ROLLESTON TOILET TAGGING

Police want to identify these people

• By Emily O’Connell

POLICE ARE appealing to the

public to help identify three people

after toilets were tagged in two

Rolleston parks.

Graffiti was drawn on toilets

in Brookside Park between 5.32-

5.36pm on January 3 and on toilets

at Rolleston Reserve between 12.03-

12.19am on January 5.

Sergeant Alex Pickover appealed

for the public to help identify those

in the photos (right).

Hundreds of dollars were spent on

removing the graffiti.

The Rolleston Reserve Management

Committee is responsible for

both parks and its chairman Jens

Christensen said it was disappointed

with the tagging incidents.

“The committee has a policy of

zero tolerance of crime including

vandalism and all offending

is reported to the police,” Mr

Christensen said.

He said along with the committee

spending hundreds of dollars on

the materials to remove the tags,

caretakers have spent “quite a bit

of time” removing the graffiti and

searching recorded footage for

suspects.

Mr Christensen said there are 22

cameras in Rolleston Reserve and

several in Brookside Park.

IF YOU have a Toyota Hilux and you don’t

happen to be driving it, make sure it’s

locked.

They have been disappearing at a

concerning level in the district (see page 3).

Selwyn police don’t have a tally as

to how many were stolen in the district during 2018, but in

Christchurch 133 were whisked away by thieves.

In 2017 and 2018, the Hilux was the second best selling new

vehicle in the country.

Older models are being stolen for parts.

So if you have a Hilux, make sure it’s in the garage at night.

Police have gone proactive in their bid to clamp down on

tagging in Rolleston (see page 1).

They have released photos of three gentlemen they’d like to

have a word with.

Theft of Toyota Hiluxes

a ‘constant issue’ in the district – police

• By Anan Zaki

A POPULAR ute has caught the

attention of thieves.

Toyota Hiluxes are being

stolen in large numbers across

Canterbury.

In Christchurch last year,

133 were stolen and more were

taken in Selwyn

and North

Canterbury.

Rolleston

Senior Sergeant

Pete Stills

said the theft

of Hiluxes

Pete Stills

has been a

“constant issue”

in Selwyn.

He recommends people secure

their vehicles in a garage or fit

them with an immobiliser or

alarm.

Acting Canterbury district

commander Inspector

Peter Cooper said due to its

popularity, the ute is being

“routinely targeted.”

Older models may also be

stolen for parts, he said.

In 2017 and 2018, the

Hilux was the second best

selling new vehicle in New

Zealand. The top selling vehicle

was the Ford Ranger ute.

Rangiora Sergeant Colin

Stewart said there was a

“significant increase” in Hilux

thefts in the area about two

months ago.

“We go through stages where

it appears they target Hiluxes.

Man seriously

injured after

tractor ignites

• By Anan Zaki

A MAN was taken to hospital

with smoke inhalation after

a tractor fire near Leeston on

Sunday.

Two fire trucks from Leeston

and Dunsandel were called to a

property on Allens Rd at about

1.55pm.

Firefighters saw a middle-aged

man sitting on grass near a shed

where the tractor was stored.

He was taken to Christchurch

Hospital in a serious condition, a

St John Ambulance spokesman

said.

The shed was not

damaged from the fire, Leeston

chief fire officer Lloyd Clausen

said.

“It was contained in probably

about 10 minutes,” he said.

“The initial call was that there

was a tractor inside a shed and

we expected to see the shed fully

engulfed in flames. But luckily it

was just the tractor.”

The cause of the fire was

unknown at this stage, he

said.

The tractor had not been

used for four days when the fire

started.

Library ready for more users

• By Emily O’Connell

AMONG THE new

developments in Tai Tapu is

a historic building that needs

people – the library.

The library, which has a long

history in the area, was opened

at its Old Tai Tapu Rd site in

1932.

Head librarian Marian

White is wanting more people

to make the most of the library

and says it could be used as

a meeting place for different

groups, such as a children’s

play group or craft group.

“We just thought we’d like

to let people know that the

building was available for

other things beside being a

library,” Mrs White said.

The library, which is run by

volunteers, has a small kitchen,

a computer, WiFi, a large table

which could be used for craft

work and group sessions and

a big lawn suitable for outdoor

activities.

Mrs White said the library

has a “particularly good”

children’s area and “the best”

collection of non-fiction books

about New Zealand in the

district.

She said it has “at least” 200

books about New Zealand,

from very historic ones to the

latest reads.

Popular genres in the library

include modern and historic

fiction along with children’s

books, Mrs White said.

She said the library has

a lot of “local books and

information” and librarians

can assist people in finding

out more about their family

history.

There is no charge for

people or groups wanting

to use library and it’s open

from 2-4pm on Tuesdays and

Thursdays and from 10amnoon

on Saturdays. Mrs White

said groups are welcome to

use the library outside of its

opening hours.

•If you are interested in

using the library or would

like more information

phone Mrs White on 329

6021.

HISTORY: Head

librarian Marian White

is encouraging the

community to make the

most of the Tai Tapu Library

and its facilities.

“I dream of a Pacific where this terrible disease has

been eradicated and can no longer cause fear, stigma

and discrimination in families and communities.”

Lorena and three of her children were diagnosed with leprosy.

Lorena says “Although our leprosy could be cured, we knew that

sometimes there can be serious effects from the disease, like

disabilities. I was terrified that more of my children would get sick.

But then the Pacific Leprosy Foundation started its new programme

which gives medicine to the rest of the family so that they are

much less likely to get leprosy. It was wonderful to have that

reassurance! Now I want the rest of the countries in the Pacific

to be able to take part in this programme, but I know that costs a lot

of money.”

treatment for one household contact of a

leprosy patient.

A gift of $420 enables the treatment of an

average household in Kiribati, Samoa or the

Cancer battler’s condition deteriorates

• By Anan Zaki

THE CONDITION of a Rolleston

woman using alternative

treatments to treat breast cancer

has deteriorated dramatically.

