Carter makes surprise return

Southbridge superstar

does promotional

video for TAG Heuer

• By Gordon Findlater

DAN CARTER made a

flying, hush-hush trip back to

Southbridge late last week to

make a promotional video for

Swiss luxury goods maker, TAG

Heuer.

Filming for the video included

Carter’s visit to the school,

returning to the Southbridge

Rugby Club to kick goals, as well

as kicking goals over the posts at

his parents Neville

and Bev’s home.

The promotion

is earmarked for

social media. The

visit on Thursday was the first

time Carter had been back to

Southbridge in two years,

“Not a lot changes. I didn’t tell

anyone I was coming into town.

I’ve already seen some old mates

down the main street. I popped

in to get a coffee and saw Sam

Broomhall, another All Black, in

there getting his lunch,” Carter

told Selwyn Times.

“That’s what I love about this

small community . . . it’s a

pretty special place. Obviously

I’ve travelled all around the

world but Southbridge is well

Watch the video

at www.star.kiwi

and truly my home.”

Carter has been in France for

three years playing for Racing

92.

The two-time World Cup

winning first-five and TAG

Heuer ambassador also talked

at his old school, Southbridge

Primary, on Thursday, and

took a tour around the school

grounds with principal Tamara

Bell.

He kicked a

ball around with

pupils and also

met the school’s

pet kunekune pig

Rawhiti.

He spent Thursday night at

his parents Southbridge home

before returning to Auckland,

where he is based, on Friday.

But home is always home.

Said Neville Carter: “He’ll

have a look in the fridge

and see what fruit’s in there,

what’s edible and if there’s any

chocolate in the corner. That’s

about all he does really.”

Carter replied: “It’s the first

thing I do actually. It’s quite

funny. Mum says I just keep

going there and looking in the

fridge.” •Turn to page 4

Wednesday July 11 2018

I’M SURE the kids at Southbridge School

will remember Dan Carter’s visit well into

their ageing years.

Carter was back home to film a

promotion for TAG Heuer (see page 1), the

Swiss luxury goods company.

It will be posted on social media and no doubt will go viral.

It was meant to have been kept quiet, but it’s hard to keep

things under wraps when journalistic radars are on 24/7.

Having said that, Carter didn’t try to duck when tackled by

the Selwyn Times, playing ball like the good guy he is.

As they say, you can take the boy out of Southbridge but you

can’t take Southbridge out of the boy.

$2.7m budget increase

likely for aquatic centre extension

• By Emily O’Connell

AN EXTRA $2.7 million may

be allocated to get the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre extension under

way.

The district council discussed

the budget increase at its meeting

last week.

District

councillor

Murray Lemon

said it decided

to delay making

a call on the

budget increase

Murray

Lemon

“to get a better

grip on the

process going

forward.”

Cr Lemon said the changes

follow consultation on the district

council’s Long Term Plan.

“If we’re going to give any

credence to consulting and give

it any weight and not just box

tick, then we need to listen to

what came back from the consultation

from the submissions,”

he said.

Three options were presented

to the district council.

Option one is what was adopted

in the district council’s Long

PLANS: The Selwyn Aquatic Centre extension could cost an

extra $2.7 million if the district council approves the increase

in budget at its meeting next month. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Term Plan, it costs $11.7 million

and includes an additional 25m

eight-lane programme pool to

north of the building.

Option two includes an addition

of permanent seating for

about 200 people, an extension

of the foyer space, changing the

positioning of the additional

25m eight-lane programme pool

to the west and changing the use

of current eight-lane lap pool to

a 1m deep programme pool at a

cost of $13.2 million.

The third and preferred option

includes having 10 lanes in

2019

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 2 MARCH 2019

the additional 25m programme

pool and refurbishing some

pool storage to include toilets. It

comes at a cost of $14.4 million.

If it was approved, option two

would see the targeted rate for

the facility increase by four per

cent and option three, eight per

cent.

Cr Lemon said option three

is “the best reflection of where

they’ve come to.”

At the meeting Mayor Sam

Broughton was supportive of

option one due to the cost of

the facility and “thinking about

protection from the easterly for

any future development of an

outdoor swim space.”

However, he told Selwyn

Times “any change is always

possible.”

District councillor John

Morten said he has not made up

his mind yet on what the best

option would be.

“We needed time to digest

those options . . . we’re not

prepared to make a decision just

straight off the cuff out of what

was in those papers,” he said.

Construction on the aquatic

centre is expected to be completed

halfway through 2020.

In Brief

CHURCH REPAIRS

More than $1000 of the estimated

$20,000 needed has been raised

towards repairing Springfield’s

St Peter’s Community Church. A

film evening was held to raise

funds. The church had its roof

repainted with the next step

being to repair woodwork on the

exterior. The evening featured

films by late Waddington resident

Fred Bull showcasing Malvern in

the 1930s.

Carter’s surprise return

SELWYN TIMES

•From page 1

“I’m not sure if it’s an old habit

or some of mum’s good cooking

that I’m looking for.”

In Auckland on Friday, Carter

attended a TAG Heuer event at

St Paul’s College where he raised

$10,000 for the iSport foundation,

which he and former All Blacks

captain Richie McCaw founded.

Carter’s next career move will

see him move to Japan to start a

two-year contract with the Kobelco

Steelers later this year.

He will link up with some

familiar faces in Kobe, including

former Crusaders and All Blacks

teammate Andy Ellis.

“It will be good to connect with

him again and get that old nine-

10 partnership working again,”

Carter said.

“Wayne Smith [former Crusaders

and All Blacks coach] does

a bit of coaching there as well

so that was a big reason why I

decided to play there.”

E.coli forces chlorination early

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PERMANENT chlorination of

the Sheffield Waddington water

supplies have been fast tracked

because of E.coli.

A decision was made by the

district council in consultation

with the Canterbury District

Health Board to continue

chlorinating the scheme after

the E.coli boil notice expired

last month.

A boil notice was issued

on June 7, commencing the

temporary chlorination and

expired on June 14.

The district council previously

confirmed it would permanently

chlorinate the water supplies

this month and August.

The decision was a result of

pipe breaks, backflow, illegal

connections and reservoir

failures in the supplies.

It received backlash from

residents living in the Sheffield,

Waddington, Glentunnel,

Coalgate and Whitecliffs areas.

The district council’s assets

manager Murray Washington

said the Sheffield Waddington

supplies will also be upgraded

with UV treatment, additional

filtration and chlorine

equipment.

Work is expected to be

completed in September.

Waddington resident Casey

de Bruin said wasn’t he aware

the district council was still

chlorinating the water supplies.

He said the residents should

have been notified and believes

when the issue of the E.coli is

resolved the chlorination should

not be continued.

Mr Washington said the

Malvern Hills Hartleys Rd

scheme could be temporarily

chlorinated now, as has been

done on a temporary basis as a

result of transgressions.

