Another

$100k

raised

to help

Maddie

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MORE THAN $100,000 has been

raised at a fundraising evening

to help West Melton teenager

Maddie Collins.

The event at the Addington

Raceway last week drew a

crowd of more than 300 people

in support of Maddie, who

is in urgent need of a kidney

transplant.

She is waiting to hear if she

can get a transplant at The Johns

Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore,

United States, which is expected

to cost $750,000.

The $100k adds to the $170,000

already raised for Maddie through

Givealittle pages and community

events, bringing the total now

raised to more than $270,000.

Maddie is in Auckland’s Starship

Hospital with her mother,

Sarah Manson Collins, this week

having more tests and getting

advice about Maddie’s medication

and dialysis treatment.

Mrs Manson Collins said

the fundraising event was amazing.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

THERE’S AN emphasis on youth

on our front page today – two girls

who have different but very difficult

missions in life.

Maddie Collins, the West Melton

13-year-old, has on her plate a

mission to survive. That’s right:

Survive. She is relying on the public

for expensive treatment for a kidney

condition.

One hundred thousand dollars

was raised last week but there’s

much more to go.

Also, on the front page is swimmer

Hannah Bates, a Lincoln

17-year-old who has just returned

from the Bahamas with a bronze

medal at the Commonwealth Youth

Games.

Her aspiration is to get to an

Olympics. To do this she will need

financial help to compete internationally,

the only way that she will

consistently improve over the next

few years to reach her goals.

If there were ever good causes . . .

Kayak park plan for The Willows

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A KAYAKING facility could be

constructed to complement The

Willows Park development near

the Waimakariri River.

Environment Canterbury is

running a series of workshops

to discuss how they could develop

The Willows at the end of

Thompsons Rd.

Kayaker Bruce Leslie has

pitched an idea to

construct a new

white water course

and swimming hole

downstream from

the irrigation canal

Tom

Lambie

on Intake Rd near

Kirwee.

The kayaking

facility and swimming

hole aims to discourage

people from swimming near the

irrigation canal.

But ECan parks and forest

team leader David Owen said

while these ideas could be considered

in the future, it was not

part of The Willows planning.

There was no consultation

document available for The Willows

development.

However, the kayaking facility

and swimming hole were discussed

at a Christchurch West

Melton Water Management

Zone Committee meeting last

IDEA: An image drawn by kayaker Bruce Leslie of a proposed

new water facility which could be developed near the

Waimakariri River at the end of Thompsons Rd.

week, but no formal resolution

was made.

Committee member and

ECan councillor Tom Lambie

said while the committee was

willing to explore the option,

a lot of work would need to be

done to see if the project was

feasible.

Although Mr Leslie was yet to

find the funding for the project,

he would like to see it completed

by the end of the year.

He said there has been one

death in the irrigation canal and

the aim of his project is to move

people away from the dangerous

structure.

In 2012, Ashleigh Kumar

died while swimming in the

irrigation pond when she was

dragged facedown beneath a

narrow underwater gateway

leading from the storage pond

to the river.

Every warning sign at the

canal had been vandalised the

day Miss Kumar and her friends

visited, but they have since been

replaced.

In spite of Miss Kumar’s

death, Mr Leslie said people are

still swimming in the area.

He said there was potential

for Environment Canterbury

and the district council to put

more fencing around the canal

structure.

Car parking, picnic areas,

toilets and native plantings are

included in the plan for the

kayaking facility and swimming

hole.

Another reason for the plan

was so kayakers did not have to

travel as far to train. Mr Leslie

said kayakers have a long way to

travel with the Hurunui River

being the closest training venue.

The idea has been supported

by the kayaking community.

Kirwee kayaker Ross McLeod

said it would be an excellent

spot for the facility.

“There are not many swimming

holes for teenagers to go

really,” he said.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Would

you use the new kayaking

facility at Thompsons Rd?

Email your views to georgia.

oconnor@starmedia.kiwi

In Brief

SHEFFIELD FENCE

Sheffield will get a chain fence

beside the railway line to stop

motorists backing into a ditch.

The Sheffield/Waddington

Community Committee approved

fencing the area last week. The

district council’s disposals and

leasing manager Rob Allen said

a contractor has been instructed

to install the fence. However,

this requires final approval from

KiwiRail.

CENTRE OPENING

A celebration for the opening

of the Dunsandel Community

Centre will be held on Friday. The

new facility replaces the original

Dunsandel Community Hall after

it was damaged beyond repair

in the 2010/2011 earthquakes.

The opening will be attended

by Mayor Sam Broughton,

MP for Selwyn Amy Adams

and Dunsandel Community

Committee chairman Russell

Dalzell.

PLAYCENTRE TO MOVE

The Hororata Playcentre is

planning to move behind

the Hororata Fire Station

on Bealey Rd. District council

property and commercial

manager Douglas Marshall

is completing a time frame to

make sure the land is safe and

uncontaminated.

Hannah Bates

Emotional medal for up-and-coming

Lincoln resident Hannah

Bates returned home

from the Commonwealth

Youth Games in the

Bahamas last week. The

17-year-old swimmer

competed in five different

events and won a bronze

medal in the 100m

butterfly. She talks to

Gordon Findlater

Congratulations on winning

bronze in the Bahamas. What

was it like on the podium

receiving your medal?

I was crying. When I shook

the man’s hand I held in the

emotion, and then when I

received the medal I started

crying. When we turned and

watched the flags rise it was just

amazing. I’m not sure how to

describe it, it was like nothing

I’ve ever felt before.

What was it like in the

pool when you realised you’d

finished third?

I turned for the 50m mark and

I could hear everybody yelling

and screaming, so I realised

something must be good. I

touched fourth and pinned the

other girl back in the final 50m.

BACK HOME: Hannah Bates at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre with the medal she won in the Bahamas.

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

When I touched the wall at the

end I was thinking ‘oh my gosh

have I done it’ and then I looked

and saw the times. The New

Zealand team were yelling and

screaming, I hopped out of the

water and everyone came and

gave me a hug.

What was the games village

like?

All of the countries stayed

together in the same hotel and

each country had a different

level. We decorated the hallways

and had big stickers on the

windows, so everyone knew we

were on level five.

Were there any other

countries that you got along

well with?

We actually got along really

well with England. We sat next to

them at the pool and we traded a

lot of our uniform with them.

Did you get much down time

in the Bahamas?

After the game we went

snorkelling with turtles and the

coral fish. I was kind of like the

film Finding Nemo, there were so

many different bright coloured

fish. It was amazing, the water

was so clear and blue. We were

lucky enough to touch the turtles

and were swimming along them

as they were doing their thing.

It was pretty incredible and

something I had on my bucket

list.

The New Zealand team had

a big welcome home party at

Auckland Airport. What was it

like being part of that?

There were cameras and

TV crews everywhere. We

just walked through the doors

and everyone started yelling,

cheering and saying how proud

of us they were. It made me feel

so lucky to be a part of this

country.

swimming star

How did you get into

swimming and how long have

you been doing it now?

I first started swimming when

I was six months old. Mum and I

did the mother/baby lessons and

I first started competitive swimming

when I was 10-years-old.

Where you always successful

from day one?

