A kilt is not usually part of Olympic shot putter

Jacko Gill’s competition attire but that didn’t

seem to bother him as he tried his hand in eight

events at the Hororata Highland Games on

Saturday. Gill’s throw of 28m in the 22lb hammer

event was one of several new event records set

on the day. A record crowd of 10,000 people

turned out at Hororata Domain for this year’s

Rural business rules in spotlight

• By Tom Doudney

THE RULES around what

business activities can take place

in Selwyn’s rural areas will come

under scrutiny as part of the

District Plan review.

Business activities in the rural

areas have been the cause of a

growing number of disputes

between residents and businesses

since the February 2011 earthquake

caused an increase in the

number of people and businesses

moving to the district.

The District Plan is supposed

to be reviewed every 10 years.

The current version was

originally notified in two

volumes (Rural Volume in 2000

and the Township Volume in

2001), decisions on submissions

were released in 2004 and it was

made fully operative in May this

year.

Mayor Sam Broughton said it

had been a long time since the

current District Plan was developed

and it was starting to feel a

bit out of date.

“Those ideas are now 10 years

old and we have moved as a district

quite a long way from that,”

Mr Broughton said.

He said the review was a

chance to re-evaluate what

Selwyn wanted to be as a community.

District council planning

manager Jess Burgess said a

project team was currently undertaking

an assessment of the

District Plan.

“This will look at the positive

and negative effects of businesses

establishing in rural areas and

whether any changes are required

to address issues that are

raised with such activities,” Mr

Burgess said.

“Where possible greater clarity

and less grey areas for dispute is

sought in developing the second

generation plan.”

Asked whether changes were

likely to make it harder or easier

for businesses to set up in rural

areas, Mr Burgess said that was

unknown but there would be

public engagement and debate

over that issue.

Mr Broughton said it was

hoped the public would let the

district council know what their

expectations were.

“We are keen to hear from

individuals or maybe companies

or groups that have got views on

the things that should be relaxed

or things that should be tightened

up,” he said.

“I think one of the things that

has come through is a view that

we want to protect green space

and the views that are available

across our district, across paddocks

to the mountains – that’s

something that people have been

talking to me about.”

He said it was hoped the

electronic version of the new

District Plan would have features

that made it easy to search so it

would be simple for people to

see what the rules allowed for a

given property and neighbouring

properties.

The District Plan review is

expected to take the next three

years.

“We like to

dream big.”

Big things are happening

for Faringdon in 2017.

Our new primary school, Lemonwood Grove opens,

as does Faringdon’s new retail centre, a new Show

Home Village, and you can afford to dream big!

HATS OFF to the organisers of the

Hororata Highland Games – what

a fantastic event it was.

More than 10,000 people went

through the gates on Saturday.

Star Media, which publishes

Selwyn Times, was the games’ media

partner and what a great local

event to get behind.

We’re also getting behind another

fantastic event coming to the

district – Selwyn Sounds On The

Domain in early March.

It’ll be day of great music at Lincoln

Domain (adjacent to the Event

Centre) with headline bands like

Mi-Sex and Dragon.

But the promoters are also showcasing

local acts like Southfield.

The duo comprises former New

Zealand cricketer Katrina Keenan

and aircraft technician Dave

McKenzie. They’re pretty good and

will debut their first original song

at the festival. See page 7.

Call for patience

during motorway construction

• By Tom Doudney

WORK HAS begun on a $195

million motorway project tipped

to drastically improve congestion

problems for motorists

commuting between Selwyn and

Christchurch.

A sod turning ceremony

attended by Prime Minister

John Key was held on Friday as

work started on stage 2 of the

Christchurch Southern Motorway.

The project will see the current

four-lane motorway extended

by 13km through to Main South

Rd, just north of Rolleston.

Transport minister Simon

Bridges said the motorway

would halve travel time between

Rolleston and Christchurch at

peak times from 30min to about

15min.

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall,

who lives in Prebbleton, said

the completion of the motorway

would be a tremendous help in

tackling congestion and couldn’t

come soon enough.

“We’ve got 16,000 cars a day

coming through Prebbleton

township, many of them travelling

from well outside the area,”

Cr Lyall said.

“Giving them the new motorway

to access off Shands Rd with

traffic lights is going to make

a huge difference to our local

community here and the travelling

times and frustration felt

by motorists from Rolleston to

Leeston really.”

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the motorway would also help

keep population and economic

growth in Selwyn strong.

“It will make Selwyn and even

more desirable place to live and

could mean new residents moving

into a home near you,” Mr

Broughton said.

Sergeant Alex Pickover said

it was hoped the motorway’s

completion would help reduce

the risk of accidents for those

travelling between Christchurch

and Selwyn.

“In the meantime there is going

to be a lot of congestion and

traffic build up so people just

need to be patient in those rush

hour times,” he said.

Mr Bridges said the construction

of this extension and the

Christchurch Northern Corridor

project, on which work also began

on Friday, would see nearly

half a billion dollars injected into

Canterbury, providing hundreds

of jobs directly and indirectly.

“They will change the way

people and freight move around

Christchurch city, from the Lyttelton

Port of Christchurch, the

inland port links at Rolleston

and to the Christchurch International

Airport,” Mr Bridges said.

“Well-designed and constructed

motorways free up suburban

streets for residents and offer opportunities

for local businesses.”

HORORATA HIGHLAND GAMES

Record crowd

contributes to success

A RECORD crowd of 10,000

people took in the bonnie sights

and sounds, which included

plenty of tartan and bagpipes,

at the sixth annual Hororata

Highland Games on Saturday.

Jacko Gill wasn’t the only one

to set a record in the field, with

his 28m throw in the hammer

toss. Luke Reynolds set a new

field record in the 16lb sheaf with

a toss of 30ft and equalled the

56lb weight over bar record with

14ft.

For the first time a woman,

Fiona Bond of Christchurch, won

the pie-eating competition with a

time of 46.41sec.

The Gough CAT Oceania

Heavyweight Championship was

won by Australian athlete Luke

Reynolds, with Jacko Gill coming

second in his first highland

games competition.

Gill said the size of the event

had blown him away and he

couldn’t wait to compete at future

events.

“I have never competed in an

athletic event with such a huge

crowd [apart from] an event like

the Olympics or Commonwealth

Games,” he said.

The event attracted nearly 100

highland dancers – one of the

biggest competitions in New

Zealand, 11 pipe bands, 54 solo

pipers and drummers, 12 tug o’

war teams, four highland spin

teams, while 30 people took

aim at the small bore shooting

championship and 12 amateur

men and women heavy athletes

tossed, threw and strained for the

Hororata Highland Games heavy

championship.

Games chieftain Kyle Warren

wowed the crowd with a contemporary

performance on his

bagpipes of We Will Rock You to

rev the competitors up before the

Hororata Stones competition.

Mr Warren said it was one of

the best highland games he had

been to in the world.

Event manager Cindy Driscoll

said the games’ success would not

have been possible without the

Clan Hororata volunteers.

“We had a record number of

people volunteering at the event

this year and they should all be

extremely proud,” Mrs Driscoll

said.

