CATTLE DISEASE mycoplasma

bovis will affect a major A and P

show this season.

The Ellesmere A and P Show in

Leeston in October has dropped

cattle from its programme and

other shows may follow suit.

The Canterbury A and P

Association, which runs one of the

region’s largest agricultural shows,

will be discussing the issue this

week.

In March, the Government signed

off culling thousands of cows in a

bid to eradicate the disease.

It comes as a public meeting was

scheduled to be held in Darfield

yesterday as part of a nationwide

tour. Dairy New Zealand and the

Ministry for Primary Industries

were to discuss the disease.

Ellesmere A & P Show president

Trevor Hobson said the disease is

present in Selwyn and it cannot risk

spreading it any further.

He said its cattle sub-committee

met to discuss the issue.

from the editor’s desk

LOTS OF sport in the paper today from an

inside look at why the Lincoln Combined

high school side is doing so well in the UC

Championship, to Waihora’s tough as teak

win in the division one final, the naming

of the Ellesmere colts side, the front-runners in senior netball

and more.

That was one long paragraph in journalistic terms but it sums

up one huge growth area in the district – sport.

The sports grounds and courts are full to the brim and a time

will come when there will need to be a council of war among all

codes to try and work out how to cope with the growth.

Because that growth will also bring something else – great

results on the field.

$3300 grant to help

• By Emily O’Connell

PLANS ARE being made to

restore soldiers’ photos for the

new Lakeside Community

Memorial Hall.

On Wednesday, the Springs

and Ellesmere discretionary

funds committee granted the

hall’s committee more than

$3300 for the project.

Hall committee chairman

Dennis Carter said it is wanting

to display photos of the 16 Lakeside

soldiers from World War 1

and 2, who didn’t return home,

in its new hall.

“We thought a nice thing would

be to restore the photographs that

are there and to see if we can find

more of them,” he said.

Mr Carter said the group had

gone to “reasonable lengths”

to try and find photos of the

remaining five soldiers.

He said the restoration will

involve redoing the photos in

their original oak frames.

“All of them would be redone

in a manner that would see

them last another 100 years,” Mr

Carter said.

The original hall was demolished

after being damaged

beyond repair in the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

The district council is contributing

$417,697 towards the

estimated $1,670,788 cost of the

new facility.

Mr Carter said it’s likely the

new hall will be opened in November.

INTERNATIONAL

It will be located on Harts Rd

and will include a multipurpose

hall, a courtyard, kitchen and

bar, storage, bathrooms and a

service room.

Mr Carter said some

people are so excited about

the opening they have “already

bought their dresses” for the

occasion.

Feathers still

ruffled over

Squawk St

• By Emily O’Connell

ONE LAST bird call sounded

as the district council renamed

Rolleston’s Squawk St.

Squawk St was among Feather

Place, Claw Place and Pallid

Green as some of the quirky bird

names to feature at the new Falcon’s

Landing subdivision, located

off Lincoln-Rolleston Rd.

At its meeting on Wednesday,

the district council approved

renaming it to Territory St, which

was one of the alternate names

submitted previously.

The developer, Gillman Wheelans,

suggested the change “after

the discussion that was generated

in local papers.”

Mayor Sam Broughton admitted

he may have been wrong

about the naming of the street.

“I will note that those who were

looking forward to moving into

Squawk St will now have to find

an alternative location,” he said.

Mr Broughton said he was

pleased to see the developer

agreed with district councillors

Jeff Bland and Nicole Reid who

had voted against the name previously.

Bus success to go back to ECan

• By Emily O’Connell

THE $7500 Selwyn Link project

has been deemed a success.

On Wednesday, the Selwyn

Youth Council presented a

report on the project, which

included its findings, to the

district council.

The free nine-stop bus service

ran over two days in April and

transported a total of 557 people.

Buses travelled between

Southbridge and Darfield and

Darfield to Southbridge, via

Rolleston.

Youth council research

identified Southbridge, Leeston,

Doyleston, Darfield, Kirwee, and

West Melton as key stops on the

trial route, with connections in

Rolleston.

The route was designed after

consultation with students from

Ellesmere College and Darfield

High School.

Youth council member Taylin

Smith said it was “pleasantly

surprised with the turnout.”

“The amazing thing was that

Quarry, properties space bid

• By Emily O’Connell and Anan

Zaki

ANTI-TEMPLETON quarry

campaigner Simon Moore has

thrown his support behind

having a set distance between

quarries and properties.

The Selwyn District Plan

Committee has decided to

include setbacks in the district

plan but it will not specify how

far away a quarry must be from

a property.

“That’s exactly what we want.

The only problem is the district

plan can take long to happen.

“At the moment, it’s a joke,

if we got 500m it would be a

start,” he said.

Mr Moore (right) said he

preferred a 1km setback but

“anything was better than nothing”.

“I just don’t think for example,

the people moving to

Rolleston, West Melton and

Lincoln realise that under the

current rules a quarry could be

plonked next to one of the new

subdivisions.”

However, district councillor

Craig Watson believes a setback

distances should have been

included.

Cr Watson said there should

be a 500m setback from “points

of interest” such as houses, and

a 250m setback from properties.

“For me, this is an opportunity

for us to be stronger as a

council and say ‘look we understand

the significance of quarrying

and it’s important but also

understand it’s really hard if

you’re close so here’s one way to

make this work and that’s having

setbacks,’ “ he said.

Cr Watson said his numbers

came from decisions made by

other councils.

Meanwhile, Selwyn MP Amy

Adams has found a way for

Templeton residents opposed

to the proposed Fulton Hogan

quarry to get potential information

at no cost.

Residents opposing the

quarry were told by Environment

Canterbury in March that

it would cost $2356 to process

their Official Information Request.

However, Ms Adams said

on Wednesday that she would

use her powers as an MP to help

residents avoid fees.

“Generally MP’s are not

charged, so I have offered

residents who are told they will

face a substantial charge ... to

have me seek the information

on their behalf to see if we can

avoid extra cost in this way,” she

said.

Ms Adams said fees were

a barrier for people seeking

official information.

Templeton Residents

Association chairman Garry

Kilday welcomed Ms Adams

offer.

He met with ECan officials

last Monday about OIA fees and

hoped ECan would not charge

for future requests, following

the meeting.

“Both Selwyn District

Council and Christchurch City

have said the information we

request is free, so it looks like is

coming to the party as well.

“They said we have to shorten

our time periods down for OIA

requests. If we do it one year at

a time, they said we will get the

information,” Mr Kilday said.

But if there was a fee involved,

residents would take up Ms

Adams offer, he said.

NEW

PRODUCT

PROPOSED: An artist’s impression of the new community pavilion at Weedons

Reserve, which has come under criticism again by the Weedons Residents’

Association.

Stoush over who has

paid for pavilion

at Weedons Reserve

• By Emily O’Connell

THE DEBATE over how

the new community

pavilion at Weedons

Reserve is funded has

ignited again.

Weedons Residents’ Association

chairman John

McKim gave a deputation

at the district council

meeting last week.

He talked about a number

of issues, including the

association’s concerns with

the new pavilion’s funding.

Mr McKim said the

association received

figures which showed the

Weedons Cricket Club,

which it believed is the

“major benefactor of this

building,” is contributing

$5000 towards the new

pavilion.

“We understand as a

community that we have to

fund these things but that

amount is totally unacceptable,”

he said.

However, district council

major project property

manager John Reid said

the cricket club has

contributed more than

$30,000.

“This includes $6000 in

cash, plus a shared contribution

from fundraising

activity, with the tennis

club and the reserve committee,

which provided

another $6000,” he said.

Mr Reid said in addition,

the cricket club gave an

“in-kind contribution” of

approximately $23,000.

The pavilion, which has a

budget of about $800,000,

is expected to be completed

in October.

Mr 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 cricket club

as part of the community

pavilion redevelopment.

Information from the

district council’s corporate

services manager Greg Bell

said moving and upgrading

the tennis courts cost

more than $162,601, and 65

per cent of this is estimated

to have come from ratepayers.

Mr McKim also said, so

He said when the announcement

was made to

eradicate the disease, the

sub-committee made the

decision to drop cattle from

its programme.

The committee has not

yet received a lot of feedback

from the public.

“It was a common sense

decision. There will be no

backlash from it. It is disappointing

to see it happen

but it was the sensible decision

to make,” Mr Hobson

said.

He was uncertain as to

how long it would be until

the show would accept cattle

entries again.

“The risk is too great to

be warranted at the moment

. . . it is just not safe to

have cattle mixed together

in case they have got this,”

Mr Hobson said.

As of last week, the

current number of active

infected properties with

mycoplasma bovis in

Canterbury was 14, a MPI

report said.

president Tim Black said

it has spoken to exhibitors

and they are happy with

the status quo.

zero” towards the move.

“It seems to us that we

are funding a number of

sports bodies and basically

the question we ask

is how many people in the

Weedons rateable zone

actually belong to these

clubs?” he said.

However, tennis club

secretary Julie Cockburn

said that’s not true, and the

club’s contribution is “in

the thousands.”

