Concern raised of danger<br />

posed by stormwater basin<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

A NEW stormwater basin in one<br />

of the district’s highly sought<br />

after subdivisions is contributing<br />

to flooding rather than fixing it,<br />

say residents.<br />

Barton Fields residents are<br />

also concerned the basin itself, at<br />

almost 3m deep with no fencing<br />

or lighting, presents a drowning<br />

risk to passersby, particularly at<br />

night.<br />

In response, the district<br />

council is reviewing the basin to<br />

ensure it meets requirements, but<br />

in terms of flooding, say so far<br />

it appears to be “performing as<br />

expected.”<br />

Barton Fields developer<br />

spokesperson Colin Pywell, of<br />

Faulks Investments Ltd, told<br />

residents on Facebook after a<br />

flooding event in September<br />

that it would not happen again<br />

as a filter cloth had now been<br />

removed.<br />

Pywell did not return calls<br />

from the <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> by deadline<br />

on Monday.<br />

Barton Fields resident Sarah<br />

O’Brien outlined the concerns of<br />

herself and fellow residents in a<br />

letter to the developer’s lawyers<br />

and the district council last week.<br />

one heck of a pain when<br />

there is too much of it.<br />

On page 1 today, we reveal<br />

a stormwater basin built earlier<br />

this year didn’t perform<br />

well in the big downpours in<br />

July and September.<br />

reviewing the basin to ensure<br />

it meets requirements, but<br />

in terms of flooding it says<br />

the basin appears to be “performing<br />

ROLLESTON Residents<br />

Association members are<br />

battling the district council to<br />

put the word “library” under<br />

the name of Te Ara Ātea on its<br />

signage.<br />

Acting chair Jens Christensen<br />

said residents had asked the<br />

association to pursue the matter,<br />

as they believed just having the<br />

name Te Ara Ātea on its own<br />

was confusing to newcomers.<br />

“They don’t know what the<br />

building’s for,” Christensen said.<br />

He said he had had his battles<br />

with the district council<br />

over the issue, and it was still<br />

ongoing. Staff were refusing the<br />

request.<br />

Te Ara Ātea is a library and<br />

multi-use community facility,<br />

which replaced the former<br />

Rolleston Library, opening<br />

December 2 last year.<br />

Meaning “the unobstructed<br />

trail to the world and beyond,”<br />

the name was gifted to the<br />

community by Te Taumutu<br />

Rūnanga, which worked in<br />

partnership with the district<br />

council on the $22.7 million<br />

building and landscape.<br />

In a statement emailed in<br />

response to the <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong>,<br />

