Sophisticated burglary<br />

shocks store owner<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

BURGLARS CUT through the<br />

roof of Southbridge Superette<br />

to steal more than $20,000 in<br />

cigarettes and about $6500 cash.<br />

Store operator Ankit Gandhi<br />

was shocked and dismayed after<br />

the theft overnight Saturday on<br />

Labour Weekend.<br />

“It’s lots of hassle for me, it’s not<br />

easy for me to deal with, this one,”<br />

Gandhi said.<br />

The offender or offenders had<br />

cut through the internet cable<br />

outside the store and ripped off<br />

a burglar alarm, so the security<br />

company could not be alerted to<br />

the break in. Once inside, they cut<br />

wires to interior security cameras<br />

and took the camera hard drive,<br />

leaving no CCTV images.<br />

They also left no fingerprints.<br />

Until security cameras were restored<br />

late last week, Gandhi was<br />

remaining in the shop overnight<br />

to make sure no one else broke in.<br />

“I’m staying the nights here, I<br />

don’t sleep much.”<br />

Locked cigarette cabinet doors<br />

had been wrenched open and<br />

their shelves emptied, while a safe<br />

with a full week’s takings had<br />

been broken into and the cash<br />

inside stolen.<br />

Grigg seeks re-selection for <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

SELWYN MP Nicola Grigg is seeking<br />

re-selection as the National Party<br />

candidate for the electorate.<br />

Nominations for the seat close today.<br />

“As far as I understand there are<br />

no other nominees,” Grigg said on<br />

Monday.<br />

“I want to be reselected to continue<br />

the work I am doing in Parliament on<br />

behalf of our district,” Grigg said.<br />

Grigg is a former radio journalist and<br />

National Party press secretary. She beat<br />

off two rivals prior to the last election<br />

to win the National selection,<br />

replacing retiring<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> MP Amy Adams.<br />

She won the seat with<br />

18,578 votes; Labour’s<br />

Reuben Davidson trailed<br />

4943 votes behind on<br />

13,653. It was the lowest National<br />

margin since 1993 in an election where<br />

that will deliver the party vote to<br />

of rectifying the damage the Labour<br />

government is doing to New Zealand,”<br />

Developers fight<br />

air noise<br />

contour decision<br />

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

NEWS 3<br />

Note:<br />

The location of medium density<br />

sites will be determined at the<br />

time of subdivision in accordance<br />

with the ODP guidance under<br />

‘Land Use and Density’<br />

Cadastral information derived<br />

from Land Information New<br />

Zealand’s Digital Cadastral<br />

Database (DCDB)<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

DEVELOPERS AT Rolleston have<br />

appealed a district council decision to<br />

refuse their rezoning application for land<br />

in the Christchurch International<br />

Airport air noise contour.<br />

The land is in the middle of<br />

their proposed 660-section subdivision<br />

on 53ha, bounded by Levi<br />

Rd, Lincoln Rolleston Rd and<br />

Nobeline Drive.<br />

Four Stars Development Ltd<br />

and Gould Developments Ltd<br />

have appealed to the Environment<br />

Court a decision by the<br />

district council in August to not allow<br />

deferred rezoning of the land, for about<br />

220 sections, which they requested in<br />

their plan change application, Plan<br />

Change 71.<br />

The district council declined the<br />

request as the land is in the airport’s 50<br />

decibal (dB) air noise contour. Air noise<br />

contours restrict residential development<br />

due to the risk of home owners being affected<br />

by aircraft noise.<br />

However, this particular air noise contour<br />

is under review and will move from<br />

Rolleston to West Melton, if remodelling<br />

is confirmed.<br />

The developers’ lawyer Gerard Cleary<br />

has told the Environment Court in<br />

the appeal document, the remodelled<br />

contour no longer took in this part of<br />

Rolleston. While the remodelled contour<br />

was subject to review by a Canterbury<br />

Regional Council panel of experts,<br />

which would issue a final<br />

report next month, it was likely<br />

to be confirmed.<br />

“It is practically inevitable<br />

that the final report by the panel<br />

of experts will confirm that the<br />

land is no longer affected by the<br />

50 dB contour,” Cleary said.<br />

The hearing commissioner,<br />

who had advised the district council<br />

not to allow deferred rezoning – that<br />

is rezoning to kick in once the contour<br />

shifted – had failed to give regard to “the<br />

most up to date technical information on<br />

the location of the air noise contours”.<br />

Meanwhile, the district council will<br />

soon schedule a hearing for Plan Change<br />

74, a rezoning application from Hughes<br />

Development Ltd for 20ha at West Melton.<br />

Christchurch International Airport<br />

is among submitters opposing the<br />

development, for up to 130 sections<br />

on land bounded by Halkett Rd and<br />

West Coast Rd, due to it being in the<br />

remodelled air noise contour.<br />

SUSPECT IDENTIFIED IN<br />

RELATION TO BAR THEFT<br />

Police have identified a 19-yearold<br />

suspect involved in the theft<br />

from a Lincoln bar patron who<br />

won $1200 on the pokies. Senior<br />

Sergeant Rachel Walker said on<br />

Friday police were seeking to<br />

speak with the man. There had<br />

been a good response from the<br />

public, resulting in identification<br />

of the suspect. “That investigation<br />

is ongoing, nothing recovered<br />

as yet,” Walker said.<br />

the likely escape route.<br />

Gandhi said he had lost customers<br />

wanting to buy cigarettes<br />

over several days until stocks<br />

were replenished. He had also<br />

been busy repairing the damage,<br />

renewing the security system and<br />

making an insurance claim.<br />

He was grateful for huge support<br />

from customers and the<br />

community, including those who<br />

repaired the hole in the shop’s<br />

roof.<br />

Gandhi has only been at the<br />

store since August, but it has<br />

been long enough to know<br />

shop owners like him are far too<br />

often the victims of this type of<br />

crime. Harsher penalties were<br />

required.<br />

“The government needs to stop<br />

it, it’s happening a lot,” Gandhi<br />

said.<br />

He was incensed at a lack of<br />

repercussions for thieves and<br />

burglars.<br />

“If they stand here next to us<br />

and do the work, then they will<br />

realise how to make money.”<br />

His comments echoed those<br />

has been targeted by youths in<br />

robbery.<br />

SELWYN continues to be the<br />

fastest growing place in the<br />

country, with more new residents<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong> in the past year than<br />

anywhere else in New Zealand.<br />

The latest population estimates<br />

from Statistics New Zealand show<br />

Waikirikiri <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s population<br />

grew by 3600 new residents to<br />

79,300, which was the largest<br />

total number of new residents of<br />

anywhere in the country. <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

also had the biggest proportional<br />

growth at 4.5 per cent.<br />

In the surrounding<br />

council<br />

areas Waimakariri<br />

grew by 1300<br />

people (1.9 per<br />

cent), Ashburton<br />

by 200 (0.6 per<br />

cent) and Christchurch<br />

city’s<br />

population fell by<br />

700 people (-0.2<br />

per cent) in the year to June 2<strong>02</strong>2.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s population growth<br />

was backed by a continuing strong<br />

economy, with the most recent<br />

figures from economic analysts<br />

Infometrics showing <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s<br />

economy grew by 6.2 per cent in<br />

the year to June against a national<br />

average of 0.9 per cent.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s economy was supported<br />

by strong dairy payouts,<br />

along with the ongoing housing<br />

boom, strong consumer spending<br />

and tourism bouncing back from<br />

the impacts of the pandemic with<br />

tourism spending growing by 10.7<br />

per cent in the year to June.<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton says<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> is benefiting from a combination<br />

of great natural attractions,<br />

good planning and a strong<br />

community.<br />

“When people are looking for<br />

an awesome place to bring up<br />

their whānau or grow a business<br />

Waikirikiri <strong>Selwyn</strong> ticks all the<br />

boxes.<br />

“Since the pandemic we’ve seen<br />

people all around the world reassessing<br />

region, with a young, welcoming<br />

population, great social amenities,<br />

a balance of rural and urban<br />

lifestyle, and a good economy.<br />

“The challenge for us now<br />

is meeting the natural growing<br />

pains that come with increasing<br />

population. We’re working hard<br />

to keep those things that make<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> attractive, to protect<br />