He said the district council

will provide consumers

with maximum advance

notice possible prior to the

commencement of permanent

chlorination.

Brian Thompson, who

previously organised a public

meeting in Glentunnel over the

permanent chlorination, said

had not had an update from the

district council.

He said he is continuing

fight against the permanent

chlorination and to get more

information.

Providing fire

wood for

people who

can’t afford it

THE DISTRICT council is

working with a community group

to help it supply firewood to those

in need.

It leases part of a gravel pit at

Broadfield near Prebbleton to the

Firewood Mission, which uses the

space to split and cut the wood to

prepare it for delivery.

The Firewood Mission, which

was set up 17 years ago by Al

Fone, delivers firewood to those

who can’t afford it, helping keep

their households warm during

winter.

District council acquisitions

disposals and leasing manager

Rob Allen said a resource consent

allows the charity to use part of

the pit to prepare the wood.

He said it’s fantastic for the

district council to give back to a

charitable organisation working

to help those in need.

Last year the Firewood Mission

delivered 333 cu m of wood to

111 households. Each household

receives three cubic metres.

Mr Fone said his team of about

30 volunteers has worked tirelessly

felling, splitting, sorting and

delivering wood.

Weedons

School’s

new name

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WEEDONS SCHOOL has a new

name.

The school will now be known

as Weedons School Te Kura o

Karamu.

It has been named after the native

coprosma plant - coprosma

robusta. The large bushy shrub

is believed to be typical of the

Weedons’ area in early Maori

times. The name was gifted by

Ngati Moki Marae of Te Taumutu

Runanga, based in Southbridge.

Principal Kathy Bell said the coprosma

robusta is a resilient plant

that thrives in all conditions. She

said the idea of marae gifting the

name was wanting its pupils to be

resilient, rise to the challenges and

overcome obstacles.

It is planned the school is going

to give each pupil a karamu plant

when they leave the school to keep

at home with an idea to create a native

corridor from the mountains

to the sea.

The naming ceremony was attended

by teachers, parents and

members of the community. It

featured a hangi, a kapa haka performance

and waiata.

SIX YEARS ago Abigail Curd

was a shy 13-year-old who

struggled by being “quiet” and

“awkward.”

Now the 19-year-old will be

walking in front of crowds at

the Miss Universe New Zealand

final next month.

Miss Curd, who is from

Rolleston, is one of 20 women to

be selected for the finals.

The winner will go on to

represent New Zealand in the

international Miss Universe

competition in America.

Although modelling was initially

her mother Rachel’s idea,

Miss Curd is glad she got into it.

“I used to be quite shy and

awkward and it’s like really

given me a lot of confidence,”

she said.

The former Lincoln High

School student has been modelling

for about six years and says

her reasons for entering the

competition were to “explore a

little bit” and see what good she

could do with what she’s learnt.

“Previously with all the work

that I’ve done it’s all been about

looks and beauty and there’s

nothing really intricate to it,”

she said.

Miss Curd didn’t think she

would make the finals after

meeting the other women who

had entered.

“Pretty overwhelming, like I

wasn’t expecting it at all,” she said.

Miss Curd said she enjoys

doing bridal modelling due to its

“elegance and beauty.”

She’s “really excited” about the

finals but she is nervous about

how it’s going to go.

Battle lost for Waddington stop sign

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WADDINGTON residents have

lost a battle for a stop sign at an

accident prone intersection.

The New Zealand Transport

Association has turned down a

plea for the stop sign at the intersection

of State Highway 73 and

Waimakariri Gorge Rd.

In a letter to the district council’s

road safety sub committee,

NZTA lead strategic interventions

adviser Jenny Dickinson

said a stop sign is normally used

where there is limited visibility

approaching the intersection.

“For drivers on Waimakariri

Gorge Rd there is good visibility

in both directions on SH73,

which normally means a give

way sign is an appropriate tool

for drivers,” she said.

But Ms Dickinson said NZTA

will talk to police to see if there

are other helpful interventions

or changes that could be made to

the intersection to make it safer.

It comes after a letter was presented

to the Sheffield-Waddington

Community Committee in

February by resident Bob Scott.

The letter discussed concerns

the current give way sign is

difficult for people to see when

they pull up to the intersection

and the corner is busy with

signage.

Already two serious crashes

have been recorded at the intersection

this year, one a fatal.

in both serious and minor

they had actually considered improving

it. “The corner does need

do anything about the corner or

are they going to wait until there

Nearby resident Casey de

it is a driver issue, if something

would be the answer.

Senior constable Andy

Grant said whether there is a give

He said there are a lot of signs

Castle Hill villagers dress up

up to celebrate solstice

Castle Hill

Community

Association

chairman Rob

Murfitt talks

about what’s

happening in

the area

WHAT A sudden change of

season. June saw winter arrive in

no uncertain fashion.

Snow showers in the village,

cold nights and we are gearing

up for a good season in the Craigieburn

ski fields.

Castle Hill villagers celebrated

the solstice with a themed dinner,

South of the Border.

There was Mexican-South

American cuisine, themed dress,

music and dance. This continues

a tradition in the village helped

by the fact no one needs to drive

home.

The community hall is a focus

of village life, used regularly for

community gatherings for rugby

match viewing, as well as special

family events.

In the village, a lot of effort

has been put into consulting the

community as to the future environmental

goals in relation to the

management of reserves.

Trees once planted for diversity

and character have grown over

the last 40 years to the extent

there is, for some, undue interference

with views and light.

As always, there are

countervailing views and a

balanced review is important.

Of course, the need to manage

pest species of trees needs to be

achieved in tandem with the

district council and Environment

Canterbury.

FESTIVITY:

Castle Hill

village

marked the

solstice with

a South of

the Border

dinner.

Playground features developed

over the years are under review,

too.

The villagers value the planned

informality of the play sites in

the village, where children can

“happen upon” various activities.

We need to ensure the basic

demands of safety do not destroy

the opportunities for adventure

and fun, which the children so

enjoy at present.

The village continues to grow

and prosper, and new construction

continues apace.

This is a place which has the

ability to blow one’s mind with

the views, the sunsets, the recreational

activities, and the serenity

which comes from being in the

heart of the high country.

To promote further safety

awareness, maybe a continuance

of this signage should be at the

entrance to Prebbleton School

from the Lincoln side, and at any

other juncture that Mr Hunter or

Cr Lyall would deem necessary.

This would hopefully ensure

the necessity that all entering

Prebbleton observe the speed

limits of this rural town.

between Glentunnel and

Lyn Gallagher – Having

moved to Whitecliffs after the

2011 earthquake, I’ve been aware

of a growing population out here,

many of them younger families.

From conversations with other

locals, and my own experience,

this proposal has been long

awaited. A walkway/cycleway

would mean families could walk

or bike to the local Glentunnel

store, cafe, pre-school and

school safely without having to

be ‘looking over their shoulder’

constantly at the threat of a

truck or car coming up behind

them. One mother and her two

pre-school children had a very

close shave with a truck recently.

