New Leeston pub opened

• By Gabrielle Stuart

AFTER SIX long years without

a pub, the Leeston community

turned out to open the new

Crate and Barrel last week – and

the doors have barely stopped

swinging since.

Publican Craig Bradford said

business had been “flat out” all

weekend after the grand opening

on Thursday.

The grand opening began

with a parade through the

town, featuring a horse and

cart, a steam engine and vintage

vehicles.

QUICK THINKING from

Rolleston residents saved a

shed from catching fire after a

lightning strike on Sunday.

Andre Berkett and a

neighbour John Atherton used

garden hoses to put out a tree fire

after it was struck by lightning

between 12.30-1pm at Goulds Rd

across from Clearview Primary

School.

Mr Berkett said within 10sec

of the lightning strike, the flames

were as high as the treeline and

heading fast towards a neighbouring

property’s shed containing

jet skis and a car.

Using garden hoses, it took a

•See pages 22 and 23

bare-footed Mr Berkett, along

with a neighbour, about 30min to

extinguish the flames.

“(I) didn’t have time to put my

shoes on,” he said.

Mr Berkett and his partner

Sarah Laird were making bacon

and eggs for lunch when they

heard a loud bang which sounded

like a gas bottle exploding.

“Everything was grey we could

see the flames over the door . . .

dogs all nutting out and going

off and I was like holy s***,” Mr

Berkett said.

The flames were reduced to embers

by the time firefighters from

Rolleston and Burnham Camp

attended the incident.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

IT’S BEEN a dry innings at

Leeston but as we reveal on our

front page today, the town’s pub

has finally opened.

Photographer Martin Hunter

went along to the official opening

on Thursday and he says the

Crate & Barrel is one outstanding

building.

The quake put paid to the previous

establishment, and Leeston

has been effectively dry since; the

rugby club being the main watering

hole.

So it was fitting that the official

opening had plenty of fanfare and

of course two Canterbury rugby

greats to cut the ribbon.

The publicans Craig and Bridget

Bradford will also certainly make

their mark as mine hosts.

Craig says it will be more than a

pub, he expects it to act as a community

centre for the town.

Cheers!

FROM TYRE CENTRE

Lincoln pet crematorium noise issues

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SEVERAL RESIDENTS are

still not satisfied enough is

being doing enough to reduce

noise issues at a Lincoln pet

crematorium.

A meeting to update residents

on what was being done to

reduce noise

levels over Fond

Farewells Pet

Cremation Service

in Marion Pl was

held last week.

Bob

Tomkins

But resident

Bob Tomkins and

his wife Joanne

Earle-Tomkins

still does not believe enough has

been done.

The district council, Environment

Canterbury and residents

attended the meeting.

Gribbles Veterinary Pathology

Ltd owns Fond Farewells Pet

Cremation Service. Gribbles

general manager James Richardson

said it did not attend

because it felt it was the wrong

forum to be involved in.

But he said Gribbles had

received positive feedback from

the district council, saying all

complimentary of the work

Gribbles had done to reduce the

Mr Tomkins said the authorities

are still certain they have

Farewells complies with the

Resource Management Act.

“They think all the changes

astounding,” Mr Tomkins said.

But the district council’s

environmental services manager

Tim Harris said the meeting

was helpful and gave it the opportunity

to explain to residents

what was being done to mitigate

the noise.

“The district council has

concluded that Fond Farewells is

compliant and that noise issues

have been mitigated satisfactorily,”

he said.

The issue reared its head after

a non-notified decision was

made by the district council

for Gribbles to redevelop its site

at Marion Pl in 2015.

Residents first began to notice

the noise of the burners at

Christmas last year, which they

say are a lot louder than before

the site was redeveloped.

At the meeting, a presentation

was made by representatives

from ComMec and Marshall

Day Acoustics over noise mitigation

work to the furnaces.

A report said Fond Farewells

engaged with acoustical consultants

Marshall Day Acoustics,

which provided a report to

mitigate noise.

New mufflers and attenuators

were designed by combustion

engineers ComMec to reduce

noise.

Noise assessments of the crematorium

were completed last

month by the district council.

A letter to residents said a

significant decrease in the noise

was emitted and sound levels

were less than the district plan’s

daytime noise limits of 55dB.

In Brief

LUCKY ESCAPE

A young man was lucky to walk

away from a serious crash on

Christchurch Akaroa Rd, near

Lake Ellesmere, on Sunday. Firefighters

arrived at about 4.30pm

to find the car in the ditch and

the driver with a “very minor”

injury, which did not require a

trip to hospital, said Dave Irving,

Little River chief fire officer.

The car left the road, hit a rock

and flipped into the ditch. It

was right before “sunset point

corner”, Mr Irving said.

ART WEEK OPENING

Darfield Art Week starts with an

opening gala on October 6. The

gala will be held at 7pm at Darfield

Recreation Centre. Darfield

Art Week, run by the Malvern

Community Arts Council, will

have three exhibitions. The Darfield

Recreation Centre is showcasing

more than 300 pieces

by more than 100 artists. The

Road signs protect keas

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PERMANENT KEA warning signs

have been installed around Arthur’s

Pass village in a bid to protect the

endangered species.

Two warning signs urging drivers

to look out for keas were installed by

the New Zealand Transport Agency.

It comes after the Department

of Conservation recorded six kea

deaths in the area as a result of

being struck by vehicles since the

beginning of the year.

Four of the deaths occurred at

Deaths Corner, one in the Arthur’s

Pass village and the other near the

Bealey Hotel.

Two kea died last month after

they were electrocuted by a powerpole

at Temple Basin Ski Area. DOC

is working with Orion to reduce

further deaths.

A DOC spokeswoman said its records

rely on people informing the

organisation, or handing in dead

birds, so it may not reflect all kea

deaths on the road.

At the same time, a group of

about 20 birds, half of them juveniles,

were seen in the area.

The two signs, costing about

$1600, were installed on either side

of the township – one near Jack’s

Hut and the other near Candys

Bend. Kea are nationally endangered

with a population estimated

to be between 3000-5000.

ROLLESTON Volunteer Fire

Brigade is the second busiest

volunteer station in the country.

The latest statistics show from

January 1 to December 31 last

year, the brigade was dispatched

to 500 call-outs.

Attending medical calls,

backing up other fire stations

and the growth of the Rolleston

township contributed to the

increased call-outs.

The only other station busier

than Rolleston was the Silverdale

Volunteer Fire Brigade,

Auckland, which attended 551

call-outs last year.

The statistics were released by

the New Zealand Fire Service

Commission through the FYI

website, which enables the public

to make Official Information Act

and Local Government Official

Information and Meetings Act

requests online.

