Drinking

driver

clocked at

164km/h

Motorist four times the limit

• By Andrew King

A MOTORIST was caught

travelling at 164km/h with four

times the legal breath/alcohol

limit on Saturday.

Senior Constable Andy Williamson

was on his way to a call

in Akaroa when he clocked the

speeding, 40-year-old man on

the Christchurch Akaroa Rd,

SH75, near Motukarara at about

5pm.

Moments before he recorded

him at that speed, Senior Constable

Williamson said the man’s

car was travelling at 172km/h.

When the driver, who was

from Christchurch, got out of

his Volkswagen Golf, Senior

Constable Williamson noticed

the smell of alcohol.

He recorded a breath/alcohol

reading of 1025mcg/l.

The legal limit is 250mcg/l.

“It is absolute madness. It’s

one of the single most reckless

acts of driving I have experienced,”

Senior Constable Williamson

said.

“He is risking himself and

others if he was to crash at that

speed, it would be horrific to

everyone involved. It is suicidal.”

The man was arrested and

charged with driving at a dangerous

speed and excess breath

alcohol.

When asked what his excuse

for driving so recklessly, he said:

“I just put my foot down.”

His licence is suspended for

28 days from the incident and

he had to pay for a tow truck to

collect his car from the side of

the road.

He will appear in the

Christchurch District Court on

June 7.

News.....................................3-13

THAT WAS one heck of a crazy

piece of driving we reveal on page

1 today.

The motorist was going

160km/h-plus and was tanked up

on enough jungle juice to put him

four times the legal drink driving

limit – and in hot water with the

law.

The road between Little River

and Motukarara where he was

stopped is notorious for crashes.

When you are going at the speed

he was and full of booze the

chance of crashing at some stage of

his journey was very, very high.

So luckily for other road users

and the gentleman himself, Senior

Constable Andy Williamson from

the Lincoln police station was

heading to Akaroa on a job.

A quick U-turn, flashing lights,

and a dangerous unguided missile

was neutralised.

Group to look at freedom camping

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A WORKING party will be set

up to ensure the district has

facilities in place to cope with

the influx of freedom campers.

It comes as a result of the

district having to deal with large

numbers of freedom campers

due to the Christchurch

City Council

changing its rules

last year.

The decision

for the working

Grant

Miller

party was made at

a public excluded

meeting last week

with the district councillors.

Last year, Christchurch City

Council changed its freedom

camping bylaw to ban campers

without toilets from councilowned

land.

Mayor Sam Broughton, who

is on the committee, said the

district is suffering because of

Christchurch City Council’s

decisions.

He said the working party

will look at facilities for places

including Lake Coleridge,

Chamberlains Ford and Coes

Ford for the following summer.

The details on who will make

up the working party are yet to

be revealed.

District council chief executive

INFLUX: The Coes Ford camping ground is one of the areas to have an increase in freedom

campers over the past year as a result of the Christchurch City Council tightening up its rules.

David Ward said the working

party has not been formed, but

some district councillors have

informally offered to assist.

Recent incidents of people

defecating at the St Mary’s

Anglican Church churchyard in

Springston during summer were

raised at the district council’s

draft 2017-2018 Annual Plan

hearing last week.

In his submission, Springston

Community Committee

chairman Rupert Tipples

discussed the lack of public

toilets in the township and

requested toilets be established.

Concern was also raised at

the Springston Reserve and

Associated Sports Committee

meeting last week that people

have been defecating in the

reserve.

The committee would like to

see a two compartment toilet

facility – one for able and one for

disabled people in the area.

District councillor Grant

Miller said he does not see

why toilet facilities cannot be

provided in Springston and

there is a need around the entire

district.

“Most ratepayers would

suggest, it is better to have public

toilets than have someone going

in the churchyard,” he said.

Earlier this month, Selwyn

Times revealed that a report on

the impact of freedom camping

in the area was presented to

district councillors.

However, the report may not

be released until August.

working party will help

In Brief

FARMER CAMPAIGN

Selwyn farmers will be among

those targeted by a campaign

started by Environment Canterbury

last week. It will remind

them of their responsibility to

meet water quality limits and

help them to find out if they will

need a water consent to farm this

year.

RECYCLING FACILITIES

Arthur’s Pass and Castle Hill will

receive new recycling facilities.

Recycling stations using large,

customised shipping containers

will be established in three

locations – two in Arthur’s Pass

and one at Castle Hill. The proposed

system will recover about

40-tonne of recyclable material

per annum. .

RE-ESTABLISHED

CYCLEWAY IN DARFIELD

The Malvern Community

Board was asked at its meeting

yesterday if a triangular block

of trees on the corner of Wards

and Clintons Rds can be used

as a cycle track. The request

was made by Darfield resident

Ken Jorgensen. Mr Jorgensen

discovered an overgrown track

in the area that is estimated to

have not been used for several

years. The land is a district

council forestry block.

Key projects highlighted in district’s

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NEARLY 200 residents have

weighed in on the district

council’s Annual Plan.

A health hub in Rolleston,

district-wide rates for stormwater

and plans for an extension

to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre

are among the key projects in

the draft 2017-2018 Annual

Plan.

Consultation for the plan

closed recently.

A hearing panel for verbal submissions

was held last week with

the panel made up of the district

councillors.

Submissions were made

by organisations including

Federated Farmers, the Leeston

Community Committee, the

Malvern Community Board and

Environment Canterbury.

Federated Farmers supported

a district-wide rate for

stormwater and encouraged

consideration of targeted rates

for footpath extensions and any

ongoing maintenance.

It wished to emphasise that

any increased rates burden can

affect ratepayers differently, so it

is important to look beyond the

“average” increase.

Squash Canterbury has

pointed out there is inadequate

Jack Pearcy

facilities to assist their sport in

the district.

