Little Lexi is a

real water baby

Little Lexi Miller might only be 11-months-old but already she loves going to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre with her mother

Brooke Cleaver. Miss Cleaver says her daughter is quite the “water baby.” “We actually did lessons there last term because

she loves it so much,” she said. Miss Cleaver said it’s likely Lexi developed her love for water from her nine-year-old brother

Kayden.

Former

mayor

slams

into

cow at

100km/h

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FORMER MAYOR Bill Woods

and his two passengers were lucky

to escape serious injury after his

Mercedes-Benz, travelling at about

100km/h, collided with a cow.

Mr Woods was returning to

Springfield from Christchurch

Aiport at 1am on Thursday when

he hit the cow in the middle of Old

West Coast Rd near Waddington.

His Mercedes-Benz B200 was

moderately damaged, he and his

passengers, Keith and Helen Taege,

of Sheffield, escaped injury. He had

picked them up from the airport.

The cow was killed.

Mr Woods said the air bags did

not activate, which in hindsight

was lucky. After striking the cow,

his vehicle veered towards a power

pole which he was able to avoid.

The car came to a stop at the side of

the road.

If the air bags had inflated he

would not have been able to see the

power pole, he said.

THERE’S A danger that lurks in the

darkness on our roads late at night -

wandering stock.

Former Mayor Bill Woods and his passengers

(see page 1) can count themselves

very lucky.

He struck a cow on the way home from the airport in the

early hours of Thursday morning.

Bill says he rear ended it at about 100 km/h. If he had hit it

broadside the damage to the car and those inside would have

been very serious.

And luck was even more on their side because the airbags

didn’t activate.

After hitting the cow, Bill’s Mercedes headed straight towards

a power pole he was able to avoid.

If the airbags had deflated he wouldn’t have seen the pole.

Consultation starts

over intensive farming rules

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SWEEPING changes could be

brought in to regulate intensive

farming rules in the district.

The district council wants to

make a new definition in the

district plan to ensure intensive

farming is defined as a commercial

activity which mainly

occurs indoors.

The new district plan is estimated

to become operative in

March 2022.

Currently intensive farming

is not clearly defined, making

consenting requirements ambiguous.

Several issues have been identified

with intensive farmingrelated

rules in the current

district plan.

Issues are the duplication of

process between district and regional

councils over air quality,

and free-range poultry activities

being permitted by ECan but requiring

a resource consent from

the district council.

Another problem is if an

intensive farm operator wants

to establish a residential dwelling

on their property, they are

required to apply for resource

ANALYSED: The district council is asking for residents’ views

on intensive farming rules as it begins to assemble the new

district plan. ​

consent if the dwelling is located

within 300m of the intensive

farming operation.

This is even if they are the

owners of the operation.

It comes as Selwyn is home

to the highest number of pork

producers in the country,

although not the largest volume

produced.

It has about 19 per cent of the

approximately 22 per cent of the

domestic production.

This farming activity in the

district makes up a significant

proportion of the returns generated

for the local economy $750

million to $900 million per annum

industry.

The district council is encouraging

residents to take part in

the survey on the draft changes

it recently endorsed for further

development on intensive farming

rules.

Residents will be asked for

their views on ECan being solely

responsible for monitoring air

discharges from an intensive

farm and what rules should be

introduced to permit intensive

farming.

They will also be asked what

the setback between a new

residential development and

an intensive farming activity

should be.

District councillor Pat McEvedy

said the district plan is very

much in its early stages and it is

sorting through what the district

council’s preferred options are as

part of the consultation.

DRIVING CHARGES

A motorist who hit a parked

vehicle before rolling the van

he was driving, was more than

twice the legal limit on Friday.

Constable Herb Inwood said

the 29-year-old man drifted

to the left before crashing into

the parked vehicle on High St,

Leeston. The man’s recorded

breath alcohol reading was just

over 500mcg/l. The legal limit is

250mcg/l. Constable Inwood said

the damage to both vehicles was

“quite significant,” however, the

man did not sustain any injuries.

The man will appear in the

Christchurch District Court in

early August.

SPRINGFIELD HOUSE FIRE

A house was destroyed by fire

in Springfield’s Dalethorpe Rd

last week. Fire risk management

officer and specialist fire

investigator Wayne Hamilton said

no one was home at the time and

the fire “burnt itself out.” He said

the damage was discovered by

the owners the following day. Mr

Hamilton said the owners rung

Cattle to be

included at

A&P show

• By David Hill

CATTLE CLASSES will

be included in November’s

Canterbury A&P Show.

More than 50 cattle breeders

and show staff attended an

exhibitors meeting recently, with

the majority indicating they were

willing to exhibit stock at The

New Zealand Agricultural Show

2018.

It comes as Leeston’s Ellesmere

A&P Show isn’t taking cattle

entries for its October event,

in a bid to prevent the risk of

spreading mycoplasma bovis any

further.

Canterbury A&P Show staff

said they were exploring measures

to limit the risk of mycoplasma

bovis contamination.

Event director Geoff Bone said

he was confident cattle would

be exhibited at the Canterbury

A&P Show and many international

shows have continued to

run successful cattle sections,

in spite of the presence of the

cattle disease. The cattle committee

was scheduled to meet last

Wednesday to set up protocols to

reduce the risk of contamination,

which included having gaps between

the pens of different stud

breeders.

Straw idea earns recognition

• By Emily O’Connell

A LINCOLN family with a

vision to make the town plastic

straw-free by 2020 have been

nominated for three Selwyn

Awards.

Eight-year-old Tui, 10-year-old

Mana and father Nathan Martin

started their business Plastic

Straws Suck late last year.

The idea for the business came

from a project the children were

doing at school.

Mr Martin said Tui came

home and asked what was going

on with the world’s plastic use.

“I gave her a choice on doing

something and we chose plastic

straws because it was something

that was achievable,” he said.

The family then starting selling

packs of four stainless steel

straws and a pipe cleaner for $20

as an alternative.

They have also been spreading

the word about the harm caused

by plastic to businesses and residents

in the community.

Now the trio are up for

Environmental, Innovation

Excellence and People’s Choice

awards at this year’s Selwyn

Awards.

The biennial awards are

presented to individuals and

organisations who live or work

in the district to honour outstanding

work or inspirational

achievements.

Mr Martin said they were

“pretty stoked” with the nominations.

He said the business teaches

Tui and Mana about environmental

awareness, sustainability

and entrepreneurship.

“The intent was always create

something that gave back . . .

25 per cent of our profits goes

towards an organisation of our

SELWYN TIMES

customers choosing,” Mr Martin

said.

He thinks coffee chain Starbucks’

recent decision to go plastic

straw-free by 2020 is “great,”

however, he says its alternative,

paper or compostable straws,

does have its problems.

“The thing with compostable

straws is that it’s very similar to

a plastic straw, that’s just in my

opinion, because what happens

is compostable straws are only

useful if they’re in a recycling

programme,” Mr Martin said.

