />

Do you regret that you did<br />

not retire about 20 years ago<br />

when you leased out the farm?<br />

It depends on the days. When<br />

everything is going wrong and<br />

it’s terrible weather outside, you<br />

go: ‘Why did I ever do this?<br />

In Ōpākihi, it’s in our common interest to look out for each other. Let’s face it – flood policies that are<br />

unfair to farmers will hurt urban residents too. Similarly, better water management benefits both town<br />

OUR PEOPLE<br />

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

‘It gets you out of bed in the morning’<br />

• From page 13<br />

I could be sitting up in<br />

Brisbane or something on the<br />

beach in the sun at the moment.’<br />

But it’s the classic comment<br />

of: ‘It gets you out of bed in the<br />

morning.’ A lot of the satisfaction<br />

is visiting properties, effectively<br />

helping them to improve the<br />

profitability and the efficiency of<br />

their farms, and helping them to<br />

solve problems, all that kind of<br />

stuff.<br />

You have a passion for what<br />

you do?<br />

Yes, I think so. I had a father<br />

(Noel Frizzell) who was the<br />

same too, that although they<br />

had been farmers for four or<br />

five generations, none of us were<br />

“farmers.” Grand-dad was very<br />

good at art and my younger<br />

brother was an animation artist,<br />

He did things like the Hairy<br />

Maclary animation series (Euan<br />

Frizzell). Dad farmed, but it was a<br />

job. I mean, you like the farming,<br />

but as much as anything, it<br />

was a job rather than a life<br />

devotion as such. Dad invented<br />

a livestock ear-tag system that<br />

was quite good, back in the day<br />

when the very early ones were<br />

not particularly convenient or<br />

not that easy to use. He never<br />

commercialised it. He also did<br />

a pictorial history of Kirwee, a<br />

book that is still selling quietly. It<br />

traces the history of Kirwee.<br />

PASSION FOR MUSIC: Alastair Frizzell (left) gets some trombone tips from Christchurch<br />

Symphony Orchestra principal bass trombone Pablo Ruiz Henao at an orchestra open<br />

day earlier this year. Above right: Frizzell with wife Liz, graduating from Lincoln University.<br />

Right: Frizzell with grandson Lucas at a field day event.<br />

Do you have any thoughts of Lincoln, me and my friend<br />

retiring?<br />

started learning the bagpipes. I<br />

Quietly aiming. We always just decided about three years ago,<br />

seem to be too busy. These cold I needed to get back into it.<br />

mornings, I turn up at about nine You’ve got to remember, I am in<br />

o’clock in the morning where the ultimate of dull, boring and<br />

days gone by it would have been pedantic persons. That’s okay for<br />

a seven o’clock start. And there’s electronics, then the trombone is<br />

always trombone practice that kind of the simplest instrument<br />

needs doing.<br />

there is. All it is, is a piece of tube<br />

How did you get into learning that you alter the length of it to<br />

the trombone?<br />

help you change the notes. Really<br />

I’ve been interested in music it is the crudest instrument that<br />

all my life. When I was at you can lay your hands on. But<br />

also very flexible and versatile,<br />

and an interesting challenge. I’m<br />

still not a very good player but<br />

working at it. I’ve been lucky I’ve<br />

had three really good teachers.<br />

What is your goal?<br />

It’s really ultimately to be part<br />

of a band, there’s some quite good<br />

ones. The Ellesmere Big Band,<br />

I’ve sat on there a couple of times.<br />

I’ve got to lift my act a bit more<br />

to really contribute to them, but<br />

it’s working towards becoming<br />

involved in a band like that.<br />

from 11 to 25 – enrolled their<br />

sons and daughters to help them<br />

become independent.<br />

But for those who wanted to<br />

take their cooking skills further<br />

and get a job in a kitchen, they<br />

struggled to do so.<br />

Those who did find employment<br />

were relegated to menial<br />

tasks, such as washing dishes,<br />

and not adequately paid.<br />

“They do the same work, I<br />

think it’s really unfair and it’s<br />

really unethical,” Yosef said.<br />

Yosef was currently advocating<br />

for one of her autistic students,<br />

20-year-old Aron Harris, of<br />

Prebbleton, who wanted to work<br />

in a kitchen.<br />

Hardworking and enthusiastic,<br />

Aron had showed flair with all<br />

sorts of dishes, including main<br />

meals, desserts and baking.<br />

“I throw all sorts of challenges<br />

at him. When he cooks he is in<br />

his happy place. He has a major<br />

talent for it. I show him once, he<br />

just does it,” Yosef said.<br />

“I don’t make it easy for them,<br />

I actually challenge them in<br />

Talented students seek fair employment<br />

HAPPY PLACE: Aron Harris has a passion for food and a<br />

talent for cooking.<br />

every class.”<br />

Aron’s mother Jo Harris said<br />

her son had always helped her in<br />

the kitchen at home and loved<br />

anything to do with food.<br />

“This year he’s actually become<br />

the best cook in our house,” Harris<br />

said.<br />

Aron was a student at Allenvale<br />

School for specialist education<br />

in Christchurch. He also worked<br />

two hours voluntarily in a fruit<br />

and vegetable store each week,<br />

bagging items and carrying in<br />

freight.<br />

Aron said he had been disappointed<br />

recently when two work<br />

opportunities fell through.<br />

First a work experience placement<br />

in a Christchurch restaurant<br />

that was pursued by his<br />

disability worker did not eventuate,<br />

then a planned internship at<br />

a Rolleston fast food restaurant<br />

Yosef says<br />

young people<br />

with special<br />

needs are not<br />

being given<br />

opportunities<br />

in the<br />

hospitality<br />

industry.<br />

was postponed indefinitely.<br />

Aron said he was keen to find<br />

paid part-time or full-time work,<br />

ideally in food preparation.<br />

“Cooking makes me feel<br />

happy. I want a job so I can help,<br />

and be part of a team,” he said.<br />

Yosef said ultimately she<br />

would like to see a restaurateur<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong> create a business<br />

model with a focus on employing<br />

people with special needs. Restaurants<br />

and cafes like this operated<br />

throughout the world, and<br />

owners had found them popular<br />

with customers in general.<br />

“It does work because they<br />

put people with special needs in<br />

front of our society and not at<br />

the back,” Yosef said.<br />

Keeping up to date<br />

with your vaccinations<br />

is really important,<br />

even if you’ve already<br />

had COVID-19.<br />

You can catch COVID-19 more than once. Boosters<br />

help protect you from getting very sick from COVID-19,<br />

ending up in hospital, and even death.<br />

Keeping up to date with your vaccinations is one of the most important things<br />

you can do to help protect yourself, your whānau and your community.<br />

A booster will provide extra protection from a previous vaccination and<br />

help your immunity be stronger and last longer. And, by staying as healthy<br />

as you can, you help reduce pressure on our communities, businesses and<br />

the health sector.<br />

If you’ve had COVID-19, you can get your booster three months after you<br />

tested positive. Make sure you are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccinations.<br />

Check your eligibility at Covid19.govt.nz or call 0800 28 29 26.

24 <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> Wednesday <strong>September</strong> <strong>14</strong> <strong>2022</strong><br />

Name and location confirmed for<br />

new Leeston Community Centre<br />

A name and location have been decided for the new Leeston Library<br />

and Community Centre, which is expected to open within the next<br />

three years.<br />

The facility, which is one of <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council’s major projects<br />

in its Long Term Plan for 2021-2031, will be built next to Leeston<br />

Reserve. The decision was confirmed at the Council’s August<br />

meeting, after consultation with the local community.<br />

Taste of culture for this year’s<br />

Faces of <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Faces of <strong>Selwyn</strong> returns to the air waves this month with seven stories from residents<br />

sharing their journeys to <strong>Selwyn</strong> and how to cook their favourite dishes.<br />

The first two stories went live on air on PlainsFM radio station this week on Monday 12<br />

and Tuesday 13, and the remaining stories will air on Thursday 15, Monday 19, Tuesday 20,<br />

Thursday 22 and Friday 23 of <strong>September</strong>, as part of Culturefest.<br />

This week, Deep Kumar, Agnes Guda and Farin Nisa share their passion for cooking their<br />

favourite food from Italy, the Philippines and India.<br />

Deep explains why he loves cooking traditional Italian cuisine at his restaurant Bicycle Thief<br />

in Tai Tapu and cooking an Indian curry at his home in Rolleston. He describes the sounds of<br />

chorizo and prawns sizzling on a pan, knives and forks tapping on plates and people eating,<br />

as music to his ears.<br />

Agnes shares why pork sinigang is the perfect dish from the Philippines to have on a cold<br />

winter’s day.<br />

And on Thursday 15, try peda for dessert with Farin Nisa, as she shares her journey from Fiji<br />

to Rolleston.<br />

Next week, turn on your stove, get out your pots and pans, and tune into 96.9FM at 5pm on<br />

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.<br />

Hear how to make Samoan Saka from Keith Morrison, discover Razi Syed’s simple side dish<br />

of Indian Naan, find out what Mafatty and an African Braai is from Rue Jeche and lastly, learn<br />

a Palestinian family fatteh recipe from Hiba Elhanafy.<br />

These podcasts will also be available to listen to on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and on our<br />

website: selwyn.govt.nz/community/faces-of-selwyn. For more Culturefest events visit<br />

