NGĀI TAHU HAS SURPRISE PLANS FOR GREENPARK HUTS<br />

Residents<br />

will still<br />

have to go<br />

• By Daniel Alvey and<br />

Geoff Sloan<br />

GREENPARK Huts residents<br />

who will be forced out of their<br />

homes are shocked Ngāi Tahu<br />

will build a facility at the site<br />

after they have gone.<br />

The 32 bach owners were due<br />

to vacate their homes at the end<br />

of this month. But they have<br />

been given a one-year reprieve,<br />

with Ngāi Tahu extending the<br />

date to <strong>June</strong> 30, 2025.<br />

In 2020, Ngāi Tahu told hut<br />

owners it would not renew their<br />

leases and said people would<br />

have until <strong>June</strong> 30 this year to<br />

leave and clear the site of any<br />

structures.<br />

In its reasons for ending hut<br />

leases, Ngāi Tahu cited sea level<br />

rise, issues with wastewater<br />

removal and drinking water<br />

supply, and the cultural<br />

significance of the area.<br />

Ngāi Tahu says it will help<br />

with some costs including<br />

project management fees,<br />

asbestos testing, capping of<br />

drinking water bores and the<br />

decommissioning of septic<br />

tanks.<br />

But <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> can reveal<br />

Ngāi Tahu plans to establish a<br />

centre of excellence for mahinga<br />

kai on the site.<br />

Mahinga kai means ‘to work<br />

the food’. It relates to traditional<br />

food gathering practices, as well<br />

as protecting ecosystems and<br />

habitats species are found in.<br />

Almost all residents were<br />

unaware of the centre until they<br />

were told by <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong>.<br />

Resident Ross Wilson said the<br />

Ngāi Tahu plan was a double<br />

standard.<br />

<strong>June</strong> <strong>2024</strong> – February 2025, Te Ara Ātea<br />

What lies beyond our everyday encounters with water? How well do we see the stories that water<br />

holds? In Te Ara Ātea’s new art exhibition, Undercurrents, artists offer us a different way of seeing and<br />

thinking about our relationship to water in Waikirikiri <strong>Selwyn</strong>. Essential to life on Earth, there<br />

are endless thoughts and perspectives about water; Undercurrents includes just six of them.<br />

Undercurrents presents commissioned artworks by Tia Barrett, Megan Brady, Madison Kelly, and<br />

Pauline Rhodes alongside work by John Bevan Ford and Emily Parr on loan from the Lincoln University<br />

collection and the University of Canterbury collection. Each artist tells a different story that prompts us<br />

to think about the many waters that surround us and what stories flow beneath them.<br />

Rolleston College, ministry agree<br />

on stage one of second campus<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

ROLLESTON College and the<br />

Ministry of Education have<br />

reached an agreement that allows<br />

construction of the school’s<br />

second campus to start next<br />

month.<br />

It comes after the college<br />

and the ministry sat down for<br />

mediation with an independent<br />

consultant, to finalise details for<br />

stage one of the senior campus,<br />

located on the corner of <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

and Springston Rolleston Rds,<br />

about 2.5km from the college.<br />

Principal<br />

Rachel Skelton<br />

said the college<br />

is “happy<br />

enough” with<br />

stage one of the<br />

plan.<br />

“It was relatively<br />

positive in<br />

Rachel<br />

terms of coming<br />

Skelton<br />

to an agreement<br />

to communicate<br />

and work together going forward,”<br />

Skelton said.<br />

The stripped-back plan was<br />

budgeted at about $52 million,<br />

but the ministry refused to<br />

provide the new revised cost to<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong>. It cited commercial<br />

