Fulton

Hogan

to meet

residents

over

quarry

• By Anan Zaki

FULTON HOGAN officials

will front up in Templeton

for the first time next week to

discuss their quarry proposal.

Since first announcing

the 170ha quarry plan for

Templeton and Weedons last

year, the company has not held

public meetings in Templeton.

Fulton Hogan is planning a

series of information evenings

from November 6-8 in a

marquee next to the Templeton

Community Centre.

There will also be a session

at the drop-in centre at the

proposed quarry site, 220 Jones

Rd, on Monday.

Residents can hear the latest

information relating to the

quarry proposal and discuss

concerns with Fulton Hogan’s

technical experts.

Templeton Residents’

Association chairman Garry

Kilday welcomed the move but

called for more. “I would’ve

preferred the way we wanted

it, if the whole community is

engaged.” he said.

get in touch

from the editor’s desk

LINCOLN’S BJORN Horrack will get a

taste of boxing’s big time when he fights on

the Joseph Parker-Alexander Flores undercard

in December.

The 29-year-old, who we feature in

today’s paper, will fight another Cantabrian

Quintin Poole, who is 30kg heavier than him, in a corporate

bout.

This will be a big night for Horrack at Horncastle Arena

where there will be all of the trappings for a name as big a

Parker’s in world boxing.

A world title hopeful Parker still is, as he attempts to wind his

way back into contention after losing to Anthony Joshua and

Dillian Whyte.

Poole will be no Joshua or Whyte, but it’ll still seem like a

major title fight in front of what will be a big crowd.

Springfield water races examined

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SPRINGFIELD’S water

race infrastructure has been

inspected after concerns over the

flooding and cleaning of culverts

in the area.

The district council carried out

an examination of water races,

culverts and tip out points this

month after the issue was raised

It follows an event in February

when heavy rain caused the

water race to overflow, resulting

in flooding of the nearby area.

The district council is investigating

Dr Smith’s suggestions

and will report back at the next

Committee chairman Graeme

Dawson said he was pleased the

district council was looking at

the issue.

“They have got a responsibility

and they are obviously taking it

reasonably seriously so that is all

Mr Dawson said the concerns

come after the heavy rain across

led to blockages of the water

races causing minor flooding.

But he said in the last 20 years,

the district council has really got

Why is Selwyn growing faster than

Figures released last week

by Statistics NZ show

Selwyn is the second

fastest growing district

in New Zealand. So what

makes it a desirable place

to live? Emily O’Connell

reports

AFFORDABLE land, a familyfriendly

environment, excellent

infrastructure, great road and

rail links for business and

stunning natural landscapes.

That’s what Mayor Sam

Broughton

believes Selwyn

has to offer.

He’s not

surprised to see

its population

has kept growing,

with the latest

Sam figures estimating

Broughton more than 62,000

people reside in

the district – up

4.8 per cent from

last year.

Population

estimates from

Statistics NZ

have confirmed

Ben Harris Selwyn as the

third-largest

territorial authority in the South

Island.

Bayleys Canterbury’s Ben

Harris believes there is a

“multitude of reasons” people

are moving out to Selwyn and

Lincoln in particular.

He’s the lead agent for

Verdeco Park – a new residential

subdivision in Lincoln.

Mr Harris said Lincoln has

easy access to Christchurch,

multiple amenities, good

schooling, a wide array of cafes,

restaurants and bars and is a

“good healthy environment to

bring up families.”

So what is being done to cater

for the growing population?

District council community

relations manager Denise

Kidd said it understands the

population has changed and it

has worked to provide key assets

to the community.

“Like the Selwyn Aquatic

Centre, community and

event centres, libraries, which

also host a range of events,

sporting grounds and dozens

of playgrounds around Selwyn

featuring a range of interactive

play areas,” she said.

Ms Kidd said it also works to

provide programmes, such as

CONSTRUCT:

New

subdivisions

across the

district like

this one in

Rolleston will

help cater

for the area’s

growing

population.

KidsFest, Boost and CultureFest,

to engage the community and

provide entertainment for a wide

range of local residents.

Mr Broughton said there has

been a significant number of

international arrivals in Selwyn,

with more than 300 becoming

citizens over the last year.

In the year to June, the district

council issued 2458 building

consents, only slightly lower

than the previous year.

Mr Harris said the median

house price in Selwyn last

month was $550,000, up from

September last year when it was

$535,000. “Selwyn’s average

house price . . . is the highest in

the wider Canterbury region

with Waimakariri‘s average

house price being $453,000,

closely followed by Christchurch

city on $452,500 for the

month of September 2018,” he

said.

Within the district, Mr Harris

said the median house price

tends to be higher in Lincoln,

followed by Rolleston and then

Darfield.

“The median house increase,

particularly in Lincoln and

Rolleston, is being driven by

new home builds in the area that

attract obviously a higher price,”

he said.

Mr Harris said there were 71

properties sold in Selwyn last

month, up from 69 in September

last year. With just under 80,000

people expected to live in Selwyn

by 2028, he says the population

will need somewhere to live,

“hence the growing number of

residential developments.”

The recently released updated

draft Greater Christchurch

Settlement Pattern will go out for

public consultation tomorrow

until November 30 after being

approved by the Greater

Christchurch Partnership

Committee.

The report predicts the

population of Selwyn,

Waimakariri and

Christchurch will increase

by 150,000 in the next 30

years.

The update includes a

focus on how urban areas

accommodate growth

and how infrastructure

planning supports

development.

It said 20 per cent of

greater Christchurch’s

housing growth through to

2048 should be supported

in Selwyn, with the

remaining 65 per cent in

Christchurch and 15 per

cent in Waimakariri.

It comes after the 2007

urban development

strategy forecasted 29 per

cent of growth would be

split between Selwyn and

Waimakariri.

