Committee<br />

member<br />

removed<br />

after poor<br />

attendance<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

A TOWNSHIP committee member<br />

has been axed for poor attendance<br />

records.<br />

Malvern Community Board<br />

member Megan<br />

Hands has been<br />

removed from<br />

the Coalgate<br />

Township Committee<br />

due to poor<br />

attendance and<br />

not putting in<br />

apologies for her<br />

Megan Hands<br />

absence.<br />

It comes after the committee<br />

expressed “disappointment” in her<br />

commitment as a community board<br />

representative and asked the board<br />

to consider replacing her.<br />

District councillor Bob Mugford<br />

has since been appointed to take her<br />

place.<br />

Ms Hands said if she was unable<br />

to meet the committee’s expectations<br />

she accepted the consequence<br />

of being removed.<br />

“There is no point forcing yourself<br />

onto a community that doesn’t want<br />

you,” she said.<br />

Ms Hands believes she is a<br />

valuable community board member<br />

and wants to continue advocating<br />

the big issues in Malvern.<br />

FELICITY PLUCK’S photo on page 28 says<br />

it all: Lincoln Combined continue to fly in<br />

They edged out St Andrew’s at the weekend,<br />

a side which is always in contention<br />

for the major honours. Good things are<br />

happening with Lincoln Combined. Once they would have been<br />

regarded by opposition as easy competition points; now they are<br />

very much a danger side. And as for that photo, Felicity: Great<br />

On other rugby matters, Waihora continues to stride forward<br />

But not so positive news on page 3. Rolleston School can’t find<br />

enough volunteers to help out at its kea crossing. The school has<br />

810 pupils, and that translates into lots of parents.<br />

Lack of volunteers<br />

may close Rolleston crossing<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

ROLLESTON SCHOOL’S kea<br />

crossing is at danger of closing<br />

down if it can’t find more<br />

volunteers.<br />

The Rolleston Drive crossing,<br />

which has been running since<br />

October 2015, helps some of the<br />

school’s 810 pupils get safely<br />

across the road.<br />

It also has a school crossing<br />

on Tennyson St which is<br />

controlled by<br />

pupils and staff<br />

in the afternoon<br />

with parent help<br />

in the mornings.<br />

District<br />

councillor<br />

Nicole Reid,<br />

Andrew<br />

Morrall<br />

who is also on<br />

the school’s<br />

board of<br />

trustees, said the Rolleston<br />

Drive crossing requires<br />

controlling by adults but it’s<br />

“hard to get volunteers.”<br />

She’s concerned it may have<br />

to close if more people don’t<br />

volunteer.<br />

Rolleston School principal<br />

Andrew Morrall agreed that<br />

HELPING OUT: Maara McLaughlin-Ioala patrolling the<br />

crossing on Rolleston Drive.<br />

without ongoing support<br />

the crossing “may have to be<br />

closed some days or possibly<br />

completely.”<br />

He said the crossing was set<br />

up in response to growing traffic<br />

volumes on Rolleston Drive and<br />

the numbers of children having<br />

2019<br />

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 2 MARCH 2019<br />

to cross there on their way to<br />

school.<br />

“Given the significant traffic<br />

numbers, and the distance from<br />

school, the board of trustees was<br />

not prepared to put children<br />

in charge of the crossing and<br />

we called for volunteers,” Mr<br />

Morrall said.<br />

He said a small team of people<br />

have been keeping the crossing<br />

open and “are doing an amazing<br />

job of helping to keep the<br />

children safe.”<br />

However, Mr Morrall said it’s<br />

a “mystery” as to why it can’t<br />

find more people to donate 20<br />

minutes of their time one day a<br />

week.<br />

“We have many families<br />

where both parents work.<br />

This may be an issue. Perhaps<br />

others believe that someone<br />

else will step up or they are not<br />

worried overly because their<br />

child doesn’t come that way to<br />

school,” he said.<br />

•To help with the Rolleston<br />

Drive crossing please phone<br />

the school office on 347<br />

8355. All volunteers will be<br />

given training.<br />

News<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

TWO SISTERS have teamed up<br />

to create a raw food company.<br />

Rosa, 22, and Margo Flanagan,<br />

19, are hosting plant-based workshops<br />

in Rolleston and around<br />

the country as well as teaching<br />

courses and catering for events.<br />

The sisters, who both grew<br />

up in Rolleston, launched the<br />

company last year but started<br />

working full-time as the Two<br />

Raw Sisters last week.<br />

The idea for the company came<br />

after they both attended the<br />

vegan culinary school, PlantLab,<br />

in Los Angeles last year.<br />

Margo said she knew she<br />

wanted to work with food after<br />

finishing high school in 2016.<br />

Rosa said before attending the<br />

culinary school they both ate<br />

meat and fish but ended up eating<br />

plant-based.<br />

“It wasn’t on purpose but we<br />

just started eating plant-based<br />

because obviously we were at the<br />

school all day and the meat was a<br />

little bit dodgy in America,” she<br />

said.<br />

However, due to deficiencies,<br />

Rosa has added meat and fish<br />

back into her diet and Margo eats<br />

fish again.<br />

“Our big thing is everyone’s<br />

bodies are different,” Rosa said.<br />

Rosa, who has just completed<br />

her degree in human nutrition, is<br />

a 3000m and 5000m steeplechase<br />

athlete.<br />

In order to execute her peak<br />

performance, Rosa had thought<br />

it was essential to lose weight.<br />

This put her body under a lot<br />

of pressure and after multiple<br />

injuries, Rosa “took a step back”<br />

to address her eating habits.<br />

“The last two to three years has<br />

been a hard time with kind of<br />

resetting my body pretty much<br />

and being patient with it but I<br />

know it’ll be worth it in the long<br />

run,” she said.<br />

Margo said the pair comple-<br />

CREATIVE:<br />

Margo, 19, and<br />

Rosa Flanagan,<br />

22, have<br />

created a raw<br />

food company. ​<br />

ment each other well, as Rosa’s<br />

a rustic person and she’s the<br />

perfectionist.<br />

“She does the salad side of<br />

things and I do the sweet side of<br />

things, so it works well,” she said.<br />

Rosa said their goal is to have<br />

their own cooking school with<br />

a workshop area so more people<br />

can come along.<br />

•From page 1<br />

The committee first<br />

complained about her<br />

performance in October.<br />

Its chairwoman Jane Huggins<br />

said the committee does not<br />

make a fuss about people<br />

missing the odd meeting.<br />

“So you can read from that,<br />

it was more than that . . . we<br />

gave her another chance but she<br />

didn’t do her job,” she said.<br />

Ms Hands said she had<br />

missed some meetings due to<br />

a lack of notifications from<br />

council and the last meeting she<br />

missed was a genuine mistake<br />

due to a change of dates.<br />

The notification issue has<br />

since been addressed with chief<br />

executive David Ward and Ms<br />

Hands will be ensuring the<br />

dates of her future meetings are<br />

in her calender.<br />

Ms Hands runs her own<br />

business as an environment<br />

consultant and works part-time<br />

at food safety and bio-security<br />

service AsureQuality in<br />

INCREASE: Retail trade in the district was up by 14 per cent in the year to<br />

March. ​<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> economy<br />

keeps growing<br />

THE DISTRICT’S economy continues<br />

to grow as activity in some traditionally<br />

strong sectors tapers off.<br />

The latest quarterly economic monitor<br />

from analysts Infometrics showed gross<br />

domestic product growth in <strong>Selwyn</strong> at<br />

4.4 per cent per annum in the year to<br />

March.<br />

This is well above average, with the<br />

Canterbury region expanding<br />

2.1 per cent in the same period,<br />

and 2.7 per cent nationally.<br />

Retail continues to grow in<br />

the district, with tourism spend<br />

one of the highlights in this<br />

quarter.<br />

Tourism-related spending<br />

increased by 17 per cent in the<br />

March year, outstripping the<br />

regional increase of 12 per cent<br />

and 9.3 per cent nationally.<br />

Retail trade activity was up by 14 per<br />

cent overall, with the Canterbury region<br />

up by 3.5 per cent.<br />

Rebuild-related projects continue to<br />

soften, as house sales have decreased by<br />

7.2 per cent compared with the previous<br />

year.<br />

Infometrics’ data shows building<br />

consents were down, with the district<br />

council issuing 202 new residential<br />

building consents in the March quarter,<br />

a decrease of 4.2 per cent annually compared<br />

with the same period a year ago.<br />

That’s consistent with district council<br />

data, which shows that in the year to<br />

May, a total of 851 building consent applications<br />

were received, compared with<br />

996 for the same time last year.<br />

However, district council building<br />

manager Vanessa Mitchell said in May<br />

the district council issued 293 building<br />

consents, up from 285 at the same time<br />

last year.<br />

“We have seen an increase in<br />

building consents issued due to<br />

increased staff numbers, meaning<br />

we’ve been able to process consents<br />

more quickly,” she said.<br />

There has also been an increase<br />

in commercial building consents,<br />

attributed to current projects such<br />

as the construction of a new primary<br />

school in Lincoln worth $6.7<br />

million.<br />

In the 12 months to June, 330 resource<br />

consents were received by the district<br />

council, compared to 297 this time last<br />

year, which is an increase of more than<br />

10 per cent.<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton said strong<br />

commercial growth means the district is<br />

heading beyond the re-build phase.<br />

“Our maturing economy is providing<br />

the commercial infrastructure that our<br />

people need, while creating job opportunities<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong> for local people,” he<br />

