Earthquake Commission

does U-turn over well repair

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LIFESTYLE BLOCK owner

Brent Norton has won a

battle with the Earthquake

Commission over his liquefacted

well.

EQC has done a U-turn on

Mr Norton’s claim to pay for

the damage to the well on his

property near Tai Tapu after

the Ombudsman’s Office began

investigating.

The damage was caused in the

February 22, 2011, quake.

EQC declined Mr Norton’s

insurance claim.

Mr Norton believes there

could be other landowners like

him in the same position.

The domestic well, the

only source of water for this

home, became blocked with

liquefaction during the quake.

Demands on the well were

minimal because his new home

and property had not yet had

established gardens and lawns.

But during the summer of

2011/2012 when the gardens and

lawns needed watering the well

ran dry after about an hour.

Mr Norton incorrectly

assumed this was because of a

limitation to the aquifer.

By summer of 2014 the well

would run dry if two showers

ran simultaneously and it

Commission initially refused to do so.

completely failed in 2015.

The company which installed

the well was called out to repair

it. It cost $1127.

They said the well should have

been operating fully.

Damage to the well because of

the liquefaction was not included

in the EQC scope of works

when they assessed Mr Norton’s

property after the quake.

After the well was repaired Mr

Norton sent the invoice to EQC

for reimbursement.

EQC would not pay on

the basis it did not cover the

water flow or quality of the

water.

The decision said: “EQC

will cover the well structure

if damaged but not the water

quality. The well in this case has

not suffered any damage”.

It said the water quality does

not seem to be a direct result but

a gradual build-up of silt over a

period of time and therefore is

not covered by EQC.

Mr Norton appealed the

decision to the Ombudsman.

The Ombudsman informed

EQC it was investigating which

has now resulted in the U-turn.

The Ombudsman was advised

by EQC it accepts that the

blockage to the bore screen

by liquefaction represents

earthquake damage and the

work required to clean the screen

constitutes repair work.

Mr Norton said it was a major

back-down from EQC after what

they had been saying for many

years.

“They have come up with

so much bulls***t all the way

through to avoid paying what

they should have paid to start

with,” he said.

Mr Norton said the outcome

of the investigation should

set a precedence for people

experiencing similar insurance

issues with EQC.

“The thing that bugs me is

there is no consequence for

them that I had to pay a

number of years ago,” Mr

Norton said.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

EARLIER THIS year it was Mi-Sex

and Dragon.

In 2018, Jimmy Barnes will be

making his way to Lincoln for the

second Selwyn Sounds rock festival

(see page 7).

This year’s event was a great

success, apart from a few teething

problems which I’m sure will be

ironed out.

The all-day festival will also

feature The Feelers, Mental As

Anything, Stellar, The Mockers,

The Narcs, The Lady Killers and

The Warratahs.

That’s a fairly impressive line-up;

on a par or even better than this

year.

As local lad and festival promoter

David Parlane says: “We

couldn’t do the same as what we

did this year, we had to do something

a little different and make it

bigger and better.”

Sounds good to me.

these shores, this Land

Brent ForBes - In my previous works the landscape has

been used to observe the time of day, the seasons passing, maybe

(but not often) a particular place – however these works are not any

of those things. Looking at these works as a whole, I see the main

preoccupation has been water, and where the land meets it. The

landscape, although more modelled and distinct in terms of handling,

is not the main motivation – just as important is the inescapable fact

of the ocean.

Making these works was more about the process than before, sticking

pieces on, seeing what opportunities were created, adjusting, rearranging...

it was about not having a set finish in mind, just responding

to what the works needed. In this way I think of these works as more

universal and about painting rather than simply “landscape paintings”.

Search for missing gates

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE OWNER of a Tai Tapu

furniture shop has described the

theft of its set of distinctive gates

as a “very brazen act.”

Last Monday night Obelisk

furniture store situated on the

Christchurch Akaroa Rd had its

gates covering a 6m-wide opening

to the business stolen.

Owner Debbie

Horton

(left) said the

gates, imported

from India,

were made of

extremely heavy

solid steel and

would have

needed to be unbolted before

they were removed.

“Somebody knew what they

were doing which is a little bit

concerning . . . they couldn’t be

lifted up and taken off,” she said.

Mrs Horton has contacted

both the Scrap Metal Recycling

Association of New Zealand,

New Zealand Post and the police

but have had no luck in finding

where the gates are.

“There was a lot of scraping

heard down the road and a lot of

noises at around 10pm Monday

night . . . as you can understand

neighbours didn’t go out and

look any further,” she said.

Sergeant Alex Pickover said

police are following up on the

case but there was no CCTV

footage available to help it determine

who stole the gates.

Tai Tapu Community Association

Committee chairman

Gerald Carter said he had

shared the missing gates on the

Tai Tapu Community Facebook

page but had no feedback.

“You would have thought

someone would have seen something,”

he said.

about the taking of the gates or

their current location is asked to

David Ward, chief

executive, Selwyn District

Council, responds to a

Selwyn Times article from

May 30

THe article – Rate increase to

manage stormwater – contains

incorrect and misleading

information

The story states “Residents

can expect a rate increase of

$85 per property in areas where

the district council manages

stormwater.”

This is incorrect. The $85

referred to is the total rate per

property, not the increase. For

some households the rate will

increase, but for others it will

decrease or stay the same.

The planned new standard

stormwater rate of $85 per

property, to be introduced

from July 1 2017, will replace

existing stormwater rates

which vary by township.

For example, in the current

year (July 1, 2016 to June 30,

2017) in Leeston the rate is

$278, in Lincoln it is $85, in

Rolleston it is $40. Under the

previous system stormwater

rates were based on the costs

in each township so varied

significantly – for example the

rate has been high in Leeston

as a major stormwater upgrade

is underway. Under the new

system the costs of managing

stormwater across the district

are recovered through the

standard $85 rate charged to

households in townships where

the Council manages stormwater.

Many townships such as

Leeston will pay less for a

stormwater while other areas

may pay more.

This proposed change was

consulted on through the Draft

Annual Plan process.

Overall, more people indicated

they supported the move to

a new standard rate in online

survey comments and submissions

than the alternative to

stay with the current charge

which varies by township.

Maddie to get treatment in US

• By Gabrielle Stuart

MADDIE COLLINS has spent

most of her life battling kidney

failure – now the 13-year-old West

Melton resident has been dealt

another life-threatening blow.

She was told last week while at

Starship Hospital for kidney treatment

that her heart is also failing.

If Maddie had a successful

kidney transplant, her heart could

recover, but without one, she

would be at risk of a heart attack,

her mother Sarah Manson Collins

said.

The news had hit Maddie and

the whole family hard, she said.

“She was in the room when they

told us and she said, ‘okay, how

many months have I got to live?’

We said, ‘no, it’s not like that,

you’re going to be okay,’” she said.

Kidney problems can force the

heart to pump harder, putting a lot

of strain on it. An American study

has found children on dialysis for

kidney problems were 1000 times

more likely to have a fatal heart

attack.

The family has been fundraising

to take Maddie to The John Hopkins

Hospital in Baltimore, United

States, next month where more

advanced treatment may make it

easier to match a donated kidney.

In 2012, her father, Adam Collins,

donated one of his kidneys to Maddie,

but her body rejected it.

“We know we’re fighting uphill

to find a match for Maddie, but

you’ve got to believe in miracles,”

Mrs Manson Collins said.

