Mort gets a second run at life after rescue

SPECIAL: Mort the dog may have had a rough start to life. But after hours of training his owner Vikki Smith now has him taking

part in cross country competitions for dogs.

MORT THE dog had a rough

start to life.

About eight months ago,

the huntaway cross, which

now attends the Selwyn Dog

Training Club, was found tied

up and under weight, covered

in fleas and worms on a farm in

Timaru.

But the 14-month-old had

a lucky escape when he was

rescued by a dairy farmer

and now has a new home

in Halswell. His new owner

Vikki Smith, 30, said when

she first brought him home in

December, the unruly dog had

“no social skills.”

“When I first got him he

would scream and lunge if he

saw dogs on the horizon,” she

said. •Turn to page 7

Mother of

woman

who was

harassed

calls for

charges

• By Anan Zaki

ONGOING harassment of a

disabled woman in Leeston

has resulted in trespass notices

against three youths.

But the mother of the woman

believes the youths should

have been charged with assault

following an incident on March

25.

She believes if police had taken

action earlier it would have prevented

her daughter from being

allegedly assaulted again nearly

two months later on May 19.

The mother said she will

lay a complaint with the

Independent Police Conduct

Authority. She did not want to be

named to protect her daughter’s

identity.

It’s alleged the youths first

assaulted the disabled woman,

in her 40s, on March 25 at her

house in Leeston at about 11pm.

She suffers from cyclic vomiting

syndrome.

SELWYN TIMES

THERE’S A very heart-warming story

on the front page today about Mort, the

huntaway cross.

Many dogs have sad lives; neglected and

beaten by cowardly owners who treat them

badly simply because they can.

These dogs have complex behavioural problems. The

underlying ones are fear and mistrust which in turn leads to

more issues.

But luckily Mort now has a loving home and is doing well.

It takes a lot of care and love, not to mention patience, to turn

a rescue dog around. But as Mort’s new owner Vikki Smith is

finding, the rewards are worth it.

Treat a dog well and they will return the affection and be a

loyal mate for life.

Community board

criticises Templeton quarry plan

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A COMMUNITY board

submission criticising Fulton

Hogan’s contentious Templeton

quarry plan is set to be finalised

today.

The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

has highlighted

“significantly

adverse

effects” from

the proposed

Roydon Quarry

if it is allowed to

go ahead. They

Mike Mora

Simon

Moore

include:

•The impact

the quarry

will have on

transport

infrastructure

and health of

water bodies.

•The quarry

is not consistent

with the Selwyn

District Plan;

land and water

plan; regional air plan; and

other strategic plans in the area.

•Residents loss of rural

character, adverse visual

impacts and potential health

effects associated with the

discharge of contaminants.

•A negative impact on nearby

businesses – particularly

training stables located around

Templeton.

•NOISE AND vibrations which

would negatively impact on

the planned cemetery at 173

Maddisons Rd.

An external consultant

was hired to help with the

submission.

In late November, Fulton

Hogan made a resource consent

application to quarry at a 170ha

site bordered by Curraghs,

Dawsons, Jones and Maddisons

Rd. The proposal received major

backlash from residents.

Last year more than 405

people signed a petition, which

was presented to Environment

Canterbury, the Environment

Ministry and Selwyn District

Council, opposing the quarry.

was hopeful the submission will

have a major impact in stopping

the quarry from going ahead.

Weedons quarry opponent

Simon Moore said the

submission reflects concerns

residents

have, particularly those relating

to traffic, dust and water.

He said it is good to see the

city council is taking it seriously

and every submission creates an

argument for why the quarry

shouldn’t go ahead.

“We have been saying all

along it is a totally inappropriate

place to plonk a quarry and that

is all they are doing, they are

plonking it there,” Mr Moore

said.

Celebrating Selwyn art in Lincoln

Down by the Liffey

Gallery in Lincoln has

been displaying art

since 2011, reporter

Anan Zaki met the

brains behind it

JIM AND FRANCIE Conolly

have long admired art of all

forms.

Eight years ago, the Lincoln

couple were offered an opportunity

they couldn’t turn down –

opening their own art gallery.

Down by the Liffey Gallery

on James St is a lonely structure,

near the Liffey Stream.

“It [the building] was built as

the Lincoln Library in 1911 for

King George V’s coronation,”

Mrs Conolly said.

It became a toy library in the

1990s before it was left vacant

again in 2009.

“One of our friends asked:

‘Francie, what are you going to

do about that building?’” Mrs

Conolly said.

“We said we think it would be

a good art gallery,” she said.

Mr Conolly believed the couple

were asked that question because

he had lived in Lincoln for 40 years

and Mrs Conolly for 26 years.

The district council – which

owns the building – did not want

was chosen because of its location

near the Liffey Stream.

It became a sanctuary for

artists from across the district.

“Before the gallery opened,

all artists in Selwyn used to go

off for about 10 days in February

every second year visiting

all these different places in the

district,” Mrs Conolly said.

“What we did was take all our

paintings and take paintings

of our friends who didn’t have

anywhere to show them. From

there we thought we need

somewhere for people to put

their art.”

And it was all about celebrating

the Selwyn art scene.

“A lot of people didn’t have a

facility to show that art,” Mrs

Conolly said.

While she appreciates all forms

of art, her husband is the artist of

the two.

But Mr Conolly is modest

about his own artistic ability.

“It was just part-time

[painting]. I’m not good

enough to have a whole

exhibition for myself,” Mr

Conolly said.

“Usually, I try to do

paintings of things that

have happened in my life

– nature, the bush, mountains.”

Once a year, the gallery’s

150 members put on a

members only show. And

being a community gallery,

schools are also invited to

display art every year.

“Last year we had Broadfield

School and Ladbrooks

School,” he said.

Some artworks displayed

at the gallery are sold at

the owner’s request, with a

commission going to help

run the place.

“Although we don’t pay

rent, we have phone bills,

Eftpos, power and Mike

Glover, [the gallery administrator],”

Mr Conolly said.

He said the district’s art

scene is surprisingly good.

There are a number of art

groups and galleries which

operate and contribute

positively to the district’s

art scene, Mr Conolly said.

Until two years ago,

Down by the Liffey Gallery

was run by volunteers but

the workload for day to day

operations required a paid

person, he said.

Mr Glover, an artist from

Springston, who previously

volunteered, stepped into

the role of the administrator.

“It’s a place for local people

to exhibit their work.

We’ve got quite a bit of first

time exhibitors – that gives

people a real boost to show

their work,” Mr Glover

said.

“Because it’s primarily

run by volunteers it’s

a great little community

enterprise.”

Mrs Conolly said the gallery’s

biggest asset was its

volunteers such as Adriana

de Groot.

“Without them it

couldn’t function,” she

said.

The couple never imagined

they would still be

helping run the gallery

eight years after it opened.

They only have one wish

for the gallery going into

the future.

“I just hope that it stays

as a little exhibition centre,”

Mr Conolly said.

Mother calls for charges

•From page 1

“The three youths knocked on

her door, they hid nearby and

then the assault happened when

she opened her front door to see

who was there,” the mother said.

