Council

to step

back

from

social

housing

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SOCIAL HOUSING across Selwyn

will no longer be directly provided

by the district council.

Instead, it will advocate for social

housing by working with housing

providers, Government agencies

and the private sector to deliver

services in the district.

It comes after several submissions

were made in the Long Term

Plan 2018-2028 calling for the

district council to invest or provide

social housing.

The district council’s decision

not to provide social housing was

made last week after a report was

presented at its public meeting.

The key reason behind the decision

is the district council does not

view social housing as part of its

core business. The report said the

primary responsibility of social

housing in Selwyn lies with central

Government.

The report said the benefits from

the district council deciding to

advocate for social housing instead

of providing, meant minimal

financial costs to council and

ratepayers. •Turn to page 4

In Brief

MAHOE RESERVE FIRES

A 28-year-old man has been

charged in relation to four fires at

Mahoe Reserve in Lincoln over the

past month. Sergeant Phil Bayne

said covert cameras were installed

in the reserve and a member of the

public was able to identify the man

responsible. He said the fires damaged

shrubs and trees. The man

will appear in the Christchurch

District Court on December 13.

FOSTER PARK DESIGN

The district council has approved

a design-build approach for the

procurement of a contractor for

the $21 million Foster Park indoor

sports project. The facility will

incorporate both a multi-court

indoor complex and a sports hub,

featuring changing rooms and

storage space. The approach will

involve expressions of interest;

selecting companies to develop a

basic concept design; and selecting

a preferred concept/contractor.

Advocacy role in

social housing

Pat

McEvedy

•From page 1

The district council currently

provides a small pool of social

housing in Darfield with three old

houses on North Tce. These have

historically been provided at low

market rents. It also provides a

house in Hororata

at below-market

rent to a trust that

looks after disadvantaged

children.

District councillor

John Morten

said the decision

probably fits in

with his philosophy of social

housing not being the district

council’s core business.

“I am not a great supporter of

social housing but I am certainly

not against council advocating

for groups in the community who

may possibly be providers or possibly

council being involved if it

had land available,” he said.

Cr Morten said the important

thing is the district council hasn’t

walked away and it is happy to

work with community groups.

District councillor Pat McEvedy

said he was comfortable with the

decision.

He said it has a role of advocating

on behalf of community

development for funding and

social housing providers which

want to set up in the district.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Hall repairs to go out for tender

• By Emily O’Connell

John Morten

REPAIRS TO the earthquake

damaged Sheffield Community

Hall have taken another step

forward.

The district council has approved

for tender negotiations to

take place and for the project to

proceed.

The hall, which is now owned

by the district council, was discussed

at its meeting last week.

A recommendation

to

put the seismic

strengthening

process

on hold so a

further assessment

could be

done was not

adopted by the

district council.

District councillor John

Morten advocated for the project

to continue without another

assessment, so Sheffield residents

didn’t have to wait longer for the

hall to be repaired.

“I moved an amendment,

which then was passed, that

basically instructed the staff to go

ahead and negotiate with the best

tenderer and get on and proceed

with the project,” he said.

The budget for the project was

originally $289,000 but the cost

to undertake it is now assessed

at $606,417.

Cr Morten said he “assumed”

the difference will be covered as

per the funding plan from the

initial report.

The plan included using unspent

money from the Springston

and Ladbrooks community halls

repairs as well as money from the

district seismic budget.

Some district councillors

had concerns over the $317,417

increase.

District councillor Mark Alexander

said it was “unfortunate”

and “not ideal.”

He said if the original budget

was $600,000 there would have

been a lot less support for it than

there was.

Cr Alexander supported the

recommendation to put the

seismic strengthening project on

hold while another assessment

was done.

Supporting his views, district

councillor Grant Miller said

they “clearly” need to stop and

think about it.

“Once you start getting to

those numbers, you’re not far

from a point where you go well

actually, are we better to repair

an old building . . . or should

REPAIRS: The

Community

Hall, in spite of a

recommendation

to put it on hold.

we actually stop and consider

ourselves here, what is best for

Sheffield in the future?” he said.

Sheffield-Waddington Community

Committee chairwoman

Val McKenzie said it was a “great

result.”

Former mayor Bill Woods, who

has been involved with the issue,

is also pleased with the outcome.

“The quicker we can get the

hall operating properly, the

better is it for the hall because

we’re losing so many customers

now,” he said.

Cr Alexander and Cr

Miller voted against the

amendment.

‘Emergency use’

chlorine gear

under discussion

• By Emily O’Connell

CHLORINATION equipment

could be installed at Rolleston,

Darfield, Arthur’s Pass, Upper

Selwyn Huts, and Lake Coleridge

as a preventative measure.

The district council’s audit and

risk sub-committee discussed the

issue at its meeting on Wednesday,

where it passed several recommendations

including one to install

the necessary infrastructure as

prioritised.

Its recommendations will go to

the district council next month to

be approved.

Sub-committee chairman Grant

Miller said the equipment would

be installed for “emergency use.”

“It’s there if there is a health outbreak,

we can have facilities ready

and we can turn it on and chlorinate

the water until such time as the

water supply is safe again.” he said.

Other recommendations included

permanently chlorinating the

Arthur’s Pass and Upper Selwyn

Huts water supplies, receiving the

Water Supply Chlorination – A Risk

Based Approach report, continuing

to review and update the chlorine

risk matrix and continuing to chlorinate

supplies which are already

chlorinated.

Further concerns over shed

• By Karen Pasco

Kerry Pauling

A SHED on State Highway

73 which has the potential to

“cut someone in half,” is still

standing as the Springfield

township committee don’t want

to appear heavy-handed.

Concerns about the shed,

near the corner of Pocock Rd

and SH73, were highlighted at

a Malvern Community Board

meeting.

Malvern

Community

Board chairman

Kerry

Pauling said

the owner,

who was approached

by

a member of

the Springfield Township committee

last year, told them she

wanted to repair it. However, no

further repairs had been made.

“We’re not really going to

push the issue too hard. We

don’t want the township committee

to alienate themselves as

doing something to force the

issue much,” Mr Pauling said.

When asked if public safety

was more important than alienating

the committee, Mr Pauling

said the committee could

offer to help tidy up the shed

and get rid of the loose material.

“There has been a sheet of iron

come off already,” Mr Pauling said.

“It could just about cut someone

in half.”

The owners did not want

to pull the shed down as they

would have to get a building

consent to erect a new one on

the same site if the shed was

gone, he said.

