Mother of

three on

roller-coaster

journey

• By Emily O’Connell

ANNA PHILIPS has spent

11 years caring for patients

undergoing cancer treatment.

Now it’s her turn. The 36-yearold,

of Rolleston, has been

diagnosed with bone cancer while

on maternity leave after having her

third child.

Mrs Philips started

chemotherapy on Monday.

“It was all very sudden and very

scary of course, given I am an

oncology nurse and I know too

much about these situations,” the

Christchurch Hospital nurse said

of her diagnosis.

Test results show Mrs Philips’

cancer is contained within

her left femur. But a surgical

biopsy confirmed it is the “more

aggressive type.”

“Emotionally, it’s been very

much a roller coaster ride,” she

said.

A pain had developed in her left

leg about a year ago when she was

pregnant, but she did not think

anything of it.

But months after giving birth to

Isabella, the pain “really started to

play up again.” Exercises from the

osteopath weren’t helping so Mrs

Philips went to her doctor.

Residents’

group

didn’t

know of

chairman’s

role

• By Anan Zaki

A RESIDENTS’ group fighting

to stop the Fulton Hogan

quarry near Templeton didn’t

know its chairman was on a

community advisory group set

up by the company.

Weedons Residents’ Association

chairman John McKim is

one of seven members of the

advisory group.

The group is part of developing

information for Fulton Hogan’s

resource consent application for

its controversial quarry between

Templeton and Weedons.

A meeting was held between

Mr McKim and other committee

members after Selwyn Times

revealed his involvement in the

group.

Selwyn Times also revealed

that Ian Walsh, a resident who

lived 3km from the proposed

quarry site, was part of the

group which drew criticism

from Weedons residents.

The make-up of the remaining

five advisory group members has

been kept secret by Fulton

Hogan, which still refuses to

release them on privacy grounds.

ANNA PHILIPS has a tough battle ahead

as she starts chemotherapy to beat cancer

(page 1).

The Rolleston mum is a nurse at

Christchurch Hospital who specialises in

caring for those struck down by the dreadful Big C.

She was inspired to become a nurse and help those with

cancer after her brother succumbed to the disease when she was

a teenager.

Her cancer is contained within her left femur, but a biopsy

has determined it is the “more aggressive type.”

We wish her all the best.

On pages 16, 17 and 18 we look at an institution which has

reinvented itself over the years – the Lincoln Club.

Not a bad sort of a club to be part of, I hear.

‘Fuel’ management

needed to prevent another big fire

• By Julia Evans

ANOTHER MAJOR fire on the

Port Hills will happen.

That’s the stark warning from

an agricultural expert who says

the vegetation on the hills is a

powder keg.

Lincoln University’s Derrick

Moot said active management of

the area was needed to prevent

future events

like the Port

Hills fires,

which burned

for 66 days last

year. Helicopter

pilot Steve

Askin crashed

and died while

Derrick Moot fighting the

blaze.

Two separate fires on Early Valley

Rd and Marleys Hill combined

to one, destroying nine houses and

significantly damaging two.

An investigation concluded

that both fires were possibly deliberately

lit, though it was listed

as undetermined.

But Dr Moot said in his opinion,

the fire could have easily

spread further and taken out

more homes.

“We’re very fortunate we didn’t

get a southerly. It went from a

nor’west to a nor’east, but could

have quite easily blown down to

a lot more housing,” he said.

“They were devastating

enough as it was for the people

involved and we lost someone.

But this was a warning that we

need to have active management

of the peripheral area.”

Dr Moot said simple things such

as maintaining grass growth and

grazing would significantly reduce

the likelihood of another fire.

“We need someone to take responsibility

of the area, whether

that be the Christchurch City

Council, Selwyn District Council

or Environment Canterbury.

There needs to be guidelines for

land owners.”

Dr Moot said if NIWA’s prediction

for a hot, dry November

came through the grass and

weather in the wider Port Hills

area would be in an identical

state as they were before the fires.

He said the effects of climate

change also have an impact.

Rural firefighter Richard

McNamara, who led the aerial

assault on the fire, said there was

always the potential for another

disaster given the “fuels” that

were up on the Port Hills.

2019

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 2 MARCH 2019

“There’s always been fires up

there but the issue is that our

urban dwellings are pushing further

up and also climate change.

We’re going to start having hotter,

drier summers,” he said.

Mr McNamara said it was up

to those who live in the area to

understand the risk as he said

management would be hard to

enforce.

Fire and Emergency New

Zealand manager rural fire Tim

Mitchell said there was not a one

size fits all solution.

“It’s not an easy problem to

resolve. You’ve got to think of

the context of each landowner,”

he said.

Mr Mitchell said if landowners

needed help the councils, FENZ

and other organisations would

help.

In the wake of the fires, FENZ

went through an operational

review. Urban and rural firefighters

are working together

in training, as well as working

with the community to spread

prevention awareness.

In Brief

GREENPARK ASSAULT

Inquiries are still ongoing after

police executed a search warrant

at a property in Greenpark

where a 28-year-old man was

assaulted. Police recovered two

stolen vehicles, stolen property

and about 40 cannabis plants. The

assault occurred at 10.30am last

Saturday. Senior Constable Andy

Williamson said the man’s injuries

were not life threatening.

BIRD CAUSES POWER CUTS

A magpie caused a power pole to

catch fire after it flew into the line

last Tuesday, frying itself in the

process. The Springfield and Sheffield

volunteer fire brigades were

called to the incident at 10.30am

on Kowai Bush Rd. The power pole

was replaced by Orion. Properties

on Kowai Rd, Midland Rd and

Rubicon Rd lost power at 11.05am.

Power was restored at 2.45pm.

POWER LOST

About 1400 residents lost power

in Selwyn on Sunday. Orion

spokeswoman Jessalee MacLean

said the power outages were

“largely” caused by tree branches

and vegetation coming into

contact with power lines as a result

of the stormy weather. Orion crews

progressively restored power.

The original proposal was for

updated proposal achieves a

similar outcome with a smaller

Miner, journo to stay-at-home dad

Matt Salmons’ working life has stretched from mining to being a journalist at Star Media, publisher of Selwyn Times.

Last week he put down his pen and pad to become a stay-at-home dad. We will follow Matt’s new adventure with

10-month-old daughter Vittoria in a weekly column

I’VE ALWAYS wanted to be

a dad.

I haven’t always been great

with kids or anything, but it

seemed like a damn fine idea.

However, I’d never thought

I would like to be a full-time

dad.

So I surprised myself when

I said yes so quickly to my

wife Laura’s question – “would

you want to be a stay-at-home

dad?”

I had zero need to think it

over – it was a decision I made

subconsciously. After all, I love

my darling daughter Vittoria,

what can I say?

With our country’s beloved

first-man Clarke Gayford

leading the charge, I certainly

felt confident in my decision.

And with Mr Gayford

retiring from the illustrious

post, dare I say it, maybe I

could become the nation’s

leading cardigan-draped

crusader?