“It’s just a wee bit concerning

that he’s making

statements like that when

New grants fund

for community

• By Emily O’Connell

A NEW grants fund has been set

up to assist community-focussed

initiatives in the district.

The fund is part of the district

council’s Long Term

Plan and was established

at last week’s district

council meeting.

The district council’s

Community Grants

Fund is a combination

of new and existing

funds which are available

for youth development,

community

development, environment,

arts, culture and

local history initiatives.

It doesn’t include the

$5500 Selwyn Youth

Council Project Fund,

as recommended.

District councillor

Craig Watson suggested

it be removed and left

with the youth council.

However, district

councillor Pat McEvedy

voted against establishing

the fund due to its

removal.

“If we pull these guys out, do

we pull those guys out and then

what’s the point of what we’re doing?”

he said.

Hororata Community Trust

executive officer Cindy Driscoll

said the new fund might help

with consistency between funding

decisions.

“What it could do is

provide the council more

opportunities to support

more organisations,” she

said.

Mrs Driscoll said “there

will be a bit of trial and

error, and it will depend

on their processes, but

I think it could be a

Craig Watson positive thing.”

Two Rivers

Community Trust

community services

stream manager Bev

Elder says she’s “not

happy about it” because it

tends to mean it gets put

into boxes.

“What that prevents

is the little group in the

community that’s got a

Pat McEvedy really good idea but they

don’t have a history and it

doesn’t neccessarily fit in any box

and they haven’t got anywhere to

go,” she said.

Flags fly high in Lincoln

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FLAGS symbolising Lincoln’s

educational, environmental

and farming heritage have

been unfurled to beautify the

township’s main street.

Gerald St received five new

flags last week, created by

Lincoln-based graphic designer

Craig Crawford, of Evolution

Creative.

They were installed by the

Lincoln Community Committee

as a way of ensuring there

are flags on the street year

round.

The project cost about $5000

and was covered by the committee’s

discretionary funds.

Mr Crawford said while

Christmas flags and Lincoln

University flags are unrolled to

celebrate graduation throughout

the year, between times there is

nothing.

The suggestion to get the

Lincoln township on a FlagTrax

system was made by district

councillor Grant Miller about

18 months ago.

FlagTrax was invented to

allow people to raise or lower

street flags from ground level.

Cr Miller said before then

it was required to get cherry

pickers to install flags along

CAPTIVATING: A flag

featuring Lincoln University’s

Ivey Hall is one of eight

designs by Evolution

Creative to be unfurled on

Lincoln’s Gerald St. PHOTO:

GILBERT WEALLEANS

the street, so now there are no

health and safety implications.

Each flag features an individual

mono-coloured black

image.

Another five flags are expected

to be added in the coming

months.

The symbols range from a

microscope and Lincoln University’s

Ivey Hall to represent

the area’s education, to an acorn

of an oak tree, sparrow and New

Zealand flax as a way of showcasing

the area’s environmental

heritage.

Other flags feature a rooster

and gates as a “nod to the rural

sector” and an old bike to represent

the township’s rail trail, Mr

Crawford said.

Lincoln Community Committee

secretary Pauline Hayes

said the flags will generally stay

up in the township the whole

time unless other significant

functions are on.

She said it was a good way to

“spruce up” the area.

Mrs Hayes said it was a

lengthy process due to a combination

of getting a designer and

the appropriate poles for the

FlagTrax system.

THE EUROPEAN blow fly

or blue bottle fly, calliphora

vicina, is an insect that we all

detest, particularly around

food.

With a bluey-grey coloured

thorax and abdomen, this

10mm long, introduced fly is

a little smaller than the New

Zealand endemic blue blow

fly.

Females lay up to 300 creamy

white eggs on fresh carrion or

on open wounds.

Depending on temperatures,

maggots may emerge from eggs

after 18-48 hours. The maggots

grow to a maximum of 18mm

long after eight to 11 days when

they pupate.

Pupae are red-brown in colour

and are usually found close

to the food source.

Although this species can

cause fly strike in live sheep, it

only represents about seven per

cent of the cases.

A macabre fact about

maggots is that their

development and size plays a

crucial role in forensic science,

to help with the planting and to

meet the students.

From All

Black to

Probation

Officer

If you want a career that makes

a difference, come and join us at

Corrections.

AProbation Officer is key to supporting

offenders in achieving change, guiding

them to succeed and not come back into

the system.

This involves meeting with offenders regularly,

either at community corrections sites or the

offender’s residence to help them meet the

requirements of their sentence and have the

support they need to do so. Probation Officers

also prepare reports and recommendations for

the courts and the New Zealand Parole Board.

Probation Officers motivate and encourage

offenders to make positive changes in their

lives, and this often means working closely with

friends, family/whanau, programme facilitators

and community work supervisors as well as

other agencies such as Work and Income,

the Salvation Army and Child, Youth and

Family. Probation Officers will make referrals to

programmes that may assist offenders with an

issue or problem specific to their offending type,

or that may have contributed to their offending.

Paul says that in his Corrections role he

likes the way he can help influence and instill

a positive change in offender’s behaviors,

helping them succeed, from completing their

Community Work hours to gaining employment.

“It’s taking the time to get to know each

person on a personal level, relate to them,

and understand the difficulties they may be

facing. Once you gain the rapport and respect,

it becomes easier to guide them through their

sentence and other issues that may be going on

in their life.”

“I talk to offenders about the importance

of integrity. This means we always strive for

doing the right thing – even when nobody is

Blacks was the day the foundations for his

career beyond rugby were laid.

Miller got just two games in the black jersey

before being axed. But he believes the 2001

experience is one that helped prepare him for

the job he finds himself in today – a Probation

Officer with Corrections in Dunedin working to

rehabilitate young offenders.

“In rugby I had a lot of adversity,” he says.

“There were injuries and setbacks (like not being

picked again for the All Blacks) but I learnt to

get back up. These things give you strength and

resilience and it’s what I try to help young people

with today.”

watching. Integrity plays a big part in my role,

and offenders’ success in maintaining a crime

free life.”

In his role, Paul is part of the Youth Champions

team in Dunedin and says he would like to

see more of the young men he works with,

reconnect with sport.

“Many of these young people live quite

chaotic lives. They have the best intentions and

ambitions but unfortunately they struggle to

maintain their good intentions and reach their

goal. That’s where I found the fundamental

elements associated with being involved

It was a hard lesson for Miller, his playing career

over Miller was faced with the question of what

to do next. He initially got a job at his old high

school, King’s High School in Dunedin, as a

sports co-ordinator before noticing vacancies for

probation officers during an internet search.

“I try to help them develop

resilience and integrity,

things I learnt from my

playing days. I tell them I

got knocked down, I had

injuries, I had failures, but

the important thing is to

get back up.”

Miller, who has been in the job for just over

a year, helps to rehabilitate young people

aged between 17 and 24 many of whom

have completed prison sentences or who are

undertaking community work.

“Most have had trouble because of alcohol and

substance abuse and my role is to help them

plug the gaps and get back on the right track,”

he says. “It’s definitely rewarding and for me it’s

about the small things like helping a someone

prepare for a job interview.”

with sport helped. Discussing and planning

toward an outcome, taking small steps to help

them navigate their journey to an offence free

lifestyle.”

Paul is part of the Otago District Community

Corrections team which manages around 1,000

offenders on sentence in the community at any

time.

“The diversity of the people you work with

makes every day different. I love a challenge

and with this role, every day is different. It’s a

privilege to be involved with Corrections and

part of the Corrections team.”

While we would all agree that

Rolleston has faced explosive

growth post-earthquake and requires

additional public facilities

to cope with this, our heartland

towns have also been undergoing

a quiet renaissance and increasingly

are in need of district

council investment.

I particularly think of Leeston,

which has a strong community,

good schools, a business

community that is prepared to

reinvest in the town (Crate and

Barrel, RD1, and the new Tire

and Auto build being examples).

The district council has made

a small investment to assist

Lakeland Art establishing on

the main street, but the lack of

a functional community centre

is really holding back the town.

Currently, the district council

is proposing to build a new

community centre in Leeston in

2025/26.

It is my belief that this project

should be brought forward to

assist this community.

Having been involved with

the recent rebuild of the Tai

realistically advise that from the

Nigel Hampton

Former Leeston resident has a

Leeston born and raised

criminal defence lawyer

Nigel Hampton QC, 73,

has been involved in

the justice system for 53

years. He talks to Julia

Evans about being made

a Companion of the New

Zealand Order of Merit

for his services to the

law, his love of rugby

and some of his most

fascinating cases

Congratulations on the

Queen’s Birthday Honour. How

did it feel to get that under your

belt?

It was a mix of feelings, really.

I’m sort of ambivalent about the

public side of it. Inside you’re

pleased, quietly pleased with

the recognition of it. It was a

surprise. Criminal lawyers don’t

get accolades really. The public

persona is not seen as one of the

most honourable parts of the

profession in a funny way. The

reality is different, but that’s the

public perception sometimes, I’m

afraid.

How did your family react?

They’re pretty pleased, delighted

really. One of my grandsons,

a youngster, made it the theme of

his morning talk at school. That

was quite wonderful in its own

way.

Can you tell me a little bit

about them?

