Fallen trees are a significant

cause of power outages,

particularly during a major

storm. The impact of not having

power can extend far beyond

the inconvenience of being

unable to turn the lights on,

for you and your neighbours.

The power of

being prepared

The key thing is to

ensure that trees are

well within a safe fall

zone of power lines.

Replace or trim

Please consider replacing

very tall trees near power lines

with a lower growing species.

If this isn’t possible, then please

make sure that they are well

maintained with branches

kept away from overhead lines

and poles.

When planting trees near

overhead lines, please be

aware of their growth habit.

A little shrub of a vigorous

growing species can quickly

become a giant tree.

Be safe

If you need to remove or prune

trees near overhead lines,

then please contact us and

we’ll refer you to contractors

experienced in tree trimming

around power lines.

Please remember to stay well

clear of fallen power lines

and trees on power lines.

Be prepared

Following a major storm you

could be without power for

days, or longer. If you require

electricity to run your home

or business please consider

investing in an alternate power

source to cover emergencies,

and the basics like heating

and cooking.

selwyn district residents' guide 2017

From a small railway junction with a hotel and a few

houses, 150 year old Rolleston has grown massively.

Proposed as a satellite to Christchurch in the 1950s, the

idea received little traction at the time. It was mooted again

in the 1970s with some housing built there, then little more

until the 1990s when lifestyle blocks attracted people to

Rolleston.

The Christchurch earthquakes led to increased building

activity with a subsequent population increase. Improved

roads, better amenities and affordable land all contributed

to Rolleston becoming viewed as a feasible option.

With more people came more shops and more recently

more places to dine and socialise, taking away the need to

travel into the city for a night out.

The town has also come of age, with retirement facilities

currently in the planning or construction stage.

Families are well catered for. There are early childcare

centres, primary schools, a new high school, and

community facilities that include an aquatic centre, library,

community centre, playgrounds, a skate park and playing

fields. There is also strong community spirit, and activities

that include: day club; history and embroidery groups;

Lions Club; the Men’s Shed; and sports clubs.

Health and emergency services extend from medical

centres through to dentistry, acupuncture, natural health,

physiotherapy, pharmacies, St John Ambulance, the Police

and a volunteer fire brigade.

Retailing in Rolleston is now diverse. Along with two

supermarkets and The Warehouse are smaller businesses

covering dry-cleaning, banking, fashion, gifts, flowers,

hairdressing, hardware and more. A number of home-based

small businesses also operate within Rolleston and from

lifestyle blocks nearby.

Across the railway lines are two inland ports along with

businesses that provide work opportunities. This along with

the extension of the Southern motorway is likely to lead to

even more people finding Rolleston an attractive town in

which to settle.

• A Mid-Winter’s Ale Festival – 1 July 2017.

• Koru Games (multi-sport for South Island school

children, years 7-8) – 19-21 September 2017.

Shopping in Faringdon

ed

th

Faringdon locals are immensely

pleased to have their new South Point

retail precinct, which opened in April.

The new boutique shopping centre

has over 1,000sqm in floor space and 42

on-site car parks.

It was developed by sisters Jo

Southen, Tania Croucher and Bridget

Foster who grew up in Rolleston. Jo

and Tania still live locally while Bridget

is currently based in England. They all

have a passion for the area and wanted

to provide a retail presence that would

benefit Rolleston as a whole.

“We felt there was a need for an

intimate quality shopping centre,”

explains Jo, something that has been

achieved with an impressive line-up of

tenants, many also Rolleston residents.

For the residents of Faringdon, The

Pedal Pusher will provide a fantastic

selection of snacks and meals for lunch

and dinner, and good beers.

A Pocket Full of Spices food reflects

the heritage of its Indian owners. It

is full of flavoursome rich flavours

providing a place to dine for lunch and

dinner or to pick up a takeaway.

Hooked Fish & Chips is a traditional

English ‘chippie’ and The Selwyn

School of Dance will provide a venue

for local dancers while The Faringdon

Convenience Store and Post Shop will

also provide items and services needed

in this community.

New Order Clothing and Accessories

boutique carries a great range of

recognised labelled garments and

accessories, complementing Barber

Shop Hair 4 Men.

The innovative design of South Point

has given it a point of difference from

many retail precincts. The developers

wanted it to have a community heart;

look attractive from the four roads

it fronts, and have a mix of retail

offerings.

For more information, check out:

South Point Rolleston on Facebook,

amenities

ROLLESTON’S

NEIGHBOURING TOWNs

Also benefitting from having Rolleston nearby are many

farms, lifestyle blocks and towns such as Burnham and

Dunsandel, further to the south.