“For our sport to

remain relevant, we need

facilities where people

are living,” Squash

Canterbury facilities

representative Scott

Gardiner said in his

submission.

It would like to look

at securing facilities at

Foster Park in Rolleston.

The Kirwee Township Committee

asked for Courtenay Rd

to be widened from State Highway

73 to Wards Rd as a result

of the South Island Field

Days.

The committee’s secretary

Ngaire Kent said in

her submission the huge

amount of traffic from

the event caused significant

damage to the side

of the road.

The Springfield

Township Committee

requested a plot of land

at 1 Tawera Lane to be made

into a native forest reserve for

the benefit of the township, its

visitors and for environmental

biodiversity.

About 10,000 plants would

be needed for the project. The

planting itself would be done

over a five-year period, at 2000

trees per year.

Funds would be sought from

the project through the Lotteries

Environment and Heritage

fund.

Doyleston Community

Committee member Jack Pearcy

said in his submission he was

concerned about the condition

of Leeston Rd between

Irwell Hall and the Irwell

village.

Included in his submission,

he said it was disappointing

to note that the ratepayers of

Leeston will not have their

library opening on Sundays and

their weekday hours are different

from the other libraries in the

district.

Mr Pearcy said work should be

done on making provision for a

new cemetery in the Rolleston/

West Melton area.

He was also supportive of

the inclusion of a dump station

in Leeston (requested by the

Leeston Community Committee)

so that the camper vans have

somewhere to discharge their

wastewater.

The Castle Hill Village Township

Committee discussed a

range of issues in their submission

including asking for the

village’s speed limit to be lowered

to 30km/h and the district

council develops a long-term

plan for waste.

The submission said significant

number of visitors are attracted

to the Craigieburn Basin

due to the three attractions Cave

Stream, Kura Tāwhiti, and the

Craigieburn Trails.

Annual Plan

It sought from the district

council $3000 pa for the maintenance

of the tracks and asked

to explore a future plan around

facilities, development and marketing

in the area.

It also covered that the village’s

public toilets are heavily

used and in need of a separate

block and the committee is in

need of developing appropriate

activities and equipment for its

playground.

A large number of non-verbal

submissions were made from

residents, the Lincoln Community

Centre, the Rolleston

Medical Centre and the Lakeside

Soldiers Memorial Hall Committee.

Along with the 185 submissions

made, the council received

241 comments on their online

survey.

The online survey revealed

51.6 per cent of people who took

part in the survey were from the

Selwyn central ward.

Fourteen per cent of people

who took part were from the

Springs ward, 11 per cent from

Malvern, nine per cent from

Ellesmere, while 12 per cent were

unsure what ward they lived in.

Key questions asked in the

HOURS: The library at Leeston will not be opening on Sundays.

survey was around if people

would support a standard stormwater

rate of $85 per property in

areas where the council manages

the stormwater.

Overall 45.6 per cent supported

the proposal while 42 per

cent did not. 51.3 per cent of the

Selwyn Central ward did not

support the rise while 66.7 per

cent of people in Ellesmere did.

Seventy per cent of

participants were for a new

health hub, about 57 per cent

for the extension to the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre and 60 per

cent was for extra funding by

sealing sections of 19 footpaths

throughout the area.

A new multi-purpose pool

is also under consideration by

the district council with an

increase in the swimming pool

rate likely to be needed to build

the facilities. Sixty-two per cent

of participants on the online

survey supported the idea.

Children focus of skate park

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LACK OF space means a skate

park in Lincoln will be aimed at

young teenagers and children.

Designs for the new skate park

in Lincoln have been released

showing it will

predominantly cater

for children and

amateur skaters.

The skate park

Grant

Miller

Malcolm

Lyall

will be sited next

to the children’s

playground where

the barbecue area

is at the Lincoln

Event Centre. The

barbecue area will

be re-sited close by.

Selwyn district

councillor Grant

Miller said the size

of the skate park

came down to what space is

available in the area.

“Finding a site within Lincoln

has been very challenging . . .

there has always been a reason

of why not from nearby residents,”

he said.

But a larger skate park similar

to the Prebbleton Community

Park has not been ruled out in

the future.

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall

said, as Lincoln develops with

new subdivisions, a site might

be found.

“Eventually, I would like to see

that in Lincoln, but it is a matter

of having it in the right space,”

he said.

In the district council’s

2015-2025 Long Term Plan, it is

projected Lincoln will reach a

population of 9442 by 2025.

Consultation on the designs

were held last week outside the

event centre.

The skate park is planned to

be about 260m 2 .

District council community

projects and facilities manager

Cameron Warr said it will cater

to all age groups from learner

to medium level ability skaters,

scooter and BMX riders.

A big bowl, a shallow bowl,

skatable seats, new plants and

lighting is in the initial plans.

The existing seating and barbecue

shelter will be relocated to

make way for the skate park and

a new drinking fountain will be

added.

The skate park was initially

planned to be located in an area

behind the Lincoln Rugby Club.

But there was concern about

vandalism.

SET PLAN: The

new location for

the Lincoln Skate

Park will require

the existing

seating and

barbecue shelter

near the Lincoln

Event Centre to be

removed.

The Men’s Shed of Lincoln

Society may now utilise the

space by the rugby club for a

new facility.

The skate park will be close to

the Lincoln Bowling Club.

Club member Isabel Murray

said they were under the

impression it was for under-

10-year-olds.

To view the plan, go to the

district council’s Facebook page.

POPULAR: Springston School pupils learning to grow healthy

food with a volunteer at the Springston secret garden . ​

Volunteers needed to

keep garden in operation

Children dismayed with

amount of rubbish at ford

PUPILS AT Springston

School have spent a

day weeding, collecting

rubbish and testing water

at Chamberlains Ford.

The work was part of

the Serve NZ Anzac Day

project getting pupils

to pledge two hours of

service.