She said one of the three youths

swung a “heavy stick” at the

woman and another “punched

her sternum,” causing her to fall,

injuring her tailbone.

“Despite a 111 call, it

took about an hour for

the police to arrive,” the

mother said.

The officer drove to the

area where the “thugs” had

fled to then returned and

told the woman to phone

Leeston police, the mother said.

Her daughter was able to identify

the youths as they had harassed

her for a year. The mother phoned

local police the next day.

“Despite the names, residential

and work address being given . . .

no assault charge or trespass order

was done,” she said.

The mother phoned Christchurch

Central Police in April for an

update but she said she was told to

print a trespass notice herself.

The youths allegedly assaulted

the woman again on May 19 at

about 1.30am, breaking two front

teeth.

“She was woken by voices outside,

taunting her, and calling her

‘crazy lady’. She opened the door

slightly, to tell them ‘go away’.”

Hirone

Waretini

One of the three youths “shoved

his hand towards her mouth.”

Following the second assault,

police attended and wrote trespass

notices on the three, the

mother said.

The youths had an “independent

witness” providing an alibi for

the second incident so police did

not charge them with assault, she

said.

The second assault would

not had happened if police

had acted quicker following

the first incident, the mother

said. Her daughter did not

have witnesses of her own.

Acting Canterbury Rural

Area Commander Inspector

Hirone Waretini would not comment

about the assault allegations

because of a possible IPA complaint.

But he said completing and

serving trespass notices is not a

“prescribed function” of police.

“Each incident reported to

police is treated on a case-by-case

basis. As it’s understood a formal

complaint is expected to be laid

we would not be able to comment

further publicly,” Inspector

Waretini said.

“However, we would always

endeavour to provide any information

we are able to directly to

the complainant.”

Inspector Waretini said

“any time” a member of the

community is not satisfied with

police it will be looked into.

Giving Mort a new start

•From page 1

But determined not to give up,

Ms Smith initially started taking

Mort to the edge of Westlake

Reserve to get him used to

seeing other dogs.

Now Mort has participated

in his first cross-country

competition for canines and

is training to take part in

upcoming agility competitions

in the summer.

Recently he finished second in

the Canterbury Sled Dog Club’s

Winter Solstice competition

with Ms Smith’s partner Michael

Murray.

“He absolutely loves it. As soon

as his harness goes on, he sees

you putting his running gear on

and he gets so excited.”

Ms Smith spends about 10

hours a week training Mort, as

well as attending the Selwyn

Dog Training Club.

“When dogs are puppies it

is really important they learn

to focus on you when there are

other dogs around . . . Mort

didn’t have any of that. I noticed

when I first got him if any dog

was around he would just lose

his head,” he said.

Ms Smith also suspects Mort

was trained with physical

punishment.

“He is just such

“You just think

Queen’s Birthday honours for women

• By Anan Zaki

CELIA STEWART’S 40 years

of teaching music has been

recognised in the Queen’s

Birthday Honours List.

Mrs Stewart, of Lincoln, was

made a Member of the New

Zealand Order of Merit for her

services to music and education.

Also on

the list was

Kirwee

resident

Adrienne

Begg who

received

Adrienne Begg

a Queen’s

Service

Medal for

services to sport and community.

Said Mrs Stewart: “It’s lovely

to be acknowledged for the

work that’s been done. It’s a

group effort, I’ve got wonderful

colleagues.”

She has been the music

director of the Christchurch

School of Music since 2012.

Mrs Stewart also helped

maintain the Christchurch Big

Band Festival and is active in

fundraising. She continues to

serve on the Music Education

Canterbury executive and is

the co-music director of more

than 1200 students who compete

in the Strum, Strike and

Blow festival.

Mrs Stewart was chair of the

Music Education New Zealand

Aotearoa board from 2013 to

2015.

She has also often run

workshops and has supported

schools in their music programmes

on a voluntary basis.

“It’s just my belief in music’s

value on people’s lives. It’s so good

for so many aspects for children’s

development and we have a lot of

adults as well who come back to

it,” Mrs Stewart said.

Kirwee community stalwart

Mrs Begg has been involved

in a range of roles with sports

and community organisations

since the 1960s.

She was secretary of the

Courtenay Agricultural and

Pastoral Association from

1982 to 2014, served as president

in 2015 and remains a

committee member.

She was also a member of

Hazards tested drivers during

MOTORING IS synonymous

with living in 21st-century

Selwyn.

The increasing volume of traffic

travelling along the main arterial

routes within the district in

the morning and late afternoon

rush hours are proof of that.

The urban sprawl from

Christchurch, the development

of industry and the growth in

agriculture within the district

continues to put pressure on local

roading infrastructure.

Fortunately, the district

has one of the largest roading

networks in the country to cope

with this, but this was not always

the case.

It was not until the introduction

of early motor vehicles that

the local roads boards (forerunners

to county and later district

councils) were encouraged to

spend more money on road

construction and improving the

quality of the roads.

Farmers could see the benefits

of having better roads that would

ensure their products got to

markets quicker, and such improvements

were made as many

farmers were elected onto rural

roads boards.

The first two internal combustion

engine cars arrived in New

Historian and district council staff member Wayne

Stack continues his monthly look

at Selwyn’s past. Anyone with suggestions for

future features can phone Wayne on

021 119 9107. This month’s feature is about motoring.

Zealand in February 1898, although

they could not be legally

driven on the colony’s road at

that time.

Motoring was so new that

legislators had not yet decided on

how to deal with the unfamiliar

contraptions.

The engines for these early

cars had only been developed by

Gottleib Daimler in Germany

14 years earlier in 1884, with

Karl Benz’s first primitive petroldriven

tri-car not being built

until the following year.

Motoring in New Zealand

was first formally promoted by

Wellington MP William McLean

Our Great

history

WITH WAYNE STACK

when he introduced a private

members Bill seeking permission

to import and drive motor

vehicles and to store flammable

substances for their propulsion.

This resulted in the introduction

of the Motor-Car Act (1898).

The act limited the speed of vehicles

to 12 miles per hour, with

vehicles having to be registered

with local authorities and after

sunset having to carry a forward

facing light.

The first car (a Benz) to arrive

in Canterbury was shipped to

Christchurch by Nicholas Oates.

He was to receive the first traffic

fine when he failed to stop the

vehicle when he came upon a

tethered horse. The horse bolted

taking the lamp post which it

was tied to with it. This resulted

in Oates receiving a hefty fine of

£30.

Steam-powered cars were

also introduced about this

time, with a Locomobile steam

car being the first car to make

a journey from Dunedin to

Christchurch in 1901.

The first steam-powered car

(more accurately a motorised

buggy) in Australasia was built

in the Addington Railway

Workshops in 1880 and was said

to have travelled up to 30mp/h.

the golden age of motoring

Motoring as a pastime was not

a popular concept with some sectors

of New Zealand society.

Horse-drawn cartage was the

traditional mode used by freight

carriers and motor vehicles were

initially seen as a threat to this,

while church leaders advocated

that motorists should not be able

to drive on Sunday – the sabbath.

