DANGER: Motorists caught using cellphones while driving will be issued with an $80 fine and 20 demerit points. ​

Pets, pies and cellphones –

police look to crack down

• By Anan Zaki

IF YOU EAT, drink or use

your phone behind the wheel,

chances are you’ll see flashing

lights.

For the remainder of the

year, police in the district will

regularly target drivers who are

not paying full attention to the

road.

The aim of the crackdown is

to reduce the number of crashes

caused by mobile phone use

and other distractions, Sergeant

Alex Pickover said.

“There have been tickets

issued for using a cellphone

while driving, we’ve been doing

checkpoints around the Selwyn

District in relation to cellphone

Plan to

netball

courts

before

weekend

• By Jacob Page

ASSURANCES are being

made that netball courts in

the district will be back in

action this Saturday after safety

concerns forced all games to be

abandoned at the

weekend.

All courts were

ruled out because

of the condition of

surfaces which had

seen a number of

players slip during Douglas

matches on May 11.

Marshall

The decision affected more

than 1900 players.

The district council’s

property and commercial

manager, Douglas Marshall,

said cold conditions had

impacted the standard of the

courts’ surfaces.

“Last Saturday’s cold and

damp weather highlighted the

silt and algae build-up on the

courts,” he said.

THE POPULARITY of two

community run events in

Hororata is forcing a rethink

about how often they can be run.

The Hororata Night Glow and

the Hororata Highland Games

are both run every year by volunteers

from the community.

Hororata Community Trust

executive officer Cindy Driscoll

said Saturday’s Night Glow attracted

about 14,000 people and

November’s Highland Games

drew a crowd of about 10,000.

“We’re not sure if we’re doing

it [Night Glow] next year or if

we will go biennial. We need to

review that, look at our capacity

Driscoll said.

The latest statistics breakdown

The games also required a huge

commitment to run every year,

Mrs Driscoll said.

“So it’s about what we can do

as a community, we don’t want to

burn people out. It’s not all about

making money,” she said.

A decision on the future of the

two events would be announced

at the end of the year, Mrs

Driscoll said.

But that will not affect this

year’s Highland Games, which is

scheduled for November 9.

Meanwhile, the community

trust was “blown away” by Saturday’s

Night Glow.

Said trust chairman Richard

everyone, we believe we have

done this.”

“Naturally we were

disappointed that we were

the Night Glow due to adverse

wind conditions, however, the

balloonists put on a spectacular

and unique burner glow, which

when combined with the

fireworks and other activities

proved to be a successful

evening’s entertainment,” Mr

Lang said.

The proceeds from the Night

Glow will go towards building a

new community centre.

The trust aimed to raise

between $30,000 and $40,000 for

the centre. The proceeds from

the Night Glow are yet to be

confirmed.

‘Most insane place’ to cross a road

• By Anan Zaki

AN ARTIST has found a creative

way to criticise a designated

crossing point being built on a

busy Lincoln road.

Down by the Liffey Gallery

administrator Mike Glover is

puzzled at the

district council’s

decision to install

a footpath which

encourages

people to cross

James St near

the intersection

with Edward and

Gerald Sts.

“Cars sweep around that

corner and it’s quite an

obstructed view because of trees.

It’s just the most insane place to

put a crossing.”

To express his concern, he

placed a fake sign: “This road

crossing is proudly sponsored by:

Funerals Canterbury Union of

Professionals (FCUP), We Make

Death Easy!!”

Mr Glover said sometimes

people have to “stir the pot” to

send a message.

“It’s unfathomable. We were

involved with the toy library

years ago when my daughter was

little and we used to put a plastic

fence right along the bit where

they’ve got the crossing because

it was so dangerous.”

He believes traffic lights would

be a better option.

District council transportation

team leader Mark Chamberlain

said the kerb is being lowered to

allow easier pedestrian access to

cross the road.

“The kerb cut

down has been put

at this point, as it is

already a place where

pedestrians cross that

intersection and it is

placed to allow the

maximum visibility

of Gerald St and

James St,” he said.

An upgrade to the

Gerald, Edward and

James Sts intersection

is proposed in the Lincoln Town

Centre Plan, Mr Chamberlain

said.

The plan says in five or more

years, traffic signals would be

installed at the intersection if

needed. The crossing point and

footpath are due to be completed

by Friday.

Puppy taken in Burnham house burglary

• By Anan Zaki

BURGLARS HAVE struck

a Burnham house, stealing a

number of belongings and a

13-week-old puppy.

The burglary took place at Two

Chain Rd on May 9.

Little Spot, a bichon shih tzu

cross, was taken from Leigh

Mobbs-Brown’s house of two

years, along with camping

equipment, jewellery, watches,

planters, gardening tools and a

drill. Mr Mobbs-Brown is not a

breeder, but had sold the puppy

to a couple from Invercargill for

$900.

“I come home from lunch

every day and got home around

12.30pm. I discovered

the dog was missing

first. They had gone

through every cupboard

and wardrobe. Three

little dogs came running

towards me, there should

have been four,” he said.

Police were called and

collected fingerprints, Mr

Leigh

Mobbs-

Brown

Mobbs-Brown said.

He is waiting to hear back

about the fingerprint results.

The police were not

available for comment.

Mr Mobbs-Brown said he

worries about Little Spot’s

health.

“It stresses me out. I always

thought I would give him a

loving caring home, I picked the

family that he was going to,” he

said.

“I don’t care about the

belongings, I can replace them,”

he said. “This is a life, it’s a

family member and I didn’t

bring them up to be good

puppies for someone to take like

that,” Mr Mobbs-Brown said.