the district council avoided the<br />

question of whether it would<br />

give consideration<br />

to having the world<br />

“Library” under the<br />

words Te Ara Ātea in<br />

signage.<br />

Group manager community<br />

services and<br />

facilities Denise Kidd<br />

said there were many<br />

functions housed in the “treasure<br />

box, multi-use facility” of<br />

SMALL FIRES BEING LIT<br />

Multiple small fires have been<br />

started in Foster and Brookside<br />

parks over the past three to four<br />

weeks. Rolleston Volunteer Fire<br />

Brigade chief Cam Kenyon wants<br />

people to continue being vigilant.<br />

Kenyon thought it could be children<br />

or teenagers lighting bushes and<br />

little fires in the parks. If anyone<br />

saw anything suspicious such as<br />

“kids playing with matches or<br />

lighters” he encouraged them to<br />

phone 111 immediately. Meanwhile,<br />

the careless use of fireworks caused<br />

a small cabbage tree fire in Lincoln<br />

on Guy Fawkes night. Lincoln<br />

deputy chief fire officer Ritchie<br />

of “pretty quickly” to make sure<br />

it did not spread to the residential<br />

property on Robert St. Police also<br />

They are calling for the developer<br />

and district council to<br />

remedy the design and ensure<br />

its safety, and that they will be<br />

liable for any associated property<br />

damage or accidents.<br />

The dry stormwater storage<br />

grass basin was installed this<br />

year for taking runoff from a<br />

new stage of the subdivision,<br />

currently under construction.<br />

In the heavy rain event of<br />

July, water flooded out onto<br />

the subdivision streets of<br />

Carnaveron Drive and Faulks<br />

Drive, from the conduit that the<br />

basin drained into, stranding<br />

some people in their homes.<br />

Flooding occurred again on<br />

the two streets in heavy rain in<br />

September.<br />

O’Brien, who has lived at<br />

Barton Fields for three years,<br />

was frustrated to see stormwater<br />

being diverted to that area of the<br />

subdivision and causing flooding.<br />

“The system is poorly<br />

designed and not considerate<br />

of the dangers and problems<br />

it poses to the neighbouring<br />

properties, local residents and<br />

the already overloaded drainage<br />

systems.”<br />

While the developer had<br />

since installed a wider pipe and<br />

removed the filter cloth, she<br />

doubted these would resolve<br />

the issue, claiming the wider<br />

stormwater system was already<br />

at capacity.<br />

In terms of safety concerns,<br />

O’Brien said the basin was too<br />

deep and with steep sides. Additionally,<br />

its edges became soft<br />

when it was full, making it easy<br />

to slip and sink into. It not only<br />

needed redesigning, but also<br />

HORORATA welcomed 10,000<br />

people to the 11th Highland<br />

Games on Saturday, one of the<br />

biggest Scottish gatherings in the<br />

southern hemisphere.<br />

Six hundred competitors took<br />

park in traditional Scottish sports.<br />

The games hosted the first pipe<br />

They combined to play together<br />

in the massed bands’ march.<br />

Athletes from Australia and<br />

New Zealand battled for the<br />

Oceania Heavyweight Championship<br />

over eight disciplines<br />

including the caber toss and the<br />

Hororata stones. Australian, Terry<br />

Sparkes, retained the title he won<br />

in 2019.<br />

The games also hosted the New<br />

Zealand Heavyweight Championship<br />

won by Ashburton’s Craig<br />

Manson. The women’s championship<br />

was hotly contested with<br />

Australian Lily Riley taking the<br />

title.<br />

Red Wiard travelled from Brisbane<br />

to compete in Hororata for<br />

the first time and was blown away<br />

by the event.<br />

“I am so grateful for this experience.<br />

It was a massive day. Being<br />

in the arena with 10,000 people<br />

cheering me on made me feel<br />

like a celebrity. I am going home<br />

with second place, a few personal<br />

Have a go is another part of the<br />

to enter the arena to see if they<br />

can toss a caber, play the pipes or<br />

be victorious in the tug of war.<br />

Cindy Driscoll from the<br />

Hororata Community Trust said<br />

the have a go element is a most<br />

“This gives people an intimate<br />

experience of the Highland<br />

Games because they don’t just<br />

watch but are part of it, and then<br />

some catch the bug and end up<br />

becoming competitors.”<br />

In a show of community spirit<br />

230 volunteers joined the Hororata<br />

Community Trust to make<br />

the Hororata Highland Games<br />

happen.<br />

“The games is unique in the<br />

way it celebrates Scottish culture<br />

with a Kiwi twist but what really<br />

makes it special is the passion<br />

people give in to making the<br />

event happen.<br />

“Our community is not defined<br />

by lines on a map. A huge group<br />

coming together, bringing passion<br />

and energy for a common cause.<br />

Legal Matters<br />

Disputes Tribunal –<br />

Whilst your lawyer<br />

can’t appear, we can<br />

help you prepare!<br />

Formerly known as the “Small<br />

Claims Court” until 1989, the<br />

Disputes Tribunal is a much<br />

quicker, less formal, and<br />

cheaper way to settle disputes.<br />

The Tribunal is for lower value<br />

claims up to a maximum of<br />

$30,000. If the value of your<br />

claim initially exceeds the<br />

$30,000 threshold you may<br />

choose to head to the District<br />

Court or agree to cap your<br />

claim to $30,000. This is often a<br />

strategic decision and one that<br />

we are well practised in advising<br />

on.<br />

Your hearing will be run by a<br />

referee who will make a decision<br />

on the dispute. The decision is<br />

generally delivered on the day<br />

and is legally binding. This means<br />

that you must follow the decision<br />

even if you don’t agree with it.<br />

There may be limited rights of<br />

appeal that we can discuss with<br />

you on a fact specific basis.<br />

If you are served with Disputes<br />

Tribunal proceedings we<br />

encourage you to check:<br />

1. Preparation timeframes. Do<br />

you need to collate evidence,<br />

file a response, have all the<br />

attachments been provided.<br />

We can assist with all of these<br />

things, and more.<br />

2. Does the Disputes Tribunal<br />

have jurisdiction to hear the<br />

dispute? We can assess this for<br />

you if required.<br />

3. What is the law that the<br />

referee will apply to your<br />

situation?<br />

4. Is your hearing in person or by<br />

remote attendance.<br />

5. You are entitled to a support<br />

person. However, this person<br />

cannot speak for you during<br />

the hearing and cannot be a<br />

witness.<br />

Whether you are bringing the<br />

claim, or defending it, we can<br />

guide you through the Disputes<br />

Tribunal Process. We agree<br />

with the age-old saying “chance<br />

favours the prepared” and in<br />

Disputes Tribunal proceedings<br />

this is often reflected in the<br />

referee’s decision.<br />

Whilst we cannot appear at the<br />

hearing, proper preparation will<br />

likely provide peace of mind and<br />

set you in good stead.<br />

A flower for Angela<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

ANGELA EARLY’S smile says it all.<br />

The 17-year-old, of Greendale, has been<br />

beaming since being able to see and hold<br />

a newly bred flower that has been named<br />

after her.<br />

The Angela Early peony was bred by<br />

Christchurch specialist peony propagator<br />

Paul Simmons. Simmons and wife Esther<br />

are Angela’s great uncle and aunt.<br />

Angela has Down’s syndrome; she is also<br />

autistic and non-verbal.<br />

While Angela can not put into words<br />

how she feels about the honour of having<br />

a flower named after her, she has been able<br />

to show her joy nonetheless.<br />

Her mum Christine said when Angela<br />

took one of the flowers into her school,<br />

Darfield High School, last week to show<br />

teachers, she had been “beaming and<br />

happy to have her photo taken”.<br />

ENORMOUS<br />

AND BEAUTIFUL:<br />

Angela Early,<br />

of Greendale,<br />

holds some of<br />

the specially<br />

bred peonies<br />

that have been<br />

named after her.<br />

The flowers themselves were slightly<br />

fragrant, as well as “enormous, beautiful,<br />

white and fluffy”.<br />

“They were so heavy she could hardly<br />

hold them, that’s when I just gave her one<br />

to hold at first,” Christine said.<br />

“Angie enjoys being in the garden at<br />

home where we have a large amount<br />

of peonies. She loves to give flowers to<br />

people,” she added.<br />

Simmons said he had been trying to<br />

breed a white peony which flowered early<br />

for the same span of Angela’s life so far –<br />

17 years.<br />

“White peonies only start flowering<br />

about mid season, compared to<br />

other peonies,” he said.<br />

And because Angela’s surname was<br />

Early, and he wanted to honour his<br />

grand niece, Angela Early had been the<br />

perfect name.<br />

Crusaders, Highlanders, pro women’s<br />

rugby, and now <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Trust<br />

Doug<br />

McSweeney<br />

WELL-KNOWN sports and<br />

marketing administrator Doug<br />

McSweeney has been appointed<br />

general manager of the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Sports Trust.<br />

McSweeney has worked in<br />

sports marketing and administration<br />

for more than 20 years,<br />

with recent roles at the Crusaders,<br />

Highlanders, and Matatū<br />

– the first South Island women’s<br />

professional rugby team playing<br />

in the Super Rugby Aupiki<br />

competition.<br />

“I’m really<br />

excited by the<br />

opportunity to<br />

work in a role<br />

that ultimately<br />

results in the<br />

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

being<br />

more connected<br />

through volunteering<br />

and<br />

participation in sport, staying<br />

active and healthy,” he said.<br />

“It will be a privilege to be able<br />

to help with such meaningful<br />

outcomes but also advocate for<br />

the provision of sports and recreation<br />

within the district.”<br />

McSweeney grew up in Greymouth<br />

and attended Lincoln<br />

University. He played rugby and<br />

ROLE: Whether its five or 95-year-olds, new <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Trust general manager Doug<br />

