big thank you to<br />

West Melton<br />

West Melton School pupils Cam and Max have been sent a thank you letter and photo from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. The<br />

year 3 pupils sent Ms Ardern hand-made cards on coloured paper with personal messages and name suggestions, as well as<br />

one large card with a class photo on the front, congratulating her on the safe arrival of her baby, Neve. The pupils were happy<br />

to receive the letter as they had never received a personal letter from a prime minister before. Said Ms Ardern: “I absolutely<br />

loved them, and had so much fun looking at all the brilliant drawings and notes you included (even the envelope was beautifully<br />

decorated).” Ms Ardern said during a Facebook live video on Sunday she was “roughly a week out from being officially back on<br />

deck, give or take”.<br />

DISTRICT COUNCILLOR Jeff Bland gives<br />

a great insight into quarrying on page 4<br />

today.<br />

Quarrying is what it is. You cut into the<br />

land for material; you need heavy machinery<br />

and vehicles; and often there is blasting. So it is noisy, dusty<br />

and when it is wet, muddy.<br />

Anyone living nearby cops the problems.<br />

Coming soon is a battle between Templeton and Weedons<br />

residents living close to the planned Fulton Hogan quarry.<br />

It will bring all of the problems mentioned above.<br />

In his column, Bland gives a great example of how a quarry<br />

affected one family’s life.<br />

If the quarry in Templeton is to be stopped from causing the<br />

same issues to many others, there will need to be a number of<br />

The backstory of<br />

T he A natomy of M elancholy • P art i: I dentity<br />

by<br />

Simon van der Sluijs<br />

*Melancholy: a feeling of pensive sadness, typically with no obvious cause.<br />

**Identity: the fact of being who or what a person or thing is.<br />

I have always been fascinated by trying to visualise human nature, who are we, what<br />

drives us, what moves us, and my personal experiences were more than enough to<br />

explore. A trilogy to allow myself to create a deeper narrative to be more universal<br />

and existential rather than being just about me. I chose ‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’<br />

because I feel that it best represents my work and the person I am. Part 1 is about<br />

identity because to me it is the source of melancholy and so that is where the trilogy<br />

needs to start. It shows drawings, paintings and small objects.<br />

Generally the work on show deals with the desire to belong, to be allowed to be, through<br />

confirmation of our fellow beings, and of getting damaged in the process.<br />

There are two separate sections within the exhibition: ‘Little Sorrows’ and ‘Intimacies’<br />

Little Sorrows<br />

Our pets contribute to our identity. Inevitably having a pet also means that the day will<br />

come we have to farewell it ‘Little Sorrows’ is what can happen when we can’t let go<br />

and try to either recreate the friend we were so fond of or make an effort in taxidermy<br />

to preserve through small paintings of mice, hamsters and goldfish and faux taxidermy<br />

objects, mainly in ‘museum boxes’ and under bell jars.<br />

Intimacies (Explicit content)<br />

Sexual identity is the way we think of ourselves in relationship to whom we are<br />

romantically or sexually attracted to. Growing up in a Catholic environment sexuality was<br />

definitely not a topic of discussion or acknowledged as an important part of being. This is<br />

the reason I have made these paintings so small, they fit in a locket and can therefore be<br />

‘locked away’ only to be enjoyed in a private atmosphere.<br />

Part 1 Identity <strong>August</strong> 2<strong>01</strong>8, Part 2 Dissectum April 2<strong>01</strong>9 and Part 3 Lost and Found<br />

Cattle banned from<br />

school pet days due to M. bovis<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

CATTLE HAVE been banned<br />

from attending some <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

school pet days in a bid to stop<br />

the spread of mycoplasma bovis.<br />

Ellesmere College, Leeston<br />

Consolidated School, Southbridge<br />

School and Ladbrooks<br />

School have all taken a stand<br />

against the cattle disease.<br />

In March, the Government<br />

signed off on the culling of<br />

thousands of animals in a bid to<br />

eradicate the disease.<br />

The Ellesmere Agricultural<br />

Science and Technology club<br />

runs the annual pet day for<br />

Leeston Consolidated School,<br />

Southbridge School and year 7<br />

and 8s students from Ellesmere<br />

College.<br />

Club president Jo Benny said<br />

there will be no cattle on site<br />

during its pet day on November<br />

2, but there may be an electronic<br />

solution.<br />

“I have signed up to a Facebook<br />

page that are looking to<br />

start an online calf club, so kids<br />

can still present their pet calves,<br />

just electronically,” she said.<br />

Mrs Benny said it was “bound<br />

by” the Ellesmere A & P Show’s<br />

decision not to have cattle, as it<br />

BANNED: Cattle have been banned from some <strong>Selwyn</strong> school<br />

pet days to prevent the spread of mycoplasma bovis.<br />

holds its pet days at the showgrounds.<br />

In spite of the ban, Ladbrooks<br />

School is hopeful judges may be<br />

able to visit each property and<br />

assess the cattle individually.<br />

On Friday, the number of<br />

active infected properties with<br />

mycoplasma bovis in Canterbury<br />

was 19, said a Ministry for<br />

Primary Industries report.<br />

Ellesmere A & P Show<br />

2<strong>01</strong>9<br />

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 2 MARCH 2<strong>01</strong>9<br />

president Trevor Hobson said it<br />

made the call to ban cattle as the<br />

disease is present in <strong>Selwyn</strong> and<br />

it cannot risk spreading it any<br />

further.<br />

“It was a commonsense<br />

decision. There will be<br />

no backlash from it. It is<br />

disappointing to see it happen,<br />

but it was the sensible decision to<br />

make,” Mr Hobson said.<br />

He was uncertain as to how<br />

long it would be until the show<br />

would accept cattle entries again.<br />

However, cattle classes will<br />

be included in November’s<br />

Canterbury A & P Show.<br />

Show staff said it is<br />

exploring measures to limit<br />

the risk of mycoplasma bovis<br />

contamination.<br />

More than 50 cattle breeders<br />

and show staff attended an<br />

exhibitors meeting recently, with<br />

the majority indicating they<br />

were willing to show stock at the<br />

Your Local Views<br />

Keep quarries away from residents<br />

District<br />

councillor<br />

Jeff Bland<br />

writes about<br />

his opinion on<br />

quarrying<br />

RECENTLY I received an<br />

email, which read “as our<br />

elected representative what is<br />

your personal view about the<br />

quarry that Fulton Hogan wish<br />

to establish at the corner of<br />

Dawsons and Curraghs Rds, near<br />

Templeton?”<br />

Before I share with you my<br />

reply I will tell you a little bit<br />

about me.<br />

A fair while ago I worked for<br />

a large organisation that owned<br />

and operated a number of<br />

quarries. The stone from these<br />

quarries was used in river work<br />

and stop bank protection.<br />

I was young and working in<br />

this environment was exciting.<br />

Quarries were noisy, dusty and<br />

dangerous. I loved handling the<br />

explosives, operating the drilling<br />

rigs and jackhammers.<br />

It was hard dirty work but well<br />

paid and rewarding.<br />

The biggest quarry we worked<br />

was a huge towering cliff, not<br />

benched, nearly 125m in height.<br />

It was in a rural farmland<br />

environment.<br />

OPINION: District councillor Jeff Bland writes about why he<br />

believes quarries “must be” located well away from existing<br />

houses.<br />

Unfortunately, there was one<br />

house located about 200m from<br />

the quarry entrance. The owner<br />

of this house we will call Mr<br />

Smith.<br />

It would be fair to say that Mr<br />

Smith hated us quarry workers<br />

for very good reason. His home<br />

was constantly exposed to the<br />

stone dust drifting out of the<br />

quarry.<br />

He was tortured by the<br />

incessant hammering of<br />

the drilling rig and the jack<br />

hammers. The noise of trucks<br />

grinding their way out to the<br />

weighbridge, then to the quarry<br />

entrance directly opposite his<br />

front gate was relentless.<br />

His children trudging home<br />

from school had to walk through<br />

the often wet grass, the roads<br />

were busy, the trucks large and<br />

often overloaded.<br />

If this wasn’t bad enough,<br />

after one quarry blast, a piece<br />

of granite the size of a football<br />

crashed through the roof of his<br />

house.<br />

Mr Smith often used to stand<br />

opposite the quarry shaking his<br />

fist and cursing us.<br />

The boss said to ignore him<br />

as he was just a bit nuts. Back<br />

then if you stood in the way of<br />

progress you were belittled. Mr<br />

Smith was just one voice and the<br />

quarry owners were many.<br />

The quarry has been closed<br />

for many years now. Mr Smith’s<br />

house may still have the<br />

mismatched sheet of corrugated<br />

iron on the roof.<br />

The rivers are confined by the<br />

stop banks, the farmers have<br />

prospered and everyone has<br />

forgotten what happened.<br />

But I haven’t. I see the<br />

similarities to the Templeton<br />

situation. Small man versus large<br />

company shareholders wanting<br />

to maximise its profit.<br />

The noise, the dust, the trucks<br />

grinding their way from the<br />

quarry floor onto roads not<br />

designed for their size or weight,<br />

kids walking in the grass. The<br />

company employees are just<br />

doing their job. I accept that<br />

we need gravel for roads. It is<br />

progress, but progress comes<br />

at a cost not usually borne by<br />

company shareholders.<br />

Now getting back to my reply.<br />

I am of the opinion that quarries<br />

must be located well away from<br />

existing houses.<br />

In this case, there will no<br />

doubt be arguments put forward<br />

by those promoting the quarry<br />

and those opposing it.<br />

I suspect that this will end<br />

up going through a hearing<br />

process and a commissioner<br />

will be appointed to listen to<br />

both arguments. It will be in this<br />

forum that the matter will be<br />

decided. However, don’t underestimate<br />

the power of public<br />

opinion. Those that are worried<br />

about the location of this quarry<br />

should voice their concern, stand<br />

united. Public opinion may well<br />

influence the outcome.<br />

Don’t be like Mr Smith,<br />

shaking your fist and cursing<br />

the workers once the quarry is<br />

operating will be pointless.<br />

•This is my opinion only<br />

and should not be construed<br />

as an opinion of the district<br />

council<br />

FLAIR FOR FASHION: Kim and Paul Strange are looking forward to seeing their design on stage<br />

