Shock after plaques stolen

from Springston Cemetery

• By Anan Zaki

“I CAN’T fathom why somebody

would do it.”

That’s the reaction of Lincoln

resident Bruce Tweedy who is in

disbelief over the theft of a bronze

plaque on his parents’ grave from

Springston Cemetery.

The bronze plaque was one of at

least 40 that were stolen from the

cemetery between Anzac Day and

last Thursday.

Most of the plaques were for

servicemen in a designated part

of the cemetery. Metallic plaques

have been taken from other graves

in the cemetery.

Police said they have no leads

and have asked for public help.

Mr Tweedy’s father Errol served

in the Middle East in World War

2. He has been resting at the

cemetery since 1998. Mr Tweedy’s

mother Marion died in 1990 and is

also buried there.

“Of all places they chose there. I

just couldn’t believe it, I was blown

away,” Mr Tweedy said.

The thefts have affected the

Springston community, he said.

“To think somebody could do

that, with no feeling when they

were doing it. These guys fought

for our country and some of them

lost their lives.”

SELWYN TIMES

I’M SURE there’s many in the Lincoln

Springston areas who would like to get

their hands on the low lifes who have

stolen plaques from graves (see page 1).

Taking the plaques from the cemetery

can only be described as despicable.

As Bruce Tweedy, who features in our article says: “I can’t

fathom why somebody would do it.”

The plaques would have been taken to sell as scrap metal,

so let’s hope where ever they turn up the scrap yard has some

record of who brought them in for sale.

Punishment: Maybe use the low lifes for Springston and Lincoln

rugby tackling practice. Bring back the stiff arm head high

to show younger players what they were once like, I say,

They’d run a mile.

RURAL DARFIELD residents

were left feeling frustrated after a

meeting with the district council

over sealing a shingle road.

Wards Rd residents met

with Mayor Sam Broughton,

council assets manager Murray

Washington and district

councillor Bob Mugford last

week. The meeting came after

the Selwyn Times revealed the

residents’ 17-year battle to seal

pot-holed Wards Rd between

Charing Cross and Greendale Rd

in last week’s edition.

Resident Grant Prescott said

little progress was made from

the meeting, aside from the

suggestion they put together

submission for a council

meeting.

“I think it’s going to take a

serious injury or a death on this

road for them to actually do

something,” Mr Prescott said.

“I was a police officer in charge

of a road traffic policing unit in

the UK and I’m going to present

[to the council] on the basis that

if someone gets killed, it’s too

late.”

He served in the North Yorkshire

police for 20 years.

Mr Broughton told the Selwyn

Times, the district council

understood safety concerns

from Wards Rd residents, and

encouraged them to put together

a submission.

Unsealed roads make up 45 per

cent of the road network in the

district, but only carried 5 per

cent of traffic, he said.

“The council decided in

2007 to focus its road spending

on areas of growth that were

impacting roads,” Mr Broughton

said. That remained the policy,

he said.

Mr Prescott said it was “only a

matter of time” before someone

gets killed on Wards Rd.

CHANGE IS coming for

kerbside recycling collection in

the district, with plastic bags

given the bin.

From July 1, plastic shopping

bags will need to go in the red

bin – rather than the yellow

kerbside recycling bin, the district

council said.

Council solid waste manager

Andrew Boyd said the decision

is a result of the falling number

of bags, following the decision

by major supermarkets and the

Government to phase them out.

The number of plastic bags

going into bins in the district has

been falling since the start of the

year, Mr Boyd said, matching

the change around the country.

Plastics that are marked as

compostable or biodegradable

also need to be put into the red

bin or composted at home.

Outrage over wastewater funding

• By Anan Zaki

THE UPPER Selwyn Huts

community is outraged after

it was made to fund its own

wastewater system.

The district council voted last

Wednesday – ruling that the

residents would have to pay in

full for a wastewater scheme,

when its current scheme expires

in June 2020.

The two wastewater options

proposed by the council would

cost $2.9 million and $6.2 million.

Residents advocated they

should be able to pay for its new

wastewater scheme through a

targeted rate, like other parts of

the district.

Upper Selwyn Huts resident

Graham Evans felt the community

of about 100 households

near Lake Ellesmere was being

ignored.

He and other residents –

Collin Giddens and Graeme

Young – presented to the district

council last week, pleading their

case for a targeted rate.

“The decision disgusts three of

our members,” Mr Evans said.

“The problem we are concerned

with is, why are they

[council] discriminating us from

being off targeted rating?”

The district council’s external

consultation – completed by

Development Matters – also recommended

to include the Upper

Selwyn Huts in the district rating

scheme.

But district council chief

executive David Ward told the

Selwyn Times that its position to

decline targeted rates was due to

climate change.

He said the Upper Selwyn

Huts has limited time due to

climate change and forecast sea

level rises this century. Therefore,

the council did not believe it was

right for ratepayers elsewhere in

the district to pay for its wastewater

system.

“The council’s opinion is that

there is an issue of fairness in

asking the entire district to pay

for a wastewater system at Upper

Selwyn Huts given the uncertain,

but clearly limited, time frame

that any new wastewater system

would be in use,” Mr Ward said.

The National Institute of Water

and Atmospheric Research states

that by 2050, sea levels will rise

between 0.15m and 0.3m.

“We had a flood which took

the lake [Ellesmere] up to 2.1m

and we still weren’t under water,”

Mr Young said.

He felt the district council is

“hiding behind” climate change

to not fund the system.

Based on the two options tabled

by the district council, each

household in the Upper Selwyn

Huts now faces $30,000 or

$64,500 to pay for a wastewater

system.

Mr Young said the residents

could not afford that.

They will now work with the

district council to look at a way

to reduce the costs of a new

wastewater system, he said.

“We’re getting involved to

make sure the cost is down.”

Said Mr Ward: “There are a

range of situations across council

services where individuals or

individual communities pay

directly for the service they

receive and the council feels it is

reasonable given the unique situation

in this case to ask the direct

beneficiaries of the system to pay

for it given that situation.”

STOLEN: Bronze

Cemetery.

Bronze stolen from cemetery

•From page 1

The district council –

which manages the cemetery

– believes it is the first

time a theft of this nature

has occurred in the district.

“Council is co-ordinating

the replacement of the

plaques with Veterans Affairs

and that will be done at no

cost to the families,” a district

council spokesman said.

It is working to get in

touch with all affected

families.

