“The award is testament to

the hard work that a lot of people

have put in for the club over

the years.”

Sudlow made special mention

of former president Gerrard

other volunteers who make the

club tick. De Rooy was also a

Health

officials to

apologise

for stalled

investigation

into death

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RED-FACED HEALTH officials

will apologise to Greendale man

Geoff Booth over the stalled

investigation into the death of his

son Liam.

Mr Booth laid a complaint with

the Canterbury District Health

Board after his 21-year-old son died

of a suspected suicide in October.

He is questioning whether Liam

received the necessary help in the

weeks leading up to when his son

was found dead in a park in Beckenham.

Last week, Mr Booth contacted

the CDHB without success to find

out how the investigation was progressing.

The Selwyn Times then put formal

questions into the CDHB also asking

about the investigation.

The following day (Wednesday),

a CDHB family adviser rang Mr

Booth saying there was no record of

the complaint made in October.

Before then, Mr Booth said he had

no communication from the CDHB

since a meeting with key clinical

managers in October.

He met with managers last year

to be informed there would be an

internal review of Liam’s care along

with a review from the Coroner.

from the editor’s desk

YOU HAVE to wonder how serious health

officials are over Greendale man Geoff

Booth’s claims about the treatment of his

son Liam, who died of a suspected suicide

(see page 1).

In October, Geoff lost 21-year-old son

Liam, whose body was found in a park in Beckenham.

He laid a complaint with the Canterbury District Health

Board at the time, saying Liam had not received the necessary

care and treatment in the weeks leading up to his death.

An investigation was to have determined whether Geoff’s

claims are in fact valid. But five months down the track nothing

seems to have been done because the CDHB had no record of

Geoff’s complaint.

And it appears it was questions to the CDHB by the Selwyn

Times last week which uncovered this. After our questions were

put in, Geoff was contacted by the CDHB explaining what had

happened. Mistakes happen but this is sloppy.

Cricket fan gets to join

captains for coin toss

A young Prebbleton cricket fan’s dream came

true on Saturday. Prebbleton School pupil

Emma Anderson, 10, joined cricket captains

Kane Williamson (left) and Eoin Morgan on

the pitch for the coin toss to decide which

team batted first before the Black Caps v

England match. Emma is a big fan of cricket

– playing the game in the backyard on

weekends. She said her favourite part was

School told to pay for frontage upgrade

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

IF HORORATA Primary

School wants to upgrade its road

frontage they will have to pay for

it themselves.

The district council says any

upgrade of the Bealey Rd frontage

outside the school will be at

the cost of the school.

The school is concerned the

unsealed road and the “flood

zone” created when it rains is

posing hazards to motorists,

pedestrians and the school.

It has been battling the issue

for more than 10 years.

But while the school is

expected to cover any costs

of construction, the district

council will likely look after the

“If approved, we would manage

it as part of that contract,” a

district council spokesman said.

A letter of the school’s concerns

were presented to the

Malvern Community Board at

its monthly meeting recently.

It was resolved district council

roading staff would further assess

the issue.

Staff will compile options and

a cost for the board’s consideration

to address the issue.

Principal Marty Gameson

told Selwyn Times last week the

school is continuing to work

with the district council to

resolve the issue.

“Their decision hasn’t closed

Mr Gameson said it is a “naive

world” if people think issues can

be solved the first time round.

The school is also being asked

by the district council to identify

its issues and concerns through

the district council’s draft long

term plan 2018-2028 submission

process.

It may also apply for funding

through the annual plan/long

term process.

In the letter to the board, Mr

Gameson said there was a debate

between the district council

and school about 10-12 years ago

over the issue.

He said the debate was over

who was responsible for the

unsealed area and the flood zone

created by the design of the road

which is unsafe to use when it

rains.

In 2016, the district council

placed and spread shingle across

the road to help alleviate the

problem.

Mr Gameson said the “poor/

rushed” preparation of the area

has now resulted in the substrate

washing over the footpaths and

into the storm water drains as a

result of heavy rain in the area.

A district council spokesman

said it acknowledged the shingle

was a temporary fix and that

a hard surface with appropriate

drainage is desired by the

school.

SELWYN TIMES

Planning ahead to cater for a

As Selwyn’s population continues to grow, the

economy does too. However, the increasing

population also provides some challenges for the

district council as it finalises its draft Long Term Plan.

Georgia O’Connor-Harding reports

ADDRESSING Selwyn’s

booming population remains

the district council’s greatest

challenge as it launches into its

Long Term Plan 2018-2028.

The draft plan will be discussed

at the district council

meeting today and

is expected to be

approved for public

consultation.

It outlines Selwyn’s

rapid growth and

demographic changes,

showing the district

has had a population

increase of 190 per cent

in the past 30 years.

The district has

grown from 20,520 in

1986 to about 56,200 in 2016 –

and now sits at about 60,000.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the key is having a realistic view

about where the district is today

and where it wants to go in the

future.

“We need to make sure our

infrastructure and service provision

matches what those 60,000

Sam Broughton

people desire,” he said.

While the level of growth has

created opportunities, it has also

placed stress on systems and

infrastructure that support the

community’s well-being.

The district council has

adopted a growth model

for strategic and activity

management planning.

The draft plan said the

growth model indicates

it will continue at a

relatively consistent pace

over the next few years.

It is expected Selwyn’s

population will grow to

86,440 by 2040.

The draft plan also

shows Selwyn’s population

has a younger demographic

profile compared to much of rural

and provincial New Zealand.

Between 2013-2017, the part

of Selwyn’s population aged

0-39 years grew from 24,500 to

31,700.

But ageing is expected to

follow a similar pattern to the

majority of New Zealand.

PLANS: An extension to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre is proposed as part of the district council’s

draft Long Term Plan.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Mayor Broughton said a lot of

young families have decided to

move to Selwyn.

He said it is important the district

council will continue to provide

community facilities which

match the age demographic of

the Selwyn community.

“I think indoor sports spaces

are a big part of that with more

and more young people looking

at a wide range of activities,” he

said.

An extension to the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre, an indoor courts

sport facility at Foster Park

and new community centres in

Hororata, Prebbleton and Leeston

are some of the key proposals

in the draft plan.

The district council is also

seeking feedback on introducing

chlorination to some community

water supplies, introducing a

new rating structure for the

water race network, and a new

community grants scheme.

Meanwhile, Selwyn’s economy

continued to strengthen at

the end of last year.

The latest quarterly economic

monitor from analysts,

Infometrics, showed gross

domestic product growth in

the district of 3.9 per cent in

December.

This is up from 2.2 per cent

six months earlier and well

above the national average of

2.8 per cent.

Consumers are adding their

weight to the growth of the

economy.

Marketview data on electronic

card transactions shows

retail spending in Selwyn grew

by 13 per cent in December

compared to the national average

of 4.3 per cent growth.

Tourism is also supporting

the consumer-driven growth.

Visitor expenditure grew by

14 per cent in December, more

than double the national average

increase of 6.4 per cent.

Total tourism expenditure

was about $102 million in

Selwyn during the year to

December 2017, up from $89

million a year ago.

