COMMUNITY watchdogs have

joined the crusade against bad

driving.

Two electronic signs with

safety messages have been

temporarily placed on roadsides

in the district in a bid to make

driving in Selwyn safer.

It is a part of a Community

Patrol of New Zealand project

which is being managed by the

Selwyn Community Patrol and

supported by Selwyn police.

The signs are kept on trailers

and police have been helping advise

where to park them.

Patrol secretary Murray

Allison said the signs will be in

the district until early September,

with the message and location

continuously changing.

He said the initiative follows

concerns about “what happens

on rural roads and driving in

general.”

Last week the sign, which said

“no cellphone use,” was on the

side of Springs Rd near Lincoln

Memorial

orchard

plan for

quake

victims

welcomed

• By Sarla Donovan

A PREBBLETON woman has

welcomed a proposed orchard in

memory of her late husband, and

another man, who died in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

The garden would be in memory

of both Owen Wright and Ian

Foldesi who lost their lives during

the earthquake.

Mr Wright’s wife, Megan, told

Selwyn Times​she was happy with

the idea.

“To be honest I haven’t been able

to face going back since our home

was demolished. However, I think

the orchard idea is lovely and very

healing. We could picnic under

the blossoms rather than facing an

empty space,” she said.

Mr Wright was working at his

joinery business in Woolston when

the 6.3 magnitude quake struck at

12.51pm.

Assured his family was safe, he

spent a couple of hours tidying up

the factory before leaving for home

in his Land-Rover.

Unable to drive through the tunnel,

he ferried other stuck people

up the Bridle Path in his vehicle,

before setting off on foot to get

home on the other side of the hill.

SELWYN TIMES

“A LOT of tradesmen do it and a lot of

women drivers do it, I hate to say it, but

they do.”

What Selwyn Community Patrol

secretary Murray Allison is saying today is

drivers on cellphones (page 1).

I agree: Tradies and (mainly) young women are the worst

offenders.

Tradies are more open – they drive with their phones to their

ears. They’re talking.

Young women are the texters when driving and they try to

be more discreet. But the giveaway is that they drive looking

down and with one hand on the wheel. The other is below the

dashboard texting away.

So don’t step out on those pedestrian crossings thinking those

drivers will stop. They might be looking at something else.

Pools reviewed as

the district’s population grows

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SELWYN’S AQUATIC facilities

will be reviewed to cater for the

district’s booming population.

The district council operates

five pools including the aquatic

centre in Rolleston. The Darfield

and Southbridge pools will be

the focus of

the review. The

other pools are

the Leeston

Learners Pool

and Sheffield

Memorial Pool.

Darfield’s

population is estimated

to grow Pat McEvedy

from 2957 to

3562 by 2025, while Southbridge

will grow from 959 to 1030.

The aim of the review is to

work out which aquatic facilities

need to be prioritised for

funding or redevelopment in the

future.

It comes after work to upgrade

the plant rooms and equipment

at the Darfield and Southbridge

pools was approved in the Long

Term Plan 2018-28.

Funding of $342,500 and

$90,000 was approved for

Darfield and Southbridge respectively.

The review will start next

month. Selwyn’s population is

expected to increase significantly

over the next seven years, with

the district estimated to grow

from about 53,830 residents to

67,228 by 2025.

This has prompted a $14.8

million expansion of the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre, which is expected

to be completed by mid- 2020.

Darfield pool sub-committee

secretary Victor Dockerill said

while its swimming pool is

“fairly adequate”, he would like a

year-round covered pool.

Currently Darfield’s main 25m

x 9m pool is located outside and

only operates in the summer. It

also has two indoor pools and a

paddling pool.

Mr Dockerill said not only do

Darfield residents use the pool,

people drive from as far as Sheffield,

Springfield and Whitecliffs.

District councillor Pat

McEvedy said while pool

upgrades are always needed,

the Southbridge pool recently

received a new set of changing

Southbridge pool committee

member Brenda Hampton said

the pool already has long term

projects planned, including an

upgrade of the paddling pool

and heating.

Southbridge has two outdoor

pools – a 25m x 13m lane pool

and a 5m x 6.7m paddling pool –

which operate in the summer.

The district council said

neither pool is at risk of being

closed.

Group formed

to keep watch

on Faringdon

• By Emily O’Connell

TWENTY-FIVE people

are patrolling the streets

of Rolleston’s Faringdon to

ensure it stays safe.

Organiser Chris O’Brien

said since starting about two

months ago, the group has

more than 250 members and

25 patrollers.

“It was just basically a

casual conversation over a

beer about three months ago

and it’s kind of grown into

quite a large initiative,” Mr

O’Brien said.

He said the aim of the watch

is to make sure Faringdon is a

safe place to “work, play and

live.”

“We want to deter criminal

activity . . . and we want

to make sure our children

are safe and protected,” Mr

O’Brien said.

He hopes it encourages other

parts of Rolleston to start-up

community neighbourhood

watches also.

“Then eventually amalgamate

together to create a Rolleston

patrol group,” Mr O’Brien

said.

The group has received support

from the district council,

police, developers and different

building companies.

Mr O’Brien said the financial

assistance it has received

has gone towards purchasing

magnetic signage for vehicles,

radios, high visibility vests

with labelling, identification

cards, safety beacons, vetting

processes and torches.

But in the long-term, he said

the group will require financial

support of residents.

•If you are interested in

creating a community

neighbourhood watch

in your area, or live in

Faringdon and wish to

become a patroller, phone

Chris on 0210 293 0190.

Rolleston library design revealed

PLAN: The design

concept for the

proposed $22.2

million Rolleston

Library and

Community Centre

has been revealed.

Construction of the

library and centre is

set to begin in April

and it is planned

to be completed in

2020. Key features

of the building will

include adaptable

and flexible

spaces that can be

reconfigured for

different uses, space

for the predicted

library collection,

meeting rooms, a

performance space

and a coffee station. ​

Bid to produce better drivers

•From page 1

Senior Constable Andy

Williamson said he “fully

supports” the project and thinks

it’s a great idea.

“Anything we can do that’s

going to get through to people

to make them think,” he

said.

Senior Constable Williamson

said cellphones are “a major distraction”

and are a “large cause of

crashes.”

Mr Allison said it’s hard to say

whether the signs, which have

been provided by Fulton Hogan,

will make a difference but they do

make people think twice about

their actions.

“Certainly when we put the stop

one up we sat down the road for a

short time and saw what happened

and people we’re certainly stopping,”

he said.

When the four-week trial finishes,

Mr Allison said there will be

a review and it will decide whether

to keep the signs in place.

“It might become a more permanent

fixture, it might stay there all

the time,” he said.

The signs are also being trialled

in Ashburton.

Invictus team visits Rolleston College

The Invictus Games is

an international sporting

event for wounded, injured

and ill veteran and active

service personnel. The

New Zealand Defence

Force Invictus Games

team stopped by Rolleston

College on Friday

THE NEW Zealand Defence

Force Invictus Games team and

Rolleston College have joined

forces to spread the word on the

healing power of the games.

The games use the power

of sport to inspire recovery,

support rehabilitation and

generate understanding and

respect for wounded, injured

or ill current and former

servicemen and women. The

NZDF is sending 25 competitors

to this year’s games, being held

in Sydney.

Students at Rolleston College

have been studying adaptive

sport, and Friday’s visit gave

them a chance to hear the team’s

stories and see them training.

Army Warrant Officer Class

2 Koro Hati, who won bronze

in team archery at a previous

Games, said team members had

SPIRIT: The New Zealand Defence Force Invictus Games team visited Rolleston College on Friday.

shared their experiences and

ongoing physical and mental

challenges with the students.

“They were really interested

in what we had to say. It shows

them that it’s not just ablebodied

people that can enjoy

sport. Anybody can,” Warrant

Officer Hati said.

“They also learned that the most

impaired person is the most able

person when you’re in a chair.”

Rolleston College physical

education head Andrew

Gebbie said a key part of the

module had been teaching the

students empathy.