Guilty plea over dog park crash

MORE DETAILS have emerged

over the crazy driving of a

convicted killer who came to a

stop after crashing into a dog

park.

John Oliver Jamieson, 31, is

likely to return to prison after

the high speed chase on Saturday,

June 2, south of Christchurch.

Jamieson (left) pleaded guilty

in the district

court last week

to a series of

charges. He had

been charged

with driving

dangerously, driving while

disqualified, failing to stop

for police, driving recklessly,

driving carelessly, and unlawful

possession of a pistol – a sawn

off .22 rifle – which was found in

the crashed vehicle.

Judge Tony Couch ruled out

home detention as a possible

sentencing option and remanded

him custody until sentencing

on July 26.

The court heard Jamieson

drove north on State Highway 1

towards Burnham, at 180km/h

while overtaking other cars in

a passing lane. Police followed

him with their sirens and lights

on, but he crossed the double

yellow lines into the southbound

lane to overtake other

north-bound cars.

He remained on the wrong

side of the road until the end of

the passing lane, still travelling

at high speed. He turned too fast

into Rolleston’s Tennyson St,

and went off the road, across the

grassed area of the BP service

station, and narrowly missed the

KFC sign, before going back on

the road.

At the junction with Lowes

Rd he drove onto the wrong

side of the road again, around a

roundabout the wrong way, hit

another car causing minor damage,

before leaving the road and

crashing into the Rolleston dog

park fence.

A fence post speared through

the windscreen, narrowly missing

a woman who had been in

the passenger seat.

Jamieson left the vehicle but

was soon caught by following

police.

During last week’s appearance

Judge Couch asked for the case

to be referred for a possible restorative

justice meeting between

Jamieson and the district council,

who own the dog park fence, and

face a $1035 repair bill.

chairman Jens Christensen told

the Selwyn Times on Thursday

he hadn’t heard about any restorative

justice meeting.

“I wouldn’t see a point to be

honest, we’re not that badly affected

. . . we’ve asked for reparation,”

he said.

Jamieson was jailed in 2009

for nine years for manslaughter

for the death of Wayne Kerry

Bray, who was kicked to death in

a group street assault in Timaru

the previous year.

He was also found guilty last

year of threatening to chop his

wife’s head off during an argument

over the telephone.

MYSTERIOUS SOCKS

Socks placed into a fire box at

the Springfield Hotel prompted

a fire call out last week. Owner

Pete Richardson said someone

had thrown their socks into the

fire box, which he reloaded with

timber before it was to be lit later

in the evening. Mr Richardson

said there were no ashes in

the timber. But when he went

outside, due to the direction

of wind, it looked as if smoke

was coming out of the roof. The

incident happened at 12.26pm

on Thursday. Springfield and

Sheffield volunteer brigades

attended. Springfield deputy

chief fire officer Ann Shepherd

said services checked the top

floor and ceiling cavity, but there

was no sign of fire. She said it

was very confusing and no one

knew what was happening.

There was no damage.

GREENPARK HUT FIRE

Fire investigators are still not

been able to determine the cause

of a blaze which destroyed a hut

in Greenpark in the early hours

of July 1. Lincoln chief fire officer

Jeremy Greenwood said units

from Lincoln and Rolleston

attened the “well involved fire.”

It took firefighters two hours to

contain the blaze. No-one was in

the hut at the time.

Council in process of

selling Darfield houses

final week!

• By Georgia O’Connor-

DISTRICT council-owned

houses in Darfield, some

previously contaminated

from methamphetamine,

are in the process of being

sold.

Houses 11

and 13 Ritso

St have been

sold while 5,

7 and 9 have

condition

John

agreements

for sale in

place and

confirmation of the conditions

are still pending.

The properties have been

sold as residential dwellings.

It cost the district council

more than $40,000 to

decontaminate dwellings

1, 7 and 11 of Ritso St.

Insurance met about

$30,000 of the bill, the

district council the rest.

Two houses – 1 and

3 Ritso St – have been

retained by the council because

year.

The South Tce site

will then be available for

SELLING: 7 Ritso St is one of three houses to be

decontaminated as a result of meth use and is in

the process of being sold by the district council.

Ritso St could then be

developed.

District councillor John

Morten said the houses

have been retained by the

district council because it

is unknown who the new

tenant will be.

He said if a tenant

wanted a larger site than

the Darfield Sicon to build

on, the Ritso St houses

would be available for the

expansion.

A section of land on 15

Ritso St has not sold and

will be revalued and reoffered

to Ngai Tahu.

Selwyn Times previously

reported residents were

concerned money from the

sales would not go back to

the Malvern community.

From the income of

the sales $347,000 will go

towards reducing the community’s

loan in relation to

McHughs Forest Park.

When the houses

were initially bought the

district council agreed to

acknowledge the value that

the Darfield community

had invested as part of a

land exchange proposal.

In the early 2000s, the

district council proposed a

reserve exchange to enable

the reserve status the

houses were formerly on

to be lifted and the land to

become freehold.

Reducing the community’s

loan on McHughs

Forest Park was part of the

agreement.

Comedy comes to Kirwee

Former mayor’s

car collides

with cow

•From page 1

Mr Woods will be

making inquiries as to

why the air bags did not

activate.

He swerved to try and

avoid the cow.

“If I had hit it square

on . . . it (car) would have

been a real crumpled

mess,” he said.

A WICKED comedy

will be brought to life by

community theatre group

Kirwee Players.

The Witches of Eastwick

will be performed at the

next month.

The musical, based on

the novel of the same name

by American novelist John

Updike, is a comedy set

in a typical small town,

where gossip is rife about

three witches.

All three women desire

for “all manner of man in

one man” to bring excitement

into their life.

The man arrives in the

devil- like form of Darryl

Van Horne who seduces

the women and teaches

them powers.

But the witches soon

begin to realise the man

is dangerous and sinister

and they must use their

newly -found powers to get

rid of him.

The show is lead by

Glen Clark as Darryl Van

Horne, Kelsea Nelson-

Cummins as Alexandra,

Vanessa Simmonds as Jane

and Izzy Tocker as Sukie.

It features a 23 -strong

cast.

Established in 1977,

Kirwee Players has a long

history of providing shows

in the Selwyn area.

The group focuses on

community theatre, allowing

affordable access to

the arts, opportunities for

anyone to be involved.

Taking the plunge to become

are among the growing

number of immigrants

living in the district who

are set become New

Zealand citizens. Emily

O’Connell reports

MR AND Mrs Harbuck will

become bona fide Kiwis at a

ceremony next month.

Mr Harbuck migrated from

the United States to New Zealand

with his German-born wife

in 2012, eventually ending up in

Rolleston last year.

They are among a growing

number of immigrants in the

district who are becoming

citizens. Mrs Harbuck said there

were a number of reasons behind

their move to New Zealand.