A walkway would also be an

incentive for young mothers or

fathers to take their babies out in

a pram, something that would

be unsafe at present. I feel the

walkway/cycleway would add a

quality of life out here, and I feel

a growing sense of excitement

that this incentive may finally

come to fruition.

Sue Wragg – As a resident

I strongly support a walkway/

cycleway between Glentunnel

and Whitecliffs. I have cycled

with my young grandson and

often walked it. Certainly fast

traffic and narrow corners to

contend with.

It would be used a great deal

in summer when the camping

ground is very popular, especially

since there is both a shop and

cafe in Glentunnel.

Liana Pasco – I support

live on Whitecliffs Rd (up on the

hills) and we have two young

children. Our eldest is five and

he quite often bikes all the way to

Coalgate with his nan. It scares

me that he is riding on the road

and going around the sharp

corners.

Graham Burnip – I live in

Glentunnel and drive to visit

friends in Whitecliffs. I could

easily bike this distance, but the

traffic and winding road make it

scarily dangerous.

So I’d favour a path adjacent

to the road sooner rather than

later. While a formed track would

be a good first step, an eventual

bitumen surface would be ideal.

Good news for first home buyers

Selwyn MP Amy Adam

writes about how the

district has become more

affordable for first home

buyers

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

WHILE WE continue to hear

stories about the rising cost of

housing and difficulties for first

home buyers in other parts of

New Zealand, here in Selwyn

housing has gradually become

more affordable since 2009,

according to figures from the

Ministry of Business, Innovation

and Employment.

Unfortunately, MBIE figures

are not yet available for 2017,

but housing affordability in the

region dropped from a peak of

74.5 per cent in 2009 to 55.4 per

cent – well below the overall New

Zealand figure of 77.5 per cent

for 2016.

The percentage relates to the

number of renting households

that would have a residual

income after housing costs of

below the national median, so

(while it is a little tricky to get

your head around) the higher

the percentage figure, the less

affordable housing is in that

region.

From my perspective, the

availability of land and large

number of new homes being

constructed in Selwyn since

2009 have all contributed to this

situation.

It is a classic case of supply and

demand working well.

Another factor that has

contributed to housing

affordability in the region is the

previous Government’s policy

of making grants available for

first home buyers through the

Kiwisaver Homestart Grant

scheme.

SOLD: Selwyn MP Amy Adams says houses in the district are

more affordable for first home buyers.

During the period of January

to March 2018, a total of 118

Kiwisaver HomeStart Grant

applications were approved in

the Selwyn district and 93 grants

totalling $690,000 were paid

out. These grants enabled the

purchase of 59 properties.

This trend of more first time

buyers getting into the market

has been seen across New

Zealand. According to the

Property Institute, over a third

of those securing mortgages

in March 2018 in the greater

Christchurch area were first

home buyers. This makes

first home buyers by far the

largest group of new mortgage

customers locally, compared

with those refinancing at 19.4 per

cent; investors at 17.7 per cent

and those moving house at 11.3

per cent.

For those looking to use

Kiwisaver to secure their first

home, it is important to note

that there are two KiwiSaver

products available for first

home buyers. The KiwiSaver

HomeStart Grant is

administered by Housing New

Zealand, while the ability to

withdraw KiwiSaver funds for a

deposit through the Kiwisaver

FirstHome Savings Withdrawal

scheme is administered by

Kiwisaver providers.

ANZ reports that it has seen

a near five-fold increase in the

number of borrowers using

KiwiSaver funds for a home

deposit, with about 40 per

cent of first home buyers using

KiwiSaver to finance a deposit in

the year to September 2017.

Harcourts for Lincoln

Local

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Emily O’Connell

LINCOLN’S growing population

has attracted another real estate

company – Harcourts.

Harcourts Four Seasons Realty

will open an office in the former

Westpac bank site in Gerald St in

September.

Four Seasons principal officer

James Twiss said they are “really

excited” about the opportunity

and they’re keen to be part of the

community and do their part to

help out.

Mr Twiss

said they made

the decision to

open an office

in Lincoln

following

district council

statistics which

showed the

predicted

James Twiss

growth in the

area.

“Seven thousand five hundred

people with a reasonably active

real estate market was an obvious

place to put an office, but the fact

there’s potential growth in there

also was something that sort of

interested us,” he said.

The average sale price of

a house in Lincoln over the

past year ending in June was

$601,000.

Mr Twiss said most house

hunters tend to be families who

are looking for are looking for

four-bedroom, two-bathroom

houses.

However, he said there is still

a market for smaller units with

developments in Barton Fields

which has a precinct for people

aged over 55-years-old.

BUSINESS: Harcourts will open in Lincoln in September.

“We’re seeing really strong

growth in that two-bedroom,

two-bathroom, over-55s market

and the people buying in there

tend to be coming off rural lots

south of Lincoln,” Mr Twiss said.

He believes that market will

continue to grow as the population

ages.

Mr Twiss said it’s still to be decided

how many people will work

in the Lincoln office but it will be

looking to hire local people.

He said Westpac had been

making its final changes to the

building and construction by

Harcourts started last week.

“We’re expecting it’s probably

going to be a two-month sort

of fit out to get the thing up to

where we need it to be,” Mr Twiss

said.

Ross Mitchell, who lives in Lincoln,

will be managing the office.

NEW: The former Westpac bank building in Lincoln is set to

become a Harcourts.

Trust brings the

community together

Lincoln

Envirotown

trustee Sue

Jarvis writes

about the

Lincoln

Envirotown

Trust

IN 2007 the Lincoln Envirotown

Trust, after consulting widely,

decided to hold a community

meeting for the Lincoln

community to put together a

community environmental

action plan.

About 45 people turned up and

came up with many ideas as well

as adopting various sections of

the plan.

This original plan, together

with many other ideas, has guided

how LET has worked with

and assisted the community to

bring about Lincoln Envirotown.

Since then, having achieved so

much, and definitely not run out

of ideas (just think of the ever

increasing issue of plastic pollution)

LET has become involved

in activities and communities

Selwyn wide.

LET is now planning an event

to discuss the environmental

future of the whole of Selwyn

and so we invite people of all

ages to come and consider

Selwyn’s Environment – What is

our Future?

This will be held July 22 at the

Lincoln Bowling Club, which is

adjacent to Lincoln Event Centre.

There will be speakers, displays

and refreshments.

So please drop in between 1pm

and 4pm and join in generating

and discussing ideas on how our

community can create a sustainable

future for the district at the

family friendly event.

All the feedback generated

will form the basis of a Lincoln

Envirotown Trust planning

meeting later in the year, where

we will look at how we can help

Selwyn communities implement

new projects encouraging

environmental sustainability and

community strength.

