Former soldier jailed for brutal attacks over toast<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

A WOMAN subjected to a series<br />

of brutal beatings from a former<br />

soldier because she had eaten<br />

“too much toast” is struggling<br />

to shake what she saw in her<br />

attacker’s eyes as he meted out his<br />

punishment.<br />

Benjamin Meredith told the<br />

woman to “just handle it while I<br />

punch your teeth out”.<br />

But now, 45-year-old Meredith<br />

insists he is “<strong>10</strong>0 per cent sincerely<br />

apologetic and remorseful”<br />

and wants to change since he has<br />

“found the Lord.”<br />

“I have now found faith in my<br />

life. Obeying God has given me<br />

guidance to obey the law,” he<br />

told Judge Michael Crosbie in the<br />

Christchurch District Court.<br />

But it didn’t stop him receiving<br />

five years four months jail<br />

when he appeared for sentencing<br />

on admitted charges of causing<br />

grievous bodily harm with intent,<br />

impeding breathing and a representative<br />

charge of threatening<br />

to kill.<br />

Judge Crosbie allowed Meredith<br />

to start the hearing with<br />

a karakia, spoken first in te reo<br />

Māori and then in English.<br />

Meredith, who previously<br />

served in the New Zealand Defence<br />

Force for six years,<br />

acknowledged the seriousness<br />

of the offending and said he accepted<br />

responsibility and wanted<br />

to leave behind old habits.<br />

He turned to his family, in the<br />

public gallery, and thanked them<br />

for their kindness, stating it was<br />

an “honour and a blessing” to<br />

have their support.<br />

Judge Crosbie outlined the<br />

woman’s victim impact statement,<br />

which said her spirit had<br />

not been broken despite the<br />

attack.<br />

She said while the emotional<br />

scars of what happened may<br />

diminish, she can’t forget the way<br />

Meredith spoke to her or what<br />

she saw in his eyes the day he attacked<br />

her.<br />

“She believed you were intent<br />

on humiliating her. Sounds and<br />

smells trigger her,” the judge said.<br />

Council projects could be axed<br />

in LTP: ‘We can’t deliver it all’<br />

PROPOSAL: The draft<br />

Long Term Plan includes up to<br />

$19.24 million for a community<br />

centre library in Leeston.<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

SOME COUNCIL projects<br />

earmarked to be completed in<br />

the next <strong>10</strong> years may not go<br />

ahead.<br />

It includes capital<br />

projects, such as water and<br />

sewage infrastructure,<br />

roading and cycleways,<br />

and community facilities.<br />

As part of its draft<br />

<strong>2024</strong>-34 Long Term Plan,<br />

the council plans to spend<br />

$1.5 billion on capital<br />

projects. It will also be<br />

carrying forward $118 million<br />

of uncompleted projects from<br />

previous years.<br />

The council’s new transport<br />

and infrastructure executive<br />

director Tim Mason says the<br />

council does not have the<br />

capability or funds to afford its<br />

current works programme.<br />

Council is spending<br />

so much on capital<br />

projects that on current<br />

projections it will breach<br />

its 220 per cent debt<br />

ceiling in the 2027/28<br />

financial year.<br />

“The guts of it is we<br />

Tim can’t deliver it all and the<br />

Mason feedback that I need to<br />

be giving is we cannot do<br />

this,” Mason told the council’s<br />

transport and infrastructure<br />

committee meeting last week.<br />

THE COUNCIL’S new<br />

transport and infrastructure<br />

executive director Tim<br />

Mason may be just the person<br />

ratepayers need (page 1).<br />

His job title might be a tad<br />

fancy, but according to <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

he appears to be a no nonsense<br />

individual when it comes to<br />

making tough decisions.<br />

As ratepayers face big rates<br />

rises over the next <strong>10</strong> years,<br />

Mason, new to the job, will<br />

be running a fine-tooth comb<br />

through the council’s project<br />

list.<br />

It will mean some planned<br />

projects won’t make the cut,<br />

“You might want to do it but<br />

we don’t have the capability to<br />

deliver it, so we need realistic<br />

programming, and we need to<br />

deliver on what we say we are<br />

going to deliver.”<br />

The council has yet to put together<br />

a list of the carry-forward<br />

projects, and the $118 million is<br />

just an estimation.<br />

Projects in the draft LTP<br />

include the $45 million Lincoln<br />

town centre upgrade, up to<br />

$19.24 million for a community<br />

centre library in Leeston, and<br />

$11.28 million for an indoor<br />

sports facility in Darfield.<br />

Mason, who has worked for<br />

the council since January, brings<br />

with him more than two decades<br />

of international infrastructure<br />

experience, having held key roles<br />

with major contractors.<br />

He pointed to a previous<br />

attitude of the council accepting<br />

it could roll over projects year<br />

after year – something he said<br />

would not happen in the private<br />

sector.<br />

“There’s been a history of<br />

rolling projects forward . . . and<br />

it wouldn’t appear to me there<br />

has been too much of an issue in<br />

doing that.<br />

“Personally, coming from the<br />

private sector and programme<br />

management that would be a<br />

no-no for us. I think a big part of<br />

this is setting a clear expectation<br />

FUTURE: Projects in the council’s draft Long Term Plan<br />

include the $45 million Lincoln town centre upgrade.<br />

with the team that we don’t roll<br />

projects forward anymore.<br />

“We have got to take a position<br />

that if we put something in the<br />

Long Term Plan then we deliver<br />

on that.”<br />

As part of its work leading<br />

up to the LTP sign-off in June,<br />

the council is developing better<br />

measures to assist in delivering<br />

its capital works programme.<br />

“From my experience, there<br />

are a number of key areas you’ve<br />

got to improve for effective<br />

delivery of programmes,” Mason<br />

said.<br />

He highlighted financial<br />

reporting, procurement,<br />

capability, and supply chain<br />

relationships as the areas for<br />

improvement.<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton told<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> public submissions<br />

will help the council decide its<br />

direction.<br />

“The submissions through<br />

this Long Term Plan will<br />

highlight the key projects that<br />

are still important to be done,”<br />

Broughton said.<br />

“If there’s stuff that maybe <strong>10</strong><br />

years ago we said was a good idea<br />

but hasn’t been completed yet we<br />

need to be able to have a mature<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

MAYOR SAM Broughton has<br />

called on the Government to fix<br />

a broken rates system. But the<br />

Government says it’s up to the<br />

councils to reduce costs.<br />

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

ratepayers<br />

are facing a<br />

proposed 15.6<br />

per cent rates<br />

increase, and<br />

by 2034 the<br />

average rates<br />

bill is expected<br />

to be more than<br />

$7000.<br />

Sam<br />

Broughton<br />

Broughton, who is also chair<br />

of Local Government New<br />

Zealand, said the system needs<br />

changing.<br />

“The rates system is broken.<br />

It doesn’t take into account<br />

people’s ability to pay,” he<br />

said.<br />

Broughton said there is also<br />

an imbalance in how funding<br />

is distributed between councils<br />

and the Government.<br />

He said under the current<br />

system too much funding goes<br />

to central government, with it<br />

collecting 90 per cent of public<br />

money in New Zealand.<br />

“We are either number one<br />

or two of over-centralised<br />

countries in the OECD, which<br />

is ridiculous that we’re so<br />

Wellington focused in our<br />

provision of public services in<br />

our spending and decisionmaking.”<br />

He said the council is<br />

balancing affordability with the<br />

district’s needs.<br />

“People’s affordability and<br />

the community’s affordability<br />

are front-of-mind when we’re<br />

thinking about the cost of<br />

things.<br />

“But we also need to be a<br />

council that is responsive to<br />

the needs of our community,<br />

particularly because of growth<br />

and the desire of people to see<br />

more things done in <strong>Selwyn</strong>,”<br />

Broughton said.<br />

Broughton said returning<br />

the GST on rates and having<br />

the Government pay rates on<br />

Crown-owned land would<br />

be something that could be<br />

implemented to reduce the<br />

burden on ratepayers.<br />

“There have been questions<br />

raised about the GST on rates<br />

being returned back to council,<br />

which I think would be a really<br />

good thing.<br />

“Having that come back<br />

to councils would make a<br />

big difference to us . . . That’s<br />

the equivalent of this year’s<br />

proposed lift in rates.”<br />

broken – Broughton<br />

Local Government Minister<br />

Simeon Brown told <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

<strong>Times</strong> it was on councils to find<br />

cost savings, rather than the<br />

Government boosting funding.<br />

“Both local<br />

and central<br />

government<br />

are facing<br />

significant cost<br />

pressures due to<br />

the inflationary<br />

environment<br />

the previous<br />

government<br />

created. It is<br />

Simeon<br />

Brown<br />

important that local governments,<br />

like the central government,<br />

also look for savings in<br />

their back office, and prioritise<br />

must-haves, not nice to haves,”<br />

Brown said.<br />

Brown said changing current<br />

funding models was not on the<br />

cards.<br />

“It has been a longstanding<br />

policy to exempt central<br />

government buildings such<br />

as schools and hospitals from<br />

paying rates, and this is not<br />

something the Government is<br />

planning on changing.”<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Labour spokesperson<br />