In the labour market, sectors

such as accommodation and

food services had 90 new filled

jobs in the year to March 2017.

Wholesale trade grew by 49

filled jobs, and dairy product

manufacturing by 42.

Unemployment remained

relatively static at 2.3 percent.

Selwyn’s unemployment

rate remains well below the regional

average and is less than

half the national average.

For the December 2017 year

as a whole, the number of

residential building consents

in Selwyn was very similar to

2016.

However, in the final three

months of last year, there

were 217 consents granted,

compared to 290 in the same

quarter last year.

Infometrics’ data indicates

that on an annual basis, the

number of consents in Selwyn

decreased by 0.3 per cent compared

with the same 12-month

period a year ago.

The district council’s statistics

show that consent application

numbers dropped slightly

in September 2017 (by about

20 applications per month)

REVIEW: The district

council is proposing to

introduce a new water race

rating structure as part of

its draft Long Term Plan.

which is not uncommon in an

election year.

While the volume has

dipped slightly, the district

council currently has a number

of significant commercial

applications being processed.

March and May are historically

the biggest months of the

year for applications being

received, which is expected to

contribute to continued strong

levels.

Mayor Broughton said it’s

encouraging to see the district’s

economy maturing and

growing at a steady rate across

different sectors and markets.

Health officials to apologise

•From page 1

The review of Liam’s death is

still active before the Coroner.

Mr Booth said he was

concerned about Liam’s case and

questioned who else the CDHB

could have let down.

“Who else have they let

down? Who else is waiting on

something?” Mr Booth said.

Mental Health Services acting

general manager Barbara Wilson

said the CDHB wished to

sincerely apologise to Mr Booth

for the lack of acknowledgement

of his complaint into Liam’s

care when he was brought to

its emergency department in

September.

She said the CDHB received

Mr Booth’s complaint on

October 11.

“We can assure Mr Booth

that the points raised in his

complaint will also be addressed

in the Serious Event Review,” Ms

Wilson said.

The Serious Event Review

is the CDHB’s process when

there has been a serious adverse

event to identify opportunities

to improve its systems and

processes.

A family adviser will be in

communication with Mr Booth

and Liam’s family to provide

updates on the progress of the

review.

Liam had threatened to harm

The club of the year award

is further recognition of the

outstanding work being done at

the club. 2017 saw Selwyn United

gain promotion to the Mainland

Premier League and become the

first club in the country to attain

‘quality club mark two’ accreditation.

The QCM programme aims

to identify, support and highlight

football clubs in New Zealand

organisations.

“The club has a clear vision and

a number of their people have

brought in to this, allowing the

club to work toward a common

goal,” said Mainland Football’s

Community Football Manager

Martin Field-Dodgson.

On Saturday, Selwyn will play

their first ever match in the MPL

when they host Coastal Spirit at

Foster Park.

“The team are really excited to

prove themselves in the top division.

We think we’ve got a really

good shot of being able to get into

the top five and gain a spot in the

new South Island competition,”

said Sudlow.

Selwyn United was formed with

Readers respond to the

Selwyn Times’ article on

Selwyn MP Amy Adams’

concerns on the impact

Christchurch Southern

Motorway Stage 2 will have

on West Melton roads

Terri Pickworth – As a resident

of Weedons Ross Rd we will

definitely be affected by much

larger volumes of traffic using

our road to travel down to the

on/off ramps of the new motorway

– as it is a direct link from

the township to the motorway

so, of course, people will take the

most direct route, and to do that

they will have to cross SH 73.

We use this corner regularly

and it has to be one of the most

dangerous in the district for

confusion, near misses, minor

crashes and several major

crashes.

What will it take for Mr Harland

to believe Amy – several

deaths?

Three years until it is upgraded

is a joke.

I have no doubt that if it was

his local intersection something

would have been done long ago

about it . . . which brings me to

the point that when the latest

subdivision was completed on

the corner of Weedons Ross Rd

and SH 73 there was talk, and

surveys, about the corner needing

something to be done as part

of the consent.

WORRIED: Selwyn MP Amy Adams is concerned about the

impact the Christchurch Southern Motorway Stage 2 could

have on West Melton roads including the intersection of

Weedons Ross Rd and State Highway 73.

Why has the subdivision been

allowed to go ahead and still

nothing done at the corner?

I would also be interested

if the district council has

plans to change the speed

limit on Weedons Ross Rd

to accommodate the much

larger volumes of traffic we

will experience when the new

motorway is opened in the next

two years or if they will take

their time and “monitor” flows –

all the while delaying important,

sensible decisions that should be

made before any crashes injure

or kill someone.

Here is hoping you will be

proactive and not reactive

regarding this issue.

West Melton Residents’

Association member Bruce

Russell – In support of Selwyn

MP Amy Adams re: the very

dangerous intersection SH73/West

Melton Rd/Weedons Ross Rd at

the West Melton township.

I need to point out that the

progress to address the problem

by the New Zealand Transport

Agency has been disappointingly

very slow.

The West Melton Residents’

Association has been active and I

personally have held several wellattended

public meetings at the

West Melton Community Centre

on this very matter.

To the NZTA’s credit they have

always sent a representative along

as has the district council.

Safety issues at this corner have

been an issue for many years. They

include students being able to access

the West Melton Domain for

sports, parents and students walking

across State Highway 73 to

and from trying to accessing the

West Melton School and childcare

facilities.

So not only are there safety issues

with walking traffic but private vehicles,

business vehicles and truck

vehicle traffic has all increased

without any upgrade to the corner

in question. Traffic safety issues

have been a top priority of the

West Melton Residents’ Association

agenda for many years.

Discussions about safety at the

intersection in question have been

held with district council for over

20 years that I am aware.

An underpass on State Highway

73 was the request by the West

Melton Residents’ Association as

far back as 20 years ago.

The West Melton School has

always had safety issues with

their students accessing the West

Melton Domain. Today the need

is more of an issue with increased

traffic flow and the fact that the

school has increased to 450 pupils,

easier access to more sports fields

would be appreciated.

Also the safety of foot and

vehicle traffic has been brought

to the notice of district council

counsellors on their annual tour of

the district.

Now with the growth explosion

Local

News

Now

SELWYN TIMES

Fire rages, homes at risk

due to new subdivisions the underpass

is not a sufficient answer

to the problem. A roundabout

has been considered but there is

insufficient land area available for

a two-lane roundabout.

The future safety of this corner

now lies with traffic signal lights

with separate arrow times for right

turning traffic.

An essential requirement not

only for our children’s safety

crossing the very busy roads to

and from school but also the vehicle

traffic volume has increased so

much that drivers are taking dangerous

chances at driving across or

turning right at the State Highway

73/West Melton Rd/Weedons Ross

Rd corner.

It seemed that the belief or assumption

of the planning is that

the expected route for heavy trucks

wanting access the State Highway

73 for Darfield and beyond would

come off the Stage 2 motorway and

travel along Hoskyns Rd to State

Highway 73.

I can assure you truckies

will take the easiest route

(where they have less braking

and less corners to slow

down at) and possibly this

will be along Weedons Ross

Rd, past Weedons School

to West Melton Township

corner.

