Firefighter’s helmet coughs up cash

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LOOSE CHANGE from

generous patrons stopping by

at a hotel in Lincoln has raised

more than $2000 for the town’s

fire brigade.

The Lincoln Volunteer Fire

Brigade broke open a helmet

of cash on Sunday, after it had

been sitting at the bar of The

Famous Grouse Hotel for about

18 months.

The $2040 will go towards

equipment needed by the

brigade.

Station officer Steve McLennan

said he would like to thank the

patrons at the hotel for their

generosity.

Mr McLennan said while the

brigade gets funding from Fire

and Emergency New Zealand

there is always something extra

needed in the community.

The brigade has another

helmet at the Tai Tapu Hotel

and is hoping to set up others at

The Laboratory and Springston

Hotel.

The Famous Grouse Hotel

manager Will Stock said it

is good how much has been

contributed and will have the

helmet ready to collect further

donations.

“The guys do a good job so it

is good to be able to give back,”

he said.

Pool at

Prebbleton

School

to be

demolished

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PREBBLETON IS about to lose its

community swimming pool.

The pool, at Prebbleton School,

is to be demolished to make way

for four modern classrooms.

A date has not been set for the

pool’s demolition.

The redevelopment will cater for

the school’s rapidly growing roll,

which is expected to reach 600 by

2019.

The Ministry of Education is

working with the school on a

masterplan for its redevelopment.

The new teaching spaces are

scheduled to be complete in 2019

and will cost about $2 million.

The unheated pool, which only

operates in the summer, is owned

by the MoE.

The pool has not been used by

the school since 2005 because

it was deemed too small for the

growing roll and unsuitable for

taking a classroom for swimming

lessons.

At the time, a public meeting

was called by Deputy Mayor

Malcolm Lyall to create a pool

committee which set about painting,

tidying and operating it.

Mr Lyall said the committee

and the district council managed

to lease the pool off the MoE for

another 12 years.

Ratepayers’ association

fired up over cost of Weedons pavilion

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE DEBATE over how the new

community pavilion at Weedons

Reserve is funded has fired up

again.

The Weedons Residents’

Association committee is

concerned ratepayers are bearing

the brunt of the cost of a facility

they may not get any use out of.

A budget of about $800,000 is

estimated for the new pavilion,

with discussions ongoing for the

last eight years.

Weedons ratepayers are

currently paying $14 per year

towards the new pavilion and

$80 towards the recreation

reserve fee.

Committee secretary Gary

Doyle said ratepayers were

initially paying $54 per year

until he argued against it and the

amount was reduced to $14.

In the past it has been an

issue, with Mr Doyle previously

making a deputation to the

district council alleging the

Weedons Reserve Committee,

which is behind the plan, is

dominated by sports players.

But at the time, the reserve

committee’s chairman Peter

Holmes said the reserve

was well-represented by the

community.

Mr Doyle told Selwyn Times

last week it wants to build a

cricket club building rather than

a community facility.

But Mr Holmes said this

was not the case and the whole

idea is for it to be a community

building.

The district council’s major

projects property manager

John Reid said discussions

over contributions made by the

user groups of the domain are

ongoing. He said while designs

are not complete, the building

will include a lounge, a small

kitchen, two dressing rooms and

some public toilet facilities.

The issue has flared up again

after information under the

Local Government Official

Information Act revealed the

Weedons Tennis Club had made

no contribution towards the cost

of shifting as part of the reserve’s

development.

The tennis courts have been

moved and realigned to allow

for a larger cricket oval for the

Weedons Cricket Club as part

of the community pavilion

redevelopment.

Information from the district

council’s corporate services

manager Greg Bell said the

tennis court upgrade cost

$162,601 plus GST and 65 per

cent of this is estimated to have

come from ratepayers.

Mr Holmes said the tennis

club has put at least $2000

towards the courts upgrade.

Tennis Club secretary Julie

Cockburn said there is a high

chance the tennis club will have

to put funding into the overall

upgrade because of a shortfall.

Sponsorship has also been

made by various companies.

“I am not too sure why

residents would be upset about

trying to upgrade a facility

right next to them . . . it gives

Weedons an identity rather than

being part of Rolleston,” she said.

SELWYN TIMES

Carla Weber

Stage is set for actress and

Carla Weber of Rolleston lives and breathes

musical theatre. She directed the Halswell Drama

Group’s successful production of The Wedding

Singer, which finished on Saturday. She spoke to

Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Was The Wedding Singer the

first show you directed?

No, I directed Nunsense for

the drama group as well. Last

year was the first time doing it

by myself as the only director.

Two or three years prior to that

it was a joint effort with one

or two other members of the

group. We decided last year to

try something different and I put

my hand up and said I will direct

and here I am.

Have you been involved in the

Halswell Drama Group for a

long time?

My first year was back in 2007

when I was new to the group and

I got a lead role for Last Gasp at

the Parched Throat Saloon and I

was the head cancan dancer Miss

Candy. I did have two or three

years off because I was busy with

family life. I became president in

2014. It has all kind of started to

grow.

Were you always interested in

the arts?

I go way back. My parents were

into shows. I can’t remember

my dad being on stage but I

remember seeing my mum in the

orchestra pit way down in Gore.

I think I went to my first show

when I was about five or six and

I knew sitting there, watching it

and going “that is so cool,” I had

to do something like that. I have

always loved doing plays and

my first big real show was Joseph

and the Amazing Technicolor

Dreamcoat back when I was a

teenager. I was with the then

Gore Operatic Society. They have

been going since about 1967 if

not before.

Did you grow up in Gore?

I did grow up in Gore. I lived

on a farm. I never went to a

high school in Gore. I went

to Menzies College down in

Wyndham. It was a rural high

school for year 7 to 13. My father

always used to say I was a towney

born in the countryside by

mistake. I enjoyed being around

people more than the animals

and the farm, so I tended to be

Have you played instruments

up here in Canterbury?

I have been teaching piano up

here for a few years – piano and

flute. I also played in the Canterbury

Philharmonia and

in the orchestra for Kirwee

Players. But since I have got my

wee boy Sam, I am a full time

mum at the moment. I don’t

have time to do much in the day

which is why I tend to do theatre

at night.

What do you think of the arts

in Selwyn?

I think personally to have a

drama group or a musical

theatre group in Rolleston would

be amazing. In the Halswell

Drama Group, there are people

who come from Leeston,

Lincoln, Rolleston, West Melton.

There is nothing in Rolleston so

to speak. If something happened

here I think it would be wellreceived.

What has it been like putting

The Wedding Singer together?

I live and breathe it pretty

much. Planning is high on the

list, creativity and with the

support of many others. It does

take a village to put on the show.

That is the joy of community

theatre.

Would The Wedding Singer

be one of your favorite shows

you have been involved in?

That is a really tricky question.

There are so many shows,

there is so much you don’t know

about a show and it is not until

you get into it you learn to love

it. At the moment this is my favourite

but next year depending

on what we might do, that might

be my favourite. You put so

much effort into it and then you

get it to the stage and go wow all

that work was worth it. It is is a

good feeling knowing audiences

are enjoying it.

Did you ever work in another

industry or have you always

been involved in the arts?

I worked in retail. I started

working in a music shop and I

sold musical instruments, records,

tapes and CDs – way back

in the day. I did a bit of a stint in

furniture and a stint in a hardware

store but once I moved to

Rolleston in 2004, I did a bit of

music teaching as well.

What do you think of the

Rolleston community?

