ANOTHER DRINK driver has

escaped injury after a spectacular

crash.

A 34-year-old who was almost

four times the drink driving limit

rolled his van in Killinchy near

Sergeant Alex Pickover said the

man’s vehicle drifted off the road

and hit some raised land, causing

it to roll.

He said the man, who lives in

the district, had been drinking

at a friend’s house prior to the

accident.

The crash happened on

Harmans and Andersons Rds at

about 10pm.

The man’s recorded breath

alcohol reading was 968mcg/l.

The legal limit is 250mcg/l.

The man will appear in the

Open day labelled

• By Anan Zaki

AN anti-Templeton quarry

campaigner is labelling a Fulton

Hogan open day as a publicity

stunt.

The company is holding a family

day at its Miners Rd quarry

on Sunday, opening the site for

visitors.

Fulton Hogan

has proposed

a quarry on a

170ha site on

Curraghs, Dawsons

and Jones

Rds.

Curraghs Rd

Simon Moore

Craig Stewart

resident and

Templeton-

No Quarry

member Simon

Moore said the

event is “propaganda.”

“I know what

they do there

and I can see

the results of it.

Even on a clear

day with no

wind, I can see the dust from the

Miners Rd quarry,” he said.

In response to the allegation,

Fulton Hogan South Island

general manager Craig Stewart

said the event is being held to

teach people about the quarrying

process and where building

materials come from.

“For our staff, it is an excellent

opportunity for them to share

with their families the work

they take such pride in delivering.

“For the wider community, this

is the opportunity for them to get

a first-hand experience of the operations

of a quarry – and have a

day out for the family at the same

time,” he said.

Mr Moore said a quarry would

INTERNATIONAL

be the last place he would set

foot in.

“Like I’ve said before, there is a

place [in New Zealand]

for quarrying, just not near

houses.”

He will not resort to protesting

at the event.

“I’m not going to be there, I

won’t be lying down blocking the

trucks, that’s not me,” Mr Moore

said.

It is the first time the

company is holding a public

family day, past events were only

open to families of company

staff.

said a sub-contractor was in

charge of reviewing the hoops

and making sure they were up

to standard. Nine out of 16

basketball hoops failed. Many

of the hoops are connected to

a backboard which is an

automatic fail due to the

high risk of pull out or pull

Fire rages, homes at risk

ON SALE: A $595,000 house in Branthwaite Drive, Rolleston (left), Olympus Tce, Castle Hill, and Horndon St, Darfield (below). The district’s median house price was

$595,000 last month.

House prices on the rise in Selwyn

Houses in the district

hit a record median

price of $595,000 last

month. Emily O’Connell

investigates why this

has happened and what

house hunters can get for

their money

NOT ONLY is the district’s

population growing, but so is its

house prices.

Figures released by the Real

Estate Institute of New Zealand

last week showed the median

house price in the district had

risen from

$580,000 in

June last year

to $595,000 in

June this year.

About 59,000

people currently

live in

the district and

James Twiss

this number

is expected to

grow to 79,200

by 2028.

Four Seasons principal officer

James Twiss, who is opening a

Harcourts office in Lincoln in

September, put June’s median

house price of $595,000 mostly

down to new builds.

“You’ll find there’s been a lot of

new housing stocks going up

. . . even though it seems high, for

new properties, it still suggests

its value for what you can get for

that price verses the city,” he said.

Seventy-five houses were sold

in the district in June, 18 less than

the month before. However, it was

an increase from June last year

when just 43 houses were sold.

The median days to sell a house

in the district last month was 32,

this has increased from June last

year, where it was 17.

When compared to other

Canterbury districts, Selwyn had

the second highest median house

price last month.

The Mackenzie District had the

highest median house price last

month at $597,000.

Ashburton sat at $327,000,

Christchurch city $430,000 and

Waimakariri, $441,000.

In Darfield, house-hunters can

purchase a 254 sq m four-bedroom,

two-bathroom house, with

a 0.57ha property for $595,000.

The median house price in Darfield

last month was $399,000.

In Rolleston, house-hunters

will get a smaller 204 sq m fourbedroom,

two-bathroom house,

on a 668 sq m property for the

same price. The median house

price in Rolleston last month was

$560,000.

In Lincoln, people wanting to

buy a house can get a 192 sq m

four-bedroom, two-bathroom

house on a 600 sq m property

for $593,771. The median house

price in Lincoln last month was

$610,000.

In Castle Hill, a 125 sq m

three-bedroom, two-bathroom

house on a 588 sq m property is

priced at $595,000. The median

house price in Castle Hill was

unavailable as there was only one

sale in the village in the past year.

Mr Twiss said they made the

decision to open an office in

Lincoln following district council

statistics which showed the predicted

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.

Mr Twiss said most househunters

in Lincoln tend to be

families who are looking for

four-bedroom, two-bathroom

houses.

FAST FACTS

•Last month the median

house price across the

country rose by 5.7 per

cent to a record equal

median of $560,000 up

from $530,000 the same

time last year.

•The New Zealand

median house price

remained at a recordequalling

figure of

$460,000 in June, up 7 per

cent on June 2017.

•Auckland’s median house

price decreased by 0.7

$856,000 last year.

•The number of properties

Passion for performing earns

Rolleston resident Caelan Thomas’ passion for theatre has earned him a nomination in the Selwyn Awards 2018 People’s Choice. The

19-year-old pianist has been involved with the Kirwee Players and is the musical director of the Selwyn Community Choir. He spoke to

Georgia O’Connor- Harding about his passion for performing

What did you think when you

found out you were nominated

for the Selwyn Awards 2018

People’s Choice?

It is incredible. It is amazing –

I am honoured. I feel lucky I get

to spend as much time as I do

pursuing the things I love.

Is this your full-time job at

the moment?

I am studying. I am just

about to start my final

semester in a Bachelor

of Science majoring in

maths at Canterbury

University. I have been

there for two and a half

years and I am finishing

off my last semester. I was

thinking of going into

mathematics or doing

computer science. An

IT job or something

like that. I did

think about

doing

music

at

university, but I wanted to keep

it as something I do because I

love it – not as a job I had to do. I

didn’t want to kill the passion.

Tell me about how you got involved

in the performing arts?

I got involved with the Kirwee

Players in 2015. I was in

my final year

of school.

My

music

teacher

was

the

musical

director

for Grease,

which was

the show

they were

doing and

they needed

a piano player.

