HARD WORK: Rolleston firefighters Sam Jonhstone, Matt Hadler, Phil Glen, Mark Bamber, Alana Adams and Rex Macpherson

have been battling the wildfires in Tasman.

• By Anan Zaki

FIREFIGHTERS from across

Selwyn have been called up to

battle the wildfires near Nelson.

Fifteen volunteer firefighters

from Darfield, Lincoln and

Rolleston travelled north, while

many other stations across the

district were on standby.

Rolleston chief fire officer

Nigel Lilley said six members

of the Rolleston Volunteer Fire

Brigade crew had worked “long

and gruelling” 12-hour night

shifts, dealing with hot spots and

preventing flare-ups.

Darfield chief fire officer Alan

Kittelty said five firefighters

travelled from the town. He was

yet to hear an update from the

Darfield crew.

Lincoln sent four firefighters

and chief fire officer Jeremy

Greenwood said he was waiting

to hear updates from the crew.

The wildfires forced the

evacuation of 2500 to

3000 people in the Tasman

district.

The fires were first reported

last week in Pigeon Valley,

Tasman, and covered more than

2300ha.

‘CHICK’

• By Anan Zaki

ELDERLY PEOPLE leaving

keys in cars and doors unlocked

are becoming prime targets for

burglars and thieves.

Police say the issue is happening

more across the district because

the population is growing, bringing

new people into the area.

Leeston Constable Herb Inwood

said it was brought to his attention

after an elderly man’s unlocked

ute was stolen while he did the

grocery shopping.

Constable Inwood says Leeston

is not alone for elderly being

targeted and similar incidents

are increasing in Darfield and

Lincoln.

The man, in his mid-70s, left

his red Nissan Navara, with

the personalised number plate

‘CHICK’, unlocked with the

engine running at the Leeston

FreshChoice car park on High

St at 12.23pm on February

1, Constable Inwood said.

IT’S THAT time of the year again – the

countdown to the City2Surf.

This year’s instalment will be the 45th

time the iconic event has been held.

Thousands upon thousands of

Cantabrians have ran, walked, skateboarded, pushed prams

and hobbled to the line over the decades.

On pages 10-11 today, we talk to some of the people who will

take part this year.

The City2Surf is not a race – but many do consider it that,

and that’s fine. Being first across the line is a great incentive.

For others, taking on the City2Surf can be the start or end

of a personal goal from a fitness perspective or just to say I’ve

done it.

With two distances, it’s an event for everyone.

Drink driving excuses – why they

A United States woman

who said she failed

a drink driving test

because she had been

nibbling on her coat

went viral last month.

So what excuses do

Canterbury motorists

use? Sophie Cornish

reports

PETE STILLS has heard many

drink driving excuses during his

long career in the police.

Yet the Rolleston-based Senior

Sergeant has never known one to

work.

“I’ve never seen anything yet

that has successfully overcome

the machines,”

he said.

Senior

Sergeant Stills

was once even

offered a bribe if

he would ‘look

the other way.’

“He then

Pete Stills

went on to say

he was friends

with my boss, when I asked him

which boss, he couldn’t give me

a name.”

He’s also never seen the old

wives’ tale of putting a coin in

your mouth work either. The

method comes from a legend that

a coin can interfere with your

saliva’s composition.

The zinc and copper in the coin

supposedly neutralises or masks

the actual level of alcohol by

inducing a chemical reaction or

coating the inside of the mouth.

“It didn’t work for the guy I was

dealing with a long time ago. He

put the coins in his mouth right

in front of me,” he said.

In 2011, prominent West Coast

lawyer Doug Taffs put coins in

his mouth to try and outwit a

breath test, but the method failed.

Senior Sergeant Stills has seen

people take deep breaths in an

effort to control their breathing.

“People will tend to minimise

what they have drunk and often

people might stall for time,

thinking time will be their

saviour. But it’s not, sometimes

stalling for time could show up a

higher reading.”

After three years on the team

that targets alcohol and drug

impaired drivers, Sergeant Stu

Martindale has also heard it all.

“The most common thing we

hear is: ‘I’ve only had two drinks,’

and we always ask: ‘How big were

excuses from

limit – the most

common being,

the drinks? Were they crates or

kegs?’” he said.

It’s a classic line that veteran

officer, Sergeant Colin Stewart,

has heard many times.

“You have to think, were

they drinking out of buckets?” he

said.

Another excuse is that they’ve

been eating liqueur chocolates.

“I don’t think they actually

have any alcohol in them, it’s

just the flavouring,” Sergeant

Martindale said.

He remembers one driver who

went to court for drink driving

changing his tune – slightly.

“He said that he’d been eating

A woman once told Sergeant

Martindale she had alcohol on

her breath because she had been

drinking Listerine.

“But it actually transpired

this lady was addicted to

drinking mouthwash. She was

drinking it in such volumes,

it was enough to show in our

evidential test.”

Another woman said she

had been eating Kurols, a

mentholated throat lozenge.

don’t get you off the hook

“To eat the amount you would

need to fail a breath test, you

would be physically sick before

you were able to do that,” he said.

Many drivers of course say

they haven’t been drinking, but

when they are

sprung then

question the

validly of the

breath test.

“All our

devices are

calibrated

annually, by

Stu Martindale

Colin Stewart

a specialist.

The modern

machines

always purge

themselves of

any traces of

alcohol before

any test,”

said Sergeant

Martindale.

Many

people make a

stupid excuse

initially, then realise how stupid

it was, then roll with it for awhile,

then towards the end they say,

well, actually I’ve had this

much . . .’’

The “two drinks” excuse comes

from a “major misconception”

with our legal drink driving

limit, said Sergeant Martindale.

“When the lower limit was

introduced, it suggested a

couple of drinks, but that is one

standard drink per hour with

food and the theory is that every

person is the same, but it is not.”

“Every person is different, for

some people two drinks will

have zero effect, whereas for

other people the effect could be

dramatic.”

Factors which play a role in

this include age, body size, your

body’s chemical imbalance at the

time, how much sleep a person

has had and how fit or unfit they

are.

“Ultimately the biggest

message is if you think you are

going to drink alcohol, find a

sober driver or an alternative way

home,” said Sergeant Martindale.

The worst excuse police hear

is people telling them to “go and

do some real policing and catch

some criminals,” he said.

WHAT ARE THE LIMITS?

•From December 2014,

the alcohol limit for

drivers 20-years-old

and over lowered from

400mcg of alcohol per

litre of breath to 250mcg.

The blood alcohol limit

lowered from 80mg of

alcohol per 100ml of

blood (0.08), to 50mg

(0.05)

•For drivers under-20, the

limit is zero

•Guidance from the

Institute of Environmental

Science and Research

indicates most adults

may be able to drink two

standard drinks over two

hours and are likely to

remain under the drink

driving limit for adults.

•A standard drink contains

10g of pure alcohol. This

is about 330ml of beer,

100ml of wine or 30ml of

straight spirits

Sergeant Martindale believes

for every drink driver caught,

one innocent life has been saved

on the roads.

‘Drown him’

offender gets

community

service

• By Sophie Cornish

SEVENTY hours of community

service will be carried out by one

of the offenders found guilty in

the highly-publicised Rolleston

“drown him” case.

Judge Stephen O’Driscoll

approved a plan for one offender’s

punishment last week, which

was formed at a family group

conference.

In December, following a twoday

Youth Court hearing, two

17-year-olds were found guilty of

assault with intent to injure.

They were 16 at the time of

the attack in November 2016,

when the 16-year-old victim was

confronted by a group of youths

in Tennyson St, Rolleston, after

the annual fireworks event.

It was alleged the victim was

assaulted and pushed into a water

race, where he had his head held

under water while other youths

yelled “drown him.”