No. It’s been a big learning process,

I started off at the bottom of

the rankings when I was younger

and I’ve just slowly started working

my way up. Hopefully I can

keep progressing forward.

Was there a point when

you realised swimming was

something you wanted to take

quite seriously?

In 2012 I was also doing

rhythmic gymnastics and I went

to nationals and won gold for

my age group. I also went to the

national junior champs that year

and won gold there as well. After

that I realised I just wanted to

do swimming and make that my

career.

What keeps you busy outside

of swimming?

It’s just swimming really. I

wake up in the morning, go to

training, go to school, come

home, go to training and then it’s

nearly bed time by the time I’m

WILD WEATHER: Bates and a

teammate stand on the beach

as a storm approaches. Thunderstorms

and an outdoor

pool caused some races to be

postponed in the Bahamas.

home at night.

How does that work for

having a social life?

My friends are amazing.

They’re really understanding,

they know I can’t be out late at

night because I’ve got to go to

training the next day. It is hard,

especially with getting older now

and a lot of people are wanting to

go out late at night and having to

say no all the time. I think after

school is done I will be able to

have more of a social life.

Do experiences like the

Commonwealth Youth Games

make it worth it?

Definitely. I’ve made so many

new friends from going there and

I know that swimming is going to

make me plenty of good friends

in the future.

What are the plans going

forward?

I will be going to the Commonwealth

Games trials in December.

Next year is Junior Pan Pacific

Championships which are in Fiji

and Oceania Championships in

Papua New Guinea. Beyond that

I’m looking at the 2020 Tokyo

Olympics, but that may not happen

because I’ll only be 20 by

then.

You train at the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre, has that made

life easier being closer to Lincoln?

Yes. I used to commute to

Jelly Park every day and then

when the Selwyn Aquatic Centre

opened it was a no-brainer to go

there. It’s only a 10min drive to

the pool now rather than what

would normally be a 20min drive

into town, plus traffic.

$100k for Maddie

•From page 1

“It was a fantastic night and it

was great because everybody got

to laugh,” she said.

The auction items included

two dinners with politicians,

which raised $10,000 each –

pre-dinner drinks with Prime

Minister Bill English before a

dinner with Selwyn MP Amy

Adams and a dinner with Winston

Peters.

Radio and television personality

Gary McCormick, former

All Black Andrew Mehrtens,

Invercargill mayor Tim Shadbolt

and actors Blair Strang and

Shane Cortese made up a lineup

of personalities who took

part in a light-hearted debate to

support the evening.

The debate was over why Mr

Shadbolt should or shouldn’t be

prime minister.

Maddie was presented on the

night with a $10,000 cheque

from The Lamar Charitable

Trust.

Two pillowcases sewn by

Maddie as a fundraiser, which

she usually sells for $20, were

auctioned for $2000 on the

night.

The pillowcases also caught

the attention of the management

team at the new Novotel

Christchurch Airport, which is

set to open early next year, and

they offered to buy 200 of them.

Hotel general manager Olivier

Lacoua said he planned to give

the pillowcases as a gift to the

hotel’s corporate clients, along

with a card explaining Maddie’s

story and linking to her fundraising

pages.

He said his team was

impressed Maddie was not

just asking for money, but had

created something unique to

sell.

“The main thing is supporting

a local girl. We are more than

happy to assist as part of

the community, all working

together to hopefully help her to

get treatment,” he said.

Mrs Manson-Collins said she

was confident enough money

would be raised to get Maddie

the treatment.

Organiser Joanne McMaster

said the fundraiser was amazing

and there was so many people

who got behind the evening.

“This little girl just touches

you, when you meet her . . . it

is really daunting to think they

have to raise $750,000,” Miss

McMaster said.

Setback in bid to make

New York marathon

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

NOTHING HAS ever

stopped paraplegic Ian

Walker from taking on

enduring marathons – in

spite of having his fair

share of knock-backs.

He can be seen training

on his hand-bike every

second day in Ellesmere.

However, he was

denied entry in the

Christchurch Marathon for

seven years due to safety

concerns.

After being the first

person to hand-bike the

Buller Gorge Marathon

this year, the Doyleston

resident was finally

given entry into June’s

Christchurch event.

Now he is gearing up

for his biggest race yet

– the New York City

Marathon.

Through disability

support organisation

Achilles International, Mr

Walker has been selected

to take part in the event in

November.

But he has had another

setback, having the

sponsorship for his trip to

the Big Apple cut.

The company Mr Walker

did not wish to name, was

going to cover most of the

costs for the trip.

“These things happen,

there is not much they

can do . . . I have just

got try raise that money

somewhere else,” he said.

As well as fundraising

Mr Walker plans to raise

awareness of serious brain

injuries, co-occurring

with spinal cord injuries,

on social media through

the three long-distance

rides he is taking part in.

Mr Walker became a

paraplegic in 2006 after he

crashed into the back of a

truck between Napier and

Hastings.

Before then, he was a

nationally ranked soccer

referee.

Highlights were

refereeing the 1999

Chatham Cup final and

the 2003 New Zealand

National Soccer League.

He had also competed in

nine marathons.

Mr Walker suffered a

fracture dislocation of his

third and fourth thoracic

vertebrae, fractured a

spinal segment in his neck,

broke his sternum, had

facial injuries and lost

several teeth.

But Mr Walker’s greatest

concerns is he was never

treated for a brain injury.

“I did fly head first into

the back of a truck and

I can’t remember the

accident,” he said.

Mr Walker said he often

gets tired, his short-term

memory is not the best and

can get irritable.

He is planning to see a

occupational therapist next

week.

But he is determined

spread the message, there

is a life after being made a

paraplegic.

“Being in a wheelchair

doesn’t mean your life

stops, it just means your

life takes a different path

really,” he said.

out of seven of the national

competition’s bacon and ham

awards.

The competition had more

than 200 entries.

The butchery took out silver

for its boneless ham, bone-in

ham, dry cured middle bacon

and shoulder bacon, and bronze

for its middle eye bacon.

Owner Chris Brown said it was

the first time the butchery had

received a medal in the bacon

category.

In previous years, the butchery

has won an array of awards

including supreme, gold, silver

and bronze.

“Every bacon and ham product

we produce is an award-winning

product and we have awards in

every bacon and ham category,”

Mr Brown said.

Mr Brown, who has been a

butcher for more than 30 years,

and his wife Sue took over the

butchery in 2006.

Before then, Mr Brown

who describes himself as a

“passionate cook”, had done a

lot of commercial cooking in

Christchurch, while Mrs Brown

had run several Robert Harris

cafe businesses.

Mr Brown said there was

something about the Ellesmere

Butchery that just “grabbed him”

when it first came up for sale.

The family took a risk by

buying the butchery, and Mr and

Mrs Brown moved with their

children into the Leeston area.

At the end of 2015, the shop

was put on the market, but the

Browns could not find the right

people to take over the business.

“I don’t want the skills I have

built up to go to waste. I want to

pass that on . . . hopefully, the

legacy of this shop continues,”

he said.

Until they find the right

people, the Browns will continue

to run the butchery.

As for the next competition,

if the opportunity arises, Mr

Brown hopes to take up the role

of being a judge.