Further figures released to

Selwyn Times showed a total of

1681 fire calls were attended by

the district’s 13 stations.

Lincoln Volunteer Fire Brigade

had the second highest number

of call outs in the district with

275, followed by Kirwee on 160,

Leeston 101, and Darfield 100.

The Rolleston brigade covers

Waimakariri, Lincoln and

Burnham through to Templeton.

Rolleston senior firefighter

Martin Tier, who has served at

the station for nearly 12 years,

said Rolleston is a very busy

volunteer station.

“Every fire truck in New

Zealand has to do what we

call purple calls. They have no

choice, they have to go to cardiac

arrests to back up ambulances

just for man power.

“With Rolleston, we are what

we call first responders, so we

have the same qualifications as

some ambulance drivers. We

also have some people who are

very high up in St John in New

Zealand,” Mr Tier said.

same work as St John and this

Cheryl’s not crowing

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

FREE

CHERYL Haglund is far

from impressed after six

roosters mysteriously

appeared on her front lawn

in the night.

A band of silky cross

roosters were dumped

at her lifestyle block at

Holmlea Farms based on

Waterholes Rd, Rolleston

overnight recently.

Mrs Haglund is now

calling for residents to take

responsibility for their

own animals rather than

casting them off to other

people.

“Somebody has the

damn bloody cheek to

dump their six roosters on

my property in the night

. . . they didn’t even have

the decency to say I have

got these roosters, I don’t

want them anymore, are

you able to find a place for

them,” she said.

Mrs Haglund said she

would have taken the

roosters and found homes

for them anyway.

So far she has managed

to catch three of the roosters.

“People think I have got

a lot of chooks, I am not

going to notice half a dozen

more. I know just about

all my chooks personally,”

Mrs Haglund said.

Being on the pension, she

said she is struggling to feed

her own animals as it is.

Mrs Haglund cares for

a range of animals on her

lifestyle block including a

cow, donkey, sheep, goat

and mini-horses.

“I’ve sold chickens and

young chooks and I have

always said to anybody who

has taken them from me if

by chance it turns out to be

she re-homed.

GENERAL ELECTION 2017 – MEET THE CANDIDATES

Selwyn electorate

SELWYN TIMES

Amy Adams – National

As the local MP for

Selwyn since 2008 I

consider it an enormous

privilege to represent

the community that my

family and I live in, in

Parliament.

Working together we

have achieved so many

milestones for Selwyn including

new businesses and

schools, a new police station

with increased staffing,

road safety improvements

and improved broadband

services.

I work hard to be an

effective representative for

the people of Selwyn both

on local issues and on the

national stage, tackling

some of the big issues

that affect people across

the whole country such

as implementing a better

framework to manage

our water, tackling family

violence and cyberbullying,

dealing with housing

challenges, and improving

our telecommunications

infrastructure.

I would very much like to

continue to be your strong

voice in Wellington.

It’s my hope that the

voters of Selwyn will

choose to give me the

opportunity to continue

to be your Member of

Parliament for the next

three years.

Brian Davidson – ACT

I’m a 69 year old semi-retired

insurance consultant

living in the Akaroa area.

I believe that individuals

should enjoy more personal

responsibility and less

restriction.

I believe that our taxes

should be lowered, with a

corresponding reduction in

Government spending.

I believe that NZ is best

governed by a National-led

government, but National

will not receive sufficient

votes alone and needs a

strong, principled partner

to form a government.

The ACT party could be

that partner.

Although we have been

limited by our size, we

have been part of the

Government for the last

nine years and we have

ensured that successful

legislation has been passed,

with the three strikes

policy and partnership

schools being two of our

successes.

David Seymour will win

the Epsom electorate vote,

so all party votes for ACT

will count.

If you want a strong

responsible government,

please consider giving your

party vote to ACT.

Tony Condon – Labour

The Labour Party is a

very wide church, full of

people from all walks of

life, but one where we all

share the same values and

principles.

And that fundamental

value is, everyone matters.

As a province we have

and continue to experience

extremely challenging

times.

From the devastation

created from the

earthquakes through to

the ongoing rebuild and

regeneration of our region,

it has been a life-defining

experience.

It has provided perspective

and helps you to

answer the question of what

really matters. And for

many of us it is the people.

People really matter.

I am standing as the Labour

candidate for Selwyn

because I strongly believe

that this current government

has lost touch with

the people.

We expect care,

we expect dignity, we

expect courage, we

expect leadership and we

expect vision from our

government.

It’s time for a change.

Let’s do this.

Chrys Horn –

Green Party

With strong interests in

community, environment

and economy, social

scientist, Chrys Horn has

worked in a wide range of

settings from agriculture

and tourism to resource

management and social

research.

She works tirelessly to

build community in her

local area, is an active

transport advocate and

works in the Addington

Timebank as a way to

learn more about the

practicalities of living

economies and to these

things she brings her

background in action

research, a form of adaptive

management.

She is standing for the

Green Party because of

the way the party’s

central values are written

down and held front and

centre.

These include a focus

on recognising the Treaty

of Waitangi, social equity,

ecological wisdom,

decision-making devolved

to the level at which people

will be affected, and the

Selwyn electorate

Nicky Snoyink – The

Opportunities Party

Disillusioned by the lack

of meaningful action by

establishment parties to

provide adequate solutions to

New Zealand’s most pressing

issues has prompted Nicky

Snoyink to stand as The

Opportunities Party (TOP)

Selwyn candidate in the 2017

election.

TOP presents best practice,

evidenced informed policies

which tackle the root causes of

the hard issues.

When implemented, TOP’s

policies will create a New

Zealand better equipped to

thrive in the 21st-century and

prevent the next generation

from receiving a massive

hospital pass.

Neither left nor right,

TOPs innovative, fit for

purpose policies will require the

polluter to pay, honour

the Treaty of Waitangi

and deal to housing

unaffordability while putting

more money into ordinary

Kiwi’s hands through tax and

welfare reform.

Please take the time to read

about TOP’s policies and care,

think, vote for a fairer and

more prosperous New Zealand,

where all boats have the

opportunity to rise.

Dash into

Smith & Boston

for your

new look!

Lindy Michelle Palmer –

New Zealand First

Lindy has a strong family connection

to Selwyn District. Her

great-grandfather had a farm in

Southbridge, and her grandparents

had a farm near Ladbrooks

where her mother was born.

With Labour and National

neck and neck in the polls, it’s

time to vote tactically. Their

policies are bad for New Zealand.

I ask the people of Selwyn the

following:

If you are don’t like capital

gains tax, or high immigration

putting a strain on our

overstretched services, both in

health and housing, or a water

tax that will definitely hurt our

farmers in Selwyn District,

make sure to give NZ First the

party vote, so that we can stop

this madness.