The numbers of military based at Burnham are due to

increase after 2018 when basic military training and other

operations move from Waiouru to Canterbury. This is likely

to see Rolleston become a busier place. Army personnel

will shop in the town and enjoy its other amenities while

many are also likely to settle there.

Rolleston also benefits from its neighbouring settlements

and towns. This includes Weedons which is a short drive

away. While Weedons has no actual township, its country

club/golf course and domain (the home of cricket in the

area) augment Rolleston’s facilities and its primary school

caters for children who live across the highway and railway

line.

Lincoln’s origins stem from servicing farms which then

evolved when the rural university was established. The

evolution has continued as agriculture businesses and

research centres also made Lincoln home. Its recent

growth is a reflection of its attractiveness, amenities it has

and closeness to Christchurch..

Lincoln’s shopping is more than the basics. Boutique stores

range from those offering organic, healthy or gourmet food

and meat through to designer fashion and giftware. There is

also a large supermarket, accommodation, hardware store,

service station and many services like a library, events

centre, maternity hospital, healthcare and sports facilities;

all a short walk or drive away.

Fondly called the village, there are also cafés, restaurants,

takeaway outlets and bars and the university’s facilities on

offer like the bookshop; sports grounds; netball, squash

and tennis courts; and fully equipped gymnasium.

With high decile schooling (preschool, high school and

university), there is a family feel and sense of community

providing support for its Saturday market, Envirotown Trust

and numerous clubs.

Lincoln’s charm is also in its historic buildings: the Pioneer

Hall (1874), Liffey Cottage (1875), St Stephen’s Anglican

Church (1877), Lincoln University’s Ivey Hall (1881), Union

Parish Church (1882), and Coronation Library (1911). A

plough, made in the town in 1865, is also on show.

Lincoln has established gardens, tall trees and fertile land;

once the shores of Lake Ellesmere (Te Waihora) which was

a food source for Mãori.

Mãori involvement in the area includes working with Lincoln

Lagoon at Little Rakaia, part of the Rakaia

River’s shifting mouth.

leeston

Leeston’s shopping precinct.

Over the last decade, Leeston’s

population has grown with the

Christchurch earthquakes having

quite an impact as people from the city

relocating there.

Many families have a long connection

with the area, their roots in

agriculture. This industry was so

significant that a branch railway line

ran through Leeston, which once

played second fiddle to Southbridge

and Doyleston. Leeston ultimately

overtook these towns and the Selwyn

District Council was based there until

it shifted to Rolleston.

New Zealand’s oldest honey company,

Airborne has a strong historical

connection with Leeston where it

started in 1910 and where it is still

based.

While Leeston still holds its

country charm, it is becoming more

cosmopolitan. It has wider ethnic and

social diversity, and more facilities like

a larger supermarket and construction

of a new hotel.

The town’s entrance is impressive

with its war memorial standing sentry

in the town square, heralding the

business centre that sits behind.

Residents are well provided for, with

shops and services that cover most

household needs. There is a medical

centre, rest home, RSA, fitness centre,

library, toy library, volunteer fire

brigade, and schools from preschool

to high school, along with afterschool

care. There are also a good number of

sports and community interest groups

including the well-known Ellesmere

Big Band.

At the Southbridge end of town,

there are well-utilised sports

fields and facilities including the

rugby clubrooms. This sport has a

strong presence in Leeston and in

neighbouring Southbridge, further

down the road towards Little Rakaia.

Often called Rakaia Huts North, the

seaside town of Little Rakaia sits

beside a lagoon that is part of the

shifting mouth of the Rakaia River.

Killinchy is also nearby where a

cemetery, tennis club, pool and hall

are symbols of a once more populated

countryside, like Sedgemere where

there is a church and hall.

Leeston is close to Lake Ellesmere

(Te Waihora), a lake with a significant

indigenous connection and one that is

popular for recreational activities such

as bird watching, boating, camping,

duck shooting, fishing, kayaking,

picnicking, water-skiing, or cycling

along the Little River rail trail.

Fish were plentiful in Te Waihora when

Maori called there on their way south,

with Maori settling at Taumutu. The

lake’s importance has led to Ngãi Tahu

and Environment Canterbury joining

forces on a widespread cultural and

ecological restoration project for the

Ellesmere area.

Points of interest

are the:

• Leeston’s streets - named after

soldiers lost in World War One.

