Leeston bus service could be axed

• By Anan Zaki

A TRIAL bus service could be

pulled due to low patronage.

Environment Canterbury said

its Leeston to Christchurch route

has had low usage since the trial

started in late January.

The bus leaves Leeston at 7am

and returns at 5.50pm on weekdays

and averages 28 passengers

a day.

ECan senior public transport

manager Stewart Gibbon said

unless patronage rises, current

passenger numbers are not high

enough to continue the service

long-term.

“We saw strong support from

the Leeston community for a

commuter service during the

survey process late last year. We

encourage the community to

make good use of the route now

so that it can be extended,” he

said.

Leeston Community

Committee chairman Lloyd

Clausen urged more people to

take up the service but also said

not everyone is able to use the

current bus.

He said the current service

does not accommodate all

residents.

from the editor’s desk

A FORMER police anti-terrorist squad

member has given a rare insight into what

would have been going through the minds

of the two Selwyn policemen who captured

the accused mosque gunman.

Mike Kyne led one of the ATS squads

which found and mortally wounded David Gray after his

murderous rampage at Aramoana back in November, 1990 (see

pages 6-7).

He outlines the split second decisions the two guys had to

make, the conversations they almost certainly would have been

having, and the decision on why not to shoot the alleged gunman

dead.

Kyne is correct in saying no one would have cared if they did.

But they are New Zealand police and that is the difference – and

a good one at that – between us and police overseas.

Why you have to pay for playground

$70k bill to

repair private

development

• By Anan Zaki and Julia Evans

THE DISTRICT council has

revealed why ratepayers are

footing the $70,000 bill to

repair a playground built by a

subdivision developer.

Levi Park playground off

Strauss Drive, Rolleston, was

built by developers Gillman

Wheelans in 2014, but it was

constructed on poor soil, causing

the playground to slump late last

year.

District council property and

commercial manager Douglas

Marshall said Gillman Wheelans

maintenance responsibility

ended in 2015.

“In reviewing the reasons for

this problem, the council has

considered whether there are

any liability issues on Gillman

Wheelans, and it does not

believe there are,” he said.

“Gillman Wheelans has

provided engineering and other

expertise during the past six

months and continues to assist

the council as requested.”

The geo-technical report

commissioned by the district

SLUMP: Ratepayers are footing the $70,000 bill to fix a

playground in Rolleston.

council late last year identified

that parts of the playground site

had historically been filled with

poor compaction, which was

likely to have occurred some

years ago when the land was

used for agricultural purposes.

“The site investigations also

showed that the ground is made

up of mainly soft soil, which

naturally struggles to drain,

and that the drainage had failed

within the playground site.”

Mr Marshall said this resulted

in the playground site becoming

waterlogged, which contributed

to parts of the structure

slumping.

“The council has never had

issues with ground conditions

impacting on playgrounds such

as this,” he said.

“In the future it will be

mindful if similar ground

conditions are identified to

consider the type of engineering/

drainage being installed by the

developer.”

It was dubbed New Zealand’s

first “smart playground” with

augmented reality markers

which would give instructions

for games when scanned by a

smartphone.

The land is currently being

remediated. A geo-technical

engineer advised the council

that this issue is isolated to

the playground area and does

not affect nearby residential

properties.

The old playground equipment

is being replaced with lighter

equipment to prevent future

slumping, Mr Marshall said.

“The new playground

equipment will be more suitable

for the remediated site. Our

thanks to nearby residents for

their patience and support as we

work to make Levi Park a safe

playground for the community,”

he said.

Drainage work started in

November and is expected to be

completed at the end of the week.

A new climbing structure

being imported from Germany

is expected to be installed at Levi

Park in late May.

The playground is likely to reopen

in June.

FIERY TRIP TO WORK

A woman on her way to work

engine caught fire last Tuesday

about 8am and, while Mr Sayer

said the vehicle was left “totally

uninjured. “The engine ran out

of power and she turned around

to go home before it caught fire.”

LUCKY ESCAPE

An Australian woman

Bruce Sayer said the vehicle

likely rolled once or twice and

was severely damaged.

In spite of the district’s restricted

Bus driver

fails to

see cyclist

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A CYCLIST was lucky not to

sustain serious injuries after

being hit by a bus on Sunday

night.

A 21-year-old man was

cycling east on Ellesmere

Junction Rd at about 9.30pm

when the driver of the bus, also

heading east, failed to see the

cyclist and collided with him.

Sergeant Phil Bayne said

another vehicle was heading

west on Ellesmere Junction

Rd, which the bus driver was

concentrating on.

He said the bus driver

thought he hit a possum and it

wasn’t until he went back to the

depot and heard the volunteer

fire alarm go off that he went

back to check and discovered

he had hit a cyclist.

No passengers were on

the bus at the time of the

collision. The cyclist was taken

to Christchurch Hospital with

moderate injuries.

He said cyclists need to

ensure they wear bright,

fluorescent clothing and

bicycles have front and back

lights.

Call to micro-chip domestic cats

• By Anan Zaki

A SUPPORTER of trapping feral

cats says a new bylaw should

include the micro-chipping of

domestic cats.

The district council voted

earlier this month to prepare

a portfolio paper to consider

developing a bylaw to regulate

the keeping

of domestic

animals,

including cats.

A portfolio

meeting will be

held next month.

Springfield

Township

Sean Ellis

Committee

secretary Sean

Ellis – who has campaigned to

trap feral cats – welcomed the

move.

“It will take a couple of months

[after the portfolio meeting]

to sort out what will go in the

bylaw, then [council will] ask for

petitions and then it will go to an

open forum and decide exactly

what the bylaw is going to be,”

Mr Ellis said.

He said micro-chipping

domestic cats “is the way ahead”

in regulating the population of

feral cats which threaten native

wildlife.

“The main aim is to protect the

domestic cat so that we can then

go after the feral cats . . . at the

moment we can’t go after feral

cats because we don’t know if

they are feral or domestic.”

“The last thing we want to do is

kill someone’s cat,” he said.

Mr Ellis has been lobbying the

district council on managing

the feral cat population since

UNWANTED: Micro-chipping

the district’s domestic

cats may be needed to

manage the population of

feral cats which threaten

native wildlife.

last year. Since he started

his campaign, he said he has

received backing from Predator

Free NZ, SPCA, Department of

Conservation, Forest and Bird,

Waimakariri Environmental

and Recreational Trust and the

Arthur’s Pass Trust.

The district council also

passed resolutions to take an

educational and supportive

role to promote responsible cat

ownership and environmental

protection.

It also voted to continue work

to better understand the impact

of cats on biodiversity and

how those impacts can be best

managed.

The district council

estimated there are about

20,000 domestic cats across the

district.

The number of feral and

stray cats is “unknown” but the

council estimated it to be in the

thousands.

Bus service faces axe

•From page 1

“The service in the early

Aramoana cop’s insight into capture

• By Barry Clarke

AN ANTI-terrorist squad leader

involved in hunting and shooting

David Gray at Aramoana has

given an insight into what would

have happened in the minutes

leading up to the capture of the

alleged mosque gunman.

Mike Kyne said the two Selwynbased

officers who apprehended

in Brougham St could have taken

the easy way out – and shot him.

“Their credibility and moral

compass was such that they did

not do that. I was gratified these

two constables did not resort to

killing him,” he said.

“They could have killed him

and no one would have cared. If it

was overseas he would have been

dead.”

One of the officers is based at

Lincoln, and the other at an as yet

undisclosed Selwyn police station.

Both are seasoned police.

Mr Kyne, led one of the police

anti-terrorist squads sent in to

hunt down Gray after his murderous

spree in the Otago coastal

settlement of Aramoana in November,

1990.

Gray killed 13 people including

Mr Kyne said the two constables

and death decisions on Friday.

them to shoot to kill.

The squad was mobilised and

gunman had travelled at speed

to Linwood (from the Deans Ave

mosque) and was now mobile

again.

“The pressure would have been

ramping up. Everything is happening

at high speed,” he said.

The two officers travelled from

The Princess Margaret Hospital

to Brougham St looking for the

suspect.

Mr Kyne said by this stage

police would have had a

registration number and

description of the vehicle the

gunman was travelling in.

