This year’s Miss Famous Grouse winner Zoe

Harty, 21, is more than just a pretty face. Ms

Harty, an applied science student at Lincoln

University, is not sure yet what she will use her

degree for and said she would “see where it

takes me.” After growing up on her family farm

in central Hawkes Bay, Ms Harty studied first

at Massey before making the move to Lincoln

this year. Having signed up for the Miss Famous

Grouse competition, she was shocked to be

announced as the winner. Ms Harty was up

against 12 others in the final on Thursday night.

She planned to spend some of her $2000 prize

money on clothes and put the rest towards an

overseas trip.

Christchurch City Council

had previously allowed freedom

camping in five locations around

the city and Banks Peninsula

but in May it decided to ban the

practise until at least May 2017

while it reviews its bylaw.

prepared for tomorrow’s meeting

noted that other Canterbury

councils had also been reviewing

whether they would permit freedom

camping this summer.

Earlier this year the district

council indicated that it could

introduce a freedom camping

bylaw in time for this summer

but chief executive David

Ward said it was now looking at

promoting responsible freedom

camping instead.

Mayor Kelvin Coe said he believed

the district was prepared

to cope with the extra numbers

but “time will tell.”

District councillor Sam

Broughton, who was part of

a working party on freedom

camping, said Lake Coleridge

was one area where the district

council could do more to address


He had suggested that staff

look at the possibility of a “temporary

pop-up camping facility

to allow space for people in summer”

in the lake area.

Over the next few months the

district council plans to improve

signage around the district,

partly to give more clarity on

what acceptable and responsible

camping practises are, and new

public toilets will be built at Coes

Lincoln VC winner

will be commemorated

THE BELGIUM village where

a Lincoln soldier was awarded

the Victoria Cross for gallantry

in 1917 will be commemorated

by a party of New Zealanders

taking part in the 100th

commemorative tour

of the Western Front

next year.

Private Henry

James Nicholas

(right), received the

VC for outstanding

bravery during an

attack on Polderhoek

Chateau on December

3, 1917.

Professor of war

studies at Massey University,

Glyn Harper, said the “on tour

historian” accompanying the

commemorative tour, will

describe the action that took

place there following the Battle

of Passchendaele.

The tour party will commemorate

the heroism of Private

Nicholas and lay a wreath

at a monument to the Kiwis

who lost their lives at La Basse-

Ville, a village close to Messines,

where another New Zealand

soldier, Corporal Leslie Andrew,

was also awarded the VC.

The 10-day centenary tour

which commemorates the Battle

for Passchendaele, where the

New Zealand Division suffered

2700 casualties including 845

fatalities, is being

organised by Stephen

Parsons House of

Travel. It starts in

Paris on October 7,

2017, and departs

from Brussels on

October 16.

The tour visits

a number of battlefields

and memorials,

attends the

official Battle of Passchendaele

Commemoration and visits the

grave of 1905 All Back Captain,

Dave Gallaher.

Private Nicholas was the first

Cantabrian to receive the VC. A

member of the 1st Battalion of

the Canterbury Regiment, he attacked

a German machine gun

post single-handedly, shooting

the officer in command and

overcoming the remainder

of the 16-man garrison with

bombs and bayonets, capturing

four wounded prisoners and the

machine gun.

He received the VC from

King George V “for most

conspicuous bravery and

devotion to duty in attack.” As

Sergeant Nicholas, he was killed

in a minor skirmish only 19

days before the end of World

War 1.

Leslie Andrew survived

World War 1 as a second

lieutenant and remained in the

military until being appointed

commander of 22nd Battalion

in 1940. His battalion saw

limited action during the Battle

of Greece but was involved in

the defence of Maleme airfield

in Crete which was eventually

overrun by German forces.

He relinquished command of

the 22nd Battalion in February

3, 1942 and returned home

to command the Wellington

Fortress Area. He died in

Palmerston North on January

8, 1969.

Poor visibility,

are thought to be factors in the

death of a man hit by a car west of

Templeton last month.

Todd Jackson, 48, was visiting

from Queensland where he had

been living for the last 10 years,

when he died on August 26.

Mr Jackson was walking along

Newtons Rd when he was struck by

a car driven by an 18-year-old man

who lived in the Rolleston area.

Police will not decide on whether

charges will be laid until a serious

Sergeant Grant Stewart said

visibility had been poor when Mr

Jackson was struck, as it was about

6.50am. This along with where he

was and his “unfortunate” choice

of clothing – a camouflage top and

dark pants – were thought to be

contributing factors.

Alcohol was not a factor and

speed was not suspected to be either,

but the investigation was yet to

formally reach that conclusion.

SELWYN TIMES Tuesday September 27 2016 5

In the lead up to local body elections in October, The Selwyn Times will be

regularly putting a question to each of the five Selwyn mayoral candidates.

This week’s question relates to the $13.84 million the district council has

loaned to the Central Plains Water (CPW) scheme in recent years. We asked

the candidates whether they thought the loans had been a good decision and

how they would feel about the district council making further loans in future to

other private organisations or schemes.