McSweeney is working to provide the opportunity for people to participate in sport<br />

cricket growing up, and now gets<br />

his sports fix through running<br />

and golf. He also enjoys supporting<br />

his two children in their<br />

junior sport involvement.<br />

“If we can help our kids stay<br />

active through participation<br />

and engagement in physical<br />

activity, not just team or traditional<br />

sport, it creates so many<br />

opportunities for them to create<br />

friendships, build confidence, be<br />

healthy and active for life, and<br />

also learn some fundamentals<br />

life skills.<br />

“I know the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports<br />

Trust is highly regarded<br />

nationally for the programmes<br />

and events it delivers. I see my<br />

role as helping the team build<br />

on this work to help reach<br />

everyone in our community and<br />

give them the opportunity to be<br />

active through participation or<br />

volunteering, whether they are<br />

five or 95-years-old, fit and able,<br />

or need a little extra help to get<br />

moving”.<br />

Trust chairman, Aaron Ford,<br />

said it was great to have Mc-<br />

Sweeney part of the team.<br />

“The skills and experience<br />

he brings are a great fit for<br />

the Trust, which will put the<br />

organisation in good stead to<br />

achieve its longer term objectives<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports<br />

Trust was established in<br />

2010 and is based at the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Centre<br />

in Rolleston. It delivers<br />

a range of initiatives<br />

within the district<br />

including community<br />

events and school-based<br />

active and educational<br />

programmes.<br />

The trust’s vision<br />

is to inspire active<br />

participation through<br />

opportunity and<br />

leadership in <strong>Selwyn</strong>. By<br />

doing so, the trust says<br />

will achieve its mission<br />

to enrich people’s lives<br />

and community wellbeing<br />

through sport and<br />

recreation.<br />

over the next three to five years.<br />

“Doug has already been<br />

proactive in connecting with<br />

some of our key stakeholder and<br />

sponsors, and we see this as a key<br />

priority. Following the success<br />

of our events and programmes<br />

this year, we are really looking<br />

forward to a massive 2023<br />

connecting with the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

community.”<br />

Huge turnout for fireworks event<br />

THE SELWYN Fireworks<br />

Spectacular committee was<br />

amazed at the turnout on<br />

Saturday night where an<br />

estimated 14,000 people<br />

attended.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Fireworks Spectacular<br />

