Teen US-bound for

prestigious golf champs

CAITLIN MILES

A Darfield teenager will be

teeing off with the big leagues

in a golf championship in the

United States.

The nerves are yet to hit

Dominic Brettkelly, 16, as he

ramps up training for the IMG

Junior World Golf Championships

in San Diego in July.

He has been accepted for a

place in the 15-17 year boys’

section of the competition

which involves 1200

participants from 56 countries

competing on Torrey Pines

South Course, which has

previously hosted the US Open

and PGA tour.

Dominic’s grandfather gave

him his first golf club when

he was 18-months-old and he

joined the Hororata Golf Club

when he was six and started

training at 12.

This is the first time Dominic

will compete in the championships

and he is excited to stand

on the same course some of the

greats have.

“Mum told me as soon as I

woke up and it just made my

day. It’s going to be a surreal

experience, I’ve never played

in America so it’ll be a really

great opportunity,” he said.

Fire ban

imposed

again

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Unseasonable dry weather has

forced the return of a total fire

ban in the Selwyn District.

Yesterday the district council

implemented the fire ban, because

of low rainfall in the area.

The previous fire ban was

lifted on April 4 after being

reduced in January.

Darfield chief fire officer Alan

Kittelty said it was the closest to

winter he could remember a ban

being implemented.

No outdoor fires can be lit in

the district, and the burning of

crop stubble is also not allowed.

Gas barbecues with water nearby

are allowed, but not charcoal

barbecues.

All fire permits previously

issued by the district council are

also cancelled.

Selwyn’s principal rural fire

officer Douglas Marshall said

vegetation had become dry, and

meant fires could “quickly get

out of control.”

Mr Kittelty said the fire ban

was put in place out of “necessity”.

“It is pretty late in the piece to

be in this situation, but it’s been

pretty dry, we haven’t had a bit

of rain for a while,” he said.

Mr Marshall said the district

council would review the ban

regularly, and will lift restrictions

“as soon as it becomes safe”.

Mr Kittelty said if anyone sees

a fire burning out of control, they

should “get in touch with us as

soon as possible.”

A fee of $1150 can be charged

for a fire call out if a fire has

been lit which breaches fire restrictions.

The fee is given back

to local volunteer fire forces.

Battle over for new hall

CAITLIN MILES

After a battle with the district

council the Greenpark

community has a new hall.

The Greenpark Hall was badly

damaged in the September 2010

and February 2011 earthquakes

and had to be demolished.

The district council considered

not building a new one

as the Lincoln Event Centre is

close to the area but residents

said they needed it to be rebuilt.

“We have more people moving

into the area and need a

space for people to meet. It’s

important that we have a hall,”

said Greenpark Memorial Community

Committee chairman

Terry Lassen.

The community also lost

Greenpark School in 2012 and

Mr Lassen said it was hard losing

both the school and hall in a

short space of time.

“It was hard losing both, so

when they considered not rebuilding

it we stuck to our guns

and got what we wanted,” Mr

Lassen said.

The new hall has been built

in Greenpark Domain and can

be used for many community

events.

“It can be used for sports and

community gatherings, dances

and anything the community

need it for, we wanted it to be

able to be used for anything,” he

said.

The total cost of the build

was $849,085. The fit-out of the

building was funded through

grants and donations.

Mr Lassen said it’s exciting

news for the residents who have

been fighting for the hall to be

rebuilt.

The facility will include a

large meeting room, floor space,

storage rooms and lockers and a

kitchen.

The hall is being officially

opened on Sunday, May 22, by

Selwyn MP Amy Adams. The

celebrations will start off with

the original foundation stone

being transported to and laid at

the hall. The war memorial and

plaque will be unveiled which

will be rededicated by Ivan Norton,

the Greenpark RSA president

before an afternoon tea and

lolly scramble for the children.

ROAD CLOSURE

Jones Rd in Rolleston will be

closed for construction work over

the weekend. The road will be

closed between Weedons Ross

and Hoskyns Rds from Saturday

9am until Monday 6am. Fulton

Hogan requested the closure on

behalf of Lyttelton Port Company

so it can install panels between

the road and rail road tracks so

vehicles can move more smoothly

over the tracks. A marked detour

will operate via Weedons Ross,

Maddisons and Hoskyns Rds

until Jones Rd reopens.

ROAD NAMES APPROVED

The district council has approved

the naming of two new roads

in the Ballymackey subdivision

in Tai Tapu. At the last district

council meeting councillors

agreed on Ardrossan Way

and Ryan Pl to be put in the

subdivision as they are relevant

to the Ryan family, which is the

name of the developer of the

subdivision.

ART SURVEY

The Selwyn Arts Trust wants

more community input into

art in the district. The trust, in

partnership with the district

council, has created a survey

asking people around the

area about the future of art in

Selwyn and what they would

like to see. The survey is on the

Driver thrown from truck

Truck driver Craig Nash had a

miraculous escape after being

thrown from his crashing truck

on the Southern Motorway on

Wednesday.

In spite of the crash he texted

his boss, Peter Macdonald, from

a hospital bed a few hours later

asking if he was still needed

for an urgent delivery in the

afternoon.

“I told him he didn’t need to

worry about that. He is one lucky

cookie,” Mr Macdonald said.

Mr Nash was heading south to

deliver goods in Wigram when

his truck smashed through the

middle divider, across two lanes

of north-bound traffic before

ending up in a ditch on the side

of the road.

A witness said oncoming traffic

had to take evasive action to

avoid the out-of-control vehicle

as it crossed their lanes.

He said a truck heading north

had to do “the big swerve thing”

to avoid a head-on collision.

“There were cars and trucks

that could have been hit,” he

said.

Mr Nash has been released

from Christchurch Hospital.

It was the second serious incident

on Christchurch roads on

Wednesday.

A cyclist collided with a truck

in the central city, suffering serious

injuries.

The cyclist was riding south

on Manchester St when he was

hit at the intersection of Armagh

St and dragged underneath the

small truck.

A witness to the cyclist

incident, who did not want

to be named, said while she had

her back to the crash it sounded

“terrible”.

“I didn’t see the crash but I

heard it happen. When I looked

around there were people

standing around the man under

the truck,” she said.

Lincoln resident to

play key role in show

A Lincoln resident will be playing a key role in a

National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art

show running this month.

Third-year NASDA student Dearna Doglione

will be playing a key role in their next show The

Collective by feminist New Zealander playwright

Jean Betts.

The Collective uncovers German poet, playwright

and theatre director Bertolt Brecht’s past and how

he became highly respected in the theatrical world.

