Decision to

chlorinate

Malvern

water

supplies

upsets

residents

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RESIDENTS ARE unhappy

with the district council’s

decision to permanently

chlorinate two key water supplies

in Malvern due to the risk of

contamination.

The district council has

confirmed it will chlorinate the

Sheffield-Waddington and Malvern

Hills Hartleys Rd water supplies in

July and August.

Malvern Hills Hartleys Rd

supplies Coalgate, Glentunnel and

Whitecliffs.

The district council’s water

services asset manager Murray

England told Selwyn Times

pipe breaks, backflow, illegal

connections and reservoir failures

in the supplies had led to the

chlorination.

He said the district council has

written to users of both schemes

informing them of their intention

to permanently chlorinate the

water supplies.

THERE’S A classic tale in the Our

People profile on Ellesmere Camera Club

president Triena Graham (see pages 12-13).

It involves a photography shoot at a

wedding, during which the groom had

rather too much to drink.

He wouldn’t be alone there, I suspect.

Triena and others had to try and prop the chap up so the

obligatory wedding photos could be taken.

Things went from bad to worse for the groom and he ended

up behind bars for the night.

As for the bride, obviously angry and embarrassed.

On pages 8-9, Wayne Stack looks at the district’s war history

Tyre recycling plant mooted

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A LARGE-SCALE plant

designed to break down endof-life

tyres could be built in

Burnham.

Eneform Ltd is seeking to

undertake pyrolysis activity

on 183 Burnham School Rd

in a bid to combat ongoing

environmental issues caused by

end-of-life tyres.

The district

council

will make

a decision

at its public

meeting today

over whether

it supports

Craig Watson

leasing its

land at Pines

ENVIRONMENTAL: A plant designed to break down end of

life tyres could be built in Burnham to combat environment

issues.

Resource Recovery Park for the

operation.

It has been considering

leasing the land in a publicly

excluded forum for several

months. It comes after Fulton

Hogan ran a operation of a

small scale experimental tyre

pyrolysis plant at its Pound Rd

Quarry in Islington which was

deemed successful.

Pyrolysis technology is used

to break down waste materials

such as tyres and convert them

into saleable oils and gases.

The process involves the rendering

of shredded tyres under

heat in the absence of oxygen.

A report from Eneform Ltd

said it is not a combustion

process, but rather an anaerobic

decomposition process.

The heat required to extract

these products will be generated

by burning gas produced by the

plant.

While pyrolysis has been

around decades, it has grown

over the years in response to the

need to find an environmentally-appropriate

management

regime for end-of-life tyres.

Currently the tyres are

landfilled, exported as waste,

stockpiled or used as

silage cover in the agriculture

industry.

The potential environmental

impacts of tyre leachate includes

contamination of soil,

surface water and groundwater.

The closest dwelling is about

400m from the pyrolysis plant

site with the next closest

being 800m from the boundary

of the site.

The district council has met

with the closest neighbour,

nearby pre-school Blossoms

Educare and has contacted

West Rolleston Primary School.

An air discharge consent for

the activity was also required

from Environment Canterbury.

ECan’s resource consent

requires the noise to comply

with a 80db rating, air particles

to be collected by a baghouse

extraction system and fed into

the pyrolysis process.

In a report, the district council

said it was satisfied that there

is little to no risk to nearby

residents in relation to odour,

noise, dust, or emissions.

District councillor Craig Watson

said while he initially had

concerns over the new plant,the

district council has received a

lot of reassurance over emission

and noise.

“The reality is we need to

do something about the major

problem with used tyres being

stockpiled causing major environmental

issues.

In February about 500 tyres

ignited on a property near Amberley

causing thick plumes of

potentially toxic black smoke to

be seen several kilometres away

from the blaze.

“We can’t say send it somewhere

else . . . we need to do

something in New Zealand,” Cr

Watson said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

TAVERN BREAK-IN

Two cash tills were stolen from the

Dunsandel Tavern last week after

two burglars levered their way

through a door. The burglary happened

at 2am on Friday. There was

about $150 in each of the tills. Police

believe the burglary is potentially

related to an ATM which was later

smashed in Yaldhurst at about 4am

the same morning. Constable Herb

Inwood said while police have video

footage of the incident, they do not

have any leads at this stage.

TEMPLETON SIGNS

The city council has asked

Templeton residents to only display

one “no quarry ” sign on their fence

or property. Although the signs

comply with the District Plan,

displaying more than one breaks

the rule. However, the city council

is not enforcing this yet as it is

“still working to achieve voluntary

compliance.”

Mayor Sam Broughton will be visiting

some the district’s cafes to give

Chlorination of water supplies

•From page 1

“Council wants to make sure

everyone has safe drinking water

. . . the decision was made on

public health risk,” Mr England

said.

But residents have been left

unhappy and are opposing the

decision.

Chief fire officer Neville Croy

said he knew nothing about

it and wants more questions

asked over why

it needs to be

done.

“Just in case

something

might happen

isn’t a reason to

do it because the

water is really

Kerry Pauling

nice,” he said.

Glentunnel

Township Committee

chairman Reg Anderson

said he wouldn’t be happy if the

water was permanently chlorinated.

“If they get a hiccup, we get a

call, we boil our water for a few

days and then start again and

never had any problems . . . why

they are doing it now? I don’t

know, they don’t need to.”

The district council is currently

consulting the community on

universal chlorination across

Selwyn for its Long Term Plan

2018-2028. As part of the plan,

the district council is proposing

to budget $6 million to extend

UV treatment to all drinking

water supplies between this year

and 2021.

Chlorination of Christchurch’s

water supplies started last month

due to the need for engineers to

fix vulnerable well heads.

Malvern Community Board

deputy chairman Kerry Pauling

said the issue will be discussed

at the Sheffield-Waddington

Community Committee meeting

tomorrow.

“I think it is a wee bit over the

top, they probably should have

consulted first,” Mr Pauling said.

But district councillor John

Morten said the district council

had no choice but to add chlorine

to the water supplies to get the

water to a guaranteed safe quality.

“It would be better for people

to get a smell of chlorine and be

uncomfortable than basically go

to a funeral,” he said.

Emergency chlorination was

Wow Your Mum

added to the water supplies after

E. coli was detected in the supplies

last month.

Mr Anderson said he was going

to ring the district council and

ask if it “minded putting more

water in the chlorine because,

boy, it is strong”. He said the

emergency chlorination has gone

on for weeks, and there is still a

small amount in the water currently.

Both water

supplies are currently

undergoing

ultra-violet

light treatment.

Mr England

said UV only

treats the

water when it

enters the supply

network; it does John Morten

not treat water

once it is in the reservoirs and

pipes.

“There is always potential for

contaminants to get into the

water reticulation system, for

example through pipe breaks,”

he said.

No fix for roads near pie shop

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LONG-STANDING roading

issues are unlikely to be fixed

outside The Famous Sheffield Pie

Shop.

Nearly a year ago, the community

was calling for the road layout

close to the shop be changed

before an accident happened.

It asked for the New Zealand

Transport

Agency and

the district

council to

change the

layout of State

Highway 73,

Loretta

Paterson

Duke and

Vogel Sts.

Concern was

raised that a

growing number of cars and

trucks were parking “dangerously”

outside the shop.

The Sheffield Waddington

Community Committee previously

asked for “no parking” on

the left side of SH73 travelling

west between Malvern Hills Rd

and the pie shop.

But NZTA senior traffic and

safety engineer David Scarlett

said while there was some initial

discussion on managing parking

off SH73 it had not heard any

more from affected parties.

Other suggestions were lowering

the speed limit from 70km/h

to 50km/h and making adjacent

street, Duke St, one-way with

vehicles exiting via Vogel St.

While the speed limit will not

be lowered, NZTA has plans to

install new speed threshold signs

which draw attention to the

existing speed limit.

Pie shop owner Loretta Paterson

said she was told by the

district council the money was

not there to upgrade Duke St

and most likely won’t be in the

future due to other priorities.

Mrs Paterson said it would be

nice to have the potholes fixed

and some kerbing put in place

along Duke St.

“It is either that or we pay for

Duke St to be upgraded ourselves

and for us that is a lot of

money, and a lot of pies we have

to sell to be able to provide that

sort of money,” she said.

It comes as the pie shop

recently had a resource consent

approved to extend its bakery.

