Money

taken

after big

pokie win

• By Barry Clarke

A BAR patron who won $1200

on the pokies may have been

targeted by thieves moments after

she collected the money.

A group of men who were in

the bar at the same time are the

focus of police inquiries. It is

believed they watched her being

paid, and then quickly swooped.

The incident happened at The

Famous Grouse Hotel in Lincoln

two weeks ago.

After she was paid out at the

bar, the men who had been

sitting nearby went over and

congratulated her. While she was

distracted the money disappeared

from her handbag. She only

realised it was gone after she left

the hotel.

Police have taken CCTV

security camera footage from the

hotel which shows the men going

over to the woman and mobbing

her in a congratulatory way. The

footage also captures a hand from

one of the men going towards the

bag.

Police say they may have

identified one of the group but

aren’t saying anymore about

the incident. The Selwyn Times

understands the men are from

the Amberley area.

“There is so

surrounded by mature trees,

“There’s also the large

homestead with nine unique

yet stately bedrooms and five

sleek modern bathrooms. The

homestead also boasts beautiful

family and commercial kitchens,

a formal dining room, sitting

room, and billiard room with

the original rimu and kauri timbers

retained throughout.

“There is a complete range of

outbuildings plus substantial

equestrian facilities with a

dressage arena and stable

complex. The fertile flats are

utilised for cattle grazing and

are supported by a set of cattle

yards.”

The original home, designed

by renowned Christchurch

architect Cecil Wood, was badly

damaged in the 2010 earthquakes,

and has since undergone

a number of renovations.

“The previous owners who

purchased this home after the

earthquakes spent over $3 million

on the restoration of this

beautiful homestead,” Cameron

said.

“Over the years there have

been extra additions such as the

Cameron said the property

would appeal to a broad range

people.

“The property has multiple

options as a grand old homestead

she said.

“Therefore, buyers will see the

home differently depending on

what they believe the potential

the property has and what they

can do.”

The property is being offered

for sale via deadline sale, closing

Lucky escape after car hits cyclist

It was the first

time Clutterbuck

had experienced an incident like

it over 25 years of riding his bike.

He was not the only cyclist

involved in a crash this year.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport

Agency recorded 65 crashes

involving cyclists between

January 1 and August 9, with one

of those being fatal, 15 serious,

42 minor and six resulting in no

injuries.

Clutterbuck was dazed after

landing on the bonnet of the

black Mazda 3 that hit him as it

came round a bend.

“[The driver] did come over

and asked if I was okay. I told

her that I was fine and she pretty

Figures from ACC showed

there were 2142 new and 3098

injuries in Christchurch between

January 1 and July 31.

Police confirmed they had

received a report following the

incident involving Clutterbuck.

However, no charges have been

FIRE CREWS were called

to a blaze in the roof

of a suburban home in

Prebbleton last Wednesday.

Four fire appliances were

used to fight the blaze,

which broke out inside the

two-storey house on Guilder

Drive about 10am.

The fire appeared to be

contained to the roof of the

house. It was brought under

control by about 11am.

Firefighters could be seen

removing some of the cladding

on the roof in order to

douse the flames.

A neighbour said no one

was in the house at the time

of the fire. It is not known

what caused the blaze.

Smoke from the fire

could be seen from as far

away as the Christchurch

Police were also at the

scene but had left the house

before the fire was brought

Entertainers Los Angeles-bound

for world talent showcase

• By Susan Sandys

THE STARRY lights of Los

Angeles are beckoning for three

Selwyn residents, who have been

selected to compete in a world

talent showcase.

Singer Nicole Schaap, 29, and

musical theatre performers

Conrad Goddard, 16, and Bella

Newcombe, 18, will be among

up to 20 New Zealanders at the

annual World Championships

of Performing Arts, to be held at

Disneyland in July next year.

“When I found out, I was

super-stoked,” said Schaap, who

is a drum teacher and musician

at Rolleston.

Auditions are currently underway

around the world for the

championships, where entertainment

professionals will judge,

award industry medals and

scholarships, deliver seminars

and may even sign talent.

Schaap is lead singer and

drummer for Rolleston-based

alternative rock and soul band

Moonflower, where she performs

alongside her husband and bass

player Josh Fairless and guitarist

and singer Hamish Ellis. She said

she would be getting out of her

comfort zone at the championships,

as she would be leaving

her drumkit behind.

“It’s a little bit different for

me, because I’m used to having

my drumkit in front of me,” she

said.

But she was looking forward to

showcasing her ability to deliver

“big belting vocals.” Schaap said

her idols were Aretha Franklin

and Ann Wilson from Heart,

and they were also the two

singers people often told her she

sounded like.

She planned to sing at least

one of her original songs at the

championships, as well as It’s

a Man’s Man’s Man’s World

by James Brown and River by

Bishop Briggs.

She was hoping to come back

with a medal in at least one of

the song categories and make

next year in Los Angeles. She will be joined by Conrad Goddard and Bella Newcombe.

music industry contacts. She

plans to take her mum with her

and will be fundraising towards

airfares and accommodation.

Goddard is a year 12 student at

Lincoln High School. Last year

he won the best actor award in

the Canterbury Sheilah Winn

Shakespeare Festival, while he

has played main roles in the junior

musical theatre CentreStage

Rolleston productions of Legally

Blonde and High School Musical.

Last month he came fifth in the

world in the international Chinese

Water Cube Cup singing

competition.

Conrad said he liked both acting

and singing, and was taking

dance classes as well.

As he looked ahead to tertiary

education, he was torn between

pursuing his love of physics and

languages, and his love of acting

and singing. But he would be

drawn to the latter, if he was successful

at the championships in

being awarded a scholarship to

attend an American academy of

performing arts.