The Selwyn Times may have

also got in on the record setting

action with an event it staged

at the games where people were

invited to write what they loved

about Canterbury on a post-it

note and stick it to a car. It is believed

the New Zealand record for

the most number of post-it notes

with an individual message on a

car may have been set, although

the final count is yet to be made.

UP AND OVER: Brian Reeves

competes in the amateur sheaf toss.

STRAINING: Hororata team The Snake Pit won the tug o’

war competition.

Duo ready for Selwyn Sounds

• By Tom Doudney

BESIDES BOTH living in

Lincoln, there is one important

thing that former World Cup

winning women’s cricketer

Katrina Keenan and aircraft

technician Dave McKenzie have

in common – music.

The duo, who perform cover

songs together under the name

of Southfield, will debut their

first original song when they

play as one of the opening acts at

Lincoln’s Selwyn Sounds concert

in March.

The show features big name

New Zealand acts such as Mi-Sex,

Dragon and The Jordan Luck

Band.

The pair first met at a social

gathering at a friends place and

when McKenzie got his guitar out

to play a few tunes, Keenan took

notice.

“I thought ‘oh, he’s quite accomplished,

I wonder if he would

be interested in doing something

as a duo’.”

As it turned out, he was so they

chose a band name based on the

street that McKenzie lives on –

Southfield Drive – and have now

been playing together for about a

year.

While Keenan (nee Withers) is

best known for her six years as a

player and further year as coach

of national women’s cricket side

the White Ferns, this isn’t her first

foray into music.

A country pop song she wrote

and recorded about 15 years ago,

called If Ever I’ve Been Loved, got

some air play on Christchurch

radio and earned her a spot as a

solo artist opening for American

country and pop artists Charlie

Pride and Gene Pitney when they

played at the Christchurch Town

Hall.

Keenan and McKenzie plan to

upload their new song to their

Facebook page on the day of

the concert but have no plans to

release an album.

“We are both individually busy

with our other career paths,” she

said.

“This is more of a passion and a

hobby.”

Selwyn Sounds will be held

on March 4, from 11.30am-

8.30pm. Tickets can be

purchased via Ticketek and

buyers will be able to prepurchase

a return bus ride

between pick up points in

Christchurch or Rolleston and

Lincoln Domain.

RIGHT NOTES: Dave McKenzie and Katrina Keenan’s

band name Southfield was inspired by the Lincoln

street on which McKenzie lives. They will debut their

first original song as a duo at next year’s Selwyn

Sounds concert.

PRE-SCHOOL GRANT

The Darfield Preschool and

Nursery has been granted $1000 by

the Malvern Community Board to

go towards a water exploration area

in its garden for children under

two. The cost of the project is

$1600. The pre-school and nursery,

a charitable trust, has already

fundraised the additional $600

through various activities. The

community board also approved

a grant of $300 to the Courtenay

A&P Show for hiring a marquee.

CORRECTION

In last week’s edition of the Selwyn

Times we incorrectly stated that the

Coleridge Habitat Enhancement

Trust was one of three groups

nominated for the Canterbury

Aoraki Conservation Board’s

biodiversity award. In fact the trust

was not nominated and the Avon-

Otakaro Forest Park, which we

didn’t name, was nominated.

COMMUNITY GARDEN

OPENS

A barbecue to celebrate the

opening of the new Kirwee

Community Garden will be held

on Friday at 5pm. The garden is

located at St George’s Church on

Courtenay Rd. The opening had

been scheduled to take place on

October 14 but was rescheduled

due to bad weather.

Selwyn River condition defended

SELWYN TIMES

Gaylene Barnes responds

to today’s Soap Box

column by James Guild

High Peak Station farmer

James Guild writes in

response to comments

made in a recent Selwyn

Times article which

described the top of the

Selwyn/Waikiriri River as

“a mess” and discusses

what those living in the

area have done to protect

the environment

I READ an article in the October

25 issue of the Selwyn Times

about Kathleen Gallagher and

Gaylene Barnes’ proposal to film

a hikoi walking the course of the

Selwyn/Waikirikiri River.

I also noted with concern, the

quote attributed to Ms Barnes

that she had been to the “top of

the Selwyn” and it “was a mess.”

The property our family farms

encompasses the headwaters

of the Selwyn River. The south

branch traverses the length of the

station for about 8km and the

north branch forms our northern

boundary. The confluence of

the two branches is at the lowest

point of the property before the

river travels through the Selwyn

Gorge and emerges at Whitecliffs,

some 12km downstream.

I am rather bemused by the

comments in the article. None of

us living here has any recollection

of Ms Barnes visiting and

picnicking “two or three years

ago” and we strongly dispute the

claim the “top of the Selwyn is a

mess.”

On the contrary, we are proud

of the efforts we have made to

ensure that the water in the

Selwyn leaves High Peak Station

in the best possible condition.

Two kilometres of the south

branch riverbed upstream of

the confluence is protected

under a Queen Elizabeth II

National Trust covenant which

also protects in perpetuity a 90ha

of native biodiversity including

ancient matagouri, red tussock

and dry shrub-land.

Two other National Trust

covenants on High Peak Station

protect a 4ha flax wetland and a

50ha shrubland face incorporating

natural springs at the base,

which form a significant tributary

of the upper Selwyn.

We have also completed

several kilometres of riparian

fencing and native planting of

different tributaries to the south

WATER QUALITY SUPPORTED: The Selwyn River at Whitecliffs

– 12km downstream from High Peak Station.

branch and will continue to do

more as finances permit.

Our voluntary efforts towards

water protection, weed and

pest control and those of our

neighbouring stations, who

also have tributaries feeding

the Selwyn and have National

Trust covenants protecting

wetlands, have been supported

and applauded by Environment

Canterbury.

Either Ms Barnes has a view

as to what constitutes “a mess”

which is completely at odds with

the facts, or else she is geographically

challenged and her picnic

was nowhere near the “top of the

Selwyn” – as she describes it.

Frankly, those of us living and

farming in the upper reaches

of the Selwyn/Waikirikiri are

becoming heartily sick of the

ill-informed attacks on our environmental

integrity and the lack

of recognition of our extensive

(and expensive) contributions to

maintaining water quality and

biodiversity.

Lumping all landowners in the

Selwyn catchment into a convenient

one-size-fits-all category

as irresponsible environment

vandals, is both hurtful and

counter-productive to improving

the state of the river.

Mr Guild, we are very

heartened to hear about the care

you are taking for the Selwyn/

Waikirikiri River on your family

farm at High Peak.

It sounds like wonderful

work has been undertaken. We

are very much interested in

documenting examples of good

environmental stewardship and

may take you up on your offer

for the next project.

We have also been made

aware of other excellent projects

along the Selwyn/Waikirikiri

River.

The Walk for Water initiative

during September 2016, and

the short documentary thereof

were raising awareness about the

health of the Selwyn/Waikirikiri

River along the whole length.

The journey began in Whitecliffs/Glentunnel

– and my

observations of the river reflect

the sorry state of it at Whitecliffs

and at the much-loved public

picnic park at Glentunnel. Please

see the video: https://vimeo.

com/gaylenebarnes/hikoi-forthe-waikirikiri

Perhaps there is something

going on during the 12km run

after it leaves your place to

increase nutrient levels in the

river to such a state that didymo

and other algae have taken

hold?