From here they will again

go past another school being

West Melton School in

Weedons Ross Rd to access

Halkett Rd thus bypassing

Kirwee and Darfield.

Safety is paramount. West

Melton is a thriving community.

Since 2010 there has been

a population explosion with

subdivisions taking off, very

busy BP service station, West

Melton Tavern, new West

Melton shopping complex

and the new West Melton

Community Centre to be

completed later this year.

To the NZTA: State Highway

73/West Melton Rd/

Weedons Ross Rd intersection

– please install traffic

signals at this very dangerous

corner now, or is a fatality the

criteria. Safety first.

Bill Taylor – I am very

concerned by the fact that

our elected Member of

Parliament Amy Adams, is

criticised by the New Zealand

Transport Agency, for

giving incorrect information

in respect of her investigation

into the effect that

the Christchurch Southern

Motorway (CSM2) will

have on local roads.

Jim Harland (NZTA’s

regional relationships director)

says Ms Adams was

wrong in the information

she received from the people

she spoke to at NZTA in

relation to this matter.

Perhaps Mr Harland

could get his internal

relationship director (I am

sure there is one) to inform

his staff of the correct information,

or is he insinuating

that Ms Adams is lying?

As our MP, Ms Adams

has every right to point out

the potential problems the

CSM2 could have on our

local roads and in particular

the intersection of West

Melton and Weedons Ross

Rds with State Highway 73.

This is of very real concern

to all those that regularly

use this intersection. One

wonders why the set of

traffic signals (just west of

the Russley Rd/Yaldhurst

Rd intersection) can not

be shifted a few kilometres

along State Highway 73 to

the West Melton/Weedons

Rd intersection. These traffic

signals have been dormant

and useless for the past decade

or so and still are.

Perhaps Mr Harland

could give us the latest

information in respect of

traffic volumes on West

Melton and Weedons

Ross Rds close to State

Highway 73. It would be

interesting to know traffic

volumes now (probably

2017) compared to the year

2000 when Ms Adams was

told that was the last traffic

volume count.

Skate park complaints

• By Georgia O’Connor-

THE NEW Lincoln Skate

Park hasn’t even opened

yet and has already drawn

a flood of complaints.

As a result, the district

council will now make

changes to the park to

the new skate bowl is unsafe

amateur skaters, is set to

playground.

Rolleston Town Centre

Rolleston Library and Community Centre

Update March 2018

your space + your ideas

Rolleston’s exciting new town centre will start to take

shape this year – and residents’ ideas are helping to

make sure it’s a dynamic, innovative space.

Planning for the new library and community centre

– a key project in the town centre – is now under

way. As part of the process, late last year we

asked residents for ideas and suggestions on how

people might want to use the new spaces.

We spoke to people of all ages at libraries,

community events, kids markets, bus trips and

neighbourhood gatherings. We also ran an online

survey and interacted with people on social

media to gather feedback. More than 200 people

completed the survey and we received over 500

different suggestions and ideas.

Borrow books

Below, we show some of the key feedback from

residents on what they want to see and do in the

new library and community centre.

People also told us about things they love about

libraries, like cultural celebrations, the welcoming

environment, places to learn and to connect with

people, opportunities to pursue interests and

hobbies, and special celebrations like NZ Music

Month and Te Wiki o te Reo Māori.

All the feedback and ideas received have now

been passed on to the team managing the design

and development of the town centre and the new

library and community space – helping to ensure a

fun, welcoming and multi-purpose facility.

About the Rolleston Town Centre Master Plan

A master plan for Rolleston town centre was adopted by the Council in 2014 after extensive

community consultation.

The plan sets out a vision for a town centre, located on what is currently part of Rolleston Reserve,

which will be a vibrant and engaging destination for Rolleston and the wider Selwyn district. Alongside

the library and community centre, the vision for the town centre includes:

· reserve, open spaces and playgrounds

· town square and civic gathering space

· indoor/outdoor dining and hospitality

Toys

Music and recording area

Young adult area

Gaming

Indoor garden Plants Fish tanks

Fun seating, bean bags, hammocks, sofas

Dance and performance Space for under 5s

Teaching and learning History and cultural references

Technology

Perform in front of whanau, friends (dance, drama)

Study

AR, VR, interactive

Play area

Listen to a podcast/streamed event Create a film

Watch a movie

Poetry slamWrite and make music

ConcertsListen to authors talk

Attend seminarsSee exhibitions

Read

· retail and entertainment areas

· pedestrian-friendly streets and spaces

A number of key steps in the plan have already been completed, including roading projects such as the

Tennyson/Kidman roundabout, the development of Foster Park, adoption of the Land Use Recovery

Plan designating the town centre as a key activity area, and the statutory Reserve Exchange process to

enable redevelopment of part of the reserve.

For more information and to view the Master Plan documents: www.selwyn.govt.nz/rollestontowncentre

Expert design team appointed

to town centre project

The Council is delighted to have appointed an outstanding team

of designers and specialists to bring the concept of a new town

centre in Rolleston to life.

Prestigious Christchurch architecture firm Warren and Mahoney

is leading a consortium that includes urban designers Boffa

Miskell, engineers TMCo, Traffic Design Group, Acoustic

Engineering Services and project managers Inovo.

Warren and Mahoney bring a wealth of experience to the

project, having been involved in developments such as the

Kaipoi Library, Lincoln Library and the new Christchurch City

Library, the Selwyn Aquatic Centre, and recent Christchurch

projects including the innovative PWC centre and Awly Building

and the King Edward Barracks development.

Council property and commercial manager Douglas Marshall

says the consortium is a great fit for the town centre

development. “The team has a deep understanding of the

significance of this project for Selwyn,” he says. “They bring

real expertise across the many aspects of this project including

retail, library, reserve and community spaces.

“We’re also confident they’ll bring a ‘wow’ factor to the

community space and the wider town centre, making it a

popular destination for locals and visitors alike.”

Warren and Mahoney Principal Jonathan Coote says the firm

is delighted to have been chosen to undertake the project. “As

a team we are excited about delivering transformation and a

new town centre for Rolleston that is ‘of its place’ and for its

people,” he says.

“Having spent valuable time digesting the community

engagement outcomes and brief, we are now developing the

concept at pace and look forward to sharing this with our

project partners and the wider community in the near future.”

Children used LEGO ® at community engagement events to help show their ideas

for the new Rolleston library and community centre.

What’s coming next …?

The design team is currently working on initial planning

for the library and community centre, as well as the wider

town centre development. This includes bulk and location

planning – working out where on the site the key facilities

and precincts will be located.

A critical part of the town centre project is the

redevelopment of the open space in Rolleston Reserve

into a vibrant, high-amenity urban park. It is planned to be

a destination for locals and visitors, supporting a range

of passive recreational activities. These might include

features like play and water areas, garden and informal

grassed space, sculptural features, areas for public

events and gatherings, and landscaping that reflects the

township and wider district.

It’s important that the reserve complements the town

centre facilities and is welcoming and useable for

residents. To help us get the design right, we are looking

for community views and we will soon be asking for your

ideas and into the planning and design of this space.