The shop is transforming its

to do,” she said.

Leeston loses its

Westpac ATM

• By Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

LEESTON HAS lost its

Westpac ATM because of a drop in

use.

But Westpac customers will be

able to use the township’s BNZ and

Kiwibank ATMs without incurring

a fee.

A Westpac spokeswoman said a

lack of patronage led to its removal

from High St last week.

Leeston residents expressed their

disapproval on the Leeston/Southbridge/Ellesmere

CommunityPage

Facebook site over the lack of

consultation over the removal of the

machine.

A Westpac spokeswoman said the

ATM was removed from Leeston

as part of a regular review of its

network.

The nearest Westpac ATMs

are located in Lincoln and Rolleston.

District councillor Pat McEvedy

said he is disappointed the machine

was removed.

“Any loss of service in Ellesmere

concerns me, or Selwyn for that

matter.

Leeston resident Myles White

said if it is not economical, it is not

economical.

“We are going cashless now so I

can understand why they want to

take it,” he said.

A NEW safe-speed camera

will go live at Leeston Rd in

Springston this week.

Leeston Rd is among 33 locations

across the country where

new digital cameras are being

installed as part of the third

phase of the $10m static camera

expansion programme, announced

in July 2013.

Static safe-speed cameras

have not been operational in

Christchurch since before the

earthquakes.

The new safe-speed camera

will start operating this week to

ensure safe speeds and reduce

deaths and injuries on the

roads.

It is the first of two cameras

that are being installed in

Selwyn.

Another static safe-speed

camera is currently in the testing

phase on State Highway 1.

Road policing operations

manager Inspector Peter Mc-

Kennie said road crashes have

devastating impacts on families

and communities.

Sites receiving new cameras

have all been identified as having

a high crash risk based on

detailed analysis by independent

traffic experts.

“We know from international

experience that safe-speed cameras

have an impact on slowing

people down to safer speeds,

and that’s what we want,” Inspector

McKennie said.

“This is why we’re placing

safe-speed cameras at this and

other sites, to encourage people

to reduce their speed, which in

turn helps reduce deaths and

injuries on our roads.”

Inspector McKennie said

that while some people believe

camera infringements are about

revenue collecting, they are not.

Police don’t retain the money

from camera infringements, it

goes into the Crown’s consolidated

fund.

The expansion programme

will continue to be backed by

other measures, including a

highly visible police presence on

high risk routes.

Remembering the sacrifices of

Due to strong public interest after the Rolleston 150 th celebrations in 2015, Selwyn district

councillor Jeff Bland and Wayne Stack, a historian who also works 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 with suggestions for future features should get in touch with

Mr Stack on 021 119 9107. This month, he looks at the impacts of war on the district

Our Great

history

WITH WAYNE STACK

ALTHOUGH Waitangi Day is

officially New Zealand’s national

day of celebration, arguably it is

Anzac Day that truly brings us

together as a nation.

In 20th-century New Zealand,

few families escaped being

affected in some way through

sacrifice in some form as a result

of the World War 1 and 2, and

to a lesser degree, the conflicts in

Korea and Vietnam.

Most had a family member

who served in the wars or knew

of someone who was part of our

country’s military contribution

to them.

Everyone who served overseas

during these wars was affected

by them; whether through being

killed or wounded, or suffering

psychological effects from

combat experience.

These shared experiences and

loss crossed social class and

racial boundaries.

And it is now, more than

ever, that the importance our

military heritage has played in

forming our national character

and international reputation

– based on the sacrifice of

volunteer and conscript citizensoldier

servicemen and women

– is being recognised and

understood.

The district has in the past and

continues to play an important

role in New Zealand’s military

heritage.

Burnham Military Camp is

the largest New Zealand Defence

Force base in the South Island

and will become the largest

in New Zealand with planned

expansion over the next five

years.

The camp currently also

includes the Regimental History

Centre; the only museum in

BACK IN TIME: Items which belonged to the Canterbury Regimental Band are on display at the Regimental History Centre at

Burnham Military Camp.

the South Island dedicated

to preserving the history and

providing education about the

volunteer corps and citizensoldiers

of the South Island

territorial regiments.

After the withdrawal of the

British Army from New Zealand

in 1870, there was no standing

professional army in the colony.

The defence of New Zealand

was then reliant on protection

from the Royal Navy and

numerous corps of armed

citizen-volunteers.

These volunteers were

motivated by desires to defend

their families and property, and

there were social, economic

and recreational opportunities

provided through volunteer

service.

Commissioned officers of

each local corps were elected

annually and usually came from

the professional classes, wealthy

landowners and businessmen

who employed many of the

volunteers.

As a whole, the volunteer

force lacked professionalism and

uniformity.

With only limited training,

the corps remained little more

than military social clubs

focusing on musketry drill and

horsemanship.

The district had four volunteer

corps: the Malvern Mounted

Rifles, the Ellesmere Mounted

Rifles, the Waimakariri Mounted

Rifles and the Ellesmere Guards

Rifle Volunteers.

These local corps were all

established around the period

of the Boer (1899-1902), when

British imperial martial fervour

was at its height.

The Ellesmere Mounted Rifles

was the first formed in August

1898, with its headquarters at

Leeston.

In 1900, it had 85 members

and later formed C Company

of the 1 st Battalion of the North

Canterbury Mounted Rifles.

The Malvern Mounted Rifles

(based at Waddington) and

the Waimakariri Mounted

Rifles (based at West Melton)

were both established in April

1900.

By 1903, the Malvern Mounted

Rifles, which formed as D

Company of the 1 st Battalion,

North Canterbury Mounted

Rifles, had 77 members, while

around the same time, the

Waimakariri Mounted Rifles,

which formed E Company of the

same battalion, had 76 members.

Khaki-coloured jackets and

trousers was the common

uniform among these mounted

rifle corps, with the Ellesmere

Mounted Rifles having green

facings on the jackets.

The experienced horsemanship

of the young farmers and highcountry

shepherds within the

district made them ideal material

for volunteer mounted soldiers,

with a number volunteering

to serve in the New Zealand

contingents which fought in

South Africa during the Boer

War.

The Ellesmere Guards Rifle

Volunteers was a small infantry

corps established in 1900 with its

headquarters at Doyleston.

Less fashionable than the

Mounted Rifles, by 1902 the

corps had 59 members and

later formed as L Company of

the North Canterbury Infantry

Battalion. The uniform

consisted of khaki jacket and

trousers, along with a field

service cap.

In 1910, all the remaining

volunteer corps within the

district were transferred into

the newly-formed Canterbury

Territorial Force regiments

which proved more effective in

preparing volunteers for active

service in World War 1.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Selwyn families in wartime

The Leeston and Sheffield

domains were used at this time

as venues for annual training

camps.

The Ellesmere Mounted

Rifles established a rifle range

near Hart’s Creek, which was

named ‘Taiaroa Range’ after Mr

H Taiaroa, who had provided

the land, and there was fierce

competition between the local

corps for musketry prowess.

Under the 1909 Defence Act,

all able-bodied men aged 18-25

had to serve in the territorials,

where compulsory military

training promoted greater

efficiency and ensured New

Zealand could provide a sizeable

volunteer expeditionary force

when World War 1 broke out in

1914.

The numerous war memorials

throughout the district are

permanent reminders of the

service and sacrifice that many

young men from the district

made during the conflict.

The Burnham Camp provides

the district with an ongoing

connection to our military past,

present and future.

The camp site initially housed

an industrial school for children

(equivalent to a modern borstal)

which was established in 1873

and closed in 1918.

The first Territorial Annual

camp was held at Burnham in

1918 and the site was purchased

from the Education Department

in 1920 for the establishment of a

permanent army camp.

Both loved and hated by the

47,000 South Island citizensoldiers

who trained there

for overseas service during

World War 2, as well as more

than 35,000 who trained there

under the post-war compulsory

military training schemes (many

serving in Korea, Borneo and

South Vietnam), it is a place

that has moulded characters

and created memories of

comradeship and sacrifice.

It was only after World War 2

that New Zealand established a

regular professional army, with

HISTORICAL: A diorama of the World War 1 western front

trench at the Regimental History Centre.

Burnham being the primary

military establishment in the

South Island.

This also shaped the character

of the district, especially

Rolleston, which has effectively

become a garrison town due to

the number of military families

living there.

