WE PROFILE a good bloke on pages 16,17

Simon Moore is a strong opponent of

the planned Fulton Hogan quarry near

Weedons, and has no problem going public

about that. The louder his drum beats, the

better it will be for those trying to stop the quarry.

And in Simon, Fulton Hogan has not only a vocal opponent

but a skilled one as well. Simon’s background is in upholding

the law and bringing people to justice.

He was a detective sergeant in the police and worked on high

profile investigations like the Kirsty Bentley and Scott Watson

cases.

He has also been a publican – a job that also requires a fair

amount of nous and psychology.

Should be an interesting battle.

Break the law this week

and you could end up on television

• By Anan Zaki

IF YOU’RE pulled over by the

police this week, you may end up

on TV.

The popular show Police

Ten 7 will be filming across

the district from Thursday to

Sunday. The camera crew will be

accompanying

Rolleston

Constable Blair

Croucher.

“We will be out

in force with our

road policing,

targeting drink

drivers, speeding

drivers and

inconsiderate

drivers,” Constable Croucher

said.

“They [drivers] might get a

bit more than what they expect

when they get pulled over. They

might end up having their face

on TV.”

He said the camera crew may

also be at the Farmlands Cup

pre-season rugby match between

the Crusaders and Highlanders

in Southbridge on Friday.

“Having Police Ten 7 does instil

the trust and confidence within

the community and the wider

areas of Selwyn. We’ll really

be responding to what jobs are

on the radio. They [producers]

pick and choose what they want

afterwards.”

Constable Croucher hopes

to showcase the good side of

Selwyn. The footage will air

about a year after filming, once

court proceedings for the cases

have been completed, he said.

This is not the first time Police

Ten 7 has filmed in the district.

“This is about the fourth or

fifth year they have come along

with me,” Constable Croucher

said. “In the past we’ve had

vehicle accidents. Out here

with Main South Rd on our

back doorstep, plus a lot of

rural roads, we do have nasty

accidents with serious injury

and, unfortunately, we do have

our fair share of fatalities.”

Fatal crashes will not be aired

on the show, he said.

Other Selwyn incidents

shown on Police Ten 7 have

included drunk and disorderly

behaviour, drink drivers, assaults

and thefts.

However, dust control measures

The work was set out in the

The district council

the project when it set

Meanwhile, only four

Mr Taggart says that could be

“With Fire and Emergency

Mr Taggart says Federated

High temperatures

pose extreme risk

• By Anan Zaki

THE FIRE restrictions come at

the hottest time of year, the high

temperatures pose an extreme risk,

firefighters say.

Two weeks ago – as temperatures

hovered above 30 deg C – Hororata

firefighters had to put out a fire

which reignited from the site of a

stubble burn originally lit in August

last year.

Hororata chief fire officer Bruce

Sayer urged farmers to re-check

old stubble burns from the past

few months as the summer heat

intensified.

Two fire trucks from Hororata

spent two hours dampening down

the fire on Struie Rd.

“The farm owner had seen the

smoke and it was really close to a

cereal crop. So it could have been a

lot worse,” Mr Sayer said.

“It was just a pile of ash and log

that reignited, so definitely keep an

eye out and recheck burns in recent

months because it’s surprising how

long the fire can stay in the centre.”

Leeston chief fire officer Lloyd

Clausen warned rural residents not

to use lawn mowers or other equipment

which could create sparks.

“In the heat of the day, early

morning to late afternoon they should

not be doing any work that could

create sparks,” Mr Clausen said.

Innovative father and son duo

First there was the castle

and now there is a

self-sustainable, ecofriendly

tiny house. Anan

Zaki talks to the father

and son behind the

creations

MAJESTIC: The Chapman Castle was Dennis Chapman and his son Alan’s first project, now the

DENNIS CHAPMAN built a

castle overlooking Tai Tapu six

years ago.

Now his son Alan is building a

tiny house, with inspiration from

the castle.

The tiny house in Tai Tapu is

off the grid and self-powered by

solar panels.

The house can generate enough

power to charge an electric car,

which will keep its two residents

self-sustained. It also has a large

thermal mass, which means the

temperature of the building does

not change.

The technological features were

right at home for Dennis, who

made his money in electrical

engineering companies Enatel

and Swichtec. His son is also an

electrical engineer with his own

company Darc Technologies.

“We built the tiny house to see

if we could utilise all the technol-

pair have built a tiny house.

ogies we used in the castle into a

tiny house that was economically

accessible to everybody,” Alan

said.

Meanwhile, 4km away, the

Chapman Castle takes things on

a grander scale.

“We didn’t set out to build

a castle. We actually set out to

build a thermally efficient building

that was fully automated,”

Dennis said.

The family loved the Dunedin

Railway Station’s stone entrance

way and drew inspiration from

that.

“Because it was all stone and

there were slip windows . . . we

decided we needed a theme,”

Dennis said.

From there the idea of a castle

was born. But the castle was no

ordinary castle.

“In the castle, in the middle

of winter we’d have no heating

for a week and the temperature

will only change by two degrees,”

Dennis said.

“To retain heat and store water

in the castle, we’ve got 30,000

litre water tanks – four of them.

Half of them are thermally insulated

so we use those to store heat

to the house.”

The tiny house in comparison

has 3000 litre water tanks.

The Chapman’s hope to take

the building concepts from the

castle into the market to develop

more eco-friendly houses.

The castle also generates

enough electricity to not only

power the itself, but three electric

cars and supply power to the

grid. Other innovations include

translucent light panels instead of

windows in order to prevent heat

escaping the house.

“The psychology of that is it

looks like you’re looking at a

window. You’ve got the light

coming through the window,

even at night,” Alan said.

“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.

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!

I want to thank the Pacific

Leprosy Foundation for

giving us back our future.

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.”

Please can you help other families like Lorena’s to

be free from the fear of leprosy?

A gift of $35 will provide preventative 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 Solomon

Islands.

Fire rages, homes at risk

design tiny house after castle

DESIGN: The Chapman Castle is an eco-friendly house.

With modern LED technology,

panel lights are cheaper than

installing windows or skylights.

The heat lost through the windows

costs more than running

LED lights, Dennis said. As both

father and son confessed, the tiny

house is an experiment. Alan

plans to move in to the house

once it is completed in March

and live there for a year.

“The experiments we’re doing

here is to prove what’s possible.

Maybe it’s not that cost effective

at the moment, but it will be in

the future,” Dennis said.

The roof is made of foam steel,

which is commonly used in large

commercial buildings like supermarkets,

not homes.

“It has an advantage, it gives

a relatively simple structure to

build and gives really good insulation,”

Dennis said.

“It does have some downsides

we’ve found. It costs somewhat

more than what we expected and

we’re not sure why that was, so

we’re dreaming up new methods

at the moment.”

The house is also movable. After

a year of living and learning

about the tiny house, Alan says

it will be lifted up and moved

to another location – likely as a

family bach.

Alan hopes he can one day sell

the technologies used in the tiny

house through Darc Technologies.

“It’s just ways of making houses

that are better insulated, have

more exposed thermal mass

inside so they regulate their

temperature passively a lot better

and making them as off grid as

possible,” Alan said.

Because it is an ongoing

experiment, the cost of the

tiny house is still not clear,

he said. Other than the

technological advances, the

house is also an artwork.

“That represents one of the

family friends wanting to make

an art piece out of it. He’s built

it looking like native bush to

portray that it’s low impact for

the environment,” Alan said.

He says the family has had

both positive and negative

comments about the looks of the

tiny house.

“Some people love the idea of

having a tiny wee house you can

pick up and move in a container

truck.”

INNOVATIVE: Technologies from the Chapman Castle are being

experimented in the tiny house in Tai Tapu.

Skin problem? No problem!

Join us for our skin fit challenge with our

brand new skincare line Dermaviduals,

the future of skincare has arrived.

A modern, holistic approach to skincare

Bloom Boutique Medispa owner Ashlley

McIntosh is excited to announce a new

direction. After three years in Darfield

growing to a staff of three including

herself, she decided to revamp her business

model based on careful research and a

more considered way to help her clients.

