25 years fighting fires recognised

Mr White, 43, said he joined

the brigade while studying at

Lincoln University.

“I came to university down

here and tried to be brainy and

failed miserably,” he said.

The earthquakes and the Port

Hills fire were the two “most

notable” events Mr White has

been involved in.

Mr White said he’s not sure

how long he’ll stay with the

brigade but “they’re not sick of

me yet.”

“It’s a real good service to be

in to be honest, the camaraderie

between each of the members

and so on,” he said.

Lincoln chief fire officer Jeremy

Greenwood said Mr White

is a “very, very humble, kind

natured sort of person.”

Mr Greenwood said they can

always count on Mr White to

step up.

“Every time there’s a job

during the day he sort of, turns

out, it’s quite the sacrifice he

makes for the community,” he

said.

Fears

Yaldhurst

quarry

decision

sets a

precedent

• By Anan Zaki

TEMPLETON RESIDENTS fear

they could be next following the

approval of a quarry expansion in

Yaldhurst last week.

Quarrying company Road

Metals was given permission

by Environment Canterbury to

increase the size of its Yaldhurst

operations, which meant it can

quarry land 100m from houses.

Templeton Residents Association

chairman Garry Kilday labelled

the decision as “ridiculous

and shocking.”

He and other residents have

been campaigning against a

proposed quarry in the area by

Fulton Hogan.

Mr Kilday also expressed shock

over how the Canterbury District

Health Board’s advice over the

quarry was limited to a single

paragraph on a 54-page report.

“It just flies in the face of common

sense.

“They [ECan] completely ignored

the advice from the district

health board. I don’t understand

how they are getting away with

it,” he said.

from the reporter’s desk

It’s not surprising Templeton residents are fearful after seeing

what’s happened in Yaldhurst recently (see page 1).

Environment Canterbury has given Road Metals permission

to expand one of its quarries.

On a positive note, the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board has given the Templeton Residents’ Association

$6000 for its fight against the proposed quarry.

On page 3 you’ll read about the construction of the new pavilion

at Weedons Reserve.

With the clubrooms now demolished, the district council has

indicated the new facility will be built in the next few weeks.

But Weedons Residents’ Association secretary Gary Doyle still

has questions about who is paying for it and how much.

BLAZE IN DARFIELD HOUSE

Firefighters were called to a house

pavilion (below)

will be built.

CONSTRUCTION OF the

new community pavilion at

Weedons Reserve is expected to

start within the next few weeks.

This follows the demolition

of the existing clubrooms last

week.

A budget of about $800,000 is

estimated for the new pavilion,

with discussions ongoing for

more than eight years.

A district council spokesman

said discussions regarding

sports clubs’ contributions

towards capital and operational

costs are ongoing.

But Weedons Residents’ Association

secretary Gary Doyle

doesn’t know how the district

council can go ahead with plans

without a budget in place.

“How can you start a building

without knowing where the

money is coming from,” he said.

However, Weedons Cricket

Club junior club captain Ross

Clarke confirmed both the tennis

and cricket clubs would be

contributing to the new facility.

“Probably not at this stage

[able to say how much it is

contributing], but it is in the

thousands,” he said.

Weedons ratepayers are

currently paying $14 per year

towards the new pavilion and

$80 towards the recreation

reserve fee.

Mr Doyle said ratepayers were

initially paying $54 per year until

he argued against it and the

amount was reduced to $14.

The district council’s major

projects property manager John

Reid said the building will include

a lounge, a small kitchen,

two dressing rooms and some

public toilet facilities.

The tennis courts have been

moved and realigned to allow

for a larger cricket oval for the

Weedons Cricket

Club as part of

the community

pavilion redevelopment.

Information

from the district council’s

corporate services manager

Greg Bell said the tennis court

upgrade cost $162,601 plus

GST and 65 per cent of this is

estimated to have come from

ratepayers.

The new community pavilion

is expected to be completed in

October and the area will be

fenced off during this time.

However, access to the tennis

courts and golf course should

not be affected.

VEHICLE FIRE

Firefighters were called to

contain a vehicle fire at 9.30pm

last Wednesday on Southbridge

Leeston Rd. Southbridge chief fire

officer Donald McMillan said it’s

still unknown how the vehicle

caught fire. He said units from

Southbridge and Leeston both

attended. Mr McMillan said the

sole occupant of the vehicle was

taken away by ambulance and it’s

believed the man may have been

treated for a medical condition.

Meanwhile, firefighters were

called to a rural shed fire on Dunsandel

and Brookside Rd at about

9.30pm last Monday. Dunsandel

chief fire officer Ian Chatterson

said units from Southbridge,

Leeston, Lincoln and Dunsandel

attended the “fully involved”

fire. It took firefighters about two

hours to contain the blaze. Noone

was injured.

Precedent fears

over quarry

expansion

•From page 1

Anti-quarry campaigner Simon

Moore said he was scared that a

precedent had been set.

“They [CDHB] are the people

who know how people are affected

by this because they can see them.

“It scares the hell out of me that

it’s inevitable that it’s going to

happen out here because of the

rubber stamping that’s going on by

ECan particularly,” Mr Moore said.

He said his stance did not mean

he was against quarrying.

“Obviously we need quarries if

we’re going to have roads.

But we don’t need them in

people’s backyards,” Mr Moore

said.

He said he felt sorry for Yaldhurst

residents who would be impacted

by the decision.

The Templeton Residents

Association also received a

major boost last week after being

granted $6000 from the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board.

The money would be used to

source expert advice over the

dangers of the proposed quarry, Mr

Kilday said.

“We need these guys to testify

and it costs a lot of money.” Mr

Kilday said.

Council, ECan clash over fare increase

Mayor wants

rates to cover

bus shortfall

• By Emily O’Connell

Sam

Broughton

THE DISTRICT council

isn’t backing Environment

Canterbury’s plan to increase

public transport fares.

In ECan’s draft Long Term

Plan, three options have been

proposed to plug

a $4 million

shortfall in the

public transport

budget.

Two of the three

options incorporate

fare increases

including ECan’s

preferred option

which would see

an annual increase in total fare

revenue of 2.5 per year for the

next three years.

Mayor Sam Broughton made

a submission on ECan’s draft

LTP on behalf of the district

council.

“SDC does not support

proposed fare increases. Rather

we believe that any shortfall in

funding should be generated

from rate revenue,” he said.

Public transport is funded

COST: The district council is against Environment

Canterbury’s plan to increase public transport fares.

from a New Zealand Transport

Agency subsidy, bus fares and

ECan rates.

Patronage has never

recovered following the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

In his submission, Mr

Broughton suggested the

district should be within

the same single fare zone as

Christchurch.

“Currently, a journey from

Redcliffs to Hornby is one

zone, but Rolleston to Hornby

is two zones and Lincoln to

Prebbleton is two zones,” he

said.

Mr Broughton believes if

ECan changed the district’s

fare zoning, there would be an

increase in patronage.

He also suggested ECan

introduce a youth fare.