Road works signs and confusion

Council admits

‘room for

improvement’

• By Anan Zaki

FOR THE past few years, Kim

Eccleston has been complaining

to the district council about

the incorrect use of road works

signs.

The Lincoln resident of 13

years said far too

often road works

in the district

are riddled with

mistakes, such as

the wrong speed

limit signs.

Kim

Eccleston

Last week a road

works site near

Rolleston had a

100km/h sign in an 80km/h

zone on Weedons Rd.

The sign was kept up for three

days before being changed to the

correct 80km/h on Thursday.

Another road works site

on Old West Coast Rd near

Waddington had two different

speed sign facing the same

direction. One sign said

50km/h while the other sign

was 30km/h.

“Imagine someone who’s

unfamiliar with a road,” Dr

Eccleston said.

He said one of the “worst”

examples he had come across

was at Dynes Rd, Rolleston, last

year.

“There was a 30km/h

temporary [speed] zone and

inside the temporary zone, they

left the normal speed limit signs

uncovered,” Dr Eccleston said.

He believes the district council

is not doing its job of regularly

monitoring road works sites.

“The people who are doing

traffic management, that is their

job. They’re not asked to do

anything else. When they fail

all the time, what does that say

about them?”

“It’s just like going to a dentist

who doesn’t know how to pull

out a tooth,” he said.

District council transportation

team leader Mark Chamberlain

said, on average, 68 traffic

management plans are submitted

for the district each month.

Accidents happen every day.

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

surrounding rural communities

and the helicopter must be

equipped and ready to respond

24/7 365 days a year. It’s our rural

communities like you who truly

understand the value of the rescue

helicopter,” says Rick Knight, Crew

Chief of the Westpac Rescue

Helicopter.

is asking for your support. “Please

help this appeal so we can all

go on living life to the full, it’s

about peace of mind. If everyone

can contribute, we can support

each other, our family and our

friends,” says Christine Prince,

such wonderful supporters

Getting away for Mother’s Day

JUST IN CASE you didn’t read last

week’s column, we all got away for

a short family vacation/Mother’s

Day escape to Greymouth at the

end of last week.

Vittoria also only naps once a

day now. It’s a tough transition

for me. Whatever, don’t judge me

parents of older kids.

Pro-tip; a long car ride across

the Southern Alps can give the

illusion of a much longer nap

time. As long as they can’t ask:

“Are we there yet?”

We managed to get away for

our trip a mere 40min after our

scheduled departure time.

Vittoria went straight

into her nap as we left the city,

but with a couple of stops

through the mountains

(including the wonderful Otira

Stagecoach Hotel) the total trip

took longer than it would have on

the bus.

I actually enjoyed that though, it

felt more like an old-school Kiwi

whānau getaway. We even stayed

in a holiday park and had a pub

meal on the first night.

Love it.

We managed to get in a

fair amount of sightseeing

and relaxation in a couple of

days, with Friday’s perfect

weather making a great

accompaniment to the views at

Punakaiki.

I even managed to sneak in a

tour at the Monteith’s Brewery.

VITTORIA

& Matt

Just me though, can you imagine

taking a toddler to a brewery?

For Vittoria, the best part

was quite probably the

playground at the holiday

park. Unfortunately, it started

pouring down with rain not long

after we arrived so she only got to

play on it for like five minutes on

day one.

You should have seen how

heartbroken she was when I took

her back to the room.

There were “everyone-thinks-

I’m-a-bad-parent” level crying

and screaming.

The next day, her reaction

when she saw that it was still there

and able to be played on

was awesome. She actually said

“wow.”

She’s not even talking yet but

the playground managed to coax

out what could be considered an

actual recognisable word.

Damn, that’s a good

playground.

To finish off our trip we took

even longer to come home on

Saturday, adding in more stops.

I think this could become a

Mother’s Day tradition.

awareness of biodiversity, the variety of

RECENTLY I found an

interesting browny moth with

orange wing tips and distinctive

dots known as ruddy streak or

Tachystola acroxantha.

This moth with a wingspan of

14mm originates from Australia,

but is found throughout New

Zealand and southern England

and Wales.

It was first recorded in New

Zealand in 1886 and is often

found in houses where its larvae

may feed on detritus and outside

on leaf litter.

Larvae reach 11-14mm in

length, are translucent grey to

cream in colour with the gut

showing as a dark dorsal line,

and have a brown head and

mandibles.

Larvae feed on live and dead

leaf material, often between

leaves in a dwelling made with

webbing.

They then pupate within

this tube of webbing, which is

encrusted on the outside with

their dry frass (poo).

Ruddy streak are thought to

go through several generations

in the United Kingdom.

ruddy streak has

Our People

SELWYN TIMES

Annalisa Pope

Vet’s passion for animals - wings,

World Veterinary Day was

celebrated last month, so

Sophie Cornish caught up

with SPCA Christchurch

centre head vet Annalisa

Pope, of Rolleston, who

has been a practising vet

for 12 years

When did you first decide you

wanted to be a vet and why?

I was about 13-years-old

when I decided I wanted to be

a vet. Initially I wanted to be a

paediatrician, a children’s doctor,

but I decided I couldn’t really

cope with some of the things they

had to deal with. Obviously, I had

always liked animals, so I figured

that was the next best bet.

What are the most

challenging things about being

a vet?

There are multiple things

that are challenging. I guess my

particular role at SPCA is a bit

different to normal vet practice

where you have the challenges

of the animals and the clients.