I wasn’t quite sure

if it was something I

wanted to get into, so I

agreed to just a couple

of rehearsals with them

to see how I found it

and I ended up falling in

love with it and haven’t

looked back. I am doing

my fourth show with

the Kirwee Players this year on

the piano. I have done a couple

of kids’ shows over the past two

years. Also, at the end of the

year, I am playing the piano for

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor

Dreamcoat with the new

theatre company CentreStage

Rolleston. We had auditions

recently. We had about 40 kids

come and audition and about 35

adults.

There are a huge amount of

opportunities in Christchurch.

Why do you choose to be involved

in the performing arts

in Selwyn?

I guess it is my home. It is part

of the community

I am in. It is cool to be able

to provide those opportunities

for the people I live with in the

community, especially opportunities

for kids to get involved.

It is a lifetime thing that really

sticks with you.

Do you have any special early

memories of you playing the

piano?

I have been playing for about

as long as I can remember. I

started out at about four with

mum. And then after a few

months, mum got me a teacher

because I stopped listening

to her.

No memory really sticks out.

It used to be something I did

every morning. It was part of my

morning routine – basically at

7am, mum and dad said I could

set my clock by it. It was part of

my morning routine. It is something

you have got to do over a

long period of time.

What is your favourite piece

on the piano?

I really like Clair de Lune. So

moving. It took probably six

months for me to master.

recognition

You have also taken on the role of

musical director for the Selwyn Community

Centre, how has that been?

I really love it. It is an amazing group

of people who love singing. We have had

some real success this year. I was really

proud of our performance at the Rolleston

Anzac Day service. We have been asked to

perform at the dawn service for Christchurch’s

Anzac Day next year. All these

doors are opening for the choir.

What songs are you planning to sing?

We are planning to do Bring Him Home,

originally from Les Misérables. It is a fitting

song for the occasion.

What else is coming up for the choir?

We are performing for our family and

friends at The Piano on August 12. That is

the big new venue in town. Really looking

forward to performing at a high-quality

venue made for music really. And then on

November 11 for Armistice Day, we have a

performance.

What are the ages of the choir?

Our youngest is aged 14-15 ranging to

80 or 90-plus. Between the Darfield and

Rolleston group, we have 50-60 members.

It is non-audition, so anyone can show

up if they are keen which is really cool. It

makes it a really inclusive thing which I

like about it. It was originally started up

by a lady called Belinda Cullen- Reid. Unfortunately

she had to resign last year and

that is when I became involved. I think

when we started, we might have only had

20-25 people. It has been growing and

growing.

Do you have a musical family?

Mum is very musical, dad is not very

musical at all. He is kind of dragged to a

lot of musical performances. But my sister

is also very musical as well. It has been a

big part of our lives growing up.

Was your passion for the performing

arts always supported by friends and

family?

Yes, I did a couple of shows in high

school. I was involved in High School

Musical at Lincoln High School. I had

an amazing piano teacher called Beth

Keoghan. She always provided me with

as much music as I could possibly hope to

play. Just different styles and variety.

What are your goals in terms of helping

the performing arts thrive in the

future?

I am involved in the committee for

CentreStage Rolleston and we are going to

be running some kids’ shows as well. I am

GIFTED: Caelan Thomas directing

the Selwyn Community Choir at the

Rolleston Anzac Day service.

looking forward to holiday programmes.

I am inspired by children’s theatre. The

passion they bring to the stage is addicting.

To watch them grow and perform as

singers and dancers is incredibly fulfilling

and something I would like to pursue in

the future.

Have you always lived in Selwyn?

I was born in Wellington and spent six

months there and then I moved to Selwyn

so I have spent most of my life here.

What is the best production you have

ever been involved in?

I really loved when we did Annie out at

the Kirwee Players. We had a really talented

cast which pushed me as the musical

director to provide feedback and push the

kids harder than I have in any other show.

We sold out all our performances for that.

Have you ever had an absolute disaster

on the stage?

There has been a few rehearsals that go

badly or where we have technical problems.

On the whole, I don’t think I have

had any crazy disasters but I suspect one

day we will run into that, which will make

a great story I am sure.

What are the challenges Selwyn performers

are facing?

I think the biggest problem is the lack of

a venue. It would be really useful to have

a good theatre venue and practice spaces

as well. Hopefully, over the next five to 10

years we can work with council groups

and local groups. I think that would be the

biggest challenge at the moment.

Selwyn

Waihora Zone

Committee

chairman Allen

Lim writes

about its

commitment to

protecting and

enhancing biodiversity

DID YOU know that biodiversity

work in our zone is a

significant part of the zone committee’s

decision-making?

Since 2010, we have funded 52

‘immediate steps’ projects from a

fund of $100,000 per year.

The landowners contribute a

similar amount in in-kind contributions,

but that’s not counting

the value of the land which is

often effectively “locked away” to

preserve the biodiversity values

that we seek to protect.

The Selwyn Waihora zone

covers the Waimakariri and

Rakaia rivers on the northern

and southern borders, and from

Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere all

the way to Arthur’s Pass. The

map shows the projects that have

been funded to date. If you want

to know more, go to the Canterbury

maps website and search on

biodiversity.

The projects are wide-ranging,

and seek to protect, enhance and

restore biodiversity from the

high country to the sea, ki uta

ki tai.

This work isn’t limited to

projects on river margins or

wetlands. For example, we have

supported QE II and Banks

Peninsula covenants, protecting

The Selwyn District Council would like to thank all of

our Gold sponsors for their generous support.

If this T-intersection doesn’t

qualify for a stop sign, can

anyone please explain how the

does? This is a T-intersection

with clear vision in both

It is where about 95 per cent of the

traffic compelled to stop on Weedons Rd

turn left into Springston-Rolleston Rd, so

the least dangerous turn. And the traffic

they are waiting for is already slowing

down for the major intersection with

Shands Rd only 50m further on. Surely,

if there was ever a case for a give way sign

this is it. There are numerous examples of

far more dangerous intersections in the

area that are currently controlled by give

way signs but would be far better served by

stop signs.

Wet wipes put pressure

on sewer pump stations

WHAT DO cigarette butts,

syringes, wet wipes and

condoms have in common?

They are all blocking

your toilet.

The district council spent

about $50,000 last year,

unclogging 269 blockages

at sewer pump stations.

A district council

spokesman said there have

been 234 blockages so far

this year and more than

half of the blockages have

been caused by wet wipes.