“Our learners have taken on

board the presentations and the

values of the Invictus Games and

have started to make links to our

school values,” Mr Gebbie said.

“It has been a big part of this

unit, having conversations about

empathy and understanding. It’s

so empowering for our learners

to talk about the challenges that

the Invictus competitors have

overcome.”

Mr Gebbie said hearing from

team members with mental

illness such as post traumatic

stress disorder had been hugely

important.

“It is very obvious that an

amputee or someone in a wheelchair

has a disability but to …

talk openly about mental illness,

and specifically PTSD, was a

great opportunity. This gives our

learners the tools to recognise

these feelings within themselves

and talk openly about what was

previously not spoken of.

“It has taught our learners

that the greatest challenges or

traumas can be overcome.”

The team visited the school on

the Invictus Games’ Fly the Flag

day – an event when all 18 allied

nations competing in the games

fly their Games’ flag. The New

Zealand team left theirs with the

college for students to sign, and

will take it with them to fly at

their accommodation in Sydney.

Team manager Warrant Officer

Gareth Farmer said a number

of personnel at the Burnham

Military Camp had links to the

school and the visit marked the

start of an important relationship.

This year’s event will be held

from October 20 to 27 and will

involve 500 competitors from 18

allied nations competing in 11

different adaptive sports.

by Auckland RSA, Christchurch

ROLLESTON woman Jules

Bramley will proudly represent

her country in this year’s

Invictus Games Sydney – and

she’s doing it for her children.

The games use the power of

sport to inspire recovery, support

rehabilitation and generate

understanding and respect for

wounded, injured or ill current

and former servicemen and

women.

Mrs Bramley is part of the

25-strong New Zealand Defence

team going to the Games. Husband

Brett and children Austin,

12, and Jorja, 7 – who are both at

Clearview Primary School – will

be there to cheer her on.

“That’s the main reason I’m

doing it, for them. I just want to

show them that even though I

am injured and I do have restrictions,

there are things out there

that I can still do, and I can still

do well.

“I can really train for it just as

much as you can for any other

sport. It’s really showing them

never to give up.

Mrs Bramley was an army

medic for 21 years, serving

in East Timor, Afghanistan

and Samoa after the tsunami

there. Over the years she badly

injured her hips carrying heavy

equipment on her back and now

essentially has no cartilage left

in her hips, leaving her with

severely restricted movement in

one leg.

She’s still with the NZDF, as

a civilian, training medics that

go through the NZDF – a move

prompted by being unable to

achieve the required military

fitness due to her injuries.

“I haven’t been able to play

sport, I can’t run, so it’s really restricted

my life, really,” she said.

“The first time I got in the

chair and played a really hard

game of rugby, I walked off

feeling amazing – being able to

play a game again and being able

to play the full game and not

having to stop,” Mrs Bramley

said.

“I’ve been really restricted for

quite a long time and just having

the ability to show my kids that

I can get out there and do stuff,

even though it’s slightly adapted,

it’s a great feeling.”

Mrs Bramley, who grew up

in Rangiora and whose parents

still live there, competed in the

Invictus Games in Toronto last

year and she’s hooked.

“It was amazing. Can’t explain

it. Just eye-opening. It really

made me realise that everyone’s

got their own story. No matter

what it is, everyone is there

to do the same thing, achieve

the same goals, whether it be

rehabilitation or just learning

to move on in their life and play

sports again.”

She will this year compete in

$230,000 boost

will help us upgrade services in a

Mr Ward said.

“We will be spending a substantial

which will be welcomed by lake

users.’’

Mr Ward said the projects will

be completed by December 1.

Support for safer school car park

• By Emily O’Connell

THE Sheffield-Waddington

Community Committee has

thrown its support behind

Sheffield Primary School’s bid

for a new car park.

It sent a letter to the district

council

recently

highlighting

the ongoing

problems

with the

school’s car

park not

fitting the

needs of its

Nick Pratt

104 pupils.

“The

committee hope that you are able

to assess and transform this area

into a workable and safe car park

for parents, staff, bus drivers,

visitors and the wider Sheffield

Community,” it read.

School principal Nick Pratt

said its current car park can

fit 14 vehicles at a push and it’s

not sufficient for its growing

population.

Mr Pratt said it has been

working with parents, police,

bus operators and truck firms

as well as training pupils and

issuing them with high visibility

vests for coming to and from

school.

“We have mitigated everything

to the best of our ability . . .

however, the fundamental issue

is there is not enough space for

our children’s parents to pick up

and drop off their children in a

safe manner,” he said.

Mr Pratt said its proposal

is for the district council to

scoop away the top soil which is

opposite the school on Tramway

Rd and shingle it so it can be a

car park.

He said it would then set up a

monitored crossing which is a

safe distance from the main car

park entrance.

District council asset

engineer transportation Mark

Chamberlain said it is working

to fix “a number of issues with

the existing car park within

the road reserve and it is

programmed for a reseal this

year.”

However, he said there are no

plans for the district council to

do work on the grassed area on

SAFETY FIRST:

Sheffield

Primary

principal Nick

Pratt says the

school has

issued high

visibility vests

to its pupils,

but now it

needs the help

of the district

council to

create a safer

car parking

area.

Tramway Rd.

“If Sheffield Primary School

wishes to extend the car park,

then this will need to be funded

through the school or MoE, or

request the council fund this

work as part of the Annual

Plan process, as per policy,” Mr

Chamberlain said.

Mr Pratt said it was not willing

to spend money directed for

learning on car parking but it

would go through every process

possible.

Fire rages, homes at risk

FOUND: Police

recovered items,

including a bicycle

and shoes stolen in

door-stepping cases

in Christchurch.

Door-stepping cases

emerge in Rolleston

• By Matt Salmons

DOOR-stepping burglaries

are taking place in

Rolleston.

It comes on the

back of similar

incidents in

Broomfield, Hei

Hei, Hornby and

Wigram.

A pair of

Nike running

shoes had been

reported stolen

in Rolleston last

week, with items also

reported missing from a

neighbouring property,

Senior Constable Bruce

Ward said.

He said it was likely it

wasn’t the same offenders

as in Christchurch.

A 14-year-old had been

apprehended in relation

to the Christchurch

burglaries in the city

and would attend a

Youth Justice family

conference. Senior

Constable Ward said

police had spoken

to three of a further

eight suspects who

had all denied involvement.

“But [the suspects] know

that we’re on to them, so

here’s hoping that will slow

it down,” he said.

Senior Constable Ward

said he believed doorstepping

was a “bit of a

faze”, which could eventually

slow down in the same

manner as tagging.

He encouraged people to

report any items that went

missing outside

their homes instead of

blaming themselves or

ignoring it.

“Just be mindful, if

things are lying around

outside your door they’re

liable to walk. But we want

to know.”

been stolen from

outside your property,

Bruce Ward at the

Hornby Police Station

A PLAN outlining how

the district council will

population is being

launched on Friday.

The Welcoming Plan

describes 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.

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.

Mayor Sam Broughton

will give a speech at Friday’s

launch along with

other dignitaries. There

will also be a Kapa Haka

performance, a Kiwianathemed

lunch and a

presentation from the

newcomers and migrants

steering group.

The plan includes a the

Welcoming Communities

Standard, which provides

councils and communities

with a benchmark.

It has organised around

eight outcomes necessary

to building a welcoming

community.

These are inclusive

leadership, welcoming

communications, equitable

access, connected and

inclusive communities,

economic development

and business and employment,

civic engagement

and participation, welcoming

public spaces and

culture and identity.

In the past year, more

than 370 people from 40

different countries across

the world living in Selwyn

have become New Zealand

citizens.

Mayor Sam Broughton

says it’s positive to see the

district become home to

a wide range of nationalities.

“As a growing district,

it’s fantastic to see people

from all over the world

wanting to make Selwyn

a permanent home,” said

Mr Broughton.

•From page 1

Mr Wright was on the

Major Hornbrook track,

10min from his Norton

Close home when boulders

loosened by an aftershock

struck him.

