ROLLESTON TOILET TAGGING<br />

Police want to identify these people<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

POLICE ARE appealing to the<br />

public to help identify three people<br />

after toilets were tagged in two<br />

Rolleston parks.<br />

Graffiti was drawn on toilets<br />

in Brookside Park between 5.32-<br />

5.36pm on <strong>January</strong> 3 and on toilets<br />

at Rolleston Reserve between 12.03-<br />

12.19am on <strong>January</strong> 5.<br />

Sergeant Alex Pickover appealed<br />

for the public to help identify those<br />

in the photos (right).<br />

Hundreds of dollars were spent on<br />

removing the graffiti.<br />

The Rolleston Reserve Management<br />

Committee is responsible for<br />

both parks and its chairman Jens<br />

Christensen said it was disappointed<br />

with the tagging incidents.<br />

“The committee has a policy of<br />

zero tolerance of crime including<br />

vandalism and all offending<br />

is reported to the police,” Mr<br />

Christensen said.<br />

He said along with the committee<br />

spending hundreds of dollars on<br />

the materials to remove the tags,<br />

caretakers have spent “quite a bit<br />

of time” removing the graffiti and<br />

searching recorded footage for<br />

suspects.<br />

Mr Christensen said there are 22<br />

cameras in Rolleston Reserve and<br />

several in Brookside Park.<br />

They have been disappearing at a<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> police don’t have a tally as<br />

to how many were stolen in the district during 2018, but in<br />

Christchurch 133 were whisked away by thieves.<br />

In 2017 and 2018, the Hilux was the second best selling new<br />

vehicle in the country.<br />

Older models are being stolen for parts.<br />

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

Theft of Toyota Hiluxes<br />

a ‘constant issue’ in the district – police<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

A POPULAR ute has caught the<br />

attention of thieves.<br />

Toyota Hiluxes are being<br />

stolen in large numbers across<br />

Canterbury.<br />

In Christchurch last year,<br />

133 were stolen and more were<br />

taken in <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

and North<br />

Canterbury.<br />

Rolleston<br />

Senior Sergeant<br />

Pete Stills<br />

said the theft<br />

of Hiluxes<br />

Pete Stills<br />

has been a<br />

“constant issue”<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

He recommends people secure<br />

their vehicles in a garage or fit<br />

them with an immobiliser or<br />

alarm.<br />

Acting Canterbury district<br />

commander Inspector<br />

Peter Cooper said due to its<br />

popularity, the ute is being<br />

“routinely targeted.”<br />

Older models may also be<br />

stolen for parts, he said.<br />

In 2017 and 2018, the<br />

Hilux was the second best<br />

selling new vehicle in New<br />

Zealand. The top selling vehicle<br />

was the Ford Ranger ute.<br />

Rangiora Sergeant Colin<br />

Stewart said there was a<br />

“significant increase” in Hilux<br />

thefts in the area about two<br />

months ago.<br />

“We go through stages where<br />

it appears they target Hiluxes.<br />

There is a market out there – it’s<br />

said.<br />

But the situation has improved<br />

since a police operation in<br />

MASEFIELD DRIVE WORK<br />

Work is expected to start on<br />

the footpath and cycleway<br />

along Masefield Drive,<br />

Rolleston, at the end of<br />

the month. The footpath<br />

and cycleway outside The<br />

Warehouse currently ends as<br />

the road narrows around a<br />

bend. The district council and<br />

the developers of Rolleston<br />

Square, where The Warehouse<br />

is sited, have been at odds over<br />

which should pay to fix the<br />

problem. District council assets<br />

manager Murray Washington<br />

said it does not have a specific<br />

start. It will include kerb and<br />

channel work, seal widening<br />

and edge line painting.<br />

Man seriously<br />

injured after<br />

tractor ignites<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

A MAN was taken to hospital<br />

with smoke inhalation after<br />

a tractor fire near Leeston on<br />

Sunday.<br />

Two fire trucks from Leeston<br />

and Dunsandel were called to a<br />

property on Allens Rd at about<br />

1.55pm.<br />

Firefighters saw a middle-aged<br />

man sitting on grass near a shed<br />

where the tractor was stored.<br />

He was taken to Christchurch<br />

Hospital in a serious condition, a<br />

St John Ambulance spokesman<br />

said.<br />

The shed was not<br />

damaged from the fire, Leeston<br />

chief fire officer Lloyd Clausen<br />

said.<br />

“It was contained in probably<br />

about 10 minutes,” he said.<br />

“The initial call was that there<br />

was a tractor inside a shed and<br />

we expected to see the shed fully<br />

engulfed in flames. But luckily it<br />

was just the tractor.”<br />

The cause of the fire was<br />

unknown at this stage, he<br />

said.<br />

The tractor had not been<br />

used for four days when the fire<br />

started.<br />

Library ready for more users<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

AMONG THE new<br />

developments in Tai Tapu is<br />

a historic building that needs<br />

people – the library.<br />

The library, which has a long<br />

history in the area, was opened<br />

at its Old Tai Tapu Rd site in<br />

1932.<br />

Head librarian Marian<br />

White is wanting more people<br />

to make the most of the library<br />

and says it could be used as<br />

a meeting place for different<br />

groups, such as a children’s<br />

play group or craft group.<br />

“We just thought we’d like<br />

to let people know that the<br />

building was available for<br />

other things beside being a<br />

library,” Mrs White said.<br />

The library, which is run by<br />

volunteers, has a small kitchen,<br />

a computer, WiFi, a large table<br />

which could be used for craft<br />

work and group sessions and<br />

a big lawn suitable for outdoor<br />

activities.<br />

Mrs White said the library<br />

has a “particularly good”<br />

children’s area and “the best”<br />

collection of non-fiction books<br />

about New Zealand in the<br />

district.<br />

She said it has “at least” 200<br />

books about New Zealand,<br />

from very historic ones to the<br />

latest reads.<br />

Popular genres in the library<br />

include modern and historic<br />

fiction along with children’s<br />

books, Mrs White said.<br />

She said the library has<br />

a lot of “local books and<br />

information” and librarians<br />

can assist people in finding<br />

out more about their family<br />

history.<br />

There is no charge for<br />

people or groups wanting<br />

to use library and it’s open<br />

from 2-4pm on Tuesdays and<br />

Thursdays and from 10amnoon<br />

on Saturdays. Mrs White<br />

said groups are welcome to<br />

use the library outside of its<br />

opening hours.<br />

•If you are interested in<br />

using the library or would<br />

like more information<br />

phone Mrs White on 329<br />

6021.<br />

HISTORY: Head<br />

librarian Marian White<br />

is encouraging the<br />

community to make the<br />

most of the Tai Tapu Library<br />

and its facilities.<br />

“I dream of a Pacific where this terrible disease has<br />

been eradicated and can no longer cause fear, stigma<br />

and discrimination in families and communities.”<br />

Lorena and three of her children were diagnosed with leprosy.<br />

Lorena says “Although our leprosy could be cured, we knew that<br />

sometimes there can be serious effects from the disease, like<br />

disabilities. I was terrified that more of my children would get sick.<br />

But then the Pacific Leprosy Foundation started its new programme<br />

which gives medicine to the rest of the family so that they are<br />

much less likely to get leprosy. It was wonderful to have that<br />

reassurance! Now I want the rest of the countries in the Pacific<br />

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

of money.”<br />

Cancer battler’s condition deteriorates<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

THE CONDITION of a Rolleston<br />

woman using alternative<br />

treatments to treat breast cancer<br />

has deteriorated dramatically.<br />

Nina Rodger’s husband Bruce<br />

told <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> yesterday she<br />

was taken to hospital on Sunday<br />

and was transferred to Nurse<br />

Maude hospice in Christchurch.<br />

Her situation was not good.<br />

Mrs Rodger, a mother of two,<br />

was diagnosed with breast cancer<br />

three years ago and her stage 4<br />

cancer had spread through her<br />

body.<br />

In early December, Mrs Rodger,<br />

36, was using alternative methods<br />

– including a change of diet,<br />

natural supplements and oils.<br />

“Things were slowly going<br />

downhill after Christmas,” he<br />

said.<br />

“Last Monday, she got checked<br />

into hospital because she had fluid<br />

in her lungs.”<br />

Doctors drained more than two<br />

litres of fluid from her lungs, Mr<br />

Rodger said.<br />

“It was in an area that was only<br />

meant to have 2mL [of fluid],” he<br />

said.<br />

After draining the fluid, doctors<br />

thought her condition would<br />

improve and came up with a<br />

chemotherapy plan.<br />

“She got sent home on Thursday<br />

and she immediately started<br />

going downhill. Lymphangitis<br />

just happened to take over her<br />

lung,” Mr Rodger said.<br />

Fluid in the body was filling<br />

up Mrs Rodger’s lungs and made<br />

breathing difficult.<br />

Her family has been at her<br />

bedside since being transferred to<br />

the hospice.<br />

“Nina is a fighter. The most<br />

important part is our faith. We’re<br />

not giving up on a miracle,” Mr<br />

Rodger said.<br />

“The kids took it hard. Having<br />

to be told this [Monday] morning,<br />

it was the hardest thing I have<br />

ever done in my life.”<br />

Family and friends had rallied<br />

FIGHTER:<br />

Nina Rodger<br />

with her<br />

daughter<br />

Valentina, 5.<br />

Mrs Rodger’s<br />

condition has<br />

deteriorated.<br />

around for “amazing” support, he<br />

said.<br />

The family had also received<br />

support from the public since the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> article about Mrs<br />

