between the district council<br />

headquarters and Kidman St.<br />

District council chief executive<br />

David Ward said the facility will<br />

have 79 public parking spaces<br />

and help ease congestion and<br />

demand for car parks in the area.<br />

The site will be next to bus<br />

stops, allowing users to catch<br />

a metro bus to major shopping<br />

centres in Rolleston and the<br />

surrounding areas, including<br />

Burnham, Christchurch and<br />

Lincoln.<br />

With a Metrocard discount,<br />

travelling on the bus from<br />

Rolleston to Burnham and<br />

Lincoln costs $2.65 and from<br />

Rolleston to Christchurch is<br />

$3.85.<br />

Mr Ward said the facility will<br />

have six cycle racks.<br />

It will also extend the parking<br />

capacity for district council staff,<br />

who will get 59 additional car<br />

spaces and six motorcycle spaces.<br />

“This is an exciting time for<br />

the council and the district, as<br />

these works are a clear indication<br />

of how quickly <strong>Selwyn</strong> is<br />

developing,” Mr Ward said.<br />

WE PROFILE a good bloke on pages 16,17<br />

Simon Moore is a strong opponent of<br />

the planned Fulton Hogan quarry near<br />

Weedons, and has no problem going public<br />

about that. The louder his drum beats, the<br />

better it will be for those trying to stop the quarry.<br />

And in Simon, Fulton Hogan has not only a vocal opponent<br />

but a skilled one as well. Simon’s background is in upholding<br />

the law and bringing people to justice.<br />

He was a detective sergeant in the police and worked on high<br />

profile investigations like the Kirsty Bentley and Scott Watson<br />

cases.<br />

He has also been a publican – a job that also requires a fair<br />

amount of nous and psychology.<br />

Should be an interesting battle.<br />

Break the law this week<br />

and you could end up on television<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

IF YOU’RE pulled over by the<br />

police this week, you may end up<br />

on TV.<br />

The popular show Police<br />

Ten 7 will be filming across<br />

the district from Thursday to<br />

Sunday. The camera crew will be<br />

accompanying<br />

Rolleston<br />

Constable Blair<br />

Croucher.<br />

“We will be out<br />

in force with our<br />

road policing,<br />

targeting drink<br />

Blair<br />

Croucher<br />

drivers, speeding<br />

drivers and<br />

inconsiderate<br />

drivers,” Constable Croucher<br />

said.<br />

“They [drivers] might get a<br />

bit more than what they expect<br />

when they get pulled over. They<br />

might end up having their face<br />

on TV.”<br />

He said the camera crew may<br />

also be at the Farmlands Cup<br />

pre-season rugby match between<br />

the Crusaders and Highlanders<br />

in Southbridge on Friday.<br />

“Having Police Ten 7 does instil<br />

the trust and confidence within<br />

the community and the wider<br />

areas of <strong>Selwyn</strong>. We’ll really<br />

be responding to what jobs are<br />

on the radio. They [producers]<br />

pick and choose what they want<br />

afterwards.”<br />

Constable Croucher hopes<br />

to showcase the good side of<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>. The footage will air<br />

about a year after filming, once<br />

court proceedings for the cases<br />

have been completed, he said.<br />

This is not the first time Police<br />

Ten 7 has filmed in the district.<br />

“This is about the fourth or<br />

fifth year they have come along<br />

with me,” Constable Croucher<br />

said. “In the past we’ve had<br />

vehicle accidents. Out here<br />

with Main South Rd on our<br />

back doorstep, plus a lot of<br />

rural roads, we do have nasty<br />

accidents with serious injury<br />

and, unfortunately, we do have<br />

our fair share of fatalities.”<br />

Fatal crashes will not be aired<br />

on the show, he said.<br />

Other <strong>Selwyn</strong> incidents<br />

shown on Police Ten 7 have<br />

included drunk and disorderly<br />

behaviour, drink drivers, assaults<br />

and thefts.<br />

“Most people we pull over react<br />

pretty good. They are generally<br />

very remorseful and sorry and<br />

admit fault,” Constable Croucher<br />

said.<br />

People can opt to have their<br />

faces blurred for the show, he<br />

said.<br />

TWO-CAR CRASH<br />

Firefighters responded to a<br />

two-car crash at the corner<br />

of Homebush and Deans Rds<br />

near Coalgate at 6pm yesterday.<br />

Crews from Coalgate and<br />

Hororata were called to clean<br />

up the crash which involved<br />

a Ford sedan and a Kia sport<br />

utility vehicle, said Hororata<br />

chief fire officer Bruce Sayer.<br />

The occupants of both vehicles<br />

were unharmed.<br />

HAY BALER CATCHES FIRE<br />

Flames shot up more than 3m<br />

after a hay baler caught fire in<br />

Sheffield on Thursday. Sheffield<br />

chief fire officer Neville Croy<br />

said the baler was “well alight”<br />

when firefighters reached<br />

the scene on Wrights Rd at<br />

11.30pm. No one was hurt and<br />

the cause is not known, he<br />

said. A tanker from Springfield<br />

helped put the fire out in about<br />

two hours.<br />

During construction, there<br />

will be some minor traffic<br />

disruptions along Norman Kirk<br />

Drive. However, temporary<br />

traffic management will be put<br />

in place.<br />

There will be also<br />

be minor delays and<br />

no on-street parking<br />

along some sections<br />

during the work.<br />

Closer to the time<br />

temporary traffic management<br />

through ‘Council Call’ in the<br />

However, dust control measures<br />

The work was set out in the<br />

2018-2028 Long Term Plan<br />

as part of the extension and<br />

reconfiguration of the district<br />

The district council<br />

allocated $700,000 for<br />

the project when it set<br />

the Long Term Plan last<br />

year. It’s expected to be<br />

ready by May, depending<br />

on the weather.<br />

The district council<br />

has previously stated<br />

David Ward that parking has become<br />

an issue in Rolleston due<br />

to the town’s booming population.<br />

It is currently working on a<br />

parking strategy to permanently<br />

ease congestion in Rolleston and<br />

Lincoln.<br />

Public consultation on the<br />

district council’s draft parking<br />

strategy closed in December and<br />

public hearings are expected to<br />

start in the first half of this year.<br />

Few stubble burn permits<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

FEDERATED Farmers is<br />

concerned that only 36 farmers<br />

across the district have applied<br />

for stubble burn permits.<br />

In new rules announced last<br />

July, <strong>Selwyn</strong> farmers will have<br />

to apply for permits to burn<br />

stubble during restricted fire<br />

seasons– a first for the district.<br />

New Zealand<br />

“There are certainly more<br />

arable farmers than that [36] in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>,” Mr Taggart said.<br />

“Potentially with the new<br />

permitting system maybe a few<br />

farmers are putting it in the toohard<br />

Taggart said.<br />

“I certainly thought more<br />

people would be on board with<br />

it, because a lot of people still<br />

burn.”<br />

Meanwhile, only four<br />

permits had been granted in<br />

Waimakariri and Christchurch<br />

as of last Thursday.<br />

Mr Taggart says that could be<br />

because of “significantly less”<br />

arable farms in the<br />

Waimakariri and<br />

Christchurch areas compared to<br />

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

“But there’s definitely<br />

concerning<br />

FENZ deputy principal rural<br />

fire officer north Canterbury<br />

Dale Wilhelm said he wants to<br />

spread the message about applying<br />

for permits.<br />

“With Fire and Emergency<br />

becoming a nationwide organisation,<br />

we’ve been trying to<br />

effectively have the same rules<br />

across the country,” he said.<br />

Previously, each district had<br />

different rules around stubble<br />

burns, Mr Wilhelm said.<br />

The permits give FENZ the<br />

ability to contact farmers who<br />

regularly burn crops, if the<br />

weather conditions are not<br />

ideal for stubble burns, Mr<br />

Wilhelm said.<br />

Said Mr Wilhelm: “Anyone<br />

looking to burn stubble can<br />

apply now for a permit to see<br />

them through the next few<br />

months.”<br />

Mr Taggart says Federated<br />

Farmers won’t help farmers<br />

who don’t use permits.<br />

“If they [farmers] run into<br />

problems with prosecution because<br />

they’ve been burning in a<br />

restricted fire season, Federated<br />

Farmers won’t be available for<br />

assistance in that case,” Mr<br />

Taggart said.<br />

It is offence to knowingly or<br />

High temperatures<br />

pose extreme risk<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

THE FIRE restrictions come at<br />

the hottest time of year, the high<br />

temperatures pose an extreme risk,<br />

firefighters say.<br />

Two weeks ago – as temperatures<br />

hovered above 30 deg C – Hororata<br />

firefighters had to put out a fire<br />

which reignited from the site of a<br />

stubble burn originally lit in August<br />

last year.<br />

Hororata chief fire officer Bruce<br />

Sayer urged farmers to re-check<br />

old stubble burns from the past<br />

few months as the summer heat<br />

intensified.<br />

Two fire trucks from Hororata<br />

spent two hours dampening down<br />

the fire on Struie Rd.<br />

“The farm owner had seen the<br />

smoke and it was really close to a<br />

cereal crop. So it could have been a<br />

lot worse,” Mr Sayer said.<br />

“It was just a pile of ash and log<br />

that reignited, so definitely keep an<br />

eye out and recheck burns in recent<br />

months because it’s surprising how<br />

long the fire can stay in the centre.”<br />

Leeston chief fire officer Lloyd<br />

Clausen warned rural residents not<br />

to use lawn mowers or other equipment<br />

which could create sparks.<br />

“In the heat of the day, early<br />

morning to late afternoon they should<br />

not be doing any work that could<br />

create sparks,” Mr Clausen said.<br />

LONG STANDING district<br />

councillor Debra Hasson won’t<br />

be standing for mayor this year.<br />

In spite of contesting the last<br />

mayoral race in 2016, Cr Hasson<br />

said she would prefer not to stand<br />

against a sitting mayor.<br />

She heaped praise on<br />

incumbent Mayor Sam<br />

Broughton, who last month<br />

confirmed he will stand in<br />

October’s elections.<br />

“I’m not standing for the<br />

mayoralty,” Cr Hasson said.<br />

“The current mayor is doing<br />

a really, really good job of being<br />

out there and representing<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> to a whole lot of the<br />