Father-of-three Mr

Foldesi was walking the

Stan Helms track when

the earthquake triggered a

rockslide that swept across

the track and carried him

25m down a cliff face.

He was found hours later

by his daughter, Sarah.

Now Mr Wright’s former

neighbours Betty and

David Purdue want to use

red-zoned land at Norton

Close/Somes Rd which is

currently maintained by

Land Information New

Zealand for a memorial

orchard dedicated to the

two men.

The land was owned by

Mr and Mrs Wright, and

Kay and David Commons.

It has four existing apple

and pear trees.

Mrs Purdue said the trees

were Mr Wright’s pride and

joy.

Ian Foldesi

“He was very proud

of them and when the

houses were demolished

we almost stood in front

of the digger; we chatted

up the driver and said:

‘Please, please see if you can

contour the land around

Owen’s trees without taking

them out’.”

The land runs alongside

the Major Hornbrook

track and would be an

ideal resting point, Mrs

Purdue said, in a spot with

Owen Wright

plenty of sun.

“There isn’t a memorial

in Lyttelton to the two

Lyttelton people who died.

I think it would make a

really nice pausing place.”

Mr and Mrs Purdue

have written to the Banks

Peninsula Community

Board proposing the idea.

Board members “soundly

supported” the concept

in principle when it was

discussed at its meeting last

week.

Late night Lyttelton Tunnel closures

From Sunday 26 August, you’ll

need to plan your travel around

late night tunnel closures.

These are essential to both install

and test a new fire protection system

inside the tunnel.

Work on this $28.7 million project

is expected to be completed early

next year.

Traffic lane closures are timed

for late night/early morning on

the lightest tunnel traffic days of

the week, ie Sunday, Monday and

Tuesday.

TUNNEL

CLOSED

11pm to 4am

Sunday 26 August

Tuesday 28 August

The tunnel will open to

CELEBRATION: The Cancer Society’s Selwyn Centre was

officially opened last Thursday. ​

Cancer support

centre opens

THE CANCER Society of New

Zealand Canterbury-West Coast

Division has opened a centre in

Rolleston.

The centre is located on 6B

Kidman St and offers support,

information and advice to those

affected by cancer.

Chief executive Elizabeth

Chesterman said its “volunteerled

cancer support groups are

well established throughout

Selwyn and the centre will be an

additional resource for them and,

most importantly, for many others

trying to cope with cancer.”

Centre co-ordinator Jackie

Claridge has been heartened by

the response the new centre has

received. “People are thrilled that

Cancer Society now has a base in

Selwyn,” she said.

“Schools have been really keen

to work with us and show their

support, as have other community

organisations.”

Mrs Claridge said volunteers

are the life-force of the organisation

and one of the valuable ways

people can contribute is through

the volunteer driving service

which supports people accessing

treament in Christchurch.

With Daffodil Day on August

31, the Cancer Society is encouraging

people give generously.

Backyard Critters

Moths come to light at night

Mike Bowie is an ecologist

who specialises in

entomology (insects

and other

invertebrates).

Each week he

introduces a

new species

found in his

backyard at

Lincoln. His column aims

to raise public awareness

of biodiversity, the variety

of living things around

us. Check out the full list

of invertebrates found at

http://naturewatch.org.

nz/projects/backyardbiodiversity-bugs-in-lincoln

ONE OF the larger and more

common moths that come to

light at night is the New Zealand

cutworm Graphania mutans.

It is one of at least 38 species in

the endemic genus Graphania.

The moth is variable in length,

15-19mm, markings and colour,

with forewings ranging from

grey, to browns and green.

Female moths lay 0.6mm

diameter eggs in batches of

between six and 200, usually in a

single layer.

Eggs are laid on a range of

plants including ryegrass, tussock,

magnolia, ecalyptus and apple.

MOTH: Graphania mutans, commonly known as the New

Zealand cutworm, is variable in length, 15-19mm, markings and

colour, with forewings ranging from grey, to browns and green. ​

Larvae emerge from eggs after

six to 12 days and will eat their

empty shell and often drop on

threads of silk to the ground to

feed on a wide variety of low

growing species.

Larva are mainly pale green

but have flecks of yellow, brown,

pink and black as they grow

in size. Their dark-coloured

breathing holes, called spiracles,

appear in a row above a white

lateral line on both sides of the

body.

Feeding stops a few days before

pupation when they usually go to

ground and eventually turn dark

brown.

ACTIVITIES:

Future Leader

scholars (from

left to right),

Dan Ryan, Paige

Harris, Phoebe

Topp, Rachael

Phillipson and

George Letham

with children

from Hororata

Primary School.

Promoting rural well-being

RURAL well-being was the

focus of a recent event at

Hororata Primary School.

A group of Lincoln University

Future Leader scholars ran a

series of activities which aimed

to bring children and their

families together.

The school hosted several

learning sessions relating to topics

such as technology, healthy eating

and being sun smart, which took

place alongside the scholars’ more

hands-on activities.

Future Leader scholar Paige

Harris said the pupils’ families

were invited to attend the event.

“The idea was to begin creating

habits that would make each

family unit stronger and encourage

them to appreciate the

simple things in life,” she said.

“We wanted to let rural

families know they shouldn’t

feel guilty about taking time

off, in spite of the busy period

at the moment with calving and

lambing.

“In fact, it’s important to

take time off in order to be

able to work to a high standard

throughout the whole season.”

The scholars’ message about

rural wellbeing also involved

ease of access to resources if

needed, with Farmstrong and

the Mental Health Foundation

providing supplies for some of

the activities.

Miss Harris said the event was

designed to align with five key

strategies for promoting physiological

well-being –‘be active’,

‘take notice’, ‘keep learning’,

‘give’, and ‘connect’.

Pupils made cards to give to

people they loved (which corresponded

to the strategies of

‘connect’ and ‘take notice’), participated

in a gumboot throw

(‘be active’), took a quiz (‘keep

learning’), and painted a picture

representing their idea of what

‘giving’ looked like.

Funding boost

for tourism assets

Council has received a significant financial injection from the Ministry of Business Innovation and

Employment for new tourism infrastructure.

Government’s Responsible Camping Working Group has awarded $230,000 from the Tourism

Infrastructure Fund for projects in Selwyn including new toilet facilities, signage, asset renovation

and data collection.

Council Chief Executive Officer David Ward says with the popularity of freedom camping

increasing, there’s a need for more facilities around the district to cope with the growing demand.

“We want to build on visitors’ experiences of enjoying our wonderful district, and this funding will

help us upgrade services in a number of areas around Selwyn,” Mr Ward says.

“We will be spending a substantial amount on new toilet facilities at Lake Selfe and Lake

Georgina, which will be welcomed by lake users.

“Some of the funding will also go towards signage, to help visitors understand what can and can’t

be done in these areas.”

Across Selwyn the Council directly manages four free camping sites. There’s also one commercial

site and three operated by local committees.

The new projects will be in place in time for the 2018/19 peak camping season.

Selwyn was one of more than 30 councils from around New Zealand which applied for financial

assistance from the fund.

Young skaters and scooter riders try out new

Lincoln skate park

Photo: Jake Harris (5) was a standout

skater at the Lincoln skate park opening.

About 100 skaters and scooter riders attended the official opening of the Lincoln

Domain Skate Park which was held last Sunday. The event, hosted by skating retailer

Cheapskates, had music, food, spot prizes skateboarding demonstrations and lessons on

skate park etiquette.

Are we on the right track?

Shaping future Selwyn

District Plan

Selwyn District Council has just kicked off initial public consultation

on key draft changes to the current District Plan.

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.

Environmental Services Manager Tim Harris says it’s important

that as many people as possible let the Council know whether the

review is on the right track.

The draft changes being considered in this consultation span across

22 different topics, which are grouped into four categories based on

where they occur and who they’re most likely to affect: Business,

Rural, Residential and District-wide.

“The rules in District Plan potentially affect everyone in Selwyn,”

says Tim. “The Plan controls the things you can do on your property

or your neighbour on theirs. It also controls, for example, what

activities are allowed to take place in different parts of the district.”

