Illegal use

of hydrant

water in

council

spotlight

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE DISTRICT council

is working to tighten up its

processes to stop unauthorised

companies from illegally

extracting water from fire

hydrants.

It is encouraging residents to

email photos of companies taking

water from fire hydrants so it can

verify if it is stealing the water or

not.

Selwyn Times was made aware

of the issue after a Rolleston

resident, who did not want to be

named, noticed companies with

large water tankers taking water

from nearby fire hydrants.

Registered land developers use

the water on their subdivision to

comply with Environment Canterbury’s

Air Regional Plan.

The district council charges

companies for water through the

developers approaching its assets

department and seeking authorisation.

District council water services

team leader Cinnil Thomas said

all land developers working

within the district council area

are registered and are authorised

to take water.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

GOOD ON the district

council for taking steps to stop

companies illegally taking water

from roadside hydrants (see

page 1).

An eagle eyed resident spotted

such a thing and alerted the

Selwyn Times last week, and she’s

right on the button: Our precious

water supply is being tapped into

by some thirsty for more profit.

Police continue to make inquiries

into the brutal attack on a

15-year-old in Rolleston – the

one where his head was held

under water while others chanted

“drown him, drown him”. People

have been interviewed and all

police are saying at the moment is

inquiries are continuing.

All complaints have now been

dropped against West Melton

under-14.5 rugby coach Amanda

Tomlinson who got into strife last

season (see page 7).

Commonsense has prevailed.

Complaints dropped

against junior rugby coach

Police urge

her to keep

coaching

• By Andrew King

A WEST Melton rugby coach

pulling the pin on helping

out her club would be a “real

shame,” a police officer said.

The under-14.5s coach

Amanda

Tomlinson

(left) was

under

investigation

by police

and the

Canterbury

Rugby

Football Union after an

altercation on the field with a

Lincoln player in July.

It was alleged she grabbed

the player by his collar after he

kicked someone from her team

in the mouth during a match.

Both investigations have been

dropped due to the complaint

being withdrawn.

PRE-GAME: The West Melton under 15 rugby team, which was coached by Amanda

Tomlinson, before the match where the incident happened.

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 3 MARCH 2018

Ms Tomlinson said she won’t

coach again after the incident

and wouldn’t comment further

when contacted on Thursday.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills told

the Selwyn Times it would be a

“real shame” if she let the incident

take away from her incredible

work in the community.

“We think she should carry

on. She is a valued member of

the community and should

continue to coach,” he said.

“I would be sad to

think she would not continue.”

Ellesmere Rugby Union president

Stuart Boon said he would

not have a problem with her

returning to coach.

“The penalty has been served

. . . she has had a long involvement

with rugby and she is very

good with the management side

of things,” he said.

Moody scarecrow joins group

•From page 1

It was made by

Moody’s former club

Lincoln, and sponsored

with $1000 by Lincoln

Challenge.

Principal Mike

Molloy said pupils were

excited to have Moody

visit with some wearing

All Blacks and Lincoln

tops.

For the four months

leading up to the jubilee

the scarecrows will

remain in the paddock

on Shands Rd to

promote the fete event.

Businesses have

got on board, either

sponsoring a

scarecrow at $1000 or

delivering their own

scarecrow to get behind

the event.

The fundraising will

go towards a jubilee

pavilion structure to

be installed over the

school’s netball court

area.

Last month the school

sent out an email asking

businesses to either

supply or sponsor a

scarecrow.

It has quickly gained

traction with the

Christchurch Southern

Motorway Stage 2

project team being

the first to sponsor a

scarecrow worth

$1000.

Four more sponsors

are likely.

Other scarecrows have

been made, donated by

organisations including

the Lincoln Volunteer

Fire Brigade and the

New Zealand Defence

Force.

The idea of the

scarecrows first came to

life when the school was

planning a fete to be

held as part of its school

celebrations in March

next year.

“At the same time

the scarecrows were

developed by one of our

board members who is a

very creative designer,”

Mr Molloy said.

The original

scarecrows Trev and

Betsy, created by

Belinda McMillan, have

fast become celebrities

in the community.

It was suggested by

another board member

Paul Hill to create a

scarecrow paddock and

have them sponsored.

“We believed that

each business had their

own story to tell and

that the scarecrow

gave them a vehicle

to incorporate their

persona, staff and

business activities,” Mr

Hill said.

He said the children

have loved getting to

know members of the

community

The scarecrows now

have Facebook pages,

Instagram and the

school often receives

phone calls and emails

asking about the

display.

“It has just taken off,”

Mr Molloy said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Man taken to

hospital after

jet boat crash

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

TWO MEN had a lucky escape

when their jet boat flipped and

landed on a bank and became

partially submerged on the

Rakaia River on Saturday.

The incident led to one man

having to dig his way out from

underneath the boat.

Rakaia Volunteer Fire Station

senior station officer Tyrone

Burrowes said while the man was

partially under the water he was

able to breathe.

“He was trapped but not life

threatening,” he said.

The other man was thrown out

of the boat causing his leg to be

pinned beneath the boat and the

bank.

It resulted in the second man

receiving moderate injuries and

he was taken to Ashburton Hospital

for X-rays.

Mr Burrowes said a mechanical

failure was the cause for the jet

boat tipping.

Emergency services were alerted

to the incident by a passerby.

It was attended by the Rakaia

Volunteer Fire Brigade and ambulance

services.

Meeting with Adams

over son’s suspected suicide

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

GREENDALE resident Geoff

Booth will meet with Selwyn

MP Amy Adams this week to

discuss the death of his son and

raise awareness of the mental

health system.

He will meet with Ms Adams

to discuss his son Liam, 21, who

died from a suspected suicide

on October 2, days after he had

been treated at Hillmorton

Hospital.

Liam’s body was found in

Beckenham Park, close to where

he lived.

Mr Booth said he is hoping to

show Ms Adams what is left for

people who survive after there

is suicide in the family and what

sort of affect it has on them.

“She is my local MP – she

represents me in Parliament and

I suppose she needs to be aware,

but it is probably more Jacinda

Ardern and the new Government.

I need to get in their ear

to be able to change the outcome

to suicide,” he said.

He has written to Ms Ardern

and Minister of Health David

Clark to raise awareness

about the country’s mental

health system.

About three weeks before

Liam’s death, he had threatened

to harm himself at Halswell

Quarry Park. Police were called

and he was taken to Christchurch

Hospital.

He was discharged and

continued receiving outpatient

treatment at Hillmorton Hospital

until the Friday before his

death.

Mr Booth has since told the

Canterbury District Health

Board that hospital staff had

wrongly discharged Liam and

taken his word he was not going

to harm himself.

Following Liam’s death, Mr

Booth filed a complaint with the

CDHB and is still waiting for a

response.