younger generation,” she said.<br />

“The only time I have stood for<br />

the mayoralty is when it has been<br />

up for grabs for everybody.”<br />

In 2016, then sitting mayor<br />

Kelvin Coe did not stand for<br />

re-election.<br />

But Cr Hasson will stand again<br />

to be a district councillor for the<br />

Springs Ward, a role she has held<br />

since 1995.<br />

self-sustained. It also has a large<br />

thermal mass, which means the<br />

temperature of the building does<br />

not change.<br />

The technological features were<br />

right at home for Dennis, who<br />

made his money in electrical<br />

engineering companies Enatel<br />

and Swichtec. His son is also an<br />

electrical engineer with his own<br />

company Darc Technologies.<br />

“We built the tiny house to see<br />

if we could utilise all the technol-<br />

pair have built a tiny house.<br />

ogies we used in the castle into a<br />

tiny house that was economically<br />

accessible to everybody,” Alan<br />

said.<br />

Meanwhile, 4km away, the<br />

Chapman Castle takes things on<br />

a grander scale.<br />

“We didn’t set out to build<br />

a castle. We actually set out to<br />

build a thermally efficient building<br />

that was fully automated,”<br />

Dennis said.<br />

The family loved the Dunedin<br />

Railway Station’s stone entrance<br />

way and drew inspiration from<br />

that.<br />

“Because it was all stone and<br />

there were slip windows . . . we<br />

decided we needed a theme,”<br />

Dennis said.<br />

From there the idea of a castle<br />

was born. But the castle was no<br />

ordinary castle.<br />

“In the castle, in the middle<br />

of winter we’d have no heating<br />

for a week and the temperature<br />

will only change by two degrees,”<br />

Dennis said.<br />

“To retain heat and store water<br />

in the castle, we’ve got 30,000<br />

litre water tanks – four of them.<br />

Half of them are thermally insulated<br />

so we use those to store heat<br />

to the house.”<br />

The tiny house in comparison<br />

has 3000 litre water tanks.<br />

The Chapman’s hope to take<br />

the building concepts from the<br />

castle into the market to develop<br />

more eco-friendly houses.<br />

The castle also generates<br />

enough electricity to not only<br />

power the itself, but three electric<br />

cars and supply power to the<br />

grid. Other innovations include<br />

translucent light panels instead of<br />

windows in order to prevent heat<br />

escaping the house.<br />

“The psychology of that is it<br />

looks like you’re looking at a<br />

window. You’ve got the light<br />

coming through the window,<br />

even at night,” Alan said.<br />

“I dream of a Pacific where this terrible disease has been eradicated and can no<br />

longer cause fear, stigma and discrimination in families and communities.”<br />

Lorena and three of her children were<br />

diagnosed with leprosy.<br />

Lorena says “Although our leprosy<br />

could be cured, we knew that<br />

sometimes there can be serious<br />

effects from the disease, like<br />

disabilities. I was terrified that more<br />

of my children would get sick.<br />

Then the Pacific Leprosy<br />

Foundation started its new<br />

programme which gives<br />

medicine to the rest of the<br />

family so that they are<br />

much less likely to get<br />

leprosy. It was wonderful<br />

to have that reassurance!<br />

I want to thank the Pacific<br />

Leprosy Foundation for<br />

giving us back our future.<br />

Now I want the rest of the countries in the Pacific to be<br />

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

costs a lot of money.”<br />

Please can you help other families like Lorena’s to<br />

be free from the fear of leprosy?<br />

A gift of $35 will provide preventative treatment for<br />

one household contact of a leprosy patient.<br />

A gift of $420 enables the treatment of an average<br />

household in Kiribati, Samoa or the Solomon<br />

Islands.<br />

News<br />

Now<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

design tiny house after castle<br />

DESIGN: The Chapman Castle is an eco-friendly house.<br />

With modern LED technology,<br />

panel lights are cheaper than<br />

installing windows or skylights.<br />

The heat lost through the windows<br />

costs more than running<br />

LED lights, Dennis said. As both<br />

father and son confessed, the tiny<br />

house is an experiment. Alan<br />

plans to move in to the house<br />

once it is completed in March<br />

and live there for a year.<br />

“The experiments we’re doing<br />

here is to prove what’s possible.<br />

Maybe it’s not that cost effective<br />

at the moment, but it will be in<br />

the future,” Dennis said.<br />

The roof is made of foam steel,<br />

which is commonly used in large<br />

commercial buildings like supermarkets,<br />

not homes.<br />

“It has an advantage, it gives<br />

a relatively simple structure to<br />

build and gives really good insulation,”<br />

Dennis said.<br />

“It does have some downsides<br />

we’ve found. It costs somewhat<br />

more than what we expected and<br />

we’re not sure why that was, so<br />

we’re dreaming up new methods<br />

at the moment.”<br />

The house is also movable. After<br />

a year of living and learning<br />

about the tiny house, Alan says<br />

it will be lifted up and moved<br />

to another location – likely as a<br />

family bach.<br />

Alan hopes he can one day sell<br />

the technologies used in the tiny<br />

house through Darc Technologies.<br />

“It’s just ways of making houses<br />

that are better insulated, have<br />

more exposed thermal mass<br />

inside so they regulate their<br />

temperature passively a lot better<br />

and making them as off grid as<br />

possible,” Alan said.<br />

Because it is an ongoing<br />

experiment, the cost of the<br />

tiny house is still not clear,<br />

he said. Other than the<br />

technological advances, the<br />

house is also an artwork.<br />

“That represents one of the<br />

family friends wanting to make<br />

an art piece out of it. He’s built<br />

it looking like native bush to<br />

portray that it’s low impact for<br />

the environment,” Alan said.<br />

He says the family has had<br />

both positive and negative<br />

comments about the looks of the<br />

tiny house.<br />

“Some people love the idea of<br />

having a tiny wee house you can<br />

pick up and move in a container<br />

truck.”<br />

INNOVATIVE: Technologies from the Chapman Castle are being<br />

experimented in the tiny house in Tai Tapu.<br />

Skin problem? No problem!<br />

Join us for our skin fit challenge with our<br />

brand new skincare line Dermaviduals,<br />

the future of skincare has arrived.<br />

A modern, holistic approach to skincare<br />

Bloom Boutique Medispa owner Ashlley<br />

McIntosh is excited to announce a new<br />

direction. After three years in Darfield<br />

growing to a staff of three including<br />

herself, she decided to revamp her business<br />

model based on careful research and a<br />

more considered way to help her clients.<br />

“I’ve just spent the last year studying and<br />

re-training on how to care and rejuvenate<br />

skin in a completely different way than<br />

how I was originally taught, which<br />

focussed on ingredients such as acids and<br />

peels.”<br />

Ashlley says that by going back to<br />

science to study the skin, how it functions<br />

and its structure, she soon discovered a<br />

better option that was more supportive.<br />

Corneotherapy is a remedial skin<br />

treatment methodology, which aims to<br />

keep the skin intact and build it up without<br />

disrupting the barrier function.<br />

With this new information in mind,<br />

Ashlley introduced a new German<br />

skincare range called dermaviduals®,<br />

developed specifically for this style of skin<br />

care and treatment. She is fully trained<br />

and qualified in the use of this product<br />

to custom-make creams, cleansers and<br />

serums to suit individual requirements.<br />

“I can now customise every product to<br />

suit individuals on the day. Dermaviduals<br />

is a range of products that support the<br />

barrier function of the skin with no<br />

disruption and has an amazing delivery<br />

system without disturbing that function.”<br />

Taking a holistic approach to her work<br />

means not only looking on the outside<br />

but also the inside. Ashlley now offers<br />

one-hour consultations with the client to<br />

discuss any diet, lifestyle, or health issues<br />

and work out the best skin care needs on<br />

the day, plus any future treatments. The<br />

consultation includes a treatment and<br />

home care plan that the client can take<br />

away.<br />

To complement her new<br />

style of business, Ashlley<br />

has added Beauty Chef,<br />

a certified organic and<br />

nutrient-dense range of<br />

inner beauty products<br />

that support the gut,<br />

body and skin.<br />

Ashlley, Brittany and Anna<br />

look forward to meeting you soon to<br />

discuss your skin care needs.<br />

Investigation<br />

into<br />

dumped mail<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

ABOUT 100 pieces of mail have<br />

been found dumped in Rolleston.<br />

The mail was found on Elizabeth<br />

St on January 27.<br />

A spokeswoman for New Zealand<br />

Post says it is working with police<br />

and investigating the find.<br />

NZ Post said last week that it had<br />

collected the mail and would deliver<br />

them.<br />

“We apologise for this delay and<br />

any distress this may have caused,”<br />

the spokeswoman said.<br />

NZ Post was alerted to the public<br />

on social media by a woman who<br />

found the mail on Elizabeth St.<br />

Under the Postal Services Act<br />

1998, people who wilfully open mail<br />

not addressed to them can face up to<br />

six months in prison or a fine of up<br />

to $5000.<br />

Your Local Views<br />

FINAL WEEK!<br />

Margaret Holding<br />

responds to last<br />

week’s <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

article about the<br />

planned skate park in<br />

West Melton<br />

AS A long-time resident<br />

of West Melton and<br />

having lived in both<br />

Gainsborough and<br />

Preston Downs until<br />

recently, it amazes me how<br />

narrow-minded people are<br />

regarding not only change,<br />

but also forethought<br />

regarding the skate park.<br />

If noise could be a<br />

problem, then Westview<br />

Cres would not be a good<br />

site.<br />

Brinsworth Reserve<br />

is on a corner and has a<br />

walkway through it.<br />

Therefore, the logical<br />

place seems to be Retford<br />

Common. The houses<br />

surrounding it being far<br />

enough away for noise and<br />

it would bring this huge<br />

empty space alive with<br />

activity and children’s<br />

laughter.<br />

The domain is<br />

the worst place suggested,<br />

especially for children.<br />

Skateboarders do not<br />

travel by car but by<br />

skateboards.<br />

I think maybe Bruce<br />

Russell’s comment that<br />

“the domain is the only<br />

logical place” does not<br />

consider children’s safety.<br />

Crossing the main<br />

highway is a nightmare<br />

anyway without adding<br />

more pressure on it.<br />

It is possible that some<br />

children will come from<br />

Rolleston, but their<br />

parents will have to bring<br />

them so limiting the<br />

numbers.<br />

Whereas, why not<br />

cater for the West Melton<br />

children and have it within<br />

skating distance of the two<br />

biggest subdivisions with<br />

no major road to contend<br />

with and a medical centre<br />

on the same side of the<br />

highway?<br />

Backyard Critters<br />

Lacewing predator<br />

IN THE August 15 issue<br />

of <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong>, I wrote<br />

an article on the aphid<br />

predator Tasmanian<br />

lacewing (Micromus<br />

tasmaniae). Another<br />

predatory species found<br />

in my garden at Lincoln<br />

is the Australian variable<br />

lacewing (Drepanacra<br />

binocula).<br />

Although the two species<br />

are very similar in size,<br />

the variable lacewing adult<br />

has unsymmetrical, pointy<br />

forewings compared to the<br />

Tasmanian lacewing.<br />

However, the variable<br />

lacewing larvae are much<br />

broader than their cousins<br />

and they are found on<br />

leaves containing colonies<br />

of their prey including<br />

aphids, white fly and<br />

psyllids.<br />

As many as 182 eggs can<br />

be laid by females, near<br />

prey, either on leaves or<br />

on long stalks. The jaws of<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 column<br />