Luke Jones said the recently<br />

scrapped Three Waters policy<br />

would have taken a significant<br />

burden off councils.<br />

“It’s all well in good to use<br />

HIGHER COST: By 2034 the average rates bill is expected<br />

to be over $7000.<br />

the previous government as a<br />

punching bag when things get a<br />

bit tricky,” Jones said.<br />

“There were policy initiatives<br />

put forward by the previous<br />

government such as the Three<br />

Waters reforms that would<br />

have directly reduced rates that<br />

were paid at a local government<br />

level.”<br />

Canterbury Age Concern chief<br />

executive Greta Bond said any<br />

increase in rates would particularly<br />

impact those on fixed incomes,<br />

such as superannuation.<br />

Since <strong>April</strong> 1, a single person<br />

on superannuation receives<br />

$578.67 and a couple receives<br />

$439.79 each per week.<br />

Bond said while rates can be<br />

budgeted for, any increase impacts<br />

people’s ability to afford<br />

things like doctors appointments<br />

or groceries.<br />

“That’s a big chunk of money.<br />

It will be an expected chunk<br />

that they will have to pay, but<br />

it’s the unexpected expenses<br />

that can really hurt them,”<br />

Bond said.<br />

Prebbleton Community Association<br />

president Jane Elms<br />

was also concerned about the<br />

increases.<br />

“I understand prices are increasing<br />

but I think it will be a<br />

struggle for a lot of people.”<br />

Elms said a key issue for<br />

the association was a new<br />

community hall, with the<br />

current one not meeting<br />

earthquake standards.<br />

LATEST FINANCIAL numbers<br />

show the council has overspent<br />

by $1 million in its personnel<br />

costs during a restructuring.<br />

Council chief<br />

executive Sharon<br />

Mason said the<br />

overspend was<br />

due to a council<br />

restructure over<br />

the 2021/22<br />

and 2022/23<br />

financial years.<br />

“Council<br />

undertook<br />

an assessment of whether the<br />

organisation had the appropriate<br />

structure and resources in<br />

place to meet the community’s<br />

expectations and the increasing<br />

workload of supporting a<br />

growing population, along<br />

with additional legislative and<br />

regulatory requirements that all<br />

councils are facing,” she said.<br />

Mason said through the<br />

restructure 63 new roles<br />

were created and four were<br />

disestablished.<br />

“The overspend in staff costs<br />

was related to not factoring in<br />

additional technology costs<br />

and inflation, which has been a<br />

significant factor affecting all organisations<br />

across New Zealand.”<br />

Springs Ward councillor Grant<br />

Miller said any overspending is<br />

concerning when rates are forecast<br />

to increase by 15.6 per cent.<br />

He said when a project blows<br />

out, rates are impacted.<br />

While $1 million may seem<br />

small in the overall budget, it<br />

takes a lot of rating units to make<br />

up $1 million, he said.<br />

“I’m not espousing paying our<br />

staff peanuts because if you’ve<br />

got quality staff you pay them appropriately,<br />

what I am espousing<br />

is you don’t employ staff unless<br />

they are absolutely required and<br />

you’ve assessed other options for<br />

delivering the service.”<br />

Miller said any cost-cutting<br />

measures that can be taken<br />

should be, whether in operating<br />

expenditures like staff costs or in<br />

capital projects.<br />

“Once you bring opex (operating<br />

expenditure) into the budget<br />

it stays there generally . . . You’re<br />

better not to spend it first rather<br />

than try and cut.”<br />

Mason said <strong>Selwyn</strong> still has<br />

significantly less staff per head of<br />

population, compared to other<br />

councils serving a similar population.<br />

Between June 2019 and June<br />

last year the number of people<br />

employed by the council has<br />

risen from 468 to 586.<br />

Lincoln development appeal dropped<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

A BID to stop a large Carter<br />

Group housing development has<br />

come to an end.<br />

The Carter Group plans to<br />

develop space for 17<strong>10</strong> homes as<br />

part of its Lincoln South subdivision.<br />

It can now forge ahead with<br />

its plan after advocacy group<br />

Lincoln Voice<br />

dropped its<br />

appeal with the<br />

Environment<br />

Court.<br />

The group’s<br />

hopes were<br />

mostly dashed<br />

in August when<br />

council signed<br />

off on its District<br />

Plan.<br />

Denise<br />

Carrick<br />

Until the plan was signed off<br />

Lincoln Voice had an appeal<br />

lodged with the Environment<br />

Court against the subdivision<br />

under plan change 69, which<br />

was a separate process from the<br />

District Plan.<br />

However, the subdivision land<br />

was rezoned as part of the District<br />

Plan, making the appeal void.<br />

Because Lincoln Voice did not<br />

submit to the District Plan it was<br />

unable to appeal it.<br />

Until it was officially withdrawn<br />

last week the Environment<br />

Court appeal was on hold.<br />

Lincoln Voice spokesperson<br />

Denise Carrick said it was disappointing<br />

to have to drop the<br />

appeal.<br />

“In light of the circumstances<br />

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

decided to rezone the land<br />

for PC69 themselves, and the<br />

new Government opening up<br />

fast-tracking of greenfield consents,<br />

we have had to make the<br />

decision to withdraw our appeal<br />

against the PC69 development,”<br />

Carrick said.<br />

Lincoln Voice has also decided<br />

it will no longer push for a judicial<br />

review of the district council process<br />

used to sign off the District<br />

Plan.<br />

Carrick said the group had engaged<br />

a barrister who said while<br />

there could be potential grounds<br />

for the review it would come at<br />

too high a cost.<br />

The group had been fundraising<br />

for its Environment Court<br />

appeal and Carrick said any remaining<br />

funds will likely be given<br />

to the Environmental Defence Society<br />

which had helped the group<br />

with its appeal.<br />

Tim Carter of the Carter Group<br />

could not tell <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> its<br />

timeline for the development.<br />

“We are still working through<br />

our plans for the Lincoln development,<br />

“ Carter said.<br />

Military museum proposal seeks council<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

