Sentimental colours<br />

cap big fundraiser<br />

• By Barry Clarke<br />

FRANCO MAREK’S return<br />

to winning form could not<br />

have come at a more poignant<br />

time.<br />

The Greg Manson-trained<br />

pacer with a big future took<br />

out the $30,000 Robin and<br />

Geraldine Wilson Rangiora<br />

Classic on Saturday – just<br />

weeks after a grand finale cancer<br />

fundraising event linked to<br />

the colours he races in.<br />

When Lincoln-based<br />

Manson’s horses step out onto<br />

the race track they carry with<br />

them a very special memory<br />

to his mate Blair Vining who<br />

is remembered for his fight for<br />

better cancer care.<br />

Manson’s colours have the<br />

initials BV emblazoned on<br />

black, red and white.<br />

BV stands for Blair Vining,<br />

and the red, black and white<br />

represent the colours of Vining’s<br />

rugby club Midland in<br />

Winton.<br />

Vining became a national<br />

identity as he battled terminal<br />

bowel cancer.<br />

Broughton<br />

wary of<br />

Mauger’s<br />

stadium<br />

proposal<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

CHRISTCHURCH Mayor<br />

Phil Mauger’s bid for funding<br />

assistance for the $683 million Te<br />

Kaha stadium may not be as easy<br />

to secure as he wants it to be.<br />

Mauger has<br />

written a letter<br />

to Mayor Sam<br />

Broughton,<br />

Waimakariri<br />

Mayor Dan Gordon<br />

and Environment<br />

Canterbury<br />

chair Peter Scott Phil Mauger<br />

for help with<br />

operational funding, but not construction<br />

costs.<br />

“The city council accepts that<br />

we decided to build the stadium<br />

and will fund its construction,”<br />

the letter says.<br />

But Broughton, who has previously<br />

called for the discussion to<br />

be Canterbury-wide, reiterated<br />

that in a responding letter to<br />

Mauger.<br />

“We believe this conversation<br />

about the operations of a regional<br />

facility needs to be with the whole<br />

region in the first instance,<br />

rather than just with <strong>Selwyn</strong> and<br />

Waimakariri.”<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

A SCHOOL has again pleaded<br />

for better infrastructure and<br />

lower speeds to protect its pupils.<br />

West Rolleston Primary<br />

School is on the corner of Dunns<br />

Crossing Rd and Burnham<br />

School Rd and currently has a<br />

50km/h speed limit around it,<br />

and no pedestrian crossing.<br />

The school does operate a Kea<br />

crossing at the start and end of<br />

the school day.<br />

In December, the Government<br />

sent a letter to all councils<br />

advising them to pause work<br />

on speed limits until the<br />

Government has developed its<br />

new speed limit setting rules<br />

with NZ Transport Agency<br />

Waka Kotahi.<br />

Twenty-six schools in <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

would have had either variable<br />

speed limits or permanent<br />

30km/h limits added in the<br />

council’s speed management<br />

plan, with some of the changes<br />

made before schools reopened in<br />

the new year.<br />

Last week, school board<br />

chair Rob Hunt pleaded with<br />

councillors for help with<br />

infrastructure and speed.<br />

“We can’t stress enough how<br />

concerned we remain around<br />

our tamariki our community<br />

and the impact of safety that is<br />

evident everyday.”<br />

Hunt said about 600 of the<br />

800 pupils at the school use the<br />

crossing.<br />

“When you have that many<br />

people crossing a road every day<br />

you actually of the risk of injury<br />

or risk to life.<br />

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

Plea for safety measures<br />

BUSY: West Rolleston Primary School pupils waiting to<br />

make their way across Dunns Crossing Rd.<br />

“That road is busier and busier<br />

by the day and obviously the<br />

expansion of subdivisions as<br />

they continue to grow and the<br />

further subdivision that is just<br />

commencing at the bottom of<br />

Dunns Crossing Rd is certainly<br />

going to increase the traffic of<br />

Dunns Crossing Rd.”<br />

Councillors sided with<br />

Hunt’s frustration but said<br />

there is little movement<br />

possible on speed limit changes<br />

until the Government confirms<br />

its policy.<br />

“I can’t believe you’re coming<br />

to have to talk to us again,”<br />

Rolleston Ward councillor<br />

Nicole Reid said.<br />

Transport Minister Simeon<br />

Brown said he is currently<br />

receiving further advice on<br />

drafting the new rules and will<br />

have more to say on that shortly.<br />

Brown did not provide a<br />

specific timeframe for the<br />

changes to be made.<br />

“The new rule will also<br />

implement variable speed limits<br />

on roads approaching schools<br />

during pick up and drop off<br />

times, rather than permanent<br />

reductions, to keep young New<br />

Zealanders safe when they are<br />

arriving at or leaving school,”<br />

Brown said.<br />

Brown did not say whether the<br />

Government would help pay for<br />

the increased costs of installing<br />

digital variable speed signs.<br />

Since West Rolleston Primary<br />

School opened eight years ago,<br />

Hunt has done three public<br />

forums to the council.<br />

The councillors will discuss<br />

the matter further at today’s<br />

transport and infrastructure<br />

meeting.<br />

• From page 1<br />

Mauger said <strong>Selwyn</strong> and<br />

Waimakariri were chosen<br />

because they are direct<br />

neighbours to Christchurch.<br />

“Their level of interest will be<br />

crucial in any discussion, including<br />

any potential discussion at a<br />

regional level,” Mauger said.<br />

“This is only a very early first<br />

step on formal discussions and<br />

does not preclude any other<br />

discussions.”<br />

Mauger is yet to respond to<br />

Broughton’s letter.<br />

No specific numbers are given<br />

in the letter, but 2019 estimates<br />

show without any contribution<br />

from surrounding councils,<br />

Christchurch ratepayers would<br />

be paying $144 on their rates<br />

each year.<br />

Mauger is proposing a joint<br />

funding model similar to the<br />

one for the Canterbury Museum,<br />

which costs <strong>Selwyn</strong> ratepayers<br />

$37 on their rates bill annually.<br />

Currently, <strong>Selwyn</strong> ratepayers<br />

are looking at a 16 per cent rates<br />

rise this year, and doubledigit<br />

rates rises for the next<br />

three years.<br />

When <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

asked readers in January<br />

for their opinions on<br />

contributing towards the<br />

stadium there were mixed<br />

views, with some supporting<br />

it and others against it.<br />

Rolleston Residents Association<br />

chair Mark Alexander said<br />

his personal view, which does<br />

not reflect the association’s, was<br />

the city has not been a good<br />

neighbour.<br />

“If Christchurch<br />

wants to talk about<br />

facility funding on a<br />

regional basis, that’s fine<br />

but we (<strong>Selwyn</strong>) also<br />

operate facilities that<br />

Christchurch residents<br />

use.”<br />

Alexander said<br />

“That’s not being a good neighbour,<br />

that’s not being a friend.”<br />

Alexander said the residents’<br />

association had not discussed the<br />

issue.<br />

councillor Sam MacDonald<br />

suggested a levy could be placed<br />

on users of the stadium from<br />

outside of the city.<br />

Broughton said he was open<br />

to receiving the conversational<br />

proposal, but has not committed<br />

to funding it.<br />

“We do not have any funds<br />

currently set aside and have no<br />

plans in our future budgets to<br />

start contributing.”<br />

He said any funding assistance<br />

would be consulted on with<br />

residents.<br />

“Any future decision<br />

to contribute or not also<br />

needs to be put to the<br />

community through<br />

proper consultation to<br />

understand their desire<br />

and ability to pay. This has<br />

been my commitment to<br />

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

which I have reinforced<br />

every time I have been asked<br />

about the topic,” Broughton said.<br />

Mauger said Te Kaha is expected<br />

to open in mid-2026, and<br />

operational costs are forecast<br />

to start in the 2026-27 financial<br />

year.<br />

A Waimakariri District Council<br />

spokesperson confirmed the<br />

letter had been received, and the<br />

council would meet in the coming<br />

weeks to consider it.<br />

“Currently, there is no funding<br />

put aside or anticipated in our<br />

Long Term Plan for this. Any<br />

potential contribution from<br />

Waimakariri District would<br />

need to be subject to full community<br />

consultation before any<br />

decision was made,” they said.<br />

Scott had received Mauger’s<br />

letter and said staff were<br />

currently considering it.<br />

“We are waiting for<br />

staff advice to come<br />

through,” Scott said.<br />

“We’re not quite sure<br />

they need us to be the<br />

mechanism to collect the<br />

rate. How far out does<br />

that push? Is it to Kaikoura,<br />

Waimate, Waitaki?<br />

We don’t know.”<br />

Scott agreed with Broughton<br />

about having a regional discussion.<br />

“I think he’s probably right,<br />

that’s a reasonable view on that.<br />

But what I would say also is where<br />

it’s happened in other areas it has<br />

been capital regionally rather than<br />

operating expenditure.”<br />

At this stage, all Mauger said<br />

all he is asking for is whether the<br />

councils will receive a funding<br />

proposal.<br />

“This is not asking you to<br />

make a binding decision, only<br />

whether you would be willing to<br />

look at options further.”<br />

New street lights branded ‘style crime’<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