“I’m just really happy to be

going, it’s such an amazing opportunity,”

Conrad said.

Bella Newcombe is a student

at Rolleston College. She has

enjoyed performing in musical

theatre productions ever since

she began singing lessons in year

9, having starred in productions

at her school and with Kirwee

Players.

She was especially looking

forward to meeting fellow

performers around the world at

the championships. She would

be travelling with her singing

teacher Jacquie Soper who was

the one who had suggested she

audition in the first place.

“It was surreal (to be selected),”

Newcombe said.

“I was sitting in my car then I

saw the email, I clicked on it and

I just remember crying and running

inside and saying: ‘Mum I

got in’.”

She expected to be out and

about busking in Selwyn as she

fundraised towards an approximate

$8500 goal for expenses

such as airfares and accommodation.

WCOPA New Zealand

spokeswoman Dina Janse

van Rensburg said 39 people

had so far auditioned around

the country, 19 of whom had

qualified. Fourteen of these had

so far confirmed they would

attend. The selection process was

still ongoing.

“We estimate that the team

will consist of between 15 and 20

contestants after auditions are

done. Year after year team New

Zealand bring home numerous

medals and scholarships,” Janse

van Rensburg said.

The 150th anniversary of

the consecration of the

All Saints’ Church will be

celebrated on November

5 and 6. Prebbleton

Heritage secretary Sandra

Serra reports

NEXT MONTH marks the

150th anniversary of the

consecration of the first All

Saints’ Church in Prebbleton.

To help celebrate the milestone

Prebbleton Heritage is providing

a display at the church.

The church has a long history

on the site at the corner of

Springs and Blakes Rds beginning

with the donation, by John

N Tosswill, of the land itself

for the purposes of building a

church and providing a school to

support a township.

The land provided the place

where a chapel/school was built

– a school during the week and a

chapel on Sundays.

The building quickly became

inadequate, and fundraising began

to build the first All Saints’

Church on the site with the

foundation stone being laid in

July 1871 with much pomp and

ceremony.

Building progressed quickly

and a year later services were being

held there. Although the interior

was not entirely finished a

service to consecrate the church

was held on All Saints’ Day,

November 1, 1872, and it is this

occasion which we are marking

150 years later.

The church was later extended

in 1877 to accommodate the

growing congregation. A peal

of, eventually, five bells was installed,

along with a pipe organ.

All was well until the night of

March 21, 1906, when a fire destroyed

the whole of the church

and everything within it.

It included the parish registers,

destroying vital records of the

baptisms, marriages and burials

which had taken place at the

who asked her all about

school and her own cricket

matches.

“It was awesome. I like his

special celebrations when he gets

100 runs or a really good catch.

He gets really excited,” Andee

said.

These special celebrations are

something Andee has adopted for

her own matches and she’s had

plenty to celebrate. Last season,

chapel/school and church prior

to 1906.

Fundraising began immediately,

and together with insurance

money, enabled the rebuild of

the church to commence and

15 months later, the second All

Saints’ Church was opened for

worship on July 11, 1907. The

rebuild included the replacement

of the organ, one which

is recognised by The NZ Organ

Preservation Trust as being of

significance, and in 1913 a new

peal of five bells was installed.

These were said to be the finest

in Canterbury and are still being

rung today.

There is much to tell of the

history of this church, the first

church being designed by Benjamin

Mountfort and the second

by his son Cyril, and our display

gives a more detailed account of

this history.

The public are invited to come

and see for themselves, both the

church interior and the display

on Saturday, November 5, 10am-

3.30pm and on Sunday, November

6, from 1.30-3.30pm.

The churchyard has many

stories of those buried there over

the last 150+ years and there will

be a cemetery tour available to

join at 10.30am and 1.30pm on

Saturday and 1.30pm on Sunday.

The tour will begin at the earliest

headstone in the cemetery,

that of Lucy Kimber who died

in 1869 aged just 23. We then

move on to hear about William

Andee took a hat-trick when

she bowled out three boys in a

row.

“I’ve never bowled out

three boys before so I was

really proud. I did some cartwheels.”

While she has a knack for

bowling, batting is her favourite

role.

“I like batting because I can

smack the ball really hard.”

She had enjoyed watching Phillips

make some big hits during

the game, and was raring to go

for her own season.

Andee said she wanted to encourage

other girls to give cricket

a go.

“I just like playing it because

it’s lots of fun.”

24-hour mental health

charity run will benefit youth

SELWYN’S EMERGENCY services

personnel will be running in connecting

shifts over 24 hours to raise money for

youth mental health.

The Emergency Services Run For

Charity will be held at Rolleston’s Selwyn

Sports Centre from noon on November 5

to noon on November 6.

Police officers, firefighters, personnel

from St John, Civil Defence, the army,

along with some teachers from Clearview

School, will make up a contingent of 45.

Organiser Senior Constable Glenn Dawson

of Rolleston said the goal was to raise

$20,000 for I AM HOPE and the charity’s

Gumboot Friday initiative which provides

free counselling for 15 to 24-year-olds. All

funds raised would stay in Canterbury.

“As emergency services staff, we unfortunately

have front row seats to witness

our mental health and suicide incidents,”

Dawson said.

Youth receiving quicker counselling

could reduce their distress and make them

less likely to need emergency services.

Dawson ran a similar event in February,

where eight emergency services personnel

participated and about $6000 was raised.

Each emergency service group will run

alongside their colleagues, and be on the

track for four one-hour blocks. For example,

police will run 4-5pm and 10-11pm on

the Saturday, and 4-5am and 10-11am on

the Sunday.