It is so different compared to

when I first got here. When I

first arrived there was only one

primary school, one supermarket

and literally within the first

two years of my girls going to

GIFTED: Carla Weber has a

passion for playing various

instruments including the

flute.

PHOTO:

GILBERT WEALLEANS

Rolleston School the numbers

literally almost doubled in a

couple of years.

With the township growing

are there any new facilities you

would like to see put in place?

Obviously a performing arts

centre. That would be really

good. Then we can get touring

people to come in. We have

got opportunities local groups

might use in some form or

another. I think within in the

last couple of years, with Selwyn

arts coming to the floor more, I

think it would be well received.

There are so many people out

in Rolleston now. Sometimes

people don’t want to travel 30-

40min to do something, they

want it on their doorstep.

Tell me about your children?

I remarried four or five years

ago. I have got my two girls

from the previous marriage and

from the next marriage I have

one son. One of my daughters –

Nikita – is very much into theatre

she is in The Wedding Singer

and has been in the Halswell

Drama Group for the last four to

five shows. She plays a lot of instruments.

She loves it so much

and my husband Darren has

been the musical director for the

past few shows for the Kirwee

Players and was in he band for

The Wedding Singer. My husband

is in a cover band called

General Admission. He is head

of music department at Lincoln

High School. My other daughter

Brittany loves playing the guitar

and she has done many years

of dance. More recently in the

last few years guitar has become

more of a focus for her. I am

sure little Sam will grow up doing

a bit of music stuff.

School pool to be demolished

•From page 1

“I always thought with the

growing roll of the school one day

the MoE will come knocking and

say we want land to put another

building on . . . unfortunately that

day has come.”

Principal Kim Alexander said

the pool wasn’t suitable for swimming

lessons because it was deep

in the middle and designed like a

diving pool.

She said the board of trustees

supported MoE’s decision to

remove it because the space could

be maximised.

The decision has also been supported

by the district council.

District council’s community

relations manager Denise Kidd

said while the district council is

in the process of reviewing its

aquatic facilities plan, it was not

contemplating a replacement pool

for Prebbleton.

“The plan indicates that the

demand from Prebbleton can

be met through the planned

expansion of the Selwyn Aquatic

Centre,” she said.

But Prebbleton resident Stephanie

Broomhall said she was

concerned the community was

not consulted on the closure.

She is one of several Prebbleton

residents who want the pool to

stay open.

“My kids get such enjoyment

in the summer going down to the

pool and having a swim. They get

to meet with people in the community

. . . that alone, for me, that

pool is worth keeping.”

But MoE head of education

infrastructure services Kim

Shannon said it was not required

to consult for the demolition of

a Ministry-owned asset, just the

school.

Call for slower speed in Kirwee

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

KIRWEE’S CHIEF fire officer

wants urgent action taken on an

intersection he says is a death

trap.

Stuart Jones is calling for the

speed limit on State Highway

73 within the Kirwee township

to be lowered from 70km/h to

50km/h to improve safety at the

Courtenay Rd intersection.

“I have been there 40 years

and there have been numerous

accidents. Nobody has been

killed there but they are about

to be,” Mr Jones said.

It comes after a boom in traffic

over the past six years, with

the average number of vehicles

travelling through Kirwee increasing

by about 1700 per day.

New Zealand Transport

Agency data shows the average

daily traffic count on State

Highway 73 south of Kirwee

had grown from 3909 in 2011 to

5626 in 2016.

But changes to the speed

limits are unlikely.

NZTA senior traffic and safety

engineer David Scarlet said

the numbers recorded indicated

few crashes at the intersection

and consequently little need for

intervention.

In the past six years NZTA

recorded six minor and non-injury

crashes at the intersection.

But Mr Jones said there had

been about four accidents in the

past 12 months.

One concern he had was vehicles

travelling into the township

not slowing down until they

passed the 70km/h speed signs

located on the outskirts of

Kirwee.

“We have got cars coming in

easily doing 100km/h at that

intersection,” he said.

But Darfield Police senior

constable David Pitkethley said

people are not stopping at stop

signs which is the main issue.

“We get that at just about any

intersection really, people don’t

stop,” he said.

But Mr Pitkethley

said to have the speed

limits lowered would

be a bonus as there

wouldn’t be as many issues

at the intersection.

Mr Jones said the

whole area is congested

in peak times.

“School times we have got

buses stopping there, the whole

nine yards. People are trying to

pull out and there are kids for

Africa,” he said.

Kirwee Model School acting

Bob Norrish

DANGEROUS:

Kirwee’s chief

fire officer is

calling for the

speed limit to

be lowered on

State Highway

73 within the

township.

principal Bob Norrish said

while there isn’t much congestion

around the school

located on School Lane,

some of his staff had

mentioned it is difficult

to drive out onto State

Highway 73.

“I think consideration

of 50km/h through there

would be worthwhile,”

he said.

“We have allowed space for our

that means we can offer a logistics

Big turnout

for water

seminars

MORE THAN 1000 people have

attended a attended a seminar

series held to address waterrelated

issues in the district.

The series was established

to reduce tensions between

Environment Canterbury and

residents over how water issues

in the Selwyn-Waihora catchment

are managed.

The Selwyn Waihora Water

Zone Committee reported last

week that its concluded seminar

series at Lincoln University had

attracted at least 1000 people

and that it would be examining

feedback received to inform future

water-related strategies and

programmes.

The series addressed issues

including the state of water quality

and quantity, and the impact

of land-use intensification in the

district.

Between 70 and 130 people attended

each session (the seminar

ran twice each day), with some

travelling from as far afield as

Ashburton.

Selwyn Waihora Water Zone

Committee Chair Allen Lim said

he felt very positive about the

experience and looked forward

to considering all the feedback

received.

Adams thrilled with easy win

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

and Bridget Rutherford

AMY ADAMS reaffirmed her

dominance in Saturday’s general

election, securing the Selwyn

seat for the fourth straight term.

The West Melton resident,

who is no 7 on National’s list,

won the seat with a 17,625

majority over Labour’s Tony

Condon.

She secured

66 per cent of

the electorate’s

candidate votes.

“I am thrilled,

effectively it is

about two-thirds

of all votes cast.

Tony Condon

It is an incredible

privilege

to get that level of support. It is a

real message that the community

is pleased with the way I represented

them,” she said.

Ms Adams secured 25,320

votes, while Mr Condon received

7695.

She had the second largest

majority in the country, after

National’s Mark Mitchell who

won the Rodney electorate with

17,678.

“I don’t worry myself too

much about it. What is important

to me is my community has

given me a strong mandate to

continue as their representative

and that is something I take very

seriously.”

Ms Adams has held the traditionally

blue seat since 2008.

Her majority decreased from

20,561 in the 2014 election.

But she said that was not a

reflection on her campaign.

“My votes have actually stayed

very consistent . . . it is more of a

sign of Labour running a better

campaign than what they did

last time,” Ms Adams said.

National secured 60 per cent

of the party vote in Selwyn,

compared with 63 per cent in

2014. Labour increased its party

vote to 25.5 per cent this year,

from 12.9 per cent in 2014.

Mr Condon said he was pleased

he was able to boost Labour’s

party vote in the electorate.

He said because Selwyn had

always been a blue electorate,

it wasn’t a seat many people

wanted to put their hands up

for, but he was happy with his

campaign.

“I thought we did really well.”

Mr Condon said he would

run again in the 2020 general

election and will look to start

campaigning again in about two

months.

Clare reilly - DanCe of life

In Clare Reilly’s new exhibition, ‘Dance of Life’ she expresses the resilience and tenacity to keep finding

joy and beauty in the natural surroundings. Especially in the hard times, when confronted by the big

challenges in life, that we must all pass through at some stage.