NEW STREET lights in<br />

Prebbelton have been labelled<br />

hideous and cheap.<br />

Antique-style street lights have<br />

recently been replaced with LED<br />

equivalents, which residents say<br />

look out of place.<br />

Resident Roger Sell said the<br />

lights should have been replaced<br />

with what was there.<br />

“I would have thought you<br />

would have found a like-for-like<br />

LED version to replace them,” he<br />

said.<br />

“It is a feature of your street<br />

when you move into it.”<br />

Deputy mayor<br />

Malcolm Lyall,<br />

who lives in<br />

Prebbleton,<br />

said the new<br />

lights were a<br />

‘style crime’, but<br />

they were much<br />

cheaper and<br />

more practical to<br />

install.<br />

“I agree with them (the<br />

Malcolm<br />

Lyall<br />

residents) they are a style crime.<br />

They look awful. They look absurd<br />

on the decorative poles that<br />

were put there.<br />

“Like everything else at this<br />

time, we are staring a doubledigit<br />

rate increase in the face and<br />

anything we can do to keep the<br />

rates down which is what people<br />

REPLACEMENT: New LED streetlights, left, have been criticised by deputy mayor Malcolm<br />

Lyall who says they are an unsuitable replacement for the old antique-style lights.<br />

tell us they want us to do. It’s a<br />

rock and a hard place situation.<br />

Lyall said the cost of upgrading<br />

the current antique style to LED<br />

was investigated, but decided it<br />

would be too expensive.<br />

“To put in the decorative lights<br />

it was three or four times more<br />

expensive than the standard<br />

lights,” Lyall said.<br />

The original lights were<br />

installed by the developer of the<br />

subdivision, with the responsibility<br />

now in the council’s hands<br />

to replace the ageing equipment.<br />

Council head of asset management,<br />

infrastructure and<br />

property Murray England said it<br />

has been upgrading 9000 street<br />

lights across the district.<br />

“Since 2017, the council has<br />

been upgrading these streetlights<br />

to LEDs as part of a nationwide<br />

effort co-funded by NZ Transport<br />

Agency Waka Kotahi,”<br />

Washington said.<br />

“Changing to LEDs reduces<br />

the cost to our ratepayers and<br />

helps improve our carbon footprint.<br />

“LEDs use less power, are<br />

cheaper to maintain, give less<br />

light pollution and have the<br />

ability for us to add remote connection<br />

so we can turn them up,<br />

down or off more easily.”<br />

The council is in the final stages<br />

of the project, changing the<br />

last of its 5000 non-LED lights<br />

to new standard LED lights over<br />

this year.<br />

The budget for the district<br />

for the project is $4,885,000 of<br />

which Waka Kotahi has provided<br />

$3,357,146 in co-funding.<br />

Insolvency said although<br />

Ignite Solutions Ltd was the sole<br />

appointer for the receiverships, it<br />

was aware of a number of other<br />

claims.<br />

“It’s not appropriate for us to<br />

comment on totals or numbers<br />

owners Marc Findlay and Deborah Jane Robinson-Findlay were placed into receivership.<br />

Above – the couple in 2017.<br />

Innovation & Employment’s<br />

Insolvency and Trustee Service<br />

confirmed Findlay was previously<br />

adjudicated bankrupt<br />

on December 14, 2017, and<br />

discharged on January 30, 20<strong>21</strong>.<br />

This followed the liquidation of<br />

his project management firm,<br />

Project 1 Design, in July that<br />

year.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> plumber Darren Maher<br />

was caught up in the collapse<br />

of Project 1 Design, and says he<br />

is still owed $65,000 for unpaid<br />

work carried out at an apartment<br />

complex on Manchester St in<br />

March 2017.<br />

He is investigating whether he<br />

can make a claim on proceeds<br />

from the house sale.<br />

“I’m speaking to my legal<br />

team. It’s still a possibility,” he<br />

said.<br />

Maher was among unsecured<br />

creditors owed $611,333.20, according<br />

to a liquidators’ report<br />

dated <strong>February</strong> 2018.<br />

“I was one of the ones who<br />

bankrupted him. I’ve been to the<br />

police, it’s just complete and utter<br />

burglary. He done me out of<br />

$65,000 plus GST in a week.”<br />

He said the work at six apartments<br />

on Manchester St was<br />

completed on April 3, 2017, and<br />

three days later Findlay had told<br />

him via a text message a payment<br />

had been made, but it did<br />

not appear in Gillon & Maher<br />

Plumbing Ltd’s bank account.<br />

On April 17, 2017, Maher told<br />

police he received an email from<br />

Findlay saying that he (Findlay)<br />

had not been paid “and for that<br />

he was forced to take action”.<br />

Cream cheese<br />

demand rises<br />

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

Short supply of tickets left<br />

• By Sally Murphy<br />

GROWING DEMAND for cream<br />

cheese in China has seen Fonterra<br />

ramp up production at its Darfield<br />

site.<br />

The cream cheese factory is<br />

forecast to export around 20,000<br />

tonnes of cream cheese to China<br />

this season, and 1500MT to South<br />

East Asia.<br />

Plant manager Matt Smith said<br />

exports were growing year-onyear<br />

and sales had really picked<br />

ahead of Chinese New Year.<br />

“Due to the growing demand<br />

we’ve been able to increase<br />

production; the team recently<br />

made significant efficiency,<br />

quality, and yield improvements<br />

- to increase annual throughput<br />

by an additional <strong>21</strong>00MT per year<br />

- all executed with zero capital<br />

spend.”<br />

Smith said cream cheese was<br />

common in traditional Chinese<br />

pastries and was used in tea<br />

macchiatos, made using a base of<br />

Chinese tea, topped with a cap of<br />

cream and cream cheese that is<br />

whipped together until it forms a<br />

light and fluffy texture.<br />

When drinking a tea macchiato,<br />

the goal is to sip the drink at a<br />

45-degree angle to get the ideal<br />

mix of tea and creamy topping in<br />

each mouthful.<br />

Other popular items made with<br />

cream cheese included cheese<br />

lollipops and cheesecakes, Smith<br />

said.<br />

Said promoter David Parlane:<br />

“The drawcard of <strong>Selwyn</strong> Sounds<br />

Sunday, March 2 with Rikki<br />

Morris and finishes at about<br />

8.30pm with the Human League.<br />

“<strong>Selwyn</strong> Sounds is all about<br />

you grabbing your mate grabbing<br />

your girlfriend, taking your<br />

Garden Party may<br />

return to Lincoln<br />

student calendars<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

Demetrio<br />

Cooper<br />

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY’S end-of-year<br />

party could be back after it was called off<br />

last year.<br />

In previous years, the Garden Party has<br />

marked the end of lectures for students<br />

and is a day of music and partying at the<br />

university’s sports fields.<br />

Lincoln University Students Association<br />

(LUSA) met with police, St John and the<br />

district licencing inspector about hosting<br />

the event in its full capacity again this<br />

year, which requires LUSA to gain a special<br />

liquor licence.<br />

New LUSA president Demetrio<br />

Cooper was reluctant to answer<br />

questions from <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> and<br />

said little about the meeting or<br />

plans for the event.<br />

“We are working with the external<br />

authorities like <strong>Selwyn</strong> (alcohol)<br />

licensing and the university at<br />

the moment and once I have more<br />

information we can let you know,”<br />

Cooper said.<br />

“It would be good to see an<br />

event, but if we have any more information<br />

I’ll share it later, but I’d like to see something<br />

this year.”<br />

Council head of regulatory Sue Atherton<br />

said no event details were confirmed and<br />

there has been no application for a licence<br />

made by LUSA.<br />

“There was a meeting with the LUSA<br />

which was a presentation from them to the<br />

university and tri agencies (police, St John<br />

and the district licencing inspector) advising<br />

that they are looking at options for the<br />

Garden Party <strong>2024</strong>,” Atherton said.<br />

“All alcohol licence applications submitted<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong> are reported on by the tri<br />

agencies. The district licencing committee<br />

then needs to consider the application.”<br />

Last year the event never got off the<br />

ground. In June former LUSA president<br />

Amy Wells said it had “been forced” to<br />

make changes to the event which included<br />

a Lincoln student-only rule. The Garden<br />

Party was due to be replaced with a<br />

scaled-back lawn party, but that was later<br />

cancelled due to low ticket sales.<br />

At the time Wells nor the university did<br />

not comment on the reason for the shift in<br />

the events rules.<br />

However, <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> understands<br />