The clients are difficult at times

because the animals are their

babies, they will do anything and

everything for them.

But at the SPCA, we don’t have

those clients to deal with per se,

we have these animals who don’t

have an owner.

But then we do have some

clients who are very difficult

because they have to go through

the inspectorate and they are

not necessarily the easiest to

deal with. I think either way in

any vet practice the client is one

of the difficulties, but they are

also one of the most rewarding

components of vet practice.

Clients keep you doing what you

do.

It’s the same thing

with the animals, some can

be really aggressive, but if you

spend that time with them and

turn that corner with them,

the reward that comes out is

amazing. Everything that is

a positive is also potentially a

negative.

SURGERY: SPCA Christchurch centre head vet Annalisa Pope has had many challenging

moments over her 12-year career.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

You work with some

incredible diagnostic tools to

help with your job – tell me

about these?

It has evolved insanely, it’s

incredible. At the SPCA we have

limited access to diagnostics.

One of the old clinics I used to

work at had a CT machine, which

was pretty rare, there are only

two in Christchurch. They can

X-ray for soft tissue. Obviously

when we deal with X-rays, we

are looking at bones and then

with an ultrasound you are looking

at real time soft tissue. CT

machines actually go full blown

into breaking things down, like a

3D model. Then there are MRIs.

For those, we actually have to

use human machines. Obviously

we have to block out a time with

places that will let us take an

animal in. All these things are

very expensive. For a CT, you are

spending about $1000 and an

MRI is about $4000. Ultrasounds

are probably one of our key

things because they can help us

diagnose so many things internally,

but then again, X-rays are

probably the most used thing in

veterinary. I do think things are

changing a bit these days in that

they are still quite limited. You

still can’t get all the picture you

need, so obviously a combination

of all these diagnostics is the best

way to work it, but we can’t all

afford that. An ultrasound at a

practice would cost about $400

and for x-rays, you often have to

sedate the animal, so that adds

about another $200 cost. People

do have insurance these days

and are much more willing to do

these things, which is amazing.

Obviously at the SPCA we are

pretty limited in how we proceed

with financial things.

Any funny moments as a vet?

I remember there was one

time with a turtle in Ashburton.

This person turned up for the

consult without the turtle, they

forgot it. I called him into the

consult and asked if he had it

and he had to go back home and

get it. Sometimes clients take

explanations literally, for example

when I describe a bone on an

x-ray as “moth-eaten” the owner

sometimes asks “how did the

moths get in there?” Most of the

funny stories in my career tend to

involve some form of bodily fluid

– pus, blood, poo, pee, anal gland

material, reproductive excretions –

and either getting them on myself

or a poor nurse who is unfortunate

enough to be helping me at the

time.

beaks, claws, paws and all

Have you had any injuries

from your work?

Yes, nothing worse than a cat

bite. But anyone who has had a

cat bite, like one through a finger,

will know that it is not as pathetic

as it sounds. It is a horrific injury.

It leaves disgusting bacteria

under your skin, which leads to

a horrible infection, throbbing

in the middle of the night, it is

awful. I have not been mauled

by a dog yet, I’m sure that will

happen one day. I know many

vets who have and you can’t help

but become really cautious and

get shy about going near them

again. I find birds to be one of

the most aggressive. Their beak

hooks on to your finger and

doesn’t let go and it becomes very

difficult. Big birds in particular,

big parrots can be quite nasty. I

find cats the easiest because I can

control them the best.

What is the most unusual

surgery or procedure you have

had to do?

This is a hard one, because

things like fixing a turtles shell

or repairing a turtle’s shell is

probably one of the more unusual

things for me, but for other vets,

it is not unusual. There are people

that do it all the time. Turtles

can break their shells on lots of

things in their environments,

they have parts snap off. If it is

exposing their inner bits then

it can be a bit dangerous. You

literally have to glue it back

together, it’s quite neat. You can

make fake shells too. I have done

so many surgeries people might

find odd, but I don’t really find

them that odd anymore. There

was a dog that had all her girly

bits hanging out and I had to

surgically pop that back in and

stitch it in place, which was a

bit odd. I had a kitten that had

a concave chest. The condition

causes other issues and they can’t

necessarily live like that. Often

they need to be put to sleep as the

cost of the surgery is too much.

But the one that ended up here,

it was a decision of either putting

her to sleep or trying the surgery.

So she had a wee cast made out

100%

CAPITAL gAIN

TO THE RESIDENT

of a dog’s leg cast and we had to

go through sternum, while also

trying to avoid the lungs, heart

and blood vessels.

What sort of study did you

do to become a vet and tell me a

little about your career so far?

I went to Massey University

in Palmerston North. I am

originally from Christchurch. I

did a different degree first and

then did vet school. I spent eight

years at uni. In that time period

I met my now husband, who

lived in Christchurch, and we

had a long distance relationship.

That kind of dictated when I

finished vet school where I was

going to live. So I moved back

to Christchurch and got a job in

Ashburton and commuted there

daily. Then the clinic I worked

for actually opened a clinic in

Christchurch the following year,

so I worked for them and went to

another clinic for eight years and

another one for a couple of

years, before coming to the

SPCA.

Tell me about your family?

I have my husband Jeremy

and two kids, an eight-year-old

daughter Lilly and a six-year-old

son, Stan. We have two dogs

and four cats. I am officially a

hoarder. We used to have one

dog and three cats, but we had

to put one to sleep and took on

two others and got a dog. One of

Teen baseballer

pitches for spot

in national team

• By Jacob Page

MULTI-TALENTED Selwyn

baseballer Te Ahu Wall is

starting to turn heads at a

national level.