But as the time for me to

take over draws nearer, the

actual logistics of what’s

coming become apparent.

Laura has spent more than

10 months learning exactly

what to do and when.

Even with all the changes

in baby, she just seems to

know what Vittoria needs and

when she needs it. When she’s

hungry, tired, thirsty or has

a dirty nappy. Well, actually,

that last one’s pretty obvious.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not

saying I’m useless here. A day

or two after Vittoria was born,

I’d already changed 200 per

cent more nappies and been

to more kids events than my

grandfather and he had six

kids.

I’ve also looked after Vittoria

on my tod for extended

periods, too, just not every day

in the same way Laura has.

No, my concern is that I’m

essentially coming into a new

job, with a boss who literally

has no empathy (because I

need to teach her that) and I’m

only qualified to do it parttime.

So I’ll be taking notes and

gearing myself for a new

challenge.

I’m sure having the most

important thing in my life

scream at me for hours

will work as well as onthe-job

training.

CHANGE: Matt

Salmons has a

new full-time job

– looking after

his daughter

Vittoria.

DISCUSSIONS ARE ongoing as

to who will pay to sort out the

footpath and cycleway outside

The Warehouse in Rolleston.

The footpath and cycleway on

Masefield Drive disappear as the

road narrows around a bend.

A meeting took place between

one of the developers and the

district council on Thursday.

The district council and

the developers of Rolleston

Square, where The Warehouse

is sited, have been at odds over

which should pay to fix the problem.

District council chief executive

David Ward has told Selwyn

Times it considers the developers

have responsibilities to resolve the

down on drink driving.

The man, who

is from Auckland,

recorded a breath

alcohol reading of

1438mcg/l. The legal

limit is 250mcg/l for

someone 20-years-old

and over.

Andy Williamson (above) said

having to be met by ratepayers.

Rolleston Square director Lloyd

Bathurst said he did not attend

the meeting which was over road

widening, kerb and channel, a

footpath and cycleway.

Mr Ward said discussions are

continuing to take place between

council and other parties involved

about who is responsible and

which will pay.

“Roading engineers have commenced

planning and design for

the works. The work is planned to

be completed by the end of

February 2019,” he said.

Rolleston Residents’ Association

chairwoman Leonie MacLachlan

said two weeks ago her personal

view was that it needs to be sorted

so it’s safe for everyone.

a member of the public saw the

man driving on Gerald St

in Lincoln after drinking

at a local bar and reported

it to police.

The man stopped

himself and police

processed him for

drink driving shortly

afterwards.

Senior Constable Williamson

said he the man was “clearly

intoxicated” but he was “a little

surprised” his breath alcohol

reading was as high as it was.

He said in spite of the

crackdown, police have not

seen as much of a drop in the

number of drink drivers as

they would like.

“Drivers are still getting caught,”

Senior Constable Williamson said.

Masefield Drive discussions ongoing

PATH TO NOWHERE: The district council and developers

are still in discussions about who is responsible for this part of

Rolleston’s Masefield Drive.

Group not aware of chairman’s role

•From page 1

Mr McKim’s role in the

advisory group initially drew

criticism from Weedons residents

who were not aware of his

involvement in the group.

Mr McKim did not respond to

repeated requests for comment.

WRA committee member

Simon Moore was initially

concerned about Mr McKim

not disclosing his role in the

advisory group.

After the meeting with Mr

McKim, Mr Moore was satisfied

with the chairman’s explanation

that he was part of the advisory

group as an individual.

“Prior to [the Selwyn Times

article], I had no idea that he was

attending these meetings and as

far as I am concerned if he was attending

as an individual, that’s his

business and I couldn’t care less,

that’s his right,” Mr Moore said.

“It is my firm understanding

that the WRA totally opposes

such a quarry, and the attendance

of the chair at these meetings

should in no way been seen

as an endorsement of this foolish

and reckless proposal. He went

there as an individual,” he said.

WRA secretary Gary Doyle

said Mr McKim told residents

he did not represent the WRA at

the advisory group.

CONCERNED: Weedons resident Simon Moore says the

WRA chairman’s role on the Fulton Hogan community

advisory group should not be viewed as local residents

endorsing the quarry proposal.

Mr Doyle criticised Fulton

Hogan for saying the residents’

association engaged with the

advisory group instead of just

Mr McKim.

“He went there as an individual

but that doesn’t mean he is a

representative,” Mr Doyle said.

Mr Doyle also said at the last

WRA meeting that Mr McKim

and Mr Doyle both announced

they would step down as chairman

and secretary early next

year.

It was unrelated to the con-

PHOTO: ANAN ZAKI ​

troversy from the Fulton Hogan

advisory group, Mr Doyle said.

Since the controversy arose,

Fulton Hogan South Island general

manager Craig Stewart said

at the first meeting the advisory

group agreed how it functioned.

“At this meeting, it was agreed

that the members of the group

participated as individuals and

participation does not alter or

limit their ability to participate

in the resource consent process,”

Mr Stewart said.

Nurse’s cancer battle

•From page 1

“Almost immediately that day

she (the doctor) was suspicious

it was something sinister,” Mrs

Philips said.

Within hours tests confirmed

the mother of three had

parosteal osteosarcoma.

Mrs Philips has spent the past

11 years working as an oncology

nurse at Christchurch Hospital

in the ward and the outpatients

area, where her duties included

administering chemotherapy

to patients. She was inspired to

become a nurse because of the

death of her 21-year-old brother,

Dustin, from cancer.

“It’s kind of unbelievable to

think that this has happened

again,” Mrs Philips said.

She says the diagnosis “creates

a lot more fear” because she has

seen “the worst of the worst.”

“It’s been really hard for me

emotionally to stay positive,” Mrs

Philips said.

Her husband Andy is a selfemployed

auto-electrician. She is

worried about the impact cancer

will have on their family. Their

children are aged between threeyears-old

and six months.

“When your self-employed you

don’t get holidays or sick pay so

it’s very difficult for him to take

time off,” she said. More than

$4400 has been donated to Mrs

Anna Philips with Isabella

Philips through a Givealittle page

set up by a group of her friends.

Mrs Philips says she’s grateful

for her work colleagues, friends

and family who have been just

“amazing.”

The money raised through the

Givealittle page will help relieve

the family’s financial pressure,

paying for child care and giving

Mr Philips some time off to help

out.

Quarry meeting didn’t put mind at ease

Templeton

resident

Jolene Eagar

has her say on

the proposed

quarry after

visiting a

recent Fulton

Hogan information evening

IF EMPLOYERS are responsible

to support their staff against

bullying, who is responsible to

protect a community?

There is a significant imbalance

of power when you try to stand

up against a company like Fulton

Hogan.

Many have tried unsuccessfully,

with no, or very little support,

from anyone not personally

affected by resource consent

applications.

What an unfair and unequal

process.

No wonder Fulton Hogan is

taking advantage of the opportunity,

never mind it comes at the

expense of a community.

