Bid to solve illegal rubbish dumping

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A CRACK down on illegal

rubbish dumping is under way in

the district.

The district council want

people to report and record the

number plate of any vehicle

involved in illegal dumpings.

It comes after several incidents

of what is known as fly-tipping

in the past month.

In a bid to address the problem,

the district council has

undertaken a rubbish survey

focusing on more rural-remote

areas.

Mayor Sam Broughton said it

is looking at its rubbish provision

to make disposal easier for the

community.

In the past 12 months. 324

service requests for roadside rubbish/street

cleaning have been

made.

But the district council’s roading

engineer Mark Chamberlain

said while not all of these reports

were related to fly-tipping.

“People that dump rubbish on

roadsides don’t care what effect

it has on the environment or

on the Selwyn community...its

very difficult to find those who

illegally dump rubbish as it often

occurs at night,” he said.

Most recently, a large pile of

rubbish containing glass, concrete,

buckets, household waste,

underfloor matting and carpet

was found on Finlays Rd in West

Melton.

The rubbish has since been

cleaned up.

The new rubbish survey

released targets improving the

disposal of rubbish for residents

living in off-route rural areas to

prevent future illegal rubbish

dumpings.

As a result of the survey,

Darfield and Leeston have been

identified as areas in need of

recycling stations for properties

living away from the rubbish collection

route.

It showed nearly 170 rural residents

would like to see more 24/7

drop-off facilities for disposing

rubbish.

About 90 residents would

like to see more drop-off points

closer to their home on a refuse

collection route.

Highest cause of frustrations

was the kerbside collections

and recycling/recovery parks

being too far away. The district

council’s solid waste manager

Andrew Boyd said 92 per cent

of households have access to

kerbside wheelie bin services.

He said solutions to the problem

include garden waste and scrap

metal community days in Malvern

and Leeston.

The rubbish survey showed

the most common ways for the

disposal of off-route rubbish

was burning it (35 per cent),

using a private contractor’s bin

(34 per cent) and taking it to a

kerbside/drop off point (28 per

cent).

rubbish provisions would

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

THERE’S GOOD things on

the horizon for the Leeston

area, and wider district in

general.

On page 7 today, we outline

the Ellesmere Heritage Park

Trust’s vision to promote tourism

in the district, which apart

from the skifields and a few

other things is fairly skinny.

It hasn’t happened overnight,

though – the vision has

been six years in the making.

Let’s hope it doesn’t take that

long to get the vision off the

ground.

Speaking of new things The

Black Door Bar and Eatery has

opened in Lincoln.

Word on the street in

Lincoln is it’s good. The beer’s

reasonably priced, the food is

very good and the staff are fantastic,

according to some of the

boys who went in on Friday

and Saturday night.

Back to normal after massive rainfall

A Civil Defence state of

emergency has been

lifted for the district

following the wild

weather which raged

across the area at the

weekend. Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

reports

RESIDENTS FROM Selwyn

Huts and Chamberlains Ford

were evacuated, while residents

north of Coes Ford selfevacuated.

The Leeston Volunteer Fire

Brigade had about 10 weather-related

call-outs over the weekend.

Chief fire officer Lloyd Clausen

said everything has basically

gone back to normal.

“We evacuated two people

out of Chamberlains Ford, with

a four-wheel-drive tractor. The

water was about waste deep,” he

said.

The brigade also did sand-bagging

around Leeston and Doyleston

and assisted with evacuating

residents from Selwyn Huts

along with the Lincoln Volunteer

Fire Brigade.

Lincoln chief fire officer Jeremy

Greenwood said the Selwyn

River breached the stock-banks

making it difficult for services to

access the huts and army trucks

were called into assist.

Sheffield chief fire officer

Neville Croy said the area got off

very lightly and the brigade was

not called to assist Darfield or

Springfield.

Meanwhile, tensions have risen

after the district council shut off

Springfield’s potable water supply

from Saturday 10pm to 9am

Sunday morning due to high

turbidity conditions.

A water tanker was sent to the

Springfield Community Centre

and was still there yesterday.

A precautionary boil water notice

remains in place for properties

connected to the Springfield

water supply until further notice.

A post was made on the

Springfield Community Hub,

NZ page on Facebook by resident

Andrew Sanderson on the water

supply being cut off.

“Two thousand dollars a year

rates, three days of torrential

rain and Springfield has no water

available for residents?...maybe

it’s time some of the rate’s spend

got put into assets and not parks

for Rolleston,” he said.

But Springfield Township

Committee chairman Graeme

Dawson said the comments

online were unfair and uninformed.

“I am disappointed

in the reaction of some of the

people...we (the township) tried

to get around the town and

advise them what was going on,”

he said.

A $120,000 water treatment

plant has been built in the village

after lobbying from the Springfield

Township Committee and

is to be commissioned at the end

of this month Mr Dawson said if

water is pumped out of the river,

given the amount of rain there is

going to be a turbidity problem.

But Springfield chief fire officer

Grant Williams said he did not

blame residents for being unhappy

about having their water

supply cut off.

“The district council have got

to address water issues at the

village at some stage...in saying

that there are a lot of critics out

there,” he said.

Tourism boost aim of heritage park

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

DESTINATION: Plans have been put forward to transform an old district council workshop yard

into a heritage park. ​

THE VISION for a major

overhaul to fast-track Ellesmere

into a tourist destination has

been revealed.

The plans, presented by the

Ellesmere Heritage Park Trust at

a district council meeting, have

been more than six years in the

making.

The presentation was made by

trust chairman Chris Peacock

and Geraint Howells, of Include

Ltd, who helped produce the

plans.

“If you want tourists, you are

going to have to provide quality

tourist destinations,” Mr Howells

said.

The plans centre around transforming

a former district council

workshop yard into a cultural

and heritage park.

A museum, two exhibition

spaces, multiple heritage buildings

and a community centre

with a theatre have been earmarked

for the site on Leeston

Rd, bordering the Ellesmere A &

P Showgrounds.

The plan is to earthquakestrengthen

the old workshop

shed and convert it into a museum

to display more than 7000

of the trust’s artefacts.

A building permit is being

sought for the trust’s historic cottage,

which is already on site and

will be restored.

The trust hopes to source other

heritage buildings from around

Selwyn for the site.

Plans have also been pitched to

include a potential campervan/

camp site, an i-SITE visitor

information centre, store shed,

picnic area, playground and

bicycle hire.

It is estimated the entire heritage

park site project would cost

about $600,000.

Trust member Grant Clausen

said the project will be a catalyst

for improving tourism in the

area.

But he said the plans were only

a vision at this stage and were yet

to be finalised.

With an emphasis on bringing

more tourists into the area,

additional ideas for a heritage

trail, horse trekking and walking

tracks have been put forward.

The heritage trail would run

from Akaroa to Timaru, while

horse trekking, cycle and walking

tracks could be established

around Lake Ellesmere/Te

Waihora.