The 16-yearold,

who can

pitch, hit and

play in the outfield,

was nominated

for New

Zealand Baseball

under-19 player

of the year at its Te Ahu Wall

annual awards.

While he did not take out

the accolade, the Canterbury

age-group representative hopes

it may lead to him being part of

more national teams.

Te Ahu, who lives in Rolleston,

said his nomination came as a

shock. “I was surprised to be

up for the award but it was an

honour,”

Te Ahu made the Canterbury

under-19 team and won the

Canterbury senior baseball

competition with Selwyn.

Te Ahu said he prefers to play

centre field. He believes his

hitting has also improved over

the past year.

“I’ve been getting more

contact and hitting the ball

harder. I like getting a pitch I

can hit as soon as I see it,” he

said.

“My throwing from the

outfield has improved and

become more accurate.”

He said winning the

Canterbury title with Selwyn

was a highlight.

Te Ahu, who was 13 when

he started playing baseball

with his friends, said he also

plays softball when he can and

enjoys both games over the

summer.

“The aim for me is to be part

of a national team,” he said.

Te Ahu said he watches a lot

of United States’ Major League

Baseball and likes watching

Boston Red Sox outfielder

Mookie Betts.

Lincoln University’s

LINCOLN University piled on

50 points again in the metro

premier rugby championship –

this time against Linwood which

replied with 25 points of their

own on Saturday at Linfield.

The Rams had their work cut

out against a rugged Linwood

side but had the guts to soak up

a lot of pressure and finish the

game emphatically. There was a

compelling moment 5min from

the end when the Rams shoved

the big Linwood scrum right

off their own ball and substitute

wing Fletcher Morgan scored in

the left corner.

Then, almost at the death,

Sam Gilbert went across for

his second try of the match.

Brett Cameron capped a superb

goal-kicking display by landing

another conversion from the

sideline.

Replacement No 8 Liam Allen

had earlier finished off a siege

LINCOLN COMBINED will spend

the next week licking their wounds

after a 18-15 defeat to lowly Roncalli

Combined in Timaru on Saturday.

Roncalli Combined have

won just three games in the UC

Championship over the past three

years and conceded an average of

60 points in each of their first two

matches this season.

Lincoln Combined had a 10-6

lead at half-time and even added a

try after the break but were unable

to prevent the shock defeat.

Coach Tom Hooper praised

Roncalli Combined’s disruptive,

scrambling defence and lamented

his own team’s lack of finishing.

“Roncalli defended really well

and they disrupted our ball,

especially in the midfield,” he said.

“We got enough ball and used

it relatively well. We just couldn’t

finish. The passes that you would

normally expect to stick just didn’t

for us on the weekend. On another

day, we score three or four more

tries with the opportunities we

created and it’s a different story,” he

said.

Hooper said the side’s decisionmaking

and option-taking was an

issue but their effort was good and

he didn’t believe complacency was

an issue.

Lincoln Combined will now shift

their focus to high-flying Christ’s

College on Saturday.

“We have to try to put this behind

us and focus on what will be a

massive game against Christ’s,”

dummied and accelerated all the

way to the line.

Ere Enari’s crisp passing

was a boon for the Rams, but

he did not overshadow his

counterpart, Liam McCormack.

The Linwood halfback was as

good with his delivery and he

scored a sharp try from the base

of an advancing scrum to keep

Linwood in touch approaching

half-time. He made other breaks

as well.

Other Linwood players to

impress were man mountain

SPORT

Hooper said. “We have to make it

clear at training this week that this

was week three and we have a full

season ahead of us.”

Hooper said the loss did not take

away from his team’s impressive

round two win over Shirley Boys’

High.

“We had work-ons from that

game and we certainly have some

from the Roncalli game,” he said.

“We just have to make sure the

boys are in a good space mentally

and prepared for this Saturday.”

LINCOLN AND Springston are

the last two Ellesmere sides left

in the combined country rugby

competition after a thrilling

week of quarter-finals.

Both teams will hit the road

on Saturday in an effort to

make the final, with Springston

travelling to Omihi to take on

Glenmark-Cheviot and Lincoln

making their way to Hinds to

face Southern.

The competition will have a

new champion after last season’s

winners Waihora were beaten by

Springston 18-7, thanks largely to

Springston making the most of

two try-scoring chances.

However, a Brad Mavor

penalty late in the second half

lifted Lincoln to an 18-17 win

over Prebbleton at the Prebbleton

Oval.

Lincoln co-coach Kris

Partridge said he felt like his

team had won the war against

Prebbleton after reversing the

result of a round-robin game

played during the Prebbleton

centenary celebrations.

“I was really happy with how

we played and to win a close one

like that is a good sign.”

Partridge said his team’s scrum

and lineout laid a good platform

initially, and he was very pleased

with the heart shown by his

players. “We learnt things from

the loss to them at Prebbleton

and for the most part we were

happy,” he said.

“I don’t know much about

Southern but I might talk to

(Darfield coach) Merv and try to

get some intel on them.”

Springston coach Anton

Sutherland said his team are

eager to turn around their onepoint

loss to Glenmark-Cheviot a

fortnight ago.

“We lost to them in the 83rdminute

last time and I believe

100 per cent that we can win

this.”

He said beating Waihora gave

them a lot of confidence.

“They re a champion side

and we knew they’d come out

and try to bully us off the ball

and we handled it and took our

chances,” he said.

Glenmark-Cheviot outlasted

Burnham-Dunsandel-Irwell

52-13. BDI led 10-0 but could not

maintain it and were blown off

the park in the second half.