SELWYN TIMES Tuesday November 8 2016 11

LONG HAUL: Participants in September’s Walk For Water

traversed the length of the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River to raise

awareness of water quality issues.

Unfortunately, it is unlikely

that children will be picnicking

and swimming there this year

at the public grounds. This is a

shame considering the work you

are doing at your end.

One of the requests of locals we

met at the top end (Whitecliffs)

was for much better monitoring

along the whole length of the

river, and this is something that

would certainly help to eliminate

the one-size-fits-all reproach of

all landowners – ie those who are

responsible towards the river and

its edges and those who are encroaching

on the river margins.

According to a recent Environment

Canterbury report – 339ha

of the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River

margins on the plains have been

developed for agriculture since

1990. Perhaps this is something

needing to be taken up with

ECan and the Selwyn Waihora

Zone Committee?

Footpath parking frustrates reader

Robert White, Tai Tapu

The vehicle shown in the

above photo was parked on the

footpath opposite the Tai Tapu

Hotel.

The car park adjacent to the

hotel is empty.

If you are taking your children

on their bike or in a pushchair to

the domain to play on the

swings etc, walking your dog,

or just generally enjoying a walk

to the domain, you will need to

walk on the road around this

bend into the oncoming traffic.

It is not uncommon to see

vehicles parked on the footpath

when there is clearly plenty of

space available in the hotel’s

adjacent car park.

The footpath has been poorly

designed and, without a kerb,

it is difficult to see the situation

ever being any different.

Our People

Jason Marsden

Making sure The Hub Hornby offers

The Hub Hornby centre manager Jason Marsden, 45, has

seen massive changes to the shopping complex during

his 15 years in the role. Georgia O’Connor-Harding spoke

to him about the changing face of the hub, including its

recent $75 million refurbishment

Tell me about how The Hub

Hornby has changed over the

15 years you have been there?

I suppose the key things are

when I first arrived there was no

Pak ‘n Save. It was just an empty

car park with a strip of shops

on the western side. There was a

little stand-alone concrete block

row of shops right along that

border and then the car park

and mall, so immediately into

the mall on that side we had the

New World supermarket. Out

the front facing Main South Rd,

we had a separate building that

housed BNZ, and I think there

was a video store and cafe part

of that little block of building as

well.

Would The Hub Hornby be

interested in getting a movie

theatre back?

It is one thing a lot of people

ask about, and I think with the

movie industry at the moment,

quite a number of big factors

come into it. People themselves

have changed how they consume

entertainment. There are no

plans for a movie theatre to be

part of what we are doing here

at the moment, but it is not to

say one won’t be built in the

future in Hornby. People have a

strong emotional connection to

having a movie theatre in their

community, but unfortunately

there is not enough patronage

to back it up to make it a

commercial success.

What is it like running The

Hub Hornby?

It is a really interesting job I

suppose. You are dealing with a

huge chunk of the community.

The mall is not just about a

bunch of shops. The marketing

side I find really interesting. I

like trying new things such as

the Halloween event we just had.

Seeing the community’s response

to the redevelopment, there

is a lot of pride amongst the

community.

What does a normal day for

you involve?

In a mall situation, it is so

dynamic and you are dealing

with all the unusual things that

are thrown at you and you have

to slot your normal work around

that. You could be involved in

anything from a dog that has

been locked in a car to someone

who has had a medical event, so

there are a lot of things that need

immediate responses.

Are there any unusual events

that stand out to you?

We have had lots of different

things happen here. There are

certainly some things we have

created that we are extremely

proud of. Not only the growth of

the mall itself, but things like the

Maori artwork on the exterior

of the building. The panels all

relate to Canterbury from Aoraki

right up to Lake Ellesmere/Te

Waihora – each panel has its

own story and background. The

other really neat thing is we are

locally-owned and operated. We

you drive through. It was quite

a world-class shopping experience

Did you always have a business

brain on you?

It is really interesting. A lot of

people come into retail property

management for a lot of different

reasons. For my formal training,

I went and did a Bachelor of

Science, majoring in physics.

That was a natural curiosity

about things. Then I worked for

the The Press for 10 and a half

years. I started off there as a

motorbike courier as my first job

and then I went through to head

of their classified sales team. I

got to know many of the mall

management people, as well as

HG Livingstone Ltd, which is

now real estate company Colliers

International, which I work for.

Then I had a year and a bit with

an advertising agency, Waves

Advertising. The marketing side

has always been a passion for me

and then this role came up.

Were you ever interested in

journalism?

I would always end up writing

a little article with some photos.

For a small newspaper everyone

gets roped in. I am into fourwheel-driving

so I have done

a little bit of writing for New

Zealand 4WD Magazine.

You have a four-wheel-drive

club?

Yes, I am a member of the

OUT AND ABOUT: In his spare time, Jason Marsden enjoys putting four-wheel-drives through

their paces.

Canterbury Recreational 4WD

Club, which is probably the

biggest in Canterbury – we

have about 100 members. It

is probably the only club that

has a tyre size limit so that is

really important when it comes

to preserving tracks and not

creating deep ruts and that. We

have a big environmental focus.

Is there one favourite place

you like to go?

In New Zealand, my absolute

favourite place would have to

be Fiordland. It is such a special

place. The proper glaciers,

dramatic mountains, waterfalls,

ocean and wildlife is pretty

hard to beat I think. Right from

the time you drive through the

Homer Tunnel; that is really like

going through the wardrobe in

The Chronicles of Narnia: The

Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

so you emerge in a completely

different world.

What were you like at school?

I was strong in the sciences,

wood work, technical drawing.

Probably a bit weaker in

chemistry and math. I love

physics and classical studies. I do

enjoy the history side of things,

which is another passion of mine

– studying Viking culture and

genealogy. I am involved in a

history group called the Society

for Creative Anachronism Inc.

That is an American group that

has been in this country for

many years.

Do you have any other

hidden talents we don’t know

about?

I have a diploma in musical

theory, but that is ancient history

now. Unfortunately, as much

as I studied music, I have got

very little talent. I learnt piano

for seven years. I have dabbled

with a few string instruments,

older-type instruments, Middle

Eastern drumming, but again,

there is lots of enthusiasm but

little talent.

Darfield marks Japanese link

A CHERRY tree has been planted

outside Darfield High School’s

international office to mark

10 years of welcoming visiting

students from Kagoshima Junshin

Girls’ High School in Japan.

Darfield hosts a teacher and students

from Kagoshima Junshin for

about 10 days each October.

Their programme includes

spending time in classes with Darfield

students, as well as going on

outings to places such as Akaroa,

Christchurch and Rubicon Valley

Farm.

The visitors stay with local host

families during the trip and give

informative cultural performances

to Darfield students. This year’s

performances covered ninjas, pop

fashion, Japanese primary schools

and animated characters.

Darfield’s international director

Nicola Hely said the 10th annual

visit was an important milestone.