Nina Rodger’s husband Bruce

told Selwyn Times yesterday she

was taken to hospital on Sunday

and was transferred to Nurse

Maude hospice in Christchurch.

Her situation was not good.

Mrs Rodger, a mother of two,

was diagnosed with breast cancer

three years ago and her stage 4

cancer had spread through her

body.

In early December, Mrs Rodger,

36, was using alternative methods

– including a change of diet,

natural supplements and oils.

“Things were slowly going

downhill after Christmas,” he

said.

“Last Monday, she got checked

into hospital because she had fluid

in her lungs.”

Doctors drained more than two

litres of fluid from her lungs, Mr

Rodger said.

“It was in an area that was only

meant to have 2mL [of fluid],” he

said.

After draining the fluid, doctors

thought her condition would

improve and came up with a

chemotherapy plan.

“She got sent home on Thursday

and she immediately started

going downhill. Lymphangitis

just happened to take over her

lung,” Mr Rodger said.

Fluid in the body was filling

up Mrs Rodger’s lungs and made

breathing difficult.

Her family has been at her

bedside since being transferred to

the hospice.

“Nina is a fighter. The most

important part is our faith. We’re

not giving up on a miracle,” Mr

Rodger said.

“The kids took it hard. Having

to be told this [Monday] morning,

it was the hardest thing I have

ever done in my life.”

Family and friends had rallied

around for “amazing” support, he

said.

The family had also received

support from the public since the

Selwyn Times article about Mrs

Rodger last month. “People are

phenomenal. Just the messages

of hope and donations were

amazing,” Mr Rodger said.

Police want

help to

find taggers

•From page 1

District council property

and commercial manager

Douglas Marshall said the

tagged toilets at Rolleston Reserve

were installed in January

last year and cost $170,709.

Mr Marshall said there has

been an increase in the cost of

graffiti clean-up in Selwyn this

financial year compared to the

last year.

“In the period from June

to November 2018, tagging

removal has cost the district

council about $14,000, compared

to $6000 for 2017/18

financial year,” he said.

“In addition to the above

costs, graffiti is also removed

by local caretakers or via

members of the local volunteer

reserve committees,” he

said.

Sergeant Alex Pickover believes

the tagging at the parks

was done out of boredom.

He wants anyone who

recognises the tags or

the people to phone the

Rolleston Police Station

on 363 7400 and quote the

reference 190107/9848 for the

Rolleston Reserve incident

and 190104/1753 for the

Vehicle involved in head-on

crash had baby on board

A BABY and three others

escaped unharmed after

a head-on crash at

Waimakariri Gorge

Rd on Saturday.

involved in the

crash.

The vehicles

were travelling at

about 40km/h near

the Waimakariri

Gorge bridge when

they crashed, Mr

Croy said.

“It was enough to get the

two vehicles damaged. The

airbags had gone off in the

Kia and the front wheels

had gone off in the Nissan

ute,” he said.

Further work

for Sparks Rd

• By Anan Zaki

WORK HAS started on a new

cycleway and infrastructure

upgrades in Halswell and Hoon

Hay.

The city council project will

take place on Sparks Rd, between

Victors and Hendersons Rds.

Work started last week.

Construction of the water main

will take several months, the city

council said.

Contractors from Fulton Hogan

will first trench the intersection,

place in the water pipes and then

backfill the area.

The new cycleway – part of the

Quarryman’s Trail route – will

also take several months to complete.

Work on both the cycleway and

water main is expected to finish

by the end of July and work will

be carried out between 7am and

7pm every day.

Lane shifts and shoulder

closures will be in place while

the work is being carried out and

residents will have access to their

properties at all times, the city

council said.

Last year, the city council

completed work on the first

stage of the Quarryman’s Trail

between Moorhouse Ave and

Victors Rd.

it makes a whole heap of sense

they still have plenty to keep the

They’re the perfect blend of

Fire rages, homes at risk

year, we prepared for her arrival

via caesarean at 10.31am on

Friday, January 12.

I’m not ashamed to admit that

in spite of my unflappably stiffupper-lipped

support of Laura

through the operation, I was a

blubbering wreck as soon as I

saw Vittoria.

Just under a week later we

brought her home. She was

such a quiet wee thing, mostly

sleeping.

It was terrifying and exciting.

I feel like I’m getting pretty

good at parenting, which is good

because she is no longer quiet or

prone to sleeping.

In fact over the last few days

she decided she didn’t need three

naps a day anymore, as she is a

big girl now. She also worked on

polishing her tantrum abilities

and showed signs of getting

picky with food (shudder).

But she’s still just as keen on

cuddles as she’s ever been, is

laughing a lot and is always

curious about the world around

her.

I hope those things don’t

change for a long time to come.

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.

WILD: Feral cats have come under the spotlight after the

Springfield Township Committee presented a deputation on

them to the district council at its meeting last month. ​

RAID: Cigarettes

and cash were

stolen in a

break-in at

Lincoln’s

Robert Street

Convenience

Store.

A reader responds to a

Selwyn Times article on a

call to eradicate feral cats

Rob Anderson – I’m in favour

of this but with some reservations.

The whole project needs

to be managed in such a way that

the residents are given plenty of

notice that a culling programme

is planned. We need dates, times

and locations of the eradication

programme so that people who

are cat owners living in proximity

to bushland, reserves and

associated areas planned for

culls can take precautions like

microchipping their pets and/or

keeping them out of harm’s way.

How about offering cat owners a

rates rebate in return for having

their pets microchipped – just a

nominal amount of $10 or $20

per cat would be an incentive and

help the council get to grips with

the real problem?

Readers respond to a

Lincoln dairy being ramraided

in the early hours of

New Year’s Eve

Stefano De Filippi – And

that’s what happens when the

Government makes it more

difficult for people who smoke.

Going to get worse as the price

goes up.

Leonie Underdown – I

hope that sanity prevails before

someone is killed.

Eninaj Ram – So this is their

next option, poor dairy owners

no matter what they do they will

Our People

SELWYN TIMES

Fire chief and rural postie has a

Sheffield chief fire officer

Neville Croy, 67, has been

firefighting for 47 years.