“Our kids were grown up and

we were living the typical American

lifestyle – lots of money but

lots of hours and no time for

family and no lifestyle,” she said.

After living in Tokoroa for

five years, Mr and Mrs Harbuck

decided to move to Rolleston.

“We chose settling in Rolleston

because we saw a vibrant community

that provided a quality

lifestyle for us,” Mrs Harbuck

said.

As well as the community, she

market” for their business Wet

Feet Dry Feet Travel.

Mrs Harbuck, who runs the

business with her husband, said

the Selwyn Business Group has

been “incredible.”

“Just really nice people all

around,” she said.

Mrs Harbuck said the process

of becoming a citizen has been

“very straight-forward.”

“This is home for us now and

we want to be here 100 per cent

with everything that means.

We enjoy the Kiwi people, the

culture,” she said.

In the past year, more than 370

people from around the globe

living in Selwyn have become

New Zealand citizens.

They come from 40 different

countries across the world.

The countries

providing

the most new

arrivals were

the United

Kingdom with

136, South

Africa with 45,

the Philippines

A LINCOLN business has a new

owner.

Hiren Amin, 33, took over

the running of the NZ Post &

Kiwibank operation last week.

He said the previous owners,

Pritpal and Simran Anand, have

moved to Auckland to be closer

to their son after eight years of

running the business in Lincoln.

Mr Amin also made the move

to Lincoln from Sydenham last

week, so he can be part of the

community.

It’s not his first time running

a business, Mr Amin owned a

transport company in India,

before moving to New Zealand

in 2013.

After studying business

management in Invercargill, Mr

Amin moved to Christchurch in

late 2013.

Owning the store was the next

step for Mr Amin, who has been

working in the Northwood Post

Shop at the Northwood Supa

Centre for the past three years.

He said the move to Lincoln

was “quite exciting” as it’s a “really

nice community” of people

who are always willing to help.

He said in a couple of months

he may extend the store hours

favourite fashion store

Viva la Moda

introduces new owner Robyn McKenzie

A passion for good quality clothing

has lead Viva La Moda’s new

owner Robyn McKenzie to follow

her dream.

Robyn, who also owns Dear No

One, a clothing store in Merivale,

recently took ownership of the

popular women’s clothing store in

Rolleston Square.

Robyn lives locally in Rolleston and

is excited to be running one of

her “most favourite shops in the

world.”

As part of her takeover, Robyn

is planning an introduction

evening for both new and current

customers with bubbly and on-thenight

promotions.

“Nothing will initially change,”

says Robyn. “Customers can still

expect the same friendly, quality

service as before, along with

a wide choice of clothing and

accessories available both in-store

and online.”

Viva La Moda offers a full range

of women’s clothing suitable

for all seasons including casual,

work, day, special occasion and

evening wear, plus a huge range

of accessories.

“Whatever your event, we can

dress and coordinate you from top

to toe,” says Robyn. Accessories

include a choice of scarves, belts,

hats, handbags, shoes, watches

and jewellery.

Robyn loves colour too and

believes colour is what sets the

store apart.

“We don’t just stock black and

greys; we offer a range of bright

colours to suit your wardrobe

palette.”

Customers can continue to use

their existing loyalty cards as

before, and if they can’t get

into the store, shopping online

at Viva La Moda means they

can still access the

full clothing and

accessory range,

which can

be shipped

around New

Zealand

from $5.99.

Robyn

adds that

she will

soon be

giving the

online store

a fresh, new

look.

labels including Elm, Libertine, Sass,

Olga Berg, Dolce Vita, Sabatini

and many more. Visit the store or

Taking aim at poor drivers

District

councillor

Mark

Alexander

writes

about

poor

driving and what

needs to change

AS I travel around the

district, I regularly see

drivers ignoring stop signs,

red traffic lights, speeding,

following too close and

so on. So what you might

think? It doesn’t matter, no

harm done.

Familiarity does seem to

breed contempt. At many

intersections, drivers are

frequently able to ignore

the stop sign, slowing not

stopping before entering

the intersection or not

even slowing. Generally it

isn’t visiting drivers who

are at fault. It is our local

drivers, ourselves, our

family and our neighbours

who are regularly putting

themselves and others at

risk.

Individually, we may get

away with our bad driving

habits, but collectively

our community doesn’t.

We have a terrible rate of

intersection crashes. That’s

• Four people per class or

less for more one on one

attention.

• Learn the synergy of

spices, sauces and taste

combinations that will make

your dishes your own.

• Morning classes where you

will eat your creations for

lunch or evening classes for a

light supper.

• $100 per person, everything

convenience.

crashes not accidents, as

many are the result of poor

driver choices rather than

genuine accidents.

Poor driving costs our

community. Many of the

emergency service personnel

who attend road crashes

in our district are volunteers.

Those volunteers

take time off from their

own lives, their jobs, their

families to help others in

their time of need. We

should acknowledge their

selfless dedication to our

community. We should

recognise that preventable

crashes have an impact on

the lives of our volunteers

in the community.

As a district councillor,

I am often asked “what is

the district council going

to do about a perceived accident

black spot?” Where

there is a genuine road

safety issue, the district

council will address the

problem. It is hard, if not

impossible, to provide

an engineering solution

for bad driving and bad

drivers.

I can see the letters to

the editor saying that it

isn’t the driver’s fault,

that it is the state of our

roads, the design of our

intersections, the width of

our roads and possibly the

weather. I agree that our

roads may not be perfect,

but that’s not an excuse for

bad driving.

Driving to the conditions

will help with many

of these issues. Speed

limits are not targets. Allowing

more time for your

journey will mean you can

drive to the conditions not

the limits. Stopping at stop

signs won’t significantly

delay your journey. Planning

to drive safely will

benefit everyone.

West Melton teen off to Uganda

• By Emily O’Connell

WEST MELTON’S Lauryn

Sinclair is raising funds to

help finish building a school in

Uganda.

The 18-year-old volunteers for

Purpose Projects – a non-governmental

organisation which

goes to developing countries to

help with specific, achievable

projects.

Miss Sinclair, who is in her

first year of studying law at

Canterbury University, says the

organisation

focuses on

transparency.

“All the

money we

raise actually

goes into the

community in

like a sustainable

way,” she

Lauryn Sinclair

said.

Miss

Sinclair will travel to Kkoba,

Uganda, in January for a month

where she will be involved with

the school build, as well as other

community projects.

Once completed, about 1000

children will attend the school.

“It’s already partially built because

we’ve had volunteers from

different organisations in the

past go and they’ve done little

bits of work over a long period

of time,” Miss Sinclair said.

But before she can go, Miss

Sinclair needs to raise $2500

for the different community

projects. It’s not her first time

volunteering overseas – she was

in World Challenge while she

was at high school.