Mr Booth has since met with

some of the CDHB’s key managers

to ask what went wrong –

but they were unable to tell him

anything.

He said things have been up

and down for him since the

death of his son.

“Some days you win and some

days you don’t. Some days it

affects you more than others,”

he said.

Liam’s death has been referred

‘Drown him’ case continues

• By Andrew King

POLICE APPEAR to be

closing in the youths who

chanted “drown him”

during the brutal assault of

a teenager.

The 15-year-old victim

was viciously attacked by

a group in Rolleston after

a fireworks display on

November 4.

They dragged him to a

water race and held his

head under water. Some in

the group chanted “drown

him”.

The Selwyn Times has

learned police have been

•From page 1

Companies are charged

Extractions are detected

The district council will

also use media campaigns

to dissuade people from

engaging in illegal extraction.

But Mr Thomas said like

other council areas, there

are sporadic instances of

unauthorised extraction of

water in Selwyn.

“The district council

is working on a process

framework for extraction

of water by entities other

than land developers,” she

said.

The Rolleston resident

said if other people knew

about the issue, residents

can try and get these

“Tankers can pull up and

nobody notices them much

and they skulk off with all

The four suspects are all

However, police are

refusing to reveal where

the investigation is at.

On Monday, Detective

Sergeant Joanne Parks

said the investigation was

“ongoing”.

Many people have posted

about the incident online,

including friends of the

victim, who believe they

know who the attackers

were, said the victim’s

mother.

A friend of the family

posted a message on

their behalf, which

received more than 600

reactions and a number of

saw litres of water spilt over

the ground.

“I don’t want to see a

tanker right next to my

meter taking thousands of

litres for free while I am

paying for every litre I use,”

the resident said.

If residents see companies

taking water, they

can email water.services@

selwyn.govt.nz

Meanwhile, there is no

immediate need for mandatory

water restrictions.

However, the district

council is asking residents

to consider changing the

comments offering support

and condemning the

attack.

“It was amazing to see

how many people came up

to us,” she said.

The victim is a talented

sportsman, his mother,

who did not want to be

named, said.

The attack appears

to have been robberymotivated.

After being dragged to

the water race, he broke

free of his attackers and

ran off, collapsing close to

his home.

The 15-year-old spent

the night in Christchurch

Hospital.

Twisted tales of fantasy for college production

FUN WILL meet fantasy as

College’s stage production of

musical Into the Woods JR.

The school will bring a new

adaption of Stephen Sondheim’s

and James Lapine’s Tony awardwinning

musical of Into the

Woods to life.

The fairy tale-styled production

will be staged at the school

hall this week.

Teachers, parents along with

and technology departments

have been hard at work to create

the production.

Rhythm and Dance Studio

teacher Emma Dunlop has

show.

all of the cast have put in

hours of work and the show

features some brilliant cameo

performances.

“It is difficult for students to

fit in rehearsals with sports,

work and study but these young

performers have come through,”

he said.

Some students have doubled

up in roles as others have pulled

out of the show while one student

is rehearsing on crutches.

“But the show will go on,” Mr

Cook said.

He said while the musical is

The show features all the

classical fictional characters

from Cinderella and Little Red

Beanstalk.

But the tale is twisted

with puppets, pop-up sets, and

top hats in the show’s retelling

of the classic Brothers Grimm

fables.

The production will be performed

this Wednesday and

Thursday.

Tickets can be bought at the

school office or door.

No NCEA allows time

for Christmas concert

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

CHRISTMAS HAS come early

at Rolleston College with the

school gearing up for its holidaythemed

production to be staged

this week.

Elf The Musical JR is the first

production to be staged by the

school as it nears the end of its

founding year at the school.

It features a full year 9 cast

with about 30 students performing

in the show and 10 working

behind the scenes on sound and

lighting.

Teachers Martin Hannan,

Merrin Diack and Sophie Ralph

have also made up the production

team for the show.

Director and teacher Sam

Gimblett said because the school

only has juniors at the moment it

is able to perform an end of year

production because the seniors

are not impacted by NCEA.

“We thought it would be a fun

one to do,” she said.

The show is based on the

American Christmas film Elf

starring Will Ferrell.

It is based on a would-be elf

Buddy who grows up in the

North Pole unaware he is a human.

With Santa’s permission Buddy

embarks on a journey to New

York City to find his real father.

ON STAGE: Rolleston College are ready to stage its first school

production. Rear – Ethan Richards-White in the lead role of

Buddy. Middle row – Samantha Oakley and Kate Stevens. Front

row – Emma Menzies and Ella Jarvis.

The school has been rehearsing

for about 10 weeks.

Miss Gimblett said it is hugely

thankful to Burnside High

School School which has helped

out with costumes.

She said the students are

hard working, enthusiastic and

talented.

“Even if they haven’t had

experience in it before they work

really hard at being good at it and

trying their best,” she said.

Elf The Musical JR will be

performed at Rolleston College’s

auditorium this Wednesday,

Thursday and Friday with doors

opening at 6.30pm. Tickets

are available from the school’s

admin desk.

SUCCESS: Lucy Adams, daughter of Selwyn MP Amy

Adams, received a Young Totara Award from Rotary New

Zealand. Each Rotary district seeks out young people who

display strength of character, courage of conviction, care

of community and pursuit of excellence. It believes that by

recognising individuals such as Lucy, they can encourage

positive role modes for growing generations. St Margaret’s

College student Lucy received the award for the service work

she did as part of her gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. ​

Get to know Ellesmere College’s head girl

Ellesmere College has

announced its new

leadership team for next

year with Fylgia Romero

taking the role as head

girl. She spoke to year 13

student and chief editor

of the school’s magazine

Nicole Ashby

What made you decide to

apply for head student?

I have a real passion for leading

which has arisen from being

involved in leadership roles at my

youth group outside of school. I

was also really inspired by former

head student Sam Bright’s speech

as he showed that you don’t have

to be super popular or academic

to be great and a great leader. I

am inspired to lead and I believe

I am a natural leader and I can’t

wait to use this to help younger

people in the school.

What are some things you

want to implement at Ellesmere

College?

I want to put a real focus on

equality and diversity and I believe

the head student group next

year is going to be great at this. I

have previously been a part of the

well being team and through this

I have also gained a passion for

promoting anti-bullying and believe

that we should also promote

equality for all differences not

just in race.

BIG PLANS: Ellesmere College’s head girl for next year Fylgia

Romero plans to focus on equality and diversity in her new role. ​

What qualities do you think a

great leader needs?

They should be passionate,

which also branches to determination,

patience, hard work and

honesty. Also having the drive to

help others.

What qualities do you have

that will make you a great leader

of Ellesmere College?

I am not afraid to cross lines

and see the difference between

morals and law and the fact that

the law is not always right. I intend

to look beyond what is right

in front of me and work with that

as well as passion to be the best

leader I can be.