what we have while embracing<br />

the change. That’s not always<br />

easy in a changing regulatory<br />

environment where we now have<br />

less say in some important areas,<br />

but our new council is excited<br />

Councillor<br />

to propose<br />

traffic<br />

calming<br />

measures for<br />

street corner<br />

ELLESMERE WARD district<br />

councillor Shane Epiha has<br />

met with residents concerned<br />

about road safety on the corner<br />

of Market St and Pultney St,<br />

Leeston.<br />

Epiha told social media followers<br />

he would be asking the<br />

district council to consider<br />

speed calming options and<br />

make the corner safer.<br />

He said drivers “flying”<br />

around the corner, near Leeston<br />

School, often had to suddenly<br />

hit their brakes when they saw<br />

children crossing.<br />

There was also boy racer<br />

activity in the area.<br />

He said Manse St had also<br />

seen an increase in speeding.<br />

“Burnouts are great on a skid<br />

pad, but not in a residential area<br />

with our kids and people at risk<br />

of serious harm,” Epiha said.<br />

“It’s time to acknowledge we<br />

are growing in population and<br />

popularity in our little town<br />

and we need to take more care<br />

both aged between six and 12<br />

months, were unregistered and<br />

not microchipped.<br />

“The dogs could do with a<br />

groom, but appear to be healthy<br />

“We haven’t had any success in<br />

locating the owners, but we have<br />

rehome the dogs, and one to give<br />

them a groom. Now we’re now<br />

working through the process to<br />

find them a loving new forever<br />

The district council first put<br />

up a post seeking the owners on<br />

its Facebook page October 25.<br />

It has more than 70 comments,<br />

the dogs attracting sympathy for<br />

being in a “sad way,” in need of<br />

“summer grooming” and “TLC.”<br />

ELLESMERE HOSPITAL has<br />

re-opened this week, while<br />

Darfield Hospital is expected<br />

to open next week, after the<br />

facilities have been closed for<br />

seven months.<br />

“It’s been a long time, no-one<br />

can understand why it has been<br />

of Helen, who is a patient at<br />

Ellesmere Hospital.<br />

Helen was forced to move to<br />

an Ashburton rest home when<br />

the hospitals closed in March.<br />

The closure was due to health<br />

staff pressures in the Covid pandemic,<br />

and was expected to last<br />

just six weeks.<br />

Tom said he had only been able<br />

to see his beloved wife, who is<br />

bedridden due to having suffered<br />

a stroke, once or twice a week<br />

when she was in Ashburton.<br />

But now she is back in Leeston<br />

near their marital home, he had<br />

returned to seeing her every day.<br />

He said the joy of seeing Helen<br />

return had overshadowed the past<br />

sadness of having her so far away.<br />

“We will forget about it pretty<br />

quick, you just move on don’t<br />

you?”<br />

Design for Coes Ford<br />

wetland almost completed<br />

AN AMBITIOUS project that<br />

will see a wetland constructed<br />

near Coes Ford is approaching<br />

the end of its design phase.<br />

Coes Ford is a popular swimming,<br />

picnicking and camping<br />

area south of Springston. At<br />

times during summer, the water<br />

quality is below standards set for<br />

swimming.<br />

Silverstream, a spring-fed<br />

catchment, is the main contributor<br />

of contaminants to the<br />

Waikirikiri/<strong>Selwyn</strong> River at the<br />

site. Three years ago, a feasibility<br />

study that we commissioned<br />

determined that a constructed<br />

wetland could improve the water<br />

quality of the Silverstream before<br />

it reaches the Waikirikiri.<br />

Last year, the project took a<br />

significant step forward when<br />

Lucerne key in gaining more punch<br />

A pasture project that<br />

has helped farmers on<br />

dryland hill properties<br />

has another important<br />

role to play, writes Tim<br />

Cronshaw<br />

PROF DERRICK Moot plucks off<br />

a fresh stalk of lucerne which he<br />

fondly calls “God’s own plant”.<br />

The nitrogen-fixing legume<br />

is nestled in six fields within<br />

the Lincoln University grounds<br />

where the academic and his small<br />

team are looking at gaining more<br />

punch from its feeding rotation.<br />

Lambs contentedly munch<br />

on the perennial, oblivious that<br />

they’re contributing to important<br />

science.<br />

Once a minority player, lucerne<br />

– known as alfalfa in other<br />

parts of the world – has gained<br />

a following among dryland<br />

farmers because of its high<br />

energy, yield and resilience.<br />

A large tap root reaches deep<br />

into the soil to access nutrients<br />

and water.<br />

More commonly grown for<br />

grazing here, as opposed to<br />

being used as hay forage in other<br />

areas such as North America,<br />

it’s become a pivotal part of the<br />

university’s dryland pastures<br />

research programme.<br />

Initially a climate change<br />

project, the focus is on feeding<br />

animals well in tough dryland<br />

country typically on the East<br />

Coast from Central Otago to<br />

Gisborne.<br />

The goalposts shifted last<br />

month with its genesis becoming<br />

even more valid, as the Government<br />

announced that farmers<br />

face paying a price for their agricultural<br />

emissions from 2<strong>02</strong>5.<br />

Moot says the sheep and beef<br />

sector has reduced its methane<br />

emissions by 30 per cent and its<br />

emissions per kilogram of meat<br />

over the past 30 years.<br />

Total emissions have gone<br />

down because dairying<br />

expanded, but better feeding of<br />

animals is behind productivity<br />

gains going from about one<br />

kilogram of methane per 1kg of<br />

meat to now 0.7kg of methane for<br />

1kg of meat, he says.<br />

Fewer ewes with a higher<br />

lambing percentage have<br />

contributed to this with a faster<br />

growth rate of lambs to heavier<br />

kill weights.<br />

He says more improvement<br />

needs to come from productivity,<br />

with lucerne playing its part on<br />

dryland farms by better feeding<br />

of ewes and lambs during the<br />

vital lactation phase.<br />

“That’s what we’ve done and we<br />

need to continue to do that, but<br />

that’s not part of the conversation<br />

at the moment.<br />

“There’s a lot of conversations<br />

of other forms of trying to reduce<br />

our emissions predominantly<br />

cutting numbers, lower-emitting<br />

sheep, vaccines, seaweed, a number<br />

of things experimental.<br />

“How does a farmer do it right<br />

now? The only way of doing it is<br />

feeding your animals better and<br />

getting rid of your lambs and<br />

cattle quicker and having fewer<br />

of them because they’re more<br />

fecund. If you have fewer ewes<br />

during the winter then you will<br />

have reduced methane as well.”<br />

He says the jury might be out<br />

whether other countries will<br />

follow our world-first legislation,<br />

but it’s going to land here so we<br />

have to deal with it.<br />

An educated guess is that 20<br />

years ago few dryland farmers<br />

would have got rid of lambs at<br />

weaning at 90 to 100 days so just<br />

about all of them were going<br />

through into December, January<br />

and February.<br />

Some of those farmers would<br />

now be getting rid of 60 to 70 per<br />

cent of their lambs at weaning<br />

and take another big cut a month<br />

later.<br />

Another productivity gain<br />

is that their ewe lambs will be<br />

growing better so they can be<br />

mated as hoggets, rather than<br />

them being merely a grazing<br />

expense for a year – “not a great<br />

methane emission reducer”.<br />

The dryland pasture studies<br />

started when Moot arrived back<br />

from the United Kingdom in the<br />

1990s, after working on climate<br />

change.<br />

He got a position at Lincoln<br />

University and thought who’s<br />

going to be most affected “if”<br />

climate change happens.<br />

“Climate change was on the<br />

agenda and I’d been working on<br />

wheat yields in different parts of<br />

the United Kingdom.<br />

“It was [in the minds] of the<br />

agricultural science community<br />

here in New Zealand, but there<br />

wasn’t a lot of conversations<br />

outside of the science<br />

community. Indeed, when I<br />

first started talking to farmers,<br />

I didn’t mention climate change<br />

and just said you are dealing with<br />

climate variability and how can<br />

we create an insurance policy for<br />

you.”<br />

There wasn’t a lot of acceptance<br />

from either the public or the<br />

rural community then, hence the<br />

diplomacy.<br />

from feed, research team finds<br />

“In fact my first lectures at<br />

Lincoln University were on<br />

climate change and a couple of<br />

people have told me they actually<br />

put my lecture notes in the bin<br />

because they thought they were<br />

nonsense because I was bringing<br />

back this information, the data<br />

and the models from the UK.<br />

They laughed about it afterwards,<br />

but that’s how it started.”<br />

A few years followed as he put<br />

together a research project with a<br />

focus on lucerne after wondering<br />

why more use wasn’t being made<br />

of the plant in farming.<br />

Lucerne had fallen out of<br />

favour as irrigation gained pace<br />

and because of its limiting reputation<br />

as a cut-and-carry forage.<br />

A survey found that farmers had<br />

lucerne, but made it into hay or<br />

silage and fed it to stock in the<br />

summer.<br />

Prof Moot began questioning<br />

why lucerne wasn’t being<br />

grazed. The answer didn’t arrive<br />

immediately, but eventually was<br />

straightforward.<br />

Farmers had been told to wait<br />

until it got to 10 per cent flowering,<br />

by which time it was 70-80<br />

centimetres tall and virtually a<br />

“tree trunk”.<br />

That management advice<br />

had come from a cut-and-carry<br />

system in the United States for<br />

providing feed for dairy cows in<br />

feedlots – a foreign scenario to<br />

hill country sheep and beef farming<br />

here.<br />

The problem with this was that<br />

the plant wasn’t useful when it<br />

was needed most at the busiest<br />

time of the farming year when<br />

animals were lactating. Augustborn<br />

lambs need feeding that<br />

month, not by late October to<br />

mid-<strong>November</strong> when lucerne had<br />

reached 70cm.<br />

Weaned lambs would go on<br />

the harvested lucerne around<br />

Christmas, but the animals’ guts<br />

took a few weeks to adjust and<br />

the timing of the system was out<br />

of kilter as the plant’s growth<br />

rate slowed in summer when the<br />

lambs started growing quickly.<br />

The first step was to “pick the<br />

plant to pieces” and get the science<br />

to stack up to try to make it<br />

more useful. Lucerne essentially<br />

works like a poplar or willow<br />

tree, storing nitrogen and carbon<br />

in the ground in autumn before<br />

bursting back into life in spring.<br />

Understanding its life-cycle,<br />

the researchers realised they<br />

could change its management so<br />

ewes and lambs could graze on<br />

high-quality feed around lambing,<br />

assisting ewe lactation and<br />

helping them keep their condition<br />

to get back into cycle more<br />

easily later on.<br />

Stock are now grazed from early<br />

August at Lincoln University.<br />

They then move on to subterranean<br />

clover to work out a more<br />

robust package for growing it.<br />

This clover is grown in some of<br />

the driest parts of North Canterbury<br />

and Hawkes Bay, where<br />

animals in the lactation period<br />

are vulnerable on farms with two<br />

to three months of summer-dry<br />

weather.<br />

The self-seeding annual germinates<br />

in the autumn, producing a<br />

rosette about the size of a saucer<br />

in the winter and then runs<br />

as the days get longer in early<br />

spring, a growth period that’s a<br />

month earlier than white clover.<br />

Moot said the key part of that<br />

study was working out how to<br />

turn 10kg of seed in the first paddock<br />

to 1000kg for the farmer.<br />

That involved letting the first<br />

paddock set seed with grazing<br />

only by cattle initially and concentrating<br />

on a small area first.<br />

So the second step was to apply<br />

the lessons on farms and the<br />

last part of the DPR study the<br />

past five years has been writing<br />

up some of the case studies<br />

in the Hill Country Futures<br />

programme with Beef+Lamb<br />

NZ and making them visible to<br />

people and showing their impact.<br />

Moot says the farm data has<br />

given scientists confidence and<br />

the case studies have given farmers<br />

confidence.<br />

Early adopters such as Doug<br />

Avery, at Marlborough’s Bonavaree<br />

Farm, acted as a catalyst for<br />

others to follow.<br />

Once the DPR team could<br />

prove the model worked the challenge<br />

was to evolve the principles<br />

to other parts of the country and<br />

environments beyond summerdry<br />

farms.<br />

Banks Peninsula’s 5500ha<br />

Willesden Farm, managed by<br />