• Ellesmere A&P Show -

Saturday, 14 October 2017.

Further down the road towards Little Rakaia is Southbridge.

Replica early railway station

Darfield sits in the centre of the

Canterbury Plains, surrounded by farmland

with primary producers contributing to

mainly dairy, sheep and cropping sectors.

Inside its boundaries, Darfield’s residential

base has been growing; its population 1,935

in 2013 was estimated last year to have

risen to 2,957.

On weekdays, the commercial centre

bustles with travellers on their way to the

West Coast, skiiers heading to nearby ski

fields in winter, and locals shopping and

mingling at the local bakery, café, wine bar

or hotel.

Enthusiastic volunteers support a wide

selection of sports and interests such as

ballet, arts, crafts, gardening and a toy

library. There is netball, squash, tennis,

swimming, skateboarding, BMX, cricket,

hockey, indoor and outdoor bowls, running,

fishing; shooting, walking, equestrian

events, rugby with a century old connection

to Malvern, and many more community wide

events. The annual high school production

is well supported and the town’s youth are

catered for with a youth group and sporting

activities.

There are places to walk, like McHugh’s

Plantation or Darfield’s neatly trimmed

streets and the domain for a picnic and

game of cricket or footie.

Discover the town’s history in Tussock

Square, the old gaol, war memorial, replica

early railway station and stone clock tower.

Darfield businesses include seed

processing, brick manufacturing, farm

service outlets and retail stores selling

groceries, meat, pharmaceuticals,

haberdashery and giftware. There is also a

postal service, newsagent, service station,

art gallery, plant nursery and Saturday

morning market. Nearby the Fonterra milk

production factory has also contributed to

the growth of population and supporting

businesses in the area.

Education providers cover all age groups

from preschool to high school along with

community facilities such as churches, a

library, volunteer fire brigade and medical

professionals.

Joining the ranks of the growing towns of

Selwyn is West Melton.

Currently in the middle of a decade of

growth that began with the Gainsborough

housing sub-division, followed by Preston

Downs then Wilfield, the land on which

horses once trained is now filling up with

houses and more urban development is

in the wind. There are also an increasing

number of lifestyle blocks nearby.

Until recently, the service station was

the only, rather busy retail outlet in town.

Now there is a new shopping centre with

a bakery, hair salon, beautician, medical

centre, pharmacy, real estate office, small

supermarket and new bar and restaurant

giving residents another dining experience

to complement the hotel, and café and

winery a short drive away. A myriad of small

home-based businesses are also spread

around the greater West Melton area.

On Saturday mornings, a market is held in

the grounds of St Paul’s Church.

West Melton has a twice daily city bus

service, visiting mobile library, primary

school to year eight, two preschools, play

centre and Plunket rooms, two churches,

an engineering business, community hall,

clubrooms, volunteer fire brigade and

playgrounds. A new recreation centre is to

be built soon.

Even with its growth, West Melton has not

lost its sense of community and friendly

atmosphere with many locals joining

together for numerous sporting activities

and interests. Strongly supported are

rugby and netball followed by tennis, bowls

(indoor and outdoor) and soccer. There are

also pleasant paths on which to walk and

walking groups.

Interest groups include: craft, coffee n

chat; gardening; gymnastics; films; men’s

group; photography; preschool music; rural

women, women’s and youth groups; scouts;

young farmers and Zumba.

Points of interest

are the:

• The Canterbury

Astronomical Society’s

Observatory in Bells

Road which is open to

the public most Fridays

evenings;

• The Canterbury Aero

Club’s aerodrome and

Lakes and Rivers

• Swimming holes may be found in the Selwyn River at:

Coes Ford, Chamberlain’s Ford, Whitecliffs and

Glentunnel though water depth and safety will depend on

the season. Check ECAN’s website.

• The Waimakariri River has some safe water holes. Avoid

the main channel which is generally unsafe for

swimming, as is the case when the river is particularly

high.

• Lake Coleridge and the smaller nearby lakes or those in

the Cass area are generally alpine fed so often quite cold.

In some cases, water quality may not be good.

Water quality ratings are posted on ECAN’s website:

My job as the MP for Selwyn is to represent you in

Parliament and it is a privilege to hold that role.

As your MP, I have worked with many individuals to help

them with difficulties they may be having with Government

agencies such as Work and Income or the Inland Revenue

Department.

I also act as an advocate for local community groups.

This includes listening to community representatives to

determine what our communities want and need, providing

advice on the best way forward and writing letters of support.