Four bars in Lincoln: Can they<br />

Lincoln now has four<br />

bars within a kilometre<br />

of each other with the<br />

opening of The Flaming<br />

Rabbit. Can they all<br />

survive? Reporter Emily<br />

O’Connell explores<br />

•The Flaming Rabbit<br />

Owner Paul Goodwin says<br />

Lincoln “needed the style” and<br />

that’s why he’s opened The Flaming<br />

Rabbit.<br />

The name is taken from a large<br />

scrub fire in Rolleston in the<br />

1930s, spread by nor’west winds<br />

and running rabbits. And yes,<br />

rabbit, platter style, is on the<br />

menu of the new bar, which is located<br />

in the commercial area on<br />

Vernon Dr, opposite New World.<br />

Mr Goodwin, who owns the<br />

bar with his wife Tessa, is also<br />

mine host of the Merrin Street<br />

Brewery Bar in Avonhead.<br />

The bar is already getting<br />

involved in the community. Mr<br />

Goodwin said it helps with the<br />

junior section of Springston<br />

rugby and as the business grows,<br />

they “will get involved with other<br />

things”.<br />

The bar is managed by Byron<br />

Mann who says there is enough<br />

business for four bars in Lincoln.<br />

NEW: The Flaming Rabbit manager Byron Mann at the recently opened bar and restaurant.<br />

PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

“Everyone’s got their own<br />

personality in what they do,” he<br />

says.<br />

But if you think the competition<br />

will lead to a price war on<br />

drinks and food, don’t hold your<br />

breath.<br />

He said at this stage they’re not<br />

looking at doing loyalty cards<br />

but instead they will look after<br />

their regular customers through<br />

shouting them a wine or nibbles.<br />

•The Famous Grouse<br />

Hotel<br />

The Grouse is housed in Lincoln’s<br />

biggest building on Gerald<br />

St. It anchors the commercial area.<br />

It was rebuilt after the original<br />

125-year-old building was badly<br />

damaged in the September 4,<br />

2010, earthquake.<br />

The hotel is owned by the Lincoln<br />

Club, formed in 1969 as the<br />

Ellesmere Country Club.<br />

The club has 560 members<br />

who enjoy cheaper drinks prices<br />

than non-members and other<br />

benefits. The club is always on<br />

the lookout for new members.<br />

Manager Will Stock also says<br />

there is enough room for all in<br />

the town.<br />

“Lincoln is growing and it’s<br />

great to see the hospitality offering<br />

is growing with it,” he said.<br />

Lincoln’s population is expected<br />

to grow from 6500 to<br />

9400 in 2025.<br />

Mr Stock said the bars are different,<br />

which is great for Lincoln.<br />

The Grouse is a big sponsor of<br />

community and sports groups.<br />

But competition for customers<br />

is just not at the bar. All four<br />

bars have restaurants and that is<br />

leading to changes in menus and<br />

the way things are done to get<br />

the hospitality dollar.<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

The Grouse also has<br />

accommodation, with nine<br />

rooms upstairs.<br />

•The Laboratory<br />

Owner Martin Bennett<br />

said the The Laboratory has a<br />

number of points of differences<br />

including its drink, food and<br />

“the place itself.”<br />

Mr Bennett said it has 10 beers<br />

on tap which are brewed on-site.<br />

The most popular is Isotopic<br />

Pale Ale.<br />

Another point of difference is<br />

The Laboratory has no television<br />

screens.<br />

That because it’s a place where<br />

you can get away from rugby<br />

and other sports matches, he<br />

says.<br />

The Lab is not a place for first<br />

year university students. Instead<br />

it’s the post-graduate, foreign<br />

students and professors who<br />

frequent it, said Mr Bennett.<br />

He said it’s too early to<br />

tell whether the increase<br />

in hospitality will lead to a<br />

reduction in trade. “I’d like to<br />

think that Lincoln’s big enough<br />

but time will tell. I’d like to<br />

think that perhaps with more<br />

places in Lincoln, people will<br />

go out more or go out to town<br />

less and therefore we can all<br />

survive,” he said.<br />

Mr Bennett said The Flaming<br />

Rabbit is not a competitor<br />

as they both have “different<br />

offerings.”<br />

AN AMOUNT of $180,000 has<br />

Schools need to sort car park issues<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

SCHOOLS ACROSS <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

have been told they have to sort<br />

out their own car parking issues.<br />

The decision was agreed on at<br />

a Malvern Community Board<br />

meeting.<br />

It comes after<br />

Greendale<br />

School teacher<br />

aide Jan<br />

Douglas wrote<br />

a letter to the<br />

board saying it<br />

was “unacceptable”<br />

there<br />

John Morten<br />

are six spaces<br />

for vehicles at<br />

the school with up to 13 staff.<br />

But it was decided school<br />

board of trustees were “best<br />

placed” to take the lead in ensuring<br />

sufficient car parking around<br />

the schools.<br />

Greendale School principal<br />

Carey-Anne Hamilton said the<br />

school did not wish to comment<br />

on the issue as they were dealing<br />

with it themselves.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> previously<br />

reported Glentunnel School and<br />

Hororata Primary School had<br />

been having car parking issues.<br />

Glentunnel School principal<br />

Dion Stechmann said the<br />

school previously went through<br />

PROBLEMS: The Malvern Community Board has decided it is up to school board of trustees to<br />

solve car parking issues outside schools across the district. Greendale School staff have to park<br />