Prior to the event tell us the issues

that are important to you by

completing our 15 second survey.

This can be found on Lincoln

Envirotown’s website, Facebook

page or Eventbrite: https://whatisourfuture.eventbrite.co.nz.

Lincoln

STUDENTS from Florida, with

Mark Hostetler and Meryl Klein,

along with a number of locals

did an amazing job planting

about 400 native plants at the

Mahoe Reserve Native plant

re-vegetation project recently.

Thanks to everyone who

helped, especially to Lincoln

Envirotown members and the

Mahoe Management committee

for all their organisation behind

the scenes. Also to Colin Meurk

for his usual expert demonstration.

While we were there we found

a young skink so he (or she –

how do you tell with skinks?)

was carefully put into our new

hedgehog-proof lizard enclosure.

We are hoping that our efforts

to recreate the native plant community

that would have been

there before humans arrived

will also provide a good habitat

for native animals – so this is a

great sign.

Hedgehogs are predators on

skinks and have been found,

using tracking tunnels, to be

common at the reserve.

Students from Florida have

been visiting the Mahoe Reserve

in Lincoln every year for about

10 years to help us.

Fruit sales for good cause

• By Emily O’Connell

FIVE TAI Tapu School pupils

have gone fruity to raise funds

for a 3D printer.

Year 5 and 6 pupils Hugo

Arthur, Max Wilson, Oscar

Holvey, Louie Garry and Matthew

Elliott have raised $1387

through selling fruit boxes.

The group, who were mentored

by the Garry family,

toured MG marketing and were

able to advertise the fruit boxes

to the school community at a

discounted price.

The orders were taken and

boxes distributed by the group.

They followed a business plan

and have a detailed spreadsheet

to organise costs and buyers.

The project was part of the

Discover, Attempt, Reflect,

Extend programme at Tai Tapu

School.

The DARE programme, which

started three years ago, allows

pupils to design a learning

project of their choice in small

groups.

The project needs to be a new

invention, something they can

adapt and improve or something

which addresses a need within

the school, community or is designed

to give service to others.

Pupils use a design thinking

process and each stage of their

project is mentored by a teacher.

Teacher Karen Blatchford said

the fruit group had great support

from the community due to

their “excellent” promotion and

advertising.

“The school is very proud of

their efforts and many students

will benefit for the use of the

printer,” she said.

One of the pupils has registered

the school for selling

STEAM Kits which will be a

further fundraiser.

The 3D printer, which the

group is hoping to buy next

term, will be used for inventor

workshops and DARE projects.

Other DARE groups have

raised money for welcome packs

and soft toys for Cholmondeley

Children’s Centre, made

donations to the Society for

Prevention of Cruelty to

Animals Canterbury and the

Christchurch City Mission,

created carpentry tables for

junior pupils and made games

for the classroom.

The schools wants to thank

Dole for the bananas and pineapples

it supplied and the MG

fantastic pricing.

SELWYN TIMES

Diversity across Selwyn district

is continuing to grow

Surinder Tandon (right) and Manish Pandey from the Christchurch Multicultural Council present Mayor Sam Broughton with a

certificate of appreciation.

Over the past 12 months 372 new citizens have been welcomed at 12 citizenship ceremonies. The

new Selwyn residents, come from 40 different countries across the world.

Over that period the four country’s providing the most new arrivals were Britain with 136, South

Africa with 45, the Philippines with 33 and India with 25.

While Selwyn district has also welcome news residents from Iraq, Tanzania, Afghanistan, Kenya

and Nepal, as well as a range of countries around the world.

Mayor Sam Broughton says it’s positive to see the district become home to a wide range of

nationalities.

“As a growing district it’s fantastic to see people from all over the world wanting to make Selwyn a

permanent home.

“Our growing diversity continues to enhance our district, and the vibrancy it has.”

Data from the 2013 Census had Selwyn showing significant growth in terms of diversity.

It reviewed where people had come from prior to moving to Selwyn.

The data showed new residents had moved from the likes of South Africa, Fiji, India, the

Netherlands, China and a range of other countries.

Mayor Sam Broughton is looking forward to the upcoming Census to get a firm idea on how

Selwyn is growing, and who is living here.

“With our rapid change over the last five years, the Census will give us a strong idea about the

true identity of our district.

“We rely on interim data from Statistics New Zealand, but the true data from the census will help

us in key decision making.”

Selwyn is part of a two year Welcoming Communities pilot programme involving eight other

councils in five regions across New Zealand. It aims to mobilise and involve local residents in

welcoming activities.

Previous settlement initiatives have focused primarily on supporting newcomers, the new

approach creates bridges between members of the receiving community and newcomers.

One part of the programme is for each council and community to produce a Welcoming Plan that

outlines what action is needed to meet the Welcoming Communities Standard, a benchmark for

what a successful welcoming community looks like. The Selwyn Welcoming Plan, to be launched

in August, should be read alongside the 2015 Newcomer and Migrants Strategy.

The work the Selwyn District Council has already done has been recognised by the Christchurch

Multicultural Council, who thanked the Council for initiatives like the CultureFest, and other

activities which work to welcome newcomers and migrants.

Council helping to warm homes

across the region

Selwyn District Council is working with a local community group to

help it supply firewood to those in need around the district, and the

Greater Canterbury Region.

The Council leases part of a gravel pit at Broadfield near Prebbleton

to the Firewood Mission, which uses the space to split and cut the

wood to prepare it for delivery for those in need.

The Firewood Mission, which was set up 17 years ago by Al Fone,

delivers firewood to those who can’t afford it, to help keep their

households warm over winter.

The Council’s Acquisitions Disposals and Leasing Manager, Rob

Allen, says a resource consent allows the charity to use part of the

pit to prepare the wood.

He said it is fantastic for the Council to give back to a charitable

organisation working to help those in need.

Last year the Firewood Mission delivered 333 cubic metres of wood

to 111 households. Each household receives three cubic metres.

Firewood Mission team leader Al Fone says his team of around

30 volunteers has worked tirelessly felling, splitting, sorting and

delivering wood.

He said they are grateful for the help they receive from the likes of

the Selwyn District Council and without it the work they do wouldn’t

be possible.

Fone said they often encounter heart break stories, and was

recently told of one woman who was heating her house with the

oven, as prior to delivery of the wood it was the only source of

heating in her home.

Once a year the Firewood Mission comes into Council to pay its

‘peppercorn’ rent for the pit usage.

Winter Family Storytime

Selwyn District Libraries will be hosting a special interactive

evening Storytime during August. We will be sharing some fabulous

interactive stories plus there will be a treasure hunt. Come along in

your cosiest PJs and join in the fun. Sessions are aimed at two to

BROADFIELD A have gone

through round two of the Selwyn

premier netball competition

unbeaten after a 62-50 win over

Greenpark A at Lincoln Event

Centre.