Some of the local projects that I have advocated for in the

past few years include road safety improvements around

Selwyn, the Akaroa marine reserve and new schools for

Rolleston and Lincoln.

If I can be of help to you or you wish to pass on your views,

please do get in touch. I hold regular coffee meetings at local

cafes around Selwyn. These meetings are an opportunity

for Selwyn residents to pop in and meet me in an informal

setting to discuss any matters they would like to bring to my

St Andrew’s of the Glen, Glentunnel

Selwyn’s churches are a place of worship for people living

in and visiting the district. Many have interesting

architecture, history, or hold events linking the church to its

community; such as:

• Arthur’s Pass Chapel where tourists view the Avalanche

Creek waterfall

• Springfield’s Gothic Revival St Peter’s Church, the work

of architect Cyril Mountfort

• Glentunnel’s St Andrew’s of the Glen that has a garden

setting where bellbirds may be heard

• St Paul’s Anglican in West Melton where people relax,

listening to music at its Saturday morning market

• The historic 1885 Hone Wetere Church on Te Ruahikihiki’s

pã site and Urupa (graveyard) that includes old

pre-European burials.

Inside the churches, on surrounding gravestones and in

cemeteries elsewhere around the countryside, is a record of

early farmers and residents who ensured the continuing life

and vibrancy of these places of worship, keeping their faith

and church at the heart of their community.

The 2017 South Island Agricultural Field Days (SIAFD),

which took place from March 29-31, attracted a large crowd

keen to see what the 600-plus exhibitors were showing.

The largest agricultural event in the South Island, it is held

on alternate years between Southland and Canterbury and

is run by volunteers, who are proud of its status as New

Zealand’s premier demonstration Field Days.

SIAFD media spokesperson Daniel Schat said machinery

demonstrations were always a big part of the event.

“Because we are just 20 minutes from Christchurch airport,

we offer farmers and contractors throughout New Zealand

an inexpensive way to check out and compare the latest

gear,” he said.

For this year’s event there were good crops of maize, fodder

beat, pasture and oats ready for the harvest machinery.

Cultivation and seeding machinery was also in action.

Field Days draw

enthusiastic crowds

A new section for 2017 was the lifestyle section with exhibits

the whole family could enjoy.

Fifty exhibitors displayed products ranging from model trains

and spa pools to dog control systems and solar water and

power units.

Other special events at SIAFD included Farm Trader

magazine’s Top Tractor Shootout 2017. This compared

variable transmission tractors made by the world’s leading

brands, with judges testing the tractors on a range of criteria

including performance and affordability.

Two fencing competitions were held during the Field Days,

as well as the Agri-Innovation awards, which recognise

New Zealand-made innovations or inventions. These

could include implements, attachments or tools used in

agriculture or other types of primary production, with

entrants demonstrating their inventions.

SIAFD chairman Rodney Hadfield said there was innovation

mixed with tradition at the Field Days. “While the SIAFD

have grown, evolved and moved with the time, we have

stayed true to the aims we began with, in 1951 – to promote

ingenuity and innovation and to provide farmers with an

opportunity to view comparative demonstrations so they can

make informed choices before purchasing machinery and

equipment,” said Mr Hadfield.

SIAFD is a non-profit organisation made up of farmers and

others in the agricultural industry.

The Field Days would not be possible without the work of

volunteers and community groups and Friends of the Field

Days, who donated equipment and services, he said.

The event was a good community fundraising opportunity for

local schools and Young Farmers, who helped with parking,

running the tills and the entrance, and clean-up.

Celebrating

rural life

The attractions of a rural lifestyle are the mainstay for

many residents of the Selwyn District – attractions that are

brought together every year for locals and townies alike to

enjoy at the district’s annual A&P shows.

All types of animal, from cattle, to sheep, horses to alpaca,

and more can be seen at the shows – a great opportunity

for youngsters especially to get a close-up look at these

fascinating creatures, while the breeders get the chance

to win prizes for their stock. And of course the highlight of

the day, where the champions can be admired, is the Grand

Parade.

Arts and crafts are another aspect of the shows that always

create interest, with talented artists and craftspeople

displaying and selling their best works, while the Wearable

Arts competition is another take on artistic skills.

Food displays and demonstrations draw the crowds too, with

people enjoying the chance to taste some delicious country

fare.

The planning and organising is going on through the winter

months so everything is ready for when the gates open on

Show Day. So make a note of the dates and make a family

day of it at your local A&P Show.

After working for a company, where his job entailed driving

a difficult to handle old digger, Sandy decided to go out on

his own.