Voting papers are on their way<br />

Watch out for voting papers in your mailbox later this week – as voting gets under way in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s local elections.<br />

Voting papers will be mailed to all enrolled voters over the next few days, and the official<br />

voting period opens on Friday (16 <strong>September</strong>). Voting is by postal vote and closes at 12<br />

midday on Saturday 8 October.<br />

“This is a really important opportunity<br />

for <strong>Selwyn</strong> residents to have a say on the<br />

district’s future – and it only comes around<br />

once every three years,” says Deputy<br />

Electoral Officer Stephen Hill.<br />

“We encourage people to take time to find<br />

out about the candidates in their area, then<br />

complete the voting forms and drop them<br />

into the post.”<br />

Voting papers can be posted at any NZ<br />

Post postbox, and the Council is also<br />

providing ballot boxes at the Council<br />

offices, all <strong>Selwyn</strong> libraries, and many community and recreation centres.<br />

As well as <strong>Selwyn</strong> council elections, voting papers will also include candidates standing for<br />

your Environment Canterbury constituency. Voting papers include instructions on how to cast<br />

your vote.<br />

The community centre and library building will be called Whata<br />

Rau – a name that has been generously gifted by Te Taumutu<br />

Rūnanga. It references the food platforms that could historically be<br />

seen by travellers on the flat landscape of Kā Pākihi Whakatekateka<br />

o Waitaha (the Canterbury Plains). The platforms signalled pā and<br />

the likelihood of food and manaaki/hospitality.<br />

In gifting the name, the rūnanga noted that the name recognises<br />

the many platforms and storage houses of knowledge and<br />

resources to be found throughout the district. Whata Rau were the<br />

epitome of manaaki – care, respect and hospitality - which is at<br />

the heart of venues such as community centres and libraries. The<br />

name also references the abundance of resources from Te Kete Ika<br />

a Rākaihautū, Te Waihora (Lake Ellesmere).<br />

“Whata Rau is a very generous gift from Te Taumutu and I would<br />

like to wholeheartedly thank the Rūnanga,” Council Group Manager<br />

Community Services and Facilities Denise Kidd says.<br />

Construction is planned to take place in the 2024/2025<br />

financial year.<br />

Last week for feedback on medium<br />

density rules<br />

This week is the last opportunity to have your say on new housing<br />

intensification rules and how they will apply in <strong>Selwyn</strong> district.<br />

New legislation requires five of the largest urban environments in<br />

New Zealand – including parts of <strong>Selwyn</strong> – to enable an increase in<br />

housing supply, through a new Medium Density Residential Zone in<br />

relevant areas.<br />

“While changes set out by the Government to encourage housing<br />

supply are not optional, people have the chance to shape the details<br />

of what is affected,” Council Group Manager Development and<br />

Growth Tim Harris says.<br />

“Anyone can make a submission about new land that is proposed<br />

to be rezoned from rural to residential. There are also places that<br />

the Council can deem inappropriate to have the new medium<br />

density standards applied to. This includes protecting significant<br />

infrastructure or the history, cultural or ecological value of a place,”<br />

he says.<br />

The new housing intensification rules will allow for more housing<br />

and at greater heights in current residential areas in Rolleston,<br />

Lincoln and Prebbleton. Within these areas, landowners will be able<br />

to build up to three buildings at a maximum of three storeys high<br />

without requiring a resource consent.<br />

You can find out more about the variations to Proposed <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

District Plan and certain Private Plan Changes to the Operative<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> District Plan, supporting information, and submission forms<br />

at selwyn.govt.nz/yoursay, and at Council service centres and public<br />

libraries in Darfield, Leeston and Rolleston.<br />

A free Friend of Submitter service is also available, provided by the<br />

Ministry for the Environment, to support people in the process of<br />

making a submission.<br />

Submissions can be made until 5pm, Friday 16 <strong>September</strong> <strong>2022</strong>.<br />

If you don’t receive voting papers, it may be because you’re not enrolled, or have recently<br />

moved into the district or changed address – but you can still vote by special vote.<br />

“I’d encourage anyone who hasn’t yet enrolled or updated their details to do so and cast a<br />

special vote.”<br />

You can request special voting papers from the Council at electoral.officer@selwyn.govt.nz or<br />