Springs RSA president

Ivan Norton – who served

in the Korean War in the

1950s – said the community

has been hit hard by

the thefts.

“It definitely is an awful

thing to happen. You don’t

expect people to interfere

with a cemetery like that,”

he said.

“But I’m afraid that’s the

sort of people we’ve got

today,” Mr Norton said.

He said there was anger

in the community following

the thefts.

“There is no CCTV

at the cemetery, or any

other evidence, to enable

us to identify who might

be responsible,” the police

spokeswoman said.

Mr Tweedy said he has

little hope in finding the

bronze plaques.

“Whether we need to

look to CCTV cameras

there now I don’t know.

I wouldn’t have thought

we got to that stage in this

country to have CCTV

cameras in the bloody

cemetery.”

•If anyone has

information about the

missing plaques, phone

police on 378 0160. If

you have a relative with

a missing plaque and

haven’t heard from the

district council, phone

Green light for Rolleston Limes

• By Anan Zaki

Pat McEvedy

LIME SCOOTERS will be

trialled for six months in

Rolleston once niggling issues

are worked through.

District councillors voted

to allow the trial when Lime

has worked with council staff

on issues of speed, costs, geofencing,

public

education and

potential bylaw

impacts. The

proposal is to

introduce 200

scooters in

Rolleston.

Presentation

and

debate on the

shared electric scooter network

– which lasted more than an

hour – included accusations of

predetermination. Councillors

voted eight to three in favour of

looking at a trial period.

A commence date for the

trial will be known once safety

and other issues are worked

through by Lime and district

council staff. Said Councillor Pat

McEvedy: “I have major concerns

around safety. I really do.”

Lime said its scooters are geofenced

on its smartphone app

– meaning it has the ability to

block users from locking scooters

and to slow it down. But Lime

said it cannot stop a scooter from

exiting the geo-fence.

Cr McEvedy said the geo-fencing

was “average” and needed

to be looked at. “I’m not against

Lime Scooters, I’m against Lime

Scooters at this time.”

There was also danger in the

scooters being ridden on open

highways, Cr McEvedy said.

In deputations presented

to the meeting, Christchurch

City Councillor Deon Swiggs

–representing himself – also

made a submission in favour of

the scooters. During the debate,

Councillor Mark Alexander

• For: Crs Hasson, Bland,

Morten, Lyall, Miller,

Watson, Lemon and Mayor

•Against: Crs McEvedy,

Reid, Mugford

tried to stop Councillor Craig

Watson from voting on the

subject due to a Facebook post.

Cr Watson wrote on Facebook,

saying: “I want to be very

clear, I will be voting against

the staff recommendation

unless considerable detail is

presented the council meeting on

Wednesday.”

Said Cr Alexander: “A

councillor has already by his

public statements indicated that

he has predetermined his point

of view on this issue.”

“He [Cr Watson] should

be excluded on the basis of

predetermination.”

In response to Cr Alexander’s

allegation, Mayor Sam

Broughton asked Cr Watson if

he was present at the meeting

with an open mind. Cr Watson

told Mr Broughton that he

“absolutely” had an open mind.

Mr Broughton said he was satisfied

with Cr Watson voting.

The trial will make Rolleston

the fifth place in the country to

allow the scooters.

Former Mayor Bill

Woods

writes

about

current

Mayor

Sam

Broughton

changing

his tune over whether

ratepayers should help

pay for the proposed

multi-use arena in

Christchurch

It was reported in the

Selwyn Times that Mayor

Sam Broughton has now

changed his mind on contributing

to the stadium,

due to Christchurch, not

asking for a donation –

plus Selwyn people have

not been consulted.

Christchurch did not

have to ask, Sam offered to

make a donation without

consultation of Selwyn

people.

Need I remind you, that

when someone offers assistance,

you are not expected

to ask.

A polite refusal, if it is

not required, is considered

manners and no refusal

was given to my knowledge.

The mayor’s rationalisation

for making the offer

was that people of Selwyn

pay something towards

the cost, they were free to

make use of the stadium

if they chose to, as it is a

Canterbury asset – not just

a Christchurch one.

That has not changed,

but the approach of the

mayor has.

If it hadn’t, he would

still be of the same view,

committed to his first

statement and would

not fabricate a feeble

excuse like Christchurch

did not request any money

or to consult Selwyn

Yeah, right!

The mayor is committed

to the principle that the

asset is free for all to make

use of, not just the locals,

as it is firmly locked in at

Selwyn with the new rating

system, combining all halls

and reserves regardless of

location or accessibility,

with the same value of rate.

Some towns, with their

privately owned hall, now

pay rates that will not be

used to finance their hall,

but used for facilities that

are included in the council

owned list.

Under the previous

system if targeted rating

existed the rates went to

that hall not other distant

ones never used by them.

So now we have a mayor

that has the ability to

change his principles to

suit the situation.

A reader responds

to last week’s article

about the shingle

section of Wards Rd

not being sealed

Linda Griffith - I live

on Stephens Rd, Leeston

which is also a shingle

road albeit short, with

only six entrances onto the

road.

It does carry a fair bit

of traffic, a lot of which is

heavy goods or vehicles

with trailers.

I drive a small car

and at the moment the

road in places is almost

impassable.

Okay, maybe if you have

a large four-wheel-drive,

but for me and others, that

is not the case.

I have contacted the

council a number of times

over the last few weeks, I

even have a job number,

but that, it seems, is as far

as its goes.

I bought the house

knowing it was on a

shingle road, but had

expected the road to

be kept in a driveable

condition, which in places

it certainly is not.

I pay, as do we all, quite a

bit in rates.

We have our own well ,

our own septic tank, have

to wheel our bin to the end

of the road for collection,

no street lights and now an

almost impassable road.

What do I pay for is

schools, libraries and the

swimming pool all of

which I am happy to do.

But please just keep the

road passable so I am able

to drive along without

being shaken to death.

I am going to the council

and finding how much

of my rates go towards

the roads and I am going

to withhold that amount

until I can drive along my

road without my teeth

banging together – watch

this space.

Bill Woods – Is our

council for real with its

policy on seal extensions?

One can only say

the council members

are away with the fairies

and should resign if

they approve of such an

unbelievable policy for seal

extensions.

To demand that the

residents pay the whole

cost of the road sealing

and the maintenance for

the next 10 years is beyond

comprehension, requiring

serious questioning of

those who supported this

policy to hold a position of

an elected member.

