THIS IS what Rolleston’s new

$22.2 million library and

community centre, Te Ara Ātea,

will look like from Tennyson St.

THe district council has been

gifted the name for the facility

by Te Taumutu Rūnanga.

THe name means “the

unobstructed trail to the world

and beyond” and reflects the

role of the new facility as a

place for learning, gathering,

connecting, exploring and

celebrating the district’s heritage

and people.

on what is currently part

Construction of Te Ara

Ātea is expected to start

in halfway through next

year.

Te Taumutu Rūnanga

chairwoman Julie

Robilliard said the

rūnanga is delighted to

be supporting the Selwyn

community with the new name.

“It is with great pleasure that

Te Taumutu Rūnanga gifts

the name of Te Ara Ātea to

the new Rolleston library and

community centre,” she said.

“Meaning the

unobstructed trail

to the world and

beyond, Te Ara

Ātea is particularly

appropriate because the

Rolleston area was part

of a network of ancient

trails.”

Mayor Sam

Broughton said the district

council has been working

closely with Te Taumutu as a key

partner during the development

and design stages of the new

“Our partnership with Te

of this project from the outset,

as we have worked to ensure

the new centre represents the

breadth and depth of Selwyn’s

heritage and community,” he

said.

“We’re privileged that the

Te Ara Ātea – which is so

No word

on who

will pay

to finish

Masefield

Drive

• By Emily O’Connell

THE DISTRICT council won’t

say if ratepayers are picking

up the tab for roadworks in

Masefield Drive, Rolleston.

The footpath and cycleway

outside The Warehouse in

Rolleston ends as the road

narrows around a bend.

The district council and the

developers of Rolleston Square,

where The Warehouse is sited,

have been at odds over which one

should pay to fix the problem.

District council asset

engineer transportation Mark

Chamberlain said work was done

last week to patch potholes and

widen an area at the entrance to

the shopping centre.

“It is to hold the seal until the

kerb and channel, seal widening

and other needed work is done

after Christmas,” he said.

Mr Chamberlain said there will

also be an edge line painted to

give better delineation for drivers.

Selwyn Times has repeatedly

asked the district council whether

ratepayers or developers are

paying to fix the patch of road.

from the editor’s desk

AS FAR as questions go, it’s a fairly simple

one. But for some reason the district

council won’t give us an answer.

I’m referring to our ongoing coverage

of the patch-up job needed on Masefield

Drive after the footpath and cycleway stopped abruptly during

the development outside Rolleston Square.

The district council and developers have been at odds over

who should pay to have the work completed.

We’ve repeatedly asked the district council who is paying.

They keep telling us they’ve got nothing more to add than what

they said a coupe of weeks ago, which really didn’t tell us much.

My money is the ratepayers will be paying for it. Hopefully,

the council will let us know – and then we will let you know.

Wealthy backer

wanted to join quarry battle

• By Anan Zaki

A RESIDENT involved in

the fight against the planned

quarry near Weedons hopes a

wealthy backer will support the

campaign against it.

Weedons Residents’

Association committee member

Simon Moore says people living

near the site don’t have the

money to fight the proposed

Fulton Hogan quarry.

Mr Moore expects the fight

against the quarry to cost at least

$100,000.

A resource consent lodged

with Environment Canterbury

shows Fulton Hogan wants to

operate a quarry 6am-6pm,

Monday-Saturday.

Fulton Hogan has also

proposed running night

operations 150 days of the year.

Full quarry activities would

operate from 6pm-10pm and

truck movements would be

carried out from 10pm-6am.

“What you need is what the

Yaldhurst people got, a nice

person to donate some money,

like Kypros Kotzikas. It would

be nice if someone was willing to

do that,” Mr Moore said.

FUND: Weedons Residents’ Association committee member Simon Moore hopes a wealthy

supporter could help fill funding shortfalls in the fight against the Fulton Hogan quarry.

Mr Kotzikas, who backed

opponents of the Road Metals

quarry in Yaldhurst, is the

owner of United Fisheries.

But regardless of the money,

the residents will not stop their

campaign against the quarry, he

said.

The quarry will be on a 170ha

site at Curraghs, Dawsons, Jones

and Maddisons Rds.

“This is the problem with

David and Goliath – you’re

fighting somebody who is

making record profits,” Mr

Moore said.

“What most of us intend to

do is donate to the Templeton

Residents’ Association

[individually],” he said.

Fulton Hogan says the total

life of the quarry is expected to

be about 30 to 40 years and rock

will be taken from a depth of

2019

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 2 MARCH 2019

10m below ground.

The quarry activities are

anticipated to start in 2020,

should Fulton Hogan receive the

necessary resource consents.

Environment Canterbury and

the Selwyn District Council have

until tomorrow to check the

resource consent application for

completeness. A further update

on the application is expected

after tomorow.

$195m mammoth motorway

It’s set to make

commuting safer and

easier by halving travel

time and reducing fatal

and serious crashes by

40 per cent. Julia Evans

checks in to see how

work is progressing on

the Southern Motorway

upgrade

MORE THAN 500,000 cu m

of earth and $195 million is

being poured into upgrading the

Southern Motorway.

The new 7.5km motorway will

extend from Halswell Junction

Rd to near Robinsons Rd on State

Highway 1 so commuters can

bypass Hornby and Templeton.

From Robinsons Rd to Rolleston,

Main South Rd will double to

four-lanes for 5km.

The project should halve time

between Christchurch and

Rolleston from 30min to 15min.

It is also expected to reduce

fatal and serious crashes by 40

per cent by upgrading the third

and seventh most dangerous

intersections in Canterbury –

Weedon Ross Rd and SH1, as well

as Shands and Marshs Rds.

Those are just the two key

features of the mammoth project

that has more than 20 components

and is on track for its

February 2020 opening.

New Zealand Transport

Agency principal project

manager Geoff Griffiths said

the most recent milestone was

northbound traffic on Main

South Rd switched onto the new

SH1 lanes last month.

Southbound traffic also made

the move last month.

“The traffic switch on SH1

will see some local road closures

in place from this week.

Larcombs Rd at Main South Rd

will be closed for around four

weeks and Berketts Rd will be

closed at Main South Rd until

the new southbound lanes on

SH1 are opened in 2019,” he

said.

“That will be the next biggest,

most visible stage of work when

we move all the two-way traffic.”

After that, work will start

on moving 10 58-tonne bridge

beams will be craned into place

at the Weedons Rd interchange.

They will complete the bridge,

which already has 10 beams in

place.

“At the other end of things,

we’ll be starting on Springs Rd,”

Mr Griffiths said.

That work will take the project

into its final year.

“A new roundabout is being

constructed at the intersection of

Weedons Ross/Jones Rd, which

is due to be completed in the first

half of 2019.”

This year, work largely concentrated

on the Shands Rd

interchange. But there was also

considerable work at the Halswell

Junction Rd end of the project

with 16 piers installed for the

interchange.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Mr Griffiths said the biggest

challenge of the project has so far

been the “unknown.”

“Weather has been wetter than

average for the last couple of

years,” he said.

“And just dealing with the

unknown. We’ve found a few

old dumps that have been

contaminated with asbestos.”

But in spite of the weather

and unearthing of old dumps

that no one knew about, he said

everything was on track for the

early 2020 deadline.

“We’ve got this summer and

half of next summer, which is

a good thing. Not only is it the

rain we have to worry about, the

weather does need to be warm

and dry for the type of work we’re

doing.”

Plus Mr Griffiths said there

should be no more former

rubbish dumps to discover.

While the project will reduce

time and crashes, it will support

the south-west’s economic

growth with more than 35,000

people expected to move there in

the next 30 years.

As well as improving access

between Lyttelton Port, the city

centre and the industrial south.

During the project, more

than 570 southern grass skinks

are also being recovered and

rehomed.

Its opening will coincide with

the completion of the Northern

Corridor.

“This job and the

Northern Corridor are the last

two big jobs in Christchurch that

we’re working on,” Mr Griffiths

said.

The project was mooted in

2002. It was part of a study that

looked at the long-term transport

needs for the south-west of the

city.

But it wasn’t until 2010 when

the concept was open for public

consultation. After design

and detailed design stages,

construction began in November

2016.

It is part of the Government’s

programme.

PROJECT WORK

•Main South Rd will be four lanes north of Rolleston to

Robinsons Rd. A new section of motorway will be built

from Robinsons Rd to join the Southern Motorway at

No word on

who will pay for

Masefield Drive

•From page 1

Two weeks ago, district

council chief executive David

Ward said discussions are

continuing between the council

and other parties involved about

who is responsible and which will

pay.

When asked last week who was

paying for the just-completed

repairs, the district council

wouldn’t say.

Rolleston Square director Lloyd

Bathurst did not want to comment

on the issue.

Mr Ward has told Selwyn Times

it considers the developers have

responsibilities to resolve the

current situation to avoid costs

having to be met by ratepayers.

Rolleston Residents’ Association

chairwoman Leonie MacLachlan

said her personal view was that the

“progress was minimal.”

“Keeping up with the filling of

potholes hasn’t been done in a

timely manner,” she said.

Mrs MacLachlan said the area

is “such an eyesore” and for road

users and residents’ safety, “it

needs to be addressed as soon as

possible.”

Mr Ward said the work on

Masefield Drive is planned to be

completed by the end of February.

Cancer battler ‘determined to live’

• By Emily O’Connell

A ROLLESTON mother is

hopeful alternative treatments

could help save her life.

Nina Rodger, 36, was

diagnosed with breast cancer

almost three years ago and has

since received chemotherapy,

radiation, undergone a

mastectomy and numerous

operations.

In spite of this, the Stage 4

cancer continues to spread in

her body and so she’s turned

to alternative methods to help

– including a change of diet,

natural treatments, supplements

and oils.

Last week Mrs Rodger aslo

started Intravenous vitamin C

treatments, which aims to boost

the immune system.

The mother-of-two’s journey

with cancer started about three

years ago when she noticed some

differences in her left breast.

Having had cysts on her breast

10 years earlier, Mrs Rodger

didn’t think much of it.

But after speaking to her husband

Bruce, she decided to get it

checked out by her doctor.

When she was told it was

cancer, Mrs Rodger went home

to her husband who was looking

after their two children and recalls

saying: “I’m going to live.”