“It’s an organisation which

takes schools on trips to parts

of the developing world so I

went to India for a month . . .

the volunteer part was definitely

the highlight of the trip,” Miss

Sinclair said.

Although it’s “not always

easy,” she’s really looking

forward to travelling to

Uganda and helping out a

community.

Mobile tech shows Lincoln

kids how their guts work

• By Emily O’Connell

LINCOLN children are being

taught about what’s inside their

gut through a new mobile app.

The app uses augmented

reality to bring the microbes

that live in the gut to life for

primary school children.

Moving Pixel Ltd,

teamed up with

professor Gerald

Augmented reality is a

technology that superimposes a

computer-generated image on a

user’s view of the real world via

the camera on a mobile device.

Prof Tannock, who commissioned

the project, wanted to get

eight to 12-year-olds enthusiastic

about microbes.

“There are 20 trillion microbes

living in our bodies –

that’s at least as many as there

are cells. These organisms are

fascinating and so important

to our health. But it was a real

concept to children and

inspire them to learn more,” he

said.

By downloading the free app

Scope X to a mobile device and

using it to view a printed sheet,

users can see stories and activities

about common microbes

that reside in the gut and see

them interact as characters.

Lincoln Primary School pupils

were the first to test out the

new app.

Mr Martin visited the school

to see how the children reacted

to the technology.

“They were super stoked . . .

there’s also a hidden experience

that the kids find and basically

what it is is on the flip-side of

this character if you push the

buttocks a fart comes out,” he

said.

Prof Tannock hopes schools

across the country make the

most of the resource. “I didn’t

really know what AR was, or

how it could help teach about

microbiota . . . now I can see

its educational potential,” he

said.

SPACE: Springfield School’s new multi-purpose room includes

SPRINGFIELD SCHOOL has

opened its new multi-purpose

room.

Invited guests, pupils, teachers

and parents gathered to celebrate

the new addition to the school.

Mayor Sam Broughton officially

opened the new building,

cutting the ribbon with help

from the youngest and oldest

pupils at the school.

Principal Judith Beales said the

school has been looking forward

to having the extra space and

facilities.

“It provides us with a muchneeded

kitchen area for cooking

and a large break-out space for

all sorts of activities,” she said.

Each member of the senior

class spoke about how pupils will

benefit from the new room.

Planning for the room started

four years ago with a Malvern

apron fundraiser.

Since then, there has been a

large effort behind the scenes

by parents and the board of

trustees to fundraise, find a

suitable building, relocate it

and then refurbish the room

on-site.

The school would like to thank

Fiona Davidson for leading the

fundraising and grant writing, as

well as Pam and Pete Aldersley

for managing the relocation

and refurbishment of the

building.

“We’ve sold around 2500

aprons . . . special thanks must

go to Rosalie Mason at Mason’s

Drapery who has sold countless

aprons and tea towels on behalf

of our school,” Mrs Davidson

said.

The school would also like

to thank the Rata Foundation,

CERT and the Four Winds

Foundation for making grants

towards the project.

Prebbleton School pupils took home several awards at

Nigel Lilley

From selling groceries to fighting fires

Rolleston chief fire

officer Nigel Lilley

talks to Emily O’Connell

about his role, why

he joined the brigade

and what his most

memorable call out

has been

When did you join the

brigade?

March 3, 1998.

Why did you join?

I’ve always wanted to from

childhood.

Did you have any family

members or people you

knew who were part of the

brigade?

Not really. Rolleston back

then was a small community so

everyone knew everyone.

What about the brigade

initially interested you?

The fire truck, I suppose.

How did you feel when you

attended your first call-out and

what was it?

It was a medical incident.

I was extremely nervous as I

had no idea what to do. I can’t

remember what happened to be

honest, it wouldn’t have been

a serious one or I would have

remembered.

What type of training did

you get before joining the

brigade?

None. We learnt as went.

When did that change?

Not long after I joined, to be

fair.

What has been the most

memorable call-out you’ve been

to and why?

A fatal car v train on a

Christmas Eve. There was a huge

teddy bear on the back seat. I

knew some kid wasn’t getting

that for Christmas, I also knew

that he also wasn’t getting his

father for Christmas.

What’s the biggest lesson

you’ve learnt through being in

the brigade?

Embrace your team. Be proud

of them. I can’t do it without

them.

What’s the most dangerous

thing you’ve done in the

brigade?

I’d have to say probably some

of the larger vegetation fires pose

significant danger to us, not that

we take risks.

What would be the happiest

memory you’ve had during

your time in the brigade?

I spent eight or nine years on

the board of the United Fire

Brigades’ Association which is

like the national collective for

pretty much every firefighter.

As a part of that, I was the chair

of the challenges committee

which involved the governance

and running of all the fire

competitions, like the drivers

challenge, the road crash rescue

challenge and the toughest

firefighter challenge. That was

hugely satisfying and did get a

lot of stuff across the line with

them, because all the volunteers

are funded along to them, it’s a

great reward for them.

Is the Rolleston Volunteer

Fire Brigade still the biggest

brigade?

Certainly one of. It has 40 at

present, with a huge waiting list.

What do you think makes it

so popular?

The population of Rolleston

and we always get a big influx

of people asking about joining

after a big event like the Port

Hills fire or something like that,

something that’s really been in

the public space. Certainly after

the earthquakes there were a lot

of people who emailed.

How many call-outs do the

Rolleston volunteers go to on

average per year?

On average 650, I guess. It’s a

lot more than when I first joined,

it was only about 100.

Do you think the call-outs

will keep increasing in the

future?

No, it’s flattened out now. It’s

not really the population that’s

driving it because new houses

have safer building codes so they

don’t catch fire. Motor vehicle

accidents are increasing slightly,

that’s just because of more

traffic, I guess.

Your wife, Sarah, is also part

of the brigade. Is that how you

met her?

No, I met her in the pub.

What did you do for work

after finishing high school?

I worked at Placemakers and

Transport Wholesale Ltd.

What do you think the future

of the Rolleston Volunteer Fire

Brigade will be like?

Rolleston’s

officer Nigel

volunteered

for the

20 years.

I don’t know, there is land over

We’re certainly in a plan for a

new station. When it became

Fire and Emergency New

Zealand from the old fire service

it changed and it’s changed for

the better, especially for the

volunteers.

Do you have any fears,

considering what you do?

I’d have to say no because

when it all happens and the

adrenalin kicks in, you don’t

really think about that sort of

stuff until well afterwards and

then you think: ‘What the hell

did I do that for?’

When do you think you’ll

leave the brigade?

I hope to be there for a while

longer but I won’t be the chief

to someone else to have a go at.

No idea when.

– all in a day’s work

Have you always lived in

Rolleston?

Yes.

What schools did you go to?

I went to Rolleston School

and St Thomas of Canterbury

College.

When you’re not working,

what does a day off look like for

you?