“I’ve just spent the last year studying and

re-training on how to care and rejuvenate

skin in a completely different way than

how I was originally taught, which

focussed on ingredients such as acids and

peels.”

Ashlley says that by going back to

science to study the skin, how it functions

and its structure, she soon discovered a

better option that was more supportive.

Corneotherapy is a remedial skin

treatment methodology, which aims to

keep the skin intact and build it up without

disrupting the barrier function.

With this new information in mind,

Ashlley introduced a new German

skincare range called dermaviduals®,

developed specifically for this style of skin

care and treatment. She is fully trained

and qualified in the use of this product

to custom-make creams, cleansers and

serums to suit individual requirements.

“I can now customise every product to

suit individuals on the day. Dermaviduals

is a range of products that support the

barrier function of the skin with no

disruption and has an amazing delivery

system without disturbing that function.”

Taking a holistic approach to her work

means not only looking on the outside

but also the inside. Ashlley now offers

one-hour consultations with the client to

discuss any diet, lifestyle, or health issues

and work out the best skin care needs on

the day, plus any future treatments. The

consultation includes a treatment and

home care plan that the client can take

away.

To complement her new

style of business, Ashlley

has added Beauty Chef,

a certified organic and

nutrient-dense range of

inner beauty products

that support the gut,

body and skin.

Ashlley, Brittany and Anna

Investigation

into

dumped mail

• By Anan Zaki

ABOUT 100 pieces of mail have

been found dumped in Rolleston.

The mail was found on Elizabeth

St on January 27.

A spokeswoman for New Zealand

Post says it is working with police

and investigating the find.

NZ Post said last week that it had

collected the mail and would deliver

them.

“We apologise for this delay and

any distress this may have caused,”

the spokeswoman said.

NZ Post was alerted to the public

on social media by a woman who

found the mail on Elizabeth St.

Under the Postal Services Act

1998, people who wilfully open mail

not addressed to them can face up to

six months in prison or a fine of up

to $5000.

Your Local Views

FINAL WEEK!

Margaret Holding

responds to last

week’s Selwyn Times

article about the

planned skate park in

West Melton

AS A long-time resident

of West Melton and

having lived in both

Gainsborough and

Preston Downs until

recently, it amazes me how

narrow-minded people are

regarding not only change,

but also forethought

regarding the skate park.

If noise could be a

problem, then Westview

Cres would not be a good

site.

Brinsworth Reserve

is on a corner and has a

walkway through it.

Therefore, the logical

place seems to be Retford

Common. The houses

surrounding it being far

enough away for noise and

it would bring this huge

empty space alive with

activity and children’s

laughter.

The domain is

the worst place suggested,

especially for children.

Skateboarders do not

travel by car but by

skateboards.

I think maybe Bruce

Russell’s comment that

“the domain is the only

logical place” does not

consider children’s safety.

Crossing the main

highway is a nightmare

anyway without adding

more pressure on it.

It is possible that some

children will come from

Rolleston, but their

parents will have to bring

them so limiting the

numbers.

Whereas, why not

cater for the West Melton

children and have it within

skating distance of the two

biggest subdivisions with

no major road to contend

with and a medical centre

on the same side of the

highway?

Come on West

Meltonians, speak out and

use your logic.

Backyard Critters

Lacewing predator

IN THE August 15 issue

of Selwyn Times, I wrote

an article on the aphid

predator Tasmanian

lacewing (Micromus

tasmaniae). Another

predatory species found

in my garden at Lincoln

is the Australian variable

lacewing (Drepanacra

binocula).

Although the two species

are very similar in size,

the variable lacewing adult

has unsymmetrical, pointy

forewings compared to the

Tasmanian lacewing.

However, the variable

lacewing larvae are much

broader than their cousins

and they are found on

leaves containing colonies

of their prey including

aphids, white fly and

psyllids.

As many as 182 eggs can

be laid by females, near

prey, either on leaves or

on long stalks. The jaws of

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology

a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column

living things around us. Check out the full list of invertebrates

found at http://naturewatch.org.nz/projects/backyardbiodiversity-bugs-in-lincoln

PREDATOR: Female Australian variable lacewings

(Drepanacra binocula) can lay 182 eggs.

adults are used for holding

onto and chewing prey,

whereas the jaws of larvae

are hollow and are used to

suck up the body contents

of the prey.

The final larval stage

forms a loose cocoon

in a sheltered space and

then pupates in a smaller

cocoon inside the other.

Lacewing larvae have

natural enemies, including

a small, 2.5mm long

parasitic wasp that injects

an egg inside the lacewing

which develops and

eventually kills its host.

Fire rages, homes at risk

SeniorNet teaches modern day skills

• By Emily O’Connell

ONLINE BANKING, emailing and

photo editing.

These are just a few of the skills being

taught at Selwyn SeniorNet’s learning

centres in Leeston, Rolleston and Lincoln.

Voluntary tutors run classes for people

50-years-old and over on how to use

computers, phones and other electronic

devices.

Classes are suitable for beginners and

those who want to learn how to use

software such as Microsoft Office, Word,

Excel, Publisher, Outlook, email, Gmail,

online banking, ancestry, photo editing

and similar activities.

Selwyn SeniorNet tutor and committee

member John O’Hara said its classes are

beneficial and people can learn a variety

of skills. He said about 46 people attended

its classes last year.

Classes cost $10 per term to attend and

includes an annual membership fee.

SeniorNet members can also get discounts

on technology at Noel Leeming.

Mr O’Hara said classes will start back

next week and run throughout the school

term from 10am-noon at the Lincoln

Surfer Lui comes to the rescue

• By Louis Day

WHEN LUI Arnold went for a

surf during the school holidays

he never thought he would

end up saving two men from

drowning.

THe 15-year-old Lincoln High

School student was about to

catch a wave at Sumner when he

heard screams for help.

“I started paddling towards

the sound, I had to paddle probably

500m. When I got closer to

them, I could kind of see their

heads bobbing in and out of the

water,’’ he said.

It took Lui 10 to 15min in the

treacherous sea to get to them.

Another surfer who also came

to help paddled to the swimmers

and they threw the pair their

boards.

“They were very grateful and

apologetic, they just said thanks

heaps. Once we got there they

were pretty out of breath, they

were really gasping and they

seemed quite panicked.”

Lui and the other surfer did

their best to swim out of the rip

while the two swimmers used their

boards to paddle back to the beach.

“It was really tough swimming

out there, it was quite rough, it

was pretty mellow out towards

the beach, but it got really

choppy towards the rip current.”

Lui said the rip had taken the

two men a long way out. Because

of the rough water they could

not even see the beach. “It was

quite scary at times, we were so

isolated.”

Lui managed to help get the

swimmers back on to the beach

within 10min thanks to the help

of his former surfing instructor

Aaron Lock who arrived on to

the scene.

After helping get the men to

the beach, Lui headed back out

into the water.

“I didn’t really think much

about it at the time, I just went

back out there and started surfing

again.”

Mr Lock was in-between

surf lessons when he heard the

screams for help.

“By the time my other instructor

Oliver and I had got

out there, Lui and this other

surfer had given them their

boards, but their boards were

too small so we got them on to

our longboards and paddled

them ashore.”

Mr Lock said the two men

were lucky to be alive.

“They were in serious trouble,

they were starting to take on a

lot of water.”

The two swimmers were given

the all clear after being assessed

by a surf lifesaver.

SPECIAL EVENT: The volleyball

teams from Pineglades and

Naturists, firefighters

celebrate volleyball

anniversary event

THE PINEGLADES Naturist Club

hosted the 40th annual volleyball

match between the club and

firefighters on Saturday.

The event – known as the Whittington

Cup – has often been held

at the club grounds at Brookside

Rd on Waitangi Day.

However, as this was seen as

a special anniversary, Fire and

Emergency NZ suggested that

this year it be held on Saturday to

enable families to enjoy a catered

dinner and band.