A memorandum officially

recognising this relationship

between the district and the

New Zealand Defence Force was

signed last year.

Within the camp, the

Canterbury Regimental History

Centre celebrates and preserves

the heritage of our citizensoldiers.

Historical taonga, such as the

bass drum of the Canterbury

Infantry Battalion which was

used to carry bandages ashore

at the Gallipoli landing and the

Charles Upham VC collection,

are preserved and displayed for

prosperity.

The centre has engaging

displays and a growing

collection, but limited public

access to the camp means that

viewing can only be conducted

by appointment.

COURAGE: The Malvern Mounted Rifles would train at the

Sheffield Domain.

In an effort to ensure our

military heritage remains in

the South Island, discussions

are currently under way

between interested parties to

have the collection transferred

to a purpose-built location in

Rolleston for the establishment

of a Citizen-Soldiers Museum,

unique within New Zealand

and a tourist attraction for the

district.

Donation helps pupils be seen

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HIGH-VIS fluorescent vests have

been given to a primary school in

Rolleston to ensure its pupils are

seen on the roads during busy

peak hour traffic.

Professional Christchurch Ltd

licensed agent Sean Powell and

licensed real estate salesperson

Anna James donated 500 fluorescent

vests to West Rolleston

School last week.

The school is considering making

the vests a compulsory part

of its uniform when pupils are

travelling to and from the school.

Mr Powell said he and

Mrs James approached several

schools in Rolleston about

sponsoring the vests, and West

Rolleston took them up on the

offer.

The idea was inspired by

Lincoln Primary School, which

currently has school vests, where

Mrs James’ children attend

school.

Mr Powell and Mrs James

both have long associations with

Rolleston, having sponsored

recent initiatives including the

Clearview Primary School fair

candy floss stall and the Selwyn

School of Dance end-of-year

production.

“We love working in Rolleston

and believe that it is also important

to give back a little to the

community and this was our way

BRIGHT: Pupils Sean Powell and Anna James from Professional Christchurch, with pupils

to do that,” Mr Powell said.

He said safety around schools

at drop-off and pick-up times is

an important topic and they are

proud to be able to promote traffic

safety.

“We are proud to be able to

help the children at West Rolleston

stand out a little bit more and

be noticeable at these crucial and

potentially dangerous times,” he

said. Both Mr Powell and Mrs

James specialise in residential

sales in Rolleston and greater

Selwyn. The donation of vests

will remain available to other

schools in Rolleston.

Scholarship

awarded in

honour of late

Lincoln student

THE UNTIMELY death of a

former Lincoln University student

was commemorated last week as

the first recipient of a memorial

scholarship in his name graduated

with a degree in winemaking.

Katrina Jackson received the

Nikolas Dow Memorial Scholarship

in 2014 and gained a Bachelor

of Viticulture and Oenology

at Lincoln’s graduation ceremony

on Friday.

Nikolas Dow, known as Niki,

graduated five years ago with his

own BVO after coming to Lincoln

from Auckland’s St Kentigern

College. He had been working in

2013 at a vineyard in Portugal,

where he and another winemaker

were tragically killed in a car

crash.

Friday’s event was made all the

more poignant for Katrina by the

presence of Niki’s parents, Maria

and Clive Dow, who flew down

from Auckland to see her receive

her qualification.

“It’s so exciting to have them

here to celebrate with me,” Katrina

said before the ceremony.

Triena Graham

Behind the lens of Ellesmere’s

The Ellesmere

Camera Club is the

only group in Selwyn

registered with the

Photographic Society

of New Zealand and

has been running since

the 1950s. Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

spoke to the club’s

president – Leeston

resident Triena Graham

CAPTURE: Triena

Graham has a passion

for photography and

took on the role of

Ellesmere Camera Club

president last year.

How long have you been in

the camera club?

Seven or eight years. It is kind

of one of those things you get

into and you don’t notice the

time moving. The start of last

year I became president. I was

the competition co-ordinator for

about five years and so president

is quite different. I am really

enjoying the challenge of taking

the club and we are trying to

move into a new direction. For

quite a while the club’s focus has

been competitions. That is great,

we learn a lot from entering

competitions and we get outside

judges to judge our work, but last

year, at the end of the year, we

were asking what else members

wanted out of the club. A lot of

the answers were more fun trips,

a lot more opportunities to use

the camera within the group

rather than doing it on our own.

This year we are looking at more

trips – day trips, fun activities

– and trying to tie it in with our

competitions as well. One of our

trips will be to a local graveyard.

We are going to bring some

lights down and, hopefully, everyone

will get some really good

photos with the moon and the

graveyard.

Do you have any trips

planned further afield?

Yes, again at the end of May

we are looking at a trip up to the

St James Walkway and we will

make it that people can choose

just a day trip. But we will also

look at getting accommodation

at the Boyle for those of us

who maybe want to make it an

overnighter.

Where are the best places in

Selwyn to take photos?

Taumutu Beach. It is about

16km past Southbridge and

it is very stony. It goes down

to the lagoon, which then of

course the Rakaia River comes

out at. It is quite rocky, you get

some tremendous large waves.

That is quite moody and can

be dramatic. I will head out to

New Brighton or Sumner. It is

not quite Selwyn, but you know.

The Port Hills are amazing to

get shots across the plains and

get beautiful sunsets. There is so

much bush and just that natural

beauty going up there.

What is your favourite photo

that you have taken?

I have got a few. I did this really

nice one off Banks Peninsula

looking out at Lyttelton and

Diamond Harbour. It had just

rained and there was a half rainbow

and the sun was setting. The

colour is a really deep gold and

this little half rainbow is slithering

out over the hills.

What do you prefer to

photograph?

I actually really love getting a

group of people, getting a whole

lot of props and creating stories.

One of my favourites was we had

to do photography inspired by

an artist and I did a photoshoot

based on Jack Vettriano. He did

some amazing paintings in the

1920s. He had his subjects in ball

gowns and tuxedos dancing on

the beach, or having a dinner

party. One of my favourite photoshoots

was trying to recreate

some of those images. If I am not

going all out with props, makeup

and costumes, I really like

macro. I am not so good with

people unless it is telling a story.

I am not great at just straight out

portrait type work.

What are the other members

of the group like?

We are quite a small group

which is really nice. We are all

very informal with our club

nights. We are really lucky. We

don’t have super massive egos

within the club. With anything,

if you get the bigger clubs you

quite often do have those sort of

stronger personalities coming

through, but we love chocolate

biscuits, we love a laugh.

Do you have a favourite trick

as a photographer?

It’s hard. What I want to say

is it is not so much about your

camera or your processing

equipment. But it is more about

the person and what they see and

how they see things rather than

all the gear and stuff we have.

Sometimes, when you are first

starting out, as long as you have

got the ability to see something

slightly different from how others

might see it, that will take a

great shot.

Have you had any photo

disasters?

My daughter also does photography

and we did a friend

of a friend’s wedding. It was

pretty bad because the groom got

totalled and so we were trying

to hold him. We got members

of the group to hold him so he

looks awake and upright. We

quickly took photos in the settings

and then lay him down. He

was vomiting and it was pretty

messy. It was very frustrating.

camera club president

BEAUTY: A sunset over Banks Peninsula is one of Triena Graham’s favourite photos which she

has taken. (Right) – Her photo of dancers on a beach was inspired by Scottish painter Jack

Vettriano.

Then we also had to be almost

like camp mum. We were then

hugging the bride and telling her

it is okay and working through

her grief and drama. Out of

probably 500-600 photos I think

we had about 60 that worked.

That was really bad for them

because they didn’t have a lot.

There was a lot of post-production

as well. Just hours and hours

spent trying to remove the hand

of the person holding him up. At

least they got 60.

Are they still together?

I’m not sure. I know that the

end of the night ended up with

him jail for the night. I have no

idea. They are not local. It was

uncomfortable for everyone.

What would be your most

successful moment as a

photographer?

The most sort of ‘wow’ moment

for me wasn’t last year but

the year before. I had a very successful

audio visual slide show

I submitted for the Ellesmere

Camera Club competition. A

couple of the club members who

enter into the national competitions

of various forms were really

pushing me to put it in to the

national competition run by the

Photographic Society of New

Zealand. I put one I did a year

earlier as well. I got a merit and

commended. For me that is huge.