I couldn’t tell you the last

time that happened. If I’m

not working I’m tied up with

some sort of fire and emergency

event.

What are some of your

hobbies?

I really don’t have the time to

have any, sadly.

Is being the chief fire officer

your full-time job?

No, it’s voluntary.

​Other than volunteering,

what else do you have going

on?

I’ve now taken over the

Rolleston Dairy, and rebranded

it as an On The Spot franchise

store. I also work two days a

week in Wellington for Fire and

Emergency New Zealand on a

new volunteer initiative.

​When did you take over the

dairy?

January 22.

How’s it been going?

Fantastic.

What have you learnt from

owning the dairy, had you

owned one before?

No, but look, it’s hospitality

in a sense and I’ve been doing

that for 20 years at the pub.

It’s just all about customer

service.

Was the pub you worked at

The Rolly Inn?

Yes, I was there for 20 years.

What was your job at The

Rolly Inn?

The manager.

Can you tell me about your

role at the Wellington for Fire

and Emergency New Zealand?

It’s a new initiative, I’m the

product or business owner if

you like, that’s what they call it.

It’s a computer-based system,

an availability system, so the

volunteers know at any time

who is around and who is

able to respond. It’s all done

through apps on your phone and

GPS.

How long have you been

doing that for?

Only a month, so far.

How are you finding it?

Fantastic. Just being able to

create something that’s going

to make the volunteers’ lives

easier, it’s great. It’s only meant

to be for six months but I can

see it going for a whole lot longer

than that.

SELWYN TIMES

With the second week of school holidays now well under way, more than 50 KidsFest events will

be held around Selwyn by the end of the week.

Dozens of events have already taken place across the district, with kids enjoying a broad range

of activities.

Senior Events and Recreation Advisor, Dave Tippett says the organisers are delighted with how

KidsFest has gone so far.

“Contributing to a holiday programme reaching across the district provides plenty of

entertainment during the cooler months, and participation this year has been fantastic,” he says.

Mr Tippett says with events ranging from discomania to parkour and film making, there’s

something for everyone.

“We’ve worked hard to create a wide range of activities, and our feedback so far has been

extremely positive with kids going home happy after attending KidsFest events.

“We had a number of events sell out quickly, which was great to see, and it shows KidsFest in

Selwyn is as popular as ever.”

Mr Tippett says it has been encouraging that event organisers have continued to support

KidsFest with events and activities for the kids of Selwyn.

“We are really proud of everyone in Selwyn who is involved with delivering KidsFest.”

While there’s only a few days left, there are still a number of activities with spaces left if you are

searching for something to do over the last few days of the holidays.

Some of the most popular venues have been the district’s libraries, hosting a range of activities.

School road safety

WEEK

Saturday 9 – Saturday

ONE

23 July 2016

Selwyn District Council is asking drivers to stay alert for children as schools return next week.

Nearly 10,000 Selwyn children will be travelling to school next week following their two week

holiday break.

Many of these young people will be getting off and on school buses, in and out of cars and walking,

biking and scooting to and from school.

It’s important for road users to remember the only time drivers must stop for pedestrians is on a

pedestrian (zebra) crossing, at a school road patrol or kea crossing when the stop lollipops are out,

and when pedestrians have a green man at traffic signals.

Key tips for children and parents getting ready for term three include:

· Be bright be seen on your way to school, ask your school for a safety vest.

· Tackle the routes with your child talking about sneaky driveways and blind corners.

· Get out and active together to reduce the chaos at the school gate.

· Wear your helmets, this goes for caregivers too, young people are watching you!

Road safety educational resources for parents and children are available from Selwyn District Council.

Email stephanie.hautler@selwyn.govt.nz or phone 347 2705.

Careful what you flush

Selwyn District Council is reminding residents to limit what they flush

down the toilet to the three Ps.

Only three things should disappear after the button is pressed - pee,

poo and (toilet) paper.

Flushing items other than the three Ps costs a substantial amount

each year, in unclogging blockages, and repairs.

A major issue has been the use of products often described as

‘flushable’ wet wipes.

Assets Manager Murray Washington says despite the product name

and description, these products don’t break down in the system

and cause frequent blockages.

“While we understand wet wipes have become popular we want the

public to throw them out instead of flushing them.

“Flushing the wipes causes a lot of damage to our systems, as they

are not biodegradable.”

A wide range of products regularly cause headaches for the team at

Selwyn District Council, after finding the remains in sewer systems.

They’ve included:

· latex products like gloves and condoms

· wet wipes

· feminine hygiene products

· paper towels, napkins, tissues, nursing pads, cloth, clothing

and rags

· fats, grease and oil

· sticky plasters, dressings, cotton balls, cotton buds or dental floss

· hair, plastic wrappers, cigarette butts or syringes

These items don’t break down or dissolve in water and can cause

major blockages in pumps and within the sewer network itself.

Mr Washington says last year the Council spent around $50,000 to

clean out sewer pump stations that became clogged.

He says most sewer pipes are only 10–20 centimetres in diameter

and aren’t designed to carry the range of products we have found

clogging our systems.

Over half of the blockages found in the Selwyn system are caused

by wet wipes.

LINCOLN’S WAYNE Rollinson

believes his national swimming

award is a testament to everyone

in his organisation.

THe chairman of the

Swimming Canterbury West

Coast earned the Swimming

New Zealand volunteer of the

year award in Auckland last

week.

“You certainly don’t get into

this sort of thing for recognition

like this but it reflects the hard

work of everyone within our

organisation,” he said.

Mr Rollinson has been

involved with the organisation

since 2007 and chairman since

2011.

“My focus at the time was

more about rugby but my three

kids all swam at that time and

I looked at it like many parents

probably do in terms of how I

could give back to the sport,” he

said.

“I’ve always wanted to give

back to a sport in some way and

I felt the time was right.

He said, while swimming

numbers have been on the

increase for many years, the

February 22, 2011, earthquake

changed his role as the head of

SCWC in an instant.

“I learnt a lot about swimming

in the region in a short space of

time,” he said.

Mr Rollinson said the prospect

of a 50m pool in the Metro

Sports Facility as well as the

emergence of the QE II pool and

developments in Linwood, would

make swimming more accessible

and more affordable.

“THere is a financial strain on

parents at the moment getting to

and from events,” he said.

“Even getting to regional

events like South Island meets

is an added cost at this point

because we’re having to go to

Nelson or Invercargill.”

Rollinson said the emergence

of top swimmers like Hannah

Bates, Sophie Pascoe, Celyn and

Ieuan Edwards, had pleased

him immensely because they’d

done it in their home pools in

Christchurch.

“THere’s a perception that to

make it (internationally) that you

need to go to Auckland and we’re

producing swimmers in our

facilities.

Mr Rollinson has 12 months in

his role before his term finishes

and he is eager to ensure the

Metro Sports Facility, which

is scheduled for 2021 will

deliver an impressive space for

swimmers to excel.