The treatment offered in the

United States would make it less

likely Maddie’s body would reject a

donated kidney.

However, it comes at a price –

the full treatment is expected to

cost about $350,000.

Givealittle pages have already

raised more than $80,000 for Maddie,

and people in the community

had also been incredibly generous,

Mrs Manson Collins said.

Many people, from family

members to total strangers, had

also volunteered to be tested to see

if their kidneys might be a match

for Maddie.

She had no idea how many,

as the family were not allowed

to know unless a match was found.

But even though none so far had

matched Maddie, Mrs Manson

Collins said every person willing

to donate an organ had helped

someone.

“It’s not just about Maddie. We

don’t have enough organ donors

and that’s what this is about, so if I

can make more people talk about

organ donations I’ll have succeeded,”

she said.

She said Maddie had been

finding things tough, as her treatment

meant she missed a lot at

her school and couldn’t do many

things with her friends.

“People say she looks so well, she

looks so healthy, but you don’t see

kidney failure until you lift up her

shirt and see all those lines in her

body,” she said.

But she said Maddie’s love for

animals, the people around her

and her passion for life kept her

strong.

“Maddie is incredible. When

she gets on her pony everything is

right for her, even though I know

how much energy it takes her to

ride. Her inner strength puts some

of us to shame sometimes,” she

said.

•Maddie’s givealittle page is

www.givealittle.co.nz/cause/

givethegiftoflifetomaddie

HOPEFUL: Maddie Collins and her mum Sarah Manson

Collins learned last week that Maddie’s kidney disease has

caused early stage heart failure – but they are hopeful she

will recover with quick treatment.

Barnes to head Lincoln rock event

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

AN AUSTRALIAN rock icon is

set to step foot onto the Lincoln

Domain for one of the biggest

musical festivals in Selwyn next

year.

The Selwyn Sounds concert is

back with Jimmy Barnes to headline

the rock concert, along with

an iconic line-up of Australasian

groups. It will be held on March 3.

Barnes will be joined by The

Feelers, Mental as Anything, Stellar,

The Mockers, The Narcs, The

Lady Killers and The Warratahs.

Organiser and Lincoln resident

David Parlane said the line-up is

sensational and he is excited to

have secured a class act such as

Barnes to headline the show.

“We couldn’t do the same as

what we did this year, we had to

do something a little different and

make it bigger and better . . . this

year has got a little bit more of a

feel for everybody,” he said.

It was estimated more than 7500

packed into Lincoln Domain for

the inaugural concert in March.

Mr Parlane said the organisers

had learnt from the last event and

will be looking to have more Portaloos

and designated areas to distinguish

between male and female.

He said entry to the concert was

a learning curve and there will

now be designated lines for people

taking chilly bins and express lines

TALENT: Jimmy Barnes (above) will join The Feelers (top), Mental

as Anything (middle) and The Mockers for next year’s Selwyn

Sounds.

for those with only tickets to enter

the show.

“The area that was slowing us

down was people bringing in their

chilly bins and food,” he said.

District councillor Pat McEvedy

said he thought Mr Parlane and

his organisers did a fantastic job in

March and it was great to see that

sort of innovation in Selwyn.

He said he will definitely be at

the concert next year.

will be made available on

TOGETHER: The students formed the word pink to mark Pink Shirt Day.

Ellesmere students take stand

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ELLESMERE College students

have been pledging their

support to stand together

against bullying.

The school took part in the

Mental Health Foundation’s

nationwide Pink Shirt Day to

stop bullying recently.

In the week leading up to

the event, the year 12 health

class decided to set up their

own photo booth where

students gave their support

against bullying and promoted

the day.

The photo booth

complemented the “pink

promotes positivity” slogan

students had come up with for

the day.

The school’s social prefects

played the film A Girl Like

Her to help other students

understand bullying.

Throughout the day,

students wore pink and

purchased candyfloss to show

their support for spreading

positivity and taking a stand

against bullying.

Administration support

teacher Lindsay Cook said the

health class wanted students at

the school to feel comfortable

with themselves regardless of

their age, sex, gender identity,

sexual orientation, ability or

cultural background.

“I think it goes without

saying that we all want to feel

safe, valued and respected

wherever we go – school, work,

home or in the community.

This was the aim of Pink Shirt

Day,” Mr Cook said.

He said Ellesmere College

has zero tolerance towards

bullying and the event has

been helpful in achieving this

goal.

Foundation to encourage

people to take action and

stop bullying.

The point of the friendship

seat was that when

children had no-one to

play with at lunchtime,

they can sit on the seat and

someone will come over

and invite them to join in

the games.

The seat will promote

friendship and kindness in

the pupils and help build a

sense of community.

Promotions and marketing

officer Rita Spadoni

said the seat aims to prevent

bullying before it

becomes a problem.

“It is hoped children will

approach the one in the

seat, make sure he or she

is all right and ask them to

play,” she said.

IT HAS been an exciting

term so far for pupils at

Rolleston Primary School.

A pirate-themed book

school term, with pupils

dressing up and celebrating

their love of reading

together.

The week gave pupils

of different ages the opportunity

to work together

in different classrooms

throughout the school.

Zack Sewell, who has an

interest in building, was

also celebrated at a recent

to the opening of 12 new

learning spaces for its

pupils) in August.

Year 8 teacher Deepa

Young dancers Disneyland-bound

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

STEPPING OUT onto a stage

in the heart of Disneyland is no

more than a fantasy for most

young dance hopefuls.

But the dream has become a

reality for 15 promising dancers

at the Selwyn School of Dance.

The dancers will travel to Los

Angeles in July next year not

only to perform on the stage at

Disneyland Resort but on Hollywood

Boulevard.

The pupils were selected to

join an array of dancers from all

over schools all lover Australasia

after sending an audition tape

to company World Class Dance

Tours.

They will spend two weeks in

Los Angeles taking dance classes

at some of the top dance studios

in the city including Millennium

Dance Complex.

Each student will need $6000

to travel overseas and the school

will hold a fundraising concert

closer to the time.

The creative mind behind

choreographing the team dance

for the student’s big moment in

Disneyland is the school’s artistic

director Emma Body.

Mrs Body said the students

are excited by the opportunity

and she along with several other

teachers at the school will be

EXCITED: Emma Body and some of the dancers who will perform in Los Angeles. Back row (left

Eatherley.

looking to put together a 30min

dance piece.

“I know a lot of kids are keen

on doing stuff from film La La

Land . . . generally it will be

something pretty upbeat,” she

said.

Mrs Body, of Rolleston had

bright beginnings to the dancing

world when she was a child,

making the cut for the Royal

New Zealand Ballet.

“In those days they came and

auditioned everybody. It was a

bit bigger deal than these days.

They tend to just pick the people

who fit the costumes,” she said.

Growing up in Nelson, Mrs

Body trained under Gillian

Francis before she moved to

study Otago University and took

an interest in contemporary

dance while there.

She then danced and taught

with Canterbury Ballet before

she had two children and set up

her own school in 2007.

“It is really cute, my eldest

daughter when she was four she

was at a pre-school in Rolleston

and must have told one of the

teachers there “mummy was a

dancer” and they approached me

about taking some pre-school

classes,” Mrs Body said.

When her pre-school pupils

reached school-age Mrs Body

decided to set up her own school

to give dancers in Selwyn an

option.

Her own school now has

more than 200 dancers with

one travelling from as far as the

Heathcote Valley to train.

