Car parking signs in spotlight

District council

starts review

as frustration

grows

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

CAR PARKING signage

across Selwyn is to come under

scrutiny.

A district council review will

determine how enforceable the

time-limit signs it has in place

actually are.

District councillors met last

week to discuss how car-parking

issues in high-usage business

areas are being handled.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the review will examine if the

signs are in the right locations,

if the time-limits need changing

and if signs are there for

historical reasons or not.

“Parking wardens were

discussed as one of the options

but first we want to get a stock

take of what the extent of our

current signage is and whether it

can be enforced,” he said.

The district council prefers to

take an educational approach

to change behaviours and

issues infringement notices if

necessary.

When asked by Selwyn

Times how many infringement

notices have been issued in

the past five years, the district

council did not have data

review is urgent.

available.

Mr Broughton said he was

not expecting to see a report on

signage until the end of the year.

Lincoln Club president and

Hammer Hardware owner Lynn

Townsend said the review is

urgently needed.

“They have got to do something.

The parking problem

is getting worse and worse in

Lincoln,” he said.

While Lincoln would

eventually need parking

wardens he wasn’t sure if it

was necessary yet.

It comes as more pressure is

put on car-parking in business

areas.

The Black Door Bar and Eatery

in Lincoln put up clamping and

tow away signs on council 120

minute restricted parking signs

outside its Robert St several

weeks ago.

The business and council

are in dispute over usage of 12

parallel car parks in Robert St.

The issue remains unresolved

and neither party will discuss

it with the Selwyn Times. The

clamping signs have been taken

down.

Mr Broughton said The Black

Door situation was not discussed

at Wednesday’s meeting.

District councillors Craig

Watson, John Morten and

Murray Lemon did not see the

need for enforcement in their

main townships.

Cr Watson said while he did

not think parking wardens

were needed for Rolleston at

the moment, there may be a

time when it is needed as the

township grows.

Cr Lemon said he could not

foresee a time when Leeston

would need parking wardens.

SELWYN TIMES

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

THE DISTRICT council has

shifted into second gear as it

looks into its car parking policy.

The 5min, 30min and 120min

car parks in the commercial areas

of the district are not policed.

Up until now, it hasn’t been too

much of a problem. People come

and go and usually everyone is

happy.

But with more business moving

into the district to service the

booming population and car

parks at a premium, feathers are

being ruffled.

Selwyn Times lifted the lid on

the issue with the Black Door

bar in Lincoln and its wheelclamping

sign saga several

weeks ago. The issue between

the business and district council

over 12 car parks in Robert St is

unresolved.

But the issue is wider than

that and a district-wide review is

under way as we report on page 1.

Barton Fields rental angers neighbours

• By

ashion

Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A SIX bedroom rented house

in an up market Lincoln

subdivision is at the centre of

a row which could shape the

future of the district’s planning

rules.

Residents living in

Carnaveron Dr, Barton Fields,

have complained to the district

council about the property they

claim is a boarding house.

Gardening

The property is owned by

a Lincoln University student

Harry Crawford, who is currently

back in Auckland where he is

originally from. It is tenanted by

students and professionals.

Residents say there is no issue

with noise but say the property

is generally untidy.

Motoring

Under the current district

plan the house is defined as a

dwelling and complies with

residential activity rules.

The district council’s

environmental services manager

Tim Harris said the district plan

does not have a definition of a

boarding house.

The district plan is under

Tasty Bites

review and Mr Harris has not

ruled out potential changes in

this area.

Residents want similar-styled

houses to be prevented from

popping up throughout the district

without notification.

They are calling for a boarding

house definition to be placed in

the district plan.

Mr Crawford said he did not

want to upset residents and

had done a lot of work to get the

house up to standard to look like

a residential home.

He said the driveway has

adequate car parking for the

number of rooms in the house

and the landscaping is being

done in spring which is a more

suitable time to do it.

“We haven’t had a single noise

complaint since we have been

there. We have been friendly,

hospitable and we are not there

to upset people and it is never

going to be a party house,” he

said.

Next door neighbour Joan

Mawson, one of the residents

who has complained, said it

wasn’t a witch hunt against Mr

Crawford.

Mrs Mawson and other

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 3 MARCH 2018

nearby residents Kate MacLean

and Lin Tian said they would

not have bought sections if they

knew the rental house was being

built.

They were angry at the

businessman who sold the

section to Mr Crawford.

The house sits on the boundary

of the Barton Fields subdivision

currently under development

by Faulks Investments Ltd.

Managing director Tony

Faulks said the house should

not have been authorised by the

district council.

In Christchurch last year, The

Ilam and Upper Riccarton Residents’

Association successfully

lobbied for the Christchurch

City Council replacement

district plan to have a boarding

house definition, to stop loose

“rent a room” arrangements.

This meant a resource consent

was required before a boarding

house could be established.

Garry Birch

Fisherman, hunter and now Birchy’s

Your Local Views

Garry Birch, 79, has just been made a life member

of the Lincoln Club. He spoke to Georgia O’Connor-

Harding about his time with the club, his transport

company and fishing in remote, crocodile-infested

Australia

How did you come to be

involved with the Lincoln Club?

We had a transport business. It

News

was E Birch and Sons those days.

We carted potatoes and stuff

like that when we grew them on

the old Lincoln Club grounds

to raise funds to help with its

construction. Our company

started to build the club on

Edward St and that is what has

happened. We were involved

in building the car parks and

Fashion

driveway. The first meetings we

had was initially at our house

in Lincoln. It was called the

Ellesmere Country Club back

then. I have been there since day

one virtually.

What caused the name to be

changed?

They changed the name about

eight years after we had the

Gardening

club going I think. The district

council bought our site. Now we

have got the club in the pub of

The Famous Grouse.

When were you given life

membership?

On Sunday at an annual

meeting. It was given to me by

the Lincoln Club president Lynn

Townsend.

