Rugby legend seriously ill

• By Gordon Findlater

RUGBY LEGEND Fergie McCormick

is in a serious condition in hospital.

Friends of the 78-year-old former All

Blacks and Canterbury fullback have

told the Selwyn Times his condition is

serious but he is remaining upbeat.

McCormick, who lives in Springston,

has throat cancer. He was admitted to

Christchurch Hospital last Tuesday.

McCormick played 16 matches for

the All Blacks and holds the record for

the most games for Canterbury at 222.

McCormick first played representative

rugby for Canterbury in 1958 against

Wellington. The following year he

played 12 matches for Canterbury

including the famous 20–14 victory

over the touring British and Irish Lions.

McCormick was also part of the

infamous ‘Battle of Lancaster Park’ in

1971 against the Lions which is best

remembered for broken bones and

blood rather than the 6-8 score line in

favour of the Lions.

After beginning his career for

Canterbury at first-five he made the

eventual switch to fullback where he is

best remembered for his play.

In 1965 he was selected for his first

All Blacks test against South Africa.

He was next selected for the All Blacks

in 1967 for their tour of Canada, Great

Britain and France. He was a regular

starter for the All Blacks and toured

with them to South Africa in 1970. His

final appearance for the All Blacks was

against the Lions in 1971.

In his 18-year Canterbury career

McCormick scored a record 1297

points for Canterbury.

The McCormick family was

unwilling to comment yesterday.

SELWYN TIMES

from the editor’s desk

Helping beat adversity

SELWYN SOUNDS has come up trumps

again for community groups (see page 3).

Quite a bit of money is heading to Lincoln

High School and Lincoln rugby’s golden

oldies team.

The school will use the funds to help pay

for students’ trips, which covers both cultural and sporting visits.

The golden oldies haven’t yet decided what they’ll put their

money to but no doubt they have some out-of-town campaigns

in mind.

And they didn’t get the money for nothing. Lincoln High

students and golden oldies worked tirelessly at Selwyn Sounds, in

the car parks, on the gates, on the bars and so on. And with the

huge crown the event attracted it was tough yakka.

So the money is well earned and top marks for the event promoters

putting dollars back into community groups.

Sad news about Fergie McCormick (page 1). He is a true Canterbury

rugby legend. Our thoughts are with him and his family.

pay for student trips.

It will help with volleyball

trips, students going to Samoa

to do community work, the

school’s senior A netball team,

the World Challenge trip to

Nepal and a group travelling to

Japan.

Students sold artisan-style

picnic hampers at Selwyn

Sounds and helped with car

parking and on the gates.

Deputy principal Stephen

Rout said Mr Parlane has been

very supportive of the school

community and it will be looking

to get involved again next

year.

More than $10,000 was raised

for the Lincoln Golden Oldies.

District councillors argue

over water race closures

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

THE CLOSURE of water

races has sparked more

conflict around the district

council table.

District councillor Debra

Hasson had her concerns

over water race closures

at Malvern and Ellesmere

swiftly

rebutted

by district

councillor

Craig

Watson at

a recent

meeting.

A report

to close

Debra

Hasson

10.9km of water races in

the Malvern scheme and

6.6km in the Ellesmere

scheme was approved at

the meeting.

Cr Hasson was the only

councillor to vote against

it.

She called for a review

of maps outlining sites

of ecological value in the

Malvern and Ellesmere

water race schemes.

Cr Hasson was concerned

the maps have not

been updated since 2011

and the latest strategic

Eggstravaganza

BuffE t

april 1 st

water race draft has not

taken the current water

races ecological issues into

account.

The strategic water race

draft shows which races

are considered a priority

and what is deemed

unimportant or minor.

But Cr Watson was

critical of Cr Hasson’s

comments, calling for a

point of order.

It is not the first time

the matter has come

to a head between the

two councillors. He

said Cr Hasson was

“grandstanding” and the

closures had gone through

a “long” and “sound”

decision process.

Cr Watson said everything

has been considered

by the district council’s

water race sub-committee

and wasn’t sure why the

decision was being mitigated.

The strategic water

race draft is currently

out for consultation with

Environment Canterbury’s

water zone committees

including the Christchurch

West Melton Water Zone

Committee and the

Selwyn Waihora Zone

Committee. Cr Hasson

later told Selwyn Times she

would like an ecologist to

update the 2011 maps to be

in line with the National

Policy Statement for

Freshwater Management.

The 2011 maps currently

show water races of key

biological significance

including water races near

Darfield Primary

School

and the

Glentunnel

golf course.

But the

extent of

the Leeston

Dunsandel

Rd closure is

Craig

Watson

subject to further ecological

approval from the Department

of Conservation.

DOC raised concerns

the water race had mudfish

which has the same threat

ranking as kakapo and

black stilt.

Cr Hasson told Selwyn

Times she wasn’t “grandstanding”.

“I represent a view

held by many in the

community and as an

elected representative it

deserves to be heard,” she

said.

with family & good friends. So get

‘Take care at intersections’

Selwyn MP Amy Adams

writes about the district

council’s new road safety

campaign reminding

motorists to take care at

intersections

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

I SEE that the district council has

recently launched a road safety

campaign reminding Selwyn

motorists of the need to take care

at intersections.

While I hope that this campaign

will help focus people’s attention

on the unacceptably high

rate of crashes at intersections in

our regions, I think we need to

do more.

Sixty one per cent of intersection

crashes in Selwyn are caused

by a failure to stop or give way.

Often drivers do not realise

they are approaching an intersection

until far too late.

One effective method of

alerting drivers early that an

intersection is coming up is using

warning signs.

Back in 2016, I was present

at the launch of the trial of

advanced warning signs at four

Selwyn intersections.

These active warning signs

were developed by Sergeant Dan

Harker and work by flashing

when a car is approaching an

upcoming stop sign.

The signs function by using solar-powered

flashing LED lights

and vehicle detection sensors.

The trial of these signs was due

to run until October last year

and if you drive around Selwyn

you will likely have noticed

them at the following four

intersections – Maddisons and

Weedons Ross Rds, West Melton

and Hoskyns Rds, Hamptons

and Shands Rds and Hoskyns

and Sandy Knolls Rds.

I would like to see additional

signs like this at other hazardous

intersections around Selwyn.

The district council has stated

that it has provided a report

to the New Zealand Transport

Agency on the results of the trial

and it has indicated that it is

considering trialling the signs at

other sites around the country to

further evaluate them.

On another note, I am pleased

to see that the latest quarterly

figures from Infometrics showed

that Selwyn’s economy continued

to strengthen during the latter

part of last year.

According to the figures,

Selwyn’s gross domestic product

grew by 3.9 per cent in the

December 2017 year, which is

well above the national average

of 2.8 per cent.

Retail spending in our district

also grew by a healthy 13 per cent

during the same period, once

again significantly outperforming

the national average of 4.3

per cent.

Spending by visitors to Selwyn

also grew by 14 per cent during

last year, with tourism expenditure

in the district totalling about

$102 million during the year.

PLANS: An extension to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre is

proposed to cater for the district’s growing population as part

of the draft Long Term Plan. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Readers respond to

a Selwyn Times’ article

on population growth

remaining the greatest

challenge for the district

council as it launches into

its draft Long Term Plan

2018-2028

Jan and John Zervos – The

Canterbury Plains are beginning

to look like every other seething

metropolis.

Towns morphing into cities,

sardine sub-divisions, more

congested highways and

skyways, and a separation from

east to west. The haves and the

have-nots.

High-density living, industrial

disease and the problems that

come with it.

They’re old, backwards,

out-dated thought forms

regurgitated by consultancy

groups using computer

modelling to push a particular

perception of what the 21st

century could look like.