They’re spread around a bit

now. My wife and I, we’ve got a

lot of kids. Three in Canterbury,

one in Auckland, one in

Tauranga, one in Sydney and one

in New York. Ten grandchildren

as well, from ages five to 21.

They’re a good bunch.

Have your children followed

you into law?

No, not directly. One of them

has a law degree, but he’s a

diplomat in New York. Because

of the sort of work I’ve done

most of my life, the criminal

work, a lot of it was not made for

dinner-time discussion. Your

actual cases were not the subject

of discussion, though law and

politics was often the subject of

discussion in the wider sense.

Have you always lived in

Christchurch/Canterbury?

I was born and brought up in

Leeston so primary school in

Leeston, secondary school in

Southbridge and for my last two

years of secondary school I came

into Christchurch. Pretty well

lived in Christchurch ever since

except for a few years in Tonga

when I was the chief justice over

there.

When you’re not in court,

what does a day off look like?

For the last 29 years, we’ve

owned an old farmhouse in

Okains Bay. We used to go there

with the children in the school

holidays. It’s a lovely spot. The

opportunity eventually came for

us to buy the place over there, so

days off are primarily thought of

in terms of that house and some

sailing, land yachting, dragging

nets of flounder, paua gathering,

swimming. All of those things

that are connected with the

house at the beach. We get there

as often as we can. The cellphone

doesn’t work over there, which is

nice. It’s still one of the charms

of those sort of places.

Do you still play rugby?

I played my last game of

rugby when I was 60, so I haven’t

played in a few years now. I’ve

still retained links to and interest

in rugby after having become

part of the rugby judiciary and

chair of the New Zealand Rugby

judiciary. I’ve played a part for

the SANZAAR Super Rugby

competition for the last eight

years or so. I chair their foul play

review committee and also do

judiciary work for world rugby

so I was on call for the first Ireland/Australia

test. If anything

happens, I fly over and conduct

a hearing. It combines a bit of

my passion for rugby and my

passion for justice. When you get

to spend time doing those things

together, it’s a lovely feeling.

What club did you play for?

Initially it was Leeston,

Canterbury Country rugby in

Leeston. Then I took a break for

a while when I made a bit of a

career. When I came back to it,

I played for Canterbury University.

Then for Christchurch and

back to Canterbury University.

There’s some mixed loyalties

there. You form friendships out

of the rugby, as with any sporting

endeavour you enter into.

In terms of your career, how

did you find yourself in law?

Just by default really, in a

funny way. Last year of school, I

knew I didn’t have the necessary

background, my country

education wasn’t strong in

maths and sciences. I’d thought

about medicine. But I did like

and was strong in English and

things literary and I knew that

teaching wasn’t for me. Some

of the others at school had gone

into law and said give it a shot,

so I did. It developed quite nicely

really. By the time I qualified,

the system was a bit different in

those days, you used to do most

of your study working as a law

clerk. You’d do your lectures

early in the morning before

the start of the work day, and

at the end of the day, after the

work day. Your lectures were

basically between 8am and

9am and from 5pm until 8pm.

By the time you finished your

degree and qualified, you had

quite an amount of practical

hands-on experience. By sitting

in the back of the court as your

employers would allow you,

you’d observe lawyers in action

lot of information and hopefully

skill of how to do things. So

once you got there yourself,

53-year passion for justice

Have you always specialised in

criminal law?

Well you’re talking early to

mid-60s and specialisation wasn’t

really around to the degree it

is now. If you did court work,

you did all sorts of court work

whether it was civil or debt

collection or what would be

seen now as family, though it

was called domestic back then

or it was criminal. If you were

going to have a court-based

practice you really had to do

everything. Christchurch is still a

comparatively small city, so if you

wanted to make your full-time

occupation a court lawyer, you

had to do everything.

What are some of your career

highlights?

It is difficult to nominate

individual cases. In a career that

you’ve done close to somewhere

near 100 homicides of various

sorts it really is difficult to

single out cases. Instrumental in

making my name as a criminal

lawyer, which did lead to

specialisation and at the time

a quite sensational trial on the

West Coast, a man called Bailey

for killing his wife. There were

extraordinary circumstances

involved in it and it lead to

his acquittal against quite a

mountain of evidence with

the Solicitor-General himself

prosecuting it. About the same

time I acted for the Island Bay

Labour MP Gerald O’Brien

charged with indecencies

and persuaded the senior

magistrate in Christchurch at

the preliminary hearing that

the charges should be thrown

out. Having taken a chance

and cross-examined quite

vigorously the two complainants

against O’Brien I persuaded the

magistrate that their evidence

was not worthy of any credit and

the charges should be thrown

out, which is what he did. So

those two cases really made

my reputation and lead to me

specialising in the criminal field.

To nominate cases from there

on is very difficult. In all of them

you hope you’re giving your best

and doing your best to obtain

justice for your client. You’d

pick out and say some of the

allegations against police officers

for kidnapping Rastafarians in

the Ruatoria area, they were some

sensational cases in the mid to

late 80s. During my period of

time in Tonga in the mid-90s

there was a significant case,

which I’m quite proud of in a

way, three people, one of them

now the prime minister in Tonga.

Three people had people had

been imprisoned by Parliament

for contempt of Parliament

and they brought a written

habeas corpus in to be released.

I determined that they had not

been properly summonsed in

front of the house, they had not

been given proper particulars of

the charge or charges, which they

were to face and that they had

not been given a proper trial so

I said that was not withstanding

the certain conventions that

relate to courts not interfering

in Parliamentary processes, that

not withstanding that this was

such a breach of constitutional

rights, rights that were embedded

in the Tongan constitution, that

these three men had to be set

free. You’re glad when you look

back on that and realise there

were pressures on you not to

interfere with Parliament and

let Parliament go its own way.

But on the other hand I saw the

rule of law, fairness and justice

required and constitutional

rights required that these men

be set free. So you look back on

those sort of things and you’re

glad you did hold the line.

How was it working on the

high profile cases like Pike

River Mine and CTV Building?

It bought about quite a change

and it was quite an opportune

moment for in a way, given the

advance of years. It was a chance

to step away for a bit from some

of the stresses of doing criminal

defence work and to look in and

take up totally different aspects of

the law in terms of public safety

and the failures both individual

and collective to protect people

at work in the case of the Pike

River Mine and both people and

work and the public coming

into buildings in the case of the

CTV Building. It has been quite

a change in my practise and has

brought me to think about some

of the issues that are involved in

some of those aspects of public

law. Such as the protection

of peoples, both workers and

members of the public and what

protections should be afforded

to them, what sanctions should

be thought of and should be

imposed or at least thought of

being imposed on people and

corporations involved in not only

the running of such enterprises,

the planning of them and

managing them like mining and

other hazardous enterprises, but

also involved in the designed and

consenting of the buildings where

public have rights of access. In

both instances, in the mine and

the building, the position that

the governmental, both local and

central, governmental agencies

as regulators should play and

whether they are sufficiently

contentious in their performance

of their obligations. In both cases

I would say there were failures of

the regulators in relation both to

the mine and the building.

Is the New Zealand legal

system the best it could be?

What improvements could be

made? What do we do well?

By and large we do have a

very good and uncorrupt legal

system. I stress the uncorrupt. It’s

a trait not to be under-emphasised.

When you look around the world,

we are very fortunate indeed

that we have never had issues of

corruption in the New Zealand

judicial system. That is a very

positive thing. I think our legal

system works quite well but it is

under resourced. It could be better

managed in its years in terms of

the different courts that we have.

They could be better structured

and better managed than they

are, but that’s pretty minor in the

scheme of things.

Our People

Passion for justice

•From page 16

What we do lack is a sufficiency

in numbers at all levels

but particularly at the levels

where most of the work is done

and that is in the district court in

its civil jurisdiction, but particularly

in its criminal and family

jurisdictions. Both of those are

woefully under-judged in terms

of the number of judges and

both have significant and growing

back logs. There is much to

be said for that old saying, justice

delayed is justice denied. If I

look back over my 50-plus years,

the one thing that I would say

that has been a degradation of

the system is the length of time

between a case being started in

the court initiating papers and

it getting through to a decision.

What has happened, is it has

grown from a matter of just a few

months to a matter of years. That

is of great concern and it is not

fair to litigants, whether civil,

criminal or family, not fair to

witnesses and it only makes particularly

factual determinations

harder and harder for judges.

Have you ever considered

becoming a district or High

Court judge yourself?

No. I had an interesting experience

doing that in Tonga, it

Merit for services to the law.

was the break from doing things

that I wanted to have happen.

I enjoyed it. But being at the

bar gives you a freedom, which

includes the freedom to speak

publicly on important issues,

which I have done a fair bit of in

my time. I think its important

particularly when you get to be

senior in your profession, senior

at the bar. That senior voice

needs to be heard on issues from

time to time. While you remain

at the bar and remain a barrister,

you have that ability still to be

heard. If you become a judge you

lose that, you become subject to

the dictates of where you’ve got

to be, what you’ve got to do. Having

been a barrister just about all

of my life, first in a firm but more

lately, for the last 30 years as an

individual practitioner, I value

that freedom too much. Being

able to work in your own profession,

in your own way and in

your own time is something that

I would not lightly give away.