sensitivity, as procurement<br />

and delivery were still to be<br />

undertaken.<br />

The college’s roll is estimated<br />

to grow from 1800 to 3000 by<br />

2030.<br />

In March, Skelton slammed<br />

the ministry for cutbacks made<br />

to the project, which included<br />

the possibility of stages two and<br />

three not happening at all. At the<br />

time, Skelton was also critical<br />

of the Government blaming the<br />

former Labour government for<br />

the issues.<br />

The college had invited Prime<br />

Minister Christopher Luxon,<br />

Education Minister Erica Stanford,<br />

and <strong>Selwyn</strong> MP Nicola<br />

Grigg to attend a public meeting.<br />

All three declined, with Grigg<br />

unable to attend due to being on<br />

maternity leave.<br />

Skelton said support from<br />

the community, including a<br />

3253-signature petition, helped<br />

keep the college front of mind for<br />

the ministry.<br />

“I think it’s had a really big<br />

impact. We’re just so grateful the<br />

community has stood behind<br />

the college and young people in<br />

Rolleston,” she said.<br />

The college has been in talks<br />

with the ministry since March,<br />

GREEN<br />

LIGHT: Work<br />

on stage one<br />

of Rolleston<br />

College’s<br />

second<br />

campus will<br />

start next<br />

month after<br />

it reached an<br />

agreement<br />

with the<br />

Ministry of<br />

Education.<br />

which ended with mediation in<br />

April. The mediation cost the<br />

ministry $6000.<br />

Ministry head of property<br />

Sam Fowler said the mediation<br />

had been a productive, positive<br />

process.<br />

“It’s resulted in a workable<br />

compromise for stage one of the<br />

college’s expansion,” he said.<br />

When the second campus was<br />

announced, stage one was due to<br />

open at the start of 2025. Current<br />

timelines suggest it will now<br />

open in 2026.<br />

The scaled-down gym remains,<br />

from two courts to one,<br />

but the college will spend its own<br />

money upgrading the floor to<br />

sprung wood.<br />

The ministry has agreed to<br />

another playing field and moving<br />

temporary classrooms used<br />

at the main college site to the<br />

second campus, giving the college<br />

back playing field and car<br />

parking space.<br />

The science and technology<br />

block has remained mostly unchanged.<br />

While happy with stage one,<br />

Skelton’s concerns lie with stages<br />

two and three.<br />

“My bigger concern is ensuring<br />

stages two and three stay on<br />

track and that they follow stage<br />

one . . . We need it to continue to<br />

progress,” she said.<br />

Stage two will deliver the front<br />

office, arts and english block,<br />

theatre and whare. Stage three<br />

will provide the maths and social<br />

science block, library, canteen,<br />

and learning support areas.<br />

“We need to keep those<br />

(stages) front of mind (for the<br />

ministry) because all three stages<br />

create a full school.”<br />

Fowler said the ministry will<br />

continue to work with the college<br />

on future stages.<br />

There’s more to lose<br />

than your licence<br />

CLOSE CALL: Firefighters assess the damage at a Liffey Pl,<br />

Lincoln, property after a heat lamp caught fire.<br />

Tiny home ruined;<br />

heat lamp fire put<br />

out by occupants<br />

• By Isabella Adams<br />

A MAN seriously injured when a<br />

tiny home caught fire attempted<br />

to fight the blaze with a garden<br />

hose.<br />

Dunsandel firefighter Al<br />

Sheppard said the tiny home on<br />

Karanga Rd had burnt to the<br />

floor by the time they arrived at<br />

6.08am on Sunday. A car parked<br />

next to it was also on fire.<br />

It took units from Dunsandel,<br />

Hororata and Rakaia five minutes<br />

to contain the fire. They were unable<br />

to determine what caused it<br />

at the time.<br />

Meanwhile, a shower almost<br />

turned into disaster after a faulty<br />

heat lamp caught fire.<br />

A mother and daughter were<br />

inside the Liffey Pl, Lincoln,<br />

property when the heat lamp<br />

burst into flames in the bathroom<br />

on King’s Birthday.<br />

Lincoln deputy chief fire officer<br />

Tim Quinlivan said the mother<br />

was about to have a shower when<br />

she turned on the heat lamp then<br />

left the room for five minutes.<br />

Once she came back and noticed<br />

the heat lamp on fire, she alerted<br />

her daughter, and they shut<br />

the door to the bathroom and<br />

bedrooms to prevent smoke<br />

from spreading. The mother then<br />

called 111.<br />

Quinlivan said the fire was out<br />

on arrival. The flames had burnt<br />

through the ceiling and melted<br />

a water pipe, which put out the<br />

blaze.<br />

He said the bathroom was the<br />

only room damaged, thanks to<br />

the pair’s quick thinking. If they<br />

hadn’t closed the door to the<br />

bathroom, there would have been<br />

a risk of the fire spreading.<br />

Quinlivan said they were not<br />

able to determine how the lamp<br />

caught fire as it was burnt beyond<br />

recognition. He said it was old<br />

and well used.<br />

He advised all people with<br />

heat lamps to do regular<br />

maintenance, as dust build-up<br />

and a malfunctioning fan could<br />

contribute to lamps potentially<br />

over-heating and causing a fire.<br />

gives ‘false hope’<br />

• From page 1<br />

“It would be nice to find out a<br />

bit more about that, and we will<br />

in time, but it seems very strange<br />

if they’re going to put that on<br />

here when they’re talking about<br />

sea level rise,” Wilson said.<br />

Resident Don Brown, who is<br />

Ngāi Tahu, found out about the<br />

plan in a meeting with the iwi on<br />

May 26, two days after the extension<br />

was given.<br />

He had asked for a meeting to<br />

discuss his personal situation,<br />

and how the iwi could help him<br />

relocate to another home on the<br />

lake, not at Greenpark Huts.<br />

“They offered me a home<br />

occupied by a former pakeha<br />

fisherman, but it was totally<br />

unsatisfactory.”<br />

Brown said tikanga (custom)<br />

had not been carried out to<br />

remove tapu since a person had<br />

died at the home, and therefore<br />

he could not take it.<br />

It was at that meeting he asked<br />

what the plans were for the<br />

Greenpark Huts land. He was<br />

told it would become a centre of<br />

excellence.<br />

“When my son and I asked at<br />

a meeting with Ngāi Tahu when<br />

can we expect that? The answer<br />

was unknown. Is there a budget?<br />

No.”<br />

Brown has a centuries-old<br />

connection to Te Waihora Lake<br />

‘If you’re going to build a<br />

centre of excellence for<br />

mahinga kai, why not just<br />

leave Don Brown and his<br />

hut here’ – Don Brown<br />

Ellesmere, which started well<br />

before Ngāi Tahu arrived in<br />

Canterbury in about 1690.<br />

Brown traces his whakapapa<br />

back to pre-Ngāi Tahu Ngati<br />

Māmoe and Waitaha, iwi which<br />

used the lake as a valuable food<br />

source 400-500 years ago.<br />

He has lived in his bach for<br />

about 30 years.<br />

He uses it as his connection<br />

to Te Waihora Lake Ellesmere and<br />

is regularly fishing the lake and<br />

engaging in mahinga kai.<br />

“If you’re going to build a centre<br />

of excellence for mahinga kai,<br />

why not just leave Don Brown<br />

and his hut here.”<br />

Te Taumutu Rūnanga chair<br />

Dr Liz Brown confirmed the<br />

plans for the centre, but did<br />

not respond to questions from<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> about what was<br />

going to be built, when and at<br />

what cost.<br />

Liz Brown is Don Brown’s<br />

second cousin.<br />

She also did not respond to<br />

questions about why the iwi was<br />

looking to establish a centre,<br />

given the reasons cited for the<br />

huts’ removal, which include<br />

climate change concerns.<br />

Hut owners were sent a letter<br />

from Ngāi Tahu chief executive<br />

Ben Bateman about the yearlong<br />

extension.<br />

“We have heard from a<br />

number of leaseholders that<br />

more time is needed to ensure<br />

leaseholders are well-informed<br />

about their demolition options,”<br />

Bateman said in the letter.<br />

He also said the time would<br />

allow people to get Government<br />

support to find alternative<br />

housing. Ngāi Tahu would<br />

continue discussions with<br />

residents.<br />

Brown said the extension was<br />

just dragging out the inevitable.<br />

“It just gives people false<br />

hope.”<br />

Wilson said the extension has<br />

given people “breathing space”.<br />

“It was a huge relief to the ones<br />

who are still out there. But a lot<br />

of them are saying they (Ngāi<br />

Tahu) are just tormenting<br />

us with another year of pressure.”<br />

Bach owner Kane Scarrott’s<br />

family has owned a hut since<br />

1953. Scarrott also has a bach of<br />

his own. He said the extra year<br />

makes no difference.<br />

“I’m not going anywhere, there<br />

is no grounds for them to make<br />

us leave,” Scarrott said.<br />

Break-ins taking toll on business owner<br />

A ROLLESTON business owner<br />

has been waking every night since<br />

his tech store was ram-raided.<br />

In the early hours of Thursday<br />

morning, a group of masked<br />

offenders used a Toyota Aqua to<br />

smash into TechPro Rolleston.<br />

The offenders stole phone accessories<br />

and devices from both<br />

the front and the back of the<br />

Masefield St store.<br />

Owner Ravinder Singh was yet<br />

to add up the cost of the latest<br />

ram-raid.<br />

It came after he suffered a<br />

smash-and-grab on May 1 when<br />

a group forced their way in, one<br />

only in his boxers.<br />

Singh estimated the loss of<br />

property and damage to be about<br />

$20,000.<br />

But the toll is much greater<br />

than money.<br />

“My wife has been having<br />

nightmares and has been getting<br />

up to check the cameras every<br />

night,” Singh said.<br />

Singh opened the store in 2019<br />

after moving from Auckland<br />

where he had lived since 2013.<br />

Up until this year, he had had no<br />

break-ins.<br />

After reviewing the security<br />

footage, Singh believed the offenders<br />

in both instances were<br />

youths and potentially connected.<br />

“They looked to know what<br />

they were looking for, like they<br />

Police received a report of a<br />

commercial burglary at 4.08am<br />

on Thursday on Masefield St,<br />

Rolleston, a spokesperson said.<br />

The stolen vehicle used in the<br />

ram-raid had been found in the<br />

Rolleston Square parking lot and<br />

was being forensically examined.<br />

Inquiries were ongoing, the<br />

spokesperson said.<br />

Singh said another security<br />

camera in the area showed the<br />

offenders leaving in another car.<br />

The store does have bollards<br />

on the footpath, but the car used<br />

to ram-raid the store fit between<br />

them. Singh said he was talking<br />

to his landlord about other<br />

protections he could make to the<br />

store.<br />

near Darfield on Friday.<br />

Samantha Orlowski, 23, was<br />

killed in the single-vehicle<br />

grateful for anything you can<br />

donate to help to take the<br />

financial strain off . . . her<br />

parents,” the page said.<br />

“Sam was only 23-years-old<br />

and had her whole life ahead<br />

of her, we are absolutely heartbroken.<br />

Speed limits around <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

schools will be changing<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council is pleased to<br />

begin the rollout of speed reductions around<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> schools following the certification<br />

of its Interim Speed Management Plan by<br />

NZTA Waka Kotahi.<br />

This means a variable 30km/h speed limit<br />

will be introduced around most <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