Designers on world stage<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

DOYLESTON designer Loretta<br />

Sloan and Prebbleton couple Kim<br />

and Paul Strange are finalists<br />

in the World of Wearable Art<br />

awards.<br />

About 60,000 people are<br />

expected to attend WOW’s 30th<br />

season in Wellington from September<br />

27 to October 14.<br />

Mrs Strange, who is the driving<br />

force behind Art Couture<br />

NZ’s wearable arts competition,<br />

said their design was based on<br />

the sense of sight and incorporates<br />

recyclable materials.<br />

She said her husband, who<br />

works in information technology,<br />

brought a practical aspect to<br />

their team, while she’s the creative<br />

influence.<br />

“It’s been really good and it’s<br />

actually been really cool doing it<br />

together,” Mrs Strange said.<br />

She said it took them about<br />

six months to put the design<br />

together, working in their spare<br />

time.<br />

They were looking forward to<br />

travelling up to Wellington to see<br />

their design on the stage.<br />

“We’ve already talked about<br />

DEVELOPMENT: A resource consent application has been<br />

received for a Fresh Choice supermarket and retail facility in<br />

Prebbleton. ​<br />

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall,<br />

who lives in Prebbleton and is<br />

committee, said the plan<br />

was “fantastic.”<br />

“It’s the sort of services our<br />

Mr Lyall said some Prebbleton<br />

residents might be a “little negative”<br />

about it but on the whole,<br />

people will be supportive.<br />

In February, resource consent<br />

was granted for a major<br />

redevelopment of the Prebbleton<br />

CHANGES: The district council will build a fence in the Rolleston dog park<br />

within the next few weeks.<br />

Fence to separate club<br />

and public at dog park<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

A FENCE will be built at the Rolleston<br />

dog park so part of it can be closed off to<br />

the public at certain times.<br />

The fence will separate off the area used<br />

by the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Dog Training Club.<br />

The district council is behind the idea,<br />

which will take place at the<br />

Foster Park Dog Exercise Area<br />

on the corner of Springston,<br />

Rolleston and Goulds Rds.<br />

District council major projects<br />

property manager John<br />

Reid said the fence is a result<br />

of complaints from people<br />

about training sessions being<br />

difficult to conduct when other<br />

dogs are running through the<br />

area.<br />

“Public dog owners are also<br />

finding it hard to supervise<br />

their dogs without interrupting<br />

dog training,” he said.<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> Dog Training Club uses<br />

the park on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and<br />

Thursdays from 6.30-9pm, on Sundays<br />

from 10am-noon and on the occasional<br />

weekend for competitions.<br />

Mr Reid said the exact size of the fence<br />

has not been decided, but design work<br />

should be completed in the next few<br />

weeks.<br />

“The total area of the proposed fenced<br />

area will be less than half the dog park,”<br />

he said.<br />

Although the district council is still<br />

John Reid<br />

waiting on final quotes for the fence,<br />

Mr Reid said it’s expected to cost about<br />

$5000-$7000.<br />

“This cost has been budgeted for in the<br />

council forward budgets,” he said.<br />

Mr Reid said the fence will be a<br />

permanent structure. However, it is<br />

described as “temporary” because it will<br />

have a number of large gates<br />

that will be left open, except<br />

when the club is running a<br />

training session.<br />

“For the vast majority of<br />

the time, the whole park will<br />

continue to be available for use<br />

by the general public,” he said.<br />

Rolleston resident Mark<br />

Melhuish and his dogs use the<br />

park twice daily. He said the<br />

district council’s decision to<br />

build a fence in the park was “a<br />

little bit ridiculous.”<br />

“By cutting the park in half,<br />

you’re not actually able to run your dogs at<br />

a full speed across the park really,” he said.<br />

Mr Melhuish said with Rolleston’s growing<br />

population, the club should look at an<br />

alternative facility.<br />

“You’re ruining a perfectly good park for<br />

the sake of a minority group,” he said.<br />

However, Mr Reid said the district<br />

council supports the club’s activities in the<br />

park. “It was this club that originally advocated<br />

for the dog park, which it believed<br />

could be used by both the club and the<br />

general public,” he said.<br />

Katelyn Twiss<br />

Ellesmere teenager thriving in<br />

Although only 15-years-old, Leeston’s Katelyn Twiss has taken on<br />

leadership roles at Ellesmere College, the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Youth Council<br />

and Students Against Dangerous Driving. Emily O’Connell talks<br />

to her about balancing school work with her busy lifestyle<br />

Can you tell me about<br />

the different things you are<br />

involved in?<br />

I’m on the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Youth<br />

Council, I’m actually the deputy<br />

chair. I’m a national leader for<br />

SADD, which is Students<br />

Against Dangerous Driving. I<br />

play rugby on Wednesdays for<br />

the Forward Foundation. The<br />

Forward Foundation allows us<br />

to play because there’s a mixture<br />

of different schools which don’t<br />

have enough for one team so<br />

we just combine and play on<br />

Wednesdays. It’s good, there’s<br />

only about four of us from Ellesmere<br />

who play. I’m also a prefect<br />

at school.<br />

Can you tell me about<br />

speaking at the Local<br />

Government New Zealand<br />

conference in Christchurch<br />

recently?<br />

It was so exciting because it<br />

was just such a big platform to<br />

be able to speak at and to be able<br />

to represent the youth council at<br />

such a high level and talk about<br />

what we’ve done was honestly<br />

such an honour. I found it more<br />

exciting than nerve-racking.<br />

Did you feel nervous at all?<br />

Yes I did a little bit. I think I<br />

was just more nervous because<br />

I just didn’t want to muck up on<br />

stage, but then by the end of the<br />

day, my excitement contained<br />

my nerves so it was really good.<br />

Who were you most excited to<br />

meet at the conference?<br />

We didn’t get to see everyone<br />

because it was a three-day event<br />

and we were only there for our<br />

session. Mark Sainsbury was the<br />

host, it was pretty cool to meet<br />

him.<br />

What did you take away from<br />

the experience?<br />

Definitely public speaking<br />

skills and just to be confident<br />

and just get up there and speak<br />

because it was a once in a lifetime<br />

experience.<br />

How long have you played<br />

rugby?<br />

I’ve been playing rugby my<br />

whole life. So I started when I<br />

was young. I started playing with<br />

the guys when I was five-yearsold,<br />

and then when I hit year 9,<br />

I transitioned from playing on<br />

weekends, because I got too old<br />

to playing on Wednesdays for<br />

school.<br />

Is rugby your favourite sport?<br />

One of them, yeah. I really<br />

like basketball as well but I don’t<br />

play it.<br />

Do you play any other<br />

sports?<br />

No.<br />

How did you get involved<br />

in SADD?<br />

Last year I attended one<br />

of their local events at<br />

the <strong>Selwyn</strong> council<br />

building. I was<br />

like “oh, I will<br />

go along,<br />

it will be<br />

good to<br />

get it going in school.” From<br />

there that progressed to going<br />

to the conference last<br />

year, which was held in<br />

Christchurch, and then<br />

there were a few of<br />

us at school who<br />

said, ‘right, let’s do<br />

some activities<br />

around SADD at<br />

school’ because it<br />

had kind of been<br />

a bit absent in our<br />

school for a while.<br />

The other students<br />

were year<br />

13 so this year I<br />

was really keen to<br />

go to the conference<br />

again and try<br />

get SADD going<br />

in school because I<br />

think it’s just such a<br />

good organisation. The<br />

national leadership<br />

programme is open to<br />

year 12 students so I<br />

thought why not just<br />

go for it? Because<br />

it’s such a good<br />

thing to be involved<br />

with<br />

and I just<br />

really<br />

wanted<br />

to be involved<br />

and<br />

help<br />

at a<br />

LEADER: Leeston’s Katelyn Twiss, 15, is a deputy prefect at Ellesmere College.<br />

national level with SADD, rather<br />

than just within my school. So<br />

I applied for it and I was really<br />

fortunate to get in.<br />

How did you come to<br />

be deputy prefect at just<br />

15-years-old?<br />

I just love getting involved in<br />

anything to do with whanau<br />

spirit in school. And this year<br />

there was an opening for a year<br />

12 student to be a deputy prefect.<br />

They asked me and I said why<br />

not? Then I was lucky enough to<br />

get the position as well.<br />

How did you feel when you<br />

were announced as deputy<br />

prefect?<br />

I wasn’t at school as I was on a<br />

geography field trip, but I when<br />

got the news I was really happy.<br />

Does being involved in a lot<br />

of different activities get too<br />

much sometimes?<br />

Definitely, because I always put<br />

school work first so, especially<br />

now in year 12, it can get quite<br />

overwhelming sometimes. I also<br />

do admin work on Tuesdays<br />

and Thursdays after school<br />

at Cochranes of Canterbury<br />

in Leeston. So it gets quite<br />

overwhelming sometimes, but I<br />

have good support around me.<br />

I have a really great family who<br />

are always keen to help me out<br />

and are always there for me and<br />

a really great group of friends.<br />

When did you join the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Youth Council?<br />