Matt Iremonger, has gone from<br />

five to 350ha in lucerne the past<br />

five years.<br />

• From page 9<br />

Lucerne is being used in a<br />

specialist way on the property<br />

for hoggets rearing their first<br />

lambs to make sure they’re well<br />

fed during lactation and provide<br />

a boost for the still-growing<br />

animals.<br />

A Hill Country Futures study<br />

has measured this to be two and<br />

a-half to three times better than<br />

the grass yield over contrasting<br />

average, dry and wet seasons<br />

the last three years. Lucerne’s 14<br />

tonnes of dry matter a hectare<br />

on average compares with the<br />

resident pastures’ 6t/ha.<br />

Lincoln University studies<br />

have shown twin lambs grazing<br />

on lucerne before weaning<br />

routinely put on 300 grams per<br />

head a day.<br />

“That’s what you need,” Moot<br />

said.<br />

“If you’ve got a dry farm you’ve<br />

got to get from a 5kg animal<br />

to a 35kg animal in 100 days.<br />

The maths says you have to<br />

grow 300g per day. The average<br />

growth rate is probably 150g per<br />

head a day and the difference for<br />

those on grass-based pastures<br />

is that the ryegrass is absolutely<br />

fine when you start in spring but<br />

then goes to seed just as you’re<br />

getting large lambs starting to<br />

eat themselves and your ryegrass<br />

quality starts to drop.<br />

“Animals will always do well<br />

in lactation because they can<br />

feed on mum, and mum will lose<br />

condition so the advantage of<br />

lucerne or red clover, or whatever<br />

herbs with legume it might be,<br />

is that you can maintain mum’s<br />

condition as well as growing<br />

the animals quickly during that<br />

lactation period.”<br />

By the same token, cull ewes<br />

fed on lucerne can get off the<br />

farm earlier and avoid freezing<br />

works bottlenecks.<br />

The animals are generally fed<br />

on mono-cultures of lucerne<br />

in the likes of Central Otago,<br />

Mackenzie district, North Canterbury,<br />

Blenheim or Hawkes<br />

Bay, but systems vary depending<br />

on the location of a farm and its<br />

moisture levels.<br />

Dryland pastures research helping farmers<br />

PACKING A PUNCH: Once a minority player, lucerne has<br />

gained a following among dryland farmers because of its<br />

high energy, yield and resistance.<br />

Red clover is sometimes<br />

exclusively fed on farms such<br />

as John Chapman’s Inverary<br />

Station – partly to also help him<br />

take control of weed grasses –<br />

before being replaced by Italian<br />

ryegrass after a few years or put<br />

in permanent pasture with timothy<br />

grass.<br />

Inverary continues to get rain<br />

through winter to summer most<br />

years, but the principles of the<br />

lucerne lessons still apply.<br />

Prof Moot says hill country<br />

grass is usually nitrogen deficient<br />

as can be seen comparing urine<br />

patches with nearby pasture.<br />

Many hill country farmers<br />

don’t put on nitrogen fertiliser<br />

because of the cost of applying<br />

it by aircraft and if they do, it’s<br />

usually 100kg of nitrogen in the<br />

spring, he says.<br />

He says putting nitrogenfixing<br />

legumes in can fix this,<br />

with the likes of lucerne, red and<br />

white clover providing about<br />

30kg of nitrogen per tonne of<br />

legumes grown. Summer-dry<br />

farmers without the large rainfall<br />

of other farming areas don’t have<br />

to deal with nitrate leaching as<br />

the nitrogen stays in the soils to<br />

be used by grasses and legumes<br />

later.<br />

A lucerne stand will generally<br />

last five to 10 years. The former<br />

might be in an irrigated paddock<br />

where weeds might sprout<br />

up, while dryland properties<br />

working with the DPR team<br />

last seven-plus years. After that<br />

grazing period Italian ryegrass<br />

or another crop might be planted<br />

to mop up nitrogen in the soil,<br />

lasting 18 months to two years<br />

after lucerne is removed.<br />

Farmers can concentrate on removing<br />

weeds then and go back<br />

to lucerne.<br />

Another Hill Country Futures<br />

study at Inverary found 30t/ha of<br />

Italian ryegrass dry matter was<br />

grown without nitrogen following<br />

three years of it being in red<br />

clover pasture.<br />

Similar dryland studies have<br />

shown good gains after lucerne is<br />

grown at Lincoln University.<br />

The DPR team is by no means<br />

large with the core of the group<br />

including Moot as its frontman,<br />

a research associate and a field<br />

technician. But it has been able<br />

to call on academics inside and<br />

outside of the university and<br />

many PhD, masters and visiting<br />

students.<br />

Their grazing management has<br />

been picked up in South American<br />

nations such as Chile and<br />

Argentina for beef cattle grazing<br />

and in Australia, with interest<br />

extending to rangelands farming<br />

in the United States.<br />

Moot says the difference between<br />

now and when the project<br />

first started is that East Coast<br />

farmers have hope.<br />

Lucerne has become part of<br />

their system rather than an oddball,<br />

he said.<br />

Looking ahead, there’s a<br />

research application in with the<br />

Ministry for Primary Industries to<br />

go back and profile the economic<br />

and environmental footprint of<br />

farms involved with DPR.<br />

“Climate change was always<br />

there in the beginning of the<br />

project. I never thought we<br />

would be trying to reduce methane<br />

emissions out of animals.<br />

“When I did climate change<br />

30 years ago it was always about<br />

carbon dioxide in energy and<br />

still is in my opinion, but New<br />

Zealand has decided we are<br />

going to do methane so now we<br />

have to measure it.”<br />

Weed control project to<br />

protect gorge’s biodiversity<br />

AN INTENSIVE weed control<br />

project in Rakaia Gorge is<br />

helping to protect the area’s rare<br />

and precious native plants and<br />

trees.<br />

The project is being carried<br />

out over four years, and after the<br />

district council, Environment<br />

Canterbury and landowners<br />

undertook an assessment of the<br />

gorge’s ecological values, and the<br />

weeds that threaten them.<br />

The gorge is rich in native<br />

biodiversity, with diverse mixed<br />

hardwood species, bluff shrublands,<br />

tussock land, grasslands<br />

and two large wetlands.<br />

At least 16 threatened and<br />

at-risk native plant species<br />

have been recorded – including<br />

Canterbury pink broom, and<br />

rōhutu/myrtle – both nationally<br />

critical, along with others that<br />

are regionally uncommon.<br />

According to the district<br />

council’s senior biodiversity advisor<br />

Andrew Spanton, the project<br />

recognises Rakaia Gorge’s<br />

special role in maintaining local<br />

biodiversity.<br />

“Because of its steep banks<br />

and high cliffs Rakaia Gorge has<br />

been relatively free of grazing<br />

and fires, making it something<br />

of a safe haven for native plants,”<br />

he says.<br />

Along with sycamores,<br />

cherry, cotoneaster and wilding<br />

conifers have been identified as<br />

causing significant issues in the<br />

gorge.<br />

“These species are highly<br />

competitive and will usually<br />

out-compete our native plants.<br />

In our first year of work we<br />

were playing catch up to remove<br />

the most obvious and harmful<br />

weeds,” he says.<br />

A contractor is now being<br />

engaged to start on the second<br />

year of weed control.<br />

“While weed eradication is<br />

our top priority, there are also<br />

complementary trapping and<br />

planting projects under way,”<br />

Swimmer Bella is bound for Berlin<br />

SELWYN SWIMMER Bella<br />

Lammers has been named in the<br />

New Zealand squad to compete<br />

in the 2<strong>02</strong>3 Special Olympics<br />

World Summer Games in Berlin.<br />

She will be part of a 40-strong<br />

squad that will compete in<br />

the German capital from June<br />

17-25, and also includes fellow<br />

Cantabrians Nathan Winkelman<br />

(basketball), Haven Drinnan<br />

(swimming), Ryan Gourdie<br />

(powerlifting), Samantha<br />

Shepherd (equestrian) and Blair<br />

Smith (Bocce).<br />

Over 7000 athletes with an<br />

intellectual disability from 190<br />

countries will compete in Berlin<br />

across 26 sports in the world’s<br />

largest inclusive sporting<br />

event.<br />

Bella is super excited to be<br />

named in the New Zealand team<br />

and travel to Germany.<br />

“It’s awesome! And I’m going<br />

be on TV,” says the Rolleston<br />

swimmer, who just celebrated<br />

her 21st birthday.<br />

Bella has been part of the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Special Olympics<br />

swimming squad for eight years<br />

and in 2017 competed in the<br />

National Summer Games in<br />

Wellington.<br />

“Wellington was awesome. I<br />

won a gold, silver and bronze<br />

medal,” says a proud Bella,<br />

whose room is covered in medals<br />

and ribbons from her swimming<br />

exploits.<br />

“We are really excited for these<br />

athletes, their coaches and their<br />

families, as the World Summer<br />

Games will be the pinnacle<br />

of their sporting careers with<br />

Special Olympics,” Special<br />

Olympics New Zealand chief<br />

executive Carolyn Young said.<br />

Young says that the full team<br />

will head into their first training<br />

camp next weekend (<strong>November</strong><br />

4-6) to get to know each other<br />

and their coaches in Wellington.<br />

In Berlin, the New Zealand<br />

team will be supported by 19<br />

coaches and other support staff,<br />

under the guidance of head of<br />

delegation Rowena Massey.<br />

Massey said the selection<br />

process included a complex<br />

set of considerations, not just<br />

the sporting ability, as Special<br />

Olympics athletes have different<br />

intellectual disabilities or<br />

additional health challenges.<br />

POOLSIDE:<br />

Bella Lammers<br />

competing<br />

at the 2017<br />

Special<br />

Olympics<br />

Summer<br />

Games in<br />

Wellington. ​<br />

“Flying around the world<br />

to compete and live in an<br />

unfamiliar environment can<br />

be really challenging for our<br />

athletes,” Massey said.<br />

“We had to consider how<br />

independent the athletes are,<br />

if they can travel without their<br />

family, if their health situation<br />

allows them to travel, but<br />

also how long have they been<br />

part of Special Olympics or if<br />

they have attended previous<br />

World Games.”<br />

Young says that the World<br />

Summer Games are the global<br />

pinnacle event, but all New<br />

Zealand athletes will first<br />

be focusing on the National<br />

Summer Games in Hamilton,<br />

starting on December 8, when<br />

around 1400 athletes and<br />

coaches will compete in 10<br />

sports across eight venues.<br />

“Our athletes have been<br />

training five years for these<br />

games, so we can’t wait for our<br />

national games to start.”<br />

Bella is currently training<br />

several times each week with<br />

the <strong>Selwyn</strong> swim school, and<br />

by herself, as well as her regular<br />

Wednesday Special Olympics<br />

training session, to prepare for<br />

Hamilton.<br />

“Breaststroke is my favourite,<br />

but I also swim freestyle and<br />

butterfly races in Hamilton,”<br />

Bella said.<br />

Aside from her regular<br />

swimming sessions, Bella is<br />

also busy training for her karate<br />

grading to earn her green belt,<br />

is part of a dance group, has<br />

a part-time job at Rolleston<br />

Costume Hire, and is about to<br />

move into her first flat with two<br />

flatmates.<br />

But the 21-year-old seems to<br />

take it all into her stride. “I love<br />

my life,” she said.<br />

Parry Field Lawyers<br />

Getting to the Heart of What Matters<br />

Parry Field Lawyers say having the trust of clients is<br />

of paramount importance for their community-minded<br />

legal practice.<br />

The firm, which has several partners who live locally, is<br />

celebrating six years of being based in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> district<br />

with the opening of a new office at 80 Rolleston Drive.<br />

Partnership chair Kris Morrison says the region’s benefit is<br />

that Parry Field has a large team across several offices and<br />

many areas of specialty. It’s been in successful practice in<br />

Canterbury since 1948.<br />

“Having the opportunity to firmly set down roots in <strong>Selwyn</strong>,<br />

it’s definitely great to have a larger new dedicated office,<br />

and we’re looking forward to working with existing and<br />

new clients.”<br />

The official opening of the new office on October 28 by<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton was attended by several other<br />

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

Mayor<br />

Sam<br />

Boughton<br />

and Kris<br />

Morrison,<br />

Parry Field<br />

Lawyers<br />

Partnership<br />

Chair.<br />

Solicitor Cora Granger in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> team advised,<br />