schools during peak times when children are<br />

arriving and leaving. These changes will come<br />

into effect once signs are installed around the<br />

schools.<br />

The council has been supportive of<br />

reducing speeds at high-risk locations around<br />

the district but needed to ensure that any<br />

reductions comply with legal requirements<br />

surrounding the setting of speed limits.<br />

These new speed limits will be effective<br />

on school days from 8.30-9.00am and 2:45-<br />

3:15pm. To keep drivers informed, electronic<br />

flashing signs will activate on main roads near<br />

schools during these times, and permanent<br />

static signs will be installed on all side roads<br />

around the schools. Certain schools will also<br />

have the capability to activate these signs as<br />

needed, such as for bus trips.<br />

Research indicates that a 30km/h speed<br />

limit should ideally be permanent around<br />

schools, sports centres, and other high-activity<br />

areas. However, feedback from public consultation<br />

in December 2023 and the stance of<br />

the new Government show a preference for<br />

non-permanent speed reductions.<br />

Taking this feedback into account, we have<br />

formulated our Interim Speed Management<br />

Plan to focus primarily on schools in the<br />

district.<br />

We urge you to be extra vigilant and adhere<br />

to the lower speeds around our schools. Drive<br />

with care to ensure the safety of our children<br />

and community. Your co-operation is vital in<br />

making <strong>Selwyn</strong> a safer place for everyone.<br />

Comedian embracing happiness<br />

after incurable cancer diagnosis<br />

Dai Henwood headlines<br />

a sold out Comedy<br />

Night at the Lincoln<br />

Event Centre on<br />

Saturday. Today he talks<br />

about his journey with<br />

bowel cancer<br />

IT WAS ALMOST a relief when<br />

his cancer diagnosis was classed<br />

as incurable, comedian Dai<br />

Henwood says.<br />

Prior to that, he was on a mission<br />

to be cured.<br />

“When there was this intent to<br />

cure, there was so much pressure<br />

on every scan, so much pressure<br />

on every blood test, because I<br />

wanted it to be gone, I’m fighting<br />

for it to be gone,” Henwood said.<br />

“And then when it was sort of<br />

incurable, it was like, Okay, we’re<br />

in maintenance mode.”<br />

During Henwood’s 25-year<br />

career he has won many major<br />

comedy gongs, including the Billy<br />

T Award, he’s a regular on the<br />

country’s longest running comedy<br />

programme, 7 Days – and<br />

he’s hosted many shows including<br />

Family Feud,Dancing with the<br />

Stars and Lego Masters.<br />

His latest project is a memoir,<br />

The Life of Dai, co-written with<br />

his friend and fellow comedian<br />

Jacqui Brown.<br />

Henwood was diagnosed in<br />

2020 when the country was in<br />

lockdown.<br />

“It felt like a country-wide<br />

sleepover, where no one knew<br />

what was happening. No one<br />

knew what to do.<br />

“I remember going to a<br />

supermarket and there was a guy<br />

in a full wetsuit with a snorkel.<br />

Everyone was doing everything<br />

on the fly.”<br />

His own experience with bowel<br />

cancer was sadly similar to many<br />

others, he said.<br />

“I was misdiagnosed, I had<br />

symptoms in 2017 and I saw my<br />

GP and then I actually saw a bowel<br />

specialist and they missed it.<br />

POSITIVE: After being diagnosed with incurable bowel<br />

cancer in 2020, Dai Henwood decided he would squeeze<br />

all the life out of whatever time he has left.<br />

PHOTO: FACEBOOK<br />

“I didn’t fit the bell curve of<br />

who was allowed a colonoscopy.<br />

So, I didn’t have a colonoscopy at<br />

that stage. And then finally, when<br />

symptoms got very bad, with a lot<br />

of rectal bleeding, my GP really<br />

pushed for colonoscopy, and I had<br />

one in 2020. So that was almost<br />

three-and-a-half, four years after<br />

my symptoms came up.”<br />

Now Henwood is on a mission<br />

to help others living with cancer.<br />

“I’m just trying to help people<br />

reframe things, realise that if<br />

you’ve got cancer, you are living<br />

with cancer, you need to really<br />

squeeze the sponge and squeeze<br />

every moment of life out.<br />

“And that doesn’t mean<br />

ticking [the] bucket list often,<br />

running around the world, and<br />

mortgaging your house to go to<br />

Disneyland.<br />

“It means just enjoying the<br />

moment and that could be sitting<br />

in looking at a beautiful<br />

tree. It could be playing snakes<br />

and ladders with your kids could<br />

be giving your spouse a real hug.<br />

You’re living, so live now.”<br />

Despite undergoing sometimes<br />

draining treatment, he was as<br />

busy as ever, he said.<br />

“I love my job when I’m<br />

performing – that is when I’m at<br />

my most zen, I don’t think about<br />

anything.<br />

“And cancer is one of those<br />

things, anyone with a chronic<br />

disease will know this, you think<br />

about it. 24/7. So, if you can<br />

have a moment where it’s not<br />

in your mind, and for me when<br />

I’m performing, that’s when all<br />

I’m thinking about is the next<br />

joke, the next interview question,<br />

and that takes me out of it for a<br />

moment, so it’s a real tonic.”<br />

How he responded to cancer<br />

was what defined him, not the<br />

cancer itself.<br />

“I’m going to live; I’m going<br />

to be happy. Happiness and<br />

unhappiness happen in two<br />

different parts of the brain, you<br />

can have heaps of happiness and<br />

heaps of unhappiness all at the<br />

same time.<br />

“So, I just thought, I’m gonna<br />

try and top that happiness up as<br />

much as I can. And how do I do<br />

that – tools like meditation really<br />

helped for me.<br />

“Hot and cold therapy really<br />

helped for me, like jumping in<br />

an ice bath because you literally<br />

can’t think about anything but<br />

how damned cold you are.”<br />

Not that he did not have dark<br />

moments, he said.<br />

“I don’t want anyone to get this<br />

idea that I’m walking around,<br />

dancing on rainbows, with a<br />

smile on my face all the time,<br />

I struggle, I have very dark<br />

moments. I have a lot of tears. I<br />

have times where it’s hard to get<br />

out of bed.”<br />

The world was neither fair nor<br />

unfair, he said.<br />

“Fairness and unfairness are a<br />

human construct, the universe<br />

isn’t fair or unfair, it’s just events,<br />

and how you respond to the<br />

event is what defines you.”<br />

His response was to “fill my<br />

body with love”.<br />

“I send love to my cancer. A lot<br />

of people, and I’m not judging<br />

anyone here, everyone’s journey<br />

is different. A lot of people are<br />

sort of ‘F cancer I’m in this fight’,<br />

whereas I have been sending love<br />

to myself, I actually believe that<br />

love is the answer to so much.<br />

“And you can only start by<br />

really loving yourself. And it’s<br />

something I’m working on, just<br />

trying to fill my body with love<br />

and happiness. And I believe that<br />

that will help me overcome this.”<br />

Open days take off at<br />

unique plane-house<br />

• By Geoff Sloan<br />

LEESTON’S UNIQUE plane-house<br />

was opened up so the public could have<br />

a nosey inside over King’s Birthday<br />

weekend.<br />

Farmers Neil and Sue Mugford<br />

converted part of the decommissioned<br />

Royal New Zealand Air Force Boeing 727<br />

into a two-bedroom, one-bathroom home<br />

on their property.<br />

The couple moved into the completed<br />

plane-house last December, but held open<br />

days over King’s Birthday weekend to pay<br />

homage to the plane’s heritage.<br />

More than <strong>12</strong>00 people went through<br />

the plane over the two days and in excess<br />

of $3000 was raised for the Friends of<br />

Ellesmere Hospital.<br />

NZ7272 was retired at the RNZAF<br />

Woodbourne base in 2003 after 22 years<br />

of faithful service, notably carrying<br />

foreign dignitaries and the late Queen<br />

Elizabeth II.<br />

The front third of the aircraft, including<br />

the cockpit, is on display at the Air Force<br />

Museum of New Zealand in Wigram.<br />

Neil had been looking online for some<br />

stairs for a treehouse he was building for<br />

his grandchildren when he came across<br />

the perfect set.<br />

The only problem was they were still<br />

attached to the retired Boeing 727.<br />

He won the $1 reserve Trade Me<br />

auction for the plane, paying a few<br />

hundred dollars for the stairs, fuselage<br />

and a wing.<br />

“We bought it in July 2019, and with all<br />

that went on in the world and everything<br />

else, we finished it and made it liveable<br />

back in December 2023.”<br />

He added a 150 sq m extension to<br />

the front, complete with a nose-shaped<br />

balcony, a replica tail and tri-jet engines<br />

to complete the look.<br />