Doglione’s role in the show is to play one of the

women credited to significantly contributing to

Brecht’s theatrical work.

“Basically, he used intelligent women’s yearning

to work together for “the cause” for his own desires;

he seduced them into writing plays for him,”

Doglione said.

She said everyone who has studied acting has

heard of the great Brechtian methods but the story

will be uncovering the women behind his most

famous works.

The show will be directed by free-lance director

Mel Luckman.

“You don’t need to know anything about Brecht

. . . it’s not a history lesson, it is not a history lesson,

it is not a lecture but is very entertaining,” she said.

The Collective will be performed at the NASDA

Theatre based at the Ara Institute of Canterbury city

campus on Madras St.

The show will be running from May 13-19,

7.30pm. Tickets are $18, ($12 concession). To book

Skate parks start to roll

CAITLIN MILES

Leeston and Darfield skate

parks are in the process of being

upgraded.

Following planning and

public consultation by the

district council, construction is

under way at Leeston and once

upgrades are finished there work

will start in Darfield.

Upgrades at Leeston skate

park started in April and include

additional rails, ramps and more

seating. Darfield plans show a

new shelter, rails, half pipe and

beginner half pipe.

The public consultation allowed

for young people to get

involved and have their say on

what they wanted to see in the

upgrades.

“It was great to have young

people want to be involved in

the process, especially since

they are the ones who will be

using it,” district councillor Sam

Broughton (right) said.

Some mothers also added

their input into what safety

measures were in place for the

children.

“Mothers wanted to make sure

children of all ages could use

the park and that there would be

enough space for everyone to

use it,” district councillor Sam

Broughton said.

Kieran Lynch is happy to see

the Leeston

skate park is

going through

upgrades and

he is looking

forward to

seeing them

completed.

“It’s gonna

be really cool.

I like the way the quarter pipe is

included,” he said.

The extensions have been in

the planning process for some

time, Cr Broughton said it’s nice

to see that after several months

of planning and approving funding

the work is being carried

out.

“It’s good to have the facilities

already in place and to be

able to upgrade them for our

families and young people to

use.”

EXTENSION:

Leeston park

upgrades

include more

ramps, rails

and open

spaces to

encourage all

confidence

levels. Work

on the

Darfield skate

park (below)

is expected to

start soon.

Upgrades are being carried

out by Hunter Civil and

work on Leeston Skate Park is

expected to be completed in the

next month.

Once these upgrades are

completed work will start in

Darfield with additional landscaping

also taking place.

WATER ARTICLE CORRECTION

In last week’s Selwyn Times

(Anger over water management

research, page 7) a number

of comments were attributed

to district councillor Pat

McEvedy in regards to the

academic research that criticised

Environment Canterbury’s

water management process.

Cr McEvedy did not make the

comments. He was misquoted

in the article. The Selwyn Times

apologises to Cr McEvedy for

the errors. The article also said

Cawthron Institute research

showed the Selwyn Waihora

Zone Committee was divided

along interest group lines. This

was incorrect. It should have

read that those who had engaged

with the zone committee were

divided largely along interest

group lines.

COMMITTEE MEMBER SOUGHT

The Selwyn Waihora Zone

Committee are seeking a

replacement member after

city councillor Tim Scandrett

indicated he wanted to step

down. He said it would be

preferable if an elected member

who lives in the area would

take on the role. Cr Scandrett

said the meetings often clash

with his Spreydon-Heathcote

Community Board meetings and

other commitments making it

difficult to keep up to date with

the committee.

EMMA-JANE MCLENNAN

Callie and Nic Christie got

married on April Fools’ Day.

The couple, in their 40s,

had just one month to plan the

wedding but it turned out to be

“such a wonderful day,” Mrs

Christie said.

“It was a little bit of a rush,

but we got it organised with

help from family and friends.

We didn’t get too tied up in the

details, I just let the dressmaker

do her thing, and same with the

florist and the cake maker. They

know what they’re doing.”

The couple are part of a rise

in weddings and civil unions in

Canterbury.

Latest data from Statistics NZ

shows that while marriages and

civil unions went down in New

Zealand last year, Cantabrians

bucked the trend with a rise in

couples tying the knot.

New Zealand residents registered

19,947 marriages and civil

unions last year, down slightly

from 20,175 from 2014, but

more than the 19,425 registered

in 2013.

Canterbury residents celebrated

2655 marriages and civil

unions last year, up from 2589

in 2014. The statistics are based

on where couples live – not

where they were married.

Celebrant Julie Lassen, who

married Callie, 42, and Nic, 43,

said she had “definitely” noticed

a rise in bookings.

“There’s been a steady increase

over the past few years

and it has definitely been a

busy season. We’ve got a lot of

second-time-around marriages

as well.”

Mr Christie had previously

been married, and has two children,

Bella, 14, and Jackson, 12.

Mr and Mrs Christie met just

over four years ago, set up on a

blind date. A month later they’d

moved in together, and a year

later they booked the wedding

venue – Cossars Wineshed at

Tai Tapu – Mrs Christie said.

“We just got serious really

quickly. We booked the

venue three years ago, because

I wanted to do my girl thing

and lose a bit of weight first. We

actually forgot we’d booked it

though, until a month before,”

[laughing].

When she realised the date

was set, they went into fullwedding

mode and pulled off

the big day just a month later.

“We honestly just had the best

day,” she said.

Planting and nurturing native forest

Rolleston Christian School pupils started a native plant forest at their school and last week they added 150

more to the collection. The whole school got involved with many of the younger pupils getting help and

learning from the older ones. The children learnt gardening skills and how to interact with the other year

groups.

GOOD EFFORT:

“I live and paint in a beautiful

rural Bay on Banks Peninsula,

surrounded by the ruggedness of

the landscape and the constant

and ever changing rhythm of the

sea.

Change is constant, something you

can either embrace or ignore. Either

way, change challenges us all.

This exhibition is entitled ‘Tipping

Point’, inspired by that point of

change that drives us all, to try

new things and to let others go, to

change the way we think and act.

My paintings express this

excitement, the doubt and

apprehension that change forces

on us all, urging me to try new

things and to let others go.

In ‘Mad as a March Hare’, we have

a lady suspended, her thoughts in

the cloud, searching to find where

her next step in life in will take her,

while below normality exists.

For the Hare, March means

madness, no fear, a month of

change and a new era begins and

the excitement of the unknown.

Like the Hare, when I am in ‘My

Zone’ as an artist in my studio in

Port Levy, my imagination takes me

to places unknown, experiences

and thoughts unheard of, and it

is through my paintings that I can

truly express these feelings.