At the turn of the

19th-century the poor state of the

roads in Canterbury, especially

in rural areas such as the Selwyn

District, limited motoring mainly

to town and city streets. The

roads in the country areas were

mostly poorly maintained bridle

tracks whose conditions were

at the mercy of the weather and

geography.

Dusty in summer and muddy

in the winter, the corrugations

in the roads threatened to shake

the early cars to pieces, with the

abrasive silica dust damaging

exposed engine parts. Examples

of such tracks that are now main

roads includes Shands Track

(now Rd) and Old West Coast

Rd.

For many years there was a

lack of bridges in the district and

drivers were forced to ford rivers

and streams, sometimes with

dire consequences to the driver,

passengers and vehicles.

DANGER: Fording rivers was a common practice in the Selwyn District where few roads had bridges. Right – An early Ford car attempting

a rough hill road.

Likewise, the roads and tracks

in the foothills and Porters and

Arthur’s Passes challenged the

most hardy of drivers and vehicles.

For these reasons the Model T

Ford, which was introduced in

1908, proved to be very popular

in New Zealand, especially with

farmers. It was simple and robust

and could take the knocks from

poor country roads, bush tracks

and farm paddocks.

Early motorists did not have to

obtain a licence, which did not

occur until 1924, while compulsory

third party insurance was

not introduced until 1928. Warrants

of fitness for private motor

cars was not obligatory until as

late as 1937.

Cars were expensive and owning

one became a status symbol

for the wealthy, although they

were put to practical use. They

became an essential tool for rural

doctors in being able to deliver

bedside services to their patients

in isolated areas.

Early motorists also had to

carry their own petrol supply in

four gallon cans known as ‘flimsies’

which they bought from the

local grocer or blacksmith. It was

not until 1926 that petrol bowsers

were introduced.

Over the years, motoring has

become an important aspect of

the social life of New Zealanders.

The Automobile Association was

established initially to promote

social gatherings for motorist,

with the first club started in

Christchurch as early as 1900.

Such activities grew in popularity

over the years with the arrival of

bigger touring cars in the 1920s

and 1930s.

For the past two years, the early

days of motoring in the Selwyn

District have been celebrated at

an annual vintage car rally held

on Anzac Day. The rally attracts

an average of 70 vintage cars dating

from the early 1900s through

to 1945. The rally begins at the

Darfield Recreation Centre and

follows a local route that includes

Springfield, Glentunnel and

Hororata, before returning to

Darfield.

And although not as fast,

comfortable or provided with

the safety features of modern

vehicles, it is these cars of

yesteryear that provide a

continual reminder of the golden

age of motoring in district.

Greasy cutworm

THE GREASY cutworm

Agrotis ipsilon is a

cosmopolitan moth whose

larvae attack a large variety

of vegetable, cereals and

grasses.

Moths are grey to brown

in colour, have a wingspan

of about 50mm with dark

markings on forewing. The

moth acquires its scientific

species name from the

black y-shaped marking on

the forewing resembling

the Greek letter upsilon.

The moths are nocturnal,

can be observed throughout

the year, but are seen

most often between October

and April.

Females produce

pheromones to attract

males for mating. Females

can lay between 600 to 800

eggs on crevices in ground

which take several days to

hatch.

The larvae are greasy in

appearance and can vary

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology

(insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces

a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His

column aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity,

list of invertebrates found at http://naturewatch.org.nz/

in colour from light grey to

dark brown or purple and

reach 25-30mm in length.

Each larvae can consume

as much as 400 square

centimetres of vegetation

above ground before it

then heads below the soil

surface for the latter part of

its development.

Pupation usually occurs

under ground or litter

where it often over-winters.

Globally the species can

have between one and four

generations, depending

on the climate; in New

Zealand, two to three

generations occur.

Natural enemies include

Your Local Views

Readers respond to the

Selwyn Times’ article

about police crackdowns

on driver distraction

Alan Harris – Good to see

a crackdown by police on this.

Cellphone use is probably the

most obvious cause of distraction

and people flouting the

law and putting others at risk is

commonplace.

Continuing to “educate” drivers

has some merit but as I see

it people who continue to use

a hand-held cellphone while

driving either can’t read or don’t

care. The current penalty of $80

and 20 demerit points is not a

deterrent.

The penalty for hand-held

cellphone use while driving in

Australia is A$400, the United

Kingdom is GB£200 (NZ$400)

and in Canada up to C$1000

(NZ$1100).

In my view the financial penalty

should be increased to $200

or thereabouts and also include

on-the-spot confiscation of the

phone, either temporarily or

permanently which ever is easier

for police to manage.

I would also like to see a more

visible police presence on the

roads although I appreciate they

can’t be everywhere.

Jo Lamont – I think this

is fantastic news I really think

we should bring in much much

larger fines for texting. At least

what they have in Australia

demerits and instant fines.

I do a lot of walking around

Rolleston and feel at a certain

times of the day you can see

at least one driver in five are

texting.

This seems to be people of all

ages not just young people – also

a lot of business people. I really

don’t understand what is that

important – nothing is.

I am also a passenger in a car a

lot as the husband likes to drive

– I feel like I should have my

camera on constantly as I see so

many people texting even going

100km/h – they weave all over

the road, then are stationary

when the lights change.

Anyway all go for changes.

LAURA’S recovery is going

well, however, now she has a

nasty cold so family-fun-time

continues, with added sniffling

and groaning.

Before the dreaded lurgy took

hold here Laura had some time

out with a friend and fellow mum

while I took Vittoria to the movies.

Alone.

We have taken her to the movies

before, but when she was a

proper wee baby. With her being

a full-on toddler, I was worried

about how it would go.

The session I picked had a

lot going in my favour. It was a

special screening for parents with

small kids and we were watching

Pokemon Detective Pikachu.

Bright colours, fun characters.

Attention-grabbing, with a

healthy amount of adult humour

and nostalgic value for a former

Pokemon Red aficionado. In

theory, good for both of us.

We managed to get there the

was pretty empty as she just

She went down the stairs,

their entire popcorn box through

the seat.

I retrieved it and gave it back

What animal features outside the Lincoln Library?

Not sure? It’s one of the questions in Eye Spy Selwyn, part of this year’s KidsFest. Eye Spy

Selwyn is among a host of new events for KidsFest these winter holidays. Similar to the 100

Days of Summer challenge, it will encourage young people to get out and about, practise jokes,

complete challenges and answer questions all over the district.

KidsFest is back for the winter holidays and bookings have opened at kidsfest.co.nz.

Events will be run at Selwyn Libraries and Selwyn Aquatic Centre and across the district, including

a moviemania showing of Ferdinand the Bull and the first ever Discomania in Tai Tapu.

Families are encouraged to get in quick to register their children for their preferred activities, with

perennial favourites such as the high ropes challenge always booking out quickly.

Children and families are also encouraged to start preparing early for the popular Kids Market

10am–12pm on 11 July. With the second-hand sale attracting hundreds of applications from

young people wanting stalls, people will need to get in quick to register. Family and friends are

encouraged to clear their diaries and make sure they can get along to grab some great bargains.