However, that was before

the two districts flourished

as residents moved out of

the city after the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

Selwyn’s economy is on

a strong growth curve. The

district’s gross domestic

product for the year to

cent – nearly double the

Lynn Townsend

New Zealand average of 2.7

per cent, and well ahead of

the Canterbury regional

figure of 2.5 per cent.

But Lincoln Hammer

Hardware owner Lynn

Townsend said he’s “not

so sure Selwyn businesses

are reaping or getting the

benefit of that growth.”

“It would seem to me

they’re [residents] still

buying in the city or

somewhere. I don’t think

the growth in businesses in

Selwyn necessarily reflects

the growth in housing and

population,” he said.

Looking to the future,

Mr Townsend said

it’s “possible” Selwyn

businesses will see more

of the benefits as more

businesses move to the

district.

The report revealed

there are questions around

whether there is enough

development capacity in

Selwyn and Waimakariri

to meet the demand in the

long term.

The projected shortfalls

are 7575 developments

in Selwyn and 9170 in

Waimakariri.

“Our plan seeks to

ensure that sufficient

housing capacity is

provided in both Selwyn

and Waimakariri to enable

growth in district towns,”

the report said.

It proposed new

greenfield housing areas

should be released in

places like Rolleston to

help address the shortfalls.

to get brand awareness for

women in the group and local

awareness for our businesses,”

said Mrs McQueen.

“Most of us don’t have shop

fronts or really a good way to get

a local presence, so this gives us

an opportunity to create that.”

For Mrs Boyd it was also about

taking care of fellow female

business owners.

“I’ve always believed it’s

important for women to

support women in business. In

this group, we come together

and share ideas and we’re able

to promote our business and

encourage each other,” she says.

For the first few months,

it was just the pair meeting

regularly, then once the local

grapevine gathered momentum,

the membership grew with

12 regular members now

attending. The group includes

an interior designer, a stylist,

real estate agents, a lawyer and

an accountant. The group meets

regularly and Mrs McQueen

admits they usually spend the

first 20min catching up.

The support is paramount, as

many of the women work from

home which can be isolating and

lonely. The group allows them to

have contact with like-minded

entrepreneurs and also helps

with marketing.

The word-of-mouth referral

system is imperative for each

member, says Mrs Boyd.

“It works so much better than

putting an ad on Facebook,” she

says.

“Word-of-mouth and referrals

is our best place to go to for a lot

of our businesses.”

So far there have been

regular monthly meetings that

sometimes include speakers. Mrs

McQueen says each owner is also

able to give a brief introduction

about their business.

“It’s really important that we

get to know each business and

trust that when we are referring

clients, that we know they are

going to be looked after.”

Community is also at the

forefront of a lot of what they do.

The business owners have also

run two highly-successful night

markets where the proceeds

from the raffles were donated

to local charities. Last week a

more things in the community.

Things continually develop, with

every meeting we get ideas. One

thing I do know is it is going to

also been an added bonus.

Our People

SELWYN TIMES

Rebecca Scott

Passion for teaching key to booming

Rebecca Scott is the

manager and owner

of Selwyn’s awardwinning

Busy Bumbles.

Thousands of children

attend the before,

after school and

holiday programme.

The Rolleston

resident spoke to

Georgia O’Connor-

Harding about

why she set up the

programme and how

she wanted to be a

teacher since she was

five-years-old

How did Busy Bumbles first

come about?

I set it up nearly nine years

ago. I had been teaching nearly

13 years and then I had my first

child in 2006. I had about three

months off and my husband

is a policeman so he got paid

parental leave as well. That was

good so he stayed home too. But

when I took my child into child

care, although the place he went

was absolutely fantastic, I still

had the “mummy guilt” if you

like, about being at work and not

being a stay at home mum. I just

remember feeling really disappointed

that parents have this

guilt. There are a lot of parents

and mums out there who, like

me, absolutely love working.

My hat goes off to stay at home

mums, but it is not me. We are

made to feel quite guilty about

being at work and it doesn’t help

when your children are upset

and what not about being in

child care. I thought what can

we do so parents don’t feel guilty.

I had this dream of creating a

place where kids wanted to be

and they nagged their parents

to be able to be there and then

I knew that parents wouldn’t

feel guilty about being at work

because their child was having

fun wherever they were.

How do you come up with

the ideas you have for your

children?

I am actually really lucky. Lisa,

who works at the office, does

all our planning. She spends

a whole entire term planning

our holiday programme and

also our term activities because

we have daily activities and

weekly activities as well. She is

absolutely skilled at it. We spend

a whole term doing it and that

is because it is really important

to me that what we create is fun

and interesting and entertaining

and children love it.

Is there one activity your

team has come up with that has

been an absolute favourite?

Anything to do with food.

Children love baking days or

creating things out of food. That

is always a hit so we usually

have some sort of food day just

about every holiday on a different

topic. Some might be about

making animals out of food.

How has the programme

changed since you first started

out?

It was really difficult nine

years ago. What happened

was my husband and I were in

Auckland and then we had two

children. He is born and bred in

Lincoln and we wanted to come

back down to be closer to family

with our children. We made the

tough decision, I would move

down here with a new born and

a two-year-old. He had been in

the police and it took him nine

months to transfer down here.

In that nine months I had the

children and I was setting up the

business. I walked into Rolleston

School and Andrew Morrall,

the principal then, believed in

everything I was saying and

really liked what my values and

vision were. He agreed to have us

on site and we began there with

our first venue. There are now

thousands of children on our

books with ten different venues

and 58 different staff so it has

grown massively which is just

fantastic.

What are your key values for

the programme?

Safety is obviously very

important, that is our number

one priority. Fun, happy

and we like to call it a little

bit crazy and by that we just

mean exciting and fun. My

staff aren’t just coming into

work and sitting there on their

phones while kids muck around

with a box of blocks. They

are actually interacting with

them and enjoying each other’s

company and helping them with

homework.