I always look at my work and go

“it is not that fantastic”. And I

certainty wouldn’t have put it in

if the other club members hadn’t

pushed me and kept emailing me

going ‘come on have you done

it yet?’ I was really grateful for

them. In their belief in what I

had done. It comes down to telling

stories. That was in 2017.

What photographic themes

did you have in your entries?

It was a love story told by feet.

Every image was pretty much

from the knees down telling

a love story. I managed to tell

a whole story from when the

couple met, to a couple of dates,

being proposed to, having a

raunchy night and getting married

all in the audio visual. That

was set to Josh Groban’s Romeo

and Juliet, which is just beautiful.

The second one I did which got

the honours, it was based on

music by Evanescence’s Whisper.

For me it was quite different –

stepping out from my comfort

zone. It was a lot darker, a lot

more depicting mental anguish

and the loss of someone you love.

For me, it was quite dark and

worked in with the song really

well.

Have you got any exciting

projects coming up?

I have got a couple I have got

to work on for this year’s audio

visual competition. One I haven’t

really nutted out yet. It will be

using angel wings I have made.

They won’t be white and fluffy.

I am going to spray paint them

with bits of grey and red, striped

with bits of black. I am hoping

to get a male and female and use

the wings to somehow come up

with a story. I am still looking for

inspiration. The other one is going

to be a love story again. But I

really want to do the homosexual

side of love stories. I have got the

song to that. Looking forward to

putting it into place. The music

is The Neighbourhood’s Sweater

Weather. I want to push the boat

a little bit by depicting a homosexual

relationship. For me,

pushing my boundaries, pushing

how I see things and twisting

them a bit.

What makes the Ellesmere

Camera Club special?

We are quite unique, we

are quite small. Last week, we

actually had an amazing guest

speaker – Carl Street. He travels

all over the world. He came

last night and we were so lucky

to have a look of some of his

amazing iceberg photography

from Greenland. We put it in the

paper. We actually got some people

coming from Lincoln. They

were like, it is really cool to know

there is something in the area.

I understand you quite

like making people feel

uncomfortable through your

work? How did you work that

out?

I think after I did the dark one

with Evanescence’s music. When

it finished the whole club just sat

in total silence for 2min. I really

love the fact they were thinking

about it, they were absorbing it

and each of them kind of took

their own take on it. They had

memories of anguish or grief

and were putting their own kind

of thoughts on what I had done.

I thought ‘wow, I actually like

rocking the boat a bit’.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Misbehaving, anxious children result

Kids born after the

2011 earthquake have

inherited trauma

through DNA from their

parents, and schools

are dealing with more

behavioural issues

as a consequence.

Brittany Keogh reports

CANTERBURY children born

after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake have inherited

trauma from their parents

through their DNA – similar to

what can happen to children of

war veterans, experts say.

That, and the ongoing trauma

experienced by children born

before the quake is contributing

to a spike in young people

seeking mental health treatment

for a range of conditions and

behavioural problems, including

anxiety and concerning sexual

behaviour.

Nearly 3100 new cases of

children and youth under the age

of 18 were referred for mental

health treatment through the

Canterbury District Health

Board last year, new data shows.

That figure was the highest

in more than a decade and had

been steadily climbing since 2011

when it was 1510.

Harith Swadi, clinical director

of child, adolescent and family

specialist mental health services

at the CDHB, said medical practitioners

were still dealing with

the effects of trauma more than

seven years after the devastating

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

As well as being triggered by

direct experience of a major

traumatic event, chronic stress

could be passed on to the future

children of adults who lived

through traumatic events by

changes to DNA known as epigenetics.

“The earthquake’s effects are

likely to stay with us for the

foreseeable future; possibly for

generations, just as those effects

experienced post-war,” said Dr

Swadi.

Several studies in the United

States and Australia have shown

some children of Vietnam War

veterans have inherited posttraumatic

stress disorder from

their parents.

That is because of epigenetics,

which is essentially how people’s

lifestyles and experiences change

how their genes are expressed,

turning off some genes and turning

on others.

Dr Swadi said older children

who lived through the 2010,

2011 and 2016 earthquakes

that ravaged the Canterbury

region were also suffering

from ongoing, but manageable

earthquake-related fears and

trauma caused by environmental

and lifestyle changes.

“The earthquakes have

changed many aspects of daily

life in the form of parents’ distress,

lack of certainty and EQC

and insurance issues. The fabric

of society here in Canterbury has

changed and it is more stressful

for many people,” Dr Swadi said.

“Children, as a result, suffer.

They have new worries and have

fewer supports from the adults

around them. They become more

insecure and more anxious.”

Anxiety often affected children’s

behaviour and led to

emotional difficulties and school

and relationship problems.

Stop, a Christchurch-based

organisation that helps people

struggling with concerning

sexual behaviour or who have

sexually abused others, has seen

a sharp increase in referrals to

its programme for

primary and intermediate

schoolaged

children.

In 2007, nine

children were

treated through

the programme.

James

Morris

Last year, 58 kids

under 12 sought

help from Stop.

TROUBLED: School principals have noticed “increased

prevalence of anxiety and behavioural issues in children since

the quakes.”

Demand for Stop’s adolescent

and adult services, however, was

static.

The organisation’s services are

available to people in Nelson,

Dunedin, Christchurch and

Invercargill but most clients are

from Canterbury.

Suzanne Alliston, team leader

of Stop’s children’s services, said

while exposure to easily accessible

online pornography had

contributed to the rising number

of kids needing treatment, the

earthquakes had also had a significant

impact.

“Sexualised behaviour in children

can be seen as one way of

coping with hard feelings. It’s not

related to sex as much as it’s related

to an unhealthy expression

or way of not coping,” she said.

“Kids might be acting out at

school – kicking, punching,

destroying property – or they

might be engaging in sexualised

behaviour and often the reason

for those things are very similar

and anxiety is a part of that.”

James Morris, chairman of the

Secondary Principals’ Council

and principal at Darfield High

School, said Canterbury school

principals had noticed an

increased prevalence of anxiety

and behavioural issues in children

since the quakes.

“The stress or anxiety plays out

in different ways in different students.

It’s not necessarily that a

student is cowering in the corner

or anything like that. Sometimes

that anxiety plays out in the way

that they behave or engage with

their work.”

Young people who were in

pre-school or just starting

school during the 2010 and

2011 earthquakes were now in

year 6 to year 9 and, along with

usual challenges that came with

transitioning from primary to

secondary school, they had to

deal with earthquake-related

post-traumatic stress.

A 2016 university study of

young children in Canterbury

concluded that children who

started school after the earthquakes

had significantly more

behavioural problems and PTSD

symptoms than children born

pre-quake had at the same age.

Prime Minister Jacinda

Ardern announced in February

the Government would roll out

a $28 million mental health

programme for Canterbury’s

school children during the next

three years. The funding would

be put towards ensuring every

child had access to a mental

health worker.

Mr Morris said schools in

the area were working with

the CDHB and Ministry of

Education to develop strategies

to support communities and

ensure the education and health

sectors and families were using a

consistent approach to deal with

mental health issues in children

and young people.

Tevaga looking forward to

return home with Warriors

WHEN THE Warriors play

the Manly Sea Eagles in

Christchurch on June 9 it will

be a homecoming for Jazz

Tevaga, who first experienced

rugby league with the Burnham

Chevaliers.

The Warriors hooker knows

he will have to bring a lot more

gear than he would usually take

to away matches. “I am sure the

cousins will be hitting me up

for some Warriors gear,” laughs

the 22-year-old who was born in

Christchurch and spent his early

years in Rolleston.

Tevaga’s first footy memories

are from frosty early morning

sports fields at Burnham

Military Camp watching his

dad in action and putting on the

colours of the Chevaliers.

Even though the family moved

to Palmerston North, the ties

with Christchurch remain tight.

“My mum’s family is still

down there, so every visit to

Christchurch is special to see my

grandma and to catch up with

my cousins.”

Asked how the Warriors have

changed their fortunes this

season, one word keeps coming

back – trust.

“The club has some new faces

in the playing roster and the

back room staff, but there has

HOMECOMING: Warriors hooker Jazz Tevaga was introduced

to rugby league by the Burnham Chevaliers.

been a huge shift in the level of

trust amongst the players,” said

Tevaga.

“We got a few things off our

chest that were getting in the

way last season and we all just

trust each other not to let the

team down.”