Rodger last month. “People are<br />

phenomenal. Just the messages<br />

of hope and donations were<br />

amazing,” Mr Rodger said.<br />

Local<br />

News<br />

Now<br />

Police want<br />

help to<br />

find taggers<br />

•From page 1<br />

District council property<br />

and commercial manager<br />

Douglas Marshall said the<br />

tagged toilets at Rolleston Reserve<br />

were installed in <strong>January</strong><br />

last year and cost $170,709.<br />

Mr Marshall said there has<br />

been an increase in the cost of<br />

graffiti clean-up in <strong>Selwyn</strong> this<br />

financial year compared to the<br />

last year.<br />

“In the period from June<br />

to November 2018, tagging<br />

removal has cost the district<br />

council about $14,000, compared<br />

to $6000 for 2017/18<br />

financial year,” he said.<br />

“In addition to the above<br />

costs, graffiti is also removed<br />

by local caretakers or via<br />

members of the local volunteer<br />

reserve committees,” he<br />

said.<br />

Sergeant Alex Pickover believes<br />

the tagging at the parks<br />

was done out of boredom.<br />

He wants anyone who<br />

recognises the tags or<br />

the people to phone the<br />

Rolleston Police Station<br />

on 363 7400 and quote the<br />

reference 190107/9848 for the<br />

Vehicle involved in head-on<br />

crash had baby on board<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

A BABY and three others<br />

escaped unharmed after<br />

a head-on crash at<br />

Waimakariri Gorge<br />

Rd on Saturday.<br />

The crash<br />

happened about<br />

10.20pm, Sheffield<br />

chief fire officer<br />

Neville Croy<br />

said.<br />

“They were pretty<br />

lucky,” he said. “Everything<br />

could have been a lot<br />

worse.”<br />

Neville Croy<br />

A silver Nissan Navara<br />

ute – carrying a man, a<br />

woman and a baby – and<br />

a gold Kia Sportage sport<br />

utility vehicle a<br />

female driver, were<br />

involved in the<br />

crash.<br />

The vehicles<br />

were travelling at<br />

about 40km/h near<br />

the Waimakariri<br />

Gorge bridge when<br />

they crashed, Mr<br />

Croy said.<br />

“It was enough to get the<br />

two vehicles damaged. The<br />

airbags had gone off in the<br />

Kia and the front wheels<br />

had gone off in the Nissan<br />

ute,” he said.<br />

Sergeant<br />

Paul Piper<br />

said one<br />

vehicle may<br />

have crossed<br />

the centreline<br />

near the<br />

bridge.<br />

No one<br />

was taken<br />

to hospital. “They were<br />

Paul Piper<br />

taken home by people they<br />

knew,” Mr Croy said.<br />

Further work<br />

for Sparks Rd<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

WORK HAS started on a new<br />

cycleway and infrastructure<br />

upgrades in Halswell and Hoon<br />

Hay.<br />

The city council project will<br />

take place on Sparks Rd, between<br />

Victors and Hendersons Rds.<br />

Work started last week.<br />

Construction of the water main<br />

will take several months, the city<br />

council said.<br />

Contractors from Fulton Hogan<br />

will first trench the intersection,<br />

place in the water pipes and then<br />

backfill the area.<br />

The new cycleway – part of the<br />

Quarryman’s Trail route – will<br />

also take several months to complete.<br />

Work on both the cycleway and<br />

water main is expected to finish<br />

by the end of July and work will<br />

be carried out between 7am and<br />

7pm every day.<br />

Lane shifts and shoulder<br />

closures will be in place while<br />

the work is being carried out and<br />

residents will have access to their<br />

properties at all times, the city<br />

council said.<br />

Last year, the city council<br />

completed work on the first<br />

stage of the Quarryman’s Trail<br />

between Moorhouse Ave and<br />

Victors Rd.<br />

PHEW, WE’RE out of the<br />

holiday season.<br />

We’ve had Christmas, New<br />

Year and last Sunday we had<br />

the Feast of the Epiphany, when<br />

Vittoria got a sock full of treats<br />

from the Christmas Witch/La<br />

Befana, it’s an Italian thing.<br />

We didn’t manage to burn the<br />

traditional effigy but we did get<br />

in a not-so-traditional feast of<br />

fish ’n’ chips.<br />

Now we’re back into the swing<br />

of first birthdays.<br />

It started on Saturday with the<br />

most important one (for me and<br />

Laura anyway) – Vittoria’s.<br />

No one tells you how many<br />

first birthday parties you end up<br />

going to after you have a kid, but<br />

it makes a whole heap of sense<br />

when you actually think about it.<br />

It’s seemed like we’ve had one<br />

at least every second weekend<br />

over the last couple of months.<br />

It’s great, they’re not quite<br />

completely for the kids yet, so<br />

they still have plenty to keep the<br />

adults entertained too.<br />

They’re the perfect blend of<br />

your favourite finger foods from<br />

childhood, kids party games and<br />

the opportunity for extremely<br />

responsible drinking.<br />

I kind of feel like we cheated<br />

with Vittoria’s since we hosted it<br />

at an early learning centre rather<br />

than at home, but we certainly<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

year, we prepared for her arrival<br />

via caesarean at 10.31am on<br />

Friday, <strong>January</strong> 12.<br />

I’m not ashamed to admit that<br />

in spite of my unflappably stiffupper-lipped<br />

support of Laura<br />

through the operation, I was a<br />

blubbering wreck as soon as I<br />

saw Vittoria.<br />

Just under a week later we<br />

brought her home. She was<br />

such a quiet wee thing, mostly<br />

sleeping.<br />

It was terrifying and exciting.<br />

I feel like I’m getting pretty<br />

good at parenting, which is good<br />

because she is no longer quiet or<br />

prone to sleeping.<br />

In fact over the last few days<br />

she decided she didn’t need three<br />

naps a day anymore, as she is a<br />

big girl now. She also worked on<br />

polishing her tantrum abilities<br />

and showed signs of getting<br />

picky with food (shudder).<br />

But she’s still just as keen on<br />

cuddles as she’s ever been, is<br />

laughing a lot and is always<br />

curious about the world around<br />

her.<br />

I hope those things don’t<br />

change for a long time to come.<br />

Sustainability key<br />

to organic farming<br />

There’s something for<br />

everyone in the realm of<br />

organic farming but as far<br />

as Bill Martin is concerned,<br />

it’s all about sustainability.<br />

The Training College<br />

Manager at Lincoln<br />

University’s Biological<br />

Husbandry Unit Organics<br />

Trust (BHU) is happy to see<br />

a surge in enthusiasm for<br />

organic food production<br />

as younger generations<br />

become more aware of<br />

environmental concerns.<br />

He says the growing<br />

popularity of organic<br />

production in recent years<br />

means that graduates are<br />

now taking what they have<br />

learned into a broader<br />

range of sectors.<br />

“It’s not just about<br />

growing, wholesaling<br />

and retailing food anymore. They’re<br />

going into schools and teaching primary<br />

and secondary schoolers about the<br />

importance of sustainable farming and<br />

gardening and really starting to embed the<br />

philosophy into the education system.”<br />

As far as conventional agricultural<br />

practices are concerned, he says farmers<br />

should be encouraged to optimise their<br />

production, rather than maximise it at the<br />

expense of the environment.<br />

“We need to change our agricultural<br />

paradigm and re-evaluate our priorities.”<br />

Mr Martin says those interested in a<br />

career in organics should enrol in the<br />

one-year Diploma in Agri-Food Production<br />

course, which is open to students either<br />

with or without university entrance.<br />

Introduced last year, it includes Tikanga<br />

and Mahinga Kai components and can<br />

lead to employment in organic primary<br />

production or other sectors related<br />

to organics, especially education and<br />

hospitality.<br />

“The course offers a good grounding<br />

in the principles of organic agriculture,<br />

teaching the philosophies and histories<br />

of organics and providing practical<br />

knowledge of how they are applied,” Mr<br />

Martin says.<br />

WILD: Feral cats have come under the spotlight after the<br />

Springfield Township Committee presented a deputation on<br />

them to the district council at its meeting last month. ​<br />

RAID: Cigarettes<br />

and cash were<br />

stolen in a<br />

break-in at<br />

Lincoln’s<br />

Robert Street<br />

Convenience<br />

Store.<br />

A reader responds to a<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> article on a<br />