He said the most

blockages in the past

couple of years have

occurred in Leeston and

Prebbleton.

The district council is

advising residents to limit

what they flush down the

toilet to the three ps – pee,

poo and (toilet) paper.

District council

assets manager Murray

Washington says in spite

of its name and description

flushable wet wipes

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.”

Other items which

have been found in sewer

systems in the district

include latex products such

as gloves and condoms,

feminine hygiene

products, paper towels,

napkins, tissues, nursing

pads, cloth, clothing and

rags, fats, grease and oil,

sticky plasters, dressings,

cotton balls, cotton buds,

dental floss, hair, plastic

wrappers, cigarette butts

and 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 said

most sewer pipes are only

10–20 cm in diameter and

aren’t designed to carry the

range of products which

have been found clogging

the systems.

You bring the dream,

we’ll bring the

How To.

With Canterbury experiencing

a hot summer after the wettest

winter on record, our weather

has certainly been extreme.

However, brave Cantabrians,

with verandas and adjustable

louvres from Stratco on our

side, we can take back control

of our unpredictable elements.

Steve Cain, Outdoor Product

Specialist at Stratco, is passionate

about their verandas and electronic

louvre systems “they add great

value to a home, families get

so much more use from their

outdoors, and the real estate

market recognises that value as

well”.

Steve says adding an adjustable

louvre system allows you to

control exactly how much sunlight

and breeze in, and protect from

rain as well.

Custom made to suit your

requirements and powder coated

to any colour, the louvre comes

standard with an electronic remote

control as well as a rain sensor

which gives you huge flexibility on

how to use the system.

The verandas are Stratco’s own

unique leading edge design and

componentry. Steve is pleased to

be able to offer a bespoke veranda

at the same price as a standard

product, because Stratco has

the design tools that enable the

veranda to be custom-designed to

your size, layout, and attachment

requirements.

The process is simple: Steve

will talk through the possibilities

with you and then measure and

quote, which is free with no

obligation. Stratco then designs,

manufactures, and installs the

verandas and louvres themselves.

It’s a one-stop-shop, with all the

project management and heavy

lifting taken care of, leaving you

hands free to thumb your nose at

our climate chaos.

are starting to peak at the right

time,” Robertson said. “We’ve

had some issues with bone injuries

this year which had harmed

our rhythm as a team in the

earlier rounds,” he said.

Waihora lost their first game

since round one of the combined

country competition which they

ended up winning.

as his team conceded a late

penalty which Mitchell Laughton

kicked. Waihora’s Harry Kirk

missed a shot at goal from the

sidelines in the last play of the

game.

The win firmly entrenched

Prebbleton in the top four.

Fifth-placed Springston kept

their slim semi-final chances

alive by scrambling past West

Melton 24-19.

Lincoln had no trouble dealing

with Rolleston 39-15 and Burnham

Dunsandel Irwell were too

strong for winless Hornby 52-19.

Southbridge can go a long

way to securing a semi-final

spot if they can beat Springston

on Saturday and extend their

four-point advantage on the

competition ladder. Lincoln will

host Prebbleton, Rolleston will

welcome BDI, and West Melton

will play Hornby in a battle of

the cellar-dwellers.

Principal’s Message

Welcome to our Term Two Community Newsletter.

We communicate regularly to our students and families

during the term but we also want to share with our wider

community some of the celebrations and activities from the

last term. The educational success of our children is based on

the partnership between school, family and community, so it

is important to keep in touch.

The most important part of any school are the people who

learn and work there. Although without the people the

buildings are pointless, with good facilities the effectiveness

of the learning within is able to be better supported. It was

a pleasure therefore to open our two new classroom blocks

in May. As well as providing much needed classroom spaces,

well designed, modern learning spaces, with good light,

acoustics, airflow and visibility can make a positive difference.

All classrooms also have good connection to the outdoor

environment.

For most of the spaces we have chosen to use single

classroom spaces that open out through sliding doors into

a shared, multi use space alongside teacher workspaces and

meeting rooms. This flexibility means that classes can work

within a traditional classroom space when this best suits the

learning or break out into other spaces when this is needed.

The flexibility should serve the school into the future as needs

change.

The community Matariki celebration in June reminded me

how important it is for our children to be able to live and

work within the bicultural and multicultural contexts of our

country. The Malvern community is

predominantly of white European

ethnicity. As such, most students will

not get the opportunity to experience

other cultures as part of their daily

lives. Most other communities in NZ

and most workplaces are composed

of a wide variety of ethnicities and cultures and our children

need to be comfortable interacting with them.

For most jobs in NZ it is considered a positive attribute to be

confident with some Maori language and protocol. Being

familiar with greetings, Waiata, Mihi and Powhiri are seen

as important by many employers. In private companies and

every government agency, employees are expected to operate

successfully with these. By having a broad education in Tikanga

(culture) and Te Reo (language) our students are learning key

skills for life and work in NZ.

The government is currently reviewing a number of aspects

of the education system including NCEA, learning support

and Tomorrow’s Schools – the education reforms of the 1980s

that changed the governance and management of schools

to a self-managing, competitive model. It is important that

a wide range of voices are heard in these reviews, including

feedback where you think things are working well. Go to

www.conversation.education.govt.nz for opportunities to get

involved.

Award Winning

Author

Kate de Goldi

During Term Two, the English Department and Library were

really excited to host one of New Zealand's most enjoyed,

respected and award winning authors, Kate de Goldi. Kate

is well-known for her writing and she is also a passionate

promoter of reading and writing with students in schools. Her

reviews feature in many publications and she is a regular on

radio, TV and at literary events. Twenty students enjoyed a

two hour workshop with Kate. She gave them a speedy tour

of her philosophy on writing and lots of opportunities to do

their own writing using different starter activities. Comments

afterwards included "It was really helpful and interesting and

I left with lots of ideas and tools to use in my writing for my

NCEA portfolio."

Darfield High School

Senior Drama Department

presents

For her last session, Kate did a presentation to some Years 9

and 10 English classes. She outlined how she became a writer

and answered a variety of questions from the audience. Her

advice to students wanting to build on their writing is to read,

observe the world around you, record things that interest you,

that there is power in writing about things that interest you

and to never be satisfied with your first draft.

Check Please

Follows a series of

blind dates that

Could there possibly

be a light at the end

of the tunnel?

The Darfield High School Drama Department presented five well

rehearsed productions of Jonathan Rand’s Check Please, at the end

of June.