Determined to do just that,

Mrs Rodger has dramatically

changed her diet, initially

cutting out meat and sugar and

now she’s “juicing constantly”

and eating “mostly” raw food.

“I’m just determined. I don’t

care what they [doctors] say,

people make it through even at

stage 4. I’m doing everything

I can with supplements and

alternative therapies and diet,”

she said.

Mrs Rodger says both her

“strong faith” and “amazing”

husband have helped her

through the difficult times over

the past few years.

The different treatments she

is using cost about $800-$900 a

week and although her parents

have been helping where they

can, she says finances are “super

tight.”

“There’s a lot of money raised

for breast cancer and research

and support for families, and I

didn’t see anything, I wasn’t offered

anything, I think the only

thing I was offered was the Look

NEEDING

HELP:

Rolleston

mother Nina

Rodger, with

her four-yearold

daughter

Valentina,

is hoping

alternative

methods will

help in her

battle with

breast cancer. ​

Good Feel Better, which was

amazing,” Mrs Rodger said.

In the last couple of weeks,

her friends set-up a Givealittle

page to help with the ongoing

costs.

So far, more than $4100 has

been donated.

“It’s so humbling. I think what

you don’t realise is how loved

you are,” Mrs Rodger said.

$9500 donated

to nurse

• By Emily O’Connell

MORE THAN $9500 has been

donated through a Givealittle

page to Rolleston oncology nurse

Anna Philips.

The 36-year-old, pictured with

her family above, was diagnosed

with bone cancer while on maternity

leave after having her third

child.

Test results show Mrs Philips’

cancer is contained within her

left femur. But a surgical biopsy

confirmed it is the “more aggressive

type.”

Mrs Philips is currently undergoing

10 weeks of chemotherapy

treatment.

Once completed, she will have

a surgery to remove the cancer

from her left femur followed by 20

more weeks of chemotherapy.

SELWYN RESIDENTS are

more positive about their quality

of life than people living in

Christchurch and Waimakariri,

according to the latest Wellbeing

Survey.

But they are the least satisfied

with their ease of access to the

natural environment.

The Canterbury District

Health Board released its survey

from May, done every six

months, to measure earthquake

recovery across the region.

It found 90 per cent of people

living in the district rated

their quality of life positively,

compared with 82 per cent in

Waimakariri District and 79 per

cent in Christchurch.

Selwyn District residents

generally have more positive

findings in key well-being indicators,”

the survey said.

Rolleston youth worker

Courtney Forrest, who has lived

in Selwyn for almost six years,

says he would rate his quality of

life positively also.

He believes the district

provides lots of “amazing” opportunities.

“People feel a bit more freedom

to make their mark . . . whether

that be sport, recreation, I think

there’s something out here for

everybody,” he said.

Mr Forrest said the “majority”

of the people he interacts with

are also positive about their

quality of life in Selwyn.

“You always get the odd one

that doesn’t like the growth and

the busyness of it but I think that

statistic is really true,” he said.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the district council is “very

happy” to see residents enjoy a

high quality of life.

Greater Christchurch

Psychosocial Governance Group

chairwoman Evon Currie is

wanting “local decision makers”

to explore the data and use it

to positively influence the wellbeing

of its population.

Mayor Broughton said its

operational team will be looking

at the survey results and working

on ways to continue to enhance

the lives of residents.

Seventy-eight per cent of

Selwyn residents are satisfied

with their ease of access to the

natural environment. This falls

behind Waimakariri on 87 per

cent and Christchurch at 80 per

cent.

When it came to emotional

well-being, on average Selwyn

residents rated themselves “significantly

higher” than Christchurch

City and Waimakariri

residents.

The survey also found Selwyn

residents are the most satisfied,

90 per cent, with the overall

quality of their houses in terms

of warmth, insulation, heating,

moisture levels and weather

tightness, when compared with

Waimakariri, 85 per cent, and

Christchurch 77 per cent.

Just under 70 per cent of

Selwyn residents said they were

satisfied with the ease of access

to suitable transport to daily

activities. This is lower than

the 74 per cent of Christchurch

residents who said they were

satisfied, but higher than

Waimakariri on 64 per cent.

Santa photo will need editing

I’M INTO week two of my stayat-home-dad

adventure and I’ve

been treated to another series of

firsts.

Vittoria saw her first live crab

first little walk hand-in-hand

(just in the lounge) and I even got

My favourite firsts though?

First photo with Father

Christmas and first time going to

an activity where other stay-athome-dads

turned up.

If you have zero clue of what

being the odd one out feels like,

being a dad at a baby activity is

normally a great introduction.

In my experience, outside of

weekends and public holidays,

dads at said events are proverbial

unicorns; rare and naturally herd

animals.

Recently I took Vittoria to our

first Toes and Giggles session

as the stay-at-home parent. It’s

a music and movement thing;

songs, toys, other babies with

coffee and biscuits after.

I was pleased to see two other

dads (also in their first couple

of weeks on the job so to speak)

come in. It will be cool to have

some contemporaries at some of

the same events to share stories

and compare notes with.

revelation to light.

and getting a chance to get

Going by Vittoria’s face when

Upgrade proposed

for Kirwee reserve

• By Emily O’Connell

A NEW or updated playground,

dog exercise area and a shared

walkway and cycleway are just

some of the proposals being

considered for the redevelopment

of the Kirwee Recreation Reserve.

The reserve, which includes

sports fields and a bowling green,

is set to be redeveloped over the

next 10 years.

The district council’s Long

Term Plan has allocated $200,000

from 2019 for the project.

A working party, consisting of

three reserve management committee

members, three Kirwee

Community Committee members,

a representative from the

Malvern Community Board and

district council, was set up about

18 months ago.

Working party chairman

Raymond Williams said it is currently

looking at everything in

the reserve and considering what

would be beneficial for the community

in 20 to 30 years’ time.

Mr Williams said they are

planning to plant natives around

the boundary of the reserve next

year.

“That’s cemented in, I suppose.

Hoping to have that planted by

May,” he said.

Mr Williams said it set-up

a display board at the recent

Courtenay A&P Show for

members of the public to place

their ideas on.

So far, suggestions include

a new or updated playground,

youth area, community area,

dog exercise area, more sporting

facilities, shelter and a walkway

and cycleway around the reserve’s

boundary.

Mr Williams said once it has a

better idea of where everything

could go, and the district council’s

“reasonably happy,” it will

consult with the community.

He’s hopeful consultation will

take place “by autumn next year.”

The project will also include

irrigating the reserve using the

Central Plains Water Scheme. It

is currently irrigated from the

township water supply, sourced

from underground wells but

exceeds its allocated amount

under Kirwee’s water metering

system.

Sustainability key

to organic farming

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.

Weedons

responds

to the

Selwyn

Times

article on a proposal

for Selwyn residents

to contribute to the

operating costs of the

planned Christchurch

stadium

I was rather surprised at

the comments from Gerald

Carter on page 8 of the

November 28 edition.

To suggest that parts of

Selwyn should be amalgamated

into Christchurch

while leaving other areas

out is an extremely short

sighted view of the situation.

Christchurch would

dearly love to include Tai

Tapu, Lincoln, Rolleston

and West Melton into a

greater Christchurch area.

This would give

Christchurch a huge rating

area to help pay for any

enterprises they may have,

and totally to the detriment

of those ratepayers in

the areas mentioned. Then

of course the outer areas

would be of no interest, to

big, not enough revenue so

just dump them.

Leave the boundaries

exactly as they are, let

those who will profit from

development put their

hands into their pockets.

Hotels, motels, cafes,

bars, eateries etc. The

country areas are not a

cash cow to be exploited.

Southbridge

Summers responds

to Selwyn MP Amy

Adam’s column

on four-laning the

highway between

Christchurch and

Ashburton.

One of Amy Adams’

first utterances, early in

the term of the coalition

Government was “it’s a tax

and spend Labour Government.”

A bit silly I thought at

the time because taxing

and spending is what

Govenments of all persuasions

do. Now though, Mrs

Adams thinks the Government

should be spending

SELWYN TIMES

on upgrading and four

laning state highway one to

Ashburton as National had

planned to do.

Apparently spending

is okay. If it is on her pet

projects.

I recall many roading

and bridging improvements

promised by National

prior to the Northland

by-election but not one of

them was even consented.

Besides this it is at least

arguable wether more motorways

contribute to safer

motoring.

Our road toll rises

inexorably, in spite of continuous

roading improvements,

because of our poor

driving habits.

Personally, I applaud

the spending priorities of

the coalition Government

giving attention to our run

down public health system

and what National now

agrees is a housing crisis,

to name but two.

What’s involved in being a Freemason

Former

master of

Lincoln

Masonic

Lodge

Michael

Lavender

writes

about what

Freemasonry is and what the

lodge does

Freemasonry as we currently

know it has been around for

300 years, prior to that the stone

masons had their own “labour

entity.”

What is Freemasonry? It’s an

organisation, open to men, 18

years and older who share beliefs

of community standards and values,

who recognise an obligation

to support those less fortunate

than others, to support medical

and scholastic merit and live lives

of which they are proud.

There is a “hand shake,” this

simply carrying on the centuries

old tradition of recognition of

a fellow [previously worker]

member. Prior to written word, a

hand shake, given in a particular

format indicated the skill level of

the worker concerned.

Is there a goat? Only to keep the

grass down in days of yore.

Can any man join? Any man

with a belief of a supreme being.

So it’s a religious group then?

No, not at all. Two topics which

for centuries have caused strife

worldwide are politics and religion,

neither of these are acceptable

discussion in a Freemasons

lodge.

I’ve heard it’s a secret society?

Not really, no more than a

sports team practising game

moves in private. Check us out on

the web.

Is it expensive to join? Here at

Lincoln we currently pay $4 a

week. This covers dues to our local

lodge, to the national governing

body, plus a contribution to

benevolence.

What do you do at your meetings?

We pay the bills, approve

the minutes of the previous

monthly meeting, then if we have

a new member to bring into the

lodge, there is a three-part education

introduction, each separate

and spread over a number of

meetings. The purpose of these

introductions is to allow the

member an understanding of

the historical significance of the

workings of the “craft,” as it’s

known.