on the grass verges due to a lack of car parking.<br />

a process with the New Zealand<br />

Transport Agency to make its car<br />

parking outside the school safer.<br />

He said all car parking outside<br />

the school was designed in a way<br />

which meant cars had to back<br />

out onto Homebush Rd.<br />

The school was hoping to<br />

remove the grass verge at its<br />

entrance to allow for more carparking.<br />

But a NZTA spokeswoman<br />

said it has a number of projects<br />

which have a high safety priority<br />

because of a history of crashes,<br />

and this project was not deemed<br />

to have the same priority.<br />

Mr Stechmann said the school<br />

was a “bit gutted” because it has<br />

been left to its board of trustees<br />

to do something and it does not<br />

have the funding.<br />

Hororata Primary School’s<br />

principal Martyn Gameson did<br />

not comment.<br />

He made a submission to the<br />

district council’s Long Term Plan<br />

asking for funding to solve ongoing<br />

concerns with the condition<br />

of the Bealey Rd frontage outside<br />

the school.<br />

The district council’s transportation<br />

asset engineer Mark<br />

Chamberlain said no funds have<br />

been set aside to upgrade the<br />

school frontage.<br />

But it has agreed to fix any<br />

issues relating to previous works<br />

it undertook when completing a<br />

reseal on Bealey Rd in 2016.<br />

District councillor John<br />

Morten said the district council<br />

has a policy where it doesn’t do<br />

car parking for the schools.<br />

He said the Ministry of Education<br />

should cover parking for the<br />

education facility.<br />

Cr Morten said while has<br />

sympathy for the schools in<br />

need of additional car parking,<br />

the district council has limited<br />

resources and no other business<br />

can get a resource consent without<br />

providing car parking.<br />

In Brief<br />

DISTRICT PLAN REVIEW<br />

Initial consultation on key draft<br />

changes relevant to rural, business,<br />

residential and districtwide<br />

audiences in the district<br />

plan is expected to start next<br />

month. The consultation will<br />

go for eight weeks. It’s expected<br />

formal consultation on the<br />

proposed district plan will begin<br />

in March 2020, with new plan<br />

becoming operative in March<br />

2022.<br />

Eighteen months of doing things a little<br />

Rolleston College has<br />

grown to around 440<br />

pupils since it opened<br />

18 months ago. Stacey<br />

Bryan reports<br />

ROLLESTON COLLEGE<br />

principal Steve Saville said his<br />

biggest achievement in the past<br />

18 months has “becoming a fully<br />

functioning school.”<br />

“All the things you would expect<br />

a normal school, that’s been<br />

functioning for a long while to<br />

have, we’ve managed to achieve,”<br />

Mr Saville<br />

said.<br />

In addition,<br />

the students<br />

have had opportunities<br />

that would be<br />

rare in many<br />

Steve Saville<br />

schools, like<br />

building a recycled,<br />

sustainable<br />

garden.<br />

Said Mr Saville: “They had<br />

to do all the design, put all the<br />

plans through council, meet<br />

with council to get planning<br />

permission, do all the measuring<br />

for it, figure out where the pipes<br />

were and all that stuff, get all the<br />

recycled material . . . they had to<br />

build it all.”<br />

example of the flexible learning<br />

model on the college is based.<br />

Lessons are taught with an<br />

authentic context by showing<br />

the students how the curriculum<br />

applies to real life. Students<br />

have three 100min classes each<br />

day, which are personalised,<br />

specialised and integrated.<br />

Personalised classes give<br />

the students time to pursue<br />

their own interests, specialised<br />

classes are similar to optional,<br />

non-compulsory subjects in<br />

a traditional learning style,<br />

and integrated classes cover<br />

the basics like literacy and<br />

numeracy.<br />

The building reflects this flexibility,<br />

with open spaces to teach<br />

in and small rooms with moveable<br />

walls for group projects.<br />

But Mr Saville said that people<br />

tend to think the school is more<br />

“different” than it actually is.<br />

“We have a flexible learning<br />

space, it’s not open.<br />

“All that means is that at times<br />

it’s very traditional lessons.<br />

Teacher at the front of a space<br />

delivering a lesson. But it means<br />

if we want to have group work, if<br />

students need a different space to<br />

do something . . . then it’s easier<br />

to have that flexibility in a design<br />

like this than a four-walled<br />

room.”<br />

Connected team senior<br />

leader Rachel Skelton came<br />

from teaching in a traditional<br />

learning environment and<br />

said the new system makes her<br />

a better teacher. Having the<br />

teachers working in teams meant<br />

that when a year 10 class were<br />

learning about the big bang<br />

theory in science, Mrs Skelton<br />

could collaborate and use it for<br />

their creative writing topic too.<br />

“It was some of the best<br />

creative writing I’ve ever seen<br />

from year 10 kids and I just<br />

thought, for me, working here<br />

allowed that to happen,” she<br />

said.<br />

Looking towards the future,<br />

Mr Saville said he is excited<br />

about bringing NCEA to the<br />

school next year and having<br />

senior students.<br />

“Excited and nervous, of<br />

course,” he said.<br />

ROLLESTON COLLEGE<br />

year 10 student Hamish<br />

Heney began his education<br />

in a school based on a<br />

traditional learning model.<br />

Three years in and he<br />

was diagnosed with dyslexia,<br />

something his mother,<br />

Rebecca Heney, did not feel<br />

the traditional school was<br />

prepared for.<br />

Mrs Heney said they<br />

decided to move towards<br />

a “more open learning<br />

environment to give him a<br />

bit more adaptability.”<br />

Hamish said as soon as<br />

he switched to the flexible<br />

learning model he felt like<br />

he “was actually learning<br />

something.”<br />

If the students at Rolleston<br />

College do not understand<br />

a lesson taught one<br />

way, the teachers switch to<br />

another method.<br />

“They try to make it as<br />

fun as possible for us,”<br />

Hamish said.<br />

Mrs Heney said it appears<br />

the staff are teaching<br />

the students without them<br />

realising they are learning.<br />

She said the students she<br />

had heard of struggling<br />

with the flexible learning<br />

system had come from traditional<br />

primary schools.<br />

“These kids are being<br />

asked to think for themselves<br />

a bit more than what<br />

we used to be allowed to in<br />

school,” Mrs Heney said.<br />

Council<br />

website<br />

upgraded<br />

THE DISTRICT council has<br />

launched a new-look upgraded<br />

website to make it easier for<br />

residents to find information<br />

online.<br />

The upgraded site includes<br />

much-improved search capability,<br />

a fresh, clean design and a<br />

new layout that helps guide users<br />

to the pages they want.<br />

The change marks the first<br />

time in many years that the website<br />

has been refreshed.<br />

“Our old website had been in<br />

the same format for around 10<br />

years – with just a partial redesign<br />

about five years ago,”said<br />

business relationship manager<br />

Stephen Hill.<br />

“Although the site was working<br />

okay, users were telling us it<br />

was often hard to navigate and<br />

to find the services they wanted.<br />

“We also knew from research<br />

that residents were looking for<br />

more functions and information<br />

to be available online.<br />

Mr Hill says the district council<br />

understands that it may take<br />

a little time for some users to get<br />

used to the new layout and advises<br />

residents to get in contact if<br />

they are having issues.<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

SELWYN RESIDENTS with<br />

a passion for theatre are being<br />

called upon to take part in<br />

what will be one of the district’s<br />

largest musicals.<br />

Newly-formed theatre company<br />

CentreStage Rolleston is<br />

inviting as many people as possible<br />

to go and audition for its<br />

first production Joseph and the<br />

Amazing Technicolor<br />

Dreamcoat.<br />

The show is a musical with<br />

lyrics by Tim Rice and music by<br />

Andrew Lloyd Webber.<br />

It is based on the “coat of<br />

many colours” story of Joseph<br />

from the Bible’s Book of Genesis.<br />

The company wants to meet as<br />

many people as possible and see<br />

what talent the area has to offer.<br />

CentreStage Rolleston president<br />

and director Phil Dean said<br />

it wanted its first show to appeal<br />

to a wide audience and it was<br />

nice to present the show in the<br />

community in its 50th anniversary<br />

year.<br />

Mr Dean said CentreStage<br />

Rolleston was set up earlier this<br />

year as result of a “big hunger<br />

for performing arts” in the<br />

township.<br />

He recently made a<br />

submission at the district<br />

council’s Long Term Plan <strong>2018</strong>-<br />

2028, calling for a rehearsal<br />

spaces and a performance<br />

space of holding 500 patrons in<br />

Rolleston.<br />

A smaller 200-seated theatre<br />

available to community groups<br />

was also asked for.<br />

Mr Dean asked for<br />

consideration to be given to<br />

including a performing and<br />

rehearsal space in the recently<br />

approved indoor sports facility<br />

to be built at Foster Park.<br />

The district council’s property<br />

and commercial manager<br />

Douglas Marshall said there is<br />

no consideration the facility will<br />

have a theatre-style performing<br />

arts space.<br />

He said the new Rolleston<br />

Library and Community<br />

Centre will include a space for<br />

the performing arts, but those<br />

spaces will not have any theatre<br />

Thank you for<br />

helping your<br />

Fall Zones<br />

community<br />

To all of you who have had your<br />

trees trimmed before they became<br />

a problem, thank you for keeping all<br />

the families in your community warm,<br />

happy, healthy and connected.<br />

You can be proud of the fact that you have allowed your<br />

neighbours to stay warm, cook dinner and even charge<br />

their mobile phones. You may not have realised that what<br />

you’ve done has had much impact, but from all of us here<br />

at Orion, we just want to say thank you.<br />

Notice and Growth limit zones<br />

Power line voltage A. Growth limit zone B. Notice zone<br />

11,000 volts 1.6m 2.6m<br />

400/230 volts 0.5m 1.5m<br />

We’re not exaggerating.<br />

On our network, 10-20% of all unplanned power outages are<br />

caused by trees — including vegetation — coming into contact<br />

with power lines. Other than this, fire damage to property from<br />

branches sparking in dry conditions and serious injury from<br />

electrocution from contact with trees touching power lines are<br />

also possible consequences of not maintaining your trees.<br />

How close is too close?<br />

While most damage is caused by trees falling on power lines,<br />

significant risk exists from trees merely touching them. This risk<br />

increases the higher the voltage of the power line.<br />

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees<br />

and power lines, as defined in the Electricity (Hazards from<br />

Trees) Regulations 2003, are outlined in the diagrams above.<br />

All vegetation should be kept out of the growth limit zone and<br />

preferably the notice zone.<br />

Sometimes it may not be practical to have a tree trimmed at the<br />

rate at which it grows and unfortunately, this means it may need<br />

to be removed. Other situations may require trees to be removed,<br />

most commonly when they are at a high risk of falling due to<br />

disease or adverse weather events.<br />

Where do I start?<br />

Before you begin, remember to keep yourself, and those around<br />

you, safe. We recognise that not everyone is experienced in tree<br />

trimming and are happy to advise you on what to do. We can arrange<br />

for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your expense, however<br />

we recommend you hire professionals to safely carry out the work.<br />

If you or someone working for you intends to work within four<br />

metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from<br />

Orion before you start. As a tree owner, you may be liable for any<br />

damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.<br />

Will I be fined if I don’t comply?<br />

If a cut or trim notice is given to you and you fail to have the tree<br />

trimmed and/or advise us of the time and location of the trim<br />

without a reasonable excuse, this is an offence. This will make you<br />

liable for a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues,<br />

you will be liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every<br />

day or part day during which the offence continues.<br />

More info can be found on our website and if<br />

you have any questions or notice any trees<br />

touching power lines in your area, please call<br />

us on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.<br />

Templeton quarry battle: Bring it on<br />

Templeton Residents<br />

Association<br />

chairman<br />

Garry Kilday<br />

reacts to the<br />

results of the<br />

Yaldhurst<br />

monitoring<br />

programme.<br />

THE RESIDENTS of Templeton<br />

will have heard or read about<br />

the outcome of Environment<br />

Canterbury’s dust monitoring<br />

programme and will be feeling<br />

some concern.<br />

While this outcome is a travesty<br />

for the people of Yaldhurst being<br />

hurt by these ruthless corporates,<br />

the outcome itself came as no<br />

surprise to the no quarry subcommittee.<br />

We had anticipated this event<br />

and it does not change our submission<br />

process whatsoever, in<br />

actual fact we believe it may help.<br />

I believe that the dust monitors<br />

were not reliable, hence the<br />

results from them can not be<br />

relied upon.<br />

Ownership of the monitors<br />

themselves seems to be a grey area.<br />

Some believe they are paid<br />

for by the quarry companies,<br />

so if this is the case they would<br />

have first dibs at the so called<br />

“raw data” which ECan has been<br />

talking about for some time, and<br />

PROBLEMATIC: Dust at Winstone Aggregates quarry in Yaldhurst.<br />

all evidence from that point on<br />

would be compromised.<br />

If this is the case, the Canterbury<br />

District Health Board<br />

and ECan are acting on flawed<br />

information.<br />

And of course with the wettest<br />

four months for years in<br />

Canterbury, getting any reading<br />

is amazing. What will it be like<br />

in mid-summer in a north-west<br />

gale? Due to some inaccuracies/<br />

major concerns reported by the<br />

Yaldhurst group we will be writing<br />

to ECan strategy and planning<br />

director Katherine Trought,<br />

to take up her offer of organising<br />

a meeting with the chief medical<br />

officer Alistair Humphrey and<br />

ECan to discuss the results.<br />

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

The admission by a representative<br />

of ECan that their inability to<br />

monitor compliance at the first<br />

and second community meeting<br />

was confirmed at a recent meeting<br />

with Ms Trought and ECan<br />

chairman, Steve Lowndes. They<br />

went as far as to say it is about<br />

three years behind around all<br />

compliance issues.<br />

In addition to meeting with<br />

ECan, we have also met with<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council regarding<br />