Deputy mayor

Sarah Walters:

The council has

been involved

in a number of

different funding

arrangements and

my stance has

varied depended on the circumstances.

I voted in favour of the current

loan for the design of stage two

as it had potential benefits for

community water supplies and

unlocked funding from outside

the district.

There are other councillor roles

related to the scheme than just

being a money lender, including

approving the Central Plains

Water Trust’s annual statement of

intent and a joint committee with

Christchurch City Council as

joint settlors of the trust.

I have been closely involved

with both as my aim is to ensure

the benefits of the scheme are

spread as widely as possible and

the negatives are minimised as

much as possible.

Pat McEvedy:

I have supported

loaning money to

CPW on two occasions.

I think that in

both situations that decision has

been vindicated. Both were for

design which commercial banks

do not cover and both attracted

substantial grants from government

which benefited the areas


The first loan has been fully

repaid and the second will be repaid

in the near future. Both were

on commercial terms with good

returns to council.

When weighing up the option

of proceeding with these loans

there were factors other than

financial to consider. One of these

was the environmental benefits

of seeing the water pumped from

deep bores returned to the environment.

I believe in future this

will be seen as a major improvement

to the freshwater aquifers in





25 %


Bill Woods:

The Selwyn

District Council

has over the years

invested considerable

money in

different projects

or schemes.

Some purely as guaranteed

bonds and others in companies

that have failed with a complete

loss to the council. Whether it is

called a loan or an investment the

council is still legally responsible

for its safekeeping.

I have no problem with the loan

to the CPW as it will provide a

return to the district. what I do

object to is the apparent lack of

security for the money.

If there is adequate security

of the people’s money I have no

objection to similar loans.

Elections 16



Sam Broughton:

It was a good

decision to lend

CPW money for

the various stages

of the scheme.

Council has a partnership role

to play in community development

and CPW offers the opportunity

for large scale employment

growth, land use diversification

and environmental sustainability

and monitoring.

Water taken from alpine rivers

is more sustainable than drawing

1000-year-old water from more

than 200m underground.

Water on farm can lead to

diversity and provides new horticultural

opportunities as well as

supporting and growing existing

agricultural uses.

Supporting local job growth

will help people travel less, keep

dollars earned in the district and

bring new people into our district,

growing our skill base.

I will make future decisions on

a case by case basis.



Debra Hasson:

CPW is a private

company. I don’t

support lending

ratepayer funds

to any private

company. The reason, rates are

collected for service delivery and

under the Local Government

(Rating) Act, if you can’t pay,

council has the ability to charge

payment against your property.

This is different from a decision

where you may choose to borrow

money to invest in a company for

capital gain as a personal choice.

I see council’s role as supporting

all private businesses equally,

through District Plan provisions

and fees and charges under council’s

(10 year), Long Term Plan.

Central Government should have

accepted responsibility for this


I realise my decision was a

minority view but it represented

the thoughts of many in our community.

Water races under scrutiny

• By Tom Doudney

SELWYN’S WATER races are

the subject of increasing scrutiny

over whether they should be

kept open or closed.

Once the life blood of farming,

they are now considered more

of a nuisance by many land


The district council operates

three water race schemes: Malvern

(with 967km of water race),

Paparua (469km) and Ellesmere


Since a moratorium on water

race closures ended in August

2014, its water race sub committee

has approved the closure of

75km of water race, 4 per cent of

the total network, at the request

of ratepayers.

Many farmers prefer using

piped water but are still charged

rates on water races they are

connected to.

Additionally, the requirement

to keep stock out of water races

presents another issue that

farmers have to manage, while

water races that run through the

middle of farms are obstacles

to the movement of vehicles,

machinery and animals.

However, water races also

provide environmental benefits,

worth for many farmers. Inset: Nigel Barnett ​

be used as a source of water for

fighting fires.

Water race sub committee

chairman Nigel Barnett said the

previous moratorium had been

introduced because the district

council had been getting an

increasing number of requests

for closure and it needed time to

develop an appropriate process

for dealing with closures.

“The water race system was

originally put in place because

there was no other access to water

from stock but that situation


has changed immeasurably with

irrigation and well drilling,” Cr

Barnett said.

“With Central Plains Water

they are now able to supply stock

water from their pipeline.”

Under the district council’s

policy, if all land owners connected

to a particular section

of water race agree that they

want it closed, they can make

an application to the water race

sub committee. The wider public

must be consulted before a closure

can be approved.

The billboard scrolls between

Rural show’s first female president

It’s taken 146 years, but

the Ellesmere A&P Show

now has its first woman

president – Paula

McIlraith. She spoke to

Tom Doudney about

her long involvement

with the show, an

unfortunate accident she

had recently and how

she met her husband

through the show 47

years ago.

So I hear you’re the first

female president the show has


Yes, and I’ll be the first one on

crutches, too, because I’ve just

ruptured my Achilles tendon –

so it will be a double first.

That’s no good!

Yes, it’s a real pain because I’m

not allowed to bear weight on it

at all.

It sounds quite painful – how

did you do that?