How long have you been in

Lincoln? We came to Maurice St

in 1880 and are still there.

How would I recognise some of

these benevolent works you do?

If you have a need of the new

Akaroa medical facilities, check

us out there. The chair of Geriatrics

in Auckland was established

by a $1,000,000 grant, the chair

of Paediatrics in Dunedin with a

$500,000 grant, with paediatrics

annually funded. Brain research

is currently the recipient of funding.

If you pay a visit to the

Christchurch charity medical

facilities you will be lying on the

operating table provided by us.

Previously we have given considerable

three-year support here

in Canterbury to junior lifesaving,

breast cancer research and

prostate cancer research. Currently

bursaries at both Lincoln

and Canterbury universities are

available.

If you feel you would like to

share with us the responsibility

of overseeing the good of society

as it comes our way, we would be

delighted to chat with you.

Lloyd Clausen

Clocking up nearly half a century

Leeston Volunteer Fire

Brigade chief fire officer

Lloyd Clausen, 64, has

been part of the brigade

for 49 years. Emily

O’Connell spoke to him

about his family history

with the brigade, being

a firefighter and his most

memorable call-out

How did you come to being a

firefighter?

I was pretty young obviously. It

was probably because the family

had been involved for a long time

in the brigade. Like a lot of brigades

in small rural towns you’ll

find lots of family connections.

Just one of those things you did

to help the community.

How old were you when you

joined?

Sixteen.

Were you still at school or

working at the time?

No, I was still at school. I

obviously couldn’t turnout

when I was at school because

the school wasn’t in Leeston. I

turned out all the other times.

What school were you going

to?

I was going to Southbridge

District High School.

Who in your family was

SERVICE: Leeston Volunteer Fire Brigade chief fire officer Lloyd Clausen has spent 49 years in the

brigade and isn’t looking to retire anytime soon.

involved in the brigade?

My grandfather Frank and my

father Bertram. My grandfather

was in the brigade going back

during the 1912 period, around

that era. He was also on the

town committee and he was

the fire inspector for the town

committee, so he did a few years

doing that. When dad was in

the brigade, he ended up doing

42 years when he retired. My

brother Grant also joined the

brigade and he’s done close to

40 years. I also have two distant

cousins and one of their son’s in

the brigade.

What was your first call-out?

Our fire engines were entirely

different to what we have now

obviously. So we sat up on the

back and we had a canvas cover

over the back and it was hailing

like hell and we went to a chimney

fire in Brookside.

How did you feel?

Excited and apprehensive. I

think I was probably a bit lucky

that the call was a chimney fire

and nothing really major. Well

it was major to the people, obviously.

It wasn’t as though it was

a house fire or a big property fire

or something like that. It was

probably a good type of call to

have as your first call.

What’s been the most

memorable call-out you’ve been

to and why?

Oh, so many. It’s hard really

to pick one out. There was a big

fire up in Nimmo’s in 1990 on

Waitangi Day. Massive big fire

up there that went on for over

a month. We had an appliance

there for over a week, running

24/7. I personally didn’t go to the

Port Hills fires. Probably assisting

in the earthquakes for a time

in Christchurch. We were driving

a tanker around and we were

supplying water to firefighters so

my role wasn’t very glamorous

but it had to be done. Then of

course, we were still operating

out here in Leeston.

Wednesday December 5 2018 15

as a volunteer firefighter

We took lots of chimneys down

and stuff like that, assisted people

were we could. We had flooding

in Leeston in 2013 where we

probably responded to about

80 calls in a 24-hour period.

All sorts of things. Just getting

someone out of a car and getting

them off to hospital, knowing

that they’re going to make a good

recovery is a pretty major thing

as well.

Of the call-outs you’ve

attended have there been ones

you haven’t been able to forget?

There’s always calls that will

leave a mark on you and we do

get really good psychological

through Fire and Emergency

New Zealand. But yeah, whilst

you learn to cope and deal

with it, and I don’t see I have

any issues around it, you still

remember them.

How did you become the chief

fire officer and when did that

happen?

I’ve been chief for about four

years I think. I’ve been an officer

since 1980 in the brigade and

just slowly worked my way up

the ranks from station officer,

to third officer to deputy to fire

chief.

How have you found it being

fire chief?

Good, I’m really enjoying it.

ACKNOWLEDGED: Lloyd Clausen receiving his Gold Bar for 49

years service from area manager Mike Johns.

You don’t jump in the truck unless

you really have to like I did

this morning. As the calls get

bigger, the rank required to take

command is bigger. So we had

the honey factory fire last year I

think, I took command of that in

the end. We had about seven to

eight appliances there. You’re not

so much the frontline firefighter

when you’re the chief.

How do you process some

of the devastating things you

see?

After you’ve been there a while

you have a bank of memories and

ways of coping. We have debriefs

within the brigade. People will

come out from FENZ and assist

with the debriefs and we have the

back-up of help if you need it and

that’s all highly confidential.

What would you say is

the hardest part of being a

firefighter?

I’ve talked to a few families

who have had a death in the family,

yeah, that’s pretty tough. If it’s

a young person it’s that loss the

of the life that’s not going to be

fulfilled.

What’s the most rewarding

part of the role?

To be able to help someone

out. We went today to where a

lady had a fire in her kitchen,

her dishwasher was on fire. She

did all the right things, we got

around there and got the fire

extinguished, there was plenty

of black smoke coming out of

the door when we went there.

The guys went in with breathing

apparatuses, got the fire out, no

other damage to the property

apart from the smoke and a bit of

water damage.

Do you have any plans to

finish up with the brigade?

Don’t let the cat out of the bag,

no. I have no immediate plans to

resign from FENZ, no.

How long have you lived in

Leeston for?

My whole life. My grandfather

was a saddler, he was here as a

young fella in 1890 working for

one of the local saddlers and

then in 1912 when the business

came up for sale, he bought the

business. My father took over the

saddler business and my brother

took over from him. I’ve been

overseas, done an OE and all that

sort of stuff, but I’m half an hour

from Hornby if you need to go,

you’ve got everything in the town

within reason.

Do you have a partner and/or

children?

Yes, I’ve got a partner named

Kathryn. She has a daughter

in Hamilton and I have a son

in Nelson and a daughter in

Leeston. We have a couple of

grandchildren.

What are some of your

hobbies?

Well I don’t do a lot of hobbies

as such. In the summer months

I manage one of the swimming

pools in Leeston . . . I’m on the

council committee, I’m chairman

of the Leeston Community

Committee, I’m on the area

committee for St John. I suppose

those sorts of things with the fire

brigade keep you reasonably

busy so I don’t do a lot of fishing

or anything like that these days.

I enjoy reading a book

occasionally if I get time

Family is a big hobby. Yes,

they’re the most important

thing in your life really.

Fun and exercise

Backyard Critters News

I see you: Jumping spider’s

excellent eyesight

Mike Bowie is

an ecologist

who specialises

in entomology

(insects

and other

invertebrates). Each

week he introduces a

new species found in

his backyard at Lincoln.

His column aims to raise

public awareness of

biodiversity, the variety

of living things around

us. Check out the full list

of invertebrates found at

A COMMON spider around the

house these days is the bronze

jumper helpis minitabunda.

This eastern Australian

species, also found in Papua

New Guinea, was first seen

in Auckland in 1972, but has

since expanded its range south

through both islands.

The species has a skinny body,

is pale brown in colour and is

8-10mm long.

The male is the larger of the

two sexes, which is quite unusual

INQUISITIVE: The bronze jumper, helpis minitabunda, has a

skinny body, is pale brown in colour and 8-10mm long. ​

in the spider world. Males have

much longer and darker front

legs, which distinguish them

from females.

Like other species of jumping

spiders, the bronze jumper has

large forward-facing eyes that

give them excellent eyesight.

This trait, combined with their

agility and speed, enables them

to ambush insects by leaping on

them.

They are very inquisitive

spiders and often jump on your

camera lens when you are trying

to photograph them.

The spider often makes web

retreats on leaves, where the

female will lay the eggs while the

male stays guard.

Chorus to put

on festive show

• By Ashleigh Monk

THE Christchurch City Chorus

will be putting on a festive

show to get everyone into the

Christmas spirit.

On December 15 the choir will

take the stage to perform The

Magic of Christmas.

Musical director Virginia

Humphrey-Taylor said the show

would include Christmas carols,

skits, poems and dancing.

“We want to share the joy and

music of Christmas with people,”

she said.

“We want everyone to come

and sing carols with us. It’s

something for the whole family

to get everyone excited for

Christmas.”

She said about 80 members of

the choir would be performing.

“We’ve got quartets singing,

we’ve got small groups singing,

we’ve got about 20 children who

will be performing,” she said.

“We’ll sing a lot of the classic

Christmas carols, but there will

also be a few songs that people

won’t know; songs from around

the world about Christmas.”

The show would give members

a chance to get some practice

in before the Christchurch City

SELWYN TIMES

Chorus heads to New Orleans

for a performance in September.

“We’re doing as many shows

as we can so we are prepared,”

she said.

She said she hoped to showcase

the group and encourage

new members to join.

“We’re looking for new members

all the time. There’s always a

turn over of membership because

people move away or their lives

change, so this is a chance for

people who might be interested in

joining to see what we do.”

The Magic of Christmas will

be performed on December 15,

with a matinee at 2pm and an

evening show at 7pm.

•Tickets will be $25 for

adults, $20 for seniors and

$10 for children, and can

Rolleston pupils’ music video

wins award

SELWYN TIMES

ADVENTURE: A group of 30 Lincoln High students left for a three week trip to Nepal on Sunday. ​

Rolleston School year 6 pupils Olly Preston, Fletcher

Brosnahan, Jayden Paterson and James Mills were fourth in

the music video year 4-6 category at the Movie and Digital

Excellence Awards. The group rewrote a song, recorded

it and made a music video using their scooters. The pupils

even held a cover shoot (below) for the video which they

called Kick, Push, Pull. To watch it, visit www.youtube.com/

watch?v=stWAlrDC-jI.

From Lincoln to Nepal

Lincoln High School year 13 student Caelum Betteridge writes about the school’s

involvement in the World Challenge and trip to Nepal

ON SUNDAY a group of 30

Lincoln High School students

started an exciting, three-week

adventure in Nepal with World

Challenge.