He thought if he worked hard, he could save up for a new

digger and control how the work was carried out so a high

quality job was ensured.

That was 20 years ago. Sandy and his wife Leanne’s

business, Ellesmere Excavation and Aggregate has grown

steadily ever since, expanding into aggregate supply about

eight years ago. They now have six full-time and two parttime

employees, with the business equally divided between

general excavation and aggregate supply.

TAUMUTU - A SIGNIFICANT

PLACE IN LOCAL MAORI HISTORY

Entrance to Ngãti Moki Marae

-

d

s

e

Taumutu sits alongside Te Waihora (Lake Ellesmere) and

very close to the sea. It is the site of several pã, significant

in the history of Mãori. It is also where some iwi, who were

migrating south from the North Island, decided to settle due

to Te Waihora’s rich resources.

Various North Island Mãori ‘Iwi’ visited Taumutu, in three

main waves. Visible mounds at the Ngati Moki pã site, which

runs parallel to Pohau Road signify this, along with the earth

work remains indicating traditional defences connected to

the earlier pã. There are similar mounds at Orariki, which is

the site of the Hone Wetere Church.

A Maori hall was erected in 1891 on the old pã site of Ngãti

Moki, later becoming a working Marae with the adjoining

Whare Kai built in 1986.

The Marae serves the descendants of Moki and father

Te Ruahikihiki, who now number in their thousands. A

Runanga committee are responsible for the development

and operation of the marae that couples as an educational

facility, relating Mãori history and custom to future

generations. It is one of eighteen Ngai Tahu Papatipu marae.

The Runanga is also closely associated with the wider

Selwyn community and has gifted names to the new schools

recently established in Rolleston.

The Te Taumutu Runanga gifted Rolleston College the name

Horoeka Haemata. This means flourishing Lancewood. The

leaves of the distinctive Lancewood native tree change in

shape and length as they grow and the analogy that closely

links with the school’s vision, also is indicative of the way the

Hone Wetere Church

students will also grow and mature.

Lemonwood School was also gifted a Mãori name by the

Runanga, Te Uru Tarata. This translates as grove of the

Lemonwood, a tree once prevalent in the Selwyn area. This

cultural history is being woven into the students’ learning

experiences so a nurturing, protective and cooperative

environment results, where individual talents, strengths

and interests are valued and bonds formed with the wider

community.

For West Rolleston Primary School, the Mãori name Te Kura

o Te Uru Kõwhai was gifted, reflecting the presence in the

area of Kõwhai trees, the flowers of which stand out.

The Runanga also plays an active role with other schools in

the district such as leading the Blessing Ceremony of West

Melton School’s new building this year.

Closer to the sea, the historic Hone Wetere Church and

adjoining Urupa (graveyard) sit on the site of Te Ruahikihiki’s

pã. This are is of particular historical significance as it

includes some old pre-European burials.

The Hone Wetere church opened debt free during the Easter

of 1885 and while built by Mãori for Mãori, has always

included Pakeha and other denominations.

The marae’s significance in Mãori history makes it a place

worth a visit. If doing so, be sure to adhere to Mãori protocol

by not entering the marae grounds unless invited. However,

people are welcome to explore the church grounds and

spend time on the lake and beach beyond.

West Melton School’s Kaumatua from

Taumutu Marae led the Blessing

Ceremony for the new building.

Building a new home is not an easy process so it helps to

have a builder, who listens to your ideas, offers sound advice

and guides you through, ending with a quality home you love.

Having a knowledgeable and licensed building practitioner,

backed by the 10 year Master Builders’ Guarantee goes a

long way to offering assurance with this major investment.

Choosing one who understands the building process also

saves time and can avoid cost over-runs where expensive

design elements might be chosen over more economical

options.

Rob Jones, owner of Artisan Homes has building in his

blood. He trained under his father (also a carpenter) and

has worked on commercial and domestic construction.

His expertise is behind the high level of technical skill and

attention to detail that is apparent in the diverse range of

homes that Artisan Homes build.

Whether an affordable family or executive superior home,

on the hills or flat, in a suburb or out in the country, Artisan

Homes complete superior quality builds, meeting client

expectations and budgets.

“We deliver value for money and don’t expect a massive

deposit up front,” advises Rob who adds that clients only

make progress payments once work is completed.

Artisan Homes is a recognised name in Canterbury and Rob

himself has lived in Selwyn for over 25 years. He knows the

area very well, and its ground and climatic conditions.