Oh, I just jumped over a ditch.

But that’s life, you’ve got to get

on with it. After watching the

Paralympics, you think ‘I’ve got

nothing to moan about.’

What part of Selwyn do you

live in?

Past Southbridge, right down

on the coast.

What sort of farm have you

got there?

We are mainly cropping but we

run two sheep studs as well.

Have you been there for a


Well, I’ve been there for 45

years but the family started there

in 1878.

Do you know how many

generations that would have


Our son will be the fifth


Has your family had quite

a long association with the

Ellesmere A&P Show then?

My husband Alisdair’s

grandfather was on the

committee and my parents had

a Jersey stud and used to show

cows and bulls. That’s probably

why I got into showing as a kid

and it has gone on from there.

Was that quite a big deal to

you when you were young?

Yes, I just really enjoyed it.

Have you had a lot of

involvement with the

organising committees before


Yes, I have been on the

committee since about 1997.

Is being the show’s first

female president important to

SHOW FIRST: Paula McIlraith has been elected president of

the Ellesmere A&P Show.


I think it’s important for

women – whether it is me or

someone else wouldn’t matter. I

was also the first woman to go on

the committee.

So you’re a bit of a trendsetter

or a trailblazer then?

Yes (laughs). There are more

women on the committee now,

so that’s good.

What have you done outside

of farming?

I’ve played a lot of netball and

played representative netball for

Ellesmere, which is no longer

around. I was on the executive of

the Selwyn Netball Centre and

am a life member.

When did you become

president and has it been much

of a step up?

In March. It’s quite busy – so

far this year we have run a dairy

heifer competition, a ewe hogget

competition, we had a dog show

and a winter feed competition.

So it’s not all just about

“We have some amazing women

in our community who have

made a difference in people’s

lives,” Mrs McIlraith said.

“There are those who have

supported youth through education,

culture and sport. And

often acted unknowingly as role

models to these young people.”

Mrs McIlraith listed the likes

of Rosaline Brown who contributed

to the Ellesmere community

as a kaumatua, teacher and

historian, Dr Helen Dougal who

practised in Leeston in the 1950s

and later Dr Molly Prendergast.

She also paid tribute to the

contribution and effort of rural

women during wartime.

“My own mother, like many

others, farmed the land while

others ran the services allowing

them in a time of necessity to

prove they were capable and

adaptable,” she said.

Be prepared for

Spring wind storms

Damage from the September 2013 wind storm (photo courtesy of Orion)

September is the start of Spring. Strong winds can occur at any time of the year but gusty

nor’west winds are especially common in springtime.

In September 2013 Selwyn experienced its worst wind storm in nearly four decades, with winds

gusting over 150 kilometres an hour in some areas. This caused power outages to 28,000 homes

in Selwyn and Christchurch and extensive damage to trees and property.

The first step in being prepared is to check weather forecasts regularly so you know if strong wind

is forecast. To receive texts or emails warning of severe weather, you can join the Selwyn Gets

Ready website. The website also provides local community response teams with information on

who needs help in an emergency and what resources and skills are available in the community. To

join, visit

Orion is reminding property owners to trim trees near power lines. For information about who can

safely trim trees phone Orion on (03) 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

If strong winds are forecast there are a number of sensible steps you can take to help protect your

home and family:

· Bring outdoor furniture, rubbish bins and anything else that can be moved by wind indoors

· When the wind is strong stay indoors, closing windows and doors

· Power outages are common after high winds so be prepared for this. Check you have bottled

water, non-perishable food, a can opener, a first aid kit, a torch and essential medical supplies at

hand. You may also wish to fill bathtubs and sinks with water to flush the toilet

· Have a supply of torches and extra batteries handy. Do not use candles (they are a fire risk) or

kerosene lamps, which require ventilation and are not designed for indoor use

· Check for information and advice, power outage details are posted at If the power goes out listen to Radio New Zealand for information

· Stay off the roads if strong winds are forecast – driving may be dangerous due to fallen trees,

power lines and other hazards. Driving at night after a major wind storm should be avoided as

there could be hazards which you can’t see

· Don’t touch downed power lines - they may be live. Report these to Orion on 0800 363 9898.

The Council can be contacted on 347 2800 or 318 8338 if assistance is required. Power outages

should be reported to Orion on 0800 363 9898.

Rolleston Reserve plans move


The Council will recommend that the Minister of Conservation

exchange the reserve status on part of Rolleston Reserve for

land at Foster Park. The Council recently agreed to endorse the

recommendations made by a Council Hearing Panel, following the

hearing of submissions on the exchange proposal. The proposal will

soon be put forward to be reviewed by the Minister of Conservation.

A change of use at Rolleston Reserve has been proposed for some

time and was included in the 2014 Rolleston Town Centre Master

Plan and in the Land Use Recovery Plan.

The proposal would see the reserve status on 4.3 hectares of

Rolleston Reserve transferred to 30 hectares of land at Foster Park.

Rolleston Reserve was previously surplus Crown land which was

later vested in the Council and classified for recreation purposes.