BURNHAM’S military museum<br />

could be moved to Rolleston –<br />

but it would come with a very<br />

expensive price tag.<br />

The Regimental History<br />

Association is seeking council<br />

backing to build a world-class<br />

museum, the Charles Upham<br />

Centre, in Rolleston.<br />

The association said it has been<br />

collecting artefacts for more than<br />

50 years.<br />

The collection is currently<br />

housed at Burnham Military<br />

Camp, but association president<br />

Wayne Hutchinson said public<br />

access is restricted.<br />

It has a comprehensive collection<br />

of South Island soldiers’<br />

memorabilia, with some prized<br />

and very valuable. There are<br />

seven Victoria Crosses in the<br />

collection, including the medals<br />

of Lincoln-born Henry James<br />

Nicholas VC, MM (Military<br />

Medal) and Charles Upham VC.<br />

There is also a musical drum that<br />

was used to carry shell dressings<br />

at Gallipoli.<br />

It also has a library of military<br />

books, pictures, videos and discs<br />

with interview files of past soldiers,<br />

invaluable to researchers.<br />

The association envisages<br />

building a museum with creative,<br />

immersive experiences designed<br />

with the audience at the<br />

core. But it will come at a cost.<br />

The association wants to model<br />

it on the National Anzac Centre<br />

in Albany, Western Australia.<br />

That centre cost $<strong>10</strong>.6 million<br />

to build in 2014 and was fully<br />

funded by the federal and Western<br />

Australian governments.<br />

Hutchinson said while there<br />

has been little done in the financial<br />

space to date, $<strong>10</strong> million<br />

would be the minimum for the<br />

project.<br />

Last week the plan was discussed<br />

at the council’s community<br />

services committee meeting.<br />

Council community services<br />

and facilities executive director<br />

Denise Kidd said it is considering<br />

conducting a feasibility study<br />

into the museum, which would<br />

be done internally and not require<br />

any budget allocated to it.<br />

“We are not asking for any<br />

money within the LTP (Long<br />

Term Plan) budget for this<br />

piece of work. If it was to be<br />

undertaken it would be done<br />

within the work programme<br />

of staff as they are able to or we<br />

would pursue external sources<br />

of funding,” Kidd told<br />

councillors.<br />

DREAM: The Regimental History Association president<br />

Wayne Hutchinson with the musical drum used to carry<br />

shell dressings at Gallipoli. The association’s collection also<br />

includes the Victoria Cross and Bar of Charles Upham.<br />

Kidd said it would offer no<br />

guarantee council would provide<br />

any funding to the project.<br />

It comes as the council is looking<br />

at what projects may be cut<br />

from its Long<br />

Term Plan.<br />

Concerns<br />

were raised by<br />

councillors over<br />

council staff<br />

conducting the<br />

feasibility study,<br />

McInnes<br />

with the proposed<br />

rates hike<br />

of 15.6 per cent<br />

“I’m worried this will be another<br />

feasibility study that informs but<br />

goes nowhere and loses impact somewhere<br />

else in the community,” McInnes said.<br />

The association and New Zealand<br />

Defence Force personnel met with council<br />

chief executive Sharon Mason at the end<br />

of last year, outlining the plan.<br />

The association intends to submit to<br />

the council’s <strong>2024</strong>-34 Long Term Plan.<br />

Submissions close on May 2.<br />

Hutchinson said the association’s<br />

proposal will seek to establish a trust in<br />

partnership with the council and other<br />

stakeholders.<br />

The association also will ask the council<br />

to reserve a site in Rolleston for the centre,<br />

and for council participation in the<br />

development of the project charter and the<br />

concept plan development.<br />

NZDF 2nd and 4th battalion<br />

commanding officer Lieutenant Colonel<br />

Gareth Seeds, who is based at Burnham,<br />

said the NZDF has had a close, positive<br />

relationship with <strong>Selwyn</strong> District and<br />

Rolleston.<br />

“Any district military museum should<br />

reflect the service of personnel based<br />

at Burnham over its history, and the<br />

contribution of families as well.<br />

“The museum should also educate about<br />

the history of the range of units that have<br />

called Burnham home over the camp’s<br />

history,” Seeds said.<br />

Environment<br />

Canterbury Chair<br />

Peter Scott<br />

You would have recently been seeing<br />

and hearing a lot about Canterbury<br />

Regional Council’s (Environment<br />

Canterbury’s) Long-Term Plan.<br />

Put simply, this is our Council’s<br />

budgeting process. This includes the<br />

money we get from ratepayers and what<br />

we do with it.<br />

If that isn’t enough to get you<br />

interested, consider the following points.<br />

If part of a key road was taken out by<br />

a flood in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> district, would you<br />

feel the impact?<br />

Do you ever worry about the effect<br />

climate change is having on our<br />

landscape?<br />

Do you think more could be done to<br />

protect the habitats of precious species?<br />

The work we do affects all Cantabrians.<br />

Essentially, we’re having to weigh up<br />

the cost of taking action, against the cost<br />

of not doing enough around things like<br />

river and erosion resilience, biodiversity<br />

outcomes and pest management.<br />

We’ve developed some options which<br />

are laid out in our Long-Term Plan<br />

consultation document, titled What’s the<br />

cost to Waitaha/Canterbury?<br />

I urge you to have a look, then tell us<br />

sees heavy fines<br />

issued for piggery<br />

A BANKSIDE piggery has been fined<br />

$29,000 for a breach of its resource consent.<br />

PIC New Zealand Ltd was convicted in<br />

the Christchurch District Court on one<br />

charge of discharging piggery effluent from<br />

a travelling irrigator onto land which may<br />

have resulted in the contaminant entering<br />

water on its Mitchells Rd farm.<br />

In August 2022, an Environment<br />

Canterbury compliance officer observed<br />

a travelling irrigator discharging effluent<br />

onto bare land which was saturated with<br />

rainwater.<br />

The discharge caused significant<br />

effluent ponding running the length of the<br />

paddock behind the travelling irrigator.<br />

At the time the company had about<br />

11,000 pigs on the farm. PIC is owned by<br />

SunPork Ltd, a large corporate farmer with<br />

operations in Australia and New Zealand.<br />

The company operates 56 farms, eight of<br />

which are in New Zealand.<br />

Allowing ponding to occur is a breach<br />

of the company’s resource consent, specifically<br />

the condition stating discharges must<br />

be managed in such a way that effluent<br />

ponding does not occur.<br />

ECan zone delivery lead Gillian Jenkins<br />

said since the incident, the company has<br />

taken steps to ensure it does not happen<br />

again.<br />

It has begun trucking effluent off-site, is<br />

using a revised management plan, and has<br />

installed a Hi-Lo monitoring system on its<br />

effluent tank.<br />

“Ponding of effluent as bad as this and<br />

the potential leaching of contaminants<br />

to groundwater in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> area is<br />

unacceptable,” Jenkins said.<br />

“We are really pleased to see the steps<br />

that PIC is taking towards improving<br />

compliance at the site and we’re working<br />

closely with them to ensure a problem like<br />

this doesn’t happen again.”<br />

Pig effluent has higher quantities of<br />

nitrogen and ammonia compared to<br />

dairy effluent which makes it especially<br />

important to manage effluent application.<br />

Jenkins said it’s important farms plan<br />

ahead for wet conditions to prevent<br />

ponding.<br />

“Even though this particular incident<br />

happened during a really wet event, the<br />

court ultimately decided that farms need<br />

to do better at managing their effluent in<br />

all conditions.<br />

“All farms need to have up to date<br />

management plans that allow for climate<br />

change. Staff training and farming<br />

practices need to be adequate to respond<br />

to wet events like this as they will only<br />

increase in the future.”<br />

LETTERS 17<br />

Labour reacts to Grigg’s comments<br />

STUDENTS, parents, teachers,<br />

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

deserve better than the political<br />

squabbling that has ensued over<br />

the Rolleston College funding<br />

cuts in recent weeks. We need to<br />

set the record straight and allow<br />

facts to prevail.<br />

The Labour cabinet approved<br />

and provided initial funding<br />

for the expansion of four public<br />

private partnership schools<br />

within Budget 2020 (CAB-20-<br />

MIN-0155.12), one of which<br />

was Rolleston College. The<br />

Government then approved<br />

additional operating expenditure<br />

to fund the expansion of<br />

Rolleston College in Budget 22;<br />

details to this effect are in the<br />

same cabinet paper.<br />

These funding commitments<br />

were not fantasy, they were set<br />

aside and dedicated to boosting<br />

school property in areas like<br />

Rolleston where our current<br />

classrooms are already above<br />

capacity.<br />

The truth is, Rolleston needs<br />

leadership at this moment and<br />

Nicola Grigg needs to step up to<br />

the mark.<br />

For her to say the new<br />

Government has not ordered<br />

this cut is extremely misleading<br />

because they are absolutely<br />

involved. The people of <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

deserve better than being fed<br />

these poorly fabricated talking<br />

points.<br />

If so-called “wasteful<br />

spending” alone was enough to<br />

pay for the tax cut agenda (as<br />

promised during the campaign),<br />

then why is our school’s<br />

desperately needed classroom<br />

infrastructure being rolled back<br />

and funding restricted by this<br />

new government?<br />

I was at the public meeting<br />

hosted by Rolleston College<br />

– and heard the community<br />

demanding answers to exactly<br />

the same question.<br />

Nicola Grigg needs to stop<br />

falsely blaming the previous<br />

government and show she can<br />

represent <strong>Selwyn</strong> at a time when<br />

it really matters … and there is<br />

no time like the present.<br />

Does this cut to Rolleston<br />

College upset you? Then tell<br />

your MP and education minster<br />

how you feel. It doesn’t matter<br />

whether you voted National,<br />

Labour, Act, or Greens – what<br />

matters is that you make your<br />

voice heard.<br />

– Luke Jones<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Labour spokesman<br />

My employee in Wellington<br />

Nicola Grigg reminds me of the<br />

adage describing a politician<br />

as a person who shakes “your<br />

hand before an election and your<br />

confidence after it”.<br />

Ms Grigg certainly talked<br />

a big game through my letter<br />

box and the local rags prior to<br />

the election! Now not so much.<br />

Her lack of strong advocacy for<br />

Rolleston College she blames on<br />

the Labour government and the<br />

birth of her first child. Lame is<br />

the most polite printable word I<br />

BLAME GAME: Labour has refuted claims by <strong>Selwyn</strong> MP Nicola Grigg it is to blame for the<br />