Mr Pauling was going to

check with the council whether

this was the case. If a building

consent was needed, regardless

of whether the shed was there

or not, there was no point in the

shed staying.

A Selwyn District Council

spokesperson said the council

could do nothing “from a

Resource Management Act

standpoint,” to remove the current

shed.

New Zealand Transport

ISSUE: A shed

on Pocock

Rd has the

potential to

cause harm.

Agency media manager Frances

Adank said roading contractors

had not advised the organisation

of any shed thought to be

endangering motorists in that

location.

“We would be interested to

hear more from the community

board.”

NZTA would have to work

with the council to remove the

shed as it was on private land,

she said.

Have your say

on speed limits

Fire rages, homes at risk

SELWYN RESIDENTS can now

have their say on speeds in the

district.

The district council approved a

draft revised speed limit bylaw for

public consultation at its meeting

last week.

The revised bylaw will ensure

the district council meets its

legal obligations for setting speed

limits, and will bring the bylaw

up to date with best practice, New

Zealand Transport Agency and

legal requirements.

It also approved a range of

speed limit changes for public

consultation. These are mainly

around schools and follow a prior

round of speed limit changes late

last year.

Changes to some 70km/h zones

are also proposed, in line with

NZTA guidelines.

Consultation on both the bylaw

and the speed limit changes are

open until February.

The proposed speed limit

changes include reducing speed

limits around school frontages

to 40 km/h and a variable

40km/h school zone speed limit

on Weedons Ross Rd fronting

Weedons School and Robinsons

Rd fronting Broadfield School.

Big turnout for successful Highland

STRENGTH: Jayden Hill competes in the sheaf toss.

ANOTHER successful Hororata

Highland Games has been

completed with more than 9000

people attending the eighth

annual event.

Visitors watched highland

dancers fling, drum majors twirl

their maces and strong men and

women compete in eight disciplines.

Many visitors themselves had a

go at tossing a caber, discovering

Celtic culture in amongst the 120

stalls and were delighted with entertainment

throughout the day.

The event, staged by the

Hororata Community Trust,

was held under sunny skies on

Saturday after a huge amount of

rain saw widespread flooding in

other parts of the South Island on

Friday.

Event manager Cindy Driscoll

said set up for the event took

a whole week and it knew the

weather was going to be a challenge

with the heavy rain on

Thursday and Friday.

“The team rose to this challenge

and were well prepared. We are

very lucky with the Hororata

Domain as a venue as it coped with

the amount of rain we received

on the Friday with surface water

draining away by the time the

gates opened on Saturday,” she

said.

BIG DAY: More than 9000

people attended the eighth

annual Hororata Highland

Games.

Mrs Driscoll said with Kiwi

ingenuity and teamwork the event

“went off without a hitch” and

many visitors were pleasantly surprised

with how good the grounds

were.

The event was opened by

Chieftain Patrick Hellier, New

Zealand’s highest achieving Highland

Games heavy athlete.

“It was great for me to experience

the full festival surrounding

the heavy arena where I normally

spend most of my time,” he said.

Mr Hellier said being welcomed

onto the stage by local kapa haka

group and saluted by the bands

was an experience he would never

forget.

More than 500 competitors

competed in 12 competitive

events, including the tug of war,

sack carry and small-bore rifle

shooting.

The Gough CAT Oceania

heavyweight championship was

won by Jono McFarlane.

Julie Stechmann won the

amateur heavy women’s championship

and Brian Reeves won the

men’s.

The champion highland dancer

was Danielle Joy and champion

pipe band was Canterbury Caledonian

Society’s Highland Pipe

Band.

The Darfield High School team

won the Harraways junior warriors

inter-school competition and

the Average Joes from Christchurch

took out the trophy pull in

the Southfuels tug of war.

Hororata’s 15-year-old Harry

Cookson won the Selwyn

Times kilted mile. This running

race is not the normal mile as

competitors have to jump over

obstacles, eat, drink and run.

Selwyn Sounds

HOMECOMING: Jon Stevens will perform at Selwyn Sounds in March.

Stevens coming home

to play in NZ for first

time in five years

One of New Zealand’s most successful musical exports Jon Stevens

will perform in the country for the first time in four years at Selwyn

Sounds. Matt Salmons caught up him about coming home and

supporting rural Australia

JON STEVENS will not be in his

homeland long for his performance

at Selwyn Sounds – but his first New

Zealand gig in five years will recharge

him, he says.

The Upper Hutt-born rocker will fly out

the day after Selwyn Sounds to meet commitments

at the Red Hot Summer Tour in

Australia.

Stevens said the Australian tour organisers

had tried to convince him to pull out

of Selwyn Sounds.

“I said ‘no way’. I’m not going to opt out

of a New Zealand show, sorry boys,” he

said.

As well as a “frantic” live performance

schedule this year, Stevens said he started

work on his 11th album in January, with a

view to release it in mid-2019.

It will feature his latest song, Rain Down

On Me, released on October 26 to support

drought-stricken farmers in Australia.

He also performed at the Hay Mate concert

on October 27, which raised money

for Australian charity Rural Aid.

“It was great to be a part of it and help

people,” Stevens said.

He said the song, written in January,

fitted the situation as it spoke of a struggle,

but also of hope on the horizon. All proceeds

from the song go to Rural Aid.

“I’m just going to give it to the farmers

and they can have every single cent that

comes from it. That’s my way to help.”

Although he visited family in Queenstown

last year, the last time he performed

in New Zealand was 2013 when he opened

for Aerosmith in Dunedin as part of the

Global Warming Tour.

Stevens said he was most looking

forward to “recharging” himself by reconnecting

with his homeland.

“Just putting my feet on the soil again,

you know?”

The youngest of 11, Stevens said he had

“whanau for days” and hoped to fit in a

catch-up.​

“I’ve got a few cousins in Christchurch,

so I’ll catch up with them, get a boil up

going. I’ll be sweet.”

Stevens’ career launched at the age of 16

in 1980 with the release of Jezebel, which

topped the New Zealand charts at the

time.

Since then, the performer has released

10 studio albums, including band and solo

work, working alongside some of the most

well-known names in the music industry.

Stevens said he found it “cute” that

New Zealand fans still asked to hear his

early releases “from my teenage era” and

planned to keep his set list fluid and respond

to the crowd.

“Of course, we’ll play what the

people want. I might play one new song.

I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it,” he

said.

Selwyn Sounds is on Saturday,

March 2, at the Lincoln Domain.