At the sentencing last week,

the other offender was remanded

on bail and will reappear before

Judge O’Driscoll on March 5.

An agreement over punishment

was not reached at the family

group conference.

Leaving the car running was

should not be done today, he said.

CCTV picked up footage of

a person wearing a grey hoodie

entering the red ute but the identity

of the person was unclear, he said.

A phone with a GPS tracker

was left in the vehicle but the

signal was lost at Harmans Rd, near

Drain Rd, Constable Inwood said.

“It’s just the sort of thing [leaving

cars unlocked] that the older

people seem to do. They go: ‘Oh,

it’s only Leeston, it’ll be alright’.

But things are changing unfortunately,”

he said.

The elderly man was “pretty

embarrassed” about the incident,

he said.

“I’ll guarantee that it’s not the locals

like the 20 or 30-year families

who are doing the dishonest stuff,”

Constable Inwood said.

“It’s the people who have come

He said it was “the same” in

Marae ceremony for new citizens

WAITANGI DAY was a day

to remember for 30 new New

Zealanders.

They became citizens at the

first ever citizenship ceremony

held at Ngāti Moki Marae,

Taumutu.

Te Taumutu Rūnanga and

the people of Ngāi Te Ruahikihiki

hosted the ceremony at

the marae, which sits close to

the shores of Te Waihora/Lake

Ellesmere.

The 30 new citizens represented

12 different nationalities,

some from near neighbours

such as Australia and Tonga,

and other from as far afield as

the Seychelles, India and the

Netherlands.

One of the new citizens,

Marise Bergmann, of South Africa,

said that for her family the

marae setting was a highlight,

with the calling on to the marae

and the use of te reo.

For her, gaining citizenship

was a family affair, after her

mother and sister became

citizens five years ago, and her

brother last year. “I just want to

be a Kiwi – I really love life in

Christchurch and enjoy the outdoors

and Selwyn,” she says.

The family moved out

from Christchurch after the

earthquakes and are enjoying

the semi-rural way of life in

Prebbleton.

“The people are beautiful

here, and we love having the

country feel and being a bit

more rural – there’s not all the

hustle and bustle of city life,” she

said.

The district council usually

holds its monthly citizenship

ceremony at the council chambers

in Rolleston, but chose

to hold a special ceremony on

Waitangi Day at the Taumutu

marae, which was attended by

around 140 people.

Mayor Sam Broughton says

the event marks a first for the

district. “This is the first time

that a citizenship ceremony has

been held at Ngāti Moki Marae,

a change that I am proud of

leading, and is an example of

our close relationship with Te

Taumutu Rūnanga,” he says.

other areas.

“The occasion holds extra

I HOPE everyone enjoyed

their Waitangi Day break

– our only truly national

holiday. That is until we all

realise that a national holiday

in winter – like, say, for

Matariki – would actually be

quite nice.

I’ve lost my mouse. My

computer mouse that is.

Well, I say ‘I lost it’, but

really someone small and

cute found it, took it, and

put it somewhere safe. Or

under something. Or behind

something. Or in something.

I mean, she can’t eat it, I

don’t think. Turn your back to

Vittoria’s actions and she’ll get

up to some sort of mischief

without fail. Age and stage,

right? Either way, it’s made

writing this slightly difficult. I

use a laptop and am the kind

of person who can accidently

wipe his computer by

touching that bloody mouse

pad. Just got to persist and

deal without it for now.

That’s one way to remind

me to be on my toes as to

things around Vittoria.

Considering her mischief

abilities, I’m equally

impressed by Laura’s and

my persistence in keeping all

her pyjamas, bibs and socks

neatly folded and stacked on

GUILTY: Vittoria caught in

the act of mischief.

VITTORIA

& Matt

a shelf in direct line of fire.

I think we’ve both re-folded

and re-stacked that shelf

100 times. She’ll grow out of

it eventually, either that or

we’ll buy another drawer or

something.

It’s hilarious when you catch

her in the act of mischief, she

usually shoots over a sly look

while slowly continuing to do

whatever it is you’re telling

her ‘no’ about. If you catch

her “borrowing” something,

she generally giggles, tries

to hide it behind herself and

then runs off. Sometimes too

fast and she falls over, making

it funnier. Or immediately

sadder.

She is so adorable that it’s

hard to be angry mostly.

Unless it’s the 10th time

that day. Then it’s time for a

recharging cuppa.

Beyond renewed assaults

on folded clothing, this week

also saw Vittoria and I start

at her first toddler-focussed

activity, Shimmy Shakers, at

the Phillipstown Community

Hub on Monday. She really

enjoyed herself, I could tell

because even though she

abandoned me to go play with

the cupboards with a new

friend as it started, she came

back all smiles soon after and

stayed for the rest.

Council to

consider

another

West Melton

housing

development

• By Anan Zaki

MORE HOUSING is on the

cards for the growing district.

The district council will

today consider an application

to change the District Plan

for another residential

development in West Melton.

Developer GW Wilfield Ltd

wants to change the District

Plan at a 73.5ha site on West

Coast and Weedons Ross Rds

from Living 2 and 2A to a

Living WM South Zone.

In a Living 2A zone in West

Melton, the maximum number

of allotments is 10. In Living 2

zones, allotments must be no

less than 5000m 2 .

GW Wilfield is proposing

70 lots under the changed

plan.

District council staff are

recommending councillors

accept the request to change the

District Plan.

Councillors will vote on

the plan change at the district

council meeting at 1pm.

“I dream of a Pacific where this terrible disease has

been eradicated and can no longer cause fear, stigma

and discrimination in families and communities.”

Lorena and three of her children were diagnosed with leprosy.

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

sometimes there can be serious effects from the disease, like

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

But then the Pacific Leprosy Foundation started its new programme

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

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

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

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

of money.”

Your gift of $35 will provide preventative

treatment for one household contact of a

leprosy patient.

average household in Kiribati, Samoa or the

Solomon Islands.

These people are all up for it –

Thousands will turn out

for the 45th anniversary

of the City2Surf on

March 24. Reporter

Sophie Cornish spoke

to some of the people

who have entered the

fun run

Karen Young – This year’s

City2Surf will be the first ever

running event Mrs Young has

participated in.

In June last year,

she joined the

Energise Health

and Fitness

running club and

has been training

for the 6km

event through

a 12-week

Karen Young programme.

Mrs Young runs with her club

once a week while trying to fit

in her own training. “I think it

will be achievable (the 6km),” she

said.

Mark Winsley, 49 – Mr

Winsley has tackled the 14km

City2Surf event before, but this

year he will run the 6km. That’s

because his nine-year-old son,

Felix, will be running with him,

along with his partner, Janelle

Clark. The father and son have

been “hiking

around the

hills and

jogging around

the parks” to

prepare for the

event. Felix is

not a novice

when it comes

Mark Winsley to running

events, having participated in

the Kids’ Mara’Fun race before,

which is part of the Christchurch

Marathon.

“I took my neighbours son

to do it (City2Surf) a few years

ago – he was a bit older. Felix

watched it and said I’m going

do that papa,” said Mr Winsley.

The pair have been training two

to three times a week. Their

training includes a hike in the

weekend and a couple of runs

accompanied by “kicking the ball

around and playing cricket,” said

Mr Winsley.

Rebecca

Barrell, 44

– In the past

Ms Barrell has

completed the

Half Marathon.

Now she wants

to get back into

running. Ms

Barrell has set

herself the goal of completing

the 14km event this year and has

been training using the 10-week

programme offered by City2Surf.

“I walk a lot up the hills, but I

wanted to improve my running

again and I thought this was a

good goal . . . I’ve done 10km

in the past, years ago. I did the

6km last year with the dog,

so I thought this was a good

progression,” she said.

The registered nurse has been

running around Hagley Park for

her training.