One of the Warriors mottos

is to take the current success

one week at a time, but Tevaga

already has one eye on the

fixture in Christchurch against

Manly.

“I played in Christchurch

against Penrith two years ago

and it was an amazing night, so

hopefully the stadium will be

packed again.”

That match in 2016 was

his first time back after the

earthquakes and he admitted

that it was quite emotional to see

the damage.

“Especially seeing the

Cathedral was really sad.”

Tevaga says he noticed the

progress in the city when he

visited last year for a junior

clinic with the Halswell Hornets

and is keen to see how the city

continues to bounce back.

“And, of course, it will be

special to play in front of all my

family down there, because they

will all be there.”

Douglas wins in Thailand

LINCOLN KARTER Jacob

Douglas claimed a win and

second in two major races in

Thailand last week.

Douglas, 12, was invited to

attend the meeting at Pattaya’s

Bira Kart Circuit, in

south-west Bangkok, by

members of the Thai team

he met at the 2017 ROK

Cup international meeting

in Italy in November.

He first contested the

Mini ROK class in the

second round of the kart

championship at the

Thailand meeting. He was

fastest in the warm-up

before winning the heat

race then coming back

from finishing a close second in

the pre-final to win the final after

a spectacular last corner pass.

Douglas then contested the

opening round of the ROK Cup

Thailand series which proved

a slightly harder nut to crack.

However, after qualifying fifth he

worked his way forward to finish

the final in second.

The Mini ROK final at the ROK

Cup Thailand meeting was won

by top local driver Sitarvee Limnantharak

of the Singha Maxima

team. Douglas was accompanied

on the trip by his father

Craig Douglas and longtime

mentors Matthew

and Tiffany Hamilton

from Christchurch’s

WKS kart shop.

“It was a really good

experience for him. The

organisers were kind

enough to lend him a

kart,” said Mr Hamilton.

“Jacob got in a lot of

laps and got to work on

a few different scenarios.

He was really quick in the wet.”

Douglas won the 2017 New

Zealand Vortex Mini ROK title

and is awaiting the decision of an

appeal after crossing the line first

in the title race this year before

being disqualified following a

protest from another driver.

Darfield edge out newcomers

SPORTS

• By Gordon Findlater

DARFIELD HAVE remained

unbeaten and at the top of

section B in the combined

country competition after being

put to the test by newcomers

Springston.

Last year’s Ellesmere

runners-up Darfield were heavy

favourites on paper, but after

the 17-10 win they believe the

new boys in division one can’t

be taken lightly.

“We were certainly surprised

by their results coming into the

game,” said Darfield coach Alex

Robertson.

“We know why now, though.

They’re a very determined team

and will cause a big team an

upset at some stage.”

Darfield knew they were in

for a game early and held a 10-5

advantage at the break with

tries to winger Sheldon Reed

and fullback Alex Parker, while

centre Michael Sheenan crossed

the line for Springston.

Darfield seized the initiative

early in the second 40 with a

another try to Parker to make

it 17-10.

However, when Springston

No 8 Sean Powell crossed the

line with 15min remaining the

contest was in for a nail-bitting

finish.

The visitors held on, denying

Springston what would have

been a remarkable win.

However, Springston coach

Anton Sutherland says his team

were very encouraged by the

result.

“This game was always

going to be the biggest test

to see where we are at,” said

Sutherland.

We’ve got a very confident

team following the result. We

felt we dominated possession,

but Darfield were incredibly

structured and pounced on our

mistakes, so we will take some

learnings from that.”

Sutherland also admits the

team has had to readjust

their goals this season after

wins over Kaiapoi and Southern

and a tight 29-34 loss to

Rakaia in their opening three

games.

Springston’s Antony Robinson fends off Sheldon Reed as he looks

for space.

Long-Term Plan looks at safe water supplies

What are your thoughts on whether chlorination should be considered as an option to protect the safety

of drinking water supplies in some parts of Selwyn?

As part of its Long-Term Plan, the Council is seeking feedback on whether to introduce chlorination to

some community water supplies.

Providing our communities with safe drinking water is a top priority for the Council. Across our 30

water supplies we currently use a variety of water treatment methods including secure ground water,

Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection, selective abstraction and filtration, and chlorination.

Following the Government’s inquiry into the Havelock North drinking water contamination, the Council

has accelerated its programme to install UV treatment on secure bores. Consideration is also being

given to chlorination, to provide additional protection.

Chlorine provides residual treatment in the water reticulation system which UV does not provide,

minimising the impact of any contamination which may enter the system. It is widely used in New

Zealand and is already used on several supplies in Selwyn.

Although the Government’s position on chlorination is

not yet known, the Council is seeking comment from

the community on options for introducing chlorination to

community water supplies. These are:

1. Introduce chlorination for supplies which would receive

greatest benefit, based on a risk assessment

2. Introduce chlorination for all Council water supplies

3. No additional chlorination

The cost of water treatment is funded by the districtwide

rate paid by all properties on a Council supply. The

proposal to introduce limited chlorination, as in option 1,

would increase the rate by $10.

To find out more about this issue, and other proposals in

our Long-Term Plan – and to share your views – visit

A reader responds to an

article in Selwyn Times

on a new working group

which will be set up to

help restore the Selwyn

River/Waikirikiri

Pat Palmer – The Selwyn

River is not short of reports,

plans and studies from committees.

It is short of water.

Two or three cusecs (a unit

of flow equal to one cubic

foot per second) of Rakaia’s

surplus via the Central Plains

irrigation canal could give it

a permanent flow along most

of its length. A benefit to

everyone.

Transport plan won’t ease ‘pressure’

Selwyn MP Amy Adams

writes about the impact

the Government’s new

transport plan will have on

the district

THE PRESSURE on our state

highway network was evident

over the Easter weekend.

Sadly the Government’s subsequent

announcement of its transport

plan offers little hope of any

improvement to this situation.

In its announcement, the

Government indicated that it

plans to cut $5 billion from the

state highway construction programme

over the next 10 years.

What this means locally is

that a planned upgrade to State

Highway 1 between Ashburton

and Christchurch proposed by

National before the last election

is highly unlikely to go ahead.

This roading project would

have improved safety, created

jobs and allowed more efficient

transportation of goods and

people around our region.

Even more concerning is that

local motorists will be stung at

the petrol pump with an annual

increase in petrol tax each year

for the next three years, resulting

in a price rise of about nine to 12

cents per litre.

For those living in the regions

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

ROADING IMPACT: Amy Adams says a planned upgrade

to State Highway 1 between Ashburton and Christchurch is

unlikely to go ahead under the Government’s transport plan.

and travelling significant distances

each day, this will mean a

noticeable increase in their costs

of transportation.

Struggling working families

living in the outer suburbs of

Auckland will be even harder hit.

This is because Aucklanders

will be paying an additional 10

cents per litre under the regional

fuel tax legislation the Government

introduced recently.

SELWYN TIMES

These increases also have GST

added to them, resulting in a

potential total increase of up to

25c per litre.

Of course, when fuel prices increase,

the cost of transportation

rises so prices increase for goods

and services.

Weekly grocery bills will

go up, hurting those who are

already struggling to make ends

meet.

So if fuel taxes are increasing

and funding for regional highways

is decreasing, where is all

the money going?

The Government has indicated

that it intends to allocate $4

billion over the next 10 years

to “rapid transit” or light rail

projects.

The Government has stated

that it hopes to start building a

light rail or tram route from the

Auckland CBD to the airport

and then wants to expand this

system to other areas such as

West Auckland.

There has been some talk of

a Rolleston to Christchurch

rail link. However, the reality is

that if Auckland’s underground

rail system is also to be funded

from the $4 billion allocation for

rapid transit, there is unlikely to

be much left over for light rail

anywhere else.

AT 1MM long, thrips are very tiny insects

which can be seen with the naked eye but

are best observed under a microscope.

Thrips can vary in colour from pale

yellow to black.

Adults have two pairs of narrow wings

with long hairs, making them look like

feathers, but when not flying, the wings

are folded away on their abdomen.

Young larvae don’t have wings, but

mature stages of larvae may have wing

buds.

More than 6150 species are known in

the world.

New Zealand has more than 140

species, with only 50 of these being

endemic (not recorded elsewhere).