The current trending of

destructive unbridled growth

across Canterbury by these

manipulative processes is

unsustainable and set to cease as

people wake-up, wise-up, stepup

and speak-up. Consumerism

is destined to fade away. To grow

and evolve wider actually takes

a reconnection with nature and

a gradual disconnection from

the economic system which has

been covertly and corruptly

used to continually degrade our

biological environment and us.

A prime example is the

degradation of our aquifers

since the turn of the century.

The corruption is now out in

the open and everyone needs to

step-up and support groups like

Aotearoa Water Action.

This is it. Now is the time to

shift, rediscover and focus on a

more pristine and harmonious

way for us and our families to

HISTORIC trains could

once again run from

Springfield to Arthur’s

Pass.

The Midland Railway

Heritage Trust is in the

process of opening a workshop

in Springfield for

restoring trains.

The workshop, opposite

the railway station, will

promote railway heritage

in the township.

The trust’s chairman

Alan Roberts said it is

possible when the trains

are restored they will

run on the Midland

Line.

He said it is important

railway heritage is celebrated

and it is a top priority

to conserve the area and

station.

It comes as The Friends

of Springfield Station plans

to beautify the railway station

to transform it into a

community hub.

Already, the trust has

three trains to restore –

including two UCsteam

locomotives and a 1890 LA

train recovered from the

Grey River on the West

Coast.

TRANSFORMATION: One of the UCsteam

locomotives recovered from the West Coast’s Grey

River will be restored as part of the Midland Railway

Heritage Trust’s project at Springfield.

They also have two 1950

diesel shunters to restore.

Mr Roberts said the

UCsteam locomotives were

used on the Midland Line

from the early 1900s until

about 1950.

The LA train was used

for shunting wagons in

the Greymouth railway

yard and the diesel shunters

were yard shunters

from the Islington Freezing

Works in Christchurch.

Mr Roberts said work

located off Pocock Rd, is

“We have got some of the

foundations down, we have

got the resource consent

and obviously the building

consent . . . it is a time and

money thing,” he said.

He said the trust has

redirected its priority to

getting a small kitset shed

set up for storage.

The shed will be located

further along from the

main work shed at the old

workshop pit site – and

will have two sets of railway

restore locomotives

The Midland Line opened up

to the West Coast when the Otira

Tunnel opened in 1923 and has

been used for the considerable

export of coal, timber, farm products

and a source of travel.

The workshop will also be used

to build a steam engine which is

aimed at getting steam locomotives

to run on wood rather than

coal.

The invention is by Mackwell

Locomotive Company director

Sam Mackwell – who has spent

more than three years developing

a sustainable steam-powered

boiler.

The trust was formed in 2004

by “a group of keen rail enthusiasts”

aiming to preserve one of

New Zealand’s “great natural and

man-made assets.”

WEST MELTON teen Maddie

Collins has been named Silver

Linings Complete Equine Care’s

most inspirational rider.

Maddie, 14, won the award

after competing in the North

Loburn Equestrian Centre’s

summer dressage series.

Her mother Sarah Manson-

Collins said the prize includes

the use of Silver Linings Complete

Equine Care’s arena along

with mirrors and a soloshot

camera.

Mrs Manson-Collins said

Maddie was “very excited” with

the award.

She said it’s great to be home

after Maddie’s potentially lifesaving

kidney transplant, but

doctors “have some concerns”

following recent blood test

results.

“Her numbers aren’t as good

as they were . . . it’s just an

awareness that something’s

not quite right,” Mrs Manson-

Collins said.

She said Maddie will be

having a biopsy at Starship

Children’s Health in Auckland

next week.

Maddie spent a couple hours

at St Margaret’s College on

Wednesday and will be going

back to school full-time next

term.

However, Maddie will be doing

her schoolwork from home.

Maddie and her family were

told on January 16 their fiveyear

wait for a kidney match had

been found.

They flew from Christchurch

to Auckland early the following

day and Maddie underwent an

initial operation and then a second

operation to reposition the

kidney hours later at Starship

Children’s Health.

Mrs Manson-Collins said

Maddie has had an “amazing

recovery” in spite of the first 48

hours not going to plan.

‘EXCITED’: 14-year-old Maddie Collins has been awarded the

most inspirational rider after competing in the North Loburn

Equestrian Centre’s summer dressage series.

She flew back to Christchurch

in late February after spending

two weeks at Starship Children’s

Health and four weeks recovering

at Ronald McDonald House

in Auckland.

Maddie received a kidney

transplant from her father

Adam Collins five years ago but

her body rejected it.

Mrs Manson-Collins said they

want to keep the conversation

around organ donation going.

“Just because she’s had a

transplant, she doesn’t want

people to forget and stop talking

about being an organ donor,”

she said.

SCHOOLS

West Melton pupils show

the future of gardening

A FUTURE-themed

garden designed by West

Melton School pupils has

won a top award.

The school received a

gold award at the recent

Oderings School Gardens

Show.

The garden’s theme was

around having the power

to drive a future journey

and the choice between

wishing for a sustainable,

colourful and bountiful

future, or one where living

things struggle to survive

alongside man-made junk

discarded by humans.

In the middle of the garden

was an old well found

beneath the school during

recent renovations.

Promotions and marketing

officer Rita Spadoni

said the wishing well in

the garden represents

the past and also allows

people to make their own

private wishes for the

future.

She said pupils were excited

to depict a contrasting

image of the future.

Principal Sue Jackson

said she was impressed

with the creativity and

She said the importance

Shoe exchange benefits food bank

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FAMILIES struggling to keep

up with the high cost of playing

team sport can now get a helping

hand.

A Selwyn Shoe Exchange has

opened in Leeston in a bid to

help more children, teenagers

and adults get involved in sport

with good footwear.

It was opened by Leeston Physio

after the business had been asking

for donations of old clean sport

shoes/boots since the middle

of last year. In return for the

footwear, the recipient is asked to

donate a non-perishable food item

to the Ellesmere Food Bank.

Principal physiotherapist

Emma Wilson said the idea

came after hearing about

Ellesmere families who couldn’t

afford to play rugby because of

the cost of rugby boots and subs.

“It made me go ‘we are in a

position here’ . . . we often get a

lot of kids coming through here,

and the shoes aren’t appropriate

for what they are trying to do or

adults are getting into sport and

don’t have the appropriate footwear,”

she said.

But Mrs Wilson says it is not

only for disadvantaged families,

it is a sensible way of supporting

families to take away stress.

Mrs Wilson said many

children grow out of their sports

footwear before the shoes have

had much wear.

Footwear has already been

presented to several families and

residents who are trying to lose

weight by getting into walking.

Mrs Wilson said the exchange

has received “huge support”

and the donations have been

amazing.

Receptionist Sharyn Sheat said

the business has got “shelves

full” of shoes, and it was time

Once the village is finished, Manor Group will

transfer village ownership into a residents’ company,

enabling residents to contribute to the operation of

their own village, assisted by an on-site manager.

Our People

Courtney Forrest

Helping young people beat adversity

Rolleston youth

worker Courtney

Forrest, 29, works

to support and

help young people

overcome major

struggles in their

life. He spoke to

Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

What does a normal day look

like for you?

It changes everyday. Hope

Youth Trust is the agency I am

part of and that is part of the

Hope Presbyterian Church.

We have three active sites

happening in the south-west side

of Christchurch. That is Hope

Hornby, Hope Rolleston and

Hope West Melton. Specifically

in Rolleston I am paid full-time

and I work in Rolleston School

with year 7 and 8 and I work in

Rolleston College.

What does your role involve?

The biggest role we have is to

support the staff and students

in the local settings we are in.