What are some of your hobbies

and passions? And how will

these help influence your role as

a head student?

I am a part of youth group

that has given me ample opportunities

for public speaking

as we travel around to other

youth groups. It is important for

a leader to speak in front of the

public and address important

topics. I have a real passion for

music and like leadership you

have to pour your whole heart

into it. I believe you should pour

your whole heart into everything

that you do.

Where do you see yourself

heading in the future?

I have two options. The first is

to go to Otago to study medicine

and if that doesn’t work out then

plan B is to study nursing at Ara

Institute of Canterbury. Biology

SCHOOLS

is my favourite subject as I find

human life fascinating as well as

being able to help people in need.

How do you plan to manage

your time with school, head

student duties and your other

passions?

Time management. Experiences

in youth group has helped

me to manage my time. I will

aim to prioritise my time and

what is left to the side I will not

just abandon it, I will make sure

there is an alternative rather than

just leaving it.

With the team that has been

put together for next year (head

student Iain Wright, deputy

head students Pip Prendergast

and Matt Riches), what unique

quality do you think everyone

will bring to the team to make it

the best it can be?

Pip has always been very

respectful and one word I would

describe her as being is genuine.

She has always worked really

hard and I know she will do so

in the head student team as well.

Both of the boys, Iain and Matt,

work really hard and are determined

to do the best they can in

their respective roles. Iain is kind

and doesn’t follow others and

this will be key for being a head

student.

Lincoln’s head students earn role

SCHOOLS

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LINCOLN HIGH School has

named its new head students for

next year.

Petra Campbell and Gabriel

Clarke will step into the role as

head girl and boy respectively,

with Taylin Smith and Carlito

Shalfoon as their deputies.

The new student leadership

team was named after the top

eight applicants for the role were

put through a three-month selection

process.

The top eight students created

posters to advertise themselves

around the school before they

attended a “Head 2 Head”

workshop to undertake problemsolving

activities.

They were then required to

work alongside the school management

team, the junior council

and police to run the school’s

Junior Black Light Dance.

Assistant principal Kylie Wissel

said it was an opportunity to

observe how different applicants

responded and interacted with

junior students.

The students then attended

the Delta Community Support

Trust’s disco evening, which

aimed to help people experiencing

personal hardship, disability,

TOP OF CLASS: (Back left) – New head girl Petra Campbell, current head girl Libby Trevelyan, Fletcher Allan, Carlito Shalfoon,

isolation or other disadvantages.

Mrs Wissel said the environment

challenged students to step

out of their comfort zones and

engage with a community group.

“Anybody can sit and bluff

their way through an interview,

but they can’t bluff their way

through working (with) intellectually

disabled people,” she said.

The top eight students then

performed a speech to year 9-12

students about their vision for

the school. The entire school,

including students and staff, then

voted for their preferred head

students.

Mrs Wissel said it was an

eye-opening experience for the

students to find out what being a

head student was about and the

expectations that come with it.

“No selection process is ever

perfect, but it does give us a very

strong indication as to where our

strengths are going to be,” she

said.

She said the students were

blown away by how their perception

of leadership changed

through the process.

CHALLENGE: The head

student applicants took

part in the “Head 2 Head”

workshop as part of the

selection process.

Steven Henderson

Giving up an international hairdressing

CAPTIVATING LIFE: Steven Henderson once had an

international hairdressing career working for worldrenowned

company KMS Hair before he gave it all away to

become a teacher. PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

Ellesmere College teacher

Steven Henderson spends

his days teaching art and

helping his students reach

their full potential. But

before he was a teacher, Mr

Henderson led a successful

career in the hairdressing

industry. He spoke to

Georgia O’Connor-Harding

How did your career start out?

I had a hairdressing salon here

some years ago. So I started off

as a hairdresser and I did hair

and make-up for stylists on

photoshoots before I won southern

stylist and male stylist of the year

for the Schwarzkopf professional

hair expo awards in the 90s. I

was asked to do a hairdressing

symposium show in Auckland

the very next week, which I did,

and then I met an international

distributing manager for

international company KMS Hair.

The next week, I was doing a show

for 5000 people. The career I had

as an artist and director started

that way.

When did you become involved

in art?

My career started off as a hairdresser

but I started painting and

doing art work. I always sold it

in design stores with beautiful

furniture in Canterbury. In hairdressing,

I travelled all through

South Africa, America, Australia

and New Zealand. I was awarded

international artist of the year

in South Africa in the late 90s. I

toured Australia with KMS Hair.

I would always fly to Los Angeles

normally or Sydney for photoshoots.

I would fly there and they

would have agency models. The

$10,000-a-day girls. We would

style them. And then a month

later, I would be driving through

Los Angeles and see my work on

a billboard. While I was there, I

came up with concepts for KMS.

When I first got there, I told them

you need to make a product called

sea salt spray mixed with salt and

silicon. I took them a product selling

well in New Zealand; said this

is popular down under but this is

what is wrong with it. It became a

No 1 seller.

What was it like seeing your

work on a billboard?

For the first time it was surreal.

In America, it was really interesting.

I went to hairdressing symposium

shows where there were

thousands of people in the audience

and I had to have security

because Americans are fanatic and

they all wanted to see the Kiwi. I

got up and would show my work

and images behind me with massive

big screens. I remember one

time hopping off the stage thinking

‘I could just walk out with the

crowd’ – typical Kiwi mentality.

Then the crowd turned on me and

pinned me against the stage and

the security had to pull me out. I

suddenly realised then the level of

craziness the people were – how

they instantly idolise you if you

are from somewhere else or doing

something interesting. I was one

of the few hairdressers to have

my work published in magazine

American Salon. It was unheard of

in New Zealand to get that.

It must have been a crazy

experience being swarmed by

people?

It was really weird. One of the

weirdest moments was when I

was with a girlfriend of mine in

Christchurch. She worked for the

company at KMS Hair. We were

hanging out together and we were

asked to go up to this suite. The

man was a big distributor for KMS

in America. He said come up to

my room and have a few drinks. I

was with this lady and said ‘sure I

would love to’ being the Kiwi way.

Then it became really weird and

he was idolising me. I started to

realise the profile I was starting to

get in America. I got to do photoshoots

with Elle magazine and

Vogue magazine.

Our pre-Christmas exhibition is once again an allwoman

gathering of multi-media artists. Whimsical

takes on personal themes, each of these artists

serve us their ‘Signature Dish’.

The exhibition runs for three weeks finishing

18th of December, giving plenty of time to wrap a

Christmas gift for someone very special.

Lisa Grennell’s work is whimsical, much like a

child’s imagination. Designed to make the viewer

smile and think of their own childhood,

whilst questioning contemporary society

and its impact on the environment. ‘The

Simple Life’ is inspiration for this new

work.