its Long Term Plan quarry<br />

regulatory requirement.<br />

This was also extremely helpful<br />

and has clarified a few more<br />

points.<br />

It is my belief that Fulton<br />

Hogan may now put in its application<br />

early to try and catch<br />

us unaware, so for those who are<br />

planning on putting in a submission,<br />

please be ready.<br />

The no quarry sub-committee<br />

will not be changing anything in<br />

our submission so with that in<br />

mind, bring it on.<br />

We will be re-extending an<br />

invitation to Fulton Hogan to<br />

attend a community meeting,<br />

which it declined to attend earlier<br />

in the year.<br />

We believe that this is vital to<br />

successful and transparent community<br />

engagement.<br />

We will advise you of the outcome.<br />

NEW: Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall and Prebbleton<br />

community association committee chairman Peter<br />

Hunter with a new radar speed sign which has been<br />

installed to help slow traffic in the area. ​<br />

Mike Green responds to an<br />

article about the Prebbleton<br />

community association<br />

committee buying a radar<br />

speed sign for Springs Rd<br />

Mike Green – Have just<br />

read the article in the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

<strong>Times</strong> regarding speed<br />

signs. Unfortunately I have<br />

experienced their ineffectiveness<br />

around <strong>Selwyn</strong>, namely Brookside<br />

Rd and Dunns Crossing Rd near<br />

the new school. Many times I have<br />

witnessed cars approaching these<br />

signs in excess of the 50km/h to<br />

be flashed at with the sign saying<br />

‘slow down’. At least eight out of 10<br />

cars take no notice whatsoever. The<br />

sign keeps flashing as these cars<br />

approach with no slowing until they<br />

pass the sign and the process starts<br />

all over again when the next car<br />

approaches.<br />

Being long straight roads the<br />

signs pick up motorists at a good<br />

distance, but in spite of the slow<br />

down flashing it is obvious that<br />

many motorists couldn’t give a<br />

damn. Now if they thought that a<br />

camera would catch them along<br />

with a fine, then they might slow<br />

down, but unfortunately too many<br />

motorists know that won’t happen<br />

and are happy to break the speed<br />

limit. Until motorists can see a<br />

financial deterrent, such as a fine<br />

and points, then these signs are<br />

not going to slow them down. They<br />

will remain anti-social. Happy to<br />

be proved wrong but I’ve seen it too<br />

many times.<br />

District council<br />

environmental services<br />

manager Tim Harris responds<br />

to an article about the<br />

Templeton Quarry<br />

The article ‘Quarry, properties<br />

space bid’ (June 20, <strong>2018</strong>) is<br />

factually incorrect on a significant<br />

element. The story asserts that “the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> District Plan committee has<br />

decided to include setbacks in the<br />

District Plan but it will not specify<br />

how far away a quarry must be from<br />

a property”.<br />

This is not the case. The<br />

committee has in fact requested<br />

only that setbacks be included as<br />

a possible option in forthcoming<br />

consultation with stakeholders and<br />

the wider community. No decision<br />

has been made on whether setbacks<br />

will be included in the final District<br />

Plan. The process of reviewing the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> District Plan is currently<br />

at the stage of preparing preferred<br />

option reports on a variety of<br />

topics, including quarrying. Initial<br />

public consultation on these<br />

topics will be carried out in the<br />

second half this year, and further<br />

consultation will take place when<br />

the proposed District Plan is<br />

formally notified, expected to be in<br />

early 2020.<br />

Readers respond to an<br />

article about the district<br />

council likely to review<br />

funding for a cycleway/<br />

walkway between Glentunnel<br />

and Whitecliffs<br />

Rosalie Snoyink – Bringing<br />

forward the Whitecliffs to<br />

Glentunnel shared cycle/walkway<br />

into the district council’s 2020/21<br />

budget is a welcome idea. It will<br />

link up the existing, popular<br />

Coalgate to Glentunnel cycle/<br />

walkway.<br />

I’m amazed at the pedestrian and<br />

cycling traffic using the Coalgate<br />

to Glentunnel facility since its<br />

completion.<br />

As a more “senior” cyclist, I often<br />

bike from Glentunnel to Coalgate,<br />

and now look forward to biking to<br />

Whitecliffs on a similar, safe, scenic<br />

cycleway.<br />

Laura Williams – I’m thrilled<br />

that the Glentunnel/Whitecliffs<br />

route is getting more attention.<br />

It’s a really dangerous stretch and<br />

I’ve seen a lot of near misses so I’m<br />

uncomfortable biking or walking<br />

there to visit friends.<br />

I hate to think of kids making<br />

their way to school around those<br />

blind corners. It’s a massive safety<br />

hazard so should definitely take<br />

precedence.<br />

John Geary reacts to the<br />

district council’s decision to<br />

support an online voting trial<br />

in principle<br />

John Geary – Just a thought –<br />

after the census problems with<br />

our elderly folk not always computer<br />

literate, why not post out postal<br />

forms to all voters over 65, giving<br />

them the option?<br />

coast. He bought the land after discovering, during the course of<br />

a six year global odyssey, that his juices liked being near the sea<br />

and were most stimulated by his home region’s crazy weather<br />

patterns.<br />

“The sudden shifts of life’s flow passing through and around us;<br />

culturally, meteorologically, personally, always have the power<br />

to surprise.<br />

You’re an island nation of pristine waters and clamorous birdcall<br />

when a sail broaches the horizon…<br />

You glance up from an endless summer to find a rampaging<br />

southerly bearing down on you. …A young family-man, raising a<br />

home on a rural headland, a moment’s distraction and suddenly<br />

you’re an old, bald bloke rummaging for the car keys and your<br />

friend’s name…” Ashley Smith<br />

Ashley Smith hopes these paintings, from a milestone period of<br />

his life will, like life’s gearshifts, have the power to surprise.”<br />

Community centre ‘exciting news’<br />

Bill Woods responds to a<br />

district council decision<br />

on hall rates<br />

Just to let you know that I<br />

am really annoyed about the<br />

district council proceeding<br />

with its proposal to place a<br />

standard rate on all halls and<br />

reserves. The council claims<br />

this rate is more equitable<br />

but if you have a look at<br />

the figures, it only benefits<br />

the towns that have large<br />

payments on their halls.<br />

Those towns had a ballot to<br />

proceed with their hall and<br />

now they want the rest of the<br />

district to pay for their selfimposed<br />

debts.<br />

The proposal is not fair on<br />

the towns that have paid for<br />

their halls in the past and the<br />

committees which run them<br />

work hard to keep the rates for<br />

their hall as low as possible.<br />

I have canvassed only a couple<br />

of people but so far there is<br />

real opposition to the rate.<br />

executive<br />

officer Cindy<br />

Driscoll<br />

talks about<br />

what’s going<br />

on in the<br />

community<br />

RECENTLY WE heard the<br />

exciting news that the new<br />

Hororata Community Centre to<br />

be built on the Hororata Domain<br />

has been included in the district<br />

council’s Long Term Plan.<br />

This project is the result of a<br />

collaborative effort between the<br />

Hororata Community Trust and<br />

Go Hororata, a collective group<br />

of community organisations<br />

which have worked together to<br />

develop the community centre<br />

concept and present it to the<br />

district council.<br />

The Hororata Domain is a<br />

wonderful venue for all sorts of<br />

activities and annual events run<br />

by different community groups,<br />

including the Hororata Pig and<br />

Possum Hunt, Hororata Swap<br />

Meet, Hororata Parish Spring<br />

Fair and the Hororata Highland<br />

Games.<br />

These events, along with others<br />

held throughout our district, are<br />

part of the fabric of the community<br />

and make the area a great<br />

place to live and visit. The new<br />

community centre will enhance<br />

existing events and provide more<br />

opportunities for different activities,<br />

as well as a facility to enable<br />

our communities to congregate.<br />

This year’s Hororata Night<br />

Glow, staged by the Hororata<br />

Community Trust, proved yet<br />

again what our communities can<br />

achieve.<br />

One of the main aims of the<br />

night glow was to establish the<br />

festival as a major contributor<br />

to the fundraising for the new<br />

Hororata Community Centre.<br />

The Hororata Community<br />

Trust feels this aim has been<br />

achieved and is looking to grow<br />

the event in the future.<br />

Now the community centre is<br />

The Hororata Community<br />

helping bring this project to fruition.<br />

It’s an exciting time for our<br />

Tai Tapu Community Centre<br />

now open<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Awards seeks people’s<br />

vote for new prize<br />

Voting is now open for the new People’s Choice Award as part of<br />

this year’s <strong>Selwyn</strong> Awards.<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> Awards are held every two years, and seek to recognise<br />

individuals and organisations for outstanding work or inspirational<br />

achievements.<br />

All nominees in all categories of the <strong>2018</strong> awards are eligible for<br />

the People’s Choice Award which will be decided entirely by online<br />

public vote.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Mayor Sam Broughton says this is an opportunity for the<br />

community to get even more involved in the awards.<br />

“This is the first time in the history of the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Awards that this<br />

option has been included,” he says.<br />

“I’m excited that the public has the opportunity to have their say on<br />

who they think is deserving in our community.”<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> Awards will be recognised at a Gala Dinner at the<br />