They identified Chamberlains

Ford as their community

project and were

joined by Enviroschools

Canterbury facilitator

Matt Stanford and resident

Mike Glover.

Mr Glover and Mr Stanford

discussed with the

students the environmental

impacts on the natural

environment.

Pupils were dismayed at

the amount of rubbish that

had been collected within

the Chamberlains Ford

perimeter.

Pupils Lilly Maree and

Nina said when they found

out they were going to

spend the day at Chamberlains

they were excited.

“Going to Chamberlains

Ford and seeing all those

weeds around our plants

and so much rubbish lying

on the ground, not to

mention the water quality

still being so bad made me

feel kind of upset because

I love going there,” one of

the pupils said.

The children ripped out

a lot of nasty weed and

collected several bags of

rubbish.

A POPULAR garden with

Springston School pupils is need

of more volunteers to keep it

running.

The Springston Environmental

Community group is calling

out for helpers to maintain its

Springston secret garden or it

may no longer be sustainable.

“We now do not have enough

people to keep the garden going

. . . if we don’t find some extra

helpers soon we might not be able

to keep the garden,” Springston

Environmental Community

Committee chairwoman Dr Sue

Jarvis said.

She said the committee is

looking for as many volunteers as

possible.

Volunteers are needed to help

keep the garden tidy, run programmes

for Springston School

pupils, act as adviser or a overall

co-ordinator.

The garden was so popular

it even had a visit from former

prime minister John Key in

2014.

The garden’s lost its both its

volunteer co-ordinator and adviser

last year.

Dr Jarvis said the loss of the

garden would be a huge shame

for the Springston community.

The garden was first set up

in 2011 in the back section of a

Springston resident and has a

gate into the primary school.

It was named the “secret garden”

by Springston pupils and is

well-used.

Dr Jarvis said the pupils use

the garden with the support of

teachers and community members

to learn how to grow and use

healthy food.

“Having the opportunity to

grow things makes our kids

smarter and gives them opportunity

to show leadership skills.

A practical outside classroom is

an ideal learning environment

for many of our children and

they experience success here,” she

said.

SELWYN TIMES

Selwyn Waihora Zone

Committee chairman Allen

Lim responds to Mike

Glover’s letter in Selwyn

Times (May 16)

While we can always do better

with our communication, I am

surprised that the Te Waihora/

Lake Ellesmere nutrient load

limit is news to Mike Glover

(May 9).

It has been discussed with the

community for several years and

the water plan that includes it

(Plan Change 1 to the Land &

Water Regional Plan) was made

operative in early 2016.

Following through on our

aim of restoring the mauri of Te

Waihora while maintaining a

prosperous economy, the Selwyn

Waihora Zone Committee arrived

at the 4800-tonne level

having listened to the whole

community. This was an open,

transparent and democratic

course of action.

The load limit remained in

place throughout the Resource

Management Act process in

which the public could also

participate.

In the Selwyn Te Waihora

catchment, farmers with nitrogen

losses above 15kg per hectare

per year cannot leach more than

their losses between 2009 and

2013.

In 2017, this loss needs to be

managed in line with industryagreed

good management

practices.

In 2022, farmers will need to

make further reductions; 30 per

cent in the case of dairy.

We are not telling farmers

how to run their businesses, but

they must find a way to meet the

limits.

There will be enforcement

consequences if they don’t.

Further, restoration and

enhancement programmes

such as Whakaora Te Waihora

will lead to improved water

quality in the lake and the wider

catchment.

Sarah Anderson responds

to Selwyn Times’ article on

the Snake Creek restoration

project

The proposed restoration project

on Snake Creek is an excellent

idea. Furthermore, wouldn’t

it be fantastic to see every drain

and creek around Selwyn resuscitated.

We would all be so much

better off, more wetlands,

more creek and riverbed

restoration and management will

make farming more sustainable

and our waterways much

healthier for everyone to enjoy –

most importantly our flora and

fauna.

Lee Brehaut responds

to Selwyn Times’ article

on the proposed cycleway

between Leeston and

Doyleston

I fully support the development

of a cycleway between

Doyleston and Leeston.

Doyleston and Leeston will

continue increasing their

populations, Doyleston has an

awesome park – including a

MANAGEMENT:

Improved

in Te Waihora/

Lake Ellesmere

(left) and

Snake Creek is

welcomed.

BMX track – more people are

wanting to cycle as a recreation

and are looking for places to ride

in safety, the distance is an easy

ride to access services in Leeston

village.

As a resident of Doyleston, I

have walked home from Leeston

along Leeston Rd. It was not

pleasant in spite of it being

mid-morning and in good

weather.

Two cars (one overtaking)

travelling towards Doyleston

passed together right beside me

as I walked on the side towards

oncoming traffic.

With my back to them I did

not see these two cars coming

so when they passed me at 80

-100km/h. I got a fright and realised

just how unsafe this stretch

of road is.

Because of the berm camber,

it is hard to walk well away from

the road edge. I would never

cycle on this road.

This cycleway is in the district

plan and I believe is an excellent

project to enhance the live, work

and play mantra of the Selwyn

district.

A community punching

well above its weight

Dunsandel

Community

Committee

chairman

Russell

Dalzell

writes

about

developments in the

area

We live in a vibrant,

small community that

punches way above it’s

weight in pretty much

every aspect of life.

Whether it be school

achievement, sporting

achievement, business

achievement or just good

old family and community

values.

We are in the closing

stages of a seven-year programme

to replace our old

community hall.

This was badly damaged

in the September 4, 2010,

earthquake.

This new facility is going

to be one that we will be

proud of and will serve as

a focal point for the whole

community for many years

to come.

To achieve this we asked

the locals to dip into their

Care Homes

pockets and the response

has been amazing.

Rarely has a project such

as this experienced such

generosity from the local

community.