To say we have made our stance

against the proposed quarry on

Dawsons Rd clear from the beginning

in January, when Fulton

Hogan made the announcement,

is an understatement.

And I fully believe that had

we not taken this public stance

against the quarry, Fulton Hogan

would not have spent all these

months and money to try and

mitigate the risks.

Risks we don’t want mitigated,

but rather eliminated. And what

better way to eliminate than not

have a quarry in the proposed

location on Dawsons Rd at all.

Beginning of 2018, my knowledge

about quarry operations was

non-existent. Apart from driving

past that ugly mess in front of

Christchurch Men’s Prison, I had

no understanding about what

goes on inside those fences.

Boy did my life change. And

it was not only my life that

changed, a whole community had

to try and get their heads around

the technical aspects and dangers

of quarries. Imagine us learning

in a couple of months (while still

managing work and family life)

what the Fulton Hogan experts

spent years studying.

How do you compete against

that? There is just no contest.

I recently had the opportunity

to meet some of the Fulton Hogan

management team as well as

their experts.

What an eye-opener when one

of the managers tried to explain

an online dashboard to me by

saying: “Data goes up into the

cloud and then it comes back

down again.” How patronising.

Do they really think that they

NO QUARRY:

Residents have

been fighting a

long battle to

stop a Fulton

Hogan quarry

being built near

Templeton.

are intellectually that superior to

the Templeton residents?

I asked the noise expert:

“How much noise does a quarry

make?” to which he immediately

answered: “A lot,” just to tell me

a few minutes later that I will be

able to walk my dog right next to

the proposed quarry and I will

barely hear anything.

Keeping in mind he was not

referring to the 1000-plus trucks

that will be driving up and down

our roads. Apparently working

in a 10m deep hole makes all the

difference.

I walked away having a better

understanding of what

Fulton Hogan is proposing but

concerned about the conflicting

information provided by different

people. It seemed as if there is a

lack of commitment at this stage

still around certain decisions and

they were keeping their options

open.

As an ‘affected person’ I was

expecting a more decisive approach

seeing that Fulton Hogan

was there to give us information

about their proposed plans.

I understand the RMA process

and that ongoing consultation and

conditions will affect the outcome,

but to expect us to just take their

word that the best solutions will

be followed is asking more than

what I’m willing to give.

It’s interesting how a meeting

that, from their perspective,

was supposed to put my mind

at ease had the exact opposite

effect.

Suddenly it became all too

real for me. Now I can picture

to a certain extent what they are

proposing and it’s worse than

anything I imagined.

that the hall be rebuilt, but

Sustainability key

to organic farming

SCHOOLS

SELWYN TIMES

There’s something for

everyone in the realm of

organic farming but as far

as Bill Martin is concerned,

it’s all about sustainability.

The Training College

Manager at Lincoln

University’s Biological

Husbandry Unit Organics

Trust (BHU) is happy to see

a surge in enthusiasm for

organic food production

as younger generations

become more aware of

environmental concerns.

He says the growing

popularity of organic

production in recent years

means that graduates are

now taking what they have

learned into a broader

range of sectors.

“It’s not just about

growing, wholesaling

and retailing food anymore. They’re

going into schools and teaching primary

and secondary schoolers about the

importance of sustainable farming and

gardening and really starting to embed the

philosophy into the education system.”

As far as conventional agricultural

practices are concerned, he says farmers

should be encouraged to optimise their

production, rather than maximise it at the

expense of the environment.

“We need to change our agricultural

paradigm and re-evaluate our priorities.”

Mr Martin says those interested in a

career in organics should enrol in the

one-year Diploma in Agri-Food Production

course, which is open to students either

with or without university entrance.

Introduced last year, it includes Tikanga

and Mahinga Kai components and can

lead to employment in organic primary

production or other sectors related

to organics, especially education and

hospitality.

“The course offers a good grounding

in the principles of organic agriculture,

teaching the philosophies and histories

of organics and providing practical

knowledge of how they are applied,” Mr

Martin says.

Apply now for the Diploma in Organic

Agri-Food Production and begin studying

in February 2019.

AWARDS: Clearview Primary School’s year 1 to 4 open team won its division in

the Jump Jam South Island regional competition last week weekend. The team

also received five excellence and merit certificates. The school’s year 7 to 8

open team placed fifth in its division. Other Selwyn schools also excelled in the

contest, with Prebbleton School placing fourth in the year 7-8 novice category

and second in the year 4-8 all boys category. Lincoln Primary School gained a

first in the year 4 to 8 all-boys category, a fifth in the year 4 to 6 open and a fifth

in the year 7 to 8 advanced open category. Leeston Consolidated School was

fifth in the year 4 to 6 advanced open category. ​

PERFORMANCE: Lincoln High School year 9 and 10 drama students are

preparing for the show, A Christmas Carol. They will be performing David

Holman’s interpretation of Charles Dickens’ novella which includes all the

well-loved characters and while the play features ghosts, the emphasis is on

family-friendly entertainment. Four shows will be performed on December 10,

at 10am, 1pm, 6pm and 7.30pm. All profits from the shows will be donated to

KidsCan. Tickets can be purchased online at www.trybooking.co.nz/nv for $5

per ticket or email smc@lincoln.school.nz for block bookings of 10 or more at a

discounted rate of $4 per ticket. •More schools, page 15 & 19

Grow a career

in organics

Lincoln University’s Diploma in Organic Agri-Food Production will prepare

you for work in the organic sector or your own garden or smallholdings. It’s

a full-time, one-year programme that covers the theory and practice behind

contemporary organic agri-food production.

Join us in February to find out what growing organically on an agricultural

scale really means.

Lincoln Club in its 50th year

President’s long-time service to club

Lynn Townsend has

been re-elected

president of the Lincoln

Club as it enters its 50th

year. Karen Pasco talks

to him and looks back on

the club’s history

YOU COULD say volunteering

is in Lynn Townsend’s blood.

He has been involved with the

Lincoln Club since it started out

as the Ellesmere Country Club in

1969, and his family’s association

with Lincoln rugby spans about

40 years.

“My mother was heavily

involved in the community

centre back in the days of the old

hall and my dad was involved

with the RSA,” he said.

So it comes as no surprise

when, as a young man, his

hand went up to help different

organisations within the

community.

“I think that it was just all

part of a community spirit back

in those early days. It was a

very small community. Most

people knew everybody in

Lincoln, so everybody had some

involvement in something,” he

said.

“For me, it was the (Ellesmere

Country) club and the rugby

community duties around a successful seed producing and exporting business.

club, for others it was the fire

brigade or any other of the

services and social activities –

everybody chipped in and did

their bit.”

He joined the Ellesmere

Country Club as a 23-year-old,

and was then elected on to the

committee. Half a century later,

he is still there, but now it’s

called the Lincoln Club.

Between 1982 and 1986 he

was president, was an advisory

trustee in 1987 and was reelected

president in 2003, a

position he has held for the past

15 years.

He has seen the ups and downs

that go hand-in-hand with clubs.