In the local college and the local

school. Day-to-day, we do a

lot of in-class support. Getting

alongside those students who are

struggling. A lot of emotional

support, pastoral support

or conflict as well. Working

through conflict with staff and

students to brings them back

to that restorative behaviour. It

can be quite tricky. We go into

the schools and go “where do

you see us working well”. We

do leadership development and

we run leadership programmes

for years 7 and 8. We also help

out with leadership, like the

school leaders at Rolleston

College which has been evolving

over the last couple of years. I

have been in Rolleston School

since 2009 for 10 hours a week.

It is a three-way local trust

relationship. The district council

POTENTIAL: Youth worker Courtney Forrest teams up with Rolleston School class leaders Isaac Ritchie (left), Lilly McQueen and

Matthew Webster to plan events for their fellow pupils.

financially supports the work we

do in local schools. We don’t call

ourselves counsellors, we don’t

call ourselves teacher aids. It is

the kind of wrap around support

I guess.

Have you found the students

have embraced the work you are

doing?

Yes, just the other day there

was a boy struggling to fit in.

He had a meltdown in the

classroom so I was just working

alongside him. Quite often it

is what is happening around

home as well. It is offering that

support. Often we do outsideof-school

mentoring. We build

relationships with the family

of those kids who are a little bit

on the edge and say ‘hey, how

can we support?’ We also work

alongside the counsellors to help

support what they are doing, and

speak the same language if we

can. We have got that personal

relationship with the young

people whereas they have got the

more professional relationship.

How do you find the right

answers to the difficult issues?

We follow the youth code

of ethics if there are big issues

going on. We are connected

with counsellors. We have a

counselling service based in

Hornby we can refer them onto

and get advice. That is big benefit

for us being part of a youth trust.

We have that kind of professional

support as well. A couple of boys

had depression and my role has

been going along to the doctor

supporting them and going ‘it is

okay we are here to support you

and we will work really hard at

getting you the help you need’.

Is it difficult to get people to

open up?

It is about positive

reinforcement, saying ‘thanks

for letting us know, that is really

brave of you, we really want to

get you help. You’re not weird or

stupid’. We have all had struggles

we have had to work through

and that is the beauty of our

work.

Why did you decide to

become a youth worker?

Just to give you a little bit

of background: I have done a

Bachelor of Business at Massey

University. Over the last 12 years,

I have been involved in a paid

capacity and volunteer capacity

of getting alongside young

people in youth communities.

I guess I have just seen the real

value of having strong role

models in my life.

Our People

Supporting young people in Rolleston

•From page 17

I guess what gets me out of

bed in the morning is making

a difference for boys and girls

who don’t have those strong role

models in their life, where their

parents may be absent in their

life. To see them succeed and

develop and become a really awesome

young person and to take

opportunities that come. I get a

real kick out of that. I have done

accounting, I was in that corporate

environment. I just couldn’t

sit behind a desk for nine hours

a day. I really wanted to get out

there and make a difference in

people’s lives.

Has there been anything

significant in your life you have

been able to share to help other

people going through difficult

times?

I guess I come from a broken

family. My parents separated

when I was a teenager. I see a lot

of that. My dad wasn’t a strong

positive role model in my life. I

guess coming out of the other

side of that and going ‘what have

I learnt and what do I hold onto?’

I think that has been a huge

thing; to have been able to relate

to those whose parents are separating.

To feel their pain and feel

their hurt and being shifted from

one parent to another throughout

the week and what that entails

as well. Quite often kids are left

right in the middle of that with

a whole lot of things happening

around them. Kids are right in

the middle but not cared for. That

is where I have come in and said

‘hey, I will support you, I’ll journey

with you and care for you as

much as I can’.

What are the biggest issues in

Rolleston?

With the population growth

the town hasn’t been able to catch

up. Things for young people to

get involved with and do, there

hasn’t been that. It is starting

to happen at a faster pace. For

the first three or four years I

was there, young people were

really bored because all that

was here was the skate park. We

run a Friday night youth night

as well, so that is something we

have worked hard on. It is for

intermediate and high school

students and we have a team

of youth leaders who run high

energy activities. But also for

high school, there’s more of that

mentoring and trying to build a

sense of identity, community and

relationships.

How have you found working

in Rolleston College?

This year especially I really

think the culture is starting to

INSPIRING YOUTH: Hope

Rolleston achieve their full

potential.

build. Last year everything was

so new. This year, they have got

some good policies in place and I

think there is so much the young

people can partake in.

What needs to be done to improve

Rolleston?

I have spoken about this with

district council people at a community

level. Now that we have

got a college, where do they fit

in in terms of employment. We

have got a massive Izone Business

Hub here. Year 12 students and

year 13 students as they arrive to

the college- how do we transition

them well into the workforce

and what work opportunities

are there? I don’t think that has

really happened yet. How can we

provide a good strong pathway

for these young people to get into

a workforce.

How long have you lived in

Selwyn?

I moved there at the beginning

of 2013. I love the family spirit

of the community. Just walking

down the streets and catching

up with young people - that’s

special. It is growing but has still

got that small intimate setting I

believe.

What do you enjoy doing in

your spare time?

I enjoy running. I am a bit of

an active relaxer so any kind of

social sport .I have done three

marathons and I am training for

my next event. I am looking at

doing the Rotoroa Half Marathon

2018 in May.

What has been the most inspiring

part of your job?

I guess in our youth work we

have had some pretty long serving

people. It can be seen as a bit

of a short term kind of profession.

When I have wanted to

throw it in I have thought about

them. They have been through

all seasons that has continued to

keep me grounded, focused and

finding purpose in what I do.

There are people who have been

doing it 20-30 years and I go wow

they believed in that youth work.

They believed in that profession

even though it hasn’t been hugely

New Lincoln Bridge –

get on it!

The new timber bridge in the Lincoln Esplanade Reserve has been completed.

Council’s land development project manager Phil Millar says the new bridge – which crosses the

Liffey Stream between Esplanade Reserve land south of Moffat Drive and Ryelands Drive – is a

wonderful addition to Lincoln’s network of walkways.

“Get your walking shoes on and go for a walk over Lincoln’s new bridge and along the Esplanade

Reserve. The views from the bridge of the Liffey are breathtaking,” Mr Millar says.

Lincoln Community Committee member Lindsay Wilson says the committee is delighted to have

the bridge installed and open to the public.

“The committee has been hugely supportive of the construction of the bridge and the improved

access to the Liffey,” Mr Wilson says. “We encourage the public to see and walk across it as we

are very pleased with the quality of the final outcome.”

The bridge is one of the longest pedestrian bridges in the Selwyn district, having a 20 metre central

span (the distance between two intermediate supports for a structure) and 32m in length in total.

The bridge is an important part of increasing the connectivity of pathways and links within the

Esplanade Reserve. Lincoln Primary students can now cross the bridge from Ryelands Drive,

which then connects to the shared cycleway and footpath running parallel with Moffat Drive and

adjacent to the Lincoln Primary School Satellite Campus site.

The new thoroughfare has disabled accessibility from Moffat Drive down to and across the

Liffey Stream.

The facts:

· The Lincoln bridge was stage two of a three stage project which began in 2016. The stages

include: 1) A shared walkway and cycleway south of Moffat Drive adjacent to the Satellite School

(completed), 2) the timber pedestrian Bridge (pictured), and 3) access to an area currently

landlocked further south in the Lincoln Esplanade (future project).

· Hunter Civil project management and construction built the timber bridge offsite.

· Three sections of the 32m bridge were craned onto four central piles.

· It’s one of Selwyn district’s largest footbridges at 32m in total length.

Selwyn Awards 2018 – Recognising success in

our community

The Selwyn Awards (formerly the Sensational Selwyn Awards) are presented every two years to

individuals and organisations who live or work in Selwyn and honour outstanding work or inspirational

achievements. This year the Awards gala dinner will take place on Saturday 4 August at the Lincoln

Event Centre.