Blanche Fryer’s work for this exhibition

has been inspired by the anthropomorphic

interpretation of the inner life of fish.

“We hear of horse whisperers, canine

communicators, mammal channelling,

but you never hear of a yarn with a fish, excepting

if there is a hook on the end. It has been really

enjoyable creating these characters and also

playing with a few different glazes.”

Jane Downes pieces ‘Dwell’, a continuation of her

body of work ‘Shelter’. Designed almost completely

for function and the upholding of cultural values,

offering shelter, protection and observation. These

works are also an exploration of form, pattern,

scale and light, extending the work through the

formation of shadows.

Kara Burrowes explains her rationale – “I’m drawn

to the layers and history of the urban environment;

exposed walls, discarded objects. Often it’s the

banal and mundane that sparks an idea, the

concept of transforming something quite ordinary

into something precious and alluring.”

Blanche Fryer’s anthropomorphic interpretation

of the inner life of fish.

Amy Hoedemakers, “I used sketches from walking

down the riverbed and words to begin with or

as reference points. I wanted my work to have

the feeling of looking into another world, of it

stretching on, almost as though you could step into

it but having an abstract quality at the same time.

Predominantly I’m inspired by the natural world,

painted in a mixture of sizes and formats in oils.”

career to inspire high school artists

I styled advertisements for

those magazines and their

billboards.

It must have been huge for

you having an influence in the

fashion industry?

I didn’t realise at the time. I just

did it. That whole Kiwi mentality.

It was not until I gave it all away

because I wanted to. I loved it

but then the passion disappeared.

Because you are up against people,

there is a lot of tall-poppy

syndrome.

Was that what made you

decide you had enough?

At times, I got glimpses of what

it must be like to be a celebrity.

Towards the end, I thought I

am not sure I want this. I had

always wanted to be a creative

director globally. Finally, the job

was offered to me heading up

an agency for Sabre Corporation

and I said no.

How did you come to be a

teacher at Ellesmere College?

About 15 years ago, I became

disheartened with the work I was

doing. I had not lost the love of

the craft, rather I became tired

of dealing with the public. At

that time, I had taken to producing

art works as a creative

outlet, at the time it was purely

for me. An artist friend saw my

work and talked me into a joint

STYLE: One of the

winning images for

the Schwarzkopf

professional hair expo

awards which named

Steven Henderson

southern stylist of the

year.

art exhibition. Reluctantly, I

agreed and produced several

works which sold. I felt like

somewhat of a fraud as I did

not have any training or, at that

time, a degree in art. So began

the journey of acquiring an arts

degree. When I completed this,

it seemed natural to me to gain

a post-grad in secondary school

education, which I did. Teaching

came naturally. My first teaching

job was in a small Northland

school made up of predominately

Maori students. My partner and

I had moved to Northland from

Christchurch to develop a 15 acre

(6ha) water-front peninsular we

had bought several years earlier.

However, we did not love the far

north, we missed Canterbury.

Ellesmere College was near by

and it was my intention to work

part-time. After one year, because

of vacancies, I had become fulltime

teaching an array of subjects.

Tell

me about your

love for gardening?

We bought a heritage property,

which was 150-years-old, which

came with a very overgrown

garden and so it has taken a lot

of my time to try to bring that

garden back; to reinvent it. The

Ellesmere Garden Tour is coming

up – it is the first time

the house is being seen. It

hasn’t ever been opened

to the public.

What is the name of

the heritage property?

Thornycroft in

Brookside. Brookside is

named after the Brooks

family and it’s actually

their original homestead.

The earthquakes happened

and we felt compelled

to move back to

Christchurch. My partner

and I came back and our

house was ruined in town.

This house just happened

to be for sale. We drove up

the driveway and it was

love at first site.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in a small town

called Ngongotaha (Bay

of Plenty) with a family

of nine brothers and four

sisters and a solo mum. I

went to a rugby school. Can

you imagine me coming

out of that. Creativity was

hushed up. I came out of Western

Heights High School.

How did you cope?

You were most certainly ostracised.

As a young boy, my saviour

was finding like-minded creative

people. I never found it in my

school, I was horribly bullied. As

soon as I could leave I fled that

high school. I left at 15 and went

off to the big city and held down

three jobs. One was a hairdressing

apprenticeship at Blitz Hair

Design. I worked at a nursery

and I worked in a hotel lugging

suitcases for Chinese tourists. I

set up my first hairdressing salon

in Rotorua called Ragged in the

80s, which was incredibly successful.

Then I went to Auckland

before coming to Christchurch.

How are you finding teaching

at Ellesmere College?

I teach some of the art programme.

I teach tourism and

my absolute all-time favourite –

teaching those kids who struggle

with their learning.

What is the one lesson you

pass onto your students?

I was once asked what makes

you so successful and I went,

being able to laugh at it. Getting a

laugh out of the day and not taking

it too seriously. For those kids

who don’t have much, who have

been bullied – I am that perfect

teacher who can actually connect

with them. I have experienced

the poverty of being in a big family

with a single mother. I had

experienced extreme bullying

because I am a gay man. I have

experienced discrimination.

Perawai Hurunui – I agree

that is so wrong and, yes, I hope

they get their punishment but for

those who are saying an eye for

as the bullies. What is the lesson

there if you give them the same

treatment as what they gave that

boy, you’re saying it’s okay to do

that.

Vanya Cheri – You know

what . . . an eye for an eye I say.

Will teach thugs a lesson and

they will know how it felt for

their victim.

Hamish Middleton – If they

are youth they should all get a

minimum of six months home

detention with curfews, non

association with each other.

Robyn Rodgers – Just

unbelievably disgusting – name

and shame.

Suzi de Gouveia – Good.

Now get them and teach them

how they were wrong – obviously

not been taught yet.

Jenna Birchfield – What is

wrong with some people.

Ann Carey – I really hope you

catch these thugs and name and

shame them. It is not acceptable

on any level.

Terry Diane Kennedy – All

they will get is a stern warning

and told not to do it again.

Margaret Colgan

– Attempted murder comes to

mind for what they should be

charged with.

Sally King – Good, now do

something other than a smack on

hand about it. Bunch of thugs –

age makes no difference.

forewings with darker brown

wing tips.

They produce two to

three generations in a year,

depending on climate. Females

lay eggs between six to 10 days

after emerging from pupae,

with as many as 170 eggs laid

in one session and as many as

1500 eggs in their lifetime.

Dependent on local

temperature, eggs hatch after

about 30 days. Larvae are

yellow-green, with light brown

heads, while older caterpillars

have darker green stripes along

the body and can reach 18 mm

in length.

Larvae can cause significant

damage to developing buds,

leaves and fruit, especially in

apples, requiring insecticide

application in most

commercial orchards.