Ed Hogbin,

describes

himself as a

“little bit of a

runner” but it

will be his first

time doing the

City2Surf. “A

Ed Hogbin

few years back I

did a half marathon and thought

I’d have another crack at one this

year.” He will use the City2Surf

14km event as a “halfway

gauge” while training to see how

on-track he is for his next half

marathon. Hagley Park is his ‘goto’

spot for training two or three

times a week.

Judith McInnes, 77 –

Mrs McInnes, who is retired, says

her participation in the 14km

event is “not a hardcore thing,

but just for fun.” It will not be

her first time in the City2Surf,

having completed the event six

or seven times previously, both

walking and jogging. “I do both

walking and jogging and it’s just

a challenge.” Mrs McInnes goes

jogging twice a week. She likes to

explore the Harry Ell Walkway,

Sign of the Kiwi, Sign of the

Takahe and Godley Head tracks.

completed the event a handful

be Ezra’s first time doing the

14km. “He’s just brought some

new running shoes especially for

it,” said his older brother Josiah,

who has run up the Rapaki Track

a couple of times to prepare. “I

Angela Penn, 49,

and Geoff Sutton, 42

– The brother and sister

duo aren’t letting the fact

they are getting older slow

the down. The pair are

running the 6km event

in the City2Surf together.

“I’m going to be 50-yearsold

soon, I might as well

keep going while I am still

standing and don’t have

many injuries,” said Mrs

Penn. Back in October,

the pair ran in the Pegasus

Fun Run 6km event and

hope to run the 10km

event at the Christchurch

Marathon in June. They

are both driven by the

hope that one day they

might have grandchildren,

who they would like to

be fit and healthy for. “It’s

more about getting out

there and enjoying it. I am

really looking forward to

spending some time with

my brother, it’s good to

hang out,” Mrs Penn.

Mr Comber took part in

two half-marathons in

Ashburton and Timaru.

Now retired from his job

PREPARED: Geoff Sutton

and Angela Penn.

as an english teacher, he

said he has decided to get

back into running. He

enjoys running around the

streets near where he lives

and often goes to Les Mills

gym to stay in shape. “I like

the City2Surf because it is

an easy distance and it’s a

popular run to take part

in.”

James Ferguson,

32 – Mr Ferguson will

take on the 14km event

in the City2Surf. It will

be his first time doing the

event and he admits he’s a

“first-time runner,” opting

to keep fit through rugby

and other sport. The event

will help him prepare for

more running later in the

year when he takes on the

Buller Gorge half marathon

and the Saint Clair

Vineyard half marathon in

Blenheim. He is enjoying

his training – somewhat.

“It’s a fair distance the

14km, but I’ve got to get

fit somehow.” Before and

after work a couple of times

a week, Mr Ferguson has

been challenging himself

to run distances between

10km and 14km. He will

accompanied by a group of

friends who will also run in

the event next month.

Pauline De Wit, 66 –

Mrs De Wit isn’t keen to

slow down anytime soon.

Previously, she has run the

6km event in the City2Surf

but next month she decided

to “push the boat out” and

do the 14km run. “I felt I

could have gone further so

I am keen to try the 14km.

I have seen the wonderful

sense of achievement

gained from an event such

Salt and Pepper take down

McCaw in Coast to Coast

• By Jacob Page

IT’S NOT everyday you get

bragging rights over a retired All

Blacks captain.

But that’s what Southbridge’s

Warwick Tuffnell and Leeston’s

Nigel Robertson claimed in their

Coast to Coast race over the

weekend.

“We didn’t really have a time

in mind but we wanted to beat

Richie McCaw – which we did.

Not too bad for a couple of

45-year-olds,”

Robertson said.

The pair raced

under the team

name Salt and

Pepper in the

two-day tandem

event, completing

Richie

McCaw

the 233km run,

cycle and paddle

in 14hr 32min

51sec – 17min faster than McCaw

and his partner Rob Nichol.

Tuffnell and Robertson

admitted they spent more time

with each other than their

families during the nine-month

preparation, but they both relied

on each other for motivation.

“I started doing a couple

of triathlons, like Challenge

Wanaka, and we realised we were

doing a few of the same triathlons

so we thought why not give

(Coast to Coast) a go,” Robertson

said.

Tuffnell took part in the

JOB DONE: Warwick Tuffnell and Nigel Robertson celebrate

after completing the Coast to Coast tandem event on Saturday.

PHOTO: ROBERTSON FAMILY

individual one-day race three

years ago, but it was a new

experience for Robertson.

“The last 40km into the

head wind coming into

Christchurch was quite gruelling.

I’m a better runner and Warwick

is better on the bike so we were

able to work hard for each other,”

Robertson said.

Said Tuffnell: “My arms could

barely hold on to the bike in the

last 15km because the paddle

had taken it out of me. The

whole thing was a warm-up for

Nigel to do the one-day event

next year. It’s one of those kind

of events which can be addictive

so we’ll wait and see what

happens.

SELWYN’S FIRST ever

combined secondary school

athletics day will be held this

month.

More than 300 students from

Ellesmere College, Lincoln High

and Darfield High are set to

compete at Ngā Puna Wai Sports

Hub on February 26.

The idea is the

brainchild of

Ellesmere College

head of sport Chris

O’Connell and has

support from the

Selwyn Sports Trust.

O’Connell said it

was an alternative

to the annual school

athletics day.

“After last year,

we had a post event

meeting and came

to the conclusion that the usual

approach, where every student

and teacher was involved for a

whole day, wasn’t working,” he

said.

“We floated the idea of doing a

Selwyn-wide thing, while using

the Nga Puna Wai facility, and

all the secondary schools were

really encouraging of the idea.

SPORTS

Combined high school

athletics day to get

out of starting block

Hopefully it’s a way Selwyn

athletes can test themselves

against strong competition

without the need to go to

Christchurch.”

O’Connell said the inaugural

event will see year 9-13 students

compete in traditional track and

field events. “It’s the first year of

a new idea so there

will be trial and error,

but like anything, you

hope it’ll be around

in five years and

thriving,” he said.

Selwyn Sports

Trust chief executive

Michael Wilson said

the organisation is

behind the event as it

encourages people to

be more active.

“Hopefully it’s a

Chris O’Connell sign of more events

like this in Selwyn,” he said.

O’Connell hopes it will open

up communication between

schools when it comes to sports

events. “We’ve already had talks

with schools around having

games against each other in

various other sports, which is a

positive,” he said.

a sanctuary

to call home

Creating a peaceful life,

where we put our wellness and

wellbeing first, can be a difficult

task in this day and age.

With the pressures of work, families and other commitments, it can

all lead to stress and fatigue and we find the need to recharge

even greater.

It is nice to seek solace in our surrounds. If we can find that peace

in the place we choose to live, then coming home means we can

instantly gain that calm and wellness – creating a better life for

ourselves and our loved ones.

At Te Whariki subdivision situated in Lincoln, you can find that oasis.

A restful surrounding, where nature and everyday life combine to

create a wonderful place to call home.

This sanctuary comes complete with wetlands dispersed throughout

– where Pukeko, Black Swan, frogs, ducks and a variety of other

wildlife all reside. These wetlands have a myriad of walkways and

cycle tracks so that you can meander or cycle your way around

while taking in the wonderful nature which inhabit here. This is a

great way to start or finish your working day, or to make the most of

your free time at the weekend.

The wide, curved roads also create a sense of space and freedom,

and with the nearby Lincoln University and all the amenities of

Lincoln Village only minutes away, you really will be living the

perfect life.

Te Whariki has been developed with care and thought by

Ngai Tahu Property in joint collaboration with Lincoln University. Te

Taumutu Runanga have worked closely with Ngai Tahu Property to

establish the wetlands, re-establish native plants and bring to life,

through street and reserve names, a number of place and species

names associated with Te Waihora (Lake Ellesmere).