With 10 award categories, we encourage nominations to celebrate success in Arts, Culture and

Heritage; Community Service; Environmental; Innovation Excellence (new award for 2018); Large

Business; Small Business; Sport; Tourism; and Young Achievers. For the first time, you can also have

your say and vote for your favourite nominee for the People’s Choice Award.

Who in Selwyn do you think deserves

to be recognised for their outstanding

achievements? Nominations will open on

Monday 9 April and close on Friday 15 June.

Check out www.selwynawards.co.nz for

more information.

Council services during

Easter weekend

There are some changes to Council services during Easter

weekend. Read on to see how they could affect you.

Rubbish and recycling normally collected on Friday 30 March

(Good Friday) will be collected on Saturday 31 March. Collection on

Monday 2 April (Easter Monday) will occur as normal.

Pines Resource Recovery Park is closed Friday 30 March, but open

from 10am–4pm on Saturday, Sunday and Easter Monday.

The Selwyn Aquatic Centre is open from 8am–8pm daily from

Friday 30 March to Monday 2 April, with normal hours (6am–9pm)

resuming on Tuesday 3 April. For normal open hours you can visit

www.selwyn.govt.nz/facilities-and-parks/selwyn-aquatic-centre.

Selwyn Libraries will be closed on Good Friday and Easter Monday,

but open on Saturday 31 March with normal opening hours. For

normal open hours you can visit www.selwynlibrary.co.nz/about-us.

Council’s Rolleston Headquarters will be closed on Good Friday and

Easter Monday, and will reopen on Tuesday 3 April.

Rolleston Community Centre and Lincoln Event Centre are closed

on Good Friday and Easter Monday, reopening on Tuesday 3 April.

If you need to get in touch with Council during this time you can

contact the 24/7 Helpline on 347 2800 or you can log a request on

our online helpline form at www.selwyn.govt.nz/contact-us/helpline.

Stay bright, use your lights!

Daylight Saving ends at 2am this long weekend on Sunday 1 April –

that means it’s going to start getting darker, earlier.

Switch your lights on when driving to make sure you’re visible. The

Road Code says that you must use your vehicle headlights from 30

minutes after sunset until 30 minutes before sunrise and at any other

time you can’t clearly see a person or vehicle 100 metres away.

Using your lights will greatly increase your chances of seeing and

being seen by other vehicles.

With the end of Daylight Saving and winter not far away, we also

want to remind cyclists to check their lights, be bright and be seen

on the road this autumn.

Cyclists are encouraged to have good quality lights that are visible

from 200m at all times, from both the front and rear. It’s also a good

idea to wear bright clothing with reflective material.

It’s important drivers are on the lookout for cyclists, especially when

visibility is poor, around dusk, at dawn and in bad weather.

Commonwealth Games Challenge

Jump and dive into this fantastic opportunity to meet new people,

discover new classes, challenge yourself, set goals, test your

comfort zone and have fun!

Support our athletes during the Commonwealth Games (4–15 April)

and compete in your own Commonwealth Games Challenge at

Rolleston Community Centre, Selwyn Aquatic Centre or Lincoln

Event Centre.

Collect your Challenge card from any of these three facilities and

participate in an exercise class or swim some laps at the pool. Have

all of the nine podium levels signed off by staff and enter into either

the Gold, Silver or Bronze draw to be in to win!

For facility timetables go to www.selwyn.govt.nz.

Note: normal class and pool entry prices apply.

SELWYN TIMES

Getting to know Lincoln High

Lincoln High School has elected its head

students for the year. Ollie Roozen asked

them what they hope to achieve

SCHOOLS

THE HEAD students at Lincoln

High School this year are Petra

Campbell, Gabriel Clarke, Taylin

Smith and Carlito Shalfoon.

They form the student council

which operates under the motto

‘Our School, Our Network’.

How does that link into the

vision you all have for Lincoln

High School, and the work that

you’re doing?

Gabriel: At Lincoln we pursue

unique paths, subjects, and goals,

but we are still all connected via

our school. We hope to improve

and establish the connections

between different areas of school

and our wider community to

create a supportive network.

Carlito: With such a huge

school with a lot of kids and staff

we understood that wasn’t going

to be an easy task.

Gabriel: It involved obtaining

regular input and feedback from

the student body to understand

and appreciate their thoughts

and feelings over topical issues

facing the school, and from

that we’ve created a series of

initiatives lined up to support

this goal.

Petra: The motto ‘Our School,

Our Network’ links into the

vision we have for Lincoln High

School as we hope to improve

the connections both inside and

outside our school.

Taylin: By bringing our

community closer together,

we’re helping students to form

connections with groups and

individuals in the school that

will be able to provide them with

new opportunities so that they

may get the most out of their

time at Lincoln and reach their

full potential.

We’ve also got the student

council, which is comprised of

more than 20 students from 10

sub-councils, each focused on a

particular element of our school.

Taylin: Our vision of building

connections is one that is flexible

enough so that each sub-council

is able to utilise it to inspire their

own goals for 2018, and as a

result, we hope to see networks

formed in all areas of the school

and the wider community. The

motto is a recognition that this is

our school, it is up to us to form

a network that suits us.

Petra: What we aim to achieve

is a diverse and supportive

school environment where

everyone belongs. As Gabriel

pointed out, we have several

initiatives already planned for

REFRESHING: Head girl Petra Campbell, deputy head boy Carlito Shalfoon, deputy head girl

Taylin Smith and head boy Gabriel Clarke.

PHOTO: OLLIE ROOZEN

2018, including an in-school

tutoring system that we then

hope to expand to Rolleston

College.

Could you guys go into

more detail about what that

tutoring system is, and the

effect it will have on our

communities?

Gabriel: This year we’ve

identified a potential need for

a tutoring service for Rolleston

College’s junior students as they

currently lack senior students

to guide them as role models,

and we are speaking at one of

their assemblies in early March

to determine how tutoring may

be implemented there. This

will affirm our relationship and

‘connection’ between Lincoln

and Rolleston and is just one of

the community links we hope to

strengthen.

What led you all to applying

and campaigning for head

student?

Taylin: Throughout my

time at Lincoln, the school has

provided me with so many

great opportunities and support

alongside them, all of which have

enabled me to further myself

as a person and shape who I

am today. It has shown me that

school is more than just studying

for tests. I also love seeing other

people succeed at what they

do. I felt inspired to give back

to school by being a part of

providing new opportunities for

the students and encouraging

them to take them up, so that

they will be able to grow, as I did.

Petra: I think she speaks for all

of us; applying for head student

was an opportunity to give back

to the school.

School’s head students

What are you all most excited

about this year?

Gabriel: We had our first

UNICEF meeting for the year,

where we shared our fundraising

ideas for the future. I’m excited

about the passionate team we

have on board for a third year.

Carlito: I’m really looking

forward to an event the sports

council has planned for later in

the year. I can’t divulge all the

details, but you can be sure it’ll

leave a lasting image on Lincoln

High School. The event is aimed

to bring together hundreds of

people, so we hope it will create

many new networks.

You’ve piqued my interest.

Could you give us a little hint?

Carlito: Record Week. Watch

this space.

It’s great to see that you’re

able to utilise your passion for

sport and link it into your position

as head student, overseeing

the sports sub-council.

Carlito: The court is where

I can escape from all the daily

pressure. I love it.

Petra: The thing I’m most

excited about this year is having

such an awesome team to work

with. This includes the other

head students and the student

council we have backing us. The

council is made up of several

unique, capable individuals who

together are going to have a

great impact on Lincoln High

VISION: The head students use this image to show how all of

the school’s students are connected.

School and I’m looking forward

to seeing what we as a team accomplish.

Taylin: I’m excited in anticipation

of each of the sub-councils

achieving their goals and making

their own impacts on the

school.