“The two constables would

be aware of this. The passenger

would be talking to the driver,

telling him to turn here, turn

there.

“In that car the two guys

would only be concentrating on

“They would be talking and

been thinking a million miles

of accused mosque gunman

“You factor in the danger to the

public in how you do this, and

Brougham St is busy.

“They would have been considering:

‘If we get close enough do

we shoot him?, do we shoot his

tyres out?’”

The two constables decided

to ram the suspect’s vehicle to a

standstill.

“Once that happens the decision

has been made. Everything

now is going to happen in what

could even be a half a second,”

said Mr Kyne.

They got out, armed with a pistol

and high powered rifle. Again,

they have split seconds to make

decisions.

Then one the officers saw explosives

in the vehicle, heightening

the danger even further.

He rushed back to the police

vehicle to alert other officers on

their way, but then lost sight of

his partner. He then returned

to the vehicle to support this

partner.

“They would have been yelling

at him to surrender; making

instant decisions whether they

needed to shoot or not – we’re

talking a few seconds here only.

“Everything they would have

done is based solely on what is in

front of them at that time. They

doesn’t come into it. You don’t

have time.

“It’s like when someone who

can’t swim dives into the water to

save someone. They just do it.”

Mr Kyne said the explosives

in the accused gunman’s vehicle

were “just another hazard that

had to be dealt with.”

“There’s no fear. You are completely

in the zone. Their minds

would have been crystal clear.

They would have been talking to

him. ‘Where’s the guns,’ demanding

he show his hands, telling him

to surrender. Then they went in

and grabbed him, away from the

bomb, handcuffed him and apprehended

him. Then they have a

crime scene. They wouldn’t have

touched the car and they would

have kept people at bay.

“That’s when you look at each

other (partner) and say ‘Holy

s**t!’

“The heart slows down, and

then it starts to sink in what

you’ve actually just did. They

probably had a beer that night.”

Police Minister Stuart Nash

also revealed more details

around the man’s arrest.

“These two guys pull this guy

out but at the same time he was

yelling: ‘I’ve got a bomb’ and

shooting at the same time, so we

overuse the word hero, but not in

this case,” Mr Nash said.

Mr Kyne was involved in many

dangerous life and death incidents

during his police career.

Aramoana was one where he

was lucky to survive.

Hard up against a Polite garage

wall, Gray burst out of the bach

front door several metres away,

firing wildly.

The wall was peppered with

bullet holes, but the rounds miraculously

missed Mr Kyne.

“How I survived I have no idea.

We had no option but to return

fire when Gray came out shooting

at us.”

Gray took a number of bullets

and was mortally wounded.

“But after he was secured we

administered first aid. That’s

what NZ Police do. We believe in

justice and fairness. No different

to the two guys on Friday.”

Gray later died in an

ambulance.

Fashion Forecast Show

a first at The Hub

The Hub Hornby is proud to put on their very first Fashion

Forecast show on 11 April from 7pm to 8pm. This hourlong,

free event will showcase the latest autumn and

winter styles from a wide variety of fashion retailers within

the centre.

The growing variety of fashion and accessory

stores at The Hub now means customers

can shop for the latest fashions, including

shoes and accessories at the centre

with plenty to choose from and,

importantly, for all body types.

Rather than using professional

models, participating retailers are

organising their own models, using

staff, friends, and family. Centre

Manager, Jason Marsden, says

“We wanted to deliver an authentic

showcase of the upcoming new

season’s fashion. Rather than seeing

traditional models take to the runway and

people thinking that they may not be able

to wear that, we want to showcase real people

wearing real clothing.”

“This is going to be all about real fashion on real people.

We want our customers to think: ‘Yes I could wear that’.

This will also add a lot of fun to the event and there may

even be one or two surprise looks”.

Participating fashion stores include Caroline Eve, Farmers,

Max, K&K, Bras’n Things, Pagani, Jeanswest, Moda Bella,

Ziera Shoes plus others.

Proud to be… fashion experts on hand

During the lead up to the show, The Hub recently ran

an initiative called: ‘Proud to Be….’. This saw people

nominated and six winners each receiving a full makeover

to reflect their own personal style. “The aim

is to celebrate the diversity, stories,

and people of the greater Hornby

community. These recipients

will be familiar faces in the

community and it will be great

to introduce them and their

new looks throughout the

show, as each will take to

the runway to celebrate their

nomination,” says Marsden.

Moda Bella

Each of the ‘Proud to Be…’

winners are in the process

of experiencing a makeover

with The Hub’s resident style

expert, Vick McMillian, creating a

look that suits the individual and their

personality.

Customers who are unsure or would like some additional

help can utilise the services of The Hub’s very own fashion

stylist Vicki McMillan. Vicki styles the three mannequins

located outside Michael Hill, drawing from multiple

retailers thus creating unique looks not seen in any single

store.

Come along to the Hub Hornby for the Fashion Forecast

show on 11 April from 7pm to 8pm – See you there!

Defensive

game fails to

prevent loss

• By Jacob Page

SELWYN UNITED will look to

rediscover their attacking mojo

at home against FC Twenty11 this

Saturday after a 2-0 loss to Cashmere

Technical in the Mainland Premier

League.

After beating

Nomads 6-4 in the

opening round a

fortnight ago, it was

the attacking third

which failed to fire

for Chris Brown’s

side.

“A couple of

Chris Brown

errors in defence led to us conceding

goals but it was the forward third that

just didn’t click for us,” he said.

“We usually have one game like

that a season so hopefully it’s out of

the way now.”

With the second round game

against Ferrymead Bays cancelled,

Brown said the defensive plans were

used against Cashmere Technical a

week later.

“I thought defensively we were far

more organised and worked hard.

“THe boys were high on confidence

after the first win . . . but I think they

can stand up and be happy with how

they played against Tech but also we

know we missed a chance to get some

points.”

Brown praised his two centre

backs, Jack Allatt and Jayden Booth

for their commitment in defence.

Leeston-Southbridge take title

A MASTERFUL innings

by Rupert Young steered

Leeston-Southbridge to the

country cricket one day title on

Saturday.

Leeston-Southbridge’s opening

batsman Young read the

conditions perfectly at Rangiora’s

showpiece ground,

Mainpower Oval in making a

composed unbeaten 81 runs,

earning him man-of-the-match

honours in the 79-run win over

Southbrook.

The heavy loss continued

Southbrook’s woeful record

in championship games, with

still just the 2011/12 title in its

clubrooms trophy cabinet.

Southbrook won the toss

and elected to bowl first in the

much-anticipated CRV Ambreed

Country Premier One

Day Competition final.

Brook seamer Alex Simpson

got rid of Canterbury A batsman

Joel Harden cheaply

before Sam Ermerins – who

enjoyed the best season of his

career – ripped through the

combined side’s quality top order.

Ermerins claimed the key

scalps of Harry and Ben Chamberlain

along with ex-Dutch

international Tim Gruijters,

before Darryn Boyle knocked

over Ben Donkers, reducing

them to a precarious 72/5.

Meanwhile, Young was batting

serenely at the other end,

and soon had much-needed

help from Liam O’Sullivan who

SPORT

made a handy 49 off 68 balls.

Canterbury Country batsman

Young – younger brother

of Central Stags star and fringe

Blackcap William Young –

carried his bat throughout the

Leeston-Southbridge innings,

making 81 not out off 114 balls

to lift his team to a solid 225/7

in their 45 overs.

At the change of innings, the

’Brook, with its powerful top

order, were comfortable to be

chasing 226 runs to win the

title.

But they got off to a horror

start when Matt Brine was

involved in a mix-up with

fellow opener and skipper

Tom Rodden and he was

run out third ball of the

innings.

It was the first of three runouts

in the Southbrook innings

on a day where Leeston-

Southbridge’s fielding was of

the highest order.

The match appeared to

hinge on the partnership of

Canterbury opening batsman

Jack Boyle and Canterbury l

egend Shanan Stewart, who

came together with the score at

1/2.

After a cautious beginning,

the pair were soon finding the

gaps and the boundary with

regularity.