Emily O’Connell talks

to him about why he

became a firefighter, his

most memorable call-out

and his love of cars

How long have you been a

firefighter?

Since 1971.

Why did you join?

Most probably to help people

in need, because every time the

siren goes someone is needing

some help. And to help the

community out.

Is anyone in your family also

a firefighter?

Yes, my dad Wilfred was one

of the foundation committee

members when it was the

Sheffield Volunteer Rural

Firefighting Committee. That

was from 1956 to 1964 he did

that, before it became part of

the fire service. Him and a

chap with name of Pat Keating

bought the local service station,

they had this local garage, the

Sheffield Garage. There was a

new garage built in about 1951 I

think and when they got the fire

engine in 1956, it was stored in

what used to be the old garage.

They bought it from the New

Brighton Fire Brigade and it was

a 1922 Leyland and that’s now

in Ferrymead Heritage Park. My

younger brother David was also

a firefighter but he moved over

to Australia. He was in it for six

years.

Do you remember what your

first call-out was?

The first one of any recognition

was the Springfield Hotel.

What happened there?

It just caught fire, where they

used to store the kegs of beer. We

were sitting on the back of an old

Ford V8 and I had just got home

from town so it was about 2am

or 3am and it was a freezing cold

winter’s morning and we had

to sit on the back all the way to

Springfield.

How did you feel going to that

call-out?

Nervous because you don’t

know what you’re going to and

that. I was young and fearless,

and you didn’t seem to think

about it, you just did it.

How and when did you come

to being the chief firefighter?

I think I’ve been a fire chief

for 36 or 37 years now . . . you

went from fireman, then you

were secretary, then you were

treasurer, then you were station

officer, then senior station officer,

you went through the ranks.

What are your

responsibilities as chief?

As chief, the main one these

days is fireman health and safety

and well-being. And just to

make sure the brigade is running

alright, and your finances are

kept right, it’s just like running a

business.

What has been your most

memorable call-out and why?

Oh there have been so many.

I was working up at Springfield

at the time, and we had a

motor vehicle accident call to

Windwhistle which is miles away

and it was a load of Japanese

people and the person who

passed away was the only one

who could speak English. That

was my first MVA. I was in the

Sheffield brigade but Springfield

got called out and when I was

working up in the garage there, I

would go with them.

What do you enjoy about

firefighting?

The camaraderie and being

with 16 guys who you can totally

trust in and go into a lot of

situations where most people

would walk away from, knowing

that those guys would stick

right behind you . . . and you’re

helping people out.

What is the hardest part

about being a firefighter?

The hardest part would be

commitment to the fire service

to do your job properly and

yet still have a home life. The

hours that sometimes are

expected of you and that you do,

your children and partner can

go to lots of things or do things,

that you should be part of and

can’t because you’re out doing

something else. Which is

a totally voluntary thing, it’s

your call to do that but that’s

the hardest thing I suppose as

well as telling someone their

loved one has been hurt, things

like that, that’s not the nice side

of it.

Were you helping out during

the Port Hills fire and/or

earthquakes?

Yes we had crews going to the

earthquake and the Port Hills

fire.

How were those experiences?

I suppose it was just the same,

a fire is a fire, it was hilly and

we have hills out here with

Porters Pass and all that. Local

HUNTER

knowledge of where to go was

a big thing. Country guys in

that town area, it takes a bit to

get your bearings. It went well.

I was pleased with our brigade’s

performance anyway.

How do you process the

tragedy you experience as a

firefighter?

The fire service has got a really

good support system with Fire

and Emergency New Zealand

now. It’s improved ten-fold over

the years. Normally, we sit down

the guys at the station and we

can have a yarn. For a while I

was a solo dad and the support

system wasn’t as efficient as it is

now. You used to just put it out

of your mind and just think of

the next one. But I’ve got a really

good partner now, Heather, and

so if I have to say something,

she’s there and it stays there, it

stays in-house . . . you don’t get

hardened to it, but unfortunately

it’s a part of life.

one lives in Australia,

Sarah, and Rach lives in Kaiapoi.

Sheffield get a year?

I had my very first job when

I was 17-years-old was on the

toll exchange at the post office. I

managed Apex Tyres in Darfield

for a while, I got the sack from

Dunlop because I wouldn’t join

the union and then I bought the

rural mail run . . . and then when

I got married I went and worked

for Bandag and my wife Rosie

did the mail. And then when we

took the garage over from dad,

he took over the mail run. We

had the garage for about seven or

eight years and when we sold that,

I bought the mail back off him . .

. I’ve got the combined Sheffield

and Springfield rural mail run

now. When I’m not doing the

mail, I’m trying to sell cars.

What schools did you go to?

Sheffield Primary School and

Darfield High School.

What are some of your

hobbies?

Cars, going to car shows,

family and our wee dog Sophie

now into cars as well, and I are

SMALL GRASS FIRE

It took Rolleston and Burnham

firefighters a few minutes to

extinguish a small grass fire

in Rolleston at about 8pm on

Thursday. Senior station officer

Graham Petersen suspects the

blaze, on the corner of Two

caused by a bird striking a

not cause any damage.

Positive impact

from youth council

Former

Selwyn

Youth

Council

chairwoman

Paige

Sullivan reflects

on some of its

achievements last

year

THE SELWYN Youth

Council finished the year

in high spirits with the

success of Boost Out, the

youth council’s final Boost

2018 event. It included

a skate jam, live mural

paintings, food trucks,

and live youth bands.

There is the possibility of

the 2019/20 youth council

to continue this now

established set of events.

The youth council is

appreciative of the support

the community has shown

us through these events,

specifically through a large

turnout at Boost Spook, a

haunted house maze.

The 2019/20 youth council

has now been selected. I

am excited to see what this

group will bring to the table,

with a large diversity of

ages and experiences that

will represent the youth

of Selwyn for the next two

years.