“We get to know our clients and gain a deeper<br />

understanding of their issues. This approach builds solid<br />

relationships, and we think it leads to quality service.”<br />

“We are always looking to provide innovative and practical<br />

solutions for our clients”, Ms Granger says. Life can provide<br />

you with opportunities but sometimes also challenges. For<br />

example, you may need legal assistance, including issues<br />

with divorce or separation, wills or Power of Attorneys,<br />

incorporating a society or help with a work visa.<br />

“It signifies our commitment to the <strong>Selwyn</strong> district and<br />

our wish to provide excellent local legal services to clients,”<br />

Mr Morrison said.<br />

Operating with a staff of 80 people across three South<br />

Island sites, the Parry Field Lawyers team in <strong>Selwyn</strong> has<br />

grown with the district, and there are now seven staff at<br />

Rolleston Drive, which ensures there’ll always be someone<br />

on hand at the office.<br />

The approachable and knowledgeable team offers a wide<br />

range of affordable legal services, including Trust and Asset<br />

Planning, Charities and Social Enterprise and Immigration,<br />

with a focus on Property, Advisory and Disputes.<br />

The business is big enough to handle significant issues but<br />

small enough to ensure that the experienced service clients<br />

receive is cost-effective, efficient and gets to the heart of<br />

the matter quickly.<br />

you need it.<br />

CELEBRATION: Jack Stewart (left), Glen Innes, Mary McIntre and Gary<br />

Hopkinson at the opening of Across the Divide exhibition. ​<br />

Exhibition hones in<br />

on east-west link<br />

A VIBRANT group gathered at the Te<br />

Huanui Art Gallery in Darfield on Friday<br />

night for the opening of Across the Divide.<br />

The exhibition features the work of<br />

three West Coast artists, Rae Eder, Sarah<br />

Godfrey and Gary Hopkinson.<br />

Said Eder: “We used to call into the<br />

gallery, were asked to join the gallery<br />

and place work in the shop. That lead to<br />

an invitation to exhibit with other West<br />

Coast artists.”<br />

What was initially a larger group show<br />

became four artists, then three.<br />

Much of the artwork depicts the mountain<br />

ranges connecting the east and west<br />

coasts.<br />

Both Eder and Godfrey are landscape<br />

painters, while Hopkinson, a former<br />

architect, incorporates buildings into<br />

watercolour-and-ink artworks.<br />

“I could draw but not paint,” he said of<br />

his decision to pick up a paintbrush.<br />

“A desire to artistically document<br />

structures and buildings started with pen<br />

and washes, then more complex work,<br />

initially using the watercolour set gifted to<br />

me 50 years before.”<br />

Eder had taught art and craft as a<br />

primary school teacher.<br />

“In my fifties I had the time to develop a<br />

serious interest and attraction to making<br />

art,” she said.<br />

Godfrey, meanwhile, studied fine art at<br />

Dunedin School of Art before returning<br />

to the West Coast in 2013. Since then she<br />

has created her uniquely circular paintings<br />

in her studio on the family farm near<br />

Kowhitirangi.<br />

• Across the Divide is on at Te<br />

Huanui until <strong>November</strong> 24.<br />

We are excited to be offering two<br />

new labels these are perfect for<br />

your summer events<br />

Each and every collection from<br />

by a beautiful location that we<br />

have either visited, aspire to visit or<br />

imagine. I’m fascinated by different<br />

cultures and their unique offerings.<br />

This is Loobie’s Story, a collection<br />

that lets you tell your own unique<br />

and ever changing story.<br />

A merging of urban essentials with<br />

a hint of the exotic, it’s a story<br />

about a love for life and a life well<br />

lived.<br />

Madly Sweetly<br />

We’ve always had you in mind<br />

when designing our range, that’s<br />

why it’s relaxed and contemporary,<br />

with an effortless mix and match<br />

style of wardrobe essentials for the<br />

busy woman of today.<br />

be bright, colourful and feminine,<br />

and sometimes your outfit needs<br />

to be functional. (And sometimes<br />

that same outfit needs to be both!)<br />

We touch on the trends, but are<br />

not driven by them, because we’re<br />

not into fads. Our inclination is to<br />

build a collection of clothing that<br />

offers longevity and works for your<br />

Show focuses on youth for its future<br />

• By Tim Cronshaw<br />

A HEAVY youth focus<br />

with a splash of art is being<br />

introduced for this month’s New<br />

Zealand Agricultural Show in<br />

Christchurch, after two years of<br />

cancellation due to Covid-19.<br />

A long list of challenges<br />

has failed to derail the event,<br />

including general manager Tracy<br />

Ahern recovering from falling<br />

down a bank while tramping<br />

in June and being airlifted to<br />

hospital.<br />

There has also been staff<br />

illness, price hikes and<br />

supply delays, as well as a<br />

new team finding its feet and<br />

the challenges of securing<br />

sponsorship to cushion the A&P<br />

Canterbury Association’s $1<br />

million loan over 10 years by the<br />

Christchurch City Council.<br />

Ahern said the setbacks<br />

had forced them to bring<br />

in innovation to ensure the<br />

longevity of New Zealand’s<br />

largest agricultural show.<br />

“Our board is focused on a<br />

new future-proofed strategy. We<br />

definitely had to rethink because<br />

it just wasn’t financially viable<br />

to keep relying on two weeks of<br />

income a year to keep the show<br />

alive, yet alone grow it.”<br />

She said they had brought in a<br />

youth focus linked to showcasing<br />

pathways to rural employment.<br />

“They are who we need to keep<br />

this 159-year-old organisation<br />

going and if we are to be the<br />

world’s farming leaders we need<br />

youth leaders.”<br />

Gate fees are being dropped<br />

for children under 18 years and<br />

the Clash of the Colleges is a new<br />

15-module competition open to<br />

secondary schools.<br />

Teams face tasks such as<br />

identifying animal anatomy,<br />

condition scoring of sheep, wool<br />

classing, identifying seeds and<br />

weeds, applying drench, tying<br />

knots, safety, aspects of fencing,<br />

and putting together a shearing<br />

hand piece.<br />

Another addition is a Cows<br />

in the Park competition with<br />

mostly young artists aged under<br />

25-years-old taking their artistic<br />

flair to life-size fibreglass cows<br />

measuring 1.5m tall. The painted<br />

cows will be auctioned with the<br />

winner producing the highest<br />

bidding art work.<br />

Graffiti artists have also been<br />

brought in to liven up electric<br />

boxes and add “vibrancy” to the<br />

site.<br />

Ahern said the competition<br />

was part of uplifting the rural<br />

sector with art and all the<br />

designs entered by the art<br />

finalists had a rural theme.<br />

Traditional events had not<br />

been ignored and livestock<br />

exhibitor numbers were at record<br />

levels, with another marquee<br />

added to cater for increased<br />

cattle numbers, she said,<br />

New sponsors and corporate<br />

hosting have been brought<br />

on board, and evening<br />

entertainment introduced for the<br />

first time at the Cassels BaaBaa<br />

Bar.<br />

The brewery’s unspecified<br />

anchor contribution is among<br />

new and existing sponsors<br />

supporting the show after forced<br />

cancellations.<br />

Ahern said this showed the<br />

strength of support for the show.<br />

She said organisers were<br />

determined to halve waste at the<br />

event, with sustainable sourcing,<br />

reducing or re-using materials,<br />

a bus service and encouraging<br />

cycling with more cycle racks.<br />

“Materials will be measured,<br />

tracked, and reused or donated<br />

to community organisations and<br />

schools at the conclusion of the<br />

event.”<br />

The show was one of the few<br />

events where people could go for<br />

old fashioned, inter-generational<br />

family fun, she said.<br />

NEWS 21<br />

MESSAGE: White Ribbon Riders will stop at schools throughout the South Island, including at Rolleston.<br />

Riding bikes for healthy relationships<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

HIGH SCHOOL students in<br />

the district will be given tips for<br />

healthy relationships when they<br />

are visited by the White Ribbon<br />

Riders this month.<br />

About 12 motor-cyclists will<br />

be rumbling into the district as<br />

part of the lead up to White Ribbon<br />

Day on <strong>November</strong> 25, the<br />

international day when people<br />

wear a white ribbon to show they<br />

do not condone violence towards<br />

women.<br />

They will be aiming to shatter<br />

stereotypes of toxic masculinity,<br />

and share their own stories of<br />

domestic violence, as they go on<br />

a South Island tour.<br />

The tour will include a free<br />

community evening hosted by<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Safer Families Trust, at<br />

Rolleston Community Centre on<br />

<strong>November</strong> 14, along with visits<br />

to Rolleston College, Ellesmere<br />

College and Darfield High<br />

School, and Burnham’s youth<br />

justice residence Te Puna Wai on<br />

Tuhinapo.<br />

The co-ordinator is Rolleston<br />

retired teacher and artist David<br />

Ellena, who is a White Ribbon<br />

ambassador and chair of the<br />

trust. He is also a keen motorcyclist,<br />

but his bike will be<br />

parked up for the tour as he<br />

drives a support vehicle.<br />

Ellena said New Zealand statistics<br />

for domestic violence, and<br />

in particular violence against<br />

women, were some of the worst<br />

in the world.<br />

For example, police attended<br />

a family violence episode every<br />

four minutes, yet only an estimated<br />

33 per cent of cases were<br />

reported.<br />

He referred to the concerning<br />

results of a 2<strong>02</strong>1 survey at<br />

Christchurch Girls’ High School,<br />

that one third of respondents<br />

had been sexually harrassed or<br />

abused.<br />

“This lines up with other surveys,”<br />

Ellena said.<br />

His comments preceded the<br />

release last week of survey results<br />

from Avonside Girls’ High<br />

School and Shirley Boys’ High<br />

School, revealing thousands of<br />

instances of sexual harassment<br />

between both schools, which<br />

share a campus. There were also<br />

21 cases of rape or near-rape at<br />

Avonside Girls’.<br />

Ellena said when it came to<br />

talking to school students, he<br />

and the riders shared their stories.<br />

While he himself had been<br />

fortunate in his life not to have<br />

lived in a home with domestic<br />

violence, he had encountered<br />

bullying at school.<br />

“It’s something now, looking<br />

back, I can see how it made me,<br />

now I know I can share with the<br />

kids from experience, it’s not<br />

just telling a story, it’s my experience,”<br />

Ellena said.<br />

“When a group of folks wearing<br />

leathers and riding motorbikes,<br />

some of whom have been<br />

through this, share their stories<br />

and suggest possible answers,<br />

people tend to listen.”<br />

He said one of the messages<br />

they imparted to boys was having<br />

the courage to show a softer<br />

side, and how to treat girls with<br />

respect. For girls, they shared<br />

the importance of being able to<br />

stand up for themselves in the<br />

face of poor behaviour.<br />

“Often some of these kids are<br />

coming out of homes that are in<br />

cycles of family violence, they<br />

want a way out of it. We talk<br />

about how one of the most important<br />

things is to have respect<br />

for themselves.”<br />

The White Ribbon Riders will<br />

begin the tour in Christchurch<br />

on <strong>November</strong> 13, before going<br />

to <strong>Selwyn</strong>. They will then head<br />

north before travelling down<br />

the West Coast. They will be in<br />

Oamaru for White Ribbon Day<br />

before heading back to Christchurch.<br />

The riders are mostly from<br />

Christchurch, Nelson, the West<br />

Coast and the North Island.<br />

Extra riders will be joining in<br />

for the ride to the community<br />

centre for White Ribbon Event.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> motorcyclists can apply<br />

to join White Ribbon Riders for<br />

their tour at whiteribbon.org.nz<br />

• The free White Ribbon<br />

Event will be held on<br />

at Rolleston Community<br />

Springfield turns out for Rewi Alley's<br />

125th anniversary<br />

Springfield’s Rewi Alley Memorial Park was abuzz with activity on Friday<br />

21 October, as Malvern community came together with special guests to<br />

celebrate the 125th anniversary of Rewi’s birth in Springfield.<br />

Annual art festival<br />

kicks off in <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

An impressive array of artworks, art history and creativity will be celebrated in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> from 4 <strong>November</strong>, as part of the district’s annual Art Series.<br />

The Series will feature exhibition tours, workshops, art history presentations,<br />

and a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into maintaining Lincoln University’s<br />

enviable collection of New Zealand artworks.<br />

The Series will begin with a tour of Pahū exhibition on Friday 4 <strong>November</strong> at<br />

Te Ara Ātea, where the works of New Zealand artists Judy Darragh, Janna van<br />

Hasselt, Turumeke Harrington, Miranda Parkes and Clara Wells are on display.<br />

Exhibition curator Chloe Cull says the tours are an opportunity for people to learn<br />

more about the incredible artworks which were made especially for Te Ara Ātea.<br />

“Clara Wells’ projection ‘The Search and the Return’ in particular is quite<br />

appealing to visitors as they love the moving elements. It’s quite extraordinary at<br />

different times of the day when you see the colours coming through.”<br />

The Series will feature an insightful art history talk on Springfield-born writer,<br />

Rewi Alley, by University of Canterbury Associate Professor, Richard Bullen<br />

focussing on Rewi’s special relationship with <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s Sister City, Shandan<br />

County, and his Chinese art collection.<br />

Two hands-on workshops will be hosted on how to make your own flip book<br />

animation, and the joys of still life watercolour painting.<br />

Aspiring artists will have the chance to learn the best ways of writing about their<br />

work for funding proposals, and how to receive feedback or engage with criticism,<br />

thanks to curator and arts advisor Jamie Hanton.<br />

“I’d really encourage local artists to attend Jamie’s presentation. You’ll learn some<br />

tips and tricks for talking and writing about your work, and have an opportunity to<br />

engage with others in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> arts community,” Chloe says.<br />

To end the Series, bespoke shoemaker Louise Ayling will visit Te Ara Ātea on 8<br />

December to share how she has combined shoemaking and photography to create<br />

powerful pieces.<br />

Bookings are essential for many of the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Art Series events. To learn more<br />