There are events, such as the death of a loved one, that can turn our lives upside down. Finding strength

in nature can help us to stay connected and grounded and bring a sense of being part of the dance of life.

These paintings are meditations on the quiet moments, where we can

step away from everyday stress and become fully present and find a

sense of peace.

They are an invitation to breathe in the moment and dance with life.

We said:

People who travel on

Halswell Junction Rd say

their morning commute

has been halved since the

new traffic signals were

installed

You said:

Genny Cameron – Really?

Didn’t halve my time on Tuesday,

it was backed up to Marshs Rd as

per normal. First couple of days

were great.

Deb Flanagan – So can we

now have lights for Kirk Rd to

enable access in the morning to

the main highway?

Inundated with a steady neverending

flow of traffic flooding in

from Rolleston.

Another three years until new

motorway extension happens

and two deaths already this year.

Jenny Sutherland – Except

when the lights cause a backlog

into the roundabout coming off

the motorway. Can’t win some

days.

Cheryl Haglund was

not impressed when six

roosters mysteriously

appeared on her front lawn

overnight recently

You said:

Veronica Robinson –

Shouldn’t have been dumped.

However, they couldn’t have

been left with anyone kinder

than Cheryl. Lucky roosters.

Christopher Wayne – I’ll

sort your problem out Cheryl.

A few roast potatoes and some

good gravy. Problem solved.

Probably even get some sandwiches

out of them.

Kathryn Macgregor

– Maybe she shouldn’t moan and

if she’s a chook-lover welcome

them and think they’re in a better

place now. I’ve rescued the

odd pet – they cost me an arm

and leg but they’re happier here.

Lyndsey Anselmi – Why

would someone want six extra

crowing roosters? Why shouldn’t

she be annoyed? I am an animal

lover too but don’t expect others

to dump their animals on me

because they’re too lazy to get rid

of them properly.

battle to grow facial hair

– Beware all you nightclub

bouncers, check their IDs. There

might be 16, 17-year-olds or

opened some flood gates, the tail

starting to wag the dog.

Audrey Leslie – Schools are

Donna Brydon – Young men

application in Lincoln

Raeline Ferguson – So

another liquor outlet wants to

But wait, I can hear the

ranks of the righteous

screaming ‘but it’s the

demon alcohol and that

makes it different’. Yes,

alcohol is different, it’s the

‘legal’ drug of choice for

the masses.

More of the population

enjoy consuming it in some

form or other responsibly

than don’t, and we hear

about the don’t often

enough.

Interestingly, if you look

at the statistics on alcohol

consumption on average, it

has been steadily declining

for years.

Which brings me to my

point. If there isn’t enough

room for another alcohol

outlet then surely they

simply won’t survive in the

market place, with their

demise hastened by the

residents of Lincoln who

don’t want it there simply

not frequenting that store?

But again, that’s not how

society seems to work these

days, we must be protected

from ourselves by people

with degrees in something,

or just plain busybodies

who know what’s best for

us.

Put sanctions on those

who abuse alcohol and

leave the rest of us to enjoy

life, with a tipple or two if

we so choose.

A resident responds

to a Selwyn Times

article about a bus

service between

Leeston and

Christchurch

Sue Walders – Seeing

the article on the need for

a service to Leeston I wish

them luck. I saw a small

red bus in Lyttelton last

weekend which could be

ideal for a smaller number

of patrons. That may be all

that Leeston needs. I have

been writing to the powers

that be about our service in

Prebbleton.

I accept that we only have

one route, but since the

change at the last review,

we are no longer able to

get to Church Corner.

Many people in Prebbleton

(and maybe Lincoln) have

doctors, dentists and banks

there. I was told that the

change was to cut traffic

congestion in Riccarton.

Our bus actually rejoins

Riccarton Rd at Wharenui

Rd so passes Westfield

Riccarton where the

maximum traffic passes. I

would like the route to pass

The Hub Hornby and/or

Church Corner, which are

the two nearest shopping

malls. There are more buses

from Hornby so I suggested

one of those could be

diverted to the Blenheim

Rd section as they have a

choice we do not.

It is very hard to find out

when the next review of

routes will be so residents

can have the chance to have

their say.

Native plant art on show

PAINTINGS AND drawings

of native plants will star in

Darfield’s Selwyn Gallery from

tomorrow.

The exhibition is part of a

larger body of work called the

Canterbury Plains Florilegium,

an illustrated record of indigenous

plants.

In modern terms the word

florilegium means a collection of

botanically correct illustrations

of plants-in this case from Riccarton

Bush and the Canterbury

Plains.

The national significance of

Riccarton Bush makes this exhibition

important because it is the

sole remnant of Kahikatea flood

plain forest in Canterbury.

Malvern Community Arts

Council chairman Philip Baldwin

said part of its interest in this

exhibit is botanical art can act

as the interface between art and

science.

“It gives viewers an aesthetic

experience and also educates

them about the botanical subjects

on display,” he said.

The art works on exhibit were

created by members of the Botanical

Art Society of NZ from

2010 to 2013.

The exhibition was created to

help celebrate the 150th birthday

of the Christchurch Botanic

Gardens.

BEAUTY: A rhododendron

painted by Irene Blair will be

on display at Darfield’s Selwyn

Gallery. ​

The aim of the not-for-profit

Botanical Art Society of New

Zealand is to “foster and promote

botanical art and to stimulate

interest in plants, conservation,

horticulture, and the natural

environment.”

The NZ membership ranges

from full-time practising artists

through to passionate amateurs.

Selwyn Gallery will be open

daily (except Mondays) from

10am to 4pm for the duration of

this show.

Build your next home

with Artisan Homes

Your local registered Master Builder

Home building is as much about understanding the

landscape and the client as it is the plan and the

materials. From our office in Rolleston, Canterbury our

small company has built a huge range of homes that are

distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective.

From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses

to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work

spans all types of house building.

Since 2004 we have carefully built, among other things, a

reputation for constructing high quality houses.

An artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular

expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is

passionate about the quality results they produce.

With decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes

have worked in all areas of residential construction. There

are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom

home compared to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our

overall approach remains the same.

While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted

home building we also are renowned for getting the right

result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult

access, looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of

life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered

or licensed. Our abilities to design and build a range of

houses have increased over the years, as has our skill and

overall capacity. While we don’t have the franchises of our

larger competitors we do have their networks and buying

power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective

results possible.

At Artisan Homes, our passion is building homes for

people who appreciate the work that goes into what will,

ultimately, be a home they love to live in.

AVOID: Nearly 75 per cent of the district’s residents acknowledge the high risk

involved in texting while driving.

Risk of texting and

driving acknowledged

NEARLY 75 per cent

of Selwyn residents

acknowledge the high risk

involved in texting while

driving – when drivers

focus on their phone,

they’re not focused on the

road.

THat’s one of the

findings of a recent

survey carried out by the

district council, which is

getting on board with the

nationwide Drive Phone

Free campaign.

The campaign aims to

increase driver awareness

that talking on the phone,

texting or even checking

a hand-held mobile phone

while driving puts them

and other road users at

risk.

The survey also found

more than 50 per cent of

people knew when the

cellphone law came into

legislation.

The same amount knew

what the penalty for using

a hand-held cellphone

while driving was.

The district council’s

road safety co-ordinator

Ngaire Tinning said it’s

not just ourselves we have

to think about when driving.