Rolleston College funding cuts.<br />

can think of.<br />

However there has to be a plus<br />

and it is my fond hope that Ms<br />

Grigg increases her empathy<br />

with all parents especially those<br />

low paid workers who clean her<br />

parliamentary office yet get a<br />

pittance from her Government’s<br />

ill conceived tax cuts.<br />

– John Summers<br />

Southbridge<br />

I speak as a retired person<br />

living in Lincoln. We seem<br />

to be in an era where council<br />

just want to spend money and<br />

increase our rates to help fund it.<br />

I think council needs to exercise<br />

restraint and tighten its belt.<br />

Sometimes, I think the council<br />

reckons we have buckets full of<br />

money to hand over to them for<br />

projects that are not urgent.<br />

– James Gould<br />

I have been reading with<br />

interest that our council<br />

has asked for ways to prune<br />

unnecessary expenditure. But<br />

will they listen?<br />

I see that they are proceeding,<br />

despite being advised it is a<br />

colossal waste of money, in<br />

sealing Perrymans Rd (Tai<br />

Tapu) and then closing it to<br />

through traffic. This section of<br />

road services two properties.<br />

Closing the road will reduce the<br />

dust problem but why also seal<br />

it? The money saved on sealing,<br />

estimated to be over $300k,<br />

could be used to reduce rates or<br />

be spent fixing potholes.<br />

The council cannot see the<br />

wood for the trees which is why<br />

our rates are so high. As I have<br />

said before, a very expensive<br />

driveway paid for by ratepayers.<br />

– Kerrie Busby<br />

The council firstly needs to<br />

look at trimming some staff. We<br />

also don’t need another park to<br />

plant and walk dogs.<br />

As for what Mr Lyall said, and<br />

I quote “perhaps we have been<br />

too kind in the last few years<br />

with low rate raises” should<br />

that be too silly to predict what<br />

was happening in <strong>Selwyn</strong> even<br />

though this is what we are paid<br />

for? One would of thought<br />

that growth in the area brings<br />

in more rate payments thus<br />

spreading the load.<br />

– Will Janssen<br />

The situation we find ourselves<br />

in arises from past spending,<br />

so finding savings now is difficult.<br />

Just one example of past<br />

extravagance is the investment<br />

in a fine building we were told<br />

was a library.<br />

– Les Wade<br />

Rolleston<br />

Illegal dumping<br />

Council executive director of<br />

infrastructure and property, Tim<br />

Mason, took a rather one-eyed<br />

view of illegal rubbish dumping<br />

in your March 27 article on the<br />

topic.<br />

Although seeing rubbish<br />

discarded along our roadways is<br />

an irritation to most ratepayers,<br />

there is a bit of logic as to why<br />

that happens and it is caused<br />

directly by the council.<br />

They once offered a yearly<br />

spring cleaning service where<br />

one could put out anything<br />

and they’d take it away for free<br />

- no more. Couple that with<br />

the prohibitive costs of taking<br />

that same rubbish to the Pine<br />

Resource Recovery Parks (PRRP)<br />

as general waste and it actually<br />

makes sense as to why the<br />

problem happens.<br />

These days many people are<br />

struggling with their finances,<br />

particularly lower income<br />

families but middle income<br />

families too. Measure food<br />

costs against PRRP costs and<br />

the decision becomes starkly<br />

obvious – feed the kids OR take<br />

the rubbish to PRRP not both.<br />

Naturally, the kids get fed and<br />

the rubbish goes off to some out<br />

of the way roadside.<br />

Bring back that yearly service<br />

or perhaps have a monthly or<br />

quarterly free day at PRRP for<br />

general waste and it is a safe<br />

bet the ugly problem along our<br />

roadsides will significantly lessen<br />

or disappear entirely. Hey, what<br />

about a coupon in the rates<br />

envelope to allow a ratepayer to<br />

go to PRRP for free when they<br />

need to? That $3<strong>10</strong>,000 expense<br />

might be wiped clean with littleto-no<br />

offsetting cost.<br />

Why not at least give it a try?<br />

Ah, the heck with it – raise the<br />

rates, increase the infrastructure,<br />

boost the number of council<br />

employees, and blame the people.<br />

Typical politics at it’s finest.<br />

– Jerry Larason<br />

Flood protection<br />

It comes as a shock that the<br />

council that says it has no money<br />

for flood protection for Hororata,<br />

can spend money on digger hire<br />

to clear the old Hororata dump<br />

site.<br />

While they were doing this,<br />

they totally ignored a willow<br />

lying across the river. The edge of<br />

the dump site is stable and would<br />

be totally secure if the council<br />

did the essential maintenance<br />

work in the river to protect<br />

Hororata from flooding. For the<br />

last two years, the council stated<br />

they could not do any work in<br />

the river as it was flowing. Right<br />

now the river is dry, so why is no<br />

work being done in the river?<br />

– Mike Davies<br />

Staying informed<br />

The subject of good solid news<br />

for the community came up<br />

in conversation recently and<br />

the importance of it. It has the<br />

effect of causing debate, people<br />

become interested in what is<br />

happening in the community,<br />

which is healthy.<br />

There is a huge change<br />

happening, some good. <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

<strong>Times</strong> has become a vital vector<br />

for information people are<br />

becoming reliant on it.<br />

I now find I leave it on the<br />

table and refer back to items,<br />

which are interesting, also the<br />

advertiser is getting better value.<br />

– Colin Giddens<br />

DUMPED: A reader says the council is partially responsible for the problem of illegal<br />

dumping in the district.