call to eradicate feral cats<br />

Rob Anderson – I’m in favour<br />

of this but with some reservations.<br />

The whole project needs<br />

to be managed in such a way that<br />

the residents are given plenty of<br />

notice that a culling programme<br />

is planned. We need dates, times<br />

and locations of the eradication<br />

programme so that people who<br />

are cat owners living in proximity<br />

to bushland, reserves and<br />

associated areas planned for<br />

culls can take precautions like<br />

microchipping their pets and/or<br />

keeping them out of harm’s way.<br />

How about offering cat owners a<br />

rates rebate in return for having<br />

their pets microchipped – just a<br />

nominal amount of $10 or $20<br />

per cat would be an incentive and<br />

help the council get to grips with<br />

the real problem?<br />

Readers respond to a<br />

Lincoln dairy being ramraided<br />

in the early hours of<br />

New Year’s Eve<br />

Stefano De Filippi – And<br />

that’s what happens when the<br />

Government makes it more<br />

difficult for people who smoke.<br />

Going to get worse as the price<br />

goes up.<br />

Leonie Underdown – I<br />

hope that sanity prevails before<br />

someone is killed.<br />

Eninaj Ram – So this is their<br />

next option, poor dairy owners<br />

no matter what they do they will<br />

never be safe.<br />

Heidi Meinzer - Hope they<br />

get caught.<br />

Our People<br />

SELWYN TIMES<br />

Fire chief and rural postie has a<br />

Sheffield chief fire officer<br />

Neville Croy, 67, has been<br />

firefighting for 47 years.<br />

Emily O’Connell talks<br />

to him about why he<br />

became a firefighter, his<br />

most memorable call-out<br />

and his love of cars<br />

How long have you been a<br />

firefighter?<br />

Since 1971.<br />

Why did you join?<br />

Most probably to help people<br />

in need, because every time the<br />

siren goes someone is needing<br />

some help. And to help the<br />

community out.<br />

Is anyone in your family also<br />

a firefighter?<br />

Yes, my dad Wilfred was one<br />

of the foundation committee<br />

members when it was the<br />

Sheffield Volunteer Rural<br />

Firefighting Committee. That<br />

was from 1956 to 1964 he did<br />

that, before it became part of<br />

the fire service. Him and a<br />

chap with name of Pat Keating<br />

bought the local service station,<br />

they had this local garage, the<br />

Sheffield Garage. There was a<br />

new garage built in about 1951 I<br />

think and when they got the fire<br />

engine in 1956, it was stored in<br />

what used to be the old garage.<br />

They bought it from the New<br />

Brighton Fire Brigade and it was<br />

a 1922 Leyland and that’s now<br />

in Ferrymead Heritage Park. My<br />

younger brother David was also<br />

a firefighter but he moved over<br />

to Australia. He was in it for six<br />

years.<br />

Do you remember what your<br />

first call-out was?<br />

The first one of any recognition<br />

was the Springfield Hotel.<br />

What happened there?<br />

It just caught fire, where they<br />

used to store the kegs of beer. We<br />

were sitting on the back of an old<br />

Ford V8 and I had just got home<br />

from town so it was about 2am<br />

or 3am and it was a freezing cold<br />

winter’s morning and we had<br />

to sit on the back all the way to<br />

Springfield.<br />

How did you feel going to that<br />

call-out?<br />

Nervous because you don’t<br />

know what you’re going to and<br />

that. I was young and fearless,<br />

and you didn’t seem to think<br />

about it, you just did it.<br />

How and when did you come<br />

to being the chief firefighter?<br />

I think I’ve been a fire chief<br />

for 36 or 37 years now . . . you<br />

went from fireman, then you<br />

were secretary, then you were<br />

treasurer, then you were station<br />

officer, then senior station officer,<br />

you went through the ranks.<br />

What are your<br />

responsibilities as chief?<br />

As chief, the main one these<br />

days is fireman health and safety<br />

and well-being. And just to<br />

make sure the brigade is running<br />

alright, and your finances are<br />

kept right, it’s just like running a<br />

business.<br />

What has been your most<br />

memorable call-out and why?<br />

Oh there have been so many.<br />

I was working up at Springfield<br />

at the time, and we had a<br />

motor vehicle accident call to<br />

Windwhistle which is miles away<br />

and it was a load of Japanese<br />

people and the person who<br />

passed away was the only one<br />

who could speak English. That<br />

was my first MVA. I was in the<br />

Sheffield brigade but Springfield<br />

got called out and when I was<br />

working up in the garage there, I<br />

would go with them.<br />

What do you enjoy about<br />

firefighting?<br />

The camaraderie and being<br />

with <strong>16</strong> guys who you can totally<br />

trust in and go into a lot of<br />

situations where most people<br />

would walk away from, knowing<br />

that those guys would stick<br />

right behind you . . . and you’re<br />

helping people out.<br />

What is the hardest part<br />

about being a firefighter?<br />

The hardest part would be<br />

commitment to the fire service<br />

to do your job properly and<br />

yet still have a home life. The<br />

hours that sometimes are<br />

expected of you and that you do,<br />

your children and partner can<br />

go to lots of things or do things,<br />

that you should be part of and<br />

can’t because you’re out doing<br />

something else. Which is<br />

a totally voluntary thing, it’s<br />

your call to do that but that’s<br />

the hardest thing I suppose as<br />

well as telling someone their<br />

loved one has been hurt, things<br />

like that, that’s not the nice side<br />

of it.<br />

Were you helping out during<br />

the Port Hills fire and/or<br />

earthquakes?<br />

Yes we had crews going to the<br />

earthquake and the Port Hills<br />

fire.<br />

How were those experiences?<br />

I suppose it was just the same,<br />

a fire is a fire, it was hilly and<br />

we have hills out here with<br />

knowledge of where to go was<br />

a big thing. Country guys in<br />

that town area, it takes a bit to<br />

get your bearings. It went well.<br />

I was pleased with our brigade’s<br />

performance anyway.<br />

How do you process the<br />

tragedy you experience as a<br />

firefighter?<br />

The fire service has got a really<br />

good support system with Fire<br />

and Emergency New Zealand<br />

now. It’s improved ten-fold over<br />

the years. Normally, we sit down<br />

the guys at the station and we<br />

can have a yarn. For a while I<br />

was a solo dad and the support<br />

system wasn’t as efficient as it is<br />

now. You used to just put it out<br />

of your mind and just think of<br />

the next one. But I’ve got a really<br />

good partner now, Heather, and<br />

so if I have to say something,<br />

she’s there and it stays there, it<br />

stays in-house . . . you don’t get<br />

hardened to it, but unfortunately<br />

it’s a part of life.<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

SMALL GRASS FIRE<br />

It took Rolleston and Burnham<br />

firefighters a few minutes to<br />

extinguish a small grass fire<br />

in Rolleston at about 8pm on<br />

Thursday. Senior station officer<br />

Graham Petersen suspects the<br />

blaze, on the corner of Two<br />

Chain and Aylesbury Rds, was<br />

caused by a bird striking a<br />

power line. He said the fire did<br />

not cause any damage.<br />

RATA FOUNDATION GRANT<br />

The Mt Cheeseman Ski Club<br />

has received a $5000 grant from<br />

the Rata Foundation. The grant<br />

There were 19 gaming venues<br />

which contributed to the grants,<br />

including the Prebbleton Tavern<br />

David Sands’ cellphone number<br />

Boot Camp with Kaz<br />

wins NZ Fitness Award!<br />

The award-winning 10-week Boot<br />

Camp challenge developed and<br />

run by Karen (Kaz) Hulston offers<br />

people the opportunity to take part<br />

in fun and challenging group fitness<br />

sessions in West Melton with other<br />

participants on the programme<br />

and also includes home training<br />

and weekly 30-minute online video<br />

sessions.<br />

“The programme runs twice on<br />

Mondays, morning or evening, and<br />

is designed to keep you highly<br />

accountable and easily adapts to fit<br />

busy lifestyles,” Kaz says.<br />

Kaz’s boot camp programme recently<br />

received the accolade of being the<br />

overall winner of the Programme<br />

Excellence category in the New<br />

Zealand Fitness Awards, held in<br />

Auckland last November. “I was<br />

DO YOU<br />

WANT TO<br />

ACHIEVE<br />

YOUR<br />

NEW YEAR<br />

GOALS?<br />

surprised, happy and emotional when<br />

I was announced as the winner.”<br />

As a physical trainer in the health<br />

and fitness industry for over 20<br />

years, with 17 of those years in the<br />

Army, Kaz has worked with people<br />

of all fitness levels, life experiences<br />

and challenges. “Whether I’ve<br />

been training Army enlistees, elite<br />

sportspeople and teams, or males<br />

and females of all ages and stages of<br />

life, one thing has remained the same<br />

- my determination to help them<br />

become physically the best versions<br />

of themselves.”<br />

When she left the Army, Kaz’s health<br />

and fitness suffered. “Even with all<br />

my knowledge and experience I still<br />

managed to fall into an unhealthy<br />

eating trap, so I know how easy it is<br />

to let bad habits creep in.”<br />

28 Jan to 7 Apr 19<br />

Breaking free<br />

from those<br />

debilitating<br />

habits defines<br />

who Kaz is<br />

as a trainer<br />

today. “If<br />

I hadn’t hit<br />

rock bottom, I<br />

would just be like<br />

any other hardass<br />

boot camp<br />

trainer.”<br />

She adds, “My<br />

own experiences<br />

have given me a<br />

deep understanding<br />

of what it is like to be<br />

unhealthy, and it ignited a strong<br />

desire in me to help others positively<br />

change their lives.”<br />

Positive impact<br />

from youth council<br />

Former<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Youth<br />

Council<br />

chairwoman<br />

Paige<br />

Sullivan reflects<br />

on some of its<br />

achievements last<br />

year<br />

THE SELWYN Youth<br />

Council finished the year<br />

in high spirits with the<br />

success of Boost Out, the<br />

youth council’s final Boost<br />

2018 event. It included<br />

a skate jam, live mural<br />

paintings, food trucks,<br />

and live youth bands.<br />

There is the possibility of<br />

the <strong>2019</strong>/20 youth council<br />

to continue this now<br />

established set of events.<br />

The youth council is<br />

appreciative of the support<br />

the community has shown<br />

us through these events,<br />

specifically through a large<br />

turnout at Boost Spook, a<br />

haunted house maze.<br />

The <strong>2019</strong>/20 youth council<br />

has now been selected. I<br />

am excited to see what this<br />

group will bring to the table,<br />

with a large diversity of<br />

ages and experiences that<br />

will represent the youth<br />

of <strong>Selwyn</strong> for the next two<br />

years.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Link has proven<br />

to be successful in pushing<br />

for change in our public<br />

transport. There are currently<br />

two trials proposed<br />

by Metro and Environment<br />

Canterbury – Leeston<br />

to Christchurch and<br />

Darfield to Christchurch.<br />

Surveys were collected via<br />

the Metro website and also<br />

through letterbox drops<br />

in the relating townships.<br />

Survey responses closed<br />

last month.<br />

The youth council also<br />

recently distributed a<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Youth Residents<br />