The exchange would allow around half of Rolleston Reserve to be

redeveloped to allow the development of a range of shops, a town

square and new library. The remaining half of the reserve would

remain as green space to be developed over time into an iconic

park in the town centre. The playcentre, scout facility, tennis and

netball courts would remain at the reserve.

The exchange would formally designate Foster Park as a reserve.

The park will be developed over the next decade to provide more

sports fields, an indoor courts complex, a major playground,

walkways and cycleways and additional parking. Over time many of

the sports at Rolleston Reserve will shift to Foster Park or Brookside

Park. The Council also recently purchased 99 hectares on

Rolleston’s north east outskirts which will eventually be developed

into a large new park.

Consultation on the exchange occurred in June and July 2016,

with 59 submissions received. Submissions were considered by a

Hearing Panel made up of Planning Commissioner David Caldwell

and Councillor Nigel Barnett.

The Panel considered that overall, the exchange and the

development of Foster Park as a sports hub would result in a better

recreational outcome for the community than what is offered by

Rolleston Reserve currently as Foster Park is considerably larger

than Rolleston Reserve, and is well located for Rolleston and

Selwyn residents.

The Panel found that the shift of organised sport to Foster Park

would reduce the conflict between organised activities and

recreational/passive use of the park. The remaining section of the

park would be developed into a high quality and high amenity

park which could continue to be accessible to Rolleston School,

providing at least one open grassed space the area of a full-sized

playing field, and for informal recreation.

The Panel considered that parking at Rolleston Reserve should

be limited to what was required for users and community use and

not used for commercial parking. It also recommended that funds

from the development of part of Rolleston Reserve be used for the

redevelopment of part of the reserve into a high quality park and on

other reserves in Rolleston.

If the exchange is approved by the Minister, the development of

shops and commercial spaces could start from 2018/19 depending

on interest from developers and the process to relocate existing

sports activities to Foster Park. The new library is planned for

2018/19. The development of the retail and community spaces and

park is expected to take a number of years. A separate consultation

process is planned on the design of the redeveloped park.

ON THE BALL: New Zealand’s Davis Cup tennis captain Alistair Hunt,

team member Finn Tearney and Olympian Michael Venus visited

Terrace Downs Resort recently to attend a special event for children.

The children, who came from the Darfield, Methven and Ashburton

areas, played on the newly renovated plexipave tennis court. Resort

general manager Koji Kawamata said the children had been nervous

about meeting the tennis stars at first but soon warmed up and learned

a lot from them. “After 10 minutes they were really excited,” he said.

Terrace Downs Resort has recently been signed up as the Davis Cup

team’s naming rights sponsor for the second year in a row.

Rural girl face of fashion week

• By Annabelle Dick

FROM FARM girl to the

face of fashion week, Zara

Graham is a rural girl aiming

for international supermodel


The 17-year-old from Lincoln,

has been selected as the face

of the upcoming Canterbury

Fashion Beauty Week 2016 after

winning Canterbury Model of

the Year last year.

“It’s such an amazing honour,”

she said.

Miss Graham has been

modelling for four years with

the Canterbury Fashion Beauty

Week founders modelling

agency DS Model Management.

Miss Graham grew up in

Lincoln on a farm surrounded

by four brothers.

While she confesses she’s a

“bit of a tom-boy” who loves

the farm life and animals, she’s

always been passionate about

the fashion industry.

“I love how it makes me feel.

I love dressing up, having my

make up done, wearing amazing

clothes and definitely the

confidence that comes with it,”

she said.

Miss Graham is studying at

the National School of Aesthetics

and plans on following

the modelling

circuit overseas.


Zara Graham is the

face of Canterbury

Fashion Beauty

Week this year. ​

Her ultimate goal is to

become a Victoria’s

Secret angel.

Next month,

fashion houses

will show their collections ranging

from Cup Day fashion and

resort wear to plus size clothing.

Week founder and organiser

Denyse Saunders said this year

is the first time the show will

feature plus size models and


“It’s had a huge response and

it’s going to be really unique.

I think women are sick of

seeing young size six girls on

the catwalk that don’t smile or

have personality. We’ll see real

women who people can relate to

showing real clothes that they

can go and buy,” Ms Saunders


She said the major show will

feature lots of colour and men’s

and women’s wear to cater to all

This offer is available until the end of September. Tickets are available at the gate on the day.

School Holiday Garden Fun

School holidays, and the

growing season are upon us,

so what better way to get the

kids out enjoying the fresh

air than to get started on the

garden. Put them to good use,

as well as teaching them a

thing or two about gardening.

Raised veggie beds are a

fun way to get kids into gardening, and there

are a multitude of things that they can learn

while they are at it. They’ll learn about where

vegetables come from and how to grow them

for a start, and of course they’ll be rewarded

with yummy produce at the end of it!

While you are on a roll, don’t stop there!

Adding a layer of bark mulch to the garden now

will help to protect your plants from the heat

in the coming summer months.