Boyle was dismissed for 31

when he shuffled down the

pitch to Donkers and was

bowled off his pads, bringing

Simpson to the wicket.

Simpson and Stewart put on

68 runs before they fell in quick

succession to the off-spin of

Gruijters.

The ’Brook then collapsed

spectacularly to be all out for

146 in the 38 th over, sparking

jubilant scenes as Leeston-

trophy.

Kart racer off to Europe

LINCOLN TEENAGER Jacob

Douglas will make a little bit of

Kiwi karting history when he

lines up at the first round of the

FIA Karting Academy Trophy

series in Germany in May.

Although more and more

New Zealand karters have been

travelling to Europe to compete

in recent years, Jacob, 13, is the

first to be invited by the FIA

Karting Academy to contest its

annual trophy

series.

“It’s acknowledgement,

if you

like, from the

very top people

in our sport,”

said KartSport

Jacob

New Zealand

president

Graeme Moore.

Douglas

“Drivers like Jacob are

truly world class, and that by

being able to produce drivers

of his obvious calibre, the sport

here must be in pretty good

shape.”

In spite of his age, Jacob is

already a veteran of several trips

to Europe to race. The two-time

NZ Vortex Mini ROK champion

led a four-strong New Zealand

squad to its best finish yet at the

annual ROK Cup International

event in Italy in October last

year.

“It’s a big commitment,

particularly for a 13-year-old, but

it’s what Jacob wants to do so as a

family we are right behind him,”

BIG THINGS: Jacob Douglas (front) will become the first Kiwi

to compete in the FIA Karting Academy Trophy Series. PHOTO:

FAST COMPANY/UMBERTO FRAENKEL-SPORTINPHOTO

said his father Craig Douglas.

Having already proved he can

foot it with the best young Vortex

drivers in the world, Jacob says

his goal is to establish himself in

Europe and he believes that this

year’s three-round series – in

which up to 50 invited drivers

use the same model of OTK kart

– is just the stepping stone he

needs.

“I am really proud that

Kartsport New Zealand is

supporting me,” said Jacob.

“It is a great series to introduce

me to European junior racing

and I am extremely excited to

continue where I left off last year

at the ROK Cup with Lennox

Racing. I am looking forward to

doing New Zealand proud and

everybody who has helped take

to where I am today. I am also

fortunate that my KartSport

New Zealand academy coach,

Tiffany Hamilton, will be by my

side to help guide me through

the weekends when I am up

there. Tiff has lots of European

racing experience for me to draw

on.”

This year the series will be

contested over three rounds,

starting at Wackersdorf in

Germany in early May, before

heading to Italy for a second

round in June, then the third and

final in September.

PREBBLETON CYCLIST Bailey

it through to me.

“To get selected

for junior worlds

and have a good

success like that, you know you

O’Donnell said he was eager to

double-down on his success by

making his sport the focus this

year.

“I’m doing some building parttime

but I thought this

year I have a chance to

make the most of my

sport so I thought why

not give it a go?” he said.

“I’m putting in

700km a week on the

He will head to

Belgium in July for two

months of road racing

which was organised

by former national

representative Hayden

“I’ve never raced for

long overseas so it’s an

opportunity.”

It’s a far cry from his

start as a child riding

a mountain bike on

the Tinwald track in

He said he wasn’t sure whether

BACK or NECK PAIN?

Advertisement

After twelve years in New

Zealand, Teeter Hang-Ups have

now established a long term

track record with thousands of

people throughout New

Zealand.

Inversion New Zealand was

started by Dave and Nancy Hare,

Dave had suffered over twenty

years of back pain from Degenerated

Discs and had basically

given up and decided to just live

with it. To him surgery was never

an option as long as he still

could walk, there was hope.

“While on an overseas trip I

discovered the Teeter Hang-Ups

for the first time, when I tried it,

the pain completely

disappeared and I was pain free

for about 30 minutes. I never

would have believed it would fix

me completely as specialists had

told me it was irreversible, but I

now knew I had a place to go

every time I wanted some

welcome relief”.

To my surprise the more I used

the table the longer the pain

stayed away, until after nearly

three months the pain was

completely gone, after spending

large amounts of money on

everything I could find I finally

had found something that

worked and it was something I

had never heard of sorting it out

for me in a very short period of

time.

Real Hope For Long Term Sufferers

Once I was sure it really worked

I decided to introduce Teeter

into New Zealand to help

spread awareness of the one

thing that truly helped me.

Over the years I have helped

tens of thousands of people in

New Zealand get some serious

relief and have seen results in

not only backs, but necks, hips,

knees, posture, circulation and

lots more.

The results from what inversion

does is nothing short of miraculous

in areas we never thought

possible, I believe there is a

place for these in every single

home regardless of if you have

back issues or not.

We have introduced them into a

number of schools which are

using them for their special

needs children, the blood to the

brain helps these kids and the

results are excellent. What this

means for the aging population

is that it helps maintain the

health of the brain as we all get

older.

I would not have believed the

results had I not tried it for

myself, and I would still be

suffering to this day. This is why

we travel the country showing

people and letting them see for

themselves how great it is and

how life can be once your pain

free again

IT IS PURE LOGIC AS TO HOW

THE TEETER TABLE WORKS

Discs: It uses gravity to apply traction,

the traction gently opens the discs and as

they open up they create suction, this

suction draws fluid from the surrounding

tissue back into the discs, re-hydrating

them. This is the key! Discs do not have

their own blood supply, they rely on trans

fer of fluid from the surrounding tissue to

keep them healthy and hydrated and over

the years as discs get thinner with age, they

lose the ability to take on fluid (just like

squeezing a sponge) and they start to

de-hydrate.

De-Hydrated discs are less flexible, they are

harder, more prone to injury, they interfere

with nerve roots creating pain and

ultimately the de-hydration causes degen

eration. The Teeter Inversion table slowly

and gently brings the hydration back into

the discs, plumping them up. It separates

the nerve roots far more effectively and

returns quality of life

Muscles: A lot of pain is muscular, when

muscles are stressed they become tight

which restricts the flow of blood and lymph

through the muscles so toxins build up,

Co2 and Lactic Acid. Traction opens up the

muscles, Rhythmic Traction, is a gentle

rocking motion that stimulates circulation

and encourages blood flow through the

muscles, which clears the lactic acid into

your lymph system where it stimulates

lymph flow and deals with it. Most people

with serious neck issues see a large

improvement after only one treatment.

Frank Harwood (84 at time of picture) using his Teeter, Frank’s

been Inverting for over eleven years and has found it keeps him

young

Posture: Poor posture is one f the

major cases of pain and is a major contributor

to the deterioration of the body with

age. A difference in leg length causes most

of the hip and knee issues, as they continue

to place uneven loads on the joints;

similar to the wheels out of alignment on

your car.

Trying to correct posture is extremely

difficult due to muscle memory, as it

constantly pulls the muscles back to where

they were. At a level of 40 degrees or more

on the Teeter, the muscle groups open up

and eventually come back into alignment,

using the table daily, does not allow the

muscle memory to pull them back out of

alignment and slowly the muscles start to

lose their memory and go with the flow,

allowing the body to come back into

correct posture. Then using the table once a

day will ensure it is kept there.

This is pure logic, if a machine is out of

alignment it does not last long, the only

difference between the body and a

machine is that the body is constantly

repairing itself, however if the wear and

tear on the body is greater than the body’s

ability to repair itself, it is a slow decline.

The Teeter slowly brings the body out of its

decline and allows the body to repair itself,

resulting in a far healthier life.

If you are serious about investing in your

health and really sorting your issues out,

come see us at one of our local roadshows,

you have nothing to lose and chances are, a

lot to gain.

Here in New Zealand, Dr Giresh Kanji, is

one of the countries most respected Pain

Specialists. Dr Kanji has been using Teeters in

his clinics for the past 6 years and has

discovered how effective traction is especially

on disc issue.

Dr Kanji is the author of "Fix Your Back" and

"Fix Your Neck Pain, Headache & Migraine",

both books are in most bookstores.

Dr Kanji discovered in the research that the

disc is the most likely source of low back pain

and Inversion showed the best results of all

the trials conducted. Three studies showed a

60% reduction in pain and one showed a 75%

reduction in surgery for people with disc

prolapse.