The aim was to push out of their comfort

zones, Dawson said.

“For us, it’s just one foot in front of the

other, and we can see the light at the end

of the tunnel. But for the many out there

who are struggling, they can not see that

light, and feel they don’t have a way out.”

Dawson said he would be wearing

gumboots for at least two of his four runs.

He had recently trained, finding he could

cover 8km in one hour in gumboots.

“It actually wasn’t too bad, no blisters,”

he said.

Professional firefighter Karl Kitchen,

who lives at Rolleston and is a senior station

officer in Christchurch, had trained

with him.

Kitchen wore full fire kit and breathing

apparatus, while walking 5km in the hour.

Kitchen said while the breathing apparatus

tank of compressed air generally

lasted a maximum of 33 minutes, he

slowed his breathing right down to stretch

it out to the one hour.

“Running for an hour is not hard for

me, whereas making one BA cylinder last

an hour is adding an extra stress to push

myself a wee bit,” Kitchen said.

The public are invited to attend noon-

3pm Saturday and 9am-noon Sunday.

Entry was free but people could give a

donation.

Dawson said the Saturday could potentially

draw visitors who were wanting to

attend the Selwyn Fireworks Spectacular

in Foster Park that evening. I AM HOPE

representatives would carry out a bucket

collection at the display.

Donations can also be m ade at

givealittle.co.nz/fundraiser/emergencyservices-lace-up-their-boots,

where $1290

had already been raised as of last week.

Record bike

details to keep

it from thieves

SELWYN RESIDENTS wanting to

deter potential bike thieves or help

find their bike if it is stolen are being

encouraged to register their bike

with the free 529 Garage service.

Police have teamed up with the

community-powered bike recovery

initiative in a bid to curb bike thefts

and reunite owners with their stolen

property. It follows a costly year for

owners in 2021, with more than $2

million of bikes stolen and an average

of four a day reported missing

in Canterbury.

The 529 Garage service works by

recording a bike’s details, including

serial numbers, photos and identifying

features.

This makes it easy for police to

identify stolen bikes and return

them to their rightful owners.

Once registered, owners can obtain

a unique code on a tamper resistant

shield to stick on their bike,

which acts as a warning to would-be

thieves that the bike is registered.

Potential buyers can also search the

database to check if a secondhand

bike they’re looking at has been

flagged as stolen.

If stolen, bike owners can update

the 529 Garage app, and a notification

is sent to the local 529 Garage

community, advising them to keep

an eye out for the bike.

The 529 Garage app can be downloaded

for free from the App Store

and Google Play. Once registered,

tamper-resistant shields can be

obtained from Christchurch City

Council .

AFTER A nearly three-year

absence, cruise ships are about

to start calling into Lyttelton and

Akaroa harbours again.

The Covid-19 pandemic

brought the cruise industry to a

standstill, but with international

borders now open again, cruise

ships are starting to return.

Tomorrow Lyttelton will

welcome the first of more

than 100 cruise ships that will

visit Christchurch and Banks

Peninsula over the coming

months when the Celebrity

Eclipse docks at the port’s new

cruise ship berth.

The Celebrity Eclipse can carry

up to 2400 passengers.

Lyttelton’s new cruise ship

berth can accommodate cruise

ships of all sizes and will host

85 cruise ship visits over the

2022/23 season. Akaroa will host

15 cruise ships over the season,

with the first ship scheduled to

arrive on November 19.

Returning cruise ships to dock at new berth

SCHEDULED: The peninsula harbours will once again be visited cruise ships, the first is

Canterbury to manage the cruise

ship visits, to ensure cruise ship

passengers get a warm welcome

to the city.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

“In the years since the

earthquakes most of the cruise

ships visiting Canterbury have

called into Akaroa because

large vessels could not berth

at Lyttelton due to the damage

to the port,’’ said city council

general manager citizens and

community Mary Richardson.

“But now that Lyttelton has a

purpose-built cruise ship berth,

it will be hosting the majority

of cruise ship visits. The town

is well set up to accommodate

these visits and on cruise ship

days there will be dedicated

shuttles running from the cruise

berth to both Lyttelton and

Christchurch.

“Some ships will still call into

Akaroa, but they will be mainly

smaller, luxury liners so that

should ease the pressure on the

township.”

ChristchurchNZ acting

general manager of destination

and attraction Tracey Wilson

said about 170,000 cruise

passengers to the city were

expected over the season.

40,000 global pest weevil species

WEEVILS (Curculionidae) are the

largest family of beetles (Coleoptera)

in the world with over 40,000 species.

In New Zealand weevils are also the

largest beetle family with 1500 native

species and 46 adventive species.

Size can vary greatly with smallest

at 0.7mm and largest at 30mm.

The 9mm specimen I collected off

the path at home was identified as

the black vine weevil (Otiorhynchus

sulcatus).

Adults are very robust dark brown

to black with a matte appearance and

can have yellow-orange random hairy

patches.

The hardened wing covers are

fused together making it incapable of

flying.

The weevil is native to Europe

but is very common pest in North

America.

Over 100 plant species are eaten by

the black vine weevil making it one of

the most economically damaging pest

species of global horticultural crops

over the past five decades.

Some plant species such as cyclamen

are very susceptible and may be

killed by a single larva. However, in

New Zealand, strawberries and blackcurrants

seem to be the only plants

documented as having significant

damage, but white clover, plantain,

dock, rhododendron and maidenhair

fern are some of many known hosts

here.

Females have the ability to reproduce

parthenogenetically (without

mating) which only produces female

offspring. Eggs are >1mm in diameter

and are laid in soil or cracks.