‘It would be so good to see

what the other butchers are

doing,” he said.

Rolleston residents

being driven potty

• By Andrew King

ROLLESTON residents

are being driven potty by a

large hole in the road and

now have taken matters

into their own hands.

The hole, which was

made worse by the recent

rain, is on the side of Masefield

Drive and has grown

so large that vehicles have

their tyres popped and

rims wrecked.

Resident Kirsty Lee lives

across the road from the

hole and was sick of hearing

motorists being caught

out by it, so she put a road

cone beside it to warn of

the danger.

In a Facebook post on a

Rolleston community page

she said: “Sorry Naylor

Love, but we borrowed

your cone and placed it

here to save tyres.”

More than 200 people

have reacted to the

Facebook post including

commenting on their own

experiences.

One person posted: “I hit

WARNING: A resident has placed a road cone near

a large hole in a Rolleston road to warn motorists of

the danger.

this and blew too new tyres

and cracked a rim.”

However, a small battle is

emerging to keep the cone

near the hole.

Ms Lee placed the cone

there on Tuesday night but

found it gone in the morning

so she put it back on

Thursday night.

Her flatmate said the

cone was still there on

Friday.

“Next time it’s moved I’ll

leave a polite letter then the

council can take it upon

themselves and will be left

with many tyre bills to

pay,” she said.

She said nearly every car

hits it and other neighbours

have filled it with

gravel in the past to try to

make it safer.

New shopping centre planned for Lincoln

Work is underway on a new shopping centre

for Lincoln, with ground works currently being

carried out at the site on the corner of Edward

Street and Eastfield Drive.

There will be seven shops and a restaurant in

the new Rosemerryn shopping centre.

Developed by the Merryn Group, the idea

behind the complex was sparked by Lincoln

locals who expressed a need for more hospitality

and retail outlets in the town, to complement

existing providers.

Covering one hectare of land and fronting onto

one of the main routes into Lincoln, this high

profile corner site will no doubt be attractive to

a wide range of commercial and retail operators.

SELWYN TIMES

With a growing residential base and limited

retail space the complex will be suitable for a

variety of service providers whether fashion,

homeware or professionals such as a medical

practice, physiotherapists, dental surgery,

beauticians or hairdressers. The centre’s close

proximity to the rail trail also makes it a perfect

location for a bicycle hire or servicing operation.

The purpose built restaurant that will front

Edward Street, will work for a range of

hospitality options from fine dining through to

ethnic or a more casual place to unwind and

enjoy a coffee, meal or drink.

Flex Fitness gym, a new brand to Canterbury

has already signed up. This 24 hour gym with

an upmarket fit-out has some of the best fitness

equipment available and offers competitive

rates.

Construction of the Rosemerryn shopping

centre is being carried out by Hanham and

Philp Contractors, with the complex due for

completion early in February 2018.

The building itself will cover 1,600 square

metres with varied retail outlet space ranging

from 80 to 350 square metres.

The developers have chosen a traditionally

rural look to reflect Lincoln’s tradition, with

the chosen design a contemporary style barn

while the interior will have a modern, trendy

and open industrial architectural appearance.

Constructed from textured concrete slab the

buildings will have insulated panel roofing with

exposed steel beams.

From Edward Street, a bridge will provide

pedestrian access with car parking off Eastfield

Drive. Native plants will line the street frontage

and feature in areas around the complex. There

will also be plenty of bicycle parking.

The shopping centre will bask in sun with the

restaurant having a large dining area flowing

to an attractive outdoor courtyard making it a

suitable venue for individuals and groups.

The restaurant’s large dining area will flow out to an outdoor courtyard.

Car parking will be off Eastfield Drive.

Businesses looking to break into the Lincoln

market will find the new Rosemerryn shopping

centre very appealing.

If wanting to learn more, contact Paula Raine

at Ray White Commercial or Mary Cooper

Estate, who are looking after the marketing

of this exciting new commercial and retail

development.

Reserve status changing

Rolleston

Reserve

Management

Committee

chairman

Jens

Christensen

writes about

the district

council declining its

request to manage Foster

Park

The Rolleston Reserve

Management Committee has

been delegated the management

and maintenance of Rolleston

Reserve, Brookside Park and the

Foster Dog Park by the district

council.

Very unfortunately, the district

council declined to allow the

committee the right to manage

Foster Park and this duty has

fallen to council managers and

subcontracted maintenance

works.

This is in total opposition to

the strong request from the management

committee to manage

Foster Park and in essence the

ratepaying people of Rolleston

(who have funded the development

and ongoing maintenance)

have no voice in its operation or

running.

The committee is made up of

public representatives and all of

the sports codes and user groups

using the three reserves that it

manages.

The committee also manages

its full-time and part-time caretaking

staff who are responsible

for grounds bookings, cleaning

on a daily basis three public toilets

(365 days per year), turf care,

weed spraying, tree trimming,

vandalism and rubbish collection

and disposal.

We always welcome members

of the public to sit on our committee

and assist with the governance

of the reserves.

The list of users is almost

endless but includes rugby (482

players), dog club (120 members),

scouts (141 members plus 20

leaders), playcentre, athletics (210

members), netball (340 members),

tennis, cricket, softball,

baseball, rugby league, summer

touch rugby.

Also the grounds regularly

host cancer relay for life, school

athletic sports, teddy bear

picnics, circus, and the Selwyn

Sports Trust combined primary

schools eight week winter sports.

Rolleston Reserve houses

the youth park and along with

Brookside Park a junior playground.

Rolleston Reserve’s status is

changing to make way for the

new Town Centre Master Plan

(all of the fields fronting Tennyson

St will disappear), and as

such we are unable to plan for

the extension of the youth park

at this time.

The youth park is an important

place for youth to hang out with

their peers and away from their

parents and siblings.

While there is a destination

playground and youth park being

built at Foster Park, the youth

facility in Rolleston Reserve will

continue to be of tremendous

importance as it will always be in

the centre of the commercial area

and close to the shops.

CLUTTERED: A large pile of rubbish dumped on Finlays Rd,

West Melton, is one of several reports of fly-tipping received

by the district council in the past month.

We said

The rubbish collection

system is under scrutiny as

the district council works

to stop illegal rubbish

dumping

You said

Debbie Goldsmith

– Rubbish dumping is far too

expensive in New Zealand. I’m

not surprised there is fly-tipping

. . . it’s not a case of people being

lazy, simply not being able to afford

to dump their rubbish.

Heather Wilkins – We go to

the dump and we pay. Recycling

is free. Its not like people go to

the dump everyday unless you

are a business. Never heard of

the word fly-tipping before.

John White – I see so much

rubbish along the side of the

roads in the country these days

and most of it is from people

eating a snack then leaving their

rubbish on the grass berm. Time

to put a stop to these people that

think this is okay.

Major upgrade to Russley Road/Memorial Avenue intersection

The Russley Road/Memorial Avenue temporary roundabout will be removed

in early August and replaced with a new intersection with traffic lights.

EXPECT

DELAYS

4-6 AUG

The permanent change means traffic will be able to

travel to and from Christchurch International

Airport, under the new Gateway Bridge, for the first

time. It will also allow the project team to complete

the new road on top of the bridge, bringing them a

step closer to completing the upgrade.