Tell about your recent success

at the Selwyn Awards 2018.

This was our first year

applying for the Selwyn Awards

and we won that one which was

fantastic. It was also our first

year being nominated for the

Westpac Champion Awards

2018. To get be a finalist for that,

I couldn’t believe it and to be

surrounded with the CEO of

Christchurch Airport and other

businesses. The Westpac awards

were pretty fancy but to win the

Selwyn Award that is awesome

because that is us. That is the

community we are looking after

and it made me so proud. We

also came runner up in people’s

choice at the Selwyn Awards too.

BIG SUCCESS: Busy Bumbles manager Rebecca Scott (centre)

and her team were the winner of the Selwyn Business Award

earlier this year.

You mentioned you wanted to

be a teacher since you were five

years old. Tell me about what

brought that about?

I think it probably had a

little bit to do with my little

sister. I just loved being a big

sister, she was so good. I would

sit down and play “teachers” with

her. She was lovely. Her friends

had little sisters as well. As I got

older we played real pretend

schools and I had them reading

and writing. There was absolutely

no doubt in my mind, I 100 per

cent knew I was going to be a

teacher.

How did you meet your

husband?

We have been together 20

years. He was a bouncer at The

Cook in Dunedin. I am born and

bred Dunedin so he was down

there as a bouncer before he went

to police college. We have been

married 10 or 11 years now. He is

born and bred Lincoln, he went

to Springston School where we

have one of our venues at which

is quite nice. We have got that

connection with Busy Bumbles

right back from when he was

at school. My children are 11

and nine, they are at Clearview

100%

CapItal GaIn

to the ResIDent

School.

What do you like to do in

spare time?

Busy Bumbles only closes for

two weeks in the entire year and I

go camping. I love camping and I

love drinking wine.

What is your favourite place to

go to and what is your favourite

wine?

Waikuku Beach is where we have

gone for years. It has got a

family feel and we know everyone

there. I like pinot gris wine -

anywhere from Central Otago is

the best.

What do you think of living in

Selwyn?

One hundred and fifty per

cent the best place in the world.

I absolutely love it. I love the

people, I love the culture. There

are so many businesses opening

up in Selwyn. So many successful

businesses. When I was at the

Westpac Champion Awards 2018

there were five or six businesses

represented there from Selwyn

and that says a lot and I am

forever meeting people who

are really inspirational, really

determined and just go getters.

It is a really friendly, lovely, safe

place.

Liffey Springs gate to go

• By Emily O’Connell

A GATE that stops the public

from accessing a sealed

walkway at Lincoln’s Liffey

Springs will eventually be

removed.

A Broadfield Estates

spokesman said the locked

gate at the end of Russ

Drive is there because the

walkway is currently private

property. Broadfield Estates

is the developer behind Liffey

Springs.

The spokesman said once the

final part of the subdivision is

sold, the gate will be removed

and the public will have access

to it. However, he was unsure

when this will happen.

working through that,” he said.

Payne Court resident Janet

James is frustrated with being

unable to use the walkway and

has to find alternative routes

for her daily walks.

Mrs James said there is

a stone pathway which the

public can use instead, but she

wouldn’t walk it alone as

she’s not “that steady on her

Guided

tour of

Lakeside

hall on

Armistice

Day

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A GUIDED tour of the Lakeside

Soldiers Memorial Hall will be

held as part of the Armistice Day

commemorations.

The tour of the newly

completed hall will follow the

district council’s Armistice Day

service at Lakeside on November

11.

The district council has

organised a commemoration

ceremony with a marquee to be

set up at the car park of the hall

on Harts Rd.

About 200 people, including

representatives from the

Ellesmere RSA and New Zealand

Army, are expected to attend.

Construction of the new hall,

dedicated to commemorating

Lakeside men who lost their lives

in the Boer War, World War 1

and World War 2, will officially

be completed on November 9.

An official opening is planned

for February 1.

Hall committee chairman

Dennis Carter said the hall will

be a huge asset for the greater

district and will make an

excellent wedding venue.

“It is a very cool building, very

smart building,” he said.

The facility includes a multipurpose

hall, a courtyard,

kitchen and bar, storage and

bathrooms.

The original hall was damaged

beyond repair in the September

4, 2010, earthquake.

The public will need to

assemble at 10.30am for the

11am service.

LINCOLN-BASED

boxer Bjorn Horrack will

trade the roof for a ring

to be on the under-card

for Joseph Parker’s bout

against American-Mexican

Alexander Flores at

Horncastle Arena.

The 29-year-old is a

roofer by trade but has

competed in boxing,

kickboxing and mixed

21.

On December 15, he will

and Fitness Centre in

Christchurch.

Horrack will compete in

a corporate bout consisting

of three 2min rounds.

is a bit of fun,” he said. “I’ll

so it’ll be great to be out

there.”

a caring

community

facility

advertorial

“We are thrilled to finally be open,” says Boulevard village

owner/operator Karen Harris. “it’s been a long journey, but

we’re happy to be here.”

Stage one of the village is complete with just one threebedroom

villa still available for purchase out of the nine

available. Karen says now is the perfect time to secure a

two bedroom villa in the future stages & have a choice of

position and a say in the décor.

Karen says the village is now fully registered, so

applications can be taken for future villas and that way you

can be sure you will not miss out.

Karen hopes that the local rolleston community will see

the village as a community hub where people can come

together and make use of the facilities available.

“From day one, i want people to know we’re here in a

caring capacity and not just as a retirement village.”

Plans are now in the early stages for a full care facility,

which includes a hospital, rest home, dementia unit and

apartments.

She also adds, “We are the only one in the area and one

of few non-corporatised retirement villages in New Zealand.