There were great times in the

club’s heyday in the 1970s and

when the doors of The Famous

Grouse “club in the pub” opened

again after it was badly damaged

in the September 4, 2010,

earthquake.

But he has also seen the tough

times, like when the Ellesmere

Country Club closed with debt

and an uncertain future.

“At times, it’s been a strain on

the wife (Carol) and family a bit,

but I’ve learned a lot through

being involved. The people you

meet and the type of business

that it is, you learn things that

you’re not going to learn in

normal everyday life. It’s helped

me with my own business, I

believe. Still now, I don’t think I

ever stop learning.”

Mr Townsend is the founder,

owner and director of Townsend

Seeds International, which

produces and supplies vegetable

seeds, forage and pasture seeds

internationally.

He started out working for

Pyne Gould Guinness about 40

years ago in its seed division but

got fed up with the corporate

culture and constant meetings so

founded his own company.

“I decided that it was a more

constructive way of doing

business.”

He is also the owner of the

Hammer Hardware stores in

Lincoln and Rolleston. Owning

his own businesses has also given

him the flexibility to spend time

on his community duties.

“It just means I have to work at

night for a bit longer,” he says.

Turning tough times into success

IT’S IRONIC the “club in the

pub” is now housed in The

Famous Grouse. It was

actually a group of disgruntled

regulars of that very pub who

set up the Ellesmere Country

Club (now Lincoln Club) back in

1969.

“A meeting was held to see

if they could form a premise

of their own. Somehow

I was elected on to the

committee,” says Lincoln Club

president Lynn Townsend.

Mr Townsend, who was 23

at the time, vividly remembers

there was angst at the very first

meeting.

“There was trouble . . . as

to whether it would be a

working men’s club or

whether it would be mixed

membership with women

involved. Most of the clubs back

in those days were working

men’s, however, there was a

movement starting for females

to be involved so that was

discussed,” he recalled.

It eventually went to the

vote and it was decided the

organisation would be called

the Ellesmere Country Club

with women to be included as

members.

“At that point, a number of

men walked away from the

meeting,” he said.

Membership fundraising saw

them able to raise enough funds

to buy the property on Millpond

Lane – the land which currently

houses the Lincoln Primary

School junior campus.

Then the task was set to raise

funds to build their own club.

Chocolate wheels were run at the

Ellesmere A&P Show. Members

also used the club’s land to grow

potatoes and sell them.

“We also took debentures from

members,” Mr Townsend says.

Eventually, there was enough

money in the coffers to enable

them to get a loan from the BNZ.

The club building, which won

an award for its architectural

design, was opened with great

fanfare on November 30, 1974.

Lincoln Club in its 50th year

Sept 2010 quake: Time to act fast

•From page 17

“We were turning people

away,” said Mr Townsend. “It

was very old-fashioned. We had

a piano accordion band from the

West Coast but we also had Billy

T. James come regularly as well

as The Drifters. When Billy T.

James came, we used to run three

nights in a row and fill the place

every night.”

The club was also the place

where many families and friends

celebrated significant occasions

in their lives with birthdays and

anniversaries regular bookings.

There were also the famous raft

races along the Liffey.

At its height, the club had 1400

members with a waiting list.

The popularity of the club began

to decline in the late 1980s and

early 1990s. Mr Townsend puts it

down to the “chicken coop syndrome”

of the next generation.

“It (the club) was built in the

era of the labour booze bar. It was

ideal for big crowds and entertainment.

When it was a small

group or small event there was

no atmosphere. The younger generation

wanted a more confined

space but the design here didn’t

allow for it.”

As popularity dwindled and

the membership slowly whittled

away, the decision was made to

close the club’s doors. In 2003 the

building was sold to the Selwyn

District Council.

“We went from having significant

debt to having a similar

amount in credit.”

At the 2004 general meeting,

the question was asked whether

the club should be wound up.

“The membership voted overwhelmingly

they wanted it to

continue, in the hope it would be

resurrected in the future.”

The club went into abeyance

for five or six years but members

continued to meet on Tuesday

nights at the Lincoln Bowling

Club, to keep the heart of it alive,

Mr Townsend said.

In early 2009 the lease of The

Famous Grouse Hotel became

available and “the club in the

pub” was formed. The hotel is 100

per cent owned by the Lincoln

Club.

In order for the pub to succeed,

the committee knew it had a

responsibility to run the business

commercially and professionally

public.

The Famous Grouse.

But 18 months after the alterations

were complete, the September

4, 2010, earthquake struck.

The William St-side chimney

collapsed and after standing for

125 years and the main building

was condemned.

Mr Townsend, who was president

at the time, decided the club

had to act fast.

“The thing I learnt about in

the earthquake situation was the

business interruption insurance,

which we fortunately had, was

only for 12 months. I knew if

we didn’t get operational again

within 12 months we were going

to be out on a limb.”

So in collaboration with the

property owner and the insurance

company, they set to work.

Mr Townsend’s brother, Peter,

was the architect and a new Famous

Grouse was designed.

The club continued to operate

out of the back building, a later

addition, with the doors opening

to the brand new pub and accommodation

in March 2012.

Now as 2018 draws to a close

the club is operating the pub

successfully with manager Will

Stock overseeing the day-to-day

running.

The club, which has about 600

members, has recently bought the

land behind the garden bar on

William St with plans for future

development.

“We bought the land because

we see it is a strategic intervention

that gives us some say on

how things are developed around

the hotel,” said Mr Townsend.

There are Tuesday night

club gatherings, and other

events throughout the year for

members. Members also get

discounted drinks.

bright blue eyes, while females

and immature males have

greenish eyes.

They prefer slow moving

streams, pools or larger ponds,

but being a strong flier, they can

be found a long way from water

where they perch on vegetation,

fences or houses. Adults emerge

in October-February.

Females lay cigar-shaped eggs,

1.3-1.5mm long on large sedges,

raupo or floating debris. Mature

larvae are large, 35-39mm long,

and females can be distinguished

by their ovipositor, or egg-laying

appendage.

In Auckland, the life

cycle takes two and sometimes

three years, so development

may be slower in southern

locations.

A TRIO of Lincoln footballers

have returned home with bronze

medals from the Pan Pacific

Masters Games on the Gold

Coast.

Gillian Wilson, Rhonda

Jacques and Amanda Smith

were part of the Waikato

Pioneers team that competed in

the division one women’s 40 and

over tournament.

The team largely consisted of

former Waikato players. Wilson

and Jacques were both part of

the Waikato team that won

back-to-back national titles in

the early 1990s.

The team had a reunion three

years ago and planned to reunite

SPORTS

BRONZE:

A trio of

Lincoln

footballers

helped the

Waikato

Pioneers to

third at the

Pan Pacific

Masters

Games.

Lincoln football masters

take out bronze medals

to compete on the Gold Coast.

Wilson and Jacques recruited

Smith to the team, which also

consisted of two Australian

players.

The Pioneers had three wins

and three losses in group play,

finishing fourth and setting up

a bronze medal match with the

Tassie Strikers.