Charitable Trust president Chris<br />

O’Brien said the committee and<br />

volunteers spent tireless hours<br />

across eight months planning the<br />

event.<br />

The charitable trust provides<br />

a platform for local community<br />

groups to set up stalls and sell<br />

products, food and drinks.<br />

Said O’Brien: “It is great to<br />

see our non-profit stallholders<br />

get some critical funding they<br />

need to survive in times like<br />

these.’’<br />

“Covid has taught us just how<br />

important the little things are in<br />

life and watching many people<br />

from Canterbury and further<br />

afield come and support the<br />

staggering event.<br />

“There have been many<br />

changes to Foster Park in the past<br />

24 months, and we have had to<br />

work hard on strengthening our<br />

relationships with the council<br />

and other community groups and<br />

contractors to ensure the event’s<br />

success for many more years to<br />

come,’’ O’Brien said.<br />

The police and security presence<br />

this year was significantly<br />

higher than in previous fireworks<br />

events to ensure there<br />

were little to no problems on the<br />

night.<br />

Stallholders also benefitted<br />

well from the event, and there<br />

was positive feedback about how<br />

successful the night was for them.<br />

“It’s important to ensure the<br />

stall holders do well year after<br />

year as that encourages them<br />

to return and allows the committee<br />

to protect the event from<br />

becoming a commercially hosted<br />

event,’’ O’Brien said.<br />

The committee would like to<br />

thank the supporting partners<br />

– Accessman, Pub Charity, the<br />

district council, Tru Group Ltd,<br />

Platt Electrical and all of the<br />

contractors that helped set up<br />

and help keep spectators safe.<br />

Said O’Brien: “We would also<br />

like to thank all our volunteers<br />

who worked tirelessly to make it<br />

all look so easy. Volunteers are<br />

hard to come by with everyone<br />

being so time-poor. It was great<br />

to have everyone help deliver a<br />

fun night.<br />

“And, of course, our<br />

amazing community for not<br />

only attending and allowing<br />

us to have an event but also<br />

supporting all the stallholders<br />

fundraising for their<br />

organisations. Without you, we<br />

cannot continue to host this<br />

event.’’<br />

With the silly season<br />

not far away, it’s time<br />

Lincoln.<br />

Aimee, the owner of Reinvent<br />

Boutique, has recently celebrated<br />

the boutique being opened at<br />

its current location for one year.<br />

Aimee advises, “It has been a<br />

fantastic move for me, going into<br />

the bigger shop, lots of windows<br />

and light and lots of parking.”<br />

The boutique has well-organised<br />

and orderly displays of clothing<br />

(sizes 8 to 22) in plenty of colours,<br />

patterns and styles. Aimee says,<br />

“the shop is full of lovely dresses,<br />

and we’re ready for summer”.<br />

Accessories, including handbags,<br />

jewellery and shoes, are also<br />

part of the one-stop shopping<br />

experience. Aimee recently<br />

dressed a customer from topto-toe,<br />

with her leaving the store<br />

with shoes, a dress and earrings<br />

without the need to go elsewhere<br />

to complete her outfit. There are<br />

currently many new shoes instore,<br />

with the popular brands Fly<br />

London and Oli offering summery<br />

sandals ready for any<br />

occasion.<br />

Reinvent has an<br />

eye-catching<br />

website to sell<br />

clothing and<br />

accessories<br />

online across<br />

New Zealand.<br />

The continually<br />

updated website is an<br />

excellent way to showcase recent<br />

new arrivals. However, going<br />

into the store allows customers<br />

to experience Aimee’s positive<br />

approach and passion for clothes.<br />

She makes customers feel at<br />

ease and confident about their<br />

choices. She takes the time to<br />

know her customer’s styles and<br />

is exceptional about finding<br />

clothes that suit them. Aimee<br />

explains, “If you know what you<br />

are after, make sure you mention<br />

it because I may have it out the<br />

back.” As a result, Aimee and the<br />

team at Reinvent Boutique have<br />

a first-rate reputation, and many<br />

customers return for clothing and<br />

outstanding service.<br />

Make sure you’re ready for any<br />

occasion by visiting Reinvent<br />

Boutique. Your pre-loved<br />

shopping experience will be<br />

positive and stress-free, and you’ll<br />

find clothing you love to wear<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Response Team achieve<br />

national accreditation<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s volunteer emergency responders are now officially among the best<br />

in Aotearoa.<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> Response Team (RT) recently became the third NZ-RT team in<br />

the country to achieve new national accreditation standards, showing it meets<br />

the requirements to respond to local emergencies and support emergency<br />

response teams around the country.<br />

New Council takes up the<br />

opportunity to serve<br />

There was a warm welcome at the inaugural meeting of <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s new Council as<br />

the councillors were sworn in to serve for the next three years.<br />

The new councillors, and their family and friends were welcomed at the ceremony<br />

at Te Ara Ātea with a mihi whakatau led by representatives of Te Taumutu<br />

Rūnanga for the Council’s inaugural meeting on Wednesday last week.<br />

Te Taumutu representative Rulon Nutira spoke of the history of settlement in the<br />

district and laid down a challenge to the Councillors as he congratulated them.<br />

“This is the writing of a new chapter for the people of Waikirikiri <strong>Selwyn</strong> and Ngati<br />

Ruahikihiki. Councillors; we deserve the best, we expect nothing less. We look<br />

forward to walking with you through the next chapter. You have heard the call of<br />

the community, congratulations on your new roles.”<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton called on the Council to be brave and encouraged all<br />

councillors to make decisions centred on love and partnership.<br />

‘I want our Council to continue to make great decisions for <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s future.<br />

The level of expectation in our community is high and there are numerous<br />

opportunities to explore. I believe our current success has been the result of strong<br />

partnerships with mana whenua, businesses, community groups and families and<br />

I would like to see this continue.<br />

The meeting saw three new councillors and seven returning councillors sworn in,<br />

and Councillor Malcolm Lyall unanimously elected as Deputy Mayor.<br />

It was also the inaugural meeting of the Malvern Community Board, where the five<br />

board members were sworn in. Ken May was elected chair and Bruce Russell as<br />

deputy chair.<br />

Creative Communities brings special Filipino<br />

performance to Rolleston<br />

Traditional Filipino music and Christmas carols will take centre stage at Te Ara Ātea<br />

on Saturday 26 <strong>November</strong>, when the Musika Filipinas Aotearoa Choir come<br />

to Rolleston.<br />

This is the first time the group will perform in <strong>Selwyn</strong>, thanks to the support of the<br />

Council’s Creative Communities Scheme funding.<br />

Creative Communities supports community-based arts activities, with the aim of<br />

increasing participation in, and access to, the arts.<br />

The scheme is delivered in partnership between Creative Communities NZ and<br />

councils. Applications for the latest round of funding are now open until<br />

Friday 25 <strong>November</strong>.<br />

Musical Director Kristian Rubi says the Christchurch-based choir has been rehearsing<br />

twice a week in preparation for the free concert.<br />

“We’re really excited about coming to Rolleston. We have a few members who live in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> including our president and one of our sopranos. It’s inspired us to give back<br />

to the community.<br />

“<strong>Selwyn</strong> is a fast-growing community and there are many Filipinos here. We love<br />

reaching out to communities and sharing our culture and music with people,” he says.<br />

The performance, ‘Ating Musika’ (Our Music) will include songs adapted from Filipino<br />

to English and Te Reo Māori. It will be split into two acts, with the first featuring<br />

Filipino songs, and the second act being a tribute to one of the group’s favourite<br />

traditions – Christmas.<br />

Kristian says for many Filipinos, Christmas preparations begin in September, with<br />

celebrations happening until Chinese New Year.<br />

“I really recommend artists and groups go into the <strong>Selwyn</strong> community because it<br />

is thriving, especially in arts, culture and performances,” Kristian says. “It’s great to<br />

provide entertainment and cultural experiences for the community.”<br />

The Ating Musika coral concert will run from 3pm on 26 <strong>November</strong> at Te Ara Ātea,<br />

with doors open from 12.30-12.55pm. Admission is free.<br />

To find out more about the Creative Communities Scheme or to apply visit<br />

selwyn.govt.nz/creativecommunities.<br />

The accreditation comes at the same time as national recognition of <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s<br />

Civil Defence volunteers by Disaster Risk and Resilience expert Professor<br />

Tom Wilson. At the recent <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Emergency Services hui, Professor<br />

Wilson said that with 290 Civil<br />

Defence volunteers, the district is<br />

recognised as a national leader in<br />

emergency response.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> RT Deputy Team Leader<br />

Belinda Mathers says the team have<br />

been steadily growing their skills<br />

since they first got together in 2017.<br />

They are now able to provide support<br />

during the full gambit of emergencies from storms and floods to earthquakes<br />

and mass casualties. “We have been called on a number of times to support<br />

emergency response, including during flooding events, storms, and after the<br />

mosque attacks.”<br />

NZ-RTs are qualified response teams throughout New Zealand who work<br />

alongside and assist emergency services such as Fire and Emergency New<br />

Zealand and other responding agencies during emergencies.<br />

“Training includes everything from traffic management to setting up a Civil<br />