The Council wants to ensure that the new District 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.”

More information on the District Plan Review can be found at

www.selwyn.govt.nz/districtplanreview along with information on

the topics we’re currently consulting on, key draft changes and an

opportunity to fill in topic-specific surveys.

Anyone can give their feedback on the draft changes proposed.

Feedback can be provided online, at drop-in sessions during

August/September (see below), or by email or post. Feedback is

open until 5pm on Monday 8 October.

This consultation will help inform the new rules to be included in

the Proposed District Plan, which is expected to be notified for

formal public consultation in early 2020. The new District 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 District Plan.

‘Swim to Summer’ 10,000km

challenge is back on

Registrations are open now for Selwyn Aquatic Centre’s annual

swimathon event, ‘Swim to Summer’.

Following the success of last year’s event which raised $1630 for

The Breast Cancer and Prostate Cancer Foundations, the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre is again challenging Selwyn residents to swim or

aqua jog a combined total of 10,000km in pool lengths in the

lead-up to summer.

James Richmond, Aquatic Facilities Manager, says the aim of this

free event is to get more people active in the pool, more often.

“It was great seeing so many people smash their goals last year and

make huge improvements to their fitness and overall health.”

A number of prizes will be available for those who swim the most

laps, in categories for men, women and youth swimmers, as well as

most visits to the Centre during the swimathon.

The Swim to Summer swimathon will run until Saturday 1 December.

SELWYN TIMES

Pam Higgins

Taking care of West Melton kids

Pam Higgins has retired

after working at the

West Melton Playcentre

for more than 25 years.

She spoke to Georgia

O’Connor-Harding about

what she loved about

working with children,

her background in

sewing and why she

chose to live in the West

Melton countryside

instead of suburban

Christchurch

How did you come to be

involved with the West Melton

Playcentre?

It was actually a friend

who lives in the area that

introduced me. I didn’t really

know anything about it at that

time. We had actually had

babies practically a week or two

between us so she introduced me

to it.

Did all your children go to

the playcentre?

Yes, all three children. My

eldest Jason, we started at that

play-centre when he was about

two. At that time playcentres

were big. It was a big thing, all

these individual pre- schools,

these privately- owned pre -

-schools didn’t exist back then.

About 1992- 1993 was when we

started, when private pre -schools

didn’t really exist – there were

a few around but more in town.

So we joined the playcentre and

at that time it was completely

full. They had like 25 children

on every session. We actually

started as a little group of about

four or five of children just in

the afternoon. All my children

went to the playcentre right until

they were five. I suppose to start

with, I kind of got talked into

doing the playcentre education.

They have courses that you can

do, and back then you had to

complete four courses to get a

playcentre supervisor certificate.

I started doing that and I got

CHERISHED: Pam Higgins with her two-year-old bernese mountain dog Lacey and children at

the West Melton Playcentre.

hooked I suppose. I haven’t

actually supervised for 25 years.

I started supervising in 1998.

Before my youngest one Kyla was

born, I was supervising one day

a week before I took over the rest.

What made you stay there so

long?

I don’t know, I just enjoyed it. I

just enjoy spending time with the

younger children. I suppose that

is the reason why I am involved

in the West Melton Gymnastics

Club out here.

What was a normal day like

at the playcentre?

I have always been one to get

involved. If they are playing

pirates, they expect me to join

in. A lot of dramatic play goes

on. My passion is craft work. I

always like to see the craft side of

things – painting and gluing. I

support the kids and their master

pieces. I am always looking for

ideas of things they can do, but

also taking into account their age

and not expecting them to do

anything too intricate. It has got

to be based around their ability.

What would be your favourite

thing about working with

children?

I enjoy doing everything.

It is amazing. With some of

the children, if they have got a

particular interest, they get to

learn a lot about it. They will

get the dinosaurs out, they can

always tell me which dinosaur

is which, and what it likes to

eat. They teach me stuff. But it is

great when they have got a keen

interest in something because

then we can extend it more. The

thing that is really nice is when

you are out and about and the

kids recognise you. It is nice you

can stop and have a chat.

What was the send off for you

like?

It was really lovely. They put

on an afternoon at a community

hall and invited past playcentre

people to come along and they

put on an afternoon tea. They

had all the photo albums so

people could have a look and

find themselves. They made up

a lovely book for me. They went

back as far as they could to find

photos.

What will you be doing now

you have retired?

There is not going to be a lot

of spare time. I am going to be

looking after my grandson on

days I have free and am needed.

My son and daughter-in- law

are both working but they don’t

want to put the wee fellow in

day care. My daughter- in- law’s

parents look after them for a

couple of days.

Before you started working at

the playcentre, what were you

doing before that?

Back in the day, I had my own

sewing business and I used to

make leather and suede jackets

and tops and things like that. I

used to sell them to the tourist

market. I had a friend who was

helping me do sewing and things

like that as well. I probably

stopped doing that a couple of

years after I had my son Shaun

in 1994.

Have you always lived in

Selwyn?

No, my husband and I

moved out here when Jason

was 15-months-old. We lived

in Westhaven near Burwood in

Christchurch. I always wanted

to build in West Melton. I used

to work out in New Brighton

and used to travel that way to

go to work. I always said to my

husband I really wanted to have

a house in West Melton and he

would say we can’t afford it. But

we ended up managing to buy

a section out there and waited

for a couple of years and built.

Right from the word go I didn’t

like Burwood. I didn’t like the

suburban feeling of the houses

all around you. You sort of felt

like you couldn’t be anywhere

Your Local Views

We have got neighbours close

enough but you have got some

good people around you where

you don’t feel crammed in. It is

a great place for kids to grow up

in and having the space and the

animals all around.

Do you like the West Melton

community?

It is a good little community. I

have met a lot of people through

the playcentre and the gym club,

so it is good.

What do you like doing when

you have spare time?

I like watching television. I

do a little bit of knitting here

and there. Not a lot, usually

just mucking around sort of

thing. I have a lot of wool left

over from my sewing days. I get

enthusiastic and think I must

knit something with that. I tend

to end up knitting peggy squares

and joining them together to

make old blankets. I spend a lot

of time on the computer, too. I

have got a bernese mountain dog

called Lacey who is two -yearsold.

I take her to dog shows. That

is another passion of mine , dog

training, when I can find the

time.

It is more the breed shows I

take Lacey to, although I have

been to a couple of classes on

dog obedience. I am looking at

perhaps pursuing that in the

future. I have only got one more

show to go to get a certificate.

A reader responds to the

potholes on West Belt,

Lincoln, being fixed by

Christmas

Mike Green - Further

to your article regarding the

potholes in West Belt, Lincoln.

Unfortunately, Mr Young’s

statement that “if the road

had been in

Rolleston it

would have

been fixed

by now” is

not correct. I

reported to the

district council

on June 14

some potholes

outside

our house

in Dunns

Crossing Rd,

Rolleston, and asked if they

could be filled. These same

holes had been filled before, but

due to poor practice, they have

reappeared. After four weeks,

July 17 I noticed that some

similar potholes three houses

away from ours had been filled,

but sadly ours were ignored for

whatever reason. I again phoned

the council asking why some

holes had been filled but others

just a few metres away were

ignored. My request was added

again to the list.

To date (August 18, nearly

nine weeks on), we are still

waiting for any action to be

taken. I expect the council will

still want our rates paid so it can

maintain the roads in a suitable

condition.

I realise that the council has

far more important things to

deal with, such as extending

swimming pools and revising

town centre plans yet again. If

it can’t even complete the basic

repairs, what chance is there

of it getting the larger projects

carried out efficiently? Sadly,

I’m not holding my breath and

expect this

situation to

be an ongoing

annoyance for

the majority

of Selwyn and

Christchurch,

regardless of

how much our

rates increase.

Lincoln out of plate finals

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN Combined’s UC

Championship campaign is over

after a 20-17 loss to Shirley Boys’

High School in their plate semifinal

on Saturday.