After losing 0-1 to the Strikers

in group play, the Pioneers

turned the tables to take bronze

1-0.

One of the biggest challenges

for the team came in the form

of temperatures around 30 deg

C each day and 80 per cent

humidity. “We’re just now

used to those conditions . . . we

surpassed anything we expected

because the competition was

really tough with a lot of former

Australia players,” said Wilson.

Darfield High athlete

breaks 33-year-old record

• By Louis Day

A DARFIELD High School

student has broken a 33-year-old

Canterbury high jump record.

Jody McCarthy-Dempsey, 11,

jumped 1.48m – 1cm higher than

the previous grade 11 girls record

set by Kay Nelson in 1985.

It is the third Canterbury

record held by

Jody. She also

holds the year

7 girls discus

record with a

throw of 16.74m

and year 7 girls

shot put with a

throw of 7.7m.

Jody

McCarthy-

Dempsey

Jody said

she enjoys all

athletic events,

except long

distance and was interested in

possibly becoming a decathlete in

the future.

Jody’s high jump coach Brian

Cowan said her application and

attitude is what sets her apart

from others.

“A lot of kids put limits on

themselves, and I think Jody, she

wasn’t at all awed by what she

was doing. She knew exactly what

she was doing, she knew she was

going for a record and she made

the call to put it above the record

herself.”

TRIPLE: Jody McCarthy-Dempsey breaking the Canterbury high

jump grade 11 girls record set by Kay Nelson in 1985.

Cowan has been coaching

high jump since 1981, and

coached Glenn Howard who

competed in the 2000 Olympics

in Sydney.

Howard still holds the New

Zealand men’s high jump record

of 2.3m, as well as records at the

under-20, under-19, under-18 and

under-17 levels.

Cowan sees similarities

between Jody and Howard.

“I guess they both had that

application and willingness to

listen.”

Cowan said the sky is the limit

for Jody and there is no reason

she could not achieve the same

feats as Howard.

“Everybody in my eyes has

that potential. However, people

like Jody and Glenn have the

application and ability to listen to

actually get there.”

PREBBLETON School’s Lucia

Gale has defended her singles

title at the Canterbury primary

and intermediate schools

championships in commanding

fashion.

Lucia dropped just one game

on her way to winning the year

six and under girls singles title at

Wilding Park on Saturday.

The No 1 seed received a first

round bye before winning her

quarter-final against Alex Wylie

4-0, 4-0 and semi-final against

Lily McHarg 4-0, 4-0. In the

final, she defeated No 3 seed

Ruby McPhail 4-1, 4-0.

Lucia and Ruby also teamed

up to win the doubles title. They

defeated Dasha Sanina and Lila

Waghorn 4-1, 4-0 in their first

match to set up a final with No 2

seeds Nishitha Maarka and Alex

Wylie. Lucia and Ruby won the

match 4-2, 5-3.

Think water sense

this summer

Forecasters are expecting a hot and dry summer over the coming months, meaning it’s time to

start thinking about how we use our water in Selwyn.

Meteorologists believe it is highly likely Canterbury will have a drier than average summer.

Weather patterns over the last few months have been varied, with hot and windy days being

interrupted by significant rain.

The Council’s Asset Manager Murray Washington says at the moment water demand is

manageable.

“However, water supplies are placed under pressure during summer as many people decide to

water their lawns and gardens at the same time.”

Water demand peaks between 6–9am and 4–9pm.

The Council is recommending that residents limit garden and lawn watering to after 9pm, to keep

it away from peak usage times and ensure the sun doesn’t quickly evaporate the used water.

If you are considering watering your lawn during the day, it is best to check the conditions and

make sure that it won’t be too hot or windy when you do it, which would reduce the effectiveness

of the water use.

With volumetric charging for water use, consumers are reminded that wasting water can also hit

them in the back pocket.

Mr Washington affirms that with everyone playing their part, we will be able to provide water at a

good pressure all summer long.

New Kiwis celebrate citizenship in Selwyn

Chasing new partners, education opportunities and escaping less than favorable living conditions

were the main themes for the 24 new kiwis sworn in at the latest Citizenship Ceremony held at Selwyn

District Council.

The new citizens hail from 14 different countries, continuing to increase the diversity of Selwyn’s

population. The majority (21) of them are now based in Selwyn Central, but there was also a smattering

from Springs (2) and Ellesmere (1).

The ceremony was a colourful event with numerous new citizens sporting traditional dress from their

native countries.

Harpreet Singh of Southbridge says the event was a hugely enjoyable evening, for a man who spends

his days looking after New Zealanders and helping them relax. Mr Singh has lived the kiwi dream since

arriving, although it wasn’t as straight forward as he had hoped.

“I turned up to study at Avonmore, but no one was at the airport to pick me up,” he says.

“Then things got really confusing when airport staff told me that it was daylight saving, and the clocks

had gone back an hour, we don’t have that in India.”

But since arriving in New Zealand, Mr Singh has made every post a winner. “When I finished studying, I

took up an opportunity with Dominos and saved up for my own business.”

At that point the affable Indian knew hospitality was the career for him, and he leased the Southbridge Tavern.

“I just love being a part of the community, it gives me a great chance to work with the people I live

alongside.” He has since gone on to lease two more pubs, one in Rakaia and the other in Christchurch,

but for the time being Southbridge is home and he is happy there.

Citizenship ceremonies are held monthly at the Council Chambers in Rolleston.

Less speed, less harm

Summer is one of the busiest times of the year for travelling,

socialising and enjoying what our country has to offer, but care still

needs to be taken on our roads.

We often hear safety messages throughout winter about driving to

the conditions, watching for frost and being careful in the rain; but

the arrival of summer can lull us into a false sense of security.

Warm days, hot sun and not a car on the road can make some

drivers feel invincible.

Statistics from the NZ Transport Agency show summer is our

highest risk period for speed-related crashes.

Selwyn District Council Road Safety Coordinator Peter Daly

says there’s a simple message for summer driving — less speed,

less harm.

“People make mistakes on the road, and the best way to decrease

the risk of those mistakes is to decrease the speed at which those

mistakes happen.”

Mr Daly says Canterbury is particularly susceptible to drivers

speeding due to the number of long straight stretches of highway,

and we can easily end up speeding – every driver needs to take

responsibility for their journey and the speed they are doing.

It is also important to show patience while driving long distances.

Being stuck behind a truck or a slow driver may be frustrating,

but you’re better off waiting than attempting a dangerous

passing manoeuvre.

Motoring

• By Ross Kiddie

VEHICLE SALES figures in the

last three months show a definite

trend towards smaller vehicles

and those with small fuel efficient

engines. That’s no surprise, rising

fuel costs always have an effect on

what we choose to buy.

It’s no surprise either that

Mercedes-Benz have joined the

revolution towards fuel efficiency.

That’s been a long-term programme

from this high profile

German luxury car maker, but it

seems even more relevant today

that the company’s most successful

model is now available in

hybrid form here.

