Rolleston

fireworks

event to

continue

• By Anan Zaki

THE ROLLESTON fireworks

show will go ahead this year.

Organisers of the annual event

met last Tuesday and confirmed

it will go ahead – with or without

the help of the district council.

Last month, Selwyn Times

reported that the fireworks was

unlikely to go

ahead this year

after the two

members of

its organising

committee announced

their

retirement.

The organisers

– the Rolleston

Residents’

Association

Jens

Christensen

Fireworks Subcommittee – asked

the district council to help run the

event because of the retirements,

but the council said it did not have

the ability to run the event.

Former subcommittee

chairman Jens Christensen said

he is retiring due to ill health and

secretary Trisha Pullin is also

retiring – which meant the event

had no one running it.

GREAT NEWS on page 1 today - the

Rolleston Fireworks will go ahead this year.

The event has been in doubt after the two

people who made up the Rolleston Residents’

Association fireworks subcommittee

organisers decided to retire.

That left no one to run the event and the spotlight went on the

district council to take it over.

But that went down like a lead balloon and the fireworks – a

big wheel in the district’s calendar – looked like it was fizzling

out.

That would have been a travesty given its popularity. But

behind the scene talks have reignited the issue and the residents’

association has now stepped back up to the plate.

Common sense has prevailed and everyone is happy.

Armed police at Anzac services

• By Anan Zaki

ARMED POLICE will be

guarding the Rolleston Anzac

service tomorrow.

Organisers of the service, the

Rolleston Residents’ Association,

told the Selwyn Times it has

received confirmation from

police that officers will be at the

event.

Police

refused

to go into

the details

due to

“operational

reasons.”

But

Peter Cooper

Canterbury

Rural Area

Commander

Inspector Peter Cooper said all

officers who are present at Anzac

Day services will be armed due

to increased security measures

following the March 15 terror

attack in Christchurch.

Said Rolleston Residents’

Association chairwoman Leonie

MacLachlan: “I have spoken

to police and they will have a

presence.”

Lincoln Community Anzac

Day Service Committee

chairman Ian Collins said he

did not know if police would be

present at its service.

Malvern RSA secretary Terry

Hutchinson said he has not been

able to confirm if police will be

present at the Darfield service.

Inspector Cooper said the

increased security levels are not

permanent.

“Things will settle down

again and we will get back to

a norm but just while we’re in

heightened security, there will

be an armed presence at some

of the events,” Inspector Cooper

said.

Police could not commit to

every service in the district due

to stretched resources.

“There are over 50 events in

Canterbury for Anzac Day so

we can’t do them all,” Inspector

Cooper said.

“We will put extra security

around the Christchurch ones

and some in the major township

ones [in the district],” Inspector

Cooper said.

•Anzac Day services, p12

HIGH SECURITY: Armed

police are likely to be

present at the Anzac Day

services in major townships

in the district.

Police said they were called

the occupants received minor

injuries. St John said one

ambulance attended, but was not

required. Traffic was also blocked

on Main South Rd near Bankside

after a nose to tail crash. The

crash happened about 10am last

Wednesday. The crash blocked

the north bound lane of Main

South Rd. No one was injured

and a cause will be investigated, a

police spokeswoman said.

COMMUNITY FUNDS

Applications for community

funds close next Tuesday.

Funding from the district council

is available to support events

School board says no financial issue

• By Anan Zaki

ELLESMERE COLLEGE says it

has cash reserves to navigate the

financial difficulties they are in.

Last week Selwyn Times

revealed school principal Ronan

Bass had emailed parents

informing them of its “difficult

financial position.”

Mr Bass said in the email

the school

is forecast

for a fourth

consecutive

year of deficit,

caused in part

by $78,000 in

unpaid course

Mark Maddren

fees and course

donations.

He said in

the email the school is at risk

of being placed under statutory

financial management, meaning

its finances would be managed

by external agents.

But school’s board of trustees

chairman Mark Maddren has

now told the Selwyn Times it has

“plenty” of cash reserves.

Two years ago the school had

cash reserves of $318,354.

When asked how much cash

reserves the school currently

has, Mr Maddren referred the

question to Mr Bass as it was a

“management” subject and not a

“governance” subject.

STILL SAFE: Ellesmere College board of trustees chairman Mark Maddren says the school has

cash reserves to overcome its current financial situation.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

Mr Bass would not answer

what the cash situation currently

was, saying: ‘‘I refer you to the

board chair’s response on our

school Facebook page regarding

this. The annual accounts are audited

independently before being

provided to the MOE (Ministry

of Education) in May and as such

has not yet been ratified and

submitted.’’

The school recorded deficits of

($70,579) in 2016 and ($17,170)

in 2017.

Mr Maddren also said the

school is “not in financial woe”

even though statutory financial

management could be a possibility

in the future.

“In the long term, if we carried

on with deficits then yes it would

be, but we’re not in financial woe

at the moment and we’re just

being prudent about moving

forward into the future,” Mr

Maddren said.

He also said the principal’s

email – which discussed the

school’s current financial situation

– did not mean it was in

financial woe.

“We’re just being frugal and

want the community to realise

that things are tight and we’re

doing things to stop that,” Mr

Maddren said.

Move for

Arthur’s Pass

visitor centre

THE DEPARTMENT of

Conservation has moved its

visitor centre services ahead of a

planned upgrade to the Arthur’s

Pass National Park Visitor

Centre later this year.

The temporary visitor centre

is located next to Arthur’s Pass

Motel and Lodge in the national

park village.

Work will start later this year

on the planned upgrade of the

Arthur’s Pass National Park

Visitor Centre to bring it up

to 100 per cent of the National

Building Standards.

“The upgraded visitor centre

will be an exciting opportunity

to help visitors and the local

community to connect with

conservation,” DOC operations

manager, Kingsley Timpson said.

DOC said it had been

planning a full upgrade of the

building for “some time”.

Following the 2010/2011

earthquakes, engineers certified

the building as safe for public

and staff use but with some areas

closed to access.

“Interim improvements were

made to the building at the time

with isolation walls added and

new beams inserted to ensure

staff and visitors were safe,” Mr

Timpson said.

•From page 1

The residents’ association was

previously unable to find new

organisers, but the situation

appeared to have changed after

last Tuesday’s meeting.