“I really think with the Metro,

we’ll have a facility that other

areas are envious of and will

make them want to travel to

compete here,” he said.

Bates in the medals

at swim champs

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN SWIMMER Hannah

Bates has made the New Zealand

team for the junior Pan Pacific

championships in Fiji next

month.

Her selection comes after a

successful national championship

campaigns last week in

Auckland which was capped-off

by her winning emerging swimmer

of the year at the Swimming

New Zealand annual awards.

Celyn Edwards, from the

Selwyn Swim Club, also won

three national titles.

Edwards will be part of the

nine-strong Kiwi team to race at

the Pan Pacific para-swimming

championships in Cairns next

month.

Bates said she was thrilled

to win medals in her first open

nationals event.

“It was a big step up from

what I’m used to, racing against

swimmers who have gone to

international events and, while

I didn’t post any personal bests,

I’m happy with what I achieved,”

she said.

“Winning the (emerging

swimmer) award just topped the

week off for me,” she said. “I was

not expecting to win it so I was

blown away when I did.”

Bates, representing

heats, finishing in 1min 10.61sec

to meet the selection criteria

for both the junior Pan Pacific

Bates backed this up in the

final to take home bronze in the

event. She went on to also win

Edwards won two golds on the

opening night of the national

championship. The Selwyn club

member won the 50m backstroke

and 400m freestyle para

Southbridge Shield goes

back to North Canterbury

• By Jacob Page

ELLESMERE’S time with

the Southbridge Shield was

brief as North Canterbury

won it back 36-29 in their

annual rugby encounter

at Prebbleton Oval on

Saturday.

Ellesmere won the trophy

in 2017 but handed it

straight back after a match

where they were always

playing catch-up.

A 21-point haul from

North Canterbury’s

Brook Retallick, older

brother of All Black lock,

Brodie, was essentially the

difference with the pivot

scoring two intercept tries

and kicking a penalty and

four conversions.

The result mirrored

North Canterbury’s dominance,

with the visitors

claiming four of the six

matches played across the

grades.

Ellesmere’s two victories

came from the under-18s

who won the McGiffert

Trophy with a 28-21 win

and the under-65kg team

which triumphed 40-20.

The Ellesmere seniors

were constantly chasing

the game, trailing 22-7 just

before half-time.

Utility back Alex Parker’s

second try of the game

cut the margin to seven

with 10min to play but

poor set-piece execution,

particularly at line-out

time cost Ellesmere any

chance of a draw to retain

the shield.

Mekene magic in Lincoln Uni win

• By Jim Doyle

SYDENHAM AND Lincoln

University will play each other

for the second time in a row this

Saturday in the Hawkins Trophy

semi-finals.

The magic of Caleb Makene

and the momentum of Ben

Morris helped thrust Lincoln

University to a 34-17 win over

Sydenham in the last round of

section play for the Hawkins

Trophy on Saturday. The Rams

finished top of the section and

will host the semi-final.

Lincoln co-captains Makene

and Morris were standouts

but they would be the first to

acknowledge the contribution of

Sam Gilbert.

The young fullback played a

key part in the first try, scored by

Jesse Houston, powered his way

through for his own try after half

an hour, and kicked perfectly at

goal. Two of his conversions were

from hard on the touchline.

Gilbert took a hammering as

he defended staunchly but kept

getting up for more.

The Rams were still in danger

at 24-17 with 14 minutes to go.

Gilbert slotted his second

penalty goal to ease the pressure

before the Rams closed out the

match at the death.

The rumbled all the way to the

goal-line for Troy Hallett to barge

across, putting the icing on the

cake.

Makene, a natural footballer,

played at first-five because Brett

Cameron was placed on standby

by the Crusaders along with

Mitch Dunshea and Jack Stratton.

Long, ghosting runs by Makene

led to tries by Gilbert and

Connor Garden-Bachop.

Morris added lineout theft and

ball-stealing on the ground to

add to his usual array of skills.

John Borland was as aggressive

as ever, making a big run from

the back of a scrum to spark the

first try and relishing the relative

freedom when he shifted to No.7

early in the second half.

Sydenham were dangerous

from fullback to front row.

In the backs, Derek Stowers,

Milford Keresoma, Sam Franklin

and Dan Fransen all made big

breaks in the first half. Two tries

were the product of sharp back

play.

Hooker Marc Gibbons was one

of the most potent players on the

field until he was subbed off late

in the piece.

Loosehead prop Harrison

Allan lived up to his growing

reputation and was both strong

and clever in scoring Sydenham’s

third try from close range.

Lock Tom Hughes, the only

real tall timber in the Sydenham

side, did well in the lineouts and

around the field.

When Scott Kelly came

on 5min before half-time,

Sydenham’s stocks rose even

further. Surely the coaches

sniffed an opportunity to win by

bringing the big impact player on

so early.

Future captains on

court at Tactix game

A LEESTON netballer got up

close to the on-court action on

Wednesday.

Thirteen-year-old Ella Gibson

and her friend Billie Nuku, 12,

won the opportunity to meet

Tactix captain Jane Watson and

Pulse captain Katrina Grant,

and lead the teams out onto

centre court at the start of their

match, through the ANZ Future

Captains competition.

Ella attends Ellesmere College

and has been playing netball for

seven years. She hopes to play

netball professionally for the

Silver Ferns one day.

“It was really cool having my

photo taken with the captains.

Temalisi Fakahokotau is my

favourite player because she gets

out there and hunts for the ball, I

want to be like her,” Ella said.

ANZ head of sponsorship Sue

McGregor said it’s passionate

about supporting netball at all

levels.

“That’s why we’re giving 94

children from around New

Zealand the chance to be a

future captain and meet their

sporting heroes at each of the

ANZ Premiership matches this

season,” she said.

“I hope that offering them the

chance to meet their heroes and

stand on centre court at the start

of the match will help inspire

them to keep training hard and

achieve their goals.”

The match saw the Pulse beat

the Tactix 47-36.

Protect your

outdoor valuables

Winter is upon us, but it’s not too early to start thinking about your

outdoor areas. When the weather turns warmer you and your family will

soon be spending a lot more time outside to enjoy the warmer weather

and sunshine.

We are all aware of the potential health

effects the sun can have on us, which is why

it is important to evaluate your home, your

bach and your family areas to make sure

they are as protected as can be.

Call Shadecraft, Canterbury’s leading

shade protection expert offering decades of

experience and a variety of solutions.

One solution is the shade sail. A shade

sail can provide shelter around the home,

at sporting facilities, schools and childcare

centres, on lifestyle blocks and farms, and

at commercial premises.

“It is attractive, durable and maintenance

free, and blocks up to 99% of UV radiation,”

says director Mark Levey. “The sail is made

to suit individual requirements and has a

10-year manufacturer's guarantee against

UV breakdown.”