This community cares

about core values that

make life in Dunsandel the

special place it is.

The grand opening will

at this stage be in late July

or early August and all

locals are invited to attend.

While we have been

busy with the new facility

we have also installed new

tennis/netball courts at the

Dunsandel Domain and

another two are on the

drawing board for 2018/19.

We have a near new

all-weather bowling green

which is well supported.

Small bore rifle shooting

has one of the best facilities

in Canterbury tucked away

inside the existing sports

centre. Rugby, cricket, tennis,

netball, twilight netball

and touch rugby are

all active on our domain.

Once the new facility is

opened we would love to

see the resurgence of other

indoor sports.

The school speaks for itself

with academic achievement

levels up there with

the best.

The township boasts the

world famous Dunsandel

Store, great tea rooms and

a reborn hotel that is

rapidly gaining a great

reputation as a fine place

to dine.

Quirky retail in Che

Bellos and hairdressing for

the ladies and a barber for

the gents.

Also a couple of very well

appointed vet clinics and

the iconic Happers Honda.

The Trinity Church (Anglican

and co-operating) is

strong in a modern, warm

and welcoming environment.

A new subdivision

has been planned on the

north-west of the township

so the future is looking

very bright indeed.

A family-friendly

place to be.

Located in north west Christchurch, Bupa Maidstone

Care Home puts you and your family first, with rest

home, hospital and respite care options available.

STRONG RUN: Thomas Simmers

fends off the opposition.

• By Gordon Findlater

WAIHORA ARE still alive in their

defence of the Combined Country

Cup after sneaking into the

play-offs with a final round-robin

match win over Saracens 20-16.

The match at Tai Tapu Domain

served as a winner take all playoff

berth. Coming into the game

Waihora were in fifth place behind

Saracens, which occupied the final

play-off spot in section 1.

“It was like a finals footy game

and it brought out the best in the

guys,” said Waihora coach Joff

Moore.

The home team held a 10-6 lead

at half-time and were never given

much room to breathe by Saracens

which were also desperate to book a

spot in this weekend’s quarter-final.

“The last five minutes was tense,

they had a lot of the ball but our

defence was able to force errors,”

said Moore.

Waihora will now travel to their

nemesis club Southbridge on

Saturday in a rematch of last year’s

final.

“They’ve gone through the competition

unbeaten and it will be

tough, but they’re in the finals now

and it all starts again,” said Moore.

“There was an issue with the architects

plans which impacted on the noise levels

of the bar and restaurant,” says owner

Murray Davie.

“We had customers kindly bring this

to our attention, which is great because it

means they are really invested in the place

and love calling it their own. As a result

we have gone ahead and remedied the

issue.”

New sound ceiling baffles have been

installed which have made a difference

in reducing the noise for all those who

go there to enjoy a meal, have a coffee or

meet up with friends for a drink.

This is just in time, as the Silver Dollar

started its quiz nights last week which saw

teams take part in the Believe It or Not

quiz – now a weekly feature of the

bar and restaurant.

The Silver Dollar opened earlier this

year after owners Murray and Bernie

Taylor spent two years planning and

developing the establishment.

One thing is clear – the owners really

listen to their customers.

“We are really proud of this place and

we want the people of Selwyn to be proud

of it too, so we hope they continue to let

us know of the things they love about it

and the things that need improving. After

all we want this to be the place where our

locals and visitors come and relax and

really enjoy themselves.”

Alpine recycling

station open

The first of three new recycling stations is now operating at Arthur’s Pass. The new station is

open to local residents, holiday home owners, businesses and tourists. Later this year a second

station will be opened at Arthur’s Pass and another is also planned at Castle Hill. The Arthur’s

Pass stations are located within the National Park. An estimated 250,000 visitors pass through the

township each year.

The stations have been funded with support from the Government’s Waste Minimisation Fund.

The fund provides financial support for projects that improve New Zealand’s performance in

waste minimisation. It is funded from a levy which is charged on waste disposed of at landfills

to discourage waste. Over $60 million has been awarded to more than 120 projects across New

Zealand from the fund to date.

The recycling stations are constructed from converted 20 foot shipping containers. The bins

are fitted with kea proof flaps to reduce the risk of the inquisitive birds moving the bin contents

elsewhere or harming themselves by eating recyclables.

The recycling stations can accept clean glass bottles, household plastic containers, aluminium

and steel cans, paper and cardboard.

Protect your home through good

maintenance

For most families, their home is their biggest asset, so maintaining

your home in good condition is important to protect its condition

and value.

While most modern homes are low maintenance, this doesn’t

mean they are no maintenance. Many of the actions you can take

to protect your home are simple and low cost. One of the main

problems affecting New Zealand homes is indoor moisture. Damp

homes create an unhealthy environment and are harder to heat. You

can help reduce damp by:

· insulating your home

· ventilating it by regularly opening windows, using extractor fans or

a dehumidifier

· heating your home

· replacing gas heaters with electric or flued gas heaters.

If you identify your home has a problem with mould, water stains or

musty smells it could be a sign of a more serious problem like leaky

pipes – you can visit www.consumerbuild.org.nz for more information.

For brick veneer homes you need to check that drainage cavities

at the base of walls are clear and don’t have plants or soil blocking

them. For concrete block homes it is important to maintain

the waterproof coating which protects weathertightness. Fibre

cement cladding need more maintenance than other cladding

types and may require regular washing according to the product

manufacturer’s instructions. All homes need to be regularly

inspected and any maintenance items identified should be

addressed promptly to avoid deterioration. Again the consumer

build website has advice on this topic.