“We look forward to the relationship

continuing to grow and

develop in the coming years, and

thank all of our host families and

Equestrian second in Feilding

SPORTS

BURNHAM equestrian Sophie

Griffith came within a whisker

of winning the internationally

judged CDI-Y competition held

recently as part of the Central

Districts Dressage Festival in

Feilding.

Griffith, 20, and her horse

Frangelico F came second in each

of the competition’s two classes.

Her score of 66.658 per cent in

the individual test was just 0.210

per cent below the winning score

of 66.868 per cent, set by this

year’s Young Dressage Rider of

the Year winner Lucarne Dolley,

of Kumeu.

She again finished second to

Dolley in the musical freestyle

class, recording a score of 67.300

per cent. Griffith and Frangelico

F performed to the music from

THE HALSWELL cricket

team’s semi-final hopes are

looking grim after losing

twice in two days over the

weekend.

Low scores batting first were

the problem in both games.

The first loss came on

Saturday, when Halswell batted

first in an away game against

New Brighton at Rawhiti

Domain.

Careless shots and good

the movie Finding Nemo.

Griffith said she was really

pleased with her results.

“We went up there and just

wanted to be top three,” she said.

“To get so close to [Dolley] and

to have some really good scores

from the international judges, it

was a real boost in confidence.”

Griffith, who has just finished

her second year of an elite

equestrian scholarship at Lincoln

University, is coached by Brugs

Nicholls, also of Burnham.

Griffith and Frangelico F will

compete in the Canterbury

Dressage Championships on

December 3 at McLeans Island

and will head back to Feilding

early next year for the

New Zealand Dressage

Championships in February.

bowling meant Halswell lost

wickets regularly and were

dismissed for a disappointing

83 runs.

Halswell showed more fight

in the field with Geoff Barclay

taking three early wickets.

However, New Brighton held

their composure towards the

end with their lower order

getting them past the total with

seven wickets down.

On Sunday, Halswell

again batted first in another

away game; this time

against Southern Districts at

Beckenham Park.

The team found themselves

in a similar position to the day

before and were bowled out

for 75. None of the Halswell

batsmen could get in on the

bowler-friendly track.

Southern Districts showed

more application when they

had their turn to bat and

grafted away at the small total,

passing the target for the loss of

four wickets.

Although Halswell bowled

tight they could not get

enough early wickets. Leighton

Johnston bowled nine overs

and took 2-10 while Mike

Chatterton had figures of 2-18

from his nine overs.

Halswell will host top of

the table Heathcote in this

Saturday’s must-win game.

GOOD RIDING:

Sophie Griffith

on Frangelico F

put in a strong

performance to

take second in two

classes in Feilding.

Lincoln take wins to four in a row

Lincoln’s continued its winning

streak in the Canterbury

Country Premier one-day

competition with a six-wicket

victory over Greendale on

Saturday.

Bowling first at Greendale

Domain, Hugh Paterson and

Reuben Craw were instrumental

for Lincoln, taking nine wickets

between them as they rolled

Greendale for 64 runs.

Paterson finished with four

wickets from his nine overs, going

for 12 runs.

Craw’s figures were equally as

impressive with five wickets for

19 runs from eight overs.

Nick Jenkins was the only

Greendale batsman to finish in

double figures. The opener top

scored with 27 as he watched his

partners at the other end fall one

after another.

Greendale struck early with the

ball, as Craig Watson removed

Lincoln opener Nico Lerm for

two runs.

That is the only sniff Greendale

would have, though, as Jake Schwass

(27) and Matt Benton (19)

steadied the ship for Lincoln.

Lincoln completed the run

chase in the 16th over, eventually

winning by six wickets.

They have now won four

games in a row, with the only defeat

of the season coming in the

opening round against Oxford

on October 1.

•Round six results

Greendale 64/10 (33 overs)

lost to Lincoln 65/4 (15.3

overs).

Oxford 72/10 (34.1 overs)

lost to South Malvern 73/3

(15.2 overs).

Weedons 99/10 (28.2

overs) lost to Sefton 229/8

(45 overs).

Southbrook 173/5 (45

overs) defeated Leeston-

Southbridge 166/10 (42

overs).

MID DELIVERY: Greendale’s Haigh Jebson bowled to Lincoln’s

Matt Benton.

SOLID IN DEFENCE: Lincoln batsman Jake

Schwass dealt with a well-aimed full ball.

COMMITTED: Haigh Jebson took a catch for

Greendale.

WINNING RUNS: Jamie Chapman and Jeremy Benton

sprinted between ends to complete a six-wicket victory for

Lincoln.

DISRUPTION TO WATER RACE

SERVICE – ROLLESTON

Council contractors will soon start

piping the Tennyson Street water

race between Kidman Street to

This is part of a series of roading

upgrades planned as part of the

Rolleston Town Centre Master

Plan starting with providing a

roundabout at the intersection

of Tennyson Street, Byron Street

and Kidman Street. Piping of

the water race will enable a

new footpath to be installed

and parking improvements to

occur along Rolleston Schools’

frontage, which will then

progressively extend south along

Tennyson Street over time.

Schick Construction will be

undertaking water race works

between 21 November and

22 December 2016. Work will

recommence in late January until

the end of February 2017. Water

race users will experience a

reduced water race supply during

this time as pumps will be used

to divert water around the work

site. Questions relating to this

disruption should be directed to

the Council on 347 2800.

BIG OPENING: Prime Minister John Key (left) and Sir Selwyn Cushing at the opening of Skellerup’s new Wigram base.

Rubber factory platform for further growth

• By Sam Pickering

WELL-KNOWN rubber

company Skellerup opened

its new factory in Wigram last

week.

The $60 million facility will

cover 19,000 sq m in Stark Drive

and employ about 200 people.

Prime Minister John Key

opened the factory.

Skellerup has been synonymous

in the rubber industry

since it opened its factory in

Woolston in 1910, and was a big

employer in the eastern suburbs

for decades.

The products the factory

makes range from industrial

rubber products, dairy rubberware,

waterproof footwear,

closed-cell foam products, mining

products, vacuum pumps

and construction products.

For many years it also made

footwear at its Woolston plant.

Company chairman Sir

Selwyn Cushing said Skellerup’s

Woolston site had been the

company’s heart and soul for

more than three-quarters of a

century, and he expected the

Wigram development would

serve the company and its

customers for at least as many

years to come.

“We had a very hard look at

our options after the quake –

staying in Christchurch was

clearly the best choice for the

business,” he said.

Skellerup chief executive

David Mair said he is confident

the factory will be a platform for

future growth.

“People said we should move

to China, that didn’t actually

stack up. So the great thing

about this is there is a really

good future here in Christchurch.

The facility was acquired by

Skellerup in May 2013 from Wigram

Business Park developers

and Ngai Tahu property.

Sir Selwyn paid tribute to

Project Champion Sir Ron Carter,

the Skellerup team and the

project contractors responsible

for the Wigram development.

Open Wednesday-Sunday 9am-5pm

and open all other times for private

dining or functions.

Old favourites and interesting

distinctive dishes for the food

connoisseur have been added to

a new menu created by new head

chef, Simon Gilby at The Bridge

Restaurant & Bar.