“A youth in the equivalent

of full-time study should stay

on the lower ‘child’ fare service

enhancements not decreases,”

Mr Broughton said.

Selwyn Youth Council

chairwoman Paige Sullivan

said the youth fare is a “really

good” idea and one that would

encourage people to study in

Christchurch.

“Especially for young people

busing into things like Ara, it

can get real expensive,” she said.

She said the youth council

will probably go to the district

council and ECan next month

to discuss the free bus trial it

ran in April. Buses travelled

between Southbridge and

Darfield and Darfield to

Southbridge via Rolleston as

part of the trial. Paige said a

total of 557 people travelled on

the bus over two days.

Mr Broughton said the

district council also wants

ECan to consider

some new routes,

including a

Southbridge to

Leeston service

which could link

to either Lincoln

or Rolleston.

“We would also

like consideration

given to a

Paige

Sullivan

Darfield-Kirwee-West Melton

service which could link to

Hornby or Church Corner or

Rolleston,” he said.

An ECan spokeswoman said

there were 779 submissions on

the LTP.

“Majority are on public

transport options,” she said.

ECan is having a public

deliberation meeting today and

will adopt the final LTP on June

21.

Confusing speed

limit signs removed

• By Emily O’Connell

CONFUSION ON how

fast to travel on busy

Birchs Rd between

Prebbleton and Lincoln

has been resolved.

District council asset

engineer transportation

Mark Chamberlain

confirmed that at one stage

Birchs Rd had both an

80km/h and 100km/h sign

on display.

However, he said this

was changed on May 11

and the Birchs Rd speed

limit is 80km/h.

“As per the speed limit

review at the end of last

year and confirmed at the

February council meeting,”

Mr Chamberlain said.

He said the mistake occurred

because new signs

are being “progressively

installed” and some existing

signs had not been

changed.

A district council

spokesman said no other

roads in the district have

been affected.

Sergeant Alex Pickover

said in this case, police

wouldn’t issue tickets if

motorists were driving at

the incorrect speed.

“As far as I’m aware if its

two different speed limits,

one’s saying one and the

other’s saying another,

then we won’t issue tickets,”

he said.

This follows a recent

district council decision

to combine the review of

Selwyn’s speed limit bylaw

and speed limits outside

schools to prevent confusing

the public.

Both reviews will now go

SELWYN TIMES

out for public consultation

in August.

Mr Chamberlain said

police have been informed

about the changes in

progress and the district

council is encouraging

to get in touch if they spot

incorrect signs.

Changes to water race bylaw

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Mark

Alexander

A DECISION to alter a

bylaw affecting Selwyn’s

water races without further

public consultation has been

questioned.

The district council approved

alterations to the Water Race

Bylaw at its meeting recently following

a public hearing in April.

The bylaw subcommittee

hearing panel

consisted of district

councillors

Debra Hasson,

Mark Alexander

and Nicole

Reid.

Alongside the

Water Race Bylaw,

it adopted

the amended

Water Supply

Bylaw and the Stormwater and

Drainage Bylaw 2018.

It is after public consultation

on the Water Race Bylaw 2008

received four submissions from

residents, the Canterbury District

Health Board and Environment

Canterbury.

Two submissions from residents

asked for a clause ensuring

there is facility to manage the

water races for ecological purposes

to be placed back into the

new bylaw.

SET TO GO: The district council has reviewed its water supply

bylaws.

It was the clause to enhance

water races ecologically where

ever possible would be placed

back into the new water race

bylaw.

But district councillor Craig

Watson said “is not good practice”

for the hearing panel to

change the bylaw based on two

submissions.

He was concerned the changes

were made without consulting

the public and the district council’s

water race sub-committee

and it could result in a “huge

expense”.

His views were supported by

district councillor John Morten.

District councillor Mark

Alexander said it is appropriate

for these issues to be resolved at

the hearing.

“I am not quite sure how else

we were to deal with this . . . if

we don’t like it we will re start

the process even if it means delaying

the outcome,” he said.

Cr Alexander said the hearing

panel considered the submissions

and agreed to put the

ecological clause back in.

He said he imagined any

future proposals relating to

enhancing the water races would

be taken to the water race subcommittee

for comment.

But Cr Watson and Cr

Morten’s votes were recorded

against the decision to amend

the Water Race Bylaw 2008 at

the meeting.

Cr Watson said this was because

no investigation has been

done on what affect it may have

on the water races.

“While their intention may be

good, it could have some serious

repercussions.”

Tough trip for scooter riders

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

TRAVELLING ACROSS the

Southern Alps on a scooter is

never going to be an easy feat.

But for Kirwee man Paul

Washington, the bigger the

struggle, the better.

The aircraft engineer was one

of 270 people to travel 250km on

scooters from Christchurch to

Hokitika to raise money for the

Canterbury-West Coast Cancer

Society.

It was the fifth time Mr Washington

has taken part in the

Tranz Alpine Scooter Safari and

wild weather made the ride as

“challenging” as ever.

Riders were battered with

strong winds all the way to

Arthur’s Pass before facing heavy

rain all the way to Hokitika.

Mr Washington takes part in

each event in a Santa Claus suit

in honour of his six-year-old son

he lost to cancer 25 years ago.

His son Nicholas Washington

passed away several weeks after

Christmas, in January 1992, after

fighting a brain tumour for two

years.

“It has taught me to ignore the

little things, there is a lot of stuff

out there that people sweat on

and it is not important.

“Ever now 25 years on I still get

a tear in my eye . . . I have got a

little grandson who looks a little

like my son did. I love spending

time with him. I know how precious

it can be.”

Both his wife Nicky and his

sister-in-law also have breast

cancer, with his wife currently

receiving treatment.

Mr Washington’s scooter trip

has individually raised nearly

$2600 for the Cancer Society

while the overall event raised

$320,000.

The biennial trip aims to raise

awareness for the difficulties

people experience in their battle

against cancer.

“Although it is to no extent

the same as suffering cancer,

there is always the challenge, it is

uncomfortable, you never know

what you are really going to

expect,” Mr Washington said.

Mr Washington said there are

so many services the

Cancer Society provides to help

people “get through their terrible

time.”

The fundraiser was started in

2009 by Jayne and Mike Rattray

when their colleague Blair Newton

was diagnosed with bowel

cancer.

Over the past nine years the

event has raised $1,106,000.

• By Emily O’Connell

SIXTY-ONE objections have

been made against a another

bottle store opening in Lincoln.

An application has been

submitted by Balhae Ltd for an

off-licence bottle store known

as Lincoln Liquor Centre, on

Eastfield Drive (right).

A district council spokesman

said 17 of the 61 objectors want

to be heard at a public hearing.

A date for the hearing has not

been set yet.

“The District Licensing Committee

members will be selected

once a date has been set for the

hearing,” the spokesman said.

But some residents have said

the centre, which is proposing

to be open 7am-9pm seven days

a week, is unnecessary.

Lincoln residents Tania

Roxborogh and Dave Bunt

don’t want another bottle store

in Lincoln so they made objections.