Gabriel: I’m also excited to

guide, collaborate and work with

the student council this year

too. We consist of 24 passionate

teens who are all eager to make a

difference to life at Lincoln. Our

meetings are fiery and full on

with such fervent members, but

rest assured; work always gets

done with this eclectic group.

I’m curious; what’s the most

interesting debate the council

has had?

Gabriel: We argued about

the rope that was connecting us

all in the student council promotional

video – some people

thought it was going to be too

difficult to film and organise

logistically, but we decided the

symbolic implications of the

rope were concrete, and precisely

illustrated our aim of enhancing

connectivity.

What are the sacrifices that

you’ve all had to make and

will have to make to fulfil your

position as a head student? Is

there anything you miss doing,

in spite of the fact that you’re

applying yourself to something

greater?

Gabriel: An ongoing struggle

I’ve shared with many members

of my cohort has been to fit everything

into 24 hours in a day.

With rehearsals, shifts, assessments

and meetings, often it can

be difficult to find a moment of

leisure. To overcome this, being

organised is key; setting reminders

on my phone and keeping

up to scratch with my diary

with any spare time I can gather

makes life significantly easier to

juggle. Unfortunately, I’ve had to

opt out of the musical rehearsals

this term to stop me from going

into overdrive.

Taylin: My social life and my

down time is always the first

thing to take a hit when I am

busy. I will probably miss the

ability to be able to catch up with

my friends at morning tea and

lunch. But I have a supportive

family and network of friends

so if I manage myself well, it

shouldn’t be too much of an

issue.

Carlito: My mates keep me

sane as I always know I have

them, and when I’m with them

my time is totally stress-free. As

head students we’re extremely

busy. But it’s a good busy.

Gabriel: Right. Although it

necessitated sacrifices, to be part

of such an invigorated and spectacular

team makes it worth it.

Petra: Time is indeed precious

now, and because of all these

new responsibilities, I’ve found

it hard to spend time with my

friends this year too. To overcome

that, I work to make time

during the week which I can

spend with them. This is important

to me as they are the ones

who will support me through

this year.

What legacy do you hope to

leave behind for future students?

Petra: I want students in the

future to know that you get

out what you put in. I wish to

encourage Lincoln students to

make the most of what Lincoln

has to offer and get involved as

much as you can. The more you

get involved, the better experience

high school will be.

Gabriel: I’d like to leave

behind something both tangible

and intangible. We have initiatives

lined up such as an afternoon

or two where the student

council goes onto the school field

and networks with members of

our school community across

the year levels to connect and

converse, thereby strengthening

our symbolic ‘network’. In terms

of something physical we want to

leave behind, watch this space.

WEAPON: Dan Ede scored twice for Selwyn United on Saturday.

EFFORT: Tom Bryne stretches to keep the ball in play in front of his home

support.

Goals come easily for Selwyn United

• By Gordon Findlater

SELWYN UNITED are quickly

becoming the most entertaining

club in the Mainland Premier

League after two dramatic

matches to start the season at

Foster Park.

THe Stallions have scored

more goals than any other team

after two rounds but have also

conceded more than any other

club.

On Saturday they trailed

MPL champions Ferrymead

Bays 1-5 in the first half. With

just minutes to play they found

themselves with a 6-5 lead before

Michael Forshaw scored for Bays

to level the match in added time.

Bays stormed out to and

early lead with goals to Ciaran

Ahearn, Jordan Halligan, Mark

Peers. Forshaw then grabbed two

goals within a minute. Selwyn’s

Dan Ede pulled a goal back for

the Stallions before Jamie Carrodus

reduced the margin to 2-5

just before the half-time break.

Selwyn continued their fightback

with three goals in three

goals in six minutes to Aiden

Barbour-Ryan, Hami Davey-

Brown and Ede to lock the score

at 5-5. Selwyn took the lead for

the first in the match courtesy of

a Bays own goal.

“We showed them a little bit

too much respect in the first half

and if you show a side like Bays

respect they’ll punish you,” said

Selwyn coach Lee Padmore.

The draw gave Selwyn their

first points in the MPL. However,

the team are understandably

disappointed to have just one

point to their name after holding

late leads in both their opening

two games.

In week one they lead Coastal

Spirit 3-1 before conceding three

times in seven minutes.

“What’s frustrating is that

we’re three minutes across two

games from having six points

and we’ve ended up with one,”

said Padmore.

“It’s something the boys have

got to learn from, to play for the

full 90-plus minutes.”

Selwyn face a double header

over Easter weekend.

They travel to FC Twenty11 on

Friday before returning to Foster

Park to play Nelson Suburbs on

Monday.

MPL round two results:

Selwyn 6 (Dan Ede 2, Jamie

Carradus, Aidan Barbour-Ryan,

Hami Davey-Brown, own goal)

Kaiapoi on

Saturday.

FUN DAY: Children turned out at Lincoln Golf Club for the TEAM

Golf event on Sunday. ​

Fun way for children

to get into golf

CHILDREN HAVE had the

chance to learn golf thanks to

a new initiative by Canterbury

Golf and New Zealand Golf.

TEAM Golf visited Lincoln

Golf Club on Sunday following

visits to Weedons and Tai Tapu

earlier this month.

The events have provided an

opportunity for kids to gain

experience with a shortened sixhole

course team event with the

support of family members as

caddies for the young budding

golfers. Kids aged 4-14 years

have teamed up and enjoyed

the opportunity to make new

friends in a fun and relaxed

environments.

The “It’s Ok” rules provide a

relaxed feel to the event where

it’s all about making golf achievable

and enjoyable for all the

kids involved.

“To provide a fun environment

on the golf course for

kids of this ability is key,” said

Canterbury Golf development

manager Rachel Thow.

“The team environment adds

to the enjoyment with plenty

of clapping and support from

fellow teammates and family

members also playing their part

in the event as caddies.”

The final TEAM Golf event

will take place at Greendale on

April 8.

Long wait for division one win

• By Gordon Findlater

SPRINGSTON had their first

win at division one level in more

than 17 years when they defeated

Kaiapoi 27-24 on Saturday.

Saturday’s win at Springston

Recreation Reserve was the start

of a new era for the club who

returned to the Luisetti Seeds

division one combined competition

for the first time in 17 years.

Springston’s victory was hard

earned. Only once during the

match were the two sides separated

by more than seven points.

With the scores locked at 24

towards the end of the match

Springston first-five Cameron

Powell slotted a crucial penalty

to give his side a 27-24 advantage.

The home side defended their line

resiliently in the final minutes of

the game with Kaiapoi camped in

Springston 22m area.

GAME WINNER: Cameron

Powell’s late penalty kick

helped the side to victory.

“It was a very successful day

for the club and a great boost for

the team,” said Springston club

president Lance Field.

In recent years, Springston had

dominated the Ellesmere division

two competition, winning

the Greg Hill Shield last year and

in 2015.

The colts are also champions,

winning the Tony Lee Shield last

year. However, in the past, some

of those players have moved on

due to the club not having a division

one side.

In other round one results

Waihora were edged by

Saracens 14-16 in a battle

ADVERTORIAL

An emerging Christchurch artist, who has been painting as a hobby for a number of years, is now using her talents to create an exciting new business – May’s Masterpiece. Earlier this year

she launched her website www.maysmasterpiece.co.nz, on which she showcases her artworks and services. May also paints commission works, producing beautiful paintings to client

specifications. Bespoke, commissioned artworks is easy and affordable to obtain; just look at some examples of recent customers proudly showcasing their commissioned work from May:

Susan recently commissioned three pieces of work.