Selwyn Link has proven

to be successful in pushing

for change in our public

transport. There are currently

two trials proposed

by Metro and Environment

Canterbury – Leeston

to Christchurch and

Darfield to Christchurch.

Surveys were collected via

the Metro website and also

through letterbox drops

in the relating townships.

Survey responses closed

last month.

The youth council also

recently distributed a

Selwyn Youth Residents

Survey. The results of these

have been collected, and

have shown that:

•97 per cent of young

people feel safe, secure and

comfortable in their community

•93 per cent of young

people feel that they can be

themselves in Selwyn

•94 per cent of young

people believe that council

facilities are good

There were also lots

of new ideas and also

concerns presented

through the survey

responses, which gives the

2019/20 youth council a

solid foundation to build

from. This will help them

to ensure they are meeting

the wants and needs of

young people living in

Selwyn.

•If you would like

to get in touch with

the youth council,

email youth.council@

Leeston pupils help

SCHOOLS

SELWYN TIMES

restore choked creek

ABOUT 70 Leeston

Consolidated School pupils were

put to work last month helping

to restore Selwyn’s Snake Creek.

The creek, a tributary of

the Silverstream River, is an

important trout spawning

stream and home to native

species, such as the endangered

long fin eel.

The stream becomes choked

every year with water weeds

which means it has to be cleared

out with a digger. The weeds also

lead to the build up of sediment

on the streambed which is not

good for stream life.

This was the problem the

Leeston pupils were tasked with

solving.

To do this they visited the

site and made a plan to create

shade that would suppress the

weeds.

The plan involved reshaping

the banks which were too steep

to plant on, designing a planting

plan and also the addition of

features in the stream, such as

boulders and wood for habitat.

Fulton Hogan donated the

earthmoving equipment and

operators, and, armed with the

pupils’ plan, reshaped the bank

The pupils were guided

by Matt Stanford from

project was an opportunity to

connect young people to a local

about its issues and how to care

Newest generation

well catered for

Lincoln University Childcare and Preschool

has now been around for 30 years and former

pupils could be bringing their own children

to experience what they had before.

It was opened in 1988 to provide education

and care for the children of families of the

staff and students of Lincoln University,

local research organisations and the Lincoln

community.

The centre has a separate under-two area

that allows the children to play and learn

in a safe and developmentally appropriate

environment.

New under-twos can now also get their first

month free.

All children have a primary caregiver who

is responsible for ensuring that children’s

individual needs are being met, for example

in feeding, settling in and feeling secure in the

centre. Having a primary caregiver enables

infants and toddlers to build a sense of trust

with the people who care for them.

The centre can take up to 12

children on the under-two side

to ensure providing care and

education of the highest quality.

The teachers all have extensive

training and experience in

working with children of this age

group.

Staff are observant and

responsive to children’s needs,

strengths and interests and

promote positive relationships

among children that promote

cooperative play.

Advertising Feature

They also employ good-quality individual

assessment and planning that helps teachers

respond to and build on children’s interest

and strengths.

Each child’s progress is recorded in their

profile books and their individual learning

programmes are recorded there too. Parents

are invited to contribute their knowledge and

ideas for the development of their children’s

learning opportunities.

Children have access to a wide range of

learning experiences that include individual,

small and large groups, based on Te Whāriki

(the Early Childhood curriculum).

Te Whāriki, expresses the centre’s

philosophy, supporting every child to be

confident and competent learners, strong

in their identity, language and culture, and

forming strong partnerships with families.

Backyard Critters

When the caterpillar

becomes a moth

A RECENT find in my

garden was the common

bag moth liothula

omnivora.

The caterpillar of this

species lives within a

tapered silk bag that it

constructs a few days after

hatching.

The larvae continue to

enlarge the bag as they

grow in size, with the bags

reaching 50mm in length.

The silk bags are

camouflaged with small

twigs, bark and leaf

fragments attached to the

external surface.

Bags containing females

have the fragments

placed near the sharp end

only, whereas the more

industrious male adorns its

entire bag with fragments.

The larvae are nocturnal

and poke their heads

and legs out of the wide

end of the bag to feed on

the branch.

If disturbed, larvae

will retreat into the bag.

During the day, the bag is

attached to a branch with

very strong silk.

Pupation occurs during

winter when the bag is

securely tied to vegetation.

Only the adult males form

wings and fly, while the

females remain in their

bags and resemble a more

larval, rather than adult,

form.

Male moths mate with

females by extending

their telescopic abdomen

through the narrow end of

the bag.

The female lays the eggs

within the bag and dies

soon after.

When larvae hatch, they

emerge from the narrow

end of the bag, sometimes

on silk to disperse in the

Big T20 wins for Southbrook

and Leeston-Southbridge

SOLID: Ben Donkers helped

Leeston-Southbridge chase

down Weedons’ paltry total of

96 on Saturday.

THE HOLIDAYS did nothing

to stem the dominance of

Southbrook and Leeston-

Southbridge, which both notched

their first country cricket wins of

the year on Saturday.

In a weather-affected

‘nearest neighbour’ round of

the CRV Ambreed country

premier twenty20 competition,

the Cheviot v Kaiapoi and

Oxford-Rangiora v Darfield

fixtures were rained off.

A bizarre low-scoring grind

was played out at Southbrook

Park. On what appeared to be a

pitch devoid of demons, the home

side was rolled by the visiting

Sefton for a paltry 63 runs.

But any thoughts of an easy

Sefton victory were quickly

erased with a stunned Seals squad

reduced to 26/9.

After dropping a catch on the

first ball of the innings, the tight

Southbrook fielding outfit then

caught anything struck above the

ground.

Rising young paceman Anthony

Tavendale was the chief destroyer,

returning the impressive

figures of 4-6 off four overs.

Sefton spluttered through to

43/9 in their 20 overs, recording

a frustrating 20-run defeat.

Weedons won the toss and

elected to bat against competition

leaders Leeston-Southbridge.

The combined side soon had

them under pressure, removing

Weedons stalwart Shanan Dunnett

cheaply.