Mayor Sam Broughton unveiled

a new umpire’s chair to commemorate

40 years of the event. He

also took part, playing for the

firefighters.

Prior to the challenge, a number

of people participated in a series

of fun games testing skills such as

rolling out hoses, catching eggs

and throwing tennis balls into

strategically placed buckets.

The Pineglades naturists won the

title this year, defending last year’s

crown.

Shrek takes over Kirwee

• By Anan Zaki

BROCK COTTRELL is not your

ordinary teenager.

The 13-year-old of Rolleston is

the district’s very own grumpy

ogre, Shrek.

He’s part of the Kirwee Players,

who will perform Shrek Jr in

April.

Rehearsals for the show started

on January 27, involving 40 children

aged eight to 16.

Brock says it is “nerve-racking”

to play the main character of the

show.

“When I first found out, I was a

bit overwhelmed, but I’m getting

comfortable with the idea. I’ve

been practicing, getting to know

the part.”

The story of the show will be

similar to the film Shrek.

Said Shrek Jr production manager

Courtney Hyde: “It follows

the story of Shrek, a grumpy

ogre, who just wants to be left

alone in his swamp and his trusty

stead, the hilarious Donkey.”

“They are tasked with finding

and rescuing Princess Fiona and

bringing her back to marry the

very short and irritating Lord

Farquaad. During the rescue

Shrek and Princess Fiona fall in

love,” Ms Hyde said.

Brock says he liked that a

grumpy ogre could have a big life.

LEAD: Liam Morris, Lara Chiswell and Brock Cotterell will star

in the Kirwee Players show, Shrek Jr.

He’s also watched the movie.

“I first watched it when I was

nine and then I re-watched it

when I was older and realised all

the underlying adult jokes in it,”

he said.

Brock hasn’t told too many

people about his new role yet.

“When they rang to tell me

what part I had gotten, mum was

really excited. I probably was

pretty calm on the outside but

inside I was super excited and

happy that I had got the lead.”

•Shrek Jr will be at the

Kirwee Community Hall on

April 12,13 and 14. Ticket

announcements are on the

Facebook page, Kirwee

A POTENTIAL solution to curb

feral and stray cats will be put to

the district council next month.

Springfield township

committee secretary Sean Ellis

is calling for a cat protection

programme to reduce stray cats

across the district, and says he

has backing from cat rescuers.

He will present the proposal

to the district council’s next

meeting, on March 13.

But before stray cats can

be controlled, Mr Ellis says

domesticated must be micro

chipped.

“We also need a cat drop off

centre, a place where stray and

feral cats once trapped can be

taken and assessed . . . microchipped,

de-sexed and re-homed,

if at all possible,” Mr Ellis said.

Selwyn Times reported last

month that Mr Ellis called for

the district council to be a leader

in the predator free movement.

Following the article, Mr Ellis

said he received threatening

phone calls, but says they weren’t

serious and doesn’t want it to

distract people from the subject

Solution for

stray cat issues

of controlling cats.

“It’s a really emotional thing

and I want to keep the emotion

out of it,” he said.

Feral cats posed a danger to

native bird life, Mr Ellis said.

“Just think about it, if it was a

dog left roaming about killing

everything smaller than itself,

how long would it be before we

acted?”

The district council is

currently working on a report

on dealing with predator cats,

which is due next month.

A cat rescuer in the district,

who did not want to named in

fear of receiving threats, says she

supports Mr Ellis’ proposal.

“Most people have cats or

like cats. It’s about making sure

every cat in Selwyn has someone

responsible for it,” the woman

said. “If it’s a stray cat it’s about

getting it a home. Get someone

who’s responsible for it, make

sure it’s de-sexed.”

She said controlling cats is an

emotional subject.

“People love cats or hate cats.

It gets everybody fired up,” the

woman said.

You used to be a police officer,

when did you serve and what

was your role?

I was a detective, and when I

left the police I was a detective

sergeant based in Christchurch

for most of the time. I served

between 1983 and 1999.

What made you want to

become a police officer?

It was one of those boyhood

things. I had worked on dairy

farms and I didn’t mind that.

My uncle was a policeman in

Oamaru and just talking to him

and looking at career options,

I decided to join the police. I

worked full time on dairy farms

for about 18 months before I was

accepted into the police at 20.

What were some of the

notable cases that you worked

on?

Kirsty Bentley was the last one

I worked on. That’s still in the

newspapers. It’s a cold case now. I

was brought in after her body was

found up in the Rakaia Gorge. I

was brought into review that part

of the investigation, which meant

that I lived in Methven for about

two months.

Was it a difficult time with the

attention on the case?

It was intense, but it was also

disappointing that we couldn’t

resolve that for the family. About

a year or so before that I was

involved in the [Marlborough]

Sounds homicides as well and I

lived in Blenheim for six months

and hardly got a day off. That’s

still controversial and still people

ask me about that. It never leaves

you, even though you left the

police in 1999. People still want

to know about both those cases

because there was a lot of public

interest in them.

– life isn’t quiet for former cop

Do you believe justice was

served in the Sounds murders?

Yeah I do, no doubt at all.

I’ve heard all the theories, I’ve

heard everything. We lived and

breathed that [investigation] for

six months, it was a huge amount

of time and in those six months I

think I got two or three weekends

off. We were working 14-15 hours

a day. So if anyone thinks there

wasn’t a lot of work put into that

they’re very wrong.

Did you enjoy police work?

Of course. You’ve got to be

extremely dedicated and working

on an inquiry, whether it would

be Blenheim or Ashburton, it

takes you away from your home

and your family. I didn’t have

children at that stage, but I was

working with guys that did. It’s

hell of a hard on them and I don’t

think people realise that.

Why did you leave the police?

In 16 years I saw a lot of things

and I guess that while I was

still young enough, I thought I

had done a lot in the police and

I felt it was time for a change

in scenery so I ended up being

a publican. I had the Madeira

Hotel in Akaroa for a couple of

years.

So you became a publican,

that’s a bit of a change isn’t it?

HIGH PROFILE: Former detective Simon Moore worked on cases such as the Marlborough

Sounds murders of Ben Smart and Olivia Hope, and the murder of Ashburton schoolgirl Kirsty

Bentley.

The thing about the police is

that it can become very negative.

A lot of the time you’re dealing

with the very negative side of society

and you’re seeing tragedies.

You’re having to tell people that

their loved ones have been killed

and over 16 years that can take its

toll. People that have been in the

police for 30-40 years, well they

have got my admiration. They

deserve a medal. The thing about

becoming a publican is that I saw

a slightly different side to people.

Some good and some bad, but the

police career gives you a pretty

good grounding to deal with people.

You get to know a lot about

people in the police. It gives you a

really good grounding to understand

how people work and those

connections you make in the police

are lifelong connections. My

business partner [at e-Migration]

is an ex-police officer. Immigration

officers are ex-police officers,

you bump into them all the time

and they all remember you.

What were some highlights of

being a publican in Akaroa?

I knew what to expect from

people who couldn’t handle their

alcohol because I’ve dealt with

that plenty of times. But Akaroa

itself was a fantastic place to live.

A small population of locals, but

a huge population of Cantabrians

with holiday homes. So on the

weekends the place would just

swell with people from Christchurch

and when they went away it

was just your local people. I could

still be living there, but I was

made an offer for the pub and

I couldn’t refuse it. It’s bloody

hard work being a publican.

Particularly in a small town that

increases five times in size in the

weekends. Trying to find staff,

trying to please everybody and

keep within the law making sure

people aren’t drink driving, you

take that responsibility quite

heavily. As soon as I got there I

bought a courtesy van so that we

could get people home safely. To

be honest at the start there was a

bit of a sideways look from those

people who were perhaps a little

wayward of the law. But when

they found out I was there as a

publican and not a policeman it

was all good.

Our People

Moore takes on next challenge

Was it after that you became

an immigration adviser?