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

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

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

PREDATOR: Female Australian variable lacewings<br />

(Drepanacra binocula) can lay 182 eggs.<br />

adults are used for holding<br />

onto and chewing prey,<br />

whereas the jaws of larvae<br />

are hollow and are used to<br />

suck up the body contents<br />

of the prey.<br />

The final larval stage<br />

forms a loose cocoon<br />

in a sheltered space and<br />

then pupates in a smaller<br />

cocoon inside the other.<br />

Lacewing larvae have<br />

natural enemies, including<br />

a small, 2.5mm long<br />

parasitic wasp that injects<br />

an egg inside the lacewing<br />

which develops and<br />

eventually kills its host.<br />

Surfer Lui comes to the rescue<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

WHEN LUI Arnold went for a<br />

surf during the school holidays<br />

he never thought he would<br />

end up saving two men from<br />

drowning.<br />

THe 15-year-old Lincoln High<br />

School student was about to<br />

catch a wave at Sumner when he<br />

heard screams for help.<br />

“I started paddling towards<br />

the sound, I had to paddle probably<br />

500m. When I got closer to<br />

them, I could kind of see their<br />

heads bobbing in and out of the<br />

water,’’ he said.<br />

It took Lui 10 to 15min in the<br />

treacherous sea to get to them.<br />

Another surfer who also came<br />

to help paddled to the swimmers<br />

and they threw the pair their<br />

boards.<br />

“They were very grateful and<br />

apologetic, they just said thanks<br />

heaps. Once we got there they<br />

were pretty out of breath, they<br />

were really gasping and they<br />

seemed quite panicked.”<br />

Lui and the other surfer did<br />

their best to swim out of the rip<br />

while the two swimmers used their<br />

boards to paddle back to the beach.<br />

“It was really tough swimming<br />

out there, it was quite rough, it<br />

was pretty mellow out towards<br />

the beach, but it got really<br />

choppy towards the rip current.”<br />

Lui said the rip had taken the<br />

two men a long way out. Because<br />

of the rough water they could<br />

not even see the beach. “It was<br />

quite scary at times, we were so<br />

isolated.”<br />

Lui managed to help get the<br />

swimmers back on to the beach<br />

within 10min thanks to the help<br />

of his former surfing instructor<br />

Aaron Lock who arrived on to<br />

the scene.<br />

After helping get the men to<br />

the beach, Lui headed back out<br />

into the water.<br />

“I didn’t really think much<br />

about it at the time, I just went<br />

back out there and started surfing<br />

again.”<br />

Mr Lock was in-between<br />

surf lessons when he heard the<br />

screams for help.<br />

“By the time my other instructor<br />

Oliver and I had got<br />

out there, Lui and this other<br />

surfer had given them their<br />

boards, but their boards were<br />

too small so we got them on to<br />

our longboards and paddled<br />

them ashore.”<br />

Mr Lock said the two men<br />

were lucky to be alive.<br />

“They were in serious trouble,<br />

they were starting to take on a<br />

lot of water.”<br />

The two swimmers were given<br />

the all clear after being assessed<br />

by a surf lifesaver.<br />

Naturists, firefighters<br />

celebrate volleyball<br />

anniversary event<br />

THE PINEGLADES Naturist Club<br />

hosted the 40th annual volleyball<br />

match between the club and<br />

firefighters on Saturday.<br />

The event – known as the Whittington<br />

Cup – has often been held<br />

at the club grounds at Brookside<br />

Rd on Waitangi Day.<br />

However, as this was seen as<br />

a special anniversary, Fire and<br />

Emergency NZ suggested that<br />

this year it be held on Saturday to<br />

enable families to enjoy a catered<br />

dinner and band.<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton unveiled<br />

a new umpire’s chair to commemorate<br />

40 years of the event. He<br />

also took part, playing for the<br />

firefighters.<br />

Prior to the challenge, a number<br />

of people participated in a series<br />

of fun games testing skills such as<br />

rolling out hoses, catching eggs<br />

and throwing tennis balls into<br />

strategically placed buckets.<br />

The Pineglades naturists won the<br />

title this year, defending last year’s<br />

crown.<br />

Shrek takes over Kirwee<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

BROCK COTTRELL is not your<br />

ordinary teenager.<br />

The 13-year-old of Rolleston is<br />

the district’s very own grumpy<br />

ogre, Shrek.<br />

He’s part of the Kirwee Players,<br />

who will perform Shrek Jr in<br />

April.<br />

Rehearsals for the show started<br />

on January 27, involving 40 children<br />

aged eight to 16.<br />

Brock says it is “nerve-racking”<br />

to play the main character of the<br />

show.<br />

“When I first found out, I was a<br />

bit overwhelmed, but I’m getting<br />

comfortable with the idea. I’ve<br />

been practicing, getting to know<br />

the part.”<br />

The story of the show will be<br />

similar to the film Shrek.<br />

Said Shrek Jr production manager<br />

Courtney Hyde: “It follows<br />

the story of Shrek, a grumpy<br />

ogre, who just wants to be left<br />

alone in his swamp and his trusty<br />

stead, the hilarious Donkey.”<br />

“They are tasked with finding<br />

and rescuing Princess Fiona and<br />

bringing her back to marry the<br />

very short and irritating Lord<br />

Farquaad. During the rescue<br />

Shrek and Princess Fiona fall in<br />

love,” Ms Hyde said.<br />

Brock says he liked that a<br />

grumpy ogre could have a big life.<br />

LEAD: Liam Morris, Lara Chiswell and Brock Cotterell will star<br />

in the Kirwee Players show, Shrek Jr.<br />

He’s also watched the movie.<br />

“I first watched it when I was<br />

nine and then I re-watched it<br />

when I was older and realised all<br />

the underlying adult jokes in it,”<br />

he said.<br />

Brock hasn’t told too many<br />

people about his new role yet.<br />

“When they rang to tell me<br />

what part I had gotten, mum was<br />

really excited. I probably was<br />

pretty calm on the outside but<br />

inside I was super excited and<br />

happy that I had got the lead.”<br />

•Shrek Jr will be at the<br />

Kirwee Community Hall on<br />

April 12,13 and 14. Ticket<br />

announcements are on the<br />

Facebook page, Kirwee<br />

Players.<br />

A POTENTIAL solution to curb<br />

feral and stray cats will be put to<br />

the district council next month.<br />

Springfield township<br />

committee secretary Sean Ellis<br />

is calling for a cat protection<br />

programme to reduce stray cats<br />

across the district, and says he<br />

has backing from cat rescuers.<br />

He will present the proposal<br />

to the district council’s next<br />

meeting, on March 13.<br />

But before stray cats can<br />

be controlled, Mr Ellis says<br />

domesticated must be micro<br />

chipped.<br />

“We also need a cat drop off<br />

centre, a place where stray and<br />

feral cats once trapped can be<br />

taken and assessed . . . microchipped,<br />

de-sexed and re-homed,<br />

if at all possible,” Mr Ellis said.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> reported last<br />