Have you lived in Lincoln all

your life?

Not yet, I am not dead yet.

No, I have. I was born and bred

there.

What kept you here all that

time?

Probably the family business.

It is a good town. I quite like it

so I suppose that is why we have

stayed. It is not so quiet now.

There are a lot of new faces and

people. Things have changed

over the years. It is a lot busier

but I don’t mind it. It is always a

challenge which is good.

Tell me a bit more about the

family business you have run?

It was started by my

grandfather in 1908. My brother

and I bought it off my father and

his brother. About seven years

ago I got out of the business

and my brother sold it out to

Ellesmere Transport Co Ltd. It

got too competitive for us to stay

in business. We eventually sold

it out three to four years ago. My

brother and I were both getting

on and thought we would retire.

Now you have more time to

yourself, what do you enjoy

doing?

I play a bit of golf. I like helping

out other people. I tried bowls but

I didn’t think I was old enough.

I understand you are a

fan of fishing at the Gulf of

Carpentaria?

My son lives just out of Cairns.

We go over there every year. We

go way up to the Kendall River

by the Weipa which is on the

Gulf of Carpentaria amongst the

crocodiles and snakes.

Are you afraid of fishing

around such dangerous

animals?

No, not really. If you leave

them alone it is okay. You don’t

go for a swim put it that way. We

know they are there and we don’t

have any problems with them. I

like the outdoor life and it is nice

a life member of the Lincoln Club

For 22 years. I love it, it is

excellent.

Have you got any exciting

tales?

Not really, I have seen a

few snakes and we do a bit of

shooting. We get the odd wild

pig and feral cats. The feral

cats eat all the wildlife up there

apparently, and they want to

try get rid of them because they

are a menace. It is a bit different

in New Zealand. Them and the

dingoes of course – they get shot

too. I like hunting, fishing and

shooting and so forth while I

could still do it. I don’t shoot as

much anymore. I mainly fish.

What is the most exciting fish

you have ever caught?

The barramundi – we have

caught them up to 1.2m long.

They are quite a big fish.

Was it a battle reeling it in?

They fight quite a bit. It takes a

while, but when we get them into

the boat they get tired quickly.

They are one of the better fish for

taste. They are as good as New

Zealand or Chatham Islands

blue cod. We go over to Chatham

Islands every second year to

fish. My sons go snorkelling for

crayfish. I have snorkelled a bit.

We have caught groper over

there. We’ve been doing that for

12 years.

Have you ever caught

anything weird like an octopus?

We have had an octopus climb

on board at one stage. They are

terrible things. They climb under

seats and are terrible to get out.

Mind you it wasn’t big but still

a menace. It was caught on the

line. Once it latched onto the

boat it climbed on board. They

are pretty slimy sort of things.

You travel a bit with your

fishing. Is there anywhere else?

We have been to Stewart Island

and Fiordland as well.

Is there anywhere you like to

go fishing in Selwyn?

I think in the Selwyn River a

few trout are caught. My boys

used to fish that years ago. We

and caught flounders.

I hear you had a re-union last

week?

These guys were in the New

Brighton Power Boat Club. My

older brother and I used to race

them but he passed away three

months ago. There were about 17

of us. We met up, had a couple of

beers and food at Trevinos. Peter

Knight was one of the racing

guys we were with. He has been

a world champion. We raced at

used to meet every year. Last year

two are starting to tip over. Since

away. One was my brother and

the other was a cousin of mine.

Do you have any other hidden

talents?

In my younger days I used

to play ice hockey. I played for

Canterbury and was a New

Zealand representative as well.

We were going to go overseas to

Canada and the United States

but the money was the thing that

held us up in those days. It was

too costly for a young fella.

How did you meet your wife?

Actually my second wife. We

celebrated 36 years last Thursday.

She is a local girl from Springston

South. We met at the Springston

Hotel.

Are there any other projects

you have on the go?

I do the odd jigsaw puzzle. I am

waiting for the summer so I can

get a lawn down and a couple of

fences up. We are in a new house.

Our other house got knocked

over in the earthquake. We have

been living in a portacom for

five years. It hasn’t been easy

but we got what we wanted and

that is the main thing. That is

what happens with insurance

companies. You are forever

battling them.

Joint developer/council

car park plan given okay

Fashion


• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PLAN for joint developerdistrict

council funding for

commercial car parking has

been endorsed by Selwyn

businesses.

The district council is

considering to

Gardening

partially support the

cost of constructing

car parks for new

businesses.

A report on the

funding was put to

the property committee

earlier this

month.

Pat

McEvedy

Motoring

It comes after the district

council was approached by a

developer in Lincoln asking if it

would consider developing car

parks in conjunction with them.

This was because their development

would use the entire site

leaving no room for car parking.

The district council would

not provide the name of the

Tasty Bites

developer to the Selwyn Times.

The standard approach is for

the developer to provide their

own car parking.

But the report said there are

Money

financial benefits to a joint

approach.

Car-parking between The

Laboratory and the Lincoln

Library and Service Centre is a

good example of this.

The Laboratory owner Martin

Bennett said sharing the car

park has worked well.

“The district council provides

the land, we pay for construction.

They are not exclusively

ours but we get to use them,” he

said.

Mr Bennett said district council

funding car parks is essential.

There is no time line on when

the district council will make

a decision or on how much

funding it will allocate.

But councillor Pat McEvedy

said he hopes a decision will be

made as soon as possible.

At a recent district council

meeting, Mr McEvedy called for

a district-wide policy to ensure

businesses across Selwyn were

treated the same.

In September, Selwyn Times

reported a petition from Lincoln

business owners was presented

to the district council to stop

cycleways on either side of

Gerald St from being installed.

Lincoln Club president Lynn

Townsend, who organised a

petition, said he welcomed the

idea to have the district council

partially fund businesses’ new

car parks.