Dr Kanji endorses Inversion as the best

method to manage back pain, he has

personally been using the Teeter Inversion

tables for his own low back pain, has Teeter

Inversion tables at both of his clinics in

Wellington (The Sports and Pain Clinic) and

has had such success that he is now conducting

New Zealand’s largest study on Inversion

Therapy. In his own words, "these things are

gold and inversion should be a first line

treatment for low back pain”.

Country senior and colts games axed

No Craw Shield

defence

under new plan

• By Gordon Findlater

CANTERBURY Country will

not have the opportunity to

defend their Craw Shield title

against Canterbury Metro after

a decision was made to scrap

the sub union’s senior and colts

representative teams this year.

The Canterbury Country

Rugby Sub Union made the

decision at a recent board

meeting.

The contributing reasons for

the decision were an extended

Canterbury B season, the

move of Ellesmere and North

Canterbury’s Southbridge Shield

and Munro Shield matches to

later in the year as opposed to

July, and increasing difficulty

obtaining sponsors and gaming

machine funds.

Canterbury Country sub

union secretary Murray Dulieu

described the board’s decision as

“facing reality.”

“I’m disappointed and I

think a number of the player

and supporters will be as well.

Canterbury Country has been

around from a long time, so I’m

pretty disappointed, but it’s the

decision,” said Dulieu.

This means Canterbury

SPORT

Country’s long-standing

traditional games against Otago

Country and Southland Country

will also not be played this year.

Canterbury Country will still

have under-16 boys, under-18

boys and under-15 girls rep

teams, which will compete at a

South Island tournament.

In previous years, the annual

Craw Shield match between

Canterbury Country and

Canterbury Metro has been

used as a final trial match for the

Canterbury B side. However, due

to a newly-extended programme

GONE: The Canterbury Country senior side will not be able to defend the Craw Shield after a

decision was made to axe the senior and colts representative programme due to an extended

Canterbury B season.

PHOTO: KAREN CASEY

this year, the Canterbury B side

will be selected by the end of the

club season.

At the end of last season, the

Ellesmere and North Canterbury

sub unions sent a questionnaire

to all of their clubs and the

feedback they got was to play the

Southbridge and Munro shields

games after the completion

of the club season. That is

when the Canterbury Country

representative games take place.

This also contributed to the

decision due to very limited

preparation for the Canterbury

Country teams and an extension

of demand on players’ time.

The new schedule will

see Ellesmere and North

Canterbury’s senior and

colts teams play four game

programmes following the club

season, which will culminate

in the Southbridge and Munro

Shields games.

Dulieu says a full review will

be carried out at the end of this

season to evaluate the results of

the change. The review will look

at whether the new format has

provided the development path

for country players or if it would

be better achieved by playing

in the country seniors and colts

representative games.

“The goal is for country players

to develop their rugby so they

have an opportunity to play for

Canterbury or Canterbury B.

I think the important thing is

that this programme which is

being trialled will still give those

players a chance to develop and

move onto higher honours,” he

said.

win award

Rebecca Scott (far right) started up her

business in Selwyn nine years ago and recently

won an award at the Selwyn Awards 2018

Capacity building workshops

Is your community group, club or not-for-profit looking to recruit

some volunteers?

We’re running a series of free workshops over the next few months,

for not-for-profit community groups, organisations and clubs as a

part of the Capacity Building Initiative.

Council Community and Economic Development Advisor Michael

Heywood says the aim of the initiative is to offer advice on a wide

range of interesting and useful topics.

“The workshops vary from funding and fundraising, governance,

marketing, coaching and more,” he says.

There a few workshops coming up including:

Funding in Selwyn: Tuesday 9 April, 1–3pm,

Rolleston Community Centre

This workshop will include speakers from Council, Department of

Internal Affairs and Rata discussing funds they have available.

Sustainable Funding: Wednesday 8 May, 5.30–7.30pm,

Lincoln Event Centre

This workshop will cover key income streams for community

groups, the difference between donations, sponsorship and grants,

and tips on how to get more volunteers for fundraising and how to

best use these volunteers.

Governance Bites: Thursday 20 June, 5.30–7.30pm,

Lincoln Event Centre

This workshop will cover the essentials that every not-for-profit

board member needs to know.

For information or to RSVP contact Michael.Heywood@selwyn.govt.nz.

Profiling our Selwyn Awards 2018 winners. Busy Bumbles, a locally owned after-school care

business took out the 2018 Small Business Award.

Rebecca Scott has wanted to be a teacher ever since she was five years old. She ticked that off,

for 15 years working as a teacher and even becoming deputy principal. After having children of

her own she wanted more flexibility and time to spend with her young family. Not wanting to leave

the childcare and education industry she began researching alternative options.

Rebecca saw an opportunity in after-school care and Busy Bumbles was created, with just one

enrolled child, working out of Rolleston School. The business quickly developed, and in a short

nine years, with the expansion of Selwyn townships Busy Bumbles grew to a roll of over 5000

children at 10 venues with 61 staff.

As managing director and owner, Rebecca says she couldn’t think of a better place to start

up a business.

Selwyn has been such a supportive and collaborative area to grow my business into what it is

today. There is such a positive culture within the business network in Selwyn.

“Everyone works together and lends a hand whenever someone needs it, I’ve had nothing but one

hundred percent support when I’ve reached out,” she says.

In last year’s Selwyn Awards, Busy Bumbles was nominated in the Small Business category.

It was voted winner by the judges and also named runner-up for the People’s Choice Award.

Rebecca says this nomination was a great opportunity for the business as a whole to take a step

back and recognise its success.

“We’ve been so busy, it’s just work work work, we don’t often get a chance to look up and

appreciate all the positive things we are doing in our community.

“Sitting at the awards that evening and hearing all the good things being said about your business

I felt so so proud. So the whole table was pretty jolly proud actually, with a few tears. That evening

was definitely the highlight of my nine years in business,” she says.

The Selwyn Awards run every two years, with the next one coming up next year. For information

on the awards, and the winners go to selwyn.govt.nz/selwynawards.

Community recycling days

We’re holding two community recycling drop-off days next month in

Road upgrade projects under way in Prebbleton

and Rolleston

Two new projects are getting under way in Prebbleton and Rolleston as part of the Council’s ongoing

roading upgrade programme.

Work has begun to seal a 1km long unsealed stretch of Dunns Crossing Road, between Boulez Mews

and Selwyn Road. The project includes shoulder widening, road pavement construction and chip

sealing, and is expected to be completed by the end of April.

Contractors will be safely managing traffic throughout the project through speed restrictions, lane

closures, and give way controls.

Early next week work will start on a street frontage upgrade of Tosswill Road in Prebbleton, to be

completed by the end of May. The upgrade involves sealing the long grass shoulder on the southern

side of the road, to create a parallel parking lane up to the Domain entrance. New kerb and channel and

footpath construction will be installed on the southern side of the road over a total length of 365m, from

the Prebbleton Domain to Ashford Avenue.

The upgrade also involves stormwater improvements.

During construction temporary speed restrictions, temporary traffic signals and parking restrictions will

be in place when required.

Sports reporter Jacob Page looks at how the new format for the Combined Country

rugby competition will affect teams

ELLESMERE RUGBY teams

The structure was signed off by

all three sub-unions, including

Ellesmere rugby manager

Each team will play seven

round-robin games before the

playoffs start with the quarterfinals.

Teams in pool A will play the

seven other teams in their group,

while teams in pools B and C

will play six games against teams

WITH SENIOR country rugby

kicking off, here’s how the

Ellesmere teams are shaping up

ahead of the season

•Waihora

Waihora will look to replicate

their stellar season last year,

which saw them win both the

Combined Country trophy and

the Ellesmere competition.

Co-coach Joff Mooar said

he expects his team will have a

target on our backs.

“We’re not being complacent

. . . the trophies may be in our

cabinet but they’re only on loan,”

he said. “We had 18 debutants

that we put through last year

and have only lost four of last

year’s squad.”

Mooar said the return of

utility back Leon Simpson would

give his team added depth and

some speed.

Ellesmere representative Matt

Saunders will offer plenty at

either centre or first-five.