Alternatives to a shade sail include

ShadeCraft’s range of fixed canopies

developed to provide weather and shade

protection for walkways and entrance

areas, patios, carports, and playgrounds.

Each canopy is custom designed to suit

the location and consists of polycarbonate

roofing on a powder-coated galvanised

steel frame. Additional options include

hipped roof shade structures, which are

highly suitable for educational, commercial

or industrial applications.

Can’t wait until summertime to utilise

outdoor areas? The aptly named Ferrari

canopy system protects from winter rain

and hot summer sun and has applications

in the domestic, educational and

commercial arenas. Each Ferrari canopy

is custom made with a maximum span of

eight metres. Construction is quick, with

no on-site welding required.

Don’t want a permanently shaded area?

Your answer may be a retractable awning,

which offers versatility and can be designed

to suit different styles and types of buildings.

Menzshed members wanted

• By Emily O’Connell

MEN ARE being invited

to go along and practice

their skills at the Darfield

Malvern Menzshed.

The shed, which opened

two months ago, already

has about 20 members.

Treasurer Geoff Lalor

said it was “very exciting”

seeing the shed open and

it fits a need in the community.

“It keeps a lot of older

people in the retirement

age involved, it keeps them

He said a number of

people and organisations

have contributed to the

shed, some donating their

equipment.

“The Selwyn District

Council has been very,

very good in helping us get

established,” Mr Lalor said.

In spite of the name, the

shed hopes to open for

women in the near future.

“It’s definitely not just

for men . . . we’re trying to

get it set up and operating

in the beginning with

men there but then we

anticipate opening up to

women,” Mr Lalor said.

He said some of the projects

Fire rages, homes at risk

The dirt on dianthus

VIVID: (Clockwise) – Dianthus confetti grows to about 20cm.

Dianthus Diana blueberry has a rich violet colour. Confetti is

quite happy to grow in pots.

• By Henri Ham

EVERY MONTH I try to write

about a couple of different plants

that can be planted at the time of

writing.

I hope to share some information

you might not know about

and give some practical advice

on how to plant them. This

month I’ve decided to dish the

dirt (so-to-speak) on dianthus.

Dianthus (often called pinks)

is a hardy cottage-garden flower

ideal for planting in borders.

This cheerful plant will be

sure to provide you with many

months of colour in your garden

because, unlike many other

flower varieties, you can plant

it all year round. If you get your

dianthus plants in the ground

now they will do some nice

growing through the rest of

winter and be ready to flower in

spring.

In fact, two weeks ago I did

just that – planted some confetti

dianthus around the outside of a

pot, and origami pink and white

aquilegia in the middle. Come

spring the pot will be a colourful

and bright welcome next to my

front door.

Right, some more dirt on

dianthus. It produces smallerthan-average

flowers, that look

like they have been cut with

shears, on strong upright stems.

And the flowers are fragrant and

make excellent cut flowers for

bright indoor arrangements.

There are three different varieties

of dianthus seedlings available

– the confetti I just mentioned,

blueberry and mixed.

Confetti grows to about 20cm

high and produces a variety of

flowers in lively colours. It’s ideal

for growing in pots, hanging

baskets or borders of gardens.

Blueberry grows a little bit

taller to around 25cm and its

flowers are a rich, violet colour.

Its petal edges are jagged – looking

lacy and frilled.

Lastly, our bundle of mixed

dianthus seedlings grows to approximately

20cm and produces

larger, ruffled carnation-like

blooms in a vibrant mix of orange,

red, pink and yellow.

Now, how to plant. To create

a cottage garden feeling in your

garden, I recommend planting

an assortment of dianthus

varieties in close proximity – at

around 30cm spacings. Their

dense evergreen foliage keeps

bushy all year long and when

planted they cover bare spots

quickly.

Dianthus cope fine with frost

so you can plant them just about

anywhere. Look for somewhere

sunny with good drainage. Ideal

companion plants to grow with

dianthus are marigolds, roses,

petunias, and livingstone daisies

because they all like the same

conditions.

Once established, dianthus

are easy to maintain. They are

rarely struck by pests or disease

and just require a little bit of

care.

In around spring, they will

begin flowering and continue

throughout summer. Regular

trimming of the dead growth

(just cut back a bit to encourage

new growth) and removing

the dead heads will reward you

with two to three sets of blooms

and encourage a denser crop of

flowers.

Lastly, on a culinary note, did

you know dianthus flowers are

edible? They make great decorations

on cakes or bring colour to

salads.

An oregano occasion

• By Henri Ham

WITH WINTER well and truly

here, casseroles stews and soups

are a staple in our kitchen.

To add freshness to these

somewhat heavy meals, I love

to use fresh winter herbs like

oregano. I treat oregano in winter

like I treat basil in summer –

throwing it in with all things

tomato based.

Oregano is a perennial (it lasts

longer than two years). And, if

regularly trimmed and cut back

in early spring by one third, it

will return and produce for years.

It is a pungent and spicy herb

and I’m a fan of its slightly bitter

taste. However, the potency of its

leaves can reduce after three to

four years, so at home I replant

every few years.

Planting oregano is easy. Plant

seedlings in compost rich soil

or in pots close to the kitchen.

Remember to use potting mix if

you’re planting in pots or containers.

Short on space? Consider

vertical planters to keep a variety

of herbs easily accessible. Just

make sure to hang them in a

sunny spot.

When growing oregano consider

companion planting it next

to your cabbages or cauliflower.

Companion planting involves

planting two plants in close proximity

to mutually benefit each

other through attracting certain

insects or keeping other insect

pests away. This method of planting

is particularly popular with

gardeners wanting to avoid the

use of sprays or chemicals.

Once you’ve planted your

FLAVOUR:

Harvest

oregano

before it

flowers

to get

maximum

potency.

oregano give it a gentle watering

in. You probably won’t need

to water it much at the moment.

But when the weather warms

up, water two to three times per

week – give a good soaking to

encourage deep rooting. But

don’t worry too much as oregano

is a hardy herb and very forgiving

if it gets neglected.

Once its growth is established

try drying some sprigs. Simply

tie bunches together and hang

upside down on the porch, or

indoors in a paper bag. Cut a

few holes in the bag and hang

upside down until dried through.

This will take one to two weeks.

Once dry, run your fingers up the

stalks to easily remove the leaves

and store in jars.

Oregano is one of the better

herbs at retaining flavour potency

when dried. To get maximum

strength out of the leaves, harvest

just before it flowers. Remember

one dried teaspoon is equal to

one fresh tablespoon of herbs.

We all know about adding

mint to summer cocktails, but

have you tried hot herb teas? Add

a sprig of oregano to a cup of

hot water for a refreshing winter

change, especially if you’re trying

to cut down on caffeine.

And, when the warmer weather

approaches add oregano fresh

to salads. The more you chop it

up, the more flavoursome it will

be. Oregano can be used in pasta

and pizza sauces, bolognese, and

on top of herby bready rolls.

