Heritage

bid in the

way of

plans to

develop

Rolly Inn

• By Emily O’Connell

A BID to redevelop the Rolly

Inn site in Rolleston could be

stopped by plans to turn the

hotel into a heritage building.

Owner Russell Lilley is planning,

along with others, to pull

down the hotel and build a bar,

restaurant, new commercial

buildings and a service station

on the site.

But the district council may

have different plans for the Rolly

Inn.

Last Wednesday the district

plan committee endorsed a

preferred option report that

included a bid to add the hotel,

which was built in 1930, to the

heritage items list.

Mr Lilley told Selwyn

Times that he doesn’t want the

hotel to become a heritage item.

He said it was “typical of the

way the world seems to be going

today” where people make up

your mind for you.

He has called the proposal to

add the building to the heritage

list “absolutely ridiculous.”

A BIT of drama in the shire in recent days.

Armed police surrounded a house in

Rolleston on Monday morning (see page

3) and used a stun grenade to convince the

wanted subject he should surrender.

It worked. He obliged and was taken into custody without

further incident.

Wise man.

In the early hours of Friday morning an 18-year-old, more

than four times over the drink driving limit, smashed into a

power pole after a big session in Lincoln. She was unhurt.

Lucky girl.

And, on Saturday yours truly was left with 15 stitches in an

index finger after his ageing lab unexpectedly took off from the

loose and awkward angled grip I had on the lead.

Silly boy.

Drink driving teen to

face court after crashing into pole

• By Emily O’Connell

FROM LINCOLN to Linwood

with a brain sozzled with booze.

And now an 18-year-old

university student will face the

courts after crashing her car

into a power pole in the early

hours of Friday morning.

• By Emily O’Connell

A STUN grenade was used on

a Rolleston house during an

armed offenders squad raid on

Monday.

The dramatic operation in

Othello Drive saw a number of

neighbouring streets cordoned

off. Paramedics were on standby.

But the wanted man sought

by police was captured without

incident about 10.30am on

Monday.

Sergeant Phil Bayne said the

man had failed to appear in

court for breach of community

work.

He said the arrest took about

two and a half hours and the

property involved was occupied

by someone known to the man.

The teenager recorded a

breath alcohol reading of 898

mcg/L after she crashed and

struck the pole at the intersection

of Ellesmere Junction Rd

and Shands Rd at 12.15am.

She had been drinking in Lincoln

and was returning to her

home in Linwood, said Senior

Constable Andy Williamson.

Miraculously she was not

injured.

The legal limit is 250 mcg/l

for someone 20-years-old and

over. Because of her age, she

was not legally allowed to drink

and drive.

“Lucky she, or an innocent

member of the public, was not

killed,” Senior Constable Williamson

said.

She will appear in the

Christchurch District Court on

charges of careless use of a motor

vehicle and driving with excess

breath alcohol concentration in

the next couple of weeks.

ANOTHER DRIVER HITS COW

A cow was killed following

a collision with a vehicle on

Hororata Dunsandel Rd early on

Monday morning. Constable Herb

An arrow has been installed

at a set of traffic lights at the

drive through the intersection

each day. Sergeant Alex Pickover

is hopeful it will help reduce the

crashes and risk of serious injuries

at the intersection. Last month

Selwyn Times learned there had

been 17 incidents in which signal

poles had been damaged at the

intersection over the past 11 years.

Heritage bid may disrupt

plan to redevelop Rolly Inn

•From page 1

District councillor Craig

Watson is backing Mr Lilley

but his suggestion to keep the

hotel off the heritage list did not

receive enough support from

fellow councillors.

He said it would be “unfair”

and “almost embarrassing for

Rolleston” if the hotel

became a heritage item.

“It’s putting a lot of

limitations on a hotel that

I would argue most of

Rolleston would not call

a heritage building,” Cr

Watson said.

His advice to Mr Lilley

is to get it demolished in

the next two years while

there are no restrictions in place.

District councillor Jeff Bland

said the building is a “great old

pub” which has historical value.

However, he said the owner

would need to be on-board with

the proposal for it to work.

“I think if you’re going to put

a heritage order on something, it

needs to come with agreement of

the current land owner or owner

of the building,” he said.

The report detailing the proposed

changes is expected to go

out for initial public consultation

in the next month. The

consultation will then be

considered when creating

the draft District Plan. The

CHANGES: A petition has been started for a second, larger dog park in Rolleston

after a fence was installed in the Foster Park dog exercise area last week.

Fence at dog park prompts

users into starting petition

• By Emily O’Connell

MORE THAN 370 people

have signed a petition

for the district council to

create a second, larger dog

park in Rolleston.

This follows a

fence being built

in the Rolleston

dog park last week

so part of it can

be closed off to

the public while

the Selwyn Dog

Training Club is

taking sessions.

Concerns have

been raised over

the district council’s

new structure at the

Foster Park dog exercise

area on the corner of

Springston, Rolleston and

Goulds Rds on the Rolleston

Community Page on

Facebook.

“Where was the consultation

from the council?”

one person commented.

“Looks like they have

made a total mess of the

park. What an eyesore

now,” another person said.

In Brief

WELCOMING PLAN

Selwyn’s Welcoming Plan

was launched on Friday. It

outlines how the district

council will celebrate the

increasing population and

diversity, and what activities

it will deliver to ensure

Selwyn is even more

welcoming for newcomers

and migrants. The plan is

part of the two-year Welcoming

Communities pilot

programme which the

district council was chosen

to take part in along with

eight other councils in five

regions across the country.

John Reid

“Actually looks like a

pretty good rural fence to

me,” a person wrote.

District council major

projects property manager

John Reid said it does not

have a view on

the petition

and there are

no plans for another

dog park

in Rolleston.

“Any future

developments

will need to

go through Annual

or Long

Term Plan

processes,” he

In 10 years the district’s

population is expected to

grow to 79,000. This is a

significant increase from

the current population of

59,000.

FIRST AID COURSE

The Ladbrooks Community

Hall Committee is

sponsoring an accredited

first aid course on September

15 and 16. There are

free places available for

residents of the Ladbrooks

rating area. For more information

phone 322 4490

in the evenings or email

said.

Mr Reid said the fence is

a result of complaints from

people about training

sessions being difficult to

conduct when other dogs

are running through the

area.

“Public dog owners are

also finding it hard to supervise

their dogs without

interrupting dog training,”

he said.

The Selwyn Dog Training

Club uses the park on

Tuesdays, Wednesdays

and Thursdays from 6.30-

9pm, on Sundays from

10am-noon and on the

occasional weekend for

competitions.

There is no final cost for

the fence yet as it has just

been completed. However,

in July Mr Reid told Selwyn

Times it was expected

to cost about $5000-$7000.

The fence is a permanent

structure. However, it is

being described as “temporary”

because it will

have a number of large

gates that will be left open,

except when the club is

running a training session.

‘To Think’

‘A mark, a sign.’