Intelligro has a wide range of

barks available, so come down

and have a look. By putting a

layer of bark on, you will not only

help to suppress the weeds, but

you will also retain moisture in

the soil, reducing the chances

of your plants suffering due to

drought. If bark isn’t your thing,

we also have a great selection of stones and

chips that add character to your garden as well.

If your garden hasn’t had any compost added

to it recently, it is a good idea to add this and

mix through the soil prior to applying the bark

or stones.

Tomatoes like loads of sunlight

It’s time to focus on tomatoes. Seeds sown now

will produce delicious results. Don’t forget to

branch out and try a few different varieties says

Rachel Vogan

NOT ALL things in life need to

be hard. For some, the challenge

of growing your own ‘anything’

seems insurmountable; for

others, it is as natural as riding

a bike. The truth is that growing

tomatoes is easier than it seems.

All over the world, in the most

barren of soils (think Africa),

tomatoes are a staple crop grown

every year. And yet, somehow,

with extreme temperatures and

little or no water they seem to

produce a crop. So, how hard can

it be? Not that hard at all.

Like humans, most plants have

a few simple requirements to

flourish and thrive; the more you

put into something the more you

will get out of it. So if you fancy a

crop of Olympic proportions, roll

up your sleeves now and get to

work, arm yourself with the best

plants, soil, and fertiliser and

put aside some time and, in a

few months, you will be picking

fresh, sweet, tasty tomatoes.

Start with the best foundation.

After all, you wouldn’t build

a house on a flimsy base and

expect good results, would you?

For the best results tomatoes

need full sun, and loads of it.

It isn’t an option to plant them

anywhere shady, or in an area

with limited air movement.

Sunlight is required to initiate

the flower buds, aid in fruit

formation and development,

improve the plant’s ability to

photosynthesise, and, of course,

it helps ripen the fruit. So, no

room for compromise here.

The engine room of the tomato

is the root zone. Healthy roots is

where the plant finds its power

to grow. Not only do the roots

anchor the plant into the soil,

they are the main way in which

the plant absorbs nutrients – a

poor root system is often the

main reason a crop will fail.

For a good, robust root system,

prepare the soil as much as you

can. A simple dig over with the

fork is all that’s needed in the

garden – don’t go crazy adding

layers and layers of manure or

compost. Yes, these are good for

the soil, but they’re also laden

Why we love our public grounds

is tomato fertiliser. The trick to

getting more out of your tomato

fertiliser is working it into the

soil before you plant, rather than

sprinkling it on top of the soil

where it takes longer for the roots

to absorb it.

Simply plant the tomato. If

the plant is grafted, make sure

the graft piece is above the soil

to avoid it rotting off or being

damaged. Otherwise, as long as

the hole is bigger than the root

ball, there is nothing to it. Water

after planting. (If you have any

root-drenching seaweed liquid

left over, water, then in with


Being such vigorous plants,

tomatoes do need to be staked or

supported in some way. It helps

keep the fruit off the ground and

also to support the branches,

which become heavy as the crop

develops. In windy areas it also

helps prevent the plant from

snapping off or getting damages.

The bigger the stake the better.

Bamboo canes are okay at a push

– if using them, put in two or

three around each plant.

When it comes to watering,

less is more. Now, this will sound

nuts, but a good drench twice a

week is all that is needed for the

majority of the growing season.

Steam returns to Rolleston

for the 150th

Steam locomotives will once again call at

Rolleston on Saturday, 15th October for the

Rolleston Show and CultureFest Festival.

The first Rolleston Railway Station

officially opened in 1866, in response to

local farmers pressuring Government for

a way to transport their sheep to the sale

yards and port. Today, the line is a through

point for trains travelling south, a junction

for rail traffic to the West Coast and a feed

to the iPort and Midland Port terminuses.

“Mainline Steam will be bringing their

KA942 and JA1240 steam locomotives to

Rolleston. Locals will be able to look inside

Car section organiser, Bob Humm

and Councillor and 150th organising

Chairman, Jeff Bland check out the

MGB Roadster.

• Two great locations

• Collision repair specialists

• Free loan cars and vans

• Insurance repairs, smash repairs, rust

repairs, fibreglassing

• From motorbikes to horse floats

• No job is too big or small

• Open most Saturday mornings for

customer convenience

the cabs while Kiwirail will be exhibiting

machinery reflecting the various eras of

New Zealand rail history,” says organising

chairman, Jeff Bland.

JA1240 regularly stopped at Rolleston,

when it hauled goods and passengers

between Christchurch and Dunedin.

KA942 spent its working life on North

Island’s Main Trunk line from 1940 to 1967.

It was not until Mainline Steam acquired

and repaired the engine that it ran on South

Island rail tracks.

The 145 ton, KA 942 locomotive was built

as a coal burner but with coal shortages

after World War One, converted to oil in

1948. The KA series was an improvement

on earlier K class locomotives as roller

bearings rather than bronze bushes were

used on all axles.

JA1240 was the first JA class engine, built in

Dunedin in 1947. These locomotives which

had cross-compound air compressors and

roller bearings were reliable locomotives

on the South Island rail network, with a

haulage capacity of 1,000 tons of freight,

and 400 ton of passengers, on an easy grade.