Tickets are available at www.

selwynsounds.co.nz

• Jon Stevens’ latest song Rain

Down On Me is available to purchase

on iTunes. All proceeds go to

farmers through Rural Aid

Our People

Vanessa-Amy Greenwood

was named the supreme

winner for her design

Pteraon at the Art

Couture NZ wearable arts

competition last month. The

Southbridge mother keeps

busy with art, gardening and

working at the Rakaia Island

dairy farm. Emily O’Connell

talks to her about her

passions

Can you tell me a bit about

entering the wearable arts

competition?

I decided to enter about a

week before the due date and

it was more a case of why not?

I had made the garments and

they were just sitting in the shed

collecting bird poo so I thought

why not, someone might enjoy

them.

Had you made the garments

for the competition or was

there something else you had

used them for as well?

I had made them originally for

WOW but they wouldn’t have

got in WOW.

You didn’t end up entering

WOW?

No, I wimped out.

Can you tell me about the two

garments you made?

Elixir is the one made from

Nespresso coffee capsules. It

was based on one of the old

World Vision advertisements

where they said for $1 a day we

could help save a life and each

coffee capsule costs about $1.

So it was a food for thought

sort of concept that we have our

luxuries and other people don’t.

And Pteraon is made out of

inner tubes and paint, she was

about something from out of

this world. If there was another

world it’s what I would like it to

look like. The wings on her are

more about me and how it would

be nice to be able to spread your

wings and sort of step out of

comfort zones.

How long did you spend on

both of the entries?

Pteraon, from the moment

I started making her, took

about 12 months. Elixir took

18 months but that includes

Southbridge School.

collecting all the capsules as well

because I didn’t drink all that

coffee.

Do you think you’ll enter it

again next year?

Yes.

How did you feel when you

were announced as the supreme

winner?

I was shell shocked. I really

was. When I saw the calibre of

work that was there I was really

amazed. I couldn’t quite believe

that they stood up against

everybody else’s work. I didn’t

believe it.

Have you always been into

design and fashion?

If you saw what I wear every

day you would know I’m not

into fashion at all. I am very

practical with what I wear, it’s

all about comfort and what I’m

doing but I love art and it’s just

another form of art for me. I’ve

got no skills in dressmaking or

anything. I had to teach myself

boning while I was going, just so

Vanessa-Amy Greenwood

For the love of art – a Southbridge mother’s

I could achieve it.

How did you learn the

different arts skills you have?

Trial and error. I failed art at

school. In some respects I feel

like “yeah see, you said I couldn’t

do it.” I picked up a paintbrush

after my daughter Bronte was

born and she is 10-yearsold

now. I’ve just practised I

suppose.

Would you say art is your

passion?

Yes. It’s sort of a bit like the

SELWYN TIMES

air that you breathe, if I’m not

doing art, I don’t really feel like

I’m living.

What are some of the

different forms of art you do?

I paint backdrops and murals,

I do topiary, like my garden is

all topiary, I do resin work and

I do oil painting. I’m teaching

myself a bit of sculpture at the

moment. I haven’t really stuck to

one thing.

Can you tell me about the

mural you’re painting for

Southbridge School?

Well the school has its 150th

jubilee coming up so they

wanted a mural to go on one of

their walls outside, they wanted

it to include their five values . . .

I’ve had to move away from what

my normal type of art is which

is all very freehand and this one

is very bold, bright colours but

in blocks and more symbolism

to go with the silhouettes of

children’s face as well.

How long have you lived in

Southbridge?

15 years.

Why did you move to

Southbridge? Where did you

come from?

I grew up at Living Springs

and I changed from being a

hairdresser to dairy farming and

met my husband Mike who was

from Sedgemere.

How do you find living in

Southbridge? Do you enjoy it?

Yes, actually I really do.

I miss the hills but living in

Southbridge is such a lovely,

tight-knit community. There’s

also someone you can count

on. It’s a safe place for children,

people look out for them.

Why the change from

hairdressing to farming?

I wanted to be outdoors. I’m

not very good at being indoors.

How did you find the

change?

It had its challenges. Like in

my first week it rained and you

know, I had to get wet weather

gear for the first time in my life.

But being able to get up and see

the sunrise was probably the best

thing about it, even now I still

love being able to watch the sun

rise.

creative journey

Can you tell me a bit about the

work you do now on the Rakaia

Island dairy farm?

I don’t actually work with the

livestock any more. I plant and

maintain the native plantings

they have there for environmental

advancement.

What made you get into

planting?

I’m very passionate about our

environment and recycling. I

know that a lot of the plants I’m

putting in now I will never see

them at their full glory but my

child will and her children will. To

know that we’re sort of helping the

environment for our children and

future generations is what really

drives me to do it. And I get to see

all the bird life which I love.

Obviously art’s a huge passion

of yours, what are some of your

other hobbies?

Gardening is probably my other

main hobby.

How long do you spend in the

garden?

It’s a bit embarrassing. I can

forget that it’s dinner time. My

husband asked me to start wearing

a hi-vis so he can find me in the

garden because I just stay out

there. It’s nothing for me to end

up with a head lamp on my head

and keep going. But I’m like that

when I’m doing any of my art,

time disappears on me. I have

no concept of it at all. You sort of

get lost in your own world while

you’re doing it.

Are there any goals you’re

wanting to achieve with your

design or your garden?

I would love to see a garment get

to WOW. Win or lose I wouldn’t

mind, I just want to see it come to

life on-stage. My art, I would love

to paint murals and backdrops for

the rest of my life and I would be

happy. If I could paint every day

for the rest of my life I think that

would be the happiest life I could

have.

Is there anything you would

like to add, which I haven’t

asked?

I have depression and I’ve had

depression for 10 years and for me

to step outside of my comfort zone

has been the biggest challenge I’ve

ever faced particularly with the

Art Couture. That was terrifying.

I had people to support me and

people who say: “You can do it.”

If I hadn’t had people around me

that were so supportive I would

never have managed to do it but

the feeling you get from achieving

it, it was well worth the panic

attacks.

What’s your advice to other

people who have depression?

Some days are a big struggle but

celebrate every small achievement.

Sometimes getting out of bed is

the biggest achievement of the day

but you did it.

Do you find your art helps with

your depression?

Absolutely. I honestly think it’s

a form of therapy. I would love to

be able to do something like that

with people and help them. It just

frees your mind up and you stop

thinking about all your problems.

INTEREST: Six Selwyn schools attended the Selwyn-Waihora zone committee meeting last week. ​

Pupils look to nature at water

zone committee meeting

SELWYN-WAIHORA water

zone committee’s meeting took

on a decidedly youthful look

last week.