Darfield

aircraft and

benefits

St John,

fire brigade

THE SHEFFIELD Volunteer Fire Brigade

and St John have benefitted from the

Wings & Wheels fundraising event.

About 1000 people turned out for the

annual aircraft and car show in Darfield

recently.

The day featured cars, motorbikes, aircraft,

a virtual reality firefighting simulator

and a children’s evacuation tunnel.

Thrips often pierce plant tissues and

suck the contents, but other species may

feed on fungi, pollen or even mites or

thrips.

In New Zealand, the onion thrips

(thrips tabaci), the western flower

thrips (frankliniella occidentalis) and

the greenhouse thrips (heliothrips

haemorrhoidalis) are probably the worst

pest species.

Some thrips are plant virus vectors.

These viruses are transferred while

feeding. Other thrips can spread fungal

spores which can be a problem on

orchard crops.

On the positive side, some thrips do

provide pollination services for plants.

Chief fire officer Neville Croy said

while he was happy with the day, overcast

weather and Saturday sport led to a

smaller turnout.

He said it is unlikely the event will be

held on a Saturday again as a result.

“We have got the right idea for fundraising

. . . we have just got to get mother

nature to play the game,” he said.

continuing education

Learning happens

at any time and a

good discussion

helps it happen

Lifelong Learning is not just about older

people learning. It is about good discussion,

taking risks and accepting new challenges

and opening your mind to new ideas. At any

age.

I sit in my office and listen to a group

discussing a wide range of issues in the next

room. Some of their viewpoints I agree with

and some I don’t and I can tell that they do

not all agree with each other. So they discuss

intently then they laugh and have lunch

together. They continue to sort out the world

and issues as far apart as Use of Technology,

Autonomous vehicles, Importance of Art,

Relevance of religion, Veganism, City

transport, Competition in sport, The moral

maze etc.

Kazuko has just completed a series of 3

sessions transforming a room into a place

to absorb Japanese culture while in another

a group discuss “Arguments, Fallacies and

Trickery”. Why can some people argue really

well and others cannot?

Dairy company

to double

manufacturing

capacity of

lactoferrin

Synlait Milk has secured a multiyear

lactoferrin supply agreement

that will underwrite an investment of

approximately $18 million to double

lactoferrin manufacturing capacity at

Synlait Dunsandel.

“Lactoferrin is a high-value, specialty

ingredient used in a range of nutritional

food products around the world. This

agreement is a major step forward for our

growing lactoferrin business and delivers

to our strategic commitments,” managing

director and CEO John Penno says.

Lactoferrin is an iron-binding protein

recognised for its anti-bacterial and antiinflammatory

properties. As a naturally

occurring milk protein, it is commonly

used in infant formula products throughout

the world.

“We’re deliberately building our

lactoferrin business with stable, longterm

growth in mind. This agreement

is a major step forward in this direction

and continues to build our credibility as

a producer of specialty dairy nutrition

ingredients to world-leading nutritional

companies,” Mr Penno says.

“Our investment decision to double

our lactoferrin manufacturing capacity

is underpinned by three factors:

a strengthening global market for

lactoferrin, growing internal demand for

our own infant formula manufacture and

a secure portfolio of reputable lactoferrin

customers,” he says.

Synlait observed in their FY18 interim

results that a demand and supply

imbalance is driving global strengthening

of lactoferrin prices and demand is notably

driven from increasing use of lactoferrin in

infant formula, particularly in China.

The expansion to Synlait’s lactoferrin

facility is expected to be completed by

October 2018.

“As a specialty ingredient, lactoferrin

commands a much higher price per

metric tonne than many other dairybased

ingredients. This is because of its

unique functional properties, as well as

the complexity of production processes,”

group category manager Dr Elizabeth Reid

says.

Dr Reid adds Synlait’s unique production

processes, experience making lactoferrin

and access to a range of laboratory and

technical expertise makes them one of

the few producers in the world offering

reliable access to significant quantities of

infant nutrition-grade lactoferrin.

“It’s a coveted position we’ve worked

towards since we started producing

lactoferrin in 2014. Our growing customer

base use lactoferrin in a range of products

from health supplements to infant

formula,” says Dr Reid.

In April 2017 Synlait became the second

company in the world to receive a GRAS

(Generally Recognised As Safe) notice from

the U.S. Food and Drug Administration

(FDA) to export its lactoferrin to the

United States for use in infant formula and

toddler formula.

Carpet your house

SELWYN TIMES

Before

without leaving home

Recarpeting your home may be one of

the biggest undertakings homeowners will

make when it comes to updating the décor.

It’s one thing to view carpet and hard

flooring samples in a shop; it’s another to

have the samples brought to you where

they can be viewed in your own home,

surrounded by your own furniture and

colour schemes.

That is the advantage Harrisons Carpet

brings to the market. Their mobile carpet

retailers work flexible hours to bring to your

home a wide range of flooring samples.

For five years, Amanda Wilson has owned

and operated Harrisons Carpet Canterbury

Country, covering the Selwyn District.

Together with

her genuine

interest in

her clients,

Amanda loves

what she does.

“It’s a real

privilege to be

invited into

people’s homes,” she says, “and the trust

they put in me.”

Initial fact finding is done over the phone,

or online at the Harrisons website (www.

harrisonscarpet.co.nz), and a mutually

convenient time is scheduled for Amanda

to come to you. “I’ve grown to really enjoy

the Selwyn District. It’s a beautiful office to

work from.”

With laser technology and smart

measuring devices, quoting is a simple,

quick process that is done on the spot for

you. Carpet is chosen, arrangements are

made to move furniture – you can do it

yourself, or Harrisons offers a competitively

priced service – and the installation takes

place, usually over no more than one or

two days, as quickly and conveniently

as possible. Fully qualified, professional

installers are used.

As part of her service, Amanda

is available to offer advice and tips,

suggestions on décor, and you have the

satisfaction knowing you are buying from

a local business owner.

There is a wealth of information on the

Harrisons website, including detailed

profiles of the flooring products available,

Gutter Guard

protects

your home

Gumleaf is the national supplier of Gutter

Guard. This expanded steel mesh product,

attaches to existing gutters and the roof to

stop leaves and debris from clogging up the

guttering.

It’s generally in Autumn that homeowners

are reminded about blocked gutters and

down-pipes. Falling leaves are the number

one problem, but there are a host of other

issues to consider. Birds nest in the roof

cavity, sometimes gaining access through

the spouting; rats and mice get in there,

too, and can cause a lot of damage. Gutter

Guard protects against these nuisances

getting easy access via the guttering. It

can also strengthen the guttering during

snowfalls and stormy weather, and can be

fitted to any roof type.

Leaves can sit in standing water in the

gutter, rot, and this can damage them. You

can clean out the gutters several times a

year, or you can give Rohan Rudd a call. He’s

the owner of Gumleaf, and is the go-to guy

for Gutter Guard. Phone calls go directly

to him, he is involved in the process from

beginning to end, including the quote, the

installation and any maintenance and aftercare

issues. Rohan makes himself available

to clients six days a week and whenever

possible to offer advice and discuss all

requirements.

Produced from the same material as

Colour Steel roofing, Gutter Guard is

durable and comes in the same range of

colours which can be matched to the colour

of your roof. For homes and businesses

situated near the beach, Gutter Guard can

be powder coated.

Gutter Guard is available for DIY. It

can be purchased from Gumleaf and an

installation guide can be downloaded at

www.gumleaf.co.nz

Heating your home

A warm, dry home is essential for comfort and

good health. There are a number of ways to heat

your home, depending on a number of factors.

Good insulation greatly increases the

efficiency of any heating system, and

ventilation is an important consideration. It

is recommended that living areas are kept at

approximately 18 degree Celsius. Bedrooms

can be slightly less, but temperatures below

12 degrees can disrupt sleep.

Heat pumps are generally the most

common and cost-effective form of

home heating. They heat quickly and are

convenient, however, they don’t work when

electricity is not available. Ducted heat

pumps are becoming more popular, and

are cost-effective, especially in new builds,

but can also be installed into established

homes.

Gas heating is common and convenient.

Flued gas heaters are best, as unflued

and portable gas heaters produce lots of

moisture and emit pollutants that can

be unsafe. They are fast heating and are

relatively inexpensive to run. However, gas

is not a renewable resource, and prices can

vary widely. Central heating systems can

be zone controlled and provide warm air

circulation.