Southern had a tough time

against Darfield but eventually

prevailed 34-25.

Selwyn Times

The Council’s Selwyn Natural Environment Fund (SNEF) which encourages the protection and

restoration of native biodiversity on private land, is open for applications.

The SNEF assists landowners with advice and funding that supports the continued protection,

management and restoration of natural environments.

Biodiversity coordinator Andy Spanton says many farms in Selwyn have patches of vegetation

that contain rare, significant or threatened native species.

“The fund’s first priority is to protect sites that have been identified by an ecological assessment as

significant or are under covenant, particularly where they face threats such as from weeds or grazing.

“The fund’s second priority is to help increase, restore, enhance and protect sites that would

benefit from native biodiversity enhancement and protection,” Andy says.

A growing number of landowners in the district are protecting and restoring areas of native

vegetation on private land including Tai Tapu landowner Scott Amos. Mr Amos received $4,440

from the SNEF in the 2017/18 year to carry out native planting on a hill block. He has completed

the first year of a five-year planting plan, with a second area earmarked for planting later this year.

Regenerating the area with native plants and protecting the site for future generations is what

drives Mr Amos’ biodiversity efforts.

“There are so many benefits as a result of doing this work such as increased bird life, insects and

lizards, erosion control and increased biodiversity – we are noticing the benefits of this already,”

Mr Amos says.

“Andy has been giving us great help and we would also like to mention how amazing Te Ara

Kakariki Greenway Canterbury Trust has been with developing a planting plan and providing

volunteers to assist with the planting.”

For more information on the SNEF, go to selwyn.govt.nz/snef

On the roads this week

Sealing work will continue on Dalethorpe Road and Waimakariri Gorge Road until Friday

24 May. Traffic management will be in place at this time. Footpath construction will be

taking place on Hansendene Drive from Kilkenny Street to Foxford Drive, on Liffey Place

from North Belt and on South Belt from West Belt to Kildare Terrace until Friday 24 May.

Parking options in town centre

As part of the Rolleston town centre upgrade, a number of loading

and car park areas are proposed.

The car parks have been deliberately located around the edge

of the town centre to encourage visitors to move around on foot.

Accessible parking is proposed in multiple locations across the

town centre to minimise travel distances for physically impaired

drivers. Detailed designs of the proposed town centre development

are available for the public to view. For more information and to

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

Car parks

There is a main car park south of the development which will

provide the majority of parking for the town centre.

Car park two is located off Tennyson Street to the rear of the

upcoming shops. This will provide 44 car parks. Car park three

is located on the south of the site, just off Tennyson Street. It will

provide 130 to 140 parking spaces with the final number being

dependent upon the number of accessible parks and parent parks

that are provided.

On-street, right angled parking bays are proposed in all areas. The

bays are designed to be 2.6m wide and 5.0m deep, in accordance

with District Plan standard.

Bus stops

There is a bus stop on Tennyson Street, which will be directly across

from the new Te Ara Ātea Library and Community Centre. The

indented bus bays and loading bays are 2.5m wide with lengths of

13.5m and 12m respectively. The loading bays will service the retail

and commercial operators.

Movie Nights back for winter

The Council is excited to bring back Selwyn Movie Nights, starting with

a great dragon tale to add some warmth to those winter evenings.

Spend your Friday night (24 May) relaxing with friends and family at

Rolleston College and discover the ‘Hidden World’ with Toothless

the dragon. Bring your own blanket, bean bag, or cushion. There

will also be snack bar with snacks available for purchase, or you

can bring your own from home (no hot food please) – please use

rubbish bins provided.

Tickets:

$5 per person,

Small group pass (3 people) $10,

Large group pass (4–6 people) $15.

Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

Bookings are essential. To confirm a seat buy your tickets online

today at www.eventbrite.co.nz or visit the Council website.

Doors open at 6.30pm. Use carpark and entrance off Broadlands Drive.

Waste management in Selwyn

have your say

Public consultation has begun on a proposed plan which aims to

efficiently manage solid waste in Selwyn for the next six years.

The proposed Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2019 sets

out key actions that will address growing waste volumes, promote

greater uptake of the kerbside organics service in areas where

it’s available, establish a reuse shop and salvage yard, increase

education on waste reduction and improve access to services.

The proposed plan will explore emerging alternative waste

technologies and initiatives, promote ownership of the waste that

everyone generates and seek more community engagement.

Submissions close at 5pm on Friday 7 June, 2019. For more

information and to have your say, go to selwyn.govt.nz/wasteplan.

The Council is consulting on changes to its General Bylaw 2009, to enhance its clarity and certainty.

The General Bylaw is an administrative bylaw. It contains provisions which are common to all Council

bylaws such as conditions relating to the granting of licences. We want residents’ feedback on the draft

review bylaw and the proposal to reference the General Bylaw in all other bylaws. Public submissions

close at 5pm on Friday 28 June, 2019.

The purpose of a general bylaw is to contain provisions that do not need to be repeated in all other

bylaws. This prevents the unnecessary duplication of provisions which are common to all bylaws,

promoting consistency between the bylaws and making them more succinct.

For more information and to make a submission, go to selwyn.govt.nz/generalbylawreview.

Do you have heritage items to protect?

The Heritage Fund 2019 will be open for applications next month.

Applications will be accepted from Wednesday 5 June and close on Wednesday 17 July 2019.

The fund aims to encourage and assist property owners with work required to maintain and enhance

heritage buildings in the district, as well as work required on protected trees. It is open to residents

and ratepayers of the Selwyn district and priority is given to buildings, trees and items that are listed as

‘heritage’ under the Selwyn District Plan.