Simon has considerable

experience as a chef in the United

Kingdom where he held sous chef

positions and in New Zealand

where he previously worked for

recognised restaurants in

Christchurch, Hanmer

and on the West Coast.

“I’m really excited by the

prospect of the direction

The Bridge Restaurant &

Bar is taking,” says Simon.

In creating their

amazing new menu,

Simon has gone back to

the basics ensuring that

fresh produce and seasonal

vegetables are part of the

food served at The Bridge.

Dishes include slow roasted

pork belly, Asian style

prawns on a crispy noodle

salad, sticky barbecue ribs,

Buffalo wings and shared

platters of meats, pickles

and cheeses.

“I like the idea of people

sharing a platter of food while enjoying a

drink with friends or family,” adds Simon.

For the sweet tooth, the dessert line-up

on the menu includes white chocolate and

blueberry Brulee and sticky date pudding

with butterscotch sauce, which Simon says

is always popular. Their junior chef, whose

background is in dessert preparation, has

also contributed to the sweets menu with

some great desserts that include baked

elderflower cheesecake and chocolate

terrine.

“When designing a new menu, I draw

on the enthusiasm and expertise of

everyone in the team,” advises Simon.

The Bridge Restaurant & Bar is

also an ideal place for a weekend

brunch with their exciting new menu

available from 10am every Saturday

and Sunday. Dishes include a truly

big breakfast, French toast and eggs

benedict which is also available gluten

free.

Other changes at The Bridge

Restaurant & Bar include a brand new

children’s play area with swings, and a

jungle gym, slide and blackboard coming

soon,

allowing mums and dads

the chance to relax while

their children play.

For those planning a

Christmas function, The

Bridge Restaurant & Bar is

ideal. They have a separate

function room and will

provide a menu to suit

any budget with delicious

festive season foods like

hot ham off the bone and

Christmas pudding served

with warm brandy custard

and vanilla ice cream.

Gardening

Have a holiday with

livingstone daisies

• By Tod Palenski

IF YOU’RE after some no-fuss

colour for your garden this

summer, look no further than

livingstone daisies.

This brightly-coloured plant

is the perfect flower to grow

over the warmer months –

particularly if you’re going away

at all. No need to set sprinklers

to timer for livingstone daisies.

It thrives in dry, sunny and

windy conditions.

In fact, the only weather element

you really need to worry

about when growing livingstone

daisies is whether there’s any

chance of frost.

Once you’re past the chance

of frost, these pretty daisies will

flower almost all year.

They are also fantastic for

growing in borders and creating

mass displays of colour due to

the succulent, spreading nature

of the plant.

Find a spot in your garden

that gets full sun and plant each

seedling about 30cm apart from

the next.

Once established the flowers

will open to the sun and the

plant will grow to around 15-

20cm high.

Water them when you can

but, as I said, they should be

fine left to their own devices if

you head away during summer.

Speaking of holidays, if you have

daisies there too. This way

you enjoy the brilliant colour of

The art of growing

a good artichoke

• By Tod Palenski

IF YOU ask me, globe artichokes

can be a little intimidating.

Visually, they’re statuesque and

striking. And, while they have a

reputation as a culinary delicacy,

to the novice it can be hard to tell

how they should be eaten at all.

In spite of all of this, artichokes

are actually a very easy

plant to grow. Possibly that’s to

make up for the fact they do

require a bit of work to cook …

and eat.

So, if you’ve ever wondered

about growing artichokes I can

tell you, wonder no more – just

get planting.

Because artichokes (not to

be confused with jerusalem

artichoke, which are nothing

at all like globe artichokes) are

not particular about where they

grow, you can choose anywhere

in the vegetable garden to plant.

Alternatively, why not use that

intimidating visual appearance

to your advantage and plant

them with your flowers. I suggest

growing them in the background

as they can reach around 2m tall.

When you’ve found the right

spot, plant each artichoke about

50-100cm apart from the next.

Because we’re coming into

summer it pays to keep an eye on

how dry they get and try to keep

them watered regularly. It’s also

a good idea to apply a mulch to

help keep the soil consistently

moist.

In around 20-24 weeks you

can expect to see your first

flower buds. It’s the inner petals

and the base of the bud that is

eaten.

And it’s important, if you want

to eat them, to harvest the buds

while the petals are still tightly

wrapped. This way the hairy

choke inside (which is scraped

out to reveal the ‘heart’ of the

artichoke) won’t have developed

too much. This heart is where all

the flavour of the plant is.

The first head will be the

biggest and then smaller heads

will develop off this. Harvest the

heads by cutting just below the

bud and include a small amount

of stem. If you decide not to harvest

and eat your artichoke, the

flowers will develop into giant

thistle-like seed heads.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

What needs to be done when planting tomatoes outside?

Prepare the ground two

Answer: to three weeks before

planting. Dig in good

compost and remove any weeds. While you are

there, check that the soil is not too dry. The best

site to grow tomatoes is one that has plenty of sun,

shelter from cold winds, and access to a good water

supply (but has good drainage too). Tomatoes are

gross feeders so at planting incorporate fertilisers

such as Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser or Nitrophoska.

Place the supporting stakes in the ground before

planting. Plant the plants just above the

seedling leaves firm in and leave a

shallow dish around the plant to hold the water. Water in and

then only water the new plants as needed to encourage

the roots to go down deeper into the ground. Once rapid

growth has started they must not get stressed so need to

have regular watering and be tied to the stake to keep

the stems straight. Laterals must be removed as soon

as they are able to be handled to encourage flower

development.

Aphids will attack the plants at any stage of growth, so

watch out for them and treat at first signs of them. During

rapid growth when the plants have lots of leaves fungi

can be a problem to prevent this copper sprays will give

protection from infection.

When the fruit starts to ripen caterpillars may attack the

fruit a spray called success can be used even near harvest

time. It is recommended during the early growing stage

that a regular preventive spray programme be used as

prevention is always better than a cure.

Friday 11th November 9am – 4pm

Saturday 12th November 8am – 5pm

Sunday 13th November 9am – 4pm

Canterbury Anniversary weekend is typically the

marker for when we can plant out our tomatoes.

Generally speaking, the weather is more settled by this

stage, and the chances of frost damage have passed.

Preparation

The prep stage will set you up for a successful crop if it is done right. It is recommended

that you don’t plant new tomatoes in the same spot as last season, or

where potatoes were, as there can still be diseases in the soil that can affect the

growth of your new plant. Prepare existing beds with Organic Compost, Sheep

Pellets, and Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser. You can then add our South-Hort Tomato

Mix to the top layer to enhance the growing environment. If you are planting

in pots, use the Tomato Mix straight into the pot, no need to add fertiliser prior

to planting.

Planting in garden beds

• Once you have chosen your spot, place stakes to help give the plants support

as they grow and produce fruit. By doing this step now, you won’t damage

the roots once you have planted.

• Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball of your plant.

• Loosen the root ball and gently place the plant in the centre.

• Fill the hole with the remaining mix, and press gently around the base of the

plant.

• Tie the tomato to the stake using plant ties. If you haven’t got any of these,

old pantyhose work a treat too. Once tied, give the plant a good watering.