“Sense may be finally starting

to prevail . . . the very fact they

are considering some form of

contribution towards provision

of car parking in Lincoln is

definitely step in the right

direction,” he said.

The Lincoln Pantry

owner Phillippa Boa was also in

support of the funding.

She said her business on

Robert St shares about nine car

parks with four other shops.

But Mrs Boa said the planned

cycleway through Lincoln is the

biggest threat to businesses and

owners have a united front an

alternative route needs to be put

in place.

to limit the effects of farming on water quality.

The majority of farmers are already doing the

right thing, but more needs to be done to truly

improve our precious water.

We are working with farmers so that they know

exactly what they need to do. It will take time

for these improvements to have an effect on our

water quality and quantity, but we’re off to a

good start.

SELWYN TIMES

Your Local Views

Readers respond to the

Selwyn Times’ article on

the water meeting held

recently:

ews

the Hills to the Sea, published in

Jan and John Zervos –

Revisit the book Selwyn From

1997 by the Ellesmere Camera

Club with the backing of the

district council. We are now

2017, 20 years exactly have

passed.

The book makes one aware

of the massive acceleration of

damage to our waterways since

ashion

its publishing. Dairying and

unbridled growth in what were

until very recently small country

towns are the main driving

forces. Interestingly the book

also gives an insight to a possible

agenda for certain business

conglomerates to be in favour

of Lake Ellesmere/Te Waihora

complete demise, opening it up

Gardening

for another use.

The air in Lincoln tonight

reeked of what smelled like raw

sewage. It’s really a question

of whether we continue our

complicity with a system

obsessed with computer models,

data collecting and forever

talking in circles at meetings

which are all really just delaying

otoring

actions, or do we not?

Readers respond to

the article on Selwyn

having some of the most

dangerous intersections in

New Zealand:

Chris Bartram – As a

resident of Jones Rd, whose

property has been damaged by

cars twice in the last six months,

and also a keen cyclist – the fix

for cutting the accident rate on

this quite narrow access road is

simple. Lower the speed limit

to 80km/h which will get the

trucks and rat runners off this

stretch of road and onto the

Main South Rd (50m away).

Paul Houston –

In regards to the article

on the Shands Rd-Blakes Rd

intersection. I turn right from

Blakes to Shands Rd heading

east every morning. This

is an extremely dangerous

intersection, getting worse

with the traffic coming in from

Lincoln. This will get worse

again with the new interchange

under construction, with even

more traffic wanting to turn

right from Blakes onto Shands,

trying to access the interchange.

Suggestions are:

To make Blakes Rd an

underpass under Shands Rd, and

to swing around, merging back

on to Shands Rd. Roundabout

traffic lights.

I see that the north end

of Blakes Rd becoming a

cul-de-sac will have minimal

impact on traffic turning right

onto Shands. This road has only

got busier and I have witnessed

a number of accidents on this

corner. As mentioned in your

article, there have already been

fatalities at this intersection.

When there is a queue of six

to eight cars in the morning

wanting to turn right on to

Shands Rd, some cars will turn

left, go down Shands Rd, then

do a U-turn, which doesn’t help

the people turning right. I look

forward to any feedback on this.

David Snook – Shands

Rd has become a major

thoroughfare for residents of the

expanding areas around Lincoln

and Rolleston (among others), so

in addition to increased traffic

volumes, there are increased

numbers joining and leaving

Shands Rd.

Contributors to the “problem”

include:

Visibility. Vehicles without

lights during periods of poor/

challenging light conditions

(sunset/rise, fog etc.). A vehicle

approaching you out of the gloom

is an unlit, dark coloured vehicle

which surely should be the first to

switch-on for their own safety.

The failure of motorists to

stop at stop signs. Motorists who

fail to indicate their intentions

with adequate timing. Failure to

maintain appropriate following

distances – especially when road

conditions (wet) demand it.

Poor choice of route;

there are multiple points

where you can join Shands

Rd, some intersections are

busier and are perhaps not

the best choice. Right turns

are particularly troublesome,

perhaps some intersections

should have “no right turn”

status. Slow moving (farm

vehicles for example) should

be “discouraged” from using

high-flow roads during peak

travel times. Due to the number

of intersections and driveway

entrances, Shands Rd should be

considered for “no passing lines”.

Volunteer firefighters

simply want to help

The district is fortunate

to have huge numbers of

volunteers committing

significant time to help

clubs, organisations and

causes. Lincoln Volunteer

Fire Brigade chief fire officer

Jeremy Greenwood explains why

firefighters do their bit to help

I’M CONSTANTLY amazed at the

support volunteer firefighters in the

district receive from the public.

As chief of the Lincoln brigade I see it

every week.

I’m unsure the exact reasons but

suspect it has a good deal to the fact that

fires, emergencies and natural disaster do

seem to affect us all.

People value the time, commitment and

family sacrifice that our firefighters make

to help our community.

I was once asked by a woman visiting

the Lincoln fire station: “Is there a typical

time that the alarm goes off?” Before

I could answer one of my colleagues

interrupted:

“Usually dinner time or kids’ bath

time!”

The comment was made in jest, but

the message was simple; you never know

when the alarm will sound but it’s often at

an inconvenient time.

The fire alarm can go at any time of the

day or night, 365 days of the year.

The amount of weekly training we are

required to undertake is astounding and

added to that are additional weekend

specialist courses that we’re required to

attend or choose to attend.

We’re constantly involved in formal

initiatives to educate children about fire

safety and this sees our crews regularly

visiting schools, pre-schools, Cubs, Scouts,

Guides and so forth.

We also work hard to ensure the fire

safety messages get through to other

groups within our community; farmers,

the elderly, landlords and tenants and the

disadvantaged.

This help could be as simple as alerting

people that they could be eligible for

subsidised home smoke alarms, and then

installing them at no cost.