Miss Canty’s focus on community<br />

Paige Sullivan was<br />

recently crowned Miss<br />

Canterbury. Reporter<br />

Sasha Watson spoke<br />

with the community<br />

advocate about her<br />

motivations<br />

BEYOND physical appearance,<br />

the Miss Canterbury pageant<br />

emphasises values such as<br />

leadership, community service<br />

and advocacy.<br />

That’s why Paige Sullivan, this<br />

year’s winner, said the pageant<br />

perfectly aligned with her.<br />

Sullivan is a lawyer who will be<br />

admitted to the bar in June,<br />

and a trustee of many charities<br />

and organisations.<br />

“Working in the community<br />

started as a hobby but it’s my life<br />

now,” the 23-year-old said.<br />

She is a trustee and secretary<br />

of the Empowerment Trust New<br />

Zealand, which works to prevent<br />

violence with a skills-based approach.<br />

She is also a trustee and committee<br />

chair of Te Tahi Youth,<br />

which provides free support to<br />

youth, from health to counselling<br />

to employment support and<br />

coaching.<br />

“I am also a trustee for Arts<br />

Access Aotearoa, which advocates<br />

for artists in prison, disability and<br />

mental health communities,” Sullivan<br />

said.<br />

As part of Miss Canterbury,<br />

she hosted a fashion show, raising<br />

$9000 for the I Am Hope charity,<br />

which provides youth with mental<br />

health support.<br />

Sullivan grew up in Rolleston.<br />

Her parents, Gabrielle and<br />

Matthew were involved in Lincoln<br />

Rotary; Sullivan joined the club<br />

when she was 11-years-old and<br />

became its youngest president in<br />

June 2022 (until July 2023).<br />

She moved to Halswell in mid-<br />

2022 with her partner and best<br />

friend, Will Poultney, an IT senior<br />

workspace engineer.<br />

She will graduate from Canterbury<br />

University with a degree in<br />

law – commercial, property and<br />

lifelaw – alongside a degree in<br />

commerce.<br />

“I’ve been working in law at<br />

Lane Neave in the city centre for<br />

about a year and a half.<br />

“When I was younger, I used to<br />

argue with my parents a lot<br />

. . . I also really enjoy getting my<br />

point across, so it’s the right career<br />

choice,” she said.<br />

The Miss Canterbury<br />

competition was Sullivan’s first<br />

time in a pageant; she said it was<br />

opposite to what she thought it<br />

would be.<br />

FAMILY: Paige Sullivan<br />

with dad Matthew and<br />

mum Gabrielle at the<br />

Miss Canterbury crowning<br />

ceremony. Right – with<br />

partner Will Poultney.<br />

“I grew up watching Miss<br />

Universe and Miss World so I did<br />

think Miss Canterbury would<br />

be as stereotypical and based on<br />

looks.<br />

“It’s focused more on charity<br />

and community, something<br />

I’m already very passionate about.<br />

“My nana, who died from<br />

cancer in 2013, and her sister<br />

also competed in the pageant in<br />

the 1950s. I signed up in their<br />

memory.”<br />

Sullivan’s grandmother, Dianna<br />

McFarlane, won the competition<br />

in 1958.<br />

Sullivan also wanted to do the<br />

pageant for herself.<br />

“I was looking for a way to boost<br />

my confidence and build myself<br />

up as a lot of what I do is for other<br />

people. I grew a lot as a person.<br />

“The most important thing was<br />

being true to myself and<br />

not doing anything that I wouldn’t<br />

normally do just for the points.<br />

“The biggest compliment I received<br />

was from a friend who was<br />

following my Miss Canterbury<br />

Facebook page. She said all of my<br />

posts sounded like me.”<br />

Sullivan also won Charity<br />

Queen, Miss Positivity and best<br />

in interview during the crowning<br />

ceremony on March 17.<br />

She’s looking forward to competing<br />

in Miss New Zealand next<br />

year and then representing the<br />

country at an international pageant,<br />

which will likely be in Egypt<br />

or China.<br />

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

More than <strong>10</strong>00<br />

trees were put in<br />

the ground at a<br />

community planting<br />

day in Coalgate at<br />

the weekend.<br />

Said Malvern<br />

Ward councillor<br />

Lydia Gliddon: “It’s<br />

the kind of stuff<br />

that makes your<br />

heart full when you<br />

see a community<br />

come together for a<br />

common goal.”<br />

About 40 people<br />

helped out.<br />

The day was<br />

a collaboration<br />

between the<br />

council, mining<br />

company Bathurst<br />

Resources and the<br />

Coalgate Residents<br />

Committee.<br />

Gliddon said<br />

the plants were<br />

donated by Bathurst<br />

Resources and were<br />

sourced from Bush<br />

Gully or Tara Stream.<br />

“The Bathurst<br />

team sourced seeds,<br />

germinated and<br />

have grown many<br />

plants. We are so<br />

grateful, not only for<br />

the donation plants<br />

but for the team<br />

who came and<br />

helped put them in<br />

the ground.”<br />

LAYBY WELCOME<br />

The Christian Education Network<br />

Working together for the good<br />

of students and families has been a<br />

successful recipe for Christian Integrated<br />

Schools in Christchurch.<br />

The Christian Education Network<br />

has been in existence for over ten<br />

years. Aidanfield Christian School,<br />

Emmanuel Christian School, Hillview<br />

Christian School, and Middleton<br />

Grange School decided in 2005 that<br />

there was much to be gained by working<br />

together cooperatively. They recognised<br />

opportunities to share successful teaching<br />

practice, curriculum development<br />

initiatives across a wide spectrum of<br />

school operations as well as cooperatively<br />

strengthening their special Christian<br />

Character. They recognised that their<br />

ability to serve students and families was<br />

greatly enhanced by working together in<br />

a close and trusting relationship.<br />

The success of the network has seen<br />

other schools wanting to join in. Early<br />

in the piece Rangiora New Life School<br />

became part of the network. The schools<br />

joined together to support the genesis<br />

of Ashburton Christian School and<br />

also culminated in with the opening of<br />

Rolleston Christian School in 2015.<br />

The schools have developed<br />

interlocking enrolment schemes which<br />

assists in providing transparent pathways<br />

in Christian education from new entrant<br />

through to Year 13.<br />

A further strength has been a<br />

cooperative engagement with the<br />

Ministry of Education who have been<br />

pivotal in assisting the network’s<br />

successful development.<br />

Anzac Day Services<br />

Anzac Day commemoration services will be<br />

held at the following locations on Thursday<br />

25 <strong>April</strong> to remember the sacrifices of<br />

our servicemen and women. Services are<br />

organised by local Returned and Services<br />

Associations or community groups.<br />

Have a say on Your Future <strong>Selwyn</strong> – Waihora Whata Rau<br />

One of the big decisions we are seeking community<br />

feedback on in our Long-Term Plan <strong>2024</strong>-2034 is<br />

the Waihora Whata Rau project in Ellesmere.<br />

Three years ago, the Council agreed to build a<br />

new library, council service centre and community<br />

facility at Leeston, which has been gifted the name,<br />

Whata Rau. We also agreed to carry out landscape<br />

improvements to Leeston Park, next door to where the<br />

new facility would be built. Together, the two projects<br />

form Waihora Whata Rau.<br />

We’re asking for residents’ feedback on four potential<br />

options to deliver Whata Rau (Big Decision 2a), and<br />

three options for the Leeston Park improvements<br />

(Big Decision 2b).<br />

Road Works Updates<br />

Shands Road Intersections and<br />

Trents Road Upgrade<br />

In addition to the existing traffic management,<br />

the following changes will take place from<br />

Monday 15 <strong>April</strong>.<br />

Shands Road Moving to One-Way<br />

For approximately 4 weeks, Shands Road between<br />

Hamptons Road and Blakes Road will be one-way<br />

heading north towards Hornby. Detours will be in<br />

place down Blakes Road for southbound traffic<br />

(heading away from Hornby).<br />

Trents Road (East) One-Way Extension<br />

For approximately 2 weeks, the current one-way<br />

traffic management system on Trents Road (east)<br />

will be extended to run further down Trents Road<br />

towards Edwin Trent Drive. As a result, Farthing<br />

Drive at the intersection with Trents Road will be<br />

closed during this time.<br />

Trents Road (West) Moving to One-Way<br />

For approximately 4 weeks, Trents Road (west) at<br />

the intersection with Shands Road will be moving<br />

one-way, with no entry onto Shands Road.<br />

For further information and maps of the<br />

affected areas please visit selwyn.govt.nz/<br />

shandsroundabouts<br />

These options are, building Whata Rau as planned;<br />

including more, or less in the building; or not building<br />

the facility at all. By not building the new facility,<br />

significant repairs would needed for the existing<br />

Leeston Library and Council Service Centre so that it<br />

can be used for limited period of time.<br />

Options for Leeston Park include carrying out the<br />

work that had been agreed to; doing the full work<br />

contained in the new Master Plan; or not carrying out<br />

the improvements at all.<br />

To read more and make a submission, head to<br />

selwyn.govt.nz/ltp. Submissions are welcome<br />

until 5pm, Thursday 2 May <strong>2024</strong>.<br />

Springston Rolleston Road<br />

Road works are being carried out on Springston<br />

Rolleston Road between Lowes Road and<br />

Broadlands Drive to install a new watermain.<br />

From 13-17 <strong>April</strong>, Springston Rolleston Road will be<br />

closed, with a detour in place via Lowes Road and<br />

Broadlands Drive.<br />

From 18-27 <strong>April</strong>, Springston Rolleston Road will<br />

Public consultation on<br />

the Fire and Emergency levy<br />

for 2026—2029<br />

Fire and Emergency New Zealand has opened public consultation<br />

on our proposed levies for the period 1 July 2026—30 June 2029.<br />

Fire and Emergency is funded almost entirely through levies on eligible<br />

insurance policies. When the Fire and Emergency New Zealand Act 2017 came<br />

into effect a transitional levy funded the new organisation until the new levy<br />

arrangements, under Part 3 of the Act, could be brought in. The new levy will<br />

take effect on 1 July 2026.<br />

Before introducing the new levy arrangements, we are required to consult on the<br />

proposed levies and the activities we plan to undertake during the levy period.<br />