Areas you should regularly inspect around your home include the

roof, where you need to check that cladding, chimneys or flashings

are not corroding, lifting or crumbling. You should also trim trees to

prevent leaves from blocking gutters and causing flooding. Balconies

and decks need to be checked to ensure that the area can drain

properly to avoid water creating issues with rotting. For more advice

on home maintenance visit www.consumerbuild.org.nz

On the roads this week

Road stabilising work will take place on Morgans and Zig Zag Roads, the roads will remain open with

traffic controls operating. Footpath reconstruction work is planned on Dawn Place in Kirwee.

Hoskyns Road will be closed from 9am-6pm on Saturday 28 May (between Link Drive and Jones

Road) to allow splitter islands to be installed. A detour will operate via Link Drive. This work has been

rescheduled from 21 May due to weather conditions. Sewer line installation continues on sections of

Hamptons, Shands, and Selwyn Road to the intersection of Springston Rolleston Road. There may be a

reduction down to one lane on these roads with traffic delays possible.

Road widening work is continuing on Jones Road between Weedons Ross Road and the Lyttelton Port

Company until mid-June. The road will remain open, but may be reduced to one lane at times with

traffic delays expected. Maddisons Road is suggested as an alternative route at peak times.

The intersection of High Street and Manse Road in Leeston has reopened.

There will be changes to the traffic setups on both Weedons Ross Road Weedons Road over the next

couple of weeks. Please be alert to changes in the traffic management, follow all on-site signage and

drive to the conditions. Weedons Road from Main South Road through to Levi Road is a one-way

system. Waterholes Road is also a one-way system from Hamptons Road to 833 Waterholes Road

running south towards Robinsons Road with detours in place.

Look out for stock over winter

If you’re moving stock this winter, you’ll need to take care if you’re planning to use local roads.

Any stock moved on State Highways will need a consent from

the NZ Transport Agency. Council consent is needed for roads

with a 70km speed limit and other high volume roads. Cattle

must be moved in mobs smaller than 400 on roads in Selwyn.

It’s free to apply for consent from the council but you need to

allow two working days for your application to be processed.

To check the rules visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/stock.

When moving stock high visibility garments, lights and

warning signs are recommended so motorists can see stock.

To improve safety use a direct route and avoid moving stock

at peak driving times. A pilot vehicle is required at the front

and rear of stock at all times to avoid a crash. If you are

approaching animals on the road, slow down and don’t toot

your horn as it may cause the animals to panic.

Aquatic Centre car park extension

Work on an extension to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre car park starts

this week.

Most of the current car parking will be available but some areas will

be closed due to construction.

From this date, land between the Selwyn Aquatic Centre and

Rolleston College will be used as a temporary car park. During wet

weather the grassed area will not be available for parking.

The temporary parking area will improve public safety and ease

parking constraints over the next few months while construction on

other projects begins. It will be fenced off with plastic safety netting

with adequate spaces along the concrete pathway for customers to

have easy access to the aquatic centre.

Nor West Contracting Ltd, which is working on the car park

extension, will ensure the paddock is returned to its original

condition once the new car park is completed.

Alternative parking will continue to be available opposite the aquatic

centre entrance.

The aquatic centre car park extension is due to be completed by

late July this year. Please take care when driving with the increased

number of contractors and vehicles in the area.

The construction of another car park at Foster Park for park users

will begin soon after the aquatic centre carpark extension has been

completed. This car park will be opposite the centre.

Backyard critters

Speedy little house spider

Mike Bowie is

an ecologist

who specialises

in entomology

(insects

and other

invertebrates).

Each week he introduces

a new species found in his

backyard at Lincoln. His

column aims to raise public

awareness of biodiversity,

the variety of living things

around us

A very distinctive spider in

our backyards or houses is a

small fleet-footed spider with

black and white markings and

orange forelegs.

Until recently, it was known

as supunna picta, but arachnologists

have renamed it nyssus

coloripes.

The species is native to Australia

and was first recorded in

Auckland in 1943, with the first

South Island record in Marlborough

in 1969.

The 7-10mm long spider mimics

other species, such as wasps,

by waving its orange forelegs like

antennae thereby gaining some

protective advantage through its

menacing appearance.

In spite of its orange warning

colour, its bite is not medically

coloripes prefers dry, sunny and warm spots, which is why you

significant.

The species does not make a

web, but instead invades webs of

other spiders to eat the captured

insects or host spider.

Its characteristic fast and erratic

movements help it to not

only avoid predators, but also

catch its prey.

It prefers dry, sunny and warm

spots, which is why you often see

it around the house.

SOME OF New Zealand’s top

comedians will travel to Lincoln

to bring the house down for a

one night only comedy show in

October.

Live in Lincoln is back with comedians

Ben Hurley, Paul Ego,

Michele A’Court, Jeremy Elwood

and Gish set to take the stage for

a comedy night at the Lincoln

The event was first launched

last year with nearly 1000 people

attending the night featuring

comedians TV3’s Seven Days

Jeremy Corbett along with

Hurley, Justine Smith and Tom

Furniss.

Both Hurley and Ego are

regulars on Seven Days.

A’Court and Elwood also

often make guest appearances as

well as TV3’s The Project.

Gish, also known as Justin

Hansen, is a well-known

stand-up comedian who uses

his musical talent for creating

a combination of original and

popular song parodies.

Lincoln resident and promoter

David Parlane, who also

organised the successful Selwyn

Gardening

Essential tips on how to grow

Should you plant on the shortest

day, or is this based on myth

more than merit? Steve Wratten

provides the answers

THERE’S NO doubt about it –

garlic is certainly worth growing in

your vegetable garden.

In fact, our neighbour Sally

plants 52 cloves to produce a head

of the stuff for each week of the

year – sensible Sally.

She probably knows these little

bulbs have antibacterial, antiviral

and anticancer properties and they

even delay the development of

atherosclerosis.

They contain allicin (so do

onions and leeks) that protect

against stomach and colon cancer.

You can always buy the bulbs from

the supermarket, of course, but it

often comes from Mexico or China

and is dry and shrivelled, dusty and

tasteless.

