match

• By Jacob Page

THE CHANCES of Darfield

hosting the Crusaders and

Highlanders pre-season game next

year appears unlikely.

The Darfield Rugby Club hosted

the summer fixture in 2017 and

wants to do so again.

But the Canterbury Rugby Football

Union’s insistence a spectator

mound be constructed has proven

an issue.

Darfield president Scott McIlroy

said constructing a mound on the

ground is not viable due to summer

sport use.

“The ground itself is not viable to

host the game and I have looked at

other options including farmland

where a mound already exists but

that too will be expensive,” he said.

More than 5500 people turned

up to watch the 2017 match, including

then-Prime Minister Bill

English.

Minutes from the Malvern

Community Board meeting last

week showed Selwyn Mayor Sam

Broughton was told the CRFU

“would not consider viewing from

a flat-level surface acceptable.”

Mr McIlroy says he had previously

looked into building a 4000

seat temporary stand but at a cost

of more than $100,000, it was

considered uneconomic.

from the editor’s desk

IT WAS a fairly busy weekend around

the traps for that sprightly rugby side, the

Lincoln Lizards.

Ron Fabian (our photo on the front

page) still has the style and balance to slice

through a weakness in the defence, while on page 6 Andy Kitson

showed he might not be out of place in a more competitive grade

when he whistled by former Australian test player Stephen

Larkham.

There’s been a bit of criticism about the Golden Oldies

tournament over the past month in terms of whether it delivered

on the economic promises to Canterbury.

But for the Lizards and other like-minded teams, I hear it was

a pretty good event, both on and off the field.

A grouse old time, so to speak.

Slim chance of chlorination U-turn

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE CHANCES of the district

council back-tracking on its

plans to permanently chlorinate

water supplies in Malvern are

likely to be slim.

But residents are being encouraged

to

make as many

submissions

as possible

to try and

change the

district council’s

mind.

More than

Sam

Broughton

100 people

turned out to a

public meeting

OPPOSITION: More than 100 people have attended a public

meeting in Glentunnel in a bid to fight against the permanent

chlorination of water supplies in parts of Malvern. ​

in Glentunnel last week to fight

against the permanent chlorination

of water supplies in parts of

Malvern.

The meeting was attended

by the district council’s asset

manager Murray Washington,

Mayor Sam Broughton and district

councillor Bob Mugford.

The district council confirmed

permanent chlorination of the

Sheffield-Waddington and Malvern

Hills Hartleys Road water

supplies will start in July and

August.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

while it is the district council’s

intention introduce chlorination,

the decision is not entirely

a closed book.

“We are open to hear the

views of the community and

if there are other ways of providing

the public safety that

chlorination provides then we

will listen to those submissions,”

he said.

But the meeting’s organiser

Brian Thompson said it appears

the councillors have made up

their mind and a lot of people

are “up in arms” over the decision.

He said residents spoke at the

meeting about the current chlorination

in the scheme which

was causing sore throats, rashes

and eczema.

The water supplies were temporarily

chlorinated in March

after E. coli was detected in the

water supply networks.

Whitecliffs resident Liz Weir,

who chaired the meeting said

there was an overwhelming

dissatisfaction with the proposal

and almost everyone attending

the meeting wanted the council

to reverse its decision.

“Ratepayers expressed the

view that it would be preferable

to “fix” the system, rather than

chlorinate perfectly good, potable

water.

The question of the cost necessary

to upgrade the system was

posed at the meeting, but there

was no definitive answer from

council.

Mr Thompson said if the

district council does not revisit

their decision it is likely more

meetings will be held.

Councils are awaiting a decision

from the Government on

whether all council-owned

water supplies will be required

to be chlorinated as a result of

the Havelock North Drinking

Water Inquiry.

Mr Broughton said while he

has been told the decision is

“imminent”, that does not tell

him when it will happen.

Headaches are not normal

In today’s fast paced world,

headaches are a normal ailment we

just have to put up with or we can

gloss over by taking a pill or a quick

nap. WRONG! Studies have shown

that roughly a third of all people suffer

from headaches. So yes they are

common, but no they are not normal.

A headache is considered pain

anywhere in the region of the head or

neck, caused by many different

conditions. The brain tissue itself is

not sensitive to pain as it lacks pain

receptors. Rather, the pain is caused

by disturbance of pain-sensitive

structures around the brain.

As many as 45 million people suffer

from chronic or severe headaches

that seriously interfere with their lives.

Signs and Symptoms

Headaches vary in intensity and have

different symptoms:

• Pain in the head

• Visual impairment (blurred vision)

• Nausea and vomiting

• Hearing impairment

• Confusion

• Discomfort

• Irritability

What causes headaches?

Spinal misalignment-nerve irritation/

interferences, certain foods,

toxic fumes, preservatives and

alcohol are all contributing factors to

headaches. Spinal misalignments are

shown to be involved in up to 80% of

all headaches.

Tension headaches are the most

common type of headache for both

adults and children. Triggers point

include lack of sleep, emotional

tension at home, work or school,

second-hand cigarette smoke,

skipped meals, poor nutrition, eye

strain and bright lights.

How Chiropractic helps

Your spine protects your nervous

system, which starts with the

brain and becomes the spinal cord.

Whenthe vertebrae in your neck are

unable to move properly, it irritates

or puts pressure on the nerves in that

area. This can cause headaches.

Chiropractic care addresses

the cause of many types of headaches

and therefore they are capable of

removing or dramatically reducing the

occurrence and frequency of these

headaches, because they are usually

due to what is called subluxations

in the spine. They achieve this by

performing Chiropractic adjustments

to remove pressure on the nerves,

which then also helps to improve

nerve function.

On a study conducted by the

government of New Zealand it found

that the majority of people who

suffered from spinal misalignments

had their headaches relieved or

their condition improved through

Chiropractic care.

Safeguard sought for airfield

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NEW RULES are likely to be

written into Selwyn’s district

plan to protect the West Melton

Aerodrome from future housing

development in the area.

Selwyn’s airfields, airstrips

and helicopter landing pads are

under examination as the district

plan review progresses.

It is further developing an

option to

provide more

comprehensive

rules around

pads.

As part of

the option, it has been agreed

further discussion is needed between

council staff and airfield

representatives over developing

specific provisions to apply to

the West Melton airfield.

District councillor Pat

McEvedy said the West Melton

Aerodrome would like to have a

special area zoned for them because

they are concerned about

the encroachment of houses and

getting noise complaints in the

future.

“If it is noted in the district

plan, then when development

occurs they will know there is

an airfield designated to operate

at certain times in that area,” he

said.

It is estimated the West

Melton population will grow to

2256 by 2025.

Mr McEvedy said he supports

the Canterbury Aero Club in

their application of their own

designated area and use.

airfields in Selwyn with the

other being the Springfield

Aerodrome operated by Canterbury

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the initial report presented to

the district plan committee did

not reflect the airfield’s importance.

He said it was the airfield used

by Prime Minster John Key after

the February 22, 2011, earthquake

when Christchurch International

Airport was closed.

“We believe that strategic

place of airport is worth something

to us and we want to make

sure we don’t undermine its importance

by not recognising it in

the district plan,” Mr Broughton

said.

As part of its decision, aircraft

facilities will continue to be

permitted but may be subject

to more comprehensive and

restrictive rules.