month that Mr Ellis called for<br />

the district council to be a leader<br />

in the predator free movement.<br />

Following the article, Mr Ellis<br />

said he received threatening<br />

phone calls, but says they weren’t<br />

serious and doesn’t want it to<br />

distract people from the subject<br />

Local<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

Solution for<br />

stray cat issues<br />

of controlling cats.<br />

“It’s a really emotional thing<br />

and I want to keep the emotion<br />

out of it,” he said.<br />

Feral cats posed a danger to<br />

native bird life, Mr Ellis said.<br />

“Just think about it, if it was a<br />

dog left roaming about killing<br />

everything smaller than itself,<br />

how long would it be before we<br />

acted?”<br />

The district council is<br />

currently working on a report<br />

on dealing with predator cats,<br />

which is due next month.<br />

A cat rescuer in the district,<br />

who did not want to named in<br />

fear of receiving threats, says she<br />

supports Mr Ellis’ proposal.<br />

“Most people have cats or<br />

like cats. It’s about making sure<br />

every cat in <strong>Selwyn</strong> has someone<br />

responsible for it,” the woman<br />

said. “If it’s a stray cat it’s about<br />

getting it a home. Get someone<br />

who’s responsible for it, make<br />

sure it’s de-sexed.”<br />

She said controlling cats is an<br />

emotional subject.<br />

“People love cats or hate cats.<br />

It gets everybody fired up,” the<br />

woman said.<br />

My uncle was a policeman in<br />

Oamaru and just talking to him<br />

and looking at career options,<br />

I decided to join the police. I<br />

worked full time on dairy farms<br />

for about 18 months before I was<br />

accepted into the police at 20.<br />

What were some of the<br />

notable cases that you worked<br />

on?<br />

Kirsty Bentley was the last one<br />

I worked on. That’s still in the<br />

newspapers. It’s a cold case now. I<br />

was brought in after her body was<br />

found up in the Rakaia Gorge. I<br />

was brought into review that part<br />

of the investigation, which meant<br />

that I lived in Methven for about<br />

two months.<br />

Was it a difficult time with the<br />

attention on the case?<br />

It was intense, but it was also<br />

disappointing that we couldn’t<br />

resolve that for the family. About<br />

a year or so before that I was<br />

involved in the [Marlborough]<br />

Sounds homicides as well and I<br />

lived in Blenheim for six months<br />

and hardly got a day off. That’s<br />

still controversial and still people<br />

ask me about that. It never leaves<br />

you, even though you left the<br />

police in 1999. People still want<br />

to know about both those cases<br />

because there was a lot of public<br />

interest in them.<br />

Wednesday <strong>February</strong> 6 <strong>2019</strong> 17<br />

– life isn’t quiet for former cop<br />

Do you believe justice was<br />

served in the Sounds murders?<br />

Yeah I do, no doubt at all.<br />

I’ve heard all the theories, I’ve<br />

heard everything. We lived and<br />

breathed that [investigation] for<br />

six months, it was a huge amount<br />

of time and in those six months I<br />

think I got two or three weekends<br />

off. We were working 14-15 hours<br />

a day. So if anyone thinks there<br />

wasn’t a lot of work put into that<br />

they’re very wrong.<br />

Did you enjoy police work?<br />

Of course. You’ve got to be<br />

extremely dedicated and working<br />

on an inquiry, whether it would<br />

be Blenheim or Ashburton, it<br />

takes you away from your home<br />

and your family. I didn’t have<br />

children at that stage, but I was<br />

working with guys that did. It’s<br />

hell of a hard on them and I don’t<br />

think people realise that.<br />

Why did you leave the police?<br />

In 16 years I saw a lot of things<br />

and I guess that while I was<br />

still young enough, I thought I<br />

had done a lot in the police and<br />

I felt it was time for a change<br />

in scenery so I ended up being<br />

a publican. I had the Madeira<br />

Hotel in Akaroa for a couple of<br />

years.<br />

So you became a publican,<br />

that’s a bit of a change isn’t it?<br />

HIGH PROFILE: Former detective Simon Moore worked on cases such as the Marlborough<br />

Sounds murders of Ben Smart and Olivia Hope, and the murder of Ashburton schoolgirl Kirsty<br />

Bentley.<br />

The thing about the police is<br />

that it can become very negative.<br />

A lot of the time you’re dealing<br />

with the very negative side of society<br />

and you’re seeing tragedies.<br />

You’re having to tell people that<br />

their loved ones have been killed<br />

and over 16 years that can take its<br />

toll. People that have been in the<br />

police for 30-40 years, well they<br />

have got my admiration. They<br />

deserve a medal. The thing about<br />

becoming a publican is that I saw<br />

a slightly different side to people.<br />

Some good and some bad, but the<br />

police career gives you a pretty<br />

good grounding to deal with people.<br />

You get to know a lot about<br />

people in the police. It gives you a<br />

really good grounding to understand<br />

how people work and those<br />

connections you make in the police<br />

are lifelong connections. My<br />

business partner [at e-Migration]<br />

is an ex-police officer. Immigration<br />

officers are ex-police officers,<br />

you bump into them all the time<br />

and they all remember you.<br />

What were some highlights of<br />

being a publican in Akaroa?<br />

I knew what to expect from<br />

people who couldn’t handle their<br />

alcohol because I’ve dealt with<br />

that plenty of times. But Akaroa<br />

itself was a fantastic place to live.<br />

A small population of locals, but<br />

a huge population of Cantabrians<br />

with holiday homes. So on the<br />

weekends the place would just<br />

swell with people from Christchurch<br />

and when they went away it<br />

was just your local people. I could<br />

still be living there, but I was<br />

made an offer for the pub and<br />

I couldn’t refuse it. It’s bloody<br />

hard work being a publican.<br />

Particularly in a small town that<br />

increases five times in size in the<br />

weekends. Trying to find staff,<br />

trying to please everybody and<br />

keep within the law making sure<br />

people aren’t drink driving, you<br />

take that responsibility quite<br />

heavily. As soon as I got there I<br />

bought a courtesy van so that we<br />

could get people home safely. To<br />

be honest at the start there was a<br />

bit of a sideways look from those<br />

people who were perhaps a little<br />

wayward of the law. But when<br />

they found out I was there as a<br />

publican and not a policeman it<br />

was all good.<br />

Our People<br />

Moore takes on next challenge<br />

Was it after that you became<br />

an immigration adviser?<br />

After two years of living and<br />

breathing [being a publican]<br />

you need a bit of time out and I<br />

thought I’d have a few months<br />

off. But I got to about six weeks<br />

and I was so bored, I saw an ad in<br />

the paper for what they used to<br />

call an immigration consultant<br />

with a big company. I applied for<br />

it and the guy from Wellington<br />

who interviewed me was an<br />

ex-cop, so I got the job. I started<br />

off as a consultant for them for<br />

about six months and after the<br />

six months we got the business<br />

running so well that they decided<br />

to start a branch, I ran that for<br />

a couple of years and went back<br />

to becoming a publican again in<br />

Hanmer Springs of all places.<br />

Where in New Zealand are<br />

you originally from?<br />

Born and bred in Christchurch.<br />

The suburb I was brought<br />

up was in Bishopdale, went to<br />

Christchurch Boys’ High School.<br />

I lived two years in Timaru after<br />

I left the police. When I came<br />

back from Timaru, I lived in that<br />

Bishopdale area again and then<br />

Templeton in the early 1990s<br />

because I was working in the<br />

Hornby police station as detective.<br />

I threw my name in the hat<br />

for a detective sergeant’s role after<br />

just having moved to Templeton<br />

and I got that role and it was in<br />

New Brighton. I couldn’t turn<br />

the job down because I put my<br />

name in the hat, so I had to commute<br />

backwards and forwards<br />

everyday.<br />

You own a 2010 Ford<br />

Mustang, have you always been<br />

into performance cars?<br />

Yeah I am, I’ve always been a<br />

V8 man really. I’ve always liked<br />

those classic V8s and particularly<br />

Mustang, out of the lot of them.<br />

I was lucky enough to be able to<br />

buy one in 2017. I bought it in<br />

Auckland when I was up there<br />

for a meeting, went and had a<br />

look at one, liked it so much I<br />

bought it and drove it home.<br />

Much to my wife’s – I wouldn’t<br />

say disgust – but surprise.<br />

Tell me a bit about your<br />

family?<br />

I’m still married [to Tina],<br />

some people would say luckily<br />

sometimes, particularly her. Both<br />

of my daughters attend Lincoln<br />

High School, that’s the connection<br />

of the swimming side of<br />

things. Both of them [Sophie and<br />

Holly] swim competitively. I do<br />

OPPOSED:<br />

Simon<br />

Moore<br />

has been<br />

campaigning<br />

against a<br />

proposed<br />

Fulton<br />

Hogan<br />

quarry near<br />

Weedons.<br />

a lot of officiating at swim meets,<br />

I’m a trained official. It’s a very<br />

busy life I have to say.<br />

How did you meet your wife,<br />

Tina?<br />

Oh crikey. It was way back<br />

in the dairy farm days actually.<br />

The farm I used to work on [in<br />

Springston South], her father<br />

managed the place and we sort of<br />

worked together and we knew the<br />

family and it just went on from<br />

there basically.<br />

Did you move to Weedons<br />

recently?<br />

We bought our place in<br />

Weedons just before we moved<br />

back to town from Akaroa in<br />

2001.<br />

What spurred you onto<br />

advocating for something like<br />

the proposed quarry?<br />

I’ve advocated for things all<br />

my life if you look at the police<br />

side of it. The thing that got me<br />

annoyed and concerned is that<br />

when I bought at Weedons, it<br />

was surrounded by farms and<br />

horse training stables. When we<br />

went there we knew we would<br />

get planes going overhead. We<br />

accepted that. We knew Ruapuna<br />

Park was not far away and when<br />

the north east wind is blowing<br />

and they’ve got events there we<br />

can hear them quite clearly. We<br />

knew that when we moved in<br />

there. We’ve got prisons around<br />

us, halfway houses for youth<br />

offenders, we knew all that when<br />

we moved in and we accepted<br />

that. But we never had a quarry.<br />

I never in my wildest dreams<br />

thought that they would contemplate<br />

putting a quarry between<br />

Templeton and Weedons. The<br />

thing that disturbs me the most<br />

is the more I look into this the<br />

more I can see that we are so<br />

far behind the rest of the world.<br />

India and Pakistan, for example,<br />

have 1km setback rules. We don’t<br />

have anything like that.<br />

It’s our<br />

A Month of Sundays<br />

Lakeside Soldiers Memorial<br />

Hall opening<br />

Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall was officially opened on Friday<br />

1 <strong>February</strong>, where over 140 people from Lakeside and the wider<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> district attended. Mayor Sam Broughton, Hon Amy Adams,<br />

Council staff and members of the Lakeside Community Memorial<br />

Hall Committee were also in attendance.<br />

A representative from Te Taumutu Rūnanga performed a blessing<br />

and a local Anglican minister provided a blessing and a prayer.<br />

Construction of the $1.67 million facility began in April 2017 and<br />

was completed in November 2018. The new facility has replaced the<br />

original earthquake-damaged hall, which was demolished several<br />

years ago, with a modern, flexible community space and special<br />

events venue.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>’s first A Month of Sundays event was held last weekend with around 100 residents<br />

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

games and more for free.<br />

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

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

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

Lincoln Library will also be open for all to browse.<br />

Special thanks to Faringdon for their support.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Community Fund round one awarded<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> Community Fund has recognised the work of a variety of groups and organisations within<br />

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

number of these organisations are from the sports, children, events and arts sectors.<br />

Cr Murray Lemon, Chair of the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Community Fund Committee was involved in allocating the fund<br />

for round one.<br />

“There was a diverse range of applications for funding reflecting the range of organisations operating in<br />

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

Applications for round two close Tuesday 30 April.<br />

“We look forward to assessing the innovative requests we are sure to attract.”<br />

To apply visit selwyn.govt.nz/selwyn-community-fund.<br />

New park-and-ride for Rolleston<br />

Residents who have gone past the Council’s Rolleston headquarters<br />

recently will have noticed work being undertaken on the<br />

construction of a new car park and public park-and-ride facility, on<br />

the corner of Norman Kirk Drive and Kidman Street. This work is<br />

part of the extension of the Council car park and both car parks are<br />

expected to be completed in May, depending on the weather.<br />

Council Chief Executive David Ward says the work was set in the<br />

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

reconfiguration of the Council building.<br />

“This is an exciting time for the Council and the district, as these<br />

works are a clear indication of how quickly <strong>Selwyn</strong> is developing,”<br />