In Mr Bunt’s objection, he

said he feels the new liquor store

would cause “a heightened risk

of alcohol abuse.”

“I want my children, pets and

neighbours to be able to safely

walk the streets without having

to worry about stepping on

he said.

Mrs Roxborogh is concerned

about the health of the community

and the impact of more

litter.

“I just think that this isn’t

going to serve those vulnerable

members of our community by

having a bottle store right in the

middle of a residential place,”

she said.

Balhae Ltd could not be

reached for comment.

It’s not the first time residents

have objected to plans for more

bottle stores in the area.

In October, Dipin Kalra

withdrew his application to

he wanted to site in Gerald St

So how does this message

involve mycoplasma bovis, a

disease affecting New Zealand’s

beef and dairy industries?

As a rural landowner grazing

cattle, I read another farm – this

time in North Canterbury – is

infected with this disease.

Having heard first-hand from

a farmer who purchased stock,

and had them blood tested

by the Ministry for Primary

Industries and culled in 2017, I

think about the farms currently

under surveillance.

I wonder where these farms

are and how as a landowner

would I be notified about

outbreaks? What would my plan

be and do I need a plan now?

A common complaint from

rural landowners has been

about the lack of forward

planning and communication,

given the disease could have

been introduced as early as

2015.

With industry participation,

farmers can receive updates

through the tracking of National

Animal Identification and

Tracing scheme tags and milk.

But what about the lifestyle

What if the outbreak was foot

Ronan Bass

Irish eyes are smiling on Ellesmere

About a month into

the job, Ellesmere

College’s new principal

Ronan Bass is enjoying

the new role. Emily

O’Connell talked

with him about his

career, moving from

Ireland and his most

memorable teaching

moment

How have your first few weeks

been at Ellesmere College?

It’s been really good.

Everybody’s been very

welcoming. So we started with a

beautiful powhiri . . . I was very

fortunate to have some

staff members from Hillcrest

High School in Hamilton and

students come down to support

me along with some of my

friends who work in the local

community. So that was a really

beautiful way of being, I suppose,

introduced to the Leeston

and the Ellesmere College

community.

How did you get into teaching?

I went straight from high

school to do a degree. It was a

combined degree in education

and science. Growing up in a

very rural community in the

East Coast of Ireland, I had

always thought about becoming

a vet. And then I worked during

my teens for about three years

in a veterinary clinic and that

put me right off. I don’t know

where it kind of came from,

there’s kind of been a series of

sort of teachers in my family

and it was something I thought

about. I attended the University

of Limerick, which is on the

West Coast of Ireland, and I

did a bachelor of science and

education, specialising in

agricultural science and biology

. . . I spent my first year out of

university working in a school

smaller than Ellesmere College

in probably a town around

about the same size, and then

I was quite fortunate to get a

position at an international

boarding school in Switzerland

for a year. After that I decided

I wanted to see the world a wee

bit and I moved to New Zealand.

Initially, for about six months on

a working holiday visa but stayed

for about five years. And then

went back to Europe for a couple

years and I’ve been back here

ever since.

What put you off becoming

a vet?

I’m not sure actually. Probably,

it’s a full-on job – not that teaching

of any school isn’t. Maybe

it was the goriness of it? I’m not

sure. I’m pretty good with kind

of guts and blood . . . I suppose

maybe the idea that I wanted to

give back more to community

and the idea of social justice and

working with people and being

able to, I suppose, influence and

bring about change.

How long have you been

teaching?

This is my 21st year.

What was the first school you

taught in?

Colaiste Bhride – and that

back then was quite a small

school. It was under 300 students

and it was about 20km from

where I grew up . . . now that

school has actually about 800-

900 students.

What made you apply for the

job at Ellesmere College?

Long-term my plan had always

been to move to the South

Island. Last year I was fortunate

enough to be acting principal

at Hillcrest High School, which

is a school of 1800 students, for

a term while the principal was

away on a sabbatical and I really

enjoyed that . . . when this position

came up, it was very much

a kind of ‘it ticked all my boxes.’

I’ve always wanted to work and

lead a school which is set in kind

of a rural community where you

can see, kind of, I suppose, your

sphere of influence but also be

close enough to a large urban

area like Christchurch so that

you do have a bit more of the

support mechanisms close by.

Two of my best friends work

at two of the local schools . . .

Ellesmere College has a really

good reputation. It’s not that this

school was broken and needs to

be fixed or anything like that.

That it would be going in here to

work with a really professional

group of teachers and support

staff and working collaboratively

with them, moving forward for

the future. One of the big draws

for me was the, I suppose, the

rebuild that’s going to happen

over the next two years and that’s

really, really exciting.

Other than the term of being

principal at Hillcrest High

School, had you been principal

before?

Nope. So I’m a first time principal.

Did that term make you want

to become principal?

Yes, well it had always been

my career aspiration. It was

an interesting thing because

SETTLING

College’s new

Bass (centre,

MARTIN

HUNTER

when I was acting principal for

term two last year, I was not apprehensive

about it but I was like

‘I’m just going to take every day

as it comes.’ But I really, really

enjoyed it I have to say.

Why have you always wanted

to move to the South Island?

You just have to look at, you

know, how the South Island

looks at the moment and it’s

a pretty easy answer. I think

Autumn in the South Island is

an absolute spectacular time, you

know, the change in colours, and

the scenery, the people . . . I’m a

rural boy at heart.

When and why did you move

to New Zealand?

So it was in 1999. I had family

living here, so on my dad’s side,

my closest cousins in terms of

age lived in New Zealand and

we had seen them sporadically

growing up and I decided well

I kind of wanted a bit of change

of scenery and I’d like to get to

know some of my cousins a bit

better.

College

What’s the difference between

teaching here and overseas?

I think we’ve got extremely

hard working teachers. I think

we’ve got very, very professional

teachers . . . we’ve got an

absolutely amazing, and I always

say world-leading curriculum

document. When you look at

curriculum documents from

other countries, you know,

they are thousands

of pages long and

extremely prescriptive

. . . NCEA has some

issues with it but

again, that has been

designed to be a

very, very flexible

assessment system

and it’s about teachers

being able to use that

and adapt it so it fits the localised

context of the school and it’s

adaptable enough to be able to

be used so that it fits the learning

needs of the students as well . . .

so for example in Ireland, it all

rode on, or used to, I think it may

have changed, everything rode

on your end of year exams at

the end of year 13 . . . so a classic

example was, you know, my year

13 biology exam, I had a splitting

migraine, I left after 40min and

there was no such thing as a

derived grade or compassionate

consideration, you had to suck it

up and either take the grade you

got or you resat it the following

year.

What grade did you end up

getting in your biology exam?

I got a B+. It was one of my

stronger subjects.

What do you hope to achieve

or implement at Ellesmere

College?

For me, it’s not

about what I want

to implement, it’s

more about taking

staff, students and

the community on a

journey. As I have kind

of mentioned, where

we’re going to have new

buildings and possibly

have to rethink how

we’re doing some of our teaching.

It’s about taking everybody on

a journey so they understand

why we’re doing that and how to

do it.