After two years of living and

breathing [being a publican]

you need a bit of time out and I

thought I’d have a few months

off. But I got to about six weeks

and I was so bored, I saw an ad in

the paper for what they used to

call an immigration consultant

with a big company. I applied for

it and the guy from Wellington

who interviewed me was an

ex-cop, so I got the job. I started

off as a consultant for them for

about six months and after the

six months we got the business

running so well that they decided

to start a branch, I ran that for

a couple of years and went back

to becoming a publican again in

Hanmer Springs of all places.

Where in New Zealand are

you originally from?

Born and bred in Christchurch.

The suburb I was brought

up was in Bishopdale, went to

Christchurch Boys’ High School.

I lived two years in Timaru after

I left the police. When I came

back from Timaru, I lived in that

Bishopdale area again and then

Templeton in the early 1990s

because I was working in the

Hornby police station as detective.

I threw my name in the hat

for a detective sergeant’s role after

just having moved to Templeton

and I got that role and it was in

New Brighton. I couldn’t turn

the job down because I put my

name in the hat, so I had to commute

backwards and forwards

everyday.

You own a 2010 Ford

Mustang, have you always been

into performance cars?

Yeah I am, I’ve always been a

V8 man really. I’ve always liked

those classic V8s and particularly

Mustang, out of the lot of them.

I was lucky enough to be able to

buy one in 2017. I bought it in

Auckland when I was up there

for a meeting, went and had a

look at one, liked it so much I

bought it and drove it home.

Much to my wife’s – I wouldn’t

say disgust – but surprise.

Tell me a bit about your

family?

I’m still married [to Tina],

some people would say luckily

sometimes, particularly her. Both

of my daughters attend Lincoln

High School, that’s the connection

of the swimming side of

things. Both of them [Sophie and

Holly] swim competitively. I do

OPPOSED:

Simon

Moore

has been

campaigning

against a

proposed

Fulton

Hogan

quarry near

Weedons.

a lot of officiating at swim meets,

I’m a trained official. It’s a very

busy life I have to say.

How did you meet your wife,

Tina?

Oh crikey. It was way back

in the dairy farm days actually.

The farm I used to work on [in

Springston South], her father

managed the place and we sort of

worked together and we knew the

family and it just went on from

there basically.

Did you move to Weedons

recently?

We bought our place in

Weedons just before we moved

back to town from Akaroa in

2001.

What spurred you onto

advocating for something like

the proposed quarry?

I’ve advocated for things all

my life if you look at the police

side of it. The thing that got me

annoyed and concerned is that

when I bought at Weedons, it

was surrounded by farms and

horse training stables. When we

went there we knew we would

get planes going overhead. We

accepted that. We knew Ruapuna

Park was not far away and when

the north east wind is blowing

and they’ve got events there we

can hear them quite clearly. We

knew that when we moved in

there. We’ve got prisons around

us, halfway houses for youth

offenders, we knew all that when

we moved in and we accepted

that. But we never had a quarry.

I never in my wildest dreams

thought that they would contemplate

putting a quarry between

Templeton and Weedons. The

thing that disturbs me the most

is the more I look into this the

more I can see that we are so

far behind the rest of the world.

India and Pakistan, for example,

have 1km setback rules. We don’t

have anything like that.

It’s our

Relax and unwind with

A Month of Sundays

Lakeside Soldiers Memorial

Hall opening

Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall was officially opened on Friday

1 February, where over 140 people from Lakeside and the wider

Selwyn district attended. Mayor Sam Broughton, Hon Amy Adams,

Council staff and members of the Lakeside Community Memorial

Hall Committee were also in attendance.

A representative from Te Taumutu Rūnanga performed a blessing

and a local Anglican minister provided a blessing and a prayer.

Construction of the $1.67 million facility began in April 2017 and

was completed in November 2018. The new facility has replaced the

original earthquake-damaged hall, which was demolished several

years ago, with a modern, flexible community space and special

events venue.

Selwyn’s first A Month of Sundays event was held last weekend with around 100 residents

bringing a picnic and enjoying live music, face painting, the new Lincoln Library hours, garden

games and more for free.

If you missed it, they will be held every Sunday in February 1–3pm at the Lincoln Green outside

the Lincoln Library. It’s a fantastic afternoon listening to a line-up of talented acts including Li’l

Chuck and the One Man Skiffle Machine, Lee Martin, 4 Stroke and the Nor’west Brass Band. The

Lincoln Library will also be open for all to browse.

Special thanks to Faringdon for their support.

For the full A Month of Sundays line up and more Summer in Selwyn events go to selwyn.govt.nz/

events or facebook.com/summerinselwyn

For postponements and cancellation notices check Facebook, selwyn.govt.nz/events or phone

347 2800.

Selwyn Community Fund round one awarded

The Selwyn Community Fund has recognised the work of a variety of groups and organisations within

Selwyn. Round one has seen 22 organisations receiving funding, with a total of $39,250 allocated. A

number of these organisations are from the sports, children, events and arts sectors.

Cr Murray Lemon, Chair of the Selwyn Community Fund Committee was involved in allocating the fund

for round one.

“There was a diverse range of applications for funding reflecting the range of organisations operating in

the greater Selwyn district all helping to make Selwyn a great place to live, work and play,” he says.

Applications for round two close Tuesday 30 April.

“We look forward to assessing the innovative requests we are sure to attract.”

To apply visit selwyn.govt.nz/selwyn-community-fund.

New park-and-ride for Rolleston

Residents who have gone past the Council’s Rolleston headquarters

recently will have noticed work being undertaken on the

construction of a new car park and public park-and-ride facility, on

the corner of Norman Kirk Drive and Kidman Street. This work is

part of the extension of the Council car park and both car parks are

expected to be completed in May, depending on the weather.

Council Chief Executive David Ward says the work was set in the

2018–2028 Long-Term Plan last year, as part of the extension and

reconfiguration of the Council building.

“This is an exciting time for the Council and the district, as these

works are a clear indication of how quickly Selwyn is developing,”

Mr Ward says.

The new public park-and-ride car park will provide 79 public car

spaces and six cycle racks. This will allow people to park close

to local bus stops in Kidman Street. It will also extend the parking

capacity for Council staff with 59 additional car spaces and six

motorcycle spaces. The additional car parks will provide extra

parking for residents and visitors which will ease demand.

During construction, there will be some minor traffic disruptions

along Norman Kirk Drive, however there will be temporary traffic

management in place.

Closer to this time, we will provide more public information about

temporary traffic management via Council Call, the Council’s

website and Facebook page.

Fire restrictions in place

Fire and Emergency New Zealand has advised that the Selwyn district is now in a

restricted fire season.

Anyone wanting to light a fire outside in the Selwyn district will need to obtain a permit from

Fire and Emergency.

Gas or charcoal barbecues can still be used without a permit.

“We normally have to put fire restrictions in place at the start of the summer, but the unusually wet

spring meant that at the start of this summer the fire risk was very low so there was no need for

restrictions,’’ says Fire and Emergency Principal Rural Fire Officer Bruce Janes.

“However, the recent run of warm weather has dried out all the vegetation growth caused by the

unusual weather patterns and we have a very large fuel load that could potentially cause a fire to spread

very quickly.

“With the fire risk indices moving steadily upwards, it is time to introduce restrictions,’’ Mr Janes says.

People can apply for fire permits online at checkitsalright.nz or call Fire and Emergency on 0800 658 628.

For information on how to protect your property, go to fireandemergency.nz/at-home.

We’re encouraging households on Council water supplies to avoid watering lawns and gardens

between 6–9am and 4–9pm.

These are the times when households use the most water, especially during weekends. If everyone waters

their lawns at the same time over summer it places huge demands on water supplies.

The best time to water your lawn is between 9pm–6am, as this is when the least evaporation occurs

and water has the best opportunity to soak into the ground.

If you are considering watering your lawn during the day between 9am–4pm, check the weather

conditions first. Watering during the daytime is fine on cooler overcast or wet days. Watering

during the middle of the day on hot or nor’west days is not a good idea as a significant amount of

water will evaporate.