‘Anything serving as a reminder – token of rememberance”

Little River Gallery shows for the second time a collaborative exhibition by Robin Slow (painting), Brian Flintoff

(carving) and Bob Bickerton (soundscape). This year they follow on in the tradition of visually forwarding

histories and stories to be reflected on and become immersed in.

Robin Slow an artist whose work is also held in private collections, galleries and marae throughout the country

has used paint to create traditional forms used in conjunction with natural forms. The method of producing the

work has a traditional background but there has been an evolving of techniques and materials. This series of

works takes some traditional tohu, be it in the form of the composition, the patterns created or the creatures. It

explores the past and present to produce another tohu and that is the sign towards the future.

For many years, Brian Flintoff has created taonga puoro (musical instruments) for players and musicians

throughout the country. Not only do these create unique sounds but he has carved into them the stories and

histories that are woven into their function. His works are held in many major galleries throughout the world as

well as collections and marae here in Aotearoa.

From the painted images, carvings and reference points each has used in their works, Bob Bickerton created a

CD to enhance aspects visually but aurally as well to form a piece to be contemplated on and be enriched by.

EVENTS REGULARY POSTED ON

At the heart of Lincoln

40 years of acting

Established in 1977,

Kirwee Players has

a long history of

providing shows

in Selwyn. Kirwee

resident Mable

Knight has been

involved with the

group for 40 years.

Emily O’Connell talks

to her about her love

for theatre

What made you join the

Kirwee Players?

My love of theatre, really.

I came from Hokitika

on the West Coast and

there wasn’t anything like

that. They had a Hokitika

society going then. I was

really busy, I was a primary

school teacher. So when

I came over here I went

to their second show and

I came home and said:

‘That’s it, that’s for me.’ I

really loved it. I’ve been

in most of the shows ever

since.

Why did you move from

Hokitika to Kirwee?

I was teaching and I

took up a teaching job in

Christchurch. I went from

Hokitika Primary School

to Oaklands School . . . I

got tired of driving into the

sun in the morning and

the sun coming back and I

went to Sheffield Primary

School and absolutely loved

the country school teaching.

How long did you teach

at Sheffield Primary

School for?

I think it was something

like 13 or 14 years.

Have you lived anywhere

other than Hokitika

and Kirwee?

I was born in Westport

and then went to training

college then after training

college, with marriage

and what-not, I lived in

Hokitika and taught in

CREATIVE: Former

primary school teacher

Mable Knight’s passion

for music goes back to

her childhood.

Hokitika. I taught pretty

well continuously for

nearly 30 years.

What did you learn

from teaching?

I learnt that children can

surprise you all the time.

Children are always wanting

to learn more and if

you can open up their eyes,

they’ll take it on for themselves.

I think the role of

the teacher is to give them

the tools and then they

have urge to go further.

What’s your favourite

thing about Kirwee?

We’ve been farmers you

see, so I still love the openair

space. It’s quite funny

after living on a farm you

come into a subdivision

where there’s houses and

neighbours and things

. . . I wouldn’t go anywhere

else other than Kirwee

because I think the people

of Kirwee, and Malvern in

particular, are really nice.

We’ve got all our friends

here and we just like the

lifestyle out here.

What type of farming

did you do?

My husband David was

SELWYN TIMES

a farmer when I married

him and at Courtenay,

mostly we raised dairy

heifers and sheep and had

some bulls.

How has Kirwee

changed since you’ve lived

there?

The Kirwee district itself

with subdivisions and that

has really grown but I love

living out in the country,

I could never go to the

city. I also sing with the

Christchurch City Chorus,

I’ve been there for 25 years

too and that’s in the city.

That’s the only reason I

really go into the city. And

that again is singing,

a capella, barber shop style

and I’ve been overseas

backwards and forwards

with the Sweet Adelines

International for a number

of years now.

Have you always been

into theatre and singing?

How did it start?

Well after church on a

Sunday night . . . we’d sit

around mum’s organ and

we’d sing. And I have a

twin sister and we used to

always love harmonising.

What’s your favourite

type of song to sing?

I love ballads. Ballads

that tell a story. Some of

today’s songs that Adele

sings, people like that, that

you can relate to the words,

that’s the kind of ballad I

like to sing.

What has made you stay

with the Kirwee Players?

I enjoy the people, the

group. They’ve worked

really hard over the years,

the Kirwee Players, to get

to where they are today. It’s

been a continual growing

journey for the Kirwee

Players, it really has. The

productions now are so

professional that I still

think they’re the envy of

some of the Christchurch

groups, I’m just saying

that, but I think they are.

Mable Knight

with theatre group

News

TALENT: Mable Knight says it’s her love for theatre which got her involved with the Kirwee

Players 40 years ago and the people

100%

CapItal GaIn

to the ResIDent

What has been the most

memorable show you’ve been a

part of and why?

Well I took the role of Bloody

Mary in South Pacific and then

I’ve directed shows too . . . it’s a

great role [playing Bloody Mary]

to do and I love the songs I had to

sing . . . I just love playing strong

character roles . . . But I’ve also

thoroughly enjoyed working

backstage and I’ve been on the

committee for a good number of

years.

How has the Kirwee Players

changed since you’ve been a part

of it?

I think we have continually

updated and upgraded our sound

and our lighting and all the technical

things we can do on stage.

We’re really improved those over

the years. I think we run more

professionally now.

How did you get into directing?

I used to write children’s

shows when I taught at Sheffield

Primary School and I’d put on

an annual production and I’d

involve the whole school. So I

would write the story line and

then I would put it on every year

and I used to love doing that with

the children at Sheffield Primary.

And then with Kirwee Players, I

was in the chorus and then I took

roles on and I really enjoyed it.

Then I was asked to direct one

year and I did and I thoroughly

enjoyed that experience too.

Where do you see the future

of the Kirwee Players?

My generation, we’re looking

for people to come in and fill our

slots. You know what I mean? We

can’t always be there. The aim of

the Kirwee Players is to get more

youth on the committee. We have

got quite a young committee now

which is really good for those of

us who are a lot older now and

see ourselves moving back off it

. . . we’re lucky because when we

audition for people to come in to

shows, we’re getting them from

the city, we’re getting them coming

out and we have our regulars

too but we’re always looking for

new blood.

HAVE YOUR SAY: The district council is calling for public

consultation on its current District Plan. ​

District Plan

consultation open

THE PUBLIC is being asked

to have their say on the current

District Plan.

The plan is essentially the district’s

rule book on how land can

be used and developed.

A review is being undertaken

by the district council to make

sure it’s still fit for purpose and

up to date with any relevant

changes which have happened

since the last plan was notified.

All councils are required to review

their plan every 10 years.

The district council recently

released draft changes to a range

of topics in the plan for public

feedback.

District council environmental

services manager Tim Harris

said it wants to ensure that the

new plan helps rural, business

and residential areas to thrive.

“At the same time we want to

make sure our district remains

uniquely Selwyn – protecting

the things that are important to

the character of the district, and

managing our natural and physical

resources in a sustainable way.

“The plan potentially affects a

wide cross-section of the community.

It controls the things

you can do on your property, for

example, and what activities are

allowed to take place in different

parts of the district.