LUSA’s hand may have been<br />

forced by university management<br />

after issues with student behaviour<br />

pre and post-event in 2022.<br />

The university has been firm in<br />

denying any involvement with the<br />

event, despite LUSA meeting minutes<br />

from last year showing a desire<br />

from vice-chancellor Professor<br />

Grant Edwards to reduce risk to<br />

the students and wider community<br />

from the event.<br />

“There has been a desire from the university’s<br />

vice chancellor to aim to reduce<br />

the risk to students and the wider community<br />

at Garden Party,” the minutes said.<br />

Cooper would not be drawn to comment<br />

on why Garden Party was restructured<br />

last year.<br />

“There was lots of whispers everywhere,<br />

but I don’t listen to whispers.”<br />

The university again declined to answer<br />

questions from <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> relating to its<br />

involvement in the planning and approval<br />

of the Garden Party.<br />

insect and if they are a viable source of<br />

sustainable food.”<br />

The plants, including manuka and<br />

kawakawa, showed signs of having<br />

beneficial properties for the native<br />

caterpillars she has studied.<br />

O’Connor grew up working on a dairy<br />

farm near Cambridge, Waikato. She<br />

completed a master’s on milk protein<br />

digestion. When choosing her PhD<br />

focus, she changed direction to look at<br />

indigenous foods and sustainability with<br />

AgResearch.<br />

She said insects like caterpillars are<br />

traditional indigenous foods in some<br />

cultures but had not been eaten for many<br />

years.<br />

SCIENCE: Chrystal O’Connor is<br />

heading to Japan for the 15th<br />

HOPE meeting which starts on<br />

Monday.<br />

O’Connor has carried out surveys which<br />

showed many Māori would be willing to<br />

try the caterpillars. In parts of the world,<br />

such as Asia and Africa, eating insects is a<br />

normal practice.<br />

But O’Connor believes more work<br />

needs to be done if they are to become a<br />

widely accepted food source, despite their<br />

high protein levels and the extra benefits<br />

imbued on them by medicinal plants.<br />

O’Connor is also looking into the<br />

medicinal qualities of New Zealand’s<br />

endemic native plants.<br />

In semester 1 next year, she will be<br />

sharing her knowledge with Lincoln<br />

students during a Mahika Kai course,<br />

which will cover food gathering and the<br />

ecosystems and habitats these species are<br />

found in.<br />

O’Connor also plans to stop off in the<br />

United States on her way home from<br />

Japan to attend an indigenous farming<br />

conference.

LETTERS<br />

I COULDN’T agree more with<br />

Graham Bethell’s letter. An<br />

independent audit is desperately<br />

required. I wonder how many<br />

people in <strong>Selwyn</strong> can expect<br />

their own income to increase<br />

by 50 per cent over the next<br />

three years. That’s the increase<br />

that this council seems to think<br />

would be reasonable to impose<br />

on us.<br />

Council rates have always<br />

increased and often well above<br />

inflation figures. We have a great<br />

many new homes in the district,<br />

all contributing funds.<br />

You might imagine that with<br />

all that extra income we could<br />

have a rates reduction! Why have<br />

such huge increases become<br />

necessary?<br />

Has council been fiscally<br />

irresponsible? I think<br />

the increases are totally<br />

unreasonable and we should, at<br />

the very least, have very clear<br />

explanations as to why the<br />

increases are ‘needed’.<br />

Stadium costs<br />

Cr Miller (Lincoln) supports<br />

(Feb 7 issue) ratepayers funding<br />

a 5000 seat stadium complex<br />

for the Ellesmere Rugby Sub Union<br />

at Rolleston. The city council<br />

Christchurch.<br />

want us to help fund their rugby<br />

stadium (with unnecessary roof).<br />

Meanwhile, Lincoln sports<br />

fields are beyond capacity,<br />

the netball facilities are<br />

embarrassing, facilities and<br />

infrastructure are bulging while<br />

SDC doubles our population.<br />

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

Where is <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s rates revenue going?<br />

TOO MUCH: <strong>Selwyn</strong> ratepayers have been asked to<br />

contribute to the construction of Te Kaha stadium in<br />

Our main road might get the<br />

upgrade promised for over a<br />

decade. Stop using Lincoln residents<br />

as a rates farm for the pet<br />

projects of the rest of <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

- Tracey MacLeod<br />

I very strongly oppose <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

ratepayers being forced to contribute<br />

to the stadium cost, the<br />

inevitable cost overruns, its ongoing<br />

maintenance and shortfall<br />

when costs exceed revenue which<br />

is also inevitable<br />

Te Kaha is a white elephant the<br />

Christchurch Council supported<br />

by our previous government<br />

decided to build which will be a<br />

black hole that <strong>Selwyn</strong> ratepayers<br />

should strongly oppose funding<br />

as it will be a long term drain<br />

and diversion from urgent<br />

projects in the county with little<br />

or no benefit to most, if any,<br />

ratepayers .<br />

If this proposed levy proceeds,<br />

it will bind <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

ratepayers forever and should be<br />

decided on a referendum of all<br />

ratepayers based on the quantum<br />

We want to hear your views<br />

on the issues affecting life<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Send emails to:<br />

barry@starmedia.kiwi<br />

of rates paid by the voting ratepayer.<br />

The referendum should ask<br />

three questions:<br />

• Do you support contributing<br />

to the capital cost and overruns<br />

of the stadium?<br />

• Do you support contributing<br />

to the maintenance of the<br />

stadium?<br />

• Do you support contributing<br />

to the ongoing shortfall of<br />

Revenue less costs?<br />

If this surprise levy proceeds<br />

you might as well in, bygone<br />

terms, post them blank signed<br />

cheques with a note “help yourself.”<br />

The inevitable operating deficits<br />

should be added to the ticket<br />

prices. That’s called user pays<br />

Life in miniature: Lincoln buildings<br />

added to hobbyist’s model railway<br />

• By Daniel Alvey and Geoff<br />

Sloan<br />

WHEN PAUL Penning was<br />

gifted a train set as a boy, he was<br />

instantly hooked. Now many<br />

years down the track, he’s been<br />

able to reconnect with the hobby.<br />

The 74-year-old has spent<br />

the past five years making<br />

miniatures of buildings for<br />

his model railway, including<br />

several scale replicas of <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

structures.<br />

“My grandfather gave me a<br />

model railway for my birthday<br />

when I was very young and I<br />

had a model railway to about the<br />

time I went to high school, then<br />

of course life got in the way,’ Paul<br />

said.<br />

“My grandchildren love it<br />

now.”<br />

His collection of scale replicas<br />

includes The Famous Grouse<br />

Hotel, Lincoln Library, the<br />

former Lincoln Railway Station<br />

and Prebbleton goods shed, Lincoln<br />

Union Church and, most<br />

recently, Coffee Culture.<br />

Paul is a retired aircraft<br />

engineer, who worked for<br />

National Airways Corporation,<br />

Mt Cook Airlines and Air New<br />

Zealand.<br />

He said of building the<br />

miniatures: “I just enjoy making<br />

them. I enjoyed the challenge of<br />

designing them on the computer.<br />

Since retirement, I’ve taught<br />

myself two computer programs,<br />

one to work a 3D printer and one<br />

to work a Cricut, which is a poor<br />

man’s laser cutter. And I make<br />

the models from those.”<br />

The 3D printer was a birthday<br />

present from his children, and<br />

his wife bought the Cricut.<br />

“As part of my career I’d seen<br />

3D printing being done and I<br />

thought actually I could use this<br />

for model making.<br />

“So my three children built<br />

houses and they asked me to<br />

make models of their houses,<br />

so they could see. So I started<br />

doing that and then when we<br />

were building this house here in<br />

Lincoln, I built a model of that,<br />

and it’s just gone on from there.”<br />

He built the model of<br />

Coffee Culture because his<br />

granddaughter worked there, but<br />

generally, it’s just buildings he<br />

finds interesting.<br />

“The combined Presbyterian<br />

church I thought was a great<br />

looking building, the Grouse I<br />

thought again it’s good looking,<br />

interesting architecture, and the<br />

same for the library.”<br />

Now he has a running N-gauge<br />

layout (1:160 scale), which<br />

includes buildings such as the<br />

Grouse.<br />

Paul’s goal is not to replicate<br />

every detail of Lincoln, but<br />

rather to follow a general<br />

New Zealand theme featuring<br />

buildings from the district.<br />

“They’ll go creatively in their<br />

own spaces, I don’t want to<br />

be too realistic about it,<br />

otherwise you get yourself into<br />

a bind.”<br />

He is constantly thinking<br />

about what to build.<br />

An OO-gauge layout (1:76<br />

scale), with structures such as<br />

the library, is next on his list.<br />

“Lying in bed last night, I<br />

thought I need to build another<br />

railway layout so I can run a<br />

lot of the models of trains and<br />

locomotives that I’ve built. So<br />

maybe that will be the next thing<br />

I do. Though because of the fire<br />

in the Port Hills, I wondered<br />

about doing the Lincoln Fire<br />

Station.”<br />

Paul recently took his model of<br />

the library to the library.<br />

“They were quite interested.<br />

I was sort of surprised. They<br />

wanted to put it on their<br />

Facebook page. There’s been<br />

quite a bit of response to that.”<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Business Breakfast<br />