Spring building maintenance<br />

tips – smoke alarms<br />

A home is usually the biggest single investment most people make. So it makes sense<br />

to protect that investment by carrying out regular maintenance to keep it in good<br />

condition. Our building team provide some seasonal advice throughout the year to help<br />

you keep on top of maintaining your home.<br />

As the days heat up it’s a good time to make sure things don’t get too hot in your<br />

home over spring and summer by testing your smoke alarms to ensure they are<br />

still working.<br />

Like most devices, smoke alarms don’t last forever, so if you find they are not working,<br />

or the batteries have run out, buy replacements and get them fitted without delay –<br />

your life could depend on it. Always make sure you buy good quality smoke alarms<br />

with a test button so you can regularly check that they are still functioning to protect<br />

your family.<br />

Retrofitted smoke alarms are often installed in locations that are not compliant and<br />

can lead to false alarms, so if your fitting new detectors here’s some simple rules<br />

to follow:<br />

• Ensure they are either located in all bedrooms or within three metres of bedroom<br />

doors so that they can be heard at the bed head.<br />

• They are best installed flat on the ceiling at the highest point and at least 300mm<br />

away from wall/ceiling junctions.<br />

• If you have a two-storey house, ensure you have an alarm located at the top of<br />

the stairwell.<br />

• Don’t install detectors in the kitchen or next to log burners where they will<br />

regularly trigger false alarms.<br />

• If your smoke alarms are hard wired into your security system, follow the security<br />

system manual instructions on how to test them – this is usually easily done with<br />

a magnet.<br />

Members of the Malvern Community Board, Springfield Township Committee,<br />

Sister City Committee, and students and principals from Springfield School<br />

and Darfield High School were joined by the Chinese Ambassador to New<br />

Zealand Wang Xiaolong and Chinese Consul General Madame He Ying to<br />

unveil a new plaque at the memorial park.<br />

Alley, born in 1897, remains one of China’s best-known and loved foreigners,<br />

setting up cooperatives and schools in the country. He is also the reason for<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s Sister City relationship with Shandan in northwest China.<br />

Sister Cities Committee Chair, Allison<br />

Rosanowski says the day was a great<br />

opportunity to remember<br />

Rewi’s contributions.<br />

“It was a moving celebration and it<br />

was wonderful to have young people<br />

involved, given the legacy<br />

Rewi started.”<br />

“He spent many years in China,<br />

working first in the fire brigade and<br />

then as a factory inspector in Shanghai<br />

where he witnessed child labour and became concerned about the plight of<br />

young children working in factories,” she says.<br />

“Rewi would go on to establish the Shandan Bailie School, which is now a<br />

large vocational college.”<br />

The Chinese Ambassador spoke of Rewi’s time in China, and explained that<br />

the primary focus of the celebration was to share the Rewi Alley legacy with<br />

young people. He then unveiled the new memorial plaque with the assistance<br />

of Springfield School and Darfield High School students. The plaque was<br />

made in China and donated by the Christchurch Chinese Consulate.<br />

Members of Rewi’s family, as well as the artist who sculpted the Springfield<br />

statue, Lu Boa and her husband also attended the ceremony.<br />

“I’d really like to acknowledge the Springfield community who for 25 years<br />

now have kept the legacy of Rewi Alley alive,” Allison says.<br />

Following the ceremony, the guests travelled to Amberley where Rewi spent<br />

time as a child.<br />

Transforming drains into streams<br />

An ambitious project to transform drains across the district into thriving<br />

streams is making an impact in <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

Work started in 2013 by Living Water, a partnership between Department of<br />

Conservation (DOC) and Fonterra, to improve the ecology and management<br />

of drains in the Ararira/LII river catchment, has grown into a partnership<br />

with councils and mana whenua to improve drainage, water quality and<br />

biodiversity, and restoring mahinga kai.<br />

There are about 76kms of council drains and a similar length of private drains<br />

in the Ararira/LII catchment. These drains were built from the mid 1800, to<br />

drain the wetlands around Te Waihora to enable farming and land settlement.<br />

These drains have mainly been managed through diggers digging out built<br />

up sediment. However, the drains are some of the only remaining habitats for<br />

indigenous freshwater biodiversity in Canterbury, and this process has often<br />

meant a trade off with indigenous biodiversity, ecosystem health or Māori<br />

cultural practice.<br />

In 2<strong>02</strong>0, a Memorandum of<br />

Understanding was signed between<br />

the Living Water partners, the<br />

Council and Te Taumutu Rūnanga<br />

to apply what’s been learnt from the<br />

Living Water project to the<br />

wider catchment.<br />

The group formed a working party<br />

in 2<strong>02</strong>1 with the LII Drainage<br />

Committee and Environment<br />

Canterbury to co-design a plan<br />

for managing the whole catchment to meet biodiversity outcomes, restore<br />

mahinga kai, improve water quality and continue to provide land drainage.<br />

The plan could help the river catchment and wider drainage in the district<br />

and become a national example, <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council Group Manger<br />

Infrastructure and Property Murray Washington says.<br />

“It’s a really positive and innovative partnership getting all these partners<br />

round the table to make something that’s great for <strong>Selwyn</strong>, for farming, for<br />

water quality, for biodiversity and transforming these drains into new streams."<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> still the most popular place to live in<br />

the country<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> continues to be the fastest growing place in the country, with more new residents in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> in the past year than anywhere else in New Zealand.<br />

The latest population estimates from Statistics New Zealand show Waikirikiri <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s population<br />

grew by 3,600 new residents to 79,300, which was the largest total number of new residents of<br />

anywhere in the country. <strong>Selwyn</strong> also had the biggest proportional growth at 4.5%.<br />

In the surrounding Council areas Waimakariri grew by 1,300 people (1.9%), Ashburton by 200<br />

(0.6%) and Christchurch City’s population fell by 700 people (-0.2%) in the year to June 2<strong>02</strong>2.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s population growth was backed by a continuing strong economy. The most recent figures<br />

from economic analysts Infometrics showing <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s economy grew by 6.2% in the year to June<br />

against a national average of 0.9%.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s economy was supported by strong dairy payouts, along with the ongoing housing boom,<br />

strong consumer spending and tourism bouncing back from the impacts of the pandemic with<br />

tourism spending growing by 10.7% in the year to June.<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton says <strong>Selwyn</strong> is benefiting from a combination of great natural attractions,<br />

good planning and a strong community.<br />

"When people are looking for an awesome place to bring up their whanau or grow a business<br />

Waikirikiri <strong>Selwyn</strong> ticks all the boxes.<br />

“Since the pandemic we’ve seen people all around the world reassessing what lifestyle they want.<br />

Here in Aotearoa, people have been moving away from the big cities and in <strong>Selwyn</strong> they’re seeing a<br />

beautiful region, with a young, welcoming population, great social amenities, a balance of rural and<br />

urban lifestyle, and a good economy.<br />

“The challenge for us now is meeting the natural growing pains that come with increasing<br />

population. We’re working hard to keep those things that make <strong>Selwyn</strong> attractive, to protect what<br />