Survey. The results of these<br />

have been collected, and<br />

have shown that:<br />

•97 per cent of young<br />

people feel safe, secure and<br />

comfortable in their community<br />

•93 per cent of young<br />

people feel that they can be<br />

themselves in <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

•94 per cent of young<br />

people believe that council<br />

facilities are good<br />

There were also lots<br />

of new ideas and also<br />

concerns presented<br />

through the survey<br />

responses, which gives the<br />

<strong>2019</strong>/20 youth council a<br />

solid foundation to build<br />

from. This will help them<br />

to ensure they are meeting<br />

the wants and needs of<br />

young people living in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

SELWYN TIMES<br />

restore choked creek<br />

ABOUT 70 Leeston<br />

Consolidated School pupils were<br />

put to work last month helping<br />

to restore <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s Snake Creek.<br />

The creek, a tributary of<br />

the Silverstream River, is an<br />

important trout spawning<br />

stream and home to native<br />

species, such as the endangered<br />

long fin eel.<br />

The stream becomes choked<br />

every year with water weeds<br />

which means it has to be cleared<br />

out with a digger. The weeds also<br />

lead to the build up of sediment<br />

on the streambed which is not<br />

good for stream life.<br />

This was the problem the<br />

Leeston pupils were tasked with<br />

solving.<br />

To do this they visited the<br />

site and made a plan to create<br />

shade that would suppress the<br />

weeds.<br />

The plan involved reshaping<br />

the banks which were too steep<br />

to plant on, designing a planting<br />

plan and also the addition of<br />

features in the stream, such as<br />

boulders and wood for habitat.<br />

Fulton Hogan donated the<br />

earthmoving equipment and<br />

operators, and, armed with the<br />

pupils’ plan, reshaped the bank<br />

as they had designed it.<br />

Leeston pupils did the planting<br />

and positioned the boulders.<br />

manager Don Chittock said<br />

it was happy to be part of a<br />

restoration project that involved<br />

the school and would lead to<br />

improvements downstream in<br />

the <strong>Selwyn</strong>/Waikirirki River.<br />

The pupils were guided<br />

by Matt Stanford from<br />

Enviroschools, who said the<br />

project was an opportunity to<br />

connect young people to a local<br />

waterway so they can learn<br />

about its issues and how to care<br />

for it. “What was particularly<br />

great about this project was the<br />

students were involved right<br />

from the beginning with all the<br />

planning and design and then<br />

they got to see it to fruition,” he<br />

said.<br />

Newest generation<br />

well catered for<br />

Lincoln University Childcare and Preschool<br />

has now been around for 30 years and former<br />

pupils could be bringing their own children<br />

to experience what they had before.<br />

It was opened in 1988 to provide education<br />

and care for the children of families of the<br />

staff and students of Lincoln University,<br />

local research organisations and the Lincoln<br />

community.<br />

The centre has a separate under-two area<br />

that allows the children to play and learn<br />

in a safe and developmentally appropriate<br />

environment.<br />

New under-twos can now also get their first<br />

month free.<br />

All children have a primary caregiver who<br />

is responsible for ensuring that children’s<br />

individual needs are being met, for example<br />

in feeding, settling in and feeling secure in the<br />

centre. Having a primary caregiver enables<br />

infants and toddlers to build a sense of trust<br />

with the people who care for them.<br />

The centre can take up to 12<br />

children on the under-two side<br />

to ensure providing care and<br />

education of the highest quality.<br />

The teachers all have extensive<br />

training and experience in<br />

working with children of this age<br />

group.<br />

Backyard Critters<br />

When the caterpillar<br />

becomes a moth<br />

A RECENT find in my<br />

garden was the common<br />

bag moth liothula<br />

omnivora.<br />

The caterpillar of this<br />

species lives within a<br />

tapered silk bag that it<br />

constructs a few days after<br />

hatching.<br />

The larvae continue to<br />

enlarge the bag as they<br />

grow in size, with the bags<br />

reaching 50mm in length.<br />

The silk bags are<br />

camouflaged with small<br />

twigs, bark and leaf<br />

fragments attached to the<br />

external surface.<br />

Bags containing females<br />

have the fragments<br />

placed near the sharp end<br />

only, whereas the more<br />

industrious male adorns its<br />

entire bag with fragments.<br />

The larvae are nocturnal<br />

and poke their heads<br />

and legs out of the wide<br />

end of the bag to feed on<br />

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology<br />

(insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces<br />

a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His<br />

column aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the<br />

variety of living things around us. Check out the full list of<br />

INSECT: The caterpillar<br />

of the Bag moth<br />

Liothula omnivora live<br />

within a tapered silk bag<br />

that it constructs a few<br />

days after hatching.<br />

vegetation and move along<br />

the branch.<br />

If disturbed, larvae<br />

will retreat into the bag.<br />

During the day, the bag is<br />

attached to a branch with<br />

very strong silk.<br />

Pupation occurs during<br />

winter when the bag is<br />

securely tied to vegetation.<br />

Only the adult males form<br />

wings and fly, while the<br />

females remain in their<br />

bags and resemble a more<br />

larval, rather than adult,<br />

form.<br />

Male moths mate with<br />

females by extending<br />

their telescopic abdomen<br />

through the narrow end of<br />

the bag.<br />

The female lays the eggs<br />

within the bag and dies<br />

soon after.<br />

When larvae hatch, they<br />

emerge from the narrow<br />

end of the bag, sometimes<br />

on silk to disperse in the<br />

wind.<br />

Several parasitic flies and<br />

wasps are known to attack<br />

the bag moth larvae and<br />

pupae.<br />

Big T20 wins for Southbrook<br />

and Leeston-Southbridge<br />

SOLID: Ben Donkers helped<br />

Leeston-Southbridge chase<br />

down Weedons’ paltry total of<br />

96 on Saturday.<br />

THE HOLIDAYS did nothing<br />

to stem the dominance of<br />

Southbrook and Leeston-<br />

Southbridge, which both notched<br />

their first country cricket wins of<br />

the year on Saturday.<br />

In a weather-affected<br />

‘nearest neighbour’ round of<br />

the CRV Ambreed country<br />

premier twenty20 competition,<br />

the Cheviot v Kaiapoi and<br />

Oxford-Rangiora v Darfield<br />

fixtures were rained off.<br />

A bizarre low-scoring grind<br />

was played out at Southbrook<br />

Park. On what appeared to be a<br />

pitch devoid of demons, the home<br />

side was rolled by the visiting<br />

Sefton for a paltry 63 runs.<br />

But any thoughts of an easy<br />

Sefton victory were quickly<br />

erased with a stunned Seals squad<br />

reduced to 26/9.<br />

After dropping a catch on the<br />

first ball of the innings, the tight<br />

Southbrook fielding outfit then<br />

caught anything struck above the<br />

ground.<br />

Rising young paceman Anthony<br />

Tavendale was the chief destroyer,<br />

returning the impressive<br />

figures of 4-6 off four overs.<br />

Sefton spluttered through to<br />

43/9 in their 20 overs, recording<br />

a frustrating 20-run defeat.<br />