Lincoln had beaten Shirley in

their round-robin fixture but

were not able to get the

win thanks largely to a flat

15min period before and after

half-time where they conceded

three tries.

Christchurch Boys’ High

School will play Christ’s College

in the competition’s final after

CBHS overcame Rangiora High

School 54-22 and Christ’s hung

on to beat St Bede’s College

24-23.

Coach Mike Wilson said

his team spent much of the

final 10min camped on the

Shirley Boys’ try line but

weren’t able to score a

match-winning try.

“We knew we needed a try

instead of a penalty goal because

in the event of a draw the

team with the most tries went

through,” Wilson said.

“We tried, but the Shirley

defence was pretty good.”

Wilson said he was pleased

with the effort of the team but

saddened they finished the

competition losing four games

in a row after being genuine

semi-final contenders.

“We played better because

we were up against a similar

school,” he said.

“The boys have certainly

the start of the season.

“To finish top half and be

the most successful Lincoln

school ever in terms of wins is

something that everyone in the

group is extremely happy with

and, hopefully, we can build on

it for next season.”

Canty Country undone

by defensive issues

• By Jacob Page

DEFENSIVE frailties and

new combinations merged to

undo Canterbury Country in

a 38-36 loss to Marlborough in

Blenheim.

Coach Nigel Smith said with

12 new players in the squad for

the first game of the season, it

took time to adjust to both attacking

and defensive patterns,

but he was confident the team

will be better for game two of

their South Island campaign

against Southland Country, in

Darfield, this Saturday.

“There were a lot of new faces

and at times we missed a few

links in our defensive systems

and too many gaps appeared,”

Smith said.

Canterbury Country were

leading with 5min to go but

elected to kick the ball back to

Marlborough from a kick-off and

they scored a few phases later.

Canterbury Country’s scrum

was initially so dominant, they

pushed Marlborough back 20m.

“After that, (Marlborough)

subbed their entire front row off

after 20min and while it helped

them, we still had dominance,”

he said.

Smith said the attack started

well in the first half but soon

cooled off and with defensive is-

Waihora’s key

Wednesday August 22 2018

SELWYN TIMES

Proud supporters of

Rugby & Netball in Selwyn

to success – inventiveness

Waihora’s senior rugby

team has enjoyed

unprecedented success

this season with a full

trophy cabinet that

includes the Combined

Country Trophy,

Ellesmere’s Coleman

Shield and the Murray

Cooper Shield. Sports

reporter Jacob Page

finds out how they

achieved it

WAIHORA CAPTAIN Ryan

Koning believes the foundations

the team’s all-conquering club

rugby run started with preseason

training on the polo

grounds near Tai Tapu and a few

beers afterwards in a shipping

container.

“We didn’t have changing

sheds or clubrooms at the start of

the year and the grounds weren’t

able to be trained on so we had

to get inventive,” he said.

“We had a lot of really enthusiastic

guys that just ripped into

it despite those challenges and it

really worked.”

Waihora won 18 of their 20

games this season on their

way to claiming the Combined

Country competition and Ellesmere’s

senior rugby crown, the

Coleman Shield.

Waihora co-coach Joff Mooar

admitted like many champion

teams they learnt the most from

their losses – and they experienced

one in their first game of

the season against Saracens.

“The team was so eager to get

going that we played like a team

would if they’d had 10 games

already,” he said.

“It just didn’t work.”

Koning described the loss as “a

good kick in the pants”.

That would turn out to be the

only blemish on a dominant

Combined Country campaign.

They wouldn’t taste defeat

again until late in the Coleman

Shield competition, thanks

to a lacklustre 21-19 defeat to

Prebbleton.

“I sat in the changing rooms

afterwards and a lot of heads

were down,” Koning said. “But

mine wasn’t. The way I looked

at it, that was the best thing that

could have happened to us after

we’d won for so long.”

Mooar agreed: “We played terribly

but only lost by two points

so in a way it was a good thing.”

Mooar was quick to heap

praise for the season on a man he

had seen more than his wife over

the past six months, fellow coach

Terry Dalton.

“Terry was someone who

brought a fresh perspective to

the team this year,” Mooar said.

“We had a division two team

for the first time and that meant

there was a group of 30 to 35

guys all training together and

pushing each other for positions.

“Terry also introduced video

analysis, which helped a lot of

the guys work on things after the

fact. The running joke amongst

our wives has been that we have

been like each other’s other wife

over the past six months.”

“Terry and I have no problem

expressing what we are seeing

on the field. While he takes the

forwards and defence and I take

the backs and attack, if we see

something that can help the

team, then we’ll speak up,” he

said.

“It works.”

Mooar praised two key players

in his backline for their ability to

adapt and thrive throughout the

campaign. First-five Jonty Stuart

and mid-fielder Matt Saunders

both filled vital holes in the

championship team.

“Jonty was new to the club,

and I thought we may have to

mix-and-match him and Matt at

times throughout the year, but

he piloted us so well around the

park all year and allowed us to

have Matt at centre dealing with

all the traffic.”

Koning said beating

Darfield on their home ground

to secure the Combined Country

and Coleman Shield double

was a great way to end the

season.

“The Darfield club are full of

great guys and their coaching

staff and overall hospitality is

superb and we knew that was

going to be a fitting final,” he

said.

Mooar said his team were now

the measuring stick their rivals

tried to match up to and they

were happy with that.

“The boys know that and

embrace it, “ he said. “They see it

as a challenge.”

Mooar said he was eager

to come back next year and

replicate his brother, Brad, who

has just won two Super Rugby

titles as an assistant coach with

the Crusaders.

“You always want to go one

better,” Mooar said.

“It’d be great to come back

next year and only lose one game

or none. That’s what we’ll be

aiming for.”

BROADFIELD A will have

the mental edge heading into

their Selwyn netball semi-final

against Lincoln A on Saturday.

In a prelude to the semi-final,

they beat Lincoln A 61-59 in

the final round-robin game on

Saturday at the Lincoln Event

Centre.

The win gave Broadfield A top

spot but also left Lincoln A, the

defending champions, in fourth

meaning the two teams will do it

all again this weekend,

Greenpark B and Greenpark A

will meet in the other semi-final

after Greenpark B beat Southbridge

A 50-46 and Greenpark A

humbled Rolleston A 80-32.

Broadfield A have beaten

Lincoln A two out of three times

this season, with two goals being

their biggest winning margin.

The other encounter ended in a

draw.

Broadfield A coach Yvonne

Crichton-Hill said while her

team lead for most of the game,

they did not make the most of

their turnovers.

“We would get a turnover and

then throw it straight back at

times,” she said.

“I think we got a bit excited.

The margins are tight so we will

need to make sure we look after

the ball.

Crichton-Hill praised her

team’s defensive rebounds.

Lincoln A coach Vanessa

Robinson described her side’s

performance as patchy.

“We didn’t put in the type of

performance we wanted over

four quarters,” she said.

“While our attack-end played

well, we didn’t grab enough

rebounds and that hurt us.”

Both teams have fully fit

squads to choose from with

United

striker nets

100 goals

for college

first XI

• By Jacob Page

SELWYN UNITED striker

Declan Hickford has become the

first person to score 100 goals for

the St Andrew’s College first XI.

The 17-year-old scored nine

goals on Thursday against

Rangiora High School during

St Andrew’s 12-1 victory in the

Canterbury schools premier

football competition.

The game lifted his goal total

to 102 for the school, which

included 43 goals this season.

“It feels amazing to have

achieved it. It’s such an honour,”

Hickford said.

“I remember my first goal for

St Andrew’s in my second game

so it’s been an amazing four

years.”

Hickford has also been a

regular in Canterbury agegroup

teams and is in his first

season with the Selwyn United

Mainland Premier League team.

“The physicality is clearly

something that takes time to

adjust to, but also matching that

with the speed of play,” he said.

“Sometimes the secondary

school games can be played at

a friendly-type pace and that’s

certainly not the case with the

MPL teams.”

Hickford said playing in the

MPL means he has more time

on the ball at secondary school

level.