Planting in pots and containers

• Choose a pot or container that is at least 35L.

• Fill the pot to approximately ¾ full with South-Hort Tomato Mix. Put the

stake in ready for tying once planted.

• Loosen the root ball of the plant and place in the centre of the pot.

• Fill the rest of the pot with the remaining mix, and press gently around the

base of the plant.

• Tie the tomato to the stake using plant ties (or pantyhose). Once tied, give

the plant a good watering.

Fertilising and Watering

Tomatoes are gross feeders, so they need a lot of nutrients to maintain healthy

growth and to develop their fruit. The more nutrients available, the better the

plant will grow. Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser is designed specifically for the nutritional

requirements of these plants.

Fertilising Tomatoes in garden beds

At the prep stage: apply 200 grams per square metre and mix with the soil. Once

established, apply 100 grams per square metre every 4 weeks during the growing

season. Mix well and water after application. Keep up a consistent watering

routine. They’ll need plenty of water and nutrients to produce their fruit.

Fertilising Tomatoes in pots and containers

Apply Intelligro Top Dressing Fertiliser at a rate of 1-2 grams per litre of pot size.

Apply around the base of the plant (not touching the plant) and water in well.

Re-apply every 4 weeks during the growing season. Establish a regular watering

plan, a good long soak every few days should do it. Keep an eye on it, you don’t

want the plant to dry out!

Gardening

Heralding the new wave

Rachel Vogan says the hydrangea is one of the easiest and

most charming shrubs to grow, and it’s making a major

comeback.

SOME GOOD old-fashioned shrubs are

climbing their way back up the popularity

ladder, and hydrangeas are making

that comeback quickly and in epic

proportions.

Suddenly they don’t seem to be old

and fuddy-duddy anymore. The value of

having a reliable plant that blooms for

months on end and is easy-care appeals to

the time-poor. Being adaptable to sun and

shade simply boosts their appeal.

Planting drifts of hydrangeas is an

easy way of having a low-maintenance,

colourful garden display for months on

end. These hardy shrubs can be grown all

over the country, from the hot and humid

north right down to the cold and chilly

south. With foliage and form, these gapfilling

shrubs need more recognition.

Hydrangeas can be used in numerous

ways:

• Planted under large trees.

• Blended into shrub borders.

• Planted along the shady cold side

of the house.

• As patio and entranceway focal

points.

• In pots and containers, and even

hanging baskets if you can find one big

enough.

New dwarf hybrids are appearing

every season, many of which are bred to

cope with full sun as well as shade. This

expands the areas in which they can be

used in the garden. And it makes them

ideal for growing in planters and large

tubs.

WHERE AND HOW TO PLANT

Soil is the main thing to get right. Make

sure it is well dug over before planting,

blend on half a bucket of compost or

manure and sprinkle in some general

fertiliser. Nestle in the plant, firm the soil

around it, then add a layer of mulch around

the base to keep the soil cooler and weeds

away.

PRUNING

Prune hydrangeas each season after

flowering in June, July or August. Remove

about 50 per cent of the stem, down to a set

of fat plump green buds, which will develop

into next season’s flowers.

PROPAGATING HYDRANGEAS

At pruning time, select some straight

stems for cuttings. In a pot filled in potting

mix or loose soil, insert these sticks until at

least 50 per cent is underground. In three

to four months roots will begin to appear

through the bottom of the pot.

BLUE AND PINK HYDRANGEAS

Hydrangea flower colours can change

with different soil fertility. Many gardeners

have been mystified by this as they may

purchase a pink or red hydrangea in flower

from the garden centre and find a year

later, once it’s been in the garden a season,

that the flowers have changed colour to

a shade of mauve or blue. This is because

flower colour is affected by the soil’s pH

level.

What you need to know

When to plant

All year round.

Where to plant

Most prefer a site with some shade,

however, new varieties have been

developed which cope in sun or

shade.

When to prune

After flowering in autumn and winter.

When to propagate

In winter, by stem cuttings. Insert the

cutting into a pot, making sure at least

half the cutting is in the soil.

Plant spacing

1.5-2m between plants.

Where to buy

All good garden centres, hardware

stores and online.

VIVID: Pyrozhenka flowers an eyecatching

blue.

POPULAR: Sumiko has plenty of

street appeal with its two-toned

flowers.

The season

for fabrics

It is time to smarten the house for

summer, adding new curtains and

accessories or re-upholstering a much

loved piece of furniture.

Outside on the deck or patio, the dining

or occasional chairs may be revitalised

with some colourful squabs and cushions,

or the caravan or motorhome prepared

for planned summer trips with new

curtains, squabs and blinds.

If wondering where to go to replace the

camper’s blinds, venetians or upholstery

then look no further than Classic

Curtains & Interiors. They will take care

of the window and upholstery needs for

any type of caravan, including supplying

honeycomb or pleated blinds so your

home on wheels is given a real lift.

“Sorting these tasks now, will mean

everything is ready for summer, giving

you more time to spend with the family,

holidaying and having fun,” says Maxine,

owner of Classic Curtains & Interiors.

With Christmas less than two months

away, Maxine reminds customers that

they need to get their orders in early.

Delivery time is currently six weeks for

both curtains and upholstery.

Classic Curtains & Interiors are experts

in home furnishings. They have a really

good range of outdoor fabrics that will

stand up to the weather; designed to

hold their colour longer and cope with

changing weather conditions.

This is also the place to go to find the

latest look in curtaining and upholstery

fabrics. The top fabric houses regularly

send them fabric sample hangers of

the hottest textiles, including from

Charles Parsons, James Dunlop,

and Maurice Kain. Maxine can also

source fabrics from other suppliers.

In store, there is a limited quantity

of rolled stock, favourably priced

from $10 to $20 a metre for curtain

fabric, and between $25 and $35 a

metre for upholstery fabric.

Classic Curtains & Interiors can

also add linings to existing curtains

to make a room darker allowing

children to sleep better; something

that can be a problem in summer.

For those making Christmas gifts, there

is a collection of craft fabrics available,

such as with Father Christmas images

that can be cut out for appliqueing onto

cards, bags, runners, wall hangings, boxes

or children’s toys. There is also decoupage

arts and crafts equipment.

Maxine’s considerable experience in

the industry allows her to ably assist

customers with all aspects of their soft

furnishing needs. Whether it is technical

advice on the type of header or lining to

use or choice of suitable fabric, Maxine

will help you to choose curtains that will

look good and be an asset to your home.

Classic Curtains & Interiors is located

at 817 Jones Road, on the Izone side of

Rolleston. They are open 9.00-4.30pm,

ARA BUSINESS

Upskilling leads to a

rewarding retail career

A change of mind and flexible study

options brought Neil Chand to the job he

loved. Four years ago Neil was in his last

year of his biochemistry degree, when he

decided to take a little break and save some

money.

“I ended up working in retail and it turned

out I really liked it. I found out that it could

be a career too and decided to pursue this

path. I started working at the Warehouse

Stationary in Papanui and loved it. I never

regretted quitting my biochemistry studies.”