Watch for more details over the next few months

on proposed concepts for the reserve, and on

how you can provide feedback.

Police to tweak work rosters

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Peter Cooper

POLICE ROSTERS are under

review which could lead to

changes over when police

stations are staffed across the

district.

Canterbury rural area

commander Inspector Peter

Cooper said potential changes

could be in the wind.

But he has said it is not a restructure

– it is tweaking police

hours to see what works best for

staff and their

families and to

see how they

can give a better

service.

He said there

is no proposal

– it is an internal

discussion

and there will

be no changes in the foreseeable

future.

“I am talking to staff, I gave

them a bit of paper saying here

are the rosters you currently

work, is there a better option

and what else can we do,” he

said.

Currently officers work

daytime hours during the week

with some late shifts over the

weekend – and staff are on call

24/7.

“I’ve asked people to have a

going to do a roster change we

would do it in May but there is

no dates in my head,” he said.

Meanwhile, there are still

no further plans for the Rolleston

police station to be staffed

24/7.

Rolleston was one of four

stations across the country

earmarked to be staffed 24/7

in 2017/18 as part of the $388

million investment in police announced

by Prime Minister Bill

English in February.

But Inspector Cooper said

while there is no immediate

plans, it is “not off the table

either.”

It was announced last year

the new Labour Government is

planning to add 1800 new police

officers over the next three

years.

“We have had to put everything

on hold to see what the

new policy means,” Inspector

Cooper said.

About three more staff are

planned to be added to the

Rolleston police station.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Intersection

safety aim

of campaign

SELWYN MOTORISTS are being

reminded of the need to take

care at intersections through a

new district council road safety

campaign.

The “What’s the cost” campaign

aims to raise awareness by profiling

the price of failing to stop or

give way at intersections.

Of the crashes that occur in

Selwyn, 40 per cent take place at

intersections.

From 2013 to 2017, 571 crashes

occurred at intersections within

the district, and of these 216

crashes involved an injury, with

eight fatalities recorded.

In Selwyn 61 per cent of intersection

crashes are caused by

failing to stop or give way. Poor

driver observation is a factor in

49 per cent of all intersection

crashes.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills

reminds motorists that stopping

means a vehicle’s wheels do not

move at all.

Along with the risk of causing a

crash, motorists failing to stop or

give way face an instant $150 fine

and 20 demerit points. Police will

be monitoring intersections and

will be issuing tickets and demerit

points to motorists who fail to

stop or give way at intersections.

which are local Canterbury produce

and products, which have been

carefully selected. There will be a

balanced mix of food, wine and craft

beers along with items for your home

and garden, with craft stalls ranging

from sculptures to pieces for the home.

Sit and relax with a tasty treat

whilst watching the programmed

entertainment including ballet, circus

performing, singing and much more.

Wander around the stalls taking in the vibrant sounds

and smells of a country home and garden festival,

whilst being surrounded by the most stunning views.

Manderley Farm, within a 40 minute drive of

Christchurch, is nestled in Banks Peninsula with

stunning views and breath-taking gardens. It provides

the perfect setting and back drop for this favourite home

and garden festival.

for the district council, recognised that continuing to

promote local history would have long-term social

and economic benefits within the district. Mr Stack

will provide a series of monthly features focusing on

various historic places and people who have stories

that add value to the district’s heritage. Anyone

Selwyn’s Irish history

ON MARCH 17 Irish migrants

who have made the Selwyn

district their home will be

celebrating St Patrick’s Day.

The Irish have played an

integral part in the development

of the district from the earliest

years of colonial settlement.

Historically, Selwyn has

proven to be an area of opportunity

and prosperity, especially

for those who could acquire and

work the land.

One of the earliest Irishman

to seize such opportunity was

James Edward Fitzgerald, whose

Protestant parents hailed from

County Kildare.

He was one of the original settlers

to arrive in Canterbury in

1850 and by 1854 had acquired

the lease of a large pastoral run,

known as ‘Springs.’

The homestead was situated

where Lincoln University is

now and the run included the

area now taken up by Lincoln

township and stretched to Lake

Ellesmere.

It was Mr Fitzgerald who

established the township in

1862 and named the streets after

himself and his Irish homeland.

He named four of the new

streets after himself (James,

Edward, Fitz and Gerald) and

others after his sons.

He honoured his Irish heritage

in naming Kildare and

Leinster Terraces.

He was Canterbury Provincial

Superintendent in 1853-57, and

as a member of the first executive

council, he became arguably

New Zealand’s first prime

minister.

Our Great

history

WITH WAYNE STACK

He was also notable for establishing

both The Press and the

Lyttelton Times.

However, by far the majority

of Irish immigrants to settle

in the district were Roman

Catholic.

Land was available for those

who could afford to lease or

buy it, and with determination

and hard work, many families

prospered.

This was in contrast to the

situation in Ireland during the

19th-century where the penal

laws restricting land ownership

and political freedom to Catholics

resulted in Protestants, who

made up only 10 per cent of the

population, owning 90 per cent

of the land.

This, combined with a series

of famines in the 1840s and

1870s, lead to mass migration of

Irish families.

The first wave of Irish Catholics

coming to New Zealand was

in the 1850s-1860s; having been

attracted to the gold rushes in

Otago and on the West Coast.

Many had first arrived via

the Australian goldfields in

Victoria.

An example of this is the four

McEvedy brothers (James, Patrick,

Thomas and Peter) from

County Mayo who had immigrated

to Australia in 1858.

They arrived in New Zealand

in 1864, first settling in Hokitika

and then moving to the

Southbridge area, leasing and

purchasing land at Sedgemere

in 1866.

The family has been

established in Ellesmere for

over 150 years and have been

prominent in farming, in

establishing Catholic churches

in Southbridge and Leeston, as

well as the Catholic primary

school at Leeston, and in local

politics.

Michael McEvedy was the

mayor of Selwyn district for 12

years from 1995 to 2007 and his

cousin, Pat, is a current councillor.

settlement in the Selwyn district

Fire rages, homes at risk

Irish Catholics initially tended

to settle together in clusters due

to established family connections.

Known as chain migration,

newcomers relied on already settled

family and friends to provide

material assistance and work

opportunities.

This was certainly the case

in the Selwyn district where

Irish Catholic enclaves were

established around Southbridge,

Leeston and Killinchy, as well as

the greater Darfield area.

Killinchy was named after a

village in County Down, Ulster,

where many of the settlers in that

area had migrated from, while

a number of connected families

who settled in Southbridge came

from County Tipperary.

These rural locations suited

many Irish migrants who tended

to settle where there was high

demand for manual labour and

agricultural workers.

Government assisted migration

promoted the second wave

of Irish Catholic migration into

the district, with Julius Vogel’s

‘Public Works Act’ of 1870 leading

to the need for an available

labour force to help build the new

roads, bridges and railway lines

in the area.

By 1896 the local Darfield parish

priest recorded that he tended

to 300 Irish Catholic families ‘up

and down 70 miles of a growing

railway system.’