For more information visit selwyn.govt.nz/kidsfest, or pick up a KidsFest booklet from a Selwyn

Library, the Lincoln Event Centre, Rolleston Community Centre or Selwyn Aquatic Centre.

Local body elections coming in October

This October, Selwyn residents will again have the opportunity to vote in local elections.

Voters will be able to vote for councillors in their local ward, and for the mayor of Selwyn. In Malvern,

elections will also be held for community board members. As part of the local elections, voters will also

choose members on the Canterbury District Health Board and Environment Canterbury (Regional Council).

Local elections happen every three years, and are an opportunity for voters to elect their representatives

on the Council. Local representation is important because councils look after things which residents

interact with and use daily such as roads, footpaths, waste management and drinking water. Councils

also control local parks, libraries and swimming pools, while working to enhance the district’s culture

and economic development.

Voting papers will be posted out to eligible voters from 20 September and must be posted, or hand

delivered to the Council, by 12pm on 12 October 2019. Anyone enrolled as a parliamentary elector will

automatically be on council’s electoral roll as a residential elector. If you need to enrol or update existing

name or address details on the parliamentary electoral roll, you can do so at any Post Shop, online at

www.elections.org.nz or by phoning 0800 36 76 56.

If you pay rates on property in Selwyn but live outside the district, you may be

eligible to enrol as a ratepayer elector. The ratepayer enrolment form can be

downloaded from www.selwyn.govt.nz/elections.

The election is also an opportunity for people to consider standing for council

or the community board. For information, download the candidate information

handbook at www.selwyn.govt.nz/elections.

Changes for Council building a

sign of growth

Visitors to the Council headquarters in Rolleston will notice some

changes over the coming months.

Construction work will begin on Monday 17 June to build a new

customer services space and an office extension. The Council and

the building will remain open for business as usual through this time.

The project, signalled in the Council’s 2018-2028 Long-Term Plan, will

include a large new customer services area right at the front entrance.

This will bring together the existing customer services teams, which

were previously located in different areas in the building.

The building project reflects the growth of the district and the increase

in Council staff numbers required to meet the changing needs of its

residents, Business Relationship manager Stephen Hill says.

“The feedback we’ve had from people is that our customer services

teams do a really great job, but putting them together in one area

will make it simpler for people to find who they need.

“It also gives us a good opportunity to look at our systems and

make sure we’re giving people the most timely, efficient and

accurate service we can.”

All Council services will be operating as usual, but the main

entrance doors will be out of action because of building work, so

people will enter the building through the western staff entrance.

Car parking will be available in this area.

“We hope customers will bear with us while we make these

improvements. Many services such as rates, dog registration and

consent applications can also be completed through the Council’s

website selwyn.govt.nz,” Mr Hill says.

The new customer services area will be built in the space currently

occupied by the Mayor, Chief Executive and their support staff,

who will relocate to a new extension on the Rolleston Drive side of

the building.

Seismic strengthening of the Council chamber is also being

done, so it meets the requirements to operate as an Emergency

Operations Centre.

The Council is aiming to have the new customer services space

open by early November with the entire project planned to take

about eight months. The public will be kept updated via the

Council’s website and Facebook page.

Malvern and Ellesmere recycling

days prove popular

Two community recycling drop-off days proved popular with

Malvern and Ellesmere residents.

The two days in April provided local residents with an alternative

drop-off location for the garden waste and some types of

recyclables. The events were managed by Council contractors

with help from the Malvern Lions and the Ellesmere Heritage Park.

Donations have been passed on to these groups in recognition of

their assistance on the drop-off days.

Over the two days, 220 vehicles dropped off nearly 24,000kg of

organic waste which will now be composted, as well as 6,400kg of

scrap metal, over 150 tyres and 50 TVs for recycling.

Council Solid Waste manager Andrew Boyd said the popularity of

the event was good to see and the Council is looking to increase

the number of different recycling streams accepted at these

community drop-off days. “It is encouraging to see so many

residents turn up and dispose of these materials in a way that will

benefit the environment, and to be able to support local groups at

the same time.”

The next drop-off days are in Ellesmere on Saturday 2 November

and in Malvern on Saturday 23 November.

Brett goes from first-five to selling

• By Gordon Findlater

FLAIR: Stephen Brett sells Kiwi-style pies in France. ​

STEPHEN BRETT was once

regarded as the Crusaders next

great first-five before taking his

talents overseas.

Now, he’s reconnected with

two of his former Christchurch

Boys’ High School teammates

and is helping take a Kiwi

favourite to Europe.

Brett made 39 appearances

for the Crusaders between 2006

and 2009 scoring four tries and

amassing 164 points.

After hanging up his boots

last year, he’s now living in

Narbonne, France, and owns the

distribution rights to NZ Craft

Pies.

The company was started in

Sweden by Brett’s former CBHS

teammate Tom Simpson.

“I started three months ago

and business is booming. I’ve got

myself into a few restaurants and

a few stadiums,” he said.

“There’s so many tourists I

know over here and the first

thing they do when they get

back home is have a pie because

you don’t have that opportunity

here, so there’s a big market for it

. . . the French don’t really know

pies, so I’m just trying to get

them into the French locals, but

we’re getting good comments

from them.”

They have also recently

expanded into Germany with

some of them.

the help of Josh Keys, who also

played with Brett and Simpson

at CBHS.

Brett got his first taste of

rugby at four-years-old with

Sydenham.

However, he soon switched

codes and joined the Woolston

Rams rugby league club as his

grandfather was the president.

He comes from strong rugby

pedigree – his mother, Lesley,

played three tests for the Black

Ferns and his step-father, Victor

Simpson, was a stalwart of the

Canterbury midfield who played

two tests for the All Blacks in

1985.

His father Steve Brett is also a

former New Zealand volleyball

rep and played in the National

Basketball League in the 1980s

for Palmerston North.

Brett played league until his

teenage years when he returned

to union at CBHS.

He won Press Cups with the

first XV in 2002 and 2003 and

continued a tradition of the

school producing stand-out

first-fives during the 1990s and

2000s, including the likes of

Andrew Mehrtens, Dan Carter,

Aaron Mauger and Colin Slade.

“I wouldn’t have a clue why

they produced so many, I think

the first-fives just want to go to

that school . . . thing is I’m the

only one out of the lot who never

became an All Black,” said Brett.

Following secondary school,

Brett quickly progressed

through the ranks and was

playing NPC for Canterbury just

a year out of CBHS.

In 2006, he made his

Crusaders debut from the bench

before going on to make a name

for himself with Canterbury.

Brett’s most memorable

season with the Crusaders came

in 2007 during Dan Carter’s

sabbatical, which saw him play

12 games and take the kicking

duties for a large chunk of the

campaign.

Kiwi-style craft pies in France

In his early Crusaders days,

Brett shared an apartment with

former school friends before

moving in with Sean Maitland

and Kahn Fotuali’i near Rugby

Park.

“We used to ride our little 50cc

motorbikes to training,” he said.

“Back in those days we were all

single, so we went out for dinner

more often than we cooked.”