Natural enemies include

parasitic flies and wasps that

inject eggs onto or into the

LBAM larvae, eventually

killing them and reducing their

damage.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Coster wins national title at Canty Show

FORMER national

representative shearer and

multiple all-breeds champion

Tony Coster reckoned he only

shore in the New Zealand

corriedale championship to get

out of doing a job.

But trading the job he says he

would have otherwise been doing

produced unexpected results

for the now 50-year-old Rakaia

veteran. He beat world champion

John Kirkpatrick by more than a

minute in a six-man final to win

the Canterbury Show feature for

a third time.

“I’m on the committee, or at

least I help run a few things,” he

said. “If I hadn’t shorn I would

have had a few jobs to do.”

It was only his second competition

this season, having made

an appearance at Ashburton

last month only because he was

there with wife, Sheryl, who was

“doing the points”. He reckons it’s

his last dig on the competition

board until the Methven show

in March, probably only because

the wife is again mastering the

event’s complex scoring system.

Shearing on stand six, which

in the show pavilion brings the

spectators as close to the stand

as they possibly can without

having to shear the sheep as well,

Coster had it good, he said. “A

FLEECED: Rakaia shearer Tony Coster won the New Zealand

corriedale championships open title at the Canterbury Show

for a third time.

good pen,” he said in a shearer’s

assessment of sheep anyone with

a swinging arm and a handpiece

would like to peel away.

Previously winning in 2007

and 2013, Coster shore the dozen

coarse wool sheep in 18min

33.63sec, with Kirkpatrick finishing

next in 19min 39.27sec.

The time-points advantage,

along with second-best combined

board and pen points, was

something no one else was able

to overcome. Coster eventually

claimed the win by a comfortable

margin of almost five points

from defending champion Nathan

Stratford, of Invercargill.

Kirkpatrick had to settle for

third, and fourth was Mataura

shearer Brett Roberts, who had

the best combined points on the

board and in the pens.

Cutting back on the competitions

hasn’t meant cutting back

on the shearing for Coster, who

also runs a courier van. He said

he’d just come off the lambshear,

and his fitness was “pretty good”.

“It’s that you just don’t really

have quite that confidence

against the guys that are shearing

competitions all the time,” he

said, especially with world teams

champions, Stratford and Kirkpatrick,

having been in action on

a weekly basis since the season

started at the beginning of last

month.

Coster’s “retirement” simply

means retreating from the same

schedule.

He didn’t enter the PGG

Wrightson Wool National

Circuit for first time in more

than 20 years, during which he

has won the series four times.

“I think since even before PGG

Wrightson became the sponsors,”

he said, reflecting on his years in

the series which ends with a final

each year at the Golden Shears

and which originated with the

first presentation of the McSkimming

Memorial Triple Crown in

1973.

Series leader Tory Pyper, of

Winton, was unable to be at the

Canterbury Show, but had already

guaranteed a top-12 place

for the March showdown after

strong performances in heats

at Alexandra (fine wool) and

Waimate (strong wool).

Top series and also probable

finals-qualifying points went to

Ringakaha Paewai, of Gore, and

Ethan Pankhurst, of Masterton,

who were first and second in

the heats, which had 24 shearers

chasing the Canterbury title.

There was a significant upset

in the blade shearing final with

2010 New Zealand world championships

representative Allen

Gemmell, of North Canterbury,

ending the run of Fairlie farmer

Tony Dobbs, who had been unbeaten

in the event since coming

out of retirement from competition

in 2013. Gemmell had won

once previously, 17 years ago.

South Island-based Chilean

world championships

representative, Luis Pincol, had

his biggest win, after a string of

minor-show triumphs.

He took out the senior final

by more than six points ahead

of Taumarunui shearer Lionel

Taumata, who was first to finish

in a little over 14min for six

sheep.

Selwyn District Council, Police and the Licenced premises across the district are participating in

the Christmas/New Year annual drink drive campaign, encouraging everyone to sort a safe ride

home before going out for a few drinks this summer.

Drink driving puts everyone at risk of being injured or killed in a road crash that could have

been avoided.

In the Selwyn district between 2012 and 2016, there were over 150 crashes where alcohol was

involved. These crashes resulted in eight fatalities and 40 people receiving serious injuries. In

addition, many minor crashes resulted in people receiving injuries, as well as damage to vehicles

and properties.

In many cases when drivers are affected by alcohol, inappropriate speed and failure to wear a

safety belt also contributes to the severity of the crash. Not surprisingly, these types of crashes

occur between Friday evening and Sunday morning.

This year’s campaign encourages drivers to think about sorting their ride home before going out.

Safe options include organising a sober driver or using the courtesy van. We can all do our bit by

discouraging friends from driving if they have been drinking.

As part of the campaign, posters, coasters and bar mats will be distributed to hotels, taverns, sport

clubs and other licenced premises in the Selwyn District in late November and early December.

Selwyn District Council Road Safety Coordinator Ngaire Tinning commends the work done by

local hotels and taverns to keep patrons safe.

“Each year as part of our road safety campaign, we distribute free resources to licenced premises

to encourage and support their host responsibility activities and we appreciate them coming on

board with our promotion.”

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills encourages everyone drinking alcohol when socialising to take

advantage of the services offered by these local businesses.

“Many responsible premises across the district offer courtesy vans, we recommend everyone to

use these if they have not organised other safe means to get home,” says Senior Sergeant Stills.

Although many people believe drink drivers are less likely to be stopped by police when they

drive on rural back roads, this is not the case. Canterbury Police will be carrying out more random

patrols on all Selwyn roads over the Christmas/New Year holiday season. The booze bus will be

deployed in both rural and urban areas.

This year’s campaign is a simple and effective message which we can all share and encourage

others to do so too.

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads this week

Reseals will be carried out on McHugh Crescent, Stott Drive and Curve Road.

Digout repairs will be carried out on Hororata Road. Shoulder works will be

occurring on Dalethorpe Road. Ford reinstatement will be carried out on Essedon

Ford Waireka Ford and Homebush Ford.

Traffic controls will be operating.

Stabilised seal repairs are occurring on Mitchells Road, Leaches Road, Sharlands Road and Ardlui

Road. Please stop on request at these sites.

Berm and footpath work will be occurring on Russel Street and Petticoat Lane. These footpaths will

be closed.

Kerb and channel works, footpath and KEA crossing construction will be occurring on Weedons Ross

Selwyn sister city opportunities

Selwyn District Council and the Malvern Community Board are

encouraging residents to get involved in sister cities projects over

the coming year.

Selwyn has five international sister city relationships with

opportunities for Selwyn residents to be involved in China, Japan,

Indonesia and the USA.

In September 2018 a group of residents from Selwyn, led by Mayor

Sam Broughton, will visit Shandan at the time of the opening of the

new Shandan Bailie Vocational College. The college will cater for

2000 students from throughout China.