Fringe Canterbury Country

representative James Richards

made a run-a-ball 28, but a great

over from young off-spinner Will

McFarlane changed the game.

He removed Richards and Sam

Wilson in the same over.

All of the Leeston-Southbridge

bowlers performed well, supported

by some tidy fielding. They

restricted Weedons to just 96/7 in

their 20 overs.

In reply, Leeston-Southbridge

coasted to victory, thanks to

some classy batting from Rupert

Young, Ben Chamberlain and

Ben Donkers. All three were back

in form after the festive break.

Leeston-Southbridge chased

the total down in 15 overs. They

only lost Young, who was run out

attempting a risky single.

Scholarship helps Ella

achieve goals in the pool

• By Emily O’Connell

A ROLLESTON teenager

has been awarded one of the

first ever ISPS Handa talent

scholarships for her efforts in

the pool.

Ella Benn, 15, was one of

The Rolleston College student

had her leg amputated in 2014

after being diagnosed with bone

cancer.

Her cancer has relapsed

twice since and she has had to

undergo further treatment.

Ella, who is currently

cancer-free, says she was “really

shocked” to be awarded the

scholarship.

“I’m really, really happy about

it and I’m proud of myself and

what I’ve achieved to be able to

get that,” she said.

The scholarship will help

Ella get to the Paralympics

Victorian championships in

Melbourne where she hopes to

gain international classification.

Ella, who has been swimming

competitively for four years,

trains at the Canterbury Swim

School in Yaldhurst five days

a week, as well as going to

the gym twice a week. Her

“ultimate” goal is to win a medal

at the Paralympics, but right

Motoring

• By Ross Kiddie

AS AGE HAS caught up with me,

it must be said understanding

the electronics and finer points

of any new car is becoming more

and more challenging.

That being the case, I find

it quite a conquest when I can

climb in and instantly set the air

conditioning to my preferred settings,

find the Sound FM radio

station and zero the trip meter.

That doesn’t always happen

quickly, in some cars it takes time

to work through the complexities

of the operating systems. Not so in

the Skoda Octavia Scout, I jumped

in and had those three prerequisites

mastered in less than a minute,

which sent a clear message that

the car is intuitive and user-friendly

to operate, and I like that.

That’s not the only reason I

warmed to the Octavia Scout, it

is the quintessential mid-size station

wagon. I once had a Mazda

323 wagon as a work car, and I

found it one of the most useful

forms of transport I could have

on a daily basis.

Sadly, only a few manufacturers

still produce the traditional wagon

and fewer still that make smallish

wagons. That aside, the load space

in the Scout is amazing. It measures

610-litres to 1740-litres with

the rear seats folded flat.

In real terms I can report it

came in very handy during the

time my daughter was in the process

of moving abode. I used the

Scout to transport many of her

belongings and found it incredibly

practical, a lot of the latter

due to the small recess on the

boot floor which creates just that

bit extra load space.

The Scout lands here with three

engine options; well, the 2-litre

diesel model has the same engine

but with different power outputs

– 110kW or 135kW – the other

engine is a 1.8-litre petrol unit.

The evaluation car was the

lower powered diesel but, while

I say that, it’s my belief it is perfectly

adequate for the role, I can’t

imagine that any more power is

necessary. In true turbocharged

diesel fashion, the 1968cc engine

develops a hearty 340Nm available

all of the way from 1750rpm

to 3000rpm.

As a consequence, the Scout

in this form still develops strong

performance. Acceleration is crisp,

and throttle response is instant,

there’s no sign of turbo lag and

with it coupled to a seven-speed

direct shift transmission there is

direct drive and quick shifts.

That’s one of the advantages

of direct shift transmission, it

doesn’t eat away at those precious

power figures.

Against the clock the Scout will

reach 100km/h from a standstill

in 9.3sec, and will make a

highway lunge to 120km/h from

80km/h in 6sec, the latter a result

of the healthy mid-range performance

of the modern diesel and

it is a hugely rewarding feeling.

As you would expect, the Scout

also has amazing fuel economy.

The manufacturers claim a 5.2-

litre per 100km (54mpg) combined

cycle rating. That sits well

with the 6.8l/100km (41mpg)

showing on the test car’s trip

computer, along with a frugal

4l/100km (70mpg) instantaneous

readout at 100km/h, the engine

just loping over at 1400rpm.

These figures are no surprise,

I’ve driven with this engine many

times before in other Skoda and

Volkswagen product, it is a beauty,

with quiet operating manners

and efficiency as good as it gets.

I took the test car on one of my

normal routes through the Selwyn

District – Dunsandel to Hororata

– and enjoyed its quiet operating

manner and the comfortable way it

treats its occupants over a distance.

The Scout is no racer, nor is it

intended to be; it is honest everyday

transport. I pushed it hard

into a couple of quick corners

and it responds with accuracy

through the front end and strong

Fire rages, homes at risk

steering feel. Providing the

grip are high quality Michelin

Primacy tyres (225/50 x 17in),

and they have a solid footprint

with the road surface.

Skoda has sprung the Octavia

Scout with softish settings, but

because there is little weight in the

vehicle and with a low centre of

gravity – the Scout is only 1.5m

tall – there is little handling tradeoff,

comfort and ability has been a

high manufacturing criteria.

Yet there is another surprise

with the Scout, it has fourwheel-drive.

With just 171mm

of ground clearance, it can’t be

considered an off-road vehicle,

however, I took the test car onto a

cross-country track to take photos

and was impressed with its

suspension control and in-cabin

comfort over some gnarly bumps

and ruts. I can see it as a good

alternative to the mainstream cars

which tackle the skifield access

roads over winter.

Not only did I put the Scout to

good use during the time it was in

my care, but it also reinforced my

desire for the 2-litre diesel engine.

Sadly, not enough Kiwi buyers

warm to diesel, and I still can’t

quite figure that out. The Scout

in this form would certainly

be a car I would consider as a

functional form of daily transport

and at $48,990 how could you go

wrong?