Following the 2009 Crusaders

campaign, Brett signed with the

Blues for two seasons.

“For me to get a better look

into the All Blacks I needed to

get out of DC’s [Dan Carter]

shadow. I had some chats with

Pat Lam and he proposed a really

good thing and it was something

I needed at that point in my

career,” said Brett.

In his final season with the

Blues in 2011, Brett helped

them to the Super Rugby semifinal.

Since then the Auckland

franchise hasn’t made a playoff

appearance. Any staunch

Crusaders fan could also point

out that Brett was probably the

last decent first-five to grace a

Blues jersey.

However, Brett’s Blues days

ended in bizarre fashion.

He was rushed to hospital after

cutting his foot open at an endof-season

party at Ali Williams’

house. Brett came out of a spa

pool and stood on a glass. He

required a surgical exploration,

wash out and repair of the

damaged toes.

Soon after Brett moved to

Japan to join Toyota Verblitz on

a two-year deal, which ended any

hopes of an All Blacks cap.

“I probably shouldn’t have

left when I did to be honest. I

probably did leave a little bit

early, but I got offered a contract

I couldn’t resist,” he said.

Brett moved to France in 2013

and had stints with Narbonne,

Bayonne, Lyon and Clermont.

“I fell out of rugby when I was

playing over here if I’m honest

. . . back home there’s no

pressure, you just play for the

love of the game and your mates.

Over here if you lose a couple

of games you’ve got the club

presidents coming down on

you.”

After retiring from rugby

with Narbonne last year, he has

become the club’s video analyst

and hopes to become a full-time

coach, working towards a degree

in September.

Four generations of Jordans call Lincoln rugby home

• By Jacob Page

FOR FOUR generations, the

Jordan surname has been

synonymous with the Lincoln

Rugby Club.

The family recently added

talented loose-forward, Cameron

to their heritage at the club, a

fact which has grandfather, Tori,

beaming with pride.

“It took some convincing to

get him here because he followed

his mates to Rolleston but it’s

something.”

Tori’s father, Bill was the

first life member of the club, a

stalwart of the senior team in

the 1930s and an accomplished

referee who was considered a top

referee in Ellesmere.

Tori and his brothers Steven

and Meynell each played

Ellesmere junior rugby in the

1950s.

Tori’s sons Graeme and Daryl

each played senior rugby for

the club and now Cameron has

made his debut for the senior

team earlier this season.

Cameron is the only forward

in the bunch with Graeme a

winger, Daryl a centre, Tori a

winger and Steven a halfback

while Bill and Meynell were first

five-eighths.

“Dad was rugby mad, when

we first started here, there was

one field with a tin shed and

mum (Mary) used to do all the

afternoon teas and he was right

behind him all the way,” Tori

said.

PIONEER: Bill Jordan was the first life

member of the Lincoln Rugby Club, where

four generations of his family have played

their rugby.

“We’re all sport mad, it was

tennis football and cricket all the

time.

Tori played senior cricket for

Lincoln when he was at high

school.

“Just because they were short,”

he said.

Graeme, who now lives in

Queensland coached a young

Quade Cooper at the Logan club.

The family is also linked to

current Crusaders fullback,

Will Jordan, with Tori’s father’s

brother being Will’s greatgrandfather.

“It certainly makes Crusaders’

games more exciting for us,” Tori

said.

Bill won the Coleman

Shield in 1934, 1938 and 1939

and 1940 while Graeme won it in

1985. “It’s quite the legacy,” Tori

said.

GT-Line gives the Kia brand extra bite

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

KIA MOTORS New Zealand is

doing everything it can to raise

the profile of its ever-increasing

line-up.

Amidst its range of sport utility

vehicles and passenger cars is new

branding, the GT-Line is stretching

further into the company’s mix.

GT-Line can be found in new

Cerato and Sportage, and those

variants generally have more

features and a slant towards

higher performance – engine and

suspension.

One other model stands out

with its GT-Line badge, and that

is the Rio, a smallish hatchback

which has already made a name

for itself in the market for its

practicality and economy.

The Rio lands here in entry-level

form at $23,490 which makes it an

affordable package and there are

higher grade options depending

on how you would like it specced.

Topping the range is a $28,990

GT-Line which has an engine

totally devoid from that of its stablemates.

Instead of the tried and

tested 1.4-litre naturally-aspirated

four-cylinder unit, the GT-Line

gets a turbocharged three-potter

which is squarely aimed at Suzuki’s

$28,500 Swift Sport, in terms of its

position in the market.

WIN

$1000 *

TOWARDS YOUR

wardrobe

TRANSFORMATION

The 1-litre engine is considerably

more powerful than the base

model unit, yet it is also more

economical and, being lightweight

in design, it promotes an

agile handling feel.

Power is rated at a healthy

88kW and 171Nm, the turbo

boost ushering in a long torque

curve – 1500rpm to 4000rpm.

Maximum power arrives at

6000rpm, but bottom end

strength is strong enough to meet

the red-line without becoming

breathless.

For the three-cylinder novice

you will firstly notice the harmonics

associated with the design, it

appears lumpy and doesn’t always

seem balanced, that’s not really

the case it just seems that way.

However, it does have a characteristic

tone and that is manifested

through the cabin, that’s not a bad

thing, I like the sound and the

feeling it generates, it adds to the

sporty sensation Kia is trying to

achieve with the GT-Line.

Drive is channelled through a

seven-speed, dual clutch transmission,

therein lies another

notable sensation, there isn’t total

harmony between the engine and

gearbox, there are times when the

two don’t feel thoroughly connected,

notably when entering or

leaving reverse.

That aside, in all other circumstances

it works sweetly, shifts are

quick and combine to promote

the feel you would expect from a

car wearing a GT badge.

Performance is quite lively given

the engine has a displacement

of just 998cc. It will launch the

Rio to 100km/h from a standstill

in around 10sec and will happily

shift down for a highway overtake

in 6.6sec (80km/h to 120km/h).

The Rio in this form hasn’t lost

sight of its purpose, it is still the

economical fuel miser of its counterparts

- the LX, EX and Limited.

Kia NZ gives the turbo Rio

a 5.4-litre per 100km (52mpg)

combined cycle average.

Unfortunately, my time on the

highway was thwarted by a puncture

and I didn’t do anywhere

near the amount of kilometres I

would have preferred. However, I

can report that the Rio GT-Line

has spirited behaviour and tidy

handling manners.

Kia has uprated the suspension

quite noticeably, the GT-Line sits

very firm on the road and doesn’t

absorb much in the way of road

ripples. A bit of that has to do

with the low profile of the tyres

(205/45 x 17in) and the restricting

nature of the tube beam rear

axle that prohibits rear wheel

freedom. However, the handling

benefits are at the forefront, the

Rio GT-Line has sporty dynamics,

it steers sweetly into a corner

and powers out with composure.

Directional accuracy is sharp and

body balance over the suspension

is well contained thanks to the

firming.

As sporty as the Rio GT-line

suggests, it is still the practical

family car, the five-door layout is

appealing and the levels of comfort

aren’t overly compromised,

bearing in mind that at just over

4m, the Rio as a range isn’t big on

space,however, it does make good

use of its compact proportions and

will satisfy with its level of comfort.