0800 SELWYN (0800 735 996), or call in to the Council offices or any <strong>Selwyn</strong> library during<br />

open hours.<br />

maps and other information – is available at selwyn.govt.nz/elections.<br />

Books kick-start literacy, language and<br />

learning about local Māori legends<br />

CHILDREN AT <strong>Selwyn</strong> schools<br />

and early childhood centres are<br />

being given a series of new books<br />

about local Māori legends that<br />

have been illustrated by young<br />

artists.<br />

Canterbury University wellbeing<br />

institute director Professor<br />

Gail Gillon said the new books<br />

are designed to develop children’s<br />

oral language and literacy<br />

skills.<br />

Using funding provided by<br />

the Ministry of Education,<br />

600 copies of the books will be<br />

given to 50 schools, nearly 100<br />

early childhood centres and six<br />

libraries in the Taumutu area,<br />

which centres around Taumutu<br />

and Waihora and extends as far<br />

south as the Ashburton River<br />

and Hakatere in Mid Canterbury.<br />

The books are the result<br />

of a collaboration between<br />

Canterbury University’s Child<br />

Well-being Research Institute<br />

and Te Taumutu Rūnanga o Ngāi<br />

Tahu.<br />

The books depict three different<br />

pūrākau (myths) that are significant<br />

to Taumutu, including<br />

Ruru and the Giant Pouākai, The<br />

Creation of Tuna, and Taniwha<br />

and the Rakaia Gorge.<br />

Larger size versions for<br />

teachers to read are being<br />

distributed this month, along<br />

with smaller versions called<br />

readers. The readers have<br />

simpler text for children to read<br />

themselves after they have heard<br />

the longer versions.<br />

Gillon said the books are designed<br />

to develop oral language<br />

and literacy skills while also<br />

director<br />

Professor Gail<br />

Gillon with<br />

the books<br />

depicting<br />

stories<br />

significant to<br />

the Taumutu<br />

area.<br />

helping children learn about<br />

Māori legends and places that<br />

are an important part of their<br />

local cultural history.<br />

“We are delighted to have<br />

been able to work alongside Te<br />

Taumutu Rūnanga to bring these<br />

stories to life for young readers,”<br />

she said.<br />

“The books were developed<br />

as part of a research project<br />

within the Better Start National<br />

Science Challenge in response to<br />

the rūnanga’s call for culturally<br />

appropriate and place-based<br />

stories relevant to local<br />

communities. Local rangatahi<br />

have created the illustrations and<br />

the result is a beautiful series of<br />

books.”<br />

The books were produced as<br />

part of a pilot study for an early<br />

childhood literacy approach,<br />

in partnership with Kidsfirst<br />

Kindergartens, called Words<br />

Can POP.<br />

Led by Gillon and Professor<br />

Brigid McNeill from Canterbury<br />

University, the Words Can POP<br />

framework builds three-to-fouryear-old<br />

children’s skills in oral<br />

language, early phoneme and<br />

print awareness, vocabulary and<br />

story-telling skills.<br />

The pilot research was<br />

successfully implemented in<br />

partnership with Kidsfirst in<br />

24 of their kindergartens in the<br />

Canterbury region.<br />

Wetlands need to be carefully managed<br />

I TAKE my dog for walks<br />

around the wetlands on<br />

Ellesmere Rd in Lincoln.<br />

Would it be too much to ask<br />

for the council to put bins for<br />

rubbish and to encourage dog<br />

owners to put poo bags in bin<br />

and not to pollute the land?<br />

That’s what the rates go towards,<br />

isn’t it? And some picnic<br />

tables to encourage family and<br />

people, locals to get out and<br />

about to enjoy the natural beauty<br />

Lincoln has to offer.<br />

Loving the natural beauty of<br />

New Zealand.<br />

-Liz Goslin<br />

District council reserves<br />

operations manager Jonathan<br />

Crawford responds:<br />

“We are currently working<br />

through the access points and<br />

linkages from surrounding<br />

development and as part of that<br />

we will be looking into putting<br />

in bins. We’re also considering a<br />

possible picnic area at the Ellesmere<br />

Rd entrance in the future.<br />

“The wetland reserves themselves<br />

are a protected area and a<br />

sensitive ecology. While we do<br />

encourage people to use them for<br />

walking and cycling and enjoying<br />

the fantastic native plants<br />

and bird-life in these areas, we<br />

do have to be sensitive to protecting<br />

them as well.<br />

“Because of the risks of damage<br />

to the ecology from food<br />

scraps and the like we would<br />

not put picnic tables with the<br />

wetlands.<br />

“While these wetlands are<br />

open to dogs on leads we also<br />

encourage dog owners to be considerate<br />

of these precious areas<br />

and other users, and we encourage<br />

them to consider using other<br />

exercise areas for dogs, such<br />

as the off-leash exercise areas<br />

around Lincoln Event Centre.<br />

“We are working through a<br />

process for building a dedicated<br />

dog park in Lincoln, which will<br />

add an additional exercise area<br />

along with the new Springs Park<br />

on Springs Rd, which is due to<br />

open later this year.”<br />

Bid to honour war hero shot down<br />

ECan chief executive Stefanie<br />

Rixecker will also be lobbied for<br />

“The letter they came back<br />

with was extremely brief. It said:<br />

‘We cannot support in the meantime’,<br />

there was no reason at all,”<br />

Thomson said.<br />

“It won’t stop us making an application<br />

He said Ngai Tahu representatives<br />

proposal to rename the airport<br />

gateway was referred to the<br />

no recommendation to take it<br />

further.<br />

“In early July, council staff<br />

spoke with the club about council<br />

proposal,” Dalziel said.<br />

“Council staff suggested to<br />

the club that they discuss this<br />

with Ngāi Tūāhuriri in the first<br />

to support the proposal could<br />

be made. Staff also advised<br />

down and Ainsley Walter<br />

being appointed. Lang will<br />

The trust’s 11th year of<br />

operation got off to a great<br />

start with the Hororata<br />

Glow Festival in May 2021.<br />

However, quickly after<br />

this Covid reared its head<br />

again causing everyone to<br />

pivot once again.<br />

Thanks to the patrons,<br />

partners and funders the<br />

trust was able to continue<br />

to support the community<br />

to its full extent in spite<br />

of the 2021 games being<br />

cancelled.<br />

This included working<br />

with community groups<br />

enabling them to raise a<br />

combined $122,000 for<br />

their own causes, building<br />

the new online community<br />

hub, and supporting <strong>14</strong><br />

different groups in various<br />

ways.<br />

As always there is a lot<br />

going on in the rural community.<br />

The Hororata<br />

Community Trust will<br />

continue to provide the<br />

tools, resources and<br />

structure to ensure the<br />

communities thrive now<br />

and into the future.<br />

Keep your diesel engine<br />

running at its best<br />

Many people will know someone who<br />

has accidentally filled their diesel vehicle<br />

with petrol. There may be minimal<br />

problems if it’s noticed straight away and<br />

drained. However, driving your diesel<br />

vehicle with petrol in it for any length of<br />

time may cause damage and mean your<br />

fuel pump and injector may need to be<br />

replaced. The team at Diesel Fix, 821 Jones<br />

Road, Rolleston, are diesel specialists<br />

in fuel injectors, vehicle diagnostics,<br />

reconditioning fuel injectors and pumps,<br />

and mechanical repairs for various diesel<br />

vehicles, including tractors and agricultural<br />

equipment. Phil and the team will complete<br />

the work on-site and get you back on the<br />

road as quickly as possible.<br />

With Diesel Fix located in Rolleston,<br />

there is easy accessibility to this specialist<br />

service and the equipment needed for<br />

repairs, with staff providing excellent<br />

knowledge and customer service. To keep<br />

your diesel engine running at its best,<br />

you should be aware of common bad<br />

fuel injector signs. On average, diesel fuel<br />

injectors last up to 160,000 km, but damage<br />

can occur to fuel injectors at any time, and<br />

they will become less efficient over time.<br />

your fuel injection system will give poor<br />

performance and may cause your vehicle<br />

to have low RPMs or rev inconsistently. If<br />

your vehicle misfires or you have trouble<br />

starting, it could be due to a clogged or<br />

incorrectly opening fuel injector. Smelling<br />

a strong diesel odour may mean a leak<br />

due to a crack or a valve not closing<br />

correctly. With higher diesel fuel costs at<br />

the moment, experiencing reduced fuel<br />

economy is the last thing you want. Worn<br />

fuel injectors may be the cause as more<br />

fuel will need to be burned to obtain the<br />

performance output.<br />

TROTTING SUCCESS: Trainer-driver Leo O’Reilly winning<br />

with 12-year-old gelding Jerry Garcia at Methven.<br />

PHOTOS: HARNESS RACING NEW ZEALAND<br />

‘Grand old campaigner’ wins at Methven<br />

• By Joshua Smith<br />

EVERGREEN trotter Jerry<br />

Garcia continued to belie his<br />

age at Methven on Sunday when<br />

winning the Methven Seed<br />

Cleaning Trot (2400m).<br />

It was his sixth trotting success<br />

after previously posting nine wins<br />

as a pacer, and trainer-driver<br />

Leo O’Reilly is hoping he can<br />

further add to that tally before the<br />

12-year-old gelding is aged out of<br />

racing at the end of the year.<br />

“I am really happy, he went<br />

really well. He has been a grand<br />

• By Dave Di Somma<br />

ROBERT Anderson admits he<br />

wasn’t sure what to expect when<br />

he bred a Sundon mare to a<br />

pacing stallion.<br />

But judging from her sizzling<br />

form at the trials Jezebel looks to<br />

be an exciting prospect.<br />

“I’ve never had one who works<br />

like she works. She’s big and<br />

powerful and glides over the<br />

ground,” he said.<br />

Four-year-old mare Jezebel is<br />

by Sir Lincoln out of Proserpina.<br />

She was an unraced mare by<br />

Sundon out of Smooth Nero.<br />

Smooth Nero, a good performer<br />

old campaigner,” O’Reilly said.<br />

“We were quite happy leading<br />

into today with him. He went<br />

okay last start, but he was a bit<br />

tired after that, so we gave him a<br />

week off.<br />

“He won a trial here (Methven)<br />

last week and he has trained on<br />

well.”<br />

The son of Jereme’s Jet was<br />

nearing the end of his racing career<br />

as a pacer in 2017. However,<br />

O’Reilly elected to try his gelding<br />

as a trotter given his propensity<br />

towards that gait in training.<br />

for Anderson, winning five starts<br />

in the 1990s, produced nine foals<br />

– eight of which went to pacing<br />

sires. Only Proserpina went to a<br />

trotting stallion, the one and only<br />

Sundon no less. Why?<br />

“The reason I went to Sundon<br />

was that two of Smooth Nero’s<br />

foals by pacing sires could both<br />

trot a bit so I decided to try her<br />

with a trotting sire.”<br />

Jezebel is the third and final<br />

foal from Proserpina, who died<br />

in 2019. Her most successful<br />

progeny to date has been Kar<br />

Manor, a Majestic Son trotter<br />

who’s won eight of 40 career<br />

starts and is currently with Tim<br />

His belief in the gelding was<br />

vindicated, extending his racing<br />

career for another six seasons.<br />

“At the end of his pacing career<br />

out on the track he was sort of<br />

trotting in his hopples,” O’Reilly<br />

said.<br />

“When we were jogging him<br />

he could trot quite well so I<br />

thought I will have a go and the<br />

owners were happy and agreed.<br />

“It took him a while but he got<br />

there.<br />

“He can begin really fast now.<br />

In the early days he was step and<br />

Butt in Australia.<br />

Anderson bred Jezebel on a bit<br />

of a whim.<br />

“I was offered a free service<br />

to Sir Lincoln and thought why<br />

not?” Anderson said.<br />