The level of thought and skilled workmanship that goes into

an Artisan home is evident in their show homes at:

Flemington show home village opens;

coffee shop on the way

Section buyers at Lincoln’s Flemington subdivision are now spoilt for choice with the opening of the

new show home village.

Bringing together eight of Canterbury’s leading building

companies (Online Design + Build, Mike Greer Homes,

Homes by Maxim, Fraemohs, Versatile Homes, Grace

Developments, Orange Homes and Homes by Parklane),

purchasers can turn dreams into reality while experiencing

first-hand the diverse range of designs and styles presented

in the show home village.

With Stages 1, 2, 3, 4 and 14 already sold, Flemington has

already created a sense of community not found anywhere

else in Canterbury. With its close proximity to Christchurch,

established schools and businesses, the 650-section

subdivision has attracted a diverse range of homeowners,

from those looking to build their first home to the more

mature retirees, enchanted with this sense of community

and wonderful scenic views that Flemington offers.

Beautifully landscaped, there has been great emphasis put

on security and safety at Flemington with the provision of

clearly defined, well lite, roads and footpaths.

With a children’s playground and tennis court already

extremely popular, work on a new coffee shop will

commence later this year with a child’s care facility planned

for construction after that.

Flemington is blessed in that it has easy walking access to

the long-established businesses and social outlets of Lincoln

township, yet has 1.2ha of recreational space inside the

subdivision including walking tracks, green spaces and small

lakes.

The multi-staged residential subdivision offers a range of

section sizes from 400m 2 to 650m 2 .

Lincoln’s Flemington subdivision

PROPERTY - A MAJOR

INVESTMENT

People settle in Selwyn for varying reasons with one being

affordable land prices in towns such as Rolleston, Darfield

and Kirwee where they can have more house and land for

their budget.

Green leafy towns like Lincoln and Prebbleton also draw

people in, attracted by a village feel, cafes and boutique

shopping, while still being close to work, retail, services and

entertainment in the city.

Many people want space to run a home-based business,

store toys and for their children to play with lifestyle blocks

and larger sections a draw card.

Selwyn’s accessibility to the city means no traffic jams or

slow commute, as is the case over the Waimakariri River.

Trip times will be even quicker on the completion of the

Southern motorway, which is currently under construction.

Employment opportunities are also increasing. Rolleston’s

Izone is filling up, Iport is expanding, more shops are

underway at Rolleston Square, and new shopping centres

have opened at Darfield, Faringdon and West Melton.

While larger blocks were once more popular, a range of

land sizes is now sought. Smaller sections of 300-450sqm

attract investors, people downsizing and first home buyers

cashing in their KiwiSaver/Homestart grant. Sub-divisions

offer a range of section sizes, many around 600-800sqm

that are sizeably less in price than the equivalent in the city.

Larger lots from 1,000 to 5,000sqm are also available, with

West Melton’s Wilfield and Rolleston’s Coles Fields currently

Stonebrook, Rolleston

offering ‘lifestyle sections’ within a denser housing area.

“While Selwyn is price driven, the mix of what it offers with

business, public amenities and employment opportunity

continues to drive the attraction for buyers to Selwyn,

making it very popular,” says Mike Goatley from One Agency.

Selwyn’s many advantages and closeness to Canterbury’s

playground in the Southern Alps is continuing to draw

people, many delighting in the opportunity to have a brand

new home in a relaxed and pleasant environment.

SHOW HOMES IN SELWYN

How Building Companies

Can Help

Whether planning to build, renovate or just get ideas, show

homes are helpful. They exhibit the latest trends in building

and interior design. They are also a good place to view house

plans.

Most building companies will adapt a plan to suit the

needs of the client and offer guidance on and through the

building process. Some focus on a particular style or level of

specification like architecturally-designed houses or more

basic family homes. Ask to see examples of their work and

collect designs you like.

Many companies work with designers. They may have their

own in-house team who can draw up or change an existing

plan to fit individual tastes and requirements. A fee is likely

to be charged for any final plan if you choose not to build

with that company. However, check you will not be charged

for any concept drawings completed in the initial stages of

discussion.

Gather the facts before deciding to progress further with a

particular company, not committing until you are sure about

your choice of builder, your budget and any finance has been

confirmed.

SELWYN’S COMING OF AGE

A lack of facilities for the elderly in Selwyn is currently

being addressed. While Darfield has had Westmar Senior

Care Centre and a hospital, there has been a void elsewhere.

Options for downsizing through to full rest home care are

now emerging in Lincoln and Rolleston.