Mr Clausen said

the lake has two

bird sanctuaries

and, in spite of

algal bloom, still

has eels, trout and

flounder living in

it. While Mr Clausen

did not wish

to say how much

Pat

McEvedy

had been fundraised, the trust

has raised enough to undertake

research into the project.

The district council has put

$20,000 into the project. A

timeline for the project is yet to

be established. The next step will

be further consultation with the

public and the trust will begin

applying for funding applications.

Councillor Pat McEvedy said

the district council has done a

good job supporting the trust,

and the trust has rewarded it by

coming back with a vision.

$1.5m donation fails to surface for Maddie

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE WOMAN who made a

$1.5million pledge that could

help save West Melton teenager

Maddie Collins’ life has gone to

ground.

Maddie’s family have not heard

from the woman since Thursday

- when The star newspaper

revealed that the woman’s pledge

was likely to be bigus.

Maddie’s family are devastate

dthe woman is unlikely to have

the money.

A middle-aged woman told

the family she would donate

the money from a $42 million

inheritance, enough to pay for

Maddie’s treatment for kidney

failure.

The woman visited the family’s

home to discuss the donation

and continually phones and

Facebook messages them.

But Maddie’s mother Sarah

Manson Collins now believes the

offer is false.

It has distressed the family

considerably.

“It’s that utter sense of false

hope. When we met her we

thought all our stresses and

worries were gone,” Mrs Manson

Collins told The Star.

“We thought we’ll get the

transplant, and by next year

Maddie will be fighting fit and

able to get on with life,” she said.

Maddie, 13, has kidney failure

with potentially life-threatening

complications. Her family has

been involved in a high profile

fundraising campaign to get

her a kidney transplant and follow

up treatment in the United

States.

They visited the Baltimore

hospital where the operation will

take place last month and were

told the cost had jumped from

$350,000 to more than $700,000.

About $170,000 has so far been

raised for the St Margaret’s College

year 9 student.

The family was approached by

the woman via Facebook early

last month who asked to meet

in person at their West Melton

home to give them a cheque.

The woman spent an hour at

their home but didn’t have the

cheque, saying she needed to

organise it with the bank.

Since then the woman has

made many more promises to

pay, which haven’t eventuated.

The latest was on Wednesday

morning when the woman said

on Facebook Messenger she had

arranged the bank transfer last

Monday, but could not check it

DISAPPOINTED: Animal-lover Maddie Collins, pictured with

her pony, Trig, and mum, Sarah Manson Collins, has been left

feeling shattered after a bogus $1.5m donation pledge, which

would have paid for the kidney treatment she needs. PHOTO:

MARTIN HUNTER

as she said she was on holiday in

Dunedin.

In the message she told Mrs

Manson Collins: “A transfer did

go out but not too sure where.

“Sorry about this mucking

around it would be stressful time

for you all. Not just Maddie but

the whole family.”

Mrs Manson Collins sai dthey

had not heard again from the

woman.

The constant hope of the donation

was cruel.

“That could mean my daughter’s

life,” said Mrs Manson

Collins.

She said the woman seemed

genuine when she visited the

house. She was aged in her 50s.

She was completely bewildered

about why the woman would do

that to them, or what she was

trying to achieve.

The family are looking to get

a kidney transplant at the John

Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore,

as there is more chance of getting

a donated kidney, and the treatment

offered there would make

it more likely Maddie’s body

would accept it, even if it was not

a perfect match. Maddie’s father,

Adam Collins, donated one of

his kidneys to her in 2012, but

her body rejected it.

This year Maddie was told the

daily dialysis treatment she is on

has put so much strain on her

heart, she was at risk of a heart

attack. That made the need for a

kidney transplant more urgent.

Attempts by The Star to contact

the woman have been futile.

But a family member tracked

down said she had been known

to have “told some whoppers” in

the past.

He was unaware of the $42

million inheritance.

a young player will know this

week if she will face a formal

hearing.

West Melton under-14.5s

coach Amanda Tomlinson

has been sidelined while the

Canterbury Rugby Football

Union investigates the matter.

The incident happened

during her team’s match against

Lincoln under-14.5s on July 8.

Ellesmere Rugby Sub Union

president Stuart Boon said he

expected the CRFU report to

come back in the next couple of

days, which would recommend

if there would a hearing.

A complaint was laid against

Tomlinson by the Lincoln

Rugby Club.

Police are investigating but

won’t say what into.

Tomlinson said last week

she grabbed the Lincoln player

by his collar after he kicked

a player from her team in the

mouth during the match.

The Selwyn Times

understands the inquiry is also

looking at an allegation the

player was held by the throat.

PRE-GAME: The West Melton under-14.5 team, which is

coached by Amanda Tomlinson (inset), before the match in

which the incident happened.

“I didn’t physically assault

him, I didn’t. I grabbed him

by the collar of his shirt so he

would look me in the eye,” she

said.

The West Melton player

needed dental surgery, she

said.

“His teeth were facing his

tonsils, basically. That doesn’t

happen in a game of rugby,” she

said.

Tomlinson regretted what

happened, but said she had

to intervene before the boy’s

“behaviour escalates”.

She said she talked with the

boy again after the match and

made peace with him.

“We’ve talked, we’ve hugged

each other,” she said.

Tomlinson said she was upset

a complaint had been laid.

“I spend so much of my

time with these young teams,

two hours on a Tuesday or a

Thursday and two or three

hours on a Saturday, and for

no reward. So it just hurts,” she

said.

Lincoln Rugby Club junior

advisory board manager Mike

Kingston said the boy who had

been grabbed by Tomlinson

was not injured.

He would not comment on

Tomlinson saying the Lincoln

player had kicked a West

Melton opponent in the face.

West Melton Rugby Football

Club president Anthony Calder

refused to comment.

In Brief

CAMPERVAN CRASH

Black ice was the cause of a

campervan tipping over at Porters

Pass near Lake Lyndon on Sunday

morning. The Springfield and

Sheffield fire brigades were called

out to assist with the campervan

accident. Springfield chief fire

officer Grant Williams said no-one

was hurt.

FONTERRA’S BIG PLANS

Fonterra has announced plans for

two new cream cheese plants for

its site in Darfield. A $150 million,

two-stage project will see the first

plant completed in 2018 with a

second to follow in either 2019 or

2020. Fonterra’s director of global

foodservice Grant Watson said the

investment is a timely one as more

and more consumers around Asia

develop a preference for milkbased

products.

BRIGADE’S CHARITY DRIVE

The Sheffield Volunteer Fire

Brigade will hold its annual charity

4x4 Mud Plug event on August 27.

Vehicles will navigate their way

through courses, losing points

for knocking pegs or going off

course. The event will be held at

Derek Bull Farm on the corner of

Main West Coast Rd and Waimak

Gorge Rd in Sheffield. For more

information, call 021 650 554 or

027 604 1824.

Castle Hill

Community

Association

member

John Reid

writes

about the

village’s commercial

and residential

development, the

need for public toilets

and a number of trees

set to be removed

Castle Hill Village has

been lucky to have a good

fall of snow for the school

holidays.

A lot of snow fights and

children sliding down

the hill by the water slide.