Kia in New Zealand knows it

has to compete hard, in all of its

markets there are other brands

with tempting product.

I’m not sure the Rio GT-Line

has the spark to pip the Swift

Sport, but I do know is that Kia

NZ will be aggressive with its

marketing, and it will certainly

sell to those who want something

just a little different in their performance

car purchase.

SELWYN TIMES

Setting up winter feed crops to

minimise environment impacts

Farmers are being encouraged to consider

the environmental impacts of their wintering

systems as they begin transitioning livestock

onto winter feed crops.

Setting up feed paddocks in a way that

protects soil, nutrient and water resources

is good for business, animal welfare and

the environment, says Beef + Lamb New

Zealand.

When planning for winter, careful

thought needs to be given to:

1. Paddock/Grazing Management

When you’re standing at the gate

considering how best to feed your crop, here

are some factors to consider:

• Feed planning - How many animals will

this crop feed and for how long. Consider

using the B+LNZ FeedSmart app. This

app brings together a raft of variables to

give farmers instant information on: the

nutritional requirements of different classes

of livestock, feed values and feed allocation.

This app is especially helpful to estimate the

feed requirements for sheep and cattle at

any time of the year and to help estimate the

allocation of your winter crop. To find out

more go to: www.feedsmart.co.nz

• Exclude stock from waterways and

Critical Source Areas (CSAs) - Create an

ungrazed (preferably uncropped) buffer

zone of crop between the livestock and any

waterways. 3-5 metres is a good starting

point but this should increase with slope

and soil type risk. Identify areas that might

channel overland flow (Critical Source

Areas or CSAs) of soil nutrients and faecal

matter to water, fence these areas off during

grazing to reduce the risk of contaminating

waterways. CSA’s can be grazed quickly and

lightly when soil and weather conditions

allow.

• Trough placement and supplementary

feeding - Consider portable troughs that

you can move with breaks for stock drinking

water to help keep stock away from CSAs

and to reduce soil damage. Supplementary

feeding (hay and baleage) needs to be placed

away from CSAs, waterways and ideally fed

in drier parts of the paddock. Supplementary

feed should be put into the paddock prior to

grazing. This will help limit stock movement

and heavy vehicles on wet soils, helping to

reduce damage to the crop and soil.

2. Strategic grazing

• Fence placement – On a sloping

paddock, fence across the slope and start

grazing at the top of the paddock, so the

standing crop acts as a filter. Or, if there

is a waterway present, start grazing at the

opposite end of the paddock to the waterway.

• Make breaks “long and narrow” –

Research shows that the crop will be utilised

more efficiently by cattle.

• Back fence – Regularly back fence stock

off grazed breaks to help minimise pugging

damage and reduce run off risk.

• Matching stock to the paddock and

crop - Consider using high-risk paddocks

for grazing of lighter stock (sheep) while

lower risk paddocks can be used for grazing

heavier stock (cattle) or deer.

• Animal welfare – Is there appropriate

shelter and somewhere to lie down? If

necessary use a stand off area or otherwise

provide temporary bedding to allow stock

the opportunity to lie and rest on firm, dry

ground.

A newly-developed winter grazing

workshop, which connects good

management practice guidelines with

practical on-farm application, is being

rolled-out throughout the country. Look

at the Events section of the Beef + Lamb

NZ website or contact your local B+LNZ

Extension Manager.

National plan created

to eradicate M. bovis

The three partners working to eradicate Mycoplasma bovis (M.

bovis) have reaffirmed their commitment to achieving eradication and

support farmers through the eradication process.

The Ministry for Primary Industries, DairyNZ and Beef + Lamb

New Zealand released the 2019 M. bovis National Plan at a meeting

with farmers in Hamilton today.

The plan sets out three clear goals: to eradicate Mycoplasma

bovis from New Zealand; to reduce the impact of the disease and

the eradication programme for everyone affected; and to leave New

Zealand’s biosecurity system stronger.

M. bovis programme Director Geoff Gwyn said that the National

Plan is an important step in making sure that eradication is successful,

and that farmers are properly supported the whole way.

“The eradication effort is on track, but there is still a lot of hard work

to get done. There will be more farms put under movement restrictions,

and more farms that need to be depopulated,” says Gwyn.

“Finding out that your farm might be, or is, affected must be

incredibly hard news to receive, and we know that the process to get

clear of M. bovis causes hardship for farmers and their families, and

interruption to their business.

“We want to provide as much support and assistance as we can, as

well as working to continually improve the processes that farmers have

to get through to get clear of M. bovis.

“No country has attempted to eradicate M. bovis before, so there is

a lot we are learning and developing as we go. The farmer and public

meetings we’re holding over the next month are an important way for

us to hear from farmers about what is working and areas that can be

improved.”

DairyNZ’s Chief Executive Dr Tim Mackle says M. bovis has created

challenges for many farmers, both dairy and beef – not only those

affected by the disease, but for all farmers that have increased their

biosecurity measures on farm.

“The alternative – to let this disease

spread throughout the dairy and beef

stock – would have been a serious

challenge to the way we farm, and the

ongoing costs would have been significantly

higher,” says Dr Mackle.

“We believe maintaining a collaborative approach

to eradication is the best option for all farmers. By sitting

at the table, we can ensure that dairy farmers are getting value for

money from the eradication programme, costs are scrutinised,

performance is monitored, and that dairy farmer’s views are

represented to government.”

Beef + Lamb New Zealand Chief Executive Sam McIvor says:

“Although we are fortunate that M. bovis has had a less direct impact

on beef farmers, the risks to our friends and neighbours with dairy

farms means Mycoplasma bovis is a challenge that we can’t ignore.

“We will continue to sit at the table with government and DairyNZ

to ensure this eradication programme has the greatest chance of

success, and that farmers are represented every step of the way.”

As part of the programme’s commitment to continual

improvement, it is updating how it reports the number of affected

properties. They will report the total number of Confirmed

Properties, Active Properties, and Cleared Properties as the

most accurate and transparent way on the scale to report and

progress towards eradication.

RISINGHOLM COMMUNITY CENTRE

SELWYN TIMES

Cherished homestead

restored and ready to re-open

A cherished community resource in

Opawa, closed since the February 2011

earthquake, is set to re-open this week,

fully restored.

Risingholme, the historic homestead in

Cholmondeley Avenue, was badly damaged

in the earthquake, and then received

further devastating damage in a fire on

Queen’s Birthday weekend, 2016.

The restoration work, which started

in January 2018, is now complete, and

tomorrow Christchurch Mayor Lianne

Dalziel will officially reopen the homestead,

handing it back to the community, which

has been waiting eagerly to use and enjoy

it again.

Registered with the Historic Places Trust

as a Category 2 historic place and now in

its 75th year, this gracious building set in

beautiful park surroundings was purchased

and gifted to the city council in 1943 by

John McKenzie, founder of the McKenzies

retail stores, for the “health, amusement

and instruction of the public”.