Thank goodness it is

election year.

We just might be able to

correct this situation.

Catholic church ready to reopen

THE CATHOLIC Parish of

Lincoln is holding an open day

to look through its new “longawaited”

church on Gerald St,

Lincoln.

The event will be held on May

26. Parishioners will be available

on the day to meet and greet all

who visit the new church, which

cost about $3 million to rebuild.

The sod was turned on June 20

last year, and now more than 10

months later, the church is “so

looking forward” to the opening,

St Patrick’s Parish Pastoral

Council chairwoman Patricia

Smith said.

It seats 200 people and features

an internal timber structure and

exterior cedar timber cladding.

Damage from the 2010 and

2011 Canterbury earthquakes

meant the original church – built

in 1957 – had to be demolished.

Since demolition eight years

ago, Catholic church-goers in

the area have been hosted by the

Anglican community.

“The Catholic community

has been truly grateful to the

generosity and hospitality of Rev

Mark Barlow and the Anglican

community for the use of their

churches at Lincoln, Springston

and Rolleston over the past eight

years,” Mrs Smith said.

All Catholic churches are kept

Top three finishes for Selwyn ploughers

STRONG: Retired Lincoln farmer John Stalker finished third in

the vintage tractor plough.

• By Anan Zaki

TWO PLOUGHERS from

the district achieved top three

finishes in the New Zealand

Ploughing Championships over

the weekend.

Courtney farmer Ashley

Seaton came second in the

reversible plough and retired

Lincoln farmer John Stalker

finished third in the vintage

tractor plough.

Meanwhile in the silver

plough, Kirwee farmers Simon

Reed and Jeff Cridge finished

fourth and fifth respectively.

The competition was held

at the Wilkinson’s Farm in

Chertsey.

The event was hosted by

the Rakaia Ploughing Match

Association.

President John Davison said

match ploughing as a sport dates

back to the 19th century.

“When it started there were

only horses ploughing and

the last of them [horses]

ploughed competitively in the

late 1940s or early 1950s,” Mr

Davison said.

But popularity in clydesdale

Full competition line-up for piper

The competition is an invitational

Inverness.

Campbell said he is “very excited”

VITTORIA

& Matt

Change in nap time

FOR THE last week or so, I’ve lost

the dream. Vittoria only has one

short nap a day now.

Gone are the days of regular

quiet coffee breaks or enjoying

lunch without the world’s cutest

magpie lurking about.

She now crashes out just before

her lunch time and sleeps for, at

max, 40min.

She then runs out into the lounge

to laugh at me while I try and gulp

down my remaining food before

she scabs it off me. Truly adorable.

The flip side of this is that she

is incredibly easy to get down at

bedtime. Like “in-a-deep-sleepbefore-you-even

take-her-to-thebedroom”

easy.

As I write this she is deeply and

peacefully asleep and got that way

almost instantly after finishing her

bottle at 5.30pm.

She’ll likely even sleep until the

same time as she normally does.

Or at least quietly sit up and chat to

herself until the time she normally

gets up.

On Tuesday morning she woke

me up by gently touching my nose

at 5am (yeah, cot thing is still not

going great), then lay back down

until 6.30am.

Boom, practically a sleep-in.

But even a sleep-in doesn’t quite

make transitioning to a one short

nap reality any easier. That’s over an

hour of extra toddler entertaining/

wrangling each day. With increasingly

poor weather.

On that note, we’re going on a

family holiday to the West Coast.

You know, because it rains there

a lot. Unless you prepare for rain,

in which case it will be the perfect

sunny day.

If we successfully make it

through the trip over the Southern

Alps with a toddler, we’ll be spending

a couple of days . . . no, hold on.

Vittoria just ran head first into

the lounge crying and looking for a

cuddle because she definitely went

to bed way too early because her

one and only nap was in the car

today. So cute.

Hold up. Cool, she’s back in bed.

So the trip . . . no, she’s back and is

just standing in the corner chatting.

I’ve got to get her back into bed

or I’ll be up all night.

And she’s back.

I’ll fill you in all about the trip

next week.

Meat found on vegan pizza

• By Katie Harris

DOMINO’S PIZZA has

apologised for meat on a vegan

pizza from its Rolleston store.

Kate Williams ordered two

vegan pizzas from Domino’s

Rolleston, but when they arrived,

she and her husband discovered

what looked like several pieces of

meat on both of the pizzas.

“I noticed the first piece of

meat sitting out in the open,

then two more that were easily

discernible. I grabbed a fork and

checked under the bits of mushroom

and spinach, and realised

that there were at least seven

pieces on just the one pizza,”

she said. The pair returned to

the store, where a staff member

apologised and they were offered

a replacement pizza and a dessert,

which was also not vegan.

Mrs Williams said she and her

husband were shocked that the

meat was added to their pizza

topping and no one in the store

noticed.

“I find it very hard to reconcile

that someone could miss that

much meat being accidentally

added while preparing a vegan

pizza,” she said.

Though they had not eaten

the meat, she said it was hard

handling “pieces of flesh.”

Mrs Williams posted her

experience on the Vegans of

DISCOVERY: Meat was found on a vegan pizza from Rolleston

Domino’s.

Aotearoa New Zealand Facebook

page and her story got more than

70 comments and 78 reactions.

The experience made Mrs

Williams and her husband, who

are committed vegans, question

going to non-vegan restaurants

for fear of cross-contamination

or this happening again.

“I would still like to support

non-vegan establishments who

are now providing vegan options,

but if they cannot be bothered

to ensure a reasonable level of

care and knowledge by their staff

when preparing this, then they

should not be offering them,” she

said.

A spokesperson from

Domino’s New Zealand

said it had clearly let its

customers down, which was

disappointing.

“We pride ourselves on

offering our vegan customers

choice, something we are very

passionate about.”

The spokesperson said

Domino’s has strict food

handling processes and will be

educating and retraining the staff

members involved.

Whilst it may seem like the

only people who will need the

Westpac Rescue Helicopter are

adrenaline junkies or tampers,

hiking in some remote part of

New Zealand, thousands of kiwis

every year discover that Chopper

Country is closer than they may

think.

7,225 kiwis, to be exact, were

rescued last year across New

Zealand. The Westpac Rescue

Helicopter responded to broken

legs at favourite picnic spots,

motor vehicle accidents on the

road to the bach, and medical

incidents in the home.

