Glentunnel teen Manaia

Davies is off to San

Diego next month for

an international dance

competition. ​

• By Emily O’Connell

GLENTUNNEL teenager

Manaia Davies is off to San

Diego next month in a team of

22 dancers representing New

Zealand in an international

competition.

Page 18, 19 Page 22

From Glentunnel to San Diego

The 13-year-old was asked to

be in the team by Kiwi choreographer,

Kiel Tutin, who has

worked with stars such as Jennifer

Lopez.

Manaia, who has been dancing

since she was three-yearsold,

says she was “shocked” by

the invitation and is looking

forward to competing in Body

Rock Junior.

She’s been travelling to

Auckland each weekend for

practice.

“It’s really hard-out, it’s full

hands-on training and we

run the set over, over and over

again,” she said.

The Burnside High

School student spends most

of her spare time training or

teaching.

$40k to fix

council

homes

damaged

by meth

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

DISTRICT council-owned

houses in Darfield have had

to be decontaminated from

methampetamine before they can

be sold.

The three dwellings are part of a

portfolio of houses and a section in

Ritso St the council is dispersing.

It has cost just over $40,000 to

decontaminate the properties.

Insurance has met about $30,000

of the bill, the district council the

rest.

The houses are on the market

for between $300,000 to $355,000.

Former mayor Bill Woods says

he is concerned that money from

the sales will not go back into

Malvern community.

In the early 2000s Mr Woods

and late district councillor Paul

Stewart was involved in putting a

case forward that if the properties

were sold the money had to go

back into the community.

“In fairness, the money gained

from the sale of these properties

must be returned to the area from

where it was collected,” he said.

The district council’s property

and commercial manager Douglas

Marshall said yesterday the

sale proceeds will be credited to

council district funds.

from the editor’s desk

WEEDONS AND Templeton residents

are facing a near mission impossible

and expensive task if the experience of

people in Yaldhurst is anything to go by

(see page 3).

A quarry will be built as close as 100m

from residential properties in Yaldhurst, in spite of medical

authorities saying it’s not a good idea.

Yaldhurst residents are going to appeal the decision to the

Environment Court. But the legal costs will be huge. They are

unlikely to get any change out of $100k.

Next cab of the rank is Fulton Hogan’s plan to quarry in the

Templeton-Weedons area. But, if the Yaldhurst experience is

anything to go, the need for materials for our roads outweighs

residents’ health.

Strange that.

with its own staff v students

Residents prepare for legal battle over quarry

• By Anan Zaki

WEEDONS AND Templeton

residents are prepared for a long

fight, should Fulton Hogan’s

planned quarry in their area be

given the green light.

It comes as Yaldhurst residents

will this week lodge an appeal and

prepare for a costly court battle

to challenge a decision to allow

quarry expansion in the area.

Templeton Residents’ Association

chairman Garry Kilday said

if Fulton Hogan’s plans for a

resource consent application is

granted, the association would

also consider taking legal action.

“We’ll take whatever action we

can. We may not be the only ones

that are considering this.

“It’s wrong and there will be

lawyers and I believe someone will

sue these people,” Mr Kilday said.

The only deterrent in taking

legal action was the cost, he said.

He believed the residents could

win the Resource Management

Act process, when the company

lodges an application.

“However, the problem we have

is that if we win the RMA and

their application is turned down,

they will go to the Environment

Court, which will also cost us,”

Mr Kilday said.

But the residents would do

whatever they can work together

to protect their habitat, he said.

“We’re fighting for our way of

life here, we’re fighting for the

healthiness and the cleanliness of

our environment.

“That’s why ECan is here in the

first place, to protect us from this

sort of thing.”

Fulton Hogan has faced resistance

from Templeton residents

after it put forward a plan for a

170ha quarry on Dawsons, Curraghs

and Jones Rds in January.

ECan is yet to receive a resource

consent application from

Fulton Hogan.

The company announced in

April that it would not lodge

an application before July and

is awaiting for the results of the

Yaldhurst air quality monitoring

programme, which was expected

to be released by ECan in July.

•An article last week headlined

‘Fears Yaldhurst decision sets a

precedent’ incorrectly stated that

Road Metals was given permission

to increase the size of its

Yaldhurst quarry by Environment

Canterbury. The decision to grant

the consent was made by an independent

hearing panel appointed

by the city council and ECan.

District’s fuel prices reach record high

Consumers

warned cost of

food could rise

• By Julia Evans

UNITED STATES president

Donald Trump is being blamed

for the record high price of petrol

in the district..

Some service stations were

charging $2.29.9 a litre for

91-octane petrol, the record high

which was reached last week,

while others are charging slightly

less at $2.25.9.

Infometrics economist Brad

Olsen said the

main reason

was President

Trump’s recent

dealings

in Iran.

“The main

driver is the

Brad Olsen

overseas price.

West Texas

Intermediate

crude oil has shot up over the last

couple of days and that’s largely

because Trump and Iran has

shaken up the playing field,” Mr

Olsen said.

President Trump announced

recently that the US was walking

away from the Iran nuclear deal

organised between Russia, the

United Kingdom, France, China

and the US in 2015.

The Selwyn Times tweeted

President Trump for reaction. He

did not respond.

Fuel prices around the country

hit record highs last week. There

were reports of stations on

Waiheke Island charging $2.51 a

litre and $2.45 in Wanaka.

In Auckland, prices were

between $2.07 and $2.17 a

litre.

Mr Olsen said Canterbury was

hit harder than Auckland due to

the “Gull-effect,” caused by the

introduction of the low priced

Gull petrol stations in 2013.

He said there was also a lack of

competition between stations in

Canterbury.

And relief is not in sight.

“We can’t really pick when

they’ll go back down or if they’ll

go back down . . . it will be interesting

to see how prices change

and regional discrepancies,” Mr

Olsen said.

There have been calls for the

Government to address the issue.

Minister of Energy and

Resources Megan Woods said

it is “very concerning” that

Cantabrians are paying so much

for petrol and it was clear the

market is “not functioning as it

should be.”

“Obviously international

events and the declining New

Zealand dollar will have some

role to play, but our focus is that

people are paying a fair price,”

she said.

Dr Woods said the law is being

changed to give the Commerce

HUNTER

Commission the power to conduct

market studies and compel

the release of evidence to work

out why petrol south of Wellington

was much higher.

Mr Olsen said it would

have the biggest impact on

lower income families, who

would have to change their

budgets drastically or change

the way they travel.

Red Bus chief executive Paul

McNoe said it had not noticed

an immediate increase in patronage.

“But it is possible. The further

it goes up and the longer it stays

that high. It depends on people’s

preference and their tolerance

for prices. We’re always happy

to welcome new customers,” he

said.

New Zealand Taxi Federation

Canterbury president Stan Gane

said the industry was “massively”

impacted, but was not considering

putting prices up.

“We’ve changed most of the

fleet in Christchurch to hybrid

and are keeping prices as low as

we possibly can, but every cent

that fuel goes up is less wages

and less groceries for staff,” he

said.

Mr Olsen said consumers

could also expect to feel the

brunt of petrol prices as freight

companies would raise prices for

retailers, who would likely pass it

on to customers.

“Largely we’ll see it in food

prices. It will be interesting to

see how much retailers put it up

because consumers are going to

get pretty annoyed with having

to pay more for fuel as well as

goods.”

GOING AWAY THIS QUEEN’S BIRTHDAY WEEKEND?

For those of you heading off for a break this long weekend please take

the time to check real-time travel information before you head off and

be prepared for increased traffic volumes.