“It’s important that we hear

from as many people as possible

to check on whether we’re on

the right track with the draft

changes we’re proposing.”

The changes being considered

in this phase of consultation

span across 22 different topics

which are likely to have most

impact and be of most interest to

the wider public.

Topics have been grouped

into four categories according

to where they occur and who

they’re most likely to affect

business, rural, residential and

district-wide.

“Anyone can provide their

feedback on the draft changes

proposed so far. We encourage

you to also provide any supporting

facts, data, examples and

documentation to support your

comments.”

More topics are expected to

be added to the consultation

summary document later in the

month.

Feedback from this consultation

will help inform the new

rules to be included in the proposed

plan, which is expected

to be notified for formal public

consultation in early 2020.

The new plan is anticipated

to be in place, subject to any

Environment Court appeals, in

early 2022. Until then any new

resource applications will be assessed

against the current plan.

•Feedback can be

provided online, at drop-in

sessions this month and

next, by email or post. It

is open until October 8.

Fire rages, homes at risk

More housing can only be a good thing

Rolleston

resident

Alice Watson

is studying a

Bachelor of

Agriculture

at Lincoln

University

and talks

about the housing boom in

the district

When travelling through and

around Rolleston, it’s almost

impossible to go far without

passing either an advertisement

for a new or growing subdivision

or houses under construction.

The booming residential expansion

that began in the wake

of the 2010/11 earthquakes

seems to have proven itself the

gift that keeps on giving.

As a fairly sheltered Lincoln

student I could easily grumble

on about the downsides of the

continuous disappearance of

so many trees and paddocks,

but the benefits of the rapid

developments in the district are

undeniable.

Plentiful housing seems to be

helping keep properties (relatively)

affordable, which certainly

beat wrangling shortages

akin to those up the northern

end of the nation.

For young professionals and

students, the continued construction

of new houses makes

the area quite attractive; there

aren’t many places in this country

so near a major city where

the weekly rent can be almost

equal to your grocery bill.

Financials aside, many I’ve

met have expressed their enjoyment

of Rolleston and Lincoln’s

‘out-of-town’ feel and the spaciousness,

with Christchurch

close enough to be convenient.

The peace and pace works

for retirees and families, and

number of schools in the area

has almost tripled in the last

five years.

All in all, this little area seems

to suit people at every stage of

life; for growing a community

this can only be a good thing.

UNDER CONSTRUCTION: Rolleston resident Alice Watson talks

about the increase of housing in the district and its effects. ​

Readers respond to the

potholes on West Belt in

Lincoln being filled in by

Christmas

Gayle Elizabeth Lord –

Well they deserve to have this

pothole fixed after so long but

maybe then some of the ones

around from the earthquake

could get done properly. Sick of

patch-ups that fail as soon as we

get rain. Doesn’t do much for a

car’s suspension when you can’t

see the hole in the dark. Actually

not very good for my teeth either.

Barry Clarke – Lots of

potholes everywhere, council too

busy making cycle lanes to fix

potholes, I don’t mind cycle lanes

but the cyclists still ride on the

footpath or road.

Taina Kahutia Tawhitopou

Connell – What a joke.

Readers respond to the

fourth car v cow crash in

the past couple of months

Eileen Gundesen – We

used to have a farm with cows.

Often I would find members

of the public in our paddocks,

picnicking, picking watercress

from our water races or picking

up wood or pine cones. They got

into the paddocks via the gates,

often leaving them open or not

latched correctly. So don’t always

blame the farmers.

Bruce Marshall – Police

are reminding motorists to keep

speed down at night which is

good advice especially in rural

areas. However, livestock has no

place on roads at anytime unless

being shifted along a road in a

controlled manner. Owners of

livestock need to lift their game.

Janys Rebecca Harrison

– Here’s an idea – the cattle

farmers should be fined if their

cows cause any crashes like this.

Cars and cows obviously do not

go together very well. If there’s a

repeat of this, somebody could

get seriously injured or even die.

Nicola Loach – I know these

are cows, but this should also be

a polite reminder to horse riders

to make themselves as visible

as they can if road riding, and

ensure all gates and fences are

secure. What a terrible outcome

for everyone.

Annette Wilson – Phone

*555. The farmer can’t get

the stock off the road if he

doesn’t know about it. The police

work with the farmers. No one

wants the public injured or the

stock.

Kathryn Macgregor –

Farmers in Selwyn need to be

spoken to.

Technology

Some of the highlights in our

technology area include:

• Robotics;

• 3D Printing;

• EPro8 Challenge;

• Fashion Design and Make.

Technology is a favourite area for

many students due to the ‘handson’

problem solving approach to

learning.

competitions and events offered at Kirkwood.

These include:

• University of Canterbury Academic

Competitions;

• Cantamath;

• School Council.

Music

Music is taught as part of the

performing arts curriculum in

been learning the Guitar,

Piano, Violin, Drums, Flute,

singing in the Choir and

We also have a Rock Band

which performs in assemblies

during the year.

Awards

We value and encourage personal excellence which

Rolleston, West

Melton school

bands on quest

to be rock stars

THEY MAY be young but they

know how to rock.

Selwyn schools took to the

stage last week in the Canterbury

regional Rockshop Bandquest.

Bandquest is a nationwide music

contest for intermediate and primary

school pupils.

The competition is in its eighth

year and attracted 46 bands in

the Canterbury region, which

competed over three nights at St

Margaret’s College.

Rolleston School band Storm

Breaker were third in last

Tuesday’s event. West Melton

School pupil Islan McPherson

was named ‘killer’ guitarist on the

same night for his playing skills.

Event organiser Matt Ealand

said the performances mixed

sophistication with a lack of

self-consciousness, enhanced

by the supportive framework of

Bandquest.

“They’ve been watching TV and

YouTube, they’re aware of what

established musicians are doing

Hamish, Blake and

Trent were among

the West Melton

School pupils at a

plantout day in the

Kowhai Sanctuary on

Thompsons Rd. In

addition to planting

440 natives, the

pupils studied aquatic

invertebrates from the

Waimakariri River and

terrestrial invertebrates

in the plants. The trip

was made possible

with support of

parents, Enviroschools,

Te Ara Kakariki

and Environment

Canterbury.

SCHOOLS

and they want to emulate them,”

he said.

“Rockshop Bandquest is a

confidence-builder that lifts their

game musically, and they tend

to take that with them to high

school, with proven benefits

socially and academically.”

Rockshop spokesman Hamish

Jackson said for many of the

pupils, Rockshop Bandquest is

the biggest musical moment of

their lives. “Bandquest provides a

unique opportunity to kids at this

age. It’s all about participation and

giving it a go. The kids definitely

throw themselves into it and the

results have been amazing,” he

said.

More than 215 bands have entered

Rockshop Bandquest across

the country this year, performing

in events which started on August

20 and are set to finish on Monday

night. The national final will be

broadcast online with the results

announced on September 20.

Have you found a mystery

rock around Faringdon?