New road signage

People travelling through the intersection will

need to pay close attention to the new signage

to ensure their vehicle is in the right lane.

Please be courteous to other drivers who will

also be getting used to the change.

Lengthy delays at Russley Road/Memorial Avenue intersection

While this is an exciting milestone there will be delays

of up to 20 minutes while the changes take place on

4-6 August.

If you’re travelling to the airport leave extra time to get

there or take an alternative route to avoid the work site.

People coming from the north can turn off at

Harewood Road and those coming from the south can

use the new Southern Airport Access (see map).

•From page 13

Fiona Ward – I agree that

dump charges are probably too

high. But the fact is that you

are responsible for your stuff.

Nobody else. When people dump

stuff – whether it is great piles of

stuff or throwing their Maccas

packets out the window – they

are saying: “It is somebody else’s

job to deal with my stuff”. As

long as we “blame” someone else

for things (i.e dump fees) people

will never take responsibility for

their own anything.

Christine Clarke – Put

dumping fees down and see

what happens. Or give everyone

a big red bin like the big yellow

one. But if you put prices down,

rubbish may be dumped at

the dump and not anywhere

else.

Christine Schuler – Perhaps

if it wasn’t so expensive to go to

the dump. There will always be

some lazy sods, though.

Lee Nicholls – Make the

fine more relevant, like $20,000.

There’s nothing accidental or

even careless about this. It’s a

deliberate and planned thing.

Elvira Eilbeck – Cameras

and signs to let them know they

are being filmed and instant

fines.

Ryan Nield – I hate how

people do this but at the same

time it doesn’t take long to fill all

three bins and dumping is way

too expensive.

Anna Henderson – This

infuriates me. Glad to see

something being done.

Pauline Sigurgeirson – At

least they weighed it down.

We said

Only seven incidents of

graffiti have been reported

to the district council in the

past year

You said

Cherry Cornelius – I find

that hard to believe. Our area has

been slammed with the untidy

mess taggers have left behind –

fences, power poles, gates, power

boxes, and especially local shops.

On our 30min walk today, we

came across several tags painted

on to the footpath outside a

group of shops on Warrington

St. I really dislike how untidy

and dirty this practice makes our

community look.

Ben Mataakama – I’d like to

develop a programme for taggers

to turn their tags into beautiful

typography illustrations.

Emajane Harwood – I

bet people will start tagging in

Selwyn now that they’ve seen

this.

A reader responds to

the Selwyn Times article

about the ongoing saga

over whether the Black

Door Bar and Eatery can

wheel-clamp unauthorised

vehicles which use its

parking spaces

Nyki McQueen – As a

Lincoln resident and potential

customer of Black Door Bar

and Eatery, I fully support

the clamping signs. If I am

going there for dinner, I want

somewhere to park.

From all accounts the parks

are on the title of the property,

and under liquor licensing laws,

the establishment has to provide

a number of parks to satisfy its

licence.

The district council deserves

scrutiny, not this business, as this

is more about the district council

and its ridiculous cycle lane and

taking public parking from the

main street which no one wants.

My bet is the district council

was counting on these parks

and Black Door has got in its

way by standing up for its rights.

We need to get behind our local

businesses and support them,

not run them down over such a

pathetic issue.

A reader responds to an

article about the district

council increasing its

funding for the Lakeside

Soldiers Memorial Hall

rebuild

Ross Watson – Lakeside

Soldiers Memorial Hall

should be rebuilt with the

increased funding in line with

other communities’ rebuilds

Cashing in on the comedy show

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

COMMUNITY groups are

laughing all of the way to the

bank thanks to the Live in

Lincoln Comedy Night.

Some of New Zealand’s top

comedians will be travelling to

the township to take the stage

for an evening of comedy at the

Lincoln Event Centre.

Comedians Ben Hurley, Paul

Ego, Michele A’Court, Jeremy

Elwood and Gish will star in the

show.

The organisers behind the

show are giving a selection of

Selwyn high schools, primary

schools and community groups

the opportunity to fundraise for

their organisations.

Organiser and Lincoln

resident David Parlane said

for every ticket sold by the

community group, organisers

are donating $5 back to it.

“If someone sells 100 tickets,

they make $500 . . . it is just

another way to give back to the

community,” he said.

Mr Parlane said tickets for the

comedy show are “ripping out

the door” at the moment.

The event was first launched

last year with nearly 1000 people

attending the night featuring

comedians TV3’s Seven Days

Bid to get

Glentunnel

cycleway

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PETITION signed by 30

residents has been put forward

in a bid to have a cycleway

constructed in the Glentunnel

area.

A loop cycleway starting and

finishing in Glentunnel and

covering Glenroy, Hororata and

Coalgate was presented to the

Malvern Community Board last

week.

It was presented by board

member Karen Meares.

Board chairwoman Jenny

Gallagher said while she can see

a lot of benefits for the cycleway,

there is a lot of work yet to go into

the planning of the project.

Darfield resident Ross Fowler,

who cycles in the area, said it

would make the roads safer for

cyclists.

“Traffic and tourists are not so

good on overtaking cyclists

. . . there hasn’t really been an

accident but I am sure there will

be one day,” he said.

His wife, Maria agreed and said

a lot of people are scared of traffic.

She said it was a great idea for

encouraging people to get out on

their cycles.

“Now I can hear!

It’s exciting.

Really exciting.”

Carol is looking forward to a

lifetime of healthy hearing with the

help of the team at Bay Audiology.

Selwyn on verge of first ever

promotion to the top flight

• Gordon Findlater

SELWYN UNITED need just

a draw against Christchurch

United at Foster Park tonight

to secure promotion into the

Mainland Premier League for the

first time in the club’s history.

Their 3-2 win over Halswell

United at the weekend means

with four rounds remaining,

Selwyn are 10 points clear of

second place Christchurch.

“This has been the goal since

the start of the season. There’s

been a few sleepless nights as

we’ve got closer to realising that,”

said Selwyn coach Lee Padmore.

The fixture was originally

meant to be played on July 22 but

was rescheduled due to flooding.

The conditions during Saturday’s

win over Halswell weren’t

much better. Halswell Domain

was still recovering from the

recent run of bad weather.

“It was horrendous,” said Padmore.

“The conditions took us a bit by

surprise and we found ourselves

1-0 down and struggling to get

out of our own half early in the

game.”

Selwyn eventually adapted and

found their mojo, scoring three

goals in the space of 15min to

lead 3-1 at the break.

Jamie Corrodus scored their

first, converting from the penalty

spot. Selwyn’s second and third

STRIKE: Aidan Barbour-Ryan scored one of Selwyn’s three

goals in their win over Halswell at the weekend.

goals both came from counter

attacks through Dan Ede and

Aidan Barbour-Ryan.

In the second half, it didn’t take

long for Selwyn’s comfortable

lead to disappear.

“I thought we were cruising.

Then we conceded a silly goal

from a set piece and found

ourselves down to 10 men with

30min to go,” said Padmore.

“It was a difficult day for

defenders with the conditions

and we really had to sit back and

grind it out late.”