A second sister city relationship Selwyn has is with the Japanese

area of Akitakata, near Hiroshima. Sister City Committee Chair

Allison Rosanowski says the relationship was originally with

Takamiya, a beautiful rural area, which is now part of the larger

Akitakata amalgamated council district.

“In late September and early October, there’s a wonderful

opportunity for Selwyn residents to join a Darfield High School

group travelling to Akitakata,” she says. “Highlights include visiting

the Peace Park at Hiroshima, the shrines on Miyajima Island,

traditional houses and spend time exploring soya bean, rice and

nashi pear farms. Part of the time will be spent in homestays.”

In conjunction with the Akitakata visit, the group can travel to the

Malvern Community Board’s sister city, Yebetsu, Japan. Yebetsu

is located on the northern shores of Hokkaido, the northernmost

island of Japan.

From late August next year the Selwyn Sister City Committee is

seeking volunteers to travel to Toraja in the highlands of Sulawesi,

in Indonesia. “Selwyn is the first council in New Zealand to have a

sister city relationship in Indonesia,” Mrs Rosanowski says.

The fifth sister city is in Coventry, Rhode Island, USA. This is a

picturesque historic area of the USA.

All Selwyn sister city groups travel at their own expense and usually

host incoming groups. Sister city trips give participants a different

experience from tourist travel as there are opportunities to interact

with local people. All trips are limited to adults aged 18 years and

older. An information evening will be held in early 2018.

To learn more about sister city opportunities or join the Sister City

Committee, email Bernadette Ryan at Bernadette.Ryan@selwyn.govt.nz.

Twitter’s quake research role

Fire rages, homes at risk

Student

analysing

emotional

reactions

• By Bridget Rutherford

EARTHQUAKE-related Twitter

posts are being analysed to

provide a new way of gauging

how people are coping, and

whether they need more support.

Lincoln University PhD student

Prerita Gupta is developing

a recognition algorithm to identify

emotions based on keywords

in tweets from 2010-2016.

So far, she has collected more

than 250,000 tweets as part of

the research, which is expected

to take up to two years.

The Complex Systems, Big

Data and Informatics Initiative

student said people experiencing

upheavals often turned to social

media to express their feelings,

especially Twitter.

She decided to research how

people reacted emotionally online

when earthquakes struck.

“I thought it would be interesting

to know which emotions they

RESEARCH: Lincoln University student Prerita Gupta is

capturing earthquake emotion through Twitter research.

have gone through and to know

the trend of emotions when they

feel minor or major disasters.”

The algorithm gauges intense

reactions from people, and how

they are coping. An example is

a tweet such as “Sharp lil jolt felt

in this morning!!!. Forgot how

much I hate them.’’

Ms Gupta said the tool could

be used by psychologists as a

new way of gauging emotional

states. She said it could be used

as a decision-making tool to

understand the collective state of

a group affected, and to provide

them better support or assistance.

The data had geographical

locations, so they could see what

area was impacted the most, she

said.

“This information is very

useful for health providers in

examining the relationship

between emotions and the use

of anti-depressant medicines,

helpful for the Government to

plan which affected area needs

the maximum health benefit and

for social welfare departments to

understand the level of support

they should provide to the

affected party.”

Ms Gupta said traditional

approaches such as interviews or

surveys may not be the best way

to collect data, as it reminded

people of the experience and

could be traumatising.

Analysing Twitter posts was

non-intrusive, she said.

The Ministry of Health is also

investigating whether Facebook

or Twitter posts about illnesses

or symptoms could be tracked

to see if there is a trend in a

particular area.

It was also looking at whether

school absentees, employee

sick leave, over-the-counter

pharmacy sales, tissue sales or

Healthline calls could be utilised

in preventing the spread of

illnesses.

tractors, steam engines and interesting

displays, as well as market and food stalls.

The first of its kind for the district, this

event has attracted considerable interest

with over 200 show vehicles registered so

far. Motor vehicles on display will range

from a 1914 Model T to late model cars

like a 2014 Corvette and 2017 Lotus 7.

The Ellesmere Vintage Club, Vintage

Speedway and RATEC Motorsport will

be there, while the Canterbury Mustang

Club are making this day an official club

event.

“The grounds look fantastic with the

grass cut and baled for seating. There’ll

be something for everyone with a great

show of motor vehicles and wide variety

of stalls and entertainment throughout

the day,” says Selwyn District Councillor

Craig Watson who is on the organising

committee.

Craig says the event will be a fete

with a motor focus, cool activities and

displays. Local emergency services

including St John ambulances; vintage

and car clubs; rally cars; the New

Zealand Trucking Association; the

Selwyn District Council; Residents’

Association; Selwyn Parenting

Network; and other community

groups will be present. There will be

plenty for the children too, with a

Bunnings Warehouse construction

display, bouncy castles, face painting,

pony rides, steam engine rides and

more.

Thirty plus market stalls will

offer something for everyone, from

motoring paraphernalia to children’s

clothing and Tupperware, with an

additional 15 food stalls and four

coffee vendors providing a range of

cuisine.

Shed 24 and Lee Martin after strolling

Supporting St John

The Selwyn Central St John branch has

responsibility for raising $150,000 towards

their local operation. All money from the

Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motor Fest and

Family Fun Day will go to supporting

the Leeston and Rolleston stations,

ambulances and vital services offered by

St John throughout a district that covers a

considerable geographic area.

Local business

supports local

community

When Nigel and Lisa Fleck heard about

plans for a motor fest they were keen to

get involved, leading to Jones Road Auto

becoming major sponsor for the event.

With a shared interest in cars and both

Nigel and Lisa driving their own classic cars,

the idea of holding a family oriented motor

fest in Selwyn appealed, especially as it is a

fundraiser for St John.

“With it being a family event and fundraiser

for such a good cause, it was important for us

to be involved,” says Lisa who with Nigel own

and operate Jones Road Auto and Selwyn

Auto.

“Participation in this event allows us to give

something back to the community especially

when St John helps so many people.”

You will be able to chat to the team from

Jones Road Auto and Selwyn Auto at the

Splendidly unique furnishings in Rolleston

A diversified retail precinct is emerging

in Rolleston with boutique quality products

and services like Nevara Fine Interiors,

which recently opened at South Point in

Faringdon.

Owned and operated by international

interior designer, Barbara Pritchard,

Nevara Fine Interiors opened its doors

just four weeks ago and already a stream

of people have been popping in to discover

the interesting and unique quality furniture

and furnishing accessories available in

store.

After forty years living and working

overseas in countries such as Korea,

Thailand, Hong Kong and Hawaii, Barbara

and her husband recently moved back to

New Zealand, settling in Rolleston.

During her time abroad, Barbara became

interested in interior design and was taken

under the wing of a world leading designer

who trained her in the finer points of home

décor.