For more information and to download and application form, go to selwyn.govt.nz/heritagefund2019, or

contact us at heritagefund@selwyn.govt.nz.

Late applications will not be accepted.

Look local for

electrical needs

Locally owned and operated and

based in Rolleston, Juice Electrical has

been servicing the Selwyn district for

14 years with Greg Horton and his team

of four qualified master electricians

dedicated to the local community –

and there is no service vehicle charge

for Rolleston.

Juice Electrical can help with all your electrical needs

providing a professional and timely service whether

it is residential, commercial or industrial, indoors or

outdoors.

“We pride ourselves on going the extra mile

particularly with repair and renovation work and we’re

very strong on maintenance,” says Greg.

“We advise anyone needing electrical work to always

use a Master Electrician so they can provide continuity

of service and, if there are any problems, they can sort

them out.”

Even though the warm weather is far away it is a

good time to be thinking about how your outdoor areas

could be enhanced and accentuated with strategically

placed outdoor lighting – and it is nice to look at from

inside during the evening.

Greg suggests LED (light emitting diode) lighting as

it is a lot easier and less expensive to install because

there is no need to dig trenches for wiring. He also

recommends installing sensors so the lights come on

automatically.

Juice Electrical knows a lot about the range of LED

outdoor lighting including up-lighting, deck lighting

and floodlights as well as security lighting and can

advise on the best type and where they should be

placed.

“We discuss the customer’s ideas with them, show

them photos of other gardens with attractive outdoor

lighting and make suggestions on how they can make

the most of their outdoor area with a range of LED

lighting options,” says Greg.

In fact LED lights are fast becoming the preferred

option for indoor lighting as well.

“The technology has taken off and is replacing halogen

and incandescent bulbs for the home. Low voltage LED

technology has advanced from being initially used

in calculators and then torches to being suitable for

lighting anywhere

in the home

and we highly

recommend

them.”

Look out for

the brightly

coloured Juice

Electrical vans as

they work hard

to look after the

Selwyn district’s

electrical needs.

team at 379 6644.

garden centre

If picking fruit from your own trees

sounds like you, it is the perfect time to

pre-order your fruit trees from the team at

the Southern Woods Garden Centre. They

have over 100 different deciduous varieties

including apples, pears, plums and other

The garden centre is located half way

specifically designed with the customer

in mind making it easy to find hedging,

natives, deciduous trees, bushes, grasses,

spots of colour or ground cover.

The Southern Woods team is on hand to

help, happy to provide great advice based

on their many years in the business and

knowledge of which plants would suit your

property’s location, soil type and aspect the

best.

If you are unsure exactly what you are

looking for a landscape architect and

designer are also on-site to make your

selection even easier.

Southern Woods can also provide on-site

consultations and design landscape plans

for new sections and light commercial

developments. Another option is to take in

your plans and they can help with planting

inspiration directly in their plant centre.

Along with the plants, there is also

a selection of premium tools, planting

accessories and disease control products.

“Our tools are top quality and come from

Japan and Germany so they will last a long

time,” says Rico.

Next time you are heading between

Templeton and Rolleston stop at the

Southern Woods garden centre for some

inspiration for your garden. There is

plenty of free parking. You can also

call them on 0800 800 352 or visit their

Add space to your home

with a modern conservatory

Most people when they think of a

conservatory have the image of an oldschool

hot house. But that’s not how they

are these days.

Locally owned Christchurch company

UDR has an extensive collection of customdesigned

conservatories and windbreaks.

Incorporating products like double glazing

and Therma-panel roofing systems, these

conservatories or windbreaks can often be

better insulated and more comfortable all

year round than clients’ existing homes.

UDR offers a complete design and

build package and the entire service is

no obligation. If a consent is needed they

can organise that but in some cases UDR

can add the extra space without council

consent.

The actual build time for one of UDR’s

conservatories or windbreaks is normally

two to three days, with little or no mess

and, at the end of it, you are left with a

bigger home for a lot less cost than adding

an extension to your home, with the job

being completed in a lot less time.

UDR has worked on projects from

$10,000 to $150,000 so there is no job too

big or too small. The company receives

over 60 per cent of its business from repeat

or referred customers, which shows its

commitment to customer service.

Owner and manager Kelly Tyson has

grown up in Christchurch and it was

the issue of not having many still days in

summer that prompted the company to

launch into the market of conservatories

and windbreaks. UDR was already a

market leader in replacing aluminium

windows and doors in people’s homes and

Kelly wanted homeowners to add not just a

functional room but also a beautiful space

they could be proud of and, importantly,

feel like they are outside while escaping the

elements.

So if you feel you could do with some

extra space in your home and don’t want

to through the hassle and cost of moving,

call one of UDR’s design consultants and

get your free no-obligation quote. They

might just have the solution you are

looking for.Email office@udr.co.nz, visit

the website www.ultimate-design.co.nc or

call them to book an appointment on 03

Lexus UX – gateway

into the marque

Gardening

I NEVER would have

picked the change of

direction that Lexus has

travelled in the last few

years.

The company came onto

the global market in 1989

with a large sedan and

since then sport sedans,

coupes and convertibles,

along with a luxury fourwheel-drive

vehicle, have

accounted for a large part

of its sales.

However, in recent times,

to capitalise on the global

demand for sport utility

vehicles, Lexus has changed

direction slightly, there are

a large number of SUVs in

the company’s line-up, and

it is ever-increasing.