Dreaming up a mega Disneyland

dance routine is not the

only showpiece Mrs Body has on

the go with her ballet pupils set

to perform the Coppélia ballet

at Middleton Grange School on

June 24.

The comic ballet show brings

back fond memories for Mrs

Body who danced as a child in

the Coppelia’s Waltz of the Hours

for the Royal New Zealand Ballet.

Wanting only the best for her

students, Mrs Body is a “sucker

for punishment” making about

50 tutus from scratch for the

dancers in the show with her

mother Jeannie Stewart.

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Falcon’s Landing soars in Rolleston

Falcon’s Landing is a new

quality residential subdivision

that has just been unveiled in the

go-ahead town of Rolleston.

The project is the work of

locally owned and operated

Gillman Wheelans, an established

developer renowned for its

successful subdivisions including

popular Levi Park, also in

Rolleston, developed in 2013.

With around 600 residentially

zoned sections ranging from

450sq m-1000sq m and section

prices starting at $160,000, the

key focus here is variety, point of

difference and space.

Gillman Wheelans director

Hamish Wheelans says there are

options for positions, locations

and outlooks to suit every new

home owner.

“Building in Rolleston is such

a fantastic option for families

looking for a community focused

lifestyle. House prices remain

high in Christchurch but here at

Falcon’s Landing, you can have a

quality, affordable new home on

a 600-700sq m section. It’s great

value and with the upgraded motorways

under construction, the

commute to various destinations

is becoming much faster, and will

continue to improve further.”

Situated off Lincoln Rolleston

Road, the existing Branthwaite

Drive low density area will

become the central arc of

Falcon’s Landing, allowing a

panoramic drive streaming off to

family friendly cul-de-sacs and

quiet comforting streets. Reserves

located throughout Falcon’s

Landing will include existing

established trees helping to blend

the old with the new. A lovely

hazelnut orchard will remain

in part and an edible garden

established to complement the

grove.

Construction is due to start in

September and Hamish envisages

Existing mature trees will be included

in the overall design.

the first of the titles will be

through towards the end of 2018.

This first release will consist of

120 sections and will feature

eight show homes that will be

open late next year.

“People are always curious

about the origin of names for

new subdivisions. A Falcon’s

formidable hunting ability is

largely due to their highlydeveloped

eye site. This is

perfect for Gillman Wheelans

as we have the eye for detail

when it comes to subdivision

development and so we’ve

named our newest Rolleston

development Falcon’s Landing.”

A reputation for excellence

Gillman Wheelans, which is developing

Falcon’s Landing, has built

up a reputation for excellence over

the past 15 years in quality successful

residential subdivisions.

The company is careful to identify

prime land in highly sought-after

areas such as the award-winning

Preston Downs and Wilfield in West

Melton, Levi Park in Rolleston and

The Woods in Prebbleton among

its lengthy list of Selwyn developments.

With its hallmark eye for detail,

Gillman Wheelans always seeks to

embrace the natural feel of the land,

says director Hamish Wheelans.

“We enhance the look of the

areas we develop and we believe in

the New Zealand lifestyle, which

includes rustic space and rich green

countryside. Recreational areas are

also a focus for us and, like many

of our other developments, Falcon’s

Landing will have its trademark

tennis court, basketball hoop,

playground and walking tracks.

We’re not trying to bring the city to

the country, but instead give people

the best of both worlds in their own

community.

“The experience and knowledge

we’ve gained over that time means

we really understand what is important

to people and how they want

to live. Good amenities are crucial

– and not just proximity to shops

and schools – but today there’s a

much greater emphasis on green and

recreational spaces,” Hamish says.

Landscaped playground at Gillman Wheelans development at

Wilfield in West Melton.

Rolleston reaps benefits of planning for the future

Rolleston is one of the fastest

growing towns in New Zealand,

largely due to its forward planning

and additions in infrastructure,

commercial and community

projects.

Until 1990 the town had only a

few sealed streets and a population

of just under 1000. Today it has

mushroomed to 15,000. Conservative

estimates suggest it will hit

19,000 within 10 years. The current

expansion began in the 1990s and

was significantly boosted by people

relocating post earthquake.

Today its economy is booming

and families are flocking to the

flourishing town. New secondary

school, Rolleston College, opened

its doors in February, initially to

223 Year 9 students only, and will

add year levels as students move

through. Six years ago, Rolleston

had one primary school; now the

Ministry of Education has added

another three primaries, with a

fifth, Lemonwood Grove, opened

at the start of this year.

Rolleston is home to two South

Island inland ports. Carter Group is

developing I Port, a $500 million

industrial and logistics park on 122

hectares. Stage 1 of the development

saw the sale of 27 hectares

to Lyttelton Port of Christchurch

to develop an inland port. Next

door at Izone is Port of Tauranga’s

inland port covering 15 hectares.

These two expansive industrial

subdivisions have positioned

Rolleston as a significant regional

hub for exporting, importing,

logistics, industrial and agricultural

businesses.

Meanwhile, large format

retailers such as The Warehouse,

Warehouse Stationery and Noel

Leeming are establishing, providing

employment opportunities

within the community.

On the recreational and cultural

arena, the new district library and

community facility are designed to

host a variety of events and activities,

putting emphasis on learning,

technology and community.

Foster Park is Rolleston’s largest

reserve with 11 sports fields, shared

walking and cycling paths and are

planning for a large children’s playground

and indoor sports complex.

This area has become a central hub

for weekend sport and families

within the community.

Nearby is the Selwyn Aquatic

Centre, which was completed only

a few years ago and is already in

line for an expansion to suit the

growing population.

neighbourhood

Portrayal earns Darfield HS award

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE OFTEN tragic aftermath

of drink-driving has been

portrayed in a performance at

the 2017 Stage Challenge & J

Darfield High School was

awarded second place in the

five other awards.

THe competition was held at

Horncastle Arena recently.

Darfield High School’s

performance was titled Could

You Live With It?

Year 13 student and head of

stage challenge Jade Collier said

it was about showing what it is

like when a driver is responsible

for taking other people’s lives

and what the driver has to live

with.

The idea was inspired from

discussions in the media about

drivers carrying passengers on a

restricted licence.

“We still can’t get over that we

got second place as there was so

many amazing performances

on the night, we are so proud of

everyone’s efforts,” Jade said.

Lincoln High School also won

Year 11 student leader Jessica

McMillan said she was thrilled,

the cast gave it everything and

received so many awards.

for the first time this year with

only year 9 students, won two

awards for their performance on

Learning leader of the arts

Merrin Diack said her students

were outstanding and it was a

big experience for the students

said.

SELWYN TIMES

Are you ready

for snow?

June marks the official start of winter and this brings the risk of snow.

Snow is common in Selwyn during winter and has the potential to cut off power and telephone

services and close roads.

Selwyn District Council Emergency Manager Officer Ryan O’Rourke says that now that winter is

here, it is important for people to ensure their household is well prepared to cope with snow. “The

further away from a main town you live, the better your preparations need to be as you could be

housebound for several days until roads can be cleared and power restored. However a large

snowstorm could cut power to main towns like Rolleston, Lincoln and the surrounding areas so

everyone needs to be ready to cope with that situation.”

To prepare your household for snow you can take the following steps:

· have several days’ food and bottled water, medication and a first aid kit, a portable battery

operated radio, torch, matches, baby food and supplies, cutlery and can opener, and warm

clothing stored in a waterproof container

· have an alternative power source and another way of cooking food if the power fails

· if you have a fireplace, check you have several days’ supply of firewood or coal

· keep your vehicle fuel tank near full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines

· on the farm; plan where livestock can be moved to shelter and ensure there is enough dry feed.