We’re not a cookie cutter facility, we offer a variety of villa

designs, we’re more boutique but with a homely feel.”

Boulevard village residents ann Butts and Kay lethaby are excited to be in their

new villas and look forward to meeting new residents and neighbours as each

stage is completed.

new residents

Boulevard villa owners ann Butts and Kay lethaby are

excited about being the first residents in the village.

Kay says that from the start she loved the open and

sunny style of the villas. She also enjoyed being able to

choose the décor including colours, drapes and carpet.

Moving into her villa was an easy choice, as she wanted

to stay in the area and continue being part of the wider

community.

“Karen was really good, helping to choose the drapes,

and going out of her way to make sure we got what we

wanted right down to the extra touches to make it feel like

home.”

ann says she wanted to stay in rolleston too and when

the opportunity to purchase in Boulevard village came up,

she says it was ideal.

Both like the spacious layout of the village, with its wide

streets, communal gardens, and the feeling of community

that will come as each stage is completed.

Kay and ann are also eagerly anticipating the new

community centre, which will offer a beautician room, gym,

swim spa, café, bar, theatre and barbecue area along with

a small putting green and mini men’s shed and community

vege gardens. in the mean time we have a temporary

meeting area with a large lounge, bar and television and

there will be an outdoor sitting area with raised planter

box’s.

“We’ll have a choice,” says Kay, “we can either stay at

home or step out the door and meet someone our own

age.”

another bonus is the onsite care and maintenance.

“We’ll be able to go away and not have to worry about the

gardens,” says ann, “it’ll all be done for us!”

the Boulevard is located at 200 dunns Crossing road

and is surrounded by quality homes. the village is a fiveminute

drive from rolleston’s shopping centre and handy to

Faringdon’s South Point.

Selwyn Times

Selwyn’s population at

62,200 and growing

It’s official – Selwyn is confirmed as the third-largest territorial authority in the South Island.

Provisional population estimates released last week by Stats NZ show the district’s population at

30 June 2018 was estimated at 62,200 – an increase of 4.8 percent from the June 2017 figure of

59,300.

The latest figures show Selwyn’s growth has pulled clear of Waimakariri (60,700) and now sits

behind only Christchurch and Dunedin among South Island councils.

Stats NZ confirms that Selwyn has been the second fastest-growing district in New Zealand, with

only Queenstown-Lakes district (5.5 percent) growing at a faster rate.

Selwyn mayor Sam Broughton says the latest data continues a long-term trend of sustained

growth for the district.

“It’s not a surprise that we keep seeing our population growing,” he says. “The district has a host

of advantages that make our district attractive.

“We can offer land at affordable prices, a family-friendly environment, excellent infrastructure,

great road and rail links for business – and of course, some of the most stunning natural

landscapes in the world, right on our back doorstep.

“These factors are attracting families from around New Zealand and the world, along with

businesses that are establishing or relocating in our

townships and business zones.”

South Island population –

territorial authorities

The population figures are backed up by the Council’s

own residential growth data. In the year to June 2018 the

Council issued 2,458 building consents, only slightly lower

than the previous year, and new residential subdivisions are

continuing to develop.

Selwyn’s economy is also on a strong growth curve. The

district’s gross domestic product (GDP) for the year to June

2018 increased by 5.3% during the year – nearly double the

New Zealand average of 2.7 percent, and well ahead of the

Canterbury regional figure of 2.5%.

“Growth has been good for us and Selwyn is in a fortunate

position, but growth and change are not easy or cheap,”

Mayor Broughton says. “As a council we continue to plan

and focus on delivering quality infrastructure and services at

affordable levels for our community.’

There are a number of reasons why our waste management contractors may not have collected your

bin. If your bin was not collected, a tag may have been attached to it explaining why.

Some reasons why your bin may not have been collected are:

· the lid was not shut flat or the bin was overflowing

· the bin was contaminated (eg non-recyclable items in the recycling bin or plastic in the organics bin)

or contained liquid or hazardous waste

· the bins were not registered to your property

· the bin was put out on the wrong week for recycling

· the bin or bag was too heavy and over the weight restrictions.

· the bin or bag was not put out on time

· the bin was not correctly presented at the kerbside.

If you think your bin was missed please contact us on 347 2800 or by filling out an online helpline form

at selwyn.govt.nz/contact-us. Please provide the serial number on the side of your bin.

We are experiencing huge growth in organics volumes right now and this is causing our collection

trucks to take a little bit longer to complete all collections so if your bins are still full leave them out for a

short while before contacting us as our team may still be on their way.

For further information you can go to selwyn.govt.nz/bin-not-collected.

Property revaluations in your

letterbox soon

If you own property in Selwyn you will receive an updated rateable

value for your property in the post by mid-November.

The new valuations, assessed by Quotable Value (QV) on behalf of

the Council, will be used to help calculate the Council’s rates next

year – they will not affect your rates until the year starting 1 July 2019.

Here are some key things to note:

· The new capital value reflects the likely selling price if the property

had been sold on 1 July 2018.

· Revaluation doesn’t mean the Council collects any more money

from rates, but it helps us work out everyone’s share of rates,

which is partly based on capital value.

· Even if the value of your property has increased, it doesn’t mean

your rates will rise by the same amount.

For most residential properties in Selwyn, only around a quarter of

their rates bill is based on capital value, with the majority set based

on a fixed amount per property, such as for library services.

The average increase in capital value across Selwyn was 6.7%

(an average of all capital value changes for residential, rural and

business land). This means property owners whose capital value

increased more than the average for Selwyn can expect a slightly

higher than average rate increase from 1 July 2019. Property

owners whose capital value increase was less than the average can

expect a slightly lower than average rates change next year.

Property owners also have the opportunity to object to the valuation

if they choose to – these must be lodged by 20 December 2018.