This production followed a series of blind dinner dates that

couldn't get any worse - until they do. Students loved performing

it and audiences loved watching it. The flexible casting, minimal

set and prop requirements and opportunity for comic bits make it

perfect for high schools and play productions.

French

Workshop

For the first time this year, the UC French

department organised an event for all

high school students in our region. The

idea was to gather everyone for a whole

day of French immersion and practice in

preparation for the NCEA examinations.

Every teacher attending this event was in

charge of a workshop or two and students

rotated between different sessions. I

taught two groups of Year 13 students

from a variety of schools while my students

attended workshops run by other teachers.

It was a fun and refreshing approach and

students said they learnt a lot from it.

We are looking forward to another French

day at UC next year!

Cultural Diversity

On 25 May, we held our first Cultural Diversity Day. This event was previously

known as International Day but we wanted to include all of the different

cultures in our school, so we updated the event name. It was fantastic to see the

Philippines represented for the first time by some of our domestic students, and

there was a great variety of cultural games and activities on offer. Throughout

the day, we had approximately 180 students visit, and many participated in the

passport activity. By visiting all the stalls and answering questions about each

culture to complete their passport, students went in the draw to win a tasty

snack from Japan. Students also helped fold origami paper cranes that will be

taken to Japan later in the year by students and staff participating in the Japan

trip. To finish off the day, everyone enjoyed watching a kapahaka performance at

the end of lunchtime. A big thank you to all of the students who participated by

sharing their culture, and to students and staff who visited during the day.

Peer Support Programme

Over the past two terms, a group of Year 12 students have spent

their study periods with the Year 7s as part of the Peer Support

programme.

This programme runs every year to welcome the new students

and help them to settle in and get to know each other.

At the end of last year, all of the Year 12s took part in a twoday

training programme to improve our leadership, teamwork

and communication skills, and to learn a variety of games and

activities that we could do with the Year 7s.

We put this into practice during this year’s weekly Wednesday

period 5 sessions, where we got to organise and run a lesson for

our class for the hour. Each week, we focused on a different key

message, to help them to get to know the school, get to know

each other, and develop self-confidence.

We are embarking on an exciting design journey this year,

alongside the Darfield Community Garden team, with our end

goal to see one of the students' designs become a reality at the

Community Garden, situated alongside Almond Park.

The creative vibe is alive and buzzing in the classroom and we

have had our first site visit during Term Two and discussion

with the stakeholders. Bev Elder and her team have been doing

Throughout the lessons, they learned about friendships,

communication and teamwork skills, as well as looking at values

and respect.

Peer Support was also valuable for the Year 12s. It was a great

opportunity to work on our leadership—managing a class of

excited 11 year olds was a new experience for all of us, and

definitely challenging at times, but it was incredibly rewarding

to see our hard work pay off and see the kids having fun and

getting more comfortable with us and each other.

We are extremely proud of how far the students have come in

such a short time. Their confidence has increased dramatically,

and everyone has made new friends, not only with other Year 7s

but with the Year 12s as well. We hope the lessons have helped

the students with their transition into Darfield High School, and

look forward to seeing them grow throughout the year.

Gualter to miss crucial

match against St Bede’s

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN COMBINED will

go into arguably their most

important game in history on

Saturday without their captain

Wil Gualter.

The talented midfielder was

knocked out during the Crusaders

Knights training camp a

fortnight ago and will be rested

from Saturday’s crucial regular

season game against St Bede’s

College.

After a two-week break for

the school holidays and the

Cinderella-story of this year’s

competition, Lincoln Combined

sit third with three regular season

games remaining.

Lincoln Combined are on 37

points, five ahead of fifth-placed

Nelson College, which have a

game in hand against secondplaced

Christ’s College.

Lincoln Combined will travel

to face fourth-placed St Bede’s

on their own turf on Saturday,

the first of three away trips to

conclude the round-robin.

They will then face Nelson

College on August 4 and competition

leaders Christchurch Boys’

High School on August 11.

Coach Mike Wilson said it was

not ideal to lose Gualter but he

believed the squad would step up

in his absence.

“We have a squad of 30 guys

who will have to go out there and

step-up,” Wilson said. “Hopefully

some of the guys will see

it as an opportunity to fill the

void.”

Wilson admitted he would

sleep easier if his side could

secure a top four spot before the

last game against CBHS, but he

was trying not to think too far

ahead.

“We just have to focus on the

next game and not worry about

what might happen or what

could happen because some of

the other fixtures will have an

impact on the outcome too.

Nelson College and Christ’s

will face each other on August

8 in their make-up game, and a

Christ’s College win would likely

help Lincoln’s push to make the

top four for the first time.

A win on Saturday against

St Bede’s would go a long way

to making that dream a reality,

while also severely denting the

chances of one of their main

rivals.

Grace scores crucial try in Lincoln Uni win

• By Jim Doyle

THE VERSATILE Cullen Grace

scored a crucial try on the hour

to help propel Lincoln University

to a 36-24 win over Sydenham in

their metro premier rugby semifinal

at Lincoln on Saturday.

Lincoln University will play

New Brighton for the Hawkins

Trophy at Rugby Park on Sunday.

With the

scores locked

at 17-17, Grace

(left), who went

from blindside

flanker to No

8 for the final

20min, took

the ball off the

back of a 5m

scrum and was going to score by

the posts, or die in the attempt.

He was brought down just

short of the line but stretched out

a big right hand and planted the

ball exactly where he’d planned.

That was the spark Lincoln

needed.

A couple of minutes later,

hooker Nic Souchon was across

after sweeping lead-up play. Before

long Caleb Makene was the

beneficiary of a tackle-busting

surge down the right by Connor

BIG PLAY: Former TBHS captain Cullen Grace stretched out for a crucial try for Lincoln during

their Hawkins Trophy semi-final against Sydenham on Saturday.

Garden-Bachop.

Sydenham had a consolation

try close to full-time when

slippery fullback Dan Fransen

speared through after the forwards

had done the hard work.

There was much more to

Grace’s play than his try. The former

Timaru Boys’ High School

captain put a lot of work in

around the park and won a good

deal of lineout ball, especially in

the first half.

Connor Gordon, back after

an injury break, was constantly

busy as he ranged off the open

side of the scrum. His pace gave

Lincoln another early try. Hamish

Dalzell broke, then deftly

slipped the ball to the flying

Gordon.

Five minutes later, Ben Morris,

with a clever run and draw, and

Sam Gilbert, who flipped a popup

pass on the line, had Jesse

Houston across.