In a first for Canterbury –

and possibly New Zealand

– school pupils were invited to

participate fully in the proceedings

of a water zone committee.

Welcoming the pupils, committee

chairman Allen Lim said

it was “great” to see so many

young people coming together

to discuss the important issues

of freshwater management and

biodiversity.

“These face-to-face conversations

and the people element

are critical in a collaborative

process like this,” he said.

The participating schools,

Burnham, Ladbrooks, Lincoln

Primary, Prebbleton, Rolleston

Christian and Springston,

are all Enviroschools. This

means they have committed to

creating a healthy, peaceful and

sustainable world via “action

learning”, where generations

work with and learn from

nature.

Enviroschools facilitator Matt

Stanford and Lou Drage from

Te Ara Kakariki shared their

collaborative Kids Discovery

Plant-outs initiative, working

with nearby Enviroschools to

connect them with restoration

projects close to their schools.

Key to their success is the authentic

contexts for learning the

programme provides. One example

was Rolleston Christian

School supporting dairy farmer

Adele Well to restore a riparian

margin on her farm.

The pupils and parents helped

plant 420 eco-sourced native

plants beside the Hororata

River. The pupils are now keen

to learn how to fence.

Each school had an opportunity

to share information about

their freshwater and biodiversity

projects and discuss issues

that are important to them.

Ladbrooks School gave the

example of a bug hotel and

bird and bug forest, Prebbleton

School talked about recycled

tyres being used as seats and

Rolleston Christian School

discussed hydroponics and

beeswax wraps.

Environment Canterbury

Programme manager Caroline

Hart applauded the initiative

and hoped it could be transferable.

“They’re at the heart

of effective community

participation in decisions

affecting water in their areas.

It’s critical that the youth voice

is heard – they’re the ones

who will carry our plans and

aspirations into the future,” she

said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Tsunami test for emergency services

• By Emily O’Connell

A TSUNAMI exercise has been

role-played in Selwyn.

Emergency services, civil

defence response team, community

response team and welfare

volunteers spent an evening recently

“evacuating” areas within

the tsunami zone and setting up

emergency centres.

District council

property and commercial

manager

Douglas Marshall

said the exercise

was held to test its

field resources in a

Douglas

Marshall

tsunami situation.

He said it runs different

scenarios for

its exercises such as earthquakes

and snowstorms.

“We generally run one exercise

per year, sometimes more,” Mr

Marshall said.

As it was only an exercise,

the public was not asked to

evacuate.

Environment Canterbury

earthquake and tsunami hazard

scientist Helen Jack said the “vast

majority” of tsunamis Selwyn

would experience are small and

don’t inundate land.

“The biggest impact for

Selwyn then is that you could

get the strong and unpredictable

currents happening along the

coast and especially at the river

mouths,” she said.

In the case of a very large

tsunami, Ms Jack said fields

could be flooded with saltwater

and it could overrun low lying

areas such as the Rakaia Huts or

Taumutu.

“Most tsunamis are small. . .

but they still need to be taken

seriously because if you’re in the

water or on the beach, you can

still get knocked off your feet,”

she said.

When it comes to a tsunami

occurring along the coast of

Selwyn, south of Banks Peninsula,

Ms Jack said they don’t

have any evidence of recently

active faults in that area and the

EMERGENCY:

A tsunami

exercise

took place

in Selwyn

recently to

test field

resources.

chances of something happening

are “very, very low.”

She said most of Selwyn’s

tsunamis come from other

places, such as central or South

America, and these would occur

a few times a decade.

The scenario practised recently

was a tsunami generated from an

earthquake off the cost of Peru.

Mr Marshall said they cannot

predict the exact damage a tsunami

would cause to Selwyn, as

each one is different, but people

would need to go to the evacuation

zones.

“In a tsunami that inundates

land there can be significant

damage to buildings, crops, and

infrastructure,” Mr Marshall

said.

Lincoln chief fire officer

Jeremy Greenwood said the

exercise was “really good” and it

was “well done.”

He said the Lincoln crew was

based at both Greenpark huts

and Selwyn huts and it was going

through how it would evacuate

the different areas, liaising

with volunteers and setting up

evacuation centres.

“It was good to see everyone

work together. Hopefully, if it

does happen, we will be well prepared,”

Mr Greenwood said.

Leeston and Southbridge fire

brigades also helped during the

exercise.

Mr Marshall said in the event

of a tsunami or risk of one,

people should evacuate “quickly

and safely,” help neighbours,

follow instructions from civil

defence and emergency services

and if possible, stay with family

and friends.

WELCOME TO HIRE A HUBBY

BRUCE WOODGATE

Bruce Woodgate is our new Hire A Hubby

franchisee in Selwyn. He has joined the

network of over 50 Hubby’s working throughout

New Zealand and is looking forward to caring for

customers from Prebbleton to Arthur’s Pass and all

the areas in-between.

Bruce will be easy to spot driving his distinctive

black Hire A Hubby ute, and he is especially looking

forward to being able to provide a good honest

service and a friendly smile, as well as seeing the

satisfaction of happy customers and a job well done.

Bruce has always had a love of building, landscaping,

home maintenance and renovation, and after an

extensive career in building, scaffolding, landscaping

and project management, he has decided that it is

time to turn his skills into a business.

Bruce is helped by his wife Sue, who is also a skilled

project manager and together they enjoy solving

problems and bringing great outcomes together for

their customers. Bruce is able to complete a wide

range of jobs to improve your property, including

everything from those annoyingly tricky installation

jobs, to a new deck, fence or a complete home

renovation.

Originally from the UK, Bruce loves living in

Prebbleton and along with Sue is dedicated to

building their business in the local community.

Bruce plans to use his extensive DIY knowledge

accumulated over the years to benefit the

customers in his community.

Demand for professional home maintenance and

renovation services has grown significantly since

Hire A Hubby started in New Zealand in 1998. These

days people are time-poor or simply don’t have the

range of skills or specialist equipment required to

complete projects on their own.

Bruce says, “My priority is to provide a top-quality

service, and to back that up all Hire A Hubby work

carries a guarantee. At the end of the day, it’s all

about taking away the stress so that you can sit

back and enjoy your home, knowing that the

maintenance is taken care of!”