If you own or represent a <strong>Selwyn</strong> business,<br />

please join us for the first Business Breakfast<br />

of <strong>2024</strong> to be held at Te Āra Atea, on<br />

Thursday 7 March, 7.30–9am.<br />

We’re excited to have Economist Benje Patterson<br />

as keynote speaker, sharing results of the latest<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Business Survey conducted during<br />

<strong>February</strong> <strong>2024</strong>.<br />

We want your feedback to help us Plant a Park<br />

We’re building a District Park in <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

and need your help to shape its future.<br />

District parks are large-scale parks that are<br />

created for community recreation and enjoyment.<br />

They are developed to host a wide range of<br />

activities from walking trails, play and recreation<br />

areas to botanical gardens, educational, event<br />

space and sports grounds. Our vision is that this<br />

will be a destination site for the whole district.<br />

We are currently seeking your ideas and vision for<br />

what features you would like to see our future park.<br />

Does it have big trees or a botanical garden?<br />

Sports fields? A large space for concerts and<br />

events? An area for farm animals or a<br />

built-in dog park?<br />

Your input is invaluable in guiding the development<br />

of this park into a space that reflects the desires<br />

of our community.<br />

This survey is a valuable tool to measure the<br />

pulse of the <strong>Selwyn</strong> business community and<br />

identify current challenges and opportunities.<br />

This event provides a chance to network with<br />

other <strong>Selwyn</strong> businesses, enjoy a delicious<br />

breakfast, and contribute further to our<br />

Economic Development Strategy work.<br />

Please scan the QR code to register for<br />

this event.<br />

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

Business Breakfast<br />

The future park will be located on the outskirts<br />

of Rolleston, near the corner of Levi and<br />

Weedons Roads. The first stage of development<br />

will be approximately 35 hectares. By comparison<br />

Foster Park is approximately 28 hectares.<br />

To share your vision, we invite you to participate<br />

in our survey at yoursay.selwyn.govt.nz<br />

The survey is open until Monday 4 March.<br />

SPORT<br />

Toughest match yet for Weedons<br />

• By Sam Coughlan<br />

WEEDONS ARE now just one<br />

game away from the chance<br />

to defend their Canterbury<br />

Country T20 title.<br />

But that game, against unbeaten<br />

Sefton in the last round of<br />

the competition, could prove to<br />

be their biggest challenge yet.<br />

A win will see Weedons make<br />

the final, but if they slip up,<br />

big wins for either Darfield or<br />

Leeston-Southbridge could see<br />

them leapfrogged.<br />

Weedons player-coach Jeremy<br />

Benton said Sefton would likely<br />

be their toughest match of the<br />

season.<br />

“Their big players stand up<br />

every single game.<br />

“Nothing too crazy, but they<br />

just know how to win games of<br />

cricket. Some people don’t really<br />

like it, but I massively respect it,<br />

and I just love the way that they<br />

go about their work.”<br />

Weedons would have their spot<br />

in the final confirmed already if<br />

not for a loss against Leeston on<br />

Saturday where they could only<br />

score 111 batting first.<br />

Despite a flurry of early<br />

wickets, including a screamer of<br />

a catch from Akhil Pant at first<br />

slip, Leeston brothers Harry and<br />

Sam Chamberlain scored 53 not<br />

out and 31 runs respectively to<br />

see them home.<br />

CRICKET ​<br />

Benton said Weedons’ batting<br />

let them down.<br />

“We were four down early or<br />

five down early like we have been<br />

the majority of the season.<br />

“If we sort of play half decent<br />

this weekend, we won’t need to<br />

worry about it.”<br />

Weedons and Sefton will be<br />

without their Canterbury Country<br />

representatives who travel to<br />

Napier to take on Hawke’s Bay –<br />

but Benton said either side<br />

was unlikely to be heavily impacted.<br />

“A big reason why Sefton and<br />

Weedons do go pretty well is because<br />

we don’t actually have too<br />

many country lads in the set-up,”<br />

he said.<br />

“Mackenzie (Smith, from<br />

Sefton) has been playing a little<br />

bit, but I don’t know if he will<br />

be in it, and they’re trying to get<br />

BOWLED ‘IM: Weedons’ Liam Robinson is bowled by the<br />

spin of Leeston-Southbridge’s Brayden Hill.<br />

some of our English lads.”<br />

Benton hopes the net-run-rate<br />

margin from Weedons (+1.920)<br />

to Leeston (-0.228) and Darfield<br />

(-1.543) is big enough there’s no<br />

way they can be overtaken – but<br />

he said there’s not much point<br />

worrying about it.<br />

“I guess we just focus on playing<br />

alright on Friday.<br />

“It’s a good excuse for us to<br />

really go out and play with a bit<br />

more freedom and just give our<br />

batters a chance to have a whack.<br />

“And yeah, hopefully, get a win<br />

up on Sefton.”<br />

The last round of the T20 competition<br />

is being played on Friday<br />

night, to avoid a clash with<br />

music festival Electric Avenue on<br />

Saturday.<br />

Country gears up for<br />

Hawke Cup challenge<br />

• By Sam Coughlan<br />

LEESTON all-rounder Sam<br />

Chamberlain is preparing to lead<br />

Canterbury Country in their<br />

biggest match of the season.<br />

Country will take on regular<br />

rivals Hawke’s Bay for the<br />

prestigious Hawke Cup, with<br />

competition starting on<br />

Friday.<br />

The cup, often referred to as<br />

the Ranfurly Shield of provincial<br />

cricket, was won by Hawke’s Bay<br />

in November when they beat<br />

Country convincingly. Country<br />

previously held the cup in 2022,<br />

when they won it off Hawke’s Bay.<br />

Now, after making it through<br />

the upper South Island qualifiers<br />

against the likes of Nelson<br />

and Marlborough, Country will<br />

have the chance to win it back in<br />

Napier.<br />

Chamberlain, who captains<br />

the side, said the rematch with<br />

Hawke’s Bay provides an extra<br />

level of motivation.<br />

“We’ve created a bit of a rivalry<br />

with these guys over the last<br />

couple of years.<br />

“They’re a very strong team<br />

and have a lot of representative<br />

players so I know it’ll be a good<br />

challenge, but I think everyone’s<br />

excited by that.”<br />

Leeston-Southbridge representatives<br />

Chamberlain and<br />

his brother Harry have been<br />

Country regulars in recent years<br />

and were joined by Darfield’s<br />

Jesse Frew for their last match,<br />

the South Island final against<br />

Nelson.<br />

Robbie Foulkes, also from<br />

Darfield, will be in the mix after<br />

returning from the U19 World<br />

Cup while English all-rounder<br />

George Hill, playing club cricket<br />

at Weedons, is understood to be<br />

in contention for a call-up.<br />

CRICKET CLUB ​<br />

Chamberlain said the side had<br />

learned lessons from their previous<br />

loss to Hawke’s Bay.<br />

“We had a few guys for whom<br />

it was their first taste of that level<br />

of Hawke Cup cricket when we<br />

played them last time.<br />

“It’s a battle of attrition<br />

at times, so there’s got to be<br />

momentum swings, and times<br />

when they’ve to sort of knuckle<br />

down and stick it in.”<br />

The three-day match against<br />

Hawke’s Bay starts on Friday in<br />

Napier.<br />

ON TARGET: Shooters take aim at the Oakes Challenge<br />

Shield match at the Malvern Rifle Club.<br />

Malvern wins 100th<br />

Oakes challenge<br />

THE MALVERN Rifle Club has<br />

claimed the Oakes Challenge<br />

Shield in the 100th year of the<br />

competition.<br />

Held between Malvern and the<br />

Ashburton District Rifle Club for<br />

the first time in 1924, the winners<br />

of the shield host the challengers<br />

each year.<br />

Two teams of both target rifle<br />

and F-class shooters contested the<br />

match at Malvern on Saturday.<br />

The scores of the top eight<br />

from each team were combined<br />

on a “points down” from the<br />

maximum and “centres up” to<br />

determine the winning club<br />

team, with 10 counting shots per<br />

shooter at 300 and 600 yards.<br />

It was a fine and hot day with a<br />

southwesterly wind, which made<br />

for very challenging conditions at<br />

300 yards, with frequent shifts in<br />

the wind.<br />

Conditions were more settled,<br />

or more predictable, at 600 yards,<br />

with generally better scores.<br />

Malvern’s Andre du Toit,<br />

Daniel Alexander and Ran Bao<br />

scored maximums at 600 yards,<br />

while Malvern’s Sam Kershaw<br />

and Ashburton’s John Snowden<br />

were both only three points down<br />

for the day.<br />

Malvern won with a score of<br />

66 points down and 45 centres<br />

up, versus Ashburton’s 81 points<br />

down and 40 centres up.<br />

SELWYN RURAL LIFE<br />

Advertising Feature<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> benefits from graduate<br />

