Lincoln’s golden girl in the pool

• By Gordon Findlater

LINCOLN’S HANNAH Bates

is a national champion after

winning her first open swimming

title at the NZ Short Course

Championships in Auckland.

Bates, 17, finished the five-day

event with a gold medal in the

open 400m individual medley

and a bronze medal in the open

100m individual medley.

“I didn’t think I was going

to come up here and win an

open title, so to do it was pretty

amazing,” said Hannah.

She went into Friday’s 400m

individual medley final with

confidence after setting the fastest

qualifying time. She showed

no signs of cracking under pressure

of the big stage, shaving

two and a half seconds off her

previous best time in the event

to win in 4min 48.92sec, more

than two seconds ahead of her

nearest rival.

It was a busy week for Bates,

who competed in 17 individual

races and three team relays. She

also won a gold, four silver and

two bronze medals in the 17-18

year age category.

Bates’ preparation for the

championships was not ideal.

Six weeks ago she came down

with a stomach bug which

forced her to miss a week of

training.

Another

twist in

Lincoln’s

parking

issues

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LINCOLN’S CAR parking issues

have taken another twist with

painted reserved signs outside a

line of shops now having to be

removed.

The signs on car parks outside

an Indian restaurant, Subway,

hairdresser, dairy and coffee shop

read ‘Reserved shops 5 Robert St’

were put in 12 days ago.

But the district council says

the signs cannot stay as the shops

do not have exclusive use of the

car parks, which have 120min

restricted parking signs on them.

Building owner Shaun Stockman

told the Selwyn Times he

had put in the signs as a response

to clamping and tow away signs

put up by the Black Door Bar and

Eatery on the other side of Robert

St in June.

He said the Black Door’s patrons

were taking up the car parks

outside the shops.

Those signs were removed

several weeks ago. The district

council ruled the Black Door did

not have exclusive rights on the

parks outside its premises.

Hard-up Lincoln Uni

paid out $72,000 to recruit boss

• By Bridget Rutherford

A CASH-STRAPPED Lincoln

University spent more than

$70,000 recruiting its new vicechancellor,

it can be revealed.

The university paid out

$72,431 to find and hire vicechancellor

Robin Pollard from

in January last year while the

institution was facing a $5 million

deficit. Lincoln University

refused

to release the

cost when

asked in

year, citing

commercial

That ruling

was appealed

yesterday Lincoln was not hiding

Prof Pollard’s recruitment

figure last year.

However, the university

did release the $86,540 cost

of recruiting previous vicechancellor

Freedom campers have negative

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LITTER, DEFECATING, overcrowding,

fire lighting and antisocial

behaviour are key issues

identified as negative impacts

freedom camping are having on

the district.

The issues have been identified

as part of a report exposing the

impacts freedom camping has on

the district.

Observations into the environmental

impacts of freedom

camping were carried out at

Chamberlains Ford and Whitecliffs

Domain.

It found high amounts of litter,

especially at Chamberlains Ford

with rubbish varying from supermarket

bags to toilet paper with

plastic being the most common

type of litter.

Large amounts were found

behind the Chamberlains Ford’s

toilet block.

But research findings suggested

freedom campers were either

not aware of the litter issues and

it was identified it needed to be

addressed.

High volumes of freedom

camping can be attributed to the

excessive amounts of litter.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the issues identified in the

report were the reason freedom

camping was getting a bad

name.

But he said these problems

were generally caused by a minority

of campers.

Mr Broughton said the district

council had done a lot to support

freedom camping and there are

signs and infrastructure in place

so people can dispose responsibly.

He said the district council

recently asked for further funding

to improve toilet facilities in

Selwyn.

The report showed high

numbers with records of visitor

numbers between November and

March showing 4504 vehicles

parked at Chamberlains Ford

equating to about 125 vehicles a

night.

At Coes Ford 2327 were recorded

over the same period.

PROBLEMS:

Large amounts

of litter were

found at

Chamberlains

Ford,

particularly

behind the

toilet facilities. ​

The report stated freedom

camping is no longer a seasonal

activity but occurs throughout

the year.

Other findings were incidents

of fires lit at Lakeside Domain

and Coes Ford, freedom campers

defecating in grass reserves and

campsites and reports of antisocial

behaviour from police and

residents.

Noticeable amounts of tissue

and toilet paper were found at

Chamberlains Ford and Whitecliffs

Domain, particularly in

areas furthest away from toilet

facilities.

The report said visitors said

there are frequent quests to the

toilets.

Anti-social behaviour is most

common at Chamberlains Ford

and Coes Ford.

Examples include assaults, dogs

not on leads, drunken behaviour,

excessive noise and inappropriate

use of motor-cycles, four-wheeldrive

vehicles and quad-bikes.

Concern was also raised in the

report from visitors interviewed

about the state of the Selwyn’s

rivers.

About 15 per cent of visitors at

Chamberlains Ford, Coes Ford

and Whitecliffs commented on

the state of the rivers without

being asked.

The report was compiled over

last year’s Christmas holiday

period and released to the public

by the district council last week.

It was first presented to the district

council as part of an internal

briefing to its councillors.

Selwyn Times reported it would

not be released because district

council staff were discussing

the results with neighbouring

councils.

Key findings from the

report:

•84 per cent of sample were

international visitors from 26 different

counties.

•Most were German (47 per

cent) and French (14 per cent).

•Most under 30. Majority of

age was 18-21 years.

•Chamberlains Ford and Coes

Ford were the most popular

destinations.

Freedom campers were

attracted to Selwyn by:

•The proximity to Christchurch

(Selwyn closest alternative).

•Excellent reviews of facilities.

•Influenced by apps, for example

CamperMate (71 per cent).

Other reasons for staying

in the district:

•Trying to avoid ‘hassle’ of

booking accommodation.

•Dislike rules associated with

hostels and paid campgrounds.

•Enjoy spending time in nature/rural

environments.

•Highly cost conscious.

•Conserve money for attractions.

Other insights:

•Many knew little about

Selwyn and the tourist experiences

on offer.

•Christchurch and Banks Peninsula

are more popular tourist

destinations.

Main interests are:

•Natural attractions, independent

tramps and wildlife

encounters.

Freedom camper selfperceptions:

•They were familiar with the

term ‘freedom camper’.

•They knew the term had negative

connotations.

•They mainly associated with

other international visitors, and

‘grey nomads’ (older independent

campers).