She wanted to give a special gift to two special friends;

one capturing a friends’ unforgettable experience

sledding with snow dogs; another capturing the serene

beachside stroll at Sumner, her friend’s local beach; and

lastly, a piece for herself, capturing the special moment

she caught of her father, her husband, her grandson and

their family dog on camera, walking near their family

bach in Gore Bay. “May is absolutely wonderful! She

has really captured the essence in each painting. I have

never been more pleased than revealing these gifts to

my friends, they were absolutely thrilled,” says Sue.

Matt also commissioned a number

of pieces just before Christmas,

two of which are of his beautiful

daughters enjoying the local café

scene: “I want to give my parents

something really unique and

meaningful for Christmas. They

love spending time with their

granddaughters and trying out

different cafes. We worked with

May and came up with a couple of

paintings that truly captured those

moments, They love it and it looks

really amazing,” Matt said.

Jocelyn is a self-confessed ‘May’s Art Addict’. It all

started when she first commissioned a painting of her

nephew, as a gift for her mum. “The painting of Ashton

on the beach was just stunning,” Jocelyn said. “And

then I wanted one for myself, and as my family grew,

my collection of May’s painting grew as well.” Jocelyn

also commissioned a number of pieces for other family

members as gifts. She says the uniqueness and originality

plus the quality of work beats any other presents. This is

only a small selection of Jocelyn’s collection.

Tina from Leeston had a tough task for May. “I had this

old photograph of my children when they were little,

playing on the beach in Akaroa,” Tina said. “We discussed

a few options and, in the end, May and I decided to focus

on the beautiful hills and the sea, bring out the children

and reduce the pebbles in the foreground.” The result

gave a new lease of life to an old photograph. “I found

May to be a pleasure to work with and she was very

helpful with suggestions throughout the commissioning

process. I am very happy with the completed painting.”

May’s works ranges from traditional and realistic to animated and abstract. What May does best is when a client want a

bespoke artwork, they can take her a picture of something they want painted i.e a special place, a family member or a pet for

example. They can also choose the style they like which they may have come across on the internet, and May can combine

the two. “I want to change the way people typically procure artworks. I want to make it easy and accessible for people to own

original paintings that are beautiful, meaningful and fit for purpose.”

Her website, maysmasterpiece.co.nz, features a selection of her works for sale, which demonstrate her versatility, as well as

testimonials from clients who have had bespoke works painted. She also has a Facebook page, May’s Art.

To discuss your art requirements, contact May on 021 889 397, or email her through her website www.maysmasterpiece.co.nz

Did you know that

chocolate contains a toxic

component, theobromine?

Humans easily

metabolize theobromine,

but the process of breaking

down theobromine in dogs

is much slower. This allows

toxic levels to build up in

the dogs system. If a

dog consumes large

amounts of chocolate,

then theobromine toxins

can cause muscle tremors,

seizures, and an irregular

heartbeat also vomiting, diarrhoea, and

hyperthermia (high body temperature) can

occur at toxic levels.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

Building, showing, buying and

selling hot rods and classic cars

You’ve probably seen it cruising around

Rolleston, Selwyn, and beyond. A bright

yellow ’55 Chevy pickup. It’s hard to miss.

It’s the pride and joy of the fleet at Custom

Made Garage Doors, and the latest in a long

– and it’s really long – convoy of classic cars

and hot rods that have gone through Mal

Hurrell’s many garages.

Mal always had an interest in cars –

driving them, looking at them, thinking

about them, buying and selling them. But

most of all he loves building them. He’s

built a lot of cars over the years, for himself,

for his wife, Jill, for friends, and even for a

few strangers who became friends.

He bought his first hot rod in 1979, a ’39

Chevy. But he sold the wheels off it to get a

deposit for a house. As you do.

For a number of years he dabbled,

built a really successful garage door

manufacturing company, raised a family

with Jill – including, she calculates, as many

as a thousand foster children over their 40

years – but always in the background was

that passion for building, showing, buying

and selling hot rods and classic cars.

“I enjoy the journey of building cars from

scratch to finish,” Mal says. “I’ll take good

care of them for a few years, then let them

go. My passion is always to build another

one.”

Literally dozens of cars, he’s built. Early

on in their marriage he built Jill a ’30

Hupmobile coupe, and at the same time, he

built himself a ’29 Model A coupe, hers in

blue, his in pink. Go figure.

Later on he built her a ’27 roadster, which

they then sold on to be raffled. Someone

bought if for eighteen bucks! But perhaps

the sweetest of many stories is that Mal was

able to buy it back many years later, and

give it to Jill as an anniversary present.

When Mal started his own Garage Door

business in 2001, he built a ‘54 Chevy pickup

and painted it bright yellow. It was the

flagship for his business. He eventually sold

it, but just last year he decided to get another

bright yellow pickup for the business – and

his hobby. This one came from LA in 2017.

He spent some time sprucing it up, put the

Custom Made Garage Doors branding on

it (subtly) and now proudly drives it to

shows, burger runs, hot rod breakfasts, and

anywhere else he can.

Mal’s living the dream, he reckons. The

business is going well; the kids are all doing

well and are an important part of his life;

could be that Mal has a bit more time to

build some more cars.

It’s addictive, he says. “If I didn’t have a

car in the garage, I’d be pining like a lost

puppy.”

Looking in Mal’s garage, there’s not much

chance of any pining happening soon.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Do you know what to do if you

are involved in a car accident?

Assuming, and hoping, that you are okay, there

are some practical things you should do.

Usually, the question enters your mind

immediately after you’ve been in a fenderbender.

But that’s too late. There are nine

tips listed on R O Jones Panelbeaters’

website, plus some facts you should know

about getting your car repaired.

After checking everyone is okay, did

you know it’s a good idea to make a quick

diagram – or take some photos - of where

everyone is seated, and of the direction of

the cars, and where they ended up. Such

details can easily be forgotten, but may

prove important later. If you can, look at

the other driver’s license, and make a note

of the number.

The tips and facts on R O Jones’ website

is valuable information. When it comes to

repairing your car, they are dedicated to

fixing it correctly and quickly. That’s their

promise.

Owner, Scott Jefcoate runs R O Jones at

107 St. Asaph Street in the city. Three years

ago, he also purchased Laycock’s Collision

Repair at 17 Epsom Road, and he now runs

that business, too. Both shops are operated

with the same philosophy.

A Rolleston local, he’s been in the auto

body repair business since he left school. At

just 24 he purchased R O Jones, and now

provides quality repairs and service, factory

quality painting, and high-end custom and

restoration services.

They also repair campervans, caravans,

boats, truck cabs, fleet vehicles and more.

R O Jones and Laycock’s are proud to

be the preferred repairers for St. John’s

Ambulances. Scott and the team know

that fleet vehicles especially, but all clients,

need to be back on the road again, so turnaround

times are kept to a minimum.

“We try and make everything as easy as

possible,” Scott says.

The secret to the quick turn around?

“Planning. Making sure everything is ready

to hit the ground running the day your car

turns up here.”

Insurance claims are no problem. The

team at R O Jones and Laycock’s will

manage the process, providing quotations

and comprehensive information to all the

major insurance companies, making the

process stress-free and easy.

Organic Compost

Add the Bark

Intelligro’s Organic Compost is made on our site, blended from

sustainable and natural products, with no green waste or soil

added. We carefully monitor our process to create this product and

take pride in the end result.

Our Organic Compost is designed to improve the overall quality of

your soil. It does this in a number of ways:

✓ Improves moisture retention, reducing water loss especially during

the warmer weather

✓ Adds vital nutrients to the soil

✓ Improves and stabilizes pH

✓ Improves drainage and reduces erosion

✓ Conditions the soil to create a healthier growing environment

✓ Helps to create a more even soil temperature

All of these things help to create the best growing environment for

your plants. The great thing about compost is it will also work to

remove any pollutants that are already in your garden – pretty clever

really! Also, due to its organic properties, you can feel safe knowing

that there is nothing harmful in this product.