However, flights including

emergency, fire control, law

enforcement, seasonal farming

work, military aircraft movements

will remain a permitted

activity without needing to meet

certain standards.

Council planning manager

Jesse Burgess said there will

be multiple opportunities for

affected parties and the general

public to have input.

Consultation with

stakeholders and affected

landowners on the preferred

option has begun.

Public consultation on the

district plan will begin in July.

The new district plan is expected

to be operative by March

2022.

The Season of the Sleeves

it’s all about the sleeves this winter and sleeve detail

can be seen on all sorts of garments. Bell sleeves are a

major trend with plenty of variations. Knitwear with bell

or frill sleeves is also making an appearance as a new

trend. We are also seeing coatagins (Longline knits)

with bell type sleeves as well as coats.

Vests remain as strong as ever for this season and

work very well with the sleeves in that you

can add warmth but without hiding the

beautiful sleeve detail. Ponchos are also

right on trend and again work well with the

fabulous sleeves.

We have showcased the

fabulous wine coloured Jendi

knit ($125) with a grey ivyblu

Wynona skirt ($159).

Another pretty top with bell

sleeves is the pink floral

Augustine top ($159) which

our mannequin is wearing

with the new LTB jeans

($239).

Ketz- Ke have produced

a lovely warm winter dress

this season in coral with frill

detail on the sleeves. it is a

longer midi length which

pleases many, ($139). it

looks equally good dressed

up with nude or black

ivyblu are very well known for their pretty

tops and this wine coloured Roxy top is

it’s called Augustine

Students meet the stars

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A GROUP of Ellesmere College

students have met Prime

Minister Jacinda Ardern and

some of their sporting idols

Ten year 13 students and

two teachers travelled to

the Gold Coast to watch the

Commonwealth Games for

a physical education

assessment.

They were studying sports

issues and how the Commonwealth

Games impact New

Zealand society.

The students were staying at

QT Gold Coast hotel in Surfers

Paradise, where the ANZ New

Zealand House was , and where

most New Zealand supporters

were staying.

During their stay, the New

Zealand gold, silver and bronze

medallists and Ms Ardern visited

the hotel.

Year 13 student Mel Poole said

while she didn’t get the chance

to speak to Ms Ardern, she was

“lovely” and spoke to the crowd

at the hotel well.

She said Ms Ardern spoke

about how proud she was of the

athletes and how she thinks

working in politics and being an

athlete are similar.

But Ms Ardern said one thing

that is different is everyone

thinks they can do her job but

everyone knows they can’t do

what athletes do.

While she didn’t go into

FONTERRA SAYS it will be

drawing significantly less water

for its Darfield site when an

advanced plant is built.

Last month the Selwyn Times

reported on concerns from

Malvern Community deputy

chairman Kerry Pauling about

the affect on the Darfield water

supply from the Fonterra site.

The article failed to mention

a response from Fonterra in

which the company said it plans

to draw about 70 per cent less

water than it is now.

“Thanks to the new plant

we’ll save the equivalent of

around 100 tanker loads of

water every day,” said Robert

Spurway, head of Fonterra’s

global operations.

Construction is under way

on an advanced plant that will

reduce the amount of groundwater

extracted for Fonterra’s

Darfield manufacturing site by

around 70 per cent.

Darfield is already a worldleading

facility and the $11

million investment in water

processing technology will

have a significant impact on its

environmental footprint, said

Mr Spurway.

“As well as reducing water

use, the new technology also

use at its Darfield plant

decreases the amount of water

It’s a win-win situation.”

The new plant uses a reverse

osmosis technique to purify the

water extracted from cows’ milk

during the manufacturing process.

Water is passed through

a membrane filtration system

which makes it drinkable and

suitable for use in a range of onsite

activities such as cooling,

heating and cleaning.

The Darfield development

aligns with Fonterra’s six water

commitments to help improve

the quality of New Zealand’s

waterways.

Said Mr Spurway: “We’re

prioritising investment to

reduce water consumption. Last

year we announced our 2020

target to reduce the amount of

water we use across our 26 New

Zealand manufacturing sites by

20 per cent.

“The new plant will go a

significant way towards helping

us achieve our target, creating a

manufacturing site that’s more

self-sufficient.”

The new plant is expected to

be up and running by October,

in time for the 2018/2019 milk

season.

Protecting Lake Lyndon

Waimakariri

Environment

and Recreation

Trust member

Nick Ledgard

writes about a

new fence at

Lake Lyndon to

protect turflands along the

waterline

VISITORS TO Lake Lyndon over

the last year will have noticed a

new fence around its shores.

It was put up to protect rare

ephemeral turflands present at

the lake’s waterline, which were

being threatened by vehicles

being driven too close to the

water’s edge. Other changes are

likely in the near future as a

result of the current development

of a recreation and ecological

management plan for the lake

and its watershed.

Lake Lyndon is the closest

large natural body of fresh water

to Christchurch and, as such, has

attracted increasing attention

over the past five to 10 years.

There is some concern that

recreational activities are having

a significant impact on the

natural values of the lake and the

surrounding area. Currently, in

spite of its easy public access and

high amenity and conservation

values, there is little formal

management of the lake, its

KEEP OUT: A fence has been installed at Lake Lyndon to

protect rare ephemeral turflands.

biodiversity and the recreational

activities. Hence the need for a

management plan.

Claire Newell, a professional

ecologist living at Springfield,

will be the plan’s main author.

“I have driven past the lake

many hundreds of times and

watched the area move from

leasehold grazed land into public

ownership, where all types of

recreation are currently being

undertaken,” Dr Newell said.

She said while she welcomes

the increased public use, it is

vital that recreation is developed

and managed in a way that is

compatible with the long-term

sustainability of the natural

ecosystems and endangered

species in the area. That is the

purpose of the plan.

Dr Newell is a trustee of the

Waimakariri Environment and

Recreation Trust. The trust is an

end-user group which has been

set up to support the Department

of Conservation with recreation

and environment needs in the

upper Waimakariri area.

Over the past 18 months, the

trust’s efforts have focused on

Lake Lyndon.

Pumpkin capers

• By Emily O’Connell

MAYORS, councillors and

contestants from across

Canterbury are comparing

pumpkins in a bid to raise

awareness for growing food and

water management.

Selwyn Waihora Water Zone

Committee chairman Allen Lim

challenged Selwyn Mayor Sam

Broughton, Christchurch City

Council Mayor Lianne Dalziel

and Ashburton District Council

Mayor Donna Favel to take

part in The People’s Pumpkin

Project.

The community-focused

project challenges participants

across the urban and rural sectors

to grow a pumpkin from a

seedling in a friendly competition

with each other.

Participants received their

seedling in November and the

competition has now finished.

Some Selwyn schools have

also taken part in the contest,

competing for cash prizes.

Mr Broughton planted his

pumpkin in a patch outside his

offices at the district council.

He’s pleased with his pumpkin

growth but admits he’s “no

pumpkin farmer.”

“It’s not embarrassingly small

but I’m not expecting to take out

the big prize,” Mr Broughton

said.

SPROUT: Selwyn Mayor

Sam Broughton is growing a

pumpkin in competition with

other mayors and councillors. ​

Mrs Favel is out of the running

as her pumpkin was sabotaged

last month by vandals.