So, whatever the season you

can always find an occasion for

oregano.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves whic had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

Cave Rock

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr ement this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A hearing i scheduled to be

The bylaw comes as an increasing

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

As a tribute to those who

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

Mr Winder and his team, the

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

• By Bridget Rutherford

IT COULD be some time before

charges are laid in relation to the

fatal hit-and-run in Dallington.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg

Cottam said yesterday the vehicle

involved in the crash last week

was still being examined.

He said there was still a lot of

work to do to gather all the information

and finish police inquiries

before any charges would be laid.

“They can take some time,” he

said.

“We’ve got six months to lay

charges in relation to traffic offending

– it certainly won’t take

that long.”

Steffan Pearce-

Loe (right), 30, was

hit by a vehicle

near the Gayhurst

Rd bridge while

walking his dogs at

about 2.30am last

Thursday.

He died in hospital

from his injuries on Friday.

His funeral was held on Tuesday.

Police found the vehicle

involved, which had damage

consistent with the crash, on Saturday.

A detective saw it parked

up a driveway.

The vehicle’s owner, who was

driving, has been interviewed by

police.

Detective Senior Sergeant Cottam

remained tight-lipped about

the driver. •Turn to page 6

Huia Sinclair-Parker, 10, was at

Willowbank Wildlife Reserve

for Kidfest’s ‘Junior Keeper

for the Day’ programme

yesterday when Neo

swooped in.

Having Neo, the kea, on her

shoulder was exciting, “but

scary at the same time.”

“It jumped on me from behind

and gave me a surprise. They

have sharp claws that dug

into my shoulders.”

Children aged from 10-13 are

working with Willowbank

keepers during the holidays.

Buying a property at auction

If you’re keen on a property that’s going

to auction, preparation is everything. A

successful bid means you are immediately

committed to buy the property; you cannot

seek legal advice, arrange finance or even

get the property valued or inspected when

the auction is over.

That means you need to do all your due

diligence in advance of auction day. Before

the auction (usually after you’ve viewed the

property), the real estate agent working for

the seller should provide you with a copy

of the terms and Contract of Sale, which

sets out what chattels will be included with

the property. This document will also tell

you the amount of the deposit to be paid

by the successful bidder, and when the

balance of the payment must be made.

These documents should be checked by

your lawyer.

You should consider having the property

checked (preferably by a qualified inspector

who has professional indemnity insurance

and carries out their work in accordance

with the New Zealand Property Inspection

Standards and obtain an up-to-date Land

Information Memorandum (LIM) from

the local council. It’s a good idea to get a

valuation of the property, especially as

you are likely to require one if you need a

loan. Some websites provide free estimated

market values that may be useful.

There’s a lot to take in at an auction and

it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. If you can,

go along to one as an observer to see how

the process works before you actually want

to buy. Remember that the auctioneer is

working for the seller and they want to get

the highest price possible for the property.

At an auction, the auctioneer will read the terms and

conditions of the sale aloud and announce if a reserve

price has been set. They must also state whether the seller

has reserved the right to bid during the auction. This is

called ‘vendor bidding’ and it is only allowed under strict

circumstances, such as when the property being auctioned

has a reserve price; when the reserve price has not yet been

met; and the auctioneer has made it clear that the bid being

made is a vendor bid. They must do this by saying, ‘this is a

vendor bid’ rather than using any jargon.

Auctioneers sometimes use vendor bids as a way to

start off the bidding, or to move the bidding towards the

reserve price. Vendor bids can be made by the auctioneer,

or another person working on behalf of

the seller, such as a real estate agent. An

auctioneer can also use a pre-auction offer

to start the bidding.

The auction continues until there is only

one bidder left. At that stage, if the reserve

price is reached or beaten, the highest

bidder will be the successful buyer. If the

reserve price isn’t reached, the seller can tell

the auctioneer to stop the auction without

selling the property.

If the auction is stopped without a sale, the

highest bidder may have the opportunity to

negotiate with the seller (via their agent)

after the auction. If this happens, the terms

and conditions of the auction no longer

apply and you can negotiate new ones.

Almost a lighting revolution

The emergence of LED lighting might

almost be mooted a revolution in lighting

with them offering brighter, quicker, more

cost effective light.

While an initial higher outlay, long-term

power savings make LEDs more economic

with the adage ‘what you pay for is, what

you get’ meaning the higher the quality

the more benefits. LEDs usually return

their initial cost in around a year through

power savings while lasting over ten years,

especially when a quality fitting.

The overall cost of LED lighting is

lower than when first introduced to the

market. With its benefits much greater,

incandescent light bulbs, compact

fluorescent lamps and halogen lighting are

all becoming a thing of the past.

LED lighting is five to six times brighter

than its incandescent equivalent and with

a narrower beam angle the light is more

focussed.

Juice Electrical’s Greg Horton

recommends LEDs due to their efficiency.

“It’s unlikely you’ll need to change an

LED fitting for 10-20 years as they last so

much longer,” advises Greg.

While LED lighting may add $500-

$1,500 more to the cost of an average

house build, the extra cost is future

focussed as they use a tenth of the

power for lighting. LED fittings are also

becoming cheaper and there are now LED

bulbs that can be retrofitted into older

light fittings.

“The way in which an LED diode

is manufactured and the luminescent

moulded together determines its quality,”

explains Greg.

There are other benefits in choosing

better quality LEDs too. With high quality

ICF LED lights, pink batt insulation can be

closed and butted so it sits right beside and

over the top of the LED. This was not the

case with other lighting methods where

insulation had to be cut away from the

light fitting as it would heat up posing a

fire hazard.

With insulation able to cover high

quality LED lights, more heat is retained

in the home. However a word of warning,

some LEDs still require insulation to be

cut around them so it is essential you get

advice from an electrician first. This is also

something a building inspector will check

if a new home is being constructed or an

alteration requiring building consent is

undertaken.

LEDs are also ideal if changing a light

fitting is a mission, such as with high

ceilings and above stairs.

Benefits of LED lighting:

• Light output is excellent.

• LED bulbs are very efficient, using up

to 85% less electricity than incandescent

bulbs.

• LED bulbs last longer than other

lighting forms.

• Efficient use of electricity and longer

life means less impact on the environment.

• The LED’s lifespan is not affected by

frequently being turned off and on.

Negatives of LED

lighting:

• This form of

lighting is initially

more expensive.

• Many older

dimmers will not

work with LED

light bulbs making

it more feasible to

change the complete

light fitting to an

LED one, something

Greg recommends

as they have a much

longer life span.

The emergence of LED

lighting might almost be

mooted a revolution in

lighting with them offering

brighter, quicker, more

cost effective light.

LEDs are 5-6 times brighter than

incandescent equivalents.

LED is more focussed light.

LED lighting uses less electricity.