Mr Ward says.<br />

The new public park-and-ride car park will provide 79 public car<br />

spaces and six cycle racks. This will allow people to park close<br />

to local bus stops in Kidman Street. It will also extend the parking<br />

capacity for Council staff with 59 additional car spaces and six<br />

motorcycle spaces. The additional car parks will provide extra<br />

parking for residents and visitors which will ease demand.<br />

During construction, there will be some minor traffic disruptions<br />

along Norman Kirk Drive, however there will be temporary traffic<br />

management in place.<br />

Closer to this time, we will provide more public information about<br />

temporary traffic management via Council Call, the Council’s<br />

website and Facebook page.<br />

Fire restrictions in place<br />

Fire and Emergency New Zealand has advised that the <strong>Selwyn</strong> district is now in a<br />

restricted fire season.<br />

Anyone wanting to light a fire outside in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> district will need to obtain a permit from<br />

Fire and Emergency.<br />

Gas or charcoal barbecues can still be used without a permit.<br />

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

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

restrictions,’’ says Fire and Emergency Principal Rural Fire Officer Bruce Janes.<br />

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

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

very quickly.<br />

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

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

We’re encouraging households on Council water supplies to avoid watering lawns and gardens<br />

between 6–9am and 4–9pm.<br />

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

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

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

and water has the best opportunity to soak into the ground.<br />

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

conditions first. Watering during the daytime is fine on cooler overcast or wet days. Watering<br />

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

water will evaporate.<br />

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

throughout summer. If demand for water increases, formal water restrictions may be introduced.<br />

You can check water restrictions online at selwyn.govt.nz<br />

TALENT: Max Sargeant is starting to push for national<br />

Promising softballer<br />

wants to take<br />

his skills the max<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

MAX SARGEANT is turning<br />

the skills he learnt in his<br />

backyard into a promising<br />

softball career.<br />

The 14-year-old Lincoln High<br />

School student was part of the<br />

Canterbury under-15 infield<br />

which went undefeated at the<br />

national championships.<br />

He was named in the Rest<br />

of New Zealand tournament<br />

team, and will also trial for the<br />

development Black Sox later in<br />

the summer, which could lead to<br />

a tour of Australia this year.<br />

Max can play any infield<br />

position but prefers second base<br />

or short stop.<br />

“I like how you get a lot of balls<br />

coming your way and you’re<br />

always in the action,” he said.<br />

Max has been playing softball<br />

since he was five and has<br />

practiced his technique in<br />

the backyard with his dad<br />

Peter.<br />

Max has a family pedigree,<br />

with his uncle Michael Sands<br />

being a former Black Sox player<br />

in the early 2000s.<br />

Max also plays premier<br />

reserves, under-23s and under-<br />

18s for Halswell, meaning he<br />

often has three games a week.<br />

“It’s playing against big people<br />

which has been difficult, but<br />

it’s been a learning year and,<br />

hopefully, I can put those skills<br />

into my 18s game.<br />

“I’d like to make the<br />

Canterbury under-18s and keep<br />

moving up to national squads.”<br />

Max said he would love to<br />

emulate his uncle and become a<br />

second generation Black Sox.<br />

He also wants to play at college<br />

level overseas.<br />

But for now, Max is just<br />

motivated to get better.<br />

Two national titles<br />

for West Melton<br />

show jumper<br />

WEST MELTON’S Tegan<br />

Fitzsimon won two major titles<br />

on the final day of the national<br />

show jumping championships at<br />

McLeans Island on Sunday.<br />

Her horse Windermere<br />

Cappuccino added a<br />

national title to his already<br />

comprehensive CV when he<br />

triumphed in the feature event<br />

of the three-day competition at<br />

the National Equestrian Centre.<br />

The final two rounds of the<br />

national grand prix was watched<br />

by a good-sized crowd, which<br />

were treated to a nail-biting<br />

finish that came down to the last<br />

fence.<br />

Tegan and Windermere<br />

Cappuccino came into the<br />

final round just 0.64sec behind<br />

Lincoln’s Steffi Whittaker on<br />

Eros K.<br />

Both horses jumped clear in<br />

the first speed class on Friday<br />

and then led again in the first<br />

round of the grand prix.<br />

It all came down to the final<br />

round at the Gerit Becker<br />

designed course and it didn’t<br />

look like it was going to be<br />

Fitzsimon’s day when Vollie<br />

took a pole.<br />

“He just felt like he was<br />

running out of fuel towards<br />

the end. It was really hot and<br />

he hasn’t done a lot of jumping<br />

since he won the World Cup<br />

final,” she said.<br />

Whittaker and Eros K had<br />

been looking good all show, but<br />

the big chestnut stallion made<br />

one mistake mid-way through<br />

the round, and then knocked<br />

the last fence down as well, to<br />

give the win to Fitzsimon and<br />

Windermere Cappuccino.<br />

“I didn’t really know where<br />

I was going to be with the<br />

horse and I didn’t even think<br />

I would be able to start in this<br />

competition,” she said.<br />

“I am just grateful that<br />

I am here. (Windermere<br />

Cappuccino) has given me<br />

everything today and he has<br />

come out on top.<br />

“He really does deserve this<br />

title. I am so pleased that his<br />

name is now on the Mary Dalley<br />

Memorial Trophy.”<br />

She also admitted to a few<br />

tears, and predicted there were<br />

many more to come as it looks<br />

like he will be sold to interests in<br />

the United States.<br />

Fitzsimon also finished third<br />

in the class with her other horse<br />

Double J Monarch.<br />

This came on top of another<br />

great win in the national 1.30m<br />

horse championship on her<br />

faithful campaigner, Alacazam<br />

MH.<br />

Lincoln’s Sophie Geddes also<br />

had a thrilling result in the<br />

national pony championship,<br />

taking the win and second<br />

with her ponies Benrose<br />

Silver Shadow and Te Ngaio<br />

Raggamuffin respectively.<br />

“I have never been first and<br />

second before, so it is a pretty<br />

cool feeling,” she said.<br />

“I have never won a national<br />

title either though.”<br />

The 15-year-old has had<br />

Benrose Silver Shadow for<br />

just over a year and Te Ngaio<br />

Raggamuffin for two years.

Big wins for Leeston-Southbridge, Weedons<br />

LEESTON-Southbridge<br />

maintained their strong grip on<br />

second in the Canterbury country<br />

one-day cricket competition with<br />

a five-wicket win over Kaiapoi at<br />

Leeston Park on Saturday.<br />

After winning the toss and<br />

electing to field, the hosts soon<br />

had Kaiapoi in trouble with Ben<br />

Chamberlain removing the top<br />

three batsman with just 31 runs<br />

on the board.<br />

Partnerships continued to be<br />

hard to build as Ben Donkers<br />

ripped through the middle and<br />

lower order on his way to 4-24<br />

to restrict Kaiapoi to 137 all out<br />

inside 42 overs.<br />

Wayne Bell’s 37 was the only bit<br />

of resistance for the visitors.<br />

Leeston-Southbridge’s run<br />

chase was anchored by an<br />

unbeaten 47 from Tim Gruijters<br />

and handy contributions from<br />

Chamberlain (30) and Rupert<br />

Young (23) as they chased down<br />

the target with 15 overs to spare.<br />

Weedons kept their faint<br />

semi-final hopes alive with<br />

a comfortable 124-run win<br />

over cellar-dwellers Darfield at<br />

Weedons Domain.<br />

A 100-run third wicket<br />

partnership between<br />

wicketkeeper Todd Inness (80)<br />

and Sam Wilson (56) set the tone<br />

for the hosts as they posted 222<br />

for nine from their 45 overs.<br />

Darfield opening quick bowler<br />

Toby Kars picked up 5-40 to<br />

keep his team in the game at the<br />

halfway point.<br />

However, Darfield’s run chase<br />

never gained momentum.<br />

Only four batsmen made it to<br />

double figures as they limped to<br />

98 all out in 25 overs.<br />

Charlie Robson was the pick of<br />

the Weedons bowlers with 4-24<br />

from his seven overs.<br />

Southbrook stay at top spot on<br />

the ladder after a 55-run win over<br />

Sefton at Southbrook Domain.<br />

The home team could thank<br />

a 70-run ninth wicket stand<br />

between Sam Ermerins (30) and<br />

Luan Blom (38 not out) for their<br />

healthy 252 all out. The required<br />

rate of more than five runs an<br />

over proved too much for Sefton<br />

as they could only manage 197/7<br />

in reply, in spite of a gritty 78<br />

from opener Tim Harrison.<br />

Oxford held their nerve to<br />

chase down Cheviot’s target of<br />

191 and claim victory by two<br />

wickets at Cheviot Domain. An<br />

unbeaten 62 from wicketkeeperbatsman<br />

David Fulton proved the<br />

difference.<br />

On Saturday Southbrook<br />

will host Weedons, Sefton will<br />

welcome Cheviot, Leeston-<br />

Southbridge will travel to face<br />

Oxford and Darfield will hit the<br />

road to play Kaiapoi.<br />

Lincoln teen’s volleyball gold<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