NZ first will continue to look

after our seniors, and make

sure that our young kids continue

to have free health.

We will slash immigration,

and get our housing down to

affordable levels for all.

Party vote for common sense

policies.

Tactically, a more powerful

NZ First in government will

keep both parties in check.

Party vote New Zealand

First.

PARADE: Classic and vintage vehicles turned out for the opening of the Crate & Barrel in Leeston last week.

Big plans for Leeston’s new watering hole

•From page 1

About 250 people then filled

the outdoor deck to see the pub

opened by Canterbury rugby legends

Fergie McCormick and Alby

Anderson.

The town has been without a

pub since the earthquake-damaged

Leeston Hotel was demolished

in 2011.

Mr Bradford said the planning

and consenting process for the

new building had taken years.

“I’d just like to say sorry for the

wait. But now it’s open, come and

have a cold one. The poor buggers

out here have waited far too long,”

he said.

He said it was designed to be

more than a pub, and to function

as a community centre for the

town.

It is split into four sections, each

with its own theme – the bar area,

which is all about Leeston; the

lake-themed restaurant; a sports

area; and the music section,

featuring a full drum kit mounted

on the wall in the stairwell.

Mr Bradford said he had big

plans for coming events at the

pub, but they were still under

wraps.

“Now it’s open I can sit back

and start planning,” he said.

OCCASION: Fergie McCormick (left) and Alby Anderson cut

the ribbon to open the Crate and Barrel.

THEME: Each of the sections of the new bar and restaurant are

designed around a different theme, including music, motor-cycles

and game hunting.

Time to celebrate the lives of

those who have shaped us

The mayor writes about

appreciating the value of

friends and family

Selwyn is full of inspirational

people.

Last week I attended the

funeral of Annie Gwendoline

Hatton who had lived 102 great

years.

The occasion celebrated her

life and her family including

children, grandchildren, greatgrandchildren

and great-greatgrandchildren.

Over 102 years there have been

many world events that she had

lived through but the stories

shared at the service focused on

the lasting legacy she leaves with

her family and community.

A legacy of love, care, compassion,

and hope for life beyond

this world.

Last week my brother had a

child. My nephew was born at

2.46am being 3.3kg.

He is born to a family who

love him dearly. He has a great

grandmother, grandparents, and

extended family who will help

him grow and develop through

the years.

He is born into the same world

Sam

Broughton

Selwyn Mayor

as Gwenda and yet into a very

different world.

We all have stories about

people in our family who have

inspired us to choose the life

we have, or to hold certain

philosophies or make particular

decisions.

The people who support us are

often those outside our family

too.

Spring is now here and is a

time when the environment

celebrates life, there are

blossoms, daffodils, lambs and

calves, and sprouts and leaves

all beginning the next season of

growth.

It can also be a time when we

celebrate our own lives and the

lives of those who have shaped

us.

This spring I encourage you to

think about the people of influence

in your life.

Perhaps those who made a

difference while you were

at school, or maybe your

neighbour who was always there

for you?

Perhaps there are one or two

aunties and uncles who you

loved to stay with when you were

young?

Maybe there are a couple

of people who have been an

encouragement and support for

you recently?

Who is that friend who has

often had the right words to say

to you?

I encourage you to be grateful

for the good people in your life,

and to let them know you are

grateful for their friendship and

support.

Maybe you need to call your

great grandmother, or perhaps

you could say a few words to a

newborn.

An Environment

Canterbury spokeswoman

responds to Selwyn Times

article over noise issues

at the Fond Farewells Pet

Cremation Service

In the story on Fond Farewells

last week it stated that a new

resource consent was granted in

2003.

This is incorrect, the existing

consent granted in 1996 was

transferred to another party.

The application lodged in 1995

for an air discharge permit was

assessed and audited against the

plans and policies in place at the

time.

The resource consent processed

was notified in 1996.

The submitters withdrew their

submissions and the hearing

decision was made by the

Principal Hearing Committee

in 1997.

The consent holders of

CRC960431 transferred the consent

to the new operators in 2003

to Gribbles Veterinary Pathology

Ltd.

The resource consent record

changed to CRC960431.1.

Our consent search engine

doesn’t show the history/transfers

of the consent, so it’s an easy

mistake.

Carolyn Phil Murphy – Good

Carolyn Fraser: Liquor outlets

are everywhere.

Jamie Lawrence: Have you

people seen the projections for

Lincoln over the next 10 years?

But sure if they open another

supermarket that sold alcohol

it wouldn’t be a problem right?

What does it matter if someone

wants to start another business?

Rolleston or Hornby aren’t

that far away if people want

alcohol. As a previous student

at Lincoln I can honestly say

another alcohol store would

not make a single difference, its

easy enough for students to get

alcohol if they want it. Another

store won’t make that any easier,

most kids parents or siblings buy

them alcohol anyway.

Residents write to the

Selwyn Times about the

construction of a new

bridge at Liffey Stream

Jens Christensen – Thank

you for publishing my letter

regarding the waste of money

proposed to be spent on a third

footbridge over the Liffey Stream

south of Edward St.

Firstly, may I say that the letter

contained no link to my position

of chair of the Rolleston Reserve

Management Committee, this

was unfortunately your doing.

The letter was written in my

private capacity as a ratepayer

concerned about what is obviously

a waste of ratepayer money

and with my knowledge of the

area as the developer of the Ryelands

subdivision.

If it is the intention of the

Lincoln Community Committee

and district council to link the

esplanades on the eastern bank

of the Millpond then the full

story hasn’t been told or costed

as there will be a need to construct

another bridge over the

pond that lies to the south of the

old club building, for this piece

of water is privately owned and

not part of the esplanade.

The committee sees benefit in

being able to walk the full length

of the reserve but this can be

done on all of the western side

but not all of the eastern side.

Surely the wildlife that frequent

this pond have some rights

to roost and nest without the

public access and disturbance

along both sides of the stream.

The committee comments that

without this bridge, the public

needs to take a considerable

detour regardless of where the

existing bridges are.

That is misleading to me and if

people are walking for the experience

and good of their health,

does an extra 200 to 400m really

matter?

I urge the district council

and community committee to

properly evaluate this project

before spending any more

money in considering the above,

and provide the community of

Selwyn with a proper cost benefit

analysis of this project before

going any further.

By the way, don’t use the school

as an excuse as it is scheduled

to be back on its Boundary Rd/

North Belt site by the end of 2018.

Ross Mitchell – I agree with

Jens Christensen’s comments in

that the proposed new bridge

seems a huge extravagance. I

would like to suggest that the

funding for the proposed bridge

be spent on maintaining the

lovely asset that we already have

in the Mill Stream pond. The

weir that creates the pond would

have long disappeared if it

weren’t for the efforts on a local

resident in maintaining the weir

at his own expense. Full marks to

that resident, albeit that the weir

is still in a pretty parlous state.

