RATEPAYERS are no closer to knowing if the Selwyn
District Council will get behind the Hoskyns Road cottage
The council is calling for the community to help make the
A report at Wednesday's council meeting regarding the
Hoskyns Road Cottage was left on the table'' as several
councillors raised concerns on the level of community inter-
est in the project.
Rolleston-based builder Russell Lilley has offered to gift
the cottage to the Rolleston community for relocation or sell
off a small section of land at 40 Hoskyns Road to the
The report's recommendation to compile a database of
places of cultural and heritage interest beyond those listed
in the district plan and indicate an interest in acquiring the
Hoskyns Road property was not carried.
Council have asked for further investigation but have
requested a comparative heritage assessment be carried
out after the initial report identified a second site of inter-
est on the council owned Rolleston Recreation Precinct site.
Councillor Pat McEvedy said he applauded projects that
preserve the history of the region but said past projects
have been undertaken in response to pressure from the
He said council needed the support of its community for
a project such as the cottage and wondered who was going
to be doing the restoring and looking after the cottage.
I'm happy to support it but it needs community support
and there doesn't see to be anyone supporting it at this
Deputy mayor Sarah Walters was another to raise con-
cerns about the level of community interest in the project.
Cr Walters said she was not aware of any community
Cr McEvedy said projects like Hoskyns Road were a
really tough business''.
You've really got to have some people who are prepared
to do some hard yards.''
His statement was backed up by Cr Malcolm Lyall, who
was involved with restoring a cottage of similar vintage to
Hoskyns Road in Prebbleton.
He said such projects need to be driven by individuals as
it is a long slog''.
When the report comes back to council the level of com-
munity community support is likely to be debated again.

DOUBLE DELIGHTS: Members of
the two Rolleston School teams
with their certificates.
TWO SELWYN early childhood cen-
tres and a primary school have had
their design talents recognised.
Prime Minister John Key presented
the Amazing Place Playground compe-
tition awards at a ceremony in the
Geodome in Christchurch last week.
The competition was formulated by
agencies looking at how to re-engage
the children of Canterbury in the
rebuild of their city.
Ideas from the competition will be
used for a new children's playground
to be built in the city.
Children were asked to create the
best playground in the world'' that
was a safe place to play.
Members of the Selwyn Central
Community Board and the Malvern
Community Board attended the pres-
entation and congratulated all the Sel-
wyn groups on their well-deserved
Lincoln's Kidsfirst Kindergarten

A team effort that the whole centre
was involved in, Lincoln put together

Also in the early childhood category,

highly commended award.
Rolleston School was the third Sel-
wyn school to be recognised with two
awards in the year five category.
Jacob Pierson, James Patterson,
Liam Egan, Kaeden Rudolph-
O'Donnell, Hayden Perriam and Oli-

place for their efforts and Abbey Hen-
derson, Max Mitchell and Syme Gueco
won a highly commended award.
Selwyn Central Community Board
member Jenny Williams said the stan-
dard of all three Selwyn award
winners was outstanding.
Selwyn House were the win-
ners of the year six competition
for their Margaret Mahy-themed
playground. The judges were so
impressed by the design, the new
playground will be named after
the late author.