Skifields are off to a good

start.

A number of new

houses are being built in

the village and the design

controls result in

attractive architecture

which blends in with the

alpine environment.

The village has a very

active community association

which also acts as the

township

committee for this part of

the district with whom we

work closely.

There is a review of our

Reserves Management

Plan in progress which

discusses the

continuing management

of the village reserves and

in particular its trees.

One important item

for consideration is the

removal of Pinus contorta

(lodgepole pine)

that has established itself

around our community

hall and tennis court.

A process of annual

removal and re-planting

has been

going on for a number of

years.

It has now been decided

that these trees will have

to be removed as part of

a district-wide move to

stop the spread of wilding

pines.

The review will decide

how quickly this can be

achieved.

The growth of visitor

traffic on the Great Alpine

Highway and the growth

of the mountain-biking

community using the

network of trails now developed

around the village

has meant

that one public toilet is not

enough.

The district council is

working on the provision

of three new toilets and

will approach the Government

for funds as part of

the recent announcement

of a new funding initiative

for this purpose.

Plans for the final

stages of residential

development and plans for

the village’s commercial

zone have been prepared

and submitted to district

council.

The township

committee wishes to

have an opportunity to

comment on these plans

as the future village centre

will be developed there

and this will have a great

impact on the additional

amenities and services

available for visitors and

residents alike.

SCHOOL PATROL

SCHOOL PATROL

Have a Go Day will take place on Sunday 27 August between 12pm

and 3pm at the Lincoln Event Centre and Domain.

This free annual event showcases the variety of sport and recreation

activities available in Lincoln and the wider Selwyn district.

Nearly 30 indoor and outdoor sports, activities, games and

challenges are planned. Girl guiding, CrossFit, archery, basketball,

table tennis, bouncy castles, dodgeball and indoor bowls are just

some of what’s on offer.

Complete five challenges to get your Have a Go Day passport

stamped and enter the main prize draw for a chance to win $250 in

sport vouchers! Passports will be available to collect on arrival.

Enjoy live music, with coffee and a sausage sizzle provided.

Get spotted doing

the safe thing!

Is your child’s school signed up to Get Spotted? If so, they may get spotted doing the safe thing

during the start of Term 3. Keep an eye out at your school for the Get Spotted poster. Children

spotted showing safe behaviour when heading to or from school could earn a reward.

Selwyn District Council School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler says the idea of

the programme is to positively reinforce good road safety behaviour. “It has been developed to

recognise learners that are doing the right thing in terms of road safety awareness, by teachers

awarding a small token such as a sticker or wrist band.”

This flexible campaign is available for schools and early-childhood educators based around

their needs.

For more information please email stephanie.hautler@selwyn.govt.nz or phone 347 2705.

Relax and recover with hydrotherapy

The hydrotherapy pool is one of the key features of the Selwyn Aquatic Centre. Maintained at a balmy 35

degrees, it is designed to be used as a gentle and effective aid for pain relief or muscle tension.

It’s perfect for people rehabilitating from illness or injury, those who face challenges with their mobility,

or for general well-being and relaxation.

The pool measures 16mx6m, has a depth ranging from 1.2m–1.8m, has a wheelchair accessible ramp,

and is supervised by lifeguards at all times. It’s recommended if you are using the hydrotherapy pool

for medical reasons you check with your doctor first. You’ll need to bring drinking water with you to

stay hydrated.

The hydrotherapy pool is available for general use during Selwyn Aquatic Centre’s opening hours:

Monday–Friday, 6am–9pm and Saturday–Sunday between 8am–8pm.

For more information about the hydrotherapy pool or any of Selwyn Aquatic Centre’s services please

phone 347 2734 or email sac.enquiries@selwyn.govt.nz.

LEGO Clubs are coming to

Selwyn Libraries!

We’re excited to announce the opportunity for Selwyn kids to join

the LEGO Club at Lincoln and Leeston Libraries.

Once a month experts from the House of Bricks will host fun,

interactive after-school sessions at both libraries for kids wanting to

try their hand at building LEGO creations. Session times are:

· Lincoln Library, first Wednesday of each month, beginning

2 August, 3.30–4.30pm

· Leeston Library, third Monday of each month, beginning

21 August, 3.30–4.30pm

The sessions are free but to join the club please contact the library

Sessions are held during term time only and are recommended for

primary-aged children. Children under eight years of age must be

accompanied by an adult.

On the roads this week

After the weekend’s wet weather there are many new potholes on

the roads. Council’s contractors are out doing repairs as quickly

as possible, but we also ask residents to report potholes and any

other roading issues through our Helpline 347 2800 or the Snap,

Send, Solve app. Your patience and caution on the roads will be

appreciated by all road users.

The intersection of Hoskyns Road and Sandy Knolls Road is

being upgraded and a change of priority will occur so that traffic

approaching from Sandy Knolls Road will need to stop. Traffic delays

may occur and detours may operate while the upgrade occurs.

Construction of a right-turn bay is continuing at the intersection of

Dynes Road and Springston Rolleston Road, with traffic controls in

place at this location. Care is needed when driving through the site.

Unsealed road maintenance will occur on Malvern Hills Road.

Footpath construction will be occurring on Liffey Springs walkway.

Sewer line installation work is continuing on Shands Road and

Selwyn Road – traffic delays may occur due to this work.

Christchurch Southern Motorway Extension – NZTA

From Monday 24 July the CSM2 project team continue to fell trees

along the north-bound side of Main South Road between Weedons

Ross Road and Curraghs Road. This will be carried out using Stop/Go

setups between 9am and 4pm and will create queues. We recommend

allowing more time for your journey or using alternative side roads.

Tai Tapu – a community on the rise

It takes a community with resilience, enthusiasm and energy to regroup after a disaster and find funding for new local facilities.

Community efforts towards the new Rhodes Park community and sports facility and play centre in Tai Tapu are testament to this. The construction of the Rhodes Park facility is

set to begin in early August and is expected to be completed by June 2018. The new play centre build is completed and running, with a bit of landscaping to finish.

Selwyn District Council Property Manager John Reid says thanks to the community’s creative funding and planning approach, a new facility will replace the original community

hall in the township and the sports pavilion at Rhodes Park, both of which were outdated and suffered damage in the 2010–2011 earthquakes.

“I’m full of admiration for what this community has been able to achieve through the development of a shared, future-focused vision, backed up by sheer hard work,” Mr Reid says.

“A number of different community groups with different views

have come together to develop a solution that doesn’t replicate an

outdated facility provision model, but is future-focused and based

on the community’s needs.”

The old hall site in the township has been retained, and the Tai Tapu

Playcentre has developed a new facility there which includes a

playground that the whole community can enjoy.

“The new community and sports facility at Rhodes Park will be used

for meetings, social events and functions as well as providing a

venue for local sports groups,” says Mr Reid.

The Selwyn District Council investment in the Rhodes Park facility

has been complemented by funding from the Rātā Foundation and

Don Watson

Don of Lincoln earns recognition

Don Watson, 85, was recently recognised for

50 years of service on the Greenpark Memorial

Community Centre Committee. He spoke to Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

How does it feel to get

recognised for 50 years of

service?