The team are hoping for a

strong show of support at Foster

Park tonight for what could be a

day to remember at the club for

many years to come.

SATURDAY’S Ellesmere rugby

final between Darfield and

Southbridge will be a special

occasion for the McIlroy

brothers Blair and Scott.

Blair has played club rugby at

Darfield since a junior and will

play his 200th first grade match

for the club in Saturday’s final.

His brother Scott brought up

his 200th game last month for

the club.

“Blair’s played for Darfield his

entire life other than a couple of

years in England,” said Darfield

co-coach Alex Robertson.

“Lifting the Coleman Shield

would be a pretty awesome way

to bring up 200 I reckon.”

Milestone final for

season with four trophies in the

cabinet alive with a 33-7 win

over Prebbleton at the weekend,

while Darfield will hope to win

their first ever Coleman Shield

after accounting for Waihora

24-13 on Saturday.

Darfield and Southbridge met

earlier in the year in roundrobin

play.

Southbridge took the honours

21-10 on that occasion.

“It will be business as usual

this week. We want to come

into the game physically and

mentally fresh. It’s always going

to be tough against Southbridge

and they’re probably the favourites

coming into the game,” said

Robertson.

Darfield got off to a slow

start in their semi-final against

Waihora and quickly found

themselves down 6-0.

and other arts projects.

Application forms and criteria information are available on the

Council website www.selwyn.govt.nz or by contacting the Selwyn

District Council scheme administrator Stuart Westoby on 347 2708

or stuart.westoby@selwyn.govt.nz

The closing date for the Creative NZ – Creative Communities

Scheme funding applications is Friday 25 August 2017.

The big blue

mobile library will

soon be rolling

into Faringdon.

From Thursday 3 August the Mobile Library will be stopping

at Faringdon to support this new community and ensure that

library services continue to be highly accessible.

The inaugural stop will take place outside the South Point

Retail Centre between 11.40am and 12.10pm. A free HotPick

or DVD will be on offer for residents who come to look at the

“It’s an exciting time for Faringdon residents. It’s great to be able to offer access to library services

on their door step,” says Selwyn District Council Mobile Library Officer Ange Grigg.

The Mobile Library offers a free service for all library members. You can join online or on the bus

(with ID and proof of address).

For further information contact Ange, our friendly Mobile Library Officer, on 021 773 400 or ask at

any Selwyn Library.

On the roads this week

The intersection of Hoskyns Road and Sandy Knolls Road is being

upgraded and a change of priority will occur this month 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.

Cattlestop cleaning and ford reinstatement is occurring on

Algidus Road. Flooding repairs will be occurring at various areas

across the district.

Slip removal and repair work is continuing on Malvern Hills Road.

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 31 July the CSM2 project team continue to fell trees

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

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

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

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

Dog bylaw – we want your opinion

We’re looking to offer more spaces for you to take your furry friend to run around – and we’re looking for

your feedback.

The Council is now undertaking public consultation on changes to its Dog Bylaw, which include the

addition of several new areas where off-leash exercise is permitted, and additions to the list of schools

and other locations where dogs are prohibited.

Proposed new off-leash exercise areas include Foster Park (Rolleston), Leeston Dog Exercise Area,

McHughs Forest Park, Preston Avenue Reserve (West Melton), Coalgate Recreation Reserve, Dryden

Reserve (Rolleston), Edendale Reserve, Waihora Domain (Motukarara), and Westview Park (Darfield).

Schools added to the list of areas prohibited to dogs include Rolleston College, West Rolleston School,

and Lemonwood Grove School, along with the Darfield and Prebbleton skate parks.

More information is available at all Council service centres and libraries and on the Council’s website

www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay

The Council wants to hear your views on the draft policy. The consultation period finishes on Friday 8

September 2017. You can make your submission online or by emailing submissions@selwyn.govt.nz

You can also post your submission to: The Regulatory Manager, Selwyn District Council, Dog Control

Bylaw Appendices 2 and 3 Amendments, P O Box 90, Rolleston.

Report a pothole

Potholes breed like rabbits in the rain!

After the recent flooding across the district you may have

noticed an increased number of potholes appearing on

Selwyn roads. Council staff are working to fix these but

with around 2,500 kilometres of roads in Selwyn it’s hard

for staff to stay on top of every stretch of road.

You can help us by reporting a pothole to our team so

that we are aware of it and can then take steps to repair

it. There are a number of ways you can do this.

If you have a smartphone you can download a free app

called Snap, Send, Solve. This app is very simple to use,

it asks you to take a photo of the pothole or other issue,

it then identifies the location using the phone's GPS

data and sends an email to the Council from your email

address, including the incident type, notes, address of

incident, photo, and contact details. The report is then

allocated to the relevant Council department who will

take the appropriate action.

You can also report a pothole by filling out a Helpline

form on our website at www.selwyn.govt.nz/contact-us/

helpline. This form asks you for details about your issue

and your contact details so that Council can let you know

when the issue is resolved. You can also call our Helpline

on 347 2800 and speak to our friendly staff.

Rates rebates applications for eligible Selwyn ratepayers will open from Monday 14 August.

The rates rebate scheme is a nationwide programme which provides a rebate of up to $620 for low

income earners who were paying rates for the home in which they were living on 1 July 2017.

Rebates are calculated on total household income, the level of rates and the number of dependants.

The income limit for a rebate is $24,790 although ratepayers with income over this amount may still be

entitled to a rebate depending on their total rates cost and number of dependents.

A rates rebate calculator and example tables are available on the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA)

website: www.ratesrebates.govt.nz. Application forms are available from the DIA website, or from Council

service centres. You will be asked to provide accurate information about your income, and that of any

Tim WraighT and Ché VinCenT

- Changing STorieS -

Both Tim Wraight and Ché Vincent live in the Motueka region in the top of the

South Island, an area of diverse landscapes and environments from which to

draw inspiration for their work.

Tim’s carved wooden work for ‘Changing Stories’ exhibition explores the

traditions associated with the reverence given to relics and remains, using

the cultural practices of making intricate containers that different cultures

fashion to hold these precious objects, Maori wakahuia (treasure boxes)

and wakatupapaku (bone boxes) and European reliquaries which held the

bones of saints, are the starting point for these pieces. Found remains of

creatures and objects from the natural environment in his home area. Tim

has constructed stories around fictional and whimsical; taking an object and

giving it a new narrative and honouring its previous existence.

Ché’s work for this exhibition is formed by his

passion for botany and natural processes;

exploring the patterns created by plant forms

by the way water changes and repeats a flow

pattern by decay and renewal. He uses recycled

copper panels through a process of serendipitous

experimentation. Ché has developed a fluid and

intuitive approach and has developed methods of

melting, beating, bending, and fusing copper into organic forms. Copper is a lovely

metal to work with; malleable and enduring with a beautiful cast of warm colours.

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

VESPULA WASPS are

probably one of the most

hated species around the

house, on a picnic, or walking

through a beech forest.

There are two species

of Vespula wasps in New

Zealand, the German

wasp (Vespula germanica)

and the common wasp

(Vespula vulgaris), which

arrived in New Zealand in

1945 and 1978 respectively.

At this time of the year

it’s not uncommon to

discover a Vespula queen

wasp overwintering in the

wood heap in a hibernating

state.