Just recently, a compact

SUV has been launched by

Lexus. Badged simply UX,

it sits beneath the smallto-medium

NX and RX. If

you think of Toyota RAV4

size, then the UX is about

that stature, however, it gets

a heap of upmarket kit that

clearly has it sitting in the

luxury car category.

The UX lands here in

force, there are seven

front-wheel-drive and allwheel-drive

variants, all are

2-litre powered, yet there

is the option of hybrid

technology. From what I’m

picking up from Lexus New

Zealand and at local dealer

level, the hybrid is the car

to beat and it is the subject

of this evaluation , an

F-Sport Limited to be exact.

It sits at $72,900.

Incidentally, the UX hits

the showroom floors at

$59,900 for a 2-litre petrol,

while a range-topping

4WD Limited hybrid sits at

$75,900.

I’ve driven a lot of

hybrids out of the Lexus

and Toyota stables recently,

and I agree, the UX in

hybrid form takes a lot

of beating. For one the

hybrid system has become

what I would call normal.

Whereas once hybrids

took a little understanding

and a technique to drive

them effectively, that has

all changed. Today’s hybrid

works much like any other

petrol-powered car, it feels

just so right, and in Lexus

form the refinement within

the driveline mechanicals

makes it hard to detect any

transfer of power between

electric delivery and when

the petrol engine kicks in.

Of course, there are

many other benefits other

than the sophistication,

the UX hybrid is rated

with a 4.5-litre per 100km

(63mpg) combined cycle

fuel usage rating. That

claim sits well with the

readout on the evaluation

car, it was showing around

7l/100km (40mpg) when

LEXUS UX 250H: Two-litre engine with or without

hybrid option.

I took it back to the

dealership.

The UX is also quick,

that’s the benefit of electric

delivery. It will scamper

to 100km/h in 8.6sec, and

will complete an overtake

manoeuvre in 5sec. The

latter is attributed to the

solid mid-range delivery

between electric and

petrol, the UX has dynamic

performance, Lexus

claiming power outputs of

135kW and 188Nm.

• Price – Lexus UX

250h F-Sport,

$72,900

• Dimensions –

Length, 4495mm;

width, 1840mm;

height, 1520mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

1987cc,

135kW, 188Nm,

continuously

variable automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.4sec

• Fuel usage –

4.5l/100km

Not only is the UX

a spirited drive, it also

handles with aplomb. I

guess it doesn’t wear a

F-Sport badge for nothing,

the UX has accurate

corner turn-in and definite

steering feel.

This is something

Lexus does so well, the

steering is involving and

communicative. Riding

on beautiful Bridgestone

Turanza tyres (225/50

x 18in), there is a lot of

rubber in contact with the

road and it shows, grip

levels are high even without

the four-wheel-drive

option.

There is little sensation

power is coming out the

front wheels only, the UX

is balanced and controlled

and, of course, you get an

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

amazingly compliant ride,

traditional with all Lexus

models.

That luxury feel doesn’t

end there, the cockpit and

cabin area is plush, the way

Lexus create interiors is a

real credit. The test car was

trimmed with white leather,

yet there are contrasting

elements which work

effectively to tone down

the overpowering effect of

light.

There are also the

ingredients which luxury

car owners would expect

even from an SUV. The

UX is chock full of the

latest technology for safety,

comfort and convenience,

and its styling and design

inside and out is eyecatching

and desirable. All

of the ingredients are in

place to make the UX very

much a part of the Lexus

family.

Lexus claim the UX is

the gateway model into the

brand. I guess that’s a good

call, however, the company

will have to market that

hard, Toyota have just

launched an amazing new

RAV4, and some models

have similar drivelines to

the UX. While it’s nice to

step up into Lexus luxury,

some buyers may well be

happy with the cheaper

option.

Wherever the UX goes in

terms of sales, it is just part

of a spectacular range of

Lexus models.

Personally, I’d still be

sticking to one of the sport

sedans or coupes from the

stable, but for those who

do need or want an SUV,

the UX will certainly be a

purchase which will keep

the buyer happy for many

years, and it will definitely

put a smile on their face

every time they see the

savings hybrids offer when

it comes to fill-up time at

the local service station.

Checklist for selling your home

MAKE SMALL FIXES

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes, and

correct the flaws that are most egregious

(if affordable) or can be relatively easily

fixed—from repairing cracks in the

walkways to repainting dingy walls or oiling

creaky hinges.

SET A PRICE

A real estate agent will give you a market

analysis free of charge or commitment.

Ask a few to get a broader picture of

the market, then ask to see listings for

properties similar to yours that have sold in

the past six months. Check out comparable

listings yourself in the real estate section

of your newspaper or on websites. Then

decide whether you want a quick, easy sale

or the highest possible price.

CLEAN & DECLUTTER

Weed out excess furniture, knicknacks, and

“stuff ”—toss it, donate it, give it away, sell it

at a yard sale, or put it into storage—so the

house seems more spacious and buyers can

imagine themselves in it.

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT

MAINTENANCE

From the moment you start showing

your house, keep the lawn mowed, shrubs

trimmed, gardens weeded, rooms spotless

and clutter-free.

READY YOUR HOME FOR OPEN

DAYS

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh

flowers or bowls of fruit, bake a batch of

cookies for the homey smell, open the

drapes, keep pets out of sight.

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO YOUR

OWN BUILDING INSPECTION

It may save you time, especially with older

homes, to identify - and potentially solve

- problems your buyer’s inspection will

discover later.