•Grey nomads are unhappy

about negative association/connotations.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What

do you think of freedom

camping in Selwyn? Email

your views to georgia.

oconnor@starmedia.kiwi

Other findings:

•Observations at Chamberlains Ford and Whitecliffs

yielded a high incidence of litter, especially plastics, and

especially at Chamberlains Ford; the campsite with the

heaviest concentration of visitors and the highest proportion

of international visitors.

•Chamberlains Ford was also rated highly by visitors for

cleanliness/tidiness. These insights either suggest that

visitors are not noticing the amount of litter or feel ambivalent

towards it.

•Two per cent of respondents who completed the visitor

survey said they used nature/waterways as a toilet – this

figure might have been under reported by the respondents;

•The term ‘freedom camper’ has been hijacked, and is

synonymous with young international (not domestic) visitors

who typically tour the country in a non-self-contained

van that they use to sleep in.

•Ratepayers have a tendency to negatively stereotype

the young international tourists who travel the country in

non-self-contained vehicles, and view them as bludgers.

•Ratepayers view the district council as proactively

managing the situation locally by largely keeping freedom

campers contained to the designated areas. Interestingly,

ratepayers were largely unaware of the large amounts of

litter currently at Chamberlains Ford.

•Strong concerns were raised about the Te Araroa walkers

defecating in the wild due to a lack of toilet facilities,

the loss of traditional rights for fishermen to freedom

camp at Lake Coleridge, Lake Selfe and Ryton Bay, and

road safety issues at Chamberlains Ford.

Mr Stockman said he

had permission to put the

phone conversation he had

with a duty planner.

However, the district

council’s environmental

services manager Tim Harris

said the district council

never gave permission for

the signage.

The district council’s position

is that no public car

park can be reserved for

private or individual retail

outlets use without prior

agreement with it, he said.

Said Mr Stockman: “I

have since had a discussion

and have agreed in the

interest of everybody to

remove them,” he said.

In the interim Mr

Stockman was unaware the

signs.

The painter contracted

had been waiting for a

break in the wet weather

and when that arrived he

went ahead with the job.

The signs were to have

been removed on Sunday

but wet weather stopped it.

Mr Stockman said he

reserved the right to put

any other business in the

area decide to in the

future.

Twist in Lincoln car parking issues

as part of construction of a

cycleway for the approved

town centre plan.

In a bid to address car

parking issues in the

area, the district council

purchased a property in 16

William St in July for offstreet

parking.

Mr Stockman said it is

“absolutely crazy” to remove

car parks on Gerald

St for a cycleway.

“You will kill jobs, kill

livelihoods, take the lifeblood

out of the place and

you will ruin it, absolutely

ruin it,” he said.

A cyclist himself, Mr

Stockman said he would

rather cycle an alternative

route such as North Belt

than through the town

centre.

four is now open for bookings

at the Leeston and Rolleston

libraries.

The programme encourages

children to read to a friendly

dog, helping them gain greater

confidence reading aloud, as well

as developing literacy.

Libraries manager Vicki

Carlyon said feedback on the

programme has been positive.

“The volunteer dog owners

selected by the Selwyn Dog

Training Club have also enjoyed

contributing to children’s reading

progress and seeing the enjoyment

both dogs and children

take from their interactions.”

Parent Catherine Nicol says

the programme has encouraged

her son Toby to read. “He won’t

read at home, but says it’s fun

patting the dogs”.

The dogs have been carefully

selected and are monitored by

their handler.

The free 15min sessions will

continue to be available at Leeston

and Rolleston on a fortnightly

basis, with most taking place

on the mobile library bus.

Win a trip to the Melbourne Cup

FLEMINGTON subdivision

at Lincoln is named after

one of the most famous

racecourses in the world.

So, to cap a good year,

Lincoln’s version has decided

to offer two lucky people

the opportunity to visit

Melbourne’s equivalent on

November 7 to watch the

famous race.

Flemington developer

Shane Kennedy, as well as a

successful horse trainer, said

the subdivision at Lincoln

had strong demand this year,

so as a way of thanks had decided

to run a competition for

two people to see this year’s

Melbourne Cup.

“We have organised flights

from Christchurch leaving on

the Monday and returning on

the Wednesday, two nights’

accommodation and access to

a marquee located at the heart

of Flemington Racecourse

on the big day. There’s also a

buffet lunch and refreshments

included.

“Entries are from our show

home village and we intend

to draw the lucky name out

later in October to give them

plenty of time to prepare,” he

said.

OPPORTUNITY: Developer Shane

Kennedy points out two of the

many road signs at Flemington

named after famous names in the

horse racing industry. He is offering

a trip for two to the Melbourne

Cup. ​

Bid to overcome sporting

facility zoning snag

• By Emily O’Connell

A ROAD block, which is in the

way of a Russian businessman’s

plan to expand his Yaldhurst

sporting facility, might be

cleared today.

Canterbury Sports Ltd director

Slava Meyn, who moved to

Christchurch in 2009, built the

Yaldhurst Football Academy two

years ago.

He is now in the process of

planning a bigger complex on

the 20ha block of land, which

would include a gymnastics

indoor stadium, swimming pool,

sport courts, and weights area.

But the land he wants to develop

is zoned Open Space Community

Park under the district

plan, which does not allow for

buildings larger than 1000 sq m.

Mr Meyn wants the zoning

to be changed to Open Space

Metropolitan Facilities Zone, so

he can progress the development

as planned.

Because Mr Meyn’s plans do

not comply, the project could be

delayed by up to five years with

resource and building consent

processes.

City council staff have been

looking into how it could change

PROPOSED: A swimming

complex like this is planned

for the Yaldhurst facility.

the zoning to allow the expansion

to go ahead.

They decided the best way to

do so was through the Greater

Christchurch Regeneration Act.

Today, the city council’s regulatory

performance committee

will decide whether to ask staff

to investigate a way of doing so

through the Act, and to report

back to city councillors.

It would require working with

Regenerate Christchurch and the

department of prime minister

and Cabinet.

It comes just as McDonald’s

has applied for resource consent

to the city council to build a new

restaurant and drive through opposite

the sporting facility.