When I was in year 10, I went<br />

on a youth leadership weekend,<br />

which I just saw an ad in the<br />

newspaper for, and I was like<br />

“sweet, I’ll just go for it.” And<br />

then I got accepted into that and<br />

it was run by the youth council,<br />

and it was sort of introducing us<br />

to leadership, which I think was<br />

really cool. In year 11, so<br />

last year, we had to apply the<br />

year before, I applied for it and<br />

I was really fortunate to get in<br />

as well. It’s a two-year term so<br />

this is my second year on youth<br />

council.<br />

Will you apply again next<br />

year?<br />

Definitely. It’s been such a<br />

rewarding experience for me.<br />

leadership roles<br />

Whitecliffs<br />

loses identity<br />

to Glentunnel<br />

INSPIRATION: <strong>Selwyn</strong> Youth Council deputy chairwoman Katelyn Twiss (right) looks up to her<br />

friend and chairwoman Paige Sullivan.<br />

What has been the most<br />

rewarding project you’ve been<br />

involved in?<br />

Probably the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Link bus<br />

trial, which is what we’re doing at<br />

the youth council at the moment.<br />

So it’s been a two-year process<br />

and we’re finally coming towards<br />

the end part. We’ve had the trial<br />

for the bus between Southbridge<br />

and Darfield and Darfield to<br />

Southbridge via Rolleston, and<br />

now we are finally in a position<br />

where we can do something<br />

about it.<br />

How do you balance school<br />

work with everything else going<br />

on?<br />

I think I just have to make sure<br />

that I always know what is going<br />

on and I just have to plan ahead.<br />

So with assessments and stuff, I<br />

have to make sure I know when<br />

they are due and I always have<br />

time set aside for them and I just<br />

make sure I get them done.<br />

What would you like to do<br />

when you finish high school?<br />

I really want to do a law degree<br />

and where I go from that, I’m<br />

not quite that sure, but I want a<br />

career involved in law.<br />

Why law?<br />

I don’t really have an exact<br />

reason why, I’ve always just<br />

gravitated towards stuff<br />

surrounding it. I find it really<br />

interesting and I want to explore<br />

it more as I grow older.<br />

What’s your favourite thing<br />

to do to relax?<br />

Listen to music. I just love<br />

listening to music and just<br />

chilling out. Sometimes I play<br />

on my guitar a bit and hanging<br />

out with friends and going to<br />

the gym as well I find that quite<br />

relaxing.<br />

Are you quite musical?<br />

I used to be really heavily<br />

involved in singing when I was<br />

younger but now it’s more of a<br />

hobby, I just sing and play the<br />

guitar when I have time.<br />

Do you have any siblings?<br />

I do. I have twin sisters, Laura<br />

and Emma, who are 19-yearsold.<br />

They both live in Dunedin<br />

and one studies at Otago<br />

University and one studies at the<br />

polytechnic in Otago.<br />

Who do you look up to?<br />

My friend Paige Sullivan,<br />

who is the chair of the youth<br />

council. I think she inspired me<br />

to get involved in a lot of things<br />

because she did that herself.<br />

It’s really rewarding having her<br />

as a friend but also someone I<br />

can look up to and see all the<br />

amazing things she does and<br />

then it motivates me to get<br />

involved in anything I can.<br />

What is your favourite subject<br />

at school and why?<br />

Oh, that’s a tough one.<br />

Surprisingly, I actually really<br />

like geography, I’m finding it<br />

really good this year. I do love<br />

english because it allows you to<br />

be perceptive so you can relate<br />

things to the real world.<br />

What has been the most<br />

valuable lesson you’ve learnt?<br />

I think just be yourself. When<br />

I’m just myself, I feel really<br />

good and I know that I’m<br />

being true to myself and it can<br />

sometimes reflect on other<br />

people as well.<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-<br />

Harding<br />

FIRE OFFICERS in<br />

Wellington have upset<br />

residents living in Whitecliffs<br />

by telling them they live in<br />

Glentunnel.<br />

Concern has been raised<br />

Whitecliffs is losing its<br />

identity and people could get<br />

confused over the township’s<br />

official address.<br />

The issue was brought to<br />

the Whitecliffs Township<br />

Committee by resident Mike<br />

Ransome.<br />

Mr Ransome told <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

<strong>Times</strong> he has been pushing for<br />

the issue to be resolved for the<br />

past eight months and hasn’t<br />

got anywhere.<br />

“It irks me because I feel<br />

Whitecliffs is losing its identity.<br />

It would be like people<br />

living in West Melton being<br />

told they suddenly live in<br />

Christchurch,” he said.<br />

A Fire and Emergency New<br />

Zealand spokesman said it<br />

has received a request from<br />

the district council to add<br />

Whitecliffs to the New Zealand<br />

Localities Dataset.<br />

It is currently considering<br />

this request.<br />

The spokesman confirmed<br />

properties in Whitecliffs are<br />

presently classified as Glentunnel.<br />

The data set is maintained<br />

by FENZ to reduce the risk<br />

of confusion and, any consequent<br />

delays in dispatching<br />

crews to fires and other emergencies.<br />

A New Zealand Post<br />

spokeswoman said a creation<br />

of a new locality of Whitecliffs<br />

is being considered.<br />

She said NZ Post was unable<br />

to make any decisions<br />

for this change without<br />

agreement from a consortium<br />

made up of FENZ, territorial<br />

authorities and Land and<br />

Information New Zealand.<br />

Mr Ransome said he cannot<br />

understand what the fire<br />

service has to do with determining<br />

the official addresses<br />

in the first place.<br />

“I object to some pen pusher<br />

up there (Wellington) telling<br />

me where I live,” he said.<br />

Whitecliffs is currently<br />

serviced by a rural driver in<br />

Coalgate, and is included in<br />

the locality of Glentunnel<br />

meaning their address is<br />

street number and name followed<br />

by RD1 Coalgate.<br />

But Coalgate chief fire officer<br />

Phillip Shaw said when<br />

the firecrew is dispatched to<br />

the township, properties are<br />

classified as Whitecliffs.<br />

“We are not being confused.<br />

We don’t have any issues with<br />

it,” he said.<br />

On Google Maps, the townships’<br />

main road - Hartleys<br />

Rd leading up to the Whitecliffs<br />

Domain, falls under<br />

Glentunnel.<br />

Across the <strong>Selwyn</strong> River /<br />

Waikirikiri, Riversleigh Rd,<br />

Whitecliffs Rd and Flagpole<br />

Rd is named Malvern Hills.<br />

Township committee<br />

chairwoman Jodie Thompson<br />

said while she didn’t see the<br />

township losing its identity,<br />

it would be easier if the mail<br />

address was Whitecliffs.<br />

imagination, money, patience,<br />

hard work, ability to problemsolve<br />

and, most of all, courage<br />

and determination.<br />

Local real estate agents Joe<br />

and Tracey Brankin have<br />

proven they have plenty of these<br />

characteristics in restoring<br />

White’s Courtenay Hotel, one of<br />

the district’s oldest buildings.<br />

The old hotel has significant<br />

historical importance to the<br />

district in that it was the earliest<br />

centre of local government. The<br />

East Rakaia and North East<br />

Roads boards held their first ever<br />

meeting (and subsequent meetings)<br />

in the lounge of the hotel<br />

in July 1865. These boards later<br />

morphed into the Courtenay<br />

Roads Board, the Malvern County<br />

Council, and latter, the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

District Council. The building is<br />

also the sole remaining dwelling<br />

of a series of hotels and accommodation<br />

houses – such as<br />

the Halfway House Hotel near<br />

Courtenay, the Miner’s Arms at<br />

Halkett and the Clare Inch Hotel<br />

at Little Racecourse Hill – which<br />

had been established along the<br />

Old West Coast Rd and have<br />

long-since gone.<br />

Although it has mostly been<br />

used as a private residence, the<br />

building was a purpose-built<br />

hotel when erected by Charles<br />

White in 1864. White had<br />

previously established a smaller<br />

hotel on the river flat near the<br />

Courtenay punt to service those<br />

crossing the Waimakariri River.<br />

He subsequently built the larger<br />

nine-bedroom, wooden weatherboard<br />

hotel alongside what was<br />

then the main West Coast Rd<br />

to provide accommodation and<br />

meals for the increasing volume<br />

100%<br />

CapItal GaIn<br />

to the ResIDent<br />

of travellers passing through to<br />

the West Coast.<br />

The hotel provided services<br />

for the Cobb & Co horse-drawn<br />

coaches and passengers from<br />

1866 when the road over Arthur’s<br />

Pass was opened. Officially<br />

licensed as the Courtenay Hotel,<br />

the establishment was commonly<br />

known as White’s Hotel and it<br />

served as a staging station where<br />

the coaches changed horses. The<br />

stables at the rear of the hotel<br />

have long since gone.<br />

The hotel became an important<br />

centre for the community,<br />

where a post office and telephone<br />

exchange were eventually housed<br />

within the building and local<br />

meetings were regularly held in<br />

the two lounges and tap room<br />

(bar).<br />

When Charles White died in<br />

1869 his wife Mary Ann and<br />

son, George, kept the business<br />

going, but the days of the hotel<br />

were numbered. The new railway<br />

from Rolleston to Kirwee was<br />

completed in 1871, which took<br />