Three years into his job Neil wanted to

upskill to take the next step in his career. He

enrolled in the six month, Level 3 Certificate

in Retail at Ara Institute of Canterbury. He

studied part-time, so he could combine his

studies with his job.

“I followed the in-house training at my job,

but was looking for something more. The

Ara Certificate in Retail gave a more general

perspective on retail. My main takeaway was

the leadership development. Being able to

understand emotional awareness and deal

with different behaviours. You learn to cater

to any kind of employee and customer.”

This skill turned out to be very useful as

Neil was promoted to a leadership role as

Assistant Store Manager after finishing his

course.

“An important part of my role is coaching

the team. I’m motivating the team on

the floor and making sure the customers

are being looked after. I love making the

customers happy, we’re there to provide

solutions for them.”

The retail programmes at Ara provide

students with essential industry knowledge

and skills for a strong start to a career in this

sector. The options range from entry level

qualifications to a degree, and part-time

study options make it easy for people like

Neil to upskill.

For those who want to go further in

their studies, options include the Bachelor

of Applied Retail Management, which

offers specialist knowledge and skills in

strategic decision making, communication

strategies, accounting and retail enterprise

management. A 400-hour work placement

helps students develop and practice realworld

skills.

Ensuring a safe

work place

Learning first aid is not only a

part of ensuring a safe work place, but also

an integral part of our engagement with

the wider community. We all learn the

necessary skills to ensure that in times of

emergency we are able to assist our work

colleagues, but are we able to take these

skills home, into the community or on to

the sports field?

not all work places are the same and

the injury risk for each place can be wide

and variable. The office attended by

administrators does not carry the same

risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance

from a regular ambulance service. it is

therefore essential that you pick the right

first aid course to suit all of your activities –

both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who

does not have a high risk work environment

and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial

injuries, or the ability to perform effective

can be achieved on a

sports field either as

a spectator or player

when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402

and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not

cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye

injuries, hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of

the work place, in fact one in three injuries

occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen.

new Zealand children are twice as likely

to die through injury as children who live

in australia. They mostly die as a result

of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the

home. fatalities from leisure and sport are

not far behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the

additional unit standard 6400 and provides

a wide knowledge base for medium to high

risk environments. This course covers many

of the skills required to deal with the most

common injuries, such as falls (which can

result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and

dealing with complex scenes such as motor

vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best

suited to your needs, ask your accredited

first aid training provider. They can explain

the course content and give you options

that will best suit your needs. Look beyond

the workplace and consider your family and

your location. Check that you have a good

quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with

replenished items, and that everyone knows

where it is located.

An exciting career

in Automotive

Southern Institute of Technology

(SIT) graduate Janaka Liyanapathirana’s

childhood love of cars has seen him excel

to an exciting career in Automotive.

Janaka completed the Certificate in

Automotive Engineering in Christchurch

in October and, after being recognised for

his overall outstanding efforts throughout

the course, has graduated with a prized

welding helmet gifted by BOC.

“I was really surprised about the award,

it was so unexpected,” he said.

Coming to New Zealand to pursue his

dream of becoming a mechanic, Janaka

said he tried different automotive courses

around the country but only found the

right course for him at SIT.

“I was so lucky to find the right place, the

right course and the right tutors [at SIT],

from all of the other places where I tried

within NZ,”

“The best opportunity the course gave

me was the live practical experience and

institutions with proper techniques from

the tutors who are qualified and have long

term experience in the same trade.”

Janaka said he has already received an

opportunity to enter the workforce and

start his career.

“I think I have followed the right track,

by the time I finished I got a job offer from

the biggest car company in Christchurch,

so I have already planned to join them and

enjoy working with what I have studied.”

Driven

High levels of refinement in CX-9

• By Ross Kiddie

QUIET, AS defined by the Oxford

Dictionary, is gentle sound, and

that could certainly be said of

Mazda’s new CX-9.

The new seven-seat sport utility

vehicle is stealth-like in its movement,

hushed and almost devoid

of sound; of course, there is some

audible presence, but the CX-9

is certainly one of the quietest

vehicles I’ve had the good fortune

to drive.

That doesn’t surprise me

because Mazda is extending the

boundaries of automotive design,

all of its recent product has stood

out for engineering prowess, that

is backed up by the number of

awards the company has received

in recent years, and the CX-9

explores that even further.

Not only is movement in the

CX-9 whisper quiet, the engine

has also been developed so that it

works in the area where it is most

effective and efficient.

Forget about the 3-litre V6

engine which used to power the

previous-generation CX-9, the

newcomer gets a turbocharged,

2.5-litre, four-cylinder unit and

it has been engineered so that

the torque pattern delivers useful

power low in the rev band, the

kind of power you need for everyday

driving.

The engine is still redlined at

MAZDA CX-9: Engine designed to operate at low revs.

6000rpm and that is easily accessible,

especially so in sport mode,

but there is no need to go there,

the turbocharged boost arrives

at only 2000rpm and is managed

so that acceleration is ushered in

forcefully from below that.

Peak power is rated at a healthy

170kW and is developed at just

5000rpm, which is also low, thus

minimising the need to explore

the top end. Torque is the most

important ingredient in any

engine and in the CX-9’s case it

pulls from absolutely nowhere.

Other than the useful acceleration

benefits (0-100km/h in

8.8sec), an 8.4-litre per 100km

(34mpg) combined cycle fuel

usage average is also claimed.

That correlates well to the

9.2l/100km (31mpg) figure

constantly showing in the test

car, along with an amazing

5.7l/100km (49mpg) instantaneous

figure at 100km/h, the engine

very relaxed at 1900rpm.

These are extraordinary figures

for a vehicle which weighs in

excess of 1800kg, and are indicative

of the development which

has gone into the SkyActive range

of engines which power almost

all of Mazda’s current product.

It’s not just the fact that the

engine is so strong, nor the fact

that it does its job without making

a fuss that makes the CX-9 so

special, this big family-friendly

wagon lands at just $52,995 for

the entry-level front-wheel-drive

model.

An extra $2500 will buy you

into a four-wheel-drive GSX

while a range-topping Limited

lands at $62,995.

• Price – Mazda CX-9 GSX,

$52,995

• Dimensions – Length,

5075mm; width, 1969mm;

height, 1747mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

2488cc, 170kW, 420Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.8sec

• Fuel usage – 8.4l/100km

For me, I’d be more than happy

with the entry-level GSX, as

tested, it is beautifully-built and

comes with a substantial level of

fitment, way too comprehensive

to detail. ButSpecial mention

must be made of the CX-9’s Bose

audio. It is a stunner, the sound is

rich and clear, and I guess a lot of

what makes its clarity stand out is

the absence of road noise. If you

are a CX-9 buyer, ask for the Bose

USB flash drive which has music

especially formulated to enhance

the audio’s characteristics.

In terms of the driveline, power

is directed through a six-speed

automatic transmission, and it is

a beauty in terms of shift refinement

and seamless gearing. As

mentioned, the engine wants to

constantly work low down so that

gear changes come early, but such

is the clever way the power flow

is managed there is no drop in

performance. I barely used the

sport protocols, opting instead

for standard mode which still

offers flighty engine operation if

you wish to be aggressive with

the accelerator.