The idea to speed up the

zone-changing process has been

supported by Sport Canterbury,

Christchurch Netball Centre,

Canterbury Basketball Association,

Mainland Football,

Canterbury Water Polo, Southern

Districts Football Club,

ChristchurchNZ, and Apollo

Projects – Aquatic and Sporting

Facilities, who all wrote to the

city council asking it to help

change the zoning.

Wigram MP Megan Woods

and Canterbury Employers’

Chamber of Commerce chief

executive Peter Townsend have

also written in support of using

the act to do so.

Dr Woods said it has the

potential to be a really good asset

for western Christchurch but the

community must be involved.

“I think what we absolutely

have to do is make sure that we

get the views of the community

in the process as well,” she said.

The existing football facility

has two full size artificial

football pitches, four artificial

mini-pitches, a full-size natural

turf pitch, clubroom facilities,

café, administrative offices,

grandstand seating for about

1000 people.

Hugh Paterson

Retired vicar’s work in churches,

Hugh Paterson, 83, has spent most of his life in

Sheffield, working to help the community – both

in the church and in the garden. He spoke to

Georgia O’Connor-Harding

How long have you lived in

Sheffield for?

I have lived here for 50 years.

For 35 years I was the vicar of the

Parish of Malvern. Then I retired

and we bought the house and

the parish bought a new vicarage

down in Darfield. I take an

occasional service at St Ambrose

but not regularly. The parish

consists of a number of churches.

One at Courtenay, Kirwee, Darfield,

Sheffield, Springfield and

Arthur’s Pass.

Is St Ambrose a significant

building to Sheffield?

Yes it is. It was built in the mid

fifties. Over the years we have

landscaped it and planted trees

around it. It is a fairly attractive

site.

I understand you are heavily

involved with planting projects

and beautifying the township?

Yes, I help do it. The community

does it. We planted

every year for the last 10 to 12

years. We have planted between

1000-2000 daffodils around the

Sheffield-Waddington area each

year. They don’t go very far. We

like daffodils. They are easy to

plant, and not a lot of trouble. As

long as we can persuade Sicon

not to have them mowed, they

will continue flowering for a long

time. They are along the railway

line and we have the TranzAlpine

going through so we try to

make the place look attractive.

You have been in Sheffield for

a long time. What is so special

about the place?

We have glorious views of the

mountains. A friend of mine

who has spent time in the Himalayas

has always maintained

Sheffield has a better view of the

mountains than he ever got in

the Himalayas, because he was

always up against them too close.

Here you get the Canterbury

Plains, and then you get to look

into the mountains. It is a small

pleasant, friendly place. It has a

stimulating climate, although

I wouldn’t say it is easy to live

with. We get wind, nor-westers,

rain and snow, so it is always

varied. You have to be careful

SACRED: Sheffield resident Hugh Paterson officiating at a marriage ceremony.

what you plant.

I understand you have been

involved in planting projects

in Sheffield for the upcoming

commemorations for the Battle

of Passchendaele?

We have done planting projects

for the 100 th anniversary of

the start of World War 1, at the

cenotaph. We have commemorated

the beginning of World

War 1, the 100 th anniversary of

Anzac Day and the 100 th anniversary

of the Battle of the

Somme. This Thursday we will

celebrate the 100 th anniversary

of the Battle of Passchendaele.

And that consists of placing a

cross with details of the battle on

it and planting a Gallipoli oak

at the cenotaph. The Gallipoli

oaks come from the oak tree at

the Bridge of Remembrance in

Christchurch. Douglas Deans,

of the original Deans family

who fought at Gallipoli, sent

acorns from the battle to his

mother. She planted them and

one was planted at the Bridge

of Remembrance. Our family

has collected acorns from there

and grown them on our private

gardens. Sheffield Contributing

School will attend. They will sing

for us and their kapa haka group

will be present. Their community

group will participate and

we will have a cup of tea back at

the school.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Are you planning to plant a

tree for each soldier?

What we will do on Armistice

Day, November 11 next year, we

intend to plant a row of Gallipoli

oaks at the cenotaph. One for

each of the names of those killed

during World War 1. That is

20 names, 20 oak trees with 20

crosses next to them, with their

name and ranking and so forth.

Do you have any connections

to the war?

Not from Sheffield, I do from

my hometown in Taranaki. My

father, served in the World War

1 and two uncles.One of who was

killed.

You have done a lot of work to

beautify the area? Are there any

projects we have missed?

We are always improving the

trees in the local reserve. We have

got a planting programme and

we keep working on that one.

You are on the Sheffield township

committee? Any issues in

need of addressing?

One of the key issues is getting

the earthquake repairs getting

completed on the Sheffield Hall.

We try keep the place attractive.

Tell me about your seed business

you used to run?

For many years my late wife

Ena and I ran our little business

which collected seeds of pine

wife Ena ran a business which sold pine plants from the mountains around the world.

plants from the mountains. We

used to sell them all around the

world. They went everywhere.

The funds from that were used to

help the parish. Mainly Europe,

the western side of America and

sometimes Australia. They like

these extraordinary New Zealand

plants. It is some years now since

we stopped doing it. It would

now be difficult because of all the

restrictions put on customs and

biosecurity. We did it from 1980

to about 2000. The name of the

business was Southern Seeds, and

it was based in Sheffield.

Tell me about your wife, she

was obviously interested in

gardening as well.

Yes, she was, but she was a

professional botanist. We met at

Canterbury University long ago. I

was doing my theological studies.

Did you always want to become

a reverend?

I don’t know about always, but

it was something I decided on

when I was at university. I first

attended university in Dunedin.

Then I came up to Christchurch,

to the theological college, and

completed a degree here in Canterbury.

I was ordained in 1960

and my wife and I were married

in 1961. Those days we lived in

Timaru. We moved to Hokitika

and then we came to Sheffield.

We got stuck in Sheffield.

In your role as reverend did

you go on any pilgrimages?

No, I am not a travelling man.

I have never owned a passport. I

am not particularly interested in

travelling.

What do you see in the future

for churches out Malvern way?

They will always be here. They

play a very important part in the

community. They are one of several

things that bring the community

together, like the schools

and the sports clubs.

Do you have any children?

I have three children. My eldest

lives out here with me. My

second child lives with his wife in

Darfield and my youngest daughter

lives in Springfield. They are

all nearby – I am very lucky. The

eldest one works for Colombo

St Countdown, my second is a

paramedic with St John and the

youngest works in the library at

Canterbury University.

Do you have any other hobbies

or interests?