I know you spoke out about

now liking the design of the

new Justice Precinct, has it

grown on you since you’ve been

working there?

It’s grown even more adversely

on me, not more fondly. I retain

my views about it. It is an important

constitutional aspect that

police and courts shouldn’t be in

the same building complex. That

is inappropriate and that still is

my most fundamental criticism

of that building.

Any plans to slow down and

retire?

No, whilst I retain my physical

health and I think have a reasonable

mind still and whilst my

memory doesn’t get too slippery,

I have no plans to slow down.

CELEBRATION: More

than 1.4 million visits

have been recorded

at the Selwyn Aquatic

Centre in the five

years since opening. ​

Aquatic centre to

celebrate milestone

THIS MONTH marks the fifth

anniversary of the opening of

the Selwyn Aquatic Centre,

birthday bonanza event.

More than 1.4 million people

have visited the centre since its

opening in June 2013.

Aquatic facilities manager

James Richmond says the

centre continues to offer a wide

range of events, programmes

and services to the Selwyn

community.

“We are proud to have offered

world class aquatics services

for the last five years and look

forward to an even bigger and

better future once the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre extension

project is completed,” he said.

“We would like to thank the

community for their continued

support in making the facility

such a success.”

THe district council recently

approved a proposal to expand

the aquatic centre with the

addition of a 25m pool.

This will be a significant boost

to the centre, allowing more

swimmers to enjoy the facility

and increasing the capacity for

events. Construction is expected

to begin next year.

The birthday bonanza event

is being held on Sunday from

2–4pm.

Anyone is welcome to join the

party, which will feature a DJ,

Have your say on

policy for gaming machines

Time is running out to have a say on Selwyn District Council’s Gambling Venue Policy. The 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 five machines

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

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,

Are you part of a community of

The Everything Selwyn website has been launched and will become

It has been developed by Council in conjunction with Selwyn’s

information for those new to New Zealand or Selwyn.

Members of the Selwyn community are encouraged to register and

add their own listings or events to let Selwyn know what they do.

SELWYN TIMES

Lincoln Combined punching well

Lincoln Combined are the

surprise package of the

UC Championship rugby

competition so far in 2018.

Selwyn Times sports

reporter Jacob Page finds

out the reasons for their

early season success

COACH MIKE Wilson knew

from round one of the UC

Championship he had a side with

a different attitude to previous

Lincoln Combined teams.

They were beaten 13-12 by

Rangiora High in the first

round. In past years, they would

have been happy just to get close

to some of the more fancied

teams.

But after the loss at Rangiora

in early May, Wilson saw

something completely different.

“I saw with the way we

handled that loss and I knew

that these boys weren’t happy

with being close anymore – they

wanted to be better,” Wilson

said.

He could tell from the

expressions on his players’ faces

after the round one loss that

they were not happy with being

close.

The defeat to Rangiora could

have been the scene-setter for

2018 for the team, but instead the

team has surged to third place on

the ladder after winning five of

themselves in the top four of the UC Championship and are one of the surprise teams of 2018.

their next six games, including

a 11-8 win over Timaru Boys’

High on Saturday.

The team, which is made up of

secondary school players from

Ellesmere, Lincoln and Darfield,

have a tough edge which perhaps

was missing in past seasons.

It is Wilson’s second year in

charge – he took over when the

team was in it’s debut season in

the combined form.

Wilson had a couple of seasons

coaching the Ellesmere colts

from 2010 before returning to

SPORTS

the team he once played for – the

Banks Peninsula division two

side.

Then last year he took the

reins at Lincoln Combined. “The

allure of the job was coaching

a team in the best under-18

competition in our region,”

Wilson said.

He said while he knew the

team would have talent, he

knew results wouldn’t define

them.

“When I first got in the role I

saw a lot of players with plenty of

individual skills and talents and

it’s been our job as coaches to try

to mould that into a good team

performance on the field,” he

said. The team has experienced

players like halfback Robert

Sporke, who has already made

an appearance for Rolleston

in the senior competition and

second-five Wil Gualter, who

has led the team and kicked two

match-winning penalties.

However, for Wilson it’s about

the unsung players. “There’s been

great competition for minutes

this year and players have been

more individually responsible

for their own performance to the

team,” he said.

“While we haven’t had a full

70min performance yet, I can’t

deny the squad has a great

ability to work hard to the final

whistle and that’s seen us get

wins in games we would have

lost in previous years,” Wilson

said.

“Players like Cam Jordan,

who has made the transition

from hooker to loose forward,

or Cameron Murdoch, who was

a lock last year and is now a

winger making huge progress.

That’s the sort of thing that

pleases me.

“The results come from the

hard work that those on the

outside don’t necessarily see.”

Ellesmere coach Alex

Robertson said having the team

performing so well, showed the

strength of rugby in the region.

“This is exciting for the future

of rugby in this region,” he said.

“With seven of our Ellesmere

colts players making the senior

team this season, there’s definitely

a pathway for rugby talent

here.”

Five Ellesmere players have

also made the 2018 Canterbury

provincial team named last

week.

Wilson said the opportunities

have never been so good for his

players.

can have a decent rugby future

Coach Wilson’s way

LINCOLN COMBINED coach

Mike Wilson (right) is not

someone who’s ever obsessed

with the scoreboard.

For him, it’s the effort of his

players and the work they put in

on their own individual responsibilities

that takes care of the

points on the board.

“That’s one of the big changes

this year; there’s competition for

playing minutes and even players

who aren’t likely to get many

are really pushing the starting

players and making our training

fun,” he said.

Wilson’s move to coaching

came when his playing days

with the Banks Peninsula division

two team came to an end.

“My uncle was coaching out

there and he needed players in

2003 and I ended up playing

there until about 2010,” he said.

He then had two seasons

coaching the Ellesmere colts

before the allure of coaching the

UC Championship came calling

last season.

“When I got there, I was

happy with the individual skills

of each player, it was just about

getting the most out of them,”

he said. Wilson said there

is a good atmosphere in the

team at training and that is

helping with the overall

performances.

“The guys work hard and we

offer them the chance every

week for individual feedback

because they’re at an age where

that can be valuable in their

progression.”

He said he doesn’t get as

much satisfaction out of winning

as he does seeing players

improve their skills and grow

as people. “Hopefully the kids

see a pathway to their rugby

ambitions here in the Ellesmere

district,” he said.

THREE TEAMS appear to

have a genuine shot at the

Selwyn netball premier title.

The competition took another

interesting twist at the

weekend when Broadfield

and Lincoln played out a 60-

all draw on Saturday which

left Greenpark A as the only

unbeaten team in round two.

Broadfield had beaten the

defending champions by a

single goal in round one and

clawed their way back to

get a share of the spoils in a

match they trailed from the

outset.

Broadfield coach Yvonne

Crichton-Hill was thrilled

with how her team handled

the pressure in the final minutes

of the game.

“We showed some really

cool heads to get a draw – I

was very happy to share the

new venue. Club president

Paul Frewen and junior club

captain Mark Leonard asked

the district council for

a low interest loan of

$560,000.

The new facility will

have three 12m x 12m

prefabricated buildings

with new kitchen and

bar facilities.

The original plan

was to move the

current facility at Rolleston

capacity, its need to be

brought up to the building

“While I’m really happy

with how the team stuck

to the task, sometimes the

Crichton-Hill praised the

continued hard work in the

mid-court of Laura Lowe

and Caroline Millar.

She said these were exciting

times for her team.

“We respect Lincoln but

we know that between them,

us and Greenpark, it’s all

very close,” she said.

Greenpark A comfortably

ladder.

Greenpark B beat Southbridge

from a long spell through

That was no more evident in

the latter stages of their 36-24

win over Rakaia in the Luisetti

division one rugby final in

front of a big crowd at Tai Tapu

Domain on Saturday.

The Waihora pack was

reduced to seven forwards when

hooker Sam Bright was yellowcarded

with 15min to play and a

slender 29-24 advantage to hold

on to. But Waihora held firm.

“Rakaia wouldn’t back down

up and showed they wanted it,”

said Waihora coach Joff Mooar.

That was enough for Mooar

to get excited at the prospect of

victory.

Waihora made the most of

home ground advantage and led

for most of the game.

However, Rakaia – cheered on

by more than two bus loads of

travelling fans – refused to go

Kirk scored 16 of his 21 points

THERE IS a mix of youth

and experience in the 25-man

Ellesmere colts team which was

named on Sunday.

Two 18-year-olds have been selected,

with Rolleston midfielder

Colts manager Dave Beatty

said when he made the phone

calls to the two players, he got a

excitement from the guys,” he

said.

“There was an enthusiasm

from everyone that they just

wanted to rip into it, get together

Beatty said he was happy with

their opening game against Mid-

Canterbury on July 3.

“We have a mix of guys that we

think can maintain our standards,

as well as a couple of

could be involved in the team for

the next two or three years,” he

said.

“We are fortunate that 90 percent

is a nice position to be in.”