Although there are no formal water restrictions in place at present, we’re continuing to review water use

throughout summer. If demand for water increases, formal water restrictions may be introduced.

You can check water restrictions online at selwyn.govt.nz

Promising softballer

wants to take

his skills the max

• By Jacob Page

MAX SARGEANT is turning

the skills he learnt in his

backyard into a promising

softball career.

The 14-year-old Lincoln High

School student was part of the

Canterbury under-15 infield

which went undefeated at the

national championships.

He was named in the Rest

of New Zealand tournament

team, and will also trial for the

development Black Sox later in

the summer, which could lead to

a tour of Australia this year.

Max can play any infield

position but prefers second base

or short stop.

“I like how you get a lot of balls

coming your way and you’re

always in the action,” he said.

Max has been playing softball

since he was five and has

practiced his technique in

the backyard with his dad

Peter.

Max has a family pedigree,

with his uncle Michael Sands

being a former Black Sox player

in the early 2000s.

Max also plays premier

reserves, under-23s and under-

18s for Halswell, meaning he

often has three games a week.

“It’s playing against big people

which has been difficult, but

it’s been a learning year and,

hopefully, I can put those skills

into my 18s game.

“I’d like to make the

Canterbury under-18s and keep

moving up to national squads.”

Max said he would love to

emulate his uncle and become a

second generation Black Sox.

He also wants to play at college

level overseas.

But for now, Max is just

motivated to get better.

Two national titles

for West Melton

show jumper

WEST MELTON’S Tegan

Fitzsimon won two major titles

on the final day of the national

show jumping championships at

McLeans Island on Sunday.

Her horse Windermere

Cappuccino added a

national title to his already

comprehensive CV when he

triumphed in the feature event

of the three-day competition at

the National Equestrian Centre.

The final two rounds of the

national grand prix was watched

by a good-sized crowd, which

were treated to a nail-biting

finish that came down to the last

fence.

Tegan and Windermere

Cappuccino came into the

final round just 0.64sec behind

Lincoln’s Steffi Whittaker on

Eros K.

Both horses jumped clear in

the first speed class on Friday

and then led again in the first

round of the grand prix.

It all came down to the final

round at the Gerit Becker

designed course and it didn’t

look like it was going to be

Fitzsimon’s day when Vollie

took a pole.

“He just felt like he was

running out of fuel towards

the end. It was really hot and

he hasn’t done a lot of jumping

since he won the World Cup

final,” she said.

Whittaker and Eros K had

been looking good all show, but

the big chestnut stallion made

one mistake mid-way through

the round, and then knocked

the last fence down as well, to

give the win to Fitzsimon and

Windermere Cappuccino.

“I didn’t really know where

I was going to be with the

horse and I didn’t even think

I would be able to start in this

competition,” she said.

“I am just grateful that

I am here. (Windermere

Cappuccino) has given me

everything today and he has

come out on top.

“He really does deserve this

title. I am so pleased that his

name is now on the Mary Dalley

Memorial Trophy.”

She also admitted to a few

tears, and predicted there were

many more to come as it looks

like he will be sold to interests in

the United States.

Fitzsimon also finished third

in the class with her other horse

Double J Monarch.

This came on top of another

great win in the national 1.30m

horse championship on her

faithful campaigner, Alacazam

MH.

Lincoln’s Sophie Geddes also

had a thrilling result in the

national pony championship,

taking the win and second

with her ponies Benrose

Silver Shadow and Te Ngaio

Raggamuffin respectively.

“I have never been first and

second before, so it is a pretty

cool feeling,” she said.

“I have never won a national

title either though.”

The 15-year-old has had

Benrose Silver Shadow for

just over a year and Te Ngaio

Raggamuffin for two years.

Big wins for Leeston-Southbridge, Weedons

LEESTON-Southbridge

maintained their strong grip on

second in the Canterbury country

one-day cricket competition with

a five-wicket win over Kaiapoi at

Leeston Park on Saturday.

After winning the toss and

electing to field, the hosts soon

had Kaiapoi in trouble with Ben

Chamberlain removing the top

three batsman with just 31 runs

on the board.

Partnerships continued to be

hard to build as Ben Donkers

ripped through the middle and

lower order on his way to 4-24

to restrict Kaiapoi to 137 all out

inside 42 overs.

Wayne Bell’s 37 was the only bit

of resistance for the visitors.

Leeston-Southbridge’s run

chase was anchored by an

unbeaten 47 from Tim Gruijters

and handy contributions from

Chamberlain (30) and Rupert

Young (23) as they chased down

the target with 15 overs to spare.

Weedons kept their faint

semi-final hopes alive with

a comfortable 124-run win

over cellar-dwellers Darfield at

Weedons Domain.

A 100-run third wicket

partnership between

wicketkeeper Todd Inness (80)

and Sam Wilson (56) set the tone

for the hosts as they posted 222

for nine from their 45 overs.

Darfield opening quick bowler

Toby Kars picked up 5-40 to

keep his team in the game at the

halfway point.

However, Darfield’s run chase

never gained momentum.

Only four batsmen made it to

double figures as they limped to

98 all out in 25 overs.

Charlie Robson was the pick of

the Weedons bowlers with 4-24

from his seven overs.

Southbrook stay at top spot on

the ladder after a 55-run win over

Sefton at Southbrook Domain.

The home team could thank

a 70-run ninth wicket stand

between Sam Ermerins (30) and

Luan Blom (38 not out) for their

healthy 252 all out. The required

rate of more than five runs an

over proved too much for Sefton

as they could only manage 197/7

in reply, in spite of a gritty 78

from opener Tim Harrison.

Oxford held their nerve to

chase down Cheviot’s target of

191 and claim victory by two

wickets at Cheviot Domain. An

unbeaten 62 from wicketkeeperbatsman

David Fulton proved the

difference.

On Saturday Southbrook

will host Weedons, Sefton will

welcome Cheviot, Leeston-

Southbridge will travel to face

Oxford and Darfield will hit the

road to play Kaiapoi.

Lincoln teen’s volleyball gold

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN HIGH School

volleyballer Ellen Watts

surprised herself by winning a

gold medal at the national

beach championships in

Mt Maunganui.

The 16-year-old won the

under-17 national doubles

title with Kate Allan from St

Andrew’s College.

The pair

were playing

together for

the first time

and represented

Canterbury

at the championships.

They won

Ellen Watts

Wednesday February 6 2019

all seven of

their games

and did not drop a set until the

final.

“It made me so happy to be in

a final and win it because all the

hard work paid off,” Ellen said.

They beat North Harbour in

the final, winning two sets to

one.

“I had no idea what to expect

as it was my first beach volleyball

tournament of any kind.”

Ellen, who lives between

Lincoln and Tai Tapu, said she

and Kate had met before on the

netball court.

“While we knew each other

we’d never played together

so it took a while to get our

combination right and to get our

calls right,” Ellen said.

“I watched the senior As at

school and thought I’d give it a

go.” Previously she has played

netball, tennis and touch rugby

socially.

“It’s harder to run in the sand

and beach (volleyball) is more

about smart play rather than

hitting the hall hard like in

indoor.”

Ellen will start her second

season with the Lincoln High

School senior A indoor volleyball

team, where she is a pass/hitter.

“I’ve certainly improved in

both areas but winning a beach

title has proved to myself that I

can do it and I just have to keep

working hard.”

Ellen made the South Island

age-group indoor volleyball

team last season and is eager to

make the New Zealand squads

for both indoor and beach over

the next 12 months.

Glover wants to

drive out of TQ class

on a winning note

• By Allan Batt

SPEEDWAY HAS been a way

of life for 30-year-old Rollestonbased

racer Kyle Glover.

And while he sees this

weekend’s New Zealand TQ

championship at Ruapuna as

one of the last opportunities to

earn a podium spot in the class at

national level, he is sure he will be

around the tracks for many years

to come.

“I’m in my 14th season of

racing and we’ve purchased an

Esslinger-powered midget, but

while I plan on hanging onto the

T.Q for a while, the focus will

move up to the bigger class in

time,” he said.