“Some people have asked me<br />

about breeding to a trotting mare<br />

but I had nothing to lose really.”<br />

Foaled in 2017, Jezebel showed<br />

ability as a pacer right from the<br />

start but her initial campaign<br />

was derailed by injury.<br />

“She got sore after flying home<br />

at the trials one day and she had<br />

a hairline fracture in her foot.”<br />

“I decided to get her operated<br />

on, it cost $4000 and she’s now<br />

hold your breath kind of horse.<br />

“It was his first win as trotter<br />

on the grass today, so it was good<br />

to add to his previous win on the<br />

grass as a pacer.”<br />

Of his 15 wins to date, O’Reilly<br />

highlighted one of his victories<br />

as a pacer as his proudest moment.<br />

“I was really thrilled when he<br />

won the Kurow Cup as a pacer.<br />

That was great,” he said.<br />

Now in the twilight of his<br />

career, O’Reilly said he would be<br />

selective in the races he targeted<br />

got two or three screws in her<br />

pastern.”<br />

The investment might yet pay<br />

dividends for Anderson, who has<br />

had 130 driving and 40 training<br />

wins since starting out in the<br />

1980s. His biggest moment in the<br />

cart was finishing second to Iraklis<br />

in the 1997 New Zealand Cup<br />

with Smooth Dominion, trained<br />

by his good mate Mike Stevens.<br />

At last week’s trials at Rangiora<br />

Jezebel missed away, losing about<br />

30 metres before storming home<br />

to be just a head away from the<br />

pace-making winner, Vincent<br />

Vega. Her time for the 2600m<br />

was 3:26.6. Vega Vincent went<br />

with Jerry Garcia.<br />

“When he is 13-years-old I<br />

don’t think he can race, so this<br />

is his last season and we will try<br />

and pick a race that is suitable for<br />

him,” he said.<br />

O’Reilly was pleased to be racing<br />

back on the grass at Methven<br />

and said it remains a vital part of<br />

the industry.<br />

“I love racing at Methven and<br />

on the grass,” he said.<br />

“It suits horses that can’t<br />

compete at Addington.”<br />

on to finish second at Addington<br />

two days later.<br />

It was an eye catching performance<br />

from Jezebel, and already<br />

Anderson says he’s had some<br />

offers for her.<br />

“But I’ll keep her – that’s my<br />

thinking right now.”<br />

Jezebel has had a solid buildup<br />

of standing start workouts<br />

and trials of late, and is likely to<br />

front up behind the mobile gate<br />

at the trials in the fortnight or so.<br />

“If she stays sound hopefully<br />

she’ll be racing in October.”<br />

Paid Advertising Feature<br />

We have lived in <strong>Selwyn</strong> on our lifestyle<br />

block between Rolleston and West Melton<br />

for 8 years. I am also involved in the national<br />

committee for the New Zealand Rare Breeds<br />

Conservation Society.<br />

If elected I will consult with and support our<br />

community to make an informed decision<br />

regarding Three Waters. It will also be<br />

important for me to help you answer the<br />

question: Should we chlorinate or fluoridate<br />

our water supplies? We need as a community<br />

to implement the Rolleston Flyover Project<br />

right first time. The next council term is key to<br />

ensuring this project is future proof.<br />

One of my main priorities in <strong>Selwyn</strong> is to<br />

ensure our housing developments are more<br />

sustainable and we reduce our impact<br />

on productive land. I have worked in the<br />

Construction and Engineering Industries for<br />

40 years and I am currently working on<br />

major projects including Te Kaha and our<br />

own Lincoln University.<br />

I welcome the opportunity to use my<br />

experience and knowledge to support the<br />

future of <strong>Selwyn</strong> District.<br />

I am an Independent Candidate as I was<br />

in the 2019 local elections and the 2020<br />

parliamentary elections.<br />

John Sunckell Standing for Environment Canterbury<br />

It has been a privilege to represent Mid<br />

Canterbury, Ashburton and <strong>Selwyn</strong> Districts for<br />

the past six years.<br />

I am a father, farmer and paramedic first and<br />

a politician second. I know the challenges<br />

that we and the environment face and the<br />

requirement for balanced decision making.<br />

Three of my standout achievements this term<br />

include instigating the public transport reduced<br />

fare trial, the removal of fare zones in <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

and getting the <strong>Selwyn</strong> and Ashburton river<br />

catchments firmly onto our agenda following<br />

the 2021 floods.<br />

Another big piece of work that I am leading as<br />

the chair of Finance and Risk is how we better<br />

develop business cases for our work, prioritise<br />

our expenditure to ensure value of outcomes<br />

and reduce the rate burden.<br />

Our biggest challenges in the coming term<br />

will be giving effect to the torrent of policy<br />

and rule changes coming at us from Central<br />

Government.<br />

One in particular how we rewrite through<br />

co-design with Ngai Tahu our environmental<br />

planning rules to meet the Governments<br />

new requirements under the National Policy<br />

Statement on Freshwater.<br />

These changes are going to override a lot of<br />

local community wishes and aspirations.<br />

It is critical that you the wider community<br />

get as early a say in these matters because<br />

our statutory responsibilities sit with you the<br />

ratepayers and community.<br />

Therefore my experience counts as we<br />

navigate this, I seek your ongoing support as<br />

an advocate for Mid Canterbury.<br />

Ian Mackenzie Standing for Environment Canterbury<br />

I’ve lived and farmed at Akaunui, south east<br />

of Ashburton since graduating from Lincoln<br />

College. I bring local leadership with a sound<br />

knowledge of the Canterbury region but<br />

particularly the Ashburton and <strong>Selwyn</strong> districts,<br />

having fished and boated most of the rivers,<br />

and tramped, skied, bicycled and climbed<br />

most of the back country. I have a long history<br />

of serving my community in a variety of roles,<br />

including leading environmental stewardship<br />

initiatives across the region and on my own<br />

land. I have supported seed funding for<br />

catchment collectives to work with landowners<br />

to further this.<br />

As a councillor I’ve been leading reviews of<br />

our flood protection and river management<br />

and how we fund these, with particular<br />

consideration of the additional threat climate<br />

change brings. It is my strong opinion that $s<br />

spent on preventing flood damage is much<br />

better than cleaning up after events. I’ve<br />

brought governance skills, pragmatism, and<br />

common sense to the council. I’m led by<br />

science and facts rather than political rhetoric;<br />

and advocate for a frugal and accountable<br />

regime when spending your ratepayers’<br />

money. However, I acknowledge there is still<br />

much to be done in improving our biodiversity<br />

and freshwater values, building on the huge<br />

amount of work already underway.<br />

I was a member of the ministerial advisory<br />

group that helped design the First National<br />

Policy Statement for Freshwater that set the<br />

requirement to improve our water quality. This<br />

is a long game and Environment Canterbury<br />

has lead NZ in implementing plans to further<br />

this important work. Implementing the new<br />

NPSFW to set us on the path to further protect<br />

and improve water quality while maintaining<br />

social and economic benefits will take careful<br />

leadership and common sense. Having served<br />

one term on council I think I can offer that<br />

common sense and leadership.<br />

Debra Hasson Standing for Springs Ward<br />

Re-elect Debra Hasson for Springs Ward.<br />

I will continue to work alongside community<br />

committees and residents bringing local issues<br />

and your complaints to Councils attention.<br />

A successful Council is dependent on each<br />

elected representative bringing their strengths<br />

to the table for open debate. On your behalf<br />

I’m not afraid to ask the hard questions<br />

however I can never guarantee “the answer<br />

you want”. Decision-making is based on the<br />

majority agreeing on an outcome.<br />

Accountability: Responding to Councils<br />

multimillion dollar budget I hold Institute of<br />

Directors membership and appointment to<br />

Council’s Audit and Risk Committee. I sent<br />

a personal submission to the Three Water<br />

Reforms questioning the process for public<br />

accountability and community engagement.<br />

Future for Local Government: Recent<br />

Central Government policy directives for<br />

growth has attracted a lot of attention.<br />

Reviewing the Future for Local Government<br />

is next and still unknown. Instead of playing<br />

the “blame game” or “we know best” good<br />

governance is talking about our issues and<br />

sharing ideas that challenge our current<br />

thinking to make positive changes.<br />

Community Projects: For Springs Ward<br />

I support Lincoln’s Town Centre upgrade, new<br />

Prebbleton Community facility and sealing of<br />

Peryman’s Road Tai Tapu being started this<br />

term. These projects are funded in Council’s<br />

budget.<br />

Climate Change: I hold university<br />

qualifications in Environmental Management<br />

to advocate for Climate Change planning.<br />

A Springston resident, I’m a volunteer<br />

co-ordinator for rural landowners undertaking<br />

restoration projects alongside local streams<br />

My background in science, engineering and<br />

our community to address difficult challenges<br />

such as working to fairly distribute revenue for<br />

the benefit of all ratepayers; establishing cost<br />

I believe that as our town matures, we need<br />

to build a community where our town centre is<br />

fit for the future, it is safe around our schools<br />

with busier roads, it is safe for our people to<br />

live and move around and where there are<br />

activities that can entertain everyone.<br />

I will be your councillor who will place people at<br />

the centre of Council’s thinking when decisions<br />

are being made that impact community growth<br />

and wellbeing. It is the responsibility of our<br />

Council to have processes in place to allow the<br />

voice of the community to be heard.<br />

As a Police Senior Sergeant, I have worked<br />

with communities as they have rebuilt in postearthquake<br />

environments. I have worked with<br />

roading stakeholders making our roads and<br />

highways better and safer through common<br />

Nicole Reid Standing for Rolleston Ward<br />

I was first elected to council in 2016; and<br />

would be honoured to be elected again for a<br />

third term to represent the Rolleston ward.<br />

I stand for a sustainable and accessible<br />

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

With an environmental planning and<br />

engineering background, my sustainability<br />

focus is for a cleaner, healthier environment.<br />

Therefore I will continue to advocate for<br />

walking and cycling routes, more public<br />

transport options, sustainable waste initiatives,<br />

and planning for climate change resilience.<br />

After moving to Rolleston 12 years ago,<br />

I struggled to easily navigate around town<br />

at times with our young family. That led to<br />

my determined advocacy for accessibility<br />

improvements; which continued when on<br />

council, with the aim that everyone can equally<br />

participate in our community. This includes<br />

having safer streets so, for example, parents<br />

don’t think they have to drive their children<br />

to school and elsewhere. If people feel<br />

safer getting around without their vehicles<br />

then our towns can be centred more around<br />

people. Therefore it will mean our towns will<br />

be more liveable places for us all. This has<br />

been a keen focus of mine particularly, which<br />

includes a vibrant town centre, public art, and<br />

community spaces.<br />

My current council positions are <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Waihora Water Zone Committee<br />