JA1240’s journey with New Zealand

Railways ended at Rolleston in 1971, when

a crankpin bolt broke. The locomotive was

Father hands over

business reins

Local operators, Len and Cameron

Holland, have formally ended their

seventeen year business partnership.

In March this year, Len decided to take a

back seat and hand the reins over to his son

Cameron, to take the business forward into

the future.

Len has not gone into total retirement.

He will still be seen tinkering and working

on some old classics while the weight of

business responsibility is now in the hands

of Cameron who is enthusiastic about

taking Hollands Collision

Centre into the future.

Cameron is already

looking to further business

expansion so the business

grows as Rolleston and its

surrounding areas also

increase in size.

Drawings are currently

on Cameron’s desk for

the construction of a new

panel shop, just across the

road from their existing

operation which also has

changes occurring. This

includes a brand new

spray booth currently

being built in Italy and due

to arrive at the Rolleston

shop in early December.

This new spray booth will allow the

business to use water borne paints which are

not chemically enhanced with isocyanates.

“The water borne paints are much better

for the environment and therefore our

future,” adds Cameron who is enthusiastic

about this new development in his business.

“If using a water borne paint you need

a really good booth which will extract the

moisture out of the paint. This also helps the

paint on the vehicles to

dry as they are blow

dried rather than

heater dried.”

In addition to

new plant and a new

building, Cameron is

always keen to train up

new recruits with three

apprentices currently

learning the trade at

Hollands Collision

Centre. Cameron is

also keen to take on

another apprentice in

the near future.

Cameron is very

proud of the team he

currently has with

several of his workers

having completed close to, or over 10

years work with the company. He has also

recently promoted two of his employees

to supervisory roles: Jake Ackers as Panel

Shop Foreman and Shane Olive as Paint

Shop Foreman This will allow more

efficient management of the workers so

customers jobs are turned around quickly.

“I’m really keen to keep up with

current and future demand so that we are

always meeting the needs of the people

of Rolleston and those further afield,”

explains Cameron.

Honda’s new Civic attracts attention

• By Ross Kiddie

QUITE OFTEN a total stranger

will comment on a new car I’m


However, I wasn’t prepared for

the lengthy conversation I had

when I stopped outside my local

pharmacy to have a prescription


I was driving Honda’s brand

new Civic, and a man who had

sighted the car from the other

side of the street rushed over to

talk about the vehicle.

He was a Civic owner and

was very enthusiastic about the

newcomer. He knew all about

its technology and design, and

was delighted with its looks and


It’s fair to say he was probably

a buyer at some point, and he

wanted me to tell him all about

the car. At the time we met, the

car had not long been in my

care so I could only tell him the

basics, but one thing we both did

agree on was that the 10th-generation

Civic is something rather

special, especially in its design, its

sleek and dramatic styling is quite

simply stunning.

Bear in mind that at this stage

the Civic is only available as a

sedan, the hatchback version will

land next year. In the interim, the

sedan is sensational in terms of

visual appeal, even the basic-spec

S version looks great, the RS with

its sporty, add on elements really

do give the car some stature.

On the inside, the newcomer

isn’t quite so dramatic, it is more

conservative and typically Honda

– functional and practical. I’m

not saying it is plain, its design

is meant for a user-friendly

approach to use, and that it does

well. The dash panel and display

graphics do suggest that Honda,

as a design company, is branching

out a little, the digital elements

are deep and vivid.

In RS form, the Civic comes

with a high amount of spec, major

features include full leather trim,

heated front seats (also electrically

adjustable on driver’s side), cruise

control (active on range-topper),

dual-zone climate control, electric

sunroof and comprehensive multimedia

infotainment system, the

latter projected through a middash

7in touch screen. It also links

to Apple CarPlay.

The items for comfort and convenience

go a long way towards

an inviting in-cabin environment.

However, there is also a wealth

of unseen items which are there

for safety. Honda has an extensive

advanced active safety suite,

some features are available on the

top-of-the-range NT only, but on

the RS I particularly like the lane

watch camera which provides the

driver with an on-screen view of

HONDA CIVIC: Sporty styling for RS sedan.

what is rearwards of the car when

the left-side indicator is activated.

That’s a healthy list for a car

which comes in at $39,900. Take

into account, too, that the range

starts at $29,900 for the base

model and ends at $42,900 for

the all bells and whistles NT.

And the excitement doesn’t

finish there. Under the bonnet

sits a. 1.5-litre turbocharged

engine, there is a more traditional

naturally-aspirated 1.8-litre unit

as a lower grade option, but the

turbo engine would be the one

for me.

It is rated with a healthy

127kW of power with 220Nm of

torque listing all of the way from

1750rpm to 5500rpm. If you

take into account that the area of

peak power sits at just 5500rpm,

there is little fluctuation of power

anywhere in the rev band. That

is helped by a seamless flow of

gearing through the inclusion of

a continuously variable automatic

transmission, the turbo Civic has

dynamism not often associated

with mainstream vehicles.