The team will play a big game

Uni initiative to seek alternatives

to current land-use models

A new Lincoln University initiative is responding to the need for new ways of using our land more

productively while ensuring New Zealand’s future prosperity and enhancing lives.

The initiative, called Designing Future

Productive Landscapes, is a multidisciplinary

approach, which could span

the university as it seeks to find alternatives

to “current and narrow models of land-use

options and practices”.

These land-use options and practices

limit not only sustainability and

the resilience of landscapes and the

agroecosystems embedded within them,

but also constrain regeneration of land,

environment and culture.

The initiative follows the

recommendations of last year’s

Transformation Board Report urging

Lincoln to deliver positive changes in land,

food and ecosystems.

It will involve students working in a

‘living laboratory’, ‘incubating’ ideas in the

classroom that can be ‘hatched’ in the field.

Involving academics from agricultural,

landscape and Māori perspectives, it is the

first of three to be announced this year.

Its comprehensive research programme

incorporates projects in hill country,

dryland and irrigated landscapes.

Initiative lead, Professor Pablo

Gregorini, said production landscapes – te

taiao – underpin cultures and prosperity of

societies worldwide.

However, a number of transformations

and pressures are affecting landscapes

here and around the world, diminishing

biodiversity, reducing water and air

quality, and accelerating loss of soil and

plant biomass (amongst other factors).

“Given New Zealand’s economic reliance

on food agricultural production and

provenance, our global brand, prosperity

and well-being are at risk.

“We want to create adaptive

agroecosystems to re-connect our

landscape, our livestock (agriculture) and

ourselves, by restoring broken linkages

among plants, herbivores and humans

with diets that nourish and satiate, as well

as heal our planet,” Professor Gregorini

said.

“Our objective demands a multidisciplinary

response, integrating skills

and knowledge across farming systems,

ecology, landscape design, social science

and other disciplines.”

Some of the areas the initiative could

address include:

• Reshaping and reimagining Māori

productive landscapes that will support

and sustain the mauri of te taiao while

continuing to grow the Māori economy

• Encouraging regional councils to

develop approaches for identifying and

designing distinctive ways to increase a

landscape’s full range of productivity

• Helping Government agencies to

establish new baselines and benchmarks

for monitoring landscape value and

productivity.

Potentially, the initiative could involve

all staff across the entire disciplinary range

at Lincoln University.

Key collaborators could involve CRIs

and other universities, in New Zealand and

internationally, and ideas could be trialled

on some of the university’s farms.

Dairy farmers urged to

engage on Zero Carbon Bill

Climate Change Ambassadors for the

dairy sector are encouraging all dairy

farmers to engage with the Government

during the consultation period of the Zero

Carbon Bill, which started last Monday,

June 11 and runs for six weeks.

Canterbury farmer Theona Blom says all

those in the agricultural sector should be

aware of the outcome this Bill is trying to

achieve.

“We know that dairy farmers, as well

as the entire agricultural sector, have a

significant role to play in helping New

Zealand lower its biological emissions,”

she says.

“Later this year, when the Bill is

introduced into Parliament, it will be very

difficult to make any substantial changes,”

says Northland farmer Andrew Booth.

“Now is our chance to get the farmer

voice heard by the people drafting this

legislation. It’s really important that

farmers engage now and fully understand

the intent of the legislation.”

DairyNZ is running regional workshops

throughout June for dairy farmers

about why agricultural emissions need

to be addressed, as well as covering the

development of the Zero Carbon Bill.

“These workshops aren’t an opportunity

to debate climate change,” says Taranaki

farmer Trish Rankin. “They are an

opportunity to understand climate change,

and hear about what we can do to play our

part.

“The environmental work farmers up

and down the country are doing right now

is already helping to reduce greenhouse gas

emissions, but we want to stay proactive

and engaged on this journey.”

Biological emissions, methane and

nitrous oxide, from the dairy sector make

up 22.5 per cent of New Zealand’s emissions

and nearly half of all the agricultural

sectors emissions.

“All New Zealanders need to think

about their environmental footprint,” says

Bay of Plenty farmer Fraser McGougan.

“Collectively every little bit of change each

of us can make will help on this journey.

“We hope this Bill will provide certainty

for the sector, and all sectors of New

Zealand, about what is expected of us

on this journey towards a low emission

future.”

Dairy farmers can learn more about the Zero Carbon Bill by registering for one of the eight DairyNZ

regional climate change workshops throughout June at www.dairynz.co.nz/roadshow, or attending one

of the Ministry for the Environment’s regional roadshows. See www.ourclimateyoursay.nz for details.

Kitchen facelifts

give new life

As one of the most used spaces in any home, kitchens

can easily begin to look very tired. As trends, and personal

tastes change, it makes sense to consider upgrading your

kitchen.

Instead of installing a complete new kitchen, which can

be expensive and quite disruptive, you may consider a

kitchen facelift. Rather than taking out everything in the

existing kitchen, a facelift can be as simple as replacing

benchtops, drawer fronts and cupboard doors.

Using the existing layout and plumbing – changing

either, or both, can be done, but usually involves more time

and cost – a kitchen facelift is an opportunity to change the

colour scheme, add some personal and functional touches,

and give your kitchen, and home, new life. New appliances,

if they suit your budget, can enhance any facelift and add

value to your house if you intend to sell.

One consideration for a kitchen facelift is the type of

benchtop. Laminate is durable and cost effective, and is

available in a wide range of styles and colours. Bamboo

benchtops are contemporary and add a warmth that

complements mid tones and earthy colours, and other

organic materials. Granite and engineered stone are

more costly and tend toward high end kitchens, but their

popularity and advances in technology have made them

more affordable.

Splashbacks can come in a variety of materials and

colours, and are another way to add personal touches that

are easily changed later on. Cabinet and drawer handles are

a detail that can give your kitchen even more personality.

These also come in a vast range of styles, materials and

colours.

There are many lighting options now and existing lighting

can be changed or enhanced to highlight the look of your

updated kitchen. Pendant lights are ideal over islands, and

LED strip lights offer good overall illumination.

Flooring options, too, may be another thing to consider.

There are many hard wearing, relatively inexpensive

possibilities, including linoleum and vinyl. Bamboo

flooring can be less expensive than traditional hardwood

floors, and is more eco-friendly.

A kitchen facelift may also be a good time to consider

a water filtration system. Under bench systems are easily

installed and inexpensive. The taste and health benefits

will be worth the investment if water quality is a concern

(www.aqua.co.nz).

While any renovation can seem a little daunting,

many local companies specialise in kitchen facelifts and

makeovers, and offer consultation services and advice.

Install Concepts (www.installconcepts.co.nz), Dream

Doors (www.dreamdoors.co.nz) and Kitchen Studio

(www.kitchenstudio.co.nz) are just a few.

Winter – time to think swimming pools

In the summer months, a swimming pool

is fun for all the family, a social centrepoint,

an effective exercise tool, and always

a valuable addition to your home.

As winter sets in, however, swimming

pools may not be on your mind. If you

want to be enjoying your new pool in the

summer months, however, now is the ideal

time to start making plans. The consultation

and design phase takes time, as does

the processing of consent applications.

Finance, if that is a consideration, takes

time, too, and after the pool is installed,

the landscaping and finishing touches such

decks, paving, shade covers, and fencing all

add to the amount of time required to get

the project finished.

Pools come in a variety of shapes, sizes

and depths, with numerous features to

consider – heated or not; indoor or outdoor;

spa pool; salt water; infinity design; features

such as fountains and waterfalls, and many

more.

Pool sales and consultation companies

such as Mayfair Pools (www.mayfairpools.

co.nz), Lagoon Pools (www.lagoonpools.

co.nz) and Compass Pools (www.

compasspools.co.nz) have comprehensive

information on their websites and local

consultants who will answer questions, and

guide clients through the entire process.

There are also a variety of new

technologies available such as robotic or

built in self-cleaning systems to make

pool maintenance much simpler, and

cover and roller systems make uncovering

and covering pools a breeze. There are

vast ranges of lighting options to enhance

the look of your pool at night, and solar

heating systems can be economical and

environmentally friendly. Many of these

functions can be remotely controlled.

If you want to be in your new pool this

coming summer, now is the best time to

begin the process. As the weather warms

up, that is often when people start thinking

about a new pool and you want to be ahead

of them. It is a significant investment, and

as with many things, it takes time to get

it done properly. Contact one of the local

suppliers for more information and get

started today.

Enjoying, and being

proud of, your yard

is one of the small

pleasures in life.

Ultimate outdoor space

With winter settling in, it is time to step

back and look at how you can continue

to enjoy your outdoor environment

undeterred by the change of seasons.

Whether you are hosting family and

friends, or just enjoying some you-time,

being able to utilise your outdoor space with

shade from the harsh sun or shelter from

inclement weather is the dream lifestyle.

The Bowranda patio roof is the ultimate

solution to your needs, providing you

comfort and protection through all four

seasons. It is a permanent outdoor space

that provides shelter from the elements,

offering a desirable compromise for those

who want to be outside the four walls of

their house whilst avoiding exposure to

spoiling weather extremities.