“We can confirm there will

be a Rolleston Fireworks 2019.

Discussions are ongoing with

council – we haven’t finished

our dialogue with council [for

the 2020 event and beyond],” Mr

Christensen said.

He would not provide further

details about this year’s event and

said more information will be

shared at a later time.

The district council said it

could not comment on the

fireworks until Friday, as the

person dealing with the fireworks

subcommittee is away.

Last month, district council

chief executive David Ward said

the fireworks display is not one of

its “core services.”

He said last month: “During

the summer months, council

already running a significant list

of community events across the

district, and to add the Rolleston

fireworks would simply be to

add to the exhaustive list,

and stretch our limited

resources.”

The district council staff are

due to provide a formal update

on its position on the fireworks

the next council meeting in

May.

GOING AHEAD: The annual

Rolleston Fireworks will

go ahead this year after

organisers met last Tuesday.

TWO STORIES: ECan’s Darfield bus service is performing better than its

Leeston bus service, which is still at risk of being cancelled. ​

Leeston bus still

at risk of axing

• By Anan Zaki

PASSENGER numbers

on Leeston’s trial bus

service remain too low to

sustain, says Environment

Canterbury.

ECan said last week the

average passenger numbers

on its daily service to

the township was at 27

passengers, down from last

month’s reported average

of 28.

ECan is also running

a trial from

Darfield to central

Christchurch.

Mr Gibbon said

the service averages

41 passengers

everyday,

down from last

month’s reported

average of 47

passengers.

Last month, Selwyn

Times reported the Leeston

service was at risk of being

axed due to low patronage.

The service is currently

in trial phase and planned

to continue through the

winter. The trials started

in January.

Stewart

Gibbon

Said ECan senior

manager public transport

Stewart Gibbon: “The

Leeston numbers are

still lower than what we

would like to see. Unless

there is better uptake, the

passenger numbers aren’t

high enough to justify

continuing the service

long-term.”

Mr Gibbon said there is

no set number of required

passengers to make it

viable, as money received

from ECan’s bus fare

system is factored

into the route’s

sustainability.

“It is not as simple

as there being an

ideal [passenger]

number. Other

factors come into

account such as

different fare types and

zones,” he said.

The bus leaves Leeston

in the morning to central

Christchurch and returns

to Leeston in the late

afternoon.

Mr Gibbon said it is

afternoon times in Leeston

due to public feedback it

received.

“The community surveys

we did before starting

the trial services showed

the strongest interest was

in running trips at peak

times,” he said.

“The Darfield figures

are better, however, there

is still room for growth

on this service. As well as

seeing continued growth,

we’re also looking to see

that the level of usage is

sustained over the autumn

and winter months to

demonstrate long-term

sustainability of the

service,” he said.

Park and ride on schedule

CONSTRUCTION works

on the park and ride

project on Kidman St,

Rolleston are continuing as

scheduled.

All stormwater and light

ducting has now been

installed.

Preparation for the

installation of the final

Construction works on

the footpaths is also set

to start and the car park

is planned to be sealed

Selwyn MP

Small towns need to thrive

SELWYN IS typical of many

regions of New Zealand in having

large open spaces and small rural

communities.

These communities are

essential to our economy as they

are the driving force behind our

primary sector, which contributes

more than $45 billion annually in

exports and feeds more than 40

million people.

In order for our primary sector

to contribute we need our small

rural communities to be thriving.

This means they need access

to quality healthcare and other

essential services to ensure they are

viable and desirable places to live.

Since the current Government

has come into power we’ve seen a

lack of focus on these areas with a

number of policies making things

tough. Rural health is a major

concern and it is hard to get people

to commit to living in isolated

areas if they feel that they may not

be able to access the services they

need. For example, the Government

denied funding for Rural

Health Alliance Aotearoa New

Zealand, an organisation that

plays a valuable and vital role in

addressing mental health needs.

Mental health is a significant

issue in rural areas as farmers

are deal with physical isolation,

uncertainties around unfavourable

weather and swings in the

prices of New Zealand’s exports

of farm commodities. The impact

of proposed vocational education

reforms on our ITOs could also

see St John’s rural ambulance

services get cut, meaning that

these areas become even more

isolated from quality healthcare.

The reason for this is that St John

receives $1 million a year from

the Industry Training Fund,

which also funds ITOs, and this

fund is up for review as part of

the Government’s proposed tertiary

education reforms. This $1

million is used to train rural and

remote volunteers.

If St John no longer receives

funding for rural volunteer

training, this will be a bad thing

for health services in our rural

regions.

The roll-on effects of such

decisions, as well as proposed

taxes on farmers, are starting to

permeate through tight-knit rural

communities and their local

economies are starting to slow.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Exotic citrus pest

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

entomology (insects and other invertebrates).

Each week he introduces a new species found

in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims

to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the

variety of living things around us. Check out

the full list of invertebrates found at

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

THE BLACK scale or olive

scale is an exotic pest known

scientifically as Saissetia oleae.

Mature female scales are

black, 3-5mm long and have a

characteristic raised H pattern on

their top.

They are a significant pest in

all citrus growing countries, but

since found in New Zealand in

1885 they have been recorded on

at least 23 native and 20 exotic

plants respectively.

Hosts include citrus, olive,

pittosporum, kiwifruit, Mexican

orange blossom, pear, grapes,

rose, rosemary and pseudopanax,

to name a few.

Heavy infestations can reduce

plant vigour, but the honeydew

these scales excrete onto leaves

and fruit below can also be an

issue.

The sugary honeydew is

attacked by black sooty mould,

which makes plants look

unsightly but which can also

reduce photosynthesis and

potentially kill the plant.

The scales are usually

parthenogenic, meaning they can

reproduce without fertilisation, as

aphids can.

Scales overwinter as immature

females and develop during the

summer, producing only one

generation per year.

Large numbers of eggs

are produced beneath the

female between November

and December, which hatch

December to January.

The immatures, called crawlers,

align along leaf veins to feed on

the sap.

Families get involved in golf

• By Jacob Page

THE SELWYN Futures Golf Hub

is allowing “time-poor” families a

chance to taste the sport together.