I sincerely believe we live in the best district in<br />

the country and I am very passionate to see us<br />

grow and live our best life here.<br />

I hold a Business degree and Management<br />

acumen to deliver results that also adheres to<br />

council budgets.<br />

With my effective problem solving skills I’m<br />

confident ill add immense amount of value to<br />

our town and its future - without a focus on<br />

increasing rates.<br />

My focuses: Your quality of life. Any of the<br />

Councils services affecting you I want to<br />

community facilities that meet our needs not<br />

just for today but for many generations. Crime<br />

prevention and improving community safety.<br />

What’s important to you is a big deal to me.<br />

I take action and simply get things done.<br />

Kia ora, and thank you for your interest in local<br />

body elections. Voting is an important part of<br />

our democracy, and it’s great to see a range<br />

of candidates standing this year. I would also<br />

like to welcome to everyone who has moved<br />

to Rolleston recently; this really is a fantastic<br />

place and it’s been an honour to serve as one<br />

of your councillors.<br />

I come from a family of SME owners, have<br />

worked in a range of sectors, have three<br />

children, and volunteer with Rolleston<br />

Rotary and Te Rōhutu Whio school. Being<br />

on council is my only paid role these days,<br />

however I am also a postgraduate student<br />

at Lincoln University, seeking to deepen my<br />

understanding of resource management issues<br />

and legislation.<br />

My priority is to ensure that the next generation<br />

can prosper and thrive, by making long-term<br />

and locally-relevant decisions about housing,<br />

transport, waste, community resilience, and<br />

climate change. Central government make a<br />

lot of the “big” decisions in these areas, but<br />

how we apply them at a local level is up to us.<br />

I also believe in being where the people are –<br />

communicating council’s work not just through<br />

residents associations, but speaking with<br />

locals and engaging on social media. Please<br />

let me know if you ever want a chat.<br />

I look forward to elevating the voices of<br />

Rolleston and the wider district for another<br />

3 years.<br />

Fundraising for<br />

Jamboree<br />

UP A GEAR: After a strong start to the season, Muscle Mountain will now<br />

keep tuning up ahead of the Canterbury Park Trotting Cup.<br />

Bigger and better<br />

Muscle Mountain<br />

impresses<br />

• By Jonny Turner<br />

TROTTING FANS got their first glimpse<br />

of the older, wiser and faster Muscle<br />

Mountain when he started his spring on a<br />

perfect note in the Ordeal Trotting Cup at<br />

Addington on Friday night.<br />

The Greg and Nina Hope trained fiveyear-old<br />

sped off the back of last year’s<br />

Dominion runner-up Mataderos to win<br />

the Group Three feature in the hands of<br />

Ben Hope.<br />

Though they clearly had an established<br />

Group One winning star on their hands,<br />

the feeling within the Hope camp is<br />

that after a full season of open class<br />

competition, Muscle Mountain has<br />

returned an even stronger force this<br />

spring.<br />

“He felt like he has gone up a gear, to be<br />

honest,” Ben Hope said.<br />

“He feels like he has taken that next step<br />

and hopefully he continues to show that<br />

this campaign.”<br />

Muscle Mountain was away quickly<br />

from the standing start tapes, in the first<br />

show that he is older and wiser than last<br />

year.<br />

In stark contrast, the trotter missed<br />

away in his fresh-up run last year.<br />

After jumping into an early trail, there<br />

were little concerns for favourite punters<br />

with such a classy trotter getting such a<br />

sweet run.<br />

“He did it on his ear, to be honest,”<br />

Hope said.<br />

“The best part was that he stepped well<br />

and showed good manners, he was good<br />

to drive and relaxed in the running.<br />

“He got the run to win and he was too<br />

good on the day.”<br />

Muscle Mountain ended the winning<br />

run of Sundees Son in the Ordeal<br />

Trotting Cup.<br />

After three consecutive wins in the<br />

feature race, the undisputed king of New<br />

Zealand trotting bypassed this year’s<br />

edition.<br />

Muscle Mountain will now keep tuning<br />

up for his face-to-face meetings with the<br />

champ.<br />

But how he moves forward isn’t quite<br />

certain.<br />

The Hope team plan to start Muscle<br />

Mountain in the Canterbury Park<br />

Trotting Cup, which is more than a<br />

month away.<br />

They’d love to start in a race before<br />

then, but need to find an event where<br />

Muscle Mountain isn’t off a huge<br />

handicap.<br />

“The Canterbury Park Trotting Cup<br />

is about five weeks away, so we wouldn’t<br />

mind having a race before then.”<br />

“But in saying that, we don’t want to be<br />

off 50m or something like that.<br />

“We will see if we can find a race where<br />

he would be off a reasonable handicap<br />

and if we can find one it would be<br />

great.”<br />

Mataderos fought hard to take second<br />

behind Muscle Mountain and though he<br />

was defeated there was plenty of merit in<br />

his run.<br />

The trotter looked to stride out more<br />

fluently than in his win at Addington last<br />

week.<br />

Majestic Man tracked the first two<br />

throughout from three back on the pegs<br />

and he took third.<br />

Being able to take part in the New<br />

Zealand Scout Jamboree 2023 means<br />

everything to 10-year-old West Melton<br />

local Grace Wittington.<br />

Grace, a member of the Rolleston Scout<br />

Group, has come up with an enterprising<br />

way to fundraise the $2300 she needs<br />

to attend the event in Mystery Creek,<br />

Hamilton next year – Sunday carwashes.<br />

Grace, with the help of her younger<br />

brother, Ryan, is offering to wash cars<br />

every second Sunday until she has the<br />

funds she needs.<br />

She says she thinks the jamboree would<br />

be a “really fun experience and she would<br />

love to go and would be ecstatic” if people<br />

would support her fundraising venture.<br />

While the Scouts will also be<br />

fundraising as a group, members are also<br />

encouraged to individually fundraise to<br />

meet their goals.<br />

Grace says her first carwash session<br />

went well, and her customers were very<br />

happy. She charges $10 for small cars and<br />

$15 for utes and vans.<br />

Welcome to<br />

West Melton<br />

New artisan market<br />

West Melton Community<br />

Market organiser Tania<br />

Fernandez with her two girls<br />

Adyson (6) and Cora (4) and<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> MP Nicola Grigg.<br />

A new artisan market held monthly<br />

in West Melton will benefit community<br />

groups, says organiser Tania Fernandez.<br />

“Any profits generated from the market<br />

will be distributed to community groups<br />

as nominated and voted on by visitors to<br />

the market.”<br />

The West Melton Community Market<br />

is on the first Sunday of each month from<br />

9.30am and 12.30pm in the grounds of<br />

the West Melton Community Centre,<br />

1163 West Coast Rd.<br />

Tania says the first market held at the<br />

beginning of <strong>September</strong> was a resounding<br />

success with a great, relaxed, friendly vibe<br />

on the day where visitors could browse<br />

the stalls while listening to music and<br />

enjoying a coffee or an ice cream.<br />

“We were impressed with the<br />

community support. Over 300 people<br />

visited. The local community enjoyed<br />

being able to walk or bike to the market<br />

and families with kids made the most of<br />

the playground and skate park located<br />

beside the community centre.”<br />

Stall holders from West Melton,<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> and further afield took part in<br />