“We can all do our part

in increasing road safety

by not using phones in

any way when driving, but

we should also encourage

others to do the same,” she

said.

In November 2009 a law

was introduced making

it illegal to use hand-held

mobile phones while driving.

This includes making,

receiving or terminating

a phone call, creating,

sending or even reading a

text or email and creating,

sending or viewing a video

message.

Hands-free devices are

often considered as a solution

to minimise the risk

of driver distraction.

A district council media

release said while handsfree

devices decrease

visual risk (taking drivers

off the road), it does not

minimise cognitive distraction

meaning drivers’

minds are not focused on

the road.

The district council is

asking residents to keep an

eye on its Facebook page

over the next month for

weekly posts and prizes to

be won to encourage drivers

to drive phone-free.

Residents can also pick

up their free cellphone

screen cleaner from

council library and service

centres or from rural

garages.

Little mistakes cost Country under-18s

• By Andrew King

THE DEFENSIVE handbook

was thrown out the window as

Canterbury Country under-18

lost 46-31 to Tasman under-18 in

West Melton on Saturday.

Country coach Glen Dunseath

said little mistakes crept into

their game, which let them down.

“The simple fact was that both

sides didn’t deal with the restart

well in the first half. We would

knock on, then they would score,

then they would knock on and

we would score,” he said.

With 15min to go in the match,

Country were well in the game,

but a couple of tries at the end

blew the score out, Dunseath

said.

“Look, Tasman are a quality

side. They have three really high

performing teams in the UC

Championship and it shows, “

Dunseath said.

Country have a bye in

the South Island under-18

competition this weekend, but

will play the New Zealand Area

Schools team on Saturday.

“(New Zealand Area Schools)

are not to the same level of

competition we have faced in the

past two weeks, but they will be

tough,” Dunseath said.

He said everyone in the

Country team were sore but

came through the weekend free

from major injuries.

ELUSIVE: Country’s Conner

Smith flies through the air.

Grants for rugby club and parenting group

TWO ORGANISATIONS in

Selwyn have received funding

from the Rata Foundation.

The foundation has granted

$10,000 to Southbridge Rugby

Football Club and $15,000 to the

Selwyn Parenting Network Inc.

The funding will go towards

the rugby club’s development

officer salary and the parenting

network’s operating costs.

The club’s president Chris

McMillan said support from

local funders is important to the

club’s success.

Rugby has had its reputation

tarnished recently but the

Southbridge club stands as a

great example of all that is good

about the sport.

It has long been known as a

multicultural club.

Mr McMillan said the

club, which has in the past

been the target of some

nasty and personal attacks

from individuals outside of

Southbridge, has worked hard on

and off the field on how to deal

with racial abuse.

Canterbury Rugby Football

Union investigated Waihora’s

Bronson Munro last year

after he used a racial slur

towards Southbridge’s Peni

Manumanuniliwa in a club

game. It handed down a 46-week

COME TOGETHER: Southbridge Rugby Football Club has

received a grant of $10,000 from the Rata Foundation.

ban for the former South Island

Maori representative.

Mr McMillan said

improvements this season had

been noticeable around the club,

particularly with the support

of the CRFU’s We All Bleed

Red campaign – a positive step

towards stamping out racial

abuse in the game.

“We’re really pleased to see

how seriously this campaign

is being taken and it’s good to

know we are not alone,” he said.

The intention of the club is

to offer and create a better and

improved pathway for country

players, coaches and volunteers.

Mr McMillan said having a

rugby development officer has

made a huge difference and

the club is planning to have an

academy up and running by next

year.

It will see the development of

11 to 18-year-old players in the

Ellesmere area and will run in

the pre-season.

Meanwhile, the Selwyn

Parenting Network is a nonprofit

organisation working

alongside families in the district

to connect them to social and

community networks.

Selwyn is one of the fastest

growing areas in the country,

but it’s a relatively fragmented

community with small

towns situated across a vast

geographical area.

COMMUNITY: The Selwyn Parenting Network was granted

$15,000 to support the organisation’s operating costs.

Selwyn Parenting Network

committee chairwoman

Kerryn Stokes said families

are a vital part of the district’s

communities.

The network aims to

strengthen families by enabling

them to thrive within the area.

“Our aim is provide

opportunities to all families at

low or no cost. To do this, we rely

solely on funding and are very

lucky to have great relationships

with our funders,” she said.

FREE ENTRY

Drive safe, drive phone free

Nearly 75% of Selwyn residents acknowledge the high risk

involved in texting while driving – when drivers focus on their

phone, they’re not focused on the road.

That’s one of the findings of a recent survey carried out by Selwyn

District Council, which is getting on board with the nationwide

Drive Phone Free campaign. The campaign aims to increase driver

awareness that talking on the phone, texting or even checking a

hand held mobile phone while driving puts them and other road

users at risk.

With cellphones now a large part of many people’s lives it can be

difficult to ignore them when driving, however it is important to

remember to put them away.

In November 2009 a law was introduced making it illegal to use

hand-held mobile phones while driving. This includes:

· making receiving or terminating a phone call

· creating, sending or even reading a text or email

· creating, sending or viewing a video message

Hands-free devices are often considered as a solution to minimise

the risk of driver distraction. While they do decrease the visual risk

(taking drivers’ eyes off the road) and manual risk (taking drivers’

hands off the wheel) they don’t minimise cognitive distraction

meaning drivers’ minds are not focused on the road.

Keep an eye on the Council Facebook page over the next month

for weekly posts and prizes to be won to encourage drivers to drive

phone free. Pick up your free cell phone screen cleaner from a

Council Library and Service Centre or from a rural garage.

Karakia and kapa haka could be heard throughout West Melton on Wednesday last week, as the site of

the new Community and Recreation Centre was blessed. Construction of the new $5.8M facility is set

to begin at the end of the month, and is expected to be completed late next year.

West Melton Community and Recreation Centre Committee chair, Bruce Russell, says the blessing

was an opportunity for the community to celebrate the hard work that has gone in to making the new

facility a reality.

“We received a Rata Foundation grant of $250,000 and the community itself raised $120,000 towards

the new facility – I’m really proud of the way West Melton residents got behind this project and helped

this four-year project come to fruition,” Mr Russell says.

Search on for Civil Defence volunteers Celebrating

THE DISTRICT council is

looking for volunteers to join

its new Selwyn Civil Defence

Response Team.

The team will provide the

district council with additional

capability during an emergency.

This includes helping with

evacuations, sandbagging, light

rescue, reconnaissance, cordon

management and community

needs assessment.

A media spokesman said

it is always looking for more

volunteers to help respond to an

emergency.

Selwyn already has about 30

community response teams and

this is to supplement that,” he

said.

District council’s emergency

management team leader

Ryan O’Rourke said it is on

the lookout for people with a

background in rescue, but also

for those who are enthusiastic

about serving their community

and who are willing to commit

to the required training.

“We need people who

can operate in physically

and mentally challenging

environments within a small

team. They must also have

excellent communication

skills and be able to follow

instructions,” he said.

The volunteers will be trained

in emergency management, first

aid, light rescue, operating fourwheel-drive

vehicles, radio communications

and flood response.

Volunteers must have a full

car driver licence and be able

to commit to evening training

weekly, and monthly weekend

training activities.

There are a number of

other response teams already

operating in Canterbury

which have responded to major

civil defence emergencies

including the Christchurch

earthquake, the Kaikoura/

Hurunui earthquake, the Port

Hills fire and numerous flood

events.

Backyard Critters

Destructive aphids

Local

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

Mike Bowie is

an ecologist

who specialises

in entomology

(insects

and other

invertebrates).