I would like to celebrate those

school.

These sporting, cultural

and academic activities are an

important part of the culture of

students do.

In noting a few recent examples,

I keep in mind that this is

of contributions to the school.

Rather, these are examples that

rely on the dedication throughout

managers and parents (often the

same person) to prepare, transport

and manage the teams.

Each year, the Malvern Lions

club run two Fries Days at the

school to raise funds for our

For each of these, a big team

of Lions volunteers donate their

time to run the production of

ongoing support of our school

and the students.

in an interview day where they

were interviewed by employers

Ms Watson, 21, attended

Bound course adapted for people

with a range of intellectual disabilities.

Her group of students was

challenged to test their boundaries

through activities in the

outdoors, including sailing, high

ropes and climbing rock faces

blindfolded.

With a neurological condition

that affects her focus and

balance, accompanied by mood

disorders, including depression

and anxiety, Ms Watson said

going to Outward Bound really

showed her she was capable of

anything.

“While it was challenging being

away from family, I had time

to think and I learned a lot about

myself. I realised anything is

possible. There were some really

challenging activities, like climbing

the rock face but I did it and

loved it. We really are capable of

doing things we don’t think are

possible,” she said.

Being around people 24/7 was

also a highlight.

“Being with people meant

there was always someone to talk

to. I loved having people around

me,” she said.

Proportion of respondents rating service good or very good

It’s encouraging

that residents

generally see our overall

performance improving

over time, and that most

people really enjoy living

in Selwyn – Mayor Sam Broughton

Residents’ satisfaction with Selwyn District Council’s

overall performance has increased for the fourth

consecutive year.

In the Council’s latest residents’ opinion survey, 70% of

respondents rated the Council’s overall performance as

good or very good – an increase of 5% from 2016. This

continues a long-term trend which has seen the overall

performance rating rise steadily from 58% in 2013.

The survey also showed that 91% of residents think

Selwyn is a great place to live – slightly down on last

year’s 94% but up on 90% recorded in 2015.

Across 21 different Council services surveyed, 17 recorded satisfaction ratings of 50% or higher.

Ten services recorded an increase in their rating from last year, while the same number saw a

reduction and one remained unchanged.

Among the highest rated services were rubbish collection (96% rated good or very good),

recycling (95%), libraries (85%), parks and reserves (84%) and sewerage and wastewater (78%).

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says the continuing increase in the overall performance rating is a

positive signal from the community.

“This survey provides us with valuable feedback on how we’re doing each year,” he says. “It’s

encouraging that residents generally see our overall performance improving over time, and that

most people really enjoy living in Selwyn.

“However the survey also points out areas where we need to continue improving services,

particularly our rural roading network. It’s important that we listen to residents’ views – and these

results will be taken into account as the Council works on priorities for our next 10-year plan.”

The survey was carried out in June and July by independent research company Research First,

and surveyed 411 people using telephone, cellphone and online surveys to provide a statistically

representative sample of Selwyn’s population.

Waste management services maintained high satisfaction ratings. Alongside rubbish collection

(96%) and recycling (95%), organic collection was also rated highly at 89%. The Pines Resource

Recovery Park was rated good or very good by 74% of residents overall – and 82% among those

who had used the facility.

Community facilities continue to be well used and enjoyed by

residents. Public halls have been used at least once in the past

year by 81% of respondents, while 83% have visited a park or

reserve and 69% have used the public library network. Satisfaction

with libraries increased by 3% to 85%, while parks and reserves

(84%) and public halls (72%) also recorded increases.

Satisfaction with wastewater services increased by 4% to

78%, while water supplies increased slightly from 73% to 74%.

Satisfaction with urban stormwater reduced by 3% to 51%,

while the rating for water races dropped from 50% to 44%.

Satisfaction ratings were higher among respondents who actually

used the services with wastewater rating 87%, stormwater 66%

and water races 51%.

In land transport services, some services saw a decrease in

their rating, including satisfaction with urban roads (rated good

or very good by 50%), rural roads (32%) and making roads and

footpaths safer (40%).

There was also an increase in the number of people who

said they felt a sense of community with people in their

neighbourhood, up from 69% to 73%.

Mayor Broughton says the Council is continuing to invest in

maintaining and improving services. Current and planned

work programmes include road maintenance, renewals and

resurfacing, extending the district’s footpath network, new

cycleways and intersection improvements.

Water supply improvements and treatment upgrades are under

way or planned at several locations across the district. The

Council is also investing in new community centres at West

Melton and Tai Tapu, earthquake strengthening community halls,

and adding or upgrading facilities at other facilities.

Project Wild Thing is supported by The Wild Network, a collaborative movement of over 1000 organisations

and thousands of individuals committed to getting kids outdoors.

By ‘rewilding’ childhood, Project Wild Thing aims to improve children’s health, happiness, and respect for

the environment.

At this free event, Selwyn parents will enjoy a screening of the documentary, while their children experience

a variety of play activities at the Rubicon Valley Tourist Centre with the TimberNook outdoor education team.

The event will also include a farm display, games, horse trek, bush walk, rock skimming, outdoor challenges

and jet boating. The jet boating and horse back tours will be discounted and are at attendees’ cost.

Selwyn’s Project Wild Thing takes place on Sunday 8 October from 11am–3pm at the Rubicon Valley

Tourist Centre, Otarama Road, Springfield.

Registrations are open now at www.selwyn.govt.nz, closing on Monday 2 October. Limited spaces are

Jurassic future ahead for

Rolleston’s teen scientist

A ROLLESTON College

student has been recognised

for achieving 29 science badges

as part of a scheme designed

to promote students interest in

science activities.

Bailey Faas, 13, was awarded

bronze, silver and gold star

badges by the Science Award

Trust for being the first person

to complete 29 badges.

The topics of each badge

ranged from agriculture to zoology.

Science Award Trust chairwoman

Sue Jarvis said Bailey

was the first student to achieve

the high number of badges and

the trust congratulates him on

his amazing achievement.

The science badge scheme is

run by the Science Award Trust,

a group of current and former

teachers who give their time

voluntarily to provide science

resources to students, parents

and teachers

Bailey first started completing

science badges when he was in

year 7 at Rolleston School.

“I saw a girl in assembly getting

a badge for ‘large animals’.

It sounded like fun and I wanted

to try it,” he said.

Zoology was Bailey’s first

science badge and he completed

another two while still in year 7.

Last year, while in year 8,

WELL DONE: Science Award Trust chairwoman Sue

Jarvis presented Rolleston College student Bailey Faas

with his bronze, silver and gold star badges and a letter of

congratulations.