Consider how you would supply stock water if the power is off. Most animal deaths in winter

storms are from dehydration

· register online to join Selwyn Gets Ready at www.selwyn.getsready.net. This free service will

send you severe weather warnings and emails or texts with updates in an emergency

· get to know your neighbours and find out whether they need assistance, or could help you, in an

emergency.

If a snow storm hits then:

· listen to your radio, or television, and visit the Council website, www.selwyn.govt.nz, for weather

reports and information

· ensure you drink enough water and watch for signs of frostbite or hypothermia. Wear layers of

loose, light, warm clothing

· keep rooms well ventilated when using gas or kerosene heaters to avoid toxic fumes building up

· bring pets inside and move stock to shelter

· report broken utility lines to Orion

· check on your neighbours and help them out if needed

· avoid driving unless absolutely necessary. If you have to travel take snow chains, warm clothing

and essential emergency items in case you become stuck

· if you are caught in your vehicle in a snowstorm, stay there and make yourself visible by tying a

bright-coloured cloth to your radio aerial and keep the inside light on.

On the roads this week

Maintenance repairs are planned on Gillanders, Hororata and Milnes Roads – the roads will remain

open with traffic controls in place. Footpath reconstruction is planned on Birchs Road in Lincoln.

Bridge reconstruction is planned on Jarvis Road. Footpath construction continues on Petticoat Lane in

Doyleston, Holley Street and Chervier Street in Leeston, and Hastings Street in Southbridge.

Works are planned along Springston Rolleston Road throughout June. The work involves seal widening on

the eastern side of the road to create a right turn bay onto Dynes Road and piping the water race along this

section of road underground. Traffic delays and reductions to one lane are possible while work occurs.

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.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension

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

next couple of weeks. The one-way system remains on Waterholes Road from Hamptons Road to 833

Waterholes Road running south towards Robinsons Road with detours in place, with changes to the

road alignment to allow for construction of the bridge. Please be alert to changes in traffic management,

follow the on-site signage and drive to the conditions.

Celebrate Matariki

Selwyn Libraries are celebrating Matariki – the Māori New Year with

free puppet shows for kids. Libraries will also be playing videos of

local people sharing Matariki stories on TV screens.

Matariki is the Māori name for the group of stars also known as the

Pleiades or the Seven Sisters which rise in late May or June. This

year it rises on 25 June.

Lincoln and Darfield will host Toro Pikopiko Puppets who will be

performing the world’s first Māori Rock-Art Puppet Production, Te

Rerenga – the Flight! This is a free 40-50 minute show, suitable for

all ages but created especially for children of primary school age.

Te Rerenga – the Flight is an acoustic rock musical, featuring 100

fabulous ‘Flatso’ puppets inspired from ancient cave drawings

made on limestone cliffs and caves around the Timaru area. This

fun production will take you back in time a thousand years with

a story about a group of rock art puppets who meet up with the

Bird Woman while she searches for her whanau. The shows are

on Tuesday 13 June at Lincoln Event Centre from 12–1pm and on

Friday 16 June at Darfield Library from 9.15–10.15am. Bookings are

not required to attend this free event.

Matariki stories that will be screened at the library include The little

Kiwi’s Matariki, Together in Love: A Legend of Matariki, The Seven

Kites of Matariki and Daniel’s Matariki Feast.

Last available lifestyle lots in

West Melton on offer

Wilfield’s residential lifestyle subdivison

in West Melton is in hot demand, with half

the sections now sold or under offer.

Wilfield is the last subdivision in West

Melton with allotments that are currently

titled and available.

Located on Weedons Ross Road and

south of West Coast Road, Wilfield

comprises 90 hectares of low-density

sections that range in size from 1200sq m

right through to four hectares. The average

size is tending towards 3000sq m and

comes with a price tag of $279,500.

A preschool is set to open at Wilfield

and the new West Melton Community and

Recreation Centre are earmarked for 2018.

The subdivision is being developed by

the Gillman Wheelans team, which has

been building residential subdivisions in

the greater Christchurch area for the past

15 years.

“We’re attracting a real cross-section of

people at Wilfield, which makes for a great

community,” director of Gillman Wheelans,

Hamish Wheelans says.

“Access to main arterial routes will be so

convenient when the work is completed

next year. This will see Weedons Ross

Road link through to the State Highway 1

interchange, close to Rolleston.”

Only 230 metres from the West Melton

township, Wilfield comprises 180 sections

and features reserve areas, a tennis court,

basketball hoop, and walking trails. The

jewel in the crown is a newly opened

playground complete with its own castle,

climbing equipment, swings, a slide and

flying fox.

To get there from Weedons Ross Road,

turn into the subdivision onto Kingsdowne

Drive, then veer right and take your second

left down Silver Peaks Drive. Follow your

nose to find the castle.

“We’ve worked really hard to ensure that

connectivity between public spaces, and

walkways through to the shops and the

nearby church, including negotiating and

building walkways across private properties

and pedestrian crossings across West Coast

Road,” Hamish says.

The Wilfield sales office is open every

Wednesday and Sunday, 1pm-3pm. If

you are coming from Christchurch on

West Coast Rd, there’s a big sign on your

left as you approach West Melton. Turn

left at Weedons Ross Road and you will

see the signage and flags. http://www.

yoursection.nz/wilfield-west-melton.html

Your home is your

castle. Now the kids

can have theirs too.

Our new playground, including a kids castle and flying fox, is fast

becoming a much-loved feature of Wilfield. You’ll love Wilfield too with

sections from 1,200m 2 to 4ha. call us on 03 741 1340 or email us at

enquiries@yoursection.nz anytime.

Backyard critters

Torpedo bug’s a pest

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

The green planthopper,

also known as the torpedo

bug, is a common pest of

the garden.

Siphanta acuta is the

scientific name given to

this 15mm long bug which

sucks the sap out of plants

and excretes unwanted

honeydew.

The sugary, bluishgreen

honeydew is

utilised by sooty mould,

which can turn leaves an

unsightly dark colour that

interferes with the plant’s

photosynthetic process.

ANNOYANCE: The green planthopper, also known

as the torpedo bug, is a common pest of the garden. ​

The bug is an Australian

species, and has green

upright wings that

resemble a thorn or small

leaf, which gives it great

camouflage.

It lays about 100 eggs

in a semi-circular raised

clutch that hatch in 10 to

20 days, depending on the

temperature.

The nymphs go through

five growth stages and

have a strange looking

tuft of white hair on their

bum.

Both nymphs and adults

jump when disturbed, and

the adults can fly a short

distance.

The adults live for about

60 days.

Kim’s

Fashion Quarterly

from Kim Taylor —Viva La Moda

Update your style

Fashion is constantly evolving and changing. We often see

customers who have favourite wardrobe items that when they go

to replace, have become difficult to find. While there has never

been such a variety on offer in the fashion world, trends do

change meaning your good old wardrobe staple has evolved

into something a little different.

With this in mind, the following are suggestions as to

how to move on to remain current in your look.

The traditional woman’s shirt with a collar is a

perfect example of this. Once upon a time this

style was everywhere and while there a few

on offer, the style has moved on to collarless

tops and blouses including Chinese collars or

scooped or v-necks.

We have pictured the Airlie shirt ($145.95) which

is a beautiful dressy version in black and gold

metallic.