After nearly two years of

planning, fundraising and team

building, everything has finally

come together.

When we arrived in

Kathmandu, we split into two

smaller groups – team Aoraki

and team Everest – each with

two teachers, one World

Challenge leader and a cute yak

or yeti mascot to accompany us.

We, the students, will receive

a lot of flexibility in all our

activities. We are planning and

managing our own meals and

accommodation, and finding

our own balance of trekking and

community-focused work.

Both teams will have a

very rewarding opportunity

to interact with some of the

local children as we spend

several days supporting small

communities by improving the

facilities at their schools.

Team Everest will repair the

walls of the compound and

renovate and paint the toilet and

classrooms at the Shree Aatma

Bikash Basic School.

Team Aoraki will help build

a new block, dismantle and

build the toilet block and play

sports with the children at Shree

Chandrajyoti Basic School.

These few days will definitely

be one of the highlights of the

trip and an awesome way

to meet some of the local

people.

A large portion of our time

in Nepal will be spent trekking

through the Himalayas to

challenge ourselves and gain a

whole new perspective of the

country.

Team Everest will walk the

Poon Hill track, which is six

days in duration and reaches

an altitude of 3300m at its

highest. Team Aoraki will have

a one day acclimatisation trek

above Kathmandu before a

seven-day hike along the

Mardi Himal track which,

weather permitting, will provide

us with amazing views from

4500m.

Kindness the ‘embodiment of the Rolleston

Rolleston College year 10 student Dylan Evans won the school’s speech

competition recently. His speech is below

IT’S THE embodiment of the

Rolleston spirit. It’s the focus of

a blog post by our principal.

K-I-N-D-N-E-S-S.

Kindness . . . why? Why

should we be kind? Why does it

matter? I will be answering all

of those questions in a stunning

display of excellence that will

leave no question as to the

best whānau. It’s Koanga.

Uh ah.

Kindness is an eminent

avenue for development of self.

Being the recipient of kindness

boosts faith in yourself, in your

abilities and when you trust

yourself, you trust your abilities,

you open yourself to failure and

by extension, success.

When you are certain you can

prevail, you take your failures in

stride and as lessons. You build

your arsenal of knowledge, gunby-gun,

knife-by-knife, until you

have the competence to assault

any challenge, any problem.

Kindness also ‘creates an

environment where it is okay to

make mistakes, learn from them

and become a better person,’

according to Kindness

. . . Why, a blog post by Mr

Saville. An environment in

which a person can make

mistakes, a person can learn

from their mistakes, is an

environment which can culture

a person with a desire for

learning, because they are able

to take risks in their learning

and develop unconventional,

fresh ideas without the

possibility of discouragement.

When kindness is a major

factor in a person’s life, they can

be resilient by using failure as a

method of education, they can

be curious by taking risks in

their learning, they can be joyful

by seeing failure as progress, not

a stand-still or dead-end, and

they can be confident in their

learning, their

capabilities, so

they can push

themselves to

the limits they

set, to achieve the

goals they hope they

can attain.

Kindness is an

effective instrument

in the building

of communities.

Displaying

kindness

to other people

and groups of

people not only

builds bridges

and relationships

between people,

schools,

communities, and

SHARING IDEAS:

Year 10 student

Dylan Evans

performing his

winning speech

at Rolleston

College.

SCHOOLS

countries, but solidifies those

relationships. Relationships

pop when there is an absence of

kindness and respect because

relationships require mutual

respect and kindness in order

for both parties to feel satisfied;

you need to appreciate and

reciprocate kindness if you

want a long-lasting relationship.

No one would want to be in a

relationship where they feel they

are doing most of the work, and

aren’t appreciated.

To have a friend, is to be a

friend.

Being kind to build

communities means being

inclusive when you spread

unconditional kindness,

be collaborative in your

attempts to build bridges

of kindness between

communities, be able to

communicate and connect

kindness in your interactions

with your communities, and

be bi-culturally competent and

confident by communicating

with a diverse group of people to

challenge your ideas and grow

your kindness skill-set.

wings of a butterfly can cause a

spirit’

And in that same vein, I

fundamentally believe gestures

of kindness can swirl and

tumble and transform futures. A

small act a kindness, a random

act of kindness, even a small,

random act of kindness can do

unimaginable good. Sometimes

we do not know what is happening

inside the life of another person,

their struggles and doing a kind

thing can boost the spirit of

someone in need, give them an

extra spring in the step when they

are feeling weighed down. And

in a school environment, being

kind, generous, and respectful

can change futures. A teacher

encouraging an understanding

in a subject can cultivate a love

and a drive for lifelong learning.

A teacher displays kindness to a

student in need, and the student

has the power to change the world.

A small ripple, an insignificant

current, can grow into a tsunami.

Futures can be transformed

by encouraging being creative,

encouraging learning and creating

the map to direct their own

learning, not following a pre-made

one. Enforcing the need to be

environmentally aware, care for

the future generations and instil

kindness into the fabric of society

and be adaptive by altering your

kindness to fit into any situation.

Use kindness as a tool, as

weapon to develop self, build

communities, and transform

futures.

dancing since she was threeyears-old,

was chosen for the

scholarship after receiving “very

Her mother Gina Lye said she

was pleased for her daughter

who had “worked so hard this

more hours a week.

She said Katie was “absolutely

thrilled” with the scholarship

West Melton Community and Recreation Centre

official opening

Selwyn District Council is hosting an official opening of the West Melton Community and

Recreation Centre on Friday 7 December at 3pm.

The community celebration of the opening will be attended by representatives of Te Taumutu

Rūnanga, Hon Amy Adams, Mayor Sam Broughton, members of the West Melton Residents’

Association and Council staff. Members of the public are warmly invited to attend the event where

students from West Melton School will perform a kapa haka.

West Melton Community and Recreation Centre committee chair Bruce Russell says the opening

is a chance for everyone in the community to have a look at the new facility.

“This is brilliant new facility which will greatly enhance the social and recreational opportunities

available to the West Melton community. The organising committee and the Council are extremely

proud of this facility,” Mr Russell says.

Council Major Projects Property Manager John Reid says the new facility, which took about 13

months to complete*, will cater to the future demands of the West Melton residents as well as the

wider Selwyn community.

“This modern, high quality community facility will serve the needs of the West Melton area, but it

will also add a significant asset to the growing network of community facilities across the Selwyn

district,” Mr Reid says.

The $8.5 million facility has community meeting spaces, indoor sport and recreation (including

an indoor court), a scout hall, a Plunket room and Playcentre. There is also space for community

group activities such as service, gardening and film clubs.

The facility has a new pedestrian promenade which connects to the entrance of the building and

is lined with trees. There are also a number of native and exotic plant species.

West Melton had an existing outdated and earthquake damaged hall located on the same site as the

new facility. The West Melton Community and Recreation Centre is a much larger and more modern

facility, designed to better meet the needs of a population that has grown rapidly in recent years.

*As the carpark is planned to be completed in late December, people who attend the opening

event are encouraged to park at the West Melton Tavern.

More public toilets for Selwyn district

New public toilets are being installed across the district in response to demand from visitors and

residents.

With funding from the government’s Tourism Infrastructure Fund, the Council is currently installing a

new three-pan public toilet at Castle Hill at a cost of $166,300. Early next year, new single pan toilets

will be installed at Lake Georgina ($54,800) and Lake Selfe ($54,800) as well as another four-pan toilet

at Dunsandel ($185,700).

The installation of new non-funded toilets in the district include one at Ryton Bay ($57,625) which was

opened last November, and a new four-pan toilet will be installed at Lincoln Domain ($186,800) early

next year.

Community Projects Manager Cam Warr says the funding from the government has allowed the Council

to quickly provide more toilet facilities across the district to meet demand.

“The government funding has allowed us to increase the number of available toilets at sites that have

large numbers of visitors.

We’ve also been able to replace older and less environmentally friendly toilets. It’s important to provide

quality facilities, especially if we want people to use them,” Mr Warr says.

The purpose of the Tourism Infrastructure Fund is to provide financial support for local tourism-related

infrastructure where tourism growth (domestic and international) is placing pressure on, or potential

growth is constrained by, existing infrastructure and the local community is unable to respond in a

timely way without assistance.

The fund provides up to $25 million per year for the development of tourism-related infrastructure such

as carparks, freedom camping facilities, sewerage and water works and transport projects.

Taking water from fire hydrants

The Council is reminding commercial water users about restrictions

on extracting water from fire hydrants.

The Council does not provide a permit system for contractors to

extract water from fire hydrants on the public potable (drinking

water) network and contractors must not connect any equipment to

the network.

The only exception to this is on development subdivision sites

where the Council permits developers to apply for a single

connection point, which has a range of conditions including

payment for the use of the water.

Council Asset Manager Murray Washington says this policy is

different to neighbouring authorities, but is needed to reduce the

level of potential risk.

“We take a cautious approach to protecting the health of our

residents, and this has to take priority over the convenience of

contractors,” he says.

“The Council has considered the potential risks of contractor

equipment being connected to the public supply, and decided there

is potential for the equipment being unsterilised – and this is too

great a risk.

Mr Washington says contamination events have occurred in the past

after contractors connected to the public supply to extract water.

The Council is getting in touch with contractors across the district

to make them aware of the policy.

Any contractors who need further information should contact the

Water Services Team on 347 2800.

Takeaway coffee cups go

into the red bin

Disposable takeaway coffee cups go in your red lid rubbish

bin. They are lined with plastic to make them waterproof so

your drink doesn’t leak, but unfortunately this makes them

unable to be processed through the recycling plant.

Coffee cups can’t go in your organics bin

either, even if it’s marketed as ‘compostable’

or ‘biodegradable’. We cannot currently

accept these in our composting process.

Better yet, why not get a keep cup.

Good news for the weekend tidy-up - the Pines Resource Recovery Park will now be open from 9am to

4.30pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

The new extended hours bring the weekend opening hours in line with weekday hours at the Recovery

Park, in Burnham School Road near Rolleston.

Council Solid Waste Manager Andrew Boyd says the longer weekend opening hours should be a bonus

for residents.