​The initiative, launched by

Canterbury Golf in February

is aimed at getting more young

people and their families onto the

golf course.

​Clubs involved include

Charteris Bay, Ellesmere,

Greendale, Hororata, Lincoln,

McLeans Island and Tai Tapu.

Membership is open to

anyone under the age of 19 with

memberships for parents and

guardians to play with their child

at any of the clubs.

Members also get given an

apparel pack, an official New

Zealand Golf number and

handicap as well as subsidised

coaching as well as off-peak

playing rights.

Dave Williams and his two

sons two sons, Benji, 8, and

Joshua, 5, are members of the hub

after starting off at Wakatipu.

“I’m time poor, I’d rather go out

and play with my boys.

“To be playing golf with my

boys, is a bit of a dream and who

knows when it will end because

that’s up to them but they’re

sports mad,” Williams said.

He said another positive of

the concept was the change to

“At this age, we are expecting

themselves, that’s all that matters.”

Williams’ Dad, Graham, is a

members at McLeans Island so he

said the times where he has had

three generations on the same

golf course is “very special.”

SELWYN TIMES

“The important thing is for it to

be affordable and to play a range

of golf courses.

“This suits me and my boys and

the coaches tell me that both of

them hit and nice ball so that’s

good enough for me,” he said.

“I don’t want to make time for

golf, unlike my Dad, so if I can

squeeze in some time to play with

my boys on a Saturday or Sunday

then that’s great.”

High hopes for basketballer

after winning national title

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN University

basketballer Connie Poletti

hopes her third appearance

at the FISU World University

League Finals in China in

November will be a lucky charm.

​The Lincoln team of Poletti,

Ajiah Pepe, Lucy Brown and

Rosalia Samia won the national

title for a third

time a fortnight

ago, after

going through

the two-day

tournament

in Auckland

unbeaten.

​On the

Connie Poletti

surface, it may

have looked

comfortable, that team had to

survive a semi-final against Canterbury

University, which they

won 20-18 before downing their

Auckland rivals in the decider

14-12.

“It was bloody tough this year,

that’s for sure, so to be able to

hold our nerve, was great. I feel

like everyone lifted to our level

and wanted to beat us,” she said.

“It was fun but stressful.”

Rosie and Lucy will be going

on their first world tournament.

​The 22-year-old said after

finishing 14th both years, she

wanted to get more wins in 2019.

“The last couple of years we

WINNERS: The Lincoln University 3x3 basketball team will

take on some of the best university teams in the world, in

China, later this year.

SPORT

were competitive for the first seven

minutes and then let things

slip for the last three minutes,”

she said.

“Our scoring dropped, our fitness

dropped and our mental effort

dropped and you can’t afford

that against the world’s best.”

Poletti said her team played

a physical style of game which

countries took time to adjust

to.

“We are a challenge to teams

but we need that fitness and ability

to finish under pressure.

“One of the advantages of

our team is how tough we play,

especially compared to the

European teams.”

Poletti said the strength of

3x3 basketball was in the Asian

countries.

“Their ball-handling and control

is next level.

“Ajiah and Lucy are good ballhandlers

while Rosie can post-up

like me and use her size and

strength.”

The draw and exact date in

November is yet to be confirmed

but with three of the team

playing for the Canterbury

Wildcats, the focus will shift

back to the traditional game

until at least June.

Athlete on a mission

• By Jacob Page

PROMISING LINCOLN High

School triathlete Reece Rush

could be forgiven for being

behind in his school work over

the past month.

​The 16-year-old has been

competing against athletes two

years older than him as he looks

move himself up the ranks and

closer to the world championship

qualifying mark over the next 12

months.

“I’ve certainly missed a few

days of school but it’s worth it,”

he said.

Reece competed in the junior

athlete category of the Oceania

Championships in Tasmania

against older, more experienced

athletes and finished 37th, last

month.

He then competed in the

under-19 category of the New

Zealand Secondary Schools

Championships a fortnight ago

and finished 17th.

“Tasmania was a world championship

qualifier and while I

didn’t expect to be at that level

yet, it was a chance to test myself

and see where I am.

“It was a step up, more professional

and gave me an idea of

what I need to do.”

“In New Plymouth, I had a

strong swim but I got a bit of

cramp on the bike leg which carried

on through the first few laps

of the run which meant I blew out

a bit.

“I can still come back next year

and look to go better.

MOTIVATED: Lincoln High

School’s Reece Rush is

hoping a strong winter training

regiment will set him up for a

big summer campaign.

PHOTO: ROB RUSH

“I now have all winter to train

hard and get stronger.

“I’ll do some road cycling and

some cross country running

before my season gets underway

in November again.”

Reece said he wants to keep improving

his swimming so he can

get a clean exit out of the water

into the transition to the bike.

Once the school holidays

finish, Reece will be back behind

his school desk, at least for the

winter.

New toilets at Castle Hill Village

New toilets have been installed at Castle Hill Village.

The new standalone toilet block, with three unisex toilets, replaces

the single public toilet in the Castle Hill Community Centre.

The new facility, which cost $230,000, opened on 18 April.

Property and Commercial Manager Douglas Marshall says

increased visitors to Castle Hill and an increase in traffic meant

there was a need to add new public toilets to the township, while

the previous toilet was due for an upgrade.

New Zealand

Music Month

New Zealand Music Month is back at Selwyn Libraries next month.

Residents can get involved and make some noise with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra

(CSO) every Friday in May.

The orchestra will be bringing a one-hour interactive show, designed for children aged two to six, to

all four district libraries, introducing each instrument in the orchestra, and mixing elements of song,

stories and dance.

The shows are a great opportunity for children to see the instruments up close and join in. The

CSO Music Trails shows will be held at Darfield Library on 3 May, Lincoln Library 10 May, Rolleston

Library 17 May and Leeston Library 24 May. A caregiver is required for all children.

If you prefer to listen, there will be Saturday concerts hosted at each library across the month.

Local artists Picking at the Remnants, Moonflower, Alex and Patrick, and Hanna and Connor will

be playing acoustic sessions from 11.30am–1pm, including breaks.

All Music Month events in Selwyn are free, with no bookings required, however spaces are limited.

See selwynlibraries.co.nz for more details.