There are several different jacket lengths

available in stores but the predominant style is

shorter which is flattering because it can add

some definition at the waist so flatters most

women. This style replaces the traditional mid

thigh length blazer which featured strongly in

the past.

We have showcased the stunning Airlie pink jacket ($189.95)

and the LA Coalition faux leather jacket ($199) in navy as

another example of this alternative to a traditional blazer.

These jackets are available in stone, taupe, brown, navy and

black and are hugely versatile as can be dressed up with

dresses and skirts or down with pants or jeans.

Leggings are another fashion item that has moved

on. The super stretchy knit leggings of the past

have evolved into slim leg pants. The look is

similar but just a little more tailored and much

more flattering.

We have pictured the Vassalli pull on pants with

funky crosses detailing which are ultra popular

because they are so warm, comfortable and

look great with longer tops and knits. They are

also an ideal leg width for wearing with ankle

boots ($119).

The humble cardigan is another favourite

for many. The more traditional shorter length

varieties have evolved into more relaxed

shaped wraps and longline cardigans.

These less structured shapes work well

with slim leg pants or pencil skirts. When

wearing fuller pants or more A-line skirts,

a short length jacket is probably a better

alternative.

We have pictured the beautiful reversible

Augustine wrap available in the pink and grey

colourway over a striped straight through dress. These

wraps are 100% merino and can be worn grey with pink

trim or reversed to be pink with grey trim. This look

is perfectly balanced when teamed up with short

or long winter boots ($249).

All of the styles pictured are available right now

at Viva La Moda so come on down and find

something to give your wardrobe

an update for winter.

LAwyERS

Spell-bound in Hobbiton

• By Mike Yardley

MATAMATA’S lush emerald

pastures and roly-poly hills are

happily home to Hobbiton, the

ultimate cinematic shrine for

set-jetters in New Zealand.

Like a third of all visitors,

I have never watched or read

an entire story or movie, from

either trilogy. But for starryeyed

Tolkien junkies, a journey

here has acquired the stature of

a pilgrimage.

To reach the movie set entails

a short drive by bus across the

Alexander family’s farmland

on a private sealed road, which

was built by the New Zealand

Army to service the convoy of

crew production vehicles and

equipment. Sir Peter Jackson

sweet-talked the then Prime

Minister, Helen Clark, to approve

the road’s construction.

Alighting from the bus, the

bright green grass is long and

lush as we trundle down the

muddy track to the first hobbit

house, where ‘the Hobbiton effect”

suddenly washes over me.

Unlike so many movie

locations, Hobbiton casts you

under its spell because it’s

exactly the same as it appears

on screen. It’s all so sweet and

tender, with washing hanging

REALISTIC: Hobbiton is exactly the same as it appears on screen.

on a line near a chimney poking

out of a grassy mound.

Baskets are plump with

pumpkins, while flowers and

herbs have been hung up to dry

by a round yellow door. As we

walked down a gravelled path,

some members of my group

frothed with delight, recognising

it as the spot where Frodo

Baggins greeted Gandalf at the

start of The Fellowship of the

Ring. And these tingly movie

moments just kept on coming,

as we strolled around the 44

hobbit houses that are strung

around the hillsides, fizzing

with excitement being photographed

outside Bag End or

sitting on the see-saw beneath

The Party Tree, where Bilbo

held his eleventy-first birthday.

I was fully submerged in the

fantasy-meets-reality world of

Middle Earth. It’s little wonder

that 450,000 visitors toured

the movie set, last year alone.

Winding our way around the

hills, the panoramic views

reach right across the lake to

the stone bridge, the watermill

and the Green Dragon Inn,

which looked like a life-sized

thatched cottage from my

grandmother’s Lilliput Lane

collection. •Turn to page 29

QUAINT: Fantasy meets reality at Middle Earth.

SNUG: Have an ale at the Green Dragon Inn.

Hobbiton casts you under a spell

•From page 27

Sir Peter Jackson’s art director,

Brian Massey, ensured everything

down to the mugs maintained

complete faith with how The

Green Dragon Inn was depicted

onscreen.

A triumph of expert craftsmanship,

it’s a charmingly snug and

toasty timbered environment,

and the crackling open fire was an

extra thrill to warm the cockles,

on a chilly April day. All the brews

are exclusively created by Good

George Brewing, in Frankton.

Maybe it was the ale, but as I

re-boarded the bus to depart, I felt

like I was stepping out of a movie.

It really doesn’t matter whether

you’re a film fanatic or not.

The movie set sits on 4.8ha of

land and my charming guide,

Kate, shared a constant flow of fascinating

bite-sized nuggets about

Hobbiton.

An over-riding theme is the

meticulous attention to detail

that Jackson demanded. All of the

farm’s livestock had to be removed

when shooting took place, because

they didn’t look English enough.

Suffolk sheep, notable for their

black faces and legs, were hauled

up from the South Island during

shooting.

Real apple and pear trees

were stripped of their and replaced

with plastic leaves and

plums, even though they only

featured for three seconds in the

movie.

A fake oak tree, created from

silicon, was dressed with 200,000

fake leaves. Jackson didn’t like

the colour of the leaves, so they

were all re-painted by hand, even

though the tree was only in shot

for 10 seconds.

Kate also revealed that moss

and lichen was liberally deployed

to give the movie-set’s fences a

weathered, old look. They created

fake moss and lichen by blending

woodchips, yoghurt and paint

together.

As they were during filming, the

vegetable patches are still filled

with super-sized plants so as the

hobbits would look smaller.

Technically, it is still an “active

set,” and a team from Weta visit

every six months to give it a touch

up.

The hanging clothes were deliberately

made to hang on the line

for up to two years, before being

replaced.

A full-time gardening team

work daily on maintaining the picturesque

appearance of the trees,

flowers and lawn.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

SELWYN TIMES

New Tuatara ATV scores high

on strength and safety

Innovation, simplicity and ingenuity are at

the fore with the side by side Tuatara 1100

ultra-terrain vehicle.

Unlike many ATVs that are based on fourwheel

motorcycle technology, the Tuatara

1100 is more like a Jeep in design and

appearance and able to be road registered.

“Quad bike accidents occur all too regularly,

with many operators killed or injured every

year. We wanted to design a safer vehicle that

would cope with New Zealand conditions,

from dusty dry to extreme cold and wet

weather; over any terrain whether rough,

pumice or sandy ground,” says Geoff Hill

who along with his partner Qingmei Pang,

set up Lifestyle Tractors & Machinery Ltd,

now trading as Tuatara Machinery Ltd.

‘Project Tuatara’ began three years ago.

After initially launching a two seat model

powered by a 600cc motorcycle engine,

Geoff and Qingmei decided to upgrade to a

three seat version powered by a much more

powerful 1100cc four cylinder Chery engine.

The result is an extremely quiet, reliable and

very fuel efficient engine.

Since its launch, modifications have been

made to improve the Tuatara with flexibility

of this kind only possible as it is Geoff and

Qingmei’s own brand.

“We’ve listened to our customers

and made modifications based

on their suggestions, making

the Tuatara as ‘bulletproof ’ as

possible,” advises Geoff who adds

that customer response has been

extremely positive, with people

being very impressed with what

they see.

“Hunters love these vehicles

because they can carry three

people and all of their gear, and

these machines will pretty much

go wherever they point them,” adds

Geoff.

“The Tuatara offers selectable

two-wheel and four-wheel drive,

and individually selectable front

and rear differential locking. This

allows the Tuatara to be comfortably driven

over rough, demanding country, even in

shallow snow.”