Drivers have two options for travel in the Upper

South Island between Picton and Christchurch.

• SH1 via Kaikōura is now open 24/7 but

construction is ongoing (north and south)

with delays and some single lanes.

• The alternate Picton to Christchurch route

via the Lewis Pass is open 24/7 (but check

before travel as winter conditions may cause

the Lewis Pass to be closed temporarily).

Both routes will be busy so whichever one you

choose the NZ Transport Agency advises you

allow plenty of time for your trip, especially

if you are catching a ferry or are on a tight

schedule.

The NZ Transport Agency encourages

everyone heading off for a break to ‘know before

you go’ and check the holiday hotspots map:

www.nzta.govt.nz/hotspots. The map collates

data from previous Queen’s Birthday Weekend

journeys and advises on the best time to leave to

avoid the rush.

With the change in season it is also time to

prepare for winter driving to stay safe:

• Take the time to check your vehicle is in

good condition – tyres/spare tyre, indicators,

windshield wipers, lights

• Be prepared by travelling with warm clothes,

food, water and a fully charged cell phone

• A flat battery is the most common cause

of winter breakdowns. If it’s more than

five years old it may struggle in the cold.

Get it checked and replaced if necessary

• Keep at least a quarter of a tank of fuel in

case of any unexpected delays

Drivers need to be patient, cautious and

courteous. Take your time and be prepared

for the unexpected.

And remember, over holiday periods many

drivers are on unfamiliar roads, so please

be patient as we are all in this situation at

some stage.

HOW TO STAY UP TO DATE:

• Plan your journey between Picton and

Christchurch and get real-time information

via www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c or call

0800 4 HIGHWAYS (0800 44 44 49).

We recommend checking at least two hours

before you travel and while on your trip

• Check the MetService weather forecast

before you head away

Joanne

McDonald

• By Emily O’Connell

WINTER CLOTHING, dinners

out, family trips – the pinch at

the pump is causing residents

in the district to tighten their

budgets and make sacrifices.

On Friday, Selwyn Times visited

Rolleston to see how people

were affected.

Rolleston resident Tracey

McLay has recently moved from

Papanui and is noticing the difference.

“To get to and from work, to

drop kids off and sports – it’s

getting very expensive . . . it’s sort

of cutting down in other areas,”

she said.

When asked whether she has

noticed the hike in the price of

petrol, Maxine Freemantle just

said it was “ridiculous.”

“I’ve got a young daughter and

Katherine Johnson with

son, Oliver.

James Wallis

Martin

Thomas Maher

we need fuel to get to work and

that, and she has to miss out

. . . we can’t go and buy her new

things like warm winter gear,

we’ve got to wait for a couple

more weeks to save up,” she said.

Thomas Maher works in

Rolleston but lives in Kaiapoi

and says the price hike has restricted

what he can do.

“Really damaging to my budget

especially. I’ve got to cut down

in other areas such as food . . . for

now all I’ve been able to do is go

to and from work,” he said.

For Burwood resident James

Wallis Martin, the drive into

Rolleston each week day to drop

his daughter at Waitaha School is

having an effect.

“Every day taking my daughter

to school costs me an extra $10

Maxine

Freemantle

Tracey McLay

Motorists feel the fuel price pain

. . . it just means we don’t buy

things, we don’t go out to dinner.

We’ve had to be cautious

already,” he said.

Mr Wallis Martin thinks there

should be a subsidy on electric

vehicles so more people can

“upgrade.”

Rolleston resident Katherine

Johnson said she usually takes

her children to Margaret Mahy

Family Playground on the weekend

but it’s just “not doable at the

moment.”

Joanne McDonald lives in

Burnham and says the hike is

“terrible.”

“I think it’s actually quite sad

it’s going up . . . what can you do

about?” she said.

Miss McDonald said the

increase means costs have to be

cut.

How to save money on fuel

•Make sure your tyres are

inflated correctly. The

Automobile Association

found incorrect tyre

pressure uses nearly eight

per cent more fuel.

•Avoid rush hour. Turning

your engine off if you’re stuck

in traffic for longer than

30 seconds is better than

keeping the car running

according to the AA, and

the Motor Trade Association

recommends planning

ahead to run errands during

off-peak times.

•Don’t speed. According to

the MTA, fuel consumption

increases by about six per

cent for every 10km/h faster

you travel over 90km/h.

•Keep your load light.

The more weight in your

car means more petrol is

needed to propel it.

•Use your air conditioner,

but only when necessary.

Opening your windows to

cool the car down is actually

less fuel efficient than using

the A/C because it creates

drag. However, blasting

the A/C or leaving the back

window demister on after

they’ve done their job is an

unnecessary drain on fuel.

•Take care of your

car. Regular service

could reduce your fuel

consumption by up to 20

per cent

Skate park back on track

THE REDESIGNED Lincoln

Domain Skate Park is expected to

be completed by the end of next

month.

Initially, it was due to open in

late April but the district council

decided to make it safer after

residents shared concerns.

The skate park is designed to

predominantly cater for children

and amateur skaters.

The district council chose

experienced skate park designer

Dave North to review the incomplete

skate park and make it

more suitable.

“The changes that we’ve made

to the skate park design will ensure

flow. A small learners bowl

will lead on to an intermediate

bowl,” Mr North said.

The main design changes includes

that the Darfield community

had invested as part of a land

exchange proposal.

In the early 2000s, the district

council proposed a reserve

exchange to enable the reserve

into a mini-bowl, swapping the

stairs for a large hubba ramp and

rail, constructing a new 1200cm

deep bowl, a ditch-style banked

area and smaller flat ledges and

Call for performing arts facility

• By Emily O’Connell

CENTRESTAGE Rolleston

wants a local performing arts

facility to be included in the

Long Term Plan.

CentreStage’s president Phil

Dean spoke at the district

council’s LTP public hearing last

week about the idea.

The group, which formed earlier

this year, believe the district,

particularly Rolleston, needs a

space for the arts.

Mr Dean,

who is the

Ashburton

sub-area commander,

said

in his written

submission

that compared

Phil Dean

to sports, “performing

arts

is the poor

cousin.”

He said although there are

“some pretty amazing providers,”

what the area doesn’t have

is somewhere for people to

rehearse or perform in large

groups.

Mr Dean believes there is

scope in the new sporting facility

at Foster Park for performing

arts.

“Space like a dance studio,

rehearsal rooms, performance

areas will meet the increasing

demands of the performing arts

community,” he said.

District councillor Craig

Watson said it is “probably too

early to say” whether a performing

arts space could go in Foster

Park.

“I think we are working on

a town centre precinct at the

moment and obviously that has

a cultural aspect to it, so that’s

probably where it naturally lies,”

he said.

Cr Watson said CentreStage is

“fantastic” for how it brings likeminded

people together.

Mr Dean said the group

needs a “disproportionate”

amount of funding because

performing arts in Rolleston is

in a “fledgling” state compared

with sport which already has

facilities.

Cr Watson said it’s vital the

district council provides an opportunity

for performing arts

but it needs to make sure it’s

sustainable.

PROPOSAL:

CentreStage

Rolleston

believes the

area needs a

performing arts

facility included

in the district

council’s Long

Term Plan. ​

“I think for Selwyn it’s really

important that we have performing

arts well supported and

catered for,” he said.

The district council is

holding its deliberations today

and tomorrow and expects to

formally adopt the plan in late

June.

Old fire station demolished

Commissioned by

THE WEST Melton Volunteer

Rural Fire Force will be

moving into its new station

next month.

Its original station, built

about 53 years ago, was demolished

last week.