Each week he introduces

a new species found in his

backyard at Lincoln. His

column aims to raise public

awareness of biodiversity,

the variety of living things

around us

THE CABBAGE aphid

brevicoryne brassicae is a

greyish-white species that

is a pest of brassica species,

including cabbage, brussels

sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower.

The powdery appearance is a

waxy substance produced by the

aphid which contains a strong

mustard oil chemical to ward off

predators.

The aphid species is 2-2.5mm

long and adults can be winged or

wingless.

They are native to Europe but

are now found around the world.

Cabbage aphids can go

through at least 15 generations

per year and a single aphid

can produce 25 nymphs that

can reach large numbers very

quickly in summer.

DEATHLY: Cabbage aphids suck plant juices which causes

leaves to curl and turn yellow and plants to wilt. (Below) A wasp

can inject an egg into the aphids turning them into brown,

spherical aphid mummies. ​

The aphids suck plant juices,

which causes leaves to curl and

turn yellow and the plant wilts.

Cabbage aphids can be vectors

for viruses, such as turnip mosaic

virus, which can reduce crop

yield and cause plant death.

A significant biological control

agent of this species is a small

(2mm long) parasitoid wasp that

injects an egg into the aphids

where it develops creating brown,

spherical aphid mummies.

HELPING OTHERS: Lincoln resident Paula Morgan with

Matautu Gagaifo Primary School’s year 8 class in Samoa.

Samoan holiday leads to

Lincoln Rotary aiding school

THE ROTARY Club of Lincoln

doesn’t just help the district’s

community.

It is also enthusiastic about

giving a helping hand to other

nations.

Its “backyard” of South Pacific

islands is on the top of the list.

For example, a recent trip to

Samoa by club member Gavin

Morgan and his wife Paula

provided an opportunity to help.

The couple stayed at the

Return to Paradise Resort in the

village of Matautu Lefaga.

During a guided tour of the

village and Matautu Gagaifo

Primary School, Mr Morgan

asked if there was anything the

club could help the school with.

He found out it was in bad

need of teaching material,

specifically computers to provide

visual aids to the children.

On returning to New Zealand,

Mr Morgan approached one of

his friends, Canned Computers

Company owner Ross Burgess.

Mr Burgess donated six

reconditioned laptops to the

cause.

Other members of the club

gave donations of stationery or

helped with the freight cost.

Mr Morgan said about

$1500 in goods was sent over

to the school and the village

community.

PETS & PAWS

Crate training pets

Crate training is an effective way to

house-train puppies, dogs and cats. Just like

an indoor kennel, many vets recommend

crate training where a comfortable happy

place is created for your pet.

Once crate trained, puppies and other

pets often choose to continue using the

crate as a haven throughout their life with

many dogs putting themselves to bed in the

crate even during the day.

A comfortable crate provides your

pet with a secure den-like environment,

Several types of crates are available to

large enough to accommodate your pet

lying down and turning around. There

should also be room for water, food bowls

and a litter tray for a cat, as dogs and cats

prefer not to soil where they sleep. If your

treats, food and toys inside, feeding your

pet there and enticing it to explore its new

environment with lots of praise whenever

he or she enters the crate.

Using the crate to house-train a puppy is

easy. Feed your puppy in the crate and when

they have finished their meal, immediately

take your puppy outside to urinate and

defaecate. Your puppy will quickly learn

their routine so gradually extend the time

between bathroom breaks so your puppy

eventually sleeps through the night and

waits until early morning to go outside to

toilet.

Like all training, start with short periods

of time in the crate say 30 minutes to one

hour. Over the course of a few weeks, slowly

increase the amount of time your puppy

spends in the crate, endeavouring to ignore

any protests. They will slowly settle down.

Puppies younger than four months of age,

should not spend more than four hours at a

time in a crate unless at night for sleeping.

If you work full-time, try to arrange to

have someone let your puppy out to the

toilet during the day as each time a puppy

has an accident in the crate it will take longer

to be toilet trained. Of course, accidents

will happen so remove the soiled bedding

and remember that over time, you will be

doing this less frequently. Once your puppy

is doing really well with toilet training,

gradually increase the time your puppy is

running free in your home. Consult your

veterinary practice staff for advice if soiling

continues for too long.

Lastly, always ensure there is clean water

in the crate.

they sleep.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

Agricultural machinery of the past

Selwyn Motor Fest

Sunday 26 November: 10am - 3pm

Bringing power to the farm

In the 1900s, the International Harvester

Company was a household name in farming,

manufacturing amongst other things, trucks

and agricultural machinery including a

stationary motor.

Michael who enjoys preserving old

technology and introducing his children to

the way things were once done, purchased

his 1926 Model M 3 horse-power stationary

motor a year ago. He says his children find

the simplicity of early 1900s machinery

intriguing.

Stationary motors were used for tasks

such as pumping water and powering

milking machines on dairy farms. It was a

time before people had electricity.

The motor has a two pot chamber at the

top. The first is filled with petrol to start

the machine then kerosene flows over from

the second chamber and pumps through to

keep the motor running. Using kerosene

was more economical than petrol, which

was expensive at the time.

Michael says the motor has been restored

in the past so is quite presentable albeit

minus a few parts. He purchased it to

accompany a vacuum pump produced by

Mason and Porter Company (now known as

Masport), which would have been used for

running a dairy milking machine.

1948 International KB3 truck. The truck’s wooden flat deck was retrofitted for farm work.

Decommissioned to the farm

After years of service as a Cadbury’s chocolate

delivery vehicle, Michael’s 1948 International

KB3 red truck is still providing good service.

These trucks were first sold as a cab and

chassis so before being put to work on the

chocolate run, a van body was fitted on the

back. When decommissioned from Cadbury’s

in the 1980s, a wooden flat deck was fitted for

service on a farm with the truck spending 10

years in Ashburton before Michael purchased

it and brought it to Selwyn.

The truck has a flathead straight 6 motor and

green diamond engine. Different colours were

given to the various engines depending on

their cc rating and this one is a 214 cubic inch,

GD 214 and 3,495 cc.

The truck, which is in its original condition,

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

An enthusiasm

for panelbeating

Pop in and see us today!

R O Jones Panelbeaters: 107 St Asaph Street in the city centre

Laycock’s Collision Centre: 17 Epsom Road, Sockburn

Scott Jefcoate has a passion for panel

beating and doing the job properly,

something he fosters in his staff at

Laycock’s Collision Repairs and R O Jones

Panelbeaters.

“The team’s exceptional. They’re

enthusiastic about their vocation, working

hard and always wanting to send vehicles

out looking like new,” says Scott who owns

and operates both panel beating businesses.

Scott’s team are all I-CAR trained,

participating in off-site industry standard

job training. Within the business, there

is a culture of passing on knowledge

with the older panel beaters fostering the

development of the younger recruits, while

jobs are allocated according to a person’s

skills.

Scott is young, enthusiastic and loves the

challenges of running two very successful,

well-established and recognised panel

beating firms. His friendly approach coupled

with a keen and supportive team across the

two branches, are just two reasons for the

success of his operation.

The two panel beating outlets are well

placed to serve the

people of Christchurch

as well as surrounding

areas with R O Jones

Panelbeaters right in

the centre of the city

and Laycock’s Collision

Repairs conveniently

located in Sockburn, just

a stone’s throw away for

Selwyn residents. Both

offer a full service of

collision repairs, general

panel beating and spray

painting for all motor

vehicles, including

commercial fleets.