Defence centre and rescuing people from heights,” Belinda says. “During the<br />

accreditation assessment, the team were tested on their ability to undertake<br />

urban search and rescue, make emergency roof repairs, protect communities<br />

with sandbags, and set up a pump to divert water away from homes.”<br />

Council Civil Defence Manager Al Lawn says the accreditation is recognition<br />

of the dedication and expertise of this skilled team of volunteers.<br />

“We have 30 highly dedicated people in the team, who meet every week to<br />

train weekly. They range in age from their early 20s to their 60s and have a<br />

diverse range of skills, from technical expertise to strong interpersonal skills –<br />

all of which are critical in an emergency.”<br />

“The common factors amongst them all are that they thrive in physically and<br />

mentally challenging environments and have a deep commitment to<br />

serving communities.”<br />

Further submissions open on new<br />

housing intensification rules<br />

A chance for affected parties to have their say on submissions on new housing<br />

intensification rules, in Rolleston, Lincoln and Prebbleton, is now open.<br />

The further submission consultation follows the notification of mandatory<br />

variations to the Proposed <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Plan and to eight private plan<br />

changes to the Operative <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Plan in August earlier this year,<br />

which allow for more housing and at greater heights in relevant<br />

residential areas.<br />

“This is an opportunity for those affected, certain interested parties and the<br />

Council to respond to an original submission,” says Council Group Manager<br />

Development and Growth Tim Harris.<br />

A total of 118 submissions were made on the variation to the Proposed District<br />

Plan and 26 submissions were made on the variation to the private<br />

plan changes.<br />

“Topics attracting most attention included rezoning land from rural to<br />

residential, and the new medium density residential zone, including the<br />

permitted density rules allowing for up to three houses, three storeys high<br />

without requiring a resource consent,” Mr Harris says.<br />

Further submissions can only be made by someone who has already made a<br />

submission on the variations, a person with an interest greater than the public<br />

in general (for example if they own property that someone submitted to have<br />

rezoned), someone representing a public interest group, or the local<br />

authority itself.<br />

To help with queries about the submission process, people can also contact a<br />

free Friend of a Submitter service, provided by the Ministry for<br />

the Environment.<br />

More details on the Friend of Submitter and viewing submissions, or making a<br />

further submission are available at selwyn.govt.nz/yoursay, and can be viewed<br />

online at all the Council libraries and service centres<br />

The further submission period is open until 5pm Friday 18 <strong>November</strong>.<br />

Four simple tips to stay safe on our roads<br />

Just four simple tips can make a big difference to keeping our roads safe for everyone.<br />

Work them into your personal life and make our community a nicer safer place to live.<br />

Plan Ahead, Stay Alert, Slow Down, Drop Back!<br />

Plan Ahead<br />

Know your route; the appropriate lane you need to be in, where you’re going to take a break and<br />

how you’re going to get home after a couple of drinks. Check the weather, check your vehicle. Take<br />

the time to plan, to ensure you arrive safely. Plan ahead to spend time with family, friends, or doing<br />

what you love instead.<br />

Stay Alert<br />

Be alert to what’s around you; the environment, road signage,<br />

other traffic, intersections, and your own intentions. Eliminate<br />

distractions. Expect the unexpected. Stay alert to your<br />

environment and surroundings, the impact your actions are<br />

having on others, and how your friends and family are coping.<br />

Slow Down<br />

A small reduction in speed has a significant increase in surviving a crash. Speeding can increase<br />

your risk of death or serious injury in a crash by over 40 per cent. Those few minutes aren’t worth<br />

your life. We are all guilty of trying to do too much and never having time to enjoy the good things,<br />

so why not try and slow down a little in life.<br />

Drop Back<br />

Make the effort to increase following distances, give yourself greater reaction time, allow yourself<br />

to see further down the road. Action will always beat reaction, don’t put pressure on the car in front,<br />

there may be unexpected consequences. Take a moment to step back and appreciate the truly<br />

important things around us.<br />

Four simple points of action put into practice will make our lives less stressful and reduce the<br />

trauma on the roads in <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

TIMELY: Former district councillors Jens Christensen and Annette Foster<br />

are putting together a modern history of Rolleston.<br />

Modern history of Rolleston soon in print<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