The imposing Dalzell was

replaced by Mitch Dunshea

early in the second half.

Dunshea was explosive with ball

in hand.

Troy Hallett had a big game

at tighthead prop. He pulled off

a crunching head-on tackle early,

continued to defend powerfully,

and made several strong carries.

Joe Meek had a top game at

halfback, making a startling

break in the first half that

seemed destined to end in a try.

Scorers:

Lincoln University 36 (Connor

Country aim to end losing streak

• By Jacob Page

CANTERBURY Country will

look to end a frustrating losing

streak to Canterbury Metro in

their South Island representative

campaign next month.

The initial Canterbury

Country squad was named after

the Southbridge Shield clashes

between Ellesmere and North

Canterbury at Prebbleton on July

14.

They will play six fixtures

this season, which will include

resurrecting their annual fixture

against Marlborough and the

Farmlands Cup against Otago

Country and Southland Country.

However, it has been 10 years

since Canterbury Country wrestled

the Craw Shield from the

grip of Canterbury Metro.

However, after the team lost in

injury time last year, coach Nigel

Smith believes they have got the

culture right.

“We’ve focused on individual

players who we think can add

to the group and that’s why 55

per cent of them are new to the

country level.”

Smith stepped away from his

duties at Saracens to focus solely

on this campaign, and has been

a regular at Thursday night club

100%

CapItal GaIn

to the ResIDent

trainings and Saturday fixtures.

He said players like Waihora

lock Joe Robbins had impressed

him. “For some years we saw Joe

as a blind-side, but when I saw

his work rate as a lock, I thought

he had a game that was exactly

what we needed,” Smith said.

He said Springston midfielder

Shaun Harrington is a player

who has had a lot of success

lately.

“He’s fit because he’s training

for the Coast to Coast and he just

keeps giving; he never stops,”

Smith said.

He expected their lineout and

loose forwards to be the team’s

strength, especially with the

ball-carrying of Southbridge’s

Jali Masi.

There is still plenty of experience

in the squad with Prebbleton

midfielder Tim Murgatroyd

and Waihora fullback Mark

Maitland in the mix.

The team will face Marlborough

in Blenheim in their first

game on August 18.

Upsets dominate third round of premier netball

UPSETS: Broadfield A goal attack Maia Hill in action earlier in

the season. Broadfield A’s loss was one of three big upsets in

the opening week of the third round of the Selwyn premier

netball competition.

• By Jacob Page

THERE WERE three games

and three upsets in the first

week of the final round of

Selwyn premier netball on

Saturday.

The third round of the season,

which will determine the semifinalists,

got under way with the

form guide being thrown out the

window.

The three top teams from the

previous two rounds – Lincoln

A, Greenpark A and Broadfield

A – all suffered shock losses.

Newly-promoted Rolleston

A defeated title contenders

Broadfield A 55-54 to start the

day.

That was followed by

$1,000 FullY

ReFunDable

DeposIt

Southbridge A downing an

error-ridden Greenpark A 57-53

and then defending champions

Lincoln A were tipped over by

Greenpark B 55-46.

Lincoln A coach Vanessa

Robinson said she could scarcely

believe what she had seen across

all three games.

“I left the courts on Saturday

shaking my head thinking ‘oh

my goodness’,” she said.

“From our perspective, we

just didn’t start well at all,” she

said.

“Our shots didn’t go in and we

were behind from the start and

the more we tried, the worse it

seemed to get,” Robinson said.

“I said to the team beforehand

that (having watched the two

previous games) we were not

going to be a statistic but that’s

exactly what we became.”

Robinson said all three

winning teams deserved a lot of

credit for the way they played.

Saturday will see Lincoln A

face Rolleston A, Greenpark A

will face clubmates Greenpark

B and Southbridge A will face

Broadfield A.

Results: Rolleston A 55,

Broadfield A 54; Southbridge

A 57, Greenpark A 53;

Greenpark B 55, Lincoln A

46.

Points: Greenpark B 4,

Southbridge A 4, Rolleston A

4, Broadfield A 1, Greenpark

A 1, Lincoln 0.

Rolleston recently welcomed its first township traffic lights, but six more sets of lights are to be

installed over the next decade around Lincoln and Rolleston.

Alongside the two sets of lights already installed in Rolleston, another two are scheduled as part

of the Long-Term Plan, while four sets are set to be installed in Lincoln.

The two recently installed lights in Rolleston are on Rolleston Drive/Masefield Drive, and at

Hoskyns Road/Jones Road.

The two new projects, which are set to be completed over the next three years, will see traffic

lights replacing the roundabouts at Tennyson/Springston Rolleston/Lowes Road and at Rolleston

Drive/Tennyson Street.

Asset Manager Transportation, Andrew Mazey, says the new Rolleston Drive/Tennyson Street

lights are designed to work in with the town centre development.

“We would like to coordinate this work in with the construction of the marquee town centre build

of the new community centre and library.

For Mazey and his team, this work is about future-proofing a continually growing town.

“With Rolleston we understand that the community is continuing to grow, and we will continue to

monitor the town to ensure that traffic flow is kept steady, and that we best service the community.”

The Council is also working alongside the NZ Transport Agency to help improve access to Rolleston.

“Continuing on from the Christchurch Southern Motorway project we have been working

alongside NZTA to bring improvements with developing and changing future access to the town.”

Like Rolleston, Lincoln has also been experiencing significant growth, and a beautification

process of Gerald Street will run alongside the installation of new traffic lights in the village.

Four sets of traffic lights are set to be installed at intersections along Gerald Street.

They will be at Gerald/West Belt, Gerald/Veron Drive, Gerald/Springs Road and Gerald/James and

Edward Street.

Andrew Mazey says these will be hugely important to help preserve the village feel of Lincoln.

“With the transformation and beautification of Gerald Street, developing good traffic flow will help

increase the user experience for those living and visiting Lincoln, as well as helping those on foot

and cycling through the village.“

Mr Mazey says the travel habits of Lincoln University students is aa factor in planning the new

projects, and the Gerald Street/Springs Road traffic signals will help ensure the safety of those

travelling to and from the University campus.

First harness racing win brings smiles

ON AN otherwise gloomy day at

the Ashburton trots, the smiles

of one family brightened things

considerably.

And while most moments

from the final meeting of the

season for the Ashburton Trotting

Club will be quickly forgotten,

for young Danni Alfeld, it’s

a memory that will stick around

forever.