Where they will lead me is unknown,

but just like the Hare, that is what

inspires me.”

Jacqui is an artist of figurative

subjects with life and energy. Jacqui

lives and paints on an isolated farm

in Port Levy, Banks Peninsula with

her husband and daughter Phoebe.

While Jacqui’s subject matter is

invariably the human form, it is

secondary to her exploring form,

structure, movement, colour and

texture. In her recent body of work,

there is a translucent feel which

gives the paintings a whole new

interest.

She has been painting and

exhibiting for a long time. Jacqui

is also a past winner of the annual

CoCa award.

Melanie Smith replies to

last week’s column All dogs

In response to “dogs need

socialisation” and its subject

of dog attacks your writer

makes amongst other

statements “Pit bulls are

not born dangerous, I can

guarantee you that”, in fact

she can do no such thing!

It is not possible to

guarantee anything about

any creature which has a

mind of its own and thinks

independently. Even if the

animal is generally good

natured, illness, fear or mood

can change that .

Also stated is the fact that

pit bulls are used for dog

fighting .That’s dog against

dog which is not the case with

the other breeds mentioned .

Jack russells were bred

to hunt foxes as were fox

terriers. Dachshunds hunted

badgers, rabbits and foxes and

chihuahuas, small game and

vermin. They were not bred

to kill each other.

Not enough is done to

remove roaming dogs from

our streets regardless of

breed. They are a nuisance

and an accident waiting to

happen.

Key bridges

in line for

upgrades

TOM DOUDNEY

Many of Canterbury’s ageing

bridges will need to be upgraded

over the next 30 years with the

impact of heavy vehicles a major

contributing factor.

A proposed update to a section of

the Regional Land Transport Plan

states that “key bridges on the strategic

road network are a particular

concern with regard to increased

truck numbers and weights.”

According to analysis completed

as part of the South Island Freight

Plan, overall freight activity in

Canterbury is forecast to increase

by 85 per cent by 2042 with most

growth occurring by 2027.

The use of ‘high productivity

motor vehicles’ which can carry

more freight has minimised the

increase in truck trips needed

to carry the increasing freight

volumes.

However, increasing heavy vehicle

numbers over time on the road

network were “an inevitability” it

was stated in the plan.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency has installed equipment

underneath the road at the Rakaia

and Waipara bridges on State

Highway 1 in recent years, to

monitor the impact of heavy

vehicles and catch truck drivers

flouting weight limits.

Prolonged toxic algae bloom in

Steve Lowndes,

Banks

Peninsula Zone

Committee

chairman, gives

his view on

Lake Forsyth

The health of Lake Forsyth

or Te Roto o Wairewa is near

and dear to me. I have lived at

Birdlings Flat (Poranui) for the

last 15 years and my home looks

out to the lake. My attachment

to the lake is strong. I love her

different moods and interplay

with the surrounding hills, sea

and sky.

It saddens me that the lake is

sick. This summer we have had

one of the most prolonged toxic

algae blooms for years.

We cannot blame intensive

dairying, large scale irrigation or

industrial discharges as there are

none in the catchment. Unfortunately,

much of the blame lies

with early timber millers who

logged the catchment to provide

timber to build Christchurch

and in the process released large

quantities of phosphorous-rich

sediment that ended up in the

lake. Phosphorus is a natural

element of the volcanic soils of

Banks Peninsula.

Toxic algae blooms are not

new. The first recorded bloom

was in the late 1800s when a

rowing regatta was cancelled

because of algae in the lake.

The sediment that came down

the catchment in the 1860s is

still in the lake. The rate of accumulation

has decreased as the

hill healed over the years but

still large amounts of sediment

come into the lake during flood

events.

It is phosphorous that feeds

the annual toxic algae blooms

and unfortunately phosphorous

is recycled each year through the

algae back into the sediment on

the lake floor then back through

next year’s algae bloom. We

could still be recycling phosphorous

from 1860s.

Why is it so bad this year?

Well we don’t really know as

in spite of all the research that

has been undertaken over the

years we still don’t understand

the interplay between a number

of factors. We know phosphorus

is a limiting factor but don’t

know the role of oxygen, nitrate,

ammonia levels, salt concentrations,

temperature or plankton

grazers and micronutrients.

We think this year’s algae

bloom may be related to low

lake levels. The low rainfall

during 2015 winter meant that

the level of the lake as it entered

the summer period was lower

than it has been for the last four

to five years. We also think the

input of phosphorous laden

sediment during the three major

floods in the autumn of 2014

may have something to do with

it.

What is being done?

The Wairewa rūnanga has led

much of the recent work to clean

up the lake and has a goal to

restore it to a healthy source of

food (mahinga kai). The rūnanga

has led various research and

feasibility studies with Landcare

Research, Lincoln and Canterbury

University and NIWA.

The rūnanga has also been

working with Christchurch City

Council to trial a new lake opening.

This new opening provides

greater control on when and how

long the lake stays open to the

sea and therefore greater control

on the lake level. This month a

joint consent to continue to use

the pilot opening was granted

to the rūnanga and the Christchurch

City Council for a period

of 35 years.

Lake Forsyth

The Banks Peninsula Zone

Committee, after working with

the community and technical

experts, recommended in 2014

that, given the current state of

knowledge it was best to focus

attention on reducing further

sediment input into the lake

and understand better how

the lake works before trying

to remove and dispose of 800

Olympic-size swimming pools

of accumulated sediment.

As a consequence of these

recommendations Environment

Canterbury has proposed

changes to the Land and Water

Regional Plan which requires

stricter controls on stock

access to the river banks on

the valley floor where most

of the sediment comes from.

The hearing for Plan Change

6 (Wairewa) was completed a

couple of weeks ago.

We are hoping to see these

provisions come into effect

later in the year. The zone

committee is also supporting

the development of a sediment

management work programme

and plan a pilot project to

help landowners manage and

remediate their stream banks.

ECan has also improved its

monitoring of the lake so real

time data on a variety of water

quality parameters are collected

continuously. This will

give us a much better idea of

how the lake conditions change

throughout the year and help

us to design future actions that

don’t cause bigger problems

than the ones we are trying to

fix.

The community is also working

hard to improve management

of the main rivers to mitigate

the effects of flood events

but also manage them to reduce

sediment discharges. Stock are

already being fenced out of the

rivers and the Little River community

nursery provides native

plants and advice on riparian

planting.

There is a fine line between

management of the rivers for

flood mitigation and reducing

sediment discharges, but I am

confident everyone is aware of

these dual goals and are taking

both into account before taking

action.