Like Mrs Favel, Ms Dalziel

encountered bad luck in her

pumpkin-growing effort.

“It’s actually my second pumpkin

. . . my first was doing really,

really, really well until it exploded.

That’s why we had to plant

another one. I’m now at a distinct

disadvantage… just like my

pumpkin, I’m gutted,” she said.

Both of her pumpkins have

been grown in the Otakaro

Orchard.

Mr Lim said this was the first

year of the competition and he

hopes the project will be bigger

next year.

Readers respond to the

Selwyn Times’ article on

the district council’s plans

to permanently chlorinate

the Sheffield-Waddington

and Malvern Hills Hartleys

Rd water supplies

Julie Baker –We are on the

Malvern Hills Hartleys Rd water

supply. When I received the

letter from the council on this

subject I was very upset. We love

our Greendale water. It has no

smell and we have never had a

boil notice. I recently thought I

could smell chlorine in the water,

I phoned Murray England and

he told me that they had already

treated the water with emergency

powdered chlorine and that the

smell I was getting wouldn’t last

long. But it is still there and I

am so upset that the smell will

continue to be there forever. Mr

England said that it wouldn’t be

such a strong smell using the gas

chlorine that is planned. But the

water to me, is undrinkable now.

I had no idea that the council

were thinking of doing this. I

understand it is in the Long

Term Plan, but of course, if I’m

happy, I don’t go looking for

something to complain about. I

hope that someone high up in

the council can do something

about this.

Greg White – I live in Coalgate

and I have had no warning

letters or emails to say the water

changes are taking place. I would

agree with Glentunnel Township

Committee chairman Reg

Anderson’s quote. Thanks for the

efforts in getting this information

out there.

Panos Tsavousis – My view

on this is no. Why are there only

two options? And the way the

question is framed – it is chlorine

or E. coli. Christchurch has

chosen to chlorinate for a year

until the problem is fixed and

then stop using it. Why is that

not an option for us?

Bill Woods – So chlorination

is going to be mandatory as ultra

violet treatment is not residual,

but chlorination is. Who are

they trying to fool? Springfield

has been chlorinated from day

one (30+ years) and we get “boil

water” notices. To make matters

even worse they tell us they are

going to waste our money by

installing UV treatment in all

water supplies, even though it

has no purpose if water is chlorinated.

Russell Blackney – I am

totally against our water supply

being permanently chlorinated.

This should not happen and I

hope public support is strong

enough to halt this stupid idea in

its tracks.

Hamish Middleton – Residents

need to mooooooo’ve into

action to find out the real reason

chlorination is needed.

Jaed During – How can putting

chemicals in our drinking

water be safe? Greed of industry

has stuffed our rivers and the

environment and the solution

is to slowly poison the people,

while giving away their pure

water supply. The hypocrisy is

sickening.

Paul Hewett – Well Environment

Canterbury gave all the

nice water to the dairy farmers.

David Simons – It’s a cheap

way to not have to actually deal

with the water purity problem.

Stephanie Hagerty – And

so it starts. Wait and see how

long it will take all councils to do

the same.

Craig Orr – Drinking water

that no one will drink, how does

that work again?

Bella Huddleston – It

tastes awful.

Mel Chalmers – The smell is

so strong. It smells like a swimming

pool, it tastes gross. And

is making my skin very itchy.

Supermarkets will more than

likely see a rise in sales of bottled

water now.

Belinda Taylor – My daughter

has been drinking it from the

tap as she drinks heaps of water.

She forgot to get it through the

fridge filter, it was burning her

throat it’s that disgusting.

Margaret Gamblin – I just

buy bottled water until they stop

putting that chlorine in our water

supply, unfortunately, I still

have to shower in it.

Monique Opsomer – It is

disgusting.

Anthea Reynolds

responds to the Selwyn

Times’ article on plans to

build a pyrolysis processing

plant designed to break

down end-of-life tyres and

plastics in Burnham

The tyre recycling plant

sounds beneficial provided Eneform

Ltd do everything agreed

to in the resource consent. It

sounds better than allowing

leachate, and presumably there

will be employment for local

people. As it runs on its ownproduced

gas, it seems to be as

environmentally-friendly as we

are able to make it with current

knowledge and technology.

Gary Knight responds to

the Selwyn Times’ article

about a potential bylaw

aimed at cracking down on

mobile traders across the

district

Fire rages, homes at risk

Implementation of potential

bylaws aimed at regulation of

commercial activities in public

places must be approached

with a sense of reality. With the

increase to the existing status of

mobile food traders in the district

anomalies exist as to their future.

Having the common right law

to occupy public roads, but often

causing conflicting views from

existing restaurants and cafes

having financial overheads would

deem the passing of any civic bylaws

relating to this sensitive issue

be done with a sense of rationale.

Any legislature therefore while not

diminishing the rights of traders

must also ensure they do not encroach

path of right within close

proximity to established food

outlets, restaurants and

cafes.

Readers respond to the

Selwyn Times’ article on

plans to build another 25m

pool in the Selwyn Aquatic

Centre

Lynette Webber – The

proposed pool should be 50m,

not 25m. Rolleston is the town of

the future and the Selwyn district

is only going to continue to grow.

The district council needs to

think big and think long-term. It

is very short-sighted to only build

yet another 25m pool just as it

was short-sighted not to build a

bigger facility five years ago when

the pool was originally built. The

centre is a wonderful resource

that so many different members

of the community can use of all

ages. Let’s stand out as being a

progressive community, branching

out and doing what so many

other councils have not had the

future focus to do. A 50m done

right could be used for South Island

and national championships

not just Canterbury’s. Please get

it right this time and build a 50m

pool.

Cleve Prescott – The

Selwyn District Council’s Fast

Forward ’28 is a plan for the next

10 years. It could be up to four

years, if not longer, before we see

an improved pool. This being

the case, I don’t expect any of

our submissions to cause a delay

to the design and planning of

the new pool. Your submissions

are important for the Selwyn

district as a whole, Those saying

yes as well as the those saying no,

we all have an opinion, please

express it before Friday’s cut-off

date. Your council needs you to

tell them what you wish to see.

With information supplied in

the council information sheet,

they expect to issue 817 building

permits per year Selwyn-wide,

down from 1000 as it has been.

With three people to a house,

there will be 2451 new residents

each year, the high schools will

be at full capacity by then, along

with and increase in primary

school rolls. The military is

using the pool during the winter

period, with an increase in

training at the camp, we can

expect to see increased personnel

making use of the facilities. With

Jellie Park closed during the

winter months, there is no 50m

pool anywhere.

Readers respond to the

Selwyn Times’ article on

Falcoln’s Landing, a new

subdivision in Rolleston

featuring bird-themed

street names

Jennifer and Craufurd

Murray – What about street/

lane/crescent/avenue names

like Sparrowhawk, Goshawk,

Peregrine, Red Kite, Kestrel,

Harrier, Osprey, Merlin,

Morepork, Karearea (NZ Hawk),

Buzzard, Gyrfalcon, Eagle.

The developers could also use

associated words like Perlin,

Jess, Eyrie, Eaglet, Talon, Lure,

Hobby, Tercel, Eyas. We think

that names like Squawk are

ridiculous. Hope the developers

decide to re-think.

Julie Hide – It sounds as if

a group of people have made

an attempt at being “trendy.’’