The Catholic church and

schools were fundamental in fostering

and maintaining religious

and Irish identity, as well as a

sense of community.

The building of local churches

and the two Catholic primary

schools that were established

in Leeston and Darfield were

funded solely from within the

communities.

The first Catholic church in

Leeston was a small wooden

structure built in 1869 on the

current site of the Ellesmere

Brass Band Hall. When St John

the Evangelist Church was

constructed on its current High

St site in 1894, the old wooden

church was transferred to the

new site and used as a classroom

for the new convent school which

was run by the Sisters of the Mission

from 1895.

At that time the school had 80

pupils.

Two additional classrooms

were later added, but the school

eventually closed in 1986.

The school buildings were demolished

and the church lost its

Joseph’s

Catholic Church

iconic steeple a result of the 2010

earthquake.

St Joseph’s Catholic Church

was built on donated land on

O’Connell St, Southbridge, in

1878 and was renovated during

the 1960s.

However, it closed in 1982 and

is now the Mistlewood Gallery.

Darfield’s first Catholic church

was the Church of the Holy

Angels, which was a Gothic-style

wooden structure built on two

acres of donated land on Telegraph

Rd in 1880.

This was followed by the opening

of St John’s Convent School in

1896, opposite the church on land

donated by the Clinton family.

The school originally began

with 40 pupils and teaching was

provided by the Sisters of Mercy.

The school closed in 1986.

In 1935 the wooden church

was destroyed by fire and was

replaced with the current church,

St Joseph’s.

Old World attitudes and

prejudice was prevalent within

colonial society, where religion

held more significance to most

people than today.

Up until the 1960s mixed

marriages of Protestants and

Catholics was frowned upon and

the dead were buried in separate

locations depending on their

religion.

That is one reason why Leeston

and Darfield have separate

Catholic cemeteries.

The Irish Catholics from

Lincoln raised funds for their

first church, Church of the

Reparation, which was erected on

Shands Track in 1871.

It served the congregation until

St Patrick’s was built on Gerald

Street in 1957.

Due to earthquake damage, St

Patrick’s has since been demolished

and Catholic mass is now

held in St Stephen’s Anglican

Church; something that would

have been unheard of 50 years ago.

Selwyn economy growing

at steady rate

Selwyn’s economy continued to strengthen during the latter part of 2017.

The latest quarterly economic monitor from analysts Infometrics showed Gross Domestic Product

(GDP) growth in the district of 3.9 percent in the December 2017 year. This is up from 2.2 percent

six months earlier and well above the national average of 2.8 percent.

Consumers are adding their weight to the growth of the economy. Marketview data on electronic

card transactions shows retail spending in Selwyn grew by 13 percent in the December 2017 year,

with the national average at 4.3 percent.

Tourism is also supporting the consumer-driven growth. Visitor expenditure grew by 14 percent

in the December 2017 year, more than double the national average increase of 6.4 percent. Total

tourism expenditure was about $102m in Selwyn during the year to December 2017, up from

$89m a year ago.

In the labour market, sectors such as accommodation and food services had 90 new filled jobs

in the March 2017 year. Wholesale trade had 49 filled jobs, and dairy product manufacturing had

42. Unemployment has remained relatively static at 2.3 percent, compared with 2.2 last quarter.

Selwyn’s unemployment rate remains well below the regional average and is less than half the

national average.

For the December 2017 year as a whole, the number of residential building consents in Selwyn

was very similar to 2016. However in the final three months of last year there were 217 consents

granted in the December 2017 quarter, compared with 290 in the same quarter last year.

Infometrics’ data indicates that on an annual basis, the number of consents in Selwyn decreased

by 0.3 percent compared with the same 12-month period a year ago.

Selwyn District Council’s statistics show that consent application numbers dropped slightly in

September 2017 (by about 20 applications per month) which is not uncommon in an election year.

While the volume has dipped slightly, the Council currently has a number of significant commercial

applications being processed. March and May are historically the biggest months of the year for

applications being received, which is expected to contribute to continued strong levels.

Selwyn mayor Sam Broughton says it’s encouraging to see the district’s economy maturing and

growing at a steady rate across different sectors and markets.

“Our strength of business in Selwyn continues along its positive trajectory with consumer

spending trending upward, along with an increase in visitors to the district and more local jobs

being created,” he says.

For Parks Week 2018 (10–18 March 2018), an exciting new augmented reality game with an

environmental twist – EverGreen – is available at Lincoln Domain.

Turning recycling and rubbish collection into a fun and exciting game for kids rewards them for being

responsible for their environment. The game teaches kids how to recycle rubbish by feeding different

types of waste to the right tree. There is a lot of activity involved and as the kids pick up the virtual

rubbish, the park gets greener and greener.

The New Zealand Recreation Association and Parks and Leisure Australia have again teamed up to

help organise Parks Week. The week encourages councils and other organisations on both sides of the

Tasman to run engaging events to raise awareness of the value of parks and open spaces, and to get

people out of their living rooms and enjoying the outdoors.

EverGreen does that by encouraging kids and families to get out and explore their local parks whilst

learning the fundamentals of recycling.

The average playing time of the game is 30–60 minutes with an average distance of 700–2000m covered.

There are also other Magical Parks games to choose from at Lincoln Domain:

· Augmentia – find kittens

· Prehistoria – collect dinosaur eggs

· Alien Scape – save aliens

Download the app on Android and iPhone and follow the in-game instructions. EverGreen will be

available on the app until Sunday 25 March.

What’s the cost?

Selwyn motorists are being reminded of the need to take care

at intersections through a new Selwyn District Council road

safety campaign.

The ‘What’s the cost’ campaign aims to raise awareness by profiling

the price of failing to stop or give way at intersections.

Of the crashes that occur in Selwyn, 40% take place at

intersections. From 2013 to 2017, 571 crashes occurred at

intersections within the district, and of these 216 crashes involved

an injury, with eight fatalities recorded.

In Selwyn 61% of intersection crashes are caused by failing to

stop or give way. Poor driver observation is a factor in 49% of all

intersection crashes.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills of the New Zealand Police reminds

motorists that stopping means a vehicle’s wheels do not move at all.

“We encourage people to come to a complete stop, to not start

looking until after they have stopped and to have a good hard look

to ensure that if there is a motorcycle or a dark coloured vehicle

they see it. We encourage people to travel with their lights on to

make sure they are visible to others,” he says.

Along with the risk of causing a crash, motorists failing to stop or

give way face an instant $150 fine and 20 demerit points.

Selwyn Police will be supporting the ‘What’s the cost’ campaign by

monitoring intersections and will be issuing tickets and demerits to

motorists who fail to stop or give way at intersections.

Top tips for intersection awareness:

· Always come to a complete stop at stop signs.

· Look in all directions, ahead, behind, side to side, and then only

proceed when you can do so safely.

· At give way signs, slow down and look in all directions, ahead, behind

and both sides and then only proceed when you can do so safely.

· Be aware of how fast traffic is going, particularly when entering a

100km/h road.

· Don’t overtake when travelling through an intersection.

· Be aware of the give way rules for controlled and

uncontrolled intersections.