TWO FORMER district<br />

councillors who were integral<br />

to the development of Rolleston<br />

are compiling a modern history<br />

book of the town.<br />

Jens Christensen and Annette<br />

Foster have had their memories<br />

and those of 30 fellow developers<br />

and residents recorded for the<br />

book. Now they are wanting help<br />

with editing and compiling the<br />

information and photos, so they<br />

can head to the printers.<br />

The pair said Rolleston had<br />

a unique and exciting history,<br />

with it having become one of<br />

Canterbury’s fastest growing<br />

towns after expansion began<br />

in the 1990s. Today it has a<br />

population of about 28,000,<br />

compared to about 1000 in 1990.<br />

Both Foster and Christensen<br />

were among developers who<br />

owned Rolleston farmland. They<br />

carved this up, and it became<br />

areas for housing, shops, parks<br />

and schools, including – in<br />

Foster’s case – Foster Park and<br />

Rolleston College.<br />

They said the 1990s and early<br />

2000s was a challenging time,<br />

as developers had to put their<br />

case to the district council, apply<br />

for rezoning plan changes, gain<br />

subdivision consents, and install<br />

a town sewerage system.<br />

Foster and her late husband<br />

David also had to fight an air<br />

noise contour zone, which<br />

stymied development of<br />

their farm and neighbouring<br />

farmland.<br />

“It was challenging, the more<br />

exciting time was later on when<br />

everything was just happening,”<br />

Foster said.<br />

They have undertaken the<br />

book project through their long<br />

association with the Rolleston<br />

Residents Association, of which<br />

they are life members.<br />

“It was timely to put<br />

something together before it’s<br />

lost, because we have actually<br />

lost a few people who could’ve<br />

helped,” Foster said.<br />

That was since 2016, when<br />

the 150th jubilee of the town<br />

was held. The pair had expected<br />

the district council might pull<br />

together photos and information<br />

gathered for that event into a<br />

THEN AND NOW: Images<br />

being collated for the<br />

book show the growth of<br />

Rolleston between 2006<br />

(left) and 2020.<br />

book; however, this had not<br />

happened.<br />

Christensen and Foster said<br />

the interviews with themselves<br />

and others had been undertaken<br />

by a contracted author. Now they<br />

had hit a roadblock as they had<br />

all this information, but needed<br />

either professional or volunteer<br />

help to edit and compile it.<br />

• Anyone who may<br />

be able to help can get<br />

hold of Christensen at<br />

Leeston-Southbridge scrape<br />

home after tense final overs<br />

CELLAR-dwellers Ohoka and<br />

Oxford-Rangiora both came<br />

within whiskers of securing their<br />

first wins of the season, only to<br />

fall agonisingly short in the latest<br />

round of country cricket on<br />

Saturday.<br />

Sefton and Leeston-Southbridge<br />

remain at the top of<br />

the Canterbury Country<br />

Premier One Day competition<br />

after round five wins at the<br />

weekend.<br />

While the Canterbury Countrymen’s<br />

representative side was<br />

winning back the coveted Hawke<br />

Cup against Hawke’s Bay, the<br />

club game of the round was being<br />

played out at Mandeville.<br />

Home side strugglers<br />

Ohoka batted first on a flat main<br />

pitch against visiting Leeston-<br />

Southbridge, and got home off a<br />

flying start, with openers Ryan<br />

Kelly (26 runs off 31 balls) and<br />

Daniel Lyons (80 off 99) putting<br />

on 79 runs for the first wicket.<br />

Curtley Harper (45 off 60) and<br />

recalled veteran Paul Miller (48<br />

not out off 44 balls) kept the momentum<br />

going as Ohoka posted<br />

a commanding 252/6 in their<br />

allotted 45 overs.<br />

But any thoughts of an easy<br />

first win were soon dispatched<br />

by a rollicking Brayden Hill who<br />

fell just one short of what would<br />

Short scorecard:<br />

Ohoka 252/6 (D Lyons 80,<br />

have been a spectacular century.<br />

Hill was cruelly bowled by<br />

Hamish Williams for 99 but his<br />

innings helped set up a nailbiting<br />

finish.<br />

A Chris Beatson cameo took<br />

the game into the final over before<br />

the combined side knocked<br />

off the winning runs with three<br />

balls to spare in an epic grandstand<br />

finish.<br />

It was a similar heartbreak for<br />

Oxford-Rangiora who couldn’t<br />

quite defend 176/8 against<br />

Peninsula-Harbour at Southbrook<br />

Park, in spite of a fine first<br />

innings half century by Sam<br />

Fleming.<br />

At 83/7, Peninsula-Harbour’s<br />

chase looked wobbly, but a<br />

match-winning, unbeaten 57<br />

from Akhil Pant also took the<br />

game to the final over.<br />

When Akshay Gulati was run<br />

out by Calvin Scott off the first<br />

ball of the 45th over, bringing<br />

in last man Sam Singh, tensions<br />

peaked.<br />

But it was Singh who<br />

kept his cool and managed a<br />

boundary to guide Harbour-<br />

Peninsula to their second win of<br />

the year.<br />

In the final two games, Sefton<br />

and Weedons both secured<br />

comfortable wins – former Kings<br />

spinner Jeremy Benton taking a<br />

six wicket bag – with the top five<br />

teams separating themselves as<br />

the season finds its groove.<br />

GARDENING<br />

AS WE head into summer, the<br />

weather is heating up and there<br />

are more daylight hours to spend<br />

in the garden. Plant summerloving<br />

crops for a continuous<br />

supply of veges and keep planting<br />

vibrant flowers for a bright garden<br />

over the hotter months.<br />

Vegetables<br />

As the days get longer and soil<br />

temperatures rise, established<br />

plants and young seedlings grow<br />

faster, while seed sown now is<br />

almost certain to germinate.<br />

French and butter beans can be<br />

sown in the open. Place the seeds<br />

singly, about 15cm apart and 5cm<br />

deep.<br />

Runner beans for growing up<br />

trellises or on frames also can be<br />

sown now in a sunny spot.<br />

Smaller cucumber varieties<br />

(Lemon, True Lemon) can be<br />

sown in rich soil but in cooler<br />

areas, these and other cucurbits,<br />

including zucchini (courgettes),<br />

are better grown from plants<br />

bought from a garden centre.<br />

Asparagus can be harvested and<br />

spears can be taken over the next<br />

month. If this is the first season<br />

for your asparagus, resist taking<br />

any shoots so the root system can<br />

develop. This self-discipline will<br />

pay dividends in years to come<br />

with more, fatter stems to pick.<br />

When taking spears, snap them<br />

off as close to the base as possible,<br />

taking care not to damage<br />

new buds around them. Give an<br />

application of general fertiliser, at<br />

the rate of 100g per sq m, before<br />

harvesting starts, then liquid<br />

manure regularly for the rest of<br />

the growing season. Established<br />

asparagus beds can produce for<br />

15 to 20 years, making the initial<br />

outlay on plants (crowns) or seed<br />

well worthwhile.<br />

Sweet corn can still be sown.<br />

Get your summer supply in the ground<br />

WARMER WEATHER: Early <strong>November</strong>’s the time to get<br />

tomatoes and berries planted in time for summer harvest.<br />

PHOTOS: GETTY, ODT<br />

Choose a faster-maturing variety,<br />

such as Florida Supersweet, and<br />