My main hobbies are gardening

and reading. I just finished a

book on the Battle of Passchendaele.

Council supports

Rolleston Men’s Shed

Selwyn District Council and the Rolleston Men’s Shed have formalised their partnership by signing

the lease on the community group’s site at Dynes Road.

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says the Council is looking forward to working closely with the

group and supporting them in their community-focused projects.

Rolleston Men’s Shed Chairman Stephen Rushton says they wouldn’t be where they are today

without the help from the Council.

“We are very grateful to the Council for providing the land, funding and technical support to help

us get this idea off the ground. The staff have been so friendly and easy to work with,” he says.

Since opening three years ago the Rolleston Men’s Shed has worked on numerous projects to

benefit Rolleston and the wider community in Selwyn, including repairing the Rotary Club’s worn

out lectern, creating the community book exchange box in Prebbleton, and designing, building

and assembling a workshop for Rolleston Playcentre for children to play in.

The Shed welcomes all who have an interest in technical ‘things’, such as doing projects around

the Selwyn district, doing personal projects or simply fixing things. The Shed is a very social

group, and each day starts with a cup of coffee or tea with other members.

From starting with just five members it has now grown to around 65 members, who range from

teenagers to retirees. The group is planning an expansion at their Dynes Road shed location.

The Council is also supporting the establishment of new Men’s Shed groups in Darfield and Lincoln.

Furry friends aid reading confidence

After a positive response to the rollout of Paws for Reading, the Selwyn District Libraries programme is

now open for bookings at Leeston and Rolleston libraries in term four.

The programme encourages children to read to a friendly dog, helping them gain greater confidence

reading aloud, as well as developing their reading literacy.

Selwyn Libraries Manager Vicki Carlyon says the programme has been very popular.

“After running the Paws for Reading trial in term two and three this year we have been very pleased with

the feedback we’ve received from children and their parents,” she says.

“The volunteer dog owners selected by the Selwyn Dog Training Club have also enjoyed contributing

to children’s reading progress and seeing the enjoyment both dogs and children take from their

interactions.”

Stanley (aged six) and Edward Goh (aged five), are brothers who have both attended Paws for Reading

sessions at Rolleston Library. Stanley says he likes reading to the dogs because “the dogs listen and

like my stories”.

Edward’s favourite books to read to the

dogs are books about cats. The boys’

mother Heather Goh says the sessions are

very beneficial to their reading confidence.

“Reading to dogs has helped them a lot

with their reading and I have noticed they

are now more comfortable reading out

loud,” she says.

Dogs have been carefully selected and

are monitored by their handler. Library

staff members are also present during the

sessions, however children are encouraged

to read to the dog with minimal adult

intervention.

Bookings are open now for term four. Visit

www.selwynlibraries.co.nz or contact your

local library for more information.

Marwan Sayeed (aged six) enjoys reading to Indy.

Stimulating memory through art to be continued

Love creating art? Have difficulty with your memory?

Following a successful trial, art therapy classes will now be available each school term on Thursday

afternoons starting Tuesday 19 October. The free therapeutic art classes are being offered at the

Rolleston Community Centre. Led by local Selwyn artist Bridget Carr, the sessions aim to encourage

memory recall through the process of creating art. All are welcome, with no prior experience necessary.

For information and to register please contact Bridget on 347 3577 or 021 248 4315.

Community funding information evening

Are you a member of a community group, club or organisation in Selwyn and looking for some funding?

Make sure you come to the Community Funding Information Session being held on Thursday 26

October, 7–9pm at Lincoln Event Centre.

Four expert speakers will spend half an hour each talking about funding opportunities which may be

suitable for your group.

Ann O’Connor is a Community Advisor for the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) and will present

information on RealMe, what it is, and how it works. Ann will also explain how RealMe is used to apply

for funds through the DIA system and an overview of the funds they administer.

Courtenay Sheat, Community Engagement Advisor at Rātā Foundation will be providing groups with an

overview of Rātā Foundation funding including their focus areas and criteria.

Donna Morris from Webfair will present this new innovative concept to raise money without cash.

WebFair provides a win for gifters, a win for buyers and a win for Mother Earth. Think charity auction

meets white elephant stall – where everyone can make a difference.

Brenda Smith will present on Generosity NZ, including an overview on how to access the GivUs GivMe

databases and provide a live interactive demonstration.

SELWYN TIMES

Your Local Views

Readers respond to

the Selwyn Times article

on the district ranking

as second in the country

for most dangerous rural

intersections. Readers

were asked if they thought

Selwyn’s intersections were

dangerous

Steve Young – In response

to your question on the front

page of today’s Selwyn Times,

I would say no...and yes! I note

that in the comments on the

Kirwee intersection, most people

draw attention to the fact that

most drivers (most of whom are

local) don’t stop at the stop signs.

But I also note that there are no

right-turn bays on any of the intersections

on SH73 in 100km/h

areas except the recentlycompleted

one at Chatterton’s

Rd. This is a clear breach of the

national state highway standards.

So normally, I would say it’s

drivers that are dangerous, but

I think I’m entitled to expect

that state highways comply with

national standards.

Dave Saville – The one that

I find really dangerous is where

Halkett Rd joins the Main West

Coast Rd (State Highway 73). I

travel home from work each day

between 5 and 6pm, when the

traffic heading west is almost a

solid stream of traffic. The traffic

splits at this intersection, with

between a quarter and a third

of us turning off State Highway

73 onto Halkett Rd. NZTA

re-did the intersection a year

or so ago, so it now has a STOP

sign for traffic heading east, in

to Christchurch, which works

well. But, to the great surprise of

those of us who use the intersection

daily, they failed to make a

turning bay for vehicles heading

west, that wish to turn on to

Halkett Rd. Trying to turn off

State Highway 73 while in the

midst of a traffic stream of tired

commuters going at 100 km/pph,

is a scary and risky affair. To

compound the problem, the road

verge (shoulder) is not especially

good at this point, but has to

cope with vehicles thundering

along it to avoid the queue of up

to three – four vehicles waiting

to turn onto Halkett Rd. I am

DANGER: The intersection of State Highway 73 and Courtney Rd in Kirwee.

surprised that no one has been

killed at this intersection (as far

as I know). At the nearby, little

used intersection, of Chattertons

Rd with State Highway 73, NZTA

have installed excellent turning

bays for both east and westbound

traffic. This has perhaps

been paid for by newly consented

quarries. We need to put pressure

on NZTA to also do this at

the Halkett, State Highway 73

intersection. I visited the district

council’s (“Assets” section) last

month to alert them to the problem.