most of the traffic away from the<br />

Old West Coast Rd. The growth<br />

of Kirwee led to the demise of<br />

businesses in Courtenay, which<br />

included the hotel, along with a<br />

store, a blacksmith, an Orange<br />

Lodge Hall and a library. About<br />

this time, the hotel license was<br />

transferred to the Kirwee Hotel,<br />

with White’s then becoming<br />

a private residence. However,<br />

the Post Office was retained in<br />

the building until 1924, when it<br />

closed.<br />

In 1902, the property was<br />

purchased by Jack Bedford and<br />

remained in the family until<br />

1994. By that time the building<br />

had been unoccupied since 1963<br />

and was derelict. An internal<br />

chimney and one of the two sets<br />

of stairs had collapsed, with the<br />

weather and vandals adding to<br />

the general deterioration of the<br />

building.<br />

As early as 1970, a local<br />

newspaper reported the likely<br />

destruction of the historically<br />

significant building, as the owner<br />

and the Historical Places Trust<br />

were not in financial positions to<br />

restore the property. At this time<br />

prospective buyers were put off<br />

by restrictive planning by-laws,<br />

with the old Town and Country<br />

Planning Act discouraging any<br />

potential restoration.<br />

However, in 1993 resource<br />

consent to subdivide the land<br />

and restore the building was<br />

gained, resulting in the property<br />

being purchased by John and<br />

Diane Sugrue. Their initial vision<br />

$1,000 FullY<br />

ReFunDable<br />

DeposIt<br />

was to restore the building to<br />

its original state and operate a<br />

country bar and restaurant. Over<br />

12 months, the couple cleared<br />

the site of overgrown vegetation,<br />

guttered the building interior<br />

and exterior and prepared it for<br />

restoration.<br />

By 1995, the building was<br />

weather-proof and to a lock-up<br />

stage. However, it was not until<br />

2007 that the interior framing,<br />

wiring and water system installation<br />

was completed. At this<br />

stage, the exterior restoration<br />

had been done, and in 2<strong>01</strong>2 their<br />

efforts were recognised when<br />

they won the Heritage Restoration<br />

category of the Canterbury<br />

Heritage Awards.<br />

The second stage of the restoration<br />

came about when Joe and<br />

Tracey Brankin purchased the<br />

building in September 2<strong>01</strong>4. Joe<br />

had been asked to market the<br />

property, but ended up buying<br />

it himself for a family home. Joe<br />

had grown up in the area and<br />

became passionate about the potential<br />

in the restoration project.<br />

At this time, the interior only<br />

consisted of a concrete floor and<br />

some structural internal walls.<br />

After discussions with<br />

Heritage New Zealand and the<br />

district council, the Brankins<br />

quickly set about sympathetically<br />

renovating the old hotel into<br />

a comfortable modern home,<br />

based on the original footprint<br />

and incorporating existing features,<br />

such as a hidden staircase<br />

and the original second storey<br />

floor and layout. A new main<br />

staircase was built and several<br />

internal walls were either moved<br />

or taken out. Replacement Kauri<br />

doors were installed and the<br />

décor now includes lamp shades<br />

and an old 1920s telephone that<br />

are not only in keeping with<br />

the character of the building,<br />

but also are a reminder of its<br />

past use. By December 2<strong>01</strong>4, the<br />

couple were able to move into the<br />

old hotel, being the first residents<br />

since 1963.<br />

Joe and Tracey spent the<br />

following year completing the<br />

landscaping of the grounds in<br />

character with the history of<br />

the property, which includes<br />

adornments such as wine barrels<br />

and a horse-drawn cart and gig –<br />

both more than 100-years-old.<br />

Through their combined<br />

efforts, the Brankins and<br />

Sugrues have not only saved a<br />

historic building from imminent<br />

destruction, but have also<br />

preserved for future generations<br />

an increasingly rare physical<br />

reminder of the district’s colonial<br />

past.<br />

SELWYN TIMES<br />

UNIQUE: Elite Meats owner Corey Winder parks up every<br />

Thursday in Rolleston. ​<br />

A MOBILE butcher has taken off<br />

in Rolleston.<br />

Elite Meats owner Corey<br />

Winder has expanded his business<br />

by setting up a moveable<br />

butchery from a small truck.<br />

Mr Winder, who has been a<br />

butcher since he was 19-yearsold,<br />

said the reaction has been<br />

“amazing.”<br />

“People have just been blown<br />

away by it,” he said.<br />

The idea for the mobile<br />

butchery came from residents’<br />

requests to have a shop in other<br />

places, such as Rolleston and<br />

West Melton.<br />

“I thought, well, it’s not that<br />

easy to open a butcher shop, so<br />

I’ll see if I can get a mobile one<br />

going,” Mr Winder said.<br />

He is selling the same products<br />

found in the Elite Meats store in<br />

Bush Inn.<br />

“If we haven’t got it on the<br />

truck, then we take orders and<br />

we take the order out of whatever<br />

they want the following<br />

week,” Mr Winder said.<br />

In March, Mr Winder was<br />

named in the all star team at the<br />

World Butchers’ Challenge in<br />

Northern Ireland. His team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, finished<br />

second in the competition.<br />

The mobile butcher will<br />

be open outside the South<br />

Point complex in Faringdon,<br />

Rolleston, on Thursdays, from<br />

2-6.30pm, and 9am-5.30pm<br />

outside Vegeland on Marshland<br />

Rd on weekends.<br />

Readers respond to the<br />

potential changes being<br />

made to the busy Rolleston<br />

poles can move unexpectedly.<br />

Jail for dog park crash driver<br />

Convicted<br />

killer gets<br />

15 months<br />

A CONVICTED killer who<br />

crashed through the Rolleston<br />

dog park fence after a high speed<br />

chase has been jailed for 15<br />

months.<br />

John Oliver Jamieson, 31, was<br />

sentenced on Thursday in the<br />

Christchurch District Court on<br />

driving charges and unlawful<br />

possession of a .22 rifle and<br />

ammunition found in the car at<br />

the end of the June 2 incident.<br />

Jamieson was jailed in 2009<br />

for nine years for manslaughter<br />

for the death of Wayne Kerry<br />

Bray, who was kicked to death in<br />

a group street assault in Timaru<br />

the previous year.<br />

He was also found guilty last<br />

year of threatening to chop<br />

his wife’s head off during an<br />

argument over the telephone.<br />

On Thursday, his lawyer Paul<br />

Johnson said Jamieson had<br />

written an “insightful” letter<br />

of apology and accepted that<br />

methamphetamine was the<br />

issue for his rehabilitation. He<br />

had already contacted Odyssey<br />

House about the possibility of a<br />

rehabilitation placement there.<br />

But Judge Brian Callaghan said<br />

the Court of Appeal had said<br />

that the courts should impose<br />

sentences that showed society’s<br />

condemnation on those who had<br />

firearms unlawfully.<br />

Judge Callaghan said Jamieson<br />

had been gravely affected by<br />

PHOTO: BARRY CLARKE<br />

the death of his mother last<br />

year and his behaviour had<br />

changed when he started using<br />

methamphetamine again.<br />

The court heard on June<br />

2 Jamieson drove on State<br />

Highway 1 towards Burnham, at<br />

180km/h while overtaking other<br />

cars in a passing lane.<br />

Police followed him with<br />

their sirens and lights on, but<br />

IMPACT: John<br />

Oliver Jamieson<br />

(above) has<br />

been sentenced<br />

to 15 months<br />

jail following<br />

his crash into a<br />

Rolleston dog<br />

park fence on<br />

June 2.<br />

he crossed the double yellow<br />

lines into the south-bound lane<br />

to overtake other north-bound<br />

cars.<br />

He remained on the wrong<br />

side of the road until the end of<br />

the passing lane, still travelling at<br />

high speed.<br />

He turned too fast into Tennyson<br />

St, Rolleston, and went off<br />

the road, across the grass area<br />

of the BP service station, and<br />

narrowly missed the KFC sign,<br />

before going back on the road.<br />

At the junction with Lowes<br />

Rd he went onto the wrong<br />

side of the road again, around a<br />

roundabout the wrong way, hit<br />

another car causing minor<br />

damage, before leaving the road<br />

and crashing into a dog park<br />

fence.<br />

Police found a firearm in<br />

his car and charged him with<br />

driving dangerously, driving<br />

while disqualified, failing to stop<br />

for police, driving recklessly,<br />

driving carelessly, and unlawful<br />

possession of a pistol – a sawn off<br />

.22 rifle.<br />

Jamieson pleaded guilty on<br />

July 9 to charges of driving<br />

dangerously, driving while<br />

disqualified, failing to stop<br />

for police, driving recklessly,<br />

driving carelessly, and unlawful<br />

possession of the rifle.<br />

Judge Callaghan also imposed<br />

18 months’ disqualification from<br />

driving on top of his current<br />

term – he won’t get his licence<br />

back until May 2020.<br />

The judge also ordered him<br />

to pay $1035 reparations to the<br />

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

the damage he did to the dog<br />

park.<br />

Will Springston Primary retain the Kea Trophy?<br />

As Schools return to their hard work – Lincoln<br />

Envirotown are hoping that many of them will<br />

find some time to “Focus For Future” and<br />

complete their productions to The <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Environmental Film Competition.<br />