The new building, which is

more than three times bigger,

is almost complete with work

on the forecourt still being

carried out.

West Melton deputy chief

fire officer Chris Caldwell said

prior to the commencement

of Fire and Emergency New

Zealand last year, it had always

been funded and managed by

the district council.

“It was decided a few years

ago we needed a new station.

We acquired a second truck

and a ute and had nowhere to

put them,” he said.

Mr Caldwell said the old station

had a lot of problems and

the district council agreed to

fund a new station.

“Before the build started,

the FENZ merger occurred.

Selwyn agreed to give the

money they were going to

spend on it to FENZ to keep

the project going,” he said.

Construction started in

mid-January and Mr Caldwell

said the new station will be

able to store four vehicles.

“The training room is large

and together with a decent

kitchen and office and equipment

store, it could be multiuse,”

he said.

Mr Caldwell said their are

currently 16 crew but the

building has locker space for

up to 24 volunteers.

“At the moment that is sufficient

for the two trucks and we

are not taking on anyone else,

however, we are always keen to

put people on a waiting list if

they contact us,” he said.

The Selwyn District Council would like to thank all of

wants to do some good during

his social studies trip to the

Pacific Island in July.

During the 10-day trip, 21

Lincoln High School students

will be helping out at the

in Apia.

As part of the social studies

class, each student will set

themselves a personal social

action. Joe wants to collect and

donate about 50 football shirts

for the children and teach them

some ball skills.

His mother, Jane Williams,

says he’s a keen footballer and

plays for both the school and

Halswell United’s top side

Getting people

moving

aim of class

ROLLESTON Community Centre’s

Move it to Music class is getting

residents in the district off the

couch.

The class, run by an experienced

tutor, uses music, fun equipment

and a sense of humour to get attendees

moving. It’s aimed at those with

arthritis or the less active who want

to ‘use it not lose it.’

Kathleen Johnston, a visitor to the

district who attends the sessions,

has had two hip replacements and a

back operation and says the class is

a great opportunity to exercise without

too much strain on her joints.

“This class encouraged me to

get off the couch and get my body

moving following my operations,”

she said.

Instructor Jan McKay has been

running similar classes for nearly 20

years and says she enjoys seeing the

benefits that they have for attendees,

both physically and socially.

“The class allows them to get their

bodies moving in a safe environment,”

she said.

The Move it to Music class is held

on Wednesdays from 1.15–2.15pm

at the Rolleston Community Centre,

and costs $3 per session. No bookings

required.

•For more information phone

the centre on 347 2882 or ask

at the counter.

Chance for a visit to Gansu

A SELWYN resident or

someone who works locally,

has the chance to visit Gansu

in north-west China as

applications to travel to the

district’s sister city are now

open.

Each year the district council’s

Selwyn sister city committee

sends a local representative

to Gansu for a month-long

exchange.

This year the exchange, which

has the opportunity to join

delegates from about 20 different

countries, will go from

September 1 to 30 in Lanzhou,

the capital of Gansu.

This fellowship is funded by

the Gansu Provincial People’s

Government of China.

Past fellows have come from

backgrounds in agriculture, exporting

and local government.

Last year’s fellow, Phillip Millar,

said the experience was a

great opportunity to learn more

about the region of Gansu and

to see some amazing sights.

“A highlight for me was

definitely exploring the City

of Lanzhou which runs along

the beautiful Yellow River and

visiting the rainbow coloured

mountains in Zhangye Danxia

National Geological Park.

I also loved visiting the

Crescent Lake and sand dunes

in Dunhuang. I had never seen

anything like these amazing

landforms before, and my

appreciation for the beautiful

landscapes of China was increased

markedly,” he said.

Gansu Province is on the Silk

Rd and close to the Gobi Desert.

It is the Chinese Province in

which New Zealander Rewi Alley

established schools.

Mr Alley was born in Springfield

and this connection is a

key part of the sister city relationship

between Selwyn and

Shandan.

The Gansu Fellowship is

open to anyone aged between

22 and 50 who lives or works

in the district – and is ready to

embrace an exciting challenge

and opportunity for personal

growth.

The Selwyn Gallery marks

their 20th Anniversary

The Selwyn Gallery, Darfield is marking the

20th anniversary of its opening on Friday,

1 June 2018 with its exhibition, “The Revisit”.

Philip Baldwin, Malvern Community Arts

Council Chairperson commented: “We are

thrilled that six artists who showed their works

in 1998 at the first Selwyn Gallery exhibition—

Simon Edwards, Mike Glover, Svetlana Orinko,

Marcia Scott, Pattison Parkin, and Hamish

Wright—have agreed to exhibit an all-new lineup

of art work for the Gallery’s June exhibition”.

Simon Edwards’ paintings possess an

atmosphere of gentle melancholy. He says,

“The landscape has been the source of my

work…I use this as a departure point…setting

up a dialogue between myself, the medium

and the landscape”. Although his works seem

to represent actual places, they are more

often than not “imaginative” scenes built from

fragments of memory or a part of a landscape,

even a photograph.

Mike Glover works predominantly in pastel,

exploring the lands, skies, and waters of the

South Island. “Looking down on a river winding

through the hills or a spectacular sunset…there

is a sense of awe of peace and of harmony

with nature,” is how he describes his work.

Mike is active in the community art scene,

having helped to establish Down by the Liffey

Gallery in Lincoln.

Svetlana Orinko was able to begin her

painting career in earnest after immigrating

to New Zealand in 1992. She paints in oil

and watercolour, and is attracted to subject

matter with strong abstract patterns. Svetlana

describes her style as contemporary realism,

and has enjoyed much success as an artist.

She has a growing reputation as one of the

country’s top watercolour artists and teacher.

Patterson Parkin’s distinct style show

different viewpoints at the same time, within

the same space, suggesting their threedimensional

form and creating the illusion of

depth. Working in bright colours and patterns

heighten the diverse subject matter he depicts,

including landscapes, nudes, musicians, and

abstracts. He has also transitioned into wall

assemblage, consisting of canvas covered

shapes, both textured and painted.

Marcia Scott’s medium of choice is usually

acrylic, although she has moved from paper

to canvas in recent years. Marcia also dabbles

in watercolours and oils, and she loves the

challenge of developing ideas with new media,

including laser-cut timber panels as canvases,

a range of “dust collector” decorative blocks,

and the supreme hat award in the 2013 New

Zealand Hat and Hair Art Awards.

Hamish Wright’s travels in the Ukraine

in 1998–99 and in Kiev during 2003—2004

continue to influence his artistic style. His work

explores iconography and propaganda of the

Soviet Union, particularly commemorative

badges, posters, and other Space Age

memorabilia, creating works that are visually

appealing and full of fun. Using bold colour,

well defined forms, and a high level of surface

finish suggest Pop Art and nostalgia.

“We hope all of our supporters will visit the

Selwyn Gallery during the month of June to see

how the styles of these artists have evolved

over the past 20 years”, Mr Baldwin concluded.

Selwyn Gallery is open daily (except

Mondays) from 10am to 4pm. Please come

along and enjoy the variety of works on display.

A catalogue is available for each exhibition.

this trial, with incredible support

shown through the high numbers

on the buses each day.

In total, we moved over 550

people over the course of the

trial.

This data will be presented to

Environment Canterbury next

month by a small group of youth

councillors.

This trial showed a clear and

urgent need for transportation

through our more rural areas

and showed a strong indication

of isolation – not only in youth,

but older generations also.

By running this service,

residents were also able to have

greater access to council facilities.

The use of the bus was different

for everyone – for some, a swim

at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre,

but for others, taking in the

beautiful rural views of our district

made for a day well spent.