Glover has been a dominant

force on the South Island scene

in recent years, finishing second

in last year’s New Zealand TQ

grand prix and being a former

South Island champion. But he

says that it’s likely to be the last

TQ nationals he contests at his

home track, and wants to make it

a memorable one.

“It’s going to be a really tough

weekend of racing. With 45

entries, including a bunch from

the North Island, it will be a

torrid battle with just 24 cars

facing the starter for the 25-lap

final. I’m happy with how I’ve

been going this season and am

SELWYN TIMES

ready for this.” The defending

champion is Prebbleton’s Jeremy

Webb who has struck form at the

right time of the season, winning

the two most recent TQ features

at Ruapuna. Glover thinks that

Webb is just one of a number of

genuine contenders.

“The Bakers from Auckland are

going to be tough with Lawrence

and his two sons Ryan and Scott

all highly-rated drivers. Duane

Todd from Napier is a former

national champion, Ryan Barry

from Auckland is always at the

pointy part of the finishing line,

and locally, Liam McCoubrey is

always a tough opponent and he’s

had a podium at the nationals to

back that up.”

Glover is adamant lapped

traffic will be a factor in the event

and that quick decisions will be

vital for success.

“The traffic will be thick

for at least the first half of the

race. An incorrect line or snap

decision could impact very

quickly on drivers’ chances. It

will be as much about drivers’

concentration as it will be about

car performance.”

He is also wary of a challenge

from two of Christchurch’s

top sprintcar drivers, Matt

Leversedge and Jamie Duff.

Motoring

Versatility key to Sportage’s success

ONE OF MY work colleagues

has a reasonably new Kia

Sportage sport utility vehicle.

I’ve often talked to her about

her choice, she says it suits her

busy lifestyle with a youngster in

tow, as well as recreational interests.

It’s also a nice driving experience,

the high, upright seating

position offers a commanding

view and everything is laid out

internally for ease of use.

There are many reasons why

the Sportage has been a highselling

SUV in this country, it

appeals to families who want the

practicality of a wagon without it

being too big.

The Sportage sits squarely in

the mid-size SUV bracket, think

Toyota RAV4 or Honda CRV.

Sure, there are other SUVs in the

Kia stable such as Sorento and

Carnival, however, the Sportage

is there for those who don’t need

huge. Kia Motors has a new

Sportage for 2019. Well, it’s pretty

much a facelift really, there’s new

cosmetic detailing both internally

and externally and the fitment of

additional equipment, much of it

unseen for safety purposes.

Beneath, not a lot has changed

mechanically, the petrol and

diesel engine options are all a

carryover. However, there has

been considerable suspension

development work carried out

to suit down under conditions;

KIA SPORTAGE: Freshened up with a facelift.

effectively it means there’s a

choice of a soft setting in some

models, while a new GT Line

incorporates spring and damper

rates biased towards sporty. There

are two petrol powertrain options

in Sportage, a 2-litre unit and a

2.4-litre unit, while a 2-litre diesel

rounds out the range, bearing in

mind there is also the option of

four-wheel-drive in some variants.

The evaluation car was a new

front-drive-only GT Line Urban

model with the entry-level 2-litre

petrol power plant. The engine is

a beauty in terms of smoothness

and refinement, and it is channelled

through a paddle-shift

six-speed automatic transmission,

the whole driveline reeks of

sophistication.

The engine is rated by Kia at

114kW and 192Nm.

Even though it loses the strong

torque spread of its 2.4-litre stablemate,

the 1999cc unit has solid

bottom end strength realised

at 4000rpm. As a consequence,

mid-range acceleration is ushered

in respectably, and with the

lively behaviour common with

twin-camshaft engines it also

likes to have the revs up offering

a vibrant response to accelerator

request, and quick downshifts

through the transmission.

There are three driverselectable

engine management

protocols in the Sportage. I used

normal mostly, but there are eco

and sport settings which, quite

obviously, refer to economical

engine management or for more

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

response when sport mode is

selected.

What I find most surprising

about the modern SUV is

the way they handle, they have

become almost car-like in the

way they have been engineered to

tackle a corner. A lot of that has

to do with the development work

I mentioned in my introduction,

there is a definite firmness

underneath, but it doesn’t greatly

affect ride comfort.

The big benefit is the way the

Sportage steers and behaves in a

corner, even without four-wheeldrive

the suspension is a complex

fully independent type and that

allows good freedom of movement

and strong body balance.

In terms of specification, the

Sportage GT Line Urban wants

for little. At $45,990 it gets all

of Kia’s high-tech safety kit and

plenty for comfort and convenience,

including for 2019 new 19in

wheels, touch screen in-cabin

display, panoramic sun roof and

LED lighting network. As an

aside, the Sportage range starts at

• Price – Kia Sportage GT

Urban, $45,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4495mm; width, 1855mm;

height, 1655mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1999cc, 114kW, 192Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.1sec

• Fuel usage – 8.2l/100km

just $35,990 which, by my way of

thinking, is fabulous value.

There’s been a lot of fresh and

interesting product coming out of

the Kia factories in recent years.

The company has a lot of appealing

product which is very suitable

for New Zealand roads and drivers.

And, of course, with the Niro

range there are also hybrids and

electric vehicles which are much

the talking point today.

However, the Sportage is there

for those who like traditional. I’m

sure those who choose the midsize

crossover will, just like my

colleague, find it a great choice.

Check before you light

Select a sheltered site at least 10 to 30

metres from, and downwind of shelter belts,

hedges, fences, buildings, neighbouring

properties or anything else that could catch

alight and burn. Build your bonfire several

days before you light it. Cover it, and leave

it to dry out.

You may want to let your neighbours

know the date and time of your fire as a

courtesy to reduce unnecessary emergency

calls to Fire and Emergency.

Dampen down a 3-metre area around

the bonfire, to prevent any unplanned fires.

Have a hose, water sprayer, a shovel and dirt

or a mechanical digger within easy reach in

case the fire gets out of control.

At least one person equipped with a

shovel must monitor the fire at all times and

include a ‘no go’ zone around the bonfire to

keep children and pets safe.

Your fire must be completely extinguished

before leaving the area. Mix up the water

with ashes and embers with a shovel and

repeat these steps until the fire is completely

out.

Remember to keep an eye on your bonfire

for two days after you put it out.

Dial 111 immediately in an emergency.

Anything that could cause loss of life, serious

injury or loss of property is a fire emergency.

With the dry and hot weather comes

the increased risk of rural fires across the

Selwyn district.

Before you light an outdoor fire, you

need to check the fire season by visiting the

Fire and Emergency New Zealand website

www.checkitsalright.nz as you may need to

apply for a fire permit.

One way rural property owners can

reduce the risk of fire on their properties is

to be very careful using machinery during

an extreme fire danger period as sparks

from vehicles or mowers could easily start

a fire.

It is also a good idea to carry appropriate

fire extinguishers, shovels, or knapsack

sprayers.

If you are going to light a fire and have the

permit if required, check the latest weather

and wind speed and direction. Only light

your fire when there is little or no wind

forecast.

SELWYN TIMES

Make sure you pamper your cauliflower

Cauliflower appreciates

a bit of pampering, and

rewards you with a flower

that has become a true

Kiwi favourite. Diana

Noonan looks into the

classic vege

KIWIS LOVE ’EM

In New Zealand, cauliflower

can sometimes get bad press,

but that’s only because those

who don’t favour the vegetable

are so vocal in their dislike for

it. In fact, Kiwis can’t think

too badly of caulis because,

along with broccoli, we each

consume around 4.43kg a year

of the brassica. New Zealand

grows close to 49,000 tonnes of

broccoli and cauli a year (that’s

a lot of cauliflower cheese!), and

pay around $4/kg for the curds

at the supermarket. Commercial

cauliflower growing takes place

mainly in mid-North Island

regions with warmer climatic

conditions that allow for yearround

production. Because

caulis react badly to extreme

weather events, prices for the

vegetable can skyrocket with

little warning.