Their striped black and

yellow appearance is unmistakable

and is a warning

that can be backed up

STING: The Vespula wasps’ black and yellow

appearance is unmistakable and a warning that can

be backed up by a painful sting. ​

by a painful sting.

The two species can be

distinguished by markings

on the head – the common

wasp has a black anchor

shape on its face, which

is absent on the German

wasp.

They nest in the ground,

in trees or in buildings

and could contain between

5000 to 10,000 wasps.

New Zealand beech

forests in the Nelson area

have the highest recorded

densities of the wasps in

the world, with an average

of 12 nests per hectare.

The highest number of

nests is 60 per hectare,

which equates to 30 nests

on a rugby field.

The biomass of wasps in

a beech forest (3.8kg/ha)

is more than all the native

birds.

Beech forests support

large densities of these

exotic wasps because the

trees are host to a native

scale insect that produces

large amounts of sugary

honeydew that the wasps

harvest to the detriment

of our native birds and

insects.

The wasps also prey on

insects and chicks in nests.

BLACK AND

YELLOW:

Vespula

wasps

nest in the

between

5,000 to

wasps.

Driven

Hilux dressed up for visual appeal

• By Ross Kiddie

IT’S BECOME a matter of

course, if you sell the traditional

double-cab utility in the New

Zealand market, at some point

there will be a limited production

run of dress-up models.

The light commercial market is

New Zealand’s most buoyant and

those who do sell utes also have

a large range of accessories and

after-market kits which you can

use to personalise your vehicle.

Toyota have had a succession

of upmarket Hilux utes over

the years, the latest to come my

way was a full Toyota Racing

Development, four-wheel-drive,

double cab, and being less

muscular that some of its competitors,

it is a tasteful example of

what can be done to make a ute

look sporty.

I’m quite familiar with TRD

product, a few years ago I purchased

a suspension set for my

Toyota and I can report the

gear is high quality and well

engineered. The fender flares,

honeycomb grille, nudge bar and

big wheels fitted to the base SR5

Hilux look like they are an integral

part of the vehicle. The package

also consists of a motorised

deck cover which, according to

Toyota, is a New Zealand first.

Of course, there’s no gear to

make the ute any quicker or

TOYOTA HILUX TRD: Big wheels and body kit.

handle differently, the inclusions

are cosmetic value only, but it

certainly looks the part and gives

the new-generation Hilux added

flair. The TRD products are not

just confined to the exterior, on

the inside there are TRD-branded

floor mats.

Those items sit on top of a

well-specified machine in the

first instance, the TRD-spec vehicle

sits at $59,990 or $62,490 for

the automatic version.

Powering the TRD Hilux is the

new 2.8-litre turbocharged diesel

engine that Toyota rolled out for

the new series at the beginning of

last year. It is a fuel-friendly unit

for which Toyota claim a 7.6-litre

per 100km (37mpg) combined

cycle rating.

It is also listed with power

figures of 130kW and 450Nm,

the latter available all of the way

from 1600rpm to 2400rpm. It

has strong turbo boost and works

freely through the transmission.

Coupled to a six-speed manual,

there are short gaps between

gears which allows the engine to

work freely through the torque

spread. There’s also a push-button

power mode which enhances

throttle response.

The Hilux’s four-wheel-drive

system is operated by an in-cabin

dial device, the low ratio transfer

selection means immediate

crawl speed. I only used it for a

short forestry track burst near

Hororata, but I can report that

the TRD ute isn’t burdened by its

• Price – Toyota Hilux TRD,

$59,990

• Dimensions – Length,

height, 1815mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2755cc, 130kW, 450Nm,

six-speed manual.

• Fuel usage – 7.6l/100km

enhancements, the Hilux in this

form is still the formidable offroad

machine it has gained such

a high reputation for, its 286mm

of ground clearance figure is right

up there with its competitors.

The TRD Hilux has fabulous

suspension given its load bearing

characteristics. It’s very traditional

underneath with a leafspring

located live rear axle and

independent double wishbones

up front.

That mechanical aspect is

matched by the interior detailing.

The Hilux is very car-like inside,

the trim material and fittings are

first class.

On the road, the TRD Hilux

feels sprightly and eager, that taking

into account I only drove the

vehicle without load. The manual

shift works freely and clutch

action is light and progressive.

In rear-wheel-drive drive mode

it steers keenly into a corner and

there is relatively strong feedback

through the steering. The TRD

model rides on huge Maxxis

rubber (265/60 x 18in) and they

are quiet tyres which also help

provide solid feel through the

steering. There’s always a point

where you think oversteer would

develop if you accelerate keenly

through a corner, but there is a

five-star safety system in place

and the electronic traction and

stability control devices alleviate

that.

At 100km/h, the engine is

turning over at a lazy 1500rpm,

providing quiet motion and

impressive fuel usage, at that

speed it is sipping diesel instantaneously

at the rate of just

7l/100km (40mpg), which to my

way of thinking is good for a

vehicle which weighs in at over

two-tonne.

I have an acquaintance who

recently bought a double cab ute,

and the decision of what brand to

buy was based solely on what he

received in terms of extra items

made available on the vehicle.

That suggests to me that many

other buyers look at a purchase

the same way. If the TRD model

is no longer on Toyota’s books,

there are plenty of other options

and kits that will dress up Hilux.

Check out the Gladiator, it’s

about as bold as a ute can get.

Economic impact of weeds far

greater than estimated

The true cost of weeds to New Zealand’s

agricultural economy is likely to be far

higher than previous research would

suggest, according to a new study funded by

AgResearch.

AgResearch and Scion scientists worked

with economists from Lincoln University’s

Agribusiness and Economics Research Unit to

review the available published research on the

costs of weeds to New Zealand’s productive

land (for the pastoral, arable and forestry

sectors). That review reached a conservative

overall estimate of $1.658 billion a year (based

on 2014 costs).

“The research on weed costs done previously

used differing approaches, and the numbers

were sometimes outdated or contained

guesswork,” says AgResearch principal

scientist Dr Graeme Bourdôt.

“In addition, the estimate of $1.658b only

covers the few weed species – 10 of the 187

pasture weeds, some arable land weeds and

forestry weeds – that have been the subject

of research into their impacts. The focus has

largely been on the loss of production. The

substantial costs of weed control, such as the

use of herbicides, was not always considered,”

Dr Bourdôt says.

“Given all of these limitations, the true cost

of the weeds to the agricultural sector

is likely to be much higher than the

$1.658b estimate.”

The study looked at the economic

impact of some of the more

widespread and destructive weed

species such as gorse, broom, yellow

bristle grass and Californian thistle.

“We also developed a dynamic

approach for estimating the potential

costs of weeds that have not yet

realised their potential range in New

Zealand, taking account of possible

rates of spread, maximum geographic

extent and changes in consumer prices

for agricultural products,” Dr Bourdôt

says.

“This dynamic approach applied

to the Giant Buttercup weed in dairy

pastures indicates that this weed alone

would cost the dairy industry $592

million per year in lost milk solids

revenue if it were to spread across its

entire range over the next 20 years.”