More information will be included with your revaluation notice, or

visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/revaluation.

War memorial lighting

As part of WW1 Centenary and Armistice commemorations, the

Council has installed feature lighting at war memorial sites in

townships across Selwyn.

The lights, which were installed at nine memorial sites at a cost of

$137,000, provide for white or coloured lighting of the memorials,

depending on the wishes of the community.

Council Property and Commercial Manager Douglas Marshall says

as well as highlighting the memorials, the lights also allow the sites to

support other important community events and commemorations.

“The installation of the lights is a fitting way to mark the centenary of

the armistice and remember the sacrifice of the citizen-soldiers and

nurses who went to war to defend the nation’s interests,” he says.

To date lighting has been installed at:

· Tai Tapu (Rhodes Park Domain Gates of Remembrance)

· Leeston Cenotaph

· Springston War Memorial

· Hororata War Memorial

· Rolleston Memorial Clock Tower

· Darfield War Memorial

· Dunsandel War Memorial

· Prebbleton War memorial

· Sheffield War Memorial.

Lighting will be installed at other war memorials in the district in

the future.

Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall commemoration

A formal commemoration to mark the centenary of Armistice Day

will be held at Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall, outside the hall, as

the building is due to be completed in late November.

Sunday 11 November 2018

8am: Flag raising

10.30 am: Assemble (not later than)

Southbrook maintain top spot in country cricket

• By Jacob Page

SOUTHBROOK’S bowlers

ensured they would remain

at the top of the Canterbury

Country premier one-day

competition after a comfortable

five-wicket win over Weedons

on Saturday.

Southbrook made the most

of a bowler-friendly pitch at

Weedons Domain to skittle the

hosts for just 70.

Olly Heweston-Brown was the

main destroyer taking 4/12.

Southbrook had their issues

chasing down the target and

were in trouble at 34/5 before

Alex Simpson steadied the run

chase with 19 not out.

In other matches, Darfield

did well to scramble to 154 after

being asked to bat by Kaiapoi at

Darfield Domain.

Nick Johnston’s 50, and 37

from Sean Carston, provided the

backbone of the innings.

Tim Oram, Justin Gourlie

SPORTS

and Wayne Bell each took three

wickets for Kaiapoi.

Bell was the hero with the

bat, scoring 40 and combining

with Caleb Greaves (30) to see

Kaiapoi home with three wickets

in hand for their first win of the

season.

Leeston-Southbridge had little

trouble chasing down Oxford

Rangiora’s total of 93.

Wicketkeeper Joel Harden’s

30 and 24 from former Dutch

international Tim Gruijters saw

the hosts home with four wickets

and 25 overs to spare.

Cheviot opener Ted Whelan’s

79 proved match-defining

against Sefton. He was the main

contributor in Cheviot’s 139 all

out. Sefton looked to be in control

of the game at 45/2 but

then faltered to be all out for

103.

On Saturday, Kaiapoi will host

Weedons, Oxford will welcome

Darfield, Leeston-Southbridge

will travel to play Sefton and

Southbrook will await Cheviot.

•Points table after four

rounds: Southbrook

West Melton

gymnast takes

first national title

• By Jacob Page

WEST MELTON’S Sarah

Quinn has become a national

champion for the first time in

rhythmic gymnastics after a

stellar competition

at Tauranga.

The 16-year-old,

who goes to Villa

Maria College and

trains at Bishopdale’s

Delta Rhythmic

Gymnastics Club,

was named the

overall national

champion at level

nine.

Sarah won the

ribbon and ball

was third in the

clubs, with her

consistency across

national title.

years ago just to try it out and

has not looked back.

She trained for more than

15 hours a week in the lead-up

to the competition and was

delighted with the overall result.

She said she

always enjoyed

competing with the

clubs.

“I always enjoyed

learning new

routines with

them and it was

something I learnt

quickly,” she

said.

Sarah said she

always looks

forward to training

but it was the

friends she has

made that had kept

her competing and

active in the sport.

She said she was

keen to try for a

level 10 title next

year at nationals to

add another golden moment to

her rhythmic gymnastics CV.

Lincoln Combined hunt

for new first XV coach

• By Jacob Page

THE LINCOLN Combined first

XV rugby team will be looking

for a new coach for their UC

Championship campaign next

year.

Mike Wilson, who has been in

charge for the past two seasons

and took the team to their best

ever finish this year, said family

commitments won out.

“I’ve got a young daughter at

home and coaching a team in

the UC Championship needs a

total commitment and I guess

spending time with my young

family was the main motivation

behind the decision,” he said.

“It was always my intention to

re-assess things after two years.”

Lincoln Combined were top

four contenders for much of

this season before fading late to

finish seventh with an eight-win,

seven loss record.

Wilson said he believed it

was the right decision to make

with six months to go until the

next season. “We’ve obviously

improved a lot over the past two

years but I believe this squad

of boys has the ability to go

further,” he said.

“They’re all really engaged and

willing to learn.”

Wilson said he was not

sure who could be a frontrunner

to take over the job

but was adamant it was a great

opportunity for a coach wanting

to take the next step in their

development. •More sport, p23

Auto Electrical

needs sorted in Selwyn

When the nor’wester is blowing or

the sun baking hot, we want our air

conditioning system to be functioning

as it should. It is therefore worth

having it checked before the hot days of

summer are here.

In Rolleston’s commercial precinct,

you will find Newlands Auto Electrical.

Whether it is servicing your air

conditioning, setting up or maintaining

a radio communication system for

a commercial or personal vehicle,

replacing lights or a battery, the team at

Newlands Auto Electrical can help.

They also sell a wide range of

automotive electrical products,

communications equipment, power

tools, hand tools, and windscreen

wiper blades, along with batteries and

LED lights. They can assist with 4WD

light bars; directional or standard rear

lighting for brakes and indicators for

most vehicle and trailer makes and

models; camper, caravan, bus and larger

vehicle courtesy LED lighting; and

agricultural machinery LED lighting.