“With many of our residents working Monday to Friday, the weekend provides a good opportunity to

catch up on work around the home, and chores such as taking rubbish to the Recovery Park.”

Mr Boyd is hopeful the new closing time will also give users the opportunity to plan their days, allowing

them make sure their rubbish runs are done with plenty of time to spare.

For more information on Pines Recovery Park please head to selwyn.govt.nz/pines

The revised opening hours are now in place.

Leeston-Southbridge, Weedons

open twenty20 season with wins

LEESTON-Southbridge and

Weedons both had perfect starts

to their Canterbury country

premier twenty20 campaigns on

Saturday with two wins each.

The opening round of the

competition saw all eight topflight

sides play two games each.

Leeston-Southbridge batted

first in their opening game

against Oxford-Rangiora and

racked up 132 runs in their 20

overs. Opener Ben Chamberlain

anchored the innings with 37

off 46 balls, while Rupert Young

contributed 36 off 29.

They defended the total well,

restricting the Oxford-Rangiora

run chase and picking up timely

wickets. Robert Clifford was the

key man with the ball, picking

up four wickets and conceding

just 24 runs from his four overs.

Oxford-Rangiora fell 14 runs

short.

Leeston-Southbridge then

backed up the win, tipping over

• By Allan Batt.

Southbrook by eight wickets.

After being set 156 to win,

Young coolly went about

knocking off the total. He

opened the innings with an

unbeaten 64 to guide Leeston-

Southbridge home with five balls

to spare.

Meanwhile, in a thriller at

Kirwee, Darfield and Weedons

were unable to be separated in a

rare twenty20 draw.

However, with 140 runs each,

Weedons took the win because

they lost fewer wickets. Weedons’

James Richards scored 40 to lead

his team to a solid score of 140/7,

with Anoop Surendran snaring

three wickets for Darfield.

Darfield’s Chris Warner led

the reply with a blistering 61

off 44 balls, with five sixes. But

Weedons hung in the game with

wickets at the other end. Lachie

Stove was the chief destroyer

with three key wickets, including

Warner in the 16th over. The

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY racer

Jeremy Webb had no intention

of racing both his TQ

midget and his midget

on the same night this

summer at Ruapuna.

But he has a burning

desire to pay tribute to

the late Ryan Stone, an

early mentor of his on

Saturday.

Webb, the current

New Zealand TQ

champion has decided

to enter the Ryan Stone Tribute

race in his 750cc suzukipowered

TQ, as well as

contest a round of the Southern

Midget Series on the same

night in his 2700cc esslinger

engine midget.

“I guess it’s as

good a time as any to

start my preparation

for February’s

New Zealand TQ

championship at

Ruapuna this Saturday.

If it wasn’t the Stoney

race, I’d leave the TQ in

the shed and focus on

the midget, but Ryan

means a heck of a lot to many

of the TQ racers and his race is

wickets proved pivotal with

Darfield finishing on 140/9.

In their second match, Sandeep

Singh and Josh Watson both took

three wickets as Weedons bowled

Sefton out for 118 in 18.2 overs.

Richards then had another fine

knock of 47, while fellow opener

Shannon Dunnett piled on 57 as

Weedons secured an eight-wicket

win with more than eight overs

to spare.

Darfield went on to beat

Kaiapoi in their second game,

while Cheviot got back on track

with a victory over Oxford-

Rangiora.

KEY MAN: Josh Watson took

five wickets in Weedons’ two

wins at the weekend: PHOTO:

KAREN CASEY

Webb to honour late friend in midget race

Jeremy Webb

one of those got-to-win deals,”

said Webb.

Stone passed away in 2012

after a battle with cancer and,

although Webb is a two-time

winner of the race held in

memory of his good friend, he

says that it goes deeper than

that.

“My father Dick was,

like many others, a good

mate of Ryan’s. Stoney put

in a huge effort getting the TQ

class to adapt the water-cooled

750cc engines that made the

class a lot more affordable than

the air-cooled machines,” Webb

said.

“The fact that TQs remain

relatively strong numberswise

is largely due to Ryan’s

perseverance,” said Webb.

Not only is Webb having to

crank-up his preparation to

defend his national TQ crown,

but he is again returning

to Auckland to contest the

international midget car series

at Western Springs over the

Christmas break.

Last season, Webb’s efforts

saw him win the Presidents Cup

at the New Zealand Speedway

Awards in recognition of his

prowess in the two classes at a

national level.

West Melton Forest

The pine trees in West Melton Forest were originally planted as a flood protection measure,

now they continue to do their job whilst providing scenic tracks for horse riders of all abilities.

There is a picnic area with hitching

posts for horses. Walkers and runners

are welcome, but it’s the horses that have

the right of way here.

The West Melton Forest is a section of

the Waimakariri River Regional Park,

covering approximately 350 hectares

of pine forest between Chattertons and

Weedons Ross Roads. The park entrance

is off Chattertons Road, where a night

gate is opened at 7am daily. During

daylight savings the gate is locked at

10pm, outside of this time it is locked at

7pm. Background, the pine trees of West

Melton Forest were originally planted

as a flood protection measure, giving

the stop banks a first line of defence

against a flood. The development of

the forest as a park was undertaken

due to the increasing demand for safe

horse riding facilities in the Selwyn

District. Environment Canterbury

worked in partnership with the Selwyn

District Council to create an area where

recreational horse riding is possible

away from motorised activity while still

maintaining flood protection.

Lots of choices to participate in at the

West Melton Forest.

• Horse trails - 10km marked trail

which is suitable for most levels

of riding ability

• Walks - although horses have the

right of way

• Picnics

• Gas BBQ’s

Visit West Melton Forest. Nature is only a short drive away.

Water results for West Melton

What does the Christchurch West

Melton water zone committee do?

The committee works with an on-the-ground

team made up of Environment Canterbury

staff and other Canterbury Water Management

Strategy partners to implement work

programmes in the Christchurch West Melton

area.

What are they aiming to achieve by

2020?

They’ve agreed on several areas of priority

and outcomes to budget for and then act on

in the Christchurch West Melton water zone,

which they will measure progress against to

2020.

Boundaries With Other Water Management

Zones The Zone shares boundaries with

Banks Peninsula, Selwyn Waihora, and

Waimakairiri Zones, with water moving into

and out of the Zone: • The Waimakariri River

flows through the Christchurch West Melton,

Selwyn-Waihora, and Waimakariri Zones of

The Waimakariri upper catchment is in the

Selwyn Waihora Zone of Christchurch, West

Melton shares a boundary with the Waimakariri

Zone along the lower parts of the catchment

• The aquifers in the Zone are part of a larger

groundwater system on the Canterbury Plains,

with water moving both into and out of the

Zone • The Halswell River/Huritini catchment

flows from the Zone into Selwyn-Waihora

Zone (towards Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere) •

The reticulated public water supply to Lyttelton

Harbour/ Whakaraupō is supplied from

groundwater in the Zone In addition, there is a

Regional Committee for the Canterbury Water

Management Strategy (CWMS) that considers

crossboundary matters from a regional

perspective. The Zone Committee will seek to

ensure that an integrated approach to water

management is taken that reflects catchments

rather than administrative boundaries.

Agri Magic farm environment

plan template approved

Environment Canterbury confirmed last

week that Agri Magic’s farm environment

plan template meets the requirements of

the Canterbury Land & Water Regional

Plan (LWRP).

Under the LWRP, all farms requiring

a land use consent to farm must produce

an environmental plan to support it.

Environment Canterbury chief executive

Bill Bayfield said the Agri Magic template

met the criteria of Schedule 7 of the LWRP,

as modified by the Nutrient Management

and Waitaki Plan Change (Plan Change 5),

yet to be made operative.

“Like the Farm Environment Plan

Assessment Group, I was impressed with

the explanation provided setting out

how the template could be used as part

of a package helping Agri Magic clients

navigate through and comply with their

environmental obligations,” Mr Bayfield

said.

“The template is comprehensive and

focused on making sure clients are clear on

risks and priorities for action.”

Agri Magic director Charlotte Glass said

the template was developed to help farmers

identify the great things they already

do and identify areas where they could

The Land & Water Regional Plan is

“It is reassuring to see in the Agri Magic

template a methodology that will enable

updating of plans and to identify and

address actual and potential environmental

effects and risks,” Mr Bayfield said.

“We encourage all farmers to prepare

farm environment plans, regardless of

whether they’re needed by regulation.

International markets are increasingly

demanding proven sustainability, and

farm environment plans are one way to

demonstrate this.”

Under Schedule 7 of the LWRP, FEPs

can be prepared either by landowners

themselves using guidance in the LWRP

or via industry-prepared templates and

guidance material.

A minimum content is required, and all

FEPs must include an assessment of the

risks associated with the farming activities

and how those risks will be managed.

This includes irrigation, application of

nutrients, management of effluent, stock

exclusion from waterways, offal pits and

farm rubbish pits. FEPs must be audited

at regular intervals by Environment

Canterbury-approved auditors.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Taking our agri message

to Latin America

Farmers, dairy product manufacturers

and trade representatives in Uruguay

and Argentina have been hearing a New

Zealand take on current agricultural

issues.

Late last month Federated Farmers of

NZ President Katie Milne was engaged in

a busy schedule of speaking and meeting

engagements in Montevideo and Buenos

Aires in a programme put together by the

Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), the

Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and

New Zealand’s Ambassador to Argentina,

Paraguay and Uruguay, Raylene Liufalani.

Ms Milne’s engagements in Uruguay

included giving an address to a conference

with the theme ‘Social innovation for a

country with agricultural conscience’,

a meeting with Uruguay’s Minister

for Agriculture and Livestock, Enzo

Benech, and visiting the PGG Wrightson

Pas Research Centre to witness their

operations in Latin America.

The Argentine Congress on November

22 included a Q&A session with Argentine

Deputies and Senators, at which her topics

included future farming challenges,

the importance of co-operatives in

New Zealand agriculture (dairy in

particular) and the role of women in rural

communities.

Among other events, she also had

discussions with CIL (Argentina’s dairy

industry body) and spoke at a symposium

of La Serenisima, a dairy product maker

with more than 5000 employees and

annual revenue of more than

$NZ2 billion.