Mooar said there will be

some fresh faces in the forwards

PROVIDES:

who will get their chance after

He said the pack will rely on

season.

Ellesmere teams shaping up?

•Prebbleton

Prebbleton may have flown

under the radar to achieve their

two semi-final appearances last

year, but with this season being

their centenary, which will be

celebrated over Easter, coach

Tony Martin knows there will

be no sneaking up on them this

season.

“We’ve had a a look at everyone

and the squad is 90 per cent the

same of what it was last year, so

it’s just a case of getting the best

out of them,” he said.

“You’ll only see one centenary

at your club and we’re looking

forward to the game that

dovetails into our centenary

weekend against Lincoln, but

you want to be performing every

week of this season and we know

teams will be looking to knock

us off.”

“We certainly want to be

contenders for both

competitions.”

Martin hopes his squad have

learned from their big match

experience last season and it will

help them in crucial fixtures in

2019.

“We’ll have to be mature

enough to close games out and

that’s not something we had last

year.”

He said Ellesmere and

Canterbury Country

representative Steve Lees-

Godwin will once again lead the

way with Greg Mitchell in the

forwards, along with Tongan

sevens representative Eddie

Sunia, while Tim Murgatroyd

is an experienced and versatile

player in the backs.

•Springston

Last year’s Cinderella story

after debuting in the top division

and making two semi-finals,

Springston will likely get better

as the season goes on, said coach

Anton Sutherland.

”Everyone knows you can’t put

out a soft, second-string team

against us,” he said.

”We’re missing a few guys to

start, but hopefully we’ll have

them all back in a month or so.”

Sutherland said his team

will likely target the Ellesmere

teams and look to get as many

competition points as they can

to have a run at winning the

Coleman Shield at the end of the

season.

“That’s what we did so well last

year was stick with teams, even

if we didn’t win, we picked up

bonus points.”

Sutherland said last year’s

Canterbury B hooker Sam

Cottam will be a big part of the

forward pack, while Cam Powell

will look to ensure Springston’s

backline is positive in attack

and will also handle the kicking

duties.

”Every team wants to think

they can go better than last year,”

Sutherland said. “We have to be

realistic that we may have a tough

first month or so.”

•Southbridge

Arguably the most successful

Ellesmere club of the past decade

had a flat 2018 by their lofty

standards, with two semi-final

appearances and no silverware.

Said co-coach Doug

Maginness: “We struggled a bit

last year, especially with injuries,

and we’re keen to get back to

where we were a couple of years

ago.”

“We aren’t a massive side

around the park but we have

plenty of mobility.”

Maginness said the core of the

squad remained settled but a

fast start in the new condensed

format will be vital.

“The Ellesmere competition

just keeps getting better and

better each year,” he said.

“Of the 10 teams, probably

eight of them could win it.

“The days are gone where you

can get comfortable wins.

“Having a shorter season I

think will see the quality of

rugby improve but it also means

you have to get off to a fast start

because you don’t want to be two

or three games behind.”

Back rower Darryl Lambourn

will set the tone again as the

enforcer of the pack, while Tom

Turner will likely play a key role

at centre after suffering an ACL

injury early last season.

“Tom’s a good communicator

and a strong talker, which is vital

in that position.”

•Burnham-Dunsandel-

Irwell

BDI finished just outside

the top-four of the Ellesmere

competition last year, but have

also had a disjointed preseason

so far.

“We’ve had guys away helping

with the Nelson fires and then

assisting after the events in

Christchurch over the last week

or so,” coach Glenn McGuire

said.

“It is what it is being a militarybased

squad.”

McGuire said his team always

have the ability to score points,

but it is their leaky defence which

has cost them games in the past.

“We’ve always had the

capability of making the top four,

it’s just been a case of putting

it together,” he said. “We have

plenty of points in us, it’s just a

case of sharpening our defence.”

Breaking down the Ellesmere sides

•From page 21

A couple of senior players

up-front will look to bring up

milestones this year, with Gareth

Seymour approaching 300 games

and Roger Mockford eyeing up

150.

“If we can make it to the

(playoffs) that’d be a big

achievement for us.”

“We won our last 10 out of 11

when we had guys on deck so

we’re always a danger, it’s just a

case of keeping guys together,”

McGuire said.

•Lincoln

Lincoln will aim to go back

to their powerful forward pack

to set a platform for victory this

year after a middle-of-the-pack

effort last season, coach Kris

Partridge said

Veteran halfback Jason

Pietzner is sitting on 296 games

for the club after suffering a

detached retina during the preseason,

which ended his 2018

campaign.

“He’s been training with our

division three team but he said

he’d make himself available if we

need him and it’d be nice to get

him to 300 but we’ll see.”

Partridge said his team will

look to target the Ellesmere

derbies.

“We got ourselves up for some

of the bigger games and then let

ourselves down in what some

would consider easier games.”

KEY: Cameron Powell will be an important contributor if

Springston are to build on their first year in division one rugby.

PHOTO: KAREN CASEY

He said the return of Scott

Edmonds to the loose forwards

after a season ending ACL injury

last year is a boost.

”In the backs, we’ll be looking

at our play-makers – Brett

Mather, Harry Millar – to steer

us around the park.

“Traditionally, Lincoln has

always had a strong forward

pack and I think that’ll be our

strength again, but we have some

sharp backs, too.

“Being undefeated at home and

pushing for the playoffs would be

great for us.”

•West Melton

Chris Fifield’s team is aiming

to have a winning record this

season.

”We are similar in personnel

to last year but with good playing

numbers which is exciting,” he

said.

”Our goal is to make the top

four but if we could win more

games than we lose, that’d be

great.

“We’re more organised and

we’re fitter than we were 12

months ago.

“We won’t have a heap of

SPORT

x-factor, but if we play well as a

team, we’ll be right.”

Fifield said much would rely on

Kane Meyerhoff, who will likely

run the backline from the No 10

jersey but can also play halfback.

The forwards will be led by

co-captains Ben Calder and Dan

Cunningham.

•Rolleston

Rolleston just managed to

avoid the Ellesmere competition

wooden spoon last year, and

coach Tim Knowles is hoping an

extended pre-season will see his

team ready come Saturday.

”We’ve been training as a team

since October with a players

academy in an effort to try

something new,” he said.

Knowles said the team is young

with most of the players under

the age of 25.

”We want to be able to match

it physically and start the season

with a hiss and a roar and then

the skills will come with more

game-time,” he said.

”The goal is to push for top

four this year.

“I think we’ll have a good frontrow,

really strong set piece and

we’ve brought some speed into

the team to play that expansive

game that we tend to play.”

Knowles said he would like to

see his team play complete 80min

rugby, as opposed to last year

where they often fell away in the

last 20min.

The team will rely on No 8 Sam

Baird, but will also have 19-yearold

former Canterbury Country

under-18 representative Luke

Inwood at No 10.

•Hornby

Last season’s cellar-dwellers

want to be more competitive this

season.

Coach Steve Fenemor hopes

a larger squad will create more

competition for places and less

fatigue.

“It’s basically the same squad

but with a few extra players,” he

said.

“We’ve got a young squad so we

want to target a couple of games

in each competition and topple a

couple of teams.”

New captain Jaydin Law can

slot in anywhere from first-five to

fullback and Fenemor hopes he

can be a spark in the backline.

In the forwards, front-rower

Francis McGoon will be charged

with laying a good platform for

the young team.

“If we could win four games in

each competition we’d be really

happy.

“We don’t want to be the easybeats

like we were at times last

year.”

SELWYN TIMES

Wild styling for Ford Ranger Raptor

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

PIONEER OF the Ford Motor

Co, and mass production, Henry

Ford once said: “If it ain’t broke,

why fix it?’’

We could say the same today

with one of Ford’s best engines,

the fabulous 3.2-litre five-cylinder

diesel that has given Ranger

ute, and its off-shoot, the Everest

sport utility vehicle, such good

service over the years is now just

an option. The Everest now utilises

a 2-litre, four-cylinder twinturbocharged

diesel which is also

going into the Ranger Wildtrak

and Raptor double-cab utes.