So, why do we do it? It’s challenging,

rewarding and a great way to meet people

within the community. Most of all, we

simply want to do our bit to help.

Flemington booming

New irrigation

system

for domain

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE BACK-FIELDS of the

Lincoln Domain are out of

action while a new automated

irrigation system is installed.

But the fields are set to be

re-opened in time for the cricket

season in October.

The district council has

decided to install the new

irrigation system in a bid to fight

the dry weather.

The installation of the second

stage of the system began last

week.

The first part of the $161,061

project was completed earlier

this year, with the front fields

now irrigated under an automated

system.

“We have already noticed

grass growth and cover in the

condition of the front fields,”

Lincoln Event Centre manager

Ginny Bowden said.

She said the fields previously

had to be manually watered

meaning moving the irrigator

up to three times a day during

dry conditions.

The new system aims to save

time, money and labour.

SUCH HAS been the demand

for sections at Lincoln’s

Flemington subdivision, that the

developers are pushing ahead

quickly with opening new stages

to cater for this interest.

Shane Kennedy, developer of

Flemington, said that stages one

to four and 14 are already sold,

stage six almost sold and stage

eight is selling rapidly.

“We only put stage eight on

the market a couple of months

ago and already we have sold

half of the 42 available sections.

This means that we have had

to start planning the proposed

stage 10 earlier than expected,”

he said.

Set on 58ha, Flemington

subdivision is planned for 650

sections, half of which have

already been sold.

“With its proximity to

Christchurch, established

schools and businesses,

Flemington has attracted a

diverse range of homeowners,

from those looking to build their

first homes to the more mature

retirees, attracted by the sense

of community and wonderful

scenic views that Flemington

offers.

the emphasis we have put on

“We have tried to minimise

through roads and have

also ensured our roads are

slightly narrower than other

developments. We have also

ensured footpaths are wide for

ease of walking,” he said.

Levi Park

gets smart

New Zealand’s first PGC Smart Playground has opened this week right here in Selwyn, bringing a

new kind of fun to Levi Park, Rolleston.

The park has been transformed into a PGC Smart Playground as part of a 90-day trial aimed at

bridging the gap between digital and physical play. New Zealand company Playground Centre

(PGC) has exclusive rights to the North American Biba technology that powers the play.

At Levi Park six augmented reality markers are now attached to the existing playground

equipment which can be easily scanned by parents and children to activate mini-games and

unlock new play content aimed at three to nine-year olds.

The games can be downloaded free – search for ’playbiba’ in the App Store or on Google Play.

To play, the parent holds their phone with a Biba game open, issuing playful instructions based on

an imaginary premise (like, ‘you’re a secret agent!’) while the child follows them. The child spends

most of their session time playing away from the phone on playground equipment based on game

directives. They then return to the phone intermittently to perform a game function, complete a

mini game or advance their progress through the game’s imaginary scenario.

The Smart Playground combines digital fun and physical play as a way to help decrease screen time

among children and ensure healthy, outdoor play. Head to Levi Park and try it out for yourself!

With the recent flooding events now is a good time to think about your emergency preparedness.

Are you signed up to Selwyn Gets Ready?

Selwyn Gets Ready is a purpose built online system where residents can securely record their contact

details and any special needs, resources and skills they want to share to help their local community

look after each other in an emergency. It allows the Council and Civil Defence to share emergency

alerts, such as wind, snow, fire warnings, water quality warnings and other messages with members.

They arrive as email and/or text. Currently around 7,000 Selwyn households are signed up.

To sign up visit selwyn.getsready.net and follow the prompts.

Remember, in most emergencies it’s best to stay in your own home if it is safe to do so. But that may

mean being without power and water or any way to get supplies for three days or more.

Ask yourself: Do you have enough food? What about family members who need medication? Do you

have enough food for pets to get through too? And remember three key points:

· Light up – Your emergency supplies don’t have to be in a kit, but you might have to find them in the

dark. Make sure everyone knows where the torches and batteries are.

· Fridge first – If the power goes out, eat the food from your fridge first, then your freezer, before you eat

the food in the cupboard or your emergency kit.

· Know your neighbours – Get to know your neighbours. In an emergency they may need your help or

you may need their help, and you may be able to band together to get through.

Singles tie up annual rugby match

SPORTS

DESPERATION: Greenpark’s Hannah Paddon and Lincoln’s Char

Porima both leap for the ball.

• By Gordon Findlater

THE SINGLE men had more

game than the married men,

taking out the Dunsandel/

Irwell Rugby Football Club’s

annual married v singles

match 39-26 on Friday night.

The match is a traditional

end of season fixture for the

club and has seen the single

and married men battle for a

shield over the years.

The game consists of

players and coaches from the

SPORTS

division one to the division

three sides. Rather than

seeking interest for the game

a text message was sent out

by this year’s organiser Justin

Wolff.

“There’s a few guys that

are now married who were

playing on the other side over

the past few seasons. Some of

BUSINESSES

the single boys looked across

thinking really? There’s some

quite young fellas who are

now in the married side,”

said club vice president

Darcey Roberts.

The married team are hoping

to claim back the shield

next year with the idea they

can gain a few new recruits.

Meanwhile, the singles are

believed to be equally hopeful

of gaining a couple of

numbers through divorce.

ELLESMERE COLLEGE

COMMONWEALTH GAMES TRIP

In April 2018, ten Ellesmere College students will be

travelling to see the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.

The trip is directly linked to their Year 13 NCEA Level 3 Physical Education course work where the students study a

current physical activity event and its impact on society.

The students will have the opportunity to watch events such as the rowing, track and field, netball, rugby, diving

and more. While this is an exciting opportunity to see international sport competed at the highest level, the

benefits to the students are much bigger than that. This will be an unforgettable trip which will provide adventure,

challenge, personal growth and inspiration. The organising, team work, budgeting and planning has begun as the

group have been working hard, alongside their usual weekend jobs, on fundraising events including quiz nights,

catering, selling pea straw and pumpkin picking. Plans are also in progress for a stall at the Ellesmere Show.