Lemonwood Grove School pupils have decorated Faringdon

by placing rocks painted with positive messages around the

community. It was part of a project that aimed to link the

school to the growing neighbourhood. Explore the green

spaces in Faringdon and see if you can find a rock, then read it

and place it somewhere else for other residents to find.

Etiquette for

dog owners

With spring just around the corner, our district’s dog owners will be taking advantage of the

warmer weather to enjoy all of the great outdoor facilities we have to offer.

Around the district there are 36 parks where dogs can run off leashes, although there are some

minor rules which owners need to abide by. This includes staying at least five metres away from

activities like sporting fixtures and facilities such as playgrounds.

Prohibited dog exercise areas include golf courses on Council Reserves, skate parks, secondary

and primary schools and the Springston South Domain.

Senior Animal Control Officer Steve Clarke says the Council wants to see everyone in the

community enjoy what the Selwyn district has to offer.

“The key to having a good balance between dog owners and general facility users is making sure

that the owners have their animals under effective control.

“We are happy to see dog owners running their pets, but we also want to see them respect other

users of facilities, that’s why we need owners to have effective control of their dogs.

“What we mean by effective control is owners being able to call their dogs back quickly if they are

causing any issues to other users.”

Mr Clarke asks owners to have their dogs under effective control in public spaces where wildlife

is present.

He says for the most part Animal Control is really happy with the level of responsibility Selwyn dog

owners show when exercising their pets.

If anyone does want to report anti-social behaviour they can call the Council line on

347 2800.

Not grate

in Leeston

Our grates covering sumps on

Selwyn Street in Leeston are

being dunked or stolen, and

this is causing a significant

safety risk to road users and

pedestrians. Over the last two

weeks five sump grates have

been lifted up and dumped into

the sump, or stolen. Grates are

cast iron, and very heavy so

would take a lot of strength

to move.

Council is asking those

responsible to please stop

and for the public to keep an

eye out, and if they see any

suspicious activity around the

Selwyn Street area to give

Council a call on (03) 347-2800

Have a Go Day a hit in Darfield

Over 800 people spent their Sunday at the Darfield Domain and

Recreation Centre, attending this years Have a Go Day.

Have a Go Day is designed to showcase the sport and recreation

activities Darfield and the wider Selwyn district has to offer, inviting

residents to have a go at a variety of sports.

District Review - Family flats

With our current District Plan up for review, Selwyn District Council

has put a range of topics and draft changes out for public consultation.

The District Plan is essentially the district’s rule book on how land

can be used and developed. The Council is undertaking the review

to make sure the Plan is still fit for purpose and up to date. All

councils are required to review their District Plan every 10 years.

Currently there are 22 topics out for consultation and over the next

few weeks we will look at some of the key topics and the potential

changes being considered.

One topic the Council has identified as needing to be reviewed in

the current District Plan is family flats.

Under the current rules there has been potential confusion around

who can live in a family flat, how big it can be, how many flats can

be put up on one property and how they can be designed to reflect

the look and feel of the surrounding area.

Draft changes which we are considering for the new District Plan include:

· amending the definition of family flat to make it clear it’s a minor

residential unit which needs to be held in the same ownership as

the main dwelling and is associated with the main dwelling.

· removing the requirement that only family members can live in a

family flat. As result there would be no limit on who may occupy

the flat.

· developing new standards which a minor residential unit needs to

comply with if it’s to be allowed without a resource consent.

All key draft changes and a survey for you to have a say on these

changes can be found at www.selwyn.govt.nz/dprfamilyflats

Consultation is open until 5pm, Monday 8 October.

It’s important to note that the District Plan doesn’t determine

the property rates or Development Contributions. Rates are set

through the Council’s Annual Plan and Long Term Plan processes,

while Development Contributions are set by the Development

Contributions Policy.

Rolleston travel

agent wins

bronze award

A ROLLESTON travel agency has

been recognised at the Helloworld

Gala Dinner.

Helloworld Rolleston’s Yvette

Dyer took out bronze for outstanding

success in sales revenue.

The award is a celebration

of the past year’s sales and is

bench-marked against other

branches across Helloworld’s 70

independently-owned branches

nationwide.

It was presented by

Helloworld’s management

and the comedy

duo Jono and Ben.

Helloworld Rolleston

owners Paul and

Yvette

Dyer

Sue Robinson are

proud to have Miss

Dyer as part of the

high-performing

Rolleston team and this award is

testament to her professionalism

and continued focus on her

clients.

“It’s fantastic that Miss Dyer’s

efforts are rewarded,” they said.

“There are some amazing

journeys out there for people to

see and we are continually excited

to be part of the process, it’s

almost as if we undertake the trip

with our clients and we can’t wait

to help our growing database to

new and vibrant places.”

Mike

Bowie is an

ecologist who

specialises in

entomology

(insects

and other

invertebrates). Each

week he introduces a

new species found in

his backyard at Lincoln.

ONE OF the most interesting

spider families are the jumping

spiders or salticidae.

Thirty species have been

described by arachnologists in

New Zealand, but it has been

estimated that as many as 150-

200 species of jumping spiders

occur here.

Salticidae are distinguished

by a square-fronted head, with

four large, forwardly- pointed

eyes, and four smaller eyes on

top of their head, giving them

the best vision of all spiders.

The two inner front eyes are

the largest and assist with their

predatory lifestyle. As their

common name suggests, they

can jump distances of more

than 4cm to catch their prey.

One species commonly seen

around the house or backyard

is the golden-brown jumping

spider trite auricoma.

Favourite haunts of this

7-8mm native species are

among dead leaves of flax or

cabbage tree leaves.

Ellesmere College

Senior A Netball

The Ellesmere College Senior A

Netball team is currently fundraising

to allow us to travel to and compete

in the 2018 South Island Secondary

Schools Tournament in Dunedin, this

September.

Our team currently play in the

premier school netball competition

in Christchurch where on a

Wednesday the team competes in

the Super Net Reserve grade. We

ended the first round in top position

and played off against Rangi Ruru

for a position in SuperNet grade,

narrowly missing out by just a few

goals. We finished the season in this

competition third which the team is

very proud of. The team also play

together in the Saturday competition

at Selwyn Netball Centre under the

name of Southbridge B in the Premier

2 grade.

The team have had many successes

this season including winning the first

round of this competition and are

looking forward to the upcoming

semis and finals. Playing together on

a Wednesday and a Saturday has

been an invaluable experience for

us to have preceding to the time

of the tournament and allows us to

build combinations and develop as

a team.

Earlier this year the team put on

a Ball Gown Parade Fundraiser in

relation to the school formal which

was a very enjoyable night and

was a major financial contribution

towards this tournament.

The team would like to take this

opportunity to express our gratitude

to all of our supporters and sponsors

who are allowing us to compete and

for their support so far in the season.

Proud supporters of

Rugby & Netball in Selwyn

• By Jacob Page

SELWYN WILL have a new

premier grade netball champion

for the first time in five years.

Broadfield A dumped

defending champions Lincoln

A out of the competition with

a 65-46 win in their semi-final

at the Lincoln Event Centre on

Saturday.