we have while embracing the change.”<br />

Check for birds before firing up your tractor<br />

FIRE CHIEFS ARE asking the<br />

public to be extra careful after a<br />

number of reignited vegetation fires<br />

in recent weeks.<br />

Brigades had attended incidents<br />

where land and property owners<br />

had previously lit a fire but it had<br />

not been extinguished properly and<br />

so had ignited again.<br />

When strong winds occur, fires<br />

can be fanned back to life and<br />

transfer embers which create unwanted<br />

fires elsewhere.<br />

Piles of vegetation can also<br />

hold heat for months after burning,<br />

so here are some helpful tips to<br />

keep safe when lighting your next<br />

fire.<br />

• After the flames have been put<br />

out, check the burn in the days<br />

and weeks following to ensure it<br />

is completely out and cannot<br />

escape.<br />

• Check any piles or windrows as<br />

well to ensure they are cold in the<br />

centre, and make sure to turn them<br />

to ensure the material is completely<br />

burned.<br />

Preventing fires<br />

With Dean Harker FENZ<br />

community risk manager<br />

• Do not restock any piles with<br />

fresh fuel for a later burn as there is<br />

a risk of the fire reigniting.<br />

For further information visit:<br />

https://www.checkitsalright.nz/<br />

reduce-your-risk/fire-for-landmanagement<br />

Remember to also stop and pop<br />

the bonnet when starting machinery<br />

as bird nesting is a common<br />

cause of machinery fires around<br />

New Zealand.<br />

Birds are determined and continue<br />

to nest. They love to do so in<br />

tractor engines and exhausts because<br />

it’s warm and protected from<br />

the weather.<br />

• All operators should check their<br />

tractor engines and other farm machinery<br />

before starting or getting<br />

back to work.<br />

• Birds are known to create nests<br />

in engines in less than an hour so<br />

make sure to check even between<br />

morning and afternoon tea breaks<br />

and especially if the tractor has not<br />

been used in a while.<br />

A nest caused a tractor fire in<br />

Darfield about this time last year, so<br />

make sure to check first. That way<br />

you’ll be firing up your engine, not<br />

setting your engine on fire.<br />

DANGER:<br />

A tractor<br />

fire can<br />

easily start<br />

GARDENING<br />

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

Keep on top of strong spring growth<br />

THE LAST WEEK of October<br />

is possibly the biggest in the<br />

gardening calendar, it is certainly<br />

one of the most interesting.<br />

Spring growth is occurring in<br />

all parts of the home garden and<br />

roses are bursting into flower.<br />

It’s now<br />

time to feed<br />

lawns and<br />

tackle any<br />

problems.<br />

House plant care<br />

Check the position of your<br />

houseplants, summer sun can impact<br />

on the health of some plants<br />

– they can get too hot in the sun.<br />

Extra watering will be required<br />

as temperatures rise. This is an<br />

excellent time to purchase some<br />

new houseplants to ‘brighten’ up<br />

your home.<br />

Vegetable garden<br />

Vegetables that can be planted<br />

now include beetroot, cabbage,<br />

cauliflower, celery, leeks, lettuce,<br />

onions, peas, potatoes, radish, silver<br />

beet and spinach. The following<br />

can be added to the garden in<br />

the next few weeks – cucumbers,<br />

aubergines, beans, sweet corn,<br />

tomatoes and zucchini. Always<br />

rotate crops in different parts of<br />

the vegetable garden and add<br />

fresh compost to the existing soil<br />

prior to planting.<br />

In the flower bed<br />

Remove all late winter, spring<br />

flowering annuals, straight into<br />

the compost bin. Add fresh<br />

compost before planting your<br />

summer flowering annuals. These<br />

could include; alyssum, cornflower,<br />

californian poppy, lobelia,<br />

Livingstone daisy, marigold, nemesia,<br />

petunias, phlox, portulacas,<br />

salvias and zinnias.<br />

Blooming bulbs<br />

In most areas flowering is<br />

now almost over. Many like<br />

daffodils can be left undisturbed<br />

to naturalise where they are<br />

growing. Where there is<br />

overcrowding, they can be lifted<br />

later in the season and replanted<br />

in autumn.<br />

Strawberries<br />

The first strawberries begin<br />

to ripen towards the end of the<br />

month. Maintain a ‘layer’ of clean<br />

crushed bark or pea straw around<br />

the plants to provide a clean ‘bed’<br />

for the strawberries. Cover the<br />

plants with bird netting if birds<br />

are a problem.<br />

Fruit trees<br />

Pip and stone fruit are in full<br />

blossom during October (some<br />

stone fruit may have flowered<br />

in late September). Do not be<br />

discouraged by the early loss of<br />

small fruit, it is quite common<br />

for only five to 10 per cent of the<br />

blossom to develop into mature<br />

fruit. Most citrus fruits have finished<br />

‘cropping’ for the year, only<br />

the Seminole tangelo remains to<br />

ripen in <strong>November</strong>. Fertilise all<br />

fruit trees with fruit tree fertiliser,<br />

starting in early October.<br />

Rose care<br />

October and <strong>November</strong> are<br />

two of the ‘best’ months for roses.<br />

Plants are still disease free, grown<br />

Plant your<br />

seedlings<br />

into well<br />

prepared<br />

soil.<br />

rapidly and produce abundant<br />

displays of flowers. Rose and<br />

flower fertiliser can be applied<br />

starting in early October and<br />

repeat every six weeks up until<br />

mid-December. Dead head (the<br />

removal of finished flowers) regularly<br />

to encourage more blooms.<br />

Lawns<br />

As the air and soil temperatures<br />

increase, so does the grass<br />

growth. Mow lawns regularly,<br />

slowly lowering the height of cutting.<br />

Lawn fertiliser can be safely<br />

applied in October, to encourage<br />

the development of a healthy<br />

and durable lawn. October is<br />

the perfect time for re-sowing<br />

patches of the lawn that are struggling.<br />

Add clean topsoil before<br />

sowing fresh grass seed. Attend to<br />

areas that were particularly wet in<br />

winter, additional drainage may<br />

be required.<br />

Herbs<br />

Almost all herbs can now be<br />

safely planted, with the possible<br />

exception of basil (to be planted<br />

in <strong>November</strong>). Plant mint in a<br />

large container or separate from<br />

other herbs otherwise the mint<br />

will smother other herbs and<br />

literally take over you garden.<br />

Plant additional specimens or<br />

the most frequently used herbs,<br />

for example, parsley and chives.<br />

Note, most herbs thrive when<br />

grown in containers.<br />

Ornamental shrubs<br />

Almost all shrubs in the<br />

garden will respond to compost<br />

being spread around the plants<br />

and general garden fertiliser<br />

applied around the base of the<br />

shrubs. Some may require some<br />

light pruning to remove unhealthy<br />

growth or misshapen<br />

branches.<br />

A great time to<br />

plant


Choose plants that<br />

look after themselves<br />

IF YOU ADD up the number of<br />

hours spent watering the garden<br />

each summer, the number might<br />

surprise you.<br />

That’s why plants and flowers<br />

that tend to look after themselves<br />

are most beneficial. Like the<br />

colourful gazania, for example.<br />

This Southern-African native<br />

prefers conditions that are hot,<br />

dry, windy and sunny – the perfect<br />

plant for a long New Zealand<br />

summer.<br />

Because of this, it’s best to position<br />

them in a free-draining area<br />

– along the side of your house,<br />

near your letterbox or, if you’re<br />

lucky enough, outside your beach<br />

house.<br />

Gazania will add a splash of<br />

summer colour, producing flowers<br />

in hot shades of orange, red,<br />

yellow and cream – colours that<br />

also look stunning in pots. In<br />

fact, they’re perfect for the deck<br />

as you can leave them to go about<br />

the business of flowering, without<br />

the need for watering.<br />

Sound like the perfect plant for<br />

you?<br />

When planting, choose an area<br />

with soil that is well drained,<br />

rather than hard and wet. Dig a<br />

hole and pop in your seedling.<br />

Plant your seedlings quite close<br />

together – about 200mm apart -<br />

as they don’t tend to spread too<br />

far outwards when they grow.<br />

It’s also the perfect distance for<br />

covering any gaps should any of<br />

the plants fail to prosper.<br />

In around six to eight weeks<br />

you should be enjoying a flurry of<br />

hot, summer colour that will last<br />

the whole season. Best admired<br />

from the patio.<br />

Hororata Domain — 9am to 5pm<br />

Kilts, whisky and haggis … a taste of<br />

Scotland in Canterbury<br />

It’s time to gather the<br />

clan for the 11th Hororata<br />

Highland Games on<br />

Saturday, 5 <strong>November</strong> 2<strong>02</strong>2.<br />

It’s going to be huge!<br />

This event will be one of the biggest<br />

Scottish gatherings in the Southern<br />

Hemisphere, with 20 pipe bands from<br />

around the South Island, 29 New Zealand<br />

and international heavy athletes, 90<br />

highland dancers, 25 clans, 120 stalls,<br />

230 volunteers and an expected crowd of<br />

10,000 people!<br />

The organisers, Hororata Community<br />

Trust, have been blown away with the<br />

response to this year’s festival after<br />

missing it in 2<strong>02</strong>1. “Our community just<br />

loves converting the Hororata Domain<br />

into the Scottish Highlands for a day, and<br />

it is exciting to be coming back so strong,”<br />

says event manager Cindy Driscoll. “We<br />

have never had this many pipe bands<br />

enter before. The massed bands marching<br />

past at lunchtime will be powerful. And<br />

the field of heavy athletes, both men and<br />

women, is outstanding with competitors<br />

from Australia and Europe travelling to<br />

take on the Kiwis. It will be a clash of the<br />

Titans.”<br />

The best of the best<br />

Current Scottish Highland Games<br />

Association World Champion Vladislav<br />

Tulacek will travel to Hororata from<br />

the Czech Republic to compete in the<br />

Oceania Heavyweight Championship.<br />

Ashburton Kiwi athlete Craig Manson<br />

has embarked on a rigorous training<br />

schedule and will take on the best of the<br />

best at the Hororata Highland Games.<br />

“To have the likes of Vlad come to New<br />

Zealand to take us on at our event is huge,<br />

“ says Craig. “I dream of competing in<br />

Scotland and was not expecting to get the<br />

opportunity to throw against guys like<br />

him here in my own backyard. The calibre<br />

of the whole field is the best we have ever<br />

seen.”<br />

You don’t have to just sit on the sidelines<br />

at the Hororata Highland Games- you can<br />

have a go at tossing cabers, hurling haggis,<br />

eating pies, Tug O’ War, running a Kilted<br />

Mile or donning on the tartan for the<br />

best-dressed lad and lassie.<br />

Cindy describes what you can expect.<br />

“Once you get through the gates, there<br />

are heaps of free activities to have a go<br />

at, no matter your age. Families often<br />

say it is the one event everyone, from<br />

grandparents to toddlers and teenagers,<br />

can enjoy together. We also have musical<br />

performances, Scottish Country dancing<br />

and have-a-go bagpipes in amongst a<br />

huge range of quality market stalls as well<br />

as over 30 food trucks. Don’t miss the<br />

haggis burgers or black pudding!”<br />

Cross Hares Wines<br />

at the Games<br />

Fancy picking up a<br />

locally-grown Pinot Gris<br />

or Pinot Noir at this<br />

year’s Hororata Highland<br />

Games on the 5th of<br />

<strong>November</strong>? You’ll be<br />

in luck with Tai-Tapu’s<br />

Cross Hares Wine, run<br />

by Natalie and Warrick,<br />

as they will be selling<br />

their boutique wine on<br />

this fun day out.<br />

As confessed one-eyed<br />

Cantabrians, they are all<br />

about promoting where<br />

they live and why they<br />

live there. Living on the<br />

foothills of the Port Hills<br />

and the gateway to Banks<br />

Peninsula, their Tai Tapu<br />

vineyard is where they have “embraced<br />

growing grapes and making good wine”.<br />

Their label came about from the hares that<br />

run wild between the vines.<br />

Being a boutique winery in the true<br />

sense, Natalie says, “We do everything<br />

ourselves, and we live at the vineyard.”<br />

Also, as hard-working and enthusiastic<br />

vineyard owners,<br />

“blood, sweat and<br />

tears” are involved.<br />

Cross Hares Wine is a<br />

member of Sustainable<br />

Winegrowing New<br />

Zealand and are now<br />

Biogro certified organic<br />

making use of friends,<br />

family, and fun to<br />

hand pick grapes with<br />

excellent quality control.<br />

The excellence of<br />

their wine Pinot was<br />

confirmed with a Gold<br />

Award for their Pinot<br />

Long Bow Pinot Noir<br />

2019, while their 2018<br />

Pinot Gris won a Bronze<br />

Award at the 2<strong>02</strong>1 NZ<br />

International Wine Awards. So make sure<br />

you visit Natalie and Warrick at the Cross<br />

Hares Wine stand and be tempted to buy a<br />

bottle or more of their local wine.<br />

You can find their cellar door at<br />

SELWYN RURAL LIFE<br />

A stunning spring show!<br />

The Ellesmere A & P Association is<br />

beaming from ear to ear after the recent<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Spring Show was an outstanding<br />

success, pulling in crowds of over 14,000<br />

from far and wide to a record turnout. A<br />

fabulous return since Covid restrictions<br />

were relaxed.<br />

People started pouring in when the<br />

gates opened at 8am, staying well after the<br />

grandest of Grand Parades while the bands<br />

played on.<br />

There was something for everyone with<br />

extensive displays ranging from furry<br />

farmyard friends to purebred sheep; kids<br />

and their calves to gleaming state-of-theart<br />

farm machinery; side shows to dog<br />

trials; Clydesdales to miniature ponies;<br />

alpacas to Victoria sponges; cooking<br />

demonstrations to historical exhibitions;<br />

horse shows to industry stalls; smoking<br />

hot BBQ, shearing, Wearable Arts, and<br />

wood chopping competitions, plus a<br />

fantastic vintage spectacle of static and<br />

working vehicles and machinery to<br />

celebrate over 150 years of the Ellesmere A<br />

& P Association.<br />

And what better way to end the Grand<br />

Parade than to have the majestic turnout<br />

of a dozen traction engines steaming up<br />

the Bayleys Main Ring and signalling<br />

the end of the day with an orchestrated<br />

traction whistle symphony giving<br />

everyone present tingles of yesteryear<br />

delight.<br />

This year’s Supreme Animal of Show<br />

went to P and F Williams of Omihi with<br />

their Southdown ewe and lambs; the<br />

Personality of the Show Cup to Wilma<br />

Grant; the Chris Abbott Memorial Trophy<br />

for Long Service Show Day Supporter to<br />

Stuart Brannigan; and the Bayleys Matson<br />

and Allan Young Achiever Award to Sam<br />

Bailey.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Spring Show president David<br />

Birkett was pleased with the day. “It was<br />

marvellous to see so many people return<br />

to the show. After a two-year break from<br />

public entry, it was fantastic that the show<br />

was as popular as ever. It takes such a huge<br />

effort by volunteers and the community to<br />

put the day on, but it is all worth it when<br />

you see the delight on everyone’s faces.”<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> Spring Show is the jewel in<br />

the crown for Ellesmere, so it’s no surprise<br />

this event has stood the test of time,<br />

offering something for everyone; least of<br />

all reuniting old friends and family for a<br />

truly classic day out in the country.<br />

SELWYN RURAL LIFE<br />

50 years in the<br />

Spinning a Woolly Yarn is available<br />

instore at Darfield PostShop.<br />

sheep and wool<br />

industry<br />

For over 100 years, sheep farming was<br />

New Zealand’s most important agricultural<br />

industry, with the sheep population<br />

reaching over 70 million in the 1980s. This<br />

industry brought many jobs, and the types<br />

of people drawn to this work were not afraid<br />

to do the hard yards.<br />

It’s not surprising then that there are many<br />

tales to be told by someone working in the<br />

industry. The Courtnay A & P Show being<br />

held on Saturday, 19 <strong>November</strong> 2<strong>02</strong>2, at the<br />

Kirwee Showgrounds will see Christchurch’s<br />

David Cone launch his autobiography<br />

“Spinning a Woolly Yarn”. This book is a<br />

real-life look at his 50 years in the sheep and<br />

wool industry around the globe.<br />

David left school at 15 years of age and<br />

began working on farms. After gaining a<br />

Diploma in Wool Classing, his journey in<br />

sheep stations meant he encountered many<br />

situations and characters that left a lasting<br />

impression on him. “Spinning a woolly<br />

Yarn” includes anecdotes about 30 rural<br />

characters that he came across, the ups and<br />

downs of the industry and rural life and<br />

tales of the shearing sheds.<br />

David’s recount is full of laughs about<br />

colourful characters and memorable<br />

occasions. His association with sheep<br />

wasn’t just in the shearing shed. He is also<br />

renowned as a sheep racing trainer with a<br />

team of prized sheep called the Baa Blacks<br />

involved in numerous events.<br />

As a ‘kiwi bloke’ and entrepreneur, David<br />

has never been afraid to give things a go.<br />

Encouraged by others to tell his story,<br />

David began writing his memoirs eight<br />

years ago. Creating the book, David says,<br />

“Ideas are easy; the hardest part was getting<br />

published.” However, on a shoestring budget<br />

and with assistance with the structure and<br />

editing, “Spinning a Woolly Yarn” was<br />

recently published.<br />

This outcome was a significant<br />

achievement, and David only recommends<br />

the process “if you’re not a quitter”. The<br />

book will be launched at the Courtnay A &<br />

P Show with a presentation about the book,<br />

and former World Champion Blade Shearer<br />

Peter Cassidy will also speak.<br />

Christmas isn’t far away, and Spinning<br />

a Woolly Yarn may be the perfect gift for<br />

someone interested in rural life and who<br />

enjoys a good laugh. The book has plenty<br />

of photos, yarns about David’s life, and<br />

characters he came across in his many years<br />

in the sheep and wool industry.<br />

So, take the time to see the informative<br />

presentation at the Courtnay A & P Show<br />

on 19 <strong>November</strong>, and pick up a copy of<br />

David’s book to enjoy reading yourself or to<br />

wrap up as a gift for Christmas.<br />

Spinning a Woolly Yarn is also<br />

available at Darfield PostShop. For more<br />

information on his book contact David on<br />

davidbcone@gmail.com.<br />

Colourful<br />

characters and<br />

memorable<br />

BOARDING SCHOOL<br />

Wednesday <strong>November</strong> 2 2<strong>02</strong>2 <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> 35<br />