Developed by Generation Homes, the boutique yet affordable

Devon Green in Rolleston’s Devon Park, offers a sense

of community in an attractive, open environment. Young

through to those older can purchase a quality architecturally

designed townhouse or duplex unit, with half of the forty five

planned homes already sold.

“The majority of our complete house and land packages are

under the $460,000 mark,” advises Evan Beker, Director of

Generation Homes South.

While not just for the elderly, Horncastle’s Ashbrook in

Faringdon offers smaller low maintenance two to four

bedroom units and townhouses (90-150 square metres).

Their aesthetically pleasing designs maximise space, flow

and light.

EARLY CHILDHOOD &

AFTER SCHOOL CARE

Selwyn has a large number of early childhood facilities

that include kindergartens, play centres and preschools

along with home based childcare options. Parents are also

supported with before and after school programmes.

The basis of the programmes followed in early childhood

centres varies from a Te Whãriki New Zealand early

childhood approach to Montessori, or Reggio Emilia with all

having an emphasis on family and community.

Te Whãriki promotes learning partnerships between

teachers, parents and families where all aspects of the

child’s world is taken into account.

The aim of a Montessori programme is to build strong

children who cope with diversity and interact well with

others and their environment, showing respect and taking

responsibility.

With the Reggio Emilia philosophy support, respect and

an enriching environment are all the focus, with children

exploring their own interests through art, drama, crafts and

play to become independent learners.

selwyn district residents' guide 2017

The line-up of schools in the district has expanded in recent

years with two new schools opening in 2017.

In Rolleston, Lemonwood Grove Primary School and

Rolleston High School opened their doors to students, the

latter taking year nine students in its first year with year ten

students due to start in 2018.

West Rolleston Primary School which opened in 2016 has

expanded its intake to year eight pupils while Broadfields

School, Tai Tapu School, Lincoln Primary School and West

Melton School all have new classrooms and buildings to

cater for their increased numbers due to growth in their

areas.

Schools in the district offer exciting and challenging

programmes. Many make the most of their rural

surroundings and have embraced educational trends

towards self-directed learning.

Students work collaboratively with their teachers on learning

projects that are centred around, their own areas of interest.

A broad range of learning experiences encourage students

to take responsibility for their own learning and undertake

research that will expand their knowledge, while being

guided by their teachers, so students are better prepared for

their future schooling and life beyond school.

selwyn district residents' guide 2017

Many people enjoy gardening and larger sections in

the Selwyn area provide a great opportunity to create an

attractive and serviceable garden.

There are local businesses that can assist you in establishing

a new garden, from designing a landscape plan to supplying

materials and carrying out the hard labour. If too busy to look

after regular garden maintenance, there are people who can

take care of this too.

The district has skilled, talented landscape architects

and designers, such as Sharon Crofts Landscaping or

Greenscapes. They will listen to your ideas and offer

suggestions, translating these into a workable and appealing

plan for your outdoor areas.

GARDENING

Contractors such as The Outdoor Space and Revive

Landscaping are also available. They specialise in the

physical work associated with landscaping as well as the

finishing touches, completing the whole or part of a job as

required. It might be renovating an existing garden, laying

paths and patios or constructing additional elements, like a

garden shed, man cave, pergola, or raised garden beds.

Landscape professionals eliminate the need for

backbreaking work having the specialised machinery for

ground and lawn preparation, and muscle power for planting

out trees and shrubs. Their skill and knowledge will ensure

a professional job. Most will also assist with the supply and

sourcing of materials such as top soil and plants to complete

the job.

Soil, compost, mulch and other garden supplies are all close

by, making the job of creating your own outdoor space so

much easier. Intelligro will advise you on, and supply the

most suitable materials for your project while Southern

Woods can guide you in your selection of plants that will cope

best with strong winds, hot dry summers and severe frosts.

When you need to ensure your plants will survive in the heat,

Freeman Irrigation can offer watering solutions to ensure

the investment you have made to your outdoor space is not

compromised. If it’s shade you long for on those hot summer

days, then ShadeCraft can supply shade sails, canopies,

umbrellas and carports. They have the expertise to advise

you on what is most suitable for the Selwyn area and your

particular location.

Izone reaching

maturity

A decision more than 10 years ago to encourage industrial

activity in the Rolleston area at the Izone development, on

the opposite side of State Highway One, has proved to be

one of Selwyn District Council’s most successful strategic

initiatives.