“I’m working on my finishing

skills mostly because I have

more time on the ball than what

I would have in the MPL,” he

said.

next individual goal to be trying

to earn a scholarship to a United

States college.

It will be open daily and offer

The academy is a not-for-profit

organisation affiliated to Gymnastics

New Zealand.

President Ryan Jones said the

academy has signed a two-year

lease and the premises at the

hub on Izone Dr is a temporary

home, with a custom-built

facility close to Foster Park the

desired long-term option.

“I want children and families

to be able to access the facility

easily,” Mr Jones said.

“I want them to be able to walk

to it from home or come straight

from school, and a facility close

to Foster Park is the best way to

achieve that in the long-term.

We need to be realistic about

how long that might take so this

will give us time,” he said.

Mr Jones said he wanted the

entire community to use the

facility, regardless of age or

ability.

Creating your new home

When you are in the market for having

a new home built, but are not sure exactly

what you want, there’s nothing like visiting

a show home to get some ideas and start

bringing your dreams into focus.

Selwyn-based Artisan Homes has a very

attractive, three-bedroom show home

located at 566 East Maddison Road in the

Faringdon show home village in Rolleston.

Open Wednesday to Sunday from 12pm-

4pm, this thoughtfully conceived home

is an example of the high-quality design

and workmanship clients can expect

from Artisan Homes, while on-site

representatives will answer any questions

you may have.

“We cater for all types of new housing,

and we can build anywhere in Canterbury,”

director Robin Jones says. “We have a wide

range of house plans and we are also very

flexible, so when clients make the decision

to have their home built by Artisan they

can bring in their ideas and we will go

through those and come up with a design

to suit their site and budget.”

Trained by his carpenter father, Robin

has extensive experience in the building

industry – both domestic and commercial.

He established Artisan Homes in 2004,

and since then he and his team of builders

have delivered dozens of well-crafted

homes for satisfied clients throughout the

Selwyn District and further afield.

They offer a complete turn-key home

build if required, with all kitchen and

bathroom fittings, appliances, flooring,

and hard and soft landscaping provided.

“We design and build bespoke homes,

so while we often install Electrolux and

Bosch appliances, there is no restriction

on the brands clients can choose,” Robin

says.

Cladding materials used include plaster

brick, cedar, linear weatherboard and

schist, creating home exteriors with

individual style and character.

As affiliated members of the Master

Builders Association, Artisan Builders

guarantee their workmanship and provide

fixed price contracts. Clients pay a five

per cent deposit up front, and then staged

payments throughout the building process.

“These payments are frequent, which

means clients can easily keep up to date,”

Robin says.

Make more of your garden

with outdoor lighting

As the temperatures start to rise and the

evenings get longer, homeowners’ thoughts

turn from wanting to stay warm and cosy

inside to venturing outside and making use

of their outdoor areas for family relaxation.

Greg Horton of Juice Electrical says

people have the opportunity to get greater

enjoyment from their outdoors – even

as night falls, with strategically placed

outdoor lighting. And for that he suggests

LED lighting, as it is a lot easier and less

expensive to install because there’s no need

to dig trenches for wiring.

Greg also recommends having sensors

installed, so the lights come on as you move

around the area.

Juice Electrical has a range of LED

outdoor lighting, including up-lighting,

deck lighting and general purpose

floodlights, as well as security lighting, and

he and his team of qualified electricians

will advise on type and placement.

“We discuss the customers’ ideas with

them, show them photos of gardens

looking attractive with outdoor lighting

and make suggestions on how they can

make the most of their outdoor areas with

well-placed LED lighting,” Greg says.

In fact, LED lighting is fast becoming the

preferred option for indoor lighting as well,

Greg says.

“The technology has taken off and is

replacing halogen and incandescent bulbs

for the home. Low voltage LED (light

emitting diode) technology, has advanced

from being initially used in torches to being

suitable for lighting anywhere in the home,

and we highly recommend it.”

LED lights have a 20-year lifespan when

used for an average of 10 hours per day, so

are very cost-effective, he says.

Based in Rolleston, Juice Electrical has

been servicing the Selwyn District for

12 years, with Greg and his team of four

qualified electricians dedicated to the local

community.

“We are strong on maintenance, and

we do more than some other electrical

companies in repair and renovation work –

we pride ourselves on going the extra mile,”

Greg says. “We also provide full installation

for new builds.

“We advise anyone needing electrical

work to always use a Master Electrician.

That provides continuity of service and if

any problems arise, they will sort them out.”

So, next time you need any electrical

work done – repairs or installation – call

your local electricians at Juice Electrical,

phone 379 6644.

Get prepped for a stressfree

summer garden

Coming out of winter, a short burst of

effort makes a big difference before warmer

conditions boost garden growth. August is

the ideal month for setting up your garden to

minimise summer maintenance.

Restore balance with pruning and

removals

Pruning trees now, and removing dead,

damaged, or diseased plants, can help

rebalance your garden’s aesthetics. When

left unattended during spring, differences in

growth rates will put things out of balance

and prevent the growth of underlying shrubs

or ornamentals. Do your best to be vigilant

with weeds, plucking them out at the base

and collecting the roots.

Unlock your garden’s potential

A full garden tidy-up is a sure-fire way to

reveal your garden’s true potential. Discover

new areas of shade or plan a new deck to

create outdoor living areas for relaxing with

family and friends.

Rescue a forgotten lawn

If your lawn is looking tired or weedridden,

now is the time to act. By spraying,

cultivating and reseeding your lawn now,

you will give the new lawn the best chance

to spring back into life. You could also add in

pavers for access over worn areas.

Conserve water by topping up

compost

Building up your soil is an advantage

no matter where you are. However, with

Selwyn’s often stony soil, adding compost

is particularly helpful for minimising water

usage come summer. Composting is a bit

of a golden ticket, it helps with suppressing

weeds, moisture retention, and overall plant

health.

Prevention is better than a cure

Setting up your garden now will help

reduce ongoing maintenance requirements.

If it all sounds too much like hard work,

Revive Landscaping can take the weight off

your shoulders with an annual garden tidy

up or regular assisted maintenance, so you

can relax and enjoy more of what you love.

Ross and his team are skilled in all aspects

of landscaping including pruning, planting,

paving, and landscape construction.

Proven product extends

the life of your spouting

While most of us appreciate nature, the

dawn chorus can be a problem when we

are woken too early by the noise. But as

Rohan Rudd of Gumleaf Gutter Guard

points out, that’s not the only issue with

birds, especially in spring when they nest

in the spouting. The eggs and young chicks

attract vermin, which can then get inside

roof cavities, and rats and mice will chew

through wiring creating a fire hazard, he

says.

Gumleaf Gutter Guard is an effective way

of preventing birds from making nests in

the spouting, and perching on the spouting

and soiling walls and windows with their

droppings, while it also protects tank water

from being contaminated, ensuring the

safety and quality of the water supply.

Another key advantage of Gumleaf

Gutter Guard is that it prevents leaf litter

from gathering in the spouting.

“Leaf litter remains damp and acidic and

that wrecks the spouting,” Rohan says. “By

having Gumleaf Gutter Guard installed, the

life of the spouting is extended to the life of

the roof.”

Snow can also damage spouting, and

again Gumleaf Gutter Guard will protect

the spouting by spreading the load, Rohan

says.

Developed in Australia more than 20

years ago, Gumleaf Gutter Guard has been

providing a quality and effective solution

in New Zealand for the last decade, Rohan

says. Much of his work comes from repeat

business, with customers happy with both

the product quality and the service he

provides.

Customers requesting a quote will receive

it within 24 hours, and Rohan says he will

“go anywhere to provide a quote”.

He is also available Monday to Saturday

to speak to customers who call him.

“Even if I am working on a job, I will talk

to anyone who calls me,” he says.

Once a quote is accepted, the job is

started within 10 days, with installation on

an average-size house taking one to two

days. Rohan also does any necessary minor

repair jobs on the roof at the same time.