Alfeld, the daughter of well-respected

horseman Ricky, picked

up her first win as a trainer with

just her fourth starter at the

races when consistent mare Sans

Le Sou held off all challengers

to win a competitive fillies and

mares mile event.

The family is from Lincoln.

And making the moment all

that more special for the entire

family was that dad, Ricky, was

sitting in the sulky handling the

SPORTS

steering duties.

“It’s a pretty cool moment,”

the quietly spoken Danni said.

“Hopefully there’s a few more

to come too.”

One of the major reasons

behind Alfeld getting her licence

was the introduction of the new

young trainer incentives from

Harness Racing New Zealand

which make getting a trainers’

licence a lot more appealing.

“It made sense for her to get in

and get it while that was available,”

Ricky said.

“It’s a pretty special moment

for us, one we certainly won’t

forget for a while that’s for sure.”

The raw emotion of the moment

was evident in the birdcage

after the race – understating the

significance of the success.

A 79-start veteran, Sans Le

Sou has long been a consistent

performer around Canterbury.

The daughter of Mach Three

has now won seven and placed

on 21 occasions – often flying

out of the pack late.

“She’s only got a short sprint

and we were all out at the finish

there, I actually thought we had

gotten beat by the horse down

the outside.

“It’s a good race to win though

– there’s a nice stake attached.”

Alfeld has four horses in work

at home currently, a full sister to

Sans Le Sou as well as progeny

by Bettor’s Delight and Art

Major.

CHAMPION: Lucia Gale defeated some of Australia’s top junior

Queensland Junior Championships.

Junior tennis player

overcomes odds at

Queensland champs

• By Gordon Findlater

PREBBLETON School’s Lucia

Gale battled against some of

Australia’s top juniors to win the

Rod Laver Queensland Junior

Championships in Brisbane.

In the final of the girls 10 and

under singles final the 10-yearold

faced No 1 seed Sarah Bigg.

Earlier in the week the Australian

defeated Lucia in pool play at the

Rod Laver lead in tournament

6-4, 4-6, 10-8. However, Lucia

took the spoils on the big stage

winning 6-3, 6-1.

Lucia also reached the final of

the 10 and under girls doubles

in Brisbane with Christchurch’s

Alex Wylie. The pair won three

matches before succumbing to

No 1 seeds Frangipani Tsai and

Valenova Tsai 2-6, 5-7.

In singles Lucia went undefeated

through her five pool matches

to advance to the quarter finals

with a record of 60-2 on games.

Lucia accounted for Australia’s

Summer Osbourne in the quarter

final 6-1, 6-1 before a tough semifinal

win over Australian Morgan

Lyall. After dropping the first set

4-6 Lucia recovered to win the

second set 6-4. The match was

decided by a super tie-breaker

which Lucia won 10-2.

Last week Lucia returned home

and continued her fine form to

win the girls 12 and under title

at the Canterbury Junior Winter

tournament at Wilding Park.

Lucia won all five of her

matches, dropping just two games

on her way to the title.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

Little Chummy steals hearts

“Does it go?” It was the question on everyone’s lips when they first laid eyes on

Dee and Jim Nunan’s much-admired and loved 1928 Austin 7 Chummy C-Cab van.

The question was asked so many times that the couple

decided to buy a number plate that clearly stated that

the little van did indeed go with the words: IT GOES.

For Jim Nunan the purchase 16 years ago of ‘Little

Chummy,’ as the Austin is fondly referred to, was not

only to satisfy his passion for vintage cars but also

to find a little vehicle that suited their restored 1881

cottage, known as The Old Parsonage in Waddington.

Jim first spotted Little Chummy for sale at a tractor/

farm machinery day in Kirwee. He contacted the

owner and was taken for a ride so fast that he had to

hang on tight.

“It felt like 100 miles per hour; it was a bit too fast for

the little van,” he says.

The price was agreed upon and the Austin was

delivered by a transporter. “We didn’t drive her home

as there was a screaming nor’wester blowing.”

Little Chummy has been a pleasure to own ever

since. “It always gets a warrant,” says Jim and with a

new battery installed he no longer needs to resort to

the crank handle to get her started.

Over the years, Jim has had a few instances, usually

out on the open road, where modern cars and trucks

dwarf the little Austin.

“I’m always conscious of other traffic behind me

and have had a few big trucks suddenly appear from

nowhere,” says Jim. “One day I had a man in a fourwheel-drive

tooting his horn at me, and when I finally

pulled over, he told me that my back wheel was wobbly.

The wheel nuts had come loose.”

Jim has kept the van in the original condition he

bought it, and apart from keeping the van polished and

protected from the weather, the only additions have

been signwriting and some shelves in the back.

“We used to take the van to shows and Homebush

open days. We’d open up the back doors and display

Dee’s miniatures.” The miniatures referred to were part

of Dee’s collection that she still has on display at The

Old Parsonage.

A lifelong passion for cars over the years has seen Jim

restore many a vehicle from the ground up; however,

nowadays he is content with his little Austin 7 Chummy

and the 1939 Austin 10, which he fully restored and

now keeps in storage.

Jim still enjoys getting little Chummy out for a

polish and is often seen taking her for a spin around

the block, giving locals and motorists cause to take a

second glance at the rare and delightful sight as the

little van passes by.

LIFELONG PASSION: Jim Nunan loves vintage

cars and enjoys spending time with his 90-yearold

1928 Austin Chummy C-Cab van.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Stay safe

on the road

this winter

While the shortest day might have been

and gone for the year, there will no doubt be

more wintry weather to come over the next

few weeks, so it’s important to keep your

vehicle in a safe, roadworthy condition.

Icy roads can be a serious and slippery

hazard in Canterbury, especially early in

the morning, so you need to have plenty of

tread on the tyres. Greasy, wet roads also

make for hazardous driving conditions,

with adequate tyre tread needed to avoid

aquaplaning, which can be a frightening

experience.

Now that WOF checks are only required

once a year, rather than every six months,

it’s easy to overlook tyre condition, so make

sure you check the tread depth yourself, or

have the tyres checked at your local tyre

specialist.

Wet weather can also create potholes in

the road, which can damage your vehicle’s

suspension, so watch out for those and

avoid if possible.

Having anti-freeze in the radiator and a

good battery is another important factor in

winter – an unresponsive battery is the last

thing you need on a freezing cold morning

when you need to get to work.