Broadfield A will meet

Greenpark A in the final on

Saturday after they eased past

clubmates Greenpark B 74-45.

Broadfield A beat Lincoln A by

two goals in their round-robin

clash a fortnight ago and were

too good again in the suddendeath

atmosphere.

Broadfield A coach Yvonne

Crichton-Hill said she was

impressed by the team’s selfbelief

and their ruthless attitude

against a Lincoln A team

that dominated most of the

competition.

“I was really impressed

with everyone,” she said. “I

was nervous before the game,

probably more nervous than the

players.

“We led for the entire game

and I was just so pleased with

how we looked after the ball for

all four quarters,” she said.

“Often when we get turnovers

we’d get excited and give it

straight back, but on Saturday we

really looked after the ball.”

Crichton-Hill said Maia Hill’s

93 per cent shooting helped her

team build on their lead during

each quarter,

AGILITY: Amy McClintock

looks to pass.

“We ended up winning a lot

of turnovers through the midcourt,

which meant (Lincoln

A’s) talented shooters weren’t

able to make it hard for us as

much as they would have liked,”

Crichton-Hill said.

Lincoln A netball coach

Vanessa Robinson described

their season as a rebuilding year,

with injuries and absence taking

their toll.

“We did the best we could

given the circumstances all year,”

she said. “We’ve gone through

a rebuilding year and I would

expect that will continue next

year.”

Greenpark A had little trouble

brushing aside their clubmates,

in spite of having closer contests

with them throughout the

season. Greenpark B qualified in

second-place but Greenpark A

led the semi-final from start to

finish.

Broadfield A beat Greenpark A

56-48 the last time they met this

season.

Greenpark A coach Karen

Ponsonby said the team were

underdogs going into the

final. “To be honest, Broadfield

should win. We haven’t had a

training in four years,” she said.

“We do have a lot of

experienced heads and we’ve

scored a lot of goals this year, so

I’m sure we’ll give them a good

challenge.”

•Saturday’s final at the

Lincoln Event Centre will start

at 1.45pm.

Country ready to end Metro’s dominance

• By Jacob Page

CANTERBURY Country will

go into their Craw Shield match

against Canterbury Metro on

Sunday at Kaiapoi on a high

after beating Southland Country

36-13.

After narrowly losing their

opening game to Marlborough

in Blenheim a fortnight ago,

Canterbury Country dominated

at set-piece time to ease past

Southland Country in Darfield

on Saturday.

Canterbury Country coach

Nigel Smith said while he was

happy with their scrum and

lineout dominance, he admitted

their defensive pattern and skill

execution on attack would need

to be better against Metro.

Canterbury Country have not

beaten Metro in 10 years,

“We dominated early in the

scrums and won seven lineouts

on their ball so that laid a good

platform. Not everyone has

bought into the defensive pattern

just yet, but it was better than

week one,” he said.

“We identified the space well

on attack and ran hard at the

line, but our skill execution let us

down. We probably left 20 points

out there,”

Smith praised Springston

centre Shaun Harrington.

“He ran the ball hard all

day and was defensively very

committed. We call his position

‘the edge’ and he made sure

there were no defensive holes

there,” Smith said.

“This weekend is our big game

and we’ll have to execute as best

we can.”

Smith said, with the match

acting as a Canterbury B trial,

he hoped several players will put

in big performances to try and

impress the selectors.

“I’ve been really impressed

with a lot of our young talent

and hopefully that shows

through on Saturday.”

Smith said players like

Glenmark-Cheviot blindside

flanker Ben Anderson and

Waihora prop Jim Cummings

continued to impress.

“I’m not sure how Ben does it.

He’ll steal your lineout ball and

he’s always near the ball around

the field – he’s got a big work

rate,” Smith said.

“Jim is a guy we picked

on a whim three years ago

and he’s got better every single

game for us. He solidifies our

scrum.”

•Sunday’s match at Kaiapoi

will kick off at 3pm.

doesn’t have much time for

relaxing.

When he’s not in class, he’s

trying to fit in a bike ride or a

morning swim.

It’s all part of his three-hour-aday,

six-day-a-week schedule.

Reece fell in love with multisport

while watching his dad,

Rob, race in the Coast to Coast.

“I remember three or four

years ago being there at the event

and just trying to spot dad at

every part of the race I could,”

he said.

“I loved the atmosphere of the

race and watching my dad and

others push themselves,”

Reece and his father used to

train together, but Rob admits

his son is too quick for him now.

Reece qualified for the Gold

Coast event, which runs from

September 12-16, by finishing

15th overall in the Pegasus

classic triathlon in November.

Reece said with age-group

triathlon courses shorter than

the open grade courses, he is

focused on getting fit enough to

run at a consistent tempo.

“Your pacing has to be right as

you can’t blow up on one leg of

the race, you just have to go as

hard and as fast as you can.”

Reece said he was excited

to test himself on the same

course that was used for the

Commonwealth Games in April.

“It’s a flat course which

probably suits my style.”

Reece will swim for 750m,

cycle for 20km and finish with a

5km run.

He will turn 16 just three days

before the race and being the

youngest competitor meant he

wasn’t sure how he would go.

“I don’t have any expectations

on where I’d like to finish,” he

said.

“Being my first big

international race, I just want

to see where I’m at and that will

help me work out my training

going forward.”

Reece said he would like to

represent New Zealand at the

Commonwealth Games and the

Olympics in the coming years.

FESTIVITY: One-hundred-and-twenty people attended Hororata’s mid-winter

dinner in the Hororata Hall last Friday. The dinner was about bringing communities

King along with Kate Foster reminisced on past events which had been held in

the hall. Craig Blackburn spoke of what the future holds with the new Hororata

Motoring

Facelift keeps Mazda CX-5 fresh

• By Ross Kiddie

MAZDA NEW Zealand is well

pleased with the performance of

its sport utility vehicle range.

So much so, that a new model

has just recently joined the lineup

- the CX-8. In total Mazda has

four sport utility vehicles in varying

sizes, but the most popular

by far and consistently topping

the sales charts in medium SUV

market is the CX-5.

The CX-5 has been around

since 2012, and early last year

it underwent a huge life cycle

change, reinforcing its desire to

buyers and not relinquishing its

command in the market.

That’s no surprise to me, if you

take any vehicle out of the Mazda

stable today you’ll find quality,

and one which is pleasing in

almost every respect.

Mazda hasn’t rested on its

laurels with CX-5, just a short

time after the latest generation

model was released, the SUV has

had a bit of a makeover, there’s

a realignment of specification,

and an increase in specification

for safety. There’s also an engine

upgrade across all driveline variations

– 2-litre petrol, 2.5-litre petrol

and 2.2-litre diesel. Economy

has been improved, emissions

lowered further and refinement

further increased.

The latter is important, for the

MAZDA CX-5: Major makeover for 2019.

CX-5 has become a vehicle which

thrills with its sophistication, it is

smooth, quiet and amazingly civilised

for what would be deemed

a mainstream car.