To discuss your requirements with

Gumleaf Gutter Guard, phone 0800 486

New garden centre offers

inspiration for spring planting

Stepping inside the new, purpose-built Garden

Centre at Southern Woods Nursery you will be

thrilled and inspired as you survey the vast selection

of beautiful, healthy plants, shrubs and trees – most

grown on the premises and all ready to be whisked

away and planted in people’s gardens.

This is the first spring for the garden centre, which is

the result of about nine months of hard work getting it

ready, marketing manager Rico Mannall says. He and

the almost 40 staff members at Southern Woods are

thrilled with the new Garden Centre, which was set up

as the retail arm of the well-established wholesaling

business.

Rico says as the days get warmer, spring is the ideal

time for new planting, and he notes there is certainly

plenty to choose from at Southern Woods. On display

is a wide selection of landscaping plants including

deciduous trees, hedging, natives, grasses and ground

cover, with the knowledgeable staff able to give free

advice on what plants are best for particular conditions

and sites.

“That’s the key part of what makes us different,” Rico

says “being able to help our customers with sound

advice so they get the best results. Our staff know

about plants.”

Southern Woods Garden Centre can also provide

on-site consultations and design landscape plans for

new sections, and will advise on soil preparation to

get the best results. Alternatively, you can take in your

plans and they will suggest what plants to use.

The Garden Centre also offers a full range of disease

and pest control products, as well as gardening tools

and accessories.

“We offer top-quality brands from Japan and

Germany, so our customers can be confident their

tools will last for many years,” Rico says.

Open seven days, Southern Woods Garden Centre

is located on the corner of Main South Road and

Robinsons Road, between Templeton and Rolleston.

It is well-signposted, and there is plenty of off-street

parking.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Weed cuisine from your backyard

FANCY a tangy wild pesto

made from weeds? This is just

one of the many ways you can

befriend common weeds that

like to take up residence in your

garden patches and flower beds.

In this day and age of

convenience shopping, weeds

are not plants most people would

consider eating on a regular

basis.

We have become wary of

anything that comes without

shrink wrap or a barcode.

However, wild green plants

(aka weeds) are still collected in

many countries, supplying major

sources of trace elements and

vitamins in the diet.

It is easy to forget that most

fruits and vegetables occur

somewhere naturally as weeds.

Every vegetable food cultivated

today was once a wild plant,

although most have been

‘improved’ beyond recognition.

Wild vegetables have specific

genetic qualities that tend to get

bred out during cultivation such

as resistance to disease, resilience

to climatic variations and longer

flowering seasons.

While the practice of foraging

for wild greens may not be

a component of your food

gathering strategies as yet, you

may be pleasantly surprised to

find that some of these healthgiving

plants are growing right

under your nose in your own

patch.

Time to head out to the garden

and scrutinise your weeds with

edibility in mind.

Instead of cursing those pesky

weeds, pick yourself a handful of

a wilder variety of greens.

Give them a vigorous rinse

under flowing tap water and whip

up a batch of pesto.

All edible wild greens are very

high in chlorophyll.

Chlorophyll is rich in

digestive enzymes, which

can assist in the digestion of

heavier foods like starches and

proteins.

It is best to consume these

plants fresh as cooking destroys

these enzymes.

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.

15 months

INTEREST FREE

Normal lending criteria apply

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

Boutique retirement

village almost complete

Construction on the first stage of the

Boulevard Village in Rolleston is nearing

completion, with villas expected to be ready

for occupancy by next month.

The only one of its kind in Rolleston,

Boulevard Village is owned and operated by

Dean and Karen Harris, who have over 30

years’ industry experience and are known for

providing exceptional service in village, rest

home and hospital-level care.

Grant England owner of GE Construction,

which is building the village, is a shareholder,

along with Trish and Tony Palmer, who have

many years’ experience owning and running a

hospital and rest home.

Karen says they are all thrilled with the way

the village is taking shape.

“It has been a long journey, and as the first

stage nears completion it is becoming very

exciting. The outside areas will be stunning.

Sean from Design2 has done a great job with

the landscape plan allowing plenty of outdoor

areas around the villas. This is not seen in

many villages so is a great asset. Grant has

made the build process easy and has been

very adaptable with residents’ individual

requests,” Karen says.

“We are always open to suggestions where

we can adapt, and this is something that

only a smaller village can do. Grant believes

there is an enormous need for a village of

this kind in Rolleston. Since starting work, his

team continues to get people stopping to ask

how they can secure a villa, which is really

great. I’ll be ensuring the build is to a very

high standard so the village is future-proofed

going forward, while the different villa designs

provide a point of difference,” Grant says.

People viewing Boulevard Village recently

were impressed that there were footpaths

for people to walk on and villas not looking

identical, Karen says.

“They were also very impressed that we

provide all drapes, heat pump, microwave,

fridge, electric fire, television and washing

machine and dryer. I think residents should

be able to just move in and have everything

ready to go. Having to sort out heating and

drapes, putting up televisions, trying to fit

existing fridges, washing machines and

dryers, is not the pressure you want when

moving.”

Each villa will have its own iPad to keep up

to date with what is happening in the village.

It will also control the security system for the

villa, call alarm and gate access.

Garden and external maintenance

like window cleaning, lawn mowing and

gardening will all be taken care of, along with

rates and insurance payments ensuring a

relaxed enjoyable life, Karen says.

The Boulevard will have 54 two-bedroom

villas and five three-bedroom villas, 40 one

and two-bedroom apartments, 20 care suites,

and 58 hospital rest home and dementia

beds, and a large community lodge with

dining and lounge areas, meeting/small

function room, bar and café, beautician/

therapy clinic, gym, library, computer nook

and outdoor sheltered courtyard.

There will also be a men’s shed, raised

planter beds, a small putting green, a swim

spa and a barbeque area around the lodge.

The Boulevard is located at 200 Dunns

Crossing Road and is surrounded by quality

homes. The village is a five-minute drive from

Rolleston’s shopping centre and handy to

Faringdon’s South Point.

Check out the website for opening hours

for the site office and show villa.

The Boulevard village will have:

• 54 two-bedroom villas • Five three-bedroom villas

• 40 single bedroom apartments • 40 two-bedroom apartments

• 20 care suites • 58 hospital rest home and dementia beds

and much more!

LiMiTed viLLaS In OUr neXT TWO STageS

Our three bedroom villas have been in great demand and only one not under contract. In

response to that we are now making OUR SHoW THree BedrooM viLLa avaiLaBLe.

This will be open for viewing at the weekend and while the landscaping is being completed

it will be by appointment through the week.

“We have recently had a TWo BedrooM viLLa, which was under contract, become

available and I know that will not be that way for long” says Karen. It is in a prime spot with

extensive gardens and full sunshine.

I will be in the site office through the week now and happy to talk to you about what will be

available in the next stages which will be six two bedroom and two three bedroom villas.

A pleasure to be working alongside Karen & Dean of The Boulevard Retirement Village

Well-planned village offers

many benefits

Recognising there is a lot of talk about retirement

villages in comparison with housing designed for the

over-60s, Karen Harris, owner/operator of Boulevard

Village in Rolleston says she believes there are places

to meet everyone’s needs and financial positions in

Rolleston.

“Choice is so important,” she says. “We are

attracting people who are looking for something

different from the norm and they recognise the longterm

benefits of a boutique village like ours.

“However, as my heart is fully in this industry I

would support any person to make the right decision

for them, which means I will not downplay or promote

one village over another. It comes down to choice and

lifestyle options. One model does not suit all.

“The Boulevard, like most retirement villages, is

regulated by the Retirement Villages Act and coming

into a village like ours means you will always have

your villa, other buildings and grounds maintained to

a high standard, which will attract people for years to

come. This is not your responsibility to organise and

it is covered under the conditions of the Occupation

Right Agreement.

“We believe that being a boutique village we are

appealing to people who appreciate quality and will

enjoy living in a village that has been well planned to

meet needs now and in the future. Having that full

continuum of care is very important.

“We have also found that many people are

delighted The Boulevard will allow them to live

closer to their family in a safe, secure and worryfree

environment, while having the opportunity to

socialise, make friends and enjoy outings and social

events,” Karen says.