sow in groups of six to eight<br />

plants, 15cm apart in each direction,<br />

to help fertilisation. The<br />

plants need shelter from cold<br />

winds and plenty of compost and<br />

lime. Corn also needs potash,<br />

which encourages growth and increases<br />

disease resistance. Apply<br />

45g a sq m before planting.<br />

Peas, lettuce, carrots, spring onions,<br />

radish and turnips can still<br />

be sown for succession crops.<br />

Plant summer-loving crops<br />

including tomatoes, chillies, courgettes,<br />

capsicums and sweetcorn<br />

as the weather warms.<br />

Regularly plant salad greens<br />

such as lettuce, mesclun, radish<br />

and spring onions for summer<br />

salads.<br />

Flowers<br />

This is a busy month in the<br />

flower garden.<br />

For better flowers, it is worth<br />

adding well-rotted compost and a<br />

light dressing of bone dust to the<br />

ground where they are to grow.<br />

Work the goodies into the top<br />

20cm of soil before planting.<br />

Love-in-a-mist (Nigella,)<br />

candytuft, larkspur, Calliopsis,<br />

sweet sultan, Clarkia and Shirley<br />

poppies are among annuals that<br />

resent being transplanted and<br />

should be sown where they are to<br />

flower.<br />

Tulips and narcissi should be<br />

left as long as possible before<br />

lifting, cleaning, then replanting<br />

or storing. Foliage must not be removed<br />

until it has turned yellow.<br />

Dahlias may still be planted and<br />

old clumps of tubers lifted and<br />

broken up for replanting. Stake<br />

when planting to avoid damaging<br />

the roots later.<br />

Greenfly is a common problem<br />

on roses. Under the right conditions,<br />

it will spread rapidly until<br />

every shoot has a thriving colony<br />

of aphids sucking the sap. They<br />

can be sprayed with soap solution,<br />

which will not harm bees, or<br />

a commercial product.<br />

Fruit<br />

Hardier tomatoes can be<br />

planted outdoors, but the plants<br />

will need shelter from winds.<br />

Tomatoes need rich, well-drained<br />

soil to which has been added a<br />

sprinkling of potash and if the<br />

ground is very acid with a pH of<br />

less than 5.5 a handful of lime<br />

to every sq m. Liquid manure<br />

applied once the first fruits set<br />

helps ensure a good crop.<br />

It’s a great time to plant<br />

more strawberries, raspberries,<br />

gooseberries, blueberries,<br />

boysenberries, and blackberries<br />

for continued harvests over the<br />

summer season.<br />

The spring growing season is in full swing, and you<br />

will be starting to see some results from your hard<br />

work. As the weather warms up, we need to keep<br />

on top of watering. Establishing a watering routine<br />

will help to keep a consistent growing environment<br />

for your plants and lawn and won’t put them under<br />

stress. Remove weeds as these compete for space,<br />

water, and nutrients, and add mulch to not only<br />

finish off the look, but to assist with the above.<br />

Safety in the Garden<br />

Keeping yourself safe in the garden is important, especially at this time<br />

of the year. Legionnaire’s Disease is one of the main risks in the garden,<br />

so protecting yourself is key. Below are some precautions you can take to<br />

reduce the risk of contracting Legionnaires:<br />

• Open bags with a sharp knife – away from the face - in open spaces, not<br />

in enclosed areas like sheds or greenhouses<br />

• Remember to use gloves and masks when handling the mix<br />

• Dampen any dry mix – taking care not to inhale dry, dusty mix<br />

• Store bags out of direct sunlight<br />

• Always wash your hands after gardening, and before eating or drinking<br />

If you develop any flu-like<br />

symptoms after working in the<br />

garden head to your doctor<br />

immediately. Make sure you<br />

let them know you have been<br />

gardening and need to get tested<br />

Ranger benefits from new engine<br />

I CAN’T HELP but feel a little<br />

disappointed when one of my<br />

favourite engines becomes no<br />

longer available.<br />

One in particular is the fivecylinder<br />

diesel that has been fitted<br />

to Ford’s Ranger and Everest for<br />

going on 12 years. It was a real<br />

champion in terms of performance<br />

and character.<br />

However, I can relax knowing<br />

that an engine of similar character<br />

is now an option on Ranger, it is<br />

a 3-litre turbocharged V6 diesel,<br />

and it is lusty, quiet, and has fuel<br />

economy on its side.<br />

Well, that’s just one option in<br />

new Ranger, of course you can also<br />

have the 2-litre twin-turbocharged<br />

four-cylinder engine that Ford has<br />

been introducing slowly over the<br />

last couple of years. I‘ve driven two<br />

variants of it in the time since and<br />

can also report that it is smooth,<br />

refined and easily capable of<br />

providing the Ranger buyer with<br />

the performance befitting a double<br />

cab utility.<br />

This evaluation focuses on the<br />

four-wheel-drive, Sport double cab<br />

with the new V6. It is a punchy unit<br />

with Ford claiming power outputs<br />

of 184kW and a hearty 600Nm of<br />

torque, the latter available from<br />

1750rpm to 2250pm, arriving just<br />

1000rpm lower than the area of<br />

peak power.<br />

It’s these figures that make the<br />

2993cc unit so flexible and willing<br />

to work low down, yet freeing up<br />

to breathe willingly at the top end.<br />

Add in the beauty of a 10-speed<br />

automatic transmission and you<br />

have a driveline that is car-like in<br />

its feel and presentation.<br />

In fact, the new Ranger has<br />

become so refined that it feels<br />

like a car to drive, sure it’s a lot<br />

bigger than the average sedan,<br />

and there’s a bit more bulk to<br />

consider if you are on the hunt<br />

for an inner-city park, but it is for<br />

this kind of sophistication that<br />

people buy double cab utes. There’s<br />

comfortable space for five adults<br />

and there’s a wealth of kit and<br />

technology within the vehicle to<br />

keep the kids and adults happy and,<br />

of course, there is a high degree<br />

of safety with most modern aids<br />

incorporated into the package.<br />

In Sport form it comes complete<br />

with full leather trim, satellite<br />

navigation, adaptable cruise<br />

control and electric driver’s seat<br />

adjustment, just to mention a few<br />

of the major items, but for your<br />

$75,490 outlay you do get all the kit<br />

worthy of the price. What’s more<br />

you are getting a workhorse, the<br />

rear deck area is just a bonus really,<br />

the Ranger is a versatile carryall<br />

FORD RANGER SPORT: Choice of V6 or four-cylinder diesel power.<br />

that will also haul up to 3500kg on<br />

the tow bar.<br />

It was a case of really good<br />

timing that the new Ranger was<br />

placed my care, I had just dropped<br />

a pesky shrub that was taking up<br />

more space in the driveway than<br />

was ever intended. I used the<br />

Ranger’s deck space to off-load it<br />

to the green waste depot. It’s these<br />

types of tasks that make today’s<br />

pick-up so handy, it is a family car<br />

but with a multitude of uses.<br />

Underneath, the Ranger sits on a<br />

traditional ladder chassis and live<br />

axle, leaf spring rear suspension,<br />

the latter now fitted with disc<br />

brakes. That’s the traditional<br />

WORKHORSE: The Ford Ranger has substantial load space as well as offering seating for<br />