The Tuatara 1100 is certainly unique. Made

from steel and built on a ladder chassis, there

is virtually no plastic componentry so the

vehicle is robust and able to carry more than

its quad bike counterparts.

Safety has also been paramount in the

design. The Tuatara is fitted with a roll-over

Diesel Blower Heaters

• An industrial diesel powered blower heater, which

is ideal for warming a large area.

• Clean burning technology and diesel economy allow

it to operate for up to 14 hours on a single tank.

• Designed especially to keep operation noise to an

absolute minimum.

• Plug the heater into a standard three pin plug

power point and turn the thermostat to the desired

heat setting and the burner starts automatically

and will continue operation until it reaches

the preset heat setting, automatically turning

itself off and on as required to maintain the

temperature.

protection system (ROPS) with

rigidity that protects the driver

and passengers, is enhanced with

the placement of full, four-point

seatbelts for all passengers.

As farm vehicles must perform

in day-to-day conditions which

are extremely demanding on

machinery, durability was also

an aim in designing the Tuatara

1100. This is where Qingmei’s

engineering background came into

play with the result, a vehicle that is

capable of doing the job and lasting

the distance.

Another significant advantage of

the Tuatara is the lower servicing

costs that come about through

simplicity of design, ease of access

to all components and markedly

Farmer advisory panel to provide

feedback on genetic development

New Zealand Animal

Evaluation (NZAEL), a

subsidiary of DairyNZ,

has established a new

farmer advisory panel

to provide practical,

farmer based feedback

on animal evaluation

research, development,

and communication.

NZAEL manager Dr

Jeremy Bryant says it

is vitally important for

farmers to be involved

in genetic evaluation

development.

“The perspective and

experience of farmers is

invaluable when it comes

to enhancing the animal

evaluation system,” Dr

Bryant says.

The aim of the panel is to create a forum

for discussion between farmers, researchers

and the NZAEL team, and to assist NZAEL

in identifying practical issues that could be

implemented as part of the strategy.

“The six farmers on the panel have

farming businesses that are representative

of a range of New Zealand farming systems.

They are advocates of genetic improvement,

NZAEL manager

Dr Jeremy Bryant.

and will meet about five

times a year to give their

practical views on research

and development being

proposed or undertaken

by NZAEL and DairyNZ

researchers,” Dr Bryant

says.

There are currently two

key areas that the panel is

providing feedback on. The

first is a project focused on

reducing the ‘reproof bias’

in AE enrolled sires (read

more at dairynz.co.nz/

reproof) and the second is

a mid-term review of the

economic models that are

used to generate breeding

worth. The review will

commence in spring

2017, and the panel, along with other

stakeholders, will be involved in providing

views on the key focus areas.

DairyNZ strategy and investment leader

productivity Bruce Thorrold: “DairyNZ

invests a significant amount of farmers’

levy money in NZAEL each year, and

it’s critical we look to maximise value to

farmers – getting more direct farmer input

is one important way to do that.”

In addition to working closely with

the panel, NZAEL values feedback from

all New Zealand dairy farmers and will

continue to consult the industry on big

changes and developments via breeding

company meetings, user group meetings,

consulting officer networks, social media

and email newsletters which are produced

three times a year. User group meetings will

be held from time to time to communicate

major developments.

Gardening

The three pretty Ps

• By Henri Ham

WINTER HAS officially arrived.

But just because the days are

getting shorter and the weather is

getting colder it doesn’t mean the

colour in your garden has to be

the same.

There are several flowers that

thrive in cool conditions – and

all of them pack a punch when it

comes to colour. And, coincidentally,

all begin with P – polyanthus,

primula and pansy.

Here’s another P word for you

– popular. Polyanthus, primula

and pansies are the three most

popular flowers we sell at this

time of year. Probably one of the

main reasons they’re so popular,

is that they’re all easy to grow.

And it’s fair to say there is

a pansy colour or pattern for

everyone.

Now I’ve convinced you of the

benefits of growing one or more

of these pretty plants, you need to

work out where to grow them.

All three grow really well in

hanging baskets and pots. This is

good if you like to move the colour

around your home or garden.

If you do decide to pot your

plants, be sure to use a good potting

mix. This will ensure they

POPULAR: Pansy white

(above) and primularose have

strong contrast.

get a good start a good kick-start.

And wherever you plant them,

just make sure they get a bit of

sun.

Planting is easy, just dig a small

hole, put the seedling in and space

each one around 20cm from the

next.

You can expect these pretty

flowers to add colour to your winter

in around six to eight weeks.

If you want to encourage more

flowering, I encourage you to pick

off the dead flowers.

VIVID: Polyanthus packs a punch when it comes to colour.

June is the

time to plant

garlic

June is the time to plant garlic! The temperatures have dropped, and the shortest day is

near. The shortest day is a bit of an indication as to when to plant your garlic. Growing

garlic is pretty simple, it just needs some well-dug, fertile soil, and a sunny spot to grow

in. Once planted, it is pretty low maintenance, but very rewarding.

tips and tricks for growing garlic in garden beds:

Success for growing anything starts with the soil. Always replenish

vegetable beds with good compost and Intelligro sheep or chicken

pellets, these provide the prefect environment for all your veggies

to get growing, and maintain the growth for the season.

Big is best, so pick wisely

Split the garlic heads into individual cloves, no need to peel off

the white paper that surrounds each clove. It naturally protects

the bulbs in the soil, and then disintegrates once the plant

starts developing. Splitting up the heads of garlic can be done in

advance; it doesn’t have to be right at planting time.

Planting

Make a hole below the soil (5cm) and about 10cm apart. The

bright green shoots will appear in 4-6 weeks. Label the rows so

you don’t forget where you have planted it. A layer of mulch

around the rows once the shoots appear will help keep the area

weed free and retain moisture.

If you are planting in pots, our

potting mix is excellent for this,

and doesn’t require any extra

fertilisers are they are already in

the mix. Pop in and have a chat to

our team for

more advice

about garlic,

as well as

your other

gardening

queries.

Celery – good things take time

• By Henri Ham

LIKE MOST winter vegetables,

celery takes time to grow and

mature.

Maybe it’s cheaper and it’s

certainly easier to buy from the

supermarket. But as many of our

customers know, growing your

own vegetables is about more

than that.

Namely, knowing what’s gone

on to your food before you eat

it, and the sense of satisfaction

and enjoyment from growing it

yourself.

To grow great celery, the first

thing you need to do is prepare

your soil. Celery likes soil that’s

well- drained and sweet (and in

a full sun position), so make sure

you add lime before planting.

If you’re equipped to measure

PH levels, the reading should

be between five and six. Celery

also grows best in a garden that’s

raised and filled with potting mix

– so if you can make this combination

happen, you’re off to a

great start.

Once your soil’s ready purchase

your seedlings.

When you’re ready to plant,

dig a hole approximately 3cm

deep. Pop in your seedling and

use compost to create a mound

around the plant. This blanches

the base of the stems and keeps

them tender. The good news is

you don’t have to keep mounding

like you do with some plants –

just keep your celery watered and

that should do the trick.

Plant each seedling 20 to 25cm

apart and continue this process in

rows across your garden. Celery

grows best this way, making it a

good companion plant for dwarf

beans, carrots, spring onions,

parsley and bok choy. In fact, if

you have any of these in your garden

and they’re ready to harvest,

celery is the perfect replacement

plant.