SKILL: Prebbleton’s Jeremy Webb sideways in his Suzuki

GSXR-powered TQ.

Second TQ title for Webb

• By Allan Batt

PREBBLETON’S Jeremy Webb

won his second consecutive

New Zealand TQ midget car

championship at Ruapuna

Speedway on Saturday night.

Webb dominated the

qualifying heats, winning four of

his five races and then led from

the start to take out the honours

in the 25-lap final. Aucklanders

Peter Hunnibel and Ryan Baker

finished second and third

respectively while Belfast’s Liam

McCoubrey and Kyle Glover from

Rolleston were fourth and fifth.

THe event attracted 45 entries

from throughout New Zealand,

including 13 North Island teams.

Webb joins his father Dick as a

two-time winner of the event.

SUCCESS: Jeremy Webb

win.

Jaden

Ransley

A SUPERB weekend for

Prebbleton racer Jaden Ransley

means he will head to the

final round of the Toyota 86

Championship with the points

lead.

Ransley, 17, had two wins

and a second place finish from

three races at the penultimate

round of the championship at

Manfeild in

Feilding.

After coming

into the

round 13

points off the

championship

lead, Ransley’s

win in race

one on Saturday

elevated

him to the top.

He was then

able to extend

his buffer with a tough-fought

win in race two on Sunday,

holding off championship

rival Callum Hedge and Arran

Crighton.

At the race start, it was

Crighton that got the better

jump out of those on the front

row. It looked like Ransley

might have been able to use

his inside line to take the lead

into turn one, but Crighton was

determined to lead and by the

turn-four hairpin he had the top

spot.

TITLE SHOT: Jayden Ransley (No 53) will head to Hampton

Downs in the lead of the Toyota 86 Championship following

two wins at Manfeild. ​

SPORTS

A lead change looked imminent

on lap three. Ransley

had been all over Crighton’s tail

after getting edged on lap one,

culminating in a big lock-up. By

turn one on the following lap,

Ransley was by.

“I had a terrible start, which

put me into second. We had

a good battle with Arran

[Crighton] and then managed

to get past him,” said Ransley

afterwards.

“Callum [Hedge] was really

coming along good too. Our car

went off a bit at the end there, so

there was bit of a fight to keep

Callum behind me.”

Ransley finished second in the

final race of the weekend behind

Hedge, who is now second in

SELWYN TIMES

New citizens welcomed at

Waitangi Day ceremony

Waitangi Day 2019 was an extra special celebration for 30 Selwyn residents, who became New

Zealand citizens at the first ever citizenship ceremony to be held at Ngāti Moki Marae, Taumutu.

Te Taumutu Rūnanga and the people of Ngāi Te Ruahikihiki hosted the ceremony at the marae,

near Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere.

The 30 new citizens represented 12 different nationalities, from near neighbours like Australia and

Tonga, and others from as far afield as the Seychelles, India and the Netherlands.

Selwyn mayor Sam Broughton says the event, attended by around 140 people, marks a first for

the district. “This is the first time that a citizenship ceremony has been held at Ngāti Moki Marae,

and is an example of our close relationship with Te Taumutu Rūnanga,” he says.

“The occasion holds extra significance due to being held on Waitangi Day and is an opportunity

for those attending to gain a better understanding of local history.

“The 30 people who became citizens have come from countries all over the world to make their

home with us in Selwyn, and our growing diversity is great to see.”

Ioannis Delikostidis, from Greece, was one of the citizenship recipients, and said he enjoyed the

experience of being on the marae. “It was nice to have it here instead of in a formal place,” he said.

“I sought citizenship because I have been here many years and feel like I’m already part of the

society and the country,” he says. “Citizenship is something that helps you feel like you are

integrated and part of the whole.”

Mr Delikostidis and his wife only recently moved to Selwyn, but says it’s a really amazing place to

live. “The people are friendly and although it’s close to the city, it’s still a bit out of the way. It’s a

nice, safe, quiet, peaceful place with lot of young families.”

Get fit and active in 2019

We have released the term one brochure for all Council-run fitness

and recreation classes in Selwyn.

The programmes at Rolleston Community Centre and Lincoln

Event Centre have had huge growth over the past few years and

following the growth in other communities, the Tai Tapu Community

Centre and West Melton Community and Recreation Centre are also

running classes.

The centres offer classes for a range of people including fitness

and weights classes such as Pump, Spin and HIIT, Yoga classes,

activities for young adults like Get Your Skates On and Basketball,

sessions to get the toddlers moving such as Mini Gym and classes

for more mature residents.

The influx of people into Selwyn over the past few years means we

have had to ensure that our new programmes met the needs of our

whole community. We aim to make all our programmes affordable to

the whole community – from young people to older adults.

If you prefer to exercise in the pool the Selwyn Aquatic Centre is the

place for you!

Our Aquafit timetable offers the benefits of aquatic exercise targeting

balance, endurance, toning, cardiovascular fitness and more.

This year the programme has nearly doubled in the number of total

classes from 7 to 12 per week, adding in extra classes both during

the day and in the evening. We also introduced two new intensities:

Hydro Health (low intensity, rehab and recovery focused class) and

Aqua HIIT (high intensity interval training).

It is the enthusiasm, friendliness and motivation of the instructors

that keep our participants coming back week after week, come

along and see for yourself.

Pick up a brochure today from your closest centre or check it out

online at selwyn.govt.nz.

Get emergency alerts through

Selwyn Gets Ready

Did you know you can sign up to receive texts or emails warning

you of events like strong winds, uncontrolled fire, snow or messages

from local police?

This free service is provided through a website text and email service

operated by our Emergency Management team.

The Selwyn Gets Ready website is a database which contains

contact information for local residents. This information is used by

local community response teams to identify who needs assistance

in an emergency and who has skills or resources (like first aid skills

or generators) that could help in a disaster.

In a disaster a network of community response teams operates in

Selwyn checking on the welfare of their community, identifying what

needs to be done in their area and requesting assistance if needed.

Access to household information is restricted to local community

response teams and can’t be viewed by the public.

Humble identity still

and ball to lead his team to victory.

Donkers paves the way for

Leeston-Southbridge win

BEN DONKERS proved to be

a one-man match-winner for

Leeston-Southbridge in round

11 of the Canterbury country

premier one-day cricket

competition on Saturday.

Donkers hit a brisk 60 with

the bat and then took 5-29

as his team defended 197,

bowling Oxford out for 85. The

112-run victory keeps Leeston-

Southbridge second on the

table. In spite of being on the

losing side, Oxford off-spinner

Mark Murphy took 5-28 from

his 8.1 overs.

Weedons’ batsmen looked

to have posted a defendable

total when they amassed 198

all out against Southbrook at

Southbrook Domain.

Opener Shannon Dunnett

made 69, and captain Sam

Wilson made 64 – his third half

century in a row.

However, the competition

leaders proved why they are the

team to catch, chasing down

their target for the loss of just

two wickets with 14 overs to

spare. Southbrook wicketkeeper

Matt Brine made 83, while

Shannan Stewart added an

unbeaten 47. Kaiapoi overcame

Darfield by three wickets in

a low-scoring game. Darfield

needed their tail to wag to post

147 for nine.

Darfield were 21-6 before

Patty Readon made 40 and

Alister Collins contributed

27. Raj Saini was the chief

destroyer, taking 5-31. Kaiapoi

got home with an over to spare

thanks to an unbeaten 41 from

Wayne Bell.

Sefton beat Cheviot by 17

runs after defending 151 all out.

Sefton opener Tim Harrison

made 52 to anchor the innings.

Opening bowler Brendon

Wellington ensured that was

more than enough after he took

4-22.