Weedons won the toss and<br />

elected to bat against competition<br />

leaders Leeston-Southbridge.<br />

The combined side soon had<br />

them under pressure, removing<br />

Weedons stalwart Shanan Dunnett<br />

cheaply.<br />

Fringe Canterbury Country<br />

representative James Richards<br />

made a run-a-ball 28, but a great<br />

over from young off-spinner Will<br />

McFarlane changed the game.<br />

He removed Richards and Sam<br />

Wilson in the same over.<br />

All of the Leeston-Southbridge<br />

bowlers performed well, supported<br />

by some tidy fielding. They<br />

restricted Weedons to just 96/7 in<br />

their 20 overs.<br />

In reply, Leeston-Southbridge<br />

coasted to victory, thanks to<br />

some classy batting from Rupert<br />

Young, Ben Chamberlain and<br />

Ben Donkers. All three were back<br />

in form after the festive break.<br />

Leeston-Southbridge chased<br />

the total down in 15 overs. They<br />

only lost Young, who was run out<br />

attempting a risky single.<br />

Scholarship helps Ella<br />

achieve goals in the pool<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

A ROLLESTON teenager<br />

has been awarded one of the<br />

first ever ISPS Handa talent<br />

scholarships for her efforts in<br />

the pool.<br />

Ella Benn, 15, was one of<br />

two people to receive the<br />

scholarship, which is for<br />

budding young disabled athletes<br />

who want to compete at an<br />

international level.<br />

The Rolleston College student<br />

had her leg amputated in 2014<br />

after being diagnosed with bone<br />

cancer.<br />

Her cancer has relapsed<br />

twice since and she has had to<br />

undergo further treatment.<br />

Ella, who is currently<br />

cancer-free, says she was “really<br />

shocked” to be awarded the<br />

scholarship.<br />

“I’m really, really happy about<br />

it and I’m proud of myself and<br />

what I’ve achieved to be able to<br />

get that,” she said.<br />

The scholarship will help<br />

Ella get to the Paralympics<br />

New Zealand para-swimming<br />

Australian development tour<br />

next month, and also to the<br />

Victorian championships in<br />

Melbourne where she hopes to<br />

gain international classification.<br />

Ella, who has been swimming<br />

competitively for four years,<br />

trains at the Canterbury Swim<br />

School in Yaldhurst five days<br />

a week, as well as going to<br />

the gym twice a week. Her<br />

“ultimate” goal is to win a medal<br />

at the Paralympics, but right<br />

now she is focused on doing well<br />

at competitions and trying to<br />

get to the next Commonwealth<br />

Games.<br />

Ella said she looks up to<br />

former Lincoln High School<br />

student and top Paralympic<br />

swimmer Sophie Pascoe, who<br />

she has known for a couple of<br />

years and occasionally helps to<br />

coach her.<br />

“Just because of the level she’s<br />

at and what she’s done to get to<br />

where she is and how much hard<br />

work and dedication she puts<br />

into everything,” she said.

Motoring<br />

• By Ross Kiddie<br />

AS AGE HAS caught up with me,<br />

it must be said understanding<br />

the electronics and finer points<br />

of any new car is becoming more<br />

and more challenging.<br />

That being the case, I find<br />

it quite a conquest when I can<br />

climb in and instantly set the air<br />

conditioning to my preferred settings,<br />

find the Sound FM radio<br />

station and zero the trip meter.<br />

That doesn’t always happen<br />

quickly, in some cars it takes time<br />

to work through the complexities<br />

of the operating systems. Not so in<br />

the Skoda Octavia Scout, I jumped<br />

in and had those three prerequisites<br />

mastered in less than a minute,<br />

which sent a clear message that<br />

the car is intuitive and user-friendly<br />

to operate, and I like that.<br />

That’s not the only reason I<br />

warmed to the Octavia Scout, it<br />

is the quintessential mid-size station<br />

wagon. I once had a Mazda<br />

323 wagon as a work car, and I<br />

found it one of the most useful<br />

forms of transport I could have<br />

on a daily basis.<br />

Sadly, only a few manufacturers<br />

still produce the traditional wagon<br />

and fewer still that make smallish<br />

wagons. That aside, the load space<br />

in the Scout is amazing. It measures<br />

610-litres to 1740-litres with<br />

the rear seats folded flat.<br />

In real terms I can report it<br />

came in very handy during the<br />

time my daughter was in the process<br />

of moving abode. I used the<br />

Scout to transport many of her<br />

belongings and found it incredibly<br />

practical, a lot of the latter<br />

due to the small recess on the<br />

boot floor which creates just that<br />

bit extra load space.<br />

The Scout lands here with three<br />

engine options; well, the 2-litre<br />

diesel model has the same engine<br />

but with different power outputs<br />

– 110kW or 135kW – the other<br />

engine is a 1.8-litre petrol unit.<br />

The evaluation car was the<br />

lower powered diesel but, while<br />

I say that, it’s my belief it is perfectly<br />

adequate for the role, I can’t<br />

imagine that any more power is<br />

necessary. In true turbocharged<br />

diesel fashion, the 1968cc engine<br />

develops a hearty 340Nm available<br />

all of the way from 1750rpm<br />

to 3000rpm.<br />

As a consequence, the Scout<br />

in this form still develops strong<br />

performance. Acceleration is crisp,<br />

and throttle response is instant,<br />

there’s no sign of turbo lag and<br />

with it coupled to a seven-speed<br />

direct shift transmission there is<br />

direct drive and quick shifts.<br />

That’s one of the advantages<br />

of direct shift transmission, it<br />

doesn’t eat away at those precious<br />

power figures.<br />

Against the clock the Scout will<br />

reach 100km/h from a standstill<br />

in 9.3sec, and will make a<br />

highway lunge to 120km/h from<br />

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

of the healthy mid-range performance<br />

of the modern diesel and<br />

it is a hugely rewarding feeling.<br />

As you would expect, the Scout<br />

also has amazing fuel economy.<br />

The manufacturers claim a 5.2-<br />

litre per 100km (54mpg) combined<br />

cycle rating. That sits well<br />

with the 6.8l/100km (41mpg)<br />

showing on the test car’s trip<br />

computer, along with a frugal<br />

4l/100km (70mpg) instantaneous<br />

readout at 100km/h, the engine<br />

just loping over at 1400rpm.<br />

These figures are no surprise,<br />

I’ve driven with this engine many<br />

times before in other Skoda and<br />

Volkswagen product, it is a beauty,<br />

with quiet operating manners<br />

and efficiency as good as it gets.<br />

I took the test car on one of my<br />

normal routes through the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

District – Dunsandel to Hororata<br />

– and enjoyed its quiet operating<br />

manner and the comfortable way it<br />

treats its occupants over a distance.<br />

The Scout is no racer, nor is it<br />

intended to be; it is honest everyday<br />

transport. I pushed it hard<br />

into a couple of quick corners<br />

and it responds with accuracy<br />

through the front end and strong<br />

Skoda Octavia Scout makes driving easy<br />

SKODA SCOUT: Simple to understand.<br />

• Price – Skoda Octavia<br />

Scout, $48,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4687mm; width, 1814mm;<br />

height, 1531mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

1968cc, 110kW, 340Nm,<br />

seven-speed automatic.<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 9.3sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 5.2l/100km<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