The generous spirit of local community has shown itself again with a number of local businesses supporting the

students in the form of individual sponsorship. The students and their families would like to express a huge thank

you for the help and support of these sponsors whose generosity is very much appreciated.

Many thanks to the following sponsors and our community for helping us go on this amazing trip

Local manufacturer leads

in innovative products

Few companies are as proactive in

research and development as local Rolleston

business, Custom Made Garage Doors.

Two recent releases are their

architecturally designed, Flush Mounted

garage door and the Weatherline Sectional

Garage Door. These complement an already

impressive range of products.

The unique Flush Mounted Garage Door

is manufactured to blend seamlessly, at the

sides and above the door with exterior wall

cladding; whether the exterior is Cedar,

Alucobond, flat panel, negative detail

or another material. This creates a clean

look making it particularly suitable for

architecturally designed homes.

This design has been extremely popular

with Custom Made Garage Doors supplying

customers throughout New Zealand,

especially homes in Central Otago around

Wanaka and Queenstown.

For those wanting a Cedar look, the

Weatherline Sectional Garage Door is

great for those wanting a weatherboard

look yet low maintenance finish, designed

to resemble a 150mm fold weatherboard

profile.

Other products in Custom Made Garage

Doors’ range include:

• glass and acrylic sectional doors,

• flat panel sectional doors,

• negative detail sectional and multi-rib

doors,

• the popular negative detail Smartline flat

panel sectional garage door,

• flush mounted doors that fit neatly and

are almost invisible when shut,

• plywood doors, and

• roller and tilt doors.

With over 50 colours to choose from

standard to the large range of powder coat

colours, matching your home’s exterior

décor will not be a problem.

People who spend time in their garage

will also be pleased to know that Custom

Made Garage Doors can insulate many of

their garage doors, and retrofit insulation

into existing doors.

Insulating the garage door is a great way

to increase the warmth in this area of the

home while keeping it cooler in summer.

It also makes it stronger and quieter

in operation, especially with a Merlin

Whisper auto door opener, which is belt

driven and comes with a battery back-up in

case of power cuts, something that can be a

problem at times in the district.

For smoother operation and a longer life,

it is a good idea to have your garage door

serviced every two years, something that

Mal and the team at Custom Made Garage

Doors can take care of, along with looking

after any needed repairs.

Rolleston business powers up

The owners of the original A Electrical,

Greg and Helen Horton are really excited

to announce they have rebranded to Juice

Electrical.

Still locally owned and headed by this

powerhouse team who have a passion for

providing the personal touch and knowing

their customers by name, Greg and Helen

pride themselves on looking after every

customer’s individual requirements. It is

this connection that has inspired them to

celebrate their new business Juice Electrical

as The Power People.

The change will allow differentiation

of their highly professional service from

competing businesses, avoiding confusion

for customers. It is also a step forward for

Helen and Greg as they grow their business.

“Juice Electrical represents a fresh new

change. It’s exciting, vibrant and the name

really stands out,” says Helen.

“Our commitment to our customers

remains the same with our new name

reflecting the energy we put into every job.”

The idea for choosing the name Juice

Electrical, was sparked by a client builder

who called one morning requesting more

‘juice’ to run his floor sanders.

Juice Electrical will still provide a full

range of services that includes wiring new

and existing houses, garden lighting, kitchen

refits, Mitsubishi heat pump installations,

setting up spa pools, internet and telephone

installations, fitting television aerials, office

refits, industrial installations, and issuing

electrical safety certificates.

“No job is too small or too big,” says

Greg who emphasises their continued

commitment to providing a high level of

service and quality workmanship from start

of job through to completion.

“If a customer needs urgent assistance

because they’ve no hot water or power, we’ll

get an electrician out the same day,” adds

Helen.

This explains why their regular customers

keep calling them. They know the team will

save them time and ultimately money. With

the change to Juice Electrical, Greg and

Helen’s commitment to their customers is

still the same.

If you need an electrician, call Helen at

Juice Electrical on 03 379 6644 or email

Enhancing your home

Over winter, we spend more time indoors and are likely

to notice tasks to be done. Paintwork might need touching

up. We might consider ways to make the house warmer or

how flow could be improved. As spring emerges, we feel

energetic and keen to make changes.

A fresh coat of paint will lift any part of a home. Renovating

outdated bathrooms and kitchens or converting a window

to a doorway for access to a deck or patio will increase the

value of a home. The latter might be as simple as removing

a window’s bottom trim so a door can be installed.

Having double glazed windows retro-fitted will also

differentiate one home on the market from another,

making it more attractive to buyers.

When deciding to renovate, unless you have the

knowledge and skill, it is best to consult the relevant people

such as a designer and tradespeople so work is properly

carried out and meets building code. It will also help avoid

headaches and costly over-runs.

When replacing a kitchen or installing new cabinetry,

request that the manufacturer measures the area on-site

so mistakes are avoided which might leave you with units

that do not fit the space.

Looking to improve your home’s energy efficiency? First,

consider how heat is being lost. Insulating a home can

make a big difference as can hanging warm drapes, fitting

draft stops to doors, and attaching foam stripping around

the inner edge of older windows. Check also that window

catches are fitting correctly and each window can be shut

tight. Installing heat pumps will also make a difference

while a log or gas fire will add ambience.

Home improvements help preserve and even increase

the value of a home while making it a more enjoyable place

for those living there.

Adding an extension is one way to increase space.

If replacing a kitchen request an on-site

measurement.

An example is when knocking out walls. Those that are

load bearing will need to be replaced with beams to support

the ceiling and roof and a structural engineer might be

required to design an appropriate sized lintel to take the

weight. Of course, the power should be disconnected

before hacking into a wall and any plumbing considered.