They are pearly white when first laid

but darken over time to black before

hatching.

Larvae have a white crescentshaped

body that is widest about the

thorax. Larvae have reddish brown

heads and no legs. Two known

biocontrol agents for the black

vine weevil in New Zealand are a

nematode and a fungal pathogen.

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects

and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species

found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public

awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us.

Selwyn Gets Ready to ShakeOut

Get Ready to ShakeOut. Our national earthquake drill and tsunami hikoi is

about to take place on Thursday 27 October.

At 9.30am, drills will be held in workplaces, schools, marae, and homes across

the country, reminding people to Drop, Cover and Hold in an earthquake. In

coastal areas people will also be taking part in a tsunami hikoi (evacuation) to

practice their ‘Long or Strong Get Gone’ response to an earthquake.

Milestone moments

for town centre

The first Rolleston Fields shops and new roads are opening this week as the latest

milestones are marked in completing the new heart of Rolleston.

Burgerfuel, Lone Star and Majestic Tea will become the first commercial spaces

to open in Rolleston Fields – the commercial area of the Rolleston Town Centre -

opening over the next month. More commercial spaces are on the way early next

year, commercial developer Tennyson 21 has confirmed.

The Council is also opening two new roads this week, Christensen Parade and

Rōhutu Way, along with new car parks to support access to the town centre,

while the Youth Zone is on track to open in December, Council Land Development

Project Manager Phillip Millar says.

“This is a huge step for the town centre, and helping create a hub and a heart

for the community. It’s exciting to see these buildings and roads opening and

the community spaces taking shape. Seeing the way people have embraced and

enjoyed using Te Ara Ātea and the Sensory Space has been fantastic and with

these developments and the Youth Zone we’re really starting to see the vibrant

community heart we’ve been planning and looking forward to for so long.”

Access to the town centre is now available via Christensen Parade off Rolleston

Drive next to the Rolleston Community Centre or from Moore Street at the

Wordsworth Street intersection. There is also a one-way entrance off Tennyson

Street to the new car park south of Te Ara Ātea, with the exit onto Rōhutu Way

and then Christensen Parade.

Work on the next stage of the skateable area in the reserve is under way. This

means some of the temporary skate park has been fenced off for construction

work, with the remaining area open to use until the new skate features

are complete.

The car parks will include six electric car charges, which will be installed by

Meridian Energy next year as part of a partnerhsip with the Council to install more

chargers in public parking spaces across Selwyn.

Biodiversity protection in the Rakaia Gorge

An intensive weed control project in Rakaia Gorge is helping to protect the area’s rare

and precious native plants and trees.

The weed control project is being carried out over four years, and after Selwyn

District Council, Environment Canterbury and landowners undertook an assessment

of the gorge’s ecological values, and the weeds that threaten them.

The Gorge is rich in native biodiversity, with diverse mixed hardwood species, bluff

shrublands, tussock land, grasslands and two large wetlands.

At least 16 threatened and at-risk native plant species have been recorded - including

Canterbury pink broom, and Rōhutu/Myrtle – both nationally critical, along with

others that are regionally uncommon.

According to Council’s Senior Biodiversity Advisor Andrew Spanton, the project

recognises Rakaia Gorge’s special role in maintaining local biodiversity.

“Because of its steep banks and high cliffs Rakaia Gorge has been relatively free of

grazing and fires, making it something of a safe haven for native plants,” he says.

Along with sycamores; cherry, cotoneaster and wilding conifers have been identified

as causing significant issues in the Gorge.

“These species are highly competitive and will usually outcompete our native plants.

In our first year of work we were playing catch up to remove the most obvious and

harmful weeds,” he says. A contractor is now being engaged to start on the second

year of weed control.

“While weed eradication is our top priority, there are also complementary trapping

and planting projects underway,” Spanton says. “The weed control in the Gorge is

a great demonstration of a biodiversity partnership project that includes input and

funding from Gorge landowners, Ministry for Primary Industries, the Trustpower

Rakaia Catchment Environmental Enhancement Fund, Land Information New

Zealand, ECan, Ashburton District Council and Selwyn District Council.”

There are lots of ways to help prepare for an earthquake and/or tsunami,

Selwyn Emergency Management Officer Jason Flewellen says. “These include

visiting getready.govt.nz to refresh your knowledge of what to do, picking up

a Selwyn Are You Ready booklet from a Council office or library, and visiting

selwyn.getsready.net to sign up for our free emergency alerting system for

Selwyn residents,”

he says.

The alerting system

sends texts and

emails to subscribed

households, warning

of events including

tsunami, wildfires,

and severe weather.

While we can’t

predict earthquakes,

scientific research

indicates there is a

75 per cent probability of an Alpine Fault earthquake happening in the next

50 years and it is likely to be a magnitude 8+. A great deal of work is going

into mapping what the likely impacts would be on Canterbury, Jason says.

In the meantime it's important everyone takes steps to prepare to look after

themselves and their families.

Remember to visit selwyn.getsready.net and getready.govt.nz to make sure you

and your family are well prepared for the future.

Community supported to lead change

A workshop designed to build confidence and skills amongst people working

in community development is being held in Selwyn district on 3 November.

‘Activating Community – Led Change’ is being run by Inspiring Communities

in partnership with the Council, and will be held at West Melton Community

and Recreation Centre, from 9.30am until 4pm.

“We believe success in community-led development is enabled by being

creative, engaging multiple voices and perspectives, inspiring hope and

possibility, and through finding ways for individuals to take action,” Kindra

Douglas of Inspiring Communities says.