Whether you need a

few scratches touched

up, a dent knocked back

into shape or a fuller

panel work, they have

the skill and equipment

to complete the task,

with spray bake ovens

at both outlets and fully

qualified staff who can

tackle any job from small

to large, getting your

wheels back on the road

as quickly as within a

week.

If you are

unlucky enough

to get a ding

to your vehicle

or be in an

accident leaving

you without

a car, take it

straight to R O Jones Panelbeaters or

Laycock’s Collision Repairs where they will

assist you in arranging a claim with your

insurance company, then sorting out the

damage assessment and paperwork before

undertaking a speedy repair.

Just drop your vehicle off at either Laycock’s

Collision Repairs or R O Jones Panelbeaters,

or organise to have it towed there. They

work with all insurance companies.

If needing wheels while the work is being

carried out, they can help with this too. They

have a large fleet of loan vehicles available

for use.

• Two great locations

• Collision repair specialists

• Free loan cars and vans

• Insurance repairs, smash repairs, rust

repairs, fibreglassing

• From motorbikes to horse floats

• No job is too big or small

• Open most Saturday mornings for

Bee on guard

Rebecca Lees says you don’t have to be a beekeeper to witness the

wonders of guard bees.

SIT AND watch a hive from close

by, and you’ll witness behaviours

you may have never seen.

The entrance to a bee colony

is a hive of activity. There’s a lot

going on, but you have to be quick

to see it. Bees work at a rapid

pace. The more you watch, the

more fascinating their behaviour

becomes.

In very cold weather you may

only glimpse a few heads poking

out. Make a little noise, and more

will appear. The curious little bees

we see at the entrance are doing an

important job. They’re guarding

the hive. Watching the ins and

outs of the place, and it’s up to

them who’s granted access.

Usually around two to three

weeks old, these young worker

bees take turns on patrol. At times

when nectar flow is high and

plenty of bees take to their air –

guarding decreases. During cooler

weather, when their population is

low and nectar not flowing freely,

the guards are out in force. They

have to be, their hive is at risk.

Any creature can enter a hive, as

long as it fits through the entrance.

Mice squeeze through with ease.

Wasps have no problem. Even

bumblebees, larger than life, will

fit. It’s the guard’s job to make sure

this doesn’t happen. But when it

does – and it will – they’ll defend

their family and, if need be, fight

to the death.

Guards will often stand with

their forelegs raised and antennae

forward. The bigger the entrance to

the hive, the more bees on guard.

They’re on high alert to carry out

regular inspections of incoming

bees. As a bee approaches a hive

it flies in a particular way. Bees

which belong to the hive they’re

visiting have a more direct and

consistent flying pattern. Foreign

bees approach the hive differently.

They’re checking things out.

Searching for the entrance.

Depending on the species,

they’ll hover more or dart this

way and that trying to find a way

in. This flying pattern alerts the

guards to take a closer look, and

inspect the intruder.

Each colony of bees has a

unique odour, made of a mix of

chemicals. Guards use this odour

as a recognition mechanism. If the

odour is foreign, as detected by the

guard bee’s antennae, the intruder

is chased away from the hive.

The intruder may make a quick

getaway and get off scot-free, but

there are those who are really

desperate to get in, and they’ll

keep trying. This is when a battle

takes place.

A guard will fight with the

intruder. If need be (and if the

fight works in the bee’s favour),

the intruder will be stung. That’s

when the real alarm bells ring. On

stinging the intruder the guard

bee releases alarm pheromones.

These pheromones are

another concoction of chemical

substances. They’re an important

communication mechanism on

which the colony depends for its

survival. As the pheromone is

released other worker bees pick

up on the alarm signal. It gets

their attention and changes their

behaviour. They come out of the

hive and join the battle.

This form of SOS often works

well. The more intruders stung,

the more alarm pheromones

released. And the bigger the army

of bees Urban who fight. Section

Take care of your blueberries and they will thrive

Rachel Vogan unearths the tips and tricks of

growing blueberries

AS A child, I always thought

blueberries were some sort

of exotic fruit, as I only ever

saw references to them on TV

programmes such as The Waltons

or Little House on the Prairie.

Little did I know that they were

already being cultivated in New

Zealand.

It was during my first

horticultural apprenticeship that

I first learnt about propagating

and growing blueberries on a

commercial scale. By taking

cuttings in late summer, which

often coincided with the plants

fruiting, meant it was no hardship

to collect the cutting material,

and I could have a sneaky feed at

the same time.

As snacks go, blueberries are

one of the healthiest and tastiest

you can grow yourself, and they

thrive throughout the country.

Which to grow

While most varieties have

some level of self-fertility, it is

always wise to get into the habit

of planting at least two plants.

Choose another variety which

flowers at the same time to ensure

good pollination results, as this

will lead to a higher fruit set and

therefore a larger total harvest.

Blueberries can be classified

into three types, which indicate

their flowering habits, growth

characteristics and which regions

they are best suited to, along with

fruiting times.

Northern highbush – these

flower in mid-spring, fruit in

December and January, and

are suitable for all regions that

have cold winters. Look for

the varieties Blueberry Muffin,

Bluecrop, Dixi, Duke, Elliot,

Jersey, Nui, Puru and Reka.

Southern highbush – these

flower in late winter, then fruit

anytime between October and

February, and are suited to all

areas north of Canterbury. They

are ideal for the northern regions

where the winters are not so cold,

as they do not require as much

cold weather to stimulate flower

buds. Varieties include Island

Blue, Marimba, Misty, O’Neal and

Summer Blue.

Rabbiteye – these flower in

early spring, with fruit appearing

from January through until

April. These are suitable for

most regions that have warm

temperatures well into the

autumn. In some cold areas where

winter arrives early, the fruit may

not fully ripen if temperatures

cool off early. Varieties include

Centurion, Climax, Delite,

Powder Blue, Southland, Tiff

Blue, Blue Dawn, Blue Magic and

Blueberry Burst.

Underground – the root

department

Blueberries have a very shallow

root system, and don’t like having

their root zone tampered with.

This means that mulching is

vital to avoid the soil heating

up and drying out, especially

during the warmer months

while the fruit is developing and

maturing. It is also worth noting

that inconsistent watering leads

to dry, sour fruit. The soil needs

to be able to hold onto moisture,

which is especially important if

you want to grow them in pots.

Because of this, avoid terracotta

pots as the clay is too porous and

the sun soaks moisture out of

it quicker than with ceramic or

plastic alternative.

Blueberry Food

When it comes to soil,

blueberries prefer ground

that is sour, rather than sweet.

Blueberries are in the same family

as rhododendrons, azaleas, pieris

and ericas, all of which prefer

acidic fertilisers as opposed to

sweet ones. So, avoid lime, blood

and bone, and nitrogen-based

fertilisers, and instead look for

acid plant food.

Pruning

Blueberries have a steady growth

rate; you can expect your plant to

roughly double in size each season

with the right watering, mulching

and feeding regime. They are not

fussy about pruning either, so do

it either before the leaves appear

in late winter or spring, or wait

until after the fruiting season has

finished. In spring, the pretty

creamy pink, bell-shaped flowers

appear on older season’s wood,

often on short, stumpy spurs. Be

careful not to prune these off, as it

will take another full year’s growth

to develop that wood again.

Harvesting tips

Allow berries to fully ripen on

the plants. It can be tempting to

pick them as soon as the colour

begins to darken, but patience

will reward you with more

flavoursome berries if you wait.

Berries form in clusters (small

groups), and ripen at different

stages on the cluster, so be careful

when picking them, as you don’t

want to knock off unripe berries.