Anything would steer me, and

many others, it seems, away

from the street and the subdivision.

Give Falcon’s Landing the

respectability it deserves. If the

council wishes to come up with

some interesting bird facts for

the basis of naming streets, why

not consult the Forest and Bird

society for suggestions?

Kaydee Francis – Hell no,

won’t be building there.

Hamish Middleton – We

pay these councillors – why?

Karin Brownlee – Squawk

St, change it to Scream Place.

Heather Stricke – Stupid.

On the right track

A new Diploma in Organic Agri-Food

Production is being offered through a

partnership with Christchurch’s Lincoln

University and the Biological Husbandry

Unit (BHU).

The one-year full time programme,

largely focused on the theory and practice of

organics, will commence in July. The course

will cover small business management,

plant and animal health, traditional and

cultural food growing techniques and

contemporary Māori enterprises with

a focus on small scale and urban food

production. The BHU Organics Trust,

established in 2001, brought together likeminded

specialists from Lincoln University

and the NZ Organic Movement.

BHU manager Bill Martin says people

are taking an active interest in the food

supply chain and as a result there is

increased demand for smaller scale

organic production. to supply

farmers’ markets, cafés and

restaurants.

“There are numerous social

enterprises popping up across

the country that are involved

in food production. I believe

this will add huge value to

society,” says Martin.

Cultivate Christchurch is

an example, creating urban

farms, clever composting and

encouraging growth of urban

produce. Chief executive

officer of Organics Aotearoa,

Brendan Hoare welcomes the

direction Lincoln University

is taking, maintaining organic production

is the fastest growing food industry globally.

BHU is dedicated to the science of

permanent and wholesystem agriculture

and horticulture. Its campus facilities

include an Organic Training College

focusing on crops, livestock and soil

management and a Future Farming Centre,

with a 10-hectare horticultural farm located

at Lincoln University. Students are actively

involved in the process of growing organic

fruit and vegetable crops, and encouraged

to facilitate business relationships at the

local markets. BHU and Lincoln’s Bio-

Protection Research Centre have also

teamed up with Kings Seeds to produce a

‘How does your garden grow’ kit, answering

common questions about soil regulation

and including techniques for attracting

bees and ladybirds to garden crops. Kits are

Darfield High School

Community News - Term 1, 2018

Page 1

Principal’s Message

Welcome to our first community newsletter for 2018.

We communicate regularly to our students and families

during the term but we also want to share with our wider

community some of the celebrations and activities from

the last term. The educational success of our children

is based on the partnership between school, family and

community so it is important to keep in touch.

Student well-being is one of our strategic goals. We all

want our children to be happy at school and schools

play a significant role in supporting the well-being of our

children. Our Health and PE programmes are an obvious

and important aspect of this. These programmes cover

aspects of both physical and mental well-being. Students

experience these as part of their class programmes and

also school-wide activities such as the ‘Attitude’ speakers

and ‘I Am Hope’ tour visit.

Students have taken a lead role in promoting well-being

by initiating a student well-being committee and having

a ‘Head of Well-being’ role for a prefect. At a student led

assembly last term the committee shared the range of

support services available through the school.

One key factor in supporting

student mental well-being is

students feeling part of a school

community that they feel connected

to. Connection with the school is

strengthened by feeling listened

to, contributing and participating in

school activities, and having friends

and positive working relationships with the adults at school.

As well as being fun the school ‘House’ competitions help

engender a greater sense of belonging. Promoting physical

health by participating in sports teams can also build

positive social links with others in the school. Activities

such as school camps enable students to have shared

experiences that can work to build greater comaraderie.

Thank you to all of those in the community who have given

their time to support students with their learning and extracurricular

activities.

They began the year with a three-day orientation

programme, and enjoyed experiencing some Maori culture

On Thursday evening 8 February, the International Dept

held a ‘Picnic in the Park’ event at the Darfield Domain for all

International Students and their Host Families.

Holding an event at the start of the year is a great way for

International Students to spend some fun time together,

sharing food, playing games and getting to know one

another along with their host siblings. Host parents enjoyed

the chance to get to know one another as well as catch up

with other host families who have been hosting for several

years.

Mrs Kennedy and Miss Hely cooked a BBQ for the 77

guests, and host families brought delicious desserts for

everyone to enjoy. The international students enjoyed their

first taste of a NZ BBQ, with meat patties being the favourite!

Canterbury to learn more about the Young Enterprise

Scheme programme for the year. We were given the

chance to talk to a number of business people about

our product ideas and also gain an insight on how

to run a business. This was a great opportunity for

everyone and helped us identify next steps for our

products.

Above: Looking after our International Thailand guests from Kiwi Centre.

While at Darfield High School they are assigned a “School Buddy” who helps them within the school environment.

Year 9 Camps

The Year 9 camp was based at Craigieburn for

three days and two nights. They got to experience

many fun activities, such as bouldering, abseiling,

kayaking, Cave Stream, BBTBT (also known as bring

back the beech trees) and a big three hour hike up

Helicopter Hill.

Seasprite Visit

Darfield High School was lucky enough to have a visit from

the Royal New Zealand Navy in their Seasprite helicopter.

A large audience of students and staff were able to get up

close to the machine and ask the crew members questions.

We found out about their roles on the Seasprite and within

the Defence Force, and exactly what prerequisites and

grades are required to be able to apply for careers within the

New Zealand Defence Force.

Field Trips

A busy start to the year for students heading outside the

classroom to study. Some of the Field trips so far this year

have included Geography trip to Mount Cook to study

different terrain and geographical features; History trip to

Akaroa, learning about the history of Ngai Tahu and Ngati

Toa and also to Arrowtown to study the Otago Gold Rush.

The Social Studies classes spent a day at the school’s

established plot on Creyke Road, bird feeding, weeding,

possum trapping and watering the plants.

House Colours Mufti Day

2018, the start of the new year, means new students, and

new House captains and deputies. The first of the House

competitions was a "House Colours Mufti Day".

This day always generates a fun and exciting atmostphere

at school, and once again, there were some awesome

costumes and bright colours on the school turf for the judges

to choose the winning Houses from each year level.

This year's placings for Mufti Day are:

FIRST: Kikorangi

SECOND: Rawhiti

THIRD: Tawera

FOURTH: Waimakariri

You can follow the House points on our website at:

been easy.

Motus Lincoln

has moved

ADVERTORIAL

As of Monday 16 April 2018 we have

moved to our purpose built clinic

at Unit 7, 3 Vernon Drive, the new

development behind the Challenge

Service Station. The new clinic is

fully equipped to provide our clients

with consistent, quality healthcare

that can be relied upon. The clinic

has a rehabilitation gym onsite, extra

treatment rooms and a light bright feel

to assist you with your recovery. The

staff are also very pleased to finally

have a staff room after five and half

years of eating lunch in their rooms!!

With a new clinic we also welcome

some new faces to the Motus Lincoln

team. In January we welcomed Chris

Pettet to the physio team. Chris has

come across from Sportsmed and

before that spent two years working in

London while he enjoyed his OE. Chris

is passionate about exercise and using

exercise as a powerful recovery tool.

In February, Steph Foster joined the

Motus Lincoln physio team. Steph

recently graduated from Otago

University. Steph is loving being

a physio and using her new found

knowledge to assist her patients

with their recovery. Steph is working

alongside our senior clinicians under

our Graduate Education program.