“I want customers to enjoy the whole experience

of dealing with Hire A Hubby as easy, stress free

and rewarding. While some people can find DIY a

difficult, time consuming process, I want people

to feel confident to ask me to complete even the

smallest task”

We can handle it all and if any additional specialist

tradesmen are needed then we can arrange them

for you as well.

Hundreds set to attend Southbridge 150th

More than 600 people

are expected to come

together to mark

Southbridge School’s

150th jubilee next week

PREPARATIONS TO celebrate

the significant milestone from

November 23-25 started two

years ago with the forming of

a committee to organise and

oversee the celebratory activities.

Committee chairwoman Carey

Barnett said it has received an

overwhelming uptake that has

exceeded expectations.

“It’s wonderful to have

over 600 people registered to

attend various events over the

weekend,” she said.

Southbridge School opened on

April 27, 1868, after a number of

Southbridge residents presented

a memorial to the Board of

Education and a public meeting

was held at the Southbridge

Hotel.

At the time, householders of

the area had to provide £50 per

householder and the education

board funded another £150 for

each subscribing householder in

order to provide a school room

and the schoolmaster’s residence.

Once the buildings were

arranged, the school committee

was allowed to advertise for

CURRENT: Southbridge School will mark its 150 years next weekend.

the schoolmaster’s position at a

salary of not less than £100 per

year.

The education board paid £75

of this amount and the rest was

provided by local contributions.

The opening roll of the school

was 20, but this quickly rose to

32 within a few months. The

school roll peaked in 1891 at 389.

In 1903, the school established

a secondary department which

initially consisted of 30-40

students.

The school then became

known as Southbridge District

High School and served

secondary students from further

afield until the end of 1980

when Ellesmere College was

established.

The primary school remained

and is still going today, nestled

in the sumptuous surrounds on

Hastings St.

Steeped in history, the school

still hosts pupils in classrooms

that were built in 1927 but have

since been modified to meet

changes in schooling methods.

The ‘leaver’s fence’ which

adorns the front of the school

grounds boosts some of New

Zealand’s finest sporting figures.

It includes former All

Blacks Doug Bruce, Albert

Anderson and Daniel Carter,

Commonwealth gold medallist

for shooting Graeme Ede, New

Zealand volleyball and women’s

rugby player Kimberley Smith,

New Zealand rowing coxswain

Residents say Selwyn

still ‘a great place’

Consultation opens on draft

Parking Strategy

Public consultation is now open for the Council’s Draft Parking

Strategy which aims to manage the district’s parking in an equitable

and coherent way.

The Draft Parking Strategy sets out ways to manage parking for

different parts of the Selwyn district, particularly in larger town centres

such as Rolleston and Lincoln. It provides for both private and public

parking, and links with the Council’s other transport strategies.

The need for the Draft Parking Strategy is a signal of the impact

of growth in the district. With that growth comes the demand to

manage parking that works for growing residential communities

and an expanding business sector, as well as our rural areas. This

strategy is about ensuring that the parking system provides safe,

efficient access to services and destinations, and allows Selwyn’s

townships to thrive.

The Council is inviting residents to provide their feedback on the

Draft Parking Strategy from Friday 9 November 2018 to 5pm on

Friday 7 December 2018.

For more information visit yoursay.selwyn.govt.nz/draft-parkingstrategy.

Parks and reserves

Friendly communities, good services and facilities, peaceful, open spaces, events and activities,

and feeling safe – these are just a few of the reasons why most local people enjoy living in Selwyn.

The Council’s 2018 annual residents survey shows that 91% of people surveyed agreed that

Selwyn was ‘a great place to live’ – the same proportion as last year.

A majority of residents also gave the thumbs-up to the services and facilities that the Council

provides, with 69% of residents rating the Council’s overall performance as good or very good,

similar to last year’s 70%.

The result continues a long-term trend which has seen the overall performance rating increase

steadily from 58% in 2013.

Among the services that respondents rated most highly were rubbish collection (95% rated good

or very good), recycling (94%), parks and reserves (85%), libraries (84%), and water supply (76%).

Across the 24 different Council services surveyed, the biggest increases in satisfaction were

recorded for organic waste collection (up 4%), making roads and footpaths safer (up 3%), and

playgrounds (up 3%).

Services which saw a significant decrease in satisfaction included water races (down 6%), public

toilets (down 6%), cemeteries (down 5%), land drainage (down 5%), the resource recovery park

down 5%), and sewerage and waste water (down 4%).

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says it’s no surprise that people feel positive about the district.

Selwyn has a lot to offer – thriving townships, a growing economy, good schools and services

and a stunning environment right in our back yard,” he says.

“It’s great to hear that most residents think the Council is doing a good job overall, but it’s also

important to get feedback on the areas where need to lift our game. We do take careful note of the

findings of this survey each year, and look at how we might need to shift our priorities to provide

better service in key areas.”

The survey was carried out in June and July by independent research company Research First,

and surveyed 421 people using telephone, cellphone and online surveys to provide a statistically

representative sample of Selwyn’s population.

The full residents’ survey is available at: www.selwyn.govt.nz/residents-survey

New tsunami plan effective

Council’s new tsunami plan was tested during a scenario exercise

held recently.

The exercise was an opportunity to test the Council’s recently

updated Selwyn Tsunami Plan. The tsunami scenario, run by the

Selwyn Civil Defence Emergency Management, involved testing

how emergency services and community volunteers would evacuate

people from a specific zone (Orange Zone). No one was actually

told to leave their homes during the exercise.

The exercise also tested Civil Defence and emergency services’

processes and procedures during such an event as well as that of

the Selwyn’s Response Team, Welfare Team and local community

response volunteers from all over the district.

Council Emergency Management Officer Ryan O’Rourke says the

exercise proved that the plan is effective, and also helped to identify

a number of small improvements.

“This was a great example of community involvement in Civil

Defence and of residents looking after their neighbours,” Mr

O’Rourke says. “It’s the second tsunami exercise we’ve run in the

last few months – the previous exercise involved the Emergency

Operations Centre (EOC) only. This one involved the EOC

coordinating with resources out on the ground, such as Fire and

Emergency NZ local brigades.”

You can find more information about the Selwyn Tsunami Plan

and learn about the different zones on the Council’s website:

www.selwyn.govt.nz/tsunami.

Sign up to Selwyn Gets Ready

The Council offers a free Civil Defence alerting system to residents,

which sends text and email alerts to subscribed households in

the event of an emergency like a tsunami, wildfire, snow or severe

weather. We strongly recommend that your household subscribes to

this service.

To join visit www.selwyn.getsready.net and click ‘join’. You can

register up to two emails and mobile phones per household to

receive alerts.