While round three is where

you want to be peaking, heading

into the playoffs, Broadfield A

can boast bragging rights with

their four win, one draw record.

Coach Yvonne Crichton-Hill

said despite her team’s best

season in many years, she was

confident they hadn’t hit their

full potential just yet.

“In the past when we got up

by three goals, I’m not sure

what happened but we usually

switched off, but this year we are

learning to keep the foot on the

throat because we have too. “

“As a coach, I can feel the other

teams breathing down my neck

which makes for a good competition

but it is all go,” she said.

Crichton-Hill said she was

thrilled with how both the attack

and defensive ends of the court

worked for each other during the

win. “When we get a turnover in

defence, our high shooting percentages

are meaning that we are

converting that chance and that’s

really important.”

She praised the work of Eboni

Trio make national deaf

lawn bowls team

• By Jacob Page

THREE SELWYN lawn bowlers

have made the New Zealand

team for the International

Deaf Bowls Championships in

Christchurch next year.

Barbara Herrick, Hazel

Littlejohn and Margaret Bailey

from the West Melton, Darfield

and Leeston bowls clubs

respectively will join forces to

play triples together.

Herrick and Bailey have

made regular appearances for

New Zealand in the past, while

Littlejohn is a fourth year bowler

and the tournament in January

will be her first international

call-up.

The event is held in various

countries around the world

every four years and has been

held in Christchurch, Wales,

Scotland, South Africa, England,

Australia, Northern Ireland and

Ireland.

This year the teams are from

Australia, Wales, Scotland,

England, Ireland and Northern

Ireland.

Littlejohn said she was excited

by the opportunities deaf lawn

bowls had offered her.

“I first met Barbara at a

tournament on the West Coast

two years ago. When she found

out that I was deaf, she asked

Christchurch in January.

me then if I was interested in

trialling for the deaf world bowls

team.

“She introduced me to Maggie

there, too.”

“We had our trials the last

weekend in May this year in

Pukekohe, where we met other

deaf players from the rest of New

Zealand,” she said.

“In order to qualify we must

have moderately severe hearing

loss (hearing level 55 or more).

“We were chuffed that we

had been selected to play in the

triples, which is a bonus as we

can practice when the grass

season gets under way again, in

local tournaments together.”

Herrick has been playing the

sport for 27 years, while Bailey

has played for five and Littlejohn

three years.

From now until the

tournament, the fundraising will

begin.

Ellesmere play to retain

Southbridge Shield

• By Jacob Page

ELLESMERE WILL look to

retain the Southbridge Shield

on Saturday against North

Canterbury at Prebbleton Oval.

Ellesmere regained the shield

last year with a 35-20 win in

Kaiapoi.

Ellesmere have had one win

and one loss in their two games

so far this season. They were

outclassed 29-10 by a Queensland

Country XV on June 25.

However, Ellesmere ended their

five-year winless stretch against

Mid-Canterbury, toppling them

26-24 in Ashburton last Tuesday,

which should give them plenty

of confidence for the weekend.

Ellesmere coach Alex Robertson

said the team were working

hard on their scrums and lineouts.

“We know if our set-piece

goes well that will lay a platform

for our attack,” he said.

Ellesmere had the better of the

scrums against Mid-Canterbury,

even earning a penalty try for

scrum dominance, but Robertson

said he was expecting North

Canterbury to make them work

a lot harder.

“It’s a privilege to play for

Ellesmere and for the Southbridge

Shield and the boys have

formed good combinations over

the past two games so we’re

expecting to do the area proud,”

he said.

There will be six games across

the grades between the two subunions,

all played in Prebbleton.

They each won three games

last year.

Lincoln Uni demolish Brighton

• By Jim Doyle

LINCOLN University did

another demolition job on New

Brighton on Saturday, roaring

away in the second half to win

45-13.

The Rams are now firmly on

the road to securing a fourth

successive Hawkins Trophy title

in metro premier club rugby.

The sandhoppers seemed to

like the lush pasture of Lincoln

better than the beach, even

leading 13-10 at half-time. The

second half was a different story.

Brett Cameron showed great

hands to whisk the ball off the

deck, Sam Gilbert split the

defence with a carving run, and

Connor Garden-Bachop was

across easily. Then Caleb Makene

scored on the other side of

the field after Jack Stratton made

the crucial break.

Three further tries in the last

quarter thrust Lincoln past the

bonus point mark and into the

semi-finals for the Hawkins

Trophy.

It was a timely return by Cameron

because Rameka Poihipi

was seated behind the rope with

some serious hardware on his

right leg.

Cameron distributed the ball

sweetly, made the odd dab himself,

never shirked a tackle, and

landed all of his attempts at goal,

some from tricky angles across a

tricky wind.

In the first half, fullback

Gilbert took off on a remarkable

angled run from his own line

and almost got to halfway before

meeting solid resistance. Then

he made a slick off-load in the

tackle. Problem was he gave the

ball to Brighton left wing Jordan

French, who gratefully scooted

away to score.

So Brighton’s only try was

against the run of play, although

lock Boris van Bruchem went

close with a good break just on

half-time.

The visitors were severely

times or at least gave Brighton

No 8 Aaron McCoy an impossible

task. Harrison Courtney and

Troy Hallett were at the cutting

edge of Lincoln’s demolition job

and both showed up powerfully

with ball in hand.

Mitch Dunshea and Jack

Stratton were late additions to

the starting line-up after being

cleared to play by the Crusaders.

The visitors had some good

passages of play without setting

the world on fire. Nikos

while Scott Pawson also hit the

century mark as coach.

Darfield survive

scare to beat BDI

• By Jacob Page

DARFIELD SURVIVED an

almighty scare from Burnham-

Dunsandel-Irwell to hold on

38-35 and strengthen their top

four Coleman Shield chances on

Saturday.

Darfield led 38-14 in the second

half before ill discipline and a

surging BDI eventually made a

game of it.

Competition leaders Waihora

had no trouble dispatching

Hornby 66-19 after they raced out

to a 40-0 lead at one point.

Southbridge remained in third

with a comfortable 29-7 win over

Rolleston. Meanwhile, fourthplaced

Prebbleton did enough

to ease past lowly West Melton

35-24. Springston revived their

play-off chances, as they moved

to fifth after an 18-13 win over

Lincoln which saw them leapfrog

them on the table.

The senior competition takes a

break this week as Ellesmere and

North Canterbury play across

six grades, including the annual

Southbridge Shield game at

Prebbleton.

The Ellesmere seniors will be

looking to retain the shield when

the game kicks off at 3pm on

Saturday.

Results: Waihora 66, Hornby

19; Springston 18, Lincoln 13;

BREAKAWAY: Waihora remain

unbeaten in the Coleman

Shield. Pictured is Waihora’s

Lincoln Combined taste UC top four

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN COMBINED did

their UC Championship playoff

hopes plenty of good with a 40-

21 bonus point win over Waimea

Combined at Lincoln High

School on Saturday.