Selwyn commercial building consents increase

The growth in the commercial building sector continues to surge in Selwyn.

The latest quarterly economic update from analysts Infometrics showed non-residential building

consents to the value of $342 million were issued during the year to December 2018. This means the

value of consents increased by 143% over the same period.

The update showed 270 new residential building consents were issued in Selwyn in the December 2018

quarter, compared with 217 in the same quarter last year. On an annual basis, the number of residential

consents decreased by 18% compared with the same 12-month period last year.

Building Manager Vanessa Mitchell says Selwyn District Council statistics show building growth in the

district remains strong with about 50% of building consent work relating to new dwellings and about

10% relating to new commercial and industrial buildings. “The residential market remains strong due

the availability of serviced land in new and developing subdivisions,” Mrs Mitchell says.

Many of the commercial buildings currently being built are large-scale projects located in the Iport

development in Rolleston, Mrs Mitchell says. “We also have buildings either damaged, or affected

by the earthquakes which are subject to earthquake prone legislation that are progressing with

strengthening works, upgrades and, or rebuilds.”

Selwyn’s continuing population growth is also contributing to an increase in consent applications for

building projects such as new schools, retail shopping centres, petrol stations and community centres.

Anzac Day Council closures and services

Council headquarters in Rolleston will be closed on Anzac Day, Thursday 25 April.

If Thursday is your usual refuse bin collection day, then your collections will occur on Saturday 27 April instead.

Pines Resource Recovery Park will be open from 1–4.30pm.

Lincoln Event Centre will be open from 1–4pm for an Anzac Day service. Rolleston Community Centre

will be open in the morning for an Anzac Day service. West Melton Community and Recreation Centre

and all Selwyn Libraries will be closed.

Selwyn Aquatic Centre will open from 1–8pm. Aquafit will not run.

Council pools operating to top

safety standards

Safety standards at Selwyn pools have been recognised with

three Council pools now accredited with the country’s leading

safety certificate.

Darfield and Southbridge pools have become accredited by the

Poolsafe Quality Management Scheme (Poolsafe) for the first time,

while the Selwyn Aquatic Centre has also been reaccredited.

Poolsafe is an independent assessment of public pools to ensure

that their operations and facilities are safe.

“It shows that we’re operating to the best possible practice in New

Zealand,” Aquatic Facilities Manager James Richmond says.

“It’s quite a detailed process on what we would need to provide,

checking water quality and testing procedures, safety processes

and staff training and qualifications.”

Darfield and Southbridge pools began the process to become

accredited in October 2018, updating policies and developing

new policies where necessary, training staff and testing that

everything worked.

The processes and policies were checked by Recreation Aotearoa,

which also did site visits to the pools in February.

We’ve reached an exciting milestone in the Rolleston town centre

redevelopment with detailed designs for the roading and public

Prebbleton teen impressive

at formidable Aussie track

IT TOOK just two races for

Prebbleton driver Jaden Ransley

to establish himself as a genuine

contender in the Australian

Toyota 86 Racing Series.

Racing at the opening round

of the championship at Philip

Island in Victoria, Ransley

captured a

race win and

a podium in

three races.

After strong

showings in

practice, the

17-year-old

managed to

Jaden Ransley

qualify fifth

a in a field

of 40 cars. It

got even better once racing got

under way, with Ransley taking

third in the first race after a dice

with V8 Supercars legend Garth

Tander.

In the second race Ransley

went even better and claimed his

maiden win in the Australian

championship. In Sunday’s final

race Ransley was forced to retire

after another driver collided

with him.

“I’m incredibly satisfied with

the performance that myself and

HOT PROSPECT: Jaden Ransley (53) claimed a race win at the

opening round of the Australian Toyota 86 Racing Series.

the Liam McAdam Motorsport

team showed this weekend,” said

Ransley.

“We’ve shown that we aren’t

here to play tiddlywinks and

we’ve also shown that we have

the pace to fight for race wins

and podiums. Winning race

two was a moment I will never

forget. To be battling wheel to

wheel with Garth Tander was an

incredible experience and something

that I learned a lot from.”

“Unfortunately we ended the

weekend on a low after being

spun out by another driver and

getting stuck in the gravel trap.

But there are a huge amount of

positives to take from the weekend.

For now we’re counting

down the days to continue some

more awesome racing in a few

months in Townsville.”

•The next round of the

championship takes part in

Townsville from July 5-7.

REPRESENTATIVE: Tony Worthington scored New Zealand’s

only points when they took on an under-14 Australian AFL

team. ​

Rolleston College student

scores only goal in AFL games

ROLLESTON College student

Tony Worthington recently

represented New Zealand in two

matches in Auckland against an

Australian under-14 AFL team.

The young Australian rules

player scored the only goal for

the AFL New Zealand academy

team during their two games

against the Mornington Peninsula

side.

The New Zealand side lost

the first game 0-112. In match

two Worthington kicked his

side’s only goal in a 7-115 loss.

Both games were played at QBE

Stadium.

In spite of being the only goal

scorer Worthington said the best

part was doing the haka wearing

the New Zealand jersey.

The teenager is also a talented

rugby union player and was

named in the Ellesmere

under-13 development side last

year.

SELWYN TIMES

Mercedes-Benz CLS a real head-turner

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

I DOUBT I’ll ever know the real

answer. Why, after many years,

has Mercedes-Benz gone back to

a straight six-cylinder engine in

one of its models?

It goes like this – for as long as

I can remember its mainstream

engines were straight-sixes,

then in the late 90s the company

reconfigured them to a V6-type

that were highly successful, now

the new CLS-Class arrives with

an engine that has gone full

circle – an inline six.

I can work out the answer to a

certain extent, and no-one knows

better than me – most of the

cars I have ever owned have had

straight-six engines – they are

renowned for their smoothness

and refinement, and I guess that’s

where Mercedes-Benz is coming

from, the CLS450 is the epitome

of sophistication and elegance.

The CLS is classed as a coupe,

to me it’s pretty much a coupetype

sedan with its four doors

yet definite sloping rear which

incorporates a deep underliftback

boot.