“We’ll get over this in a couple of days<br />

and then decide if I need another project<br />

or I need to slow down a bit,” he said.<br />

The Mugfords hope their eye-catching<br />

aeronautical build will help put Leeston<br />

on the map –and may even inspire some<br />

other plane-house creations.<br />

Significant Changes ahead<br />

for Incorporated Societies<br />

The new Incorporated Societies Act 2022<br />

(the Act) passed into law on 5 April 2022,<br />

replacing its 114-year-old predecessor.<br />

The new Act came into effect on October<br />

5, 2023. There are significant changes and<br />

requirements that societies, clubs and<br />

other not-for-profit groups need to be<br />

aware of to remain compliant.<br />

The most significant requirement of the<br />

new Act is that all societies must re-register<br />

with the Registrar of Incorporated Societies<br />

no later than 1 December 2025, but to do<br />

so a society’s rules will need to meet new<br />

requirements set out in the Act.<br />

While most societies’ rules will already<br />

include most of these requirements, it is<br />

very likely they won’t include all of them. It<br />

is therefore really important that societies<br />

get their rules checked and updated to<br />

ensure they are compliant. Societies will<br />

need to ensure they follow the correct<br />

process for amending their rules as well.<br />

The new requirements in societies rules<br />

include:<br />

• Dispute resolution procedures, which<br />

must be consistent with “natural<br />

justice” and align with procedures set<br />

out in the Act<br />

• Processes for keeping the register of<br />

members up to date<br />

• A method for electing a contact<br />

person or persons for the society<br />

• More detail on the composition and<br />

procedures of society officers and its<br />

committee<br />

Failing to re-register before 1 December<br />

2025 has a draconian effect: it will mean<br />

a society ceases to exist. This could cause<br />

serious repercussions for clubs that own<br />

assets, or have entered into contracts, or<br />

hold bank accounts.<br />

The new Act also imposes additional<br />

requirements on society officers and<br />

financial reporting.<br />

• Officers of a society now face all<br />

the same duties that company<br />

directors face when making decisions<br />

for a company. This means that<br />

volunteers who help run and manage<br />

a society may face personal liability<br />

for their decisions, if they turn out<br />

unexpectedly badly for the society.<br />

There may be insurance cover<br />

available, but this just comes at extra<br />

cost to the society (that it may not be<br />

able to fund).<br />

• All societies will have to file annual<br />

financial statements. These will<br />

need to be professionally prepared,<br />

unless a society is a “small” one, with<br />

less than $50,000 worth of assets or<br />

annual expenses.<br />

Almost every club and not-for-profit will<br />

need to seek specialist advice over what<br />

is required to ensure compliance with the<br />

new Act and what is needed to re-register<br />

to remain in existence. While there is<br />

still some time before the deadline date,<br />

it’s best to start the process of getting<br />

everything sorted to re-register earlier<br />

rather than later to ensure the hard<br />

deadline is not missed.<br />

world-famous mystery for yourself?<br />

The Mousetrap has kept millions of<br />

people from every corner of the globe<br />

Whirlwind weekend for pageant-loving mum<br />

• By Claire Reid<br />

ROLLESTON mum Sharvelle<br />

Mackay has taken top spot in the<br />

Australian Pinup Pageant and<br />

put on her own pageant, all in the<br />

same weekend.<br />

Mackay who competes under<br />

the name Miss Chevelle Charlotte<br />

beat 16 other finalists in the<br />

Ballarat, Victoria, event.<br />

She was crowned the overall<br />

winner and also won sashes for<br />

‘social media’, ‘photographers’<br />

choice’ and ‘congeniality’.<br />

“I honestly was so shocked.<br />

My jaw just dropped. I couldn’t<br />

believe it.<br />

“I just kept asking, ‘are you<br />

sure?’. I’ve seen what these competitors<br />

bring to the stage and<br />

it’s phenomenal; I did not expect<br />

whatsoever to place top.<br />

“I was just doing it for fun, so<br />

to win was just incredible,” she<br />

said.<br />

Vintage-lover Mackay has been<br />

competing in pageants for about<br />

six years and has won 30 sashes<br />

which she proudly displays in her<br />

home.<br />

As well as taking part in<br />

competitions, she’s also been a<br />

pageant judge and has even set up<br />

one of her own.<br />

Mackay didn’t rest on her<br />

laurels after her pageant win,<br />

holding Miss Vintage Australasia<br />

<strong>2024</strong> the next day.<br />

“We launched Miss Vintage<br />

Australasia in New Zealand<br />

about four years ago – this was<br />

the first year we’ve taken it to<br />

Australia,” Mackay said.<br />

“So, it was a very busy weekend,<br />

but I had the support of the<br />

Australian Pinup Pageant, which<br />

was really cool.<br />

“For me, these events are about<br />

encouragement, togetherness and<br />

being a part of a community –<br />

and it was really cool to see that<br />

at the Australian Pinup Pageant<br />

as well.”<br />

Huts open day about celebrating history<br />

• By Isabella Adams<br />

RESIDENTS FROM Upper<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Huts want the area to<br />

be known for its history, not it’s<br />

legal battle.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Huts Owners<br />

Association ran an open day<br />

at the village on Sunday. They<br />

gave tours of the area, and held<br />

fundraisers through baking and<br />

raffles.<br />

By the end of the day, $1432<br />

was raised, and treasurer Cara<br />

Zdrenca said the funds would<br />

be going toward legal fees and<br />

upcoming events.<br />

The village is currently in the<br />

midst of a legal battle with the<br />

council which want residents<br />

to move out by 2039 so it can<br />

be demolished due to climate<br />

change concerns. Despite these<br />

challenges, residents want to stay.<br />

The huts were established in<br />

1895 and were originally only<br />

intended to be fishing huts. But<br />

since the 1990s, there has been<br />

a gradual shift to permanent<br />

occupancy.<br />

Resident Kerrily Fea said the<br />

event was a way of celebrating<br />

the history of the huts, and<br />

to take focus away from their<br />

much-publicised issues with the<br />

council.<br />

“The main message we’re<br />

putting out is basically, welcome<br />

to <strong>Selwyn</strong> Huts. This is what<br />

we have here, this is what the<br />

history is, and we think it’s worth<br />

protecting.<br />

“But we weren’t focusing on<br />

(the council). We were just focusing<br />

on engaging the public and<br />

making sure we’re not forgotten,<br />

that the history out there is not<br />

forgotten.”<br />

The association believes about<br />

150 people went to the event<br />

and Zdrenca said it was really<br />

uplifting to have support.<br />

“If there’s one thing that<br />

councils are good at doing, it’s<br />

uniting people against some of<br />

the things that they tend to do.<br />

“I don’t think any of us were<br />

expecting quite that much<br />

support.”<br />

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

Rationale for rezoning request queried<br />

IS IT NOT bad enough to have<br />

Pak’nSave being given approval<br />

to be built opposite a residential<br />

area on Levi Rd, but now have the<br />

audacity to seek a zoning change<br />

to accommodate a Mitre 10 on the<br />

same site.<br />

Seriously what was the point of<br />

building the Izone area if not to<br />

accommodate such commercial<br />

enterprises, so not to be built in a<br />

residential area of Rolleston.<br />

As for Mitre 10 claiming “the<br />

rezoning will provide for a reduction<br />

in greenhouse gas emissions<br />

by reducing the need to travel to<br />

Christchurch” is laughable.<br />

Any savings would be<br />

superseded by the delivery trucks<br />

coming and going to the proposed<br />

site. I agree technically Mitre 10<br />

Hornby is in Christchurch but<br />

lets be realistic Hornby is only<br />

10km from Rolleston so any gas<br />

emissions would be negligible, if<br />

any.<br />

Finally, as for the proposed<br />

new supermarket (Woolworths)<br />

in Rolleston can anyone please<br />

explain why Rolleston would need<br />

possibly four supermarkets (two<br />

Woolworths, one New World<br />

and of course let’s not forget<br />

Pak’nSave) all within a 4km area<br />

is beyond belief.<br />

Lets hope the council has the<br />

courage to decline both of the applications,<br />

but I somehow doubt it.<br />

– Trevor Longmuir<br />

BIG BOX: Applications have been lodged for a Mitre 10 and a second Woolworths in Rolleston.<br />