During her visit she also met Uruguayan

and Argentine farmers, including her

counterparts, to hear first-hand the

challenges they are facing in the region.

While New Zealand has a much higher

level of trade with Asian nations than

those in Latin America, the latter is seen

as offering significant opportunities –

especially with Chile and Peru being

signatories to the CPTPP. New Zealand is

also exploring deeper trade engagement

with MERCOSUR (Argentina, Brazil,

Paraguay and Uruguay).

With Argentina and Uruguay New

Zealand has a long history of agricultural

co-operation, including advocacy for

freeing up global agricultural trade

and promoting sustainable agricultural

production. The three countries work

together on global issues such as

protecting Antarctica and the Southern

Ocean, international security challenges

and climate change solutions.

According to Statistics NZ, in the year

to September 2017, New Zealand gained

export revenues from goods and services

to Argentina of $134 million (with imports

from Argentina at $222.6m). The figures

for Uruguay for the same period were

$27.6m and $8.9m.

People to people links are strong and

growing as a result of the direct Air New

Katie Milne in

Uruguay 2018

Zealand flight between Auckland and

Buenos Aires. 1000 young Argentines

and 200 young Uruguayans travel to New

Zealand each year under the Working

Holiday Scheme with many working on

New Zealand farms. 22,000 Argentines

visited New Zealand last year - the largest

source of tourists from Latin America.

Kaleidoscope of colourful capsicums

• By Henri Ham

SUMMER IS knocking on the

door (well it should be), which

means it’s now the perfect time

to start planting capsicums in

your garden.

Capsicums, known in other

countries as sweet bell peppers,

are surprisingly easy to grow.

Their main need is for a warm

sunny environment. Once

you’ve ticked off that, they’re

really plant-and-forget veges –

requiring little maintenance.

But what I really love about

capsicums is the way they

change their colour as they

ripen – showing off their

kaleidoscope of colour.

They all start out

green and then

change colour

to yellow, then

orange, and lastly

red. And the

longer they’re on

the plant, the

sweeter they will

become.

Another great

thing about

capsicums is that

they cope well in

confined spaces with

little watering. This means

they thrive well in a pot. Planting

them in a pot also allows you to

shift them around to maximise

the sun, and also really show

them off to your friends and

curious neighbours.

Green, yellow, orange, red and

purple capsicum seedlings are all

available now. And if you want

a head start on your growing,

there are also a toro (sweet red)

variety available as an established

plant. The toro (sweet red) has

a distinctive horn shape to it.

It differs from the classic red

capsicum by being thinner,

sweeter and taking less time to

ripen.

Capsicums like similar

growing conditions to your

tomatoes. They like a warm,

sunny, sheltered and welldrained

spot. Before planting,

prepare your soil by digging in

some compost, sheep pallets or

general fertiliser. The richer the

soil, the more generous your

plant will be with its crop.

Once you’ve prepared your

ideal capsicum planting spot, dig

holes about

3cm

deep,

spacing them 40cm apart. Place

the seedlings inside and

lightly pack down with

soil. I like to stake my

seedlings at this point.

‘If you stake it, they will

grow,’ is my positivethinking

attitude to

capsicum growing.

Add mulch to help

keep the weeds down.

Newspaper covered with

pea straw can also

work really well.

And watch out for

slugs, who are

also big fans of

capsicums. Lay

down some

bait or an

organic option

is to check out

our beer bait,

which you can

make at home.

From here, keep them

SWEET: Capsicums like

similar growing conditions

to tomatoes. In two to

three months you can start

harvesting them.

watered (more so for those in

pots) and give them a feed of

liquid fertiliser every fortnight

to ensure a bumper crop. But try

not to water the leaves of your

capsicums, as this can encourage

disease.

In two to three months

you can start harvesting your

capsicums. Some cooks may say

a watched pot never boils; well

I say a capsicum never ripens

when you check it every day.

Well of course they do – but

they quickly become the most

inspected plant in my vege

garden, while I’m waiting for

them to really ripen up.

Sunflowers bring out the inner child

• By Henri Ham

SUNFLOWERS ARE pure fun

in the garden. They’re bright,

cheery and bring out the inner

child in us all.

For me, they also release my

competitive streak – where I

can’t help but check out other

people’s sunflowers and mentally

compare them to ones I’m

growing.

After the erratic spring

weather we’ve been having lately,

December is the perfect time

to start thinking about planting

some sunflowers in your garden.

Sunflowers come in all shapes

and sizes. Varying in height

(from to 60cm to 3m tall),

and flowering in colours from

crimson to orange, yellow and

even stripes. Most sunflowers

each produce a single flower

head, although some branching

varieties grow multiples. And

the largest heads can grow up to

50cm wide.

Sunflowers are heliotropic,

meaning they turn their heads

throughout the day to gain maximum

sun rays on their faces.

So factor this in when you’re

working out where to plant them

in the garden. If you place them

on the western border to your

house, they’ll be facing away

from you in the afternoon sun.

When it comes to growing

sunflowers, they are pretty easy.

They require a sheltered, welldrained,

but only moderately,

fertile soil. However, it’s key that

they’re planted in a super sunny

spot that gets at least six to eight

hours of daily sun.

Try a classic, bright yellow

flowering, single stem sunflower

– the Russian giant. It definitely

lives up to its name and can

reach up to 3m high.

I personally love the group impact

they can make when grown

in a bunch together or along a

fence line.

Dig holes around 3cm deep

and plant your seedlings approximately

30cm apart. Sunflowers

can really suck the nutrients and

water out of the ground around

VIVID: Sunflowers can reach up to 3m

high, like this Russian giant.

them, so make sure any nearby

annuals are around 30cm away

from the sunflower stem.

Now is also the time to stake

them to ensure they don’t topple

over later on. You’ll be amazed at

how quickly they can shoot up,

so its important to stake early

before you risk damaging the

root systems.

Water your sunflowers in

the morning to avoid root rot

overnight. Once established they

don’t really need any fertiliser,

but adding some every few

weeks is a good idea if you’re entering

them in a tallest sunflower

competition or just really want

to show off.

You can also grow sunflowers

in pots. I recommend at least a

30-litre pot, as you don’t want

the sunflower to get top heavy

and topple over. Again, stake it

right from when you plant the

seedling so you keep the root

systems intact. Having them near

a fence or wall where you can

secure them to something else

is also recommended to ensure

their stems don’t break under

their own weight.

In two to three months your

sunflowers should have risen and

be shining proud in your garden.

Later, when the heads begin

to droop you can harvest their

heads for seeds.

Once harvested, soak the seeds

over night in a lightly salted

water. Then slow roast them

for 40min at 150° deg C. Once

cooled, store in an airtight jar

in the fridge for two months or

freezer for up to a year. Enjoy

them added to salads or savoury

baking for many months to

come. Delicious.

BRING oN

summer

Contrary to what we have had weather-wise of late, Summer is here so we need to

look to protect our gardens for the long hot days ahead. As the year draws to a close,

we will also be looking to prepare for the festive season full of entertaining friends

and family and hopefully some relaxing.

watering your gardenS

Much the same as when watering your lawn, your

garden will benefit from a watering for an hour or more

every few days rather than a light sprinkling every day.

This will ensure the moisture gets down deeper, and

encourage the plant’s roots to go further down in the

soil. This creates a stronger plant with well-established

roots. Remember to water early in the morning or later

in the evening to

stop your plants

drying out during

the heat of the

day. If you are

unsure how much

water your plants

need, grab a handy

moisture metre.

Lawn Care through Summer

Move your mower up a notch so you aren’t cutting it

too short. Leaving a bit of height will help to protect

your lawn from drying out so quickly. Water your lawns

early in the morning and later in the evening, not in

the heat of the day. Where possible, water for an hour

or more to give it a good soak rather than a quick

watering. A handy tip is to set a water timer and you

can let it do its thing! Grab one in store or online today.

entertaining outdoorS

We love entertaining outdoors here in NZ, and

now is a great time to get sorted in time for

Christmas. A fresh layer of bark will tidy up the

garden wonderfully, and some decorative stones

will add a touch of something different around

patios or pavers. If you are looking to create a new

space, we have a great range of bark nuggets,

mulch, chips, pavers and stones to help with your

DIY projects.

SAFER ACCESS TO INTELLIGRO

Heading north on Main South Road you will use the

Weedons Ross Road off ramp. Manion Road is just before

Fire rages, homes at risk

Equinox boosts Holden’s SUV range

• By Ross Kiddie

HOLDEN HAS gone big with its

sport utility vehicle range. Not

only is there a comprehensive

array of models to choose from,

they go from small to large –

Trax to the new Acadia.

While Acadia is the SUV of the

moment, there’s another relatively

new wagon in Holden’s book –

the Equinox – a Mexican-sourced

mid-size car which impresses

more and more each time I’m in

it.

The Equinox lands here in a

wide variety of models, it is a

complete range starting from

$35,990 and ending at $59,990, all

with four-cylinder engines, and

all turbocharged. Base models

land with a 1.5-litre petrol unit,

there is a 2-litre petrol and a 1.6-

litre diesel.

I’m yet to drive the diesel, but

I can report that even in basemodel

form the power plant is far

from disgraced; it is a real honey

and would probably be my choice

if I was an Equinox buyer.

However, this evaluation

focuses on the range-topping

2-litre LTZ-V petrol, which lists

at $56,990 and is fully loaded

with specification. It gets all the

traditional SUV kit, but there are

also many niceties that would

please the South Island buyer –

heated steering wheel and heated

off-road tracks.

seats for the cold winters, dual

sunroof, and cooling seats. Other

major items include satellite

navigation, cruise control, Bose

premium audio, wireless mobile

phone charging, hands-free

tailgate and hill descent control.

The latter works on four-wheeldrive,

obviously, and while not

all models have drive to all four

wheels, the LTZ-V does, and it

is usual SUV fare, not so much a

device to tackle gnarly off-road

stuff, but easily a mechanism so

that cross-country tracks and

trails can be conquered.

On the media launch for the

Equinox, Holden New Zealand

incorporated an adventurous

route out of New Plymouth,

taking in Whangamomona

through the Forgotten World

Highway. The washboard

roads were a real test for the

suspension and driveline of

the Equinox, but even those

without four-wheel-drive coped

admirably. The vehicle is capable

and honest, it does well under

testing conditions and does so

without compromise. Occupant

comfort is high, and the driveline

mechanicals are well suited to

tough conditions.