Stay ahead of what needs to be done

With spring upon

us, Rachel Vogan

says here’s what

you need to know

to stay ahead this

month

GARDENING IS therapy,

and now is the time to get

your green prescription

locked and loaded for the

growing season ahead.

The joys, rewards and

sense of self-satisfaction

provided by a dirty weekend

in the garden are numerous

– the wait is over, spring is

here.

Stretch your arms above

your head and get ready to

launch into action outdoors.

In the warmer regions,

where the soil is dry enough,

start planting out your

vegetable patches now, but if

you are in a cooler area and

the soil still squelches under

your boots, give it a few

more weeks.

Working and planting in

the soil when it is wet does

more harm that good, so

hold off.

Roses, roses and more roses

As soon as the new growth starts to

appear, keep a close eye out for aphids and

greenfly, as these little sap-suckers will

spoil your blooms overnight by chewing

out the petals of the developing buds.

A rose spray programme helps prevent

DELICATE: Cover up young seedlings during cold

snaps.

Cold snaps

Just because it is spring, it doesn’t mean that Jack Frost

has moved on – in the wake of cold, wet periods, frosts

can lurk until November in some parts of the country.

Young seedlings can be protected from frost with small

cloches, plastic covers or by using frost cloth. If it feels

like a cold one, tuck your plants up for the night.

major issues. New roses are aplenty

now in the shops. Fertilise existing

roses with rose fertiliser, which is

available everywhere from hardware

stores and supermarkets to garden

centres.

Vegetables

This month is all about preparation and

planting, so if your patch is still too wet,

get busy sowing the seeds of all your

tender crops like tomatoes, chillies,

eggplants, and cucumbers indoors. If

soil conditions are right, sow the first

rows of carrots, beetroot and radishes.

Hardy crops such as spring onions, celery,

broccoli, cabbage, bok choy, lettuce,

Fruit trees

Have your planted out your new-season fruit

trees yet? The shops are still brimming with an

excellent selection of deciduous trees, berries

and currants, and many apples, peaches,

nectarines and apricots are now available on

dwarf rootstocks. This means the trees do not

grow as big as usual, but while the plant may

be petite, the fruit remains the same size. If

space is at a premium, grow your fruit trees in

larger grow bags or wine barrels, the portability

making them extra convenient should you need

to move them. If you don’t have any room, why

not offer to donate one to your local community

garden, where you can share the fruits of your

crops with other like-minded people.

Lawns

You will start to see a real flush of growth

this month, and as soon as this appears

you know it is time to weed and feed

your lawn. These combination sprays are

available everywhere, and the beauty of

them is that they kill the weeds whilst

fertilising the lawn. Don’t go overboard –

make sure to apply at the recommended

spinach and silver beet can all go in by the

punnet load. For potatoes, make sure you

get them sprouting as soon as possible

to ensure you have some to enjoy for the

Christmas holidays, and most of all, don’t

forget to feed your soil before you plant,

your crops will thank you for it. Slugs

and snails will be out in force, too, so arm

yourself with plenty of bait.

TASTY: Add a nectarine tree to

your garden.

date, and be mindful of the fact that

overuse can cause burn-off.

Prepare new lawn areas for sowing now

by spraying off the area and raking it level,

apply lawn fertiliser before sowing and

protecting the area afterwards so pets,

kids and cars do not accidentally park and

mark your new turf.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

Do I need to put weedmat down before I apply my bark?

Weedmat will definitely help to reduce

Answer: weeding time in the garden, especially

if you are only putting a thinner layer

of bark on. If you apply a 10cm layer of bark, you don’t really

need weedmat, as long as you continue to top it up as it breaks

down. If you want the extra security of it, adding weedmat before

your 10cm layer of bark will definitely not do any harm. There are

a few key things to make sure you do once you have decided to

use weedmat.

Choose a good quality one. The water still needs to get through,

and the soil still needs airflow, and it needs to stop the weeds.

When you apply it, make sure that you use pins to secure it. If

the weed mat moves, the weeds will come through and make

the whole exercise fairly pointless (see bottom right image).

Apply the bark straight after you have applied it. Don’t give the

weed seeds time to land on top of the weedmat.

The more time you spend getting it right from the start, the less time

you will spend pulling weeds out and fixing loose weedmat.

Join us at one of Christchurch’s largest events

If you’ve been searching for the perfect occasion for you

and your friends to get together, then here it is. The annual

Women’s Lifestyle Expo is back in Christchurch once more

with their biggest Expo yet.

Variety of companies involved –

something for everybody

With over 200 sites to browse,

unique businesses to discover,

shopping, bargains and laughter,

the Expo is the ultimate day out

for every woman and all ages.

One of the appeals the Expo

has to visitors is the variety

of companies involved with

everything from bamboo tooth

brushes to gourmet vodka.

Renee Murray from NZME

Events, organiser of the Expo

says “Our aim is to have as wide

of a range of companies involved

with the Expo as possible.

Women are all different and their

individual interests are so diverse.

One woman may love the latest in

makeup or is looking for childcare

options but the woman beside her

may be more interested in sampling

handmade cheese or discovering

travel and cultural experiences.

It’s great on the weekend to see

all the various women visit the

show, from teenagers to business

women, mothers to grandmothers

and friends simply enjoying each

other’s company. It’s becoming

more common for us to see three

generations visit the Expo together as

well, with the daughter, mother and

grandmother all enjoying the show and

spending the day with each other.”

Featuring lots of new companies and

everything from fashion and accessories

to travel, giftware, fantastic food and

wine, crafts, unique businesses,

beauty, eco-friendly products,

education, community groups and

so much more – what interests the

modern woman will be at the Expo.

Take time for yourself; Have a Mother–Daughter day out or grab

the girlfriends and head to the Women’s Lifestyle Expo on this 30th

September & 1st October at Horncastle Arena. Door Sales only $10.


Be Pampered at the Expo

This year the Expo will feature several

pamper lounges where visitors can stop

and spoil themselves with everything

from eyelash extensions to a relaxing

foot massage. The Style Mystic Hair

Lounge will be a popular destination for

Expo visitors – take a seat and let the

team spoil you with a new style, haircare

advice or an eyelash treatment. The

Southern Reflexology Group will have a

large Reflexology & Relaxation Lounge

for visitors to put their feet up, have a

mini treatment on site and experience the

healing properties of reflexology.

Sparklewhite Teeth will be offering teeth

whitening treatments and beauty therapy

sessions onsite. Your Expo experience

won’t be complete until you visit the

Moisture Mist Makeup Lounge where not

only will you find these Shiseido brands

at great prices, but the team onsite will

be offering makeovers to Expo visitors.

Find out the best colours and products

to suit your own individual needs and

leave the Expo feeling like a new woman!

Grab a Goodie Bag Bargain

Only available for purchase at the Women’s Lifestyle Expo, these goodie

Bags are perfect for expo visitors who love a bargain. They are a mystery

bag including a scarf, mascara and variety of skincare and cosmetic

products and more. Priced at only $20, these bags are sure to be a hit

With over 200 companies involved, it will be one of the

thousand women to visit the Expo over the two days.

Renee Murray from Expo

Organisers, NZME Events says

“We will be bringing a fabulous

experience to the women of

Canterbury for one weekend.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see

so many wonderful companies and

do lots of shopping under the one

roof. Aside from having the best of

local companies exhibiting at the

Expo we have a large number of

national companies who will travel

to Christchurch from all around

New Zealand especially to show

local women their products. This

is a great chance for women to

stop, relax and spoil themselves

for one weekend”.