Stop Signs<br />

Don’t get me started on the<br />

lunatics who refuse to stop at our<br />

intersections.<br />

Just the other day, a car flew out<br />

of Tancreds Rd right in front of<br />

me, barely slowing down.<br />

I am actually terrified of<br />

intersections, particularly those<br />

with vegetation-impaired vision<br />

such as at Leadleys/Ellesmere<br />

Rds and I literally cringe when<br />

passing through. I suggest posting<br />

unemployed people at all our<br />

intersections to photograph<br />

offenders, their cars and number<br />

plates. Then impose an exorbitant<br />

fine on these lawbreakers and<br />

use this revenue to repair our<br />

appalling roads. If fines aren’t<br />

paid, take their cars off them.<br />

Speed bumps and flashing signs<br />

are commendable, but ultimately<br />

it is down to individuals to keep<br />

off their phones, concentrate and<br />

obey the rules. Not hard at all.<br />

– Vicki Krom-Innes<br />

Long Term Plan<br />

It would be interesting to see<br />

what the majority of submissions<br />

said with regard to the building<br />

of facilities in Leeston and<br />

Darfield. Our guess is that most<br />

submissions would have said no.<br />

It makes no sense to us to<br />

spend millions of dollars on new<br />

buildings when the council has<br />

no money to do this.<br />

If councillors take no notice<br />

of ratepayers’ submissions, then<br />

why do we bother voting? How<br />

on earth are ratepayers meant to<br />

pay increasing rates over the next<br />

three years? The Mayor’s answer is<br />

that the system is broken, which is<br />

incorrect. It is just that our council<br />

cannot manage money like the<br />

rest of us have to.<br />

– Steph and David Withell<br />

Council chief executive Sharon<br />

Mason responds: As we have<br />

previously published publicly, 54<br />

per cent of submitters supported<br />

building Whata Rau in Leeston<br />

and 63 per cent of submitters<br />

supported the construction of the<br />

indoor sports courts in Darfield.<br />

Through this Long Term Plan<br />

process, the council has had a<br />

focus on balancing costs and<br />

meeting the desire of the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

community to ensure we are planning<br />

and providing for the future.<br />

We made $45 million of savings<br />

through the Long Term Plan process,<br />

with 85 per cent of the capital<br />

budget confirmed to spend on<br />

our essential water and transport<br />

infrastructure.<br />

All submissions to the Long<br />

Term Plan, the summary of<br />

submissions, statistics on the<br />

breakdown of responses and<br />

the councillors deliberations<br />

in making the Long Term Plan<br />

decisions, are publicly available on<br />

our website for anyone who wants<br />

to review what submissions were<br />

made or why the councillors made<br />

the decisions they made.<br />

Representation review<br />

For those who wonder why most<br />

ratepayers don’t vote in local<br />

body elections, a paragraph in the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> says it all: “During<br />