The 180ha development, which started out as a wholly

council-owned piece of farmland, has progressively been

transformed into a high-quality, master-planned industrial

estate – the envy of most other large-scale industrial parks

nationally.

More than 1200 jobs have been established, with many

more to come given that construction has yet to start on 40

per cent of land which has been sold.

Council’s finances have benefitted significantly during

recent years from revenue generated from land sales.

In addition, Izone-based businesses now contribute

significantly to the district’s rates revenue – a figure that

will only continue to grow as landowners increase the value

of their site by investing in buildings.

Development director Robin Hughes, who has overseen

Izone’s growth since its inception, says the only Selwyn

Council-owned land remaining for sale is 25 2500-5000sqm

lots.

“These last few smaller sites are ideal for contractors,

smaller manufacturing businesses and storage units.”

Timaru company Coolpak is one of the latest investors in

Izone, currently constructing a significant new coolstore

building on its 3.34ha site in Stage 7. Once completed in

two years time, about 20 staff will be employed, operating

a state-of-the-art blast freezer and freezer storage facility,

as well as a giant coldstore which will service a diverse

range of Canterbury meat, fishing, food manufacturing and

distribution businesses.

Inland port to improve freight movement

The first stage of the Carter development on 122ha of

industrial-zoned land in Rolleston, IPORT, will see the

Lyttelton Port Company establishing its inland port on 27ha

of the site. The remaining hectares adjacent to the port

are seen as providing ideal sites for businesses needing to

move goods to set up.

The inland port is designed to significantly improve

the movement of freight in the region, contributing to

the establishment of Rolleston as a regional hub for

businesses involved in exporting, importing, logistics,

industry and agriculture.

Strategically positioned at the intersection of Canterbury’s

major freight arteries – the South Island Main Trunk

Railway Line, the Midland Railway Line, and State

Highway 1, IPORT’s benefits will come to full fruition

with the completion of the second stage of the Southern

Motorway, which will halve travel time between Rolleston in

Christchurch from 30 minutes to 15 minutes. This is due for

completion in 2018/19.

selwyn district residents' guide 2017

The Ellesmere Motor Racing Club has been operating dirt

track racing in the district since it was first formed in 1969 by

Warwick Taylor and Kevin Burt.

In 1980 the club was successful in gaining approval from the

local Council and Domains Board to build a speedway track

at its current location.

After many fund raising ventures, along with many working

bees from club members the gates finally opened to the

public on April 24th 1983. The first few years of racing at the

Ellesmere track saw the club build a very high profile within

the local community and the track quickly obtained a great

reputation amongst the many speedway competitors that

travelled and raced at the dirt oval from all over the country.

Selwyn owned

Selwyn operated

No matter what type of vehicle you drive, Jones Rd Auto and

Selwyn Auto can service it.

They can handle all makes and models of vehicle from the

small runabout, larger family SUV, motor home through to

small commercial vehicles and motorbikes. Whether you need

a warrant of fitness, vehicle servicing and repairs, auto electrical

diagnostics or engine overhauls – the teams at Jones Rd Auto

and Selwyn Auto can deal with it.

They are also Motor Trade Association (MTA) assured which gives

customers added protection. Being a member of the MTA means

they have to uphold a high standard of workmanship and service

which also comes with warranties on the work they do.

Selwyn Auto also offers a motorcycle repair service.

These are carried out by a specialist motorcycle mechanic who

can also work on farm bikes (two and four wheelers) and can

repair any make or model; a service that is rare in Selwyn.

Both workshops are also accredited

to service fleet vehicles through

some of the main fleet leasing

companies.

For your convenience

there are courtesy cars

available and Jones

Road Auto also works

in with a neighbouring

car grooming business,

so you can book your

vehicle in for repairs or a

service as well as a

car groom.

Lisa and Nigel are always looking for new ways to exceed their

already high standards and provide more for their customers.

This has meant the installation of new equipment and hoists in

both workshops as well as the ongoing training of staff so they

can use the latest technology available.

They now have 14 locals working across the two businesses.

Currently, they have a pre-apprentice at Jones Road and also

hope to employ an apprentice at Selwyn Auto soon.

In addition to looking after the motoring needs of locals and

providing employment opportunities, The Flecks provide ongoing

sponsorship to local schools and sports clubs.

Nigel & Lisa Fleck

You will find Jones Road Auto at 851 Jones Road in

Rolleston and Selwyn Auto at 132 Leeston Road

(the Springston end). Their friendly staff will be only

too happy to help you sort out your motor vehicle

repair and servicing needs.