If what you are seeking is not in

stock, the team at Newlands will be

only too happy to source it for you,

endeavouring to have it in store within

a day or overnight. They will even

deliver to you if close to Rolleston.

All fittings stocked are of a high

quality like Hella and Narva, and with

Newland’s direct buying power their

prices are extremely competitive. In

particularly Newlands have their own

brand of long-lasting, reliable LED

lighting products fitted with Philips

brand parts.

Not sure about your battery, not a

problem. Call into Newlands where they

have the latest top-of-the-line digital

battery testing technology. They will

safely test your battery in a few minutes,

without the need to disconnect it.

Even in summer, we need our wiper

blades to be working well yet that is a

job we sometimes don’t get around to.

Newlands can supply and fit new wipers,

improving visibility when driving and

ensuring you and your family are safe

when driving in the rain.

With a history of over 80 years’

in business in Canterbury, it is not

surprising that the team at Newlands

Auto Electrical have the expertise and

experience to do the job right. Their

line-up includes electrical technicians,

a radio communications engineer, and

help with fast and efficient service.

in the popularity of motocross and

Cameron returning to the sport once

more. As a veteran racer (over 35 years),

he won the Syd Harrison Memorial

More recently he has been racing two

Yamahas, an YZF250 and 450.

Over the years, Cameron has built

up a collection of classic motorcycles.

These include a 1990 Kawasaki KX500,

1987 Kawasaki KX250, 1983 Maico

PETS & PAWS

Remember the fifth of November

Keep your pets inside and safe on Guy Fawkes night!

With Guy Fawkes Day fast approaching,

it’s time to think about your pets. If your

pet was particularly frightened last year or

has a loud noise phobia, now is the time to

put a plan in place that will keep both you

and your pet happy and stress-free.

Animals and

fireworks don’t mix

Each year SPCAs throughout New

Zealand receive hundreds of calls relating

to fireworks during the festive season

from October to January. Animals are

either injured, frightened, go missing or

sometimes abused at this time of year.

While New Zealand has a strict window of

three days from November 2 to November

5 for purchasing fireworks, it has no set

day for fireworks to be used. People can set

fireworks off before, during and after Guy

Fawkes Day.

For some pets this can be absolute

torture, sending them into states of fear and

anxiety every time they hear a loud noise.

Sending your pets off to a quiet cattery or

kennel facility in the country may also be

another option around this stressful time.

SPCAs top tips for animals

and fireworks

• Never let fireworks off close to animals.

• Stay home with your pet

• Keep pets indoors, so they won’t see the

flashes and the bangs will be muffled. Turn

up the volume on your radio or TV to help

drown out loud bangs with familiar sounds.

• Make sure that your cat or dog has

somewhere comforting to hide such as an

igloo, box, crate or somewhere they feel

safe to retreat to.

• Try a compression wrap for dogs, like a

thunder shirt.

• Exercise your dog early in the day

to avoid being out during dusk when

fireworks could be set off.

• Make sure your cats and dogs are

microchipped and have a collar and

identification tag with your contact details

on it, should your pet panic and run away.

• Comfort your pet. Try to behave calmly

and reassuringly. Take special care of

elderly or nervous pets.

• Never punish your pets when they are

scared. This will only make their fear and

stress levels worse.

• Don’t forget small pets like rabbits,

guinea pigs or chickens. Have them tucked

away or even inside for the night.

pets during this noisy time of the year,

All hands on deck for summer planting

With summer just around

the corner, it’s all hands on

deck to ensure a steady

harvest throughout the

summer months. Get those

heat-loving crops in the

ground ahead of the warm,

long days to come

BEFORE ANY of the following

crops can be planted, the soil

needs to be well nourished and

dug over. If the ground is dry,

it will need a good watering

before any crops go in. Blend

in soil conditioners, such as

sheep pellets and well-matured

compost, or a bit of both, then

add a dusting of vegetable

fertiliser and you are good to

grow.

Tomatoes

By now, if you have been

growing your own plants from

seed, the plants should be at a

size where they are ready for

transplanting into the garden.

Aim for seedings to be at least

10cm tall, however they can

three or four times that size too.

Position them in a sunny spot

away from any blustery winds,

and plant them deeply in the

soil. And don’t forget to stake

the plants – this is important

if you want a bumper crop, as

the stems can easily break with

the weight of the fruit and can

be damaged by wind. If room

is tight, and space is limited,

grafted tomatoes produce a

larger and more reliable crop on

one plant.

‘Big Boss’ is a new variety this

year. It is a beefsteak variety,

only grows to 1m tall and

produces loads of large fruit

that are about 0.5kg each. With

superb flavour and reliable

cropping ability, look out for

it and ask for it by name at

Oderings.

Eggplant

Plants will be in all the garden

centres now, so if you missed

sowing seeds, don’t panic. Plant

one to two plants per person in

the household. Eggplants need a

long, hot summer to thrive, so if

you live in a spot that hasn’t fully

warmed up yet, you can hold off

planting them out for another

month. They are an ideal crop

for large tubs and bins, just

ensure they have good drainage

as they hate wet feet. Be aware

that they are not a fast-growing

crop, and they do take a few

weeks to settle in before they

start actively growing.

Both grafted and seedling

hybrids are available in the

shops. Seed catalogues have a

huge selection of varieties and

it isn’t too late to sow seed – if

the plants are in the ground by

Christmas you will be fine.

‘Golden egg’ is a neat golfball-sized

yellow variety and one

of the best larger ones is ‘black

moon’.