They said to talk to NZTA,

which I have yet to do.

Tony Rondel – There is

nothing dangerous about Selwyn

intersections the problem we

have is incompetent drivers who

do not STOP at stop signs, do not

know what the rules are regards

to keeping to correct lane when

turning at intersections, too busy

on their electronic devices to

spot what is happening in time,

travelling far too close to other

vehicles.

Readers respond to

Selwyn Times’ article on

the Prebbleton Community

Swimming Pool closure

Steph Calcroft – We would

hate to see the pool get demolished.

We got the key last year

for the first time. It was amazing

to have a pool in Prebbleton

where we can just pop down to

after dinner on a lovely summer

evening. It got the kids out from

behind the ipads and televisions

giving them much needed

exercise. Also my children don’t

go to Prebbleton School so for

the first time since we have lived

in Prebbleton they felt a since

of belonging, being apart of the

Prebbleton community, their

community. It gave them to meet

some children who live in their

neighbourhood, as well as building

their confidence in the water.

Especially as the pool is very

deep it lets them learn how to

manage themselves in deep water

in a very safe environment. The

pool would be a great loss to the

community. We certainly would

miss it!

Jeremy Calcroft – I am

writing to express my concern

about the closure of the Prebbleton

School pool. I live in Prebbleton

with my family. Last summer

we had a key to the pool and

used it, on average, three times

a week over the pools season. It

was great to have such easy access

to the a great facility. Rather

than having to go in the car we

were able to bike or scooter down

in less than 10 minutes. Over the

holidays the children loved having

a fun activity and a a good

reason to get out of the house.

Our favourite time was to pop

down to the pool for an hour or

so after dinner. Our children are

typical of other children today

and are drawn to wards tablets

and other devices so it was awesome

to have an activity on hand

that got them active. Also, with

such regular dips in the pool the

children’s growth in confidence

and ability in the pool was really

noticeable. Being in a smaller

setting, the pool has a really

friendly atmosphere and we

found that often the same family

were at the pool at the same

time as us. We met some of our

neighbours from further down

the street that we had not spoken

to before and this increased the

sense of community. We would

dearly miss the pool if it were to

close. Although there are council

pools available, due to the travelling

time, we just would not go

swimming as often. There must

be an alternative site available

for the school to build on so that

Prebbleton can keep the pool.

PHOTO: ROSS KIDDIE

Anne Bouterey – I understand

the pool hasn’t been used

since 2005, however it seems to

be a policy of MoE to continually

close school pools. I recall

a time when every school had

a pool or one to use not too far

from their own school/home.

To me it is a load of rubbish that

the pool is too small for class

teaching, unless of course a class

of 40 plus is expected to be there

altogether with one teacher.

I would suggest just another

excuse. As a young third former

I actually taught lifesaving skills

to older students at high school

in a smallish pool (in cold water

of course). The size is not the important

thing, teaching children

to stay afloat and get themselves

along in the water is the beginning.

Better swimming skills

come once they have confidence

and enjoy the water. We have a

high rate of child drownings in

the country which is unacceptable

considering we are a narrow

country surrounded by water.

My wise mother, a non-swimmer,

ensured we learnt to swim

at an early age, the ministry and

the district council need to be

as sensible. It isn’t an option for

some parents to transport their

children to Rolleston, a closer

community option needs to be

available if lives are important.

The MoE has an obligation to assist

in this, the money would be

well spent with fewer drownings

or near drownings.

SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Tuesday October 10 2017 17

Sonja Ball – I have heard and

now read about the Prebbleton

Pool closure. Rather upset that

it is happening as my family use

this pool a lot . It’s local and nice

and handy if you want to pop in

for a quick dip or many throughout

the day. The fee is really

reasonable and it’s a nice place to

be. With the addition of the life

guards last year the general behaviour

of the patrons has been

great. And I am sure all the OSH

requirements have been met. I

am sure the rate payers would be

interested and rather annoyed

to know that the amount of

money spent on the pool over the

last few years is now effectively

wasted. There has been new fencing,

new and mended seating the

exterior has been painted and the

pool itself repaired and painted,

there has been an alarm installed

and a new entry system also the

pump has had a few dollars spent

on it as well. Not to mention

the cost involved in getting a

new water supply pipe installed

so the pool and school can run

separately. I am sure that the

closure was in the wind before

most of these costly upgrades

were approved. I find it rather

unusual that the school gets a

new principal, and the pool gets

closed. The school has not used

the pool for many years now

as the depth is a problem for children

learning to swim. However

this could be fixed with the use

of those submersible platforms

and a swim teacher coming on

site rather than shipping 80 odd

children off site. Also teachers

are not allowed to teach children

to swim as they are not qualified

swim instructors – which is

why many school children are

bussed to purpose built pools

with qualified instructors to

have swim lessons. Prebbleton is

expanding at a very quick pace,

the school is land locked. I am

sure that the addition of a few

more class rooms will help but at

some point the size of Prebbleton

will outgrow the schools capacity

again – then what? It’s all

very well bowling the pool to

add more classrooms but what

about the outdoor space that is

required legally for each child

at some point this will also be

outgrown. Why not relocate the

school now to a bigger site that

will accommodate the amount

of children that will be in the

area. Surely the MoE have done

the figures. We could then keep

the community pool and turn

the school site into a few more

residential plots and/or another

sports field. The kindy may also

need to expand. This pool has

been run by the community for

the community for many years

and has been well supported.

Can we squeeze one more season

out before demolition starts – do

we have a start date? It’s a shame

that someone with a flick of a

pen can take it all away. Shame

also that the community has not

been involved in this decision.

Would love to see some more

writing in the paper on local’s

thoughts. I would like to hope

you have a great response, but it

may be a battle too big to take on

for the community.

A reader responds to the

Lincoln comedy show at

the weekend

Bob Lineham – On Saturday

my wife and I attended the Live

in Lincoln Comedy Show. We

enjoy good comedy and wanted

to support this local event which

had been widely publicised. We

were very disappointed with the

predominance of foul language

and lack of content other than

almost total emphasis on sex.