Bailey worked tirelessly and

completed 20 additional badges,

bringing his total to 23 by the

end of primary school.

As one of the foundation

learners at Rolleston College this

year, Bailey had the opportunity

to continue his science investigations.

As part of the school’s science

extension selected course “just

a theory”, he completed the last

six remaining science badges

available.

“I have always been interested

in astronomy and palaeontology

– the palaeontology badge was

my favourite,” he said.

Bailey said science has

expanded his knowledge on a

number of things and he recommends

the scheme for other

people too.

Looking ahead to the future,

Bailey plans to take as many

science-selected courses at his

school as possible.

Regarding his career plans, he

is thinking of joining the military,

or even the military police.

“That, or I become a palaeontologist,”

he said.

School play gets airtime

LEESTON Consolidated School

pupils have let their creative

juices flow writing an original

play.

After a couple of sessions with

the School For Young Writers

the pupils spent five hours

rehearsing their play which was

aired on Plains FM recently.

How World War 3 Happened

Because of a Paper Clip tells the

story of a girl called Gabby, the

daughter of the prime minister

who reveals top secret information

during a speech competition.

The speech, which was livestreamed,

did not end well

because the information would

have been misinterpreted by the

audience in Japan.

Gabby and her friends have

to stop the information from

reaching Japan to prevent World

War 3.

and Angus Morton reading their original play at Plains FM 96.9

A&P show marks 155 years

LIVESTOCK AND equestrian

judges from across the globe

will descend on Christchurch

in mid-November as New

Zealand’s largest A&P Show

turns 155-years-old.

More than 500 people volunteer

at the Canterbury A&P

Show every year and around 120

of those volunteers are judges,

with some coming from as far as

the United States this year.

Canterbury A&P Association

president Peter Gilbert said the

calibre of judges is one of the

reasons the Canterbury A&P

Show is seen as New Zealand’s

most prestigious A&P event.

“Bringing these judges in from

overseas is a huge drawcard for

our competitors. Not only do

they bring extensive international

experience, it’s also extra

confirmation for our competitors

that their stock is the best of

the best as they’re being judged

by someone completely new,” he

said.

This year the Canterbury A&P

Show will host a Royal A&P

dairy cattle event, which has

prompted the appointment of

Mark Rueth from Wisconsin,

US.

Mr Rueth owns Rosedale

Genetics, has sold embryos in

10 countries and has judged at

top level shows and expos in the

France, Switzerland and Mexico.

He also currently serves on

the World Dairy Cattle Show

Committee.

Mr Gilbert said it is not just

the overseas judges that bring

a wealth of knowledge to the

event.

“We also have judges coming

from across New Zealand, many

of whom have decades of experience

both here and overseas. A

lot of these people have worked

in the industry for a long time,

forging their careers in genetics,

owning their own studs or

just being incredibly passionate

about stock judging. Some have

volunteered for many years at

our show too. We can’t thank

them enough for lending their

time and expertise.”

With entries closing in a couple

of weeks, Mr Gilbert urged

exhibitors to get their entries in.

“Not only is it a great opportunity

to win prizes and

awards, it’s also a chance to

swap knowledge and ideas with

other exhibitors and learn from

judges too.

“You can’t beat the chance to

catch up with old friends and

meet other like-minded people.

It’s a very special event and my

family and I cherish the friendships

that have come from the

show over the years,” he said.

•The 2017 Canterbury

A&P Show will take place

from November 15-17 at

Canterbury Agricultural

Park.

•$100,000 of prizes are

up for grabs across 3000

classes and 6500 entries

TITLE:

Lincoln A

celebrate

their fifth

straight title

and remain

unbeaten

over the

last three

seasons.

Fifth title for invincible Lincoln

• By Gordon Findlater

LINCOLN PROVED unbeatable

for a third straight season when

they claimed the Selwyn Netball

Centre premier title with a 57-47

win over Broadfield on Saturday.

It was Lincoln’s fifth straight title

and continued an unbeaten run

for the team which stretches back

to start of the 2015 season.

“We do have quite the run going

on and we’d like it to continue,”

said Lincoln player/coach Vanessa

Robinson.

Saturday’s final against Broadfield

was no walk in the park with

injuries requiring two players from

the Lincoln B team to step into the

squad for the biggest match of the

season.

Although the team is more than

used to playing in the final, there

were still plenty of early nerves.

“It was a really tough battle.

[Broadfield] came out firing and it

took us about 15min to settle into

the game,” said Robinson.

As the game progressed, Lincoln

seized control. Robinson highlighted

the play of centre Char

Porima, and goal-shooter Hannah

Wilson, who made 41 of her 46

shot attempts.

“For a final that’s pretty outstanding,”

said Robinson.

The team are very keen to

continue the unbeaten run in

2018 but, for now, they will enjoy

celebrating another title.

“We’re very good at celebrating.

We hit Lincoln and then we hit my

place. The boys were watching the

rugby and the girls were partying,”

said Robinson.

Finals results:

Premier one: Lincoln 57,

Broadfield 47.

Premier two: Burnham 53,

Lincoln B 37.

Premier three: Templeton

61, Lincoln C 45.

Lincoln make quarter-finals in

national football tournament

• By Gordon Findlater

LINCOLN HIGH School

achieved their best ever result at

the national secondary school

football tournament, finishing

sixth in Taupo last week.

The second day of the weeklong

tournament was one to

remember not just for Lincoln,

but for central defender-comestriker

Jacob Anderson.

Starting the day, Lincoln

needed a victory in their final

pool game against Tauranga

Boys’ College to qualify for the

round of 16.

Tied at two-all with just

minutes remaining, Lincoln

were awarded an indirect free

kick which was slotted home by

Anderson. The 18-year-old was

then the hero again just hours

later when he scored another

90th-minute winner, which saw

his side defeat Otago Boys’ High

School 2-1 in the round of 16.

Anderson has played in the

central defence for Lincoln most

of the season but was at striker

throughout the tournament,

a move that ended up paying

dividends.

Lincoln were defeated by

tournament runners-up

Auckland’s Sacred Heart

College in the quarter-final 0-4,

before recording a 2-1 win over

Wellington’s St Patrick’s College

and a 0-2 loss to Saint Kentigern

College from Auckland, to

finish the 32-strong tournament

in sixth.

On day one, Lincoln started

their first two pool games with

a 2-1 win over Auckland’s St

Peter’s College before going

down 1-2 to St Patrick’s College.

It was also a successful

week for the girls first XI who

Wanaka’s Mt Aspiring College

7-8.