The youth council is now moving

on to its latest project, Boost

2018.

This is looking to be a week of

activities and workshops for the

teenagers in our district.

The Youth Council is looking

forward to running some workshops

of its own.

We are currently working on

logos and what the timetable will

look like, but it is sure to be a fun

and exciting event taking place

towards the end of this year.

We also have plans to run

more ‘What do YOUth Think?’

events throughout the year, so

that we can find out more about

what young people need and

want in Selwyn.

We are also working on more

ways to find out what young

people think, one of which is a

Selwyn youth residents’ survey.

This is still in the works, but

the youth council is excited to

work together to champion the

voice of the youth in our district.

Our Facebook page is @

SelwynYouthCouncil which is a

great place to get in touch with

us, share your feedback, or just to

see what we’re up to.

Trevor Taylor – Cant come

you pay for it.

Barry Clarke – If they want

more people on buses they have

got a cheek putting the fares up.

Perhaps they have to find the

Move it

to music

Rolleston Community Centre’s Move it to Music class is getting Selwyn residents off the couch.

The class, run by an experienced tutor, uses music, fun equipment and a sense of humour to get

attendees moving. It’s aimed at those with arthritis or the less active who want to ‘use it not lose it’.

Along with all of the physical benefits, the sessions create a social environment where many

friendships are made. The class is followed by a coffee, biscuits and catch up.

Kathleen Johnston, a visitor to Selwyn who attends the sessions, has had two hip replacements

and a back operation and says the class is a great opportunity to exercise without too much strain

on her joints.

“This class encouraged me to get off the couch and get my body moving following my

operations,” she says.

“It has allowed me to be much more mobile, however the best part of coming along is the

friendships I have made within the class.”

Instructor Jan McKay has been running similar classes for nearly 20 years and says she enjoys

seeing the benefits that they have for attendees, both physically and socially.

“We get people coming along with a range of different health and mobility issues. The class allows

them to get their bodies moving in a safe, accepting environment,” she says.

“We focus on balance, stretching and increasing movement and mobility in joints.

“The classes are always full of fun and laughs. I encourage everyone to sing along to the music

with me.”

The Move it to Music class is held on Wednesdays from 1.15–2.15pm at the Rolleston Community

Centre, and costs $3 per session. No bookings required.

For more information phone the Centre on 347 2882 or ask at the counter.

More flow for Lincoln Skate Park

Younger skaters and scooter riders will enjoy the flow of the redesigned

Lincoln Domain Skate Park – which will allow them to

use the whole skate park easily, going from one feature to the next

without stopping.

Experienced skate park designer Dave North reviewed the

incomplete skate park for the Council to make it more suitable for

beginner to intermediate skaters and scooter riders. The park was

expected to be completed earlier this year, however Council staff

decided to tweak the skate park design as it was deemed to be

unsuitable for younger people.

“The changes that we’ve made to the skate park design will ensure

flow. A small learners bowl will lead on to an intermediate bowl which

will have lots of different carve lines as well as air and transfer lines,”

Mr North says. “The street features will include both large and small

hubba, ledges and rails. Everything will be set up to allow skaters and

scooter riders to rapidly progress and learn,” Mr North says.

Changes to the skate park’s design were also influenced by

discussions with local skaters and skate park designers.

Council Property and Commercial manager, Douglas Marshall, says

he is pleased with the new design and expects the new skate park

to be completed by the end of June, depending on weather.

“We have made the skate park a bit bigger and with Dave’s help,

we’ve ensured the park achieves its initial goal of being a quality

facility where young skaters and scooter riders can learn and have

fun,” Mr Marshall says. “We understand that locals have had to

be really patient while we get the skate park right, however we’re

confident that the new design hits the mark.”

The Lincoln Reserve Playground is now closed and will be relocated

to the other side of the pedestrian path to provide more room to

extend the skate park. The playground is expected to be reopened

in June.

The main design changes include:

· Forming the existing bowl into a mini bowl which is more

suitable for younger/learner skater and scooter riders

· Swapping the stairs for a large hubba ramp and rail

· Constructing a new 1200cm deep bowl, a ditch-style banked

area and smaller flat ledges and rail

· The existing quarter pipe will remain

SELWYN TIMES

Steven Moe

Raising the curtains on community

Rolleston’s Steven Moe

has spent more than

a year working to turn

his idea of creating a

community cinema into

a reality. Emily O’Connell

asked him why he

decided to undertake the

project and how it will

benefit the area

Can you tell me about the

project?

Basically, I’ve got four young

children and they’re all preteenage

age, and when I look at

Selwyn, there’s not that much infrastructure

for things for teenagers

and for young people to

do. So about a year ago, I started

talking with friends in the community

about this idea of setting

up a cinema, which would actually

be a social enterprise. Which

means the profits go back into

the community rather than just

being about creating dividends

for shareholders. So the desire

behind it is really to have a place

where young people can come;

they can have community; they

can watch movies, but then the

profits go back into the community

itself and back into the

young people who are actually

watching the films.

Where would the money

actually go?

The idea right now, and it’s

still being finalised, is that there

would be a charitable trust. And

the charitable trust would own

most of the shares in the operating

company which would run

the cinema. We haven’t worked

out the percentages yet that the

charitable trust would have. It

would give money to other charities,

so groups that are working

with young people in education

or outdoor activities or other

things.

Why did you choose a

cinema?

I was just looking at the landscape

of what we’ve got and what

we don’t have yet.

IDEA: Steven Moe with his children Shanna, Ayala and Isabel at Rolleston Reserve where he

plans to build a cinema with the majority of profits going back into the community.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

When will this happen?

So I had this idea, right? I

didn’t know that the district

council itself had in mind that it

was going to be building a cinema.

So originally I was thinking

it was going to take millions

of dollars to actually build the

building, and actually it would

be very difficult to do if you had

to do that. But in fact, in the new

Rolleston town square, which is

going to go in right behind New

World, they’ve actually allocated

a space for a cinema. So the

council itself is going to be funding

the building of the infrastructure,

which is fantastic. I’ve

met with the council and they’ve

said we will be working for an

operator of the cinema. So if we

could come in as a community

and give them an alternative,

which is, not only will we run

the cinema in a commercially viable

way, we will actually use the

best proportions of the profits to

go back into the building up of

our community itself.

Would some of the profits not

go to the charitable trust?

Basically the council will be

building the structure but they

won’t be putting in the projection

equipment, the seating, the

carpet, all the bits that make a

cinema, a cinema. There’s going

to be a cost involved to do that.

So at present, the only way I can

think to get that sort of funding

is to get out and appeal to private

investors to also be putting in

some proportion. It’s early days,

but the idea is that they would

own a proportion of the cinema

so they could draw on some of

the profits as well. Most of it

would go back into the charity,

but we would need to have some

kick-start funding to pay. We’re

estimating about $750,000 would

be the cost to get the equipment

and set up.

What made you do this?

In my profession, I actually

work as a lawyer, so I wrote a

book about social enterprises last

year. And in talking with people

about this new way of doing

things – the idea of combining

profit and purpose – it just made

me realise that actually I was

living in a community where

we could actually put this into

practice, rather than it just being

a theoretical thing. And because

I’ve got the background and

experience of helping others

with their ideas, why couldn’t

we do it ourselves? So I’ve kickstarted

the idea but some more

members of the community are

welcome to get involved and it

would require a huge variety

of backgrounds and resources

from accountants to social media

people to designers. It’s not just

going to be one person; it’s going

to require a community effort.

Do you visit the cinema

much?