Cucumber

Now the ground temperatures

are warm, and the coldest nights

are all but over, cucumbers can

be planted out. You still have

time to sow seeds, too – these

germinate in about one week,

and are ready to plant out within

a month. For the best results,

telegraph cucumbers do best in

a glasshouse or in a sheltered

spot in the garden. As they

begin to grow, the long tendrillike

branches scramble. Where

possible, tie these branches up to

keep the developing fruit off the

ground as this will ensure even

ripening. However, if the fruit

get too heavy on the vine and

move about in the wind they can

snap off, so, in areas where wind

protection is not guaranteed, it

is best to leave cucumber to trail

along the ground – a few pale

patches on the bottom side of a

cucumber is better than nothing.

A reliable smooth-skinned

telegraph variety is ‘english

greengrocer’ (see kings seeds).

Apple cucumbers are neat, with

their pale creamy white flesh

and skin, and for those who

enjoy the smaller, more intensely

flavoured cucumbers look for

the Lebanese types. These are

ideal for growing along the

ground.

Kūmara

For gardeners who live in cold

regions, apologies, but kūmara

won’t easily grow for you – they

require a long, hot season.

Bundles of cuttings are in

the shops now and should be

planted in well-prepared and

dug-over soil, on mounds,

roughly 30–50cm apart. The

plants take a few weeks to settle

in and, by Christmas,

the plants will be actively

growing, almost like triffids,

if the conditions are ideal. Water

as required when the soil dries

out. Harvest should be done

before the frosts arrive as the

crop needs to cure in the sun

before they can be stored. This

process toughens the skin,

which enables kūmara to be

stored in a dry, cool place for up

to six months.

7.86HA LIFESTYLE STARTS HERE!

NEW LISTING

PRICES VALLEY

2890 Christchurch Akaroa Road

Raise your family with the lifestyle you always dreamed

of: wide open paddocks, friendly chooks, pony rides,

character building farm chores and making huts. Enjoy

the warmer months outdoors in the beautiful gardens,

firing up the BBQ; stay snug in the winter with the wood

burner on wetback and large conservatory trapping the

daytime warmth. A perfectly placed spa pool on the

deck lets you marvel at the night sky all year round.

The solid construction of the 2+ bedroom cottage is

reinforced by new roofing, wiring and piling from its

relocation in the 1990's. More recent improvements

include an updated bathroom with wet room shower.

Whilst the cottage has been lovingly maintained, just

think of what could be created when you take

advantage of the lead lighting, built-in cabinets and

gorgeous wood panelling!

Is this your dream realised? Not many lifestyle properties

are set up to be so diverse in their offering and remain

an affordable option.

Presenting your home for sale?

The presentation of your home

doesn’t mean spending thousands

on an upgrade either! So why

wouldn’t you want to do everything

possible to make it appealing to

prospective purchasers?

Street appeal

The exterior of your home is the first

thing buyers will see, so the property

needs to look well-kept and inviting. Take

a look at your place from the street and

see it through a buyer’s eyes. So, cut the

lawns, trim trees, plants and hedges, add

some garden lights and place a nice pot or

plant by the front door. Ensure the house

exterior is cleaned or freshened with new

paint if necessary, hose down drives, paths

and fences, put stylish new numbers on

the house and perhaps buy a funky new

letter box!

Make an entrance

Even if your entrance or hallway is

small, you can still give it some wow! A

large mirror adds light and makes an

entrance look twice the size. Fresh flowers,

candles or a stylish piece of art create an

inviting first impression. Ensure floors are

clean whether timber, tiles or carpet.

Create space

Light, air and space are three key

factors in presenting a home to the

best advantage. Open up curtains

and windows and use lamps and light

fittings for mood and ambience. Arrange

furniture to maximise space and remove

items that make the room appear

cramped.

Fresh feel

Freshen rooms with new paint if

necessary, but aim for neutral tones which

are more versatile for buyers. Add a splash

of colour in cushions, throws, artwork or

a vase of flowers. Invest in a new duvet or

bedspread and always make the bed!

Clear out clutter

Storage space sells but clutter

complicates! Clean out your cupboards,

shelves and garage, and get rid of

unnecessary clutter. Buyers inspect

wardrobes and cupboards so tidy them up

and reduce the number of photos, books,

nicknacks on display – they distract

buyers, too!

Beautify the bathroom

Replace or resurface fittings if necessary,

but otherwise you can simply beautify

your bathroom with thorough and

fastidious cleaning, thick opulent towels,

a tray of beautiful soaps and some lush,

green plants. Invest in a new shower

curtain or laundry hamper, and maybe a

sleek, modern towel rail.

Clean clean clean

Cleaning is a mandatory part of

selling your home: have carpets, rugs

and upholstery commercially cleaned

and sanitised, clean drapes and blinds to

look like new, polish glass and furniture,

wash down all surfaces and fittings in

the bathroom and kitchen, clean all light

fittings, wash windows inside and out,

deodorise your home to eliminate any

odours from pets, cooking or smoke.

Outdoor spaces

Even a small patio, deck or terrace

can be enhanced with a café table and

chairs. Add some colourful accessories –

placemats, candle lamps, pots and plants,

and there you have an extra living area.

If space is not limited, hang a hammock,

string some outdoor lights, position a

garden sculpture or create a water feature

that buyers will love.

Hire a handyman

Squeaking doors, dripping taps, cracked

tiles, broken fences, leaking toilets or

appliances that don’t work are a turn-off

for buyers. If you can’t repair or replace

things yourself, then hire a handyman to

make sure everything in your home works

as it should.

Finish it first

Buyers want to see a finished home,

not one that’s still being fixed! So finish

everything before you list your home

for sale, then launch it onto the market

when it looks its absolute best – you have

nothing to lose and everything to gain!

The New Zealand tenancy

space has seen more

change in the last 18 months

than in the last 18 years

combined - and more is

on the way.

RENT

EVENT

The Rent Event is designed to help landlords and

investors across New Zealand understand these

changes and how they may impact your tenancy.