Chris and Steph join Brett, Kathryn,

Mary and Jo making up our physio

team.

Motus Lincoln welcomed a new

podiatrist to the team in January.

Georgina Barr works onsite every

Wednesday to assist with all your

podiatry needs. Georgina spends the

rest of her work working at Sportsmed

in town.

Anna Bradley from Form Massage and

Pilates is enjoying the new premises

and available for massage therapy

appointments every Tuesday and

Thursday afternoon. Anna also runs

Pilates classes from the Lincoln Events

Centre on Thursday evenings.

It was a sad day on Friday 13th April as

we said goodbye to the old clinic on

the corner of Lyttleton and Gerald St.

This site has been a physio clinic since

1989 under the guidance of Kathryn

Claridge for much of this time.

The team at Motus Lincoln are

available to help you on your journey

from injury to wellbeing and look

forward to helping you to “live active”.

Wins elude Selwyn

Canterbury’s premier competition.

However, after a string of away games

against title contenders, Selwyn will

return to Foster Park with possibly their

best chance of securing an elusive MPL

victory on Saturday.

They host FC Twenty 11 who have three

wins to their name, including a 3-1 win

over Selwyn when the two sides met at

the end of March.

Final minute win

elevates Prebbleton

• By Gordon Findlater

PREBBLETON have

moved joint top of section

B in the combined country

division one rugby

competition following a

final minute penalty kick

to defeat Ellesmere rivals

Darfield for the first time

in over a decade.

Saturday’s 19-18 win

over Darfield at Sheffield

Domain provided plenty

of late drama for onlookers.

Holding a slim lead

Prebbleton lost captain

Steven Lees-Goodwin with

8min to play after he was

yellow-carded for not rolling

away after a tackle.

Darfield made the most

of the extra man advantage

and scored to lead 18-16.

However, Prebbleton were

awarded a penalty with

only moments left to play.

With regular kicker Recce

Martin already substituted,

first-five George Wigley

stepped up to slot the kick

40m directly in front of

goal to give his side a 19-18

lead.

Proud supporters of

Rugby & Netball in Selwyn

At this point many

Prebbleton fans ran onto

the field assuming time

was up, but they were

quickly ushered off and

made to watch a nail biting

final 40sec before the ball

was kicked in to touch.

The win was

Prebbleton’s second in

three days after a bonus

point win over Rakaia

on Anzac Day. The team

also achieved both results

without coach Derek

Todd who is currently in

Australia.

“They did really well. I

don’t know if they’ll want

me back,” joked Todd.

“That has been mentioned

by the boys,” said

assistant coach Tony

Martin.

Prebbleton’s only try of

the match came midway

through the first half when

No. 8 Etu Sunia intercepted

a pass in his own

half before running 60m

to score. Halfback Reece

Martin added three penalties

and one two-point

conversion.

Music Month comes to Selwyn

New Zealand Music Month is coming to Selwyn District Libraries

this month.

Enjoy free interactive performances for children with ensembles

from the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra (CSO), as well as a

variety of Ministry of the Mind Music artists brought to libraries in

conjunction with the Council’s Arts, Culture & Heritage team.

The CSO ‘Music Trails through the Library’ sessions are a fun and

interactive way of introducing young children to live music. These

45-minute interactive performances by CSO ensembles have elements

of song, stories and dance, and are a great opportunity for children to

see the instruments up close and join in with the musical fun.

The two CSO performances occur on Thursday 3 May at Rolleston

Library and Monday 14 May at Lincoln Library, from 10.30–11.15am.

A caregiver is required for all children.

Ministry of the Mind Music features acoustic artists Picking at the

Remnants, Alex Hardy (pictured) and Patrick, Moonflower, and

Hanna Hogg. These sessions take place each Saturday during

May at each Selwyn District Libraries branch (Rolleston, Darfield,

Leeston and Lincoln), and run from 11.30am–1pm, including breaks.

All Music Month events in Selwyn are free, with no bookings

required, however spaces are limited.

See www.selwynlibraries.co.nz for more details.

Selwyn District Council’s road safety team are running an ‘Active Autumn’ active transport

campaign for schools in Term 2.

‘Active transport’ is using physical activity, such as walking, biking or scootering, to get to and

from school, rather than the commute in a car, or bus.

School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler says there are many physical and mental

benefits to active transport, which are being encouraged with ‘Active Autumn’.

“Children develop increased road safety awareness, decision making and risk assessment skills. It

takes practice to develop skills such as being able to judge the speed of a moving vehicle, or how

big a gap is needed to cross a busy road safely,” she says.

“Gaining these life skills as a child is an important step towards gaining independence. Children

are also better primed for learning, and studies have found that children who are active are not

only physically fitter but can concentrate for longer.

“Active transport can be instrumental in increased social connectivity, not only for children, but

parents too. Getting to know the neighbourhood and community is important for all of us to feel

like we belong and makes for a safer more connected society.

“Skipping the car ride also means less noise, less congestion, less visual pollution and cleaner air.

Burning less fuel saves money too!” she says.

During May, local Selwyn schools are being provided with Active Autumn packs to educate

families about active transport. One of the activities children can take part in is the W.o.W

challenge, where children can get a card stamped each time they walk or wheel to or from school.

Completed cards will go in the draw to win an MGP scooter, helmet or backpack cover, plus

heaps of other great prizes.

A poster design competition is also being held, with children challenged to create a poster about

why walking or wheeling is good for you. The prize is a new helmet, and a day of Pedalmania for

the winning student’s school. Entries close Thursday 31 May 2018.

Check out www.selwyn.govt.nz for more information about Active Autumn.

Apply for events funding

Applications for round one of the Selwyn District Events Fund are open during May to fund events

happening between 1 July and 31 December 2018.

Events help make Selwyn a great place to live and provide economic benefits by attracting visitors to

our district.

The Council’s Events Fund can support a wide variety of events and help cover costs such as

equipment, venue hire, promotion, consent and traffic management to ensure your event is a success.

Applications for funding close 5pm, Thursday 31 May 2018.

To find out more and make an application visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/eventsfund or phone 347 2719.

Calling all crafters

Crafternoon Craft & Chat is a new fortnightly drop-in craft session at Selwyn District Libraries for

people who want to craft together. The sessions offer a chance to share and learn new skills, swap tips,

improve techniques and be inspired.

Attendees are welcome to bring their own projects, materials and crafting kits. All ages and abilities

welcome. No bookings required.

Drop-in sessions take place fortnightly from 2–3pm at all libraries during term time, beginning:

· Darfield Library – Tuesday 8 May

· Lincoln Library – Thursday 10 May

· Leeston Library – Wednesday 9 May

· Rolleston Library – Friday 11 May

Last call for feedback on

10-year plan

Consultation on the Council’s Long-Term Plan 2018–2028 closes

on Friday.

Submissions on the plan opened on 4 April, and over the past few

weeks hundreds of Selwyn residents have taken the opportunity to

share their views on the Council’s proposals.

Many people have completed a quick poll or survey online,

while others have made formal submissions on the consultation

document, Fast Forward ’28. Councillors and Mayor Sam Broughton

have also been out and about, hearing first-hand from local people

at events and locations across the district.