Your plants will develop slowly

at first, but in about 12 to 14

weeks, your celery should be

ready to harvest. Here’s a tip –

slide your thumb down the inside

of the fattest stalks and gently

twist to pull them off the plant.

Don’t cut the stalks off as the

stumps left behind will rot and

hinder the health of the whole

plant.

You may notice the homegrown

version doesn’t look quite

as perfect as the supermarket

variety, but it will definitely taste

as good – probably even better

thanks to the knowledge that you

grew it yourself.

SUNNY: Plant celery 20 to 25cm

apart in rows across your garden.

Home-grown celery tastes as

good as what you can buy from

the supermarket.

Driven

MX-5 an example of advanced engineering

• By Ross Kiddie

“SAVE UP your money,’’ was the

advice from Masaya Kodama,

CX-5 project manager, Mazda

Motor Corporation, Japan.

I had asked Mr Kodama if a

new Mazda RX was likely given

the concept drawings of a new

sports car have been on show.

Mr Kodama said rotary engine

development was ongoing, and

from those comments I would

say a new RX is inevitable.

I’ve long considered Mazda’s

development of its rotary engine

to be one of the company’s finest

engineering achievements.

Although I’ve never had the

good fortune to own a rotary,

my son has a RX7 turbo and

occasionally I get to experience

the feel and performance of that

amazing sport coupe.

As history has served to prove,

Mazda has advanced engineering

techniques right through its

passenger vehicle line-up, and

just recently one of its other sport

models, the MX-5, was launched

in a new variation – that with a

folding convertible roof – made

of metal.

Of course, the soft-top MX-5, is

still available in four variants, and

the concept of a folding metal

roof isn’t new; targa tops, as they

have become commonly known,

have been around for many decades.

However, the point I’m

MAZDA MX-5 RFS: Convertible hardtop.

making is that the mechanism

which transforms this popular

sports car is another example of

Mazda’s engineering prowess.

The 13sec electric operation is

just sheer genius, it can also be

open and closed at speeds of up

to 10km/h and, for interest’s sake,

boot space remains the same for

all models.

The concept for which we like

MX-5 hasn’t been compromised,

it is still the cheeky, two-seater

which thrills with its chassis balance

and associated handling

prowess.

Whereas the soft-top is available

in both 1.5-litre and 2-litre

variants, the hard-top RF

(retractable fastback) is a 2-litre

car only, but there’s also a choice

of specification and gearbox. The

GSX sits at $48,495, a Limited

variant adds $3000 and $4500

(auto), while the test car was a

special launch edition model with

automatic transmission, it tops

the range at $54,995.

Before you jump to the conclusion

that the hard-top needs

the 2-litre engine because of

the metal structure’s increase in

weight, bear in mind that that

adds just 47kg into the car and

performance is far from compromised.

The acceleration times

between the two models are

much the same – 0-100km/h in

6.6sec and 7.2sec respectively.

Even though the 1998cc, twincamshaft

unit is built to Mazda’s

SkyActive efficiency and emission-friendly

parameters, it is still

a high performing engine with its

118kW and 200Nm ratings.

It works freely through the

six-speed automatic thanks to

low early gearing and a broad

top end gear to promote highway

economy.

• Price – Mazda MX-5 RFS,

$54,995

• Dimensions – Length,

3915mm; width, 1735mm;

height, 1235mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

rear-wheel-drive,

1998cc, 118kW, 200Nm,

six-speed manual

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.4sec

• Fuel usage – 7l/100km

Mazda claims a seven-litre per

100km (40mpg) combined cycle

fuel usage average, which sat well

with the 8l/100km (35mpg) figure

showing on the test car’s trip

computer when I took it back to

the dealership.

I’ve often been a bit critical of

the MX-5 and the sound that is

generated within the cockpit, history

has it that it has always been

a bit noisy. I guess performance

car buyers like that and they may

be disappointed in the hard-top

as it is far quieter and far more

to my liking; there is an angry

engine sound when it’s working

hard, but under normal conditions

the hard-top promotes a

quiet in-cabin environment and I

relate to that.

Not only is the engine a delight

in terms of flexibility and honesty,

the MX-5’s greatest virtue is

that of its feel-good factor. The

suspension and chassis engineering

is a marvel. Of course, drive

is sent to the rear wheels and that

promotes a pure handling sensation,

add in the fully involving

feel from the steering wheel and

the compliance within the spring

and damper rates and you have a

true sports car, one which delivers

the fun factor along with the

ability to conquer the most challenging

of corners.

Take into account, too, that the

tyres aren’t huge (205/45 x 17in),

there isn’t a lot of load put on

them, and with a height of just

1235mm there is little gravitational

force working against the

convertible in a quick corner, it

handles flat and controlled.

There’s some flexibility built

into the traction control system,

you can make it a little tail-happy

before the electronic devices

counteract oversteer, but that

doesn’t interrupt the fun. The

MX-5 in this form has lost none

of its playful character and that

is why it has been such a popular

car, it has been built with character

in mind and it doesn’t disappoint.

For someone whose old

joints don’t work quite as well as

they once did, I didn’t find entry

and exit into the test car onerous,

in fact I was finding excuses

to get in the vehicle and go for a

drive.

30 hours FREE ECE

Not only do children get a wonderful educational start at Giggles

and Scribbles, now it’s even easier on the pocket.

All children three years or older can now learn and play at the

childcare centre for up to 30 hours per week for free*.

“We understand that for some families money can be tight,

at Giggles and Scribbles we believe in equality of education -

giving all children more access to high quality early childhood

education” says Giggles and Scribbles director and owner

Sonya Cookeson.

“The centre has been open for over a year now and the

wonderful support that we have had from the local community

means that we are now in a position to give a little bit back”.

“We know how hard it can be for working families and It’s

always been important to me that all children have equal

access to a high quality early childhood education.”

At Giggles and Scribbles they believe that their job is not just to

prepare children intellectually for school but also, and perhaps

more importantly, to develop them emotionally and socially.

They aim to work alongside families to help develop and

instil solid moral values that will prepare children to be kind,

thoughtful and decent human beings.

problems. At Giggles and Scribbles

they incorporate learning into a fun and

interactive programme to keep children’s

attention and make learning memorable.

They also facilitate a highly acclaimed Transition to School

programme for children over 4 years of age. This programme

is run in house by primary trained teachers.

We need critical thinkers - children who can think outside of

the box. At Giggles and Scribbles they believe it’s important to

provide a balance of equipment and resources that challenge

the thought process of children. Some of the equipment and

resources have a specific and intentional outcome. Children

gain a sense of achievement and accomplishment from

completing the activity, progressing their learning forward.

n If your family would like to learn more about Giggles

and Scribbles or their FREE 30 hour ECE offer, then contact

Giggles and Scribbles on 03 325 3350.

*Some terms and conditions apply to the 30 hours free ECE offer, please

contact the centre for details.

Giggles and Scribbles philosophy focuses on providing

children with the skills and tools to play with and alongside

other children; to be able to make friends and retain them,

valuing the enrichment of friendships. They believe in the value

of teaching children to be kind, empathic and to have the ability

to self-regulate their emotions. Teachers focus on grace and

courtesy, role modelling, respect and good manners.

They weave values such as courage, perseverance,

independence and inclusiveness into their curriculum,

believing them to be as equally

important as providing a varied,

stimulating and well prepared

learning environment.