The entry fee for the workshop is $69 + GST for anyone from a Non

Government Organisation and $195 plus GST for those from government and

private sector agencies. To register visit https://bit.ly/ACLSelwyn.

A light lunch will be provided.

A swell time at the SWELL Expo

Over 600 people attended SWELL Expo last Monday 17 October, filling up all

areas of Lincoln Event Centre between 9am and 2.30pm.

The main Liffey Stadium was packed with over 70 exhibitors. The sound of

an accordion filled the room as Jan Mckay from the Leeston Day Club played

some upbeat tunes. Plenty of community groups showed Selwyn’s older

residents how to sign up, while other stalls gave them information about

healthcare, life planning, volunteering, and travel.

Fun activities in Nicholas

Hall, saw lots of attendees

getting their groove on with

Zumba, giving Scottish

Dancing a go and trying

out indoor bowls with the

Lincoln and Ellesmere

indoor bowling clubs.

Speaker sessions were also

well attended. Speakers

spoke on a range of topics,

including ageing and

disabilities, brain health,

retirement villages and

online safety.

The event received good feedback, with many attendees saying the event was

really helpful, and they loved the blue Swell goodie bags they received, full of

great information packages and brochures.

Council employment initiatives win national award

Programmes organised by the Council with local and national partners to support employment in

Selwyn have earned national attention.

The Council won a Best Practice Commendation for Integrated Planning Award at the Economic

Development New Zealand national awards last week, for its Selwyn Works package of

programmes, designed to build local employment, especially for younger adults.

The Selwyn Works package of initiatives helped over 650 Selwyn residents into work in Selwyn,

or training and making career plans incorporating living and working in Selwyn. It included

Trailblazers, an innovative programme of training, social support and internships with Council, and

the Mayors Taskforce for Jobs Work Exposures providing

work experience at Selwyn businesses.

GARDENING

HOPEFULLY, THE highs and

lows of spring have departed by

now and the weather has become

more settled. But be sure to keep

an eye out for the possibility of

late frosts.

October is a very active month

in the vegetable garden. Before

planting add in copious amounts

of compost to help create an ideal

growing medium for newlyplanted

seeds and seedlings.

Vege plants for the summer

garden can include capsicum,

courgettes, eggplants (aubergine),

peppers, pumpkin, tomatoes and

watermelon.

Maintain a close watch for

slugs and snails that will devour

young seedlings. A light side

dressing with vegetable fertiliser

will help young plants become

well established. Water deeply

when required, to encourage

young plants to develop a deep

root system.

Preparation for your summer

flowering ‘bed’ should begin in

October, including the addition

of compost. Summer flowering

annuals can include alyssum,

asters, cornflowers, californian

poppy, cosmos, lobelia, livingston

daisies, marigolds, nemesia,

petunias, portulacas, phlox,

salvia, sweet pea and zinnia.

Spring blossoms should now

be finished on pip stone fruit

trees; apples, apricots, nectarines,

peaches, pears and plums, with

small fruit starting to form.

Many of these trees have

what can be described as ‘heavy

post-blossom fruit drop’ and

often only 5-10 per cent of their

blossoms will actually become

mature fruit, usually enough for

a ‘heavy crop’. Apply fruit tree

fertiliser at five to six-weekly

intervals.

Shrubs that have flowered

compost to get growth started

RICH: Compost will create an ideal growing medium for

newly-planted seeds and seedlings.

during the winter months, for

example, azaleas and camellias

may require some ‘tidy up’

pruning before new growth

commences. With all shrubs, a

side dressing of general garden

fertiliser will encourage strong

healthy growth.

Mulching with compost

around the shrubs will help

inhibit weed growth and retain

soil moisture, which is very

important as the weather heats

up.

Plant cucumber now

for summer salads

WHEN THE classic summer

salad or sandwich comes to

mind, the cucumber is often one

of the first ingredients.

Subtly sweet, crisp, and

refreshing. If that isn’t enough to

tempt you, they’re also high in

Vitamin C and super hydrating.

If you want to pick yours

straight from the garden this

summer now’s the time to get

planting.

First, grab your cucumber

seedlings. Look for a warm,

sunny and dry spot in your

garden.

Dig in some compost or

leftover potting mix to the soil,

making sure it’s friable or breaks

up in your hand. Then, plant your

seedlings.

The cucumber likes something

to cling on to so, for best results,

either place them near a trellis

or similar frame, or use a simple

stake.

To encourage fruiting, grow

them next to a bee-friendly plant

like lavender. This encourages

pollination and, subsequently,

fruiting.

If pollination continues to be a

problem (flowers fall off but no

fruit develops), touch the pollen

on each plant with a paintbrush,

which will spread the pollen from

one flower to the next. You can

also do the same with an electric

toothbrush minus the toothbrush

head. Magic.

Around 10 to 12 weeks after

planting, you should have a

plentiful bounty of cylindrical

fruit to add a refreshing touch to

your summer fare.

THESE DAYS more and more

Kiwis are growing their own

herbs and vegetables.

And more and more gardeners

are taking a natural and organic

approach to gardening. This

means less chemicals and more

thought about what plants might

be beneficial to grow next to each

other.

This approach of growing

certain plants for the benefit of

other plants is called companion

planting and the idea has been

around for centuries.

And marigolds are probably the

most famous companion plant

around.

This brightly coloured flower

just happens to produce a strong

smell which repels many insects

and their roots also contain a

pesticidal chemical which kills

nematodes (microscopic parasites

living in the soil).

Marigolds are said to deter

aphids from tomatoes and roses,

and nematodes from potatoes and

other root crops.