Once you have given your garden a good boost of nutrients with

products such as our Organic Compost, Blood and Bone and

fertiliser, you will want to add some bark in preparation for the

winter. A good 10cm layer of bark will help to protect your plant’s

roots from the cold weather, keep a more even soil temperature

(which plants like) and it will aid in suppressing the weeds. Intelligro

manufacture all their barks and mulches on site, they are carefully

monitored for quality and then stored under our covered bins. Our

friendly team are happy to help you work out how much you need,

and what product best suits your area.

• By Henri Ham

IF YOU like a bit of colour and

fragrance in your garden and your

home, then look no further than

sweet peas.

These lovely flowers are super

easy to grow, they smell great and

they look lovely outdoors or in a

vase.

Some varieties include dwarf

mixed, fragrant beauty and cut

flower mixed. All smell lovely,

but fragrant beauty has a stronger

smell. And all can be grown for

cut flowers, but the cut flower

mix will produce more blooms on

longer stems.

Lastly, as you’d expect, the

dwarf variety doesn’t grow as tall

as the other two – it only grows to

30-40cm which makes it perfect

for growing in borders, bedding

and pots.

The other two varieties grow to

around 120-180cm and, like most

sweet peas, need something like

a wall or trellis to trail and climb

over.

When you’ve got your seedlings

you need to find a place to plant.

As mentioned, sweet peas grow

well in pots – particularly the

dwarf variety which don’t require

staking and will cascade over the

edge nicely. The other two varieties

will also grow well in large

pots. You’ll Urban just need Section

to tie four or

five bamboo stakes into a tee-pee

shape to support the plants as

they grow. And make sure you

plant them in some good quality

potting mix to really help them

along their way.

If you’re growing in the garden,

all you need is a sunny, welldrained

spot next to a wall or some

sort of support structure. Add

some netting, wire or light wooded

frame for the flowers to climb up.

Plant the seedlings about 20cm

apart from each other. And don’t

hold back. The more you plant,

the more colour and fragrance

Gardening

• By Henri Ham

WHAT’S IN a name?

I enjoy it when a plant has an

interesting name or a name that

makes complete sense for it.

Love in a mist, carolina reaper

and canterbury bells are just

some of the plants which have,

what I consider to be, intriguing

names. But none of those names

come close to the newest variety

of lettuce seedlings – drunken

woman (fringed head) lettuce.

How on earth did it get that

name? Obviously, I’ve done a

quick google search, and I’ve also

asked around, but I haven’t found

a concrete answer yet.

What I have found, is that it’s

an incredibly popular variety

of lettuce to have in the garden.

Many people have said it’s their

absolute must-grow variety

because it’s easy to grow, tastes

good (sweet rather than bitter)

and, importantly, is slow to bolt.

Drunken woman is an Italian

heirloom variety of lettuce that

produces attractive bright green

leaves with ruffled (almost frizzy)

edges in a deep bronze colour.

The definition of what an

heirloom variety is, is a hot topic

of debate. But, generally it means

that the plant variety is openpollinated

and that the variety

has been around for 50 or more

years (some say it must be over

100 years).

And what does openpollinated

mean? This usually

refers to seeds/plants that use

the birds and bees to naturally

pollinate and will ‘breed true’ – ie

produce plants roughly identical

to their parents.

When it comes to planting

drunken woman lettuce, just

grow it like you would your other

varieties.

That is, plant it in well-drained

soil in a sheltered spot and space

each seedling around 20cm

apart.

In around four to eight weeks

you can expect your lettuce to be

ready to harvest.

Like many other gardeners

these days, I like to just

pick the leaves I need

from the outer edges

and leave the plant

growing in the garden.

Oh, and don’t

forget to watch out for

slugs.

SHELTER: Plant

your lettuce

seedlings 20cm

apart.

Checklist for selling your home

Make small fixes

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes, and

correct the flaws that are most egregious (if

affordable) or can be relatively easily fixed—

from repairing cracks in the walkways to

repainting dingy walls or oiling creaky hinges.

Select the best real estate agent

For a commission, an agent will take care

of many details you may not want to be

bothered with (placing ads, fielding calls,

making signs, etc.) and bring experience to

the table. To find a good one, ask friends and

relatives, then interview several candidates.

Set a price

A real estate agent will give you a market

analysis free of charge or commitment.

Ask a few to get a broader picture of the

market. Then decide whether you want a

quick, easy sale or the highest possible price.

Selwyn Times

Clean & declutter

Weed out excess furniture, knicknacks, and

“stuff” so the house seems more spacious and

buyers can imagine themselves in it.

Stay vigiliant about maintenance

Keep the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed,

gardens weeded, rooms spotless and clutterfree.

Ready your home for open days

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh

flowers or bowls of fruit, bake a batch of

cookies for the homey smell, open the drapes,

keep pets out of sight.

Decide whether to do your own building

inspection

It may save you time, especially with older

homes, to identify—and potentially solve—

problems your buyer’s inspection will

discover later.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Flushing in the 21st century

Pop Quiz: When was the first flush toilet used?

We don’t often think too much about

them. We like to make up neat names for

them. The Privy Council; The Supersitty;

The Study. In Maori it is the wharepaku. If

you are old school it’s the WC. Perhaps it is

being a little squeamish about such things,

but often the toilets are overlooked when

buying a house, or simply considered

mundane necessities when renovating.

But as with everything else, toilets have

evolved, and should be given dutiful

consideration. After all, they are heavily

used in every house.

The concept of the toilet has been

around a long time, and in some respects

has not changed. Waste goes in and is

flushed away, to be forgotten by most.

Innovations, however, roll on and the

humble lavatory has adapted to human

advances and needs.

Simple adaptations such as comfort

height toilets make life easier. These are

toilets up to several centimetres higher

than conventional ones. Even such a

small height increase greatly increases the

ease and comfort of use for the elderly,

pregnant women, and anybody with back

or leg/knee problems.

Whether an S-trap or a P-trap toilet

(you must check which you have if you are

renovating as each is plumbed differently),

the general design and shape of the bowl

has improved sitting comfort. Softclose

lids are quiet and convenient.

If you are not connected to a septic tank

or sewerage main, waterless toilets are

an option. They save on water and turn

waste into compost. They require a lot of

maintenance, but are the longdrop of the

21st Century. See www.smarterhomes.org.

nz

With everything from phones to cars

getting smarter, smart toilets were bound

to happen. They include features such

as touchless flushing. The toilet either

senses when you have moved away, or

incorporate a hand wave sensor. Some

use a remote control that can be operated

by smart phone. Most are self-cleaning.

Integrated bidets with air drying sensors

are common, as are sensors to warn

of potential problems such as tank

leaks. Heated seating, nightlights, and

even Bluetooth sound systems are also

common.

Smart toilets require installation by

qualified professionals, plumbers and

electricians.

You may not require a

Hundertwasser style toilet in

your home (but wouldn’t that

be fun?), but you will want

something efficient, functional, and

aesthetically matched to the décor.

From transparent seats complete with

goldfish to wall hung machines more

technically advanced than any other

appliance in the house, toilets have

come a long way.

And the first flush toilet?

Primitive versions, using

a drainage system rivers,

date back 5000 years!

Modern toilets similar to

ours were used by Queen

Elizabeth I (16th Century)

and were in common use

after that.

Four things you MUST

do before buying a home

Buying a home is a big deal. It’s likely to be the most expensive thing you buy, and it can be a complicated legal

process. It’s even tougher in a hot market, where there is a lot of competition for a limited number of properties. It

might be tempting to take a few shortcuts, but failing to do things properly could cause more problems later.

Here are our top four tasks for home

buyers.

1. Research the property

The real estate agent selling the property

acts on behalf of the seller, however they

are also required to tell you everything

they know about the property. They

must respond professionally to all your

enquiries and not withhold any details.