the new market offering a diverse range<br />

of products including plants, honey<br />

and seasonal farm produce, children’s<br />

clothing, wood and stone sculptures,<br />

Thermomix, candles, wine barrel trays<br />

and furniture, crystals, earrings, wheat<br />

bags, swim and book bags, bakery<br />

products, soaps and skin care, macramé<br />

and much more.<br />

“We received positive feedback from<br />

the stall holders and new stall holders<br />

have already started to enquire about our<br />

October event,” says Tania. “We’re all<br />

looking forward to the next one.”<br />

She says she’s also had great response<br />

from local businesses offering to help<br />

such as Four Square with discounted<br />

products for the sausage sizzle. “Fund<br />

raising groups are also invited to take part<br />

and run a sausage sizzle.”<br />

The next market is Sunday October 2<br />

at the West Melton Community Centre.<br />

GARDENING<br />

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

If your soil is dry enough now is the<br />

AFTER AN extraordinarily wet<br />

winter, fingers crossed that the<br />

weather settles down so we can<br />

get back into our gardens.<br />

Towards the end of the month<br />

temperatures will begin to<br />

increase, making it feel a little<br />

more like spring.<br />

Houseplant care<br />

Time to repot houseplants that<br />

have become “root bound” (its<br />

roots have filled the container it<br />

is growing in, and it stops growing<br />

well). Choose a larger container<br />

and if it is not new, clean<br />

it thoroughly and check there are<br />

adequate drainage holes – this is<br />

very important for houseplants.<br />

Remove the houseplant from<br />

the existing container by either<br />

soaking in water for a short time<br />

or run a sharp knife around the<br />

inside edge of the container.<br />

Where roots are heavily entwined<br />

make short cuts through<br />

the roots around the sides of the<br />

root ball and across the base of<br />

the roots.<br />

Using fresh potting mix, repot<br />

the house plant to the same level<br />

it was growing previously and<br />

water immediately. The new potting<br />

mix contains slow-release<br />

fertiliser, so you won’t need to<br />

fertilise for a few months.<br />

Vegetable garden<br />

It is still a little early for<br />

planting summer vegetables,<br />

however, preparation of sites<br />

for these plants should be in<br />

full swing, with the addition of<br />

fresh compost and/or garden<br />

mix into the existing soil. Plan<br />

to rotate crops from previous<br />

years, especially potatoes. Young<br />

seedlings of summer vegetables<br />

should be in active growth in a<br />

sheltered glasshouse or similar<br />

structure. If you are just starting<br />

to sow your seeds indoors, use a<br />

seed mix especially designed for<br />

germinating and growing from<br />

seeds.<br />

In the flower garden<br />

Annuals like dwarf cineraria<br />

are an excellent choice for late<br />

winter, and early spring flowering.<br />

Flowering annuals that<br />

overlap the seasons e.g., pansies,<br />

violas, and alyssum can now be<br />

planted.<br />

SKILL: If<br />

you can’t<br />

get outside<br />

because of the<br />

conditions,<br />

repotting<br />

houseplants<br />

is a good<br />

alternative.<br />

Garden centres are now well<br />

stocked with a range of interesting<br />

flowering perennials (plants<br />

that live for more than one<br />

growing season), and this is the<br />

perfect time for planting. Prepare<br />

the soil thoroughly with the addition<br />

of fresh compost.<br />

time to carry out those spring tasks<br />

Position the new perennials carefully as<br />

some are quite vigorous in growth habit<br />

and can smother plants growing nearby.<br />

Plan your summer flower garden carefully<br />

and try growing different annuals<br />

and perennials this coming season.<br />

Strawberries<br />

Strawberry plants are in active growth<br />

producing those distinctive small, single<br />

white flowers that eventually mature into<br />

delicious berries. Towards the end of the<br />

month as soils begin to warm up, place<br />

crushed bark or pea straw around the<br />

plants to create a ‘clean bed’ for developing<br />

fruit. By mid-October, strawberry<br />

plants that are growing on raised mounds<br />

will start providing edible fruit.<br />

Fruit trees<br />

Give pip and stone fruit trees, apricots,<br />

apples, nectarines, peaches, and plums<br />

a final spray of a copper compound as<br />

a last protective measure against fungal<br />

infections. It is still a little early to apply<br />

fertiliser, from mid-October onwards is<br />

the recommended time.<br />

Rose care<br />

As with many other plants, towards<br />

the end of <strong>September</strong>, the first of the new<br />

season’s growth will appear on ‘bare’ rose<br />

bushes. Early in <strong>September</strong> spray with<br />

the final protective fungicide or copper<br />

compound and ensure that all last<br />

season’s leaves are removed from the rose<br />

garden to prevent reinfection of black<br />

spot and rust. The addition of fresh compost<br />

around rose bushes will encourage<br />

strong, healthy growth.<br />

SMALL BEGINNINGS: Start sowing<br />

your summer vegetables indoors.<br />

Right: Place crushed bark or pea<br />

straw around strawberry plants to<br />

create a ‘clean bed’ for developing<br />

fruit.<br />

Hedges<br />

Time to give hedges a quick ‘tidy up’<br />

before spring growth begins. Sometimes<br />

forgotten, hedge plants, like all plants in<br />

the home garden require regular care.<br />

The best hedges are those that are regularly<br />

pruned.<br />

Lawns<br />

Many lawns will still be too wet for any<br />

repair work. Moss may have appeared<br />

in wet, shady areas in the lawn. Don’t<br />

worry as this will burn off during the hot,<br />

dry summer months. However, if some<br />

areas of the lawn have become very wet<br />

or boggy over winter, you may need to<br />

install additional drainage to remedy this.<br />

<strong>September</strong> weather can be up and down,<br />

so proceed with caution when planting your<br />

veggie seedlings. The frosts can still hit and<br />

damage young seedlings. If you haven’t<br />

yet prepared your gardens for planting, dig<br />

over organic compost and sheep pellets to<br />

give add vital organic nutrients. If you are<br />

starting a raised garden from scratch, you<br />

can’t go past our Veggie Garden Mix.<br />

Having a good quality soil is key for<br />

growing a bumper crop. For leafy, above<br />

the ground produce, choose Intelligro<br />

Veggie Garden Mix. For root crops,<br />

(potatoes, radishes etc) choose Intelligro<br />

Garden Soil Mix. These plants do best in a<br />

mix that has a soil component in it.<br />

Vegepods<br />

These are a great way to grow a garden all year<br />

Hybrid SUV with a point of difference<br />

IF YOU THINK the cost of fuel is<br />

taxing the household budget now,<br />

I read recently that motor industry<br />

commentators were expecting<br />

prices to fluctuate for months to<br />

come.<br />

That’s where electric vehicles<br />

and hybrids come in, cutting<br />

down the use of petrol is on the<br />

minds of almost everyone and<br />

there is no better time to buy a<br />

hybrid. What’s more there is no<br />

better time to make that purchase<br />

the new generation Mitsubishi<br />

Outlander PHEV; from $60,990 all<br />

three models in the PHEV range<br />

qualify for a $5750 New Zealand<br />

Government Clean Car Rebate.<br />

This evaluation focuses on the<br />

range-topping VRX that is listed at<br />

$73,990 and was carrying a couple<br />

of high-grade extras – light grey<br />

cross-stitched leather trim and<br />

diamond flake paint that together<br />

adds around an extra $1500.<br />

By the time you add in on-road<br />

costs, the Outlander PHEV in this<br />

form is sitting towards the luxury<br />

car bracket and it’s fair to say that<br />

it is very much a luxury model,<br />

it has an extremely high level of<br />

fitment and the cabin area is plush<br />

and comforting – a lot to do with<br />

the prestige of that light leather.<br />

I particularly like it and I like the<br />

feel from inside, it is Mitsubishi’s<br />

flagship SUV and it’s worthy of the<br />

near $80k price tag.<br />

What is also very tempting<br />

is Mitsubishi’s fuel use claim of<br />

1.6-litres per 100km. Sure, that’s<br />

at best possible usage, but like all<br />

hybrids the Outlander is frugal, it<br />

is so thrifty that it is hard to fathom<br />

that we are talking about a big SUV<br />

that has seven seats (XLS and VRX)<br />

and a lot of off-the-seal potential.<br />

There are dials and buttons that can<br />

quickly alter the driveline settings<br />

so that cross-country travel can<br />

be tailored to suit the impending<br />

conditions.<br />

As its nomenclature suggests,<br />

the Outlander PHEV is a plugin<br />

hybrid. No surprises there,<br />

OWNERS OF the<br />

Christchurch Mitsubishi<br />

dealership Mathew<br />

and Nicola Barr have<br />

been presented with a<br />

Diamond Dealer award.<br />

Out of the 59 New<br />

Zealand Mitsubishi<br />

dealerships, Christchurch<br />

Mitsubishi was<br />

one of nine dealerships<br />

to be awarded for <strong>2022</strong>,<br />

and the only South<br />

Island dealership to win<br />

an award.<br />

The dealership ended<br />

the financial year with<br />

an average of four new<br />

vehicle sales a day. In<br />

addition, the Barrs built<br />

and opened a second<br />

dealership in Rangiora in<br />

2021.<br />

“The Diamond Dealer award was<br />

an outstanding result achieved by the<br />

whole team at Christchurch Mitsubishi,”<br />

Mitsubishi launched the PHEV<br />

here in 20<strong>14</strong> and since then it has<br />

become the plug-in benchmark.<br />

It stole the lead, and eight years<br />

later it is still turning heads with<br />

its technology and quality. It is all<br />

new for <strong>2022</strong>, there is a fresh, curvy<br />

shape and its interior has been<br />

redesigned to provide optimum<br />

user-friendly status.<br />

As plug-ins have become more<br />

popular, so has my ability to<br />

relax with them. Charging is easy<br />

and, what’s more, Mitsubishi has<br />

provided a home charging cable<br />

of decent length – 5m to be exact.<br />

I don’t have a designated wallbox<br />

or charging system at my home,<br />

so it’s a matter of using the long<br />

cable and plugging into a standard<br />

three-pin socket located on the<br />

wall of my garage. It’s a fair distance<br />

to the car which is why the long<br />

cable is so important to me; and,<br />

of course, a type 2 to type 2 cable<br />

is also included for when you have<br />

the need to connect to a designated<br />

public-use charge port.<br />

The distance you can travel on<br />

electric only mode is claimed by<br />

Mitsubishi to be up to 84km, that<br />

sits well with the readout during<br />

my time with the test car although<br />

on a cold morning that distance<br />

is slightly reduced, but with the<br />

warmth of the day it lengthens.<br />

There’s no fear of range anxiety<br />

either, if battery capacity is<br />

depleted the petrol engine kicks in<br />

and normal transmission resumes,<br />

fossil fuel drive is motivated. On a<br />

full tank a readout indicates around<br />

500km can be travelled before the<br />

petrol tank needs replenishing.<br />

The Outlander’s hybrid driveline<br />

is far from simple, it’s a twin motor<br />

system, one up front and one at the<br />

rear, there’s also a 2.4-litre fourcylinder<br />

engine that drives through<br />

an eight-step continuously variable<br />

transmission.<br />

Mitsubishi claims a power output<br />

of 98kW with 195Nm of torque,<br />

while these figures may seem a<br />

little modest you have to take into<br />

SUCCESS: Mathew Barr (left)<br />

and Steve Hammond with the<br />

Mitsubishi Diamond Dealer<br />

award.<br />

MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER VRX: Choice of conventional engine or a plug-in hybrid driveline.<br />