Tailored to the needs of New Zealanders,

Bowranda’s ingeniously designed roof

incorporates a specialised membrane that

eliminates 99 per cent of UV rays, whilst

still preserving ambient light.

This provides you protection from

harmful rays without compromising the feel

of a natural sun-lit area, and unlike other

shade composites, it will not unduly darken

the adjacent interior.

The Bowranda is not just a sun-shade;

it protects from all elements, making it a

true stand-out from other forms of outdoor

shading. With the ability to simply add

roller blinds in sunscreen mesh

or clear PVC, homeowners are

protected from sun, wind and rain

from any direction.

Constructed of powder-coated

aluminium and marine grade

stainless steel fixings, the structural

design of Bowranda was developed

over a 5-year period to provide the

full confidence and integrity of a 10-

year guarantee.

The intentional square profile

of the roof line and vertical posts

ensures aesthetic conformity

with New Zealand’s residential

architecture.

The Bowranda patio roof is

centrally manufactured by Unique

Outdoors to the exact specifications

and dimensions required to meet

any customer’s outdoor aspirations.

Here’s what the Brohm family had to say

about their Bowranda.

“We have had a Bowranda added to our

home with door and window screens as well,

all installed by Shane and his team. This

business has been excellent to deal with. The

Bowranda was installed by the date promised

and we are very pleased with the results. We

would definitely recommend this business

and the products they supply. Great service.” -

A & B Brohm, Blenheim

Cost effective, efficient

heating solutions

By now, you have switched on the heaters,

or fired up the log burner. It’s never too late,

however, to consider new, possibly more

cost effective forms of heating your home.

If you are still huddling around a fan heater,

or an unflued gas heater, then perhaps it

really is time to consider other options.

A warm, dry home is important when it

comes to health and comfort. Insulation

plays an important role in keeping heat in

and is relatively easy to add to or upgrade

in most homes. When it comes to heating,

there are many options.

Modern wood burners are very efficient

and can be inexpensive to run, especially

with the availability of a cheap or even free

wood supply. Pellet fires are generally more

efficient than log burners, pellet supplies

are plentiful, and most quality models use a

battery back-up so they are not dependent

on electricity to get started. Pellet and log

fires, however, must comply with air quality

regulations. There is information about this

at www.mfe.govt.nz

Heat pumps are probably the most

common form of home heating. They

are economical and effective, especially

ducted heat pump systems which heat the

whole house. Both these systems can be

installed in most houses easily, but they

are dependent on electricity. It may be an

advangate to have a generator or a backup

heating source in the event of a power

outage.

Gas heating is also popular and

convenient. Unflued and portable gas

heaters are not recommended as they emit

moisture and pollutants which can be

unsafe. Flued gas heaters heat fast and are

relatively inexpensive to run. They come

in a wide range of designs. Suppliers such

as Simply Heat (www.simplyheat.co.nz)

will discuss with you the best options. Gas

prices can vary widely. Kiwigas (www.

kiwigas.co.nz) is a local supplier with great

service and competitive prices.

Infrared heating is a relatively new

technology. Infrared panels emit radiant

heat, which results in a more evenly heated

space. Fast heating, infrared panels can

be mounted on any flat surface, walls or

even ceilings to maximise space. They are

unobtrusive, and can be painted to suit or

blend with décor, or printed with artwork

or a photo to make them even more

inconspicuous (www.hometech.co.nz).

Even in winter it is not too late to

reconsider inefficient heating options.

These heating solutions should be installed

by qualified professionals, and existing

heating systems should be checked and

maintained regularly. Juice Electrical

(www.juiceelectrical.co.nz), and Laser

Electrical Rolleston (www.Laserelectrical.

co.nz) are Selwyn professionals.

New owners, same

passion and service

Zac Swale and his wife Ashley have

recently taken over at Canterbury Lawns.

Zac, who has more than 10 years’ experience

in the road construction industry, also

has considerable experience in all things

yard related - fencing, landscaping, site

preparation and the installation of concrete

pathways, decks and patios, raised flower

beds and planter boxes and more. Zac can

also prepare driveways for concreting or

asphalting, and can recommend qualified

people to do it.

Zac’s main focus, however, is carrying on

Canterbury Lawns’ core service, which is

hydroseeding residential and commercial

properties.

Hydroseeding is the spray-on application

of grass seed in a mulch of wood fibre,

fertiliser, and a ‘tackifier’ which holds it all

together as the seed grows into thick, lush

grass in as little as 4-6 weeks when the

conditions are right. Just a little longer in

other conditions.

The success of the hydroseeding depends

significantly on two things. First, while you

can prepare the site yourself, in order to

take advantage of the guarantee Canterbury

Lawns offers, and to have peace of mind it

has been done properly, it is best to have Zac

prepare it. His experience assures the quality

of the ground onto which the hydroseeding

is applied.

Second, adequate and correct watering

is essential. For this, Zac recommends an

irrigation system, and works closely with

Freeman Irrigation in Rolleston (www.

freemanirrigation.co.nz). Zac also offers

comprehensive aftercare advice.

For situations where instant lawn is

desirable, whether due to weather conditions

or time constraints, Zac and the team are

also skilled at laying out instant lawn. He

will discuss with you the best option for

your particular situation and requirements.

Whether a newly built house requiring

landscaping and lawn, or an existing home

needing a spruce up, including repairs to

fences, decks, pathways and more, Zac and

the team are well placed to resolve any of

those issues. They are also specialists at

erosion control, rural and urban.

Zac and Ashley live locally and are

excited about the opportunities taking over

Canterbury Lawns has brought them. Now

really is the best time to contact them to

make sure your yard is looking its best when

the warmer weather comes around.

Good gardens take time

Enjoying, and being proud of, your

yard is one of the small pleasures in life.

Whether it is an attractive place to relax

in, a productive place full of fruit trees, or

a little of both, the right trees in the right

place are key to achieving satisfaction.

Whether establishing a new yard or

revamping an existing one, there are many

considerations when it comes to the trees

you chose to plant. Perhaps the most

important is ground preparation – making

sure the area is sprayed and weed-free.

Once planted, mulch well, 3 to 4 inches

deep and a metre or so around the tree.

This will give the roots ample opportunity

to take hold. Feather back the mulch from

the tree stem.

There is a plethora of trees to choose to

plant in your yard, depending on what you

want from them - whether pittosporums,

which are not too demanding and are

excellent hedge and screening plants,

or trees such as claret ash, or smaller

ornamental trees such as Japanese maples

which add splashes of beautiful colour to

your garden.

Visiting your local nursery can be

eye-opening. Southern Woods Plant

Nursery (www.southernwoods.co.nz), on

Robinsons Road near Templeton is a one

stop shop for expert advice, a wide range of

quality gardening tools, and a vast selection

of trees and plants, practically everything

you will ever need.

A visit to Southern Woods is an

experience. There is a winter pruning

session in July (contact them for details).

“With pruning you are trying to set up the

tree’s structure for the future,” says Retail

Manager Chris Smith. Proper pruning is

essential for the health and productivity

of any tree. The friendly, expert staff at

Southern Woods are always happy to offer

tips and advice on pruning, or any other

garden related matter.

With smaller sections becoming popular,

so are dwarf trees, trees bred to be smaller

and more compact. These kinds of trees are

perfect if space is an issue, but you want the

aesthetic and benefits of beautiful trees.

Another space-saving technique is

espalier – pruning and tying tree branches

to a frame, or to wire flat against a fence or

wall. As well as taking up less space, these

can be quite decorative, and if fruit trees,

just as productive.

“Good gardens take time,” Chris says.

Sometimes it is preferable to forgo fruit

production on newly planted trees to let

them establish a good root system, and

a great shape with proper pruning. The

long-term results, whether fruit, colour, or

functionality are always worth the time and

effort put in.

Enjoying, and being

proud of, your yard

is one of the small

pleasures in life.

Plums are easy picking

PLUMS ARE so easy to grow

and, when planted with the correct

pollinator, will fruit heavily

after only a few years.

Plums have become more

popular in the past few years with

home gardeners growing more of

their own fruit.

Plum trees grow between 3-4m

high depending on the variety

chosen and how they are pruned.

The three main types flower and

fruit differently. The European

plum, Prunus domestica, flowers

in late September on spurs.

European plums generally have

smaller, rounder oval fruit which

need pollinating. The Japanese

plum, Prunus salicinas, flowers in

early September on last season’s

new wood. It has large, often

pointed fruit. The cherry plums,

which are Prunus cerasifera, are a

cross between the European and

Japanese plums. They flower in

late winter.

Plums prefer a sunny spot with

good drainage. Spring frosts

can be a problem if the plant is

flowering at the time. Water the

plant well during dry periods,

fertilise in early and late spring

with Nitrophoska Blue.

Plums are vigorous growers so

should be pruned for shape and

to keep control of the plant. Thin

out large lateral growths, remove

diseased dead branches; thin

the tree out to allow light in to

promote spur formation. Pruning

should be done after harvest to

prevent disease. Brown rot is the

main disease that affects plums,

along with the odd insect. Birds

are also a pest.

Spray with copper and oil three

times in winter, then with mavrik

or carbaryl and copper monthly

while the tree is in leaf. Watch out

for birds as they love plums too.