Last year it was won by a group of Springston<br />

Primary students whose excellent puppet<br />

eels showed us the threats they face in our<br />

waterways.<br />

The competition is open to all and we look<br />

forward to entries from individuals, high<br />

school groups, clubs and others as we have<br />

seen in previous years.<br />

It is an enjoyable way of doing one’s bit for<br />

the Environment.<br />

Any combination of animation, video or slides<br />

can be used to deliver your environmental<br />

message. Films which have been made for<br />

other purposes can be entered providing<br />

they satisfy the criteria of the competition.<br />

Entries close on <strong>August</strong> 31st and the Awards<br />

will be presented at an “Oscar like” ceremony<br />

on Friday September 14th. All the films will be<br />

shown and there are different category prizes<br />

with the Kea Trophy as the ultimate goal.<br />

We’re also seeking interest from cultural and ethnic art and<br />

craft stalls as well as groups or agencies providing services and<br />

activities for <strong>Selwyn</strong> residents and have something to offer our<br />

newcomers and migrants.<br />

One of the best parts of CultureFest is the amazing range of food<br />

ON THE<br />

ROADS<br />

On the roads this week<br />

Unsealed maintenance metalling is being undertaken on Brookside Road,<br />

Thomsons Road and Hoskyns Road (SH73 to Station Road). Unsealed repairs are<br />

being carried out on Midhurst Road, Coaltrack Road and Scotts Road. Please drive<br />

with care through all sites.<br />

Footpath repair work is being undertaken in Kirwee with some sections of the<br />

footpath closed.<br />

Maintenance grading will be taking place in the Hororata, Glenroy, Southbridge, Doyleston, Greendale<br />

and Coalgate areas.<br />

Drivers on Wards Road will be asked to stop on request, as stabilised seal repairs are completed on<br />

Wednesday and Thursday.<br />

The new community centre – which has recently had the roof<br />

and façades installed – is expected to be completed in October<br />

this year.<br />

By the time of completion construction would have taken 13<br />

months, with it starting in September 2<strong>01</strong>7.<br />

The new community centre will have a meeting space, indoor sport<br />

facilities, a scout hall, Plunket room, a play centre as well as the<br />

ability to adapt to other community activities.<br />

The $5.8 facility replaces the old community hall which had<br />

sustained earthquake damage. The new community centre is<br />

much larger, and is better designed to cope with the needs of a<br />

growing population.<br />

Carpet beetles are common<br />

Mike Bowie is an ecologist<br />

who specialises in<br />

entomology (insects and<br />

other invertebrates). Each<br />

week he introduces a<br />

new species found in his<br />

backyard at Lincoln. His<br />

TWO WEEKS ago I found a<br />

small larva in the empty bath,<br />

which I carefully brushed into a<br />

specimen tube to view under the<br />

microscope.<br />

Closer inspection revealed that<br />

the 6mm larva was an australian<br />

carpet beetle, Anthrenocerus<br />

australis, one of two common<br />

carpet beetle species found in<br />

New Zealand.<br />

The larvae are slow-moving,<br />

bristly, brown and white striped<br />

pests, as opposed to the smaller<br />

SLOW-MOVING: The australian carpet beetle larvae feed on<br />

carpets, woollen fabrics, fur, feathers and even dead insects in<br />

museums.<br />

2-3mm, harmless, oval-shaped<br />

adults.<br />

The attractively patterned<br />

adults are pollen feeders,<br />

commonly seen on parsley<br />

flowers, whereas the destructive<br />

larvae feed on carpets, woollen<br />

fabrics, fur, feathers and even<br />

dead insects in museums.<br />

Their cast exoskeletons and<br />

frass, insect poo, can be a<br />

clue you have an infestation,<br />

which can be dealt with by<br />

freezing, steam cleaning, boric<br />

acid or synthetic pyrethroid<br />

insecticides, depending on what<br />

is infested.<br />

Carpet beetles take between<br />

nine to 12 months to complete a<br />

generation, depending on local<br />

temperatures.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> United striker nets<br />

29 goals for school side<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

SELWYN UNITED striker<br />

Declan Hickford’s right boot is<br />

showing no signs of failing him.<br />

The 17-year-old is having a<br />

breakthrough year, playing in<br />

his debut Mainland Premier<br />

League season with <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

United on Saturdays and scoring<br />

goals for the St Andrew’s College<br />

first XI during the week.<br />

Hickford is making the most<br />

of his opportunities in the MPL<br />

– starting most weeks for <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

United and scoring five goals so<br />

far this season.<br />

He has been dominant for his<br />

school team, scoring 29 goals<br />

in eight games in the Connetics<br />

first XI secondary school<br />

competition, including seven last<br />

week in a 9-2 win over Lincoln<br />

High School that lifted his team<br />

to third.<br />

He has scored 90 goals for the<br />

first XI since debuting four years<br />

ago. The tally is believed to be<br />

a school record and with four<br />

games to go in the competition,<br />

plus a national secondary<br />

schools campaign still to come,<br />

Hickford is likely to hit triple<br />

figures at some point.<br />

“There are times when I think<br />

to myself that the great run I’ve<br />

had must come to an end at<br />

some point, but that’s my job –<br />

to score goals,” he said.<br />

TOP FORM: <strong>Selwyn</strong> United striker Declan Hickford has been<br />

The Westmorland resident<br />

said he is loving the challenge of<br />

matching up against the men.<br />

“The physicality is clearly<br />

something that takes time to<br />

adjust to, but also matching that<br />

with the speed of play,” he said.<br />

SPORTS<br />

Hickford said he is also focused<br />

on trying to earn a United<br />

States scholarship. “To get a<br />

quality education while testing<br />

my skills against a high standard<br />

of play would be something I’d<br />

like to do,” he said.<br />

Lincoln sharp-shooter<br />

targets national champs<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

LINCOLN HIGH School trap<br />

shooter Scott Daly in on track to<br />

represent the South Island after<br />

dominating the North Island<br />

championships in Hamilton.<br />

The 16-year-old from<br />

Springston won the High Gun<br />

Award for best overall shooter<br />

after claiming the secondary<br />

school skeet and down the line<br />

titles.<br />

The Lincoln High team<br />

also retained the team skeet<br />

title with Scott, Logan Howe,<br />

Michael Caines and Ethan<br />

Kempthorne victorious.<br />

Scott said his win in the skeet<br />

was a big surprise. “It was a<br />

shock to me because I basically<br />

only do the skeet to fill in time<br />

waiting for down the line.”<br />

Scott is currently ranked<br />

high enough to make the<br />

South Island team to face the<br />

North Island at the national<br />

championships later this year.<br />

The avid hunter and former<br />

motocross rider took up the<br />

sport three years ago after seeing<br />

it mentioned in the Lincoln<br />

High School notices.<br />

“I realised I really enjoyed it<br />

and now it takes up the majority<br />

of my spare time,” he said.<br />

“I don’t think about<br />

achievements or trophies, I just<br />

want to shoot well and do my<br />

best.”<br />

Scott said the sport was<br />

mostly mental but weather<br />

factors like the wind can play a<br />

part as well.<br />

“You have to keep your eye on<br />

the targets and factor in what<br />

the conditions might do but<br />

that’s half the fun.”