account there is a wealth of power<br />

and torque through electrical<br />

supply pumping the figures up by<br />

85kW/100kW and 255Nm/195Nm<br />

front to rear respectively. You can<br />

sure feel the surge of the latter<br />

under acceleration, the combined<br />

force from the engine and motor<br />

is quite vivid, especially in power<br />

mode.<br />

Out of all the drive modes<br />

the one I liked the most was the<br />

designated one-pedal EV mode, it<br />

ushers in acceleration willingly, but<br />

also provides solid braking impetus<br />

as soon as the throttle pedal is<br />

disengaged, it’s quite a reassuring<br />

feeling.<br />

I took the Outlander PHEV on<br />

much of my normal route inland<br />

towards Darfield, the weather was<br />

grim with heavy rain and wind,<br />

but I felt entirely comfortable with<br />

Chch dealership wins Mitsubishi award<br />

Barr said.<br />

“These awards are<br />

ferociously competitive<br />

and this goes to<br />

show the high level of<br />

customer service the<br />

team at Christchurch<br />

Mitsubishi offers.”<br />

General manager of<br />

the dealership, Steve<br />

Hammond, said everyone<br />

at the dealership<br />

was thrilled with<br />

the award.<br />

“These are awarded<br />

for dealership<br />

excellence in all<br />

aspects of the business<br />

– service, parts,<br />

sales and customer<br />

service. We are so<br />

proud of the whole<br />

team at Christchurch<br />

Mitsubishi, who work tirelessly every day.<br />

This award is recognition for all their work.<br />

This award is for them,” Hammond said.<br />

connection between driver and the<br />

road, a lot of that has to do with<br />

the complexity of the suspension,<br />

while the spring and damper rates<br />

are biased towards that luxury feel<br />

I alluded to earlier, there is enough<br />

compliance in the system so that<br />

bumps are ruts are dealt to, but<br />

stability isn’t compromised, the<br />

body structure is held level.<br />

I had the evaluation car in my<br />

care for a week and I very early<br />

grew to enjoy its rather special<br />

characteristics, not only is it more<br />

than just one vehicle, all that it<br />

can achieve it does so very well.<br />

Sure, the two rear seats are a bit<br />

confining for those large of stature,<br />

but it’s no different to any other<br />

seven-seater of this size, rear<br />

load space is still very generous<br />

at 472-litres with the third row of<br />

seats flat – spanning to 1373-litres<br />

with the second row down.<br />

If the Outlander PHEV is out<br />

of reach financially, bear in mind<br />

that much the same driveline is<br />

available in the Eclipse Cross,<br />

Mitsubishi’s mid-size SUV, and<br />

from $52,990 it is a lot more<br />

affordable. It also qualifies for a<br />

$5750 rebate.<br />

I know two people who own an<br />

Outlander hybrid and both are<br />

thrilled with their purchase. That’s<br />

no surprise, the Outlander has long<br />

been one of my favourite SUVs,<br />

and the hybrid version is just the<br />

icing on the cake.<br />

Wednesday <strong>September</strong> <strong>14</strong> <strong>2022</strong> <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> 49<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> is my home, I grew up here<br />

on a farm and now live in Darfield<br />

with Liz and our daughter Elliott.<br />

Whether your story in <strong>Selwyn</strong> is<br />

generations old or just beginning,<br />

I hope you share a sense of<br />

pride in our heritage, love for<br />

our community today, and<br />

a heart of responsibility<br />

for our future.<br />

That's the reason why<br />

I’m running to continue<br />

serving as Mayor and<br />

I appreciate your<br />

continued support.


50 <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> Wednesday <strong>September</strong> <strong>14</strong> <strong>2022</strong><br />

Our <strong>Selwyn</strong> Opportunity<br />

Last year more New Zealanders<br />

moved to <strong>Selwyn</strong> than anywhere<br />

else in New Zealand. They did this<br />

for their family or business’s stake<br />

in our success.<br />

There are lots of changes currently<br />

forced on our community by new<br />

legislation. I will lead a council that<br />

does not get distracted by what<br />

we can’t control but continues to<br />

focus on what we do best and<br />

how we shape ourselves as the<br />

most desired place to bring up a<br />

family and grow a business.<br />

Our largest industries are agriculture, manufacturing, and construction, and new enterprises<br />

are popping up all the time. Our council is supportive of this and takes an enabling role in<br />

administering rules to keep people safe.<br />

Our investment in Izone kicked off our industrial and logistics journey. Likewise the Rolleston<br />

Town Centre will see a new range of opportunities for businesses to start up and relocate to<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>. It means more opportunity closer to home for those of us who live here.<br />

Boosting our Next Generation<br />

Like all of New Zealand, our<br />

population will age over time<br />

– however, in recent years our<br />

average age has continued to<br />

get younger and now sits at 36<br />

years. These stats vary from<br />

town to town and you know<br />

this depending on which streets<br />

you regularly walk down. I want<br />

to see all our people fulfill their<br />

potential and be well.<br />

One of my roles is to make<br />

connections and weave<br />

pathways of opportunity for<br />

others to walk. That’s why<br />

I’ve supported young people on many different programs, visits, and experiences. We<br />

have awesome local educational opportunities with fantastic schools across our District<br />

and of course, Lincoln University.<br />

Over the next three years I will strengthen partnership links with the Ministries of<br />

Education, Social Development, and Business Innovation and Employment.<br />

Early in the New Term<br />

• Regional collaboration via the Ca<br />

• Support for rural economic grow<br />

• Enhanced relationships with Man<br />

• Making key appointments for Co<br />

• Ensuring the <strong>Selwyn</strong> voice is stro<br />

• Effective preparations for district<br />

biodiversity, regional water, tran<br />

• Grow opportunities for emergen<br />

Rural Communities<br />

I grew up on a farm and know the strong<br />

sense of identity our rural community has.<br />

I enjoy the open space, seeing familiar<br />

faces while ducking down to Four Square<br />

for supplies, and talking with Errol as I get<br />

Elliott an oversized ice cream after school.<br />

This sense of belonging and community is<br />

something to nurture and protect.<br />

Our rural community has led many changes<br />

in recent years through more efficient use<br />

of water, best farm management practices,<br />

increased regulation, and changing<br />

international markets. We have protected our outstan<br />

enhanced biodiversity.<br />

The Food and Fibre sector has kept our economy heal<br />

and we need to ensure its bright future is realised. Co<br />

proud that farmers in <strong>Selwyn</strong> continue to be leaders fo<br />

Our council did not rezone new rural land for urban ho<br />

government legislation has opened doors for private d<br />

developer led and community planned urban growth a<br />

New development pays for new infrastructure and a g<br />

Growth is a good thing but we need to intensify existi<br />

the city along transport corridors.

ergency services to collaborate<br />

ties are Important<br />

One of the best things about living in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> is the mountains, whether viewing<br />

from afar or exploring within. Likewise our<br />

rivers are cherished and provide plenty<br />

of activity and recreation. But our<br />

environment and climate are changing.<br />

Climate change brings new challenges<br />

and an urgency to action. We need to<br />

understand managed retreat, changing<br />

land use, and more frequent heavy<br />

rainfalls. Climate adaptation is a key<br />

component of Council’s decision making and planning. We need all government, businesses<br />

and families to make shifts in the way we do things. Our rivers need ECan to fund and<br />

complete preventative management work including gravel extraction.<br />

We embed carbon in our infrastructure so must avoid harmful long term outcomes from short<br />

term cost savings. I led the establishment of the Darfield and Leeston subsidised bus services<br />

and I will continue to advocate for their expansion. An enhanced public and active transport<br />

system is required to lower the number of vehicle kilometers we travel each year.<br />

With the mayors of our region I launched ItsTimeCanterbury.co.nz to lift understanding and<br />

help shape our local conversations about the climate and more is required in the new term.<br />

Track Record of Delivery<br />

ur outstanding natural landscapes and<br />

nomy healthy for the last few years through Covid<br />

alised. Continued change is inevitable and I’m<br />

leaders for our nation.<br />

r urban housing in our District Plan, however new<br />

r private development. The balance between<br />

n growth adds complexity and opportunity.<br />

re and a growing population brings new diversity.<br />

sify existing areas whilst going up and towards<br />

As <strong>Selwyn</strong> grows we need to<br />

ensure community facilities are built and<br />

renewed at the same pace. I first ran to<br />

be Mayor out of frustration at too much<br />

talking and little delivery. I’m proud of<br />

leading a Council that listens, discusses,<br />

and now delivers real results for <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

The Council I lead has delivered The<br />

Health Hub, <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Centre,<br />

Aquatics extension, football and<br />

hockey turfs and Te Ara Atea. We have<br />

improved our water and waste water<br />

networks, expanded our waste and resource recovery options and when the Government told<br />

us our roads were too good for them to spend more on we disagreed and have increased our<br />

own contribution to get closer to your expectations.<br />

Much of this focus has been on Rolleston and catching up with its growth. This needs to<br />

continue but in the next three years we need to elevate the focus on other big projects across<br />

the district, including the Lincoln Gerald Street upgrade, the Leeston Library and Community<br />

Building, the Darfield Pool and indoor courts, a new Prebbleton facility and an Arthur’s Pass<br />

to Taumutu cycleway linking our towns and providing activity across our District.