Do you live locally to the

college?

Yes I do. I’m about a 7min

drive, so it’s within the Leeston

community, so just slightly on

the outskirts. And that was

part of moving down here was

that I wanted to be part of the

community and to be highly

visible within the community

and that was a conscious

decision.

What’s your most memorable

teaching moment?

A lot of them, really. I suppose

for me, and most teachers would

say this, but it’s about, you

know, seeing kind of a light go

on behind a kid’s eyes . . . and

that’s what schools are all about,

you know, working together and

working collaboratively to ensure

that students leave school and

can be successful, irrespective of

what they want to do.

What’s your favourite thing to

do outside of work?

Probably get into the

garden when the weather’s

nice. I tend to just kind of like

de-stress. Probably at home –

doing some reading, watching a

lot of movies and kind of taking

it easy.

Do you have any pets?

We have a small zoo. So

dogs, cats, chickens, and at one

time, rabbits – so that was an

interesting process transporting

them to the South Island.

What’s the most important

lesson you’ve learnt?

Is to listen – and that is a

lesson I’ve had to learn over a

long period of time. But it’s really

important you can step back and

listen to people.

school and get your passport

stamped to be in to win one

of three 2018 MGP Scooters,

new helmets and back pack covers.

Children must complete 10

journeys to enter.

Active Autumn is also running

a poster design competition.

Create a poster on “walking or

Rehearsals ramp up

for school production

IT IS another musical year for

Lincoln High School and this

time they are performing Guys

and Dolls.

Based on the story and

characters of Damon Runyon,

with music and lyrics by Frank

Loesser, this colourful and lighthearted

comedy has many wellknown

songs, including Luck

be a Lady tonight and Sit down

you’re rocking the boat.

Set in Depression-era Times

Square, Guys and Dolls is about

a couple of big city gamblers and

the women who love them.

It tells the overlapping stories

of high-roller Sky Masterson,

who falls in love with mission

worker Sarah Brown, and lovable

rapscallion Nathan Detroit,

engaged for 14 years to Miss

Adelaide, a headliner at the Hot

Box Club.

Detroit runs a famous floating

crap game, and an ongoing

plot line involves his quest for a

safe place for the game as Miss

Adelaide continues her quest to

convince him to marry her.

Meanwhile, Sarah, mistakenly

believing that Masterson set up

an

SALE

illegal game at the mission,

tries to fight her affection for the

charismatic crapshooter.

With a total of 80 cast, band

and crew members, Guys and

Dolls is a massive undertaking

for all staff, students and parents

involved.

Invite native moths onto your patch

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects and

other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species found in

his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public awareness of

biodiversity, the variety of living things around us. Check out the full list

of invertebrates found at http://naturewatch.org.nz/projects/backyardbiodiversity-bugs-in-lincoln

THE LARVAE of many native

moth species have a very

narrow range of hosts, so if

you plant a diverse range of

native plants as I do, you attract

and support a diverse range of

insects.

Planting a grove of natives

creates dense leaf litter for

additional species such as the

slender owlet moth, Rhapsa

scotosialis, whose larvae feed

on recently fallen leaves and

moss.

This endemic moth is one

of the more common species

in native forests, so to have it

in my backyard in Lincoln is

indeed satisfying.

These attractive moths are

triangular in shape when

resting and are 14-19mm long.

Moth wing patterns can be

quite variable but this species

usually has pale wing tips and

distinctive squiggles on the

forewings.

This moth family are often

called ‘snout moths’ due to

their pointed palps, and males

are distinguished by their large

feather-like antennae.

The underside of the male

forewings have scent glands

concealed in a fold and are used

during courtship.

So, if you would like to

attract more of our 1400

endemic moth species to your

backyard, try planting some

new native species in your

garden.

ENDEMIC: Slender owlet moth, (rhapsa scotosialis) larvae feed on

recently fallen leaves and moss.

Update on District Plan Review

Selwyn District Council has been preparing a range of topics for

initial public consultation as part of its District Plan Review.

At its May meeting the Council’s District Plan Committee received

the latest round of reports on a number of different topics, indicating

a preferred option on draft changes to the current Plan, which will

form the starting point for engaging with the wider community.

“While the recent public attention has been on the Long-Term Plan

for the district, the Council has also been engaging with stakeholders

and partners on a range of topics which are under review,” says Tim

Harris, the Council’s Environmental Services Manager.

“We’re looking at all the rules and policies in the current District

Plan – which sets out how our district’s resources need to be

managed – and consulting with our partners and stakeholders over

what changes, if any, need to be made in the next Plan.

An initial public consultation on a range of matters and draft

changes will take place later this year.

For more information on the District Plan Review and opportunities

to provide feedback visit the Council’s engagement hub Your Say

Selwyn at www.selwyn.govt.nz/yoursay.

Over 500 people made use of the free Selwyn Link bus trial over two days in the April

school holidays.

The nine-stop bus service was offered to the community by the Selwyn Youth Council, with buses

traveling from Southbridge to Darfield and Darfield to Southbridge, via Rolleston.

The bus service was designed with the aim of reducing isolation in the community, and providing

better access to services and activities.

Paige Sullivan, Selwyn Youth Council Chairperson says the service was well received by

the community.

“It was great to see all age groups taking advantage of the service, with kids off to spend their

pocket money in Rolleston, young people heading into Christchurch and the elderly enjoying a

day trip getting out and about across the district.”

The route was designed after the Youth Council consulted with students from Ellesmere College

and Darfield High School about what they would like in a bus service in terms of timings and

stop locations.

Members of the Youth Council collected feedback about the service on board the buses with a

short passenger survey. They will present their findings to the Selwyn District Council at their June

meeting, and to Environment Canterbury later this year.

Submissions invited on the Council’s Draft

Gambling Venue Policy

The Council’s Gambling Venue Policy sets out if and where non-casino gaming machines or “pokie

machines” can be located in the district and also provides restrictions on the number of machines at

the venues.

Since the current policy was adopted in March 2015 the population of the district has increased from

49,500 to approximately 60,000 and there have been more restaurants and bars established to service

this increased population.

The Council’s existing policy has a cap of 107 machines.

The proposed draft policy includes:

· a cap of 120 machines

· limits new venues to a maximum of 5 machines

· venues that are operating less than 5 machines to have a maximum of 5 machines.

These provisions seek to strike a balance between community benefit (funding and entertainment) and

the harm caused by problem gambling.

The consultation period runs from Monday 28 May–Friday 29 June.

The proposed Policy, submission forms and a statement of proposal are available at all Council service

centres and libraries and on the Council’s website yoursay.selwyn.govt.nz from Monday 28 May.

You can make your submission online or by emailing submissions@selwyn.govt.nz.

Written submissions can be addressed to: The Regulatory Manager, Selwyn District Council, Reviewed

Selwyn District Council

announces first artist residency

Selwyn District Council is pleased to announce that respected Ngāi

Tahu artist, Emma Riha Kitson, has been appointed as the first of

four artists in residence in Selwyn.