Turbocharging is the modern

way of boosting power outputs

from small displacement engines,

along with providing respectable

fuel usage figures. Honda claims

a six-litre per 100km (47mpg)

combined cycle, which I suspect

would be quite realistic given

the 6.8l/100km (41mpg) figure

showing on the fuel usage readout

during evaluation time. At

100km/h the engine is working

• Price – Honda Civic RS,


• Dimensions – Length,

4644mm; width, 1799mm;

height, 1416mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,


1496cc, 127kW, 220Nm,

seven-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.2sec

• Fuel usage – 6l/100km

over quite relaxed at just rpm,

providing a 5l/100km (56mpg)


I took the test car inland to

State Highway 72 and enjoyed its

quiet motion and smooth ride. I

like fully independent suspension

systems, and the front-strut/rear

multiple link system in the Civic

has spring and damper rates

biased towards ride comfort, yet

they are set just firm enough to

control body movement when a

fast corner is presented.

The Civic in its latest iteration

is a class act; it had to be, Civic

has a huge reputation worldwide

for quality and practicality.

Undoubtedly, Honda will continue

to add to the series in body

shape and specification upgrades.

I simply can’t wait to find myself

behind the wheel of another as it

progresses through its lifecycle.

Selling your property?

First impressions count,

get rid of the clutter.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that getting rid of clutter is one of the keys to selling property

fast and at a good price. Good storage systems can look cool in their own right, and help organise your clutter.

Good storage ideas are abundant and

all manner of products are available

to make homes more minimalistic.

While it’s nice to buy your storage from

designer homewares stores, the likes

of The Warehouse and Kmart sell many

simple products for masking clutter.

Fabric storage cubes are a great start

for disguising the clutter. They fit neatly

into shelves and wardrobes and thanks

to competition from the big department

stores, can cost $10 or less each. You’ll

also find wicker, felt, cotton, woven and

metal baskets for a song.

Another clever idea, is to

buy a cheap set of melamine

shelves for use in your

wardrobe. A set of shelves

does much the same job as

an expensive wardrobe fit

out. You can move the shelf

heights to accommodate

shoes and boots. It looks

good, but costs little.

Another wardrobe

organisation is a Wardrobe

Starter Kit from Hardware

stores. While you’re there,

check out bicycle storage hooks as well.

As well as being practical, storage

products can make a design statement.

The important thing is to be consistent.

don’t, for example, buy storage cubes

in different colours. If you’re looking for

really clever home storage ideas take

a tip from the tiny home movement.

Catherine Foster who wrote Small House

Living, downsized her life to under 90sq

m and has interviewed Kiwis who live in

architecturally designed homes of that

size or smaller.

Each and every house in

Foster’s book uses storage

effectively to tame their

belongings. Some have done

it on the smell of an oily rag,

sometimes buying pre-cut heavy

duty plywood that only has to be screwed

together, she says.

Garages and lofts are house vendors’

friends. The garage is one of the few

places in the house that buyers won’t

be put off by a little extra stuff, but the

more that can be hidden away in stacked

crates the better. Consider using flat pack

cupboards that can be taken with you.

“The most effective way of using these is

to find a wall where the whole area can be

covered floor to ceiling,”

“Simple carpentry like this is dIY level

if you’re handy, or get a handyman in for

a few hours, but make sure it is excluded

from the list of chattels on the sale


Loft spaces are often wasted space

in Kiwi homes. A relatively cheap way to

open up the space is to install a loft ladder.

You will be amazed at what people use

the additional storage space for, once

they’ve installed it.

Cheap clever storage ideas aren’t just

limited to the interior of the house, garage

and loft. The Warehouse, Mitre 10 & other

hardware stores sell garden storage to

hide away things usually left outside.

Foldable garden storage boxes that cost

from around $99 can be used to store

garden tools, outdoor cushions and pool

paraphernalia. The next step up is a cheap

garden shed for around $200 upwards

from Mitre 10, Bunnings Warehouse and

other stores.

Finally, if you’re looking for more

inspiration Google “storage ideas”, search

the same on Pinterest, or check out books

on the subject from your local library. You’ll

be amazed at how many everyday items

can be repurposed for storage at the same

time as adding design excellence to your



557 Weedons Ross Road, West Melton

result they desired. We have buyers

these areas.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Local man plays significant part

in Rolleston’s development

Every town has community minded people involved in

clubs, sport, politics and business. One man known for his

involvement in Rolleston is Russell Lilley.

In 1965, Russell started his building

apprenticeship in Rolleston which was

mainly farmland. He was fifteen years

old with his job to grub gorse and

broom so houses could be built.

Three years later, Russell bought

a section in Moore Street. It cost

him just $960 and to pay the rates,

he planted potatoes on the land

and sold them by sitting on the side

of the highway. It was the spark of

entrepreneurship and a lifetime of

working long hours.

At twenty three, Russell married

and built a house opposite Rolleston

School in Tennyson Street. He still

lives there today. There were few

shops and the land around was mostly

scrubby paddocks – a wonderful

playground for his children who

caught tadpoles in a pond where New

World now stands.