COLOURFUL CAULIS

It’s tempting to think that

green, orange and purple

Once thought of as winter-only produce, modern varieties of

cauliflower ensure we can now enjoy this versatile vegetable

throughout the year, and in a variety of colours.

caulis are the result of genetic

modification, but plant breeders

assure us the rainbow-coloured

curds are the product of

selective breeding. Scientists

are also claiming that coloured

caulis are better for us than

white varieties. The orange

variety is said to have 25 times

the concentration of beta

carotene than white varieties,

while purple curds contain

anthocyanin that may help

prevent heart disease.

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

Cauliflower and its cousin,

broccoli, have a very close

connection. Their botanical

variety is botrytis which,

although sounding like

something you wouldn’t want

to find in your greenhouse,

actually comes from a Greek

word that means ‘cluster’, as

in a bunch of grapes. Cauli

comes from caulis (the Latin

word for cabbage) and floris,

meaning flower.

Grow your own caulis

– The 3-Ps of success

PREPARE

Caulis are expensive to buy

so it’s worth putting in all the

effort required to prepare an

excellent bed for them to grow

in. Your garden soil should be

deeply dug (at least a spadeblade

deep), finely worked up,

well draining and in full sun.

Well-rotted animal manure and

as much compost as you can

spare should be added to the

soil, along with a scattering of

dolomite lime to bring the pH

level to between 6.5 and 7.5. If

you are not an organic gardener,

and want to use a garden

fertiliser to increase

soil nutrients, choose one that is

lower in nitrogen. If you don’t,

your caulis will produce leaf at

the expense of curd.

PROTECT

Young cauli seedlings are a

favourite food of slugs and snails.

Protect them with a scattering

of slug bait. Young seedlings are

vulnerable to being disturbed

and dug up by domestic animals

and birds. Cover them with

netting to protect them. By

choosing a fine mesh netting,

you will also have the advantage

of keeping white butterfly off

your plants.

PAMPER

While enjoying good drainage,

the roots of cauliflowers do not

like to dry out completely so keep

soil damp and mulch around the

plants. During the first month of

growth, side-dress the seedlings

with liquid manure, but use more

seaweed than animal manure

in your mix. Seaweed contains

potassium, which encourages

flowering and, after all, your

cauli is just that – a flower.

WHEN TO SOW & GROW

CAULI

If you want to grow your

own cauli from seed, be aware

that it is not always a reliable

germinator so sow a pinch

more seed than you would

with, say, cabbage. It takes

approximately four weeks from

sowing to transplanting time.

In warmer regions, May to

June are the traditional months

for transplanting cauliflower

seedlings into the garden. In

cooler regions, cauli can be

planted throughout spring and

summer but seedlings placed

in the garden in autumn are

unlikely to mature until late

in the following spring.

nigel and lisa welcome customers

to their exciting new premises

Nigel and Lisa Fleck are a local family who have two primary school

aged children at school locally, and an older son who is now working

in the automotive industry in Christchurch. Lisa was born and raised

in Selwyn and Nigel has lived here for over 20 years. “We love living

in Selwyn, and think we are very lucky to live in such a vibrant and

growing community,” said Lisa. “Our passion for our business is really

about the people, our incredible staff and our customers. We love that

we have a small enough town that lots of customers feel like friends”.

Nigel and Lisa purchased Jones Road Auto in 2012. It has grown from

2 staff to 14 and now has two branches, Jones Road Auto in Rolleston

and Selwyn Auto in Springston. Their core values have always been

conducting themselves with integrity, providing exceptional service

and a high standard of workmanship.

Nigel has over 20 years of mechanical experience and Lisa is a

qualified financial advisor, who previously worked in the banking sector

in both investment and lending capacities. Working together as a team

they bring a great mix of skills, complementing each other perfectly.

“The business has grown massively from what was taken on, that

has been thanks to our amazing local community,” said Lisa. “We are

community-focused people and make sure we are continually giving

back to our community.”

taking

the next step

Nigel and Lisa are very excited to take the next step and move

from leasing to owning their own premises. The new premises are

purpose built and twice the size of the current premises.

The couple is proud to employ a great team of experienced,

high performing mechanics. “We love that we have a great work

environment and think that the positivity comes through to our

customers,” said Lisa. “Our office staff give fabulous customer

service and we’re excited to change things up in the new premises

by adding a service advisor/dedicated mechanic in the front office

to be on hand to answer queries, quote jobs and generally assist

customers on the spot.”

Jones Road Auto is making the most of the opportunity to increase

and upgrade equipment, and also to provide more space and staff

to reduce their waiting lists and create capacity for growth. They

have added an additional four hoists, upgraded some WOF testing

and diagnostic equipment, and also Electric Vehicle charging points

to ready themselves for future technology changes - currently

training their staff to be able to service and repair these vehicles.

They have added an additional WOF bay so that they can get

through those while-you-wait WOFs at twice the speed!

Nigel and Lisa have also added a

dedicated Fleet servicing lane in

response to local demand for more

specialised Fleet servicing. “We are

excited to grow this new part of our business

Nigel and

Lisa Fleck

and have an exciting Fleet offering and dedicated management

system. The growth of business in Selwyn has been phenomenal

and we’re going to now have the space to cope with that demand”.

carparks, a lovely new waiting room with guest Wi-Fi, a coffee

machine and a comfortable sunny spot to relax, read a magazine

and even recharge your devices!

when we started with no experience through to this next milestone

in our journey “ and add, “We can’t wait to see you at the new

Presenting your home for sale?

The presentation of your home

doesn’t mean spending thousands

on an upgrade either! So why

wouldn’t you want to do everything

possible to make it appealing to

prospective purchasers?

Street appeal

The exterior of your home is the first

thing buyers will see, so the property

needs to look well-kept and inviting. Take

a look at your place from the street and

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

lawns, trim trees, plants and hedges, add

some garden lights and place a nice pot or

plant by the front door. Ensure the house

exterior is cleaned or freshened with new

paint if necessary, hose down drives, paths

and fences, put stylish new numbers on

the house and perhaps buy a funky new

letter box!

Make an entrance

Even if your entrance or hallway is

small, you can still give it some wow! A

large mirror adds light and makes an

entrance look twice the size. Fresh flowers,

candles or a stylish piece of art create an

inviting first impression. Ensure floors are

clean whether timber, tiles or carpet.

Create space

Light, air and space are three key

factors in presenting a home to the

best advantage. Open up curtains

and windows and use lamps and light

fittings for mood and ambience. Arrange

furniture to maximise space and remove

items that make the room appear

cramped.

Fresh feel

Freshen rooms with new paint if

necessary, but aim for neutral tones which

are more versatile for buyers. Add a splash

of colour in cushions, throws, artwork or

a vase of flowers. Invest in a new duvet or

bedspread and always make the bed!

Clear out clutter

Storage space sells but clutter

complicates! Clean out your cupboards,

shelves and garage, and get rid of

unnecessary clutter. Buyers inspect

wardrobes and cupboards so tidy them up

and reduce the number of photos, books,

nicknacks on display – they distract

buyers, too!

Beautify the bathroom

Replace or resurface fittings if necessary,

but otherwise you can simply beautify

your bathroom with thorough and

fastidious cleaning, thick opulent towels,

a tray of beautiful soaps and some lush,

green plants. Invest in a new shower

curtain or laundry hamper, and maybe a

sleek, modern towel rail.

Clean clean clean

Cleaning is a mandatory part of

selling your home: have carpets, rugs

and upholstery commercially cleaned

and sanitised, clean drapes and blinds to

look like new, polish glass and furniture,

wash down all surfaces and fittings in

the bathroom and kitchen, clean all light

fittings, wash windows inside and out,

deodorise your home to eliminate any

odours from pets, cooking or smoke.

Outdoor spaces

Even a small patio, deck or terrace

can be enhanced with a café table and

chairs. Add some colourful accessories –

placemats, candle lamps, pots and plants,

and there you have an extra living area.