It’s the latter vehicle this evaluation

focuses on, the Raptor is an

upgraded, upmarket version of

the Ranger and it stands out for

its hugely wild looks and aggressive

stance. There’s been a lot of

suspension development work

on Raptor and with its huge tyres

it looks as if it could take on any

challenge.

It’s the development work that

makes the Raptor almost a different

vehicle from Ranger, it

is more comfortable to ride in,

and you can tell immediately

from being in the vehicle that the

suspension is a step up. The ride

is glorious, bumps and ruts are

absorbed willingly, and there’s

very little jiggle associated with

vehicles which utilise a load carrying,

live rear axle.

I don’t know that Ford will get

away unscathed with the new

engine, while it is a beauty in

terms of output, performance

and refinement, educating buyers

that 2-litre is enough in a 2300kg

vehicle will be a big ask.

However, I can report that the

engine is up to task. Ford rate it

with 157kW and a healthy500Nm

of torque, both outputs developed

low at 3750rpm and 1750rpm

respectively.

The engine drives through a

10-speed automatic gearbox.

There is an unmistakeable diesel

throb, but it is well isolated from

the cabin, and with the smooth

gearshifts and seemingly endless

supply of ratios, driveline sophistication

has been a high manufacturing

priority.

Like all diesels, you can also

expect great economy from the

new four-potter. Bear in mind

that the Raptor is a heavy vehicle,

it carries a lot of kit, yet it is

still rated by Ford with a 8.2-litre

per 100km (35mpg) combined

cycle average. I was pleased with

the results appearing on the

trip computer. The best average

FORD RANGER RAPTOR: Four-wheel-drive ute.

readout was showing 9.4l/100km

(30mpg), with an instantaneous

figure of around 6.5l/100km

(44mpg) showing at 100km/h,

the engine loping over at just

1500rpm.

At highway speed the engine is

fully responsive, there was never

a point when I felt it went offboost,

the appropriate gear was

always selected, while response to

accelerator request is instant.

In terms of acceleration, the

Raptor will reach 100km/h from

a standstill in 9sec, it is relatively

quick off the line and will haul

in mid-range speed with strong

boost.

The Raptor lands in New

Zealand in just one variant and

is listed at $84,990. It comes

with all the trick gear Ford

is building into its utes these

days, and with the luxury and

technological specification it’s

hard to fathom it is a five-seater

ute based on rugged go-anywhere

mechanicals.

That comment is based on the

complex four-wheel-drive system,

all options can be initiated

through a centre console-mounted

dial switch.

Grip is supplied through

massive 285/70 x 17in BF

Goodrich all-terrain tyres, and

with an amazing 283mm of

ground clearance the Raptor is a

formidable off-road challenger.

If you think the Raptor is a

vehicle which has the looks but

no substance, it comes with special

interior trim – leather and

suede trim, keyless entry and

• Price – Ford Ranger

Raptor, $84,990

• Dimensions – Length,

5398mm; width, 2028mm;

height, 1873mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1996cc, 157kW, 500Nm,

10-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage – 8.2l/100km

ignition, paddle-shift gear selectors,

special display graphics and

decals, and stop-start engine

technology is all included.

I wouldn’t have been happy if

I hadn’t put the Raptor to good

use. I used the deck area to take

an errant plant that had grown

out of control on the front of

my property to the green waste

depot.

That’s one of the many reasons

I like utes, they are versatile and

practical. I also like the Raptor

for its functionality at the other

end, the new engine is something

that will filter through other Ford

product in time.

The Raptor is certainly

a ute for someone who likes to be

noticed, however, it is far more

than just a show pony. It has by

far class-leading suspension, and

with the well-proven mechanicals

it is based on, it is another model

which will keep Ford and Ranger

market leaders for considerable

time to come.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Street rod racing in

Christchurch this Easter

For just the third time in 30 years, the Street Rod Nationals will be held in Christchurch

over Easter weekend and this year’s, Classic Cover Insurance N.Z. Street Rod

Nationals promises to be a great event for hot rod and other motoring enthusiasts.

The New Zealand Hot Rod Association (NZHRA)

formed in Auckland, in the early sixties. It is the

governing body of over 100 clubs around the country.

The country’s first Hot Rod magazine was published

back in 1967 and is still going strong today.

Most countries in the world, participate in some

form of hot rodding. It is a multi-billion dollar business

in the United States and many local hot rodders bring

totally finished cars in from that country. Thousands of

enthusiasts also go to America each year to visit events

where more than 10,000 cars may be competing, and

to buy specialised parts not available in New Zealand.

By the early 1970s, clubs were able to apply to hold

the Street Rod Nationals and both the NZHRA and

Hot Rod magazine have helped grow this hobby to an

amazing standard in New Zealand. Some of the near

perfect hot rod examples can cost over $150,000.

Since 1990, the Nationals have only been held twice

in Christchurch: the hugely successful 1994 QEII event

which had 360 cars and over 1,000 entrants; and the

2001 event held at the Riccarton Racecourse.

This year’s event will again be held at Riccarton

Racecourse (Racecourse Road, Christchurch) over

Easter weekend. Public day is on Saturday, 20th April

from 9.30am through to 3pm. The cost will be $10 per

adult with children under 15 free.

Car enthusiasts who have not entered will be

able to park in a ‘preferred parking’ area especially

saved for their cool pride and joy.

Major sponsor for the nationals, Classic Cover

Insurance N.Z. will have representatives on site to

provide insurance quotes for cars. They promise to

be very competitive. NZHRA will also have people

available to answer any questions you may have. In

addition, there will be many stalls including those

selling food and drink.

In addition to the show, entrants will compete

in driving events, a car trial, museum visits and

night time functions. So far, only a few local cars

have entered with the majority of entrants coming

from the North Island, including Gary Martin who

is driving down from Hamilton in his steel 1932

Ford 3 Window Coupe with supercharged Ardun

engine.

The Grand National champion hot rods from

the previous Christchurch events will also be on

display. Both are exactly the same as they were

when first built. There are also plans to have a few

partially built rods on show, demonstrating what is

involved in their construction.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Expert polishers

When you have metal components in

need of polishing and buffing you want a

proper job.

Eric and Fred Williams have operated

Escort Metal Polishers for 45 years and

in that time have worked on all kinds of

metal finishing jobs. Whether it is metal

polishing or abrasive (sand) blasting they

are the experts.

They will strip down components and

polish them, lacquering fixtures like light

fittings and door knobs and organising

chroming, brass plating and aluminium

anodising where required, making them a

one-stop shop.

“People come to us knowing the whole

job will be taken care of, easier and faster,”

says Fred.

From small jobs for those restoring a

motor vehicle or renovating a home, to

work for large companies, the team at

Escort Metal Polishers take it in their

stride.

“We do lots of one-off jobs for people

coming in off the street as well as many large

runs for engineers, building companies,

automotive specialists, panel beaters, auto

restorers and other businesses,” adds Fred.

Over the years, the team have abrasive

blasted motor bike frames, worked on

countless mag wheels, cleaned up

house lots of door and window

handles, and looked after numerous

marine work for people renovating

or restoring boats where the brass

fittings need cleaning and chrome

plating. No wonder, the work of

Escort Metal Polishers can be seen

all around the city.

Examples of their work include

the large canoe like sculptures

standing around 40 feet tall outside

the Christchurch Art Gallery;

fittings within the new Christchurch

Hospital and justice precinct;

and the restored Christchurch

Town Hall’s brass kick plates, stair

banisters, hand rails and more.

The team always endeavour to

work in with customer timeframes,

turning work around quickly. Sandblasting

is almost always taken care of within two

days while polishing usually takes a week

and chrome plating around three weeks.

With few polishers now in business, you

can be assured of experience, expertise and

knowledge at Escort Metal Polishers. They

understand all aspects of metal polishing

and abrasive blasting ensuring a high

quality finish no matter what the job.

To learn more you can call Escort

Metal Polishers on 366 2708, email

Hawdon Street in Sydenham). They will

PETS & PAWS

Choosing holiday

care for your pets

Winter is traditionally a time when

people like to head overseas for their

holidays – a chance to escape the cold

and enjoy another summer in a warmer

climate.