steering feel. Providing the<br />

grip are high quality Michelin<br />

Primacy tyres (225/50 x 17in),<br />

and they have a solid footprint<br />

with the road surface.<br />

Skoda has sprung the Octavia<br />

Scout with softish settings, but<br />

because there is little weight in the<br />

vehicle and with a low centre of<br />

gravity – the Scout is only 1.5m<br />

tall – there is little handling tradeoff,<br />

comfort and ability has been a<br />

high manufacturing criteria.<br />

Yet there is another surprise<br />

with the Scout, it has fourwheel-drive.<br />

With just 171mm<br />

of ground clearance, it can’t be<br />

considered an off-road vehicle,<br />

however, I took the test car onto a<br />

cross-country track to take photos<br />

and was impressed with its<br />

suspension control and in-cabin<br />

comfort over some gnarly bumps<br />

and ruts. I can see it as a good<br />

alternative to the mainstream cars<br />

which tackle the skifield access<br />

roads over winter.<br />

Not only did I put the Scout to<br />

good use during the time it was in<br />

my care, but it also reinforced my<br />

desire for the 2-litre diesel engine.<br />

Sadly, not enough Kiwi buyers<br />

warm to diesel, and I still can’t<br />

quite figure that out. The Scout<br />

in this form would certainly<br />

be a car I would consider as a<br />

functional form of daily transport<br />

and at $48,990 how could you go<br />

wrong?<br />

Tips for easing<br />

into school life<br />

Those first days at school as a new entrant can be an anxious time for<br />

parents, caregivers and your child. There are some simple steps that can<br />

help to ease those first day worries and ensure a smooth transition for<br />

everyone.<br />

Never underestimate the very simple idea of talking with your child –<br />

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

name or what they will do. Go shopping together to buy their new lunch<br />

box or back pack and put them aside until their first<br />

day arrives.<br />

Establish a sleep schedule before school starts,<br />

especially if they have had a long holiday or break<br />

from pre-school. The ideal is nine to 10 hours every<br />

night, starting at least a week before school starts so<br />

that you both adjust to the routine.<br />

Plan ahead for ways to make things easier such<br />

as laying out their clothes the night before or prepreparing<br />

week night meals so there is less stress on<br />

everyone and a tired child gets fed quickly if needed.<br />

Think about whether to introduce healthy snacks<br />

and lunches before school starts, particularly if your<br />

child is a fussy eater. Try some new vegetable or fruit<br />

with a dip that can be put in a container in their lunch<br />

box or cut sandwiches in fun shapes.<br />

While it is tempting for your child to be involved in lots<br />

of activities, children need to have downtime, particularly<br />

when they are starting school and dealing with a lot of things<br />

that are new to them. Keep the schedule light until everyone is<br />

settled in to their new routine.<br />

Getting to know the school is also a great idea by playing there during<br />

the weekends or holidays or catching up with friends who will also be<br />

starting school at the same time.<br />

Keep an eye out if you live in Lincoln for all the learners starting at<br />

the new Ararira Springs Primary. They, too, no matter whether they<br />

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

school and new routines.<br />

The Ararira Springs Primary team at the beach<br />

Ararira Springs opens doors<br />

Lincoln south children will be looking<br />

forward to not only a new school year but<br />

a new school as the doors open for the first<br />

time at Ararira<br />

Springs Primary.<br />

New families will<br />

be welcomed to<br />

the school with a<br />

mihi whakatau/<br />

welcome on<br />

Monday 4 February<br />

<strong>2019</strong> featuring<br />

a ceremony to<br />

return the sod dug<br />

up when building<br />

first started, tree<br />

planting, walk through the buildings and<br />

morning tea. Lessons will begin the following<br />

day.<br />

Catering to learners from new entrants to<br />

Year 8, Ararira Springs Primary is located<br />

at 18 Russ Drive in Lincoln South and was<br />

established to cater for anticipated growth in<br />

the area and an eventual role of 750.<br />

Core values at the new school are caring,<br />

curious and capable, says Principal Claire<br />

Howison.<br />

“We want to encourage kind children who<br />

care about each other, build on their natural<br />

Playing netball at the new school<br />

The administration block<br />

curiosity about the world<br />

around them and for them<br />

to also show leadership and<br />

responsibility for their own<br />

actions,” she says.<br />

“The mantra of “it starts with<br />

me” reflects the school’s belief that all<br />

learners need to be active and know they<br />

have a part to play in their own learning.”<br />

As Lincoln is an Envirotown, Ararira Springs<br />

Primary is also an Enviroschool which aims<br />

to foster a generation that thinks and acts<br />

sustainably.<br />

As <strong>2019</strong> gets underway, the Ararira Springs<br />

Primary team is looking forward to opening<br />

its doors of after many months of hard<br />

work. The office opens with limited hours<br />

on Monday 21 <strong>January</strong> <strong>2019</strong> and more<br />

BACK TO SCHOOL 2018<br />

9,500 learners on<br />

the move again!<br />

Pack a yummy,<br />

healthy lunchbox<br />

From Monday 28 <strong>January</strong>, over 9,500<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> children will be travelling to school,<br />

that’s nearly 20% of our population on the<br />

move!<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> School Road Safety Co-ordinator<br />

Stephanie Hautler is reminding everyone to<br />

keep their eyes peeled for our young people<br />

heading back to school by bus, bike, car,<br />

scooter and on foot.<br />

With summer finally arriving it’s a great<br />

opportunity to get active with your child.<br />

Even if you are pushed for time, park a<br />

block back from school so that your child<br />

can scoot or walk. It is good for them both<br />

physically and mentally, develops their<br />

road safety skills and helps with overall<br />

congestion at the school gate.<br />

“Road safety awareness is a pretty<br />

important life skill and starts developing<br />

when you are young. Take every<br />

opportunity to educate children on how to<br />

cross a road and watch for cars coming out<br />

of sneaky driveways” says Mrs Hautler.<br />

“The safety of all children is paramount,”<br />

says Senior Sergeant Pete Stills of the New<br />

Zealand Police. “Police will be patrolling<br />

outside schools and pre-schools so as to<br />

reduce the risk posed by speeding vehicles,<br />

illegal parking and dangerous driving<br />

manoeuvres whilst everyone gets used to<br />

children being back at school.”<br />

Road safety resources for parents<br />

and children are available from <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

District Council by emailing stephanie.<br />

hautler@selwyn.govt.nz or phoning<br />

347 2705.<br />

School travel safety tips:<br />

• Be bright be seen, ask your school<br />

for a safety vest.<br />

• Tackle the routes together<br />

talking about sneaky driveways<br />

and blind corners.<br />

• Get out and active together to<br />

reduce the chaos at the school gate.<br />

• Wear your helmets, this goes for<br />

caregivers too, young people are<br />

watching you<br />

School’s back<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

Get the new school year off to the right<br />

start with some healthy lunchbox ideas.<br />

And better still get the kids involved.<br />

It will help them learn to make healthy<br />

choices, there will be less food wastage and,<br />

hopefully, they will come home with empty<br />

lunchboxes, too!<br />

Certain foods boost energy and learning<br />

while others impede the thinking process.<br />

West Rolleston<br />

Primary - School<br />

Welcome to <strong>2019</strong><br />

Term One<br />

commences on<br />

Tuesday 29th<br />

<strong>January</strong> <strong>2019</strong><br />

Please visit our website<br />

www.westrolleston.school.nz<br />

for more information<br />

Healthy foods are brain foods as they help<br />

to increase a child’s attention span and<br />

ability to remember.<br />

In contrast, many processed snack foods<br />

are high in carbohydrates and sugar. These<br />

drain the brain and body, having a negative<br />

effect on mental capacity and energy levels<br />

by tiring a person. The same applies to<br />

fatty foods. Even energy drinks can have<br />

a negative effect on your child’s ability to<br />

focus.<br />

Filling lunchboxes with<br />

healthy snacks is easy<br />

Seedy grainy wafers or breads, nuts, fruits<br />

and vegetables are the optimum. Carrot<br />

sticks, cheese, cucumber, celery, snap<br />

peas, boiled eggs and crunchy lettuce cups<br />

filled with cream cheese or peanut butter<br />

are perfect. For a sweet treat, pop in some<br />

blueberries, grapes, strawberries, apple,<br />

banana, segments of orange, mandarins<br />

and dried raisins. They will all be popular.<br />

When thinking beverages, water is the best<br />

while any juices should be natural with no<br />

added sugar or preservatives, remembering<br />

to limit the amount of natural sugars too.<br />

A healthy school lunchbox will ensure<br />

there is plenty of brain food to assist<br />

concentration, learning and overall positive<br />

behaviour.<br />

Being the best of you, as you at Lemonwood Grove<br />

Lemonwood Grove is a new school situated in Rolleston’s popular Faringdon<br />

subdivision.<br />

With a vision of ‘The best of you, as you’, learners experience a personalised<br />

education based on their needs, interests and passions.<br />

As part of the Ministry of Education’s Innovation Programme, the school’s<br />

curriculum is based on sound educational research around the conditions<br />

learners need to be successful in the 21st century.<br />

Foundation Principal Sean Bailey is justifiably proud of his school, backed<br />

up by a very positive report from the Education Review Office. He also has<br />

the support of his team of passionate educators, support staff and board<br />

members who realise how important it is to collaborate and work together to<br />

achieve desired outcomes.<br />

Lemonwood Grove School will start the <strong>2019</strong> year with around 250 learners<br />

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

capacity of 750.<br />

New learners<br />

come from<br />

throughout<br />

Canterbury,<br />

New Zealand<br />

and overseas<br />

contributing to the school’s richness and diversity.<br />

One of the special features of Lemonwood Grove is that it shares its site with<br />

special education school Waitaha.<br />

“This is the first time the Ministry of Education has ever built two schools<br />

together and although we have separate principals and boards, there are many<br />

opportunities for us to collaborate together for the benefit of all our learners<br />

as part of an inclusive education,” says Sean.<br />

Lemonwood Grove School opens for Term 1 on Wednesday 30 <strong>January</strong> <strong>2019</strong><br />

and the school office will be open from Wednesday 23 <strong>January</strong> <strong>2019</strong> for any<br />

enquiries. More information is available at www.lemonwoodgrove.school.nz.<br />

Lincoln High School students are<br />

benefitting from new courses reflecting the<br />

school’s focus on innovative ways to learn.<br />

Print Media Production and English in<br />

the Outdoors are just two of the courses<br />

introduced last year offering students<br />

options to learn new skills and engage in a<br />

different way of learning.<br />

The production of a 144 page magazine<br />

called Ensemble filled with creative<br />

articles about fashion, travel, food and<br />

entertainment targeted at teenagers is the<br />

end result of a year of hard work by 13 Year<br />

13 students in the course.<br />

Led by student Libby Duncan, Ensemble<br />

is a compilation of articles, reviews<br />

and recipes written by the students and<br />

featuring their own artwork.<br />

“Each student played to their own<br />

strengths and wrote about what they<br />

were passionate about. The end result is<br />

a massive achievement and testament to<br />

their hard work,” says teacher Alisha Wyke.<br />

Learning a conventional subject in a<br />

different way is behind the introduction<br />

of last year’s new English in the Outdoors<br />

course for Year 11 students.<br />

Teacher Kerri Loughhead says the course<br />

was introduced to engage students who<br />

may not do as well in traditional English<br />

classes and features outdoor-themed<br />

books, movies and plays alongside a wide<br />

range of activities such as overnight tramps<br />

incorporating creative writing, visits to the<br />

local reserve and orienteering.<br />

Kerri and her fellow teachers have<br />

enjoyed being able to bring their own love<br />

of outdoors to the students and the course’s<br />

success has led to the addition of a Year 12<br />

course this year.<br />

The office will be open 1st February <strong>2019</strong><br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