Time to report potholes

Weedons

Residents’

Association

secretary

Gary Doyle

writes

about

potholes in

the district

and what

residents should do about

them

POTHOLES ARE the bane

of every driver or cyclists life.

They are surely one of the most

hated things that we all have to

endure.

However, what can we or even

what do we do to try and eradicate

these annoying obstacles to

our daily life?

For the most part we do nothing,

they need fixing, the council

should do something about

them, but they do nothing. That

is the cry you hear again and

again, but I will ask the question,

what do you do, or for that

matter what should you do?

Over the past few years I will

readily admit that I have been

slack in this area of reporting

potholes. The answer to can we

get them fixed is not all that

difficult, a quick phone call to

council and the relevant pothole

can be logged into the system for

PROBLEM: Weedons Residents’ Association secretary Gary

Doyle is encouraging residents to report potholes rather than

just complain. ​

remedial action.

But how many people do this,

very few, unfortunately, me included

I am sorry to say, time to

change that. To report a pothole

or any other issue, phone 347

2800 and ask for the help desk.

Remember that we all live in

the district and it is beholden

on all of us to try and make

the experiences as pleasant as

possible. The attitude of “not my

problem” is also not helpful.

The old saying of “a stitch in

time saves nine” is very relevant

when dealing with these issues.

A simple quick fix on a small

pothole may well actually save a

vehicle from serious damage or

even a life.

We pay rates to have these issues

along with other remedied,

but if we do nothing and just sit

back then we have no grounds

to complain if something goes

wrong.

So okay, let’s get a little active

and report these blasted potholes

and at least get rid of one

hazard from our daily lives.

Kirkwood Opportunities

‘Schooling for the Whole Child’

At Kirkwood we are very proud of our children and their achievements. Our pupils have many opportunities to participate

in a wide range of education activities including Technology; ICT; Music; Drama; Education Outside The Classroom;

Leadership roles; Camps; Academic challenges; and Sports. Our pupils develop a wide range of skills which helps them

develop educationally, socially, emotionally and physically during their time with us. Just a few of the opportunities our

pupils have experienced this year are as follows:

Education Outside the

Classroom

We visit many different places within our community

such as Canterbury Museum, Riccarton House

and the Art Gallery. We also offer class camps for

our Year 7 and Year 8 pupils. This year our Year

7’s camped at Purau Bay where they experienced

canoeing, abseiling and camping skills, along

with getting to know their class and developing

friendships.

Our Year 8 pupils are currently enjoying their

Wellington camp. These camps provide

great opportunities for learning and personal

development.

China Trip

Part way through the July school holidays, Ethan, Brooke, Aaliya, Casper,

Mackenzie, Lauren, Ryan, Alexander, Katie and Grace and two teachers

had the opportunity to explore China. This was the first Panda camp we

have attended.

The following article was written by Katie and Alex:

‘The Temple of Heaven, the Pearl Markets, the Summer Palace and

seeing the general lifestyle of the Chinese people. They were able to see

some beautiful buildings with long, rich histories of emperors and different

dynasties. Haggling is common at the Pearl Markets and was a very

different experience for us, which encouraged us to quickly learn about

converting yuan into New Zealand dollars to get a good price. We also

really enjoyed the boat ride across the Emperor’s lake; there have been

many great memories made as a group.

Our days at the Chinese school were busy - making new friends, teaching

rakau and the cup song, learning Chinese calligraphy and songs as well as

experiencing a huge school cafeteria, which was a very different experience!

It was a great opportunity to see how school works in a different country

and try new things. We all enjoyed teaching physical education games such

as elastics and a football/badminton game that we pretty much invented.

Duck, duck, goose was also a favourite amongst the pupils in China!

We were fortunate to continue to travel and see incredible sights such as

The Great Wall of China, where we were all able to walk a section. Another

highlight was the Beijing Zoo, it was a great chance to see some rare

animals but the living conditions were very sad. In addition to these places

we also visited the 2008 Olympic venues, the Water Cube and the Bird’s

Nest, as well as the Olympic torch and Olympic Village areas which we

found to be interesting. Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City also

hold important places in Chinese history and often we were in awe of how

immense these places are in addition to hearing about the incredible history

behind the building of these structures. The National Museum of China was

also very impressive in both the artwork and size of the building!

We will all recall some amazing chances to explore a different culture, some

interesting memories for us as Kirkwood United and the opportunity to

represent Kirkwood with pride as global youth ambassadors. We would like

to say a huge thank you to Miss Toaolamai and Mr Gaut for their support

on the trip. Thank you to our parents for encouraging us to take up such an

awesome opportunity. We all had an amazing time and hope to see more

Kirkwood students exploring the world in years to come!

Sports

We participate in a large variety of sports including: Netball, Football, Cross

Country, Skiing, Swimming, Rugby, Basketball, Waterpolo, Touch Rugby, Korf

Ball, Table Tennis, Badminton, Athletics and Gymnastics. We also compete in

the Canterbury Association of Intermediate and Middle Schooling competitions.

Our school is well known for the courtesy, co-operation and sportsmanship

of our teams and we value this highly. Some of the highlights this year are as

follows:

Example from last year:

Korfball Tournament - We sent two teams to the Canterbury Korfball

Tournament. Bowls Tournament - we had 12 successfully compete at the

Canterbury Bowls Tournament. Table Tennis - 4 of our Table Tennis teams

were placed in the top 3 of their weekly competition. Girls’ Basketball team

were placed third in their Friday evening competition.

Many of our pupils have been selected to represent Canterbury and/or have

been selected for the Nationals in various sports which makes our school proud.

Technology

Our on-site technology centre provides our pupils

with a range of creative learning experiences in

different areas: Foods, Electronics, Robotics and

Materials (metal, wood, fabric and plastic). Our

pupils have created a large variety of work this

year. We also participate in Robofest, Future in

Tech programmes, EPro8 and 3D printing.

Programmes focus on Planning for Practice, Brief

Development and Outcome Evaluation.

ICT: We have pods of touch screen laptops,

ordinary laptops and Chromebooks

for classroom use to enable pupils

to develop their skills. Pupils are

also welcome to bring their own

technology. More pupils are doing

this each year. We recommend that

parents check which devices are

used at the High School they think

their children will be attending.

Blues Awards

Outstanding achievements, whether they

are personal or at school, are celebrated

via our Blues Awards system. Our

students can achieve a Blues Award in

various areas such as Cultural, Sports

and Academic.