Lincoln Event Centre on Saturday 4 August <strong>2018</strong>, where all<br />

nominees will be celebrated and the winners in each of the 10<br />

categories, including People’s Choice, will be announced.<br />

Every person who votes goes into the draw to win two tickets to the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Awards <strong>2018</strong> Gala Dinner.<br />

Voting closes on Saturday 28 <strong>July</strong>.<br />

Votes are limited to one per person (multiple votes by one person<br />

will be removed).<br />

See www.selwynawards.co.nz for more information and the online<br />

voting form.<br />

The construction of the new Tai Tapu Community Centre has been completed and the facility is<br />

ready for community use.<br />

The $4.6m (projected total) facility, located at Rhodes Park, is a community-driven initiative which<br />

replaces two earthquake damaged and outdated halls in the township.<br />

The community centre is now accepting bookings from anyone who wishes to use the facility,<br />

however exterior work including landscaping will be completed over the next few months, as<br />

some of the work can’t be completed during winter.<br />

An official opening ceremony is planned for mid-August, so that everyone who was involved in the<br />

planning and construction of the new community centre can be present.<br />

Council Major Projects Manager, John Reid, says it’s exciting to see the new facility operational<br />

and hopes the community will start using it straight away.<br />

“The new Tai Tapu Community Centre is a brilliant community asset and it’s ready for everyone to<br />

enjoy. This facility is a very good example of a community-driven project with the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

Council providing guidance and support.<br />

The new facility features three community rooms with a total capacity in excess of 500 people –<br />

each room has access to kitchen and bar facilities. It also has changing rooms, public toilets, and<br />

a large roofed outdoor courtyard.<br />

The first major public event held at the new Tai Tapu Community Centre was the Waihora Rugby<br />

Club’s club day which was held over the weekend.<br />

Fresh look for Council website<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council has launched a new look, upgraded website<br />

to make it easier for residents to find information and do business<br />

with the Council.<br />

The upgraded site includes much-improved search capability,<br />

mobile responsiveness, a fresh, clean design and a new layout that<br />

helps guide users to the pages they want.<br />

The change marks the first time in many years that the website has<br />

been refreshed. “Our old website had been in the same format for<br />

around 10 years – with just a partial redesign about five years ago,”<br />

says Council’s Business Relationship Manager Stephen Hill.<br />

Although the site was working okay, users were telling Council it<br />

was a bit clunky.<br />

The home page is now much more informative and engaging, with<br />

clear links to our most popular pages and services, plus news and<br />

events sections, and links to our current consultations and to other<br />

council sites.<br />

We know there will be some things we still need to work on, and if<br />

people do find issues that need attention, they can drop us a line<br />

through the contact page. We hope people enjoy using the new site.<br />

Backyard Critters<br />

News<br />

Native beetle mania<br />

Mike<br />

Bowie is an<br />

ecologist who<br />

specialises in<br />

entomology<br />

(insects<br />

and other<br />

invertebrates).<br />

Each week he introduces<br />

a new species found in his<br />

backyard at Lincoln. His<br />

column aims to raise public<br />

awareness of biodiversity,<br />

the variety of living things<br />

around us. Check out the full<br />

list of invertebrates found<br />

at http://naturewatch.org.<br />

nz/projects/backyardbiodiversity-bugs-in-lincoln<br />

THERE ARE approximately<br />

140 species of chafer or scarab<br />

beetles in New Zealand.<br />

These beetles have larvae that<br />

feed in the soil on roots and, as<br />

adults, they feed on the foliage<br />

of many plant species.<br />

The most well known scarab<br />

in New Zealand is the native<br />

grass grub beetle, costelytra<br />

zealandica, present in most<br />

pastures, gardens or lawns.<br />

The larvae of these beetles<br />

live in the soil and are<br />

characteristically C-shaped,<br />

creamy-whitish grubs with<br />

three pairs of slender legs and a<br />

SCARAB: The native grass grub beetle, costelytra zealandica,<br />

is present in most pastures, gardens or lawns.<br />

darker head.<br />

Odontria species are chafers,<br />

larger in size with fuzzy/velvety<br />

appearance, while costelytra<br />

species are smoother and more<br />

shiny.<br />

Adults often fly at dusk about<br />

30min after sunset for about<br />

30min and are attracted to<br />

lights. They usually land on<br />

trees or shrubs where they<br />

forage on leaves and mate<br />

before laying eggs in the soil<br />

where the larvae spend their life<br />

before pupating near the soil<br />

surface.<br />

Book features<br />

links to Leeston<br />

Leeston’s Beth Prestage (above) was at the launch of Local<br />

Lives: A History of Addington for a very special reason on<br />

Wednesday night. Her grandfather William Hearfield and<br />

his family feature on the front cover of the book outside his<br />

home circa 1903. The book, by John Wilson (above) tells<br />

the story of the suburb from its working class beginnings in<br />

the 1860s through to the impact of the September 4, 2010,<br />

and February 22, 2011, earthquakes. The book costs $50<br />

and can be ordered through the Addington Neighbourhood<br />

Even contest at top of netball table<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