Tips for easing

into school life

Those first days at school as a new entrant can be an anxious time for

parents, caregivers and your child. There are some simple steps that can

help to ease those first day worries and ensure a smooth transition for

everyone.

Never underestimate the very simple idea of talking with your child –

about what the day will be like, how they will get to school, the teacher’s

name or what they will do. Go shopping together to buy their new lunch

box or back pack and put them aside until their first

day arrives.

Establish a sleep schedule before school starts,

especially if they have had a long holiday or break

from pre-school. The ideal is nine to 10 hours every

night, starting at least a week before school starts so

that you both adjust to the routine.

Plan ahead for ways to make things easier such

as laying out their clothes the night before or prepreparing

week night meals so there is less stress on

everyone and a tired child gets fed quickly if needed.

Think about whether to introduce healthy snacks

and lunches before school starts, particularly if your

child is a fussy eater. Try some new vegetable or fruit

with a dip that can be put in a container in their lunch

box or cut sandwiches in fun shapes.

While it is tempting for your child to be involved in lots

of activities, children need to have downtime, particularly

when they are starting school and dealing with a lot of things

that are new to them. Keep the schedule light until everyone is

settled in to their new routine.

Getting to know the school is also a great idea by playing there during

the weekends or holidays or catching up with friends who will also be

starting school at the same time.

Keep an eye out if you live in Lincoln for all the learners starting at

the new Ararira Springs Primary. They, too, no matter whether they

are new entrants or in Year 8, will be getting used to being at a new

school and new routines.

The Ararira Springs Primary team at the beach

Ararira Springs opens doors

Lincoln south children will be looking

forward to not only a new school year but

a new school as the doors open for the first

time at Ararira

Springs Primary.

New families will

be welcomed to

the school with a

welcome on

Monday 4 February

2019 featuring

a ceremony to

return the sod dug

up when building

first started, tree

planting, walk through the buildings and

morning tea. Lessons will begin the following

day.

Catering to learners from new entrants to

Year 8, Ararira Springs Primary is located

at 18 Russ Drive in Lincoln South and was

established to cater for anticipated growth in

the area and an eventual role of 750.

Core values at the new school are caring,

curious and capable, says Principal Claire

Howison.

“We want to encourage kind children who

care about each other, build on their natural

Playing netball at the new school

curiosity about the world

around them and for them

to also show leadership and

responsibility for their own

actions,” she says.

“The mantra of “it starts with

me” reflects the school’s belief that all

learners need to be active and know they

have a part to play in their own learning.”

As Lincoln is an Envirotown, Ararira Springs

Primary is also an Enviroschool which aims

to foster a generation that thinks and acts

sustainably.

As 2019 gets underway, the Ararira Springs

Primary team is looking forward to opening

its doors of after many months of hard

work. The office opens with limited hours

on Monday 21 January 2019 and more

BACK TO SCHOOL 2018

9,500 learners on

the move again!

Pack a yummy,

healthy lunchbox

From Monday 28 January, over 9,500

Selwyn children will be travelling to school,

that’s nearly 20% of our population on the

move!

Selwyn School Road Safety Co-ordinator

Stephanie Hautler is reminding everyone to

keep their eyes peeled for our young people

heading back to school by bus, bike, car,

scooter and on foot.

With summer finally arriving it’s a great

opportunity to get active with your child.

Even if you are pushed for time, park a

block back from school so that your child

can scoot or walk. It is good for them both

physically and mentally, develops their

road safety skills and helps with overall

congestion at the school gate.

“Road safety awareness is a pretty

important life skill and starts developing

when you are young. Take every

opportunity to educate children on how to

cross a road and watch for cars coming out

of sneaky driveways” says Mrs Hautler.

“The safety of all children is paramount,”

says Senior Sergeant Pete Stills of the New

Zealand Police. “Police will be patrolling

outside schools and pre-schools so as to

reduce the risk posed by speeding vehicles,

illegal parking and dangerous driving

manoeuvres whilst everyone gets used to

children being back at school.”

Road safety resources for parents

and children are available from Selwyn

District Council by emailing stephanie.

hautler@selwyn.govt.nz or phoning

347 2705.

School travel safety tips:

• Be bright be seen, ask your school

for a safety vest.

• Tackle the routes together

talking about sneaky driveways

and blind corners.

• Get out and active together to

reduce the chaos at the school gate.

• Wear your helmets, this goes for

caregivers too, young people are

watching you

School’s back

in Selwyn

Get the new school year off to the right

start with some healthy lunchbox ideas.

And better still get the kids involved.

It will help them learn to make healthy

choices, there will be less food wastage and,

hopefully, they will come home with empty

lunchboxes, too!

Certain foods boost energy and learning

while others impede the thinking process.

for more information

Healthy foods are brain foods as they help

to increase a child’s attention span and

ability to remember.

In contrast, many processed snack foods

are high in carbohydrates and sugar. These

drain the brain and body, having a negative

effect on mental capacity and energy levels

by tiring a person. The same applies to

fatty foods. Even energy drinks can have

a negative effect on your child’s ability to

focus.

Filling lunchboxes with

healthy snacks is easy

Seedy grainy wafers or breads, nuts, fruits

and vegetables are the optimum. Carrot

sticks, cheese, cucumber, celery, snap

peas, boiled eggs and crunchy lettuce cups

filled with cream cheese or peanut butter

are perfect. For a sweet treat, pop in some

blueberries, grapes, strawberries, apple,

banana, segments of orange, mandarins

and dried raisins. They will all be popular.

When thinking beverages, water is the best

while any juices should be natural with no

added sugar or preservatives, remembering

to limit the amount of natural sugars too.

A healthy school lunchbox will ensure

there is plenty of brain food to assist

concentration, learning and overall positive

behaviour.

Being the best of you, as you at Lemonwood Grove

Lemonwood Grove is a new school situated in Rolleston’s popular Faringdon

subdivision.

With a vision of ‘The best of you, as you’, learners experience a personalised

education based on their needs, interests and passions.