Whatever happened to genuine

comedy with talented comedians

who can make an audience laugh

without the repetitive use of one

particular offensive four-letter

word through a show? I can tolerate

the odd borderline joke but

this performance was in very bad

taste and I am very glad we did

not invite others to attend with

us. Can our top comedians not

come up something better than

that or this a reflection on the

low state of society today?

Serving up new courts

THE FIRST ball has been served

in celebration of the opening

of three new tennis courts in

Weedons.

Weedons Tennis Club celebrated

the opening of its three

new courts recently with a formal

gathering of tennis players, guests

and community members.

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.

The opening was held at

Weedons Reserve with the event

organised by the club’s secretary

Julie Cockburn.

The first serve was made by

Stratton Construction owner Andrew

Stratton, who with his team

of workers constructed the tennis

courts, fencing and volley board.

It was attended by district

councillor Jeff Bland, who spoke

about the unique area and

how the community can enjoy

Weedons.

Weedons Reserve Committee

chairman Peter Holmes spoke

about the hard work reserve

members had put into the facility

and the great facilities available

for tennis, cricket and golf.

Weedons Tennis Club chairman

Alan Drewett spoke about

the beginning of the club in 1910,

ACE: The new courts at

Weedons Tennis Club.

The ribbon was cut by Joy

Curragh.

the continuation of junior tennis

and the introduction of the president’s

team six years ago.

The cutting of the blue and

green ribbons to open the

new courts was performed by

Weedons’ oldest resident and former

tennis player Joy Curragh.

The cutting of the cake, iced by

Kirstie Hamilton, was performed

by two junior club members –

Laura Hamilton and Mitchell

Cockburn.

Mrs Cockburn said it was a

relaxed environment.

“A great afternoon was had by

all,” she said.

SLAP SHOT: Brooke Whitman has been selected in the

under-18 women’s national ice hockey team to travel to Kuala

Lumpur in March.

Lincoln High girl in

national ice hockey team

• By Andrew King

LINCOLN HIGH’S Brooke

Whitman has been selected in

the under-18 women’s national

ice hockey team.

The 14-year-old is part of the

team that will travel to Kuala

Lumpur in March to compete

in the IIHF ice hockey women’s

challenge cup Asia tournament.

They will face Thailand, Singapore

and a Chinese Taipei team.

She played a crucial role in the

under-18 team last year that won

the International Ice Hockey

Federation Challenge Cup of

Asia after going through the

tournament undefeated.

Brooke’s father, Howard, said

she is a pure, clean player who

doesn’t mind “the hits” but she

really enjoys just playing the

game.

She plays defence for the

Canterbury Minors Ice Hockey

club in the midget grade and in

the senior Canterbury women’s

team.

The tournament gives Asian

countries that are not in the

world championship programme,

or that play in a lower

division, a chance to compete.

Other Canterbury players

included in the side are Burnside

Milligan on Bathurst podium

Success on

debut at

Mt Panorama

• BY Gordon Findlater

IT WAS a near perfect Bathurst

debut for Prebbleton’s Jack

Milligan, who climbed the

podium at Mount Panorama.

Milligan, 21, came into the

weekend with the high goal of

getting a top-10 finish and it

didn’t take him

long to exceed

that.

The highlight

of the week was

third place in

the second race

in the Toyota

86 Racing

Jack Milligan

Series.

Milligan got

a good getaway

in race two to slot into third

around the outside of turn one

and into second by turn two.

He very nearly won the race

after diving around the outside

of leader and ultimate winner

Dylan Gulson. But the move

didn’t come off, and cost him

second place to Jimmy Vernon.

Milligan also set the fastest

racing lap time, just one tenth

slower than the Toyota 86 lap

record.

Earlier in the week, Milligan

FAST: Jack Milligan was the only Kiwi competing in the Toyota

86s at Bathurst. ​

PHOTO: MATTHEW HANSEN

showed he was on the pace by

finishing Friday’s qualifying

session with the seventh fastest

time.

In the opening race, he improved

on his starting position,

eventually moving into fourth

spot.

The Bathurst experience

saw Milligan take on some of

Australia’s up and coming motorsport

stars, as well as stalwarts

like Leanne Tander and David

Brabham.

SELWYN TIMES

Milligan was the only New

Zealander in the 36-car field of

Toyota 86s, one of the main support

class for the V8 Supercars.

He secured the trip to Bathurst

to compete in that round of the

Aussie 86 series as part of the

rookie title in the New Zealand

Toyota 86 Championship.

His attention now turns to the

NZ Toyota 86 Championship,

which starts with the opening

round at Pukekohe on

November 3.

ROLLESTON

Vehicle maintenance is essential

for safe reliable motoring

When life is busy we may forget to have our motor vehicles serviced regularly,

something that is just as important for a late model car as for one that is older.

“Now that warrant of fitness checks

have gone out to a year for late model

vehicles many people mistakenly believe

they need less maintenance and don’t

worry about organising a service in

between,” advises Simon Wilson, owner of

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols.

Regular servicing keeps a vehicle

running smoothly and more reliable yet a

myth prevails, that late model vehicles do

not break down.

Simon says more and more cars have

been coming into their yard for repairs,

having broken down due to a lack of

maintenance. He says, a WOF is there

to identify structural problems with

the brakes, suspension and steering all

checked to ensure the vehicle is safe for

you, your family and other motorists.

However, Simon reminds that a year

can be a long time for a vehicle not

to be serviced, maintained or have a

safety check. This is especially true if

a reasonable distance is travelled each

day, the reality for many people living in

Selwyn.

Travelling short distances can also

impact on a vehicle especially if it not

warmed up, as it puts strain on the motor,

increases fuel consumption, and affects

the overall economy of the vehicle.

Tell-tale signs such as the smell of oil

may also be overlooked with an owner

not realising that this could signify an oil

leak. If left and not repaired, this could

cause engine damage. A driver might also

not realise the tread on the tyres is low or

there is uneven wear, factors that can be a

safety hazard.

The team at Rolleston Diesel & Petrols

are only too happy to check over your

vehicle and regularly service it for you as

well as look after its WOF checks when

due.

centre is equipped to look after personal

with a tubular retreat in

one corner.

LINCOLN University

researchers say the days of

the white slice may be over, as

growing health consciousness

drives more consumers to buy

grain loaves, or avoid bread

completely.

A survey of shoppers in supermarkets

by Lincoln lecturers

Sue Trafford and Sharon Forbes

found about half thought white

bread was unhealthy.