GREENPARK A and Lincoln<br />

gifted top spot in the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

premier netball competition<br />

to Broadfield after the two<br />

teams played out a 61-61 draw<br />

at Lincoln Event Centre on<br />

Saturday.<br />

The intrigue continues during<br />

the second round of the competition,<br />

with the top three teams<br />

seemingly even.<br />

Broadfield’s comfortable 72-<br />

41 win over Greenpark B saw<br />

them go to the top of the table<br />

with three wins and a draw.<br />

Greenpark A and Lincoln<br />

both have two wins and two<br />

draws from their four games to<br />

sit in second equal.<br />

Southbridge A ousted their<br />

clubmates Southbridge B 45-40<br />

to move off the bottom of the<br />

table.<br />

Lincoln coach Vanessa<br />

Robinson said while they had<br />

their chance to win the game,<br />

with a one goal lead in the final<br />

minute, she was pleased with<br />

the overall effort.<br />

“The girls really wanted it in<br />

that final quarter and maybe we<br />

would have had it if we’d kept a<br />

bit more composure, but I can’t<br />

fault the effort,” she said.<br />

Lincoln ran out to an early<br />

six goal advantage in the first<br />

quarter but trailed by the same<br />

margin in the third quarter.<br />

“In the first round we lost to<br />

both of these teams and now, in<br />

round two, we have drawn with<br />

both of them so our results are<br />

tracking in the right direction.”<br />

Robinson praised the work of<br />

mid-courter Char Porima after<br />

she moved in to centre to help<br />

steady the side, both on attack<br />

and defence.<br />

Broadfield is set to face a<br />

sterner test this Saturday when<br />

they face Greenpark A in the<br />

battle for top position.<br />

Lincoln will play Southbridge<br />

B and Greenpark B will play<br />

Southbridge A.<br />

Results – Southbridge A 45,<br />

Southbridge B 40; Greenpark A<br />

61, Lincoln A 61; Broadfield A<br />

72, Greenpark B 41.<br />

Points – Broadfield A 14,<br />

Another tight win for Lincoln Combined<br />

SPORTS<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

LINCOLN Combined’s habit of<br />

winning close games continued<br />

on Saturday when they beat<br />

St Andrew’s College 19-15 at<br />

Lincoln High.<br />

Two second half tries to captain<br />

Wil Gualter helped Lincoln<br />

Combined consolidate third on<br />

the UC Championship table and<br />

get the team their fifth straight<br />

win.<br />

It is their fourth win under<br />

four points this season. Lincoln<br />

Combined have seven wins from<br />

nine game and have 32 points.<br />

They are two points ahead of<br />

fourth-placed St Bede’s College<br />

and five points ahead of St Andrew’s<br />

in fifth.<br />

Lincoln Combined coach Mike<br />

Wilson said his team made their<br />

best start to a game this season,<br />

but after trailing 12-7 at halftime,<br />

it was the class of Gualter<br />

and some stern defence which<br />

got them home.<br />

“That’s the thing that’s impressed<br />

me the most this year,<br />

the way we just stick to our task,”<br />

he said. “Tactically, I thought<br />

we were very good early on, our<br />

option taking and kicking game<br />

really impressed me.”<br />

It was a strong tackle on the<br />

goal line from replacement back<br />

Cole Spinks which preserved the<br />

lead late in the piece. St Andrew’s<br />

had a superior maul all game but<br />

with back-to-back penalties, they<br />

chose to scrum as opposed to use<br />

their lineout drive.<br />

TRY TIME: Lincoln Combined<br />

their 19-15 UC Championship<br />

rugby win at Lincoln High<br />

School. PHOTO: FELICITY<br />

PLUCK<br />

“That sort of win against a<br />

good rugby school really means<br />

a lot to our boys,” Wilson said. “I<br />

think the boys are really thriving<br />

on working hard to win their<br />

games.<br />

“They’re working hard for each<br />

other and it’s creating a good<br />

atmosphere at trainings.”<br />

Wilson said he was impressed<br />

with the locking combination<br />

of Sean Lemon and Sam Scott,<br />

as well as the defensive efforts of<br />

Josh Brown at centre.<br />

Lincoln’s will play Waimea<br />

Combined at home on Saturday<br />

in a game they will be favoured<br />

to win against the 12th-placed<br />

team in the competition.<br />

Waihora keep perfect record in Ellesmere competition<br />

UNBEATEN WAIHORA did<br />

enough to outlast Springston<br />

23-17 on their club day at Tai Tapu<br />

on Saturday,<br />

The six-point win maintains<br />

Waihora’s perfect record in the<br />

Ellesmere senior rugby competition<br />

after six rounds.<br />

The result leaves Springston, which<br />

earned a surprise but deserved semifinal<br />

spot in the combined country<br />

competition, languishing in seventh<br />

– five points outside the top four.<br />

Darfield dented Lincoln’s top four<br />

chances while underlining their<br />

title credentials with a 36-17 away<br />

victory.<br />

The result sets up an intriguing<br />

match-up on Saturday when Lincoln<br />

travels to Springston with both<br />

teams desperate to re-ignite their top<br />

four chances.<br />

Southbridge maintained their grip<br />

on third spot but were made to work<br />

a lot harder than many predicted to<br />

beat cellar-dwellers Hornby 21-14 at<br />

home in their Murray Cooper Shield<br />

match. Fourth-placed Prebbleton<br />

were the big losers in round six after<br />

being hammered 41-14 by BDI.<br />

BDI have been more competitive<br />

in the early stages of the Ellesmere<br />

competition than they were in the<br />

combined country competition, and<br />

have moved up to sixth, just three<br />

points outside the top four.<br />

Rolleston moved themselves away<br />

from the wooden spoon with a 19-10<br />

away victory over West Melton.<br />

On Saturday Hornby try to slay<br />

Goliath when they host Waihora<br />

at Denton Park, Rolleston will host<br />

Southbridge, BDI travel to take on<br />

Darfield and Prebbleton host West<br />

Melton at Prebbleton Oval.<br />

Big future expected<br />

Proud supporters of<br />

Rugby & Netball in <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

for promising Lincoln University first-five<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