It is a privilege to be thought of

in that way as far as the district

council is concerned. I was

pleased to accept a nice trophy.

I wasn’t expecting anything like

that. You don’t do these things to

be rewarded, you do it because

you like it.

Pretty big deal isn’t it?

I suppose it is. It is one of those

things when you live in a small

community you do your part to

play along and put something

back into the community. That

is one of the reasons I did that.

In 2012, when I moved to the

Lincoln township, I volunteered

to retire from the committee

and they said ‘no don’t do that’.

We were in the throws of getting

our replacement hall after it was

damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquake. I stayed on

until it became a reality.

What was it like going

through the whole process of

the earthquake, losing and

replacing the hall?

It was a big deal, we had good

insurance. The hall was a brick

building and it disintegrated

badly in the earthquake. With

the help of the district council

and our little committee, we

pushed ahead and eventually got

what we have. The new hall is a

great asset to the district and is

being very well-used.

Do you have any key memories

of the old hall over your 50

years?

In the early years of the committee,

we were responsible

for the entire hall ourselves.

We were responsible for the

fundraising and keeping it

maintained. That all came at a

cost. We used to run functions

at the hall for the hall committee

to raise funds – dances, balls

and all those things in the 1960s.

We used to do an annual collection

around the district and

ask for donations towards the

maintenance of the hall. It wasn’t

easy for members to have to do,

but we had to make sure we did

it. The district council took over

from the fundraising in about

1995. That took away the problem

we had with fundraising,

which was a big help.

Is there a story behind

why you decided to go on the

committee?

At the time, the present hall

committee had been on there

for a considerable amount of

years and they were all getting

a bit elderly. The hall committee

sent a letter out to all who held

meetings and used the hall. They

wanted to set up a new committee

and were going to retire if

there wasn’t enough members

showing up. At the time, I was

secretary of the Tai Tapu district’s

Federated Farmers. I along

with a few others got voted on to

where I’ve remained ever since.

Tell me about your life as a

farmer?

We were on 90-100ha block

dairy farm on Davidsons Rd.

Regrettably, it was sold off in

2007 after it was in the family for

more than 90 years. It gradually

grew from a small unit to a large.

We started off in the 1950s with

20 cows, now there are more

than 1000. When we retired,

we were milking more than 370

cows. We did contract with harvesting

to add to our outcome.

As the years progressed, we gave

up our harvesting and turned

it into a more straight forward

dairy farm.

Was there a time where you

wanted to give farming up and

do something else?

No, I didn’t have that appeal

at all. I was keen on my farming.

I became a director of the local

farming company, Canterbury

Dairy Farmers, which processed

and distributed our milk. I was

DEDICATION: Don Watson received a 50-year service award

for the time he has dedicated to the Greenpark Memorial

Community Centre Committee.

15 years on the board of directors

of that company. I saw it

grow from being a Canterburybased

company to merging to

be the sole representative of

South Island dairy farmers. I was

pleased to be part of that.

What school did you go to?

I went to Christchurch Boys’

High School. It was great – I

was involved in the sports side.

I learned to play tennis while

at high school. I was part of the

rugby teams. I played rugby for

the Waihora Rugby Club and

the Greenpark Tennis Club. I

was the first secretary of the

Greenpark Tennis Club. It was

formed in about 1950 and I was

there for about 12 years. After I

finished playing rugby, I became

a member of the Waihora committee

and was the president of

the club for a year.

Do you have any significant

achievements that stood out

for you when you were playing

rugby or tennis?

Nothing in the tennis line, but

I played representative rugby for

the Ellesmere Rugby Sub Union

for several years. It was pretty

competitive in those days. I was

a hooker – I partially blame that

for having a bad back.

Tell me about your family?

My wife and I have been married

for 61 years. We both lived

in Greenpark and you didn’t

have to go far in those days – I

only had a bike for a while. We

met through NZ Young Farmers,

netball, basketball clubs

and joined up at a lot of dances.

There were six of us in a little

group and they all finished up by

marrying each other.

Our eldest son is in the world

of banking. Our daughter is now

living in Lincoln as a registered

nurse. Our youngest son was a

very keen sportsman as far as

rugby and tennis went. He came

home to assist on the farm when

he left school. He took over until

he gave up in 2007 and set up

a cafe business. Now he has a

manufacturing polythene pipe

business in Rolleston.

You have been involved in a

lot of organisations. Is there

anything else we don’t know

about?

I was involved in the Lincoln

Anglican Parish in a large way

during my farming days. I was

a member through St Mark’s

Anglican Church. I still attend

services where we have been for

more than 60 years. I was a lay

reader for 30 years. The vicar

twisted my arm. I was also people’s

warden, meaning I was the

main go to person – if someone

wanted to talk to somebody

instead of talking to the vicar,

they passed it on to me. I was

also the chairman of the rebuild

committee that rebuilt the St

Stephen’s Anglican Church. The

church was completed in 1992. It

was rebuilt because the old one

was falling a part and had been

there about 120 years.

Anything else?

I also played indoor bowls

for Greenpark. It did eventually

go into recess so I went to

Ladbrooks, which I am still a

member and secretary of at the

moment. We have managed to

get by. I also play outdoor bowls

here in Lincoln. I have been a

member of the club for 15 years

or more. When I was a few weeks

off 80, it wasn’t long until I was

elected president of the club. I

was an 80-year-old president

for a couple of years. I look back

and wonder how I had time to

farm and the answer was a very

capable and suitable wife.

Backyard Critters

Native beetle’s mystery trip to Devon

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 FIG longhorn beetle

(xylotoles griseus) is an attractive

wood-boring beetle native to

New Zealand, being found on

the mainland, Little Barrier

Island and the Poor Knights

Islands.

Interestingly, in 2014, 20 specimens

were found in one location

in Devon, England, the first recorded

outside of New Zealand.

It is unknown how this flightless

species arrived in Devon,

but they emerged from holes in a

recently felled fig tree.

The elongated, elliptical brown

beetle is 11mm long and 4mm

wide with long antennae that

exceed the length of the beetle

itself.

The beetle lives in the dead

wood of a variety of species,

but elm is its most commonly

recorded host.

Other host species include the

natives kawakawa, puka and a

variety of introduced species

such as radiata pine, japanese

honeysuckle, buddleja and willow.

Adults emerge in summer and

the female gnaws a hole in the

bark where she lays her eggs.

Larvae feed below the bark but

pupate in the wood.

The beetle is not considered an

economic pest in New Zealand,

with dead wood appearing to be

their preference over live trees.

UNIQUE: The fig longhorn beetle (xylotoles griseus) is not considered an economic pest in New

Lincoln Uni icon passes away

• By Ian Collins

A WELL-KNOWN personality

who spent 40 years at Lincoln

University has passed away.

Retired associate professor

George Hill died last Monday at

Cashmere View Hospital at the

age of 80.