The evaluation car was painted

black, and it captured attention

from everyone who gazed at

it, it’s a stunning looker and

measures up in the area of

performance. Mercedes-Benz

label it a mild hybrid, there

are engineering aspects which

gather, store and deliver energy;

however, for me I still see it as a

traditional power plant, and that

fabulous six-potter is amazing

with its outputs and polish on

delivery.

Mercedes-Benz rates the

turbocharged 3-litre unit

at 270kW and 500Nm of

torque, both outputs realised

at usable points in the rev

band – 5500rpm and 1600rpm

respectively. Drive from the

engine, and small electric motor,

is channelled through a ninespeed

automatic gearbox to all

four wheels, yes the CLS in this

form utilises the 4Matic system

carried across many other

models from this stable.

Put simply, in the CLS’ case,

the 4Matic system is a device to

enhance grip levels on sealed

surfaces, and that characterises

the model, it is a slick open road

charger with handling ability

to address the power outputs.

Of course, there are several

drive modes, and some of those

are structured so that the high

country roads can be tackled

with speed and dignity.

MERCEDES-BENZ CLS450: Classed as a coupe but with the

benefit of four doors.

I took the test car on a short

Port Hills loop and thoroughly

enjoyed its ride and handling

balance.

The CLS is low (1.4m), as a

consequence there is little body

movement over the suspension,

and if you add in the quality of

the air suspension elements there

is little doubt the CLS is made for

those quick highway journeys.

Huge low profile 20in Good Year

Eagle tyres add to the equation,

grip is high and performance

barely equalled in a car of this

type.

In terms of figures, the CLS

450 will accelerate to 100km/h

in 4.8sec and will make a

highway overtake in 3.8sec, it

simply scorches through the

acceleration process, and there’s

no point where the engine stops

giving, it is forceful, yet you

would never know it is working

hard, it simply delivers without

sound.

As honest as it is with its

response, the engineers have also

developed the driveline with fuel

economy in mind. Mercedes-

Benz claims an 8.7-litre per

100km (32mpg) combined cycle

average. That sits well with the

9.4l/100km (30mpg) figure

showing constantly on the dash

display graphics. At 100km/h it

is sipping fuel at just 5l/100km

(56mpg) with the engine turning

over amazingly low at 1250rpm.

All of these computations add

up to a beautifully engineered

vehicle, it also stands out for its

dignity and all of those values

you look to Mercedes-Benz for.

The CLS 450 has a magnitude

of safety kit, and that’s evident

every time you drive it. There are

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

CLS450, $157,890

• Dimensions – Length,

4988mm; width,

2069mm; height,

1435mm

• Configuration – Sixcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2999cc, 270kW, 500Nm,

nine-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 4.8sec

• Fuel usage – 7.6l/100km

almost autonomous-like devices

which keep you out of trouble.

There’s also a plethora of

features for comfort and

convenience, the CLS just feels

so right to be in. While it is a

big car at almost 5m, you don’t

actually feel its size when you are

driving it.

As a driver it gives you

all of the feel and satisfaction

you would expect from a car

which lists in standard form at

$157,890.

Although it may

seem like a big outlay, I’d happily

pay that amount for such a true

luxury car, one which delivers

so much in terms of overall

performance.

Every time now I get in the

Kiddie-family Toyota I’m looking

for the six-cylinder smoothness

that also makes the CLS so

desirable. It’s not quite there in

the Toyota, but it is certainly an

indication of what the inline-six

can deliver.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

Jigger comes to Rolleston

Jeff Bland and Graham

Lawn with the jigger.

Since the 1800’s, Rolleston has sat beside the junction

of the Midland railway line to Greymouth and main

south railway line to Invercargill.

This connection inspired the idea of displaying

a jigger in the new town centre, to signify rail’s

importance to Rolleston.

“The jigger symbolises the people who created the

rail network, the reason for Rolleston’s existence,” says

Jeff Bland, Selwyn District Councillor.

Discussion at Rolleston’s 150th celebrations in

2016, led to local railway enthusiast, Graham Lawn

charged with the mission of finding a jigger and while

he thought the task unachievable, Graham did find a

four-person jigger in Cass.

With the help of Jeff Bland and local historian,

Wayne Stack, the jigger was transported to Rolleston

on a trailer.

“Finding an old jigger is amazing and thanks to

KiwiRail it now belongs to the people of Rolleston.

A little rail history can be restored and displayed for

people to enjoy in the future,” says Graham.

From the 1800s, hand operated pull-trolleys were

used for track inspection and maintenance. These had

a seesaw action operated by two people, one standing at

each end and pushing or pulling the handle of a double

ended pole to drive the wheels via a chain connection.

“In the early 1900s, motorised jiggers came into use

for transporting workers to railway lines with no road

access. Their average speed was around 40kph and

their 10 horse power motor fairly reliable. There were

three forward gears and one reverse, two steel axles

and four steel wheels, chain driven via a back axle cog

connected to a gearbox.

“With no springs or shock absorbers the ride was

extremely uncomfortable and cold in winter. You had

to dress warm and got soaked when it rained. Track

workers wore Lammies, heavy great coats down below

their knees,” explains Graham.

One man could lift and swing the jigger’s end onto

an off-tracking point then push it off the railway lines

until a train passed. This was the jigger’s main benefit

according to Graham. Two jiggers might also be

coupled together with a towing rod and flat top trolley

loaded with materials.

On the odd occasion a track worker miscalculated

a train’s schedule and had to quickly leap off before

the jigger was disintegrated, though accidents were

rare and do not occur today as workers are in constant

contact with train control.

The jiggers were replaced in the 1990s by lightweight

jeep-like inspection vehicles then high wheel road/

rail trucks with a double cab, back tray and hydraulic

wheel operation (powered by road wheels and guided

by rail wheels).

Graham estimates the jigger is around 80 years old so

an ideal representation of the role of railway builders,

inspectors, maintainers and engine drivers so deserves

a place in the new town centre alongside agriculture,

military and multi-cultural icons typifying Rolleston’s

history.

Anyone interested in joining the

jigger’s restoration team is welcome to call

Graham Lawn on 021 869 065.

The jigger will be displayed

in the new town centre.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

American

hot rods and

muscle cars

Eddie Fairbairn built a side-valve 32 Ford

Roadster in the 1960s. It was the beginning

of a lifetime interest in V8s. In 1966, he put

together a front engine, side-valve dragster

which contained his own four carburettor

alloy intakes and owner made pistons.