“New Zealand has one of the highest levels

of invasion by introduced plant species in the

world, and there has always been a shortage of

information when it comes to their economic

costs on productive land.”

The Giant Buttercup is a potential

threat to the dairy industry

“Knowing more about these costs is

important to developing cost-effective ways to

tackle weeds, and in quantifying the benefits

of research aimed at keeping us ahead of the

game.”

New Zealand has one

of the highest levels of

invasion by introduced

plant species in the world

New animal welfare

regulations being

developed

Minister for Primary

Industries Nathan Guy has

confirmed 46 new animal

welfare regulations will be

developed this year.

“Changes we made to

the Animal Welfare Act

in 2015 have allowed us to

create directly enforceable

regulations. This has

given the Act more teeth,

and creates more tools to

deal with mistreatment of

animals,” Mr Guy says.

“These 46 regulations

include stock transport,

farm husbandry, companion and working

animals, pigs, layer hens and the way

animals are accounted for in research,

testing and teaching.

“These follow the Young Calf and Live

Animal Export regulations, which we fasttracked

and introduced last year. These

regulations contributed to a reduction of

more than 50 per cent in mortality rates for

bobby calves during the 2016 season.”

Last year, the Ministry for Primary

Industries consulted on 91 animal welfare

regulations and received more than

1400 submissions from a wide range of

individuals and organisations, all with

Minister for Primary

Industries Nathan Guy

different perspectives on

animal welfare.

MPI will now focus on

having the next 46 regulations

ready to be delivered by the

end of this year and to come

into effect before October

2018. The delayed lead-in

time will enable farmers,

processors, transporters and

others to ensure that their

systems are up and running

before the new regulations

take effect.

The remaining regulations

that were consulted on last

year will be considered in a third package

of work in 2018, for introduction in 2019.

“In 2014, New Zealand’s animal

welfare system was ranked first equal out

of 50 countries assessed by the global

animal protection charity World Animal

Protection,” Mr Guy says.

“Animal welfare is extremely important

to New Zealanders and to our international

consumers. We take good care of our

animals but one bad incident can damage

our reputation.

“That’s why these new regulations are

important, providing greater enforcement

and helping protect animals.”

Horticulture

health and safety

toolkit launched

Horticulture New Zealand has teamed

up with WorkSafe New Zealand to create

a health and safety toolkit specifically

designed for horticulture businesses.

“Managing health and safety in the

workplace is a critical issue for horticulture

businesses,” Horticulture New Zealand

chief executive Mike Chapman says.

“Keeping up with what is required is

something we can help growers with.

“Working with WorkSafe, we have been

able to customise a toolkit, called Keep

Safe, Keep Growing, which includes both

a written booklet and an easy-to-workthrough

online guide to help growers

identify and manage health and safety

risks.

“The guideline is targeted at those who

are responsible for the management of

health and safety in a horticulture business.

It covers the steps that growers should take

to build a health and safety system.

“Features include a guide for visitors to

a property, tools and training resources

for workers and contractors, and the

ability to create risk assessments for Good

Agricultural Practice (GAP) audits that are

part of many horticulture businesses.”

Horticulture New Zealand represents

5500 commercial fruit and vegetable

growers who employ 60,000 people. A

copy of the Keep Safe, Keep Growing guide

is being posted to all growers. Additional

copies will be available from Horticulture

New Zealand on request.

Gardening

Ripe raspberries reign supreme

• By Rachel Vogan

ONCE THE berry season starts

in summer, I check my crops for

ripening berries with a hawklike

intensity.

Many berries never make

it out of the garden; I find I

become quite selfish and would

rather sit scoffing handfuls of

the newly-ripened gems in the

garden than take them inside to

share.

While I love strawberries,

loganberries, and boysenberries,

to me raspberries will always

reign supreme.

Many people who visit and

wander my garden have no

idea that I grow raspberries,

in most part because they are

grown under a tight tent of

netting.

This contraption which,

admittedly, looks rather

like a prison, is an ugly but

highly effective deterrent to

both birds and my pet dog,

Stella, preventing them from

harvesting my berry bounty

before I can.

The best advice I can give

anyone who wants to enjoy a

heavy harvest of raspberries is

to invest in some sort of cropcover

to ensure you, rather than

the local wildlife, get first pick at

your crop.

INVENTIVE: Wine barrels are brilliant for growing raspberries.

Chicken wire netting keeps the birds and dogs at bay

TYPES OF RASPBERRIES

Raspberries are classified as

either summer – or autumnfruiting

types. Both grow in

exactly the same way, but fruit

at separate times on different

stem growth, meaning that

with clever planting, you can

be harvesting raspberries for

around four months of the

year.

The summer types produce

fruit on stems that have been

dormant throughout winter,

on what we call last season’s

growth. Because of this, it’s

important to know what sort

of raspberries you are planting,

as it can be easy to prune off

the flowering or fruiting wood

if you don’t know when your

plants fruit.

The autumn-fruiting varieties

produce their fruit on stems that

appear in the current season’s

stems or wood, meaning the

new stems that shoot up in

spring will mature into branches

that will support the autumn

fruit.

WHAT YOU NEED

TO KNOW

When to plant

Winter/spring.

Where to plant

Full sun.

Plant spacing

1m in garden beds, in

closer if planted in tubs.

Time to maturity

Will fruit within the first

season.

Where to buy

Garden centres and hardware

stores, specialist edible

nursery outlets.

SUMMER VARIETIES

Aspiring: Large, conical, firm

fruit and dark red in colour.

Excellent flavour.

Clutha: Medium-sized, tasty

fruit.

Ivory: A newer hybrid with

sweet, pale golden-yellow fruit.

Summer Surprise: Bright red

berries, upright plant habit,

reliable cropper.

Tulameen: High-yielding,

mid-summer variety, long

picking season. Canes are

virtually thornless, so picking is

very easy.

Waiau: This variety may fruit

in both summer and autumn;

large sweet berries appear on

old season woods and also on

the new growth.

AUTUMN VARIETIES

Autumn Bliss: A heavy

producer of large, red berries.

Ripens earlier than Heritage and

will ripen into late autumn.

Heritage: One of the best

with firm, tasty fruit, dark red

berries.

WHEN & WHERE

Where

Raspberries need full, all day

sun, but will cope with just

afternoon sun at a pinch. They

are happy in large tubs and

containers, and wine barrels

are a good size for two to three

plants.

Soil

They are not overly fussy in

the root department, so most

average loamy soils are fine,

although avoid sandy or heavy

clay soils as raspberries do not

thrive in dry or waterlogged

areas.

When

Winter and spring are great

times to plant.

Love Strawberries

Start planning now!

Strawberries are a kiwi favourite

and now is the time to get them

into the garden. Garden beds, raised

planters, pots, hanging baskets and

other containers are all great places

for these wee gems to grow. If you

don’t have an area at home to grow

them in the ground, head down to

your local garden supplies shop and

grab a pot or hanging basket. Make

sure you get top quality mix to plant

into – it will make a big difference to

the amount and quality of the fruit

you get from your plant. You don’t

need a mix that specifically says

“Strawberry Mix” on it, our Patio Plus

will give you excellent results, as will

our Tomato Mix, because these two

fruits have very similar nutritional

requirements. You can also use the

strawberry fertiliser (and vice versa)

if you have one and not the other. If

you are planting into the ground, mix

through some Organic Compost with

the soil that is there, if you are doing

a raised bed, you can use either Vege

Garden Mix, or Premium Potting Mix.