Both the rūnanga and the

zone committee have been

thinking about the next big

action to take. Both, however,

are cautious about knee

jerk reactions and want to

ensure proposals are based on

good science and will work.

Currently the zone committee,

with the help of ECan, are

trying to determine whether a

sediment retention basin would

intercept sediment during

flood events before it reaches

the lake. Another idea is to

use wetland vegetation to take

up phosphorous that could be

harvested and removed from

the lake.

What is the future?

In spite of a considerable

amount of energy and

action from individuals and

organisations alike, the lake

has a mind of her own. We

thought the new lake opening

had made a difference and

we’d seen improvements in the

indicators such as the tropic

level index and the presence

of macrophytes in the lake last

summer.

But this year, in spite of our

best efforts we’ve had the algae

bloom.

Unfortunately, there is no

quick fix and no one to blame.

It will take time. There will

be setbacks and the effects

of climate change has just

made the job harder. But I am

confident that with everyone

doing their bit, Te Roto o

Wairewa will once again be

a source of food that we are

proud of and enjoy.

Pirates, Star Trek actors

come to Canterbury

EMMA-JANE MCLENNAN

A multi-million dollar movie is

set to be filmed in Canterbury

– bringing international stars

and foreign investment, and

showcasing some of our iconic

scenery.

The brainchild of Canterburyborn,

British-residing Emily

Corcoran (actress, writer and

producer for Sisterhood and

actress, Confine, among others),

the movie filming has overcome

setbacks from the earthquakes

to start filming in the next few

weeks.

Ms Corcoran tried to get the

adventure colonial western, The

Stolen, off the ground twice –

but was twice hampered by the

earthquakes.

“We were trying to get foreign

investment, so even after that,

we had to secure two highprofile

actors and a director.

We did do that and now we’re

looking to start filming.”

Starring Alice Eve (known for

playing Carol Marcus in Star

Trek Into Darkness) and Jack

Davenport (James Norrington

in the Pirates of the Caribbean

series, Lancelot in Kingsman),

the movie will be directed by

Niall Johnson (White Noise,

Keeping Mum).

Ms Corcoran wrote the

storyline eight years ago. Now

that it’s finally coming to

fruition, she says it’s a “dream

come true.”

Alice Eve

Investors from Germany

and the United Kingdom have

secured the film a $4 million

budget.

Crew are currently setting up

their base at Ferrymead Heritage

Park, with other on-set locations

all around the region, Ms

Corcoran said.

“We’re actually shooting

entirely in Canterbury, and

we believe we’ve found some

beautiful places. We’ve based

ourselves at Ferrymead, where

we’ve built some indoor sets

and we’ll be using the steam

train, but we’ve also got facades

of sets at Mt Vernon and Little

River, and a private homestead

in Rangiora.”

The film is set during the gold

rush of 1860. It is based on a

young woman and her wealthy

husband, who come out to New

Zealand from England, Ms

Corcoran said.

The district’s mobile Pop Up

Cafe is looking for a young

person to manage it.

Darfield High School’s Emily

de Rooy has been the face

behind the cafe, a Selwyn Youth

Council initiative, for the past

year.

But school commitments

mean the 17-year-old needs to

concentrate her energies elsewhere.

Emily has been managing and

working in the cafe, but also has

the Stage Challenge and this is

her last year of school. She is

also on the Selwyn Youth Council,

which operates the cafe.

The cafe was started two

years ago. It is organised and

operated by students and aims

to get young people in the community

involved in business and

learn useful skills.

“It’s been a real learning

experience, helping train people

and setting up rosters and getting

she said.

The mobile cafe is at community

events, outside of schools

and at sports games.

“It’s been a great way to be in

the community and let people

know about the youth council,

and what we do,” she said.

All profits made from the cafe

go to the youth council, which

then administers the money to

people and organisations around

Selwyn.

council was able to help them

out and provide funding.”

Emily is now focused on

getting more young people

involved in the cafe and other

youth events around Selwyn.

“We want to include lots

of young people, it’s a great

chance to engage with the community

and learn some skills,”

she said.

Emily is looking for someone

else to take her role when the

year is over and give them the

chance to learn as much as she

has.

The Pop Up Cafe now has a

spot at Foster Park in Rolleston

every Saturday morning.

Having the best to

ensure great service

When you need to rely on your outboard motor to get you home after

a great day’s fishing or boating, it is essential to have had it serviced by

the best people available in the business.

The team at Butler Marine has been servicing outboard motors in

their current business since 1987, and, even before that, boating and

motors were in their blood.

Owner John Butler says, “We have a hands-on approach to most

problems our customer can have. If we cannot fix it we will arrange

to have it fixed.”

Butler Marine will service Suzuki, Yamaha, Mercury, Parsun, Mariner,

Johnson, Evinrude, Honda and Tohatsu outboard motors.

“We carry a wide range of parts, and what we don’t have we can

generally get overnight. We also have access to a range of second

hand parts to help keep costs down,” John says. “We are agents for

Suzuki outboard motors, the world’s best four stroke motor, and

Parsun two and four stroke outboard motors.”

He adds that now is the ideal time to get your boat serviced with

Butler Marine currently offering a winter service special.

John lives in Prebbleton and provides a drop-off, pick-up service from

the village, saving Selwyn District residents the long drive across

town. Contact Butler Marine for details.

“Our friendly, accommodating staff are more than happy to assist you

with all your everyday boating needs, and you’re welcome to come in

and see Dave, Brett, Sandy or myself.”

SELWYN TIMES

Have your say on

Malvern and Ellesmere’s

future development

Help us plan for community

spaces in Eastern Selwyn

Selwyn residents are being invited to take part in a survey to help

identify Eastern Selwyn’s current and future community space

needs as this area grows.

The survey will be used to help develop a Community Spaces

Plan for Eastern Selwyn which is expected to be released for

consultation this spring. The survey asks people how they currently

use community spaces and what activities they would like to do

locally but don’t currently. Community spaces are areas available

for community use and include libraries, community centres, halls,

meeting rooms, parks, church grounds, and can include commercial

spaces such as cafes and markets if they are used for community

activities. Eastern Selwyn extends from Rolleston to West Melton in

the north, Prebbleton and Lincoln to the east and Springston in the

south. People living outside of Eastern Selwyn who use community

spaces in this area can also complete the survey.

The survey is open until 27 May and can be completed at

www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay. Everyone who completes the

survey will go into the draw to win a $100 petrol voucher.