deliberations councillors generally<br />

followed the recommendations<br />

of council staff with no major<br />

projects cut from budgets”.<br />

A case of the tail wagging the<br />

dog? Perhaps we should be voting<br />

for council staff then?<br />

NZ’s most stolen car drives<br />

higher insurance premiums<br />

• By Mahvash Ikram<br />

SOME PEOPLE are paying<br />

nearly $3000 a year to insure<br />

their Toyota Aqua cars, with<br />

one insurer denying cover<br />

unless the vehicle has an<br />

immobiliser.<br />

The high price was because<br />

the Toyota Aqua is the most<br />

stolen car in the country, data<br />

from three insurance companies<br />

reveals.<br />

Cove Insurance says it is<br />

simply too much of a risk<br />

without an immobiliser.<br />

“That level of risk doesn’t<br />

work for anyone – the customer<br />

having the car stolen, us<br />

at Cove or our other customers<br />

paying higher premiums to<br />

cover it,” the company said.<br />

“We wanted a solution<br />

that would allow people to<br />

keep their cover in place at<br />

a reasonable price and an<br />

immobiliser solves the issue<br />

by dramatically reducing the<br />

risk.”<br />

But that was not enough to<br />

put off drivers from buying<br />

the fuel efficient cars.<br />

For 22-year-old software<br />

engineer Kian Jazayeri, buying<br />

a Toyota Aqua as his first car<br />

WORTH IT: Despite being New Zealand’s most stolen<br />

car, the Toyota Aqua is, for some people, still a good buy.<br />

was a no-brainer.<br />

“In Christchurch it’s very<br />

flat, so it’s basically the best<br />

place for the car and just one<br />

of the fuel savings that comes<br />

from it.<br />

“I’m only filling up fuel like<br />

$80 per month or even like<br />

$80 per month-and-a-half<br />

really.”<br />

He bought it second hand<br />

for $10,000.<br />

But what he saved in fuel,<br />

he paid for in his insurance<br />

premium.<br />

“I’m paying around $250<br />

per month for comprehensive<br />

and theft (insurance). I’m<br />

still wondering whether I<br />

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

should go with third party instead,<br />

just to save that money,”<br />

he said.<br />

AA Insurance head of motor<br />

claims Beau Paparoa said<br />

the high number of claims<br />

involving Aquas affected the<br />

owners’ premiums.<br />

He said while AA insurance<br />

encouraged its customers to<br />

install security features such<br />

as immobilisers, that would<br />

not reduce the premium.<br />

“Definitely that is one of<br />

many factors that will be<br />

built into considering what<br />

premiums we charge,” said<br />

Paparoa.<br />

“Our premiums are<br />

calculated across a number of<br />

other factors as well. We take<br />

a really close look at what the<br />

full cost of claims are and we<br />

want to make sure that we’re<br />

collecting enough money to be<br />

able to pay for those claims.”<br />

AMI Insurance data also<br />

showed the Toyota Aqua had<br />

been the most stolen car for<br />

two years running.<br />

Favio Nazareno and his<br />

girlfriend bought their Aqua<br />

in 2023. Within <strong>12</strong> months,<br />

their insurance premium went<br />

up by nearly 25 per cent from<br />

$946 to $1180.<br />

The insurance company<br />

told them the increase was<br />

influenced by a range of<br />

factors – including location,<br />

type of car, number and types<br />

of claims.<br />

But Nazareno said those<br />

factors had not changed in the<br />

year he owned the car.<br />

Despite the theft data,<br />

Paparoa said the Toyota Aqua<br />

was a good buy.<br />

“They’re a pretty cool car<br />

actually, economical and the<br />

right price range for a lot of<br />

people.”<br />

Home side advantage for Waihora<br />

in repeat of last year’s semi-final<br />

• By Sam Coughlan<br />

WAIHORA ARE eyeing revenge<br />

in this weekend’s combined<br />

country semi-final.<br />

The side came away from their<br />

quarter-final against Methven<br />

on Saturday with a 16-13<br />

victory, setting up a clash with<br />

Prebbleton, who beat Ashburton<br />

Celtic 20-3.<br />

Prebbleton beat Waihora in the<br />

combined country semi-final and<br />

the Coleman Shield final last year.<br />

Waihora coach Hagen Schulte<br />

said it was a rematch they’d been<br />

hoping for since the start of the<br />

season.<br />

“The boys are already pretty<br />

fizzed to get another crack at<br />

them in the same situation this<br />

year.<br />

“If we were looking at anyone<br />

that we wanted to play in the<br />

semi-final, collectively we wanted<br />

to play Prebbleton again, so we<br />

couldn’t be happier.”<br />

The difference between last<br />

year’s clashes and Saturday’s is<br />

Waihora will be on home turf at<br />

Rhodes Park, courtesy of having<br />

topped their pool.<br />

Schulte said it would be a boost<br />

as his side looks to make their<br />

first combined country final<br />

since 2018, when they won the<br />

competition.<br />

Principals critical of ‘elitist’ proposal<br />

to exclude combined first XV sides<br />

• By Adam Burns<br />

A BID TO exclude combined<br />

schools’ first XV rugby<br />

teams from the Canterbury<br />

competition’s top grade is<br />

“elitist”, says Darfield High<br />

School principal Andy England.<br />

The schoolboy competition<br />

has proposed combined teams<br />

from Canterbury schools who<br />

do not have enough players to<br />

field a whole team only play in<br />

the lower championship division<br />

from next year.<br />

England said<br />

no explanation<br />

or rationale had<br />

been provided<br />

for the move.<br />

“I believe<br />

there may be an<br />

elitist element to<br />

it, whether it’s<br />

intentional or<br />

Andy<br />

England<br />

not, the effect is elitist,” he said.<br />

“The teams remaining will<br />

all be boys’ schools, or private<br />

schools and yes you could argue<br />

other schools could get there but<br />

it makes it extremely hard.”<br />

Darfield High, alongside<br />

Rolleston College, Lincoln High<br />

School and Ellesmere College,<br />

feed into the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Schools<br />

Combined first XV, the only<br />

combined side in this year’s<br />

premiership grade. They have<br />

lost all three games this season.<br />

Christchurch Boys’ High<br />

School headmaster Nic Hill<br />

echoed England’s thoughts<br />

and said the plan to exclude<br />

combined teams showed some<br />

schools were putting “reputation<br />

and marketing” ahead of the<br />

UNCERTAIN: Under proposed new rules for Canterbury Rugby’s schoolboy competition, the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Schools combined first XV would be excluded from the premiership division.<br />

best interests of<br />

students.<br />

“It’s 100 per<br />

cent elitism,” he<br />

said.<br />

“We want<br />

a game that<br />

creates decent<br />

humans, it Nic Hill<br />

shouldn’t be a<br />

marketing tool.”<br />

The move is part of a set<br />

of proposed changes to the<br />

competition after administrators<br />

set up a working group to review<br />

its structure and format.<br />

The Miles Toyota competition<br />

includes teams from South and<br />

Mid Canterbury, Canterbury,<br />

and Tasman. It is split into two<br />

competitions, a premiership and<br />

championship.<br />

Some of the participating<br />

schools include Nelson College,<br />

Christchurch Boys’ High<br />

School, Christ’s College, St<br />

Bede’s College and St Andrew’s<br />

College.<br />

Nearly 100 All Blacks have<br />

been educated at these schools<br />

alone.<br />

The competition is<br />

administered by the Canterbury<br />

Rugby Union (CRU) but is<br />

mostly run and governed by the<br />

schools themselves.<br />

“What’s really disappointing<br />

is that we’ve created a model<br />

which allows more equitable<br />

access to the best level of rugby,<br />

and it’s not being allowed for<br />

some really unknown reason,”<br />

England said.<br />

Hill said it was ultimately<br />

a case of self-interest for the<br />

decision-makers.<br />

“There’s been this arms race<br />

in schoolboy rugby for too long<br />

and it has not been healthy.<br />

“In Christchurch, significant<br />

schools do not have first XV<br />

programmes anymore simply<br />

because of private school<br />

scholarships.”<br />

England said schools in rural<br />

areas would continue to lose<br />

students needlessly to the bigger<br />

Christchurch schools.<br />

“That means for those families<br />

uprooting, it means finding the<br />

money to enable that to happen,”<br />

he said.<br />

“And that means they don’t<br />

continue rugby within their own<br />

community and continue with<br />

their own friends and whānau<br />

around them.<br />

“It gives another message<br />

that you have to move to these<br />

schools in order to get what you<br />

want.”<br />

In a statement, the CRU said<br />

participating schools selected<br />

a working group “representing<br />

the views and opinions of all<br />

schools” following the 2023<br />

competition.<br />

The group then reviewed the<br />

competition’s “structure, format,<br />

and governance”.<br />

“This review sought feedback<br />

from the principals (or their<br />

nominees) of the schools<br />

currently involved in the<br />

competition.<br />

“All decisions were made<br />

based on the majority views of<br />

the principals and not based on<br />

the views of any individual in<br />

the working group.<br />

“As a result of this thorough<br />

review, a set of competition<br />

guidelines has been proposed<br />

for the 2025 competition and<br />

beyond.”<br />

The CRU said the proposed<br />

changes were still under review,<br />

and were subject to “ongoing<br />

consultation, ensuring that all<br />

principals are informed and<br />

involved in the process”.<br />

“Canterbury Rugby’s intention<br />

is to ensure quality experiences<br />

for all participants in all grades<br />

across the region.”<br />

Bowling club celebrates service, success<br />

LINCOLN Bowling club has<br />

honoured its long-serving former<br />

treasure with a life membership.<br />

Jenny Kelly was awarded a life<br />

membership at the club’s annual<br />

meeting for the outstanding contribution<br />

she has made, acknowledging<br />

her 14 years of dedication<br />

to the treasurer role, which she<br />

stepped down from in 2023.<br />

The dedication and<br />

commitment Jenny showed to the<br />

role was reflected in the financial<br />

position of the club.<br />

During her tenure, the club put<br />

in an artificial green which<br />

involved a big financial<br />

commitment. The club is now<br />

debt free and the current assets<br />

have increased remarkably during<br />

her time as treasurer, as has the<br />

net worth of the club.<br />

Kelly has also achieved on the<br />

green. She was a member of the<br />

championship fours team in 2011-<br />

<strong>12</strong> and also had success in the<br />

championship triples in 2022-23<br />

and 2023-24.<br />

Lincoln also elected Gavin<br />

Eastwick as the club’s new<br />

DEDICATED: Jenny Kelly<br />

was made a life member of<br />

Lincoln Bowling Club.<br />

president, while Dave Kelly was<br />

elected as secretary.<br />

The club also tasted success at<br />

the Bowls Canterbury prizegiving<br />

over the weekend.<br />

Certificates were awarded to the<br />

over-60s 5s Lincoln Black team<br />

for winning division 1 and the<br />

Lincoln White team for winning<br />

division 7.<br />

In the under 5s triples, the team<br />

of Steven Bryce, Simon Moriarty<br />

and Dave Foskett won their<br />

WINNERS: Development players Jayne McKay and Jane Anderson both picked up awards<br />

at the Bowls Canterbury prizegiving.<br />

section in division 1 and then won<br />

the playoffs to be the division 1<br />

champions.<br />

Two of the club’s development<br />

players also tasted success at the<br />

awards with fourth-year bowler<br />

Jayne McKay named Bowls<br />

Canterbury development women<br />

winner, and Jane Anderson, a<br />

third year bowler, presented with<br />

the most improved player of the<br />

year award.