Mr Hill was a an agronomist

on the plant science staff from

1972-2012 at Lincoln University.

His funeral was last Saturday

at HMNZS Pegasus Naval Reserves

premises in Christchurch.

Mr Hill’s was a life well lived

in diverse areas of service to

plant science, teaching, education

union affairs and the navy.

Born in England, Mr Hill was

brought up in Australia from a

young age and graduated from

the University of Western Australia.

He joined the staff at Lincoln

University in 1972 as an agronomist

after four years working in

Papua New Guinea.

Lincoln University’s big attraction

for him was its use of

on-farm teaching and system of

farmer tutors. This is what drew

him across the Tasman to New

Zealand.

In a parallel career, Mr Hill

was an enthusiastic naval reservist.

He had joined the Royal Australian

Naval Reserve in 1956 as

a seaman and was soon commissioned.

In New Zealand, he rose to the

rank of captain and in Christchurch

he was the commanding

officer of HMNZS Pegasus. He

held significant naval decorations

acknowledging his service.

At Lincoln University, Mr Hill

took his teaching and postgraduate

supervision responsibilities

very seriously and he became

a respected member of the Association

of University Teachers

(now the Tertiary Education

Union).

He had a particular interest in

negotiations around conditions

of employment and non-financial

employment benefits.

In recognition of his union

service, he was made a TEU life

member.

Mr Hill was also an active

justice of the peace, serving

valuably in this role on campus.

Membership of the Lincoln University

Choir was a passion, too.

He was also a council member

of the Agronomy Society of New

Zealand for more than 35 years

and was elected a fellow in 1996.

With professor of plant science

Reinhart Langer, Mr Hill

co-authored the standard plant

science text Agricultural Plants,

which has had several editions

and translations.

Southbridge look to make history

• By Gordon Findlater

SOUTHBRIDGE have the

opportunity to do the clean

sweep for the first time in the

club’s history after defeating

Prebbleton 22-13 on Sunday.

The win means that Southbridge

retained the Murray

Cooper Shield (Ellesmere’s

version of the Ranfurly Shield)

for the off-season. They also

secured the Ellesmere Trophy

for the fourth straight year after

finishing top at the end of the

round-robin.

Earlier in the year, Southbridge

won the Combined Country

Cup and are now just two wins

away from claiming the Coleman

Shield.

“I don’t know if many clubs

have (won all four trophies) before.

It’s a massive challenge and

we’re going to find it very hard.

This late in the season, it comes

down to a big mental battle,”

said Southbridge coach Doug

Maginness.

Sunday’s game also turned

out to be a warm-up for this

weekend’s semi-finals. With

Southbridge finishing No 1

and Prebbleton No 4, it means

they will meet in a semi-final at

Southbridge on Saturday.

“They look to be a really well

trained and drilled unit. They

bring a lot of passion, that’s probably

the big thing I took from the

game,” said Maginness.

Sunday’s game against Prebbleton

was initially due to be played

on Saturday, but was postponed

24 hours due to flooding.

Prebbleton seized the early

initiative with Tim Murgatroyd

slotting two early penalties before

converting a George Wigley try

to give the team a 13-3 advantage

during the first half. Southbridge

answered back before the break,

with a try to Isileli Fine and two

penalty conversions from Shannon

Donald to lead 14-3 at the

break.

As the pitch began to cut up

in the second 40, Southbridge

seized the initiative.

A Mateo Raturawa converted

try extended their lead to 22-13,

and from there they came under

little threat other than a somewhat

controversial disallowed try

to Prebbleton late in the game.

Prebbleton will be up against

it on Saturday, but fancy their

chances of causing an upset.

“We don’t feel too far off,” said

Prebbleton coach Derek Todd.

“We’ve got a few areas we’ll

be looking to make some small

gains over the week. If the conditions

are better this week, then

it should make for a completely

different game.”

Lincoln physios join forces

Physiotherapists in Lincoln have joined

forces and are now working together under

one roof to provide a seamless health

service for people living in Lincoln and the

wider Selwyn community.

With the SportsRehab Lincoln team having

crossed the road to join Motus Lincoln,

physiotherapists Kim Bond and Jody

Watson are now working closely with Brett

Warman, Kathryn Claridge, Mary Robins,

Jo Batchelor and Ethan Horne.

“Joining the two centres together provides

opportunity for professional cooperation

and greater communication between the

therapists so clients receive a high level

of care and access to a larger network of

health professionals,” says Brett Warman,

Manager of Motus Lincoln.

With two great physiotherapy clinics based

on one site, clients have a single point of

contact for a real community based onestop

service with podiatry and massage

therapy health professionals also available.

Sharing a philosophy that emphasises

retention of movement and mobility, the

physiotherapists are now able to draw on a

broader base of knowledge and skills when

helping people of all ages from children to

retirees.

Close relationships will still be maintained

with other health professionals including

local GPs, podiatrists, massage therapists,

hand therapists, and gym trainers as well

as their on-going use of Lincoln University’s

gym.

Having one clinic will also make it easier

for clients making an appointment as more

physiotherapists are available to assist

clients,whether needing help with their

return to work, post-surgery recovery,

arthritis pain, everyday injury, sports injury,

back or neck pain, or pain management.

Motus Lincoln will also continue their links

with community groups and sports teams

in conjunction with their nine clinics spread

across Canterbury.

Another exciting change ahead for the

Lincoln physiotherapists will be early next

year when they move into bigger and

brighter premises. These are currently

under construction next to the Challenge

Service Station. The purpose-built

premises will have a small on-site gym

while their relationship with the even closer

university gym will continue, assisting the

physiotherapists in their proactive approach

to injury management and rehabilitation.

You will find SportsRehab alongside Motus

Lincoln at 16 Gerald Street in Lincoln. For

an appointment, phone Motus Lincoln on

PETS & PAWS

The ultimate in pooch pampering

Regular brushing and washing prevents

dog hair from becoming matted. Other

benefits of grooming are that it allows the

groomer to check for any abnormalities

such as skin problems like ticks, fleas and

dry patches, or issues with their nails, teeth,

ears and eyes.

“When hair is matted, it pulls on the

skin affecting the dog’s comfort,” explains

Loretta, owner of Luxe Doggy Day Spa.

Loretta says when hair becomes matted it

must be clipped out, a time consuming task

that can stress a dog, especially when it is

necessary to clip close to the skin to remove

all matted hair.

Luxe Doggy Day Spa is a boutique

Loretta and her

three pets.

grooming service that offers one-on-one

pampering grooms for dogs.

Loretta has many regulars booked for a

spruce-up every six weeks, as well as dogs

that suffer from anxiety, all enjoying her

caring and loving grooming.

“I treat all the dogs like my own,” says

Loretta who opened her business on

Brookside Road last October.

“It’s really important to me that each dog

has a good experience and the client and

dog are happy,” adds Loretta who admits to

loving her work and living in Rolleston.

Loretta initially intended to operate

part-time however demand for her service

has been so great that it is now a full-time

operation with clients bringing their dogs

from as far afield as Christchurch, Halswell,

Hornby, Lincoln, West Melton, Burnham

and even Ashburton.