· Indicate your intentions early when turning.

· Know your give way rules.

Water meters to be installed in

Selwyn High Country

Arthur’s Pass, Castle Hill and Lake Coleridge are the latest

townships in line for the rollout of water meters across the

district’s water supplies. Installation of water meters at households

connected to these supplies will begin this month, and is scheduled

to be completed mid-year.

Around 90% of Council supply households across the district

are already on meters. Metering has been shown to reduce water

consumption as it links water use to charging – so households that

use less water benefit from lower charges, while those using more

pay higher charges. Households with average water use will find

their total charge remains similar to what they currently pay.

You can help avoid incurring extra charges by monitoring your water

use – see www.selwyn.govt.nz/watermetering for more information

and tips on how to read your water meter.

Another Selwyn athlete swims Taupo

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHEN ANGE Moir, 49,

first started swimming she

struggled to swim 250m in

45min.

Five years later and the Lincoln

swimmer has conquered

Lake Taupo – swimming a

mammoth 41.5km.

Moir is the second Selwyn

resident this year to swim the

FortyPointTwo Lake Taupo

Marathon Swim.

Starting at 3.11am, it took

the mother-of-two 15hr 38min

to cross the lake.

“I did it really to show to

myself and others you don’t

have to have a background of

swimming to be able to succeed

in something like this as

long as you get stuck in and

get the work done,” Moir said.

Having a steady stroke

count of 51 per minute, it is

estimated she did about 48,000

strokes.

Earlier this year, Rolleston

resident Hannah Drury was

the first swimmer of the year

to achieve the marathon swim.

Swimmers have been taking

on the challenge since 1955.

Moir never thought she

could swim far until she began

getting coaching from Fit and

Abel owner Dan Abel – who

SUCCESS: Ange Moir (second

her support crew, Philip Rush,

Dan Abel and Mike Cochrane.

(Right) – Moir swimming

on Lake Taupo.

has successfully swam across

Cook Strait 88 times.

She said to this day, she

believes she would still be

trying to swim 3km if it wasn’t

for Abel.

She spent three years

training for the swim at the

Waltham Swimming Pool,

Aqua Gym Indoor Swim Centre

and in open water.

Moir said a major part of

enduring the swim was maintaining

a positive attitude.

Her support crew on the

day included Abel, marathon

swimmer Mike Cochrane,

and current world recordholder

for the fastest two and

three-way swim of the English

Channel, Phillip Rush.

“You wouldn’t do these

swims if it weren’t for this

amazing crew. It just about

makes you want to cry when

you think about what they did

for you actually,” she said.

While she was allowed to

stop to eat and drink throughout

the swim, she would be

disqualified if she touched the

boat.

SELWYN TIMES

Moir’s husband Barry and

friend, Melissa Hempstalk,

were also on a large boat

which would cruise past

throughout the swim.

At the end of her swim,

Moir said she was determined

to “stand triumphant” and

have photos taken before it “all

turned to custard”.

“The thing I had been looking

forward to for 15 hours

was a meat-lover’s pizza,” she

said.

Her next goal is to swim the

Cook Strait.

Rolleston School pupils decorated their courts with colourful

chalk. The pupils spent the afternoon drawing pictures

before having an ice block to cool down.

Broadfield marks 150 years

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A SUCCESSFUL three-day

celebration was held over the

weekend to mark Broadfield

School’s 150th jubilee.

The start of the jubilee was

marked by the school’s oldest

living former pupil Ted Smith,

97, and his great, great nephew

and a current pupil, Hayden

Lineham, 7, planting a scarlet

oak tree.

It was then followed by the

cutting of a cake by the school’s

youngest pupil Matilda Hansen,

5, and past pupil Margaret Morrish,

who was awarded a Queen’s

Service Medal for heritage

preservation. Hayden’s mother

Rachel Smith – who also teaches

at the school part-time, said it

was an amazing weekend with

about 2500 people taking part.

“Older people in the community

loved reconnecting with old

friends. It was lovely,” she said.

Miss Smith said the pupils also

loved the event, and took part

in many activities at the fete on

Sunday.

The celebration also included

a tour of the Broadfield Gardens

and a formal jubilee dinner.

Title to Prebbleton racer

• By Gordon Findlater

PREBBLETON driver Jack

Milligan claimed the Toyota

86 Championship with a string

of podium finishes at the final

round of the championship at

Hampton Downs at the weekend.

Milligan, 21, had a strong but

not unassailable lead, heading

Michael Scott

and Connor

Adam by 30

points and

123 points

respectively,

with three races

remaining.

Jack Milligan

With 75 points

available for

each race win

the championship was still wide

open.

“THe weekend started well. We

were quick in practice and knew

we had the speed to get the job

done,” said Milligan.

Qualifying on the front row

for Saturday’s first race, Milligan

was up against fellow Prebbleton

racer Jaden Ransley, who had

taken pole. Ransley, 16, drove

the race of his life to hold out

Milligan.

Milligan was happy to settle

for second with his nearest

championship rival Scott

finishing seventh.

“Our main focus was on where

Michael [Scott] was. When we

knew he was further down the

field I didn’t take as many risks

I might have normally,” said

BATTLE: Jack Milligan (right, front) claimed the Toyota 86

Championship at the weekend. ​

Milligan.

In the partial reverse grid

race, Jacob Smith had pole with

Milligan starting fourth of a field

of 14. Milligan carved through

the field to attack Smith for lead,

fading slightly at lap seven and

then surging back to draft Smith

down the main straight and

almost snatch the victory away.

In the final race of the weekend

and the championship, Milligan

was swamped off the start line

as four cars flew through the

blind, downhill turn one side by

side. Tom Alexander had carved

through to lead from Jacob

Smith, Milligan now moving

through to third and then a lap

later overtaking Smith.

Alexander and Milligan soon

forming a two-car battle for the

lead that went all the way to the

chequered flag with Alexander

taking the honours.

“It’s been a long road to the

title, a lot of hard but clean

racing. I can’t thank the CareVets

team enough, my mechanics,

Dr Keith Houston who put the

CareVets Racing programme

together and showed faith in me

– it’s been amazing,” an elated

Milligan said after the race.

He will head to Bathurst

in October to compete in the

Australian Toyota 86 Racing

Series, which is part of the

prize for winning the NZ

championship.

Milligan also plans to race

in the North Island and South

Island endurance series later this

year and is hopeful of securing a

drive in a Porsche in Australia in

the near future.

Milligan’s finished the 86

championship on 1117 points,

ahead of Scott in second on 983

points. Ransley finished the

championship in fourth on 872

points.

WEEDONS HAVE secured

a home semi-final in the

Canterbury country premier

one-day competition after

defeating defending champions

Sefton at the weekend.

A strong first-up bowling effort

and an outstanding unbroken

eighth-wicket partnership in

their run chase saw Weedons to

the dramatic two-wicket win at

Weedons Domain.

Batting first, Sefton’s Lance

Taylor produced an excellent

innings of 52 off 74 balls which

led to what should have been

a match-defining innings on a

wicket that was difficult after

rain during the week.