Mazda offers the CX-5 in six

variants ranging from $39,995 for

the entry-level 2-litre, and ending

at $57,995 for the range-topping

Limited diesel. Incidentally,

Mazda’s prices include on-road

costs and a three-year/100,000km

free servicing programme.

The evaluation car was the

range-topper, albeit with the 2.5-

litre petrol engine. Column space

doesn’t allow comprehensive

detailing of the engine’s combustion

changes, but I can report

the new unit is a work of art, it is

strong, responsive, and delivers

without vibration nor harshness.

With outputs of 140kW and

252Nm, the 2488cc four-potter

also has power and torque which

will satisfy under most conditions.

The CX-5 is quick for an

SUV, it will scamper to 100km/h

from a standstill in around

9sec and will make an overtaking

manoeuvre in 5sec. Drive

is channelled to all four wheels

through a conventional six-speed

automatic transmission.

The latter has also had some

technical changes so that it

works more in harmony with the

engine, the result is a fluid and

balanced change of ratios, bearing

in mind, too, that the driver

can enhance engine urgency

through a console-mounted sport

mode.

Personally, I used the standard

• Price – Mazda CX-5 Ltd,

$55,745

• Dimensions – Length,

4550mm; width, 1840mm;

height, 1675mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,

2488cc,

140kW, 252Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.9sec

• Fuel usage – 7.4l/100km

normal mode for most of my

evaluation at city speeds, it works

intuitively and doesn’t load the

engine greatly, further enhancing

that economy equation.

Of course, if you like the speed

of sport mode the CX-5 takes on

a lively personality that is useful

on the long highway trek, overtaking

for example, or if the driver

feels like a bit a push through

the tight and twisties.

I had a Trade Me item to

deliver to an address in Rangiora,

so on return to my home in

the city I used the roads from

Loburn to Oxford, crossing the

Waimakariri Gorge bridge to

the Old West Coast Rd. While

the vast majority of this route is

straight, there are some tricky

corners and it was nice to feel the

CX-5’s clingy road manners.

At almost 1.7m tall the CX-5

could be excused for being a

little unbalanced in a corner, but

that’s not the case, with sensible

spring and damper rates and a

sophisticated fully independent

suspension set-up there is

controlled body movement and

decisive suspension absorption.

To be fair, the CX-5, and all

others of its ilk, are not serious

off-road vehicles. The CX-5 is a

handy wagon that will take you

cross-country in style, and it is

useful when the seal runs out.

However, the CX-5’s fourwheel-drive

system is more for

the benefit in low-grip situations,

and on my journey I had

to make a detour through a long

gravel section, the test car felt

well attached to the road and

comfortable when pushed on the

greasy surface. That being the

case, I have no hesitation in saying

that it is a car which will suit

the ski-field access road, and I’m

sure many owners use it for that

purpose.

On that subject, the CX-5’s

popularity doesn’t stop with just

new car buyers, the range also

commands good coin in the preowned

market, which is testament

to the quality of product

and the way buyers view Mazda

vehicles in total.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

For the love of Betty

Thomas Costello has owned more than one Plymouth Duster; the

first when living in Hawaii when he met his wife Leanne in 1991.

His interest in the car was rekindled five years ago

when Thomas purchased a 1974 Plymouth Duster.

“I watched it on TradeMe for around eighteen

months until a ‘buy now’ price tempted me,” explains

Thomas.

Thomas and Leanne love their Plymouth, reminding

them of when they first met.

The Plymouth is powered by a 410 Small Block Indy

headed stroker motor with 727 automatic transmission

and 3000 stall running through an 8¾ rear end

differential, 3.23 ratio and trutrac centre and is fitted

with 275/60/15 tyres.

“It’s loud and aggressive,” says Thomas, who found

the car’s restoration to be a great family project with his

sons helping recondition and enhance the motor and

rebuild the suspension

The Plymouth has an imitation snakeskin vinyl

rooftop and its original paintwork (complete with

dents, dings and scratches), and is nicknamed ‘Brown

Betty’ due to its colour, a name that has caught on with

friends who call her ‘Betty’.

It has a tidy interior while the dashboard has been

refurbished and the automatic transmission mounted

on the floor, as opposed to the original column gear

change.

“I’ve had a couple of manual floor mounted

Plymouths, which are probably worth more, however,

the Duster has sentimental value and is a fun car,”

explains Thomas who says the family love cruising in

it.

“My eldest son is tall so prefers driving the Plymouth

rather than accessing the back seat where there’s only

room for two. The front bench has seatbelts for three.”

The whole rear seat back can pack down flat

making room for skis or surfboards. This feature was

introduced in 1973, with only around 300 made with

this option in 1974.

Most weekends, the family head out in ‘Betty’.

“There’s no point owning a special car if you don’t

drive and enjoy it,” suggests Thomas, who thinks his

Plymouth Duster may currently be the only one in

Canterbury as it is usually one of a kind at car events,

although at Caroline Bay it had the company of a

Plymouth Duster from Dunedin.

“People love its uniqueness and appreciate the work

that’s gone into the car.”

Thomas and the boys have taken the car around the

circuit as well as down the ¼ mile at Ruapuna. They

have also made many like-minded friends who helped

and encouraged Thomas during its restoration.

This kind of support is the reason Thomas and others

from the Selwyn Petrolheads are assisting with another

Selwyn Motor Fest, where the 1974 Plymouth Duster

will also be on show.

With the support of the Selwyn District Council,

this event will be held on Sunday, 25th November,

from 10am until 3pm (on the same site as last year -

opposite Rolleston College). If wishing to be involved

as a sponsor or exhibitor, contact selwynmotorfest@

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Local business expansion

reflects district’s growth

The population and business growth

in the Selwyn district have seen many

local businesses expanding and Rolleston

based Holland Collision Centre is one

such business with the company currently

finalising Council consent for the

construction of a new building just across

the road from their existing site.

The business will still be working out

of its current site with the new building

devoted to repairs that are more structural

in nature. The new panel shop will be

fitted out with a new 3D chassis measuring

system and the latest technology in the

field, allowing Holland Collision Centre to

keep up with demand for heavy structural

repairs, such as when a vehicle is in a

serious crash or more complex repairs need

to be undertaken.

Business will not be interrupted during

the process of construction with the new

building is expected to be up and running

by the end of the year.

As specialists in all facets of panel repairs

from the removal dents and dings to larger

structural repairs and paint refinishing

on vehicles of all sizes, Hollands Collision

Centre is well positioned to serve the

people of Rolleston as well as other parts of

the Selwyn district. Whether it is a smaller

car or larger vehicle such as a motorhome,

caravan, horse float or any kind of work or

refinishing needed for a truck, they have

the expertise and equipment to do the job.

As a local employer, many young people

have had the opportunity to enter the

industry with apprenticeships at Holland

Collision Centre. Many have also had

promotional opportunities, taking on

higher level positions within the company.

One such person is Jake Ackers, who

recently won an IAG business scholarship

after being one of 40 candidates.