If space is not limited, hang a hammock,

string some outdoor lights, position a

garden sculpture or create a water feature

that buyers will love.

Hire a handyman

Squeaking doors, dripping taps, cracked

tiles, broken fences, leaking toilets or

appliances that don’t work are a turn-off

for buyers. If you can’t repair or replace

things yourself, then hire a handyman to

make sure everything in your home works

as it should.

Finish it first

Buyers want to see a finished home,

not one that’s still being fixed! So finish

everything before you list your home

for sale, then launch it onto the market

when it looks its absolute best – you have

nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Should I sell

my house

by myself?

Selling a property is easy, right? All

you need to do is stick a ‘for sale’ sign out

front, put a few photos online and hold

a couple of open homes. Job done! Why

wouldn’t you do it yourself?

The fact that private sales made up just

10 per cent of all residential property

sales in New Zealand in the year to July

(down from 13 per cent in 2017 and 17

per cent in 2014) might be a clue that it’s

not as simple and straightforward as you

might think. Research by the industry

membership organisation Real Estate

Institute of New Zealand (REINZ) found

that the median price for properties sold

by real estate agents was 10.9 per cent

higher than private sales.

“Property transactions are big financial

deals and they can get complicated very

quickly,” says Real Estate Authority chief

executive Kevin Lampen-Smith.

“Selling a home, which is likely to

be your biggest asset as well as being a

physical and emotional roof over your

head, is not like selling a used car or

flogging your unwanted Christmas

presents on TradeMe.”

If you decide to sell your property

privately, you will absolutely save on the

commission that you’d otherwise pay a

real estate agent,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Your target is to get at least close to

what an agent would get for your house.

You pay commission to an agent for

them to get the best price and that extra

value is what they will tell you pays your

commission for you, along with less

hassle on the DIY front.”

You know your property better than

anyone, so you’re in a good position to

‘sell’ its features. You’ll have complete

control over the process because you’ll

be dealing directly with potential buyers.

You get to decide every step of the

process, including choosing the method

of sale and setting the price.

However, with complete power comes

complete responsibility, Lampen-Smith

says.

“When you’re selling a property, you

have a legal obligation to share all the

relevant information about it, such as

any issues with the boundary or title, any

unconsented building work or alterations,

any known weathertightness issues

and whether there are any proposed

developments that could have an impact

on a buyer’s access, views or enjoyment.

“If you fail to do this, you could be in

breach of your agreement with the buyer.

This could put the sale in jeopardy, or the

buyer could seek compensation and take

you to court.”

Lampen-Smith says would-be private

sellers will need sharp marketing and

negotiation skills, as well as the ability to

be objective.

“What you think of the property and

what it’s worth won’t necessarily be

shared by potential buyers,” he says.

“It’s easy to sell a property when there

are a few houses for sale and many

buyers, but the market isn’t as buoyant

now in parts of the country as it was

a year ago. Your expectations of price

and ease of sale are aligned with market

conditions. These are things that real

estate agents think about day in and day

out.”

If you’re still keen to DIY it, make sure

you’ve got some good advice from the

experts.

“It can be very useful to get an

independent assessment of what your

property is worth, so you can work out

the price you’ll be willing to accept,”

Lampen-Smith says.

“You can research online (for free)

or pay for a registered valuation. We

strongly recommend that you use a

lawyer or conveyancer to handle all the

legal documentation, including the sale

and purchase agreement. You may also

want to consider help when it comes

to preparing the property for viewings,

whether that means engaging a home

staging company who will make it look

pretty, or a trusted friend to run any open

homes.”

Ultimately, there’s no reason why you

can’t sell your own property if you think

you’ve got the time, skills and energy.

You’ll need to be ready to juggle a lot

of things at once – including marketing

and negotiation – on top of your usual

responsibilities. Whatever you do, make

sure you go into the process with your

eyes open.

Incorporating show homes

in your planning process

There are many things to think about when you’re

considering building a new home.

For Sale - Rolleston

Offers Invited

Browsing show homes is a fantastic way

to get you thinking about practicalities,

needs, aesthetics and your wish list! Here

are a few consideration’s to help spark your

planning process.

• What is your exterior style? What kind

of homes do you like? Look around and

take a mental note of what you are drawn

to most.

• What kind of exterior materials do you

like? Once you’ve worked out the look

you like, research what materials are

available and find out about durability.

• How will you use your house? It’s

important to most people to have a good

indoor/outdoor flow and attractive,

sheltered outdoor living. Imagine your

home in various seasons.

• Landscaping is important. Look around

and consider what you like and don’t like.

Are you a structured formal garden type

or do you like a contemporary native

style?

• Sustainability and future-proofing

aren’t just buzzwords anymore. It’s

very important for your new home to

be environmentally friendly. Research

insulation requirements, solar hot water

heating, ventilation options and new

technology to ensure your home will be

affordable to run.

• Interior décor is really exciting. This is

where show homes can really help you get

to know current trends, colours, beautiful

furnishings and furniture. Collect home

magazines and figure out what you’d love

to emulate.

• Also, pause to give thought to

architectural components inside. Do you

remember a raised ceiling? What kind of

finishing do top homes use and which

styles are you drawn to?

• Heating is also a consideration. Have a

look at what show homes are offering.

• Kitchens form the heart of the house.

Show homes give you insight into the

latest styles, materials and storage

facilities available.

• Bathrooms are another big component.

They need to be as luxurious as you can

make them, so start dreaming.

Kitchens form the heart of

Stages of a new

house build

21

Before pegs go into the ground for a new house build there is

work to do.

An engineer will advise on a suitable foundation design

for the land to be built on, a soil test and surveying of the

fall of the land will be undertaken as part of Council consent

requirements, and a draftsperson or architect will draw up

a design and finalise plans which incorporate considerable

building specifications.

Before construction can get underway, building consent

must be gained from the local Council. This involves

submitting plans and supporting documentation, including

advising the licensed building practitioners who will complete

the work. The cost of consent is paid up front and covers

Council inspections, carried out at specific stages of the build.

Before the foundations are laid the site is scraped and loose

soil removed. A standard foundation will require a minimum

of a site scraping with the foundations completed as per the

building code. Where the ground does not meet minimum

building standards an engineer designed foundation will be

needed.

Once the foundations have been poured (often the job of

a specialised concrete placer) the drainlayer digs the drains

for sewerage, storm water and water supply. This work may

include an earlier percolation test. This ascertains the rate

water dissipates into the soil, with sandy soils absorbing more

water than denser clay based soils.

The house frames and trusses are produced off-site then

freighted in sections where the builder stands and fixes these

before the roof and gutters are put on, a task usually contracted

out to a roofing contractor. Scaffolding will be erected for

safety. The frames are then wrapped with a waterproof eco

ply or building wrap then the aluminium joinery (windows

and doors) are fitted. Installation of the cladding follows, the

plumber and electrician carry out pre-piping and pre-wiring

work, and the builder installs the internal doors.

Insulation is inserted in the walls and ceilings before the Gib

board is fixed and the plasterer prepares the walls and ceilings

for painting. Next the builder fits the architrave and skirtings,

the electrician drills the power point and lighting holes and

the plumber installs the bath. The painter

sands and paints the walls with the numbers

of coats applied depending on how dark the

chosen paint is. The kitchen may be installed

before the internal painting though usually

afterwards.

Final plumbing work includes shower,

bathroom fittings and toilet installation while

the electrician will be on the job to mount

and connect lights, power points, appliances

and other electrical fittings, as well as

sorting the final power connection. Tiling is

completed before vinyl or carpet flooring is

laid. Lastly, the painter returns to complete

any touch-ups needed.

Outside, concreting or asphalting is

generally one of the last jobs followed by

hard and soft landscaping such as building

decks, internal fences, laying lawns and

preparing garden beds.

Before the owners can move, a Council

Code of Compliance certificate should be

gained so the home has full insurance cover.

The electrician carries out

pre-wiring work.

Insulation is in place before

internal wall linings.

House frames and trusses are usually produced off-site.

Landscaping is completed last.