So, let’s explore how to grow

good garlic.

WHERE TO BUY IT?

I get mine from farmers’

markets if possible. It’s likely to be

local and therefore grown under

conditions similar to those of your

garden.

Look for firm heads of the stuff,

ideally with pale lilac-coloured

streaks and fat individual cloves.

Failing that, see if a neighbour had

a good crop last year and can spare

a few that he/she has saved for

planting.

If you do buy some, go to a good

garden centre; some outlets sell

tiny, peeling heads of the stuff,

which can cost $1/bulb, in little

bags of red plastic mesh. Avoid.

You can also plant some of your

own crop from last year.

HEALTHY: When buying your bulbs, look for firm heads with pale

lilac-coloured streaks and fat cloves.

HOW TO STORE IT

I cadge or buy from the

supermarket those gossamer-like

bread bags in which the shop puts

still-warm bread before it goes on

the shelves.

They have hundreds of tiny

perforations to let the steam out

but, when used for garlic storage,

they keep the bulbs aerated (five

or six/bag, I suggest) to minimise

rotting in storage. You could store

them loose in trays in a shed but

the rats get mine. Hang the bags

from the shed roof, away from

direct sunlight, and they stay

aerated and free from rodents until

you need them.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

I have just got some feijoa plants, and I wanted to know how to care

for them with the frosts and snow. Do they need a frost cloth?

Yum! I can smell the delicious

Answer: aroma of feijoa and apple crumble

already! Feijoa plants are quite

hardy, so they do not need to be protected with frost cloth. Our

local expert says that he has not done this before, and his plants

are doing very well. Heavy snow may cause some branches to

break, but the plants will make plenty of new growth in the spring.

If this does happen, they may need a bit of a prune to tidy up any

broken branches but that’s about all that is needed.

good garlic

WHEN TO PLANT IT?

Books and websites keep

copying each other and chant the

meaningless mantra of ‘plant on

the shortest day and harvest on

the longest!’ Don’t they realise

that our garden soil is at its

coldest in July and August? Why

submit rootless and vulnerable

cloves to that challenge by

planting in June?

I wanted to find out what the

professionals do so I phoned

John Murphy of Phoenex Garlic

in Marlborough, for advice. His

first words were “I ignore that

shortest-day advice.” Well, that

was a good start! He plants his in

August or early September – to

get bulbs of an even shape and

good appearance. They may be

a little smaller at harvest but the

market cares more about shape

and appearance.

For home gardeners, he

recommends July. I asked

about varieties – I have never

seen a garlic label giving this

information. John said he

grows ‘Printanor’ (derived from

the French word ‘printemps’,

meaning spring; there’s another

clue as to planting time). He

also grows ‘Presto’, which goes

in around July. In Canterbury,

and further south, late July or

early August would not be too

late.

HOW TO PLANT IT?

I do something which I think

John does not do. I dig a shallow

trench where my garlic is due to

be planted, put some compost in

the trench (I use the cheap stuff

which comes in 25kg bags from

megastores; I paid only $3.80/

bag a few weeks ago), mix the

extracted soil into it within the

trench.

Add some wood ash or bought

potash fertiliser. You will then

have a mound of friable, noncompacted

planting medium in

which to press the cloves so they

are buried at twice their length.

HOW TO GROW IT

First, don’t over-water. If you

do, onion white rot may clobber

your plants. Early yellowing of

the leaves, before the bulbs are

anywhere near the right size, is a

tell-tale sign that something’s up.

Some gardeners dip the cloves

before planting in kitchen bleach

(I suggest a five per cent solution

but it’s a bit of a gamble). This

is supposed to kill the white-rot

spores.

Definitely do not grow your

garlic in the same place as in

previous years – white rot spores

persist in the soil for ages.

So, minimise the threats to

your having a great garlic crop

each year and look forward to

a mildly-garlicky mayonnaise,

stuffed and grilled half-shell

mussels or a garlic chicken

casserole.

WHAT YOU NEED TO

KNOW

When to sow

Plant the single cloves (not

the whole bulb!) in late

winter/early spring.

Where to plant

Full sun, in a slightly raised

bed, for drainage.

Plant spacing

15cm apart.

Time to maturity

Around seven months.

Where to buy

A good garden centre or

a farmers’ market or use a

few good bulbs left over

from the previous season’s

crop.

SYSTEMATIC: Dig a shallow trench and mix in some compost,

along with wood ash or potash fertiliser, before pressing in the

garlic cloves so they are buried at twice their depth.

our great range

of quality trees

and shrubs.

A solution to

clogged spouting

The Gum Leaf team are likely to be on the job within a week, anywhere

in Canterbury, with installation taking about 1-2 days.

Falling autumn leaves make a pretty

picture. They also clog up spouting, leading

to problems if debris accumulates and

blocks rainwater flowing off the roof, which

can overflow and seep into the house.

“Leaf litter can remain in spouting for

weeks,” says Rohan, owner of Gum Leaf.

As the South Island supplier of Gutter

Guard, Rohan and his team understand the

effect of wet leaves in roof spouting.

“Leaves may be wringing wet after several

weeks of dry weather,” explains Rohan.

“When spouting gets blocked it can rot

and water can seep into the house causing

damage.”

Damage caused in this manner may

not be covered by insurance, if an insurer

deems it is due to a lack of maintenance

that would have prevented such damage; a

requirement of any household policy.

Installing Gutter Guard eliminates

spouting blockages. This expanded steel

mesh product has a cheese grater-like

surface that sees leaf litter and tree debris

slide off.

Produced from Coloursteel, Gutter

Guard will last as long as the roof it is

attached to and can be colour matched so it

blends with the roof, making it aesthetically

pleasing.