The plan sets out the Council’s priorities and budgets for the next

decade – which will see the district’s population grow from around

59,000 now to nearly 80,000 by 2028.

Responding to that growth means the Council is planning for new

and expanded facilities and services in the coming years. Among

the major proposals released for consultation are three new

community centres, a new indoor sports hub, extensions to the

Selwyn Aquatic Centre and the Council’s Rolleston offices, and a

programme of new cycleways and walkways.

The plan also proposes changes to rating for community halls and

reserves, and for water races, along with new funding and processes

for community grants. The Council has also asked for feedback on

what approach it should take to protecting the safety of community

water supplies, which may include wider use of chlorination.

These proposals sit alongside the Council’s ongoing programme

of providing quality infrastructure and services, including the

development of Rolleston’s town centre, transport connections to

the new southern motorway, ongoing upgrades to water services,

development of reserves and community facilities, and a huge

schedule of roading maintenance and improvements.

More detail about the Long-Term Plan 2018–2028, and the

proposed projects for consultation, is available at www.selwyn.

New team members join

expanding vet service

The experienced team at the West Melton Vet Centre

is there to take care of all your veterinary needs, and

with demand growing since they opened, they have

recently welcomed some new staff members.

These include part-time vet Dr Michael Meehan, a

compassionate vet with extensive experience in several

different countries. He will be in the vet centre on

Tuesdays and they hope soon also on Wednesdays.

Vet nurse Phillida Gordon has joined the team,

running the puppy classes. She comes highly

recommended with a wide range of expertise.

Jo Messenger, also a fully qualified vet nurse, spends

some time working at the front desk, but is also very

much involved with surgeries and the care of the

animals.

Head vet nurse Joe Greenfield’s responsibilities

range from front desk duties, surgeries and caring for

the animals to making sure the clinic is organised and

running smoothly.

Accountant Rudi Vaessler has also been

added to the team and you will see him for a

few hours a day in the clinic.

To keep up with all new developments in

veterinary care, the vet nurses have

recently undergone refresher

training on dog dentistry with the

IM3 trainer from Australia.

They also receive training from the Royal

Canin vet and representative on the food and

nutrition for dogs and cats.

The West Melton Vet Centre’s services include

vaccinations, consultations, surgery, dentistry, X-ray,

ultrasound, in-house blood analysis, small animal

reproductive work, skin allergies work, and much

more.

They supply all your dog and cat food needs with

their in-store product range, or on a 24-hour order-in

service.

Dr Jacoba Vaessler and her team thank the people of

West Melton and the surrounding areas for their great

support so far, and they hope to be of service for many

years to come.

Farm environment plan

template approved

Environment Canterbury has confirmed Ravensdown’s farm

environment plan template meets the requirements of the Canterbury

Land & Water Regional Plan (LWRP).

Under the LWRP, all farms requiring

a land use consent to farm must produce

an environmental plan to support it.

Environment Canterbury chief executive

Bill Bayfield said the Ravensdown template

made that process a lot easier and exceeded

the regulatory requirements of Schedule 7

of the LWRP.

“Like the Farm Environment Plan

Assessment Group, I was impressed with

the ease of use of the template and its ability

to adapt to the specifics of a property, only

populating the relevant parts,” Mr Bayfield

said.

Ravensdown business manager

environmental Mark Fitzpatrick said the

digital template constructed in Microsoft

Excel format was a precursor to a nationally

available online version hosted within the

company’s mapping and analytics platform,

Hawkeye, and other farm management

tools such as agronomy plans.

Identifying and addressing potential

environmental effects and risks

“The digital version is tailored to fit a

wide range of farm systems and will be

used by Ravensdown farm environmental

consultants to help farmers prepare their

farm environment plan,” Mr Fitzpatrick

said.

“While regional plan compliance is

critical, the team has also developed

Biodiversity and Greenhouse Gas guidance

within the FEP. It’s all part of enabling

smarter farming for a better New Zealand.”

The Land & Water Regional Plan is

a primary delivery mechanism of the

Canterbury Water Management Strategy.

“It is reassuring to see in the Ravensdown

template a methodology that will enable the

development of plans and to identify and

address actual and potential environmental

effects and risks,” Mr Bayfield said.

“We encourage all farmers to prepare

farm environment plans, regardless of

whether they’re needed by regulation.

International markets are increasingly

demanding proven sustainability, and

farm environment plans are one way to

demonstrate this.”

Complying with the Land Water Regional

Plan

Under Schedule 7 of the Land & Water

Regional Plan, farm environment plans

can be prepared either by landowners

themselves using guidance in the LWRP

or via industry-prepared templates and

guidance material.

Minimum content is specified, and all

farm environment plans must include an

assessment of the risks associated with

the farming activities and how those risks

will be managed. This includes irrigation,

application of nutrients, effluent, stock

exclusion from waterways, offal pits and

farm rubbish pits. Farm environment plans

must be auditable.

Schedule 7 of the LWRP is subject

to several changes in the Nutrient

Management and Waitaki Plan Change

(Plan Change 5, currently under appeal)

including the addition of matters set out in

sub-region plans. These include important

things such as identification of further

features including flood protection works,

public access management of phosphorus

risk zones and management of sites with

mahinga kai.

Ravensdown has included these items in

its template, avoiding the need to update

the template once Plan Change 5 becomes

operative, unless changes are made to the

Schedule.

New taxes not supported

by farmers, survey shows

Any move to introduce a capital gains, land or environment tax will meet

stiff opposition from farmers, a Federated Farmers survey shows.

The Federation asked its members for

their views in March, to help inform the

farmer group’s submission to the Tax

Working Group. The nearly 1400 responses

indicated strong opposition to some of the

new taxes that have been suggested.

Just on 81 per cent opposed a capital

gains tax excluding the family home, with

11 per cent in support. However, 47 per

cent would support a CGT on property

sold within a five year ‘bright line’ test.

There is currently a two-year threshold,

and the measure is seen by some as a way of

discouraging speculators.

“Farmer opposition is even more

entrenched on the idea of a land tax,

excluding under the family home, with 91

per cent against and only two per cent in

favour,” Federated Farmers Economics and

Commerce spokesperson Andrew Hoggard

said.

“A land tax would be punitive and

inequitable on farming. The strong

opposition to it in last month’s survey

mirrors its utter rejection by rural New

Zealand the last time our tax system was

reviewed, in 2010,” he said.

Some 82 per cent of respondents opposed

environmental taxation but there was

minority support if such taxes were used to

fund on-farm environmental initiatives.

Tax incentives for those who invested in

environment-related on-farm investments

drew 84 per cent support.

“Just on 12 per cent supported a

‘progressive company tax’ (i.e., a lower

rate for small companies), with 26 per cent

opposed and 55 per cent thinking ‘maybe’

depending on what is considered ‘small’.

There was a lot of concern about compliance

implications,” Mr Hoggard said.

Meanwhile, 66 per cent opposed

exempting basic items, such as food, from

GST, with 29 per cent supporting.

“Federated Farmers will be sending in

a comprehensive submission to the Tax

Working Group, which will pick up on

the concerns and comments raised in our

member survey,” he said.

Selwyn District Plan

Private Plan Change 54

Ballymena Holdings Ltd has lodged a private plan change request with the

Council. The Plan Change seeks to rezone 31.32ha of Rural Outer Plans land near

Springfield to a Residential Living 2 Zone (rural residential type development).