We are also gathering information from people for the community

spaces project at these locations this week:

· On Wednesday 11 of May at Rolleston Countdown from 11.30am-

1pm and Prebbleton Dairy from 2.30-4pm

· On Friday 13 May from 10.30am – 12noon at Selwyn Aquatic Centre

· On Saturday 14 May from Lincoln Farmers Market from 11am –

12.30pm and the Warehouse Rolleston from 2-3.30pm

The Council is also surveying community organisations and local

facilities as part of the project.

The Council

is inviting

submissions on

draft Area Plans

for Malvern and

Ellesmere

The Area Plans will guide the growth of townships in Ellesmere

and Malvern through to 2031. They include options for where

residential and business development could occur, if needed,

and future projects that may be needed in different townships.

Although the plan does not rezone any land, it will inform the

District Plan Review, which starts this year, along with other

Council plans.

Some of the ideas included in the Area Plans which we would

like your comments on include:

· carrying out town centre studies in Leeston, Darfield, Springfield and Southbridge looking at

issues like transport, beautification, accessibility to community facilities and business land in

Darfield and Springfield

· working with Kiwirail and the NZ Transport Agency to look at issues relating to the State

Highway and railway line in Dunsandel, Sheffield and Kirwee

· in Darfield looking at infill or intensification opportunities close to the town centre to provide

more housing options such as housing for older people, and also the feasibility of establishing a

walking/cycling link between McHughs Forest Park and the town along the rail corridor

To find out more, you can pick up a copy of the draft Area Plans from Council library/service

centres or read it at www.selwyn.govt.nz/areaplans. We also holding drop-in sessions where

you can find out more about the plans and talk to our staff. These sessions are at:

· Dunsandel Rugby Clubrooms on Wednesday 18 May at 6.30pm

· Leeston Library Community Room on Sunday 22 May at 1pm

· Southbridge Hall on Thursday 26 May at 6.30pm

· Darfield Recreation Centre on Sunday 29 May at 1pm

· Glentunnel Hall on Monday 30 May at 6.30pm

· Springfield Hall on Wednesday 1 June at 6.30pm

· Darfield Recreation Centre on Thursday 2 June at 6.30pm

Submissions are open until 12 noon on Monday 13 June

2016. You can make a submission online at

www.selwyn.govt.nz/areaplans or pick up a submission

form from a Council library or service centre.

What arts activities would

you like in Selwyn?

Arts and culture play an integral role in building

community spirit, developing social networks

and providing opportunities for enjoyment in the

community.

The Selwyn Arts Trust and Selwyn District Council

have developed a new survey to help identify how arts

can be improved and developed in our district. We

appreciate people taking a few minutes to complete the

survey which is online at www.selwynartstrust.org.nz

On the roads this week

Road repairs are planned along Dalethorpe, Wards, Hills and

Beethams Roads, with traffic controls in place during works. Bridge

maintenance work will take place on Waimakariri Gorge Bridge and

Cordys Road Bridge, with traffic controls in place.

Road closures – Jones, Courtenay and Malvern Hills Roads

Jones Road will be closed between Weedons Ross and Hoskyns

Roads to allow Fulton Hogan to complete the final stage of work

for a new rail siding for MidlandPort (owned by Lyttleton Port

Company). The road closure is from 9am Saturday 14 May until

6am Monday 16 May. A detour will operate via Weedons Ross,

Maddisons and Hoskyns Roads during the closure. Drivers are

encouraged to use this detour for safety reasons and should expect

a short increase in travel times.

The railway crossing on Courtenay Road in Kirwee (near the

intersection with State Highway 73) will also be closed from 7am

Sunday 22 May until 7am Monday 23 May. The closure has been

requested by Kiwirail so they can repair sleepers under the crossing.

A detour will operate via Miles Road through either Highfield Road

or Ansons Road to connect to Kirwee on State Highway 73. Tara

Bridge (south west of Bush Gully Road) on Malvern Hills Road will

be closed from 10-23 May while the bridge deck is replaced.

The new rail siding for MidlandPort on Jones Road

Total fire ban now in place

A prohibited fire season is now in place in Selwyn, effective from

8am Monday 9 May.

This means that no outdoor fires or crop stubble fires can be lit in

the district. Fires are also not permitted in Council reserves, and no

fireworks, bonfires or pizza ovens are allowed. Fire permits previously

issued by the Council are cancelled. Gas barbeques with a high

pressure water source at hand are allowed but not charcoal barbeques.

Fire restrictions have been reintroduced as low rainfall has resulted

in vegetation in Selwyn becoming very dry which when combined

with very dry soil means that fires can start easily and quickly get

out of control. A fee of $1150 can be charged for a fire call out if a

fire has been lit which breaches fire restrictions. This fee is provided

to local volunteer fire forces.

The pink socks may have helped Waihora when they played against Prebbleton last Saturday.

The Waihora senior men’s team traded their white and black socks for pink and black to honour their mums for

Mother’s Day, encouraging many mothers to watch.

The Waihora under 7s all girl team went along to the game, saluting the senior Waihora players with a guard of

honour with the help of their mothers.

The final score was Waihora 33 Prebbleton 3.

Photographer Karen Casey went along.

in the industry. It’s through this experience that Onyx Homes wants to bring to their customers a better

standard of home that is often less than the standard-plan-built homes of their competitors. Onyx believe

that everyone is unique, so why settle for a standard-plan-home when you can have a purpose-designed

plan to suit exactly your lifestyle and for less than a standard plan? A perfect fit!

This is testament to our customers who have been amazed at the savings with Onyx, but also hadn’t realised

their budget would allow for a such quality spec and design.

This show home uses products never seen before

with massive points of difference.

A gymnast turned hammer

thrower from Lincoln University

will compete in Poland.

Lauren Bruce, 19, is heading

to Bydgoszcz to take part in the

World Under-20 Athletic Championships.

Bruce bettered the international

qualifying distance at the nationals

and recent Australian championships

and will now represent

New Zealand as she competes

against others from around the

world.

She took up hammer throwing

five years ago and her 58m throw

has her ranked as the second nationally

and to throw that far she

practices up to five times a week.

Bruce juggles practice with

studying full time for a Bachelor

of Science, majoring in food science.

Getting into the team has been

a goal for several years and is

looking forward to competing.

“It is a privilege to be able to

have the opportunity to represent

New Zealand on the world stage

and I am looking forward to the

experience and the challenges it

will bring,” she said.

Bruce is heading over to Poland

on a month long trip in July

to compete and hopes to bring

home a gold. She has set her

sights on competing in the 2020

Olympics in Tokyo.

Many people ask about who can see a

chiropractor? My answer is always –

anyone of any age.

From babies following delivery to older

people who are suffering from pain or

discomfort, chiropractic care can alleviate

stress within the body and ensure you are

functioning at your optimum ability.