Just two years later, he purchased a ‘Pink

Panther’ Ford Roadster which earned the

title of New Zealand’s top show car.

Fast forward to 1991, and Eddie achieved

over 200mph across the quarter mile track

in just 6½ seconds while drag racing; a

feat he attained six times. By 1995, Eddie

was circuit racing his 1995 Camaro in the

TransAm class.

Eddie’s passion for hot rods and muscle

cars grew into a business and 34 years ago

he began sourcing and supplying American

parts for automobiles.

Paul French joined Eddie in the business

31 years ago. He too has a passion for hot

rods. He owns a 27 Ford Track Roadster

440 and a 28 Model A Roadster Hemi,

and is an expert at re-building Holley

carburetors.

The massive knowledge, Eddie and Paul

have built up over the years is benefitting

many of American Auto Parts’ customers

who receive expert advice on their own

auto needs including restoration projects

and auto modifications.

American Auto Parts stock parts from

reputable manufacturers and carry an

exhaustive range of Chevrolet, Ford,

Chrysler and Pontiac parts. In store, you

Antony Geddes – South Island Development Manager, Avanda Group


My extended family has enjoyed farming the Acland Park land for

generations. So, it is fantastic to know that many new and established

families will get to enjoy a similar opportunity for the future.

There are many amenity points about Acland Park, Rolleston; which

you won’t find in other subdivisions, all of which have been designed to

create a safe and relaxed environment with a strong sense of community.

We have developed a series of new streetscapes which provide a

pedestrian environment, with the inclusion of courtyards to encourage

hard surface play, signaling a return of the good old days when kids

were safe and free to go and play in the street – and their parents

were happy to let them!

With a centrally located Commercial Centre planning an offering of

hospitality, retail, medical centre, and an Early Learning Centre the

Acland Park community will have the best facilities in the region.

When Moana Maniapoto and her fellow

musicians toured NZ in 2017, some of

their fans loved them so much, they

carried their own guitars and ukuleles to

the show – and joined in. Now she is back

on the road with ‘My Name is Moana’, a

90-minute tribute to the ocean, including

garage party classics, as well as those

inspirational songs that have taken Moana

and her musicians across 30 countries.

Moana and her musicians will host their

own little garage party on Tuesday, 14

May, 7.00pm at Trinity Church, Darfield.

The audience is invited to bring their

own guitar or ukulele and join in! A

delightful showcase of sublime singing

and captivating storytelling awaits the

audience, drawing them in to discover

and share their relationship to the Ocean

– and to each other.

TAHI (Southside 1993) as the 2019

recipient of the Classic Record, an award

acknowledging New Zealand’s history

of inspiring music albums. You can find

Moana’s music on Youtube, including

songs with her bands, The Moahunters

and The Tribe.

Moana has played hundreds of stages

in Istanbul, Moscow, Florence, Berlin,

SELWYN TIMES

Gardening

April is nature’s planting time

• By Rachel Vogan

THIS IS one of the last months in

which soil temperatures are still

consistently warm and, hopefully,

moist after a few days of autumn

rain.

Due to this, April is known as

nature’s planting time. Both these

elements enable newly planted

trees and shrubs the best start on

anchoring themselves into the

ground.

To give any newly planted tree,

shrub or perennial the best start,

blend in compost before planting

and establish a regular feeding

regime.

When planting at this time

of year, you’re best to opt for

balanced fertilisers that contain

potassium for strong healthy

roots.

Vegetables

It pays to be thinking about

winter crops and planting

out as many leafy greens

as your patch can cope

with. If you have

run out of space in

the ground, look

to tubs, buckets

and containers

as alternatives to

grow these winter

essentials.

Pumpkin

harvesting can begin

this month if required;

however leaving them

on the plants and outside

until a few frosts have cured

the skins does improve flavour

and increases how long the crop will

store.

Broad bean seeds can be planted this month, along with a few

rows of peas.

Hedges

Autumn is the ideal time to trim evergreen hedges, such

as buxus, laurel, privet, escallonia, teucrium and lonicera. With deciduous

hedges, it is wise to wait until the plants shed their leaves before you prune.

Remove any leaves lying on the hedge to enable fresh air and sun to circulate.

New hedges can be planted out this month too. Allow a reasonable distance

between plants to ensure the roots are not competing with those of their

neighbours. A side-dressing of general fertiliser will give the plants a boost

before winter.

Transplanting

Sometimes plants are, quite

simply, in the wrong spot.

Fortunately, many trees and

shrubs can be transplanted

if they are not too large. April,

May and June are good months to

do this. Shallow-rooted plants, such as azaleas,

rhododendrons and camellias, are easy to move. Roses

readily transplant, as do daphne. Unless it is a tree, aim to

trim back the plant by about a third, which will compensate

for the loss of roots below the ground.

Autumn & winter herbs

When it comes to packing a punch with flavour, herbs are at

the top of the list, as not a lot is required to elevate an average

dish into something outstanding. Herbs that can go in now are

rosemary, thyme, oregano, sage, bay, parsley, winter savory,

chervil and coriander. To maximise and promote healthy

growth, plant in good soil, in full sun. All the aforementioned

will thrive in tubs and planters – just don’t be tempted to plant

them in small pots, as they all enjoy plenty of root room.

Flower garden

Flowering perennials, summer-flowering shrubs and climbers

all need the short-back-and-sides treatment now. Leave stillblooming

dahlias alone, these can

be dealt with in a month or two.

Hydrangeas can be pruned now. Trim the stems back by up

to 50 per cent if you want to reduce the overall size of the plant.

However, note that this doesn’t have

to be an annual job – you can, alternatively, just leave them to

it, space permitting.

Bulbs can still be planted. Remember to plant them deeply,

to avoid them becoming top heavy later and falling over.

Buying a lifestyle block

City life getting you down? Dreaming of

living in the country, where you ‘commute’

from the breakfast table to a barn or your

home office? It might look like an easy life but

buying a lifestyle property can be a complex

business.

While living in the country has much

to recommend it, you need to do more

preparation for buying a place there than

buying a pair of gumboots and comparing

the merits of ride-on mowers.