RAMEKA POIHIPI became the<br />

latest Lincoln University player<br />

to turn out for the Crusaders<br />

after a surprise call-up to play<br />

the French Barbarians.<br />

Poihipi, 19, moved south to<br />

Christchurch last year after<br />

standout seasons playing at firstfive<br />

for Hamilton Boys’ High<br />

School in 2015 and 2016 which<br />

saw him heralded as one of the<br />

most promising players coming<br />

out of secondary school.<br />

“A big part of the decision was<br />

to be able to both study and play<br />

rugby . . . it’s obviously a really<br />

successful university that has<br />

had some great players come<br />

through,” said Poihipi.<br />

After playing predominantly at<br />

last year, he has stepped up<br />

this season and become a key<br />

component of the Hawkins Cup<br />

side. Poihipi was also the leading<br />

scorer during the cup campaign<br />

with 122 points.<br />

That form saw him called<br />

into the Crusaders for a couple<br />

of training sessions where he<br />

made enough of an impression<br />

to make his debut at second-five<br />

for the team against the French<br />

Barbarians on June 15, before<br />

heading to Perth to play the<br />

Western Force.<br />

“I was really surprised . . . I’d<br />

been training with them for<br />

a couple of sessions and just<br />

assumed I was there to make<br />

up numbers, so I was really<br />

honoured when I found out I<br />

was going to be playing,” said<br />

Poihipi.<br />

“It was surreal. You see all<br />

these guys on TV and next<br />

minute you’re rubbing shoulders<br />

with them and being welcomed<br />

into their environment with<br />

open arms.”<br />

On Saturday Poihipi returned<br />

to club duties, playing at firstfive<br />

for Lincoln University in<br />

their 30-15 win over University<br />

to move to the top of Hawkins<br />

Trophy table with just two<br />

rounds remaining before the<br />

semi-finals. However, he only<br />

lasted 30min after suffering a<br />

knee injury.<br />

You only need to look 12<br />

month’s back from that club<br />

final to see the odds of Poihipi<br />

going onto bigger things are in<br />

his favour. The 2016 Lincoln<br />

University team that won<br />

the metro final against New<br />

Brighton consisted of a backline<br />

made up of Jordie Barrett,<br />

Caleb Makene, Jack Goodhue,<br />

Harrison Groundwater, Josh<br />

McKay, Brett Cameron and Ere<br />

Enari.<br />

Since then Barrett and<br />

Goodhue have both gone onto<br />

represent the All Blacks. McKay,<br />

Enari and Cameron have all<br />

played at Super Rugby level,<br />

while Makene and Groundwater<br />

have both played Mitre 10 Cup.<br />

Poihipi also has genetics on his<br />

side. His father – also Rameka<br />

Poihipi – played 61 games at<br />

halfback for the Bay of Plenty<br />

Steamers between 1994 and<br />

2002.<br />

For now Poihipi says he’s<br />

remaining grounded with his<br />

eye on a club title before pushing<br />

his case for game time with<br />

Canterbury in the Mitre 10 Cup.<br />

LINCOLN University pulled off<br />

another come-from-behind win<br />

on Saturday, beating University<br />

30-15 at Ilam in the third round<br />

of section play for the Hawkins<br />

Trophy premier metro rugby<br />

championship.<br />

The UC Vipers sank the fangs<br />

into the Rams twice in the first<br />

half of this intriguing contest,<br />

and led 15-12 at half-time.<br />

The Rams did have a bit of<br />

luck. Two of the tries came<br />

from intercepts, a third from a<br />

charged-down clearing kick.<br />

Lincoln’s first try, just 4min<br />

into the game, was the best of<br />

the match.<br />

From set play – a scrum –<br />

George Stratton smacked into<br />

his marker from second-five,<br />

in spite of the ferocity of the<br />

impact, Stratton off-loaded to<br />

Connor Garden-Bachop, who<br />

had come across from the right<br />

wing.<br />

There was a groan from the<br />

bench as Garden-Bachop, with<br />

Caleb Makene outside him, took<br />

the ball into heavy contact, but<br />

Garden-Bachop rode a double<br />

tackle and slipped the ball away<br />

to Makene, who scored in the<br />

corner.<br />

The second-best try was scored<br />

by University’s Brayden Ennor,<br />

who hit a short pass at full tilt<br />

from 45m out and had the pace<br />

to go all the way.<br />

The clash between Ennor and<br />

Lincoln’s Ngane Punivai, back<br />

from New Zealand under-20<br />

duties, shaped as a beauty. But<br />

Ennor was taken off at half-time<br />

and Punivai finally succumbed<br />

to a leg knock later.<br />

That brought George Stratton<br />

back after a very short substitution<br />

break.<br />

Stratton continued to amaze.<br />

He hurled himself into the fray<br />

on attack and defence, no matter<br />

how large the obstacle in front<br />

of him. No 7 Connor Gordon<br />

was in similar form as a human<br />

dynamo and won the top accolade<br />

from the coaches, just ahead<br />

of the abrasive, non-stop John<br />

Borland.<br />

University gave it a good shot<br />

for a fair chunk of the match.<br />

With players like Ennor and<br />

Seamus Bardoul in midfield,<br />

plus captain Sam Godwin in<br />

the No 6 jersey, the Vipers<br />

can’t be taken lightly. No 8<br />

Matthew Letoga scored a good<br />

try as part of a useful all-round<br />

performance.<br />

There was some concern for<br />

the Rams when Rameka Poihipi<br />

was carried off with a knee<br />

injury at the 30min mark.<br />

Support staff seem more sure<br />

this time that Brett Cameron<br />

will be ready on Saturday when<br />

the Rams take on New Brighton<br />

at home.<br />

dISCOVER<br />

West Melton Kindergarten,<br />

Nursery and Learning Centre<br />

The West Melton Learning Centre<br />

Kaiako and tamariki for the last couple of<br />

months, have been focusing on learning<br />

all about people who help us and keep us<br />

safe, not only in our own community but<br />

other professions within our society who<br />

might help us too. We took a walk around<br />

our local area, visiting the people in the<br />

shopping centre, who made our large group<br />

of children feel very welcome.<br />

We enjoyed numerous visitors into the<br />

centre including two police officers that<br />

brought a car and motorbike with them.<br />

The tamariki had a turn in the car turning<br />

on the siren and sitting on the bike. We<br />

had a visit from an ambulance officer with<br />

an ambulance also, which was so valuable<br />

for the tamariki to have a good look inside<br />

and hear how the St John officer might help<br />

them. Finally, we invited two volunteer<br />

firefighters’. We learnt all about how to keep<br />

safe and enjoyed trying on the huge fire<br />

helmets and equipment too.<br />

The tamariki have also been learning<br />

about other professions who might help<br />

them too such as optometrist, surf lifesaving,<br />

dentist, doctors, nurses, nutritionist<br />

etc, learning about real life roles and<br />

opportunities for children to share their<br />

experiences.<br />

All of these discussions have been so<br />

valuable to the tamariki and have given<br />

them an insight into what all these services<br />

do within our community and how they<br />

can help us. Having the opportunity to<br />

discuss and have their questions answered<br />

have allowed the tamariki to explore,<br />

discover and make sense of the community<br />

around them and make connections and<br />

links to the wider world too. Thank you<br />

to all the local businesses and people who<br />

have visited us.<br />

West Melton section<br />

demand strong<br />

The popularity of sections in the 2000m2 to 2500m2<br />

range has been so great that Wilfield subdivision<br />

in West Melton has reconfigured its stage plan to<br />

incorporate more in this size bracket.<br />

Launched in 2015, Wilfield offers sections<br />

that range from 900m2 up to 6500m2 with<br />

prices starting at $245,000.<br />

Hamish Wheelans, director of Gillman<br />

Wheelans, developer of the subdivision,<br />

said that demand in the subdivision has<br />

been across the board, both in size of<br />

sections purchased and buyer demographic.<br />

“There has been strong demand for the<br />

900m2 to 1500m2 sections as well as our<br />

biggest offerings, but it is in this 2000m2 to<br />

2500m2 range where present demand lies,”<br />

he said.<br />

Wilfield has proven extremely popular<br />

with purchasers since launch, with 130<br />

sections having been sold in less than three<br />

years. This has seen the development of an<br />

adventure playground and tennis court as<br />

well as the recent opening of a new preschool.<br />

“The growth of Wilfield and our<br />

neighbouring subdivision of Preston<br />

Downs is synonymous with the growth<br />

of West Melton since the Christchurch<br />

earthquakes. As well as the new retail<br />

area, the West Melton Community<br />

and Recreation Centre is scheduled for<br />

completion later this year. As a sponsor of<br />

the Centre, we are looking forward to that<br />

date as we know it will become a focal point<br />

for the community,” he said.<br />

The Wilfield sales office is open every<br />

Wednesday and Sunday, 1pm to 3pm.<br />

If you are coming from Christchurch<br />

on West Coast Rd, there are signs as<br />

you approach West Melton providing<br />

New bulk cartage business<br />

servicing <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

In October last year, two <strong>Selwyn</strong> residents with long-term experience in operational<br />

management roles in the transport industry decided to join forces and set up their own<br />

transport company to service the district.<br />

Steve Menzies and Tony Howe purchased four trucks from Taylor Contractors and<br />

established their new Rolleston-based company, Transcon Ltd, to provide bulk cartage of<br />

grains, fertilisers and stock foods to the farming sector in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District, and across<br />

Canterbury.<br />

“We decided to do it for ourselves,” says Steve, which has proved to be a good decision.<br />

Business has taken off, and this has seen the company fleet being expanded to seven<br />

trucks.<br />

Also, within just the last few weeks, Transcon has added a new service – mini readymix,<br />

which provides concrete loads of up to three metres for smaller rural and residential jobs<br />

such as driveways, paths, shed foundations and fencing.<br />

“All concrete is batched on site so can meet the customer’s desired specification. Our<br />

ready mix operation can operate 24/7 to suit when you want concrete,” Steve says.<br />

Transcon employs four full-time staff members, who are from the area, and Steve and<br />

Tony are very pleased to be providing jobs and servicing their local region with a fast and<br />

efficient cartage service.<br />

Lamb leads boost<br />

in meat exports<br />

The value of lamb exports hit a new<br />

record of $369 million in May <strong>2018</strong>,<br />

Statistics NZ announced last Wednesday,<br />

with higher prices and more quantities of<br />

lamb exported boosting the May level. The<br />

previous high for lamb exports was $340<br />

million in February 2009.<br />

“It has been a strong month for meat<br />

exports in general, with both lamb and<br />

beef increasing in quantities,” international<br />

statistics manager Tehseen Islam said. Meat<br />

exports were up $119 million (17 per cent)<br />

to $812 million. Quantity was also up 12<br />

per cent.<br />

Lamb exports were the biggest<br />

contributor to the rise in meat, with value<br />

up $89 million (32 per cent) and quantity<br />

up 22 per cent. Exports of lamb were up to<br />

all major markets, including China and the<br />

European Union.<br />

Beef exports were up $16 million (4.5 per<br />

cent) to $359 million, with more exports to<br />

China. This increase was partly offset by a<br />

fall to the United States.<br />

Overall exports were up $509 million (10<br />

per cent) to $5.4 billion, with meat exports<br />

having the largest increase. This exports<br />

total is the second highest for any month.<br />

The highest exports total was $5.5 billion in<br />

December 2017.<br />

Forestry products had the second-largest<br />

increase in exports, up $99 million (26 per<br />

cent) to $477 million. The largest increases<br />

were to China, Singapore, and Hong Kong.<br />

Gardening<br />

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi<br />

SELWYN TIMES<br />

Top tips for planting over winter<br />

In the midst of winter, Rachel Vogan provides a<br />

few top growing tips<br />

COLD NIGHTS and clear days<br />

are good for the garden. Plus,<br />

the frosts that kill many insect<br />

and bug problems are generally<br />

followed by a sunny day, making<br />

clean-up and pruning tasks<br />

rather pleasant.<br />

Over the next few weeks<br />

pruning should be front of<br />

mind; a good winter clean-up<br />

now will pay dividends in the<br />

upcoming season. The basics<br />

of pruning and cutting back<br />

is to limit the size of the plant,<br />

which allows more light and<br />

air movement into the plant’s<br />

centre, and to always remove<br />

any damaged or diseased limbs.<br />

Don’t be afraid to use your<br />

loppers liberally.<br />

Another focus can be any<br />

trees, shrubs or roses that are<br />

in the wrong spot. These can be<br />

moved now, just remember to<br />

dig the new hole first or have any<br />

pots ready and waiting.<br />

Vegetables<br />

Parsnips should be on the<br />

menu now as a winter staple. Did<br />

you know that you do not need<br />

to harvest them all at once? Once<br />

they mature they can be left in<br />

the ground until mid-spring,<br />

saving you room in the fridge.<br />

This crop can only be grown<br />

from seed sown in October or<br />

November, while the soil is still<br />

cool.<br />

Keep planting garlic. Hunt<br />

out the fattest cloves you can<br />

find and aim to get them in<br />

the ground as soon as possible.<br />

Seedlings will appear in the<br />

shops soon as well.<br />

Spring onions, spinach, winter<br />

lettuce and mustard can all be<br />

transplanted into the ground<br />

now too.<br />

Crop cover<br />

Just like humans, parts of the<br />

garden like a little protection<br />

from the cold elements. Frost<br />

cloth is a good option to cover<br />

up tender citrus and climbers,<br />

and portable cloches and<br />

vegetable frames take the chill off<br />

the soil to speed up the growing<br />

process of many winter edible<br />

crops. Crop frames are easy to<br />

make from materials you may<br />

have at home. Net curtains work<br />

well when stretched between<br />

bamboo canes or if you have old<br />

windows about the place, prop<br />

these up on some bricks or slabs<br />

to offer protection.<br />

Water features<br />

At this time of year, algae<br />

can quickly build up in water<br />

gardens, mostly because of<br />

fallen leaves. Remove leaves as<br />

soon as they fall to help control<br />

the problem. Now is also a<br />

good time to empty ponds and<br />

features that are small enough to<br />

do so.<br />

Once empty, allow to fully<br />

dry out and treat the area with a<br />

pre-algae treatment, which you<br />

will find in the garden centres.<br />

In cold areas, float a ball in the<br />

water to prevent small ponds and<br />

features from freezing.<br />

Fruit trees<br />

Plant bare-rooted trees now.<br />

<strong>July</strong> and August are some of<br />

the best months of the year to<br />

plant deciduous fruit trees like<br />

apples, peaches, pears, apricots,<br />

cherries, plums and nectarines.<br />

They cope better with planting<br />

out as the plants are in a state of<br />

dormancy, limiting transplant<br />

shock, which can happen if<br />

planted in the warmer months.<br />

For gardens where space is<br />

limited, consider planting<br />

double or triple-grafted fruit<br />

trees, this not only saves space<br />

but allows you to enjoy a wider<br />

variety of harvest.<br />

Seeds, seeds and more seeds<br />

On those cold days when<br />

venturing outdoors isn’t an<br />

option, start thinking about<br />

what crops you want to grow in<br />

this upcoming season. All the<br />

seed catalogues are out now, and<br />

available online.<br />

It’s also a good time to stock<br />

up on seed-sowing essentials<br />

like seed-raising mix, seedling<br />

trays and labels, etc.<br />

A good idea is to share seeds<br />

with friends – often I find there<br />

are too many seeds for just my<br />

garden so passing around excess<br />

plants or seeds with others saves<br />

space and time, and makes it<br />

fun too.<br />

Building blocks<br />

to a new home<br />

As Cantabrians continue to move forward, when building<br />

a new home, here’s a reminder to pay attention to some of<br />

the fine details...<br />

Anyone intending to build a new home<br />

should have the builder’s contract<br />

checked out by an experienced lawyer.<br />

A payment schedule can also<br />

minimise financial risks. Issues that<br />

you may have to deal with include:<br />

the deposit, guarantees and warranties<br />

If you want to compare building<br />

companies, it’s important to get down<br />

to finer details such as how many<br />

power points there are per room, the<br />

type of windows you are having or<br />

which paint finishes are included.<br />

Questions to ask<br />

builders include:<br />

• Do you have a completion guarantee<br />

and how does it work?<br />

• Is there a loss of deposit<br />

guarantee?<br />

• Is the company a<br />

Registered Master Builder<br />

and does it use thirdparty<br />

written guarantees?<br />

• What is the schedule for<br />

payments?<br />

• How are the deposit and<br />

progress payments<br />

administered?<br />

• Are they held in a solicitor’s trust<br />

fund?<br />

• Will the master franchisor complete<br />

the build if the franchisee goes out<br />

of business<br />

• What are the exact specs?<br />

• Are the prices fixed?<br />

• What is excluded from the build?<br />

• Are there any restrictions on<br />

driveways or any other connections?<br />

• Can you speak with clients who<br />

have just completed a build?<br />

Do your homework before you decide<br />

on a building company and you will<br />

have a less stressful time once the<br />

building process starts.