It wasn’t always pretty but the

five competition points kept

them in third heading into the

fortnight school holiday break.

Lincoln made the most of

home ground advantage to score

three unanswered tries to start

the game. Wayde van Vuuren,

Wil Gualter and Hamish Turnbull

all scored to have Lincoln

Combined race out to a 19-0

advantage

Thoughts of an easy game

proved incorrect as Waimea

showed plenty of fight and Lincoln’s

ill discipline, capped with

a Gualter yellow card for a high

tackle, keeping the visitors in the

match. Once restored to 15 men

early in the second half, tries to

Cole Spinks and Gualter secured

the match and a crucial four-try

bonus point.

Coach Mike Wilson said his

team started the way they hoped

but were guilty of switching off

and not going the basics.

“I think we stopped trying to

do our jobs and tried to play too

much rugby.”

“We scored a couple of easy

tries and I’m not sure but maybe

that’s what caused us to get too

loose with things,” Wilson said.

Many of the players will go

back and play Ellesmere representative

rugby during the school

holidays. The team will next play

St Bede’s at St Bede’s College on

July 28. A win in that game will

go a long way to securing a semifinal

spot.

Lincoln Combined

Proud supporters of

Rugby & Netball in Selwyn

players called up for higher honours

Captain Wil Gualter has made the Crusader

Knights squad and blindside loosie Kenan Pluck is

in the New Zealand Maori under-18 squad. Jacob

Page reports

SCINTILLATING form and

composure under pressure has

seen Lincoln Combined captain

Wil Gualter named in the

Crusader Knights training camp

squad.

In spite of his team challenging

for a semi-final spot in the UC

Championship, he is their sole

representative in the Crusaders

region secondary school team.

Gualter has had his moments

in attack, scoring a double

against St Andrew’s a fortnight

ago, and he has also kicked two

match-winning penalties this

season.

“I think the way it is travelling,

a few of the boys deserved to

push their chances a little more,

but for me it’s a great thrill to be

picked and something that I’ll

enjoy.”

HARD WORKER:

Kenan Pluck has

been rewarded for

a stellar season

with Lincoln

Combined by being

named in the New

Zealand Maori

under-18 squad.

PHOTO: FELICITY

PLUCK ​

The 17-year-old, who has

played most of the season at

second-five said he felt 2018

would be a breakthrough season

right from the start.

“I felt last season, with a new

coaching setup and management

group, that something good was

happening,” he said.

“This year we’ve managed to

win close games and take down

some big rugby schools, and

that’s given us a lot of confidence.”

The Lincoln High School year

12 student, who is part of the

Waihora club, said the Lincoln

Combined team’s chemistry has

been a big part to their success.

“We all get on extremely

well and trainings are enjoyable

and that shows on game day

when we all work hard for each

other.” Gualter said it had been

hard not to think too far ahead

about a potential semi-final.

“It is something that we talk

about at training quite a bit,

probably more than we should,

but we know there is more hard

work to do.”

He said making the Knights

squad was an experience he

was excited about. “Being able

to match myself against players

from bigger schools is going to be

exciting.”

A squad of 25 players will be

chosen at the conclusion of the

camp at St Andrew’s College.

They will travel to Hamilton to

play the Chiefs under-18 team on

Saturday, while another Junior

Knights Development team will

play a Canterbury Invitational

XV in Christchurch tomorrow.

SELECTED: Lincoln Combined captain Wil Gualter is his

team’s only player in the Crusader Knights squad.

Pluck off to NZ Maori camp

LINCOLN COMBINED flanker

Keanan Pluck will get his first

taste of a national rugby set up

with the Maori under-18 squad.

The Rolleston teen has been

one of the best in a talented,

yet under-sized forward pack

which has helped their team

to a top four spot in the UC

Championship.

“We try to hit the rucks hard

and make an impact with what

we have,” Pluck said. He said

the team was thriving on being

considered underdogs.

“Teams turn up to our place

and think we aren’t up to much

and then we show them,” he

said.

The 17-year-old has made the

40-man squad for a three day

training camp in Rotorua from

July 16.

Pluck, who is in his second

season with the Lincoln

Combined side, but his first as

a regular starter, said he was

looking forward to getting in

touch with the Maori culture

and playing alongside some top

players.

“It’s a great experience for me

to learn and grow as a player

and since it’s my first national

squad, it’ll be good to test myself

against players from other areas

including the North Island,” he

said. Pluck started playing rugby

after an agreement with a friend

when he was 11-years-old.

“I had played soccer for a

season but then my friend said I

should try rugby and I’ve loved it

ever since,” he said.

“Mum, where

do the roads

come from?”

Backyard Critters

continuing education

Moth at the window

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology

(insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces

a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His

column aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the

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

invertebrates found at http://naturewatch.org.nz/projects/

backyard-biodiversity-bugs-in-lincoln

IN MID-JUNE a common forest looper,

pseudocoremia suavis, an endemic species

found throughout New Zealand, was

attracted to my window at night.

Adults have a wingspan of 26-34mm

and their

forewings have

variable patterns

of light and dark

brown.

The hind

wings are

pale yellow in

colour. Males

have a longer

and thinner

abdomen that

protrudes past

the wings when

resting.

Moths feed

on flower nectar

and honeydew

excreted by

scale insects.

Oval, pale green

eggs are laid on

vegetation but turn red after about three

days.

The larvae feed on a range of species,

including southern beech, kanuka,

podocarps, gorse, yew, pine and douglas

fir.

Significant defoliation sometimes

occurs on douglas fir and radiata pine.

Younger caterpillars feeding on exotic

conifers make

the needles

droop or

die, giving

a scorched

reddy-brown

appearance.

When

disturbed or

attacked by

insect predators,

the larvae can

drop down on

threads of silk.

They usually

pupate on the

ground under

litter, dead wood

or stones, but

sometimes in

branches of

trees.

Large populations can collapse

when infected by a virus. Thirteen

parasitoids have been recorded from this

species.

For the young ones there are pre-school

and junior school classes, “Take Off with

Music”, 41/2 year olds can start on Suzuki

strings and at 6 the recorder is a great

instrument to learn

Older children and

adults may opt for group

or individual lessons on

a specific instrument

(including voice). With

six orchestras, two

concert bands, a Big Band,

a jazz combo, 6 wind

ensembles, rock bands,

two choirs, chamber

groups, a samba band and

a guitar ensemble there

is an ensemble to suit all

levels and all ages.

The UC Christchurch

Youth Orchestra, CSM’s top orchestra,

generously sponsored by the University of

Canterbury Foundation, has an exciting

concert series throughout the year.

The School also runs an extensive

Outreach programme in local schools

incorporating a band programme, ukulele,

recorder and percussion teaching.

If affordability is an issue, CSM may be

able to offer a discount through funding

provided by the Rata Foundation.