LINCOLN HIGH School<br />

volleyballer Ellen Watts<br />

surprised herself by winning a<br />

gold medal at the national<br />

beach championships in<br />

Mt Maunganui.<br />

The 16-year-old won the<br />

under-17 national doubles<br />

title with Kate Allan from St<br />

Andrew’s College.<br />

The pair<br />

were playing<br />

together for<br />

the first time<br />

and represented<br />

Canterbury<br />

at the championships.<br />

They won<br />

Ellen Watts<br />

Wednesday <strong>February</strong> 6 <strong>2019</strong><br />

all seven of<br />

their games<br />

and did not drop a set until the<br />

final.<br />

“It made me so happy to be in<br />

a final and win it because all the<br />

hard work paid off,” Ellen said.<br />

They beat North Harbour in<br />

the final, winning two sets to<br />

one.<br />

“I had no idea what to expect<br />

as it was my first beach volleyball<br />

tournament of any kind.”<br />

Ellen, who lives between<br />

Lincoln and Tai Tapu, said she<br />

and Kate had met before on the<br />

netball court.<br />

“While we knew each other<br />

we’d never played together<br />

so it took a while to get our<br />

combination right and to get our<br />

calls right,” Ellen said.<br />

“I watched the senior As at<br />

school and thought I’d give it a<br />

go.” Previously she has played<br />

netball, tennis and touch rugby<br />

socially.<br />

“It’s harder to run in the sand<br />

and beach (volleyball) is more<br />

about smart play rather than<br />

hitting the hall hard like in<br />

indoor.”<br />

Ellen will start her second<br />

season with the Lincoln High<br />

School senior A indoor volleyball<br />

team, where she is a pass/hitter.<br />

“I’ve certainly improved in<br />

both areas but winning a beach<br />

title has proved to myself that I<br />

can do it and I just have to keep<br />

working hard.”<br />

Ellen made the South Island<br />

age-group indoor volleyball<br />

team last season and is eager to<br />

make the New Zealand squads<br />

for both indoor and beach over<br />

the next 12 months.<br />

95 Gasson St<br />

Glover wants to<br />

drive out of TQ class<br />

on a winning note<br />

• By Allan Batt<br />

SPEEDWAY HAS been a way<br />

of life for 30-year-old Rollestonbased<br />

racer Kyle Glover.<br />

And while he sees this<br />

weekend’s New Zealand TQ<br />

championship at Ruapuna as<br />

one of the last opportunities to<br />

earn a podium spot in the class at<br />

national level, he is sure he will be<br />

around the tracks for many years<br />

to come.<br />

“I’m in my 14th season of<br />

racing and we’ve purchased an<br />

Esslinger-powered midget, but<br />

while I plan on hanging onto the<br />

T.Q for a while, the focus will<br />

move up to the bigger class in<br />

time,” he said.<br />

Glover has been a dominant<br />

force on the South Island scene<br />

in recent years, finishing second<br />

in last year’s New Zealand TQ<br />

grand prix and being a former<br />

South Island champion. But he<br />

says that it’s likely to be the last<br />

TQ nationals he contests at his<br />

home track, and wants to make it<br />

a memorable one.<br />

“It’s going to be a really tough<br />

weekend of racing. With 45<br />

entries, including a bunch from<br />

the North Island, it will be a<br />

torrid battle with just 24 cars<br />

facing the starter for the 25-lap<br />

final. I’m happy with how I’ve<br />

been going this season and am<br />

SELWYN TIMES<br />

ready for this.” The defending<br />

champion is Prebbleton’s Jeremy<br />

Webb who has struck form at the<br />

right time of the season, winning<br />

the two most recent TQ features<br />

at Ruapuna. Glover thinks that<br />

Webb is just one of a number of<br />

genuine contenders.<br />

“The Bakers from Auckland are<br />

going to be tough with Lawrence<br />

and his two sons Ryan and Scott<br />

all highly-rated drivers. Duane<br />

Todd from Napier is a former<br />

national champion, Ryan Barry<br />

from Auckland is always at the<br />

pointy part of the finishing line,<br />

and locally, Liam McCoubrey is<br />

always a tough opponent and he’s<br />

had a podium at the nationals to<br />

back that up.”<br />

Glover is adamant lapped<br />

traffic will be a factor in the event<br />

and that quick decisions will be<br />

vital for success.<br />

“The traffic will be thick<br />

for at least the first half of the<br />

race. An incorrect line or snap<br />

decision could impact very<br />

quickly on drivers’ chances. It<br />

will be as much about drivers’<br />

concentration as it will be about<br />

car performance.”<br />

He is also wary of a challenge<br />

from two of Christchurch’s<br />

top sprintcar drivers, Matt<br />

Leversedge and Jamie Duff.<br />

Motoring<br />

Versatility key to Sportage’s success<br />

ONE OF MY work colleagues<br />

has a reasonably new Kia<br />

Sportage sport utility vehicle.<br />

I’ve often talked to her about<br />

her choice, she says it suits her<br />

busy lifestyle with a youngster in<br />

tow, as well as recreational interests.<br />

It’s also a nice driving experience,<br />

the high, upright seating<br />

position offers a commanding<br />

view and everything is laid out<br />

internally for ease of use.<br />

There are many reasons why<br />

the Sportage has been a highselling<br />

SUV in this country, it<br />

appeals to families who want the<br />

practicality of a wagon without it<br />

being too big.<br />

The Sportage sits squarely in<br />

the mid-size SUV bracket, think<br />

Toyota RAV4 or Honda CRV.<br />

Sure, there are other SUVs in the<br />

Kia stable such as Sorento and<br />

Carnival, however, the Sportage<br />

is there for those who don’t need<br />

huge. Kia Motors has a new<br />

Sportage for <strong>2019</strong>. Well, it’s pretty<br />

much a facelift really, there’s new<br />

cosmetic detailing both internally<br />

and externally and the fitment of<br />

additional equipment, much of it<br />

unseen for safety purposes.<br />

Beneath, not a lot has changed<br />

mechanically, the petrol and<br />

diesel engine options are all a<br />

carryover. However, there has<br />

been considerable suspension<br />

development work carried out<br />

to suit down under conditions;<br />

KIA SPORTAGE: Freshened up with a facelift.<br />

effectively it means there’s a<br />

choice of a soft setting in some<br />

models, while a new GT Line<br />

incorporates spring and damper<br />

rates biased towards sporty. There<br />

are two petrol powertrain options<br />

in Sportage, a 2-litre unit and a<br />

2.4-litre unit, while a 2-litre diesel<br />

rounds out the range, bearing in<br />

mind there is also the option of<br />

four-wheel-drive in some variants.<br />

The evaluation car was a new<br />

front-drive-only GT Line Urban<br />

model with the entry-level 2-litre<br />

petrol power plant. The engine is<br />

a beauty in terms of smoothness<br />

and refinement, and it is channelled<br />

through a paddle-shift<br />

six-speed automatic transmission,<br />

the whole driveline reeks of<br />

sophistication.<br />

The engine is rated by Kia at<br />

114kW and 192Nm.<br />

Even though it loses the strong<br />

torque spread of its 2.4-litre stablemate,<br />

the 1999cc unit has solid<br />

bottom end strength realised<br />

at 4000rpm. As a consequence,<br />

mid-range acceleration is ushered<br />

in respectably, and with the<br />

lively behaviour common with<br />

twin-camshaft engines it also<br />

likes to have the revs up offering<br />

a vibrant response to accelerator<br />

request, and quick downshifts<br />

through the transmission.<br />

There are three driverselectable<br />

engine management<br />

protocols in the Sportage. I used<br />

normal mostly, but there are eco<br />

and sport settings which, quite<br />

obviously, refer to economical<br />

engine management or for more<br />

Motoring<br />

Ross Kiddie<br />

response when sport mode is<br />

selected.<br />

What I find most surprising<br />

about the modern SUV is<br />

the way they handle, they have<br />

become almost car-like in the<br />

way they have been engineered to<br />

tackle a corner. A lot of that has<br />

to do with the development work<br />

I mentioned in my introduction,<br />

there is a definite firmness<br />

underneath, but it doesn’t greatly<br />

affect ride comfort.<br />

The big benefit is the way the<br />

Sportage steers and behaves in a<br />

corner, even without four-wheeldrive<br />

the suspension is a complex<br />

fully independent type and that<br />

allows good freedom of movement<br />

and strong body balance.<br />

In terms of specification, the<br />

Sportage GT Line Urban wants<br />

for little. At $45,990 it gets all<br />

of Kia’s high-tech safety kit and<br />

plenty for comfort and convenience,<br />

including for <strong>2019</strong> new 19in<br />

wheels, touch screen in-cabin<br />

display, panoramic sun roof and<br />

LED lighting network. As an<br />

aside, the Sportage range starts at<br />

• Price – Kia Sportage GT<br />

Urban, $45,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4495mm; width, 1855mm;<br />

height, 1655mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

1999cc, 114kW, 192Nm, sixspeed<br />

automatic.<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 9.1sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 8.2l/100km<br />

just $35,990 which, by my way of<br />

thinking, is fabulous value.<br />

There’s been a lot of fresh and<br />

interesting product coming out of<br />

the Kia factories in recent years.<br />

The company has a lot of appealing<br />

product which is very suitable<br />

for New Zealand roads and drivers.<br />

And, of course, with the Niro<br />

range there are also hybrids and<br />

electric vehicles which are much<br />

the talking point today.<br />

However, the Sportage is there<br />

for those who like traditional. I’m<br />

sure those who choose the midsize<br />

crossover will, just like my<br />

colleague, find it a great choice.