As part of the Ministry of Education’s Innovation Programme, the school’s

curriculum is based on sound educational research around the conditions

learners need to be successful in the 21st century.

Foundation Principal Sean Bailey is justifiably proud of his school, backed

up by a very positive report from the Education Review Office. He also has

the support of his team of passionate educators, support staff and board

members who realise how important it is to collaborate and work together to

achieve desired outcomes.

Lemonwood Grove School will start the 2019 year with around 250 learners

up to Year 8. The school has a current capacity for 450 with an eventual

capacity of 750.

New learners

come from

throughout

Canterbury,

New Zealand

and overseas

contributing to the school’s richness and diversity.

One of the special features of Lemonwood Grove is that it shares its site with

special education school Waitaha.

“This is the first time the Ministry of Education has ever built two schools

together and although we have separate principals and boards, there are many

opportunities for us to collaborate together for the benefit of all our learners

as part of an inclusive education,” says Sean.

Lemonwood Grove School opens for Term 1 on Wednesday 30 January 2019

and the school office will be open from Wednesday 23 January 2019 for any

enquiries. More information is available at www.lemonwoodgrove.school.nz.

Lincoln High School students are

benefitting from new courses reflecting the

school’s focus on innovative ways to learn.

Print Media Production and English in

the Outdoors are just two of the courses

introduced last year offering students

options to learn new skills and engage in a

different way of learning.

The production of a 144 page magazine

called Ensemble filled with creative

articles about fashion, travel, food and

entertainment targeted at teenagers is the

end result of a year of hard work by 13 Year

13 students in the course.

Led by student Libby Duncan, Ensemble

is a compilation of articles, reviews

and recipes written by the students and

featuring their own artwork.

“Each student played to their own

strengths and wrote about what they

were passionate about. The end result is

a massive achievement and testament to

their hard work,” says teacher Alisha Wyke.

Learning a conventional subject in a

different way is behind the introduction

of last year’s new English in the Outdoors

course for Year 11 students.

Teacher Kerri Loughhead says the course

was introduced to engage students who

may not do as well in traditional English

classes and features outdoor-themed

books, movies and plays alongside a wide

range of activities such as overnight tramps

incorporating creative writing, visits to the

local reserve and orienteering.

Kerri and her fellow teachers have

enjoyed being able to bring their own love

of outdoors to the students and the course’s

success has led to the addition of a Year 12

course this year.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Tarragon is a handy, hardy herb

• By Henri Ham

A KEEN vege gardener will often

try to grow a few new veges each

year.

And I believe the same

should apply to herbs. The

classics of parsley, chives and

basil will always have a place in

gardeners’ kitchens. But how

about testing your green-fingers

out on some russian tarragon this

summer?

Russian tarragon is a hardy

perennial herb. Its taste can

be likened to a cross between

parsley and chervil (french

parsley).

It’s quite a lanky plant and

can grow up to 80cm tall. It has

slender stems, covered in skinny

green leaves.

Often confused with french

tarragon, the Russian variety is

hardier and more vigorous. Both

types have a distinctive sweet

aniseed flavour, but the Russian

variety is milder. And most

importantly (well, arguably), the

Russian type is easier to grow as

well.

Tarragon flavour is suited to

chicken and fish. Sprinkle over a

whole roast chicken, or fresh fish.

Also use sparingly to shake over

poached eggs, fresh asparagus

and roasted potatoes.

FLAVOURSOME: Tarragon has a sweet aniseed taste, suitable for giving chicken

and fish some zest. It can be grown in a fertile, sunny and well-drained spot in

your garden, or it is particularly successful in a large pot.

Tarragon is the key herb ingredient

in bearnaise sauce – and

is also a popular herb used in

flavouring vinegars. You’ll also

find tarragon in tartare sauce,

alongside capers.

Tarragon likes a fertile, sunny

and well-drained spot in your

garden. Because it grows higher

than most edibles, place it at

the back of your vege or herb

garden.

Once you’ve found your perfect

spot to plant your seedlings,

dig in some compost

and blood and bone fertiliser.

Now you’re ready to plant.

Dig holes roughly 3cm deep and

space the seedlings in them, 45cm

apart. Give them a good initial

watering. But don’t over fertilise,

as this can makes the leaves thicker,

which reduces their flavour.

You can also plant tarragon in

pots. Use a large pot to avoid the

tarragon becoming root bound –

as this can reduce the flavour of

the herb.

Use your outdoor living areas

all year round

• Warm & dry in winter

• UV protection for summer

• Stylish & permanent

• 5 year warranty

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has been a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes t own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

Only eight submi sions were

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

are s eking t operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

Pupils learn about role of war horses

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submission.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l over recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

space, plumbed for water, located in the butler’s pantry. The

kitchen opens out to the sunny & spacious living room that

interconnects, through cavity sliders, with the formal lounge.

Both rooms have stacker sliders that provide easy access to the

large patio & landscaped rear garden. The 4 bedrooms are all

good sized doubles, with the separate study also having the

option to be used as a 5th occasional bedroom, if required.

A separate laundry & large walk-in linen room complete the

floor plan. The finishing touches, which include quality tiled

bathrooms with under-tile heating, carpeting to the drive-thru

double garage, a log burner, 2 heat pumps & an alarm, further

enhance the appeal of this stunning property. Positioned on a

927m2 section, and enjoying an open aspect to mature trees

with no neighbouring homes on 2 boundaries, this is family

perfect both inside & out. Priced keenly for early interest, make

this yours sooner rather than later.

What to ask when you’re

asking for a home loan

Low interest rates and easing restrictions

on home loans may be making property

ownership look more attainable for some

buyers, but that doesn’t mean mortgages

are easy to get.

“If you’ve got your deposit tucked

away and you’re seriously looking for

somewhere to buy, it’s a good idea to start

shopping for a mortgage before you need

one,” says Real Estate Authority (REA)

chief executive Kevin Lampen-Smith.