Holden rates the 2-litre model

with 188kW and 353Nm; for

interest’s sake, the 1.5 gets 127kW

and 275Nm, reinforcing my

comment earlier that it doesn’t

miss out on much.

Quite obviously, the 2-litre

doesn’t work quite as hard, and

• Price – Holden Equinox

LTZ-V, $56,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4652mm; width, 1843mm;

height, 1697mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1998cc, 188kW, 353Nm,

nine-speed,automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.8sec

• Fuel usage – 8.4l/100km

it has more than enough power,

it competes in the mid-size SUV

market admirably. Against the

stopwatch it will easily make a

standstill to 100km/h sprint in

8.8sec.

More importantly, it is an engine

that is gentle with fuel use. Holden

claims an 8.4-litre per 100km

(34mpg) combined cycle average.

That sits well with the 9.8l/100km

(29mpg) figure showing on the

fuel usage readout during my

time with the test car. At 100km/h

the instantaneous readout sits at

6.6l/100km (42mpg).

Drive is channelled through a

nine-speed automatic gearbox,

the benefit of so many gears is

the smooth and fluid way in

which transmission is delivered.

It’s almost impossible to pick

shifts and determine which gear

is actually allocated.

In all circumstances the

Equinox feels feisty with

wonderful engine response –

that’s the beauty of having such

forceful low down torque, the

engine constantly feels eager.

I took the test car west to

Hororata, and while there aren’t

many corners on the roads

heading to that settlement, I

felt the North Island experience

provided more than ample

opportunity to gauge the

Equinox’s potential in the tight

stuff and I can report it is a

champion in terms of handling.

Holden New Zealand, and I

guess its partner in Australia, is

on a fairly solid direction in terms

of marketing and promotion. The

product which is arriving in our

market is markedly different to

what we have traditionally come to

expect from the company.

However, that’s a good thing,

and the cars that are gracing our

showrooms are aimed to satisfy

families and fleet buyers.

The Equinox is a car which

competes well with some tough

opposition. I like it, and I’m

particularly looking forward to

driving the diesel variant at some

point, as well as getting behind

the wheel of the Acadia on my

home patch. They are both a

breath of fresh air in the crowded

SUV market.

Seven things you should ask a

lawyer when buying a house

Most people know that it’s a good idea

to seek advice from a lawyer when buying

a property. If you’re signing a binding legal

document that involves the biggest financial

transaction you’ll probably ever make, it

makes sense to engage an expert to help.

However, a lawyer or conveyancer isn’t

just there to dot the i’s and cross the t’s

on the contract. You should see them as a

valuable source of support throughout the

property buying process, not just someone

to push the paperwork through at the last

minute. Things can move fast in property

transactions so it’s smart to start talking to a

lawyer as soon as you start looking through

‘for sale’ ads. Here’s what to ask them in the

first instance:

1. Are you a conveyancing

specialist? It might seem obvious, but

you really do want a lawyer that specialises

in property transactions and knows the insand-outs

of what you’re wanting to do. You

may already have a great family lawyer, but

if this isn’t an area they specialise in, then

look elsewhere – you could even ask them

for a recommendation.

2. How much do you charge?

Different lawyers and conveyancers have

different fee structures, and pricing can

vary dramatically, so it pays to have a clear

understanding of what they will charge you

from the get-go, and when it will be due.

3. What clauses should I add?

Your sale and purchase agreement can

include clauses, such as a finance clause that

means the offer is subject to you getting loan

pre-approval from your bank. Talk to your

lawyer about your individual circumstances

and what clauses should be included in your

contract, to best protect yourself. Talking

about this early on will save you time when

it comes to making an offer and the real

estate agent or salesperson asks what clauses

you’d like in the agreement.

4. Can you explain the LIM to

me? A LIM is a council file that includes

all the information held about a particular

property. These files can be chunky, complex

and full of very detailed information about

resource consents, zoning information,

natural features that affect a property (like

flooding) and more. Ask your lawyer or

conveyancer to look over these documents

and explain them to you, so you fully

understand all aspects of the information.

Your lawyer will know what to watch out for

when reading through the documents and

is the best person to spot any red flags for

you.

5. What do I need to know about

a unit title property? If you are buying a

unit title property, the seller must provide

you with certain sets of information. Talk to

your lawyer about the information you are

entitled to and ask their advice on whether

you should seek any further information.

6. Will you check my sale and

purchase agreement before I sign it?

Don’t sign anything before your lawyer or

conveyancer has read over it. Remember,

a sale and purchase agreement is a legally

binding document and there’s no going

back once you have signed on the dotted

line. Buying a home is a big financial

decision, so it’s well worth taking the time

to ensure you’ve done your due diligence

and received the advice you need.

7. What will happen on

settlement day? Settlement day is when

the property transfer goes ahead, and

the house becomes yours. This day is the

culmination of a lot of hard work and stress,

but before you pop the champagne, several

things need to happen in sequence between

your lawyer, the seller’s lawyer, and your

bank or lender. This can take time, so it’s a

good idea not to be sitting outside the home

at 9am with a moving truck. You can find a

helpful settlement checklist on settled.govt.

nz, the independent government website

for buyers and sellers.

If you’re not sure where to find a

lawyer, you can ask family or friends for

recommendations or check out www.

propertylawyers.org.nz (part of the New

Zealand Law Society) to find one in your

area.

For independent guidance and

information on buying or selling, check

out settled.govt.nz.

Presenting your home for sale?

The presentation of your home

doesn’t mean spending thousands

on an upgrade either! So why

wouldn’t you want to do everything

possible to make it appealing to

prospective purchasers?

Street appeal

The exterior of your home is the first

thing buyers will see, so the property

needs to look well-kept and inviting. Take

a look at your place from the street and

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

lawns, trim trees, plants and hedges, add

some garden lights and place a nice pot or

plant by the front door. Ensure the house

exterior is cleaned or freshened with new

paint if necessary, hose down drives, paths

and fences, put stylish new numbers on

the house and perhaps buy a funky new

letter box!

Make an entrance

Even if your entrance or hallway is

small, you can still give it some wow! A

large mirror adds light and makes an

entrance look twice the size. Fresh flowers,

candles or a stylish piece of art create an

inviting first impression. Ensure floors are

clean whether timber, tiles or carpet.

Create space

Light, air and space are three key

factors in presenting a home to the

best advantage. Open up curtains

and windows and use lamps and light

fittings for mood and ambience. Arrange

furniture to maximise space and remove

items that make the room appear

cramped.

Fresh feel

Freshen rooms with new paint if

necessary, but aim for neutral tones which

are more versatile for buyers. Add a splash

of colour in cushions, throws, artwork or

a vase of flowers. Invest in a new duvet or

bedspread and always make the bed!

Clear out clutter

Storage space sells but clutter

complicates! Clean out your cupboards,

shelves and garage, and get rid of

unnecessary clutter. Buyers inspect

wardrobes and cupboards so tidy them up

and reduce the number of photos, books,

nicknacks on display – they distract

buyers, too!

Beautify the bathroom

Replace or resurface fittings if necessary,

but otherwise you can simply beautify

your bathroom with thorough and

fastidious cleaning, thick opulent towels,

a tray of beautiful soaps and some lush,

green plants. Invest in a new shower

curtain or laundry hamper, and maybe a

sleek, modern towel rail.

Clean clean clean

Cleaning is a mandatory part of

selling your home: have carpets, rugs

and upholstery commercially cleaned

and sanitised, clean drapes and blinds to

look like new, polish glass and furniture,

wash down all surfaces and fittings in

the bathroom and kitchen, clean all light

fittings, wash windows inside and out,

deodorise your home to eliminate any

odours from pets, cooking or smoke.

Outdoor spaces

Even a small patio, deck or terrace

can be enhanced with a café table and

chairs. Add some colourful accessories –

placemats, candle lamps, pots and plants,

and there you have an extra living area.

If space is not limited, hang a hammock,

string some outdoor lights, position a

garden sculpture or create a water feature

that buyers will love.

Hire a handyman

Squeaking doors, dripping taps, cracked

tiles, broken fences, leaking toilets or

appliances that don’t work are a turn-off

for buyers. If you can’t repair or replace

things yourself, then hire a handyman to

make sure everything in your home works

as it should.

Finish it first

Buyers want to see a finished home,

not one that’s still being fixed! So finish

everything before you list your home

for sale, then launch it onto the market

when it looks its absolute best – you have

nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Buying a lifestyle block

City life getting you down? Dreaming of

living in the country, where you ‘commute’

from the breakfast table to a barn or your

home office? It might look like an easy life but

buying a lifestyle property can be a complex

business.

While living in the country has much

to recommend it, you need to do more

preparation for buying a place there than

buying a pair of gumboots and comparing

the merits of ride-on mowers.

“We recommend comprehensive due

diligence when buying any kind of property,

but rural ones come with a whole extra set of

things to think about compared to buying a

straightforward stand-alone home in town,”

says Kevin Lampen-Smith, chief executive of

the Real Estate Authority (REA).

Lampen-Smith says that while it’s tempting

to focus on the dream wish list for your

bucolic bolt-hole, but you should also

compile a list of issues to be aware of (and

people who can help you learn about them).

“If the property you like is being sold by a

licensed real estate agent, remember that you

can ask them anything you like about it,” he

says.

“Rural real estate agents have special skills

in this area and they’ll be able to help you

figure out what information you need to

make a well-informed decision. It’s also a

good idea to get your lawyer onboard early to

check titles, consents and other information

that you gather in the process.”

It might feel like you’re getting away from

it all when moving out of town, but rural

developments can be subject to rules that

restrict what you can do. Lampen-Smith

recommends getting your lawyer to check if

there are any covenants on the property that

might have an impact on a future business

you may run there, or any planned building

projects. You don’t want to invest in an

alpaca herd for your new dream property

only to find that it’s not allowed to carry any

livestock. Similarly, it would be tough to

discover that your subdivision plans are not

permitted by council rules.

Be aware that there may be tax implications

if you’re planning to use the property as a

business, Lampen-Smith says.