When Barbara moved to Hawaii, she

set up a business as an interior designer

and home furnishings store. Her clientele

included many rich and famous people

while the work she carried out was diverse

in terms of style and project budget.

On many occasions, it involved totally

remodelling a home, taking it right back to

the frame then rebuilding it to suit the

client’s needs, wishes and budget.

On returning to New Zealand, Barbara

missed the active life of running a

successful business so earlier this year she

decided to open Nevara Fine Interiors, a

boutique store where almost everything is

one of a kind.

SELWYN TIMES

Barbara has amassed a diverse and

appealing range of local and imported

items which set Nevara Fine Interiors apart

from other stores, providing the people of

Selwyn and beyond with unique items that

would be hard to find elsewhere.

In store there is currently a wonderful

selection of table lamps, accent pieces

including altar tables, coffee and end tables,

occasional chairs, giant pots, cushions, art,

handmade jewellery and other interesting

artefacts. Particular items of interest include

a beautiful day bed, bronze frog drums, and

some really unique antique pieces such as

jade, horses, fishes and elephants including

a Chinese ginger jar that dates back around

125 years old.

For Christmas, Barbara goes all out and

is promising a great range of decorations

for sale, including delightful elves she

personally makes by hand. Standing 40cm

tall, these elves are individual making them

an especially charming decoration or gift

for someone who just loves Christmas.

Barbara is also available as an Interior

Designer if you require assistance in

designing the furnishings for your home or

commercial premises.

Nevara Fine Interiors can be found in

the South Point shopping centre at 3/51

Faringdon Boulevard, in the Faringdon

one subdivision, east of Rolleston. Just

look for the red and gold sail featuring

the Naga mythical dragon logo.

Nevara Fine Interiors is open 10am

until 5pm weekdays, and 10am until 3pm

on Saturdays and check out Nevara Ltd

Increased water storage

& pumping capacity

With the dry conditions typical on the

Canterbury Plains over summer, water

becomes a precious commodity especially

when there are watering restrictions and

many on lifestyle blocks and tracts of land

face the prospect of running out of water.

Low or no water concerns can be alleviated

by increasing the household or farm’s water

storage and pumping capacity. Experts in

the field, Pumps & Filters can advise you on

what is best for your property, then supply

and install the tanks and apparatus needed

to ‘beef up’ your water supply system.

Pumps & Filters have just launched a new

range of solar powered bore pumps and

offer a complete package deal that includes

the bore pump, motor, controls and solar

powered panel, along with installation.

These solar powered systems complement

their wide range of water storage and

pumping products and services.

They design, manufacture, install,

maintain and repair pumps and filters,

taking care of any part of a business or

household’s water needs whether it is a

small unit or a heavy duty pumping system

for a business, farm or lifestyle block.

If increasing water storage capacity is a

priority, Pumps & Filters can supply and

install tanks from 425 to 30,000 litres (in a

range of colours) with full installation tank

pads that meet manufacturer specifications.

“We recommend 25,000 or 30,000 litre

tanks for lifestyle blocks. A tank around

this size will give an average family around

five to six weeks back-up water storage,”

says Jason Marshall, Branch Manager of

Pumps & Filters Ltd.

Pumps & Filters offer a turnkey package.

This includes drilling water bores, supplying

and installing bore pumps and storage

tanks, and supplying house pumps. They

also install water filtration and purification

systems such as PH neutralisers, water

softeners, UV and reverse osmosis and test

water.

If needing a new pump on an existing

tank, Pumps & Filters can help with this too,

providing the latest variable speed pressure

system that will boost your water supply.

They also carry energy saving pumps.

Pumps & Filters service residential,

commercial and industrial customers

throughout Canterbury, travelling to

customers around Selwyn.

This local company with local people

will quote on-site then deliver a fast and

efficient service.

Farmers reminded to

watch irrigator aim

With irrigation season underway,

Environment Canterbury is reminding

irrigators to be aware of where their water

is going and irrigate the grass, not the road.

Environment Canterbury principal

resource management advisor Richard

Purdon said several complaints have

already been received so irrigators need to

adjust their aim.

“Irrigation onto roads, particularly gravel

roads, is not only a waste of water but also

has the potential to create safety issues for

motorists.

“It is the surprise element and the force of

the water that could easily startle a motorist,

it is especially dangerous for those on

motorcycles. Our staff have been receiving

an increasing number of calls, especially in

our Ashburton office, and our locally based

water zone officers will be responding to

these on a case-by-case basis,” Mr Purdon

said.

Irrigation consent holders are responsible

for the use of water that is applied to their

properties, he said.

“Resource consent conditions authorise

the use of water to a consented piece of land,

not to run to waste. While we understand it

can be difficult on windy days, it is still a

breach of their consent.

“Irrigation system operators must

monitor the use of their water and

equipment to make sure the water is used

in the way that was authorised and not

wasted.”

Irrigation New Zealand chief executive

Andrew Curtis said the two main culprits

for water going over-boundary were the

end guns on pivot irrigators and travelling

irrigators set up too close to roads.

“Watering onto roads creates a significant

safety hazard, so it’s really important for

irrigators to ensure they water within their

property boundaries.

“My advice is to ensure end guns are

set and operating correctly and regularly

checked. When you set up your travelling

irrigator always have a set-back distance

from the road,” he said.

“Aside from the safety issue, people don’t

like seeing water being wasted by being

sprayed onto roads. Farmers who irrigate

do so under strict regulatory regimes so it’s

important they justify their use of water by

being efficient and responsible with it.”

Anyone experiencing

spray on the road

that is clearly coming

from an irrigation

system should

contact Environment

Canterbury on

0800 324 636. If there

is immediate danger to

road users they should

contact the police.

Plenty for families to enjoy

at annual A&P show

The annual Courtenay A&P Show is set

to showcase the best of the Selwyn District’s

rural productivity this Friday and Saturday,

November 24-25, and will be the 142nd

year for the popular event.

Every year, the Courtenay A&P

Association’s president chooses the theme

for the show, and for 2017 president Ashley

Seaton has chosen ‘sustainable farming’,

with all the exhibitors in the big marquee

displaying products representing this

theme.

Visitors will see the latest in farm

equipment and machinery on show at the

trade sites.

The stock, and grain and seed

competitions will again be fierce as farmers

hope their entries will get the nod from the

judges in reward for all their hard work.

Those that have entered the produce,

baking, handcrafts and photography

competitions will also be hoping for good

results in their class, with the public having

the chance to view all the entries.

Saturday will be a real family day out at

the Show, with plenty of entertainment

including the Clown Lolytwist and the

Pedalmania bikes, which can carry up to

five riders and will be available for free

rides. There will also be craft stalls and food

sites, wood-chopping, vintage car displays,

rides and sideshows.