Advice for maintaining your home

As most New Zealanders’ homes are their

biggest investments it’s important to protect

them. Good maintenance will:

• Keep your home safe and secure

• Keep you and your family healthy

• Save you money by allowing you to fix

problems before they get bigger

• Protect your financial investment

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO

APPROACH MAINTENANCE?

Carry out regular preventative maintenance

to prevent some problems from occurring.

MAINTAINING YOUR HOME

Plan ahead for major maintenance tasks.

Be prepared for emergencies – know where

and how the water, gas and power supplies

turn off.

It is better to hire a tradesperson and get

the job done properly than to make costly

mistakes. By law, some jobs need to be done

by a professional, such as gas, plumbing,

drainage and some electrical work. Major

maintenance matters.

MOISTURE

Damp homes are unhealthy and harder

to heat. Combat persistent damp in your

home by:

• Insulating (under the floor, in the ceiling

and walls).

• Ventilating (including extractor fans in

bathrooms and kitchens, opening windows,

using a dehumidifier or forced ventilation

system and keeping vents clear).

• Heating (aim to keep the indoor

temperature at a minimum of 16C).

• Replacing unflued gas heaters with

electric or flued gas heaters.

Key reasons

to buy new

Buying new has many advantages. No one has

yet lived in your brand new home and it has that

new home smell and feel.

That doesn’t appeal to the villa crowd.

But many people dream of a home in a

new suburb.

There are many other advantages --

such as being able to customise the home

before it’s built. Buyers love it that their

build guarantee covers most things and

there’s little maintenance to do for the first

10 years.

There are a long list of reasons some

people dream of buying new.

They include:

• Current Building Code requirements

specify a higher standard of insulation

and glazing than you can expect in an

older home, which makes your new home

warmer in winter and cooler in summer,

meaning cheaper to run. In addition

there has been a vast improvement in the

quality and technology of construction

materials over the last decade.

• New homes are designed for modern

lifestyles with walk-in wardrobes, double

or triple car garaging, en suites and heat

pumps.

• Internal access garaging.

• Indoor-outdoor flow. Home builders

before the 1970s rarely thought about this.

• Automatic pool covers and electric

curtains are included in a lot of new

homes, he says.

• In a new subdivision you’re not going

to have five cross-leased small homes next

door to your architecturally designed fivebedroom

dream home, he says.

• New purpose-built shopping and

service centres cater for the modern life.

• New schools can be popular. New

schools are being designed with “Modern

Learning Environments”, which are

considered better layouts for 21st-century

learning.

Another important factor is it’s easier

to get a mortgage. New Reserve Bank of

New Zealand loan to value (LVR) ratio

restrictions from October 1 don’t relate

to new homes. Likewise the KiwiSaver

HomeStart grant is doubled for first time

buyers.

When it comes to new apartment

buildings they’re built to a higher

standard of earthquake/fire proofing and,

hopefully, are no longer leaky.

There are, of course, disadvantages to

buying new. Not everyone wants to wait

six or 12 months to move into their home.

Other downsides include:

• Borrowing to cover the progress

payments is more complex than taking

out a mortgage on an existing property.

• Builders and developers can go broke,

leaving the buyer in an awkward position.

• With some new homes the buyer

effectively needs to become a project

manager.

• You have to deal with council for

building and sometimes resource consent.

• The location may be further from the

centre than you wanted.

• If it’s infill housing you might have a

cross lease situation that some people find

tricky.

• There are often teething problems with

a new build.

• You won’t get a quaint tree-lined

street.

• Your section will most likely be

smaller than that of an existing home.

• Fences, paths and landscaping might

need to be added at a cost.

Property Market Update

with Farmlands Real Estate

District growth opens

up opportunities

Selwyn is the fastest growing

district in Canterbury.

Population estimates are at just

over 60,000 for the 2018/2019

period, growing by more than

1,000 people in the 2019/2020

year.

Currently, there are new

housing subdivisions spread

throughout the district and in

various stages of completion;

particularly in Lincoln and

Rolleston. There are also large

Linda Fogarty. building projects happening

within the town centres.

“This growth opens up options

for more businesses to become part of this expanding

district and why wouldn’t you want to live and work

here,” says Linda Fogarty, Canterbury Regional Manager

for Farmlands Real Estate.

In January, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand reported

mortgage lending had increased with first home buyers

still the strongest group, purchasing almost a quarter of

properties sold in New Zealand.

With lending criteria varying (depending on factors

such as a borrower’s financial situation), Linda always

recommends to people seeking to buy a home who will

need finance, to contact their bank or mortgage broker

before they start looking so they are better able to make

an informed decision.

Linda believes the Government’s decision not to

introduce a Capital Gains Tax will reassure potential

buyers. This coupled with the currently low interest rates

should see confidence return to the market.

“We’re finding more people out and about, looking at

open homes and expressing interest in making an offer

on their desired property,” adds Linda.

Recently reported Statistics New Zealand figures

suggest October’s Foreign Buyers’ Ban has cut into

property demand, particularly in parts of Auckland and

Queenstown.

The new legislation means that for buyers to be able to

purchase a property in New Zealand, they need to have

New Zealand, Australian or Singaporean citizenship or

residency, and have lived in New Zealand for at least

183 days for the past 12 months. Those who do not

meet the criteria can apply for consent, to the Overseas

Investment Office (OIO).

Linda says the rules have become tighter. Where

previously overseas buyers could not purchase rural and

lifestyle blocks (over five hectares in size), or in land

sensitive areas such as the foreshore, seabed, an historic

area, or land which is part of a Māori reserve, without

OIO consent, the new restrictions now include buying a