five.<br />

• Price – Ford Ranger Sport<br />

double cab, $75,490<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

5359mm; width, 1850mm;<br />

height, 1815mm<br />

• Configuration – V6, fourwheel-drive,<br />

2993cc,<br />

184kW, 600Nm, 10-speed<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 8.8sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 8.4/100km<br />

load bearing design, yet it works<br />

well, the suspension isn’t firmed<br />

dramatically, instead the ride<br />

is comfortable and controlled<br />

with just a small jiggle or two<br />

transmitted in-cabin over the worst<br />

of our uneven road surfaces.<br />

When the need comes to travel<br />

off-road the Ranger gets an<br />

electronically controlled transfer<br />

system, in typical ute fashion there’s<br />

high and low ratio gearing, easily<br />

manipulated by a centre console<br />

dial. I didn’t travel off the seal,<br />

except for a section of very rough<br />

ground thanks to ongoing street<br />

repairs close to where I live. At<br />

30km/h the Ranger’s suspension<br />

absorption easily contains the<br />

bumps, and control within the<br />

vehicle is confidence-boosting.<br />

In terms of on-road handling, the<br />

Ranger steers with well-weighted<br />

steering, and directional accuracy<br />

not always found in the traditional<br />

double-cab ute.<br />

In terms of fuel usage, Ford<br />

claims an 8.4-litre per 100km<br />

combined cycle average. The trip<br />

computer was constantly listing<br />

around 10.3l/100km during my<br />

time with the evaluation vehicle,<br />

which would make Ford’s claim<br />

achievable given that at 100km/h<br />

in top gear the engine is turning<br />

over at just 1600prm, returning<br />

an instantaneous figure of around<br />

7.5l/100km.<br />

There’s no question the Ranger is<br />

pricey, but it is on a par with many<br />

of the other premium models in<br />

the pick-up sector. However, you<br />

are buying quality, and with that<br />

fabulous V6 engine (or bi-turbo) it<br />

will keep you entertained for years.<br />

Ford offers a five-year 150,000km<br />

warranty which tells you the<br />

company has much faith in its<br />

product.<br />

Bear in mind, though, you<br />

will be bitten at purchase, the<br />

Government will want around<br />

$4k off you as part of its clean car<br />

programme or, as it has become<br />

commonly known, a ute tax. Still,<br />

such is the all-round brilliance of<br />

the Ranger, it is money well spent.<br />

Ford has done a clever job with<br />

Ranger, not only has it been kept<br />

fresh over the years, the driveline<br />

combinations provide the buyer<br />

with plenty of choice. It’s the<br />

quality within the vehicle that<br />

will help maintain Ford’s position<br />

with Ranger, it commands the ute<br />

market here and I can’t see it being<br />

toppled from that spot any time<br />

soon.<br />

Spring sanctuary<br />

Peaceful serenity abounds at this near-new residence which<br />

is bounded by a stream and settled within a calming Leeston<br />

cul-de-sac.<br />

Earning sanctuary status with its bridged entry, the spacious<br />

yet easy-care section spans 943sqm and plays host to a threebedroom<br />

home and a highly practical sleep out, which are united<br />

by a timber boardwalk.<br />

Designed and built by the vendors, this home sits superbly within<br />

its surroundings yet is brimming with modern convenience to<br />

offer the very best of both worlds.<br />

The compact yet perfectly formed 88sqm floor plan is lined with<br />

ceiling, wall and underfloor insulation and encompasses three<br />

bedrooms and a strikingly contemporary bathroom.<br />

A modern kitchen armed with a breakfast bar holds pride of place<br />

in the open-plan living and dining area, which is equipped with a<br />

heat pump and stretches outdoors to the large deck for effortless<br />

entertaining.<br />

The modern sleep out is loaded with practicalities, including a<br />

small bedroom, a study and laundry, making it a flexible space for<br />

everyday use.<br />

Located mere moments from the heart of Leeston, this property<br />

is perfect for growing families wanting to enjoy a peaceful<br />

pace of life, with zoning for Leeston Primary and Ellesmere<br />

College offering education options. Leeston is also within<br />

easy commuting distance to Rolleston, Lincoln, Hornby and<br />

Christchurch and has a great community feel.<br />

Life now leads the vendors in a different direction, meaning<br />

motivation is high, contact us for more information.<br />

comprises two living areas, a separate dining area and a large sunroom which is the ultimate spot in which to relax or<br />

entertain. The fully appointed kitchen enjoys views of both the harbour and the surrounding native bush. The main<br />

Road. This highly attractive home is set on established landscaped grounds and is surrounded by<br />

a productive, income producing walnut farm. With plans to downsize & retire firmly in their sights,<br />

fruits of their labour.<br />

The irrigated 10.48ha property comprises approximately 1.4ha of clear land surrounding the<br />

home, with the remainder planted with close to 900 walnut trees, producing approximately<br />

15 tonnes annually.<br />

The current owners have fastidiously maintained the property and infrastructure such as water<br />

consents are in place to ensure its ongoing success as an income producing property if desired.<br />

Make no mistake, this is to be sold so that the owners can move on to their next chapter. With the<br />

local West Melton village on your doorstep and Christchurch city a short drive away, this attractive<br />

lifestyle property should be a ‘must view’.<br />