When it comes to planting

Make sure you give the plants space

to thrive. Dig a hole about 10cm

deep to ensure the roots become

well established and they can spread

out to get the essential nutrients and

water. Pat the soil firmly around the

plant once you have placed it in the

hole, water them in and put a layer

of peastraw or mulch on top (Super

Scree is great for this).

Pest control

As the plant begins to fruit, you will want to put some form of

protection over the plants to stop the birds getting the berries.

Use a mesh or wire cover so they still get air, water and sunlight.

Handy tip: don’t forget to feed them

through the growing season!

Checklist for selling your home

MAKE SMALL FIXES

Inspect your home with a buyer’s

eyes, and correct the flaws that are

most egregious (if affordable) or

can be relatively easily fixed—from

repairing cracks in the walkways

to repainting dingy walls or oiling

creaky hinges.

SET A PRICE

A real estate agent will give you a

market analysis free of charge or

commitment. Ask a few to get a

broader picture of the market, then

ask to see listings for properties

similar to yours that have sold

in the past six months. Check

out comparable listings yourself

in the real estate section of your

newspaper or on websites. Then

decide whether you want a quick,

easy sale or the highest possible

price.

CLEAN & DECLUTTER

Weed out excess furniture,

knicknacks, and “stuff ”—toss it,

donate it, give it away, sell it at a

yard sale, or put it into storage—so

the house seems more spacious and

buyers can imagine themselves in it.

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT

MAINTENANCE

From the moment you start

showing your house, keep the lawn

mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens

weeded, rooms spotless and

clutter-free.

READY YOUR HOME FOR

OPEN DAYS

Hide pocketable valuables,

display fresh flowers or bowls

of fruit, bake a batch of cookies

for the homey smell, open the

drapes, keep pets out of sight.

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO

YOUR OWN BUILDING

INSPECTION

It may save you time, especially

with older homes, to identify—

and potentially solve—problems

your buyer’s inspection will

discover later.

in the Selwyn District

Winter landscaping

tasks for a new build

Hard landscaping and ground preparation around a

new home can be started now.

Ground preparation – Prepare the ground by

spreading and levelling out top soil, spraying two or

three times to eradicate unwanted twitch couch grass and

weeds. Ready lawn can be laid though seed is best sown

in spring or autumn.

Outdoor wiring – Outdoor wiring for exterior garden

lighting, a water feature, spa pool or swimming pool may

not have been on the radar when the house was built.

Even if planned for the future, it is best to install the

wiring for these, before laying lawn and planting out the

garden.

Water features – Incorporate a pond, fountain or

waterfall for a relaxing spot in the garden. Their pumps

can be electrically wired, battery operated or solar

powered.

Irrigation system – An irrigation system can be fitted

at any stage. Having it in place before laying the lawn

will make it easier to water, aiding its survival. Irrigation

specialists are more available in winter so may offer a

better price.

Garden edging – Garden beds are more easily

maintained if edged. Macrocarpa, retaining blocks, old

bricks, stones, concrete curbing and recycled plastic

board roll are often used, with seamless materials

translating to less weeds growing in joints or cracks.

Constructing fencing, decks and paved areas – While

driveways and main paths are usually laid before house

completion, other paving and decks may still need to be

built so getting this work underway will provide areas

for relaxing outdoors on warm days with a free run for

planting and finalising landscaping come spring.

Decking may be built using treated pine, bamboo,

hardwood or a composite product with the cost and

durability varying between each. Apply for a permit if the

deck will be 1.5 metres or higher.

Seating and raised garden beds around the garden or

deck can also be constructed though planting may be left

until the spring nursery sales.

Creating shaded areas – Screens, fencing and pergolas

over outdoor courtyards and decks add interest and

provide structure for additional shading like blinds.

Alternatively, sun shades or awnings might be chosen

and with manufacturers often quieter at this time of year,

ordering now should guarantee delivery before summer.

Planting deciduous trees – Deciduous trees and

shrubs are dormant over winter so now is the perfect

time to get these into the garden. Prepare the ground with

compost and mulch so moisture is retained over summer.

Glasshouses and sheds – A garden shed or glasshouse

might be desirable. Kitset options are available at

hardware stores or one might be built to suit your setting.

Taking care of hard

landscaping and preparing

the ground for a lawn will

give you more time to get

out and enjoy the warmer

months ahead.

Pumps for water features may be electrically wired, battery

operated or solar powered.

Hardwood is a popular choice for decking.

Now is the time to plant deciduous trees.

Fencing, paving and installing irrigation can be constructed now.

Key reasons

to buy new

Buying new has many advantages. No one has

yet lived in your brand new home and it has that

new home smell and feel.

That doesn’t appeal to the villa crowd.

But many people dream of a home in a

new suburb.

There are many other advantages --

such as being able to customise the home

before it’s built. Buyers love it that their

build guarantee covers most things and

there’s little maintenance to do for the first

10 years.

There are a long list of reasons some

people dream of buying new.

They include:

• Current Building Code requirements

specify a higher standard of insulation

and glazing than you can expect in an

older home, which makes your new home

warmer in winter and cooler in summer,

meaning cheaper to run. In addition

there has been a vast improvement in the

quality and technology of construction

materials over the last decade.

• New homes are designed for modern

lifestyles with walk-in wardrobes, double

or triple car garaging, en suites and heat

pumps.

• Internal access garaging.

• Indoor-outdoor flow. Home builders

before the 1970s rarely thought about this.

• Automatic pool covers and electric

curtains are included in a lot of new

homes, he says.

• In a new subdivision you’re not going

to have five cross-leased small homes next

door to your architecturally designed fivebedroom

dream home, he says.

• New purpose-built shopping and

service centres cater for the modern life.

• New schools can be popular. New

schools are being designed with “Modern

Learning Environments”, which are

considered better layouts for 21st-century

learning.

Another important factor is it’s easier

to get a mortgage. New Reserve Bank of

New Zealand loan to value (LVR) ratio

restrictions from October 1 don’t relate

to new homes. Likewise the KiwiSaver

HomeStart grant is doubled for first time

buyers.

When it comes to new apartment

buildings they’re built to a higher

standard of earthquake/fire proofing and,

hopefully, are no longer leaky.

There are, of course, disadvantages to

buying new. Not everyone wants to wait

six or 12 months to move into their home.

Other downsides include:

• Borrowing to cover the progress

payments is more complex than taking

out a mortgage on an existing property.

• Builders and developers can go broke,

leaving the buyer in an awkward position.

• With some new homes the buyer

effectively needs to become a project

manager.

• You have to deal with council for

building and sometimes resource consent.

• The location may be further from the

centre than you wanted.

• If it’s infill housing you might have a

cross lease situation that some people find

tricky.

• There are often teething problems with

a new build.

• You won’t get a quaint tree-lined

street.

• Your section will most likely be

smaller than that of an existing home.

• Fences, paths and landscaping might

need to be added at a cost.

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.