That resulted in the ongoing development

of educational and leisure classes, covering

a wide diversity of topics and interests,

which over the years have drawn people of

all ages and backgrounds.

Director of Risingholme Community

Centre, the not-for-profit organisation that

runs the Adult and Community Education

classes, Wendel Karati, says people attend

classes for many reasons, perhaps following

trauma, wanting to learn a new skill, gain

employment or to enjoy the company of

like-minded people as they learn.

“Coming to a class can help restore selfconfidence

and bring new hope for people,”

she says.

During the closure of Risingholme

Homestead and Hall the Risingholme

Community Centre has continued to

operate from 99 Hawford Road, directly

behind Risingholme Park. Classes have

also been held at Riccarton High School,

Hornby High School and Girls’ High, as

well as at other community facilities around

the city.

The full programme of classes is listed on

the Risingholme website and enrolments

can be completed on the website or by

calling into the Risingholme Community

Centre office, 22 Cholmondeley Avenue,

Opawa.

The hall at Risingholme has also

been repaired and is again available for

community groups to hire.

OPEN DAY

Saturday 8th June

10am - 2pm

This Saturday, Risingholme is

holding an open day for people to

come and see the newly restored

homestead and find out about the

classes.

“There has been huge community

interest in the restoration, and this

will be an opportunity for people to

come and celebrate the reopening of

Risingholme,” Wendel says.

The open day will run from 10am-

2pm. Refreshments will be available

for purchase, including soup in a

special commemorative cup that has

been created in Risingholme’s pottery

studio.

Ornamental kale for colour through winter

• By Henri Ham

Fire rages, homes at risk

FLOWER GARDENS tend to

look a little dull at this time of the

year.

But there are some plants that

thrive once your summer annuals

pass their best. Ornamental kale

– an annual grown for its pretty

waved leaves and bright winter

colours – is the perfect plant to

insert some liveliness into your

garden right now.

Ornamental kale grows in

large, low rosettes, like prizes in

your garden. It’s a compact plant

that closely resembles a cabbage.

While you can eat it, it’s mostly

grown for its colourful leaves. But

if you’re really keen on tasting it,

you’ll find ornamental kale has a

very bitter taste.

What I like about this

type of kale is that it’s bold,

striking and, (best of all)

requires little care in your garden.

And, once established this fun

kale can deliver a good few

months of colour to your winter

garden.

There are a variety of

ornamental kales around. Most

have symmetrical green outer

leaves and purple rosey or creamy

white centres. Some have wider

cabbage-like leaves, others tight

frilly edges – similar to endive

lettuce.

The most popular type is

pigeon kale. It comes in both

purple and white varieties and has

a true rosette appearance.

Ideal for garden pots, borders

and edging, you might have

seen ornamental kale before in

large beds of town gardens or

in the middle of traffic islands.

When you plant ornamental

kale seedlings on mass (about

20cm apart) they develop a lovely

packed-in feel – really carpeting

a garden.

Once you’ve got your seedlings,

find a sunny well-drained spot in

CARPET-LIKE:

The more sun

your kale gets

the brighter

the colours will

be.

your garden. Dig holes around

5cm deep, 20cm apart and gently

place the seedlings in. Lightly

massage the root systems to

loosen them up.

If you’re not sure what to plant

alongside your kale, ornamental

grasses (carex) are an ideal easycare

companion.

The more sun your kale gets,

the brighter colours you’ll be

rewarded with. But don’t think

about planting them out too

early.

Ornamental kale is a true

winter plant that needs the cooler

night temperatures to thrive.

Once planted, give an initial

feed of liquid fertiliser. But after

this, just stick to water. Too much

fertiliser can cause the plant to

grow an elongated stem under the

rosette, which will detract from

its pretty, compact appearance.

In around six weeks you’ll start

to see colourful kale developing

in your garden beds.

Happy gardening.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE ST Andrew’s Co lege big

Fastier, co lapsed and died the

day before the competition

“Tom was a ba s player from

wi ning best ba s player a the

festival as he was a very a complished

musician,” head of music

Duncan Ferguson said.

“We were delighted to win, but

it was bi tersw et,” he said.

St Andrew’s won the most

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

Cave Rock

Apartments’

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

Only eight submi sions were

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

A report said there are two

Pupils learn about role of war horses

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

happy,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

Winder was part of the Pure

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

Can I offer on more than

one property at a time?

Some people fall in love at first sight

when they’re looking to buy a property,

but many like to keep their options until

the last minute. This is understandable,

because it can be scary signing up to such

a major financial commitment if you think

something better might come along. But it

can also be hard to know what to do if you’re

not sure if your offer on a property will be

accepted and you are worried about missing

out on the other ones on your wishlist.

“Every time you make an offer on a

property you are saying you are committed

to buying it, subject to whatever conditions

you include in the offer,” says Kevin

Lampen-Smith, chief executive of the Real

Estate Authority (REA). “These conditions

might be things like getting a satisfactory

property inspection, or confirming

insurance, or having finance approved. It

would be extremely unusual to add ‘we want

the right to change our minds in case we see

a property that we like more’.”

Remember that a sale and purchase

agreement – the document that you and the

seller sign that lays out all the particulars

of the property and any chattels being sold

with it, the price you are prepared to pay and

the date that it will take place – is a legally

binding contract, Lampen-Smith says.

“Whether you can make offers on

other properties will depend on how your

conditions are written. This is why it’s

crucial to get legal advice before making the

offer, which becomes legally binding as soon

as it’s accepted. If you offer on a property

while you’re waiting to hear back on another

one, you could end up with two accepted

offers and two legally binding contracts.”

The REA says a seller doesn’t have to

respond to your offer within a certain time

frame unless there is a strict deadline, such

as in a tender or deadline sale. If you are

making an offer on a property that is for

sale by negotiation or by advertised price,

and you think you might want to keep your

options open, talk to your lawyer about

adding an expiry time to it.

“Alternatively, if the deadline for offers has

not passed and you have a change of heart,

you could consider asking the agent about

withdrawing your offer,” Lampen-Smith

says. “In this situation we recommend you

have the agent confirm in writing that your

offer has been withdrawn.

“Keep in mind too that making a

conditional offer on a property, such as

having finance approved, will not necessarily

provide you with a ‘get out of jail free card’

if you subsequently decide you don’t want

to go through with the purchase. In this

situation you could be required to prove

you weren’t able to get finance. The better

option is simply to arrange for your offer to

be withdrawn promptly.”

Buying a property is a

complex process whether

you’re doing it for the first

time or not

Buying a property is a complex process

whether you’re doing it for the first time

or not – but it’s important to take every

decision seriously. If you’re finding it hard

to keep going on your property search, or

to commit to making an offer, it might be

helpful to remind yourself about why you

want to buy a home and to identify your

must-haves. Writing these things down can

help keep you on track and make it easier to

stay focused.

For independent advice on buying or

selling property, check out settled.govt.nz.

