E-scooters approved for six-month trial on Selwyn streets

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The Selwyn District Council has adopted a new traffic and parking bylaw that allows up to 250 Lime and Lava e-scooters to be used on the streets of Rolleston, Lincoln and Prebbleton from Thursday.

The council voted in October to allow the trial, but changes had to be made to the bylaw first to make it legal for the e-scooters to be used and parked on Selwyn streets.

Under the conditions of the trial licence, the e-scooters will be allowed to operate in Rolleston, Lincoln and Prebbleton, and to travel between the towns using cycle lanes.

Reduced speed limits will be in place for council reserves, and near halls and community centres. The e-scooters will not be allowed in council cemeteries.

Stainless Steel Pegs

Maria from Leeston

Guess what!!!

We are teaming up with My Vita Bag again to help raise funds for our Baby and Toddler Bundles team who are in need of storage cupboards and consumables to put in the bundles, such as wipes, nappies, breastpads, toothbrushes, nappy creams etc.

We are selling reusable fresh produce bags that come in a set of 2 large bags (25x30cm) and 2 small bags (20x25cm) for $13 with 35% of each purchase going straight to us!

These reusable bags are waste free, marine safe, machine washable and, best yet, they are breathable, which will help keep your produce fresher in the fridge.

We also have on offer a 20 pack of reusable stainless steel pegs (that won't rust!). These are $22 a pack with 32% going straight to us.

These reusable stainless steel pegs are little but extremely strong and will last a life time. They are soft on fabrics with no sharp edges and, best yet, they come in their own reusable bag made of sustainable materials.

If you would like to order these today, please give us a message to find out how.

Thank you for your support.