Gutter Guard eliminates the need to

clean out spouting and prevents rats and

mice from using your roof as a warm place

to spend winter. They cannot push or eat

their way through Gutter Guard, unlike

some other products on the market.

With no rubbish or vermin in the roof,

your water system is protected from

potential contamination.

Gutter Guard strengthens and protects

spouting from the weight of snow, which

can do serious damage. It also prevents

snow and hail from causing a blockage or

valley, which if followed by rain could lead

to extensive flooding inside a roof.

Gum Leaf installs Gutter Guard

and supply for do-it-yourself, with an

installation video on-line at http://gumleaf.

co.nz.

Rohan is available Monday-Saturday,

on 0800 486 532 or by email: rohan@

gumleaf.co.nz. If he is does not answer,

leave a message. He will: call back

promptly, visit within a day, provide

free no obligation advice, and quote

immediately.

Home improvements made easy

• Carpentry work • Plastering • Painting • Fitting of showers

• Laying of tiles • Decks • Pergolas • Walls • Plus more!

When we love our home and its locale

yet it is just not big enough, adding an

extension or changing its footprint can

solve the problem. Renovating the home

can also give it a new look without the price

tag of a new build while adding value to the

property.

KTM Builders Limited specialise in home

improvements. With over sixteen years’

residential building experience, owner and

operator of the company, Keith Moore has

considerable knowledge in the industry.

Keith has completed many renovations,

transforming older houses into modern,

functional homes. He has lots of ideas and

can suggest ways to make the most of your

floor area, where best to extend, how rooms

can be more functional, and how outdoor

areas can be transformed to appealing,

practical settings.

Keith builds decks, pergolas and walls

that add character while providing sun

shade and shelter from the wind.

Whether taking out or moving a wall;

building a new kitchen or extending a

bedroom or lounge; or updating a kitchen

or bathroom, Keith can do the job. He has

renovated many little rooms and kitchens,

working with designers, directing clients to

affordable kitchen manufacturers, or taking

care of the whole job himself.

As a licensed building practitioner and

Site Safe trained registered builder, Keith

will manage each stage of a project or work

with an appointed project consultant.

KTM Builders Limited is a one-stop

build shop, from the carpentry work to

the plastering, painting, fitting of showers

and laying of tiles. Less sub-contractors

on the job translates to a faster completion

while their own electrical and plumbing

contractors will be on the job in a timely

manner.

Keith and wife, Trish are also active

community members having trained four

young apprentices in the district who

are now carpenters and assisting and

sponsoring Southbridge’s Under-Sevens

rugby team.

If you want advice on how to transform

your home or a competitive quote, give

Keith a call on: 027 274 9359, or email:

ktmbuilders@xtra.co.nz. You might also

HOME PROFESSIONALS

Create your own

amazing

outdoor space

Amazing outdoor spaces are possible

with any section size and The Outdoor

Space team have constructed some great

features.

These include a Schist stone gateway

and entrance pillars, with decking

that modernised an older home, and

constructing decks and pergolas, some with

a roof to keep the weather out. One pergola

was an extension of a carport that doubled

as a covered barbeque area, effectively

extending the outdoor living space on a

smaller block of land.

“We work with a variety of mediums

including stone, bricks and timber, as

well as completing soft landscaping, from

laying lawns to planting out,” advises Aaron

Bartlett who with wife, Vicky owns and

operates The Outdoor Space.

Aaron prefers chunky Macrocarpa for

pergolas as it holds its shape better than

pine. He says that laminate timber also

works well. It looks good stained or has

a fresh look when painted to match the

house colours.

Aaron says Kwila timber decks are very

popular, with stainless steel screws used

to fix the planks for a better finish. They

have also constructed Kwila planter boxes

around several decks, some with seating on

the top.

A couple of interesting creations by The

Outdoor Space have been a recycled red

brick wall and a fence from an old house

wall that incorporated a rustic window.

“I really enjoy creating unique and

interesting structures,” says Aaron.

He likes to sit down with clients to discuss

options for their outdoors, bringing their

dreams and ideas to reality; completing

part of all of job to a client’s budget and

timeline, even if it means popping back

when required, until the landscaping vision

is complete.

With lawn sowing season over until

spring, the team are available to lay ready

lawn for those wanting to avoid the

mud over the cooler months. If wanting

assistance with a seeded lawn in spring,

now is also the time to book in, so The

Outdoor Space will have it ready to walk on

by Christmas.

To talk landscaping and for a free quote,

REAA - Understanding real estate jargon

Every industry is full of jargon and

buzzwords that make no sense to anyone

who’s not part of the club. Real estate is no

different, which means it can be hard to get

up to speed. Here’s a handy guide to some

of the most common terms you’ll come

across when buying or selling property.

Agency agreement: If you are using

a licensed real estate agent to sell your

property, you’ll need to sign one of these

agreements - it sets out what the agent will

do and what they will be paid. Remember

you can negotiate the conditions, such as

who pays for marketing and how much

the commission is. Make sure you get

legal advice before you sign, because it’s a

binding document.

BEO or BBO: This stands for ‘Buyer

Enquiry Over’ or ‘Buyer Budget Over’,

which means that price listed on the

advertisement indicates the minimum that

the seller will accept. The seller actually

needs to give serious consideration to any

offer over the BEO, so this figure needs to

be selected carefully.

Deadline Sale or Deadline Private

Treaty: In this kind of sale, a property

is marketed for a set period (with an

advertised end date). The seller can choose

to accept an offer at any stage during the

listing period though it may be stated

in the advertising that ‘no offer will be

accepted prior’. Check the fine print.

LIM: This stands for Land Information

Memorandum, which contains everything

that the local council knows about the

property, such as any issues with drainage

and plumbing, erosion or permits. It will

help you identify if any additions haven’t

got the right consent. A LIM will also

record any unpaid rates.