It was at home, around 5am,

that 13-year-old Jazmin stopped

breathing after a severe asthma

attack had rendered her

unconscious and convulsing.

The alarm was raised and, while

her step-father performed CPR,

the Westpac Rescue Helicopter

was dispatched. Although she

doesn’t recall the helicopter ride,

she is forever grateful for the

rescue team’s swift response.

Jazmin tells us, “I probably

wouldn’t be here to play with

my younger sister if the rescue

helicopter didn’t come to help

me.”

In Selwyn, the rescue helicopter

responded to 71 emergency

callouts in 2018, the majority

of these responding to motor

vehicle accidents, transporting

critically ill patients to

Christchurch Hospital for

specialist care. “Canterbury’s

Westpac Rescue Helicopter is

the lifeline to Selwyn and the

and the helicopter must be

Gansu International

Fellowship programme

Rolleston town centre upgrade –

the promenade

As part of the Rolleston town centre upgrade, a promenade is

proposed which will encourage walking and cycling.

A main promenade is proposed to run between the Tennyson

Street entrance and the Wordsworth Street extension. A detailed

design of the promenade as well as for the rest of the town centre

development, is now available for the public to view. For more

information and to have your say, go to selwyn.govt.nz/rtc-design.

Pedestrians will enjoy a leisurely walk through landscaped gardens,

comfortable seating areas, grassy ‘urban islands’, outdoor kids’

educational zones as well as a vegetable garden.

The promenade provides the transition between the town centre/

square and the reserve. This will be an attractive link for pedestrians

and cyclists as they travel in to both of these areas. The promenade

is intended to be used as a shared-space environment where

pedestrians, cyclists and service or emergency motor vehicles can

move at slow speed.

Some proposed key features of the promenade include flexible

spaces for sitting, playing music, enjoying a coffee or reading. It will

have variable width to encourage a wide range of activities. There is a

minimum width of 4m throughout, with additional paved zone adjacent

to the town square and Te Ara Ātea Library and Community Centre.

Selwyn District Council is offering an opportunity to spend a month in China travelling, learning

and meeting people from around the world.

Applications have opened for the Gansu Sister Cities Fellowship programme. Each year the

Gansu Provincial Government hosts delegates from their sister cities, including Selwyn and

Christchurch, with the aim of promoting mutual understanding and fellowship. Based in the city

of Lanzhou from 20 August to 20 September, delegates will have the opportunity to travel and to

study Chinese history, culture, political system, tourism, technology and economic development,

plus agriculture and sister city works.

Applicants must be between 22 and 50 years of age and live or work in Selwyn. The Gansu

Fellowship programme pays for international air fares, accommodation and local transport plus an

allowance. Delegates pay for their own food, travel insurance, medical expenses and internet.

To apply email Bernadette.Ryan@selwyn.govt.nz. Applications close on Friday 31 May 2019 at

9am. Interviews will be held on Tuesday 4 June.

Citizenship ceremony welcomes newcomers

A love story was at the heart of the journey for some of the country’s newest citizens.

A group of 23 people from eight different nationalities became New Zealand citizens at the citizenship

ceremony held at the Council last week. Many of the new citizens spoke about falling in love with New

Zealand and three new citizens spoke of joining partners or falling in love here.

Among them was Giovanni Tubo, who moved from the Philippines in 2012 to be closer to his now wife,

who moved here in 2007. The pair, who work at Christchurch Hospital, met while studying nursing

together in the Philippines and now live in Rolleston.

“We found New Zealand a really good place for welcoming other nationalities. We heard this

[Rolleston] was a great place to build and the community is really good and we love the place—it’s a

really good place here.”

It was also a special day for Brett and Anna-Jean Gravett, with the ceremony falling on Mr Gravett’s

birthday. “When I saw the day I couldn’t believe it,” he says.

Mayor Sam Broughton led the room in singing Happy Birthday as Mr Gravett came up to take the oath

of allegiance.

Mrs Gravett said the couple, from South Africa, fell in love with New Zealand on a holiday here. They

seized the chance to move when Mr Gravett was offered a job working on the earthquake rebuild and

have travelled every corner of the country apart from the Chatham Islands, she says.

For the first time each new citizen was given their own small New Zealand flag to mark the day.

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads this week

Repairs will be carried out on Dalethorpe Road, Waimakariri Gorge Road, Selwyn

Road and Springs Road until Friday 17 May. Traffic management will be in place

during this time.

Footpath construction will be carried out on Courtenay Road between Brooker

Place and School Lane until Friday 17 May. Footpath construction is continuing on

Edward Street from Millstream Drive to Southfield Drive, Tod Place and North Belt

from James Street to Kildare Terrace.

Road works are continuing on Goulds Road between Maltby Drive and East Maddisons Road until

Friday 17 May. Detours and traffic management will be in place during this time.

Footpath, kerb and channel work has been completed on Birchs Road and road sealing has been

completed on Robinsons Road.

Winter’s almost here – how

healthy is your home?

With much colder weather on the way, now is an important time to

plan how to keep your home dry and healthy over the winter months.

Ventilation is key to preventing moisture building up inside a home

during winter. During this time homes are often locked up all day

and night, trapping moisture from cooking, showers and from

occupants breathing.

Council Building manager Vanessa Mitchell says the best way to

ventilate your home is to open up all windows and doors for about

half an hour when you get home from work.

“Aim to have cross-ventilation by opening doors and windows on

the opposite sides of your home for maximum benefit. While it

may seem a bit cold while you do this, the benefits are huge – your

home will be drier and warmer and you will be surprised by how any

thermal gain stored throughout the day in concrete floors is not lost

by doing this,” she says.

As it gets colder, unwanted guests such as insects and rodents may

also be looking for somewhere warm to live.

Checking the perimeter of your house to ensure any potential

entry points are blocked is important, Mrs Mitchell says. “With

brick veneer cladding weep holes in brick work are required for

drainage of the cavity, so do not block these. If they appear to

be wide enough for a mouse to get in, wire mesh can be formed

and secured in the weep hole to prevent vermin entry, while still

allowing for ventilation and drainage.”

It’s also a good idea to check weep holes are not blocked and clear

out any dirt or debris.

Winter tips:

Did your plumbing pipes freeze last winter? Now is a good

time to add additional insulation around and over pipework,

particularly in your ceiling space, to ensure your water keeps

flowing this winter. Make sure new insulation has at least a

25mm gap between the top of the insulation and the underside

of the roofing, to prevent moisture issues from condensation on

the underside of the metal roofing.