Tarragon is a handy, hardy herb<br />

• By Henri Ham<br />

A KEEN vege gardener will often<br />

try to grow a few new veges each<br />

year.<br />

And I believe the same<br />

should apply to herbs. The<br />

classics of parsley, chives and<br />

basil will always have a place in<br />

gardeners’ kitchens. But how<br />

about testing your green-fingers<br />

out on some russian tarragon this<br />

summer?<br />

Russian tarragon is a hardy<br />

perennial herb. Its taste can<br />

be likened to a cross between<br />

parsley and chervil (french<br />

parsley).<br />

It’s quite a lanky plant and<br />

can grow up to 80cm tall. It has<br />

slender stems, covered in skinny<br />

green leaves.<br />

Often confused with french<br />

tarragon, the Russian variety is<br />

hardier and more vigorous. Both<br />

types have a distinctive sweet<br />

aniseed flavour, but the Russian<br />

variety is milder. And most<br />

importantly (well, arguably), the<br />

Russian type is easier to grow as<br />

well.<br />

Tarragon flavour is suited to<br />

chicken and fish. Sprinkle over a<br />

whole roast chicken, or fresh fish.<br />

Also use sparingly to shake over<br />

poached eggs, fresh asparagus<br />

and roasted potatoes.<br />

FLAVOURSOME: Tarragon has a sweet aniseed taste, suitable for giving chicken<br />

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

your garden, or it is particularly successful in a large pot.<br />

Tarragon is the key herb ingredient<br />

in bearnaise sauce – and<br />

is also a popular herb used in<br />

flavouring vinegars. You’ll also<br />

find tarragon in tartare sauce,<br />

alongside capers.<br />

Tarragon likes a fertile, sunny<br />

and well-drained spot in your<br />

garden. Because it grows higher<br />

than most edibles, place it at<br />

the back of your vege or herb<br />

garden.<br />

Once you’ve found your perfect<br />

spot to plant your seedlings,<br />

dig in some compost<br />

and blood and bone fertiliser.<br />

Now you’re ready to plant.<br />

Dig holes roughly 3cm deep and<br />

space the seedlings in them, 45cm<br />

apart. Give them a good initial<br />

watering. But don’t over fertilise,<br />

as this can makes the leaves thicker,<br />

which reduces their flavour.<br />

You can also plant tarragon in<br />

pots. Use a large pot to avoid the<br />

tarragon becoming root bound –<br />

as this can reduce the flavour of<br />

the herb.<br />

Use your outdoor living areas<br />

all year round<br />

• UV protection for summer<br />

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand<br />

has b en a proached in a bid to<br />

fina ly repair the potholes in New<br />

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.<br />

Coastal-Burw od Ward city<br />

counci lor David East wants<br />

WorkSafe to pre sure the car<br />

park’s private owners into<br />

repairing the potholes which are<br />

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.<br />

WorkSafe chief inspector<br />

a se sment southern Da ren<br />

Handforth said it may be able to<br />

take action under the Health and<br />

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a<br />

person conducting a busine s or<br />

undertaking.”<br />

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe<br />

is aware of the concerns raised by<br />

Cr East abou the car park.<br />

“WorkSafe has completed<br />

an a se sment visi to the site<br />

and is engaging with the owner<br />

to advise them that it is their<br />

responsibility to manage their<br />

risks a propriately.”<br />

Different parts of the car park<br />

are owned by various people<br />

and the Coastal-Burw od<br />

Community Board recently<br />

wrote to them about its concerns<br />

around health and safety.<br />

Cr East said the bi gest i sue<br />

in the past has b en ge ting in<br />

touch with the landlords and<br />

owners and ge ting them to<br />

agr e to anything. “The board<br />

a preciates that multi-ownership<br />

of the parking space may present<br />

a difficulty in co-ordinating<br />

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged<br />

to pa s these concerns onto you,”<br />

said the le ter.<br />

One reply has b en received so<br />

far from an owner who is wi ling<br />

to discu s the i sue. However, a l<br />

the owners would have to agr e<br />

to undertake work.<br />

Cr East said there had b en<br />

a “number of incidences” in<br />

the car park of people injuring<br />

themselves which had gone<br />

unreported.<br />

“I’ve always though that it<br />

has b en quite amazing that we<br />

haven’t had any serious a cidents<br />

or senior citizens perhaps<br />

tri ping in those potholes and<br />

doing themselve some damage.”<br />

He is confiden the new<br />

a proach wi l bring results.<br />

“I think the WorkSafe<br />

involvement may prove to be the<br />

lever that we are l oking for.”<br />

New bid to fix potholes<br />

Action looms<br />

on Hawke St<br />

car park<br />

THE PAPANUI-I nes<br />

Community Board has taken the<br />

rare step of starting a petition<br />

to figh the city council over<br />

funding.<br />

Signatures are being co lected<br />

in a bid to get funding for a community<br />

facility in Shirley.<br />

It comes after the city council<br />

removed funding for the centre<br />

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the<br />

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This<br />

was the site of the former community<br />

centre, which was badly<br />

damaged in the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake.<br />

The removal o funding<br />

prompted community board<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten<br />

to stan down, citing it as her “die<br />

in the ditch” project.<br />

Ms Jone said the board’s role<br />

is to represen the community,<br />

and by gathering signatures from<br />

residents, it was fulfi ling that<br />

role.<br />

“One of the roles of a community<br />

board is to represent and act<br />

as advocate for the interests of its<br />

community and this is what we<br />

are doing. The LTP and a nual<br />

plans are a l about lo bying the<br />

council.”<br />

Cave Rock<br />

Apartments’<br />

owners<br />

expect EQC<br />

sign-off<br />

this week<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave<br />

Rock Apartments ar expecting the<br />

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off<br />

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.<br />

Body corporate chairman Mike<br />

White said the group had gone<br />

into mediation with IAG and EQC<br />

on February 20, and signed off<br />

on a deal with IAG on February<br />

2 – coincidenta ly seven years<br />

to the day after the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake. However, they<br />

are waiting for EQC to sign the<br />

agr ement.<br />

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted<br />

the agr ement, there’ l be no<br />

problem with them doing that.”<br />

The apartment suffere damage<br />

in the February and June, 20 1,<br />

earthquakes and were demolished in<br />

late 2012. In 20<strong>16</strong>, IAG’s offer of the<br />

difference betw en indemnity value,<br />

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,<br />

$<strong>16</strong> mi lion, was rejected by the body<br />

corporate.<br />

The mediation agr ement<br />

prevented Mr White from disclosing<br />

the se tlement amount, but he said it<br />

involved the two parties paying “a bit<br />

more money than they’d wanted to<br />

earlier.”<br />

A WOOLSTON butcher proved<br />

to be a cut above the rest in an<br />

international competition.<br />

New World Fe ry Rd butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently<br />

came second a the World<br />

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern<br />

Ireland.<br />

It was the firs time Mr Garth<br />

had competed in the cha lenge<br />

and he was “rea ly proud” of<br />

how the team performed.<br />

“We produced some top quality<br />

products and came away<br />

with a g od result so we’re very<br />

ha py,” he said.<br />

The preparation for this year’s<br />

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was<br />

intense as the team members<br />

met in Auckland every two<br />

months for lengthy w ekend<br />

practices.<br />

Mr Garth, who has been a<br />

butcher for 14 years, said the<br />

competition brought back his<br />

pa sion for the job.<br />

“Doing a l thi stuff and<br />

m eting new people, s eing new<br />

ideas, it just brings that flair<br />

back for you,” he said.<br />

Mr Garth hopes t own a<br />

butcher shop of his own someday<br />

but says for now he wi l focus<br />

on ge ting mor experience<br />

and on the 2020 cha lenge.<br />

“In two years’ time, we’ l be<br />

going back to try and win the<br />

title,” he said.<br />

AN U PER Ri carton butcher<br />

has proven himself to be a cut<br />

above his Au sie rivals at an<br />

international competition.<br />

Elite Meats owner Corey<br />

Winder was named in the a l<br />

star team a the World Butchers’<br />

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.<br />

Mr Winder and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which<br />

includes W olston butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth, finished second<br />