Dark, unlit rural roads can make driving

difficult in bad weather, so headlights, brake

lights and tail lights need to be functioning

properly, allowing you to see the road

ahead, and other motorists to see you.

Your local motorcare professionals

can help keep your vehicle in tip-top

condition so you and your family can

stay safe on the roads this winter, or

they can repair it if you are unfortunate

enough to have an accident.

They offer: WOF, panel repairs, full

engine servicing, auto electrical repairs,

tyre replacements and battery checks

and replacement.

PETS & PAWS

Kitten season on its way

Become a responsible pet

owner and help reduce the

population of unwanted cats

in your neighbourhood

Late spring to mid autumn is generally known as the kitten season.

Just two cats and all their offspring,

producing at least two litters a year, with

2.8 surviving kittens per litter, can be

responsible for 11 million cats in just nine

years! A kitten can get pregnant as early as

four to five months of age and go on to have

up to three litters a year!

It’s not just females that need to be

neutered. Many owners turn a blind eye

to their male ‘tom’ cats and allow them to

roam at will, impregnating as many females

as they encounter. With feline AIDS (FIV)

prevalent in the cat community, it’s vital

to have males neutered in order to reduce

spread via cat fights.

With these statistics in mind, it’s not hard

to see why it’s important to have your cat

neutered as early as possible.

Selwyn Veterinary Centre veterinarian

Yolande Howell says it’s important to keep

younger animals indoors until they are old

enough to be neutered.

“Your vet will be able to advise you

when the best time is to neuter your pet,”

says Yolande. “The procedures are done

under general anaesthesia, and you will

be amazed how well animals recover from

their operations.”

Neutering means the removal of an

animal’s reproductive organ. In males, it is

commonly referred to as castration, and in

females, it is referred to as speying.

“The benefits of neutering are numerous

and may prevent diseases such as testicular

cancer in males and mammary cancer in

females.”

• Have your male or female cat

neutered at your local veterinary

clinic as soon as possible

• Have any kittens neutered

before rehoming

• Help a friend or member

of your family to get their cat

neutered

NEUTERING SAVES LIVES

talk to your local vet to

neuter your pet

Neutering can also reduce unwanted

behaviours such as urine spraying or

marking. A neutered male cat is more

likely to stay at home and less likely to be

involved in fights with other males, while

a neutered female is less likely to attract

unwanted attention.

discuss getting your cat neutered today.

Be smart with the way you plant

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Rachel Vogan

AUGUST IS a beautiful month

in the garden, the first of the

bulbs are adding a sparkle of

colour to the ground and many

trees, shrubs and perennials

are stepping up to the plate and

flowering.

And while it still may be cold

outdoors, remember with smart

planting you can place these

colourful plants in spots where

you can see them from indoors.

flowers of these every week for

my posies, and this forces the

wallflower to produce more

stems, which in turn means more

flowers. Plant in full sun; it is

durable to hot and cold and does

cope with poor soils. A good

haircut once a year is all it needs.

Expect a good five years out of

the plant, these wallflowers are

not long-lived but are easy to

grow from stem cuttings in late

spring. It is also a good pollinator

plant too.

NEMESIA ‘STRAWBERRY

RIPPLE’

Look for this if you are after

a little firepower to take you

through the last month of winter

and all the way through spring.

It’s ideal for patio tubs, window

boxes or baskets and garden beds.

While these plants may seem

like they wouldn’t handle much

cold, they do. However, don’t go

making them struggle in an open

garden bed in the coldest regions.

Instead, plant them where they

have some protection from the

house and obviously near a

window so that you can see them

often.

EARLY STACHYURUS

Consider planting the deciduous

Stachyurus praecox as an anchor

tenant shrub that has high winter

and spring interest. Golden

yellow catkin-like flowers appear

in clusters from the still dormant

branches for the next two to three

months, commanding attention

and grabbing your eye. Once the

flowers finish, the plant cloaks

itself in soft green leaves until

June, when it ditches its foliage

to take a rest for a few months.

Happy in the sun or shade, allow

one to 2m in width for it to grow.

ERYSIMUM × HYBRIDA

‘WINTER JOY’

This mid-sized (80cm) evergreen

perennial packs a punch over the

coldest months when it sprinkles

its bright green foliage with stem

after stem of lilac blooms. I pick

LEUCADENDRON

SALIGNUM ‘FIREGLOW’

Leucadendrons are great for

bold statements of colour and

arm-loads of flowers to pick over

the cold months. As the name

suggests, ‘Fireglow’ has vibrant

tones of red, burnt orange and

glowing yellows. It is an easy

to grow, mid-sized compact

shrub, which requires full sun

and excellent drainage to thrive.

Pots and tubs are a good option;

however, they need to be large as

leucadendrons loathe cramped

root zones and grow 1.5m tall.

Cut the flower stems back once

the blooms have finished to

encourage more flower stems for

the following year.

PSEUDOWINTERA

COLORATA ‘RED LEOPARD’

I have been a huge fan and

advocate for this plant for years.

This plant is a hybrid of our

native pepper tree found in

bush areas in many parts of the

country. The dark-red, spotted

leaves intensify over the colder

months, making this plant stand

out. And what’s good about it is

that it seems to grow better in

poor free-draining soils rather

than richer ones where more

nutrients are available. Full sun is

best, although it will cope with a

smidge of shade.

CAMELLIA RETICULATA

‘LOVELY LADY’

With a name like this, and a

flower form and colour to match,

this recently introduced camellia

variety is widely popular. The

large double pink flowers appear

from August and last until around

Labour Weekend. Preferring

semi-shade, this plant is an option

for larger tubs, urns and raised

planters. This is a real statement

plant; use it to create a focal point

or even consider planting it as a

hedge or screen.

FOCAL POINT:

Wallflower ‘Winter

Joy’ prefers semishade.

It is an

option for larger

tubs, urns and

raised planters.

BOLD STATEMENT: Leucadendron

salignum ‘Fireglow’ is a mid-sized

compact shrub, which requires full sun

and excellent drainage to thrive.

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 sments 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 willing

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 which 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 themselves 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 stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jones 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

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments are expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen 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 apartments suffered 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 WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l this stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting more experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing is scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“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.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

“You can just about guarant e

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

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

What you need to know

when you’re buying to let

Buying a property is always a big deal,

whether you’re planning to live in it

yourself or not. Nearly 40 per cent of New

Zealand property buyers already own

multiple properties, according to recent

data from CoreLogic, but that doesn’t make

buying one as an investment any less of a

bold move.