Yaldhurst 483 Yaldhurst Road

The options are endless

Look beyond the 'desks and books' of this once residential school and see the multiple opportunities (with the

appropriate consents) that this 2.24 hectare property presents - campground, tiny house/mobile home hub,

education centre or short-term accommodation facility. And it's all so close to the airport and supermarkets. Once

The McKenzie Residential School, this property was part of Roydon Lodge, owned by the late Sir John and Lady

May McKenzie. Developers, investors or buyers will appreciate the massive potential here that includes the original

two-storey homestead, additional buildings (including an accommodation block and a recreation building) and

grounds (including covered swimming pool and playground). Let your vision become a reality!

Disclosure rules

when selling a home

Real estate advertisements are designed

to make every property look like a dream

buy. That’s why they gloss over the negative

aspects and linger on the good points,

wanting you to be drawn in by the sundrenched

location rather than be put off by

lack of garaging. It’s no crime to gloss over

a property’s quirks, but lying by omission

or design about more serious matters is

not allowed. If you do this when selling

your property you may be at risk of being

sued by the purchaser.

When you’re ready to sell your property

it’s a good idea to get legal advice about

your obligations before you sign an agency

agreement. Most of these agreements,

which set out the terms and conditions

of your contract with the real estate

agent, require you to confirm that you are

unaware of any undisclosed defects in the

property and that you haven’t withheld any

information about it.

As a seller, you must also confirm

that your property has all the necessary

consents and code compliance certificates

for any building work. Any outstanding

consents, including ones that involve any

works at a neighbour’s property, should be

disclosed to the agent.

This is important for several reasons.

Licensed real estate agents have clear

obligations when it comes to disclosure.

They must not mislead a seller or

a potential buyer, or withhold any

information. While it’s not up to the

agent to uncover any hidden defects in a

property, they must tell any prospective

buyers what they know.

Under the Real Estate Agents Act 2008,

if licensed real estate agents suspect that a

property may have a defect then they are

obliged to ask the seller about it, or advise

potential buyers of any risks. For example,

if a property is next door to a proposed

new development, or if it’s in an area that’s

been subject to flooding, the agent must

tell prospective buyers rather than turning

a blind eye.

If your property may be prone to

weathertightness issues thanks to its

age or cladding, then the agent may

have to disclose this potential risk to

prospective buyers. If it doesn’t have any

weathertightness problems it may be

worth getting this confirmed in an expert

report by a qualified building inspector

who has professional indemnity insurance,

understands the strict legal requirements

of their role and carries out their work

in accordance with the New Zealand

Property Inspection Standard. This will

help make the sale process as efficient as

possible.

If you know there are issues with the

property, whether it’s something small like

a garage door not working properly, or a

bigger deal like an unconsented deck, it’s

best to discuss them with the agent you are

working with. They can help you decide

how to manage the problem, whether that

means fixing it, or disclosing it to potential

buyers. However, a licensed real estate

agent must not disclose any problems with

your property to buyers without getting

your consent first. If a seller doesn’t agree

on a disclosure, the agent is required to

stop working for them rather than disclose

any defects without consent.

These rules offer more protection to

buyers than the traditional attitude of

‘caveat emptor’ (buyer beware), which

assumed that the seller would always

know more than the buyer and any sale

was at the buyer’s risk. However, buyers

should always do their own research

about a property before signing a sale

and purchase agreement. Buyers should

also ask the agent about anything they are

concerned about, no matter how trivial it

may seem. It’s far better to get an answer

upfront than find out when it’s too late.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Make a list

There are lots of decisions to be made when building

a new home. Most need to be made before plans are

lodged for consent and construction gets underway.

Housing companies usually guide their clients through

this process.

Whether working with a housing company or

calling on the assistance of an architect or architectural

draftsperson there will be a lot of decisions. The process

will be easier for all concerned, if you have done your

homework first.

Carry out your own research on building trends and

choices. This will help you get a feel for what is available.

Before deciding on your builder, you will want to find

out whether the company will require you to choose

from their existing library of house designs and a set

range of features and fittings, or whether you will have

the freedom to have a more bespoke plan and to choose

any feature available on the market.

As you research, keep records of what you might like

to have in your own home. Initially, you will be idea

gathering. Take photos of aspects within house designs

which appeal to you along with the fittings you like.

List down the key points you would like in your

home:

• number of bedrooms, living areas and bathrooms;

• size of garage e.g. double or triple;

• open plan living, or one or more separated living

spaces;

• kitchen dynamics including whether a pantry or

scullery is a must;

• wardrobes – size and type e.g. walk-in robe in master

bedroom;

• office or study nook needs;

• laundry separate or in the garage;

• cladding and roofing types;

• storage facilities within the home including cupboards,

storerooms and attic trusses;

• type of heating and whether under floor

heating, a ducted system or a log fire;

• double or thermal low-emissivity windows;

• spaciousness of entryway; and

• indoor/outdoor flow.

Think of each room in turn and consider

your family requirements, noting down

features you definitely want.

Consider also fittings such as:

• the exterior doors;

How to stay warm and dry

Kiwi homes contain hidden health

dangers. Yet first aid for unhealthy

homes needn’t cost a fortune. It can

make a home more saleable as well as a

healthier place to live.

Many older homes are cold and damp

and sometimes have other hazards such

as lead-based paint and asbestos.

There are a number of steps to take to

make your home more healthy.

They include behavioural change,

the cheapest way to make your home

healthier is to open windows to ventilate.

If you’re out a lot, but want to increase

natural ventilation buy some security

window stays or locks that allow you to

leave windows slightly open when you’re

out. This can be a lot cheaper to buy and

run than high-tech systems.

If nothing else, insulate the ceiling and

under the house. The Energy Efficiency

and Conservation Authority (EECA) has

information on its website about funding

grants available through the Warm Up

New Zealand campaign.

By 1 July 2019 all rental properties

must have ceiling and underfloor

insulation Ventilation systems move

moisture from the air making the home

healthier and feel warmer.

Adding a sheet of heavy polythene

beneath a home can provide an efficient

moisture barrier beneath piled homes.

A heat pump will warm and ventilate

rooms in the winter and cool them in the

summer. Watch out for hard sell in this

market though and shop around before

buying heating or ventilation systems.

EECA suggests a number of different

options for secondary glazing, which is

cheaper than retrofitting double glazing.

Alternatives include DIY window

insulation, aluminium framed secondary

glazing on the inside of the existing

glazing, or acrylic sheets attached

internally.

The latest technology is Low-E films,

which are stuck to existing windows.

This can reduce heat loss by 42 per cent

says Chris Olson, general manager of

ThermafilmNZ.

Healthy homes aren’t just about

insulation and moisture removal.

Using fewer toxic chemicals can make

your home healthier to live in. Parents of

young children sometimes worry about

exposure to chemicals as do asthma

sufferers. As a result some buyers will

also be impressed.

Dust mites can make a home

unhealthy to live in. Use a hepa filter on

your vacuum cleaner or at least vacuum

more often and empty the bag between

cleans.

Decluttering as well reduces the places

that dust can build up.

Mould spores can be very bad for your

lungs. If mould builds up anywhere

in your house clean it off as soon as

possible. If this is an ongoing problem

consider ways to reduce the humidity.

If your home was built before the 1980s

watch out for lead paint and asbestos.

Both should be removed by an expert.