The dilemma of what to do with your

pets when you are planning an extended

time away is part of owning a pet or two.

Just like booking your airline tickets and

accommodation in advance, you also

need to decide where and how your pet

will be looked after.

Depending on how many animals you

have and what type of animal they are

will help you choose a carer or facility

that will keep your pet safe, happy, and

secure during your time away.

A number of options are available and

include a cattery, kennels, homesits or

daily visits to your home.

Catteries and Kennels

When choosing a cattery or kennel,

make an appointment to visit the facility

and meet the owner and staff so that you

can discuss the level of care available.

Remember that not all facilities are equal

– some may have bigger or smaller spaces

and it will be up to you to work out how

your pet will fit in and be happy while in

residence. You will also need to have all

your pet’s vaccinations, flea, and worm

treatments up to date.

Homesits

Pet homesitting is a poplar option for

pet owners who are planning on being

away for a while, have several pets or

who have a pet that does not like to be

taken out of its environment. The pet

sitter will move into your home and ‘live’

with your pets while you are away. The

benefit of this is that your pet will have

all day care and company plus you’ll have

the comfort and security of knowing

your home is being looked after, too. The

homesitter may also be responsible for

other duties too such as collecting your

mail, watering the garden and mowing

the lawns.

Daily Pet Visits

Pet care home visits are often suitable

for short holidays – over a weekend or up

to a week. The petsitter will visit your pets

daily to feed, exercise and generally care

for your pets. A visit may be half an hour

to an hour depending on the number of

pets. The petsitter may also water plants,

collect mail and generally keep an eye on

the security of your property.

Whatever pet care

you choose, make

sure that you and your

pet are comfortable

with your choice so

you can have a happy

time away knowing

your pet is in good

hands.

Gardening

Editorial supplied by

www.gardener.kiwi

Setting up small spaces in your back yard

• By Hannah Zwartz

WHAT’S A ‘small’ garden?

Usually urban, it could be many

things – a strip between front

fence and veranda, a pocketsized

backyard, a courtyard or

patio, or even a balcony.

What all small gardens have

in common is that (as with tiny

houses) every centimetre counts.

Design needs to be pared back

and concentrated, including only

what’s essential.

There’s something very restful

about this. The beauty of a small

garden is you can probably

spend more per square metre

on soil, paving and plants.

Less weeding and watering

means more time to relax and

appreciate your sanctuary.

And the more urban your

environment, the more valuable

your green space becomes.

Making your space a

pleasurable place to be starts

with the physical elements: sun/

shade, wind, views and access

to water (see the list on page

53 for hints on mapping these).

Then there are the human needs.

What do you use the garden

for – cooking and entertaining?

A private retreat? Extra living

space? A wild space for kids to

play? Growing vegetables, fruit

or herbs? Even a small garden

space can meet all these needs.

Built-in structures need to

multitask. Steps and decking

can double as seating, as can

generous built-in edges on a

raised bed or sandpit. Screens

to give privacy (or hide the

bins) can double as supports

for cucumbers or sweet peas.

For shade structures, adaptable

options like umbrellas,

retractable awnings/sails or

pergolas planted with deciduous

vines give you options for more

sun in winter and less in summer.

When it comes to planting,

choose carefully. Cramming lots

of different colours and textures

into a small area is like a room

filled with clutter – it makes the

space seem smaller. Growing

in pots gives you the chance to

change things around, but a few

large pots are easier to care for

than many little ones, which dry

out quickly.

Simplifying your planting

palette can make a small space

look bigger. Plants with large

leaves, such as monstera, fig

or taro, seem to be closer than

they are, so backing them with

fine-textured plants creates an

illusion of distance. Blur the

boundaries by covering at least

some of the walls or fences with

vines, or tall upright plants

like rushes or bamboo (wellcontained

to prevent a takeover).

Look at the plants’ eventual size

and choose those that won’t

outgrow their space.

Small gardens often have

corners of full shade, so avoid

slippery paving in these areas.

Instead, make the most of them

for shade-loving plants like ferns

and mosses, which hate to dry

out.

Even a small garden has room

for edibles – maybe not all your

favourite vegetables, but you

can start with fresh salad greens

and herbs. Lots of veges thrive

in containers, and dwarf fruit

trees can grow in a barrel if given

plenty of liquid feed. If you only

have room for one fruit tree,

choose your very favourite – for

me, it would have to be a lemon

tree for the fragrance of its

flowers as well as the flavour of

its fruits.

IMAGINATION: Above –

Cramming a lot of different

plants into a space can make

it seem smaller. Left – Curate

your small carden – a few

choice plants will make your

space appear bigger. Below

left – Even with limited space

you can still have your own

oasis. Below – Fit more plants

in with pots on patio areas –

try a few large ones for easy

care.

four double bedrooms and a bathroom. Heating varies between each property with some including log burners

while others benefit from multiple heat pumps. Depending on your course of action, you could repair, renovate and

add value to each of the dwellings. Developers with an eye to the future may have more radical plans in mind, in this

flourishing community setting. With Lincoln University located across the road, this property is also zoned for

Lincoln Primary and Lincoln High School. Investors and developers will recognise the undeniable potential on offer.

What the new anti-money

laundering laws mean for

property transactions

New rules designed to stamp out money

laundering and financing terrorism in New

Zealand mean that the real estate industry must

prove the identities of the people it works with.

You might think that criminal financial

activities only happen in the movies or overseas,

but it’s estimated that $1.35 billion is laundered

in New Zealand every year. The true cost, and

social impact, is much higher. Criminals use

various methods to ‘wash’ the money they make

from crimes to avoid detection. Making it look

like it’s come from a legitimate source – such

as buying or selling property or using financial

services – is an established way to do it. Now,

thanks to law changes that came into force on

January 1, 2019, you’ll have to prove who you

are when you’re buying or selling a property.

If you’ve bought and sold a property before

you’ll know that each real estate transaction is a

bit like a jigsaw puzzle. All the people involved

– banks or lenders, lawyers and real estate

agents - play a part to help protect the integrity

of the transaction and ensure that the puzzle

pieces fit together correctly. This includes

making sure that the client is who they say they

are to help reduce the risk of criminal activity.

While it may seem a bit of a pain, the real

estate agent must confirm your identity,

including your date of birth and your address

details, before you sign an agency agreement

with them. This might seem a bit ridiculous if

you’ve known the agent for a long time, or even

used their agency before, but it’s all part of the

due diligence they need to perform to meet the

new rules.

The information you’re asked for will

vary depending on whether you’re selling

the property as an individual or as part of a

partnership, company, estate or trust. If you’re

selling as an individual, you’ll need to provide

photo ID and be ready to answer any other

questions the agency may have. If you’re selling

a family trust property, you’ll need to provide

this kind of verified identification for all the

members of the trust and its beneficiaries.

Ideally, these requirements won’t slow down

the process at all. It’s a good idea to get as much

documentation ready as you can – when you’re

talking to an agent, ask them what they’d like

you to bring along. Complying with anti-money

laundering rules is like completing any part of

the real estate transaction: it works best when

everyone follows the process.

For more information on buying or

selling property in New Zealand, check

Can I trust a seller’s building report?

If you’ve been to an open home recently, or

been browsing the ‘for sale’ adverts, you might

have noticed that some sellers put together

information packs for potential buyers. These

sellers will know that researching a property

takes time and money, and they don’t want this

to be a barrier to a successful sale. They believe

that providing information like a LIM (a Land

Information Memorandum from the local

council) and a building inspection report can help

busy people get an offer on the table. This is great

in theory, but you need to tread carefully all the

same.

If, for example, a real estate agent or seller

gives you a LIM for the property, check carefully

when it was prepared. A LIM is a summary of

all the current property information held by the

different departments at a council at the time. It

contains details of council consents for any work

done, how much the rates are and information

on any geographic hazards that might have an

impact on the property, such as subsidence. Bear

in mind that this information can be reasonably

general – the LIM for most houses in Wellington

will say that they’re located in a high wind area,

for example. If the LIM is dated a couple of weeks

ago, it’s safe to assume it’s reasonably up to date.

If it’s dated a year ago, it’s a good idea to make

further enquiries. Getting a LIM costs money in

most areas (prices vary from council to council).