Enrolments are open for Semester 2 so

please contact us via our website www.

Continuing EduCAtion

SELWYN TIMES

CWEA - More

than just a course!

The WEA opposite the Christchurch Art

Gallery on Gloucester St, has been offering

affordable adult education for over 100

years. A recent survey of participants and

tutors shows that it is about more than just

the courses it runs. Kazuko who teaches

Japanese arts and culture says “It’s my home

away from home, a home of learning”. The

homely feel and warm welcome you get

on stepping through the door indicate an

inclusive, caring culture - values which

have long been held high at the WEA. With

discussion clubs like “The Thinkers Group”,

courses on Women’s Suffrage and Armchair

travel as well as regular speaker slots called

“The Social Issues Soap Box”, a community

of learners are being encouraged to explore,

analyze and expand their horizons.

As our emerging city seeks to position

itself as progressive and forward thinking it

is clear that this centrally located education

hub has a key role to play: it gives us space

to reflect on, learn about and challenge the

world we see around us - whilst nurturing

community both in and outside the

classroom.

NZ Massage

Therapy Diplomas

by Distance Learning

The New Zealand College of Chinese

Medicine now offers both the NZ Diploma

in Wellness and Relaxation Massage Level 5

and the NZ Diploma in Remedial Massage

Level 6 on line, becoming the first private

training provider in New Zealand to offer

these qualifications nationally by Blended

Learning (Distance Learning and Block

courses). This exciting development

provides learners with choice and flexibility

about how and when they study and

enables much greater access to these NZQA

approved massage qualifications.

Both Diplomas are one-year full time

courses. Students may study part time

if they wish. The course design of both

qualifications comprises distance on line

learning modules in theory and on campus

practical block modules offered either at the

College’s Auckland campus or regionally

where numbers of enrolments justify this.

These block courses ensure students meet

the supervised practical requirements

to register as a

massage therapist

with Massage New

Zealand.

FREE digital

media course,

with NCEA built in

For those looking for a role that

combines artistic and digital talents, then

this outstanding, FREE, entry level course

has just been announced by local Training

Provider Trainme, for those wishing

to pursue animation, graphic design,

photography or digital media as a career.

The course covers introduction to

multi-media techniques such as video

production, drawing, animation and

photography. Students will create their own

design concepts and collaborate with other

students on creative projects.

This course is FREE to students aged 16

to 19 and they only have to have NCEA 1

to join. Students without NCEA 1 can be

admitted, if they show artistic or digital

aptitude.

“Many feel that school is not working for

them or they left without qualifications,”

says Rhys Pollard, Marketer with tertiary

educator Trainme. “While not necessarily

academically minded, they do have artistic

talents and are very much into digital

technology.”

“This FREE six-month Trainme course,

combines these in a very hands-on,

SELWYN TIMES

practical way, giving them an intro into

various digital media. This way, they can

decide which direction to pursue as their

career focus.”

“As an NZQA approved programme,

NCEA credits are built in, so if they apply

themselves, they can graduate with a New

Zealand Certificate in Arts and Design

Level 2, as well as gaining credits towards

NCEA level 1 or 2,” says Pollard.

“NCEA results will depend on how many

credits they bring to the course to start

with, but as it’s a fun subject, it won’t feel

like school at all.”

Successful graduates from this

programme could pathway into higher

study in media arts, which could include

graphic design, video production,

photography or one of the many emerging

digital-based careers. Places are limited, so

students are encouraged to apply as soon as

they can.

CONTRASTING COLOURS: Citrus production should be in full swing during winter. Winter flowering annuals such as primulas and azaleas should be blooming.

Tasks to tackle the winter blues

THE MIDDLE of winter is upon

us; air and soil temperatures are

low and prevailing winds make it

a challenging time in the garden.

However, it’s not all doom and

gloom with the colourful appearance

of blooming azaleas,

camellias, daphne, early flowering

rhododendrons and flowering

cherries brightening any gardening

blues.

Flower and rose gardens

Winter flowering annuals

will be at their very best in July,

with primulas, violas, pansies,

calendulas and cineraria’s in full

bloom. Regularly snip off finished

flowers (deadheading) on these

plants to encourage continual

flowering.

Your hydrangeas may be starting

to look a little worse for wear.

They grow very large and do require

heavy pruning and thinning.

Remove old wood completely as

there will be ample new growth

in spring. Make sure you cut just

above a node as it is from here that

spring growth will appear.

If you have roses, complete

your annual pruning, especially

on bush or standards that produce

flowers late into early winter

such as Iceberg. Remove all dead

and weak growth, clean out the

GET CUTTING: Hydrangeas need heavy pruning and thinning.

centre of plants and prune to

outward facing buds. Add fresh

compost to the soil around the

rose plant, but do not fertilise

until spring arrives.

Vege patch

In the vege patch, continue

planting and harvesting broccoli,

brussels sprouts, cabbages, cauliflower,

silverbeet and spinach.

Where soil conditions allow, you

can start preparing the soil for

spring planting. In late July, chop

up and dig in green manure crops

like lupins or mustard.

Spraying fruit trees

In warmer, sheltered areas,

citrus production should be in

full swing, with clementine mandarins,

lemons, limes and navel

oranges all now maturing. Check

your trees while picking fruit

for any overcrowding or weak

branches that should be removed.

Check for any rootstock growth

and prune where required. For

colder climates, use frost cloths to

protect frost-tender citrus.

Give fruit trees a second winter

clean up. Spray with a copper

compound or lime sulphur to

kill any overwintering fungal

diseases.

Berries

Prune your blackberries, boysenberries,

loganberries, or raspberries.

Cut out all old canes and

any weak spindly growth. New

season strong canes should then

be tied up on wires or fences to

help support this summer’s crop.

Finish your strawberry plantings

this month. Purchase new

plants or obtain young plants

(runners) from the previous

season strawberry plants. For

the home garden, plant at least

20 strawberry plants to ensure

plenty of fresh strawberries for

the whole family.

Incorporating show homes

in your planning process

There are many things to think about when you’re

considering building a new home.

9

Browsing show homes is a fantastic way

to get you thinking about practicalities,

needs, aesthetics and your wish list! Here

are a few consideration’s to help spark your

planning process.

• What is your exterior style? What kind

of homes do you like? Look around and

take a mental note of what you are drawn

to most.

• What kind of exterior materials do you

like? Once you’ve worked out the look

you like, research what materials are

available and find out about durability.

• How will you use your house? It’s

important to most people to have a good

indoor/outdoor flow and attractive,

sheltered outdoor living. Imagine your

home in various seasons.

• Landscaping is important. Look around

and consider what you like and don’t like.

Are you a structured formal garden type

or do you like a contemporary native

style?

• Sustainability and future-proofing

aren’t just buzzwords anymore. It’s

very important for your new home to

be environmentally friendly. Research

insulation requirements, solar hot water

heating, ventilation options and new

technology to ensure your home will be

affordable to run.