Students flourish and thrive at<br />

Christchurch Girls’ High<br />

Choosing the right school for your daughter is an<br />

important step. With boarding another dimension<br />

enters into the equation. Not only do parents desire<br />

a stimulating, engaging learning environment which<br />

challenges students to achieve personal excellence, they<br />

also need a safe, comfortable and happy living space.<br />

Christchurch Girls’ High School is a purpose built<br />

school for girls which places young women at the<br />

centre of education. Acland, the boarding hostel<br />

associated with the school, establishes positive<br />

relationships which create a strong sense of family.<br />

This feeling is further enhanced by the completely<br />

refurbished main homestead. A landscaped pool area<br />

and access to tennis courts, complement the living<br />

arrangements.<br />

Boarders are supervised by a supportive, experienced<br />

and caring team. A Director of Boarding leads her staff<br />

in ensuring the welfare of the students is paramount.<br />

All nutritional needs are met by a professional,<br />

friendly, on-site food services team.<br />

In this environment students flourish and thrive.<br />

They learn to manage selves, relate to others and<br />

participate and contribute. In the process, they<br />

develop resilience, independence, a good work ethic<br />

and lasting friendships.<br />

Learning and living at Christchurch Girls’ High<br />

School is tailored specifically to meet the needs of<br />

today’s young women.<br />

MG powering into EV market<br />

IT WASN’T THE ideal start to an<br />

evaluation.<br />

Just one day into my time in<br />

an MG HS PHEV Plus, a plug-in<br />

hybrid electric sport utility vehicle,<br />

I thought I’d take the opportunity<br />

to boost the battery capacity at a<br />

designated charge port.<br />

However, I couldn’t get the key<br />

fob to register and was scratching<br />

my head wondering what to do<br />

next when a kind Nissan Leaf<br />

owner, who had pulled up beside<br />

me, offered his fob to charge the<br />

MG as well as his car. That was<br />

fine until 50min later when it was<br />

time for me to leave I discovered I<br />

needed his fob to release the MG<br />

from the charger. There was no<br />

sign of my Samaritan and I was<br />

trapped plugged in and attached to<br />

the charge port.<br />

After much detective work, I<br />

managed to locate the Leaf owner<br />

and he came back some time later<br />

to release his car and the MG.<br />

Lesson learnt there – make sure the<br />

fob is registered to all charge point<br />

providers.<br />

If you’ll pardon the pun,<br />

the long-standing brand MG<br />

is powering into our market<br />

with electric vehicles and plugin<br />

hybrids, supply is relatively<br />

plentiful and all models are priced<br />

for affordability.<br />

MG has the fully electric ZS,<br />

a small sport utility vehicle that<br />

I’m about to drive soon, it sits<br />

alongside the HS PHEV SUV a car<br />

one-step bigger. At 4.5m the HS sits<br />

in the mid-size market and has all<br />

the benefits an electric motor and<br />

petrol engine can provide.<br />

What’s more, the HS PHEV<br />

is priced so that those who are<br />

heading in the eco-friendly<br />

direction can do so without<br />

breaking the bank – the HS is here<br />

in two specifications Excite and<br />

Essence that list at $51,990 and<br />

$55,990 respectively, the evaluation<br />

car was the latter, and it is fully<br />

functional and equipped with a<br />

high range of specification.<br />

Before you do the maths,<br />

take into account as well the<br />

Government will open its purse<br />

and refund you $5750 on both<br />

as part of its clean car rebate<br />

programme. It gets even better<br />

from there, MG’s prices include on<br />

road costs, seven year warranty,<br />

seven year roadside assistance<br />

and seven year warrant of fitness<br />

checks.<br />

What’s more, you are buying into<br />

a very well recognised brand, there<br />

are many who will buy an MG<br />

solely as a way of reconnecting with<br />

the nameplate they have known as<br />

desirable during the heady days of<br />

English sports cars, convertibles<br />

and reliable sedans.<br />

Even though development<br />

work and design is carried out in<br />

SMOOTH LINES: The MG HS PHEV has traditional sport<br />

utility vehicle characteristics, practicality has been a<br />

manufacturing priority.<br />

MG HS PHEV: Plug-in and charge up, cover a distance of 63km without using petrol.<br />

the United Kingdom, MG today<br />

is owned and operated out of<br />

the giant Shanghai Automotive<br />

Industry Corporation in China.<br />

SAIC is a well-established<br />

conglomerate that has had<br />

connections with General Motors,<br />

Volkswagen and a number of heavy<br />

vehicle manufacturers.<br />

Those who are working in the<br />

Christchurch MG dealership are<br />

passionate about the product, and<br />

the brand has a high profile in the<br />

city, you can tell that things are<br />

ticking over nicely for MG here,<br />

there are a healthy number on our<br />

roads and the dealership is busy.<br />

In terms of the HS PHEV’s<br />

drive system, it is not so difficult<br />

to explain. In EV mode the HS is<br />

powered by a 16.6kWh lithium-ion<br />

battery, its high rating will give you<br />

range, according to the distributors<br />

up to 63km between charges. In<br />

normal EV fashion charging can<br />

be done in two ways, but you will<br />

need two different cables. One is a<br />

type 2 to type 2 that I used at a DC<br />

rapid charging point taking about<br />

45min to charge from low to 80 per<br />

cent.<br />

The other is a three-pin cable<br />

that can be plugged in from a<br />

domestic supply, MG claims an<br />

estimated five hours to fully charge.<br />

The HS PHEV also has a fourcylinder<br />

turbocharged petrol<br />

engine. Its capacity is 1.5-litre and<br />

is rated at 119kW and 250Nm,<br />

healthy figures that sure provide<br />

• Price – MG HS PHEV Plus,<br />

$55,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4574mm; width, 1876mm;<br />

height, 1664mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

front-wheeldrive,<br />

1490cc, 119kW<br />

(+90kW), 250Nm<br />

(+230Nm), continuously<br />

variable automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 6.9sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 1.7l/100km<br />

solid momentum. Add in the<br />

90kW and 230Nm from the<br />

electric motor and you have a<br />

powerful driveline combination<br />

that will send you to 100km/h from<br />

a standstill in 6.9sec. It will also<br />

complete a highway overtake in<br />

5.6sec (80-120km/h).<br />

The power flow is instant, when<br />

charged, the electric motor will<br />

give you most of the impetus,<br />

petrol power takes on largely a<br />

back-up role. When activated it is<br />

rather dynamic, although it makes<br />

its presence known in a quiet and<br />

orderly fashion.<br />

My daughter took ill while on a<br />

field trip and I had to make a hasty<br />

trip to the shores of Lake Ellesmere<br />

to get her medical attention.<br />

On that journey the HS PHEV<br />

dispensed the kilometres with<br />

little fuss, it is quiet and smooth.<br />

None of that is a surprise given the<br />

mechanicals aren’t under a great<br />

deal of load.<br />

A couple of tight corners<br />

on those roads were dealt to<br />

with balance and stability<br />

underneath. The suspension is fully<br />

independent and it is engineered<br />

with a certain amount of firmness<br />

that exudes a dynamic feel. The<br />

high grade variant gets wheels<br />

an inch in diameter larger than<br />

the entry model, and the 235/50<br />

x 18in Michelin tyres offer a<br />

surefootedness and steering feel<br />

that is quite involving.<br />

More importantly is MG’s fuel<br />

usage claim. Rated at 1.7-litres<br />

per 100km, the HS PHEV can<br />

only achieve that at best possible<br />

usage. My sudden excursion<br />

to Southbridge did little to<br />

enhance economy, but I did take<br />

the evaluation car back to the<br />

dealership showing just 4.5l/100km<br />

on the readout that I thought was<br />

respectable and is something that<br />

can surely be improved with a<br />

light throttle and sensible driving<br />

behaviour.<br />

There’s no doubt about the<br />

success of MG in New Zealand<br />

at present, after years with little<br />

product in our market it’s a brand<br />

that has had major resurgence in<br />

recent years. There’s good choice<br />

between petrol only and hybrid<br />

or electric, which is a part of the<br />

market that has taken off with a<br />

hiss and a roar in recent times.<br />

Kirkstyle Homestead<br />

Bedrooms: 6 Living Rooms: 3 Bathrooms: 3 Garages:3<br />

Exceptional opportunity to purchase a colonial homestead<br />

set on 6.19ha, built in 1910 and extended in 1920 with a<br />

sympathetic recent renovation with modernised kitchen,<br />

bathrooms and internal access garage, thus repurposed for a<br />

modern lifestyle.<br />

The distinctive features from a bygone era cannot be<br />

replicated - quality materials, high level of craftmanship,<br />

open fires and generous stud heights and room proportions<br />

breathes elegance.<br />

Surrounded by spacious green lawns and mature trees, the<br />

460sqm home consists of six bedrooms, three bathrooms,<br />

formal dining room, drawing room, family lounge, and triple<br />

car garaging.<br />

An indoor heated swimming pool in the garden adds to the<br />

appeal of the property with an elevated sunny disposition<br />

with outstanding mountain views over a copse of redwood,<br />

oaks, silver birch and Oregon. The ‘coup de grace is nearly<br />

200 rhododendrons, many 80 years or older - a rare find in a<br />

magic place just 40 minutes to Christchurch airport, and just<br />

5 minutes from Darfield.<br />

Looking for someone with vision<br />

Located in Hororata this 67.69-hectare (more or less) bare land property provides a fantastic opportunity for<br />

someone with vision. The location could be described as some of the best views over the Canterbury Plains. Owned<br />

by the same family for a number of years. An area renowned for both forestry and farming, with heavy soils and<br />

relatively reliable rainfall, you could either land bank or develop.... the choice is yours. Hororata has a vibrant rural<br />

community offering the 'outdoorsy type' endless activities, including mountain bike tracks, jetboating, fishing,<br />

hunting and numerous ski fields all close by. There is a great primary school in Hororata and with Darfield nearby as<br />

well as further schooling options in Christchurch. We have not seen an opportunity like this for a long time and<br />