Their first win came in their

final pool play game, comfortably

accounting for Roncalli College

In the quarter-final, Lincoln

brushed aside Rangiora High

School 33-3, before defeating

Ashburton College 17-7 in the

Barnes plans to play

mystery set in Lincoln

• By Bridget Rutherford

JIMMY BARNES hasn’t

decided what songs he will

play at March’s Selwyn

Sounds.

He will choose on the

day when he sees the

crowd.

“I get to a set and I have

a look at the audience

– what are they doing,

are they having a good

time? And I’ll pick the set

accordingly,” he said.

One thing’s for sure – he

plans to “rock out” and

give the crowd a good

show.

The legendary Aussie

rocker will headline the

day-long music festival at

Lincoln Domain on March

3.

It follows this year’s

inaugural event, which saw

Jordan Luck Band, Mi-Sex,

Dragon and other Kiwi

heavyweights play in front

of about 10,000 people.

Barnes, who now lives in

the Southern Highlands,

New South Wales, said he

couldn’t be sure if he had

visited Lincoln before.

But he enjoyed playing

in small towns. It took him

back to where he started as

lead singer in Cold Chisel,

he said.

“I’m looking forward to

it, it’s a beautiful part of

the country,” he said.

“I like to support the

area, especially after the

earthquakes.”

When his music career

began in the 1970s, he

never imagined some of

the songs would still be

crowd favourites today, he

said.

Khe Sanh, which was

recorded in 1976, was an

example, he said.

“When you get up and

play it, you can see young

and old and they’re all

he’s looking forward to headlining the next Selwyn

Sounds. ​

there singing it. The song

is as relevant now as it

was then. How it connects

with people, it makes it all

worth it.”

And, in spite of being

one of the best-selling

Australian music rockers

of all time, Barnes said

he enjoyed a variety of

genres.

He was a big fan of

Ray Charles, Stevie

Wonder, Paul Rodgers,

Stevie Marriott, Bruce

Springsteen, Neil Finn and

even Sia.

Barnes, who changed

his last name from Swan,

was born in Glasgow and

emigrated to Adelaide as a

five-year-old.

Selwyn Sounds will be

a real family affair from

Barnes. His kids, Jackie,

Elly-May and EJ, and

wife Jane will perform

alongside him in Lincoln.

Barnes said he wasn’t

sure whether he would

be staying in Lincoln or

for how long, but if so, he

would likely be out and

about looking for a nice

place to eat.

So would he make an

impromptu performance?

“You never know.”

NEW CORRECTIONS recruit

Charmaine Shaw is using her

skills as the manager of the

South Island Scorpions rugby

league team in her new career as

a frontline officer.

She is working at Christchurch

Women’s Prison after completing

her 12-week Corrections officer

development pathway course. She

was presented with the minister’s

excellence award acknowledging

the leadership, passion and

professionalism she displayed

throughout her training.

Mrs Shaw, of Halswell, says

there are parallels between the

skills she has honed through her

involvement with the Scorpions

and the approach she takes every

day working in the prison.

“You have to be dedicated and

loyal to the task at hand,” she says.

“Just like training for rugby

league, you have to be committed

whether it’s in the sunshine

or in the pouring rain. You learn

to take the not so good days with

the really good days and recognise

that’s just the way life rolls

sometimes. You can’t get hung

up on the negatives.

“It’s like losing a game where

you learn from what didn’t work

well, accept the loss and maybe

try a different strategy next time.

“In the Scorpions, we want to

encourage the young players to

be good young men who will

grow up to be good husbands

and fathers. You want them to be

positive contributors to society

and get them to take all the opportunities

given to them.

“We look for talent and skill on

the field, but the players’ attitude

is their most important attribute.

In a split second a person’s attitude

can take them to a good

place or a bad place – I’m looking

for the same thing with the

women in prison I work with.”

Mrs Shaw says her work in

education, with youth and with

people with mental health issues

has helped with her understanding

of her new role. Her knowledge

of Te Reo Maori will also

be put to great use in the prison’s

programmes.

“I am proud to be Maori, the

statistics for Maori in prisons

are not very good and I want to

be a positive Maori role model

to the people I work with daily,”

she said.

“I feel very humbled to be in a

role where I can influence others

and utilise my people skills to

assist and guide others to want to

be better people and change their

lives so that they never return to

prison.”

The Corrections officer

development pathway is a new

training package for custodial officers

that blends on-the-job and

SKILLS:

Charmaine

Shaw is

making

a mark in

her role at

Christchurch

Women’s

Prison.

Fire rages, homes at risk

staff have a key role in progressing

learners along the pathway.

“I absolutely loved college and

the experiences we had,” said

Mrs Shaw.

“Our facilitators were engaging,

supportive and passionate in

giving us the foundation tools we

needed to start in our new roles

on the frontline.

“The camaraderie of both my

Christchurch-based colleagues

and also my wider training

cohort was a huge driving force

behind my learning,” she says.

“I am loving being at Christchurch

Women’s Prison. It is a

great place to start my career and

there are plenty of opportunities

to continue learning.”

Christchurch Women’s Prison

director Wayne McKnight says

although Mrs Shaw is new to

Corrections she is already making

her mark.

“The skills she already learnt

leading to her career change to

Corrections have put her in a

good place for this role. Working

in a prison can be extremely

challenging but also rewarding.”

“Much like sports management,

it is all about people,

mentoring and looking for that

opportunity to influence change.

You need to be patient, supportive

and constantly watching for

that opportunity.”

How to control leaf curl in peach trees

• By Sarah Frater

LEAF CURL (Taphrina

deformans) is a common fungal

disease that effects peach,

nectarine, peachcott, and

peacherine trees.

It causes the leaves (and some

times the fruit) of the infected

tree to become puckered, curled

and much thicker than normal. If

left untreated the problem will get

worse year-after-year and reduce

the tree’s ability to produce lots of

fruit.

Over winter the fungal spores

take up residence in different

parts of the tree, but mainly in the

buds. When the cool wet weather

of spring and summer arrives

many leaf curl spores are produced

and are then splashed or

blown from tree to tree. Because

this is also the time the trees are

breaking bud and forming new

leaves, the new growth is easily

reinfected with leaf curl.

Controlling leaf curl isn’t easy

but good orchard hygiene habits,

which should be repeated each

year, will give you the best chance.

First of all, plant your trees

where they will get adequate air

movement – this will help minimise

fungal problems.

In spring apply a light dressing

of a quick acting fertiliser such as

sulphate of ammonia to encourage

new leaf growth. At the same

time, I also recommend applying

a seaweed fertiliser to help the

plants’ immunity to leaf curl.

If you do get leaf curl, during

spring is when you will notice it

in your trees. Once you notice

the symptoms of leaf curl in your

NATURE’S BOUNTY: If left untreated leaf curl will get worse year-after-year and reduce a tree’s

ability to produce fruit.

leaves it is too late to control the

disease in those leaves but there is

lots you can to do try and stop the

fungus from spreading.