rural vet scheme<br />

• By Isabelle Teresa<br />

24-year-old Sam beams with<br />

enthusiasm. Having lived in the<br />

North Island all her life and gained<br />

her Bachelor of Veterinary Science at<br />

Massey University, she snapped up the<br />

chance to start her veterinary career in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s rural communities, supported<br />

by a government scheme.<br />

The Ministry for Primary Industries’<br />

Voluntary Bonding Scheme is<br />

designed to ease the shortage of rural<br />

veterinarians working with production<br />

animals and working dogs. Since 2009,<br />

it has supported 449 graduate vets. This<br />

year’s intake has just been announced<br />

– 33 graduates, linked to 24 rural<br />

communities across the country.<br />

Samantha Johnson is one of these<br />

graduates, splitting her time between<br />

Leeston and Lincoln VetEnts. This<br />

gives her a great introduction to the<br />

variety of rural veterinary life, with<br />

the lifestyle block focus at Lincoln,<br />

and Leeston tending more towards<br />

farming work. She loves heading out<br />

in the well-equipped VetEnt truck to<br />

tackle whatever she’s faced with on<br />

farm. Working with the “largies”, as she<br />

affectionally calls them, is her particular<br />

passion.<br />

Sam always knew she wanted to be a<br />

vet, right from her first visit to a clinic<br />

as a kiddie with the family dog. She was<br />

obsessed while growing up but even so,<br />

money could have been a real barrier.<br />

The training is long and expensive, and<br />

not everyone has financial supports<br />

within their family.<br />

Vet graduates typically leave with a<br />

student loan of up to $100,000. This<br />

bonding scheme pays $55,000 over<br />

five years, directly against the loan.<br />

Graduates must complete at least three<br />

years before payments start.<br />

Sam is very grateful that this funding<br />

meant she could stay in NZ to start her<br />

career, instead of chasing higher starter<br />

salaries in Australia.<br />

The veterinary clinics are also very<br />

glad to have her. Jessica Rees, Leeston’s<br />

Clinic Coordinator, says “Having her<br />

production animal expertise on the<br />

team has greatly expanded our services.<br />

And because the scheme lasts for five<br />

years, Sam is building real and lasting<br />

connections.”<br />

Sam’s mentor at Leeston, Annalisa<br />

Pope, also speaks enthusiastically. “Sam’s<br />

energy – and her up-to-the minute<br />

training – is giving a real lift to all of<br />

us. It’s a two-way street – we’re learning<br />

from her just as she is from us.”<br />

Sam with her dog Franklin<br />

Sam’s genuine duty of care to animals<br />

is beyond question – she says: “I can be<br />

their voice.” <strong>Selwyn</strong> District is lucky that<br />

this scheme brought her to us.<br />

It’s back – the tree<br />

trimming scam<br />

• By Isabelle Teresa<br />

This scam is on the rise again in regional<br />

and rural towns across Canterbury, and<br />

it’s a particularly unpleasant one as it often<br />

preys on the elderly and vulnerable.<br />

The scenario goes like this… Someone<br />

knocks on your door, wearing a high vis<br />

vest – the universal passport! They say<br />

that they were working on another tree<br />

job near you, and noticed that you have a<br />

dying/diseased/dangerous tree. They offer<br />

to trim it for you at a reduced price, “while<br />

they are in the area”.<br />

Sometimes they will knock on every<br />

door, but more often, they will have<br />

scoped you out. They’re looking for people<br />

who look vulnerable and are likely to<br />

accept an offer of help – they’ll check for<br />

a badly kept garden or street frontage,<br />

disability-related ramps, handles or car<br />

stickers, and elderly people gardening on<br />

their own.<br />

Additional nasty details are that they<br />

may target people whose first language is<br />

not English, or where there has recently<br />

been a natural disaster such as earthquake<br />

or flooding.<br />

Once they’re on your property, they<br />

might demand cash up front, start the job<br />

then require payment before completing<br />

it, refuse to clear the trimmings unless you<br />

pay more, and are undoubtedly scoping<br />

the property and what you’ve got in your<br />

garage or shed.<br />

And of course, they will not do a good<br />

job on the tree, which might have been<br />

perfectly healthy in the first place.<br />

Real arborist companies DO:<br />

• Send out a qualified arborist to assess the<br />

task, access and any risks<br />

• Provide a detailed quote, in writing<br />

• Invoice for payment once the work is<br />

completed to your satisfaction<br />

• Have a proper website, with uptodate<br />

certification and insurance certificates<br />

and customer recommendations and<br />

references<br />

• Provide their own, serviced equipment<br />

and safety equipment<br />

• Understand the legal requirements of<br />

tree work, including when working near<br />

power lines<br />

Real arborist companies DO NOT:<br />

• Door knock for work<br />

The way to protect yourself is to get at<br />

least three written quotes, ideally from<br />

companies that are members of the<br />

NZ Arboricultural Association -<br />

see nzarb.org.nz.<br />

The scam is serious and frequent<br />

enough that it is highlighted both on the<br />

scambusters.org website and Age Concern<br />

websites. Talk with your friends, family<br />

and neighbours to spread the word.<br />

Gumleaf + Alps: All your spouting<br />

and protection needs sorted<br />

Local company Gumleaf Gutter<br />

Guard is well known across the<br />

region for its innovative yet simple<br />

gutter guards that protect your<br />

costly spouting. The guards keep<br />

out everything from leaf litter to<br />

hail to snow to nesting birds and<br />

even rats. No more vermin in the<br />

roof or floods from blocked-down<br />

pipes and spouting.<br />

The Gumleaf Gutter Guard<br />

was developed in Australia more<br />

than 20 years ago, and has been<br />

providing a quality and effective<br />

solution in New Zealand for the<br />

last decade.<br />

Having these guards installed is<br />

a huge benefit – quite simply, they<br />

extend the life of the spouting to<br />

the life of the roof.<br />

Gumleaf is happy to install the<br />

guards themselves, although the<br />

ease of the design is such that the<br />

installation is 100% DIY-friendly.<br />

Company owner Rohan Rudd says:<br />

“As long as you have a head for<br />

heights, installing Gumleaf gutter<br />

guarding is as easy as A B C –<br />

made even easier with the guidance<br />

of our instructional PDFs and<br />

YouTube videos on our website.”<br />

In an exciting development,<br />

Gumleaf has partnered with Alps<br />

Continuous Spouting to provide a<br />

comprehensive service for all your<br />