They’re also said to keep

white cabbage moths away from

brassicas and will deter flies and

mosquitoes.

Plus, they look pretty.

Marigolds are probably most

well-known as an orange flower

but they also come in red, cream,

lemon and apricot colours.

Mass-planted, they will create a

stunning visual effect in

your flower bed or vegetable

garden.

Some gardeners like to grow

marigolds in the corner of their

vege plot or others take it to the

next level and create a barrier of

marigolds around their garden –

in particular around plants like

lettuces and those mentioned

above.

Each plant will grow to around

20cm high and should be planted

approximately 15cm apart from

the next.

In around six to eight weeks

your marigolds should start to

flower and you can judge for

yourself their effectiveness as a

companion plant.

Beware of

hidden

dangers

SPRING IS a time when it’s

desirable to be working is the

garden.

However, there are hidden

dangers and one of those is

developing legionnaires’ disease.

Here are some guidelines to

avoid that happening

•Minimise the amount of dust

present when working in the

garden.

• Water gardens and indoor

plants using a gentle spray.

• Read the warning label on

bagged composts or potting mix.

• Wear gloves.

• Wear a mask so that any dust

is filtered out before you can

breathe it in.

• Dampen potting mixes before

use.

• Open bags of soil products

slowly, away from the face.

• Make sure the working area

(for example, the glasshouse or

potting shed) is well ventilated.

• See a doctor if you develop a

flu-like illness that seems to be

worsening.

• Wash hands thoroughly

after gardening or handling soil

products.

These are simple, easy and

natural steps that all gardeners

can take to reduce risk while

continuing to enjoy their garden.

PETS & PAWS

No more chances Greyhounds

SPCA is calling for an end to commercial greyhound

racing in New Zealand. The animal welfare group says

that New Zealand is one of only seven countries left

operating commercial-level greyhound racing. Most

recently the US states of Arkansas, Florida and Iowa all

announced phase-outs of greyhound racing.

Only last year the Government took an

unprecedented step to put the performance of

Greyhound Racing New Zealand ‘on notice’, indicating

that the industry would be measured based on key

performance indicators and a decision would be made

in the coming months. The SPCA is now asking where

are these indicators and what are they measuring?

Independent reports into the welfare of dogs over the

last 10 years have all reported significant issues on and

off the track.

SPCA says to call for an end to an industry is not

a position its organisation takes lightly, and as an

animal welfare organisation accepts some uses of

animals by humans provided their physical, health and

behavioural needs are met.

While SPCA has tried for years to work with the

greyhound industry to improve greyhound welfare,

the organisation says the industry has been unable to

adequately address its animal welfare problems.

The animal welfare group believes it is clear the

greyhound industry cannot meet its animal welfare

obligations and is no longer acceptable in New Zealand

society. A recent survey carried out by an independent

research company on behalf of SPCA reports that

74% of New Zealanders would vote to ban greyhound

racing in a referendum.

put an end to the industry in New Zealand,

Skoda expands hybrid range

IN THIS DAY and age of sport

utility vehicles it may come as some

surprise to know that Skoda’s best

selling model is actually a station

wagon.

I’m delighted by that, I’ve long

adored wagons for their practicality

and sedan-like feel.

I’m no stranger to the Octavia

wagon, over the years several have

come my way for evaluation and

I’ve never yet found one I don’t like.

That’s still the case, there is a

new Octavia wagon in the Skoda

fleet and it is a departure from the

normal. Well, that’s not so radical

in today’s age because the Octavia

iV is a hybrid, what’s more it is

a plug-in hybrid and it is part of

a line-up that is creeping more

and more towards the benefits of

electrical propulsion.

Regular readers will recall my

Superb iV evaluation in May, the

Octavia wagon actually has much

the same driveline as that car and

it is better for it, less weight means

greater performance and it has

similar economy and distance to

travel figures.

The Octavia wagon iV has a

1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine

and that is the catalyst of the hybrid

system, it works in conjunction

with an electric motor to provide

drive.

The supercharged and

turbocharged system is rated at

180kW, 110kW coming from the

petrol engine, the rest coming

from electric energy. There’s also

a healthy 400Nm of torque that is

available from just 1550rpm, which

means a substantial amount of low

down impetus.

Drive is channelled through a

direct shift transmission, there

are six gearing points resulting

in quick-changing, fluid shifts.

Incorporated into the system are

traditional drive mode options –

economy, sport and normal, and

if you want to manipulate the

gearing, that can be done through

steering wheel-mounted paddles.

Each of the drive modes work

quite differently, it is a complex

system, but in essence it operates

with the driver completely unaware

of its operation. Put simply, when

using e-mode the Octavia will

drive purely on electricity up to a

distance of 60km. In sport mode,

both the electric motor and petrol

engine are engaged to provide a

more dynamic feel. Hybrid-mode

switches between both the motor

and engine depending on need.

As with all hybrid systems,

fuel economy is the benefactor,

especially in e-mode. The TSi

engine has come from the wider

Volkswagen group and it has

thrifty fuel use as a manufacturing

priority, and when you add the

benefits of electric power it merely

sips fuel, the driveline is rated with

a spectacular 1.6-litre per 100km

combined cycle average. Those

figures are at best possible usage,

even driving with fuel economy

in mind I couldn’t replicate them,

but I did see the readout sitting

at a combined cycle average

of 4.6l/100km on a couple of

occasions. At 100km/h on the open

SKODA OCTAVIA iV RS: Traditional petrol engine and hybrid driveline.

road the instantaneous readout

sits at 3.4l/100km with the engine

pulling just 2000rpm.