Great emphasis is placed on

grace and courtesy lessons,

as well as providing children

with the tools to be able to learn

important preparation for school

skills such as learning the

alphabet or solving basic math

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

Wait until you are in

in the Selwyn District

With the house design chosen and build

underway, it is really tempting to start

choosing brand new furniture for your

new home, placing items on order before

moving in.

Holding off until you are in is a really

good idea.

Often older furniture can look tired

in the setting of a brand new home yet

choosing new items before you are in and

have a true appreciation of the spatial

elements of the home, can be a mistake.

For starters, you might not have the

budget right at the end of the build for

splashing out on new lounge and bedroom

suites or other pieces for the home.

Secondly, there can be surprises as to what

will work and what definitely needs to go

on TradeMe or taken to the local op shop.

The old chest or armchair which

has been in the family for 100 years

may look great in the new house once

reconditioned with new stain or paint then

re-upholstered. Tired old chairs, settees or

ottomans can come to life when restored,

providing a comfy seat in the bedroom

or another corner of the house while also

bringing a touch of colour to an otherwise

neutrally toned décor. Bright paint

and stencilling can also be used to add

vibrancy to furniture for a child’s room.

Furnishing items may be given a totally

different purpose, adding character to a

hallway or bedroom. A variety of objects

can suffice as bedside cabinets created

from stools, drums or old suitcases once

destined for the dump or Sallies. Cushions

and throws will also spice up a bed and

take away from the nudity of a room that

still needs a little more furniture.

Fun wall hangings might be created by

covering a purchased canvas with some

bright and attractive fabric. You could also

create your own artwork or let the children

exhibit theirs. Bedheads might be made by

covering plywood with Dacron and fabric

while the odd feature wall will add a more

homely feel.

There are many great ways to spice up

a home and reduce the costs when funds

are tight after a build, and landscaping

expenses might be a priority.

Holding off will give you time to

decide on the furnishings that will work

best in the home in terms of look and

functionality. There is also the added

pleasure associated with acquiring

furniture and furnishings over time, rather

than having the retail satiation fix all in

one hit.

Holding off until you are

in is a really good idea.

You are in the market for a new

property, scrolling the Internet,

examining properties for sale and

zeroing in on those with potential. They

might be in locations that offer cheaper

land, larger houses, or convenience to

work or school.

You may have visited show homes

and open homes becoming confused,

overwhelmed or swept away with

emotional factors like having

everything new, or extra features such

as three car garaging.

To be happy with your choice, list the

features that you need, considering:

• Family space – Is there room for

the children to play indoors and for

television and entertainment units?

Should this be open plan or separated?

• Kitchen – What needs to be in

your kitchen? How serious are you

about a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim

or something that offers a practical

solution to the way you use your

kitchen?

• Bedroom sizes – What are optimum

sizes? Smaller bedrooms may translate

to slightly lower building costs while

extra space can be useful. When

looking at existing homes, consider

whether the size of each bedroom is

sufficient.

• Garaging – A standard double

garage once two cars are parked there

offers little space for the toys. What

toys do you have and could they live

with the lawnmower in a garden shed,

a cheaper option to three car garaging?

If the budget allows and a larger garage

with workshop is important, make it a

selection priority.

• Size of land – Lifestyle properties

offer space for children, pets, hobbies,

an expansive garden and perhaps a

home-run business but they require

work so are not for everyone and a

compact section might be more sensible

if a tight budget or busy lifestyle.

• Bathrooms – Second and third

bathrooms are great in homes with

teenagers and a wet shower room is

ideal for young children. A bath might

be fashionable though is often not used

and its absence could mean a more

spacious bathroom.

• Laundry – Would a laundry in the

garage do the job?

• Storage – How much storage do

you need? Weigh up what can truly be

stored in the garage once vehicles are

in, a preference in winter. Garages vary

in size so check the size to ensure your

vehicles will fit. Look also at where

else the house offers storage capacity

such as in hall cupboards, a large hot

water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes

(check their width and depth), walkin

robe, attic storage trusses, as well as

the potential for hooks and shelving

in the garage for bikes, tools, garden

equipment and even kayaks.

• Off-street parking – How many

vehicles can be parked on the driveway?

Will this space be sufficient?

• Garden - Is there sufficient space

for your children to play or for

entertaining?

A checklist will allow you to determine

what will suit your needs, the point of

the exercise, saving you time looking at

properties or potential house designs

while assisting you to decide whether

to buy a new or existing home with

both options having advantages and

disadvantages.

Selling property without a real estate

agent – what you need to know

If you’re selling an old appliance,

or even a second-hand car, it’s fairly

safe to assume you can do it yourself

without much hassle. You advertise it;

find a buyer, exchange the goods for

the money and it’s all sorted. There’s

no need for a third party to manage

the process.

But things get a bit more complicated

when it comes to selling property. Get

this kind of transaction wrong and

you could be paying the price for years

to come.

The Real Estate Agents Authority

(REAA), the independent Crown

entity that’s responsible for New

Zealand’s licensed real estate agents,

wants people to be as informed as

possible about buying and selling

property. It recommends working

with a licensed real estate agent when

you’re selling.

“Property transactions involve

professional experts at every stage – as

well as real estate agents, people are

likely to engage with valuers, building

inspectors, engineers and lawyers,”

REAA chief executive Kevin Lampen-

Smith says.

“Real estate agents are expected to

continually upskill to stay on top of

changes to legislation and current

requirements, so working with a

licensed agent gives you improved

security. If you sell your home

privately you do not have the same

access to redress if things go wrong.

A real estate agent is there to help you

navigate the process and get the best

result.”

If you want to sell privately – without

the help of a licensed real estate agent -

you need to weigh up the pros and cons

of doing it yourself. There’s more to

selling your home than just putting up

a sign and showing prospective buyers

around; you need to understand the

value of your property, set a price and

choose the best way to sell it (such

as by auction or tender). You have to

choose a method of marketing and

answer questions from prospective

buyers. You also need to organise the

sale and purchase agreement, which is

the legal document that transfers the

property from one owner to another.

This includes negotiating conditions

of the sale, such as what chattels will

be included, the sale timeline and any

other variations. Even if you choose to

proceed with a private sale, it’s a good

idea to engage a lawyer at an early stage

to handle the paperwork. A lawyer will

generally need to be involved to carry

out the actual settlement.

As a seller, you are legally obliged to

share all relevant information about a

property to prospective buyers, such as

whether or not it is subject to weathertightness

issues, for example. If you

mislead a potential buyer, they can

seek to cancel the sale and purchase

agreement. They can even take you to

court later if you’ve misinformed them

about the state of the property

and they suffer subsequent

financial loss.

Lampen-Smith

says people should

also be aware of

their obligations,

particularly regarding

commission, if a

property had been first

listed with an agent.

“Make sure you

are aware of the

cancellation terms

of your agreement as

these vary between

agencies. If the

agent has done

some work to

market your

property, but

you then sell it

privately, you

may still have

to pay them a

commission.”

If you decide to

sell with the assistance

of a real estate agent,

make sure they are licensed. You

can check out the REAA’s free online

public register of licensed real estate

agents, and get more information

about buying and selling property, at

www.reaa.govt.nz.

Show Homes - the ultimate

way to shop around

Across the Selwyn district, we are blessed with an extensive

array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show

homes to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and present

a snapshot into a new and luxurious

lifestyle, featuring all the latest in materials,

fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

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.

So what are you waiting for? Check out

our maps, grab a notepad and pencil and

begin the exciting project of building your

own home.