“We recommend comprehensive due

diligence when buying any kind of property,

but rural ones come with a whole extra set of

things to think about compared to buying a

straightforward stand-alone home in town,”

says Kevin Lampen-Smith, chief executive of

the Real Estate Authority (REA).

Lampen-Smith says that while it’s tempting

to focus on the dream wish list for your

bucolic bolt-hole, but you should also

compile a list of issues to be aware of (and

people who can help you learn about them).

“If the property you like is being sold by a

licensed real estate agent, remember that you

can ask them anything you like about it,” he

says.

“Rural real estate agents have special skills

in this area and they’ll be able to help you

figure out what information you need to

make a well-informed decision. It’s also a

good idea to get your lawyer onboard early to

check titles, consents and other information

that you gather in the process.”

It might feel like you’re getting away from

it all when moving out of town, but rural

developments can be subject to rules that

restrict what you can do. Lampen-Smith

recommends getting your lawyer to check if

there are any covenants on the property that

might have an impact on a future business

you may run there, or any planned building

projects. You don’t want to invest in an

alpaca herd for your new dream property

only to find that it’s not allowed to carry any

livestock. Similarly, it would be tough to

discover that your subdivision plans are not

permitted by council rules.

Be aware that there may be tax implications

if you’re planning to use the property as a

business, Lampen-Smith says.

“In general, if it is currently being used for

a business that is tax-registered – whether

that’s selling organic eggs, grazing stock

or running a B&B – then the seller will

probably add GST to the price. This means

you’ll pay an extra 15 per cent, unless you are

also registered for GST. Ask your lawyer or

accountant to check if the house or any other

buildings on the property are GST-exempt.

They will also be able to advise you on

whether you need to be GST-registered.”

A good place to start when trying to figure

out what tax obligations might attach to your

purchase of the property is Inland Revenue’s

property tax decision tree (available at

http://www.ird.govt.nz/property/propertyterms-and-tools/property-decision-tree/),

but keep in mind that it is always best to

seek professional advice before you make a

decision.

Rural properties (like all properties) can

also have easements on the title that relate to

access, water or power. Lampen-Smith says

you should ask your lawyer to check the title

and work out what the easements are, and

how they will have an impact on your rights

and responsibilities as an owner.

“For example, if the title allows a neighbour

access to a piece of their land through your

property, do you have any right to limit the

type and frequency of that access if you buy

it?”

Be aware too that there may be ‘unofficial’

easements operating; the incumbent owners

may have an informal arrangement with their

neighbours, but this may not remain when

the property passes into new ownership.

Things that we take for granted when living

in urban environments, like water, sewage

and access, can require more involvement in

rural areas. Check the water sources for the

property – if it has its own bore, are there

limits on the amount of water you can draw

from it? What is the process for ensuring it is

safe to drink? What happens to wastewater

and sewage? Are you prepared for life with

a septic tank? Will the current owner ensure

the tank is empty as a condition of sale?

When it comes to access, will you share

a private road or right of way with other

properties? What will be your responsibilities

and potential costs for maintaining it? Don’t

forget that your neighbours may be involved

in unglamorous activities at ungodly hours –

check the zoning rules for nearby properties

if you’re worried about noise, smells or traffic.

You might think it’s lovely to have stock

grazing out the window, but are you ready for

a milk tanker driving past every morning? Be

aware that the LIM will not always alert you

to any pending or current NZTA decisions

regarding local highway linkages that often

divert traffic away from urban centres in

favour of immediate rural areas on the town

boundary. Check with NZTA if you think

your property could be affected by road

changes.

“Like all property purchases, buying a place

in the country requires careful, objective

consideration,” Lampen-Smith says.

“There are lots of great things about living

on the land, but it’s best to be realistic about

it. You don’t want to be like the former townie

I met a few weeks ago, who mournfully told

me that their lifestyle block had become “a

life sentence”. Do your homework and you’re

far more likely to live happily ever after in

rural bliss.”

[Edition datE]

What to watch for when

the mode of sale changes

Buying a property is rarely straightforward,

which is no surprise given that it’s the

biggest financial commitment most people

ever make. When you combine big sums of

money and a considerable level of emotional

investment, even the simplest transaction

can be stressful. We hear a lot about the need

for buyers to do their homework, but there

are plenty of reasons for sellers to be careful

too.

If you’re selling a property with a real estate

agent, you must sign an agency agreement

that sets out all the terms and conditions

of your contract with them, including how

much commission they will earn from the

sale and how the property will be marketed.

That’s why it’s so important to get legal advice

before you sign an agency agreement. If it’s a

standard agreement, you usually retain the

right to sell the property privately but it’s a

good idea to check this. If you have signed

an agreement with an agency but decide for

whatever reason to opt for a DIY private

sale, you should double and triple-check

whether the agency agreement requires you

to pay commission to the real estate agent or

agency.

Most agencies use the Real Estate Authority

(REA) standard clauses in agency

agreements, which set out certain terms

and conditions for the contract and the

payment of commission. According to the

standard clauses, commission is payable if

the property is sold within the active term

of the agreement (normally 90 days) or if it

is sold privately within six months after the

end of the term to a buyer that the agent had

earlier introduced to the property. In other

words, if the buyer visits an open home run

by the real estate agent, and then enters into a

private sale with the seller within six months

after the end of the agreement, the seller is

still obliged to pay commission to the agent.

This can vary depending on whether it is

a sole or general agreement – talk to your

lawyer before you sign up.

Both sole agency agreements and general

agency agreements provide for commission

payments after the agreed period ends. If a

seller enters into a sale within six months of

the agency agreement ending with a buyer

who was introduced by the real estate agent

(or the agent facilitated the sale), then the

seller must pay the agent commission just as

they would have done when the agreement

was still current. So, if the agent brings a

potential buyer to a property in March, the

agency agreement expires in April, and the

seller and purchaser enter into a private

sale agreement in May, the seller will have

to pay the agent commission. The sale must

become unconditional (which is when all

the conditions of the sale and purchase

agreement have been met), but it doesn’t

matter whether it goes unconditional during

or after the agency period, or during or after

the six months following expiry, so long as

the sale and purchase agreement is entered

into within those timeframes. So, before you

sign an agency agreement, ask the agency

if it uses standard REA clauses. If it doesn’t

you may be exposed to more complicated

commission risks and you should seek legal

advice.