If you like your home though find space is an issue,

adding an extension may be the answer. This will involve

having plans drawn up and applying for local Council

consent so consult a draftsperson, who might also suggest

some good ideas.

A fresh coat of paint will lift a home.

Freshen up and restore

your garden

With spring just around the corner, there is no time to waste

in getting the last of the winter garden clean-up completed.

Garden beds may need tidying

up, fruit trees and roses pruned, and

mulch spread around so moisture is

retained and plants protected over

summer.

If there is no time for working in

the garden or it is not your thing,

Revive Landscaping can take care of

this for you. Whether a one-off job to

get your outdoor setting shipshape,

regular garden maintenance, or

staging a garden for a property sale,

they will do a professional job.

Revive Landscaping specialise in

all facets of landscaping and just love

garden makeovers. They can simplify

a garden for low maintenance or

create a Garden of Eden for you.

Revitalisation of established

gardens where plants are overgrown

or there are gaps is their forte. They

will remove unwanted plants while

spreading compost and mulch to

invigorate the soil so plants flourish.

They will also construct and

install decks, fences, water features,

pergolas, irrigation systems, lighting

and artistic features, leaving you to

enjoy what is created.

Ross has considerable experience

in the industry. He has a high level

of expertise and can readily interpret

landscape plans to ensure that what a

client envisaged is achieved. He will

also advise clients on the potential

for their garden.

The versatility of the team at Revive

Landscaping and willingness to work

with a customer so their outdoor

setting is right for them along with the

quality service, value for money, solid work

ethic, and tidy approach where rubbish is

taken away at the end of a job are reasons

why customers speak so highly of them.

With such a flexible approach and

broad skill set, Ross is the perfect person

to call if you need assistance with your

garden. He can be reached on 027 222

when you call, he will call you back). You

can also email: ross@revivelandscaping.

not ripping out the whole garden.

Instead, selectively retaining and

shaping trees and shrubs, working

with the basic structure to put life

back into the garden. With a solid

knowledge in horticulture you can

also be assured that plants will be

given just the right amount of space

to grow.

“I really enjoy revamping a garden

whether it’s working with an existing

structure or creating something new,”

says Ross Legg who owns and operates

Revive Landscaping.

Ross would rather retain an old tree

that has taken years to grow than cut it

down, pruning to enhance its branch

structure and even adding up-lighting

to enhance its beauty.

Under 15

Rugby 2017

Lincoln High School is about to compete in the South

Island co-ed Under 15 Tournament being held in

Greymouth. The Under 15 rugby team for Lincoln this

season is most of the very successful Year 9 and 10

mid-week rugby team, that won the Canterbury mid-week

competition and bolstered with a few Year 11 boys that

are still Under 15. They have played the Ashburton College

Under 15 team and recorded a win. They will also play

Rangiora High School and St Andrews College Under 15

teams in warm up games before they travel away.

With Lincoln only having one Saturday rugby team the

co-ed Under 15 Tournament is a great opportunity for

all players who potentially want to play 1st XV rugby for

Lincoln High School to experience Tournament rugby and

test themselves as a team against other schools whose

teams play together all year.

At least five shortened games will be played during the

Tournament. Since Lincoln became involved with the co-ed

tournament, we have had some great results. This year’s

team is very balanced with strong forwards and backs that

know how to use the whole width of the field. Quite a few

of the players were in last year’s Under 15 team and those

players, coupled with many rising stars, we are hoping that

this year we will once again make the final. The Lincoln

High team was also named the “Best and Fairest” at last

year’s Tournament which is a huge accomplishment as it is

voted on by all your opponents and the referees.

NZSS Clay

Target Shooting

Lincoln High School’s Clay Target team will be attending

the 2017 NZ Fish & Game North Island and New Zealand

Secondary Schools Clay Target Championships, which

will be conducted from the 30th of September to 2nd of

October and will be showcasing the best schoolboy and

schoolgirl competitors in the country.

The Lincoln High School team is well placed in a strongly

held 1st position in the Canterbury region, against 6 other

school teams. The Lincoln High School team has placed

1st in the DTL teams events in 4 out of the 5 current

competitions, with strong prospects of winning the team of

the year.

The skeet teams have also been resilient against the

competition with an increase in the number of teams

entered and the high scores achieved. Lincoln High School

has placed highly in the regional competitions in the skeet

events, winning a total of 3 out of 5 teams events.

Lincoln High School has a strong stance in the Clay Target

shooting arena, with the last two years the highest accolade

(National Aggregate High Gun) being

awarded to a Lincoln High School

student. This installs a degree of pride

in the current team members, which will

benefit them with the demanding task

of competing with the country’s best.

The team members, coach and

management would sincerely like to

thank all sponsors and supporters

for making this trip and future trips

possible.

1st XI Boys

Hockey 2017

2017 is proving to be a stellar year for Boys’

Hockey at Lincoln High School. The team leads

the competition in its division and recently beat

Ashburton College in the annual exchange.

The team lacks the star players of yesteryear but

makes up for this by playing consistently as a

unit. Players range from Year 9 through to Year 13

with a range of skills and experience.

The team’s experienced coach, Brent Norton,

has focused on skills development and working

as a team on the field. Of note is its ability to

score goals this season through good finishing

in the circle, with few against. Fitness levels are

improving and it is pleasing to see the team finish

games strongly as the opposition starts to tire.

The team will travel to Oamaru this year for

Winter Tournament and will again compete for

the Coaches Cup. This tournament is always

keenly contested but the team is quietly

determined to do well this year.

Hockey team.

1st XI Girls

Football 2017

The Lincoln High School Girls’ First XI football team

has had a fantastic season, winning every match

in their Girls’ Premier Division 2 league so far. In

the current round, they have scored 37 goals while

conceding only 4. The girls are all very eager to

finish off on a high, hopefully with a win in the final.