Jake has now moved from his role as

panel shop foreman to become the second

on-site assessor. With two on-site assessors

and as approved repairers for all major

insurance companies, Holland Collision

Centre is now in an even better position

to look after your panel needs. They can

take care of the paperwork along with the

repairs to have you back on the road in the

quickest possible time. Loan cars are also

available if needed.

Holland Collision Centre would like to

thank all their customers including their

local business clients for their continued

patronage over the years.

Holland Collision Centre is open

7.30am until 5pm, Mondays to Fridays

and Saturday mornings from 8am until

12noon. If you need their assistance you

PETS & PAWS

Don’t forget me

In September 2010 and February 2011 Canterbury experienced two

major earthquakes. People weren’t the only casualties of these

disasters; hundreds of animals were affected too. Some of these

frightened animals suffered homelessness, injury, and abandonment.

In September 2010 and February 2011

Canterbury experienced two major

earthquakes. People weren’t the only

casualties of these disasters; hundreds of

Do you have a plan in place for your

pet in the event of a disaster?

New Zealanders have strong bonds with

their pets. The more pets you have, the

less likely you are to evacuate if you have

insufficient resources.*

When a disaster happens – earthquake,

flood, fire, hurricane, there is much to

think about. Firstly the safety of you and

your family, however your pets are family

too, so if you own one or more pets, then it

is worthwhile creating a plan of action that

includes them also.

If you have to leave, take your pet

with you.

property for several days, and your pet may

not survive without you. Quickly collect

your pet/s, cover them with a towel or

blanket or put them in a pet carrier or on a

lead. Leave their toys and bedding behind if

urgency and safety are paramount.

If you cannot leave, keep your pets close

to you. Do not let them crawl under beds,

as they may be crushed (earthquake). For

your safety, as your pet may be terrified,

cover and wrap them with a towel or

blanket. After the crisis has passed, comfort

your pet with words of encouragement and

lots of cuddles.

Other things you can do, in case your

terrified pet escapes, is to make sure it is

tagged and microchipped with your up-todate

contact details.

Develop a taste for tangy tamarillo

• By Diana Noonan

TAMARILLO are a

favourite cool-season fruit,

maturing from March or

April, and well into winter.

Depending on variety and

pruning regimes, they will

even continue to produce

into early December.

Three main varieties of

tamarillo are now available.

The reds, with their deep

purple-red skin and darkred

colouring around black

seeds, are especially sought

after for decorating dessert

dishes.

Amber varieties, with

a golden skin tinged with

a red blush, are said to be

the sweetest tamarillos,

although the fruit tends

to be smaller than those

of other varieties. Gold

tamarillos are large and

fleshy and are a little sweeter

Safety

in the

Garden

As we approach the prime time for gardening, it is a

timely reminder for everyone about the safe practices for

gardening.

Gardening is very popular here in Canterbury and as the

weather improves we will find ourselves out and about

in the garden more over the coming months. With this in

mind, we want to ensure everyone is aware of the safe

practices of gardening, most importantly how to protect

yourself from contracting Legionnaires.

Legionellosis (Legionnaire’s disease) is a form of

pneumonia, and is caused by a bacterium called

Legionella found in moist conditions in the environment.

You can catch the disease by inhaling airborne droplets

or particles that contain the bacteria. The illness can

present itself in mild or severe cases, and can sometimes

be fatal. It is more common in elderly people, particularly

if they smoke, have poor immunity, or are already ill. It

will usually develop in 2-10 days after exposure to the

bacteria and symptoms include fever, chills, headaches

and muscle pain. It will then develop into chest infectionlike

symptoms. If you do present with these symptoms

after gardening, inform your Doctor you have been doing

so, so they can test for Legionnaires.

Please head to our website www.igro.co.nz for more

information about Legionnaires, or give us a call on 03

3479415.

than the reds.

The tamarillo is a

subtropical plant that is

frost-tender to -2 deg C.

Grown under cover, they

become susceptible to

sclerotinia rot.

This limits the areas

where the trees can be

planted although gardeners

in marginal areas can hedge

their bets by planting close

to a heat-retaining wall and

We are here

new

product

Here are some tips to reduce

your chances of contracting

this disease:

• Read the warning labels

on bags of compost and

potting mixes

• Wear gloves when

handling soils, mulches,

composts and potting

mixes

• Wear a dust mask if you

are using these mixes

indoors, or if it is windy

• Dampen mixes before

using them

• Always open bags away

from your face and in

an open area (not in a

greenhouse)

• Wash your hands

thoroughly before eating,

drinking or smoking or

touching your face

under the eaves of a house

with a sunny north-facing

aspect.

Tamarillo seriously

resent wet feet so excellent

drainage is essential.

However, their shallow

roots also render the trees

susceptible to drought so

moisture must be provided

during summer.

The key to knowing when

to pick tamarillo is to be

familiar with the variety

you are growing and to pick

when the entire fruit is the

colour described on the

growing label.

If the stalk has begun to

turn yellow, and is slightly

loose where it meets the

fruit, this is another sign of

full ripeness.

Picked at this stage, the

fruit will keep for up to

two weeks in a fridge or for

a week in a bowl at room

temperature. If you pick

fruit when there is still a

ring of green around the

top (the stalk end), the fruit

won’t ripen to sweetness

and will remain acidic.

Store tamarillo with other

fruit, such as apples, to

hasten ripening.

•www.gardener.kiwi

FLAVOUR: A well-tended tamarillo tree will produce

up to 20kg of fruit.

SAFER ACCESS

Week commencing WeDneSDAY, 29TH AUgUST 2018

Luxury, space and garaging!

From the moment you step through the front door, the

clever use of light and placement of amenities ushers you

forth into a myriad of possibility.

Every aspect of this home has been methodically

conceptualized. Set apart by quality design and premium

materials, the expansive views of the garden practically

transport the viewer to the countryside, despite the

convenience of its well-heeled address in one of Rolleston

premier neighbourhoods.

Both serene and inviting, this property’s meticulous

configuration and flow of space will appeal to many. Art

and design enthusiasts will appreciate the tall ceilings and

appointed interior wall space from which to hang their

collection. Any would-be chef would be pleased with the

induction cooktop, double wall ovens, butlers pantry and

oversized central island. The well-equipped and highly

organized will delight in this property’s vast amount of

storage and all who inspect in person will recognize the high

quality of furnishings and the incorporation of thoughtful

technology, such as internal vacuuming, Bose entertainment

system and auto louvre roof over the outdoor entertainment

area. Whilst the interior exudes warmth and luxury, the

garden was clearly designed with entertaining in mind.

Address: 2 Riverstone Drive, Rolleston

The many double-glazed windows overlook the impeccably

landscaped garden oasis, treed and gated for privacy,

With four car garaging and parking for boats and caravans

this home surely will not last.

18 Boulez Mews, Rolleston

After 9 years in this simply remarkable home my vendors

and their busy family have out grown this generous

property and are making it available to the market.

Situated in one of Rolleston’s premier neighbourhoods,

this home needs to be explored to be fully appreciated.

Whether it’s the expansive north facing gardens, or the

exceptional outdoor entertainment area, the oversized

open plan living or the chefs kitchen with butlers pantry,

you most certainly will be the envy of all your friends at 18

4 2 2 1 3

Boulez Mews.