To support consultation on the levy arrangements for the period<br />

1 July 2026—30 June 2029, a discussion document on our website sets out:<br />

• the activities we propose to undertake over the levy period and the<br />

estimated costs of delivering these activities,<br />

• our proposed levy rates, and<br />

• the assumptions we have made in estimating our costs and the steps<br />

involved calculating the proposed levy rates.<br />

Prebbleton victorious in nail-biter<br />

EXPERIENCE: Crusader and All Black Joe Moody turned<br />

out for home club Lincoln on Saturday.<br />

PHOTOS: GRAEME TILTMAN ​<br />

• By Sam Coughlan<br />

PREBBLETON’S winning start<br />

to their Coleman Shield defence<br />

has continued, despite being<br />

made to work for victory at home<br />

against Lincoln on Saturday.<br />

The Penguins got up 11-<strong>10</strong> in a<br />

match that doubled as their combined<br />

country opener, and head<br />

coach Simon Fitzgerald said they<br />

were glad to come away with a<br />

win in a nail-biter.<br />

“It went down to the wire,<br />

a last-minute goal line stand<br />

defensively, where we were able<br />

to turn it over, because they were<br />

mauling on our try line, and<br />

then shortly after that, clear it off<br />

the field,” he said.<br />

Prebbleton make the trip to<br />

Southbrook this weekend to take<br />

on Saracens, who went down to<br />

Oxford in a Luisetti Seeds combined<br />

country clash.<br />

But Fitzgerald said they would<br />

provide a good test.<br />

“They’re always a strong side,<br />

they bring a lot of physicality<br />

and contact. And it’ll be another<br />

tough battle for us.”<br />

Saracens beat Prebbleton on<br />

their own turf last season, but<br />

Fitzgerald said the team wouldn’t<br />

focus on any sort of revenge.<br />

“We’re just focusing on game<br />

by game, week to week.<br />

“Like any other game, we want<br />

to go out and put a performance<br />

in, get the win, and keep developing.”<br />

He said the team had been<br />

working together well to develop<br />

combinations early in the season.<br />

“As the new guys have more<br />

time in the saddle, they’ll just<br />

continue to grow in confidence,<br />

but so will everybody else.<br />

“So we just have to make sure<br />

that we’re getting out to training<br />

and nailing our detail and<br />

continuing to not just create<br />

chances, but take chances now.<br />

“Otherwise it’s going to come<br />

back to bite us at some point.”<br />

Lincoln’s side featured Crusaders and<br />

All Black prop Joe Moody, playing his<br />

first game of the season for Lincoln with<br />

the Crusaders having a bye.<br />

Fitzgerald said playing against someone<br />

of his class was “fantastic”.<br />

“Credit to Joe for coming and playing<br />

club footy.<br />

“Our fellas really enjoyed playing<br />

against him, particularly in the scrum,<br />

where we were able to assert a bit of<br />

dominance, so that’s filled our front<br />

rowers with confidence moving<br />

forward.”<br />

Darfield were the only other Ellesmere<br />

side to win in the combined competition<br />

at the weekend, beating Woodend 45-13.<br />

This weekend they host Rakaia at<br />

Darfield Domain.<br />

There are two Coleman Shield clashes<br />

Winless Hornby, who have scored<br />

just three points and leaked 86 in their<br />

opening two games, take on Lincoln at<br />

their first win of the season.<br />

Springston host Waihora with both<br />

sides coming off losses at the weekend,<br />

Springston going down 31-8 to Kaiapoi<br />

and Waihora losing on home turf against<br />

Ashley, 26-23.<br />

Southbridge suffered an agonising<br />

30-29 loss to Ohoka and will hope for a<br />

better result when they take on Kaiapoi at<br />

Tai Tapu bowlers defend champion titles<br />

• By Sam Coughlan<br />

THE TAI TAPU Bowling Club<br />

says winning two Ellesmere<br />

champion of champions titles<br />

at the weekend is a special<br />

achievement – more so for two of<br />

its veteran bowlers.<br />

Heather Murdoch was the<br />

skipper of the women’s triples<br />

team, alongside Gill Bolderston<br />

and Marina Russell, who took<br />

out the competition on Sunday<br />

at Southbridge, beating Leeston’s<br />

Wendy Toohey (skip), Polly<br />

Middleton and Marie Carrodous<br />

21-14 in the final to defend the<br />

trophy they won last year.<br />

For Bolderston, it was one<br />

step better than she managed in<br />

the singles final two weeks ago,<br />

when she lost to Leeston’s Valmai<br />

Hantz 21-16.<br />

Tai Tapu also defended their<br />

title in the men’s pair event<br />

on Saturday, with the team of<br />

Peter Udy (skip) and Tim Pavey<br />

victorious in the final against<br />

Dunsandel, winning 14-12.<br />

It was Murdoch’s 12th<br />

Ellesmere title but she didn’t get<br />

off to the best of starts in the<br />

opening round against Diamond<br />

Harbour in a 14-12 victory.<br />

“If you’d seen me play in the<br />

first game, you wouldn’t have<br />

thought we were going to get<br />

anywhere,” she said.<br />

“They (Bolderston and Russell)<br />

were brilliant, but I didn’t do<br />

anything very much in that first<br />

game.<br />

“They carried me. And then I<br />

just decided it was time to take<br />

the jersey off and get down to it.”<br />

Murdoch, who is also the<br />

match convener for Ellesmere<br />

Bowls, said the wins were great<br />

for the club.<br />

“Winning an Ellesmere<br />

champion of champions event<br />

is great, because it’s important<br />

for Ellesmere that we keep these<br />

champion of champions events<br />

and that’s great to see.<br />

“It’s special because we’re such<br />

about 23 or 24 members so it’s<br />

very special to come back and do<br />

that.”<br />

The pair win was Udy’s 14th<br />

Ellesmere title – he was also a<br />

part of last year’s winning team<br />

but said the trophy wasn’t something<br />

he was expecting.<br />

“I was probably 70 per cent<br />

job, managing to play what I<br />

wanted to play.”

US college beckons for<br />

middle distance athlete<br />

• By Sam Coughlan<br />

SELWYN RUNNER Daniel<br />

Prescott has made the decision to<br />

accept an athletics scholarship in<br />

the United States later this year.<br />

The 18-year-old, who won<br />

the national secondary schools<br />

1500m title last year, will study<br />

at Providence College in Rhode<br />

Island after having a number of<br />

options to choose from.<br />

Angie Petty from the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Athletic Club, who coaches<br />

Prescott, said he had always<br />

wanted to go to Providence.<br />

“The head coach, Ray (Tracey),<br />

he has been one of the best<br />

coaches in the NCAA (National<br />

Collegiate Athletic Association)<br />

for years, he’s won the NCAA<br />

coach of the year multiple times.<br />

“Kiera Hall went there, who we<br />

coached, and Daniel trained with<br />

(her) until she went last year.<br />

“I think it just seems a really<br />

good fit.”<br />

Hall was coached by Petty and<br />

her husband Sam before starting<br />

at Providence last year. She<br />

placed second in both the 800m<br />

and 1500m junior girls’ races at<br />

the national championships prior<br />

to her move.<br />

A curious mind opens the door to<br />

learning something new. Whether its<br />

picking up a new hobby, flexing a dormant<br />

creative muscle, or learning a language or<br />

professional skills needed for employment<br />

or personal fulfilment, the benefits of<br />

lifelong learning are numerous.<br />

Risingholme has been developing and<br />

delivering a range of community education<br />

courses for 80 years, allowing tens of<br />

thousands of learners the opportunity to<br />

upskill, create, and learn something new.<br />

Our courses cover a range of subjects<br />

from pottery to art, fabric and wood<br />

crafts, languages, health & wellbeing and<br />

foundation courses. Although our course<br />

programme often changes in response<br />

to local needs with new courses being<br />

developed every year, some popular courses<br />

such as sewing, woodwork, and pottery<br />

have stood the test of time and have run<br />

continually since the 1940s!<br />

Part of our success as a community<br />

education organisation has been the ability<br />

to design courses that are flexible and<br />

accessible, making it easy for you to jump<br />

into learning at whatever age and stage<br />

of life you are in. We offer day and night<br />

classes across three locations city-wide. Our<br />

courses range from one-day workshops<br />

through to longer 8 week courses meaning<br />

that learning can fit around busy modern<br />

schedules.<br />

When Risingholme was gifted to<br />

the people of Christchurch in 1943 by<br />

local philanthropist J.R McKenzie, it<br />

Wednesday <strong>April</strong> <strong>10</strong> <strong>2024</strong> <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> 29<br />

was envisioned that it would become an<br />

important hub for the “health, amusement,<br />

and instruction of the public”. 80 years on,<br />

this social purpose remains at the heart<br />

of Risingholme as learning and leisure<br />

are combined in the accessible, flexible,<br />

and diverse programme of offerings we<br />

continue to run.<br />

Join us throughout the year as we<br />

celebrate our big 80th with events across<br />

the year that reflect on our history as an<br />

organisation and look forward to the<br />

future of lifelong learning in Ōtautahi<br />

Christchurch. We are partnering with local<br />

organisations to bring together exciting<br />

community events that foster connection,<br />

and highlighting the creative spirit of our<br />

learners through an upcoming showcase<br />

exhibition in term 3. Finally, we are also<br />

hosting a ‘Have a Go’ day in term 3 where<br />

you can explore some of our courses<br />

through small guided taster sessions and<br />

discover where your own curiosity might<br />

take you.