Only quality natural products are used

and top of the line equipment that includes

a proper quiet stand up blow dryer so a dog

can be brushed dry, leaving them smelling

superb.

This explains why so many of her client

pooches want to return and with three

pets of her own, Mac (a Maltese), Oscar (a

Shih Tzu) and the very affectionate Bella

(a Spoodle) she has plenty of experience,

recognising a dog’s distinctive personality

provides important clues on how to handle

them.

Professional, friendly and caring are

the words that best describe a pampering

at Luxe Doggy Day Spa, available by

appointment from Monday to Friday,

between 9am and 5pm.

For more information call or text

Loretta on 021 688 803, email: loretta@

luxespa.co.nz or go to: www.luxespa.

to win a monthly gift pack, and check out

Loretta’s Facebook page.

You might also try her puppy package;

a gentle introduction to grooming that

familiarises your pup with the sound and feel

of being groomed, with a wee play time and

toy to take home.

Going on holiday? Give your pets the

comfort of staying at home as you

enjoy the break.

For both daytime pet feeding and

property care, our team will ensure your

treasured pets are taken care of.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

SELWYN TIMES

Hollands have gone water

Superior technology is now a fixture

at Holland Collision Centre in Rolleston

with waterborne paints rather than toxic

chemically based alternatives being used.

This superior method of painting motor

vehicles is possible due to a state of the art

painting booth and other technologically

advanced equipment imported from Italy.

“A really good booth is needed when

working with water borne paint so the

moisture is extracted out of the paint,”

explains Cameron, owner of Holland

Collision Centre.

Rather than drying the paint with a heater,

the paint is blow dried in the booth. This

results in the paint drying more quickly with

great results.

Waterborne paints are more sophisticated,

enabling a more accurate colour match. This

is especially the case with late model vehicles

that have waterborne products that were

applied in special factory conditions.

With waterborne paints the result is

enhanced paintwork that looks sharper so

Holland’s waterborne paint spray booth.

when you pick up your car from Hollands, it

is like driving a new car out of the yard.

An added advantage of working with

waterborne paints is they are safer for the

environment with less potential health risks

for those working with them.

Spraying with water makes clean-up of the

equipment used, an easier task. It is simply

Holland’s new tint room.

Holland Collision Centre are at 826 Jones Road.

washed clean using water rather than a

solvent reducer as was the case in the past.

Therefore, solvents are not wasted or sent for

recycling and purifying which is better for

the environment.

While we may not be thinking about

having our vehicle painted, the slippery wet

and icy conditions at this time of year can

make stopping in time that little bit harder

and accidents do occur.

If unlucky enough to have this happen

to you and are in need of panel repairs,

remember Hollands is nearby. Rather than

allowing your insurer to inconvenience you

by having to take your vehicle all the way into

town for repairs, organise your insurance

claim on-line or over the telephone then

get Hollands to take care of the rest. They

handle work for all the major insurers and

have their own guarantee with the Collision

Repair Association.

Hollands carry out repair and finishing

work for small through to larger vehicles,

whether a car, larger truck, fleet vehicle,

farm machinery, horse float, caravan, motor

home or trailer unit, they can handle the job.

They also do air conditioning re-gassing,

sandblasting and plastic welding and with a

second building over the road, can speedily

turn the work around.

If needing a vehicle while yours is worked

on, just arrange for one of their loan fleet.

Holland Collision Centre is the largest

panel and paint shop in Selwyn and can be

found at 826 Jones Road on the Izone side

of Rolleston. You can call them on 03 347

8703 and check them out on Facebook.

Cameron would also like to thank the team

at Spraystore at 270 Main South Road in

Hornby for their help in installing the new

water borne paint system.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Motor Fest coming to Selwyn

Motor enthusiast, John Winchester

wanted to do something to support the

Selwyn community. After getting together

with other local motoring stalwarts his

initial ideas were soon shaped into what

may become one of Canterbury’s largest

motor festivals.

With motors the common theme for those

involved, Selwyn Motor Fest will provide

something of interest for everyone.

“Whether it’s an enthusiast’s car or

motorbike, truck, tractor, steam engine,

stock car, hot rod, muscle car, classic or

vintage vehicle, if it has a motor we want it at

the show,” says Selwyn District Councillor,

Craig Watson who enthusiastically joined

the organising team.

Craig says they are calling it a motor

fest as the plan is to have a diverse display

of motor related exhibits including army

memorabilia, motor racing, hot rodding, the

fire service, army and police.

The group want this to be a really cool

motor festival that embraces motoring and

motors over the years and they plan to run

it annually so people can show off their big

toys and families can have a really fun day

out.

It is hoped to have over 1,000 show

exhibits and three to four times that in

people attending the day.

The motor fest will also provide an

opportunity for fundraising. This year,

money raised will go to St John to assist

funding of the new station and ambulances

based in Rolleston as well as the other

services they provide.

Organisers of Selwyn Motor

Fest with their prized vehicles.

Planning for the very first Selwyn Motor

Fest, which is scheduled for later this year,

is well underway. Already machinery is

preparing the grounds on land that runs off

the Broadlands Drive extension opposite

Rolleston College.

Members of the Rolleston and Districts

Lions Club who have the experience

will be supporting the event with event

management systems including traffic

planning to ensure a well-run, successful

motor fest with a percentage of funds raised

contributed to their in-need social support

programmes.

While exhibitors will be charged an entry

fee and there will be a gate entry charge, the

aim is to keep the cost as low as possible

so it is an affordable day out and one that

becomes a regular annual family event.

From the original bunch of men and

women who had that first meeting, more

than fifty people have already registered

their vehicles. Numerous car clubs that

have over 600 vehicles on their books have

also shown interest in the event while other

groups and businesses as well as the Selwyn

Petrol Heads club, a group of American car

owners and enthusiasts have indicated their

Gardening

Flowers that are as sweet as can be

Rachel Vogan sings the

praises of sweet peas

– tough little bloomers

that can light up the

garden year-round

WHENEVER I’M asked what

my favorite flower is, I struggle to

answer as I have so many.

It’s like asking which is your

favourite child – how do you

choose? My top picks always

include dahlias, gladioli, daphne,

and daisies; I am never without

roses or hellebores no matter

where I live, and every year

without fail I grow sweet peas

anywhere I can find room to

squeeze them in.

I’m not sure where my devotion

to them came from – my uncle

Teddy used to grow them in

French Farm in the 1970s, so

it may have been from there,

although I have always loved any

flower I can pick for a posy, and

have a special affection for any

bloom that will give someone joy

when they’re presented with it.

New Zealand has a strong

history with sweet peas, both

in terms of seed production

for English and European seed

catalogues and sweet pea breeding.

Dr Keith Hammett is the

godfather of sweet pea breeding;

he has a passion for these blooms

that just captivates you.