You can also ask to see the property file held by

the council, which holds other information about

a property, like a site map and original house

plans.

Building reports are a bit trickier. Using a

building report provided by the seller (or the

real estate agent working for them) may seem

like an easy option in the short term. However,

if you buy the property and then find problems

with it that cost a significant amount to fix, you’re

not protected by the building report because the

inspector’s contract is with the seller, not you. The

Real Estate Authority (REA) recommends using

an accredited property inspector who complies

with the New Zealand building inspection

standard 4306:2005. Their written report will

identify any current defects as well as highlight

any urgent and long-term maintenance required.

Look for someone who has a good level of

indemnity insurance, as this will protect you if

you buy the property and then find you need to

fix something that wasn’t in the report. Building

inspections do come at a cost, but we think it’s

worth it to be sure that you’re fully aware of what

you’re signing up for. Depending on the age of the

house you’re looking at don’t necessarily expect

a thin report saying there are no issues. Many

wooden houses in New Zealand are over 50 years

old and there will be things the inspector needs

to point out. Make sure you understand what

normal age-related matters are (that may not be

major issues), compared to significant repairs

needed in the short term to fix a problem. The

report you receive should separate these things

out - if it doesn’t, then ask the inspector about the

difference.

If you end up with a report with a lot of

information about the property it doesn’t mean

you should walk away. Instead, see it as giving

you the opportunity to know what you’re buying.

Doing this before you make an offer means you

are fully aware of what the property may need to

have done to it and your offer figure can reflect

that. However, if you don’t feel comfortable

paying for a building report before you make

an offer, you can make a property inspection a

condition of your offer. Like most things in life,

buying a property will go more smoothly if you

put the work in. If a short cut seems too good to

be true, it usually is.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Sustainable

residential living

Eco-design for healthy and

sustainable living is the aim for

Lincoln’s newest residential

housing subdivision.

Located near Lincoln

University, Verdeco Park covers 90

hectares of land divided into 225

lots of 113 standard residential

sections between 600sqm

and 1,000sqm, and 112 rural

residential lots of 3,000-6,000sqm

(all TC1 land).

While on the doorstep of

Lincoln and within walking

distance of shops, Verdeco

Park is surrounded by rural

land, unlikely to be rezoned

residential, meaning the subdivision will

be its own community with a small town

feel.

Officially launched in October last year,

the developers have received considerable

interest in their latest subdivision with

many private buyers looking to build their

dream family home in a relaxed attractive

setting where there is wide and open

public green reserves.

Developer, Shane Kennedy says the

larger sections are proving very popular.

Many people are attracted by the features

Verdeco Park will offer. These include

native plantings, larger trees, walk and

cycle ways, and a community orchard.

Shane admits Verdeco Park is a

subdivision he too wants to live in.

The promise of more spacious living

is exciting potential buyers to Verdeco

Park and the developers are helping

those looking to build there, by providing

information on how to achieve a healthier

home. The aim is to create a subdivision

which truly embraces eco design and

sustainable living.

“When it comes to building healthier

warmer homes, New Zealand’s building

standard is around 25 years behind many

countries with Europe and America

well ahead. We’d like to see the homes at

Verdeco Park built above New Zealand

building code. It doesn’t cost much more

to build a better home,” explains Shane.

The Verdeco Park team are holding

seminars which look at the difference

between standard and insulated walls and

foundations, as well as ventilation and

eco sustainable products, along with what

makes an environmentally friendly home.

Shane says it is as much about cooling

our houses down in summer

as it is about heating them up

in winter with aspects such as

positioning for the sun, ensuring

sufficient overhang and installing

solar energy all making a

difference.

“We’re not prescribing the

products to be used or how

homes are to be built. We’re

simply providing information

about what is available and

how certain building products

might be better yet not much

more expensive. It allows people

looking to build to have a better

understanding of their options for a

healthier home,” adds Shane.

They have also looked at the degree

of building wastage with some builders

already addressing ways to minimise this.

The next seminar will be held in

April with some Verdeco Park

purchasers and suppliers sharing

their experiences on how to build

a healthy eco-friendly home. To

Building blocks

to a new home

When building a new home, here’s a reminder

to pay attention to some of the fine details...

Anyone intending to build a new home

should have the builder’s contract checked

out by an experienced lawyer.

A payment schedule can also minimise

financial risks. Issues that you may have to

deal with include:

the deposit, guarantees and warranties

If you want to compare building

companies, it’s important to get down

to finer details such as how many power

points there are per room, the type of

windows you are having or which paint

finishes are included.

Questions to ask builders include:

• Do you have a

completion guarantee

and how does it work?

• Is there a loss of

deposit guarantee?

• Is the company a

Registered Master

Builder and does

it use third-party

written guarantees?

• What is the schedule

for payments?

• How are the deposit

and progress

payments

administered?

• Are they held in a solicitor’s trust fund?

• Will the master franchisor complete

the build if the franchisee goes out of

business

• What are the exact specs?

• Are the prices fixed?

• What is excluded from the build?

• Are there any restrictions on

driveways or any other connections?

• Can you speak with clients who have

just completed a build?

Do your homework before you decide on a

building company and you will have a less

stressful time once the building process

starts.

Tips On Buying A Bach

Having a place to get away from it all is

an attractive prospect. It’s easy to fall in

love with the thought of your own slice of

paradise, particularly if it’s in a popular spot.

But buying a holiday property, whether it’s

a bach at the beach or a rural idyll, is every

bit as complex as buying a home that you

live in full-time. That means you need to do

your homework first to avoid any hassles

– and that you engage a lawyer to help you

through the process.

Once you’ve found a property you like,

it’s essential that you and your lawyer look

at all the relevant documents, such as the

legal title and any information that the

council has about the property, as recorded

on the LIM. A title search will reveal any

‘invisible’ issues relating to the boundary

or access. You should also check with the

council whether there are any proposed

developments in the area that could

have an impact on the property and the

neighbourhood.

It’s a good idea to get the property

thoroughly checked by someone who can

identify significant defects, future or urgent

maintenance issues and problems caused by

gradual deterioration. It’s not uncommon

for a coastal holiday property to have a

few more maintenance issues than you

might expect from a city townhouse. We

recommend using a qualified and insured

building inspector to do this work.

If you get a DIY guru friend in to have a

look instead, ask them to look for structural

problems, any evidence that the property is

a leaky building, issues caused by deferred

maintenance (such as weatherboards rotting

due to peeling paint)

and areas where there is

damp or mould. Simple

things like aged electrical

or water supply fixtures

may also create headaches

later on if not managed

up front. Don’t forget to

factor in costs for fixing

any identified problems

that may be significantly

more involved to manage

than town repairs and

maintenance, as well as

plan for long-term upkeep.

Depending on where the property is,

you also need to be hard-headed about the

risk of natural hazards such as tsunami or

coastal erosion. Earlier this year, a report

commissioned by the Deep South National

Science Challenge pointed out that nearly

44,000 homes in New Zealand are less

than 1.5 metres above the current average

spring high tide mark. With rising sea levels

and increasing likelihood of storm surges

and king tides predicted, many of these

properties are at serious risk of frequent

inundation. Unsurprisingly, insurers are

nervy about this, with some companies

already raising premiums or excesses for

properties that have been identified as highrisk,

or putting restrictions on what they

will cover. It can be difficult to get finance

approved if a property cannot be insured, so

it pays to investigate this closely.

If you get through all those steps and the

property still looks like a good bet, think

about the long-term. Are you thinking about

using it to earn an income when you’re

not in residence, such as renting it out or

putting it on AirBnB or a similar platform?

Be aware that some councils are tightening

up restrictions on homeowners doing this,

which could affect your plans and costs.

Take a moment to think about security as

well. Getting settled in your new holiday

home is one thing, but consider what

happens when you’re not there.

Finally, if the property you are keen on is

being sold privately, be aware that you may

have fewer protections under the Consumer

Guarantees Act and the Fair Trading Act if

things go wrong. While no one enters into

a sale thinking that problems are going to

arise, issues can often crop up. Nothing

will dim your holiday glow like the lasting

memory of a poorly researched property

decision.