spouting needs.<br />

Like all the best<br />

partnerships, this<br />

developed naturally –<br />

Ben Kruger of the Alps<br />

Continuous Spouting<br />

team had been<br />

regularly purchasing<br />

and installing<br />

Gumleaf Gutter<br />

Guard for the last<br />

ten years, impressed<br />

by its quality and<br />

effectiveness. The two<br />

companies decided<br />

to partner, to be able<br />

to offer a full service<br />

combination for their<br />

clients.<br />

This means that<br />

you can now access<br />

a coordinated<br />

design and install<br />

of any aspect of<br />

quality spouting and<br />

guttering, Gumleaf<br />

gutterguarding,<br />

fascia, downpipes<br />

and any other<br />

weather protection<br />

that you may need,<br />

with professional<br />

installation to<br />

ensure a great<br />

looking finish. Visit www.<br />

alpscontinuousspouting.com<br />

to view the extensive range of<br />

product available, including<br />

different finishes and colour<br />

options, for domestic and<br />

commercial use.<br />

Much of Gumleaf ’s work<br />

had already been coming<br />

from repeat business,<br />

customers being happy with<br />

both the product quality<br />

and the service. Customers<br />

requesting a quote receive it<br />

within 24 hours, and Rohan<br />

says he will “go anywhere to<br />

provide a quote”.<br />

This partnership will open<br />

up new spouting services<br />

for clients, while upholding<br />

the same level of premium<br />

service.<br />

Infinite Energy NZ – designing your<br />

solar solution<br />

Since 2013, our family-owned company has specialised<br />

in designing and installing solar solutions across<br />

Canterbury and the lower South Island. We customise<br />

and design solutions for architectural, residential,<br />

agricultural and commercial projects.<br />

Our solar power technologies for home and business<br />

encompass all options to best suit each client and<br />

context. These options range from grid-connected<br />

systems, grid-tied hybrid with battery backup, through to<br />

entirely off-grid (standalone) systems.<br />

With branches in Cromwell and Christchurch, we<br />

offer indepth knowledge about the various geographic<br />

and weather conditions that the South Island can throw<br />

at us! See our website for a sample of the innovative,<br />

challenging projects we have undertaken. This includes<br />

the 2023 contract for the largescale installation of 304 x<br />

545W JA Solar panels (165.68kwp) onto the rooftop of<br />

the Connetics office/workshop building at the Waterloo<br />

Business Park in Christchurch.<br />

With over 10 years of<br />

experience under our belts<br />

as a company, and many<br />

more collective years across<br />

the experience of our<br />

talented staff, we are deeply<br />

committed to the renewable<br />

energies industries of New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Juice Electrical – installing<br />

your solar solution<br />

Here at Juice Electrical, we deliver<br />

trustworthy and quality work by Master<br />

Electricians across the full range of<br />

home and business electrical needs in<br />

Canterbury.<br />

One of our particular passions is to make<br />

the world a better place, one roof at a<br />

time, by installing solar power systems.<br />

Solar technology is an ever-developing<br />

field, with new features and products<br />

entering the market all the time. These<br />

days, customers are delighted not only<br />

with reducing their carbon footprint and<br />

their power bills, but also by increasing<br />

their property’s street appeal, with<br />

the black-edged sleek panels available<br />

through us in our partnership with<br />

Infinite Energy NZ.<br />

It’s not all about looks, though. Our<br />

experienced team will put in the hard<br />

work to ensure that every aspect of your<br />

installation is a success. We don’t believe<br />

in one-size-fits-all packages – instead, we<br />

offer a full appraisal of your home and<br />

energy use, reviewing power bills, as well<br />

as roof orientation and pitch, and your<br />

requirements/expectations of the system.<br />

This thorough process ensures your<br />

install will be not only efficient, but also<br />

perfectly suited to your property’s unique<br />

characteristics.<br />

Gaining access to reliable, up-to-date<br />

information about solar technologies can<br />

be a challenge. That’s why we recommend<br />

working with a company with a proven<br />

track record. Our team is experienced<br />

across the full range of customised solar<br />

power systems, including:<br />

· Grid-connected solar power systems<br />

· Grid-tied hybrid solar power with<br />

lithium-ion battery backup<br />

· Entirely off-grid, standalone systems<br />

However, it’s not about what we<br />

say, it’s about what you say. Clients<br />

across Canterbury trust the integrity,<br />

dependability and quality skills of the<br />

Juice team, coming back to us for all their<br />

electrical needs – check out some of the<br />

client recommendations on our website,<br />

then pick up the phone.<br />

Think autumn? Think lawns<br />

Whether you’re refreshing an existing<br />

lawn or planning a whole new one,<br />

Autumn is the season for doing this work<br />

– it’s the golden window of opportunity<br />

between the two extremes of summer<br />

and winter, and this timeslot cannot be<br />

missed.<br />

The Outdoor Space is on hand to help.<br />

Its professional landscape designers,<br />

landscape construction team and garden<br />

maintenance specialists deeply appreciate<br />

the importance and impact of a healthy<br />

and beautiful lawn, both in terms of your<br />

lifestyle enjoyment of your own home and<br />

in terms of your property’s value.<br />

The maintenance support offered<br />

includes any aspects of mowing, aeration,<br />

dethatching, leaf clearance, feeding, and<br />

control of weeds, fungus and pests, that<br />

you require.<br />

If you’re seeking a new lawn, The<br />

Outdoor Space can advise on and<br />

implement the best style of lawn for<br />

your needs. It can organise and carry out<br />

seeding, hydroseeding and installation<br />

of readylawn. It also specialises in<br />

integrating unobtrusive irrigation<br />

systems to keep your garden flourishing,<br />

supplying and installing manual, fully<br />

automatic and even wifi systems that<br />

clients can operate with ease.<br />

Have you considered artificial lawn?<br />

This can add a modern, exciting look<br />

to your outdoor setting, whether<br />

used for residential landscaping, or<br />

for tough areas of play and sport for<br />

the kids and pets. Not only is it green<br />

all year round and requires little<br />

maintenance, it also reduces allergy<br />

triggers.<br />

Aaron and his team have been<br />

creating magic in <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s gardens<br />