The first step is to remove and

destroy as many infected leaves as

practical. But don’t compost these

as it will spread the infection.

In autumn and early winter

clean up around the base of any

peach and nectarine trees and

removing as many leaves as possible.

Because these types of trees are

susceptible to leaf curl, I suggest

doing this regardless of whether

they’ve shown any signs of

disease. And, again remember –

don’t compost the leaves.

Next, you should spray your

deciduous trees (the trees that

lose their leaves every year) with

lime sulphur.

The lime sulphur acts by

burning off the over wintering

fungi and pests, including mites.

It’s very important you do this

for gooseberry bushes because

they are prone to catching mites

which can eat out the flower buds,

meaning your bush ends up with

no fruit. Luckily, the lime sulphur

will get rid of those mites.

But I don’t recommend applying

it to your apricot trees

because they can be sensitive to

lime, so it’s best just to avoid it.

Around now, in late winter/

spring (and don’t worry if you

haven’t done any of the other

steps yet – just start now), apply

a copper-based fungicide to all

your deciduous fruit trees – not

just peach trees. A copper-based

fungicide will help stop leaf curl

on peach and nectarine trees but

it will also treat fungal problems

on other fruit trees – like black

spot on apple trees.

I also recommend mixing

in the copper fungicide with a

spreader/sticker, which you can

get from your local garden centre.

It works a bit like soap.

Combined with the fungicide,

it will make the whole area you

spray wet and then when it dries

it sticks to the area so you get

good coverage that sticks or stays

on the tree for a long time.

The copper fungicide (and

spreader/sticker) should be applied

while the leaf and flower

buds are still closed – right before

the buds burst. Spray thoroughly

as you need to create a surface

barrier.

Then follow this up with

another spray 10-14 days later –

particularly if you’ve had lots of

wet weather. This will ensure the

trees get the coverage they need.

Once you have flower buds

showing it’s really important not

to spray copper, as it’s very toxic

to bees when it’s wet – though

fine once it’s dried. And it’s also

past the point of the copper being

effective as the idea of the copper

is to add a protectant layer over

the buds, before they burst.

And that’s it for the year. Now,

you just have to go back to the

beginning of the process and

repeat all of the steps – except for

applying copper fungicide.

Because copper is a heavy metal

it can build up in the soil. It’s also

very toxic to bees when wet so

should only be used when necessary.

If in the past year your trees

showed no signs of disease just skip

the copper step the following year.

But, if they are newly-planted

trees; or were effected by fungus

or disease; or you had a wet

winter; or you didn’t spray with

lime sulphur, then you should still

apply copper fungicide.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

Answer:

What should I be doing to my lawn at this time of the year?

(So that it’s stays healthy and green throughout Spring and Summer)

After the wet winter that we have had, lawns

are looking rather sad. Yellow foliage, lots of

moss, and the ground has compacted with

the wet. Once the grass has started to grow and the first cut has been made,

you can start the renovation of the lawn.

First, it is important that the grass is not cut too low

and that the clippings are removed. To improve the

aeration of the ground it can be cored using a coring

tool and the resulting holes filled with lawn mix, sand

or potting mix. If extra seed is required to cover bare

patches, you can add that in as well. A garden fork

worked back and forward will do the job for areas

not too compacted. Moss may be treated with iron

sulphate or any of the liquid moss control products

but it is important to follow the instructions on the

label accurately. After the 2nd or 3rd cut, you can

now apply lawn fertiliser. Intelligro have a great

lawn fertiliser that will help to promote dense leaf

growth – reducing space for weeds, it helps to

develop the grass at the roots, and also has iron

sulphate added to help control moss. Separate

weed control may be done once the temperatures

warm up later in September.

As we draw closer and closer to the warmer, drier weather

we need to remember to establish a regular watering

pattern. This extends to all areas of the garden, not just the

lawn. Make a plan to give your lawn and plants a good

soak of water every few days. This is far more effective than

a light sprinkle each day.

Take time to plant popular lettuce

• By Henri Ham

SPRING IS officially here.

It’s the busiest time of the year

in the garden and one plant to

get in now is lettuce.

It’s not surprising lettuce is

a popular plant to grow at this

time of year.

They grow well in these

conditions and, in my opinion,

there’s just something about the

warmer weather that makes you

want to enjoy salad.

It’s funny now to think that

back in the day we used to

harvest the whole lettuce when

it was ready.

Those were the days when iceberg

was all the rage. But now,

as most of us know, with many

of the types of lettuce you can

just pick off the leaves you need

at the time and leave the plant

growing.

Probably the hardest part

about growing lettuce is deciding

which type to plant. That’s

why I’m a big fan of growing a

couple of several varieties.

Once you’ve got your lettuce

seedlings look for somewhere

well-drained and sheltered to

plant them. If you don’t have

much space, try growing them

in pots or even hanging baskets.

The great thing about growing

them in containers is you

can make them easily accessible

to your kitchen.

When you’ve found the right

spot to plant, dig a little hole

and plant each seedling around

20cm apart.

Try not to overcrowd your

seedlings to prevent fungal

diseases.

Watch out for slugs.

DELICATE: Plant

your seedlings in a

well-drained and

sheltered part of the

garden.

SALAD: Pick off a

leaf or two and your

lettuce plant will keep

growing.

EVEN BETTER ACCESS

TO INTELLIGRO!

The contractors have opened up access to Intelligro from both ends of Manion

Road now, meaning the Main South Road entrance is officially closed.

Access to Intelligro from Manion Road is now available from both the Weedons Ross Road, and

Curraghs Road entrances. This will make it much easier, and safer to get to and from Intelligro!

If you are accessing Intelligro from

Main South Road heading north, turn

left at Weedons Ross Road and Manion

Road is on your right hand side just

before the railway.

JONES ROAD

ROLLESTON

Diesel expertise in Rolleston

Those who have driven down Jones Road recently, may

have noticed another new business has opened there.

Diesel Fix moved to its new and more

spacious building in Jones Road in

July, having previously been based in

Springston.

Owned by Phil Thompson and Kylie

Eastwood, who moved to Rolleston over

10 years ago, Diesel Fix has been operating

for nearly three years with the business

growing substantially in that time.

Phil is an automotive and diesel fuel

injection engineer. He completed trade

qualifications in each along with training

courses over a number of years at the

Bosch headquarters in Melbourne. Along

with over 30 years experience in fuel

injection, Phil knows just about everything

there is to know in the field.

After many years working for others,

Phil decided it was time to go out on his

own, initially running a curbing business.

People were continuously asking him

to carry out diesel repairs so he started

purchasing specialised equipment then

decided to set up Diesel Fix.