GARDENING 31<br />

Perfect time to pop in some colour<br />

• By Henri Ham<br />

AUTUMN IS the perfect time to<br />

pop some pretty colour into your<br />

garden.<br />

Flowers like polyanthus, primula<br />

and viola can easily revitalise a<br />

weary garden, and thrive in the<br />

cooler months. And planting<br />

them now, before the temperature<br />

drops, gives them time to really<br />

get established, bringing you a<br />

prolonged blooming season.<br />

Polyanthus, primula and viola<br />

are easy to grow and flourish in<br />

garden beds, as borders, or in pots.<br />

Polyanthus and voila are petite<br />

blooms (about <strong>10</strong>-15cm high),<br />

while primula has a bit more<br />

height (30cm) – ideal for planting<br />

in behind smaller plants, for a<br />

fuller garden effect.<br />

Primula comes in several shades<br />

of pink, red, white and mixed.<br />

It’s a dainty flower, and when<br />

picked makes a cute winter posy<br />

VIVID: Primula lavender is a dainty flower, also available in<br />

many other colours.<br />

arrangement for your kitchen.<br />

Primula also copes well growing in<br />

the shade.<br />

If you’re not into the primula<br />

pinks, violas have a bolder look<br />

and come in range of blues,<br />

yellows and oranges. To really<br />

make these colours pop, when<br />

planting try thinking about your<br />

complementary colours – if you’ve<br />

got a terracotta orange pot, try<br />

planting blue blooms.<br />

Alternatively, if your pot (or<br />

house colour) is blue, try the citrus<br />

or orange violas, to really make<br />

them stand out. Purple and yellow<br />

flowers will also complement each<br />

other, and really stand out in a pot<br />

together.<br />

Polyanthus has a smaller bloom<br />

(framed by its leaves) appearance.<br />

There are blue, red, pink, white<br />

and yellow polyanthus – so you’re<br />

bound to find something you like.<br />

They look pretty in a pot<br />

on a table, and you’ll often see<br />

polyanthus in perfectly planted<br />

borders at public gardens.<br />

When getting ready to plant<br />

your seedlings, choose a spot that<br />

receives some sun, and has good<br />

drainage. If your garden is looking<br />

a bit tired after summer, turn over<br />

the soil, and dig through some<br />

organic compost or fertiliser. Once<br />

this is done, dig holes for your<br />

flowers, <strong>10</strong>-20cm apart.<br />

You want the holes to be<br />

large enough so the roots of the<br />

seedlings don’t get squashed. Place<br />

the seedlings in, and press soil<br />

firmly down around it.<br />

Your plants will benefit from a<br />

good initial watering, and adding a<br />

layer of mulch around them. This<br />

will help retain moisture, soften<br />

the frost, and repel the weeds.<br />

If you’ve flower seedlings left<br />

over, an old favourite of mine is<br />

to pack them into a low hanging<br />

basket. Pop your primula,<br />

polyanthus or violas in, and add<br />

some lobelia to really soften the<br />

sides. And, as we leave summer<br />

behind, I also like that baskets<br />

aren’t so labour intensive with<br />

minimal watering required.<br />

In six to eight weeks, you’ll start<br />

to see colour popping through,<br />

all set for your coming cooler<br />

months. And remember – as with<br />

most flowers – to pick the off the<br />

deadheads to encourage more to<br />

bloom.<br />

Preparing your garden for winter weather<br />

THE COOLER temperatures of<br />

autumn have arrived, and so too<br />

has the beautiful colourful display<br />

of leaves on deciduous trees.<br />

It’s another busy month in the<br />

garden as we prepare our gardens<br />

for the colder winter months.<br />

Growing winter veges in<br />

containers<br />

If you are short on space in<br />

the garden, grow your veges<br />

in containers and/or pots. Try<br />

silverbeet, spinach, broccoli, peas<br />

and winter lettuce. Use fresh<br />

potting mix and make sure your<br />

pots/containers have good drainage<br />

holes. Place them in a warm sunny,<br />

north facing, position, away from<br />

strong winds. Add a layer of mulch<br />

on top to protect the soil.<br />

Planting winter vege<br />

seedlings<br />

<strong>April</strong> is the favoured month for<br />

planting winter vegetable seedlings.<br />

Add fresh compost to the vege<br />

plot before planting broad beans,<br />

broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower,<br />

lettuce, onions, peas, radish,<br />

spinach, swedes and turnips. It’s a<br />

good idea to stagger your plantings<br />

(called succession planting) every<br />

two to three weeks so you have a<br />

continuous harvest throughout<br />

winter.<br />

If temperatures are dropping<br />

at night, put jars or plastic bottles<br />

over seedlings to protect them<br />

against early frosts – this also<br />

helps keep snails and slugs at bay.<br />

Remember to remove any covers in<br />

the morning.<br />

Planting flowering winter<br />

annuals<br />

Summer flowering annuals are<br />

just about finished. Remove old<br />

plants into the compost bin and if<br />

you haven’t already, prepare beds<br />

for planting with fresh compost.<br />

Winter annuals to plant in this<br />

month include; alyssum, aquilegia,<br />

calendulas, cineraria, cornflower,<br />

lobelia, lupins, nemesia, pansies,<br />

primulas, snapdragons, status,<br />

stock, sweet pea, sweet william,<br />

violas and wallflowers.<br />

Plant up pots and containers for<br />

NOURISH: Add plenty of compost into your existing soil.<br />

colourful displays on decks and<br />

balconies – they will provide a real<br />

lift over the dreary winter months.<br />

Preparing the strawberry<br />

patch<br />

May is the preferred time for<br />

planting strawberries so use this<br />

month to prepare your strawberry<br />

patch for planting. Prepare the<br />

soil and mound areas for planting<br />

above the existing ground level,<br />

adding fresh compost and<br />

compacting the soil. Remove<br />

‘runners’ from last seasons<br />

strawberry plants and keep them<br />

in a large container filled with fresh<br />

potting mix until they are planted<br />

next month.<br />

Fruit tree harvesting<br />

Feijoas and early kiwifruit are<br />

ripening. Leave feijoas to fall to<br />

the ground before collecting the<br />

fruit. All stone fruit trees can be<br />

given an end-of-season spray with<br />

a copper compound towards the<br />

end of <strong>April</strong>. Peach and nectarine<br />

tree pruning can start as their leaf<br />

fall has begun. Lemons will be<br />

colouring later in the month and<br />

can be harvested then.<br />

Ornamental shrubs<br />

The first of the winter flowering<br />

shrubs such as camelias will begin<br />

blooming. Garden centres will have<br />

new season plants in stock next<br />

month, so prepare new gardens for<br />

planting now by adding plenty of<br />

compost.<br />

End of the rose growing<br />

season<br />

Just a few rose varieties such as<br />

iceberg will be flowering into May.<br />

In general, roses are near the end<br />

of their growing season and sadly,<br />

look their least attractive. Although<br />

it may be tempting to start<br />

pruning, it’s still a little early as a<br />

warm spell can bring about a burst<br />

of new growth which could then be<br />

damaged by frosts. Continue good<br />

garden hygiene such as removing<br />

all fallen leaves and dead flowers to<br />

help prevent over-wintering fungal<br />

diseases like rust and blackspot.<br />

Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 lively and refined<br />

EXPECTATIONS are high on<br />

any new model replacing a top<br />

seller, even more so when it<br />

happens to be the GLC SUV, a<br />

sales star for Mercedes-Benz the<br />

producer of some of the finest<br />

luxury vehicles on the planet.<br />

Is the second generation of the<br />

popular GLC up to the challenge?<br />

It certainly makes a strong<br />

start, by offering features for the<br />

New Zealand market that were<br />

pricey options packages, part of a<br />

more generous range of standard<br />

equipment. The GLC is new, but<br />

faces off against the same old<br />

adversaries such as the BMW X3,<br />

Audi Q5 and Lexus NX.<br />

The only model sold here is the<br />

GLC 300 4MATIC priced from<br />

$113,900 and was the chosen<br />

one for this road test. There is<br />

only one $6900 option package.<br />

It comprises MBUX Augmented<br />

Reality for Navigation, GUARD<br />

360 ° Vehicle Protection Plus,<br />

Burmester 3D surround sound<br />

system, Digital Light, Adaptive<br />

Highbeam Assist Plus, and heat<br />

and noise-insulating acoustic<br />

glass.<br />

The generation two GLC is<br />

longer which helps unlock an<br />

additional 50 litres of boot space<br />

while there are a host of other<br />

Motoring with Bob Nettleton<br />

worthwhile enhancements over<br />

the previous model.<br />

The ones you will notice most<br />

are new body-coloured wheel<br />

arches, tapered running boards<br />

and 20-inch AMG bi-colour alloy<br />

wheels. <br />

It keeps making every post<br />

a winner, with a bold overhaul<br />

of the passenger compartment<br />

that follows the lead of its C-<br />

Class sibling, and banishing<br />

almost all buttons and switches.<br />

These are replaced by a central<br />

portrait-oriented display screen<br />

that becomes the go-to for most<br />

vehicle’s functions, including the<br />

latest generation of the company’s<br />

lauded MBUX infotainment<br />

system.The exterior adds<br />

improved aerodynamics creating<br />

less wind resistance and noise<br />

and better fuel consumption.<br />

This model has increased<br />

in size almost everywhere<br />

compared to its predecessor.<br />

It’s 60mm longer, the rear track<br />

width is up a whopping 23mm<br />

and the wheelbase receives a<br />

15mm stretch to 2888mm. The<br />

width is unchanged from the<br />

previous model at 1890mm, but<br />

still remains among the best in<br />

its class.<br />

The luggage capacity has<br />

increased significantly to a<br />

generous 620-litres. The rear<br />

seat backrest can be split-folded<br />

in a 40:20:40 ratio. Electrically<br />

operated unlocking of the rear<br />

seat backrest is activated by<br />

push-button switches on the<br />

left and right side of the rear<br />

seat backrest, or via controls<br />

in the load compartment. A<br />

power tailgate is standard and<br />

operated via the ignition key, a<br />

switch in the driver’s door, or the<br />

unlocking handle on the tailgate.<br />

The GLC 300 features a 48V<br />

electrical system and secondgeneration<br />

Integrated Starter<br />

Generator (ISG), providing<br />

support off the mark and in<br />

the low rev range. This, in<br />

tandem with turbocharging,<br />

ensures strong and seamless<br />

power delivery. The electrical<br />

system with its ‘gliding’, boost<br />

or recuperation function yields<br />

further fuel consumption<br />

reductions.<br />

The ISG can provide an<br />

additional 17kW of power and<br />

200Nm of torque and recuperate<br />

higher electrical outputs than<br />

a belt-driven starter generator.<br />

It also sees the engine start<br />

quickly and quietly, making the<br />

transition from stop to start<br />

barely discernible from the<br />

drivers seat.<br />

The combination of these<br />

systems ensures smooth power<br />

from a 190kW turbocharged<br />

Ratings out of <strong>10</strong>: Performance 8; Handling 7; Build Quality<br />