Brandhouse will return to the

Expo again with their range of

[Edition datE]

What do you have to tell potential

buyers when selling your house?

When you’ve lived in a property for a

while it’s easy to forget some of its quirks.

You might be used to the fact that the

front gate doesn’t shut properly, or that

the bathroom windows need fixing.

Any potential buyers will be able to spot

issues like this when they inspect the

property – and can choose to fix them if

they purchase it. But it’s a lot harder for

them to identify other things you might

have forgotten about, like the fact that

you didn’t bother getting the appropriate

consents from the council when you built

the deck 25 years ago.

You might think the deck is fine, but

you need to front up about the consent

issue, not least because it’s the decent

thing to do.

“When you’re selling a property you are

legally obliged to share all the relevant

information about it,” says Kevin Lampen-

Smith, chief executive of the Real Estate

Agents Authority (REAA).

“If work has been done on the property

during your ownership, either by you or

someone else, the standard terms of the

sale and purchase agreement require the

seller to warrant that any legally required

permits or consents were obtained. If you

knowingly fail to disclose unconsented

works, you are in breach of contract.

This means there is a risk that the sale

could fall over or that you could run into

problems prior to settlement. Even worse,

the buyer could take you to court for

breach of warranty.”

Your first step should be to discuss the

issue with your licensed real estate agent

and your lawyer, Lampen-Smith says.

They are likely to advise that you are better

off to disclose anything unconsented,

or to strike out the applicable vendor

warranties clause in the sale and purchase

agreement.

“Once the real estate agent is aware of

the situation, they are bound by their

Code of Conduct to disclose it to any

prospective buyers. If you tell them about

the deck or any other issues to do with the

property, but ask them not to tell anyone,

they are required to stop working for you.”

Similar disclosure issues can arise over

Retail Investment

more sensitive matters. Some sellers

worry about whether or not to tell an

agent or prospective buyers about an issue

that doesn’t relate to the physical state of

the property – such as it being the scene

of a murder, suicide or violent crime.

Here, deciding what to disclose is less

straightforward, Lampen-Smith says.

“The REAA advises agents to take a

cautious approach and to consider each

situation on its facts, while recognising

the individual circumstances.”

The High Court has said that a more

recent event, especially one that might

have gained some notoriety in the local

neighbourhood, may have more bearing

on a prospective buyer’s view of the

property than a historic one. The location

of the event (whether it took place in the

grounds of the property or inside the

house) and whether the property has been

lived in since it happened, as well as the

likely reaction of potential buyers, should

also be taken into account. The death

of someone from natural causes at the

property does not need to be disclosed, as

this is considered an everyday occurrence.

“If you are in this situation as a seller, it’s

best to discuss what to do with your real

estate agent,” Lampen-Smith says.

“They cannot tell prospective buyers

without your consent – and if they decide

that a sensitive issue should be disclosed

but you don’t agree, then they must cease

Rolleston

to act for you.”

Whatever the situation, whether it’s

unconsented work or a tragic event,

honesty is the best policy. Talk to your

agent about how the disclosure will be

handled. There is no need to advertise the

information or tell everyone who wanders

along to an open home, but potential

buyers who have indicated an interest in

making an offer must be told.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

New retirement village in

Rolleston proving popular

Considerable interest has been

received by the developers of Rolleston’s

first retirement village to offer the full

continuum of care.

“I’m thrilled by the response we’ve

had to our recent promotions of The

Boulevard,” says Karen Harris, who along

with her husband Dean will own and

operate the village.

They have over thirty years’ experience

in the industry and are known for

providing exceptional care and service to

all their clients.

Enquiries have been received from

people living in Selwyn and others further

away. Many want to be near family who

live in Rolleston while others are attracted

by the safe, secure, relaxed and worry-free

environment the village will offer. The high

level of interest also shows that Rolleston

is coming of age and ready for a facility of

this kind.

The Boulevard will be constructed in

stages and ultimately comprise: 59 two

and three bedroom villas; 40 one and two

bedroom apartments; 20 care suites; and

58 hospital rest home and dementia beds.

Plans are now with the Selwyn District

Council and once consented, construction

will be underway.

A number of villas in the first and

second stage are already under contract

and many more enquiries have been

received.

“People have been very impressed with

the different villa styles and overall design

of The Boulevard,” says Karen.

The architectural flair and diversity,

choice of villa design and open

spaciousness in a garden setting with wide

streets, sets it apart from many retirement

villages.

“We wanted The Boulevard to look like a

normal sub-division while having a sense

of community,” she says.

The Boulevard will be located at 200 Dunns Crossing Road in Rolleston.

Residents will be in a place where

they can make friends, share a meal,

drink, watch movies, and take part in

sports night or outings, all while living

independently or benefitting from fuller

rest home and hospital facilities.

An impressive large community lodge

will be the hub for social activity. This

will have a dining area, lounge with large

screen for movie and sports viewing, a

meeting/small function room, bar and

café, beautician/therapy clinic, gym,

library, computer nook and outdoor

sheltered courtyard.

Karen says that a big influencer for

future residents has been, not having to

maintain their own garden or external

maintenance as window cleaning,

lawn mowing, gardening, the rates and

insurance are all taken care of. This

will give residents the freedom to enjoy

life in a holiday setting while having

the knowledge they have access to the

full continuum of care down the track,

a determining factor in choosing a

retirement village.

The Boulevard will be located at 200

Dunns Crossing Road, just five minutes

from Rolleston’s shopping centre.

To learn more about The Boulevard

Affordable First Home Ownership

Opportunities in Faringdon

Renting with an ownership outcome

The New Zealand Housing Foundation is a charitable entity

that has been providing real and innovative housing solutions

for low and moderate income working households for over

14 years.

Its affordable housing ‘pathway’ programmes allow qualifying

households to move into a new home and as their financial

circumstances permit transition from renting to outright

home ownership.

Housing Foundation is now accepting registrations of Interest

for three bedroom standalone houses it currently has under

construction in Faringdon that will be available before

Christmas 2017.

Qualifying households will initially be able to rent a new

home in Faringdon for up to five years. They will have first

right to purchase an interest in the property within the 5 year

rental period, once they can meet the Shared Ownership

programme financial requirements.

Applicants must not have had a previous interest in a house

and be unable to purchase in the open market. An annual

gross household income of between $55,000 and $95,000,

depending on individual households’ circumstances, is

required. The deposit requirement to transition to shared

home ownership is a minimum of $10,000 which can include

KiwiSaver first home deposit withdrawals and HomeStart

grants where eligible. Households including children will

have priority.

The full eligibility criteria for the Faringdon houses

can be found on Housing Foundation’s website, www.

housingfoundation.co.nz , under the Greater Christchurch

housing project section.

Housing Foundation has built almost 700 new houses for

use in its assisted ownership programmes and for partner

organisations. It also provides community building and

advisory services to other housing providers.

In the last year 84 new homes have been completed,

including 16 in the Greater Christchurch locations of Hornby,

Awatea and Kaiapoi.

Currently Housing Foundation has 210 households in Assisted

Ownership Housing who are working towards outright home

ownership.

As a first step to moving into ‘a home to call your own’ an

initial Registration of Interest form can be completed on the

Housing Foundation website, www.housingfoundation.co.nz.

Casey, Brad and Jackson moved

into their Kaiapoi home in March

under Housing Foundation’s

affordable ownership programme.

For more information on the Faringdon houses please contact Bill King at the New Zealand Housing Foundation

Telephone 021 203 4196 or email at bill.k@housingfoundation.co.nz.