Most plum trees need a pollinator

to ensure fruit set. Even

self-fertile plants will benefit

from a companion plant. Some

varieties pollinate lots of other

varieties. You can even buy trees

with pollinators on them. Two or

three varieties are grafted on to a

tree so you get two to three types

of plum on the one tree, which

saves room and the plums get

pollinated properly.

Plums taste best when they are

picked ripe from the tree, some

cherry plums and plum Santa

Rosa are the only self-fertile varieties

available.

Here are some popular

varieties:

Cherry plums Black Doris –

great all purpose, medium-sized,

black-purple skinned, deep red

sweet juicy fruit. Billington or

Omega helps with pollination.

Billington – Cross between

Sultan and the Japanese plum.

Ripens early December-January

and has medium-sized, redskinned,

red flesh, juicy fruit.

Omega – Red flesh with greenred

speckled skin. This plum is

juicy, sweet and self-fertile. A

good all-round plum.

Japanese plums – These plums

are heavier croppers and more

vigorous growing.

Burbank – Has heavy crops of

red fruit with yellow flesh. It is

self-fertile.

Elephant Heart – Is a large

plum with reddish-purple skin

RIPE: Plums taste great

and don’t require a lot of

maintenance.

and sweet red flesh. Its pollinator

is Santa Rosa.

Santa Rosa – Is a large, deep

purple plum with pink-yellow

flesh. It is self-fertile and has

sweet fruit.

Sultan – Is a popular variety

with large red fruit covering the

tree. Its pollinator is Omega.

Satsuma – Has large, round,

dark red fruit and is pollinated by

Santa Rosa.

European plums Greengage

– Is a popular plum producing

greenish-yellow fruit in February.

It is pollinated by other European

plums.

Plums are easy to grow if you

have the room.

Get your

garlic

growing

WE ALL know garlic wards off

vampires, but did you know it also

keeps away aphids, apple scab,

leaf-curl and mosquitoes?

Crush a few cloves, soak in a

litre of water for a couple of days

and use as a spray to keep at bay

ants, spiders, caterpillars and cabbage

and tomato worms too.

And, did you also know, it’s said

to provide many health benefits

I’m not qualified to list?

To put it simply, garlic is right

up there with marigolds as the

companion plant every garden

should have.

And this month, specifically the

shortest day of the year – 21 June,

is the time to plant it.

Look for a well-drained spot –

pots, hanging baskets or any available

space in your raised garden

will suit.

If you’re growing it for its

guardian capabilities, plant it next

to your roses to ward off aphids,

beneath apple and peach trees to

prevent apple scab and leaf-curl,

and next to your tomatoes to protect

against red spider.

Dig in some compost, and

nitrophoska blue fertiliser or use

a potting mix if you’re planting in

baskets or pots.

Plant single cloves twice the

depth of the actual clove, compost

over the top and don’t fill in with

soil.

Then harvest on the longest day

of the year – December 21. It’s as

easy as that.

he first time I woke up with a cold nose in my brand

new home, I was shocked. How could this be? The

cool, calm, collected one and I had planned for our

home to be well insulated against Canterbury’s

cold winters. Turns out, not well enough. We’d

even assured a well-meaning friend we had ample

insulation (yes, Duncan, you were right). I’ve worked out where we

fell short in hindsight. Our home was designed by highly respected

Christchurch architect the late Peter Beaven, for a magic little

Port Hills site, where he planned to live in with his wife Lesley.

Sadly Peter died before realising his plans. We bought them and

employed Archology in Sydney, where we were living at the time, to

prepare the construction drawings and specifications. Compared to

Australia, the R values for insulation would have looked high. Our

talented young builder, Sam McCarthy, would never have queried

the levels because they were standard practice around town. So it

wasn’t until we were living in the house and I consulted Council’s

eco design advisor Julie Villard about how we could warm it up that

we discovered, while we unwittingly thought we had exceeded New

Zealand standard, we had merely met Code. And that ain’t going to

cut it in our climate.

Fortunately Julie had plenty of ideas on how we could improve

the situation and we have easy access to our underfloor to top-up

the insulation. Julie Villard, an architect from France, is on a mission

to transform building best practice here and you can read about the

groundbreaking ideas she’s applied to her own brand new build on

page 20.

I’ve shared the highs and lows of building with the other home

builders and renovators I interviewed and, like Diane (page 36), would

relish doing it again. I was struck by how all the home owners said

what they most valued was the ability of their designer or builder to

“really listen” to their wants and needs. I was also impressed by how

much Christchurch people love a good garage! We’ve got some ideas

for some top of their class cars to complement yours on page 81 and

how to quickly establish a lawn on page 72.

We review all the latest trends in everyone’s favourite room –

the kitchen (page 48), and share an easy yet impressive recipe for

entertaining friends in your fabulous new home on page 77.

I hope Peter Beaven would be pleased with how the cool, calm,

collected one and I realised his dream. Go chase yours people!

Speaking to the NZ Institute of Architects about ‘bespoke

architecture’ being a ‘minority pursuit’ not long before his death

Peter said “I am going to try to prove that it’s possible to build

modestly and cheaply with a little house for ourselves. It’s going to

be sustainable and it’s going to be beautiful and it’s going to be just

cheap – no more than an ordinary spec house. I’ll prove that it can

be done, and it might be the last thing I prove.”

Can I offer on more than

one property at a time?

Some people fall in love at first sight

when they’re looking to buy a property,

but many like to keep their options until

the last minute. This is understandable,

because it can be scary signing up to such

a major financial commitment if you think

something better might come along. But it

can also be hard to know what to do if you’re

not sure if your offer on a property will be

accepted and you are worried about missing

out on the other ones on your wishlist.

“Every time you make an offer on a

property you are saying you are committed

to buying it, subject to whatever conditions

you include in the offer,” says Kevin

Lampen-Smith, chief executive of the Real

Estate Authority (REA). “These conditions

might be things like getting a satisfactory

property inspection, or confirming

insurance, or having finance approved. It

would be extremely unusual to add ‘we want

the right to change our minds in case we see

a property that we like more’.”

Remember that a sale and purchase

agreement – the document that you and the

seller sign that lays out all the particulars

of the property and any chattels being sold

with it, the price you are prepared to pay and

the date that it will take place – is a legally

binding contract, Lampen-Smith says.

“Whether you can make offers on

other properties will depend on how your

conditions are written. This is why it’s

crucial to get legal advice before making the

offer, which becomes legally binding as soon

as it’s accepted. If you offer on a property

while you’re waiting to hear back on another

one, you could end up with two accepted

offers and two legally binding contracts.”

The REA says a seller doesn’t have to

respond to your offer within a certain time

frame unless there is a strict deadline, such

as in a tender or deadline sale. If you are

making an offer on a property that is for

sale by negotiation or by advertised price,

and you think you might want to keep your

options open, talk to your lawyer about

adding an expiry time to it.

“Alternatively, if the deadline for offers has

not passed and you have a change of heart,

you could consider asking the agent about

withdrawing your offer,” Lampen-Smith

says. “In this situation we recommend you

have the agent confirm in writing that your

offer has been withdrawn.

“Keep in mind too that making a

conditional offer on a property, such as

having finance approved, will not necessarily

provide you with a ‘get out of jail free card’

if you subsequently decide you don’t want

to go through with the purchase. In this

situation you could be required to prove

you weren’t able to get finance. The better

option is simply to arrange for your offer to

be withdrawn promptly.”

Buying a property is a

complex process whether

you’re doing it for the first

time or not

Buying a property is a complex process

whether you’re doing it for the first time

or not – but it’s important to take every

decision seriously. If you’re finding it hard

to keep going on your property search, or

to commit to making an offer, it might be

helpful to remind yourself about why you

want to buy a home and to identify your

must-haves. Writing these things down can

help keep you on track and make it easier to

stay focused.

Is it really ok to buy a p house?

There is no denying that

methamphetamine is a dangerous and

insidious drug. Users come from all walks

of life and live in all communities and some

drug testing companies have claimed that

up to 80 per cent of New Zealand homes

could contain traces of the drug. However,

the recent report from the prime minister’s

chief science advisor has pointed out that

most people run a very low risk of living in

a property with dangerous levels of meth

contamination.

The May 2018 report from Professor

Sir Peter Gluckman found that there was

no point in testing a property for meth

contamination unless there was a strong

suspicion or evidence that it had been

used as a meth ‘lab’ or there had been

very heavy drug use there. The researchers

found no evidence of anyone being harmed

from passive use and said there was no

adverse health risk of third-hand exposure

to methamphetamine residue from

smoking found on household surfaces.

Even if someone had been smoking

methamphetamine within a property, any

residue on household surfaces diminishes

over time, so someone living in a property

would not be exposed to a constant dose

every day.

According to the report, a house is safe to

live in up to a methamphetamine level of 15

micrograms per 100cm2, with no adverse

health effects.

No one wants to expose their family to

any health risks or to make a significant

financial commitment to a property if they

are worried that it might go wrong.

When it comes to looking at properties,

it’s always better to rely on concrete

knowledge or evidence rather than rumour.