Since starting work as a chiropractor

more than 15 years ago, after studying

in New Zealand to become a Doctor of

Chiropractic, I have treated people of all

ages with a broad range of symptoms with

outstanding results.

Southern

CHIROPRACTIC

290 HALSWELL ROAD

There are a variety of reasons people come

to see me including the following:

Suffering discomfort or pain

These symptoms are signs of dysfunction

in your body. This is an important time to

remove nerve interference and irritation to

ensure your spine functions optimally and

symptoms are alleviated.

Accident or trauma

Car or bike accidents and falls can cause

severe spinal stress and subluxations If not

attended to these can cause or contribute

to health problems later in life.

Active exercise/sport

Chiropractic care gives you an

edge. Many professional athletes

and sportspeople seek regular

chiropractic care to ensure they

are working at their optimum.

290 Halswell Road

Chiropractic care suitable for all ages

require care following delivery. Caring for a

baby or infant can contribute to neck and/or

back pain ie: position of mother during breast

feeding and bending to pick up baby.

I provide physical solutions including

adjustments, stretches, exercises, and

muscle therapy – to readjust the body or help

it heal from conditions that are physical in

origin. These can include problems such as

back pain, muscle spasms, headaches and

poor posture.

What you may not know is that it is also

completely appropriate to receive chiropractic

care even though you may not have

symptoms. Unlike standard medical doctors

who you visit when you have symptoms

that need to be treated, chiropractors offer

adjustments to improve spinal alignment and

overall wellbeing – and can prevent the pain or

other symptoms even starting.

Grow beetroot in garden or pots

TOD PALENSKI

I’ve always thought beetroot

to be an interesting vegetable.

It’s incredibly versatile

in the kitchen. The root can

be grated raw into a salad,

roasted with winter vege,

made into a chocolate cake

and more, and the leaves can

be used in the same way you

would use spinach.

It’s also incredibly good for

you. It’s a good source of folic

acid, fibre, manganese and potassium

and the greens are rich

in calcium, iron and vitamins

A and C.

There are two main types of

beetroot. The regular round

kind and the less known

cylindra variety which, as it’s

name suggests, is a cylindrical

beetroot. Because of it’s shape

cylindra beetroot is great for

slicing and then bottling.

Next it’s simply a matter of

working out where to plant

your seedlings. Beetroot likes

well-drained, friable (breaks

apart in your hands) soil.

It grows well next to

brassicas, like broccoli and

cauliflower, which take longer

to mature and spread out. This

means you can plant beetroot

in the spaces in between your

brassicas, and harvest them

RICH IN NUTRIENTS: Cylindra (above) or the more rounded variety

are both healthy vegetables.

before the brassicas start needing

the extra room.

Alternatively, it grows great

in pots. Wherever you plant,

simply dig a little 3cm deep

hole, place the seedling in the

hole and fill in with soil.

Beetroot likes moisture as it

starts to develop so keep your

plants well watered.

In around 10 to 12 weeks

it should be ready. The great

thing about beetroot is it can

be eaten at any size, just dig it

up and enjoy.

It’s easy to grow peas

VERSATILE: Plant plenty of peas. Whatever you don’t enjoy fresh can be

frozen.

Rachel Vogan goes

green with envy

over peas

These tiny morsels of goodness

are an easy crop grow at home,

the office or at school. If left to

my own devices I could easily fill

half the magazine with growing

tips, virtues, anecdotes, facts,

funnies and figures about peas.

However, I don’t really want

to bore you to tears and put you

off peas for life. If you have

never tried growing your own

peas, you must give them a go. In

spite of looking so delicate, pea

plants are surprisingly hardy.

Try and get peas in the ground

before the end of May if you

live in the colder regions, that

way you can enjoy them months

before Christmas.

Sow successive crops once

every six weeks to extend the

harvest period. Allow 10-15cm

– about a palm width – between

each plant, as they need air and

light to stimulate leaf growth.

Ensure the area gets plenty of

sun. All peas enjoy a rich soil that

holds onto moisture, which isn’t

normally a problem over winter,

unless you have sandy soils into

which you will need to blend

bucket-loads of compost and/or

animal manure. And plant plenty!

Pea shoots are tasty additions

to salads and sammies, plus they

are an easy microgreen and are

popular eaten just at the sprout

stage.

For those who plant them

regularly, please do me a favour

and share the love and ease of

growing them with a neighbour,

friend or colleague and encourage

them to get sowing some soon.

Types to try

Blue Shelling – a Dutch

vintage variety that can be eaten

in the pod whole when young or

podded. The flowers are edible,

too. One to plant for looks alone.

Earlicrop Massey – a reliable

dwarf variety to plant out now.

It produces a hefty crop and

matures early.

Greenfeast – if you like big

fat peas then plant this one. It

definitely needs staking as plants

mature well over 1m.

Easy Peasy – almost too good

to be true, a main crop choice

that produces masses of peas in

each pod.

Novella – another dwarf

variety. You can get away without

staking this one. It produces

a good sweet crop and what I

especially like how the pods

are all on the top of the bush,

which makes them super easy to

pick.

Snow pea Kennedy Dwarf

– this is a popular cultivar from

Kings Seeds. Only reaching knee

height it has a high yield and

copes with cooler conditions.

Sugar snaps – these sweet

juicy peas can be eaten pod and

all, or, if they are left a bit longer,

fat peas will form in the shell and

these can be used in the normal

way.

Wando Select – a super-sweet

heirloom shelling pea variety

that produces a good number of

peas in each pod. Sow either in

autumn or spring.

What’s a pean?

These are not actually peas,

but a hybrid of the runner bean,

with the distinctive flavour of

fresh peas. They are usually only

available in limited numbers

from mail-order catalogues or

heirloom stockists, sought after

as they produce a prolific crop,

and pods and all can be eaten.

Support as you would runner

beans – these vines are rampant.

Seed is best sown in spring.

TREATING

Grass

Grub

GraSS Grub can be a pain!

The recommended treatment for grass

grub is to use a soil insecticide such

as Lawn Guard. There are several in

the garden centres available, usually

containing the same active ingredient,

but with their own brand name.

Ask the local garden centre for their

recommendation, and then FOLLOW

THE INSTRUCTIONS very carefully! Now

is a great time to treat grass grub while

the weather is still warm. It is a good

idea to treat the whole lawn, then give

it a sprinkle of fertiliser afterwards.

Intelligro’s Lawn Fertiliser is excellent for

creating a lush lawn. Come down and

grab a bag, even if you aren’t treating

for grass grub, if your lawn needs a

boost, get in and fertilise it now.