However, the visitors were

rolled out for 143 runs inside

42 overs, with Weedons’ Fraser

Austin the key destroyer taking

3/30.

KEY MAN:

Weedons set to

host semi-final

Weedons’ run chase got off

to a dreadful start with the

loss of Tom Suyker and Brad

Nightingale early to be 6/2. With

the middle order failing to fire,

Weedons looked down and out

at 87/8 in the 34 th over.

But Josh Watson (33) and Jack

Parker (29) had other ideas,

putting together an unbeaten 58

runs to see their side home with

two overs to spare.

Weedons will now host Cheviot

in a semi-final on Saturday.

The other semi-final will see

Sefton host Leeston-Southbridge,

which suffered a 74-run

loss to Cheviot at the weekend.

In the bottom four competition,

Darfield-South Malvern

defeated Southbrook by 18 runs.

In the other match, Lincoln beat

Oxford by one wicket.

Backyard Critters

Pests that cause leaf damage

Mike

Bowie is an

ecologist who

specialises in

entomology

(insects and

other invertebrates). Each

week he introduces a

new species found in

his backyard at Lincoln.

His column aims to raise

public awareness of

biodiversity, the variety of

living things around us

AT THIS time of the year, some

of the leaves in your garden may

show signs of pest damage.

My bean leaves are displaying

signs of localised chlorosis, the

lack of chloroplasts, the green

pigment used for photosynthesis.

However, it is not a nutrient

deficiency causing this; it is the

result of minute two-spotted

spider mites, Tetranychus urticae,

sucking the underside of the

leaves.

TSM are a cosmopolitan

pest species that originated in

Eurasia and have many hosts

including beans, corn, clover,

berry species, and many orchard

and glasshouse plants.

At 0.4mm long, elliptical

shaped females are just visible

PESTS: At this time of the year, two-spotted spider mites may

be why leaves in gardens are showing signs of pest damage. ​

with the naked eye. Smaller

males are teardrop in shape.

TSM are lightly green in colour

and have two dominant spots

caused by plant material, juices

and chloroplasts, in their gut.

Females lay translucent,

spherical eggs more often on the

underside of leaves.

Eggs became more opaque

as they develop until six-legged

larvae emerge.

Larvae soon develop to

nymphs with eight legs, the

same as the adults.

In hot regions or in the glasshouse,

mites develop to large

colonies dominated by webbing

and will climb to the highest leaf

tips to be dispersed by the wind.

Fortunately, several predator

mite species eat TSM eggs and

adults and can help keep the

populations in check.

Lincoln Uni revives major for

parks and recreation sector

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY and

the Department of Conservation

are teaming up to meet “a

desperate need” in the parks and

recreation sector.

With an extra one million

tourists expected to visit New

Zealand each year by 2025,

Lincoln is re-introducing a

unique parks and outdoor

recreation major and DOC will

fund seven scholarships for

students enrolled in this year’s

first intake of the programme.

The major, which was

previously offered from 2008 to

2014, is the only one of its kind

offered in New Zealand.

It is designed to equip students

for roles in parks and reserves

management, nature-based

tourism, visitor services and

recreation policy or planning.

“Good management of our

iconic natural landscapes and

ecosystems is key to the success

of the visitor industry. These

skills are desperately needed to

manage the increase in visitors,”

said DOC director-general Lou

Sanson.

“Many of DOC’s current

senior managers came from this

course, which at the time also

attracted overseas participants

from Southeast Asia and

Nepal, as it was internationally

recognised in helping develop

excellent parks managers, be

they working for central or local

government.”

The major brings together areas

of social science and ecology and

supports a requirement for sound

management of New Zealand’s

natural resources, as visitor

numbers to protected areas

grow.

introduce this latest technology. A full

EGR service and a bottle of injector

cleaner for $225+GST.

servicing and maintenance of vehicles

including batteries, brakes and tyres.

Maybe now is the time to get your

vehicle checked ready for winter, with

batteries, anti-freeze and tyre condition

Time to prepare your garden for winter

Fire rages, homes at risk

MARCH IS a busy month in the

garden with the final harvesting

of summer crops and preparation

for your winter garden begins.

After the ‘bizarre’ months of

January and February’s weather

e.g. extremely high temperatures,

‘rain bombs’ and cyclones in

some areas, let’s hope March will

bring more settled conditions for

gardening, with milder temperatures

and regular rainfall.

The last of summer vegetable

crops are ready to harvest. Do a

general tidy up and remove any

finished or diseased crops and

weeds etc before you begin preparation

of your winter garden.

Soil plays an important part in

growing healthy strong plants, so

always prepare the soil that you

will grow your vegetables in well.

Enrich and aerate it by digging

in plenty of compost a week or

two before planting. Check drainage

is adequate for the wet winter

months and when planting out,

rotate the site for your vegetables.

By rotating where crops are

planted, you can manage the soil

nutrient balance. The benefit

of crop rotation is that as one

plant depletes the soil of certain

nutrients (e.g. summer crop), the

next plant will replenish the soil

as it grows.

PREPARATION: Soil plays an important part in growing healthy plants. Right – Feed in fertiliser

and water well to have a lush, healthy lawn.

flower and violas.

Planting of bulbs should be

completed by the end of the

month in colder parts of New

Zealand. Their blooms will be a

welcome sight after a long dreary

winter.

Prepare the sites well for your

new bulbs by adding compost

and ensure there is enough drainage.

Think about the final effect

you want to achieve from your

bulbs come spring, for instance,

bulbs planted in clusters produce

a more dramatic display.

Bulbs to plant in March include

anemone, daffodil, hyacinth,

freesia, ranunculus, Ixia, lachenalia,

sparaxis, tritonia, tulip and

watsonias.

It’s a great month for apples and

pears with many varieties ripening.

Gold queen peach (the last

of the peaches to ripen) is mature

on trees now. In early March, in

warmer areas, passionfruit will

be ripening – pick from the vines

or collect off the ground as they

turn purple. Stone fruit trees that

have finished cropping can now

be pruned to remove old and

crowded branches, retaining wellspaced,

new season growth for

next year’s fruit.

Once the weather has settled

and regular autumn rains have

arrived, the laying of new lawns

and/or the renovation of existing

lawns can begin. As with most

tasks in the garden, preparation

is the key to success. Always

check the quality of the top soil

you bring on to your property to

avoid a new lawn full of seeds.

Use bagged products for

smaller spaces. One of the top tips

for getting a superior year-round

lawn is sowing a mixture of lawn

seed.

With existing lawns, feed with

fertiliser and water it in well.

Mow your lawn regularly to

encourage strong, healthy grass

growth.

Paws for Reading

Thursday 3.30, 3.45, 4 and

4.15pm

Read to a furry friend. Is your

child shy or reluctant about

reading? Do they need to gain

confidence in reading aloud?

Reading to a gentle and patient

furry friend can help. Selwyn

District Libraries are partnering

with members of the Selwyn

Dog Training Club to offer

Paws for Reading. Book your

child in to spend 15min reading

to a friendly, carefully selected

dog. Take a book that your

child has read before or choose

one from the library before

the session. Most sessions will

be on the mobile library bus.