This year, the girls hope to follow up on their

strong performance in the local school league with

a successful campaign on tournament; which sees

them heading up to Blenheim to compete in the

Gary Sowden Secondary Schools’ Tournament, a

competition they placed third in last year.

Led from the front by Captain Emma Kench, who

is competing in her fifth and final tournament for

Lincoln High School, this diverse team is keen to do

well and send our senior players off in style.

The team would like to thank their coaches, Troy

Pennycuick and Kahu Christensen, who are both

ex-Lincoln High students, for their commitment

and dedication to the team. Finally, the team

would like to express their sincere gratitude to all

sponsors and supporters that have made this trip

possible.

1st XI Boys

Football 2017

Lincoln High School’s 1st XI boys’ football team will again

attend the New Zealand Secondary Schools’ Premier Football

Tournament in 2017. This will be the 3rd time in the last 4 years

that the boys have qualified for the most prestigious tournament.

The tournament will be held in Napier and runs from the 4th to

8th September and features the best schoolboy football teams in

the country.

The team have had mixed season locally and often did not get

the rub of the green in some games. Still the team finished with

6 wins, 3 draw and 3 losses to finish

6th out of 13 in a closely fought round

robin competition. The highlight was

again winning the Connetics Challenge

Shield with a 3-1 win over St Thomas of

Canterbury College.

after defeating St

Thomas 3-1.

There will be stern competition in Napier

with the team in the same pool as

Auckland’s St Peters College, Tauranga

Boys College and St Patricks College from Wellington. It will be

difficult to emulate last year’s 9th place finish, however Captain

Mason Stearn has emphasised that anything is possible in

tournament football.

The players and management would sincerely like to thank all

sponsors and supporters for making this trip possible.

Gardening

SELWYN TIMES

Easy to grow echinops

otoring

I OFTEN think it can be nice to have some

• By Henri Ham

plants in your garden that don’t require

much work. Kind of like a set-and-forget

approach – once it’s planted it will take

care of itself.

Echinops ritro, also known as globe

thistle, is one of these easy-care plants. It is

a hardy plant that tolerates frost and heat,

and thrives just about anywhere. And,

garden a long time. (For beginner garden-

asty Bites

because it’s a perennial it will stay in your

ers out there, annuals are plants that only

last one year or season. Perennials will

keep popping up season after season.)

Like the name globe thistle suggests,

it looks like a round version of a Scottish

thistle in

oney

that lovely deep blue/purple colour.

However, it’s actually a member of the

aster family and not a thistle at all. Which

is great, because this means it doesn’t have

any spiny prickles.

If you have a perennial garden or want

to create a cottage garden look, echinops

ritro would make a great addition. It looks

nice planted amongst other tall, cottage

garden-style plants foxgloves, lupin, hollyhocks

and delphinium.

It also looks lovely grown with coneflower

Echinacea in a border – their similar

appearances really complement each other.

And, if you still need further convincing

about growing echinops ritro, bees love it!

Once you have seedlings it’s time to look

for somewhere to plant them. I recommend

making the most of their hardiness

and growing them in full sun. Plant each

seedling approximately 30cm apart.

When they start flowering in early

summer, you can expect to enjoy stunning

blooms for around eight weeks. Echinops

ritro make good cut flowers and wonderful

dried flowers. As dried flowers they can

last for years in a good condition.

When they’ve finished flowering I

sometimes cut them back to around a

third of their height. This gets rid of all the

old leaves and encourages the plants to

come away stronger the following spring.

It will also stop them re-seeding if you

do it early enough – when the colour

starts to fade in the flower heads.

Otherwise it’s fine to take advantage of

their easy-care nature and just let them do

their thing.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

Answer:

What do I need to do with my citrus plants at this time of year?

Spring is a great time to fertilise your citrus

plants, so get prepared now. The spring

growth will begin towards the end of

September, so you need to make sure that the tree has time to soak up the

nutrients so they can fruit and flower.

This will give your tree the best opportunity to reward you with juicy lemons,

so it pays to not skip this step each season! Citrus

have shallow roots, so during their growing and fruit

development season, they need plenty of water and

fertiliser.

They need fertilising 3 times per year; September,

December and February. Plants must be wellwatered

regularly, especially during the hot dry

weather that we get in February and March – as this

is when the fruit is developing.

Application rate: For trees in the ground, apply

at 300 grams per square metre around the outer

foliage of the tree (the drip line).

If you have trees in pots, you would be using our

Intelligro Topdressing Fertiliser at a rate of 1-2

grams per litre of pot size.

might as well prune while you’re there!

The pruning of citrus is usually done just before they start to

grow in early September, so now is a great time to do it if

you haven’t already. To do this you will thin out the centre

of the plant, removing any thin spindly growth. It is also a

good idea to trim around the outside, reducing some of the

branches so that air can circulate through the plant. As you

harvest the fruit, trim back the branches they have come

from. This will help to promote future growth.

Outdoor rooms

Just because the outdoor space doesn’t

have walls, that doesn’t change the basic

principles applied to any design project

inside your home. With a few simple

fundamentals to guide you, you’ll soon

see how easy it is to create a beautiful

outdoor room you’ll love entertaining

and relaxing in throughout the warm

days and balmy nights of summer.

Key considerations include style,

function, lighting and mood, and

remember that your outdoor room ought

to be an extension of the look you’ve

created within your home, which reflects

your personality and lifestyle.

FOCAL POINT

Beginning, as with any room of the

home, a space must always have a focal

point to anchor the space. For some, this

may be a bar or barbeque area, a large

dining table, or a chill-out zone with

couches or loungers. Outdoor fireplaces

are becoming more and more popular

as our living areas blend seamlessly

between indoor and outdoor entertaining

throughout the changing of the seasons.

They can serve not only practical purpose

of somewhere to gather around to warm

as the nights get shorter, an outdoor fire

can make a stunning feature or room

divider for any outdoor living area.