The Canterbury-born artist and designer is inspired by native

New Zealand flora and fauna and Te Ao Māori. Using printmaking

methods that whānau can use at home, Emma will explore the

intersection of traditional Māori stories and use of bunting to

decorate special occasions.

Matariki ki tua o ngā whetū, ‘Matariki of endless possibilities’ uses

contemporary Ngā Toi Māori to interpret and celebrate the story

of Matariki.

Installed: Artists in Residence is a series of four artist residencies

in collaboration with Selwyn District Libraries and the Selwyn arts

community, and produced by Council’s Arts, Culture and

Heritage Selwyn service.

All are welcome to visit Emma at the Darfield Library and learn

about the printmaking process. Emma will be available at the library

Monday 11 June to Friday 15 June, between 11am and 5pm.

An evening presentation will be held on Tuesday 12 June from

7–8pm. This will involve learning the skills to make prints at home

without a printing press, using recycled and budget materials.

She will also host a Whānau DIY Matariki Bunting workshop, with

two sessions on Saturday 16 June, 10am and 1.30pm for all ages

and skill levels. Bookings are required for these workshops. Register

at selwynlibraries.co.nz.

The remaining artist residencies will be offered at Rolleston (Youth),

Lincoln (Literature) and Leeston (Digital Art) libraries, in October

2018, February 2019, and April 2019 respectively.

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads this week

Selwyn District Council and Police are reminding motorists of the dangers of winter driving as the wintry

months approach.

Weather conditions such as fog, rain, icy roads, sun strike and snow pose challenges for even the most

skilled drivers. Reduced visibility and traction on the roads can lead to road crashes.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills of the New Zealand Police says there are inherent risks in winter driving, but

motorists can act to improve road safety.

“Make sure you have sufficient tread depth on your tires and that your brakes are in warrant of fitness

condition,” says Sergeant Stills. “Ensure your wiper blades are in good condition and can clear your

windscreen easily. Drive with your lights on, and watch your following distances and speed on curves

and through bends.

“Be mindful of wet and shaded roads where ice can form. Bridges are risky due to being very cold

through having no ground immediately below them,” he says.

Crash statistics from Selwyn show that between 2013 and 2017 there were twice as many accidents

in the morning peak period of 6–9am in the winter months (June, July and August) as in the summer

months (December, January and February).

The Council’s roading contractors will be monitoring local roads for ice and laying grit when needed

throughout winter. Motorists still need to drive carefully and reduce their speed when driving on grit.

Lincoln take down

Aoraki in UC competition

SPORTS

• By Jacob Page

IT WAS a case of job done for the

Lincoln Combined first XV as

they earned a 26-13 bonus point

win over Aoraki Combined on

Saturday.

Lincoln made the most of

home field advantage for the

second straight week of the UC

Championship by scoring four

tries to one.

Coach Mike Wilson wanted a

composed performance against

one of the competition’s lower

ranked teams.

He got it in patches.

“I thought we started really

In section A, Waihora have

a commanding four-point lead

over Saracens.

However, third-placed Celtic

and sixth-placed Lincoln are

split by just one competition

point.

Lincoln caused the log-jam

with a gritty 29-27 home win

over Celtic on Saturday.

Glenmark upset Saracens 32-

15, while Southbridge remained

in the top four with a 43-25

triumph over Ohoka which was

the first time the two teams had

ever met.

West Melton outlasted Hampstead,

winning 33-26, while

Waihora thumped BDI 49-20.

Things are even tighter in

section B with table-toppers

Springston and fourth-placed

Darfield split by just two points.

Springston, Prebbleton,

Rakaia and Darfield all have

the chance to finish top of the

section by the time the roundrobin

finishes.

Rakaia pipped Darfield 24-21,

while Springston easily accounted

for Hurunui 33-7.

Methven accounted for Oxford

held the ball,” Wilson said.

He said their early try probably

made his team over-confident.

“We get excited when we see

space and we were a little guilty

of trying to score on every play,

pushing the pass.”

Lincoln scored their second try

late in the first half to cement a

14-6 halftime advantage.

Wilson said his team was

forced to work harder on defence

in the second half.

“We had concerted periods of

defending our line and I thought

we did really well to hold them

out as long as we did,” he said.

While Lincoln continues

to have a few injuries pile up,

Wilson was happy with their

back-to-back wins.

Selwyn para-swimmer

breaks world butterfly

record in Ashburton

THERE’S BEEN more good

news for Selwyn Swim Club

para-swimmer Celyn Edwards.

A fortnight after being given

the Gold Heart Scholarship

from youth charity, Variety,

the talented swimmer has

gone 10sec under the S8 200m

butterfly record at a meeting in

Ashburton over the weekend.

His time of 2min 26.60sec was

not an official record because

the meet was not internationally

recognised, but it a promising

sign as he targets more national

meets and short-course

championships in the coming

months.

The Commonwealth Games

para-swimmer and his brother

Leuan, who is also an avid paraswimmer,

were both awarded

Gold Heart Scholarships earlier

this month,

The ultimate in

windows & doors

Ultimate Design and Renovation specialise in aluminium

windows, doors, conservatories and windbreaks. It is a

family owned business and owner Kelly Tyson prides

herself on the best customer service, the best product and

the best price.

Double glazing technology has advanced and Ultimate

Design and Renovation has a solid reputation when

it comes to manufacturing and installing high quality

double-glazed windows, whether into new builds or

existing homes. Older style single-glazed window frames

may be retro-fitted with double glazing to help create a

drier, warmer home. However, not all window frames may

be suitable for this and fitting new window units may be a

wiser choice, especially in the long term, Kelly says.

Ultimate Design and Renovation design consultants all

have the knowledge of the building industry to offer the

very best advice on what is right for your home. They are

able to discuss options with you and provide prices quickly.

They can also advise on several finance options available to

suit.

Kelly started the company nearly 10 years ago. Her

parents had an aluminium joinery business, so she has lots

of experience in the industry. The joinery is manufactured

locally in Christchurch, which means the prices and

waiting time can be reduced.

Ultimate Design and Renovation also designs,

manufactures and installs a wide range of doors, including

French doors, bifolds, and pick up sliders, with many

different configurations and styles available. Conservatories

are also a way to expand a home with sheltered, warm

space and are another quality product manufactured and

installed by Ultimate Design and Renovation.

With efficient production and delivery systems, 3D

image previews, the extrusion owned by Ultimate Design

and Renovation and experienced, fully qualified installers

who clean up after themselves, it is no surprise they have

a long list of happy clients, and a lot of repeat and referral

business.

Phillip J Fisher – total property

service and maintenance

Phillip J Fisher is a fully qualified painter

and decorator with 40 years of experience.

He’s owned several painting companies,

now operated by his sons. Phillip still offers

a range of painting and decorating services,

including interior and exterior, roof and

fence painting and staining, and Novelio

wall coverings – soft, decorative, durable

wall coverings that can be painted over. It is

stronger than conventional wallpaper and

can take the knocks in those hard working

service areas.