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

Penney’s future in hands of his players<br />

Bevan Sisson<br />

Rugby matters<br />

I AM OF an age where you were<br />

sent home with a report card that<br />

needed to be signed off by your<br />

parents. Regular comments on<br />

mine were: “Needs to try harder<br />

– easily distracted C–.”<br />

What would Rob Penney’s<br />

report card mention after the<br />

<strong>2024</strong> Super Rugby season?<br />

Penney played his club rugby<br />

for the mighty Burnside team<br />

before playing more than 100<br />

games for Canterbury.<br />

He then turned out for Marlborough,<br />

before embarking on a<br />

coaching career which involved<br />

roles as Crusaders assistant coach<br />

in 2005, Canterbury head coach,<br />

NZ U20s, Munster in Ireland, the<br />

Shining Arcs in Japan, then the<br />

Waratahs, back to Japan and now<br />

at the Crusaders for <strong>2024</strong>.<br />

The last few months would<br />

no doubt have been his most<br />

challenging; arriving back to a<br />

province he has deep connections<br />

with, and also a public which<br />

doesn’t take losing easily.<br />

With a well-documented injury<br />

list and high profile players gone<br />

to greener pastures, it didn’t<br />

exactly create the perfect start.<br />

ROUGH START: After a debut Super Rugby season to forget, questions are being asked about<br />

Crusaders coach Rob Penney’s future with the franchise.<br />

PHOTO: GETTY<br />

But injuries and retirements<br />

are part of the game and other<br />

franchises were similarly hit.<br />

One factor to consider is the<br />

coaching set-up.<br />

It is important a coaching<br />

group has a similar philosophy<br />

regarding selections, game plans,<br />

and culture. That’s why the likes<br />

of Joe Schmidt added Mike Cron<br />

to the Australian set up; Tony<br />

Brown stayed loyal to Jamie<br />

Joseph and Scott Robertson has<br />

surrounded himself with coaches<br />

he knows and trusts.<br />

Once you have created a<br />

coaching and management<br />

group, you tend to take them<br />

with you as you progress.<br />

Penney stepped into a coaching<br />

group like an arranged marriage.<br />

Already locked in were Dan<br />

Perrin, James Marshall, Matt<br />

Todd and Tamati Ellison, who<br />

has been part of the Crusaders<br />

set-up since 2021.<br />

Did that combination click?<br />

With the added pressure of<br />

HAVE YOUR SAY:<br />

Share your opinion on<br />

Sisson’s views. Email<br />

barry@starmedia.kiwi<br />

Keep responses to 200<br />

words or less<br />

losing, did it create some internal<br />

finger pointing which then added<br />

to the lack of cohesion?<br />

Teams pick up when not all<br />

is right within the management<br />

group and small cliques can<br />

develop as players back their<br />

favourites.<br />

When the Crusaders board<br />

meet to do their inevitable report<br />

and discuss the look of the next<br />

few years, the player reviews<br />

will be paramount to how long<br />

Penney calls Rugby Park home.<br />

If the players’ leadership group<br />

highlight a concern with regard<br />

to selection strategies, game plan<br />

confusion, and a fractured culture,<br />

then his time is done.<br />

If it shows the coaching group<br />

is in sync with each other, the<br />

atmosphere was great and it was<br />

just a on-off year with a number<br />

of outside factors, then he stays.<br />

Does Penney deserve to see out<br />

his contract? I believe so.<br />

Aside from Ellison, who is<br />

spoken highly of within the<br />

playing group and is respected<br />

enough that Robertson<br />

added him to the All Black<br />

management team, Penney<br />

should pick his own coaching<br />

set up and re-advertise the other<br />

assistant roles.<br />

If he believes the group he has<br />

is the one for him, then great.<br />

They can move forward. If, deep<br />

down, he knows they didn’t click<br />

then he should be allowed to<br />

move them on.<br />

At the end of the day it’s his<br />

name in the headlines so he deserves<br />

to control his own destiny.<br />

My report card rating for<br />

Penney: C+. Has room for<br />

improvement.<br />

Your guide to all things Real Estate<br />

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

The smell of<br />

success!<br />

Selling your house involves more than<br />

just furniture arrangement and wellpositioned<br />

decor; how your home smells<br />

can significantly impact potential buyers’<br />

impressions. When your home is more<br />

closed-up during winter, here are some<br />

strategies to make your house smell fresh<br />

and inviting.<br />

Clean everything thoroughly, especially<br />

carpets, curtains, and upholstery, as they<br />

can trap odours. Consider using a steam<br />

cleaner for a deeper clean.<br />

Find and eliminate the source of<br />

unpleasant odours, including the fridge,<br />

waste disposal, and rubbish bins. Run a<br />

lemon through the waste disposal unit,<br />

remove old food from the fridge, and clean<br />

the interior with baking soda and water.<br />

Wash any pet bedding and ensure litter<br />

boxes are clean and odour-free.<br />

Ventilation is an easy way to freshen<br />

surroundings. Open windows and doors<br />

to let fresh air circulate throughout your<br />

home. Use fans to help air circulate,<br />

especially in bathrooms and kitchens<br />

where moisture can create strong smells.<br />

Help to remove moisture by using a<br />

dehumidifier. Ensure all towels are dry<br />

before putting them away, and hang bath<br />

mats to dry after use.<br />

The old trick of baking before a showing<br />

is still an effective way of creating a<br />

homely and welcoming atmosphere.<br />

Consider baking bread or biscuits or<br />

warming some vanilla extract in the oven<br />

to provide a tempting smell.<br />

Use plants as natural air purifiers.<br />

Certain houseplants, like peace lilies<br />

and snake plants, can help purify the air<br />

by absorbing toxins and releasing fresh<br />

oxygen.<br />

Don’t go overboard with scents.<br />

Cleaning products with natural scents like<br />

citrus or lavender can help to leave a fresh<br />

smell. However, flowers can do double<br />

duty by adding a subtle fragrance and<br />

being an attractive décor item. You can<br />

also use essential oil diffusers with scents<br />

that are not overpowering. If you prefer<br />

your home to have no smell, look for<br />

odour neutralisers that don’t add a scent.<br />

Another natural deodoriser and quick<br />

fix before potential buyers arrive is to<br />

simmer a pot of water with citrus slices,<br />

fresh herbs, or cinnamon sticks. This can<br />

quickly create a subtle aroma in your<br />

home.<br />

Follow these steps to create a welcoming<br />

environment for potential buyers and<br />

ensure your home smells fresh and<br />

inviting. A pleasant-smelling home<br />

will indicate cleanliness and care and<br />

potentially attract a buyer with its positive<br />

atmosphere.<br />

Focus for Future - Environmental<br />

Short Film Competition<br />

Lincoln Envirotown Trust<br />

is again urging everyone<br />

to take up their phones<br />

and cameras to start<br />

production of a short film<br />

that showcases an issue of<br />

interest or importance in our<br />

environment.<br />

This competition had taken<br />

place annually for many years<br />

but making a film each year is a<br />

difficult undertaking, so this is<br />

now a biannual event. In these<br />

films we see different aspects<br />

Focus for Future Film Matt Coffey film through the<br />

eyes of Te Waihora -Winner2022<br />

of people’s environmental<br />

concerns. The competition is open<br />

to everyone and attracts both groups<br />

and individuals of all ages.<br />

It was last run in 2022 and was<br />

won by an excellent film in the open<br />

adults’ category which powerfully<br />

examined the deterioration of<br />

Lake Waihora. There is something<br />

for everyone as all films receive a<br />

prize.<br />

At the “Oscar like” awards<br />

evening where all films are viewed,<br />

it is always very clear that<br />

the production teams<br />

have experienced a<br />

great deal of enjoyment<br />

from their hard work<br />

and creativity. There<br />

are category prizes as<br />

well as the overall Kea<br />

Trophy for the best<br />

film of the year. This<br />

celebratory occasion<br />

will take place at Te<br />

Ara Atea, Rolleston<br />

where the excellent technology makes for<br />

an enjoyable viewing experience.<br />

So please everyone, start planning<br />

and filming to “FOCUS FOR<br />

FUTURE”. The closing date is in late<br />

August with the Awards evening in<br />

September.<br />

Public Notice<br />

Situations Vacant<br />

<strong>2024</strong> UPPER AHAURA-NANCY AERIAL<br />

POSSUM CONTROL OPERATION<br />

Vector Free Marlborough (VFM) wishes to advise the public of its intention to aerially apply the toxin<br />