in the competition.<br />

He said the cha lenge started<br />

as a “transtasman test match”<br />

seven years ago.<br />

The preparation for this<br />

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge<br />

was intense as the team<br />

members met in Auckland<br />

every two months for lengthy<br />

w ekend practices. Mr Winder<br />

said coming second against 1<br />

other countries was a “fantastic”<br />

result.<br />

“To get second behind Ireland<br />

was a huge achievement and to<br />

be ahead of Australia is an<br />

even bi ger thing for us,” he<br />

said.<br />

But Mr Winder admires the<br />

Australian team.<br />

“Those guys over there<br />

[Australia] are on top of their<br />

game, they do a g od job,” he<br />

said.<br />

“And it just showcases that<br />

New Zealand has got some<br />

of the best butchers in the<br />

world,” he said.<br />

Stunning by design, practical in layout<br />

This builder has done it again, producing yet another quality<br />

home that includes so many of the features requested by<br />

today’s discerning buyer. Starting with the trendy, plaster<br />

exterior finish, this brand new 258m2 home is appealing from<br />

the moment you pull up. The huge entertainer’s kitchen offers<br />

a fabulous work space with long granite bench tops, heaps of<br />

storage, a 90cms oven with gas hobs & also a double fridge<br />

space, plumbed for water, located in the butler’s pantry. The<br />

kitchen opens out to the sunny & spacious living room that<br />

interconnects, through cavity sliders, with the formal lounge.<br />

Both rooms have stacker sliders that provide easy access to the<br />

large patio & landscaped rear garden. The 4 bedrooms are all<br />

good sized doubles, with the separate study also having the<br />

option to be used as a 5th occasional bedroom, if required.<br />

A separate laundry & large walk-in linen room complete the<br />

floor plan. The finishing touches, which include quality tiled<br />

bathrooms with under-tile heating, carpeting to the drive-thru<br />

double garage, a log burner, 2 heat pumps & an alarm, further<br />

enhance the appeal of this stunning property. Positioned on a<br />

927m2 section, and enjoying an open aspect to mature trees<br />

with no neighbouring homes on 2 boundaries, this is family<br />

perfect both inside & out. Priced keenly for early interest, make<br />

this yours sooner rather than later.<br />

What to ask when you’re<br />

asking for a home loan<br />

Low interest rates and easing restrictions<br />

on home loans may be making property<br />

ownership look more attainable for some<br />

buyers, but that doesn’t mean mortgages<br />

are easy to get.<br />

“If you’ve got your deposit tucked<br />

away and you’re seriously looking for<br />

somewhere to buy, it’s a good idea to start<br />

shopping for a mortgage before you need<br />

one,” says Real Estate Authority (REA)<br />

chief executive Kevin Lampen-Smith.<br />

“The home-buying process can move<br />

fast, and it makes things much easier if<br />

you’ve already got a lender on side. This is<br />

known as pre-approval and it can take a<br />

lot of the uncertainty out of knowing what<br />

you can afford.”<br />

First up, a lender will want to know<br />

how much deposit you have. Most lenders<br />

expect first home buyers to have at least<br />

20 per cent of the amount they want to<br />

borrow. With the average New Zealand<br />

house price now at $550,000, that means<br />

you’ll need to show that you’ve saved<br />

$110,000 if you want to buy a property at<br />

that price. They’ll also ask you how much<br />

you earn and how much you spend, along<br />

with details about any other debts or loans<br />

you might have.<br />

“While the bank or financial institution<br />

needs to make sure you’re a safe risk, there<br />

are two sides to this relationship,” Lampen-<br />

Smith says. “It’s important that you feel<br />

confident about what you’re signing up to<br />

before you commit.”<br />

He says that your first question – after<br />

how much they will let you borrow, and<br />

what the interest rate will be – should be<br />

about fees: what will you have to pay for<br />

taking out this mortgage?<br />

For example, will you have to pay a low<br />

equity fee if you have less than 20 per cent<br />

deposit? Will there be any penalties if you<br />

pay off a chunk of the mortgage early? Can<br />

they waive your normal account fees if you<br />

take out a mortgage?<br />

Sometimes a lender may want to loan<br />

you more than you’re comfortable paying<br />

out of your weekly income.<br />

“Remember that you must be able to<br />

afford the repayments and you don’t have<br />

to borrow up to your highest limits if you<br />

don’t want to,” Lampen-Smith says.<br />

“Ask what the best way is to structure the<br />

mortgage based on your circumstances,<br />

and whether this is flexible if things<br />

change.”<br />

For example, are you better off with a<br />

table loan (where you sign up to make<br />

regular payments for a set term up to 30<br />

years), or will you be able to pay it off<br />

faster if you have a revolving credit loan<br />

or offset mortgage? Also, will you still be<br />

able to afford the mortgage payments if<br />

the interest rate goes up? If the property<br />

needs a lot of renovation work to become<br />

liveable, could an interest-only loan<br />

work? Lampen-Smith says the lender or a<br />

mortgage broker should be able to explain<br />

all the pros and cons of these different loan<br />

types, including how they’ll affect your<br />

payments and the total amount you’ll have<br />

to pay.<br />

Most lenders will require you to have<br />

insurance for a property when taking out<br />

a mortgage. You may be encouraged to<br />

get this insurance through the lender or<br />

sign up to any number of other insurance<br />

policies, such as mortgage protection,<br />

income protection and life insurance.<br />

“Look at these carefully,” Lampen-Smith<br />

says. “Don’t feel pressured to sign up but<br />

do think about how you’ll manage if things<br />

change for you in the future. Life changes<br />

don’t respect the terms of a mortgage<br />

and you might find yourself wanting or<br />

needing to sell the house and buy another<br />

one. Ask the lender if the mortgage (and<br />

its terms and conditions) is portable to<br />

another property.”<br />

Some lenders offer sweeteners to entice<br />

people to sign up with them. Examine the<br />

conditions of these deals carefully. Don’t<br />

let the short-term ‘carrot’ of a $200 gift<br />

voucher blind you to a higher interest rate.<br />

“Signing up to a home loan is like<br />

entering any long-term partnership,” says<br />

Lampen-Smith. “Do your homework<br />

before you commit and you’ll be a lot<br />

better off in the long run.”<br />

Building blocks<br />

to a new home<br />

For Sale - Rolleston<br />

Offers Invited<br />

As Cantabrians continue to move forward,<br />

when building a new home, here’s a reminder<br />

to pay attention to some of the fine details...<br />

Anyone intending to build a new home<br />

should have the builder’s contract checked<br />

out by an experienced lawyer.<br />

A payment schedule can also minimise<br />

financial risks. Issues that you may have to<br />

deal with include:<br />

the deposit, guarantees and warranties<br />

If you want to compare building<br />

companies, it’s important to get down<br />

to finer details such as how many power<br />

points there are per room, the type of<br />

windows you are having or which paint<br />

finishes are included.<br />

Questions to ask builders include:<br />

• Do you have a completion guarantee<br />

and how does it<br />

work?<br />

• Is there a loss of<br />

deposit guarantee?<br />

• Is the company a<br />

Registered Master<br />

Builder and does<br />

it use third-party<br />

written guarantees?<br />

• What is the<br />

schedule for<br />

payments?<br />

• How are the deposit<br />

and progress<br />

payments<br />

administered?<br />

• Are they held in a solicitor’s trust fund?<br />

• Will the master franchisor complete<br />

the build if the franchisee goes out of<br />

business<br />

• What are the exact specs?<br />

• Are the prices fixed?<br />

• What is excluded from the build?<br />

• Are there any restrictions on<br />

driveways or any other connections?<br />

• Can you speak with clients who have<br />

just completed a build?<br />

Do your homework before you decide on a<br />

building company and you will have a less<br />

stressful time once the building process<br />

starts.<br />

Your guide to all things Real Estate<br />

in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

Great results are possible<br />

with smaller sections<br />

Newer Rolleston subdivisions offering land sizes<br />

upwards of 300 square metres are introducing an era of<br />

denser living, and signalling the town is coming of age.<br />

These more affordable smaller and medium sized<br />

land packages are attracting a wave of first home buyers<br />

to the town.<br />

Currently, sections on the market are priced from<br />

around $155,000 for 400sqm in the new Acland Park,<br />

$<strong>16</strong>5,000 for 500sqm in Goulds Estate and $175,000<br />

for 447sqm in Faringdon, while Newman Park has a<br />

starting price of $190,000 for 685sqm.<br />

Before signing up, it is advisable for prospective<br />

purchasers to determine developer requirements, in<br />

terms of the design approval process and covenants<br />

governing what can be constructed on a section;<br />

checking if there are any design requirements or<br />

dispensations relating to site coverage and building<br />

distances from each boundary. While more site<br />

coverage may be advantageous the downside of this is<br />

that houses can appear crammed in.<br />

Established companies with a history of building in<br />

the <strong>Selwyn</strong> district have the expertise to guide clients<br />

through these processes, helping ensure a smooth and<br />

hassle-free build.<br />

Less land translates to less work around the yard,<br />

ideal for those who dislike gardening, have work<br />

commitments which eat into their time, or where they<br />

want their weekends free for recreational pursuits.<br />

It is still possible to create attractive outdoor areas<br />

for relaxing and entertaining even with a smaller yard.<br />

Design is the key to making the most of any section,<br />

both in terms of the house itself and landscaping of the<br />

bare dirt outside.<br />

“There’s lots of design options for a small section,”<br />

suggests Evan Beker, co-owner and operator of<br />

Generation Homes South. “It’s a case of working with<br />

clients so they get the right house on the right section<br />

to capture the sun while ensuring outdoor flow in a way<br />

that suits their needs.”<br />

When working with a smaller lot, the solution is to<br />

choose a more compact design which still provides<br />

all the features of a three or four bedroom home like<br />

walk-in robes, reasonable living spaces and a good<br />

sized functional kitchen. To achieve this, Evan and his<br />

team assess where space can be saved, to be used more<br />

effectively elsewhere.<br />

“Even on a smaller footprint, buyers want all the<br />

features of a larger home so minimising certain aspects<br />

like hallways puts space where it counts. Outdoors, we<br />

might subtly narrow the width of the eaves so an area is<br />

more open or to gain more sun,” adds Evan.<br />

With every section differing in size and orientation,<br />

Evan says the secret is addressing how the house and<br />

outdoor features will be used, strategically siting each<br />

for indoor/outdoor flow with sheltered entertaining<br />

areas close to kitchens and living room. Fencing to keep<br />

children and animals safe, courtyards, patios, decks,<br />

small or no lawn, decking and strategic planting may all<br />

combine to creating a stunning setting where there is<br />

intimacy and space for play.<br />

Small sections can have<br />

attractive outdoor areas.<br />

Strategic planting can help create a<br />

stunning setting on a smaller section.<br />