Well, let’s get this straight, the

Merc C200 isn’t your traditional

hybrid, it doesn’t have an electric

motor helping provide drive

alongside an internal combustion

engine.

The C200 is classed as a mild

hybrid and, put simply, it has a

turbocharged 1.5-litre four-cylinder

engine that provides drive to

the rear wheels. Where the hybrid

element comes in is through a

48v electrical network named EQ

Boost, it adds around 10kW of

stored energy distributed at the

point where the turbocharger is

working up to full boost on acceleration,

that helps the engine

reach its optimum rev pattern

quickly through the nine-speed

MERCEDES-BENZ C200: Motorsport-inspired technology.

gearshift process. There are also

fuel saving and gliding modes

which recuperates electrical

energy.

In effect, you don’t know any

of this is taking place, there are

no special techniques needed

to drive the new C200, it is still

traditional in most aspects.

The C200 joins a heavily upgraded

model line-up for 2019.

While the exterior shape hasn’t

been altered greatly, there are a

lot of enhancements inside the

car and an increased amount of

technology for safety, as well as

comfort and convenience. Column

space doesn’t allow for comprehensive

detailing, but the most

visual change is the new display

graphics – fully digitised. It can

be configured into three different

themes, classic, sport and progressive.

They work beside a raft

of varying drive modes which the

driver can select at will depending

upon the type of journey, driving

style and road configurations.

The C200 is a clever car, and

if you are thinking in the first

instance that just 1497cc doesn’t

seem enough, you had better

think again, the engine is rated

with 135kW and 280Nm, and

it is one of the smoothest fourpot

drivelines you’ll ever get to

encounter.

A lot of that is to do with the areas

where power is developed. As

mentioned, the EQ Boost system

fills in the gaps where power is

building up, and with peak power

arriving at just 5800rpm, and

maximum torque spreading from

3000rpm to 4000rpm, there is no

point where request to throttle

pressure doesn’t arrive.

Acceleration is strong, and

you would expect that from

Mercedes-Benz. It claims a 7.7sec

standstill to 100km/h time, and

an 80km/h to 120km/h time of

6sec is also achievable. The C-

Class in this form isn’t blisteringly

fast, but it is quick enough, and it

gobbles up highway kilometres effortlessly;

its balance and poise is

remarkable, and as you drive you

feel so much part of the car.

It also has remarkable fuel usage

figures. Mercedes-Benz claims

a 6.4-litre per 100km (44mpg)

combined cycle figure; the test

car constantly listed close to that,

and at 100km/h the trip computer

readout sits around 4l/100km

(70mpg) with the engine turning

over at just 1500rpm in top gear.

If you analyse the technical

aspects of these figures and

Fire rages, homes at risk

combine them with the brilliance

of the vehicle as a whole, the

C-Class is a seriously special car.

Well, at the price it has to be, the

C200 sedan lists at $73,900 and

the evaluation car was carrying

around $5000 of extras. Take into

account you can get this driveline

in an estate (station wagon),

which adds $3000.

Rear-wheel-drive always signifies

an involving driving experience,

and the C200 is true to that.

There is a secure feel to the road

and that, along with steering that

is decisive, adds to accuracy when

presented with a quick corner or

two.

I took the evaluation car on

a route running parallel to the

Selwyn River. There aren’t a lot of

corners on those roads but there

are a few tricky sections which

I’ve tracked down over the years.

The C200 enjoys the twists and

challenges, it feels taut and firmly

planted.

Another year rolls around

and the Mercedes-Benz motorsport

team has clinched both

the formula one driver’s and

manufacturer’s title. The formula

not dissimilar to how the hybrid

system works in the C200. It’s

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Subdividing with

the professionals

Subdividing can be a very

effective means of maximising

the value of a property.

Survus Consultants are surveyors,

planners and engineers with all the

necessary expertise to advise on the

specialist issue of subdivision.

What exactly is a subdivision? It is the

term for splitting a piece of land into

individual allotments. Subdivisions

can be as basic as a two lot residential

development where homeowners

are wanting to subdivide a section to

downsize their property. Or it can be

as complex as a 300+ lot development,

which Survus Consultants has seen a

number of in Christchurch since the

2010/2011 earthquake series.

There can also be rural lifestyle

developments, farm boundary

adjustments, unit title or change of tenure

subdivision.

Survus Consultants contract manager

Craig Hurford says, “No matter the size

of the subdivision or its location - in the

city or in the country – we have a clear

message – come and see us early on in

the process. We have been involved with

subdivisions since 1957, so I think we can

say we are pretty knowledgeable about

what is required and what the potential

pitfalls and issues are.”

Every subdivision is unique - no one

methodology fits all, often because of

the criteria specified in the relevant

local Council’s district plan. Under the

Resource Management Act each Council

developed its own plan with different

subdivision rules. We have the expertise

to apply the rules to a particular property

to optimise the potential, while keeping in

mind the importance of good sustainable

development.

“Using a professional is critical,”

says Craig, “There are lot of additional

requirements that we can advise on

and provide services for such as HAIL

(Hazardous Activities and Industries

List) Report for instance, or geo-technical

and engineering reports. All of these can

affect the cost of the proposed subdivision

or the length of time it will take to

complete.”

Survus offer a free onsite consultation

and fee proposal for subdivisions

anywhere in Canterbury. “We then work

through the project from beginning to

end starting with the bare block of land,

applying for all necessary consents,

completing the land transfer process

and project managing the development

until the subdivision is complete. We

aim to make the whole process as easy as

possible for our clients.”

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Hill country development risks

and opportunities highlighted

Extensive studies commissioned as part

of the Sustainable Hill Farming Tool project

have found that farmers are increasingly

using hill country forage crops and pastures

to finish stock, and that the increased

erosion risk is being partly mitigated by

farming practices.

However, the studies, and an extensive

literature search, also found that some

farmers had difficulty assessing the potential

environmental impact and the financial

return of hill country development, due to

the unpredictability of sediment loss and

the ongoing costs often required.

The Sustainable Hill Farming Tool

(SHiFT) project seeks to determine ways

to provide landowners with information

about the best ways to address these

concerns, says Environment Canterbury’s

zone delivery manager Paul Hulse.

“The project team commissioned

three related studies to gain a clearer

understanding of farmers’ hill country

development practices,” he says.

“Initial interviews were held with 150

hill country farmers in Canterbury and the

Manawatu, and followed up by in-depth

interviews with 16 farmers, advisors and

helicopter pilots focusing on the use of

helicopters for developing hill country land.

At the same time, AgResearch prepared a

report collating relevant research about the

environmental impacts of forage cropping

in hill country.”

Paul Hulse says that the findings will be

used to help develop a free advisory tool for

farmers and advisors.

“Environment Canterbury recognises

that forage crops are an important part of

our farming systems. However, it needs to

be managed in such a way that sediment

does not enter waterways. We’re expecting

the tool to identify high and low risk

areas on a property, estimate the potential

sediment losses, and provide a reference

guide to select effective management

practices and mitigation measures so that

sediment losses to waterways and estuaries

can be minimised.”