So we go when we can. The

reality is with young children it

involves getting a babysitter in

and often the cost is as much to

pay to the babysitter as it was to

go to the movies. But yes, love

the movies, and I just think

they’re a great way to tell stories.

What is your favourite movie?

It’s a movie called My Neighbor

Totoro and it’s actually a children’s

movie which came out in

Japan, I think it was in the late

1980s. But it touches on themes

which are deeper than the children

watching would realise.

How long have you been a

lawyer for?

I qualified in 2001. So it’s quite

a while really. The other thing is

I have an accent, but I actually

went to Canterbury University

and so Canterbury’s always been

home for me. But I have lived

overseas. I lived in Toyko for four

years, I lived in London for three

years, and I lived in Sydney for

four years.

All the time working as a

lawyer, so kind of bringing skills

back that I gained in that overseas

experience. I’ve been back in

New Zealand for two and a half

years.

What made you want to go

overseas?

I think just experiencing other

cultures and seeing what else

is out there. It’s a typical OE

experience. I met my wife, Ellie,

she’s from England, and we were

going to go for two years and it

became 11 years. One of those

stories, you know? But we had

a fascinating time. We loved

Japan – the food, the culture, an

amazing place. And England,

you can travel and see all parts

of Europe very easily. So that was

wonderful.

Backyard Critters

And then as we were deciding

to come back to New Zealand,

we thought we would try Sydney,

and a year there became four

years. And we enjoyed it but we

thought where do we want to be

when we retire? Let’s get back

to the country where we want

to build our networks and build

our community and actually

feed in and help the community

to grow.

Have you always wanted to be

a lawyer?

I started studying when I was

18 . . . I didn’t have a dream as a

child to be a lawyer, but it certainly

has been something that

helps to unlock doors and opens

up opportunities to do a diverse

range of things.

Tell me about your children?

Shanna’s 10-years-old,

Ayala’s eight-years-old, Isabel’s

six-years-old and Isaac is threeyears-old.

So pretty young. Isaac

goes to a pre-school in Rolleston

and the other three are at Rolleston

School. So we’re very much

committed to Rolleston and the

Selwyn community.

What are your hobbies?

One of the key things that

I love doing is interviewing

people. So I have a podcast

where I publish stories of inspiring

people that I’ve met and

they’re deeper than just a 5min

conversation, they go for 45min

to an hour. So that podcast is

called Seeds. As well as that I love

family history – so researching

family history and understanding

where I’m from and how we

fit together.

What’s the most interesting

thing you’ve learnt from looking

up your family history?

I think each of us have limited

time with our lives, and the

thing that I’ve found encouraging

looking at my ancestors is to

think about how I’m using my

time, how I’m using my life, and

what role I’m playing.

Where did you grow up?

I actually grew up in Christchurch.

My parents immigrated

from North America and we

TOP PICK: Steven Moe’s favourite movie is My Neighbor Totoro,

a Japanese children’s film which touches on some deep themes.

moved here in 1983. So we first

moved down to Oamaru and

then to Christchurch in 1989.

How were you when you

moved to New Zealand?

I was seven.

Can you tell me about the

book Social Enterprises in New

Zealand, which you wrote?

My role when I was overseas is

I acted for banks and large corporates

who had huge amounts

of money. And when I would

call the client – I would say

congratulations the deal’s done,

then basically, what’s the colour

of your next Lamborghini? Now

I deal with clients and their

questions and I call them and say

we’ve set up a charitable trust or

we’ve got your business off the

ground, you can now go out and

hope to benefit the community

through your social enterprise.

So there’s a real mindset shift

there. I realised that what was

lacking for people was information.

So my intention with

the book was to pull together

resources that tell you how to set

up a social enterprise, explain

what they are, explain the options

of companies v trusts and

other different models.

Do you plan on writing another

book?

I think I will. I will definitely

do a second edition of this one.

AN INSECT species which has

been obvious in my backyard

over the last summer is the

green vegetable bug, Nezara

viridula.

Sometimes called stink or

shield bug, this exotic pest

first arrived in New Plymouth

in 1944 and has spread to the

warmer parts of New Zealand.

Adults are 12-14mm in length,

usually green, but can be yellow/

orange or brown in the nymphal

stages.

They have a line of three white

spots about a third of the distance

down their body.

Like other true bugs, they have

a piercing and sucking mouthpart

under its head which it

uses to extract plant juices from

many hosts including beans,

tomatoes, corn, silverbeet,

pumpkin, cauliflower, cabbage,

marrow, turnips, rhubarb, kale

and grapes, to name a few.

Adult females lay rafts of

40-60 eggs under leaves under

leaves. Cylindrical eggs 1.3mm

long hatch after 10-20 days and

nymphs emerge.

Colours differ from adults,

ranging from black to orange,

with patches of cream, yellow,

green and red.

The green vegetable bug has

two parasitoid wasp natural enemies

in New Zealand; one that

controls eggs, while the other

wasp attacks nymphs.

SELWYN TIMES

News

The legacy of Maori settlers remains

THE SELWYN District has seen

a surge of migration into the

district in recent times, but the

very first migrants came to the

area over 700 years ago.

The history of our local

tangata-whenua (people of the

land) started as a combination of

oral myths and legends passed

from generation to generation

and it was not until European

colonisation that their history

was written.

The first permanent Maori

settlement in the area was at

Taumutu, where Te Waihora/

Lake Ellesmere is opened out to

the sea at the southern end of

Kaitorete Spit.

Over the centuries there were

a series of tribal migrations from

the North Island to the South,

with the first recorded seasonal

settlement being established

by the Waitaha tribe in the late

1400s.

However, Waitaha tradition

and archaeological evidence

suggests that there was similar

transient settlement much earlier

than this.

Ngati Mamoe were the next

tribe to frequent the area in

the late 1500s, but it was Te

Rakitamau of the Ngai Tahu iwi

who built the first permanent pa,

Te-pa-o-ikamutu, at Taumutu in

the early 1700s.

Historian and district council staff member Wayne

Stack continues his monthly look at Selwyn’s past.

Anyone with suggestions for future features can

phone Wayne on 021 119 9107. This month’s feature

covers the early history of Taumutu and Maori.

SIGNIFICANT: The Hon Hori Kerei Taiaroa with his wife and

grandchildren at his home, Awhitu House, in the late 1890s. ​

The lake provided a bountiful

year-round food supply, such as

eels and flounder, with the close

proximity to the sea making it

easier for travelling up and down

the coastline.

Being so close to the sea also

had some drawbacks.

Our Great

history

WITH WAYNE STACK

Sea erosion has totally destroyed

the site of the original

village and the location was

exposed to coastal attacks from

other tribes.

Sometime later, Ngai Tahu

chief, Te Ruahikihiki, moved

from Akaroa Harbour and built

a new pa, Orariki, on higher

ground behind the beach at

Taumutu.

This pa was easier to defend

as it was surrounded by swamps

and enclosed with a wooden

palisade.

The pa was located at the current

site of Hone Wetere Church

and remnants of the ramparts

can still be seen in the church

yard.

A third fortified pa was later

built by Ruahikihiki’s son, Moki

II, close to the present site of the

Ngati Moki Marae.

The Taumutu hapu, Ngai Te

Ruahikihiki, had close ties with

other Ngai Tahu sub-tribes near

Kaiapoi and Banks Peninsula, as

well as at Otakou on the Otago

Peninsula.

In the 1820s they became

involved in the Kai Huanga

(Eat Relation) feud when the

brother-in-law of their chief was

killed as retribution following

a traditional insult against the

tribe’s paramount chief.