The benefits of maintaining your property

are well established. Preventive measures

save money in the long term; the value of

your house and property are maintained,

even increased; a sense of pride is fostered

when your most valuable asset is looking

good; and a well maintained property

can help when dealing with insurance

companies. Therefore, the services of a

qualified expert are relatively cost effective.

In addition to providing painting,

decorating and small handyman services,

Phillip also runs Kleenwash Property

Services (KWPS). Kleenwash services

include exterior house and building

washing, waterblasting paths, decks and

roofs, graffiti removal, moss lichen and

algae treatments, and silicon sealing of

roofs, concrete, bricks, and tiles.

KWPS also provide fly and spider pest

control services for interior and exterior,

and window cleaning, using chemical free,

pure water solution that won’t leave water

marks.

This is the ideal time of the year to have

the gutters and downpipes on your house

checked and cleared of debris, especially

for the leaves that are blowing around,

falling and blocking them. KWPS clears

gutters with a motor driven (which is not

dependent on your electricity) Kleenvac

system.

Along with all of these services, small

repair jobs can also be completed and

Phillip can put in place a maintenance

programme that will leave you worry free

when it comes to the care of your home.

Contact Phillip to discuss this, or any

other job you need done, on 021 228

Garages are not all equal

Not all garages are equal. Smaller

townhouses may have a single garage

whereas larger homes are more likely

to have double, triple or even four-car

garaging.

Having more garaging has been more

popular in recent times. It can add an ‘x’

factor leading to a speedier house sale and

potential for a higher selling price.

However, how much garage space do

you really need?

Before committing to an even larger

home, take time to consider the purpose of

your garage. This may avoid the situation

where one or more vehicles is parked up in

the driveway due to there being no room

in the garage after work bench, garden

equipment, bicycles and other items are

packed in.

An outside shed may take out some

clutter, as will moving on unused

possessions, with the result that a standard

double garage may be sufficient.

While a larger garage will add square

metres, extra garage space costs less than

in other areas of a home because there are

fewer features.

At planning stage, map out what will

be stored in the garage. Take account

of the space needed for motor vehicles,

bikes, work bench, tools and gardening

implements, if these will be kept in the

garage.

List all the items, measuring each to

assess how they will fit into the garage.

Manufacturers and

suppliers of superior quality

garage doors throughout

New Zealand.

Allow space for moving around and

getting into and out of the cars parked in

the garage, once bikes, ladders and the like

are stacked against the walls.

Attic trusses with a pull down ladder

could be included; a great way to gain

extra storage space for less used items.

Other features that will reduce clutter

may include built-in shelving and

storage cupboards, hanging devices like

hammocks suspended from the roof,

and bike hooks. These can make a huge

difference to the spaciousness of this very

practical part of the house.

Thinking of the garage doors themselves,

these can be custom made to fit. While

two or three single doors may be attractive

for accessing a larger garage, weigh up

garage door width and their practicality

should a larger vehicle need to be stored in

the garage at any time.

Including one or more windows will

allow natural light without the need to

open the garage door. The glass can be

frosted for privacy while a glass side

or back door will provide access to the

backyard. You might also include a

garage door through to the backyard.

Alternatively, a garage, carport, or parking

space down the side may provide storage

for a caravan, motorhome or boat and

access the yard.

Ensuring sufficient off-street parking

space out front is also often overlooked

and worth the investment.

Single doors into a larger garage are popular.

Three and four car garaging is popular.

Extra garage space costs less than other parts of a home.

One stop building and

decorating

Sometimes, getting tradespeople on site,

on time, and keeping them there, can be

a difficult task. Christchurch Building &

Decorating is the very definition of a onestop

operation and, with three builders,

four painters and labourers on the team

and electricians and plumbers also

available, there is little risk of being held up

by absentee tradies.

David Clearwater has been in the building

trade all his life, as a qualified plumber,

roofer, gasfitter and drain layer. These

days he heads up Christchurch Building &

Decorating. It is a team of very experienced

tradespeople that has served Christchurch

and Selwyn for more than 15 years.

While bathroom renovations and

installations are the specialty, the

experienced team makes the company

well able to carry out nearly any job

required – big or small. Whether painting

and decorating a single room or a large

commercial or office site, or fixing ridge

lines, replacing tiles, putting up or replacing

spouting and downpipes, David project

manages every job, and assures the quality

of work is top notch.

Keeping your house maintained is

essential to living comfortably and

keeping its value. Christchurch Building

& Decorating’s extensive list of services

also includes plastering, tiling, decking,

concrete pathways and brickwork. General

building and renovation work is also no

problem, as are roofing requirements,

whether repairs or a complete re-roof.

“We work hard to ensure every project we

undertake is completed quickly and with

perfect results,” David says.

A West Melton local, David believes in

community and supports local causes and

charities. The company’s Facebook page

has lots of examples and photos of the

projects that have been completed to the

greatest satisfaction of his clients.

If you require a small alteration or a

total renovation, a feature wall painted

The laundry – a

multipurpose space

Whether it is tucked into the corner of

the garage, incorporated into the scullery

(more common than you might think) or

is a dedicated room conveniently placed

in the heart of a busy home, the laundry is

used often, but often overlooked as to its

functionality. A well thought out laundry

can serve a number of needs, such as

storing those less used but necessary items,

whether tennis racquets or even garden

tools, or for washing and bathing pets.

The main purpose of the laundry is to

house the washing machine and dryer and

all things related – ironing board, laundry

basket and hampers as well as plenty of

bench space.

When it comes to the machinery, like

other appliances, there are many choices

to suit particular needs. For most, washing

machines are essential. Dryers not

necessarily so, although they do provide a

back-up in those extended periods of wet

weather.

With technology advancing as to energy

efficiency and ease of use and convenience,

and with brands and specifications to

dazzle, the main question for consumers

these days is: side by side or stacked separate

appliances, or a washer dryer combo?

Washer dryer combos are the ultimate

in convenience. Put clothes in, push

buttons, take the clothes out later, dry and

smelling good. Such convenience comes at

somewhat of a price, but it may be a price

you are willing to pay. Capacity tends to be

less than conventional washers, and some

models use huge amounts of water in the

drying process. Models that don’t use

water in the drying process tend to be very

expensive.

Running costs and performance are

generally equivalent to conventional

separate appliances and combo machines

can be used independently so you have a

normal washer, but still have a dryer backup

in bad weather or when time is short.

The combos’ footprint is smaller so they

are great where space is short, especially as

they don’t need to be vented externally.

There are some clever ideas to make

the laundry a multipurpose space. A

retractable surface for folding; built-in

clothing racks for airing clothes and drying

delicates; a deep tub for bathing pets or

washing large items such as the bbq plates;

plenty of storage space for the overflow

items from the kitchen and other things

you will probably never use, but want to

keep anyway.

When designing a house, don’t overlook

the laundry. With a bit of thought and

research, it can be a very useful space.

Many building companies specialise in

renovating laundry spaces and will be able

to give great advice.

AUTUMN is here...

so its a great time to start

thinking about your new lawn.

and give you a free quotation!