If you’re thinking about buying an

investment property it’s crucial to do all

your homework about the ups and downs

of both investing in property and becoming

a landlord. There’s a lot to take into account,

such as the tax implications if the property

is re-sold within two years (or five, when

the new Government implements its

plans). Some councils levy rates differently

depending on how a property is used,

which can add significantly to your costs,

and insuring a tenanted property can cost

more because rentals are more subject to

damage.

When you’re buying a property that is

vacant you are generally entitled to one

opportunity to a final inspection of it before

settlement (when you pay the balance of the

money to the seller and get the keys). This

inspection is to make sure that it’s in the

same or better order as when you viewed

it and agreed to the sale. If you’re buying

a property with sitting tenants this process

is more difficult and can raise all sorts of

issues.

To make sure you can still conduct a final

inspection, we recommend asking your

lawyer to ensure there is a ‘final inspection’

clause inserted in the sale and purchase

agreement before you sign it. If you’re

buying a property by auction, you will have

to negotiate this with the seller (through

the real estate agent) before the auction

takes place. You’ll also have to make this

a condition of the sale if buying by tender

or deadline sale, if not agreed prior. Your

lawyer can help you navigate this process.

You may also wish to seek advice about

getting a methamphetamine test included

as a condition of the sale.

A change of ownership also doesn’t mean

you have the immediate right to ask the

current tenants to move out. Generally

speaking, under the Residential Tenancies

Act tenants must be given at least 42 days’

notice to leave a property. If you want

the property to be empty when you take

ownership, you may need to negotiate a

longer settlement period with the seller

to enable this. If you’re taking over the

property with the tenants in place for the

remainder of their tenancy agreement, the

previous owner must let the tenants know

that you are the new owner and give you

a copy of the existing tenancy agreement.

When you take over ownership, you must

tell the tenants your name and contact

details, and advise them how their rent is

to be paid. If someone else is managing the

property for you, let the tenants know who

to contact in case of any issues.

Most tenancies require a bond to be paid

as security in case of any damage or unpaid

rent. When a tenanted property is sold, the

seller cannot make a claim to any bond

unless this is done before the property

changes hands. It’s a good idea to check

with your lawyer that any bond conditions

are spelled out in the sale and purchase

agreement.

Lastly, don’t forget to factor in that buying

an investment property also requires you

to become a landlord with a long list of

responsibilities to your tenants. It’s your

investment, but it’s their home.

selling property, check out www.reaa.

Should you sell

your house in

winter?

Selling a property in winter may seem to go against received wisdom,

but there are plenty of reasons why it can be a good idea.

It’s hard to ignore powerful or compelling

reasons like a change in your work, financial

or family circumstances, or because the

timing seems right. In addition, there are

several other, more tangible upsides to

selling in winter.

Firstly, there are often fewer houses on

the market so there’s less competition. Your

property is less likely to be lost in a swarm

of listings and it will be easy to make it stand

out. People who are looking to buy at this

time of year are usually highly motivated

because they need a home sooner rather

than later. The upside of this is that you may

get fewer ‘tyre-kickers’ than in the warmer

months – and increased demand will often

result in higher prices.

If you’re selling your property with a

real estate agent, you need to mine their

experience. When you’re choosing an agent,

ask them how houses in your area sell over

the colder months. It’s in their interests

to make sure the sale of your property is

as advantageous as possible; if they think

you’ll be better off waiting a couple of

months, they should tell you. They should

also work with you to work out the best

times to hold open homes or viewings,

taking in account shorter sunlight hours.

You want your property to look attractive,

inviting and easy to look after – and there

are plenty of practical steps you can take

to make it seem an attractive proposition

on a cold winter’s day. Now’s the time to

fix any leaks, cracked windows or sticking

doors or broken drains. All the usual rules

for preparing a home for sale will apply -

your buzzwords should be decluttering and

deep-cleaning. If it has good insulation

and an efficient heating system, make sure

these factors are included in any marketing.

Ensure the house is warm and dry during

any viewings.

Don’t forget that people will want to

look around the outdoor areas too -

sweep or waterblast paths, mulch garden

beds and clear gutters. If your garden is

picture-perfect in summer and spring,

consider making some photos available so

prospective buyers can see what they’ve got

to look forward to. A few colourful plants in

pots will also help brighten outdoor spaces

and a new letterbox or freshly painted front

fence or gate will do wonders for your

property’s street appeal.

Prepare well and there’s no reason why

you can’t successfully sell your property

before the weather warms up. Sell now and

you’ll hopefully have lots of properties to

choose from when you start scanning the

market in spring.

New shopping centre

in Lincoln

Lincoln is experiencing strong growth, and that is the reason,

says Broadfield Estates Mike Hobbs, for the development of the

newly finished shopping complex at 3 Vernon Drive, opposite

New World Supermarket.

“Lincoln is continuing to grow, and

there is some demand for a wider range of

businesses and services in the community,”

says Mr Hobbs.

With up to 1200 new sections still due to

be released from three large subdivisions,

the pressure and demand on current

services in the township is more significant

than ever.

Mr Hobbs says the Vernon Drive

shopping complex offers 11 commercial

spaces, with five businesses already open

to the public including The Flaming Rabbit

Bar & Eatery, Robert Harris, Domino’s

Pizza, Motus Lincoln Physiotherapy,

Liquorland and shortly Lincoln Integrated

Health Doctor and Pharmacy, plus a

provision for a large gym.

“We are very pleased to have Integrated

Health on board and know that having this

extra facility available will be well received

within the community.”

There are three units still available

to lease, ranging in sizes from 114m2

to 147m2. Possible businesses could

be offices, health-related or another

hospitality, complimentary to but not

competing with existing tenants.

Sixty-two carparks are incorporated into

the complex to make shopping easy and

stress-free. Mike says Lincoln locals prefer

to park outside the shop they are visiting

and believes plenty of parking spaces

to be an essential part of any shopping

development.

In the past, Broadfields Estates has

developed two other shopping complexes

in Lincoln including the Gerald and

Maurice Street corner and 5 Robert

St. The next development is to be a

neighbourhood centre at 4 Vernon Drive

next door to the supermarket.

With an estimated 7500 people living in

Lincoln, the needs of the community are

continuing to grow and Broadfield Estates

is seeking to cater for this growth with

well-located premises and good parking.

To find out more about leasing a

unit on Vernon Drive or about further

developments, call Mike Hobbs on 0275