Check before you light<br />

Select a sheltered site at least 10 to 30<br />

metres from, and downwind of shelter belts,<br />

hedges, fences, buildings, neighbouring<br />

properties or anything else that could catch<br />

alight and burn. Build your bonfire several<br />

days before you light it. Cover it, and leave<br />

it to dry out.<br />

You may want to let your neighbours<br />

know the date and time of your fire as a<br />

courtesy to reduce unnecessary emergency<br />

calls to Fire and Emergency.<br />

Dampen down a 3-metre area around<br />

the bonfire, to prevent any unplanned fires.<br />

Have a hose, water sprayer, a shovel and dirt<br />

or a mechanical digger within easy reach in<br />

case the fire gets out of control.<br />

At least one person equipped with a<br />

shovel must monitor the fire at all times and<br />

include a ‘no go’ zone around the bonfire to<br />

keep children and pets safe.<br />

Your fire must be completely extinguished<br />

before leaving the area. Mix up the water<br />

with ashes and embers with a shovel and<br />

repeat these steps until the fire is completely<br />

out.<br />

Remember to keep an eye on your bonfire<br />

for two days after you put it out.<br />

Dial 111 immediately in an emergency.<br />

Anything that could cause loss of life, serious<br />

injury or loss of property is a fire emergency.<br />

With the dry and hot weather comes<br />

the increased risk of rural fires across the<br />

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

Before you light an outdoor fire, you<br />

need to check the fire season by visiting the<br />

Fire and Emergency New Zealand website<br />

www.checkitsalright.nz as you may need to<br />

apply for a fire permit.<br />

One way rural property owners can<br />

reduce the risk of fire on their properties is<br />

to be very careful using machinery during<br />

an extreme fire danger period as sparks<br />

from vehicles or mowers could easily start<br />

a fire.<br />

It is also a good idea to carry appropriate<br />

fire extinguishers, shovels, or knapsack<br />

sprayers.<br />

If you are going to light a fire and have the<br />

permit if required, check the latest weather<br />

and wind speed and direction. Only light<br />

your fire when there is little or no wind<br />

forecast.<br />

SELWYN TIMES<br />

Make sure you pamper your cauliflower<br />

Cauliflower appreciates<br />

a bit of pampering, and<br />

rewards you with a flower<br />

that has become a true<br />

Kiwi favourite. Diana<br />

Noonan looks into the<br />

classic vege<br />

KIWIS LOVE ’EM<br />

In New Zealand, cauliflower<br />

can sometimes get bad press,<br />

but that’s only because those<br />

who don’t favour the vegetable<br />

are so vocal in their dislike for<br />

it. In fact, Kiwis can’t think<br />

too badly of caulis because,<br />

along with broccoli, we each<br />

consume around 4.43kg a year<br />

of the brassica. New Zealand<br />

grows close to 49,000 tonnes of<br />

broccoli and cauli a year (that’s<br />

a lot of cauliflower cheese!), and<br />

pay around $4/kg for the curds<br />

at the supermarket. Commercial<br />

cauliflower growing takes place<br />

mainly in mid-North Island<br />

regions with warmer climatic<br />

conditions that allow for yearround<br />

production. Because<br />

caulis react badly to extreme<br />

weather events, prices for the<br />

vegetable can skyrocket with<br />

little warning.<br />

COLOURFUL CAULIS<br />

It’s tempting to think that<br />

green, orange and purple<br />

Once thought of as winter-only produce, modern varieties of<br />

cauliflower ensure we can now enjoy this versatile vegetable<br />

throughout the year, and in a variety of colours.<br />

caulis are the result of genetic<br />

modification, but plant breeders<br />

assure us the rainbow-coloured<br />

curds are the product of<br />

selective breeding. Scientists<br />

are also claiming that coloured<br />

caulis are better for us than<br />

white varieties. The orange<br />

variety is said to have 25 times<br />

the concentration of beta<br />

carotene than white varieties,<br />

while purple curds contain<br />

anthocyanin that may help<br />

prevent heart disease.<br />

WHAT’S IN A NAME?<br />

Cauliflower and its cousin,<br />

broccoli, have a very close<br />

connection. Their botanical<br />

variety is botrytis which,<br />

although sounding like<br />

something you wouldn’t want<br />

to find in your greenhouse,<br />

actually comes from a Greek<br />

word that means ‘cluster’, as<br />

in a bunch of grapes. Cauli<br />

comes from caulis (the Latin<br />

word for cabbage) and floris,<br />

meaning flower.<br />

Grow your own caulis<br />

– The 3-Ps of success<br />

PREPARE<br />

Caulis are expensive to buy<br />

so it’s worth putting in all the<br />

effort required to prepare an<br />

excellent bed for them to grow<br />

in. Your garden soil should be<br />

deeply dug (at least a spadeblade<br />

deep), finely worked up,<br />

well draining and in full sun.<br />

Well-rotted animal manure and<br />

as much compost as you can<br />

spare should be added to the<br />

soil, along with a scattering of<br />

dolomite lime to bring the pH<br />

level to between 6.5 and 7.5. If<br />

you are not an organic gardener,<br />

and want to use a garden<br />

fertiliser to increase<br />

soil nutrients, choose one that is<br />

lower in nitrogen. If you don’t,<br />

your caulis will produce leaf at<br />

the expense of curd.<br />

PROTECT<br />

Young cauli seedlings are a<br />

favourite food of slugs and snails.<br />

Protect them with a scattering<br />

of slug bait. Young seedlings are<br />

vulnerable to being disturbed<br />

and dug up by domestic animals<br />

and birds. Cover them with<br />

netting to protect them. By<br />

choosing a fine mesh netting,<br />

you will also have the advantage<br />

of keeping white butterfly off<br />

your plants.<br />

PAMPER<br />

While enjoying good drainage,<br />

the roots of cauliflowers do not<br />

like to dry out completely so keep<br />

soil damp and mulch around the<br />

plants. During the first month of<br />

growth, side-dress the seedlings<br />

with liquid manure, but use more<br />

seaweed than animal manure<br />

in your mix. Seaweed contains<br />

potassium, which encourages<br />

flowering and, after all, your<br />

cauli is just that – a flower.<br />

WHEN TO SOW & GROW<br />

CAULI<br />

If you want to grow your<br />

own cauli from seed, be aware<br />

that it is not always a reliable<br />

germinator so sow a pinch<br />

more seed than you would<br />

with, say, cabbage. It takes<br />

approximately four weeks from<br />

sowing to transplanting time.<br />

In warmer regions, May to<br />

June are the traditional months<br />

for transplanting cauliflower<br />

seedlings into the garden. In<br />

cooler regions, cauli can be<br />

planted throughout spring and<br />

summer but seedlings placed<br />

in the garden in autumn are<br />

unlikely to mature until late<br />

in the following spring.<br />

nigel and lisa welcome customers<br />

to their exciting new premises<br />

Nigel and Lisa Fleck are a local family who have two primary school<br />

aged children at school locally, and an older son who is now working<br />

in the automotive industry in Christchurch. Lisa was born and raised<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong> and Nigel has lived here for over 20 years. “We love living<br />

in <strong>Selwyn</strong>, and think we are very lucky to live in such a vibrant and<br />

growing community,” said Lisa. “Our passion for our business is really<br />

about the people, our incredible staff and our customers. We love that<br />

we have a small enough town that lots of customers feel like friends”.<br />

Nigel and Lisa purchased Jones Road Auto in 2012. It has grown from<br />

2 staff to 14 and now has two branches, Jones Road Auto in Rolleston<br />

and <strong>Selwyn</strong> Auto in Springston. Their core values have always been<br />

conducting themselves with integrity, providing exceptional service<br />

and a high standard of workmanship.<br />

Nigel has over 20 years of mechanical experience and Lisa is a<br />

qualified financial advisor, who previously worked in the banking sector<br />

in both investment and lending capacities. Working together as a team<br />

they bring a great mix of skills, complementing each other perfectly.<br />

“The business has grown massively from what was taken on, that<br />

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

community-focused people and make sure we are continually giving<br />

back to our community.”<br />

taking<br />

the next step<br />

Nigel and Lisa are very excited to take the next step and move<br />

from leasing to owning their own premises. The new premises are<br />

purpose built and twice the size of the current premises.<br />

The couple is proud to employ a great team of experienced,<br />

high performing mechanics. “We love that we have a great work<br />

environment and think that the positivity comes through to our<br />

customers,” said Lisa. “Our office staff give fabulous customer<br />

service and we’re excited to change things up in the new premises<br />

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

to be on hand to answer queries, quote jobs and generally assist<br />

customers on the spot.”<br />

Jones Road Auto is making the most of the opportunity to increase<br />

and upgrade equipment, and also to provide more space and staff<br />

to reduce their waiting lists and create capacity for growth. They<br />

have added an additional four hoists, upgraded some WOF testing<br />

and diagnostic equipment, and also Electric Vehicle charging points<br />

to ready themselves for future technology changes - currently<br />

training their staff to be able to service and repair these vehicles.<br />

They have added an additional WOF bay so that they can get<br />

through those while-you-wait WOFs at twice the speed!<br />

Nigel and Lisa have also added a<br />

dedicated Fleet servicing lane in<br />

response to local demand for more<br />

specialised Fleet servicing. “We are<br />

excited to grow this new part of our business<br />

Nigel and<br />

Lisa Fleck<br />

and have an exciting Fleet offering and dedicated management<br />

system. The growth of business in <strong>Selwyn</strong> has been phenomenal<br />