•On Saturday, Weedons

will host Kaiapoi; Darfield

will welcome Oxford;

Leeston-Southbridge will

face Sefton at Leeston Park

and Southbrook will travel

to play Cheviot.

He was born, raised and lived

his whole life in the Rolleston

area and is happy to have done

so. His focus on life has been his

family, farming and giving back

to the community.

Lex was born in 1936 and at

that time his parents were running

a sheep farm on Hoskyns

Rd, near the intersection with

Maddisons Rd. His father, Alec,

who had emigrated from Scotland

and served in the NZ Rifle

Brigade during World War 1, had

purchased the property from the

Marshall family in 1929, which

the Cockburn family have owned

it ever since.

Lex recalls some of his earliest

memories as being when he

attended Weedons School on

Weedons Ross Rd. He started

school during World War 2 and

at the time there were only 18

children attending there.

Life was simple and he remembers

the female teacher riding

her motorcycle all the way from

Sheffield at a time when very

little of the roading in the district

was sealed. His parents had

decided to send him to Weedons

School instead of Rolleston

because they did not want him

crossing the railway lines and

Main South Rd when walking

to school. Three generations of

Cockburn children have now

attended the school.

In the late 1940s there was no

secondary school near Rolleston

and the students had to travel

into Christchurch by train to attend

college. Each school day Lex

would walk to the old Rolleston

railway station and catch either

the morning passenger train

from Springfield, which had old

wooden slat seats, or take the

later Timaru train that had more

comfortable seating.

Lex attended Christchurch

Technical College, which was

located on the current site of

He claims he was no scholar, but

enjoyed the practical skills he

learned in engineering. Quite

often he would skip class and

spend the day at the ‘pictures.’

Lex’s father died suddenly at

home in 1951, and as the only

child in the family, Lex had to

leave school aged 14 to help his

mother run the farm. Times were

tough and the soil was light, but

together they managed to build

the business, increase the size

of their sheep flock and build

a new house on the property.

The increasing prices paid for

wool during the 1950s helped to

achieve this.

Our Great

history

WITH WAYNE STACK

Lex’s father died suddenly at

home in 1951, and as the only

child in the family, Lex had to

leave school aged 14 to help his

mother run the farm. Times

were tough and the soil was

light, but together they managed

to build the business, increase

the size of their sheep flock and

build a new house on the property.

The increasing prices paid

for wool during the 1950s helped

to achieve this.

One way Lex earned money

as a boy was by shooting rabbits,

which there were plenty

of. He initially borrowed a .22

rifle to shoot them, selling them

to the local postman (who also

delivered the bread to the farm

gate). Once he had saved enough

money he was able to buy his

own rifle and a bike.

Lex recalls his father purchasing

their first tractor in 1949,

an Allis-Chalmers, which he

learned to drive around the

farm. Before this all the heavy

work was done by horses. They

bought their first car in the early

1950s but travelled in the farm

truck before that. There were

regulations restricting imported

vehicles during the post-war

years but most farmers proved

able to negotiate to get the machinery

they needed.

He joined the Springston

Young Farmers Club in the

1950s and was a regular attendee

of the local dances that provided

an opportunity to meet young

ladies. It was at one of these that

he met a young nurse originally

from Gisborne, Annette

Mooney, who he married in

1962. By that time Lex’s mother

had died and Annette became

a partner in running the farm.

They have been happily married

for 56 years.

In 1963 their son, Paul, was

born, followed by their daughter,

Helen in 1975. Paul and his

wife Julie now run the farm,

assisted by their three children

and Helen.

Although primarily a sheep

farm, in their years of farming

Lex and Annette were able

to diversify to counter shifting

markets and at one stage had

established a sizable deer herd

that provided good returns. They

also had several house cows that

provided them milk.

Lex claims there was not much

to Rolleston when he was growing

up in the 1940s and 50s. The

railway was the main feature

of the township and the social

heart of the community was the

pub. At this time it was run by

a Mrs Robinson who would sell

ice cream and soft drink to the

children from the dining room

of the hotel, as initially there was

no grocery shop in Rolleston.

There was a butchery run by

the Willetts family situated on

what is now Tennyson St, with

the general store later being

established on the same street

opposite where KFC is now.

There was also a tile factory on

Brookside Rd (near the site of

the current vet clinic) that employed

about 15 people, which

used a traction engine to power

its equipment.

He also remembered the

generosity of Mrs Robinson who

had paid for tennis courts to be

built on George Holmes Rd, near

Jones Rd, for the children of the

township so they had something

to do. The 1956 census recorded

there were only 230 people living

in Rolleston at this time.

Lex claims that there has always

been a strong sense of community

spirit within the people of

Rolleston and Weedons, and it

was through this that they got

things done.

An example of this was the

creation of the Weedons Golf

Club in the late 1960s. He recalls

it began with support from the

Paparua County leasing out

reserve land, with a small number

of foundation members, including

himself, using their tractors

to prepare the original six-hole

course. Over time the size of the

club and the course has increased

through the efforts of the community

and both he and Annette

recall the sporting and social

benefits they enjoyed from the

club throughout the years.

Even in his golden years Lex

continues to enjoy giving his

time to the community. He is

a life member of the Rolleston

Lions Club, and along with Brian

Whittington, they are the only

foundation members of the club

who have been active every year

since it was established in 1978.

Humble by nature, Lex is

proud of the community projects

he has been involved with

through Lions, especially the

restoration of the water wheel at

Cream Can Corner and involvement

in the Rolleston 150th

Celebration in 2015.

He was honoured to be asked

to cut the cake at the opening

ceremony with local MP, Amy

Adams.

Although Rolleston is no

longer the small, close-knit

community of Lex’s youth, where

everyone knew each other, he

still enjoys living in the area

in his retirement and having

an occasional drink with the

many friends he has made in the

community over the years.

New engine for Ford Everest SUV

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

I’VE HAD JUST two Ford

Everest drives – one from the

previous generation, and the new

model for 2019.

Interestingly, both have involved

long road trips while my

wife and I have been holiday. The

first was ticking off a route I’d

long had on my bucket list – the

Great Ocean Rd from Melbourne

to Adelaide.

The most recent was to travel

to Queenstown to see January’s

Gibbstson Valley Winery concert.

Both drives served to prove

how comfortable and capable the

Everest is on a long journey.

There was one significant difference

between the two sport

utility vehicles. The original

Everest used the 3.2-litre fivecylinder

turbo diesel, the new

model for 2019 has a 2-litre fourcylinder

turbo diesel engine.

Ford is quick to point out

the new engine is more powerful

and has significantly more

torque than the five-potter, and

it is also claiming fuel economy

improvements. I’m not disputing

any of that, the 2-litre engine is

a real gem, it is refined, smooth

and uncharacteristically quiet for

diesel and, for that matter, it is a

beauty.

Total power outputs are

157kW and 500Nm, against

143kW and 470Nm for the five.

That’s a significant gain, and

when you are powering a vehicle

that weighs in at around 2500kg,

any bit of extra oomph is useful.

The Everest glides beautifully

on the open road, it is whisper

quiet, and even when the engine

is put under pressure, it flows

through the rev range unimpeded.

A lot of the latter is due to the

pairing of it to a new 10-speed

gearbox, it is also a revelation.

You could almost believe the

transmission was continuously

variable, unless you are looking

at the gearshift position lights

on the dash panel or moving

100%

Capital gain

to the resident

through the gears sequentially,

you’d have no idea what gear is

selected, except to say it works

through the transmission seamlessly,

there’s never a point where

the wrong gear is selected. I carried

out many a highway overtake,

and the engine was always

in the sweet spot.