A growing awareness

Farm consultant Dave Lucock of The

Agribusiness Group and a member of the

Steering Committee assisting the SHiFT

project team to develop the new tool,

says farmers need to be aware of the risks

associated with any development on hill

country, and plan to avoid or mitigate those

risks.

“It is no longer acceptable to have large

quantities of sediment flowing from poorly

managed winterfeed paddocks. However,

this research demonstrates that only

slightly more than half of farmers consider

sediment loss factors before developing

their hill country pasture,” he says.

“Today, we’re operating under

environmental farming limits, and most

farmers have a Farm Environment Plan.

We expect that this tool will help farmers

through the hill country development

process so that they get the best results

for both their farm business and the local

environment.”

Development of the Sustainable Hill

Farming Tool will be informed by the

farmer survey, as well as the AgResearch

review of research into soil losses from

grazed forage crops.

Gardening

Local

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

Use compost to ensure continuous flowering

NOVEMBER IS one of the

most enjoyable months to

spend in the garden, with

abundant growth everywhere.

That means there are

plenty of tasks to keep

gardeners busy.

Vege garden

All summer vegetables

should have been planted

by now, including beans,

beetroot, cabbage, celery,

corn, cucumber, courgettes,

lettuce, peas, pumpkin, radish,

spring onions, spinach,

tomatoes, silver beet and

zucchini.

Stagger plantings to

extend the time for harvesting

and keep developing

vegetables well-watered

without over-watering.

Apply side dressings of vegetable

fertiliser, especially

to gross feeders like sweet

corn. Add a layer of mulch

or pea straw to help water

retention and reduce the

infestation of weeds.

On tomato plants, there

are laterals which are

shoots that appear between

the junction of a leaf and

the stem. You want to create

a strong tomato plant

with a good structure, so

remove laterals from the

stems up to at least 1m

from the ground and keep

removing them regularly

until the plant is around

1.3-1.4m tall. Use sharp secateurs

and ensure they are

clean before you start. Be

sure to stake your tomato

plants well.

Herb garden

New season herbs should

be planted by early November

including frost-tender

basil. Remember that herbs

grow best in fine, welldrained

soil in a full-sun

site. They will struggle to

grow in heavy clay soils or

in shady parts of the garden.

Summer annuals

Summer flowering

annuals should be in

vigorous growth by now.

This includes alyssum,

ageratum, aster, candytuft,

cornflower, cosmos,

marigold, nemesia, phlox,

portulaca, petunias, salvias,

strawflower and zinnias.

The key to continuous

flowering over summer is

through good preparation

with the addition of

compost to the existing

soil before planting.

Dead heading (removal

of finished flowers) helps

promote continuous

flowering throughout

the season. Water plants

regularly, especially when

young seedlings are first

planted.

Fruit trees

Fruit trees are in full

growth mode, so apply a

side dressing of fruit tree

fertiliser, especially to

young trees. Irrigate newly

planted trees deeply to help

establish a strong, sturdy

root system and mulch to

reduce water loss.

Containers

With home gardens

reducing in size, container

gardening is even more

popular. Multifunctional,

they can be used for growing

herbs, mini-veges, or

provide a splash of colour

when planted with summer

annuals. Always use

fresh container mix when

planting.

MULTIFUNCTIONAL: Container gardening is popular. Keep your blooms well

nourished.

Juicy Lemons

need plenty of water

To ensure you have enough juicy lemons, keep

the water up to your plants while they are in

flower now. Dry lemons are directly related to

lack of water as the crop develops over summer.

A layer of mulch works wonders, apply mulch

after watering the soil. A top up of fertiliser will

do them wonders as well.

Preparing for the dry season

If you haven’t already got bark on your garden, add a layer of

organic compost now, and mix it through your existing soil. Keep

the watering up over the next few weeks, then look to add

your bark mulch before the heat really fires up. If you have got

a thin layer of bark, try and boost it up to a good 10cm as this

will help get the best results. If you have already added your

bark – well done! You will need to keep the watering up now

to stay ahead of the game. Water is essential for healthy plant

growth and development. Establish a good watering routine,

ensuring you give your plants a good deep soak every few days

rather than a light sprinkling every day. Weeding isn’t exactly

the most enjoyable part of gardening, but skipping out of doing

it is going to be costly for your plants. Not only do they look

unsightly, they take up a lot of nutrients and water that your

plants need, as well as fight for space. Dedicate time to remove

them as soon as they pop up, it will seem less of a task if you

do it that way rather than letting them build up over a month

or more.

SAFER ACCESS TO INTELLIGRO

Heading north on Main South Road you will use the

Weedons Ross Road off ramp. Manion Road is just before

the railway lines on the left-hand side.

If you are heading south along Main South Road, then turn right into Curraghs

Potatoes will need to have the soil mounded up around the

tops of the rows now. This helps to encourage a larger crop.

Early spuds like Swift and Rocket may be ready for harvest.

Once the crop flowers and the stems begin to wither it

indicates the crop is ready. Potatoes require plenty of water as

the crop begins to develop, and fertiliser to help them develop.

A new pool an appealing

prospect for homeowners

Now that the weather is warming up, for many homeowners the idea of

having a pool in the back garden seems very appealing. This is the busiest

time for installing pools before Christmas, but there is still plenty of time

to get things underway for the first few months of the New Year.

As Julie Hastings of Lagoon Pools points out, “We have been enjoying

longer swimming months for a number of years and people are still

swimming up to the end of April.”

It is also a great idea to have the pool installed mid-year, so there is

no rush and it will be ready as soon as the warm weather hits, Julie says.

“We are encouraging customers to order a pool installation out of

season and offering special deals for them to do that.”

Lagoon Pools install pools in sizes to suit both large and small sections,

and they range from three metres to 12 metres in length, and in various

widths.

“While large pools are great for bigger spaces, small pools in smaller

spaces can still be used for exercise and relaxation,” Julie says.

Additional features, such as pool lighting and fountains can enhance

the pool area, transforming it into an extended living space where family

and friends can relax in the outdoors, she says.

A pool takes around five days to install, and the finishing touches

can take four to eight weeks, depending on the design. Not only does

Lagoon Pools install the pool, they can offer the complete package with

the additional features included.

“It is always very satisfying to see a project through from concept to

finish, turning a vision into a reality for our customers,” Julie says.

To enquire about pool installation and the out-of-season offers,

contact Lagoon Pools, phone 0800 927 282 or 349 2160. For more

information on their range of pools and other features, visit the

website, lagoonpools.co.nz.

HOME PROFESSIONALS

Irrigation vital in

hot, dry weather

SELWYN TIMES

Rolleston College students

working on their garden.

With the Met service forecasting a long, hot

summer for Canterbury, homeowners will

want to make full use of their outdoor areas

to entertain family and friends, so having

lawns and gardens in tip-top condition will

be a priority.