If you are concerned about a house you are

interested in, ask the real estate agent if it

has been tested, noting that levels less than

15 micrograms per 100cm2 are safe to live

in. If you don’t make the agent aware that

methamphetamine is a real concern to you

the agent is not obligated to tell you about

results that are considered to be safe, with

no health effects (in other words those

below 15 micrograms per 100cm2).

But if you have asked the agent about

methamphetamine the real estate agent

must tell you what they know about a

property and must answer all queries

honestly. If they are aware that a property has

methamphetamine test results either above

OR below 15 micrograms per 100cm2, they

must tell you what they are.

If the local council has been notified

(usually by the New Zealand Police) that the

property has been used as a site for heavy

meth consumption or production, this

should be recorded on the Land Information

Memorandum (LIM).

If you learn that a property has tested

positive for methamphetamine before you

make an offer (and you are still interested

in buying it), your course of action depends

on the level of the result and your appetite

for the work required to put it right. You

can seek advice from a meth testing and

remediation company on the estimated

amount of work required for results above

15 micrograms per 100cm2, and negotiate

with the seller for an according reduction in

price. Alternatively, you can add a condition

to your offer asking the seller to clean and

decontaminate the property to an agreed

acceptable level.

Talk to your lawyer before making an

offer on a property if you are concerned that

it may be affected but you don’t have time

to get it tested. They will be able to advise

you about including a satisfactory test as a

condition of your offer.

Bear in mind that meth testing is not

currently regulated in New Zealand. It may

be a good idea to research the particular

remediation company before you engage

them. Be aware that composite field testing,

where multiple samples taken throughout

a property are combined into a single

sample, can lead to false impressions of

high exposure. This type of testing is not

recommended.

When the meth report came out Sir Peter

Gluckman said people were more at risk

from mould in homes than they were from

meth contamination. His statement is a

good reminder that there are lots of things to

consider when looking for a house to make

your home. Asking questions, weighing up

real evidence is the only way to make sure

you’ll sleep easy with your decision.

Selling a family trust property

– what you need to know

If you don’t approach it in the right way, selling a property that’s part of a trust can get extremely complicated.

If you’re looking to do this in the future, it’s a good idea to get a handle on the process before you start.

Each trust is different and operates on the

conditions set out in the trust deed. So the

first thing you should do is talk to the trust’s

lawyer – ideally the one who was involved

in setting up the trust to start with – as they

will have a good understanding of your

family’s particular circumstances. They will

be able to check the terms of the trust to

ensure whether or not its assets can be sold

(in some trusts, assets are protected from

sale).

You should check that the trust has an

IRD number as you will need one to sell the

property. There may also be tax implications

if you sell the property – this depends on

when it was purchased and whether it is the

main family home. You should check any

tax implications with an accountant.

If the property can be sold, all the trustees

must agree on this course of action. The

lawyer will draw up a resolution that

documents the decision to sell the property

and this must be signed by all the trustees.

Once this process is in train you can start

thinking about how to sell the property. If

you are considering selling privately, be

aware that you will need to have it assessed

by a registered valuer (this is a requirement

of the Trustee Act). While selling privately

can save you money on commission, selling

a property can be complex and you need to

understand the risks involved.

If you decide to use a real estate agent to

sell the property, make sure all the trustees

are in agreement about which agent you

choose. If it’s logistically or practically

difficult for all of you to be involved, it’s a

good idea to nominate one or two trustees

to be in control of the process. Ensure they

document all conversations and decisions

so you have records to refer back to later.

Again, don’t be shy about asking your lawyer

for advice.

Being a trustee means you have to meet

a number of legal obligations. For example,

if you allowed the trust property or other

assets to be sold at a very low price, you

could be liable for breaching your duty of

diligence and prudence.

Even if all the trustees are not involved in

selecting the real estate agent and discussing

the method of sale and marketing for the

property, all of you must sign the agency

agreement to list the property. This is the

contract between the trust and the real estate

agent that sets out how the property will be

marketed for sale and what the commission

will be if it is successfully sold. Again, the

signing of this must be documented in

trustee resolutions. While this may seem

like a lot of bothersome admin, you need to

follow the exact rules of your trust in case

something goes wrong later.

When the property is sold – again, when

all trustees are happy with the price and

conditions – all the trustees must sign the

sale and purchase agreement. The buyer’s

deposit will be held in a lawyer’s or real

estate agent’s trust account. After settlement,

the trust’s assets register should be updated

to reflect the sale.

Once you have signed a sale and purchase

agreement and settlement has occurred, you

need your lawyer or conveyancer to hold

the sale proceeds (less any fees) in the family

trust’s bank account. The proceeds from the

sale will remain in the family trust account

until they are distributed in accordance with

the trust deed.

Selling a family property with multiple

trustees can be a trying time on many

different levels and people don’t always act as

you might hope or expect. A bit of planning,

preparation and sound legal advice will help

you navigate any choppy waters.

selling property, check out settled.govt.nz.

Furniture that makes

a statement

Trends, by definition, come and go, and

are wildly subjective. One “expert” says

‘this’ is the next big thing, while another

disagrees, saying nearly the opposite. That

is probably the time to ignore both of them

and do your own thing. What could go

wrong?

Every now and then, however, these

nameless gurus come together with similar

opinions, and one of the great things about

the global inter-connectedness being

experienced these days is the opportunity

to see up to date, new things that may take

your fancy, whether from the other side of

the world or your local department store.

Furniture is one of the keys to home

décor, both inside and, now more than

ever, outside. Updating that tired old

sofa, and installing a few well appointed

accessories can change the feel of a room

dramatically. In addition to looking good,

furniture needs to be functional, and most

importantly comfortable.

Here are a few ideas of what is currently

popular in furniture and accessories

according to some in the know.

Everyone is talking about ‘statement

furniture.’ While statement ceilings are

taking over bedrooms (also a trend in

2018), statement furniture is appearing

in living spaces. It can be a single piece or

a setting, but the key is being look-at-me

eye catching, standing out in the room.

Whether it is a bold print or colour –

Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2018 is

Ultra Violet, in case you had not heard – or

an interesting design, giving it pride of

place in the room is essential. Remember,

too, if everything is a statement, nothing is

a statement. To make sure your statement

piece stands out, tone down the colours and

textures of the surrounding furniture and

accessories such as coffee tables, pillows,

throws, and rugs.

Upcycled furniture remains popular. It is

an opportunity to give an old piece new life,

saving money and in a small way helping

the environment. What’s stopping you

from re-covering that worn wingback with

something vibrant and perhaps making a

statement piece of it?

Outdoor living is so incorporated into

lifestyles and home design that ‘outdoor

rooms’ are now getting as much attention as

those indoors. Whether a screened-in patio,

gazebo, or even a specially landscaped area,

modular outdoor furniture allows you to

create your own seating arrangement to

suit the space. Advances in design and

technology have seen a vast improvement

in both comfort and durability, making

many outdoor pieces and sets as comfy as

those indoors, and potentially a relaxing

space outdoors in all weather.

Furniture, both indoors and outdoors

can be many things, but it should be

comfortable and welcoming. It should be

placed correctly to suit the room’s shape

and style. It can be anything you want to

make it. With a wealth of information,

advice and examples online, and many

home décor specialists only a phone call

or email away, it is not difficult to discover

what suits your home, your lifestyle, and

your unique personal tastes.

What to ask at

an open home

It’s easy to get carried away when you’re searching through

property listings for the house of your dreams. But if you’re not

careful, home buying can become a nightmare.

“Buying a property is a complex and

potentially stressful process, not least

because it involves such a scary amount

of money,” says Kevin Lampen-Smith,

chief executive at the Real Estate Agents

Authority (REAA).

“It’s smart to do as much as you can to

reduce the risk of unwelcome surprises or

unexpected costs further down the line.”

In the first instance, Lampen-Smith

recommends drawing up a list of questions

to ask about properties you’re interested in.

“Remember that you can ask the real

estate agent anything you like about the

property,” he says. “They are also required

to tell you everything they know and not

withhold any details.”

If you’re not sure what to ask, here’s a

handy list of questions. Open homes can

be busy, so ask the agent if you can talk on

the phone, or send questions via email.

- Have there been any issues with the

property, such as earthquake damage or

water-tightness?

- Are there any offers on the property,

or have any contracts been cancelled by

potential buyers?

- How long has it been on the market?

What is the seller’s preferred settlement

date?

- What maintenance, repairs or

improvements have been carried out? Do

these have permits?

- Is there a Land Information

Memorandum (LIM) available or a

building report prepared by an accredited

property surveyor?

- Is the property well-maintained? What

condition are the roof, piles, wiring, and

plumbing in?

- Is the property insulated? If so, to what

degree (eg walls, underfloor, ceiling)?

- Is there any risk of methamphetamine

(P) contamination?

- If there is a body corporate (usually for

apartments), what does that entail?

- Are there any issues with neighbours

or planned developments?

“If you are seriously considering making

an offer, you will need to do your own

research and seek professional advice. It

may well become your home, so you need

to know as much about it as possible to

save unhappy surprises later,” Lampen-

Smith says.

“Knowing the right questions to ask is a

good starting point.”