Modern wood burners are generally very

efficient. Wood is a renewable fuel, and if

you have a cheap or free supply, a wood

burner may be the least expensive heating

HALF PRICE

DOUBLE GLAZING!

option. Flues need to be cleaned regularly,

and older models can contribute to air

pollution and violate air quality regulations.

Pellet fires are typically more efficient

than wood burners. Some use a battery

backup so they are not necessarily

dependent on electricity being available.

These, too, must comply with regulations.

Consult www.mfe.govt.nz to see details

about the regulations.

Harnessing the sun is the most

environmentally friendly way to heat

your home. “Passive heating” combines

insulation with good design, accomplished

more effectively in new builds, but able to

be incorporated into existing homes. There

is a wealth of information online as passive

heating becomes normative in the design

and building industries.

All these heating options require

installation by qualified professionals.

Selwyn has a number of businesses

who are able to do installations, and

service and maintenance checks of your

existing heating method, including Juice

Electrical (www.juiceelectrical.co.nz),

and Laser Electrical Rolleston (www.

Laserelectrical.co.nz). Kiwi Gas (www.

Artisan landscapes

with vision

Sharon Crofts happily accepts the label

of artisan. She studied horticulture at

Lincoln University, and then Landscape

Technology. Since graduating she’s been

plying her craft in a number of iterations,

including her own business, Sharon Crofts

Landscape Design, based in Tai Tapu.

Landscape design is an art. “You have

to have a vision,” says Sharon, “and then

you have to be able to relay that vision to

your clients.” Sometimes clients need some

inspiration, some advice, or some direction.

Sharon will offer all this and more.

Whether a landscape project is small

or extensive, Sharon and her team can

incorporate your ideas, and will work with

you as little or as much as you require in

the process. Sharon has trusted contractors

who intuitively understand her vision and

make it a reality in a timely and professional

manner. Or if you intend to undertake

the work yourself, engaging Sharon’s help

at the initial design stages can result in a

professional look even on a modest budget.

Initially, there is a consultation where

some brainstorming takes place, and a

design concept takes shape. The design

process is flexible, it is possible to plan

the project to happen in stages, and there

are many options to suit most budgets.

Services include design concepts, planting

proposals scaled details and elevations, and

project management.

“Garden spaces tend to be getting smaller,

so it is important to utilise the space you do

have,” advises Sharon. Indoor outdoor flow

is also a consideration for landscaping.

“Perhaps it’s a courtyard or patio area,

and the choice of plants is also crucial. New

cultivars are being developed constantly,

some ideal to accommodate smaller spaces.

“Trees, shrubs and ground covers with

improved attributes such as compactness,

longer flowering periods, more resistance

to pests and diseases and less need for

trimming, enable greater choice.”

Whether you have a new or existing

home, Sharon recognises the importance

of an outdoor environment for adding

and maintaining the value of your home,

whether it’s to have a relaxing backdrop to

entertain, play with the kids, or just chill

with a beverage after a long day.

Water your garden from your phone

For nearly 25 years Phil Hudson has

been installing and servicing irrigation

systems. In 2004, he purchased Freeman

Irrigation and has since grown the business

significantly. With projects such as the

Pegasus Town lake front, Izone Business

Park, Dakota Business Park and SB

Logistics at Christchurch Airport and in

subdivisions in Rolleston, Prebbleton, and

many more large scale installations, Phil

and his team of five are suitably experienced

to take on any project, big or small.

Based in Rolleston, Freeman Irrigation

also specialises in installing and servicing

residential and lifestyle block irrigation

systems. They service existing systems,

and have good working relationships with

landscapers and lawn specialists, such as

Canterbury Lawns.

There are a number of benefits to installing

an automated irrigation system into either

your new build or existing yard. These

systems save water by irrigating at the right

time of the day; they save money in terms

of convenience and time management; they

add value to your home; and ultimately

they are better for the environment as they

use only the right amount of water.

Even better for the environment, and the

health of your yard and gardens, is having

a rain sensor attached to your system. As

the name suggests, these wireless devices

measure the amount of rainfall on any given

day and alter the scheduling and output

of the irrigation system accordingly. This

saves more water, no sprinklers turning on

automatically in the pouring rain and saves

your lawn from over-watering.

Rain sensors are relatively inexpensive,

and are easy to install. Irrigation systems

can be controlled completely from your

phone or tablet using smart technology.

Now is a good time to consider having

an irrigation system installed. This time

of year the ground is softer and installing

now means the system will be well ready

for spring. On existing lawns, Phil uses a

vibrating mole plough, which reduces the

amount of damage done to the lawn. Instead

of digging a trench, the mole plough cuts

a thin line in the grass and pulls the pipe

behind it. The pipe is installed underground

with minimum effect to the grass.

For all matters regarding the

installation and servicing of irrigation

systems, contact Phil at Freeman

Irrigation on 0800 22 33 92 or via

Perfect perpetual spinach

• By Henri Ham

DID YOU know perpetual spinach

isn’t even spinach?

In fact, it’s actually related to

silver beet and is sometimes also

called ‘leaf beet’. Though if I had

to describe how it tastes, I’d say

it tastes similar to spinach but

with a slightly

milder, more

bitter taste.

But the

main reasons I

think perpetual

spinach is a

perfect plant

to have in

the vegetable

garden, are because it grows

quickly, it doesn’t take up much

space, it’s full of vitamins (like its

namesake and relative) and it’s

very easy care.

If you’re planting members of

the brassica family this autumn

– like cabbage, cauliflower or

broccoli – your perpetual spinach

seedlings could be planted

around 20cm apart from each

other in the rows in between.

Because they don’t take up

much space and mature quickly,

you’ll have eaten them before

your slow-developing brassicas

need the room.

Regardless of where you plant

them, it pays to mix in some

EASY CARE: Perpetual spinach grows quickly and tastes great

in salads.

general fertiliser and/or compost

into the soil first to give them a

good kick start and ensure the

soil is well-drained. If you don’t

have much space you can easily

grow it in pots – just put in some

fresh potting mix before planting.

In around four to six weeks

the leaves on your perpetual

spinach will be large enough to

harvest. I recommend picking

the outer leaves first, leaving the

inner leaves intact so the plant

keeps producing.

I like to use the small leaves in

salads and use the larger leaves

(with a slightly more bitter taste)

like I would spinach or silver

beet.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Cool autumn weather

is best for planting

AUTUMN DAYS herald a

change towards cooler weather,

the soil stays moist and there’s

colour everywhere.

It can also be the best season

for planting, because new plants

have time to settle in before

they’re faced with their first

summer.

Fertilising

Spread organic pellets around

shrubs and flowerbeds.

Feed citrus and other fruit

trees with citrus food.

Clear away weeds and grass

at the base and spread a layer of

organic mulch over the root area

(keeping well clear of the trunk).

Remember, feeding with

high potash fertilisers encourages

blooming and, even more

importantly, builds plants’ resistance

to disease (essential at this

time of year when fungal problems

are rife).

Lawn care

Give lawns a feed with a longlasting

fertiliser. Early autumn is

the ideal time to rejuvenate tired

lawns. Spike with a fork or a purpose-designed

lawn aerator and

oversow with a lawn seed blend.

Pest control

Watch out for the autumn

influx of caterpillars.

White moths and butterflies

attack cabbages, cauliflowers,

rocket and their relatives,

vine moth caterpillars are

demolishing grape leaves, flax

caterpillar is stripping leaf

sections of leaves, leaf rollers are

knitting leaves and emerging to

graze on apples, feijoas and other

fruit.

Use low toxic options for

controlling most caterpillars.

Grass grubs and porina, too, can

destroy lawns.

Treat weeds

Many annual weeds are

approaching maturity and

should be removed before

they have the chance to

spread their seeds.

Other autumn tasks

Prune the hydrangea stems

that flowered last summer.

Reduce clusters of camellia

buds to one per stem.

Divide perennial plants and

spread to other parts of the garden.

After their leaves have fallen,

spray deciduous fruit trees (eg

peaches) with a copper fungicide.

Help at hand for

overwhelmed

home buyers

and sellers

If you believe everything you see in

advertisements, buying a house is a

blissfully easy process done by attractive

couples who are moving into pictureperfect

properties. There will be moments

of joy and laughter, and the only thing

missing will be a unicorn grazing in the

neatly manicured garden.