Sam’s Vision<br />

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

I want <strong>Selwyn</strong> to continue to be an awesome place! We have great<br />

natural spaces, a wonderful heritage and an exciting future. I’m often<br />

asked what I will do in the next 3 years for <strong>Selwyn</strong> if re-elected. We<br />

need to lift our sights out of the election cycle and our own personal<br />

futures, and focus on the type of place we want our grandchildren to<br />

enjoy. Nearly a quarter of <strong>Selwyn</strong> is under the age of 15.<br />

In the new term of council I want to see greater local influence and more<br />

inclusive processes for shaping our future. Nearly half of our population<br />

didn’t live here 10 years ago. We need all those new thoughts and ideas<br />

to maximise our potential. As your Mayor I will continue to deliver on our<br />

communities aspirations to be the district of opportunities that is safe,<br />

prosperous, inclusive and fun.<br />

Voting documents will be sent<br />

from Friday 16 <strong>September</strong><br />

The Home You Deserve!<br />

Bedrooms: 4 Bathrooms: 2 Garages: 2<br />

Everyone deserves a place that has that feeling of ‘home’ and<br />

this immaculately kept, spacious four-bedroom home exudes<br />

a sense of welcome from the moment you walk through the<br />

door. Warm and neutrally-toned throughout, the highlight<br />

of the home is the relationship between the living zone and<br />

beautifully manicured outdoors. Vast doors open across one<br />

wall to the courtyard and neatly fenced lawn, offering a secure<br />

and distinctly fabulous space, that will be the perfect spot<br />

to enjoy summer dining, relaxing in the spa or entertaining<br />

friends. The home benefits from a clever layout that separates<br />

the functional end nicely from the restful wing, gifting children<br />

or those who wish to retire early, a peaceful night sleep, while<br />

you host guests in the open plan living. The kitchen is an<br />

entertainer’s delight with large, textured stone bench tops<br />

and large scullery. Particularly lovely is the main bedroom<br />

suite, where a ranch slider to outdoors provides a breezy<br />

quiet space to retire to in the cool of the evening and a walk-in<br />

wardrobe ensures organised weekday mornings. The home is<br />

completed with under tile heating in the tiled bathrooms, pull<br />

down attic storage with 5x5 floor, large separate laundry with<br />

great storage and an internal access, double garage with drive<br />

through. This neat as a pin home will tick every box on your<br />

wish list. Call to arrange your private inspection, or we would<br />

love to see you at our upcoming open homes.<br />

for the popular Clearview Primary school and the proximity to a bevy of recreational destinations - including the<br />

indulgent swim spa also add to the appeal. Tranquillity is also plentiful, with a stream, productive fruit and nut trees<br />

and magnificently established gardens. Conveniently located with Prebbleton and Halswell only five minutes away.<br />

This beautiful property will be hard to resist.<br />

Get your home noticed<br />

It takes more than good photography to help sell a<br />

home. You’ll want your home to look attractive and<br />

appealing for a potential home buyer so check out<br />

these following tips to get your home ready for real<br />

estate photography and open homes...<br />

• First impressions count: Clear away shoes, coats and other items to make your front<br />

entrance look clean and welcoming.<br />

• Create natural light: Open all curtains and/or blinds; turn on lights for open home<br />

days.<br />

• Keep it clean: A clean house and well cared for section will be far more appealing to<br />

a buyer; get rid of cobwebs; shine the taps; polish the windows and doorknobs; wash<br />

and vacuum the floors.<br />

• Stay fresh: Don’t allow stale cooking and living smells to linger – open windows daily,<br />

display a vase of sweet smelling flowers, and if need be an occasional spray with a can<br />

of air freshener. Don’t burn incense as the buyer may wonder what you are trying to<br />

cover up.<br />

• De-clutter every room: This is the most important. Clean counters, tables, coffee<br />

tables and wall units. Clutter really attracts the eye and takes away from the beauty of<br />

the home.<br />

• Kitchen/Dining: Remove all unnecessary items; keep the benches clean and clear;<br />

remove all used tea towels and dishcloths; use flowers to brighten up the dining table.<br />

• Bathroom: We all have clutter in the bathroom – toothbrushes, creams, toothpaste<br />

etc. Before the photographer arrives (or potential buyers) put all the clutter into a<br />

small box, which can easily be stored out of sight. Place clean colour co-ordinated<br />

towels, neatly folded, onto the towel rail.<br />

• Bedroom: Use colour coordinated bedcovers and linen; plump up your pillows;<br />

straighten the valance; put all clothing and person items out of sight.<br />

• Office: It’s often hard to keep this room perfectly tidy but try to keep it as orderly as<br />

possible.<br />

• Keep corners free of clutter: This helps make a room look bigger and therefore more<br />

spacious.<br />

• Make your room look bigger: rearrange furniture to create more floor space.<br />

• Add colour: If your house is neutral in colour, try adding small touches of colour with<br />

fresh flowers. Another quick color fix is to use cushions but don’t go overboard. Red<br />

works well against neutral backgrounds as do bright blues and greens. Just remember to<br />

keep it minimal, pick one colour per room, and it will work.<br />

• Move toys out of living areas: Keep them in the rumpus room or the children’s<br />

bedrooms.<br />

• Boxes or small storage units: Stack them in one area or the spare bedroom. Better<br />

not to take a picture of the spare bedroom than have boxes or storage boxes in each<br />

room. Better yet – stack them against one wall and this way the photographer can<br />

avoid that wall when taking the picture.<br />

• Check your cords, cables and wires: Tuck and hide those cords away or simply<br />

unplug them.<br />

• Keep pets out of sight: Prospective buyers don’t want pets leaping at them or they<br />

may be even allergic to pet hair, so keep them out of sight or away for photography<br />

and open home days.<br />

• Clean up your section and garage: Keep lawns mowed, gardens weeded, hoses and<br />

wheelbarrow stored out of sight; take excess rubbish to the tip; and arrange your<br />

garage to look as spacious and orderly as possible.<br />

Don’t burn incense as the buyer may wonder<br />

what you are trying to cover up.<br />

SELLING YOUR HOME?<br />

Potential buyers are<br />

likely to be living in your<br />

neighbourhood, it’s an<br />

area that they already love<br />

and are actively seeking<br />

to stay in. That’s why it<br />

makes sense to advertise<br />

your property in the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Property Guide.<br />

Space key to show home’s popularity<br />

If there is one word to describe<br />

the Trident Homes show home it is<br />

spacious – and there’s plenty of it. What<br />

is interesting about this home is that<br />

the team hasn’t gone for neutral décor<br />

– there is plenty of contrasting patterns<br />

and colours which not only make the<br />

house more eye catching but also makes<br />

it feel like a home you could live in.<br />

Practical things like an amazing<br />

amount of storage, the washing line<br />

directly outside the laundry door, the<br />

division between the living and sleeping<br />

areas all add up to make this a home<br />

worth viewing next time you are in<br />

Lanner Drive, Rolleston.<br />

All four bedrooms are at least double<br />

with built-in wardrobes and space<br />

saving sliding doors. The sunny master<br />

features a walk-in robe which opens in<br />

to the ensuite. A separate family toilet<br />

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections<br />

in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

makes life easier for growing families.<br />

Half of the home is taken up by a huge<br />

living/dining/kitchen area with a large<br />

separate lounge that can be closed off<br />

with sliding doors and features a gas fire<br />

for those colder days.<br />

In the kitchen area, the stunning<br />

bench top and island really makes a<br />

statement. Tap ware is from Methven<br />

and all the appliances are from Fisher &<br />

Paykel.<br />

The separate laundry with access<br />

outdoors doubles as a mudroom with<br />

a built-in seat and a variety of storage<br />

options.<br />

Outside the well-grown garden<br />

provides a pleasant outlook and the<br />

surrounding deck is easily accessed from<br />

not only the living areas but also the<br />

master bedroom.<br />

Trident Homes promises a Master<br />

Builders 10-year guarantee with a<br />

warranty and maintenance period<br />

and can manage the entire building<br />

experience from the initial planning<br />

through to completion.<br />

What can I do if there’s a<br />

problem with my new home?<br />

Buying something as big as a house is a big deal that can<br />

have a serious impact on your family and financial wellbeing.<br />

Real Estate Authority (REA) say this<br />

is why it’s important for buyers to do<br />

as much homework as they can before<br />

buying a property.<br />

We believe it’s much better to spend a<br />

few hundred dollars on an independent<br />

report by an accredited building<br />

inspector than face having to spend<br />

thousands of dollars on fixing any issues<br />

after the fact.<br />

It can be tempting to settle for the easy<br />

option of using a pre-prepared report, but<br />

if you haven’t paid for it yourself you have<br />

no way of ensuring that it’s legitimate<br />

or being able to take action against the<br />

inspector for an inadequate assessment.<br />

If you’re looking to buy, it’s smart to<br />

find out as much as you can about the<br />

property, including getting someone to<br />

help you understand the outcome of any<br />

report on the building or land.<br />

In some cases, issues are noted on<br />

property reports but buyers are in such a<br />

hurry that they miss them.<br />

If a report uncovers an issue, get legal<br />

advice first if you want to negotiate with<br />

the seller on price.<br />

If you end up buying a property and<br />

discover a serious issue that you think the<br />

seller or the real estate agent failed to tell<br />

you about, the first step is to write down<br />

what happened when you bought the<br />

property.<br />

Gather all the relevant documentation,<br />

such as the building report, the LIM and<br />

the sale and purchase agreement.<br />

“If the property was sold by a licensed<br />

real estate agent, make notes of any<br />

conversations you had with them. If<br />

the property was sold privately, make<br />

notes of any dealings with the seller. Add<br />

any new information you have about<br />

the property, such as a building report<br />

or assessment that notes the problems<br />

you’ve found.”<br />

Think too about what your best-case<br />

scenario outcome is: do you want an<br />

apology, compensation, or remediation<br />

(or all three)?<br />

It’s important to get legal advice to fully<br />

understand your options.<br />

A lawyer will advise you on whether<br />

you have a case against the seller and<br />

what your next move should be, based on<br />

the information you’ve gathered.<br />

If appropriate, they can help you<br />

negotiate with the seller or act against<br />

them. Be aware that you may not be in a<br />

very strong position unless you can prove<br />

that the seller or the real estate agent<br />

knowingly covered up the issue.<br />

If it appears that the real estate agent is<br />

responsible in some way, it’s best that you<br />

deal with them directly.<br />

If you can’t resolve things this way,<br />

the REA handles complaints against<br />

licensed real estate agents and we can<br />

also help you understand expectations<br />

on real estate agents regarding disclosure<br />

of property defects. Check out rea.govt.<br />

nz for more information on making<br />

complaints.<br />