Sodium fluoroacetate (1080) to the Upper Ahaura-Nancy area for the purpose of controlling possums. The<br />

Upper Ahaura-Nancy operation is being carried out on behalf of OSPRI as part of its TBfree New Zealand<br />

programme, which aims to eradicate bovine tuberculosis from wildlife vectors that pose a risk to farmed<br />

cattle and deer.<br />

Description of Area<br />

The northern boundary of the <strong>2024</strong> Upper Ahaura-Nancy operational permission area extends from the<br />

vicinity of Clarke River/Paddys Creek, with the southern western boundary bordering Inchbonnie and the<br />

Taramakau River. The western edge of the operational area is bounded by Lake Brunner Road, Bell Hill Road,<br />

Haupiri Road, and Ahaura Kopara Road. Mount Baron is the extreme eastern point of the operational area.<br />

Public Access & Recreational Facilities<br />

Public access to tracks and DOC facilities will be restricted while the aerial application of toxic bait takes<br />

place and afterwards until they have been inspected and cleared of most toxic baits.<br />

DOC huts identified in the permission area are Camp Creek Hut, Cone Creek Hut, Lake Morgan Hut, Waikiti<br />

Hut, Tutaekuri Hut, and Slaty Creek Hut.<br />

The following tracks have been identified as being in the permission area Camp Creek Route, Crooked River<br />

Route (to Jacko Flat Hut, Top Crooked Hut), Brian O’Lyn Route, Hope Pass Route, Amuri Pass Route, Waikiti<br />

Route, Evans River – Granite Creek Route, and Granite Creek Route – Rough and Tumble Creek.<br />

Toxin warning signs will be in place at all track entrances immediately prior to the application of toxic bait.<br />

Advisory signage will also be installed at key sites prior to non-toxic prefeed application.<br />

Commencement Date<br />

Subject to favourable weather, control is planned to commence anytime from 1 July <strong>2024</strong>, with the aerial<br />

application of non-toxic, cereal pre-feed pellets. This will be followed approximately 7-10 days later by the<br />

aerial application of bait containing biodegradable sodium fluoroacetate (1080).<br />

All work is weather dependent, and commencement may be later than indicated. In the event of an<br />

extended delay, further notices will be placed to advise the public.<br />

Bait Description<br />

Aerial control using 1080:<br />

• Pre-feed - Non-toxic cereal-based pellet, approximately 16 mm long, cinnamon-lured, and non-dyed<br />

(sandy coloured).<br />

• Toxic bait - Cereal-based pellet, approximately 16 mm long, cinnamon-lured, and dyed green with a<br />

toxic loading of 0.15% Sodium fluoroacetate (1080).<br />

The aerial operation will use helicopters equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS) hardware and<br />

calibrated buckets to ensure accurate placement.<br />

Precautions<br />

The pesticide is poisonous to humans and domestic animals. The public are reminded of the danger that<br />

toxic baits and possum carcasses pose, particularly to children and dogs.<br />

• DO NOT TOUCH OR EAT BAITS<br />

• Children must be kept under strict supervision in the control area.<br />

• Dogs must be kept under strict control at all times and not have access to, or be taken into, the control<br />

area, as they are particularly susceptible to harm from contact with toxic baits and poisoned carcasses.<br />

The risk that poisoned carcasses pose to dogs may extend downstream of the control area.<br />

• Toxin warning signs will be installed at main public entry points and the public are reminded that it is an<br />

offence to remove this warning signage. Please follow the instructions on the signs.<br />

• Game animals should not be sold or taken for eating from within or adjacent to this area until it is<br />

declared clear of pesticides.<br />

If you suspect poisoning<br />

Contact your local hospital, or dial 111<br />

National Poisons Centre 0800 POISON - 0800 764 766<br />

In the case of a domestic animal being poisoned, contact a local veterinarian<br />

funding, and the remaining 80% comes from<br />

the generous support of the Canterbury<br />

community.

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 />

THE OWNER of the<br />

Prebbleton Dairy targeted<br />

four times by youth believes a<br />

family group conference was a<br />

waste of time.<br />

The meeting involved one<br />

of the teens, a 13-year-old,<br />

his family, Oranga Tamariki,<br />

police and four other victims,<br />

including another dairy<br />

owner.<br />

Facilitated by Oranga<br />

Tamariki, youth justice family<br />

group conferences are<br />

intended to help youth take<br />

responsibility and leave them<br />

with a plan for the future.<br />

While the victims could<br />

speak a the meeting, Sangeet<br />

Mehta said the decision had<br />

already been made as to what<br />

would happen with the youth.<br />

The victim’s views did not<br />

make a difference.<br />

Money<br />

taken<br />

after big<br />

pokie win<br />

• By Ba ry Clarke<br />

A BAR patron who won $<strong>12</strong>00<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 />

And more and more gardeners<br />

are taking a natural and organic<br />

approach to gardening. This<br />

means less chemicals and more<br />

be beneficial to grow nex 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 />

Marigolds are said to deter<br />

aphids from tomatoes and roses,<br />

Only last year the Government took an<br />

unprecedented step to pu the performance of<br />

Greyhound Racing New Zealand ‘on notice’, indicating<br />

tha the industry would be measured based on key<br />

performance indicators and a decision would be made<br />

in the coming months. The SPCA is now asking where<br />

are these indicators and what are they measuring?<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 />

Incorporating show homes<br />

in your planning process<br />

There are many things to think about when you’re<br />

considering building a new home.<br />

Browsing show homes is a fantastic way<br />

to get you thinking about practicalities,<br />

needs, aesthetics and your wish list! Here<br />

are a few consideration’s to help spark your<br />

planning process.<br />

• What is your exterior style? What kind<br />

of homes do you like? Look around and<br />

take a mental note of what you are drawn<br />

to most.<br />

• What kind of exterior materials do you<br />

like? Once you’ve worked out the look<br />

you like, research what materials are<br />

available and find out about durability.<br />

• How will you use your house? It’s<br />

important to most people to have a good<br />

indoor/outdoor flow and attractive,<br />

sheltered outdoor living. Imagine your<br />

home in various seasons.<br />

• Landscaping is important. Look around<br />

and consider what you like and don’t like.<br />

Are you a structured formal garden type<br />

or do you like a contemporary native<br />

style?<br />

• Sustainability and future-proofing<br />

aren’t just buzzwords anymore. It’s<br />

very important for your new home to<br />

be environmentally friendly. Research<br />

insulation requirements, solar hot water<br />

heating, ventilation options and new<br />

technology to ensure your home will be<br />

affordable to run.<br />

• Interior décor is really exciting. This is<br />

where show homes can really help you get<br />

to know current trends, colours, beautiful<br />

furnishings and furniture. Collect home<br />

magazines and figure out what you’d love<br />

to emulate.<br />

• Also, pause to give thought to<br />

architectural components inside. Do you<br />

remember a raised ceiling? What kind of<br />

finishing do top homes use and which<br />

styles are you drawn to?<br />

• Heating is also a consideration. Have a<br />

look at what show homes are offering.<br />

• Kitchens form the heart of the house.<br />

Show homes give you insight into the<br />

latest styles, materials and storage<br />

facilities available.<br />

• Bathrooms are another big component.<br />

They need to be as luxurious as you can<br />

make them, so start dreaming.<br />

Kitchens form the heart<br />

of the house. Show<br />

homes give you insight<br />

into the latest styles,<br />

materials and storage<br />

facilities available.<br />