Dogs have each been carefully

selected and will be monitored

by the dog’s owner/handler. A

library staff member will also be

on hand at all times during the

session, however, the sessions

encourage children to read to

the dog with minimal adult

intervention. Do not book your

child into a session if they are

nervous or anxious around dogs.

Do not book your child into a

session if they have a known

allergy to dogs.

Dressing your property

up for sale

Your house is on the market and you

hope to get a good price. While market

performance will largely influence this,

presenting your home at its best will

help.

First impressions count from the

moment potential buyers view a property

from the street to the moment they walk

through the front door.

Weed the garden, cut back unruly

shrubs and prune trees where needed.

Kill off weeds in the lawn, sprinkle grass

seed over bald patches and fertilise the

lawn.

Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess or

bulky furniture, toys, books, hobby items

or fitness equipment and if too many

photos on the wall pack these away so

the home looks roomy.

If there is a gap or a room needs

enhancing, look at what you have. A

piece of furniture might be painted up

or an old leather bound book popped

on the coffee table. Shelves will also add

depth to a narrow space while mirrors

may give the illusion of a larger space. In

entryways, add an easy chair, small table,

bookcase or large vase.

Awkward spaces such as coved ceilings

in attics or upstairs rooms might be

converted into storage shelving and

the room given a purpose as an office,

playroom or extra bedroom so viewers

can see how the room might be used.

Stow possessions neatly in containers,

shelving or tidily in cupboards;

highlighting the storage potential within

the home, ensuring it is clean and tidy

for viewing at any time.

Move the pets outside as not all buyers

will be pet lovers while some may suffer

pet allergies putting them off a house if

they see a pet inside.

If parts of the house look tired,

consider renovating by painting walls,

replacing worn carpet, or modernising

the kitchen, bathroom and toilet;

rooms that should sparkle. Replace

tired cabinetry, or the benches and

cupboard/drawer fronts then update old

toilets, showers or kitchen appliances.

Modernising these rooms can lift the

final selling price.

Use consistent and light paint

colours throughout for balance and

seamlessness, making the house appear

more spacious. An effect that is increased

when walls and curtains share the same

or a similar colour.

Consider the personality and purpose

of a room. Bright colours lift living areas

especially if large and open. However,

bedrooms are suited to calmer softer

colours with just a touch of bold. Layer

bedding or use throws for effect along

with cushions or a stuffed toy in a

children’s room.

With curtaining, smaller patterns or

plain fabrics are the rule for smaller

rooms whereas larger patterns make

spacious areas cosier. If blinds or drapes

are past their best, replace these even if it

is only with neutral cotton curtains. The

effect will be worth it.

Eco-friendly features will also add

value for some buyers though not

universally, however earthy natural

colours and features are popular.

Consider who your target buyers are

likely to be and what will appeal to them.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

A Spa retreat at home

There are few experiences more relaxing

that sitting in your own spa pool, with a

beverage of choice, and staring up at the

stars on a still, clear, Canterbury night.

Stress relief, eased tension from sore

muscles and the aches and pains of busy

lives, quality time with loved ones and fun

with the children, or just a few moments of

quiet time alone. These and more are the

benefits hot tub owners acknowledge.

New technologies and innovations in

design have made a wide variety of spa

pools available to suit every home and

landscape, and most budgets. Compact

two to four person pools fit into tight

corners, and much larger swim spas allow

you to exercise – swim, walk, or jog –

using powerful jets of water to keep you

moving on the spot. They provide low

impact workouts, plus all the therapeutic

benefits of the smaller spas.

In the age of personalised everything

– smartphones, computers, cars, and

space travel – spa pools, too, can be fully

customisable. For example, you can now

buy spas with interchangeable massage

seats which you can personalise to best

suit your needs.

These days, many spas include integrated

lighting displays, fountain and waterfall

features, remote control, and wireless and

Bluetooth technologies.

When it comes to landscaping for a

spa pool, imagination, and budget, are

the only limitations. From a simple spa

on the deck with perhaps a shade sail to

a more elaborate design integrated into

the entire yard with flat screen television

to watch, it is advisable to get direction

from an expert. Landscape professionals

ask the questions you may not think to

ask, and offer an experienced perspective.

“Some people want their spa to be part

of an entertainment area, others want it

close to the master bedroom. Landscaping

depends on how you want to use your spa,”

says award winning Landscape Designer

Sharon Crofts. From an initial onsite

consultation, design to implementation,

she and her expert team can bring your

ideas to life.

New pool safety legislation came into effect in January 2017. Regulations vary according to

jurisdiction and pool dimensions, and it is pool owners’ responsibility to ensure their spa pool

complies. You can search the selwyn.govt.nz website for the safety requirements in Selwyn.

Key reasons

to buy new

Buying new has many advantages. No one has

yet lived in your brand new home and it has that

new home smell and feel.

That doesn’t appeal to the villa crowd.

But many people dream of a home in a

new suburb.

There are many other advantages -- such

as being able to customise the home before

it’s built. Buyers love it that their build

guarantee covers most things and there’s

little maintenance to do for the first 10

years.

There are a long list of reasons some

people dream of buying new.

They include:

• Current Building Code requirements

specify a higher standard of insulation

and glazing than you can expect in an

older home, which makes your new home

warmer in winter and cooler in summer,

meaning cheaper to run. In addition there

has been a vast improvement in the quality

and technology of construction materials

over the last decade.

• New homes are designed for modern

lifestyles with walk-in wardrobes, double

or triple car garaging, en suites and heat

pumps.

• Internal access garaging.

• Indoor-outdoor flow. Home builders

before the 1970s rarely thought about this.

• Automatic pool covers and electric

curtains are included in a lot of new

homes, he says.

• In a new subdivision you’re not going

to have five cross-leased small homes next

door to your architecturally designed fivebedroom

dream home, he says.

• New purpose-built shopping and

service centres cater for the modern life.

• New schools can be popular. New

schools are being designed with “Modern

Learning Environments”, which are

considered better layouts for 21st-century

learning.

Another important factor is it’s easier

to get a mortgage. New Reserve Bank of

New Zealand loan to value (LVR) ratio

restrictions from October 1 don’t relate

to new homes. Likewise the KiwiSaver

HomeStart grant is doubled for first time

buyers.

When it comes to new apartment

buildings they’re built to a higher standard

of earthquake/fire proofing and, hopefully,

are no longer leaky.

There are, of course, disadvantages to

buying new. Not everyone wants to wait

six or 12 months to move into their home.

Other downsides include:

• Borrowing to cover the progress

payments is more complex than taking out

a mortgage on an existing property.

• Builders and developers can go broke,

leaving the buyer in an awkward position.

• With some new homes the buyer

effectively needs to become a project

manager.

• You have to deal with council for

building and sometimes resource consent.

• The location may be further from the

centre than you wanted.

• If it’s infill housing you might have a

cross lease situation that some people find

tricky.

• There are often teething problems with

a new build.

• You won’t get a quaint tree-lined street.

• Your section will most likely be smaller

than that of an existing home.

• Fences, paths and landscaping might

need to be added at a cost.