To further enhance this family friendly homes

desirability is triple car garaging, as well off street

parking for caravans, boats, maybe even a bus! I’m

pretty sure the lot will fit.

If you’ve been battling with the lack of space look no

further.

One thing is absolutely certain, viewing is an

absolute must!

Building on a budget

Building your own home is one of the biggest investments of a lifetime and with

a few clever tips we show you how to make the most of what you can afford.

41 Shelley Street,

Rolleston

Get smart with your money to achieve

your dream home without compromising

on what’s really important.

Consider buying a large plot of land with

friends or family which you can split into

smaller lots. Many great

locations tend to cover

more ground, so get the

stunning harbour view

you dream of by sharing

the cost with someone you

don’t mind having as a

neighbour.

Opting for lowmaintenance

building

materials, like vinyl siding

and metal roofing saves in

the long run. Although

they may be more

expensive to install you

will save money on future

repairs, replacement or

repainting.

Using salvaged and recycled

materials and componentry

from the abundance of

demolition sites around the

city not only adds valuable

character to new builds, but

can save money, too.

For the safety and security

of your home, don’t skimp on structural

elements, doors and windows. Buy the

very best you can afford and, together

with your architect or builder, determine

other areas you could save on to allow for

a few luxuries.

It’s important not to waste valuable cash

on overbuilding. Look carefully at the

existing properties in the area and be

will you have recourse

what you want

it will ensure you stay

on budget, on time,

and all with

minimal stress.

aware that building a home that is bigger

and better than those of your neighbours

will not necessarily equate to a fair price

if and when it’s time to sell. instead, the

value of your build will be determined

by the lower-priced homes

around it.

The experience of a wellqualified

contractor is an

invaluable asset in any

building project. Not only

should anything go wrong,

but their experience in

the industry means they

will have established

relationships with suppliers

and subcontractors, whom

they trust to deliver the best

workmanship possible.

Keep a close eye on

construction allowances as

your home is being built

to ensure you are getting

what you asked for and

what you paid for. if you

had initially agreed on

using a specific brand, for

example, then don’t settle

for less, unless you discuss

a cost adjustment with your

builder or contractor.

Many a building project has snowballed

out of control in the financial department

due to changes being made to the design

and materials once building is already

underway. Deciding exactly what you

want and then sticking with it will ensure

you stay on budget, within your expected

time frame, and all with minimal stress.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Stunning home design

You will be swept away by the quality,

style and presentation of Faye Homes’

new Faringdon show home. Built with

family living in mind, all 283sqm (240sqm

interior/43sqm portico) is a must see.

“Everyone loves this house. It has great

orientation for the sun so is extremely

warm and energy efficient,” says Marshall

Wang from Faye Homes.

There is excellent flow making this home

ideal for raising a family, especially with

the natural division between living and

bedroom quarters, so there is peace for

those sleeping.

With open plan living, there is room to

move, play and interact yet double sliders

mean the lounge can also be closed off for

a warm, quiet, private place where a gas

fire adds to the ambience. The dining and

living areas balance the grand kitchen,

which looks out across its generous island

to a large hardwood deck. Tucked in

behind is a scullery making the perfect

little kitchenette complete with large

appliance cupboard and sink, so the mess

stays out of sight.

With perfect indoor/outdoor flow

this home is ideal for family living and

entertaining; right down to the outdoor

gas fire set within the portico.

The master bedroom is a haven. Sliders

lead out to a sheltered courtyard, also

accessed from the living area. The ensuite

has a double vanity, fully tiled walk-in

shower and separate toilet; all tucked in

behind a large walk-in robe which boasts

lots of shelving and hanging space.

Each double bedroom has a large

wardrobe and study nook. These are

served by the main bathroom, which is

three rooms in one; a separate toilet, a

showering room with freestanding bath

and walk-in tiled shower, and vanity area.

The result is: three people can use the

facilities at one time.

The show home has true double garaging

and fantastic storage with two large double

cupboards in the hall, as well as another

in the spacious laundry, all with striking

designer series panel doors. The laundry

itself is pure class, with built-in cabinetry

and engineered stone bench top, as is in

the kitchen and scullery.

Throughout, the Hampton style comes

to the fore with detailed architraves,

cabinetry and internal doors adding a

feeling of opulence.

A masterful blend of polystyrene, schist

and cedar form the exterior cladding. The

result is a home, which has an incredible

presence on its 784sqm section.

Faye Homes has had tremendous

response from people viewing their

latest show home; not surprising given

its high-quality fit-out and attention to

detail. There are many extra features like

the continuation of the schist stone wall

into the entryway, subtly dividing the front

door from the living area. Another is the

coat/footwear room, which ensures a tidy

front entrance.

Faye Homes’ Faringdon show home

is located at 560 East Maddisons Road

in Rolleston and is open 12noon-

4pm, Wednesdays to Sundays or by

appointment.

Making the most of

show home viewing

Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for

features and fittings to put into a new home. It can also be helpful

for getting a spatial feel for other aspects of a house design.

Before heading out for a day’s

viewing, conduct an internet search.

identify the locations of show home

villages and the types and sizes of the

various building company’s homes on

display, noting down the square metre

size of each home.

if wanting a high end, architectural

design, focus on the larger homes that

have desirable design features. if at the

entry or middle level of the market,

earmark homes that fit this taking in

other show homes for extra ideas.

allow sufficient time when visiting each

show home, asking for a floor plan that

has room sizes before walking through.

Check also the floor to ceiling height

of the rooms and consider how this feels

and whether you prefer a cosier feel with

the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or

more spaciousness created with a higher

stud or exposed ceiling beams.

if doors and windows are taller than

normal, weigh their effect in creating

a more luxurious and spacious feel,

against potential inconvenience for small

children, cleaning and maintenance.

on entering each room, take account of

how much furniture is in each room and

whether there is sufficient space for the

furniture you will have in the room and

the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look

too, at storage capacity throughout the

home and whether this is adequate.

in the living areas, consider whether a

lounge separated from the family living

room or a true open plan kitchen, dining,

living/lounge area is preferable, and

compare internal kitchens with those that

have natural light.

Look too at the layout of

the kitchen: whether to have

an island sink or breakfast

bar where a newspaper can

be read, and children can

sit and draw or complete

homework; the positioning

of appliances; and how

important having a pantry is.

for the little rooms, equate

space and features desired

with that needed, especially

if the budget needs to be

sharp. it might be nice to

have a large walk-in shower

with double shower heads

but is this just fanciful and

will the extra cleaning annoy you long

term. a laundry in the garage is also more

economical though a separate laundry

may be handier.

Bring the garage size into the equation

also. as these vary considerably, assess

the actual measurements of each garage

viewed comparing this with the space

needed for your motor vehicles and other

items to be stored there. if a good number

of toys will be housed there, it may be

sensible to increase the size of this area of

the home.

By imagining what you need, want and

will have in your new home, you will be in

a better position to confidently choose a

design that works for you.