An Outstanding Elite Blues Award may

be achieved if a student has achieved an

Academic, Cultural and a Sporting Blue.

There are quite strict criteria for receiving

a Blue and these are outlined on our

website www.kirkwood.school.nz

School Production

Every second year we produce a school

performance for all interested pupils. Our

next School Production will be in 2019.

Don’t forget, there are still some places available for Year 7 and Year 8 for 2019.

Please visit our website www.kirkwood.school.nz for information and to

download an enrolment form or ring the office on 348 7718.

New coaches eye up more titles for Lincoln Uni

• By Gordon Findlater

Wednesday November 14 2018

NEW HEAD coach Alex

Robertson and assistant Craig

Dunlea will look to guide

Lincoln University to a fifth

straight metro rugby title next

year.

The pair come to Lincoln with

some country rugby flavour,

having both been involved in

Canterbury Country’s rugby

programme in recent years.

Robertson and Dunlea take

over from Bevan Sissons and

Ben Blair who guided the side to

victory this year.

“Ben and Bevan didn’t want to

continue. They’ve served Lincoln

very well over the last few years,”

said Lincoln University sport

scholarship manager Peter

Magson.

Sissons has taken up a

coaching role with Burnside,

while Blair has done the same at

Marist Albion.

Robertson has spent the last

two years as co-coach at Darfield

and head coach of the Ellesmere

senior side. Last year he was also

an assistant coach at Canterbury

He has also coached the New

“I really like the challenge

of developing the players to

become better, which will put

them in contention for higher

achievements.”

Motoring

• By Ross Kiddie

VOLKSWAGEN’S Golf GTi

has had a strong following from

those who like to be driving a hot

hatchback.

The legendary sports car has

an enviable reputation for performance

and is certainly on my list

of desirables but at almost $60k it

is probably out of reach for many

– including me.

However, Volkswagen has

another desirable hot hatch in its

books – the Polo GTi. The Polo

in this form is a vibrant, fivedoor

modelled on the lines of

its Golf stablemate, albeit with a

$21,000 price difference.

Of course, you don’t get all

the trick stuff of Golf GTi, but

the Polo equivalent is still well

specced, powerful and light, the

combination providing the ingredients

for sporty ability.

Under the bonnet of the Polo

GTi sits a 2-litre, turbocharged

engine which develops 147kW

and 320Nm. While they may seem

average outputs compared to many

of the high performing models

which make up this part of the

market, the Polo GTi is a quick

car. It develops a lot of torque low

down (1500rpm-4400rpm), these

figures meeting the low point of

maximum power at 4400rpm.

Consequently, it is swift off the

mark and will lunge to high speeds

quickly. For the record, it will

make 100km/h from a standstill

in 6.7sec, and will scorch through

a highway overtake in 4.4sec

(80km/h to 120km/h).

The test car was fitted with a sixspeed

direct shift gearbox, effectively

that means it’s an automatic.

It is a quick-shifting transmission

with ratios that enhance engine

performance, they are low in the

first three or four slots, broadening

to provide relaxed highway motoring

and fuel usage savings.

Volkswagen claim a 5.9-litre

per 100km/h (48mpg) combined

cycle fuel usage rating, which

sits well with the 7.2l/100km

(39mpg) showing during testing

time. Considering I was aggressive

with the throttle, exploring

its acceleration and performance

potential frequently, those

figures are commendable. At

100km/h the engine is relaxed at

just 1750rpm, returning a fabulous

instantaneous readout of

4.5l/100km (63mpg).

However, such is the freerevving

nature of the engine, fuel

economy often gets ignored, the

Polo has decisive response to

accelerator input, it is feisty and

downright keen to pull hard.

The excitement from under the

bonnet is matched by a firm-riding,

sport-orientated suspension.

The Polo’s set-up isn’t as sophisticated

as that of the Golf GTi, and

as its simplicity shows, the ride is

a little harsh, there’s not a lot of

compliance, but it is engineered

towards a positive handling experience,

and to that end it excels.

However, the Polo GTi points

and turns into a corner with decisive

steering feel and kart-like

stability. It is extremely nimble

and agile, a lot of that thanks

to the light weight of the car in

total. At 1355kg it isn’t dragging

around any excess, which means

a high power-to-weight ratio,

and with its angry engine sound

and lovely, but subdued, exhaust

crackle on gearshifts, the Polo

GTi lures and entices the driver

to explore its potential.

I took the test car on a route

which takes in a raft of corner

types, and I couldn’t fault its

poise and balance, it is a car

which you just don’t want to get

out of, such is its all round ability.

At around $39k the Polo GTi

also comes in with a good level of

kit. I particularly like the tartan

seats, they are very much a match

for Golf GTi, alongside that, the

Polo GTi also encapsulates a lot

of what Volkswagen represents as

a performance brand.

The Polo has been used with

considerable success in the World

Rally Championship, and the

GTi branding benefits from that

exposure. With the way the Polo

GTi looks and the inclusion of

features such as a built-in stopwatch

you could almost believe it

is meant for competition.

It’s most certainly an exciting

car to be behind the wheel of,

and at its price point it is also a

realistic opportunity for those

who like something different in a

Gardening

• By Henri Ham

LUPINS ARE one of our most

popular cottage garden flowers

and it’s not hard to see why.

Their impressive flower spires

with closed, baby bonnet-type

petals will brighten up any

garden. And their many shades

of blues, violets, pinks and white

– all enhanced by vibrant green

foliage – inject fantastic colour.

But what I also like about

lupins is that they are relatively

laid back. They don’t require a

perfectly fertilised, mulched and

dug-over soil to start out on. A

moderately fertile (at best) bed

of soil is just fine. A bit sandy

– even better. In fact, I often suggest

lupins to my lesser-inclined

green-fingered friends as they

cope well with less love.

I like to plant lupins in my

cottage garden flower bed. I

plant them alongside hollyhocks

(another much taller statuesque

flower), delphiniums, marigolds

and poppies.

If you’re not sure on what

combo you should be doing, how

about a mix.

While lupins are laid back,

they do still like a nice, sunny,

well-drained spot to grow.

Plant the seedlings or plants

50cm apart give them a decent

watering as soon as they’re

planted. After this only water

every few days.

Lupins grow a taproot, which

is a main root growing straight

down. Because of this, pots are

not their first choice of growing

location. And they also don’t

cope well with clay, as they struggle

breaking through this solid

layer in the soil.