Water feature like a pond with

beautiful Koi fish can also service as

a great outdoor focal point, creating a

tranquil environment in which to relax

and unwind in, or create a meditative

Japanese rock garden which your

outdoor area can overlook.

IN THE ZONE

If you already have a large terrace or

outdoor area, a blank canvas is a great

place to start. If you have a particularly

large outdoor area, dividing the space

into zones makes for a more functional

and aesthetically pleasing space. You can

do this by using a number of different

elements, such as contrasting flooring

materials or by creating different levels

of decking. However, if you’re after a

seamless indoor/outdoor flow or wish to

create the illusion of more space, use the

same flooring materials indoors and out.

Divisions can also be made with the

clever positioning of furniture. Use

modular seating to create divisions

between zones, and are also an ideal way

to camouflage ugly walls.

Create privacy and soften sharp angels.

Living walls, an ever-increasing popular

vertical plant system, can be either free

standing to create different outdoor areas

and can be on wheels to easily transform

your outdoor space at a moments notice.

Play with height and scale with

various types of planters, whether you

use hanging planters to draw the eye

upwards, or oversized planter pots to add

drama.

GO WITH THE FLOW

Creating a great indoor/outdoor flow is

easily created by opening up your kitchen

with bi-fold doors or windows to create

a servery or bar for easy entertaining.

If you are building your home from

the ground up, you may want to design

an outdoor room which lies at the very

epicentre of the building with rooms

opening onto the communal courtyard

with bi-fold doors.

FUNCTION OVER FORM

Consider what you intend to use your

outdoor space for. If you don’t plan on

eating outside, there’s no need for a

dining table, but buy some comfortable

outdoor seating instead, and if you only

intend on sitting outdoors during the

evening, then don’t waste money on

awnings and umbrellas, and invest the

money in an outdoor fireplace which

you will actually use.

ATMOSPHERE

Create unique and personalised

outdoor decor with textiles and

homewares from your travels, your

favourite antique shop, or make your

own shell garlands or wreaths from

beach holidays. String up fairy lights

or lanterns to create a festive mood in

the evenings.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Make your new home

street smart

When choosing a plan, something that is often

forgotten is how the house will look from the street.

Developers of residential subdivisions

generally have covenants relating to this and

will require concept drawings along with a

landscape plan to be submitted for approval

before lodging a building consent application.

Their aim is to preserves the quality of the

subdivision, something that benefits all who

own properties there.

Certain claddings may be specified along

with range of roof pitch and an expectation

for windows on the side of the home facing

the street, as well as landscaping that

enhances the overall look of the subdivision.

To avoid slowing the process down it is

best to plan all aspects of your home’s design

before seeking developer approval and

lodging consent documents with the Council.

In viewing the plans for a home, the

developer will want to see a street frontage

that is attractive. Garages that have plain walls

on the street side may be frowned on with a

request for changes to be made. There may

even be specific requirements in relation to

the garage door.

Where a street frontage faces north or

west, large windows and sliders are likely.

When the front of the home faces south so

will not capture any sunlight, there may be

less desire to include windows however this

is often something a developer requires. An

option is to incorporate long narrow windows

which give a home street presence yet do

not compromise interior wall space. Opaque

narrow windows can be incorporated into the

garage to break a stark wall with the added

advantage of providing light while hiding

what is inside.

Many covenants have clauses relating to the

parking of caravans, motorhomes or boats

often requiring these not be on view, back

from the street, and screened off. The same

applies to sheds and other structures. Even

the meter box, heating systems and solar

panels often need to be out of site from the

street.

While plant species may not be required,

height, width and an impression of plant

types are often expected to be stated, to

illustrate the final look. This is something that

a landscape designer or nursery can provide

help with. The letterbox too may need to be

constructed from materials in line with those

used on the home.

The type of fencing is likely to be stipulated

with any high fences to be back from

the street and not over a certain height,

something that is also reflected in the Selwyn

District Council’s best practice guidelines.

Take time to read a developer’s covenants

before and after purchasing land. If you

have any concerns talk to your builder and

developer’s representative. It may save you

money and time.

Long narrow windows can

give a home street presence.

Large windows are ideal with

north/west street frontages.

Brent loves reading

the newspaper.

So we designed an extra wide bench for him

to stop his paper falling into the sink.

Lifestyle, City Fringe + Income!

With a collapsed contract and vendors committed to

selling, you can’t afford to miss out on viewing this

unique lifestyle property on the fringe of Christchurch

city.

Set up a long private drive, the executive style family

home offers a meticulously planned design with a high

standard of finishing and extras that set it apart from

the crowd. Living areas are large and include a centrally

located modern kitchen with large island stone bench

top and butler’s pantry, separate formal dining area and

a generous media/entertainment room complete with

a built in bar and projector. Large sliding doors from all

living areas provide a seamless transition from inside to

out. Bedrooms are all good size doubles with three of

the four opening to the north facing balcony.

Other extras that enhance every-day life include: ducted

heat pump system, log burner with wetback, internal

vacuum system and generous storage spaces.

What really sets this property apart from the rest is its

involvement in the ever growing berry industry. Planted

in 2.8ha of blueberries and 0.6ha of gooseberries and

located just minutes from the market it serves, the

property has an established presence in its market

and provides a great income source not often found

in lifestyle properties of this calibre. The property is

supported by an impressive amount of infrastructure

which includes an onsite water storage pond, full

overhead irrigation/frost fighting system, a well with

consented water take, bird protection netting for

blueberries and a fully automated grading, packing and

labelling machine. The owners have paid particular

attention to developing systems which increase

efficiency and productivity on the property and it is in a

good position to hand to the next owner.

Whether you are looking to downsize from the farm,

make a lifestyle change from the city, or have an interest

in horticulture, this property is definitely worth your

consideration. Call me to arrange a viewing.