Of the shoppers surveyed, 80

per cent perceived multigrain

breads to be healthier than other

options.

It found 23 per cent of shoppers

bought white bread, and 77

non-white.

That was a turnaround from

the numbers almost 40 years

ago, when a 1978 survey of shoppers

found 89 per cent bought

Supermarket scanner data

from across New Zealand

showed sales of white bread fell

four per cent last year, while

non-white bread sales rose 1.6

per cent.

Dr Forbes said a lot of fad diets

pushed messages that carbohydrates

were unhealthy, but they

did not tell the whole story.

“I think the nutritionists need

to speak up a lot louder, because

there are a lot of things in bread,

even in white bread, that we really

need in our diets, like fibre

and folic acid.”

She said bread consumption

could also be reducing due to the

variety of products available for

breakfast or lunch, such as cereals,

smoothies, sushi, salads and

fast food.

BUILD 7

A ‘real show home’ open to the public

Every Sunday in October (12pm-3pm)

the public will have the opportunity to

visit a show home with a difference in

Lincoln. Unlike the usual show homes

people visit when they are in the market

to build a new home, this is a real home

on show, where builder Jamie Cowan

lives with his wife Francesca and their

young son.

“We wanted to show people the Build7

process first-hand, with a home that we

are proud to live in ourselves,” Francesca

says.

Jamie and Francesca are the

Canterbury owners of Build7, a home

building company different from most

other building companies operating in

the New Zealand market.

As Francesca explains: “We don’t

have set plans that clients choose from.

Instead, we sit down with every client

and take the design brief from them,

and that includes their seven ‘musthaves’.

They can also bring in photos of

interiors and styles they like and we can

work from those.

“We find it a lot easier to design a

house from scratch. Everyone has a

different idea for their house, and with

our method they get exactly what they

want. From the briefing we develop a

concept pack, which includes renders,

a floor plan and elevations, and this is a

free service.”

Top-quality construction of the client’s

home is ensured with Jamie’s 18 years’

building experience – he completed

his apprenticeship and early years in

Canterbury before spending significant

time in Sydney fine-tuning his craft. As

the project manager on every build, he is

in contact with the client right through

the process.

Build7 designs and builds homes for

all budgets, Francesca says.

“We work within the client’s budget,

which can range from a Kiwisaver first

home build, right through to highend

properties, where we work with

architects if required.”

The company has a range of suppliers,

coupled with strong trade relationships

that come with being a national building

company, giving clients an extensive

selection of materials and fittings to

choose from, while the services of an

interior designer are included in the

package.

Jamie and Francesca’s home is part of

Tomorrow’s Show Homes, a programme

presenting show homes around New

Zealand that are more innovative than

standard homes.

A four-bedroom home, it was

designed it for maximum light, with

a contemporary décor and a good

connection between indoors and

outdoors.

Located at 45 Sunline Avenue in the

Flemington subdivision in Lincoln, it is

open for viewing from 12pm-3pm every

Sunday in October.

at Ferrymead Golf is the

creation of the Ferrymead

We are unaware of any issues that have arisen from using

grey water from washing veges or cooking water.

It would be wise to mention that if you are going to use

the water from washing dishes, use eco-friendly, or plantfriendly

liquids. When you apply the water, you should try

to keep it off the foliage of plants if possible.

This goes for all types of grey water.

handy hint

If you are wanting to re-pipe to accommodate for grey water,

you will need to check the rules and regulations around

this. It would also pay to get in touch with a plumber.

Otherwise, just remove the grey water from the sink or pots

and tip it into a bucket that you can then use to water the

garden with.

WHAT DO I NEED FOR MY LAWN?

Spring is definitely a great time to attend to your lawn, but how do you

know which product it is that you need? The team at Intelligro are happy to

talk with you about what it is that you are trying to achieve, and give you

a recommendation that is going to be best for your job. Here are our top

lawn-related products, and what you’d need to use them for.

Lawn Construction Mix

If you are constructing a new lawn, this is the

product you need. It is designed to create the

perfect growing environment for lawn seed to

germinate and develop into lush grass. It is a

great base product, so if you are starting from

scratch, this is the one for you.

Lawn Top Dressing Mix

This mix is soil-free, easy to spread, and the

seed will germinate well in it. This is the

product you need if you having existing lawns

that need repairs such as filling in small holes,

or re-seeding patchy areas.

Lawn Fertiliser

Lawn Fertiliser is designed to enhance your

lawn, giving it a helpful boost when nutrients

are lacking, creating a fuller, greener, lushlooking

lawn. If your existing lawn is looking

a bit sad, and is in need of some TLC, give it

a sprinkle of our lawn fertiliser to give it a

nutritional boost!

Spring gardening guide | 2017

intelligro is the leading landscape centre in the

Selwyn district, providing top quality landscape and

garden supplies to both commercial customers and

the general public. Open 7 days a week, we are

Intelligro Veggie Garden Mix is ideal. It is packed

with nutrients that your veggies will thrive on

through the growing season. It is available in

bulk, as well as in 35L bags. This is our top seller!

• Healthy soil makes for healthy plants. Compost,

• If you are looking to plant tomatoes, wait until

Labour Weekend unless you have a glasshouse.

These hungry plants require a lot of nutrients

through their growing season, and continue to

need it even when they have started to produce

their fruit. Using a top quality potting mix like Patio Plus, or Tomato Mix is essential

for a bountiful crop. A topdressing fertiliser is on the must have list as well. You can

use Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser or Top Dressing Fertiliser depending on where you

have planted the tomatoes.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

SELWYN TIMES

Papanui

High School

As the weather gets warmer and the

evenings get longer it is the ideal time to get

out of the house and learn something new

and meet some new people by taking part

in one of the wide range of nightclasses on

offer at Papanui High School for Term 4

beginning from Tuesday 24 October.

From Art to Yoga and everything in

between we are sure regardless of your

age or interest you will find something

to tempt you. Classes at Papanui High

School are held in a warm, friendly relaxed

environment and our tutors are supportive

and well qualified in their chosen fields.

A new course on offer is Creative Candle

Making which will teach you to create

your own soy container candles and

melts, either for yourself or ideal as a gift.