since 2009. The Outdoor Space is<br />

family owned and operated, based<br />

in Rolleston and working across<br />

the district. Its projects range from<br />

working within existing gardens<br />

and spaces, to designing for the new<br />

builds that are springing up all<br />

over <strong>Selwyn</strong> – domestic and<br />

commercial.<br />

Pick the brains of the expert<br />

staff about new plantings.<br />

Aaron says: “Many clients<br />

appreciate our hands-on and<br />

collaborative approach – we<br />

discuss options with you and<br />

then bring the plants to site and<br />

place them out so that you can<br />

see exactly what is proposed.<br />

Once you’re happy, we’ll do<br />

the planting. All our plants are<br />

sourced from local nurseries and we have<br />

even started growing a few ourselves.”<br />

IT HASN’T been an easy summer<br />

in the garden.<br />

Exceptionally unsettled weather<br />

has occurred in all parts of New<br />

Zealand with extremes of heat,<br />

wind and rain. Regardless of<br />

this, <strong>February</strong> is still a significant<br />

month for harvesting crops and<br />

reaping the benefits of your hard<br />

work both in the home orchard<br />

and vegetable garden.<br />

Summer salad vegetables<br />

should be at their peak this<br />

month. Ensure plants are regularly<br />

watered to maintain healthy<br />

growth, especially cucumbers,<br />

tomatoes, lettuce and radishes.<br />

Other typical summer veges include<br />

beans (climber and dwarf),<br />

aubergines, courgettes, beetroot,<br />

corn, onions, peppers and pumpkin,<br />

and should all be ready to<br />

harvest.<br />

Remove any plants that have<br />

cropped and finished for the<br />

season to provide room for winter<br />

vegetables (broccoli, brussels<br />

sprouts, cabbages and cauliflower)<br />

which can now be planted to mature<br />

in the early winter. Consider<br />

saving seed from your favourite<br />

summer vegetables, particularly<br />

beans and tomatoes.<br />

Late season’s peaches and plums<br />

are now maturing, and apples<br />

and pears are beginning to ripen,<br />

particularly early varieties such<br />

as gala. Fruit are now forming on<br />

citrus trees (ripening in midwinter).<br />

Ensure all fruit trees are<br />

well mulched to help maintain<br />

soil moisture and reduce weed<br />

growth.<br />

Most strawberry fruiting has<br />

now finished, so allow growth to<br />

provide runners for next seasons<br />

plantings or remove old plants. It’s<br />

possible to obtain a second crop<br />

on raspberry plants in <strong>February</strong>,<br />

especially if old wood has<br />

been removed after the first crop.<br />

Continue tying up new season’s<br />

Dealing with extreme weather<br />

BUMPER CROP: Summer greens should now be ready for harvesting.<br />

growth for next season’s crop.<br />

Almost all herbs thrive in the<br />

hot sunny summer months.<br />

However, a number do flower and<br />

go to seed in late-<strong>February</strong> so remove<br />

and replace with fresh new<br />

plants. You can also gather leaves<br />

for drying which is easy to do.<br />

Simply place the leaves in a shallow<br />

tray in a dry, sunny, sheltered<br />

position. Leave them for about<br />

two to three weeks, which should<br />

be sufficient time for drying.<br />

<strong>February</strong> provides the peak of<br />

display for summer annuals that<br />

thrive in the hot summer months,<br />

like cosmos, marigolds, petunias,<br />

salvias, portulacas and zinnias.<br />

Plant ‘potted colour’ to brighten<br />

up containers or special parts<br />

of the garden. Continue deadheading<br />

plants to help maintain<br />

continuous flowering.<br />

Keep roses well-watered and<br />

apply mulch to keep moisture and<br />

nutrients in.<br />

Get your<br />

garlic in<br />

the ground<br />

WE ALL know garlic wards off<br />

vampires, but did you know it also<br />

keeps away aphids, apple scab,<br />

leaf-curl and mosquitoes?<br />

Crush a few cloves, soak in a<br />

litre of water for a couple of days<br />

and use as a spray to keep at bay<br />

ants, spiders, caterpillars and cabbage<br />

and tomato worms too.<br />

And, did you also know, it’s said<br />

to provide many health benefits<br />

I’m not qualified to list?<br />

To put it simply, garlic’s right up<br />

there with marigolds as the companion<br />

plant every garden should<br />

have and it is soon time to plant it.<br />

Look for a well-drained spot –<br />

pots, hanging baskets or any available<br />

space in your raised garden<br />

will suit.<br />

If you’re growing it for its<br />

guardian capabilities, plant it next<br />

to your roses to ward off aphids,<br />

beneath apple and peach trees to<br />

prevent apple scab and leaf-curl,<br />

and next to your tomatoes to protect<br />

against red spider.<br />

Dig in some compost, and<br />

nitrophoska blue fertiliser or use<br />

a potting mix if you’re planting in<br />

baskets or pots.<br />

Plant single cloves twice the<br />

depth of the actual clove, compost<br />

over the top and don’t fill in with<br />

soil. Then harvest later in the year.<br />

It’s as easy as that.<br />

Corolla enters brave new hybrid world<br />

2.0-litre petrol model, and only<br />

offering hybrid petrol-electrical<br />

powertrains across the entire<br />

range.<br />

Corolla, is one of the best<br />

selling cars on the planet with<br />

more than 50 million sold since<br />

it launched nearly 60-years ago.<br />

Its huge success over this time<br />

has been anchored on it being<br />

solid, dependable and affordable,<br />

and never waivering from those<br />

core attributes which made<br />

it an automotive icon. At the<br />

same time, it has embraced new<br />

technology including safety and<br />

been responsive to changing<br />

buyer demand.<br />

The 12th generation Corolla<br />

has been with us since 2019,<br />

and a quantum advance over<br />

its predecessor with a more<br />

engaging driving experience,<br />

something that hasn’t<br />

traditionally been of strength<br />

of this model. It really hits the<br />

mark by offering high levels of<br />

advanced safety technology,<br />

and clever touches such as<br />

Mobile Assistant. This uses<br />

Motoring with Bob Nettleton<br />

Siri or Google Assistant voice<br />

commands to perform simple<br />

connectivity tasks like sending<br />

a text message or setting a<br />

reminder.<br />

Modern consumers prefer<br />

hybrid-electric powertrains<br />

that are now the most popular<br />

choice across the Corolla range.<br />

In the last two years, a lot of<br />

that is down to the now ditched<br />

generous Government clear car<br />

rebate. While the pace of buyer<br />

interest in EVs and hybrids<br />

will slow with the demise<br />

of incentive, interest won’t<br />

evaporate. I expect they will<br />

continue to appeal to those who<br />

value low emissions and running<br />

costs, and vehicle fleet operators<br />

striving to reduce their carbon<br />

footprints. Nearly two years<br />

ago there were eight models in<br />

the Corolla line-up. Going all<br />

hybrids has halved that figure,<br />

with a hybrid model among the<br />

casualties, with Toyota hitting<br />

the delete button on the sedan.<br />

This is the first time in decades<br />

this body style hasn’t featured<br />

in the Corolla NZ range. A<br />

shame really, because the latest<br />

version was one of the best, but<br />

buyer interest has waned even<br />

from the rental car firms and<br />

fleet operators, traditionally the<br />

largest purchasers of this model.<br />

Firing the opening shot in<br />

the hybridised three hatchback<br />

and one wagon Corolla family<br />

is the price leading $36,995<br />

GX, followed by the mid-range<br />

$39,190 SX and rounding the<br />

hatch offering, is the flagship<br />

$42,190 ZR being reviewed<br />

here. There’s a GX wagon<br />

available for $36,990. The only<br />

remaining petrol only model is<br />

the $76,000 high performance<br />

229kw 1.6-litre turbo GR hatch.<br />

It’s only available in very limited<br />

numbers, with the 150 units a<br />

year earmarked for our market<br />

allocated via a ballot system. An<br />

optional $1000 two-tone paint<br />

job buys you a black roof that<br />

contrasts really well with the<br />

bolder colours in the Corolla<br />

paint swatch, to provide a more<br />

sophisticated look.<br />

From a driving pleasure<br />

perspective, the sweet 125kW<br />

2.0-litre dynamic torque internal<br />

combustion engine naturally<br />

aspirated engine will be missed.<br />

It always impressed with its<br />

strong and zippy performance<br />

and crisp throttle responsive.<br />

By comparison the 1.8-litre<br />

petrol electric hybrid, even with<br />

a combined power output has<br />

been bumped up to 103kw for a<br />

healthy 13kw power gain, lacks<br />

that zing. The extra urge for the<br />

hybrid models is off the back of<br />

Ratings out of 10: Performance 6; Handling 7; Build Quality<br />

7; Comfort 7; Passenger and Load Space 5; Fuel Economy,<br />

on road test average consumption: 5.1L /100km Styling 7;<br />

Safety – Five Star ANCAP crash rating.<br />

Overall points out of 10: 7<br />

the addition of a slightly larger<br />

and powerful battery pack.<br />

The extra performance is<br />

most obvious in around town<br />

motoring. Here the test car now<br />

runs for longer periods on flat<br />

terrain in EV only at speeds of<br />

up to 50km/h. The extra hybrid<br />

heft is less noticeable at higher<br />

speed open road cruising.<br />

Dropping the transmission<br />

into Sport mode was the best<br />

option for brisk overtaking, or<br />

maintaining a respectable pace<br />

on long hill climbs. It’s a pity<br />

the Corolla here doesn’t use the<br />

same impressive 135kW 2.0-litre<br />

petrol electric hybrid system that<br />

features in this model on some<br />

overseas markets. It does a great<br />

job in the Corolla Cross that<br />

arrived here about a year ago.<br />

Maybe Toyota is keeping their<br />

powder dry on it until we see an<br />

all-new Corolla some time in<br />

2025.<br />

The Constant Variable<br />

Transmission automatic has a<br />

dynamic shift featuring a gear<br />

and belt drive system to improve<br />

transmission performance in the<br />

lower ratios, where belt efficiency<br />

isn’t so great. It uses a gear drive<br />

from standing starts, resulting<br />

in stronger acceleration, and<br />

reduces the irritating momentary<br />

sluggishness off the mark that<br />

characterised the CVT in the<br />

outgoing model.<br />

There are lots of positives<br />

about this latest Corolla but<br />

not a modestly proportioned<br />

cabin. Passenger space for rear<br />

seat occupants is cramped with<br />

limited head and legroom. Large<br />

wrap-around driver and front<br />

passenger seats accentuate the<br />

slightly claustrophobic feel for<br />

rear seat occupants.<br />

Befitting its top-of-the-range<br />

status, the ZR is equipped<br />

with a large colour head-up<br />

display, 18-inch alloys, leather<br />