Do you have a log burner in your home? There is still time

to get your chimney cleaned to ensure your burner operates

cleanly and efficiently during winter, and to prevent chimney

fires. Pellet fires, gas fires, boilers, and multi-fuel burners/fires

also need maintenance, so check with the manufacturer to

know the specific requirements.

Selwyn District Council has agreed to trial Lime Scooters in Rolleston once safety concerns and other

issues have been addressed.

The Council has agreed to a six month trial, but only once staff and Lime Scooters have worked through

issues around where the scooters will be able to travel and how fast, as well as public education, costs

and legal requirements under the Council’s bylaws.

The proposal by Lime is to introduce 200 scooters to the Rolleston town area. It would make Rolleston

the fifth place in New Zealand and the first rural town to allow the scooters.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the decision

fits well with the district’s forward thinking

attitude, while being realistic about the

concerns. “We’re an active community that

likes to have fun, to look to the future and

give things a go and trialing Lime scooters is

a part of that. I’m looking forward to taking

one out for a spin and seeing whether they’re

something that works to benefit Rolleston and

the district.”

Some of the attractions of the scooters, he

says, include ease of use, particularly for

people who don’t drive, sustainability and fun.

However, concerns were also raised about

people taking the scooters on roads with

higher speed limits and pedestrian safety on

narrow footpaths.

The Council agreed that Lime and Council

staff would work together to address these

concerns before the trial could go ahead.

Dodging the rough, bunkers and coffins

• By Jacob Page

WEDNESDAY’S at the nine-hole

Lincoln Golf Club sees players

dodge more than just bunkers

and the rough: They are dodging

coffins as well.

Each week, with the backdrop

of Lincoln Cemetery, at least 50

golfers ranging in age from 60 to

92 take part in the Wednesday’s

Whackers or as it is dubbed over

a drink on the 19th hole - Coffin

Dodgers Wednesday.

It is an 18-hole stableford

competition, with the best score

in each group often earning a

free ticket into the $2 meat raffle

drawn at the end of the day.

While friendship and banter

are the driving force behind

the initiative, make no mistake,

many are out there trying to

shoot under their age.

Bill Campbell has been a

regular Wednesday Whacker for

more years than he can remember.

“I’m a broken-down brick-layer,

you know? The body is rooted,

but I love the game,” he said.

Campbell, who has been a

member of the club since 1969,

said it was the banter after each

round which kept him coming

back.

“The chat is the guts of the

whole day and the highlight of

my whole week.

“If it’s a nice day, we sit there

and talk s**t and it’s wonderful.

“With Lincoln golf course

played around a cemetery, we

thought we often poke fun at

ourselves and say we’re all Coffin

Dodgers.”

Campbell describes himself as

“a baby in the group” at 77-yearsold.

“Dave Donald (father of the late

former Green Party leader Rod

Donald), is 91 and he plays every

week.

“Ed Henderson is 87 and he

comes out each week and he

shoots under his age almost every

time he plays.

“As I say to him, each year he

gets older, it’s getting easier for

him because he gets an extra

shot.

“I shot under my age for the

first time six weeks ago and that’s

where the competitive nature

begins and ends,” he said.

“People want to score low for

themselves.”

Life member Morrie Henderson,

81, is the designated barman

each Wednesday and said it has

grown from humble beginnings

in the late 80s to early 90s.

“We had the Selwyn veterans

who met on a Thursday once a

month and the thing was you

could only join when you turned

60 and you had to put your name

down at 55 to be eligible because

there was so many people playing,”

he said.

“So a few people started playing

on a Wednesday and what

was half a dozen has, over time

become 50 people.

Henderson said he had been

a member for 53 years and is a

proud Coffin Dodger.

“Above the bar, there’s a row of

photos with life members on it

and of course there’s only three of

us left now I think and I believe

that’s where the name Coffin

Dodgers took off from – there’s

no respect whatsoever,” he said.

“Back in my early days if you

were 60, you dressed old, you

looked old, you were old but

these days if you retired at 60

SPORT

PUTT: Norm Stokes, 80 and

around the cemetery.

you’re doing well.” Henderson

said it allowed people to stay active

and give wives a well-earned

break from their husbands.

“The important thing isn’t the

game, the important thing is that

you’re able to walk on the right

side of the turf so enjoy it while

you can.

“If I only play a round a week,

I’d rather play on a Wednesday,

than a club day on a Saturday

because it is less competitive.

“Still, if you ending winning

the raffle, there can be hell to

pay,” he said.

Six Ellesmere teams in Combined Country

• By Jacob Page

THERE WILL be six Ellesmere

teams playing in the Combined

Country rugby quarter-finals on

Saturday.

Lincoln, Springston, Waihora,

Prebbleton, Darfield and

Burnham-Dunsandel Irwell

will all be part of the play-offs

but the top two qualifiers,

Glenmark-Cheviot and

Southern loom as genuine title

contenders.

The final round-robin

weekend, went largely with

the form guide with Waihora

doing themselves a favour while

making Darfield’s play-off road

more challenging.

Waihora co-coach Joff

Mooar said with four teams

coming from his team’s pool A

competitors, it promised to be an

intriguing play-offs.

“That was a big win over

Darfield for us, the boys were up

for it since it was our club day.”

He said their quarter-final

away at Springston will be one

he and the team were looking

forward too.

“They have an excellent

forward pack, strong leadership

and their backs like to have a

run,” he said.

“Given that four of the eight

play-off teams came from our

pool, we feel very well prepared

for the game.”

Unbeaten top qualifiers

Glenmark-Cheviot eased past

Rolleston 53-0 and will face

the eighth seed BDI after they

earned a bonus point 45-15 win

over Ashley.

LINCOLN Combined have

against lowly Aoraki Combined,

The good news for Darfield is

Southern this season.

Lincoln beat Celtic 29-14 to

secure the third seed and a

Prebbleton whose late season

Flying start propels University to big win over Belfast

Jim Doyle reports on

Lincoln University’s

match against Belfast on

Saturday

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY

got back on track in the metro

premier rugby competition

with a 50-17 win over Belfast at

Lincoln on Saturday.

What a difference a start

makes. The Rams had Jesse

Houston across twice inside

the first 6min and led 38-3 at

half-time. They hit the 50-point

mark before the end of the third

quarter.