Fast as, cheap

as, sweet as

Kiwigas’ owner Malcolm Ryder is proud

to offer, “the best prices, and the best

service” on gas bottle filling and delivery.

“We have a great team of people prepared

to go the extra mile,” he says.

That is a winning formula. Whether it

is an emergency delivery to a rural area,

provide a honest, good service at a great

price.

be Jody or Malcolm who answer the phone

and you won’t be passed around to several

operators before talking to the “right

person”. They know their stuff.

At Kiwigas there are not contracts. That

means you are not locked into a long-term

commitment with the promise of something

cheap up front that actually turns out to be

expensive. With Kiwigas, the service and

what keeps customers coming back.

delivering 9kg and 45kg gas bottles

to residences

and businesses,

quick delivery is

HOME PROFESSIONALS

SELWYN TIMES

A passion for

landscaping

Now is the best time to consider what needs to be done

around the outdoors at your home. Revive Landscaping

is just the team to make those considerations a lot

easier. Ross Legg owns the business and has 20 years of

experience in landscape gardening. Whether you are

planning on putting your house on the market soon or

in spring, or if you want to create a bit of an oasis for

summer, right now is the time to get it going. It will

then be well ready when the warmer months arrive.

Revive is a passionate team. It offers a range of

landscaping services, from a general tidy up to a fully

rejuvenated yard, seeded grass and ready lawn, raised

garden beds, and the construction of paths, patios, and

pergolas.

Ross, George, and Lucas also pride themselves on

being a small, friendly team. They like to focus on

getting the job done right first time, and many satisfied

customers attest that they achieve it. They have worked

on a huge variety of home garden projects, and enjoy

creating a new masterpiece every time. Commercial

landscape design projects include No4 Bar in Merivale,

and McDonalds Rolleston.

Once the landscaping and garden design is complete,

maintaining it is often a task made difficult with busy

schedules so for a reasonable cost, Ross and the team

will establish a maintenance programme that will keep

your yard looking its best year round.

“We have a real passion for what we do,” Ross

says. Christchurch and Rolleston based, the Revive

Landscaping team are ready right now to create a

new landscape design, or to restore and rejuvenate

your tired or overgrown yard with native and exotic

plantings, hedges, topiaries, garden sculptures,

pathways and more.

A call to Ross now will assure your outdoor area

is ready for sale, or is picturesque for entertaining

or just relaxing, when spring and summer come

around. Contact Ross at 027 222 0388 or via the

website at www.revivelandscaping.co.nz

consider what needs

to be done around the

Time to get your garlic growing

IN THE PAST, May has been

regarded as the beginning of

winter, especially in cooler parts

of the country, however these

days temperatures can fluctuate

quite dramatically.

Daylight hours are shorter,

frosts will be occurring in central

and southern regions, but regardless

of the temperatures, it is

time for winter gardening tasks

to commence.

TASTE: May is the recommended month for planting garlic. It should sprout in three weeks.

excellent selection for planting.

In the vege patch

Harvest vegetables that were

planted in mid-to-late summer.

This includes artichoke

(Jerusalem), beetroot, broccoli,

brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower,

carrots, celery, leeks,

onions, parsnips, potatoes, silver

beet and turnips. For continuity

of harvesting, keep planting

seedlings of cabbage, cauliflower,

broccoli, spinach and silverbeet.

You can also sow seeds of broad

beans, onions, peas, radish and

spinach directly into the soil.

May is the recommended

month for planting garlic. Cloves

should be planted 40mm deep

and 60mm apart. They should

sprout around three to four

weeks after planting.

In areas of your vege garden

where there are no winter vegetables

growing, sow green manure

crops eg; lupins and mustard.

They should be dug into the soil

in late winter/early spring and

will improve the organic content

of your soil.

Strawberries

May is the traditional month

for planting new strawberry

plants. Prepare the soil thoroughly;

add compost. Create

mounds 200mm above soil

level to ensure good drainage

and early warming of the soil in

spring. Plant into the mounds at

150-200mm apart.

Flower garden

Annuals

Add fresh compost to your

flower beds before planting out

your winter flowering annuals.

Varieties to plant include Alyssum,

Aquilegia, Calendulas, Cineraria,

Cornflowers, Larkspur,

Pansies, Primulas, Stock, Violas

and Wallflowers.

Perennials

As most perennials are dormant

this time of the year, it’s a

good time to divide them where

they have become overcrowded

or move them to another part

of the garden. Garden Centres

now have stock of new seasonal

perennials so there will be an

Fruit trees

It’s pruning time for pip and

stone fruit trees including;

apples, apricots, nectarines,

peaches and plums. Grapes can

also be pruned, however wait

until you have harvested your

kiwifruit before pruning vines.

Roses

Amazingly, in warmer areas,

some roses are still flowering

such as; Icebergs and Graeme

Thomas. However, in cooler

areas where leaves have fallen,

plants can be pruned. Apply a

winter spray of a copper compound

to help prevent typical

rose diseases reappearing in

spring. New roses will be in garden

centres towards the end of

May. Chose new specimens carefully,

noting which ones perform

best in your area.

Ornamental trees and

shrubs

New stock is beginning to

appear in your local plant shops,

especially camellias. If you are

planning a new garden or adding

new ornamental trees or shrubs

to an existing one, always allow

enough room for individual

specimens to grow to maturity.

Prepare the site well for plantings,

ensuring there is enough

drainage so roots do not become

waterlogged.

Lawns

Growth will now be slowing

and low-lying lawns will begin

to become saturated. Install

additional drainage coil where

required and before your lawn

becomes too wet.

Hedges

Final tidy up time for your

hedges. Do not undertake major

trimming as there will be little or

no new growth until spring.

Keep up to date with landscaping

LANDSCAPING IS a wonderful

pastime enjoyed by many.

It provides a natural beauty

and needs no ornaments or other

attractive items to help achieve

its magnificence. What it does

need, however, is a little TLC from

you and great ideas to keep the

landscape design ever changing

and up to date.

Landscape design is an art that

not only gives you the freedom to

express yourself, but also makes

your home more beautiful and

inviting. There are many methods

of landscape design to explore. You

can trim your hedges or bushes in

a decorative manner. For instance,

you may want to cut every other

hedge a foot shorter than the next

to produce a rolling effect.

You could also put a large

decorative fountain in the middle

of your yard. This is a costly

option but, if you can afford it,

looks gorgeous.

If you are considering landscape

design, or have already dabbled in

it a bit, you know the importance

of working with an experienced

landscaper.

For information on finding a

professional in your area, check

out the internet.

Selwyn Property SEPTEMBER 20

Selling your property?

First impressions count,

get rid of the clutter.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that getting rid of clutter is one of the keys to selling property

fast and at a good price. Good storage systems can look cool in their own right, and help organise your clutter.

Good storage ideas are abundant and

all manner of products are available

to make homes more minimalistic.

While it’s nice to buy your storage from

designer homewares stores, the likes

of The Warehouse and Kmart sell many

simple products for masking clutter.