In real life, buying or selling a house can

be a time for great rejoicing, but it can also

be extremely stressful. Owning a home is

still embedded in the Kiwi DNA, despite

rising prices making it less attainable.

Buying a property is the biggest financial

transaction most people will ever make in

their lifetime and if it doesn’t go well the

results can be devastating.

As the regulator for New Zealand’s real

estate industry, the Real Estate Authority

(REA) works to increase professionalism

and public confidence in the sector as

well as to protect, educate and inform

home buyers and sellers. In the last year

we’ve done a lot of research into Kiwis’

experience of property transactions and

the results have been sobering.

Our research has found that more than

50 per cent of New Zealanders say they

lack the knowledge and information they

need when trying to buy and sell property.

Many feel confused and find it difficult

to find reliable information. The majority

(55 per cent) said they lacked knowledge

about the end-to-end process.

Unfortunately, this lack of knowledge

means that many buyers fail to do the

appropriate due diligence and expose

themselves to significant potential risks.

We all know someone who didn’t realise

they’d have to pay for a shared driveway,

or who bought a house without getting

a building inspection that would have

showed it was full of borer. Our survey

found that while 83 per cent of buyers

got at least one report on a property, less

than half (44 per cent) got one from a

certified building inspector. These kinds

of situations cost money and time, which

are never in great enough supply for most

people.

A lack of clear guidance could be partially

responsible for the results of a second

survey, which showed that 53 per cent

of potential buyers had problems when

making an offer on a property. Thirtyfive

per cent of sellers found marketing

the property and having open homes the

toughest part of the process. Half of those

who experienced trouble said it had a

significant impact, causing them personal

stress or financial woes. New migrants and

first-time home buyers and sellers were the

most likely to have problems, such as with

understanding the value and the condition

of a property.

While it may seem that there’s a lot of

information on buying or selling out there,

it’s often scattered and hard to understand.

Crucially, it often comes from sources with

a vested interest in the outcome and people

are understandably wary about whether

they can rely on it.

This is where we come in. This week we

launched a new website to help fill the gap.

Buying a house is a complex legal process

and things can be even more difficult if

you’re not sure about how it works because

you’ve never done it before or you haven’t

done it for a long time. We hope that the

impartial and interactive information and

guidance on settled.govt.nz will help people

make better decisions. We want to make it

easy for people to do their homework so

they feel confident and in control before

buying or selling property. When you’ve

got the right information at hand your

experience is much more likely to resemble

the dream sold in advertisements.

Kevin Lampen-Smith is the chief

executive of the Real Estate Authority

(REA).

REAA - Understanding real estate jargon

Every industry is full of jargon and

buzzwords that make no sense to anyone

who’s not part of the club. Real estate is no

different, which means it can be hard to get

up to speed. Here’s a handy guide to some

of the most common terms you’ll come

across when buying or selling property.

Agency agreement: If you are using

a licensed real estate agent to sell your

property, you’ll need to sign one of these

agreements - it sets out what the agent will

do and what they will be paid. Remember

you can negotiate the conditions, such as

who pays for marketing and how much

the commission is. Make sure you get

legal advice before you sign, because it’s a

binding document.

BEO or BBO: This stands for ‘Buyer

Enquiry Over’ or ‘Buyer Budget Over’,

which means that price listed on the

advertisement indicates the minimum that

the seller will accept. The seller actually

needs to give serious consideration to any

offer over the BEO, so this figure needs to

be selected carefully.

Deadline Sale or Deadline Private

Treaty: In this kind of sale, a property

is marketed for a set period (with an

advertised end date). The seller can choose

to accept an offer at any stage during the

listing period though it may be stated

in the advertising that ‘no offer will be

accepted prior’. Check the fine print.

LIM: This stands for Land Information

Memorandum, which contains everything

that the local council knows about the

property, such as any issues with drainage

and plumbing, erosion or permits. It will

help you identify if any additions haven’t

got the right consent. A LIM will also

record any unpaid rates.

Sale and purchase agreement: This

is a legally binding contract between

the buyer and seller for the purchase/

sale of a property. It provides certainty

to both parties and it sets out in writing

all the agreed terms and conditions. It’s

essential to get legal advice before you

sign an agreement – and that you read and

understand what it means.

Settlement: This is the end goal in a

property transaction, when the sale and

purchase is completed by the exchange of

property and payment. Settlement occurs

when the seller receives the money for the

sale – the buyer will not receive the keys

until this happens.

RV: This stands for ‘Rateable Value’ – this

is a value used to calculate local body rates.

It should not be assumed to be a market

value for a property when it is for sale as

the rating valuation may be a number of

years old. It is also not responsive to local

market fluctuations and may not reflect

any recent renovations to a property. This

was formerly known as ‘Government

Value’, or GV.

Tender: If a property is for sale by

tender, prospective buyers must submit

confidential written offers by a set date.

Usually there is no minimum price, but

properties are often listed with a BEO or

BBO price. The seller can then choose the

offer that is most acceptable to them, based

on the price and any attached conditions.

The most attractive tender is likely to be

one that combines a good price with few

conditions. Sellers are allowed to negotiate

with any one or more of the tenderers

received after tenders close.

What’s my house really worth?

When you’ve lived in a property for a

while it can be hard to be rational about

its worth. How can you put a price on

the spot where you’ve built so many

memories with family and friends?

Someone will surely recognise the hours

you spent sanding back the windows or

digging out the agapanthus in the garden

and reward you with a high price, won’t

they? Unfortunately potential buyers may

see things differently, especially in a slow

housing market.

There are several methods you can

use to gauge the worth of your property.

Remember that the rateable value or

RV (formerly known as the government

valuation, or GV) of your property doesn’t

really provide any clues. These valuations

are done by the local council to work out

what share of rates a household should

pay. They are only done every three years

and don’t take any improvements into

account – increasingly, properties that

include an RV figure in the advertising

will come with a disclaimer that it is not

indicative of current market value.

These days you can gather a lot of

information for free thanks to websites

like Trade Me and Homes.co.nz. Trade

Me’s Property Insights has information on

more than 1.5 million homes, including

rateable value data, previous sale prices,

when the property was built and what

size it is. The site also provides an

estimated value range, based on a melting

pot of data from sales of comparable

properties, listing details and user

activity. Homes.co.nz operates similarly.

Its estimate service is built on a complex

set of valuation models, using around

30 million pieces of data bought from

councils nationwide, plus sales values and

a wide set of property features. Both sites

recognise there are a number of factors

at play, so they offer an estimated value

range that can be quite broad.

While both these sites are useful, they

don’t show the full picture and should

only be used as the starting point in

determining value. They can’t take

the condition of your property into

account and they may not recognise

any improvements you might have

made (though homes.co.nz does allow

owners to ‘claim’ their property and edit

information about it).

Let’s say you own a large property in an

area where there have been some bigticket

sales in the last year. Your property

might have some serious structural issues

and be in generally poor condition, yet

the algorithms may claim that it is worth

a lot more than any sensible buyer would

pay for it because other houses in the

neighbourhood have sold for high prices.

The impact of this is two-fold. Firstly, the

seller could anticipate a big pay-day that

may never arrive; and secondly, some

buyers may be put off making an offer

because they think it’s out of range.

There are a couple of ways to combat

this. When you start working with a real

estate agent to sell your property they

must supply you with a current market

appraisal or CMA. This is based on

similar information to the online versions,

but it also comes with the agent’s realtime,

real-life knowledge of the area, what

similar properties have sold for and the

condition and particular characteristics of

your own property (such as whether it has

been repainted recently or it’s in a state

of disrepair). The agent will have had the

chance to walk through your property and

identify its unique selling propositions,

such as good sun, proximity to desirable

schools and other features that buyers

like. It’s important to note that you may

get varying CMA ranges from different

real estate agents as they may each take a

divergent perspective on your property

that you will then need to consider.

Your other option is to pay a

registered valuer to provide you with an

independent valuation. This service comes

at a cost (the price will vary, depending

on the level of detail), but it will be more

accurate. The Property Institute, which

represents valuers, says a registered

valuation can help sellers be a little more

clinical about their property’s worth.

Even with all the information you

can gather, the true indication of your

property’s value is what a willing buyer

will pay for it at the given time that it’s on

the market. A valuation, a price range or a

figure reached by an algorithm is not cash

in the bank.