In terms of acceleration, the

big Everest moves with adequate

pace, it will complete a highway

overtake in around 5sec, and a

9sec time to make a standstill to

100km/h can be expected. These

are good times for a bulky sevenseater.

Therein lies the concept of

Everest. Even though it is based

on the Ranger’s four-wheel-drive

system, ladder chassis and live

rear axle, it has been softened

considerably, and lends itself to

comfortable motion. There’s no

denying it is bulky, but it has

space on the inside so that comfort

levels aren’t compromised.

Sure, it’s a bit of a juggle accessing

the rear row of seats, but it

is no worse than many other

seven-seaters.

If you have the rear seats

folded the cargo area is voluminous.

My wife doesn’t travel

light, so even for just a couple

of days we had much luggage,

yet it was swallowed easily. For

the record, the rear row of seats

move forward electrically, which

is just one of the many things

the Everest can claim as a luxury

vehicle. It arrives in one specification

only – Titanium. In that

form it is loaded with goodies,

and I guess when you have a big

vehicle on a solid foundation, as

a manufacturer you can throw

everything into it.

For 2019 Ford has lowered

the price of Everest. It now sits

at $79,990, and it also gets a lot

more safety kit. Over and above

what we would generally expect

for safety, the newcomer gets

autonomous emergency braking,

and vehicle and pedestrian

detection.

For comfort and convenience

significant items include satellite

navigation, radar cruise control,

full leather trim with heated

front seats, electric sunroof, active

park assist, and keyless entry

and ignition.

Of course, the driver also has

at command the controls for the

four-wheel-drive system, there

are several settings depending

on the type of surface expected

ahead, there is a genuinely low

ratio transfer case combining

to get the vehicle easily into the

gnarly tracks our back country

has to offer.

I didn’t venture off the seal, but

I can report that from previous

experience in the Everest and

Ranger, it is a genuine off-road

vehicle, and one that I’ve felt

comfortable off-the-seal in previous

evaluations. With the type of

suspension and chassis design,

along with 225mm of ground

clearance, the Everest is formidable

off-road.

The new engine also fits well in

any slow speed situation, there’s

a lesson to be learned these

• Price – Ford Everest

Titanium, $79,990

• Dimensions – Length,

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

10-speed automatic

• Performance –

days and that is not to arrive in

Queenstown on a Friday night

at rush hour, the long slow drive

into the town from the Clutha

River bridge is painful, yet the

engine and transmission was

responsive and happy to dawdle

the last 10km.

Ford dealers have long sold

Everest, and Ranger, knowing

they have long had the engines

with the highest capacity in their

respective segments of the market:

“Bigger is better,’’ has been a

catchphrase.

Now it’s time for a change of

direction, and while the 2-litre

unit is honest and up to the mark

in every aspect, buyers may take

some convincing that it’s going to

work as well as the five-cylinder

engine that has powered Ranger,

New Zealand’s best-selling motor

vehicle for the last four years.

F45 Training -

fit for everyone

F45 Rolleston’s

previous 8WC

winner, John.

F45 run 45-minute circuit training classes focused on functional

movements; movements that will benefit you in your everyday life

and in other training/sport.

Our sunniest month is the perfect time

to make the resolution to make 2019 the

year when you take control of your body,

health, and fitness.

F45 Training has been open for seven

months now and is continuing to grow its

'F45 Family’. They have welcomed a few

new casual trainers on board and are very

excited to be taking on their third 8 Week

Challenge (starting 4th Feb) since opening

in June last year.

F45 run 45-minute circuit training

classes focused on functional movements;

movements that will benefit you in your

everyday life and in other training/sport.

There are over 30 different workout

styles, all with different class names,

work-to-rest ratios and exercises. You'll

never do the same workout twice.

“We find that the variety is what keeps

members coming back,” says Xanthe. A

typical programme mixes body weight

exercises with equipment such as kettle

bells, medicine balls and free weights to

make every single muscle work. Each day

has a different focus, with the weekdays

alternating between cardio-based sessions

and strength/resistance-based sessions.

F45 Rolleston offers four eight-week

challenges per year, essentially eight weeks

on four weeks off, throughout the year.

These challenges pair their class-based

workouts with a nutritionally balanced

meal plan, to focus on fat loss and

increasing your overall health and fitness.

Daily meal plans designed by the F45

Nutrition Team are provided to you via the

F45 Challenge website and app.

There are mainstream, vegetarian and

vegan options. Before and after pictures

and body

composition

testing is done

in studio, to

help members

establish goals and maintain motivation

throughout the eight weeks.

There are awesome studio and global

prizes up for grabs for the best

transformations. In their last eight-week

challenge, the winner lost a total of 20.3kgs

of weight and 10.1%fat (16.1kg worth).

“We are really excited to see what

amazing results our members will achieve

over the next eight weeks!” The date for

the next challenge after this is 29th April -

23rd June.

F45 Rolleston is currently offering a twoweek

trial for $20 so those new to F45 can

come and see what all the fuss is about!

Section demand

remains strong

We have 40 sections available at Wilfield at present. These

range from 900m 2 to 6500m 2 and are priced from $225,000.

We also have another 10 coming to the market later this year

Demand for residential sections across

Christchurch and Canterbury remains

strong as indicated by buoyant sales for

December and January.

Hamish Wheelans, director of Gillman

Wheelans, developer of several subdivisions

across Canterbury, said the level of enquiry

and sales indicated that there were plenty of

people still looking to build new homes in

the province.

Yoursection.nz has subdivisions in West

Melton (Preston Downs and Wilfield),

Rolleston (Falcon Landing), Halswell

(Quarry Gate) and Woodend (Two Roads).

“West Melton is a case in point. We have

been developing in this area since 2010

with the launch of Preston

Downs and in more recent

years Wilfield. In Preston

Downs we only have two

sections left in our final

stage. Both of these are

1000m 2 and are priced at

$229,500.

“In Preston Downs

we have created a total

of 360 sections and

the population of the

subdivision stands at

approximately 1000.

The growth of the subdivision reflects

the growth of West Melton. Where once

the West Melton pub was the dominant

building, we now have a magnificent

new Community and Recreation Centre,

thriving primary school, plus a supermarket

and neighbourhood retail precinct. It really

is a growth community and we are heavily

committed through our sponsorship of the

primary school and rugby club,” he said.

Residential development land in West

Melton is restricted and while there is still

land to be developed at Wilfield in future

years, once those stages are complete that

is the limit of development planned for the

area.

“We have 40 sections available at Wilfield

at present. These range from 900m 2 to

6500m 2 and are priced from $225,000.

We also have another 10 coming to the

market later this year on Ridgeland Way,

off Kingdowne Drive.”

Wheelans said that the completion of the

Southern Motorway will be well received as

it is expected to sharply reduce the travel

time into Christchurch.

Gardening

Inject colour into your garden with geraniums

• By Henri Ham

WANT TO inject some bright

colour into a super sunny spot in

your garden? How about planting

some geraniums?

These hardy, sun-loving plants

are perfect for those prime spots

in your garden that often get too

hot or are slightly too exposed for

other flowers.

Geraniums are a cute lowspreading

plant, with flowers that

push above its foliage – like little

posies.

Try violet and bulls eye mix

varieties, they bloom in pinks,

reds, and oranges, but if you’re

after a classic white they should

be in garden centres around

March.

Now, to plant your seedlings.

Choose a well-drained, moderately

sunny spot – geraniums like

four to six hours sun a day. I like

to dig some compost or general

fertiliser through the garden first,

to give them the best possible

start.

Dig small holes 8cm deep,

roughly 25 cm apart. If you’re

after suggestions on what to grow

with your geraniums, livingstone

daisies, lobelia and alyssum are

my top picks. They all like the

same conditions and look lovely

together.