Sale and purchase agreement: This

is a legally binding contract between

the buyer and seller for the purchase/

sale of a property. It provides certainty

to both parties and it sets out in writing

all the agreed terms and conditions. It’s

essential to get legal advice before you

sign an agreement – and that you read and

understand what it means.

Settlement: This is the end goal in a

property transaction, when the sale and

purchase is completed by the exchange of

property and payment. Settlement occurs

when the seller receives the money for the

sale – the buyer will not receive the keys

until this happens.

RV: This stands for ‘Rateable Value’ – this

is a value used to calculate local body rates.

It should not be assumed to be a market

value for a property when it is for sale as

the rating valuation may be a number of

years old. It is also not responsive to local

market fluctuations and may not reflect

any recent renovations to a property. This

was formerly known as ‘Government

Value’, or GV.

Tender: If a property is for sale by

tender, prospective buyers must submit

confidential written offers by a set date.

Usually there is no minimum price, but

properties are often listed with a BEO or

BBO price. The seller can then choose the

offer that is most acceptable to them, based

on the price and any attached conditions.

The most attractive tender is likely to be

one that combines a good price with few

conditions. Sellers are allowed to negotiate

with any one or more of the tenderers

received after tenders close.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Garages are not all equal

Not all garages are equal. Smaller

townhouses may have a single garage

whereas larger homes are more likely

to have double, triple or even four-car

garaging.

Having more garaging has been more

popular in recent times. It can add an ‘x’

factor leading to a speedier house sale and

potential for a higher selling price.

However, how much garage space do

you really need?

Before committing to an even larger

home, take time to consider the purpose of

your garage. This may avoid the situation

where one or more vehicles is parked up in

the driveway due to there being no room

in the garage after work bench, garden

equipment, bicycles and other items are

packed in.

An outside shed may take out some

clutter, as will moving on unused

possessions, with the result that a standard

double garage may be sufficient.

While a larger garage will add square

metres, extra garage space costs less than

in other areas of a home because there are

fewer features.

At planning stage, map out what will

be stored in the garage. Take account

of the space needed for motor vehicles,

bikes, work bench, tools and gardening

implements, if these will be kept in the

garage.

List all the items, measuring each to

assess how they will fit into the garage.

Allow space for moving around and

getting into and out of the cars parked in

the garage, once bikes, ladders and the like

are stacked against the walls.

Attic trusses with a pull down ladder

could be included; a great way to gain

extra storage space for less used items.

Other features that will reduce clutter

may include built-in shelving and

storage cupboards, hanging devices like

hammocks suspended from the roof,

and bike hooks. These can make a huge

difference to the spaciousness of this very

practical part of the house.

Thinking of the garage doors themselves,

these can be custom made to fit. While

two or three single doors may be attractive

for accessing a larger garage, weigh up

garage door width and their practicality

should a larger vehicle need to be stored in

the garage at any time.

Including one or more windows will

allow natural light without the need to

open the garage door. The glass can be

frosted for privacy while a glass side

or back door will provide access to the

backyard. You might also include a

garage door through to the backyard.

Alternatively, a garage, carport, or parking

space down the side may provide storage

for a caravan, motorhome or boat and

access the yard.

Ensuring sufficient off-street parking

space out front is also often overlooked

and worth the investment.

Single doors into a larger garage are popular.

Three and four car garaging is popular.

Garage doors can be

custom made to fit a

particular space.

Extra garage space

costs less than other

parts of a home.

Buying a property at auction

If you’re keen on a property that’s going

to auction, preparation is everything. A

successful bid means you are immediately

committed to buy the property; you cannot

seek legal advice, arrange finance or even

get the property valued or inspected when

the auction is over.

That means you need to do all your due

diligence in advance of auction day. Before

the auction (usually after you’ve viewed the

property), the real estate agent working for

the seller should provide you with a copy

of the terms and Contract of Sale, which

sets out what chattels will be included with

the property. This document will also tell

you the amount of the deposit to be paid

by the successful bidder, and when the

balance of the payment must be made.

These documents should be checked by

your lawyer.

You should consider having the property

checked (preferably by a qualified inspector

who has professional indemnity insurance

and carries out their work in accordance

with the New Zealand Property Inspection

Standards and obtain an up-to-date Land

Information Memorandum (LIM) from

the local council. It’s a good idea to get a

valuation of the property, especially as

you are likely to require one if you need a

loan. Some websites provide free estimated

market values that may be useful.

There’s a lot to take in at an auction and

it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. If you can,

go along to one as an observer to see how

the process works before you actually want

to buy. Remember that the auctioneer is

working for the seller and they want to get

the highest price possible for the property.

At an auction, the auctioneer will read the terms and

conditions of the sale aloud and announce if a reserve

price has been set. They must also state whether the seller

has reserved the right to bid during the auction. This is

called ‘vendor bidding’ and it is only allowed under strict

circumstances, such as when the property being auctioned

has a reserve price; when the reserve price has not yet been

met; and the auctioneer has made it clear that the bid being

made is a vendor bid. They must do this by saying, ‘this is a

vendor bid’ rather than using any jargon.

Auctioneers sometimes use vendor bids as a way to

start off the bidding, or to move the bidding towards the

reserve price. Vendor bids can be made by the auctioneer,

or another person working on behalf of

the seller, such as a real estate agent. An

auctioneer can also use a pre-auction offer

to start the bidding.

The auction continues until there is only

one bidder left. At that stage, if the reserve

price is reached or beaten, the highest

bidder will be the successful buyer. If the

reserve price isn’t reached, the seller can tell

the auctioneer to stop the auction without

selling the property.

If the auction is stopped without a sale, the

highest bidder may have the opportunity to

negotiate with the seller (via their agent)

after the auction. If this happens, the terms

and conditions of the auction no longer

apply and you can negotiate new ones.

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you ;will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get

a good idea of pricing, discover good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long-term returns.