bedroom home, one of at least 40<br />

designs brought to you by Peter Ray<br />

Homes.<br />

Peter Ray Homes has been building<br />

beautiful family homes for nearly<br />

30 years, and has a solid reputation<br />

supported by a highly qualified,<br />

friendly professional team.<br />

The Statham, at 574 East Maddisons<br />

Road in Faringdon, is one of several<br />

Peter Ray Show Homes in the<br />

Christchurch area. It is a 205 m2<br />

(floor area), plaster and cedar exterior,<br />

contemporary home with three<br />

bedrooms, two bathrooms and two<br />

living areas.<br />

From the raised ceiling entrance,<br />

the Statham opens to a large living<br />

space and dining area, with plenty of<br />

natural light and access to outdoors.<br />

Another living space to relax in, with<br />

ceiling bulkhead, is accessed via doors<br />

off the living area.<br />

The kitchen is central to the<br />

spacious living and dining areas.<br />

Roomy and well-appointed, it is ideal<br />

for entertaining, with easy access<br />

to the outdoors, or for seating the<br />

children with snacks at the grand,<br />

long island. The walk-in pantry is very<br />

generous with lots of shelf and bench<br />

space. A study nook in the dining area<br />

is far enough away from the action for<br />

some quiet, but still within the main<br />

living area, and close to the fridge.<br />

Off the short hallway are two very<br />

generous sized bedrooms, each<br />

with sizeable wardrobes, the family<br />

bathroom and separate toilet, and<br />

laundry with plenty of storage space.<br />

The master bedroom receives lots<br />

of light via sliding doors and feature<br />

windows. A large walk-in wardrobe<br />

is actually a ‘walk-through’ to the en<br />

suite.<br />

Attention to detail sets this show<br />

home apart from many others. The<br />

feature wallpaper in the second living<br />

room; vinyl plank – ‘Country Oak’<br />

– flooring throughout the kitchen,<br />

bathroom and laundry; soft-close<br />

cabinets; acrylic edge counter tops;<br />

raised garden beds and practical<br />

landscaping and decking – these<br />

represent well the design and build<br />

quality Peter Ray Homes is known for.<br />

As with all Peter Ray Homes<br />

designs, changes can be made to this<br />

design to suit, or the design team<br />

will work with you to produce an<br />

individual design to suit you and your<br />

section. If you don’t have a section,<br />

they can also help find the best one<br />

for you.<br />

The Statham Show Home in<br />

Faringdon is a great example of the<br />

quality Peter Ray Homes clients<br />

can expect. It is open 7 days, 12 till<br />

4 o’clock. All the house designs are<br />

Should I buy an apartment?<br />

13<br />

Apartments are springing up<br />

everywhere. In the year ended March 31,<br />

building consents for new apartments<br />

rose nearly 28 per cent. The majority<br />

of first home buyers may still prefer<br />

houses (research by CoreLogic earlier<br />

this year found that about 10 per cent of<br />

apartments were sold to people buying<br />

their first home), this number may rise as<br />

the housing landscape changes.<br />

Buying an apartment or townhouse<br />

can be an affordable way to live close to a<br />

city centre or other popular areas where<br />

standalone houses can be expensive.<br />

Recent research by the Real Estate<br />

Institute of New Zealand (REINZ)<br />

found that apartments presented a more<br />

economical option if you want to live in<br />

sought-after areas like Parnell or Epsom<br />

in Auckland, or Mount Victoria and<br />

Thorndon in Wellington.<br />

Apartments may seem like a lowmaintenance<br />

choice – no exterior walls to<br />

paint or lawns to mow – but they come<br />

with their own particular set of issues to<br />

consider. In most cases, apartments are<br />

held in unit title ownership. This means<br />

you own the apartment or unit and any<br />

‘accessory units’, like garages, car parks,<br />

private courtyards and storage areas<br />

contained in the record of title. Don’t<br />

assume that a car park is included unless<br />

it is specifically included – if there is one<br />

it may have a separate title and need to<br />

be purchased separately. You also own<br />

an undivided share of the ownership of<br />

the common property (eg lifts, laundries,<br />

lobby areas, driveways and gardens).<br />

Becoming a unit title holder means<br />

you automatically become a member of<br />

the body corporate, which consists of all<br />

the unit owners acting as a group. The<br />

body corporate handles the management<br />

and upkeep of the building and property,<br />

in return for all the members paying<br />

annual fees. These fees will probably<br />

include budgeted costs like insurance and<br />

management expenses, contributing to<br />

a long-term maintenance fund (LTMF)<br />

and any services the body corporate<br />

arranges for its members (such as rubbish<br />

collection and cleaning communal areas).<br />

Body corporate costs that have not been<br />

included in the budget are also payable<br />

by the unit owners, usually by way of a<br />

special levy.<br />

We strongly recommend asking a<br />

lawyer to help you understand the body<br />

corporate rules which set out your<br />

obligations and what you can or cannot<br />

do with your apartment.<br />

When you are looking at properties, ask<br />

the real estate agent to give you copies of<br />

the long-term maintenance plan (LTMP)<br />

and the building fund, along with copies<br />

of the body corporate meeting minutes<br />

from the past 12 months to understand<br />

the key issues and concerns. For example,<br />

is there enough money to pay to upgrade<br />

the lifts or repaint the complex? These<br />

can cost from tens to hundreds of<br />

thousands of dollars. Ask too about the<br />

building’s contingency plan, as there may<br />

be additional costs in addition to the<br />

building levies.<br />

Check that all the owners’ levies are up<br />

to date and that the accounts are audited.<br />

Read the details of the insurance policy.<br />

Is the body corporate involved in any<br />

proceedings against a third party, and are<br />

there any weather-tightness issues with<br />

the building? Check if an apartment or<br />

townhouse comes with a parking spot, or<br />

whether you will need to purchase this on<br />

a separate title.<br />

Body corporate rules are also likely to<br />

specify how an apartment is used and<br />

who can live in it, which may have an<br />

impact on any future plans you have for<br />

the apartment. Some body corporate rules<br />

extend to visitors to the property, such as<br />

the hours they can be on site and where<br />

they can park.<br />

While many apartment complexes<br />

develop into tightly-knit communities,<br />

living so close to others is not for<br />

everyone. Consider the amount of sound<br />

proofing the apartment has and find out<br />

what sort of people live there. If you play<br />

the drums in a thrash metal band on the<br />

weekends, a complex filled with retirees<br />

may not be the best choice.<br />

selling property, check out settled.govt.<br />

Making the most of<br />

show home viewing<br />

Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for<br />

features and fittings to put into a new home. It can also be helpful<br />

for getting a spatial feel for other aspects of a house design.<br />

Before heading out for a day’s<br />

viewing, conduct an internet search.<br />

identify the locations of show home<br />

villages and the types and sizes of the<br />

various building company’s homes on<br />

display, noting down the square metre<br />

size of each home.<br />

if wanting a high end, architectural<br />

design, focus on the larger homes that<br />

have desirable design features. if at the<br />

entry or middle level of the market,<br />

earmark homes that fit this taking in<br />

other show homes for extra ideas.<br />

allow sufficient time when visiting each<br />

show home, asking for a floor plan that<br />

has room sizes before walking through.<br />

Check also the floor to ceiling height<br />

of the rooms and consider how this feels<br />

and whether you prefer a cosier feel with<br />

the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or<br />

more spaciousness created with a higher<br />

stud or exposed ceiling beams.<br />

if doors and windows are taller than<br />

normal, weigh their effect in creating<br />

a more luxurious and spacious feel,<br />

against potential inconvenience for small<br />

children, cleaning and maintenance.<br />

on entering each room, take account of<br />

how much furniture is in each room and<br />

whether there is sufficient space for the<br />

furniture you will have in the room and<br />

the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look<br />

too, at storage capacity throughout the<br />

home and whether this is adequate.<br />

in the living areas, consider whether a<br />

lounge separated from the family living<br />

room or a true open plan kitchen, dining,<br />

living/lounge area is preferable, and<br />

compare internal kitchens with those that<br />

have natural light.<br />

Look too at the layout of<br />

the kitchen: whether to have<br />

an island sink or breakfast<br />

bar where a newspaper can<br />

be read, and children can<br />

sit and draw or complete<br />

homework; the positioning<br />

of appliances; and how<br />

important having a pantry is.<br />

for the little rooms, equate<br />

space and features desired<br />

with that needed, especially<br />

if the budget needs to be<br />

sharp. it might be nice to<br />

have a large walk-in shower<br />

with double shower heads<br />

but is this just fanciful and<br />

will the extra cleaning annoy you long<br />

term. a laundry in the garage is also more<br />

economical though a separate laundry<br />

may be handier.<br />

Bring the garage size into the equation<br />

also. as these vary considerably, assess<br />

the actual measurements of each garage<br />

viewed comparing this with the space<br />

needed for your motor vehicles and other<br />

items to be stored there. if a good number<br />

of toys will be housed there, it may be<br />

sensible to increase the size of this area of<br />

the home.<br />

By imagining what you need, want and<br />

will have in your new home, you will be in<br />

a better position to confidently choose a<br />

design that works for you.<br />