Give your geraniums a good

initial watering, and keep this up

for the first few weeks to really

help them get established. Once

you’ve got them going, you can

relax a bit more on how much

you water.

In around four to six weeks

you’ll start to see come colour

coming through on top of their

dark leaves. Deadheading your

blooms will encourage more to

come through. And pinching the

stems will promote bushier rather

than leggier flowers.

If you’re not sure what pinching

is – it’s simply breaking off the top

2cm of the growing tip of a plant

to encourage it to grow out wider,

VIVID:

Geraniums

in pots or

as bedding

plants.

before it grows up. The same

way you pinch off the very top of

your basil (and other herbs) so it

doesn’t go to seed.

Geraniums make great bedding

plants, but are also perfect for

pots. If you plant in pots, always

start with a fresh, good-quality

potting mix.

Adding stones or old broken

pots at the bottom of the pot will

help with the drainage.

If your pots are in an exposed

concrete area think about how

hot they will get during the day.

You can always elevate them

onto some wooden batons or

bricks so they don’t conduct as

much heat.

Painting the inside of a

pot can also help retain its moisture.

Remember to check what

sort of paint or seal you’re using

first and whether it’s appropriate

for plants.

Geraniums also make for a

SAFER ACCESS TO INTELLIGRO

Heading north on Main South Road you will use the

Weedons Ross Road off ramp. Manion Road is just before

the railway lines on the left-hand side.

If you are heading south along Main South Road, then turn right into Curraghs

Road, and Manion Road is on your left just before the railway line. You cannot

miss our big green sign. Our team look forward to seeing you in store!

With the soaring temperatures it is a constant

battle to keep your plants and lawn in great

condition. It might be tempting to water them

through the day, but it is most effective to

water in the early morning or later evening.

While watering your lawn during the day

won’t harm it, it is very wasteful as the water

will mostly evaporate – your plant’s leaves

however - these may burn if the water stays on

them with the blaring sun on them all day.

Invest in a good-quality sprinkler, hose and

water timer. These will be great

for late night

watering. Simply

set the timer and

head off to bed –

easy.

We have a great

range in store so

come down and

have a look!

HANDY TIPS

• Consider getting a bird bath, or putting a container

out for them to play around in. they’ll love you for it.

• Remove tomato and strawberry laterals as they

appear. They serve no purpose so remove them so

the plant can get all of the benefits of the water and

nutrients for growing their produce.

• Remove all weeds as they appear so they don’t steal

water and nutrients from your plants

• Grab a paddling pool (the plastic clam shells are

great) for your furry friends. They will be feeling the

heat just as much as us and they will love playing in

the water.

Keep planting lettuce seedlings to ensure supply

• By Henri Ham

LETTUCE SALADS have been a

headliner in my kitchen lately.

This hot summer heat we’ve

been having has kept me busy

watering in the garden, but there’s

been a lot of harvesting taking

place too. This also means I’ve

had to replant lettuce seedlings

(every few weeks) to continue my

prolific supply.

The good thing is, even for the

most novice of gardeners, you

can’t go wrong planting a few

lettuces. They’re simple to grow,

quick to produce and take up

relatively little room.

I plant my lettuces all year

round, but really ramp it up from

August through to February. To

ensure I don’t get bored of any

one type, I like to constantly mix

up the varieties I plant.

Buttercrunch and cos are great

for picking off their loose leaves

as you need them. Drunken

woman and great lakes are a

larger, more classic-shaped lettuce,

that I remember from my

younger days.

What I also remember is, back

then you’d never consider picking

a few leaves here and there. You’d

always harvest the whole lettuce

head at once. How the times have

changed.

HARDY: Lettuce is easy to grow and makes a good companion

plant.

A new lettuce variety this summer

is tom thumb. It’s the perfect

little lettuce to pop in between

rows of other plants. It grows

small heads (about the size of a

baseball), which are ideal as a

gourmet lettuce for one. Contrary

to what I just said about picking

leaves off your lettuces as you

need them, tom thumb is harvested

all at once.

Tom thumb has a lovely mild,

sweet taste. But the reason it’s a

great lettuce to grow at this time

of year is it tolerates high temperatures

very well, and resists bolting.

And, being so small, makes it

a great candidate to plant in a pot,

or alongside other plants such as

leeks or beetroot.

Once you’ve got your seedlings,

look for a well-drained and

sheltered place to plant them. I

like to dig in some new compost

and sheep pallets at this point too.

Then dig some little holes – 3cm

deep and 15cm apart.

After this, simply water regularly

and watch for slugs. Smaller

pots need to be watered daily

right now or, if you’ve planted

in the ground test with your

finger for dryness. If you get one

knuckle deep and it’s dry, you’ll

know its time to water.

And for the slugs – I recommend

slug ‘beer bait’. That’s if

you’ve got any spare beer in the

house right now. It’s also a fun

activity to do with the kids.

In around four to six weeks

your tom thumbs should be ready

to be harvested. I recommend

suggest combining them with

grated zucchini, basil, parmesan

and your favourite dressing for a

fresh twist on your summer salad.

Bon appetite.

Looking for a Property?

What really counts

You are in the market for a new property,

scrolling the Internet, examining

properties for sale and zeroing in on

those with potential. They might be

in locations that offer cheaper land,

larger houses, or convenience to work

or school. You may have visited show

homes and open homes becoming

confused, overwhelmed or swept

away with emotional factors like having

everything new, or extra features such

as three car garaging.

To be happy with your choice, list the

features that you need, considering:

; Family space – Is there room for

the children to play indoors and

for television and entertainment

units? Should this be open plan or

separated?

; Kitchen – What needs to be in your

kitchen? How serious are you about

a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim or

something that offers a practical

solution to the way you use your

kitchen?

; Bedroom sizes – What are optimum

sizes? Smaller bedrooms may

translate to slightly lower building

costs while extra space can be

useful. When looking at existing

homes, consider whether the size of

each bedroom is sufficient.

; Garaging – A standard double

garage once two cars are parked

there offers little space for the toys.

What toys do you have and could

they live with the lawnmower in a

garden shed, a cheaper option to

three car garaging? If the budget

allows and a larger garage with

workshop is important, make it a

selection priority.

; Size of land – Lifestyle properties

offer space for children, pets,

hobbies, an expansive garden and

perhaps a home-run business but

they require work so are not for

everyone and a compact section

might be more sensible if a tight

budget or busy lifestyle.

; Bathrooms – Second and third

bathrooms are great in homes with

teenagers and a wet shower room is

ideal for young children. A bath might

be fashionable though is often not

used and its absence could mean a

more spacious bathroom.

; Laundry – Would a laundry in the

garage do the job?

; Storage – How much storage do you

need? Weigh up what can truly be

stored in the garage once vehicles

are in, a preference in winter.

Garages vary in size so check the

size to ensure your vehicles will fit.

Look also at where else the house

offers storage capacity such as in

hall cupboards, a large hot water

cylinder cupboard, wardrobes (check

their width and depth), walk-in robe,

attic storage trusses, as well as the

potential for hooks and shelving in

the garage for bikes, tools, garden

equipment and even kayaks.

; Off-street parking – How many

vehicles can be parked on the

driveway? Will this space be

sufficient?

; Garden - Is there sufficient space

for your children to play or for

entertaining?

A checklist will allow you to determine

what will suit your needs, the point of

the exercise, saving you time looking at

properties or potential house designs

while assisting you to decide whether

to buy a new or existing home with

both options having advantages and

disadvantages.

How to sell your

parents’ home

There are lots of tough things about

getting older. One of the most confronting

is realising that the people who raised you

are now in need of help themselves. Selling

the home of your parents, particularly

if they are in poor health, can be a very

fraught time if you’re not prepared for it.

If your parents are getting to the stage

where their much-loved family home is

too much for them, it’s a good idea to start

talking to them about what they want to

do before you start thinking about the

steps you need to take to help them out.