“In general, if it is currently being used for

a business that is tax-registered – whether

that’s selling organic eggs, grazing stock

or running a B&B – then the seller will

probably add GST to the price. This means

you’ll pay an extra 15 per cent, unless you are

also registered for GST. Ask your lawyer or

accountant to check if the house or any other

buildings on the property are GST-exempt.

They will also be able to advise you on

whether you need to be GST-registered.”

A good place to start when trying to figure

out what tax obligations might attach to your

purchase of the property is Inland Revenue’s

property tax decision tree (available at

http://www.ird.govt.nz/property/propertyterms-and-tools/property-decision-tree/),

but keep in mind that it is always best to

seek professional advice before you make a

decision.

Rural properties (like all properties) can

also have easements on the title that relate to

access, water or power. Lampen-Smith says

you should ask your lawyer to check the title

and work out what the easements are, and

how they will have an impact on your rights

and responsibilities as an owner.

“For example, if the title allows a neighbour

access to a piece of their land through your

property, do you have any right to limit the

type and frequency of that access if you buy

it?”

Be aware too that there may be ‘unofficial’

easements operating; the incumbent owners

may have an informal arrangement with their

neighbours, but this may not remain when

the property passes into new ownership.

Things that we take for granted when living

in urban environments, like water, sewage

and access, can require more involvement in

rural areas. Check the water sources for the

property – if it has its own bore, are there

limits on the amount of water you can draw

from it? What is the process for ensuring it is

safe to drink? What happens to wastewater

and sewage? Are you prepared for life with

a septic tank? Will the current owner ensure

the tank is empty as a condition of sale?

When it comes to access, will you share

a private road or right of way with other

properties? What will be your responsibilities

and potential costs for maintaining it? Don’t

forget that your neighbours may be involved

in unglamorous activities at ungodly hours –

check the zoning rules for nearby properties

if you’re worried about noise, smells or traffic.

You might think it’s lovely to have stock

grazing out the window, but are you ready for

a milk tanker driving past every morning? Be

aware that the LIM will not always alert you

to any pending or current NZTA decisions

regarding local highway linkages that often

divert traffic away from urban centres in

favour of immediate rural areas on the town

boundary. Check with NZTA if you think

your property could be affected by road

changes.

“Like all property purchases, buying a place

in the country requires careful, objective

consideration,” Lampen-Smith says.

“There are lots of great things about living

on the land, but it’s best to be realistic about

it. You don’t want to be like the former townie

I met a few weeks ago, who mournfully told

me that their lifestyle block had become “a

life sentence”. Do your homework and you’re

far more likely to live happily ever after in

rural bliss.”

New Neighbourhood offers

coMMUNIty & LIfestyLe close to the city

An attractive new neighbourhood

on the outskirts of Christchurch

being developed by reputable

building company Generation Homes

is creating plenty of interest among

new-home buyers.

Comprising a limited number of

sites, the Copper Ridge subdivision

on Halswell Junction Road offers the

opportunity to live in an exclusive

residential area conveniently close

to Christchurch city. New residents

can enjoy all the retail and service

amenities of Halswell as well as

historic parks and trails for recreational

enjoyment near by.

Copper Ridge is ideal for people at all

stages of life, including young families,

with the new Knights Stream Primary

School next door, and a bike track,

skate park and sports field across the

road. In fact, the aim of Generation

Homes is to build communities,

not just new builds, company

spokesperson Nadja Beker says.

We aim to create

security for families, fun

for the kids to play outside

with their neighbours and

friends, and for people to

know each other and look

out for each other.

The subdivision lots are being released

in six stages. Stages one and two

were released earlier this year with

introductory pricing and there are

a small number of lots left in these

stages, Nadja says.

“Based on the success of stages one

and two, stage three release has just

been brought forward, and includes

nine lots.”

The lot sizes range from 250sqm

duplex lots up to large 715sqm lots,

with the majority being 500sqm to

650sqm. Prices for the house and

land packages start at $459,000,

with the majority being priced

between $550,000 and $700,000.

“The subdivision covenants will

ensure a high-quality environment

and building designs throughout the

development.” Nadja says.

Generation Homes is an established,

national home builder with

considerable experience in the

Christchurch market, and specialising

in providing home and land packages

in the most desirable locations.

“We develop architecturally designed

house plans for each of our sites, and

can change existing plans or develop

new plans to suit individual clients’

requirements. “The Generation Homes

team works in partnership with each

of their clients to deliver their dream

home and to make the building

process as easy and stress free as

possible.” Nadja says.

“One of the key advantages for clients

working with Generation Homes is

that we provide people certainty

by offering fully fixed prices and a

guaranteed move-in date.”

Generation Homes also has the

services of interior designer Mark

Evans of Indigo Designers to call on.

Mark undertakes a complete colour

consultation with every client, ensuring

the décor of their new home matches

their personality and lifestyle.

Property Market Update

with Matson & Allan Real Estate

Rolleston Property

Development

Unstoppable

Torlesse Estate

Not many local businesses are as old as

Selwyn real estate firm Matson and Allan,

which dates back to the 1800s. With offices

in Rolleston, Leeston and Darfield, its

team is well placed to observe property

trends.

Owner, Chris Flanagan says Rolleston’s

massive expansion seems unstoppable.

Lincoln and Prebbleton have also seen

considerable growth with smaller

developments in West Melton, Leeston,

Darfield, Kirwee and Southbridge.

Chris says Rolleston is a supply and

demand situation with large tracts of land

still to be developed. With the current

slight oversupply, buyers are taking time

to decide so a property’s selling price

needs to be right. As supply eases back, the

market should correct itself.

Buyers from Christchurch are

attracted by Selwyn’s country setting

and the prospect of a brand new home

for the price of an older one in town.

Increased amenities, industrial growth,

The Warehouse, other larger businesses,

and the future motorway make this area

attractive. Easier, quicker access to the city

may also lift house values, long-term.

Some Rolleston families are upsizing

as they grow, however Chris sees little

downsizing with Rolleston’s make-up

mainly middle-aged and young families.

In contrast, West Melton has been a town

where people want space for a business,

their toys, or the children to play.

Matson and Allan are agents for

Branthwaite (Rolleston) where the bulk

of the 300 sections have sold in just 12

months, and the smaller newer Bellfield

subdivision in Southbridge, consisting of

55 affordable sections, which are selling

steadily.

Torlesse Estate just a kilometre from

Darfield is to be released in stages. Land

sizes range from 11 one hectare blocks

to 170 sections of 1,000-5,000sqms and a

few smaller sections in a rural setting with

green space and walkways to town.

Chris says people weigh up the saving

on land against the cost of travel and when

petrol prices rise, the market tends to slow.

“The further out you go, there tends

to be fewer buyers so the price must

be attractive to account for a longer

commute,” reminds Chris.

Canterbury has such a great farming

reputation and is a popular place to farm

because of its versatility and productive

soils so prices reflect this.

“The last two dairy farms I sold achieved

the highest price per hectare for dairy

farm sales in New Zealand,” says Chris.

“We are finding many farmers are

prepared to pay more to be closer to

amenities, airports, good schooling and

city life,” explains Chris.

Lifestyle block sales are steady in

Selwyn. Buyers fall away once the price is

over $1million. Chris says GST can also

be a key as people who purchased their

blocks 15-20 years ago claimed the GST so

must pay the GST when selling, pushing

the price up. GST registration is now

discouraged for non-productive lifestyle

blocks.

Matson and Allan is an independently

owned and locally operated business with

agents who live and work locally and sell

real estate 100% of their time, they form

relationships with their communities,

emphasise customer service and followup.

Protecting your family’s privacy and

security when holding an open home

When selling a property, many people

are uncomfortable with the idea of

strangers looking through their house

when they’re not present. However,

holding an open home is often the best

way to show off the place to potential

buyers.

Welcoming house hunters (and let’s

be honest, a few nosy neighbours) to a

property does come with privacy and

security risks that vendors should be

aware of – and plan for.

“It’s natural for sellers to have concerns

about privacy and security – after all,

you’re inviting complete strangers into

your family’s home,” says Real Estate

Authority (REA) Chief Executive Kevin

Lampen-Smith.

Lampen-Smith suggests sellers prepare

by taking note of any items of sentimental

or monetary value that should be removed

from the property.

“Think about items that could easily be

slipped into a pocket or handbag, such as

jewellery, silverware, small electronics or

even the prescription medication stored

in your bathroom cabinet. Tucking them

away in your sock drawer or under your

bed won’t do the trick,” Lampen-Smith

says.

Something that’s often overlooked by

sellers opening their house to potential

buyers is the risk of identity theft. It might

sound far-fetched, but sellers who leave

important documents like passports,

bank statements or credit card receipts

lying around are leaving themselves

vulnerable. Lampen-Smith recommends

these sorts of documents be tidied away

and stored somewhere secure.

Next, do a digital sweep of the property.

The family PC or office desktop should

be switched off and password protected.

USB sticks or hard drives that are loaded

with personal information should also be

stored securely.

“While this might sound like plain

old common sense to many, I’ve heard

of a seller leaving a post-it note with the

house alarm code right next to the alarm,

for anyone to come back and deactivate

later,” Lampen-Smith recalls.

Sellers should talk to their real estate

agent or salesperson about how the actual

open home will be conducted.

“Ask if there will be a sign-in register,

where visitors provide their name and

contact information when they arrive at

the showing. This is a helpful tool for the

agent when it comes to following up with

potential buyers, and, in the case that

something is damaged or stolen during

the open home, the information can be

passed onto police,” Lampen-Smith says.

The agent is required to be present at

the viewing and shouldn’t leave potential

buyers alone at the property. Ideally,

the agent should accompany visitors as

they tour the house, but this isn’t always

possible if the showing gets busy. Sellers

could ask that a second person from the

real estate agency be on-site during the

open home, to greet visitors at the door,

ask them to sign in and wait until the

agent is free to show them through.

Sellers who still feel uneasy about

having an open home could ask the agent

to show the property ‘by appointment

only’ to potential buyers.

“There’s no law saying you must have

an open home. Remember, it’s your

house and ultimately you don’t have to do

anything you’re uncomfortable with,” says

Lampen-Smith.