Other figures of relative

importance are a lively 7sec

standstill to 100km/h acceleration

time, and 5.8sec for a highway

overtake (80-120km/h). Mid-range

response is quite rewarding, the

energy created through electrical

energy is certainly beneficial.

I took the evaluation car on

much of my normal high country

run. On the open road it sits quietly

and dispenses the kilometres with

ease. You can feel the hybrid system

changing modes as it determines

what is necessary to promote

drive, but it is not invasive and you

quickly become disconnected to its

operation.

When it comes to handling

SLEEK: The

Skoda Octavia

wagon sits low

at just over 1.4m

but it has much

practicality with

a cavernous load

section.

• Price – Skoda Octavia iV

RS wagon, $72,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4689mm; width, 1994mm;

height, 1473mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1395cc, 180kW,

400Nm, six-speed direct

shift automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7sec

• Fuel usage – 1.6l/100km

those tricky inland bends the

Octavia iV has direct steerage and

precise corner turn-in. Low profile

Bridgestone Turanza tyres (225/45

x 18in) and firmish suspension

settings aid grip immensely and

combine to provide a very sporty

handling balance.

Not only does the Octavia

wagon have optimal spring and

damper rates, the entire suspension

structure is one of engineering

quality. Given that drive is directed

out of the front wheels, Skoda

could well have engineered a single

tube beam torsion axle across the

rear, and the argument for that

would have been to better adapt

for load carrying. However, there’s

a wonderful independent strut

arrangement and it controls rear

wheel movement wonderfully,

bumps and ruts are absorbed

quietly while occupant comfort is

maintained to a high level.

Like most plug-in electric

vehicles the Octavia iV comes

with two charging cables, one for

domestic supply and a type 2 for

quick charging at a designated

charging station. I never used the

latter instead opting to charge from

my garage on a regular basis. After

a week in my care it just became a

matter of routine to plug in after a

journey. I found that an overnight

plug-in was enough to generate

100 per cent battery capacity. The

domestic cable also has decent

length at 6m, easily manageable in

the situation at my home.

The Octavia wagon iV is priced

at $65,990 in standard form

(150kW), the evaluation car was a

high-spec RS version that adds $7k;

however, both easily qualify for the

Government’s clean car rebate, a

discount of $5750 will be refunded

after purchase.

The Octavia wagon came at an

opportune time for me, lengthy

items were needed to continue a

home improvement project I’m

working on and they easily loaded

into the wagon section.

It’s that sort of everyday usage

that wagons offer, and they are

popular amidst a wide crosssection

of buyers who, like me,

relate to their purpose.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Selwyn Motor Fest

is back!

Rolleston will again be the venue

for the spectacular Selwyn Motor Fest

and Family Fun Day being held on

Sunday, 20th November, from 10 am

to 3 pm, across from Rolleston College,

on Springston Rolleston Road. Based

on previous years’ experience, over 500

vehicles will be displayed, and 4000-5000

people are expected to attend this event.

The proceeds of this event go back to the

Selwyn community supporting local nonprofit

groups and organisations.

Any vehicle is welcome, and there will

be plenty of show cars, bikes, tractors,

trucks and more on display. There will

be judging on different categories, with

trophies and awards presented. To show

your vehicle, you can register online up

to the day prior for $10 (this includes

everyone in the car) or pay $20 at the gate

on the day. Entrance without a vehicle is

Adult $5, Child $2, or Family $10.

Due to the excellent sponsorship for the

children’s area, there will be free rides and

activities, including bouncy castles, mini

jeep rides, games, face painting and lolly

scramble. There will also be mini digger

rides for a gold coin donation, kindly

supplied by MCL contracting.

Committee member Regan Beri says,

“We need to give a good shoutout to our

major sponsors, MCL Contracting and

Accessman, and also Faringdon (Hughes

Construction) and Stadium Finance, who

are sponsoring the kids’ area. Also, a big

thank you to the local sponsors who have

donated or come on board as sponsors.”

For a fantastic, fun day out, no matter

the weather, there will be something

for everyone, with market and vendor

stalls, food and entertainment and

hundreds of vehicles to admire. See

www.selwynmotorfest.kiwi for more

information.

Swap meet attracts

the crowds

The Swap Meet held recently at

McLeans Island attracted over 39,000

punters looking for bargains and a great

day out. Swap Meet and Canterbury

Vintage Car Club treasurer Jim Miles says

the group had a great turnout of visitors

to the event and all 630 sites were sold

out. People could wander over several

hectares of stalls while browsing a wide

range of new and second hand goods

and a chance to get up close and personal

with a mix of classic and vintage cars and

tractors on display. The event is one of the

biggest swap meets in New Zealand.

Motor vehicles galore!

With the chance to see spectacular and edge-of-your-seat racing,

the Wigram Revival is taking place at the Mike Pero Motorsport

Park, 107 Hasketts Rd, Templeton, from Friday, 28th to Sunday, 30th

October.

The Canterbury Car Club runs the Wigram Revival to continue the

tradition of Wigram racing. The meeting features classic and historic

classes and cars, which would have been featured at the Wigram

circuit from 1949 onwards. Mark from Canterbury Car Club says,

“We run it in the spirit of what Wigram was in the day at the Wigram

Airforce Airfield.”

This meeting is generally a classic car event, including Pre65, Mini

7, Historic and Classic Pre 78 Saloons, Vintage Racing Cars and many

others. With an expected 200 competitors, there will be plenty of

racing action, with 29 races held over Saturday afternoon and Sunday.

Racing and the chance to look around will provide a great

atmosphere. Mark says, “The older cars sound cool, look cool, and are

a bit different.” They also handle differently, meaning you could see

cars on three wheels. Spectators can look around the pits, chat with

drivers and get up close to see the vehicles that are racing.