Belfast scored two converted

tries in the last quarter but that

was water off a duck’s back to the

Rams, unlike the previous week

against Sumner.

The visitors weren’t a bad side.

They had an outstanding No. 8

in Amenatave Tukana, whose

brother Lekima was almost as

good from lock, and a useful

No. 6 in Toafa Touli. Tevita

Eukaliti wasn’t half bad at centre

either.

But this time the Rams weren’t

about to be caught with their

pants down. They had both Ere

Enari (for 55min) and Brett

Cameron (for 65min) plus Sam

Gilbert, back from New Zealand

under-20 duties in Australia, for

20min.

Gilbert was not long on the

park when he raced across for

two tries in quick succession.

He had work to do for both but

brushed off the last defenders

with ease.

It was nice to see Rameka

CONTAINED: Richard Catherwood is tackled by Tyler Power.

PHOTOS: KAREN CASEY

Poihipi coming back to his

best. The second-five sliced

through off a slick Cameron pass

to score in the second quarter

and he made other sharp breaks

as well.

Kale Thatcher made a good

fist of the No. 8 duties including

some crunching tackles. He

was a bit unlucky to be penalised

twice for deliberate knock-ons

when he was putting big

pressure on Belfast, with no

cynical intent.

Antonio Shalfoon was back

to bolster the lineout and the

second row of the scrum, which

held up well. He made a fine

lineout take near the back to set

up a driving maul which led to

Nic Souchon’s try.

100 caps for Prebbleton footballer

• By Gordon Findlater

PREBBLETON’S Tom Stewards

accomplished the rare feat of

bringing up 100 games for St

Thomas of Canterbury College’s

first XI last week.

The occasion was made

even sweeter for the holding

midfielder who scored a

hat-trick in his side’s 8-0

victory over rivals St Bede’s

College in the Connetics premier

first XI secondary school

competition.

Following the game he was

presented a plaque and trophy to

mark the occasion by principal

Steve Hart.

“It was a pretty special

occasion . . . It was an extra

incentive to have a good game,

so I was happy to end up scoring

a hat-trick,” said Stewart.

The St Thomas’ captain

became just the third player to

bring up 100 caps for the first XI,

following in the footsteps

of Mike Killick and Andy

Steel.

Killick was on hand to witness

Stewart’s milestone, due to being

the referee for the match.

Stewart will become the most

capped player in the school’s

history if he can pass the 115

game tally currently held by

Steel – who is currently the

chairman of the school’s board

of trustees.

“He’s a very mature and aware

player, he does a lot of stuff to

work on his game in his own

time and builds up confidence

in the guys around him,” said St

Thomas’ coach Jacob Allen.

The biggest highlight during

Stewart’s 100-game career

came last year when St Thomas

defeated Burnside 2-1 in the

Connetics first XI final.

“It was amazing, we had the

whole school chanting our name

and when the final whistle went

they all ran onto the pitch, it was

a sea of blue,” Stewart said.

MILESTONE:

Tom Stewart has

become just the

third player in St

Thomas history to

play 100 games

for the first XI.

Stewart – who plays club

football for Selwyn United –

was also part of the St Thomas

futsal team which won the New

Zealand secondary schools futsal

championships in Wellington in

March.

SPORT

In year 8, he scored the

winning goal for his St Thomas

team at the Koru Games against

Rolleston School.

The same year he made his

first XI debut at just 12 against St

Kevin’s College from Oamaru –

a match he also scored in.

Last year he was part of the

New Zealand Secondary Schools

team which toured the United

States.

He hopes he may become

more familiar with the US in the

coming years with the goal of

earning a football scholarship to

play at a college next year.

Before then he hopes to

replicate a run like St Thomas

achieved at the 2017 national

secondary school tournament

where they finished fourth.

With potentially 20 to 25

games expected to be played this

year he stands a good chance

of becoming St Thomas’ most

capped player, if he can stay

fit.

St Thomas have won the

opening two rounds of

this year’s Connetics premier

first XI secondary school

competition. They face

Christchurch Boys’ High School

at English Park at 5.10pm today.

Three team relegation battle looms

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN A earned a crucial

bonus point after pushing last

year’s beaten finalists Broadfield

A in week two of the Selwyn

premier netball competition on

Saturday.

Broadfield eventually prevailed

50-45 but the youthful Lincoln A

may look back later and be grateful

for their bonus point which

they earned for losing by a five

goal margin.

With the netball season split

into three five-week rounds, the

first two rounds see the bottom

team demoted and replaced with

the top second division team.

The third round sees a champion

crowned.

The schedule means the top

teams play the first two rounds

looking to improve combinations

while the rest battle to keep their

premier status.

After two weeks there appears

to be a top three and bottom

three emerging. Broadfield A,

Douglas was quick but

ultimately unlucky at the

opening round of the FIA

Karting Academy Trophy

Series at Wackersdorf,

Germany.

The 13-year-old former

two-time New Zealand

champion qualified in

by another

competitor.

“It was

an unfortunate way to

said KartSport New

Tiffany Hamilton, who

travelled to Germany with

Douglas.

“Jacob had the pace

to move up in the dry

top three fastest times

in free practice but got

turned around by another

competitor as he overtook

them at turn four on lap

two of final. Obviously,

Jacob was disappointed,

because he was looking

forward to having the extra

track time to show his true

pace.”

The lack of track time,

rained, was an issue for a

effort to defeat Prebbleton A

54-37.

Greenpark A coach Zaylie Sullivan

said her team played with

freedom and it showed at both

ends of the court.

“I thought our attack end

started really strongly and then

the second half our defence really

came in to its own and we put

them under a lot of pressure,” she

said.

Southbridge A coach Sarah

Ormandy said her team struggled

to counter Greenpark A’s

height throughout the court and

got precious little turnover ball.

“They played a very good game

and we didn’t adjust to what they

were doing against us as well as I

would have liked,” she said.

Greenpark B player/coach

Mechelle Barltrop said her team

should have won by more than

17 goals against Prebbleton A but

they lost momentum in the middle

and attacking thirds of the

court at times.

”It wasn’t our most polished

performance,” she said.

”I thought we threw away far

too much ball and that contributed

to our issues.”

Farm access for

duck hunters a

privilege

Federated Farmers reminds duck

hunters heading out for the duck-shooting

season that access to farms is a privilege.