Remember that you still need to do your

own due diligence. That means getting

a title search so you can find out all the

facts about the property’s ownership,

boundary and access, as held by Land

Information New Zealand (LINZ). It’s

a good idea to get a Land Information

Memorandum (LIM), which shows

information held by the local council

about the property and land. For valuable

feedback on the property’s condition, get

a report done by an inspector who has

professional indemnity insurance and

carries out their work in accordance with

the New Zealand Property Inspection

Standard. Although this all costs money,

it will save you more in the long term.

Sellers may occasionally provide some of

this information for you. If this happens,

check that it is up-to-date.

2. Get legal advice

Buying property is expensive, and it can

cost even more if something goes wrong.

That’s why it’s important to get legal

advice before you sign anything. A lawyer

will handle all the paperwork involved in

the process, including the title search, and

offer impartial advice. If you don’t have a

lawyer, the New Zealand Law Society can

help you find one at propertylawyers.org.

nz.

3. Understand the sale process

There are several methods of buying and

selling property, for example, tender or

auction. It’s important to understand the

process for the property you are buying.

Practices can vary between agencies so

make sure you confirm details with them.

The Home Buyer’s Guide at buyingahome.

reaa.govt.nz has more helpful advice.

4. Read the sale and purchase agreement

and understand what it means

The sale and purchase agreement is your

contract with the seller. It is crucial to

read it very carefully and get legal advice

before you sign. You can negotiate the

terms and conditions of an agreement,

but once you sign it, there’s no going back.

Show homes

the ultimate way to shop around

Across the selwyn district, we are blessed with an

extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle, featuring all the

latest in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you ;will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get

a good idea of pricing, discover good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long-term returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check

out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.

Marketing your property –

what does it mean?

Marketing a property is more than presentation and advertising.

Conceptually, marketing is identifying

what prospective buyers are looking for

then providing this. For example, larger

homes and sections may appeal more

to families. Young couples starting out,

generally have tight budgets leading

them to smaller properties, while older

people may be looking to downsize.

Brand new has a particular appeal

however there will always be a market for

established homes. Having a picture in

your mind of the type of buyer will help

in determining the features to emphasise.

If repairs and maintenance need to be

carried out before putting the property

on the market, seek the advice of a real

estate agent. They can advise on what

tasks are worth completing and what

might be unnecessary expense.

Installing a new kitchen or changing

the carpet may lift the house but will

the expense be recouped in the sale

price? On the other hand, modernising

an outdated kitchen or bathroom could

make a huge difference to the look of

the place. Avoid going overboard unless

the capital value of properties in the area

justifies this.

Real estate agents are in contact with

prospective buyers so aware of what they

are looking for. Draw on their expertise

and advice to help make the most of the

selling opportunity.

Establishing a relevant and fair price

for a property is important. Most

agents calculate this based on the price

properties in the area have sold for, and

what a particular property has to offer.

A unique or exceptional property may

justify a higher price, though run-down

properties can gain more than they

appear to merit. This might be due to the

area or other factors that suggest a good

investment.

When promoting a property, mix it up

and be creative so your property stands

out from the rest. TradeMe is a must;

checked by most people looking to buy.

Present the features the property offers as

benefits to potential buyers.

Erect a sign outside the property.

People stop and look at photographs and

this might spark sufficient interest for

them to visit an open home. Spending

a fortune on massive advertising

campaigns in every media might seem a

way to attract potential buyers but may

be an unnecessary expense without the

return. A better philosophy could be a

little often. This will depend on the value

of the property, your budget and how

best to reach target buyers.

Buyer perception is also significant.

For example, properties that sit for a

while can become stale. Resting the

property by taking it off the market for

a short time, then relisting perhaps in

spring or when sales in the area appear

to lift a little, can make a difference.

However, if a property does not sell

immediately there is no need for panic or

dropping the price. It may simply be that

the right buyer has not yet come along. If

the mix is right your property will sell.

Buying a property?

Get a building inspection

Would you get a mechanic to inspect a

used car before you bought it, or would

you just get a mate who knows a bit about

cars to take a look? Prospective property

buyers face a similar conundrum – do

they pay for a building inspection before

making an offer, or just ask a builder

friend to check the place out?

Buying a car is worrisome enough,

but the emotional and financial stakes

are a lot higher when it comes to buying

property. If you’re going to make a serious

investment in something that will have

a huge impact on your family’s health,

wealth and wellbeing, it pays to get the

best advice you can.

Ideally, this means engaging a building

inspector who can identify significant

defects, future or urgent maintenance

issues and problems caused by gradual

deterioration. They will look for structural

problems, any evidence that the property is

a leaky building, issues caused by deferred

maintenance (such as weatherboards

rotting due to peeling paint) and areas

where there is damp or mould. This is a

visual inspection – a building surveyor will

check in the ceiling and under the floor,

but they will not cut holes in walls or carry

out any other invasive testing. The whole

property should be checked, including

fences and any garages or sheds. They will

collate their findings in a detailed and

easily understood report.

Getting a good property inspection

Selwyn Times

carried out isn’t cheap though, particularly

if you’re unsuccessful in buying and have

to repeat the process. You have a range of

choices, from enlisting a builder mate to

using a qualified and insured inspector.

You can also make an inspection a

condition of your offer on a property.

If you choose this option, the report

must be prepared by a suitably qualified

building inspector in accordance with

accepted principles and methods. If you

then use the report’s findings to get out of

the contract, you must provide the seller

with a copy of it. Either way, the more

you invest in this exercise the safer you

will be if things don’t turn out as you had

expected.

The property pre-purchase inspection

industry is not regulated in New Zealand,

however the Real Estate Agents Authority

(REAA) recommends using a qualified

building inspector who has professional

indemnity insurance, understands the

strict legal requirements of their role and

carries out their work in accordance with

the New Zealand Property Inspection

Standard. This is important because they

will help protect you if something goes

wrong later on. If you discover problems

with the property that should have been

evident in a building inspection, you can

make a complaint to the professional body

that the inspector belongs to and seek

compensation through the courts.

If you buy a property based on a report

by someone like a builder mate who is

unqualified and/or uninsured, you could

end up owning some expensive problems.

Even worse, you may severely limit your

ability to seek damages if the property has

significant issues that would have been

picked up by a more thorough inspection.

You have limited other avenues if

things don’t turn out to be how they were

represented to you. You may be able to

rely on the warranties included in the sale

and purchase agreement by the seller. They

are required to confirm that (among other

things) any work they have done on the

property was carried out in accordance

with any necessary permits or consents

required by law. You may also have other

legal options which you should speak

to your lawyer about. REAA strongly

recommends that you speak to a lawyer

before you sign the sale and purchase

agreement to understand this more.

If you are looking to buy it’s a good

idea to get in touch with a local building

inspector as soon as you start your

property search. Ask friends and family

for their recommendations and request

a sample report from any inspector you

contact to get an idea of the kind of

information they provide. Real estate

agents can sometimes offer building

inspection reports to prospective buyers

on behalf of vendors. Treat these as a

starting point rather than a definitive

diagnostic guide to a property.

Paying for your own report means

you know the credentials of the person

who prepared it, you can be sure of its

impartiality and you can seek redress if

needed.

Depending on what a building

inspection finds, you may be able to

use a report to help you negotiate with

the vendor over price or repairs. Even

if a report only finds minor issues, you

can still use it as a road map for future

maintenance. Knowing what you’re in for

is invaluable when you’re buying property,

no matter how many times you’ve done it

before.

The New Zealand Institute of Building

Surveyors and the Building Officials

Institute of New Zealand both hold lists

of qualified property inspectors. See

buildingsurveyors.co.nz or boinz.org.nz

for more information.