and suede accented sports<br />

front seats, 8-speaker premium<br />

audio system, ambient cabin<br />

illumination, and high-grade bi-<br />

LED headlamps.<br />

This new model has an even<br />

smarter version of Toyota’s Safety<br />

Sense technology package, with<br />

one of the headline changes a<br />

pedestrian and cyclist detection<br />

system. Some other notables<br />

items from this package’s bag of<br />

safety tricks, are autonomous<br />

emergency braking, all speed<br />

dynamic radar cruise control<br />

and automatic high beam on and<br />

off.<br />

Handling went up several<br />

notches with his newest Corolla<br />

I cannot remember a version<br />

that got close to this one for crisp<br />

road holding and supple riding.<br />

The suspension acts quickly and<br />

decisively to calm and soothe<br />

the vehicle and its occupants<br />

through unexpected changes in<br />

direction by the driver, or the<br />

road surface.<br />

This Corolla is full of surprises,<br />

most positive around how it<br />

rides, drives and handles.<br />

A DARFIELD farmer has<br />

spoken of watching a man leap into<br />

the flooded Hawkins River to try and<br />

save himself after a helicopter winch<br />

rescue operation failed.<br />

Rod May had taken his tractor to<br />

the scene on Greendale Rd, to try and<br />

reach the middle-aged man who had<br />

been clinging to the branches of a tree<br />

in the rising waters on Sunday night.<br />

The man had driven into the<br />

flooded river, escaped from his car<br />

and ca led emergency services from<br />

his ce lphone which he managed to<br />

keep with him.<br />

Ultimately, a second helicopter<br />

winch operation plucked the man<br />

to safety after he was swept downstream.<br />

It was a happy ending to the<br />

ordeal which had lasted more than<br />

three hours. The rescue was among<br />

several in Canterbury on Sunday in<br />

flooded rivers.<br />

May said he and his family had just<br />

had dinner when a neighbour alerted<br />

them. Arriving about 8.50pm, he saw<br />

the floodwaters were too high for the<br />

tractor, however, he used its lights for<br />

i luminating the site where the man<br />

was. • Turn to page 5<br />

Money<br />

taken<br />

after big<br />

pokie win<br />

• By Ba ry Clarke<br />

A BAR patron who won $1200<br />

on the pokies may have been<br />

targeted by thieves moments after<br />

she co lected the money.<br />

A group of men who were in<br />

the bar a the same time are the<br />

focus of police inquiries. It is<br />

believed they watched her being<br />

paid, and then quickly swooped.<br />

The incident happened at The<br />

Famous Grouse Hotel in Lincoln<br />

two weeks ago.<br />

After she was paid out a the<br />

bar, the men who had been<br />

si ting nearby went over and<br />

congratulated her. While she was<br />

distracted the money disappeared<br />

from her handbag. She only<br />

realised it was gone after she left<br />

the hotel.<br />

Police have taken CCTV<br />

security camera footage from the<br />

hotel which shows the men going<br />

over to the woman and mobbing<br />

her in a congratulatory way. The<br />

footage also captures a hand from<br />

one of the men going towards the<br />

bag.<br />

Police say they may have<br />

identified one of the group but<br />

aren’t saying anymore about<br />

the incident. The <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

understands the men are from<br />

the Amberley area.<br />

THESE DAYS more and more<br />

Kiwis are growing their own<br />

are taking a natural and organic<br />

approach to gardening. This<br />

means less chemicals and more<br />

be beneficial to grow next to each<br />

other.<br />

This approach of growing<br />

certain plants for the benefit of<br />

other plants is ca led companion<br />

planting and the idea has been<br />

around for centuries.<br />

And marigolds are probably the<br />

most famous companion plant<br />

around.<br />

This brightly coloured flower<br />

just happens to produce a strong<br />

and their roots also contain a<br />

pesticidal chemical which ki ls<br />

living in the soil).<br />

Marigolds are said to deter<br />

aphids from tomatoes and roses,<br />

and nematodes from potatoes and<br />

While SPCA has tried for years to work with the<br />

greyhound industry to improve greyhound welfare,<br />

the organisation says the industry has been unable to<br />

adequately address its animal welfare problems.<br />

The animal welfare group believes it is clear the<br />

greyhound industry cannot meet its animal welfare<br />

obligations and is no longer acceptable in New Zealand<br />

society. A recent survey carried out by an independent<br />

research company on behalf of SPCA reports that<br />

74% of New Zealanders would vote to ban greyhound<br />

racing in a referendum.<br />

SPRING IS a time when it’s<br />

desirable to be working is the<br />

garden.<br />

However, there are hidden<br />

dangers and one of those is<br />

developing legionnaires’ disease.<br />

Here are some guidelines to<br />

avoid that happening<br />

•Minimise the amount of dust<br />

present when working in the<br />

garden.<br />

• Water gardens and indoor<br />

plants using a gentle spray.<br />

• Read the warning label on<br />

bagged composts or po ting mix.<br />

• Wear gloves.<br />

• Wear a mask so that any dust<br />

is filtered out before you can<br />

breathe it in.<br />

• Dampen po ting mixes before<br />

use.<br />

• Open bags of soil products<br />

slowly, away from the face.<br />

• Make sure the working area<br />

(for example, the glasshouse or<br />

po ting shed) is we l ventilated.<br />

• See a doctor if you develop a<br />

flu-like i lness that seems to be<br />

worsening.<br />

• Wash hands thoroughly<br />

after gardening or handling soil<br />

products.<br />

These are simple, easy and<br />

natural steps that a l gardeners<br />

can take to reduce risk while<br />

continuing to enjoy their garden.<br />

[Edition datE]<br />

Wait until you are in<br />

With the house design chosen and build<br />

underway, it is really tempting to start<br />

choosing brand new furniture for your<br />

new home, placing items on order before<br />

moving in.<br />

Holding off until you are in is a really<br />

good idea.<br />

Often older furniture can look tired<br />

in the setting of a brand new home yet<br />

choosing new items before you are in and<br />

have a true appreciation of the spatial<br />

elements of the home, can be a mistake.<br />

For starters, you might not have the<br />

budget right at the end of the build for<br />

splashing out on new lounge and bedroom<br />

suites or other pieces for the home.<br />

Secondly, there can be surprises as to what<br />

will work and what definitely needs to go<br />

on TradeMe or taken to the local op shop.<br />

The old chest or armchair which<br />

has been in the family for 100 years<br />

may look great in the new house once<br />

reconditioned with new stain or paint then<br />

re-upholstered. Tired old chairs, settees or<br />

ottomans can come to life when restored,<br />

providing a comfy seat in the bedroom<br />

or another corner of the house while also<br />

bringing a touch of colour to an otherwise<br />

neutrally toned décor. Bright paint<br />

and stencilling can also be used to add<br />

vibrancy to furniture for a child’s room.<br />

Furnishing items may be given a totally<br />

different purpose, adding character to a<br />

hallway or bedroom. A variety of objects<br />

can suffice as bedside cabinets created<br />

from stools, drums or old suitcases once<br />

destined for the dump or Sallies. Cushions<br />

and throws will also spice up a bed and<br />

take away from the nudity of a room that<br />

still needs a little more furniture.<br />

Fun wall hangings might be created by<br />

covering a purchased canvas with some<br />

bright and attractive fabric. You could also<br />

create your own artwork or let the children<br />

exhibit theirs. Bedheads might be made by<br />

covering plywood with Dacron and fabric<br />

while the odd feature wall will add a more<br />

homely feel.<br />

There are many great ways to spice up<br />

a home and reduce the costs when funds<br />

are tight after a build, and landscaping<br />

expenses might be a priority.<br />

Holding off will give you time to<br />

decide on the furnishings that will work<br />

best in the home in terms of look and<br />

functionality. There is also the added<br />

pleasure associated with acquiring<br />

furniture and furnishings over time, rather<br />

than having the retail satiation fix all in<br />

one hit.<br />

Holding off until you are in<br />

is a really good idea.<br />

Carpet Comfort<br />

19<br />

While many homes are opting for hardwood or<br />

laminate flooring, carpet is still one of the most<br />

popular choices for New Zealand houses as it<br />

provides warmth and soundproofing and is soft<br />

underfoot. The question often arises, “Is wool or<br />

synthetic carpet the best for me?” Both options have<br />

pros and cons, so consider these before making a<br />

choice that suits your lifestyle and preferences.<br />

It makes sense that wool carpet is a natural choice<br />

for Kiwis, with more sheep than people in this<br />

country. Wool is a sustainable product that provides<br />

a soft and luxurious feel, is highly durable and can<br />

outlast synthetic carpet. It is a natural insulator,<br />

helping to keep your home warm, and with its<br />

soundproofing qualities, it minimises noise levels<br />

within the home. Wool is naturally flame-resistant<br />

and has a high level of water-based resistance to stains<br />

but can tend to absorb and retain liquid. It is best to<br />

avoid using wool carpets in areas exposed to water.<br />

The price of wool carpets may be why people choose<br />

synthetic over wool options.<br />

While nylon, polyester, or polypropylene carpets<br />

are generally more affordable than wool carpets, they<br />

also have pros and cons. Carpets made from synthetic<br />

fibres have high stain resistance and are easily<br />

maintained, making them a practical choice for hightraffic<br />

areas and households with children or pets.<br />

However, as they are manufactured, sustainability and<br />

the carbon footprint may be factors in your decision.<br />

Another consideration is that solution-dyed nylon<br />

carpets are fade-resistant making them a good choice<br />

in New Zealand’s harsh direct sun.<br />

Nowadays, synthetic carpets may look and feel<br />

similar to wool carpeting, yet they may not match<br />

wool’s natural warmth and luxury.<br />

Whether you are selecting flooring for your new<br />

home or choosing to replace your existing flooring,<br />

the choice between wool and synthetic carpet comes<br />

down to your personal preference, budget, and<br />

lifestyle factors. Consider affordability, durability<br />

and, of course, comfort with the feel of the carpeting<br />

underfoot. Carpet is an investment, so choose the one<br />

that best suits your needs to experience comfort and<br />

style on your floor.<br />