The ‘Opening Day’ of the duck-shooting

season on May 4 2019 was a big deal in

rural New Zealand, with 40,000 annual

participants across the country. Hunters

pay Fish and Game for a duck shooting

licence but access is usually reliant on the

goodwill of local farmers.

Many hunters find themselves beside a

wetland built and maintained on private

farmland. Many of these arrangements are

several generations old, established on a

handshake.

“Farmers and visiting hunters alike look

forward to the opening weekend of the

duck-shooting season,’’ says Federated

Farmers Environment spokesperson Chris

Allen.

“But access on to farms comes with

responsibilities for both hunter and

farmer. Farms are businesses, homes

and places of recreation, and we ask that

people recognise this when they head out

for a shot this weekend.’’

Health and safety around firearms,

water and vehicles remains the number

one consideration but there are other

things for hunters to think about as well.

Biosecurity is essential on farms,

and with serious new threats such

as Mycoplasma Bovis, hunters need

to ask landowners about any special

requirements, particularly when driving

between different properties. For sheep

farmers, sheep measles is a big concern,

and all dogs must be dosed for worms

at least 48 hours before going on to

farmland.

“The basics of rural etiquette such as

leaving gates as you find them, controlling

dogs and not disturbing stock remain the

same,” says Chris. “Remember that fewer

and fewer people come from a farming

back ground, and what was once rural

common sense may no longer be known

by all farm visitors,” says Chris.

Barking exhaust

defines cabriolet

I’M accelerating hard up

a quiet piece of country

road – first gear, second,

third and fourth, using the

paddle shifters to extract

maximum speed through

the gears.

I have the convertible

roof down, and my son’s

long hair is blowing freely

in the breeze, we are both

enjoying the sound of a

wailing V6 engine up front

and loud exhaust bark out

the rear as the gears shift.

The next thing I hear is

a siren-like sound and I

see flashing lights in my

rear view mirror. No, I

haven’t been caught by the

law for speeding, instead

I’ve activated an alarm

on a stationary car we

just passed, quite clearly

its motion sensors were

disturbed by the backfire

from the evaluation

car’s exhaust as the gears

changed.

The car I was driving

was Mercedes-Benz’s C43

AMG cabriolet, a car which

has definite sound and

robust performance. As

mentioned it has a 3-litre

V6 engine which has

healthy acceleration thanks

to the boost from twin

turbochargers.

Maximum power is

rated at a feisty 287kW

with a fabulous 520Nm

of torque, such are the

outputs there is a constantly

vibrant feel from beneath

the accelerator, it is strong

and wilful and, of course,

there are many drive modes

available at the push of a

button. You can dial in the

type of drive you would like

to experience – feisty or

frugal.

Each set-up is conclusive,

there is a definite structure

from within each mode,

and they can also be tailormade

to suit any driving

preference. I particularly like

the first sport setting, the

engine is not overly frenetic,

but it is a compromise

between the more gentle

comfort mode and the fullon

Sport plus setting.

With all of these options

there’s little denying

that the C43 has strong

performance potential.

Mercedes-Benz claims a

standstill to 100km/h time

of 4.8sec, and when the

engine is working hard it is

enjoying its work, while it

is raucous it’s not a strained

drive quickly.

sound, I simply love it,

especially the bark on up

and downshifts.

During my time in

the evaluation car I was

constantly blipping the

throttle just to hear the

engine, that being the case

it wouldn’t be fair to publish

my fuel usage figures.

• Price – Mercedes-

Benz C43 cabriolet,

$141,400

• Dimensions –

Length, 4686mm;

width, 1810mm;

height, 1409mm

• Configuration – V6,

four-wheel-drive,

2996cc, 287kW,

520Nm, nine-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 4.8sec

• Fuel usage –

10l/100km

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

However, Mercedes-Benz

claims a 10-litre per 100km

(28mpg) combined cycle

rating that I would suggest

is easily possible given

the fuel usage meter was

listing a 7l/100km (40mpg)

instantaneous figure sitting at

a steady 100km/h, the engine

turning over at just 1500rpm.

The C43 cabriolet is

very much a driver’s car, it

is biased towards sporty,

and it makes no excuse for

that. Alongside the engine

management protocols, the

driver can also manipulate

suspension alterations

spring and damper rates

performance.

Twisty, open roads

are not easy to come

by in Canterbury, but

I discovered some new

corners just west of

Darfield that I hadn’t

previously used. The C43

has a low centre of gravity,

and in sport suspension

mode it simply powers

through the corners flat

and controlled.

There is strong steering

feel thanks to beautiful

sport specification, 19in

Dunlop tyres, turn-in is

direct and accuracy never

threatened.

Of course, the C43

with 4Matic drives through

a nine-speed automatic

gearbox to all wheels,

and that promotes a safe,

decisive handling balance.

While there are two

rear seats, effectively the

C-Class cabriolet is just a

2+2, unless you are childsize

you aren’t going to be

comfortable in the rear.

While in that regard it is a

selfish car, those upfront

have wonderful comfort and

can benefit from the high

degree of specification and

the amazing way Mercedes-

Benz creates the ergonomics

that feel just so right.

I guess at $141,400 the

company would need to

get that right. In my

opinion, that is certainly

the case. It’s fair to say I’m

not a big convertible fan,

but the C43 won me over

with its build quality, level

of specification, along with

its substantial performance.

There’s no secret

that Mercedes-Benz

is re-engineering the

configuration of its sixcylinder

line-up, and as

time goes by I’m sure that

all of its six-potters will

eventually be an inline

configuration, my only

hope is that new straight

engines are as involving as

the C43 is today, and have

that amazing sound.

Gardening

Establish strawberry beds

ALTHOUGH THE

weather has cooled, there

are still a few tasks to be

done in the garden this

month. Here are some tips

to get you started.

Vege gardens – The

winter vege garden should

be well established by now

and most of your seedlings

should already be planted.

Continue to sow broad

beans and transplant seedlings

of cabbage, cauliflower,

broccoli and silverbeet

for a continuous supply

over winter. Sow green

manure crops such as lupin

and mustard in the parts

of the vege garden that will

be empty during the winter

months. This will add

nutrients into the soil and

protect beds over winter.

Strawberries – It’s

the traditional time of the

year for final preparation

and planting of strawberry

plants. Areas to be planted

should be mounded

80-100cm above existing

ground level. Incorporate

large amounts of compost

into the strawberry bed.