Diesel Fix offers a wide range of services

from fuel injection pump reconditioning

to injector reconditioning, common

rail injectors, Efi injector servicing,

compression testing and vehicle scanning.

The business is equipped with the most

recent diagnostic equipment and staff

carry out other general automotive

servicing as required.

Phil also carries a large range of

reconditioned injector pumps and

injectors for exchange, and supplies new

common rail injectors as well as other

diesel parts.

Supporting Phil is partner, Kylie who

looks after the administrative work. The

couple says moving the business to Jones

Road has been great as it offers Diesel Fix

a higher profile while also being a handy

location for their customers who are

based in the city and right across Selwyn

including Rolleston.

Customers can drop off or courier their

pumps and other parts to Diesel Fix,

which is open from 8am-5pm, Mondays

to Fridays and Saturdays, 9am-1pm. It is a

good idea to book repair work in, however

if wanting advice from Phil pop into 821

Jones Road, Rolleston or give him a call on

0274 368 154 or 03 347 7108.

Diesel Fix is now at

821 Jones Road.

generates making power bills almost nonexistent,

the private rural setting or maybe

even the closeness to the new aquatic centre

and sports grounds ,one thing is absolutely

certain, this home truly needs to be explored to

be fully appreciated.

With two ensuites and two good sized living

areas, kitchen with walk-in scullery, the

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

The pros and cons of building sites

When selecting a building site weigh up

your lifestyle, family needs and aspirations

before signing up for any section.

Those purchasing early on in the

development of a subdivision will have

more choice of section size and orientation

to the street and sun. As the individual

sites are sold, there may be less availability

though this need not be a deterrent. With

good design any building site can be made

to work.

Selwyn has experienced considerable

growth in recent years. Sub-divisions

have opened up and been built on, with

new developments regularly coming on

stream. Within these, section sizes vary

from around 400 square metres upwards

to 5,000 square metres. Lifestyle blocks are

also scattered around the district.

The size of the house and amount of

yard desired will influence the feasibility

of some building sites as will sun and wind

direction, bearing in mind that a house

can be designed to capture the sun’s free

heat and allow for pleasant outdoor areas

to enjoy.

If the street side of the building site is

north/north west, incorporating fenced or

planted courtyards can offer private places

to entertain and bask in the sun.

Those wanting street presence or keen

on gardening may prefer a corner section

and while it might seem they offer less

privacy, with strategic placement of fences

quite the opposite can be the case.

Weigh up your family’s needs in terms

of the outdoor areas too. Do you want play

areas for your children? Do you have a

need for off-street parking for a number of

vehicles and space for a boat, caravan or

motorhome, which may need to be parked

out of site of the street? How much lawn or

garden do you want?

Start by identifying housing

developments that you like and could see

your family living in. Think also about the

convenience of shops and other amenities,

something that may or may not be a

concern.

Single out possible sections then talk

with a designer or builder. Most building

companies have a good selection of

standard plans as a starting point and they

will usually work with a client to modify

a plan or draw up one that will work

on a particular building site, whilst also

containing the components the client is

seeking within their new home.

Before signing up for any building

site, check the Council land zoning and

recession plane requirements as well as

covenants for the sub-division. These will

show not only how far from a boundary

the house can be sited but also roof

height, permissible building materials,

and acceptable types of fencing, as well as

what can be on view from the street like

a clothes line, caravan or motorhome.

Conducting your research first will save

any frustration or hassles later.

All sections are workable, it is simply a

matter of choosing one that matches your

specific needs.

Getting what

you paid for on

settlement day

13

In the movies, the day someone gets

the keys to their newly bought home is

portrayed as a golden, stress-free time. The

reality can be rather different, especially

if you find your dream home has turned

into something akin to Nightmare On

Elm Street since you agreed to buy it.

“The trick to a stress-free settlement

is to do as much as you can in advance,

starting with when you’re signing the sale

and purchase agreement,” advises Kevin

Lampen-Smith, chief executive of the

Real Estate Agents Authority (REAA).

“The sale and purchase agreement is the

legally-binding contract agreed between

you and the seller that details the property,

the conditions of sale and the price.

Make sure that there is an agreed list of

chattels, with notes as to their condition,

in this agreement. If the property is full of

rubbish, and you want it gone before you

take possession, make that a condition of

the sale. If there are holes in the fence that

the seller has promised to fix, get that in

writing on the agreement: don’t rely on

verbal assurances that something will be

done prior to settlement. It’s far better

to get all these niggly details sorted out

before you sign the agreement than face

protracted battles down the track.”

As a buyer, you are generally entitled to

one opportunity to inspect the property

before settlement day. If the property has

sitting tenants, ask your lawyer to ensure

there is a ‘final inspection’ clause inserted

in the sale and purchase agreement before

you sign it. This inspection is to make

sure that it is in the same or better order

it was when you viewed it and agreed to

the sale. It is not designed to give you the

chance to uncover new defects, or to give

a rental agent the chance to appraise the

place’s value.

“A seller does not have to accommodate

any extra requests to visit the property

prior to settlement,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Remember that the seller may have a

lot on their plate; making the property

available so your interior decorator can

measure up for new curtains is unlikely

to be a high priority.”

Your real estate agent will usually

arrange the inspection with the seller,

and accompany you to the property. Most

experts recommend that this inspection

takes place around 24 hours before

settlement day so there are no hold-ups

to the transfer of funds and ownership.

When you come to inspect the property,

everything should be as it was when you

decided to purchase it (as reflected by the

sale and purchase agreement). Lampen-

Smith says you can expect chattels to be in

a reasonable working order unless it has

been agreed and documented otherwise.

You cannot complain to the seller that

the oven isn’t clean enough, but you can

raise a complaint if it is missing, or it is

a different model to the one cited in the

agreement. Don’t forget to check that

garage door openers and pool covers are

in situ, or that locks work properly.

If there is a problem, the REAA says

you should speak to the real estate agent

and your lawyer in the first instance. They

can help you negotiate with the seller to

remedy any issues, such as a newly broken

window or missing keys. Your lawyer

should work with the seller’s lawyer to

reach a satisfactory solution, such as

getting the seller to make any necessary

repairs, or to deduct any costs from the

eventual settlement.

Making the final inspection 24 hours

before settlement is due gives you and the

seller time to reach an agreement over

anything outstanding. This is important,

because if you do not complete settlement

on the due date and the seller can

demonstrate that they were able and

willing to complete their side of the

settlement, then you will be liable for

interest on any portion of the purchase

price that is unpaid. The seller does not

need to give you access to the property

while any amount remains outstanding.

“Like any property transaction, success

often depends on doing things right at the

start,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Get the details right at the beginning

and you’ve got a greater chance of a happy

ending.”