Of course, the animals are always a

highlight of the Show. The children will

love the interactive activities in the Arion

Farm Park where they can hold and pet the

baby animals such as lambs and rabbits.

Horses will again be a key feature, with

keen riders competing in the various events

and classes. A spectacular event in the ring

will see the stock and station horses being

put through their paces on the obstacle

course, while the harness horses and ponies

will also keep the crowds entertained. The

dog trial finals will take place in the main

ring just before the Grand Parade.

Also taking place in the ring to much

hilarity will be the terrier race – anyone can

bring their terrier to the show and enter the

race on the day.

Mingling with the crowds will be special

guests, local MP Amy Adams and Selwyn

District Mayor Sam Broughton and his wife

Liz.

The Courtenay A&P Show is being

held at the Kirwee Showgrounds with

the public expected to start arriving

on Saturday from about 9.30am.

Friday and Saturday,

November 24-25, and will

be the 142nd year for the

gardening without guesswork

Question:

Can you please tell me what is wrong with my

Pittosporum? Most of the leaves are fine, there are

just a few with this dirty-brown marking on them.

From the photos the

Answer: problem could be an

insect (psyllid) that

attacks the leaves of the pittosporum causing the

type of damage that the photos show. These insects

are usually found on the underside of the leaf and

are quite small. These usually only occur on the

young spring growth but may also be present on the

plants throughout the year. If the attack is very heavy

then an insecticide may be needed, but usually the

plant can cope without the need for any treatment.

There are some signs of secondary infection from

the insect damage but I think the plant will grow

through it without any treatment needed.

Pittosporum care

Feed the plant with a balanced slow release fertiliser

in spring. Mulch will help to protect the plants, keep

the weeds away and conserve moisture in the soil.

Pittosporum plants require regular light trimming and

pruning to keep it in shape, size and appearance. Use

sharp scissors to cut off damaged, dying or diseased

branches from the bush.

RADIANT RHODODENDRONS

We are at the time of year where your Rhododendrons will

need fertilising. There are 3 main times to do this, in early

spring, then again immediately after flowering, and then in early

autumn. Rhododendrons are acid loving plants, so they require a

specific fertiliser that cater to this. Intelligro Azalea, Camelia and

Rhododendron fertiliser is great for this. We recommend that

you apply the fertiliser at a rate of 100 grams per square metre

around the dripline of the plant (where the outer

leaves are).

When you apply the fertiliser, be sure to leave a

ring around the trunk of the plant so the fertiliser

doesn’t come in contact with it. After application,

make sure you give it a good water. Unsure how

much 100 grams actually is? An adult handful

is approximately 70 grams. Make sure you follow the directions

properly, over-fertilising can be harmful. Keep up the watering

through the hot months, your plant will thank you for it!

Show homes are a great way to gather

ideas with the latest trends in design,

home features and building materials on

display.

If not sure what to build, a plethora of

house designs can be discovered on the

websites of building companies while

visiting their respective show homes

allows you to visualise how given designs

could work for you and to gain a feel for

the space in given rooms.

Building company representatives will

work with you, adapting a favoured plan

to meet your family’s needs then guiding

you through the building process.

Most companies cover the gamut of

builds though each is likely to have a

particular focus. Talk to their people so

you understand where the company sits

on the spectrum, from highly specified

architecturally designed houses to more

economic family homes.

Look at the finish and quality of the

show home and ask where you can see

other homes the company has constructed.

Ascertain whether the features and fittings

in the show home are their standard or

a step up on what is offered in the basic

package.

Some building companies

have designers. Others prefer

to work with their own library

of plans, adapting a chosen

one rather than starting from

scratch. Enquire as to whether

there is a fee for any concept

drawings, changes to existing

plans or new plans, before

getting too far down the track.

If you cannot find a plan

you like, you might work with

an architectural draftsperson

or architect. When a plan is

finalised, you can then invite

selected building companies

that specialise in the type

of build you are seeking, to

quote.

Once you have all the

information together – the design, cost of

building, build timeframe, and progress

and final payment timeframe – you are in

a position to select a building company.

Until you sign on the dotted line, you are

not committed to a given company and

can walk away though there may be a

charge for any plans drawn up if you do

not proceed.

Remember to compare ‘apples with

apples’. Check that what is quoted is the

same in each case. Changes to fixtures,

fittings and other features can make a

difference to the quoted price with the

variances in quotes being due to disparities

in quality and type of product used.

Before committing to a build, organise

finance based on the features you have

chosen. Remember, each and every

variation will affect the price, usually

upwards. Get this sorted before the build

starts. Most building companies will guide

you through the choice and costing phase.

Once the price is set avoid making

changes to ensure the project keeps within

budget. After all, the last thing you want is

stress over money when moving into your

lovely new home.

Making the most of

show home viewing

Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for

features and fittings to put into a new home. It can also be helpful

for getting a spatial feel for other aspects of a house design.

Before heading out for a day’s

viewing, conduct an internet search.

identify the locations of show home

villages and the types and sizes of the

various building company’s homes on

display, noting down the square metre

size of each home.

if wanting a high end, architectural

design, focus on the larger homes that

have desirable design features. if at the

entry or middle level of the market,

earmark homes that fit this taking in

other show homes for extra ideas.

allow sufficient time when visiting each

show home, asking for a floor plan that

has room sizes before walking through.

Check also the floor to ceiling height

of the rooms and consider how this feels

and whether you prefer a cosier feel with

the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or

more spaciousness created with a higher

stud or exposed ceiling beams.

if doors and windows are taller than

normal, weigh their effect in creating

a more luxurious and spacious feel,

against potential inconvenience for small

children, cleaning and maintenance.

on entering each room, take account of

how much furniture is in each room and

whether there is sufficient space for the

furniture you will have in the room and

the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look

too, at storage capacity throughout the

home and whether this is adequate.

in the living areas, consider whether a

lounge separated from the family living

room or a true open plan kitchen, dining,

living/lounge area is preferable, and

compare internal kitchens with those that

have natural light.

Look too at the layout of

the kitchen: whether to have

an island sink or breakfast

bar where a newspaper can

be read, and children can

sit and draw or complete

homework; the positioning

of appliances; and how

important having a pantry is.

for the little rooms, equate

space and features desired

with that needed, especially

if the budget needs to be

sharp. it might be nice to

have a large walk-in shower

with double shower heads

but is this just fanciful and

will the extra cleaning annoy you long

term. a laundry in the garage is also more

economical though a separate laundry

may be handier.

Bring the garage size into the equation

also. as these vary considerably, assess

the actual measurements of each garage

viewed comparing this with the space

needed for your motor vehicles and other

items to be stored there. if a good number

of toys will be housed there, it may be

sensible to increase the size of this area of

the home.

By imagining what you need, want and

will have in your new home, you will be in

a better position to confidently choose a

design that works for you.