Lincoln A left it late to record<br />

a much needed 52-49 win over<br />

newly-promoted Rolleston in<br />

the <strong>Selwyn</strong> premier netball<br />

competition at the Lincoln Event<br />

Centre on Saturday.<br />

Rolleston came into the game<br />

full of confidence after beating<br />

Broadfield A 55-54 in their first<br />

run out since winning promotion<br />

to the top grade for round<br />

three of the season.<br />

Lincoln A were desperate to<br />

get their title aspirations back<br />

on track after a 55-46 loss to<br />

Greenpark B.<br />

Lincoln A managed to do it<br />

but had to produce a fourthquarter<br />

comeback after trailing<br />

by two goals heading into the<br />

final 15min.<br />

Coach Vanessa Robinson said<br />

her team had more than enough<br />

ball to put the match beyond<br />

doubt earlier than they did.<br />

“We must have won 15<br />

turnovers easily and then just<br />

handed them straight back,” she<br />

said. “It was very frustrating.”<br />

Robinson praised Rolleston’s<br />

“back to basics approach” and<br />

said her team could learn a lesson<br />

from the approach.<br />

“We’ve been dominant for a<br />

few years and that’s meant that<br />

we’ve been able to play with flair<br />

and haven’t had to rely on the<br />

basics,” she said. “You’ve got to<br />

give Rolleston a tremendous<br />

amount of credit for their approach<br />

and they’re having success<br />

with it.”<br />

After two weeks of the final<br />

round, all six teams are split by<br />

just one competition point.<br />

Greenpark A proved too<br />

strong winning 75-41 against<br />

Wednesday <strong>August</strong> 1 2<strong>01</strong>8 21<br />

Lincoln Combined<br />

Proud supporters of<br />

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

face must win game against Nelson<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

A WIN on Saturday against Nelson<br />

College is a must for Lincoln<br />

Combined if they want to make the<br />

UC Championship top four for the<br />

first time.<br />

Lincoln Combined were their<br />

own worst enemy during a 24-10<br />

loss to St Bede’s College on Saturday.<br />

The result left Lincoln clinging to<br />

a semi-final spot with away games<br />

to Nelson College and Christchurch<br />

Boys’ High School to round<br />

out their season.<br />

Realistically, they’ll have to win<br />

one of those fixtures to have any<br />

chance of making the top four for<br />

the first time.<br />

Coach Mike Wilson said his<br />

team struggled to impose themselves<br />

on the game in the first half<br />

and it cost them. “We were soft in<br />

the beginning to be honest. We<br />

fell off tackles and made too many<br />

errors,” Wilson said. “We were<br />

playing into a breeze and I felt like<br />

all the 50-50 bounces were going<br />

their way, but we certainly didn’t<br />

help ourselves,” he said.<br />

Lincoln Combined played the<br />

game without their captain and<br />

midfield general Wil Gualter after<br />

he was knocked out during the<br />

Crusaders Knights training camp a<br />

fortnight ago.<br />

“We missed him as any team<br />

would miss their only player who<br />

plays at (the Knights) level but most<br />

importantly we missed his voice<br />

and leadership,” Wilson said.<br />

He said Gualter was not guaranteed<br />

to return this week for the<br />

must win game against Nelson<br />

College.<br />

Against St Bede’s, Lincoln<br />

Combined trailed 19-3 at halftime<br />

and while a try to halfback Robert<br />

Sporke gave them a brief hope of<br />

getting a losers bonus point for<br />

finishing within seven points, a<br />

St Bede’s intercept try killed off<br />

that hope. Nelson College lost the<br />

Moascar Cup to CBHS on Saturday<br />

and will no doubt be eager to take<br />

out their frustration on Lincoln<br />

Combined in Nelson.<br />

Results: Rangiora HS 47,<br />

Waimea Combined 20; Christ’s<br />

College 38, Marlborough Boys<br />

15; Christchurch Boys 22, Nelson<br />

College 12; St Thomas 51, Mid<br />

Springston<br />

sneak into<br />

semi-final<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

SPRINGSTON beat Southbridge<br />

22-12 away from home and<br />

scored a four-try bonus point on<br />

Saturday to sneak into the semifinals<br />

of the Ellesmere senior<br />

rugby competition.<br />

The result saw Springston go to<br />

fourth spot by one competition<br />

point, with both Southbridge<br />

and Burnham Dunsandel Irwell,<br />

who beat Rolleston 53-20, tied<br />

on 27 points in fifth and sixth<br />

respectively.<br />

Springston scored four unanswered<br />

tries to lead 22-0 before<br />

Southbridge found their feet midway<br />

through the second half.<br />

Two tries to Springston winger<br />

Josh Young proved vital in the<br />

outcome.<br />

Top-of-the-table Waihora<br />

will be waiting for them. They<br />

took the Murray Cooper Shield<br />

off Darfield 12-0 on Saturday<br />

and are looking to add to their<br />

trophy cabinet after they won the<br />

combined country competition<br />

earlier in the season.<br />

Waihora scored all of their<br />

points in the first half through<br />

tries to Joel Harden and Connor<br />

MacButler and a conversion to<br />

Harry Kirk proved enough in<br />

spite of a second half arm wrestle.<br />

It was a double blow for<br />

Darfield who will now travel to<br />

Prebbleton after they grabbed<br />

second with a hard-fought 32-25<br />

win over Lincoln.<br />

Prebbleton’s Mitch Laughton<br />

scored 17 points in the win. The<br />

result dashed Lincoln’s slim topfour<br />

chances.<br />

West Melton ensured Hornby<br />

would collect the wooden spoon<br />

after they triumphed over the<br />

winless cellar-dwellers 31-10.<br />

Hawkins Trophy goes<br />

to Lincoln University<br />

• By Jim Doyle<br />

WHAT IS it about Lincoln<br />

University and New Brighton?<br />

The Lincoln University<br />

Rams have laid 14 tries on<br />

the seasiders in two previous<br />

contests.<br />

They managed only two on<br />

Sunday but a 26-7 win in a<br />

grand-final of the Hawkins<br />

Trophy at Rugby Park is<br />

convincing, especially since<br />

Brighton’s points came in the<br />

last seconds.<br />

Lincoln head coach Bevan<br />

Sisson had a compelling take on<br />

it. “Brighton are really physical<br />

and like to feed off mistakes. So<br />

you just don’t give them the ball<br />

and there’s no plan B for them,”<br />

he said.<br />

Sisson said key areas were the<br />

back of Brighton’s scrum and<br />

in midfield. However, the Rams<br />

didn’t punish the Brighton<br />

scrum quite as much as in<br />

previous games.<br />

They kept Aaron McCoy<br />

bottled up and did the<br />

same to Brighton’s Scotland<br />

international, No 12 Phil<br />

Burleigh.<br />

“Keep them under pressure<br />

and they don’t have a lot of<br />

other options. You could say we<br />

strangled them out of it.”<br />

Sisson was surprised that<br />

WINNERS: Lincoln University celebrate with the Hawkins<br />

Trophy after a 26-7 win over New Brighton at Rugby Park on<br />

Sunday.<br />

when Brighton won the toss<br />

they gave first use of the wind to<br />

the Rams.<br />

“We’d have taken the wind.<br />

It did die in the second half,<br />

although we still found it hard<br />

to get out of our area in that<br />

time. I said it was a 20-point<br />

wind and we achieved that,”<br />

said Sisson.<br />

He agreed with Ben Morris’s<br />

after-match comment about<br />

hitting Brighton in the first<br />

20min. And they did that,<br />

notching their two tries within<br />

16min. “The thing was, don’t let<br />

the crowd into it,’’ said Sisson.<br />

Gold-clad Brighton<br />

supporters were there in droves<br />

as usual if the seasiders are<br />

in a final. They managed to<br />

stay merry in spite of the tide<br />

running against them until the<br />

death.<br />

Sisson had special praise for<br />

three young players – Connor<br />

Gordon, Connor Garden-<br />

Bachop and Cullen Grace.<br />

“They’ll be really dangerous<br />

with more experience, “ he said.<br />

Scorecard: Lincoln University<br />

26 (Connor Garden-Bachop,<br />

Mitch Dunshea tries; Brett<br />

Cameron 2 conv, 4 pen) beat<br />

New Brighton 7 (Jordan French<br />

try; Stefan Moir conv). HT:<br />

20-0.