As a result, the Taumutu hapu

suffered from ‘Utu’ (revenge) and

many people were killed.

At this time, Ngai Tahu

warriors from Otakou, under

Matenga Taiaroa, travelled north

to protect their Taumutu kin and

eventually persuaded them to

return to Otakou with them for

fear of continuing retribution.

A number of years later Chief

Tamaiharanui, who had been

the main aggressor towards the

Taumutu hapu, enticed them

back to the area by guaranteeing

their safety.

However, this was only a ruse

and he proved treacherous by

ambushing the returning Taumutu

people on Kaitorete Spit

when they were nearing their pa.

strong in the Selwyn district

Only a few escaped with their

lives.

Tamaiharanui was later defeated

by Te Rauparaha when he

raided south in the late 1820s,

which saved the people of Taumutu

from further retribution.

When Bishop Selwyn visited

Taumutu in 1844 it was only a

shadow of its former prosperity.

He described the pa as being a

collection of a ‘few huts enclosed

by a fence’ with only around 40

inhabitants.

The earlier massacre would

have certainly played a part in its

decline, but an accurate account

of the population is hard to determine

given the nomadic life of

its people who regularly travelled

to the West Coast for pounamu

(greenstone) and to the south for

muttonbirds.

Christianity became an important

facet of life at Taumutu.

During Bishop Selwyn’s visit he

was surprised to discover that

several local Maori could read

and recite the Lord’s Prayer.

Although he was the first European

clergyman to visit the area,

Christianity was already spreading

through Maori converts.

Taumutu became a Methodist

outpost from 1845 after the visit

from a Methodist missionary,

Charles Creed.

HISTORIC: The Hone Wetere (John Wesley) Church at Taumutu. Built in 1885 on the site of Te Ruahikihiki’s pa. Right – The Ngati

Moki Marae, established on the site of the pa built by Moki II.

Services were held in Maori

and English, with the district

later being served by Reverend

Te Kote Te Ratou from 1865 until

1891.

Built in 1885, the historic Hone

Wetere (John Wesley) Church,

remains the spiritual heart of the

Ngati Moki Marae and its people.

The site it was built on has

great spiritual and historical

significance for Ngai Tahu in

that it is the original site of Te

Ruahikihiki’s pa and its location

was seen as providing a special

relationship with the hills of

Banks Peninsula, the mountains

of Southern Alps and the water of

Te Waihora.

The most notable member

of the Taumutu community

in the late colonial period was

Ngai Tahu paramount chief, the

Honourable Hori Kerei Taiaroa

of Otakou.

Son of Te Matenga Taiaroa, he

was prominent in the judicial and

political campaigns to uphold

Ngai Tahu land claims.

In 1871 he was elected to the

House of Representatives as the

member for Southern Maori

and was successful in gaining

financial compensation for his

people, as well as the return of

some land.

In 1878, Taiaroa and his family

moved from Otakou to Te Awhitu,

a stately two-storied wooden

mansion he had built at Taumutu

on his ancestral land.

This later became the home of

successive Ngai Tahu paramount

chiefs, but tragically burnt to the

ground in 2003 with the loss of

much historical taonga.

When Parliament was not in

session, Taiaroa lived the life of a

country gentleman here and was

hugely respected by both Maori

and European alike.

He was later appointed to the

Legislative Council (the now defunct

upper house of Parliament),

a position he held until his death

in 1905.

He was remembered for his

determination in pushing Ngai

Tahu land claims, which to him

were a matter of family mana, as

well as justice for his iwi.

However, he also played an

important role in wider Maori

politics.

And it was Taiaroa who was

the major financial patron for

the building of the historic Hone

Wetere Church.

Taiaroa’s legacy remains in

the form of his descendants;

some who still live in the district

and who provide leadership

within the Te Taumutu Runanga

in maintaining shared guardianship

of Te Waihora/ Lake

Ellesmere.

national schools call-up

LINCOLN HIGH School student

Zoe McMeeken is making the

right impression in her Halswell

Zoe has been named in the

“I really enjoy it because they’re

She first started playing at age

Lincoln Combined

Proud supporters of

Rugby & Netball in Selwyn

rue poor first half in loss to Christ’s

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN COMBINED were

left to rue a poor first half in their

29-5 defeat to Christ’s College at

North Hagley Park on Saturday.

Lincoln trailed 22-0 at halftime

with coach Mike Wilson saying

they did not match the intensity

of the competition front-runners

in the first 35min.

“We weren’t physical enough,

didn’t put the shoulders into

our tackles to drive them back

and we struggled to get field

position,” Wilson said.

“Any ball we did get, we threw

away. We just seemed rather

rattled.”

Wilson said Christ’s played to

the wet conditions very well.

“It wasn’t raining but there was

a lot of surface water. Christ’s

kept their attack in tight and

really made us work defensively.

“They are a very well-drilled

team, everyone knows their role.”

Wilson said his players got

a stern team-talk at the break

and he was thrilled with the

response.

“[In] the second half, we really

struck to our task, hit the rucks

hard and made our presence felt

in contact,” he said.

“To keep the score at 7-5

showed that if we’d played like

Lincoln’s Wil Gualter looks to offload the ball.

that for the whole game, then

you never know what might have

happened.”

Wilson praised the impact

of reserve loose-forward Cam

Jordan who put his body on the

line countless times.

“He’s a guy who was a prop last

year and came to us at the start

of the season and said that he

wanted to be a loose-forward,”

Wilson said.

“On Saturday, he showed what

he can do in that position with

the work he did at the breakdown

and the tackles he made.”

Wilson also praised reserve

winger Ben Sisson for this workrate

in conditions not conducive

to free-flowing back play,

Lincoln will host Mid-

Canterbury Combined on

Saturday and will be eager to

return to winning ways.

Harry Zarifeh breaks through a tackle to score in the corner,

while both sides challenge for the ball at lineout time.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

Back to back national champion

To call a 12 year old one of the greats may

seem a little premature but when it comes

to two-time New Zealand champion kart

racer Jacob Douglas, the label may just fit.

For one so young, he already has an

impressive line-up of wins, titles, and

experiences.

“Last year,” says Jacob’s father Craig, “Jake

raced for (sponsor) Aluminos at Supernats

21 in Las Vegas, Nevada, which is probably

the biggest kart meeting on the planet.”

Jacob has also represented New Zealand

in Italy, raced in Thailand and California,

and has several New Zealand and local

titles. He’s the only driver to win back to

back NZ championships in his class.

Jacob lives in Lincoln with his mum and

dad, Rowena and Craig, and twin sister

Hayley. It is fair to say they are a family of

high achievers.

“I’ve taught my children that it is okay to

want to be the best,” Craig says. While Jacob

takes to the track, Hayley is making her own

statement on the ice rink. Which makes for

a gruelling schedule, but for a family that

is passionate about and supportive of each

other’s efforts and achievements, it’s all in a

day’s work.

Jacob attends Medbury School in

Christchurch. They are encouraging of his

endeavours but also demand he maintains

his school work and grades, which he does

and has done since he started kart racing at

the age of 8.

The international and national

racing schedule demands dedication,

commitment, and a mental strength

beyond most 12 year olds and lest you fall

into the trap of thinking it is dad’s dream

and not Jacob’s, spend five minutes with

Jacob and the thought is easily dispelled.

Jacob’s knowledge of racing is astounding,

and his passion and dream for the future is

unquestioned.

When asked where he wants to be in ten

years, his answer is unequivocal, “in F1

(Formula One), or on the road to it.”

If not F1?