Selwyn District Council

Clause 5 of the First Schedule, Resource Management Act 1991

Plan Change 54 (PC54) seeks to rezone the site from an Outer Plains Rural

Zone (minimum 20ha per dwelling) to a Living 2 Zone to accommodate 15 new

lots plus the retention of the existing dwelling to give 16 lots in total. The lots

are to have an average size of 2ha, with no individual lot to be less than 1ha in

area. The rule framework being sought by PC54 relies on the existing Living 2

Zone provisions, with amendments being limited to site-specific matters. No

amendments are sought to the District Plan’s objective and policies beyond the

inclusion of a site-specific reference in a single policy regarding site coverage. The

request is accompanied by an Outline Development Plan that gives guidance as

to the general size and location of lots, associated vehicle access routes and key

features such as a proposed 80m setback for dwellings from the boundary of the

Midland Rail Corridor to manage amenity outcomes.

The plan change request and the assessment of why it is needed can be read at

Council’s Rolleston Headquarters and Darfield Library and can be viewed online at

service centres and public libraries in Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and Rolleston or

at www.selwyn.govt.nz.

Submissions

Any person or organisation may make a submission supporting or opposing any

aspect of this plan change. Submissions must be written and in accordance

with Form 5 of the Resource Management Regulations and is available from any

Council Service Centre or on the website.

Submissions may be:

Posted to: Planning Department, Selwyn District Council, PO Box 90, Rolleston 7643

Delivered to: A Council service centre in Darfield, Lincoln, Leeston or Rolleston.

Faxed to: 03 347 2799 (if you fax your submission please post or deliver a copy to

the details above)

Emailed to: submissions@selwyn.govt.nz

At a later date, all submissions received will be summarised and published.

Further Submissions will then be invited, allowing any person or organisation to

support or oppose any of the initial submissions. A Council hearing will then be

arranged to consider all submissions, after which the Council will decide whether

to reject or approve the plan change. Any submitter who is not satisfied with the

Council’s decision may then appeal to the Environment Court.

For further information regarding this plan change or the process outlined above,

please contact Ben Rhodes on 03 347 2824.

The closing date for submissions is 5pm on Wednesday 30 May 2018.

The Best Kept Secrets

to Selling Your Home

Selling Secret #1: The first

impression is the only impression

No matter how good the interior of your

home looks, buyers have already judged

your home before they walk through the

door. You never have a second chance to

make a first impression. It’s important

to make people feel warm, welcome and

safe as they approach the house. Spruce

up your home’s exterior with inexpensive

shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry

ways are also important. You use it as a

utility space for your coat and keys. But,

when you’re selling, make it welcoming by

putting in a small bench or a vase of freshcut

flowers.

Selling Secret #2: Always be ready

to show

Your house needs to be “show-ready” at

all times – you never know when your

buyer is going to walk through the door.

You have to be available whenever they

want to come see the place and it has to

be in tip-top shape. Don’t leave dishes in

the sink, keep the dishwasher cleaned out,

the bathrooms sparkling and make sure

there are no dust bunnies in the corners.

It’s a little inconvenient, but it will get your

house sold.

Selling Secret #3: The kitchen

comes first

You’re not actually selling your house,

you’re selling your kitchen – that’s how

important it is. The benefits of remodeling

your kitchen are endless, and the best

part of it is that you’ll probably get 85%

of your money back. It may be a few

thousand dollars to replace countertops

where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the

asking price if your kitchen looks dated.

The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen

updates include painting and new cabinet

hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you

can present buyers with a blank canvas

where they can start envisioning their own

style. If you have a little money to spend,

buy one fancy stainless steel appliance.

Why one? Because when people see one

high-end appliance they think all the

rest are expensive too and it updates the

kitchen.

Selling Secret #4: Take the home

out of your house

One of the most important things to

do when selling your house is to depersonalize

it. The more personal stuff in

your house, the less potential buyers can

imagine themselves living there. Get rid

of a third of your stuff – put it in storage.

This includes family photos, memorabilia

collections and personal keepsakes.

Staging simply means arranging your

furniture to best showcase the floor plan

and maximize the use of space.

Selling Secret #5: Don’t overupgrade

Quick fixes before selling always pay off.

Mammoth makeovers, not so much. You

probably won’t get your money back if you

do a huge improvement project before you

put your house on the market. Instead,

do updates that will pay off and get you

top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint

on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy

some inexpensive new ones. Replace door

handles, cabinet hardware, make sure

closet doors are on track, fix leaky faucets

and clean the grout.

Selling Secret #6: Conceal the

critters

You might think a cuddly dog would

warm the hearts of potential buyers, but

you’d be wrong. Not everybody is a dogor

cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in

your home and see a bowl full of dog food,

smell the kitty litter box or have tufts of

pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give

buyers the impression that your house is

not clean. If you’re planning an open home

don’t leave your pets around.

Selling Secret #7: Play the agent

field

A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong

real estate agent. Make sure you have an

agent who is totally informed. They must

constantly monitor the multiple listing

service (MLS), know what properties are

going on the market and know the comps

in your neighborhood. Find an agent who

embraces technology – a tech-savvy one

has many tools to get your house sold.

Selling Secret #8: Light it up

Maximize the light in your home. After

location, good light is the one thing that

every buyer cites that they want in a

home. Take down the drapes, clean the

windows, change the lampshades, increase

the wattage of your light bulbs and cut the

bushes outside to let in sunshine. Do what

you have to do make your house bright

and cheery – it will make it more sellable.

Selling Secret #9: Half-empty

closets

Storage is something every buyer is

looking for and can never have enough of.

Take half the stuff out of your closets then

neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers

will snoop, so be sure to keep all your

closets and cabinets clean and tidy.

Fix those

minor defects

Start out front, cleaning, clearing and

decluttering the yard to make a good

impression on buyers.

It’s a rare house that doesn’t have defects.

Even newly renovated ones can have

features that detract for buyers. But there

are ways for sellers to deflect attention

from them without pretending they’re not

there. The three main ways of dealing with

defects are:

1. Fix them.

2. Draw the eye away from them.

3. Use them as a selling point.

Simple defects can be fixed easily. Start

out front. Overgrown bushes can be

trimmed, or replaced with a few matching

plants, old fences and front doors can be

painted or stained, and the paths cleaned.

Do this even if a property is a do-up.

You want to give the impression that

buyers can move into the house and chip

away at the work in their own time

If you have time and money, paint sills

and eaves using accents.

Inside, the first thing buyers see is the

hallway, which can be brightened up with

a lick of paint. The neutral paint trick can

also be used to paint over dated wallpaper,

completely changing the look and feel of a

tired house.

Bathrooms and kitchens are important to

buyers, and the eye settles on vanities and

benches. These can be resurfaced relatively

quickly to give a modern look.

If the seller can’t repaint or tile the

bathroom bring in high quality matching

towels, which become a feature in the

room and draw the eye from the less than

desirable walls and features. Nice vases and

flowers will do the same.

Replacing handles and knobs to draw

attention away from the units themselves.

This reduces the number of “I have to do

this” thoughts in potential buyers’ minds.

Drawing the eye away from a multitude

of sins is exactly the thing to do.