Keith’s interest in the sweet pea

started off as a teenager, when

his uncle decided he wanted to

separate his flower and vegetable

garden, doing so by planting a

PACKED WITH PERFUME: High Scent (left) is tremendous variety to plant. Sweet pea Bix (middle)

and Pink Nines for the show bench.

dividing row of sweet peas. To

hear Keith recall it, it was love

at first sight. This love has only

continued throughout the years,

as sweet pea varieties bearing the

Hammett name are now sold all

over New Zealand and around the

world.

I first met him about 20 years

ago, and was struck by his

contagious keenness for both

breeding plants and creating

cultivars that fitted the local

New Zealand climate. I couldn’t

quite keep up with all the

different characteristics he was

producing and aiming for, but was

mesmerised and wanted to soak

up what I could, knowing that I

could stand to learn a lot from

him. So I sat and listened, barely

saying a word!

Fast forward a few decades

and every year I plant out dozens

of his varieties. My go-to is his

High Scent as it has got the

most magnificent fragrance, and

beautiful flowers with an antique

cream base and delicate violet

edging on each petal. One of its

best features is probably its prolific

blooming capacity, as once it starts

flowering in November I can be

picking it continuously until the

end of March, as long as I pick off

any spent flower seed pods along

the way, and make sure to fertilise

and water them regularly. Like me,

they love their tucker!

For the show bench I always

plant Piggy Sue (not to be

confused with Peggy Sue), named

after a pig rescued from farrowing

stalls. Its colouring is a pink flush

against a cream ground, with

young flowers that often resemble

a pink picotee when they first

open. Last year I planted Pink

Nines for the first time, which has

masses of flowers on each stem –

up to nine on each. Paradox has

an intense, rich, violet-blue flower

but has lost its ability to climb,

so is one you would plant as a

ground cover or for use in hanging

baskets.

Keith says all the sweet peas

he offers are great for picking,

reminding me that “Sweet peas are

the ultimate ‘cut and come again’

flower”, meaning that the more

you pick from the flower stems,

the more they will produce.

He goes on to mention: “The

ones with the larger, frilly flowers

have longer stems than, say, some

of the smaller flowered forms

with the strongest scent.” His

most highly-scented varieties are

Original, High Scent, More Scent,

and High Society.

WHEN, WHERE & HOW

• Plenty of sun needs to be

on the menu – while sweet peas

will bloom in half-day sun, the

results are always best when they

are planted somewhere that gets

rays all day.

• Sow seeds now or look

for seedlings, as they are in

the shops throughout August,

September and into October.

• Seeds can be sown directly

where they are to flower

provided the soil is well drained,

in a sunny position, and you

are able to protect against slugs,

snails and maybe birds.

• If sown into pots for

planting out later, seeds do not

need to be grown inside or in

the glasshouse, simply sow and

place outside in full light.

• Provide support – sweet

peas are a tumbling vine and

need something to cling to when

climbing. This support can be

as simple as bamboo canes,

wigwams, or old bike wheels,

while netting against a fence or

wall is a popular choice.

Question:

Answer:

Hi I have a lemon tree and was wondering what are good

companion plants for them?

Companion planting for lemons isn’t something that gets asked

about very often, so there isn’t a set answer exactly. Here is some

information that would be of use if you are wanting to plant something

around your lemons.

Lemons are shallow rooting, need good drainage in winter, a cool root

zone with plenty of water in the summer, and an acid soil ph. This

means that they do not like their roots cultivated to plant any annual

type plants. Therefore more permanent plants around and underneath

the lemon would be OK. Ground cover plants would be suitable (this

could include perennial herbs like mint, rosemary or thyme). These

would help to keep the root zone cool in summer. As far as we are

aware, there are not any plants that would give lemons protection from

pest and diseases that are considered companion plants. That is to

say that they not exist only that we wouldn’t be able to suggest any. A

garden centre expert may be able to help more with this is you need.

We hope this helps.

Want a lemon tree but

don’t have a garden?

Meyer lemon trees grow excellently in pots.

If you are restricted to only having pots and

containers, then this variety is for you. Make

sure you plant them in our Patio Plus potting

mix, and ask us about what fertiliser to use.

There are different fertilisers for trees and plants

in pots and for those that are in garden beds!

Reporting to the site manager duties will

include overseeing (in conjunction with the

a modern seed cleaning plant, serving farmer

clients, forklift operation and general store

duties.

The successful applicant will have customer

contact so a friendly and efficient manner is

essential.

Applicants will need to be physically fit with a

positive attitude and be able to work well in a

small friendly team environment.

Previous experience and knowledge of the grain

and seed industry along with any MPI seed

sampler qualifications would be an advantage

but not necessary as full training and access to

All applications will be treated in the strictest

of confidence.

Applications close 5pm, 4th August 2017.


Hi there,

Attached is your artwork proof. To enable us to complete your order,

we request that this form is completed, signed and returned either

in store or via email, or alternatively a quick email stating that you

have reviewed your proof, and approve for me to send it to print.

I have done my best to check all your details are correct however I’m

only human and I may have missed something, so I advise that you

double check all information thoroughly. This includes information such

as spelling, phone numbers through to dates and addresses. Please

be aware that once you sign off this proof, it is your responsibility

should anything be incorrect when your printing arrives, and any

reprint will be at your cost. Also due to our production efficiency

once the job has been sent to print we are unable to pull your job from

production or make any changes to the artwork or order details, and any

reprint will be at your expense.

Colours can alter in a print run and from previous print jobs due to

various elements such as different batches of paper stock, humidity and

temperature. Colour variation is inherent in the printing process. Your

screen does a pretty rubbish impression of the final colour output, so

please note that all proofs are NOT colour accurate. If you would like to

see a more colour accurate proof we can arrange a digital print for you

to come in and view. If you have any concerns please let us know before

going to print.

Additional file alterations will incur a fee and a new proof will be

supplied. Please contact either myself, or your Account Manager should

you have any changes or queries.

Kind Regards,

Hannah Wylde

More workspace for Izone

It has been the success of 35 Illinois Drive

in creating a micro-business hub within Izone

industrial precinct that has led to further

development at 25 Illinois Drive, where 13

more units are currently under construction

and due to be completed in December 2017.

With many large businesses and two inland

ports now located at Izone, many niche

operations are also locating to Izone and this

is increasing the demand for smaller purpose

built work spaces.

These more specialised businesses support

the larger industries. Complexes such as

Workspace at 35 Illinois Drive that offer new,

attractive and flexible work areas to suit the

variety of businesses, explaining why they

have been so popular.

Workspace has a broad range of tenants

including BNS Design and Print, CrossFit

Rolleston, Posh Paws Dog Grooming,

Rolleston Engineering Supplies, Rolleston

Sushi Factory, Shermac Aluminium and

Joinery, and Vulcan Talent Recruitment.

The new development at 25 Illinois Drive

will appeal to a range of tenants especially

given that units planned for the complex will

range from 96sqm–1,155sqm, offering high

quality warehouse and office spaces with

simplified lease terms.

These simplified lease terms appeal to

tenants as they include gross rentals where the

landlord takes care of building outgoings so

there are no hidden costs making everything

more attractive.