1. LEARN ABOUT THE LEGAL

STUFF You need to find out as much as

you can about your parents’ home and

legal affairs. Do they own the home, or is

it owned by a family trust? They may be

of the era when there was only one name

(usually the man’s) on the title deed – and

it may make things easier down the track

if that is updated. If the property is owned

by a family trust, you’ll need to talk to the

trust’s lawyer about how to proceed.

Are your parents’ wills up to date? Is

there a power of attorney identified in case

they become incapacitated? These can be

uncomfortable conversations to have, but

it’s far better to discuss these issues now.

It may be that your parents haven’t dealt

with a lawyer since they bought the house

– it’s a good idea to get one on the team

now. Under the Anti-Money Laundering

legislation, confirming the identity of

parties is now a more significant step in

property transactions. If your parents

don’t have a passport or other modern

forms of identification you may need to go

through a more involved process with the

lawyer. It’s a good idea to find out about

this earlier in the process so there are no

surprises later on.

2. LEARN ABOUT THE PROPERTY

It can be helpful to get an idea of the

current market value of the home before

you start planning to sell – and planning

for your parents’ next move. You can

research online, pay for a valuation by

a registered property valuer or ask local

real estate agents for a current market

appraisal. Be realistic about what can be

done to get the best price and consider

whether there are time constraints. We

recommend getting a valuation done

by a registered property valuer if you or

another family member are thinking they

might buy the property. This is also useful

if family members have differing views of

its value.

3. LEARN ABOUT THE PROCESS

Do some informal market research

about real estate agents in the area and

arrange to talk to a couple of them about

your parents’ situation. Unless they have

specifically requested otherwise, make sure

your parents are part of this conversation.

Many real estate agents will have had a

lot of experience dealing with people in

similar situations and they will recognise

this is a potentially stressful time.

Licensed real estate agents are obligated

to act in good faith and deal fairly with

both buyers and sellers. This means they

must use their good judgement when

dealing with older people. If neither you

or your siblings live close by, it can be

useful to identify a trusted person who can

accompany your parents to any meetings

with the real estate agent or lawyer. Ask for

all meetings to be documented so you are

all on the same page. This can be especially

useful if you are having to convey

information to other family members. Any

documents requiring signing, such as the

agency or sale and purchase agreement,

should be reviewed by the lawyer first to

ensure your parents are making the best

decisions.

Before you decide to proceed with an

agent, ask them how they propose to

market the property and arrange any

viewings or open homes.

4. LEARN TO TAKE ONE STEP AT A

TIME If there are minor jobs that need to

be done, or major decluttering, work out a

plan to get this done in a way that doesn’t

cause your parents undue stress. Selling a

property is a bit like eating the proverbial

elephant. Do it one little bit at a time and

you’ll get the job done.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Stylish and adaptable

Optimum indoor, outdoor flow with sun

and shelter are quintessential elements of

Today Homes’ Maddison showhome in

Rolleston.

One of two homes featured by Today

Homes in Faringdon’s showhome village,

the Maddison showhome is perfect if

wanting sun, shade and wind protection,

ensuring there’s always a place to entertain

or escape for a moment of quiet.

The layout of this 221sqm home will

have you thinking outside the square.

With scope to change size or features, this

home is a perfect option for any budget.

Many ideas have been incorporated

into this stunning French Country

showhome, unique as a residential home

or equally suited to a lifestyle property. It

is therefore not surprising Today Homes

have had many happy clients choosing the

Maddison layout.

With both living and bedroom wings,

this home is perfectly angled to capitalise

on the sun while also offering great shelter

and privacy for outdoor living.

French Country inspired décor is

evident throughout this three-bedroom

plus office (which might easily be a fourth

bedroom) spacious home. Add in the overheight

stud, higher windows and ceilings,

combination of Linea cladding, metro

tiled shape hip roof with gable features,

and unique angled design and you have a

home that stands out.

In a large part of the kitchen and dining

area there is a hardwearing and practical

floating timber floor, ideal for family

living. The French Country inspired

kitchen has a walk-in pantry, island

with basin and tower faucet along with

a specific seating area at the island and

plenty of preparation/cooking space.

Accessed through large double French

doors, the lounge offers options as a

media, reading or entertaining room and

with triple sliders out to a courtyard this

room is likely to get plenty of use. Another

seating area can be found in the living area

where sliders also access the outdoors.

Tiling and wallpaper feature throughout

this home with complete luxury as can be

seen in the main bathroom and ensuite

where wall to ceiling (as well as floor)

tiling are a feature. In the ensuite there are

double vanity bowls and a walk-in tiled

shower, which comes with a glass door

option. The generous main bathroom has a

freestanding bath taking centre stage while

allowing room to get behind.

There is plenty of storage for those

with a penchant for clothes, in the master

bedroom’s walk-in wardrobe where builtin

shelving/drawers take away the need for

furniture in the bedroom itself.

This is a bright and light home. With the

potential to increase or decrease its overall

size, the Maddison is perfect as a family

home as well as for couple or single living.

Today Homes’ Maddison and its sister

showhome the Burnham are open every

day of the week from 12 noon until 4pm,

at 576 and 578 East Maddisons Road.

[Edition datE]

What can I do if there’s a

problem with my new home?

Buyer’s remorse is a common affliction

in January, but for most people it relates

to spending too much on Christmas

festivities and presents. Regretting buying

something as big as a house is a much

bigger deal that can have a serious impact

on your family and financial wellbeing.

Real Estate Authority (REA) chief

executive Kevin Lampen-Smith says this

is why it’s important for buyers to do as

much homework as they can before buying

a property.

“We believe it’s much better to spend a

few hundred dollars on an independent

report by an accredited building inspector

than face having to spend thousands of

dollars on fixing any issues after the fact,”

Lampen-Smith says.

“It can be tempting to settle for the easy

option of using a pre-prepared report,

but if you haven’t paid for it yourself you

have no way of ensuring that it’s legitimate

or being able to take action against the

inspector for an inadequate assessment.”

If you’re looking to buy, Lampen-Smith

says it’s smart to find out as much as you

can about the property, including getting

someone to help you understand the

outcome of any report on the building or

land.

“In some cases, issues are noted on

property reports but buyers are in such a

hurry that they miss them,” Lampen-Smith

says.

If a report uncovers an issue, he suggests

getting legal advice first if you want to

negotiate with the seller on price.

If you end up buying a property and

discover a serious issue that you think the

seller or the real estate agent failed to tell

you about, Lampen-Smith says the first

step is to write down what happened when

you bought the property.

“Gather all the relevant documentation,

such as the building report, the LIM

and the sale and purchase agreement,”

Lampen-Smith says.

“If the property was sold by a licensed

real estate agent, make notes of any

conversations you had with them. If the

property was sold privately, make notes of

any dealings with the seller. Add any new

information you have about the property,

such as a building report or assessment

that notes the problems you’ve found.”

Think too about what your best-case

scenario outcome is: do you want an

apology, compensation, or remediation (or

all three)?

Lampen-Smith says it’s important to

get legal advice to fully understand your

options.

“A lawyer will advise you on whether

you have a case against the seller and what

your next move should be, based on the

information you’ve gathered,” he says.

“If appropriate, they can help you

negotiate with the seller or act against

them. Be aware that you may not be in a

very strong position unless you can prove

that the seller or the real estate agent

knowingly covered up the issue.”

If it appears that the real estate agent is

responsible in some way, Lampen-Smith

says it’s best that you deal with them

directly.

“If you can’t resolve things this way, the

REA handles complaints against licensed

real estate agents and we can also help you

understand expectations on real estate

agents regarding disclosure of property

defects. Check out rea.govt.nz for more

information on making complaints.”