OPPORTUNITY

AVAILABLE

Intelligro Landscape Centre is looking for someone to join our team

full-time (up to 40 hours) in our retail sales area. Days are flexible, but

Seeds

Peas are super easy and

quick to grow from seed and,

at this time of year, plants

are not in the shops, so you

don’t have much choice. Most

people tend to plant them out

in spring, however, they are a

good crop

for those who want to keep

growing food over winter.

Pre-soaking pea seed speeds

up germination. Soak them in

water over night to soften the

seed coat, making it easier for

the first roots and shoots to

break out. Encourage kids to

plant them – the seeds are nice

and big, and easy to handle.

Save your own pea seeds,

they store well and germinate

easily. Make sure they fully

mature on the plants in the

pods before you pick them,

as the seeds need to be hard

before you harvest them.

Slimeballs and

feathered foes

Slugs and snails just love

the soft shoots of peas, so arm

yourself with plenty of bait or

lay grit or eggshells around

the plants to deter these pests.

Neither of them like crawling

over sharp surfaces.

Birds, especially sparrows,

find pea shoots and seeds

rather tasty. Drape some

netting over the rows or put

some twigs alongside the rows

to keep them out. Once the

plants are well up, the birds

give them a wide berth.

Support network

Pea plants ideally should be

kept off the ground to keep

slugs and snails at bay and

to ensure the best harvesting

capacity. They are easy to train

up frames, twigs or bamboo

canes, or look to specialist

frames or pieces of trellis.

Other options are to grow them

up through other vegetables

– kale and cavolo nero offer a

good robust framework – and

they do the job well at this

time of year.

Sow new pea seed now. Get them in before the ground freezes; The Blue

Shelling pea (above) looks as good as it tastes. Hailing from Holland, this

one can be eaten shell and all when young; Peans (left) taste like peas, but

are actually a bean; Peas are easy to train up almost anything – even other

vegetables such as kale.

New technology for Toyota Prado

Toyota’s engine developers are

in the process of rolling out new

power plants which will work

across a variety of vehicles and

platforms.

In the last year we have seen a

new turbocharged four-cylinder

petrol unit which is finding its

way into several models out of

the Lexus stable, and there’s

also a new four-cylinder diesel

which is powering the new

Hilux.

Interestingly, that engine first

found its way here mid-year

in the Land Cruiser Prado, it

is an option alongside the V6

petrol unit. The diesel unit is

all-new, and while its displacement

is smaller – 227cc down

to 2755cc, it is stronger, more

economical, and notably quieter

than the previous unit.

And that is important for

Prado, it is still the large, comfortable

sport utility which is

based on mechanicals engineered

to tackle the serious offroad

challenge.

Toyota rate the new diesel

with power outputs of 130kW

and 450Nm, both hefty increases

on the outgoing (127kW and

410Nm), and the points at

which they are realised are more

accessible, very low down at

3400trpm and 1600-2400rpm.

The Prado also gets a new

gearbox, it is a six-speed unit

which is up a gear from previous

generation models, the new

driveline combination is a cracker,

and given I’ve spent a lot of

time in Hilux recently, as well

as the Prado, I’ve become rather

fond of the new mechanicals.

However, the Prado has a different

role to play than Hilux,

it is one of the SUV champions

in our marketplace. It is just at

home dropping the kids off at

school as it is it out in the backblocks.

The newcomer comes well

equipped if you take into

account the series starts at

$78,490 for the GX model as

tested, ranging to $99,990 for a

VX Limited. Bear in mind there

is also a V6 petrol-powered

model at $89,490, providing a

wide-ranging choice with varying

specification levels.

However, the Prado is all

about cross-country ability and

I did squeeze in enough time to

put it through a solid clay Port

Hills track. There are a multitude

of drive configurations

on the Prado, all well tried and

tested over the years. Put simply,

TOYOTA PRADO: Serious off-road challenger.

the Prado always drives through

all four wheels.

There is a high and low ratio

dial which selects between the

two, there’s also a centre differential

lock for low grip situations

and hill descent control

system. The latter is my favourite,

it enables a feet-off-the-pedals

approach to descents.

The Prado sits high off the

ground at 220mm and it has

tyres (215/60 x 18in), and suspension

which command grip

off-road. An independent wishbone

front end combines well

with a coil spring-located live

rear axle.

The test car easily accounted

for a steep incline, it wasn’t a

testing track, for it was dry and

the surface provided plenty of

bite. But I can report that over

the rough stuff the in-cabin ride

is plush and is totally unaffected

by the jolts the suspension

absorbs. Like its stablemate, the

Land Cruiser proper, the Prado

is an off-road champion. It also

handles comparatively well

on-road, it does lean a little but

steerage always feels controlled,

and the bulk of the vehicle

doesn’t always seem apparent.

While the Prado does everything

well in terms of on and

off-road travel, it’s the new

engine which is the surprise.

Overall, the Prado travels quietly

but never before has it been

this quiet, the engine barely

makes a sound until it is well

loaded.

It’s that ability to do its job

without effort that makes the

new diesel engine so desirable,

especially so with its fuel usage

statistics. Toyota claims an

eight-litre per 100km (35mpg)

combined cycle average,

although I couldn’t get close to

that at 10l/100km (29mpg).

I don’t know when I’ll find

my way into another car (Hilux

aside) with a new Toyota engine,

but if the latest batch is anything

to go by it should be something

to look forward to.

Toyota, including Lexus, is

on a journey at the moment

whereby the power plants are

cross-pollinating through a wide

product line-up. The consumer

will be the ultimate winner with

so much choice and so many

desirable packages in terms of

DEALER FINANCE LIMITED

Dealer Finance Limited and the Commerce Commission have entered into a settlement agreement relating to

overcharged interest on loans. This resulted from Dealer Finance not crediting part repayments made by borrowers

against the unpaid balance of the loan as soon as practicable, and as a consequence, overcharging interest to the

borrower.

If you purchased a vehicle through one of the car dealers listed below between April 2005 and April 2015, which was

financed through Dealer Finance, you may be entitled to a refund of any overcharged interest, together with a 5%

uplift payment.

Dealer Finance has recently sent notification to all affected clients by mail. If you have not received this notification

please contact Dealer Finance by email on enquiries@dfl.co.nz to find out whether you are entitled to a refund.

Please include your full name, current and previous addresses, and if known, the car dealer you purchased your car

through and the vehicle registration number.

PLEASE NOTE - NO contact is required from you:

• if you still have a current open loan(s) with Dealer Finance; or

• if you have previously repaid a loan(s) with Dealer Finance (taken out between above dates) but have a current

loan(s) with Dealer Finance,

as we will be crediting your open loan or we have made or are in the process of making appropriate internal

adjustments.