Minister shares in celebration<br />

of good farming practice<br />

Minister of Agriculture, Hon Damien<br />

O’Connor was in Canterbury last Tuesday,<br />

where he met Environment Canterbury<br />

representatives and farming leaders to<br />

celebrate good farming practice.<br />

Minister O’Connor said the Government<br />

had laid down clear bottom lines on water<br />

quality and welcomed the increased<br />

awareness and huge amount of mitigation<br />

taking place.<br />

“Farming in tune with the environment<br />

shows consumers that their food is produced<br />

by people who care and forms part of the<br />

social licence that allows landowners to<br />

operate,” the Minister said.<br />

Environment Canterbury councillor Tom<br />

Lambie said the Good Management Practice<br />

(GMP) “journey” started in Canterbury<br />

some years ago, and was marketed at<br />

national level by the launch in June of the<br />

Good Farming Practice Action Plan for<br />

Water Quality.<br />

“Now is a good time to take stock and<br />

recognise just how far we’ve come,” Mr<br />

Lambie said.<br />

“It is four years since Industry Agreed<br />

Good Management Practices Relating<br />

to Water Quality were introduced by the<br />

primary sectors in Canterbury with a view<br />

to national adoption.<br />

The Canterbury journey was illustrated<br />

by a visit to an inter-generational dairy farm<br />

near Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere where<br />

innovation and sustainable management<br />

have led to an impressive value-added story,<br />

and a series of presentations.<br />

Mr Lambie, who chaired the original<br />

group that guided the work informing the<br />

Good Management Practices each sector<br />

developed, said all the key elements of<br />

the journey were on show – continuous<br />

improvement, targeted rules and smarter<br />

tools.<br />

“Collaboration has been key to our<br />

success at every stage,” Mr Lambie said.<br />

“For example, practices introduced by the<br />

primary sectors were a prime example of<br />

collaboration to help address our challenging<br />

water quality issues. The work of our water<br />

zone committees around the region since<br />

the Canterbury Water Management Strategy<br />

started in 2<strong>01</strong>0 is another.”<br />

Good management practice should be the<br />

minimum standard for the primary sector,<br />

Mr Lambie said.<br />

“It is what every farmer would reasonably<br />

expect from their peers. They are now<br />

identifying the environmental risks and<br />

acting to manage them.<br />

“Farm environment plans (FEPs) are<br />

central to this. We already have more than<br />

3000 FEPs throughout the region, a rigorous<br />

auditing regime providing assurance, and<br />

land use consents being required of farmers<br />

in high-risk areas. Nitrogen loss limits are<br />

set in consents.<br />

“We welcome every opportunity to<br />

showcase all the good work that is happening<br />

in Canterbury, and today’s activities have<br />

given us that chance in a very practical way,”<br />

Feds support emission reduction but say<br />

road map needed<br />

Moves to significantly reduce emissions<br />

and meet Paris Agreement commitments<br />

are supported by Federated Farmers, but<br />

this should not be at the expense of New<br />

Zealanders’ economic and social wellbeing,<br />

the organisation says.<br />

“We need that clear<br />

road map to a low net<br />

emissions economy<br />

and a long-term plan<br />

of action that endures<br />

political cycles. But<br />

New Zealand should<br />

not lock itself into an<br />

inflexible approach<br />

that disadvantages<br />

us more than other<br />

nations,” Feds climate<br />

Andrew Hoggard change spokesperson<br />

Andrew Hoggard said.<br />

“In the decades to 2050 we’ll also be<br />

grappling with the major cost implications<br />

of an ageing population. We must have<br />

regard for the impact various ‘net zero’<br />

options would have on emissions prices and<br />

on GDP, jobs and incomes.”<br />

In its submission on the Zero Carbon Bill,<br />

Federated Famers said the best option of the<br />

three put forward in the Our Climate Your<br />

Say discussion paper was the “two baskets”<br />

approach that focused on reductions in longlived<br />

greenhouse gas emissions (carbon<br />

dioxide and nitrous oxide) while stabilising<br />

short-lived emissions (methane).<br />

“New Zealand’s primary industries earned<br />

64 per cent of our total merchandise export<br />

income in 2<strong>01</strong>7/18, not to mention the<br />

several billion dollars of food produced for<br />

domestic consumption,” Mr Hoggard said.<br />

“We have an unsubsidised but highly<br />

efficient agricultural sector, which is<br />

markedly exposed to competition from<br />

moderately to highly subsidised producers<br />

in other nations.<br />

“Successive governments have worked<br />

hard to remove barriers to trade. It would be<br />

counterproductive for future governments<br />

to impose costs on our producers that would<br />

undermine those trade gains.<br />

“The wrong policies could reduce our<br />

emissions-efficient food production, a gap<br />

that will be filled by much less emissionsefficient<br />

producers overseas. We lose<br />

economically, and so does the planet in terms<br />

of global warming and climate change.”<br />

The Federation’s submission said<br />

regardless of which 2050 target is adopted,<br />

agricultural biological emissions should<br />

not come under the ETS until cost-effective<br />

mitigations are available to farmers and<br />

our international competitors make similar<br />

moves.<br />

It also noted the great potential for forest<br />

and other woody vegetation to sequest<br />

carbon, including establishment of new<br />

commercial forests, farm woodlots, shelter<br />

belts, slope stability, erosion control planting<br />

and riparian planting.<br />

“But there’s a warning with this,” Mr<br />

Hoggard said.<br />

Diesel Blower Heaters<br />

”We’re very concerned about the potential<br />

for climate change policy to drive largescale<br />

land use change from sheep and<br />

beef farming to forestry, when it’s farming<br />

that underpins the social, economic and<br />

employment viability of rural communities.”<br />

The notion that foresters will want to plant<br />

on marginal land was “highly questionable”<br />

Home heating –<br />

electricity, gas or wood?<br />

How you heat your home depends on a<br />

number of factors. Figuring out the best<br />

way to heat your home continues to be a<br />

matter for debate.<br />

Several things are undisputed. A<br />

warm, dry home is essential for<br />

comfort and good health, good<br />

insulation dramatically increases<br />

the efficiency of any heating<br />

system and ventilation is an<br />

important consideration.<br />

Most homes are<br />

heated by electricity,<br />

gas, or wood. In<br />

New Zealand,<br />

heating accounts<br />

for approximately<br />

30 percent of a<br />

home’s annual energy<br />

consumption. There are many<br />

things you can do to reduce<br />

consumption and cost.<br />

The World Health Organisation<br />

recommends a temperature of 18 deg C<br />

for indoor living areas, and slightly less for<br />

bedrooms. It recommends slightly higher<br />

temperatures for vulnerable people – the<br />

elderly and small children. Studies have<br />

shown that indoor temperatures below 12<br />

degrees can disrupt sleep.<br />

Among all these considerations, how<br />

you heat your home is a matter of personal<br />

choice, with many options available.<br />

Heat pumps are generally the most<br />

common and cost-effective form of home<br />

heating in New Zealand. Used properly,<br />

they heat quickly and are convenient.<br />

However, you need to have the right sized<br />

unit for the area and they don’t work when<br />

electricity is not available. They tend to be<br />

room-specific but ducted heat pumps are<br />

becoming more popular and are costeffective,<br />

especially in new builds, but can<br />

also be installed into established homes.<br />

Modern wood burners may be the<br />

closest you can get to an open-fire feel, but<br />

are much more efficient. Wood is generally<br />

a renewable fuel, and if you have a cheap<br />

or free supply, a wood burner may be<br />

the least expensive heating option. They<br />

heat large areas and are not dependent<br />

on electricity but there is the chopping<br />

and stacking to be done, flues need to be<br />

cleaned regularly and older models can<br />

contribute to air pollution and may violate<br />

strict air quality regulations – www.mfe.<br />

govt.nz has detailed information regarding<br />

this.<br />

Pellet fires are typically more efficient<br />

than wood burners but can have a smaller<br />

output. They require electricity but<br />

some have a battery backup and they are<br />

thermostatically controlled with timers.<br />

These must comply with regulations which<br />

are also detailed on the Ministry for the<br />

Environment website.<br />

Gas heating is common and convenient.<br />

Central heating systems can be zone<br />

controlled and provide warm air<br />

circulation. Flued gas heaters are best, as<br />

unflued and portable gas heaters produce<br />

lots of moisture and emit pollutants that<br />

can be unsafe. Flued gas heating systems<br />

can be installed in most homes. They are<br />

fast heating and are relatively inexpensive<br />

to run. However gas is not a renewable<br />

resource and prices can vary widely.<br />

The greatest source of energy is actually<br />

free. Harnessing the sun can dramatically<br />

reduce heating costs and is the most<br />

environmentally friendly way to heat your<br />

home. Passive heating combines insulation<br />

with good design, accomplished more<br />

effectively in new builds but also able to be<br />

incorporated into existing homes.<br />

Getting the sun’s warmth into your<br />

home is a function of the design; keeping<br />

it in is a function of the insulation. There<br />

is a wealth of information online as passive<br />

heating becomes normative in the design<br />

and building industry.<br />

Websites such as energywise.govt.<br />

nz and smarterhomes.org.nz have<br />

comprehensive information on and tips<br />

for, heating your home in the colder<br />

months.

Buying a lifestyle block<br />

5<br />

City life getting you down? Dreaming of<br />

living in the country, where you ‘commute’<br />

from the breakfast table to a barn or your<br />

home office? It might look like an easy life but<br />

buying a lifestyle property can be a complex<br />

business.<br />

While living in the country has much<br />

to recommend it, you need to do more<br />

preparation for buying a place there than<br />

buying a pair of gumboots and comparing<br />

the merits of ride-on mowers.<br />

“We recommend comprehensive due<br />

diligence when buying any kind of property,<br />

but rural ones come with a whole extra set of<br />

things to think about compared to buying a<br />

straightforward stand-alone home in town,”<br />

says Kevin Lampen-Smith, chief executive of<br />

the Real Estate Authority (REA).<br />

Lampen-Smith says that while it’s tempting<br />

to focus on the dream wish list for your<br />

bucolic bolt-hole, but you should also<br />

compile a list of issues to be aware of (and<br />

people who can help you learn about them).<br />

“If the property you like is being sold by a<br />

licensed real estate agent, remember that you<br />

can ask them anything you like about it,” he<br />

says.<br />

“Rural real estate agents have special skills<br />

in this area and they’ll be able to help you<br />

figure out what information you need to<br />

make a well-informed decision. It’s also a<br />

good idea to get your lawyer onboard early to<br />

check titles, consents and other information<br />

that you gather in the process.”<br />

It might feel like you’re getting away from<br />

it all when moving out of town, but rural<br />

developments can be subject to rules that<br />

restrict what you can do. Lampen-Smith<br />

recommends getting your lawyer to check if<br />

there are any covenants on the property that<br />

might have an impact on a future business<br />

you may run there, or any planned building<br />

projects. You don’t want to invest in an<br />

alpaca herd for your new dream property<br />

only to find that it’s not allowed to carry any<br />

livestock. Similarly, it would be tough to<br />

discover that your subdivision plans are not<br />

permitted by council rules.<br />

Be aware that there may be tax implications<br />

if you’re planning to use the property as a<br />

business, Lampen-Smith says.<br />

“In general, if it is currently being used for<br />

a business that is tax-registered – whether<br />

that’s selling organic eggs, grazing stock<br />

or running a B&B – then the seller will<br />

probably add GST to the price. This means<br />

you’ll pay an extra 15 per cent, unless you are<br />

also registered for GST. Ask your lawyer or<br />

accountant to check if the house or any other<br />

buildings on the property are GST-exempt.<br />

They will also be able to advise you on<br />

whether you need to be GST-registered.”<br />

A good place to start when trying to figure<br />

out what tax obligations might attach to your<br />

purchase of the property is Inland Revenue’s<br />

property tax decision tree (available at<br />

http://www.ird.govt.nz/property/propertyterms-and-tools/property-decision-tree/),<br />