Being a perennial (lasting

more than one year), you might

like to divide up your lupins in

autumn. Dividing perennial

plants while they are dormant

can help expand your garden,

and ensures they will be ready to

bloom again come spring.

When your plants start to

look a bit overgrown (around

autumn), first prune them back,

then mulch and fertilise. When

the leaves at the centre of the

plant start to die off leaving gaping

holes you’ll know you can

divide them.

To divide lupins, dig them up

around 30cm past the edge of

the plant. Wash the roots with

water and then gently pull the

plant apart. You may need to cut

part of the taproot to separate it.

Each new clump you’re left with

Brighten your backyard with laid back lupins

VIBRANT:

Mixing

up lupins

in your

garden will

provide a

wealth of

different

colours.

Fire rages, homes at risk

should have around four or five

new growth buds.

You can now replant the

healthiest segments of your

lupin. Dividing and shifting your

plant locations is an excellent

way to freshen up your garden.

This is also the time to dig in

new compost to give your plants

the best possible kick start.

If you’re doing all this hard

work in your garden, make sure

you put in the extra effort and

keep the weeds at bay. When it

comes to weeding, a quick hoe

of any weeds once a week will

mean your plants don’t have to

compete for vital nutrients, water

and light.

Apply mulch now while you

can still get in between the

plants, before the new growth

occurs.

Lupins are prone to slugs and

snails, but their main foe is the

aphid. So keep a close eye on

aphids to ‘nip them in the bud’

before the problem gets out of

hand.

You’ll find many sprays

available at your local garden

centre. Or picking them off with

your fingers or blasting with

water can also help. But that’s

making lupins sound a bit more

labour intensive than laid back

now isn’t it?

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

A little history, a lot of appeal

Nothing beats a great location and this is definitely one of the best! Properties like this one do not come to the

grounds was purchased in 1921 and has remained in the family until now. In a beautiful setting with the hills as a

backdrop, this prime parcel of land is ready and waiting for your lifestyle and building plans to become a reality.

Offering the ultimate escape, this 7.6 hectares is located on the highly sought after Old Tai Tapu Road. Country

living within the city zone. This property will provide you with all of the benefits of living next to city amenities yet

still retain a country lifestyle feel. Don't let another day go by. The potential here is exciting!

What to ask at an open home

It’s easy to get carried away when you’re searching through

property listings for the house of your dreams. But if you’re not

careful, home buying can become a nightmare.

“Buying a property is a complex and

potentially stressful process, not least

because it involves such a scary amount

of money,” says Kevin Lampen-Smith,

chief executive at the Real Estate Authority

(REA).

“It’s smart to do as much as you can to

reduce the risk of unwelcome surprises or

unexpected costs further down the line.”

In the first instance, Lampen-Smith

recommends drawing up a list of questions

to ask about properties you’re interested in.

“Remember that you can ask the real

estate agent anything you like about the

property,” he says. “They are also required

to tell you everything they know and not

withhold any details.”

If you’re not sure what to ask, here’s a

handy list of questions. Open homes can

be busy, so ask the agent if you can talk on

the phone, or send questions via email.

- Have there been any issues with the

property, such as earthquake damage or

water-tightness?

- Are there any offers on the property,

or have any contracts been cancelled by

potential buyers?

- How long has it been on the market?

What is the seller’s preferred settlement

date?

- What maintenance, repairs or

improvements have been carried out? Do

these have permits?

- Is there a Land Information

Memorandum (LIM) available or a

building report prepared by an accredited

property surveyor?

- Is the property well-maintained? What

condition are the roof, piles, wiring, and

plumbing in?

- Is the property insulated? If so, to what

degree (eg walls, underfloor, ceiling)?

- Is there any risk of methamphetamine

(P) contamination?

- If there is a body corporate (usually for

apartments), what does that entail?

- Are there any issues with neighbours

or planned developments?

“If you are seriously considering making

an offer, you will need to do your own

research and seek professional advice. It

may well become your home, so you need

to know as much about it as possible to

save unhappy surprises later,” Lampen-

Smith says.

“Knowing the right questions to ask is a

good starting point.”

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

A design that covers it all

Ticking all the boxes is Milestone Homes’

well thought out Faringdon showhome.

Reflecting the trend towards three

bedroom homes, there is much to offer

in this 201square metre showhome from

bedroom placement, through to the

effective living area layout. This is a home

that would suit couples, families and those

who might wish to downsize, especially

as there is a four bedroom design also

available.

Sited on a landscaped 666sqm section,

the home is effectively positioned for

sunny indoor/outdoor living, with a

generous back garden area affording the

perfect setting for entertaining or play.

The open plan kitchen/dining/living

space allows the cook to interact with

guests during food preparation, and a

degree of separation where furniture

placement options exist and potential

for a study nook. Double doors access a

separate lounge or media room offering

the option for privacy to watch a movie

or escape for a quiet tête-à-tête, or for

opening up for a still larger living area.

The Trends Kitchens’ design promises

to satisfy with a double sink island where

one can also sit, a beautiful white TriStone

bench top, Fisher and Paykel appliances

(including wall oven and ceramic

cooktop), a generous supply of cupboards,

and a separate walk-in scullery.

There are three good sized bedrooms.

The master has a spacious walk-in robe

and ensuite where clever design means

the 1500mm wide double hanging vanity,

toilet and shower are tucked behind a

wall and not immediately on view when

walking into the room. Double sliders

also give master bedroom access to the

spacious back garden.

The main bathroom has a 1200mm

vanity, corner shower, and separate bath

with tiled front and surrounds. There

is both a separate main toilet and also a

laundry room where a double cupboard,

complete with shelving offers extra storage

space.

The showhome reflects Milestone

Homes’ standard specifications with

just two changes. A skylight has been

incorporated into the kitchen, to add

extra light and illustrate how particular

spaces within a home might be made

brighter. There is also an extra heat pump

in the standard double garage which has

also been fully insulated; illustrating the

difference in warmth that can be achieved

where a garage might be used for more

than just storage.

With Milestone Homes’ large range

of cleverly designed plans and upgrade

options available, reduced design time

translates into a sooner build start while

making it easier, especially for those who

are first time building clients.

The Milestone Homes’ team have

received many favourable comments from

visitors to their Faringdon showhome,

with the general consensus that this is

a home with a great feel. At a starting

price of $372,340 which includes the

standard specifications on view within

the showhome, this is an affordable build

option.

Milestone Homes’ Faringdon

showhome can be found at 5

Lemonwood Drive and is open Fridays to

Sundays from noon until 4pm. For more

information, call 343 0938.