“It’d be cool to do open wheels – but

V8s, then.” With people like Craig Baird,

Scott McLaughlan, Kenny Smith and Greg

Murphy watching Jacob’s rise, he has a solid

future lined up.

Jacob is quick, however, to acknowledge

that he can’t do it alone. He is supported by

a dedicated team of coaches and mentors,

and sponsors like Aluminos in the United

States.

Local sponsors and Jacob’s coaches,

Matthew and Tiffany Hamilton, who

between them have numerous national

and world racing titles and who own WKS

KartStore in Christchurch, recognise

Jacob’s potential and believe in him. They

are some of his strongest supporters.

“To do what he’s done in Thailand, when

he won there and to do so well in Italy and

America – he’s really very good,” Matthew

says.

“There are a few kids in New Zealand who

have got what it takes but Jacob is definitely

the top of that age group and he’s proven

that two years in a row. Anyone who wins

nationals back to back has certainly got

talent.”

Jacob Douglas is another name to watch

in New Zealand motorsport. He has F1

square in his sights but he is also aware

of the challenging road ahead. Even

with the right support in place, adequate

sponsorship, and in a highly competitive

structure, it comes down to just a couple

of things, Jacob’s attitude and his natural

talent and ability.

When asked why he’s so good, his

response sings. “The practise and the effort

of the people around me and how much I

want it, if I had the same people and their

effort around me but I didn’t put in the

effort, I wouldn’t be any good.”

Winning words from a 12 year old.

And what’s it like being number one in

New Zealand? Jacob thinks for a moment,

and with a modest smile, says, “it’s cool”.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

One-stop engine

repairs and service

Rolleston Diesel & Petrol is a local one-stop shop for everything related

to servicing and repairing cars, trucks, boats, machinery and more. In

fact, they can repair almost anything with an engine whether it’s a diesel

or petrol engine.

Owner Simon Wilson emphasises the

importance of a well maintained vehicle.

All vehicles need regular maintenance,

whether old or new. As drivers, it is

very easy to think that if the car starts

and goes it must be okay. Regular

maintenance however, can identify

the beginnings of problems that might

become more expensive and a whole lot

of hassle, if left unchecked.

At Rolleston Diesel & Petrol they

use the latest diagnostic equipment.

Together with the combined expertise

and experience Allan and Hayden bring

to the table, you can be assured that every

job, whether a service or repair, is carried

out to exacting standards. They fit only

good quality parts and components

specifically manufactured for the vehicle

brand, and use only the best oil and

fluids. A high standard is not just a goal,

it is a promise.

WOF certificates can be issued quickly

and is an ideal time to have your vehicle

serviced too.

Rolleston Diesel & Petrol is experienced

in repairing all vehicles, specialising in

brakes and suspensions. At this time of

year these are especially important to

have operating optimally.

In the event of a breakdown, Rolleston

Diesel & Petrol offers a tow truck service

and where appropriate, an offsite repair

service. They also have courtesy cars

to minimise the down time having a

vehicle repaired can create – another

consideration for busy lives.

At the Jones Road workshop, there is

a wide range of products and it is the

official stockist of brands such as Penrite

Oil, Maxis Tyres, Ryco Oil Filters, and

Supercharge Batteries.

decided to make a change and take on a Jim’s Dog

Wash franchise giving her the freedom to be her own

boss and to work with her other love – dogs. Jill takes

a patient and calm approach with the dogs and does

her best to make it a pleasant experience. Jill always

gets a buzz seeing the finished look, after the groom.

“I have been really well supported in Selwyn as it is

a community that gets behind local businesses and I

have met so many lovely people and their dogs,” says

Jill.

Book one of the services that Jims Dog Wash offer

such as coat tidy up, coat strip out, full groom service,

including nails, ears and pads or enquire about the

flea and tick treatments.

Pick up the VIP (Very Important Pooch) card that

entitles your dog’s sixth groom at 50 percent off.

Keep veges growing to protect beds

ALTHOUGH THE weather has

cooled, there are still a few tasks

to be done in the garden at this

time of year.

Here are some tips to get you

started.

•Vege gardens – The winter

vege garden should be well

established by now and most of

your seedlings should already be

planted. Continue to sow broad

beans and transplant seedlings

of cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli

and silverbeet for a continuous

supply over winter. Sow green

manure crops such as lupin and

mustard in the parts of the vege

garden that will be empty during

the winter months. This will add

nutrients into the soil and protect

beds over winter.

•Strawberries – It’s the

traditional time of the year for

final preparation and planting

of strawberry plants. Areas to

be planted should be mounded

80-100cm above existing ground

level. Incorporate large amounts

of compost into the strawberry

bed. New plants or offsets from

last year’s plants should be

planted 15-20cm apart.

•Fruit trees – Pip and stone

fruit will have shed their leaves

and pruning can now begin. We

do this as early possible with

pip and stone fruit to avoid the

CHORES: Plant broad beans now for a continuous supply. It’s also time to trim your hedges. There will be little growth over the

winter so they should stay tidy until spring.

infection of silver leaf. Remove

all weak and inward growing

branches and reduce the height

of trees to allow for easy picking

and maintenance. After pruning,

spray with a copper compound to

help prevent any re-infection of

fungal diseases.

•Hedges – It’s an ideal time for

a final tidy up and hedge trims.

But remember, there will be no

new growth until spring, so final

trims should not be too vigorous

so the plants don’t stay bare

looking.

•Roses – It is possibly a little

too early for pruning, and it does

depend largely on the weather.

In the meantime, apply a copper

spray to prevent infection

of fungal diseases in spring.

Remove all dead leaves around

the base of the rose bushes and

apply compost as both a soil

conditioner and mulch.

•Lawns – Grass growth has

now ceased due to the cooler

weather. It is an excellent time

to level lawns with a roller as the

moist soil makes levelling quite

easily.

•Paths and walkways – Paths

around the house and through

the garden can become very

slippery during the winter

months; water blasting can

quickly remedy this problem. In

winter months, we mainly utilise

paths especially when there are

boggy parts in the garden or

lawn. For this reason, you may

wish to consider additional paths

to provide easier access.

•Container gardens – Brighten

up decks and entrances with

containers full of blooming

winter annuals such as cinerarias,

pansies, primulas, snapdragons

and violas.

Finally, check local garden

centres for newly arrived winter

stock of trees and shrubs as

June is a very safe time for

planting.

Adult Book Clubs

Last Friday of the month,

10.30-noon

Book discussion groups are a

fun and popular way to expand

your reading subjects, meet people

in your area and share your

thoughts and ideas about reading.

The sessions are organised to

be a discussion over a cup of tea

and a bikkie, rather than strict

literary criticism. The groups

read across a variety of genres

and this helps extend the reading

experience to include things not

necessarily chosen before.

A love of the natural environment

and influence of spontaneity

threads our three artists

together in this May exhibition.

While this title suggests two

paint media, it has yet another

meaning for this show, since

it includes two very different

kinds of art — painting and pottery.

Featuring works by Allan

Hooper, Debbie Lambert and

Bernadette Parsons, it’s one not

What to watch for when

the mode of sale changes

Buying a property is rarely straightforward,

which is no surprise given that it’s the

biggest financial commitment most people

ever make. When you combine big sums of

money and a considerable level of emotional

investment, even the simplest transaction

can be stressful. We hear a lot about the need

for buyers to do their homework, but there

are plenty of reasons for sellers to be careful

too.

If you’re selling a property with a real estate

agent, you must sign an agency agreement

that sets out all the terms and conditions

of your contract with them, including how

much commission they will earn from the

sale and how the property will be marketed.