Looking for a property – what really counts?

You are in the market for a new

property, scrolling the Internet,

examining properties for sale and

zeroing in on those with potential. They

might be in locations that offer cheaper

land, larger houses, or convenience to

work or school.

You may have visited show homes

and open homes becoming confused,

overwhelmed or swept away with

emotional factors like having

everything new, or extra features such

as three car garaging.

To be happy with your choice, list the

features that you need, considering:

• Family space – Is there room for

the children to play indoors and for

television and entertainment units?

Should this be open plan or separated?

• Kitchen – What needs to be in

your kitchen? How serious are you

about a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim

or something that offers a practical

solution to the way you use your

kitchen?

• Bedroom sizes – What are optimum

sizes? Smaller bedrooms may translate

to slightly lower building costs while

extra space can be useful. When

looking at existing homes, consider

whether the size of each bedroom is

sufficient.

• Garaging – A standard double

garage once two cars are parked there

offers little space for the toys. What

toys do you have and could they live

with the lawnmower in a garden shed,

a cheaper option to three car garaging?

If the budget allows and a larger garage

with workshop is important, make it a

selection priority.

• Size of land – Lifestyle properties

offer space for children, pets, hobbies,

jll.co.nz

an expansive garden and perhaps a

home-run business but they require

work so are not for everyone and a

compact section might be more sensible

if a tight budget or busy lifestyle.

• Bathrooms – Second and third

bathrooms are great in homes with

teenagers and a wet shower room is

ideal for young children. A bath might

be fashionable though is often not used

and its absence could mean a more

spacious bathroom.

• Laundry – Would a laundry in the

garage do the job?

• Storage – How much storage do

you need? Weigh up what can truly be

stored in the garage once vehicles are

in, a preference in winter. Garages vary

in size so check the size to ensure your

vehicles will fit. Look also at where

else the house offers storage capacity

such as in hall cupboards, a large hot

water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes

(check their width and depth), walkin

robe, attic storage trusses, as well as

the potential for hooks and shelving

in the garage for bikes, tools, garden

equipment and even kayaks.

• Off-street parking – How many

vehicles can be parked on the driveway?

Will this space be sufficient?

• Garden - Is there sufficient space

for your children to play or for

entertaining?

A checklist will allow you to determine

what will suit your needs, the point of

the exercise, saving you time looking at

properties or potential house designs

while assisting you to decide whether

to buy a new or existing home with

both options having advantages and

disadvantages.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Taking a

smart approach

to building

Being organised, aids a

smooth build whether

engaging a building

company or overseeing

the project yourself.

Start by finding a building site. Its

orientation to sun and prevailing winds

should determine your house design so

the sun’s free energy is capitalised on

and you have sunny sheltered spots for

outdoor living.

Choosing your design and building

company may go hand in hand, where

the latter’s consultant works with you to

determine the best plan for your section,

lifestyle and family needs.

Alternatively, you might employ an

architect or architectural draughtsman.

While it may cost a little more for house

plans drawn up for building consent

and maybe lodged by your professional,

it allows you freedom to work with a

smaller builder or oversee your own

project. Ensure all tradespeople are

licensed building practitioners (a

building consent requirement).

Before building starts, determine all

building materials and fixtures (some

will be required to be stated for building

consent). Many housing companies take

their clients through these decisions

before commencing building. Changes

made once building is underway

are likely to incur extra charges and

even budget overruns, especially if

tradespeople return to the job.

If working with a smaller builder,

you may have more time to choose the

kitchen design, kitchen appliances and

paint colours. Working through these

decisions early on however ensures time

to weigh-up options rather than a rushed

choice.

Try making a list of the fixtures and

fittings to be decided on, such as the

type and colour of the exterior cladding,

roof, aluminium joinery, front door

and garage door. List the bathroom

and toilet products required then visit

plumbing suppliers to get ideas for

vanities, bath, showers, taps, bath spout

and the like. If having a walk-in shower,

consider whether you want a glass door

and the number of shower heads. Write

down the brands and product numbers

you like and obtain prices to allow

differentiation between the options.

Meeting your plumber on site is also a

good idea so placement of taps and the

like can be discussed.

Most electricians do a walk-through

with clients to determine where power

points, lights and electronic fittings will

be positioned. Think about how each

room will be used and furniture might

be placed, remembering it is more

affordable to include these while the

house is under construction than retrofit

later. Mark your ideas on a copy of the

plan ahead of time.

Collect paint charts and purchase test

pots of colours you like then paint large

pieces of cardboard to get an idea of

their effect. Visit showhomes too, asking

about their colour schemes.

Planning ahead will help take stress

out of the building process.

Building blocks

to a new home

As Cantabrians continue to move forward, when building

a new home, here’s a reminder to pay attention to some of

the fine details...

Anyone intending to build a new home

should have the builder’s contract

checked out by an experienced lawyer.

A payment schedule can also

minimise financial risks. Issues that

you may have to deal with include:

the deposit, guarantees and warranties

If you want to compare building

companies, it’s important to get down

to finer details such as how many

power points there are per room, the

type of windows you are having or

which paint finishes are included.

Questions to ask

builders include:

• Do you have a completion guarantee

and how does it work?

• Is there a loss of deposit

guarantee?

• Is the company a

Registered Master Builder

and does it use thirdparty

written guarantees?

• What is the schedule for

payments?

• How are the deposit and

progress payments

administered?

• Are they held in a solicitor’s trust

fund?

• Will the master franchisor complete

the build if the franchisee goes out

of business

• What are the exact specs?

• Are the prices fixed?

• What is excluded from the build?

• Are there any restrictions on

driveways or any other connections?

• Can you speak with clients who

have just completed a build?

Do your homework before you decide

on a building company and you will

have a less stressful time once the

building process starts.