Discover more about soy wax, fragrance,

wick selection and trouble shooting

commom candle making issues. This is a

hands on course where you will make 3 full

sized scented candles, 6 melts, 5 tea lights

and 1 votive. The cost of all materials is

included in the course fee. This course is

being taught by Jane Alexander and will be

held at Papanui High School on Saturday 4

November between 10 am – 4 pm at a cost

of $148.

For further information and enrolment

in this or any of our Term 4 courses

please visit our website on www.papanui.

Ensuring a safe

work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of

ensuring a safe work place, but also an

integral part of our engagement with

the wider community. We all learn the

necessary skills to ensure that in times of

emergency we are able to assist our work

colleagues, but are we able to take these

skills home, into the community or on to

the sports field?

Not all work places are the same and

the injury risk for each place can be

wide and variable. The office attended by

administrators does not carry the same

risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance

from a regular ambulance service. It is

therefore essential that you pick the right

first aid course to suit all of your activities

– both professional and social.

Take, for example, an office worker who

does not have a high risk work environment

and whose concern might be to ensure

that they can deal with minor cuts and

superficial injuries, or the ability to perform

effective CPR. These skills can be achieved

on a course of eight hours duration and

would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to

a sports field either as a spectator or player

when a higher level injury occurs. The

eight hour course covering unit standards

6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does

not cover head neck and spinal injuries,

eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of

the work place, in fact one in three injuries

occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen.

New Zealand children are twice as likely

to die through injury as children who live

in Australia. They mostly die as a result

of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the

home. Fatalities from leisure and sport are

not far behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the

additional unit standard 6400 and provides

a wide knowledge base for medium to high

risk environments. This course covers

many of the skills required to deal with

the most common injuries, such as falls

(which can result in head, neck and spinal

injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

If you are not sure on the course best

suited to your needs, ask your accredited

first aid training provider. They can explain

the course content and give you options

that will best suit your needs. Look beyond

the workplace and consider your family

and your location. Check that you have a

good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date

with replenished items, and that everyone

knows where it is located.

your mindfulness, this may work for

you. This method of drawing does not

build into your everyday, or you can

you can then use this design practise to

living, with so many desirable & sought-after features, all

encompassed in such a practical layout. When entering the

for the cooler months. The kitchen is beautifully finished

with a double fridge space, 90cm oven & gas hobs, walk

There’s space for all the family, with 4 bedrooms & a study,

plus in the corner of the hall there’s a handy rumpus space,

perfect for extra hobbies or a chill-out zone. The master

suite opens to the lawn area, so you can sit in bed & look

out to your private slice of paradise, & you’ll love the

ensuite with double tiled shower & under-floor heating

– which features in all tiled areas throughout the house.

To top things off on this 1030m2 section, there’s triple car

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Choices for bathrooms

Most new homes are built with a main bathroom and ensuite off the master

bedroom. The size and fit-out of these varies from affordable to luxuriant.

This is one area of the home that can add

to the build price though not everyone is

concerned about price.

If you have the opportunity and desire

to treat yourself then large spacious walkin

showers with double shower heads,

freestanding baths, under-floor heating,

tiled walls and floors, and even a bidet

may be serious considerations.

The size of the house along with the

number people, who will live there, as well

as the age of the occupants and whether

guests might stay regularly, may also be

influencers in the number of bathrooms

and toilets included within the house

layout.

A toilet may be located near the garage

or backdoor making it handy for those

working or playing outside, saving the

carpet from being walked on by dirty

footwear.

Visiting showhomes will afford lots of

ideas for décor and the positioning of

these rooms. Some are now featuring more

than one ensuite with walk-in glass wall or

cubicle showers, offering an ideal option

to cater for extra adults or teenagers.

The more bathrooms and toilets the

more cleaning so consider how useful

those extra little rooms will be. This also

applies to freestanding baths which look

grand but will collect their share of dust

and grime around the back.

More bathrooms are

great where those

living in the home

have similar work

and play routines.

On the upside, more bathrooms are

great where those living in the home have

similar work and play routines. The extra

facilities will take pressure off and make

for a more harmonious lifestyle.

For two-storey homes or single level

dwellings where the living area is apart

from the bedrooms, having a separate

toilet with wash basin downstairs close

and to the living area, will be advantageous

for family and guests.

The interior design and décor of

bathrooms is still erring towards opulent

elegance featuring large polished tiles,

freestanding baths, wall mounted vanities

and monotone colours of black, white and

grey, augmented with earthy colours or a

splash of vibrant blue, teal or yellow.

Overseas, one might see spacious

bathrooms that seem more like a mini

lounge than functional area with features

such as anti-fog mirrors, televisions, a

comfy chair and large rug on the floor.

Lastly, when it comes to an important

fixture of this part of the home take time

to choose from the wide range of toilets

available, looking for simple lines for style

and easy cleaning, and weighing up the

importance of features like a soft close seat

and a water saving option. The latter may

be ideal if located on a lifestyle block or

farm where water usage is a concern.

Tiled walls & floors

give an opulent feel.

Freestanding baths

give a spacious feel.

A bidet is an option.

A toilet with washbasin is

convenient for family & guests.

Checklist for selling your home

MAKE SMALL FIXES

Inspect your home with a buyer’s

eyes, and correct the flaws that are

most egregious (if affordable) or

can be relatively easily fixed—from

repairing cracks in the walkways

to repainting dingy walls or oiling

creaky hinges.

SET A PRICE

A real estate agent will give you a

market analysis free of charge or

commitment. Ask a few to get a

broader picture of the market, then

ask to see listings for properties

similar to yours that have sold

in the past six months. Check

out comparable listings yourself

in the real estate section of your

newspaper or on websites. Then

decide whether you want a quick,

easy sale or the highest possible

price.

CLEAN & DECLUTTER

Weed out excess furniture,

knicknacks, and “stuff ”—toss it,

donate it, give it away, sell it at a

yard sale, or put it into storage—so

the house seems more spacious and

buyers can imagine themselves in it.

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT

MAINTENANCE

From the moment you start

showing your house, keep the lawn

mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens

weeded, rooms spotless and

clutter-free.

READY YOUR HOME FOR

OPEN DAYS

Hide pocketable valuables,

display fresh flowers or bowls

of fruit, bake a batch of cookies

for the homey smell, open the

drapes, keep pets out of sight.

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO

YOUR OWN BUILDING

INSPECTION

It may save you time, especially

with older homes, to identify—

and potentially solve—problems

your buyer’s inspection will

discover later.