If you see an empty house the eye always

goes to marks on the carpet and walls and

this will lower the price expectation.”

Drawing the eye to the furniture and

furnishings, creates better flow, and de

cluttering makes buyers feel the home

would be a nice place to live in.

The other way to handle the property’s

defects is to raise them with the buyer

before they see them.

If the carpet is bad, for example, you

can say: “Hey, they were going to replace

the carpet but they decided to leave it to

you to choose a new carpet and priced it

accordingly.”

Finally, good old fashioned elbow grease

is essential in all properties to remove

those sins that are simply cleanable.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Selling your house

in winter

The perception seems to be that it is

harder to sell your home during the winter

months than the summer ones. While

statistics may not necessarily bear that out,

it is true that selling your home in winter

presents a specific set of challenges that may

not apply in the busier and warmer months

of October, February or March.

It is also reassuring to know that people

buy houses year round, including June

and July, when sale numbers do appear to

drop, but not as much as you might think.

There may be some advantages to selling or

buying a house during winter. There is less

competition, which may mean a quicker

sale (but not necessarily) and, as Real Estate

blogger Andrew Duncan writes, when you

view a house, “if you like it on a freezing

cold day, with a howling southerly, getting

pelted by hail as you run to the front door,

chances are high you will like it in the

middle of January, too”.

Many of the steps required to make

your house presentable for sale apply

whatever time of year it goes on the market.

Decluttering, clearing away the knickknacks,

books, papers and other things that

make your home yours but may distract

from what potential buyers want and need

to see. Cleaning may be an obvious thing

to do, or have done, but it is an important

step to take. If it can be cleaned, clean

it – carpets, upholstery, floors, drapes,

cupboards and corners, even those hard to

reach or see places. Tidy outdoor spaces,

keep the lawns mowed and leaves raked

and cleared away. There will always be some

painting and fixing to do.

Viewing and buying a house is an

emotional experience. Appealing to buyer’s

emotions is not cheating, it is doing the best

to enable them to see themselves living in

your home.

The extra challenges of presenting your

home in winter relate to the colder, wetter

weather and poorer light.

Maximising natural light, and enhancing

it by turning on all the lamps and lights

gives a bright, spacious feel to your house,

especially on grey days. Scheduling open

homes and showings during the brightest

part of the day is best.

Make sure the house is warm. Cold

homes are not inviting. Turn on the heat

pump, or light the fire if you have one.

Street appeal is always important. In

addition to the summer basics, make sure

the gutters and down pipes are cleared and

are not leaking. Make sure the entrance way

is clean and welcoming and the paths are

free of moss and slime.

Hopefully mould and condensation are

not issues, but if they are they should be

fixed long before showings begin. Efficient

heating systems, including insulation,

and adequate ventilation will be a good

investment at any time, and will add value

to your house.

Sometimes the little things make a big

difference. Some candles and light music

can create a calming ambience. Have a

couple of umbrellas available if it is raining.

Hopefully, it won’t be a howling southerly

on showing/open home day, but if you

are selling in winter it may be more likely.

Being prepared means inclement weather

does not have to make showing your home

more difficult.

The extra challenges of

presenting your home in winter

relate to the colder, wetter

weather and poorer light.

Building on a budget

Building your own home is one of the biggest investments of a lifetime and with

a few clever tips we show you how to make the most of what you can afford.

Get smart with your money to achieve

your dream home without compromising

on what’s really important.

Consider buying a large plot of land with

friends or family which you can split into

smaller lots. Many great

locations tend to cover

more ground, so get the

stunning harbour view

you dream of by sharing

the cost with someone you

don’t mind having as a

neighbour.

Opting for lowmaintenance

building

materials, like vinyl siding

and metal roofing saves in

the long run. Although

they may be more

expensive to install you

will save money on future

repairs, replacement or

repainting.

Using salvaged and recycled

materials and componentry

from the abundance of

demolition sites around the

city not only adds valuable

character to new builds, but

can save money, too.

For the safety and security

of your home, don’t skimp on structural

elements, doors and windows. Buy the

very best you can afford and, together

with your architect or builder, determine

other areas you could save on to allow for

a few luxuries.

It’s important not to waste valuable cash

on overbuilding. Look carefully at the

existing properties in the area and be

Deciding exactly

what you want

and then sticking with

it will ensure you stay

on budget, on time,

and all with

minimal stress.

aware that building a home that is bigger

and better than those of your neighbours

will not necessarily equate to a fair price

if and when it’s time to sell. instead, the

value of your build will be determined

by the lower-priced homes

around it.

The experience of a wellqualified

contractor is an

invaluable asset in any

building project. Not only

will you have recourse

should anything go wrong,

but their experience in

the industry means they

will have established

relationships with suppliers

and subcontractors, whom

they trust to deliver the best

workmanship possible.

Keep a close eye on

construction allowances as

your home is being built

to ensure you are getting

what you asked for and

what you paid for. if you

had initially agreed on

using a specific brand, for

example, then don’t settle

for less, unless you discuss

a cost adjustment with your

builder or contractor.

Many a building project has snowballed

out of control in the financial department

due to changes being made to the design

and materials once building is already

underway. Deciding exactly what you

want and then sticking with it will ensure

you stay on budget, within your expected

time frame, and all with minimal stress.

Making the most of

show home viewing

Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for

features and fittings to put into a new home. It can also be helpful

for getting a spatial feel for other aspects of a house design.

Before heading out for a day’s

viewing, conduct an internet search.

identify the locations of show home

villages and the types and sizes of the

various building company’s homes on

display, noting down the square metre

size of each home.

if wanting a high end, architectural

design, focus on the larger homes that

have desirable design features. if at the

entry or middle level of the market,

earmark homes that fit this taking in

other show homes for extra ideas.

allow sufficient time when visiting each

show home, asking for a floor plan that

has room sizes before walking through.

Check also the floor to ceiling height

of the rooms and consider how this feels

and whether you prefer a cosier feel with

the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or

more spaciousness created with a higher

stud or exposed ceiling beams.

if doors and windows are taller than

normal, weigh their effect in creating

a more luxurious and spacious feel,

against potential inconvenience for small

children, cleaning and maintenance.

on entering each room, take account of

how much furniture is in each room and

whether there is sufficient space for the

furniture you will have in the room and

the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look

too, at storage capacity throughout the

home and whether this is adequate.

in the living areas, consider whether a

lounge separated from the family living

room or a true open plan kitchen, dining,

living/lounge area is preferable, and

compare internal kitchens with those that

have natural light.

Look too at the layout of

the kitchen: whether to have

an island sink or breakfast

bar where a newspaper can

be read, and children can

sit and draw or complete

homework; the positioning

of appliances; and how

important having a pantry is.

for the little rooms, equate

space and features desired

with that needed, especially

if the budget needs to be

sharp. it might be nice to

have a large walk-in shower

with double shower heads

but is this just fanciful and

will the extra cleaning annoy you long

term. a laundry in the garage is also more

economical though a separate laundry

may be handier.

Bring the garage size into the equation

also. as these vary considerably, assess

the actual measurements of each garage

viewed comparing this with the space

needed for your motor vehicles and other

items to be stored there. if a good number

of toys will be housed there, it may be

sensible to increase the size of this area of

the home.

By imagining what you need, want and

will have in your new home, you will be in

a better position to confidently choose a

design that works for you.