Interest in the village remains strong, and there

is not a weekend where she does not have people

coming through to discuss their options, Karen says.

Recently, the Boulveard held an information

afternoon where a lawyer and statutory supervisor

were available to explain the legal aspect of coming

into a village.

“There are a lot of misconceptions out there and

this allowed interested people to hear the facts and

the benefits of living in a retirement village. It is all

very transparent and offers a lot of advantages over

unregulated villages,” Karen says.

The next seminar, which will be on Enduring Power

of Attorney, will be held in October, with the date and

time to be posted on the website,

www.boulevardvillage.co.nz. All are welcome.

The Boulevard is located at 200 Dunns Crossing

Road, Rolleston.

Live closer to your family in a safe, secure and worry-free environment, while having the

opportunity to socialise, make friends and enjoy outings and social events.

BouLevard viLLage

garden plan

choose an outdoor environment

which appeals to you

If you want the best of both worlds then the Boulevard Village will

suit you well. Landscaping will allow for your own space surrounded

by extensive lawn and garden areas adding that extra living space

and privacy.

The street frontage adds further green areas with planted mounds

to add to the garden like entrance. “We wanted to look like any other

subdivision and not a village within enclosed fences. We can still

provide security with gates which can be locked at night and security

cameras placed strategically around the village, as feeling safe and

secure ticked a lot of the box’s with residents coming into the village”

We have planned different themes around the village to allow you

to choose the outdoor environment which appeals to you. Sun is

foremost and there will be different meeting areas around the village

connected by foot paths, sitting areas and communal letter boxes.

What do I need to

know when selling

for the first time?

People are often so focused on what

it takes to buy a property that the

thought of selling it never occurs to

them. Home ownership is embedded in

New Zealanders’ DNA, but most people

experience changes in their lifestyle, family

circumstances or work situation that will

make them want – or need – to move on.

Whatever your reasons, it’s important to

take the time to think about what you

want to achieve from the sale before you

start the process.

“Many people find it hard to be objective

about their first home and this can have an

impact on decision making when it comes

to sale time,” says Kevin Lampen-Smith,

chief executive of the Real Estate Authority

(REA).

“In this situation it can be helpful to look

at it as an investment from which you want

to get the best possible return.”

A good way to start the process is to get

an idea of the property’s current market

value – either by using online tools, paying

for a registered valuation or getting a

current market appraisal (CMA) from a

licensed real estate agent.

While friends and family make good

sounding-boards, you can’t beat the advice

and guidance you’ll get from trained,

experienced professionals. Depending

on your needs and the type of property

you’re selling, your support team is likely

to include a lawyer or conveyancer, along

with possibly a valuer, an accountant (if

you have used the property for business

purposes) and an insurer or lender. The

other key figure for most Kiwi home

sellers is a licensed real estate agent.

“More than 90 per cent of residential

properties in New Zealand are sold by

licensed real estate agents, who work for

the seller in return for a commission that’s

usually based on a percentage of the sale

price,” Lampen-Smith says.

“It’s important to choose your agent

well – remember that you are trusting

them with what’s likely to be your

biggest financial asset. Ask around for

recommendations in your area and feel

free to ‘interview’ a few before you make

your final decision. Don’t forget that you

can negotiate with them on the costs and

the range of the service they will provide

you – talk to experienced friends or

family or your lawyer if you’re not

sure how to do this. Some will

provide the full suite of services

for you, others will require you to

run your own open homes. You

generally pay for what you get,

you just need to decide what you

want.”

Some people rush into selling a

property without thinking what costs

are involved because they’re dazzled

by the thought of a nice big cheque

at the end. Talk to your bank or lender

about what to expect – you may need to

spend money on preparing the physical

property for sale as well as paying legal

fees, marketing and moving expenses. Talk

to the real estate agent before embarking

on any renovations as they will be able to

tell you what buyers in your area expect.

Have you thought about where you’ll

live when the property is sold? Could you

cope if a buyer wanted a short settlement

date and you had to move out sooner than

expected? These are all things to consider

before you start the process. There’s more

information at www.settled.govt.nz.

Lampen-Smith says it’s also crucial to

remember your obligations as a seller.

“Whether you sell with an agent or

privately, you must be upfront about

any issues or information that could be

relevant to a buyer,” he says.

Is there a gang house next door? Are

there any signs of watertightness issues? Is

there a stream at the back of the property

that threatens to inundate the house after

a lot of rain? Do you have the necessary

consents and compliance documents for

any work that was done? If you’re not sure

what to disclose, talk to your lawyer.

“The best rule of thumb is to

imagine yourself in the shoes of a

potential buyer and think how you

would feel if you discovered the seller had

not been entirely truthful,” Lampen-Smith

says.

“If that’s not enough motivation,

consider that a buyer may have the right

to cancel the sale or renegotiate a reduced

price if you have misrepresented anything

to them. They may even be able to take

you to court and claim damages.”

Selling a property can be stressful,

but it doesn’t have to be life-destroying.

Be thoughtful about your decisionmaking,

seek advice from the experts and

remember why you’re moving on.

selling property, check out settled.govt.nz.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Your quick guide to KiwiSaver

for first homebuyers

So you’ve decided to get into the housing market and buy your first home using your KiwiSaver savings.

The first thing you need to know is

the amount you have accumulated in

your KiwiSaver account, the amount you

personally have available and the amount a

bank is willing to lend you. All this before

you even start looking for a property to

purchase!

People you’ll need to talk to:

KiwiSaver manager, solicitor, mortgage

broker or your bank manager, real estate

agent.

Are you eligible? You will need to

have been a KiwiSaver member for at

least three years before you qualify to use

your KiwiSaver savings for a first home,

plus you will also need to have enough

so you can leave $1000 in your KiwiSaver

account. You will also need a letter that

confirms your eligibility to make a first

home withdrawal from your KiwiSaver

manager. KiwiSaver first home withdrawals

are only available for homes or land in New

Zealand and cannot be used for investment

properties.

You are also required to live in the house

you build or purchase with these funds.

Pre-approval Once you have your

eligibility letter, you can then discuss

with your mortgage broker, or bank

manager, the amount you would like to

spend on purchasing your first home.

You will also need to discuss the amount

you will need for a deposit – usually 10-

20% of the purchase price, depending on

your situation. You can use part of your

KiwiSaver funds to pay the deposit, but

there is a limit of $7000. You will also need

to advise your real estate sales agent that

the KiwiSaver deposit will not be paid

over until the property goes unconditional

and will be paid directly to the vendor’s

solicitor.

Government help To qualify for

a HomeStart Grant from Housing

New Zealand, you need to have been

a KiwiSaver member for three years,

18 years or over, and have a household

income (before tax) of less than $85,000

per year (for one person) or less than

$130,000 (two or more people).

The amount you can apply for

depends on the number of

years you have contributed

to KiwiSaver, and whether

you are buying an existing

home or building a new

one, however, there is

a limit. For an existing

home, you can receive a

grant of $1000 for each

year you have been a

contributing member

with a maximum of

$5000. For a new build,

you can receive a grant of

$2000 for each year you have

been a contributing member

with a limit of $10,000. You will

need to give Housing New Zealand plenty

of time to process your application.

House or land? You can use your

KiwiSaver to buy an existing house, or you

can use it to purchase property that you

plan to build on. However, you cannot

use the funds for building supplies or

contractors.

Buying a home with your partner

or spouse If neither of you have

previously owned a house, then you can

pool your KiwiSaver savings together. You

will each need to contact your providers

and make your applications for your first

home withdrawal independently.

Legal help Once you have found

the property you want to purchase,

your solicitor can provide you with the

necessary forms and documents, and guide

you through the legalities of the purchasing

process. Your solicitor will also co-ordinate

the release of your KiwiSaver funds.

If in doubt, ask for help and talk to your professionals

so you fully understand the process of purchasing

your first home with KiwiSaver. For more detailed

information visit: www.kiwisaver.govt.nz.