would recommend those who love adding value, to get in touch.<br />

What to ask a real estate agent<br />

Selling a home is a big life decision, both<br />

financially and emotionally. The journey<br />

can be a roller coaster, which is why<br />

finding a licensed real estate agent you feel<br />

comfortable with is so important.<br />

“Remember, you’re looking for the<br />

person who you’re going to trust to sell<br />

what’s likely to be your biggest asset. Their<br />

success (or failure) will have a marked<br />

impact on your new life plan,” says the<br />

Real Estate Authority (REA).<br />

New Zealand has about 15,000 real<br />

estate agents who help people navigate<br />

big-deal transactions every day.<br />

“The trick is to find the one that will be<br />

best for your situation”.<br />

If you’re going to get the best out of your<br />

real estate agent – and they’re going to get<br />

the best price and conditions for your<br />

property – then you need<br />

to put the work in before<br />

you sign with anyone. That<br />

means basing your decision<br />

on more than gut feel or the<br />

fact that their office was easy<br />

to park outside.<br />

You need someone who<br />

understands what it takes<br />

to sell a property like yours<br />

and a proven track record to<br />

show for it. You also need<br />

to feel comfortable with<br />

them personally – if<br />

you don’t find them<br />

pleasant to deal<br />

with then buyers<br />

may not enjoy<br />

the experience either.<br />

If you’re not sure how to get the ball<br />

rolling, ask the agent the following<br />

questions:<br />

- What do you know about my<br />

neighbourhood? How are sales in this area<br />

and who is buying?<br />

- Do you work independently or with<br />

other agents?<br />

- What kind of advertising or marketing<br />

do you use – and which ones will work for<br />

my property? What extra marketing costs<br />

will I have to pay?<br />

- What are your commission rates? Are<br />

you open to negotiation?<br />

- Do you have testimonials or references<br />

from people whose properties you have<br />

sold in the last three months?<br />

- What do you recommend I do to<br />

prepare my home for sale?<br />

- Why should I hire you?<br />

Asking these questions helps you<br />

form a picture of the agent’s experience,<br />

knowledge and how they structure their<br />

business.<br />

These days you’d expect an agent’s<br />

marketing plan to have an online focus<br />

that includes major property websites and<br />

social media. Find out what the marketing<br />

plan will cost and ask them to explain<br />

their rationale – you’re the one paying for<br />

this service, after all.<br />

Remember that you can negotiate on<br />

the marketing costs and commission –<br />

don’t be afraid to ask the agents if they<br />

are interested in an incentive-based<br />

commission, where they will earn more<br />

commission if they sell your property<br />

above a certain price.<br />

Once you’ve found the agent you think<br />

you’d like to work with, check them out<br />

on the Real Estate Authority’s (REA)<br />

online public register, which will tell you<br />

if the agent holds a current licence. This is<br />

important because it’s illegal to carry out<br />

real estate agency work without a licence<br />

and if you deal with an unlicensed person<br />

the REA will be unable to help you if<br />

things go wrong.<br />

When you’ve decided on an agent, the<br />

terms and conditions of your contract will<br />

be set out in an agency agreement that<br />

you both sign. This is a legal document,<br />

so make sure you get advice from a lawyer<br />

and that you understand your rights and<br />

responsibilities.<br />

King-sized comfort<br />

The sense of space this home offers is sure to impress. The huge open-plan living room will host your family and<br />

friends with ease over the upcoming holiday season, with the equally impressive lounge providing a quiet place to<br />

relax and unwind. Multiple doors from both rooms open onto the sizeable deck, creating a seamless indoor/outdoor<br />

flow to the large garden. The central kitchen features stone benchtops, a 1 1/2 oven, double fridge space and a walkin<br />

pantry. The bedroom configuration has one of the four double bedrooms situated away from the others, making<br />

it a perfect guest room or home office. This home can be temperature-controlled by the ducted heated and cooling<br />

system, but for that extra cosy feeling during the winter months, the log burner is a treat. The double garage has a<br />

handy drive-thru door to the rear utility and off-street trailer parking area.<br />

Looking for a Property?<br />

What really counts<br />

You are in the market for a new property,<br />

scrolling the Internet, examining<br />

properties for sale and zeroing in on those<br />

with potential. They might be in locations<br />

that offer cheaper land, larger houses, or<br />

convenience to work or school. You may<br />

have visited show homes and open homes<br />

becoming confused, overwhelmed or<br />

swept away with emotional factors like<br />

having everything new, or extra features<br />

such as three car garaging.<br />

To be happy with your choice, list the<br />

features that you need, considering:<br />

• Family space – Is there room for<br />

the children to play indoors and for<br />

television and entertainment units?<br />

Should this be open plan or separated?<br />

• Kitchen – What needs to be in your<br />

kitchen? How serious are you about<br />

a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim or<br />

something that offers a practical solution<br />

to the way you use your kitchen?<br />

• Bedroom sizes – What are optimum<br />

sizes? Smaller bedrooms may translate<br />

to slightly lower building costs while<br />

extra space can be useful. When looking<br />

at existing homes, consider whether the<br />

size of each bedroom is sufficient.<br />

• Garaging – A standard double garage<br />

once two cars are parked there offers<br />

little space for the toys. What toys<br />

do you have and could they live with<br />

the lawnmower in a garden shed, a<br />

cheaper option to three car garaging?<br />

If the budget allows and a larger garage<br />

with workshop is important, make it a<br />

selection priority.<br />

• Size of land – Lifestyle properties offer<br />

space for children, pets, hobbies, an<br />

expansive garden and perhaps a homerun<br />

business but they require work so<br />

are not for everyone and a compact<br />

section might be more sensible if a tight<br />

budget or busy lifestyle.<br />

• Bathrooms – Second and third<br />

bathrooms are great in homes with<br />

teenagers and a wet shower room is<br />

ideal for young children. A bath might<br />

be fashionable though is often not used<br />

and its absence could mean a more<br />

spacious bathroom.<br />

• Laundry – Would a laundry in the<br />

garage do the job?<br />

• Storage – How much storage do you<br />

need? Weigh up what can truly be<br />

stored in the garage once vehicles are<br />

in, a preference in winter. Garages vary<br />

in size so check the size to ensure your<br />

vehicles will fit. Look also at where<br />

else the house offers storage capacity<br />

such as in hall cupboards, a large hot<br />

water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes<br />

(check their width and depth), walkin<br />

robe, attic storage trusses, as well as<br />

the potential for hooks and shelving<br />

in the garage for bikes, tools, garden<br />

equipment and even kayaks.<br />

• Off-street parking – How many<br />

vehicles can be parked on the driveway?<br />

Will this space be sufficient?<br />

• Garden - Is there sufficient space<br />

for your children to play or for<br />

entertaining?<br />

A checklist will allow you to determine<br />

what will suit your needs, the point of<br />

the exercise, saving you time looking at<br />

properties or potential house designs<br />

while assisting you to decide whether<br />

to buy a new or existing home with<br />

both options having advantages and<br />

disadvantages.<br />

What do you have to tell potential<br />

buyers when selling your house?<br />

When you’ve lived in a property for a<br />

while it’s easy to forget some of its quirks.<br />

You might be used to the fact that the<br />

front gate doesn’t shut properly, or that<br />

the bathroom windows need fixing. Any<br />

potential buyers will be able to spot issues<br />

like this when they inspect the property –<br />

and can choose to fix them if they purchase<br />

it. But it’s a lot harder for them to identify<br />

other things you might have forgotten<br />

about, like the fact that you didn’t bother<br />

getting the appropriate consents from the<br />

council when you built the deck 25 years<br />

ago.<br />

You might think the deck is fine, but you<br />

need to front up about the consent issue,<br />

not least because it’s the decent thing to do.<br />

“When you’re selling a property you are<br />

legally obliged to share all the relevant<br />

information about it,” says the Real Estate<br />

Agents Authority (REAA).<br />

“If work has been done on the property<br />

during your ownership, either by you or<br />

someone else, the standard terms of the<br />

sale and purchase agreement require the<br />

seller to warrant that any legally required<br />

permits or consents were obtained. If you<br />

knowingly fail to disclose unconsented<br />

works, you are in breach of contract. This<br />

means there is a risk that the sale could fall<br />

over or that you could run into problems<br />

prior to settlement. Even worse, the buyer<br />

could take you to court for breach of<br />

warranty.”<br />

Your first step should be to discuss the<br />

issue with your licensed real estate agent<br />

and your lawyer. They are likely to advise<br />

that you are better off to disclose anything<br />

unconsented, or to strike out the applicable<br />

vendor warranties clause in the sale and<br />

purchase agreement.<br />

“Once the real estate agent is aware of the<br />

situation, they are bound by their Code of<br />

Conduct to disclose it to any prospective<br />

buyers. If you tell them about the deck or<br />

any other issues to do with the property,<br />

but ask them not to tell anyone, they are<br />

required to stop working for you.”<br />

Similar disclosure issues can arise over<br />

more sensitive matters. Some sellers worry<br />

about whether or not to tell an agent or<br />

prospective buyers about an issue that<br />

doesn’t relate to the physical state of the<br />

property – such as it being the scene of a<br />

murder, suicide or violent crime.<br />

Here, deciding what to disclose is less<br />

straightforward.<br />

“The REAA advises agents to take a<br />

cautious approach and to consider each<br />

situation on its facts, while recognising the<br />

individual circumstances.”<br />

The High Court has said that a more<br />

recent event, especially one that might<br />

have gained some notoriety in the local<br />

neighbourhood, may have more bearing on<br />

a prospective buyer’s view of the property<br />

than a historic one. The location of the<br />

event (whether it took place in the grounds<br />

of the property or inside the house) and<br />

whether the property has been lived in since<br />

it happened, as well as the likely reaction<br />

of potential buyers, should also be taken<br />

into account. The death of someone from<br />

natural causes at the property does not<br />

need to be disclosed, as this is considered<br />

an everyday occurrence.<br />

“If you are in this situation as a seller, it’s<br />

best to discuss what to do with your real<br />

estate agent.”<br />

“They cannot tell prospective buyers<br />

without your consent – and if they decide<br />

that a sensitive issue should be disclosed<br />

but you don’t agree, then they must cease<br />

to act for you.”<br />

Whatever the situation, whether it’s<br />

unconsented work or a tragic event, honesty<br />

is the best policy. Talk to your agent about<br />

how the disclosure will be handled. There<br />

is no need to advertise the information<br />

or tell everyone who wanders along to an<br />

open home, but potential buyers who have<br />

indicated an interest in making an offer<br />

must be told.<br />

choose. The expansive open-plan kitchen, lounge and dining<br />

area interlinks with a second formal living space & flows out to<br />

a large-scale decked area overlooking the beautifully manicured<br />

private section. Despite the feeling of peaceful seclusion, it’s<br />

just a 10-minute stroll from Rolleston Square to put you within<br />

extremely easy reach of endless everyday amenities. Your<br />

earliest viewing is encouraged as properties like this are in high<br />

DeaDLine SaLe<br />

demand! Contact Mike today for more information. ** All offers<br />

to be presented 3pm, 10th <strong>November</strong> (unless sold prior).<br />

Your guide to all things Real Estate<br />

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

Create your home office<br />

space with purpose<br />

27<br />

Not everyone has returned to working at<br />

an office or business space, and the benefits of<br />

working from home are still advantageous for<br />

some people. However, making do with a small<br />

desk tucked away in a corner or a makeshift<br />

office space is no longer ideal. Your home office<br />

space’s main requirement is that it works for<br />

you and ensures productivity. Apart from its<br />

functionality, it must be comfortable, practical<br />

and aesthetically pleasing as it is still part of<br />

your home.<br />

The location of your office space is a<br />

significant consideration. Choose a quiet area<br />

of your home in either a dedicated room or<br />

a private place where you can take necessary<br />

video calls and work uninterrupted. If possible,<br />

place your workstation to make the most of<br />

natural lighting or ensure there is optimal<br />

artificial lighting.<br />

Have your workstation arranged with all<br />

the necessary equipment but avoid clutter and<br />

distractions. Your work area may include room<br />

for your desk, chair, laptop, printer and suitable<br />

storage to keep your items organised and close<br />

at hand.<br />

Personalise your space but choose a simple<br />

style with minimum décor to keep you focused<br />

and motivated. For example, you can include<br />

plants, wall art, shelving, colourful rugs, and<br />

storage containers. However, be mindful that<br />

wall art may be visible during a video call. For<br />

those with limited space, it might be best to<br />

choose a multifunctional desk and versatile<br />

workstation that the family can use.<br />

Look after your health and well-being by<br />

choosing an ergonomic chair. Your chair can<br />

still be stylish, but it must be comfortable<br />

and help you to maintain good posture. Most<br />

ergonomic chairs offer adjustable seat height<br />

and tilt adjustment for the back and headrest. If<br />

you are using your laptop for an extended time,<br />

don’t be tempted to work from the couch.<br />

Having the option to work from home can<br />

significantly improve your work-life balance.<br />

Therefore, as working from home continues to<br />

be commonplace, keep up your productivity<br />

and motivation by ensuring you have a suitable<br />

workspace that meets your needs.<br />