That’s why it’s so important to get legal advice

before you sign an agency agreement. If it’s a

standard agreement, you usually retain the

right to sell the property privately but it’s a

good idea to check this. If you have signed

an agreement with an agency but decide for

whatever reason to opt for a DIY private

sale, you should double and triple-check

whether the agency agreement requires you

to pay commission to the real estate agent or

agency.

Most agencies use the Real Estate Authority

(REA) standard clauses in agency

agreements, which set out certain terms

and conditions for the contract and the

payment of commission. According to the

standard clauses, commission is payable if

the property is sold within the active term

of the agreement (normally 90 days) or if it

is sold privately within six months after the

end of the term to a buyer that the agent had

earlier introduced to the property. In other

words, if the buyer visits an open home run

by the real estate agent, and then enters into a

private sale with the seller within six months

after the end of the agreement, the seller is

still obliged to pay commission to the agent.

This can vary depending on whether it is

a sole or general agreement – talk to your

lawyer before you sign up.

Both sole agency agreements and general

agency agreements provide for commission

payments after the agreed period ends. If a

seller enters into a sale within six months of

the agency agreement ending with a buyer

who was introduced by the real estate agent

(or the agent facilitated the sale), then the

seller must pay the agent commission just as

they would have done when the agreement

was still current. So, if the agent brings a

potential buyer to a property in March, the

agency agreement expires in April, and the

seller and purchaser enter into a private

sale agreement in May, the seller will have

to pay the agent commission. The sale must

become unconditional (which is when all

the conditions of the sale and purchase

agreement have been met), but it doesn’t

matter whether it goes unconditional during

or after the agency period, or during or after

the six months following expiry, so long as

the sale and purchase agreement is entered

into within those timeframes. So, before you

sign an agency agreement, ask the agency

if it uses standard REA clauses. If it doesn’t

you may be exposed to more complicated

commission risks and you should seek legal

advice.

Generally, any issues arising from the agency

agreement/arrangements between the seller

and the real estate agent won’t have a direct

effect on the separate sale and purchase

agreement between the seller and the buyer.

However, the wrangling involved may create

headaches or delays that you as a buyer

wouldn’t want to be troubled with.

If you do decide that you’re really keen on a

property in this situation, seek legal advice

before getting involved (and especially

before signing anything). Remember too

that the REA can help you with questions

and complaints about sales involving

licensed real estate agents, but it’s unable to

step in if you have a problem with a private

and unlicensed seller.

selling property, check out settled.govt.nz.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

From bohemian chic

to statement ceilings

Keeping up with home trends is a passion for

some, and arduous for others. But who hasn’t

had a quick look at some Pinterest boards to

find some ideas to spruce up the spare room

or the entrance way?

Apparently, there are more than ten

billion ideas for cool things to do at

home, just on this site. Whether joining

wooden crates to make a book case, using

an old rake to hang wine glasses, there is

something for every home-owner, from

dilettante to serious DIY enthusiast, to add

to the to-do list.

From the literally billions of ideas,

it is often possible to recognise trends

emerging, trends perhaps in simple things

such as colours or patterns, or more

complex trends in landscaping ideas or

themes for bedrooms.

Here are a few trends taking over

homes in 2018, according to these often

anonymous authorities who seem to

have their fingers on the pulse of what is

popular with creative home owners.

Softer colours. While there is still a place

for strong, bold colours, softer hues such

as Resene’s ‘Dusted Blue’ or ‘Soothe’ are

creating calm spaces. Last year, Pantone

announced ‘Ultra Violet’ the colour of the

year for 2018. Softer variations of purple,

such as lavender and jacaranda are being

seen in New Zealand homes.

Upcycling has been popular for a while

but 2018 might be the year it really takes

off. It’s very green, repurposing what you

already have, which is also easy on the

finances and is an opportunity to get a

little creative.

According to freshome.com, ‘haute

bohemian’ design is the newest new thing

and is, “a modern take on what it means to

be bohemian”. A simple way to describe it

is that the functional parts of your design

should remain neutral. The decorative

elements should bring a sense of style.

Hence, bed and side tables have neutral

tones; the throw pillows, blankets and

accessories adopt a more “interesting” and

personalised aspect.

Vogue says ‘statement ceilings’ are,

2018’s most romantic and dramatic décor

trend”. Apparently, ceilings have been

ignored for 70 years! But no more. Bold

paints, tailored wallpapers, patterns, and

even murals are adorning the fifth wall.

Black is back. Whether tapware, sinks, or

entire bathrooms and kitchens, jet black,

with splashes of colour or highlighted

by earthy tones, is popular. Feature walls

or the central aspect of a dark, moody

bedroom theme, black is quietly chic

again.

Big art. Murals, statement pieces, even

gaudy sculptures, the bigger the better.

Display them properly, with good lighting.

Put them in the entranceway where

everyone coming and going will see them.

There are billions more ideas. You can

follow the trends, or set them. The beauty

is that personalising your home can be as

simple as taking one idea and making it

work for you in a different way. Browse

the popular websites, such as Pinterest,

Resene, and even Facebook, but be careful

as it can be very time consuming and

remember, what is trendy today may be

passe tomorrow.

Buying a property with trees

13

enjoyment of their land, which means

that you can’t let your trees become a

problem at their place (and vice versa).

If your neighbours have trees that are

giving you grief, think carefully before

swinging an axe or chainsaw. Legally, you

are entitled to trim any branches or roots

from a tree (or large shrub, or plant) that

encroach on your property unless they

are protected, in which case you may

need resource consent first. However, for

the sake of being a decent human being,

it’s a good idea to talk to the tree’s owners

first. Don’t be tempted to take matters

into your own hands and poison the tree,

or trespass onto a neighbour’s property

to chop parts of it off. One way to resolve

the situation is to seek advice from a

professional arborist. Getting an expert

to prune the tree in a way that doesn’t

destroy it completely will be far cheaper

than engaging a lawyer.

In the worst-case scenario, if you can’t sort

out tree issues with a chat over the fence

or the aid of an arborist, it may be time to

seek help from the Disputes Tribunal or

the District Court. If the trees are causing

a nuisance, such as blocking views and/

or light, and you’re unable to come to an

agreement with the neighbour, you can

apply to the District Court for an order to

get the neighbour to trim or remove the

tree.

For independent advice on buying or

selling property, check out settled.govt.

nz.

Whoever said ‘the best time to plant a tree

was 20 years ago’ obviously never dealt

with overhanging branches, wayward

roots or grumpy neighbours. As anyone

who lives in a leafy area will tell you, trees

can cause no end of bother. Trees can

block views, damage fences and interfere

with power lines. Roots can disrupt pipes,

branches can reduce sunlight availability,

leaves can block gutters and windfall fruit

can attract rodents. It’s a wonder people

ever plant them!

These problems are often caused by wellmeaning

property owners who plant

trees without thinking about how big

they will grow. By the time a tree is wellestablished,

it may be already wreaking

havoc both overhead and underground.

Overhanging branches may present

obvious hassles, but tree roots are usually

out of sight, out of mind until they start

to snaking their way into retaining walls,

foundations or drains (at which point they

become difficult to ignore and expensive

to re-route).

If you own a property, you are allowed

to do whatever you like to your trees,

within the bounds of the law that says

you have the right to the ordinary use and

enjoyment of your land. This is subject

to any protection that may apply to your

trees. If they’re protected (for example,

because they are historic, considered

to be significant or needed to prevent

erosion), you may need to get resource

consent before doing anything to them.

Remember that you can’t unreasonably

interfere with your neighbours’ use and