New plants or offsets from

last year’s plants should be

planted 15-20cm apart.

Fruit trees – Pip and

stone fruit will have shed

A happy healthy home

More than ever, we now require our

homes to be a sanctuary - a primate haven

where the cares and pressures of the world

do not intrude. The home should be an

enveloping, warm and creative environment

where family members of all ages feel

relaxed and safe.

The longer you live in your home, the

more likely you are to feel in sync with it.

As the seasons come and go you’ll have

got to know which rooms are sunny and

which ones need brightening.

You’ll have noted areas prone to damp.

You’ll have observed where different family

members like to spend their time and why.

You might have come to the conclusion

that major changes are required to make

your home as healthy as possible, or perhaps

you’ve concluded that a few simple tweaks

will do the trick. Either way, good planning

is essential, so take your time, write lots of

lists and do your research thoroughly.

MATERIALS

The ‘make-do-and-mend’ culture

that has grown during the recession

places emphasis on the satisfaction that

can be found in incorporating natural

materials with vintage items. Pieces of

driftwood, collections of shells, that lovely

moss-covered garden bench or a ‘cleverly’

revived piece of furniture all have their place

in the healthy home and its surroundings.

This trend steers away from plastics and

synthetic materials.

HEATING AND VENTILATION

A home needs to be cool in summer,

with plenty of natural ventilation, and

warm in winter. Traditional open fires are

being phased out and home owners are

discovering the joys of installing modern

wood burners, using gas for heating or

installing a heat pump. All these options are

healthy - technology has come a long way

and most choices will see you saving money

in the long run.

STORAGE

While a minimalist style might be fine for

single people or couples without kids, when

the patter of tiny feet comes along, good

storage is going to be vital at every stage of

a child’s life - be they babies or teens - they

come with clutter. The more you can contain

that clutter the better in terms of both your

mental health and general safety.

There are any number of options available,

from professionally designed cupboards

and wardrobes, to the simple lidded plastic

boxes you can buy at chain stores. While

some people claim they thrive in a messy

environment. I know from experience that a

lovely, orderly home is good for the soul.

COLOUR

Choosing the

right colours

for your home

can make a big

difference. Small,

dark rooms

can be opened

up and made

brighter simply

by choosing the

right paint. If

you can afford an

interior designer

or colour

consultant to

help, I do advise

it. Today’s

homes tend to

be more open

plan, so choose a palette of two or three

basic colours and use them throughout to

achieve cohesion and harmony.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Showhome on view

Opposite Rolleston Square stands a showhome

which will have you rethinking your ideas around

new home design.

With a presence in the residential building

market spanning 40 years, Orange Homes have an

undisputed reputation for delivering quality and their

Rolleston showhome is testament to this.

This single level 243sqm home has two living

areas, four bedrooms and two bathrooms, making it

ideal for families and those wanting a little space. Its

plaster finish augmented with designer schist stone,

cedar, and long run iron roofing blends well giving

the home a stylish look.

There is a feeling of spaciousness as one walks

into the home, with a bamboo wood divider wall

affording a sense of separation from the living room.

The entryway is intimately lit with hanging cabinetry

providing extra storage while offering the potential

for a spacious study nook, and with a centrally

ducted heating system the whole area is warm and

cosy.

A north facing lounge runs off the living area

providing a sumptuous place to entertain or enjoy

a quiet moment as the sun streams through the

window. The living room itself is a generous size

as well as ideal for media purposes. Its degree of

separation from the lounge and kitchen/dining space

allows for three distinct areas, where one can escape

to relax or work.

The home’s spacious kitchen is a cook’s dream with

ample bench and cabinetry, cooktop, tower faucet,

island bar, under bench dishwasher and oven, and

walk-in pantry. Practicality is to the fore with tiles

providing a splash back which runs the full length of

the bench top. Sliders lead from the dining area to a

patio and fully fenced rear garden where children can

play safely.

Attractive yet durable wood grain vinyl planking

runs through the entryway, kitchen and other wet

areas.

In the ensuite there is a cubicle shower, good sized

vanity and mirrored medicine cabinet, something

seldom seen in showhomes.

The home has generous off-street parking

while positioning of the rooms within the home

demonstrates how design can accommodate a site on

a busy road.

new home or simply gathering

ideas, you will want to add

Should you sell

your house in

winter?

Selling a property in winter may seem to go against received wisdom,

but there are plenty of reasons why it can be a good idea.

It’s hard to ignore powerful or compelling

reasons like a change in your work, financial

or family circumstances, or because the

timing seems right. In addition, there are

several other, more tangible upsides to

selling in winter.

Firstly, there are often fewer houses on

the market so there’s less competition. Your

property is less likely to be lost in a swarm

of listings and it will be easy to make it stand

out. People who are looking to buy at this

time of year are usually highly motivated

because they need a home sooner rather

than later. The upside of this is that you may

get fewer ‘tyre-kickers’ than in the warmer

months – and increased demand will often

result in higher prices.

If you’re selling your property with a

real estate agent, you need to mine their

experience. When you’re choosing an agent,

ask them how houses in your area sell over

the colder months. It’s in their interests

to make sure the sale of your property is

as advantageous as possible; if they think

you’ll be better off waiting a couple of

months, they should tell you. They should

also work with you to work out the best

times to hold open homes or viewings,

taking in account shorter sunlight hours.

You want your property to look attractive,

inviting and easy to look after – and there

are plenty of practical steps you can take

to make it seem an attractive proposition

on a cold winter’s day. Now’s the time to

fix any leaks, cracked windows or sticking

doors or broken drains. All the usual rules

for preparing a home for sale will apply -

your buzzwords should be decluttering and

deep-cleaning. If it has good insulation

and an efficient heating system, make sure

these factors are included in any marketing.

Ensure the house is warm and dry during

any viewings.

Don’t forget that people will want to

look around the outdoor areas too -

sweep or waterblast paths, mulch garden

beds and clear gutters. If your garden is

picture-perfect in summer and spring,

consider making some photos available so

prospective buyers can see what they’ve got

to look forward to. A few colourful plants in

pots will also help brighten outdoor spaces

and a new letterbox or freshly painted front

fence or gate will do wonders for your

property’s street appeal.

Prepare well and there’s no reason why

you can’t successfully sell your property

before the weather warms up. Sell now and

you’ll hopefully have lots of properties to

choose from when you start scanning the

market in spring.