Phil Hudson of Freeman Irrigation

advises that now is the best time to have

maintenance work done on irrigation

systems so they are in good working order to

meet summer demand. This will also prevent

the inconvenience and additional costs of

having landscaping repaired if problems are

discovered and need fixing during summer.

“Some irrigation system problems are

easily fixed, but they have to be identified

to be repaired,” Phil says, “so now is the

ideal time to book in for maintenance and

servicing.”

The most important part of keeping an

irrigation system in good working order is

having regular maintenance done on the

sprays, rotors and solenoid valves, Phil says.

Some of the basic problems commonly

encountered are:

- Clogged sprinklers

- Leaking sprinklers and valves

- Obstructed sprinklers

- Leaking/blocked solenoid valves

- Overspray onto footpaths, streets or

buildings

- Design problems

- Missing nozzles

- Pipe leaks or breaks

Smart controls for irrigation systems

are convenient for homeowners, and many

people have been asking about those, Phil

says.

“We have a range of smartphone controllers

and rain sensors that can be fitted to most

systems, allowing you to have easy control

from anywhere.

“Also, if you wish to save money and

conserve water, a good rain sensor is an

affordable solution. We can supply and fit the

Wireless Rain-Clik Sensor that automatically

shuts off your sprinkler system, so you don’t

have to worry if you are away from home

when it rains.”

As well as playing a key role in the local

economy, Phil also supports the community.

He has recently donated and installed an

irrigation system at Rolleston College, where

the students are developing a vegetable

and fruit tree garden, with the focus on

sustainability.

The Cancer Society has also had an

irrigation system installed in the grounds

of its new Rolleston building, courtesy of

Freeman Irrigation.

new systems and products, email

HOME PROFESSIONALS

Security

over summer

Lock your vehicle

when left outside.

Even when at home, it pays to be mindful that not everyone

roving the neighbourhood has honest intentions.

The last thing we need when arriving

back from a summer holiday is to find our

home has been broken into. The thought of

someone entering uninvited is concerning

enough in itself. Losing precious possessions

and those with special meaning, especially

where they hold irreplaceable memories,

is sufficient reason to take and secure our

homes while away.

The inconvenience of having our

belongings taken from our motor vehicles

not to mention being without wheels if our

car is stolen, is another reason for being

security minded.

Here are a few reminders of ways

you can increase your security.

Your home:

• Always lock your house when going out.

• If you have a house alarm, use it. Do not

share the main code with anyone else. Set

up a separate code for your teenagers so

it can be changed from time to time and

a temporary code for guests.

A lockable

security

door could

be fitted.

• Lock all firearms away in a secure place,

keeping the key where it cannot easily be

accessed.

• Lock away garden tools as they may be

used by a would-be thief for breaking

into your home.

• Keep your garage door shut when you are

in other parts of the house.

• Never leave windows open when sleeping,

if they might be easily accessed.

• Shut windows accessible from the street,

when elsewhere in the home.

• Lock the front door when working in your

back garden and even when inside. If

wanting to open this door for ventilation,

a lockable security door might be fitted.

Your motor vehicle:

• Lock your vehicle whenever you leave it,

even when it is parked up your driveway.

• Never leave your keys in your vehicles

when it is parked in your driveway or

garage.

• Avoid leaving valuables in your vehicle.

If you must, hide them out of sight

preferably in the boot.

When going on holiday:

• Ensure all windows and doors are secure

before heading away.

• Organise a neighbour, friend or family

member to collect your mail and check

your property is okay.

• If you do not have an automated

irrigation system, ask someone to turn

your sprinkler on when the plants

Not everyone roving your

neighbourhood has honest

intentions.

need pepping up. It will give

the impression that someone is

home.

• If away longer than a week,

organise for your front lawn to be

mowed.

• Ensure your pool is secure with

no easy access.

While locking the door and

setting the alarm may seem like a

hassle, especially if just popping

down the road, it helps ensure our

home and possessions are safe. This

simple act may save the heartache

of finding your privacy has been

invaded and with it precious or

even just handy items stolen.

Navigating the

multi-offer process

Whether you’re buying or selling a

property it’s a good idea to learn as much

as you can about the different methods

used in New Zealand. One that confuses

a lot of people is the multi-offer process,

where all interested prospective buyers are

encouraged to submit their best offer and

the seller can choose whichever one looks

most attractive.

“This process is designed to give all

potential buyers an equal shot,” explains

Real Estate Authority chief executive Kevin

Lampen-Smith.

“The process is not like an auction where

an agreement is automatically formed with

a successful bidder. The seller is not obliged

or required to accept any particular offer

in this situation; they may accept one offer,

reject all offers, or choose to negotiate

further with one particular party.”

The actual form that a multi-offer process

takes can differ from agency to agency – it’s

not defined in law or set by the Real Estate

Authority (REA).

A multi-offer process can only be

described as such when there is more than

one offer in writing – a real estate agent

is not allowed to pretend that there are

genuine competing offers if they do not

exist.

“Agents are expected to clearly explain the

process and any relevant paperwork to all

prospective buyers and sellers,” Lampen-

Smith says.

“If you’re unsure about anything, ask

the agent to clarify it or seek advice from

your lawyer. It’s far better to do this at

the beginning than face confusion and

disappointment further down the track.”

All the offers are presented fairly in this

process and a real estate agent must not

favour one over another.

All prospective buyers should know that

they need to put their very best offer on the

table, Lampen-Smith says.

Some real estate agencies will hold on to

the first offer they receive while they check

for others, effectively creating a multi-offer

process.

“This may feel unfair if you think that your

offer should ‘win’ because it was in first,

but it’s worth remembering that the agent

is working for the seller. Their primary

responsibility is to get the seller the best

outcome, considering both price and any

conditions from buyers such as settlement

date or being subject to finance.”

If as a prospective buyer you are told

that a sale is a multi-offer process but the

situation later changes to a stand-alone

offer, you must be told about this and get

a chance to review your offer and submit a

new one.

How to give a multi-offer

process your best shot

1. Do as much homework on a property as

you can before making the offer so you

minimise any risks. This is important for

many reasons; not least because it may

help you eliminate some conditions and

help you determine what your ‘best’ offer

will be.

2. When thinking about the offer, it’s worth

considering how you would feel if you

found out that a higher offer had been

accepted ahead of yours. If you think you

would be prepared to pay more, then it’s

better to make that decision at the start

than when it’s too late.

3. There is often confusion around

timeframes in a multi-offer process,

especially if a potential buyer thinks they

are the only people who are interested.

Talk to the real estate agent marketing the

property to make sure you are clear about

any deadlines and about the sale process

as a whole.

4. Remember that the highest offer is not

always the winner. If you were a seller,

would you prefer a higher offer or one

with fewer conditions? It’s impossible to

guess what kind of offer will suit a seller’s

particular circumstances, but it’s a good

idea to eliminate as many barriers to a

swift and easy sale as you can.

5. Want to get in early? Include an expiry

time on your offer. This kind of sunset

clause means the agent must present it to

the seller so they can consider it before it

expires.