While many SUV buyers opt

for four-wheel-drive, and in the

CX-9’s case that is most affordable,

the two-wheel-drive model

would suit me, it wants for nothing,

ride comfort and handling

aren’t compromised,

I took the test car on a highway

loop to Oxford. When it came

time to tackle a few twists and

turns, I found the big SUV to be

capable and balanced in a corner.

For a large and tall body the

CX-9 feels more athletic than I

was expecting.

After a few months living in

a student flat my daughter has

shifted back home and I used the

CX-9 to transport many of her

belongings back. It’s that kind of

versatility that makes big SUVs

so popular. With the third row

of seats folded flat the load area

is cavernous (810-litres), while

the seating configurations are

versatile.

It’s not often that I get so

enthusiastic about SUVs, but

the CX-9 is a class act. It is right

up there in terms of luxury-like

travel, and at a price where it is

hugely competitive in a popular

part of the market.

Disruption to Water Race Service

Tennyson Street/Springston

Rolleston Road

Contractors working on behalf of Council will soon start piping the Tennyson

Street water race between Kidman Street to south of the Rolleston School. This

is part of a series of roading upgrade projects planned as part of the Rolleston

Town Centre Master Plan starting with providing a roundabout at the intersection

of Tennyson Street, Byron Street and Kidman Street. Piping of the water race will

enable a new footpath to be installed and parking improvements to occur along

Rolleston Schools’ frontage, which will then progressively extend south along

Tennyson Street over time.

Schick Construction will be undertaking this work between 21 November and

22 December 2016. Work will recommence in late January through to the end

of February 2017. Water race users will experience a reduced water race supply

during this time as pumps will be used to divert water around the work site. Any

questions relating to this disruption should be directed to Council on 03 347 2800.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Marketing your property – what does it mean?

Marketing a property is more than presentation and advertising.

Conceptually, marketing is

identifying what prospective buyers

are looking for then providing this. For

example, larger homes and sections

may appeal more to families. Young

couples starting out, generally have

tight budgets leading them to smaller

properties, while older people may be

looking to downsize.

Brand new has a particular appeal

however there will always be a market

for established homes. Having a

picture in your mind of the type of

buyer will help in determining the

features to emphasise.

If repairs and maintenance need

to be carried out before putting the

property on the market, seek the

advice of a real estate agent. They

can advise on what tasks are worth

completing and what might be

unnecessary expense.

Installing a new kitchen or changing

the carpet may lift the house but will

the expense be recouped in the sale

price? On the other hand, modernising

an outdated kitchen or bathroom

could make a huge difference to

the look of the place. Avoid going

overboard unless the capital value of

properties in the area justifies this.

Real estate agents are in contact with

prospective buyers so aware of what

they are looking for. Draw on their

expertise and advice to help make the

most of the selling opportunity.

Establishing a relevant and fair price

for a property is important. Most

agents calculate this based on the price

properties in the area have sold for,

and what a particular property has to

offer. A unique or exceptional property

may justify a higher price, though

run-down properties can gain more

than they appear to merit. This might

be due to the area or other factors that

suggest a good investment.

When promoting a property, mix it

up and be creative so your property

stands out from the rest. TradeMe

is a must; checked by most people

looking to buy. Present the features the

property offers as benefits to potential

buyers.

Erect a sign outside the property.

People stop and look at photographs

and this might spark sufficient

interest for them to visit an open

home. Spending a fortune on massive

advertising campaigns in every media

might seem a way to attract potential

buyers but may be an unnecessary

expense without the return. A better

philosophy could be a little often.

This will depend on the value of the

property, your budget and how best to

reach target buyers.

Buyer perception is also significant.

For example, properties that sit for a

while can become stale. Resting the

property by taking it off the market for

a short time, then relisting perhaps in

spring or when sales in the area appear

to lift a little, can make a difference.

However, if a property does not sell

immediately there is no need for panic

or dropping the price. It may simply be

that the right buyer has not yet come

along. If the mix is right your property

will sell.

Outdoor rooms

Just because the outdoor space doesn’t

have walls, that doesn’t change the basic

principles applied to any design project

inside your home. With a few simple

fundamentals to guide you, you’ll soon

see how easy it is to create a beautiful

outdoor room you’ll love entertaining

and relaxing in throughout the warm

days and balmy nights of summer.

Key considerations include style,

function, lighting and mood, and

remember that your outdoor room ought

to be an extension of the look you’ve

created within your home, which reflects

your personality and lifestyle.

FOCAL POINT

Beginning, as with any room of the

home, a space must always have a focal

point to anchor the space. For some, this

may be a bar or barbeque area, a large

dining table, or a chill-out zone with

couches or loungers. Outdoor fireplaces

are becoming more and more popular

as our living areas blend seamlessly

between indoor and outdoor entertaining

throughout the changing of the seasons.

They can serve not only practical purpose

of somewhere to gather around to warm

as the nights get shorter, an outdoor fire

can make a stunning feature or room

divider for any outdoor living area.

Water feature like a pond with

beautiful Koi fish can also service as

a great outdoor focal point, creating a

tranquil environment in which to relax

and unwind in, or create a meditative

Japanese rock garden which your outdoor

area can overlook.

IN THE ZONE

If you already have a large terrace or

outdoor area, a blank canvas is a great

place to start. If you have a particularly

large outdoor area, dividing the space

into zones makes for a more functional

and aesthetically pleasing space. You can

do this by using a number of different

elements, such as contrasting flooring

materials or by creating different levels

of decking. However, if you’re after a

seamless indoor/outdoor flow or wish to

create the illusion of more space, use the

same flooring materials indoors and out.

Divisions can also be made with the

clever positioning of furniture. Use

modular seating to create divisions

between zones, and are also an ideal way

to camouflage ugly walls.

Create privacy and soften sharp angels.

Living walls, an ever-increasing popular

vertical plant system, can be either free

standing to create different outdoor areas

and can be on wheels to easily transform

your outdoor space at a moments notice.

Play with height and scale with

various types of planters, whether you

use hanging planters to draw the eye

upwards, or oversized planter pots to add

drama.

GO WITH THE FLOW

Creating a great indoor/outdoor flow is

easily created by opening up your kitchen

with bi-fold doors or windows to create

a servery or bar for easy entertaining.

If you are building your home from

the ground up, you may want to design

an outdoor room which lies at the very

epicentre of the building with rooms

opening onto the communal courtyard

with bi-fold doors.

FUNCTION OVER FORM

Consider what you intend to use your

outdoor space for. If you don’t plan on

eating outside, there’s no need for a dining

table, but buy some comfortable outdoor

seating instead, and if you only intend

on sitting outdoors during the evening,

then don’t waste money on awnings and

umbrellas, and invest the money in an

outdoor fireplace which you will actually

use.

ATMOSPHERE

Create unique and personalised

outdoor decor with textiles and

homewares from your travels, your

favourite antique shop, or make your

own shell garlands or wreaths from

beach holidays. String up fairy lights

or lanterns to create a festive mood in

the evenings.