• Interior décor is really exciting. This is

where show homes can really help you get

to know current trends, colours, beautiful

furnishings and furniture. Collect home

magazines and figure out what you’d love

to emulate.

• Also, pause to give thought to

architectural components inside. Do you

remember a raised ceiling? What kind of

finishing do top homes use and which

styles are you drawn to?

• Heating is also a consideration. Have a

look at what show homes are offering.

• Kitchens form the heart of the house.

Show homes give you insight into the

latest styles, materials and storage

facilities available.

• Bathrooms are another big component.

They need to be as luxurious as you can

make them, so start dreaming.

Kitchens form the heart of

the house. Show homes

give you insight into the

latest styles, materials and

storage facilities available.

Presenting your home for sale?

The presentation of your home

doesn’t mean spending thousands

on an upgrade either! So why

wouldn’t you want to do everything

possible to make it appealing to

prospective purchasers?

Street appeal

The exterior of your home is the first

thing buyers will see, so the property

needs to look well-kept and inviting. Take

a look at your place from the street and

see it through a buyer’s eyes. So, cut the

lawns, trim trees, plants and hedges, add

some garden lights and place a nice pot or

plant by the front door. Ensure the house

exterior is cleaned or freshened with new

paint if necessary, hose down drives, paths

and fences, put stylish new numbers on

the house and perhaps buy a funky new

letter box!

Make an entrance

Even if your entrance or hallway is

small, you can still give it some wow! A

large mirror adds light and makes an

entrance look twice the size. Fresh flowers,

candles or a stylish piece of art create an

inviting first impression. Ensure floors are

clean whether timber, tiles or carpet.

Create space

Light, air and space are three key

factors in presenting a home to the

best advantage. Open up curtains

and windows and use lamps and light

fittings for mood and ambience. Arrange

furniture to maximise space and remove

items that make the room appear

cramped.

Fresh feel

Freshen rooms with new paint if

necessary, but aim for neutral tones which

are more versatile for buyers. Add a splash

of colour in cushions, throws, artwork or

a vase of flowers. Invest in a new duvet or

bedspread and always make the bed!

Clear out clutter

Storage space sells but clutter

complicates! Clean out your cupboards,

shelves and garage, and get rid of

unnecessary clutter. Buyers inspect

wardrobes and cupboards so tidy them up

and reduce the number of photos, books,

nicknacks on display – they distract

buyers, too!

Beautify the bathroom

Replace or resurface fittings if necessary,

but otherwise you can simply beautify

your bathroom with thorough and

fastidious cleaning, thick opulent towels,

a tray of beautiful soaps and some lush,

green plants. Invest in a new shower

curtain or laundry hamper, and maybe a

sleek, modern towel rail.

Clean clean clean

Cleaning is a mandatory part of

selling your home: have carpets, rugs

and upholstery commercially cleaned

and sanitised, clean drapes and blinds to

look like new, polish glass and furniture,

wash down all surfaces and fittings in

the bathroom and kitchen, clean all light

fittings, wash windows inside and out,

deodorise your home to eliminate any

odours from pets, cooking or smoke.

Outdoor spaces

Even a small patio, deck or terrace

can be enhanced with a café table and

chairs. Add some colourful accessories –

placemats, candle lamps, pots and plants,

and there you have an extra living area.

If space is not limited, hang a hammock,

string some outdoor lights, position a

garden sculpture or create a water feature

that buyers will love.

Hire a handyman

Squeaking doors, dripping taps, cracked

tiles, broken fences, leaking toilets or

appliances that don’t work are a turn-off

for buyers. If you can’t repair or replace

things yourself, then hire a handyman to

make sure everything in your home works

as it should.

Finish it first

Buyers want to see a finished home,

not one that’s still being fixed! So finish

everything before you list your home

for sale, then launch it onto the market

when it looks its absolute best – you have

nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Get your home noticed

It takes more than good photography to help sell a

home. You’ll want your home to look attractive and

appealing for a potential home buyer so check out

these following tips to get your home ready for real

estate photography and open homes...

• First impressions count: Clear away

shoes, coats and other items to make your

front entrance look clean and welcoming.

• Create natural light: Open all curtains

and/or blinds; turn on lights for open

home days.

• Keep it clean: A clean house and

well cared for section will be far more

appealing to a buyer; get rid of cobwebs;

shine the taps; polish the windows and

doorknobs; wash and vacuum the floors.

• Stay fresh: Don’t allow stale cooking

and living smells to linger – open windows

daily, display a vase of sweet smelling

flowers, and if need be an occasional spray

with a can of air freshener. Don’t burn

incense as the buyer may wonder what you

are trying to cover up.

• De-clutter every room: This is the

most important. Clean counters, tables,

coffee tables and wall units. Clutter really

attracts the eye and takes away from the

beauty of the home.

• Kitchen/Dining: Remove all

unnecessary items; keep the benches clean

and clear; remove all used tea towels and

dishcloths; use flowers to brighten up the

dining table.

• Bathroom: We all have clutter in

the bathroom – toothbrushes, creams,

toothpaste etc. Before the photographer

arrives (or potential buyers) put all the

clutter into a small box, which can easily

be stored out of sight. Place clean colour

co-ordinated towels, neatly folded, onto

the towel rail.

• Bedroom: Use colour coordinated

bedcovers and linen; plump up your

pillows; straighten the valance; put all

clothing and person items out of sight.

• Office: It’s often hard to keep this room

perfectly tidy but try to keep it as orderly

as possible.

• Keep corners free of clutter: This

helps make a room look bigger and

therefore more spacious.

• Make your room look bigger:

rearrange furniture to create more floor

space.

• Add colour: If your house is neutral

in colour, try adding small touches of

colour with fresh flowers. Another quick

color fix is to use cushions but don’t go

overboard. Red works well against neutral

backgrounds as do bright blues and

greens. Just remember to keep it minimal,

pick one colour per room, and it will work.

• Move toys out of living areas: Keep

them in the rumpus room or the children’s

bedrooms.

• Boxes or small storage units: Stack

them in one area or the spare bedroom.

Better not to take a picture of the spare

bedroom than have boxes or storage

boxes in each room. Better yet – stack

them against one wall and this way the

photographer can avoid that wall when

taking the picture.

• Check your cords, cables and wires:

Tuck and hide those cords away or simply

unplug them.

• Keep pets out of sight: Prospective

buyers don’t want pets leaping at them

or they may be even allergic to pet hair,

so keep them out of sight or away for

photography and open home days.

• Clean up your section and garage:

Keep lawns mowed, gardens weeded, hoses

and wheelbarrow stored out of sight; take

excess rubbish to the tip; and arrange your

garage to look as spacious and orderly as

possible.

Don’t burn incense as the

buyer may wonder what you

are trying to cover up.