“The home-buying process can move

fast, and it makes things much easier if

you’ve already got a lender on side. This is

known as pre-approval and it can take a

lot of the uncertainty out of knowing what

you can afford.”

First up, a lender will want to know

how much deposit you have. Most lenders

expect first home buyers to have at least

20 per cent of the amount they want to

borrow. With the average New Zealand

house price now at $550,000, that means

you’ll need to show that you’ve saved

$110,000 if you want to buy a property at

that price. They’ll also ask you how much

you earn and how much you spend, along

with details about any other debts or loans

you might have.

“While the bank or financial institution

needs to make sure you’re a safe risk, there

are two sides to this relationship,” Lampen-

Smith says. “It’s important that you feel

confident about what you’re signing up to

before you commit.”

He says that your first question – after

how much they will let you borrow, and

what the interest rate will be – should be

about fees: what will you have to pay for

taking out this mortgage?

For example, will you have to pay a low

equity fee if you have less than 20 per cent

deposit? Will there be any penalties if you

pay off a chunk of the mortgage early? Can

they waive your normal account fees if you

take out a mortgage?

Sometimes a lender may want to loan

you more than you’re comfortable paying

out of your weekly income.

“Remember that you must be able to

afford the repayments and you don’t have

to borrow up to your highest limits if you

don’t want to,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Ask what the best way is to structure the

mortgage based on your circumstances,

and whether this is flexible if things

change.”

For example, are you better off with a

table loan (where you sign up to make

regular payments for a set term up to 30

years), or will you be able to pay it off

faster if you have a revolving credit loan

or offset mortgage? Also, will you still be

able to afford the mortgage payments if

the interest rate goes up? If the property

needs a lot of renovation work to become

liveable, could an interest-only loan

work? Lampen-Smith says the lender or a

mortgage broker should be able to explain

all the pros and cons of these different loan

types, including how they’ll affect your

payments and the total amount you’ll have

to pay.

Most lenders will require you to have

insurance for a property when taking out

a mortgage. You may be encouraged to

get this insurance through the lender or

sign up to any number of other insurance

policies, such as mortgage protection,

income protection and life insurance.

“Look at these carefully,” Lampen-Smith

says. “Don’t feel pressured to sign up but

do think about how you’ll manage if things

change for you in the future. Life changes

don’t respect the terms of a mortgage

and you might find yourself wanting or

needing to sell the house and buy another

one. Ask the lender if the mortgage (and

its terms and conditions) is portable to

another property.”

Some lenders offer sweeteners to entice

people to sign up with them. Examine the

conditions of these deals carefully. Don’t

let the short-term ‘carrot’ of a $200 gift

voucher blind you to a higher interest rate.

“Signing up to a home loan is like

entering any long-term partnership,” says

Lampen-Smith. “Do your homework

before you commit and you’ll be a lot

better off in the long run.”

For Sale - Rolleston

Offers Invited

As Cantabrians continue to move forward,

when building a new home, here’s a reminder

to pay attention to some of the fine details...

Anyone intending to build a new home

should have the builder’s contract checked

out by an experienced lawyer.

A payment schedule can also minimise

financial risks. Issues that you may have to

deal with include:

the deposit, guarantees and warranties

If you want to compare building

companies, it’s important to get down

to finer details such as how many power

points there are per room, the type of

windows you are having or which paint

finishes are included.

Questions to ask builders include:

• Do you have a completion guarantee

and how does it

work?

• Is there a loss of

deposit guarantee?

• Is the company a

Registered Master

Builder and does

it use third-party

written guarantees?

• What is the

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Great results are possible

with smaller sections

Newer Rolleston subdivisions offering land sizes

upwards of 300 square metres are introducing an era of

denser living, and signalling the town is coming of age.

These more affordable smaller and medium sized

land packages are attracting a wave of first home buyers

to the town.

Currently, sections on the market are priced from

around $155,000 for 400sqm in the new Acland Park,

$165,000 for 500sqm in Goulds Estate and $175,000

for 447sqm in Faringdon, while Newman Park has a

starting price of $190,000 for 685sqm.

Before signing up, it is advisable for prospective

purchasers to determine developer requirements, in

terms of the design approval process and covenants

governing what can be constructed on a section;

checking if there are any design requirements or

dispensations relating to site coverage and building

distances from each boundary. While more site

coverage may be advantageous the downside of this is

that houses can appear crammed in.

Established companies with a history of building in

the Selwyn district have the expertise to guide clients

through these processes, helping ensure a smooth and

hassle-free build.

Less land translates to less work around the yard,

ideal for those who dislike gardening, have work

commitments which eat into their time, or where they

want their weekends free for recreational pursuits.

It is still possible to create attractive outdoor areas

for relaxing and entertaining even with a smaller yard.

Design is the key to making the most of any section,

both in terms of the house itself and landscaping of the

bare dirt outside.

“There’s lots of design options for a small section,”

suggests Evan Beker, co-owner and operator of

Generation Homes South. “It’s a case of working with

clients so they get the right house on the right section

to capture the sun while ensuring outdoor flow in a way

that suits their needs.”

When working with a smaller lot, the solution is to

choose a more compact design which still provides

all the features of a three or four bedroom home like

walk-in robes, reasonable living spaces and a good

sized functional kitchen. To achieve this, Evan and his

team assess where space can be saved, to be used more

effectively elsewhere.

“Even on a smaller footprint, buyers want all the

features of a larger home so minimising certain aspects

like hallways puts space where it counts. Outdoors, we

might subtly narrow the width of the eaves so an area is

more open or to gain more sun,” adds Evan.

With every section differing in size and orientation,

Evan says the secret is addressing how the house and

outdoor features will be used, strategically siting each

for indoor/outdoor flow with sheltered entertaining

areas close to kitchens and living room. Fencing to keep

children and animals safe, courtyards, patios, decks,

small or no lawn, decking and strategic planting may all

combine to creating a stunning setting where there is

intimacy and space for play.

Small sections can have

attractive outdoor areas.

Strategic planting can help create a

stunning setting on a smaller section.