9; Comfort 8; Passenger and Load Space 5; Value for<br />

money: 7; Safety – Five Star ANCAP rating.<br />

Overall points out of <strong>10</strong>: 8<br />

four-cylinder engine producing<br />

400Nm of torque – up 30Nm on<br />

the outgoing model. This ensures<br />

improved strength and flexibility<br />

through the rev range. Lively<br />

and supremely refined, it shifts a<br />

solid luxury SUV with verve and<br />

purpose that is up a good notch<br />

on the previous engine.<br />

This latest GLC power plant is<br />

another in a long line of recent<br />

smaller capacity Mercedes<br />

motors that emphatically prove<br />

you can do more, in fact a<br />

lot more, with less. The main<br />

takeaways from this engine<br />

for me were its smoothness<br />

and linear power delivery<br />

that collectively provides a<br />

memorable driving experience.<br />

A sophisticated and highly<br />

organised 9-speed automatic<br />

effortlessly reels off gear changes<br />

with accuracy and precision.<br />

There is an abundance of<br />

usable passenger and load space<br />

that eclipses the old model. It<br />

bristles with high-quality cabin<br />

materials such as Artico seats,<br />

upper dash and door linings;<br />

wood grain dashboard trim; and<br />

piano black finish for the centre<br />

console. Wireless smartphone<br />

integration and charging are<br />

standard.<br />

This is the best equipped GLC<br />

yet with features including a<br />

panoramic sunroof and headup<br />

display, front seat electric<br />

adjustment, memory settings and<br />

heated seats.<br />

There is also a new addition to<br />

the Mercedes-Benz SUV range.<br />

Targeted towards journeys over<br />

rougher terrain, the “transparent<br />

bonnet” shows an image on the<br />

central display screen of any<br />

lurking ground obstructions<br />

directly in front of, or below<br />

the front of the vehicle, as well<br />

as the angle of the front wheels.<br />

This clever tech finds a safe path<br />

through challenging terrain<br />

fraught with hazards.<br />

With the press of a button,<br />

Dynamic Select lets you adjust<br />

the suspension to suit a variety<br />

of driving scenarios. Adaptive<br />

damping with its comfort and<br />

sport modes allows you to add<br />

some interesting variations.<br />

Ride quality is impressive with<br />

the test vehicle easily absorbing,<br />

without fuss, a variety of road<br />

surfaces I lobbed its way, to<br />

try and generate a bit of angry<br />

suspension noise or bump thud,<br />

but came up empty handed.<br />

The handling is agile and well<br />

balanced with good grip and<br />

traction, with much of this down<br />

to how the suspension and 4WD<br />

system work as one. This isn’t a<br />

serious off-roader and doesn’t<br />

claim to be. However, it’s well<br />

suited for tackling skifield access<br />

roads, or traversing well-formed<br />

tracks.<br />

Situations Vacant<br />

Administrator /<br />

Receptionist<br />

Are you highly motivated, personable and enjoy working with teenagers? Can you<br />

effectively prioritise and facilitate requests with a smile but also be able to pay attention<br />

to the little things to ensure nothing falls through the cracks? Great, then this might be the<br />

role for you.<br />

Due to growth, Rolleston College seeks a full-time administration superstar to join our<br />

fabulous team<br />

here at the College commencing Term 2, <strong>2024</strong>. Your ability to work as part of a team with<br />

high integrity, confidentiality and honesty are essential. While experience in a secondary<br />

school setting and knowledge of KAMAR is preferable, it is not essential for the right<br />

candidate as training and support will be provided.<br />

Our Administrator/Receptionist roles are varied. However, your skills will be crucial in<br />

helping to prioritise and facilitate staff, learner, whānau and community requests. Each<br />

team member currently holds a portfolio of work to allow for growth. This will enable us to<br />

develop, embed and share portfolios amongst the team, allowing for individual ownership<br />

and school growth. For this role we would ideally like someone with scheduling, event or<br />

facility management experience to assist facility coordination such as van bookings, facility<br />

hireage, theatre set up and support.<br />

Reporting to our Admin Supervisor, the roles are permanent, full-time (37.5 hours per<br />

week), term-time-only positions. Your work hours will be 8.00 am to 4.00 pm, carried out<br />

each week of the school term, Monday to Friday. In addition to your core term time hours,<br />

the role will require you to work ten additional days (approx two days, each term break)<br />

to help with back-to-school, end-of-the-year, post and preterm preparations. Non-term<br />

hours may require some flexibility but can be negotiated in advance, depending on school<br />

commitments.<br />

Please apply via our vacancy tab on our website www.rollestoncollege.nz under the<br />

Community Network, then staff vacancies tab. Applications close Monday 22nd <strong>April</strong>.<br />

40 <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> Wednesday <strong>April</strong> <strong>10</strong> <strong>2024</strong><br />

Our top 5<br />

autumn tips.<br />

Autumn is an ideal planting time,<br />

here are our top tips for the season.<br />

1: Watch your watering<br />

Although it’s hard to believe in Canterbury, a common cause of dead plants in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> is too much water. As we head into the cooler months, plants have far lower<br />

water requirements. It’s best to give plants a deep soak less regularly, instead of<br />

constant frequent watering. Add a really good layer of organic mulch with a deep<br />

soak, and you can almost turn the hose off until mid-spring.<br />

2: Dig a $50 hole for a $15 tree.<br />

This old saying is a goodie. When planting any new plants, spend most of your time<br />

and money on improving your soil, drainage, staking, mulching and maintenance. It’s<br />

hard, dirty work, but you won’t regret it.<br />

3: Ditch the weed mat<br />

Synthetic weed mat is detrimental to plant and soil health in the long term. It also<br />

adds cost, puts plastic into the environment, and is tricky to install. Why would you?<br />

Look for bio-degradable wool alternatives if you really need matting, but <strong>10</strong>0mm of<br />

organic mulch is our recommended option.<br />

4: Species selection is key.<br />

Just because you saw that lush banana tree on Pinterest, doesn’t mean it’s going to<br />

love the Rolleston climate! Talk to our expert team to ensure plants are suitable for<br />

your site before you put them in the ground.<br />

5: Engage expertise. Talk to our design team today.<br />

We have an experienced team of in-house landscape architects ready to tackle your<br />

next project. From rural to residential, our team can design your dream landscape,<br />

working with your ideas to create a personal and practical planting plan. Book<br />

through our website, we recommend a site visit to get your project underway.<br />

Your guide to all things Real Estate<br />

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

Maintaining your heat pump<br />

The chill is in the air, and heat pumps will be in<br />

great demand again as temperatures drop. Regular<br />

maintenance is essential to get the best out of your unit,<br />

extend its lifespan, and maintain efficiency. It’s also an<br />

excellent time to check if any repairs are needed before<br />

anything happens, as a cold and miserable day is the<br />

worst time for it to malfunction. Here are a few tips to<br />

maintain a healthy air conditioning system.<br />

One way to ensure your peace of mind is to have<br />

your unit serviced by professionals every few years.<br />

They can check everything is running well and perform<br />

some diagnostic checks at the same time. Of course,<br />

if your heat pump develops a fault, begins leaking, or<br />

makes unusual noises, then calling in a professional is<br />

best.<br />

You can take proactive steps to care for your heat<br />

pump, such as regularly cleaning or replacing filters,<br />

keeping the outdoor unit free from debris and bugs,<br />

and scheduling regular professional maintenance<br />

checks.<br />

Start with the indoor unit. Cleaning the filters is<br />

an easy way to keep your heat pump performing<br />

efficiently. If you use it mostly in winter, once a<br />

year may be sufficient. However, cleaning the filters<br />

each season is a good idea if it is used extensively<br />

throughout the year. Open the cover and remove the<br />

filters. Using a dust brush attachment (or upholstery<br />

tool) on your vacuum cleaner, vacuum the filters at a<br />

lower power setting. Then, move onto the vanes and<br />

fins before returning the filters inside the unit.<br />

The outdoor unit is the next step. Remove any<br />

vegetation close to the unit and ensure it is free from<br />

any obstacles and nothing is preventing adequate<br />

airflow. Check for any bugs or nests in the unit and<br />

remove anything you find. Also, check for any damage<br />

or unit corrosion, as dealing with issues immediately<br />

will extend the heat pump’s life. Your final check is to<br />

turn the heat pump back on and ensure it operates as it<br />

should.<br />

Keeping the system clean and well-maintained can<br />

reduce the strain on the heat pump components and<br />

prevent premature wear and tear. Regular maintenance<br />

will also ensure that minor issues are dealt with before<br />

they become major problems, allowing you to enjoy the<br />

reliable indoor comfort of your heat pump for many<br />

years.<br />