but keep in mind that it is always best to<br />

seek professional advice before you make a<br />

decision.<br />

Rural properties (like all properties) can<br />

also have easements on the title that relate to<br />

access, water or power. Lampen-Smith says<br />

you should ask your lawyer to check the title<br />

and work out what the easements are, and<br />

how they will have an impact on your rights<br />

and responsibilities as an owner.<br />

“For example, if the title allows a neighbour<br />

access to a piece of their land through your<br />

property, do you have any right to limit the<br />

type and frequency of that access if you buy<br />

it?”<br />

Be aware too that there may be ‘unofficial’<br />

easements operating; the incumbent owners<br />

may have an informal arrangement with their<br />

neighbours, but this may not remain when<br />

the property passes into new ownership.<br />

Things that we take for granted when living<br />

in urban environments, like water, sewage<br />

and access, can require more involvement in<br />

rural areas. Check the water sources for the<br />

property – if it has its own bore, are there<br />

limits on the amount of water you can draw<br />

from it? What is the process for ensuring it is<br />

safe to drink? What happens to wastewater<br />

and sewage? Are you prepared for life with<br />

a septic tank? Will the current owner ensure<br />

the tank is empty as a condition of sale?<br />

When it comes to access, will you share<br />

a private road or right of way with other<br />

properties? What will be your responsibilities<br />

and potential costs for maintaining it? Don’t<br />

forget that your neighbours may be involved<br />

in unglamorous activities at ungodly hours –<br />

check the zoning rules for nearby properties<br />

if you’re worried about noise, smells or traffic.<br />

You might think it’s lovely to have stock<br />

grazing out the window, but are you ready for<br />

a milk tanker driving past every morning? Be<br />

aware that the LIM will not always alert you<br />

to any pending or current NZTA decisions<br />

regarding local highway linkages that often<br />

divert traffic away from urban centres in<br />

favour of immediate rural areas on the town<br />

boundary. Check with NZTA if you think<br />

your property could be affected by road<br />

changes.<br />

“Like all property purchases, buying a place<br />

in the country requires careful, objective<br />

consideration,” Lampen-Smith says.<br />

“There are lots of great things about living<br />

on the land, but it’s best to be realistic about<br />

it. You don’t want to be like the former townie<br />

I met a few weeks ago, who mournfully told<br />

me that their lifestyle block had become “a<br />

life sentence”. Do your homework and you’re<br />

far more likely to live happily ever after in<br />

rural bliss.”<br />

Your guide to all things Real Estate<br />

in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

Investing<br />

to rent –<br />

with pets<br />

Rental properties that allow pets are a<br />

niche market for landlords.<br />

Pet-friendly rental properties are hard<br />

to find, and yet according to a 2<strong>01</strong>1 New<br />

Zealand Companion Animal Council<br />

(NZCAC) survey, 68% of households own<br />

at least one pet.<br />

With the companion animal population,<br />

over 5 million, outranking the human<br />

population 4.8 million (2<strong>01</strong>8 Census), it is<br />

acceptable to assume that there are large<br />

numbers of people actively looking for<br />

rental homes where their pets can come<br />

too.<br />

Renting a home to a stranger is entrusting<br />

someone with a valuable asset so allowing<br />

a pet or two makes this a riskier option<br />

for the landlord. However, that does not<br />

mean a tenant with a pet will not be a good<br />

tenant.<br />

Landlords could potentially be missing<br />

out on high return rental opportunities as<br />

pet owners are often willing to pay more<br />

to keep their pets with them. Tenants with<br />

pets tend to stay longer and take better care<br />

of the property according to an overseas<br />

survey.<br />

Charging a higher rental and including<br />

a pet bond are ways to help protect the<br />

property and the rights of the landlord.<br />

Landlords have the right to ask for a pet<br />

bond to cover any future damage caused by<br />

the animals or other related costs if tenants,<br />

who have left the property, abandon their<br />

animals.<br />

However, according to the New Zealand<br />

Government website, there is a limit to the<br />

amount of overall bond that can be charged.<br />

A tenant cannot be charged more than the<br />

equivalent of four weeks rental in bond. If a<br />

pet bond is required, it should be included<br />

in this and cannot be in addition to the four<br />

weeks rent bond already charged.<br />

It is also essential for the landlord to<br />

include the names, breed and number of<br />

pets allowed to live on the property in the<br />

rental agreement, so there are no future<br />

misunderstandings.<br />

Charging a<br />

higher rental and<br />

including a pet<br />

bond are ways<br />

to help protect<br />

the property and<br />

the rights of the<br />

landlord.<br />

Ask for a pet portfolio<br />

A pet portfolio helps reassure the landlord that the tenant is a responsible owner.<br />

It should include information about the pet plus details about its care and daily<br />

habits.<br />

Things to include:<br />

• Photo of the pet.<br />

• Description, breed, age and sex.<br />

• Current vaccination certificates.<br />

• Desexing, microchipping and registration information.<br />

• Housing information, i.e. how the animal will be housed (outdoors – in kennel<br />

and run; indoors – housetrained, bedding, etc.).<br />

• Daily habits – how the pet spends its day, exercise regime, etc.<br />

• Training sessions attended, i.e. dog obedience school.<br />

• References relating to your pet from a previous landlord or vet.<br />

Marketing your property –<br />

what does it mean?<br />

Marketing a property is more than presentation and advertising.<br />

Conceptually, marketing is identifying<br />

what prospective buyers are looking for<br />

then providing this. For example, larger<br />

homes and sections may appeal more<br />

to families. Young couples starting out,<br />

generally have tight budgets leading<br />

them to smaller properties, while older<br />

people may be looking to downsize.<br />

Brand new has a particular appeal<br />

however there will always be a market for<br />

established homes. Having a picture in<br />

your mind of the type of buyer will help<br />

in determining the features to emphasise.<br />

If repairs and maintenance need to be<br />

carried out before putting the property<br />

on the market, seek the advice of a real<br />

estate agent. They can advise on what<br />

tasks are worth completing and what<br />

might be unnecessary expense.<br />

Installing a new kitchen or changing<br />

the carpet may lift the house but will<br />

the expense be recouped in the sale<br />

price? On the other hand, modernising<br />

an outdated kitchen or bathroom could<br />

make a huge difference to the look of<br />

the place. Avoid going overboard unless<br />

the capital value of properties in the area<br />

justifies this.<br />

Real estate agents are in contact with<br />

prospective buyers so aware of what they<br />

are looking for. Draw on their expertise<br />

and advice to help make the most of the<br />

selling opportunity.<br />

Establishing a relevant and fair price<br />

for a property is important. Most<br />

agents calculate this based on the price<br />

properties in the area have sold for, and<br />

what a particular property has to offer.<br />

A unique or exceptional property may<br />

justify a higher price, though run-down<br />

properties can gain more than they<br />

appear to merit. This might be due to the<br />

area or other factors that suggest a good<br />

investment.<br />

When promoting a property, mix it up<br />

and be creative so your property stands<br />

out from the rest. TradeMe is a must;<br />

checked by most people looking to buy.<br />

Present the features the property offers as<br />

benefits to potential buyers.<br />

Erect a sign outside the property.<br />

People stop and look at photographs and<br />

this might spark sufficient interest for<br />

them to visit an open home. Spending<br />

a fortune on massive advertising<br />

campaigns in every media might seem a<br />

way to attract potential buyers but may<br />

be an unnecessary expense without the<br />

return. A better philosophy could be a<br />

little often. This will depend on the value<br />

of the property, your budget and how<br />

best to reach target buyers.<br />

Buyer perception is also significant.<br />

For example, properties that sit for a<br />

while can become stale. Resting the<br />

property by taking it off the market for<br />

a short time, then relisting perhaps in<br />

spring or when sales in the area appear<br />

to lift a little, can make a difference.<br />

However, if a property does not sell<br />

immediately there is no need for panic or<br />

dropping the price. It may simply be that<br />

the right buyer has not yet come along. If<br />

the mix is right your property will sell.<br />