Fabric storage cubes are a great start

for disguising the clutter. They fit neatly

into shelves and wardrobes and thanks

to competition from the big department

stores, can cost $10 or less each. You’ll

also find wicker, felt, cotton, woven and

metal baskets for a song.

Another clever idea, is to

buy a cheap set of melamine

shelves for use in your

wardrobe. A set of shelves

does much the same job as

an expensive wardrobe fit

out. You can move the shelf

heights to accommodate

shoes and boots. It looks

good, but costs little.

Another wardrobe

organisation is a Wardrobe

Starter Kit from Hardware

stores. While you’re there,

check out bicycle storage hooks as well.

As well as being practical, storage

products can make a design statement.

The important thing is to be consistent.

don’t, for example, buy storage cubes

in different colours. If you’re looking for

really clever home storage ideas take

a tip from the tiny home movement.

Catherine Foster who wrote Small House

Living, downsized her life to under 90sqm

and has interviewed Kiwis who live in

architecturally designed homes of that

size or smaller.

Each and every house in

Foster’s book uses storage

effectively to tame their

belongings. Some have done

it on the smell of an oily rag,

sometimes buying pre-cut heavy

duty plywood that only has to be screwed

together, she says.

Garages and lofts are house vendors’

friends. The garage is one of the few

places in the house that buyers won’t

be put off by a little extra stuff, but the

more that can be hidden away in stacked

crates the better. Consider using flat pack

cupboards that can be taken with you.

“The most effective way of using these is

to find a wall where the whole area can be

covered floor to ceiling,”

“Simple carpentry like this is dIY level

if you’re handy, or get a handyman in for

a few hours, but make sure it is excluded

from the list of chattels on the sale

agreement.”

Loft spaces are often wasted space

in Kiwi homes. A relatively cheap way to

open up the space is to install a loft ladder.

You will be amazed at what people use

the additional storage space for, once

they’ve installed it.

Cheap clever storage ideas aren’t just

limited to the interior of the house, garage

and loft. The Warehouse, Mitre 10 & other

hardware stores sell garden storage to

hide away things usually left outside.

Foldable garden storage boxes that cost

from around $99 can be used to store

garden tools, outdoor cushions and pool

paraphernalia. The next step up is a cheap

garden shed for around $200 upwards

from Mitre 10, Bunnings Warehouse and

other stores.

Finally, if you’re looking for more

inspiration Google “storage ideas”, search

the same on Pinterest, or check out books

on the subject from your local library. You’ll

be amazed at how many everyday items

can be repurposed for storage at the same

time as adding design excellence to your

home.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Wallpaper –

expressions of

personality

Wallpaper is once again chic. Some may argue that

it never went out of fashion but either way, walls that

more recently have been painted, or at best adorned

with plain style and soft coloured wallpaper, are

suddenly sporting bright colours and bold patterns.

Adorning walls is nothing new. Forms of it date

back 40,000 years but it wasn’t until the invention of

paper, around 100 AD in China, and its applications

developed in Renaissance Europe, the introduction

of what would be recognised today as “wallpaper”

is seen. Before then, large tapestries were used to

brighten up walls and to some degree act as insulation,

but these were very expensive and only the superwealthy

could afford them. By the late 1700s, the

only mildly-wealthy could suddenly afford the newly

invented, patterned paper that was being pasted to

walls all over Britain and France.

Wallpaper arrived in America in the late 1800s and

large panoramic scenes were fashionable. As printing

technologies advanced, wallpaper became one of the

most popular household items in the western world.

Fast forward to the modern homes of today – plain

is out, bold is in. These days, so much of a home is an

expression of personality – a statement that defines, or

re-defines, a space. Wallpaper is part functional, part

artistic.

Big florals, industrial textures, geometric patterns,

tropical themes, pop art, and stripes are all popular.

Browse the Resene library (www.resene.co.nz) and

other suppliers’ websites such as Aspiring Walls

(www.aspiringwalls.co.nz) and you very quickly see

the variety of wall coverings available. Children’s

themes, graffiti walls, retro throwbacks – some with

a contemporary twist – the possibilities are nearly

endless. You can even design your own, unique

wallpaper using one of your own photos, or chose one

from a gallery of options, have it printed, delivered,

and hang it yourself. Or perhaps call in an expert to do

it. Phillip J. Fisher (021 228 2889) or David Clearwater

(027 480 0967) are two such local tradesmen who are

able to do it.

One way to see some fantastic examples of new

trends in wallpaper is to visit some of the show homes

in Selwyn. The wallpapers pictured are on walls in

Peter Ray Homes, Today Homes and Trident Homes,

Faringdon show homes.

Children’s themes, graffiti walls,

retro throwbacks – some with

a contemporary twist – the

possibilities are nearly endless.

Looking for a property – what really counts?

You are in the market for a new

property, scrolling the Internet,

examining properties for sale and

zeroing in on those with potential. They

might be in locations that offer cheaper

land, larger houses, or convenience to

work or school.

You may have visited show homes

and open homes becoming confused,

overwhelmed or swept away with

emotional factors like having

everything new, or extra features such

as three car garaging.

To be happy with your choice, list the

features that you need, considering:

• Family space – Is there room for

the children to play indoors and for

television and entertainment units?

Should this be open plan or separated?

• Kitchen – What needs to be in

your kitchen? How serious are you

about a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim

or something that offers a practical

solution to the way you use your

kitchen?

• Bedroom sizes – What are optimum

sizes? Smaller bedrooms may translate

to slightly lower building costs while

extra space can be useful. When

looking at existing homes, consider

whether the size of each bedroom is

sufficient.

• Garaging – A standard double

garage once two cars are parked there

offers little space for the toys. What

toys do you have and could they live

with the lawnmower in a garden shed,

a cheaper option to three car garaging?

If the budget allows and a larger garage

with workshop is important, make it a

selection priority.

• Size of land – Lifestyle properties

offer space for children, pets, hobbies,

an expansive garden and perhaps a

home-run business but they require

work so are not for everyone and a

compact section might be more sensible

if a tight budget or busy lifestyle.

• Bathrooms – Second and third

bathrooms are great in homes with

teenagers and a wet shower room is

ideal for young children. A bath might

be fashionable though is often not used

and its absence could mean a more

spacious bathroom.

• Laundry – Would a laundry in the

garage do the job?

• Storage – How much storage do

you need? Weigh up what can truly be

stored in the garage once vehicles are

in, a preference in winter. Garages vary

in size so check the size to ensure your

vehicles will fit. Look also at where

else the house offers storage capacity

such as in hall cupboards, a large hot

water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes

(check their width and depth), walkin

robe, attic storage trusses, as well as

the potential for hooks and shelving

in the garage for bikes, tools, garden

equipment and even kayaks.

• Off-street parking – How many

vehicles can be parked on the driveway?

Will this space be sufficient?

• Garden - Is there sufficient space

for your children to play or for

entertaining?

A checklist will allow you to determine

what will suit your needs, the point of

the exercise, saving you time looking at

properties or potential house designs

while assisting you to decide whether

to buy a new or existing home with

both options having advantages and

disadvantages.