Builders, Hanham and Philip will be

erecting the concrete tilt-slab, insulated roof,

high amenity units that will have generous

on-site parking. Three office suites and ten

office and warehouse units will occupy 25

Illinois Drive, in an environment where

there is minimal noise, making them

suitable for businesses of all kinds, whether

manufacturing, sales and service branches of

larger operations, wholesalers or a retailer.

Izone, which is the largest industrial

development of its kind in New Zealand, is

an ideal location for importers, exporters,

service providers, and those connected to

the dairy industry. With the new 25 Illinois

Drive handy to Café Izone, the Port of

Tauranga’s inland port, the Lyttelton Port of

Christchurch’s MidlandPort, Christchurch

International Airport and the new Southern

Motorway currently under construction, it is

especially appealing.

The best kept secrets

to selling your home

Selling Secret #1: The first impression is

the only impression

No matter how good the interior of your

home looks, buyers have already judged

your home before they walk through the

door. You never have a second chance to

make a first impression. It’s important

to make people feel warm, welcome and

safe as they approach the house. Spruce

up your home’s exterior with inexpensive

shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry

ways are also important. You use it as a

utility space for your coat and keys. But,

when you’re selling, make it welcoming by

putting in a small bench or a vase of freshcut

flowers.

Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to

show

Your house needs to be “show-ready” at

all times – you never know when your

buyer is going to walk through the door.

You have to be available whenever they

want to come see the place and it has to

be in tip-top shape. Don’t leave dishes in

the sink, keep the dishwasher cleaned out,

the bathrooms sparkling and make sure

there are no dust bunnies in the corners.

It’s a little inconvenient, but it will get your

house sold.

Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first

You’re not actually selling your house,

you’re selling your kitchen – that’s how

important it is. The benefits of remodeling

your kitchen are endless, and the best

part of it is that you’ll probably get 85%

of your money back. It may be a few

thousand dollars to replace countertops

where a buyer may knock

$10,000 off the asking price

if your kitchen looks dated.

The fastest, most inexpensive

kitchen updates include

painting and new cabinet

hardware. Use a neutralcolor

paint so you can

present buyers with a blank

canvas where they can start

envisioning their own style.

If you have a little money to

spend, buy one fancy stainless

steel appliance. Why one?

Because when people see

one high-end appliance they think all the

rest are expensive too and it updates the

kitchen.

Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of

your house

One of the most important things to

do when selling your house is to depersonalize

it. The more personal stuff in

your house, the less potential buyers can

imagine themselves living there. Get rid

of a third of your stuff – put it in storage.

This includes family photos, memorabilia

collections and personal keepsakes.

Staging simply means arranging your

furniture to best showcase the floor plan

and maximize the use of space.

Selling Secret #5: Don’t over-upgrade

Quick fixes before selling always pay off.

Mammoth makeovers, not so much. You

probably won’t get your money back if you

do a huge improvement project before you

put your house on the market. Instead,

do updates that will pay off and get you

top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint

on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy

some inexpensive new ones. Replace door

handles, cabinet hardware, make sure

closet doors are on track, fix leaky faucets

and clean the grout.

Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters

You might think a cuddly dog would

warm the hearts of potential buyers, but

you’d be wrong. Not everybody is a dogor

cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in

your home and see a bowl full of dog food,

smell the kitty litter box or have tufts of

pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give

buyers the impression that your house is

not clean. If you’re planning an open home

don’t leave your pets around.

Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field

A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong

real estate agent. Make sure you have an

agent who is totally informed. They must

constantly monitor the multiple listing

service (MLS), know what properties are

going on the market and know the comps

in your neighborhood. Find an agent who

embraces technology – a tech-savvy one

has many tools to get your house sold.

Selling Secret #8: Light it up

Maximize the light in your home. After

location, good light is the one thing that

every buyer cites that they want in a

home. Take down the drapes, clean the

windows, change the lampshades, increase

the wattage of your light bulbs and cut the

bushes outside to let in sunshine. Do what

you have to do make your house bright

and cheery – it will make it more sellable.

Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets

Storage is something every buyer is

looking for and can never have enough of.

Take half the stuff out of your closets then

neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers

will snoop, so be sure to keep all your

closets and cabinets clean and tidy.

Fix those

minor defects

Start out front, cleaning, clearing and

decluttering the yard to make a good

impression on buyers.

It’s a rare house that doesn’t have defects.

Even newly renovated ones can have

features that detract for buyers. But there

are ways for sellers to deflect attention

from them without pretending they’re not

there. The three main ways of dealing with

defects are:

1. Fix them.

2. Draw the eye away from them.

3. Use them as a selling point.

Simple defects can be fixed easily. Start

out front. Overgrown bushes can be

trimmed, or replaced with a few matching

plants, old fences and front doors can be

painted or stained, and the paths cleaned.

Do this even if a property is a do-up.

You want to give the impression that

buyers can move into the house and chip

away at the work in their own time

If you have time and money, paint sills

and eaves using accents.

Inside, the first thing buyers see is the

hallway, which can be brightened up with

a lick of paint. The neutral paint trick can

also be used to paint over dated wallpaper,

completely changing the look and feel of a

tired house.

Bathrooms and kitchens are important to

buyers, and the eye settles on vanities and

benches. These can be resurfaced relatively

quickly to give a modern look.

If the seller can’t repaint or tile the

bathroom bring in high quality matching

towels, which become a feature in the

room and draw the eye from the less than

desirable walls and features. Nice vases and

flowers will do the same.

Replacing handles and knobs to draw

attention away from the units themselves.

This reduces the number of “I have to do

this” thoughts in potential buyers’ minds.

Drawing the eye away from a multitude

of sins is exactly the thing to do.

If you see an empty house the eye always

goes to marks on the carpet and walls and

this will lower the price expectation.”

Drawing the eye to the furniture and

furnishings, creates better flow, and de

cluttering makes buyers feel the home

would be a nice place to live in.

The other way to handle the property’s

defects is to raise them with the buyer

before they see them.

If the carpet is bad, for example, you

can say: “Hey, they were going to replace

the carpet but they decided to leave it to

you to choose a new carpet and priced it

accordingly.”

Finally, good old fashioned elbow grease

is essential in all properties to remove

those sins that are simply cleanable.

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

Supporting our locals!

Hannah Bates, a 16 year old girl from Lincoln left last week to go the

Commonwealth Youth Games in the Bahamas.

Harcourts Rolleston office is her principle sponsor and sponsored her to go initially

in April to the Australian Age Group Swimming Championships in Brisbane where

she won a gold medal in the 400 metre individual medley and silver in the 200 metre

individual medley. As a result of these successes, Hannah was selected to go the

Commonwealth Youth Games and the Harcourts Rolleston office is once again her

principle sponsor donating $2,500.

She is part of a 34 strong team from NZ and is 1 of 2 South Islanders in this team.

Hannah will compete in 5 events. Hannah came and spoke to us about her journey

to date and her aspirations going forward and this photo shows Hannah with our

team. We wish her every success!