A copy of the settlement agreement can be found on www.comcom.govt.nz

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

An ideal family home

For those entering the new

home property market and looking

for a medium sized home then G

J Gardner homes’ show home at

rolleston is worth a look. situated in

the popular Faringdon subdivision,

this is a well-designed functional

house.

This 198 square metre show home is

based on the “Maxwell” design from

G J Gardner’s “Family” series of plans.

While many people focus on what

the exterior will look like it’s more

essential to get the floor plan and

layout of your home right,” says

Neil Fraser, who along with his wife

Joanne, own the Christchurch south

G J Gardner franchise. “The layout

will affect the way you live in the

home and can impact on the overall

cost”.

The show home is fitted out using

G J Gardner’s “express specification”

range of products selected from some

of New Zealand’s leading suppliers

with no compromise on quality whilst

still being cost-effective. As a result,

the homes are competitively priced

making them ideal for young people

and first home buyers

This show home is clad with brick

veneer, which is currently one of

the most affordable claddings that

not only looks good but is also very

durable. The stack bonded exterior

feature wall leading to the entrance

highlights one of the different

variations that can be achieved with

brick cladding.

The design of this home is ideal for

family living. on entering through

the front door, there is a feeling of

spaciousness with open plan living

from the slightly separated lounge

right through to the family living

room on the other side of the kitchen/

dining area. The kitchen is wellappointed,

overlooking the dining

and two separate living areas and also

has a large pantry offering fabulous

storage

There is good indoor outdoor flow

from the family/dining area as well as

the main bedroom.

The master bedroom has an ensuite

and walk-in robe while the main

bathroom has both bath and shower.

The fourth bedroom is slightly

separated from the other three

making it an ideal guest room, study

or extra sitting room.

The separate laundry is well-sited

near the double garage for dumping

dirty sports or work clothes on

entering the house. There is also

ample storage space with the hot

water cylinder cupboard conveniently

located in the hall, opposite the

bathroom and close to the laundry.

G J Gardner’s rolleston show home

is located at 1 eversham Drive in

Faringdon. It is open from Wednesday

through to sunday, 12 noon until

4 pm.

Now ThaT The

heaTiNg’s oN

At the first taste of winter’s chill, we start preparing for hibernation. Adding

warmth to your home, however, is not just about choosing the right heating,

but also the creation of a scrumptious winter haven that invites you to

hunker down with creature comforts.

A home might be warm and dry, but

as we transition from summer to winter

there is that lack of cosiness to our homes.

By following a few simple steps you can

enhance and create more warmth within

your home.

11

Roll out the Rugs

hardwood floors and tiles are brilliant

during the summer months, but come

winter, your feet are likely to feel a little

different. using large rugs in the main

areas of your home will help to insulate

a room and keep your feet warm. The

textured look of a rug will also add a feel

of cosiness to a room.

Add textuRe

Just as you do with winter fashion,

creating warmth in your interiors is all

about adding texture.

In your bedroom, swap your summer

duvet for a thick, plush winter one, then

finish the look with layers of throws and

cushions.

Invest in good-quality throws. Choose

a few that match the décor in your home,

and then literally throw them over

couches and beds. The more they look

like you just dropped them on the couch

or bed, the better they look – hence the

name ‘throw’! There is a great range of

cosy faux-fur throws on the market this

winter, too.

If you don’t already have one, get a

footstool. If you have one, recover it in

durable thick fabric – we love a good

tartan print.

let the lIght In

When sunlight passes through the glass of

your window it bounces off your walls and

furniture, and gradually turns into heat.

This heat will make a big difference to the

temperature of your home. to make the

most of it, open your blinds or curtains in

the morning, and close them back up at

night.

lighting is important to set the scene.

A few lamps dotted around living spaces

will provide the relaxed, low-level lighting

ideal for such areas. Add sparkle at nighttime

with fairy lights, and some flickering

candles for an intimate feel.

Incorporating show homes in

your planning process

There are many things to think about when you’re

considering building a new home.

Browsing show homes is a fantastic

way to get you thinking about practicalities,

needs, aesthetics and your wish list! here

are a few consideration’s to help spark your

planning process.

• what is your exterior style? what kind of

homes do you like? Look around and take a

mental note of what you are drawn to most.

• what kind of exterior materials do you

like? once you’ve worked out the look you

like, research what materials are available

and find out about durability.

• how will you use your house? it’s important

to most people to have a good indoor/

outdoor flow and attractive, sheltered

outdoor living. imagine your home in

various seasons.

• Landscaping is important. Look around

and consider what you like and don’t like.

Are you a structured formal garden type or

do you like a contemporary native style?

• sustainability and future-proofing aren’t

just buzzwords anymore. it’s very important

for your new home to be environmentally

friendly. research insulation requirements,

solar hot water heating, ventilation options

and new technology to ensure your home

will be affordable to run.

• interior décor is really exciting. This is

where show homes can really help you get

to know current trends, colours, beautiful

furnishings and furniture. Collect home

magazines and figure out what you’d love

to emulate.

• Also, pause to give thought to architectural

components inside. Do you remember a

raised ceiling? what kind of finishing do

top homes use and which styles are you

drawn to?

• heating is also a consideration. have a look

at what show homes are offering.

• Kitchens form the heart of the house. show

homes give you insight into the latest styles,

materials and storage facilities available.

• Bathrooms are another big component.

They need to be as luxurious as you can

make them, so start dreaming.

Kitchens form the heart

of the house. show

homes give you insight

into the latest styles,

materials and storage

facilities available.

Proud to have been building

homes for Cantabrians

for more 25 years.

A FREE

TRIP TO FIJI

with every Onyx Home!

A PERFECT FIT!

A purpose-designed plan to suit your

lifestyle - for LESS than a standard plan!

The management team of Onyx Homes are quite simply some of the best and most experienced people in the industry. It’s through this

experience that Onyx Homes wants to bring to their customers a better standard of home that is often less than the standard-plan-built homes

of their competitors. Onyx believe that everyone is unique, so why settle for a standard-plan-home when you can have a purpose-designed

plan to suit exactly your lifestyle and for less than a standard plan? A perfect fit!

This is testament to our customers who have been amazed at the savings with Onyx, but also hadn’t realised their budget would allow for a

such quality spec and design.

NEW SHOW HOME OPEN

HOURS : Wednesday – Sunday, 11am to 4pm at 1 Oak Drive, Flemington Lincoln.

This show home uses products never seen before with massive points of difference.