Experience the excitement and spectacle of the Wigram Revival at the

Mike Pero Motorsport Park with spectator entry at the gate (cash/EFTPOS).

For more details, visit https://www.canterburycarclub.co.nz/event/wigram-revival/

Entry on Friday – $10 and Saturday/Sunday – $30 adults

(children under 16 free on Saturday and Sunday).

• Clarify what the minimum housing needs are for Christchurch for the long term

• Update existing housing demand figures in the District Plan to the results of the

2021 Greater Christchurch Housing Capacity Assessment

More information

The NPS-UD requires Tier 1 and 2 local authorities to set housing bottom lines for

the short-medium term (next 10 years) and the long term (10 to 30 years) in their

regional policy statements and district plans.

The housing bottom lines represent the amount of development capacity required

to meet expected housing demand in Greater Christchurch over the next 30

years plus an additional 15 to 20 per cent to allow a margin for competitive land

markets. The housing bottom lines are based on information in the 2021 Greater

Christchurch Housing Capacity Assessment.

The Canterbury Regional Policy Statement (CRPS) has also been amended by

deleting the existing Objective 6.2.1a Targets for Sufficient, Feasible Development

Capacity for Housing and replacing it with Objective 6.2.1a Housing Bottom Lines,

as set out below:

Outdoor

Splendour

Just as any other room in

your home requires planning,

so do outdoor spaces.

We look at a few areas that

bear some careful

consideration to achieve a

functional, stylish and

relaxing backyard retreat

this summer.

Vondom

Outdoor rooms have their own unique

challenges. As well as giving thought to

architectural style, colour palettes, traffic

flow, spatial requirements and comfort,

it’s important to factor in shelter from

the elements and privacy from the nextdoor

neighbours.

Important things to consider if you

are reinventing your outdoor area from

scratch or embarking on a big project

are orientation and layout. Exposure

to sun and protection from the wind,

proximity to the house, pool, and

views, and consideration for the kinds

of activities to accommodate cooking,

dining, entertaining, lounging, and sun

bathing, are also essential elements to

think about.

If you’re contemplating tackling

a large-scale project or even if your

outdoor area could benefit from some

bespoke elements, employ a landscape

architect and an interior designer

(many of whom have experience

designing outdoor areas). Many have

the ability to successfully design and

manufacture custom-made furniture to

suit your specific needs or have access to

discounted products that will save you

money.By bringing in the professionals,

you can rely on their extensive

knowledge and experience to design a

functional and beautiful space you will

love entertaining and relaxing in.

Consider access between indoor

preparation areas to outdoor dining areas

for optimal practicality. Ideally your

outdoor area should be easily accessible

from the house, with food preparation

areas located near your indoor kitchen to

reduce trips back and forth.

If this is not a viable option you

may want to think about designing a

dedicated area outdoors to a combined

cooking and dining area.

Heating is an additional benefit, which

will enable you to enjoy your outdoor

areas in comfort for longer. Investigate

the variety of options on the market that

best suits your requirements and current

set up.

Integrate an awning or sun sails to

patios adjoining the house or a sturdy

multi-directional umbrella for shade

over dining and lounge areas.

Gazebos and pergolas are stand-alone

structures at the bottom of the garden

or beside the pool are a good way to

provide respite from the sun and wind.

Always work together with your

designer or builder to ensure the style of

any stand-alone structure is in keeping

with the architecture of your home for a

cohesive look.

SELLING YOUR HOME?

Potential buyers are

likely to be living in your

neighbourhood, it’s an

area that they already love

and are actively seeking

to stay in. That’s why it

makes sense to advertise

your property in the

Selwyn Property Guide.

We are the only media

that reaches across the

entire Selwyn District.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Versatile in every way

You might be surprised to know that Versatile Homes have

been building homes for 45 years and with that comes a wealth

of experience and trust in the fact that they know what they

are doing. Versatile was launched in 1976 from a small office in

suburban Christchurch and their state-of-the-art manufacturing

plant is still Christchurch-based.

Their Te Whariki show home is aimed at people wishing to

down size and is one of Versatile’s Freedom range designs, Finn,

with a floor area of 196m3 on a 490m2 section.

The basic Finn design is priced from $525,000 whereas the

Southfield Drive home has an additional $20,000 in variations.

These variations include a higher ceiling in the living area and

entry, 2200mm high internal doors which help with air flow, a

built-in booth seat in the living area, a separate laundry with

Tristone benches throughout.

Boasting three bedrooms and, currently, a cosy snug which can

be separated from the living area by an impressive black barn door

which could also have a role as a media room, office or a fourth

bedroom.

All the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and there is plenty of

storage including a huge linen cupboard in the hall way. A separate

toilet makes life easier, and the bathroom features a stunning

freestanding Newtech bath – perfect for a soak in the evening.

The double garage has an insulated door, attic storage with drop

down ladder, complete with carpeted floor.

The Versatile network has 30 outlets across the country New

Zealand and is still proudly New Zealand owned and operated as a

family business.

“We design and build, manufacture and distribute thousands

of buildings each and every year, employing highly-skilled

practitioners around the country,” says sales consultant Gary

Longhurst who, along with Richard Fitzgerald, can offer valuable

advice at every stage of the building process.

The Versatile show home is open from 12pm until 4pm,

Wednesdays to Sundays at 94 Southfield Drive or visit www.

versatilehomes.co.nz to view the full range of homes. The company

is also well-known for their range of top quality garages, sleep-outs,

farm buildings and car ports.