Russell’s wife was the school

caretaker for thirteen years and he

helped her clean classrooms, while

also lighting and cleaning the boiler,

and mowing the lawns.

“The area was slowly growing but

the Ellesmere Council didn’t believe

that Rolleston would work,” explains

Russell who says this changed when

the Council shifted to Rolleston,

with the town’s infrastructure now a

priority and the Council open to ideas

and pro-active on improving and

progressing the town.

Russell and nine other people

started developing Rolleston,

constructing waterworks and sewers

which they held responsibility for

until recent years when the Council

took this over.

As the town grew, shops came.

Russell and three other investors, built

Rolleston Square west, then the east

wing, with further expansion due.

The Rugby League grounds behind

the school had been the rugby field

with an old classroom as clubhouse.

Originally juniors played for the


Rolleston Club,

travelling to

Springston for

games. In 2001,

Russell and ex

All Black, Tiny

Hill brought the

old Rolleston

Rugby Club back

to life, with club

members preparing the playing area

by first getting down on their hands

and knees to pick up stones.

The first rugby clubhouse was

arsoned so with the help of donated

materials and free labour a new

clubhouse was built. The club is now

the largest in Ellesmere having a

senior team, divisions one and two

sides and many young players.

Two years ago, Russell built twelve

motels near the Chaucer Street

shops adding to the Rolly Inn, where

bands once played every weekend

to crowds in the hundreds. Russell

purchased the business rundown and

his daughter worked to bring it up to

standard with his son now manager

there and also Fire Chief at Rolleston’s

Volunteer Fire Brigade.

Russell started high school at twelve

years old and left when fifteen. He

firmly believed that he should do

something with his life - for himself

and for others. He has certainly

contributed to Rolleston as it is today.

“It is all about your dream in life.

There are so many opportunities out

here,” says Russell.

Building a

new home

So you’ve decide to build a new home.

Before you dive in boots and all,

there are a number of steps that need

to be followed. Cover all the bases

when building a home.

Step 1: Finance

Firstly, it is important to organise your

finances in advance in order to work out

what you can realistically afford. There

is little point getting excited about an

impending building project if you have

no idea how far your finances will stretch.

Draw up a realistic budget of your present

household expenses to see whether building

a new home is in fact feasible. Once you have

an idea of how much money you are able to

outlay without causing yourself excessive

hardship, it is time to start investigating

the cost involved when constructing your

new home.

Step 2: Purchasing a section

Buying the right section is an essential

part of the building process and as such,

there are a number of important things that

need to be considered.

Is the section close to all necessary

amenities, such as schools, shops, hospitals

and public transport? Does it have a view,

plenty of sun, privacy and good drainage, or

is it prone to flooding, windy and miles away

from civilisation? Visit at different times of

the day, in different weather conditions and

if time is on your side, different times of

the year to see how much sun it gets in the

winter when the sun is at its lowest.

Also, take into consideration its potential

as a building site – is access difficult? This

could have an impact on building costs.

Find out from your local council what

services, such as water, sewage, power,

phone and gas, are connected to the site.

Check whether there is good television

and mobile phone reception, or whether

your new address means you have to scale

the clothesline and hold your phone in an

obscure position just to send a text message.

The neighbourhood can also be a

contentious issue when purchasing a section.

What are the neighbours like, and are their

properties well-kept? Are there overhanging

trees that could cause a nuisance? Could

there be a noise problem from them or their

pets? Get a feel of the area, listening for

traffic, animals or noisy machinery that is in

use around the clock.

If there is vacant land adjacent to your

proposed site, find out whether the council

has any plans for it and what can and can’t

be built there.

Before buying the section, you also need

to find out what is in your council’s district

plan, and what resource consents you

might need. You also need to request a LIM

report, which is held by your local council

and outlines all information pertaining to

your section regarding rates, land features,

environmental issues, restrictions on land

or building use, resource consents issued,

potential contaminations, details about

septic tanks, hazardous substances and

storm water or sewage drains.

The report may also contain information

about sacred areas and may also provide

aerial photographs. This information may

help you make the all-important decision to

either buy the section or leave it alone. It will

also give you an indication as to whether the

purchase price is fair.

Step 3: Choose and brief the designer

Before deciding on a designer for your

building project, it is necessary to conduct

some research in order to find out which

type will suit you best.

Speak to a few before making your

choice and liaise with them periodically

once work on the design of your home has

commenced. Get involved by gathering

ideas for materials, fixtures, fittings and

discuss them with your designer.

Step 4: Finding a builder

Once the plans are drawn, the materials

have been chosen and your finance is

arranged, the next step in the building

process is likely to be finding a builder.

Hiring the right builder is crucial to the

whole building experience. People who have

been involved in building a house typically

report that the key factor in making it a

happy experience is finding a good builder

and subcontractors. The most common

things that soured their building experience

were poor workmanship, contractors not

turning up, no communication, complaints

overlooked, problems left unresolved,

messages ignored and delays. In contrast,

people who had positive experiences

reported that the builders they had hired

were highly skilled, honest, knowledgeable,

patient and sympathetic to their goals

and budget.