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

On a customer front Jones Road Auto now have twice as many<br />

carparks, a lovely new waiting room with guest Wi-Fi, a coffee<br />

machine and a comfortable sunny spot to relax, read a magazine<br />

and even recharge your devices!<br />

Nigel and Lisa offer “a huge thank you to our amazing customers<br />

and community whose support has been incredible, right from<br />

when we started with no experience through to this next milestone<br />

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

building!”<br />

Presenting your home for sale?<br />

The presentation of your home<br />

doesn’t mean spending thousands<br />

on an upgrade either! So why<br />

wouldn’t you want to do everything<br />

possible to make it appealing to<br />

prospective purchasers?<br />

Street appeal<br />

The exterior of your home is the first<br />

thing buyers will see, so the property<br />

needs to look well-kept and inviting. Take<br />

a look at your place from the street and<br />

see it through a buyer’s eyes. So, cut the<br />

lawns, trim trees, plants and hedges, add<br />

some garden lights and place a nice pot or<br />

plant by the front door. Ensure the house<br />

exterior is cleaned or freshened with new<br />

paint if necessary, hose down drives, paths<br />

and fences, put stylish new numbers on<br />

the house and perhaps buy a funky new<br />

letter box!<br />

Make an entrance<br />

Even if your entrance or hallway is<br />

small, you can still give it some wow! A<br />

large mirror adds light and makes an<br />

entrance look twice the size. Fresh flowers,<br />

candles or a stylish piece of art create an<br />

inviting first impression. Ensure floors are<br />

clean whether timber, tiles or carpet.<br />

Create space<br />

Light, air and space are three key<br />

factors in presenting a home to the<br />

best advantage. Open up curtains<br />

and windows and use lamps and light<br />

fittings for mood and ambience. Arrange<br />

furniture to maximise space and remove<br />

items that make the room appear<br />

cramped.<br />

Fresh feel<br />

Freshen rooms with new paint if<br />

necessary, but aim for neutral tones which<br />

are more versatile for buyers. Add a splash<br />

of colour in cushions, throws, artwork or<br />

a vase of flowers. Invest in a new duvet or<br />

bedspread and always make the bed!<br />

Clear out clutter<br />

Storage space sells but clutter<br />

complicates! Clean out your cupboards,<br />

shelves and garage, and get rid of<br />

unnecessary clutter. Buyers inspect<br />

wardrobes and cupboards so tidy them up<br />

and reduce the number of photos, books,<br />

nicknacks on display – they distract<br />

buyers, too!<br />

Beautify the bathroom<br />

Replace or resurface fittings if necessary,<br />

but otherwise you can simply beautify<br />

your bathroom with thorough and<br />

fastidious cleaning, thick opulent towels,<br />

a tray of beautiful soaps and some lush,<br />

green plants. Invest in a new shower<br />

curtain or laundry hamper, and maybe a<br />

sleek, modern towel rail.<br />

Clean clean clean<br />

Cleaning is a mandatory part of<br />

selling your home: have carpets, rugs<br />

and upholstery commercially cleaned<br />

and sanitised, clean drapes and blinds to<br />

look like new, polish glass and furniture,<br />

wash down all surfaces and fittings in<br />

the bathroom and kitchen, clean all light<br />

fittings, wash windows inside and out,<br />

deodorise your home to eliminate any<br />

odours from pets, cooking or smoke.<br />

Outdoor spaces<br />

Even a small patio, deck or terrace<br />

can be enhanced with a café table and<br />

chairs. Add some colourful accessories –<br />

placemats, candle lamps, pots and plants,<br />

and there you have an extra living area.<br />

If space is not limited, hang a hammock,<br />

string some outdoor lights, position a<br />

garden sculpture or create a water feature<br />

that buyers will love.<br />

Hire a handyman<br />

Squeaking doors, dripping taps, cracked<br />

tiles, broken fences, leaking toilets or<br />

appliances that don’t work are a turn-off<br />

for buyers. If you can’t repair or replace<br />

things yourself, then hire a handyman to<br />

make sure everything in your home works<br />

as it should.<br />

Finish it first<br />

Buyers want to see a finished home,<br />

not one that’s still being fixed! So finish<br />

everything before you list your home<br />

for sale, then launch it onto the market<br />

when it looks its absolute best – you have<br />

nothing to lose and everything to gain!<br />

by myself?<br />

Selling a property is easy, right? All<br />

you need to do is stick a ‘for sale’ sign out<br />

front, put a few photos online and hold<br />

a couple of open homes. Job done! Why<br />

wouldn’t you do it yourself?<br />

The fact that private sales made up just<br />

10 per cent of all residential property<br />

sales in New Zealand in the year to July<br />

(down from 13 per cent in 2017 and 17<br />

per cent in 2014) might be a clue that it’s<br />

not as simple and straightforward as you<br />

might think. Research by the industry<br />

membership organisation Real Estate<br />

Institute of New Zealand (REINZ) found<br />

that the median price for properties sold<br />

by real estate agents was 10.9 per cent<br />

higher than private sales.<br />

“Property transactions are big financial<br />

deals and they can get complicated very<br />

quickly,” says Real Estate Authority chief<br />

executive Kevin Lampen-Smith.<br />

“Selling a home, which is likely to<br />

be your biggest asset as well as being a<br />

physical and emotional roof over your<br />

head, is not like selling a used car or<br />

flogging your unwanted Christmas<br />

presents on TradeMe.”<br />

If you decide to sell your property<br />

privately, you will absolutely save on the<br />

commission that you’d otherwise pay a<br />

real estate agent,” Lampen-Smith says.<br />

“Your target is to get at least close to<br />

what an agent would get for your house.<br />

You pay commission to an agent for<br />

them to get the best price and that extra<br />

value is what they will tell you pays your<br />

commission for you, along with less<br />

hassle on the DIY front.”<br />

You know your property better than<br />

anyone, so you’re in a good position to<br />

‘sell’ its features. You’ll have complete<br />

control over the process because you’ll<br />

be dealing directly with potential buyers.<br />

You get to decide every step of the<br />

process, including choosing the method<br />

of sale and setting the price.<br />

However, with complete power comes<br />

complete responsibility, Lampen-Smith<br />

says.<br />

“When you’re selling a property, you<br />

have a legal obligation to share all the<br />

relevant information about it, such as<br />

any issues with the boundary or title, any<br />

unconsented building work or alterations,<br />

any known weathertightness issues<br />

and whether there are any proposed<br />

developments that could have an impact<br />

on a buyer’s access, views or enjoyment.<br />

“If you fail to do this, you could be in<br />

breach of your agreement with the buyer.<br />

This could put the sale in jeopardy, or the<br />

buyer could seek compensation and take<br />

you to court.”<br />

Lampen-Smith says would-be private<br />

sellers will need sharp marketing and<br />

negotiation skills, as well as the ability to<br />

be objective.<br />

“What you think of the property and<br />

what it’s worth won’t necessarily be<br />

shared by potential buyers,” he says.<br />

“It’s easy to sell a property when there<br />

are a few houses for sale and many<br />

buyers, but the market isn’t as buoyant<br />

now in parts of the country as it was<br />

a year ago. Your expectations of price<br />

and ease of sale are aligned with market<br />

conditions. These are things that real<br />

estate agents think about day in and day<br />

out.”<br />

If you’re still keen to DIY it, make sure<br />

you’ve got some good advice from the<br />

experts.<br />

“It can be very useful to get an<br />

independent assessment of what your<br />

property is worth, so you can work out<br />

the price you’ll be willing to accept,”<br />

Lampen-Smith says.<br />

“You can research online (for free)<br />

or pay for a registered valuation. We<br />

strongly recommend that you use a<br />

lawyer or conveyancer to handle all the<br />

legal documentation, including the sale<br />

and purchase agreement. You may also<br />

want to consider help when it comes<br />

to preparing the property for viewings,<br />

whether that means engaging a home<br />

staging company who will make it look<br />

pretty, or a trusted friend to run any open<br />

homes.”<br />

Ultimately, there’s no reason why you<br />

can’t sell your own property if you think<br />

you’ve got the time, skills and energy.<br />

You’ll need to be ready to juggle a lot<br />

of things at once – including marketing<br />

and negotiation – on top of your usual<br />

responsibilities. Whatever you do, make<br />

sure you go into the process with your<br />

eyes open.<br />

Incorporating show homes<br />

in your planning process<br />

There are many things to think about when you’re<br />

considering building a new home.<br />

For Sale - Rolleston<br />

17<br />

Offers Invited<br />

Browsing show homes is a fantastic way<br />

to get you thinking about practicalities,<br />

needs, aesthetics and your wish list! Here<br />

are a few consideration’s to help spark your<br />

planning process.<br />

• What is your exterior style? What kind<br />

of homes do you like? Look around and<br />

take a mental note of what you are drawn<br />

to most.<br />

• What kind of exterior materials do you<br />

like? Once you’ve worked out the look<br />

you like, research what materials are<br />

available and find out about durability.<br />

• How will you use your house? It’s<br />

important to most people to have a good<br />

indoor/outdoor flow and attractive,<br />

sheltered outdoor living. Imagine your<br />

home in various seasons.<br />

• Landscaping is important. Look around<br />

and consider what you like and don’t like.<br />

Are you a structured formal garden type<br />

or do you like a contemporary native<br />

style?<br />

• Sustainability and future-proofing<br />

aren’t just buzzwords anymore. It’s<br />

very important for your new home to<br />

be environmentally friendly. Research<br />

insulation requirements, solar hot water<br />

heating, ventilation options and new<br />

technology to ensure your home will be<br />

affordable to run.<br />

• Interior décor is really exciting. This is<br />

where show homes can really help you get<br />

to know current trends, colours, beautiful<br />

furnishings and furniture. Collect home<br />

magazines and figure out what you’d love<br />

to emulate.<br />

• Also, pause to give thought to<br />

architectural components inside. Do you<br />

remember a raised ceiling? What kind of<br />

finishing do top homes use and which<br />

styles are you drawn to?<br />

• Heating is also a consideration. Have a<br />

look at what show homes are offering.<br />

• Kitchens form the heart of the house.<br />

Show homes give you insight into the<br />

latest styles, materials and storage<br />

facilities available.<br />

• Bathrooms are another big component.<br />

They need to be as luxurious as you can<br />

make them, so start dreaming.<br />

Kitchens form the heart of<br />

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

Stages of a new<br />

house build<br />

21<br />

Before pegs go into the ground for a new house build there is<br />

work to do.<br />

An engineer will advise on a suitable foundation design<br />

for the land to be built on, a soil test and surveying of the<br />

fall of the land will be undertaken as part of Council consent<br />

requirements, and a draftsperson or architect will draw up<br />

a design and finalise plans which incorporate considerable<br />

building specifications.<br />

Before construction can get underway, building consent<br />

must be gained from the local Council. This involves<br />

submitting plans and supporting documentation, including<br />

advising the licensed building practitioners who will complete<br />

the work. The cost of consent is paid up front and covers<br />

Council inspections, carried out at specific stages of the build.<br />

Before the foundations are laid the site is scraped and loose<br />

soil removed. A standard foundation will require a minimum<br />

of a site scraping with the foundations completed as per the<br />

building code. Where the ground does not meet minimum<br />

building standards an engineer designed foundation will be<br />

needed.<br />

Once the foundations have been poured (often the job of<br />

a specialised concrete placer) the drainlayer digs the drains<br />

for sewerage, storm water and water supply. This work may<br />

include an earlier percolation test. This ascertains the rate<br />

water dissipates into the soil, with sandy soils absorbing more<br />

water than denser clay based soils.<br />

The house frames and trusses are produced off-site then<br />

freighted in sections where the builder stands and fixes these<br />

before the roof and gutters are put on, a task usually contracted<br />

out to a roofing contractor. Scaffolding will be erected for<br />

safety. The frames are then wrapped with a waterproof eco<br />

ply or building wrap then the aluminium joinery (windows<br />

and doors) are fitted. Installation of the cladding follows, the<br />

plumber and electrician carry out pre-piping and pre-wiring<br />

work, and the builder installs the internal doors.<br />

Insulation is inserted in the walls and ceilings before the Gib<br />

board is fixed and the plasterer prepares the walls and ceilings<br />

for painting. Next the builder fits the architrave and skirtings,<br />

the electrician drills the power point and lighting holes and<br />

the plumber installs the bath. The painter<br />

sands and paints the walls with the numbers<br />

of coats applied depending on how dark the<br />

chosen paint is. The kitchen may be installed<br />

before the internal painting though usually<br />

afterwards.<br />

Final plumbing work includes shower,<br />

bathroom fittings and toilet installation while<br />

the electrician will be on the job to mount<br />

and connect lights, power points, appliances<br />

and other electrical fittings, as well as<br />

sorting the final power connection. Tiling is<br />

completed before vinyl or carpet flooring is<br />

laid. Lastly, the painter returns to complete<br />

any touch-ups needed.<br />

Outside, concreting or asphalting is<br />

generally one of the last jobs followed by<br />

hard and soft landscaping such as building<br />

decks, internal fences, laying lawns and<br />

preparing garden beds.<br />

Before the owners can move, a Council<br />

Code of Compliance certificate should be<br />

gained so the home has full insurance cover.<br />

The electrician carries out<br />

pre-wiring work.<br />

Insulation is in place before<br />

internal wall linings.<br />

House frames and trusses are usually produced off-site.<br />

Landscaping is completed last.<br />