Generally, any issues arising from the agency

agreement/arrangements between the seller

and the real estate agent won’t have a direct

effect on the separate sale and purchase

agreement between the seller and the buyer.

However, the wrangling involved may create

headaches or delays that you as a buyer

wouldn’t want to be troubled with.

If you do decide that you’re really keen on a

property in this situation, seek legal advice

before getting involved (and especially

before signing anything). Remember too

that the REA can help you with questions

and complaints about sales involving

licensed real estate agents, but it’s unable to

step in if you have a problem with a private

and unlicensed seller.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Raising the standard

There is now a second showhome to view

in Rolleston’s Branthwaite subdivision.

At 185sqm, BT Builders’ Kawarau design

showhome is ideal for first or second home

buyers who want a modest home with a

spacious feel.

The quality specifications and finish start

with a polystyrene rib raft foundation. This

offers thermal benefits, seismic movement

resilience and is standard for BT Builders.

Aesthetically appealing, with vertically

grooved panel veneer augmented with

stone, this home is well-built with an

attractive yet practical layout.

The spacious entry leads into the living,

dining and kitchen space with a separate

lounge accessed through double French

doors, making it a perfect room for dayto-day

living and entertaining. From the

lounge, double stacker doors lead out to

the garden while a large hardwood deck

runs off the living and master bedroom.

A standout feature of the living area is

the buffed concrete floor. This has attracted

considerable interest from visitors to the

home, for its look and functionality. The

grey and white colour scheme is softened

with a touch of earthy panelling and

furnishings, enhanced with rebated doors

and full height windows into the slab

which smoothly meet the floor coverings

bringing in lots of light, including in the

hallway.

The galley kitchen is bright and wellappointed

with two windows and an

efficient utilisation of space. It includes

tiled splashback, a walk-in pantry

cupboard, quality appliances, an island

sink and engineered stone bench tops.

All three bedrooms are well positioned

for easy access to bathroom facilities where

a spacious feel is achieved, by positioning

the main bathroom and toilet between

master and second bedrooms, and the

third bedroom making the latter ideal for

an office or guest room.

Generous storage is also a feature with

double wardrobes in both second and third

bedrooms, a walk-in robe in the master

bedroom, and two double cupboards in

the hallway. All are fitted with intelligent

cupboard organiser storage systems and

full height sliding doors. Standard for

BT Builders is also the provision of attic

trusses for extra storage, concealed in

the garage roof space and accessible via a

foldaway ladder.

In the ensuite, there is shower, hanging

vanity and toilet while the main bathroom

also has a hanging vanity, along with a tiled

walk-in shower and slightly fitted freestanding

acrylic bath. A separate toilet is

located next door and the laundry sited in

the insulated double garage.

BT Builders’ attention to detail

includes taking care of all aspects of a

build including landscaping, letterbox,

clothesline, patios, driveways and vehicle

crossing for an easy build.

“We like to determine each client’s

lifestyle requirements so we can optimise

their home and section for solar gains

and outdoor use,” explains Brad Tucker,

Director of BT Builders.

To view BT Builders’ new Branthwaite

showhome, head to 1 Reuben Drive (on

the corner of Lincoln Rolleston Road)

in Rolleston; open 8am-5pm weekdays,

12noon-4pm Sundays or by appointment

(phone 027 543 8228).

[Edition datE]

Home heating –

electricity, gas or wood?

How you heat your home depends on a

number of factors. Figuring out the best

way to heat your home continues to be a

matter for debate.

Several things are undisputed. A

warm, dry home is essential for

comfort and good health, good

insulation dramatically increases

the efficiency of any heating

system and ventilation is an

important consideration.

Most homes are

heated by electricity,

gas, or wood. In

New Zealand,

heating accounts

for approximately

30 percent of a

home’s annual energy

consumption. There are many

things you can do to reduce

consumption and cost.

The World Health Organisation

recommends a temperature of 18 deg C

for indoor living areas, and slightly less for

bedrooms. It recommends slightly higher

temperatures for vulnerable people – the

elderly and small children. Studies have

shown that indoor temperatures below 12

degrees can disrupt sleep.

Among all these considerations, how

you heat your home is a matter of personal

choice, with many options available.

Heat pumps are generally the most

common and cost-effective form of home

heating in New Zealand. Used properly,

they heat quickly and are convenient.

However, you need to have the right sized

unit for the area and they don’t work when

electricity is not available. They tend to be

room-specific but ducted heat pumps are

becoming more popular and are costeffective,

especially in new builds, but can

also be installed into established homes.

Modern wood burners may be the

closest you can get to an open-fire feel, but

are much more efficient. Wood is generally

a renewable fuel, and if you have a cheap

or free supply, a wood burner may be

the least expensive heating option. They

heat large areas and are not dependent

on electricity but there is the chopping

and stacking to be done, flues need to be

cleaned regularly and older models can

contribute to air pollution and may violate

strict air quality regulations – www.mfe.

govt.nz has detailed information regarding

this.

Pellet fires are typically more efficient

than wood burners but can have a smaller

output. They require electricity but

some have a battery backup and they are

thermostatically controlled with timers.

These must comply with regulations which

are also detailed on the Ministry for the

Environment website.

Gas heating is common and convenient.

Central heating systems can be zone

controlled and provide warm air

circulation. Flued gas heaters are best, as

unflued and portable gas heaters produce

lots of moisture and emit pollutants that

can be unsafe. Flued gas heating systems

can be installed in most homes. They are

fast heating and are relatively inexpensive

to run. However gas is not a renewable

resource and prices can vary widely.

The greatest source of energy is actually

free. Harnessing the sun can dramatically

reduce heating costs and is the most

environmentally friendly way to heat your

home. Passive heating combines insulation

with good design, accomplished more

effectively in new builds but also able to be

incorporated into existing homes.

Getting the sun’s warmth into your

home is a function of the design; keeping

it in is a function of the insulation. There

is a wealth of information online as passive

heating becomes normative in the design

and building industry.

Websites such as energywise.govt.

nz and smarterhomes.org.nz have

comprehensive information on and tips

for, heating your home in the colder

months.
